Track Name: The Comeback Kid
The Comeback Kid

I am the punch drunk boxer
Who has fought one too many
The serial drinker
That drinks to forget
I fall off my stool
If I try to leave her
When the sun goes down
You won’t find me in bed
I am the sailor without a passage
The pilot without a plane
I am the blocked writer
And the runaway train
The words they come slower
Than I believe they ever did,
But trust me my friend,
I am the comeback…..
Comeback kid
(…..Comeback Kid….)

Did you fall for a cowboy,
Some years ago?
Playing Sam The Lion
From The Last Picture Show
Oh, how you rocked me
And oh how you rolled me
Such days & nights then
Such days & nights!
Now I am…
The sailor without a passage
The pilot without a plane
I am the blocked writer
And the runaway train
The words they come slower
Than I believe they ever did
But stay with me lover
I am the comeback…..
Comeback kid.
(…..Comeback Kid….)
Track Name: Someday I'm Going Back To New York City
Someday I’m Going Back (To New York City)
Someday I’m going back to New York City
Someday I’m gonna take you, to see that town
We’ll be leaving on a jet plane
Just you wait & see
And I won’t let nothing
Bring us down

Someday I’m going back to New York City
Someday I’m gonna take you, to see that town
I make promises, I don’t always keep them, no
But this time my word to you is sound

Because you are
The love of my life
Because you,
Are the love of my life

Someday I’m going back to New York City
Someday I’m gonna take you, to see that town
Look up to the sky
And you will find us there
Where all the dreamers & fools are bound
Where all the dreamers & fools are bound
Where all the dreamers & fools are bound

(An idealised moment
Frozen in time
I’d go there again
New York City……)
Track Name: Passing Through
Passing Through

I can make no claim on you
I was just another drifter who was passing through
Passing through, just passing through
There’s a lot history between me & you
But I was always transient, just passing through
Passing through, just passing through
I said I loved you when you were young
That was no lie, but I soon was gone
Passing through, just passing through
Like the wind in the wires
And the waves, upon the sea
I’m forever the passing stranger
-That’s me
It’s a beautiful thing
To see a child grow up
I guess I just wasn’t man enough
Passing through,
Just passing through
Hurting me, hurting you
In your beautiful eyes
Just a sad adieu,
I was just passing through
Passing through,
Like the wind in the wires
And the waves, upon the sea
I’m forever the passing stranger
-That’s me
Can’t hold on to memories for all time
You got to let them fade away & die,
They’re just passing through, passing through
You get your moment in the sun,
But nothing lasts forever,
And that’s all done
Passing through
We’re just passing through
Like the wind in the wires
And the waves, upon the sea
I’m forever the passing stranger
-That’s me (x2)

I can make no claim on you…
Track Name: The Elephant In The Room
The Elephant In The Room

Let’s talk about me,
Let’s talk about you
Let’s talk about,
The elephant in the room
Not the state of the nation
Nor the moon in June
Let’s talk about,
The elephant in the room

Mmm…Darlin’
We can work it out,
I have no doubt,
Mmm…Darlin’
It’s plain to see
We were mean’t to be
Oh darlin’,
Can’t you see…

Let’s talk about me,
Let’s talk about you
Let’s talk about,
The elephant in the room
Not the state of the nation
Nor the moon in June
Let’s talk about,
This elephant in the room

Oh…Darlin’
We can see it through
Perhaps start anew,
Oh…Darlin’
It’s plain to see
You were mean’t for me
But I don’t talk to you,
And you don’t listen to me…

Let’s talk about me,
Let’s talk about you
Let’s talk about,
The elephant in the room

Mmm…Darlin’
We can work it out
I have no doubt
Oh…I’m sure..
That you & me
Are meant to be
But late at night
When you have gone to bed
I sit here waiting
With the same old thoughts
In my head..

