Track Name: Lady Killer
LADY KILLER

You treated me stupid
You treated me bad
I bet you never realized about the magic that we had
You said that I was good for nothing and then you blew me away
I bet you never realized about the magic of it all
Didn’t you tell me I was the only one
Didn’t you tell me I was cool
Didn’t you tell me I was the only one
Now you treat me like a fool

But I’m a lady killer I don’t look back
I leave my troubles behind
I’m gonna tell you `bout the past that is on my mind
Yes I’m a lady killer I don’t look back
I leave my troubles behind
I’m gonna tell you `bout the past that is on my mind

Well you treated me stupid
You know you treated me bad
I know you never realized about the good times that we had
You said that I was good for nothing and then you threw me away
You know I bet you never realized about the magic of it all
Didn’t you tell me I was the only one; you know that you did
Didn’t you tell me I was cool
Now didn’t you tell me that I was the only one
Now you treat me like I was another one of your fools

But I’m a lady killer I don’t look back
I leave my troubles behind
I’m gonna tell you `bout the past that is on my mind
Yes I’m a lady killer I don’t look back
I leave my troubles behind
Gonna tell you `bout the past that is on my mind

I’m a lady killer I don’t look back
I leave my troubles behind
I’m gonna tell you `bout the past that is on my mind
Yes I’m a lady killer I don’t look back
I leave my troubles behind
Gonna tell you `bout the past that is on my mind
Track Name: Rain Came Down
RAIN CAME DOWN

You were telling me about the way that you loved me
You were telling me about blue skies up above me
Thunderclap in the sky
I look up with a tear in my eye

That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away
That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away

You were telling me about all kinds of sensations
You were talking about new revelations
Then I looked in the sky
I looked up with a tear in my eye

That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away
That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away

I never think about dying no more
It’s not as scary as it was before
The end is coming and you don’t know why
Just like a thief, just like a thief in the middle of the night, the middle of the night
Rain, rain came down

You were telling me about the way that you loved me
You were talking about blue skies up above me
Thunderclap in the sky
I look up with a tear in my eye

That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away
That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away

That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away
That’s when the rain came down
And washed me away

That’s when the rain came down. That’s when the rain came down
That’s when the rain came down. That’s when the rain came down
That’s when the rain came down. That’s when the rain came down
That’s when the rain came down
Track Name: Universal Person
UNIVERSAL PERSON

You were running down the highway on your bended knees
Now you're off tongue wagging with the birds and bees
You were preaching up a storm on a throne of gold
Now you're off rough riding with the rodeo

Universal person what's your point of view
When you’re out of your skin in a short while standing anew
Universal person, when the morning comes
When you’re out on a limb will you still be holding on

You were a high flying bird in a burning sky
But now you sit around waiting for the world to die
You were a man with a mission on a higher plane
But now you’re tied to the tracks of the gravy train

Universal person what's your point of view
You'll be out of your skin in a short while standing anew
Universal person, when the morning comes
When you’re out on a limb will you still be holding on
Track Name: I'll Be There
I’LL BE THERE

I met a girl ‘bout a week ago she told me that I’d better be leavin’
And when I asked her the reason why
She told me she didn’t have to give me a reason
I told her I loved her, I told her that my love was true
But when she pulled out a gun on me what was I supposed to do

I told her if you want my love I’ll be there
If you want my love I’ll be there
If you want me you know I’ll always be there
If you want my love I’ll be there

You can tear me apart if you want but don’t you leave me bleedin’
You can pull out my heart if you want to if it’ll stop me from cheatin’
You can take out my eyes, I say I won’t be needin’ ‘em
Take away my disguises, I say I won’t be needin’ ‘em

All I say is if you want my love I’ll be there
If you want my love I’ll be there
If you want me you know I’ll always be there
If you want my love I’ll be there

I’ll be on a mountainside with flowers in my hair
Dreaming of a time long forgotten now
But if you just call I’ll be there
If you want me I’ll be there
I’ll be there
I’ll be there
I’ll be there

You were talking like a back street baby with that look in your eyes
Telling me about some people you know
Well they were hiding behind their disguise
You tell me you love me but do I know your love is true
And when I tell you I love you, oh what am I supposed to do

Oh yeah if you want my love I’ll be there
If you want my love I’ll be there
If you want me you know I’ll always be there
If you want my love I’ll be there

If you want my love I’ll be there
If you want my love I’ll be there
If you want me you know I’ll always be there
I’ll be there, I’ll be there, I’ll be there
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Back To You
BACK TO YOU

In your unfailing love you will lead
The people that you have redeemed
In your strength you will guide us
To your living streams

When my heart is cold
And I don’t know what to do
Won’t you take my hand
And lead me back to you

On a narrow road I wander
Picking flowers on the way
I forget the goal before me
And so often do I stray

I saw the Lord before me
You show the wonders that I’ve seen
If only you will believe
Then men will dream dreams

On a narrow road I wander
Picking flowers on the way
I forget the goal before me
And so often do I stray

Jesus Christ is the light
Follow Jesus as he leads through
He’ll take my hand
And lead me back to you

When it’s dark and I’m lonely
And it seems like there’s no way through
Won’t you take my hand
And lead me back to you

Won’t you take my hand
And lead me back to you
Track Name: Infinity Over Zero
INFINITY OVER ZERO

You take my money, you take my time
I don’t know why you’re still running around
Yeah you, I’m on fire with desire
That’s the way it’s meant to be

I don’t wanna ever let you down
You seem to treat me like a clown now baby
You wanted me to be your hero
Now you leave me like infinity over zero

