Lyrics

Backstreet Heaven

Written By: Craig Braginsky

Bums on the corner – there by the door
They cling to their bottles – and stare through your soul

Businessmen junkies – where do I begin
I call it a form of salvation – you call it a sin

Morality fools, I can’t share your pain
This etiquette burden – “I’m glad that you came”

Losing your conscience could help you win the fight
And that’s where you’ll find me there in the night

I’ve gone to backstreet heaven
Where the girls don’t ask no questions
And a fifty dollar bill becomes my ticket to salvation
On a train away from loneliness
Just slip your hand beneath her dress
And feel the peace of backstreet heaven.

Symptoms of life – afflictions the same
Their children’s so tired of playing that game
They come to this place where you can’t hide your face
Where you suffer in peace, where there is no disgrace.

Morality fools, I can’t share your pain
This etiquette burden – “I’m glad that you came”

Losing your conscience could help you win the fight
And that’s where you’ll find me there in the night

I’ve gone to backstreet heaven
Where the girls don’t ask no questions
And a fifty dollar bill becomes my ticket to salvation
On a train away from loneliness
Just slip your hand beneath her dress
And feel the peace of backstreet heaven.

Going to backstreet heaven
Backstreet heaven

How'm I Gonna Sleep

Written By: Craig Braginsky


Painting your picture on a shadowy wall
In a room filled with sadness I still hear her call

The memories so clear -the words that she said
This echoing passion that beats in my head

The whispers of darkness, the sound of your name
It’s there deep inside but I don’t feel the same

Hey, you always played my heart like a game-
So far from heaven I fall-

How’m I gonna sleep
Without your love
How’m I gonna live
Don’t want to live without your love
Always making promises
You never meant to keep-
How’m I gonna sleep

Always a fool- I thought that you cared
Reaching for something that never was there

Though I don’t have you, you still have my heart
You hold me together, you tear me apart

And you whisper from darkness – you call out my name
You’re there deep inside, but it don’t feel the same

Chorus

And the night goes on
Thought I heard your call like a voice in the trees
And I’m lost in circles
Not a soul in the night – you can’t be…

If I Don't Have You

Written By: Craig Braginsky


I don’t need to take another breath
If I don’t have you

I don’t need to feel the sun again
If I don’t have you

I don’t need to say another word
If I don’t have you

Just another broken heart you’ve hurt
If I don’t have you

I don’t need to cry another tear
If I don’t have you

And I won’t be lost ‘cause I won’t be here
If I don’t have you

Repeat with variations
