Track Name: Wander Alone
Life has a manual
You can get it online now
I work from the angle
I've been trapped at home and now I'm going out
Cause I've seen nothing but these walls forever
It makes a step outside seem so much harder

And the world its getting stronger
Pulling me to home
I know I can fight it and make it on my own
I know I can fight it and make it all alone

Cause I breathe when you breathe
You're the traffic lights I follow, you're like a directory
Through road rage and wide streets
You'd take me home but now I'm going out
I love you, it makes it so much harder
To leave you, but crowds they travel faster

And the world its getting stronger
Pulling me to home
I know I can fight it and make it on my own
I know I can fight it and make it all alone
I know I can fight it, fight it, fight it
I know I can fight it, fight it

I love you, it makes it so much harder
To leave you, but crowds they travel faster
And the world its getting stronger
Pulling me to home
I know I can fight it and make it on my own
I know I can fight it and make it all alone
I know I can fight it, fight it, fight it
I know I can fight it, fight it, fight it
I know I can fight it, fight it, fight it
I know I can fight it, fight it
Track Name: You're Only Perfect
I count myself lucky to know you
It's such an honour to hold you
I'm far gone looking at you
Cause no one takes my breath away
Quite like you, I like you, for me

You're a first place winner no flaws a full score
You're only perfect
You're a first place winner no flaws a full score
You're only perfect
You get a check check
A tick tick, right down my list

I'm oh so happy around you
I'm on a high so high beside you
I'm only held back by you
Cause no one makes me laugh the way
That you do, what you do for me, honey

You're a first place winner no flaws a full score
You're only perfect
You're a first place winner no flaws a full score
You're only perfect
You get a check check
A tick tick, right down my list list
You get a check check
A tick tick, right down my list

As you skip through my boxes
You go tick tick tick
You're like a zig zag down my page
Like an arrow down my list
And I'm lost for excuses
Tests and tricks
As long as you're mine
And you've checked that mark

You're a first place winner no flaws a full score
You're only perfect
You're a first place winner no flaws a full score
You're only perfect
You get a check check
A tick tick, right down my list list
You get a check check
A tick tick, right down my list
Track Name: Watching You Breathe
I’m stuck on your smile
That little one that you leave when you fall asleep
And I could lie on your heart
In the plains of the warmth of the sweet ticking beats

Just watching you breathe oh
Watching you breathe oh
Watching you breathe

Cause I’m along for the ride
Tiny waves as you drink up the air from the room
And I could close my eyes
And still see you there dunked in the light of the moon

Just watching you breathe oh
Watching you breathe oh
Just watching you breathe
Track Name: Mum's Song
Mum you’ve known me for oh so long
Since I stumbled on my very first words
You helped me trade diapers for shirts
And shirts for suits
You never let me down
Know I’m older but I’ll still come back
You’re my mother and I know you now
You told me so

Do you see yourself in me?
Did the seasons make a change?
Do you carry me with you in this life?
Are we blending in?
Are we fading away?
Is this us growing up?
Until the day the questions stop

Mum my hands are bigger than yours
And time moves a half tick slower
You taught me to walk in your shoes
And now they fit
You never let me down
Know I’m older but I’ll still come back
You’re my mother and I know you now
You told me so

Do you see yourself in me?
Did the seasons make a change?
Do you carry me with you in this life?
Are we blending in?
Are we fading away?
Is this us growing up?
Until the day the questions stop

Do you see yourself in me?
Did the seasons make a change?
Do you carry me with you in this life?
Are we blending in?
Are we fading away?
Is this us growing up?
Until the day the questions stop
Until the day the questions stop
Track Name: Dam Good Friend
Cause you’re totally frustrating, you never get things done
You always make excuses and their not even good ones
We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But I’m totally devoted, I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

I’ll stay online for ages, I’ll think what I should say
You probably barely read it but I’ll write it anyway
You log off conversations when I’m just about to send
You’re lucky I still bother I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

I’ll call the phone it disconnects, I’ll even try and send you txts
It takes a week to even get in touch enough for us to set
A place and a date but you’ll show up late in the end
And I’ll just sit and I’ll just wait cause I’m such a dam good friend
Such a dam good friend

We’ll find a place and order drinks, you always get that one that stinks
I always laugh and ask you why then you always let me have a try
You won’t get through that single glass even though we’ll spend
Half the day in the bar acting like we’re dam good friends
Dam good friends

Cause you’re totally frustrating, you never get things done
You always make excuses and their not even good ones
We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But I’m totally devoted, I’m such a dam good friend

