Track Name: Maiden China
[Verse 1]
I was on my way back home found myself alone
It was late long in the light less night and I found myself alone
Cause my friends had all left me in this state that I was in
I had no one I could turn to then I saw you

[Chorus]
You were the maiden china
The girl who lived next door
You were my shanghai mama
What I was waiting for

Carry me back home my dear
The night is falling on us here
Love me now and I’ll love you too
Be my maid in china

[Verse 2]
Maid in china tell me what's your name the name that you use
Is it Emilie or Mary Jane Lou tell me what name do you use
Will you spend your life without me will you die with me inside
I can't give you any reason except when I saw you

[Chorus]

Be my maid in be my little maid in
Be my maid in be my little maid in China
Track Name: Finally Got The Time
[Verse 1]
Well I finally got the time the time to tell you
Just what is exactly on my mind
And if you feel like you don't deserve the words I’m giving
Then I guess it's up to me to re-design

[Verse 2]
If I feel like you think that I'm gonna give it up now
It's best to stress that you have lost your mind
Cause I will never be the kind of man who will give up now
And so I feel it's time to say goodbye

[Background of Verse 2]
Now that I finally got the time yeah I think that you can know right now
Just what is exactly on my mind
If you’re feeling like you really don’t deserve all the words that I’m giving you
Then I guess it’s up to me to re-design

[Chorus]
And all along though my love for you was true
I had this awful feeling in my soul
On and on until my heart had broke for you
I knew the time had come for you to know

[Verse 3]
Well I should hate but I don’t mind the way you treat me
The passing years have fashioned me to feel this way
I cannot reach nor can I pull from this fear that’s moving me
To lonely death or losing you it’s all the same

[Chorus]

Now that you finally got the time that you finally got the
Now that you finally got the time that you finally got the
Now that you finally got the time that you finally got the
Now that you finally got the time that you finally got the

[Outro]
Now that I finally got the time yeah I think that you can know right now
(I think you should know it baby)
Just what is exactly on my mind
(What's been on my mind)
If you're feeling like you really don't deserve all the words that I'm giving you (you don't deserve these words)
Then I guess it's up to me to re-design
(I'm gonna re-design)

[Verse 1]
Some people say that it's always been this way
But I'm not so sure I've been there many times before
Oh but now it doesn't seem all the same
But I still remember the name

Mr. Larry scary carousel (x2)

[Verse 2]
She took my hand as we gave our tickets to the man
Then we got on the wheel oh how scared I used to feel but now
But now it doesn’t seem all the same
I guess it's that I'm older that's too blame

Mr. Larry scary carousel (x2)

[Verse 3]
High up as we both go round and round and round
As I make this scary carousel sound
Na na ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Ah ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

[Verse 4]
When we reach the top we'll be so far from the ground
I'm sure we'll die if we ever both fall down
But don't you worry no you and I will be fine on

Mr. Larry scary carousel (x4)

And I’m looking right at Mr. taxi Rick
He says to me much to my surprise
Complimentary taxi ride

Yeah taxi driver yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: I'm Wearing My Raincoat
I’m Wearing My Raincoat
By Robbie Tucker
Copyright 2017

I’m wearing my raincoat you and I dance in the rain
Joking and smiling what am i worth to you
It's powerful isn't it you I'm losing you aren't I
You love me don't you we shouldn't run away
I watch from the tower as all of you dance
The moon looks the same I'm wearing my raincoat

Ahh ahh ahh

I'm killing myself with too many cigarettes
I can't ever sleep but I'm dreaming of suicide
My friends think I'm crazy and at the very same time so do I
I'm wearing my raincoat please somebody help me
I'm here in the closet waiting for Veronica to call

So I must leave you all alone
And never call you again
The game ended by telephone
And she never seen him again

Ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh

I’m wearing my raincoat you and I romance through the pain
I’ve fallen so hard I’m more broken than I am bruised
I’m lost for a reason I’m losing you aren’t I
It’s powerful isn’t it we shouldn’t run away
The moon looks the same as all of you dance
I fall from the tower I’m wearing my raincoat

