Lyrics

1. Sex Ain’t Love

Red light green light she goes all night
[?] how I play she only wanna dance
Up down left right honey don’t you look alive
She got an itch that she wants me to scratch
She don’t want me to get too attached she said.

[Chorus:]
Sex ain’t love
Honey why you play me so tough
We can do this all night long
But baby sex ain’t love.

You know that always she gives what she wanna get,
No no yes yes I can’t even take a guess
All the table on the floor
Bring your wrists against the door
Messing with my heart feel with my head
[?] that’s when she said, she says

[Chorus:]
Sex ain’t love
Honey why you ride me so rough
We can get messed up with you all night long
Sex ain’t love.
Sex ain’t love
Honey why you play me so tough
We can get messed up with you all night long
Sex ain’t love.

Late for work late with the rent
All I wanna do is get on you again

Come on now
Come on now
Mm give me what I need
Said now baby
Oh yeah you know, you know

[Chorus:]

Sex ain’t love oh no no
Sex ain’t love, sex ain’t love,
Sex ain’t love.

2. Innocence Gone

Oh yeah

She was perfect seventeen

Tellin [?] the think my heart
We don’t find a place to stop
Show you what I’m feelin.

[Chorus:]
Here we [?] all away, all night long
One bottle of that [?]
and now innocence was gone.

She saved that feeling too
Should I know what we should do
I think I found the perfect [?]
Yes a place [?] dark
and even we found a place to park
I’m get in time hot.

[Chorus:]
And we [?] all away, all the way, all night long
One bottle that [?] and now innocence was gone.
Now we [?] all the way to our favorite song
[?] broke that our innocence was gone.

Said [?] sex and love will make it
So [?] no right now is so good and I can’t stop shaking
I was young and green
She was perfect seventeen

[Chorus]

Innocence was gone
Innocence was gone.

3. Snake

When you walk into a room
like you’ve been eating all your life out some silver spoon
and your life sucking all of your shit
like you are so damn sure everybody is fighting in to win
and you are shy as you can be
and you don’t want nothing unless is coming for free
you’re disrespect got me seeing red
and you won’t quit …my arms….chop off your head

like a snake in the grass
when you take you don’t ask
think you get it over on me
listen up

snaaake
snaaake

is with some pretty little words around confuse their minds
now listen up I know you well
and I sure I don’t need the kind of joke you’re trying to sell

like a snake in the grass
well you take you don’t ask
and you think you get it over on me

listen
you’re a snake in the grass
well you take you don’t ask
think you get it over on me

snaaake

snaaake

4. Dusty’s Revenge

Her ride away into the shadow
You’re the ride away with my revenge.

Dusty’n death fill my [?] in my body and my soul
’cause I wanna [?] my bones
High up on the redge I will lay and wait
Can you feel me like you did twenty years ago and I.
Night calls me slowly and true
You better watch coming to you.

[Chorus:]
Come on ride ride until my sunset’s gone
Come on ride feel the anger coming on strong
Come on ride I won’t stop, I won’t drop
Till I ride was wrong with you.

Get my pay back revenge you help your way.

Ohh

[Chorus x2]

I won’t stop, I won’t stop
Ride away into the shadows.

5. Home

Home is friendly space
Home is a familiar face inside the door
All curled up on the bedroom floor.
Home is where I find the bed
some place to lead my head to morning comes
singing here comes the sun.
Does it matter where I go or what I do
I can’t lie you know it’s true
It ain’t home without you.

Some people spend their days
Lost in a heartless haze out in the cold if I may be so bold
That life is not for me ’cause every day I see a better way
And I can surely say.

[Chorus:]
Does it matter how many days come by
Or how many times I feel and touch the sky
Does it matter where I go or what I do
It ain’t home without you.

It ain’t home, oh you know
That I’m lost all alone
It ain’t home
Home is friendly space
Home is a familiar face inside the door
All curled up on the bedroom floor.
Home is where I find the bed
some place to lead my head to morning comes
singing here comes the sun.

[Chorus:]
Does it matter how many days come by
Or how many times feel and touch the sky
Does it matter where I go or what I do
It ain’t home without you.

