Track Name: she loves the birds
she loves the birds

this world has gone crazy
life should be free and so easy
i can’t understand what’s gone wrong
it’s time to stand and be strong

she loves the birds (yeah)

ignore the lies of the papers
can’t you see that they hate us
please don’t let the hope be gone
we’ve all just got to hold on

this world is big enough
for everyone under the sun

she tells me that she has dreams
every night about the go betweens
and that i could make her heart melt
if only I could sing like lawrence from felt
Track Name: picture of you
Picture of you

Remember when we were young
Used to fall in love with everyone
Wishing all those days away
Now I want them back again

Somewhere in the back of mind
I wish that I could still find

Rush to work so we're never late
Become the people that we used to hate
Whatever happened to us
Did we really have to change so much

Somewhere in the back of mind
I wish that I could still find .....
.... a picture of you

In the back .... in the back of my mind
Track Name: am i losing you ?
am i losing you?

every time I see you
you’re getting taller all the time
when you don’t see me
I’m getting smaller in your mind

am I losing you ?

each time we go out
your hand doesn’t hold mine no more
when we say goodnight
your lips don’t touch mine no more
Track Name: mining for diamonds
mining for diamonds

when I saw you on the mountain
i had to kiss your face
as the snowflakes they were falling
they melted without trace
if I’d been mining for diamonds
i could have found them in your eyes
they shine and they sparkle
like bright stars in the sky

love is all you need , love is all you need
my heart is yours to steal, my heart is yours to steal

when I saw you on the ocean
i had to hold your hand
it was soft and it was gentle
like treasure in the sand
if I’d been diving for pearls
it would have been a waste of time
the only pretty thing I need to see
is your lips turning to a smile
