The Only One 04:13
I am not the only one Who won't be happy If you go and leave me I am not the only one Who won't be happy If you go and leave me now And I don't mean To come across mean I just want you To think through what you're doing And I don't know Why you have to go I just hope you Have thought through what you're doing And I am not the only one Who thinks you Are not being true I am not the only one Who thinks you Are not being true to yourself And I don't know Why you have to go When you tell me You love me as you're leaving But I can't stand To be a bad man I just hope you Have thought through what you're doing And I am not the only one Who won't be happy If you go and leave me I am not the only one Who won't be happy If you go and leave me now.

Sametime 02:45
Every song is in the same key Everyone looks the same to me And you can't go back from where you came And expect everything to be exactly the same And if you don't know what I mean Then neither do I And I am trying to please you At the same time At the same time What's wrong? With standing around Got to keep your feet on the ground And keep your pride down But still I can't help from feeling There's something more So tell me, which is the ceiling And which is the floor And you get nothing for free 'Til the day you day And then it all gets taken away At the same time At the same time At the same time At the same time.

That's Life 03:15
This life, you know Will let you go Once and for all These things For all These things All that you love And you are a part of And apart from All of this I cannot help but miss A certain friend of mine Who I cannot find And not a reason or rhyme Or relation to time And if you're real I wonder how you feel And how you deal With the pain You couldn't hide away When this morning came You were far away And there are words left unsaid That I wanted to say.
4.
Think you've seen all before Then someone kicks down your front door And knocks you for six And hits you with tricks You never saw No, not before He's like a child Don't talk too much And don't you talk back to him 'cause he won't like that much He don't have too much time For you and your vengeful and unblinking eye And now you are close to death And I have things I must confess And now you can see that I've been a spoilt brat And time, time can roll your eyes Hey sister, let them roll your eyes She's not too sure The what are we If not obscure Anomalies In life's drifting unprecise And cruel mind I, well here am I I hope that you will take me Take me on home I wanna go home Take me on down, down, down I wanna go home, sweet home Wherever that may be.

You were growing tired of your lovers expectations I was unadmired and in need of good relations You'd been looking pretty good and I did not keep my distance And this is how we caved to sweet loves insistence Don't worry babe I will take the blame Don't worry babe I'll take the blame [whistle] Don't worry babe I will take the blame Don't worry babe I'll take the blame Oh, let my head roll! Let every member of your family curse my name For once these things do unfold I will take the blame And though you may be far away And me I may still be here babe There's surely a feeling that remains For just as any criminal must win what is unwinnable It's you I want My sweet ill gotten gains.
7.
I knew this one I knew this one I knew this one Now she is gone All we wanted to be Laughing constantly Never knowing disease Voices calling to me I can hear their screams I can see the whites in their eye I know what it means I know I too must die I knew this one I knew this one Now she is gone Now she is gone I know I too must go on.

Darlin' Wait 05:08
I will leave behind this ghostly memory That which I cannot true realize And I will be as a newborn baby Without clothing or crude disguise Darlin' wait, must you be so soon leaving On a night so long as this one Won't you stay for a little while longer And for a while all this is wrong can be undone And I will not call thee enemy You who I do love and could not despise For I know it is my own weakness That which you do antagonize.

O! The Shame 02:28
I am in your mind tonight But I won't be back again for a long, long time And why? Why must you be so unbecoming In a life that's so mind-numbing It makes you want to die Ba, ba, ba We, we have no time for silly games We'd just as soon be on our way Into a land unkown You, you have no way of knowing The true direction you are going Until it leads you on home Ba, ba, ba And I would be there for you And I would not be untrue Though I may tell the odd lie Or maybe two O! the Shame O! the Shame Ba, ba, ba.

Disregard what I say With a joke made in bad taste And I will take this hand To your pretty, unwashed face You're only just a couple years older Baby don't talk down And I will try my best To act unimpressed As I follow you around From this life to the next From one supermarket to the next Don't you call my name 'Cause I will be gone babe I'm on my way To wherever it is that I'm going to And the next time we meet I will try to keep discrete All that you told me When you were lonely Yes, I'm on my way I'm on my way I won't be late For this most important of appointments I've gotta prove myself to myself Before I can be worth a thing To anybody else It's you, honey who else? But don't you call my name Call my name Don't call my name Call my name Don't call my name.
13.
I know your intentions Are good with what you say And true you make me happy In a temporary way But we both know it's not Not for me And for this you should not Be sorry You don't need me to tell you I can't say anyway And you won't hear me If I tell you It is better off this way.
