Track Name: All The Fish In The Sea
I hardly know you yet
But from the moment that we met
Something just clicked and we seemed to connect
I used to walk around my room drinking gin and smoking cigarettes
Wondering when I'd next see you again
Then I found out that you liked me
Which I did not expect
Although I've chosen to do nothing about it yet

You could have all the fish in the sea
Every girls falling at your feet you don't even acknowledge it
You could have all the fish in the sea
But you chose me
Why'd you choose me?
Because baby for the first time, for the first time
I'm out of my league

I'm not putting myself down
I know i deserve the right man
Who is willing to love me for who I am
But I've never been this childlike before
Sitting on my bedroom floor, thinking of you, thinking of you

That you could have all the fish in the sea if you wanted
Every girls falling at your feet, you don't even acknowledge it
You could have all the fish in the sea
But you chose me
Why did you choose me?
Because baby for the first time, for the first time
I'm out of my league
Track Name: Three Decades
I guess you're pushing on a bit no
And losing your style
Hair and beard is going grey and it has been for a while
When you invite me round to yours
I just don't know what to say
You're my only friend, in this big new place
But I must like you a little bit, because I bother to reply
Or maybe I just like the flattery from an older guy
Who is accomplished and successful in his own right

But it is too quick and its too soon
And it doesn't feel right
Because you only seem to call me when the day turns to night
This has happened to me now, a couple of times
And if you stay around me
You will make me lose my mind

Even though you're just my friend
Your intentions are so clear to see now
You won't take advantage of my naivety
Think of this the other way round, the other way round please
When I turn 30 am I going to be hitting on someone who's 18?
But I must like you a little bit because I bother to reply
Or maybe I just like the flattery from an older guy?
Who is accomplished and successful in his own right

But it's too quick and its too soon and it doesn't feel right
Because you only seem to call me when the day turns to night
This has happened to me now, a couple of times
And if you stay around me, you will make me lose my mind

I don't know how to love you
I don't know what to say
I guess we are both strangers
Who need to head our separate ways
Because it's too quick and its too soon
And it doesn't feel right
because you, only seem to call me when the day turns to night
You don't care who I am inside and your ego is sky high
And if you stay around me
You will make me lose my mind
Track Name: Dancing With The Night
He never wanted me
He wanted my body
Satisfied his needs, then went off with somebody else
I didn't deserve to be treated that way
Now if you're serious about this you cannot leave me
I will make you swear an oath to not deceive me
And if you do I will tie you to my bedside
To make sure that you don't run away
After we've finished dancing with the night

But it feels so right, doesn't it feel so right?
But I cannot risk having my heart broken again

I'm worried about you and your state of mind
You need to let the past go, put it all behind you
I've been through the same, you're not the only one
I have my doubts as well but you never listen
It's unfair to compare me to him, we're completely different
Can't you see that i'm just not that kind of guy
But baby do you not think that i've heard that line loads of times?

But it feels so right, doesn't it feel so right?
But we can not risk having our hearts broken again
But it feels so right, doesn't it feel so right?
But don't you know, don't you know, don't you know only fools rush in

Now if you're serious about this, you cannot leave me
I will make you swear an oath, to not deceive me
If you do I will tie you up to my bedside
To make sure that you just don't runaway
After we've finished dancing with the night

But it feels so right, doesn't it feel so right
But we cannot risk having our hearts broken again
But it feels so right, doesn't it feel so right?
So lets maybe be, maybe be more than friends
And either way, either way, either way I'm going to get hurt
