Track Name: Bad Timing
#1 Bad Timing

Hey, you swept me off my feet
I wasn't ready for it please don't turn away
Babe, we were children at out meeting
But we grew a little each and every day.

I left you out a rose by the stairs
Told you things I'd long kept to myself
I guess in love you caught me unprepared
For the devil's greener grass, bad timing bared.

She said, "I've never felt this way"
I told her, "Babe, I feel the same"
We had everything
It's such a long way down from here, bad timing babe.

Wait, life is mine i won't feel cheated,
But i do declare it always felt like fate
Babe, i was young and undefeated,
Much too young to really keep and honest name.

I didn't know my soul was on the line
Met the devil laughed into his face
I called the gypsy, told her she was right
As the devil led me on, Bad Timing rides.

She said, "Can I trust you babe"
So i told her everything
She tore a little bit
And the devil led it on, bad timing ripped

Rain, the smell of falling leaves
Like lovers trampled under feet it seems to me
Babe, I've never felt so self-defeatist
For after all what's the world without you dear?

I should have known I really had it all
It's carved into my hands deep in the lines
It's written in the stars somewhere I'm sure
But the devil led me on, now you're not mine.

She said, "You can love me babe,
Like I used to love you,
But we ain't going back"
It's a long way down from here, bad timing blamed.
Track Name: Goodbye
#2 Goodbye, to all of that:

I'm ready to face it;
Strip of the tease of my torture.
Make the bed
And clean the ashtrays too.
I've been here for ages.
I'd kill for the comfort and warmth.
But there's really no use
Waiting around for you

Goodbye, Bright light, Goodbye,
Goodbye, to all of that

Katherine, you made me
And baby you broke me some.
Maybe love's
Too brittle to be used.
I guess I can fake it,
Crack a smile at the drop of a pun.
You're cheatin me babe,
I guess I cheated on you.

Goodbye, Bright Light, Goodbye,
Goodbye, To all of that

Wash her hair
And tell her she look's pretty.
Let her know
How lucky you've become
And if you do your best for her
I'm happy
I'll try to do my best to move along.

I guess on the face it
Seems like a foul hand of fortune.
The rushes hiss:
"There's lovers in the dunes"
Wherever that grace is
Lover go find it well
And after please
Pass it on to me

Goodbye, Bright Light, Goodbye
Goodbbye, to all of that

Woman, Woman, I loved you
But ain't it hard to play the way we do
Woman I needed you
Carry on love, do the things we'd do
Woman this is for you
Carry on love, do the things you do.
Track Name: Over Again
#3 Over Again

I don't know you anymore
But I'm certain of the score
The pastor left waiting looks down the nave
For strangers to couple that never came

Reckless hearts may stumble on
Something perfect when they're young
The union erases their point of view
For you are the other, the other is you

Rinsing the dream until it's dry as hay
Over and Over and Over again
You could let her go if you wanted to
You can let her go, like I'll do

Never gently will they part
Kicking, screaming 'til the last
And that which was given I gave it glad
You took what you needed, I held none back

How to choose just what to think
Of the other half of me
Your picture is fabled by gleaming past
Of all that I wanted but you're not that

Rinsing the dream until its dry as hay
Over and Over and Over and Over again
You could let her go if you wanted to
You can let her go, like I'll do
Track Name: I Feel You
#4 I Feel You

To you I'll make myself very clear
I don't expect to speak to you
And I don't expect to hear

I crawl in crutchless panic
Rubbing tar into my knees
As i fumble for my pocket-watch
What time is it? What time is it?
Make it to the alley
Bloody hands: the blood is mine
If i could run I surely would
What time is it? What time is it?

I feel you like I feel me
And i've been us for
Five years and more.

Returning to my self again, I feel me
In losing half my self again, I feel you.

Now you, you know me better
The better me and bad
Do you want me love, I'm at the door.
What time is it? What time is it?
Me, I'm like a tudor
Lopping heads off
I get bored
I'm waiting love won't you take me love?
What time is it? What time is it?

I feel you, like I feel me
And i've been us for
Five years and more.

Returning to my self again, I feel me
In losing half my self again, I feel you.

Out here in the alley
There's methadone for sale
I tried to go cold turkey love
I'm tired of it, I'm sick of it.
For you, You know me better
And better's what I am
I'm waiting love just a little more
What time is it, What time is it

I feel you, like I feel me
And i've been us for
Five years and more.

Returning to my self again, I feel me
In losing half my self again, I feel you.

