Justice In The Barrel

"Hey mister can you help me
I’m a loner on the run
I’m just looking for tomorrow
And I ain’t gonna hurt no one

I jumped headfirst into a bottle
I was looking for a friend
Came up just short of nothing
I didn’t find the truth I only found an end

So tell me who’s gonna save me
Or my father or my son
When the only justice a man can see
Is the barrel… of a loaded gun

I been broke and I’ve been hungry
I think they’re both my middle name
But I don’t never ever never seem to get enough
Still guess I can’t complain

‘Cause what you get in life you take it
You’ve gotta hold on and make it last
They say good things come to those who wait
But it’s life that goes so fast

And when there’s just one rule you live by
Each day you kiss the rising sun
When you live and die by the life we breathe
In the barrel of a loaded gun

The Price Of Love

One Heart one other
They met last summer
One move she started
Now they love this way
The pain of pleasure
lying together
You’re at their mercy
As the telephone’s ringing on
No one said there’d be nights like this
Risk your life for a stolen kiss
We live

This Ain’t A Lovesong

"I should have seen it coming when the roses died
Should have seen the end of summer in your eyes
I should have listened when you said good night
You really meant good bye

Baby ain’t it funny how you never ever learn to fall
You’re really on your knees when you think you’re standing tall
But only fools are know-it-alls and I’ve played that fool for you

I cried and cried every night
There were nights that I died for you baby
I tried and I tried to deny it that your love drove me crazy baby

If the love that I got for you is gone
If the river I’ve cried ain’t that long
Then I’m wrong yeah I’m wrong
This ain’t a love song

Baby I thought you and me would
Stand the test of time
Like we got away with the perfect crime
But we were just a legend in my mind
I guess that I was blind

Remember those nights dancing a...

Blaze Of Glory

I wake up in the morning
And I raise my weary head
I got an old coat for a pillow
And the earth was last night’s bed
I don’t know where I’m going
Only God knows where I’ve been
I’m a devil on the run
A six gun lover
A candle in the wind
When you’re brought into this world
They say you’re born in sin
Well at least they gave me something
I didn’t have to steal or have to win
Well they tell me that I’m wanted
Yeah I’m a wanted man
I’m cold in your stable
I’m what Cain was to Abel
Mister catch me if you can
Chorus:
I’m going down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I’m going down in a blaze of glory
Lord I never drew first
But I drew first blood
I’m no ones son
Call me young gun
You ask about my consience
And I offer you my soul
You ask If I’ll grow to be a wise man
Well I ask if I’ll grow old
You ask me if ...

It’s My Life

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

It’s my life
And it’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I’m alive
‘Cause it’s my life

Better stand ta...
