Track Name: Long Way to Heaven (feat. Kareña K)
THIS IS THE STORY OF JOHNNY AND LOUISE
DOWN ON KENNEDY BOULEVARD
COULD BE THE STORY OF YOU AND ME
LOSING TRACK OF THE FOLKS WE BOTH ARE
SOME HOLD ON TO DREAMS
SOME HOLD ON TO THE FEAR
THEY’RE JUST GROWING OLD…
LOUISE TURNS TO JOHNNY
PUTS HER HAND INTO HIS
WITH A SMILE THAT ONLY HE KNOWS

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

JOHNNY SAYS “LOUISE, I DON’T KNOW
HOW FAR WE’VE COME DOWN THIS ROAD
THIS TOWN DON’T HOLD THE SAME FASCINATION
I DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY WE SHOULD GO”
HE LOOKS ACROSS
TO THE SUN SINKING DOWN
IN THE SHIMMERING, SHIMMERING GOLD
‘I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY CALL A PLACE YOU CAN’T RETURN FROM…
LORD…
I DON’T WANT TO KNOW’

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

TIRED AND ALONE
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
JOHNNY AND SWEET, SWEET LOUISE…
PULLED THEIR HOPES
OUT OF THE OCEAN
HAND IN HAND IN THE SWEET SUMMER BREEZE

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

WHEN YOU’RE DOWN UPON YOUR LUCK
YOU’RE LUCKY TO HAVE SOMEONE YOU CAN HOLD
A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
A LONG WAY HOME…

Track Name: Motel Blues (feat. E D Brayshaw)
IN THIS TOWN TELEVISION SHUTS OFF AT TWO
WHAT CAN A LONELY ROCK’N’ROLLER DO
A BED SO BIG THE SHEETS ARE CLEAN
YOUR GIRLFRIEND SAID YOU WERE JAMES DEAN
A STYROFOAM ICE BUCKET FULL OF ICE
COME UP TO MY MOTEL ROOM AND
TREAT ME NICE

I DON’T WANT TO MAKE NO LATE NIGHT NEW YORK CALLS
I DON’T WANT TO STARE AT THESE UGLY GRASSMAT WALLS
CHRONOLOGICALLY I KNOW YOU’RE YOUNG
COS WHEN YOU KISSED ME IN THE CLUB YOU BIT MY TONGUE
I’LL WRITE A SONG FOR YOU
AND PUT IT ON MY NEXT LP
COME UP TO MY MOTEL ROOM AND
SLEEP WITH ME

THERE’S A BIBLE IN THE DRAWER DON’T BE AFRAID
I’LL PUT UP A SIGN TO WARN THE CLEAN UP MAID
THERE’S LOTS OF SOAP AND LOTS OF TOWELS
NEVER MIND THOSE DESK CLERK SCOWLS
I’LL BUY YOU BREAKFAST AND
THEY’LL THINK YOU’RE MY WIFE
COME UP TO MY MOTEL ROOM AND
SAVE MY LIFE
Track Name: Castle of Clay / Forty Days (Reprise)
I TOOK A WALK DOWN MAIN STREET
BY THE HOUSE WHERE I WAS BORN
I COULD HARDLY BELIEVE IT
THE OLD HOUSE AIN’T THERE NO MORE
EVERYTHING HAS BEEN
WASHED AWAY

A CASTLE OF CLAY…

AND IT SEEMED LIKE YESTERDAY
WE WOULD LAUGH UNTIL WE CRY
YOU CAN HEAR THE ECHOES
OF A LOVE THAT WOULD NEVER DIE

EVERYTHING I THOUGHT WOULD STAY
HAS SLOWLY WASHED AWAY

LIKE A CASTLE OF CLAY

LORD I HOPE IT DON’T RAIN TODAY
I HOPE IT DON'T RAIN…

SOLO

I FINALLY GOT BACK HOME
FIGURED MY DAY WAS DONE
I COULD HARDLY BELIEVE IT
MY WIFE GAVE ME A SON
I’M GONNA TEACH HIM
TO LOVE EACH DAY
BEFORE THEY’RE WASHED AWAY
LIKE A CASTLE OF CLAY

