LYRICS

RUMOURS

You mean nothing to me
You're just a distant memory
A void in my brain
A space that needs some filling


I don't want to be the one
To break the news to you
You know there's only one way
You know there's only one truth


Rumours are the lies I could do without
You know what goes around gets back to you
Rumours are the lies you told I know
Is this all for me you have to show


You don't know when to stop
So put down the mop, stop cleaning
The stains they won't disappear
But I wish you would from here


Rumours are the lies I could do without
You know what goes around gets back to you
Rumours are the lies you told I know
Is this all for me you have to show


BLACK SHEEP

Your branded with a name
Now your family share the same fate
For something they did not do
For something they did not do

 
How many lives do you have to ruin?

How many lives do you have to ruin?
Do you give a damn do you give a fuck
 Cause you and I are running out of luck


What are you going to do?
What are you going to say?


How many lives do you have to ruin?
How many lives do you have to ruin?


Who are you? Who are you? 
Long gone, I'm long gone now

SETTLE DOWN

Sell, sell, settle down
In a quiet cottage
In a quiet part of town


The bills they keep stacking up
And I think I'm cracking up
Trying to keep my head above
The water-line


If you take a right
At the end of the road
Turn right again
Down the rabbit hole
You'll find a place for you
Is there room for me?


I need you, want you to stay
Through thick and thin 
I know we'll find a way
it'll be okay


If you take a right
At the end of the road
Turn right again
Down the rabbit hole
You'll find a place for you
Is there room for me?


A NEW DAY BREAKS AT DAWN

Broken down and busted up
I saw bad news in my paper cup
Which way to turn and turn 
I did not know
I think I found a new low


I'd lost faith in the Man above
Cause even He 
He could not teach me love, no
I was the one always running away
Now I live my life 


Ooh, and you try so very hard
Why won't you take me away from here
Keep on moving on
Hold yourself up and keep strong
Cause it won't take long 
Until a new day breaks at dawn


Until the day, the day that changed it all
She showed me what was good in all
The things that I write, or the things that I say
May not seem right to you but that's okay


Ooh, and you try so very hard
Why won't you take me away from here
Keep on moving on
Hold yourself up and keep strong
Cause it won't take long 
Until a new day breaks at dawn


WATER

You get so far and you must stop 
To get some food to eat
And to rest you weary feet
You need to before you carry on
 Before you move along


Cause you need water


You get so far and you must rest
When sense prevails then you know 
What's best for you
You need to before you carry on 
Before you move along


Cause you need water 



THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER

Baby it is not the same
Maybe we're just playing games
We're going round in circles
I think you and me both know
Where this is going


I don't know what to do
Been sitting round thinking 'bout you
I just want to talk with you
What else can I do?


The heart is, the heart is a lonely hunter
Your wicked games don't play with me
The heart is, the heart is a lonely hunter
Your wicked games don't play with me
Don't play with me I can see right through you
A lonely hunter


All the time we wasted
I waited a thousand times on you
I'd do it again tomorrow
I'd do it all again for you


 The heart is, the heart is a lonely hunter
Your wicked games don't play with me
The heart is, the heart is a lonely hunter
Your wicked games don't play with me
Don't play with me I can see right through you
A lonely hunter


FIFTY-SIX SHADES OF GREY

People moan and they complain
If it's not about the state of the town
It's the rain and I'm tired of hearing 
That poor argument, time and time again


The simple life is what I lead
This simple life was in my head
But it is all gone,

terribly wrong

 

Fifty-six shades of grey
The rain couldn't wash away
But it's gone, ooh, it's gone
What do I do now, When I look around


Some people will never leave the race
Never get out, never find their place
In life, never strive, let life pass them by


Fifty-six shades of grey
The rain couldn't wash away
Fifty-six shades of grey
The rain couldn't wash away


ANOTHER YEAR IS OVER

The cold dark season is upon us 
And nothing is changed
Except for the wind, maybe
And every year I get older I feel 
The cold a little more
It's the same, it's the same as before 


But there is a light
There is a light up ahead
It's burning bright 
It's burning, it's burning bright


The clocks go back and time's messed up
I'm weary, my body is fucked up
Go to bed and it's dark
Get up and it's dark
This isn't life, it's a sentence to me
Multiplied by three


But there is a light
There is a light up ahead
It's burning bright 
It's burning, it's burning bright


SLOW IT DOWN

You say you never got a fair shot at life
Always stood out in class clutching a knife
That you took from home


Slow it down
Slow it right down


You say your life is made up of missed opportunities
That even the clever could but wouldn't see
Thats what you told me


Slow it down
Slow it right down


FROM ACROSS THE SEA

From across the Irish Sea my heart bleeds
For this country that lacks direction 
And is lost out at sea


We are all on this one, one small island
And we can't live the way we did 
There's been too much blood split in vain

What have we got?
 What have we achieved? 
Nothing at all, Nothing at all


We're bound by our history
Not supposed to be living out our history
Stop living in the past, and start looking on


Religion causes some to hate
So turn your head and suffocate 
These thoughts are not your own
When innocent lives are lost
For what, at what cost?
When we ever learn?


All I know and all I see
Are people the same as me
Who just want to get along

When innocent lives are lost

For what, at what cost?

