Track Name: The Girl Who Has Everything
She's so perfect
There's gotta be a downside to being so nice
She, she hits a nerve
She cuts it right up
I aint go no love for myself

I aint got her money
I aint got her body
I aint got a man to myself
I aint got a soul so clean
Sometimes I can be so mean
And I don't smile at everything I see

She, she's got it all
I am so small for being so bitter
She, she sure hits a sore spot
When I look to what I've got
I can't help but feel jealous

I aint got her money...

She's so perfect
I wish I could hate her
But she's so kind
She, she's the girl who has everything
Who makes you feel like you've got nothing
But that's not true...

Yeah I've got my brains
I might have my pains
But I can write and I can dream
I aint got a soul so clean
Sometimes I can be so mean
and I don't smile at everything I see

I aint got her money
I aint got her body
I aint got a man to myself
I aint got a soul so clean
But I sing with sincerity
And I can smile at most things I see
Yes I can smile at most things I see...
Track Name: I Blinked Twice
We were sat in the rain
Waiting for it go away
Had the tip of my tongue point to the sky
And I blinked twice...

I learnt my lesson a long time ago
Those sort of things just don't mean that much to some
You can jump in and you can separate
But I can't do it, thats not me
Guess I ought to forget

Once we started we wouldn't stop
With each crack of the bottle top
With No thought to the consequence
Hell once we had jumped, we were over that fence

I learnt my lesson a long time ago...

Guess I ought to forget...
One measly night

I learnt my lesson a long time ago...
One measly night.

We were sat in the rain...
Track Name: Three Acres
if i could own 3 acres and a half a dozen ducks
then i could live on my own, without dependence on luck
no i wouldn't be wealthy
oh but how i would be happy
you see when money mixes with art, it falls apart, it falls apart

we're all under pressure
but tell me what's the measure?
of things and diamond rings
of being the best, racing against the rest

if i could have three acres, three acres one cow and liberty
then i could live with certainty, no pain for success or anxiety
so you can stuff your job
there's so much more that i am looking for
you see when time takes it all, the meaning will fall, the meaning will fall

we're all under pressure...

i'm gonna get myself a greenhouse
i'm gonna arrange myself an orchard
and I would live free
in clean air and green
I don't need to climb the ladder so no need to fear the fall
I don't need your technology and the things I can't afford
I don't your banks or your excess clothes
just one cow, three acres and half a dozen ducks
just one cow, three acres and half a dozen ducks

we're all under pressure...
Track Name: I Know The Story
I don't wanna want you like I did the others
I don't wanna resent you like I do already just a little

Tonight I'm saying goodbye
And I'm not going home with you this time
As much as it fills me with regret
I know the beginning, the middle and the end
Cos I'll always be wanting more
And tonight there's no point in closing the door
On what I truly need, what I truly want
On everything that I've been waiting for

I don't wanna want you like I did the others
I don't wanna resent you like I do already just a little
Well it would be swell if it turned out well
But I know the story, the story
I don't wanna bruise, and I don't wanna be used
And I don't wanna get hurt for the one hundreth time

Tonight I am walking away
I've got my head held high and I am fine
Tonight I'm putting my heart first
Because later I'd only feel worse

I don't wanna...
