Track Name: World Like That
god bless all the little liars
starting their fires
in the sky

and got bless all the little criminals
singing their hymnals
about what is right

and what if all the books were to burn
what would we learn
from the ashes

and what if all the roses were dead
would that be the end
to all the romantics

and you said
that you can’t
live in a world like that

and you said
that you can’t
live in a world like that
Track Name: Spider
If you saw me out
On the street
Would you think me a fool
Could you see through my painted face
That I’m feeling blue

‘cause lately I’ve been wonderin’
mostly about you
I can’t keep on searchin’
For what I’m going to do

Are you in or are you out
Don’t leave me hanging
Like some kind of spider
Close your eyes
And shut your mouth
I don’t want to know
If you're sittin’ beside her

‘cause lately I’ve been wonderin’
mostly about you
I can’t keep on searchin’
For what I’m going to do

When there is no specification
I can’t keep waiting
On you

And meanwhile
My imagination
Just keeps on walking
All over the truth

Are you in or are you out
Don’t leave me hanging
Like some kind of spider
Close your eyes
And shut your mouth
I don’t want to know
If you're sittin’ beside her

When there is no specification
I can’t keep waiting
On you

||: Don’t stop
It takes a long time
To get right
To get right :||
Track Name: Smoke Rings
Blowing smoke rings
out by the train tacks
Gotta get back before supper time
Sun is on our neck
And the devil is on our heels
But we don’t seem to mind

Summer days and our crazy ways
Everything is a scheme
Just to pass the time
If you’re not getting
Lucky in Kentucky
Youre no friend of mine

Mamas holding cigarettes
with their babies on their laps
And daddies are at the bar
Nuns kicking of their shoes
Dancing to the grassy blues
of dark men with guitars

the good lord must have been turned around
every time the sinners of this town
poured a cup of whiskey or of wine
it was a summer of chokin’ smoke
mama was gone and daddy was broke
Billy Joel done stole this heart of mine

In the summer time

But on Sunday we were in our pews
in our hats and our shiny shoes
crossing our fingers singing hymns of heaven on high
and the preacher sang about forgiveness
and how the good lord is always with us
he sees every sin you try to hide

the good lord must have been turned around
every time the sinners of this town
poured a cup of whiskey or of wine
it was a summer of chokin’ smoke
mama was gone and daddy was broke
Billy Joel done stole this heart of mine

In the summer time
Track Name: Dangerous
She comes into the picture
Just to spin her web
Around your head
Around your head

She mystifies with big green eyes
You’d think you’ve died
And gone to heaven
And gone to heaven

Don’t let her lose you
In the laundry of her life
You think she is happy
But she is just playing nice

And now there she goes
And she knows
Just enough to be dangerous
Dangerous

And she can
Turn the charm
Up real fast
She'll take your arm
And twist it round your back
She is a one-woman heart attack

Your big mistake
Was when you gave a key
So she could sleep
When you are not there
When you are not there

And like a fool
You buy her jewels and all these fancy shoes
She'll never wear
She'll never wear

||: You write her letters
Using dictionary words
And all the while
She has got your gold card in her purse

(2x second time)
And now there she goes
And she knows
Just enough to be dangerous
Dangerous :||
Track Name: Bright Lights
bright lights
they don’t blind me
fast cars
don’t excite me

if you shoot me down
my heart will still beat and
I’ll get up on my own two feet
And I’ll walk right out of this town
Track Name: Funny Man
Don’t make me beg
Don’t make me beg for your kiss
Don’t make me wait for your lips
To brush against mine
To brush mine against mine again

You make me laugh
You make me laugh when its not a joke
The situation's serious
And here I’m laughin’
And here I’m laughin’ with you

Oh but by the end of the day
I want so bad
to come home to my funny man
Oh but by the end of the day
I want so bad
to come home to my funny man

You walk with me
You walk with me but then you trip
You make it like you meant to slip
And now I’m cracking
Cracking up at you

Oh but by the end of the day
I want so bad
to come home to my funny man
Oh but by the end of the day
I want so bad
to come home to my funny man

And you can keep your money
And you can keep your pride
It’s the man that is funny
That I want by my side

And you can keep your money
And you can keep your pride
It’s the man that is funny
That I want by my side

Don’t make me beg
Don’t make me bed for your kiss
Don’t make me wait for your lips
To brush against mine
To brush mine against mine again

