Track Name: (Jack) Say It
(Jack) SAY IT
Doesn't she love you like she used to do.
Lovingly hold you as the one you knew.
Doesn't she squeeze you Johnny oh so tight.
Tenderly enfold you through the pale moonlight.

Surrender say it. Oh say it. Give it up Jack - say it.
Why don't you say it?
But who never lost control - always tried to give it all
How she took your breath away yea
No matter how far we perceived
She could somehow set you free
With whatever she'd got to say.

Is somebody holding her away from you.
With a huggedy hug as when your love-a was-a new?
Surrender say it. Oh say it. Give up Jack say it.
Why don't you say it?

But you never lost control about a million years ago
When she took you miles away - yea
Now no matter how far you've become.
Will you try to carry on? What have you got to say?

"Same old faces, empty spaces, silver places we knew
Now tomorrow, same old sorrow, same things born out of you"

Remember she told you "you're mine all mine"
Now would you believe you're talking once upon a time
Say it. Oh say it. Go on Jack say it. Why don't you say it?
Track Name: Sunburst
SUNBURST
I have a friend a working guy and what you see is what you get
He says it's only me I'm passing time
I haven't made my million yet
And everyday his gloomy soul is all the rage on the radio
He's never up is always down within his sound.

'Til the sun comes bursting through the sky
Burning from on high
When we stay forever young forever you'll be mine.

I know someone a lovely girl
Suffers from too much previous thought.
She thinks it's only her who's passing time
Is passing quicker than it ought
At last a kind of savagery is centered clean into her soul.
The weariness lives on and on within her mind.

'Til the sun comes bursting through the sky
Burning from on high
Where we stay forever young forever you'll be mine.

Oh my beloved, how I want you to stay cos you brighten my day
We're star struck and Sally couldn't hold us awa
After we heard you say
I have a friend a spooky guy and what you see is what you get.
He says it's only me I'm passing time I haven'tmade my trillions yet
And everyday his groovy soul is all the rage on the radio.

When the sun comes bursting through his sky
Burning from on high
When you stay forever young, forever you'll be mine,
Yea forever you'll be mine.
Track Name: Primitive Strike
PRIMITIVE STRIKE
It takes a primitive strike on your soul to hurt you.
It takes a pretty good swipe at your heart to open up the wounds.
So take us away from the sight of our ancestors,
Help us to stray from the might of our emperors,
Everyone's smiling their faces beguiling
It takes a well hard primitive swipe at my heart to hurt me.
Takes a pretty good smite on your soul to open up the wounds.
So guide us today to the source of our energies,
Spare us we pray from the swords of our enemies.
Everyone's smiling their faces beguiling
It takes a pretty good swipe at my heart to hurt me.
Takes a primitive strike on my soul to hurt me.
To hurt me
Track Name: A Thing For My Head
A THING FOR MY HEAD
We got a pill if we drink too much.
If we can't walk then we can use a crutch.
We can swim if we're gonna drown
Somebody pull us up if we're comin on down.
So if ever one day we try breaking free
I can blame it on you and baby you can run to me.

You know what I just had a thought It's really hard to think
Wwhen your mind is taut.
And I can't seem to find a thing for my head
I can't seem to find a thing for my head.
You know what, you know what this is wrong, what I've got

You say if ever one day we try to sail to sea
I can count on you and baby you can flee to me.
You know what did you have a thought
Is it hard to feel when your heart is hot?
'Cos I can't seem to find a thing for my head
No I can't seem to find a thing for my head
And I’m out of my mind nothing for my head
I can't seem to find a thing for my head.
For my Head.
Track Name: The Boogie Man
THE BOOGIE MAN
Here's the boogie man, he's a bugle boogie man.
Nobody gonna judge ya, say the boogie man.
But don't take no sleight of hand from the boogie - man.
Everybody's gotta breathe it
Well everybody's gotta breathe in some,
We're on a satellite livin' in the atmosphere
Miss Boogie man has come
I'm led to understand, pay the boogie man
Is everybody born to boogie is it somethin' we can't lose?
No Cash-ugi man, wheres the boogie man?
He's gonna take your hand ... and boogie
Everybody's boogyin' - sockin' out on a Friday night
With the booga boogie man.
On a Friday night? Oh do what you can,
For the boogie, bloogie, boogie man.
My body wants to ruba dooby,
Scooby doop daddle what bam boo
Wiggly bop bap googly ap n'dap bap ruby
We hannah rockin in the house of blue dooby
We all gotta breathe this atmosphere and boogie man
So let's . . . boogie man, here's the boogie boogie man
Don't take no sleight of hand, but I don't understand
Everybody gotta breathe this atmosphere, boogie boogy man

