Track Name: That's What I Should've Done
Less time in a darkened room
Looking for a song when I should’ve been looking for someone like you
Oh, for someone like you
Less years living on my own
Building up these four, strong walls when I should’ve been building a home
Yeah, building us a home

CHORUS
That’s what I should’ve done
Instead of crying to the moon I could be flying to the sun
That’s what I should’ve done
Instead of lying in my room I could be trying to have some fun
That’s what I should’ve done
I’ve been denying what was true, but now I’m dying to say to you that you’re the only one
Tell you you’re the only one
Yeah, that’s what I should’ve done

Less days counting nine-to-five
Working for a living when I should’ve been working on living my life
Yeah, on living my life
Less nights in an empty bed
Holding on to nothing but a dream when I should‘ve been holding you instead
Yeah, holding you instead

CHORUS
That’s what I should’ve done
Instead of crying to the moon I could be flying to the sun
That’s what I should’ve done
Instead of lying in my room I could be trying to have some fun
That’s what I should’ve done
I’ve been denying what was true, but now I’m dying to say to you that you’re the only one
Tell you you’re the only one
Yeah, that’s what I should’ve done

BRIDGE
That’s what I should’ve done
In the middle of these long nights, twenty-twenty hindsight
Comes up on the blindside, shows me where I got things wrong
That’s what I should’ve done
All those years I’ve been a-wasting, never quite escaping
Feeling like I’m waiting for chances that have come and gone
Yeah, that’s what I should’ve done

INSTRUMENTAL

Less time in this darkened room
Looking for a song when I should’ve been looking for someone like you
Yeah, for someone like you

CHORUS
That’s what I should’ve done
Instead of crying to the moon I could be flying to the sun
That’s what I should’ve done
Instead of lying in my room I could be trying to have some fun
That’s what I should’ve done
I’ve been denying what was true, but now I’m dying to say to you that you’re the only one
Tell you you’re the only one
Tell you you’re the only one
Yeah, that’s what I should’ve done

Track Name: Man Down
CHORUS
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here
He says his heart is broken and it’s terminal I fear
The only thing to save him is a belly-full of beer
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here

The attack came out of nowhere took the poor boy by surprise
He was on standard night manoeuvres, on a training exercise
She came out of the darkness, shot him right between the eyes
It must have took the poor boy by surprise

The enemy has left the scene but won’t have gone too far
You can run but there’s no hiding ‘cause we all know where you are
She’s sitting with her friends there in the corner of this bar
You can run but you won’t get very far

CHORUS
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here
He says his heart is broken and it’s terminal I fear
The only thing to save him is a belly-full of beer
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here

BRIDGE
Send a medic, send a lawyer, send a priest
Barman, send us more tequila slammers at the very least
Send a taxi, send an undertaker
Because this patient is deceased

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here
He says his heart is broken and it’s terminal I fear
The only thing to save him is a belly-full of beer
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here

Let’s form a band of brothers like we’ve done in days before
With a mission to keep drinking ‘til we can’t drink any more
Love’s a battlefield and we’re all casualties of war
So keep drinking ‘til we can’t drink any more

BRIDGE
Send a medic, send a lawyer, send a priest
Barman, send us ale and whiskey chasers at the very least
Send a taxi, send an undertaker
Because this patient is deceased

CHORUS
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here
He says his heart is broken and it’s terminal I fear
The only thing to save him is a belly-full of beer
Send a medic we’ve got a man down over here

Track Name: Low
I think that I've reached the bottom
Must be the end of the line
Abandoned, lost and forgotten
Oh, I'm gonna do it this time

The feelings built up inside me
Now they won't leave me alone
Standing here with no-one beside me
The voices calling me home

CHORUS
One thing I've gotta know
Just how low can I go?
My pockets filled up with stones
Just how low can I go?
Just how low can I go?

Staring down at the river
Its waters icy and black
I know this can't be forgiven
But there just ain't no turning back

The darkness fills up the spaces
I can't imagine the light
All but the most stubborn traces of hope
Have been washed from my mind

CHORUS
One thing I've gotta know
Just how low can I go?
My pockets filled up with stones
Just how low can I go?
Just how low can I go?

BRIDGE
Soon the weight will be lifted
As I sink down to the deep
Amongst the treasures and the driftwood
I think time's come for sleep
I think time's come for sleep

I guess that I've reached the bottom
This here’s the end of the line
Abandoned, lost and forgotten
Oh, I'm gonna do it this time
I'm really gonna do it this time

CHORUS
One thing I've gotta know
Just how low can I go?
My pockets filled up with stones
Just how low can I go?
Just how low can I go?

