Track Name: Clipper Ship
on a clipper ship
i will sail along
on a shoestring diet
on a carpet bomb
cos i want you to know
that i was always, and you
you're always with me

down a black hole mine
on an icy lake
i will make you dream
all your dreams away
cos i want you to know
that i was always, and you

you always take me
back, back into the past
cos you know that living it just aint easy
some things they aren't meant to last
so i guess you know how love feels

on a berlin wall
through a howling gale
on a mountain road
when the brakes have failed
i want you to know
that i was always. and you
you are always with me

and it makes no sense
if i made you smile
like a broken fence
all the world beguiled
cos i want you to know
that i was always, and you

you always take me
back, back into the past
cos you know that living it just aint easy
some things they aren't meant to last
so i guess you know how love feels
Track Name: You Don't Have To Worry
i'm just sleeping off some cold fever
just ridin on the strangest high
this is my dirty breakdown
i shot myself but i didn't cry about it
I can't hold this conversation
just leave me here i'll be fine
who cares 'bout the weather station
i know everything'll be alright

you don't have to worry child
you don't have to worry at all
you don't have to worry child
it's all a joke

I've made a big decision
it's gonna change my life
don't try to keep this plane up
just watch the world go by
there's so much information
it just can't all be right
god and all his loving angels
told me everything'll be alright now

you don't have to worry child
you don't have to worry at all
you don't have to worry child
it's all a joke
it's all a joke
it's all a joke
Track Name: I Guess
dressed in black suit
begging for a light
crawling through the ashtrays
every fucking night
cos he's just the kind of guy
that everybody likes

and i guess that's why his nose is bleeding
i guess that's why his friends are leaving
i guess that's why his wife is crying
i guess that's why his daughter's dying

whiskey sour
when he talks about himself
it's a sad sad tale
'bout a man who's been to hell
but the truth is something
that he can never tell

and i guess that's why his nose is bleeding
i guess that's why his friends are leaving
i guess that's why his wife is crying
i guess that's why his daughter's dying

all his friends are famous
that's why he's on his own
propping up the bar
while they repossess his home
just a prada wearing fuckhead
who thinks he's johnny cash
i guess that's why he's in the street
trying to buy some bash
Track Name: Never Want To See You Again
it was hard to find you
you never can tell
where the road might take you
it took me to hell
and the rain keeps falling
down on my head
and from where i’m standing
i wish you were dead

black cloud in the sky
i bet you never cry

oh i’ve found something true
ain’t it funny what a smile can do
tomorrow is the day i curse your name
and i never want to see you again

now the party's over
when you walk in the room
you better keep on smiling
it's all over for you
still you won't be lonely
with so many friends
you know i'm only sorry
i won't see the end

black cloud in the sky
i bet you never cry

oh i’ve found something true
ain’t it funny what a smile can do
tomorrow is the day i curse your name
and i never want to see you again

i never want to see you again
Track Name: Bad Dreams
What are these bad dreams
They keep me awake at night
You should see me crying
Baby you remember
Love is a light
That makes your mistakes fly away
Crashing down
I blame it on the medicine yeah
I blame it on the medicine yeah
Baby you know what I want to say out loud but can't
For the forsaken kiss my wounds
All this automatic flying
For a million miles
I blame it on the medicine yeah
I blame it on the medicine

Take my hand
Wait until the dawn
Wait until the sunlight
Kisses your eyes
All if those dreams are gone

Take my hand
Wait until the dawn
Please wait until the sunlight
Kisses your eyes
All if those dreams are gone
Track Name: The Yellow Sky
all the prayers you make falling
down onto the ground
like a credit card
melting on the stones crying
trying really hard
and every kid throws bombs
but their guns are fake
and the policemen too
making me go crazy
is there something you can do
take me home to where the skies are blue

and the airport lounge dreaming
brings it back again
waiting like a grave
for your empty cheques
wearing plastic gloves
just in case we touch
and the fire's burn
and the sea is red
but i don't want to
know there's nothing they can do for you
take me home to where the skies are blue

