Track Name: Something I Don't Know
Tell me your secrets or tell me your lies
Don't matter which one for you to decide
Tell me something Something I don't know
Tell me something Something I don't know

Speaking the words that she spoke on the train
Some of the best things are best unexplained
Tell me something Something I don't know
Tell me something Something I don't know

She's a daffodil on my bonnet top
Sitting on me in the parking lot
Time to shit or get off the pot
But hell I don't want this thing to stop
Oh no...
And still she goes

She wants to fight all this war on her own
Three legged horse at a million to one
Tell me something Something I don't know
Tell me something Something I don't know

She's a daffodil on my bonnet top
Sitting on me in the parking lot
Time to shit or get off the pot
But hell I don't want this thing to stop
Oh no...
And still she goes

Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here?
oh oh oh oh oh...
I don't know...
Track Name: Damn Honey
Patterns on the wall when there's no one talking,
Juniors at the ball with a girl he's stalking,
Don't know anybody who gets around like you.

She's talkin like an angel and biting like a devil,
when she's caught in a corner made of stone or metal,
with nowhere else to go.

Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight,
Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight.

Times are changing but her habits aren't breaking,
love loss trust and a word that's taken,
her this far.

Caught in the moment,
get stuck in further.
Learn to run or die for another cause,
ain't worth a second thought

Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight,
Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight.

She wants it,
She needs it,
Im begging on my knees just to see her,
She comes and goes...

You gotta keep on movin',
stop your talkin',
you don't know what's she's like.

You gotta keep on movin',
stop your talkin',
you don't know what's she's like.

Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight,
Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight.

Got fiery eyes and hair to match it,
move fast on your feet if ya wanna catch that,
beauty soaked skin,

Now tell her if ya want it tell if ya need it,
tell her sweet things gonna end up on your knees now,
like all of the rest.

Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight,
Damn honey ya got it all going on tonight.

She wants it,
She needs it,
Im begging on my knees just to see her,
She comes and goes...

You gotta keep on movin',
stop your talkin',
you don't know what's she's like.

You gotta keep on movin',
stop your talkin',
you don't know what's she's like.
Track Name: Never Really Cried
Moonlight shines to light your way
Morning comes to wash it all away
Oh baby, I never really cried for you

You were lost inside your world
I tried to help, I was ignored
Oh baby, I never really cried for you

Oh give me a reason babe
Tonight, today
Give me a reason now to throw it all away
Give it up to your teasing babe
Lead me astray
Never knew that love could ever feel this way

Oh now baby, I never really cried for you
Oh baby, I never really cried for you

Silent message inthe form of a blush
She's got to give it And she gets it too much
Oh now baby, I never really cried for you

And when the closeness goes and you grow apart
You got to get right back to the start
And now baby, I never really cried for you

Oh give me a reason babe
Tonight, today
Give me a reason now to throw it all away
Give it up to your teasing babe
Lead me astray
Never knew that love could ever feel this way
Oh now baby, I never really cried for you
Oh baby, I never really cried for you
Baby, I never really cried for you
Oh baby, I never really cried for you

Silent message in the form of a blush
She's got to give it if she gets it too much
And now baby, I never really cried for you
When the closeness goes and you
grow apart
You got to get right back to the start
Oh now baby, I never really cried for you

Oh baby, I never really cried for you
Oh baby, I never really cried for you
I never oh baby, I never really cried for you
I never, never cried
I never really cried for you
I never cried I never really cried for you
Track Name: Plastic Compass
Well I read all my maps but I still don't know where I'm at
This plastic compass gave up a mile before you joined us
Got one foot dug but I'm trying hard not to get stuck
Broken white lines on a road that brings you no luck

I was a wild card child in a hand jokers love to play
But sooner or later jokers loose their way
Sound of my cogs on a mission, cryin' to stop
These weary old bones need rest from the tick tock clock, tick tock!

Now I don't care I don't need you
No I don't care I don't need you
Jacked on the side with nowhere else to go
No lights between us, no whispers, no guarantee known
If I changed my route and I started all over again
Would you be my passenger, my only friend?

Now I don't care I don't need you
No I don't care I don't you
Drivin' the line, show me the way to go...
No whisper no, no mission no, guarantee of goin' home...
Got one foot dug but I'm trying hard not to get stuck
Broken white lines on a road that brings ye no luck
Track Name: Won't Let Go
You call me up just to let me down
Words were lost, never found
Get me a place where
I feel my own space
To get you off my mind

Well you left me out in the pounding rain
Soaked to the bone, were you ashamed
To hold me by the hand and whisper in my ear
Your always on my mind?

