Follow Me 02:57
Verse 1: You’re going further than I can see You don’t remember meeting me It wasn’t all that long ago Just goes to show, you never know Now I have to hide my eyes To save them from the burning lights I don’t think you understand Listen to my rock ‘n’ roll band Listen to my voice and see Why you should just Chorus: Follow me Follow me Follow me Follow me Verse 2: I don’t think you recognise me A man like me should never be Way up here looking down on you I guess you never thought that through Now I have to hide my eyes To save them from the burning lights You might never understand So listen to my rock ‘n’ roll band Listen to my voice and see Why you should just
Verse 1: It’s OK for me to spit on you ‘Cause you’re beneath me You’re just a drunken fool Shame to your friends and family Bridge: You shouldn’t have got into a state like that You’re a disgusting example of human life Chorus: Karma, come and get me Karma, come and get me I just want my wallet back What I done wasn’t all that bad Karma, come and get me Verse 2: Just look at the state of you You’re such a disgrace Half asleep, too drunk to move I should spit in your face.
Evergreen 03:14
Verse 1: Yeah Gotta let me know Why you don't show You're love to me no more Verse 2: So Why don't you go As we both know I'm gonna show you the door Chorus: Cos it happened today I need to get away Find something new Something I can fight through I'm out On the edge Of where I wanna be There's no life in this town no more God Give me another try Or get me high But don't let me fall behind
Another Song 03:31
Verse 1: And so she said to me It’s time for another song It’s now about a month or so Where did it all go wrong? I know you told me something But I don’t think it was true You know I like to hear your voice But only if it comes from you Chorus: What do you want me to say That I haven’t said before? What do you want me to play That I haven’t played before? So if you want a new song but you think there’s something wrong Do you come knocking on my door? So here’s another song, I hope you sing along I give it to you forever more Verse 2: And so she said to me You must be tired boy I suppose it’s been a while Since you’ve used your voice At least you’ve managed to Give me another song I suppose it just goes to show There was nothing really wrong.
Scared 02:46
Verse 1: You don’t really look the same As you did the other day When I saw you You just looked so scared I told you to relax, it’s not that bad You’ll get nowhere with a face like that When I saw you You just looked so scared Chorus: Looked so scared of me Looked so scared to be I don’t know what it is that you see There’s no need to be afraid of me When I caught you looking back I said ‘Hey you can’t do that’ When I saw you You just looked so scared Verse 2: I really don’t care what you have to say There’s a hundred million things I gotta do today When I saw you You just looked so scared Don’t you dare look at me like that ‘Cause I won’t do a thing tonight When I saw you You just looked so scared.
Too Far 03:36
Verse 1: Always seem to come too far It's just another false start Not getting getting any younger But I still got the hunger Yeah I still got the hunger Chorus: And I won't take "no" for an answer my dear I've spent too many dollars, and too many years And I don't know if you know that I've come too far to just let go Don't give up on me now my darling, my dear Verse 2: Don't know where you are I'm still searching for my stars It getting harder to care But I still care Yeah I still care,
Walking Out 05:14
Verse 1: What’s wrong with that? You might find out A way, to make me stay If I leave again We night not have been Together, anyway Chorus: No sense in leaving now But I’m about to walk out Not for the first time You tried to make me stay But you couldn’t find the way So now I’m gonna walk again Verse 2: You hung me out to dry But I didn’t bother asking why ‘Cause I don’t wanna know You had the right to leave Even from me What do I know? Final chorus: No sense in leaving now But you’re about to walk out Not for the first time I tried to make you stay But I couldn’t find the way So now you’re gonna walk again.
Verse 1: I don’t need no more explanation You’re outta here without temptation To your new life against the New Jersey skyline Don’r forget what you leave behind Pre-Chorus: Don’t let me down, no don’t let me down Don’t let me down, you will cos you’re leaving town Don’t look back, no please don’t look back At me Chorus: Oh oh oh Oh oh oh Don’t forget what we begun Oh oh oh Oh oh oh What’s done is done Verse 2: I don’t need no more explanation It costs too much to be the new sensation It was fun while it lasted Now we’re just gonna have to get past it.
Verse 1: Bluebell, I know it hurts like hell When a brat like me makes you feel unwell I wish I could say I'm sorry, but I'm not You wanted to leave anyway Nobody was begging you to stay You could have left Any of the days Pre-chorus: I won't feel bad for you 'cause you just can't be true Chorus: There ain't no shame on me All the shame's on you You didn't know what to do There ain't no shame on me It's all on you Verse 2: Well, I know I hurt your feelings but you never said Now keen to show you're not right in the head I got better things to do than cry about what you said It's hardly the same as when Jimi was found dead
Verse 1: You told me you know me You’ve seen my type before You told me you owe me For that drink I got before Pre-chorus But I don’t recognise you For anything you say I must apologise to you ‘Cause I don’t know your name Verse 2: You told me you scored me You’ve held my hand before You told me you were with me When we left the disco Chorus: So you know, I’m a self-confessed bastard Sorry sweetheart, there was nothing here that could’ve last Didn’t get your number ‘cause I was never gonna call It’d be great if you could take the hint and just leave me alone. Verse 3: You told me you went home with me We got there about four You tried to get me into bed But I passed out on the floor
Verse 1: I see a girl here tonight I see her every Thursday night I’d like to tell her how I feel Can’t cos you know that’s just not me And you, you think you’re a star You can’t be you can’t play guitar You won’t catch me looking like a fool I sing in a band I’m far too cool Chorus: Oh, oh, oh to me Nothing’s as obscene As our karaoke Kings and queens Verse 2: Friday morning I’m dead at work I should have had my lesson learned Still haven’t said a thing to her Not the reason my head hurts So used to the state I’m in Know I’ll do it all again Don’t have Einstein to join in Come on down, the kids will sing
Verse 1: Well I guess I’ll see you next Tuesday I don’t see much of you anyway It’s not very often that you come down to play And when you do we don’t really have all that much to say Chorus: So I’ll see you next Tuesday Don’t say any bad words in my company I’ll see you next Tuesday I’ll say what I like at the age of twenty-three Verse 2: Well I guess I’ll see you next Tuesday Can’t say that in front of your Mam I suppose you’ll have to find another way To not say what you mean in a way she’ll understand
