Track Name: Perfect Girl
Please look at me
What do you see
If you ever try to find me
You'll find me

Waiting for you
'Cause you want me to
Do you know I'll follow blindly
Be kind to me

Ch
I'll be the perfect girl
The centre of your world

I hang round your class
Hoping you'll ask me
Anything just to hear you
To be near you

When I catch your eye
You give me a smile
That tell me one day that maybe
Just maybe

Ch
I'll be the perfect girl
The centre of your world
I'll be the perfect girl of your dreams
I'm all that I seem 'cause I
Love you honestly I love you honestly

I can't believe you're talking to me
and I find myself just smiling
Can't stop smiling

Would I like to go with you to a show
Or just for a walk or something
I'm thinking

Ch
I'll be the perfect girl
The centre of your world
I'll be the perfect girl of your dreams
I'm all that I seem
And I really mean that I

Love you honestly I love you honestly
Track Name: All I Want
All I want is a nice little ordinary house by the sea
And a cat that will follow me to
Sit on my lap and just enjoy the view

All I want is a mind that's extraordinary
Real deep thoughts that could do something for me
I'll get wise and write a book or two

I want to know that I am not alone
I want to know that I am not alone

All I want is a ride that will carry me to
Someone who one day will want to marry me
We'll spend our time swapping points of view

All I want is a voice that can be heard
And people all around can hear every word
And find a band that's playing something new

I want to know that I am not alone
I want to know that I am not alone

Tell me honestly
Something i can't see
Am I getting anywhere

All I want is a life that's uncompromising
Finding something new everyday surprising
I won't take for granted what I've found

Tell me honestly
Something i can't see
Am I getting anywhere

All I want, all I want is you
All I want, all I want is you
All I want is you and a house
All I want is you and a cat
Track Name: Little Strange
You don't make a lot of noise
Playing with the big boys can't be easy
Then when everyone has gone you sing a little song
So bright and breezy
I know everyone belongs to someone that they really love so baby
Take me in you arms
Take me in your arms
I know that

You and me are both the same
We are just a little strange

I'm not hanging with the girls
that girly thing really makes me queasy
Give me a movie and a beer
A comfortable chair that's nice and easy
Make me another cup of tea
Come and sit with me I won't be needy
Take me in your arms
Take me in your arms

You and me are both the same
We are just a little strange

So come with me me
I'll make you happy
So come with me

I know everyone is odd
Just give a little nod we have to turn out
We're just two funny people
Take a leap of faith and hope it works out
I've got you for a lifetime
Drink a lot of wine and still you want to
Take me in your arms
Take me in your arms

You and me are both the same
We are just a little strange

You for me and me for you
Just the way we wanted to
Me for you and you for me
I love you so easily
Track Name: I'm The Best Thing
I'm the best thing that happened to you
I can came along when you needed me to
You weren't looking for somebody new
I'm the best thing that happened to you

I've got it all you couldn't find more
It's me who you want and who you adore
I've got the time if you've got it too
I'm the best thing that happened to you

Bridge
I can be silly and I can be fun
I can be dark when you need
I can sit still and you should see me run
I'm a band-aid when you start to bleed

I've got my faults and you got your flaws
But I don't keep count and you don't take score
I've gotta say you're one of the few
I'm the best thing that happened to you

Bridge
I can be funny and I can be blue
I can turn cartwheels and fall
I can do anything you want me to
I can do any old thing at all

I can be anything I want to be
'Cause you're the best thing that happened to me
You know every word that i say is true
I'm the best thing that happened to you
I'm the best thing that happened to you
I'm the best thing that happened to you
