Track Name: Some Girls Wander By Mistake
You've a pretty smile my love.
It can take you anywhere, anywhere you want to go my love.
Go with me love.
You've a pretty smile my love, smile my love, smile my love.

What are you doing here my pretty one?
What are these clothes you're putting on?
I fear the battle you're preparing for will bring the devil to your door.
See if I didn't warn you.

Some girls only speak lies
Some girls got Jezebel eyes
Some girls know how to fake
But some girls wander by mistake.
Some girls…..
Oh….Uh-oh…
Track Name: I Wish
I can’t keep my eyes off ‘a you
and I can’t help myself, or what I do
I just gotta watch the way you move
And I just gotta touch, would ya like me to.

I,I,I,I,I,I,I…….

Wish all the other songs had been for you
And I wish that the sky was always blue
And that our hearts would never be that colour too
I wish, I wish

Now I surrender, at last I surrender
I never felt this good before standing at an open door
Now I surrender, at last I surrender
I never felt this safe before with my head in a blender

I,I,I,I,I,I,I…….

Wish all the other songs had been for you
And I wish that the sky was always blue
And that our hearts would never be that colour too
I wish

And I wish all the other times had been with you
And I wish that my wishes would all come true
For you and I and me and you
I wish, I wish

I,I,I,I,I,I,I…….

Wish all the other songs had been for you
And I wish that the sky was always blue
And that our hearts would never be that colour too
I wish

And I wish all the other times had been with you
And I wish all the songs I’ve sung were sung for you
If I’d known you then I would have wanted to
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish.
Track Name: Ancient Love
I have only known you for a little while now
And as you keep reminding me it's far too soon to tell
Yet girl it somehow seems that you've always been with me
And I've reason to believe that we have an ancient love

Instinctively we know our lines in this medieval play
Pity how our worried minds stumble in the way
You and me babe got an ancient love
You and me babe, we got ourselves an ancient love

I can only hold you for a moment now
You skip away on contradiction confusing me somehow
One foot in the future and one foot in the past
Make the best of both worlds now your compromise can't last

I wonder will you be there in my darkest hour
You're making me no promises so it's comforting to know
You and me babe got an ancient love
You and me babe got ourselves an ancient love
You and me babe got an ancient love
You and me babe, we got ourselves an ancient love

I promise you a future far better than the past
I promise you devotion and a love that's gonna last
I could choose my dark side too but it has a bitter end
I'd rather lead you to the light. Let's kiss and make amends.

Darling let me love you
Let me show you how
Don't keep your door on its safety chain when you know you wanna open it now. Yeah.

You and me babe got an ancient love
You and me babe got ourselves an ancient love
You and me babe got an ancient love
You and me babe, we got ourselves an ancient love
Track Name: Melody
I'm always running
I'm always hiding
But Melody finds me again
Of all her victims she loves me most
'cos Melody is my ghost
She is my past alive in my future
Melody please let me go

This is no normal spiritual haunting
Melody lives in my head
She's getting' older
She's getting wiser
Won't rest until I'm dead
And in the night she sinks her claws deeper
Melody, Melody, no

She got the key
She got just what it takes to play games in my head
She play me pictures of my mistakes
One by one in my head
I'm going down for the very last time under her vicious tread
She always dodges every plan that I lay
To leave Melody dead
Melody dead, Melody's dead
Of course, I said 'Aha', cos she's my ghost

She is the face of all my old lovers
Merged into one dreadful mask
She is the knife of a thousand betrayals
Dripping with blood from its shaft
She is the tears on the face of a baby
Melody, Melody, no

I'm gonna leave her here in a bottle
Lured with a candle and ring
I'm gonna walk on into the future
Free of her venomous sting
This exorcism is the final solution
Melody, Melody, go

She got the key
She got just what it takes to play games in my head
She play me pictures of my mistakes
One by one in my head
I'm going down for the very last time under her vicious tread
She always dodges every plan that I lay
To leave Melody dead
Melody dead, Melody's dead
Of course, I said 'Aha', cos she's my ghost