We should fully cut it off- never speak again
But man, I think I love you, you’re just the best dam friend
Track Name: From Me To You
The leaves have grown like a roof above my head
And the sun pipes through all the little gaps nature has left
Breathing pollen pods like sherbet in the breeze
I hear candy wrappers when I tread on fallen leaves

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you

So step by step on a pathway grain by grain
Crunching symphonies and painting dirt with shadow stains
I’m watching light beams beam out dust in the air
And I’m whispering to the rocks that I’m almost there

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you

The daylight spice seems unbeatable and it’s almost that
But it ain’t quite as nice when I’m on my way back

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you

Cause it’s a mud path to a place a bit cleaner
But it’s spotless spotted with the sun specks dear cause
It’s the quickest route
From me to you
Track Name: Share My Time
Come sit with me
Decrypting poetry all day long
Plaiting plaits
And tying bow cause there's nothing going on

No one comes to rescue
Trapped fair maidens oh so shy
When life moves so quickly
There's no space to watch the sky

Cause I'm high above
In my castle in my tower
And I'm twiddling thumbs
Turning minutes into hours

And I don't know if you'll ever have the time
But if you're free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine
If you're free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine

Come tell me all your stories
And I'll tell you dozens more
Tales of happy ever after
Queens and folklore

But lords and dukes and princes like you
Must prioritise
I'll blow bubbles out my window
And watch days of years go by

Cause I'm high above
In my castle in my tower
And I'm twiddling thumbs
Turning minutes into hours

And I don't know if you'll ever have the time
But if you're free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine
If you're free
Then I would love for you to share some of mine
Some of mine
Some of mine
Some of mine
Track Name: The Loveliest Guy I Know
You give me a reason to dress up
You notice
You pull me out of my head
To focus

We can go anywhere
And stay until they close
You're the loveliest guy I know

You put your pen to the page
And plan things through
You never let me wait
When I rely on you

You leave me with memories
Everywhere we go
You're the loveliest guy I know

You're the loveliest guy I know
You're the loveliest guy I know
You're the loveliest guy I know
You're the loveliest guy I know

You're nothing short of a jester
When you want to be
You remember things
Even I forgot about me

We could be just fine together
Watching grass grow
You're the loveliest guy I know

You're the loveliest guy I know
You're the loveliest guy I know
You're the loveliest guy I know
You're the loveliest guy I know
Track Name: Overtime
You're a headache in pyjamas
Demanding Weetbix billable hours
I've got you booked in 5 to 9
You're my overtime
You're my overtime

Snugged up in covers
Telling tall tales about others
Squeezing out the daily grind
You're my overtime
You're my overtime

You can be the hardest project that I have
You can be a pool of problems I can't grab
You got me broken up, re-reading lines again
And there's no better pay than to fix it in the end

You melt me down like honey
You turn a deal when you wrap around me
You here is the bottom line
You're my overtime
You're my overtime
Track Name: Campfire Song
I took all of the classes
The smart dude with the glasses
Took when I chose what to take
Didn't read the guidelines
Got stuck on the sidelines
And I'm struggling with the subject's name

But I'm here in the barn now
Helping feed the cash cow
I'm in the headcount
Taking student discounts
Found my own couch in the postgrad lounge
I'm an overseas student if you want me out
A perfect P, just off a HD
Picking up the misprints in the policy
Cause I'll take what I get when I'm broke
And I'm always broke so watch me go

Heya in the courtyard start a campfire today
Burn up all the class stuff steal the speaker's buffet
All that we learnt and all that we know
Has helped us start a campfire watch it glow

Cause I can highlight with so many colours
Regurgitate the words of so many others
I'll answer things I don't know
Stand by my case take'em on like Rambo
Blame it on the text, blame it on Freud
If I'm being honest than I'll blame it on the boys
My mind's blown out- can I swap with yours?
I'll add in as a bonus my midsem scores, no?

Heya in the courtyard start a campfire today
Burn up all the class stuff steal the speaker's buffet
All that we learnt and all that we know
Has helped us start a campfire watch it glow
All that we learnt and all that we know
Has helped us start a campfire watch it glow

This aint good for my health, I can't ask people for help
I have to post my problems on the web page
Well I'll post this, add it to the list, wait to be publicly dissed by my tutor
As they're slaving off for their wage, well yay

Cause I'm here in the barn now
Helping feed the cash cow
And I won't get out
You can hear me shout
I'm here to eat, here to meet
Here to find my records and hit delete
In the meanwhile I'll have some fun
Try to prove to my mum that I'm not so dumb

Heya in the courtyard start a campfire today
Burn up all the class stuff steal the speaker's buffet
All that we learnt and all that we know
Has helped us start a campfire watch it glow
All that we learnt and all that we know
Has helped us start a campfire watch it glow
