Run 03:30
Daddy don’t bring home the bacon Momma don’t butter the bread The baby’s been crying and pleading Since the love’s fallen out of the nest He’s drinkin’ on into the daytime She’s cryin’ on into the night Fighting all day and all evening But when it’s this wrong you can’t make it right Strike a match and let it burn Grab the baby from the bathwater Settle up, live and learn And run, baby, run You can lie down deep with a secret Wallow close in the grave But it’s the child that sings like a mockingbird Looking for the way out of the golden cage Strike a match and let it burn Grab the baby from the bathwater Settle up, live and learn And run, baby, run

Little yellow house on Bennett Street The smell of lilac in the backyard stream Chinese checkers and melted ice cream The basement secrets that I still keep All along you were a home to me I said goodbye, but somehow it won’t leave me Packing up the treasures of our love in a box Haunted by the feeling of Holding onto to the ghost of Sarah Wasn’t it just yesterday? Wake up one day and realize that everything has changed The chair you sat in, the ribboned linens The time of your living has left the room This old house will be no more We’ll lock the memories behind this door All along you were a home to me And forever more you will always be Packing up the treasures of our love in a box Haunted by the feeling of Holding onto to the ghost of Sarah Wasn’t it just yesterday? Wake up one day and realize that everything has changed Little yellow house on Bennett Street I miss you, do you miss me?

Western Bell 03:26
Take the chain off the door my dear No one knows that I’m coming here Turn the covers and cover the mirror -oh-oh White lines and whisky trail Binding this fine fate You’ll try to save it but it’s too late oh-oh See your heart/soul you left it there In a room at the Western Bell In a hand basket to hell Western Bell Western Bell Crimson stains on the carpeting Of a man I hardly knew I just did what I had to do oh-oh A dirty deal in a real tight skirt He took more than he deserved They call it crime, but it’s justice served oh-oh See your heart/soul you left it there In a room at the Western Bell In a hand basket to hell Western Bell Western Bell They check in, but they don’t check out In the rooms at the Western Bell You can try but you’re gonna fail (find out) Western Bell Western Bell Dark and quiet in a real nice suit He’s cashing in on a deal he’s due So save your tears cause you always knew oh-oh See your heart/soul you left it there In a room at the Western Bell In a hand basket to hell Western Bell Western Bell They check in, but they don’t check out In the rooms at the Western Bell You can try but you’re gonna fail (find out) Western Bell Western Bell

Well there's a little tiny hole in what you have been sayin' Word has gotten out about it You can go and water down the truth about it now But it won't change the way that you played it Cuz when push comes to shove Remember this, love I'll be one step ahead of the game So just keep your head down when you think of coming 'round There's nothing more to say about it Your actions gonna speak louder than your words And you'll be sitting in a paper tower Cuz when push comes to shove Sure enough I'll be one step ahead of the game Well if you're gonna fight fire with fire You're gonna get to see the darker side Time to pack it in with your tail between your legs Cuz there's one thing I think you're forgetting I know all your secrets when you were lying in my bed One more word and you'll be regretting Cuz when push comes to shove Sure enough I'll be one step ahead of the game

Put your arms around me and don't say a word Put your head on my shoulder 'cuz I know it's hurts Something remembers how this will go When you're not fighting the fight anymore Well there's no use in lying we've been playing this game Expecting the worst and hoping for it to change So lay it all open; throw your cards down You just gotta play it til you play it out Finally it's gone Finally it's broken Finally it's over And I'm still hanging on Turn down all the talking Leave it all behind Fold up your defenses This time It's only a feeling that's likely to change I'm not going nowhere til you stop running away Something remembers how this will go When you're not fighting the fight anymore Finally it's gone Finally it's broken Finally it's over And I'm still hanging on Turn down all the talking Leave it all behind Fold up your defenses This time

The Crown 02:37
Is every turn you turn around taking you further away? Is everything you thought you knew turning the other way? Follow down that lonely road of second guessing and doubt Get yourself as low as you let yourself before you let yourself out Higher, higher, higher all the way to the crown higher, higher, higher all the way to get down Is your heart in line with your blue sky streak speaking to your core Making room for something else calling you back to the door And every time you yield even when it makes you cry You’re one step closer to what you came here for Higher, higher, higher all the way to the crown higher, higher, higher all the way to get down Ain’t no truth until you see The only truth is what you believe Higher, higher, higher all the way to the crown higher, higher, higher all the way to get down

Fool 03:24
Fool fool for love I have tried again But words that you say now only hurt me and turn my heart to stone Over + over..... I’m just a fool for it Lure Lure me in The charm of falling in But you deny me something sweeter It’s all I ask of you Over + over I’m just a fool for it Fool fool for love I have tried again But words you won’t say now only hurt me and turn my heart to stone Over + over..... I’m just a fool for it I’m just a fool for it

Push me, pull me, chain me to the back seat Chew it all up and spit it back out Tease me, please me, make me think you love me Tell me that you can’t do without it Talk straight through me i ain’t the kind to fall for excuses Cheap games and losing i’ll only let you bury the bruises Oh-oh-oh here we go I’ve been around the block enough to know Oh-oh-oh here we go Take it or leave it I don’t give a damn Play me, shame me you don’t know the first thing 'Bout how this is gonna go down Shakin' those senses, rendered defenseless Ya think you gonna make it to the end of this round Talk straight through me I ain’t the kind to fall for excuses Cheap games and losing i’ll only let you bury the bruises Oh-oh-oh here we go I’ve been around the block enough to know Oh-oh-oh here we go Take it or leave it I don’t give a damn
