|So Far So Bad So far so bad so long so late So help me God cause I just can’t wait I can see the light at the end of the road Wanna smash your lock, wanna crack your code Wanna touch the flame, wanna feel the heat Wanna feel the wheels underneath my feet Hold on baby I can’t stop now Hold on baby I can’t stop now Got things to say I got stories to tell Take you anywhere from here to hell Give me your love, give me back my pride Give me the keys, c’mon lets ride Hold on baby I can’t stop now Hold on baby I can’t stop now So far so bad so long so late So help me God cause I just can’t wait Wanna touch the flame, wanna feel the heat Wanna feel the wheels underneath my feet Hold on baby I can’t stop now Hold on baby I can’t stop now Hold on baby I can’t stop now Hold on baby I can’t stop now Kathy Freeman 2002

Bitch like you I know your story I know your game But this is different darling It's not the same So get back in the sewer Where you came from You might find some fool Who wants to belong To a bitch like you She looked straight through me Like I wasn't even there She never knew me She didn't care But you better move on Cause here I am Or is that too difficult To understand? For a bitch like you You're worth so little But you want so much Well I got something You couldn't even touch You're out of your depth You're out of your mind If you think for a minute I'd leave it behind For a bitch like you A bitch like you A bitch like you A bitch like you….

Red Wine, Gold Rings Teardrops by the bucketful and heartaches by the score Dialled that lucky number but it don’t pick up no more Won’t somebody tell me where it all went wrong Where have all the good times gone? Red wine … gold rings….white lace … pretty things Had all the colours I could ever choose Ended up with nothin’ but the blues I thought we had a future and I thought we had a plan I thought what crazy lovers must have thought since time began I thought you’d give me somethin you never even had Well, that’s just too bad Red wine … gold rings….white lace…and pretty things I had all the colours I could ever choose Ended up with nothin’ but the blues This road is getting darker as it rolls towards the end I thought you’d ride it with me, I thought you were my friend I threw away my blessings and I threw away my time On a tie that would never bind Red wine … gold rings….white lace…and pretty things Red wine … gold rings….white lace…and pretty things Red wine … gold rings….white lace…and pretty things I had all the colours I could ever choose Ended up with nothin’ but the blues Copyright Kathy Freeman 2011

Stay out of it I saw your face - Looking at me I saw your face - This should not be I saw your face - What’s it doing here? I saw your face - Make it disappear I’m not part of your life no more You’re out of time I’m not part of your world Stay out of mine Stay out of it I saw your face - But I don’t forgive I saw your face - Not as long as I live I saw your face - Let’s not make amends I saw your face - But I’m not your friend I’m not part of your life no more You’re out of time I’m not part of your world Stay out of mine Stay out of it Now you see me, now you don’t Now you catch me, now you won’t This time round I’m holding the wheel This time round I got a better deal This time round you can’t break my wings This time round I’m doing better things I’m not part of your life no more You’re out of time I’m not part of your world Stay out of mine Stay out of it Copyright Kathy Freeman 2011

Serve with tears Take a bunch of broken promises And throw them on the fire Add a drop of sorrow As you watch the flames grow higher Sweeten with oblivion And serve with tears That’s the recipe for all my wasted years Some folk are trouble from the start They break your wings and then they break your heart I saw it coming way too late The pretty face that sealed my ugly fate. So take a bunch of broken promises And throw them on the fire Add a drop of sorrow As you watch the flames grow higher Sweeten with oblivion And serve with tears That’s the recipe for all my wasted years I had a dream, I had a plan But I never left one footprint in the sand Somewhere down the line I lost the way Now this is all I have to say… So take a bunch of broken promises And throw them on the fire Add a drop of sorrow As you watch the flames grow higher Sweeten with oblivion And serve with tears That’s the recipe for all my wasted years Copyright Kathy Freeman 2010

Second Skin 02:49
Second Skin Misery…..creepin’ up on me Won’t let me live, won’t let me love, won’t let me be Misery…..anytime, anywhere It doesn’t matter who you are, she doesn’t care I spent too long too close to her, she fits me like a second skin I asked her what she wanted, she said “Everything” Misery….I gotta know What would it take to make you break and let me go? Misery…..what have you done? You took the sky and you painted out the sun I spent too long too close to her, she fits me like a second skin I could have stayed away from trouble but I said “Come on in – let’s have a party” Misery…..look what you’ve done You took the sky and you painted out the sun Copyright Kathy Freeman 2012

