WHEN YOUR HEART BREAKS (INTO MANY LITTLE PIECES) When your heart breaks into many little pieces, oh you can hear those pieces jingling as you’re walking, as you’re walking back from her world to your own. When you’ve only a few pennies in your pocket, you can hear those pennies jangling as you’re walking, as you’re walking back from her place to your own. Oh you had a lot of love to give her, oh you had a lot of love to share, now you’ve got a lot of time to forgive her, now you’ve got a lot of time to spare. When your heart breaks into many little pieces, oh you can hear those pieces jingling as you’re walking, as you’re walking back from her world to your own. Oh you had a lot of love to give her, oh you had a lot of love to share, now you’ve got a lot of time to forgive her, now you’ve got a lot of time to spare. When your heart breaks into many little pieces.

IN YOUR DREAMS Don’t kid yourself, don’t kid yourself that you’re dreaming, your dreams came once now they’re leaving, your dreams came once now they’re leaving home. You long for the sleep, you long for the sleep of your childhood where dreams came each night some bad, some good, dreams came each night, some bad and some good. 'Cause you know life will hurt you and in your dreams it’s easier. Don’t kid yourself, don’t kid yourself that you’re dreaming, your dreams came once now they’re leaving, your dreams came once now they’re leaving you. You long for the sleep, you long for the sleep of your childhood where dreams came each night, some bad, some good, dreams came each night, some bad and some good. 'Cause you know life will hurt you and in your dreams it’s easier. Yeah you know life will hurt you and in your dreams it’s easier. Oh it’s easier, it’s easier.

SLIPPED AWAY You couldn’t paint the picture you couldn’t find the words. You couldn’t make it up to her oh you could only make things worse. So you slipped away, you took a holiday. You slipped away, you took a holiday. You couldn’t catch up with her she was too fast for you. You couldn’t find the answer, oh there was sweet nothing you could do. So you slipped away, you took a holiday. You slipped away, you took a holiday. Yeah you slipped away, you took a holiday. You slipped away, you took a holiday. Oh what a time to go, knee deep in snow. Oh wherever the wind blows, you can go. You couldn’t draw the picture you couldn’t find the words. You couldn’t make it up to her oh you could only make things worse. So you slipped away, you took a holiday. You slipped away, you took a holiday. You slipped away, you took a holiday. Yeah you slipped away, you took a holiday, you took a holiday.

SHE'LL BE HOME SOON She'll be home soon the day gets darker around five. She'll be home soon it's only a short bicycle ride. She'll be home soon the dinner's on and the smells fill the room. And no dizzy heights can spoil her appetite tonight or any other night. She'll be home soon melting snowflakes in her hair. She'll be home soon her perfume will fill the air. She'll be home soon oh with the moon or maybe half a moon. But that'll be just fine for she always shines bright against the winter night. Yeah that'll suit me fine because she always shines high in the night sky. She'll be home soon.

SPENT TOO LONG WALKING WITH NO HEART TO FOLLOW Oh don't remind time that it's not on your side, for it can 't be kind to you anymore. You spent too long walking with no heart to follow looking out for that bow and arrow. You took the long road, you took the wrong road. All around the houses and across the fields. Too long walking with no heart to follow, looking out for that bow and arrow. And when love hit you, you were more than ready, so hopelessly spoken for so calm and so steady. So hopelessly spoken for so calm and so ready. So don't remind time that it's not on your side, for it won't be kind to you anymore. You were too long walking with no heart to follow, looking out for that bow and arrow. And when love hit you, you were more than ready, so hopelessly spoken for so calm and so steady. So hopelessly spoken for so calm and so ready. And when love hit you, you were more than ready, so hopelessly spoken for, so calm and so steady. So hopelessly spoken for, so calm and so ready.

THIS GOODBYE KISS So now our night is nearly over and the rain spits down outside. This goodbye kiss could last an hour, this goodbye kiss could last all night. Oh I never thought for a moment that I would never want to go back home (home). And now we’re walking in a stupor as we take turns pushing your bike. This goodbye kiss could last a minute, this goodbye kiss could last all night. Oh I never thought for a moment that I would never want to go back home (home). So now we’re climbing up your staircase and we’re beaming in the light. This goodbye kiss could last a second, this goodbye kiss could last all night. Oh I never thought for a moment that I would never want to go back home (home), home (home). Would never want to go back home.

