I Just Need Myself
I'll die before I get to sleep
When screaming shadows haunt my dreams
I'm cold and soaking wet when daylight shows its face
This fear will always get in your way

And I can hear so much
That I miss it everyday
It finds me deep in love and deeper down the lane
I don't know too much but I know what I want to say
I Just Need Myself

Please leave me when you see me fall
Oh please I have to climb that wall
And from the top of it you can nearly see your face
But don't let this ever get in your way

Repeat Chorus

I'm not going to walk on sinking sand
I'll sail this day to higher land
and when the sun is high, and I'll let my music say
These things will never get in your way

Repeat Chorusback to top
Oh Collector
Oh collector I'm so sorry
You had the notion that I was rolling
In the money no I'm sorry
But I'll pay you
No Worry

Let's Sing Softly
Let's Sing Softly
Oh so softly
Not so heavy

I've been heavy with my fortune
Like a crystal and a hammer
I'm so sorry Oh collector
I'm away now in a hurry

Repeat Chorus

Get up all you fighters
Don't you lie here now
Oh collector you had it coming
It was that funny we were rolling
Oh collector we're so sorry
And we'll pay you
No Worry

North Atlantic Drift
Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns

Its a cultural shift its the North Atlantic Drift
Americana and a rule Britannia
And the moon yes we own that to
And where the Euphrates meets the other rivers
Is now the home of the devil and the liar
And the pyre we plan to make
Is just the drift leaving its wake, home

Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns

And the films you want to watch
And the films you want to make
And the kids like lost angels
Dressed in black sensations
And the shift won抰 shake
And the drift won抰 brake
With billions of Diamonds growing like olives
And the drift holds the coffers

Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns
Meanwhile Rome burns

Golden Gate Bridge
Something I need from you
I really want to know
Like the way you do
I've been burned before
But not this way by you

And I need to know I can trust you... with my life
On the Golden Gate bridge
Or a fire in the night
Or the edge of the night
And I really hope I can have you... all my life
A fifty second anniversary
Of the whole of time

Something I need to know
Is any of this true
All the things they say
Or are they only cruel
But I fear only pain

And I need to know I can trust you... with my life
On the Golden Gate bridge
Or a fire in the night
Or the edge of the night
And I really hope I can have you... all my life
A fifty second anniversary
Of the whole of time

[Middle Eight]

And I need to know I can trust you... with my life
On the Golden Gate bridge
Or a fire in the night
Or the edge of the night
And I really hope I can have you... all my life
A fifty second anniversary
Of the whole of time

Make the Deal
Time after time you told me it was the truth
Time after time you lied to me through your tooth
How can you sing when everyone writes your song
You think you pull the strings and I get strung along

Ba, ba, ba, ba

So cry, won't you cry
You should have saved that for youth
And does it elevate the stakes
When you try to find the truth

In the real world they make real deals
And it hurts your cause and it clips your heels
And I would not hesitate
To say that I will not be here again
In the real world

It's not my way to slap you in the face
When it seems your way to spell dis with a grace
Where are your friends theyr'll moving on
Why do you get paid when everyone writes your song

In the real world but you make the deals
And it hurts some more till you just can't feel
And I would not hesitate
To say that I will not be here again
Save the real world for the suits in the cells
Who only think they're free when freedom sells
And I would not hesitate
To say that I will not be here again
In the real worldback to top
For Every Corner
I'll take your side and I'll take you into town
And there you'll search around
You hope she must be waiting now
Found what you need don't push her too far
Don't ever let her see you down
I hope she's waiting now

It's not that she has been around too long to never try
Too Long to never try

For every corner there's a way out
And every day that you lose there's a pay out, there's a pay out

And if she cries you know it will be fine
With things now on your side don't frown
She is waiting now
But if she sings, then she's taken all you bring
To her you mean all things you Smile
She's waiting now

It's not that she has been around too long to never try
Too Long to never try

Repeat Chorus

But don't you think the time will come when you'll get in her way
Or she'll bring you down the same

