This Door 03:03
This open room policy is getting hard to take, so can I hear again from Christmas Day all the good things that you said. Bruises black and blue they spread, before they fade away, but the light that's shining underneath, says maybe that's today. Well I can sleep upon the settee, I can sleep upon the floor, but I can't sleep beside your bed, because baby I want more. So I've pulled out the needle from the haystack, propped up my chair against the door, but my drum still makes a tap tap tap, that says baby I want more. This door, this door, is hanging off its hinges, this door This door, this door, I need some help to put it back, this door So look through the keyhole, but mind how you go, because you might not like the actors, who are starring in this show. The secrets in the details, the clothes upon the floor the empty bottle on the shelf and her moaning I want more. Well I can sleep upon the settee, I can sleep upon the floor, but I can't sleep beside your bed, because baby I want more. So I've pulled out the needle from the haystack, propped up my chair against the door, but my drum still makes a tap tap tap, that says baby I want more. This door, this door, is hanging off its hinges, this door This door, this door, I need some help to put it back, this door

Put It Back 04:54
You say your love is lost, but how was I know to know. You kept it up so long You say your love is lost, so was I just for show. You kept it up so long. So you pull my heart out, wrap it up and leave. Will you put my heart back please So you pull my heart out, wrap it in your sleeve. Will you put my heart back please Late nights in painters lane, we draw maps in the dark. I take the plunge, your lips are dry. Short sharp breaths in painters lane, we panic at the start. You turn away, my body sighs So you pull my heart out, wrap it up and leave. Will you put my heart back please So you pull my heart out, wrap it in your sleeve. Will you put my heart back please Push on now to a new light, you know this road is not the end.

The Promise 03:01
When I come back, come back in from my daydream The promise is I'll get to you. Should my reins slack, don't just stand there waiting The promise is I'll get to you. Doubtless fire burns, come back to me safely because my heart yearns, more than it has lately The promise is I'll get to you Well it all goes black and white when I see you standing there. Looking back don't seem so right, when I see you standing there. Sleep it comes down, blinding me with memories breaking through the clouds, shadowing this daydream The promise is I'll get to you The promise is I'll get to you When I come back, come back in from my daydream The promise is I'll get to you.

Won't you get up and go, live your life Won't you step up and show, the reasons why you're always wanting more, what you've got you can't ignore Now's the time take your chance, to move your mind There's no time for romance, if you cross this line you're always wanting more, what you've got you can't ignore Make your move now, you won't be alone Come what may down here the rain still pours Where's your get up and go to live your life, Why'd you stop when you know, the reasons why you're always wanting more, what you've got you can't ignore, keep your sensibilities, cus they'll bring you to your knees To your knees To your knees
