Track Name: Another Tricky Romance
Another Tricky Romance

Lucky little lady lies
To whom believe her weeping eyes
She whispers poisoning lullabies
That even fool a gentle wise

I had money, she had none
She let me strip down to the bone
She’s a dumb blond girl
Who made me twirl

Sally can tell at a glance
I won’t ask for a last crippled dance
Sally can tell at a glance
She should have known
Sally can tell at a glance
It was just another tricky romance
There’s no happenstance
I should have known

Lucky little lady lies
To whom believe her weeping eyes
She whispers poisoning lullabies
That made me swirl

Sally, I don’t take your hand
This is our last goodbye
Sally, there is no promised land
You know I won’t cry
Track Name: 1978
1978


Well I heard Television on the radio today
I can see a Marquee Moon flying over my head
Well mama said
« Don’t waste your time with these foolish things »
« Ma’ ! All I wanna do now is pick up my guitar and play »

I’m so aching to sing my song
I’m so aching to be on a (big) stage

Folks, treat me right
Let me shake it up and roll the dice
Bet on me, dont think twice
I’m in sight of paradise

So, daddy said : « Better wise up, be gentle and nice »
« Dad ! All I wanna do now is pick up my guitar and play… loud, loud, loud»

I’m so aching to sing my song
I’m so aching to be on a (big) stage

Sometimes I feel like a monk in a locked cell where I dwell
Sometimes I feel like a skunk that sounds like the death knell of my ego
My head’s full of junk, I’m a refugee on a raft that sunk
I gonna do a bunk and give punks a crazy tale to tell, bye amigo
Track Name: Happiness Now
Happiness Now

I don’t believe
They want to see me shine
I don’t believe either
They’d love to lay me down
My feelings, so confused
Please, allow me to leave it all
Dreamland’s useless
Scum, scum ‘round me bring’ me down

Do I feel? Do I feel down?
Guess I’m trying’ to be polite
Do I feel? Do I feel down?
Guess I’m trying’ to be civilised
My babe, my babe, yeah

You can, you can, you can, can you?
Love makes us human
Holly doll, watch, I’m guilty… at last
You can, you can, you can, can you?
Love makes us human
I’m guilty… not to be a satisfied mind

Gimmie happiness now
I need it and I want it
