Track Name: Nothing But Nice Things
WELL IT’S PROBABLY CHINESE WHISPERS BUT THEY MAKE OUT LIKE IT’S GOSPEL
WHAT STARTS OUT BEING FRIENDLY COULD SOON END UP BEING HOSTILE
THEY CAN SPOIL YOUR REPUTATION THEY CAN MAKE YOUR LIFE A DRAG
AND SPARKS WILL START A’FLYING WHEN THOSE TONGUES BEGIN TO WAG

BUT THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY CAN TURN THE TOWN AGAINST YOU
THEY COULD TEAR YOUR NAME TO BITS
BUT THEY AINT GOT THE NERVE TO CROSS YOU
NICE THINGS ARE COMING FROM EVERYONE’S LIPS
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
AND I GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY TO YOU

WELL THEY SMILE WHEN THEY MEET YOU WITH TEETH LIKE LITTLE KNIVES
YEAH THEY LAUGH AND SLAP YOU ON THE BACK BUT IT’S ALL A DISGUISE
WELL YOU THINK THAT THEY’RE BEING FRIENDLY
‘CAUSE THEY ALWAYS WANT TO LISTEN
BUT WHILE YOU TELL THEM WHAT YOU KNOW
THEY’RE JUST GATHERING AMMUNITION

THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
HYPOCRITES ARE EVERYWHERE IN ALL THOSE KIND OF PLACES
THERE’S FIVE HUNDRED PEOPLE THERE AND TWICE AS MANY FACES
BUT THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
AND I GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY TO YOU

WELL IT’S A SIN TO BEAR FALSE WITNESS IT’S A SIN TO TELL A LIE
BUT THERE WON’T BE NO FORGIVENESS BROTHER IF YOU AINT ON THEIR SIDE
THEN A STRANGER RIDES ON INTO TOWN AND STOPS THEM IN THEIR TRACKS
YEAH THEY WON’T DARE TO TRY IT ON YEAH THEY KNOW THEY MET THEIR MATCH

CAUSE THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY COULD TURN THE TOWN AGAINST YOU
THEY COULD TEAR YOUR NAME TO BITS
BUT THEY AINT GOT THE NERVE TO CROSS YOU
NICE THINGS ARE HANGING FROM EVERYONE’S LIPS
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
THEY GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT YOU
AND I GOT NOTHING BUT NICE THINGS TO SAY TO YOU
Track Name: Some People
SOME PEOPLE ARE WORKING TRYING TO MAKE A HOUSE A HOME
SOME PEOPLE DO NOTHING BUT SPIT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
WHEN YOU TALK TO A STRANGER CAN YOU LOOK THEM IN THE EYE
DO YOU DO THEM A FAVOUR OR DO YOU WALK RIGHT ON BY

I’M HEADING FOR A HIGHER GROUND WHERE THE LION AND THE LAMB LAY DOWN
NOBODY’S GONNA CHANGE MY MIND AROUND

SOME PEOPLE ARE DAMAGED THEY’RE ONLY GOING TO TREAT YOU MEAN
SOME PEOPLE WILL HELP YOU AND TREAT YOU LIKE A HUMAN BEING
I SAW A MAN ON THE CORNER SITTING UP AGAINST THE WALL
HIS HEART WAS LYING IN PIECES ALL JAGGED AND SMALL

I’M HEADING FOR A HIGHER GROUND WHERE THE LION AND THE LAMB LAY DOWN
NOBODY’S GONNA CHANGE MY MIND AROUND
I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ANOTHER LIE I’M HEADING FOR THE BY AND BY
NOBODY’S GONNA MAKE ME CHANGE MY MIND

SOME PEOPLE WILL ROB YOU WHEN YOU’RE CRAWLING ‘ROUND ON YOUR KNEES
THEY’RE BLOWING THEIR NOSES ON THE FABRIC OF SOCIETY
BUT SOME PEOPLE ARE RIGHTEOUS WITH KINDNESS IN THEIR HEARTS
THEY DON’T LOOK ANY DIFFERENT BUT INSIDE THEY’RE WORLDS APART

