Track Name: Foolmaker
She make a rich man poor, she make a young man old
When she gets what she wants, she turn from hot to cold
She make a proud man beg, she make a strong man weak
When she plays her game, you know she play for keeps
Here she come now

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Here come the heartbreaker
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
She is a love taker
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Here come the dream maker
Watch out boy she’ll use you as a toy
There ain’t no escape once you take the bait
She is the foolmaker

She takes a heart of gold and turns it to stone
Her love is cruel, she’ll cut you to the bone
She’ll promise you the stars, then do what she please
She’ll lift you up, then drop you to your knees
Don’t be a fool boy

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Here comes the heartbreaker
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
She is a love taker
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Here comes the dream maker
Watch out boy she’ll use you as a toy
There ain’t no escape once you take the bait
She is the foolmaker

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Here comes the heartbreaker
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
She is a love taker
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
Here comes the dream maker

Don’t be a fool boy.
Track Name: Mama Said
Mama said life ain’t fair girl
Mama said stand on your own
Mama said you gotta be strong now
Mama said cold winds would blow

But mama never told me
How to handle a man like you
She had no words of wisdom
Now I don’t know what to do with what mama said

Mama said keep your defenses
Mama said they can be cruel
Mama said there would be heartache
Mama said don’t be a fool

But mama forgot to mention
The thrill of letting go
Her story had no ending
Now I’m left out on my own

Now my heart has been unbroken
And my world turned upside own
Forbidden words been spoken
And my thoughts all turned around
Mama’s best advice was the thing that wasn’t so
Mama said, that’s what mama said

Mama said life ain’t fair girl
Mama said stand on your own
Mama said you gotta be strong now
Mama said cold winds would blow
Mama said keep your defenses
Mama said they can be cruel
Mama said there would be heartache
Mama said don’t be a fool

But mama never told me there could be a man like this
Who’d knock me down with a smile and lift me up with a kiss
I can’t believe I’ve been so foolish, I can’t be leave my heart’s been stirred
I can’t believe you broke the door down, I can’t believe a single word
That my mama said
Track Name: Don't Let Me Go
Baby I’ve been lied to, God knows I’ve tried to
Make you understand that I just can’t take no more
I know you hurt me, you don’t deserve me
So what makes me stop ‘fore I walk out that door?

Don’t let me go, beg me to stay
Get down on your knees, don’t let me walk away
You need me with you, can’t make it alone
Need me by your side, don’t let me go
Don’t let me go

Remember the days when, our love was burnin’
You couldn’t wait just to walk through my door
The memories haunt me, don’t you still want me?
Before I go, can’t you kiss me once more?

Middle 8
Your love is cruel, my pride is gone
You made me your fool, now I can’t move on

Guitar Solo (9 bars)

Don’t let me go, beg me to stay
Get down on your knees, don’t let me walk away
You need me with you, can’t make it alone
Need me by your side, don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Track Name: Whiskey and Cigarettes
You go down so easy
On Saturday
But come Sunday morning
You’re nothing but pain

You look so seductive, by neon light
You promised me one hell of a night
And I’ll tell you baby, you blew my mind
But I can’t stand the taste you’re leaving behind

Like whiskey and cigarettes, you are taboo
As hard as I try, I can’t resist you
You go down so easy on Saturday
But come Sunday morning, you’re nothing but pain

Middle 8
You think I would learn, when time after time
You go to my head, then leave me behind
And as I lay broken, and soaked in pain
Can’t wait for the day I’ll taste you again

Like whiskey and cigarettes, you are taboo
As hard as I try, I can’t resist you
Track Name: Can't Take it Away
They can take the shoes off your feet
They can take the food that you eat
You can lose fortune and fame
But my love, my love is one thing that’s safe oh yeah

Can’t take it away, listen baby
Can’t take it away
They can plead, and they can beg but they
Can’t take my love away

