Track Name: In The Book That I'm Reading
In The Book That I’m Reading

In the book that I’m reading
The pages are filled with lives I’ll not live
And each one reminds me of all of my failings
Of all that I take and all I can’t give

Out in Brockwell park
I walk around
But always end up
Right back where I started

I’d rather be
I’d rather be
I’d rather be

In the book that I’m reading
In the book that I’m reading

And I’m so sorry now
I wonder why
I only seem to
Let myself down

I’d rather be
I’d rather be
I’d rather be

In the book that I’m reading
In the book that I’m reading

In the book that I’m reading
I fill all the pages with things that I’ve found
A story I read in yesterday’s paper
The leaves from the park that I pick off the ground

I’m not lonely now
I’ve realised
Life would go on
Without me around

But all I need
All I need
All I need's

In the book that I’m reading
In the book that I’m reading
In the book that I’m reading
In the book that I’m reading
Track Name: In My Garden, Flowers Grow
In My Garden, Flowers Grow

My flowers grow
Outside, all woven
In the earth below
I say
Let the seasons have their way
Let autumn follow summer
For after winter, spring will come again

I loved a girl
She came in spring
I made my garden for her
I’ve stayed
I cannot go away
And now we’re in our winter
I bring her flowers every day
Track Name: Raymond's Perfect World
Raymond’s Perfect World

Raymond made just for himself
A tiny perfect world
Because if things aren’t quite perfect
It’s no good for Raymond’s nerves

Raymond dresses smartly
He’s not happy if he’s not
His wardrobe’s full of pastel shirts
And matching pastel socks

All the while, a thought is gnawing
It’s all a little overwhelming
He’s ok though

Raymond’s perfect world!
Raymond’s perfect world!

And inside Raymond’s little house
Clocks tick before they tock
If he hears one tocking first
He has to make it stop

All the while, a thought is gnawing
It’s all a little overwhelming
He’s ok though
Raymond is ok though
Raymond is ok though
Raymond is ok though
Raymond is ok though

Raymond invents routines so he can get along
It helps him to forget that everything is wrong

Raymond’s perfect world!
Track Name: Margate Sands
Margate Sands

I went out walking
Across Margate Sands
I walked until the sea met with the land

And while I was walking
I started thinking of all the things
I’d done, walking alone on Margate Sands

I thought about Christine
Of the whole carry on
Of things long past, of where the time’s all gone

Now I’m old and I’m tired
I’m sick and half lame
I wonder if I should see her again

The sea comes in
And out again
I tell myself
That nothing’s changed
