Lyrics

Jasmine

Written By: Steve,Jones

So i took a train to Berlin to find out where to begin and the smell of Jasmine drifts in the air. I needed time to think found optimisism in a drink, and i lost it with the following ten.
CHORUS
And you are not sure where you belong in these books your sick of reading on and the arms of something you are dreaming of.

So i staggered the streets of this town wondering at this new life i found and the smell of Jasmine drifts in the air.
In the shadow of the sun and the crowds of people moving on, and she calls me to say catch the last train to Amsterdam and She calls me to say catch the last train to start again.
2nd Chorus

Last Chorus
And the past slowly drifts away and i pray i keep finding better days and Jasmine keep your hope in the air. Jasmine

The Ballad Of The Bushranger Kelly

Written By: Steve,Jones

Seems the world is unjust for me, just wanna go about my business but they wanna hang me. From Greta to Wangaratta and even Pentridge always riding my own horse but i'm labelled a thief.

Never wanted to kill them at Stringybark Creek, but if i didn't they would have killed me!

Now i'm on the run an outlaw with not enough guns!
Gonna take my gang to Jerilderie, write a letter about what i've undergone.

CHORUS
This is the Ballad of The Bushranger Kelly who stood up and fought the law. I ain't takin this from you no more! i'm the Bushranger Kelly and i am the law!

SOLO

CHORUS
This is the Ballad of the Bushranger Kelly who stood up and fought the law. Hey Victoria Police I ain't takin it no more i'm the Bushranger Kelly and i am the law!
The Ballad of The Bushranger Kelly who in Glenrowan stood up to the law,
I'm bullet proof ain't takin it no more! I'm the Bushranger Ned Kelly!

Facing my death.............
Well Such Is life.............

As Good As It Gets

Written By: Steve Jones

Is this as good as it gets? You spend your whole life trying to find something that may not exist, is this as good as it's gonna be.

Are we all gonna turn around at once she said? Are we all going to make a smile for you? I ain't walkin down that dark street no more she said i ain't doin this for you!

As a matter of fact i've changed i said. To late to long we're through!
And so begins the time to move along was it me or was it you?
Was it me or was it you?

And they say nah nah nah nah nah nah nah ah ah

CHORUS
And when the show is over and the lights are gone i still can rely on you.
Even on the darkest lonely nights your there when the sun needs its room, you can always count on the moon.
You can always count on the moon...................................................
