Lyrics :

Standing On The Outside

Once upon a time, I had it all
But they say that pride comes before a fall
Now I’m standing on the outside looking in

What’s easily gained is easily lost
Now I’m left to count the cost
And I’m standing on the outside looking in

There’s nothing left, you took it all
You took the prize, I took the fall
Now I’m standing on the outside looking in
I’m standing on the outside looking in
Standing on the outside looking in

Growing Old Disgracefully

I know I can’t talk too good
And maybe I’ve drunk more than I should
My eloquence is gone but I ramble on and on and on

I know I don’t look too great
I’ve lived more years than I can fake
But every line on my face tells a story I cannot recall

I used to think my life was mapped out right in front of me
But my house of cards has tumbled, I’m growing old disgracefully

I know I don’t dress too fine
I’ve got a style uniquely mine
Fashions change but my shirt remains the same

I know you don’t think much of me
You’re not impressed by what you see
But I’m comfortable in my skin, it’s not too thin

I used to think my life was mapped out right in front of me
But my house of cards has tumbled, I’m growing old disgracefully

Maybe it’s time to settle down but I’m having too much fun
I’m way too old to die young…

(solo)

I used to think my life was mapped out right in front of me
But my house of cards has tumbled, I’m growing old disgracefully

All That Matters

I waste my time on trivial games
I live the same day over again
I get so stressed, I need a release
I can’t see what’s in front of me

‘Cos all that matters is you
All that matters is you

Endless regrets, what might have beens
Come back to haunt me in my dreams
I should’ve gone with you but I was trying to be so strong
Only now I see the path I chose was wrong

‘Cos all that matters is you
All that matters is you

(Break)

All that matters is you…

Me Who Let You Down

Don’t know why I came today
You won’t listen to a word I say
Something’s wrong you’re in a bad way
I tell you this but you turn away

It wasn’t me who let you down,
It wasn’t me who let you down

I can’t hold on too long,
My self-confidence just ain’t that strong
You’re friends tell me to persist
But I could twist your arm til it broke your wrist

It wasn’t me who let you down,
It wasn’t me who let you down

But I can’t make you do, anything you don’t want to
But I can’t get you off my mind
I could make you see, exactly what you mean to me
If you’d give me half a chance

Someone hurt you in the past,
The pain will stay til you let it pass
Don’t take it out on me
It’s not fair…

It wasn’t me who let you down,
It wasn’t me who let you down

But I can’t make you do, anything you don’t want to
But I can’t get you off my mind
I could make you see, exactly what you mean to me
If you’d give me half a chance

It wasn’t me who let you down,
It wasn’t me who let you down,
It wasn’t me who let you down,
It wasn’t me who let you down

The Oldest Man In The Bar

So I go back to this bar and I’m pretty sure I haven’t been here for 20 years,
And I’m pretty sure I was barred then, but they serve me straight away, no bother.
And I’m sitting with a pint full of thoughts and I look up and see people dancing,
And they’re drinking and laughing, and suddenly it dawns on me…

I’m the oldest man in the bar,
When did that happen?

Every morning I look in the mirror and it’s the same face staring back,
But I’m not young and crazy any more

I’m the oldest man in the bar,
When did that happen?

(Break)

And part of me misses the joy, and part of me misses the pain
The confusion of never knowing whether she likes me or not
And pretending not to care anyway.
Remember when we realised that someone in the bar could be
The daughter of someone we were at school with?
Well now it could be mine

I’m the oldest man in the bar,
When did that happen?

I finish my pint but my thoughts follow me home…

I’m the oldest man in the bar,
When the fuck did that happen?

Broken

Am I In Your Dreams

Am I still the one
Who turns you on
Or am I just a habit now?

It’s been so long,
Are we going wrong?
We never find the time to talk somehow.

Do you still feel
My love is real?
The world is spinning much too fast.

You’ll always be
The one for me
Can we make it last?

Do you still dream of me?
Am I in your dreams?
You know I dream of you.

Am I on your mind?
One of a kind?
Or is this just one-way?

Are the tables turned?
Is it me who’s spurned?
I don’t know what to say…

Do you still dream of me?
Am I in your dreams?
You know I dream of you.

I close my eyes, I see your face
And it takes me to a better place
Please say you feel it too

Are we all burned out?
Are you filled with doubt?
Please say it isn’t so.
Would you tell me if
There’s been a rift
Or would I be the last to know?

Do you still dream of me?
Am I in your dreams?
You know I dream of you.

Go Go Go

It’s well past noon but it’s still too soon
To even think of getting out of bed
Looking for release, can’t get no peace
From the pounding that’s in your head

The empty bottles clank, you regret you drank but you did
Your head is saying no but your heart is saying go go go…

Halfway through a bender, turning up the Fender
Starting to feel pretty good
No word of a lie, you feel you could fly
And you know that you would if you could

The empty bottles clank, you regret you drank but you did
Your head is saying no but your heart is saying go go go…

(solo)

The empty bottles clank, you regret you drank but you did
Your head is saying no but your heart is saying go go go…

Like a rollercoaster, sitting on the sofa,
Everything in a whirl
Go to sleep to forget, all the things you regret,
Tomorrow you’ll do it again

Control

How many times have I come close to,
Telling you how I feel?
The world is turning too fast around me,
It doesn’t seem to be real

How many times have I come close to,
Calling it quits
Hold my hands up, let go of the wheel
Watch it all fall to bits

I’ve lost control, I’ve lost control
I need to dig myself out of this hole

How many times have I come close to
Just letting go
Let the waters sweep me away
Go with the flow

How many times have I come close to
Walking away
I tried my best, I came up short
There’s nothing left to say

I’ve lost control, I’ve lost control
I need to dig myself out of this hole

My Time Is Gonna Come
