# Title Duration
1 Parade
WHEN THE SLOW PARADE WENT PAST
IT FELT SO GOOD YOU KNEW IT COULDN’T LAST
AND ALL TOO SOON THE END WAS GONNA COME
WITHOUT A WARNING
AND YOU’D HAVE TO JUST GO HOME

AND THE WAY IT ALL WENT BY
WHEN SOMEBODY SAID COME ON IT’S GETTING LATE
AND YOU THOUGHT THE WORLD MIGHT END
IF YOU JUST LOOK THE OTHER WAY
NOW YOU WISH THAT YOU HAD STAYED

WHEN THERE’S SO MUCH MORE THAT
YOU COULD SEE
IF YOU’D JUST STICK AROUND
ALL THE STREETLIGHT SECRETS
WHISPERING FOR YOU TO COME BACK OUT

OH NO 
THERE’S SO MUCH MORE THAT YOU NEED TO WORK OUT
OH NO
YOU DON’T WANT THAT PARADE TO LEAVE YOU NOW

NOW THE DAYS ARE ALL THE SAME
IN A TOWN SO BIG THAT NO ONE KNOWS YOUR NAME
AND THE PEOPLE FADE AWAY
AND ALL THE STARS ARE JUST A FLICKER
AND YOU’RE LEFT THERE ALL ALONE

WHEN THERE’S SO MUCH MORE THAT
YOU COULD SEE
IF YOU’D JUST STICK AROUND
ALL THE STREETLIGHT SECRETS
WHISPERING FOR YOU TO COME BACK OUT

OH NO 
THERE’S SO MUCH MORE THAT YOU NEED TO WORK OUT
OH NO
YOU DON’T WANT THAT PARADE TO LEAVE YOU NOW
 
WHEN THE MUSIC’S OVER
BUT THE SONG STAYS IN YOUR HEAD

2 She's So Mean
I KNOW A GIRL 
SHE GETS WHAT SHE WANTS ALL THE TIME 
CUZ SHE’S FINE 
BUT FOR AN ANGEL SHE’S A HOT HOT MESS 
MAKE YOU SO BLIND 
BUT YOU DON’T MIND 

CUZ SHE’S AN UPTOWN 
TURN AROUND 
ANYTHING GOES GIRL 
SHE’S A HARDCORE CANDY STORE 
GIVE ME SOME MORE GIRL

SHE’LL MAKE YOU TAKE HER TO THE CLUB 
BUT THEN SHE LEAVES WITH HER FRIENDS 
SHE LIKES TO STAY LATE AT THE PARTY 
CUZ THE FUN NEVER ENDS 
AND ALL HER CLOTHES ARE ON THE FLOOR 
AND ALL YOUR RECORDS ARE SCRATCHED 
SHE’S LIKE A ONE WAY TICKET 
CUZ YOU CAN’T COME BACK 

YEAH – YOU WANT HER 
BUT SHE’S SO MEAN 
(YOU’LL NEVER LET HER GO)
(WHY DON’T YOU LET HER GO)

YOU KNOW
THAT IF YOU DON’T SHUT YOUR MOUTH
SHE’LL FREAK OUT
YOU BETTER GET YOURSELF TOGETHER
CUZ SHE’S BRINGING YOU DOWN NOW
YEAH BOY YOU BETTER YOU BETTER

CUZ SHE’S AN UPTOWN
TURN AROUND
ANYTHING GOES GIRL
SHE’S A HARDCORE CANDY STORE
GIVE ME SOME MORE GIRL

SHE’S GOT A WICKED SENSE OF HUMOR
CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT SHE SAYS
SHE DRINKS BACARDI IN THE MORNING
TIL IT GOES TO HER HEAD
AND ALL YOU WANT IS JUST TO HOLD HER 
BUT SHE DON’T GO FOR THAT
SHE HAS A HARD TIME COMING
WHEN SHE CAN’T HIT BACK

YEAH – YOU WANT HER 
BUT SHE’S SO MEAN 
(YOU’LL NEVER LET HER GO)
(WHY DON’T YOU LET HER GO)

EVERY NOW AND THEN 
SHE MAKES YOU JUST A LITTLE BIT CRAZY
SHE’LL TURN THE KNIFE INTO YOUR BACK
AND THEN SHE’S CALLING YOU BABY
CRAZY

