"Happiness And All The Other Things" (2009)

51 Pieces lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

The O.H.I.O. S.H.P.
Had a quota to fill, that quota was me
One helluva night down at the H.O.B.
51 pieces on the side of the road

Francis Ford and Mary Jane
Mick and Keith down at the bowling lane
All was cool 'til the sun up came
51 pieces on the side of the road

[Chorus:]
Well, it never occurred to me
How ten out of ten would go free
For 51 pieces in the side of the road

[Instrumental]

The thunder rolls and the lightnin' is flashin'
Sirens scream and the cars are crashin'
I am the object of their passion
51 pieces on the side of the road

It goes to show that you never know
Swing up high, you come down low
Watch your back in Ohio
51 pieces on the side of the road

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental]

Bluebonnets lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

Hair blowin' in the wind
Wonder what you pretend you are
When you run
Bandana on your head
Your face is turning red
You throw it down to the ground
When you are done

[Chorus:]
I'll think of you
When the blue bonnets bloom
When the blue bonnets bloom
I'll think of you

You always seem to make me laugh
When you ask me 'What is that?'
A million times
And you know
Little things that you do
They are the things that get me through
When I'm up to my hips in snow

[Repeat Chorus]

Another night I'm working hard
Another night, another bar
A million miles outta touch
Say your prayers, say my name
Keep it fresh on your brain
And don't forget that I love you this much

[Repeat Chorus]

Burn Like The Sun lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

This is personal
Worse than I thought it was
Worse than it could be
Worse than a hole in me

You came with fire
And left it in me
Deep down it sits
And the fuse is lit 'til now

[Chorus:]
You can't help it
You're alive just like anyone
But you forget
I burn just like the sun

This is beautiful
More like a train wreck
And all the passin' cars
They wanna know who you are

I, suffer the season
And you are well aware
Of the reasons why

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental]

[Repeat Chorus 3x]

To Find My Love lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

There's a view from here where you can see tomorrow
And after that it's up to you
There ain't no point in tryin' to drown your sorrows
The point is they're drownin' you

And fools like us, we've got to stay together
If we're partyin' in the streets
'Cause we both know how plans can change
Quicker than a heartbeat

And I have searched the world to find my love
And I have searched my soul to find my love
And I just wanna be sure the love we share is strong and pure
And I have searched the world to find my love with you

Your still broken dream for a dime a dozen
Get a broken heart for less
You steal a poem from your second cousin
But you better get your money blessed

And fools like us, we've got to stay together
If we're partyin' in the streets
We both know how plans can change
Quicker than a heartbeat

And I have searched the world to find my love
And I have searched my soul to find my love
I just wanna be sure the love we share is strong and pure
And I have searched the world to find my love with you

There's a view from here where you can see tomorrow
And after that it's up to you
There ain't no point in tryin' to drown your sorrows
The point is they're drownin' you

And fools like us, we've got to stay together
If we're partyin' in the streets
'Cause we both know how plans can change
Quicker than a heartbeat

And I have searched the world to find my love
And I have searched my soul to find my love
And I just wanna be sure the love we share is strong and pure
I have searched the world to find my love with you

Drag lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

Blame me if you wanna blame me
Hang me if you're gonna hang me
Damn me if you're gonna damn me
Don't drag me along

What's up? I know what you're thinking
Times up, I feel this thing is sinking now
You crack up every time you're drinking
Don't drag me along
Don't drag me along

[Chorus:]
Don't drag me along
(Stop dragging me)
Stop putting me on
Don't drag me along
(Stop dragging me)
It's the same old song
Don't drag me along

And this thing, it's got its share of glitches
I feel it's headed for the ditches down
Back-talking dirty sons of bitches
Don't drag me along

And deadly, but still you try to save me
You're crazy to ever try to play me now
Lady, lady in the waiting
Don't drag me along
Don't drag me along

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental]

[Repeat Chorus 2x]

Kick In The Head lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

If I had a dime for every single time
That something was promised to me
I'd have about 235 dollars
And not a lot of wait and see
What's gonna be

Hey, I'm jaded
And I shoulda saw it coming
Frustrated
With this roller coaster, bathtub toaster
Kick in the head

It ain't hocus pocus, you got to stay focused
If you want a good delivery
Somebody once said to keep it in the red
Well, that's the only color I see
It's gettin' to me

Hey, I'm jaded
And I shoulda saw it coming
Frustrated
With this mother lovin', head in the oven
Kick in the head

I forget to mention, you got to pay attention
If you ever wanna believe
A change will do you better, keep yourself together
Sit back and let it breathe
Let it bleed

Hey, I'm jaded
And I shoulda saw it coming
Frustrated
With this pornographic, jump into traffic
Kick in the head

Hey, I'm ready and willing
To jump off the building
Kick in the head

Overtable lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

Won't you let it go
It's taken its toll
Yeah, you beat down, you choked it out
Chewed it up and spit it out
I can't take no more

[Chorus:]
Only so much I can give
Only so much you can take
Won't you please just let me live
Only so much you can break
When you see me flyin' now
Baby, please don't bring me down

