Track Name: Sweet Misery (Live on Radio)
the moon hanging overhead
and the vine directing me to you
Sweet Misery

I’m haunted by your sharpened teeth
But your kiss so bitter sweet
the love you give will be the death of me
Sweet Misery

poison this horse that I ride upon
and dam this trail that I walk along
my heart is bound by a vine of throne, I'm torn to you
Sweet Misery

on a endless night i dream of you
hanging by my wrists from a old barn roof
you hollowed my chest to a open wound
and it burns for you, Sweet Misery

oh haunted by your sharpened teeth
but your kiss so bitter sweet
the love you give will be the death of me

Track Name: Taking Its Toll (Live on Radio)
I got a woman, prettiest thing round
but I keep hearin' she's been sneakin' around
she sets off on the prowl...yeah
every damn time I'm outta town

I love that woman with heart n' soul
but it's taking its toll... oh no!

lord, I don’t know what I’m gonna do
cause every time I ask, she swears them lies ain't true
so am I just a jealous fool
cause when I call late at night the phone rings out

I love that girl, but heaven knows
but it's taking its toll... oh no!

well I gotta let her go
cause I saw her down town, with her high heels on
and at night when she's all alone
that midnight hour, is gonna take its toll... oh no!