I’M HEADING FOR A HIGHER GROUND WHERE THE LION AND THE LAMB LAY DOWN
NOBODY’S GONNA CHANGE MY MIND AROUND
I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ANOTHER LIE I’M HEADING FOR THE BY AND BY
NOBODY’S GONNA MAKE ME CHANGE MY MIND

I’M HEADING FOR A HIGHER GROUND WHERE THE LION AND THE LAMB LAY DOWN
NOBODY’S GONNA CHANGE MY MIND AROUND

Track Name: I Told A Lie
WELL I’M SITTING IN MY ROOM WITH THE DOOR WIDE OPEN
AT THE UNIVERSITY
SUMMER TIME AND THE PLACE IS EMPTY
EXCEPT FOR ROBIN HOOD AND ME
‘CAUSE I ACTED LIKE A FOOL WHEN LAST WE PARTED
AND YOU KNOW I TOLD A LIE
I WAS WRONG AND I’M SORRY NOW I CAN’T EVEN SEE YOU
I’M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY

THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS BEST
I TOLD A LIE I MUST CONFESS
BUT I WAS ONLY TRYING TO BUY SOME TIME
YOU FIGURED OUT THE REST
I TOLD A LIE I MUST CONFESS
NEVER DECEIVE YOUR FRIENDS IT ALWAYS GETS YOU IN THE END

WELL I’M WAITING FOR SOMEONE AND I’M LOOKING FOR SOMETHING
JUST TO PASS THE TIME AWAY
IT’S A DIRTY OLD ROOM BUT I’LL BE SEEING YOU SOON
IF I CAN THINK OF WHAT I’D SAY
IF I SAID I’M COMING BACK WOULD YOU WAIT THERE FOR ME
DO I STILL PLAY ON YOUR MIND
CAN I OPEN THE DOOR OR AM I CLUTCHING AT STRAWS
HAVE I FINALY LOST THIS TIME

THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS BEST
I TOLD A LIE I MUST CONFESS
BUT I WAS ONLY TRYING TO BUY SOME TIME
YOU FIGURED OUT THE REST
I TOLD A LIE I MUST CONFESS
NEVER DECEIVE YOUR FRIENDS IT ALWAYS GETS YOU IN THE END

SUMMER TIME IS A STATE OF MIND
THEY’RE ALL HAVING FUN I GOT LEFT BEHIND
I LEARNED MY LESSON BUT I PAID THIS TIME
THEY’RE ALL HAVING FUN I GOT LEFT BEHIND

THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS BEST
I TOLD A LIE I MUST CONFESS
BUT I WAS ONLY TRYING TO BUY SOME TIME
YOU FIGURED OUT THE REST
I TOLD A LIE I MUST CONFESS
NEVER DECEIVE YOUR FRIENDS IT ALWAYS GETS YOU IN THE END
Track Name: Walk On (You're Slowly Heading Home)
WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LOST AND TIRED FROM TRAVELING
WALK ON, YOU’RE SLOWLY HEADING HOME
IN THIS DAY AND AGE, THEY’LL TELL YOU YOU’RE DERRANGED
TO BELIEVE IN ANYTHING YOU CAN’T SEE
THEY’LL DISMISS IT STRAIGHT AWAY IF IT CANNOT BE EXPLAINED
AND IT’S WORTHLESS IF IT’S GIVEN FOR FREE

WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LOST AND TIRED FROM TRAVELING
WALK ON, YOU’RE SLOWLY HEADING HOME
WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LOST AND TIRED FROM TRAVELING
WALK ON, YOU’RE SLOWLY HEADING HOME

WHEN THE MINSTREL SANG HIS SONG, AND YOUR FRIENDS HAVE TRAVELED ON
AND LONELY IS THE ONLY THING YOU FEEL
WHEN YOU’VE KNOCKED ON EVERY DOOR, AND YOU CAN’T WALK ANYMORE
THEN SHALL YOU KNOW WHAT IS REAL

WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LOST AND TIRED FROM TRAVELING
WALK ON, YOU’RE SLOWLY HEADING HOME
WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LOST AND TIRED FROM TRAVELING
WALK ON, YOU’RE SLOWLY HEADING HOME
MY LORD
Track Name: Silent Treatment
TELL ME THAT YOU’VE CAUGHT ME OUT
TELL ME WHAT THAT LOOK’S ABOUT
THERE’S NO ANGER THERE’S NO TEARS
NO COMMUNICATION HERE
I CAN’T STAND YOU BEING COLD
WHEN THE REASON WON’T BE TOLD
TELL ME THAT YOU KNOW MY SECRET
DON’T GIVE ME NO SILENT TREATMENT

SITTING IN THIS ROOM TOGETHER
AMIDST A SEA OF STORMY WEATHER
EYES THAT NEVER MEET WITH MINE
SENDING SHIVERS DOWN MY SPINE
IF THE CAUSE CAN’T BE SUSPECTED
HOW CAN THIS ALL BE CORRECTED
NOW THE JURY HAS BEEN SEATED
DON’T GIVE ME NO SILENT TREATMENT

WAS THERE SOME GREAT PAIN I CAUSED HER
BRINGING ME THIS SILENT TORTURE
COULD IT BE THAT I’VE FORGOTTEN
SOMETHING THAT IS TURNING ROTTEN
BREAK THE SILENCE TALK TO ME
‘CAUSE THE TRUTH WILL SET US FREE
I’LL TAKE MY PRIDE AND I WILL EAT IT
DON’T GIVE ME NO SILENT TREATMENT

NO SILENT TREATMENT
Track Name: Living It Up
DON’T BE DISCOURAGED DON’T LET THE PAPERS MAKE YOU ALL DEPRESSED
DON’T FEEL REJECTED WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU THAT YOU’RE SECOND BEST
I WOULDN’T WORRY ‘CAUSE THAT’LL NEVER GET YOU ANYWHERE
YOU COULD BE LIVING IT UP LYING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR

WE ALL WANT ANSWERS WE WANT THE SECRETS TO OUR HAPPINESS
SOME SAY THEY’VE FOUND THEM BUT MORE THAN LIKELY IT’S A SECOND GUESS
THEY’RE NOT SO SPECIAL YOU CAN FIND THOSE PEOPLE ANYWHERE
YOU COULD BE LIVING IT UP LYING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR

WELL THERE’S NO TOP FORTY PLAYING IN MY HOUSE
IT DON’T DO ANYTHING FOR ME
THE STUFF I PLAY’S NOT REALLY HIP THESE DAYS
BUT IT GETS ME WHERE I WANT TO BE

JUST BITE THE BULLET JUST DRINK A BOTTLE OF THE COLD HARD FACTS
NO USE PRETENDING I DON’T THINK YOU’RE GONNA GET HER BACK
LOOK IN THE CORNER JUST BE GLAD IT ISN’T YOU DOWN THERE
YOU COULD BE LIVING IT UP LYING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR

WELL SOMETIMES I GET HASSLED ‘CAUSE I LOOK A LITTLE OUT OF PLACE
AT THE SUPERMARKET WITH MY COWBOY HAT AND SOMEONE WANTS TO REARRANGE MY FACE
BUT I STAY AWAY FROM TROUBLE CAUSE THERE’S SUCH A LOT OF IT ABOUT
AND I DON’T COMMENT ON THEIR BAGGY PANTS
WITH THE UNDERWEAR HANGING OUT

