The Lyrics

NIGHT CHILD

Right here before me, this fallen angel from my past
She’s sittin’ back sipping slowly
On a drink that always lasts & lasts

I’ve been a dreaming, thinking about the days gone by
I’ve only had my time for living &
The days I tried to fly, away

I need your loving tonight
You know you always make me feel alright now
I need your loving tonight, night child

These pools of darkness
Your eyes tell no lies
What is this madness,
Don’t sit there & cry, don’t cry

I need your loving tonight
You know you always make me feel alright now
I need your loving tonight, night child

We’ve got to live with all the things we have done
There’s no use in cryin’, what’s done is done

I need your loving tonight
You know you always make me feel alright now
I need your loving tonight, night child

OCTOBER GREY

Well, It’s been awhile & I still remember
The smile you kept for me
Lately I have missed you & it hits me
In the morning when I’m cold

I have nothing to say

I can’t change a thing
I can’t change a thing

If I knew, what I know
If I said, what I meant
When all the big dogs get to grow their own
Everybody’s gotta call some place home

I have nothing to say
Memories, memories in october grey

I can’t change a thing
I can’t change a thing
You know I just can’t change anything
I can’t change, change a thing

Yeah, wrapped in october grey…

I have learnt, not to trust
I got to watch everything I feel
You’ll never know ‘cause I’ll never let you see
What I’ve done, what’s become of me

I have no words to say
Memories, memories of mother’s day, oh no.

I can’t change a thing
I can’t change a thing
You know I just can’t change anything
I can’t change, change a thing

THINK

All you men with aching greed
Don’t you realise that the people need
The children need a helping hand
Life means nothing in your houses tall
Never had your back’s against the wall
With a gun at your head

I see no fun in laughing all the time
All those ruby smiles & all those funny lines
They don’t mean a thing to me
I don’t have time for that

Live your life in luxury
Don’t know what it’s like out on the streets
Without a friend to help you through the night
First it’s there & then it’s gone
Then you realise it’s not much fun
When you practice to deceive

I’ve seen so many things
Knights of daze & fallen kings
Times when everyone lies to you all the time

Time in our hands it’s going slow
Before too long it’s gonna blow
It’s all going to blow up in our face
You’ve got fancy names for your evil men
They’re going to take you in their world of sin
World of sin where you’ll be all alone

FRIEND OF MINE

Don’t laugh, don’t cry
Don’t do anything at all
All the feelings i once held inside
Have flown away
Don’t talk, don’t walk
Don’t you run away & hide
Just have another drink & wipe your
Tears away, talk away the night

Don’t worry, you’ll always be a friend of mine
Don’t just sit around
Don’t sit around all day & cry
Don’t worry, you’ll always be a friend of mine

Don’t forget, don’t relive
Don’t you think the worst of me
Time changes everything we know
Well, it’s all just turned around
It’s turned around

So many things & I’ve got so little time
No need to complicate & I’ve got no time to try
I’ve realised the heart is a siamese tear

Don’t worry, you’ll always be a friend of mine
Don’t just sit around
Don’t sit around all day & cry
Don’t worry, you’ll always be a friend of mine

I will always have time for you
Always try to find or make the time
You will always be a friend of mine

LIVE TO RIDE

All my brothers in their colours
Whiskey ghosts on thursday nights
Standing, drinking like shadows
No-one here looking to fight

Don’t take too much to get in trouble
Or many words to be a fool
If violence is your action
Front on up to the hard knock school

I don’t understand, you can’t let people be
Life don’t always go to plan
I live to ride, ride free

In your eyes I see a sadness
My friend, that’s no excuse
Crashed your world & now it’s madness
Hey man, that’s no excuse

Take this as a warning
Make sure you think it through
Be careful who you threaten
Hammer’s back & there’s six holes in you

I don’t understand, why you can’t let people be
Life don’t always go to plan
I live to ride, I ride free
Riding free

HITTING MYSELF IN THE HEAD

Yeah, just because I’m talkin’
Don’t mean that I’m not thinkin’, thinkin’
Running all this through my mind

And just because I’m screaming
Don’t mean I’m saying anything
All the noise I make comes to nothing at all

Well, hey, just because i’m sleeping
Don’t mean that I’m not listening, listening
In my dreams I hear you call

Yeah, well, just because i’m laughing
It don’t mean I think your funny now honey
Don’t you know the jokes on us

I feel like hitting myself in the head
If I cut off both my ears are you gonna listen
How can you hear me when you just keep
Talking on & on, on & on
Everything I’ve heard from you,
There’s nothing new

I don’t want petty confrontations
Sick to death of twisted allegations
All I want to hear is the simple truth
Tell me the truth

