Track Name: Falling Off the Wagon
Hello, my friends
I hope we meet again
The sweetness goes
It echoes off the ground and up into your windows

I hate to go
To leave before the show
But the night, it wears on
And we'll play our favorite songs

And it's true what they say, I get carried away
By the sound that these strings and my fingers can make
And they move me again, like I've found an old friend
Who was there for me, love

Sold my soul not a moment to late
For a kick drum, lover, a guitar and a bass
I said I sold my soul not a moment too late
For a kick drum, lover, a guitar and a bass

You said you want it, you need it, you want it, you need it
Track Name: Got Soul
Got Soul

Hey I've got soul if you want it
Still you need more than you're given
I've got my own now

Shake down your boots in the evening
Fly from your coup when you're feeling
I've got my own now

Now that the rain comes down they want you
Now that you're moving out they need you
Now that the sun goes down, now

Shake down your boots in the evening
Fly from your coup when you're feeling
I've got my own now

Here in the night you did feel their arms
Grasped so tight to your back
And I've got my own now

Now that the rain comes down they want you
Now that you're moving out they need you
Now that the sun goes down, now

Now that the wind, it howls
Their hearts, they break with the bitter sound
They need you
A piece of me is a piece of you right now

And there's no time for you, my dear
So there's no reason why I'm here

And there's no time for you, my friend
So there's a reason for an end

Deutsch

Ich liebte dich, aber vergan deine Gierigkeit ist es fertig

English

I loved you, but because of your greed this has ended
Track Name: Hallelujah
Misunderstand me if you will
But I've got nowhere else to go from here
'Cause in the end love, we're just needles in the hay
So let's move around in circles till our bodies melt away

So please understand me if you can
I've got nowhere else to go from here with you
The wind it whispers soft and pulls against your face
And moves around in circles till your body melts away

Hallelujah
Hallelujah love I'm gone
She shook me from her shoes
Now
Hallelujah
Hallelujah love she's gone
I kicked her from my boots
Now

So, misunderstand me if you will
I've got nowhere else to go from here with you
'Cause in the end love we're just needles in the hay
So let's move around in circles till our bodies slip away
Move around in circles till our bodies slip away
Track Name: The Valley Below
If I wasn't born
If I wasn't here
She'd move herself back down to the valley below
'Cause there the night is calm
And here the wind is cold
So move yourself back down to the valley below

This is not where I come from
This is not where I belong
Moving soft, so slowly she said
I'll move through the night love, I'll sleep when I'm dead

As the wind it howls against the trees so slow
She moves herself back down to the valley below
'Cause there the night is calm, and here the wind is cold
So she moves herself back down to the valley below

And this is not where I come from
No, this is not where I belong
And speaking soft, so slowly she says
I'll move through the night love, I'll sleep when I'm dead

Now she's got me moving slow
I don't know where to go
I guess I'll go on my own way

If I wasn't born
If I wasn't here
She'd move herself back down to the valley below
'Cause there the night is calm, and here the wind is cold
So move yourself back down to the valley below