YOU DON’T ROCK NO MORE Back when you were skin and bone You followed me I took you home I still see your pretty face It’s out of time and out of place And if you cut and run baby that’s ok Cause I won’t be coming after you anyway Never gonna make it like before You don’t rock no more Now you won’t come out to play Girlfriend threw your toys away Ain’t got time for all that jive Work your butt off nine to five And if you cut and run baby that’s ok Cause I won’t be coming after you anyway Never gonna make it like before You don’t rock no more You had your fun, well thanks a lot I make the best of what I’ve got Sing and dance and tell a joke Watch my dreams go up in smoke And if you cut and run baby that’s ok Cause I won’t be coming after you anyway Never gonna make it like before You don’t rock no more Back when you were skin and bone You followed me I took you home You followed me through fire and ice Have a nice day and don’t think twice And if you cut and run baby that’s ok Cause I won’t be coming after you anyway You don’t rock no more You don’t rock no more Copyright Kathy Freeman 2007

Watch me fall I took a walk, a little walk I didn't get too far I thought about the things we said And I wondered where you are I took a ride, a little ride Back into the past The flame we had was much too bright To ever last And its three steps to heaven I've tried them all Steps one and two were wasted on you Step number three - Watch me fall I took a walk a little walk Down where the river flows I took a walk a little walk Where nobody goes And its three steps to heaven I've tried them all Steps one and two were wasted on you Step number three - Watch me fall I took a walk a little walk I didn't get too far I thought about the life we led And I wondered where you are You always hurt the one you love And you loved me to the end You took me higher than I've ever been But you could never be my friend And its three steps to heaven I've tried them all Steps one and two I wasted on you Step number three - Watch me fall Kathy Freeman 2005

Party Animal 02:37
Party Animal You’re a party animal You always will be You don’t look for trouble But it always finds you With your double standards And your tunnel vision It’s your delusion It\s your religion You will always see what you wanna see But the party’s over for you and me Hear no evil See no wrong It’s a different story It’s the same old song When you ride the lightning You don’t catch the thunder You can drop your standards Till they’re six feet under You will always see what you wanna see But the party’s over for you and me You’re a party animal You’re a party vegetable You don’t look for trouble But it always finds you And there are no secrets Around this scene Because wherever you go Someone’s been You will always see what you wanna see And you will always be what you wanna be But the party’s over for you and me Forever Copyright Kathy Freeman 2007

I’m Alive – You’re Dead Look back down the years, it’s a long long time Since you screwed around with this heart of mine That was way back when, how could I know Just how this thing would go A cold wind blows on the street today The birds don’t sing and the kids don’t play They said that you were never found No trace, no clue, no sight, no sound I’m alive….you’re dead I’m alive….you’re dead I’m alive….you’re dead I did what I did cause of what you said The best is long since over The worst is yet to come Your ghost is still accusing me Of stuff I’ve never done A cold wind blows on the street today The birds don’t sing and the kids don’t play Your door was open, nothing gone As if you’d be back before too long I’m alive….you’re dead I’m alive….you’re dead I’m alive….you’re dead I did what I did cause of what you said I saw your face in a photograph I had to wonder why Much too soon to rest in peace Too late, too late, to say goodbye I’m alive….you’re dead I’m alive….you’re dead I’m alive….you’re dead I did what I did cause of what you said I do what I do cause of what you said I am what I am cause of what you said I’m alive Kathy Freeman 2007

Farewell 04:33
Farewell This fairytale wedding is drawing to a close It isn’t what we wanted, it isn’t what I chose But the hardest thing I ever did was walking out on you I took a taxi to my sister’s place, she said what else could you do? Farewell ….Farewell Farewell ….Farewell I still remember you lyin’ there, the curtains drawn Six-pack on the table, stuff all over the floor I saw your desperation, I saw your pain I shared your darkest moments but I never will again Farewell…. Farewell Farewell ….Farewell Don’t know why I fell so hard, or why I got so deep But if I live for ever, I’ll still be cryin’ in my sleep Farewell…. Farewell Farewell ….Farewell Kathy Freeman 2006
