Pick me up and I will take it Pick me up and I will bleed Pick me up and I will take it A lesson for me Sell my soul and I will buy it Sell my soul and I'll behave Sell my soul and I will buy it A last mark upon my grave A last mark upon my grave I"ll be Ready When the World Stops Turning I'll be Ready When the Worlds Starts Tumbling Down I'll be Ready When your knees start shaking I'll Be Ready When the World Starts Tumbling Down Make a plate and I will eat it Make a plate and I will feed Make a plate and I will eat it A feast for my friends Straight to Hell and the world keeps going Round and round it seems to sing Straight to Hell and the world keeps going A favor for the king A favor for the king I"ll be Ready When the World Stops Turning I'll be Ready When the Worlds Starts Tumbling Down I'll be Ready When your knees start shaking I'll Be Ready When the World Starts Tumbling Down I"ll be Ready When the World Stops Turning I'll be Ready When the Worlds Starts Tumbling Down I'll be Ready When your knees start shaking I'll Be Ready When the World Starts Tumbling Down I'll be Ready I'll be Ready When the World Starts Tumbling Down

I feel your heartbeat diving Right off my feet Feel the temperature All around me And I never felt this way before And can't seem to get myself off the floor Forever hold your peace Can't get a read on you Read on you Don't you tell me up is down Can't get a read on you Well I feel the room start to stretch And I get the tingling around your neck We'll come on Forever hold your peace We'll I oh I never felt this way before And can't seem to get myself off the floor Forever hold your peace Can't get a read on you Read on you Don't you tell me up is down Can't get a read on you Oh I can feel the heartbeat in the waves As it does upon my own Feels just like yesterday Oh come on now Is it true I just can't seem To get a read on you Read on You

Let myself on the drive side Little hungry little pulverized In a field Fire burns storms in the night souls turn You've been on the mile A little While I can see it in your eyes And your smile And that part you must play Damn the night and Damn the day Darkness in your eyes Heartache no surprise Darkness in your eyes No retreat no disguise Trapt between the world I feel you coming Cuts your mind like the symmetry in a song ____side Still the other turns how can find the world burn This brand of love that you brings in tainted like a knife in a ring Darkness in your eyes Heartache no surprise Darkness in your eyes No retreat no disguise

Photographs of Johnny Cash Days begin to bleed You need someone to crucify but it ain't me Photographs upon the wall they seem to sing Memories of golden years they start to bring What haven't I done To get to you What haven't I done To get to you Write me a letter with all your goodbyes Save it for me and dry your eyes I've seen some strange things Some more in you You light up my world but is it true What haven't I done To get to you What haven't I done To get to you The Story, it is Sad But it is true What haven't I done To get to you The Gallery is brightly lit but I don't care I start to stare You see me stare What haven't I done To get to you What haven't I done To get to you Write me a letter with all your goodbyes Save it for me and dry your eyes I've seen some strange things Some more in you You light up my world but is it true What haven't I done To get to you What haven't I done To get to you The Story, it is Sad But it is true What haven't I done To get to you

Coming down a mountain Rolling down a stream I can feel something coming over me Running in the rain Running in the night Settle down now child it's going to be alright Be alright I can feel you coming on like a viber in the sand No now don't you fool me I can understand Your wrists they shine in the light Don't speak a word Be alright Flick of your wrist Shine in the light Don't speak a word it's going to be alright Hey Jealousy Put the Blame on Me Hey Jealousy And it runs through my veins like a shot to my brain I can't overcome it It's all the same Love for you is taken by the knife So cold so senseless it takes your life Girl oh girl can you hurt anymore? Seems I can't control you or myself anymore Hey Jealousy Put the Blame on Me And love for you is taken by the knife So cold so senseless it take your life Oh girl girl could you hurt anymore? Seems I can't control you or myself anymore Hey Jealousy Put the Blame on Me Hey Jealousy Put the Blame on Me Put the Blame on Me

This town can rip you up tear you down and drink your blood Fight it off break down but you can get lost in the street Walkways through true and pain hot blood disintegrates any hope you had down in your soul so come on don't hesitate What you get at the Liquorstore? Go on back and you get some more Go on back to the Liquorstore And we might let you in Make me believe the things you do to me are as real as they feel and you and me can do anything One shot to take it all don't you feel the timings right to blow the clock out of this town so come on break out the night What did you get from the Liquorstore? Go on back and you get some more Go on back to the Liquorstore And we might let you in Me the boys been waiting for Good times and dancing So go on back to the Liquorstore and we might let you in We'll let you in And one heartbeat In you Never go out alone Beating true Go on back to the Liquorstore Go on back and you get some more Go on back to the Liquorstore And we might let you in Me the boys been waiting for Good times and dancing So go on back to the Liquorstore and we might let you in We'll let you in What did you get from the Liquorstore? Go on back and you get some more Go on back to the Liquorstore And you know I'll let you in Me the boys been waiting for Good times and dancing So go on back to the Liquorstore and we might let you in We'll let you in

I'm the static I'm the name I can tell you where you want to go I'm the Geator with the Heator I'm the Voice on the rRadio I'm in your head By your bed I wake you up when it's time to go Part of your day in every way I'm the Voice on the Radio Now what's the Shoot? What's the bit? How can I get all over it? Catch me up in the middle of the night So I know So I can feel you alright I got my ear Tapped to the streets I tell you things that you ought to know Over the air I'm sent directly I'm the Voice on the Radio It's just you and me Hours ahead us I give you news and I put on a show sit back relax I'm your friend I'm the Voice on the Radio

He got his room, he got his key Some empty bags, and a place to be Boardwalk grooves and an empty seat And tattered hearts and some company Just another Off-season now, the locals start to swell The painted face she wears so well Midnight moves and a fairground ring Foxtrot dances with a camp town king Just another Just another stay Just another lonely day And it all goes so well, at midnight At the Nightbird motel Just another Just another stay Just another lonely day And it all goes so well, at midnight At the Nightbird motel And down the hall, and out in the street A shadow and a memory Boardwalk grooves and an empty seat Tattered hearts and some company Some company Some company Some company Just another Just another stay Just another lonely day And it all goes so well, at midnight At the Nightbird motel At the Nightbird motel And it all goes so well, at midnight At the Nightbird motel
