Subway crawling nowhere bound Snow is falling all around Frozen to my bones am I Nothing circulates inside Stop and go and stop again Headlines rant about Iran Keep my head down blizzard comes – can’t wait to get back home You’re my fire – you light my way I feel the heat – and know I’m safe Without you I’m nothing but A frozen man stuck in a rut You turn my winter – to a summer day Walking down the empty street Red light shining at my feet Limousine just passed me by Partygoers look outside People huddle in their door Buy a smoke for a dollar more Make a sweater from a rag - Pass the bottle in the bag You’re my fire – you light my way I feel the heat – and know I’m safe Without you I’m nothing but A frozen man stuck in a rut You turn my winter – to a summer day Light me up - send me to the sky Make me fly – higher than the night Never say goodbye Never ask me why See the city lights above Glitter brightly saying love Conquers isolation hate - Open arms don’t hesitate You’re my fire – you light my way I feel the heat – and know I’m safe Without you I’m nothing but A frozen man stuck in a rut You turn my winter – to a Summer day

It takes a strong man To love a strong woman To stand up beside her When the storm is coming When the tempest howls And the wild winds blow You got to take her by the hand And never let her go You can be The man she wants The man she needs Beside her ________ Now if love were easy Like Sunday morning It could fade away Without a warning But times are changing Yesterday is gone You got to step it up Or she’ll be moving on _____ It takes a strong man To love a strong woman To stand up beside her When the storm is coming When going gets rough And you can’t find your way Pick yourself up To fight another day You can be The man she wants The man she needs Beside her _______ She don’t want no quickie No rolling in the hay When love is cheap She’ll just throw it away She ain’t no fish that you Catch with a hook Or a red pen number in your Telephone book _________ It takes a strong man To love a strong woman You gotta be strong You gotta stay cool You gotta belong to her Don’t be no fool You gotta be strong You gotta stay cool You gotta belong to her Don’t be no fool It takes a strong man To love a strong woman To stand up beside her When the storm is coming When your knees are weak And your back is breakin’ Never give up And think your love’s wasted You can be The man she wants The man she needs Beside her You gotta be strong You gotta stay cool You gotta belong to her Don’t be no fool You gotta be strong You gotta stay cool You gotta belong to her Don’t be no fool

Rosaline 03:29
Rosaline Took the train To the end Of the line Starting walking To the river Where she knew She’d see a sign Rosaline Rosaline Roam no more And stay a while Rosaline Rosaline Won’t you please Give me a smile Rushing water In her mind Told her stories Out of time Forgotten love An ancient heart Showed the way To heaven’s part Rosaline Rosaline Roam no more And stay a while Rosaline Rosaline Won’t you please Give me a smile The stars above Welcome you Welcome you Rosaline The water dark Embraces you Embraces you Rosaline As I wander Cross the hills Where the purple Darkness fills At my back The wind is cold And her name is Still untold CHORUS Rosaline Rosaline Roam no more And stay a while Rosaline Rosaline Won’t you please Give me a smile The stars above Welcome you Rosaline The water dark Embraces you Rosaline Goodbye…Rosaline

Lucky 03:16
I was down and out Had nothing but doubts The world was cold and I did what I was told Then I saw your face In that lonely place My battered soul got a Second chance to roll My rotten fortune turned around The goodness I had lost I found I’m feeling lucky you’re my girl I’m gonna tell it to the world I’m feeling lucky you’re my girl I’m gonna tell it to the world I ain’t never said What was in my head It was all too hard cause I didn’t know where to start I found my/self And got a little help My fortune smiled baby I was reconciled I don’t care who knows it now With gold and silver you endow I’m feeling lucky you’re my girl I’m gonna tell it to the world I’m feeling lucky you’re my girl I’m gonna tell it to the world I can’t give you everything But I got my little song to sing I’m feeling lucky you’re my girl I’m gonna tell it to the world I’m feeling lucky you’re my girl I’m gonna tell it to the world

