"Encouraging Sign" as written by Philip David Etheridge, Jonathan Max Watkin, Martin Saunders, Stuart David Hartland and Matthew Nicholas Clinton....
Sometimes the skills I lack are just the things that hold me back but
Thats the type of things that makes me laugh the most,
Can't we just get along cause I got the jist of holding on to you, try holding onto me.

And I made my bed today with the hope that you might jump right in it,
Although I don't with a lot I say, when I said I liked you I really meant it.
And although all the perfume that you wear has a tendency to make me feel slightly ill
The fact its on my pillow still, is an encouraging sign.

And we'll quickstep over the rooftops to get to your house,
It's my heart that you're stealing and that sounds appealing to me now.
And we'll quickstep over the rooftops to get to your house,
It's my heart that you're stealing and that sounds appealing to me now.

And no I'm not prepared to sit through all the icy stares ?cause,
That's type of looks that get to me the most,
Can't we just get along cause I've got the jist of holding on for you, try holding on for me.

And I'm even toying with the idea this could be forever,
I suppose all that depends on you if it's something you endeavour.
And these feelings spill out randomly
I have a tendency to run away with myself,
Can't think of nothing else, but making you mine.

And we'll quickstep over the rooftops to get to your house,
It's my heart that you're stealing and that sounds appealing to me now.
And we'll quickstep over the rooftops to get to your house,
It's my heart that you're stealing and that sounds appealing to me now.

I still want you, nothing's changed after all this time
I still want you, nothing's changed after all this time
I still need you, nothing's changed after all this time
I still need you, nothing's changed after all this time

And we'll quickstep over the rooftops to get to your house,
It's my heart that you're stealing and that sounds appealing to me now.
And we'll quickstep over the rooftops to get to your house,
It's my heart that you're stealing and that sounds appealing to me now.

    Such a beautifully emotive lyric. He doesn't like her perfume and yet her scent is on one of his most personal, intimate spaces - his pillow.

    Love it.
