Didn’t Come Here To Be Alone

Leaving
Composed by Chris Altmann © Mushroom Music Publishing

How could you be, understood all the time?
I understand, you committed no crime
He still holds your hand
So stop being childish and let go of mine

Hidden away, you don’t need anyone
Your side of town, I just can’t have any fun
I’d be your clown
But I don’t wanna do things that I already done

I don’t like drivin’ through this, part of the neighbourhood
I don’t wanna taste the air you’re breathin’
Keep all your sympathy, I don’t want apologies now
It must be time that I was leavin’, leavin’

Big empty room, I’ve thrown your letters away
My poison pen’s, got a new place to stay
I’m not givin’ in
I just wanna find out what I can and can’t say

I really don’t, wanna see your pretty face
There is no room, and I can’t make any space
Well I’m on tender hooks
Just waitin’ to see you ’round the place

Silence
Composed by Chris Altmann © Mushroom Music Publishing

Nobody argues when she’s breathin’ fire
Someone who gets what she wants
Nobody argues when they call you a liar
They’ve been sayin’ that for months

She’s a girl on a hot tin roof
She’s a hell cat hound
Ah, but silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you, from you

Where is she goin’ and what has she done?
Why’s her face all in knots?
Wearin’ the glasses to see through the night
She walks at night a lot

She’s a girl on a hot tin roof
She’s a hell cat hound
Ah, but silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you, from you

It’s not a problem ’cause she’s got it already beat
She clutches her purse as she crosses the side of the street
She could try to show you but she don’t even know you that well
After 24 years you’d think you’d be able to tell

She doesn’t care about the things in your wallet
Or the things that you’ve done
She’s got to get to that business appointment
It’s really not much fun

She’s a girl on a hot tin roof
She’s a hell cat hound
Ah, but silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you
Ah, silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires
Silence is all she desires from you, from you

Capsule
Composed by Chris Altmann © Mushroom Music Publishing

Well, this house looks different from when I saw it last
And that was only yesterday
There’s noises comin’ from the ceilin’ and the floor
Some feelin’s never go away

There’s dirty dishes sittin’ in a dirty sink
And they’ll never get back to their friends ‘cause
I won’t clean them even though I wish I could
I’ve got no precious time to spend

If I were two feet smarter
I would be workin’ harder
Please don’t assume that I don’t care
Can’t get a good reception
Only a great reflection
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me

The garden where we sat on sunny afternoons is
Lookin’ cold like it might rain
Be careful where you walk, don’t step on those shiny stones
The leaves are blockin’ up the drain

If I were two feet smarter
I would be workin’ harder
Please don’t assume that I don’t care
Can’t get a good reception
Only a great reflection
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me

I never been someone who’s beaten easily
But I never wear a wedding ring
But I’ll just be happy if can make it out the door
Knowin’ I’m missin’ everything

If I were two feet smarter
I would be workin’ harder
Please don’t assume that I don’t care
Can’t get a good reception
Only a great reflection
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me
My capsule’s runnin’ out on me

Hours Away
Composed by Mikey Madden © Mushroom Music Publishing

Where are you today?
When my life’s still down this way
I can see what you thought of me

Look hard to see
What you gave to me and put it in the mail
When your bread went stale

Did I just come here to be alone today?
Keep your eyes on the clock ‘cause you’re hours away

Drink up and lay down
It’s the perfect town to lose your mind
If you’ve got the time

Take a trip down south like a told you to
Put your thumb in your mouth like you always do
And we’ll have a time

Did I just come here to be alone today?
Keep your eyes on the clock ‘cause you’re hours away
Hope you’ve got the time tonight when you’re hours away

Do you mind the clothes I’m in
Would you change into someone’s skin
‘Cause I don’t mind
I don’t mind where you go

The road keeps me up
The noise pounds like a fist on a paper cup
I’ll stay awake for you

Hello Again
Composed by Chris Altmann © Mushroom Music Publishing

Open the door, walk inside
I must be happy, see me smile
What’s goin’ on, in your life?
Now you’re in love, yes I know
Please don’t invite me to the show
That doesn’t mean I have to go

And I thought I knew you well
A long time ago, a long time ago
Now I just can’t seem to tell
If you’re my friend
But you look so happy now
Look at your face, look at your face
And it’s good to know there’s somethin’ there again

Look at the shelves, they’ve all changed
There’s different pictures in the frames
Who are your friends, what’s their names?
You’re movin’ on like it’s a race
I look in the mirror, I see your face
Wish that you’d slow down the pace

Well I tried not to be cruel
I’m in control, I’m in control
Even though I wanted to, I was restrained
Now, I’m glad that we still talk
We’re doin’ fine, we’re doin’ fine
And I’m burnin’ out the memories in my brain

Yeah we’ll be just who we are
We won’t pretend, we won’t pretend
We’ll show that it’s all water, down a drain
Well it’s time for me to go
I’ll say goodbye, I’ll say goodbye
I’ll kiss your cheek and you will do the same

Open the door, walk inside
I must be happy, see me smile
What’s goin’ on, in your life?
Now that we’re done, with the chase
I hear you’re lettin’, out the space
Like what you’ve done, to the place
Hello again it’s good to see your face

Beautiful Skin
Composed by Chris Altmann © Mushroom Music Publishing

You ride in cars with strangers
Nobody scares you now
You only want those good times
Run fast but don’t look down

You’re not worried ‘bout your future
But there’s nothing wrong with that
You’re livin’ fast and reckless
Your world’s a welcome mat

Some day I’ll find my way
Out of the grasp of your beautiful skin
I could’ve gave you all my days
But your love I just couldn’t win
Your love I just couldn’t win

Your face still looks so youthful
Your smile’s still full of fun
You look so strong and healthy
Your make-up’s always done

You could have anybody
But you’re happy on your own
No-one could ever change you
No-one could reach that zone

Some day I’ll find my way
Out of the grasp of your beautiful skin
I could’ve gave you all my days
But your love I just couldn’t win
Your love I just couldn’t win

Love ain’t ever gonna play those games with you
Oh, no, no
Love ain’t ever gonna play those games with you
Oh, no, no
Love ain’t ever gonna play those games with you
Oh, no, no
Love ain’t ever gonna play those games with you
