Lyrics

Say Goodbye

One stop town again 
Killing time is getting harder everyday 
It’s alright but I’ve had enough 
Too much of this can drive a man insane 

It’s been too long since I’ve had my fill 
I’m going crazy you know I can’t sit still 
So I’ll say goodbye 
I know you want me to stay 
’Til the next time 
I gotta fly away 
Yeah 

You’re all drunk 
And smoking skunk 
Can’t understand a single word you say 
Play at night, rise and shine 
Got to keep on working
Gotta make it pay 

It’s been too long since I’ve had my fill
I’m going crazy you know I can’t sit still 
I’ll say goodbye 
I’ve gotta fly away 
’Til the next time 
I’ve gotta fly away 

So say goodbye 
I know you want me to stay 
’Til the next time 
I’ve gotta fly, gotta fly away 
So say goodbye 
I know you want me to stay 
’Til the next time 
I’ve gotta fly, gotta fly away

Hero

The sun was shining but you cast a cloud
It started raining, you didn’t hang around
You spend my money, not a cent of your own
You give me the bill, for your ticket home
Yeah 

Oh you wanna be my hero but you let me down
You’re telling me it’s the way to go
I followed you, down that nowhere road

We talked about it, into the night 
When it all goes wrong, I’m the one who’s gotta make it right 
Oh you wanna be my hero but you let me down 
Yeah you let me down, yeah 
Oh yeah

Hey it all seemed rosy, right from the start 
It’s all gone wrong yeah 
You are tearing me apart 
Yeah

You spend my money, not a cent of your own
You give me the bill, for your ticket home
Yes you do, yeah
Oh you wanna be my hero but you let me down
Oh yeah 
You wanna be my hero but you let me down 
Let me down yeah

Nothin' At All

Did have a lot of money, now I got nothin’ at all
Yeah, I had a good time, I drank beer and pissed it against the wall
Now say hello reality, what do I say
Oh I spent the last of what we were saving for a rainy day

But then you say that you love me
That’s when I know everything’s ok
And then you say everything’s alright
You ease my mind when I hear you say
Let’s start over again

3am in the morning crawling back to you
Could get an overreaction but I guess I got nothing to lose
I’m looking for forgiveness for what I’ve done
Want you to see through it all, want to know I’m still your number 1

Oh, but then you say that you love me
That’s when I know everything’s ok
And then you say everything’s alright
You ease my mind when I hear you say
Let’s start over again

Oh, and you say that you love me
That’s when I know everything’s ok
And then you say everything’s alright
You ease my mind when I hear you say

What U Got 4 Me

Hey I ain’t got no money, I can’t live on nothing
All take, no give, now tell me what am I gonna do
Like blood from a stone, candy from a baby
I ain’t gonna get, gonna gonna get a thing from you

So don’t take my time, set me free (set me free)
You won’t lay it on the line, so what have you got for me

You want everything but you’re givin’ just a little
I don’t know why but I know that this ain’t right (this ain’t right)
Like piggy in the middle, I’m stuck in the mud
I can’t sleep at all, it’s keeping me up all night

So don’t take my time, set me free (set me free)
You won’t lay it on the line, so what have you got for me
Oh, what have you got, got for me
Maybe getting older but I’m slowly gettin’ clever 
Can’t tear me down so don’t stand in my way

You don’t understand and you don’t give a damn
Pushed to one side now I ain’t nothing new
I ain’t that better, I just want better
Things just don’t seem the way they used to be
I’m the one, the only one, the only one who’s in charge of my destiny

So don’t take my time, set me free, set me free
You won’t lay it on the line, so what have you got for me, got for me
You won’t lay it on the line, so what have you got, what have you got, got for me

Rainy Day

You can’t tell me anything to change my mind
I’m moving on forwards and I’ll see you way down the line
Sitting on a roundabout I think it’s slowing down
Time to get off it while it’s still going around
Oh I’ve been up and down, I’ve been left and right
I ain’t gonna sit right through another rainy day, hey

(Can you) see it coming at you even where it’s coming from
Do you wanna see this whole thing draggin’ on and on
Don’t ask me no questions I won’t tell you no lies
I can’t get my head around what’s going on in your mind

Oh I’ve been up and down, left and right
But I ain’t gonna sit right through another rainy day
Another rainy day
Another rainy day
Oh, it’s rainin’ again, hey yeah

You can’t tell me anything to change my mind
I’m moving on forwards, see you way down the line
Sitting on a roundabout I think it’s slowing down
Time to get off it while it’s still going around
Going around, oh

I been up and down, left and right
I’m slowly going crazy but I ain’t crazy yet
I’ve been up and down, left and right
I ain’t gonna sit right through another rainy day
Another rainy day
Another rainy day
Another rainy day

