Track Name: Cry Like Hell
That look in her eye
Went cold and dark long before the fight
Cry like hell
Words to your favorite tune
Sung under her breath as she leaves you
Cry like hell

Crash and burn, pain and sorrow
Cut lines, forget tomorrow
Let sleeping dogs lie, let it hurt like hell (there is no try)
Surrender yourself, your way
Screw the love that you never made
Reset the present out loud, cry like hell (like hell cry)

That bitch you never knew
She works the knife deeper to bleed you
Cry like hell
Memories maybe fade
Still the pain of it all stays
Cry like hell

Crash and burn, pain and sorrow
Cut lines, forget tomorrow
Let sleeping dogs lie, let it hurt like hell (there is no try)
Surrender yourself, your way
Screw the love that you never made
Reset the present out loud cry like hell (like hell cry)

That chance you almost had
Blown to pieces only makes you laugh
Like hell cry

Track Name: Fire From Your Spark
You keep saying true lust it's real
Give me something to hold or steal
Just like fine wine it's been a long time
Let me drink and at your altar I will kneel

Let me light your fire, let me light your fire
Light the fire from your spark
X2
You got one last thing to lose
Move with me in the dark
Let me light your

Fire can hurt, come on now fire can heal
Pretty young thing tell me what you wanna feel
Your cool, hard heart just needs one good kickstart
To light the fuel, turn the engine, spin the wheels

CHORUS

You got one last thing to lose
I got the touch you need to use
Move with me in the dark
Let me light your

Let me light your fire, let me light your fire
Let the light your fire from your spark
Will you light my fire, can you light my fire
Light my fire from your spark

CHORUS

You got one last thing to lose
I got the touch you need to use
Rock the cradle, burn the fuse
Move with me in the dark
Let me light your
Track Name: Darkest Star
Rodeo clown told me just what it takes
To face the beast when your courage breaks
Still gotta look him right in the eye
Bend him to your will then let him shoot straight on by

I don't know if it's near or far
My own road I will walk to the darkest star
And I don't care, a million miles away
To the darkest star I will make my way

Gypsy woman how do you feel
When your visions of destruction you see become real
Do you hideaway, shed tears out of sight
And then put on a brave face for the boardwalk crowds at night

I don't know if it's near or far
My own road I will walk to the darkest star
And I don't care, a million miles away
To the darkest star I will make my way

Gambler man tell me what do you bet
The prize is true understanding of the life you got left
Would you take a chance, risk beautiful things
For a shot at the mystery only the darkest star brings
The stargazer spoke as we looked up at night
The past it's a billion worlds overhead shining bright
Life it's out there, somewhere I'm sure
They deal with the same 'ol shit we deal with
Maybe even more

I don't know if it's near or far
My own road I will walk to the darkest star
And I don't care, a million miles away
To the darkest star I will make my way

I'm just a hitchhiker, what would you do
If you were cruisin' down the highway
Saw me waiting on you

I don't know if it's near or far
My own road I will walk to the darkest star
And I don't care, a million miles away
To the darkest star I will make my way
To the darkest star I will make my way
I will rock the darkest star

"Darkest Star" was sponsored by Wendy Critchley: 'What I liked about this song was that you can really hear your passion for the music come through. It's a great showcase of your voice and style.'
Track Name: You Slay Me
I use you, you’ve used me
Things we've done, we believe
I don't care what they say
You and I will not fade away
I got hope, you got dreams
Memory burn what we used to be
If you care, God only knows
Two more weary hearts carry on home

You slay me, you kill me
You slay me, only you (slay me)
You slay me, you kill me
Only you slay me (slay me)

We got life, we got death
Yet we face it breath to breath
If you cheer I will scream
No, there is nothing left but these go betweens
You can try, I won’t go
If you stop, I’ll say no
Hold me down I will kiss you here
On the ground our lips are closer to the earth

CHORUS

Spirits mix in our glass
From the future's end to the start of our past
What will be, will be
Let’s raise a toast, one to you
And darlin' one to me
You slay me..
Track Name: Spooky Town
Silver bullets loaded when I come around
Cause I'm searching for you in this spooky town

How many lives lost, how many times
To the vampire villain stealing blood on your dime
Baby I know just who I'm after tonight
You and I can take this spooky town fight

Silver bullets loaded when I come around
Cause I'm searching for you in this spooky town

