Hassles In Montreal they have "Bride & Groom" - in Melbourne we have "Velma Grove" and I dunno which I prefer. Just love 'em both. Very infectious grooves, wonderful vocals & instrumentation.

Track Name: Born To Roam
Use me up til my bodies no more
I’ll use my legs til my muscles have grown sore
Never have I seen a sight so sweet
Than a lonely solo man who's on a lonely solo street

When I'm alone
I was born to roam
When I'm alone
I was born to roam  

My voice will shake when the sun is coming down
And from my lips I’ll hear an unfamiliar sound
If you hate me then I sure as hell hate you
Cause I’m a man without a border and there’s nothing I won’t do

When I’m alone
I was born to roam
When I’m alone
I was born to roam

And I know that there’s a reason that I never thought of leaving with you
And If I had a second chance I’d steal another dance from you

I’m not an angry man, but with you I’m not who I am
You make it feel like a sin, cause I’ve been known to give a damn

Stay with me til all my hair goes gray
And I’ll make good with all these pretty things I say
When I'll give and I'll get down on one knee
'Cause I’m saving all my loving for someone who’s loving me

When I’m alone
I was born to roam
When I’m alone
I was born to roam
Track Name: Of The Sea
Pretty girl in the colour of the sea
What can I do so you’ll notice me?
Should I sing for you? Or rely on my charm
Are you here on someone else’s arm?

I was much too dumb to notice 
There was even something wrong
‘Cause I’m not happy, when I am strong

Can we learn to laugh again?
Will we separate now and then?
‘Cause I miss your smile and when you listened closely 
When I spoke of things so grandiosely 

I was much too dumb to notice 
You were listening to my song
‘Cause I’m not happy, when I am strong

Yes I know that you feel overwhelmed
'Cause the people you like don’t know you so well
There’s this part of me that wants to see you succeed 
So the people ‘round here can see what I see
So the people ‘round here can see what I see

I was much too dumb to notice
There was even something wrong
'Cause I'm not happy, when I am strong
Track Name: Blackbird In A Cage
There's this girl that I know who puts braids in her hair
Her heart's in the south when there's frost in the air
She don't know if she's staying, she's destined to leave
But she likes my playing so I want to believe

She puts on his records and closes her eyes
Her hands move in motion to the sounds of his cries
And she knows he is broken but she'd still have his ring
Cause she'd pick up his pieces as long as he sings
She'd pick up his pieces as long as he sings

Oh why, oh why do I trust this heart of mine?
It's been fooled in the past and I don't think it's different this time
Oh why, oh why, do I want to believe?
My hands are too spoken and my love is naive

The wine is much sweeter than the bread that is served
And she is much kinder than the man she deserves
Cause she knows all the songs her mom used to play
Hoping to sing to her weakness one day

Oh why, oh why do I trust this heart of mine?
It's been fooled before and I don't think it's different this time
Oh why, oh why, do I want to believe?
My hands are too spoken and my love is naive

Men only suffer when they think alone
A blackbird in a cage would like nice on his thrown
But there are men who best me who know birds are to fly
And he is the dirt, where I am the sky
He is the dirt, where I am the sky
Track Name: Across The Bend
You should be happy you took my name 
You should be glad I did the same
There’s a reason the sun goes down
And it always comes back around 

There’s a season the trees go white
There’s a reason a dog will bite
It’s not a crime for a man to fold
When the lonely nights are cold

I gave you my heart and you put it on the mend
How could you race if you can’t see across the bend?
Don’t you feel like we’ve come too far
Your words are so deep that your pen leaves a scar 

Do you remember when I was the one?
I was handsome, second to none
People came far to hear me play
But I had nowhere left to stay

I gave you my heart and you put it on the mend
How could you race if you can’t see across the bend?
Don’t you feel like we’ve come too far
Your words are so deep that your pen leaves a scar 
Track Name: Everything I Do
There was this man who saw me
Cause he liked my cowboy chords
He was desperate to know
Where I’d play before

I said, I run with the wolves
And I forget about the times
She said that she don’t love him
And she wants to see her mine

So I signed on the dots to sell all the words I knew
Everything I do, I do for you.

You found a boy to take you
He doesn’t like the things you love
Doesn’t call you pretty
Or say you are enough

Now, there is dirt on my hands
But sole on my feet
And I’m just looking for
Something concrete

I’ll make you very happy, I’ll make you feel brand new
Everything I do, I do for you.

I’ll be your fire when the nights are cold and grey
I’ll be your blanket when the warmth has gone away
You take what’s yours and know that I’ll be fine
Cause your heart is safe, right here right here next to mine

I am known for my songs
But cursed for my name
Thank god you met me
And you don’t feel the same

When this song is money
This guitar is more than gold
You won’t to worry ‘cause
My lovin’ don’t grow old

I promise to be gracious and I promise to be true
Everything I do I’ll do for you.
