1. LEFT TO MY OWN DEVICES (Tennant/Lowe)
-------------------------
(Uuu.....us)

I get out of bed at half past ten
Phone up a friend, who's a party animal
Turn on the news and drink some tea 
Maybe if you're with me we'll do some shopping

One day I'll read, or learn to drive a car
If you pass the test, you can beat the rest
But I don't like to compete, or talk street, street, street
I can pick up the best from the party animal

     I could leave you, say goodbye
     Or I could love you, if I try
     And I could
     And left to my own devices, I probably would
     Left to my own devices, I probably would

Pick up a brochure about the sun
Learn to ignore what the photographer saw
I was always told that you should join a club
Stick with the gang, if you want to belong

I was a lonely boy, no strength, no joy
In a world of my own at the back of the garden
I didn't want to compete, or play out on the street
For in a secret life I was a round head general

     I could leave you, say goodbye
     Or I could love you, if I try
     And I could
     And left to my own devices, I probably would
     Left to my own devices, I probably would
     Oh, I would

I was faced with a choice at a difficult age
Would I write a book? Or should I take to the stage?
But in the back of my head I heard distant feet
Che Guevara and De‚bussy to a disco beat

It's not a crime when you look the way you do
The way I like to picture you
When I get home, it's late at night
I pour a drink and watch the fight

Turn off the TV, look at a book
Pick up the phone, fix some food
Maybe I'll sit up all night and day
Waiting for the minute I hear you say

     I could leave you, say goodbye
     Or I could love you, if I try
     And I could
     And left to my own devices, I probably would
     Come on, baby, say goodbye
     I could love you, if I try
     And I could
     And left to my own devices, I probably would
     Left to my own devices, I probably would

Out of bed, at half past ten
The party animal phones a friend
Picks up news about the sun
And the working day has just begun

Sticks with the gang - at the back of the street
Pass the test - and you don't compete

Drive the car, if you're with me
Che Guevara's drinking tea
He reads about a new device
And takes to the stage in a secret life

(Uuu.....us)

     Left to my own devices, I probably would
     If I was left to my own devices, I possibly would

(Uuu.....us)

     If I was left to my own devices, I probably would
     If I was left to my own devices, I probably would

     I could leave you, say goodbye
     Or I could love you, if I try
     And I could
     And left to my own devices, I probably would
     Left to my own devices, I probably would
     Come on, baby      
     Left to my own devices, I probably would

2. I WANT A DOG (Tennant/Lowe)
---------------
I want a dog,
A chihuahua
When I get back to my small flat
I want to hear somebody bark
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely

Don't want a cat,
Scratching its claws all over my
Habitat
Giving no love and getting fat
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely
     And a cat's no help with that

I want a dog,
To walk in the park
When it gets dark, my dog will bark
At any passers-by
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely
     I want a dog

I want a dog,
A chihuahua
When I get back to my small flat
I want to hear somebody bark
     Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely
     I want a dog

3. DOMINO DANCING (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------------
(All day, all day)

I don't know why, I don't know how
I thought I loved you, but I'm not sure now
I've seen you look at strangers too many times
A love-you-once is of a, a different kind

Remember when we felt the sun
A love like paradise, how hot it burned
A threat of distant thunder, the sky was red
And when you walked, you always - turned every head

     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day) Domino dancing
     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day, domino dancing)
                                                       
I thought that when we fought I was to blame
But now I know you play a different game
I've watched you dance with danger, still wanting more
Add another number to the score

     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day) Domino dancing
     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day, domino dancing)

When you look around you wonder
Do you play to win?
Or are you just a bad loser?

     (All day, all day)
     (All day, all day)

     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day, domino dancing)

     (All day, all day)
     (All day, all day)

I don't know why, I don't know how
I'd thought I loved you, but I'm not sure now
I hear the thunder crashing, the sky is dark
And now a storm is breaking within my heart

     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day) Domino dancing
     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day, domino dancing)

     (All day, all daeheheheheheheh)
     (All day, all daeheheheheheheh)

     (All day, all day)
     (All day, all day)
     (Domino dancing)

     (All day, all day)
     (All day, all day)

     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day, domino dancing)

     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day) Domino dancing
     (All day, all day) Watch them all fall down
     (All day, all day)

4. I'M NOT SCARED (Tennant/Lowe)
-----------------
Your life's a mystery, mine is an open book
If I could read your mind, I think I'd take a look
     I don't care
     Baby, I'm not scared

What have you got to fight? What do you need to prove?
You're always telling lies, and that's the only truth
     I don't care
     Baby, I'm not scared

          Tonight the streets are full of actors
          I don't know why
          Oh, take these dogs away from me
          Before they, they bite

What have you got to say of shadows in your past?
I thought that, if you paid, you'd keep them off our backs
     But I don't care
     Baby, I'm not scared

What have you got to hide? Who will it compromise?
Where do we have to be, so I can laugh and you'll be free?
     I'd go anywhere
     Baby, I don't care
     I'm not scared
     I don't care
     Baby, I'm not scared


          Tonight the streets are full of actors
          I don't know why
          Oh, take these dogs away from me
          Before they, they bite
          Tonight I fought and made my mind up
          I know it's right
          I know these dogs still snap around us
          But I can, I can fight

If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do
If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do - you
If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do
If I was you, if I was you
I wouldn't treat me the way you do - you

     I'm not scared
     Baby, I don't care
     I'd go anywhere
     Baby, I'm not scared
     I'm not scared
     No, I'm not scared

5. ALWAYS ON MY MIND/IN MY HOUSE (Thompson/James/Christopher/Tennant/Lowe)
--------------------------------
Maybe I didn't treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn't love you quite as often as I could
Little things I should've said and done, I never took the time
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, I'm so happy that you're mine
If I made you feel second best, I'm so sorry, I was blind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind

          Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
          Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
          Satisfied

Little things I should've said and done, I never took the time
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind

          Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
          Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always in my house

(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)

"You were always on my mind, it's true
 I never thought of anyone else but you
 You were on my mind and in my dreams 
 I should have stopped to make you see
 You were always..."

(You were always)

"I worked so hard, I thought you knew,
 My love, I did it all for you
 I never really had the time
 I guess you couldn't read my mind
 You were always..."

(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)
(Always)
(You were always)

     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind
     You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didn't love you quite as often as I could
Maybe I didn't hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, I'm so happy that you're mine

(Maybe I didn't love you...)
