1 Sadness is a blessing

2 Longest way round is the shortest way home

3 This loneliness won’t leave me alone

4 Sittin’ in the morning sun

5 They don’t love you like I love you

6 You and I are gonna live forever

7 Don’t worry, be happy

8 Love is a battlefield

9 Stuck inside these four walls

10 One of these days somebody is going to find you

11 Let’s don’t let a good thing die

12 Would I see suspicion in your eyes?

14 I can’t walk out

15 The dead can dance if they want romance

16 He’s already in me

17 Death was more interesting to him

18 Well hang on

19 Parklife!
