I've been running myself ragged all over this land Waiting for my day to come I get the boot more often than a helping hand Waiting for my day to come I just can't shut out the voice in the back of my mind That says there's something waiting on the other side I'm feeling half dead nearly half the time Waiting for my day to come ​ Well, my daddy said "Son, you gotta follow your dreams" But what if my race is run? One side of me says "push" and the other side screams "Isn't this supposed to be fun?" I feel like I'm living someone else's life And I really wanna know, who's living mine? I'm feeling half dead nearly half the time Just waiting for my day to come ​ When the Lord comes to me, says, "Rest your soul, Because boy, your work is done" I'll say "No offence Lord, but what do you know? I'm still waiting for my day to come" I sit here growing older, life passing me by Before it's even begun I can't stop myself telling myself lies Then just watching as they all come undone I can't shut out the voice in the back of my mind That says there's something waiting on the other side I'm feeling half dead nearly half the time Waiting for my day to come I'm still waiting for my day to come

I've been taking my time Trying to fix this heart of mine But lately I've been slipping through the cracks Because when I met you, you blew my mind And it was worse the second time Now all I see is everything that I lack I'd set this heart on fire for you To make a light to guide you through But you don't know what you do to me, or do you? So won't you take a chance baby, take a gamble Place your bets on me now? And I'll strike a match darling, light a candle To lead your way through the crowd But just don't put me out Maybe I'm crazy to feel this way To fall so fast and give it all away Because I'm guessing that you don't feel the same But when you told me you weren't happy with him I thought I saw a way to get in I hoped that you wanted me to ease your pain I'd set my soul aflame for you Does your torch burn for me too? No, you don't know what you do to me, oh do you? I ain't ready to let this dream go yet Because I'm scared of what would be left I know I don't mean much to you baby That don't mean I don't want you to save me tonight
3.
I can't seem to shake these lonesome blues Hovering round my head like a hangman's noose And the bottle is all dry, still I can't close my eyes Because I can't face the trouble in my mind Everything has lost its meaning now But I sleepwalk through my days anyhow 'til the sun descends and night time comes again I wait up for that call from my old friend the blues So I fix a drink and I light a cigarette But I ain't ready for the devil to take me yet Because every single time I face that long decline I know a woman is all it'd take to ease my mind
4.
Sometimes lying in bed I can hear a sound Echoing from somewhere high above this town Sometimes I take my car up and over the hill See the party lights flashing as the world lies still I hear the clinking of glasses, laughter in the air Hear guitars strumming but I can't get there I hear the pedal steel, I hear the mandolin But I'm on the outside, looking in If you want success you've gotta pay your dues I've paid so many, got no dues to lose If life's a journey, there are stingers in the road I'm spinning my wheels and spilling my load And all the folks I'm supposed to impress Are total pricks talking shit in fancy dress As the rich men waltz right through the door I'm outside smashing my head against the wall I get up and go to work each day Spend my time staring into cyberspace Where people all around me are living their lives I'm left behind, I'm paralysed Have you ever felt punished for dreaming too much? There's a sign here saying "look, but don't touch" Here I am again, like I've always been I'm on the outside, looking in

Everybody stared at Leigh As she walked from the scene With tears in her eyes The ambulance closed its doors Pulled away, the siren roared And, oh, the flashing blue lights What do you do when the dream dies? Ali didn't understand The letter shook in his hand He'd blown his last shot He went into his daughter's room To see if it was true And saw the empty cot What do you do when the dream dies? When life gets too hard You can hide your head in the stars To get a little relief But when the dream is gone How do you carry on? How do you find some peace?

Be True 02:48
I thought I'd been around I thought I'd seen it all That is until I met you Now every day I'm learning But one thing is for certain There's one thing I'll promise you Darling I'll always be true Now we're together, I want this forever I hope one day that you'll wear my ring Forget all the sad songs Leave them where they belong There's one song that I will sing I swear to you, as sure as the sky is blue I swear to you that darling, I'll always be true

Amanda Jane 04:10
I woke up last night from a dream that felt so real You were kissing my forehead and I was happy again But I'm awake now, oh I'm awake now, Amanda Jane Every single day feels just like the last I work and then come home alone Though I know you live so close But I'm too scared to pick up the phone Amanda Jane, and say: Come on over tonight I've got a bottle of wine Come on over tonight Because I miss you babe And I need you babe, Amanda Jane Do you remember that night Watching that cover band? I walked you across the dancefloor And you were holding my hand As I felt it then, I still feel it now, Amanda Jane
8.
It's so hard knowing where you are And knowing that tonight it ain't with me And it's so hard knowing what we have And knowing how good it could be But love don't come easy It seems love never comes easy No, love don't come easy But don't you see That you could make it easy for me? We've been stealing time wherever we can Since we both knew we were more than friends Since I tasted the sweet of your kiss All I want is to do it again For a while I really thought I was being punished for my sins For a while I really thought That I would never love again But when I saw the blue of your eyes Looking back into my own For the first time in a long time I felt like I wasn't alone
9.
All those times we travelled together All those times down that goddamn road I carried you, you carried me, my brother And Lord, we done lightened the load No one did it like us No one could do it like us Once we got going no one saw us for dust And no one did it like us All the backrooms and ballrooms we've been through We'd leave 'em begging for more I don't know if we'll see them again I don't know if they're even there anymore I've still got the gravel in my shoe And them songs still run around my head I don't know much 'bout nothing these days But I know our journey ain't over yet No one did it like us No one could do it like us And what once was polished Has now been left to rust But no one did it like us
10.
Seeing you smile your smile at me Was the best part of my day You always had a drink and a joke for me You could chase my blues away So when I heard the news that morning Brother, I could hardly breathe How could you take your smile from me? Brother, how could you leave? I watched you thrash them on the rugby field Then shake their hands at the end of the game And though some day this pain may heal Those memories will never fade The local bar has named a drink for you Brother, now can you believe? But how could you take that smile with you? Brother, how could you leave? You hid your demons oh-so-well But donít you know you had a friend Who'd have followed you to the gates of hell Then brought you back again? The whole townís here to say goodbye Flowers line the street Can't you hear this whole town cry Brother, how could you leave? Can't you hear your old friend crying Brother, why did you leave?
