Extra Strength | Lyrics

Hard To Love  (Live)
(Ward / Hess / Lesperance)

You come on like a sweet child here drive me wild when I want you
You giving me a rough time then you change your mind then you want me
You come so close, but you never stay
You take my heart, and then you walk away

You're hard to love, but it's hard to let you go
I need you now, but I'm afraid of letting you know
It's hard to love, and never understand
How it slips right through your hands

I wanna say you're mine but acting like you don't know me
All I need is one night just to make it right when you're lonely
I got to know if we can make it last

Can't pretend I don't want you to know
Every touch leaves your mark on me
Little things seem to haunt me now
I can't believe you've become a part of me

Stuck With You  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

There couldn't be any more anarchy if we tried
Your liberty is irony living free takin' a ride

We walk on the line of hypocrisy
We're all out of time but I don't wanna leave

Starting over today
It ain't in my head I'm stuck with you
Like glue

All the killer bees casualities everybody's paying a price
I'll pollute the sea hug a tree undercook your meat and
You'll die

In another time I almost believed
We're both out of line thinking that we're free

Bored enough of the games
It ain't in my head I'm stuck with you
Like glue

Turn Around  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I should apologize
For my new compromise
A temporary disease

Another dumb mistake
To think that you would change
Now I'm admitting defeat

Well I knew what this would mean
But still I let myself get back into it
It's time to turn around

If your not careful
She'll rip your heart out
And shove it in your mouth

Now I took all the blame
Off my little brain
And said 'the devil made me'
Put the turpentine
In her carafe of wine
And I got a reprieve

Happiness  (Live)
(Lesperance)

I hear you say I make it hard to leave
And you don't wanna stay I guess
I was thinking I still had a lot to say
While you were thinking it's all for the best
I was sure that I was gettin on with things
Now I'm in tha same old mess
I'm better now nothing left to prove
And no one there impress

Oh
It's a road we all travel
Oh no here we go again
Everything's changing
It's changing again
What's tha matter baby
It doesn't matter baby
I thought I could count on you till the end
For happiness
Happiness

I know I said I'd make it up to you
But i don't like the place I'm in
I wish that I could tell you what to do
But I wouldn't know where to begin

And when I'm all but thinking don't you come around
Another everything is all I don't need
In doing anything I'd only let you down
cause I won't be waiting

Over The Edge  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

How can I believe in
What no one ever finds
Went down the road to eden
And crawled it every mile

I wanna find the reason
That I won't light the fire
And die here from the cold

I wanna know
Will I ever find that feeling
Or am I just dreaming
I'm over the edge
Through every high and low
Denying that I feel it
Pretending I could leave it
I'm over the edge

Getting harder every season
To turn water into wine
Colors fading each year
'till they're only black and white

Sentimental BLVD.  (Live)
(Hess)

I was fooled by your devil's disguise
I've been rained on enough
Now the sun won't rise
It seems I've been wasting my time
Carrying the weight of the world
And there's no end in sight

Now there's nothing for you
And nothing for me
I'm like a worn-out soldier
Running around incomplete
What used to keep it together
Comes apart at the seams
Now I know
You can never run away too far
Cause people get lost
On Sentimental Blvd.
It's better not to wait too long
Cause feelings get lost
On Sentimental Blvd.
We get older
And wonder where the time has gone

Put your dreams and your faith on the line
They're just reflections of us
In the mirror of life
Then it feels like it's passing you by
When fear is stronger than love
It can break all the ties

If I could read your mind I'd know
(Why you keep praying resolution will come)
If you lay your heart on a million lines
You'll be wondering where the time has gone
It goes on and on

Sunshine  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

When I feel alone I need to find the energy
That I feel when I'm with you
Holding on to everything that I can reach
That I think is part of you

Over and over
When my fears have won
And I feel I'm losing you
Ooh you're making me feel
Like a day that'll never see dawn

Then sun shines
And I feel I can deal with the worst of it
It's a slow ride
And I know I'm not alone
In your sunshine

No reason to reveal the light if I don't see
When I seem obsessed with you
Reeling in elusive fish that I don't need
When it seems I needed you

It's Gotta Be  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I remember a day when swallowing and breathing
Would take up my brain and cramp it up in style
Now gone are the days of innocence and feeling
Now every new hangnail feels just like a crisis
It's gotta be
All the heavy weight I'm feeling on my shoulders
It's gotta be
A little phase I'm feeling numb again
I crusie through the day when my cereal is killer
Feed me the O's I'm cheery every time
The flakes and the frost don't mix with my demeanor
I'm meat at the plate being eatin' up in silence
I've been trying to figure out
What certifiable means
And how it relates to me
I feel like an egg that's never missed a beating
I looked away while signing on the line
If life is a lane it's moving like a dead man
Give me the speed or take away my license

Honestly  (Live)
(Hess)

I stand before you accused of many crimes
But I want to believe that love can still survive
You don't have to say it, I don't have to read your mind
To know that emptiness has finally arrived
How was I to know right from wrong
Words were hardly spoken, so where did I go wrong

