    Respect Yourself (People Stand Up)
    Lyrics

    Respect Yourself (People Stand Up)

    If you disrespect anybody that you run into
    How do you think anybody’s supposed to respect you?
    If you lay the blame and complain
    You’ll only stay the same
    It’s a whole lot of rooms in this house
    Ain’t no room for shame
     
    To my people on the front porch, front page, full of rage
    Reaching through the bars of your cage
    Now look inside cause the pride of the tribe
    Is crying for change
     
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
     
    You can move any mountain in your way
    If you believe that you can
    But if there’s blood on your hands
    It’s the sign of a desperate plan
     
    You’re gonna make a few mistakes, heads will shake
    But you know you’re ready now
    You got to start in your heart
    Do your part to turn the world around
     
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
     
    Every one of us changes
    At the speed of trust
    Now is the time, come on
    People stand up and respect yourself
    Respect yourself
     
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself
    Respect Yourself

    Who's Making Love
    Lyrics

    Who's Making Love

    All you fellows, gather 'round me
    And let me give you some good advice
    What I'm gonna, gonna ask you now
    You better think about it twice
    While you're out cheating on your woman
    There's something you never even thought of, and that is
    Who's making love to your old lady
    While you were out making love (hear me now)
    Who's making love to your old lady
    While you were out making love
    I've seen so, so many fellows
    Fall in that same old bag
    Thinking that a woman is made to,
    To be beat on and treated so bad
    Oh, fellows, let me ask you something
    I'm sure that you never even dreamed of,
    Who's making love to your old lady
    While you were out making love (hear me now)
    Who's making love to your old lady
    While you were out making love
    I know there are some women guilty of this, too
    I'm not tryin' to run your life, boy it's up to you
    Oh, you oh, you,
    Reason why I ask this question
    I used to be the same old way
    When I decided to straighten up
    I found it was a bit too late
    Oh, that's when it all happened
    Something I never, never dreamed of
    Somebody was a-lovin' my old lady
    While I was out making love
    Somebody was a-lovin' my old lady
    While I was out making love
    Now who's making love to your old lady
    While you were out making love
    (Who? Who? Your old lady) (While you were out making love)

    Lyrics

    I've Been Loving you Too Long (To Stop Now)

    I've been loving you too long to stop now
    You are tired and you want to be free
    My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit to me
    Oh, I've been loving you too long
    I don't wanna stop now
    With you my life has been so wonderful
    I can't stop now
    You are tired and your love is growing cold
    My love is growing stronger as our affair, affair grows old
    I've been loving you oh, too long
    I don't want to stop now, oh, oh, oh
    I've been loving you a little too long
    I don't wanna stop now, oh, oh, oh
    And don't make me stop now

    Any Other Way
    Lyrics

    Any Other Way

    Here you come again, you say that you're my friend
    But I know why you're here; she wants to know how I feel
    Well, you can, tell her that I'm happy, tell her that I'm okay
    Tell her I wont have it, any other way
    People have been talking, since we've been apart
    When I pass I hear them whisper, there he goes with a broken heart
    But when she ask about me, here is what you say
    Tell her I wouldn't have it, any other way
    That's all I have to say, my friend, now I think we better say goodbye
    I think you'd better go right now, or you might see me cry
    But when you see my baby, here is what you say
    Tell her I wouldn't have it, any other way
    I wouldn't have it
    No, no, no, no, no, no
    Any other way
    I can't have it any other way, baby
    People have been talking, since we've been apart
    When I pass I hear them whisper, there he goes with a broken heart
    But when she ask about me, here is what you say
    Tell her I wouldn't have it, any other way
    That's all I have to say, my friend, now I think we better say goodbye
    I think you'd better go right now, or you might see me cry
    But when you see my baby, here is what you say
    Tell her I wouldn't have it, any other way
    I wouldn't have it
    No, no, no, no, no, no
    Any other way
    I can't have it any other way, baby

    Lyrics

    I Forgot To Be Your Lover

    Have I told you lately that I love you?
    Well, if I didn't, darlin', I'm sorry!
    Did I reach out and hold you in my loving arms
    Oh, when you needed me?
    Now I realize that you need love, too
    And I'll spend my life making love to you
    Oh, I forgot to be your lover
    And I'm sorry, I'm so sorry
    Have I taken the time to share with you
    All the burden that love will fare?
    And have I done the little simple things to show you
    Just how much I care?
    Oh, I've been workin' for you doin' all I can
    To work all the time didn't make me a man
    Oh, I forgot to be your lover
    And I'm sorry, I'll make it up to you somehow, baby
    I forgot to be your lover
    Gonna make it up to you somehow
    Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, baby
    I forgot to be your lover
    If you forgive me, I'll make it up to you

    If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all
    Hard luck and trouble is my only friend

    I ain't lyin'
    If it wasn't for bad luck I wouldn't have no kind-a luck
    If it wasn't for real bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all
    Wine and women is all I crave
    A big legged woman is gonna carry me to my grave
    Born under a bad sign
    I been down since I begin to crawl

    Pulse
    Lyrics

    Pulse

    Everybody's got a pain inside
    Imaginary wounds they fight to hide
    How can I hate them
    When everybody's got a pulse
     
    I dream in a world that wants my soul
    That tells me if I hate I can control
    But I don't believe it
    I cannot conceive it because
    Everybody's got a pulse
     
    CHORUS
    I am human I am love
    And my heart beats with my blood
    Love will always win
    Underneath the skin
    Everybody's got a pulse
     
    Once again I hang my head to cry
    I can't find the reason why they died
    We will find the answer
    Blowing in the wind that
    Everybody's got a pulse
     
    CHORUS
     
    Who ya gonna hate now
    When there's no one left but you
    Who ya gonna gun down
    When you can't kill the truth
    That its inside of us
    It's inside the blood
    It's inside a pulse
     
    I am human I am love
    And my heart beats in my blood
    Love will always win
    Underneath the skin
    Everybody's got a pulse
     
    Hands up if you're alive
    Hands up if you're alive
     
    Love will always win
    Underneath the skin
    Everybody's got a pulse

    I Won't Be Alone Tonight
    Lyrics

    I Won't Be Alone Tonight

    Gonna put my boots on, pull back my hair
    There's a heartbreak in the night but I don't care
    Got to find me an angel one that's just a little mean
    In cheap sunglasses and low-rise jeans
    I've had enough of a stuffed up wall
    I'm breaking out tonight that's all
    Don't owe nobody money as far as I can recall
    I, I won't be alone tonight, the darkness will end and I won't be alone, won't be alone tonight
    There's a billion stars out in an endless sky and I won't be alone, won't be alone
    Won't be alone tonight
    Talking to the mirror working up my nerve
    I say you have much more than this than you deserve
    Lift up my head, I gotta take a little chance
    I'm gonna meet my feet, my feet can dance
    I've had enough of a one way screen
    I was and I was a cheap caffeine
    Get me a clean shirt find me the in between
    Oh, I won't be alone tonight, the darkness will end and I won't be alone, won't be alone tonight
    There's a billion stars out in an endless sky and I won't be alone, won't be alone
    Won't be alone tonight
    I make my bed and that's my choice
    I just wanna hear another human voice
    Screaming pillows and secret tears
    Every single night for a hundred million years
    But not tonight
    I, I won't be alone tonight, the darkness will end and I won't be alone, won't be alone tonight
    There's a billion stars out in an endless sky and I won't be alone, won't be alone
    Won't be alone tonight

