Lyrics

Man In My Pocket

Written By: Natalie Gauci/Marc Nelkin/Alex James/David Gorman

I gave you love, in the first degree
No question how i felt gave you priority
New Complications
Is my card dealt. My doctor said you were too bad for my health
you started out using my car
taking this and that
Turned into a one way street no i cant go for that i cant go for that

Man in my pocket and his tuggin on me
Got his hands in my pocket and his riding for free
I dont really wanna talk about it
I dont really wanna work it out
Coz it is what it is yes it is what it is
I can do without you in my pocket

You maxed my card through off track
so call security you never watched my back
you were my dream maker my heart breaker and ooh i wanted you
now i cant recognise what i saw in that face when we kissed for the first time

You started out using my card and taking this and that
now we're heading down a dead end street no i cant go for that i cant go for that

Man in my pocket and his tugging on me
got his hand in my pocket and his riding for free
i dont even wanna talk about it i dont even wanna work it out
coz it is what it is yes it is what it is i can do with out you

i know it's a give and take world and it's time to take back what's mine
coz it is what it is what it is
I know when your packing your bag everything that's inside is mine

and i cant go for that..

If I Could Change One Thing

Written By: Natalie Gauci/Shasha Terrefe/James Bryon

I"ve been thinkin bout where we left off
and the way you looked when i said goodbye
coz when you hold me you dont let me go
so i left before i had to see you cry
i walked and didnt look back
i can still feel your shadow breathing
It's heavy on my shoulders but i still carry on

if i could change one thing
it would be for you to see
that the love we have wont break
it will never be what you dreamed that it would be
it doesnt mean that it cant be ok

The tention is so obvious
With my suitcase packed i'm ready to fly
and i wish you wouldn't second guess
everything that i've decided in my life

we already know it hurts us both there no point in fighting
it's heavy on my shoulders but i still carry on

if i could change one thing it would be for you to see that the love we have wont break
it will never be what you dreamed that would be it doesnt mean that it cant be ok

give me something to lean
this time i'm gonna be the one
i know you wanna be happy
but baby so do i

Grow Up

Written By: Natalie Gauci

I've woken up in disarray and i feel dizzy
and my body's feeling numb and i'm not moving
i went to see my doctor yes but she just said i needed rest
so i just went back to bed

Now i'm thinkin way too much about the future and i'm crossing all these paths i've been avoiding and i'm struggling just to wake up in the morning

coz i dont wanna grow up, wanna grow up wanna grow up.
i dont wanna grow up wanna grow up.. i dont wanna grow up.

i'm feeling further away from the face that's in the mirror and i feel like i am falling
i tried to shake off all the dust that i've consumed from wasting time and winning faith and making money

it doesnt matter if my porr jeans are all tattered but i know that i'm just holding on to what i feel is gone.

coz i dont wanna grow up wanna grow up wanna grow up. x2

yes i can feel love and i can feel him and i can be anything that i wanna be. yes i'm overjoyed i'm not being descreet i wanna live my life the way i do and show you i'm not feeling blue no more

coz i dont wanna grow up..

Freaky

Written By: Natalie Gauci/Leah Haywood/Dan James/Shelley Pyken

Yeah baby you're fresh out the box
and we fit even though everyone thought not
when i think of it you go ahead and say it
when i dream of it you go ahead and make it
wooh it suits me
wooh dont even need to think about it

Baby your kinda freaky
but i like it
can help that i like it like it
Baby your kinda freaky
cant help that i like it like it

My friends think your so fricken metro
dont gotta prove that your hetro
i like how you move to electro
put on your high tops and lets go
spin me around like i'm dizzy
when you look like that i wanna get busy
together i feel so connected
totally so unexpected so check it

wooh it suits me woooh dont even need to think about it

Baby you're kinda freaky
but i like it cant help that i like it like it
Baby you're kinda freaky cant help that i like like it

so left of centre
but so right for me
your the adventure that i'm discovering
it didnt take too long to know that we belong together

I'm Ready

Written By: Natalie Gauci

I Don't need a man to interfere with my life.
You gotta understand, i'm about to face the world.
it's so clear to me how it should be. But i'm better off staying the hell away from boys like you.
But now you've got me thinking.
Bout things i never knew i could think about.
why am i stuck like glue to you?

you're looking, so good i can't stop looking.
i got my eye on you tonight
i want a taste, i want some messy conversation.

but i dont comprehend the situation.
This is not what i planned, no.
I've already gotten close, too close
Dont touch me that way.

I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love

so come over here
and touch me over there.
My mind's made up and baby i dont care.
You got what i need and you can please me any way and any time you like.

I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love
i think i'm ready to love
I think i'm ready to love

i'm ready
I"m ready
I'm ready
I'm ready
