    Blush
    She walks by the Indian Ocean
    As the sun sinks in the west
    From the beach a breeze is blowing
    Playing with her cotton dress
     
    All I want, I confess
    I just want to see her blush
     
    When we kiss she tastes so salty
    On her cheek and on her neck
    I can't wait 'til I get with her
    So I can kiss her salty breasts
     
    All I want, I confess
    I just want to see her blush
     
    In her room there's a little window
    With a view right down to the shore
    When night falls she lights a candle
    Oh her skin's a coat of fire!
     
    All I want, I confess
    I just want to see her blush
    I just want to see her blush
    All across her chest
    Take off her cotton dress
    I just want to see her blush

    Extra Mile
    (Written by Paul Kelly and Randy Jacobs).

    Just like the bee comes to the honey
    You're swarming all over me
    Now you got this close, eyes on the treasure
    But it don't come for free
    Can you go the extra mile?

    So you want to jump into the ocean
    Baby it's sink or swim
    Can you keep your head up above the water
    When the waves come crashing in?
    Can you go the extra mile?

    Can you stand the heat cooking in my kitchen?
    Can you see this whole thing through?
    Can you stand to get your hands all dirty?
    That's what I want from you
    Can you go the extra mile?
    Can you go the extra mile?

    I’ll Forgive But I Won’t Forget
    Sometimes the very best of friends just have to disagree
    I've seen the very best of friends part forever bitter company
    And you and I, we've had our share of ups and downs
    But we've seen each other through
    Though I have to say I always thought I was a better friend than you
    You've let me down in so many little ways
    You apologise and I always accept
    'Cause I forgive but I don't forget
     
    When you were hurt I took your pain, yeah I soaked up all your rage
    And there were times you did the same for me, though you always complained
    When all the others wrote you off I defended you, I stuck with you like glue
    You're so generous and so completely selfish and I always kind of liked that about you
    But this is one too many times you've treated me like a doormat
    Oh I'll forgive but I won't forget
     
    Dying comes at any time, living has no rules
    Forgiving may get you favours but forgetting's just for fools
     
    I can't believe she fucked you here and then fed me full of lies
    Why don't I go and get her now
    And you can fuck her again right before my eyes
    Then you two can have each other
    You deserve each other I bet
    And I'll forgive but I won't forget
    I won't forget
    I'll forgive but I won't forget

    Queen Stone

    (Written by Maurice Frawley and Shane Walsh).

    She came to me without warning?
    Now she's taking up all my time
    It's give you can't get rid of
    It’s lonesome, it's a crime

    Oh Queen Stone I can't get you off of my mind

    She held me with her promise?
    She held me 'til the dawn?
    But she stole from me this morning?
    Left me shivering here all alone

    Oh Queen Stone I can't get you off of my mind?
    Oh Queen Stone don't it burn, burn, burn

    I see her in ever shadow?
    And in every darkened room?
    It's a give you can't get rid of?
    Now it's taking up all my time

    Oh Queen Stone I can't get you off of my mind?
    Oh Queen Stone don't it burn, burn, burn

    Deeper Water

    (Written by Paul Kelly and Randy Jacobs).

    On a crowded beach in a distant time
    At the height of summer see a boy of five
    At the water's edge so nimble and free
    Jumping over the ripples looking way out to sea

    Now a man comes up from amongst the throng
    Takes the young boy's hand and his hand is strong
    And the child feels safe, yeah the child feels brave
    As he's carried in those arms up and over the waves

    Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling them on

    Let's move forward now and the child's seventeen
    With a girl in the back seat tugging at his jeans
    And she knows what she wants, she guides with her hand
    As a voice cries inside him – I'm a man, I'm a man!

    Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling him on
    Now the man meets a woman unlike all the rest
    He doesn't know it yet but he's out of his depth
    And he thinks he can run, it's a matter of pride
    But he keeps coming back like a cork on the tide

    Well the years hurry by and the woman loves the man
    Then one night in the dark she grabs hold of his hand
    Says 'There, can you feel it kicking inside!'
    And the man gets a shiver right up and down his spine

    Deeper water, deeper water, deeper water, calling them on

    So the clock moves around and the child is a joy
    But Death doesn't care just who it destroys
    Now the woman gets sick, thins down to the bone
    She says 'Where I'm going next, I'm going alone'

    On a distant beach lonely and wild
    At a later time see a man and a child
    And the man takes the child up into his arms
    Takes her over the breakers
    To where the water is calm

    Deeper water, deeper water,
    deeper water, calling them on

    Madeleine’s Song
    When I dream at night it's you I see walking
    And in the dream I hear you laughing and talking
    When I'm all alone it's you that I'm missing
    When I think of fun it's you that I'm kissing
    My sweet Madeleine, my sweet Madeleine
    My, my Madeleine, you never let me sleep
     
