Track Name: Right by your side
I’VE BEEN UP I’VE BEEN DOWN
WENT UP NORTH HEADED DOWN SOUTH
BEEN TO THE EAST WAY OUT WEST
ONLY ONE PLACE I LIKE THE BEST

RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
BABY YOU MAKE IT RIGHT
NO WORRIES ON MY MIND
RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE

FLYING HIGH LAYING LOW
I HIT THE JACKPOT AND LOST IT ALL
THERE WERE DAYS WHEN THINGS WERE SWEET
PLENTY TIMES I COULDN’T GET BACK ON MY FEET

RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
BABY YOU MAKE IT RIGHT
NO WORRIES ON MY MIND
RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE

I GOT WASTED I’VE BEEN STRAIGHT
I’D SETTLE DOWN BUT SOON I’D STRAY
I WAS LOST THEN I WAS FOUND
IT AIN’T THE SAME WHEN YOU’R NOT AROUND

RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
BABY YOU MAKE IT RIGHT
NO WORRIES ON MY MIND
RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
Track Name: Better of alone
SEARCHING FOR A PLACE CALLED HOME
TIRED OF THIS DIRTY ROAD
LONGING FOR A SHOULDER TO LEAN ON
SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER YOU ‘TIL DAWN

BUT YOU KNOW
YOU’RE BETTER OFF ALONE

SEARCHING FOR PEACE OF MIND
TRYING TO LOSE THE TROUBLES ON YOUR MIND
LONGING TO LOSE YOURSELF
WISH YOU WERE SOMEONE ELSE

BUT YOU KNOW
YOU’RE BETTER OFF ALONE

NEVER FIND WHAT YOURE LOOKING FOR
NO MATTER WHAT YOU GOT YOU STILL WANT MORE
NOTHING CAN EVER FILL THAT HOLE

BUT YOU KNOW YES YOU KNOW
YOU’RE BETTER OFF ALONE
Track Name: Ravens Cry
FEEL SO HELPLESS WHEN YOU STRAY
I’M IN PAIN AND DISARRAY
TRY AND FACE ANOTHER DAY
AND THE MOON SHE HIDES AWAY

THOSE TRACK MARKS ON YOUR ARM
TELL OF WICKED HATEFUL CHARMS
AND NOW SLEEP IS LIKE A DOG
THAT JUST WON’T HEEL

OH RAVENS CRY

WELL I KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
YOU’RE RIGHT HERE BUT ALREADY GONE
YOUR SOUL’S BEEN WHISKED AWAY
BY A BIRD OF PREY

OH RAVENS CRY
Track Name: To Hell
SAYING GOODBYE AIN’T NOTHING NEW
IT’S WHAT I’VE BEEN DREADING SINCE I MET YOU
I LEARNED A LOT BUT NOTHING AT ALL
THEY SAY THAT PRIDE COMES BEFORE A FALL

I SEE THE SAINTS HAVE COME FOR YOU
AND YOUR NEW ANGEL SHE’S RIGHT ON CUE
AS I FACE THE SETTING SUN
I FEEL SO WEARY I AM UNDONE

GONNA DRY MY SORE AND WEARY EYES
FIND A WAY TO STAY ALIVE
BUT I HEAR THE DISTANT RINGING BELL

GONNA DRY MY SORE AND WEARY EYES
IT’S TAKING ALL I HAVE TO STAY ALIVE
BUT I HEAR THE DISTANT RINGING BELL
FEELS LIKE ITS CALLING ME TO HELL
Track Name: Big city lights
YOU SEEN ‘EM COME YOU SEE ‘EM GO
TRYING TO FILL A HOLE I SUPPOSE
THIS TOWN WILL USE YOU UP AND SUCK YOU DRY
AND SPIT YOU OUT AT THE END OF THE NIGHT

BIG CITY LIGHTS SHINING BRIGHT
YOU GOT RAMBLING ON YOUR MIND
BIG CITY LIGHTS DRIVE YOU WILD
BUT YOU WON’T FIND NO PEACE OF MIND

BROKEN PROMISES SHATTERED DREAMS
THIS DAMN PLACE AIN’T WHAT IT SEEMS
IF YOU GOT MONEY YOU CAN HAVE SOME FUN
DON’T ASK FOR FAVOURS WHEN THE MONEY IS GONE

BIG CITY LIGHTS SHINING BRIGHT
YOU GOT RAMBLING ON YOUR MIND
BIG CITY LIGHTS DRIVE YOU WILD
BUT YOU WON’T FIND NO PEACE OF MIND

EVERYTHING ROUND HERE’S FOR SALE
TAILOR MADE TO EASE THE PAIN
MAKE BELIEVE FOR A LITTLE WHILE
PRETEND EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT

BIG CITY LIGHTS SHINING BRIGHT
YOU GOT RAMBLING ON YOUR MIND
BIG CITY LIGHTSDRIVE YOU WILD
BUT YOU WON’T FIND NO PEACE OF MIND
Track Name: Forever lonesome
IM A LONESOME AS CAN BE
AINT NOBODY CARES BOUT ME
MY SHIP IS DRIFTING OUT AT SEA
FOREVER LONESOME
FOREVER LONESOME

