Sunday Times Teaser 2764 – Three Little Lists

Published: 13 September 2015 (link)
I have chosen five different numbers, each less than 20, and I have listed these numbers in three ways. In the first list the numbers are in increasing numerical order. In the second list the numbers are written in words and are in alphabetical order. In the third list they are again in words and as you work down the list each word uses more letters than its predecessor. Each number is in a different position in each of the lists.
What are my five numbers?
