Life's Too Short

Play
Open Lyrics Life's Too Short Lyrics

'Life's Too Short' is actually the oldest song on the record. It was initially supposed to be on the Greatest Hits album, but it's now come back with a vengeance. It's a great track, really lifted by the strings. It's about life being too short and seizing the moment. Carpe diem. It's just a fun pop song...

Still Thinking About You

Play
Open Lyrics Still Thinking About You Lyrics

This is one of my favourite songs on the record. The first time I listened to it, it gave me goosebumps. It's one of those songs that works straight away live and kind of reminds me of all the indie bands that I grew up loving back in the '90’s. Its got a really fun, band-y vibe.

Open Lyrics Castles Lyrics

This track is probably one of the most chilled out and dare I say it, beautiful tracks on the album. It's quite heartfelt. I really love this song. I'm really looking forward to playing this. I still remember driving around listening to the early mixes and thinking it was great...

Open Lyrics Home Lyrics

Another one of my favourites and has been since we've had it around. It's just so sweet. It's a great compliment to 'Life's Too Short'. We did this in a little studio in the Matrix Complex in South London, where a lot of the album's demos were recorded. I do like the lyric to this... It is probably the best of the tracks we're playing live at the moment. It sounds awesome.

My Vow

Play
Open Lyrics My Vow Lyrics

This is a nice little drop halfway through the album which initially started off as an acoustic piano idea. Lyrically, it's just a love song about finding 'the person'... The production is very simple.

Black & Blue

Play
Open Lyrics Black & Blue Lyrics

The original demo for this started during album three, and I just couldn't come up with the chorus. We just had that riff with the strings and always thought it would work really well... It just took time to gel. This song is mainly about the strings. I think that's the really poignant lyric, "don't give our love away"... It is one of those songs you can just relax to.

Three Words 8 Letters

Play
Open Lyrics Three Words 8 Letters Lyrics

This was the last song written for the record. It's about not understanding all the things that go on in the world...

Bad Superman

Play
Open Lyrics Bad Superman Lyrics

This song just feels like the 'real' Scouting. It's kinda got that Posh Girls vibe, like a proper live classic. We've always had something that's a little bit quirky on our albums. When you sit, really concentrate and listen to all of the lyrics, it's hilarious. It's fun and it's a fun lyric. I think that's what a lot of people think about Scouting.

Best Laid Plans

Play
Open Lyrics Best Laid Plans Lyrics

Another real, quiet, tender moment on the record. It was written the last night that I was in LA and I was waiting for the cab to take me to the airport. I still love the song. It's just about how, despite everything you do, you can still make a mess of it...

Thank You & Goodnight

Play
Open Lyrics Thank You & Goodnight Lyrics

I always wanted to write a song you could end the set with. Lyrically, I always imagined singing this as the last song in a show or the last song on a tour. Basically it's how I felt at the end of the Greatest Hits tour - I didn't know what we were going to do. So it was a thank you to everyone who supported us on this journey of being in a band. We realised how much we owe to people who come to watch and support us... So, thank you.

Christmas In The Air (Tonight)

Play
Open Lyrics Christmas In The Air (Tonight) Lyrics

This is a non-cynical Christmas song and I'm really proud of it. It's an honest song. It's actually about a Christmas night that I had at home in Ruislip around 20 years ago. This song really did make me jump back to being sixteen and getting that proper warm feeling...

Life’s too short

Now I know we just met but I'll never forget,
The way you tripped me, you tripped me up in love,
It took me by surprise.

And she knows, that I love, everything that she does,
Cause she's stunning, she keeps me mesmerised,
I fell into her deep blue eyes,
I fell into her deep blue eyes.

Come on, come on, come on just kiss me
I'll show you how to start
Your head says no but don't you listen
Just feel it in your heart
Come on, come on, come on just kiss me
Who cares if we get caught?
Because we both know that life’s just too damn short

Don't be scared, lets not wait, I don’t want to hesitate,
Just come and kiss me, you make the sun shine brighter,
Set my world on fire.

And I know we'll be fine, even if you take your time,
I'd wait forever, cause you make my heart sing,
Just like a choir.

Chorus

Can you hear my heartbeat darling?
It's louder than an army marching on,
Can you feel my heartbeat darling?

