Stuck 02:42
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

Wonky Face 04:49
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

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?

Ready 04:55
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...
