Gone too Far

Sun is Rising

Love my girl, but she's messing around,
Made me the fool, running all over town.
Drives me crazy when I'm home at night,
She keeps me fretting 'til the morning light.
I should leave her, but her spell is too strong,
Sun is rising, and I've been waiting all night long...

Well its the second time this week that I heard her speak
of the hard work in school,
But class is done by eight, why is she home so late?
Does she think I'm a fool?
Even blind men can see that something is wrong,
Sun is rising, and I've been waiting all night long...

Now she's gone and I'm better this way,
I play my guitar every night and day.
Never knew that it could feel so good,
I love my girl made of steel and wood.
'Cause when I hold her close, I can hear her sing my song,
Sun is rising, and I've been playing all night long...
Come on baby, play with me, yeah!


Runaway Girl
Saddle-up, make a move girl, you're running away.
You've heard enough bad news about the dues you've gotta pay. Hit the road, take a turn, it'll do you just fine,
and soon enough you'll be leaving them woes behind.

It'll tell you everything that you want to know,
Right now, you can go where you want to go, girl,
'Cause you're a runaway girl.

Sun-up, a new day in a brand new town.
You'll shake it off, tear it up, and then you'll knock it all down.
Looking back on a life that you won't even know.
You've come so far now, but how much further will you go?

It'll tell you everything that you want to hear,
Great times, all your trouble gonna disappear, girl,
'Cause you're a runaway girl.

Heaven knows where you'll go, there's a map in your mind.
A cloud of dust in the air means you're making good time.
For a year, for a month, a week, or for a day.
You'll be calling all the shots now you're running away.
You're running away, you're running away,
'Cause you're a runaway girl.

It'll show you everything that you want to see,
Sure enough, you can be all you want to be, girl,
'Cause you're a runaway girl.
A little runaway girl.

Now you're a runaway girl,
A little runaway girl,
Now you're a runaway girl,
A little runaway....


The Deluge
It comes like a deluge that pours from within,
It's darker than evil and meaner than sin,
It steals your attention and strangles your mind,
It dampens the senses and renders you blind.
It holds you for ransom, and you pay it with pills,
It changes direction, and once again all is still...

So when will it find you? And why does it come?
How can you hide it? And why cant you run?
It's only a feeling, it comes and it goes,
It may never leave you, but from time to time it changes clothes...

Search for the reason, try to explain,
Sifting the memories for something to blame.
I know that you're hurting, I know that it's real,
The cross you are bearing, and the way that you feel,
I'll share in the burden, and come when you call,
You know I'll be waiting, to be the one that breaks your fall.


Gone Too Far
You said you will come, But I've been waiting too long,
You said you will come, But I've been waiting too long.
Just step on a greyhound and get off in L.A., 
Then fly down to Sydney, I'm back here to stay.
Missing you badly and making me blue,
Have I gone too far, from you?

I wait for your call, but I might not hear it at all,
I wait for your call, but I might not hear it at all.
Sometimes there are weeks when I just can't get through,
The distance keeps growing between me and you,
The waiting gets old, but the timing is new...
Have I gone too far, from you?

I love you babe, did I make a mistake when I left you with nothing to hold? I love you babe, did I make a mistake, do you think that our love's grown cold?
You've got to be brave, got to be strong, I wish I could tell you I wont be too long, But I cant shake this feeling that something is wrong, Have I gone too far, from you?

Maybe it's too long for someone to wait,
Maybe it's too hard, too sad, or too late,
Maybe it's too bad I'm not there with you,
And maybe it's over just tell me it's true 
if I've gone too far from you?
Have I gone too far from you?
Have I gone too far from you?


Three of Hearts
Hey babe, I think I'd better tell you,
I've got my heart wrapped around you,
When are we gonna be together?
It's hard to say.
For so long I've been loving you,
And I know you feel it too.
but I'm caught up in this game we play.
'Cause when I draw my card, its always the same,
Three hearts and one love, we're caught in the game.
When I draw my card, again and again,
Three hearts and one love.

