Goodbye Miracles

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye

Sittin’ in a cornfield, Tennessee
I can see you, sure as hell you see me
There’s a lack of good feedin’, there’s a sack of good reason
In the back of my neck, there’s a pain ain’t relievein’

Need some sign, some guarantee
If the sun’s gonna shine, let it shine on me
Tell me what have I done to you?
What have I gone through?
What am I to do without your love?

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye

If only my friends could see me now
Pissin’ in the wind ‘til the midnight hour
If I had some pride, I’d be whippin’ my hide
Then deliver you the body with a note that rhymes

One of these days you’ll be crawlin’ back
One of these days when the sky turns black
When a pig flies by in a pink tie-dye for you
What am I to do without your love?

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye……no

Gimme a sign, gimme one of your lines
‘bout stickin’ your head in the oven tonight by five
One in the eye, what a pleasant surprise
I can almost feel the turning of the knife inside
So clinical, goodbye my miracle, goodbye

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye

Sittin’ in a cornfield, Tennessee
I can see you, sure as hell you see me
There’s a lack of good feedin’, there’s a sack of good reason
In the back of my neck, there’s a pain ain’t relievein’
Need some sign, some guarantee
If the sun’s gonna shine, let it shine on me
Tell me what have I done to you?
What have I gone through?
What am I to do?
If only my friends could see me now
Pissin’ in the wind ‘til the midnight hour
If I had some pride, I’d be whippin’ my hide
Then deliver you the body with a note that says goodbye
I said goodbye, oh goodbye, just goodbye, I said goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I said goodbye, let me tell you

One of these days you’ll be crawlin’ back
One of these days when the sky turns black
When a pig flies by in a pink tie-dye for you
What am I to do without your love, without your love?
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I said goodbye, I said goodbye, I said goodbye, I said goodbye,
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!

Nobody Home

Hell’s Bells again, message from the heavens
Let it slide, just let it slide
Won’t take the blame
Say, leave your name and number, thanks, bye
The call comes thru, the call comes thru
Then the call comes thru an’ we don’t know what to do

Strangers from the sky drop by
You can see it in their eyes
They’ve got nothin’ much better to do
Better than you
Take to your beds
Try an’ take to covering up your heads
Quit spoiling the view
Then the call comes thru
An’ they don’t know what to do

They call and they call
There’s no-one listening, nobody
They call, they call, they call and they call
There’s no-one answering, nobody
Nobody home

Home, home on the Range
Never seen a better way of stuffin’ that stuff
Right up out of view, out of the blue
It’s only painful when you laugh, don’t laugh
When you’re dealin’ with psychopaths
Only thing you can do
Then the call comes thru, an’ we don’t know what to do

They call, an’ they call
There’s no-one listening, nobody
They call, they call, they call, they call
There’s no-one answering, nobody
Nobody home

In the alligator rain, ten seconds on the clock
When your feet have caught fire tellin’ Hell`n yellin’
“Make it stop, just make it stop!”
There’s a toll-free you can dial, got everything on file
It’s a mediator, radiator, second-class taper to talk
Then the call comes thru, an’ we don’t know what to do

They call an’ they call
There’s no-one listening, nobody
They call, they call, they call and they call
There’s no-one answering, nobody
Nobody home

Resolve, dissolve, re-call, they fall
There’s no-one listening, nobody home

They try, they lie, they cry, they die
There’s no-one answering, nobody home

Nobody home.
Hammer Comes Down

I’m looking from the window
I hear the radio playin’ my kinda town
Don’t want to be a loser
Gonna lose myself in my kinda town
You’re sellin’ me a reason
You’re tellin’ me it’s pleasin’ you
I know you’re lying

Whatcha gonna do when the hurricane hits you?
Oh yeah when the hammer comes down
Whatcha gonna do when the dealer outwits you?
Oh yeah when the hammer comes down

I’m waitin’ for the thunder
Is it any wonder that I’m cryin’ inside?
Don’t wanna go crazy
It’s never easy when you’re dyin’ inside
It’s gettin’ kinda late for you
I’m never gonna wait for you
In silent promise
Take My Hand

Silver bracelet, satin gown
Smile for me baby
Make me feel alright
Endless highway, dead of night
Don’t look in the mirror
Everything will be alright

