Illegal
 
No one's keeping score
But every day I love you more and more
You're breaking all the rules girl
Just by being you
The rest just can't compete
You left them standing at the start
Flailing in your wake
They're crying - It's not fair
It's not fair at all
 
Woh oh woh oh woh oh woh
You should be illegal
Yeah you're just too good
 
When I thought all hope was lost
I'd given up on all those
Star-crossed lover stories
You rescue me and I'll rescue you right back
Seemed like that was only in the movies
Then the world turned aound and around
But we were never on the same ground
Then there you were standing right in front of me
Didn't take me long to see
 
Woh oh woh oh woh oh woh
You should be illegal
Yeah you're just too good
 
When I look into your eyes
Nobody should get this high
You're a problem to be solved
The government should get involved
It's not OK It isn't right
Someone call the FBI
 
You should be illegal
 
 
 
 
Just Like Bob Said
 
Friday night when my work is done
I play my guitar and I sing my song
Just like Bob said - Just like that bird
Singing just for you
 
As long as the stars are shining in the sky
As long as the light is reaching into your eyes
Just like Bob said - Just like that bird
Singing just for you
 
There's a rainbow in the sky
Tears are in your eyes
It's gonna take a lot of time
But I know you'll be alright
 
Well I heard there used to be
A whole lot of shaking going on
The rock n rollin life wasn't meant for me
But I still sing my song
 
There's a rainbow in the sky
Tears are in your eyes
It's gonna take a lot of time
But I know you'll be alright
 
Friday night when my work is done
I play my guitar and I sing my song
Just like Bob said - Just like that bird
Singing just for you
 
 
 
Volcano
 
Volcano
Fire in the ground
When she’s gonna blow
You don’t wanna be around
Volcano
 
You ain't gonna stop her
When the lava starts to flow
She's breaking new ground
Everywhere she goes
 
VOLCANO
 
No gelignite No gasoline
The crazy fire of teenage dreams
She won’t ever let you know
VOLCANO
 
You shouldn’t even try
You’ll never break her stride
She’s gonna leave you in the gutter
As she walks on by
 
No gelignite No Gasoline
The crazy fire of teenage dreams
She won’t ever let you know
VOLCANO
 
Yeah you shouldn’t even try
You'll only make yourself go blind
You're gonna cry cry cry
You'll be dead inside
As she walks on by
 
 
 
 
Sunrise Lovers
 
I wanna hold you in my arms
And tell you that I love you
I wanna dance the night away
Til the sunrise comes to say
It's good to see you both again
You're a pair of fools - crazy fools
I like the way you do what you do
Long may it continue
 
Sunrise lovers
So many songs to sing together
Just starting out on the road
Where it goes - no one knows
 
It won't all be wine and roses
It can't all be silky smooth
You're gonna hit some hard hard times
You might not make it through
 
Sunrise lovers
You know you only have this moment
So look her in the eye
Know that it is now or nothing
Now or nothing
 
Sunrise lovers
 
Now I hold you in my arms
I tell you that I love you
Though we drive each other crazy sometimes
I couldn't live without you
 
Sunrise lovers
I guess we only have this moment
So I look you in the eye
I know that it is now or nothing
Now or nothing
 
Sunrise lovers
 
 
 
 
I Don't Give a Damn About You
 
You know I walk this world all alone
I'm the king on my lonesome throne
It's not that I don't care - I surely do
But I don't give a damn about you
 
I went outside to watch the flowers grow
Let a little light into my darkened soul
It's not that I don't care - I surely do
But I don't give a damn about you
 
I've been to hell
I didn't like it much
Not a place I wanna go again
We sold the lies we lost the trust
It's all gone down the drain
 
A lot of people talking
Not saying very much
Empty vessels and all that
Flimsy reputations
Dirty little deals
A lot of filthy secrets to conceal
 
It's not that I don't care - I surely do
But I don't give a damn about you
 
I don't give a damn
Two hoots or a fig
No need for apologies
It's just the way it is
I'm casually indifferent - Insouciant
I really have no interest
In the outcome of it all
 
You know I cried too many tears for you
If I could I'd take em back
But all the bones are broken
We're too far down the tracks
 
It's not that I don't care - I surely do
But I don't give a damn about you
 
Yeah I walk this world all alone
I'm the king on my lonesome throne
It's not that I don't care - I surely do
But I don't give a damn about you
 
 
 
Snowflakes and Streetlights
 
Snowflakes and streetlights
Remind me of a magic night
That I spent with you
It was a magic night
Such a magic night
With snowflakes and streetlights
 
