o Hotel Come Reflect

o The high heels in the house next door

o Twins? Perhaps.

o Down on his knees

o 'Til these eyes cease to see, I am yours

o Chasing skirt

o There was a young woman who lived in a shoe

o Bed of stone

o Nibble, squeeze an’ bite

o Easy to deceive

o 'Land ahoy'

o Message to the fly

o 'Click’

o Living and forgiving

o You’re still the one

o Destination heaven

o Here comes the rain

o The last time

o The keys to Heaven's door

o Heart to let

o The night I fell in love with you

o Broken glass

o Legs have lights?

o Amazing Place

o Put a kiss on your pillow

o A worthwhile part to play

o A message from the future

o Lackadaisical

o The girl that I love

o Glad that we met

o See you around

o Pour me a dream

What I want, I gotta have.

Four side-by-side, stock quadrajet,

Goes nought to sixty, seven secs,

I had to have it, speed’s my fad,

An’ what I want, I gotta have.


Sweet sugartime, sidewalk on fire,

I looked, I winked, we shared a smile,

But then she stopped, come walkin’ back,

Cause what I want, I gotta have.


Battery flat, my watch has stopped,

Right outside a Rolex shop,

Checked my wedge, phoned the bank,

Cause want I want, I gotta have.


Blue suit, waistcoat, watch and chain,

Bespoke lining, gold la-mé

Bag it up, I’ll pay by cash,

Cause what I want, I gotta have.


Well, that’s about the size of it,

I have to have what makes me tick,

There’s no excuse, beyond the fact,

That what I want, I gotta have.