So I must leave you all alone
And never call you again
The game ended by telephone
And she never seen him again

Ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh

I’m thrilling myself with so many demons yet
I have no control but I’m praying for suicide
The end might amaze me but at the very same time I’m not sure
I’m wearing my raincoat nobody can help me
I’m scared in my raincoat please somebody help me
I’ll die in this closet waiting for Veronica to call

Ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh
Ahh ahh ahh
Track Name: Never Forever
Never Forever
By Robbie Tucker
Copyright 2017

My head is full of poisoned thoughts
And it's ripping my brain apart
My soul has turned a very ugly shade
And it's leaking into my heart

The king inside my head says to get out of your bed
I am the master of all that you do
And when it's easier I will try to make you decide
Between the freedom of hell that you choose

Now ever since it began I don't know who that I am
All i know is i don't feel like me
It's like my soul is on fire and all the things I desire
Is all I can manage to see

If you come over we could cuddle in my bed
If you come over I’ll do everything i said
If you come over I promise till I die
I will love you

If you come over we could cuddle in my bed
If you come over I’ll do everything i said
If you come over I promise till I die
I will love you I will love you

I remember the day that you walked through the door
Leaving your bike in the shade
I could hardly believe when you said you adored
The way that my heart had been made

I was frazzled and dazzled you turned me around
The best looking man in the room
I would write you some songs but then slowly I'd die
Then leave you alone on the moon

I know it's dark outside but lets go for a ride
Who knows what we might find
And though your love is asleep your head has become weak
And I’ve taken control of your mind

Caught in a day that has gone on for weeks
Decided that you were too tall
Instead I must stay in my head like a freak
Where I really have nothing at all

Bleeding my brain is so out of control
Yeah no matter the strength I apply
Feeling the pain that is rotting my soul
And I wish I’d just fucking die

Now our love is unfolding as I struggle in my head
Ever since I told you what needed to be said
I just want to hold you and though everything is dead
Baby I still love you I still love you
Track Name: Johnny Johnny John
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny John
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny John

There was a boy just a beautiful boy
Just a boy just a beautiful boy
With beautiful hair and some glasses downstairs
On the floor next to tissues and toys

And he was so careful occasionally
Sat on the floor next to mommy and me
And when he stood up with his hands feeling rough
Here's what he said to me

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny John
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny John

Now the round carousel had a lemony smell
Sargent Crumble was talking to me
The boy and his hands grew up into a man
So exhausted unusually

What’s in the closet that’s hid by the door
What are the locks and the paper signs for
A rope and a man sang with Tony Tones band
As they danced a dim symphony chord

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny John
Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny John

And every single day I miss you cause I know your never ever coming home
Didn't Johnny give you love from me when you were talking with him on the phone
Did he give you all the reasons that I gave him did you even hear him say I love you

If you look in my eyes Johnny what do you see
Do you see how much I love you do you Oh do you Johnny yeah

Johnny was a rebel and his head was never level uh huh
Johnny went to school but Johnny only played the fool uh huh
Yeah Johnny he could see it and he knew that he could be it uh huh
So his father told him so if you want it Johnny go

So he sang and played his old Vanguard
And he went places oh so far away
Yeah from singing words to writing songs
Moving them with all the ones he played

As the lights went down
As he made such a melodic sound
And we swayed in the crowded crowd
As Johnny Johnny played Johnny John was oh so proud

And he played to the crowded crowd
As Johnny Johnny sang Johnny John was oh so proud
And around Johnny John were all his fans
Singing Johnny’s songs with him and Tony Tone's band
Track Name: Too Much Coffee
Too Much Coffee
By Robbie Tucker
Copyright 2016

She had too much a that black coffee
Keeping me awake all night
Running the bathroom water
Leaving on all of the lights

Too much coffee makes her nervous
Too much coffees gonna bring her down
Too much coffee will spoil the surface

Too much coffee always brings her down

Oh you know I need her (He really needs her he really needs her)
Oh you know I love her (He really loves her he really loves her)
Baby oh you should see her

