Track Name: Eat My Heart Out
Tiptoe past my door
Just so I can’t hear the floor creak
But your shadow found it’s way onto my curtain

I sleep in the spare bed
You sleep with your head
Just a few inches behind this wall
I still hear the breath you’d blow

Eat my heart,
Eat my heart,
Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

Eat my heart,
Eat my heart,
Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

We pass in the street
Tense up and look down to our feet
But there’s nothing interesting on mine

All these pictures are now rendered useless now honey
Because I can’t look at them without feeling the guilt that you gave to me
And the illusion that it was better days back then

So eat my heart,
Eat my heart,
Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

Eat my heart,
Eat my heart,
Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

But my heart’s not ready,
No it’s still not quite steady
But I’ll just keep falling in
Just keep falling in

And these promises I’m making
Potentially I’ll be breaking
And the ground I’m standing’s thin
Ground I’m standing’s thin

Sure I loved the image of the house in the valley and the kids in the gardens keeping their knees muddy
Sure I’d love to sit around in chairs watching the sunrise smoking cigarettes

Call me stubborn,
Call me right,
Call me anything you bloody well like

Eat my heart,
Eat my heart,
Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight

Eat my heart,
Eat my heart,
Oh I’ll eat my heart out tonight
Track Name: Little Us
Little I,
Little you.
Little us, and what we’d do
Creatures used to personify
Providing laughs for you and I

We were always pure
Built on senseless cores
Open land to play
On a summers day

But it’s you
And it’s me
And it’s everything that we used to be
And I’m fighting with my head
Just to understand what was said

Feet to feet,
Hand to hand.
Mouth to ear to conjure a plan
Foolish deeds were to aspire
Cross ones toes and we’d go higher

We were always pure
Built on senseless cores
Open land to play
On a summers day

But it’s you
And it’s me
And it’s everything that we used to be
And I’m fighting with my head
Just to understand what was said

When we were young,
Oh did we fun
Causing trouble in the sticks
So home sweet home could cause a fix
When we were youthful
So honest and so truthful
We’d sing:
‘Smile and the world smiles with you’
Track Name: Bittersweet End.
She wore long brown hair and kooky clothes
And she loved the fact wherever she’d go
Would be overlooked by guys she didn’t know

But a Summer’s evening in Mid-July
Among the arseholes telling lies
She saw her genuine guy

His name was carl and behind that smile
Saw humour, youth and a quirky style
And she figured she’d give him her time for a while

Now 10 years later with wedding bells,
Their family surround them to wish them well
And the life for two were on their way

“A little more love in a little less time and I’ll be fine
Cos my insecurities they are just, stacking up high
And the world I knew was with you
Still when I make to eat, I make for two”

Past the time when technology outgrew them
Another life was born unto them
Years they spent, teaching, learning
Well she grew character, and now they’re yearning

With crosswords on the kitchen table
Their love need no label
They’d just, rest where they lay
Pick their brains till the day

And on Carl’s last night, he had no worries no frights
He’d just confide in her heart
Until day came they’d part

Now his absence just leaves silence
And his silence just leaves tears
She’ll sit by that kitchen table
Listing all her fears

“A little more love in a little less time and I’ll be fine
Cos my insecurities they are just, stacking up high
And the world I knew was with you
Still when I make to eat, I make for two”

It’s the ones that surround us with thoughts and opinions that inspire
Will broaden our minds and only take us higher
We got what we loved so damn right, we loved what we got
It’s my favourite bittersweet end.