And I will not apologize
Not for everything
It would take too long
I know when I was wrong
But I don't want to think about all the fights
I just want to think about
Snowflakes and streetlights
 
Yeah I don't want to think about all the fights
I just want to think about
Snowflakes and streetlights
 
Snowflakes and streetlights
 
 
 
Just to Be
 
The clouds are low today
And just like yesterday
I don't see any answers in the sky
If you look carefully at the running feet
They're not asking why
 
Just to be
Nothing more than be
Oh yeah
Just to be
Nothing more than be
Oh yeah
 
And when the earth shakes
And the mountains break
It all comes crashing down
When the waters rise
Under darkened skies
You won't be around
 
Just to be
Nothing more than be
Oh yeah
Just to be
Nothing more than be
Oh yeah
 
The clouds are low today
The clouds are low today
The clouds are low today
 
Just to be
Nothing more than be
Oh yeah
Just to be
Nothing more than be
Oh yeah
 
 
 
 
Some Kind of Beautiful
 
The genie is out of the bottle now
There's no going back
The loons are all telling their truths
And it's some kind of beautiful
Some kind of beautiful
 
Whatever you've got to say
You can try and amplify
And when it doesn't catch on
Your thing - your song
Do you think you can fight
To prove that you're right
Really
 
Some kind of beautiful
 
Whatever you've got to say
 
Some kind of beautiful
 
The genie is out of the bottle now
There's no going back
The loons are all telling their truths
And it's some kind of beautiful
Some kind of beautiful
 
And the last of those crazy self-destructive minstrels
Fades away
 
 
 
 
Cherry Blossom
 
Cherry Blossom Cherry Blossom Cherry Blossom
 
How do you
Always make yourself brand new
Every year when springtime comes around
The sun comes out
A warm breeze blows
You step outside in your brand new clothes
 
It's a beautiful sight
Such a beautiful sight
 
Every time that I see you
I'm a soul in awe
I say a prayer for everyone
Who will never see you again
 
 
 
 
Life Is Short and Love Is Long
 
Life is short and love is long
Life is short and love is long
 
Life is short and love is long
When you sing your country song
Do you feel warm and strong
Do you feel like you belong
When you sing your country song
 
The sun is going down
Your head is spinning round
Worrying about the things
That you can’t change
 
All the lies and the loss
The love and the cost
The madness in every footstep that you take
 
Thin ice
You know how easily it could break
 
It’s a vicious world and you’ve been played
While you were messing around
There was money being made
And the money don’t care
And it doesn’t talk
It whispers and it swears
 
There’s not a lot of room
For dreamers anymore
You’ll be taken out the back
And you’ll be gone
 
Blind eyes are turning
They see no wrong
 
And life is short and love is long
 
Life is short and love is long
Life is short and love is long
 
Life is short and love is long
When you sing your country song
Do you feel like you belong
Do you feel warm and strong
When you sing your country song
 
The sun is going down
Your head is spinning round
Worrying about the things
That you can’t change
 
 
 
You Know Best
 
You know best
You know what’s good for you
Ain’t no one telling you
 
Ain’t no one telling you
What to do
No one ever could
 
Though they tried
And they tried
To fill your head full of lies
But you never let em touch the sides
 
Shadowy figures pulling the strings
Doing all kinds of things
 
I bet they think they’re clever
 
You know that wind
That old wind
It could change on you
 
 
 
 
Melancholy Lowlife
 
Melancholy lowlife
Melancholy lowlife
That’s what you are
You didn’t come very far
 
Genetically programmed
Genetically programmed
To be such a fool
There’s no changing you
 
La la la
La la la
 
To be such a fool
There’s no changing you
 
And in between the seconds and the moments
The backdrop melts away
And you’re standing there on an empty stage
The audience has all gone home
And you’re left alone
With that hole in your soul
 
And everybody played their part
Taking turns to drive a stake right through your heart
They just wanna watch you burn
They hate to see you learn
 
La la la
La la la
 
They just wanna watch you crash and burn
They hate to see you learn
 
Melancholy lowlife
 
 
 
 
Be Lucky
 
Every time I’ve been a fool
Every time I bent the rules
Everyone I ever hurt
Everyone I ever used
I’m sorry
 
There’s a hole in my head
Where my brain used to be
Grown tired of thinking
Reckon what will be will be
Got nothing to prove to nobody anymore
Gonna pour myself a strong one
Then pour myself some more
 
Be good
Be lucky
 
A lot of people making hay
A lot of other people looking the other way
They’re gonna get their piece of that old pie
But a lot of people are gonna die
And that ain’t good
That ain’t good
 
No matter how you twist it
That ain’t good
 
Be good
Be lucky