    Take My Number
    Lyrics

    Take My Number

    Do you mind if I sit down next to you?
    Yeah, I remember you from school
    You seem to have a good heart
    Way back then, you were gonna make it big
    But it's divorce, now with a couple kids
    That brings you back to these parts
    Everybody stumbles
    Everybody hits the ground
    No use running scared
    When those changes come around
    Cause you don't know what might
    Be waiting for you tonight
    You really shouldn't drive
    You've had too much to drink
    You shouldn't be alone
    Where all you're gonna do is think
    So take my number
    Or I can take you home
    We can find a cup of coffee
    We can sit all night and talk
    There's a diner always open
    Just around the block
    So take my number
    Or I can take you home
    All those dreams
    That were gonna set us free
    What did we ever know at 23
    About what we really wanted?
    Everybody's got a fire
    That's always gonna burn
    No way to put it out
    All we ever do is learn
    And you don't know what might
    Be waiting for you tonight
    Oh, you really shouldn't drive
    You've had too much to drink
    You shouldn't be alone
    Where all you're gonna do is think
    So take my number
    Or I can take you home, yeah
    We can find a cup of coffee
    We can sit all night and talk
    There's a diner always open
    Just around the block
    So take my number
    Or I can take you home
    Take you home
    Take you home
    Take you home
    I can take you home
    Do you mind if I sit down next to you?
    Well, I remember you from school
    You seem to have a real good heart
    Oh, you really shouldn't drive
    You've had too much to drink
    You shouldn't be alone
    Where all you're gonna do is think
    So take my number
    Or I can take you home
    We can find a cup of coffee
    We can sit all night and talk
    There's a diner always open
    Just around the block
    So take my number
    Or I can take you home
    Take my number
    Or I can take you home

    A Little Hard Hearted
    Lyrics

    A Little Hard Hearted

    We were playing house,
    Just playing make believe
    That you and I in love
    Is all we really need.
    How could I have known
    That every feeling swallowed inside
    Would just keep glowing,
    Never knowing that it would someday blow in.
    Then it was over just like it started.
    A little more lonely
    And a little hard hearted.
    The looking glass shattered
    Everyone departed
    A little more lonely
    And a little hard hearted.
    Oooooo
    Broken dreams and shattered glass
    Late night screams and busted handles
    We tried to hide the past
    Settled for the lies
    And the dirty scandals
    How could I have known
    The promises would fade now
    Turned to stone and fall away
    Just fall away.
    Then it was over
    Just like it started
    A little more lonely
    And a little hard hearted
    Yeah
    The looking glass shattered
    Everyone departed
    A little more lonely
    And a little hard hearted
    Oooohh
    I don't want to be hard hearted
    Nooooo
    I dont want to be hard hearted
    And it was over
    Just like it started
    A little more lonely
    And a little hard hearted
    The looking glass shattered
    Everyone departed
    A little more lonely
    A little hard hearted

    Do It Again
    Lyrics

    Do It Again

    Walked your fire I got a little bit burnt
    Hold on tight cause I, I never did learn
    You were the one they tried to warn me about
    I jumped into your ocean knowing I could never get out
    
    Oh baby it hurts, hurts to be in love
    Oh baby it hurts but I do it just because
    I walk straight through your mountain
    Crawl right under your sea
    And if you don’t know, know it by now
    You’re the only one who does this to me
    But I’d do it again
    Yes I’d do it again
    
    Even when I’m tired and my feelings are hurt
    Never lost desire only made things worse
    I hope I’m holding out for something good
    Cause we’re that combination yeah we’re the kind that could
    
    Oh baby it hurts, hurts to be in love
    Oh baby it hurts but I do it just because
    I walk straight through your mountain
    Crawl right under your sea
    And if you don’t know, know it by now
    You’re the only one who does this to me
    But I’d do it again
    Yes I’d do it again
    
    LOVE
    That’s my drug
    It goes so deep when I’m in love
    LOVE
    That’s my drug
    I walk straight through your mountain, straight through your mountain
    Crawl right under your sea, under your sea
    And if you don’t know, know it by now, you don’t know this by now
    You’re the only one who does this to me, nobody does this to me
    But I’d do it again
    Yes I’d do it again
    And again...again

    Lyrics

    Monster

    They’ve been calling me the monster
    Ever since the day I was born
    Never saying huh, don’t hurt no-one
    Each and every Sunday morn
    I rise so strong is that so wrong
    I don’t mean to devastate
    They say
    
    Here come the monster everybody run
    Shouting out loud and beating that drum
    I’m gigantic, titanic I might cause a panic
    Ready or not baby here I come
    
    I am a monster
    Full of desire full of love
    I am a monster
    The one that everyone is so afraid of
    
    They been screaming at the monster
    Since they got the fire inside
    Every little mistake such a little twist makes
    Nobody is satisfied
    I rise so strong is that so wrong
    I don’t mean to devastate
    They say
    
    Here come the monster everybody run
    Shouting out loud and beating that drum

    The one that everyone is so afraid of

    Full of desire full of love
    I am a monster
    The one that everyone is so afraid of [repeat]

    Like A Preacher
    Lyrics

    Like A Preacher

    Are you lying there on the cold dark ground
    Your skin and bones are bare you stare without a sound
    What is it in your mind that lights the fuse this time
    What do you want so bad that you have never had
    
    Could it be dangerous to light the flame and just
    Feel the warmth again make it rise again
    Remember your last time you tried to let it in
    It scorched the walls, torched the halls
    And then it melted your skin
    
    Like a preacher save you from the fire
    I won’t let you burn
    Like a preacher gonna lift you higher
    I won’t let you burn
    
    Oh I won’t let you burn
    
    The feelings you repress the thoughts you don’t confess
    They grow inside the dark make ashes of your heart
    You recklessly adore the idols keeping score
    But no-one ever wins they just start the game again
    You chose the cross you bare and pick the chains you wear
    Your heavens in your mind your hells a valentine
    Come closer now express this longing so divine
    On your knees be blessed let it possess you one more time
    
    I am a sermoniser, an on the street evangeliser
    Virtuous and sanctified
    You innocence is glorified there’s a part that’s incomplete
    Your hungering is so discrete
    Take this now for it’s my body a little death can be so godly
    
    Like a preacher save you from the fire
    I won’t let you burn I’ll save you
    Come come
    Come follow me to the deep inside
    Where heaven is love is alive
    Come follow me to the deep inside
    Where heaven is love is alive

    Lyrics

    Stranger Road

    Take the road to Tonganoxie, just before sun catcher lake
    Go past the cemetery oh child please don’t make me wait
    Cause there’s something wrong with what I’ve done
    I haven’t got much time
    I can’t stay in Kansas I’ve gotta cross the line
    
    So take me down to the Missouri on the way to Arkansas
    The devil’s in a hurry to see what my mamma saw
    Now I’m on the run I’ve got no other place to go
    Except down the stranger road
    
    I walked straight out the back door I covered up my tracks
    My poppa thinks it’s criminal so I ain’t coming back
    Cause there’s something wrong with what I’ve done
    I haven’t got much time
    And what I want and what I need
    Is all I have in mind
    
