1. FOR YOUR OWN GOOD (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------------
For your own good 
Call me tonight 
Don't you think you should 
Call me tonight? 
Life isn't easy 
So why don't you stay 
With the lover you need 
And not the devil you pay? 
For your own good 
Call me tonight 

For your own good 
Call me tonight 
Don't you think I could 
Make a difference tonight 
When you need a lover 
And it's so cold outside 
I could help you recover 
From the pain you hide 
Life isn't easy 
So why don't you stay 
With the lover you need 
And not the devil you pay? 
For your own good 
Call me tonight 

Come on, call me 

Call me tonight 
I'll make you feel good 
Come on, call me 
Come on, call me 
Call me tonight 
I'll make you feel good 
Want your body (call me tonight it will be alright) 
Want your body 

For your own good 
Call me tonight 

2. CLOSER TO HEAVEN (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------------
Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 
Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 

Give me hope 
Give me all your love 
Tell me now 
You're coming home tonight 
Have some faith 
In the love we share 
Is it fate? 
Does darkness end in light? 

Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 
Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 

Where'd you go? 
Did you lose your way? 
Tell me now 
You're coming back to stay 
In my hopes 
Paradise is real 
Horoscopes 
Can't forecast how we'll feel 

Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 
Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 

Give me hope 
Give me hope 

Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 
Never been closer to heaven 
Never been further away 

Give me hope 
Give me hope 
  


3. I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT BUT I CAN'T GIVE IT ANY MORE (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------------------------------------------------
Did you get what you want? 
Do you know what it is? 
Do you care? 
Is he better than me? 
Was it your place or his? 
Who was there? 
Did you think it was wrong? 
Do you find that it's worse than it was? 
Has it gone on too long? 
Do you mind that it hurts me? 
Because 
You're breaking my heart 

I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more 
I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more 
You're breaking my heart 

Was it cracking the code? 
Or just filling in time? 
Was that all? 
So then why'd you go back 
To the scene of the crime? 
Did he call? 
Shall I take further blame 
Or another assault of how 
It was? 
Then we'll get to the fact 
That it's always my fault just 
Because 
You're breaking my heart 

I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more 
I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more 
You're breaking my heart 
I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more 
I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more 
You're breaking my heart 

Don't know what you want 
Don't know what you want 
  
4. HAPPINESS IS AN OPTION (Tennant/Lowe/Clinton)
-------------------------
It is not easy 
It is not easy 

Looking from a window 
At the back of a house 
At the edge of a town 
It's grey 
Like the day 
When I lost it 
Clouds overhead 
I talked to a flower 
That was almost dead 
My body was a prison 
Why did I do it? 
Someone told me not to 
But I still went through it 

It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 

Needed somewhere to clear my head 
Find some strenghth 
A warmer bed 
Maximum love in a 
Minimal world 
I'd never achieved it 
But the I believed it 
So when I lost it - how? 
I'm not sure now - 
It was a strange feeling 
Like a law repealing itself 

It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 
It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 

I can wake up in the morning 
And not believe what I see 
Look in the mirror 
And think if that's really me 
I don't think I suit my face 
It's not a catastrophe 
it's more a philosophy 
Like the Russians 
Wondering why 
We're born under a blue sky 
But die in a dark forest 

It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 
It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 

This is neither old nor new 
It is always, forever 
Somewhere between sense 
And ambition 
Pleasure and decision 
We have to make a choice 
What do we want? 
Everyone singing 
"War, what is it good for?" 
While planning the next one 

I don't need to win 
You don't have to loose 
We can choose 
Happiness is an option 

It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 

It is not easy 
The war within us 
But it gets easier 
The more we learn 
I don't need to win 
You don't have to lose 
We can choose 
Happiness is an option 

It is not easy 
But don't give up now 
It is not easy 
Happiness is an option 
I don't have to win 
You don't have to lose 
We can choose 
Happiness is an option 
  


