Track Name: The Graveyard Shift
Working every day
Trying to be stronger
But this life it ain't for me
I can't take it any longer
I don't know if I'll get what I want
but I'll give it all my sweat
and I'll give it all my blood

Whoa, I ain't gonna die
Whoa, not tonight on the graveyard
the graveyard shift.

Sometimes I drive
early in the morning
and I wonder if this life
tries to give me warnings
but I'm passing by the signs
through the red lights
I can't let down a dream
I gotta stay and fight

Whoa, I ain't gonna die
Whoa, not tonight on the graveyard
the graveyard shift.

And if tonight
is the last night of my life
I'm gonna laugh and scream
cause I never lived it right
you can't kill me
and I'll shove it in your face
if you're standing still
you better get out of my way

Whoa, I ain't gonna die
Whoa, not tonight on the graveyard
the graveyard shift.
Track Name: Some Kind of Miracle
I have high hopes even when I lose
I always have these poor boy blues
and dreams I keep waiting on.
It could be you and me
our names upon these golden streets
I know we could have it all
and you know I'm gonna catch you if you fall.

All along we've been singing the same song
and breaking all the rules
so let's stand tall, live like kids above the law
and wait for some kind of miracle.

It all begins from tragedy
so far love has been bad to me
but you could be the one to change my tune
I think I've seen a thing or two
but I've never seen someone like you
so baby meet me 'neath the moon
I'm gonna be the man for you.


All along we've been singing the same song
and breaking all the rules
so let's stand tall, live like kids above the law
and wait for some kind of miracle.

We will be like thieves in the night
when we run through the city
and pass through traffic lights
and the radio will play
a song about your eyes
I know it's gonna be all right

Is he gone, gone from you
might be a gamble I ain't no fool
you're the one I'm looking for
So let's take 'em down one by one
stay out late and have our fun
I know we can win this war
and I know you're worth fighting for.


All along we've been singing the same song
and breaking all the rules
so let's stand tall, live like kids above the law
and wait for some kind of miracle.
Track Name: Stand My Ground
My love, my love can you hear me
I'm singing out tonight
I'm waiting on this corner
by neon bar lights

My dear, my dear do you fear me
is love so bad to hold
Cause I need someone to get me through
someone to help me grow old

Don't you know I ain't running
no I'll never let you down
don't you know I ain't running
Yeah for you I'll stand my ground.

The dark, the dark it grows quiet
the room is empty now
we're ghosts along these highways
we'll meet again somehow

Don't you know I ain't running
no I'll never let you down
don't you know I ain't running
Yeah for you I'll stand my ground.
Track Name: Last Laugh
Well I gave you my heart, I gave you my soul
and tried to be a man
made every promise to you
and hoped you'd understand
I thought of old love stories they show on silver screens
but you never saw those films
you just do as you please

Well I tossed every twig, I tossed every stone
right at your lit window
tried to be real wild
just like I was Marlon Brando
but you never cared for those times
never dreamt about those days
you always wanted what was here
never wanted to leave this place

So I'll leave you behind, pay you no mind
bury these memories
those old dark times when I wrote those lines
are far behind me
so don't look for me darling
don't even ask around
Cause I won't give you my time
I've got the last laugh now

Well I thought I was brave, I thought I was smart
I thought I knew it all
at night I'd wait by the phone
just waiting for your call
but you never called me darling
didn't care if I was dead
didn't care if I spent most of my nights
on the edge of my bed


So I'll leave you behind, pay you no mind
bury these memories
those old dark times when I wrote those lines
are far behind me
so don't look for me darling
don't even ask around
Cause I won't give you my time
I've got the last laugh now

All those memories
Well I left them fast
I can't remember your name
You're just a part of the past


Leave you behind, pay you no mind
bury these memories
those old dark times when I wrote those lines
are far behind me
so don't look for me darling
don't even ask around
Cause I won't give you my time
I've got the last laugh now
