Track Name: Sweet Country Loving
SWEET COUNTRY LOVING

Sweet country loving is good for me
Baby it's mine oh mine.
The taste of butter and a cup of tea
The smell of a hot stove fire

You rocked that city right out of me from the time the stars came out
And I'll be waiting so patiently

CHORUS
I packed a suitcase filled with high heel shoes
Silk tops that shimmer in the light
But I haven't had the chance to wear them once out here
Cos you've got bigger plans for me at night

So we close the curtains, we shuf off the lights, sip on a hot whiskey
Where it's you and it's me getting hot as we can be

You rocked that city right out of me from the time the stars came out
And I'll be waiting so patiently

CHORUS
I packed a suitcase filled with high heel shoes
Silk tops that shimmer in the light
But I haven't had the chance to wear them once out here
Cos you've got bigger plans for me at night

I packed a suitcase filled with high heel shoes
Silk tops that shimmer in the light
But I haven't had the chance to wear them once out here
Cos you've got bigger plans for me at night
Cos you've got bigger plans for me at night
Cos you've got bigger plans for me at night
Track Name: Mean Gun
MEAN GUN
Sometimes I get the impression that you like feeling down
Feeling bad inspires you it keeps ideas around
Well if it's working for you, I guess there's nothing wrong
But by the way you talk I'd say that it's not

I liked it better when you took your life in stride
Filled it up with friends instead of filling it with pride
I guess it's not my business what you do with your time
But the space you point your mean gun, just make sure it isn't mine

CHORUS
But I can't figure out how to talk you
Out of thinking they're all out to get you
Or that it's all about you

I used to know you when you laughed out loud
You talked me out of bad moods even when I was proud
Well I'm not perfect as I know you recall
But lightening up a little never hurt no-one at all

CHORUS
But I can't figure out how to talk you
Out of thinking they're all out to get you
Or that it's all about you
Track Name: Dead To Me
DEAD TO ME

I washed my hands in the water, my foot is on your grave
My heart is in the future
My mind dwells on the mistakes I made so long ago
Help me let it go

Some ask why did I leave him, why didn't I stay?
I tell them that's because he was clinically insane
And I'd be no better if I'd spent another day by his side
Help me let it go

CHORUS
Cos I've got scars to prove it and not just on my skin
Tore down my soul and left me all skeleton

Now I sing you are dead to me, my foot rests proudly on your grave
You killed a part of me, but I survived you just the same
We should say goodbye now to all the madness we can't forget
Cos I can't forget you
But I can't promise I will forgive
Help me let it go
Track Name: Wild West
WILD WEST

The old west ain't as wild as they promised it to be
And the sun sets in the hills behind some buildings
And no-one rides a horse

There's no cowboys here, I haven't seen one anywhere
And the sun sets in the hills behind some buildings
And the traffics getting worse

CHORUS
Ooh
Ooh there's no cowboys here

There's no gold out here, I haven't seen it anywhere
And the sun blinds the drivers on the freeway
And no-one rides a horse

CHORUS
Ooh
Ooh there's no cowboys here

I was promised the land of milk and honey
It was sworn to me
I was never promised it would be easy
But I do believe they lied to me
Cos there's no cowboys here

CHORUS
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh there's no cowboys here
