Track Name: Back Street Blues
I'm sick and tired of these back street blues today
I'm tight-rope walking in two-tonne shoes today
Getting up ain't as fun as it ought to be
It doesn't seem to work that way for me

So hold my hand hand please
Hold my hand please

I look around and I don't know where I am
The mirror shows a face that I don't understand
I stumble down and land right on my knees
I could get knocked over by the breeze

So hold my hand please
Hold my hand please

Every day is just the same
When I hold my head in my hands and I feel dazed
No-one sees the wood for the trees
Until the axe comes down and brings you to your knees

So hold my hand please
Hold my hand please
Hold my hand please
Hold my hand please
Track Name: It's Been a Long Time
It's been a long time since you made a sound
Since you laid me down
Since you turned my world around
It's been a long time
It's been a long time since you came around
Made my heartbeat pound
With you hair all flowing down
It's been a long time

Ooo, it's been a long time
Ooo, it's been a long time

It's been a long time since I made you smile
Since I drove you wild
Oh Lord it's been a while
Its been a long time

It's been a long time since my blood ran cold
With a lust for life
And a fear of growing old
It's been a long time

Ooo, it's been a long time
Ooo

It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time
It's been a long time

I've had a hard time trying to not feel cold
When a cold wind blows
And it chills you to the bone
I've had a hard time
I've had a hard time trying to replace you
With the birds and the booze
Right now anything thing will do
I've had a hard time

Ooo, I've had a hard time
Ooo, I've had a hard time
Track Name: Oxygen
I know you're around on the other side of town
Every day, every day
Summer's passed and I missed my chance
And it eats away

But my heart is breaking now
And my food ain't staying down
My oxygen's run out
My oxygen's run out

Have you grown, have you got old?
I'd sure like to know
Do you ever think of me and smile
Or do I make you moan?

Cos my heart is breaking now
And my food ain't staying down
My oxygen's run out
My oxygen

There's a song on my radio
That simply isn't right
All you need is love
Is a lie

Cos my heart is breaking now
And my food ain't staying down
My oxygen's run out
My oxygen's run out

My oxygen's run out
My oxygen's run out
My oxygen's run out
My oxygen's run out
Track Name: Lemonade
I don't see you much anymore
I really hope you know it's not your fault
No not at all
It's amazing to me
How days just fade away
And time becomes a memory
A memory

Independence is the key
But it's the luxury
Of all the dreamers who are free
They'll never taste the air we breathe
They're too enticing, too lip-biting
Too just be dull and lonely
And lonely

I used to be a young young boy but now I'm getting on
There's a cold place where we're heading and we all go there alone
And the mischief will kill me
Before I'm dead and cold

We used to play when it was hot
With paper planes and daisy chains
But now the rain don't never stop
We used to lie out in the shade
And when life gave us lemons
We turned them into lemonade
Into lemonade

I used to be a young young boy but now I'm getting on
There's a cold place where we're heading and we all go there alone
And the mischief will kill me
Before I'm dead and cold

We used to lie out in the shade
And when life gave us lemons
We turned them into lemonade
Into lemonade

I used to be a young young boy but now I'm getting on
There's a cold place where we're heading and we all go there alone
And the mischief will kill me
Before I'm dead and cold
Before I'm dead and cold
Before I'm dead and cold
Before I'm dead and cold
Track Name: Jack 'n Jill
Oh Lord
It's been a long while since I spoke to you
I've had a hell of a time if you know what I mean
And I'm sure you do
Demons and devils
Have taken their toll just like you said they would
But I just can't leave them alone
And go to work on my soul like I know I should

I come up for air,
Man, I can't breathe
My head goes down but I can't sleep

Mother, I'm falling apart at the seams tonight
If you could look at your son
In the witching hour he would give you a fright

I come up for air,
Man, I can't breathe
My head goes down but I can't sleep


Oh Lord
It's been a long while since I spoke to you
I've had a hell of a time if you know what I mean
And I'm sure you do
Demons and devils
Have taken their toll just like you said they would
But I just can't leave them alone
And go to work on my soul like I know I should

I come up for air,
Man, I can't breathe
My head goes down but I can't sleep
Track Name: Boy Amongst The Stars
You always knew this time
though it caught you by surprise
You packed your bags and left your home
For the soul in someone's eyes

Boy amongst the stars
You never thought you'd come so far
As you did today
You'll make your mother proud
If you can set alight this town
In a million ways

Oooo you're the boy amongst the stars
Even though some things didn't seem to go your way
Oooo you're the one who bears the scars
And you're waiting for the time that they fade away

You've worn your medals quite some time
And they cannot touch you now
But nothing stays the same forever
Though it does in your small town

Boy amongst the stars
You never thought you'd come so far
As you did today
You'll make your mother proud
If you can set alight this town
In a million ways
In a million ways
In a million ways

Oooo you're the boy amongst the stars
Even though some things didn't seem to go your way
Oooo you're the one who bears the scars
And you're waiting for the time that they fade away

Oooo you're the boy amongst the stars
Even though some things didn't seem to go your way
Oooo you're the one who bears the scars
And you're waiting for the time that they fade away
