Track Name: As Strange As Fiction
I thought that I could get through this
Thought that I could resist the temptation
Thought that I was strong enough to let it go
I said I wanted you to leave

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times

So now I'm acting like a fool
Tempers high, and insults flying
Done all I promised not to do
And said some things I didn't mean to

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times

So now I'm crying over you
Another thing I said I'd never do
I never missed you until you were gone
I always want what I cannot have

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times
It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times
Track Name: A Long Road (live)
It's been a long dusty road
I would have been all alone if it weren't for you
When turned round you were by my side ready to comfort me
when I was crumbling down

When I felt like hell you were holding me up
You wouldn't let me fall to the gound
You kept me strong and told me not to give up
Believe I did you kept me going on

Oh I would have been lost without you
Oh so lost without you

Thank-you for being a friend I really needed somebody back then
Thank-you for being a friend you made a difference I appreciate it

When everybody judged me by the gossip they heard
you were busy listening to music and dancing with me
It meant a lot to have somebody who cared cos nobody else seemed to care about me


Oh I would have been lost without you
Oh so lost without you

Thank-you for being a friend I really needed somebody back then
Thank-you for being a friend you really made a difference I appreciate it
Track Name: Alright (live)
She feels so lost like she don't fit in
She never found anywhere she belongs
She spent her whole life searching
but she don't know what she's searching for

It'll be alright
It'll work just fine
It'll be alright
It'll work just fine

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright


He lost the only one he loves
He said he could never love another
She is the only one he wants
but she's in love with somebody else

It'll be alright
It'll work just fine
It'll be alright
It'll work just fine

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright

It'll be okay
It'll work out in the end
It'll be alright
It'll work out in the end

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
it'll work out alright baby wait and see
it'll work out just fine you wait and see
Track Name: Grace Under Fire (live)
Looks like an angel but acts like the devil
Grace is a mood
could them blue eyes have seen more than they ever should?

Grace my angel why is life being cruel you
All the other children just torment you


Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Long blonde hair to hide that evil smile such look of innocence
but she's devil's child, oh she is devil's child

Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Grace sweet child I know you're endangered
but don't you think you should learn to love yourself
not hate yourself like you do?

Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
She is burning
Oh she is burning, burning, burning
Track Name: Because (live)
Don't blame it on my youth
Would have done anything for you
You said I was too young, well I'm 23 now
And I feel exactly the same as I did back then when I was 18, only 18


I'd walk to the other end of the earth for you
I'd cry an ocean just for you
I'd try until I had no strength
I'd do anything just for you
If only you loved me the way I loved you
If you wanted me the way I wanted you
Yeah I wanted you, really wanted you, and you alone


You said I'd have to stray
It was you though, not me
You said I'd have to play I was only 18
But now you see it wasn't me
cos I loved you
Why couldn't you love me too?
Yeah I wanted, why couldn't you want me too?


I'd walk to the other end of the earth for you
I'd cry an ocean just for you
I'd try until I had no strength
I'd do anything just for you

I'd walk to the other end of the earth for you
I'd cry an ocean just for you
I'd try until I had no strength
I'd do anything just for you

Track Name: Dancing on the tables (live)
All the groovy people standing in crowd can't believe how she swings
Such a crazy cat like I've never seen
She is a real wild thing

*CHORUS
And She'll be dancing on the tables tonight
She'll be dancing on the tables tonight
Oh She'll be dancing on the tables tonight
She'll be dancing on the tables tonight

Mona Lisa don't approve her smile is slowly gone
All the people start to drop like flies but this lady carries on

*CHORUS


Cheer up Charlie it ain't that bad there is a party going on
come on down to see her, rock n' roll

*CHORUS x2
Track Name: The Player
All my friends say you're a player and I must be a fool
for standing by and loving you
When I know you're gonna break my heart that's what players do

And in the end all the sweet words fade into little lies
I see it in your eyes you're a player through and through


And if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
Oh if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much


You're player and I'm fool
Once the hate is gone I'll forgive you
until the next time you let me down like you do
You'd think I'd learn by now but I'm just a fool
I Just can't stay angry at you even though you treat me like you do

And if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
Oh if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
oh if you are playing me don't let me know
if you are playing me don't let me know
don't let me know
don't let me know
don't let me know