I should have known, you would not show
I should have known, you would not show
Your love, will not let go
Your love, will not let go
Your love
Won't let go, let go
No no

Now you can buy me a house or buy me a car
Not much different cause your gone too far
Aint gonna walk a path were the sun don't shine
Your always on my mind

I should have known, you would not show...
Track Name: Water's Edge
Hold me down
To the ground
Break these chains
So I can feel your space
I wanna run to the water's edge

Hold my hand
Through the night
Fall down slow
Juices flow
I wanna run to the water's edge
That's where I'll rest my head
I wanna run to the water's edge

Sail with me
The seven seas
Feel her breeze
Watch her tease
I wanna run to the water's edge
That's where I'll rest my head
I wanna run to the water's edge

Underneath
The cherry tree
Life begins
A rose that sins
I wanna run to the water's edge
That's where I'll rest my head
I wanna run to the water's
Oh to the edge

She runs, runs away
But I know her name...
Track Name: Tired Of Tryin'
I'll never be your number one
But I sure as hell am tired of tryin'
Her face demands so much attention
Got the walk and the perfect dimensions
The story stays the same
I'm waiting for a change

I'll never be your lover
But I sure as hell am tired of tryin'
Got the poems that you love to read at night
Just a shame you never call me by flashin' your light
The story stays the same
Waiting for a change

I'll never be your party
But I sure as hell am tired of tryin'
Well I'm drinking almost every morning
Just to ease the pain of not being wanted
The story stays the same
I'm waiting for a change

I'll never be the sun on your tan
But I'm sure as hell am never gonna fight that man
I'll never be your Valentine
Grab me by the collar throw me back in line

Got the words of a silent operation
Got the time but I need a location
I got the feeling that something is missin'
This ain't love if its love in submission
The story stays the same
I'm waiting fora change

I'll never be the sun on your tan
But I'm sure as hell am never gonna fight that man
I'll never be your Valentine
Grab me by the collar throw me back in line
Tired of tryin'...
Track Name: Love Don't Work
I tried to love you
As you did me and a lil bit more
But things can get ye
Bring ye some place ye never been before
But love don't work like that, no more

Once you're gone
It's not hard to do it wrong
I was gone
Gone one day far too long
But love don't work like that, no more

We had fun
But it melted down like a bleeding sun
I remember what you said In November
Love don't work like that, no more

Oh I only wanna chicha, chi-cha, chi-cha
I only wanna chi-cha, chi-cha, cha-chi
Love when you look at me I love you
Please don't say
Love don't work like that, no more
In the end I had to run away
I could not stay
When things get heavy
Certain type of men say certain type of things
Like love don't work like that, no more
No more...
Track Name: Memphis
Annie got a camera there ain't no subject in mind,
Julie's got a ring but a man she can not find
Jeffery's wants a bicycle to ride right out of town
Marta sits there wishing, she was found

But I'll be waiting for the pictures in the paper blow on through
'Cause til the sun comes up I'll be watching out in Memphis for you

Danny got a new car, his friends and neighbours admire
With a deep hidden streak of darkened desires
While Angie graduated from college in psychology
She asked Annie to take a picture
She said Annie you got a subject in me
But I'll be waiting for the pictures in the paper to blow on through
'Cause til the sun comes up I'll be watching out in Memphis for you
I will be holding on, holding on
I'll be holding on, holding on
I'll be holding on, holding on
I will be holding on, holding on
And I hope someday that we can
clarify, that true love really can shine
'Cause til the sun comes up I'll be watching out in Memphis for you
'Cause til the sun comes up I'll be watching out in Memphis for you
Track Name: Outside Looking In
Nothing in this life is free
I think you'd disagree
You've been hangin' round too long
Autumn came leaves all changed
Winters in the snow begins
Your footsteps climbing in the door

You can look from the outside in
But you'll never look from the Inside out
All you can do is hope and pray
You can look from the outside in
But you'll never look from the inside out
How much longer you gonna stay?

Pearly white teeth and blossom cheeks
Legs and feet to the beat
If only these walls could talk
I'm sure that you'd love her too
Real tattoo and cheap perfume
Coat hangin' firmly on the door

You can look fromthe outside in
But you never look from the inside out
All you can do is hope and pray
You can look from the outside in
But you'll never look from the inside out
How much longer you gonna stay?

I thought it was just a phase
One that would fade away
But now I hear she's bigger ever day
I said that she'd never win
But sometimes love can change the wind
Now it seems I'm the one looking in

You can look from the outside in
But you'll never look from the inside out
All you can do is hope and pray
You can look form the outside in
But you'll never look from the inside out
How much longer you gonna stay?...
Track Name: Time To Go
Dressed like a doll, swearing like a sailor
When the foghorn blows, she knows its time to go
Waving goodbye, not for the first time
Not for the last time, her face, it fades away
Till nothing else remains

From songs that she sings Come roses in Spring
Sits on the wind The joy they both bring
Saying hello, not for the first time
Not for the last time, she walks back in again It slowly all begins

Don't throw it away
Rome wasn't built in a day
Now I don't want you to change
Don't tell me you feel the same
No more I wait, no more I'll stay cause

Everything we ever said was turned and used like fighting
soldiers aiming at each other's heads
Everything we ever said was turned and used like fighting soldiers aiming at each other's heads

The roses in Spring I fed with love are dead!
Waving goodbye, not for the first time
Not for the last time, her face, fades away
Till nothing else remains

Don't throw it away
Rome wasn't built in a day
Now I don't want you to change
Don't tell me you feel the same
No more I wait, no more I'll stay 'cause

Everything we ever said was turned and used like fighting soldiers aiming at each other's heads
Everything we ever said was turned and used like fighting soldiers aiming at each other's heads

The roses in Spring I fed with love are dead!
