Track Name: Call Me
CALL ME
You didn’t want to go.
You told me. Looking at yourself a bit too close
But I think I know why you did
You need love

Put the darkness all behind you.
Try to forge a path ahead
And I think I know what you want
You want love

Call me anytime you want to.
Let me know you really care
When you reach your destination
I’ll be there, I’ll be there

Coming home you sounded different.
Hard to tell if that’s good or bad
Is it my reward or consolation? I don’t know

Call me anytime you want to.
Let me know you really care
When you reach your destination
I’ll be there, I’ll be there
Track Name: Little Piece
LITTLE PIECE
Waiting for the spring tide to cover up the rain that’s fallen
A little piece human. So fragile and strong

Never gonna play again
Never gonna run across the sand
The child inside has gone
Since I saw that tiny hand

Feeling disconnected from the fruit inside
Just give me water. My lips are so dry

Never gonna play again
Never gonna run across the sand
The child inside has gone
Since I saw that tiny hand

A little piece human. So fragile and strong
Track Name: Til I Do
TIL I DO
Here I sit in the clouds, looking down, pouring scorn
But that’s the way it is
And I won’t say “ I love you” ‘til I do

Feel my fury. Does it hurt? Does it mean anything?
You’re the grit for my pearl
And I won’t say “ I love you” ‘til I do

If you pay someone to listen long enough
Take the pills and not the other stuff
Then you’ll understand why it’s hard to hold your hand

If you lie in the gutter then there’s nowhere to fall
I said I’d go the distance
But I won’t say “ I love you” ‘til I do
Track Name: Twisted Spine
TWISTED SPINE
You ask me, “what’s the matter?”
How long have you got? I don’t know where to start
A twisted spine, a lazy eye, a murmur in my heart

Ooh, when you see me again with another man on my arm
Ooh, time won’t end ‘cos I found a friend of my own

Although you won’t remember, it wasn’t that bad
The best we’ve had so far
I won’t be there for your sad affair
I won’t care where you are

Ooh, when you see me again with another man on my arm
Ooh, time won’t end ‘cos I found a friend of my own
Track Name: Stone Cold Baby
STONE COLD BABY
Is there any middle ground? Something we could share?
‘Cos I don’t believe that anyone should do the things you do
You’re a stone cold baby

Always all for one. Never one for all.
Even if you’re small it’s true

Foxfire in the bushes. Whispers in the dark
And I can’t conceive that anyone would say the things you do
Such a stone cold baby

I don’t want to play your silly games
Soon you’ll only shoot me down in flames
And I don’t believe that anyone should do the things you do
You’re a stone cold baby
Track Name: Don't Pray for Me
DON”T PRAY FOR ME
When I was in uniform wasn’t I pretty?
When I was in uniform wasn’t I brave?
Didn’t I look grand with a gun in my hand
As I met with my downfall?

Beat the drum slowly and play the pipe only
Play up the dead march as we go along
Then take me home, I’m just a young soldier
And I’ve never done wrong

Don’t pray for me, makes no difference now
Don’t pray for me anymore

Six of your soldiers to carry my coffin
Lower me down in my own special hole
Throw bunches of roses to deaden the sound
Of the earth as it falls

Don’t pray for me, makes no difference now
Don’t pray for me anymore
Track Name: Something New
SOMETHING NEW
It’s eerily still in the flowery room and the dusty spiral turns
Be sure, let me know if you’re surfacing soon
Three black tears are all I have

Tell me something good
Tell me something new

They say the snow’s just waiting to fall, but it’s such a lovely day
If I look at the sun with a watery eye
I can see your garden grow

Tell me something good
Tell me something new

Different opinions
Crossing over soon
Track Name: Time For Us
TIME FOR US
What’s the use in talking? It doesn’t mean a thing
You didn’t buy my heart, just my diamond ring

Face it head on. The eye of the storm is passing over you
Do what you have to do

How can I be sure?
We’ve been this way before
Will we ever know when it’s time for us to go?

What’s the use in fighting? It doesn’t fix a thing
Don’t want to keep your heart, just my diamond ring

How can I be sure?
We’ve been this way before
Will we ever know when it’s time for us to go?
Track Name: Special Sound
SPECIAL SOUND
Always keeping calm among the chaos.
Mustn’t show anyone the mess I’m in
Broken crystals in pools of blood
Powerless but still beautiful

Must you speak in tongues? What you saying?
Say what’s on your mind for goodness sake
I rack my brains to try and understand you
Powerless but still beautiful

Clouds of disappointment gather round
Every time I hear your special sound
Track Name: Didn't I
DIDN’T I?
Cuts both ways and either way it hurts
There’s nothing left that words can say
Compromise. A welcome overstayed
A part that’s overplayed too long

Didn’t I make it better? Didn’t you feel the same?
Shouldn’t we be together?

There you go in the dirty rain
To cover up the pain you feel
Clever me. Survived another fall
The writing’s on the wall for you

Didn’t I make it better? Didn’t you feel the same?
Shouldn’t we be together?
Track Name: Fallen Angel
FALLEN ANGEL
There’s a baby in the bathroom, a lady on the shelf
It doesn’t seem unusual at all
A meaningless replay of other things somewhere between the lines

There’s no dignity in dying, only dignity in living
And the lying and forgiving comes for free
Is this a picnic or funeral? Somebody let me know

Say your prayers to Elvis
Jesus loves you anyway
Another fallen angel won’t be missed
See you on the other side
With nothing left to say
Always taste the whisky in the kiss

I wanna be there

Look at all the pilgrims who don’t know how to love
Worshipping a light that isn’t there
Here comes a shadow that brings the rain ,rising where they stand

Say your prayers to Elvis
Jesus loves you anyway
Another fallen angel won’t be missed
See you on the other side with nothing left to say
Always taste the whisky in the kiss

I wanna be there
