Track Name: SMOKING WOMAN
she said to me that she likes the chase
that there's no other feeling quite like the blood in your veins
racing down the highway, switching up lanes
that drive of hers is enough to make me insane

i'm not sure what she means by the thrill of the chase
I don't care as long as she's in my space
standing right beside her I don't feel out of place
when she smiles she'll make me make a mistake

cus she's a smoking woman, yeah
smoking woman, yeah
she leaves me without a care
she's a smoking woman, yeah

she whispered to me i'm like hot ash, burning coal
you wanna be my friend and show me what you know?
I said I don't know much, my brains kind of slow
then she laughed, oh baby, what a blow

then we drifted apart thrown away a nice romance
kinda wished kinda thought I stood a chance
xyz hey kid, please check your pants
ce la vi, move on boy, go and dance

still she's one smoking woman, yeah
smoking woman, yeah
she leaves me without a care
she's a smoking woman, yeah
Track Name: ROCKIN' ROMANCE
i'm living my life the way you told me to,
i'm being a good boy, i'm staying in school
sometimes it's fun when you pick your moments
staying up late with that rockin' romance
oh, oh

i'm being a nice guy, i'm treating her right
i'm kind to my friends when they go out at night
still i'm allowed those crazy moments
when I partake in that rockin' romance
oh, oh

baby baby, I can't last much longer
sitting waiting for the chance to run
maybe maybe, with your rockin' romance
I will stay put, have me a little fun

i'll be stuck in a day job if I play it right,
asleep on my feet from nine till five
my days seem numbered when I don't have a chance
except when I play with that rockin' romance
oh, oh

what am I to do but get out of town
everybody here is just getting me down
won't you come with, babe, we can dance?
my one true and only rockin' romance
oh,
oh,

baby baby, I can't last much longer
sitting waiting for the chance to run
maybe maybe, with your rockin' romance
I will stay put, have me a little fun
Track Name: FADING HEART
it's the waning interest
it's the subtle distress
it's the dangerous notion
that nothing can go wrong
it's something to look out for
cus it's just around the corner
and before you know what
love is gone

so please don't let it be that
fading heart
coming along my way
no please don't let it be that
fading heart
coming along my way

it's the touch of clinging
it's the clutch that's slipping
with time you'll hold hands
or maybe not
but don't be frightened
these things tend to happen
all to hope for
is a smile

but please don't let it be that
fading heart
coming along my way
no please don't let it be that
fading heart
coming along my way
Track Name: BAHAMA BABY
when i'm getting cold feet
you know I can't lose
oh don't mind me
not fooling with you
nothing but lonely
sitting through life
but please don't mind me
just keep walking on by

oh bahama baby,
sipping on your low down ways
oh call me a coward,
say what you need to say
it's too late
to stay
go home

it's always the same play
with people like you
tempting my poor fate
making me lose
yeah, you're pretty
with eyes so grey
but please don't mind me
i'll just be on my way

oh bahama baby,
sipping on your low down ways,
oh call me a coward,
say what you need to say
it's too late
to stay
go home

and stay home
please go home
and stay home
Track Name: LOST BOY
mister, it's time to grow up
stand up straight, learn to tie them shoes
mister, it's time to show up
where have you been? the worlds been missing you

you're just a lost boy
acting like you own the world
you're a lost boy
shut up and do as you're told

sister, it's time to wake up
paint your lips and tidy up your hair
sister, it's time to be tough
for girls like you, the world doesn't care

you're just a lost boy
acting like you won the world
you're a lost boy
shut up and do as you're told
Track Name: SWEETDREAM'S SWEETHEART GIRL
head down on my pillow, not seeing clearly
hoping that she will run into me
be patient for the call to come, dear
saying that my love is coming home

oh, i've been missing
you know, i've been thinking of

my oh my, my sweetdream's sweetheart girl
my oh my, my sweetdream's sweetheart girl
my oh my, my sweetdream's sweetheart girl
my oh my, my baby

some say i'm living in a fantasy
chasing all these cars just out of reach
maybe I can't help it and stop you from coming home
but then i'd end up drinking all alone

oh, i've been missing
you know, i've been thinking of

my oh my, my sweetdream's sweetheart girl
my oh my, my sweetdream's sweetheart girl
my oh my, my sweetdream's sweetheart girl
my oh my, my baby (darling)
Track Name: (CUS) YOU'RE IN LOVE
wilted praying that she'll love you ever more
eating less and less by the hour
only if she comes back to your door
will you shed your tears like a flower
maybe it's because you don't love yourself
that you can't seem to rise
i'm not saying I have answers for your ills
just seems like you're wasting your time

cus you're in love
love
love
love

I am begging you to come along, my friend
come back to your bright soul
though it's almost as this night will never end
your life has yet to be full
liken yourself to a summers rain
overcast a greyish red
don't believe that the sun will never show
all that is in your cloudy head

cus you're in love
love
love
love
