Track Name: Getting My Life Back
Bring back the past, grip it so tight
Don't let it out of your sight
Standing so proud, head in the sky
One thing's the sunset don't lie

My copper-toned tongue tastes not quite right
What have I become?
That silver-edged sword, it slices through
The orange steel moon

Oh, getting my life back from you
Oh, getting my life back from you

Jet-streams of dreams, powered by love
Watch them up above
Poisoned by grief, wiser than most
It's just the looks that you boast

My copper-toned tongue tastes not quite right
What have I become?
That silver-edged sword, it slices through
The orange steel moon

Oh, getting my life back from you
Oh, getting my life back from you

Oh, getting my life back from you
Oh, getting my life back from you
Oh, getting my life back from you
Oh, getting my life back from you
Track Name: Turn The Pain Away
Wake up with a thorn in your skull
You feel a cold hand gripping your soul
I've been downright sick today

What's that lump on the side of your head?
It's like a tumour growing from the bed
I've been downright sick today

I can't turn the pain away

One more 'fore you hit the bottom
Look for the barman, you've been forgotten
Been downright sick today

I can't turn the pain away
It's like wind on a rainy day
I got nothing else to say

But I know the world ain't gonna fall apart
And I know my soul's gonna make it
And I'll end it right back at the start

All night while you toss and you turn
Enjoy the fever while you feel it burn
I've been down, downright sick today

I can't turn the pain away
It's like wind on a rainy day
I got nothing else to say

But I know the world ain't gonna fall apart
And I know my soul's gonna make it
And I'll end it right back at the start

I can't turn the pain away
It's like wind on a rainy day
I got nothing else to say

But I know the world ain't gonna fall apart
And I know my soul's gonna make it
And we'll end it right back at the start
We'll end it right back at the start
We'll end it right back at the start
We'll end it right back at the start
Track Name: Out On The Town
I woke from a dream last night
That all my tears and all my pride
Had crept away without a sound
Tommy passed the bottle down to me, to me

The drinks were cold, the bars were warm
The acts of friendship we performed
They bonded us, so it appeared
Forged of love and built of years our chains, our chains

We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn
We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn

Lately I've been feeling though
The things that we all used to know
And count upon have gone away
See the night give way to day, it glowed, it glowed

Now I look around the room and
Realise what we once assumed
Would always stay had slowly changed
Faces friendly now are strange to me, to me

We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn
We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn

I was just a face in the crowd
I was just a face in the crowd
I was just a face in the crowd
(We went out on the town and we sang to the sky come the dawn)
I was just a face in the crowd
(We went out on the town and we sang to the sky come the dawn)
In the crowd, in the crowd
(Come the dawn, come the dawn)

I woke from a dream last night
And gathered up my wounded pride
To creep away without a sound
Tommy brings the van around for me, oh for me

We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn
We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn
We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky come the dawn, come the dawn
We went out on the town
And we sang to the sky
Track Name: You're Not Alone
Looking back in time it's clear there's nothing left to do
You'll always be a part of me as I will be for you
But you don't want the things you have until you let them go
And I would ask you please to tell me something I don't know. Singing--

You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone

Broken-hearted troubadours sing ballads in the streets
Their lives are written in the tears that rest upon their cheeks
And they say love is just for fools who like their dying slow
But you just shake your head, say 'Tell me something I don't know'. Singing--

You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone

Watch it on your TV screens and wring it from your hands
The wasted youth and blackened gold that burn in foreign lands
But the house on the hill is built on generations' bones
And people roll their eyes say 'Tell me something I don't know'. Singing--

You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone

And it gets hard when you are down to look them in the eye
If they could see inside our hearts then they might be surprised
And everyone’s still talking, I won't interrupt the flow
But I'm still begging baby, tell me something I don't know. Singing--

You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not

You're not alone, no you're not, you're not alone. Singing--
You're not alone, no you’re not, you’re not alone
Track Name: Where Do You Go To?
Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go to?

Out on the town, I feel like I'm drunk as a skunk
Too many pints, I know that all my spirits are sunk
Oh no, I think I've had enough tonight
Oh no, I really don't want to fight

Leave me alone, I'm gonna tell you where to go
Leave me alone, I'm gonna tell you where to go

Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go to?

Out with my friends, we're bouncing with the beat of the drum
Up to no good, and hope the morning never comes
Oh no, I think I've had enough tonight
Oh no, I really don't want to fight

Leave me alone, I'm gonna tell you where to go
Leave me alone, I'm gonna tell you where to go

Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go to?

Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go to?
Oh, where do you go?
Oh, where do you go?
