Lyrics

They Ain' The Same

Written By: Tim Gregory / Daniel O'Donnell

Verse 1
Black and White
Green and Grey
Dark and Light
Night and Day
Boys and Girls
Come out to play
Every dog has its’ day

Chorus
They ain’t the same, They ain’t the same

Verse 2
Left and Right
Sound and Sight
Sea and Sky
Passes by
Young and old
Won’t be told
What you touch
Won’t turn to gold

Chorus
They ain’t the same, They ain’t the same
They ain’t the same, They ain’t the same

Bridge

Verse 3
Love and War
Rich and Poor
Rain and Shine
Yours and Mine
Fire and Ice
Once or twice
You’ve made your deal
Now name your prize

Chorus
They ain’t the same, They ain’t the same x 2

Verse 4
Hot and Cold
Cut and Fold
Can’t be bought Can’t be sold
Space and Time
Writ and Rhyme
Lost it all
On women and wine

They ain’t the same, They ain’t the same x 4

I saw you in a limousine
I bet you think you’re pretty clean

But you’re a dirty girl x 4

Verse 2
Voices just like broken glass
Bet you think you’ve got some class
Don’t you think you’re living fast
But I think your time has passed

Chorus
Cos you’re a dirty girl x 4

Now it’s time to let you go
Everybody told me so
You think you rock but you don’t know

Lisa Says

Written By: Tim Gregory / Daniel O'Donnell

Lisa Says

Verse 1
The boy’s working hard he’s on his beat
He’s been up and down on easy street
But now the times are hard he’s gotta make ends meet
He’ll do what Lisa says
Workin’ all day for his daily bread
He’s gotta do alright ‘cos of what she said
She won’t give an inch he’s gotta earn his bed
He’ll do what Lisa says

Chrous
Lisa says that she loves him
She says she adores him
But she won’t give him anything
There’s no love in the morning
Lisa takes what she gives him
While he is sleepin’
He’s just workin’ for Lisa

Verse 2
There’s only so much the boy can take
He’s gotta get it right make no mistake
He’s gotta be on time he can’t be late
He’ll do what Lisa says
Workin’ to rule can’t lose his cool
He’s gotta stay on top he’s Lisa’s fool
He’s gotta give his all that’s Lisa’s rule
He’ll do what Lisa says

Chrous

Verse 3 (no intro)
Aah ah ah yeah yeah yeah
Aah ah ah yeah yeah yeah
Aah ah ah yeah yeah yeah
He’ll do what Lisa says
(Repeat)
She didn’t come home from work today
He waited around til the break of day
She said she’d be late but there’s no way
He’ll do what Lisa says
(Repeat)

Didn’t care all along
Now I have a better girl
Better girl makes me strong

Can't Resist

Written By: Tim Gregory

Can’t Resist

Jump in the fire cos’ you’ll never ever know what hit you.
Jump in the fire cos’you’ll never ever know what I do.
Jump in the fire will you never ever know you can’t resist

I never wanted you to know the things that I’ve been through.
I never ever asked of you to do the things I wouldn’t do

Jump in the fire and you’ll never ever do what I do.
Jump in the fire and forever you will fly like I do.
Jump in the fire cos’ you’ll never never be so damn true.

I never wanted you to know the things that I’ve been through.
I never ever asked of you to do the things I wouldn’t do

You can’t resist (repeat)

Jump in the fire and your dreams will disappear like mine do.
Jump in the fire and the flames will disappear inside you.
Jump in the fire and you’ll never turn away you can’t resist

Deal’s been set in stone
Feel her shakin’ to the bone