You make me nervous, you’re so refined
In ten minutes I’ll be out of my mind
Yeah you got me hoping, I’m not coping
That’s not the way it’s meant to be now

I don’t wanna ever let you down
You seem to treat me like a clown now baby
You wanted me to be your hero
Now you leave me like infinity over zero

You’ve been running so long that you might not make it any longer
You’ve been running so long that you might not make it any longer
Get your feet on the ground, stop your running around
You got me running, got me running away
You got me crying out

I needed time to decide on your love, love. I needed time to decide on your love, love
I needed time to decide on your love, love. I needed time to decide on your love, love
I needed time to decide on your love, love. I needed time to decide on your love, love

You’re so transparent, a hollow shell
You’ve got me thinking you’re the devil in hell
Yeah you got me waiting, anticipating
I feel like I’m a ball on a chain

I don’t wanna ever let you down
You seem to treat me like a clown now baby
You wanted me to be your hero
Now you leave me like infinity over zero

I don’t wanna ever let you down
You seem to treat me like a clown now sugar
You wanted me to be your hero
Now you leave me like infinity over zero
Track Name: Bound For Glory
BOUND FOR GLORY

He sits on the corner at midnight
With a newspaper in his hand
But the radio says that it’s gonna snow
And he might never leave this land

There’s a cold wind that’s a-blowin’
There’s the rain all pourin’ down
But till the bright of day he says that he’s gonna stay
Because he’s got himself a ticket on the train that’s
Bound for glory

Bound for glory, bound for glory
Bound for glory. He’s bound for glory

His clothes may be a little dirty
And his hands may be a little rough
But his faith inside, it can’t be denied
No matter how the times get tough

And when the whole wide world’s a-sinkin’
You know his feet are standing firm on the rock
So when the trumpet blows it will be time to go
He don’t wanna miss his place on the train that’s
Bound for glory

Bound for glory, bound for glory
Bound for glory. He’s bound for glory

He’s standing on the corner tonight
With his life’s work in his hands
He throws his work away and he begins to pray
For it’s by grace that he’ll enter the land

The end is nigh and the clouds are coming
And the shepherd he will come for his sheep
One final muster of the ones that trusted
And the master paid the ticket for the train that’s
Bound for glory

Bound for glory, bound for glory
Bound for glory
He’s bound for glory

Bound for glory, bound for glory
Bound for glory. He’s bound for glory
Track Name: Take A Ride
TAKE A RIDE

Are you tired of dying. Do you wanna have some fun

Are you tired of crying. Sinking in the turning of the tide
Why don’t you take a ride now baby

Do you wanna take abord it’s my rollercoaster
Come abord it’s a blast, it’s my rollercoaster
Do you wanna have some fun, you know your day has just begun
Take a ride, take a ride

Do you wanna have some fun, you know your day has just begun

Do you wanna have some fun, you know your day has just begun

Come abord, it’s a blast, it’s my rollercoaster
Do you wanna have some fun, you know your day has just begun

Are you tired of dying. Do you wanna reach the sky

Bring your dog and bring your cat, bring your Ma and bring your Pa

Do you wanna have some fun, you know your day has just begun
Take a ride, take a ride. Take a ride, Take a ride
Track Name: Let's Stay Dead
LET'S STAY DEAD

You talk about the 90's, you say it's where you wanna be
Wish I was back in the 60's 'cause that's the place for me
You talk about revolution as if it's something new
You don't know of all the navel gazing that we went through

I've got the 60's on my mind
Those miniskirts and orange blinds
They remind me how life used to be
I've got the 60's on my mind
When love was never hard to find
And life was always free and easy

You talk about the music today - well it sends me to sleep
Wish I was back in the 60's when vinyl was cheap
You talk about the drug scene - you say it gets up your nose
But when I'm back in the 60's there's other places it goes

You know the 60's blew my mind
When people used to be so kind
Where have all the funny flowers gone
I've got the 60's on my mind
Before young lovers got refined
They're now faxing all day long

I wanna go back in time, down the channels of my mind
I wanna take a trip inside my head
Get back, get down. Take your clothes off, groove around
I don't wanna live so let's stay dead

I've got the 60's in my heart
Legalising’s just the start
Grow your own and grow your hair
I've got the 60's in my life
Swapped my needles, swapped my wife
Now they're telling me not to share
But it's not fair

I love myself, I love myself, I love myself, I love myself
I love myself, I love myself, I love myself, I love myself
I love myself, I love myself, I love myself, I love myself
I love myself, I love myself, I love myself, I love myself
I love myself, I love myself, I love myself, I love myself
I love myself, I love myself
Track Name: They Might Say
THEY MIGHT SAY

They might say that dreams have brought you down
But I know it’s not true
They might think that you’re too old for love
But I know it’s not true
I have looked up in the sky
And I know that there’s a star that shines on you and I

You say that all your dreams have turned to nothing
Who’s to say you’re wrong
You might say your dreams have ended in nothing
But I say they’re still strong
You’ve got a mountain to climb
But I know you’re gonna make it with love in mind and me

There’s a bad thing in life
It’s called despair
A bad thing in life
Don’t lead you anywhere
Beware of yourself
Beware of yourself
Don’t let it fool you
Don’t you let it drag you down

You might think that I’m too unconcerned
When you see what I’ve achieved
They might say we’re young and we’re unlearned
What do they perceive
You see we’ve got a love of our own
We’ve got dreams of more than a home
They can take us to the furthest reaches
And set us free
You and me
We can be set free
You and me
You and me
You and me
You and me
You and me
