Track Name: What What What
VERSE 1
Maybe next week
We can meet up
and I can tell you
Everything I feel
But I doubt that
it’ll happen
When you’re avoiding me
When I tried
come round to see you
You friend told me that you were not home
so maybe next week
It will be different
I guess we’ll just have to see

CHORUS
What What What what do want from me
I can’t tell what you want me to be
What What What what you want me to see
I just want you to set me free

VERSE 2
Maybe Next Year
There’ll be a moment
When I can call you
and we can make our peace
But I don’t think that
it’s gonna happen
It seems to me that were not meant to be
I have tried to
Make a difference
To be the one you want to see
But it’s not happening
at the moment
I guess we’ll just disagree

CHORUS
What What What what do want from me
I can’t tell what you want me to be
What What What what you want me to see
I just want you to set me free

What What What what do want me to see
What What What what do you want me to be
What What What what do want from me
What What What what do I do to be free
Track Name: The Loneliness of the Long Distance Strummer
I remember
oh so long ago
What you said to me
and what I did not know

I now know everything
I heard it from a friend
Who told me all the words
that you forgot to send

You’ve made me dream of people
I see in the dark
Who never seem to be
What they say they are

You took me to the edge
When I needed your love
what I thought was friendliness
Was really just a push

CHORUS
Out on the road I go
Where I’m going I don’t know
But I’ll be on my own
It’s the loneliness of the long distance strummer


and if I wait
Here all by myself
I think I’ll be alright
and I’ll find someone else

She will care for me
she’ll always be there
and she will love me
as much as I love her

Out on the road I;ll go
When I’m coming home she won’t know
But I’ll never be on my own
no more lonelines for the long distance strummer
Track Name: Let's Go
Let's Go
Track Name: Dressed In Black
I still remember the heart tearing love you gave
Wild and burning, a powerful heat wave
Part2
But the agent of change he came like a foe
Wearing the night as dark barren cloak

They said you were not coming back
They sent me a photograph

From naked trees I hear the stark call of crows (Dressed In Black)
On the shoulder of men I see the falling of snow (Dressed In Black)
They bear what remains to a deep earth hole (Dressed In Black)
There’s a sheet thrown over as they lower it below (Dressed In Black)

so when I see you dressed in black
I wonder if you're coming back
from the destiny you call your own
from the streets you travel all alone

we pass the hat
They pass the gun
deep black boots that kick the trails
of blood & death & coffin nails

like a man who was asking to murder (dressed in black)
like a man who would smile no further (dressed in black)
alone cause the dark reaper has come (dressed in black)
and stolen from me what I'd built my world on (dressed in black)

What did you expect of me,
make my exit dressed in black

When I open my eyes the truth comes like a slap (dressed in black)
the angel is dark, top to bottom, front and back (dressed in black)
it lays in the earth and pretends to be trapped (dressed in black)
but sneaks in my clothes, in my lungs, in my pack (dressed in black)
it denies me a life I can never get back (dressed in black)
now and forever I'll be dressed in black (dressed in black)

Dressed in black
Dressed in black
Dressed in black
Dressed in black
Track Name: Jennifer
She was born in 1973
Just a few years after me
I think we met in 93
Maybe a year or two before

She got quite lost in 99
Up to then she had seemed fine
and she was gone in 2001
When she was missing for so long

The brown leaves show something has gone wrong
Another year another summer gone
Winter’s come to Jennifer
Winters come to Jen

She came back to us in 03
But never seemed the same to me
She drove the Vegas 2 years later
Came home because her mother made her

Her past was lost 2008
I went to see her but had to wait
I got the call May 2010
I never would see Jen again

The ticking’s stops when things go wrong
I still think of her though she’s gone
Winter’s come to Jennifer
Winters come to Jen