LAST DREAMS FALL

I need a little help to keep me honest
To be honest I need help
It’s not that I’d lie to you
I’m just lying to myself

Don’t need no help to do my shoes up
I ain’t got no laces in my boots
Sometimes I need a leg up
So I can get a better view

Don’t wait for tomorrow to see
Start right now, live each minute free
I’ll not leave a thing undone
When my last dream falls

I need a little love to be happy
Well I’m happy in love
Don’t want no hollywood slow dancin’
Just a little love

Don’t wait for tomorrow to see
Start right now, live each minute free
I’ll not leave a thing undone
When my last dream falls

Don’t you ever stop believing
You can be anything

I need a little help to be honest
To be honest I need help
It’s not that I’d lie to you
I keep lying to everybody else

Gonna run though I can’t walk
I know what time is worth
I’ll not leave a thing undone
When my last dream falls

HELPING HAND

Sometimes things get a little hazy
Sometimes I think i’m just a little crazy
I don’t even know my own name
Soon all of me will go on up in flames

Wearing scars on my arms & they’re in my eyes
Are you friends or enemies dressed in disguise
So hard when everything runs against me
Jealous words turn into a love/hate frenzy

Won’t someone please understand
Won’t someone lend me a helping hand

Time is up to do the time that I’ve left undone
Time to grab my hat, grab my coat, going to load my gun
Silly things, always are the ones that turn out worst
And it seems the ones who love you
Always hurt you the most

Won’t someone please understand
Won’t someone lend me a helping hand
Won’t someone please take the time to think
All your actions and words
Don’t always say what they mean

Since I was a child I used to dream of so many things
Superstars, the bizarre, kings & their pretty queens
Now it seems I need a shot, a drink to jog my thoughts
Why this happens all the time, is it just because

Won’t someone please understand
Won’t someone lend me a helping hand
Won’t someone please take the time to think
All your actions and words
Don’t always say what they mean

Somebody say what they mean

HOLDING ON

I’ll be holding on for time
I’ll be holding on for time
Wouldn’t deceive you, tell you a lie
I’ll be holding on for time

Why can’t I see for sight
Do you always have to be right
There’s no recovery ‘cause you’re the cure
No-one answers your door

It’s just so easy for you to ignore
We’ve all made mistakes that we’re so sorry for
Hope you realise I’ll make no compromise

I’ll be holding on for time
Till that time begins to slide
I once had you, you could’ve been mine
I’ll be holding on for time

It’s just so easy for you to ignore
Everybody makes mistakes that we’re so sorry for
Hope you realise i’ll make no compromise

Do you hear my words to ignore me
Look at my eyes another story
Do i have to get down on my knees & break down

I’ll be holding on for time
Only you can read my mind
I once held you close, you could’ve been mine
Well i’m holding on, yes I’m holding on
I’ll be holding on for time

It’s just so easy for you to ignore
We’ve all made mistakes that you’re never sorry for
Hope you realise I’ll make no compromise

I’ll be holding on for time

HERE I GO

I can’t think straight
Voices scream insane
Calling out to let it go
Just let it go

I’ve thought for too long
Must be right I can’t be wrong
Now I find that my mind
Is just losing time

Well it takes so much time before you realise
Somethings can never change
They always stay just the same

First taste of death is sweet
Feel it burn internal heat
Driving me to white light, just killing time

It takes so much time before you realise
Somethings can never change
They always stay just the same

No comeback
Playing with a stacked deck
You lose, you only cheat yourself
Come with me, take my hand
Help me to make a stand

I can’t give in, my mind & heart
Mind & heart bleed
It’s no suprise my friend another hero dies
What goes down comes back around,

It never ever ever lies
It takes so much time
Somethings can never change
They always stay just the same.

GOT IT

Well, it’s a hot night,
Excitement
And in the heat of the night
The flames ignited

I see you smiling, standing there
With so many beside you
How can I chose from plastic faces
And xmas presents done up in june

Well I don’t know why I am what I am,
But that’s alright
I can tell you
You either got it or you ain’t (rpt)

Well there’s this cool breeze
Blowin’ through the city
And in the heat of the night
It sweetly kisses my skin

Mini-skirts, long legs & painted faces, sin, sin, sin
I don’t go just anywhere
I don’t please just anyone, that’s right

If you think you fit the bill, well, c’mon baby
Show me your skill tonight, tonight, tonight
You either got it or you ain’t (rpt)

Well it’s such a hot night
I’m undecided
But in the heat of the night
I get so excited

I look around & see the scene
Of pretty faces & make-up dreams
Of all you people standing there
Your looks won’t get you anywhere at all

I don’t preach philosophy and I don’t tell anyone
Just what they should be
But I can tell you this

You either got it or you ain’t

babe
