Track Name: Trace Your Tattoo
TRACE YOUR TATTOO

I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo

Don’t piss your day away
You know I got that touch you crave
What is there left to lose
Don’t fake what you never really had
I know you got attitude back
That ink you wear is true

I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo
Skin on skin, trace your tattoo

Across your side, along your spine
The inside curve of your thigh
I could

So don’t fake what you never really had
I know you got attitude back
That ink you wear is true
I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo
Don’t piss your day away
You know I got that touch you crave
What is there left to lose
Left to lose now, baby

I’d bet your soul on it
I’d take all that you gotta give
Just let me yeah trace your tattoo

Skin on skin, trace your tattoo
Track Name: Original Rose
ORIGINAL ROSE

I kiss the good girls goodnight on a Saturday night
I kiss the bad ones too but they couldn't make me feel alright like you do
Oh baby, you are one of a kind

We fell in and outta love throughout the years that we shared
We ran with the devil at our heels and we lived without care
Only you
Oh baby, you are one of a kind

I keep on waiting, holding, holding on
Cannot forget you my original rose
I will remember good times, good times gone
Can't live without you my original rose

Nightclub nation to the highway of my own hometown
Ain't no one left to kick me around quite like you
Oh baby, you are one of a kind

Without the grace of a lady I'm just losing my mind
You were the best friend needed that I'd ever find
Can't fight truth
Oh baby, you are one of a kind

I keep on waiting, holding, holding on
Cannot forget you my original rose
I will remember good times, good times gone
Can't live without you my original rose
Original rose, original rose
Baby, you are my original rose

This love struck world it's just a broken ruin of hearts scarred, lost and won
In this darkest hour before dawn the first rose blooms and it's you, my only one

GUITAR SOLO

I keep on waiting, holding, holding on
Cannot forget you original rose
I will remember good times, good times gone
Can't live without you my original rose
I'm waiting, holding on
Can't live without you myoriginal rose
Original rose, original rose
Baby, you are my original rose
Track Name: Vintage
VINTAGE

Decades finish
Fashion will change
My baby so vintage still remains the same
Plymouth Barracuda
Save these streets
Behind the wheel she steals my heart, my dream

Girl you gotta be X4

Dynasties end
Crusades will fall
My baby so vintage still the queen of them all
Play guitar, sing to me
She rocked the solo, brings the whole roadhouse to its knees

Girl you gotta be X4

She's got it, she’s got it
Everybody that she knows they want it
Ride, let it ride – vintage
She's got it, she got it
Everybody that she knows they feel it
Play, let it play – vintage

Girl you gotta be X4
Track Name: Holy Love
HOLY LOVE

This fuse we share is burning
Maybe I am finally learning
What it takes to heal a heart
Wishin' that you could show me right from the start

I got a holy love
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love

I cut my soul, lay it on the line
Drink me up 'til the well run dry
I lie here with you on this new moon night
Your smile so crooked and the moves you use so right

I got a holy love
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love

I promised you rainbows
(Oh no, all you brought was the rain)
I'm flirting with madness
Still all I can feel is the goddamn pain

I got a holy love
Hold on my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
Hold on now baby
Hold on now darling
Hold on now my baby dove
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
I got a holy love
Track Name: Pretty Garden
PRETTY GARDEN

Your pretty garden, right next door
Your pretty garden, so sweet the summer storm
Flowers and cherries drip above in the trees
Your pretty garden call to me

Your pretty garden, where we play
Your pretty garden, our sanctuary
Rock the rhythm, entertainment tonight
Your pretty garden, treat me right
Down down down

Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down

Your pretty garden, away we will steal
So electric and real
Can't fight the vixen she's the dreamer I wanna know
Your pretty garden, let it grow
Down down down

Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down
Through holes in heaven she call down

Through holes in heaven... She call down

Your pretty garden
Track Name: Rift Valley Fever
RIFT VALLEY FEVER

Touchdown Nairobi, the Third World welcomes me today
From the girls, all the action in the places where I used to play
Out of the dust with sunlight through acacia trees
She comes for me walking, haunting like a demon in a fever dream

Black woman treat me wicked
Black woman worth the ticket
Black woman treat me wicked
Black woman worth the ticket

Strange heat under unfamiliar stars
She’s got, she's caught me, the local drug is running hard
My blood on fire, how could I ever be the same
It's criminal, Rift Valley Fever in my brain

Black woman treat me wicked
Black woman worth the ticket
Black woman treat me wicked
Black woman worth the ticket

Back in the West desire will never break
Rift Valley Fever, the only cure for how I ache

Black woman treat me wicked
Black woman worth the ticket
Black woman treat me wicked
Black woman worth the ticket
X2
Track Name: Hell Over Heaven
HELL OVER HEAVEN

Love lost, a broken cross
Watch pirate flags unfurl
You break me, I break you
This game we play it's how we choose
To drive this wicked world

Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could gain
Well hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave

Sha Na Na, Sha Na Na, Sha Na Na
Whoa, whoa yeah
X2

You break me, I break you
Games of chance we will lose
A runway, a highway
Hey baby, we're here to stay
Can't deny being born for you

Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could gain
Well hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave

A runway, a highway
Anyway I'm next to you girl
Love lost, broken cross
Together all alone we watch
Pirate flags unfurl

Hell yeah, I take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could say
Oh yeah hell, I'd take hell over heaven
For the harlot I crave
Hell, I'd take hell over heaven
You are the prize I could say
Come on hell, I'd take you over heaven
For the harlot I crave

Sha Na Na, Sha Na Na, Sha Na Na
Whoa, whoa yeah
X3

You are the harlot I crave
Track Name: Forever Was Never Enough
FOREVER WAS NEVER ENOUGH

My heart, your vice I ain't even got the rights to
Lookout for you, your body untrue
Push me to fall at your feet, no place left to crawl
A promise to keep cuts so damn deep
No, it's not enough
When you hold me all alone in the dark it's tough
And it's wicked that you still scream for my touch

It was never enough (Never)
Forever was never enough (Never)
Take your shot to blow us all apart
No, it's not enough

This city, bells ring shout out the joy that forever brings
Pretty, little things, lie broken untrue
You take lives one at a time, now it's down to mine
A secret to keep cuts so damn deep
No, it's not enough
When you hold me all alone in the dark it's tough
And it's wicked that you still scream for my touch

CHORUS X2

GUITAR SOLO

It's not enough
When you hold me all alone in the dark it's tough
And it's cursed, it is blind, and it's wicked that you still scream for my touch

CHORUS X2
Track Name: Christine, Dangerously Close
CHRISTINE, DANGEROUSLY CLOSE

I’ve been watching you baby
From any angle that I can
Living proof gives me strength to understand
You keep saying that you want me
But you honor your wedding band
If only time and space we could command, Christine

Dangerously close
Desire, desire will not lead you home
Oh Christine, now we are
Dangerously close
The fire, the fire the hell I have known
Christine, now we are

Seven years to the day
And high school memories rule
I still surrender only to you
The moonlight ain’t no stranger
Just another midnight rendezvous
Ain't no sacrifice pulling closer to you

CHORUS

Hand in hand we count stars
So many worlds so far away
But down here darlin', we still got our own lie to play
You got my back, I got yours
That tripwire we've set keep us safe
From that one last step we've been dyin' to make

CHORUS

Christine, we are dangerously close
Now we are

Hand in hand
Hand in hand, Christine...

You be queen I'll be king of this one life stand
