Track Name: Stormproof
This girl's pulling her weight, she wants
To really make it work this time
This girl's had enough of layin' down and cryin'
This girl's now jumpin' around like somebody set her feet on fire
This girl's now doing her best when she
Could've laid down and died..
She thought she'd had enough of rock 'n' roll.

She was stormproof to emotion
Stormproof to the blues
Stormproof on any ocean
Stormproof to the blues.

This not girl's kickin' herself for any time
Or stuff she's blown, no regrets..
This girl's developed a taste for being on her own.
This girl's not aware of time she decided
She ain't gonna get old, gotta stay young
Everthing gonna turn out fine, everything's
Gonna unfold
She thought she'd had enough of rock 'n' roll..

She was stormproof to emotion
Stormproof to the blues
Stormproof on any ocean
Stormproof to the blues.
Track Name: Get Lost!
When I called you up and I got you on the line
You had to make it quick you had a limit on your time
Were YOU freezing me out when you said you had to run?
It made me realise that I'm not your only gun.

Oh baby get lost, I love it when you're hot, I can't
Stand it when you're not
Oh baby get lost, are you laughing so loud
That it's making you cry?
And I'm sick and tired of living this lie...
Oh baby bye bye.

What you need is a man with his face pulled down
Some credit card king who will follow you around
Someone to keep tied to your apron strings
So You can make him jump on your trampoline.

Oh baby get lost, I love it when you're hot, I can't
Stand it when you're not
Oh baby get lost, are you laughing so loud
That it's making you cry?
And I'm sick and tired of living this lie...
Oh baby bye bye.

When the bullets fly I keep my head down low
Like a shell shocked soldier in a battle zone
I've got to camouflage my feelings
Let the white flag show
You're such a dirty fighter, You gotta go...

Oh baby get lost etc....
Track Name: Big Plans
I'll lead the way, I'll do the pushin' and shovin'
I'll book the room in some honeymoon hotel.
I'll light the lamps on the darkest of highways,
Just like magic put you under my spell.

Big plans for you and me
Big plans
Big plans for you and me
Better get ready.

Never been so certain and I've never been so sure
You've got me standin' on my fingertips and
howlin' for more,
Don't stop the party, I don't wanna settle down, Let's co for everything, let's go for it now.

Big plans for you and me
Big plans
Big plans for you and me
Better get ready....
Track Name: Don't You Go Giving Yourself Away
Don't you ever get afraid
Please tell me if you get bad feelings
I'm not a hero on parade, but I’ve got
Muscle if you need it.
I would send anybody to hell
If they ain't treating you well
You gotta hold your head up high and try
'Cos what they're saying and what I'm saying
Is don't go giving yourself away.

Don't you go giving yourself away, people start
Talking, don't you go giving yourself away, no, no
Don't you go giving yourself away little girl
What they're saying, and what I'm saying, is
Don't you go giving yourself away.

If you're ever feeling scared, and you get the
Shivers from a movie
Remember everything we shared, no-one else
Has ever moved me
I would break every written rule, risk being
Thought a fool
Ah beg, steal borrow and lie, even die
What they're saying, and what I'm saying, is
Don't you go giving yourself away.

Don't you go giving yourself away, people start
Talking, don't you go giving yourself away, no, no
Don't you go giving yourself away little girl
What they're saying, what I'm saying is
Don't you go giving yourself away. . .
Track Name: Gotta Look Away
I heard I made you sad and left you lonely girl
I only ever meant to bring you joy
I know hurt you bad and left you crazy girl I
I didn't mean to treat you like a toy.
Gotta look away
Gotta look away
Gotta look away 'cause I can't stand to see you cryin'.

Your eyes are full of tears, won't you forgive me girl
I swear I'll never do the same again
I thought that we both knew what we were
Doing girl
Now I realise I was to blame.

Gotta look away
Gotta look away
Gotta look away 'cause I can't stand
To see you cryin'.

Sometimes, sometimes I get so lonely
Sometimes, sometimes I get so blue
Sometimes is a long, long time.

Gotta look away
Gotta look away
Gotta look away 'cause I can't stand
To see you cryin'.
Track Name: Laughing Years
You got the bullet and you learned to bite it
You got rejected and you learned to fight it
You've got your mountain and you've got to
Climb it
It's got the river and the cross behind it
I hope you spend your laughing years
Out of the blues.

You've got the rhythm of a thousand drummers
You've got the wisdom of a million summers
We are a team just like relay runners
We've got the fanfare and the crowd
Behind us
I hope you spend your laughing years
Out of the blues.

Sometimes your life gets full of tears
And the water rises just above your ears
I hope you spend your laughing years
Out of the blues.
Track Name: She Said
She said she'd never been out of England.
She said she'd never been abroad,
She said she couldn't see the point.
All that money on a destination
When there ain't no place like home. . .
She said. . .

She said she did't need no holiday prize,
Two weeks in a villa in Rome,
All that money to be continental
When there ain't no place like home. . .
She said. . .
Where her heart belongs,
She can read about the world,
Underground, in her hideaway.

She said she'd never been out of England.
She said the offers she'd had,
Some good, none of them bad,
But a team of wild horses couldn't drag her away,
'Cos there ain't no place like home,
There ain't no place like. . .

She said she'd never been out of England.
She said she'd never been abroad,
She said she couldn't see the point.
All that money to be continental
When there ain't no place like home, she said
There ain't no place like home. .
Where her heart belongs,
She can read about the world,
Underground, in her hideaway.

She said she'd never been out of England.
Track Name: Call Me
I saw you standing there
You knocked me out of my shoes
The look that gave you me said I
couldn't lose.

We spent the night huddled up close
Making love so hot it burned
I felt cold in the morning but you will return
I've been waiting for so long..
Anticipating for so long..
I've been waiting for so long.

"Call me, take the time and call me
Don't try to stall me,
I should've seen it in your smile.
Call me, take one lousy dime and baby
call me,
Quit trying to stonewall me
I would have made it worth your while."
I keep thinking about you, can't get you out of my head,
Been turning down offers I shouldn't refuse,
Do I live in a world of lies, I must admit I fantasise,
I talk to my shadow and wish it was you.
I've been waiting for so long..
Someone must pay at the end of the day but
Babe it ain't going to be me
There ain't enough fools to play by those rules
So it better be me - Call me.