Repeat Chorusback to top
On My Way
Father forgive me
But I don't care
Taking off the things they wear
In lines
She's got a family
Now they stay inside
Don't think she'll make it home tonight

And I'm on my way to the next town
And I'm on my way in a hurry and I'm on my way
My head down and down and down
And I'm on my way
Don't worry

Don't look straight at me
Get that straight
Get out and leave before the next day
He made it happen
But I digress
I believe that something must have happened

Repeat Chorus

Take me alive take me tonight
Take me dead this time tomorrow
Take me to my place
Give me what you do
Find out the meaning of tomorrow
It will not happen
And it never can
Fe fi sit down your pattern

Repeat Chorusback to top
Second Hand Car
In a second hand car you ran away with him
You did'nt get too far before he made you cry
And he beat on you - Oh he never treated you
More something on his shoe walk on by - on by

Its time - time to run away from him
A man don't act that way and you know he'll never change

Its a way to love - knocked down and bruises too
And its a way for him to knock down and use you
I'll send a ticket to you - I'll send the fare to you
I'll say a prayer for you - and it makes me cry - me cry

Its time - time to run away from him
A man don't act that way and you know he'll never change
It's time - time for you to come on home
But the world don't seem that way and you know it'll never change
Never change, never change

It's such a rare report - she got lost on him
I get lost in thought - hope she walks on by
I'll make the time to give - If you don't give a damn
We'll make a home and live
Without you and we can

Repeat Chorus

On and On and On and On
On and On and On and On
On and On and On and On
On and On and On and Onback to top
She's Been Writing
The Village Girl ain抰 it just the way
Grows her hair long and paints her face
Nobody calls her anyway
It抯 a shame

Here we go she knows it all
Writes it all down to tell us all
Nobody hears her at all
Anymore

She抯 Been Writing
She抯 Been Writing
She抯 Been,
Ah she抯 been writing

At the fighting bar she knows the law
Ah she抣l just get up and sock you on the jaw
After all she抯 been in love before
Nevermore

Repeat Chorus

Between the stages and the sad refrains you know she sings
I抦 just a dreamer scheming for the show
Between the pages I can hardly stand the pain
The changes bought to you before you had to go

Sandy Girl ain抰 it just the way
Grows her hair long and makes mistakes
Nobody calls her anyway
Nevermore

Repeat Chorus X2

All the sad refrains you know
She sings them soloback to top
The Song Goes On
I never left at all you were there before
Never let it go now I need some more
But you did confuse me you get it on get it on
And If I had to use me I抎 be there in the song

And the song goes on
Ah yeah and the song goes on

I抳e been by the sides
Would抧t you agree with me

Never fought it off kept away oh so bad
Don抰 like your world or the way you had
You secure your choice your抮e around like a voice
Never let you know you were there every word

And the word goes on
Ah yeah and the word goes on

I抳e been by the sides
Would抧t you agree with me

It depends on whose doorway you walk through
To find the truth
It depends on whose doorway you walk through
To find the truth

Never left at all you were there like before
I never let it go now I need some more
Oh you did confuse me you抮e in my way on and on
If I had to use me I抎 be there in the song

And the song goes on
Ah yeah and the song goes on

It depends on whose doorway you walk through
To find the truth
It depends on whose doorway you walk through
To find the truth
It depends on whose doorway you walk through

When Evil Comes
I don抰 like this anymore than you
In fact I抦 scared
At the top of the stairs in the dark

Throw away all the dreams you had
Slow and broke
And just for you
You were barely there

Hey little girl where抯 your momma gone
Has she left you scared
At the top of the stairs
In the dark

It抯 too late for come backs
And I抳e been wrong before
Now I need
I need no more
Except for you
Making up the sides

Evil is when evil comes
At the top of the Stairs
At the top of the Stairs
And in the dark

The world won抰 listen
And it gets this scared
Standing there at the top of the stairs
In the dark

Come on baby
Let抯 lose this fear
And let抯 stand here
Where it抯 always fair
And never darkback to top