I know you’re scared. You think my love will fade
But baby, baby, baby, baby baby, they ain’t got what it takes no they don’t
They can take my clothes, they can take my car and they can take my time
But my love for you baby, is one thing that’s mine, all mine

Can’t take it away, listen baby
Can’t take it away
They can plead, and they can beg but they
Can’t take my love away

Repeat chorus
Track Name: Give it up
Been waitin’ on you for a long, long time
Don’t you put me off boy, I want you for mine
Been a patient girl, been takin’ it slow
But your time is up boy, now I got to know

Give it up, give it up: I got to have your lovin’
Give it up, give it up: Your kissin’ and your huggin’
Give it up, give it up: I can’t wait no longer
Give it up, give it up: This feeling’s growing stronger
Oh boy give it up now, now

Your eyes don’t lie, you want me to stay
Don’t understand why you push me away
When it feels so right, you know it can’t be wrong
My heart can’t bear to be strung along no, no

Give it up, give it up: I got to have your lovin’
Give it up, give it up: Your kissin’ and your huggin’
Give it up, give it up: I can’t wait no longer
Give it up, give it up: This feeling’s growing stronger
Oh boy give it up now, now

Give it up (give it up), give it up(give it up): I got to have your lovin’
Give it up (give it up), give it up(give it up): Your kissin’ and your huggin’
Give it up (give it up), give it up(give it up): I can’t wait no longer
Give it up (give it up), give it up(give it up): This feeling’s growing stronger
Oh boy give it uuuuuup, yeah
I said give it up na-na-na-na-na-na-na
I said, I said give it up oooo
Give it up (give it up), give it up(give it up)
Track Name: Lay Down
You bear your pain like a weapon
Your heart has crumbled from the weight
You sling cruel words like gilded arrows
You hide behind them where your safe

But sometimes you might grow weary
Surrender will whisper your name

Lay down, lay down your burden
Lay down, lay down your fear
When the load gets too heavy
And the road gets too long
Lay down with me

You’ve built a fine suit of armour
To protect you from trhe pain
But your defense has become your prison
And foolish pride keeps you in chains

So when your strong arms grow tired
And there’s nothing to do but let go
That’s when you

Lay down, lay down your burden
Lay down, lay down your fear
When the load gets too heavy
And the road gets too long
Lay down with me

When the load gets too heavy
And the road gets too long
We can slay all your demons
In my arms you’ll be strong
Lay down with me
Track Name: The Past is Through with You
Look back at your childhood, be mad at your dad
Find a good and sticky grudge and a reason to feel bad
Hold on tight to yesterday
Keep your fears about you, throw all hope away
Just know the world still turns while you demand your due
You’re not through with the past…but the past is through with you

Let yourself laugh and come out of the blue
Let yourself love, experience something new
Let yourself live, to thine own self be true
It’s time to get through with the past
Cause the past is through with you

Let the jerk that cut you off sit in your front seat
He’ll be right there with you for the remainder of the week
Let the lover that hurt you in your bed again
Keep your heart planted firmly in the pain
While you’re mired in resentment, baby you don’t have a clue
You’re not through with the past…but the past is through with you

Let yourself laugh and come out of the blue
Let yourself love, experience something new
Let yourself live, to thine own self be true
It’s time to get through with the past
Cause the past is through with you


Let yourself laugh and come out of the blue
Let yourself love, experience something new
Let yourself live, to thine own self be true
It’s time to get through with the past
Cause the past is through with you
Track Name: Traffic
Stop! Go! Yield to the right.
Speed up! Slow down! It’s only 50 at night.
Signs. Talkin’. Tellin’ me which way to go.
Turn right! Turn left! Construction zone.

Traffic. Beep! Beep!
Trying hard to keep my cool.
Traffic. Beep! Beep!
I just can’t get through.

It’s summer in the city and the streets are hot and gritty it’s a meltdown
Can’t get around this Chevy cause the traffic’s kinda heavy it’s a lockdown
All I wanna do is put the pedal to the metal with the top down
The traffic lights are flashing and the bumpers started smashing get the cops now.