Let’s talk about me,
Let’s talk about you
Let’s talk about,
The elephant in the room.
Track Name: Moonlighting
Moonlighting

What made you want to treat me so bad?
Was I the worst time you ever had?
Not so much a thief, but always on the take
Maybe I was moonlighting,
But at least I’m not a fake

I’m not a fake,
I’m not a fake
Not a fake..

Why should I run when you call?
You’ve never done anything for me at all
All of those hang ups that made me so mad
You’re never gonna change
And that’s what’s really sad

Really sad
Really sad
- it’s just sad…

Never ever gonna get it back together
Never ever gonna get it back
Never ever gonna get it back together
Never ever… gonna get it back

No more silly love songs for you
I gave you my heart- You just made me blue
Try giving a little
Instead of just take
Maybe I was moonlighting,
But at least I’m not a fake

I’m not a fake,
No, not a fake
I’m not a fake

Never ever gonna get it back together
Never ever gonna get it back
Never ever gonna get it back together
Never ever gonna get it back
-Finito..
Track Name: If I Ever Let You Go
If I Ever Let You Go

Who will hold my heart in trust?
Who will take me in love & lust?
What would become of us?
If I ever let you go

When something special turns to rust
Seems like the whole world is going bust
My hopes & dreams would turn to dust
If I ever let you go

I’m not the strongest man in the world
And you’re not as tough as you make out you are
I could run, but I wouldn’t get far,
If I ever let you go
If I ever let you go…

You can beat your hands on my chest
I’m a fool that always knows best
How could I settle for second best?
If I ever let you go

Who will hold my heart in trust?
Who will take me in love & lust?
What would become of us?
If I ever let you go

If I ever let you go
If I ever let you go..
Track Name: ME
ME
See the boy who took your side?
That’s not me, That’s not me
See the boy who loved your pride?
That’s not me, that’s not me
Lost so much, with my ego & lies?
That’s so me, that’s so me
Think you know all I can be?
You don’t know me, don’t know me.

Touch me,
Hold me
Want me
Need me
Touch me,
Hold me
Want me
Need me

See the boy,who came back to you?
That’s not me, that’s not me,
See the boy, as something new?
That’s not me, that’s not me,
Can’t make things how,
They used to be?
No surprise to me, no surprise to me
No back to zero in a time machine
In your dreams,
IN-YOUR-DREAMS

Touch me,
Hold me
Want me
Need me
Touch me,
Hold me
Want me
Forget about me.
Track Name: Beguiled By Love
Beguiled By Love
You took the money
You threw away my heart
To you love is cheap
You tore us apart
You take, and take
And you take some more
You think you won the battle
But you ‘ll lose the war
Beguiled by love..
(I was)
Beguiled by love
Now I’ve had enough
Some girls are sweet as sugar
Some girls they kick n’bite
You kicked my head in baby
But that don’t mean you’re right
You take & you take
And you take some more
Some people open their hearts
But you shut the door
Beguiled by love..
(I was)
Beguiled by love
Now I’ve had enough
Every day I don’t call you
Each day we don’t speak
We think it makes us stronger
In fact, it makes us weak,
There are no winners,
Not me, not you
It’s just a fool’s game
And you know that it’s true
Beguiled by love..
(I was)
Beguiled by love
Now I’ve had enough
Maybe I’m a loser
I lost my heart over you
Perhaps you are the stronger one
Or perhaps you’re sad too?
You take & you take
And you take some more
It’s just a fool’s game
And I won’t play anymore
Beguiled by love..
(I was)
Beguiled by love
Now I’ve had enough.
Track Name: Gentle My Mind
Gentle My Mind

Love, love, love
Gentle my mind,
Love, love, love
Don’t make me unkind
See…
What you have done
To me
See…See…See…
What you have done

Love, love, love
Gentle my mind,
Love, love, love
Don’t make me unkind
One & one
Don’t make two
One & one
Makes me & you

Get back, get back,
To when love was kind,
Gentle & new…
Get back get back to when
I was so in love with you…

