Track Name: Flying Saucer People
I used to act
We made a cow
I played the ass part of the cow
Some girls they sang and danced
And put on some makeup
And this guy showed up with music flying out of his mouth

And it was just like the movies
Like some flying saucer people
Coming high in the sky
But this ain’t the movies
And I’m not like those people in the movies

Walking down High Street
This used to be my street
But today stay away ‘cause a movie’s being made
And a scrappy PA says I gotta go another way
I say hey lemmetellyasomething,
You know just ‘cause you’ve got all of that cash
Shouldn’t give you the right of way, no
‘Cause money can’t buy class
And the last time I asked everybody said your movie sucked ass
So let me pass

‘Cause this ain’t the movies
Ain’t no flying saucer people
Coming to say hi
No this ain’t the movies
And I’m nothing like those people in the movies

na na na naaa na (na na na naaa naaa na)
This ain’t the movies!
na na na naaa na (na na na naaa naaa na)
This ain’t the movies!
na na na naaa na (na na na naaa naaa na)
This ain’t the movies!
na na na naaa na (na na na naaa naaa na)
This ain’t the movies!
na na na naaa na (na na na naaa naaa na)

Track Name: On The Night Train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again

Lost my baggage many times
Singing someone else’s rhymes
Thought you’d save me from myself
Until I found my love sittin’ on your shelf

I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again

The sun can’t hold me to a face
Though I give anything for a taste
The things I like, you know they always hurt
Oh oh but in this life you got guns and you got church

I should know better than to be smart
Your love it hit me like a poison dart
I should know better than to be smart
Your love it hit me like a poison dart

I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again
again again again again again
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once on the night train
I left you once on the night train
I left you once once once but baby here we go again

Track Name: What Happened To The Man?
So it comes to this
The same temptation wearing a different face
You think you can fool me – uh uh

The jailhouse door is swinging open
But I’m just staring out through the bars
The jailhouse door is swinging open
But I’m just staring out through these bars

What happened to the man
I thought I was becoming?
Now my heart is trapped
My arms are wrapped
Holding an empty bag of dreams

Thought I’d let the past become the past
When I was so young and stupid
To think I was any different
I thought I had you fooled

The jailhouse door is swinging open
But I’m just staring out through the bars
The jailhouse door is swinging open
But I’m just sitting here watching TV
The jailhouse door is swinging open
But I’m just sitting here playing cards
The jailhouse door is swinging open
But I’m just staring through goddamn bars

What happened to the man
I thought I was becoming?
Now my heart is trapped
My arms are wrapped
Holding an empty bag of dreams

Thought I’d let the past become the past
Thought I’d let the past become the past
Thought I’d let the past become the past
Same temptation
Oooh same temptation
Oooh same temptation

Track Name: Strawberry Wine
Lips as soft as the wind, you’re like the petals of a flower
No idea where your body ends and the air begins

Trembling, shivering
I’m under your spell
You who are made of blue
Let me live in this blue
‘Cause the peace i find could only be with you
The soft touch of your love divine
Kisses sweet like strawberry wine

Now to find the greatest pain, I can’t hold myself up strong
Searching so far in vain, I’ve wanted you for too long

Trembling, shivering
I’m under your spell
You who are made of blue
Let me live in this blue
‘Cause the peace i find could only be with you
I’m swimming in your love sublime
We share a glass of strawberry wine

Trembling, shivering
I’m under your spell
You who are made of blue
Let me live in this blue ‘cause the peace i find could only be with you
Track Name: Sooner Or Later
Preciousness lies
in the satisfied mind of a man
In those good old days
I let too many of these chances slip by

You can only make so much love
sooner or later you’ll have to let your love make you
You know you’re the one I’m thinking of
sooner or later we’ve got to find our own way through

It’s happening again
just like the other times we tried
In those good old days
I fell in love a little too often for my own good

You can only make so much love
sooner or later you’ll have to let your love make you
You know you’re the one I’m thinking of
sooner or later we’ve got to find our own way through

what comes of chasing love
if not your heart breaking over the cold stone of regret
You wish for the one you want and ignore the one you get

You can only make so much love
sooner or later you’ll have to let your love make you
You know you’re the one I’m thinking of
sooner or later we’ve got to find our own way

You can only make so much love
sooner or later you’ll have to let your love make you
You know you’re the one I’m thinking of
sooner or later we’ve got to find our own way
Sooner or later…

Track Name: Always
My northern heart is bathed in sun
And my hand scribbles the wind
But my frozen voice still shivers
From beneath the shiny skin
I will always love you

Your message in that bottle
Brought a crazy flashing fever
Staining the silence and the sea
But in a world of endless opportunities
Love is only good when it hurts
I will always love you
I will always love you

I’m home again to my new york
With my eyes open wide and the rain on my face
I ran from my lost home to this place
I miss the sun upon your curls, and the moon in your face
I used to turn my head for cute girls
But now only for a parking space
I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always
Always
Always
