Track Name: Turn Out The Light
It used to be warm here, now it’s cold
It used to be easy, so I’m told
Man it’s not right
It just isn’t sensible, we should be sensual
But we’re just cold

The windows are streaming, the heating’s on
We should be comfortable, what’s gone wrong?
Man it’s not right
Is it a ritual, is it something habitual?

Turn out the light, turn up the heat
Don’t walk tonight, bring on the dreams

I used to be certain, now I don’t know
What am I saying, what do I know?
Man it’s not right
It isn’t just physical, man I feel pitiful

Not everything easy, is always right
Not everything painful, is a bad sign
Man it’s not right
Is should be pleasing you, instead of just screaming at you

Turn out the light, turn up the heat
Don’t walk tonight, don’t fear the dreams
Turn out the light, turn up the heat
Don’t walk tonight, don’t fear the dreams
Track Name: Ran Thru Here
Stop pushing man you know you keep pushing if you if you keep pushing gonna push me away
I'm lying man you know I keep on trying but I
keep trying and it just doesn't change
I got nothing to say
nothing to do but look at you and sigh

Stop talking man you know you keep talking but you
keep talking when theres nothing to say
I'll listen man you know I'm gonna listen and you think that thats a reason to talk all day
I got nothing to say
nothing to do but look at you and say quiet
cos I was sleeping
well it sounds like a herd of elephants ran thru here
ran thru here
quiet cos I dont wanna hear you
I been working all day and night so wont you leave me be
leave me be

youre hurtin well you say you been hurtin well
big deal cos I'm hurtin too
what you gotta understand is that everybody's hurting
man I swear its true I got
nothing to say
nothing to do but look at you and say
Track Name: Wasting Your Time
Mama don’t feel like coming out any more
I done moved away and closed the door
And I don’t feel the way I thought I would anymore

One of these days I’m gonna open up my mind
Although I’ve tried before I’ve always been blind
And I’m not feeling quite as good anymore
But I’m trying

Don’t give up child, don’t give it up now
I still love you, I’m thinking of you
And you ain’t wasting your time

Mama don’t care to see her children in pain
And I can’t hide it so I won’t go home again
But if I work real hard and I try real hard and I heal my soul
Then I’m gonna come running

What mama don’t know about can’t amount to that much
And every time I think she’s lost her touch
She can blow me away with a single word and it sets me right again
So I better start listening

Mama, can you hear me?
I’m coming home
