Track Name: Loner
LONER

I was knockin‘ on Heaven’s door
But there was nobody home
So I set my suitcases down on the floor
And I knew I was alone
I was alone
I was alone

Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone

I always tried my best to be like the rest
But I was sinking like a stone
They beat me up, they tied me down,
And they worked me to the bone
To the bone …
Yeah to the bone
Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone


I had some dreams but not any more
Just a big pile of ashes on a cold stone floor
Cos I spent too long hangin’ out with the devil
Every kind of way on every kind of level
I gave him my soul for the price of a pint
And I thought oh yeah that’s cool
I gotta ask was I born to lose
Or did I just pick it up at school?

I was knock knock knockin’ on heaven’s door
But there was nobody home
Just a voice in my head and all it said was
“You should have known”


Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone
Heaven help me now
There’s no way home
And whatever I’m standing for
I stand alone
Track Name: Different
Different

Got a different story, got a different game
It’s a different picture with a different frame
In a different country with a different name
But my crazy heart keeps breakin' just the same

Can’t shake it loose - can’t let it be
The life we shared is the death of me
I laugh and sing like the others do
But when I cry, I cry for you

Took a different ride on a different train
Threw my chances down a different drain
Got a different ball now and a different chain
And my crazy heart keeps breakin’ just the same

Got a different story, got a different game
Now I’m burning to a different flame
In a different country with a different name
But my crazy heart keeps breakin' just the same

Can’t move on – not any more
Can’t go back where I was before
I got no prospects and I got no plans
I left my future in your dirty hands….

Took a different ride on a different train
Threw my chances down a different drain
Got a different ball now and a different chain
But my crazy heart keeps breakin' just the same
Track Name: Flame
FLAME

I burn so bad
When I touch that flame
I've only got
Myself to blame
Can't let it go
Can't let it be

Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me

I gotta look
And I gotta touch
I go too far
And I want too much
But I've been places
You'll never see

Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me

Could have had it all
But I could not stay
Somethin' always told me
Gotta get away
It broke my heart
But at least I'm free

Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me

Track Name: The Devil Looks After His Own
The Devil Looks After his Own


Walkin’ barefooted cross broken glass
can’t see too straight Im going much too fast
Got an aching head and a bleeding heart
One step further and I’m into the dark……

Driven to desperate measures
Driven right up to the edge
Seeking desperate pleasures
Now it’s time for me to jump the ledge

And I’ll never be alone
And I”ll never be alone
And I’ll never be on my own my own my own
The devil looks after his own

Curiosity has got the better of me,
I can’t keep away from the dirt
I never understood that it would come to no good
Or how much it could hurt

Don’t you ever ask me about where I’ve been
There’s a stain, there’s a stain that’ll never wipe clean
Something I did, something I knew
Something always comes between me and you
But I’ll never be alone
I”ll never be alone
And I’ll never be on my own my own my own
The devil looks after his own