You call your limousine Go to any club you want And when you’re feeling hungry You buy the restaurant Women come right to your door Champagne and cocaine too You never lift a finger Don’t have to tie your shoes Welcome to the one percent You got women, song, and wine It don’t matter how much you’ve spent Cause brother you’re doing fine You made it to the one percent Still you’re wanting more Your house it is a golden pent With a lock on every door You got double-barrelled lattes And Beluga on a plate Got a banker for buddy And a model for a date Flying in your private jet The seats are leather clad You live in blissful ignorance Of a world that’s going mad Welcome to the one percent You got women, song, and wine It don’t matter how much you’ve spent Cause brother you’re doing fine You made it to the one percent Still you’re wanting more Your house it is a golden pent With a lock on every door How much pleasure can one man seek How much food can one man eat How many cards can one man bet How much sex can one man get How much gold can one man wear How many lions can one man dare How many putts can one man sink How much booze can one man drink Welcome to the one percent You got women, song, and wine It don’t matter how much you’ve spent Cause brother you’re doing fine You made it to the one percent Still you’re wanting more Your house it is a golden pent With a lock on every door Welcome to the one percent

Pumpkinhead 03:22
When I was a little boy My mother took away my toys Said now its time to be a man This evil you must understand No matter where you go in life You must remember my advice Pumpkin Head is comin’ back He’ll drop you dead right in your tracks Pumpkin head is coming back Crawlin down the railroad track Big white teeth go click and clack Got his brain in a gunny sack At midnight when the moon was bright His ghostly face came to my sight He looked at me and gave a grin Said boy you’re never gonna win I said it ain’t my time to go So put away your gallows pole Go back into your hollow tree You got no power over me Pumpkin head is coming back Crawlin down the railroad track Big white teeth go click and clack Got his brain in a gunny sack Oh no what shall I do Oh no my poor life is through The end is coming near The gallows man is here When pumpkin head knocks on my door He wants to feast on human gore I’ll hit him with my two-by-four And roll his head across the floor Pumpkin head is coming back Crawlin down the railroad track Big white teeth go click and clack Got his brain in a gunny sack Oh no what shall I do Oh no my poor life is through The end is coming near The gallows man is here Pumpkin head is coming back Coming back, coming back

Don’t ask me about my love The girl I once held close She’s not here any more I’m feeling so morose All the signs were positive I thought we had a good thing The good times kept on rolling I felt just like a king Ooh what a fool I was! She traded me in For another guy A newer model To keep her satisfied Sent me a text That said goodbye It was a pity How I cried Once I was her number one Walking arm in arm We glowed with newfound love I was smitten by her charms I tried to make her happy For my moment in the sun Then I got her message Saying baby I’ll be gone Ooh what a fool I was! She traded me in For another guy A newer model To keep her satisfied Sent me a text That said goodbye It was a pity How I cried I tell my/self It don’t matter She’s out of mind and out of sight But her memory Is like a dream That haunts me day and night Nothing lasts forever Is what the poets say But as I walk the streets at night I wish it weren’t that way The other girls I meet They try to make me smile I tell myself to let it go But it’s useless to deny Ooh what a fool I was! She traded me in For another guy A newer model To keep her satisfied Sent me a text That said goodbye It was a pity How I cried I got a choice To either die Or quit this lonely town With its ghosts Of the past That only bring me down I’m gonna hit That road to---night When she comes round I’ll be out of sight Where I’m bound I’ll start a--gain I’m gonna find somebody to love Yes I’ll find somebody to love

You treat me cold as ice With a frozen arctic stare I can’t get no reaction You’re just playing solitaire I think somebody hurt you To make you turn away How much longer can you Pay for yesterday? Use it or lose it That’s the way it’s gotta be Make it or break it That’s a guarantee Use it or lose it Baby don’t you know Give it or take it Tell me yes or no C’mon and give me something A curse or kiss Take me in your loving arms Or throw me in the abyss What’s it gonna take For you to come alive Smash the lock that keeps you From being by my side Use it or lose it That’s the way it’s gotta be Make it or break it That’s a guarantee Use it or lose it Baby don’t you know Give it or take it Tell me yes or no No one lives forever You get no second chance Miss it once it’s gone It’s a cruel circumstance So take me while you can Before I walk away I got a restless heart But never pay to play Use it or lose it That’s the way it’s gotta be Make it or break it That’s a guarantee I ain’t gonna quit Until you come around And see the love I got, yes I’m bayin’ like a hound Don’t be so indifferent To my tortured soul You can lift me from my coffin In this dirty hole No one lives forever You get no second chance Miss it once it’s gone It’s a cruel circumstance Take me while you can Before I walk away I got a restless heart But never pay to play Use it or lose it That’s the way it’s gotta be Make it or break it That’s a guarantee Use it or lose it Baby don’t you know Give it or take it Tell me yes or no
