Track Name: Best Friend
You're my best friend, well one of them
Don't look at me shady like a hologram
I didn't write the list ask Jonathan
I'll just go off and come on again

We used to hang out round my house or your house
Now your house is my house my house is your house
Staying up late, talking 'til we're worn out
Then sleep the night away, hibernate, like a dormouse
I've got your back, you've got my backpack
Could I have it back?
Quick snap, like black jack
That's that, climb through doors like catflaps
Travel the world but make time for catnaps

Once we've seen all of this earth
We will take over the sun
And hold it in the sky
Light it up for everyone
And when the evening arrives
We'll breath these summer nights
Stay awake until the sun rise

Where am I supposed to go?
If you're not coming out I'm not going out
What am I supposed to do?
Seems ridiculous, this is boring
Where am I supposed to go?
If I aint got you
If I aint got you

So we'll walk from Old Street to Hyde park
Try and find somewhere to buy beer but it's quite dark
I do know of a shop but it's quite far
Let's enjoy the world as it flys past
Play acoustic guitars to a group of just strangers
Rearrange them into friends we've had for ages
'Cause music's contagious
Get lost in it's spaces
I'll lend you the book but you'll have to turn the pages yourself
I mean I'll help find you the shelf
And if you're lost out at sea
Climb aboard my boat with me
That's a friendship

Once we've seen all of this earth
We'll take over the sun
And hold it in the sky
Light it up for everyone
And when the evening arrives
We'll breathe these summer nights
Stay awake until the sun rise

Where am I supposed to go?
If you're not coming out I'm not going out
What am I supposed to do?
Seems ridiculous, this is boring
Where am I supposed to go?
If I aint got you
If I aint got you
Track Name: Pigeon
There's a pigeon outside of my kitchen window
He's urging me to escape
He's got the wings but ya you know the thing is he's got
He's got nothing to say
And the leaves on the trees
Are looking at me
In blind frustration
Cos they're rooted to the ground
But any minute now
I could take a trip down to the station I'd be gone

Stay strong with my head in my hands
Like an ostrich stands with his head in the sand
And I don't know if he said somethings
Going round and a round and a round the cinema aisles

I gave my soul to this street
The street gave it back to me
I guess it's time to be moving on
Track Name: Guanabana Juice
Imagine if they made a drink
That was the best of all drinks
Keep picturing that drink
That drink is guanabana
Imagine if they made a drink
That was the best of all drinks
Keep picturing that drink
That drink is guanabana

Yes I do like a stella
Drinking pints with the fellas
But I also like guanabana
Drinking guanabana with the fellas
Gets me high but so natural
Totally legal thats factual
Makes me run like a cheetah
Makes me fly like a kestral
No it's not a mix of banana and guava
It grows in the rainforest tropicalia
And if you don't know that then you know nada
Makes me feel happy like good karma
And makes me feel safe like when I'm in a battle with armour on a llama

Imagine if they made a drink
That was the best of all drinks
Keep picturing that drink
That drink is guanabana
Imagine if they made a drink
That was the best of all drinks
Keep picturing that drink
That drink is guanabana

Eyyyy Guanabana Guanabana
Guanabana Eyyy Guanabana Guanabana!

Guanabana yes! Guanabana no!
Guanabana what! Guanabana oh!
Guanabana fast! Guanabana slow!
Can I get a guanabana for the road yo!
Guanabana es muy guapa
I love it almost as much as mi hermana
Made in the US it'd be Guanamericana
If you don't like Bush then hit him with a spanner
Hannah what you doing with that coke in a can'a
Put it away I don't care if you got it from your nana
Hannah don't look at me like I talk with a stamma
'Cause guanabana's big I mean big like savannah
I want it as much as mozart wanted 'pianas'
Napolean wanted canons
I hope you understand this
I want it like Attenborough wanted orangutanas
Maxwell wanted hammers
Picasso wanted canvas

Imagine if they made a drink
That was the best of all drinks
Keep picturing that drink
That drink is guanabana
Imagine if they made a drink
That was the best of all drinks
Keep picturing that drink
That drink is guanabana

Eyyyy Guanabana Guanabana
Guanabana Eyyy Guanabana Guanabana!
Track Name: Understand
You are trying to explain
I see the words coming out of your mouth
But I don't understand
I'm trying to understand
