Track Name: Life & Limb
Life & Limb

There's a feeling that I get from you
Nothing you say you're thinking quite rings true
Who is kidding who?
You keep saying that you're still in love
But your eyes are saying darker stuff
Is your loyalty enough?

If you wouldn't give your life & limb
Please do not make a wife of him
Better make a fool of him and begin again
If you can't quite love the rest of him
Best not take all the best of him
Better make a fool of him and start again
And start again, and start again

Now I'm wondering what friends are for
Starts so simple but it ends up more
More than I can say
There is nothing that I wouldn't give
To be something in the life you live
If onlys become what ifs

If you wouldn't give your life & limb
Please do not make a wife of him
Better make a fool of him and begin again
If you can't quite love the rest of him
Best not take all the best of him
Better make a fool of him and start again
And start again, and start again

Let me love you life & limb
Let me love you life & limb
Let me love you life & limb
Let me love you life & limb

f you wouldn't give your life & limb
Please do not make a wife of him
Better make a fool of him and begin again
If you can't quite love the rest of him
And if it's just for the sake of it
Better you make a break of it
It's never too late for it though it's late enough

So let me love you (start again)
So let me love you (start again)
So let me love you (start again)
So let me love you (start again)
Track Name: That Boy
That Boy

Heaven help that boy
He's got so much joy
And it's dangerous
Dangerous to behold
Heaven help that girl
She thinks he's her whole world
And it's so, so predictable

You can borrow my shirt but that ain't what hurts me the most
Oh, what hurts is the fact that one day you'll look back on all of this
With hope in your eyes and tenderness in your heart

And there was a room at the top of the house
And I followed you there, stair by stair
I can't remember your name now
But I remember the sound of your face as it hit the floor
Hit the floor

You can borrow my shirt but that ain't what hurts me the most
Oh, what hurts is the fact that one day you'll look back on all of this
With hope in your eyes and tenderness in your heart

You can borrow my shirt but that ain't what hurts me the most
Oh, what hurts is the fact that one day you'll look back on all of this
With hope in your eyes and tenderness in your heart
Track Name: Don't Come To My Party
Don't Come To My Party

I saved my breath
For boys like you
And this is what
You put me through
And this is what you make me do

So don't come to my party
Boy, you're not invited
There is woe enough
Without you in the world
So don't come to my party
Boy, you're not invited
There is woe enough
Without you in the world

Scratch the cat that got the cream
These are tacky hours for young love's dream
And the sharp folk will know what I mean

So don't come to my party
Boy, you're not invited
There is woe enough
Without you in the world
So don't come to my party
Boy, you're not invited
There is woe enough
Without you in the world

So don't, don't, come to my, my party
Boy don't, don't, come to my, my party
To my party

I saved my best for boys like you
And this is what you put me through

So don't come to my party
Boy, you're not invited
There is woe enough
Without you in the world
So don't come to my party
Boy, you're not invited
There is woe enough
Without you in the world
Track Name: Conflict of Interest
Conflict of Interest

I can see that you're well brought up
Sure to know how to handle a conflict of interest
Can you tell that I'm all mixed up?
Bound to go where you lead me
And just hope for the best

Even if I suspect there's something in it for you
Why would I ever doubt that what you say must be true?

If I thought you were up for kicks
Would I know how to handle a conflict of interest?
To tell the truth I'd be knocked for six
Put to bed with the scandal a lifetime of unrest

Though it's just what you want and just the way that you do
Why would I ever doubt that what you say must be true

Clear as day, close as skin
Who is giving into who?
Clear as day, close as skin
Who is giving into who?
Into who?

I can see that you're well brought up
Sure to know how to handle a conflict of interest

Safe to say I'll be heartless by the time that we're through
Still, it's just what you want and just the way that you do
Sad to say that I'm helpless but it's hopefully true
Otherwise I'll be getting off no better than you

I can see that you're (a conflict of interest)
Sure to know how to (a conflict of interest)
