Track Name: So Far So Bad
|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

Track Name: Bitch Like You
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….

Track Name: Red Wine, Gold Rings
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

Track Name: Stay Out Of It
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

Track Name: Serve with Tears
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

Track Name: Second Skin
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

Track Name: You Don't Rock No More
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

Track Name: Watch Me Fall
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

Track Name: Party Animal
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

Track Name: I'm Alive, You're Dead
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

Track Name: Farewell
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
