Track Name: San Francisco
I went down to San Fransisco
Don’t remember going to bed that night
Laid down feeling wasted,
woke up feeling alright

Went a little further down
Down to San Berdoo
Found an old woman who told me
Everything I already knew

Went to bed feeling wasted,
Woke up feeling sane
A little more tired than yesterday
Able to take a little more pain
Come on, give me your pain

I went down to San Fran Sisco
Dont remember going to bed that night
Laid down feeling wasted,
woke up feeling alright
Track Name: Uptight
You’ve got a little bit of rhythm,
But more than enough soul.
Hips like licorice
Swingin’ round a pole

Its just a name
And I don’t wanna understand
Everything you’ve had to do
To please a man

Its just your touch
That’s got me shaking
Ease my mind baby
Come on, start making
I know you’re not
Don’t start acting uptight

There are things about you
I don’t understand
Your twist and curves
your twists and curves

There are things about you
I can’t resist
The way you move me
The way you make me twist. Oh.

Its just your touch
That’s got me shaking
Ease my mind baby
Come on, start making
I know you’re not
Don’t start acting uptight.

You can have my name
When I’m done
You can break my back
if I don’t come

Ten points for style
I give you ten for grace
Those aren’t the tens
That are keeping me in my place, oh no.

Its just your touch
That’s got me shaking
Ease my mind baby
Come on, start making
I know you’re not
Don’t start acting uptight.
Track Name: Love Don't Have to Kill
I know you’re in love babe
You can not pull the trigger
I know what you wanna do babe
But you can feel the weight around your finger

Love don’t have to kill
No it don’t have to kill

I know you’re tired babe
Your bloodshot eyes they shout about it
And I know what they’re trying to say
Your sleeping lips won’t shut up about it

Love don’t have to kill
No it don’t have to kill
But I think that it will

Its clear where we’ve ended up
Me living in your sights each day
and its clear when you take your shot
I will not move out of the way

Love don’t have to kill
No it don’t have to kill
But I think that it will
Track Name: Leave Tonight
I’ve been thinking about leaving here
I packed my bags last night
I’ve packed them a hundred times
and cancelled about a hundred flights

Maybe I’m too scared to leave
To scared to walk away
But I’m tired of waking up here
Closer to dead every day.

Pack your bags and leave tonight
Its a little bit cheaper if you take a red eye flight
I’ve found nothing but trouble and wasted time
So pack your bags and leave tonight

I started working here
Like fifteen years ago
Found no friends but the bottle, honey
You know how that goes

Now I’m losing my life
A little bit more day
My blood, sweat, and tears
In exchange for a starvation wage

Pack your bags and leave tonight
Its a little bit cheaper if you take a red eye flight
I’ve found nothing but trouble and wasted time
So pack your bags and leave tonight

Pack your bags and leave tonight
Its a little bit cheaper if you take a red eye flight
I’ve found nothing but trouble and wasted time
So pack your bags and leave tonight

You’ve got the eyes I wish I had
I can tell you’ve been around
I’ve been here since I was seventeen
Stuck in this fucking town

Please do not unpack your bags
You don’t want to stay
Like I did years ago
Only to wake up disappointed

Each and every day.

Pack your bags and leave tonight
Its a little bit cheaper if you take a red eye flight
I’ve found nothing but trouble and wasted time
So pack your bags and leave tonight
Track Name: Up the Road
Look at you, so smug
Thinking that you'll live for ever
I'm thinking about you, too much
And I think you'll probably live forever

Because you don't want to
Go on, move yourself a little further down the road
Move on, what you'll find up there not even your mother knows

I used to listen to you talk and it made me mad
Until I got used to your voice, and then it only made me sad
People in Seattle get used to the rain
You can try a little harder to get use to the pain

Because you don't want to
Go on, move yourself a little further down the road
Move on, what you'll find up there not even your mother knows

Yeah I'm scared too, but not as scared as you
You're a mighty big man who forgot how to use his hands
Except to cover his eyes, and block out his life

Your life, when you find it
Then you have what you need
Your reason to be here,
When you find it that's when you have to leave

Because you don't want to
Go on, move yourself a little further down the road
Move on, what you'll find up there not even your mother knows
Track Name: Bad Luck
I've got an A frame ladder, I walk under every day.
When I cross the street, black cats get outta my way.
I Don't think about dying, god can't rid of me.
Let me slip inside, every inch of my misery

You can call me bad luck, but trouble is my name.
I know you don't want me here, but I'm coming in, anyway.

Don't throw salt over your shoulder, I don't bother with that.
If your banks roll's fat you can slip me for a second but I'll be back
You can try to skip me, jump over number 13
When I have to count by evens I get even more mean.

I'm bad luck, and trouble is my middle name
I know You don't want me here, but I'm coming in, anyway

24 hours I'm working, 7 days a week.
You'd be a bad dude too, with the hours I keep.

For what you consider bad luck Someone else might run a mile
I gave half your shit to your ex wife And her new man had a great big smile

I'm bad luck, and trouble is my middle name
I know I'm not welcome here, but I'm coming in anyway
Track Name: Maybe
Little girl I’ve known you your whole life
Little girl I’ve known you your whole life
Never listened to me or asked me twice

Start your barking as soon as I get home
Start your barking as soon as I get home
Don’t stop barking until you get a bone

Little girl, you know just what to do
Little girl, you know just what to do
Wag your tail and I fall more in love,
Wag your tail and I fall more in love,
Wag your tail and I fall more in love with you.
Track Name: When the World Stops Turning
When I stop loving you
Will be the day the sun refuses to shine
I don’t want to be above ground, girl
Without you in my life

When the world stops turning
I’ll stop burning
For you

Every morning
you are the first woman that I see
Yes and every night
You are the only one in my dreams

When the world stops turning
I’ll stop burning
For you

When I do you wrong
Girl, like you know I’m bound to do
I will beg and plead
On a bended knee
Oh darling just to keep you

When you do me wrong
I won’t get mad with you
What I’m trying to say, baby
I love you

When I do you wrong
Girl, like you know I’m bound to do
I will beg and plead
On a bended knee
Oh baby just to keep you

And when you do me wrong
I won’t get mad with you, no
What I’m trying to say, baby
I need you

Like the moon
Through the pines
In my darkest hour
You’ve been my guiding light.

When the world stops turning
I’ll stop burning
For you

When the world stops turning
I’ll stop burning
For you
