All of their Lives


                 Basically men are afraid of women and can't handle the fact that they came out of the same thing they spend the rest of their lives trying to get back into.

Someone I Could Be


                                All along the way there were things to do
                                Always some other someone i could be
                                Other things to know, other ways to go
                                To fly a sprit for the play to show

Out on the Edge of Town


                          I hold you in my arms as the band plays
                          What are those words whispered baby just as you turn away
                          I saw you last night out on the edge of town
                          I wanna read your mind and know just what i've got
                          in this new thing i've found
                          Is that you baby or just a brilliant disguise

There is Something Else


                   There are ordinary women and there is something else that makes you want to tear up paintings and break albums of Beethoven across the back of the john.
