Track Name: Betty
At the break of dawn
Betty woke to find her lover gone
Without a tear on her face
She set the table with his place

And asked why
"If you loved me oh so true
And like no other lover do
you say goodbye?"

Betty you're not a child
But you give the sad and sorry things a smile
Your goodness and your grace
Could put a bad man in his place

So you must wonder why
A man who loved you oh so true
And want you like no other do
Would say goodbye

Betty you did nothing wrong

Change has come
And though you're sad
What you knew is gone

At the close of the day
The moon and stars near and far
Have nothing more to say
You straighten your affairs
Make the bed
Put ribbons in your hair

And ask why
One who loved you oh so true
And like no other lover do
Would say goodbye

Betty you did nothing wrong
Oh Betty you did nothing wrong
Oh Betty
You did nothing wrong
Track Name: Show Your Love
Things have changed
The air is chilled
The sky is dark and darker still
Your pretty eyes are far away
Another world, another day

Let me kiss your reddened cheek
Take a turn at being weak
And I will simply listen to
Silence that's come over you
That's more important than what's wrong or true

And don't explain yourself
That's such a waste of time
Simple love will always trump a simple crime
Your worry, my worry
They don't count at all
Death by a thousand "buts"
How can we think so small?
I'm swallowing the ball

Come show your love again
Show your love again
Come show your love again
Come show your love again
Show your love again
Come show your love again

Can we take another chance?
To grow again our sweet romance?
I will tell the stories true
Of how I fell in love with you
And you can tell me stories too

And I won't explain myself
That's such a waste of time
Simple love will always trump a simple crime
Your worry, my worry
They don't count at all
Those sorry bricks make up
Both sides of a wall
It's time for them to fall

And I will show my love again
Show my love again
And I will show my love again
I will show my love again
Show my love again?
I will show my love again.
Track Name: Lucky 7
All the stars fell from heaven
Hearts and minds
I hoped that you'd call me
My baby's feeling indecision
I got to roll a lucky 7

I bought myself a charm
Hearts and mind
Crossed my fingers that you want me
I count the cracks when I come to see ya
Lady Luck let it be

My friends smile at me
My eyes on her
I'm a man who's worthy
Roll Lucky 7 oh Roll Lucky 7

Sixteen stars lay broken at my feet
It's a sign
I've got too many schemes
I take my problems to the man in the street
Hey says, "She's not what she seems"

I'm a poor boy and I know it's true
She's a woman of the world
Lady Chance I turn to you
I need to roll a Lucky 7

Starlight, star bright
She's the only star I see tonight
Lady Luck up in Heaven
Let me roll a Lucky 7

On these dice I place my kiss
I'm so careful what I wish
If I'd held my love like these dice
These would not be lonely nights
Track Name: Differences
You can find the differences if you will
Big and small count them and I will love you still
And you can see the demons at the bottom of the pool
But that clear water is cold and blue

And you will understand why we say and why we do
Flex that muscle till it's killing you
And you will keep a record of our past
And a map of our future while it lasts

There are tears and pain it's true
What difference does it make if I'm stuck on you
The right and wrong we do
Will only make a difference if you love me too

Hear the changes blowing in the wind
Incantations beneath the din
Wish upon the moon and keep the beast at bay
But in is out and out is in you pull what's pushed away

Dreams are the engines of what we say and do
Some are baubles and some are true
Some turn to twilight, some rise anew
The difference only matters if you love me too

There are tears and pain it's true
What difference does it make if I'm stuck on you
The right and wrong we do
Will only make a difference if you love me too

Put your ear to my chest and what do you hear?
Rhythms of everything moving everywhere
Beats and breath in waves gone astray
They wash upon other worlds a million years away

Stars have grown tired, the sea is gone
Spheres are frozen and time has finally won
And all of the differences are washed away
Till love resurrects them on yet another day

There are tears and pain it's true
What difference does it make if I'm stuck on you
The right and wrong we do
Will only make a difference if you love me too

There are tears and pain it's true
What difference does it make if I'm stuck on you
The right and wrong we do
Will only make a difference if you love me too
Track Name: By Any Other Name Is ... Sex
I read the news today
Another wall came down today
Not that one in Germany
But basically the same
And England lost its booty
To a frail Mahatma Gandi
The fight said Wilheim Reich
Was over candy... oh candy
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sweet conqueror of hearts
You always shake the world
You are a tart
And you know it smarts
And men will go to war
Don't even know who's in the war
That glory in their heart is really for
Candy...

By any other name is
By any other name is
By any other name is
By any other name is ....sex

Markets racing to the sky
Come crashing down on breathless guys
The stars still spinning round their thighs
And wonks erect bureaucracies
In the burqa of their faded jeans
Sticking to nocturnal dreams of Candy... oh candy
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sweet conqueror of hearts
You always shake the world
You are a tart
And you know it smarts
And men will go to war
Don't even know who's in the war
That glory in their heart is really for
Candy...

By any other name is
By any other name is
By any other name is
By any other name is ....sex

History is pillars up
And falling down
And up again
Round and round the world spins
Whatever comes
The fights rage on and on and on
From Washington to Babylon
Warriors right or wrong
Love candy... oh candy
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sweet conqueror of hearts
You always shake the world
You are a tart
And you know it smarts
And men will go to war
Don't even know who's in the war
That glory in their heart is really for
Candy...

By any other name is
By any other name is
By any other name is ....
Track Name: Man of Yesterday - featuring Kelly Bado
I want a man
(Who's)
Lots of fun
(Who)
Loves the world and everyone

Who
Dreams of love
(Who)
Tamed a bully
Who's not afraid of being silly

And he
Won't run away
Too many men
Do that today

And he
Not like them
Is a man
Of yesterday...

He puts his best foot forward
And when he trips
Won't despair
(Oooooooooooo......)

Won't get angry
Won't get hasty
Won't get scared

And he
Won't run away
Too many men
Do that today

And he
Not like them
Is a man
Of yesterday ....

He never lets sorrow
Cast a shadow on the world
A child's heart of forgiveness
He will always get this girl
A lover and friend ... I know how
The story ends

I want a man who
When I cry ...
Finds the hope in my eyes ....
Sees a smile
In a frown ...
Can turn a girl upside down

And he
Won't run away
Too many men
Do that today

And he
Won't run away
Too many men
Do that today

And he
Not like them
Is a man
Of yesterday