    One of these old days you'll have yourself a boyfriend
    But you'll always know my love will never end
    When you cry so hard I wish you'd stop sobbing
    You're gonna grow up soon and just want to go shopping
    My sweet Madeleine, my sweet Madeleine
    My, my Madeleine, you never let me sleep

    Difficult Woman
     
    A difficult woman
    Sometimes hurts her friends when she don't mean to
    A difficult woman
    Makes it hard for the ones she loves
    It's easy to do
    She's had to be tough all of her life
    So she's built herself a wall
    She doesn't know how to trust herself
    So it's hard for her to trust at all
    A difficult woman needs a special kind of friend
     
    A difficult woman
    Swings between shame and pride
    A difficult woman
    Has strong, strong stuff deep inside
    And getting to her is no easy affair
    It's like working in a mine
    You'd better prepare to pay the price
    If it's treasure you want to find
    A difficult woman needs a special kind of friend
     
    And living with her is better and worse
    Than living with anyone else
    She can be cruel or so kind
    Oh you go from heaven to hell
    If she got what she wanted
    If she got what she needed
    She wouldn't be hard to understand
    A difficult woman needs a special kind of man

    Give In To My Love
    Have you heard the news of my love?
    Did they send a message down
    That I'm on the march with my love?
    And I'm death or glory bound
    From the mountains to the marshes
    My love is gaining ground
    Give in to my love, give in to my love
     
    Well I want to show you my love
    It's bigger than a Cadillac
    But you keep up your resistance
    And you try to drive me back
    I want to show you all my love
    It's bigger than a Cadillac
    Give in to my love, give in to my love
     
    My love is like a drunkard
    Holding up the bar
    And he'll say the same thing over
    And he'll fix you with his stare
    You try and change the subject
    But you won't escape the war
    Give in to my love, give in to my love
    Give in to my love, give in to my love

    I’ve Been A Fool

    (Written by Paul Kelly and Randy Jacobs).

    So you want a second chance
    You want to start again, make everything alright
    But I want to know if you've changed this time
    Baby don't lie, don't you lie to me
    What do you take me for?
    I've been a fool, anyone can see
    But I'll be your fool no more

    You've got a way of talking
    You could sell a poor man a bottle of air
    But I want to know if you've changed at all
    Baby don't lie, don't you lie to me
    I've heard it all before
    I've been a fool, most definitely
    But I'll be your fool no more

    Everybody loves you, I still love you
    I want you back, I need you now
    But I want to know
    Have you changed your spots at all?
    Baby don't lie, baby don't lie
    I've been a fool, I've been a fool

    Anastasia Changes Her Mind
    Anastasia left a kiss on the mirror
    And a couple of condoms by the bed
    I tried to find her on her old number
    But I just got her boyfriend instead
    Oh it's hard, so hard
    When Anastasia changes her mind
     
    So I went back to working the quadrellas
    I collected three times in a row
    I swear it must have been that kiss on the mirror
    That I'd touch with my lips just for luck each time I'd go
    Oh it's hard, very hard
    When Anastasia changes her mind
     
    Now the numbers were my daily devotion
    I was stashing big bills in the floor
     
    Then one night at my door a commotion
    Anastasia-at some ungodly hour!
    I said 'Baby can I fix you a coffee
    And tomorrow let me buy you a dress
    Since you've been gone I got lucky'
    She just nodded her head and said 'I guess'
    Oh it's hard, yeah it's hard
    When Anastasia changes her mind
     
    Now 'Stacey' takes the crumbs from the table
    And feeds them out back to the birds
    Me, I can't even pick the daily double
     
    Since that kiss on the mirror disappeared
    Yeah it's hard, ain't it hard
    When Anastasia changes her mind

    California
    California-I can taste you even now
    California-I'll get back to you somehow
    I still see you in my dreams
    I hear your name on every tongue
    It's been so long
                           
    California-You whispered to me all last night
    California-With your beauty like a knife
    I can hear your siren song
    Calling me back to your shore
    To die once more, California
     
    California-I took my story to the well
    California-You're still eating at my soul
    How I miss your greedy eyes
    Our golden days, our purple nights

    I'll pay the price, oooh California

    Gathering Storm

    (Written by Paul Kelly and Jex Saarrelaht)

    I had a dream
    I saw you walking down the road
    In a gathering storm

    Wind on the rise
    A black crow was flying
    You alone in a gathering storm

    I wake up alone in my bed
    There's nothing before my eyes
    And outside the door
    Only the sighing
    And you out there in a gathering storm

    So cover your head
    Keep your eyes open
    Make speed in the gathering storm

    I rise up and turn on the light
    Now it's shining in my window
    My walls are strong
    My chimney's smoking
    God speed you
    In the gathering storm
