Track Name: For You
Why not come with me on the midnight train?
She said,
"Honey, I got no money and I don't need no pain.
I can't do this again.
I've seen that lightning flash
I've heard that thunder crash
I've gleaned the reason for your leaving
There is no turning back."
And as the shadows fall
I make one final call
For you...

Since I got back it hasn't been the same
I've been mopin' round at home
Without no heart, no brain
I cannot lose, nor gain
I've seen some whole days pass
With just an empty glass
And I ain't feelin' and healin'
I need some hope that lasts
And as the shadows fall
I make one final call
For you...

I'll make it back into your arms you'll see
And on the day I finally do
Will we then both be free?
To just be you and me?
I'll have cast off my ring
And told her everything
And as I'm leaving she'll be screaming
Still my heart will sing
But there is no chance at all
There is no final call
No you...
Track Name: If You Wanna Leave
Saddle up, gear up, get with me honey
We don't need no diamonds, flash gifts or money.
Hang that phone up
Baby, what's the hold up?
I've left the engine running and we've gotta leave.
'Cos you're not all alone
Like you think you are
So come on with me baby
And get in the car
You said you wanna leave
But you don't know how
I'm giving you the chance
So take it right now

'Cos you can run from home
(If you wanna leave)
You can run from home
(If you wanna leave)
You can run from home
(If you wanna leave)
You can run from home and be with me.
Track Name: (Untitled) Borrowed Time
Hello dear friends
You're back again and let me say
That I am glad
For while away
I spent each day
Slowly going mad.
I hear that some of you had gone away
And spent a few months out of town
Seeing flashy broadway shows
And acting like a clown.
While the rest of us just went to work
Or stayed at home, sick in our beds
Taking pills that get no thrills
Hoping to fix-
Fix our heads...

Sometimes I feel
So stuck at work
When I hear the city bells chime
I feel that I should live the life I want
'Cos we live on borrowed time
And now dear friends
Let's raise a toast
To the ones no longer here.
The times we shared both good and bad
Have long since dis-
Disappeared...
Track Name: Let It Show
Well I love how the light plays
Off your delicate frame
I never tire of you darling
Though everyday you're the same
And your smile is enchanting
So let it show,
So let it show and then
You disappear again
Into the ether my love.

When I wake in the morning
You're there to help greet the day
You're always hanging around me
But never get in my way
And your smile is enchanting
So let it show
So let it show and then
You disappear again
Into the ether my love.

And if you were taken from me
It's a burden I just couldn't bear
Because the brush strokes that made you
Are way beyond compare...

So I keep you in my room
Locked away out of sight
And though I'm told I should sell you
To me it doesn't feel right
'Cos your smile is enchanting
So let it show
So let it show and then
You disappear again
Into the ether my love.
And as the daylight fades,
Into the ether my love.
And as the daylight fades,
Into the ether my love.
Track Name: Darlin'
Seasons gone and air is sinking
I got high and I've been thinking gee,
We used to be.
Let's get bored and let's get stupid,
You play god and I'll play cupid
Boy, you really destroyed me
At night I'll be
Smokin' out the bedroom window 'cos air is free.
And I'll sing
Darlin', darlin', darlin'
Please forgive me
I'm in, I'm in
A world of hurtin', hurtin', hurtin
This sea of disease...

Every time I pulled you up on
Not loving me enough
Or well,
The mere sight of you could make me smile
I never gave you credit for all you did
You really were such a sweet, sweet kid
One day,
I hope you find a guy that makes you feel this way
'Cos I could never be
Ever really sure you felt that way for me...
So I'll sing
Darlin', darlin', darlin'
Please forgive me
I'm in, I'm in
A world of hurtin', hurtin', hurtin
This sea of disease
Is killing me.
Oh I'll sing
Darlin', darlin', darlin'
Was it worth it? Worth it. Worth it.
Each time you saw me?
And I couldn't breathe?

