Track Name: Saved By Rock And Roll
Saved By Rock And Roll

And so you closed the door
And took off your pretty dress
Everything was crashing round
Inside my head

The morning came
And still I could not make it clear
That I could stay inside of you
For a billion years

Cause when you touched me
Oh, baby
The devil took me from below

And you saved me
You saved my goddamn soul
You saved me
Saved me with rock and roll

The stars were breaking out
Upon the wounded sky
To the dancing of the universe
I closed my eyes

The screams of love
Could still be heard upon your bed
Every single move we made
Every word we said

And then you touched me
Oh, baby
The devil took me from below

And you saved me
You saved my goddamn soul
You saved me
Saved me with rock and roll

I could see the beams of light
Upon your sleepy hair
I could see the end of time
And you and I were there

You saved me
You saved my goddamn soul
You saved me
Saved me with rock and roll
Track Name: Is It You?
Is It You?

I heard that you wanted me
I heard that you cared
And all that you had you would share
Your Hollywood shirts
Your best and your worst
The secrets you never declare

But all I ever wanted
Was a lover strong and true
Somebody that would take away these blues
So tell baby, tell me
Is it you?

If I gave you my heart
On a long silver thread
Would you drag me around in your bed?
And if my world falls apart
Will you make it all new?
Will you do what a lover should do?

Oh tell baby, tell me
Tell baby, tell me
Is it you?

Cause all I ever wanted
Was a lover strong and true
Somebody that would take away these blues
So tell baby, tell me
Oh tell baby, tell me
Is it you?
Track Name: Waste Of Time
Waste Of Time

You come knocking on my door girl
Like you ain’t ever been gone
And suddenly you want me
And your love is strong

Well I might be dumb
But honey I’m not blind
Cause loving you baby
Was just a waste of time

You sold me down the river
For another man’s love
But for a woman like you
That ain’t ever gonna be enough

And now you come crawling
Saying you’re still mine
But loving you baby
Was just a waste of time

Oh this song don’t mean nothing
No nothing at all
Except the higher you climb
The further you fall

And nothing here changes
You’re still on my mind
But pretty baby
You’re just a waste of time
Track Name: In My Arms Again
In My Arms Again

If I were a hero
Handsome and brave
And fearless in battle
Ten thousand had saved

Then I’d run away
And I’d suffer the shame
If I could hold you
In my arms again

And if I wasn’t guilty
Had not done the deed
And the judge he said
Just how do you plead

Then I would confess
And I’d take all of the blame
If I could hold you
In my arms again

And if the sky should open
And Jesus came down
And he said you’ve been good son
It’s for heaven your bound

Then I’d go to hell
And I’d burn in the flames
If I could hold you
In my arms again

Yes I’d go to hell
And I’d burn in the flames
If I could hold you
In my arms again
Track Name: Dark And Lonely Child
Dark And Lonely Child

My daddy was a working man
He was caught in a life he didn’t understand
He lived up on the high rise states
When he saw the light it was just too late

My mamma was a mixed up girl
And she lived her life in a mixed up world
We left her standing by the gates
How come we love the things that we love to hate

Well you can go crazy
Just staying alive
You do what you have to
When you’re a dark and lonely child

Your heart can grow a brand new skin
You can twist the knife but you won’t get in
The stars above will fade and die
Before you know all the reasons why

The thunder and lightning
The wind blowing wild
The moon and the shadows
And a dark and lonely child

Well you can go crazy
Just staying alive
You do what you have to
When you’re a dark and lonely child

Don’t go you can just say no
You can be who you want to be
Track Name: Bound For Blue
Bound For Blue

I see you standing by the window
Pretty ribbon in your hair
I see you laughing by the water
I close my eyes and you’re still there

The beauty of the roses
The beauty of your smile
The poetry of longing
The dark and hopeless wounded sky

I was born to love you
Nothing I could do
Never to recover
And bound for blue

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving
I’m going far away
I wonder if you’ll follow
I wonder if you’ll stay

I was born to love you
Nothing I could do
Never to recover
And bound for blue
Track Name: Don't Cry
Don’t Cry

I know you’ve lived a lonely life
I know your days go by
You watch the fading of the light
The dreams inside you die

Don’t cry
Don’t cry

Your broken heart won’t let you go
There’s nowhere you can hide
How you were wounded I don’t know
But I will dry your eyes

Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Track Name: Home To Stay?
Home To Stay?

She calls to say she’s coming back
But please don’t ask her for the facts
Pretty soon
I see her standing in the pouring rain

She looks so lonely and confused
But all I say is ‘How are you?’
She takes my hand
And I feel a little stab of pain

I don’t know
What made her want to run away
I don’t know the reasons
I’m just glad she’s home to stay?

