Album: Whatever's On Your Mind (2011)
  • I could be the guy at the end of the street
    high on caffeine
    Ranting and raving, baby
    And that’s OK
    At least I've got options
    Or I could be the one who gives it all up
    and moves back to the parents’ house
    Live in the basement baby
    And that’s OK
    At least I've got options

    All the things you’ll see
    And the place you’ll go
    All the people you need
    Everybody wants you
    Wants to be you

    I could settle down be responsible
    Be a good man
    And Learn how to fix things, baby
    And that’s OK
    At least I've got options
    Or I could try and learn what I unlearned
    Moving to business
    And make loads of money for gullible people
    That’s OK
    At least I've got options

    All the things you’ll see
    And the place you’ll go

    All the people you need
    Everybody wants you
    Wants to be you

    I never wanted to change you
    I only wanted to share
    I don’t believe, I don’t believe
    Starting over and over again,
    Over and over again

    Somebody who understands and loves me
    Despite all my weakness' baby
    And that’s OK
    At least I've got options

    All the things you’ll see
    (All the things that you wanted see)
    And the places you’ll go
    (All the places that you wanted to go)
    All the people you need
    (All the people you wanted to need)
    And the lovers you've known
    All the lovers that you wanted to know

    Everybody wants you
    Wants to be you

    Over and over again
    Over and over again Writer/s: Benjamin Joseph Ottewell, Ian Thomas Ball, Oliver James Peacock, Paul Blackburn, Thomas William Gray
