I gotta watch myself, take extra care See all the danger signs popping up everywhere I gotta shut the door, I gotta draw the line I gotta listen to my head and not my heart this time I gotta measure up every little thing I do or I find myself falling for you You know you dress so fine, yeah you look so sweet You're turning everyone's head walking down the street You've got an angel's face, you've got the devil's smile You've got deep dark eyes honey, you're a little wild Yeah you're so fine, I don't know what to do I find myself falling for you Falling for you... I gotta anchor down, I gotta take control I gotta hold back a tide that's rushing right down to my very soul I got a racing pulse, I got an urge inside It's hotter than a two dollar pistol boy, it won't be denied Here I go again, I can't believe it's true I find myself falling for you Falling for you...

Moving On 02:54
This summer heat is giving me the chills These vagrant ways remain within these hills Gave it a try, settling is not my way so when the rain comes, that's when I'm moving on You've grown on me - my usual cue to leave This clean air is getting hard to breathe That mountain range always too far away so when the rain comes, that's when I'm moving on What's going on? What's going on in my head? One day I'm staying. Next day I'm leaving All these events have their consequence It's hard to know where it went so wrong The lake's been drained. All the life has gone If I've a chance, I have to take it now so when the rain comes, that's when I'm moving on

On My Own 04:13
I'm turning these four walls into my home I never thought I'd live alone, I'm on my own There's nineteen years of you and me Packed up in boxes under my feet, We're history I've got some plants that I put in pots A money tree for luck and forget-me-nots, Forget-me-nots There's my TV screen, for months it's been black You always fixed it, You had the knack, You won't be back My second-hand lounge is purple and green It's much brighter than my TV screen, I wish I could scream I paid too much much for my new washing machine The cycle's too long and my clothes aren't clean I wish I could scream. Why can't I scream? A photo of my Mum is up on my wall She's beautiful, she's strong, not even five feet tall I miss my Mum And beside my Mum, a photo of my son He's handsome, he's loyal, he's my fragile one My fragile son There's my single bed where I miss your heat I wish I could cry myself to sleep Wish I could weep. Why can't I weep? Our wedding photo used to sit by the 'phone I never signed up to live on my own. I'm on my own. I'm turning these four walls into my home

You thought that you left me sinking in this hole Now you've changed your mind, it's tearing apart my soul Think we can go again, it's easy to say but your heart doesn't always lead you in the best possible way You wanna come back 'cause you're feeling alone Nothing's gonna change, you'll be bringing it all back home Bringing it all back home Buried all our troubles 'til the hurt was gone Thought I was over you and it was time to move on You brought those feelings back, tough choice to make Not a simple matter of a little give and take Well you wanna come back 'cause you're feeling alone What's gonna change? You'll be bringing it all back home Bringing it all back home Time to think back now, you're stringing me along Make up and break up, it's an old familiar song I see it in your eyes, the way you hesitate Won't you turn back now, you know it's never too late Well you won't come back 'cause you've made it known Nothing's gonna change, you'll be bringing it all back home Bringing it all back home

Let's Drive 04:24
Let's drive, let's travel light Drive through the day into the night Let's drive, let's travel far Drive through the night, in the dark in the car In the dark in the car as the world rushes by The car engine purrs a soft lullaby Rest your head, rest your head, it will all be alright As we drive through the day into the night Our wounded hearts are on the mend There's hope ahead around the bend Wheels turn, turn on the tar Drive through the night, in the dark in the car n the dark in the car as the world rushes by The car engine purrs a soft lullaby Rest your head, rest your head, it will all be alright As we drive through the day into the night

Whoops-a-daisy love, you've fallen again No need to cry just bite your lip and count to ten Ups-a-daisy now you're a mess there on the floor Does it really hurt that much? Are you really that sore Never tell nobody if you're feeling low 'cause feeling low's a crime you miserable so and so What do you mean you're still in bed? You said you'de meet me down the town? Stick a smile on your dial, No you can't wear your dressing gown Feel your pain but don't complain Keep your troubles to yourself, don't be a drain Drag your aching feet but make sure you stay upbeat Stick a grin above your chin and never admit defeat Onward and upward drag yourself up from the floor What do you mean you're not sure you can get out the door? Fresh air will do you good, just you wait and see Walk off some of those kilos, get some vitamin D Stay calm and cool when you're feeling the heat Stay upright and strong even when you're weak For every bright side they say there's a dark but you're only allowed to show the light in your spark Remember honesty's the best policy but when they ask "how are you?" Lie politely through your teeth "I'm great. And you?" Don't dare tell them the truth, don't be a dramatic so and so because even though they asked they don't actually want to know! When it comes to social media there's an unspoken rule That separates the cultured from the ignorant fool Remember "only positive comments are allowed on this site" Because negative is wrong and positive is right Well you're damned if you do and you're damned if you don't so the best you can do is whatever floats your boat and I am one who likes to have my say and the ones that like me, like me that way so to the ones who like me, yes I've fallen again I'll just have a little cry and then I'll count to ten I'm sorry I'm such a mess here on the floor and yes it really hurts that much and yes I really am that sore

She's the salt of the ocean, she's the ebb and flow She's the sun rays at dawn, she's the full moon glow She's every wondrous colour in every rainbow Now it is time to let her go Now she flies like an angel and she shines like the brightest star Her mortal battle is over. She is close and she is far Now her spirit's in the mist and her soul rests peacefully She did her best, we know she did her best Now hear her whispers on the breeze Now her beauty lingers on in her children and our memories long She fought hard and she fought strong She is here now and she is gone And the darkness in her body has turned to pure white light Sweet relief, oh sweet relief, now she is dancing in full flight Yeah she is here, still, just out of sight She's the salt in the ocean, she's the ebb and flow She's the sun rays at dawn, she's the full moon glow She's every wondrous colour of every rainbow Now it is time to let her go There's a party on the other side, a party on the other side, a party on the other side She's the salt in the ocean, she's the ebb and flow She's the sun rays at dawn, she's the full moon glow She's every wondrous colour in every rainbow Now it is time to let her go There's a party on the other side, a party on the other side, a party on the other side
