Hey Romeo 04:53
Hey Romeo What gives you that glow On the down low Nowhere to go from here but down Up, up, up like a fucking clown You reap what you sow Hey Romeo Hey Romeo Beware the undertow Of love at first hello No, don’t let go of the hand you hold Being cool is just playing at being cold Love is vertigo She comes then you go Hey Romeo I drop the needle down on the record I love the crackle before the song begins Slow dancing with Juliet and I transcend I lift the arm, go back and play the song again and again And the song is “Hey, Romeo”, take your solo Hey Romeo Theres a fire down below Sometimes yes means no Crawl out your window, Juliet Got a brand new tattoo Says “I would die for you” Hey Romeo I drop the needle down on the record I love the crackle before the song begins Slow dancing with Juliet and I transcend I lift the arm, go back and play the song again and again She writes on the mirror in lipstick, XO XO Hey Romeo What gives you that glow On the down low Nowhere to go from here but down Up, up, up like a fucking clown You reap what you sow Hey Romeo Hey Romeo

Faith Healer 03:15
Check the mic, dim the house lights Welcome to the greatest show on earth In this corner fear, and in this corner your self worth Expect a miracle tonight Make a believer out of you Thin line sometimes Between what is false and what is true My eyes roll back into my head I feel the presence of a soul stealer Allow me to introduce myself, I’m the Faith Healer The Faith Healer Tonight we will change the past How’s that? no tricks, no sleight of hand Step one forgive yourself Step two everyone else, Put yourself under my command Your house of cards will soon crumble Under it’s own weight Gonna need a whole lot of faith in yourself Faith in faith Now comes the laying on of hands Man, I can really feel her Her heart beating in time with mine, have mercy I’m the Faith Healer The Faith Healer You say you’re not a believer? I got no problem with that Yeah, I got a lot of favors owed me from both sides Just drop a few bills into my hat I need this as much as you do, believe me Let me put out a few feelers Lotta competition these days, out there for a Faith Healer Faith Healer Dark circles under her eyes, She might need a little concealer Been out all night long, with the Faith Healer The Faith Healer Faith Healer

Abilene 04:10
Many hours west of Memphis In the city of the plains Lives a girl with wide open spaces in her eyes, and cold hard rains No ocean, just the wind in waves Across the fields of green After the city of her raising her mother named her Abilene… I was young , my girlfriend pregnant We were scared and she disappeared I guess I put it out of my memories, all these years Around the world I have travelled Many faces I have seen But one look in her eyes, I knew she was mine My daughter Abilene… I wasn’t there to love her, protect her and guide Fatherless children have a hard time Let the sun on her face be the touch of my hand Faith is evidence of things unseen Abilene...

I dreamed last night of Muscle Shoals I dreamed last night of Muscle Shoals I married Ophelia down by the river What'd I know about love, nothing at all But, oh, what a feeling I loved her body and soul Even if love was walking on coals I dreamed last night of Muscle Shoals I dreamed last night of Muscle Shoals We had a shotgun wedding Her daddy said he'd shoot me if I ran away I ended up in California Home to a lot of lost souls They flooded over the Indian burial grounds At night you can hear the spirits sing It's a mournful sound I woke up this morning And my front door was shot full of holes They flooded over the Indian burial grounds At night you can hear the spirits sing It's a mournful sound I dreamed last night of Muscle Shoals I dreamed last night of Muscle Shoals

Hello I'm Johnny Cash Flashback Caddyshack My doctor’s a quack I knew what I was taking wasn't no tic tac Not enuff love in the world for the love I lack I sold my soul for a black Cadillac A black Cadillac I'm the man in black I'm way off track Pickup with a gun rack I want you back No one gives you nothin’ doesn't want something back I'll do whatever it takes to win you back In the backseat of my black Cadillac My black Cadillac In my soul, it's like there's two freight trains colliding About to have a head-on crash After the show I break into my stash In the ring of fire, everything turns to ash I'm cleaning up my act No Jack Kerouac Have I lost, I lost my knack Don't wanna turn into a hack Still somehow the light slips thru the cracks LA to Vegas in 4 hours flat Marry you in a drive through in my black Cadillac Yeah, my black Cadillac I need to make amends, amen, Make it up to you somehow I wasn't there for you but I loved you then and I love you now Yeah, my black Cadillac My black Cadillac My black Cadillac My black Cadillac