LORD I HOPE IT DON’T RAIN TODAY
I HOPE IT DON’T RAIN

NO NO – I HOPE IT DON’T RAIN TODAY

FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
KEEP THAT SUN SHINING BRIGHT…

FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
KEEP THAT SUN SHINING BRIGHT…

FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
KEEP THAT SUN SHINING BRIGHT…

FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
KEEP THAT SUN SHINING BRIGHT…

WELL I HOPE IT DON’T RAIN…

Track Name: Did I Forget (To Tell You I Love You) - (feat. Kareña K)
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
I GUESS MY DRINKIN’ GOT IN THE WAY
AND ALL THE STARS SHINING ABOVE YOU
COULDN’T KEEP ME FROM LOSING MY WAY
NOW I’M ALL BROKEN DOWN
ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN
I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD HAVE ONE MORE DAY
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
I GUESS THE ANGELS WILL HEAR ME TODAY

DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I NEEDED YOU
I NEEDED YOU MORE WITH EACH PASSING DAY
DID I FORGET TO SAY I BELIEVE IN YOU
BELIEVE IN YOU MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY
WELL I’VE ALREADY GONE
AND WROTE IT DOWN IN A SONG
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL HEAR IT ONE DAY
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU
WELL THOSE WERE THE WORDS THAT I WANTED TO SAY

NOW I’M ALL BROKEN DOWN
ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF TOWN
I THOUGHT THAT WE WOULD HAVE ONE MORE DAY
DID I FORGET TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU…
WELL THOSE WERE THE WORDS THAT I WANTED TO SAY

GOODBYE BABY
IT’S BEEN A LONG, LONG, LONG LONELY DAY
SO LONG DARLING
MAYBE, MAYBE ONE DAY…
GOODBYE BABY
ALL THE ANGELS WILL HEAR ME TODAY…
SO LONG DARLING…
GOODBYE BABE…

Track Name: Love Will Find A Way (feat. Kareña K)
I COULD BE RIGHT
I GUESS I COULD BE WRONG
A CHANGE OF HEART
CAN COME AROUND WITH JUST A SONG
SO TURN THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
AND IF THIS WORLD GETS YOU DOWN
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

HERE COMES TROUBLE
RED SKIES OVER DAWN
HALF MOON RISIN’
ON A SAN FRANCISCO LAWN
TURN MY WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
AND IF THIS WORLD GETS YOU DOWN
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

I’M IN BLUE HEAVEN
WITH A POCKETFUL OF DIMES
CALIFORNIA SUNSHINE
GONNA DO THAT EVERYTIME
TURN THAT WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
THIS BIG OL’ WORLD WON’T GET YOU DOWN
COS LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

I COULD BE RIGHT
I GUESS I COULD BE WRONG
BUT I HEARD LOUIS
SING ABOUT IT IN A SONG
SO TURN THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN
IT’S SUCH A LOVELY DAY
AND IF THIS WORLD GETS YOU DOWN
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY…

Track Name: Angels in the Night (feat. Kareña K)
SAY GOODBYE TO DONNIE G
AND WILY BO…
THEY’RE LEAVING IN THE MORNING
FOR A LIFE OF ROCK AND ROLL
SAY THEY'RE TIRED OF ALL THIS HANGING AROUND
YOU KNOW THAT TIME
AIN'T GOOD FOR NOTHING
IN THIS GODFORSAKEN TOWN…

SUSIE CHILD ITS A PERFECT DISGRACE
YOU'VE GOT A PERFECT DISGUISE
UNDER THAT PERFECT FACE
DRIFTING AROUND BETWEEN THE STARS AND THE MOON AND THE SUN
YOU'VE GOT TO USE WHAT TIME HAS GIVEN WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG

WHEN YOU'RE STILL YOUNG…

WELL I WAS TALKING WITH MY FRIENDS
JUST THE OTHER DAY
TRYING TO FIND ME SOME SWEET PEACE OF MIND

SOMEHOW SOMEWHERE WE ALL GO OUR SEPARATE WAYS
SEARCHING FOR OUR ANGELS…

ANGELS IN THE NIGHT

ON A DIRT TRACK ROAD
ON A HOT SUMMERS DAY
I WAS STARING THROUGH THE SHIMMER
AT THOSE STEELYARD GRAVES
COMES A TIME
WE'VE ALL GOT TO GET AWAY…
YOU MIGHT LOSE
WHAT TIME HAS GIVEN YOU ONE DAY