Come on and take my hand
I’ll take you where nothin’s planned
No need to run, it’s over and done
If you take my hand

Empty faces, silent town
Dance for me baby
Make me feel alright
Don’t you cry out in the darkness
Don’t pray in the morning
We can pray for the light

All I needed was your love
All I wanted was a little company
We all need just a little lovin’ care
And comfort to get us through the night
Friend

Followin’ you around ‘cos every creep in town they wanna hold you near
Forgive my despair I’m not spoken for anywhere
I get all messed up baby everybody needs a friend

I keep a stainless mind it works every time I get so much done.
In some uncertain way you look so temperate like you would give in, some
I get all messed up baby everybody needs a friend
Aw c’mon lets dance baby everybody needs a friend.

I know what you want and everything you crave, do you understand?
Supposing you could speak would you speak to me, nothing planned?
Don’t waste my time baby everybody needs,
C’mon lets dance baby everybody needs a friend.
A friend.

Nobody Calls Me That

Call me superstitious but am I outa luck?
I can tell I’m out of favour, more than enough
Please wont you tell I’m devoid of a clue
How come I’m getting you heated?
Is it something I do?

Don’t wanna say nothin’ that you don’t wanna hear
But there’s a little demon whisprin’ in my left ear
He say, “It don’t appear likely you’re required tonight
Why don’t you take your butt elsewhere, business is tight”
I can take so much of your Autocrat-chat
But you’ve blown it big time mister
Nobody calls me that

You could’ve called me a lily-assed one-eyed clown
Could’ve called me Marie, I’d-a-never turned around
Could’ve said my mother likes to take it in back
But you’ve blown it big time mister
Nobody calls me that

Don’t often stick around when trouble begins
But your mouth’s so big I gotta fill it in
Ah you were too dumb, way too dumb to quit
So don’t patronise, ‘cos it don’t mean shit
Gonna leave here wearin’ your baseball bat
3 times a lady, boy, nobody…………calls me that!

Do It!

In a Tax-free zone, down a tin-can alley
There’s a slipper girl-thing and a man named Sally
They were talk-talk-talkin’ ‘bout a final little coffin nail
Seems, down at the Docks, the intended lies a-waitin’
And the privileged information’s gonna get wet too.
Y’can’t be too careful when it comes to being careful

Do it, do it, just do it!

There’s a man in my street keeps a flock of grey doves
An’ he’s set in his ways, wearin’ Everlast gloves
His opinion can be beat when push becomes a shove
Says he doesn’t give a monkey ‘bout youth of the day
They should all drop dead, should be taken away
Put somewhere cold and all be made to stay

Do it, do it, just do it, just do it!

There, there, there my sweet
You can sip it thru a straw; you can throw it back neat
Just don’t be hesitatin’ waitin’ for it
Cos in the ideal world I’d be coming for you
Could be tokin’ on the bale, could be sniffin’ that glue
Better stake your fakin’ reputation on it

Do it, do it, just do it!

Do it, do it, just do it!
Colour My Love

Darkness fell on me with a vengeance tonight
Now my darkness has a name
I can’t make you stay, I don’t have the right
Least of all when I’m to blame

There was a time when we could’ve reached for the skies
Dreams all painted up in blue
So what’s the reasoning behind those blue eyes?
What is left for us to do when all our dreams spin out of view?

Nothing in my eyes my love
Just a pain inside my love
Is it night or day, all I see is grey?
Colour my love

It’s hard to sleep away the images I see
When all my visions are of you
I feign indifference from thoughts that shouldn’t be
Tell myself I’ll make it through
When all I really need is you

I’ve been thinking ‘bout a time when all the world was fine
And the colour of love was yours and mine
Every bright new day was goin’ our way
And the nights were warm and long
Ain’t it funny how the change came on so fast?
And the dreams all faded
That our love would last I believed an’ I still believe
Our love goes on and on and on
Walk Out

I heard about your felony
It’s been comin’ for a long time
You say you wanna set me free
But I never get to know why
You’ve been actin’ in a curious way
You leave me nothin’ but the bills to pay

Walk out, just when I need ya,
Walk out, take a walk
Walk out, just when it pleases ya
Walk out, just take a walk

You closed so many doors in my face
But I try to keep a level head
Now someone else is takin’ my place
I’m a thorn in your flower bed
It’s never easy to say goodbye
You hang around just to see me cry

Walk out, just when I need ya,
Walk out, take a walk
Walk out, just when it pleases ya
Walk out, just take a walk

You always could rely on me
To be there when you were falling down
Now you bring me to my knees
I ain’t beggin’ you to stay around

Walk out, just when I need ya,
Walk out, take a walk
Walk out, just when it pleases ya
Walk out, just take a walk
Money & Girls

Shake!

