Track Name: Whiskey & Morphine
Whiskey and Morphine
have been good friends to me
But still I've been accused of keeping worse company
High times and the low times
I've seen them all before
Likely won't reach for a Bible
Until death's knocking at my door

Sister forgive me
I've had too much again
Thought I had redemption
but then the morning came creeping in

Women I've forgiven
and one's that I despise
They had one thing in common
both knew how to tell a lie

I think about the future
I fear those days won't come
Cause I've lost my heart to strangers
and now I've no one left to love

Sister forgive me
I've had too much again
Thought I had redemption
but then the morning came creeping in

Music's getting darker
women are dancing slow
the bar room's turning empty
now I've no place left to go

Sister forgive me
I've had too much again
Thought I had redemption
but then the morning came creeping in

Sister forgive me
I've had too much again
Thought I had redemption
but then the morning came creeping in
Track Name: Nowhere
Something's going on that I can't explain
something like a fever
something like a fire
burning through my veins

It seems like I may not find my way out this time
turn another corner to a dead end street
and try to run out on my mind

I gotta go
I gotta go
Nowhere

It seems like it's been so long
since I didn't have to look behind
To know where it is I came from
who's still there to call mine

Every hour of every day
like another mile away
What if the hands don't stop
and there's no time to say

that I had to go
I had to go
Nowhere

Now I'd like a little time alone
to ease my mind and try to find out
where I've gone
where I've gone

Now I know there are lessons that I've left to learn
I gotta find my way back over bridges that I've burned
so give me a direction
point me back to the road
For taking all the right turns
something I'm not often know

I don't wanna go
Don't wanna go
Nowhere

Now I'd like a little time alone
to ease my mind and try to find out
where I've gone
where I've gone
Track Name: Sweet Solution
There I've watched another year go by
One more time the Winter comes to find
I'm trying
trying to do it right

Times I've been known to run and hide
times I've known enough to say goodbye
This time I hope I do it right

How long can this go on
How long can I hold on
Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind
now I find it seems a drunk man can't decide
Can't make up my mind

One more glass of wine
one more dream
one more line about what life's done to me
who will I blame it on this time

All the mistakes
times I've been wrong
and all the wrong roads I've been down
Still I wanna turn it around

How long can this go on
How long can I hold on
Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind
now I find it seems a drunk man can't decide
Can't make up my mind

Last night suicide seemed the sweet solution in my mind
Track Name: Tomorrow
Got a story gonna tell you
if we ever find time alone
I'm trying not to hold on
to something that I know is gone
but I don't know how to let you go
I'm learning it's not yesterday anymore

Sun still rises in the morning
throws a ray across the kitchen wall
in the mirror reflection
of someone that I don't know at all anymore
Oh now since you walked out the door
I'm learning it's not yesterday anymore

Now won't you tell me
how you get along
It's something that you've learned since I've been gone
Now won't you tell me
what I've done wrong
I realize that yesterday is gone

Now won't you tell me
how you get along
It's something that you've learned since I've been gone
Now won't you tell me
what I've done wrong
I realize that yesterday is gone
Track Name: 6th Avenue
Well the sun is going down on 6th Avenue
the sky is turning red
it's tired of being blue

I've got a dollar in my pocket
gonna buy myself a coke
well the kids rat-a-tat-tat by
baseball cards in their spokes

And the churches ring their bells
and the trains they rumble by
and a single sparrow silhouette darts across the sky

There's water dripping down
from the air conditioner grate
it gets this hot and this humid
we drink cheap beer and we stay up late

The college girls down the block
are having a party again
if I get drunk enough and lonely
I'll go down and hang with them

And the churches ring their bells
and the trains they rumble by
and a single sparrow silhouette darts across the sky

Well the sun is going down on 6th Avenue
the sky is turning red
it's tired of being blue
Track Name: On My Mind
The wind is blowing cold
as far as I know
back where I'd rather be
but on a highway tonight
there's been no one for miles
just those shining eyes that stare from the side
You're on my mind

I was thinking 'bout that time
we stayed up all night
Well you were telling stories
and I was telling lies
Was trying not to show
what I'd wanted you to know
for such a long time
You've been on my mind

Then a thousand miles
and a few more days
is just a small price to pay
and everything will be alright
I try to realize what I know inside
that I
I'm on your mind

Now the miles seem so long
and the choices all seem wrong
You know I wonder
what have I done
Just remember what I said
No matter where I am
You know you're always
You're on my mind

Then a thousand miles
and a few more days
is just a small price to pay
and everything will be alright
I try to realize what I know inside
that I
I'm on your mind

You're on my mind
Track Name: 1952 Vincent Black Lightning
Said Red Molly to James that's a fine motorbike
A girl could feel special on any such like
Said James to Red Molly, my hat's off to you
It's a Vincent Black Lightning, 1952
And I've seen you at the corners and cafes it seems
Red hair and black leather, my favourite colour scheme
And he pulled her on behind
And down to Boxhill they did ride

Said James to Red Molly, here's a ring for your right hand
But I'll tell you in earnest I'm a dangerous man
I've fought with the law since I was seventeen
I robbed many a man to get my Vincent machine
Now I'm 21 years, I might make 22
And I don't mind dying, but for the love of you
And if fate should break my stride
Then I'll give you my Vincent to ride

Come down, come down, Red Molly, called Sergeant McRae
For they've taken young James Adie for armed robbery
Shotgun blast hit his chest, left nothing inside
Oh, come down, Red Molly to his dying bedside
When she came to the hospital, there wasn't much left
He was running out of road, he was running out of breath
But he smiled to see her cry
And said I'll give you my Vincent to ride

Says James, in my opinion, there's nothing in this world
Beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
Now Nortons and Indians and Greeveses won't do
They don't have a soul like a Vincent 52
He reached for her hand and he slipped her the keys
He said I've got no further use for these
I see angels on Ariels in leather and chrome
Swooping down from heaven to carry me home
And he gave her one last kiss and died
And he gave her his Vincent to ride
