Track Name: Not War
I lay awake lay awake
Sleeping alone in my bed
I lay awake lay awake
Regretting the things that I said
When I promised you how I promised you
That I'd always be there
When I promised you yes I promised you
That I really cared

I can't sleep and I can't eat
Keep thinking about you
About what went wrong oh what went wrong
I can't live without you
Want to give you the moon give you the stars
You won't let me in
You hide your heart won't show your scars
And I can't win

Well I've got hopes and I've got dreams
Of heroes and demons and horrible things
So what's wrong with me
So what's wrong with you

What you want you'll never have no more
What we were we'll never be no more
What we had you left lying on the floor
Its a two-way street our love not a war

From my bed I stare outside
At the cross on the hill
I see angels there heads bowed in prayer
Standing still
I sit up straight and think about
The state I'm in
Yes I sit up straight and think about
All my sins

Because you've got things that I know you hide
All of the pain that you carry inside

So is there more to me
So is there more to you

What you want you'll never have no more
What we were we'll never be no more
What we had you left lying on the floor
Its a two-way street our love not a war
Track Name: Letter To A Thief
Don’t know what to say to a thief
What you did to me is beyond belief
Where we go from here isn’t up to you
I feel it everyday the wound it hurts like new

You always find a way under my skin
There’s always a fight you’ve got to win
How do you make me feel so small
You’re supposed to be my friend after all

You don’t know the pain I’m feeling
You don’t care whose song you’re stealing
All your pretty words are so misleading
You’re moving on while my heart keeps bleeding

Can’t tell what’s the truth and what’s a line
One minute you’re Dr. Jekyll the next you’re Hyde
You break out into rage and jealousy
There’s no future here no remedy

Nothing you could say would change my mind
Some days I want to simply press rewind
Forget about the days we put behind us
Let’s just go our separate ways this time

You don’t know the pain I’m feeling
You don’t care whose song you’re stealing
All your pretty words are so misleading
You’re moving on while my heart keeps bleeding
Track Name: If You'll Permit Me
Did the Beatles
Ever have trouble
Writing songs about girls
Or was it second nature
Did the problems come later
Trying to convince the world

That it ain’t a bunch of lies
That I mean it oh this time
Does singing it make me a scoundrel

I ain’t no gentleman
But I never did pretend
That I didn’t feel this way about you

If you’ll permit me
I’m asking you to dance
If you can see
It in your heart to take a chance

We can be happy
You and me

Did Paul ever hope
To have John’s Yoko
Right there in his bed

Or is it wrong
To want another
Wishing they were here instead

I ain’t that sort of guy
But I’ve had you on my mind
Does that make me a scoundrel

I ain’t no gentleman
But I never did pretend
That I didn’t feel this way about you

If you’ll permit me
I’m asking you to dance
If you can see
It in your heart to take a chance

We can be happy
You and me
Track Name: Chinatown Purgatory
Let me tell you a story 'fore the memory fades
To recount the years that flew by like days
Of the time I spent in Chinatown
Wish I could say I was Dorian Grey
But in truth I felt more Kurt Cobain
Living it up just to let you down
Spent four years drifting through the pain
Like the River Styx in the pouring rain
And all the while waiting for her
Now I know my heart ain't no Fort Knox
But she found a way she broke the locks
How it went down well its all a blur

Chinatown purgatory, You've had your hold on me (for so long)
Chinatown purgatory, It's time to set me free (so go on)

I won't ask for the open seas
A chest of gold or the ocean breeze
But to say its time for a change would be my style
I chose this cell to make some noise
Paint the town just me and the boys
But I'd trade it all just to see her smile
Its time to get down from that cross
Forget the pain forget the loss
Ain't no sense in going back
Sure there were some good old times
With the pints of gin and bottles of wine
Now its time to get on track

Chinatown purgatory, You've had your hold on me (for so long)
Chinatown purgatory, It's time to set me free (so go on)

What's done is done I can't change time
And even with those regrets in my mind
You know she's right when she says to let it go
Maybe I'm just a noble fool
But I've chose to live by a simple rule
You want to ride the river you got to let it flow

Chinatown purgatory, You've had your hold on me (for so long)
Chinatown purgatory, It's time to set me free (so go on)
