Said & Done 02:10
Said & Done It’s been a long, long time Since I seen you smile Never knowing when would be the last Well it’s been way too long Since I promised you this song Funny how the years just pass Will you still think of me After it’s all been said and done When the ship has sailed And we’re back out on the run Well I don’t think, we’ll ever know Well I told you many stories I spun you many lines And every time it ended just the same Maybe someday our paths will cross once more We’ll start it up all over again Will you still think of me After it’s all been said and done When the ship has sailed And we’re back out on the run Well I don’t think, we’ll ever know Will you still think of me After it’s all been said and done When the ship has sailed And we’re back out on the run ... ‘still think of me After it’s all been said and done When the ship has sailed And you’re out there on your own Well I don’t think, we’ll ever know...

Contradiction In Terms You’re an enigma to yourself You and all the rest Far from comprehension Like the walking dead In and out of love ‘til you lay your head Sleep under the smoke clouds Over your bed Wasting all your time On the borderline Asking all the questions to the punch lines Living off some words that you never wrote No money to eat and a brand new coat yeah Got a new obsession every day of the week Feel like jumping off with the world at your feet Never stop talking, got nothing to say Find a new direction Lose another day Feeling broken down With your sorrows drowned You can’t go home ‘cause the landlord’s round What would your mother say if she saw you now No one knows your name but you’re the talk of the town A contradiction in terms A contradiction in terms You’re at odds with yourself So much that it hurts A contradiction in terms

Anodyne 03:42
Anodyne Well you woke me, bright and early once again With that reflection staring back that says Today we're just not friends And another cup of coffee just ain't the cure For this old world and all it's grief Yeah I think I'm sure Yeah I think I'm sure Playing with my mind Wasting all my time Beat up, empty bottles on the floor Hey man, you sure look like you've been Going through the wars You pick me up just to throw me down again But what good is this life at all Without a little pain It wouldn't be the same Make me want to cry Tears in my eyes My anodyne My anodyne You're divine My anodyne Hold back tomorrow (hold back tomorrow) Hold back today (hold back today) Hold back the sorrow (never mind the sorrow) And I'll find my way

The Art Of Falling Down Now the hour’s getting late Moon crawls, stars fade When there’s nothing left to say Crossed miles, crossed hearts Fell asleep and fell apart Take it right back to the start Too much was not enough for you Nothing left for us to do It’s the art of falling down It’s the art of falling down Bloodshot eyes and subtle signs Always been the reckless kind Tape stops, can’t rewind They’re all heart until they turn Build you up to watch you burn In this sad and crazy world Some things are never meant to last Used up, now there’s nothing left It’s the art of falling down It’s the art of falling down For the lost and never found It’s the art of falling down Some things were never built to last Breaking down and you can’t turn back It’s the art of falling down It’s the art of falling down For the lost and never found It’s the art of falling down

Rosary 02:40
Rosary Set your sights on living wild Free and easy, the prodigal child Stylised the world outside And headed for the bright lights Wow oh, woe is me Don't forget your deck of cards and a rosary You and me and the devil make three Don't forget your deck of cards and a rosary Paying dues, rolling dice Brought down the house, cleared that line There’s no life, without regret At the end you're gonna hedge your bets Wow oh, woe is me Don't forget your deck of cards and a rosary You and me and the devil make three Don't forget your deck of cards and a rosary

Leave Your Heart At Home You know the world outside can be a Cold and lonely place No one looks you in the eye Just at the scars on your face Be sure to wrap up warm if you’re Going to brave that storm And don’t you lose your trail Like an old dog in the rain So leave your heart at home Doesn’t matter where you roam Just leave your heart at home No matter where you... And I hate this town ‘cause there Ain’t nothing around so I Buy myself a beer And reflect on what brought me here ‘Cause I miss your face and you’re a Million miles away It seems to me There is no place I’d rather be So leave your heart at home Doesn’t matter where you roam Leave your heart at home Doesn’t matter where you roam Leave your heart at home No matter where you... The path you choose can lead to hell and back So I’ll take my chances here right off the beaten track You know the world outside can be a Cold and lonely place You blow in like the wind And leave without a trace

Old Souls 03:53
Old Souls You got a crooked halo Got a crooked smile Back seat, lay low Partners in crime Young hearts, old souls Follow everywhere you go Same old story It’s the same old show Old souls, bad habits Gonna be the death of me Take you with me when it’s time to go Eyes wild with fire And your wicked heart Can only be one outcome Known from the start Should of seen it coming Til’ death us part Young hearts, old souls Follow everywhere you go Same old story It’s the same old show Old souls, bad habits Gonna be the death of me Take you with me when it’s time to go Young hearts, old souls Haunt me everywhere I go Same old story It’s the same old show Young hearts, bad habits Gonna be the death of me Take you with me now it’s time...

Down On My Luck In a cold that would cut you Right down to the bone I’m sitting here all alone The nighttime has fallen Right out with me And I don’t feel the need to atone And I can’t help but wondering Where I’ve gone wrong Wondering how this can be ‘Cause I’m down, down on my luck Crawling in circles I can’t get up I try to call you You just won’t pick up Guess I’m down, down on my luck Well the sirens are wailing All over this town So loud that you can’t hear a word And the trees are howling Right back at the wind Yeah just trying to be heard And I can’t help but wonder what you’re doing now Are you doing the same thing as me ‘Cause I’m down, down on my luck Crawling in circles I can’t get up I try to call you You just won’t pick up Guess I’m down, down on my luck
9.
After All 03:40
After All You caught the last train to a town called No Return Hellbent to crash and burn Locked up your heart and closed the door on all the world Hear no evil, speak no words Last call for loneliness, the bar is closing soon But you can’t call time on the blues Smoking Dead End Specials yeah and howling at the moon Tomorrow always comes too soon Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans Love is what happens when you’re holding out your hand Time catches up with you, it comes for us all After all... Feeling left for dead, cut down before your prime Waste all your money wasting time Everyone’s struggling yeah the plight of humankind Can’t grasp the life you fantasise Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans Love is what happens when you’re holding out your hand Time catches up with you, it comes for us all After all... Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans Love is what happens when you’re holding out your hand Time catches up with you, it comes for us all So don’t waste your life away and fly before you fall Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans Love is what happens when you’re holding out your hand Time catches up with you, it comes for us all After all... So sing along, get involved

Born Ancient 03:02
Born Ancient Born ancient I was Or so I've been told When they made you they must of Broke the mould Right now this minute We've never been so old That’s the sort of thinking that Takes its toll Sometimes I’m up Sometimes I’m down Stuck in a rut On the wrong side of town You gotta get lost now Before you’ll be found Sink then swim Until you drown Isn't that just the way of the world For every little boy and girl Got more than you need ‘Til it's less than theirs Got nothing to believe ‘Til somebody cares Take me far away Take me far away Take me far away... Isn't that just the way of the world For all you little boys and girls Got more than you need ‘Til it's less than theirs Got nothing to believe ‘Til somebody cares
