Diamonds

don't need diamonds in my life

dont want want want you to be my wife

oh i guess i don't need diamonds, is that alright?

you love anyone that you can

they say that she never needs a man

so i guess you don't need diamonds love

now that's too bad

for all the love we had
 

they say seasons of change

they do for you (diamonds)

so i tried to stop your lies

and you came unglued, i know you do

 

It seems you're all about yourself

your self-proclaimed love is for no one else

well i guess we don’t need diamonds love, oh well

that’s how it fell

 

they say seasons of change

they do for you (diamonds)

so i tried to stop your lies

and you came unglued, i know you

Lest We Forget

when i  predict the future it almost always is wrong
it’s the wrong approach

i'm going broke on lost bets

 

lest we forget

 

fool me once

fool me twice

i am hoping that you try

so give all ive got to learn

i cannot keep getting burned on lost bets

 

lest we forget

everybody knows

everybody knows
in your eyes it shows
you're trying hard to cope
it seems your fire, it needs a stoke

whoa whoa whoa whoa
please don't give me no more hope

i see what you see
he can't love you like me
But you just let it be
you're in love, with security

ooooh, if i knew
the trouble i'd cause you i'd probably leave you
alone, but i don't, no i, i keep up hope
that someday you will be my girl

now i'm stuck in between
is this a nightmare or is this a dream?
let me try to read, between
the lines you been feeding me

whoa whoa whoa whoa
please don't give me no more hope

now you’ve been acting coy
talkin’ ‘bout how you've been missing joy
you're at a breaking point
you might have to leave this boy

and ooooh, if i knew
the trouble i'd cause you i'd probably leave you
alone, but i don't, no i, i keep up hope
that someday you will be my girl

heart & soul

gotta heart gotta soul
and a reason that i know
i know what it all means
if i die alone, where do i go
i just want you to know

that i gave my heart and i gave all my soul
i swear to god i tried my best and i hope you know
i need you now

sometimes it feels like ive wasted my life
sometimes it feels like ive lived it right
but i sleep alone and how i loath
the thoughts of my own mind

oh i gave my heart and i gave all my soul
i swear to god i tried my best and i hope you know
i need you now

oh i gave my heart and i gave all my soul
i swear to god i tried my best and i hope you know
i need you now

moment in time

hey baby... if i offered a smile
would you offer for me to stay here for a while?
cuz if it turned out, that was the thing
i would go around wearing a smile to everything

chorus oooo's

it's the morning and we lie naked in bed
i whisper sweet little things in your ears while i cradle your head
and i ask you, to tell me a lie
you say you want to stop loving me well baby i dare you to try

cuz i don't know when i saw the sign
but i could tell by the smell and the sight and the look in your eye
cuz when you fall you fly
just for a moment, in time

chorus oooo's

can't you see, all this anger and hate
they should roll on down to hell with the myth that they call fate
cuz as it turns out, there is a plan
it’s to stay away from things that say you don’t have a hand

chorus oooo's

Too Late

I can see the pridefulness
standing in the yard
it don't have to be this way right now

so i ran out the back door
and i am not coming back
10 more years and ill think about all that
about how it’s too late
it’s too late

there's not a thing that i would change
i am not about regrets
we’re learning lessons and we ain't done just yet
But I'll come back to the house just to see how nothing's changed
Oh the world moved on but we still play these (fuckin) games
ohh but now it’s too late

It’s too late

im sorry that we struggled
And if i weren't there
i promise that it’s not because i didn't care
But now it’s too late

Oil and Gas

I see the trouble that you can create
yeah, I gave into you once and that was my mistake
but trust me now, I've learned my part

Your friends said you weren't very nice
yeah, they talked pretty terrible of you that night
but I just had to see for myself

so you wait, stay, so you can see

I asked you questions about your life
yeah, you loved to hear yourself talk it was a delight
to see how concieted you could be
you said knew people in oil and gas
and you hoped that they invited you to some big bash
so you could see how much gold, there was to dig

so you wait, stay, so you can see

I wish you could give me my time right back
yeah, I never should have meet ya but I tip my cap
You got the best out of me
If I met the devil she might look like you
a hot blonde with a fucking attitude
I hope I never see you again

so you wait, stay, so you can see - what a bitch she could be

3 x 10

it all happened
‘bout the time i hit 3 by 10
i was on my way to heaven
these problems were a mountain

where to begin?
the devil's knocking but he ain't let in
home delivery of sin, let me take my medicine
hit the road i got my problems

late at night i close my eyes
i don't like what i see
there's a monster in front of me

They said I couldn't get in
What if I am good at sneakin?
tell St Pete I'm with him
then jump the line while no one's watchin

SHHH! now the guard is back in ten
how many can we get in?
does this count as a sin if we let these ppl in? is anyone even watching?
should we risk it all for nothing?

till at night i close my eyes
i don't like what i see
there's a monster in front of me

let's say we jump this ship
but we land inside another ship
maybe you have to slip to really take a dip but is it worth the risk?
what if you miss?

I say that we stay here
We got a good thing goin
And there ain't know way of knowing if it's good once you get going better stick with what is showing or you risk the chance of blowing
This good thing you got going on, on, on

still at night i close my eyes
i don't like what i see
there's a monster in front of me

james bond

don't you tell me that i, misunderstood
don't you sell me, this bill of goods
i’m just trying to figure out, where we are
we're just trying to find our way, on a night without stars

but where are we now?
yes, where are we now?

if i go on this way, it won't be good
they say follow your dreams (joe vocal backup), i wish i could
you need money more than dreams, it's understood
i'd give it all up for one shot, you know I would

but where are we now?
yes, where are we now?

i get the feeling
that i've hit the ceiling
there must be more to life
got some work to do
gotta push on thru
gotta find the will to fight

pillar of salt

call the preacher's son
this war has begun
you know the sides
you know the price

don't you believe
in anything?
there must be something
you don't see
put your soul down
we’ll see who wears this crown

don't you look back
at this pillar of salt
you know the cost
you know the result

don't you believe
in anything?
there must be something
you don't see
put your soul down
we’ll see who wears this crown

it's late in this game
you're all out of shame
what have you done?
to get ahead of everyone

don't you believe
in anything?
there must be something
you don't see
put your soul down
we’ll see who wears this crown
