Track Name: Headline
Headline - K.Lush/M.Roberts

I was tired of seeing lovers
In the papers the big headlines
Hearts were kind, but endings cold
I’ve had my share, of feeling alone

You make me feel so wonderful
You make me feel so whole
Your love has been the only thing
That keeps me wanting more

Pre - Chorus
Don’t know if I’m up or down
Can’t keep my feet on the ground

Chorus
You’re so high, nothin’ brings you down
You’re dirty but you clean up nice
Your no star but in my mind you’re the big headline

Some people want it all in lights
Think only money can satisfy
All I ever wanted was you
To walk though that door & know it’s for good

You make me feel so wonderful
You make me feel so whole
Your love has been the only thing
That keeps me wanting more

Pre - Chorus
Don’t know if I’m up or down
Can’t keep my feet on the ground

Chorus
You’re so high, nothin’ brings you down
You’re dirty but you clean up nice
Your no star but in my mind you’re the big headline

Bridge:
Looking back I was a scene playing over - & over
Falling through the same cracks like I was broken
I had to step off the map
When there’s just so much doubt, staring back
All that time I thought I was wrong
But there’s so much love since you came along

Chorus
You’re so high, nothin’ brings you down
You’re dirty but you clean up nice
Your no star but in my mind you’re the big headline
Track Name: If You Don't Like It
If You Don’t Like It
(Kate Lush & Matt Roberts)

I can’t get it right
When I’m always wrong
I can’t even fight
Cause you’re way too strong
There’s nothing like
Your battle line
Don’t test your metal on me
All the time

Damned if I do
Damned if I don’t
So Now I will
Even if you won’t
I’ve grown backbone
I’ve got spirit
I need positive intervention
I’m not gonna give in

Chorus
My heart it used to be free
You been pulling me down you don’t care for me
My resolution for love
Gonna shake it up

Now I’ve cooked up a stew
And got the goods on you
Some sweet advice
From some friends of mine
Cause I can’t go on
Cause it ain’t going on
So you gonna have to choose
What cha gonna do? ☺

Chorus
My heart it used to be free
You been pulling me down you don’t care for me
My resolution for love
Gonna shake it up

Chant x 2
If You Don’t Like It
You don’t have to stay
If you don’t like it
Just get on your way

Chorus
My heart it used to be free
You been pulling me down you don’t care for me
My resolution for love
Gonna shake it up

My heart, it used to be free,
My love, don’t care for me , my resolution for love

(If you Don’t like it) - If You Don’t Like It - You don’t have to stay
(If you Don’t like it) If you don’t like it - Just get on your way

Track Name: Jackson
Jackson
By: Kate Lush

Bar tender looks sideways at me
I don’t care what could be the worst thing?
Down by the river, beats beating,
Tanqueray numb swanning like a sinner

180 degrees I’m spinning
Sky on the river, world at my fingers
Money in his pocked, sweet nothings
Living on lovin’ (that something)

Chorus:
And Oh! I’m the only one that he sees, yeah
Time stand still while the world sleeps, yeah
It might be nothing or the start of something
I can’t get enough, Of Jackson

Woa oh oh h Woah oh ho ho
Woa oh oh h Woah oh ho ho

2 am sweet Summer sweat
I don’t know when I ever felt
So good, deeper than the river
Dive so deep, floating like a feather

Waving his keys in the air
Soaked to our skin but we don’t care
Change down the track, the cars packed
Sun ain’t ready, and I’m so ready to roll

Chorus:
And Oh! I’m the only one that he sees, yeah
Time stand still while the world sleeps, yeah
It might be nothing or the start of something
I can’t get enough, Of Jackson

Woa oh oh h Woah oh ho ho
Woa oh oh h Woah oh ho ho



Bridge:
20 to life now my time has come
I Rise to the top, and I feel the sun
The ones who get what they want …. Don’t give up

Chorus: x 2
And Oh! I’m the only one that he sees, yeah
Time stand still while the world sleeps, yeah
It might be nothing or the start of something
I can’t get enough, Of Jackson

Woa oh oh h Woah oh ho ho
Woa oh oh h Woah oh ho ho
Track Name: Goodbye To The Rain
Goodbye To The Rain
Written By: Kate Lush

I unpacked my bag, a little unsure
Even though it was coming doesn’t help at all
Too little too late, for the tears to fall
But it rains so hard now I close the door

Pre-Chorus
We never had a song of our own
Never told me I was the one
Never shared a dream to hang our hopes
So Maybe you won’t miss me, when I’m gone

Chorus
So complicated, until it’s not
Hurts so bad, & takes so much
I’ve disappointed, held all the blame
Stood in the shadow & walked away Saying
Goodbuy Goodbuy, Goodbuy to the rain

