Track Name: Week In Isle Of Wight
VERSE 1
When I first saw you I thought you were fit so I said,
Hey Baby are you feeling OK?
Then you moved your lips to speak words I did not understand,
I guess it was better of that way,
Hell I never really knew your name,
That number you gave to me never worked all the same,
It wasn't meant to be,
I guess we weren't meant to see each other again,
But I want you to know.

CHORUS
I just want you to know now,
I just want you to see me,
I just want you to know now,
That even though we only met for one week,
Only spoke together one week,
Only hung out for most nights of the week,
It was the week that changed my life,

VERSE 2
When it was over I packed up my things and then I said,
Hey Baby I'll see you someday,
You gave me your number and asked me one day to call you,
Hey Baby I'll call you someday,
Then I started driving away,
You wiped a tear away as your sis turned to you to say,
Wasn't meant to be,
I guess we weren't meant to see each other again,
But I want you to know,

CHORUS
I just want you to know now,
I just want you to see me,
I just want you to know now,
That even though we only met for one week,
Only spoke together one week,
Only hung out for most nights of the week,
It was the week that changed my life,

SAXAPHONE!

VERSE 3
Hell I never really knew your name,
That number you gave to me never worked all the same,
It wasn't meant to be,
I guess we weren't meant to see each other again,
But I want you to know.

CHORUS
I just want you to know now,
I just want you to see me,
I just want you to know now,
That even though we only met for one week,
Only spoke together one week,
Only hung out for most nights of the week,
It was the week that changed my life,
Track Name: Satisfied
VERSE 1:
I tried so hard to be with you but you're never there,
I tried so hard to spent time with you but you just don't care,
Everything I do is not good enough for you,
And no matter how hard I try you're just not satisfied,
I guess it's plain to see, that you're just no good for me,
So I'm gonna get in my best shoes tonight yeah,
I'm gonna find another girl, that's right yeah,

CHORUS
Coz I don't have time for players,
You know that shit is just no good for me,
And I don't have time for haters,
Yeah you can judge me all you want yeah,
I'm just gonna live my life so let's go.

VERSE 2:
I tried so hard to be with you but you're never there,
I tried so hard to spent time with you and you're unaware,
Every-time I'm wrong, you're always there to sing your song,
And every-time I'm right, you want wanna start a fight,

CHORUS
Coz I don't have time for players,
You know that shit is just no good for me,
And I don't have time for haters,
Yeah you can judge me all you want yeah,
I'm just gonna live my life so let's go.

CHORUS
Coz I don't have time for players,
You know that shit is just no good for me,
And I don't have time for haters,
Yeah you can judge me all you want yeah,
I'm just gonna live my life so let's go.
Track Name: They'll Do Anything
VERSE 1:
Of all the boys that you could go for why did you go for me?
Of all the pretty boys that want you why did you go for me?
Those guys follow you on Facebook baby just so they know your name,
Maybe that is stalking but it's better all the same,

CHORUS
Those guys will do anything just to know you,
Those guys will do anything if you care,
To even know their names,
To even know their names,

VERSE 2:
Every-time I see you walking I hope you don't see me,
Every-time you turn to face me I hope you don't greet me,
Those guys follow you on Facebook Baby just so they can see your pictures,
A different type of inebriation but at least they get their fixes,

CHORUS
Those guys will do anything just to know you,
Those guys will do anything if you care,
To even know their names,

CHORUS
Those guys will do anything just to know you,
Those guys will do anything if you care,
To even know their names,
To even know their names,
To even know their names,
Oh Baby, oh baby yeah
To even know their names,
To even know their names,
Track Name: Bad Boys
VERSE 1
And so your standing at my door, alone
Something tells me that you just left home,
It's fair to say you could not take his beatings anymore,

And now you're standing in my room, in tears,
Emotions ganging up in the reflection of your tears,
You're shaking like a leaf and you're stuck with the belief that he might have followed you here,

CHORUS
You'll always go, for the bad boys,
No you don't care, for no good guys,
You'd rather be, used by bad boys,
You'd rather be, be abused

VERSE 2
She has big bruises on her arms, by the bones,
Peppered with holes where the needles used to go,
The broken spirits for the love of a guy who is lower than fucking low

And so I tried to comfort you,
I said you can't go back but I know you always do,
And even if you don't you'll find another guy another looser you think is cool,

CHORUS
You'll always go, for the bad boys,
No you don't care, for no good guys,
You'd rather be, used by bad boys,
No you don't care, for no good guys,
You'd rather be, used by bad boys,
You'd rather be, be abused
Track Name: Fight Fight Fight
VERSE 1:
If you go outside you see no-one cares for the problems with the place,
They blame the poor, that's the only thing they know,
They say cap the welfare, can everyone and cap everything else,
There is no time for anyone to live

PRE-CHORUS
But the system is all wrong,
And the money it's all gone,

CHORUS
Unless you fight, fight, fight
You will never, ever beat them,
Unless you try, try, try,
You will never, ever defeat them,
It's what you need to know,

VERSE 2:
Lots of people in the street think it's down to immigration,
Ignorance is bliss, it seems that knowledge is power,
Coz if you look closely then you'll see that the problem's at the top,
Oh why, oh why, don't you look this up yourselves?

PRE-CHORUS
Coz the Country's fucking sank,
The rich are laughing to the bank,

CHORUS
Unless you fight, fight, fight
You will never, ever beat them,
Unless you try, try, try,
You will never, ever defeat them,

BRIDGE
Oh while all the right-wing policies blame immigration, it's fucking vile,
Coz while the rich just get richer we're left at the bottom, of the pile,

VERSE 3
If you go outside you see no-one cares for the problems with the place,
They blame the poor, that's the only thing they know,
Coz if you look closely then you'll see that the problem's at the top,
Oh why, oh why, don't you look up this yourselves?

PRE-CHORUS
But the system is all wrong,
And the money it's all gone,

CHORUS
Unless you fight, fight, fight
You will never, ever beat them,
Unless you try, try, try,
You will never, ever defeat them,
Unless you fight, fight, fight
You will never, ever beat them,
Unless you try, try, try,
You will never, ever defeat them,
It's what you need to know,
