IT'S OVER

Here we go again It never seems to end

It's always the same you know it'll never change

You say it's different now but I know somehow

When the morning comes we will both feel numb

It's over now, The curtain has been drawn

Hey, I don't need reassurance from the dawn to know

It's over

You say our love's not dead but you know in your head

That it's just a lie and long ago it died

There'll be no resurrection of true love and affection

And when the morning comes we will both feel numb

It's over now, The curtain has been drawn

Hey, I don't need reassurance from the dawn to know

It's over

Well, it don't make any sense to try it all again

It's always the same you know it will never change

You say it's different now but I know somehow

When the morning comes we will both feel numb

It's over now, The curtain has been drawn

Hey, I don't need reassurance from the dawn to Know

it's over

I WAS THE ONE

 Well, if I should die before tomorrow comes

You tell all my friends that I was the one

You tell them I was the one, tell them I was the one

If I should die before tomorrow comes

You tell all my friends that I was the one

I was the one

 I don't want no memorial with 21 guns

You just tell all my friends that I was the one

You tell them I was the one, tell them I was the one

I don't want no memorial with 21 guns

You just tell all my friends that I was the one

I was the one

 After they lay me down in my grave

Hire a band and see that they're well paid

Throw a party, have a bucket full of fun

Tell all my friends that I was the one

 Well, don't send me no flowers, don't come undone

You just tell all my friends that I was the one

You tell them I was the one, tell them I was the one

Don't send me no flowers, don't come undone

You just tell all my friends that I was the one

I was the one

I WANT YOU BACK

 I'm down so low, dead in my tracks / I miss you baby, I want you back

I miss you darling, I miss you so  / I want you back 

I've done you wrong, I know it's true / now I know baby, I was a fool

I miss you darling, I miss you so / I want you back

I'm telling you now, I've changed my ways /  I love you baby, and I will always

I miss you darling, I miss you so / I want you back

I'm begging you now, don't hesitate / let me prove my love, I hope it's not too late

I miss you darling, I miss you so / I want you back

 I'm standing here now, a shattered man

Without you I'm lost, please understand

I'm standing here now, pledging my love

I'll give it all to you, hope it's enough

Give me one more chance, let me prove myself / I'll love you baby, and no one else

