Track Name: All Night Long
Verse 1
All night long, I’ll dance with you: x2
and if I can’t dance all night I sing the blues

Verse 2
Take my hand, come dance with me: x2
We’ll do the twist, shake your hips and bend your knees

Verse 3
All night long, I’ll dance with you: x2
and if I can’t dance all night I sing the blues
Track Name: Backwards in High Heels
Verse 1
Well how’d you walk around in those high heels baby?
It sure looks hard to sustain
And how’d you keep a friendship with two faced ladies?
It looks so hard to maintain

Verse 2
Do you think they talk about you when you’ve left the room?
I wonder what do they say?
But your Mamma always said things are better left unsaid
It’s always been the same

Chorus
Don’t think about it girl just be yourself
You know that’s all you can do
I’ll tell you the words a wise man once said
All you can be is you........all you can be is you

Verse 3
Do you have to paint your face on when you go out to war?
couldn’t you just go unarmed?
do you really think you need it to get yourself a boy?
couldn’t you just use your charms?

Chorus

Verse 4
Well how’d you walk around in those high heels baby?
It don’t look good for your health
Do you do it for the boys or to compete with the ladies?
or is it just for yourself

Chorus
Track Name: Possessions
Verse 1
Well you’ve got all the things you wanted to have since you were small
But now you realise they don’t mean nothing at all

Verse 2
Well you took without a care for anything, or anyone but you
But the time has come to look within yourself and seek the truth

Bridge
Don’t you know the things you own
End up owning you

Verse 3
Your head’s in pieces you don’t know whether
Your coming or going and when this will end
You’ll never find peace if you just want more
The shadow of greed is cast on your soul x2
Track Name: When We're All Alone
Verse 1
Well my mind it feels so empty
When I ain’t there with you
Read a book from start to finish
In the time it takes to sing these blues

Chorus
Cos I know you’ll be waiting
In anticipation of how I feel way down in the corner of my soul
As the world keeps turning
We’ll never stop learning and review when my baby and I get time alone, all alone

Verse 2
Take a walk right by the river
on a beautiful summers day
and it doesn’t feel like nothing
will ever get in our way

Chorus

Verse 3
We drift into a slumber
With the sunlight on our face
And my Highland Queen beside me
Come feel my warm embrace

Chorus
Track Name: Devil Woman
Verse 1
A devil woman with a stone cold soul,
swiped my cash and left me bald and broke ohhhhh lord, she left me all alone
I had to fight the urge not to give the devil woman a call

Verse 2
she packed her bags on the Saturday morn,
come afternoon you know my baby was gone ohhhhh lord, you know my baby was gone
and now my mind is rambling and I’m so sad and forlorn.

Verse 3
my baby put me in the state I’m in,
singing the blues and drinking whiskey and gin all night long, I’m drinking Hendricks gin
you know the devil woman put me in the state I’m in
Track Name: Mr Business Man
Verse 1
Go ahead Mr Business Man, you still got 20 years left on your stretch: x2
Well that’s 240 long hard months and you still got 239 of em left

Verse 2
Head down Mr Business Man, is the only way to survive this time: x2
Ask no questions keep your opinions to yourself and don’t step out of line

Verse 3
Tell me Mr Business Man, how someone like you can sleep at night: x2
Eyes so heavy with a belly full of sin and pockets full of lies
Track Name: Early 20s
Verse 1
Well you've got what I want
A loose set of morels and a bottle of wine
Cloaked in sass and looking mighty fine
You laddered your tights babe but that’s alright
That’s alright, that’s alright with me

Verse 2
Well you've got what I need
A mountain of curls an alluring smile
Legs that go on for miles and miles
Meet me in the ally I’ll be back in a while
Back in a while, back in a while you’ll see

Verse 3
Well you've got what I want
A loose set of morels she just wants to get high
Cloaked in sass and looking mighty fine
You laddered your tights babe but that’s alright
That’s alright, that’s alright with me
Track Name: Darkest Day
Verse 1
Come sit by me my friend, I think I’ve got something to say
I miss you when you’re away, I’m sorry to see you today

Verse 2
This is our darkest day, some things shouldn't be this way
Somethings that life takes away, they just can’t be replaced

Verse 3
The woman I love is away, I could not make her stay
Just cos I’m always away, sometime you can’t get your way

Verse 2
I guess what I’m trying to say, is everyone in my life
Really means something to me, you’ve got to know before I leave

Verse 3
This is our darkest day, some things remain the same
I’ll be here waiting for you, I got nothing better to do
Track Name: She's Calling Me
Verse 1
Well I’m down again my friend
Right back on those streets again
Where the stones shine for a quarter mile
Looking back I see my baby smile

Chorus
Cos she’s calling me
Right back to where I used to be
And she’s calling me
And I’m hanging on by the skin of my teeth
So take me away, set me free, worried blues, let me be

Verse 2
Well it rained for 40 days and 40 nights
Earth’s closest start was nowhere in sight
And the night was so black it would twist your mind
Every second passed was wasted time

Chorus

Verse 3
Well I’m down again my friend
Right back on those streets again
Where the stones shine for a quarter mile
Looking back I see my baby smile

Chorus
Track Name: Maybe Baby
Verse 1
A taste of heaven is a stone’s throw away
Then you call saying things ain’t OK
A girl like you is slowly twisting my mind
I kind of feel you’re wasting my time

Verse 2
You’re up and down like a ship on a sea
Can’t you see what it’s doing to me
All I ask is that you’re more down the line
I kind of feel you’re wasting my time
Maybe baby that ain’t alright

Chorus
Maybe I don’t like your style
Maybe it’s been a while
Baby its plain to see
That a woman like you ain’t good for a man like me
Verse 3
You talk the talk but the eyes never lie
Don’t you know that I ain’t that guy
The way you’re acting should be a crime
I kind of feel you’re wasting my time
Maybe baby that ain’t alright
Chorus

And lonely is the road tonight x2

Verse 1
I Guess you Know, how the story goes
There’s no looking back, when all you can do is try

Verse 2
I see people doing, just what they want to do
and I think that’s right cos some of us don’t even try

try to look up, try not to give in

cos people are changing, maybe the world needs rearranging
but we've got time and I guess that’s all you need

I Guess you Know, how the story goes
There’s no looking back, when all you can do is try