5. YOU ONLY TELL ME YOU LOVE ME WHEN YOU DRUNK (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------------------------------------
What a performance tonight 
Should I react or turn off the light? 
Looks like you're picking a fight 
In a blurring of wrong and right 
But how does your mood changes 
You're a devil, now an angel 
Suddenly subtle and solemn 
And silent as a monk 
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk 

It's better than nothing, I suppose 
Some doors have opened, others closed 
But I couldn't see you exposed 
To the horrors behind some of those 
Somebody said: listen 
Don't you know what you're missing? 
You should be kissing him 
Instead of dissing him like a punk 
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk 
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk 

All of my friends keep asking me 
Why, oh, why 
Don't you say goodbye? 
If you don't even try 
You'll be sunk 
'Cause you only tell me you love me when you're drunk 

What's the meaning 
When you speak with so much feeling 
Is it over when you're sober? 
Is it junk? 
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk 
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk 

6. VAMPIRES (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------
Brother, it don't matter 
Sister, don't worry 
Say what you like 
I'll do what you want me to do 
You're a vampire 
I'm a vampire too 

Sun in the kitchen 
Boy, you're still sleeping 
When you get hungry 
I'll do what you want me to do 
You're a vampire 
I'm a vampire too 

Night in the city 
New Orleans pretty 
Do what you want 
And then can I do it to you? 
You're a vampire 
I'm a vampire too 
You're a vampire 
I'm a vampire too 

It's a reflex 
Just a reflex 
like fear or sex 

Brother, it don't matter 
Sister, don't worry 
Say what you like 
I'll do what you want me to do 
You're a vampire 
I'm a vampire too 
You're a vampire 
I'm a vampire too 

Brother, it don't matter 
Sister, don't worry 
Brother, it don't matter 
Sister, don't worry 
  

7. RADIOPHONIC (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------
In the air 
In the air 

The night was long 
Now the crowd has gone 
There's sunlight on my bed 
Feels like a radiophonic workshop's 
Beaming straight into my head 
It could make you weep 
I can't get to sleep 
There's ringing in my ears 
Like a radiophonic workshop 
Orchestrating all my stupid fears 

Radiophonic 
I think I'm in love 
Radiophonic 
I think I'm in love 

My skin is itching 
I'm totally twitching 
With the pounding in my head 
Like a dud sub-sonic beat-box 
Booming bass under the bed 
My hands are shaking 
My mind is aching 
With a feeling deep inside 
That you've been staring 
Sending signals 
Every time our paths collide 
Radiophonic 
I think I'm in love 
Radiophonic 
I think I'm in love 

Think I'm in love 

Radiophonic 
I think I'm in love 
Radiophonic 
I think I'm in love 

In the air 
In the air 
  


8. THE ONLY ONE (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------
The only one 

I think of you 
And wonder who 
You are and what's you're line 
I wonder if 
There's someone else 
Or if it's true that I'm 
The only one 
In your life 
I only worry 
For your own sake 
I don't know much about 
The deals you make 
There's so much you hide from me 
The mystery: 
Am I the only one? 
The only one 

(The only one 
The only one 
The only one) 

I don't know you 
You don't know me 
I wonder what we share 
It's just that now 
And then you smile 
And suddenly I know you care 
And I'm the ony one for a while 
Though you've many reasons 
To tell me a lie 
I can't help believing 
That I should be 
For you and you for me 
The only one 

(The only one 
Only one) 

As enigmatic 
As you can be 
I'm not suspicious naturally 
There's so much you hide from me 
The mystery: 
Am I the only one in your life? 

Though you've many reasons 
To tell me a lie 
I can't help believing 
That I should be 
For you and you for me 
The only one 
  


9. BOY STRANGE (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------
See Boy Strange on the horizon of love 
He's calling to you 
What do you say? 

See Boy Strange as an example of youth 
So close to the truth 
But still far away 

An he's such a strange boy 
Will he make a good exchange 
For the one before a closed door 
That you left behind? 

