Track Name: Put It To Rest
It’s just a matter of time
I thought I knew what I wanted

We both know what we think so
can we stop dancing in this
circle of mistrust
this tangle of lust

He would be heartbroken and
she would be heartbroken
and I would hate myself
no it would not do me well

For something that means nothing
It means nothing

Still I think what it would be like
having you taking up my heart
but it’s full
already full
and I know that yours is too
so can we please just get through
this mess?
boy, let’s put it to rest
you and I will do what we do best
let’s put it to rest

So take your hand out of mine
I don’t want it there
this time I’ve had enough
so I’ve gotta play it tough

No more leaning to my ear
whispering what I want to hear
because it means nothing now
we’ve made no oaths, no vows

So I don’t owe you anything

Still I think what it would be like
having you taking up my heart
but it’s full
already full
and I know that yours is too
so can we please just get through
this mess?
boy, let’s put it to rest
you and I will do what we do best
let’s put it to rest

It’s just a matter of time
I thought I knew what I wanted
Track Name: Are You Happy?
I'm getting on with things
just as you knew I would
but my heart always rings
with your echoes as it should

I know I've tears to cry
but I've still got my whole life
yet as time goes by
the more I realise

I've lost my best friend
and there's so much I wanna tell you
and no, it's not all important
I just wanna know

Is your mother well?
Does your father make you cups of tea?
And is your brother, and his girl, still happy?
I've been working hard
I still sing and laugh when I want to
Is that what you're going through?
Are you happier than me?

I hope the weather's warm
when you go on your holiday
the weather here is cold
I'll sit inside and watch the rain
and think to myself

Is your mother well?
Does your father make you cups of tea?
And is your brother, and his girl, still happy?
I've been working hard
but this is not what I'm used to
and I could ask but I don't want to
Are you happier than me?

Is your mother well?
Does your father make you cups of tea?
And is your brother, and his girl, still happy?
Have you made new friends?
Is there a girl that you fancy?
Is there anything you wanna tell me?
Are you happier than me?
I hope you're happier than me
I'm sure you're happier than me
