Track Name: LAST FISH IN THE SEA.
See the shop-girl leaving Primark
Every Monday through to Saturday
He'll be waiting by the doorway
Every Monday through to Saturday
See the shop-girl working in Primark
Keeps the underwear straight on the shelves
But she's dreaming of chasing aliens
Watched the X-Files when she was so young

And he treats her special
Like she is the only one

Like she is the last fish in the sea
Don't let her get away

See the shop girl leaving Primark
Takes the escalator to the ground floor
He is waiting
They walk the pavements
Dodging raindrops between the buildings
She sees the cars go
She sees the airoplane
Says this is not completely natural
Thinks of faces of the customers
Says we are the only aliens here

And he treats her special
Like she is the only one
Like she is the last fish in the sea

Don't let her get away
Track Name: God Put The Moon In The Sky.
God put the moon in the sky far above the waves
And let it spill-out on the water
Just like some painter romantic
God put the truth in disguise
Hid it in the day
To see it only if you wondered
Which way the track to homeland is

Search your pockets for the plans and tickets
But they don't get you home again
Past the rocks and past the rip-tide
All along the shores round here

But there's a chance that
You can get back
To your family
They are calling

God put the moon in..............

Specks of light from the batteries
Hidden in the hats of the anglers
Will tempt the codling from the darkness
But leave you trapped in shoes of danger

But there's a chance that
you can get back
To your family
They are calling

God put the moon in the sky
Far above the waves
And let it spill out on the water
Just like some painter romantic
God put the moon in the sky
And hid it in the days
To see it only if you wondered
Which way the track to homeland is

God put the moon in the sky..........
Track Name: Hippie Brigitte
She's just an odd sock she will be your tutor
Keeps some old rock near a new computer
Says the world is trying to pollute her
Thinks a two -day job would really suit her

Laughs with you for a while -Hippie Brigitte
Talks to you from the waves - Hippie Brigitte
Hands you the spy -glass - Hippie Brigitte
Speaks to you from the day -Hippie Brigitte

She'll light the candles put the stones on your back
Practice Taichi at the edge of your track
Stick some words of glue on spots where you cracked
Before she goes to the next stop on her map

Laughs with you for a while -Hippie Brigitte
Talks to you from the waves - Hippie Brigitte
Hands you the spy -glass - Hippie Brigitte
Speaks to you from the day -Hippie Brigitte

You're just one of the flowers she goes to
It's just one of those things you get used to

Show me the way back to the moment -Hippie Brigitte
Track Name: Wherever It Collides With You.
The escalator going up
The top deck of a crowded bus
The polished cabinets in the history museum
In the queue at the paper shop
Don't let your searching stop
Wherever it collides with you

I'll say a prayer that you will find love
Beyond the walls of this northern city
Track Name: Best Boots.
Put on your Best boots
Put on your Best Shirt
I'll meet you in the field when it's Christmas
Georgie's on my team so he can't be on your team
I'll meet you in the field when it's Christmas
There'll be plenty of time at the 3 o''clock kick-off
To watch the crazed dance at his feet
There'll be plenty of time
To pretend you.re the Best
With twelve other kids down our street

When you going to buy me George Best boots
George Best Boots for Christmas

Georgie said giving-up booze and the women
Was the worst twenty minutes in his life
But there's no mistaking
The pain it's creating
When it's tearing the soul out of your life.
There'll be plenty of time at the 3 o'clock kick off
To watch the crazed dance at his feet
There'll be plenty of time
To pretend you're the Best
With twelve other kids down our street

When you going to buy me
George Best boots
George Best boots for Christmas
