1. HOME AND DRY (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------------------------
So my baby's on the road 
Doing business, selling loads 
Charming everyone there 
With the sweetest smile 
Oh tonight 
I miss you 
Oh tonight 
I wish you 
Could be here with me 
But I won't see you 
'Till you've made it back again 
Home and dry 
Home and dry
There's a plane at JFK 
To fly you back from far away 
All those dark and frantic 
Transatlantic miles 
Oh tonight 
I miss you 
Oh tonight 
I wish you 
Could be here with me 
But I won't see you 
'Till you've made it back again 
Home and dry 
Home and dry 
Far away 
Through night and day 
You fly long haul tonight 
Come to me 
You know I'll be here 
When you call tonight 
Oh tonight 
I miss you 
Oh tonight 
I wish you 
Could be here with me 
But I won't see you 
'Till you've made it back again 
Home and dry 
Home and dry 

 

2. I GET ALONG (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------------------
Feeling like I'm stuck in a hole 
body and soul 
while you're out of control 
now I know where you had to go 
well, I think we both know 
why it had to be so 
I've been trying not to cry 
when I'm in the public eye 
Stuck here with the shame 
I'm taking
my share of the blame 
While making
sudden plans that don't include you 
I get along, get along 
without you very well 
I get along very well 
Now I know you'd much rather be 
with rock royalty 
instead of someone like me 
The big boys are back and we need
them, you said 
Think it was something you'd read 
and it stuck in your head 
Even though I don't suppose 
that's as far as it goes 
You've got quite an appetite
for being wronged and in the night 
well from now on it won't affect me 
I get along, get along 
without you very well 
I get along very well 
The morning after the night before 
I've been alerted 
to your lies. 
I phoned you up 
your calls were all diverted 
Took a long time to track you down 
even then you were defiant 
It's not what you think it is you said 
and preceeded to deny it 
So I lost my patience at last 
and it happens so fast 
you belong in the past 
I've been trying not to cry 
when I'm in the public eye 
Stuck here with the shame 
I'm taking
my share of the blame 
while making
sudden plans that don't include you 
I get along, get along 
Without you very well 
I get along very well 

 

3. BIRTHDAY BOY (Tennant/Lowe)
------------------------------
Birthday boy
can't explain 
Christmas Eve
He's born again
On the line
a broken train 
Going nowhere
endless rain 
Birthday boy
so afraid 
Plays the machines
in the arcade 
Oh baby, do you remember 
he's been through all this before? 
Spent the summer 
getting nowhere 
Taking all of the blame 
For the city 
Calculating 
From pain comes pity 
Christmas Eve
the time of joy 
If you believe
in birthday boy 
This time around
it's all a mistake 
Is he deluded
or just a fake? 
Oh baby, do you remember 
he's been through all this before?
Spent the summer 
getting nowhere 
Taking all of the blame 
for the city 
calculating 
from pain comes pity 
if you knew his name 
would you feel the same? 
if you knew his name 
birthday boy
stands apart 
as the drama's 
about to start
A quick betrayal 
A speedy trial 
As before 
complete denial 
Oh baby, do you remember 
he's been through all this before? 
Spent the summer 
getting nowhere 
Taking all of the blame 
for the city 
Calculating 
from pain comes pity 
if you knew his name 
would you feel the same? 

 

4. LONDON(Tennant/Lowe/Zippel)
-----------------------------
We came from the far north 
summered in Crimea 
deserted the armed forces 
had to disappear 
made it to the free west 
on a chartered flight 
so we could see what 
we trained to fight 
We were in London 
"Let's do it - Let's break the law!" 
We were in London 
Tell it like it is 
We were in London 
Tell it like it is 
Looking for hard work 
or credit-card fraud 
What do you expect from us? 
We come from abroad 
to get ourselves a new job 
on a building site 
They work you so hard
but we trained to fight 
We were in London 
"Let's do it - Let's break the law!" 
We were in London 
Tell it like it is 
We were in London 
"Let's do it - Let's break the law!" 
We were in London 
Tell it like it is 
My father fought in Afghanistan 
His widow's pension ain't worth a damn 
My mother works and goes home to cry 
I want to live before I die 
We were in London 
"Let's do it - Let's break the law!" 
We were in London 
Tell it like it is 
We were in London 
Tell it like it is 

 

