Track Name: Sweet Chin Music
lyrics by Alex Gates
Track Name: Don't Brake When You See Me
And I pray all day, you won't stop when you see me
You'll turn your pretty head and just walk by
I know one day when I'm wiser I'll look back on this with laughter
But today it just makes me want to die.

Oh, and it's not what I wanted
But it's what I need
Do what's right
Don't stop when you see me...

And I pray all day, you won't brake when you see me
You'll slam your peddle right down to the floor
When you finally get your license do me one last act of kindness
In the car that your father paid for.

I fell so hard when I fell from your arms
I felt the cold hard ground beneath me
Will you make it official?
Don't stop when you see me...

I keep myself sane in the knowledge
Everyone who follows me is worse
The sequel was fun, babe
But it never tops the first...

And I pray all day, you won't stop when you see me
Darling I'm a nightmare dressed as
A really handsome nightmare.
Track Name: Tear Me Apart
It's just not been my day, I guess the odds aren't in my favour
Slumped up against my old record player
I know it's coming now, and that just makes it harder...

Put your hand on my chest, tear me apart
We were both doomed, right from the start.
Put your hand on my chest, tear me apart
We were all doomed, right from the start.

Walking by the airfield, the planes took off around us
And that's just how we liked it, because that's just how we knew it
And now I watch you walk away and I feel strange
Who would have thought this would change?

Put your hand on my heart, tear me apart
We were both doomed, right from the start.
Put your hand on my chest, tear me apart
We were all doomed, right from the start.
Track Name: All the People Who Aren't Me
Might have a problem with my attitude
As I hit the floor again
Got up to eat only when I had to
Then I hit the floor again.

This place is filled with an angst that should have died out years ago
They say it's darkest just before dawn
And holding onto my phone I hold out for my little ray of sunshine
But God knows, she's taking so long.

A few words on the screen could save my life
But it seems these days you've only got time
For all the people who aren't me
All the people who aren't me.

And the best revenge is living well
There's no chance; I'll see you in hell.

And if all that's not enough
I'm going to give all my love
To one of the people who aren't you
One of the people who aren't you.
Track Name: Call Me If You Want it Better, Baby
We both work at the supermarket
We're both working 1 til 9
She only wants to study medical science
I only want to make her mine.

Her boyfriend manages the liquor section
He has opinions on fine wines
I sometimes think that he needs to be beat down
I sometimes think about it all the time.

Check me out
Check me out...

Call me if you want it better, baby, I can take you away from this
I've been sorting out all my priorities lately and girl, you're at the top of my list
I can't promise we'll be perfect together but I promise we'll be perfect together
Call me if you want it be better, baby, and I'll be yours for a long time.

She flicks her hair and she rolls her eyes
And I have to try not to fall in love this time
She flicks her hair and my knees go weak
And I fall in love for the fifth time this week.

Check me out
Check me out...

Call me if you want it better, baby...

He buys books but he never reads them
He wears glasses but he doesn't need them
He writes novels but nobody's seen them
He's kissing her and I don't believe it.

Call me if you want it better, baby...
Track Name: Honest, Earnest Christmas Carol
So here's to the end of another year
And I still can't handle beer
There's just something about the taste
That makes me screw up my face.

And I always hated Christmas with you
There was never anything to do
And you're parents always drank too much
And your sister always made a fuss.,

Like the times she spilled her drink on me
Yeah, she really took it out on me
And I only want to be at home
But I don't want to be alone.

So I give to you another honest, earnest Christmas carol
A gift from me to you just to get you through the year.
So I give to you another honest, earnest Christmas carol
A gift from me to you just to get you through the year.

And then I met another girl
Who traveled around the world
And her hair was full of golden curls
And her leaving just made me seasick.

And all I want to be is alone
But she's never at my home
Because she's gone to see the sights
Yeah I see her name in lights...

So I'll give to her, another honest earnest resolution
On New Years Eve, I'll try to make her believe
That I can change, that I can be another, better person
Than the guy I was before, she went and got on that plane.
