A SIDE OF ME

There's something that you should know
It's something that I don't often show
I keep it hidden well
I only ever tell a very special few
And you

I'm like everyone else
I keep some things to myself

Can I show you a new side of me?
A side nobody else sees
Open me up, come look inside
With you I don't want to hide
Take a look and you'll find that there's more to me
More than meets the eye
It's waiting on the other side

You want to know
But what if I told you there's a very good reason

Why I keep it under wraps
If I told you perhaps you wouldn't like me quite as much

But I don't want to be fake
So it's a chance I'm willing to take

CHORUS

 



BESIDE THE POINT

You'd think that by now I'd be used to
Your selfish and miserable ways
But you're back on the warpath again
Playing the victim like always

How can you be so judgemental?
You act like the world's out to get you
Not everyone wishes you harm
Only the ones who have met you

'Cause there'll be times when you'll want to break
But that's beside the point
And the point I'm trying to make
Is that it's all about the give and take
So pick your battles well
And make sure you give 'em hell for me

Whatever I felt when I met you
It's slowly evolved into hate
'Cause with you it seems it's always my job
To pacify, to please and to placate

CHORUS

My patience, like you hair, is wearing thin
And I'm really hoping karma is a real thing
Then maybe it'll do the job for me
And put you out of your misery

CHORUS

 



SEASIDE

Look out beach, here we come
Time for fun in the sun
And if you'd only say that you'd come along
I'll be the lucky one

I'll bring my trunks for a swim
The pair that make me look slim
And if the water's warm then we'll jump in
And let the fun begin

But the sun never stays out
It gets too cold to sunbathe or throw a ball about
And then comes the rain
And we all run for cover 'til the sun comes out again then
Come join us, it'll be great
Sand and sunshine await
We're so excited, we just can't wait
To have a seaside escape

CHORUS

 



DECIDE FOR YOURSELF

You could wait a lifetime to hear what they are gonna do
But why should they decide for you?
They're only human too

Don't waste time sitting on the fence
Take control of circumstance
So roll the dice and take a chance
What have you got to lose?

This train is a non-stop
It's not gonna wait, so hurry up
It's just you, no one else around to help make your mind up
So learn to decide for yourself

The clock still ticks, the world still turns
We live, but do we really learn?
Not that it's my concern, but I don't think we do

This train is non-stop
It's not gonna wait, so hurry up
It's just you, no one else around to help make your mind up
So learn to decide for yourself
So learn to decide for yourself
So learn to decide for yourself
