Heavy metal in your veins Like a magnet to my face  I couldn’t stay away So keep writing your words down  Have fun and just fuck around  Have fun On the lazy days Try to lay low See you later on Try to lay low  You did all that could be done  You're still alive  You're still alive  White wine and cigarettes  Your perfume in my bed It stays it stays for days and days  Forget about what was said  Take a sedative rest your head Stay safe for another day Try to lay low. See you later on Try to lay low. See you later on You did all that could be done You're still alive

Apologise 02:41
Sorry now  No more coming home in the morning light  Drinking till I go blind  You gotta know by now there's no such thing as a perfect guy Baby I apologise 100 times I was wrong and you were right  Your eyes like knives  Anger lines  You'll be wrong some other time  I apologise I will  Apologise I will  Sorry now No more going out every single night  Could be enough just you and I  I know there's no such thing as a perfect life. Baby I apologise  I was wrong and you were right  Your eyes like knives  Anger lines  You'll be wrong some other time  I apologise I will  Apologise I will

You're tired now  You tire me out  You tie my young in knots so much I can't talk to you Honestly, we're not all that bad  Cheer up Jesse don't let it get to you  It's human nature now  Stay with him till he falls asleep and things I don't wanna know  You can climb out his window  And stay with him till he falls asleep, oh I know well I know  You will never have to be alone  Forget about it  Forget about it  Cheer up Jeese don't let it get to you  You turn em on, like you could turn em off I get turned down I get sad too  And honestly  I'm not that bad  Cheer up Jeese don't let it get to you  It's human nature now

Dreams 02:49
I, I could sleep all day  Or forever just the same  I walk around in a haze  Forever and a day I could go running, I could learn to sail  Or stay in again.  I, I could waste away  As the city keeps its pace  Don't get me wrong I'll stay awake for  A rerun of 80s music videos, I'll never want much more and I will just exist for staying in.  I could go running, I could learn to sail  Or stay in again. 
5.
Honey 02:42
I don’t know why but I like it, it seems  That everything was better when everything was shiny and new So keep on moving slowly  Like I know how to do It’s gonna get better, gonna get better and soon It’ll taste like honey Honey, make it taste like honey If it’s alright, yeah I’m hoping to stay Covered up with kisses and painted bright colours for you I’ll cover the obscene, all that’s painful and true It’s gona get better, gonna get better and soon It’ll taste like honey Honey, make it taste like honey Honey, make it taste like honey
6.
Midday Movie 03:40
Woke up to a midday movie And I stayed in bed till two To be honest, it was awful Way too long and boring to Let’s get drunk and go to a dive bar We’ll be happy down where the freaks are You say you’re sorry, I just sorry to Compete with you with what is around here The bigger they are the harder they fall Why are you hanging around, here for? On my way home, I called Jesse Such a fucked up thing to do On my worst days, I am awful Tell me how they’re mean to you The bigger they are the harder they fall Why are you hanging around, here for?
7.
Love Songs 02:32
Slow down, you’ll only have to say it once You should know by now I’m running out of love songs As on the train, in my blood, on and on and to your home as I Was scared of saying something wrong I still see your face, as my memory fades I wonder if you ever got to settle down, another guy another town I see you Calm down, we’ll leave before the morning comes If you want to, another round, we’ll pour ourselves another one Where have you been, are you up to much, how have you been since we lost touch Oh I'm still scared of saying something wrong I Still see your face, as my memory fades, I wonder if you ever got to settle down, another guy another town
8.
Skeleton bones You're still living alone, tell me Why did you say he looks contagious He could be great or medicated  And tell lies to you  Calm you down when he lies down in your room. Yeah I'll be there soon  Skeleton bones  You’re still rattling on, honey Don’t get confused don’t get complacent The other guys all say the same things And tell lies to you  Calm you down when he lies down in your room. yeah I’ll be there soon 
9.
Safe & Sound 03:18
Turn my feet around  Until we’re safe and sound  If I died in your arms every Sunday  Like a silent alarm would you love me  You’d look good anywhere you go  You look good yeah I wanna wear the same clothes  And join your army I could stop it if I wanted but I won't