I'm so sorry I slept with her
But you'd gone and done the exact same thing with him
Well he was damn butt-ugly.
I know it must of been hard for you
I know it was such a hard thing for you
To say
I love you.
At night I'll be
Singing all these lonely lonesome songs for me
And I'll sing
Darlin', darlin', darlin'
Please forgive me
I'm in, I'm in
A world of hurtin', hurtin', hurtin'
The sea of disease
Is killing me.
Oh I'll sing
Darlin', darlin', darlin'
Was it worth it? Worth it. Worth it.
Each time you broke me?
Now I can't breathe?

I know it's not you and me but
Please, please, please, please
Please come back to me, oh...
Please, please, please, please
Please come back to me, oh...
Come back to me, oh...
Come back to me, oh...
Come back to me, oh...
Come back to me, oh...
Come back to me...oh...
Track Name: Mean Eddy
Eddy leaned against the car
Heels in the dirt as he lit a cigar
It was gettin' dark
Gettin' mad, he furrowed his brow
Checking the time as he stepped in the car
He was edgy now...

Two cars pulled in
And the sirens wailed
Eddy knew that his plan had failed
There was no way out.
The odds were set
It was 10:1.
A gambling man eddy grabbed his gun
Held the hammer down
Pulled the trigger back
And...

One, two...
Bullets flied and one cop died
Of a broken heart
Three, four...
Stung by lead
A mean Eddy bled,
He was torn apart...
Track Name: The Finer Points
Head in a cushion and a pallid face
(The moving walls, are closing in.)
I put my voice as high as hers
(Obscured by smoke, you cannot win.)

I wrote a letter for you tonight
It's hard to leave when it don't feel right
This could work if we tried twice as hard
But we won't know that if you play this card.

The finer points she gave so far
(She said these things from up on Mars)
Her words were stark and insular
(Her dying eyes were fading stars)

I wrote a letter for you tonight
It's hard to leave when it don't feel right
This could work if we tried twice as hard
But we won't know that if you play this card.

What part of this seems desirable?
(She turns her face towards the wall.)

I wrote a letter for you tonight
It's hard to leave when it don't feel right
This could work if we tried twice as hard
But we won't know that if you play this card.

I wrote a letter for you tonight
It's hard to leave when it don't feel right...
Track Name: Dante
I swear it on my name
I've never felt such pain as I feel now,
Locked out, alone
Beyond my city walls.

And damn this vile heat,
The sand it burns right through my feet,
It's wearing flesh down to the bone
And dust flows through my veins.

Yet I've never felt so alive.

Some men try to beat you
Lie and steal to cheat you.
It's just a lesson you will learn.
And on that final day when
Judgement comes their way then
They'll see they cannot cheat their turn.
Track Name: Never Take A Chance On You
Some people like a pretty words
In their songs
Others like a melody to sing along
Some people like a whirlwind romance
Some others like their love to feel like they're in a trance

But I'll never take a chance on you
'Cos I know I'll wind up, one day, feelin' blue.
You see now loving's not my kinda thing
Not matter how much joy it brings.
Track Name: It Just Don't Pay
Place yourself upon the canvas
Where you belong
Where you are doesn't matter
Once you've closed the door.

Take yourself from out of frame
And make a vow
That your life will have mattered
Once you've closed the door.

Oh one, two, three, four, five
It just doesn't pay to be alive
See, the numbers don't add up
You spend your whole life down
Trying to get up

Stimulate your appetite
Focus your mind
Sit tight until daybreak
And launch for the open sea.

Your mode of living tries too hard
Do you understand?
When happy gods bring on hard times
You feel that you're made of sand.

Oh, One, two, three, four, five
It just doesn't pay to be alive
See, the numbers don't add up
You spend your whole life down
Trying to get up

Oh, one, two, three, four, five
It just doesn't pay to be alive
See, the numbers don't add up
You spend your whole life down
Trying to get up
Your whole life down
Trying to get up
And I'll keep on trying
To get up...
