Dominic S Becher Can't fault any song on this album but the standout for me is Jump. Its absolutely my favourite song at the moment -the spoken word section is amazing. Favorite track: Jump.

Track Name: Blue Eyes, Green Eyes
Blue eyes, just like I've seen them before.
Green eyes, they're so familiar but you're
Always changing sides.

And I'm colourblind.

How do I hold back my surprise when you're looking at me with
Your blue eyes, green eyes.
Haven't I seen that look before? You're looking at me and I'm looking at Your blue eyes, green eyes.

Blue eyes, just how they looked in the light.
Green eyes, how they change when we fight.

You say you're feeling something brand new,
Some days I catch you staring like you
Have known me all my life.

And I'm colourblind.

How do I hold back my surprise when you're looking at me with
Your blue eyes, green eyes.
Haven't I seen that look before? You're looking at me and I'm looking at Your blue eyes, green eyes.

Sometimes they're green and sometimes they're blue,
Sometimes it's me and sometimes it's you,
One day we're hot and the next day we're cold,
One day we're young and the next day we're old.

How do I hold back my surprise when you're looking at me with
Your blue eyes, green eyes.
Haven't I seen that look before? You're looking at me and I'm looking at Your blue eyes, green eyes.
Track Name: Six Days
Mmmmmm

If you told me it was over
I’d take six days to find my feet.
If you told me you were leaving
I won’t be grieving all week, all week.

And it’s not that I won’t miss you,
I just never find the time
To waste away on tears and tissues,
I’ll just remove you from my mind.

I’ll take one day to love,
One day to cry,
One day to pick myself up and be alright,
One day to regret and one day to be myself,
One day to forget and fall in love with someone else.

If you told me that you loved me
I’d take forever to believe.
So don’t tell me that you love me,
That’s one more lie I don’t need.

I’ll take one day to love,
One day to cry,
One day to pick myself up and be alright,
One day to regret and one day to be myself,
One day to forget and fall in love with someone else.

Time flies when you’re having fun
But I’ll never be one to stay on the ground.
Time flies if you let yourself run with it,
I’ll never be one to let you get me down.

I’ll take one day to love,
One day to cry,
One day to pick myself up and be alright,
One day to regret and one day to be myself,
One day to forget and fall in love with someone else.
Track Name: Quiet Nights
Heavy shoulders
And eyes that never meet.
It’s a battleground of dignity
Until someone retreats.

So I’m no longer faithful
And I’m programme to believe.
We used to get here early
And we were the last to leave.

We used to get here early
And we were the last to leave.

Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
For me.

Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
For me.

Every moment
That I want to spend with you
You’re halfway out the door again;
There’s always some excuse.

So I’m no longer faithful
And I’m programme to deceive.
We used to get here early
And we were the last to leave.

We used to get here early
And we were the last to leave.

Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
For me.

Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
Its another quiet night
For me.


Heavy shoulders
And eyes that never meet.
It’s a battleground of dignity
Until someone retreats.
It’s a battleground of dignity
Until someone retreats.
It’s a battleground of dignity


Its another quiet night (won’t you come home?)
Its another quiet night (won’t you come home?)
Its another quiet night (won’t you come home?)
For me. (To me)

Its another quiet night (won’t you come home?) (It’s a battleground of dignity)
Its another quiet night (won’t you come home?) (It’s a battleground of dignity)
Its another quiet night (won’t you come home?) (It’s a battleground of dignity)
Until someone retreats.
Track Name: Eve
Fall from the tree,
Set my soul alight.
Fall next to me,
Won’t you stay the night?

I’ll find a reason,
I’ll find a reason to put my trust in you.

I know I must find the truth in lies
But who do I trust when the fire dies?
I know they say that you live and learn,
But I’ll stay away so I never burn.
No I’ll never burn.

Fall from your grace,
The devil in disguise.
Fall on your face
And it will make you wise

I’ll find a reason,
I’ll find a reason to put my trust in you.

I know I must find the truth in lies
But who do I trust when the fire dies?
I know they say that you live and learn,
But I’ll stay away so I never burn.
No I’ll never burn.