    So take me down to the Missouri on the way to Arkansas
    The devil’s in a hurry to see what my mamma saw
    Now I’m on the run I’ve got no other place to go
    Except down the stranger road
    
    Come on come on come on come on
    The blood runs hot but the eyes are cold
    Driving down the stranger road
    Ohhhh The blood runs hot oh but the eyes are cold
    Driving down to hell stranger road
    
    So take me down to the Missouri on the way to Arkansas
    The devil’s in a hurry to see what my mamma saw
    Now I’m on the run I’ve got no other place to go
    Except down the stranger road
    
    Except down to stranger road
    Come on come on come on come on
    Come on come on come on come on

    A Little Bit Of Me
    Lyrics

    A Little Bit Of Me

    If you believed, if you tried
    It could be enough to know you were alive
    If you knew the truth it couldn’t be denied
    It would change the world enough that you might find
    
    That the world goes round and around and around
    And everybody walks on common ground
    We gotta pull together if we’re gonna pull through
    There’s a little bit of me in a little bit of you
    The world goes round and around and round
    Everybody feels a little upside down
    No need to be afraid of anybody you see
    There’s a little bit of you in a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah in a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah..... Nah nah
    
    Is it on the skin is it in the love
    The things about each other that we’re so scared of
    You can shake your head you can change your mind
    Either way you wake up inside yourself to find
    
    That the world goes round and around and around
    And everybody walks on common ground
    We gotta pull together if we’re gonna pull through
    There’s a little bit of me in a little bit of you
    The world goes round and around and round
    Everybody feels a little upside down
    No need to be afraid of anybody you see
    There’s a little bit of you in a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah in a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah..... Nah nah
    
    Oh.... lean to your left or lean to your right
    The corner of the room and every soul here tonight
    Have a little bit of faith everyone will see
    That all the good books in the world agree
    There’s a little bit of you in a little bit of me
    
    And the world goes round and around and around
    And everybody walks on common ground
    No need to be afraid of anybody you see
    There’s a little bit of you oh in a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
    In a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
    In just a little bit of me
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
    Oh there’s a little bit of you in a little bit of me, in a little bit of me
    Come on we’re gonna walk on common ground
    Just a little bit of me

    Lyrics

    Who Are You Waiting For

    I did not fall when you found me I was face down
    My confidence small pushed off the merry go round
    Wishes and horses and all the kings’ men
    Could not put my heart back together again
    I’m through with love isn’t it clear my friend
    
    You said
    Who are you waiting for
    You said
    Who are you waiting for
    
    Broken again shards of the years that I lost stuck in my skin
    And the scares the least of the cost
    It’s obvious now that I’m damaged goods
    Can’t seem to find love don’t know if I could
    
    You said
    You are not wrong just misunderstood
    
    You said
    Who are you waiting for
    hmmmm
    Who are you waiting for
    
    Now touch me my dear feel the surprise
    Give me your hand open your eyes
    Waiting for, who are you waiting for
    
    I stand in the aisle I think that I’ve always known
    There in your smile I don’t have to go this alone
    Here I am come to me now
    Lets tell all the world I’ve found you
    And how I’ve been waiting for...... yes
    Who are you waiting for, who are you waiting for
    who are you waiting for
    
    Wherever you go I will go to
    Wherever you stay I’ll stay with you
    To honour and cherish from this day on
    My partner in life, my lover my one I’ve been waiting for
    I’ve been, I’ve been waiting for you

    Uprising Of Love

    My eyes are wide-open recognizing change
    It feeds the fires of the fear
    Where human love seems strange
    I'm gonna rise above
    I believe that love is love
    I'm gonna raise my hands
    With every woman, child and man
    
    I'm gonna start an uprising
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    
    There's no need for hiding
    And there's no need for shame
    Come into the sun, tell everyone
    Love has a face it has a name
    I'm gonna rise above
    I believe that love is love
    I'm gonna raise my hands
    With every woman, child and man
    
    I'm gonna start an uprising
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    
    A sacred force created me
    In that I had no choice
    Gave me my heart and who it loves
    My arms to hold and gave me my voice
    
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love
    I'm gonna start an uprising of love

    Kansas City
    Lyrics

    Kansas City

    I got my old man's Delta 88
    The window's cracked,I'm on the interstate
    Just 100 miles to go on a half a tank of gasoline.
    Lucky charms and tic-tacs, and mom's amphetamines.
    
    100 miles to go to Kansas City
    February makes me kind of crazy
    100 miles to go to Kansas City
    Will you still be calling me your baby?
    
    I met a man in a diner outside of Hays
    he said marriage brought him there,
    it was divorce that made him stay.
    I drove straight through to junction city
    I thought I'd call you in Topeka, but I didn't want the pity.
    
    100 miles to go to Kansas City
    February makes me kind of crazy
    100 miles to go to Kansas City
    Will you still be calling me your baby?
    
    Feels like I've been thrown into the slammer
    With a back end of a hammer
    Drawn over my strings
    Living became needing
    My crying became bleeding
    And now I am only dreaming.
    
    100 miles to go to kansas city
    February makes me kind of crazy
    100 miles to go to kansas city
    Will you still be calling me your baby?
    
    Oh will you still be calling me

    4th Street Feeling

    Well I've been, been thinking
    There's something I'm not talking about
    The whispers have found me
    Inside the shadows of my doubts
    I get the feeling that everything I'm doing now
    I'm doing wrong and everybody's known all along
    So take me away
    Way back to that 4th street feeling now
    When everything I had I could fit into my Chevrolet
    
    Well I've been I've been aching
    To slip an eight track on again
    Eyes closed and head back
    The sweet smell of summer sin
    I get the feeling that everything I'm doing now
    I'm just doing wrong and everybody's known all along
    
    So take me away
    Way back to that 4th street feeling now
    When everything I had could fit into my Chevrolet
    It was perfect and strange
    Living life with that 4th street feeling now
    Who am I to think I could just run away
    I could just run away,
    Baby, I could just run away.
    
    But everybody's known all along
    So take me away
    Way back to that 4th street feeling now
    When everything I had I could fit into my Chevrolet
    It was perfect and strange
    Living life with that 4th street feeling now
    Who am I to think I could just run away
    Who am I to think I could ever run away
    Who am I to think I could just run away
    Way back to that 4th street feeling now

    Falling Up
    Lyrics

    Falling Up

    I sent a picture to my very best friend
    And in the picture was me and my car
    At another dead end
    If you wanna and come and find me
    I can leave you a sign
    My heart's a little heavy but the rest of me is, well
    Fine all fine
    
    So here's to me let's raise a cup
    I'm fancy free and I'm falling
    Falling, I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now, I'm falling up now
    
    I get the picture of reapin' what I sow
    It's getting' clearer that all that I love
    Is all that I know
    
    So here's to me let's raise a cup
    I'm fancy free and I'm falling
    Falling, I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now, I'm falling up now
    
    Every now and then it gets too dark to see
    Too dark to see just what's in front of me
    Every now and then I fall off the edge
    Right off the ledge heels over head
    Am I givin' in if I'm trying
    Am I really falling or flying
    Am I really living or dying
    Am I really falling, falling or flying
    
    I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now
    
    Come on send me a picture
    Of everywhere that you've been
    And then honey, come on, come on, come on
    And shake it like a Polaroid

