Written by Ellis-Bextor, Esty, Aller

Take me home, take me home
I know another place to be
Take me home, take me home
You deserve a girl like me
Come on I know somewhere
You can unwind
We can just disappear
Now's the time
Take me home, take me home
Only fair I get my way
Take me home, take me home
Oh it's going to happen anyway
I know what's good for you
Don't pass me by
I will look after you
You'll be fine
I'm in heaven I'll show you heaven it's so much heaven
let's make a move
lets leave this world behind
I know you approve by the look in your eyes
I'm in heaven I'll show you heaven It's so much heaven
take me home take me home
I will show you where to walk
take me home take me home
baby let the people talk
we'll get away from here
I'm reading your mind
We can just disappear
now's the time
I'm in heaven, I'll show you heaven take me home
Oh, take me home
Oh, take me home
In this moment one night with you
all alone with nothing to loose
let's make a move
let's leave this world behind
I know you approve by the look in your eyes
I'm in heaven I'll show you heaven it's so much heaven
Take me home, take me home
Now's the time to follow me
take me home
come and live what ought to be
take me home take me home

Written by Ellis-Bextor, Boyd, Newell

I'm looking out
I'm looking in
I'm turning on and giving in
I'm lying low
I'm sinking
I'm going undercover
I'm gonna be your lover. lover
I'm getting up
I'm getting down
I want to move
I've come around
Look in my eyes
I want you
I'm going undercover
I'm gonna be your lover
I'm going undercover I'm gonna be your lover, lover, lover
It's everyday
It's every night
it never sleeps it's always right
it overtakes
it's got me
I'm going undercover I'm gonna be your lover

. . .


Written by Ellis-Bextor, Hillier, James

What do you want from me
I stand before you no attempt to leave
I'm too tired to disagree
I stand before you no chance I'll believe this warning
Oh do you know
I would have done anything for you
Take this chance I won't repeat this
I can do anything that's put beside of you
And I can move any mountains that you make
I'll lift you up and my back will never break
And I can move this mountain
Come and take the rest of me
I never thought I wouldn't want you near
This is all I'll ever be
I understand you
Look around to see this dawning
Oh, does it show
I wanted to catch you falling
Oh, do you know
I would have done anything for you
Take this chance I won't repeat this
I can do anything that's put beside of you
And I can move any mountains that you make
I'll lift you up and my back will never break
And I can move this mountain

It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down
Oh, I know I know I know I know I know I know
About your kind
And so and so and so and so and so
I'll have to play
If you think you're getting away
I will prove you wrong
I'll take you all the way
Boy, just come along
Hear me when I say
Hey, It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down
Oh I know I know I know I know I know I know
About your kind
And so and so and so and so and so and so
You'll just have to pray
Don't think you'll get away
I will prove you wrong
I'll lead you all astray
Stay another song
I'll blow you all away
Hey, It's murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
DJ, gonna turn this house around somehow
Murder on the dancefloor
But you better not kill the groove
Hey, hey
Murder on the dancefloor
But you better not steal the moves
Dj, gonna burn this goddamn house right down

I'm only offering you love tonight 
I'm only offering you this for life 
I'm only answering your call tonight 
I'm only answering your lust for life 
Believe me, you're the only one 
Believe me, you're the only one 
Sparkle in my mind 
Sparkle in my mind 
It's always every single thing to me 
It's always every single fantasy 
It's always inescapable to me 
It's always inescapable to see 
Believe me, you're the only one 
Believe me, you're the only one 
Sparkle in my mind 
Sparkle in my mind

Written by Ellis Bextor, Boyd, Newell

I've been talking to myself again 
Not communicating anything 
It's a never ending fallacy 
That you have always been so good to me 
When I'm trying to explain it all 
You are making me uncomfortable 
Take a little piece of honesty 
And be the man you always promised me 
I said that I would never leave 
But now I cannot breathe 
I said that I would let you know 
But I'm not letting go 
I've tried to make you understand 
Now I've done all I can 
It's time to make my final move 
Cos I'm not happy 
I've been talking to myself again 
Making sure that I am listening 
I'm developing an attitude 
It pushes me towards my solitude 
I said that I would never leave 
But now I cannot breathe 
I said that I would let you know 
But I'm not letting go 
I've tried to make you understand 
Now I've done all I can 
It's time to make my final move 
Cos I'm not happy 
I never thought it could happen 
I never thought it could be 
I never wanted to be here 
I never wanted to see 
your love will never let me down

. . .


