lyrics "shake your faith"

1.Too Good to be True


 

I tried to be your kind of man, I was putty in your hands

But it was more than I could stand

Oh Rena, it was more than I could stand.

I'm not one for playing games, but I played them just the same

If it meant I played with you

Oh Rena, there's not much I wouldn't do

 

I've know others like you, they've all been too good to be true

Oh, Rena you were too good to be true

 

I fell under like a fool, when you cast your wicked spell

What else could I do

Oh, Rena love's a dog from hell

 

I've known others like you, they've all been too good to be true

Oh Rena, you were too good to be true

 

So I'll see you down the road, or maybe not at all

You're just too hard on the soul

Oh Rena, I heard the highway call.

 


2.Early Warning


Looked out this morning the sky was blood red

I remember what the gypsy lady said

Dark days and hard times coming

Did you hear that early warning?

Walking round in the smoke and cinders

Don't it kinda make you wonder?

I remember what the gypsy lady said

Dark days and hard times coming

Did you hear that early warning?

Did you hear that early warning?


3.Yellow Belly


I pick up telephone, put it down and walk away

There was something I was meaning to tell you

Guess it can wait for another day

I try to follow my hearts desire

But I chicken out when it comes down to the wire

Yellow belly scared to death

If you're waiting for me babe, don't hold your breath.

I'd find the nerve to make that call

Tell you how I really feel

I'd get down on my knees and crawl

If I had any guts at all.

 

I'm the kind to speak my mind

But lately my tongue's been tied

I get up to your garden gate

Then I hesitate

 

I try to follow my hearts desire

But I chicken out when it comes down to the wire

Yellow belly scared to death

If you're waiting for me babe, don't hold your breath

I'd find the nerve to make that call

Tell you how I really feel

Get down on my knees and crawl

If I had any guts at all.


 

4.Cold as they come


It was rough from the start

With a mother so sad

A house full of ghosts

And a deadbeat dad

It's a crying shame

What it does to someone

You can't feel a thing

When you're cold as they come.

Sad bacon and eggs, in a seedy cafe

She's pouring the coffee, while time slips away

 

With a heart that was froze

Such a long time ago

She got the kids

He got her soul

Now she's cold as they come

She's hard to the core

She's had to fight in her own little war

Yea she's cold, cold as they come

 

Sad bacon and eggs, in a seedy cafe

She's pouring the coffe, time slips away

 

I looked her in the eye

As I ordered some pie

She almost cracked a smile

But she was cold, cold as they come.


 

5.Shake Your Faith 


 

I've been a witness to the miracle

I've been a witness to the crime

I'm not here to shake your faith

I'm just here to testify

 

You might believe in Adam and Eve

Or that we crawled out of the slime

I'm not here to shake your faith

I'm just here to testify

 

What's been done in the name of God

Is hard to justify

I'm not here to shake your faith

I'm just here to testify.


 

6. In the middle of the night


Well I get along just fine

Do just as I please

No one to answer to

It's what they call being free

 

chorus

You're what I been missing, you're what i've been missing

In the middle of the night

 

I've been known to be a little cynical

But I've got this good feeling about you

And I hope this good feeing

Got you feeling good too

 

repeat chorus


 

7.Quirky


 

She warms up the winter night

With one little smile

Lips like raspberries

She's got her own quirky style

There was something familiar

I knew right from the start

Maybe in another lifetime

We might have ignited a spark

 

What set of strange circumstances

Has led us down this road?

If we were travelling companions

It would lighten the load

 

She warms up the winter night

With one little smile

Lips like raspberries

She's got her own quirky style.


 

 

 

 

 

 

face it
shake your faith