AINT NO PLACE WHERE I BELONG
POOR HEART IS LONGING TO GO HOME
GOTTA KEEP MOVING ON
FOREVER LONESOME
FOREVER LONESOME

IM A LONESOME AS CAN BE
AINT NO WAY OUT I CAN SEE
LOVERS LANE JUST AINT FOR ME
FOREVER LONESOME
FOREVER LONESOME

FOREVER LONESOME
FOREVER BLUE
FOREVER HEARTBROKEN
SEARCHING FOR CLUES
FOREVER LONESOME
FOREVER A FOOL
FOREVER LONESOME
FOREVER LONESOME
Track Name: The road
MAY THE ROAD KEEP STRETCHING OUT FOR YOU
AND THE SIGNS ON EVERY CURVE READ TRUE
AND THE PATH YOU TRAVEL BE BRAND NEW

I CAN SEE YOUR BRIGHT LIGHTS BACK AGAIN
AND I KNOW THAT WE’LL ALWAYS BE FRIENDS
‘TIL THE END

IF YOU LEAVE THIS PLANET BEFORE I DO
REST ASSURED I’LL SING THIS SONG FOR YOU
MAY THE ROAD STRETCH ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
MAY THE ROAD STRETCH ON AND ON AND ON
Track Name: Cachet
SO YOU’RE AFTER THE BIG ONE HONEY
KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE
YOUR HANDS ON THE MONEY
DON’T FORGET TO KEEP YOUR POWDER DRY

DISREGARD YOUR FRIENDS AND FOES
IN THIS WICKED GAME ANYTHING GOES
AFTER ALL YOU’VE GOT A BIG FISH TO FRY

BRING THE FIRE BRING THE RAIN
INFLICTING ALL OF THIS PAIN
IN THE NAME OF LOVE OR SO YOU SAY

THERE’S A LOT RIDING ON YOUR PLANS
YOUR MORALS ARE BURIED DEEP IN THE SAND
GOTTA SAY I AIN’T YOUR GREATEST FAN

I KNOW YOU THINK I DISAPPROVE
I CAN SEE THROUGH YOUR EVERY MOVE
A PRETTY FACE DON’T MEAN A PRETTY HEART

YOU’RE JUST LIKE A CHEAP BOUQUET
WORN AND FORGOTTEN BY THE END OF THE DAY
AND YOUR CACHET WILL FADE AWAY
Track Name: Don't know when I'll be back again
WE OUGHT TO TRAVEL LIGHT
DON’T LEAVE A THING BEHIND
BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS LIFE
TREAT EVERYBODY KIND
STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF
DON’T STRIVE FOR FAME AND WEALTH
KEEP SEARCHING ‘TIL YOU DIE
NEVER STOP TO QUESTION WHY

GOTTA TIE ALL THE LOOSE ENDS
DON’T KNOW WHEN I’LL BE BACK AGAIN
DON’T KNOW WHAT TOMORROW BRINGS
DON’T WANT NOTHING
GOT A SHIRT ON MY BACK
AND SHOES ON MY FEET
THIS WORLD WILL PROVIDE
EVERYTHING I NEED
WITH LOVE IN OUR HEARTS
NOTHING EVER GETS TO HARD
LIVE EACH DAY LIKE IT WAS THE LAST
KEEP THE DEMONS IN THE PAST
STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF
DON’T STRIVE FOR FAME AND WEALTH
KEEP SEARCHING ‘TIL YOU DIE
NEVER STOP TO QUESTION WHY
Track Name: Still on the run
HEY IT’S ME BABY
THE ONE AND THE SAME
YES I KNOW IN MY BLACK HEART
I’M STILL TO BLAME
DON’T WORRY DARLING
WHAT’S DONE IS DONE
LOOK AT ME SWEETHEART
I’M STILL ON THE RUN

I TOOK YOU DOWNTOWN
AND YOU CHANGED YOUR NAME
COULD HAVE GIVEN YOU BABIES
BUT I JUST GAVE YOU PAIN
WHEN YOU CRY IN THE EVENING
AND THINK IT’S ALL DONE
DON’T WORRY BABY
I’M STILL ON THE RUN

I’M SO FAR AWAY AND I PROMISED TO STAY
KEEP YOU AWAY FROM HARM
THIS AIN’T THE WAY I WANTED TO SAY
I WANT YOU BACK IN MY ARMS

GOTTA GO NOW DARLING
THIS OLD HEART WEIGHS A TON
REMEMBER LIFE IS FOR LIVING
SO GO CHASE THE SUN
BUT WHEN I’M IN YOUR MIND
AND YOU THINK THAT WE ARE DONE
DON’T GO CHANGING YOUR POSTCODE
‘COS I’M STILL ON THE RUN