6. What Love Can Do

Everything is greater than our rose
Didn’t think it will rain this hard
Ever since you took your love away from me
I thought I am a super man and
You were Lois Lane but in to real life
That sounds so insane and I knew just what love can do
Makes us crazy
Makes us fly
Makes me call your phone
A hundred times
That’s what love can do
Makes us sick
Makes us lie
Makes us cry a thousand rivers at night
That’s what love can do
Make a man out of you

Everything is complicated
I used to dream x-rated
Now I only dream of you in my arms
Then I knew just what love can do
Makes us crazy
Makes us fly
Makes me call your phone
A hundred times
That’s what love can do
Makes us sick
Makes us lie
Makes us cry a thousand rivers at night
That’s what love can do
Make a man out of you

Ain’t no way our love left alive
Ain’t no man that I know that survived
Ain’t no way our love left alive
Ain’t no man that I know that survived

Then I knew just what love can do
Makes us crazy
Makes us fly
Makes you call your phone
A hundred times
That’s what love can do
Makes us sick
Makes me sigh
Makes us cry a thousand rivers at night
That’s what love can do

7. Life’s a Song

Life’s a paper to the flame
From the cradle to the grave

It’s the memories trapped inside
We see anything that we want to see
But all where really hoping for
Is that someone will love us

It’s the step we make when we give and take
It’s loved ones gone that did nothing wrong
When all they really needed was someone to listen
With out conditions

Life’s a paper to the flame
A crazy fools game

Life’s a sweet song
With outlaws and angels
Makes us cry but we sing along
Life’s a song

It’s a cigarette after making love
It’s a rainy day on your wedding day
When all you really wanted was blue sky’s and rainbows
It’s a mustard stain on your baby’s dress
It’s the flowers laid when we’re laid to rest
Feels like heaven is falling

Life’s a paper to the flame
It’s crazy fools game

Life’s a sweet song
With outlaws and angels
Makes us cry but we sing along
Life is a song

Where all degenerates- working class
The more things hurt the more they last

It’s the memories trapped inside
We see anything that we want to see
But all where really hoping for is that someone will love us

Life’s a sweet song –
With outlaws and angels
Makes us cry but we sing along

Life is a song
Life is a song
Life is a song
Life is a song

Life’s a paper to the flame

8. Show Must Go On

You bought your tickets to the show
I’m in my room all alone
Ticking time bomb set to blow
All I wanna do is go
Come on let’s go

You work your ass every day
Oh you know there’s hell to pay
Your life’s a lock
I got the key
Let the music set you free
Just let it be

Whatever happens let it go
Cause the show must go on
The show must go on

Hear all the bad news all around
Trying hard to keep you down
Gotta change it on the chin
Don’t you ever let it in
Don’t let it in

Whatever happens let it go
Cause the show must go on
The show must go on

Show ’em Joey!

There is only one thing that you know
Whatever happens let it go
Cause the show must go on
The show must go on

9. Cocaine Freight Train

Hot [?] says nowhere to go,
Hot as the dessert, she stings like a rose.
Waiting for someone to get her that text,
Protection, the friction, so good in a text.
Dance with the devil and she’s in control,
Give her the chance and she’ll burn thorough your soul.
Faster and faster we head by disaster
There’s no slowing down till we fail!

[Chorus:]
Now I’m busy like a freight train,
Tired of being insane!
Money I don’t care,
Come on you, I want more, and more, and more!

She got me wrapped around [?] like a [?]
Nothing outside of this room means a thing.
Every last touch [?] chosen for more,
Too late for leaving when locking the door.
Dance with the devil and she’s in control,
Give her the chance and she’ll burn thorough your soul.
Faster and faster we head by disaster
There’s no slowing down till we fail!

Man busy like a freight train,
Tired of being insane!
Money I don’t care,
Come on, I want more, and more and more!

[Chorus]

Faster and faster we head by disaster
There’s no slowing down,
Tired of being insane!
Money I don’t care,
Come on, I want more, and more and more!

10. Found Forever

Found Forever:

I see it out on the horizon
The clouds are clearing from my vision today.
You were a light among the shadows
I felt your heat from a mile away.
Over and over I hear a voice in my head
Telling me and it’s getting better and

Chorus:
I want you near, want you now
More than forever
And you finish me, wait and see
We have found forever.
I know we both might have stumbled
The past is gone in just a blink of your eyes.
We can’t help move a little closer
Our perfect fit is such a perfect surprise.
Over and over you whisper into my ear
Don’t you ever let me go. ‘Cause

Chorus:
I want you near, want you now
More than forever
And you finish me, wait and see
We have found forever.

I know that sure as the sun’s gonna rise
How I love the way that I look in your eyes.

