Track Name: Ghost Of Wales
I told the old folks in a bar far away,
The story of my stupid heart in one day,
Rock safe foundations no hammers no nails,
But all that I'm sure of is I'm set to fail.

They said you've been abducted by the ghost of Wales,
Did she tell you her stories?
Did she tell you her tales?
A silhouette so gracious with the wind in her sails,
That you'll fall in love with the ghost,
The Ghost of Wales.

When can I hold you like that every night?
Safe as my patience and warm as the light,
It seems when I text these days you can't reply,
Hot like an old stove or colder than ice.

She said under this vail ain't the Ghost of Wales,
Just a shadow of glory in an untold story,
That's why I call you for telling it for me,
I don't want no-one to know,
I'm the Ghost of Wales.

I told her I'd noticed a change in her eyes,
She told me she'd seen through the truth in my lies,
And all of this time I was still hypnotised,
By the same look she's given me thousands of times.

I said I don't care for no Ghost of Wales,
For I've seen the beauty shine out and straight through me,
Watch all the lifeboats as they're travelling to me,
To rescue your soul from the ghost,
The Ghost of Wales.

I said I don't care for no Ghost of Wales,
Just swallow your pride,
And go with the ride,
If God knows I've failed he'll know that I've tried,
He knows that I'll die by the ghost,
The ghost of Wales.

The Ghost of Wales (x4)
Track Name: Wherever I Go
Sitting here by the window pane,
Seventh day straight sat watching the rain,
Come down, down, down.

I got nothing to say,
I got nothing to do,
I wish I'da paid for a room with a view,
'Cos I don't see nothing here but a misery.

And I wanna see the world me and my guitar,
Sail across an ocean to catch my rocket ship to Mars,
And I wanna see the world in my own way,
There's nothing you can do,
There's nothing you can say, just know.

Wherever I go,
Whatever I do,
I'll wonder where I am in my relationship to you,
Whatever I win,
And whatever I lose,
I'll wanna come back home to you.

I ain't changed for four whole days,
I ain't shaved and my minds a state,
But I'm just doing a thing called Folk n Roll.

My hair is long and my nails are uncut,
Can you define please, "stuck in a rut"?
'Cos I just don't know where I'm gonna go.

But I wanna see the world me and my guitar,
Dream about you driving along the coastline of your heart,
And I wanna see the world in my own way,
There's nothing you can do,
There's nothing you can say, just know.

Wherever I go,
Whatever I do,
I'll wonder where I am in my relationship to you,
Whatever I win,
And whatever I lose,
I'll wanna come back home to you.

(repeated chorus)
Track Name: Need Me Too
Time is wasted I feel,
When you're not here.
It means so much to me my dear,
That smile from ear to ear.

Honey I don't know,
If I'm ready to show you how I feel.

'Cos I need you,
To need me too,
The way I need you.

Daydream believer and a carrot nose,
Don't stray where the wind don't blow,
Just let your head release your soul,
Give your heart full control.

And I'd be some crazy fool.
To let you slip through another rendezvous.

'Cos I need you,
To need me too,
The way I need you. (x4)
Track Name: Table For 2
I told you that I wouldn't do this,
That Holocene glow that once made my eyes glow,
Down by the lake.

And how could I be so foolish?
To change who I am,
The man that I've made since I've been away.

For I will await my chance,
And I'll do what I've got to do,
For I may never get my first dance,
So I'll wait by this table for two,
Just for you.

She told me that my eyes were gleaming,
But hers oh hers were streaming with tears,
Over a fear,
Of my youth.

She knows when I'm with her I'm dreaming,
But she tends just to focus on breathing the life of this love,
That she loathes.

For I will await my chance,
And I'll do what I've got to do,
For I may never get my first dance,
So I'll wait by this table for two,
Just for you. (x2)
