1Tell Me When It's Over

Lyrics

Yeah you say it's a waste
oh not to learn from the States
yeah it's really a shame

oh and the stars that you show
yeah might as well gives to show
oh and it's nothing to me

Ch.:
and I really don't know
cause I don't wanna know
yeah tell me when it's over
tell me when it's over
oh let me know when it stop

oh there must be some kind of answer
yeah but the question was closed
ah you got really imagination man

Ch.: and I really don't know...
(2X)

and I really don't know
and I really don't know
and I really don't know
cause I don't wanna know

2Definitely Clean

Lyrics

I'm just standing here waiting
for you to come clean
I'm just standing here waiting
for you to come clean
I'd ask you what you want
but I don't think you'd know what I mean

Something happens and they call you on the telephone
something's missing and you know they want leave you alone
I'm not worried about you
don't worry about me
I'm not worried about you
why should I be?

I got a phone call from your mother
she wants to know where you have been
I got a phone call from your mother
she wants to know where you have been
I say ... ah ....I don't know where she is been

The Days Of Wine And Roses
3Thats What You Always Say

Lyrics

I'd tell you that we've been through this
I know I've told you that before
I'd try to find out where we miss
but it gets to be such a chore
Ever since that time I told you it's so
Something gets my mind and I don't let go
and then the stories and words
they're here and gone
cause that's what you always say
I'd try to sit and talk with you
but you know moods change all the time
I'd try to wait a week or two
but by then I'd probably changed my mind.

4Then She Remembers

Lyrics

She shows a scar where her face met his ring
She remembers the pain but she forgot his name
ah, it's alright it really didn't mean a thing

textbook case of a mistreated daughter
who's been told about some better offers
She agrees but she can't forget her father
....... then she remembers what she said
he had teeth like a vise and hands like a muzzle
he wasn't polite but he had a way with words
on the day that he left she was honestly puzzled.

The Days Of Wine And Roses
5Halloween

Lyrics

There is a place you might wanna go
it's right up my street
you might look and see the light shining
someone you might like to meet
He said "let's go for a ride"
says it all the time
you know you got a lot to live for
and you're gonna be mine
You shouldn't believe the things you reed in papers
they can't come true
I don't believe the things that you see on TV
they'll never happen to you
2 steps forward
don't say I didn't warn you
2 steps forward
I didn't warn you.

6When You Smile

Lyrics

I dreamed last night I was born a hundred years ago
But when I woke up I was lost with only one place to go
When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two

It's not fair to put you against all of the years behind me
But history kind of pales when you and you are aligned

When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two
And it seems like the end of the world
When you smile

Well there's never been a man who's been anymore than bones in sack
But it doesn't take much to hold the possibilities back

When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two
And it seems like the end of the world
When you smile

When you smile, I don't know what to do
Cause I could lose everything in a minute or two
And it seems like the end of the world
Yes, it seems like the end of the world
Yes, it seems like the end of the world
When you smile
When you smile
When you smile
When you smile

The Days Of Wine And Roses
7Until Lately

Lyrics

In my area there is a chain of being
and the most of the attentions is paid to lower things
Around here the rule is good faith
you choose your friends carefully and you're safe.
Well it's just goes to show
how wrong you can be
They say he was in a good position
a man of pride and ambition.
In this world there is one equation
the harder you work, the better is your station
Well tonight on the news I heard them say:
the man in the plaza had a resume.

8Too Little Too Late

Lyrics

We used to talk
about the best taid plans of men
Nothing has changed
I'll just never be frightened again
I'm not gonna warn you
It's gone too far for that
I'm not gonna warn you
We took every clue
and thought it out in
today it's dark outside
Now it's almost meaning less
Too little, too late.

The Days Of Wine And Roses
9The Days Of Wine And Roses

Lyrics

The word from outside
and she is on the ledge again
drawing a card
and threatening everything
I'm here wandering
where I got in
Everybody says I don't care
but I'm just trying to remember
the days of wine and roses
The priest from the parish
is looking for persuasion
the man with the notepad
wants verification
somebody says this was my creation
Her mother says it's your fault
you never looked after her
Her father arranging to
get back the furniture
I'm here wandering
what the reasons were.