When will we stop repeating 

Repeating, repeating our history


F SHARP ORGAN 

This is my come down,

this is my last request

Hear me out,

side with me



DON'T LET ANYONE 

Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough 

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good 


Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough 

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good 


You are of what you're made it's cause of you I crave 

Hasn't anyone ever told you, how beautiful you are


Your golden hair and your silver heels

When you fell asleep behind the wheel 

And from that moment on

My heart you did steal away


Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough 

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good 



WON'T YOU COME OUT 

The Spring ends

The Summer brings out the bees 

And the birds are gathered in the trees 

They all seem to shout 


Won't you come out,

won't you come out now 

Won't you come out to play,

with me today 


There's no place

I'd rather be than with you on my knee 

On the dunes, hidden 'neath the grass 

Down by the sea 


Won't you come out,

won't you come out now 

Won't you come out to play,

with me today 


Come on and give me a try

You'll find out when and why 

Won't you come out to play 

There's no reason just a beautiful day 


Won't you come out,

won't you come out now 

Won't you come out to play,

with me today 


USE YOUR HEAD 

They say it is alright to fight,

If you fight to win and never give in 

You better watch out 

Or else you will never make it out of here


You paint such a pretty picture, 

of what's going down

It's for the people you say

And they lap it up only for you 

To spit it out again 


So use your head, don't lose your head 

Don't be a fool


I disagree with the words you say 

Fight and live another day is not the way 

Whoever told you was having you on 

Pulling your leg playing you for the fool 


So use your head, don't lose your head 

Don't be a fool


IT'S NOT RIGHT 

You should never hold back what you are trying to say 

Come forward, someone's got to pay


It's not right, but it's okay 

It's not right, but it's okay 


It's no use when you are gone, to keep holding on

To what you've got, when all you got is hurt


It's not right, but it's okay

It's not right, but it's okay 


It's not right, but it's okay

It's not right, but it's okay


BACKSEAT OF A CAR 

An angel with a dirty face 

How long will it take for you

To fall from grace 

To fall from grace


How many more times must I tell you 

I must, I must

I must say no to you 


You've been found out 

Look who's looking scared 

Exposed for who you really are 

In the backseat of a car 


How many more times must I tell you

I must, I must

I must say no to you 


When you calm down 

Won't you drop by and see me 

You know the truth hurts and I could not tell you

I would not tell you 


How many more times must I tell you

I must, I must

I must say no to you

How many more times must I tell you 

I must, I must 

I must say no to you


CASINO PIER

Who are you to say?
Fuck 'em all anyway
Who are you to judge? 
When you cannot be judged


Who are you to send us here
To this halfway house?
It’s because
We make you feel down


All the money that you made
Is no good
You can’t take it to your grave
It’s your soul, it’s your soul 
That can’t be saved
It’s too late.


Always taking
Never giving back
Hey man!
Won’t you please get off my back


What would i do
If i got a hold of you?
I’d make you pay
for all the shit you threw my way


All the money that you made
Is no good
You can’t take it to your grave
It’s your soul, it’s your soul 
That can’t be saved
It’s too late.


If they're gonna pull you down?
If they're gonna drag you around?
Don't let it happen to you
It's already happened me


Who are you to send us here
To casino pier?


WORDS WRITTEN

It's an itch its a rash, it's a burn and it stings

But you can't wash it off 

You're going to have to wait and see 

You wait and see 


You're the devil

You're the devil

You're the devil


There's a sense of joy when the pain goes away 

But it's not going to last beyond tomorrow and a day 

It's here to stay 

It's here to stay


You're the devil

You're the devil

You're the devil


Is it all in my head? it can't be

The scratch marks on my skin 

It pains me, it's gotten under my skin 

It's inside of me


You're the devil

You're the devil

You're the devil



PLAYGROUND LOVE 

Don't you know that from the first time 

That I saw you, I just had to have you near 

To be around you, to befriend you,

To be all you want me to be but it's impossible 

That's not how I'm made 


I don't mind telling you that I am finding it hard 

Not seeing you every day and every way 

In every shape and form I'm missing you, 

I'm missing you


You're my playground love 

You're my playground love 

That's what you mean to me 


Long distance relationships were like sinking ships to me

Not worth a hope in Hell they were lost on me 

Long distance relationships were like sinking ships to me 

Not worth a hope in Hell, they were lost on me 


You're my playground love 

You're my playground love 

That's what you mean to me 



ONE DAY OF THE YEAR

Come on in, the water is warm 

Your back's on fire 

We are not made for the sun 

Our pink skin will burn 


It's the one day of the year

It's the one day of the year 

It's the one day of the year 

We get to see the sun 


Making sandcastles on the beach 

And out of reach from the rising tide 

The old and the young are here

Everyone except you my dear 


It's the one day of the year 

It's the one day of the year 

It's the one day of the year 

We get to see the sun 



SEPTEMBER 

The crowded streets, the sirens wail 

Here's to New York, New York 

They drop, out of the sky 

We stand and watch as these people die 

All we can do is ask why 

Why do they drop out of the sky? 


September, I can't remember 

Anything good about September 


New York, New York brought down 

On it's knees by some cruel plight 

The brothers, they have fallen 

These people are calling out for your head 

Revenge is sweet you often repeat 

But nothing you can do 

Will bring those people back to you 


September, I can't remember 

Anything good about September