5. E-MAIL (Tennant/Lowe)
------------------------
Communication's never been 
as easy as today 
and it would make me happy 
when you'd gone so far away 
if you'd send me an email 
that says "I love you" 
Send me an email 
that says "I love you" 
Now time and distance 
melt away 
No digital delay 
And some things 
can be written down 
That we're to shy to say 
Send me an email 
that says "I love you" 
Send me an email 
that says "I love you" 
There may be other 
temptations in your life 
Don't want to add more
complications to your life 
but I'm sending this e-mail
to say "I love you" 
Now there's a ghost
within this house 
You're haunting me tonight 
I'm looking at some photographs 
and thinking that I might 
jump on a plane 
and surprise you where 
you are
but do you want me there?
I'm so insecure 
but one thing would make me sure 
If you'd
send me an e-mail 
that says "I love you" 
Send me an e-mail 
that says "I love you" 

 

6. THE SAMURAI IN AUTUMN (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------------------
It's not as easy as it was 
Or as different as it could be 
For the samurai in autumn 
It's not as easy as it was 
Or as different as it could be 
For the samurai in autumn 

 

7. LOVE IS A CATASTROPHE (Tennant/Lowe)
--------------------------------------
Love is a catastrophe 
Look what it's done to me 
Brought me down here so low 
Stranded, nowhere to go 
No concentration 
Just rerunning conversation 
Trying to understand 
How I fell into this quicksand 
What happens next? 
With life I'm unimpressed 
Pain like a cutter's knife 
Never been lonelier in my life 
Who issued the instruction 
for this mad act of destruction? 
An end to equilibrium 
Fate laughs:
Look what we've done to him! 
High wind through the trees 
Falling November leaves 
A weak sun hanging low 
Summer seems so long ago 
All my former dreams 
Tender romantic schemes 
revealed as so naive 
To think I could believe 
In love as the kindest law 
not as a declaration of war 
on my life and sanity 
Now I know at last for me 
Love is a catastrophe 

 

8. HERE (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------
We all have a dream
of a place we belong 
The fire is burning
and the radio's on 
Somebody smiles
and it means "I love you"
but sometimes we don't notice
when the dream has come true 
You've got a home here 
Call it what you want 
You've got a home here 
To return to when you can't 
face the world and you need
some support to succeed
You've got a home 
We all make a mess
of our lives from time to time 
It's part of the process 
that you stumble as you climb 
And if you ever feel 
the pain is far too big a deal 
I say with pride 
I'll be on your side 
You've got a home here
Call it what you want 
You've got a home here
You're gonna want it when you can't 
Face the world and you need 
some support to succeed 
You've got a home 

 

9. THE NIGHT I FELL IN LOVE (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------------------------------------
I was backstage 
couldn't believe my luck was in 
I saw him approach 
wearing the most approachable grin 
When he said hello
I was surprised he spoke so politely 
I said I'd liked the show 
Well, he just smiled 
I guess it happens nightly 
and so 
I fell in love 
We went to his room 
He had a video camera 
I was so nervous 
I had to try hard not to stammer 
He said
"I'm glad you liked the show
That crowd was dope out there 
tonight, alright
You wanna see some more? 
Well be my guest 
You can have a private performance" 
I'd fallen in love" 
I didn't ask why 
Though he seemed like such a
regular guy
he said we could be
secret lovers 
Just him and me 
Then he joked
"Hey, man! 
Your name isn't Stan, is it?
We should be together!" 
And he was passionate
I guess I would rate
him a nine out of ten
by then
I'd fallen in love 
When I've asked 
why have I heard so much
about him being charged
with homophobia and stuff 
he just shrugged 
Next morning we woke
he couldn't have been a nicer bloke
Over breakfast made jokes
about Dre and his homies and folks
Neither of us asked if or when
we would see each other again
but I thought that was cool
'Cause I was already late for school
by then
I'd fallen in love 

 

10. YOU CHOOSE (Tennant/Lowe)
----------------------------
He's gone
you've lost 
Stay behind
and count the cost 
You try
You loose 
You don't fall in love by chance 
You choose 
It's a decision 
made over time
Should you take the risk 
and start to climb 
the steepest hill 
only to find 
Halfway there 
you've been left behind?
Choosing to love 
is risking a lot
and trying to change 
and to keep all you've got 
But don't pretend 
it comes out of the blue 
You take a chance 
and see it through 
and if it's refused 
what can you do? 
Continue hopefully? 
start a new? 
Lick your wounds
buy your booze 
You won't get drunk by accidental
choose 
Don't blame him 
for refusing your bid 
He didn't decide to love 
You did 
Learn the lesson
take the blows 
You didn't fall in love by chance 
You choose 
Play the sad songs
Sing the blues 
You don't fall in love by chance
You choose
