Track Name: Last Night I Was a Virgin
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
Track Name: Hedy Lamarr
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
Track Name: Magnetic Joy
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
Track Name: Cry Crocodile
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
Track Name: Strays
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
Track Name: Heart of the Desert
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
Track Name: Wild Unknown
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
Track Name: Voodoo Queen
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
Track Name: Ruins of the Great
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