    Lyrics

    Shout Now

    I've been silent for much too long
    Now I'm telling everybody what's been going on
    It's time to shout now it's time to scream
    It's time to wake up from this bad dream
    
    I'm gonna shout till the devil gets on his knees
    Shout till the angels say pretty please
    Shout till I feel it runnin' through my veins
    Shout till everybody thinks I'm insane
    I'm gonna shout now, oh
    I'm gonna shout now, oh
    I wanna wake up
    
    I've been broken and I've been bruised
    I've been lied to and I've been used
    It's time for dignity it's time for pride
    It's time to get out what's been brewing on the inside
    
    I'm gonna shout till the devil gets on his knees
    Shout till the angels say pretty please
    Shout till I feel it runnin' through my veins
    Shout till everybody thinks I'm insane
    I'm gonna shout now, oh
    I'm gonna shout now, oh
    I wanna wake up
    
    I'm gonna shout till the devil gets on his knees
    Shout till my angels say pretty pretty please
    Shout till I feel it runnin' through my veins

    The Shadow Of A Black Crow
    Lyrics

    The Shadow Of A Black Crow

    I am levitating somewhere down the road
    With a price on my head and the shadow of a black crow
    He's been on my tail for close to three days
    Just a little souvenir of my wicked ways
    
    I would rather die fast than to ever live slow
    Father forgive me what my mother don't know
    The scratch marks on my soul
    From the shadow of a black crow
    
    I've got a box of reds and a bottle of the blues
    Comes a time in your life honey you've gotta choose
    My belly's on fire from the acid of the truth
    All the untold lies of my misspent youth
    
    I would rather die fast than to ever live slow
    Father forgive me what my mother don't know
    The scratch marks on my soul
    From the shadow of a black crow
    
    It's pretty when you're young just a pity when you're old, yeah
    Am I running away or am I closer to home
    The lines and the signs and the miles go by
    No one ever bothered to even ask me why
    So I am disappearing into this road
    With a six pack of sorrow and the shadow of a black crow
    
    I would rather die fast than to ever live slow
    Father forgive me what my mother don't know
    The scratch marks on my soul
    From the shadow of a black crow

    Be Real
    Lyrics

    Be Real

    Why can't you be real
    You hide the way you feel
    You can't manufacture me
    Cause I like it naturally
    Why can't you be true
    Why can't you be you
    Stop all your suffering
    And do your natural thing
    
    Do you think you're fooling anybody
    Your mind is in some kind of control
    Your soul isn't inside the body
    Your body is inside the soul
    
    Why can't you be cool
    You're acting like a fool
    You sold your soul for fame, fame, fame,
    Me I like the natural game
    
    Do you think you're fooling anybody
    You are in some kind of control
    I've seen you on the ledge pushed over the edge
    Like it was some kind of goal
    
    Never mind, never mind
    I will be fine I will be fine
    
    Never mind, never mind
    I will be fine I will be fine
    
    Never mind, never mind
    I will be fine I will be fine

    A Disaster
    Lyrics

    A Disaster

    The lies upon your lips
    The anger in your hair
    Nuclear fingertips
    Annihilating stare
    It seems wherever you go you can't help but to explode
    And your demon's screaming out of control
    
    Say good-bye to the enemy
    Go find another master
    Say good-bye to the best of me and
    Call it a disaster
    Call it a disaster
    Call it a catastrophe
    
    Your intention is clear
    It's set to self-destruct
    You and your genocidal fear
    Me and my dumb luck
    Parasitical fascination
    With hysteric insinuation
    Honestly it scorches my soul
    
    Say good-bye to the enemy
    Go find another master
    Say good-bye to the best of me and
    Call it a disaster
    Call it a disaster
    Call it a catastrophe
    
    Move on move on
    There's nothing here for you to see
    Move on move on
    I'm just another casualty
    Say goodbye to the rest of me
    You couldn't kill me faster
    
    Say good-bye to the enemy
    Go find another master
    Say good-bye to the best of me and
    Call it a disaster
    Call it a disaster
    Call it a catastrophe

    Sympathy
    Lyrics

    Sympathy

    There's a liar in your bed
    And there's a shotgun to your head
    You can't breathe but you can smoke
    You can't cry but you can joke about it
    You can drink yourself to chills
    You can hide your little pills
    As your life slowly explodes
    You can believe nobody knows about it
    Do you think that you're the only one
    Who's losing their minds
    Keeping it together
    Is everyone's favorite pastime
    
    Everybody's had some really, really bad
    Some this has got to be the end
    I would really like to try for you
    Sit around and cry for you
    Muster up some sympathy
    Well that's too much to ask of me
    
    You try so hard to be discreet
    With all your secrets in the sheets
    As you solemnly refuse
    The very spark that lights your fuse
    Do you think that you're the only one
    Who can be unkind
    Tearing at each other's flesh
    Is everyone's favorite pastime
    
    Everybody's had some really, really bad
    Some this has got to be the end
    I would really like to try for you
    Sit around and cry for you
    Muster up some sympathy
    Well that's too much to ask of me
    
    Have some have some sympathy now
    Have some sympathy now
    
    Everybody's had some really, really bad
    Some this has got to be the end
    I would really like to try for you
    Sit around and cry for you
    Muster up some sympathy
    Well that's too much to ask of me

    Enough Rain
    Lyrics

    Enough Rain

    Haven't you had enough rain
    Have you been drowning in your favorite pain
    Don't go back to sleep stay awake here with me
    Haven't you had enough rain
    
    Where are you going
    When there's nowhere to run and nothing to hide
    Who are you fooling
    The fear that surrounds you comes from inside
    
    Haven't you had enough rain
    Have you been drowning in your favorite pain
    Don't go back to sleep stay awake here with me
    Haven't you had enough rain
    
    Are you believing
    That someday is over and dreams are all gone
    Come on believe me
    Life is a voice and you are the song
    Honey, come on
    
    Don't let go keep breathing
    You can hold on
    The sky will stop bleeding
    Just like the pain
    Haven't you had enough rain
    
    Haven't you had enough rain
    Have you been drowning in your favorite pain
    Don't go back to sleep stay awake here with me
    Haven't you had enough rain

    A Sacred Heart
    Lyrics

    A Sacred Heart

    I am a fallen angel
    I am a sacred heart
    
    I am awake and I am alive
    Some say that I've won
    Some say I survived
    An angel vigilante others might proclaim
    But as I breathe I will not be a pawn, a piece in anyone's game
    
    I am a fallen angel
    I am a sacred heart
    
    I am invincible and I am divine
    Yeah, I could be a beauty with a little bit of shine
    Maybe the patron saint of rage with black market eyes
    Well, I've looked into the face of fear
    I know what I'm doing here
    Watch me fly
    
    A coward or a monster
    A puppet or a slave
    I make my own choice
    And I will never, I will not, I will never behave
    
    When did I begin the soldier's journey
    When did I begin the fight
    Fighting to believe what they had told me
    Fighting to believe the lie
    That I had to serve somebody
    I never had to serve somebody
    
    I am a sacred heart, I am a fallen angel
    I am a sacred heart, I am a savage fire
    Deep inside, deep inside the icy, the icy dark
    I am a sacred heart, a sacred heart
    A fallen angel, and I am, I am a sacred heart

    Lyrics

    I Can't Wait

    I know that you're trembling
    Despite your disguise
    Your world is on fire I can see it in your eyes
    Those spirits are hungry oh they feast on your fear
    They're howling and screaming I can feel them so near
    I will stay right here
    
    I can wait, I won't change
    I won't fade from the dark and strange
    Feel the moon get to know the stars
    I know it's not easy honey
    
    It can seem so hard when your demons have found you
    Oh they drag you through hell
    Don't pay your attention to the stories they tell
    Don't get me wrong now honey, I know it's severe
    Just give me a smile now baby let me whisper in your ear
    I will stay right here
    
    I can wait, I won't change
    I won't fade from the dark and strange
    Feel the moon get to know the stars
    I know it's not easy honey
    
    You will find what you are looking for
    And this work is never done
    There are no judgments only open doors
    The choice is yours
    You can't get it wrong, no.
    