To you I'll make myself very clear
I don't expect to speak to you
And I don't expect to hear
To you I'll make myself very clear
If I ever think of you, you won't be first to hear
Track Name: You Want, I Don't
#5 You Want, I Don't:

You Want but I Don't
And we keep tagging along
To those of heart
Who rise to loving as a test
You know it's bound to fall before the end.

We can try to tame
But ever it shakes off the leash
We can bridle
Place a hand upon the steer
Whip our crooks and flails
And dig our toes in too
But it makes no difference
If we do.

You need, and you grieve
While I'm still rambling on
The right off man to knock it down
To know it stood
You know he leaves his pride
Among the ruins.

I can't try to take
The pressure against this restraint
Though many rogues I know
Will clamour for your heart
May this be one
Who had his chance at love
But it made no differene
Did it make much difference to you love.

My seat is too deep
For you to saddle along
Anyway, what I really wanted to tell you was
I didn't have the srength to continue

My cold price to pay
Is to think of you
Almost every day.
Twist the shackles girl
I'll twist the other way
And though I don't tomorrow
I just may.
But it makes no difference
Now it makes no difference anyway.
Track Name: Broken Wings
#6 Broken Wings:

You know of you alone.
You know your means.
You know your part in it.
But you don't know me.

Killing time, the bad disease,
Alcohol makes sense to me.
Most of love's the joke you know.
Making love's an easy feat,
You break the bed then you push her away.
Mostly lovers make it up;
You paint the paitent,
That's you
And she's the drug.

As evening's breaking
Those of fortune sigh
With lover's
At their sides,
Enclosed
In eiderdown,
Entwined

I live the dream, I never know the time
I work for fun and I can fund the life.
Yet I feel I'm getting old.
Still every day is in the moment babe
The friend's I know are so close to me.
While I still miss the sunday's
And I still crave a home.

As evening's looming
Those of fortune sigh
As one
Enrobed
In flesh
As one
In mind
As one
They cry.

How to fly on broken wings
How to rise from slumbering
How to fly on broken wings
Tell I.

Mannequins infect the trends,
Paper sheets around the plastic limbs:
Yet how to find reprieve,
When all is done and death is easy?

Of her i think.
Does she need me at all?
Does she miss me at all?
Like I do.


How to fly on broken wings
How to rise from slumbering
How to fly on broken wings
Tell I.
Track Name: I Know It's Over Now
#7 I Know It's Over Now:

If I had a dollar for every time I didn't give up
If I had a pound for every time I tried
If I had a girl on every night I waited for you
Maybe I'd see riches in your eyes

I know, I know, I know It's Over Now.

If I was a bit less in the wrong I'd say you were right
If I was a man I'd give it up to you
If I didn't hold my foolish pride in such high esteem
Maybe I'd be rich much more than you

I'm a richer, I'm a richer man.

If I had a box of laughter for the dreams I had saved
Baby I would spend that laughter over you
Maybe I am poor compared to all you have gained
But baby I am richer with the blues
Track Name: Breathing New Air
#8 Breathing New Air:

Throw away the sheets love. Throw away the guns.
We did it all in the silent night, deaf to bleeding dreams.
I guess that I am not cut out for this, after all it seems;
Now the war has come and gone there’s nothing green to keep.
It’s not for me, it’s not for friends, it’s for you but you’re immune to teaching eyes that want to prove something you don’t see.

Tired of playing fools with you, I don’t mean no offence. Some get tired and some get strange,
Me, I’m passed my shelf-age best.
I used to fight you. I used to care.
Something changed in the melody now I’m breathing new air.

Garrisons of lonely eyes stare into the steam.
I’m lost between the gaze of them and the engine hot to leave. With heavy shot and powdered eye I’m fighting through the crowds. Really ought to sleep tonight; lay the jailbird down. Though half my heart you took away, none of yours I kept.
But that’s ok with me babe, I gave it to the best.


Tired of playing fool for you, I don’t mean no distress
Something cried in the distance, someone put it down to rest.
I used to fight you. I used to care.
Something changed in the melody now I'm breathing new air.

What’s misuse, just the sense of it - picking holes in stains. Though half I claimed in sentence mine, you’re still inspired to blame. For something hardly recognised by the minor hands of time. Something short with squinting eyes; dwarfed the fate of love. Now you call the shots on this aftermath, with all your fickle friends. When the commander pulls his blade out they say, “god bless little lamb”.

No, I won’t dress in my coloured best, with dreams of brick and slag. If love’s a game you can laugh about I guess I’m free at last. Diamonds are forever baby; nothing but the best.
I stole around the gauntlet, it left me bleeding from the chest. So throw away the prize love. Throw away the fight.
The more you’ve got to lose baby, the more you fear at night.
