Track Name: Little One
You're highly strung today
A string could ping any minute, and that's ok
I just want to be out of your way
When you're like this, I'll give you a kiss
and you'll say "Just go away!"

I don't know, where I'll be
A few months from now
I hope you'll be with me, somehow

You watch it grow
You cry, I ask why, you say you don't know
I suppose that's why you're real
Cuz you feel it with your soul

And I have no idea, where I'll be
A year from today
I hope you'll come with me anyway
Track Name: Now That You're Mine
Nevermind what you said now
You do it all the time
And don't get so upset now
Honey quit with your crying
Because I'm never ever gonna forget now
I'll give you a piece of my mind
No, I'm never ever gonna forget now
Now that you're mine

Now that you're mine

Well, everybody agrees
That we look good as a pair
And that's news to me
'Cause I wasn't aware

But when you can close your eyes
And believe that something is there
That's when you know you've got your share
And life is longer than living
But I don't care

Now that you're mine.
Track Name: At Yr Convenience
Come into my house and tell me the truth
You know that I would never lie to you
I haven't seen you around in such a long time
And I think you should know what's been on my mind

But the time goes so slow
And I wanted you to know
That I'm coming back tomorrow

I remember a day when you said to me
"Can't we ever agree to disagree?"
Well what we have is a case of who's-to-blame?
Where the people involved act just the same

And it makes no real sense
But I speak from experience
And I won't hang around at your convenience

No no, no no.
Track Name: One More Lullaby
Lie still, don't worry about
It's not the same
I know your game
And I'm not playing

I will, be moving along
Any day
It's nobody's fault
We're only human
I'll never see you again
No no, no no, no no no
No no, no no, no no no

And everything comes
Apart at once
"I'm not contented"
You said and you meant it
"I'm going to kill you"
Well I'm sure you will do
And I don't mind
Track Name: All Your Life
If you try and help her
Make our long life here together
More bearable, she would

But if you try to make her feel
She's got nothing down here for real
Then despair's all her good

As you once would

And I know just how much you care
How big your heart, how straight your stair
I trust you with my life

But if you throw yourself to wolves
Then you yourself are but a fool
Who holds out just a knife

All your life

And I ain't leaving tonight
To let the evil in, alright
And I know it is in me to fight
Whatever's rising up inside.
Track Name: No More Do I Care
No more arriving late
No more inviting fate
No more inciting hate

No more a thing to do
No more of me and you
Another day is through

This is what I would have come for
If I'd known that it was there
But I haven't the time to pretend anymore
And no more do I care

And now the race is run
You know I'm far from done
I've only just begun

To you my fondest friend
I'm loyal 'til the end
No matter trail or trend

And this is what I had in mind for
All those people I can't bear
You see I haven't the name to defend anymore
And no more do I car

Yes, this is what I had in mind for
All those creatures I can't bear
See I haven't the will to pretend anymore
And no more do I care

Do I care?
Do I care?
Do I care.
Track Name: Resentments
And if you keep pushing us back
Then where else can we go
To the end

And if you can't realise that
Then it won't be long 'til it shows
Up my friend

It's not a case of them versus us
But if you haven't yet, then you really must
I remember when we wiped the floor
And I remember when we asked for more

And if you think that we want it all
Then you're not even half way there
'Cause what you owe is worth so much more
And I'm not even sure that you care

It's not a case of making demands
But if you think you're innocent you aren't
I remember when the truth would be told
I remember when you spoke so bold
I remember when the distractions took hold
I remember when the last hope was sold
I remember when I watched you unfold
And I remember when you left me cold
Track Name: Pretend Song
You said that I could pretend
You said that I could pretend
You never said goodbye my friend
You said that I could pretend

Now, where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

The days dawn was on our mind
And everything was going fine
You put your hands under mind
You looked my straight in the eye

Now, how dare you now?
How dare you now?
How dare you now?

And everything I said
Made no difference at all
Everything I said
Made no difference at all.
Track Name: Goodbye To An Old Friend
What will you say
When they come to get you?
And where will you stay
When they all forget you?

Well my life has been turned upside down
And my pockets are all bare and empty
And I have not the fare to get home
Or the time for this filthy city

Hey hey, hey hey

Could you undo that thing
That caused us to lie here in fear and hatred
And long, long to be found once again
Alone and unclothed in some strangers bed.

Oh my baby blue eyed boy
You are a song to no one
You're only a master or mister
Or a man with no name on the run

And you sing,
Hey hey, hey hey

Well I wouldn't have let you down
No I would not have let you down
All the people here standing around
I would never have let you down

And while you may talk a good talk
Your plans are all untested
And all you have put away may be lost
Unwisely invested

And then what will you say
To the ones who'll come get you
And where will you stay
When they all forget you

Yes what will you say
I'll never forget you.
