Track Name: High and Mighty
you say "what makes you so high and mighty?"
it might be that i'm mighty high
i might be feeling slighted slightly
quite rightly, as you imply

it's quite likely that you quite like me
are you still perfect just to spite me?
i know all this is quite unlike me
it might be that i'm mighty high

crikey o'reilly, i am highly
blessed but yes, you will still find me
blindly hanging on so tightly
to the thought you might be mine

i wish you'd grab me, say you'd have me
sadly, i would give in gladly
we both behave so badly
it might be that we're mighty high

it's passion over consequence
and fashion don't mean confidence
i'm dashing and incompetent
it might be that i'm mighty high
Track Name: What You Took
see-through
am i that blatant, obvious and see-through?
do i sometimes act like this is a read-through?
a preview of something yet to come

can you read me like a book?
oh, don't give me that look
am i that feeling that you never shook?
and what you took you deserve it, you should take it all

you're that little tune that gets stuck inside my head
i don't wanna move i've been stuck inside my bed

see-through
am i that blatant, obvious and see-through?
do i sometimes act like this is a read-through?
a preview of something yet to come

can you see me clear as day?
oh, don't look at me that way
am i that feeling that you can't escape
and what you take you deserve it, you should take it all

you're that little tune that gets stuck inside my head
i don't wanna move i've been stuck inside my bed

see-through
am i that blatant, obvious and see-through?
do i sometimes act like this is a read-through?
a preview of something yet to come

but i need you
and if i'm ever mean i just don't mean to
do you have something that needs to be seen to?
what we've been through still has more things yet to come
Track Name: Dig Me Up
you sink with the surface of your drink
oh, i see you shrink away
every little thing is ok
or so we say

try to have a great time
i heard through the grapevine you cried
that's reassuring
that's reassuring for me

do you think romantics are extinct?
well, i don't care either way
every little thing is okay
darling, you can go your own way

and try to have a great time
i heard through the grapevine you cried
that's reassuring
that's reassuring for me

are you missing the old me?
a little bird told me you cried
that's reassuring
that's reassuring for me
i hope no-one makes you feel better

you sink, you sink
with the surface of your drink
i'll sink with you

do you think, do you think
romantics are extinct?
well, i do too

i can think of a hundred odd reasons for you to hate my guts
but it seems that a hundred off reasons isn't enough
i suppose i may turn out to be a diamond in the rough
but if that's the case you will be inclined to dig me up
Track Name: Good News
i've been going steady, slowly heading to extinction
what you saying? how you doing? what you thinking?
i must admit that i did a little drinking
and started thinking of you

i know you don't want to know the truth
unless it's good news