I love getting all in a mess; I love a stranger’s distress
I like your verbal attack; I love answering back

There’s a slow train comin’ and it’s bringin’ no thrills
Just treason with a reason called money and girls
Please, Mr Postman, my heart’s in a whirl
There’s gotta be somethin’ in the sack ’bout money and girls

I love the smell of Gasoline Stations
An’ the way the League of Nations always screwed up
I love playin’ ovens in Dutch, I love doin’ nothin’ much

From the Folky in the gutter to the dyke from Hollywood Hills
They’re singin’ “Here’s another ditty ’bout money and girls.”
There’s a solitary guru sittin’ in a tower of molten guilt
Cryin’ “I’ve sinned Father, sinned ‘bout money and girls.”
Please, Mr Postman, my heart’s in a whirl, there’s gotta be
Somethin’ in the sack, somethin’ in the sack
Of money and girls

Shake!

I love makin’ fun of my nose; I love how your garden grows
Get off drivin’ real fast cars’ get a buzz eatin’ Willie Wonka candy bars

There’s a slow train comin’ an’ it’s bringin’ no thrills
There’s a friend worth believin’, It’s money and girls
Please, please, pretty please, pretty damn please
It’ll freeze an’ you won’t notice, focus, money and girls
There’s a snake in the grass and it’s closin’ on you fast but
Money and girls only thing that’s gonna last
Money and girls it’s future in the past
Better cover your ass, cover your ass
Hey you Mr Postman, my heart’s in a whirl
There’s gotta be somethin’ in the sack about money and girls
There’s a solitary guru sittin’ in a Tower of molten guilt
Cryin’ “I’ve sinned Father, sinned Father, sinned Father
Sinned Father over and over and over
Money and girls

Shake!  Shake!  Shake!

Money and girls
Don’t Keep Me Waitin’

Just gone midnight, another lonely night ahead
I could use a little love cos I’m slowly goin’ out of my head
I really wanna call you but I can do without the pain
Why’d you have to lead me on and then leave me cold again?

Don’t keep me waitin’
I’m so alone without your love
Don’t keep me waitin’
I’ve been the loser long enough

I don’t understand you I give you everything you want
There’s gotta be another way I cant rely on your lovin’ at all
Do you really want me or am I wasting all my time?
You really gotta let me know tell me baby will you ever be mine?

Don’t keep me waitin’
I’m so alone without your love
Don’t keep me waitin’
I’ve been the loser long enough

You’re so sure you can keep me underground
But one day you’ll call an’ I wont be around

Don’t keep me waitin’
I’m so alone without your love
Don’t keep me waitin’
I’ve been a loser long enough

Don’t keep me waitin’
One In A Million

As the winds of love are blowing
Where they’ll lead you, no one knows
Till the misty mornin’ finds you all alone

When I feel I’m always losin’
When it seems so hard to hold
Then I realise you’re all I need to know

One in a million dreams come true
Some never see it through
But, one in a million came to be with you

In the ever-changing story
Tender moments shining through
Hear the echoes of the pages here with you

Leaving all my cares behind me
Not afraid to run the race
All the strength I need is always in your face

When the sky is burnin’ there’s you
When the world stops turnin’ there’s you
Get Inside Of You

Get inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Spread the shame of your righteous morality
Lay the blame firmly right at your door
Only from you can I get to the start of it
Only for you can I get to the heart of it all

So I’m getttin’ inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

I’m amazed just how long you can go without
All the craziness locked in your eyes
Only a fool could be foolish enough for you
Only a fool would be willing and able to try

So I’m getttin’ inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Take a walk with me down through your innocent life
You can talk to me; it’s not a crime
Only a view from your eyes is enough for me
Only a fool would be willing and able to try

So I’m getttin’ inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Get inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you
