    Missionary Man
    Well I was born an original sinner.
    I was borne from original sin.
    And if I had a dollar bill
    For all the things I’ve done
    There’d be a mountain of money
    Piled up to my chin…My mother told me good
    My mother told me strong.
    She said “be true to yourself
    And you can’t go wrong.”
    “But there’s just one thing
    That you must understand.”
    “You can fool with your brother –
    But don’t mess with a missionary man.”

    Don’t mess with a missionary man.
    Don’t mess with a missionary man.

    Well the missionary man
    He’s got God on his side.
    He’s got the saints and apostles
    Backin’ up from behind.
    Black eyed looks from those Bible books.
    He’s a man with a mission
    Got a serious mind.
    There was a woman in the jungle
    And a monkey on a tree.
    The missionary man he was followin’ me.
    He said “stop what you’re doing.”
    “Get down upon your knees.”
    “I’ve got a message for you that you better believe.”

    Thorn In My Side

    You gave me such a bad time
    tried to hurt me, but now I know…

    Thorn in my side.
    You know that’s all you ever were.
    A bundle of lies.
    You know that’s all that it was worth…
    I should have known better
    But I trusted you at first.
    I should have known better
    But I got what I deserved…

    To run away from you
    Was all that I could do.
    To run away from you
    Was all that I could do.

    Thorn in my side.
    You know that’s all you’ll ever be.
    So don’t think you know better
    ‘Cause that’s what you mean to me…
    I was feeling complicated.
    I was feeling low.
    Now everytime I think of you
    I shiver to the bone…

    [Chorus repeats…]

    When Tomorrow Comes

    Underneath your dreamlit eyes
    Shades of sleep have driven you away.
    The moon is pale outside
    And you are far from here.
    Breathing shifts your careless head
    Untroubled by the chaos of our lives.
    Another day – another night
    Has taken you again my dear.
    And you know that I’m gonna be the one
    Who’ll be there
    When you need someone to depend upon
    When tomorrow comes…
    When tomorrow comes…

    Wait till tomorrow comes – yea yea…
    Wait till tomorrow comes – yea yea…

    Last night while you were
    Lying in my arms
    And I was wondering where you were
    You know you looked just like a baby
    Fast asleep in this dangerous world.
    Every star was shining brightly
    Just like a million years before.
    And we were feeling very small
    Underneath the universe.
    And you know that I’m gonna be the one
    Who’ll be there when you need
    Someone to depend upon
    When tomorrow comes…
    When tomorrow comes…

    The Last Time

    Well the first time that I saw you
    You were standing in the rain.
    You were waiting at the station
    For the last connecting train.
    Well – who will you go to
    When there’s no-one to betray?
    And I said – who will you go to
    When your best friend turns away?
    Hey hey…

    Last time you’re gonna let me down.
    Last time you’re gonna
    Fool around with me…

    There’s a garden full of roses,
    There’s a necklace full of pearls.
    You have come to take the roses
    To give to other girls.
    Well – I am just a pretty thing
    You wanted for a day.
    There is nothing left between us
    There is nothing left to say…
    Hey hey…

    People like you
    Can be so mean.
    People like you
    Just don’t come clean.

    [Chorus repeats…]

    The Miracle Of Love

    How many sorrows
    Do you try to hide
    In a world of illusion
    That’s covering your mind?
    I’ll show you something good
    Oh I’ll show you something good.
    When you open your mind
    You’ll discover the sign
    That there’s something
    You’re longing to find…

    The miracle of love
    Will take away your pain
    When the miracle of love
    Comes your way again.

    Cruel is the night
    That covers up your fears.
    Tender is the one
    That wipes away your tears.
    There must be a bitter breeze
    To make you sting so viciously –
    They say the greatest coward
    Can hurt the most ferociously.
    But I’ll show you something good.
    Oh I’ll show you something good.
    If you open your heart
    You can make a new start
    When your crumbling world falls apart.

    [Chorus repeats…]

    Let's Go!