Written by Ellis-Bextor, Danvers, Rockstar

Hold me down 
So I don't leap onto the wall 
With the fever of it all 
That would encourage mayhem 
They're quite a rowdy crowd, do you think? 
And I'm going to the peak of something 
Lovely feeling, slippy breathing 
Tell me how to break the news 
There's no way that I can loose my love and it's taken over me 
I feel as if this love could last forever 
As if my luck and hope have found each other 
I feel as if I should have known, together 
We make good sense to me and I believe. 
Who just said 
Some girls don't get a second chance 
When I've toyed and I've romanced 
I'm on the edge of something 
Inner soothing, man-approving 
Tell me how to take the news 
There's no way that I can loose my love and it's taken over me

. . .


Written by Ellis-Bextor, Boyd, Newell

Black and gold 
A safe combination 
Heaviness sets the seed for the next generation 
You say we're so alike 
Well, I wouldn't want to live 
On the difference 
No, I wouldn't want to live 
On the difference 
Sitting down at 10,000 feet 
Nothing's artificial 
It shouldn't be a word 
I live on my dreams 
Well, I'd never do anything to make them happen 
No, I'd never do anything to make them happen 
Suddenly I'm forced to think and make the right decision 
I'm on the brink 
You've put me in a position 
I'll tell you what 
I'll give you me 
If you leave the others alone 
Canvas cracks 
Face unrecognisable 
Eyes have a stony gaze 
Moving's not advisable 
I know who you are so, I don't feel the need to make conversation 
No, I don't feel the need to make conversation 
Suddenly I'm forced to think and make the right decision 
I'm on the brink 
You've put me in a position 
I'll tell you what 
I'll give you me 
if you leave the others alone 
Leave the others alone

. . .


Written by Ellis-Bextor, Rez

Take this down 
Turn it around 
I am water underneath a bridge 
So? What do I know? 
Getting here must be a privilege 
Should say something meaningful 
If at all 
Just to fill the air 
Or, believe I adore you 
Love you if I dare 
By chance 
When I turn out the light 
I'm finding the right line 
By chance 
I could put this to right not in the rest of this lifetime 
Let it slide 
Always inside 
Isn't worth the indecision I hide 
So, nowhere to go 
Stimulating no illusion 
I should say something pivotal 
Belittle 
How you let me down 
Or, believe I adore you 
Love me if you dare 
By chance 
When I turn out the light 
I'm finding the right line 
By chance 
I could put this to right 
Not in the rest of this lifetime no, no 
Look at you going places 
See two faces 
I know which to trace 
I would be holding my breath but things will stay the same won't they 
Oh, I know

. . .


Written by Ellis-Bextor, Boyd, Newell

Read my lips 
I don't want to 
Get involved with 
Relativity 
Take my time 
Use it wisely 
You're controlling 
Certain gravities 
You're coming around 
So late in the day 
I've been here before 
I know what to say 
You're moving the ground 
You're making me feel as if the universe is you 
Tell yourself 
You can't have me 
I rely on 
Probability

. . .


Written by R.Hall/Ellis-Bextor

Turn me down 
To the ground 
I want to feel the coolness on my face 
Lie me down 
Show me how 
I can begin to hold you endlessly 
I don't sleep 
So I don't dream of leaving 
And when I wake I face the night 
And I don't speak 
I listen to the breathing 
I sometimes think I hear my fate 
So is it any wonder 
That I'm finding someone in this place here next to me 
And is it any wonder 
That we found each other 
I've found another who meets the same 
Is it any wonder 
Don't explain by it's name 
We write our words forever in the space 
Who could say 
Chance again 
Chooses to bring together you and me 
Now I don't sleep so I don't dream of leaving 
I lie awake and face the night 
I lie awake and dream of you 
So is it any wonder 
that I'm finding someone in this place here next to me 
And is it and wonder that you made it here 
We found another who meets the same 
And is it any wonder that I'm finding someone in this place here next to me 
Is it any wonder 
that we found each other 
We found another who meets the same

I know what you're thinking 
It's all got to go 
At times driven along by the meaning 
I need colours me to fade 
Everything falls into place 
Everything falls in to favour 
Everything falls into place 
And then we all go mad 
and throw it away 
We all go mad and throw it away 
I see what you're doing' 
Makes sense after all 
my hearts telling me I'm not mistaken 
It feels better than I can believe 
Everything falls into place 
Everything falls into favour 
everything falls into place 
And then we all go mad and throw it away 
We all go mad and throw it away 
We all go mad and we throw it away 
I said we all go mad and throw it away