Is everybody born to boogie. Is it somethin' we can't lose?
Cocashuuggi man, where's the boogie man?
Where's the boogie man? Boogie man. Spooky man.
So Spooky
Track Name: Make It Sting
MAKE IT STING
She's a long way from loving you
Such a long way from Peggy Sue.
But it doesn't mean you'll never mean a thing to her
Could you make it sting? Make it sting

She's a long way from seeing blue
Not a long way from Jimmy too.
But it doesn't mean you'll never see her face again
If you can make it sting, make it sting
She'll forget about everything

And one day she might say
'Take my hand we'll run away
Hold my hand we'll run away'
If you think that it's impossible to do
'Cos she's a long way from being true
Ah well It doesn't mean
She'll never fall in love again
She wants to make it sting
Feel it sting and forget about everything
Yet it doesn't mean a thing to her
It doesn't mean a thing to her.
No matter what you sing to her.

One day she might say
'Take my hand we'll run away,
Hold my hand we'll fly away'

But it doesn't mean a thing to her.
Track Name: Paradise Life
PARADISE LIFE
You never ever stood a chance
Nobody showed you how to dance
Oh what a paradise life
What a paradise life we try to lead.

We risk a semi-permanent spell.
It weaves the lie that we're doing well, ah baby

Oh what a paradise life, what a paradise life,
Such a paradise life until you tell me what you're gonna do

Somebody tells me that the river flows
Into the Northern valley winter snows
Something tells me that it might have been
Just about the greatest thing She's ever seen

So sometimes in the dead of night - we wake up crying
Every morning I wake up I say a little prayer for two
Until you tell me what you're gonna do

Oh what a paradise life we lead, we're sighing
Every morning I wake up I say a little prayer for you
Such a paradise life to lead, we're flying

Oh what a paradise life, it's a paradise life
Oh yes a paradise life we lead, we're dying
Track Name: Lazy Blue
LAZY BLUE
Can I be your baby tonight? Ooh yea your baby tonight
It's a long way where I'm gone.
Can I play your lover's fool If I come to your Mother's school
At 6 o’clock tonight? Don't run away without me like you do.
Don't kiss me once and leave me lazy blue.

With eyes that fire no dreams of yesterday.
The times for weariness we've put away,
I love you more than ever yes I do,
I will love you more for ever lazy blue.
I think my mind has gone missing since I let you
Take me in your arms and hold me tight.

Can I see you later tonight? It's sad when you’re gone.
And you’re gone. So kiss me once and hold me like you do
I love you more than ever lazy blue.
We love you more than ever lazy blue.
Track Name: Feel the Sky
FEEL THE SKY
As the days go by I can feel the sky
If the restless moon is a red balloon.
Then I don't know why or what it is I cry
But we can have some fun
In the rising sun.

As the time slips by and the monsters fly
I can feel no pain no matter who's to blame
There's a world outside where us two lovers hide,
We're gonna have big fun
In the morning sun

As the evening dies I can feel the skies
Still the restless moon is a red balloon.
So as the days go by, I try to keep a simple eye
And the time will come - like the rising sun.
As the days go by baby you and I can see the time will come
Like the rising sun.
Track Name: So Hard To Stop Loving You 2008
SO HARD TO STOP LOVING YOU
So many times, maybe lately twenty times.
If the gold has been fools you've seen us all through
Many times.

In the Summertime. Then will there come a time
If the borders remain can we break through the rain
In the Summertime
When I saw you today I got carried away with my heart
It's so hard to stop loving you
It's so very hard to stop loving you.
Why can't we pretend you love me again?
Tomorrow will soon bring another day.

Jill sing along and all the friends you wanna bring along
Cos' soon like this song the time will be gone, so sing along.

I'll stay to the end 'til you love me again like the stars.
It's so hard to stop loving you, it's awful hard to stop loving you.
Though just to let go hurts me so tomorrow will soon bring
Another day.
