All of those women Waiting in the line If you’re head is swimming Baby so is mine Let me go Oh do you really know How I feel Oh do you really know How I feel All of those men Waiting around to die If your heart is aching Baby so is mine Let me go Oh do you really know How I feel Oh do you really know How I feel All of those women Waiting in the line If you’re head is swimming Baby so is mine Let me go Oh do you really know How I feel Oh do you really know How I feel All of those men Waiting around to die If your heart is aching You can have mine Let me go Oh do you really know How I feel Oh do you really know How I feel

Hedy Lamarr 03:54
Spy the lazy silhouette of my man Come down here, light my cigarette I don’t give a damn Just one more final request before I fade Bring me black coffee I don’t wanna sleep for a hundred years Bring me black coffee I don’t wanna sleep again Spend my days hunting down your old address Nights watching you from afar If I had brains, I’d get out of this town Honey, I ain’t no Hedy Lamarr Bring me black coffee I don’t wanna sleep for a hundred years Bring me black coffee I don’t wanna sleep again Bring me black coffee I don’t wanna sleep for a hundred years Bring me black coffee I don’t wanna sleep again

Magnetic Joy 02:46
Magnetic joy Electrify me In my bones In my blood Hear it comes All I want is a radio All I want is a radio There was a time It was all You could want Now they own Every one That I’ve got All I want is a radio All I want is a radio Over the airwaves Under my skin

Lay your flowers on the grave It’s getting pretty late Despite my effort I still don’t like this place How low can you go? Til you block out the light? You buried me here in a red dress On a warm Saturday night Arms outstretched While you cry crocodile I’m half dead But I still can force a smile It’s hard to be hearted The way that we parted Can’t keep the beat anymore Was my heart still beating How can you be sure? You lonely hearts killer Kill what my hearts for How low can you go? Til you block out the night? I’m telling you honey It cuts like a knife Arms outstretched While you cry crocodile I’m half dead But I still can force a smile It’s hard to be hearted The way that we parted Can’t keep the beat anymore Don’t it cut like a knife? One more Saturday night

Strays 04:01
You can watch me day + night Take my money and take away my fight It don’t mean that you have even crossed my mind I'll tell you what I’ve been running since Heaven knows when Put my mind to the grindstone again It don’t mean that I couldn’t use a friend I'll tell you what Strays Let me wander tonight Follow the light of the highway back to my favorite dive Strange Stranger tonight Let the blue ride in beside silvery light Don’t fuck with me tonight I’m not from these parts It don’t mean that I’ve got a broken heart I'll tell you what Strays Let me wander tonight Follow the light of the highway back to my favorite dive Strange Stranger tonight Let the blue ride in beside silvery light

In the heart of the desert Down in the valley below You never know what you might find And I think I saw you somewhere Somewhere in my past In the heart of the desert In the heart of the desert Down in the valley below I don't think I owe you anything And I think I saw you somewhere Somewhere in my past In the heart of the desert

Wild Unknown 03:39
Already on the outside Of what I wished and what it was Can I get back on your mind Where the wild flowers sit But I don’t know How far my heart could go Who cares if I fall apart ‘Cause at least I made some noise And I loved you with my little heart And I loved you more Duet: Took the long way back home On the Greyhound again Lean my head against the glass She said you've got nothing nice to sing And I don’t know How far my heart could go Who cares if I fall apart ‘Cause at least I made some noise And I loved you with my dirty heart And I loved you more Who cares if we fall apart ‘Cause at least we made some noise And I loved you with my little heart And I loved you more

Voodoo Queen 03:18
Verse 1 Least I’ve got my lipstick on When they send out the dogs If they ever catch me again Then it’s over somehow I went looking for love Ended up on the run With a mystery man And a son of a gun Chorus Voodoo Queen I know what you mean Say it again Won’t you please help me Verse 2 Least I’ve got my records on When they turned out the lights If they ever get to my house Then it’s curtains tonight I went looking for love Ended up on the run With a mystery man And a son of a gun Voodoo Queen I know what you mean Say it again Won’t you please help me Verse 3 / Outro Least I’ve got my lipstick on When they send out the dogs If they ever catch me again Then it’s over somehow

Verse 1 Far from the horizon I'm alone on the shore In this place once familiar And I don't know it anymore Chorus And I could write you from a thousand miles away But I'm busy taking up space So haunted and tired In the ruins of The Great Verse 2 From the very beginning When the sea touched the sand Like a lover returning Again and again And I could write you from a thousand miles away But I'm busy taking up space So haunted and tired In the ruins of The Great Verse 3 Far from the horizon I'm alone and unsure Don't know where I'm headed And I don't what for
