Zero X

Verse:
‘You wanna put a fruity
where the sun don’t shine,
tell me I’m a cutie
and that I won’t mind,
look upon a beauty
and you may just find
I care.’

Promises at midnight

You can keep
your promises at midnight,
the words you share
just hang in the air.

(Gonna make) time for us tonight

I know that you’ve been working
every hour, every day,
and taking all your chances,
counting out your pay.

She reminds me of you

I knew
I was over you,
there was nothing
you could do.

How wrong I was.

Liquid sunshine

When it’s hot
and what you’ve got
is all you need
to sow the seed,
liquid sunshine (is all you need),
liquid sunshine (to sow the seed).

A merchant of menace

In Room 505
there’s a man alive
to the few things that matter to him.
In the room next door
a man of the law
counts out the wages of sin.

East of Eden Park

East of Eden Park
where the dirt glows in the dark
you’d never touch the bark
of the trees,
there stands a handsome school
with clever kids, no fools,
east of Eden Park
in the dark.

When the honeymoon is over

Verse 1
When the honeymoon is over
and the pieces packed away,
pictures hung in silver frames
with tokens of the day.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Verse 2
When the honeymoon is over
and the relatives all gone,
everything they came to say
still lingers on and on.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Middle 8
Here at last
the die is cast,
your single days
are long, long passed.

Chorus
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
days of wine and roses
are to come.
When the honey, honey, honeymoon is over,
take a walk together
in the sun.

Make your lives together
so much fun.

Girls, guitars and goals

Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.
Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.

She maybe blonde
maybe brunette,
maybe as handsome
as you’re gonna get.

Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.
Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.

You wanna rock,
you wanna funk.
May be a skater,
skinhead or punk.

Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.
Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.

Make no mistake
here are the teams,
a passion for life,
a head full of dreams.

Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.
Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on.

Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday.
Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday.
Girls, guitars and goals
on a Saturday,
come on, come on, come on!

Voices in my head

Verse:
‘Beyond the front row
is a place I don’t go,
where shadows may stay
whenever I play.’
