Track Name: Don't Need a Lover
What do you want from me?
You know I never keep what I don't need
Maybe I'm tired of wasting time
Maybe I'm tired of hearing lies
Or maybe I'm just tired
You're all wrong but I'm alright
I don't need a lover to get through the night

I'm sorry if you need me
I'm sorry - it's not the same anymore
I'm sorry if you believed in me
I'm sorry
I don't need a lover no more.....

Don't - don't you shout at me
You can't say anything I'll believe
Maybe I'm tired of losing sleep
Maybe I'm tired of you using me
And you're too blind to see

You're all wrong....

How can you say this to me - yu've the nerve
The nerve to tell me you miss me
Well baby I'm tired of hearing lies...
Baby I'm tired of wasting time
Baby I'm just tired....

I'm sorry...
Track Name: Take This Life
Sometimes when I'm sitting on my own
I think about the future and being all alone
Twilight and the night is settling in
I think of all my personal thoughts.
Ones I can't tell my friends

I go out on the balcony above the city buildings
And wonder why the memories always seems so gilded with gold
Don't it feel peculiar just living without letting go?
It's so odd that I'd wonder what's to stop me from getting old?

Take this life
If the measure of a man is not what he does
But how he FEELS about what he does
Then take this life
'Cuz the things and people that I want,
I never get
Or else I just don't get enough....

Nothing can change the things I say
And no one understands just how to fade the pain away
I live with anger every day
You want to come with me?
You better learn to hate....

I go out on the balcony above the city buildings
And wonder why the memories always seem to catch me off guard
And don't it feel peculiar just living without letting go
It's so odd that I'd wonder what's to stop me from jumping off...

Take this life....
Track Name: No Illusions
We’re alright –
You’re the only one I know
Who’ll let me go to walk the night
I’m alright
You never come to look for me
You’re too afraid of what you’ll find

Send your bastard moon to hunt me
If my heart’s pale fire fails to warm you
From the cold
Send your haunted eyes to wreck me….

Is it wrong?
Is it right?
If I loved at all
would you be happy?

We’re alright
I can’t lie and say I love you
Must you lie and say you love me?

If the ice in you is what must be
Why do you fear the ice in me?

Is it wrong?
Is it right?
If I loved at all
would you be happy?
Track Name: This Time
How can you do this to me - look what I've done for you
It's obvious you don't see...

What is this look on your face - why are you so surprised?
I'm putting you in your place 'cos you don't realize
You think you know me don't you?
You think you own me don't you?
What am I to do confronted by this bullshit?

You better watch your step - I might just tear you down
I'll tear you down
I'll tear you down
I'll tear you down

You look so confident, see I can do without you
Don't you DARE walk away - when you know I'm not through
Didn't you ask around? Find out what I'm really like?
I've done this lots before babe - you're just the next in line....

You better watch your step.....
Track Name: Is It Wrong
We’re alright –
You’re the only one I know
Who’ll let me go to walk the night
I’m alright
You never come to look for me
You’re too afraid of what you’ll find

Send your bastard moon to hunt me
If my heart’s pale fire fails to warm you
From the cold
Send your haunted eyes to wreck me….

Is it wrong?
Is it right?
If I loved at all
would you be happy?

We’re alright
I can’t lie and say I love you
Must you lie and say you love me?

If the ice in you is what must be
Why do you fear the ice in me?

Is it wrong?
Is it right?
If I loved at all
would you be happy?
Track Name: You're Not Innocent
Your shadow walks beside you just to check for signs of danger
Your guardian angel checks your face for any signs of changes
And in your briefcase there's a number that your wife does not know

And in your mind you think you're honest - but you're not innocent
And in your soul you're sure you've fooled her - but you're not innocent
And in your heart I'm sure you love her.... But you're not innocent
'Cos you're with me....

For all her questions you have words that you consider answer
But all your answers are are lies that you consider standard
So when she asks you where you were last night - you say alone....

And in your mind...
Track Name: I Sold my Soul for Rock and Roll
This pallid face you look upon was born of neither hate nor desire
This barren ground we're standing on was left here neither to forgive nor inspire
And as we walk - as we run - as we hate - our love lives on....

This sky of fire I give to you
As the last thing I can give you, and the least that I can do
This sky of fire I give to you
For me there's no tomorrow
And all I have is you - so I give to you this sky of fire.....

These peaceful fields will soon be drenched in pain
This graceful flow destined to die
And with the blood of love a thousand years
Will pass within this land of ours
You must come and stand with me upon the shore and you will see

This sky of fire...
Track Name: What Went Wrong
I think my love that the silence in your eyes may well be killing me
I think my love that you're going quite insane and going willingly...

I won't be there this time
I won't be there to guide
I won't be there this
I won't be there beside you
Sorry....

I think my love that you call my your love 'cos you don't know my name
And I think my love that night after night girl after girl, aren't we all the same?

Listen to me:

I won't be there.....
Track Name: This Sky of Fire
On the back of an old beat up Harley
You and me we're gonna drive
Drive into the nameless desert I keep seeing in your eyes
I keep thinking maybe we could drive forever if we tried
But I'm afraid forever might not be enough time

You think you're all grown up now
But yo'e really just a cynical child

You dragged your broken body down the road of broken dreams
And somehow you wound up back here
With a couple dreams left over, or at least that'show it seems
Honey, that's exactly what I fear....

'Cos I want no illusions

You got some nerve saying I'm the one that lives too hard
Wasn't it you I saw all by yourself in the churchyard
Standing over your lover's grave when she cut your apron strings with a chainsaw
And you shed no tears,
At least none that I saw....

You think you're all grown up now....

There's a road down by the river....
It ends in forever.....
And if we die, big deal, so we die.....

You think you're all grown up now,
but you're really just a cynical child,
And I'll brook no illusions.....
Track Name: I'll Tear You Down
Had a lover, loved me true
He said I sold my soul for the blues
I said honey Woah - what you don't know....
Honey I sold my soul for rock n roll....

Had a lover, while back
He said baby you givin me a heart attack
Cos these blues is way too fast and I ain't no kid
I said honey this ain't no blues...

Rock n roll is what it is....

I sold my soul for rock n roll

I couldn't think of any quicker way to die before I get old

I sobered up this morning, looked at his face
And remembered why I got drunk in the first place
I sold my soul for rock n roll....
So I had another drink and said I don't wanna know....

You see, I met a girl named Micah who said
I got one real bad condition:
You know you going crazy when you start dating musicians....
Aw, tell me something I don't know....

I sold my soul.....
At least I know Ima die before I get old.....
