One of Those Days H&S Owens I don’t wanna get up and go to work Brush my teeth and iron my shirt Sit in traffic waiting for the lights to change I don’t wanna spend the day doing stuff I hate Getting in early and going home late Watching time tick slowly down the drain It’s one of those days when I wake up tired One of those days when I could get fired One of those days when nothing is gonna go right One of those days when I can’t think straight One of those days when I’m gonna be late One of those days after one of those nights I’m doing a job that’s killing my soul On a runaway train that’s outta control And I’m no longer where I wanna be I’m pushing a pen ‘til the work gets done Biting my lip and holding my tongue It’s eating me up and there’s nothing left of me CHORUS We could lie on the beach at North Bondi Staring up at the clear blue sky Spend the night in a run-down cheap hotel We could shoot some pool, drink some beer Come on, baby, let’s get outta here Ring the boss and tell ‘em they can go to hell CHORUS

Falling Out of Love H&S Owens She’s standing on a corner beside a fancy car She’s got a smile from ear to ear and a new man on her arm She says he buys her diamonds and flowers every day They’re making wedding plans, but you know she’ll never stay Falling out of love, falling out of love She’s falling in and out of love again It’s never gonna be enough She’ll never find that perfect love And she’s falling in and out of love again She’s got too much money and too little sense Most of them are married, but it don’t make no difference She’ll win ‘em over and take ‘em for a ride And it’ll end in heartache each and every time CHORUS She’s back out on the market with that look in her eye She’s got a taste for fresh-caught love and a thousand reasons why She’s traded last year’s model and bought a brand new dress She can afford to pick and choose and she’ll only have the best CHORUS

Save a Little Love H&S Owens The wind’s been blowin’ strong All night since you’ve been gone You said you wouldn’t be too long But I know differently ‘Cause when you have to go away I lose another day There’s so much that I want to say But it just has to keep Every time the telephone rings I know it’s gonna be something Someone needs you more than me And I’m on my own again But don’t forget to save a little love for me I’m not the possessive kind I don’t wanna rule your mind I won’t take all your time ‘Cause that’s not what I need There’s things that you gotta do You told me when I first met you But baby if you only knew What that does to me CHORUS

It Would Be Easier H&S Owens It would be easier fallin’ off a mountain top It would be easier to keep on drinkin’ ‘til I drop It would be easier confessing each and every sin It would be easier than seein’ her again There’s a cure for loneliness they say But people lose the battle every day I’ve tried every remedy around But your love is the only one I’ve found It would be easier givin’ up my cigarettes It would be easier ignoring all of my regrets It would be easier knowin’ that I’ve lost a friend It would be easier than seein’ her again I’ve tried hard to leave it all behind But nothin’ seems to ease my state of mind Someone please keep me away from you I’m afraid of what I’m gonna do It would be easier losin’ all my hard-earned pay It would be easier drivin’ home the other way It would be easier admitting that I just can’t win It would be easier than seein’ her again

Valentine’s Day H & S Owens I’m thinking of you on Valentine’s Day All on your own and so far away I wish I could be close by your side On Valentine’s Day I wish I could make the pain go away I wish I had words, something to say I wish I could make the sun shine for you On Valentine’s Day ‘Cause if you don’t have your own Valentine You just want to leave the whole thing behind You don’t want to think ‘bout what you once had Now that it’s gone… I know that the storm will pass by your door And you’ll find someone to love you once more But until then, it’s gonna be hard On Valentine’s Day ‘Cause if you don’t have your own Valentine You just want to leave the whole thing behind You don’t want to think ‘bout what you once had Now that it’s gone… I know that you’re sad, I know that you’re blue I’ve got some idea of what you’re going through ‘Cause I’ve been there, too, baby like you On Valentine’s Day

45 Going On 21 H&S Owens My engine's revved up and I'm ready to roll There's a fire burning down in my soul Ain't nothin' in the world gonna keep us apart I've got a pistol in my pocket and a hungry heart Well, the hands of the clock may be unkind But at the end of the day, it's a state of mind Right now I feel like I've just begun I'm 45 goin' on 21... I've earned every line that's on my face Battle scars of the human race But there's no way, buddy, that I'm over the hill I'm standin' on top and I'm runnin' still CHORUS Now don't go sayin' that I'm out of touch That way of thinkin' don't mean too much Though time may not be on my side Got nothin' on me that I wanna hide CHORUS

