Sunday Night 04:06
Well one day when we were walking together Told me 'bout your problems and your stuff I couldn't help it but laugh, and keep it intact But you told me the feeling that you felt was rough Well I called you up on the phone And I sat down that night outside Well it hurt me to know, that you were gonna go And so I put my best in it and lied I tried to help you as best as I could Fixing up all that I probably would But things didn't well, under your spell And so it was all kept under the hood And it all fell to that Sunday Night Drinking beer and trying to keep it alright But you told me, baby, what I didn't wanna hear you say And I followed you in But you told me nothing And what I was hoping for, simply vanished away Well days passed and we were left all alone And through those early August nights I would roam And what I wanted to say was to not keep you away And hold you tight across the party foam But sooner than I thought I found it hard When my feelings had betrayed what I'd do For it was not who I thought, who would keep me happy Instead I found myself thinking of you I had to talk to somebody else For I could not longer look at you in the face I had my hopes way up high, but was looking too shy And I missed out right on my race And it all fell to that Sunday Night Drinking beer and trying to keep it alright But you told me, baby, what I didn't wanna hear you say And I followed you in But you told me nothing And what I was hoping for, simply vanished away Sometimes it's hard to let go All the things that you love so But when it all comes around it's useless to hold on and fight In case that you change your mind I'll be easy to find Sitting round here and trying to make it alright

Highway One 04:22
The night has fallen and the sky turns dark All your sorrows feel like they wanna go away They no longer want to stay Lyin' in bed in tank top and a pair of jeans I close my eyes and I feel like in an empty ride But God's always by my side I grab my guitar and I just head out The warmth of the air reflects my soul turning cold And I'm starting to feel old I get in the Saab and I turn that rusty key You get out of Rolle you feel the need to speed and run When you're driving through Highway One These bloodshot eyes keep watching me They make you feel the need to flee Head down to Churchill's I'll find what I need Chug it all down and I feel it flow to my feet The bearded man that I see everyday He looks at me like he's a little depressed Doesn't seem either too obsessed He carries two bags that seem to've been through History The look in his eyes makes me see the weary kind It turns my body blind I turn my head and I keep on headin' straight I hit the gas and I turn the radio up loud I feel the need to shout I look at the car and see the reflection in me When I get out of here'vrything will be a bunch of fun But right now I'm stuck on Highway One These bloodshot eyes keep watching me They make you feel the need to flee Head down to Churchill's I'll find what I need Chug it all down and I feel it flow to my feet

You think all about it and then stay up all night Thinking about the things that the government could do right Well don't you worry brother 'cause tomorrow they'll be gone Thinking about the future and saying that nothing will be wrong They're just, killing the working man And they're just, ruining our plans Tucking yourself in bed worrying 'bout the outer world Well come on and be happy you've only got one vote girl You're hurt about the feelings and the pas and the before But you drop the needle in the box and it'll be taken to the core Let your voice get tough (boy) Let your voice sound rough What if I tell that they're plotting a bigger war Trying to raise economic levels they're trying to raise the bar It's not as easy as it sounds, it's not as easy as it looks It's like if poor man pay rich bills or simply the banker cooks They're just trying to put us all in the cart But we are trying to take'em back to the start Let me tell you the story of what I used to be Working up my way to the top chained up but mentally free Now they put their nose in our business and they're fucking it all up And they're just sitting looking at us, and waiting there like "'Sup!" If I had the time, if I had the money If I was at their place would they still find it funny (If it) was all turned round, if it was all upside down (If) we were the boss and they were Rocked would they still let that door be locked? 'Cause everything is bound to change 'Cause it is all real strange And everything is bound to turn around So let's all pound (Come on) You think all about it and then stay up all night Trying to think about all the things that we could do right Well don't you worry brother 'cause tomorrow they'll be gone Thinking about the future and saying that nothing will be wrong They're just, killing the working man And they're just, ruining our plans

Everything 05:06
We were kids, thinking about life as just one game We never knew about love and fame Life simply passed by, and the days just went on We never soon knew it'd be gone We lived alone, never let break silent prayers I'd let myself die through those layers Let the spirit rise, and the rising sun will soon be ours We'll die together in our arms But now that you are gone, life's a bad misery It's no longer you and me I can't wait, 'till those days come back again Woh-ho Now I can't think of anything but you in life Now I can't think of what has been derived Of the words you spoke and the moves you'd floke 'Cause you're my everything Now remember those times, When we were young and the world seemed to be ours Woh-ho Full of happiness, and joy but nothing else It's all gone now Remember when we spoke, a thousand languages never got tired When we were lost when we were fired Being in a world of black and white, Turning 'em all into shades of grey Life was just a game Now the world has changed, never it'll be back again Woh-ho Running through the yard, it'll never be the same Woh-ho Now I can't think of anything but you in life Now I can't think of what has been derived Of the words you spoke and the moves you'd floke 'Cause you're my everything

I met him down on a Saturday evening, Past the mountains, outside the city Rain was pouring down, I made my way into the smoky bar It was getting late so I ordered a beer while I waited And then the lights went dim, The doors opened wide, and he was standing afar. And then I watched him play his legendary shows In the bars in the inner city, especially in the Honky Tonks And after many failed attempts, he got somewhere along the way But after years of trying hard, it would, uh, pay up any day He started calling me his Godson, Started teaching everything he'd know And he would fiddle the six-strings and I would just sit there amazed and blown And he would quote my heroes, teaching me how to rightly bluff He said, "Son, this world is rough, And if you wanna make it, you've gotta be tough." And then I watched him play his legendary shows In the bars in the inner city, especially in the Honky Tonks And after many failed attempts, he got somewhere along the way But after years of trying hard, it would, uh, pay up any day I quietly thought To keep it strong As he led me Down the road I flew back to Switzerland with a new thought on my mind I had to think about my writing and unwind And as the days grew longer, my nights started to weep Soon country music wasn't enough, I had to worry about my sleep And then I watched him play his legendary shows In the bars in the inner city, especially in the Honky Tonks And after many failed attempts, he got somewhere along the way And after years of trying hard, it would, uh, pay up any day And then I watched him play his legendary shows In the bars in the inner city, especially in the Honky Tonks And I held my head up high, knowing what he really felt As he slipped away a tear, as he achieved the best of myself And then I watched him play his legendary shows In the bars in the inner city, especially in the Honky Tonks And I held my head up high, knowing what he really felt As he slipped away a tear, as he achieved the best of myself
