Track Name: Sell my soul
Sell My Soul (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

I'd sell my soul, but it's way too late
I'd sell my soul, but I could not wait
I'd sell my soul but I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for a nine-to-five
to pay the rent
to stay alive
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for your blue, blue eyes
I sold my soul, you know I cannot lie
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for your long, long legs
I sold my soul to put you in my bed
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for some peace and quiet
- a shame to admit, but I cannot deny
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for the men in suits
I sold my soul so I could lick their boots
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago
I sold my soul - I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for a mobile phone
I try to get through but there's nobody home
I sold my soul. I sold it long ago

I sold my soul for an acoustic guitar
Twenty-five years and I ain't know star
I sold my soul. I sold it long ago
I sold my soul. I sold it long ago
I sold my soul. I sold it long ago
Track Name: Something's got to give
Something's Gotta Give - Justin Lavash

I've been holding forth coz I can't hold back
I've been trying my girl to the railroad tracks
I want to turn it loose
I want to turn it round
I wanna tear, wanna tear your playhouse down
So, forgive me if I seem a little sensitive
but some day, somehow some place
Something's going to give

I've been working like a dog for some company man
I've been getting my fill of the five-year plan
He says, "close your eyes, compromise, play your cards right
and we'll put you into management".
So, forgive me if I seem a little negative
but some day, some place some one
Something's going to give

I've been losing it, schmoozing it, cruisin' it, man
I've been picking a fight - I've been losing it
I've been making it, faking it, hating it, man
I've been taking a vow - I've been breaking it
So, excuse me if I seem a little negative
but some day, somewhere, some place, some time
Something's gonna give
Track Name: You should see my truelove ride
You should see my true love ride - Lavash

In the morning's frosty light
You should see my true love ride
Out across the countryside
You should see my true love ride

In the evening's cold moonlight
You should se my true love ride
By a winter fireside
You should see my true love ride

From up on high to down below
You should see my girl come-go
By a winter fireside
You should see my true love ride

There are those who call her name
But she's one girl who can't be tamed
Out across the countryside
You should see my true love ride

Out across the countryside
You should see my true love ride
Track Name: Blow out the candle
Blow out the candle (Words/music - Justin Lavash)


Blow out the candle and a sailor dies
Turn your head my darling as the gentlemen go by
Hang up the horseshoe, upside down
Better cross your heart before you drive into town

Odds and evens, put a flower on the grave
Pay off the priest so a soul can be saved
One for sorrow, two for joy
The sailor went to sea and now he's looking for the buoy

Cover up the clock, roll the blinds right down
Keep the music playing till the ship goes down
Save up your pennies for the dead man's eyes
Cross my palm with silver and I'll tell no lies

Me and you sitting on a tree
K-I-S-S-I-N-G

One step, two step, three step, four
I saw a blind man knocking at the door
Turn around, touch the ground, ee-i-o
Button up your coat, it's a long way home
Track Name: Harder and Harder (2015 remix)
Harder and Harder (Words and Music - Justin Lavash)


It's getting harder
- harder and harder

It's getting harder
- harder and harder

Everybody wants a piece of the pie
Everybody wants to take that ride
Everybody's got a game to play
But that game ain't going anywhere

Can you feel it getting hard again?
Can you feel it going round that bend?
Can you feel it getting hard, my friend?

It's getting harder
- harder and harder

It's getting harder
- harder and harder

Just when we thought we'd won our liberty
some fundamentalist Christian starts putting on the squeeze
Just when we thought we'd got rid of the man
the same old shit hits the same old fan

Can you feel it getting hard again?
Can you feel it going round that bend?
Can you feel it getting hard, my friend?
Well, here comes the priest with the hard amen.