I miss you darling, I miss you so / I want you back

 I'm down so low, dead in my tracks / I miss you baby, I want you back

I miss you darling, I miss you so / I want you back

EVERYTHING CHANGES

 Itís been a long hard night

But you know itís gonna be all right, itíll be all right

Itís been all twist and shout

But you know itíll all work out, itíll all work out

 Everything changes in the universe

The stars are shifting and the clouds are lifting

Everything changes in the universe

Put on your walking shoes, say good-bye to the blues

Everything changes in the universe

 Itís been an uphill climb

But you know itís gonna be all right, itíll be all right

Itís been a hard fought bout

But you know itíll all work out, itíll all work out

 Well you know that they say every dog will have its day

So if push comes to shove, you must be strong when the road gets rough

If you get tossed and turned let it be a lesson learned

And try not to let it get you down, donít let it get you down

 Dark rain been falling all night

But you know itís gonna be all right, itíll be all right

Hard wind blowiní all around

But you know itíll all work out, itíll all work out

Everything changes in the universe

The stars are shifting and the clouds are lifting

Everything changes in the universe

Put on your walking shoes, say good-bye to the blues

Everything changes in the universe

DAMNED IF YOU DONíT, DAMNED IF YOU DO

It's the same old story, ain't nothing new

Damned if you don't and you're damned if you do

A no win situation no matter what you do

Damned if you don't and you're damned if you do

 Stuck between a hard place and a rock

The sign says "don't walk" but you can't stop

Should I go or should I stay

Either way there'll be a price to pay

It's the same old story, ain't nothing new

Damned if you don't and you're damned if you do

A no win situation no matter what you do

Damned if you don't and you're damned if you do

 Standing at a crossroad wondering which way to go

Been searching for an answer, but still I don't know

I love you darling, you know I do

But the things you want I can't give to you

 It's the same old story, ain't nothing new

Damned if you don't and you're damned if you do

A no win situation no matter what you do

Damned if you don't and you're damned if you do

YOU HAUNT MY SOUL

 I don't know what it is about you

That haunts my soul

I thought I knew but baby I don't know

You haunt my soul

 I see your face everywhere I go

You haunt my soul

I think I see you but then I don't know

You haunt my soul

 I don't know what it is about you

That haunts my soul

I thought I knew but baby I don't know

You haunt my soul

 In the darkness late at night

You haunt my soul

I try to shake it with all my might

You haunt my soul 

Maybe it was your touch

Maybe it was your kiss

Oh baby, your love is so addictive

You haunt my soul

 I don't know what it is about you

That haunts my soul

I thought I knew but baby I don't know

You haunt my soul

 In a crowd or all alone

You haunt my soul

Your memory chills me right down to the bone

You haunt my soul

LOVE GONE FLAT

Hey now baby I know that dress

You had it on the night we met

Where you going, honey, dressed like that

Is this it, has our love gone flat

Has our love gone flat, Has our love gone flat

Is this it baby, are we through

Are you going out tonight to find someone new

Has our love gone flat

You sit around looking through your little black book

The telephone seems to ring off the hook

It's never for me, now that's a fact

Is this it, has our love gone flat

Has our love gone flat, Has our love gone flat

Is this it baby, are we through

Are you going out tonight to find someone new

Has our love gone flat

You've been staying out late running all around

Everybody knows it, it's all over town

Why you want to treat me like that

Is this it, has our love gone flat

Has our love gone flat, Has our love gone flat

Is this it baby, are we through

Are you going out tonight to find someone new

Has our love gone flat

Is this it baby, are we through

Are you going out tonight to find someone new

Has our love gone flat

OH KATHLEEN

You said you'd write, I guess your pen's out of ink

You said you'd stop by, guess your car's been on the blink

Cause I ain't seen you now since I can't remember when

But I think of you from time to time every now and then

Oh Kathleen

Oh Kathleen

I think it's such a drag the way time moves so slow

When there's no one to see and there's nowhere to go

Staring out my window just killing time

Next thing I know, well, I've got you on my mind

Oh Kathleen

Oh Kathleen

Do you ever stop and think about me

Late at night when you're all alone

Do you think about me

Way off in the distance I can hear a radio

The D.J.'s saying he's gonna shake my soul

He plays a song from way back when

It starts me thinking about you again

Oh Kathleen

Oh Kathleen

IT'S JUST MY WAY

Well here I go down that long lonesome highway

Well here I go, you know I'm gonna do it my way

I walk the way I walk, I talk the way I talk

I live the way I live, you know it's just my way

 

Well here I go down that long lonesome highway

Well here I go, you know I'm gonna do it my way

I do the things I choose, you know win or lose

Now come what may, you know it's just my way

 

Well here I go down that long lonesome highway

Well here I go, you know I'm gonna do it my way

I am the way I am, I hope you understand

Nothing more I can say, you know it's just my way

 

Well here I go down that long lonesome highway

Well here I go, you know I'm gonna do it my way

I walk the way I walk, I talk the way I talk

I live the way I live, you know it's just my way

KEPT ON KEEPING ON

Talk about your bad luck, I've had my share

Talk about them hard times, I've been there

Blood on the saddle, fire on the bridge

Burning down that candle from both ends

I've been hung out, left for dead and gone

But through it all I kept on keeping on

I kept on keeping on

Yes, I've seen better days but still I've seen worse

I've seen some dark times when I swore that I was cursed

Caught in the cross fire with nowhere to retreat

Free fallin' out of control with the devil in the driver's seat

I've been hung out, left for dead and gone

But through it all I kept on keeping on

I kept on keeping on

When lifeís roller coaster starts heading for the drop

And you can't find the brakes and you can't stop

Like a rollin' freight train burning up the track

You got to keep on pushing forward, don't waste time looking back

I've been hung out, left for dead and gone

But through it all I kept on keeping on

I kept on keeping on

JUDGE, I'M NOT SORRY

(THE MURDER BALLAD)

For three long years I worked two jobs night and day

At the end of every week, I gave her all the money that I made

She cheated and she lied and she done me wrong

And, judge, I'm not sorry

I bought her a new house, new clothes and a Mercedes-Benz

I was being such a fool is what I heard from all my friends

She cheated and she lied and she done me wrong

And, judge, I'm not sorry

She said that she loved me; she said she would always

But in the arms of another man is how she spent her days

She cheated and she lied and she done me wrong

And, judge, I'm not sorry

Seeing her lying there in the arms of another man

Was more than I could take

Though I can't remember how that gun got in my hand

I pulled the trigger, make no mistake

So go on and sentence me; give me life without parole

Any life would be better than the life I had with her

She cheated and she lied and she done me wrong

And, judge, I'm not sorry

SATURDAY NIGHT

Well here it is another Saturday night

Made it through another week

Hey mister bartender

Won't you give me a double, please

In 36 hours I'll be back at work

With the boss man on my back

So I'm gonna rock, rock, rock, rock

Until I drop

I work like a dog all week long

Just trying to make ends meet

So on Saturday night I let it all hang out

And dance to that rockin' beat

In 36 hours I'll be back at work

With the boss man on my back

So I'm gonna rock, rock, rock, rock

Until I drop

So put another dollar in the jukebox

Let it rip and rock

Crank up that volume now

Don't let the music stop

In 36 hours I'll be back at work

With the boss man on my back

So I'm gonna rock, rock, rock, rock

Until I drop