JUST KEEP ON REACHING FOR THE STARS SHINING IN YOUR EYES
THAT’S WHAT THEY TELL YOU WHEN THEY REALLY SHOULD APOLOGIZE
NOT EVEN NASA COULD GET A BODY ANYWHERE UP THERE
YOU COULD BE LIVING IT UP LYING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR
YOU COULD BE LIVING IT UP LYING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR
YEAH YOU COULD BE LIVING IT UP LYING AROUND IN YOUR UNDERWEAR
Track Name: Whole Wide World
WELL I FINALLY FOUND HER I FOUND THE RIGHT GIRL
AND THERE’S NO OTHER LIKE HER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
TWO PEOPLE IN LOVE IS SUCH A HARD THING TO FIND
WE’RE NOT IN THE SAME COUNTRY BUT WE’RE IN THE SAME TIME

WELL I’VE SEEN IT ONCE BEFORE I THINK
BUT MY POOR OLD FRIEND ENDED UP IN THE DRINK
NOTHING LIKE THIS EVER HAPPENED TO ME
‘CAUSE I NEVER LOVED A GIRL SO TENDERLY

WELL I FOUND ME A JOB AND I START RIGHT AWAY
I’LL SAVE EVERY DOLLAR JUST AS SOON AS I’M PAID
SOME FOLKS CALLED ME LAZY AND I SHOULD DO MORE
I’VE JUST NEVER HAD SOMETHING WORTH WORKING FOR

SO I SAW THE WOOD AND I HAMMER THE NAILS
I SAND BACK ALL OF THEM FENCING PALES
I FIX IT ALL UP JUST LIKE IT SHOULD BE
AND I DO IT ‘CAUSE SHE MEANS SO MUCH TO ME

WELL I’M NOT REAL FOND OF GETTING UP AT FIVE
BUT THAT ICY COLD AIR MAKES YOU KNOW YOU’RE ALIVE
AND IT’S EASY TO DO ALL THE THINGS THAT I DO
YOU SEE SHE’S BEEN WORKING HARD TO SEE ME TOO

SO MY HANDS GET BLISTERED AND MY BACK GETS SORE
BUT THE SUN COMES UP AND I’M OUT THE DOOR
I MAKE FOUR DOLLARS AND I PUT AWAY THREE
AND I DO IT ‘CAUSE SHE MEANS THAT MUCH TO ME

WELL I FINALLY FOUND HER I FOUND THE RIGHT GIRL
AND THERE’S NO OTHER LIKE HER IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
Track Name: I Know It Isn't Right
I’M LISTING IN MY HEAD ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID
BUT THE TIME FOR TALKING HAS BEEN USED UP NOW IT’S GONE
WE DON’T TALK ANYMORE THAT’S WHAT WE USE THOSE LAWYERS FOR
CAN’T BE IN THE SAME ROOM NOW ‘CAUSE WE DON’T GET ALONG

OH HOW THE TIMES HAVE CHANGED FROM MAKING LOVE AND HAPPY DAYS
WHEN WE BUILT OUR HOME TOGETHER WHEN OUR LOVE WAS RIGHT
FIRST IT WAS JUST YOU AND ME THEN CAME ALONG LITTLE NUMBER THREE
HOW IT BREAKS MY HEART WHEN I CAN’T TUCK HIM IN AT NIGHT

OUTSIDE THE CROWS ARE CALLING AND THE AUTUMN LEAVES ARE FALLING
BUT ALL THESE PRETTY THINGS ARE BLINDED FROM MY SIGHT
MY FRIENDS THEY ALL AGREE AND THEY SOFTLY SAY TO ME
THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME BUT I KNOW IT ISN’T RIGHT

NOW I GET UP IN THE MORNING JUST BEFORE THE SUN IS DAWNING
WAKING FROM A NIGHTMARE THAT I KNOW WON’T GO AWAY
MY WORKING FRIENDS ARE GOOD TO ME THEY KNOW THAT I’M IN MISERY
BUT I’M HARD TO BE AROUND I’VE GOT NOTHING GOOD TO SAY

OUTSIDE THE CROWS ARE CALLING AND THE AUTUMN LEAVES ARE FALLING
BUT ALL THESE PRETTY THINGS ARE BLINDED FROM MY SIGHT
MY FRIENDS THEY ALL AGREE AND THEY SOFTLY SAY TO ME
THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME BUT I KNOW IT ISN’T RIGHT

