From Cold To Colder
From cold to cold to cold to colder
I don't think it matters now
The child grows up and the rest get older
And drink each time the sun goes down

From cold to cold to cold to colder
I don't think it matters now
Child grows up - the rest get older
Figure out how it goes down
It goes down

Change will come and change will lead us
All deceives us in the dark
If They had a way to treat it
We would treat it like a spark
Like a spark

From cold to cold to cold to colder
I don't think it matters now
The Child grows up - the rest get older
Figure out how it goes down
It goes down

Go it Alone
Go it alone
Go it alone
Go it alone now baby
Go it alone

I'm a heartbeat away
From thinkin' of a reason to leave you
I'm a heart beat away
From thinkin' of a reason to leave you

I'm not sayin' you ever set out to break my heart
Even though that may or may not be true
I've been hurt so many times
I've had to stop and start
Now I think maybe I have a clue

Go it alone
Go it alone
Go it alone now baby
Go it alone

I'm a heartbeat away
From thinkin' of a reason to leave you

Let The Madness Begin
I don't care anymore
I have unlocked the door
So you can come in and be my friend
If you will
Don't mind the spills
I can get refills

Now you’re all by yourself
On the road to poor health
Drinkin’ every day and night
Well you’re gonna go blind
But you probably won’t mind
It was such a good time

Come on in - come on in
Let the madness begin
You won't lose, you won't win
You'll just be my friend

A Crime Never Tried
It's a crime - a crime never tried
It's a crime - a crime never tried
When a man loses his love and loses his pride

It's a wonder it never crossed his mind
It's a wonder it never crossed his mind
’Til he pulled the trigger and said goodbye

It's his callin' - his callin' to the grave
It’s his callin' - his callin' to the grave
He let all those bad memories make him a slave

Makes no sense to fret about it
Makes no sense to sit around and drink
All he can do - all he can do is think

It's a crime - a crime never tried
It's a crime - a crime never tried
When a man loses his love and loses his pride

All he can do is sit and wonder
All he can do is sit and cry
Emptyin' bottles of Blue Thunder
Until he empties his mind

It's a crime - a crime never tried
It's a crime - a crime never tried
A crime never tried . . .

Harder Than The Wind Blows
Understanding her
He's a blind man paintin' pictures
Texture, shade and hue
Each stroke a futile gesture

All this shows is
Somewhere down the road
He might have to go
Where life is so much harder
Harder than the wind blows

Partial to her words
A deaf man’s recitation
An unmetered monotone
Void of depth and passion

Now it's known
The louder the drone
Outcries forever lost
Where screams are so much louder
Louder than the wind blows

All this shows is
Somewhere down the road
He might have to go
Where life is so much harder
Harder than the wind blows
Louder than the wind blows

Do What You Do
Can you believe it - in her heart
Someone made her change her mind last night
Seemed alright until it went too far
What could be wrong with her?
That's what I'm sayin' to myself
I didn't notice I was on the shelf
Now I've found her with someone else
What could be wrong with me?

Now I see you do what you do so well
You do what you do so well
You do what you do so well
I just can't seem to get through

I didn't want to hear it from another friend
Hey buddy there you go again
Walkin' right in, wading into
What you know’s gonna be the same old thing
Why do you do it - what is wrong
That's what they ask me
I don't know what to say to them
All I feel is my world caving in

Now I see you do what you do so well
You do what you do so well
Now you do what you do so well
I just can’t seem to get through
Can't get through to you

One more drink - one more night
One more question - one more fight
One more hint
One more slight against my heart in pain
I can go back to my dreams and despair
A secret place - no one finds me there
And when I wake up in the mornin' air
Nothin's changed for me

Now you do what you do so well
You do what you do so well
Now you do what you do so well
I just can't seem to get through
Can't get through to you
Can't get through to you baby . . .

You Don’t Know Love At All
You wait and wonder just how I'll feel
You watch through windows love
Through eyes of steel
You never seem to worry about losin' me
You're always in a hurry
Somethin' I can't see
But now your mind is made up
You have to run instead of crawl

Well you don't know love, no
You don't know love at all
And you don't know me girl
I won't let you fall

You've got me answering questions
I feel a half foot tall
You have your profession
I'm up against your wall
But if you ever need someone
Who won't charge you to care
I could be that someone
If you just stand there
But now your mind is made up
You have to come instead of call

Well you don't know love, no
You don't know love at all
And you don't know me girl
I won't let you fall

No, you don't know love
You don't know love at all
And you don't know me babe
I won't let you fall

You can run, you can change
You can hide your heart
Even though you don't feel it from the start
In your mind you go back to where you belong
I know it I heard it in a song you made up
Still you have to come instead of call

Well you don't know love, no
You don't know love at all
And you don't know me girl
I won't let you fall

No, you don't know love
You don't know love at all
And you don't know me babe
I won't let you fall