SO LONG BABY
BABY SO LONG
WHAT YOU’VE GOT ONE MOMENT
AH YOU KNOW THE NEXT ITS GONE
KEEP IT SHINING HONEY
SHINING LIKE A LIGHT
SEARCHING FOR THOSE ANGELS…

ANGELS IN THE NIGHT…

Track Name: For The Children
OH ANGEL, MY SWEET ANGEL
I SEE SHADOWS CROSS THE SKY
AND MIDNIGHT EYES
ARE LOOKING AT THE WORLD TONIGHT

OH ANGEL, MY SWEET ANGEL
WHEN THE TRUTH COMES DOWN
IT’S GOING TO RAIN LIKE CRAZY
ON THE CHILDREN
AS THEY SLEEP TONIGHT

AND WHO’LL BE THERE TO CATCH THEIR DREAMS AS THEY FALL
WHO’LL BE THERE FOR THE CHILDREN
WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL?

WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL?

OH ANGEL, I’VE HEARD SO MANY LIES
BUT WITH WARS TO THE EAST
CORRUPTION TO THE WEST
HOW THE HELL WE EVER GONNA SURVIVE?

OH ANGEL, MY SWEET ANGEL
WHEN THEY LIGHT THOSE FIRES
THEY’RE GOING TO BURN LIKE FOREVER
BUT WE’RE NEVER GOING TO SEE THE LIGHT

AND WHO’LL BE THERE TO CATCH OUR DREAMS AS THEY FALL
WHO’LL BE THERE FOR THE CHILDREN
WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL?

COS TIME IS SLIPPING THROUGH OUR FINGERS
LIKE A STORM IN THE DESERT SAND
WHO CAN PLACE OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE
IN THE PALM OF SOME FOOLS HAND?
IF ONLY I COULD GET SOME ANSWERS
I WOULD LET THEM ALL IN ON THE PLAN
SO WHEN THEIR NIGHTMARES CALL
THEY CAN UNDERSTAND…

SO THEY CAN UNDERSTAND…

Track Name: Jenny (Traces in my Arms)
JENNY
YOU WENT AWAY
WITH A DIAMOND SNAKE
A WHOLE LOT OF PAIN IN YOUR HEART
THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY
YOU'RE COMING BACK
BUT THOSE DREAMS TURNED TO DUST
IN THE DARK

IN THE DARK
I KEEP THINKING ABOUT
THE TIMES THAT WE HAD
TEARS WE CRIED IN THE RAIN
AND THOSE MEMORIES
COME BACK TO ME, GIRL

JENNY
NOW THAT YOU'RE GONE
I CAN'T SAY ALL THE THINGS I WANTED TO SAY TO YOU
JENNY
IN THE COLD LIGHT OF DAWN
I JUST HOPE THESE WORDS GET THROUGH…

JENNY
THERE'S A MEMORY
AND A PHOTOGRAPH
I KEEP LOCKED AWAY IN A DRAWER
ALL THOSE SOUVENIRS
WE HELD SO DEAR
I JUST CAN'T FACE…

JENNY
NOW THAT YOU'RE GONE
I CAN'T SAY ALL THE THINGS I WANTED TO SAY TO YOU
JENNY
IN THE COLD LIGHT OF DAWN
I JUST HOPE THIS SONG GETS THROUGH…

JENNY
I LOVE YOU JENNY…
LORD, I LOVE YOU CHILD…
I STILL LOVE YOU JENNY
REMEMBER ALL THOSE TEARS THAT WE CRIED
WALKING BAREFOOT IN THE PARK
I REMEMBER THE NIGHT THAT YOU…

JENNY
YOU WENT AWAY
WITH A DIAMOND SNAKE
A WHOLE LOT OF PAIN IN YOUR HEART
THOUGHT I HEARD YOU SAY
YOU'RE COMING BACK
BUT THOSE DREAMS TURNED TO DUST IN THE DARK
ALL THOSE DREAMS TURNED TO DUST IN THE DARK
ALL THOSE DREAMS TURNED TO DUST…