Track Name: Crows
From nothing more than dirt and weed
Plough the field, sow the seed
Working ‘til our fingers bleed
A dozen hungry mouths the feed

Stones and dust and rust and bone
Will we finally reap what we have sown?
‘Cause only then we’ll eat what we have grown
In the meantime scare away those crows

CHORUS
We put our faith in God above
He’ll make it rain if we’ve been good enough
So we say our prayers and bless this earth
And praise The Lord for what it’s worth

From morning ‘til the evening comes
Bend our backs toward the sun
So little time, so much to be done (so much undone?)
The race is long but it is never won

Each day brings us no surprise
Tend the crops, watch the skies
No sign of clouds, the spirit dies
The black crows with their beady eyes

CHORUS
We put our faith in God above
He’ll make it rain if we’ve been good enough
So we say our prayers and bless this earth
And praise The Lord for what it’s worth

BRIDGE
I had a dream of getting out
Selling up and heading south
A better life I heard about
But I can’t be sure, I’m plagued by doubt

CHORUS
We put our faith in God above
He’ll make it rain if we’ve been good enough
So we say our prayers and bless this earth
And praise The Lord for what it’s worth

Track Name: God Knows Where
You claimed to know the way
You didn’t need directions
Is this the time to say?
Is it too late to mention?
I think we’re lost out on the road
Don’t think we’ll ever make it home
We must have missed the turning way back there
If we carry on we’re gonna end up God knows where
God knows where

You said you had the answers
You didn’t need no lessons
You used up all our chances
Well, who was I to question?
I think we’re stuck out here alone
Don’t think we’ll ever make it home
We must have missed the turning way back there
If we carry on we’re gonna end up God knows where
God knows where

BRIDGE
I trusted you to get it right
I thought you knew the day from night
I went along without a fight
I see things now, so bright and clear
Let’s switch seats and let me steer
Have faith that soon the right path will appear
And we’ll make it outta here

You always seemed so certain
That you were never wrong
Since I pulled back your curtain
Don’t believe it any longer
This world is full of many things
That you don’t know that you don’t know
We must have missed the turning way back there
If we carry on we’re gonna end up God knows where
God knows where
We must have missed the turning way back there
If we don’t stop soon we’ll end up God knows where
God knows where

Track Name: Dislocated
Dislocated
Separated
I’m out of place in this world

Disappointed
So disjointed
I can’t see the point any more

CHORUS
My square peg won’t fit into
This round hole, oh, it’s no use
I can’t change even if I wanted to
I know what it’s all about
I’ll find it in my stars, no doubt
That I’m designed within to be without

Disaffected
Disconnected
What’m I expected to do

Dissipated
Emasculated
‘Til I slowly faded from view

CHORUS
My square peg won’t fit into
This round hole, oh, it’s no use
I can’t change even if I wanted to
I know what it’s all about
I’ll find it in my stars, no doubt
That I’m designed within to be without

Dislocated
Separated
I’m out of place in this world

Track Name: No Big Deal
CHORUS
It’s no big deal, didn’t mean that much to me
It’s no big deal, plenty more fish in the sea
Life’s a game, you get a roll of the dice and a spin of the wheel
Some you win, some you lose, like I say, it ain’t no big deal

So what I dropped my favourite guitar upon the hard kitchen floor
No wishing’s gonna turn back the clock to that moment before
On the top now there’s a crack in the wood that’s pretty hard to ignore
But I don’t mind ‘cause she still plays pretty good, that’s what a guitar is for

CHORUS
It’s no big deal, didn’t mean that much to me
It’s no big deal, plenty more fish in the sea
Life’s a game, you get a roll of the dice and a spin of the wheel
Some you win, some you lose, like I say, it ain’t no big deal

So what my girl has left me and I’m spending every night on my own
She’d no way of knowing, did I want her to stay or did I want her to go
We’re all ships upon the ocean and this motion’s just the ebb and the flow
But in truth you know I couldn’t care less, so let’s get on with the show

CHORUS
It’s no big deal, didn’t mean that much to me
It’s no big deal, plenty more fish in the sea
Life’s a game, you get a roll of the dice and a spin of the wheel
Some you win, some you lose, like I say, it ain’t no big deal

INSTR.

