Track Name: Hey Little Baby
Hey little baby
What ya doing there looking so sweet?
I think I'd give my left hand just to get you in my passenger seat
You have got to be the sweetest thing I've ever had the pleasure to see
And when you flash that smile you don't know what you're doing to me
Hey little baby, what ya doing there looking so sweet?

Hey little girl
Can I take you back to my home?
You know it wouldn't be right for you to spend another night alone
I want to be the one to follow you wherever you may happen to go
And being with you is the only thing that soothes my soul
Hey little baby can I take you back to my home?

And now you're blowing my mind
And you're not even trying
Girl you are the feeling I've been trying to find
It's like I never lived before it
Now I'm ready to kill for it
I can do anything with you by my side
Track Name: The World Got You Down
All the good people of the world are out holding hands
Wearing their sweaters, buying drinks and asking for this dance
I used to believe them when they said "the best will come"
But now I don't feel so inspired and I don't feel so young

But darling, don't let me blow this
I will walk away like I didn't even notice

And I look for you like a soldier for a land mine
Each step I knew taking me closer still to hell
I looked at her when she told me she was dying
I stood there cool after always looking well
There we're nerves to be numbed
And songs to be sung
There was a minister's daughter for every criminal's son
And everything was fine
I threaded little white lies
When the world got you down I was out getting high

I lived it, breathed it, even started to believe it
But a good thing only goes so far
With your jean skirts, green shirts
Your daddy just made a speech at church
And your momma's killing time down at the bar

But darling, don't let me blow this
I will walk away
And I won't look back
I'd just forget it all
Like I didn't even notice
Track Name: She Sings The Blues
Honey the sound of your voice stops me dead in my tracks
Rattles on my heart strings and takes me back
You sound just like a spirit I used to know
Just can't believe to take that thing everywhere you go

And all you got to do is open up and let it out
When I hear that sound there ain't nothing else that counts
You know I go out wandering when I think I hear it at night
With my ear to the wind and my eyes all glazed over white

Well I walk all the way from the farm to the city
The way you play with me sometimes it's a pity
Cause then the sun comes up and I don't hear you anymore
Sometimes I wonder what you send me wandering for

When you've already got me wrapped around your thumb
You don't even have to call my name and I'll come
Just promise me baby, someday when the thrill is gone
Tell me honey, you won't stop singing them songs

And I'll love you until the day I die
You sing the blues sometimes I want to cry
You know you make a mess out of me with a sad melody
Keep on singing like that and you know I'll never leave

My baby sings the blues
In the middle of the night
Think I hear her on the wind sometimes…
Track Name: Left To Chance
Well you will never know the way
That you make my spirit ache everyday
And the weight upon my soul
You could simply never know when I see your face
There ain't a whole lot I can do
Now that I caught a glimpse of you

Though you may never understand
Why you hold me in your hand the way you do
And all that I can say
is that I've tried to get away but honey I need you
I could never leave you
There ain't no place I want to go
And there's one thing you should know . . .

That I've thought a lot about you girl
There isn't much that I have left to chance
And I know I'll never find no one like you
I can't let you slip through my hands
And you've said this to other boys
I've said this to other girls before
But this is love, I'm sure
Track Name: Do Some Damage Tonight
Won't you come with me my friend?
I got somewhere to go
I could do it myself I guess
But I'd rather not be alone
And if I tell it to you like it is
You won't get all uptight
No you won't raise an eyebrow
At the damage I do tonight

Sometimes I get happy
From the smallest pile of dirt
Some days I can't see the light
For all that I'm worth
So please forgive me if I refrain
From doing what I know to be right
And after all you know I will
Do some damage tonight

So please forgive me if I refrain
From doing what I know to be right
And after all you know I will
Do some damage tonight
Track Name: Can't Escape The Airwaves
I'd really love to come to the phone
But right now I'm a little tied down
And I'd really love to take you to a movie or to dinner
Or maybe just one or the other
But I would understand if you're a little bit unsure
And I you know think you know
What it is I'm looking for
And you watch me as I'm breaking now

Girl I think you know
What side your bread is buttered
On the radio
You won't find any other fools
Who love you
Like I do
No other
And anywhere you'll go
I think you'll see it's true
Ain't nobody love you quite the same way as I do

I'd really love to look you in the eye
But right now I just haven't got the time
And I'd really love to take you for a long walk on the beach
I'd like to keep you in my reach
Cause I've still got a lot to learn
And you've still got a lot to teach
So if I keep you here with me
Will I finally make you see
Just what it is that I believe in now
Track Name: See Through
I got some tears/ but no eye balls
Nobody hears/ me when I call
And no one cares what I do
Cause I’m see through
I got problems/ all the time man
Before you knock em/ you ought to try them
There’s worse things I could do
Than be see through

I may be hollow but at least I still got some soul
You ain’t got nothing and nothing’s got you
And it’s not going to let go

I don’t hold/ on to nothing
The world around me/ is always crumbling
Things just come unglued
When you’re see through

Stomp me out but I come right back like a weed
Until one day I don’t come back at all
Yes that’s one fine day indeed

Before you beat me/ you gotta see me
But you can’t see me/ till you can be me
But you could never do what I do
Cause I’m see through
I’m gonna wreck you/ you’re gonna hate me
You can run but/ you can’t escape me
And the blame is gonna fall on you
Cause I’m see through

And you can’t blame a man
Who don’t even exist like you do
I don’t exist like you do
Track Name: Say Goodbye
Say goodbye girl I’m a dying man
Say goodbye girl I’m a dying man
Well I won’t be round for long
So love me while you can

