Track Name: Behold Silver Bullet
Behold! I will meet you on neutral ground
I’m getting tired of following you around
It’s here or nowhere
It’s here or nowhere
Coat tailing really gets me down

This war has gone on long enough
I tried to make it easy but you played it far too rough
I’m cannon fodder
I’m cannon fodder
I surrender you know I’m not that tough
Track Name: Eddie Hodad (fast version)
He's the guy that we like to be stood by
He gets wired but he never gets high
He's a long-time friend of all the good bands
He's a cricket player, he's got safe hands

You say you want to be with me but
I don't know nothing about it.

He's a sausuage and a hollow grinder
He's a looker - sometimes, he's a finder
When he plays the guitar he sounds like this
He's a record keeper, he's a big kiss
Track Name: Eddie Hodad (Swing Version)
He's the guy that we like to be stood by
He gets wired but he never gets high
He's a long-time friend of all the good bands
He's a cricket player, he's got safe hands

You say you want to be with me but
I don't know nothing about it.

He's a sausuage and a hollow grinder
He's a looker - sometimes, he's a finder
When he plays the guitar he sounds like this
He's a record keeper, he's a big kiss
Track Name: The Gift
In dark lands under strange moons
With sadness by my side
On a horse with bony back
Uncomfortable to ride
Beneath a melancholy star
I traveled far and wide

That's why I give this gift to you
I swear, oh my darling, I'll be true

Have you heard the legend of
The prince with half a heart?
He gave it to his lover but
She tore it all apart
And now he's doomed to wander
While she keeps the other half

That's why I give this gift to you
I swear, oh my darling, I'll be true

And I could keep it
For my yesterday box
Or I could give it
To the one I love

How much is a promise worth
From such a man as me?
When I can only give you
What I've got half-heartedly?
A rose is only beautiful
Until it makes you bleed

That's why I give this gift to you
I swear, oh my darling, I'll be true
Track Name: The Hollies
Life's a holy song, not a Hollies song
Oh yeah

Bus stop, wet day, all I got was wet
Oh yeah
