Track Name: Dance on Glass
You've got to be careful of what you do
It's like dancing on glass
You're going to hurt somebody, something or other
And the feeling could last

If you move too far
It could have some sort of effect
On her
And that same effect
Could hurt you too

Every move you make, every step you take
Could be your last
Don’t hurt her, be smooth with her
Treat her just like glass

If you move too far
It could have some sort of effect
On her
And that same effect
Could hurt you too

You've got to be careful of what you do
It's like dancing on glass
You're going to hurt somebody, something or other
And the feeling could last
Track Name: Cramped
It's deep inside this lonely place
And no one here with me
I cry for help, maybe someone will hear
But no one hears my plea
Then suddenly this girl walks by
She seems to hear my call
She comes to close to the edge of the ditch
and then she starts to fall...

Oh I warned her when I called to her
But she didn't seem to hear
And now she's trapped inside with me
She's trembling with fear
Oh, who can help us now
The night's approaching soon
And the only light that pierces the dark
Is the beam of the moon...

The abyss is quickly closing in
And there's not much time to escape
There's only a few minutes
To climb out of this gape
And now it's turned into a crack
Might as well not even try
It won’t be too long, my love
Before we both shall die...
Track Name: Confessions (of a Lost Daughter)
You never gave me freedom
You never gave me love
All I wanted was to grow up
Just like you did

You never listened to my problems
You never soothed my pain
I had to stop this torture
So I ran off and hid

Why couldn't we talk about it
Why couldn't we share
Why didn’t you help me out
Why didn’t you care

And now I'm on my own
Trying to support myself
Do you know how hard it is
To live this way

Oh won’t you take me back
I feel like I'm in hell
If you say you'll take me back
This time I'll stay

Why couldn't we talk about it
Why couldn't we share
Why didn’t you help me out
Why didn’t you care
Track Name: Bars of Gold
I'm not a wealthy man to tell you the truth
But I know what I like
I like a woman that's precious as gold
Yeah, she's just my type

I'll give you a little advice
To let you know what I want

I want her
Yes, I want her
Like I want those bars of gold

I wish I had a limousine
To take me everywhere
But I'd rather have a girl like that
With the long golden hair

Now I think you get the idea
Of what I really desire

I want her
Yes, I want her
Like I want those bars of gold

You might think I'm an idiot
You think you know what's best
But let me tell you something 'bout money
It doesn't always bring happiness

I want her
Yes, I want her
Like I want those bars of gold
