Sometimes you need some elbow grease to make troubled times to cease So I took the blues by surprise Like a cowboy kept my powder dry and waited ‘till I saw the whites in its eyes I’m a needle in the hay but you’re a pin on the map and I count on you No matter what they say Whatever we have we got nothing to lose Metallic muscles are moving strong Black blood is flowing on Far away is close at hand I feel good flying down the road Sometimes I drive slow, sometimes fast - if I can I’m a needle…
I’m not wasting your time and you don’t waste mine can you see that? I’m willing to admit that we got something in this something I’ve never had I remembered our times some were bad, some were fine and some were great Then you asked “Jesus Christ, are you crying?” “No, I got something in my eye” it was love that didn’t fail
While ago there was a party they held as a public stunt I was there and I felt like Robin Hood I think they were afraid my presence could spoil their fun for good And I was hoping that it would I was there for you If heads I win, tails you lose Let’s flip the coin Trying everything to prove a point But when it rains, it pours It’s a package deal My heart has hit the fan and I’m getting mean And though I promised myself I’d see which way the wind blows now I didn’t do it and I now see where it leads So here I am going out of control, I’m unsafe at any speed I don’t know what I’m doing behind the wheel If heads I win…
The New Year 04:35
I got my economical smile on my face while standing in a crowded hall The girls gossip in the kitchen and give you a stare if you walk by their door Let’s hope that the new year brings Peace and love you know, that sort of thing And don’t worry, I’ll find the right track I just have to try (10, 9, 8) everything else before that You can’t buy happiness or love, yes I know But let me tell you how I feel I already got love and I’m happy so now - money is all I need Let’s hope that the new year brings Fame and fortune you know, that sort of thing And don’t worry, I’ll find the right track I just have to try (7, 6, 5) everything else before that -Solo- Let’s hope…
He added more fuel to the fire and said some things he would regret It caused her to run upstairs crying and to shut her door with an angry kick And now she’s leaving home without a warning the moon shows her the way wherever she’s going Runaway with her flying shoes on She has made up her mind She’ll find whatever she’s looking for and won’t come back this time Her daddy sure knows how to make money her family is wealthy and rich But she really hates the way how he does it It really doesn’t fit with her ethics And now she’s leaving home without a warning the moon shows her the way wherever she’s going Runaway with her...
Gloomnotes 03:38
The sky is breathing in and the clouds are about to crack I can foretaste the rain and my shirt is glued on my back Sinister air on my shoulders On the roadside the once whispering leaves are all quiet Don’t get crazy, get even that’s what you believe in But can you fall on your feet? Don’t look back ‘cause it’s bad for you when you’ve got enough blue to paint the waves of the sea I remember how she looked when driving back from the Home Like a method actress she tried to get into her new role Don’t ask me what could happen If you have to ask for the price you can’t afford it Don’t get crazy…
She and her mom got their ages reversed Whenever mother fell she was there to nurse Her life is tough but sure makes her qualified to deal with the mean and the jealous and the violent kind "Leave her alone" I said "leave her alone or I’ll cut you down and it won’t take long" Well I guess I should not have said anything at all Bleeding all over her kitchen floor
