Rare Songs


"Little Sinner"
Drivin' home, I saw her on the street
Dressed so tight, yeah, she looked so neat.
All the boys, as they were passin' by
They tried to catch that little girl's eye
I said to myself, don't it seem like a crime
To think that little girl used to be mine

They call her Little Sinner
'Cause they can see
She's got the devil in her
Little Sinner
There's nothin' that I wouldn't do
To have a little sinner like you

It's comin' back to me, the times we had
How could somethin' so good ever get so bad
Yeah, me and Jimmy, we got drunk that night
God knows, baby, I didn't do you right
They say you haven't loved until you've lost
I'll get you back no matter what the cost
Yeah

They call her Little Sinner
'Cause they can see
She's got the devil in her
Little Sinner
There's nothin' that I wouldn't do
To have a little sinner like you

Wild, wild days and wild, wild nights
I stood up for you, baby
And you were worth the fight
Didn't care about tomorrow
Cheap red wine
We couldn't get much higher
So reckless and young 
Full of lust and desire
How could I waste it
I want you so bad I can taste it

Hey, don't it seem like a crime
To think she used to be mine

Call my baby Little Sinner
'Cause they can see
She's got the devil in her
Little Sinner
Oh, I'd like to win her
What a boy would do
For a girl like you

"Never Gonna Say Goodbye"
Another day you didn't go to school
You were in my arms, breaking all the rules
Another night without you by my side
This ain't the way to spend our lives

Sometimes I wanna leave this town
Find a better place where they won't put us down
I know time is on our side
So I'm hanging on somehow

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna say goodbye
As long as we're together
Baby, we'll survive

Never gonna let you go
Never gonna turn away
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Never gonna give you up

People talk about us on the street
Rumors fly every time we meet
But we don't ever have to be ashamed
Our love is real, it ain't no game

You say that we should hide away
I promise baby we don't have to be afraid
I know time is on our side
We've just gotta hang on somehow

"Shady People"

Don't walk the wild side, just turn around
Don't flush your money or make a sound
Don't want for nothing, just leave it be
Making contact is what you don't need
Talking 'bout shady, shady people

Now nothing matters but yourself
Don't draw attention to no one else
Don't answer questions, just walk straight on
Don't count on safety until you get home
(I'm) talking 'bout shady, shady people

They don't want nobody here
So make your way or make it clear
Boy, ain't that wild
They just won't run with the crowd

Walk the concrete, look straight ahead
Remember nothing what no one said
Don't look suspicious, blend right in
As if your alibi is wearing thin
Talking 'bout shady, shady people

Don't think twice before you go
Don't mess with people you don't know
Boy, ain't that wild
They just won't run with the crowd

Don't pay no mind what you see in here
It's not your claim, don't interfere
If you've made it through once before
Don't come around this place no more
Talking 'bout shady, shady people

Just don't come 'round here again
You don't want to be like them
Still, ain't that wild
They just won't run with the crowd

Talking 'bout shady, shady people


"New Beginning"

Got the job done, I settled the score
Did all bits and pieces 'til there was no more
Achieved what I came for, I paid my dues
Did all the groundwork, yes, I carried the news

But when me and my past finally parted
I found out I was right back where I started
I made a new beginning

I looked for a house, all I found was a door
Led me right back to where I was before
I followed the signs, but they led me astray
I missed the connection down the street of one way

And my vision slowly faded
I was nothing but tired and jaded
I made a new beginning

I don't wanna know whatever I've been told
I don't wanna say there ain't no other way
I don't wanna be where I'm supposed to be
I got nowhere to go but everywhere

And when I need it the most
But expect it the least
I pick myself up
Get back on my feet
When I've done my time
Shoveled the dirt
Dealt with the memories
And the times I got hurt

Yes, the sweet things that I've tasted
And all the chances that I've wasted
I'll make a new beginning


"New Year's Eve"

Tell me what you hear
Do you hear a waterfall
Is the water clear
Can you see me there

Tell me what you know
Do you know of paradise
Where do shadows go
When they meet in the air

And it's one for loving
Two is serenity
And it's three for something
That I know I'll always be
Now tomorrow's coming
And you're sleeping here with me

Dear New Year's Eve

Tell me there's a place
Where the sun will never set
Covered with your grace

Could it be that we are here right now
Here between the rock and rain
And as it rumbles down
We will see
