Track Name: Always Tuesday
ALWAYS TUESDAY

You asked me, do I still care
You asked me, will I be there
You asked me, to stand by you
You asked me, is my love true

I’ll hold you, until a new day
I’ll sit with you, through winter rain
I’ll cry with you, through the pain
I’ll fight for you, in every way

But you take my breath away; you still take my breath away
But you take my breath away; you still take my breath away

You’re the sun that falls on leaves
You’re the water that fills a stream
You’re the wind that carries dreams
You’re the reason I still breath

But you take my breath away; you still take my breath away
But you take my breath away; you still take my breath away
Track Name: Angel By The Lake
ANGEL BY THE LAKE

You appeared on the other side
With movements calm and slow
Upon the sand you laid your body down

Your naked body with no shame


Angel on the shore, what have you come here for?
Angle by the lake, in your hands is our fait

You came to us upon the water
Between the shadows and trees
Calling us with your command
Like a whisper on the breeze


Angel on the shore, what have you come here for?
Angle by the lake, in your hands is our fait
Angel on the shore, what have you come for?
Track Name: The Rainmaker
THE RAINMAKER

There was a time in my younger years
When my mind was hers
When I should have had more fear
For such a women as her
Oh the rain...Oh the rain
Oh the rain...Oh the rain

I tried to whisper in her ear
The heavy rain strikes down
Her heart shows no fear
Her skin is pale and cold
Oh the rain...Oh the rain
Oh the rain...Oh the rain

She is the rain, she is the rain

But now the wind and chimney roar
With the drone of dead wood
The rising water upon the floor
I’d leave if I could
Oh the rain...Oh the rain
Oh the rain...Oh the rain

She is the rain, she is the rain
She is the rain, She is the rain, she is the rain
Track Name: The Lost Son
THE LOST SON

Oh my son hear what I say
Don’t throw your life away
Don’t waste time feeling sad
About the love you ain’t had

With the grace of God, try to make a change
Things don’t have to be the same
And time will judge all the things I’ve done
All those things I should’ve done

And all the towns that you pass through
The people look down on you
Some will stand in your way
While others turn away

Don’t hide in the shadows or run in the night
Don’t cheat or lie
A life behind bars is never a home
Nor is a life alone

And as you lay in the ground
Shame will fill this town
And as the rain falls from above
I’ll take you home my son

And all the towns that you pass through
The people look down on you
Some will stand in your way
While others turn away
Track Name: Full of The Devil
FULL OF THE DEVIL

I went out looking for a sad eyed girl
I don’t wanna be lonely no more
I ain’t for love, money or desire
A little look my way is all I require

I’m full of the Devil and fire

Come now girl, run away with me
There’s long list of hearts behind me
Pay no mind, to where I’ve been
Look into my eyes; know what I’ve seen

I’m full of the Devil and sin

I’ll drink you up and spin you around
I’ll step aside, let you hit the ground
I’ll make you laugh; I’ll be your clown
There’s one of you in every town

I’m full of the Devil now
Track Name: She Had To Go (Come Home Version)
SHE HAD TO GO (COME HOME VERSION)

Dressed in blue she walks past you
With deep dark eye’s that look straight through
And a smile that cuts the air
And a flower behind her ear

With her you walk into an empty night
Hoping not to fade in her bright light
And praying that she wont leave you there
To walk away with out a care

Cause’ everyone girl wants to be you
And everyone boy tries’ to please you
And everyone thinks they know you
While I sit and wait on you, to come home,
To come home, to come home, to come home

She’s once and always on your mind
Her way and words are so refined
For her and all she is, you will always care
But she had to go with it pain to bear

Cause’ everyone girl wants to be you
And everyone boy tries’ to please you
And everyone thinks they know you
While I sit and wait on you, to come home
To come home, to come home, to come home
Track Name: The Professional
THE PROFESSIONAL

He’s heading out tonight to see what he’ll find
He’s hanging in bars until closing time
He’s watching young girls dance with tired eyes
Over whiskey shouts and telling lies

He’s either flying or falling down
He’s either flying or falling down

He’ll argue across the table as coloured balls fall
A steady stream of cigarettes and pills for all
Should have kept his mouth shut to avoid that bar room fight
Now he’s in the toilets stretching out another night

He’s either flying or falling down
He’s either flying or falling down

He’s a good time boy who’s got the lot
A friend to you if it feels all right
A friend to others to get in tight
He knows to change like choosing a tie

He’s either flying or falling down, he’s either flying or falling down
He’s either flying or falling down, he’s either flying or falling down
Track Name: Sertraline Dream
SERTRALINE DREAM

I’d often walk the streets alone
With a heavy heart and aching bones
Distraction in beauty I couldn’t find
Such was the darkness in my mind

I washed and bathed in misery
As the sickness took over me
I wanted for nothn’ I couldn’t see a change
Such was the guilt and the shame

No matter what I say or do
Nothing can heal me like you
Life is free oh like a dream
Well, thank you for saving me

I knew what I wanted, took what I need
Whatever it is was to be free
I lived each day in harms way
Such was my need for better days

I didn’t want for no redemption
No forty days or forty nights
My good will and faith was badly worn
Such is the darkness before the dawn

No matter what I say or do
Nothing can heal me like you
Life is free oh like a dream
Well, thank you for saving me
