LATELY

I gotta split quick somehow, because she got me in deep. I'm too deep right now

But soon I'm feelin' restless

When most of our time is spent around my mattress.


Lady, Lately, you've been selling me on your essence

But Lately, I'm crazy

cuz i just can't give you everything


Now i bet you wonder why I'd ever be hesitant, but i've spent my whole life just looking for a quick fix

Now I can't hear the mess

Its like im goin deaf

but you cant hear me sing it if my throats all strep

so baby tell me what's left.  

and now I can't believe, its how its gotta be, oh you make me feel a way

but I still gotta leave, cuz I gotta be free

Lady, Lately, you've been selling me on your essence

But Lately, I'm crazy

cuz i just can't give you everything

Maybe you're better than the rest

Or maybe im goin deaf

but you cant hear me sing it if my throats all strep

so baby tell me what's left.

Lady, Lately, you've been selling me on your essence

But Lately, I'm crazy

cuz i just can't give you everything

MISSOURI

You'll never Try if you Have To

You can't survive if they won't let you

Will you hide away in a bedroom?

Is that really what you're used to?

So you put up some pictures, try to make it a home. But is a home really a home if you're eatin alone?

You find yourself waitin on the ring of the phone, but swearin to yourself that you're fine on your own.

Askin' all the right questions

And searchin for your direction

Though you're reachin out to someone

You only see your own refelction.

So you put up some pictures, try to make it a home, is a home really a home if you're Sleepin alone?

You find yourself waitin on the ring of the phone, but swearin to yourself that you're fine on your own.

Oh its such a lonely world

A world of inequality

Are we searching for a cure, or are we choosing to ignore

We're seeing more, Misery

I drive the night til I'm in Branson

Though I, have never been a man for gamblin

Only I decide my fate

Though I, am sure nothin will ever change

So I'm takin down the pictures of my so called home

where I was sure I would spend my whole life alone

'Aint nobody on the other end of the phone

But my misery is slowly turning into a song

Oh its such a lonely world

A world of inequality

Are we searching for a cure, or are we choosing to ignore

We're seeing more, Misery

CRYIN' SHAME

Well its a cryin' shame, I'm still Lovin You

Aint that the truth

And one of these days. I'm gonna have to choose

That's why its such a cyin' shame that I'm,

I'm still Lovin you

Well its a cryin' shame, I'm even cryin at all

And though tears may fall

I still have my alcohol


That's why its such a cyin' shame that I'm,

even cryin' at all

Oh it seems I've loved and lost another for the ten thousandth time

I'm angry and confused

Oh I was a fool to forget that I'll always be alone

Just shamefully still cryin' over you


Oh its a cryin' shame

I seem to be up past 2

'Aint that the truth

And its all cuz of, cuz of booze


That's why its such a cyin' shame that I

I seem to be up past 2


Oh and as my luck would have it, i see I've reached my limit

Its such a, saddening point of view

I'm stripped of my desire for some brand new frist impression

Just shamefully still cryin' over you 

Still its a cryin' shame, I'm still Lovin You

Aint that the truth

I know its all probably cuz of booze

That's why its such a cyin' shame that 

I'm shamefully still cryin' over you

MONEY DON'T BUY ME TIME

Oh I Need Rest 
Been up a few days, now I feel it in my chest 
Nothin' is for certain, so I wonder what's next 
..And if it aint for the fame, Guess I'm workin' for respect 
I'm Workin' For Respect 

Oh Tell me what I'm singing for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me Time 

Now I walk behind my own lead 
Now I finally got my way 
But if they tell you that is easy 
No, it gets harder everyday 


Oh Tell me what I'm singing for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me Time 

All my days are slaved away 
I fear I've made myself Insane 
(RRRAAHH) 


Oh Tell me what I'm singing for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me Time 
(Money don't buy me, no money don't buy me no time) 

So Tell me what I'm sangin' for 
Did the meanin' just slip my mind 
Oh I wish someone had told me that Money Don't Buy Me.. 
Time

SOO GOOD

Oh its so good, the way you live so differently 

I don't think you could spend a day away from me

Though I feel the same, I'd never let you know

Can't ignore the feeling I should take it slow

Well you opened my eyes, changed my perspective

I won't say I'm addicted even though its what I'm thinkin

But oh I know I should

Should be quick in deciding

To empty out my wallet for the feelin you supplyin

Cause Oh its so good

Burnin' Desire takes me higher

I'm bound to be always beside her

I may be heard and misunderstood

But why would I stress when the feelin is Oh so Good?

By now you should know that I've changed Lately

I will never be sold, and question everything

In a world we think we see

What we think we believe has been sold to the powers that be

Burnin' Desire takes me higher

I'm bound to be always beside her

I may be heard and misunderstood

But why would I stress when the feelin is Oh so Good?

Oh its so, Oh its so good.

Burnin' Desire takes me higher

I'm bound to be always beside her

I may be heard and misunderstood

But why would I stress when the feelin is Oh so Good?

SAY. BE, KNOW.

Oh this road we're on, Ya it seems so far

But who know where it goes?

Now its plain to see we're the enemy

In our own Home

Is it our freedom that they want?

Or have we found out way too much?

 How long can they keep watching us

Either way our time is up

Say

Say what you can say before they take it away

Be

I am what I believe and I believe What I see

Know

Know you're not the only one

Say 

Say what you can say before they take it away

Open Up your eyes, Never compromise

Don't let it be

Oh is there a way not to be afraid?

I guess we'll See

When nothings left to fill our cups

Maybe then we've had enough

How long can they keep watching us

Either way our time is up

Say

Say what you can say before they take it away

Be

I am what I believe and I believe What I see

Know

Know you're not the only one

Say 

Say what you can say before they take it away
