Said it in the evening, said it in the afternoon, said I’m gonna be leaving Gonna be leaving soon, gonna be leaving Gonna be leaving soon, and the odds are even You’re gonna be leaving, gonna be leaving You’re gonna be leaving too You’re the poison in the IV / rattlin the sabre, said it wouldn’t be, Wouldn’t be easy / said it isn’t gonna be fair, Are you gonna get angry? Gonna get even? Are you gonna be leaving? Gonna be moving on, are you gonna be, gonna be gone [Odds are even] You’re gonna be leaving, the odds are even Odds are even, you’re gonna be, gonna be gone You’re gonna be moving on And the odds are even / odds are even You’re gonna be leaving, gonna be leaving Gonna be leaving soon…. Said it in the evening, said it in the afternoon

Ask me no questions and tell me no lies Thought you were different than all the other guys All I can see is the trouble in their eyes All I can see is the devil in disguise Been over and over and under and all around I was no angel but I fell for this town I gave it all of my money and all of my time It was worth every penny – every nickel and dime

Devil in the deep blue sea Bring my love back home to me Now we whisper in the pale moonlight Now we shiver in the dead of the night Devil in the deep blue sea The red sky was the death of me Now we whisper in the pale moonlight Now we shiver in the dead of the night Like Daniel in the lion’s den, singing Hallelujah, hallelujah amen Sing it once, sing it once again Sing hallelujah, hallelujah amen There’s a devil whispering back to me From the red sky and the deep blue sea Now we whisper in the pale moonlight Now we shiver in the dead of the night When the waves are high, under a stormy sky We started to dance, to the rhythm of the tide Sing hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah amen Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah amen Devil devil, again and again and again

Leningrad 03:56
Fell in love with an autocrat From the streets of Leningrad Gave him everything I had It wasn’t much at all Just wanted a pretty face A damsel in disgrace I come from a better place And I don’t have far to fall Ooh And in my hour of darkness I have often thought of you Lie awake, toss and turn the whole night through Ooh Say goodnight to the open stage Say goodnight to the empty page In the dusk of the day and age The light starts to fail And when they ask for an autograph I just had to laugh At the unreliable fact The undeniable tale Ooh And in my hour of darkness I have often thought of you Lie awake, toss and turn the whole night through Ooh

When I was young, I had a sparrow for a heart, and a redwing's eyes And I left my home made of sticks and stones from the falling skies Run, run, all the colours of the rainbow spun out, red green blue Be still my heart, don't start, don't start bleeding too When I am old would you carry my bones to the blood red sea? Don't let the earthworms and carrion crows get the best of me Green, green and red and blue were the colours no more Only beating wings, a sparrow sings and it makes my heart sore/soar

Five hundred miles on the road ahead FIve days now until I’m sleeping in my own bed I didn’t ask, I wouldn’t know Halfway to Mexico And out on the highway, the sirens moan Headlights and starry nights and I’m driving all alone Five hundred down, five hundred to go Halfway to Mexico Ooh So ask me no questions, tell me no lies Make me no promises when we make our goodbyes I wouldn’t mind if I didn’t know Halfway to mexico Ooh

UFO Song 03:27
Woke in the dead of night taken by surprise I saw a golden light fill the prairie skies I couldn’t move, I was paralyzed Out under the prairie moon, out on the vast horizon It hung like an air balloon above the herd of bison And then I saw it, rising All the nights of my youth staring at the stars I searched for a higher truth a better life on mars Couldn’t help it if I tried Couldn’t run run run and hide When I saw it, I was terrified I may be a prize fool taken for a ride But I swear by the golden rule and by my foolish pride I’d tell no word of a lie, cross my heart and hope to die I wasn’t dreaming, I was terrified

Runaway 03:09
Do you really wanna run away, run away, run away? If I were you I know I wouldn’t wanna stay If you think it’s so easy you can go ahead and try Do you really wanna say goodbye? Tell me tell me tell me tell me one thing I wanna know Do you wanna love me, do you wanna let me go? If you don’t wanna go you gotta know you oughtta stay Do you really wanna run run run run run away? Tell me tell me tell me tell me one thing I wanna know Do you wanna love me do you wanna let me go? If you don’t wanna go you oughtta know you gotta stay Do you really wanna run run run run run run run run run away?

Where will you go my darling daughter? I'm gonna live down by the water If I ever could find the time, never no reason or rhyme I’m gonna live down by the water I'm gonna send a dozen roses Down the river like baby Moses And I'll wash my tears away when I’m down in the river today I'm gonna a dozen roses, a dozen roses And who will be your one and only When the days are lost and lonely And the little blue birds of spring go down to the river to sing Who will hear their testimony? Sing a little song, darling Sing it like a little blue starling In the country or the town and for miles all around Sing a little song darling Now the days are getting hotter I'm gonna live down by the water If I ever could find the time, never no reason nor rhyme I’m gonna live down by the water Down by the water, gonna live down by the water Down by the water

Little Noise 02:58
Where do you go when the going gets tough Said you can’t get along, you can’t get enough You can try try try again, but you can’t get enough Out of the darkness and into the day You can run, run and hide you can’t get away Say try try try again, you can’t get away Somebody raise your hand Raise your voice Get a little louder Make a little noise How do you sleep with your eyes open wide Tearing at the seems, keep it all inside Try try try again, keep it all in Everybody raise your hand Raise your voice Sing it a little louder Make a little noise Get away, get away, get away, get away, get away

Oh my heart is the shape of a mountain Frozen peak, asleep in the snow With the foothills and the valleys surrounding Far, far below My blood makes the sound of the ocean Crashing waves that weep on the shore And the tides are forever in motion With nowhere to go The rain in the desert, the frost on the vine All the seasons have their reasons And I have mine My voice fills the walls of a canyon A lonesome echo, deep and low And this song is my constant companion Wherever I go And my song is the song of the highway A siren’s wail, it calls and I go Say goodbye, and I’ll be on my way When the cold north wind blows Oh my heart is the shape of a mountain Frozen peak asleep in the slow With the foothills and the valleys surrounding Far, far below
