Track Name: Balloon String
She got hold of my balloon string
She won't let me fly away
I think that she wants me to stay.
She got hold of my guitar
She won't let me play
I think that she wants me to stay.

She's having trouble, she won't be told
She doesn't want to get the police involved.
Oh, she's having trouble, it's bought and sold
Where is she? Her food is going cold.

She got hold of my balloon string
She won't let me fly away
I think that she wants me to stay.
She's so gutted to be back in the U.K
I think that she wants me to stay.

She's being tortured, but she won't talk.
Will they ever let her walk?

She got hold of my balloon string
She won't let me fly away
I think that she wants me to stay
She's selling my body parts on ebay
I think that she wants me to stay.

She's a dangerous woman, she makes grown men cry
She is a dangerous woman, you might as well say 'bye bye'.

She got hold of my balloon string
She won't let me fly away
I think that she wants me to stay.
She got hold of my guitar
She won't let me play.....
Track Name: Did I Didn't I?
Did I didn't I hold my head up high
Did I didn't I hold my head up high
You gotta try
Did I didn't i hold my head up high
Ain't nothing but sunshine

Did I didn't I do what I must do
Did I didn't i do what I must do
To make it through
Did I didn't i do what I must do
Ain't nothing but the truth

Didn't I look you up, didn't I look you down
Oh I can see you're busy just fooling around
Didn't I look you up, didn't I look you down
Oh take your time but don't take mine

Did I didn't I think that it would last
Did I didn't I think that it would last
You had to ask
Didn't I didn't i think that it would last
Ain't nothing but the past

Didn't I look you up, didn't i look you down
Oh I can see you're busy just fooling around
Didn't I look you up, didn't I look you down
Oh take your time but don't take mine.
Track Name: Who Do You Think You Are (acoustic)
Good friends come, good friends go
There's just one thing I'd like to know and that's
Who do you think you are?
Light my fire, lift me up
Pour some coffee in my cup oh
Who do you think you are?
You stood me up, you let me down
You turned my smile into a frown oh
Who do you think you are?
You play your part then slipped away
And left me shattered torn and frayed oh
Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you, who do you think you
Who do you think you are?

Broken signs, perfect crimes
Take what's yours and leave what's mine
Who do you think you are
I never guessed, I never dreamed
Someone like you could be so mean
Who do you think you are

Who do you think you, who do you think you
Who do you think you are?

You gotta give what you want, take what you need x2

Every morning, everyday
You took my little heart away oh
Who do you think you are
When i asked for it back you said
"There is no chance of that"
Who do you think you are

You gotta give what you want, take what you need x2

You kept me up all night, you never played it right
Your dirty little violin baby
You need to practice more, oh what you waiting for?
Never go out walking on your own.

Never go out walking, never go out walking,
Never go out walking on your own.

You made an effort, you made me sure
It was you that I was living for
Who do you think you are
Good friends come and good friends go
There's just one thing I'd like to know and that's
Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you, who do you think you
Who do you think you are? x3
Track Name: To My Delight (acoustic)
To my delight my heart is on a string
To my surprise I haven't changed a thing
I just keep on with my normal life
To my delight my heart starts to fly
(To my delight my heart starts to fly)

Now in daylight I feel you standing near
Right by my side and whispering in my ear
Words that ring so cool and clear and pierce my foggy mind
To my delight I find that you are mine
(To my delight I find that you are mine)

Oh- oh - Keep your eyes on me
Oh- oh - There's nothing else to see
Keep your eyes one me

I see you smiling we're going to have some fun
Last time I felt this way well I was pretty young
Turn up the music, I'll open up some wine
To my delight I find that you are mine
(To my delight I find that you are mine)

Oh -oh - I've got my eye one you
Oh- oh- There's no-one else in view
I've got my eye on you

When you came to me you knocked me off my feet
Driving the wrong way up a one-way street
Don't feel the need to look for the reason why
To my delight my heart starts to fly
To my delight my heart starts to fly.
Track Name: L.A. (acoustic)
When you're in trouble
Need to find a way to get away
Dig a tunnel
Or book a flight and move to L.A.
The sun is shining
And all the girls they look so fine
The city's trying
To lift your spirit and to ease your mind.

I want to go there but not at the moment

Cos I like England
But the rain it comes down everyday
And it's angry
People always have to much to say

I want to leave here and go somewhere peaceful

Woh- I want to move to L.A.
Who- I think it is the right place, right place, woh.

California
Everyone is off to Hollywood
I know you've been there
And i would go if I could
But I'm waiting
For something somewhere to fall into place
I don't know what
I've got to make sure that it's not too late

I want to go there but not at the moment.

Woh- I want to move to L.A.
Woh- I think it is the right place, right place, woh.

Woh- I want to move to L.A.
Woh- I think it is the right place, right place, woh.
Woh- City of the Angels
W0h - I think it is the right place, right place woh.
