a needy young man whenever i get like this

it's an awful selfish thing that i'm asking you
give up your own life and share my irrational blues

i'll be fine i'll be fine i'll be all right
i'll be fine i'll be fine i'll be all right
i'll be fine i'll be fine thank you

honey i know i'm getting better thank you for the letter
you've set your mind to leaving and i know i gave you a reason
i'm talking really fast but there's nothing i'm trying to sell
i know my recent issue drug you through the sadder side of Hell
but look i'm standing here with a smile on my face
no more excuses no more sleeping through the days
and believe it or not i got some even better news
overnight i was healed of my irrational blues

hold me real close
don't you let go

hold me real close
don't you let go

and i'll be fine i'll be fine i'll be all right
i'll be fine i'll be fine i'll be all right
i'll be fine i'll be fine i'll be all right

Track Name: Inside Out and On My Ass
Inside Out and On My Ass

when it was over it was mighty bad it was mighty bad
it was a heart attack

it was the worst damn time i ever had
i slept most nights in a garbage bag

until i lost my sight then my appetite
but i knew every fly by name

she left me inside out and on my ass
inside out and on my ass

face down in the grass
a sunburn set on both halves of my ass

it was the worst damn time a man could have
worse than a war and even worse than her dad

she left me inside out and on my ass
inside out and on my ass

she kicked me up and down up and down
then her mother well she slapped me around

and spit in my face and found another man
to take my place
Track Name: Rock n Roll Will Never Love You Like I Do
Rock n Roll Will Never Love You Like I Do

rock n roll at its best
will fuck you on the floor with a bag over your head

but he’ll never love you never love you
never love you like i do

rock n roll don’t know what he wants
so clap your hands and give him a handjob

he’ll never love you never love you
never love you like i do…

i put up with your shit you put up with mine
sometimes the best we do is separate sides

of a lonely bed two tired heads
we fall asleep but we don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t don’t find rest

rock n roll such a sexy kiss
he’ll pucker his lips and shake his hips

and take you home and let you stay all night
but your ass is out the door come the morning light

cuz he’ll never love you never love you
never love you like i do
he’ll never love you never love you
never love you like i do…

oooooooohhh oooooohhh aaaaaahhh ooohhhhhhh…(whoa hey)

he won’t ignore your morning breath
he’ll pull out every hair growing on your chest

he’s a self-made god who turns his head
when he holds you underwater till you’re born again and dead
Track Name: We're Still Gonna Be All Right
We’re Still Gonna Be All Right

so what if it’s never gonna be like it once was
so what if it’s never gonna be like it once was

you changed your hair so many times
i cried

oooooooooooooh we’re still gonna be all right
though neither of us were right
oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh we’re still gonna be all right
though neither of us were right

so what if it’s never gonna be like it once was
so what if it’s never gonna be like it once was

it’s not like we were born attached
at the heart

oooooooooooooh we’re still gonna be all right
though neither of us were right
oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh ooh oh we’re still gonna be all right
though neither of us were right
we’re right
Track Name: A Blessing I Can't Earn
A Blessing I Can’t Earn

a friend stopped by tonight and he gave me company
we didn’t do too much but it meant a lot to me
it meant a lot to me

another friend called me on the telephone
he made me feel all right and i knew i wasn’t alone
yeah i know i’m not alone

so many times i forget so many things
forget all my blessings and forget the joy they bring
forget the joy they bring

and i’ve learned (learn…)
there are some blessings i can’t earn
and i hope they come my way
and find me as i am right here and bless me anyway
bless me anyway

i think i feel like dancing
dancing with my body
dancing with your body because you make me hap—
because you make me happy

and i’ve learned (learn…)
you’re a blessing i can’t earn
can only hope and pray
that you will soon forgive me and let me bless you babe
let me bless you babe
won’t you let me bless you babe?
won’t you let me love you baby?
Track Name: Fear of Limbo
Fear of Limbo

kiss me before baby comes
let me be your one true love
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

the holidays are here again
he is learning how to stand
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

he crawls inside the Christmas tree
tips it over and looks at me
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

he claps along to a Christmas song
he laughs out loud when the chorus comes
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

you smile at me but i fear the worst
so scare my fears and quench my thirst
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

i fear we’ll lose that old desire
that raging blameless holy fire
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

so pin me down on the kitchen floor
explain yourself and make me sore
(oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

maybe i was never born to love you
at least not how you want me to
oh honey i was born to love him
to walk away would be a mortal sin
and i don’t know if we’ll make it through
but i offer all of me for all of you
cuz i could never live without him
i’d work it out with you if it cost me a limb
Track Name: Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait for Me
Wait Wait Wait Wait Wait for Me

Track Name: Our Love (Couldn't Outrun a Train)
Our Love (Couldn’t Outrun a Train)

i thought you loved me from the way ya held my face
and the way we made out like we were running a race

do you got any idea how much i loved you?
any idea at all?...

our love…
couldn’t outrun a train…
do you got any idea how much i loved you?
any idea at all?...
do you got any idea at all?
Track Name: I'm Gonna Love the Hell Out of You
I’m Gonna Love the Hell Out of You

oooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhh ahhhh oh oh…

darlin’ i turned off the burner
you left it on this morning
i almost burned my hand

most days i think i’d rather be lonely
then waiting for you to show me
you’re happy you’re finally home

and lately i’ve been spending my evenings
wondering about other women
the few that i knew before you

(ahh ahh ahh…) darlin’ i know what you must be thinking
you’d rather be some place drinking
than standing here face to face

oooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhh ahhhh oh oh…

and darlin’ i don’t mind your yellin’
most of the time it’s my fault
should probably just shut my damn mouth

but sometimes i get so damn angry
i cut the cords to the t.v.
i fire my gun at a dog

weekends i’ve been getting awful lazy
when i swallow your whiskey
i fall asleep counting the clouds

(ahh ahh ahh…) and darlin’ i know i’m hard to understand
i might even deserve a backhand
won’t you grant me some grace this time

oooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhh ahhhh oh oh…

and i’m gonna love the hell out of you
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
oh my darlin’
oh my darlin’
oh my darlin’
oh my darlin’

and you can use me anyway you want to
you can use me anyway you want to
if that’s something that you really want to do

and sometimes i like to watch you daydream
your mind staring at some morning
when you were a little girl

and lately i’ve been hoping you’re happy
hoping you’re really happy
happy when you’re alone

and darlin’ i know you got reasons to leave me
and i heard it’s not cool to sing a love song
but oh oh oh oh

(ahh ahh ahh…) and darlin’
honey what would you say to a late night?
nothing but adults and the right wine
i think that that could be nice

oooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhh ahhhh oh oh…

i’m gonna love the hell out of you
(oooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhh ahhhh oh oh)
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
(oooooohhhhhh aaaaaahhhhhh ahhhh oh oh)
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
(oooooohhhhhh…) oh my darlin’
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
(oooooohhhhhh…) oh my darlin’
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
(oooooohhhhhh…) oh my darlin’
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
(ahh ahh ahh…) if it’s the last thing i ever do
if it’s the last thing i ever do
if it’s the last thing i ever do
if it’s the last thing i ever do
i’m gonna love the hell out of you
oh my darlin’…