You don't know what's going on
You don't even want to know
Just want to sit under the sky if that's alright if that's ok
Track Name: What Made You Change Your Mind?
piano man please understand i need the gospel truth played by those hands
god is dead his lover said the storm blew off his roof
and people looked around to find the whole world bent on cheating time
and you can feel it in your bones

i saw the cold hard luck of everyone
stoop to a new low as the hired guns
watched the sunset as we melted down the gold
i whispered to all the broken elements
about the numbers that were relevant
i saw the signatures and celebrants unfold
and this is the story they told

piano man please make 'em see how the picture changed beyond belief
there's a crazy mountain that's taking up the view
the singers stopped what they'd begun and squandered fortune for the run
you know the way some people do

i took a cold hard look at everyone
i saw the sad eyed man that i'd become
i broke my hands upon the wheels that i had made
i watched my love turn into jealousy
i took my friends and made them enemies
ticked all the boxes that were waiting on my grave
this is the life you must save

piano man you can't deny you try to prise you analyze
the messages keep coming in but they never make much sense
the love betrayed the court room paid the decision changed in just ten days
and now everybody's dead

i saw the cold hard luck of everyone
stoop to a new low as the hired guns
watched the sunset as the desert land was sold
i whispered to all the broken elements
about the numbers that were relevant
i saw the signatures and celebrants unfold
and this is the story they told

piano man i get so tired when the wind blows down the lazy wire
and i can't sleep behind the shooting line
and sometime soon the sun and moon will cry out through the dirty gloom
and you'll forget about your worries too
Track Name: Makes No Sense
the fallen leaves
the tarmac slips
beneath the wheels
the broken trip
begins this way
and time forgot you
down the line
the vengeance
at the warning signs
come what may
a short snap
and the sky is white
the clouds the strangled
empty night
has bled on you
the flies that buzz
the message in
it's the end of love
so war begins
and it makes no sense
whoo hoo whoo hoo yeah
the sword hangs
from the ceiling fan
it's raised above
the gallow hands
that you might pray
the laughing church
won't bring you back
the million eyes that you turned black
will cry for you
and sleep you might
a thousand years
but never break
the wall of tears
that's buried you
it's the mystery of the waterfall
the book of hours
the final call
it makes no sense
whoo hoo whoo hoo yeah
look at the people just pushin their children aside
runnin all the banks right into the ground
shadows at noon who would be the king of this town
when your love has burnt down
maybe it's just the way that she cries
Track Name: Sunshine Majesty
walking down the street
shaking my head one time
you got the sunshine majesty about you
that aint no lie

should i follow you down
when the windblows on your headstone
should i follow you down
when the world can see your new clothes
should i follow you down to the sea
should i follow you down

you've been wasting my time
watching the world go by
you got the sunshine majesty about you
i don't know why

should i follow you down
when your smile turns yellow fever
should i follow you down
like the all time lost believer
should i follow you down to the sea
should i follow you down
Track Name: Cruel As The Wind
I saw the love betray'd in your eyes
I took the hope that you couldn't hide
See I'm the danger up ahead
On the roadside

I heard the prayer where you said it was wrong
But it's out of my hands you're not foolin' me none
I'm the cut of a dull rusty knife
From a stranger

I'm as cruel as the wind
I'm as cruel as the wind
Are you so blind that you really don't see?
How cruel the wind can be

I stole the blue iris diamonds you wore
I took the coal from your hands, 'gave you nothing at all
I'm the thief who comes in the night
While you're sleeping

I got god on the telephone line
He said, "Put down that gun, you're not fooling anyone.
There's no angel a comin' this time,
There's no saviour."

I'm as cruel as the wind
I'm as cruel as the wind
Are you so blind that you really don't see?
How cruel the wind can be
Track Name: Before The Morning Light
there are days
like ours
when everything is low
traffic lights
and my beard's grown too long
wouldn't you like to know what's going on
i can't sleep anymore

empty mouths
explode
vacant memories
weatherman tell me
where will they blow
cos there's no way back
to what i mean
and i can't think anymore

oh i'll cry, cry like a radio all night
oh i'll cry before the morning light has come
before the morning light

many a time
my heart
caught the wars inside
hit so hard
it fell on my head
and wow that hairstyle burned so bright
i can't see anymore

so i'll kiss
your head
before the morning light
and all the words
that we said
will disappear into the night
and it wont hurt anymore

oh i'll cry, cry like a radio all night
oh i'll cry before the morning light has come
before the morning light
Track Name: The Truth About It
i got this love inside
you left my heart in little pieces
i ran against the tide
i can't get you out of my mind

and when the night grows dark
i wish that you could still be here
beside me, when the morning sparks
the truth about it

cos i got this hurt inside
and all the wine can never heal it
and though we burn through time
what's the point of becoming

like the comets flying
once around the wasted blankets
the way we live and die
like coughing spirits

i got this love inside
you left my heart in little pieces
i ran a turning tide
i can't get you out of my mind

and when the night grows dark
i wish that you could still be here
beside me, when the morning sparks
the truth about it
we both know the truth about it
we both know the truth about it
we both know the truth about it
Track Name: Bad Dreams (reprise)
What are these bad dreams
They keep me awake at night
You should see me crying
Baby you know love is a light
That makes your mistakes fly away
Crashing Down
I blame it on the medicine yeah
I blame it on the medicine yeah
