Don't hesitate Hesitate Before you get to me Don't hesitate It'll be too late Before you get to me I've got my car in the fast lane and a tank full of dreams You've got your mind on your own mission, never caught in my seams But as you sit and decide who you wanna be Well don't hesitate before you get to me You say she's driving you crazy Like a February cat Yowlin' up a wall I took my sweet time when I wrote this ditty for you But then you had the nerve to laugh at my score Don't hesitate... All you wanna be is a step before the rest And all I wanna do is do what I love best But then you wake up and ask where she's disappeared Well yeah you hesitated, now go on, let me be You say she's... Here's my chance to try and set you straight What is going on? Though you'd like a bit more time to wait Wasting time is wrong Don't hesitate... She's driving...

I'm starting my own circus Hitch a ride, right out of here Take a deep breath, take a plunge Make myself just disappear Get to some place exciting A city with big dreams for rent We pursue for a living And our time is never underspent A-Here, a-here I'm running out I'm running running out of here a-here I'm running out Out with the old me, here's the new That was the ferry's last call My hair's set, my mind is too I'm running from it all, can I run from it all? A-Here, a-here... I've moved past our solo act I'm even more without you, I am a show without you At least then I have you to thank I'm even more without you, I am a show without you, I like me more without you A-Here, a-here... I'm starting my own circus Hitch a ride, right out of here

The universe is closing in on me The tides draw in waves up to my knees Sunshine only heightens every fear It ends when you are here The cloud above my head parts in awe The shortest straw is now my favourite draw You take on any day And live my life Then say "It's going to be fine" Stood outside the wreckage And tired of this fairground You remind me none could ever Rest my cauldron heart Faces that I could not know or see Blank sheets of paper stare right back at me Words and meanings seem so insincere The chaos ends when you are here The cloud above my head parts in awe... Stood outside the wreckage... It's going to be fine How do we draw a line Between what we can't fix and what we need to send for mending When the evening's rough When enough's enough You exercise your art; the start, the in between and ending Stood outside the wreckage... It's going to be fine...

Thank God for the ones who stick around. Though they put you in your place, they're the ones that keep you sound. Rest assured that when you blunder, you will hear the sounds of thunder. So, thank God, for those friends who stick around. Thank God for family love that never dies. They cleaned up after your messes then tucked you in at night. And then, when later, you move out, and finally get what life's about. You thank God for their love that never dies. And do thank God for the friends who come and go There was a time when you were close, you shared the highs and lows And though you may be days apart, you keep a small place in your heart And ask God to bless their years you cannot know. Thank God for the ones that make you cry It goes to show you have a heart, it shows that you're alive Facing your self one-to-one, that is when the tears will come. So thank God for the ones that make you cry. Most of all, thank the ones who stick around. They can help you build your dreams, with feet firmly on the ground. Though there's plenty to be thankful for, plenty for you to adore, Thank God for the ones who stick around.