Tell me honestly, if you're still loving me
Looking into my eyes honestly
Words have more meaning, if they're said at certain times
I need you now so I can feel alive
How would you know if you won't give me some time
To see if everything could work you'll be mine
I'll be lost forever or someday I may find
The words that I've been searching for or just some peace of mind

Chorus

All the nights I sit and wonder there must be more life
I'm sure that days and years go by while
I am living with, living with a lonely feeling

Slowly Slipping Away  (Live)
(Hess / Ribler)

There's a burning question in my heart
But I see the answer in your eyes
An uneasy feeling without you
There's only peace by your side

Our hearts survived the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive
I feel it in the morning
I feel it all through the day
I feel the heartache, slowly slipping away, slowly slipping away
We've had our share of confusion
We've been let down so many times before
But what I've found is a real love
No need to search anymore, no
Somehow we've weathered the storms in our lives
This love has never been a lie
We will survive the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive

Draggin' Me Down  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I know I was going up and all the way
There was never adoubt
Then you came and everything
Just turned around
Holding me down
Draggin' medown

I don't think of where
would be now
Without you pushing me
Back on theground
Every time I think I'm
Moving on
In your arms I'll be found
Holding medown
Darggin' me down
Now I think of what I've
Done that I should pay
So bad I usedto be proud
Alright another day of giving in
You know that I'm
Spinning around
Draggin Me Down

No Justice  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Freedom burns forever in the holy sun
It leads us into a battle that's never won

Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

Justice in the world
No justice in the world
You feed the fire when you say it's all over
No justice in the world
When you realize that the devil's got your number

It's your decision
To walk the mile when the road is long
It's like religion wasting our lives on a
Worthless cause
Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

When will freedom shine for us
No, it ain't over, no

Headache  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

When I retrace the lines that got me here
I find a face that's all just smoke and mirrors

We're alone living like two shadows
All in all I live in yesterday
I'm afraid it's gone

You're killing me every day
Couldn't pay me to stay
Ooooh
The enemy the anti-c
Now I know how you be

Clear the way for loneliness and fear
The idle flames been burning out for years

We're alone living like two shadows
All in all I live in yesteday
I'm afraid it's you
You're killing me every day
Couldn't pay me to stay
Ooooh
The enemy the anti-c
A headache that I don't need

Another Nail For My Heart  (Live)
(Chris Difford / Glenn Tillbrook)

The cases pulled from under the bed
She made a call to a sympathetic friend
And made arrangements
The door was closed there was a note
I couldn't be bothered
Maybe I will tell her all the engagements

For where we went and faraway grounds
Trying to be good by not being around
So in the bar the piano has found
Another nail for my heart
And in the bar the piano has found
Another nail for my heart

I had excuses those little boy lies
That she compured by watching my eyes
And told me firmly
She couldn't stand at battle of heart
She tried to make up
And now I found a bottle that concerns me
I thought about a time
My love has resigned
I visit you poured out love you divide
So in the bar the piano has found
Another nail for my heart
And in the bar the piano has found
Another nail for my heart

That should be no bug that kills our love
I want to be good inside my nuts
So play that song that makes it so tough
Another nail for my heart
So play that song that makes it so tough
Another nail for my heart
And in the bar the piano has found
Another nail for my heart
And in the bar the piano has found
Another nail for my heart

Who-Buddy  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Every time I wake I feel fine
But happiness is something I can't find

So many things that I wanted to be
My dreams undone by real life
Comfort has made me complacent
Now I'm alone with what if's

Who I'll never be is so apropos
For the coma I'm in
All I'll never do
When given it all
Don't refuse

Every day it seemed like killing time
Never took a chance or even tried

Change Comes Around  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

This is my rollercoaster
I ride it everyday
It's a mirror of my emotions
I want to wish it all away

News flash of the century
Story of the day
If you wanna see mountains crumble
You can watch it any day

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta find me a better way

Whenever the light is gone
You're not the only one
Breaking down
When all your faith is gone
Don't let it pull you under
Change comes around
Sail on to higher ground
Hiding from the thunder
I think we'd all agree
That facing fear don't help us
Escape reality

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta live with what I say

Saviors Never Cry  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

You say that I'm lost
You got the word that I'm going down
Yea, it may be true
It's like twenty-four tons of hard hitting headache
When you realize that you're coming unglued

I've sown and you've sown the seeds of youth
Time won't and I don't conceal the truth

So get up and fly away
Or forever be in doubt
You know, Saviours never cry
You're hot on the heels of hope and love
Dreams can never die
Tear down the walls you hide behind
There's just one thing in your life
That you gotta do
You wanna break on through
Don't be kind to the core
Easy to ignore
If your lips never move
You're bound to lose the war

I know and you know
There's no use
Trying to hold back the years
Making a career out of hiding the truth
A new day is born
You need to wake the dying
The hand that it's in is yours

So Blind  (Live)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Headlines detach us from the world
Throwing all compassion overboard
Like big flies circling the corpse
It's getting more disgraceful than before

What will we ride
When this horse dies
Will eat the shit and jump in

With both feet in the fire
Rubbing ignorance into our eyes
We're blind, so blind
To all the world's injustice
We're so blind

In their sick minds
They justify it all
Emotionally straying from the course
For the big prize
A hundred million whores
Raping all humanity and more