Don’t you bite the apple Eve,
Don’t you bite.
Don’t you bite the apple Eve,
Don’t you bite.
What a tangled web we weave
Every night.
When we first try to deceive
It ain’t right.

I know I must find the truth in lies
But who do I trust when the fire dies?
I know they say that you live and learn,
But I’ll stay away so I never burn.
No I’ll never burn.
Track Name: Jump
When you’re in power you can be that late in,
Two whole hours and the crowd’s still waiting.
What has become of us?

It’s a about money, that’s what we’re told
So pick up the phone and sell your soul.
She used to be one of us.

If you keep dancing they’ll keep playing.
If you keep listening they’ll keep saying:
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
How high? How high?
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
How high? How high?

Kept like cattle but we act like sheep,
It’s an uphill battle and we’re in too deep.
Where do we place the blame?
In money or in fame?

If you keep dancing they’ll keep playing.
If you keep listening they’ll keep saying:
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
How high? How high?
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
How high? How high?

(Rap)
So we spend all our days trying to break from control
And we find some escape in the depths of our soul.
We listen to musicians because they make up feel free,
But is it real if they appeal to our sensibility and try to use it to sell us
The things we don’t need
Because to recognise manipulation makes me feel free.
And I know that it’s a shame that that’s the game that they play
But if we all had a well would we wish it away?
If there are these rules that we’re trying to break
Then why do we follow the people who take
And never give. I’ll never live a life of wisdom and grace
But I’d like to know that I can look my mother in the face.
And we all tell ourselves that we rebel and we defy
But we’re funding those who make the rules with music we buy.
We comply with restrictions that we put on ourselves
And idolise our captors and the stories they tell
Because we have to have an idol and have someone else to hate
And in a world of crime and violence music is our escape
That’s why we wait.

And we don’t care if she mimes and comes on two hours late.


If you keep dancing they’ll keep playing.
If you keep listening they’ll keep saying:
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
How high? How high?
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
How high? How high?
Track Name: On The Southbank
So many stories here
But all I see is you.
It seems like every star
I wished upon came true.
I hold your hand so tight
My knuckles turn white.
And as the sun goes down
Your face is doused in yellow light.

And all I can see
Is the sky and you and me.

The colours keep on changing,
So keep an eye on me,
Time is looming down on us now
But this water leads us to the sea.

And every step I take
Along this bridge I find
That you are always here
If only in my mind.
And I’m as blue as I can be
While you’re away but
There’s so much beauty here
I’ll hardly let my eyes stay shut.

And all I can hear
Is the sound of London cheer.

The colours keep on changing,
So keep an eye on me,
Time is looming down on us now
But this water leads us to the sea.

So I’ll meet you on the Southbank
I’ll meet you on the Southbank
I’ll meet you on the Southbank
I’ll meet you on the Southbank

And all I can hear
Is the sound of London cheer.

The colours keep on changing,
So keep an eye on me,
Time is looming down on us now
But this water leads us to the sea

I’ll meet you on the Southbank
I’ll meet you on the Southbank
Track Name: Feathers and Wax
I can run faster than you don’t hold me down,
One day I’ll pack up and I’ll leave this town.

I can sing louder than you don’t shut me up,
I will never lose sight of what I love.

When I fall, that’s when I wonder
Was it all worth it?

I can run faster than you don’t hold me back,
All I’m missing is the strength I lack.

I can sing louder than you til my voice, it breaks.
I can sing louder than you if that’s what it takes.

When I fall back down to earth it
Seems it all, yeah it was worth it.

We look around
For something inviting
For unholy ground,
Safe from the lightening
That singed our wings.
Why are we here,
Raising our voices?
It seems so unclear
But we all made our choices
To sing.
And that’s the main thing.

I can grow taller than you in so many ways.
Fly too close to the sun with my wings ablaze.

I can fall harder than you and when I land
I’ll be wax and feathers in your hands.

When I fall back down to earth it
Seems it all, yeah it was worth it.

We look around
For something inviting
For unholy ground,
Safe from the lightening
That singed our wings.
Why are we here,
Raising our voices?
It seems so unclear
But we all made our choices
To sing.
And that’s the main thing.

I’ve found that the meaning of life
Is to do what you love and try to survive
And hope that you don’t fall apart
When you finally open your heart
And find that the clothes on your back
Are nothing but feathers and wax
We all find the clothes on our backs
Are nothing but feathers and wax
We all find the clothes on our backs
Are nothing but feathers and wax

We look around
For something inviting
For unholy ground,
Safe from the lightening
That singed our wings.
Why are we here,
Raising our voices?
It seems so unclear
But we all made our choices
To sing.
And that’s the main thing.

We look around
For something inviting
For unholy ground,
Safe from the lightening
That singed our wings.
Why are we here,
Raising our voices?
It seems so unclear
But we all made our choices
To sing.
And that’s the main thing.
Track Name: The Chase
You go your way and I’ll go mine
But we end up in the same place every time.
We run in circles around our circle of friends
Now here we are in your car again

Who’s in love with who, here?
I’m in love with you dear.

It was only the chase,
Now I can’t get your face out of my mind
Like a change in the seasons
All of my reasons left behind.
It was only the chase,
Now I know that my place is by your side.
Better steady my breathing,
I hope you’re not leaving me tonight.
Oh you chase me until I land,
Then you catch me in your hands.

You drive me crazy then you drive me home,
I made you angry I can tell by your tone.
You say I tease you and I say you’re proud,
But there are some things that we don’t say out loud.

Like who’s in love with who, here?
I’m in love with you dear.

It was only the chase,
Now I can’t get your face out of my mind
Like a change in the seasons
All of my reasons left behind.
It was only the chase,
Now I know that my place is by your side.
Better steady my breathing,
I hope you’re not leaving me tonight.
Oh you chase me until I land,
Then you catch me in your hands.

As long as you keep chasing
I’ll always let you win.
And you’re waiting on my doorstep
And I’ll always let you in,
I’ll always let you in.

It was only the chase,
Now I can’t get your face out of my mind
Like a change in the seasons
All of my reasons left behind.
It was only the chase,
Now I know that my place is by your side.
Better steady my breathing,
I hope you’re not leaving me tonight.
Oh you chase me until I land,
Then you catch me in your hands.
Track Name: Runaway Judy
Set fire to your words, tear out a page
Who said the world’s a stage?
It’s not a stage for you my dear,
Not a stage for you.

Not even birds can sing like you,
But they have wings that they can use.

Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.
Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.

Tears in his eyes, your father wished
That he could give you more than this.
You scream it’s hateful
It’s hateful being a girl.

And though they try to tell you ‘no’
You might as well just up and go.

Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.
Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.

The bad intentions that you meet
Mean that you end up on the street
But you should have been the
First Virginia.

You’ll be mentioned as the face of girls
Who don’t know their place.

Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.
Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.

And in Elephant and Castle by the roadside
Shakespeare’s sister, Judith, died.
Who could have known, who could have known,
Who could have known, who could have known,
Who could have known, who could have known,
Who could have known, who could have known,
All she needed was a room of her own?

Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.
Runaway, runaway, runaway Judy.
Track Name: My Old Bedroom
I live in a treehouse,
I live in a box,
If you come into my room please don’t forget to knock.

I live in the ocean,
I live on a boat,
I live in a rainy day and I forgot my coat.

Where do you live, where do you live?
Where is your home? Are you alone?
Where do I live can you show me the way?
Because I don’t know who I am these days.

I live with my best friends,
I live with my mum,
I live in a rocket heading straight towards the sun.

I live in a library,
I live in a dorm,
I live in a jailhouse in an orange uniform.

Where do you live, where do you live?
Where is your home? Are you alone?
Where do I live can you show me the way?
Because I don’t know who I am these days.

I used to live with my family,
The pictures are still in their frames.
I want to move back into my old bedroom,
But it doesn’t feel the same.
Where do I live, where do I live?
Where is my home? Am I alone?
Where do I live can you show me the way?
Because I don’t know who I am these days.

I used to live with my family,
The pictures are still in their frames.
I want to move back into my old bedroom,
But it doesn’t feel the same.
Where do I live, where do I live?
Where is my home? Am I alone?
Where do I live can you show me the way?
Because I don’t know who I am these days.
