Track Name: Good Old Days
These times we live in they confuse me,
I'm another victim of history,

All these new and modish fads,
Aren't as good as what we had,

I remember when a phone was just a phone,
You couldn't take it with you; it was wired to your home,
When the movie finished you rewound the video,
A hippo took an apricot a Guava and a mango,

Back when Packham was still a punk and,
Ant and Dec were PJ and Duncan,

Things were good back then,

In the good old days,
There really wasn't an app for that,
We all had simpler ways,
There wasn't all of this modern crap,
Now I'm discombobulated,
Cos I'm more of a 90s chap

These kids today they've got their Gangnam style,
And relentlessly molesting Bieberphiles,

It's just not really the same as,
Gary Barlow and Macarenas,

Back in the day I rarely ever got to see,
What people I barely knew were having for their tea,
We only had four channels on our TV,
Ruled by Misters Motivator, Blobby and Bean,

Bull Boys shoes were all we needed,
We could have a thought and we didn't need to tweet it,
Things were good back then,

In the good old days,
There really wasn't an app for that,
We all had simpler ways,
There wasn't all of this modern crap,
Now I'm discombobulated,
Cos I'm more of a 90s chap
In the good old days,
What the hell is a Mocha frappe?
Track Name: Edge Of Life
I know exactly what you're thinking,
You hate the world and it hates you back,
You see this ship we're on is sinking,
So you're trying to abandon like a rat,

Desolate, desperate, dying for rest from it,
You regret each breath you've just no strength left for it,

Now, you're standing on the edge of life,
And I'm sure it's justified,
But now you see the end is really nigh,
And you're suddenly paralysed,
Your mind was set but now it's been compromised,
And you're struggling to decide,
But the crowd just may have made your mind,

Your inner struggle's on display now,
The turmoil you face is clear to see,
The question's more pertinent on the way down,
Your default response is despondency,

Shut out, rejected, distraught and dejected,
You cry out for help, but they just do not get it

Edge of life,
Dead on time

You missed your chance, you rue the day,
You knew the answer, knew the way,
You lost your grasp, you lost your faith,
All that you had has gone away
Track Name: How Do You Love Me?
Here's what perplexes me,
I say expectantly,
My imperfections are plain and clear to see,
Yet still you stay by my side,

I'm maladjusted, borderline neurotic
Seems an injustice that you should be with me,

How do you love me when I don't even love myself?
How do you do the things you do and do so well?

I'm so in awe of you,
You're selfless, warm and true,
You're sympathetic and good as good can be,
In fact, you're perfect to me,

I'm defective, defunct and decrepit,
Yet you've elected that you will be with me,

How do you love me when I don't even love myself?
How do you do the things you do and do so well?
How do you love me when I don't even love myself?
Why do you choose me over anybody else?
