Track Name: Will You Love Me Again?
Chorus
Will you love me again?
Call you my friend into your home once again
I'll give you the time of night and the time of day
will you love me again?

Verse 1
I remember that morning
Tired eyes you were yawning
As the rain came thumpin down
You shared with me a cigarette
Now It’s something that I don’t regret
But now everyday drags to long

Verse 2
Like a shower on a sunny day
Or a pearl on a ravaged bay
Love took us both, by surprise
We laughed and loved through dark and bright
Felt her breath in that morning light
Oh to look into those eyes again

Chorus
Will you love me again?
Call you my friend into your home once again
I'll give you the time of night and the time of day
Will you love me again?

Verse 3
Every blade a grass a memory
Every bird sang its melody
As I hastened up to knock on her door
Butterflies began to mumble
My knees began to crumble
As somebody said who you looking for

Verse 4
Well I got a fright I nearly died
and I let out an awful sigh
As a little boy crept up behind me
I turned to look and to my surprise
Was the flame of that morning’s eyes
And I knew it was, time to leave

Chorus
Would you love me again?
Call you my friend into my home once again
I'll give you the time of night and the time of day
will you love me again?

Bridge
Hidden in the road
Was some difference that told
It’s got me wondering why?

Chorus
Will you love me again?
Call you my friend into your home once again
I'll give you the time of night and the time of day
If I come back baby
Will you love me again?
If I come back baby
Will you love me again?
If I come back baby
Will you love me again?
Track Name: Where we last met
Verse 1
I see the place where we last met
it's one of those places I will never forget
We'd skip a stone from our Rock Throne
Two young lovers at the end of the road

Chorus
It was a arm bright Shiny day
We both sat by the river
time it flowed and rippled away
the wind it gently wispered to me

Verse 2
I shuffled up to kiss her check
I felt a lump in my throat
I could barely speak
She didnt respond she just left me to guess
I thought I made a terrible mess

Chorus
It was a warm bright shiny day
We both sat by the river
time it flowed and rippled away
the wind it gently whispered to me

Verse 3
Sometimes in life you gotta' take a chance
sometimes in life you cant find romamce
will our two paths ever cross again?
Well I've lost a love
and i've lost a friend

Chorus
It was a arm bright Shiny day
We both sat by the river
time it flowed and rippled away
the wind it gently wispered to me
Track Name: Can't Stop Playin' The Blues
Help me mama help me papa
I got a mean old woman who is trying to stop me
From walkin out my door and stomping on my floor all night

Well life was good but it spit in my face
and then it leaved without a trace
and you wonder why I'm playing the blues

Come on Tell me why I can't stop cryin'?
Tell Me, when will the world stop lying?
Tell me, why i can't stop playing these blues?

Mama said; "behind every cloud there's a brand new sun,
And behind every day, there's another one.
Don't give up boy it'll all be better someday.

Well now, life was good, but it spit in my face
and then it leaved without a trace
and you wonder why I'm playing these blues

Come on Tell me why I can't stop cryin'?
Tell Me, when will the world stop lying?
Tell me, why i can't stop playing these blues?

Track Name: Run Buddy Run
Ho wmuch more time can you buy?
How much longer until you see the light?
How much more time can you find?
if only you could rewind.

So Buddy Run
Until Your time has come
Buddy Run,
Until your time has come

Sometimes you made people cry
Sometimes you couldn't stop a lie
But I'll try to always understand
Why you keep falling out of hand

So Buddy Run
Until Your time has come
Buddy Run,
Until your time has come

I'll always see through you
your a good man deep down
I'll get them to understand
And one day you'll have the upper hand

Cause you're an honest decent man
a loving family man
Wrap your troubles up inside a box and
throw them off into the docks
and like a river you will flow
into society I know
give it time boy, You'll be alright,
Won't you give it a try?


So Buddy Run
Until Your time has come
Buddy Run,
Until your time has come
Track Name: Slapstick
Get gone she smiled
Haven't you heard the news?
You cannot chose those long time blues

Get on your style
well you cannot be
laughing all the time at your misery

It's on tonight
Get your figures right,
this mighty fight could treat our pockets right

Get over yourself
I think you need help,
your guitar aint swinging and that singing aint singing alright.

Sometimes I feel
Like theres nothing to feel
I go to work each day just to pay my bills

Sometimes I wonder
Could I change my life,
and copy all the people I admire and like

Like Chuck E Weiss
Well his life seemed kind of nice
But I think I'd lik eit if Jones picked me instead of Waits.