    He was the kinda guy
    I liked the way he looked.
    He had a red silk tie –
    He had a forties suit.
    And I said – “You’re the kind of person
    I’ve been longing to adore.”
    “You’re the kind of person
    I’ve been waiting for.”
    He said – “The time is right to take a chance
    ‘Cause I’m looking for a brand new romance.”
    “So come on baby let’s go outside –
    I’ve got a car in the drive and we can take a ride.”

    “So let’s go – I wanna fall in love ooh hoo.”
    “Let’s go – I wanna fall in love ooh hoo.”

    Well – we went driving for an hour or so
    Till we took the little Chevy down to Mexico.
    And I said – “Blue eyed boy, you know I love the way you look.”
    “Why don’t we find a preacher
    Who can get us hooked?”
    “You know the time is right to take a chance
    ‘Cause I’m looking for a brand new romance.”
    And the great big moon
    Was a shinin’ down
    He said “Forget about the preacher man,
    Let’s do it on the ground!”

    “Let’s go – I wanna fall in love ooh hoo.”
    “Let’s go – I wanna fall in love ooh hoo.”

    Take Your Pain Away

    If I could find a way
    To soothe your troubled mind
    Then I would erase your fears
    And help you to unwind.
    I would ease the burden
    That you carry everyday.
    Oh – don’t you know I’d find a cure
    And take your pain away.

    Take your pain away
    Take your pain away…

    And even though you’re far from here
    Don’t forget I’m always near.
    Find comfort in these words I send
    In this cold world.

    Take your pain away
    Take your pain away…

    For every aching heart
    For every broken soul…

    So give up your worries
    They’ll only do you harm.
    There is no need to be concerned
    It’s just a false alarm.

    [Chorus repeats…]

    A Little Of You

    There used to be a time
    I wore my heart upon my sleeve.
    There used to be a time
    I’d show my gentle side to anyone
    Through these years of wandering
    I know I’ve been deceived.
    Through these years of wandering…

    And everytime you try to hurt me
    You know you’ll only hurt yourself.
    And everytime you try to hurt me
    I know you’ll be the one to suffer
    When you think you’re hurting someone.

    A little of you – a little of me –
    A little of you –
    Is hurting someone –

    Don’t tell me I’m the only one
    ‘Cause I don’t need that space.
    Don’t ask for love
    I’ll throw it back in your face.
    All of these promises
    Were only made to break.
    All of these promises…

    [Chorus repeats…]

    In This Town

    I could be anywhere else but here
    But the rain won’t let me go.
    There’s a photograph
    Hanging on my wall
    Of a place I’ve never been to…
    I’ll never make the grade
    (Feels like Sunday everyday)
    And I can’t stop the rain
    (Feels like Sunday everyday)
    What do the papers say?
    (Feels like Sunday everyday)
    Get up and go now!

    In this town – something’s gotta change.
    In this town – something’s gotta change.

    I’m looking at the world –
    Looking for a scene –
    Waiting for a day –
    Filling in time like I’m digging
    My own grave…
    I’ll never make the grade
    (Feels like Sunday everyday)
    And I can’t stop the rain
    (Feels like Sunday everyday)
    What do the papers say?
    (Feels like Sunday everyday)
    Get up and go now!

    [Chorus repeats…]

    I Remember You

    Well there’s a colour picture
    In my mind.
    Of all the places
    That I’ve left behind.
    The broken windows
    Where the wind blows through
    Empty shells of houses
    That have turned to ruin.

    Oh – we were so young.
    We didn’t realise
    Just what we’d done.
    Oh – we were too young.

    And I remember you.
    You were the back yard boy.
    Hiding in the wreckage
    Of broken dreams.
    Standing by the railway line.
    Standing.

    Oh – we were so young.
    We didn’t realise
    Just what we’d done.
    Oh – we were too young.

    And all the sweetness
    Has been taken out of this place.
    So many memories
    Are knocked down or replaced.
    And I can’t stand to see
    The shifting time
    Taking me further –
    Leaving you behind.

    [Chorus repeats…]