When you realise that this boy is strange 
It's too late to change 
Your point of view 

He's often there when the sun meets the sky 
With a perfect alibi 
Unlike you 

And he's such a strange boy 
D'you think he'll make a good exchange 
For the one before a closed door 
That you left behind? 

A talk of common sense is a complete waste of time 
His looks is a crime 
Bound to commit 

In the eyes of the world he's a borderline fool 
Both naive and cruel 
Why would you inflict 
Him on you? 

And he's such a strange boy 
D'you think he'll make a good exchange 
For the one before a closed door 
That you left behind? 
  


10. IN DENIAL (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------
Father: 
In denial, no 
My life's a trial 
I'm not denying 
That every little bit hurts 
It's a problem 
That I'm not solving 
Don't mind admitting 
I feel like quitting this job 
For a while, getting away 
Before it gets any worse today 

Daughter: 
You're in denial 
And that is final 
You're not admitting 
You should be quitting 
All these Queens and fairies 
And muscle Mary's 
The rough trade boyfriend 
Who in his pathetic own way 
Denies he's gay 
Why can't he see 
This is a fantasy world 

Father: 
I think I'm going mad 
How'd you know if you're going mad? 

Daughter: 
Look at me I'm lonely 

Father:
Look at me I'm sad 
I'm not denying 
I could be trying 
A little harder 
To deal with some of this stuff 

Daughter: 
Know what I'm thinking? 
Less drugs and drinking 
No cigarettes, and you'll feel 
A little less rough 

Father: 
Is that enough? 
My life is absurd 
I'm living it upside down 
Like a vampire working at night, sleeping all day 
A dad with a girl who knows he's gay 

Both: 
Can you love me anyway? 

11. NEW YORK CITY BOY (Tennant/Lowe/Morales)
---------------------
New York City boy 
You’ll never have a bored day 
'Cause you're a New York City boy 
Where Seventh Avenue meets Broadway 

When you're a boy 
Some days are tough 
Lying on your bed 
Playing punk rock and stuff 
Home is a boot camp 
You gotta escape 
Wanna go and wander 
In the ticker tape 
You feel the deal is real 
You're a New York City boy 
So young, so run 
Into New York City 

New York City boy 
You’ll never have a bored day 
'Cause you're a New York City boy

The street is amazing 
The hoochies unreal 
Check out all the hardware 
At the latest deal 
Hear a song 
That’s the bomb! 
If you don’t get that mix 
It’s gone eighty-six 
You feel the deal is real 
You're in New York City 

New York City boy 
You’ll never have a bored day 
'Cause you're a New York City boy 
Where Seventh Avenue meets Broadway 

New York City boy

Where Seventh Avenue meets Broadway 

Then as the evening falls 
You can return it’s calls 

You feel the deal is real

So young, so run 
Into New York City

Where Seventh Avenue meets Broadway 

New York City boy

(You’ll never have a bored day, New York City) 
'Cause your a New York City boy 
Where Seventh Avenue meets Broadway 

12. FOOTSTEPS (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------
Footsteps in the dark 
Only love will break your heart 
Footsteps, footsteps 

Whenever trouble comes around 
Or lonely nights lead underground 
And far in the dark 
Abandoned cars suddenly start up an anxious sound 
As long as I hear you footsteps 
In the dark 
That's all I need 

Footsteps in the dark 
Only love will break your heart 
Footsteps, footsteps 

When loneliness induces fear 
Like waves against a ramshackle pier 
When thunder and rain 
Scar the windowpane once again 
I want you near 
As long as I hear your footsteps 
In the dark 
That's all I need 

I'm longing to see you 
I want you, I need you 
Like a child who feels afraid 
Of the dark at night 
Hoping to hear a gentle touch 
Turning on a welcome light 
As long as I hear your 
Footsteps 
In the dark 
That's all I need 
As long as I hear your 
Footsteps 
In the dark 
That's all I need 

Footsteps in the dark 
Only love will break your heart 
Footsteps, footsteps 
Footsteps in the dark 
Only love will break your heart 
Footsteps, footsteps
