Track Name: England is Falling Apart
You can’t be a movie star,
England is falling apart,
With cracks in the Ferris wheel,
Dog shit that litters the park,
Where we go,
We hold hands,
In the snow,

You can’t be an optimist,
England is falling apart,
The rose it is dying,
I’m trying to capture,
Your heart,
Where we stand,
See it fly,
From my hand,

Strangely I still love you,
Strangely I still love you,
Because I can,

You can’t be a dreamer,
Cos England is falling apart,
With sense out the window,
I just want to make a fresh start,
Just with you,
Climb the stairs,
Of my heart,

England,
Oh England is falling apart,
England,
Oh England is falling apart,
Track Name: Nowhere Town
You see the lights of Nowhere Town,
They flicker in your head,
They cut through every thought you have,
When you’re lying in your bed,

You see them from your hotel room,
And out beyond the stars,
When you’re crying like a little child,
And your fingers reach too far,

And it’s over, nothing you can do,
Except just be you,

You see the lights of Nowhere Town,
Wherever you may be,
They’re on the edge of your vision now,
They’re all that you can see,

You see them in the underpass,
And out beyond the sea,
I see them in your eyes tonight,
Monochrome and out of key,

And it’s over, nothing you can do,
Except just be you,

Just be you...
Track Name: Come with me to see the Stars
So come with me to see the stars tonight,
Gold and yellow, hanging oh so bright,
They wave their fingers everywhere,
Fireworks for us to share, tonight,

So come with me to see the moon tonight,
His smiling face is grinning oh so bright,
His silver dust spreads everywhere,
A little joke for us to share, tonight,

So come with me to see the sky tonight,
The Milky Way a galaxy of light,
Fourteen billion years is there,
A universe for us to share, tonight,
