Track Name: Cryin' Hurt
Cryin' Hurt

You don't listen to me any more
We've forgotten what we're fighting for
Now we hesitate to say a word
All we do is cause a crying hurt

You won't look at me
I won't look at you any more
Like some Faustian pact
There's no going back that's for sure

I'm taking a chance
Gambling that love will return
I dare to remain
Circling its flame 'til I'm burned

Things are out of hand
Things I didn't plan
Oh now we make believe
Everything's OK, everything's OK
Track Name: The Grind
The Grind

Don't look at me I got nothing that you need

Don't turn to me I got nothing you can use
Just got nothing to lose

Why look at me I got nothing on my mind
That why you treat me unkind

I'm up at five cos I'm working all the time
Just to hang onto what's mine

Well I'm a self made man and I'm running out of parts

Well I started out with nothing and I got most of it left
My woman ran off with the rest.
Track Name: Nobody's Girl
You thought he's yours for all time
True love is so hard to find
But he's been cheating you blind
Now you're losing your mind
Now you're losing your mind

You had him under your thumb
Your love was his only one
But you discover he's gone
Now he's out on the run
Yeah he's out on the run

You were somebody's baby
You were somebody's world
You were somebody's angel
You cried so many tears
Now you're nobody's girl

His love is all that you need
But you are down on your knees
You don't know who to believe
Are they laughing at me?
Are they lying to me?

You thought he's yours for all time
True love is so hard to find
But he's been cheating you blind
Treating you so unkind
Now you're losing your mind
Track Name: What Kind Of Woman?
What Kind of Woman?

What kind of woman are you to try and try to run my life?
'Cos I'm not answering to you any time soon
Sure you got the looks got the clothes and the style
But you really got nothing to say
And if I'm the man of your dreams they must be nightmares

I loved a woman like you for a long time
But now she means nothing to me
So baby believe – won't let you ruin my life

What kind of woman are you to try and capture my poor heart
Can't you see it's been broken for a long long time?
If you knew me better you would realise that I am but a lost cause
I'll never be the man of your dreams so get out of here

Won't let you ruin my life
Won't let you ruin my life
No, no, no, no no.

Sure you got the looks got the clothes and the style
But you really got nothing to say
And if I'm the man of your dreams they must be nightmares
(ha ha ha!)
Track Name: Mrs Brown
Mrs Brown

Mrs Brown, Mrs Brown
How'd you like to fool around?
Would you care for company?
Are you lonely just like me?
If I took you for a spin
Would you tell me it's a sin?

Mrs Brown, Mrs Brown
When your husband's not in town
Does he leave you all alone?
Like a dog without its bone?
Can we spend a little time?
It can be your place or mine

Well Mrs Brown I know you're needy
And you know that I am greedy for love
There's no need for complications
And a simple explanation's enough for Mrs Brown
Mrs Brown, Mrs Brown

Mrs Brown, Mrs Brown
I think you'd like to come around
We could meet at half past six
You could show me some new tricks
And I'll show you some of mine
With a meeting of the minds

Mrs Brown, Mrs Brown
If only we was getting down
We could spend a happy hour
And then take a lazy shower
After that we'd simply blow
No-one else need ever know
Track Name: Cynical Love Song
Cynical Love Song

I could write a nifty love song if that would make you smile
Or if it got me in your arms just once in a while
I would sing it personal a secret just for you
As long as it got me a little taste of the things that you can do
They say that love 'aint cheap
Just between you and me
You know you're the one that I adore
That's what this love song is for

Well I know that I'm not perfect and it won't be too long
Until my crystal ball's not working and I can't do right from wrong
But I know there's always something I can turn to in a crisis
To write a smoochy love song and then ask you if you like this
I know your love 'aint free
you got what I need
However much I implore
That's what this love song is for

They say that all if fair in love and war
But this love song is my weapon of choice
That I've been searching for
Maybe a little melody will put your affections to the test
But if it doesn't work I'll just sing for someone else.
Track Name: I Do What I Do
I Do What I Do

You see me running
You see I'm breathless over you
I keep coming around
Can't help myself
Cos you got something
That makes me reckless over you
I keep coming around
Can't help myself

But you know there are times
When I question myself
And for once in my life
I can choose so I choose
To do what I do
I do what I do

You make me shiver
Oh yeah I really got the shakes
I keep coming around
Can't help myself
Cos you deliver
Oh yeah you got just what it takes
I keep coming around
Can't help myself

Anticipation
Oh yeah you got me by the heart
I keep coming around
Can't help myself
And the frustration
Yeah I felt it from the start
I keep coming around
Can't help myself
Track Name: Lift Me Up!
Lift Me Up

When I'm at my lowest ebb and I can't help myself
When I've plumbed my deepest depths and I can't find no help
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up again.

Only shadows all around lost inside my mind
All I need is a little light so I can be found
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up again.

I need someone to raise me
Save me from insanity
'Cos I know I can't make it on my own
Oh I need someone to reach for me
A human touch is reality
Just to let me know I'm not alone
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up again.

When I feel I don't deserve any love at all
I need to know somebody cares enough to break my fall
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up
I need someone to lift me up again.
Track Name: Being Like That
Being Like That

You always did what you wanted to
Somebody hurt didn't bother you
Yeah I always said that you'd pay your dues
Somewhere down the line
You never learn from your own mistakes
You always brag when you catch a break
It's never give cos it's always take
And you're no friend of mine

Being like that, you got no business
Being like that, you got no business
Being like that, you got no business
Being like that, you got no business being like that

Your Mama told you to tell the truth
You turned your back yeah and you refused
When Papa beat you he left you bruised
It comes as no surprise
You take advantage of everyone
And laugh at them when the deed is done
You only look after number one
And that can't be denied

And you don't care
You don't care
You don't care
No you don't care

Two steps forward and two steps back
You're still walking the same old track
If anyone asks it's 'Screw you Jack'
Why you gotta be like that?
Track Name: Fabulous Body
Fabulous Body

I'm gonna tell you a little story...
Well...
I made a coffee and I sat in my chair
The telephone was ringing but I didn't care
Don't need no distractions gotta keep a clear head
She's on a mission you can take it as read
She came a-calling and I'm feeling the strain
She got a fabulous body but not much of a brain

Her Papa's something in the city they say
He runs a pension trust to pass the time of day
He juggles numbers handles stocks and shares
He's a big cheese but his daughter doesn't care
She came to borrow sugar the excuse is so lame
She got a fabulous body but not much of a brain

She used to sing and play a little guitar
But the stockbrokers daughter didn't get very far
A producer, a computer, the back of a car
Twenty BJ's later and they called her a star
But it's just an illusion the songs all sound the same
She got a fabulous body but not much of a brain

Face of an angel
Drive you insane
Fabulous body
Not much of a brain

Well maybe I should take what's been offered and run
But a girl like her is only so much fun
Sure they're fine for a while if nobody gets hurt
But that kind of gift horse is more trouble than its worth
The telephone can ring itself to pieces all the same
She got a fabulous body but not much of a brain
