Track Name: Stuck
I'm stuck on you
And there's nothing I can do
When I see your face things just fall into place
It's got me all of a skew

I'm stuck on you
And my heart feels like fondue
Thought it was a welt but then you made it melt
Yeah I'm stuck on you

I never thought that I would be
Penning these words in a song
But now I find myself singing them
All day long

I'm stuck on you
And there's nothing I can do
Cos when I look in your eyes I get the biggest surprise
Cos I can see you feel it too

I never thought that I would be
Penning these words in a song
But now I find myself singing them
All day long

I'm stuck on you
And there's nothing I can do
Cos when I look in your eyes I get the biggest surprise
Cos I can see you feel it too
Yeah I'm stuck on you
And now we're stuck like glue
I'm stuck on you
Track Name: Wonky Face
I've got a wonky face
Am I from a wonky race?
With a lopsided steeple
Especially for boss-eyed people

And birds with beaks with one side bigger than the other
And crooked streets that fight with another
And pavements that long to batten down the hatches
And houses that long to play with matches

I see a skewiff sky
Or is just my funny eye?
Am I looking at the sun
Or the bullet of a cock-eyed gun?

That shoots just like a boomerang
And leaves a lasting tremor in your hand
You duck to avoid the slug that's heading for your head
So your neck's not left hanging by a thread

I don't care if this doesn't make sense
Pours out of my pen when I pense
Birds get away with tweeting in riddles
While the world cooks on a griddle
The less I care the more sense I make
I'm always happier when there is cake
I will save the crumbs for the birds
Maybe more if they sing in thirds

I've got a wonky face
But would I win the wonky race?
To the lopsided steeple
Especially for boss-eyed people
Track Name: Howling At The Moon
There's nobody who can love me like you do
You're the only one who can stop me howling at the moon
Since the day you had to leave
Made my poor heart grieve
Nothing to do except howl at the moon

I get so loud that people think I'm a wolf
But no matter how loud I growl it doesn't fill the gulf
People don't go out at night
In case I give them a fright
All I can do is sit here and sulk

I could be wrong
I could be right
It's not worth staying
Up all night
I sit here singing
At the moon
Hoping that you'll
Come back to me soon

Where do I even begin to start?
Seeing you, you know it tears me apart
The moon is my only friend
Will this torment ever end?
You don't know what you're doing to my heart

You hold the sky it's there in your eyes
How do you sleep with the stars in your head?
Some thought you were blind
Who'd know what you'd find?
Falling so deep when you're lying in bed
How do you sleep with the stars in your head?
Track Name: Ready
Yes I've been in love
I've been in love before
So I know
I know what's in store

I wasn't ready then but I'm ready now
Got my head around it all somehow
Now I'm ready, ready for love
And it's you I'm thinking of
Oh baby, I'm ready
I'm ready for love

Ready for love...

Healing took time
But now I'm ready to try
Look my heart
My heart is open wide

Baby what you do to me, you helped me to see that I'm ready
Ready to be cooed at and wooed, you chased away my blues
Tell me what's a girl to do
When there's a space inside her shaped just for you?
Oh baby, I'm ready
I'm ready for love

Ready love...