    I can wait oh yeah.
    I will stay right here
    
    I can wait, I won't change
    I won't fade from the dark and strange
    Feel the moon get to know the stars
    I know it's not easy honey
    
    Oh but I can wait, I can wait.
    I will stay right here.

    You Will

    Looking down life's long road
    Thinking you've got so far to go
    Kickin' over tricycles getting to your bicycles
    Hittin' up the kick stand look Mama no hands
    They tell you two and two make four
    But you know life is so much more
    You keep hearing no but you're ready for the show
    
    If you think you'll never make it you will
    If you think you're gonna break it you will
    The journey is on and if you don't know the song
    You will you will you will
    
    Time is just a slinky toy
    Rolling down the stairs for joy
    Everybody gets there this I know
    Honey you can take it slow
    
    If you think you'll never make it you will
    If you think you're gonna break it you will
    The journey is on and if you don't know the song
    You will you will you will
    
    You are what you believe
    And if you believe
    Then you will see
    
    Lookin' down life's long road
    Your dreams will show you which way to go
    And if you meet a mountain move it to the side
    Climb it to the top you can take it for a ride
    You will, you will, you will, you will
    
    And if you don't know just how much I love you
    And if you don't know all I will do for you
    If you don't know just how for I'm gonna go
    You will you will you will

    The Beating Of Your Heart
    Lyrics

    The Beating Of Your Heart

    Seeking love I found a fire
    A living fire coursing through my veins
    I had arrived where I had started
    Wishing I could do it all again
    
    The beating of your heart
    Should hurt no one
    And love can only make you stronger
    
    Closing my eyes I see the window
    Across the wire I hear a laugh
    You were broke I couldn't fix you
    Now where is my army that cut you in half
    
    The beating of your heart
    Should hurt no one
    And love can only make you stronger
    
    And I can't take it any longer
    I am just beginning to understand this truth
    
    That you can't stop the wheel
    Yeah, it just keeps on turning
    And if you start a fire
    You must endure the burning
    
    The beating of your heart
    The beating of your heart
    The beating of your heart
    Should hurt no one
    
    The beating of your heart
    Should hurt no one
    And love can only make you stronger

    Change The World
    Lyrics

    Change The World

    I do not believe that my life is accidental
    There is no such thing in my world as coincidental
    I have the power, heaven knows I've got the soul
    With a rein on my intentions
    I have all the control
    
    I will change the world for you
    I will change the world for you
    
    It's non-denominational, the spirit in your smile
    The key of love is unconditional so make it last a while
    I have the power heaven knows I've got the soul
    I am in control
    
    I will change the world
    
    We are just a story
    That comes true as it's told
    Love in all its glory
    Around as it unfolds
    I choose to believe in you
    Hold me in your arms
    Take me in as the planet spins
    Let me in your heart
    
    I will change the world
    For you will change the world
    I will change the world
    I can change the world
    You and I can change the world
    We can change the world
    You and I will change, change, change,
    Change, change the world

    Falling Up
    Lyrics

    Falling Up

    I sent a picture to my very best friend
    And in the picture was me and my car
    At another dead end
    If you wanna and come and find me
    I can leave you a sign
    My heart's a little heavy but the rest of me is, well
    Fine all fine
    
    So here's to me let's raise a cup
    I'm fancy free and I'm falling
    Falling, I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now, I'm falling up now
    
    I get the picture of reapin' what I sow
    It's getting' clearer that all that I love
    Is all that I know
    
    So here's to me let's raise a cup
    I'm fancy free and I'm falling
    Falling, I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now, I'm falling up now
    
    Every now and then it gets too dark to see
    Too dark to see just what's in front of me
    Every now and then I fall off the edge
    Right off the ledge heels over head
    Am I givin' in if I'm trying
    Am I really falling or flying
    Am I really living or dying
    Am I really falling, falling or flying
    
    I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now
    I'm falling up now
    
    Come on send me a picture
    Of everywhere that you've been
    And then honey, come on, come on, come on
    And shake it like a Polaroid

    Lyrics

    I Want To Come Over

    I know you're home
    You left your light on
    You know I'm here
    The night is thin
    I know you're alone
    I watched the car leave
    Your lover is gone
    Let me in
    
    Open your back door
    I just need to touch you once more
    
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over
    
    I know your friend
    You told her about me
    She filled you with fear
    Some kind of sin
    How can you turn
    Denying the fire
    Lover I burn
    Let me in
    
    Open your back door
    I just need to touch you once more
    
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over
    
    I know you're confused
    I know that you're shaken
    You think we'll be lost
    Once we begin
    I know you're weak
    I know that you want me
    Lover don't speak
    Let me in
    
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over

    Fearless Love
    Lyrics

    Fearless Love

    When I woke up I was 17
    You kissed my lips in a bad bad dream
    Showed me things aren't what they appear to be
    Called me angel and set me free
    You gave me life in the cold cold dark
    But you ran away in the mornings spark
    Made me think that reality
    Is not where I want to be
    
    I am what I am and
    I am what I am afraid of
    Oh what am I afraid of
    I need a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    If you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness
    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less
    
    I've walked my path had worlds collide
    I lost my way and I fooled my pride
    This lover's ache wouldn't feel so strange
    If I could only change
    
    But I am what I am and
    I am what I am afraid of
    So what am I afraid of
    I need a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    If you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness
    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less
    
    Now I'm not here to lay the blame
    I understand when you hold a flame
    Heads will shake heads will turn
    And sometimes you just get burned

    I'm The Only One
    Lyrics

    I'm The Only One

    Please baby can't you see
    My mind's a burnin' hell
    I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
    My heart apart as well
    Tonight you told me
    That you ache for something new
    And some other woman is lookin' like something
    That might be good for you
    
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    
    Please baby can't you see
    I'm trying to explain
    I've been here before and I'm locking the door
    And I'm not going back again
    Her eyes and arms and skin won't make
    it go away
    You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
    That holds you down today
    
