Track Name: Kirsty
Kirsty'd tear her nails right down your back
Like a blackboard scraping
Covered high walls with NME and blu-tack
Put a Lou Reed tape in
Drown out the sounds of everyday
Headphones handy
Block barbed insults, fly her way
Like poisoned candy

Kirsty, pale freckled and small
When will you screw them all?

Take their armour
Like tracing paper
Eat their insults
Save them for later

Kirsty shone when no-one else was around
Sod's law in motion
Melodies like diamonds out of her mouth
Pure emotion
Kirsty paints her jeans with dye from a jar
She's an indie sweetheart
Given up on fitting in with the ya's
She turns street smart

Kirsty, pale freckled and small
When will you screw them all?

Take their armour
Like tracing paper
Eat their insults
Save them for later
Track Name: Easy Speak
Tell me your number
Tell me again
The music's too loud, I can't hear anything

We can be lovers
We can be friends
The possibilities won't end

You jump into the taxi queue
And as you're on your way
I get a look of innocence
I don't know what to say

You gave me a sense of it, now go

Out at the weekend
Illusion is bare
You're drunken and loud, can't take you anywhere

Alone in a nightclub
You've found other friends
I wonder when it's gonna end

You crash into the disco ball
It's all a big mistake
Then everybody else's fault
It's more than I can take

You gave me a look of innocence I rarely see
Outside of Hollywood
Your eyes on me
I never thought of it that way

And see that all I need
Is you to lay it down in easy speak
A statement of intent
Your eyes on me
I never thought of it that way

You crash into the disco ball
It's all a big mistake
Then everybody else's fault
It's more than I can take
