Tuesday In The Park 

Jigsaw puzzle with a color code 
All the pieces in time 
Come together it's a narrow road 
Now you can make up your mind 
Be where you are 
Spend Tuesday in the park 
Sleep in the sun now, you blue suede 
superlark 

You've got better things to do 
Use your medicine 
Looks like Tuesday in the park again 
Hound dog chewing up a barbed-wire fence 
Keep your nose to the ground 
Stop this chasing round it makes no sense 
You've still got time to sit down 
Be where you are spend Tuesday in the park 
Sleep in the sun now, you blue suede 
superlark 

You've got better things to do 
Use your medicine 
Looks like Tuesday in the park again 
Cross-eyed beggar with your pigeon toes 
Watch your confidence bleed 
Don't you know what every pigeon knows 
You can get what you need 
Be where you are spend Tuesday in the park 
Sleep in the sun now, you blue suede 
superlark 

You've got better things to do 
Use your medicine 
Looks like Tuesday in the park again

Crucify Me 

Lend me your coat 

It's got a lot of nice buttons up and down the 
front and back 
Show me a smile 

Like a pair of worn out sneakers on a beaten 
path 

Maybe you look at me now 
Just like you look at yourself 


Maybe you see why you crucify me 
Try to behave 

Keep a nice comfortable distance but you 
really don't 
Walking away 

You think you might need some assistance 
but you really won't 
Maybe you look at me now 
Just like you look at yourself 
Maybe you see why you crucify me 
It's sort of amusing 

How you like pretending to make it what you 
want to see 

I saw you alone naked like a monkey 
You're not what you pretend to be 
Maybe you look at me now 
Just like you look at yourself 
Maybe you see why you crucify me

Romeo 

Romeo please carry me tonight 
She's awake 
And all the things I hear 
From my room 

You know that I can make them disappear 
Like the moon 

She swore that this would be the last time 
Hiding beneath the bed, the war is over she 
said, 

"Romeo please carry me tonight 
Take me down beneath the western light 
Carry me away from here, take me far away 
And we'll be happy ever after if you dare 
And I will be there" 

On your knees 
My little everything 
Like you do 

She whispered "please" and faded into black, 
I'm so blue 

Ten thousand kisses from the last time 
You put me in my place 
And wiped the tears from my face 


Romeo please carry me tonight 
Take me down beneath the western light 
Carry me away from here, take me far away 
And we'll be happy ever after if you dare 
And I will be there 

I still remember when we used to live and 
love and laugh out loud 
The only difference is there's nothing left to 
love and laugh about 
Romeo please carry me tonight 
Take me down beneath the western light 
Carry me away from here, take me far away 
And we'll be happy ever after if you dare 
I will be there 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle-drums/vocals,

Never Gonna Be The Same 

I didn't mean to make you cry, my mistake 
To hear the sound of your goodbye is hard to 
take 

You listened to me like a broken record 
It made a fool of me 

Can’t you see you've got me lonely to my 
knees 

Now I'm no stranger to disgrace I've cried 
before 

And just the memory of your face is my 
reward 

I sit and listen to the same old records 
It makes no difference to me 
Can't you see you've got me lonely to my 
knees 

I want to hold you if you want me to 
But like I told you 

It's never gonna be the same without you 
Never gonna be the same 
I sit and listen to the same old records 
It makes no difference to me 
Can't you see you've got me lonely to my 
knees

Carousel 

Ride that carousel to Mars 
Getting closer every day 
Violins and my guitar 
Take me all the way 
Flying horses make me laugh 
With the wind rushing my face 
Yellow green and red giraffe 
Picking up the pace 
Merrily I'm going round 
Marry me I'm going down 
Pick your feet up off the ground 
We don't talk much anymore 
Just keep trying and pretending 
Sometimes silence is the face of war 
Looking like a friend 
Merrily I'm going round 
Marry me I'm going down 
Pick your feet up off the ground 
And I missed the golden ring 
Love is all we need to spendLove is all we 
can afford 

Got my ticket in my hand 
Tell me who could ask for more 
Merrily I'm going round 
Marry me I'm going down 
Pick you feet up off the ground 
Marry me I'm going down 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle- 
drums/vocals/bass 

Make My Own Tracks 

Make my own tracks 
Wherever I go 
Just my own way 
Nothing personal 
I won't follow you 
Does that bother you 

Fought the front line 
Whatever I did 
Busted my back 
Just burning to live 


But I'm older now 
Moving slower now 
Make my own tracks 
Wherever I go 
Just my own way 
Nothing personal 
I won't follow you 
Does that bother you 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle-drums/vocals, 
Nancy Doyle-bass, Angela Riggio-Keyboards 

Get It Back 

Has anyone seen my history 
Was it torn from pages of photographs 
It isn't such a mystery 
And the more I see, It makes me want to 
laugh 

I need to more than I can say 
Does anybody know where people go 
When they cross the line between live and die 
I'm not so sure I want to know 
'cause the more I find it makes me want to cry 
I need to more than I can say 
First they take apart the love until there's 
nothing left 

