Track Name: Bits and Pieces
Hi, hello, how are you?
No it wasn't really that nice, bumping into you,
No I don't think we should meet up some time,
Cos our small talk at parties, just makes me wanna cry.

(Chorus)
It's better to leave things where they used to be,
And aren't anymore.
Better to cut the ties and not see me,
Standing at your door.
Cos we've got too many bits and pieces,
Lying Around.
And there's no use trying,
To pick them off the ground

But I'll be fine, Look at you, you're fine,
You've got a brand new life, brand new friends, brand new guy.
And me, I don't open my mouth,
And when your name pops up on Facebook chat,
I just sign out.

(Chorus)
It's better to leave things where they used to be
And aren't anymore
Better to cut the ties and not see me,
Standing at your door,
Cos we've got too many bits and pieces,
Lying Around,
And there's no use trying,
To pick them off the ground

But I'll be fine
I'll be fine,
I'll be fine,
Look at you, you're fine.

Track Name: John
My name is John,
I've never really been sunburned,
Just a patch on my arm,
Hanging out the car window for too long.
When I ride my bike,
I always kept my helmet on
Sure I avoided the knocks,
But I missed the knock ons,

And it's dark,

You don't relate to me,
I don't relate to you,
And your eyes and your eyes,
Show you don't have a clue
But if I'm half awake and if you're half gone,
Well then I think it's time,
That we get it wrong,
That we get it wrong.

I've never watched the sun with hazy eyes,
At the end of a night that became two nights,
And when I went to France,
I didn't eat Frog's legs or any of that shite
And if I walked the coals,
Well, I'd have to put out the fire,
And Mr Frodo,
I don't believe I've ever been this far out of the Shire.

You don't relate to me,
I don't relate to you,
And your eyes, and your eyes,
Show you don't have a clue
But if I'm half awake and if you're half gone,
Well then I think it's time,
That we get it wrong,
That we get it wrong,
That we get it wrong,
That we get it wrong.

Track Name: Truth Is... (Feat. Rosa Nutty)
Is it lost?
I'm not sure what it's become,
At what cost?
Were you to think and tell me
Is it lost?

I reminisce,
Creating a scene,
I paint it red,
When it was green,
Truth is, I only paint what I want to see.

Is it lost?
How can I be sure?
When the cost?
Of leaving this, is one I can't afford.

Rewrite the words,
We whisper our lines,
You say clever things,
At more appropriate times,
Truth is I handpick the words I want to hear.

Truth is lost on me.
