Lyrics

Aeroplane Blues

I’m gonna buy me an airplane
And I’m gonna fly all over your town
I’m gonna buy me an airplane
And I’m gonna fly all over your town
On account of the way you treat me
And the way you put me down

I’m gonna zoom into your bedroom
And make you scream and shout
I’m gonna zoom into your bedroom
And make you scream and shout
Yeah on account of the way you treat me baby
And the way you put me down

I’m gonna warm up my big engine
And aim in your direction
Hey yeah, I’m gonna warm up my big engine
Yeah and aim in your direction

You won’t be able to look in a mirror, baby
Without seeing my reflection
No you won’t

As The Crow Flies

As the crow flies, baby
Well I ain’t so far from you
Oh, as the crow flies, baby
Well I ain’t so far from you
Oh well, since I don’t have wings
I can’t get home as fast as I want to

In a dream last night
Well I heard you call my name
In a dream last night
Well I heard you call my name
Oh and I took it as an omen
And I jumped on the very fast freight train

Well, you don’t know, baby
How I’ve missed your sweet caress
Well, you don’t know, baby
Baby, how I’ve missed your sweet caress
Oh, well when I’m in your lovin’ arms, baby
You know that’s how I’m at my very best

As the crow flies, baby
Well that’s how I’m on my way
Well as the crow flies, baby
Baby, well that’s how I’m on my way

Well if I don’t stop running
I’ll be home before the break of day, yeah
But if I don’t stop running
Gotta keep running
I’ll be home before the break of day

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

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

Snake

Well I see right through you
There ain’t nothin’ you can do
I’ve seen it all and I ain’t got nothin’ more to say
Tel me why if it breaks you can throw it all away
So don’t take it out on me because you’ve only got yourself to blame

Smile you give is all so fake
You got a sting in your tail, you’re a smiling snake
I think of you, ain’t no one quite the same
I got caught out but I won’t get caught again
So don’t take it out on me, you’ve only got yourself to blame

Time moves on, things don’t change
I’ve got my life but you throw yours away
Word got around that you’re insane
It makes me smile and it makes my day
I know you’re looking for a reason
Each and every day
But don’t take it out on me, you’re the one to blame

Everything I Need

A clean shirt, new jeans, a switch card for
Everything I need
New shoes and slick hair, return ticket to go anywhere
There ain’t nothin’ to stand in front of me
To get me where I wanna be
Because I got everything I need

Pretty woman, a fast car, a fancy watch that tells you where you are
No bills, that ain’t paid, I got a nice warm place to stay
There ain’t nothin’ to stand in front of me
To get me where I wanna be
I’ve got everything I need
Everything I need

A clean shirt, new jeans, a switch card for
Everything I need
New shoes and slick hair, return ticket to go anywhere
There ain’t nothin’ to stand in front of me
To get me where I wanna be
I got everything I need
Got everything I need
Everything I need
Yeah everything I need

Angel 'O' Mine

I can see your face, but I know that you’re not there
I can smell your body, your scent still lingers in the air
And it’s been so long, since I held you tight
Angel ‘O’ Mine

And it’s been so long, it’s been so long
I wanna hold you tonight

I can hold your hand now, when I close my eyes
I can feel your body, I can feel it next, next to mine
Yes I can
I can hear your voice as you say goodnight
Angel ‘O’ Mine

And it’s been so long, it’s been so long
I wanna hold you tonight

You make me feel like I’ve never known
And just for you, I’ve got so much love to show
You came along out of the blue, and I would do anything for you

I’m lying here alone, an empty space where you should be
I know it won’t be long now, before you’re lying here again with me
No it won’t

And it’s been so long since I held you tight
Angel ‘O’ Mine
And it’s been so long, it’s been so long, I wanna hold you tonight

Runnin' Out On Me

Ain’t it funny how
Time passes you by
All of the things that I wanna do
I can’t find the time
Used to be so easy
Now I just can’t figure it out
Can’t get through what I need and
I’m falling down slow
‘Coz time is running out on me
Running out on me

I’ve gotta get it together
Before things fall round my feet
Ain’t gonna last forever
I ain’t no more 23
Everybody around me
Asks what the hell is going on
I know I got everything that I need
I’m falling down slow
‘Coz time is running out on me
Running out on me, on me

I wanna wake up tomorrow
Oh, in the morning light
Maybe I’ll get it together
Make everything alright
Because time is running out on me
Running out, running out
Running out on me

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

Soundman

Well excuse me please
You’re standing in my way
I don’t care who you are
I don’t care what you say
They call me the soundman and I’m having a real bad day

Well hey you over there
Turn that damn thing down
Ain’t you been told before
You don’t need it that damn loud
Hey, I’m the soundman and I’ll pull your plugs right out

But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I’ve got control over you
But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I’ll pull the plug on you

Flick that switch, turn that down
Well set it on number two
That sounds alright to me
Don’t care what you normally do

‘Cause I’m the soundman and I know a damn sight more than you
Because I’m the soundman and I know a god damn more than you

But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I control over you
But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I’ll pull the plug on you

But don’t you know, don’t you know
That I got control over you
Don’t you know, don’t you know
I’ll pull the plug on you
Yes I will

Fallin' Down

They’re falling down
Down around my feet
Down on the ground
I’m standing here
And I call out your name
I can’t hear a sound

Who’s the one who’s gonna make it better
What I really need is to get away

You can’t take the pace
So you leave me standing here
Have you had enough
But can’t you make it clear
Well I wish you would
What you want and why you make it harder
What you really need is to get away
Get away

Can’t take the pace
So you leave me standing here
Have you had enough
But can you make it clear
I wish you would
What you want and why you make it harder
What you really need is to get away