Chorus

I’m still thinking about you

Since we met, there’s been one thing on my mind.
Not like that, but probably not far behind.
You’re the best, you’re the best thing I’ve ever known.
Don’t forget, don’t forget that I love you so.

I wake up
Thinking ‘bout you
I go to bed
The same thing is true
And in between guess what I do?
I’m still thinking about you.

I’m still thinking about you
It’s the only thing I know how to do
I’m still thinking about you
Still thinking about you

Since you left, there's still one thing on my mind.
Just like that, why you walked out of my life?
You’re the best, the best thing that I ever knew.
Don’t forget, I'll be here whatever you choose.

I wake up
Thinking ‘bout you
I go to bed
The same thing is true
And in between guess what I do?
I’m still thinking about you.

Chorus

When I’m at the end I know what I'll be doing
I will remember you face as I knew it
When I’m at the end I know what I'll be doing
I’ll be still thinking about you
I’ll be still thinking about you
I’ll be still thinking about you

Chorus

One year on I’ll be thinking ‘bout you,
Ten years on the same will be true,
Even when I’m Seventy Two,
I’ll be thinking about you.

Castles

I don’t know what I'd do without you,
But my heart’s been wearing thin,
I don’t know what else we could do,
To stop these walls from caving in.

It’s hard to keep your head above water,
So in love that you wanna drown.
Can anybody hear me calling?
Above the waves as they’re crashing down.

When you’re lost in love and waiting,
Trying to find a way to break you down,
Can’t you see there's no escaping now.

And I’m standing on the waterline,
Trying hard to ignore the tide.
But nothing’s ever gonna last,
If you think it's gonna break your heart,
You can’t say that I didn’t try
But I think we both realised,
That we’ve been building castles,
Below, below the water line.

I don’t know how to live without you,
I wouldn't know where to begin.
Cause everything I built around you,
Fell apart as we crumbled in.

Tell me how to turn the tide back,
You’re never gonna have it all.
I'd rather be below the surface,
Than trying to weather out the storm.

When you’re lost in love and waiting,
Trying to find a way to break you down,
Can’t you see there's no escaping now.

Chorus

Chorus

Home

You came out of nowhere,
And knocked me down,
With a love so big,
It built a town,
All around me,
And it keeps me safe,
With you I've found my place.

Because home is wherever, I'm with you.
And I'll stay there forever, as long as you stay too.
I'm never gonna leave, it’s what I am, it’s where I’m from.
I found home, it’s you and it's all, it’s all that I want.

 Walking round in circles,
All my life.
Trying to find you,
Trying to make things right.
I just wanted,
You to know,
That I loved you,
And that you’re my home.

Chorus

And every now and then I get lost on the way.
Trying to find myself a new place to stay.
No matter where I go I end up at the start.
‘Cause home is where the heart is, and you've always had my heart.

Chorus

My Vow

Neon lights
In your eyes
Lit up the darkness.
Just one kiss
Changed your life
That’s how it started.

Loving you was so easy
I couldn't stop even if I tried.

This is my vow
That I promise you now
This is my vow
That I won't let you down
Even if you break my heart
Tear my world apart
I’ll fix it somehow
Lying in the dark
Looking at the stars
I promise you now
This is my vow
This is my vow

You were right
When you said is life
Is what you make it.
Cause all I want is
All you got
It's not complicated.

Loving you is never easy,
I couldn't stop even if I tried.

Chorus

It goes on, it goes on, it goes on,
It goes on, it goes on, it goes on.

Chorus

Black and Blue

Black and Blue in love
That is what I was
When you left that day.

Arrow through my heart
Tear my world apart
Since you went away.

Don't Give Our Love Away, Darling
Don't Give Our Love Away, oh Darling
Don't Give Our Love Away,
The last words I ever heard you say.

Bruised and broken love
Feel like giving up
Don’t know how to change.

Don’t know where to start
Mend these broken parts
No one left to blame.

Don't Give Our Love Away, Darling
Don't Give Our Love Away, oh Darling
Don't Give Our Love Away,
‘Cause a love like that it wont come round again.

Give me chance. Don’t walk away.
Cause tomorrow's a beautiful day.

Give me chance. Don’t walk away.
Cause tomorrow's a beautiful day.

Black and Blue in love
Yeah with you I was, when you went away.

