Can you help me, find my freedom I've been looking out everywhere I go When I find out, and I'll find out I'm gonna tell, everyone I know Everybody's asking, everybody's asking, But there's no answer Everybody's running, everybody's running Nowhere faster This world we live in, it's disgusting I see it, everywhere I go Coz you're nothing, oh you're nothing Without all that shit shine to show Everybody's asking, everybody's asking, But there's no answer Everybody's running, everybody's running Nowhere faster Oh I came to conclusion Everybody is living on everybody elses opinion Can you help me, help me find, help me find my freedom But don't tell me, show me Oh God, show me I'm not dreaming Everybody's asking, everybody's asking What's the answer When everybody's living, everybody's living under anger Everybody's talking, everybody's talking louder and louder Everybody's asking, everybody's asking But there's no answer Everybody's running, everybody's running Nowhere faster I guess I'm running, yes I'm running, Nowhere faster

I won’t change my lover for there’s a chance that I am right I’ve read between your covers and I’m hardly satisfied Coz none of this makes any decent common sense to me I was trying to be faithful, while you were patronizing me Coz I’m free I see, smoke up the river And I feel, something deeper So come gather all you sinners, come and validate your greed Just throw a little dollar to the ones in poverty And take it to confession boy you, get down on your knees And all will be forgiven, if you only make believe I see, smoke up the river And I feel, something deeper So lock your doors, and load your guns Coz that is how, you think this war should be won So come a little bit closer Come closer to the water Does it all seem unfamiliar Or is it as you, remember I see, smoke up the river And I feel, something deeper

I don’t know where you’re going I know where you’ve been I don’t need a reason, a meaning for the end I don’t loose anymore sleep Oh but even if I do I wont loose a moment, thinking about you So I’m not making amends And I’m not willing to bend I have nothing but love for you Should I, see you again I don’t know what you’re doing I know what you’ve done I don’t need a reason, for loving anyone So I’m not making amends And I’m not willing to bend I have nothing but love for you Should I, see you again I don’t know if I should be willing To cross the street to say hello But to think I should keep on walking Just like, just like I didn’t know So I’m not making amends And I’m not willing to bend I have nothing but love for you Should I, see you again

The Letter 04:00
I wrote you a letter, I just don’t know if you’re gonna get it Coz I don’t know where you are I tried to forget it, but I wanted you to find out Every word I said But you travelled across the land, just to make me understand Just how, just how, just how far How far you wanna be You wanna be from me So I walked along the pavement, just to hope that I could take it To anywhere you are I tried to remember if there’s anything I left you That would remind you where I stand But you travelled across the land, just to make me understand Just how, just how, just how far How far you wanna be You wanna be from me Well I got down on my knees and I wept for your love I got down on my knees and I prayed that you’d come Now I don’t think I can find you, unless this is all behind you Could you leave it where you are Oh just know that I open up my door, every morning Just in case you might walk by
5.
Just Because 04:08
Have you ever felt like, you could tell yourself it’s all in your head Convince your imagination it had powers of creation Coz every day I search for ways and better days to make the dreams A little less crazy I knew that I could never try to look both ways and never lie Maybe I would love you if I was blind, if I was blind It’s a shame, shame shame to think my life would have to change, yeah it’s a shame, shame, shame The only shame Guess I was thinking too hard to think my family would know no different, would know no different Yeah, Just because you read my body like we’re never apart And just because you read my words before I open my mouth Now I’m not sure if I want this No, no none of this means anything So you found my face in my hiding place, but you only counted to five Stayin longer tonight let you tell me it’s alright - It’s alright Who to call to let it out, first to call then word of mouth What the hell do I do now Find someone just anyone, guaranteed to turn and run Practise on the ones I don’t care about, yeah find anyone Yeah, Just because you read my body like we’re never apart And just because you read my words before I open my mouth Now I’m not sure if I want this No, no none of this means anything So I crossed the line to talk Yeah surprised me Yeah, oh surprise it’s easier to walk It’s e-e-easy to walk Just because you read my body like we’re never apart And just because you read my words before I open my mouth Now I’m not sure if I want this No, no none of this means anything None of this means anything