It's getting harder
- harder and harder

It's getting harder
- harder and harder
Track Name: Je t'ai eue
Je t'ai eue (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

Je t'ai eue, Je t'ai eue
Je t'ai eue comme ca
Je t'ai eue mon amour, tant pis pour toi

Dans la rue, dans la rue
Dans la rue a midi
Je t'ai vue avec Jean, Je t'ai vue avec Guy
Je t'ai crue, Je t'ai crue
Je t'ai crue a moi
Mais Je t'ai eue ,Je t'ai eue
tant pis pour toi

Et la lune, Et la lune
Ne te cachera pas
Mois, je suis le loup et le loup et comme ca

Et je t'ai eu, je t'ai eu
je t'ai eu si tu crois
Que je suis "authentique"
Parce que je ne suis pas
Je suis le perfide Albion
Et je t'ai eu, je t'ai eu avec cette chanson
Track Name: Strange Blues
Strange Blues (Music/Lyrics: Justin Lavash)

I can see the light when I close my eyes
and I tell myself it's going to be alright
but now there's nothing to which I would subscribe
try to see his face but God's not online
and I've got the strange blues tonight

There's a girl on train trembling in pain
I could have reached out my hand
but what is there to say?
You were pushed out at birth
you'll be pushed all the way.
You could try and bring it up with God
but God's not at his desk today
He's got the strange blues they say

There's a line in the sand
I guess we crossed it, man
I know you'd sell all my secrets
so you can entertain the clan
I'm just leaning on a friend.
I'm not looking for a fan
and I know I drive you crazy
but I know you understand.
It's just those strange blues
those strange blues
again
Track Name: The shape of someone
THE SHAPE OF SOMEONE - Justin Lavash

It breaks my heart when you skip town
Will we ever work it out?
There's miles and miles of road between us
We fall in and out of touch
but really we don't say so much
We rearrange the broken pieces

And I feel you move away
I feel the isolation
We're missing the shape of someone
the shape of someone

And I still feel it too
I still feel it and I miss you

Doubled-up, double-down
As it goes it comes around
When you've got a bleeding belly full of fire
It's just increments of bad and worse
Every step seems to hurt
Thought the whole thing might just expire

And I feel you moving on
Can I come with you, coz my work here is done
We both share the shape of someone
the shape of someone

And I still feel it too
I still feel it and I miss you

And I still feel it too
Coming on, coming on, coming on through
The space between me and you
I still feel it
I still feel it and

I love you
Track Name: She's a keeper
She's a keeper (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

She's a keeper
She's a stealer
Gonna give her all the love I have
She's a sweetheart
- a real heartbeater
makes me want to be a better man

And yes it's true that I have made her cry
I don't know why
I can't deny
Coz she's my baby
and she's a keeper
gonna be a better man

I been around
some would say I've been a sinner
but I never really gave a damn
I don't believe in
losers and winners
You just gotta do the best you can

And yes it's true that she could make me cry
Coz I can't abide to see her bad
Coz she's my baby
She's a keeper
I'm gonna be a better man
Track Name: Dirty Money
Dirty Money - (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

You can keep your dirty money
I don't need your dirty money
Where's your dirty money been?
What's your dirty money seen?

You can keep your dirty loving
I don't need your dirty loving
Where's your dirty loving been?
What's your dirty loving seen?

With your dirty, dirty love and your dirty money
How we gonna wash the stain clean, buddy?
Tell me, which policeman could take the test -
put the bluey-white back in this dirty old mess?
And here I stand waiting at your door
Waiting for you to dish up just a little bit more
of your dirty, dirty love - your dirty, dirty money
How we gonna wash the stain clean, buddy?

Well, the cleanest thing you own is your dirty books
but you keep 'em hid away, coz of the dirty looks
that all your dirty friends with their dirty little jokes
would give you if they knew you knew what they all know - that your

Dirty, dirty love and your dirty money
ain't never gonna wash the stain clean, buddy
Tell me, which politician could take the test -
put the bluey-white back in this dirty old mess?
And here I stand waiting at your door
Waiting for you to dish up just a little bit more
of your dirty, dirty love - your dirty, dirty money
How we gonna wash the stain clean, buddy?

You can keep this lonely chord
Take it as a sign of your just reward
for being squeaky-clean; it's the new hygiene
Come up smelling like a rose dipped in Listerine
and sleeping like a log, man, sound as a bell
but you're dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty as hell

With your dirty, dirty love and your dirty money, etc., etc.

You can't keep your dirty money
Coz I need your dirty money
One thing's been bothering me
How we gonna make your dirty money clean?

You can't keep your dirty loving
Coz I need your dirty loving
One thing's been troubling me
How we gonna make your dirty loving clean?

