    Well c’mon darlin’

    ‘Cause we’re the all time winners
    In the all time loser’s game
    Yea we’re the all time winners
    And here we go again

    The king & queen of America…

    Yea it’s the king of nothing
    And the queen of rage
    With a pile of confusion
    Upon a glittering stage

    You know we never did anything
    So let’s play it loud

    All the way up to the stars
    And all of them aliens
    Are gonna find out
    Who we are –

    We’re talkin’ ’bout the
    King & queen of America

    (My My) Baby's Gonna Cry

    Do you feel sorry lover?
    Do you feel blue?
    What reason did you have
    To be untrue?
    Now you could be so good
    But you have to be so bad
    When you could make me
    Happy lover
    You make me sad.

    Now there’s a cool breeze blowin’
    Blowin’ out the flame
    That used to burn inside me
    At the mention of your name,
    Now there’s a cool breeze blowin’
    Blowin’ down the track –
    That’s where I’m goin’
    And I’m never comin’ back…

    My my – baby’s gonna cry
    My my – baby’s gonna cry
    My my – baby’s gonna cry
    Tonight – oh yea…

    Now there’s nothing
    Comes from nothing
    That’s what they always say
    Didn’t mama tell ya
    That’s the price you have to pay?
    Now you can’t have
    Your piece of cake
    And eat the sweet thing too
    But that kind of understanding
    Isn’t good enough for you
    My my – baby’s gonna cry

    Don't Ask Me Why

    Miracle of miracles
    Look what the night dragged in –
    It’s a pocket full of misery
    And trouble on the wind
    You spoiled the best years
    Of your life
    You took them all in vain
    Now you think that you’re forgiven
    But you can’t be born again

    And you say
    Why?
    You say why?
    You say why?
    Don’t ask me why –

    I don’t love you anymore
    I don’t think I ever did
    And if you ever had
    Any kind of love for me
    You kept it all so well hid…

    Promises sweet promises
    You kept them from your mind
    Like all the lost forgotten things
    You never seemed to find
    Like all the disappointments
    You displayed upon your shelf
    Now you’ve got no-one to turn to
    You’ve got no-one but yourself

    And you say
    Why?…

    Angel

    Underneath this canopy of snow
    Where fifty-seven winters
    Took their toll
    Where did you go?

    And I believed in you
    I believed in you
    Like Elvis Presley
    Singing psalms on a Sunday
    (Where did you go?)

    Well she’s gone to meet her maker
    Back to where she came from
    Come to save her soul…
    Come to save her soul…
    Come to take her home
    ‘Cause it’s late and past
    Your bedtime
    Well past bedtime

    Angel
    My angel
    Fly over me
    Angel…

    She took her life
    Within her hands
    She took her life
    Within her own two hands
    And no-one can tell her
    What to do now

    And I believed in you
    I believed in you
    Like Elvis Presley
    Singin live from Las Vegas
    (Where did you go?)

    Well she’s gone to meet
    Her maker
    Back to where she came from
    Come to save her soul…

    Revival

    Well I passed you by this morning
    You were stumblin’ down the street
    And by the look upon your face
    I could tell you wasn’t
    Feeling too sweet –

    You dropped down to the bottom –
    That’s what you
    Gone and did –
    Livin’ in a bad dream
    Finally flipped your lid

    Well – Superman I’ve got
    News for you
    And every body else
    That’s listenin’ too
    There’s a new way out
    If yer ready to hear
    We’re gonna make it clear

    What we need is revival!
    Revival.

    Look at that girl
    She’s the saddest thing
    You’ve ever seen –
    Washed up and faded
    Like a dirty old pair of jeans

    She’s running round in circles
    But she don’t have a single friend –
    Looks like her own bitterness
    Has twisted her till the end

    Well – Mona Lisa look me in the eye
    And tell me when
    You’re gonna get satisfied
    I’m gonna spell it out
    Right in front of you
    This is what you have to do –

    Get ready for revival!
    Revival…
    R.E.V.I.V.A.L.
    It’s gonna lift you
    Right up
    From your prison cell
    Play it out loud
    Like a ringing bell
    You go
    R.E.V.I.V.A.L.

