Track Name: Fade to Black
Look outside your window
Tell me what you see
The broken man who can barely stand
In the moonlight is me

Yes I have been drinking
That's what the heartsick do
All the rum is almost done
And I'm still missing you

Save your pity for the poor
I won't beg you back
If I can't see you anymore
My life will fade to black

Look outside your window
Tell me love's a lie
I'll believe but I won't leave
I'll lay down and die

Save your pity for the poor
I won't beg you back
If I can't see you anymore
My life will fade to black
Track Name: I Don't Fear Jesus
I Don't Fear Jesus

I don't fear Jesus
Though I'm worse than most
I'll face the man with clean hands
Same for his Holy Ghost

I know I'm not loyal
And I often stray
That's why till now I take no vows
And have not to this day

A creature finds comfort
In a house kept warm
I left the fold for the cold
That's how I was born

The road is narrow
And few will enter in
Why waste time towing the line
When living's no sin
Track Name: I Can Never Blame You
How I wound up here
I can't honestly say
Things were looking so clear
Until they went the wrong way

First I got laid off
Then they took my home
Then I developed this cough
After I broke all my bones

And I can blame the heavy hand of fate
And I can blame the evil, heartless state
And I can blame the whole wide world it is true
But I can never blame you

I can shake my fist
At the powers that be
I can make a long list
Of those who have done wrong by me

I can bang on the door
Demanding God set things right
I can burn up the floor
Dance with the Devil all night

(chorus)

You stood beside me when even I would have run
You said you thought you could see a golden ray of sun

(chorus)
Track Name: Come For You
I will come for you
I will come for you

Do you feel my love is growing stronger?
Don't you keep my love waiting much longer

I will come for you
I will come for you

Do you feel the passions building higher?
Are your sense burning up like fire?

I will come for you
I will come for you

Can you see the colors quickly flashing
Deep inside the tidal waves are crashing

I will come for you
I will come for you
I will come for you
I will come for you
Track Name: In The Morning
Everything was certain
Everything was brand new
Everything was shining
For me and you, love
For me and you, love

Now I know the darkness
Now I know the lonely
Now I know the heartbreak
What's left for me, love?
What's left for me, love?

In the morning you were missing
I was looking everywhere
In the morning through the misty
I could find you nowhere
I could find you nowhere
Track Name: Be My Friend Tonight
We are young when days are long
Love is ours for a song
We grab everything life can provide

Age moves in and youth moves out
Casting all we know in doubt
It's funny how we act so surprised

Be my friend tonight, babe
Be my friend tonight

People have and people want
People fall for any stunt
Oh, the same old tricks receive reprise

Truth is relative we know
I am high when you are low
We mistake the fire for the light

Be my friend tonight, babe
Be my friend tonight

Be my friend tonight, babe
Be my friend tonight

Be my friend tonight, babe
Be my friend tonight
Track Name: Never Say Goodbye
Heard the newsman say the world is losing all control
But I've never felt so safe as when I'm in your hold
Bombs are blasting, cities falling, armies on the move
But I have a joyful feeling when I'm holding you

Oh I hope till the day I die
That you never say goodbye, goodbye

Heard the preacher say in heaven
Peace is what we find
Do we hear the cries of children
As we're killing time

But right now that doesn't matter
As I'm lost in bliss
I can block out all the chatter
When I taste your kiss

Oh I hope till the day I die
That you never say goodbye, goodbye

Oh I hope that you never say goodbye, goodbye
Track Name: Let's Get High
I hope you're having fun and getting high
I hope you're having fun and getting high
I hope you're having fun and getting high
I'm high too

I hope you have your music playing loud
Hoping that the neighbors come around
Hoping that the lover lost is found
She's so cute

Everybody in the world is frowning
Everybody needs to find a smile
Everybody in the world is drowning
Let's get high

I hope you're having fun and getting high
I hope you're having fun and getting high
I hope you're having fun and getting high
I'm high too

Everybody in the world is frowning
Everybody needs to find a smile
Everybody in the world is drowning
Let's get high
Let's get high
Let's get high
Track Name: The Last Christmas Song
This is the last Christmas song
No more are to come along
Yuletide is here and then it's gone
This is the last Christmas song

No peace ever comes to men
No matter how much it's said
Might as well save your breath
No peace ever comes to men

Silent Night, Holy Night are nothing
But another day for a sale
Everything Santa brings lies rusting
The wise don't believe in such tales

No savior ever was born
Who would not turn his face in scorn
When he sees the way his world is worn
No savior ever was born

So deck those halls with those boughs of holly
Put that shining star atop the tree
But don't forget that peace and love are folly
There is no light that lets the blind see

This is the last Christmas song
No more are to come along
Yuletide is here and then it's gone
This is the last Christmas song

This is the last Christmas song
This is the last Christmas song
This is the last Christmas song
Ho, ho, ho
Track Name: Too Late
You'd better run for cover
Things are breaking fast
What you held so dearly
Is slipping from your grasp

Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late

A city by the seashore
Built on mounds of sand
Crumbles down like castles
When tides reclaim the land

Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late

Yes, I loved my woman
But she did me wrong
I threw her by the wayside
I'm moving right along

Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late

Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late