You Turned On Me
When I turned to you - you turned on me
That's what I’m writin' down in this diary
Sometime in the future I'll look back and see
When I turned to you - you turned on me
When I turned to you baby you turned on me

I thought we were friends for a long, long time
Guess you changed your mind somewhere along the line
I needed understandin' - not a piece of your mind
When I turned to you - you turned on me
When I turned to you baby you turned on me

I remember my Mama told me
When I was just a young man
“Son, when it comes your time to go
You'll count your friends on one hand”
Now I'm needin’ just a little help
And boy do I ever - boy do I ever understand

When I turned to you - you turned on me
It ain't a very subtle irony
That sometime in the future I’ll look back and see
When I turned to you - you turned on me
When I turned to you baby you turned on me

Oh when I turned to you - you turned on me
So much for a friend’s reliability
And sometime in the future I'll look back and see
When I turned to you - you turned on me
When I turned to you baby you turned on me . . .

Is It All Worth That
She came back from Las Vegas
All excited about a new piece of ass
I knew that she really meant it
When she proposed a toast with her glass
Suddenly everything became real
She said she was going on
Off to a foreign country
Without worry of anything going wrong
What if something goes wrong?
Is it all worth that?
Oh yeah, is it all worth that?

She said she really loved him
When she showed her passport and time to fly
And the kids were just getting used to
The U.S. way of life
After considering all her chances
Of ever meeting another man
With that kind of money and influence you know
It must be exciting - it must be inviting
But is it all worth that? 
Oh yeah, is it all worth that?

New Things Now
She's on to new things now
I don’t have a clue
she was bein' free
I was stayin' true
She's on to new things now
I don't understand
I don't need this love
I'll be the lonely man
She's on to new things now - new things now

She's on to new men now
I can hardly walk
I can hardly feel
I can hardly talk
She's on to new men now
I don't have a chance
I don't need this love
I don't need romance
She's on to new men now - new men now

The only thing you can count on is change
Only thing you can count on is change
Only thing you can count on is change
Only thing you can count on is change

She's on to new things now
I stand here alone
I don't read the mail
I don't answer the phone
She's on to new men now
I don't have a chance
I don't need this love
I don't need romance
She's on to new things now - new things now

The only thing you can count on is change
Only thing you can count on is change
Only thing you can count on is change
Only thing you can count on is change

She's on to new things now
I don't have a clue
She was bein' free
I was stayin' true
She's on to new things now
I don't understand
I don't need this love
I'll be the lonely man
She's on to new things now - new things now
She's on to new things now - new things now
She's on to new things now . . .

Alibis
You're so cold and I'm sure you've never been told
You have this way of laying hearts on the line
And I'm sure you've done all of this before
You're used to walkin' out of people’s lives

But if you ever need me I'm right here
You have some problem I'm always near
And if you start that cryin' I'll dry your tears
You want me to listen - bend my ear
But there's just one thing darlin' I can't hear
Alibis from my lover
Alibis for each other

I'm so tired - tired of wondering if you care
Uncertain that you'll always want to be there
When I'm down - will you still want me around
Well sometimes love makes an unhappy sound

But if you ever need me I'm right here
You have some problem I'm always near
And if you start that cryin' I'll dry your tears
You want me to listen - bend my ear
But there’s just one thing darlin' I can't hear
Alibis from my lover
Alibis for each other
Alibis from my lover
Alibis for each other

You’re so cold and I'm sure you've never been told
But you have this way of laying hearts on the line

Back Seat
I'm not goin' to waste my time
In the backseat of life
No I'm not going to waste my time
In the backseat of life

Stagnant unlikelihood
Too much evil and not enough good
For an eager mind and desire for adventure
 

Older - older and bolder she gets
With a kaleidoscope caseworker in a closed ward
Singin' “No Regrets”
She says never - I promise never - never again
And the doctor believes her and says
"Paid in full on hard dues"

She’s infatuated with saloons
Turns all of this into a cartoon
With a marinated future cast in plaster
Painted powder blue

I'm not goin' to lose my mind in the backseat
I'm not going to do my lines from the backseat
I'm not going to waste my time in the backseat of life

Older - older and bolder she gets
with a kaleidoscope caseworker in a closed ward
Singin' “No Regrets”
She says never - I promise never - never again
Yeah the doctor believes her and says
"Paid in full on hard dues"

Over and Done
Day after day - they were together each day
Far beyond years 

Far beyond what tears could ever say
One day it happened when least suspected
Always happens some other way
And to somebody else with no more virtue 
Hidden away

You see she was his master of purpose
His light on the next rung
And he was just someone to love her
’Til it was over and done

Childhood returns when the time comes
To run back through the hole
No more thoughts given to the idea of growing old
With no choice at hand it's back to the demands
Placed upon them by the whole
Society destroyed their lust to wander
Leaving one place to go

You see she was his master of purpose
His light on the next rung
And he was just someone to love her
’Til it was over and done

Yeah he was just someone to love her
Til it was over and done