Overtable look
That was all it took
It was one for the books, that overtable look
Yeah, you picked it up from the ground
Found the faintest hint of sound
I might still be here

[Repeat Chorus]

[Instrumental]

You've got reasons to cry
Baby, so do I
Even though I know they will dry
You know I care, but to be fair
This ain't going anywhere
Until you let it go

[Repeat Chorus]

When you see me flyin' now
Baby, please don't bring me down
Down

Overtable Interlude lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

I put the pedal to the metal, like a bullet through a barrel
I was halfway outta this town
The sun was sinking low, and as I watched it go where
You called me, said: Baby, won't you turn around?"
I said: Forgive me darlin', but the highway has been calling
Gonna find another town and buy some new clothes
I have to beg your pardon, but there's nothing in your garden
But a black rose
Yeah, a black rose

Well, it was fine in the beginning, but there always is an ending
And there's always a twist in the plot
That web that you've been weaving is as strong as it's deceiving
But I just ain't believing that'll get caught
I'm sure you'll find another that don't mind being smothered
By the kind of love a lover like you knows
It can only harden when it grows inside your garden
Like a black rose
Yeah, a black rose

Pretty Lady lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

Hey pretty lady in the picture with the patent leather high heels on
You've been in my heart and on my mind like you've never known
I don't know where you come from
But you hit me like an atom bomb
Pretty lady in the picture with the patent leather high hells on

Hey pretty lady on the poster with the dagger running down her neck
You've got my money, my attention and my respect
Nobody knows what you went through
You just did what you had to do
Pretty lady on the poster with the dagger running down her neck

Pretty lady
Pretty lady
Pretty lady

[Instrumental]

Hey pretty lady with the long gray hair in the limousine
You're gonna live forever on the cover and the pages of the magazines
Raven hair and milky skin
You didn't leave this world in sin
Pretty lady in the back of a long black limousine

Pretty lady
Pretty lady
Pretty lady

Tomorrow lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

What are all the people sayin'
About you and me when it went south?
I bet they're sayin' that we both went crazy
They can't shut their mouth

What the hell were we even thinkin'
To get ourselves in such a bind?
Conversation and drinkin'
It should be a crime

We can't take this for much longer
We don't need this, we've grown stronger
Tell me, baby, we can change things
Hey, hey lady what tomorrow brings

Stop all the hatin' and pretendin'
Stop the music and stop the press
This back and forth, it's never-endin'
Why don't you give it a rest?

Time gives and time is taken
Time is not the friend we thought we had
The hour's late and the clock is tickin'
It can't be that bad

We can't take this for much longer
We don't need this, we've grown stronger
Tell me, lady, we can change things
Hey, hey baby what tomorrow brings

Hey, hey everybody
Step back and take a look around
Stand up and draw back the curtain
Play it to the crowd

Hey, hey everybody
Hey, hey everybody
Hey, hey everybody

Confident lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

I'm the one under your skin
Cheap red wine and cheaper sin
I'm the one behind those eyes
Deep beneath, in between your sighs

If you're confident, I will let you in
I will let you in, if you knock again

You're the one so underground
Rooted into me somehow
You're the one that had to be
I can't seem to lift you up to me
Lift you up to me

If you're confident, I will let you in
I will let you in, we'll be born again

Come over here
I'll make you whole at night
Come over here
Your last will is your last right

If you're confident, I will let you in
I will let you in once again

If you're confident, I will let you in
I will let you in if you're confident

My Chances lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

Not so long ago, I thought I knew it all
I had the world by the hand
Every day is so off color now
I don't know where to stand

[Chorus:]
I'm lookin' for the answer
Sittin' right in front of me
Am I not ready to take my chances?
Or have my chances overtaken me?

I wish the fog would burn up in the sun
And let the light show me the way
Flip a quarter, watch it hit the ground
And leave it all up to fate

[Repeat Chorus]

That's the question that's been scratchin'
Like a cat at my door
Pretty soon it's gonna get tired of askin'
And it won't haunt me no more

I'm lookin' for the answer
It's sittin' right in front of me
Am I not willing to take my chances?
Well, my chances have overtaken me

And not so long ago, I thought I knew it all
It's comin' back to me

Carmelita lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

I hear Mariachi static on my radio
And the tubes they light up the dark
And I'm there with her in Ensenada
And I'm here in Echo Park

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well, I'm sittin' here playing solitaire
With my pearl-handled deck
The county won't give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Well, I pawned my Smith Corona
And I went to meet my man
He hangs out down on Alvarado Street
By the Pioneer chicken stand

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin
On the outskirts of town

Carmelita hold me tighter
I think I'm sinking down
And I'm all strung out on heroin

Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground (Live) lyrics - Cross Canadian Ragweed

If you had not have fallen
Then I would not have found you
Angel flying too close to the ground
And I patched up your broken wing
And hung around a while
Trying to keep your spirits up
And your fever down

I knew someday that you would fly away
For love's the greatest healer to be found
So leave me if you need to I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground

Fly on fly on past the speed of sound
I'd rather see you up than see you down
So leave me if you need to I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground

So leave me if you need to I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground