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one

    I Need To Wake Up
    Lyrics

    I Need To Wake Up

    Have I been sleeping?
    I've been so still
    Afraid of crumbling
    Have I been careless?
    Dismissing all the distant rumblings
    Take me where I am supposed to be
    To comprehend the things that I can't see
    'Cause I need to move
    I need to wake up
    I need to change
    I need to shake up
    I need to speak out
    Something's got to break up
    I've been asleep
    And I need to wake up
    Now
    And as a child
    I danced like it was 1999
    My dreams were wild
    The promise of this new world
    Would be mine
    Now I am throwing off the carelessness of youth
    To listen to an inconvenient truth
    That I need to move
    I need to wake up
    I need to change
    I need to shake up
    I need to speak out
    Something's got to break up
    I've been asleep
    And I need to wake up
    Now
    I am not an island
    I am not alone
    I am my intentions
    Trapped here in this flesh and bone
    And I need to move
    I need to wake up
    I need to change
    I need to shake up
    I need to speak out
    Something's got to break up
    I've been asleep
    And I need to wake up
    Now
    I want to change
    I need to shake up
    I need to speak out
    Oh, something's got to break up
    I've been asleep
    And I need to wake up
    Now

    Bring Me Some Water
    Lyrics

    Bring Me Some Water

    Tonight I feel so weak
    But all in love is fair
    I turn the other cheek
    And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air
    And I know you're only human
    And I haven't got talking room
    But tonight while I'm making excuses
    Some other woman is making love to you
    
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet Devil's got my soul
    
    When will this aching pass
    When will this night be through
    I want to hear the breaking glass
    I only feel the steel of the red hot truth
    And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
    I need some insanity that temporary kind
    Tell me how will I ever be the same
    When I know that woman is whispering your name
    
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet Devil's got my soul
    
    Oh, the Devil's got my soul
    
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet Devil's got my soul

    Come To My Window
    Lyrics

    Come To My Window

    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light
    of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    
    I would dial the numbers
    Just to listen to your breath
    I would stand inside my hell
    And hold the hand of death
    You don't know how far I'd go
    To ease this precious ache
    You don't know how much I'd give
    Or how much I can take
    
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light
    of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    
    Keeping my eyes open
    I cannot afford to sleep
    Giving away promises
    I know that I can't keep
    Nothing fills the blackness
    That has seeped into my chest
    I need you in my blood
    I am forsaking all the rest
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you
    
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light
    of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    
    I don't care what they think
    I don't care what they say
    What do they know about this
    love anyway
    
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light
    of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon

    Ain't It Heavy
    Lyrics

    Ain't It Heavy

    Sometimes I know that it's never enough
    Survival is fine but satisfaction is rough
    I try with an angel tonight
    Spread these wings and I'm on for the ride
    Cruise these streets where my innocence hides
    There's some things you can't deny
    What is it about this human condition
    I need some kind of promise
    Some kind of submission tonight
    
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    
    I'm feelin' kinda loose I'm feelin' kinda mean
    I've been feeling kinda wild since I turned seventeen
    Or is it madness
    Tell me where can a woman find any kind of peace
    When does the fury and the agony cease
    How long have I got to say please
    There's a hole in my jeans I only wanted to fade
    I've been ripping out seams
    Somebody else made tonight
    
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy

    Similar Features
    Lyrics

    Similar Features

    Go on and close your eyes go on imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes it shouldn't bother you
    
    You never had to wait for nothing in your life
    I guess wanting me must have been a steel blue knife
    And when night after night the scent of passion would linger
    You had to have the jewels wrapped around your finger
    Now you keep running down the road in your midnight state of mind
    Curiosity kills if you can't read the signs
    
    Go on and close your eyes go on imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes it shouldn't bother you
    
    Dancing with the wall made you bitter and sweet
    There ain't much you can do when they just lay it at your feet
    But you could tell by the song I wanted to be the one
    Did you listen again when the damage was done
    Now the paint's still wet in your do-it-by-number dream
    Are you gonna tell me how it felt, will you tell me what it means
    
    Go on and close your eyes go on imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes it shouldn't bother you
    
    Was it want with no desire
    Was it smoke with no fire
    Did I say it doesn't rip me apart I lied
    I'm sorry dear my hands are tied
    
    Go on and close your eyes go on imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes it shouldn't bother you

    Like The Way I Do
    Lyrics

    Like The Way I Do

    Is it so hard to satisfy your senses
    You found out to love me you have to climb some fences
    Scratching and crawling along the floor to touch you
    And just when it feels right you say you found someone else to hold you
    Does she like i do
    
    Tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do
    
    Can I survive all the implications
    Even if I tried could you be less than an addiction
    Don't you think I know there's so many others
    Who would beg steal and lie fight kill and die
    Just to hold you hold you like I do
    
    Tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do
    
    Nobody loves you like the way I do
    Nobody wants you like the way I do
    Nobody needs you like the way I do
    Nobody aches nobody aches just to hold you
    Like the way I do
    
    Tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do

    No Souvenirs
    Lyrics

    No Souvenirs

    Hello, hello this is Romeo
    Calling from a jackpot telephone
    Shame, shame but I love your name
    And the way you make the buffalo roam
    Oh fly, fly I guess this is goodbye
    Oh you packed up your heart
    And you left no souvenirs
    
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    
    Once, twice I thought it might be nice
    To come into your kitchen and play
    Cool, cool just a crazy fool
    I never saw it any other way
    Oh wait, wait I guess I'm just too late
    Oh you made up your mind
    Love shouldn't be so hard
    
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    
    No shirts, no shoes
    No jackets, no blues
    You car's for sale
    You forward your mail
    You're growing your hair
    You don't want to know where
    I'm calling you from
    Or how come
    
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs

    If I Wanted To
    Lyrics

    If I Wanted To

    If I wanted to I could do anything right
    I could dance with the devil on a
    Saturday night
    If I wanted to I could turn matches to gold
    I could smoke drink swear and I would never
    grow old
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    If I only wanted to
    
    If I wanted to I could run fast as a train
    Be as sharp as a needle that's twisting your brain
    If I wanted to I could turn mountains to sand
    Have political leaders in the palm of my hand
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    If I only wanted to
    
    I could leave tonight
    And I would be all right
    Stop holding on
    If I wanted to
    If I only wanted to
    
    If I wanted to I could be as patient as death
    Fix this hole in my heart leaking into my flesh
    If I wanted to I could turn sparks into ice
    There'd never be another woman who could make you
    think twice
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    If I only wanted to

    Fealess Love
    Lyrics

    Fealess Love

    When I woke up I was 17
    You kissed my lips in a bad bad dream
    Showed me things aren't what they appear to be
    Called me angel and set me free
    You gave me life in the cold cold dark
    But you ran away in the mornings spark
    Made me think that reality
    Is not where I want to be
    
    I am what I am and
    I am what I am afraid of
    Oh what am I afraid of
    I need a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    If you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness
    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less
    
    I've walked my path had worlds collide
    I lost my way and I fooled my pride
    This lover's ache wouldn't feel so strange
    If I could only change
    
    But I am what I am and
    I am what I am afraid of
    So what am I afraid of
    I need a fearless love
    Don't need to fear the end
    If you can't hold me now
    You will never hold me again
    I want to live my life
    Pursuing all my happiness
    I want a fearless love
    I won't settle for anything less
    
    Now I'm not here to lay the blame
    I understand when you hold a flame
    Heads will shake heads will turn
    And sometimes you just get burned

    The Wanting Of You
    Lyrics

    The Wanting Of You

    She's got her sweet children
    She's got her home she's got some land
    Her earthly possessions
    She's got a ring upon her hand
    She tried to be a good girl
    She tried to make everything right
    She tried to kill the voices
    That haunt her each and every night
    
