Chords:A-G-Bm
Var: D
Chorus:D-Em-G-D

I nearly cried
When you lied
You caught me
Unaware
The look in your eyes
Of complete surprise
It won't fool me
Again
Never again

I can't make love to you anymore
I can't make love to you anymore
I can't make it with you no more
I can't make love to you anymore

Can't you see
What it is
That you're doing
To me
It's plain to see
It's too late to choose
Between him
Or me
Can't you see


MOBILE SHACK

Chord: C-F
Var: G

I was born in my mother's bed
In a downstairs room
12 melville road
In birmingham
I was shocked to see the novelty
Of a litlle old fat bald thing
It was my old man

"i was born in the back
Of a mobile shack
And my father said to me son
I'm gonna call you james"

Working in a shop
Is a dead end job
I left after eight weeks
It was just as well
'Cause coming up behind me
Like a high speed train
Was the new york city new wave
Verlaine hell

"i was born in the back
Of a mobile shack
And my mother said to me son
Play guitar"

Now i've got it easy
Doing the things that i always wanted
But it's not enough
I'm gonna shoot out of this decade
In a spaceship
Failing that
A hippy bus

Chords: D-A7?-Bm-A

If i want it
I will take it
If i need it
Then it's mine
I will live it
I will die for it
Have no expression for remorse

I don't want to
Be a party to
All this evil
You're putting out
I don't want you
I don't even like you
But you're useful
So you can stay
But just for a while
Until it's time
It's time
To get myself on the road

Maybe i'll go see
An old friend
Who i haven't been with
For many years
We used to write songs
Had our own band
He didn't like it much
So he left
But i'm still here
And it's time
It's time
To take a look at myself
It's time
It's time
To jump right down off the shelf
To get dusted
To get even
Even more

I look at you now with scorn
The cap that fits you is well worn
You are no beauty
You ain't got no style
You got nothing
Worthwhile


BUDGIE JACKET

When i was a
A little boy
An old man he touched me
He thought that i was
A little girl
Because i looked so pretty
Looked so pretty

He led me into
His little house
And put his hand inside my shirt
I backed away some
Thought i should go, no
I stuck around for my reward
(forthcoming hoard)

Chords: D-G

CARTOON SKY

You were light in a tunnel
You were my plane up to the sky
You were round like a bubble
You were strung slightly too high
If you stop listen don't say anything
Then you'll know you can be sure of one thing
Take your time then you can be anything
Take your time take your time

Swing around to the right now
I want to see your profile
You said when are we going
I said we'll be there in a while
Don't you know that when i need you
I always try to stall
Why do you pretend you don't notice at all
Your feeble attempts at detachment
Are so low
I shouldn't care at all

You say how come i still want you
I don't know the reason why
Draw your own conclusions
Draw a cartoon of the sky
If you stop listen don't say anything
Then you'll know you can be sure of one thing
Take your time then you can be anything
Take your time - take your time


NEW DAY DAWNING

There are some things that i should say
Before i go
And there are some things
That you should know
I've walked a razor's edge all my life
Until i fell
Onto the point
The point of a knife
And i said it's good morning
There's a new day dawning
Good morning to you

I've spent my life inside of a cell
With no doors
Just four walls
Like living in hell
I've chickened out of things in the past
But now i know
When death calls
I'll be ready to go
And i said it's good morning
There's a new day dawning
Good morning to you
To you
It's for you
Join the grand parade
And celebrate this new day
Good morning to you
To you
It's for you
Walk the path i've laid
Into this new decade
Follow me
Into the nineties

I want to blend right into the walls
Of the world
Don't want to be seen
Just want to be heard
I've figured out a way to exist
With the past
Just ignore
What's gone before
Don't turn your back
Today's a moment that won't last


DOWN AN AUGUST PATH

Waiting by a bridge
That leads you to a stone
That says your mother died
Your mother died
Kneeling by her cross
The words they come to life
You open up inside
And start to cry

Shadows that are falling
Are merely angels calling
Shadows in the evening
Say something's got to give
The way you live
This cloud of darkness it must lift

You can't be so sure
Assertiviness never got you anywhere
Not anywhere
So i say to you
Be honest and be loyal
See what faith can do
What faith can do

Shadows that are falling
Are merely angels calling
Shadows in the evening
Say something's got to give
The way you live
This cloud of darkness it must lift

You are on your own
You're father's never there
He leaves you all alone
You're on your own
So you come to town
You shelter behind stories
Of your own design
They're all in your mind
When you saw me coming
You always started running
Stones hurled from afar
They always reach their mark
They never miss
They always, always
Leave a scar

Down an august path
The light is fading trees are shading
You from view
I can't see you
When will you learn
That noone is against you
We're all on your side
Your tide will return

Shadows that are falling
Are merely angels calling
Shadows in the evening
Say something's got to give
The way you live
This cloud of darkness it must lift

NEVER LET YOU GO

Em - D
Em - G
D - Em - G
Bm - G - Em - D

I was like a fool
Messed around and i was cruel
I was cruel to you
I was lost until i found you
I was lost until you said
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
Out of my life
Out of my life
Let you out of my life

Take away the pain
Take away the ball and chain
Leave it in the rain
The pounding heart of the city neon
Hides the cries of lonely men
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
Out of my life
Out of my life
Let you out of my life

When you went way
I was relieved i must say
But that was yesterday
Now i'm lost and i can't find you
I'll never hear those words again
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
I'll never let you go
Out of my life
Out of my life
Let you out of my life


SHE DEALS IN CROSSES

To you it seemed so simple
Yours was just another life
When you left school
You became a mother and a wife
Hey sister
Hey sister
Hey sister
What are you doing with yourself

I believe life's preordained
As such we haven't got a say
And noone dies for nothing
Not in my street anyway
Hey sister
Hey sister
Hey sister
What are you doing with your life


GET OUT OF MY MIRROR

I know
Honestly
What's wrong
With you and me
There's no space
We can't breathe
Get out of my mirror
So i can see

When it comes
To push and shove
Your hand is bare
I wear the glove
At this point
You might disagree
Get out of my mirror
So i can see

There's rows of spotlights shining on me
Turn them off don't invade my privacy
Turn a stone into sand and watch it bleed

I liked
How it used to be
There was no strain
On you or me
We'd come and go
As we pleased
Get out of my mirror
So i can see
