Track Name: I'm On The Run
I’m On the Run

You’re quick to judge the way I live my life
You’re just a victim to your wicked device
I say I see black you tell me to see white
I say I see dark you tell me just to see the light


Whisky in my pocket and I’m on the run got fire in my heart gonna let it burn
Try my luck on the sunset strip and find myself a harlot with a stiff upper lip
The only card for which I got time is the credit card I use to cut my line
Take my money you can take my life you’re two sharp sides of a switch blade knife

You ask why I prefer a whisky haze
It ain’t ideal but its better than countin’ days
No pleasure cruise I don’t enjoy
You’re two sides of a counterfeit coin

Whisky in my pocket and I’m on the run got fire in my heart gonna let it burn
Try my luck on the sunset strip and find myself a harlot with a stiff upper lip
The only card for which I got time is the credit card I use to cut my line
Take my money you can take my life you’re two sharp sides of a switch blade knife
Track Name: Shit I've Fallen in Love Again
Shit, I’ve Fallen in Love Again

Many times I tried to hit the ground running
But inside all I feel is the burning yeah
Don’t care for me
Too blind to see
TO see what’s happening to me

Well its the same old story
Its the same old song and dance
No difference between now and then
Its the same old fucking story
Same old song and dance
Shit I’ve fallen in love again

All I try to do’s a bit of easy livin’
But outta me the whores make a killin’
I don’t care for you
Or what you try to do
What you try to do to me

Well its the same old story
Its the same old song and dance
No difference between now and then
Its the same old fucking story
Same old song and dance
Shit I’ve fallen in love again

And I get sick of the same old face
Couldn’t give a fuck about this place
So let be be
Just gotta get outta here
I just need a way to leave

Well its the same old story
Its the same old song and dance
No difference between now and then
Its the same old fucking story
Same old song and dance
Shit I’ve fallen in love again
Track Name: Livia
Livia
They say that cocaine is the rich man’s drug
Have you sayin’ somethin’ stupid like I’ve fallen in love
A little glass of whisky down the QMU
And suddenly your head starts gettin’ to you

If I was sober I’d see you wasting my time
See that I’d been hung out to dry on a line
Take a little look inside and you might find
You thought you’d lost your heart but you just lost your mind

Livia you’re driving me insane
Chase my tail I’m playin’ a loser’s game
Climbin’ walls cos I can’t understand
Looks like I’ve been dealt the dead man’s hand

Eight a.m my head’s like the hammer from hell
Half alive or half dead oh I can’t tell
Sunlight comin’ in like a bolt through my brain
And my heart’s still goin’ like a runaway train

If I was sober I’d see you wasting my time
See that I’d been hung out to dry on a line
Take a little look inside and you might find
You thought you’d lost your heart but you just lost your mind

Livia you’re driving me insane
Chase my tail I’m playin’ a loser’s game
Climbin’ walls cos I can’t understand
Looks like I’ve been dealt the dead man’s hand

Lookin’ back now I feel a bit like a fool
I let you walk over me without you tryin’ to
You were a part of my heart but now you’re just a line on my face
I’m movin’ on up and gettin’ outta this place

If I was sober I’d see you wasting my time
See that I’d been hung out to dry on a line
Take a little look inside and you might find
You thought you’d lost your heart but you just lost your mind

Livia you’re driving me insane
Chase my tail I’m playin’ a loser’s game
Climbin’ walls cos I can’t understand
Looks like I’ve been dealt the dead man’s hand
Track Name: Cold Bitch Blues
Cold Bitch Blues

Why’d you try and understand what’s goin’ on in my head
Told you you’d be better off lovin’ someone else instead
Why’d you try to do it were you afraid of bein’ alone
Well honey I realised that I’m better off on my own

Why’d you do what you do
Had me doin’ whatever you wanted me to
Left me like some kinda fool
Left me with them old cold bitch blues

You as good as told me that I couldn’t play the guitar
And that I waste my time wishin’ upon them stars
You don’t like my music or any of the clothes I wear
Why didn’t you tell me sooner that you just didn’t care

Why’d you do what you do
Had me doin’ whatever you wanted me to
Left me like some kinda fool
Left me with them old cold bitch blues

What will I be doin’ when you find another man
I’ll be sittin’ home alone cryin’ tryin’ to understand
Maybe I’ll just go back to my dirty old ways
No point livin’ clean now that you have gone away