Too much coffees gonna bring her all the way down
Too much coffee will spoil the surface
In any case when anyone’s around
Too much coffee always brings her down

Oh you know I need her (He really needs her he really needs her)
Oh you know I want her (He really wants her he really wants her)
Baby oh you should see her

Too much coffee makes her nervous
Too much coffee brings her down

In any case when anyone’s around
In every case when anyone’s around
Too much coffee only brings her down
Track Name: Penny Wednesday
She came home on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)
She needed more on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)
She let go on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)
She stayed home on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)

Penny waited up all night long
For her mother to come home
When she waited up much too long
She had to call her on the phone

She got strong on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)
She grew tall on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)
She gave her all on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)
She stayed strong on a Wednesday (Penny Wednesday)

Penny asked mom is something wrong
It doesn’t sound like you’re alone
Mom I waited up all night long
I just wanna know when you’ll be home

And your love is like a mystery to me
It’s just like living in a painting
But whatever lifts her up is gonna be what brings her home
On a Penny Wednesday

Penny waited up all night long
For her mother to come home
Track Name: The Death Of Tall Tom
I stood up from the ground
I pushed myself up with my hands
My hands were covered in sand
And tall Toms blood

I’d been hot on tall Toms trail
He’d killed my wife took her away
And it changed me to a man
Who searched for blood

And it had been such a long time
Since he took my love away
Without as much as a second thought
That I would make him pay

And though this might not be the right thing
This death won’t right his wrong
Then in a breath my bullet caused his death
And tall Tom was gone

Though I see my enemy cold and dead in front of me
I see now that it did not bring her back
I just killed a lonely man the same lonely man that I now am
There is no earthly way I’m going back

Tall Tom was a man who made a plan that he could follow through
And if someone had to die well so too bad
He drank good whiskey didn’t talk
No he didn’t care and only lived to taunt
That’s why he had to die for all he’d done

And even though it is too late now
To question certain things
Like how the evil things he did throughout his life
Had brought him here to me

Now it has all ended with my pistol
With one cold shot into his head
Tall Tom fell as tall Tom died
Then tall Tom was dead

Though I see my enemy cold and dead in front of me
I see now that it did not bring her back
I just killed a lonely man the same lonely man that I now am
There is no earthly way I’m going back

Though I see my enemy cold and dead in front of me
I see now that it did not bring her back
I just killed a lonely man the same lonely man that I now am
There is no earthly way I’m going back
Not going back
Not going back yeah
Track Name: Hope Is All We Have
Took a little walk
A walk around the world
I met a little boy
And a broken hearted girl

A tear came from her eye
Directly from her soul
As it rolled down her cheek
She wanted me to know

This doesn't mean I've given up
It just means I am sad
I'd never dream of giving up
No I'll give it all I have

I opened up my eyes
The world came rushing in
When you open up your mind
That's when the hope begins

We never need to give it up
When it's looking mighty bad
We must believe that we are tough
And give it all we have

Hope is what we need
Hope is all we have
Hope is in our hearts
So hope away the bad

We never need to give it up
When it's looking mighty bad
We must believe that we are tough
And give it all we have

We never need to give it up
When it's looking mighty bad
We must believe that we are tough
And give it all we have
Track Name: Lazy Paul And The Fair Maid
Well I don’t have eyes in the back of my head
I can only go as far as my body says
I don’t make the rules I just play the game
Honey I don’t lie so how could I be to blame (Be to blame)
Don’t you ever think about anything but yourself

Lazy Paul and The Fair Maid
Sent the chickens right back to school
To learn proper math and how to photograph
Like all good chickens do (like chickens like like chickens)

Lazy Paul and The Fair Maid
Took the best of what they had
Sold em all to buy a rubber ball
And then said it was a passing fad (That fad went right on by)

Lazy Paul and The Fair Maid
Liked to keep things short and sweet
So I hope you all enjoyed this song
Cause this is where the end and the beginning meet