Traffic. Beep! Beep!
Trying hard to keep my cool.
Traffic. Beep! Beep!
I just can’t get through.

Track Name: The Skin You're In
Maria hates her bum and Jill can’t stand her thighs
Kelly wishes for a smaller belly and Keisha wants blue eyes
Jake thinks he could lose a few and Nathan wants more hair
Russel’s lookin’ for bigger muscles John thinks his skin’s too fair

Come on people, break your mirrors
You’ll have some peace for seven years
Give up the fight you’ll never win
It’s time to love the skin you’re in

The skin you’re in is yours alone
It’s yours to love and its yours to scorn
It’s been with you since you were born
It’ll be with you when you’re old and worn
Na na na na na na

Love the junk in your trunk, love the wiggle in your walk
Love the donk in your badonkadonk love the music in your talk
Love the knock in your knees love the colour of your eyes
Love the gap in your teeth love the thunder in your thighs

Come on people, break your mirrors
You’ll have some peace for seven years
Give up the fight you’ll never win
It’s time to love the skin you’re in

The skin you’re in is yours alone
It’s yours to love and its yours to scorn
It’s been with you since you were born
It’ll be with you when you’re old and worn
Na na na na na na

Come on people break your mirrors
You'll have some peace for seven years
Give up the fight you cannot win
You've got to love the skin you're in

Come on people break your mirrors
You'll have some peace for seven years
Give up the fight you cannot win
You've got to love the skin you're in

Pierce it, ink it, stretch it, shrink it just love the skin you’re in
Tan it, dress it, smack it, caress it just love love love the skin you’re in
Paint it, sooth it, scratch it, smooth it and love the skin you’re in
Pinch it, flick it, slap it and lick it just love the skin you’re in
Track Name: Show Me the Light
Shades of grey, a winter’s sky
Don’t wanna get up today, couldn’t say why
Voices on the radio tell me it’s dark outside
Though the clock says it’s just 10am, the darkness blinds the light

It’s hard enough to sleep, let alone dream
When even the truth, is not what it seems
How am I supposed to even know what’s wrong or right
When something inside me, wants to give up the fight

So put a candle in your window, let me know that there’s a light
Take me somewhere far away from here, make the day out of the night
Say you believe in me, show me the light

(Show me the light) Make me see the sun will dry the rain
(Show me the light) Make me believe that there’s an end to the pain
(Show me the light) Tell me tomorrow will be a brighter day
Show me love, show me the way, show me the light

So put a candle in your window, let me know that there’s a light
Take me somewhere far away from here, make the day out of the night
Say you believe in me, show me the light

(Show me the light) Make me see the sun will dry the rain
(Show me the light) Make me believe that there’s an end to the pain
(Show me the light) Make me see the sun will dry the rain
(Show me the light) Make me believe that there’s an end to the pain
(Show me the light) Tell me tomorrow will be a brighter day
Show me love, show me the way, show me the light
Track Name: You and Me and Music
Come on brothers and sisters around the world
Gather round now, boys and girls
I’ve got something to tell you, I’ve got something to say
We’re all lost here, but we can find our way

You don’t need money, you don’t need fame
It’s not the way you look or family name
Don’t need no mansion or fancy cars
What we need now, we’ll find it in our hearts

All we need is you and me and music
All we need is you and me and music
You and me and harmony sweet music

Don’t judge the clothing or the colour of your sister’s skin
Look to her soul now for the song within
Every religion, every culture and every creed
We’ll come together in a melody

We might look different but we’re the same
Take off your prejudice and join the game
We are one big family, we are united in rhythm and harmony

All we need is you and me and music
All we need is you and me and music
You and me and harmony sweet music

All we need, is you and me
All we need is you and me and music

We might look different but we’re the same
Take off your prejudice and join the game
We are one big family, we are united in rhythm and harmony

All we need is you and me and music
All we need is you and me and music
You and me and harmony sweet music
