Track Name: Golden Boy
Golden boy you've got a hold on me
What a sight, if only I could see
But golden boy you're blinding me
Something's coming over me

Golden boy it's hard to believe
That you light up a room and take it back when you leave
Golden boy, you are my joy and my grief
Something's coming over me

I'm floating in a dream
I'm punch-drunk and I'm needing
Good company

Golden boy take me under your wing
Giving me one and every reason to sing
No one boy has got the light that you bring
Shine it down and through me

Shed a little light, shed a little light

I'm floating in a dream
I'm punch-drunk and I'm needing
Good company

Golden boy glow through the trees
You're one with the sunshine and one with the breeze
One with the shiver that's running through me
Golden boy you're all I need
Track Name: Have a Heart
As far as the eye can see
Nothing more no less
I’m blind to all above and below
To east or west

You say it best
Unless I’m blessed with ears
As biased as these eyes of mine

These eyes of mine
These eyes of mine
Oh darling have a heart
For these poor eyes of mine

As far as thee I can reach
Nothing more no less
My arms won’t move but you
Across the sea they’d stretch

And I’m a wreck
Here aching for your arms in mine
These arms of mine
These arms of mine
Oh darling lend a hand
To these poor arms of mine

And I won’t be smiling til I see you again
And I can’t stop dreaming I might
Be the one you’d long to have by side
The one you’d kiss good night

And I won’t be smiling till I see you again
And I can’t stop dreaming I might
Ae the one you’d long to have by side
The one you’d kiss good night

And I won’t be smiling till I see you again
And I can’t stop dreaming I might
Be the one you’d long to have by side
The one you’d kiss tonight
The one you’d kiss tonight
The one you’d kiss tonight

As far the eye can see
Nothing more no less
I’m blind to all above and below
To east or west
I’ll do my best
And never less
To give you all that’s in this heart of mine

This heart of mine
This heart of mine
Oh darling be the one for this poor heart of mine
Track Name: Thirteen
Won't you let me walk you home from school
Won't you let me meet you at the pool
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you

Won't you tell your dad, "Get off my back"
Tell him what we said 'bout 'Paint It Black'
Rock 'n Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of
Would you be an outlaw for my love
If it's so, well, let me know
If it's "no", well, I can go
I won't make you
Track Name: Liquor
You can hold your liquor
Only getting sweeter by the sip
My little fingers
Wrestle yours and find a perfect grip
Your thumb’s too big
To wrap around, so
I guess I’ll tuck
My little one down

It’s so obvious
Don’t say anything
Cuz I know, I know

Maybe we should bicker
But we’ve never been the types
To get all bothered
Over little things, for little fights
You’ll never be
the one to blame
You're off scot free
Oh what a cryin’ shame

It’s so obvious
Don’t say anything
Cuz I know, I know
Track Name: Dinah
Dinah what you doing in this kitchen all alone?
Sky is mighty fine tonight the stars are shining low
Oh and what a crying shame it’d be to let it go
So Dinah come a walking with me slow

Dinah why you hiding out on this summer’s night?
Tucked up in the kitchen when the moon’s so bright
Dinah I've been dreaming of making you my wife
So take a little stroll with me tonight

Dinah oh Dinah
See what you’ve been missing
Dinah oh Dinah
I don’t care who’s listening
Every neighbour knows that you’ve got someone in your kitchen

They’re singing
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Someone I know
A stand up gentleman who’s going to steal her heart away
And it’s about good time she let it go

Dinah you’re the fairest of them all across the land
Dinah for you I’ll always be a better man
Never was a better time to offer you my hand
So Dinah let me know where you stand

Dinah you’ve been waiting in this kitchen all alone
Waiting for your own true love but scared to let it go
You don’t need to worry
Won’t ever let you go
So Dinah come a walking with me slow

They’re singing
Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah
Someone I know
A stand up gentleman who’s going to steal her heart away
And it’s about good time she let it go