Why’d you do what you do
Had me doin’ whatever you wanted me to
Left me like some kinda fool
Left me with them old cold bitch blues
Track Name: I Know You're Hurting Tonight
I Know You’re Hurting Tonight

I can’t stand seeing you hurt I can feel the cuts but I can hear you breathing
I know you are torn inside and I’d hold back the tides just to see you healing
I’ll help you to be strong when you feel you can’t hang on I’ll dry your eyes
I’ll always be around when you’re feeling down you don’t have to hide

Oh I can see in every tear you cry I know you’re hurting tonight
And I will be there when the sun goes down to make everything alright
To be by your side when you feel alone I’ll hold you through the night
Inspiration’s what you are to me so don’t hold all the hurt inside

I know you think it’s your fault I can tell you that it’s not and I want you to know
That I will never lie you’re an angel in my eyes and I want it to show
Let me take some of the pain let the sunshine dry the rain and there’s nothing I won’t do
Through the hell of denial just to see your smile and you know I’ll be true

Oh I can see in every tear you cry I know you’re hurting tonight
And I will be there when the sun goes down to make everything alright
To be by your side when you feel alone I’ll hold you through the night
Inspiration’s what you are to me so don’t hold all the hurt inside
Track Name: Collette
Collette

Hey we got ourselves a situation
Sitting next to you and I’m stuck for conversation
Scared if I look in your eyes
I’ll say something wrong
Maybe I’ve just been like this too long

Once there was I time
That if I looked into your eyes
Well my words would not escape me I would say
I’d say hello
Collette I’d say hello

Maybe I would ask you what you’re thinkin’
Maybe I’d take you out drinkin’
But I can’t even find the words
To ask you what your number is
Cos I know exactly what’d happen if I did

Once there was I time
That if I looked into your eyes
Well my words would not escape me I would say
I’d say hello
Collette I’d say hello

Sometimes I think what I’d say to you
Sometimes I think of what we could do
But I know I’ll never know what it’s like to be your friend
Cos of where I am this has to end

Once there was I time
That if I looked into your eyes
Well my words would not escape me I would say
I’d say hello
Collette I’d say hello
Track Name: Stick or Twist
Stick or Twist

Would you write me a line if I read you the time what’s it to be stick or twist
Say you’ll be mine if I cut you a line and whisper to you I never miss
Sell me your soul for another hold and watch as your love becomes lust
The cards that you hold so close to your chest will they match my royal flush

Stick or twist
Have you had enough
Hit or miss
Call my bluff

Will you fall to your knees for the ace up my sleeve and put your money down
Could you look in these eyes that see through your disguise do like what I’m dealin’ out
Could it possibly be could you see through me the card at the bottom of the pack
Or are you tryin’ to forget with some Russian roulette call me is it red or black

Stick or twist
Have you had enough
Hit or miss
Fold or call my bluff

Would you write me a line if I read you the time what’s it to be stick or twist
Say you’ll be mine if I cut you a line and whisper to you I never miss
Would you call twenty one with the sound of the gun would you still play straight down the line
With a diamond to start would you play with my heart or is it see ya some other time

Stick or twist
Have you had enough
Hit or miss
Call my bluff
Track Name: Father
Father

Father I don’t mean to hurt you, I hate to let you down
Mother I want to see no more tears in your eyes
But I can’t say why
Brother in my heart I miss you I only wish you well
I know that you only wish the same for me
Why can’t I see

When the stars align
In the dead of night
In one dream of mine
I know you’ll be there one more time

Father I think of you, a hero in my eyes
Mother I always remember seeing you smile
And I’ll walk the miles
Brother hold on don’t waste a thought on me
Just maybe one day I might see the light you pray I do
That I might find me

When the stars align
In the dead of night
In one dream of mine
I know you’ll be there one more time
Father please be there one last time

Rockin’ world

We drove from Alabama to sweet Louisiana late nights drinkin’ whisky and rye
Six in the morning sun up is dawning and head’s tellin’ me I’ve died
Drivin’ down the freeway feelin’ like a new day where’d I lay my head last night
Playin’ an under’s disco down in San Francisco rock n roll and it’s alright

Becky Rose
Dungeon girl
Becky Rose
Rockin’ world

Last high’s fallin’ cocaine’s callin’ get me back to feelin’ real
Friday night fightin’ Saturday like lightenin’ gettin’ on my wheels of steel
High as a kite on a crystal clear night it’s time to hit the open road
What I’m sayin’ six string playin’ and carryin’ a heavy load
