Track Name: The Start Of It
THE START OF IT

You know when she walks through that door
That’s the start of it
Whispering “how do you do?”
That’s the start of it

You know where it’s going friend
You better watch your back and send
For some help before it gets too late
And that’s the start of it

You know when you’re drinking alone
That’s the start of it
A Looney Tune he stares you down
That’s the start of it

You know where it’s going friend
Better watch your back and send
For some help before it gets too late
And that’s the start of it

You believe that faith alone
Will make you a stronger man
You must be Jesus Christ returned
‘Cause only he could take that stand

You know where it’s going friend
Better watch your back and send
For some help before it gets too late
And that’s the start of it

Hell might freeze over tonight
Yea, pigs might take up flight
All you know is it’s not right
A woman looking for a light
A moron looking for a fight
She could steal your soul
And he could take your sight

You know where it’s going friend
Better watch your back and send
For some help before it gets too late
And that’s the start of it

That’s the start of it!

You better watch your back…
Track Name: Godforsaken
I been all over this old world
Searching for the brown eyed girl
I met her once I let her go
Her black hair still haunts me so

I see it when I close my eyes
Why am I not surprised?
I could kill myself sometimes
No-one’d miss me if I died…

I’m all alone
I’m godforsaken
I’m out here

Looking to find my way back home
From out here

I’m all alone
I’m godforsaken
I’m out here
Track Name: Lady Love & The Cavalier
LADY LOVE & THE CAVALIER

Such a hard life to walk alone
Has to kick her habit too
Johnny don’t like how she feels
He beat her black and blue
Drive a coal black limousine
A mausoleum to her heart
Lady don’t take what she gets
He make sure she fell apart

From where I stood
I watched her falling down and down
Too tired or wasted to make it
To the other side of town
Far from Lonely Street
The other side of town

In the streets that lead downtown
You bare your back to the nightlife still
If you can’t escape the stranglehold
You’re gonna get your fill
Lady Love she brought this place
To bed with her every night
Now she sleeps alone in peace
Under roses in cold moonlight

From where I stand
I see her falling down and down
Too tired or wasted to make it
To the other side of town
Far from Lonely Street
The other side of town

I’m the only one paid with a smile
She called me her Cavalier
But I came way too late
To take her away from here
Lady Love she brought this place
To bed for the last time tonight
Looks like a prayer she had for peace
Had her in its sights

From where I stood
I watched them put her in the ground
Wish there was something I’d done
From the other side of town
Far from Lonely Street
The other side of town
Track Name: Different Sky
Hey Good Looking years from now
You’ll sit at home, remember how
We were the talk of our hometown
Dressed to kill, hanging around

That’s another time another life
We’re getting by
We should enjoy our separate lives
And not cry for lost goodbyes

Cos we’re doing fine now
Not just getting by now
Living under a different sky
Different sky

Looking back, I can see the signs
I never should have spoke my mind
I opened wide and I lost again
Love’s a game that I can’t win

That’s another time another life
We’re getting by
We should enjoy our separate lives
And not cry for lost goodbyes

Cos we’re doing fine now
We’re not just getting by now
Living under a different sky
Different sky

You once told me
We get no second chance
I hate to have to prove you wrong
I’m gonna find someone
Make her dance, I’ll sing a song
And I’ll chance romance

Cos we’re doing fine now
We’re not just getting by now
Living under a different sky
Different sky
