Tracklist

Blush

length: 3:26


She walks by the Indian Ocean
As the sun sinks in the west
From the beach a breeze is blowing
Playing with her cotton dress
All I want, I confess
I just want to see her blush
When we kiss she tastes so salty
On her cheek and on her neck
I can't wait 'till I get with her
So I can kiss her salty breasts
All I want, I confess
I just want to see her blush
In her room there's a little window
With a view right down to the shore
When night falls she lights a candle
Oh her skin's a coat of fire!
All I want, I confess
I just want to see her blush
I just want to see her blush
All across her chest
Take off her cotton dress
I just want to see her blush

Extra Mile

length: 3:38
Just like the bee comes to the honey
You're swarming all over me
Now you got this close, eyes on the treasure
But it don't come for free
Can you go the extra mile?

So you want to jump into the ocean
Baby it's sink or swim
Can you keep your head up above the water
When the waves come crashing in?
Can you go the extra mile?

Can you stand the heat cooking in my kitchen?
Can you see this whole thing through?
Can you stand to get your hands all dirty?
That's what I want from you
Can you go the extra mile?
Can you go the extra mile?

I'll Forgive but I Won't Forget

length: 3:36
Sometimes the very best of friends just have to disagree
I've seen the very best of friends part forever bitter company
And you and I, we've had our share of ups and downs
But we've seen each other through
Though I have to say I always thought I was a better friend than you
You've let me down in so many little ways
You apologise and I always accept
'Cause I forgive but I don't forget

When you were hurt I took your pain, yeah I soaked up all your rage
And there were times you did the same for me, though you always complained
When all the others wrote you off I defended you, I stuck with you like glue
You're so generous and so completely selfish and I always kind of liked that about you
But this is one too many times you've treated me like a doormat
Oh I'll forgive but I won't forget

Dying comes at any time, living has no rules
Forgiving may get you favours but forgetting's just for fools

I can't believe she fucked you here and then fed me full of lies
Why don't I go and get her now
And you can fuck her again right before my eyes
Then you two can have each other
You deserve each other I bet
And I'll forgive but I won't forget
I won't forget
I'll forgive but I won't forget

Queen Stone

length: 3:42
She came to me without warning?
Now she's taking up all my time
It's give you can't get rid of
It’s lonesome, it's a crime

Oh Queen Stone I can't get you off of my mind

She held me with her promise?
She held me 'til the dawn?
But she stole from me this morning?
Left me shivering here all alone

Oh Queen Stone I can't get you off of my mind?
Oh Queen Stone don't it burn, burn, burn

I see her in ever shadow?
And in every darkened room?
It's a give you can't get rid of?
Now it's taking up all my time

Oh Queen Stone I can't get you off of my mind?
Oh Queen Stone don't it burn, burn, burn

Deeper Water

length: 4:26
On a crowded beach in a distant time
At the height of summer; see a boy of five
At the water's edge so nimble and free
Jumping over the ripples, looking way out to sea

Now a man comes up from amongst the throng
Takes the young boy's hand, and his hand is strong
And the child feels safe, yeah, the child feels brave
As he's carried in those arms up and over the waves

Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling him on
Let's move forward now and the child's seventeen
With a girl in the back seat, tugging at his jeans
And she knows what she wants; she guides with her hand
As a voice cries inside him: "I'm a man! I'm a man!"

Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling him on
Now the man meets a woman, unlike all the rest
He doesn't know it yet, but he's out of his depth
And he thinks he can run; it's a matter of pride
But he keeps coming back like a cork on the tide

Well the years hurry by, and the woman loves the man
Then one night in the dark she grabs hold of his hand
Says: "There, can you feel it kicking inside?"
And the man gets a shiver right up and down his spine

Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling him on
So the clock moves around, and the child is a joy
But Death doesn't care just who it destroys
Now the woamn gets sick, thins down to the bone
She says: "Where I'm going next, I'm going alone."

