Track Name: Love Has Done Me Wrong
If you got love I don’t want it
take it somewhere else
Please don’t knock at my door again,
for love has done me wrong

If you got pain I could use some
At least it tells the truth
Like a straight shot of bourbon
It always carries through

Hey mister I thought I told you, don’t bring love around
It’s only pain I have to gain, won’t you leave this town?
I’ve done all I can do, said all I can say,
If you won’t go, I’m leaving today,
For love has done me wrong

I don’t need no happy thinking
No sunny day parade
All I need is the snow falling down
And piling in the shade

And if you run by love again,
Tell it I’m dead and gone, boys,
Tell it I’m dead and gone, boys
Tell it I’m dead and gone
Track Name: Brighton Sunrise
In the dark without a path
On the long and crowded passage
A muddy march, an open patch
Open bottles, a bonfire, lit matches

Am I gonna see the sunrise when the party’s over?
I guess I'll just see this night through

2 AM, across the sea,
In a circle of acquaintances
The grass is wet, George is gone
I make attempts at faceless sentences

Now I see the sun the rise, and the party’s over
And the feeling passes away
Green hills in the distance, relatively sober,
Rise up into the next day