LOOK HOW TIME FLIES Morning came and morning went and suddenly half the day was spent, oh what can you do now?Yeah morning came and morning went, the sun shone and daydreams were dreamt, oh what can you say now? So long, so long, look how time flies when it’s having fun. So long, so long, look how time flies when it’s having fun. Oh Sunday came and Sunday went and suddenly another week was spent, oh what can you do now? Yeah Sunday came and Sunday went, the clock ticked and daydreams were dreamt, oh what can you say now? So long, so long, look how time flies when it’s having fun. So long, so long, look how time flies when it’s having fun. So long, so long, look how time flies when it’s having fun. So long, so long, look how time flies when it’s having fun. Sunday came and Sunday went, Sunday came and Sunday went, Sunday came and Sunday went, Sunday came and Sunday went.

THOSE MEMORIES I got carried far away on those memories. And I spent too many days, lost in those memories. 'Oh don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. ‘No don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. I was miles and miles away in those memories. And I got drunk in a golden haze of memories. 'Oh don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. ‘No don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. Oh they still burn so bright all those memories of cold London nights. All those memories, of long summer days, on the Isle of Wight. I got carried far away on those memories. And I spent too many days in those memories. 'Oh don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. ‘No don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. ‘Don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories. ‘No don’t forget us ‘cause we’ll sail away’ say those memories.

CHANGE WITH THE SEASON Yes I made mistakes but I still placed that smile upon your face, just like the way that spring came and lightened everything. And yes it got me down but I still ran all the way across town to try to knock your worries down, to try to knock your worries down. And if everything will change with the season then you don’t need to give me a reason. Yes it’s hard to do but I plan to be always here for you, through your summer thrills and your winter chills. And when things get you down I will run all the way across town, just to knock your worries down, just to knock your worries down. And if everything does change with the season then you don’t need to give me a reason. Because if everything does change with the season, then I don’t need to hear a good reason.

UP STICKS AND GO Oh I don't know how cold this wind can blow, but I do know she'll be waiting. I follow her footprints through the snow, to where she will be waiting. And I say goodbye to everything, to everything. I wave goodbye to everything, to everything. One day soon we'll pack our things and go to where new winds are blowing. 'Cause if we stay here we will never know, how kind those winds are blowing. And we say goodbye to everything, to everything. We wave goodbye to everything, to everything, we know. Oh I'm not sure I can find my way home but I do know she'll be waiting. So I follow her footprints through the snow, to where she will be waiting. And I say goodbye to everything, to everything. I wave goodbye to everything, to everything. I say goodbye to everything, to everything. I wave goodbye to everything,
to everything I know.

HAVEN'T YOU GOT ANYWHERE LEFT YOU CAN RUN TO? Go tired hopes and find a slope that you can run down. And go tired dreams and find the ways and the means. Oh haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Run to, run to, run to. Oh haven’t you got anywhere left, that you can run to? Go tired thoughts and plot a course that you can sail to. And go tired dreams and find your way to the sea. Oh haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Run to, run to, run to. Oh haven’t you got anywhere left, that you can run to? Oh haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Haven’t you got anywhere left, you can run to? Run to, run to, run to. Oh haven’t you got anywhere left, that you can run to?

WE DIDN'T MOVE A MUSCLE Oh sitting in your room was the highlight of my life. Yeah sitting in your room was the highlight of my life. And I know it didn't amount to much and I know it wasn't right but sitting in your room oh that was the highlight of my life. Oh sitting next to you there was only one thing on my mind. Yeah sitting next to you there was only one thing on my mind. And I know we didn't make it and I know it didn't feel right but sitting next to you oh there was only one thing on my mind. And we didn't talk for hours, no, we didn't make a sound. No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around. And we couldn't lift a conversation, up off of the ground. No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around. No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around. Oh sitting there with you, my heart was jumping inside. Yeah sitting there with you, my heart was jumping inside. And I didn't know much about you but I sure knew what I liked and sitting there with you, oh my heart was jumping inside. And we didn't talk for hours, no, we didn't make a sound. No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around. And we couldn't lift a conversation up off of the ground. No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around. No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around.

HEADING HOME We’re heading home with sand in our shoes, with sunburnt cheeks and dusty jeans. We keep our sleepy eyes on the white lines on the road, through the black of the summer night driving home. We’re heading home with grass in our hair, with aching limbs and healthy hearts. We keep our sleepy eyes out for animals on the road, through the black of the summer night driving home. We’re heading home with sand in our shoes, with sunburnt cheeks and dusty jeans. We keep our sleepy eyes on the white lines on the road, through the black of the summer night driving home. We’re heading home with grass in our hair, with aching limbs and healthy hearts. We keep our sleepy eyes out for animals on the road, through the black of the summer night driving home.