It's been a long year, you left home
How deep have you changed
How far has the fear grown
Baby I know just where I'm going tonight
You and I can make this spooky town right

Silver bullets loaded when I come around
Cause I'm searching for you in this spooky town

Another bad B-movie, good girl gone bad
The final stroke in the engine
Of the love and trust we had
I need just what I'm feeling tonight
You and I can paint this spooky town bright

I'm looking for you in this spooky town
Silver bullets loaded when I come around
Baby I wanna know, are you still with us tonight
C'mon, let's make this spooky town right

"Spooky Town" was sponsored by Sharon Marshall: 'For Di, my sister, best friend and gig buddy'
Track Name: Blackie
Londontown in the streets, a party that night
Victory Day in the spring 1945
Gordon knew a girl who knew a girl they thought I'd like
What the hell I thought, 'War is over, time to live my life right'
To the Thames on Gordon's motorbike we took a ride
Brought our bottle of whiskey so proud, Canadian Dry
With the widows, the soldiers, the sailors, the airmen
And the children we cheered for our side
At the party everybody was there, but only you caught my eye

Life grows short, the good and bad
We got the best of the years we shared
I was there, you were too
It took a World War to bring the love we knew
You were my bride

Love at first sight, no fairytale that day
When Elaine walked on over there was nothing I could say
Words stuck in my throat, my tongue went dry
But she knew what was on my mind, put her hand in mine
Spirits and Elaine got acquainted for the first time in life
So I stole her away, someplace safe she'd feel right
We talked and we shared and we loved and we cared
In a teahouse for the rest of that night
At the end of it all over a cup I proposed, 'Be my wife.'

Life grows short, the good and bad
We got the best of the years we shared
I was there, you were too
It took a World War to bring the love we knew
You were my bride

Into the Thames we threw the whiskey, parted ways
She went home to her parents and I went back to the base
I'd see her again someday soon but it was a shame
Blackie was what they called me
She never knew my name

Life grows short, the good and bad
We got the best of the years we shared
I was there, you were too
It took a World War to bring the love we knew
Life goes quick, young and old
Our love was to have and to hold
You held me, I held you
57 years a dream come true
You were my bride
You are my bride

... for Grandma & Grandpa Black. Love always, WB
Track Name: Firing Squad
Such a high road woman you're living
I felt the hunger, the need to feed
With you so far above me
I stole some fruit from the low hanging tree
This apartment that we keep
Ain't nothing but a battleground
How can I ever expect to sleep
My heart is shattered by a bulletround

Infidels, sinners and mystics
The company I keep
It's over, over
Your firing squad it's loaded and it's ready waiting on me
Visionaries, rebels and misfits
The kinda guys I'd like to believe
But it's over, over
Your firing squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me yeah, yeah

You keep a close watch over me
You are fueled by vain and pride
Now there's nothing I'd rather do
Than turn the truth back into the lie
This apartment that we keep
It's nothing but a battleground
How can I ever expect to sleep
My heart is shattered by a bulletround

Infidels, sinners and mystics
Company I gotta keep
It's over, over
Your firing is squad it's loaded and it's ready waiting on me
Scoundrels, crooks and pirates
Kinda guys I'd like to lead
But it's over, over
Your firing squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me yeah, yeah
Come on

I line up, you lie down
And you grin and I frown
I feel the silence all around
Hear a pin drop, deadly sound
Beads of sweat on my brow
The firing squad is ready to shoot me down

Infidels, sinners and mystics
Company I gotta keep
It's over, over
Your firing squad it's loaded and it's ready waiting on me
Visionaries, vagabonds, villains
I just wanna be
But it's over, over
Your firing squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me
Shoot me down
Track Name: Unwritten Number
Brother tell me, what you gonna do
When the world that you seek turns on you
Are you solid, can you make a stand
Or are you just a make believe rocket man

Brother help me, oh don't ya know
Just how deep that rabbit hole can go
Straight to the bottom, right from the top
The traveler unknown cannot stop

Lose the past, begin again
You are the end, you are the end
Forget the future, begin again
You are the end, you are the end

Sister soothe me, spells you speak
Will twist, turn and into your heart will creep
You will continue to get what you got
If you continue to think
What you have always thought

Lost past, begin again
You are the end, you are the end
Forget the future, begin again
You are the end, you are the end

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Lost past, begin again
Forget the future, begin again
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