Break your heart enough to make it bleed 
And if you feel the need to ask don't even 
bother 

Forget about it brother cause you ain't gonna 
get it back 

Would you like to be at home at last 
Would you sell your pieces of no man's land 
History she's fading fast 
And the more I find the less I understand 
I need you more than I can say 
First they take apart the love until there's 
nothing left 

Break your heart enough to make it bleed 
And if you feel the need to ask don't even 
bother 

Forget about it brother cause you ain't gonna 
get it back 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle-drums/vocals, 


If I Fall 

Morning comes and I go 
Looking out the window 
To the blue sky and the concrete 
Love is waiting somewhere 
And I want to be there 
To feel the pavement under my feet 
If I fall where you fall 
Will you stand where I stand 
Because I'm already down to the floor 
Yes I already am 
I was born a sinner 
The likes of a beginner 
I bled my conscience like a river 
To a missionary 
Who wept like Mother Mary 
Saying I could be forgiven 
If I fall where you fall 
Will you stand where I stand 
Because I'm already down to the floor 
Yes I already am 
Treading shallow water 
Just like mother's daughter 
Between the blue sky and the concrete 
Will I crack the pavement 
If I release this burden 
Will there be someone to catch me 
If I fall where you fall 
Will you stand where I stand 
Because I'm already down to the floor 
Yes I am 

If I fall where you fall 
Will you stand where I stand 
Because I'm already down to the floor 
Yes I already am 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle- 
drums/vocals/bass, Kevin-keys 

Bribery 

Mary wanted to be in the show 
Daddy didn't want the world to know 
Any other place she'd like to go 


Anywhere at all 

She started playing with a kickin band 
I heard him saying you could use a man 
I think he really didn't understand 
Anything at all 
This is bribery 

He shouted "Mary where'd you get so tough 
My little precious diamond in the rough 
Wasn't the money that I sent enough 
Now you never call" 

She said "I never let the money talk 
I only listen to the way you walk 
A diamond in the rough is just a rock 
Anyway at all" 

This is bribery

P.O.W. 

Please don't try to shelter me 
And wrap me in the promises you make 
Please don't try to solve my tears 
And leave me picking up the pieces of a 
perilous mistake 

And you wonder if I'm strong enough to find 
my own way out 

When you always leave me stranded in the 
shadow of a doubt 
Are you ready to release me 
I am ready to be freed 

You know I can't escape this feeling anymore 
And if time is all it takes me 
I will loosen up these chains 
Just enough to make my getaway 
And I won't be your prisoner of war 
You know I'm the better fool 
For dancing with an angel dressed in black 
Who called it a choice I made 
But there was a voice I had to follow 
And I'm never going back 
I come crawling from the wreckage, shake the 
dust from my jeans 

Now the bitter end looks sweeter than these 
eyes have ever seen 


Are you ready to release me... 

With your mystery unraveling 
With every word you speak 
You come rushing in 
To save me from belief 
Years fall from your memory as quickly 
As the tears fall from my eyes 
Please say you remember me 
I was the one who found you hiding in that 
terrible disguise 

And you offered you apology in the manner of 
a kiss 

But you know it doesn't matter anymore 
Are you ready to release me... 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle-drums/vocals, 
Melissa Connell-bass 

Want Your Love 

One lonely night one lonely day 
I was so down there was nothing to live for 
Nothing to say 
Talk about love 
You wanna talk about pain 
Talk about times that we said we would 
Always be one and the same 
And I went night after night day after day 
Holding my breath every step of the way 
Week after week month after month 
But I never really knew what it was 
Want your love, want your love 
Don't wanna fight it, don't wanna lose it 
I can't deny it, I can't refuse it 
Want your love, want your love 
Time heals the wounds 
Ain't that what we say 
But when the hands don't move 
Emotional decay 
Talk about love 
You wanna talk about pain 
Talk about times when your heart aches so 
bad 

You know that love is insane 
And I went night after night day after day 
Holding my breath every step of the way 


Week after week 
Month after month 
But I never really knew what it was 
Want your love... 

Sal-guitars/vocals, Michelle-drums/vocals, 
Melissa Connell-bass 

Fly 

Monday morning, too much thinking can take 
your soul away 

And happiness becomes a broken armchair 
where you would like to stay 
How much would you try, just enough to get 
by 

And tell me how far, just how far would you fly 
You toss the baby with the dirty water out into 
the street 

And from your shoulders all the weight falls to 
the ground 

But you forgot to wipe your feet 
How much would you try, just enough to get 
by 

And tell me how far, just how far would you fly 
It's hard to mend a broken wing 
When you don't believe in anything 
Tell me how far... 

You live in color like a bad production of a 
daytime TV show 

And the miles between you and your distant 
lover are farther than you know 
How much would you try, just enough to get 
by 

And tell me how far, just how far would you fly 
How far, just how far would you fly
