Track Name: Me
Went to a bar
Not very far
From the centre of town

Five minutes late
For our first date
Look at my phone and I frown

You'll be ten minutes you think
I order myself a drink
Stand by the wall looking awkward feeling lonely til you come

Don't recognise
You hid your eyes
Behind your glasses in your pics

Check the info
You say hello
You guess I must be Ric

You ask what I am drinking
You say you're tired of thinking
In fact you just got here and looked at me and you're already done

My heart's beating faster
This is a disaster
I should've swiped past her
I never should've asked her
My heart's beating faster oh
This is a disaster
My heart's beating faster oh
This is a disaster

Get you whiskey
Talking quickly
Find a quiet table upstairs

Say mostly nothing
You start huffing
Look at the far wall and just stare

Don't know what overcomes me
Try to say you're pretty
But tell you I have poor taste and therefore you must be ugly

Three hours pass
Did not go fast
But too polite to just leave

Go for a stroll
Invite you home
And you look at me and say oh please

It's been absolutely dire
It's late and you are tired
And you're still mad about the time just know when I called you ugly

My heart's beating faster
This is a disaster
I should've swiped past her
I never should've asked her
My heart's beating faster oh
It was a disaster
My heart's beating faster oh
It was a disaster

Now a year has flown past
And we're moving in together
We'll laze on our sofa
And talk about the weather
My heart's beating faster
I'm so glad I asked her
My heart's beating faster
I am so in love with her
Track Name: A Cold One
One hundred miles south
A little to the west
That's where we will go
To make our nest

I will smile at you every morning
I will hold you in my arms
You will make a cup of coffee
As I reset my alarm

We will make time for one another
But be free to do our own thing
You will rest for a while on the sofa
And I will sometimes sing

I will tell you that I love you every day
Even if we're falling out, I'll say it anyway
We will laugh, we will cry, hopefully not all the time
We will cuddle on our sofa and everything will be fine

I will kiss you on the cheek each night
I will lean out of the bed and turn off the light
One hundred miles south and a little to the west
Here's to the next year and the rest
Track Name: The Boys
You always greet me with a smile when I walk in
You've got the tortilla in the toaster before I've started ordering
You ask what kind of meat I'd like
Well I'm feeling like pulled pork tonight

Boys I'm never coming back
So pile the rice on high
I will have one last burrito
Before I say goodbye

Yes I'll take some peppers and onions
Yes I'd like a smattering of sour cream
You don't charge extra for guacamole
Mild salsa if you please

Boys I'm never coming back
So pile the rice on high
I will have one last burrito
Before I say goodbye

I'll have a packet of nachos
Some extra salsa on the side
Swipe my contactless and sit down
Eat my first bite and die

Boys I'm never coming back
So pile the rice on high
I will have one last burrito
Before I say goodbye
