Tumblin’ Dice – Keith Thompson Once was a gambler, you know I rolled the tumblin’ dice Once was a gambler, you know I rolled the tumblin’ dice It was only when I lost it all that I stopped to think twice I used to drink a lot, you know I stayed out all night long I used to drink a lot, you know I stayed out all night long The I woke up one day and said Lord you know that’s wrong I used to drink whisky till it got the better of me I used to drink whisky till it got the better of me Then I looked in the mirror I didn’t like what I could see If I could find love you know I’d change my wicked ways If I could find love you know I’d change my wicked ways My dear mother, every night on her knees she’d pray She said, Lord have mercy on my wicked son She said, Lord have mercy on my wicked son She believes that when you die your life has just begun And she tells everyone

Could’ve Been Somebody – Keith Thompson Could’ve been somebody, I could’ve been somebody good Could’ve been somebody, I could’ve been somebody good But I was always fooling around, never did a thing I should I could have been a teacher but I never paid attention at school I could have been a teacher but I never paid attention at school I was always fooling around breaking every single one of those rules I could have been a preacher but my little girl wouldn’t let me pray I could have been a preacher but my little girl wouldn’t let me pray We all need love, don’t matter what anybody says Gonna be somebody, Gonna be somebody good Gonna be somebody, Gonna be somebody good Stop fooling around and do everything I should

Stealing Back My Heart – Keith Thompson You’ve got me hiding behind a wall of disillusion You’ve got me running from all this confusion But I’m turning it around And you know I think I’ve found the solution You had me blinded, you’re the devil in disguise My heart was so cold, I swallowed all your lies Now I’ve opened my eyes, I predict your demise But if you still can’t compromise It’ll take you by surprise I’m stealing back my heart, stealing back my heart You think you’re so smart I’m stealing back my heart I was believing; that I could never get ahead You had me seething; you had me follow where you led Now take a second look, I won’t read your book And I won’t sing your hook I’ll fill your heart with dread I’m stealing back my heart, stealing back my heart You think you’re so smart I’m stealing back my heart

Power Of Love – Keith Thompson You’ve got the answers to every question You bring my darkness out into the light You own the secrets of every season You change my wrong doing into right The power of love belongs to you No one can love like you do The power of love belongs to you No one can love like you do I’m going to run to you When they say there’s no way to reverse this Trouble deep down in my soul You bring the problem out to the surface But you do it just to make me whole Strong tower, you’re like a fortress My one pursuit I run to you my hiding place No power, no success, there’s no substitute Life is a gift from your grace
6.
Beat The System – Keith Thompson Machinery turning and the wheels go round and round It’s hard to notice if you’re up or if you’re down I’m getting tired of doing what I’m told I’ve got to change my life before I get too old All my words how you twist ‘em I’m gonna beat the system Can’t go anywhere without being seen I have to buy just what I see on the screen The radio tells me what music I should play But from all your trash I can’t seem to get away All your ways I must resist ‘em Gonna beat the system Everybody does it, that’s what they say No-one will notice if you do it again But don’t think I haven’t seen through your game Well I don’t want to be the same Gonna beat the system

In Your Arms 04:24
In Your Arms – Keith Thompson Well I travelled on empty on this flight tonight I’m going back, going back home to you I have bought many lies in pursuit of love and freedom But now I realize what is true But I don’t want no gold, ‘cos it’s not what I’m told All I want is lie in your arms tonight I have crossed mercy lines far too many times Tried your patience, missing all of your signs I’m a walking, wounded man and I ran out of steam But I’ve not forgotten how to dream But I don’t want to crawl and you can take it all Al I want is to lie in your arms tonight Well there’s a hole in my heart where love has died But I know who I am and I won’t be denied by you But I don’t want to crawl and you can take it all Al I want is to lie in your arms tonight
8.
Under Your Shadow – Keith Thompson Manipulated, under your control Frustrated, deep in my soul With no sunlight I can’t grow Under Your Shadow I know, it wasn’t your intention This abuse, wasn’t my invention But it’s not right. I can’t go Under your shadow Using gifts to suit your own ends Re-write the truth to spite all your friends You stop at nothing, you don’t hesitate It’s a fine line between love and hate Under Your Shadow Rescue me, save me from this pain Break free from this ball and chain For the sake of love I must go Under Your Shadow
9.
Not Same You make your excuses, you try to justify You think everything is yours to buy You get laid and your memories fade Its not the same as love Every man for his own self the end justifies the means You keep ignoring those silent screams As needs must confuse love with lust It’s not the same as love You satisfy yourself, you take it on the chin You think the truth is where you’re living in Judging your brother by the colour of his skin It’s not the same as love
10.
Let You Go 04:22
Let You Go – Keith Thompson Been doing a lot of thinking ‘bout all we’re looking at Everyday you’re leaving; I say you can’t do that But I get so tired of laying down the same old groove If we can’t work it out together then one of us has to move We both know….I’ve got to let you go I think I know what’s best for you, you think you know what’s right I just want to talk to you, but all we do is fight Lately I aint sleeping, just rolling around in my bed All this thought keeps on creeping around and round in my head I think you know….I’ve got to let you go My heart is captivated, I’ll always be hear for you But my mind is activated, there’s nothing else we can do So I just let you go on doing things in your own way Aint no use in saying any more today But after all is said and done, don’t expect me to approve Cards are on the table and it’s your move I think we both know…I’ve got to let you go

All Over Now 03:24
All Over Now – Keith Thompson I’ve been through the mill Thought it would never end Abuse of all my trust Crucified my friends But now….it’s all over now So many words I wished I’d never said I could never win Never get ahead But now….it’s all over now I was in trouble I looked for you to blame You took it on yourself I was in shame But now….it’s all over now
12.
Promised land I got a feeling no turning back Like a big 8 wheeler coming down the track Gotta keep moving don’t you understand Till we reach that promised land Moving faster cant slow down Got my eyes fixed on that victors crown And if my words you don’t approve When the Lord is ready You gotta move Where we’re going there’ll be no more cryin’ Time is coming soon there’ll be no more lyin’ When we step right up to the heavenly throne You’ll either feel at home or all alone Well this world we’re just passin’ through You know the way, the life it’s true Just take hold of the master’s hand He’ll lead you to the promised land
