Track Name: Woman
She'll steal your heart, and lock it away
until you've played your part.
She is life and love itself,
I should've known it from the start.

I fell in love, and fall I did
into this blissful life.
My doubts all vanished and faded away,
and I made her my wife.

Woman.

She treats me good, she treats me well.
But sometimes she'll get crossed.
She is fire and brimstone,
but still she's my sweetheart.

Years have passed and the smile is gone,
we had a falling out.
My doubts all vanished and faded away,
time for me to leave this town.

Woman.
Track Name: Blijven Jullie
Wat als ik niet volhoud.
Wat als het teveel blijkt.
Als ik het gewoon negeer.
Als ik gewoon niet kijk.

Blijven jullie dan bij mij?
Blijven jullie dan bij mij?

Werk ik er wel genoeg aan.
Of houd ik jullie op.
Vind je dat het goed voelt.
Vind je dat het klopt.

En blijven jullie dan bij mij?
Blijven jullie dan bij mij?

Wed ik op een blind paard of ben ik dan te bang.
Hebben jullie me wel nodig, ben ik wel van belang.

Ben ik wel goed genoeg.
En kan ik dat ooit zijn.
Ik doe het niet bewust,
maar soms doe ik jullie pijn.

En blijven jullie zelfs dan bij mij?
Blijven jullie dan bij mij?
Track Name: Comforting Words
Don't cry, little baby.
Everything, will work out fine.
Don't sigh, my strongest lady.
I'll be yours, and you'll stay mine.

'Cause it may seem as though, there are hard times ahead.
Don't say or do, anything you'll regret.
Just focus on the good, instead.
And use all the love that you've had.

Step back, gorgeous lady.
Step back, and take a deep breath.
It won't leave, unless you maybe,
fight it off until it's dead.

When your fears, have culminated.
And there seems, no end in sight.
Battle that, that which you've hated.
Battle it, fight the fight.

'Cause it may seem as though, there are hard times ahead.
Don't say or do, anything you'll regret.
Just focus on the good, instead.
And use all the love that you've had.

So don't cry, little baby.
Everything, will work out fine.
Don't sigh, my strongest lady.
I'll be yours, and you'll stay mine.
Track Name: Again, Again
On my way down south I met a man.
I'll try to tell his story as good as I can.
He said: "Could I have some of your time?
I'll keep you out of jail for a couple o' dimes".

"I drove here in a car that don't belong to me.
I don't live by the rules as you can see.
I get a kick out of stealin' cars.
Half my life was spent behind bars.

A beautiful coupé I tried to steal.
An officer came and caught me behind the wheel.
Again, again.

Son there's an evil in my soul.
I only drive in cars that I stole.
I'm just no good, I'm a lousy thief.
I've been caught more times than you'd believe.

A beautiful sedan I tried to steal.
An officer came and caught me behind the wheel.
Again, again.

So I'll save you lots of money and lots of pain.
Wherever you want to travel, take the train.

A minivan I liked i tried to steal.
An officer came and caught me behind the wheel.
Again, again.
Track Name: Summer Came
Summer came
You broke my heart
When you went away
A false start

The cold settled in
It all turns to grey
I really mean it
That I want you to stay

'Cause I miss you so
And the ice only grows
It's not the same
I'm no more aflame
I'm no more aflame

And there have been others
But it all fell flat
I just can't be bothered
To put an effort in that

Spring's around the corner
But thaw hasn't come
I want to be stronger
At least appear to some

'Cause I miss you so
And the ice only grows
It's not the same
I'm no more aflame
I'm no more aflame
I'm no more aflame
