Zig Zag Drag 02:39
You don’t have to cry, girl You know heavy troubles weigh on my mind And we don’t have to fight, girl I’ve seen only worries behind your eyes But lately she’s sad Take that zig zag drag You don’t have to lie, girl You know you can tell me anything And you don’t have to hide, girl I want you to show me everything But lately she’s sad Take that zig zag drag You don’t have to cry, girl I’ve seen only worries behind your eyes And we don’t have to fight, girl You know heavy troubles weigh on my mind

Gold Of Mine 01:46
You can’t think how glad I’d be to see you there Gold of mine Gold of mine And I had never, ever dreamed I’d see you there Gold of mine Gold of mine She’s all mine But you can see her shine If you want to Yes, I would give most anything just to see you there Gold of mine Gold of mine Shes all mine But you can see her shine If you want to

This is science, rock and roll Science, rock and roll The silence makes you strange, man No man needs nothing that he owns No cash, no car to drive, and no home This is science, rock and roll Science, rock and roll The silence makes you strange, man No man knows nothing that he knows And he’ll never see it on his own Nobody needs to be alone This is science, rock and roll This is science, rock and roll Science, rock and roll The silence makes you strange, man

There is a little girl inside who haunts the floor Somehow I never seemed to notice her before And she moves so strangely The way she moves is strangely She floats in through the crowd beneath the quiet noise A sad and lonesome cloud of undiscovered joys And she moves so strangely The way she moves is strangely And I hope that she will kiss me I don’t want her to miss me She makes most everything seem good Strange moves Strange moves

Having Wine 02:10
Well, I’m working late and I’m working hard Working real late and I’m working to hard I only wanna ease my aching mind So I make my way across the floor Gotta look out cause I gotta be sure That no one’s gonna see me on the side Cause I’m Having wine Having wine The first one’s down but I want some more I got a new friend and it’s time to pour I’m only here to please and so I’ll please my mind I think it’s working now and it’s working good Working right now and I’m feeling so good I only had to ease my aching mind I’m Having wine Having wine I have it all the time, yeah Having wine I’m turning time with a borrowed screw Serving me right in a better mood I got no thing to ache my easy mind I said I got no thing to ache my easy mind I said I got no thing to ache my easy mind

I’ve got nobody but that’s okay I’m leaving this town in a matter of days The future ain’t what it used to be The future ain’t what it used to be Asleep all day and awake at night I think I may fall off the edge of my mind The future ain’t what it used to be The future ain’t what it used to be No shirt, no shoes No work for me to do I found somebody who really cares I lift up my head now there’s nobody there The future ain’t what it used to be The future ain’t what it used to be You know, I’m so confused I’ve got no time to lose The future ain’t what it used to be The future ain’t what it used to be The future ain’t what it used to be

I’m tired of playing this game Feeling this way Im tired I’m tired of hanging around Wearing a frown So tired I’m tired of this world Tired of this world I’m tired of taking the ride It’s breaking my mind When you were loving me You were destroying me (6x) I’m tired of singing this song And it won’t be long Til I’m dreaming

I thought I’d be happy Loving you Happy loving you I want to be happy Loving you Happy loving you I’ve met a lot of girls but never one like you And I’ve seen a lot of things but kept my eye on you Yes, I want to be happy Loving you Happy loving you I’d say that you might be the best I’ve ever seen I look into your eyes as if I’m in a dream I want to be happy Loving you Happy loving you Happy loving you Happy loving you

This empty room will soon be filled This empty room will soon be filled We’re going to fill it to the brim And we’ll let everybody in This empty room will soon be filled This empty room will soon be filled And you won’t recognize your friends You won’t know if it’s here or him You know it’s going to be soon like it was It’s good to see you here again And those of you who’ve never been You know it’s going to be soon like it was This empty room will soon be filled This empty room will soon be filled This empty room will soon be filled