I lie awake, my fears come out like stars
I’d think about leaving, And I’d fall apart
Out of the dark, I hope I find a way
And help these clouds to roll away

Pre-Chorus
We never had a song of our own
Never told me I was the one
Never shared a dream to hang our hopes
So Maybe you won’t miss me, when I’m gone

Chorus
So complicated, until it’s not
Hurts so bad, & takes so much
I’ve disappointed, held all the blame
Stood in the shadow & walked away Saying
Goodbuy Goodbuy, Goodbuy to the rain

SOLO

Track Name: Rock That Won't Roll
Rock That Won’t Roll
Written by: Kate Lush / Matt Roberts

You rocked all night, always the rebel
Out on the road, foot on the pedal
The kind of leaver, I loved so well
Always ending up on the highway

I’ve seen the worst, of all the fighters
I think it’s time, I lived a good life
This hard ways, been the only way
Gotta lose it all to make a change

I need a place for my heart
One that won’t break apart

Chorus:
I want a rock, that wont roll
Arms that won’t let me fall
Don’t need diamonds or a ring of gold
I want a rock that ain’t gonna roll

You’d wear those shades, like a rock star
Everyth you’d say, was like a billboard
I think it’s crazy but we made it back
Maybe love can change the man

And as you leave me for tonight
I need to know, that the morning light’s
Gonna bring you home, and I won’t wake alone
Then you’ll see me make you my life

I need a place for my heart
One that won’t break apart

Chorus:
I want a rock, that wont roll
Arms that won’t let me fall
Don’t need diamonds or a ring of gold
I want a rock that ain’t gonna roll

Bridge
I wanna make this our home, I wanna stay by your side
I wanna hear you say the same, I wanna give you - a chance to change

I need a place for my heart
One that won’t break apart
I’ve got the strength to make it
Tell me you’ve got the heart

2 x Chorus:
I want a rock, that wont roll
Arms that won’t let me fall
Don’t need diamonds or a ring of gold
I want a rock that ain’t gonna roll
Track Name: Weakness
Weakness
Written by: Kate Lush / Matt Roberts

There’s bridges I’ve had to burn
I’ve dared to shut your mouth
I’ve dared to cut & run
Can you see you just can’t tie me down
But maybe you can
I’ve always had a weakness
For the guitar in your hands

You can’t hold the wild & free
I wanna be in heavens hurricane
Never played a song too long
Never had anyone to play along
But maybe you can
I’ve always had a weakness
For the guitar in your hands

Chorus:
Maybe you’ll want to see me
And maybe I’d let you in
But I will not be broken
Don’t try to win
Don’t be weak
What I need
Is a man who plays like that

SOLO

Chorus:
Maybe you’ll want to see me
And maybe I’d let you in
But I will not be broken
Don’t try to win
Don’t be weak
What I need
Is a man who plays like that

Rather jump off the deep end
Than play a safe & shallow part
Like War & Peace in the movies
Can’t save the up’s & downs in my life
But maybe you can
I’ve always had a weakness
I’ve always had a weakness
I’ve always had a weakness
For the man with the guitar
Track Name: You Already Knew
You already knew
Written By: Matt Roberts & Kate Lush

Been fooled once, never twice
You’re Holding back, because she lied
You’re scared, You worry I might
Don’t you know I’m yours & you are mine

I want you, I think you already knew

You make excuses, keep stopping by
Pretending I wasn’t on your mind
You been fishing, for what’s going on
It’s alright, I want what you want

I want you, I think you already knew
I want you, I think you already knew

Bridge:
I’ve been waiting for you to come along……
You only had to say my name
to start a fire with how I feel
And I don’t know why it’s obvious
But it’s how you are with me
The whole world could see the difference,
Between you & me

Solo

The other night, when they’d all gone
You didn’t turn away when you got caught
No standing back, I wanted that
There was this moment in the silence

I want you, I think you already knew
I want you, I think you already knew

Bridge:
I’ve been waiting for you to come along……
You only had to say my name
to start a fire with how I feel
And I don’t know why it’s obvious
But it’s how you are with me
The whole world could see the difference,
Between you & me

I want you, I think you already knew
I want you, I think you already knew
I want you….
Track Name: Fall Down Seven Times
Fall down 7 Times (Stand Up 8)
Written by: Kate Lush

Now the party’s all done
You know I wait, you know my love
Can make you so high - There’s nothing I
Wouldn’t do but you’re making me crazy

Pre Chorus:
It’s so hard, you don’t know how long it takes
To heal my heart whenever you break it
Make me feel so attached
Stealing moments that could never last

