Track Name: Smitten
Well I have to stop and wonder why I had to wait so long
To find that certain feeling that I thought was so far gone
It was a simple twist of fate that brought my path to you
Now I find myself thinking that I haven't go a clue

I'm just smitten about Sue
I hope she's smitten too. (2X)

From the moment that we met at that smoky little bar
And we had our conversations and I walked you to your car
As I drove away that night I felt that special glow
And I knew the time was right to let my feelings show


So know I've found a girl that I could truly love
But I'm going to need some help from that big guy up above
Cause my feelings seem to get a little stronger every day
And my life is so much better now that I have found her way


My confidence has risen as well as my esteem
But I keep on thinking that I will awaken from this dream
Now have this feeling that is tugging at my heart
And if I get my way we shall never be apart

Track Name: Rough Around the Edges
I was rough around the edges I was feeling kinda blue
I had no one to talk with there was no one that I knew
The time was going slowly though the day had just begun
I looked outside my window to see the setting sun

Drinking always seems to ease the pain (X3)
La la la

We were sitting on the porch as the sun came shining in
She was drinking black rum and I was drinking gin
We were talking about the old days when we were kinda young Knowing that when we woke up we'd both be kinda hung

La la la

She was headed for the airport and I was headed home
I knew this was another night I would have to drink alone

La La la

We'd be rough around the edges and feeling kinda blue
Time to face another day with nothing better to do
Our time on earth is way to short for this pain we must endure
Feeling rough around the edges makes me feel secure

Chorus (X4) end
Track Name: Footprint
I looked up and you were at my doorstep
We drank some wine and had ourselves some laughs
At the end of the evening when you kissed me
I knew right then that you were in my heart

Now I'm just another footprint in your trail of broken hearts
Just another rainbow without the pot of gold
That's my Life (X3)

In a short time I grew to love you
And I told exactly how I felt
We spent the days with each other
Sharing laughter, feelings moments and ourselves


In time you began to doubt me
Maybe it was some guilt from your past
You said it was way to soon to love you
And you said it while you were taking off your dress

Chorus and end...
Track Name: Newport Bar
Let's go down to the Newport Bar it's not too far from here
Head on down to the Newport Bar I'll buy you guys a beer
Let's go down to the Newport Bar and get ourselves a drink
Head on down to the Newport bar hey what do you think

Cause we're always welcome at the Newport Bar
The girls are pretty at the Newport Bar
We're always witty at the Newport Bar
Frank will buy you a drink (2X)

Let's go down to the Newport bar with the portrait on the wall
Head on down to the Newport bar better give DJ a call
Maybe we will see Jimmi Schutte there and his girlfriend Nan
And if we are really lucky our bartender will be Fran


Let's gown down to the Newport bar it's a friendly little place
I'll meet you down at the Newport bar they'd love to see your face
Let's go down to the Newport bar for hotdogs and some chips
We can play for the shake of the day and have ourselves a nip


So head on down to the Newport Bar on any given night
Show up down at the Newport Bar & Frank will treat you right
Head on down to the Newport Bar on the south side of Bayview
Go on down to the Newport Bar there is nothing better to do


Frank will buy you a drink (3) end
Track Name: I Could Love You Forever
You are the Sun and I am the Moon
I feel your presence in every room
You are the wind and I am the rain
When I am with you I feel no pain

I could love you forever
Hold you in my arms
I could love you forever
Showing you all my charms

You are the Stars and I am the Sky
When I am with you I am always high
You are the birds and I am the bee's
When I am with you I am always free


You are the night and I am the day
When I am with you I want to play
You are the notes and I am the song
When I am with you my heart is strong

Chorus - Followed by Lead
Track Name: Angst
I told you once and I told you twice
You had better listen to my advice
Come home at five and you’re out on your ass

I'll lock the door's, I'll take your keys
I'll pack your bags and I won't say please
We're headed right straight to court

I'll serve you a subpoena, I'll take very dime
I'll break your lamps and take what's mine
What ever happened to man and wife

No No never again
You had better listen to me my friend
You'd be crazy to walk down that aisle

All that's left is pain and strife
I'll hate you for the rest of your life
You get the mine and baby I get the shaft

You can have the money, you can have the car
I just want the kids and my guitar
Honey you’re out there on your own

A house for you and a house for me
Will bring us both tranquility
You can take my pension and it's a crime


I'll tell you what we can make amends
If anything else we can still be friend
We both know it could be much worse