Blacker Than Blue H & S Owens I’ve closed my eyes to things I didn’t want to see So I could view the world the way I wanted things to be I never saw it comin’, ‘til after it was gone Now it’s too late for lookin’ back and too soon for movin’ on Have you ever had the feelin’ that your world was fallin’ down? Have you ever called out into the night, but there’s nobody around? I’m blacker than blue, blacker than blue And I know I’ll never be the same again… I put all my faith in love and left no room for doubt I thought that it would be enough, but that’s what caught me out ‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever, no matter what they say And there’s no foolproof guarantee at the end of each day CHORUS I’ve turned my back on reason, I’ve trusted for too long Now I’m beating myself up good, because I know where I went wrong But every time it happens, I’m no wiser in the end Chances are it’s the way I’m made and I’ll do it all again CHORUS

Maggie 03:16
Maggie H&S Owens Maggie’s on the ferry wharf, pushing through the crowd I only know her name because she talks so very loud Shrunken eyes, aging face, rollers in her hair Cursing ‘bout something as she searches for the fare The ferry bangs onto the barge, the crowd is piling in Maggie huddles in her coat, it’s brown and wearing thin She shuffles up the gangplank, counting as she goes Pacing up and pacing down, warding off her foes Take care or they will get you, they’re after me you know I spoke to the Prime Minister and tried to tell him so Police force and the military have all been paid a fee But I got in touch with God and he is gonna pray for me Maggie’s on the ferry boat, tapping with her feet They’re poisoning the air we breathe and plotting our defeat There’s spies out in the harbour, they’ve come to get the Queen Training their torpedoes as they watch from submarines CHORUS Maggie’s on the gangplank, she’s waving Bob goodbye He’s captain of the ferry boat and knows about the spies She moves along the ferry wharf, pushing through the crowd And I only know her name because she talks so very loud CHORUS

Too Late To Cry H&S Owens It’s been so long, since we got on So long, I can hardly recall What is was we shared How we could have cared Now I can’t find anything at all And I know it’s too late, too late to cry No need to lie, so I’ll say goodbye ‘Cause I know it’s too late, yes I know it’s too late Too late to cry You try for all those years, shed so many tears And yet you keep on going back again You scream and you shout ‘Til you’re all burned out Then you know you’ve finally reached the end CHORUS You want to make it good You always thought you could But somewhere down the road you lose your way And when love goes wrong, life still goes on ‘Cause hearts get broken every day CHORUS

O.C.D. 03:27
O.C.D. H&S Owens For thirteen years this tune's been goin’ round and round inside of my head Can't turn it off, can't tune it out, gotta learn to live with it instead It's wrecked my life, I've lost my wife, it's driven all my friends away I've tried to tell them how it is, now they all think that I'm insane... I started counting, tapping palings every time I got to ten Step on a crack and I'd go back and have to start all over again Obsession one, possession two, confession three will make it right Is there someone, something to do, deliver me from this dark night? Sometimes it's just the merest whisper in the reaches of my mind And for a moment I believe that I can leave it all behind But just by thinking, I have given it attention and it breathes My Frankenstein is marking time, a parasite inside of me... The morning glistens on the water over oceans that don't sleep My Lorelei still wailing softly from an island where we meet Obsession one, possession two, confession three will make it right Is there someone, something to do, deliver me from this dark night?

Lonely In Love H & S Owens I've got four walls around me and a roof above my bed A fire that keeps on burnin' and a pillow for my head I've got a job that pays the rent, but it's not enough 'Cause I'm lonely in love I'm so lonely in love Oh so lonely in love Now I know how lonely a lonely heart can be, 'Cause I'm lonely in love I've said my share of crazy things I didn't really mean Watched you as you walked away and slammed the back door screen Left you in the darkness when the goin' got too rough Now I'm lonely in love CHORUS I've got friends who have stood by me no matter what I've done And those who I can call on when I need someone But as I lie here all alone I know that it's not enough 'Cause I'm lonely in love CHORUS
