Track Name: My Genre
My Genre

VERSE
I’m playing in C
Because it’s the easiest key
Does that make me a little bit lazy?

This guitar’s yours,
Bought it from a charity store
Cos your mum thought

I would be nice, like sugar and spice
Like chocolate mice
Like the sun when its shining so bright

PRE-CHORUS
I Don’t know what to say
I Don’t know what to play
Maybe I’ll just cheekily delay

CHORUS
The fact it’s not Jazz it’s not pop
Nor acoustic or rock
It’s just what I need to sing
It may not sound great
But please appreciate
That it’s what I need to sing
You are my genre. X2
You are my genre

VERSE 2
Write you a summer song,
Hoping you’d sing along
Probably not because music isn’t really your thing

Take me to the beach laugh at who we meet
Swimming in the sea then you’d lie with me

PRE-CHORUS
I Don’t know what to say
I Don’t know what to play
Maybe I’ll just cheekily delay

CHORUS
The fact it’s not Jazz its not pop
Nor acoustic or rock
It’s just what I need to sing
It may not sound great
But please appreciate
That it’s what I need to sing
You are my genre X4
You are my genre

I’m playing in C
Because it’s the easiest key
Does that make me a little bit lazy?

This guitar’s yours,
Bought it from a charity store

You are my genre x6
You are my genre

I’m playing in C
Because it’s the easiest key
Does that make me a little bit lazy?

Track Name: Far Away
VERSE 1
I could say that I'm the only one for you
But you know that's a lie
Cos you’re such a great guy
You are everything

VERSE 2
I could say that I've been loosing sleep over you
Ill be blunt that's not true
But while I sleep I dream of you
I dream of you

PRE-CHORUS
If we get together like the freckles on my hands that you held when we last danced
I'll hold on forever

CHORUS
So can I be in your fairytale and we can turn a new page
Cos every story has to start somewhere

VERSE 3
I could say that it was love when I met you
But we just became friends
I though that was the end
But you're always on my mind

VERSE 4
So I will say that I'm just happy to know you
Cos your such a great guy
And I'm guessing that's why
There's someone else for you

CHORUS
So can I be in your fairytale and we can turn a new page
Cos every story has to start somewhere
So let me be in your fairytale and we can start a new age
In a land far away

Intro times 2
BRIDGE
But I can try harder
Though I won't change who I am
Cos I've been here longer
So I hope you understand
That I can try harder
Though I won't change who I am
Cos I've been here longer
yeahhhh

CHORUS
So can I be in your fairytale and we can turn a new page
Cos every story has to start somewhere
So let me be in your fairytale and we can start a new age
In a land far away x3

Track Name: Clown Fish
INTRO
AHHH X2

VERSE
Why do they tell you that love is all you need?
When I’ve loved you for years now but still you can’t see
That I’m running out of reasons to fake that same smile
I tried to be patient but it wasn’t worthwhile

PRE-CHORUS
But You walked away
So now I can say

CHORUS
Silence laughter
No smiles here after
My blue skies turn to grey

Don’t say it’ll be fine
I’ve heard that time to time
Don’t lead my feelings astray
Just let my tears fall like rain

VERSE 2
Then they tell you there’s other fish in the sea
But what if I’m a clown fish and I’m not funny
I stutter, I stumble I get my words wrong
So I write them all down and I finish the song

PRE-CHORUS
You walked away
So now I can say

CHORUS
Oh Silence laughter
No smiles here after
My blue skies turn to grey
Don’t say it’ll be fine
I’ve heard that time to time
Don’t lead my feelings astray
Just let my tears fall like rain

AHHH X2

BRIDGE

Was a blind sighted dreamer
Had me wrapped around your finger
And you played me like a man plays his cards
Still I would linger
The line getting thinner from
Making or breaking my heart

PRE-CHORUS
You walked away
So now I can say

CHORUS
Oh Silence laughter
No smiles here after
My blue skies turn to grey
Don’t say it’ll be fine
I’ve heard that time to time
Don’t lead my feelings astray
Just let my tears fall like

Silence laughter
No smiles here after
My blue skies turn to grey
Don’t say it’ll be fine
I’ve heard that time to time
Don’t lead my feelings astray
Just let my tears fall like rain
Let my tears fall like rain
Just let my tears fall like rain

Track Name: I'll Miss
VERSE
Fingertips
Holding onto memories
Broken bits
You are my only remedy

A silent phone
Knowing that you’ll never call
Just alone
Believing that I’ve lost it all


PRE-CHORUS
I could sit by the window and watch the rainfall
But I know that wont change anything at all
I seam to remember and I thought I recall
Before you left, you said to me

CHORUS
I’ll miss the way your smile shines like the sun
I’ll miss the way you’d write me stupid songs
I’ll miss the way we’d dance, when the radio was on
To tell the truth, I’m already missing you

VERSE 3
You’ve disappeared
It’s like somebody rubbed you out
I need you here
To tell me what it’s all about

VERSE 4
Like autumn leaves
My heart is spinning round and round
Come back to me
I need the soul mate I had found

PRE-CHORUS
I could sit by the window and watch the rainfall
But I know that wont change anything at all
I seam to remember and I thought I recall
Before you left, you said to me

CHORUS
I’ll miss the way your smile shines like the sun
I’ll miss the way you’d write me stupid songs
I’ll miss the way we’d dance, when the radio was on
To tell the truth, I’m already missing you

BRIDGE
I go back to that night
Where you held me so tight
And everything was alright


ALTERNATIVE CHORUS
I’d miss that you compare me to the sun
And I miss the way you’d sing my stupid songs
And I miss the way we’d dance, but now the music has gone
To tell the truth,

CHORUS
I’ll miss the way your smile shines like the sun
I’ll miss the way you’d write me stupid songs
I’ll miss the way we’d dance, when the radio was on
To tell the truth,

Track Name: If I Could
Because you’re here you made it clear
That we would go through this together
Hundreds of tears these thirteen years
But we’re still holding on

A hospital bed with fears in my head
Nobody telling me the answers
Nothing was said my future ahead
You would always keep me strong

And I owe you everything
You mean everything

So you’d say
I would do it for you
If I could
I would do it for you
Ive always wished I could.

As I would ask why and we would both cry
As I had done nothing to deserve this
Soon I realize from deep inside
That my dreams could still come true

And I’d be ashamed and sometimes unnamed
Like I was different from the others
And I’d feel the pain and carry the blame but all the time loving

Id take away the pain I’d take away the blame id stop your tears from streaming
And the last thing I will say ill tell you everyday little girl never stop dreaming

And I owe you everything
And you, you mean everything

I would do it for you
If I could
I would do it for you
Ive always wished I could.

X2