Balls Of Steel

You know I got what it takes
Won’t you tell me 
Why the hell am I still standing here
I’ve had my fair old share of bad luck baby
Now I’m a stronger man I ain’t got no fear
They say you gotta fall down, to grease the wheel
And I’m standing here strong, now I got balls of steel 

I ain’t been through the mill but I’ve been damn close
I could tell you stories
That you wouldn’t wanna know
And I wouldn’t change a single thing
I am what I am, you don’t like I can show you the door
Not for the faint hearted
You gotta know the deal
Because they’ll trip you up
If you ain’t got balls of steel
Balls of steel 
Balls of steel 

You know I got what it takes
Won’t you tell me
Why the hell am I still standing here

I’ve had my fair old share of bad luck baby
I’m a stronger man
I ain’t got no fear
No I ain’t
Oh they say you gotta fall down to grease the wheel
And I’m standing here strong now I got balls of steel
They say you gotta fall down to grease the wheel
But now I’m standing here strong now I got balls of steel

Without Wings

I thought I’d write down a little something
Because it’s been a while and I’d like to let you know
That I’ve been thinking
All about you
How strong you make me feel when you’re not around
No matter where you are
You’re my everything
Nothing without you baby
Because a bird can’t fly without wings
Without wings
Sometimes I get a little crazy
And things don’t go so well
And things I can’t explain
I love you
It ain’t enough now
Say how you make me feel when you’re not around
No it ain’t like me
To worry about a thing
Without you I’d crumble away
Because a bird can’t fly without wings
Without wings
Without wings
Without wings

Oh you know me well and sentimental ain’t me
But back then I was a shadow of who you helped me to be
Life ain’t a bed of roses and we’ve been through hard times
But with you around it’s like you help me
You help me fly
Fly, fly, fly
You help me fly
Help me fly
Yes you do
Oh yeah
Because a bird can’t fly without wings

Comin' Home 2 U

I open my eyes to a brand new day
But I don’t feel too good
So don’t get in my way
I been here too long
And I think it’s time to go home
I know you’ll make me feel better
Don’t like to be on my own

That’s why I’m coming home to you

When I first met you, baby
I never thought it could be
So hard to leave you, baby
So hard for me, yes it is
Well, I’ve had my fun
Now I’m counting the days
I know that you’ll be waiting
To take me out of the rain

That’s why I’m coming home to you
I’m coming home to you, oh yeah, yeah

Here I go again
I’ve gotta go away
And I promise you, baby
That never will I stray, no I won’t, yeah

They can try to lead me on
But with you is where I really belong
Don’t you worry about a thing, oh yeah

That’s why I’m coming home to you
I’m coming home to you, oh yeah, yeah

Sometimes It Gets 2 Me

Hard work never bothered me, do anything I had to do
Just trying to make two ends meet, jobs I’ve had a few
Yeah, I don’t want to be a millionaire, you know I’m happy as I am
All I want is to get on air, radio to everybody on dry land

And if I could be somebody else there’s no one I’d rather be
I don’t wanna be nobody else, sometimes it gets to me

I found out a long time ago some of the things that you gotta do
Not what you got, but who you know, so sad but oh so true
Some people want everything, some people want to rule the world
I don’t want none of that, no, all I need is to be heard

And if I could be somebody else there’s no one I’d rather be
I don’t wanna be nobody else, but sometimes it gets to me

I ain’t saying that it wouldn’t be good
To make a little money along the way
I’m only human just like you, just like you
So tell me that there’s another way

And if I could be somebody else there’s no one I’d rather be
I don’t wanna be somebody else, but sometimes it gets to me

And if I could be somebody else there’s no one I’d rather be
I don’t wanna be nobody else, but sometimes it gets to me

Crosstown Traffic

You jump in the front of my car (when you), you know all the time that
Ninety miles an hour, girl, is the speed I drive
You tell me it’s alright, you don’t mind a little pain
You say you just want me to take you for a drive

Crosstown traffic, so hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic, I don’t need to run over you
Crosstown traffic, all you do is slow me down

I’m trying to get on the other side of town
I’m not the only soul accused of hit and run
Tire tracks all across your back, baby, I can see you’ve had your fun but
Darling, can’t you see my signals turn from green to red
I can see this traffic jam is way up ahead.

Hey, Crosstown traffic, so hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic, I don’t need to run over you
Crosstown traffic, all you do is slow me down

I tried to get on the other side of town

Crosstown traffic, all you do is slow me down 
Crosstown traffic, I don’t need to run over you 
Crosstown traffic, all you do is slow me down
