Track Name: Tonight
At 17 I ruled the world, or so it seemed to me
At 18 I could buy a pint, at last – legally
At 19 I said goodbye and set off on my own
At 20 I fell in love and grow up far from home

I know I’m gonna be alright tonight, with you lot by my side
I know, we’re gonna do things right, tonight, as long as we’re together

At 21 I felt alive, I always gave my all
At 25 I started having trouble with my balls
At 30 I reassessed and set off once again
At 39 I’m doing fine and never alone

No man is an island
No man is an island
Track Name: Not of this Earth
We’re a big machine, no friends no scene, to oil our massive egos
Victims of our self-esteem, no time for empty heroes
On the TV screen, in magazines and on the side of buses
Won’t you listen hard and bear with us as we don’t understand

We are not of this Earth
Though we look like you

We are not of this Earth
A breed apart, we know our worth
We are not of this Earth
Come with us, build a new heaven
Track Name: The Pub of My Dreams
In the pub of my dreams there is nothing to eat
But Seabrooks and Big D
And ploughmans for the weirdos who make the place complete
Butties just for funerals and sometimes when clubs meet

The barmaid is Rose and the landlord has a red nose
I swear he paints it on
Students mix with old time drunks and mostly rub along
Dodging rounds is a cardinal sin and simply isn’t done

I think I know where it is
Or thereabouts
Would you like to go?
We’ll call for Daz and trundle up, swill four cans on the way
Laugh and joke like giddy kids, with far too much to say

Do you know where it is?
Or thereabouts
Would you like to go?
The Pogues are on the juke box, and John’s out on the floor
The dryer in the gents doesn’t work, and nor do half the blokes
We’ll stay until they kick us out, and stagger towards home
From the pub of my dreams

Do you know where it is?
Or thereabouts
Would you like to go?
Belinda’s on the playlist and Al’s just closed the door
We’ll try to say Gemütlichkeit and sing until we’re hoarse
I’ll drink away my worldly cares and put snuff up my nose
In the pub of my dreams

But it’s nothing without you
It’s nothing without me

[He paints it on
Al’s locked the door
Buy more Big D
Belinda
Dave’s on the floor]
Track Name: One For No Reason At All
If I can dream it, I can see it
If I can see it, I can touch it
If I can touch it, I can love it
If I can love it, I can become it

Think big, aim high,
Carpe diem, give it a try
Two ears, but one mouth
Built to listen, more than shout

I want to know, what you know, what do you know?
Do you want to know, what I know, does it show?
Let’s have one for the road
And one for good luck….

And one for no reason at all

If I can make it, I can break it
If I can break it, I think I’ll hate it
If I can hate it, I can feel it
If I can feel it, I really mean it

The good, the bad, the ugly can be true
If I were you, I’d say a prayer or two
Just in case, you know – well, you never know
But it will all come out in the wash

What have you got to show, for what you know, where did it go?
I’m just a bloke, after all, does it show?
Let’s have one for the road
And one for good luck
Let’s have one for the road
And one for no reason at all
Track Name: Home Sweet Home
What do you know, hello, what brings you round here now?
It must be ten years since we said our goodbyes
How have you been, I mean, I can see that you’re well
You still look the same and your smile makes me smile

I’ve been all alone with my hundreds of friends
It’s been great, you know, all the sights and the smells
You should have seen it all, my beautiful friend
But I never found a home without you

Nice tattoo, suit you, is it Celtic or something
From down under where I suppose you’ve been hunting
For yourself, at length, did you find you in the end?
Is that a yes, or maybe I could have guessed

Is this home, sweet home
I have found home sweet home
I’ve been all alone with my hundreds of friends
But I never found a home without you
