Track Name: Sparks
A7, D, F
I'm feeling electric,
Up my arms like a wire,
Appropriate attire,
Completely symmetrical,
Like a mirror between us,
Just fall into Venus.
There's no where else to go,
Just walk around - just wondering -
Oh no I'm lost,
And you are so shocked.
But there's no one else no,
Only you & I on the ground,
See but there's smoke surrounding your eyes,
Following white lies.
So open your eyes,
And I'll open my eyes.
Don't think twice,
Just open your eyes.
Am, D, F

Track Name: Wild's End
Capo 2nd
Em, G, C... -A
C, A, D...
Do you think I'm losing it?
If I'm always wasting time,
If I can't make up my mind,
Flitting between ridiculous dreams.
Always stuck in defence,
I'm at my wild's end.
A mermaid still wishing for legs,
And a monster with three different heads
I know it's too much to listen to,
But it's what I have to say to you,
I'm done swimming in toxic waste,
I'm learning that friendly smiling face.
X2
To make it easier,
When I have to be around these people,
Who have to ask why I am who I am,
Who have no idea who they are.
It's up while it's down,
It's in but it's out,
You paint over the pen marks,
You wear a mask more often than Tony Stark.
Em, G, C... -A
C, A, D...
I know it's too much to listen to,
But it's what I have to say to you,
I'm swimming in toxic waste,
I'm learning that friendly smiling face.

Track Name: To See & Not To Hear
Capo 2nd
INTRO C, A7, Em, G
C, A7, Em, G X2
I thought you'd understand,
I just wanted to hold your hand.
From the way I looked at you,
How can you say, you never knew?
F, G X2
This way I can learn from my mistakes,
I'm keeping track of the times you run away.
C, A7, Em, G X2
Don't you realize what you've done?
Is it crazy to fall in love?
What is right and what is wrong?
I'm not crazy for falling in love.
C, A7, Em, G X4
Coming over tonight I decided we need to talk,
But as I walk through the door you seem to be so shocked?
Asking how I got here as if you don't have a clue,
Looking at me like you never even knew... me?
I ask you to calm down and I say "you knew I was coming around",
But you just get more angry and leave to the next room and lock it down,
I don't know why you're shouting or why you picked up the phone,
I'm trying to explain to you but you're getting so confused.

C, A7, Em, G X2
Don't you realize what you've done?
Is it crazy to fall in love?
What is right and what is wrong?
I'm not crazy for falling in love.
F, G X2
Tell me you can see, what I see.
Tell me you can feel, what I feel. x2
C, A7, Em, G X4
Everything I did was all for you,
I got rid of her cause she was no good,
She was in the way of us being so happy,
When I saw that ring on that finger I just lost my mind.
(ring out & wait)
C, A7, Em, G X4
Don't you realise what you've done?
Is it evil to fall in love.
What is right and what is wrong?
I'm not crazy for falling in love.
F, G x8
Tell me you can see, what I see.
Tell me you can feel what I feel.
Why won't you just listen when I speak?
Why won't you stop running from me?
Track Name: If I Could Feel Love
G A
If I could feel love...
I'd find myself a boy we'd eat oodles of noodles together
If I could feel love...
I'd find myself a girl we'd hold hands and we'd feel safe and warm
If I could feel love...
I'd wake up early for breakfast and I wouldn't have to hope for more
If I could feel love...
I'd listen to more music but also not hear quite as much
C
If I could feel love...
I like to think I would know it
If I could feel love...
I think I could show it
If I could feel love...
If I could feel love...
I'd talk about my heart like it was more than a hollow organ
If I could feel love...
I might be more of a dog person, I could go on walks in the rain

C
If I could feel love...
I like to think I would know it
If I could feel love...
I think I could show it
If I could feel love...

G A C
But I can't feel love... any more.

G A...
Track Name: Like A Fox
B, D, G, E
B, D, G, E*-D*
Like a fox in the day you can try to find me,
What would you say, "watching from afar" or "hiding away"?
Is it all just a dream? Could I maybe stay,
Close enough to see but not nearly close enough to play.
These games.

G-E x3 F#
Call it life, call it the way,
It has to be and always has been.
Say it's me, say it's strange,
Saying all these terrible things...

Would it be nice to turn off the lights,
And see you scrambling for the nearest thing to,
Hold on to, would you then see the truth. X2
B
Like a fox in the day I see you smile at me,
But I can see those teeth,
Do you want to crawl back where you came. *slight rhythmn change*
Would it be oh so wrong to just speak the truth,
But not go out of my way just to hurt you.
G-E x3
Call it life, call it the way,
It has to be and always has been.
Say it's me, say it's strange,
Saying all these terrible things...

Would it be nice to turn off the lights,
And see you scrambling for the nearest thing to,
Hold on to, would you then see the truth. X2

Bridge: E - D - B. E - D - G. x2

For so long, whatever you say has been how it's done,
Would people rather lead a planet, that no person could even live on.
How much can you ignore, before you just let go of it all,
Before it all just falls down.

Would it be nice to turn off the lights,
And see you scrambling for the nearest thing to,
Hold on to, would you then see the truth. X3

B X2
Track Name: Ticking Away
Intro C - G - F X2
C - G - F X8
Let's go back to when nothing else mattered but this
I could listen to the same track list, over and over
Every day, and not even play
Cause I've never really been good with my hands anyway

Get home earlier than everyone else
Cause I just need some time by myself
Lately I've been feeling that same way...
Too many jobs I plan ahead
When it gets to the day I sit in bed
Wondering about if I'd have done something else instead...
A, F, C, G
C, F, G
Ticking away, the years go by so fast I never realised... its-
Ticking away...

C - G - F
What do you mean I'm not 15?
So I gathered up all my years to just be in my 20's?
That's not how I had it planned.
I want to get a better job,
But there's still a part of me holding on...
What if I could still go long?
But it's-
A, F, C, G
C, F, G
Ticking away, the years go by so fast I never realised... its-
Ticking away...
F G A G
This isn't how I had it planned.
X2
A, F, C, G
C, F, G
Ticking away, the years go by so fast I never realised... its-
Ticking away... but it's never too late.
