Track Name: Short Fuse
Verse 1
For too long now I’ve been biting my lip,
Bottling it all up and keeping a tight grip,
But I’ve decided that enough is enough
And if you cross me now then I will cut up rough

Chorus
Coz I’m burning on a short fuse
I’m burning on a short fuse
My advice to you is keep me happy today
If you mess with me there’ll be a price to pay
Instead of holding it in I’m going on the attack
I’m cutting loose so don’t you hold me back

Verse 2.
For too long now I’ve always been the nice guy
Happy go lucky and someone on who you could rely
But you’ve pushed me out beyond what I’m able to accept
And I’m ready to explode the first chance that I get

Chorus

Verse 3.
For too long now I’ve always tried to please
I went along with things to make life more easy
But you’ve worn me down with your ever changing moods
And now it’s time to turn the tables on you

Chorus

I’m burning on a short fuse x 4
My advice to you is keep me happy today
If you mess with me there’ll be a price to pay
Instead of holding it in I’m going on the attack
I’m cutting loose so don’t you hold me back
Track Name: Hard To Please
Verse 1.
I want to see you every night, but you say that just wouldn’t be right
I want to take you dancing till dawn, You say that would be a crushing bore
I want to hold your hand as we walk, you say that is just idle talk
So I say tell me what do you want, and you say just give me all you can
But whatever I do give, you’re so hard to please.

Chorus.
You’re so hard, (whatever I do), You’re so hard to please
You’re so hard, (whatever I try), You’re so hard to please

Verse 2.
I want to call round to your home, but you say you want to be on your own
I want to take you to a local bar, but you say that is a step too far
I want to be seen on the street with you, but you say you’ve got too much to do.
So I say tell me what do you want, you say give all you can
But whatever I do give, you’re so hard to please.

Chorus.

But whatever I do give you’re so hard to please.

Chorus.

Verse 3.
I want to kiss you on the hand, but you say that’s one thing that you can’t stand
I want to watch you comb your hair, but you say it would be rude to stare
I want my friends to see us as a pair, but you say it’s better when no-ones there.
So I say tell me what you want, you say give me all you can.
But whatever I do give, you’re so hard to please.
Yeah whatever I do give, you’re so hard to please
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Know
Verse 1.
I can see coming down the street
A woman that I don’t want to meet
Cos she’ll want to talk to me about you
To tell me about the things that you do
She’ll tell me about the guys that you’ve seen
And all the latest places where you have been
She tells me coz she thinks that it might help
But it just makes me feel sorry for myself

Chorus
So I don’t wanna know if the rumours are true
I don’t wanna know how it’s going for you
I don’t wanna know how you’ve been
I don’t wanna know when it’s you without me
I don’t wanna know when it’s you without me.


Verse 2.
She’ll tell me you’ve been seen in a new car
That’s better than the one I drive by far
She’ll mention that you seem to wear a permanent smile
Oh and that you’ve changed to a new hair style
She’ll tell me about the little trip you took away
To that special place we used to stay
She’ll say that you seem to be so happy
and show no signs of missing me

Chorus

Chorus

Verse 3.
So unless it has now all gone sour
And you’ve decided you’re missing me from afar
Or that you’re now staying in on your own
And are just hoping that I might phone
Or perhaps you’ve decided it was good with me
And you want to go back to how it used to be
Then I don’t wanna hear what she has to say
I’ll drop my head and go the other way
Track Name: The Old Magic
Verse 1.
Back in the day when me and the boys in
the gang, we ruled these streets around here
And all the local girls they used to hang around
Coz they knew that we were the guys to be near.
But as time went past then one by one
The boys moved on and settled down
And for a while it was the same for me until
I shed responsibility. And now.

Chorus
I’m back and maybe a little bit older
I’m back daughters lock up your mothers
I’m back I’m primed and I’m loaded
I’m back, and ready to show the old magic.
The old magic, I’m just a little bit older
but ready to show the old magic.

Verse 2.
Maybe I’ve changed and my shirts are a little too tight
but I feel that I’m as sharp as a knife
So come now Girls don’t miss what’s on offer here
I’ve experience that I’m willing to share.
The boys in the gang aren’t on the street
But I’m back out there and willing to meet.
It’ll be the same when the lights go out
I just might need a little blue pill.

Chorus

Verse 3.
What the boys in the gang do not know,
is that whilst they all sit at home
Their honour is being boosted by one of their own
putting in the time needed to regain the throne

Chorus

Then
I’m back and living the dream
I’m back and I’m out on the scene
I’m back, I’m looking for fun
I’m back, I’m a reloaded gun.
I’m back to show the old magic
Track Name: My Fantasy
verse 1
I never want to face it but I don't want to do the things you do they're not me thats for sure.
I know we can't replace it the spark that made us what we were it's not there anymore.

Six years of our life well that's a lot to throw away.

verse 2
I don't want to lose you but to stay would be a mistake and we would argue more and more.
I never meant to use you but it's all you give and me take so let me walk out of that door.

Six years of our life well that's a lot to throw away.

chorus
Yellow hair with knee length boots you were my fantasy
Yellow hair with knee length boots you were my fantasy
But in reality we've changed were not the same anymore oh yea were not the same anymore.

verse 3
The moaners and the doubters said we were too old too young but we chose to ignore
Will surely wag their fingers and like they say of course that day we were right after all.

chorus
Yellow hair with knee length boots you were my fantasy
Yellow hair with knee length boots you were my fantasy
But in reality were not the same anymore oh yea were not the same anymore.
Yellow hair with knee length boots you were my fantasy
Leatherwear and satin sheets you were my fantasy
