Taking No Chances With You (Gavaghan) Taking no chances with you Every little thing, oh you pretty little thing Has gotta be just like you want it to The contracts are signed I learnt all my lines right on cue Taking no chances with you Taking no chances with you Fixed in my head, I'm better off dead If you should ever take leave of me Waited too long, this time I'll be strong for God's sake! No room for a single mistake And I don't have a chance left to take Well, it's about time that a woman like you Kept me in line, at the front of the queue anticipating You strolled in through the waiting room door Took my meagre possessions right up from the floor Suffocating, girl without you Now I'm a buzzin' like a big bumble bee Since you trained your pretty eyes upon me Taking no chances with you No stop and start, learnt it by heart Floating out there in the bay All those bad memories that I threw away Yes, it's true! I'm taking no chances with you

He's Got John Terry Eyes (Gavaghan) Mally's on the run again Keeps getting closer each time His ugly mug, staring out of the Echo With his John Terry Eyes They knew the rotter on sight 30 years of wandering and fumbling and squandering His folks don't care of his plight 'cause the fella ain't right! Mally's in the news again Looks like he's upping his game A trending topic, all the comments myopic Upon whom to apportion the blame blame blame Well they knew the fella weren't right All of those years long ago The council wrote the letter Not a single soul knows of his plight But the fella ain't right Mally's on the run again Keeps getting closer each time His ugly mug, staring out of the Echo With his John Terry Eyes Hurry up and put him right back Catch him please and throw away the keys Don't let him out of your sight 'Cause the fella ain't right!

Breakdown 03:13
Breakdown (Gavaghan) Open my eyes, recategorise Nothing to see here This lobsided smile, it took a while Just doesn't wanna be here Breakdown, shake down All my troubles away Better in the morning In the light of a brand new day It's not for me, this new reality Shutters down disappear And fall away, what can I say? I was never meant to be here Breakdown, take down All the nonsense I've spouted today Better in the morning In the lies of a brand new day Close my eyes, decompartmentalise Cast away the sorrow Find a place of comfort and grace Any moves that I can borrow? Breakdown, face down Other factors at play Better in the morning Under the eyes of a brand new day So on it goes And on it doesn't go For every fall a reason Bodily blows Ideas to and froing Another personal act of treason Breakdown, make down All my troubles away Better in the morning In the light of a brand new day

Bagsy Charles' Oyster (Gavaghan) I was broken, defeated, alone Till I called the only truth I've ever known Girl I can't believe how much I love you It's gonna be the death of me You greet me with your open arms And warm me with your endless charms Can't put into words how much I love you It's gonna be the death of me From my toes up to my finger tips When you kiss me with your ruby lips I'm lost in a lover's haze Through every passing fad and craze I can say with growing certainty Together we will always be Girl I can't believe how much I love you It's gonna be the death of me
