Track Name: Never let be
Can’t you hear me singing for your love again
I got your smile in my eyes but ain’t gonna make it today
Why did you let your voice linger in my head ?
Why, if you’re not even walking down my way

When you looked at me i always tried to be okay
When you were next to me you always made me feel that way
You said i was good to you now you just push me away
If there’s a way is it the way to go away this way today ?

I could be just what you wanted , but i was not on time
You might wait and see , but you never let be

You got what you needed , but not what you wanted
Without even knowing you gave so much to me
I hope that you’ll see , what you have to see
And i hope real bad that you miss making love with me

Can’t you hear me singing for your love again
Can’t you see that i want you to walk my way
You said i was good to you but now you just push me away
If there’s a way is it the way to go away this way today
Track Name: Magic-Drift-In-Mid-Air
I got one main attraction, got lots of expectations
I'd love to take you there, magic drift in mid-air

I hate going there alone , so why don't you come with me?
Let's both jump on a flight to magic drift in mid-air

I'd like to take you out, show you what it's all about,
Fall like the setting sun just for fun

There's a lady dressed in white , once I saw her dressed in red
She's taking me away , magic drift in bed

She's calling me darling, and giving me wings ,
I can feel her heart burning , magic drift in mid dream

So why don't you come with me , then you'll see
Just grab your parachute and jump for good

I have one main attraction, got lots of expectations
I got one main attraction, got lots of expectations
Track Name: Going down and writing songs
Have you got something else to say, have you got another game to play if you come along you will find me going down and writing songs

Should i drop down on my knees , for someone i use to hang out with my drunken temper is getting strong , going down and writing songs

I’m only good at , i’m only good at going down and writing songs

Sounds like a farewell to someone who knows you well

I’m only good at going down and writing songs
Track Name: Come around
Everybody’s leaving town, everybody’s going away
Everybody’s let me down , I might be the only one to stay

With a lot to drink , a girl to forget and a book i haven’t started yet
Won’t you

Come around now, come around now come around
To make sure i don’t feel alone anymore
Won’t you come around now come around now come around
I would have a hand to hold tonight

There’s an old tired bum down the street , sharing his drinks and telling stories
He said, stop thinking ‘bout the people that don’t think of you ,
Stop dreaming of something that can’t be true
But if you

Come around now, come around now come around
To make sure i don’t feel alone anymore
Won’t you come around now come around now come around
I would have a hand to hold tonight
Track Name: I saw a man beat a woman
I saw a man beat a woman and it's bringing me down
Ain’t got no words to explain how much it's bringing me down
I heard it happens a lot but never seen it for real
Can't get it out of my mind , I’m wondering how does she feel ?

I saw a man beat a woman and it's bringing me down
Ain’t got no words to explain how much it's bringing me down

In a lane where no one goes she was weeping out loud
And the bastard two times bigger kept on striking her down
Heroic deeds, honestly, did not cross my mind
How I wish I was a hero I’d ‘ve kicked him outta town

I saw a man beat a woman and it's bringing me down
Ain’t got no words to explain how much it's bringing me down

He was big, I was drunk he was mad, I was stoned
But I stood my ground until he left her alone
She just couldn’t stop crying so I gave her my arm
I never knew that anger could lead us so far
Track Name: When the high goes down
I do want this to be defined , it’s not only about being intertwined
I simply saw you in the dark , so i keep my feelings out of my heart

When sun comes up , the high goes down

Even though I’m bad , and you’re good , i know some of you have understood
Tomorrow you’ll be on another shore , i’ll be somebody you’ve been with before

When the sun comes up the high goes down

I’m not saying i’ll keep it as a dream , you don’t know what’s waiting downstream
Track Name: Cool drink
Gimme a cool drink , i think i got a thirst , a small one or a big size my three lousy dimes will be my ceiling price , so gimme a cool drink
Had a lot of trouble getting paid again

Gimme a cool drink i got a noise in my head, a bad taste in my mouth and with very , very little cash i got to hit the road down south, so gimme a cool drink all i want is a small sip with a big hit

