Track Name: Do It For Love
Take back
All those things you said
When you were tired of living
Hold on
To the dreams we shared
They were so easy to believe in
Turn back
From the way you're goin'
It's a rocky road for sure
Lift up your heart to heaven
Dream this dream with me once more

Do it for love
Do it for love

Tell me how to love you
Let me know what I've been missing
Don't walk out of this life again
You've got me, You've got this love
This world in your hand

Do it for love
Do it for love

And I can see a time
when we will dare to laugh
At all these ghosts that haunt us
Hey, that day we'll say we did it
Did it for love
Track Name: I Can't Get Over It
You say you're sorry
I can't get over it
I said I forgive you
I can't get over it
You say you'll learn from this mistake
I can't get over it
I should be giving you a break
But I can't...

We've put it behind us now
I can't get over it
Nothing left to remind us now
I can't get over it
They say that time heals every wound
I can't get over it
You thought the worst was over soon
I can't get over it

You need somebody
Who can get over it
You need somebody
Who can get over it

We know you're wiser now
I can't get over it
I don't want to despise you now
I can't get over it
I try and force myself to forget
But it's hanging right over my head

I've done so much worse so many times myself
I can't get over it
I've got no right to indict somebody else
I can't get over it
You hurt us both, I'm hurting us more
Not getting over it
Could I say I ever really loved you
If I don't get over it

We need somebody
Who can get over it
We need somebody
Who can get over it
We need somebody
to take the pain of it
We need somebody
Who has bought and paid for you
And it!
And it!
End it!
End it!

Who's gonna help me
Who's gonna help me
Get past this thing
Get past this thing
To a real place
To a real place
Give you some space
Give you some space
Where I can face it
Where I can face it
We can erase it
We can erase it
Oh erase it!
Oh erase it!
Erase!
Erase!
Erase!

Erase!
Erase!
Erase!
Erase!
Track Name: What Was In That Letter
It's amazing
What words can do
Give your eyes a sparkle
Turn you inside out
You washed in those words
You sewed them in the lining of your heart
They slowly seeped into your blood
And ran the course of your body

Faster than any drug
Faster than lightning
They ran to your feet
Your steps were solid
And they ran on to your hands
Your fingers weren't afraid to touch
And they ran to your lips
And they spoke so soft
Ever so softly to me

What was in that letter
That calls to me, to me, to me
What was in that letter
Straight to the very heart of me
What was in that letter
That haunts me from this distance
What was in that letter
So sure
So persistent

Why don't you open it
Read it again
Read it over again to you and me
Why don't you let every last line
Sink into our little minds
Read it again
Tear the curtain down
Pull the altar to the ground

What was in that letter
That calls to the soul of me
What was in that letter
Tenderly, sweetly
What was in that letter
That haunts me from this distance

What was in that letter?
Track Name: Pearls Before Swine
He put it out
It meant nothing in the world to him so
He put it out
His hunger needed some attention so
He laid it out
Swapped it all for a bowl of pork and beans
And he got put out
Left for poor
By a man of means

Esau, you sod
You gave it away
Esau, you sought it with tears
Couldn't get it back again

She put it out
He put the heat on and she got too hot so
She put it out
Gives in a little
But she's giving him a lot and she lays it out
She's showing all her prized possessions to him and
She's putting out
She's swapping everything for what he's putting in but
Her lamp goes out
She didn't notice the light was growing dim and then
He goes out
And he takes everything that she had
With him

Tamar babe
You shoulda run away
Tamar babe
You saw it coming
Did you have to stay and play
Tamar babe!
Where was your head that day
Tamar, He took your best and left
You left it too late
Too late
Too late
Too late
Too late

Ashes for your veil
Ashes for your veil
Veil of ashes
Veil of ashes
Veil of ashes
Track Name: The Lust, The Flesh, The Eyes & The Pride Of Life
Well, I feel
Like I have to feel
Something good all of the time
With most of life I cannot deal
But a good feeling I can feel
Even though it may not be real
And if a person, place or thing can deliver
I will quiver with delight
But will it last me for all my life
Or just one more lonely night

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me

Well, I see something and I want it
Bam! Right now!
No questions asked
Don't worry how much it costs me now or later
I want it and I want it fast
I'll go to any length
Sacrifice all that I already have
And all that I might get
Just to get
Something more that I don't need
And Lord, please don't ask me what for

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me

And I love when folks
Look right at me
And what I'm doing
Or have done
And lay it on about
How groovy I am
And that I'm looking grand
And every single word
Makes me think I'll live forever
Never knowing that they probably
Won't remember what they said tomorrow
Tomorrow I could be dead

The lust, the flesh
The eyes
And the pride of life
Drain the life
Right out of me
Track Name: Frames Without Photographs
Lonely mess
Staring out a window pane
Sitting on an unmade bed
Thinking with an un-madeup mind
About the things I can't forget
You've gone but you never left

And now I'm only a frame
A frame without a photograph
If only once someone
Someone would fill me up

How can I bear
This nightmare that I cannot tear
From the everyday I wear
Over and over
Like a B-movie
The kind you wouldn't want to see

And now I'm only a frame
A frame without a photograph
If only once someone
Someone would fill me up
I am only a frame
A frame without a photograph

Fill me up
Fill me up
Fill me up
Fill me up

I've got a need to be met
By someone that I've not met yet
I've got shadows, I've got silhouettes
But haven't the frame nor the framework

I am only a frame
A frame without a photograph
If only once someone
Someone would fill me up
Track Name: Don't Say Goodbye
Who is that calling you home
Someone you don't even know
Who is that calling you, calling you
Find out before you go

