Leave My Soul Alone
This song is taken from a session at which Hank and I had agreed to help Michael Denner's 3-piece band to record a demo. It was shortly after this session that the classic M. F. line up was completed. The music is written by Michael himself and I was given about 2 1/2 hours to come up with the lyrics. The song never made it onto an album.

Oooooooooooooooooooh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! Now hear my song
Sirenes calling, people leavin' the streets
The cops are comin', I don't know what I did

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

Oooooooooooooooooooh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! Oh hear me now
I'm running free, they won't get me alive
No one can see, I did it to survive

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

Oooooooooooooooooooh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! This is what I did
I killed a friend, for makin' love to my girl
This is the end, a bullet from my gun

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

I can't belong............. KILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This last sentence is difficult to hear. It might also be: "I can't be
alive" or something like that. Maybe you can hear it?