Gimme a cool drink and show me the way, my babe she was with me , now she’s gone to the USA so gimme a cool drink , she kicked my heart around
Track Name: Back to my hometown
It’s a road I know , a place I used to go
Just to hang around on the edge of town

Guess i’ll be back in my hometown tonight

It’s good to be back home , it’s good to see you all
Me and my guitar , we’re gonna hit the bars

Guess i’ll be back in my hometown tonight
Guess i’ll be back in my hometown tonight

I’m a long gone man , in my hometown land
I’ll try to make it shorter next time

Guess i’ll be back in my hometown tonight
Guess i’ll be back in my hometown tonight
Guess i’ll be back in my hometown tonight
Guess i’ll be back in Nantes tonight
Track Name: Make my day
It’s the changing of the season , got to find myself a reason to stay around
I’m getting lazy that’s for sure and it makes me insecure, won’t you take me out
These little lines i wrote , all buried in my coat , looking around
Sitting down on a terrace while everybody got shit faced , guess i never found my place

But if you come around and smile if you try to drive me wild ,
you’ll make my day
Yeah if you come around and smile if you try to get me high ,
you’ll make my day ,
Did you ever look back

I’ve been running out of money i’ve been running out of time , now i’m running out of you , one more time i dreamed of you one more time you fill my head girl how to make it true

It’s the changing of season i’m still crying for you woman , i’m down on my knees , i’m getting cold on this terace i’m getting cold and feel alone , girl i’m going home
Track Name: Rocking the bar
She’s such a good looking girl, she makes everyone shiver
When she’s singing in my ear, she’s so divine,
One day I’m gonna make her mine
She holds out a guitar , so we can rock the bar,
Makes everybody want more
Baby we are rocking the bar

She has a beautiful name, I’ve never heard before,
Makes me yearn for fame, makes me loose my speech,
That makes her so out of reach
She’s got a handsome man, who could be my friend,
Just wanna play the guitar and keep on rocking the bar

I’m gonna get lost , I’m gonna get lost looking for her love
I shiver in the wind, I’m moved by the wind,
Like the last leaf on a dying tree

My heart hops and bleeds when she’s in front of me,
She grabs my fingers gently,
She’s in a hurry, it’s alright, I know I’m gonna make it home tonight
I know she’s gonna hurt me, and cover up my eyes,
I’m gonna love her blindly
And play more guitar
Track Name: Silent walker
I’m the silent walker in a quiet town,
not talkin’ just walkin’ hanging around
I’m the silent dreamer , dreaming makes no sound
Quite homesick , mostly lovesick , turning around

A cigarette to burn , and so much to learn
I’m tired of reading my mind , trading dollars for dimes
It’s getting late , alright

I’m the silent walker in a quiet town,
not talkin’ just walkin’ hanging around
I’m the silent dreamer , dreaming makes no sound
Quite homesick , mostly lovesick , turning around
Track Name: When i'm gone
Oh, you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
Oh, and be happy I’m around
I hope you’re feeling blue
Without me around you
I hope you realize you have to apologize
Track Name: Soothing game
Your foosteps in the hallway , linger in my head
Is this a waste of time or me walking the line if i still got you in my mind

The sweet smell of your hair , still floating in the air , somewhere behind the coat of the cigarettes we smoked , but you don’t wanna know
What i try not to show

There’s a brown haired lover standing in my mirror , dressed up in my suit
Smoking my smokes and wearing my hat , another man i could shoot
The lover doesn’t know where his love’s going , simple as loving away
I reached for the mirror , the lover did the same , may i be so rude as to say , you don’t wanna know
What i try not to show

There it goes again another man to blame , what a soothing game

I see the lover doing tricks , i must get him out of a fix
I said don’t you fool around with me , i can shoot you and then we’ll see if you still don’t wanna know
What i try not to let go

There it goes again another man to blame , what a soothing game

In a mood of shaking action , i grabbed my rusty gun , pointed it toward his head , and everything went so fast , surprising sound of broken glass.
