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...

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....

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?

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.....

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...

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...

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.....

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.....

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.....