You say you're leaving
Where are you going, baby
No guarantee
Destination unknown
You say you're at the point
Where every single place
And every look on every face
Makes you want to cry
And everything you see
When you walk in a room
Is straight out of a bad dream
But the dream came true
And now you wanna die
Oh no baby-o

Oh
Don't say goodbye
Oh
Don't say goodbye

I beg your pardon, but
Who promised you a garden
(East of Eden)
You're arrogant to presuppose there's bliss
(Somewhere over the abyss)
You bet your life and hope to find a different place
A different world at a different pace
Don't make a brand new start
'Cuz who you are
And what you've been
Is what you'll bring
To every place and every thing
Without a change of heart
More of the same thing, baby-o

Oh
Don't say goodbye
Oh
Don't say goodbye

You never hear birds singing
(Someone hears you crying)
Your mind's in winter
(Your frozen heart is dying)
But you're the very best thing
That ever happened to me
Don't go
'Cuz baby I love you so

Oh
Don't say goodbye
Oh
Don't say goodbye
Track Name: Bottom Line
I'm getting tired of walking up every floor
I'm getting tired of waking up anymore
But there's a hope now and there wasn't before
I got no money and I got no time
I fall down every mountain I try to climb
But peace of heart is better than peace of mind

I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh no

You take one look at me and you wanna walk
'Cuz there's no good in me and I shouldn't talk
But I've got everything though nothing at all
I wasn't looking for what it was I found
Myself standing on some holy ground
I couldn't stand it and I had to sit down

Wanted the impossible
Looked for the impossible
The impossible found me first

I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh no

I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh yeh
I've got a bottom line
Oh no
Track Name: I Could Laugh
Mama don't understand
she wants to hold my hand
Night and day
She don't like my clothes
They're wearing thin
On her nerves
She don't like my hair
My glorious crown
Brings her down
She won't take me serious
Think I'll join the circus
Be a clown

And they'll all laugh
They'll all laugh
They'll all laugh
But it's not funny
No

I'm restless
Wanna bust out of my skin
Got a rocket
In my pocket
Got no fuel
No charted course
Got no direction
No, they did not give me those in school
Yes, I've been a fool for cool
But no kind of hair, no shoes, no jackets
Gonna help me hack it, hack it
Hack it to pieces, man
I've had it
And you can have it

Chorus

Well, I wonder what will
Get me off
So I pick and choose and take
And in a couple years
You're right
I'm left
With a great big heartache
So deep and wide
That no matter what
I stuff inside
It's empty
Just the way it came
It's a crying shame
But all the same

Chorus

Should I recall
All the people I have hurt
Along the way
And should I try
To justify
Every wrong I did not right
But two wrongs don't make it right
And so it keeps me up at night
And I lie awake
And while away the meanwhile
And meanwhile......
Meanwhile I dwell
On the baby that I killed
Or the drink I should have not refilled
And every heart I broke in 2
And left to die
Bleeding on the roadside
Or I could sit
And let my eyes
fill with mist
For every girl that
I should not have kissed
And all the broken family ties
The loved ones
I have missed
Yes, I have mist in my eyes
And so I cry
But why should I should I

Chorus

And everything I've got
I'm gonna lose
Both good and bad
Will pass
And what next
What lies
Beyond the broken dreams
And shattered mirrors
I keep looking in
To check my luck
Or skill
But only pride keeps staring back
And stil I laugh
Still
I laugh

And none of this, of course,
Will stand
When I stand before the man
On that great day
Of the great divide
When all the kings and queens
Will have their closets emptied
And the bones will all fall out
'Dem bones 'dem bones 'dem dry bones
Will not fail
Dead men will tell tales

And you can laugh
And I can laugh
And we can laugh
But it's not funny

Don't walk out of this life again
You've got me, You've got this love
This world in your hand

Do it for love
Do it for love

And I can see a time
when we will dare to laugh
At all these ghosts that haunt us
Hey, that day we'll say we did it
Did it for love

Give you some space
Where I can face it
Where I can face it
We can erase it
We can erase it
Oh erase it!
Oh erase it!
Erase!
Erase!
Erase!

Erase!
Erase!
Erase!

Track Name: MT (Unreleased Alternative Mix)
Come on let me in
I swear I'll be your only friend
And I will get down on my knees for you
And if I could
You know I would do anything at all
To get you near today
Hear me say

You're more than money
More than glory
More than I could ever hope to say
You're more than beauty
More than mystery
More than now
More than yesterday

Take me to your heart
'Cuz there is where we make it start
And I will get down on my knees for you
And pay the price
Sacrifice
Do anything at all to melt your soul on ice
Realize

You're more than money
More than glory
More than I could ever hope to say
You're more than beauty
More than mystery
More than now
More than yesterday

More than a lover
More than a friend
More than a talent
More than a trend
More than a mystery
More than a dance
More than your history
More than romance
More than your politics
More than your plans
More than a sure thing
More than a chance
More than your weakness
More than your strength
More than completeness
More than fragments
Track Name: Don't, This Way (Single Version)
Imagine
All those years together
As a blackbird with no song to sing
Imagine
Throwing it to the air
But it falls from broken wings

Don't leave this way, so many words unsaid
Don't lie this way, stretched straight from
Feet to head

Imagine
The sky is pouring down
On the back of all those years
Imagine
That bird helpless on the ground
Shot down by all those tears

Don't leave this way, so many words unsaid
Don't lie this way, stretched straight from
Feet to head
Don't look this way, closed eyes, unmoving lips
Don't feel this way, cold hands and fingertips