FEELING MY HANDS START SHAKING
HEARING YOUR VOICE I’M OVERJOYED
I’M SORRY BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE
YOU’RE ONLY GETTING BETTER

MAYBE YOU’RE SCARED YOU’LL BE LET DOWN
ARE YOU CRYING WHEN THERE’S NO ONE AROUND
THEN MAYBE

MAYBE IF YOU HOLD ME, BABY
LET ME COME OVER
I WILL TELL YOU SECRETS
NOBODY KNOWS
I CANNOT OVERSTATE IT

AND MAYBE

MAYBE LET ME HOLD YOU, BABY

4 Put Your Hands Up
YOU’RE WIDE AWAKE
YOUR HEART BEATS
SISTER MARY IN A BURNING DRESS
WITH GOD IN HER FEET
THEY TAKE AND TAKE
BUT NO MORE
CUZ NOW YOU’RE GONNA SHOW EM
WHAT THE NIGHT IS REALLY FOR
AND LEAVE YOUR HEART OUT ON THE DANCE FLOOR

PUT YOUR HANDS UP
IT’S ALRIGHT
SINGING O-WO-O
UNTIL THE SUNRISE
IF YOU CAN’T SLEEP
DO IT ALL NIGHT
SINGING O-WO-O
AND DON’T YOU EVER FADE AWAY

YOUR LIFE IS FULL
OF HARD DAYS
YOU TRY TO HOLD IT DOWN
BUT IT’S MORE THAN YOU CAN TAKE
THOSE FLASHING LIGHTS
JUST SHINE DOWN
IT’S HARD AS HELL TO TRY TO KEEP YOUR HEAD IN THIS TOWN
SO WE’RE GONNA BURN THE PLACE DOWN

PUT YOUR HANDS UP
IT’S ALRIGHT
SINGING O-WO-O
UNTIL THE SUNRISE
IF YOU CAN’T SLEEP
DO IT ALL NIGHT
SINGING O-WO-O
AND DON’T YOU EVER FADE AWAY

5 Our Song
I DON’T KNOW WHY SOMETIMES
WE SEEM SO APART
SEWN TOGETHER WITH A BROKEN HEART
I TRY TO SEE YOU
BUT IT’S GETTING DARK
WORDS KEEP FLOWING OUT
I WONDER WHAT THEY MEAN
YOU’RE LIKE A LITTLE PIECE OF KEROSENE
BUT GIRL YOU’VE ALWAYS
BEEN A FRIEND TO ME

AND I’VE BEEN
TOO PROUD SOMETIMES
CHASING FAULT LINES

OH NO
I’M GONNA BE THERE ALWAYS
AFTER THE PAIN HAS GONE AWAY
THE FEELINGS ARE SO STRONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG
OH NO
I’LL NEVER MAKE YOU CRY AGAIN
I’M GONNA SET THINGS RIGHT AGAIN
AND I WON’T LET EM GO WRONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG

I DON’T KNOW IF SOMEONE ELSE 
COULD HANDLE ME
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M SUPPOSED TO BE
YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO REALLY SEES
YOU GET ME
I FEEL SOMETHING GROWING 
DEEP INSIDE OF ME
WHAT I SAY AND WHAT I MEAN
ALWAYS SEEM TO DISAGREE

SO HELP ME
THROUGH THIS HARD TIME
CHANGE THESE FAULT LINES



OH NO
I’M GONNA BE THERE ALWAYS
AFTER THE PAIN HAS GONE AWAY
THE FEELINGS ARE SO STRONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG
OH NO
I’LL NEVER MAKE YOU CRY AGAIN
I’M GONNA SET THINGS RIGHT AGAIN
AND I WON’T LET EM GO WRONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG
THIS CAN BE OUR SONG

6 I Will
TONIGHT
LOOKING BACK ON ALL THIS LIFE
FUNNY HOW THE TIME GOES BY
AND HOW, SOMETIMES
IT SLIDES AWAY

TIME
SLIDING THROUGH THE DEAD OF NIGHT
YOU SHAKE UNTIL YOU START TO CRY
YOUR EYES WON’T DRY
TIL LIGHT OF DAY

AND SLEEP AWAY
DON’T LET IT GO
DON’T LET IT FADE
YOUR DREAMS MAY FADE
AND FALLING APART IS THE ONLY WAY
WE GO SO LOW
WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW I WILL

