Track Name: Can't keep a bad man down
She and I were friends but by an act of fate
We got a bit too close, that was my mistake.
I was not looking for love but love was what I found,
You can lead a horse to water but you can't keep a bad man down.

She had left her man and I was on the shelf.
We just could not help it, or so we told ourselves,
We were not meant to be together, washed up in the lost and founds.
You can lead a horse to water but you can't keep a bad man down.

You can't keep a bad man down, you can't keep a bad man down
You can't keep a bad man down, you can't keep a bad man down
I was not looking for love but love was what I found,
You can lead a horse to water but you can't keep a bad man down.

She just looked so sad and so for heaven's sake
I just had to hold her hand and that was my mistake
I was not looking for love but love was what I found,
You can lead a horse to water but you can't keep a bad man down.

You can't keep a bad man down, you can't keep a bad man down
You can't keep a bad man down, you can't keep a bad man down
Track Name: Gotta be with me
She's dressed to kill she's my dream lover,
I try to stay cool but she blows my cover.
Shame she won't keep her eyes to herself,
Does my dream lover love somebody else?
I try to stay close but she will insist
When we go out it's like I don't exist.
She flirts with the men, flirts with the girls,
I can't tell you what she does it would make your hair curl!

Cool it, cool it now baby,
Cool it, cool it now baby,
There might be many many fish in the sea,
But you got to be with me when you're with me.

You gotta be with me when you're with me.
I give you lots of space but that don't mean you're free.
I don't ask much but I do expect
That the girl I'm with give me some respect.
Because I could go out I could let my eyes wander,
If it's good for the goose it's good for the gander.
I could look up some of my old flames,
But I wouldn't play them silly games.
Track Name: I don't belong
Are you looking at me? Tell me now what do you see.
I can't help it that my skin is brown.
I'm not one of them, but I'm still around.

By the look in their eyes, I can feel how they despise
That mix of light and darkness in my soul
I'm not one of them, I just don't belong.

I don't belong round here, I don't belong over there
I don't belong not anywhere.
I can't go back to where I'm from I just don't belong.

Is the glass half empty or is the glass half full.
Am I half a man or maybe half a fool?
I'm always half way wrong I guess I don't belong.

I'm the black sheep of the flock, between a hard place and a rock.
No matter who I'm with I just don't fit in.
I was never a bundle of joy, I was the wage of sin.

I don't belong round here, I don't belong over there
I don't belong not anywhere.
I can't go back to where I'm from I just don't belong.
Track Name: Catch that train
When I moved in she moved out of the zone.
When I moved in she moved out of the zone.
When I'm with her I feel like I'm on my own.

Three months later I'm all skin and bone.
Three months later I'm all skin and bone.
When I'm with her I wish I was on my own.

I'm going to catch that train and Ginny don't you stand in my way.
I'm going to catch that train and Ginny don't you stand in my way.
I won't stay round here not for one more single day.

We don't do much we just sit around and moan.
We don't do much we just sit around and moan.
When I'm with her I feel like I'm on my own.

Three months later I'm all skin and bone.
Three months later I'm all skin and bone.
When I'm with her I wish I was on my own.
Track Name: Prodigal Son
Your renegade's coming back, cut me a little slack.
Your renegade's coming back, cut me a little slack.
Raise a glass for the Prodigal Son.

I know it's been a long time, could we talk for a little while?
I know it's been a long time, could we talk for a little while?
One more chance for the Prodigal Son.

The world held out her arms to me so off I go to ride the breeze,
I dropped everything and I dropped everyone
Could there be a way back for the Prodigal Son?

Your renegade's coming back, could you cut me a little slack.
Your renegade's coming back, cut me a little slack.
One more chance for the Prodigal Son.
One more chance for the Prodigal Son.
One more chance for the Prodigal Son.
Track Name: You win I lose
When I walk in through my front door I want to go back out,
Because I feel like I've said something wrong before I make a sound.
You look down upon me from the moral high ground.
You win, you win, I loose.

You criticise me daily like you wish I was someone else,
I can not keep you in style 'cause I don't have the wealth.
Why do I feel like I have to justify myself?
You win, you win, I loose.

Why can't you let sleeping dogs lie?
Why can't you let me keep some of my pride?
Don't you know how to compromise?
You win, you win, I loose.

We can't talk about us without you getting upset.
If I open my mouth it feels like Russian Roulette.
So I will not say nothing, I think that is my best bet,
You win, you win, I loose.

Do you want me to stay? Or maybe I should go.
Because I am a mere sinner while you're pure as the driven snow,
No I'm patronising you, I'd just really like to know
Must you win? Must you win? Then I'll loose.

Why can't you let sleeping dogs lie?
Why can't you let me keep some of my pride?
Don't you know how to compromise?
You win, you win, I loose.
