Track Name: The Cowboys Ain't Dyin'
Sometimes some people think you're crazy
Don't get mad about it
I don't have a fuckin' single penny in my pocket
The old Jack Daniels’ bottle looks so empty

Woke up every midnight to talk to wind that came by
Down from this goddamn capital city
I heard the words that I never ever thought I would hear
They said just pull your trigger to make it a deal

“Through the bullet hole comes the party show”
I've been tryin' to make the point that I never let go

“Through the bullet hole comes the party show”
I've been tryin' to make the point that I never let go


[chorus]
And the cowboys ain't dyin' yet
The last halter in my hands' my feelin'
I'm still here to get down to the slayin'
Yet no one is gonna lay me down
And the cowboys ain't dyin' yet
The faith is gonna be my every last shot
And the cowboys ain't dyin' yet
Baby 'cause I never quit
[/chorus]

I ain't no super star
Ain't nobody knows me
But girl you can call my nickname for free
A fleshless heart is killing your dream
There ain't no story like “it's so easy”

Every time I’m drinkin', I’m so intoxicated
But I just won’t let go of my broken six strings
Man on the train is callin' my name
My fear for agin' is burning my blood again

“Through the bullet hole comes the party show”
I've been tryin' to make the point that I never let go

“Through the bullet hole comes the party show”
I've been tryin' to make the point that I never let go


[chorus]
And the cowboys ain't dyin' yet
The last halter in my hands' my feelin'
I'm still here to get down to the slayin'
Yet no one is gonna lay me down
And the cowboys ain't dyin' yet
The faith is gonna be my every last shot
And the cowboys ain't dyin' yet
Baby 'cause I never quit
[/chorus]
Track Name: The Other Me
We don’t always play the role we meant to be
But there's always the other me
Which's deep inside my body
It's deep inside my body
The other me

You think I smoked since I was seven years old
You think I drink all day to ride on the road
You think I've had sex with thousands of girls
You think they're what there should be in the world of rock n' roll

It’s hard to believe that before you can see
I'm not the kind of guy you could ever imagine
You never know 'how crazy you can ever be
And what you gotta do now is lookin' at me

[Chorus]
As you can see,this other me
I'm on the stage, this other me
What you can hear, this other me
Where you can't believe, there's another me
[Chorus]

You think you're too gentle to be like a beast
You think the you in the suite is what you gotta be
You see the lights tonight they're just a cure for your disease
Tell you somethin' another you is deep inside your body

I am nobody in the city's daylight
And the superman on every Saturday night
You're just a joker in daily life
So do you have to be a coward on this crazy night

[Chorus]


You don’t have to get tattoos all over your body
You don’t have to cut your into pieces
You don’t have to take drugs to feel the beats
Rock n' roll is much simpler than you used to think

You can be a gear whose collar is white
You also can be a father or a pretty housewife
You can call yourself Jesus if you like
But the other you is rock n' roll fellow tonight

[Chorus]
Track Name: I do All These to Please Myself
There's so much tough time
Through your whole life
There ain't no Bible
To stop the cryin'

A strong heart is the only thing
To make you survive
Nothing’s to be sacrificed
If it gave ya a goddamn smile

[Chorus]
I do all these things just to please myself
My ignored hobbies won't bleed like hell
If ya love it or not is just the last thing in hell
I'll give a fuck about
[Chorus]

They want me to give up
I can tell you why
But I'm happy I'm here
Holdin' on to the fire

No many really care
'Cause they dont tell the good from the bad
Just do what I gotta do
Choose what I gotta choose

You cry when you wanna
It don't make you not be a man

But you fight when you don't have a choice
Ain't no shame, neither

[Chorus]
Track Name: Part Time Love
You want me to walk you like a pampered little dog
You want me to kiss you with a seven hundred pound weight hug
You want me to watch you like your fifty-years-old pup
You want me to play your game like somebody un-grown-up

I'm makin’ your breakfast
I'm sendin’ you roses
I'm not lyin’ like "you are my everything"
I'm not spendin’ every second on you
'Cause I'm doin' my stuff

[Chorus]
Hey, baby
Just take a little break
Why don't ya just try to have a little fun all by yourself

Hey, baby
Just turn your face around
And stop bitching now
Listen, you're my biggest love but the part time love
[Chorus]


From 9 to 5 it's time to make money to pay the rent
From 5 till the night it's time to say honey once again
I got my buddies to hang out with and a lotta bottles to drink
I got my own shitty life to live and a lotta dreams to dream

I'm makin’ your breakfast
I'm sendin’ you roses
I'm not lyin’ like you are my everything
I'm not spendin’ every second on you
'Cause now I'm doin' my stuff

[Chorus]
Track Name: From The 80's
Some twenty years ago
I landed on this big bad world
In the first place I didn't know
It was the age of rock n' roll

I am now twenty-four
Not a child anymore
Not about to change the world
Just wander how to ch-ch-cheer you folks
c'mon

[Chorus]
We are the noise we are the sound and voice (from the 80’s)
We are no toys we are the girls and boys (from the 80’s)
we have no choice but we have fun and joy from the 80’s
C'mon We're from the 80’s bady
[Chorus]


The good old days are somewhere behind the clock
Yeah, the wheels of time are never gonna stop
The memories ain't crashing down
Just take a look around baby
Recall every piece of shit that ever made you proud

Put your jeans n' leathers on
Get everything locked n' loaded
Turn every knob on you up to four o'clock
It's the very moment to shout it out loud c'mon

[Chorus]