With your dirty, dirty love and your dirty money, etc., etc.
Track Name: No place called home
No Place Called Home (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

My home town...
Well, they'll love you to death
(and that's no idle threat)
Squeeze you so hard that the fingermarks show
on the x-rays

And they pinned you down
And it's cold and it's mean and you never fit in
You walked away from the pack
but they treat you like kin anyway

But you always go back there
When you're broke and alone
A tickertape parade
As you go crawling home

My home town...
Well, it's streets stocked with memories you'd rather forget
a kiss in the doorway
the day you let her slip away

And they haunt you down
But the people got married,
the places renamed
You thought it was them
But really it's you who can't change

But you always go back there
When you're broke and alone
A tickertape parade
As you go crawling home

(break)

But you always said one day
You'd go it alone
So just keep on walking
'Coz there's no place called home
There's no place called home
Track Name: Herna Bar
Herna Bar - Lavash

Come on man, don't you tell me you don't wanna get high
Come on man, don't you tell me you don't wanna get high
Ain't been high in so very long
I don't know right from wrong
Come on man don't you tell me you don't wanna get high

Come on girl, let me take you to a Herna Bar
Come on girl, let me take you to a Herna Bar
Where the people laugh and sing
When they play on the slot machines
Come on girl, let me take you to a Herna Bar

Come on girl, won't you dance with me all night long
Come on girl, won't you dance with me all night long
Don't know all those Boy Band moves
but I got ol' style rhythm and groove
Now come on girl, won't you dance with me all night long
Track Name: Liverpool Rain
Liverpool Rain (Words/Music: Justin Lavash)

And as the night grows cold
and you're sitting there cursing my name
I'm thinking of way back when coz'
I'm thinking of Liverpool rain

I was naive and proud
and I'm sad to say little has changed
I had some wild ideas
something 'bout fortune and fame

and I took you from home
and we made it to London by midnight
since then it seems that nothing's the same
and you're not going anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
and I'll see you in the rain somewhere

Is it growing old?
Watching it all washed away
down gutters and gullies and gunnels
just like that Liverpool rain

And are you keeping score
of debts that I still have to pay
Can we just call it a draw?
Or tell them that rain stopped play

Coz you dish out the dirt,
jump around on the hood in stilettoes
God knows, you'd say, it's long overdue

But I'm not going anywhere
and I'll see you in the rain somewhere
Down Bold street in the rain
Lark Lane in the rain
I'll see you in the rain somewhere
Track Name: Easy train
Easy Train - (Words/Music - Justin Lavash)

I wanna ride on the easy train
Get a first-class ticket take me out of the rain
Sitting in the diner with a glass of champagne
You want a window seat?
It can be arranged.
I wanna ride on the easy train

Find me somebody who can take the reins
I've got a long limousine; it's a top of the range
Start the car - won't you take me home James
Here's something for you
You can keep the change
Find me somebody who can take the reins

Won't you get me a doctor who can ease the pain
Tell him I'll pay him when my ship comes in
I've got to face the music, got to take the blame
but first I think I'll have the same again
Get me a doctor who can ease the pain
Get me a doctor who can ease the pain

I've got to go and get it straight with the man
It's been a long time coming, been a hell of a shabang
Well I wonder if he sees me in the bigger plan
Sometimes I wonder if he gives a damn
I've got to go and get it straight with the man
I've got to go and get it straight with the man
Track Name: Avalanche
Avalanche - (Words and music - justin Lavash)

It was getting real bad
it was hell for a while
They were forcing my hand
I was forcing a smile

I was running on empty
trying to keep with the pack
I was saying a prayer
they would cut me some slack

Sometimes it feels like you're drowning
and they give you a wave
but when you get to the shore
that's when you're going to get saved

All that speaking in tongues
all those reasons and rhymes
did we run out of rope for the lifeline?

So hold out your hand with the olive branch
hold on to your hats, boys
Here comes the avalanche

Here comes the avalanche
Here comes the avalanche
Here comes the avalanche

I was feeling so old
I was fighting for breath
I was counting the days
I was looking like death

I was pushing the boat out
getting out of line
Put your hand on your heart
Say it ain't justified

Sometimes it feels like you're flying
Then they chop you a line
Sometimes they call it a living
but we both know it's dying

So I hold out my hand with the olive branch
hold on to your hats, boys
Here comes the avalanche

Here comes the avalanche
Here comes the avalanche
Here comes the avalanche

<break>

So I hold out my hand with the olive branch
hold on to your hats, boys
Here comes the avalanche

Here comes the avalanche
Here comes the avalanche
Here comes the avalanche