So you love another girl,
You are both beautiful,
and I'd love you to make room for me.
I know that we can work it out,
there's no need to have a doubt,
it's time your two hearts became three ,
'Cause when I draw my card, it's always the same,
Three hearts and one love, we're caught in the game,
When I draw my card, again and again,
Three hearts and one love.

The two of you lying next to me, we could keep going round again, The three of us in the same love, you know its so rare,
I still believe we can make it ...we just have to share.


Thicker Than Water
When you were young, you dreamt of a life that was better,
You talked about love, I told you to go out and get her,
But somewhere it changed, all of your hopes had been shattered, Time slipped away, with everything you thought had mattered.

Trapped in the mind, try to express what you're feeling,
but no-one can hear, or they don't understand what you're saying. So you keep it inside, until you decide there's a reason,
For shocking the world, with outbursts of internal treason.

But your blood is thicker than water,
So when you feel like a lamb to the slaughter,
You know I am real, I'll always believe you,
Help you to heal, and give someone to turn to.

Do what you can, and work with the hand you've been given,
If patience were gold, you could be the master of kingdoms.
then you break-down, and act out to get some attention,
but deep in the heart is where you will find your redemption.

'Cause your blood is thicker than water
So when you feel like a lamb to the slaughter,
You know I am real, I'll always believe you
Help you to heal, and give you someone to turn to.


Love and War
She was old enough to know that something's wrong,
But still too young to put a finger on,
The reason she was never satisfied,
or the darkness buried deep inside.

She thought that he could ease her troubled mind,
But he wasn't moving forward with the times,
The ring, the house, the kids, the life, the dream....
Went slipping by, like a mountain stream.

She'd left it all unspoken, assumed the deal was done,
So when the rules were broken there was no smoking gun.
She'd walked into an ambush that was obviously there,
In love and war, all is fair,
In love and war, all is fair.

Ignored the truth, though it was plain to see,
He could not be in love and still be free,
'Cause he'd give an arm to hold her by his side,
and then he'd bite one off to run into the night.

Never gave him reason to complain,
Never did she cause him any pain,
But sometimes he'd just rather be alone,
and then he couldn't find the words to bring her home.

He can't blame her for leaving, and wished he'd done the same,
But he was trapped by inhibition, and crucified by shame.
The overwhelming silence was more than she could bare ,
In love and war, all is fair,
In love and war, all is fair.


One of a Kind
Tell me, where did you come from?
God knows I'd been waiting so long...
A real love is so rare to find,
and your love is one of a kind.
You're one of a kind, you're one of a kind.
You're one of a kind, you're one of a kind.

Sometimes I think we've met before,
In this life, or maybe something more....
'Cause your touch can bring me peace of mind,
And your love is one of a kind.

When I'm gone too long, you say you understand,
And when I'm lost for words, I know you understand,
And anytime I'm wrong, you say you understand,
And anywhere it hurts, I know you understand,
You understand.
'Cause you're one of a kind, 
You're one of a kind.

So tell me, where did you come from?
God knows I'd been waiting so long....


Last Drinks
He watches the barman pouring a drink for a stranger,
as he thinks to himself "who will I meet here tonight?".
He might see old friends, or catch-up with someone he worked for,
He might even get lucky, or get in a fight.

But who is that man making a noise in the corner?
It's no-one he's heard of, and not what he came here to see.
He can't name those songs, it's not music he'd like to dance to,
so he thinks it's no good, and he hears it for free.

By 'last drinks' it all happens, he cheers for the teams on the TV,
While the pool table beckons, and the jukebox lights-up on the wall.
He yells and he screams, demands everybody's attention,
But he's got nothing to say, he's got nothing at all.

Well I've had enough, I played them my songs for three hours.
I've had enough, I don't even care if they die.
I gave them my heart, poured out my soul by the glassful, 
and now I've got no more to give, I wont even try,
I've got no more to give, I wont even try.
