Treat me right, baby, I won't treat you wrong Treat me right, baby, I won't treat you wrong I can't love you, baby, 'til your man is gone. Hold me close, or baby don't hold me at all Hold me close, or baby don't hold me at all Love slips through a loose grip, and I'm bound to fall. Don't tell me lies, don't leave me feeling black and blue Whispered words of how your love for me is true If you can't treat me right, I can't keep on loving you.

I have never let you down But you can't keep pulling my heart around. There's nothing that I would not do For just one night away with you My mind aches, my heart breaks Baby please come back to me On a lonely midnight stroll No companion but the bitter cold. She stole my heart when she left me The Prettiest Thief that I have ever seen. My mind aches, my heart breaks Baby please come back to me Can't go back, we can't move on Can't cut the track with all these scars But if you could only see The wicked shape in which you left me. My mind aches, my heart breaks Baby please come back to me

Wicked Woman 04:28
You see her creeping in the night With nothing but a thought You can't make shadows without light And her flame is hot Wicked Woman Wicked Woman Darkness slipping through her fingers Permeates the air Reignite the spark that lingers No evil can compare Wicked Woman Wicked Woman Reminisce on days gone by Wrong can't be undone Take the darkness if you try Wicked has won Wicked Woman Wicked Woman

Dreamily 05:39
Just another moment alone in my head Before I can break away for what lies ahead Sometimes it seems to me, at no fault of my own The cost of this moment is more than what's shown. And I won't deny, this is not what I had in mind And to my surprise, this world is not paradise. I don't belong in this world that I'm in It's just that I'm too far gone. How do I begin again? And I won't deny, this is not what I had in mind But won't it be nice to wake to my paradise. Dreamily it comes to me, I'm not all I dreamt I could be When I wake I hope you see a better man than I use to be Dreamily it comes to me, I'm not all I dreamt I could be When I wake I hope you see a better man than I used to be. Stuck in a moment, though not my intention Bound by a wistful heed, a conscious abstention. And I won't deny, this is not what I had in mind But what will suffice is being more than alive Dreamily it comes to me, I'm not all I dreamt I could be When I wake I hope you see a better man than I use to be Dreamily it comes to me, I'm not all I dreamt I could be When I wake I hope you see a better man than I used to be.

Take me back to better days When the sun shined high When the rain brought summer rays As it washed on by I'm tired of living life in quarantine Won't you please come and rescue me Isolation is killing me Driving me insane Had about all I can take Of meals in cellophane I'm tired of living life in quarantine Won't you please come and rescue me Prisoner inside my own my mind Fugitive of life Hurts me down so deep inside Cuts me like a knife I'm tire of living life in quarantine Won't you please come and rescue me

Highwayman 03:28
Down on the highway on the eastern shore All through the valley to the western ward The Highwayman, running down the fool, the Highwayman Stand and deliver your goods, gold, and girl He won't take her hostage, she'll follow of her own accord A smooth operator, a devil with a silver tongue It's no competition. It's all for his own fun Don't try fight him, the brawl's already won You can't help but like him, your girl's as good as gone Down on the highway no man is free to roam All through the valley, the highway's his home The Highwayman, running down the fool, the Highwayman

The Refugee 04:40
A cold damp night, feeling low The winter wind's a stinging blow The evening comes just to remind The Refugee, he's out of time The Refugee, a heavy soul On the run with nowhere to go The night ensues, relentless and cruel Bound restraints of its only rule No time for the Refugee, no love or sympathy The night has come for the day There can't be light and in the dead of night No man can find his way No time for the Refugee, no love or sympathy The night has come for the day There can't be light and in the dead of night No man can find his way The Refugee has lost his way Runs no more, lets come what may A hopeless soul in an unfair fight The Refugee gives way to the night No time for the Refugee, no love or sympathy The night has come for the day There can't be light and in the dead of night No man can find his way No time for the Refugee, no love or sympathy The night has come for the day There can't be light and in the dead of night The Refugee lost his way

Waiting 04:06
Waiting on a another song Time keeps on moving along Maybe just one more day A melody is gonna find our way In every moment you can find Just a little peace of mind I get this feeling down deep inside That maybe, just maybe, we'll be alright Waiting for a sign To show me the way to the finish line And I know it won't be long I'll hum my tune and sing my song In every moment you can find Just a little peace of mind ooh I get this feeling down deep inside That maybe, just maybe, we'll be maybe just maybe we'll be alright.

No Evil Love 05:05
No one knows what it is you've been through And those scars are not what define you It's not about what's been done But where you go once you know you've won Gone away are the pains of years past What remains are the stains that may last There's no last lap in this race So don't let it go to waste There's a price that's been paid by a man Cast away by the hole of his hand Now replaced by a mourning dove There can be no evil love
10.
Can't help but sing about the way you make me feel Can't help but sing about the way you make me feel Too good to be true, baby, I can't tell what's real Treats me better than a queen would treat a king Treats me better than a queen would treat a king I'm her all, she's my everything Kisses sweeter than a sugar coated dream Kisses sweeter than a sugar coated dream Love so good, darlin', there's no in between Hold her in my arms late at night It's oh so good, feels oh so right Morning comes with the light it brings That morning dew, the birds that sing I'm her all, she's my everything. She's my breeze in the summer heat When autumn falls, she's my evergreen I don't care what the winter brings Cause she'll keep me warm all through 'til spring I'm her all, she's my everything The way I feel, baby, I can't help but sing The way I feel, I can't help but sing I'm her all, she's my everything

Trouble 05:55
Trouble, trouble on my mind There ain't no use, ain't no use in trying To ease my mind of aches and pains Trouble with me all of my days Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind I've been mistreated for far too long My only peace is singing my song. So pray for me, Lord hear my plea This trouble of mine won't let me be. Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind This trouble of mine won't let me be. It hurts so bad I could not see That my own trouble is but a coal In a world on fire of tortured souls Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind Trouble, Trouble, Trouble on my mind
12.
Excuses 08:09
You've got no more excuses, baby So now tell me where have you been? You've got no more excuses, baby So tell me where have you been? I've never seen two as close as you And that man who's "just a friend." You come home early in the morning With a brand new reason why You come home early in the morning With a brand new reason why But I've heard this same old story, babe It's just packaged in a new disguise. Every time I trust you, baby You make me out to be the fool Every time I trust you, baby You make me out to be the fool And just as soon as I learn my lesson You send me right back to school. Don't try to change my mind 'Cause you'll never change your ways Don't try to change my mind 'Cause you'll never change your ways You've got no more excuses, baby So save your breath and walk away
