Track Name: Need Someone
Her face looking up and gazing into
Your face, summer dress and half a grin and
Flushed skin, resting on your chest and framed in
Ringlets, arms around your shoulders on the
Platform, alone together in a press of
Bodies, your two are the only two that
Matter, breathing in the scent of
Adoration and perspiration.

Glowing in
The sunshine
I remember

We all need someone
We all need that sun
We all need someone
To look at us like that.

You’re her religion, you’re the idol, you’re the
Jesus to her Mary Magdalene if
Mary really had to jump the Saviour’s
Bones. OK, bad analogy, but really
That look could make a nearly dead man do a
Tango, bang a drum for youth and all its
Glory, remember all his hoary pulling
Stories, forget the poor years

God, I feel
So old yet
I remember

We all need someone
We all need that sun
We all need someone
To look at us like that.
Track Name: Centre Of The World
The house is full of people I don't know
They followed us back here after the show
And all I want is for them to go,
I look at you and say I'm sorry
You just smile and say that's ok
You're having a good time anyway
You take my arm and the music plays
Suddenly I'm standing

Close to you
Somewhere sparkling and new
In the centre of the world
Next to you
Somewhere shimmering and blue
In the centre of the world

Against them we'll be blood brothers
Like classical history's tragic lovers
I will conquer all the others
Shelter you and make them sorry
But you just smile and say I'm wrong
We don't have to take anyone on
Take my arm and sing this song
Suddenly I'm standing

Close to you
Somewhere sparkling and new
In the centre of the world
Next to you
Somewhere shimmering and blue
In the centre of the world

This vantage point
This blessed, reflected
In the centre of the world

Close to you
Somewhere sparkling and new
In the centre of the world
Next to you
Somewhere shimmering and blue
In the centre of the world
Track Name: Aimee
Aimee’s all hoodies and trainers
Aimee is smaller than me
Aimee is my favourite dancer
Aimee’s my blessed relief
Aimee says I shouldn’t worry
Aimee says we will be fine
But I cannot breathe without Aimee
Aimee’s my oxygen line

Once I saw her, heard her speak
There was no turning back, cos I’d be incomplete
She’s the funniest person I’ve ever met
And she shines so bright that I am just a silhouette

Glory be to me and Aimee

Aimee doesn’t see her own wisdom
Aimee’s much smarter than me
Aimee let me out of prison
She showed me how to find my own key
Aimee says she needs to consider.
Aimee says we can’t cause a fight.
Aimee says that we mustn’t hurry
And naturally, Aimee is right

But once I saw her, it was done
I couldn’t ever see myself with anyone
She’s fixed up my little head
And now I’m going to follow her around until I’m dead.

Glory be to me and Aimee

Once I saw her, heard her speak
There was no turning back, cos I’d be incomplete
She’s fixed up my little head
And now I’m going to follow her around until I’m dead.

Glory be to me and Aimee
Track Name: Skin In It
Fingers gripping the dark veneer and
All the things you did to get you here and
All the people that you clambered over
All the bodyguards and all the chauffeurs
You're in the bottom of a laundry basket
Dirty sheets and dirty blankets
You sleep away, a sudden hazy sleeping
In a cleaning cupboard for safekeeping

Is it real now?
When you come to
You might feel a
Bit hard done to, but

Now you got some skin,
Now you got some skin
Now you got some
Now you got some skin in the game

We didn't want to hurt you
We only meant to disconcert you
We got out by the skin of our canines
In the witching hour of early daytime.
All the people that you clambered over
All the bodyguards and all the chauffeurs
They’re all praying for your safe return while
My friend here gets the secateurs

It’s all got a
Little darker
Pass the wipes and
Call my lawyer

Cos now you got some skin,
Now you got some skin
Now you got some
Now you got some skin in the game

This did not work
Out the way we
Planned it, but I’ve
Got to hand it to you, man:

Now you got some skin,
Now you got some skin
Now you got some
Now you got some skin in the game
