Roses Fade Blue Hanging on a high wire Feet dangling in the air I might not ever come down And it’s driving me to despair I want to make amends By bringing you a gift Shake away this madness And lead lonely days into a crash When Roses Fade Blue Let’s talk about the good life How it will never last By hanging around street corners The changes came too fast I heard about the newborn That child ain’t got no name Tell me where are the parents Tell me who is to blame When Roses Fade Blue Uuuuh When Roses Fade Blue Uuuuh For sure you don’t know it You’re leaning out too far So brave while watching others Trying to forget who you are When Roses Fade Blue Uuuuh When Roses Fade Blue Uuuuh When Roses Fade Blue When Roses Fade Blue

Guilty But Innocent Long about ten years ago I met a girl named Peggy Rose I knew she was my best friends mate But thinking about that, was just too late She caught me with her shiny eyes And sent me straight to paradise Wasn’t fair, but sure felt right As Peg and me went out that night Now I know it was love at first sight Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent Since then we’re still a couple now But my old friend still shouts it out He wanna break us apart By telling lies and spitting hard Anyone can see his life’s a mess And I’m to blame, I must confess I know for him it’ll never be right Since I took his girl out that night And fell in love at first sight Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent of love Love I know it’s hard, but it feels right You can’t defend against love at first sight Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent Uuh, we’re guilty but innocent of love

Time Can Heal After the warning The one last call I should have known Before I let it fall But I don’t need nothing Except for your love Please take me back Or turn me off Tell me time can heal And show me how it feels Truth may hurt sometimes But we will find a rhyme After we calm down At the end of a storm We’re still together And now even more We want this forever For our love to grown better I know you need me Like I need you Tell me time can heal And show me how it feels Truth may hurt sometimes But we will find a rhyme This is you and me Walking the years of our lives No matter how many miles Show me how it feels To believe that time can heal Time can heal

A Spell On Me I said: No, I'm not jealous, my love is stronger than yours You said: You love me but you feel like you're in jail I said: I love you so, you’re everything I want You said: Oh that's nice, but you don't wanna live in chains I don't know why you satisfied me I loved you baby But you, you put a spell on me Put a spell on me I said: It's killing me, suspicion a condition of love You said: You're sorry, but you can't change my mind I said: Well, help me and gimme just a simple sign You Said: You gave me all you had, it’s not enough Not enough, no I don't know why you satisfied me I loved you baby But you, you put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me I said: Keep the table, keep the chairs and I wish you luck You said: Oh thank you and let’s stay in touch Ooh, what a lie I don't know why you satisfied me I loved you baby But you, you put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me Put a spell on me I put a spell on you

Club Of Indecision Everybody’s looking for something To build up in their lives Everybody’s sneaking on someone Watching with them jealous eyes No one dares to tell you And no one needs to know I know this is our living But I can’t, I can’t tell you why Welcome to the club of indecision Welcome to “I don’t know anything at all” I know nothing, nothing at all There are too many good reasons And too many ways to go It looks like it’s easy When you got no choice, have no choice at all Welcome to the club of indecision Welcome to “I don’t know anything at all” Dodododododododo Dodododododododo Welcome to the club of indecision Welcome to the club of indecision Welcome to “I don’t know anything at all” Cause I know nothing And I don’t know you

Ordinary 04:15
Ordinary Talked against the wall An echo for an answer I tried so hard but never really understood Stayed at home and hid With nothing but a riddle A solution ain’t as easy as life should be Did you ever know your right But drowned in doubts Have you ever seen it clear Despite the clouds Did you ever walk away Then turned around It is ordinary, so ordinary Time’s catching up But me, oh I’m a crawler It’s the going not the getting there You know, I drew it on the floor Now looking at this picture No it ain’t what I used to see before Did you ever know your right But drowned in doubts Have you ever seen it clear Despite the clouds Did you ever walk away Then turned around It is ordinary, so ordinary Can we still believe Reaching out to receive All we do is walk in circles It’s the going not the getting there Did you ever know your right But drowned in doubts Have you ever seen it clear Despite the clouds Did you ever walk away Then turned around It is ordinary, so ordinary It is ordinary, so ordinary

Bag 03:57
Bag I got a bag full of emotions Standing in the exit line Trying to clear my mind of you Buzzing like a neon sign But tell me Are “Fuck Off” our final words Can’t believe it’s all said and done And it happened to us No I, I don’t wanna cry for you No I, I really don’t Looks like things don’t always turn out the way they’re planned Cheap love, fast sex Just dried out souls in a wasted land Staying away from arguing means staying away from love No I, I don’t wanna cry for you No I, I don’t really wanna cry No I, I don’t wanna cry for you No I, I don’t really wanna cry I got a bag full of emotions Which I’d love to pour out I’d dig a hole and fill it up with .... No I, I don’t wanna cry for you No I, I don’t really wanna cry ‎ No I, I don’t wanna cry for you No I, I don’t wanna cry for you

Forever is a Long Time You can dream until your bed is broken Cry until you drown Speak till every word you’ve spoken just goes round and round But there’s sirens in the air tonight And a body they can find You could go to jail forever now, and forever is a long, long time boy Forever is a long, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long, long time Oh, little black bird seen what you done But he wont tell on you Another man seen you wave that gun and You got a rid of him too Thunder claps above your head and The clock keeps ticking time Nothing but bars, a bowl and a bed Forever is a long, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long time, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long time, long time And I said this before I mean it even more this time The county line is an hour walking I suggest you run, One hundred years of stripes and working don’t sound too much fun Why’d you go and do it, did the devil wreck your mind? Luck can’t pull you through it now Forever is a long, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long time, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long time, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long time, long time Forever is a long, long time, boy Forever is a long time, long time

Summertime 03:12
Summertime Summertime, and the living is easy Fish are jumping and the cotton is high Oh, you’re daddy’s rich and you’re mama’s good looking So hush, little baby, don’t you cry One of these mornings, you going to rise up singing Then you’ll spread you’re wings and you’ll take the sky But ‘til that morning, there’s a nothing can harm you With you’re daddy and you’re mommy standing by Summertime Summertime Summertime, and living is easy Living is easy Living is easy, easy Cause it’s summertime Oooh

Find 03:21
Find Standing in front of a burning crowd Watching the lights hit the ground where a man Juggles in the ring Coloured makeup around his eyes Can’t make the sadness in him die But their laughs ease his mind for awhile You better find what you’re looking for Find which way to go Find something of your own And make it right for you Back in his cabin on wheels at night He writes jokes by candlelight And weeps himself to sleep Ain’t it the way it’s always been before When you’ve got all But still want more then you are But who are you You better find what you’re looking for Find which way to go Find something of your own Open up and see it clear And make it right for you Cause it feels good Walking your own parade It feels good Just laying in the shade You better find what you’re looking for Find some way to go Find something of your own And make it right for you You better find what you’re looking for Find which way to go Find something of your own (something you can call you own) And make it right for you You better find You better find You better find You better find

Don’t Want No More You haven’t said one word While we’re hanging around the table My glass is still full of you But it feels empty and smells of sorrow That won’t die Talking won’t get us further When I’m the only one saying anything How can you turn a blind eye to it all ooh You don’t want it Don’t want me no more You don’t need it Don’t need me no more We don’t have much Much in common anymore It’s split and pieces are missing Love is backed against the wall Let’s put it down You don’t want it Don’t want me no more You don’t need it Don’t need me no more You don’t want it Don’t want me no more You don’t need it Don’t need me no more No more No more