Chorus
Ooh hoo what’s the matter with you
Ooh hoo with your gun you shoot shoot shoot
Ooh hoo You Kiss me with a promise you’ll break

I fall down 7 times & stand up 8
I fall down 7 times & stand up 8

As we sit & watch the sun go down
I’m in love with you, I’m such a fool
Who gives you the rope to come & go
I’m losing myself, feeling out of control

Pre Chorus
It’s so hard, you don’t know how long it takes
To heal my heart whenever you break it
Made me feel so attached
Stealing moments that could never last




Chorus
Ooh hoo what’s the matter with you
Ooh hoo with your gun you shoot shoot shoot
Ooh hoo You Kiss me with a promise you’ll break

I fall down 7 times & stand up 8
I fall down 7 times & stand up 8

I see you’re your eyes, in the morning sun
I see that I can’t make you, be mine
It all could have been so easy
You somehow made me believe it

Chorus
Ooh hoo what’s the matter with you
Ooh hoo with your gun you shoot shoot shoot
Ooh hoo You Kiss me with a promise you’ll break

I fall down 7 times & stand up 8
I fall down 7 times & stand up 8
Track Name: One Heart To Break
One Heart To Break
Lush/Wilson (2018)

Verse 1
This is my house, with your face in his dreams
This is my world, you don’t know what he means to me
On the scene, looking good and I can’t compete
I see, without you he can’t breath

Pre Chorus
So if you don’t love him
You could have anybody
If he’s only somebody
Then leave him be

Chorus
You don’t know how it feels
To have one heart to break - One love to save,
You don’t know how it feels
To have one heart to break

Verse 2
This one night, I won’t cry, I’ll fight cause he’s mine
This is my world, I wont say good bye
I can’t face, another day, another life
Wanna now forget you, like the day that’s just gone by

Pre Chorus
So if you don’t love him
When You could have anybody
If he’s only somebody
Then leave him be

Chorus
You don’t know how it feels
To have one heart to break - One love to save,
You don’t know how it feels
To have one heart to break - One love to save,
One man that’s mine
One love for life
You don’t know how it feels
With One heart to break

Bridge:
Spin around & let it go
I spent too much time alone & know
Something things are worth fighting for
Close the door & turn away
You know it’s better off this way
This one thing I’ll be fighting for


Chorus
You don’t know how it feels
To have one heart to break - One love to save,
You don’t know how it feels
To have one heart to break - One love to save,
One man that’s mine
One love for life
You don’t know how it feels
With One heart to break
Track Name: How Will I Hold Out
How Will I Hold Out
Written by: Kate Lush

Verse 1
Your something special
You turn my head
I’m tangled in something I
Can’t untwist

Oh you laugh at me & stand too close
You make me nervous, but I don’t want to go

Chorus
Your so hard to resist
I’m tryin’ not to slip
You got this nuclear power
How will I hold out

With my defenses down
Without my feet on the ground
You keep on coming around
How will I hold out?

Verse 2
You tell me your falling
But It’s way too soon
I’ve had too many fall out’s
To be dangling

Oh you laugh at me & stand too close
You make me nervous, but I don’t want to go

Chorus
Your so hard to resist
I’m tryin’ not to slip
You got this nuclear power
How will I hold out

With my defenses down
Without my feet on the ground
You keep on coming around
How will I hold out?


Bridge
Don’t stop, don’t stop, what you’re doing now
I wont, I wont stop you
Love does Love does what it’s gonna
No matter No matter what I do

Choruses
Your so hard to resist
I’m tryin’ not to slip
You got this nuclear power
How will I hold out

With my defenses down
Without my feet on the ground
You keep on coming around
How will I hold out
Track Name: Sanctuary
Sanctuary
Kate Lush & Matt Roberts

High rise to the mountain top
Train line take you to & from
People it’s all starting to look the same

We’re beginning to lose the ground
Elevators up & down
People what do we leave behind?

Chorus
Building a concrete jungle
Why do we feed our hunger
All at the cost of our mother
And it’s all at the cost…. of our (Sanctuary)

Sanctuary, Sanctuary

Imitating tinsel town
Millions entitled now
People we’re starting to lose our names
Praying to our phones at night
Drink a world of pain behind
People were all trying to anesthetize

Chorus
Building a concrete jungle (riff)
Why do we feed our hunger (riff)
All at the cost of our mother (riff)
And it’s all at the cost…. of our (Sanctuary)

Ooh Mother earth, Can’t lift that steel, And take it back
Ooh Mother earth, don’t have the rights
so she can’t fight

Chorus

Why do we feed our hunger (riff)
All at the cost of our mother (riff)
And it’s all at the cost…. of our (Sanctuary)