Was I drinking, was I bad?
Could I not see she was sad?
Was my love
Like the loving that it used to be?

As the years went passing by
Did she still look me in the eye?
Was her mind?
On another who was not like me?

I don’t know
What made her want to run away
I don’t know the reasons
I’m just glad she’s home to stay?

I don’t know
What made her want to run away
I don’t know the reasons
I’m just glad she’s home to stay?
Track Name: The Tall Ships
The Tall Ships

I can see the tall ships coming
Across the open sea
No more will I go sailing
No more will I be free

For they put me in this prison
For revenging my own wife
For the man I took to killing
For the taking of his life

But the judge he took no mercy
Black cap upon his head
I can see the tall ships coming
But tomorrow I will be dead

She was my own true lover
And all that I could need
They found her by the harbour
As cold as cold can be

But the judge he took no mercy
To the gallows I will be led
I can see the tall ships coming
But tomorrow I will be dead

A black eyed out of towner
With blood upon his hands
Was seen to be a running
Across the dark bay sands

Well I took my gun and powder
And I took my anger too
I chased him across the shoreline
Till the skies turned midnight blue

We struggled by the water
I put a bullet in his head
I can see the tall ships coming
But tomorrow I will be dead
Track Name: Crying Mercy
Crying Mercy

It’s not so easy
When you’re down upon your luck
It’s not so easy
When you’re down but can’t get up
You try to run
But you can’t even crawl
You lie there helpless
With your back against the wall

Crying mercy
Crying mercy
Mercy
Crying mercy

Your friends all tell you
That it’s just your point of view
If you could change your mind
There’s nothing you can’t do
But there are times
When everything you do is wrong
You lie there screaming
In your bed the whole night long

Crying mercy
Crying mercy
Mercy
Crying mercy

It’s not so easy
When you’re down upon your luck
It’s not so easy
When you’re down but can’t get up
You try to run
But you can’t even crawl
You lie there helpless
With your back against the wall

Crying mercy
Crying mercy
Mercy
Crying mercy
Track Name: Judgement Day
Judgement Day

There are so many wounded in this life
There are so many wrongs that we call right
And though it’s always been this way
There will be a judgement day

When your heart is so weary from the pain
And you’re holding back those tears once again
Remember just as you turn away
There will be a judgement day

For the hungry and the silent
For the poor and for the weak
For the orphan who screams
But cannot speak

When you’re lonely and there’s nothing you can do
When your whole world is breaking in two
When the skies above are turning grey
Just hang on for judgement day

Remember just as you turn away
There will be a judgement day
Track Name: Lonely Isolation
Lonely Isolation

Why don’t you stay
So I can love you again
Why don’t you stay
So I can love you again
I want you back
Or it will be the end

Tears in my eyes
Can’t seem to see a thing
Tears in my eyes
Can’t seem to see a thing
One thing is clear
That you are everything

I know that it’s the same old situation
I know that it’s my foolish pride
To hide away in lonely isolation
And tell my self the same old lies

The days go by
They’re so long and slow
The days go by
They’re so long and slow
I can’t believe
That I could let you go

No I can’t believe
That I could let you go
Track Name: Change Your Mind
Change Your Mind

A man can change his mind you know
It’s not against the law
He might be thinking he was wrong
Just might be needing more

And he just might think that loneliness
Was alright for a while
But the price you pay to reach the top
Is just a little high

And the nights are cold and the nights are dark
And the dreams inside are dead
And when you reach for comfort in the night
There’s just an empty bed

Change your mind
Change your mind
There’s still time
To change your mind

Well you promised yourself a room with a view
But tell me what do you see
There’s rain on the window and tears in your eyes
And the clouds roll in on the breeze

Ah but still you could make it right
But oh you’ve got your pride
While the man you thought that you would be
Is screaming from inside

Change your mind
Change your mind
There’s still time
To change your mind

Well the ladies smile as you walk by
But still you live alone
Your arm frozen by your side
Your heart like a stone

And with nothing left that you can say
You might as well be dumb
Though you still long for the call of love
Will you hear it when it comes

Change your mind
Track Name: Hold On To Me
Hold On To Me

Come and take this broken man
Come and take his wounded heart
I offer you an open hand
Help me tear these walls apart

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
Come set me free
Hold on to me

Welcome me into your arms
Pull me gently to your breast
In confusion bring me calm
Lay me down and give me rest

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
Come set me free
Hold on to me

Oh I need you
I need you now
Anyway
And anyhow

Hold on to me
Hold on to me
Come set me free
Hold on to me
