Not ashamed of who I am Not afraid to see the light I’ll take the consequence of staying alive Head’s not buried in the sand I’m not a slave to who I was Still driven by desire I’ll stay and wait Until I find a shelter Are all these promises enough Everything I’ve set in stone These images of life Of lovers and friends now gone All this time, this dead time I feel closer to it Now that it’s gone I’ll stay and wait And still no shelter, no shelter It’s been a tough time Such a tough time Everything’s changed Now that I know My life’s a mission It’s been a tough time And it’s tough for life I feel closer, then it’s gone I’ll stay and wait Out of the shelter

All life’s troubles They’ve taken their toll on you now Feel the pressure to work something out Darling it takes some effort You do what you can to survive You got to make decisions, everyone does Tell me, why are you always in bed What’s going on in your head sister Sit on the porch and cry While you’re waiting for life to work out It’s so easy to plan things that won’t happen Best just to try and get by Like everyone does So much pity So sorry for yourself now Angry at all these people bringing you down Tell me, cant you see what you’ve done wrong Why must you blame for so long sister Sit on the porch and cry While you’re waiting for life to work out It’s so easy to plan things that won’t happen Best just to try and get by Like everyone does Tell me, why must it be like before Come let us try once more sister Let’s sit on the porch and try While we’re waiting for life to work out It’s so easy to fall back into old patterns Maybe that’s how we get by Like everyone does

Marcela 04:07
Marcela goes with anyone Who makes her feel she’s pretty She gets her kicks in Camden Town But she don’t like the city She says that time goes slow That’s why she feels so Don’t have to listen very hard You’ll hear the scars You’ll hear the scars Time cuts, time makes no sound She’s always down for the count Out and about town Pale August moon She looks so ready for it Takes off her shoes New pair she’s hardly walked in You know that time stands still That’s how tonight feels And if you listen hard You’ll hear the stars You’ll hear stars They shout They make a sound That’s why She’s always around Out and about town Marcela She’s spinning round She won’t go down For the count Out and about town

Don't Knock on my Door (free) 03:35
She is hard done by Her hair’s wet, her blouse dirty And she longs to be back in his arms For the last hour She’s been talking and sobbing Screaming, walking away It’s no good though, he won’t listen Don’t come around here Don’t knock on my door no more Don’t you be trying to find a cure I ain’t gonna help you Ain’t gonna help Don’t come around here Don’t knock on my door no more Don’t you be trying to find me Ain’t gonna help you Ain’t gonna help, you hear me She used to go to parties Every party used to be for her She was so pretty But now, look at her now She’ll work it out She’ll sober up, he’ll see It will be different, she’s so close now Why must he be so mean Don’t come around here Don’t knock on my door no more Don’t you be trying to find a cure I ain't gonna help you, ain't gonna help Don’t come around here Dont knock on my door no more Don’t you be trying to find me Ain’t gonna help you Ain’t gonna help, you hear me She’s getting better, besides It’s no big deal, come on Let’s just go inside He makes it better Don’t come around here Dont knock on my door no more Don’t you be trying to find me Ain’t gonna help you Ain’t gonna help, you hear me

