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 written by Will Black © 2016 (SOCAN)

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 "Fire From Your Spark" was sponsored by Lynnette Holle.

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.'

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..

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'

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

Tonight, lightning will strike ground Get yourself ready, the General blows through town You feel like a fool cause the fuel she's got you need to burn Then she laughs as she pulls you to dance, lesson learned If you can't quite keep up she will pull you in Any line you try you know you could never win And from the moment you start there's no going back She will get into you like a heart attack Not unkind she will guard your soul With every fibre of her being spinning outta control The wave just right crashes tonight Good times will be found Get yourself ready, the bombshell rocks this town You think that you're shy, still you try your luck taking a chance Then you laugh as she grabs you to dance, lesson learned She's your angel above, your devil below Christ, she's got the spirit that you've never known And if you don't give love then you can't risk sin If you don't put out you can never win 'Cause heaven lights up the party in hell When the phoenix rises from the ashes of the spell The wave just right crashes tonight Lightning will strike ground, get yourself ready If you can't quite keep up she will pull you in Any line you try you ain't ever gonna win She's got the spirit you been dying to know Forever your angel and your devil below The phoenix survives the fallout of the spell Now heaven lights up the party in hell If you don't give love you can't risk sin If you don't put out you will never ever win The hearts of the few, you praise The hearts of a son and daughter raised The hearts of friends, lovers come and gone This island still holding on The wave just right The wave just right The wave crashes just right So lookout!

I saw you at the exact moment you saw me Ain't that the way it always works in the movies Love at first sight, meant to be You bought me Pulling closer baby I bought you Strangers for less than a moment The miracle drug moving through me and you You're my crazy diamond It takes one to know In the heat of this disco inferno We dance so slow If you leave me tonight I'd be only half of the whole You're my crazy diamond It takes one to know Crazy some would say For you and I to meet and fall in love this way But there ain't no doubt and there ain't no lie When I look into your eye I saw you at the exact moment you saw me Ain't that the way it always works in the movies Love at first sight, meant to be CHORUS You're my crazy diamond It takes one to know The heat, the inferno We dance so slow If you leave me tonight I'd be only half of the whole You're my crazy diamond Just don't Leave me tonight Only half of the whole In the heat of this disco inferno We dance slow.. "Crazy Diamond" was sponsored by Tim Deaton: 'This song reminds me of when I first met my wife Sue. I asked her if she liked Bruce Springsteen and she said yes. We have been slow dancing ever since.'

I love you, I want you, always I need you It's just love forever unfolding I thank you, I bless you Ain't no me without you It's just love forever unfolding Dancing right Cowboy boots next to heels, steppin' in time The balcony outside Remember when fate revealed What she had in mind I love you, I want you, always I need you It's just love forever unfolding I thank you, I bless you, only you Ain't no me without you It's just love forever unfolding 21 times Fireworks lighting up the sky that night On a boat we did ride One kiss, one promise side by side I love you, I want you, always I need you It's just love forever unfolding Baby girl, baby girl, baby boy Round this world, across this world Together we've known the joy I love you, I need you, baby I want you It's just love forever unfolding Love forever unfolding "Love Forever Unfolding" was sponsored by Laima Heintzman: 'I am so happy to share my beautiful song with you all.
