Rick Hart Melbourne, Australia

Track Name: Driver Alone
Driver alone, I’m heading off tonight
To no place for certain, until I see some end in sight
For far too long I’ve lingered and I’ve hesitated
But no more
Driver alone, a bag for all my things
My joy, my discontent, my pain and suffering
A wallet size photo of you and I pretending we were happy back then
(Hey hey)

Will regrets be there to meet me
When I reach my destination
Will all my time be spent thinking back to when I had it all (oh)
Will regrets be there to meet me
When I reach my destination I’ll be alone

Driver alone, I pray the day will come
When I find a shoulder I can rest my worries on
Until that day I’ll breathe on in anticipation
And drive on
(Hey hey)

Will regrets be there to meet me
When I reach my destination
Will all my time be spent thinking back to when I had it all (oh)
Will regrets be there to meet me
When I reach my destination I’ll be alone

Close my eyes to drive this blinding highway
‘cause you I can’t remain, you know I can’t remain

Will regrets be there to meet me
When I reach my destination
Will all my time be spent thinking back to when I had it all (oh)
Will regrets be there to meet me
When I reach my destination I’ll be alone
Track Name: Rick Hart and The Sweet Addictions - Outta My Mind
My head is growing weary, it needs space to forget
Once filled with optimism, wilted down to regret
I’ve read through all your chapters but still don’t like the end
Through consequence, coincidence, fooled time and time again

Oh oh, everything serves to remind
(Me) of every word you said
Feels like I’m losing what’s mine
Oh oh, it’s useless in trying to rewind
Won’t stop me losing my head
Feels like I’m outta my mind

My heart has grown so heavy, it’s chained to hold me down
Once felt with such precision, now it fumbles its way around
I’ve swallowed your excuses but still don’t like the taste
Where ignorance, indifference, become so common place

Oh oh, everything serves to remind
(Me) of every word you said
Feels like I’m losing what’s mine
Oh oh, it’s useless in trying to rewind
Won’t stop me losing my head
Feels like I’m outta my mind

Oh, oh
(ooh baby, do you understand what I’m talking about)
Oh, oh
(do you understand what I’m talking)
Oh, oh
(do you understand me)
Track Name: Rick Hart and The Sweet Addictions - Bones
Women like you are forbidden fruit on the trees I like to pick
Women like you are God given proof that a dog can't learn new tricks
I’ve got some bones to pick, I've got some bones to pick

Listen up and I will try to tell you the reasons why
Your no good, lying, cheating ways ain't gonna fly

Women like you are the sucker punch men don't anticipate
Women like you are the reason why I don't put my trust in fate
And I've got some bones to pick, I've got some bones to pick

Listen up and let me try and tell you what it all means
You’re no good, and I can see through all of your god damn schemes

I've got some bones to pick
I've got some bones to pick
I've got some bones to pick
I've got some bones to pick

Listen up and I will try and tell you why it's your fault
You're no good and I can see the writing on the wall
You're no good and I can see the writing on the wall
You're no good and I can see the writing on the wall

I've got some bones to pick
I've got some bones to pick
I've got some bones to pick
I've got some bones to pick
