Last Man On Earth
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

Ain’t that nothin’
Think you’re doing something
Seen it before
Your kind at my door
Twisting things I say
But your evil ways
Can do me no harm


Chorus:

I won’t change my mind
And I won’t drink your wine
Won’t share your bed
If you were the last man on earth
I can’t look at you
Love nothing about you
I won’t change my mind
If you were the last man on earth

 

I seen you coming
But I wasn’t running
You got out of hand
Thought you were my man
I wasn’t amused
Not dazed and confused
Ain’t never had what I needed


Chorus:

I won’t change my mind
And I won’t drink your wine
Won’t share your bed
If you were the last man on earth
I can’t look at you
Love nothing about you
I won’t change my mind
If you were the last man on earth


Bridge:

I hear your voice and it drives me insane
Your name comes up I get enraged
I would never ever be so desperate to do
Anything that involves you


Chorus:

I won’t change my mind
And I won’t drink your wine
Won’t share your bed
If you were the last man on earth
I can’t look at you
Love nothing about you
I won’t change my mind
If you were the last man on earth

LOVE & LIGHT
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

VERSE 1:
SHADOWS COME AND GO
BLUE SKIES TURN TO GREY
BUT I WON’T LET THAT STAND IN MY WAY
YESTERDAY’S BAD NEWS
DON’T LET IT GET TO YOU
SUNSHINE’S NEVER FAR AWAY

CHORUS:
THE LOVE, THE LIGHT
THAT SHINES WITHIN YOUR HEART
LIVES INSIDE OF YOU
AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN YOUR HANDS

THE LOVE, THE LIGHT
THAT’S BURNING BRIGHT IN YOU
LET IT SHINE ON THROUGH
AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN YOUR HANDS

VERSE 2:
PERSEVERE AND SMILE
ALL GOOD THINGS IN TIME
KEEP YOUR FAITH AND KEEP YOUR HEAD HELD HIGH
OBSTACLES APPEAR
ROAD MAP SEEMS UNCLEAR
NEVERMIND YOU’LL ALWAYS BE ALRIGHT

DON’T THINK FOR A MINUTE OR A SECOND
THAT YOU CANNOT ACHIEVE
HONEY YOU JUST GOTTA BELIEVE
ALL THE GOOD THAT YOU DO
WILL ALL COME BACK TO YOU
MAKING YOUR DREAMS, COME TRUE

CHORUS:
THE LOVE, THE LIGHT
THAT SHINES WITHIN YOUR HEART
LIVES INSIDE OF YOU
AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN YOUR HANDS

THE LOVE, THE LIGHT
THAT’S BURNING BRIGHT IN YOU
LET IT SHINE ON THROUGH
AND THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN YOUR HANDS

No Visible Scars
(P.Legat/P.Legat, K.Smith)

Verse 1:
It hit me like a hammer, came out of the blue
What the hell did you think you’d do
So unexpected I wasn’t prepared
So many great times moments we shared

Chorus:
We had it good, we had it bad
But now with you gone I’m no longer sad
After all that happened I look to the stars
And all I can say is you left no visible scars

Verse 2:
It must’ve been so good cause you left me so fast
I don’t even care now I hope it will last
I feel rejected but I’ll be all right
A memory so sweet for the rest of my life

Chorus:
We had it good we had it bad
But now with you gone I’m no longer sad
After all that happened I look to the stars
And all I can say is you left no visible scars

Bridge:
None that anyone could see
I gave you all inside me
What we had was a lie
All the promise, but now we must say goodbye

Chorus:
We had it good we had it bad
But now with you gone I’m no longer sad
After all that happened I look to the stars
And all I can say is you left no visible scars

Supa Dupa
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

Chorus:
I can’t see you baby walking down the street holding anybody but me
That’s not alright with me
If I see you baby, walking down the street holding anybody but me
That’s not alright with me

Verse I:
You say you want my love
And I want to give it to you
But trust is a factor
You’re never where you say you’re gonna be

You’re hanging out all night
With so and so you know it just ain’t right
You’re taking me for a fool
Baby you know it just ain’t cool

Oh I pick up the phone to call you at home
A busy tone greets me
You say you’re working late
Not to worry, my heart is safe with you

Chorus:
I can’t see you baby walking down the street holding anybody but me
That’s not alright with me
If I see you baby, walking down the street holding anybody but me
That’s not alright with me

Verse II:
And on and on it goes
Your love comes in ways
I’m not accustomed to
I’m begging for something should come natural to you

I need security
You’re taking advantage of me
Of my love, my time, my dime
Baby you know it just ain’t right

Oh I pick up the phone to call you at home
A busy tone greets me
You say you’re working late
Not to worry, my heart is safe with you

Chorus:
I can’t see you baby walking down the street holding anybody but me
That’s not alright with me
If I see you baby, walking down the street holding anybody but me
That’s not alright with me

Love Thang
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

What is it bout you and me
We can’t keep our hands off each other
What is it bout you and me
Something it just takes on over
And we keep calling it quits
Say that’s it we just don’t fit
Next thing you know we’re on the phone
This love thing is too strong

Chorus:
Woooo, What’s this love thang
Woooo, What’s this thing called love
Woooo, What’s this love thang
Woooohooooooooooooooooooo!