AND THE MEMORY THAT I HAVE OF YOU
IS THE NIGHTMARE OF YOU
TURNING BLUE
IN MY ARMS

ALONE IN MY ARMS…

ALONE…

IN MY ARMS…

IN MY ARMS

WON’T YOU COME BACK HOME TO ME

TO MY ARMS…

IN MY ARMS

TRACES OF YOU IN MY ARMS

TRACES OF YOU IN MY ARMS

TRACES OF YOU IN MY ARMS

THERE ARE TRACES IN MY ARMS

TRACES IN MY ARMS

TRACES…

Track Name: Speaking of Happiness (feat. Rattlin Bone)
SPEAKING OF HAPPINESS
YOU NEVER THOUGHT OF MINE
MENTIONING LONLINESS
I FEEL LONELY ALL THE TIME
EVER SINCE YOU WENT AWAY
AFTER SWEARING WE WOULD NEVER PART
THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD SAY
COS WHO COULD TALK WITH A BROKEN HEART?

SPEAKING OF HAPPINESS
WHY DID IT HAVE TO LEAVE
MENTIONING FAITHLESSNESS
WHY COULD YOU NOT BELIEVE
YOU KNOW I LOVED YOU SO VERY MUCH
HOW COULD ANYTHING GO SO WRONG
WITH THE MAGIC OF YOUR TOUCH
AND YOUR LOVE TO KEEP ME STRONG

SPEAKING OF HAPPINESS
WHERE DID IT EVER GO
DID IT LEAVE WITH YOUR CARESS
AND THE TENDERNESS THAT I USED TO KNOW
OR IS IT RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES
A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
SPEAKING OF HAPPINESS
WHY DON'T WE GIVE IT ONE MORE TRY

SPEAKING OF HAPPINESS
ONE MORE TIME
ONE MORE TIME
ALL THAT LONLINESS
SPEAKING OF MY HAPPINESS
YOU NEVER THOUGHT OF MINE
ALL THIS LONLINESS
DEEP DOWN INSIDE…
Track Name: Rain On My Footsteps (feat. Rattlin Bone)
RAIN ON MY FOOTSTEPS
WIND IN MY HAIR
TEN LONG YEARS
SINCE I LEFT YOU BACK THERE
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
OH MY PRETTY DARLING
I STILL LOVE YOU SO

TEN YEARS
IS A MIGHTY LONG TIME
STRUNG OUT
ALONE
ON THE MISSISSIPPI MAINLINE
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
AND OH MY DARLING
I STILL LOVE YOU SO

BUT IT WAS
BYE, BYE BABY
BABY BYE, BYE
I’M LEAVING IN THE MORNING
ON THE SEVEN-O-NINE
WHO CARES ABOUT TOMORROW, HONEY
WE’VE GOT TONIGHT
AND WE CAN MAKE BELIEVE
I NEVER GOT TO GO…

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM
AND A POCKETFUL OF CHARMS
I’D TRADE ALL THE RAIN
IN SACRAMENTO
FOR A MOMENT IN YOUR ARMS
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
OH MY DARLING
I LOVE YOU SO

BUT IT WAS
BYE, BYE BABY BABY
BABY BYE, BYE
I’M LEAVING IN THE MORNING
ON THAT SEVEN-O-NINE
WHO CARES ABOUT TOMORROW, HONEY
WE’VE GOT TONIGHT
AND WE CAN MAKE BELIEVE
I NEVER GOT TO GO…

RAIN ON MY FOOTSTEPS
THE WIND IN MY HAIR
I’D PAY THOSE DOGS IN HEAVEN
IF THEY’D JUST TAKE ME BACK THERE…
I THINK ABOUT YOU
EVERY STEP THAT I GO
AND OH MY PRETTY DARLING
I STILL LOVE YOU SO…

I STILL LOVE YOU DARLING
YEH
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME…
AH
DREAM ON
OH
DREAM ON
I LOVE YOU SO…