Deeper water, deeper water
On a distant beach, lonely and wild
At a later time, see a man and a child
And the man takes the child up into his arms
Takes her over the breakers
To where the water is calm

Deeper water, deeper water
Deeper water, calling them on

Madeleine's Song

length: 3:44
When I dream at night it's you I see walking
And in the dream I hear you laughing and talking
When I'm all alone it's you that I'm missing
When I think of fun it's you that I'm kissing
My sweet Madeleine, my sweet Madeleine
My, my Madeleine, you never let me sleep

One of these old days you'll have yourself a boyfriend
But you'll always know my love will never end
When you cry so hard I wish you'd stop sobbing
You're gonna grow up soon and just want to go shopping
My sweet Madeleine, my sweet Madeleine
My, my Madeleine, you never let me sleep

Difficult Woman

length: 4:04
A difficult woman
Sometimes hurts her friends when she don't mean to
A difficult woman
Makes it hard for the ones she loves
It's easy to do
She's had to be tough all of her life
So she's built herself a wall
She doesn't know how to trust herself
So it's hard for her to trust at all
A difficult woman needs a special kind of friend

A difficult woman
Swings between shame and pride
A difficult woman
Has strong, strong stuff deep inside
And getting to her is no easy affair
It's like working in a mine
You'd better prepare to pay the price
If it's treasure you want to find
A difficult woman needs a special kind of friend

And living with her is better and worse
Than living with anyone else
She can be cruel or so kind
Oh you go from heaven to hell
If she got what she wanted
If she got what she needed
She wouldn't be hard to understand
A difficult woman needs a special kind of man

Give in to My Love

length: 3:58
Have you heard the news of my love?
Did they send a message down
That' I'm on the march with my love?
And I'm death or glory bound
From the mountains to the marshes
My love is gaining ground
Give in to my love, give in to my love

Well I want to show you my love
It's bigger than a Cadillac
But you keep up your resistance
And you try to drive me back
I want to show you all my love
It's bigger than a Cadillac
Give in to my love, give in to my love

My love is like a drunkard
Holding up the bar
And he'll say the same thing over
And he'll fix you with his stare
You try and change the subject
But you won't escape the war
Give in to my love, give in to my love
Give in to my love, give in to my love

I've Been a Fool

length: 4:12
So you want a second chance?
You want to start again, and make everything alright.
Well I want to know
If you've changed at all.

Baby don't lie
Don't you lie to me.
What do you take me for?
I've been a fool.
Anyone can see
But I'll be your fool no more.

You've got a way of talking
Yeah you've got a style: you could sell a poor man a bottle of air.
Well I want to know
Have you changed this time?

Baby don't lie
Don't you lie to me.
I've heard it all before.
Yeah I've been a fool
Most definitely
But I'll be your fool no more.

Everybody loves ya
I still love ya
I want you back; I need you now.
But I want to know
If you've changed your spots at all.

Come on, baby don't lie
Baby don't lie
Baby don't lie
Don't you lie to me
Baby don't lie

'Cause I've been a fool (I've been a fool)
I've been a fool (I've been a fool) (Yes I really have)
I've been a fool (I've been a fool)
(I've been a fool)
I've been a fool (Fool) (Well I've really been a fool)

Anastasia Changes Her Mind

length: 3:16
Anastasia left a kiss on the mirror
And a couple of condoms by the bed
I tried to find her on her old number
But I just got her boyfriend instead
Oh it's hard, so hard
When Anastasia changes her mind

So I went back to working the quadrellas
I collected three times in a row
I swear it must have been that kiss on the mirror
That I'd touch with my lips just for luck each time I'd go
Oh it's hard, very hard
When Anastasia changes her mind

Now the numbers were my daily devotion
I was stashing big bills in the floor

Then one night at my door a commotion
Anastasia-at some ungodly hour!
I said 'Baby can I fix you a coffee
And tomorrow let me buy you a dress
Since you've been gone I got lucky'
She just nodded her head and said 'I guess'
Oh it's hard, yeah it's hard
When Anastasia changes her mind

Now 'Stacey' takes the crumbs from the table
And feeds them out back to the birds
Me, I can't even pick the daily double

Since that kiss on the mirror disappeared
Yeah it's hard, ain't it hard
When Anastasia changes her mind

California

length: 5:04
California - I can taste you even now
California - I'll get back to you somehow
I still see you in my dreams
I hear your name on every tongue
It's been so long

California - You whispered to me all last night
California - With your beauty like a knife
I can hear your siren song
Calling me back to your shore
To die once more, California

California - I took my story to the well
California - You're still eating at my soul
How I miss your greedy eyes
Our golden days, our purple nights

I'll pay the price, oooh California

Gathering Storm

length: 4:06
writer: Paul Kelly, Jex Saarelaht
I had a dream
I saw you walking down the road
In a gathering storm

Wind on the rise
A black crow was flying
You alone in a gathering storm

I wake up alone in my bed
There's nothing before my eyes
And outside the door
Only the sighing
And you out there in a gathering storm

So cover your head
Keep your eyes open
Make speed in the gathering storm

I rise up and turn on the light
Now it's shining in my window
My walls are strong
My chimney's smoking
God speed you
In the gathering storm