Oh but by the end of the day
I want so bad
to come home to my funny man
Oh but by the end of the day
I want so bad
to come home to my funny man
Track Name: Slow Down
slow down
don’t you know your gonna
break ground
don’t you know you’ve gotta
slow down
don’t you know your gonna
break the ground
don’t you know you’re gonna
hurt yourself

you’re gonna hurt somebody
you’re gonna hurt yourself
you’re gonna hurt somebody
Track Name: Like They Were Before
you said
that there was nothing to do
you said
that you had nothing to prove

you talk
of the desert and blue skies
so how the hell
am I supposed to know what is on your mind

when you don’t tell me anything anymore
baby I know things aren’t like they were before

you walk
in your bathrobe round the house all day
and every night
we're laying side by side and you’re wide awake

and I don’t know
just what to say or what to do
all I know
is that I want to kick the humdrum out of you

you don’t tell me anything anymore
say that everything we do is a bore
baby I know that one thing's for sure
things aren’t like the way they weren’t before
Track Name: I Am Right Here
how many nights
must you search for yourself
til you find
that yourself is now somebody else

and how many days
must you waste in the sun
waiting for that special someone

when I am right here
standing clear in your view
oh if you only knew
exactly how I felt about you

then maybe you’d see
finally
that I’m the piece that is missing
I’m the piece that is missing

People waste their time
Trying to find what is right
When sometimes what is right
Is right in front of you

And when I look at you
I see something similar to
What I see when I look in the mirror

when I am right here
standing clear in your view
oh if you only knew
exactly how I felt about you

then maybe you’d see
finally
that I’m the piece that is missing
I’m the piece that is missing
Track Name: Like Flying
what if I was
out of control
what if I let
let myself go

what if I change
all in my ways
and what if it led
to better days

would it be like flying
would it be like home
would it be like wanting
things I don’t know
would it be like needing
things I don’t have
would that be so wrong
if it weren’t so bad
Track Name: The Gambler
he lives life
by the dice
he feels right
with cards in his hand

and every day
fades away
he is a stray
who travels the land

he is a high roller
with a chip on his shoulder
his only prayer
is not to lose

he is a high roller
every day he is getting older
but he wouldn’t do it over
if he could choose

he thinks game
takes away
all the pain
there has every been

with every roll
he doesn’t know
he loses soul
and falls again

he is a high roller
with a chip on his shoulder
his only prayer
is not to lose

he is a high roller
every day he is getting older
but he wouldn’t do it over
if he could choose
Track Name: Nick of Time
you can pull yourself together
if you’d only try
you can control stormy weather
in the dead of night

if you change your mind
you can change your life
you can turn in all around
in the nick of time
Track Name: She Don't Know You
and I’m watching you
fall into her
and I’m watching you
fall into her
and I’m watching you
fall into her

and there is nothing I can do
there is nothing I can do
there is nothing I can do
there is nothing I can do

‘cause she don’t know you
she don’t know you
she don’t know you like I do

‘cause she don’t know you
she don’t know you
she don’t know you like I do

first she'll bait you
then she'll take you
any sick way that she wants to

‘cause she don’t know you
she don’t know you like I do

she wont miss you
she wont kiss you
she wont wish that she were with you

‘cause she don’t know you
she don’t know you like I do

‘cause she don’t know you
she don’t know you
she don’t know you like I do

‘cause she don’t know you
she don’t know you
she don’t know you like I do
Track Name: Let Me Down Easy
would you let me down easy
if you are gonna disappoint me
would you do it sweetly
would you let me down gently

instead of turning around
and hurting me
Track Name: Miss Those Lips
would you give me another chance
if I asked for one more
would you let me have another try
if I screamed and cried
and threw myself upon the floor

and would you listen to my side
would you let me speak my mind
for a moment

and would you lest me just explain
how far I came
how far I came
since the last time that I saw you

(chorus)
I miss those lips
And I want them back
And oh that kiss
I want it back to
Now lay me down
On a bed again
This time
I’m giving all myself to you

I was young
I was having fun
Oh when you came my way
I’m never good at being serious
How I should have known
Oh that I would run away

But know I am paying for the time
I am paying for what was lost in the fire
And all that I cans say is that I’m sorry
And tell you next time I’ll try harder

(chorus)

And I know that it might be
A little too late
But darlin’
I’m asking, no begging
You to wait

All I need is one more try
Another try to make things right
Just give me this and I promise
To never let you down

(chorus)
Track Name: Like A Baby
and just like a baby
you were crawling
on your hands and knees
please somebody save me
was what you were hollerin’

what was I supposed to do
it is no like I couldn’t hear you
what was I supposed to say
when you look at me that way
Track Name: Gypsy Heart
my gypsy heart’s been acting up
and I don’t think there is a cure
its been this way for several days
and one thing I know is for sure

that the gyspy heart
is the kind of heart
you don’t want to fall for
‘cause if you do
god bless your sould
‘cause it will keep you wanting more
Track Name: Must I Always
if you feel
something strong
comin’ on
why don’t you just go to bed

and if you see
something strange
come your way
why don’t you cover your head

or must I always
be saving you
from yourself
must I always
be playing
someone else

you know that its wrong
to lean on someone
the way you lean on me
I want you to know
That I wont always be there
To be what you need

If you know
That you’ll be
Feelin’ blue
Would you just not just pick up the phone

And if you know
That you can’t sleep
Would you please
Deal with it on your own

or must I always
be saving you
from yourself
must I always
be playing
someone else

you know that its wrong
to lean on someone
the way you lean on me
I want you to know
That I wont always be there
To be what you need