    You Hurt Me (And I Hate You)

    Well the sun came up this morning
    Like a burning red balloon
    It broke into my window
    And it slipped across the room
    It spread itself upon me
    Like the smell of sweet perfume
    I was sleeping like a baby

    I’m not a saviour
    I’m not a saint
    I’m not an angel
    I’m not that quaint

    Don’t need a preacher
    To be that wise
    Don’t need a teacher –
    I’ve got my eyes…

    You hurt me & I hate you
    You hurt me

    A history of bitterness
    You have left a blazing trail
    If you had been a hammer
    I’d be a broken nail
    You gave me nothing –
    Nothing but regrets
    Don’t think it’s over –
    It’s not over yet

    You hurt me & I hate you
    You hurt me…

    And everytime
    You try to fool yourself
    You’ve only got yourself
    To blame
    And every lie you ever
    Told yourself
    Will all come back to you
    One day

    They say there’s no hell on earth
    That’s like a woman scorned
    And if you have to face this hell
    You’ll wish you’d not been born
    And if you have to face this hell
    You’ll find me standing there
    In the shadows, in the corners
    At the foot of every stair

    Sylvia

    Sylvia is missing –
    Dark stars tattooed
    Across her face…
    Tiny bruises
    Black & blue
    The dedication on her arm
    Reads “LOVE & HATE”
    Yea yea

    Passing through the underground
    Sylvia is coming down
    The queen has lost her crown
    Today…

    She wants to fall
    Into a deep deep sleep
    So she can forget herself

    Run away to London
    Lipstick tainted
    Powder painted
    Perfume in her hair

    Run away to London
    A thousand cold caresses
    Couldn’t keep her there
    Yea yea

    She wants to fall
    Into a deep deep sleep
    So she can forget herself

    The finger prints
    Of strangers
    On the ugly bedroom floor
    Reveal the only traces
    Of what Sylvia was for

    How Long?

    It’s five o’clock
    In the afternoon
    Somebody’s playing
    A sixties tune on the radio

    A lazy wind tumbles
    Down the street
    It shakes the dust up
    With the summer heat
    Where the people go…

    In fancy town
    Where nothing’s real
    They don’t consider
    What you feel

    In fancy town
    It’s black & white
    They close their minds
    They say
    Wrong is right

    How long
    Will your love
    Hold on
    To stay strong enough

    In fancy town
    The attitude
    Could strip you bare
    Like frozen food

    A ship of fools
    In a crazy choir
    Is gonna take you home
    And light your fire

    In fancy town
    Where nothing’s real
    They don’t consider
    What you feel

    In fancy town
    It’s black & white
    They close their minds
    They say
    Wrong is right

    How long
    Will your love
    Hold on
    To stay strong enough

    A deck of cards
    In perfect black
    Like cold cement
    On the pavement cracks
    Where lovers steal
    And beg for time
    And doctors sign
    On the dotted line…

    When The Day Goes Down

    Well don’t you cry now –
    Don’t go drowning in your tears
    Haven’t you learnt anything
    After all these years?

    All God’s little children
    Are beautiful & pure
    And you’re as good
    As all of them
    Of this you can be sure

    And we are just the same
    Underneath the shadows
    Of the sun
    And we are just the same
    No more no less than anyone

    All the people
    Of this lonely world
    Have got some pain inside
    Don’t go thinking
    You’re the only one
    Who ever broke right down
    And cried

    That’s when the rain comes down
    That’s when the rain comes down

    And this is for the broken dreamers
    This is for vacant souls
    This is for the hopeless losers
    This is for the hopeless fools
    And the burnt out
    And the useless
    And the lonely & the weak
    And the lost & the degraded
    & the too dumb to speak

    And the day goes down
    That’s when the day
    Goes down

    Precious

    Never had a lot of spending money
    Never had a lot of change to spare
    But darling do you think I’m worried
    Little dollar, do you think I care

    There’s a whole lot of things in this precious world
    that a whole lot money can’t buy
    Can’t get it from your pocket books
    and I’m going to tell you why

    Because it’s precious
    Your’s love is precious, child
    Your’s love is precious, child

    All the different kinds of teas in China
    All the shiny little gems so rare
    Gold and silver and sparkling diamonds
    Won’t ever with your love compare

    Take your prayers and your troubles
    and send them all away
    Through them back where they all belong
    Forget about them for a day

    Because it’s precious
    Your’s love is precious, child
    Your’s love is precious, child

    A little bit of understanding is going
    to change your heart and soul
    It’s gonna heal your broken spirit
    So make love your special goal

    Because it’s precious
    Your’s love is precious, child
    Your’s love is precious, child
    Your’s love is precious, child

    See No Evil

    See no evil

    You don’t know what it’s like
    To see things the way I do
    So take a little piece of time
    And step into my dancing shoes

    Cuz it’s just a cruel existence
    Yeah it’s a vicious place
    Everybody’s crowding in
    They’ve got to take that space

    If you wanna get up
    You better cool down

    They’re gonna pump up some more action
    They’re gonna blast out another round
    They’re gonna move in with the cameras
    To catch another kid gone down

    If you wanna get up
    You better cool down

    Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me (originally by The Smiths)

    Last night I dreamt
    That somebody loved me
    No hope, no harm
    Just another false alarm

    Last night I felt
    Real arms around me
    No hope, no harm
    Just another false alarm

    So, tell me how long
    Before the last one?
    And tell me how long
    Before the right one?

    The story is old – I know
    But it goes on
    The story is old – I know
    But it goes on

    Oh, goes on
    And on
    Oh, goes on
    And on