Track Name: Light at the End of the Tunnel (Bourbon & Candlelight Mix) - (feat. Kareña K)
IT TOOK ME YEARS
AT THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
WHEN YOU WALKED ON OUT
TEN GODDAMN YEARS
AT THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
WHEN YOU WALKED ON OUT
YOU DIDN’T KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING
DIDN’T KNOW YOU WOULD BE SCREWING
WITH MY MIND
YOU’RE SO UNKIND
LED ME RIGHT BACK DOWN THAT ROAD
THAT ROAD SO LONG CLOSED
AND THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
JUST WENT OUT

WELL I THOUGHT YOU KNEW ME
BUT YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS
TO ME, IF YOU DID
I THOUGHT YOU KNEW ME BUT
YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS TO ME
LORD IF YOU DID
I PUT ALL THAT STUFF BEHIND ME
NEVER THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD FIND ME
BUT IT’S HERE
OH LORD IT’S HERE
THAT OLD FEELING’S BACK AGAIN
WITH A WHOLE NEW CROWD OF FRIENDS
AND THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
JUST WENT OUT
IT JUST WENT OUT…

WELL I THOUGHT YOU WERE MY FRIEND
BUT ALL GOOD THINGS HAVE TO END
THEN THEY DID
YES THEY DID
I DON’T WANT YOUR SYMPATHY
I’M JUST GETTING BACK TO ME
AND THE LIGHT
AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
JUST WENT OUT

IT JUST WENT OUT…

Track Name: I Want To Know (Southern Comfort Mix) - (feat. E D Brayshaw)
TELL ME YOUR SECRETS…
TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS

WELL IT SURE TURNED OUT LIKE SOME KIND OF SUMMER
WHAT WITH THE HEAT AND THE WIND AND THE RAIN
WE WERE LIVING IN THE DEEP SOUTH
A PASSION BURNING IN OUR VEINS
ONE NIGHT BABY SAYS SHE FEELS THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG HERE
SHE FEEL A TERROR LIKE A HEARTBEAT
DEEP INSIDE
AND THEN BABY SAID SHE WOULD
BABY SAYS SHE MIGHT
JUST TAKE A LITTLE DRIVE OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
I WANNA KNOW
I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
WHERE GOES MY BABY?
MY BABY TONIGHT?

WHEN IT TURNED INTO THE COOL OF NOVEMBER
I KIND OF KNEW I’D NEVER SEE HER AGAIN
IN THE STILL OF THE NIGHT
WHEN YOU TURN OUT THE LIGHT
I SWEAR I HEARD HER
CALLING OUT MY NAME
TODAY I HEARD THEY'D FOUND HER CHEVY
BURIED HALFWAY DOWN IN THAT TAHOE MUD
BUT IT WAS EMPTY INSIDE
LIKE MY BABY’S EYES
WHEN SHE TOOK TO DISAPPEAR OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
I WANNA KNOW
I WANNA KNOW
WHERE BABY DON’T GO
WHERE GOES MY BABY?
MY BABY TONIGHT?

AND I’VE BEEN DRIVING THROUGH THESE STREETS IN THE MOONLIGHT
TRYING TO FIND A REASON WHY
IT'LL TAKE A FOOL LIKE ME
NOT TO REALISE
I NEED MY BABY TONIGHT…

Track Name: September Red (feat. E D Brayshaw)
LISTEN TO YOUR HEARTBEAT, BABY
CAN YOU FEEL IT NEXT TO MINE
LIFT YOUR LOVELIGHT TO THE WORLD
AND LET IT SHINE
CAN YOU HEAR THOSE WAVES A-CRASHING
DARLING,
SOUND LIKE THUNDER ON THE SHORE
BREATHE IN DEEP THE NIGHT
LET YOUR SPIRIT SOAR

BABY
I WILL TAKE YOU BY THE HAND
WHEN I SAY THAT I WILL DIE FOR YOU
I HOPE YOU'LL UNDERSTAND
BABY
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
WHEN YOUR DEEP SEPTEMBER RED
TURNS TOO…

WHEN THE DARKEST SHADOWS FALL
CAST YOUR NIGHTMARES TO THE WALL
I WILL HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS
SHELTERED FROM IT ALL
WHEN THOSE DEMONS IN THE NIGHT
LORD, AND THAT LIGHTNING STARTS TO STRIKE
I WILL TAKE YOU BY YOUR HAND
AND LEAD YOU TO THE LIGHT