Love, love, love
Gentle my mind,
Love, love, love
Don’t make me unkind
You hurt me
I hurt you
Trapped as we are
In patterns of blue

Get back, get back,
To when love was kind,
Gentle & new…
Get back get back to when
I was so in love with you…

Love, love, love
Gentle my mind,
Love, love, love
Don’t make me unkind
One & one
Don’t make two
One & one
Makes me & you.
Track Name: The Ballad Of Abby Lane
The Ballad Of Abby Lane
Saw a photograph of you
From yesterday
I had almost forgotten you
Until that day
You were my first love
When I was just a boy
I learned about love
The pain & the joy
I wasn’t the alpha child
Nor the leader of men
So Abby didn’t see me
Way back then….
Some boys are good at football
Some boys no good at all
Takes a while to
Find the groove
If you ever find it at all
At the end of the party
When the slow dance came around
I lost sight of Abbey
And I took a fall
While I was with some gentlemen
Getting my head kicked in,
Abby was outside
Getting it in…
So my dad came & got me
He sneered at my pain
And I knew I’d lost more than just
Sweet Abby Lane..
You get drunk & stupid
And cry ‘til you’re numb
And then you toughen up a little
Until you’re ’someone’
Now the more that they want you
We play like we don’t care
Hard lesson to learn but
In the end you get there
It’s ok, it’s ok
If you were in love with him
When the blows came down
I never felt a thing..
Saw a photograph of you
From yesterday
I had almost forgotten you
Until that day
You were my first love
When I was just a boy
I learned about love
The pain & the joy.
Track Name: What Will I Do With My Heart?
What Will I Do With My Heart?

What will I do with my heart?
Now you have torn it apart
Where will I now go to be free?
Now there is no more you & me

It’s not the end of the world..
It’s not the end of the world
It’s just the end of the world for me..
How can I ever be free?
When you live inside of me
When you live inside of me

What will I do with my heart?
Now we are strangers at last
Where will I go now I am free
There’s nothing left here for me

It’s not the end of the world..
It’s not the end of the world
It’s just the end of the world for me..
How can I ever be free?
When you live inside of me
When you live inside of me

What will I do with my heart?
Now you put me in the past
Where will all our lost moments go?
Gone but not forgotten by me, no,no

It’s not the end of the world..
It’s not the end of the world
It’s just the end of the world for me..
And how can I ever be free?
When you live inside of me
When you live inside of me
When you live inside of me.
Track Name: When We Were Lovers
When We Were Lovers

When we were lovers
I used to think
It would last forever
When we were lovers
I was yours,
And you were mine forever
But the dark clouds took
The ceiling to my mind
And shadows grew in the corners
Over time
When we were lovers
The moon & the stars
Were ours,
Yours & mine to keep
When we were lovers
You think that you’ll always smile
But how I weep
Because the dark clouds took the ceiling
To my mind,
And all contact between us
Was lost in time
When we were lovers…
(Slipping away downstream)
When we were lovers
(falling apart, at the seams)
When we were lovers
When we were lovers
(Speaking but nothing said)
When we were lovers
(Going, out of my head)
When we were lovers
And when the memories flow
I spend a little time
In your afterglow
(When we were lovers)
And when the memories flow
I spend a little time in your…
Afterglow.
(When we were lovers)
Track Name: Born In The Sky
Born In The Sky

I was born in the sky,
But I soon fell down to earth
I was born in the sky,
But I soon fell down to earth
But I soon found out
How little I was worth

I soon found out
I soon find out…
What this life is
All about

I was born from heaven
But the devil soon spoke to me
I was born from heaven
But the devil soon spoke to me
You get born blind
Soon you’ll see

I soon found out
I soon find out…
What this life is
All about

I was born in the sky,
But I soon fell down to earth
I was born in the sky,
But I soon fell down to earth
I soon found out
How little I was worth
