Track Name: Dear Michael
They left you alone at night
Handcuffed to the bed
And I get to wondering
What must have gone through your head?

They said, "you're family now
and you can't leave here,"
Or they'll hunt you down

Each time that you withdraw
Your income support
They'll call the office up
And find out where you are

You gave submission and they tore you apart, dear boy
No validation that your vulnerable heart's a toy to them
What stopped you from screaming out?
Dear Michael

They held you down
And took it in turns
To push you around

So you took all you could take
And the bottom of a lake
Is where they left your head
When you wound up dead

You gave submission and they tore you apart, dear boy
No validation that your vulnerable heart's a toy to them
What stopped you from screaming out?
Dear Michael

And I guess it's fair enough
That you wanted to belong
Sometimes we're blind by love.
Forget we've got to sing our own songs
Dear Michael
Track Name: She Makes Me Nervous
She Makes Me Nervous

This was the last thing that I wanted to hear
Now I got you crying at my feet
I have seen this all from the other side
You're just not the one for me

Hope seeps in like a drug sometimes
And you can never have enough
Here I am wrapped inside it's serpentine coils
Never gonna find a release

I didn't want to have to leave you my dear
Cos I'm afraid you might be crushed by this
Please don't be wounded when I say I don't want you near
It wasn't love it was just a kiss

Hope seeps in like a drug sometimes
And you can never have enough
Here I am wrapped inside it's serpentine coils
Never gonna find a release, never gonna find a release...

I'm not in love with her
She just makes me nervous
And I can't stand
Her accusing eyes
They say that I have been too unkind
Hers was a love I could not requite
We just wasted time

Hope seeps in like a drug sometimes
And you can never have enough
Here I am wrapped inside it's serpentine coils
Never gonna find a release, I'm never gonna find a release
Am I ever gonna find, ever gonna find, ever gonna find a release?