Verse II:
What is it bout you and me
Can’t get you off my mind
What is it bout you and me
I gotta have you by my side
And we’re fighting once again
Say that’s it, that’s the end
Then you know just what to say
We’re making love by the end of the day

Chorus:
Woooo, What’s this love thang
Woooo, What’s this thing called love
Woooo, What’s this love thang
Woooohooooooooooooooooooo!

Bridge:
What is it, thing called love
What is it, what’s this thing called love
What is it, thing called love
What is it, what’s this thing called love


Verse III:
What is it bout you and me
Compares to no other
What is it bout you and me
One kiss can last forever
No matter how mad you might make me
Something about you makes me crazy
Unbelievable we ain’t going nowhere
For the rest of our lives, we’ll be right here

Chorus:
Woooo, What’s this love thang
Woooo, What’s this thing called love
Woooo, What’s this love thang
Woooohooooooooooooooooooo!

I Wanna Get Off
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

Verse I:
Got tired, of hearing you say
This ain’t the way you wanna live, no baby
And your constant, constant complaints
Bout what I ain’t and what you wish, I’d be

There’s so much that I could say
Point my finger in your face
Talk about things you did I didn’t like
Talk about what you did last night

Chorus:
I wanna get off
Stop this crazy ride
This trip, this madness I feel inside
I wanna be free, just let me be

Verse II:
How long now
How much time you need
I’m at the end of my rope
There’s no other possibility
And it hurts like hell
But if you were me
You would not have lasted this long
You’d be long gone

All of it so fresh now in my mind
Love sometimes yeah can make you blind
You were never really what I needed
But I just couldn’t see it

Chorus:
I wanna get off
Stop this crazy ride
This trip, this madness I feel inside
I wanna be free, just let me be

Bridge:
Why did we fall apart
When we know love doesn’t work on it’s own
If you care like you say you do
You would’ve done all you could
To see it through, oh love

Chorus:
I wanna get off
Stop this crazy ride
This trip, this madness I feel inside
I wanna be free, just let me be

Get By
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

Verse I:
I know you’re looking for that something you can connect to
To ease your mind from troubled times
And not a temporary healer but something everlasting
You must know it’s in your soul

Chorus:
They’ll be shelter salvation
Comfort and protection from the storm
To help you along
Use your wisdom, guidance, third eye that lies deep inside
To help you get by
You’ll get by, you’ll get by

Verse II:
And it’s easy to look for the easy way
And it’s so easy to look for somebody else to blame
Keep in mind a quick fix only buys you a little time
Reach higher and higher the limit is the sky

Chorus:
They’ll be shelter salvation
Comfort and protection from the storm
To help you along
Use your wisdom, guidance, third eye that lies deep inside
To help you get by
You’ll get by, you’ll get by

Bridge:
Don’t hesitate to make a change
Keep looking ahead if the path seems strange
Don’t waste anytime to whine and complain
Just remember what I say

Chorus:
They’ll be shelter salvation
Comfort and protection from the storm
To help you along
Use your wisdom, guidance, third eye that lies deep inside
To help you get by
You’ll get by, you’ll get by

Verse 1:
I really do believe in miracles
Especially when it comes to you baby
Alright baby

Ain’t no telling just how far this thing could go
Or how long it might last baby

And you hold the key

And you got me so
Nobody love’s me better

Been a really long long time

No easy way to explain
You’re contagious

My hearts open
And you hold the key

And you know you know
And you got me so
Nobody love’s me better than you

And you got me so
Nobody love’s me better than you

Right All The Time
(P.Legat/K.Smith)

Verse I:
Mama always gave me the best advice
She said don’t go down without a fight
Taught me to stand up for what I believed in
Don’t settle for second best
Don’t be an underachiever
Don’t let em push you around or put you down

Chorus:
You can’t believe in everything that you’re told
Don’t buy into everything that you’re sold
Trust in your own instincts
In your own gut feeling
You’ll find you’ll be right all of the time

Verse II:
And if you thought as you got older
It would be easier making strides to get by
Smiling face cause confusion
Beware of razor blades have a way of slippin’ in
Cut you raw if you let it
Remember your mama’s words as she said it

Chorus:
You can’t believe in everything that you’re told
Don’t buy into everything that you’re sold
Trust in your own instincts
In your own gut feeling
You’ll find you’ll be right all of the time

Guitar Solo:

Chorus:
You can’t believe in everything that you’re told
Don’t buy into everything that you’re sold
Trust in your own instincts
In your own gut feeling
You’ll find you’ll be right all of the time

People These Days
(P.Legat, A.Janoska jun./K.Smith)

Verse I:
What’s this I heard I’ve been told you weren’t real with me
And if I’d known I would’ve gone, I would have set you free
Don’t need you sticking around me
I don’t need your pity
Don’t need false compliments
As you can see, I’m self sufficient
No need to be worried

Chorus:
What’s the matter with people these days
Never really meaning what they say
All this double talk, crazy talk getting in the way
What’s the matter with people these days
Can’t believe a word they say
All this smiling and profiling
Won’t be lead astray

Verse II:
And if I knew you weren’t worthy of my companionship
I’d draw the line I wouldn’t waste time
Wouldn’t let you treat me unkind
Don’t need you sticking around me
I don’t need your pity
Don’t need false compliments
As you can see, I’m self sufficient
No need to be worried

Chorus:
What’s the matter with people these days
Never really meaning what they say
All this double talk, crazy talk getting in the way
What’s the matter with people these days
Can’t believe a word they say
All this smiling and profiling
Won’t be lead astray