Three Words Eight Letters

I read the news today. The same old story John relayed nearly 50 years ago. Nothing’s changed but time has flown. The English Army's won the war - Against whom? Well no one's sure, but take a photo while you're there to show the world how much you care. Each time I read the news it feels the same. I try and try but I can’t turn the page.

Three words Eight letters is the only thing that ever, the only thing that ever still
makes sense to me.
Three words Eight letters, if you want her, go and get her,
cause the best things in life are still free.
Don’t let the best things in life get away.

I read a thousands words on how dinosaurs rule the earth and why all those in charge are not trusted to drive a car. I see the stars fall from the sky but no one else seems that surprised, what else can we do? When you’ve put a man on the moon. Each time I read the news I feel the same. I try and try but I can’t turn the page.

Chorus

Don’t let the best thing is life get away,
Don’t take heed of anything they say,
Not tomorrow and not today,

Can you feel the love,
Can you feel the love,
Can you feel the love,
It’s falling out.
Can you feel the love,
Can you feel the love,
Can you feel the love,
It’s calling out.

Bad Superman

Bad guys - Do what you like.
I'm getting high tonight on kryptonite.
Cause since the day that she left,
I’ve stayed in bed. I've been depressed.
You knew that I saw through walls
So what d'ya kiss him for ? I saw it all.
And now if you're in distress
You're gonna have to find someone else instead.
The only time I use my X ray powers
Is when I think you're gonna take a shower

Don’t you understand - I'm just Bad Superman,
I'll do anything to get to you.
Don’t you understand - I'm just Bad Superman,
Getting over Louis was nothing compared to you.

Cause I'm bad superman,
Kinda sad Superman,
Just a man without you.
The only super thing about me, was you.

Was I a little intense?
You never liked me when I was Clarke Kent.
Was it because of the glasses?
It may sound weird but I had to ask it.
Cause I could always wear lenses,
I don’t know why my laser eyes never mended?
What's been happening to me?
But since you left I just turned really mean.
The only time I use my laser eyes
Is to make your new boyfriend cry.

Don’t you understand - I'm just Bad Superman.
And I’ll do anything to get to you

Don’t you understand - I'm just Bad Superman
Getting over Louis was nothing compared to you

Chorus

Best Laid Plans

I love you so
Your heart is like gold and butter.
Soft to the touch
Need it so much
I want you.

But in my hands
The best laid plans
Just fall apart.

Tear me away,
back to the day
I lost you.
Give me a chance,
Time goes so fast,
I want you.

But in my hands
The best laid plans
Just fall apart.

Oh in my hands
The best laid plans
Just fall apart
Fall apart

Thank You and Goodnight

So thank you and goodnight,
I never liked long goodbyes.
Turn the lights off when you go,
You were always my home.

So thank you and goodnight,
For the memories for the highs.
Who knows where this ends,
If I'll see you again.

So thank you and goodnight,
You've got a new mountain to climb.
Can you see what you've done?
I can die having loved.

So thank you and goodnight,
I wish I could stay by your side.
But we leave one by one,
It’s the same way we come.

Thank you and goodnight
I couldn't want more from my life
I'm no longer scared,
I'm just so glad you were there.

Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

Did you know that night?
When you said goodbye,
That it was the last time,
That it was the last time.

Black and Blue in love, still with you I was, Black and Blue in love.

Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodnight

Christmas in the air (tonight)

Your smile warms me like central heating,
Hot chocolate on a frosty evening,
Warm breath cold lips that I’ve been waiting for,
All my life to kiss.

People pass by but we don’t notice,
I try, yeah I try but I'm just hopeless,
Hopelessly in love with, the girl here by my side,
On a cold dark Christmas night.

There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
And it feels so nice, loving you for the first time.

The shops open late and the school band sings a song,
A crowd gathers as the scout group marches on,
We'll meet our friends they’re drinking in the Swan,
I don’t know where the times gone.

The High Street's closed to all traffic,
We walk in the road and it feels like magic,
When I hold you close nothings ever felt so right,
On a cold dark Christmas night.

There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
And it feels so nice,
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
There's a little bit of Christmas in the air
And it feels so right,
Loving you so hard tonight,
Kiss you under Christmas lights,
It was the best night of my life,
Loving you for the first time.

So fall,
Won’t you Fall on me?
Cause I’ll be here,
With whatever you need
And I know it might sound stupid
But nothing felt so right
As loving you, on that cold dark Christmas night.

Chorus
