Track Name: The Exit's at the Back
The exit's at the back ,  the exit's at the back
how come you've not run through it yet , left me and not looked back
well I don't know
I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2
but I don't care

have I been so mean to you , have I been so mean to you
 have I been so mean there's nothing left that's mean that I could do that I don't know
I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2
but I don't care
 
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
cos I don't care

say you love me still  , oh say you love me still
let the doctor take your temperature I'm  sure you must be ill
but I don't know
I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2
but I don't care

is that your car in the drive ,  isn't that your car in the drive
how come you've not got in it yet , driven off anywhere you like
well I don't know
I don't know what's going on , I don't know what went wrong x2
but I don't care
 
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
cos I don't care
 
 instrumental verse
 
the joke will be on me , oh the joke will be on me
when finally you leave with someone else and let me be
and I won't know
I won't know what's going on and I wont know what went wrong
oh I won't know what's going on and I wont know what went wrong
but I wont care...
 
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
if there goes another one       run down babe run down
cos I don't care

rpt 1st verse then end
Track Name: Bad Woman
Accidents will happen at sea
have you seen what happened to me
oh to any body else but me
oh everybody else but me could see
that you're a bad bad woman

my friends have been running you down
but I've been so blue and lonesome
since you took all my money and and the train and left town
oh to any body else but me
oh everybody else but me could see
that you're a bad bad woman

but I just cant seem to help myself
or ever let you be
oh why I just cant seem to forget my self
and give my poor head peace..

my papa he told me the truth
he said son a girl like that will be the ruin of you
oh to any body else but me
oh everybody else but me could see
that you're a bad bad woman

oh any body else but me
oh any body else but me
oh now everybody else but me
could see

you were a bad woman to me
such a bad woman to me
but I just cant seem to help myself
or ever let you be
why I just cant seem to forget my self
or give my poor head peace
Track Name: Sometimes
sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind
sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my wind
sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind
well I just can’t keep from crying some times
well I just can‘t keep from crying sometimes

sometimes I can feel the tears roll steady on my cheeks
sometimes I can feel the tears roll steady on my cheeks
sometimes I can feel the tears roll steady on my cheeks
and I just cant keep from crying sometimes
well I just cant keep from crying sometimes

sometimes troubles rain down fire from the sky
sometimes troubles rain down fire from the sky
sometimes troubles rain down fire from the sky
and I just cant keep from crying sometimes
well I just cant keep from crying sometimes

instrumental verse

sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind
sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind
sometimes my troubles weigh so heavy on my mind
and I just cant keep from crying sometimes
well I just cant keep from crying sometimes
well I just cant keep from crying
Track Name: Do Me a Favour
well I wish you would go and leave me yes I do
oh the only thing that's stopping me from leaving you
is to spare myself the pain of telling you , I never want to see you again
oh I wish you would go and leave me yes I do
believe me yes I do
believe me yes I do

can’t you find yourself some other love
what ever it is I have to give you it’s never enough
I'd rather be on my own in an empty nest from where the bird has flown
oh I wish you would go and leave me yes I do
believe me yes I do
believe me yes I do

Can’t you pack your troubles up and go
I guess where we're both bound to end up we'll never know
but as we walk on down that road would it help you , if I lightened your heavy load
oh I wish you would go and leave me yes I do
believe me yes I do believe me yes I do
believe me yes I do
Track Name: Get Real
well philosophy is no good to me
I don't know what I'm doing so I don't need to know why
you think that love will leave you fearless
but fear will leave you loveless every time
you think that death will understand you
when he comes to take your hand and close your eyes
but he will only bring you pain
then he will bring it on again to hear you cry

you need to get with it get real get real to go without x4

even bitterness is precious
so go easy on yours boy don't use it up
your hope is your projection of despair
where you despair of looking up
you think your wife will understand you
when you leave her for a younger fuller cup
life is for the living
and the dead who don't know how to live it up

you need to get with it get real get real to go without x4

so criticize constructively
deconstruct the vain conceits inside your mind
let your karma run your dogma over
let your senses guide you through the lies
when your perpetual emotions
have stalled in the darkness of wasted time
don't let it fool you into thinking
that every thing you think your doing will turn out fine....

you need to get with it get real get real to go without x4

I don't need to know why do you need to know why ... ad infinitum etc
Track Name: Sunset Blues
don’t you go and confess to me
don’t you go and profess to be mine
I don’t want your history
got no need for a mystery fire
now it seems so clear to me
baby as your flame burns higher
though we burned like the setting sun
that devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come
though we burned like the setting sun
the devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come

well you don’t belong to me
so don’t cling on to me so tight
when it’s time for you to go
then I guess you should know when it's right
because when push comes to shove and then shove comes to love
well you know how we fight
though we burned like the setting sun
that devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come
though we burned like the setting sun
the devil that you'd better get to know in the dark has come
Track Name: Me Me Me
women make me drink too much
and smash things up
women make me think too much I wake up every day feeling rough
women make me feel too much
I fall down but I get up
now I realise it’s not them and I can see

it's all about me me me
it’s all about me me me
me me me
it’s all about me me me

women make me sing sad songs
when love goes wrong
I’m all confused and I fall in love
boy is it hard to get along
give me wine women and song
and with the wine and the song I'll get along
now I realise it's not them and I can see

it's all about me me me
it's all about me me me
me me me
it's all about me me me

A problem shared is problem halved
but the other half must be having a laugh
can’t they go and make up their mind
ah don’t they know that it's cruel to be kind
I'm just a man and that's all that I am
so I won't help doing the things that I can
now I realise that it's not them and I can see

it's all about me me me
it's all about me me me
me me me
it's all about me me me
me me me
me me me
me me me it's all about me me me
Track Name: You're on Your Own from Here
well you thought you found your love
but you were wrong , yes you were wrong
what were you thinking of?
now she's gone, yes now she's gone

and now you’re on your own from here
yes you’re on your own from here,
and if that road ahead seems dark it's clear
that you’re on your own from here

and that's why you look so sad,
because she's gone , yes because she's gone
she was the best thing that you ever had
and it's so wrong ,yes its so wrong

to be on you’re own from here
yes you’re on your own from here
and if that road ahead seems dark it's clear
that you’re on your own from here

and that's why you look so blue
because she's gone , yes because she's gone
they can see what she did to you
and it was wrong , yes it was wrong

and now you’re on your own from here,
yes you’re on your own from here
and if that road ahead seems dark its clear
that you’re on your own from here

yes her kiss it felt so good
but it was wrong ,yes it was wrong
you would have stayed in it forever if you could
but now its gone , yes now it's gone

and you’re on your own from here
yes you’re on your own from here
and if that road ahead seems dark it's clear
that you’re on your own from here
that you’re on your own from here