I see it out on the horizon
The clouds are clearing from my vision and

Chorus:
I want you near, want you now
More than forever
And you finish me wait and see
We have found forever.

Chorus:
I want you near, want you now
More than forever
You finish me wait and see
We have found forever.

Want you now…

(R. Mason)

11. Candy Man

The most celebrated bachelor,
Dedicated to his sport.
Was it love that he was after?
Was the hookers down the hall?
You talked business in a back room,
With a banner [?]
Without you, Candy Man can’t say!
You made a step upon a Sunday,
It will erase your Monday!
He left her laying on the back floor,
Yeah, she’ll call him when she needs some more!

[Chorus:]
Without you
Everything without his presence [?]
Without you
Everything in life you’d treasure,
You’ll fall upon the rainbow there!
Without you
Nothing should taste so sweet,
You’re the kind of girl that the Candy Man needs.

And live the day your way,
Could make her pain go away,
She could make the pain go away,
We could make the pain go away,
We could make [?] your way!
He could make your life go away!
He could make your feelings go away,
Get up catch your ass in every way!

[Chorus:]
Everything in life you’d treasure,
You’ll fall upon the rainbow there!
Without you
Everything in life is precious, we finally seen the sun!
Everything in life you’d treasure,
You’ll fall upon the [?]
Nothing should taste so sweet,
You’re the kind of girl that the Candy Man needs.

Who needs you?
Who needs you?
He could make your life go away!
He could make your life go away!
He could make your life go away!
He could make your pain go away!

12. Sunshine

She is the kind that gets you thinking
When you tell your friends about
When she’s gone you turn to drinking
And it turns you upside down
I don’t know what this one did to me
Stop my heart beat every time she looks at me
Damn sure there is no doubt
What she got I never wanna be without
She is like she is like sunshine
Walking down on me
She is like she is like sunshine
Takes the clouds away from me

Like an angel send from somewhere
She is a diamond in the weeds
When she turns the devil on you
Give her everything she needs

I don’t know what this one did to me
Stop my heart beat every time she looks at me
Damn sure there is no doubt
What she got I never wanna be without
She is like she is like sunshine
Walking down on me
She is like she is like sunshine
Takes the clouds away from me

I stop put me wonder
Live some make me wonder
Didn’t make you just for me
Tell me tell me please
Oh yeah

She is like she is like sunshine
Walking down on me
She is like she is like sunshine
Takes the clouds away from me

13. Tears in the City

I’ve been thinking about this lately
Feel we’re growin on
This tears on my pillow and [?] all night long
I’ve been slow searching lately
and I think I found the home
Lights in my hearted [?] all night long
Maybe it’s the city old the glitter and the gold
can’t find out way here we can’t make it home.
I’ll be on [?] but I need you to follow
We you range we’re leaving tomorrow.

[Chorus:]
Tears in the city good night
Too less people got you left to fight
Don’t know if we’re wrong but it’s got to feel right
There’ll be tears in the city tonight.

Bottles in the [?] by the bed
[?] if were livin we’re livin with the dead
Don’t get me wrong but I got you by my side
I know there’s a reason we’re runin [?]
I’ll be on [?] but I need you to follow
We you range we’re leaving tomorrow.

[Chorus x2:]
Tears in the city good night
Too less people got you left to fight
Don’t know if we’re wrong but it’s got to feel right
There’ll be tears in the city tonight.

Tears in the city tonight.
Tears in the city tonight.

14. The Last Straw

I read the news today
That you are going your own way today
Broken glass against my wall
Shout [?] always wanted all
You’re gonna see some day
You can’t play with life this way
It will judge it will bite
It will cut you in a bite
Chew you up until you got it right
That’s right
Your song is un new
Your words are so untrue
I lost my patience in dealing with you
That’s the last straw
No more blood for you to drawn
That’s the last straw
I am not here to take your [?]
That’s the last straw
Just a picture in the wall

You are taking everything
You put it all away
That’s the last straw

Now I found my way
You can get the hell away
Broken dreams and ruin face
Run over everything
That’s in your way
Your song is so un new
Your words are so untrue
I lost my patience in dealing with you
That’s the last straw
No more blood for you to drawn
That’s the last straw
I am not here to take your [?]
That’s the last straw
Just a picture in the wall

To [?] I had to give
Never out for you
This is the way to live/leave
I am closing the door

That’s the last straw
No more blood for you to drawn
That’s the last straw
I am not here to take your [?]
That’s the last straw
Just a picture in the wall