BABY
I AM JUST A MAN
WHEN I SAY THAT I WILL DIE FOR YOU
I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND
BABY
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
WHEN YOUR DEEP SEPTEMBER RED
TURNS TO WINTER BLUE

BABY
I WILL TAKE YOU BY THE HAND
WHEN I SAY THAT I WILL DIE FOR YOU
I HOPE YOU'LL UNDERSTAND
BABY
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
WHEN YOUR DEEP SEPTEMBER RED
TURNS TOO…

BABY
I AM JUST A MAN
WHEN I SAY THAT I WILL DIE FOR YOU
I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND
BABY
I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU
WHEN YOUR DEEP SEPTEMBER RED
TURNS TO
WINTER BLUE…

Track Name: Killers on the Run (feat. E D Brayshaw)
WELL I DON’T KNOW WHAT I SAID TO YOU
ON THAT STRANGE AND FATEFUL DAY
YOU TURNED AROUND AND SMILED YOUR SMILE
WALKED AWAY
SOMETHING IN THE WAY YOU MOVED ME
SOMETHING DEEP INSIDE
I NEVER SAW YOU SO ALONE
THE NIGHT
JUDGE CARTER DIED…
THE NIGHT JUDGE CARTER DIED

MAMA C. CAME UP TO ME
IF MY MEMORY SERVES ME WELL
TAKE A DRIVEE DOWN ROTHKO BOY
TAKE A MOONLIGHT RIDE TO HELL
HER EYES SHONE LIKE DIAMONDS
ECHOING YOUR PAIN
AND IF I SAW YOU JUST THAT ONCE
I NEVER SAW YOUR FACE AGAIN

AND WHEN THE STARS COME OUT
I’LL HAVE A BETTER IDEA WHERE WE ARE
STUCK BETWEEN HEAVEN
AND THE BACK SEAT OF YOUR DADDY’S CAR
DON’T THE MOON ON THE GROUND
MAKE SUCH A DELICATE SOUND?

WELL I’M SORRY IF HE HURT YOU
I’M SORRY IF HE MADE YOU CRY
BUT TONIGHT WE GOT EACH OTHER
WE GOT MIDNIGHT AS OUR ALIBI…
WHEN I THINK OF YOU I BURN, I BURN…
WHEN I THINK OF YOU I BURN…

AND WHEN THE STARS COME OUT
I’LL HAVE A BETTER IDEA WHERE WE ARE
LORD WHERE WE ARE
STUCK BETWEEN HEAVEN
AND THE BACK SEAT OF YOUR DADDY’S CAR
WELL THIS ROAD RUNS FOREVER
TWEEN SAND AND THE SKY
DOWN AMONGST THE PAIN AND THE LIES
WHERE YOUR DREAMS BECOME TWISTED
TANGLED UP IN THE NIGHT
OH DARLING…
WHEN I THINK OF YOU I BURN, I BURN…
WHEN I THINK OF YOU I BURN…

AND I’VE BEEN THROUGH EVERY MEMORY
AND IF A STONE S’BEEN LEFT UNTURNED
IT’S WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN I THINK OF YOU
AND I BURN…
I BURN…
WHEN I THINK OF YOU I BURN…
I BURN…

I CAN TELL YOU TALES OF MURDER
I CAN SPIN YOU SUICIDE
WHEN THE TRUTH COMES DOWN I SWEAR TO GOD
I NEVER REALISED
BABY TALKS IN SWEET REVENGE
BABY’S GOT A GUN
WE HITCHED A RIDE TO CALIFORNIA…
WE’RE BOTH
KILLERS ON THE RUN
WE’RE ALL JUST KILLERS ON THE RUN…
ON THE RUN…

OUT HERE WE ARE TWISTED
OUT HERE WE ARE ALONE
OUT HERE WE ARE
BEAUTIFUL…

OUT HERE WE ARE STONE
OUT HERE WE ARE ALONE
OH SO BEAUTIFUL…

STONE COLD BEAUTIFUL…