How’s it gonna happen I really don’t know
Only thing for certain is one day I got to go
And I ain’t lying so won’t you kiss me little girl?
I got a bad bad feeling I ain’t got long for this world

I ain’t no saint
The good lord he knows it’s true
But I don’t do the worse things
That a sinnin’ man might do
I just love looking at the girls
And mama I’m looking dead at you

Don’t know exactly what it is I’m dying from
Don’t know exactly when my time is gonna come
But it's coming so won't you kiss me little girl?
I got a bad bad feeling I ain’t got long for this world

God knows I love the drink
Been know to take it a bit too far
God knows I love the smoke
You’ll find me in that smokey bar
And God knows I love the girls
Want one on each of my arms

Say goodbye girl I’m a dying man
Say goodbye girl I’m a dying man
Well I won’t be round for long
So love me while you can
Track Name: Crimes Of Passion
I could be the meanest thing you've ever seen
Plucked from some bad dream
Cut down to a tee
And when you need me I'll be miles away
Breaking in the day
Drying out my armor in the sun
Just in case tomorrow comes

I fancy myself well acquainted with this game
Compared with the next man I've got just as much to say
But such nice words should mean that something's going to change
And we know it can't be done because we've both tried to refrain

From these crimes of passion
Breaking me down
With these crimes of passion
Nobody's fault just
Crimes of passion

Witnesses are few and far between
No one will testify to what it is they've seen
In my own recollection it might all have been a dream
And the way that these things happen are not the way they seem

I feel the guilt for all the things I haven't done
I get offended when I overstay my welcome
I wish you'd see I've never been so out of touch
And maybe then you'd be aware that I can only take so much

Of these crimes of passion
Nothing personal just
Crimes of passion
Everyday more
Crimes of passion
Breaking me down with these
Crimes of passion

The little things we do to each other
Just to find a way to hide from one another
But sooner or later someone always blows our cover
It don't matter how clean we are, we'll always be discovered

For these crimes of passion
Breaking me down with these
Crimes of passion
Nothing personal just
Crimes of passion
Nobody's fault just
Crimes of passion
Track Name: Can't Get In
You trampled all my roses as you stumbled through the dark
I know it wasn't your intention, you just can't hear your footsteps over the beating of your heart
Hang on now, don't get so down, why don't you give it one more try?
And the next time you get scared you've got to promise not to close your eyes

Well I'm about as tough as fairy dust and I don't need too much sleep
If you can deal with my moods I can make you love me
When I stumble on myself please don't ask if I'm alright
And if you just can't seem to win I think that I could sympathize

You gave me a taste of the good life now I’m stuck here wanting more
With the taste still on my tongue how could I go back to where I was before
I don't know if I'm just hungry or if I feel my patience wearing thin?
Cause I've been knocking on your door forever but I just can't get in
Track Name: I'm Gonna Be Your Lover
Well I've made up my mind
I'm gonna be your lover
You know I get what I want
One way or another
So we can do this the hard way
Or go easy on each other

Go on and tell your mother
That you got a new man
When she asks about the other
Tell her he can't do what I can
And she can meet me next summer
When I come through with the band

I'm gonna be your lover
I'm gonna be your lover
Go on and tell your mother
I'm gonna be your lover

Won't keep it under cover
There ain't no way that I can
I feel like melted butter
I can hardly stand
My legs feel like rubber
When I'm holding your hand

I'm gonna be your lover
I'm gonna be your lover
Go on and tell your mother
I'm gonna be your lover

Won't keep it under cover
There ain't no way that I can
My legs feel like rubber
When I'm holding your hand
I feel like melted butter
I can hardly stand

I'm gonna be your lover
I'm gonna be your lover
Go and tell your mother
I'm gonna be your lover
Track Name: End Of The World Blues
The sun is going down
Real, real down tonight
And the beasts won't get no sleep
They'll be running through the streets
Carrying the tune
And if it sounds a bit familiar
Don't be alarmed, I recognize it too
And I'm so glad that I can share this with you

So try to relax
I'm just giving you the facts
You know I wouldn't say it if it weren't true
So buddy get a grip on my
End of the world blues

Some people say I've got an evil mind
Just cause I'm good at my job
They're always screaming
How they were cheated out of something
If you ask em
They're gonna tell you they we’re robbed
But don't blame me
For being a good spokesman
I just sing the news
I had no hand in the plan
No, none at all

It's not the end
It's something even better
You may not have heard it yet
But it's been playing forever
Someday the whole world
Is gonna sing it together
There ain't no avoiding it
So don’t you try to be clever

And don't be afraid
Come and join the parade
And you can help to spread the bad news
And maybe even take a verse
Of my end of the world blues
Won't you help me
To sing my end of the world blues
Track Name: Don't Want To Know Me Anymore
Well you probably wouldn't recognize me since I headed out to the coast
I had Beverly Hills finest surgeons do a little number on my soul
I've got the perfect dimensions to get on top
I've got a lust for money that will never stop
And I'm not much like the guy I was before
Well you probably don't want to know me anymore

Crashed my car down by the beach the other day
But I patched the windows up and got a place to stay
I've got the perfect place to go out at night
And when you see me you'll know that I'm not quite
The infidel that I used to be
Not even I like hanging out with me

All my friends got plastic surgery, just like me
We all hate our identities
It's the fight for popularity I know now can't be won
But it's all over now
It's said and done
And I'm so sick of the person I become