IF YOU GO
TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF ME
HANG IT BY THE PLACE YOU SLEEP
AND DREAM OF ME
DON’T LEAVE 

JUST SLEEP AWAY
DON’T LET IT GO
DON’T LET IT FADE
YOUR DREAMS MAY FADE
AND FALLING APART IS THE ONLY WAY
WE GO SO LOW
WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW I WILL

7 English Town
COME INSIDE THE AIR I BREATHE
WHILE THE BAND STILL PLAYS
IT’S THE END OF THE COLDEST WEEK
COME DOWN INTO THE SEA

EVERYBODY WANTS TO GET AWAY SOMETIMES
EVERYBODY NEEDS MISTAKES

WHEN THE SUN BREAKS
OVER THE EDGE OF AN ENGLISH TOWN
IT PULLS ME AWAY FROM A BAD DREAM
I DON’T KNOW WHY BUT I KNOW I’M NOT
EVER GOING BACK

IN THE DARK WE CAN LOSE ALL SLEEP
WE CAN BOTH BE KIND
I DON’T NEED THE PULLING APART OF SHEETS
TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE

BUT EVERYBODY WANTS TO GET AWAY 
FROM SOMETHING
EVERYBODY LOSE THEIR WAY

WHEN THE SUN BREAKS
OVER THE EDGE OF AN ENGLISH TOWN
IT PULLS ME AWAY FROM A BAD DREAM
I DON’T KNOW WHY BUT I KNOW I’M NOT
EVER GOING BACK

IT’S A NON STOP VOICE
THAT CAN LEAD YOU ON
BUT YOU CAN NOT CHANGE
04:37
8 How Long
SO MANY TIMES WITH YOU AND I
THOUGHT IT WAS RIGHT
BUT I WAS WRONG
IT’S TRUE
BUT I WOULDN’T FEEL THE WAY I DO
WITHOUT A SENSE OF SOMETHING REAL
FOR YOU

IT’S ALL ABOUT A GOOD THING
SO I DON’T MIND HOLDING ON

BUT HOW LONG
ARE YOU GONNA MAKE ME WAIT
AND HOW LONG
ARE YOU GONNA HESITATE
I LOVE THE WAY WE’RE CARRYING ON
BUT BABY HOW LONG

YOU KNOW THE WAY THEY ALWAYS SAY
DON’T MAKE IT NEVER IT’S BETTER LATE
WELL, THAT’S TRUE
BUT TELL ME WHY
MY CAUTIOUS ANGEL
MUST YOU PUT IT IN MY FACE
LIKE YOU DO

IT’S ALL ABOUT A GOOD THING
SO I DON’T MIND HOLDING ON

BUT HOW LONG
ARE YOU GONNA MAKE ME WAIT
AND HOW LONG
ARE YOU GONNA HESITATE
I LOVE THE WAY WE’RE CARRYING ON
BUT BABY I DON’T

EVER WANNA MAKE YOU FEEL TOO RUSHED
MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE LOVE WOULDN’T BE ENOUGH
OR THAT IT’S JUST ANOTHER DON’T MEAN MUCH
LIKE A HIGH SCHOOL CRUSH 
MAKE YOU WANNA RUN
CAN’T YOU SEE THE WAY I NEED YOU BABY
AND I WANT YOU IN MY ARMS EVERY NIGHT
OF MY LIFE
BUT TELL ME
HOW LONG
ARE YOU GONNA MAKE ME WAIT
AND HOW LONG
ARE YOU GONNA HESITATE
I LOVE THE WAY WE’RE CARRYING ON
BUT BABY HOW LONG