    She looks up to heaven
    And wonders why love is so cruel
    She loves him won't hurt him
    Can't stop the wanting of you
    
    She married in high school
    Oldest was well upon her way
    But that wild night Chicago
    It's left a mark she can't erase
    A phase you'll just get over
    That's what her friends have always said
    
    You dip your toes in water
    She's in way over her head
    
    She looks up to heaven
    And wonders why love is so cruel
    She loves him won't hurt him
    Can't stop the wanting of you
    
    Keeping her desire paralyzed
    She catches in the corner of her eyes
    Tank top, smooth skin, soft lips, tanned thighs
    How the hell's this ache ever gonna die
    And we make our choices
    Doing what wee think is good
    We deny our own dreams
    'Cause we think we've been told we should
    We think we've been told we should
    
    She looks up to heaven
    And wonders why love is so cruel
    She loves him won't hurt him
    Can't stop the wanting of you

    Company
    Lyrics

    Company

    If you ask me I will say I'm fine
    All pink like birthday girls and valentines
    And then the stillness of the night reminds
    That I don't like to be alone
    My thoughts are race cars running 'round my head
    They burst into flames and they crash into my bed
    Until I fall into a dream instead
    Where all my lovers turn to stone
    
    And all I want is company
    Someone to understand this misery
    Send a reflection of myself to me
    'Cause everybody needs some company
    
    These times I'm living in just make no sense
    Sometimes my face gets pushed against the fence
    I want to scream out in my self-defense
    But I don't want to be alone
    
    And all I want is company
    Someone to understand this misery
    Send a reflection of myself to me
    'Cause everybody needs some company
    
    What is truth and what is fear
    Will I find it under here
    I know they're selling me a lie
    But I'm first in line to buy
    First in line to try
    
    I find some sanity on the written page
    Where life is worth more than a living wage
    They say the battle's over now it's time to change
    And I won't ever be alone
    
    And all I want is company
    Someone to understand this misery
    Send a reflection of myself to me
    'Cause everybody needs some company
    I need some company
    Company

    Miss California
    Lyrics

    Miss California

    Miss California what did I do wrong
    It seems I've loved you
    For just a little too long
    You've gone and left me
    For some preacher's way
    Now you act like you never knew me
    And you can't hear a word I say
    
    Miss California did I get in your way
    Did the neighbors warn you
    What would happen some day
    Like a love like mine
    Was never good anyway
    They said think about your reputation now
    Before you get carried away
    
    Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
    Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
    Don't you know what is good for you
    Can be good for me too
    Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
    
    Miss California was I a little too proud
    I'm standing in the street now
    And I'm screaming out loud
    You try to shove me in your closet
    With your skulls and your bones
    I can be who I am you see
    If I want to do it all alone
    
    Yeah yeah yeah
    
    Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
    Don't you know what is good for you
    Can be good for me too
    Don't you know what's good for me can be good for you
    
    Your sweet seduction led me far from home
    Your self-destruction gives me sticks and stones
    Your propositions make me feel so cold
    When the hand that's trying to hold me down
    Is the one I'm trying to hold
    I know the hand that's trying to hold me down
    Is the one I'm trying to hold
    I said the hand that's trying to force me back
    Is the one that won't let me go
    
    Miss California
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Miss California
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Miss California
    Yeah yeah yeah
    Miss California
    Yeah yeah yeah
    
    Ah huh

    You know what is good for me

    Drag Me Away
    Lyrics

    Drag Me Away

    Did you think I was leaving
    My ticket was just one way
    The angels I believed in
    Were gonna carry me away
    Did you think that I would simply
    Give them my last breath
    Well honey you've got me wrong
    I'd never leave you for death
    It's gonna take more than that to get rid of me
    It's gonna take more than that to make me fade
    They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
    They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away
    
    There is no one I serve
    I am not here to please
    I will not be a hostage
    To my own dis-ease
    
    Oh Come on come on
    Come on out and hold me
    Out into the great sunlight
    No power on earth can stop us
    We'll both become one tonight
    
    I have never been more sure of anything
    I have never been more sure of what I am
    They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
    They'll have to shut my mouth and drag me away
    
    There's no dark that can overcome a flame
    There's no force that can drag me away
    They could bring an army
    Ten thousand men or more
    Their mass weapons of destruction
    Won't even up the score
    
    Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on baby
    They'll have to drag me away
    Come on, come on, come on baby
    They'll have to drag me away
    They'll have to drag me away
    They'll have to drag me away
    They'll have to tie me up and drag me away
    They'''ll have to shut my mouth and drag me away
    There's no dark that can overcome a flame
    There's no force that can drag me away
    
    No force that can overcome a flame
    There's no force that can drag me away

    Indiana
    Lyrics

    Indiana

    She came to this world on a cold night
    Papa turned his head and said
    I don't believe she's mine
    Single momma raised her in a place where
    You can look but never touch
    Cause we don't have enough
    Don't let your hopes get high
    Cause girls like you can't fly
    
    Oh the long nighs in the small room
    With the big dreams
    Oh Indiana
    You're only dying here
    And they don't understand you
    It's a tough road but you start slow
    And before you know it
    You're not alone
    Looking for a place called home anywhere
    Oh Indiana
    
    She tended bar in New York City
    People turned their heads and said
    Baby you sure look fine
    They put her on TV and then they told her
    You're gonna be a star
    You can go so far
    Let your hopes get high
    Cause girls like you can fly
    
    In the long nighs in the small room
    With the big dreams
    Oh Indiana
    You're only dying here
    And they don't understand you
    It's a tough road but you start slow
    And before you know it
    You're not alone
    Looking for a place called home anywhere
    Oh Indiana
    
    Those big dreams are flying machines
    And they'll take you
    Wherever you want to go
    Sometimes you find that what's real is inside
    You don't have to go away
    To find your way home
    Oh Indiana
    
    She turned around and sshe topped running
    She saw that fame was never an answer to her prayers
    She found that answer in her children
    When she takes them to a place
    Where they can have so much
    She lets their hopes get high
    Cause anyone, anyone can fly
    
    In the long nighs in the small room
    With the big dreams
    Oh Indiana
    You're only dying here
    And they don't understand you
    It's a tough road but you start slow
    And before you know it
    You're not alone
    Looking for a place called home anywhere
    Oh Indiana
    
    Oh she's going back
    Oh oh oh

    Nervous
    Lyrics

    Nervous

    They don't much care for you
    No they don't like your kind
    The way you look walk
    Or the way you talk
    The way you always speak your mind
    But you want to be my friend
    You're not anything like them
    You can show me things I've never seen
    You say ooo child what a waste if we never took a taste
    Of everything we find in between
    
    [Chorus]
    Ooo you make me nervous
    Ooo you make me want to run away and hide
    Ooo you make me nervous
    When you look at me I just can't lie
    Ooo you make me nervous tonight
    
    Feels so wrong and feels so right feels like insanity
    I keep acting strange hoping that I'll change
    Waking in a sweat from a burning dream
    And then look at all my friends I keep on pleasing them
    Caught up in the chaos of their minds
    Ooo child the fear I have
    Keeps me bound and keeps me gagged
    Keeps me pushing harder all the time
    
    Ooo you make me nervous
    Ooo you make me want to run away and hide
    Ooo you make me nervous
    When you look at me I just can't lie
    I want to shovel all the blame
    I want to shoot out all the lights
    I want to call you names and start a fight
    Because you make me nervous tonight
    
