Hassles Martha's fine vocals, superbly
presented infectious soundscape and catchy grooves. The four tracks here are teasing. Panoramic is close to a mastering of the genre.

Track Name: My Foolish Thief
A suitcase full of stories and a forest filled with trees,
a hope that maybe one day we can drift away with ease,
but until then i'll be the wanted and you'll be my foolish thief,
'cos that's what they want us to be.

We hid behind the oaks and swept our tracks away from view,
left problems to the makers who we never even knew,
but I know you know i've never met somebody quite like you and
you know I know you feel it too.

Well i'm the bird and you're my feathers
and we're dancing through the weather
we'll be dancing until the sun decides to show
and though I may have two left feet
you've got two right so we're complete
and they're the ones that keep on treading on our toes
yeh they're the ones who keep on treading on our toes.

We never ran away we just turned life into a trip
To find the warmth of love we never found behind the brick
we're just lonely puzzle pieces trying to find somewhere to fit
and I think I know now where that is

Well i'm the bird and you're my feathers
and we're dancing through the weather
we'll be dancing until the sun decides to show
and though I may have two left feet
you've got two right so we're complete
and they're the ones that keep on treading on our toes
yeh they're the ones who keep on treading on our toes.

Chorus

A suitcase full of stories and a forest filled with trees
A hope that maybe one day we can drift away with ease.
Track Name: When We Get Old
You told me once that things would change as we both grow
But will you still love me when my lines begin to show
there are so many things that I have never been aware of
and there are no many things that i'm a little scared of.

Like will our hands go wrinkly in the bath when we get old?
And will we still swim in the sea in winter when it's cold?
I hope we never start to ever do as we are told,
when we get old
when we get old.

If we run backwards can we slow this process down?
Don't want to stray don't want to change anything about right now
and I know I should be grateful 'cos time gave us our past
but I just hope it doesn't creep on me too fast.

But will our hands go wrinkly in the bath when we get old?
And will we still swim in the sea in winter when it's cold?
I hope we never start to ever do as we are told,
when we get old
when we get old.

Will you, will you still love me,
when we, when we get older?
Will you, will you still love me,
when we, when we get older?
Will you, will you still love me,
when we, when we get older?
Will you, will you still love me?

You told me once that thing would change as we both grow,
but I never noticed any signs of change begin to show.

And our hands still go wrinkly in the bath now that we're old
and we're still swimming in the sea in winter when it's cold
I'm glad we never started to do things as we were told
Now that we're old,
now that we're old
now that we're old
I'm glad we're old.
Track Name: As Far As I'm Concerned
Promise me, when you're rich beyond you're wildest dreams,
when all the women start to scream your name you'll be mine.
Cross your heart, that even if we're miles apart,
you won't be thinking it's too hard and walk away.

Cos i'm not afraid to say that I wouldn't know what to do
and some might say there's more fish in the sea
and well maybe it might be true
But as far as i'm concerned and from all those things that I have learnt
Happiness is just loneliness plus you.

Promise this, if you ever need a loving kiss,
you'll remember that it's me you miss the most of all,
Don't you fear, you know I will always be right here,
waiting for the day you reappear outside my door.

Cos i'm not afraid to say that I wouldn't know what to do
and some might say there's more fish in the sea
and well maybe it might be true
But as far as i'm concerned and from all those things that I have learnt
Happiness is just loneliness plus you.

(whistles)

Cos i'm not afraid to say that I wouldn't know what to do (what to do)
and some might say there's more fish in the sea
and well maybe it might be true (maybe it might be true)
But as far as i'm concerned and from all those things that I have learnt
Happiness is just loneliness plus you
Happiness is just loneliness plus you
Happiness is just loneliness plus you.
Track Name: For You
Forget the handshakes, forget the how-do-you-do's
I spend my life avoiding people asking what I do
I've never known, i've never tried
just been trying to stay alive
keep my head about the water being taken by the tide

But I did my best, my best for you,
so that you could have the freedom to do what you want to do
Yes I did my best, my best is done
But it's worth it just to know the best for you is yet to come.

Why do I have to wait until i'm old and I am grey
To rid myself of services and debts I have to pay
When I was pushed out of the nest
and I didn't have a clue
I wish somebody had asked me what i really want to do.

But I did my best, my best for you.
So that you could have the freedom to do what you want to do,
yes I did my best my best is done
But it's worth it just to know the best for you is yet to come.

Well I won't miss the corporate calls or competing with my peers
taking sides just isn't natural when we're living on a sphere
and the day when it all ends i'll take a breath and start to tread
leaving bitterness behind me for the sweetness up ahead.

But I did my best, my best for you.
So that you could have the freedom to do what you want to do,
yes I did my best my best is done
But it's worth it just to know the best for you is yet to come.