SO ONCE A WEEK I SWEEP MY FLOOR AND SHE DROPS HIM OFF AT MY FRONT DOOR
WE GET OUT THE TRAIN SET OR WE GO OUT TO THE PARK
AND HE HOLDS ON TO MY SLEEVE ‘CAUSE PRETTY SOON IT’S TIME TO LEAVE
I’VE GOT TO HAVE HIM SAFELY BACK AT HOME BEFORE IT’S DARK

OUTSIDE THE CROWS ARE CALLING AND THE AUTUMN LEAVES ARE FALLING
BUT ALL THESE PRETTY THINGS ARE BLINDED FROM MY SIGHT
MY FRIENDS THEY ALL AGREE AND THEY SOFTLY SAY TO ME
THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME BUT I KNOW IT ISN’T RIGHT

I’M LISTING IN MY HEAD ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER SAID
BUT THE TIME FOR TALKING HAS BEEN USED UP NOW IT’S GONE
Track Name: Lukewarm Heart
WELL HE’S WORKED HARD FOR HIS COUNTRY LIKE WE’RE TOLD THAT WE MUST DO
AND HE’S DONE YOUR DIRTY LAUNDRY AND HE’S CLEANED YOUR BATHROOM TOO
A SERVANT TO YOUR CHILDREN WHILE THEY PLAYED AROUND YOUR THRONE
PLEASE TREAT THIS MAN LIKE HE DESERVES DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME

‘CAUSE WE ALL HAVE ROOM TO LIVE OUR LIVES WE ALL HAVE AIR TO BREATHE
AND NOW YOU SEND THOSE GOONS AROUND AND TELL HIM HE MUST LEAVE
THIS PLACE MIGHT NOT SEEM MUCH TO YOU BUT IT’S ALL THAT HE’S EVER KNOWN
SO LET HIM LIVE HIS LIFE IN PEACE DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME

THIS MANSION THAT YOU’RE LIVING IN IS BEAUTIFUL AND WARM
YOU LOOK OUT FROM YOUR TOWERS AT YOUR FOUNTAINS AND YOUR LAWNS
YOUR FAMILY IS ALL OVERWEIGHT YOUR SERVANTS ARE SKIN AND BONE
FOR ONCE DO WHAT YOU KNOW YOU OUGHT DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME

‘CAUSE WE ALL HAVE ROOM TO LIVE OUR LIVES WE ALL HAVE AIR TO BREATHE
AND NOW YOU SEND THOSE GOONS AROUND AND TELL HIM HE MUST LEAVE
THIS PLACE MIGHT NOT SEEM MUCH TO YOU BUT IT’S ALL THAT HE’S EVER KNOWN
SO LET HIM LIVE HIS LIFE IN PEACE DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME

IF YOU BELIEVE IN DOING WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS GOOD
YOU COULD BE SO GENEROUS IF ANYBODY COULD
LOOK DEEP INTO YOUR LUKEWARM HEART JUST LIKE THE LORD HAS SHOWN
DO UNTO HIM AS TO YOURSELF DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME

‘CAUSE WE ALL HAVE ROOM TO LIVE OUR LIVES WE ALL HAVE AIR TO BREATHE
AND NOW YOU SEND THOSE GOONS AROUND AND TELL HIM HE MUST LEAVE
THIS PLACE MIGHT NOT SEEM MUCH TO YOU BUT IT’S ALL THAT HE’S EVER KNOWN
SO LET HIM LIVE HIS LIFE IN PEACE DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
YEAH WE ALL HAVE AIR TO BREATHE
AND NOW YOU SEND THOSE GOONS AROUND AND TELL HIM HE MUST LEAVE
THIS PLACE MIGHT NOT SEEM MUCH TO YOU BUT IT’S ALL THAT HE’S EVER KNOWN
SO LET HIM LIVE HIS LIFE IN PEACE DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
DON’T MOVE HIM FROM HIS HOME