You’ve done something bad I’m gonna tell my Mum and Dad That you have gone and broken down my heart I’m gonna tell my best friends too and they’re gonna gang up on your Coz you have gone and broken down my heart Oh I’m, such a fool To go on and believe you You’re not worried, you’re not sorry at all That you’ve turned out just to break my heart I’m gonna hatch this devious plan I’m gonna catch your bright red hand Now you have gone and broken down my heart And when I get these hands on you I’m gonna put my curse on you Coz you have gone and broken down my heart Oh I’m, such a fool To go on and believe you You’re not worried, you’re not sorry at all That you’ve turned out just to break my heart Oh I cried, like a fool cries When her lover, is a lie You’re not worried, you’re not sorry at all That you’ve turned out just to break my heart So don’t think that we are through I’m not finished yet with you Coz you have gone and broken down my heart

You’ve got a hot temper, I can’t hardly breathe Though if I tried to tell ya, oh no you’d only spit on me You know I bust my bones, and I break my back Just to give you my sweet love, that I don’t get back Now you’ve got a new girl, and she’s your world And I can’t compete, with them lips so sweet With them lips so sweet, with them lips so sweet You know I met your Ma, boy she does like me And your hot sister, oh yes she can count on me When I made your breakfast, when I made your bed I near broke my shoulder, on your big fat head Now you’ve got a new girl, and she’s your world And I can’t compete, with them lips so sweet With them lips so sweet, with them lips so sweet Now I know you, you’re gonna crawl right back just like you always do oh my oh my Now you know I, I’m gonna take you back oh yes oh my oh my oh why oh why Just give me a chance, to mark my words I will kick her ass if only you’d catch me first Now you’ve got a new girl, and she’s your world And I can’t compete, with them lips so sweet with them lips so sweet, so sweet, so sweet, so sweet, so sweet so sweet them lips so sweet

I’ve never had such a good friend, when I’m with you I don’t pretend You make me laugh, and give me reason Speak the words that I believe in Love, it’s love, lovely to have found you Love, love, so much love that I will give you When I fell from so damn high, hung my head in my hands and cried In the darkness you had heard, I never asked you but there you were Love, it’s love, lovely to have found you Love, love, all my love that I will give you Spend my days, all my nights I’ll be there with all my might, with Love Love, love, all my love that I will give you It’s Lovely, it’s lovely, lovely to have found you

Trains keep on rollin’ thru our little town It all feels different, without you around I shook your hand, that shook the hands of pain Said it all makes you stronger, yeah that’s just the way So I’ll see ya, when I see ya It’s been mighty fine to have got to know ya We’ll sing our songs again, drink to long lost friends Oh, we’ll bring the house down When my train comes to town Oh we drank the finest Whisky All the stories we could tell Oh you never tired of listening Yeah you knew me so well Taught me about Jesus And let me make my own mind Said we all get redemption At the end of the line So I’ll see ya, when I see ya It’s been mighty fine to have got to know ya We’ll sing our songs again, drink to long lost friends Oh, we’ll bring the house down When my train comes to town When my train comes to town
10.
I’ve got big hands I wear blue jeans and in my pockets are great big things And in my heart I can just tell that you don’t know me very well I’m unsure in your acquaintance you and me we are but strangers Wear your hat from side to side or front to back hell I don’t mind I’ll pick you outta my pocket I’ll put you on the sidewalk But I’ll thank you very nicely As I walk away politely But I won’t wear your jacket home tonight No I won’t wear your jacket home tonight But you’ll think of every kind of line for every kind of peace of mind But I’ve held every conversation on every kind of medication I can drink down to the drop, Yes Mam I’ll be standing up You watch me fill up every vein with every drop of every rain I’ll pick you outta my pocket I’ll put you on the sidewalk But I’ll thank you very nicely As I walk away politely But I won’t wear your jacket home tonight No I won’t wear your jacket home tonight Don’t try to run, your fingers in my hair Go on, get going, go home now – get on outta here Don’t get me wrong I don’t believe that you’re not good enough for me Or that you have got in my way or I don’t have the time of day You just be good now and behave, try to curb your wicked ways As you walk on in the night, just you try to stay alive I’ll pick you outta my pocket I’ll put you on the sidewalk But I’ll thank you very nicely As I walk away politely But I won’t wear your jacket home tonight No I won’t wear your jacket home tonight
