Track Name: Personal Worst (single version)
When I'm tired
When I'm at my second-last best
Will you hold me
Even when I've picked a fight?

When I've done
My personal worst
I tried and tried but set
My personal worst

If everyone on the bus
Is talking shop
When I escape
Could you please pick me up?

When the sight of one more person
Fills me up with bile
Can you help me spit it out,
Spit it out?

When I'm at
My personal worst
I tried and tried but set
My personal worst

But in return, I'll see
To your every need
Let us savour
The quiet nights inside

When you're at
Your personal worst
You tried and tried but set
Your personal worst

Can we switch off our phones and dim the lights?
Track Name: Late Nights On Travel Sites
Late nights on travel sites
Calculating how we'll meet again
For those first few seconds in your arms
I strain my eyes and stretch my paycheque

Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
I don't know.

Early mornings at airports
Bereft in line, wanting to vomit
To empty the emptiness inside
Where is home? Where is home now?

Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
I don't know.

Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
Was it worth it?
It was worth everything.
