01. When The Sun Goes Down

Who’s that girl there?
I wonder what went wrong
So that she had to roam the streets
She dunt do major credit cards
I doubt she does receipts
It’s all not quite legitimate

And what a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he’ll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes
Yeah, that he’s got a driving ban
Amongst some other offences

And I’ve seen him with girls of the night
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
They’re all infected but he’ll be alright
Cause he’s a scumbag, don’t you know
I said he’s a scumbag, don’t you know!

Although you’re trying not to listen
Overt your eyes and staring at the ground
She makes a subtle proposition
“I’m sorry love I’ll have to turn you down”

He must be up to something
What are the chances sure it’s more than likely
I’ve got a feeling in my stomach
I start to wonder what his story might be

They said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here

Look here comes a Ford Mondeo
Isn’t he Mister Inconspicuous?
And he don’t even have to say ‘owt
She’s in the stance ready to get picked up

Bet she’s delighted when she sees him
Pulling in and giving her the eye
Because she must be fucking freezing
Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky
It doesn’t stop in the winter, no
Around here

They said it changes when the sun goes down
Over the river going out of town

What a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he’ll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes that he’s got a nasty plan
I hope you’re not involved at all

02. Stickin’ To The Floor

Won’t somebody let me out?
Don’t want to stick around no more
Sick of looking at you strange
Sick of sticking to the floor

No one of you has got an ounce of style in ya
Said not one of you, no

Fuck it all and break your nose
If they keep on pushing you around
Keep on stepping on your toes
Pick you up when you fall down

No one of you has got an ounce of style in ya
Said not one of you, no

No one of you has got an ounce of style in ya, no
Said not one of you, no

03. Settle For A Draw

Well I watch you tangle every weekend
It might start different but it ends up the same
One minute you’re casually speaking
The next it all goes up and you pour fuel on the flame
With your Jerry can of words and tones

And no one’s gonna start a revolution
So we best leave it well alone
And there’s something that Frankie used to say, apparently
Oh he says settle for a draw
Well you’re not gonna get no more
So you should settle for a draw
I told you once I’m sure
I told you once I’m sure
You should settle for a draw
Why don’t you settle for a draw?

Well you’re right it is one set of rules for her
And then another set for you
But that’s just the way it is I suppose
And there’s nowt you can do
And lets not fall in the trap
Of Answering back
I am just a beginner
But she’ll be the only winner
That’s for sure
So take the draw, if it’s available
And if it sets on fire don’t get out your jerry can of…
…words and tones

And no one’s gonna start a revolution
So we best leave it well alone
And there’s something that Frankie used to say, apparently
Oh he says settle for a draw
Well you’re not gonna get no more
So you should settle for a draw
I told you once I’m sure
I told you once I’m sure
You should settle for a draw
Why don’t you settle for a draw?

04. 7

Well I wrote my number down
Never wrote it down before
Was gonna bring it over like something from a film
But I didn’t have the bottle at all

Well I’m looking and you kept staring
Your thoughts bearing up with mine
And when you’re so pretty and I’m so shy
You probably didn’t give me the eye but I’m sure you did

Well I went outside
Couldn’t say I tried
And I felt regret
Because you haven’t bashed me and dashed back in
Cause the ship hasn’t sailed yet

But when I did I couldn’t see your face
I could see your mates but that wouldn’t do
Well I dashed around, tried to find you
But you were, nowhere to be seen
Oh no no…

(la la la, la la la, la, la la la la)
(la la la, la la la, la, la la la la)
(la la la, la la la, la, la la la la)
(la la la, la la la, la, la la la la)

Well she moved in ways, that kept her there
In our minds for days
And weeks and months
I was that amazed
And there she stayed
Surrounded by the what if’s and the maybe’s