Blackout 03:24
I blackout, flatline Without you, 6 is 9 I’m out until the stars align Throughout the night We shout, yeah, we fight You pull out every slight We fall from a great height You said, “leap and the net will appear” I hope so, ‘coz, my landing place isn’t clear I blackout, flatline Without you, 6 is 9 My self doubt and red wine I'm out until the stars align

Juliet don't cross the river Nothing good can come from it Even if your heart's beating like a drum kit Romeo can't deliver Juliet don't cross the river From Canal Street to Algiers Short ferry ride Might as well be the dark side of the moon Yeah the water is wide Has someone come between us, Is everything gonna be OK But you just turn your face away Juliet don't cross the river Nothing good can come from it Even if your heart's beating like a drum kit Romeo can't deliver Juliet don't cross the river Juliet I love you Haven't I told you Didn't I hold you close to me But now someone's come between us Is everything gonna be OK You just turn your face away Oh, yeah Someone said they saw Romeo and Juliet out walking on the levee Yeah, my heart is heavy I'll be in the second line trying to break loose your soul from mine Juliet don't cross the river Nothing good can come from it Even if your heart's beating like a drum kit Romeo can't deliver Juliet don't cross the river

Cheap Rings 03:54
There's warrants out on me Unlawful flight across state lines I'm on the run from debt collectors And ex-wives Here's to new beginnings To hope the hungry heart clings All I have now's my memories And a drawerful of cheap rings Cheap rings I sell used cars, don't get all high and mighty on me It's not your crib, man, it's your ride I wouldn't sell you a bad car, trust me, I cried when my father died A lot of glass masquerading as diamonds Why deny her a little bling On all ten of her fingers Cheap Rings Cheap Rings I can't exactly call this my hallelujah song More like a tear down your cheek nobody noticed Trying somehow to right a wrong My girl's got a tattoo on her thigh Says “abandon hope all who enter here” She knows she's got something precious Precious is whatever the heart holds dear She says “all men are liars” The truth hurts don't it, yeah, it stings But it's nothing a kiss can't make better A kiss and cheap rings Cheap Rings, yeah Cheap Rings

Watch your mouth Careful what you say You just might get your way My thoughts go south When I watch your mouth You lean down Put your mouth against mine A kiss is only the beginning Velvet soft and warm My head is spinning Hush now, hold your tongue Tonight we are young Watch your mouth Careful what you say You just might get your way My thoughts go south When I watch your mouth Put on some records Old school RnB Stone me like jelly roll Whisper in my ear Confession is good for the soul Don't talk, hold your tongue Tonight, we are young Watch your mouth Careful what you say You just might get your way My thoughts go south When I watch your mouth If you kept your mouth closed You'd get in a lot less trouble Sparks fly off of you I'd better be careful what I wish for Because all I wanna do Is watch your mouth Careful what you say You just might get your way My thoughts go south When I watch your mouth My thoughts go south When I watch your mouth

From high up on the bridge Crossing the Mississippi River You can see for miles around Strange wild beautiful city They bury their dead above the ground Their souls are free to wander Birds flew up over an open field Into a night much deeper And further than Mobile Into a night much deeper And further than Mobile I met a girl at Mardi Gras She wore feathers and a mask I don't think the name she told me was really hers, but I didn't ask I make the sign of the cross As before her I kneel And she takes me into a night much deeper and further than Mobile Into a night much deeper And further than Mobile Out over Lake Pontchartrain The moon is big and bright The sky is full of stars I feel closer to the light Just by entering the city of New Orleans We sign on to the deal That takes us into a night much deeper and further than Mobile Yeah, into a night much deeper And further than Mobile

Show's Over 03:05
Let me start at the beginning, man, 3 a.m. Beth Israel Emergency Room What did she take, sir? Hey, don't look at me She's the bride but I'm not the groom What a wedding party it was My little lower east side super nova Guess the show’s over I guess the show’s over Yeah, the show’s over now So, what's the point in going home now Yeah, this will pass or it won't I care too much, even if I pretend I don't I watch the sun come up through the windows of a bar called “The Four Leaf Clover" I guess the show’s over Yeah, the show’s over Yeah, the show’s over now Hey, in her wedding dress her back was bare Where there once were wings And if the light was right you could almost see them still fluttering Oh, fly away home out over The East River My Irish Rover Take a bow ‘coz The show’s over Yeah, the show’s over I guess the show’s over now