DRINKING COFFEE FROM A PAPER CUP
TO THE SOUND OF THE RADIO

IN A PARKING LOT
SHAKING OFF HER DRESS

IN A TOWN WHERE DREAMS DON’T FIT

BUT HE NEVER REALLY GAVE ENOUGH
AND SHE COULDN’T TAKE NO MORE

CUZ HE’S NEVER GONNA GET IT
NEVER GONNA GET IT
AND SHE’S NEVER GONNA LIVE THAT WAY

HE SAYS OH MY GOD

10 The Way
ALL I SEE
STANDING THERE IN FRONT OF ME
MAYBE WE WERE HERE BEFORE
I JUST DIDN’T WANNA BELIEVE

BUT IN ALL THAT TIME
WE NEVER TALKED
YOU WROTE IT ALL DOWN
SO I COULDN’T IGNORE IT

THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
GUESS YOU DON’T WANT ME

WE HAD LOVE
ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ENOUGH
BUT THEN IT GOES AWAY
I JUST DIDN’T WANNA GIVE UP

IT FEELS LIKE HELL
TO LET YOU WALK
I BET IT ALL DOWN
BUT I COULDN’T AFFORD IT

THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
GUESS YOU DON’T WANT ME

AND I NEVER REALLY SAID IT BEFORE
BUT I REALLY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN YOU SO MUCH MORE

BUT THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE

THIS IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT TO BE
GUESS YOU DON’T WANT ME

11 Like Sugar
I’M WALKING BEHIND YOU
CAUGHT IN THE WAY YOU
GIVE AWAY ALL YOUR SECRETS
YOU’RE TAKING THE HIGH ROAD
PICKING YOUR BATTLES
JUST LIKE THE DAY I FOUND YOU

I JUST WANNA MAKE YOU GO AWAY
BUT YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
YEAH YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
I JUST WANNA MAKE YOU GO AWAY
BUT YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
YEAH YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR

I’M STARTING TO WANT YOU
MORE THAN I WANT TO
THIS AIN’T MY FINEST HOUR
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT YOU
THAT I COULD GET INTO
SOMETHING THAT’S DEEP INSIDE YOU

I JUST WANNA MAKE YOU GO AWAY
BUT YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
YEAH YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
I JUST WANNA MAKE YOU GO AWAY
BUT YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
YEAH YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR

IF I TURN AWAY
I’LL COME BACK SOMEDAY

I JUST WANNA MAKE YOU GO AWAY
BUT YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR
YEAH YOU TASTE LIKE SUGAR

12 Sleeping at The Wheel
I-I COULD BE ANYTHING
BUT FOR THE FAULTS THAT I’VE 
ACQUIRED ON MY WAY
WE – WE WERE THE END OF IT
BUT NOW WE SEE THE SUN
SHINING IN OUR FACE
WE SEE THE SUN
SHINING IN OUR FACE

SO COME ON COME ON
WE CAN BE SAVED
THE LIVES WE LIVE
THE WARS WE WAGE
WHEN EVERYONE JUST TELLS US HOW TO FEEL
WE’RE SLEEPING AT THE WHEEL

I – I WOULD GIVE ANYTHING
BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD
I’M HERE AND SO AWARE
WE KNOW THE END IS OVERRATED
WE’VE BECOME THE WALLS WE RAISE
WE DON’T BELIEVE ENOUGH BUT WE STILL CARE
STANDING ON THE EDGE WITHOUT A PRAYER

SO COME ON COME ON
IT’S ALL WE’VE GOT
OUR HANDS ARE FULL
OUR LIVES ARE NOT
THE LOOSE AFFILITATION WITH THE REAL
SLEEPING AT THE WHEEL

ALL OF THE LOVE WE GAVE
ALL OF THE TIME WE LOST
NOW THESE HANDS ARE TIED
I CAN’T HELP THINKING

THAT I WAS IN A DAZE
I WAS LOSING MY PLACE
I WAS SCREAMING OUT AT EVERYTHING
WAITING FOR THE WALLS TO COME DOWN
BEFORE MY MOMENT STARTS TO FADE
EVERYTHING THAT’S PERFECT FALLS AWAY


SO COME ON COME ON
WE CAN BE SAVED
THE LIVES WE LIVE
THE WARS WE WAGE
WHEN EVERYONE JUST TELLS US HOW TO FEEL
WE’RE SLEEPING AT THE WHEEL

SOME PEOPLE WANNA BE THE ONE
I ONLY WANNA SEE YOUR FACE SMILING