BRIDGE
I’m not too concerned with what fate’s in store for me
Sing Que Sera Sera, what will be will be
There might be days when I’m not quite sure how I feel
It helps to tell myself it ain’t no big deal

So what that some things didn’t work out, it ain’t no disgrace
For the little that I ever got right I made my share of mistakes
One minute I’m ahead and then the next I’m behind so I don’t make it a race
I meet with triumph and disaster with the same smile on my face

CHORUS
It’s no big deal, didn’t mean that much to me
It’s no big deal, plenty more fish in the sea
Life’s a game, you get a roll of the dice and a spin of the wheel
Some you win, some you lose, like I say, it ain’t no big deal
Some you win, some you lose, like I say, it ain’t no big deal

Track Name: Borderline
Standing on the edge
Of another land
Counting down the years
With a second hand
The moon is high
And the stars are bright
Your eyes shine black
Your skin so white
I don’t know what
I’m gonna find
Across the borderline

People over there
On the other side
They might look like me
But they’re not my kind
No, they walk on fire
And they talk in tongues
They don’t know right from left
They don’t know right from wrong
I’d be the one-eyed king
In that country of the blind
Across the borderline

BRIDGE
I once knew this song
But now my words don’t rhyme
I used to play along
But I can’t keep time
Across the borderline

I heard you calling out
In a whispered voice
You didn’t need to shout
I didn’t have a choice
Lying with you girl
In the dead of night
It’s a brave new world
And I’m scared alright
I can feel the beat
In this old heart of mine
Across the borderline

BRIDGE
I once knew this song
But now my words don’t rhyme
I used to play along
But I can’t keep time
Across the borderline

Track Name: Plans
This old wreck ain't going nowhere
Up on cinder blocks beyond repair
We said we're gonna drive it out of here some day
But it's just sitting in the yard rusting away

This deep well is running out dry
I tried dropping down a stone, got no reply
Now I don't know which one is worse
Can't water my fields or quench my thirst

CHORUS
What I began don’t ever last
These grains of sand they fall so fast
When I make my plans I understand
God just laughs….He laughs
When I make my plans I understand
God just laughs

This little house is falling down
And I said I'm gonna fix it but I don't know how
There’s a hole in the roof and the doors won't close
Waking in the morning with our fingers froze

CHORUS
What I began don’t ever last
These grains of sand they fall so fast
When I make my plans I understand
God just laughs….He laughs
When I make my plans I understand
God just laughs

BRIDGE
Winter's here a little early this year
It gets a little harder each time it comes around
If the snow falls deep and nights stay clear
Then how're we gonna plant our crops in frozen ground?
Then how're we gonna plant our crops in frozen ground?

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
What I began don’t ever last
These grains of sand they fall so fast
When I make my plans I understand
God just laughs….She laughs
When I make my plans I understand
God just laughs

Track Name: One Hit Wonder
CHORUS
You won’t know from where I came but soon you’ll briefly know my name
‘Fore I slide back beneath that rock I crawled from under
One day I’ll take this world by storm and in the morning I’ll be gone
Yeah, I’m just one hit away from a one hit wonder
Yeah, I’m just one hit away from a one hit wonder

Stood at that crossroads in the dust where Robert Johnson met Beelzebub
My soul I offered up but he wouldn’t take it
He said, “I’m powerful that’s true but some things even I can’t do
‘Cause I can tell when I look at you there’s no way you’ll make it”

In a bid to prove him wrong I started writing down my songs
And now it’s ten years later on and I’m tired of trying
My dream of climbing up the charts is broken down and torn apart
Oh, I have suffered for my art but you’re still not buying

CHORUS
You won’t know from where I came but soon you’ll briefly know my name
‘Fore I slide back beneath that rock I crawled from under
One day I’ll take this world by storm and in the morning I’ll be gone
Yeah, I’m just one hit away from a one hit wonder
Yeah, I’m just one hit away from a one hit wonder

So I took what wasn’t mine, those stolen riffs and lifted lines
That we’ve all used too many times in desperation
But when I wrote songs from the heart they came out sad and mean and dark
Oh Lord, deliver some sweet spark of inspiration

Not just the Devil turned me down, no, I’ll be six feet underground
Before I get used to the sound of each door closing
But that end’s not yet in sight and I intend to win this fight
So I had better write or I might start decomposing

CHORUS
You won’t know from where I came but soon you’ll briefly know my name
‘Fore I slide back beneath that rock I crawled from under
One day I’ll take this world by storm and in the morning I’ll be gone
Yeah, I’m just one hit away from a one hit wonder
Yeah, I’m just one hit away from a one hit wonder
