CRASH & BURN © 2003 Thompson/Broomhall Got your motor on Ya burnin’ tyres squeal There’s something wrong Better cut a deal Ya running hot Anger in your eyes Think you’re a big shot With your pack of lies Taking no notice of the road ahead You’d better watch out you’re gonna wind up dead You take a wrong turn When you gonna learn You gonna crash n burn Hit accelerate And throw it all to fate Take it up a gear Laugh in the face of fear Ya feeling great Check your racing heart rate But you ain’t comin’ back Brother it’s a one-way track Taking no notice of the road ahead You’d better watch out you’re gonna wind up dead You take a wrong turn When you gonna learn You gonna crash n burn

Emergency 05:23
EMERGENCY©2003 Thompson/Broomhall Got a call in the night from a friend in need Last dime in a phone booth yelling at me He’s been drinking all night tryin’ to dull the pain Well line ‘em up baby – here we go again I know I should be cruel to be kind And every time it troubles my mind But hell I can’t save mankind So tell me brother where do I sign It’s an emergency - Emergency It’s an emergency - Emergency I’m tryin’ to think straight Pour me another one You know it’s getting late when the morning comes I’m holding out my helping hand And man I really understand You can count on me I’m your man It’s great I had nothing planned Just another tortured soul on a weekday night We can talk it out – but we can’t make it right Tell me what do you want What are you looking for

Blue On Blue 05:21
Blue On Blue Thompson/Broomhall © 2003 Back against the wall I couldn’t see for dust Shooting around in all directions My misconceptions Breaking down the trust Well I’ve been thinking how things ought to be Never say never and never give up Come back to me Blue on Blue We were just holding on But I lost your hand Every little promise we made Began to fade Washed up in the sand Blue on blue

Heartbreaker 03:36
Heartbreaker Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 You’re running around abusing my name In and out of trouble like some kind of game Well I told you once, I told you twice You’re playing with fire when you roll the dice You’re a heartbreaker A blues maker A mean faker Everybody knows the truth What ya tryin’ to do to me I’m trying to help but you just can’t see You take the risk - you never take the blame It’s like you’re running wild and you’re never gonna tame You’re a heartbreaker A blues maker A mean faker Everybody knows the truth You’re a heartbreaker A breath taker A hate maker Everybody knows your game You’re a heartbreaker A blues maker A mean faker Everybody knows your name <solo> You’re a heartbreaker A blues maker A mean faker Everybody knows the truth You’re a heartbreaker A breath taker A hate maker Everybody knows your game You’re a heartbreaker A blues maker A mean faker Everybody knows your name

You Got The Better Of Me Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 I confess I confess, I’m in a mess You got the better of me I regret I regret, we ever met You got the better of me I believe I believe, I’m gonna leave You got the better of me
7.
Nothing At All Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 I asked a wise man what he knows to be real He turned away and said do what you feel I asked a preacher how I should spend my days All he could say was get on your knees and pray I could see deception in a trusted man’s eyes He smiled at me as I swallowed his lies Seen bad men prosper while the innocent fall I still can’t make no sense of it all Without you I got nothing at all Without you I got nothing at all I searched everywhere I’ve opened my soul I made your love My ultimate goal I been on top of the mountain I’ve been down on the ground But compared to your love There’s been nothing I’ve found Without you I got nothing at all Without you I got nothing at all Without you I got nothing at all
8.
Young Girl Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 Well who is she to do anything? Most of what you say goes over her head She gonna play and she gonna sing And she ain’t gonna do a thing that you said Cos she’s a young girl In a man’s world In a man’s world In a man’s world Well looking on blind to what’s goin’ down Making moves that we don’t understand She’s suffering fools in a dead end town Precious time is slippin’ through her hands Yeah she’s a young girl In a man’s world In a man’s world In a man’s world She knows her mind, she’s nobody’s fool She’s the stubborn kind and she can kick like a mule She won’t be told, what she’s gonna do Cos she’s in control, and she’ll run rings around you Well you’d better watch out, friend you’d better take care Cos if she’s on the streets, it ain’t safe out there! When she’s stepping out, people turning their heads She’s dressed up to kill and man she’ll knock ya dead! Well she wants love – like anyone But what she does is costin’ so much She wants respect for the things she’s done She says you can look but you just can’t touch Yeah she’s a young girl In a man’s world In a man’s world In a man’s world (repeat)

Wotcha Doin’ To Me? Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 I got your number, read your mail You think you’re gonna take the wind from my sails Don’t wanna know you, be your friend The truth is out and now this party’s gonna end Wotcha doin’ to me? I close my eyes, I see your face The way you’re acting is such a disgrace You take my money, take my pride There ain’t no words for what I’m feeling inside Wotcha doin’ to me? I’ve been waiting by the phone I’ve been feelin’ all alone Like you’re never coming home I can’t take another call Saying you’re just about to fall And you gone and done it all Tired of running through the night Breaking up another fight Baby - this just ain’t right You can argue all the way But this time you’re gonna pay And there’s nothing left to say Wotcha doin’ to me?

Independence 04:57
Independence Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 Here I am looking for you again There you are my secret friend All alone there’s no need to hide My heart is sure this night will end Darkness falling Love is calling I am holding on Keep on reaching out Faith will conquer doubt Independence You are powerful You are beautiful Independence Can’t believe the things that people say Words are cheap, they crowd your mind In the end you will find a better way Trust your heart and take your time We can be strong Find where we belong Let's keep holding on We are reaching out Faith will conquer doubt Independence We are powerful We are beautiful Independence

Long Road Home Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 Can you give me shelter From all the things I’ve done A place to lay my head Till the morning comes My heart feels like a stone Cos what I did was wrong Been trying to make it right But the pain goes on In the heat of the night, when the pressure’s getting higher It’s a long road, a long road home It’s a long road, long road It’s a long road, a long road home Can you hear me moaning Listen to my call Feeling like I’m falling Gonna lose it all It’s out of my control The damage has been done I try to say your name But the words won’t come In the heat of the night, when the pressure’s getting higher It’s a long road, a long road home Long road etc. Ruthless and ashamed I know I did you wrong Careless and so cruel Just to prove I’m strong What I did to you No-one can deny Such a foolish game And such a wretched lie (Such a wretched lie) It’s a long road, a long road home

Preachin The Blues (Full Band Version) Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 If it’s alright with you I guess it’s alright with me I can’t believe what you do, it’s really something to see Well if that’s what you choose You’ll hear me preaching the blues I got no opinion that hasn’t been heard (But) I don’t change my decisions and I stand by my word Well you should follow my cues When I’m preaching the blues You know you’re so outrageous For five minutes of fame Seems it’s contagious (You’re) all playing the game While you’re making the news I’ll be preaching the blues You’ve taken leave of your senses I’ve taken hold of my soul You think I’m defenceless But I’m still in control Sit down in your pews Cos I’m preaching the blues You can shake in your shoes Cos I’m preaching the blues I got nothing to lose… I’m just preaching the blues

Honest To God Thompson/Broomhall © 2004 I don’t claim to be one hundred percent My words ain’t always heaven sent I’m no angel ain’t got no wings And I don’t know why I do those (these) things But I’m honest – honest to God