Fatherland 05:20
Born to die an honest son Not to worry when the day is done Close your eyes and pray That you will wake up A better man this time What am I missing? Oh so many things The scent of orange On a salty western wind A snowy mountain and the desert sand A rolling thunder across the fatherland Nothing like it Nothing like the real thing Nothing like it, no Nothing like the real thing Pay to leave and close the door Don’t remember where I stayed before Was it here or was it someplace better I don’t know no more I could be tripping but my tie is on I must be dreaming cause I feel So wrong and dry Oh please forgive me Didn’t mean to hurt or offend See I thought I knew you From the fatherland Nothing like it Nothing like the real thing Nothing like it, no Nothing like the real thing It’s real, it’s real Nothing like it Nothing like the real thing Nothing like it, no Nothing like the real thing
6.
Bells 02:30
Give it to me like it is Selfish and free as it is Holding red flowers Waiting for summer to end Reckless life’s leaving a stain Punish me love don’t forgive Trigger my heart to receive Your words of loneliness Echoing mine I believe Were just fools trying to breathe Reach for me now, say the words Peace for us now in the world Winter is coming The flowers are fading, farewell And I will remember those bells
7.
On Our Way 02:59
Hold on very tight to me We might be in for stormy weather Nothing’s on our mind, just breathe The coast is not so far away now There’s no haste We’ll get there It’s our way to be free This is a narrow path we tread A narrow path that’s seldom chosen And now that we know where it began I wonder where’s our destination But I’ll bet we’ll get there And on the way we’ll see What’s lost now Will be found again someday What’s lost now Will be found again someday What’s lost now will be found again What’s lost now will be found again Lost and will be found again someday
8.
Fay 05:02
No alarm can get in my head today No such sound can stick in my head today I’ve been hunting for lines Out on the range again Biding my time, tugging these chains for change And no bad luck Can come between me and Fay Can come between me and tell your friends don’t wait They wont understand no Stop yourself too late It’s better to let it grow This ground is frail Were standing in borrowed shoes I’m feeling you, feeling you Were made to forget now And before first light I know you will fade away Before my eyes will get used to the sun again I’ve been reaching for hearts Falling apart these days And guessing my crimes Looking for signs to say That it’s not your fault But I wish you were mine to save I wish you were mine Fay Tell your friends don’t wait They wont understand no Stop yourself too late It’s better to let it grow This ground is frail Were standing in light exhumed I’m feeling you, feeling you Don’t ever forget now
9.
I see us walking down that road One that leads back to the cold You’ve let me down again How can it be The ways of love have taken hold Bag of memories I’ve sold To pay to be with you And now you give it away And I’m on my own again That’s ok I got friends And they Come and then stay Come and then stay Come and then stay with me With me Could be you needed time to grow Or be it something I don’t know But that don’t matter now You see, I’m moving away And now it’s so safe to say You’re no longer my girl My girl I’ll be ok I’ll be ok I’ll be ok with time With time And so goes the end of the affair
10.
Slowly 03:16
Living a lie Ain’t no use to pretend That everything’s right When the walls are caving in All around you Need to decide And you need to be quick cause There isn’t much time Before the shades go down On this final play You will have your say Ain’t gonna change no way I’m taking it slowly Don’t really care If I’m lonely with the pain But no lies, no pretend Time to go on with the show Don’t you ask why It’s better you don’t know What’s the point of it all I wait for the answers to come I’m nobody’s Sun So I might as well go on It’s a sad affair If you stop to care Ain’t gonna change no way I’m taking it slowly I don’t really care If I’m lonely with the pain But no lies, no pretend Ain’t gonna change no way I’m taking it slowly I’d rather be sad than live Only to pretend To go fast till the end Ain’t gonna change no way I’m taking it slowly I don’t really care If I’m lonely with the pain But no lies, no pretend
11.
Still Fading 05:06
You pledge allegiance to your face A member of a club with one condition You could be anybody else Leaving signatures, but just on paper Say what you say, got no problem Do what you want, it’s all right But don’t tell me you’ve got light There’s no light here Still fading, that’s your fate Still fading, still fading There’s hardly ever a surprise The game is easy and the rules are simple You give them anything they want They give you money, put you in the paper Play how you play, got no issues Do what you like, it’s your right But don’t tell me you’re all right That’s a lie girl Still fading, that’s your fate Still fading, still fading Just wait and see They’ll turn their backs on you You’ve got enemies now Time’s your enemy Still fading, still fading Don’t be surprised When they’ll point their guns at you There will be no use for you soon There will be no use for you Ain’t no use Your time is gonna come, it might be now Still fading, fading fast