    Heart pounds hands wet mouth dry
    I shake I scream I cry
    No eat no sleep all night
    I build my lonely cell with secrets I can't tell
    Frozen in my fright
    Ooo you make me nervous tonight
    You make me nervous
    You make me nervous
    You make me nervous

    Heaven On Earth
    Lyrics

    Heaven On Earth

    I grew up in silence
    From silence I became my history
    They fed me fear and violence
    They hooked me up to this reality
    Now I'm not cursing anyone
    They only did what they had done to them
    But if you want to know where I am now
    Then just breathe in and let it out
    
    When you are at the end of your rope
    Come find me
    Holding on to your last string of hope
    Come find me
    Open up your eyes
    I'll show you what your worth
    Don't you know it's you and me
    In this heaven on earth
    
    When I laid down my burden
    The one where I had something I should prove
    Then I found my power
    The one where I'm the mountain I could move
    
    So if you want to know where I am now
    Then just breathe in and let it out
    
    When you are at the end of your rope
    Come find me
    Holding on to your last string of hope
    Come find me
    Open up your eyes
    I'll show you what your worth
    Don't you know it's you and me
    In this heaven on earth
    
    Don't you know that you are golden
    Don't you know that you are pure delight baby
    It doesn't matter what they painted on you
    You can wash it all away tonight
    
    When you are at the end of your rope
    Come find me
    Holding on to your last string of hope
    Come find me
    Open up your eyes
    I'll show you what your worth
    Don't you know it's you and me
    In this heaven on earth

    We Are The Ones
    Lyrics

    We Are The Ones

    We're dreaming from the bottom of the well
    We're curled up in the corner of our cell
    Freedom's just a story that we tell
    I say give me liberty or give me hell
    I know life is just a song
    If I can get the world to sing along
    Brothers and sisters
    
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    
    There are differences we cannot hide
    Yet we all are one spirit deep inside
    Finding out our past has been denied
    Now we can tell our story and start to question why
    Climbing out from under fear
    We'll know what we're doing here
    Brothers and sisters
    
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    
    Who built this pyramid
    A hundred years ago
    Cause we're trapped inside a grid
    While they feed us what we need to know
    The scientists keep telling me
    That we are all what we agree
    So I agree to let you be
    Anyone you want to be
    
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    
    Every stranger you see is a part of you
    Teaching we are the ones
    Every stranger you see is a part of you
    Teaching we are the ones
    We are all there is
    We are the all that is
    And we can get through this
    We are the ones
    We are all there is
    We are the all that is
    We can get through this
    We are the ones
    The ones that we're waiting for
    We are the ones we are the ones
    
    I feel you
    You feel me
    I feel you
    You feel me
    
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for
    We are the ones were are the ones we are the ones
    The one's that we're waiting for

    Only Love
    Lyrics

    Only Love

    I takes me so long to understand sometimes
    Why it's so hard to understand sometimes
    It takes me two or three times sometimes
    To try to get it right sometimes
    To get it right
    I've got some coins in my pocket
    I've got a colored TV
    It's gotten so complicated now
    What does it mean to be free
    
    Only love is real
    Everything is love
    Everything you feel
    That's what your world is made of
    
    And when I took a good look around I see
    My thoughts are coming back to me
    So look around
    We are in charge of our own dreams
    We have more power than it seems
    So look around
    Come on now show me who you're lovin'
    Then show me just who you hate
    Tnen I can show you all our amgels yeah
    That guard your heaven's gate
    
    Only Love is real
    Everything is love
    Everything you feel
    That's what your world is made of

    To Be Loved
    Lyrics

    To Be Loved

    Welcome to the planet earth
    Welcome to the heroes fall
    This is a thing called birth
    The forgetting you knew it all
    This is called your first step
    This is called your first time
    This is called your first break
    
    The one that locks your mind
    The one where you thought that you died
    The one where you screamed and you cried
    I'm still waiting to be loved
    I'm still hoping there's enough
    A constant wanting to be loved
    To be loved
    To be loved
    To be loved
    Welcome to the race of rats
    Welcome to eternal blame
    The trick is to stay asleep
    The key is to play the game
    But don't let 'em see you cry
    Cover the hole inside
    
    Cuz I'm still waiting to be loved
    I'm still hoping there's enough
    The constant wanting to be loved
    Welcome to the planet earth
    Welcome to the heroes call
    This is a thing called birth
    C'mon remember you knew it all
    There's no love from someone else
    If I can't love myself
    And I'm still waiting
    To be loved
    Loved
    I'm still waiting
    I'm still waiting
    Oh
    To be loved
    To be loved
    I'm still waiting
    To be loved
    To be loved
    To be loved
    I'm still waiting
    I'm still waiting
    If I can't love myself
    If I can't love myself
    I'm still waiting
    Waiting
    Still waiting
    To be loved

    Gently We Row
    Lyrics

    Gently We Row

    When my soul crashed into my body
    Falling into consciousness
    That's when my mind began this illusion
    Of taking it step after step
    I looked into mother's eyes
    I said tell me what I should believe
    She drew me a room with a light and said
    Just turn it off when you leave
    
    Slow, slow, this river is slow
    We're all out here on our own
    Row, row, gently we row
    One day we'll find our way home
    Step after step
    They drew me a town
    They drew me a fear and a need
    They drew me a god and
    They drew me some money
    Hiding the truth far from me
    I asked the cool fire light
    Tell me, what I should believe
    And they gave me a song
    And they gave me a dance
    And said sleep now your pain will relieve
    Slow, slow, this river is slow
    And we're all out here on our own
    Row, row, gently we row
    And one day we'll find our way home
    I've stumbled and crawled
    I've begged to know why
    And I've been ashamed
    When I've chosen to lie
    In all of this darkness
    I have searched for a light
    To come and find me
    And when I found me
    I wrapped my arms round
    My own daughter as she fell into her place and time
    And as her mind creates her illusions
    I won't complicate hers with mine
    She looked into her mother's eyes
    She said tell me what I should believe
    And I drew her a door
    And I drew her a key
    And I said when you're ready you'll come and find me
    And we'll walk out of here and tomorrow will be a new day
    Slow, slow, this river is slow
    And you are never out here on your own
    Row, row, gently we row
    Oh
    And together we'll find our way
    Slow, slow, this river is slow
    Life is not what it seems
    Row, row, gently we row
    
    The truth is
    It's only a dream

    Lyrics

    Blue Christmas

    I'll have
    A Blue Christmas
    Without you
    I'll be so blue
    Thinking about you
    Decorations of red
    On a green Christmas tree
    Won't be the same dear
    If you're not here with me
    I'll have a Blue Christmas
    That's certain
    And when that blue heartache
    Starts hurtin'
    You'll be doin' all right
    With your Christmas of white
    But I'll have a blue
    Blue Christmas

    Lyrics

    Glorious

    Windshields kissed with snow on this endless interstate
    Over the fields we go laughing all the way
    We sing love, love, love it's glorious
    Friends and family near, no more judgments, no more fear
    All is calm, all is bright, everyone will hold this light
    And sing love, love, love it's glorious
    Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
    Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
    Believe in heavenly, in heavenly peace
    I have heard the angels sweetly singing o'er the plain
    And I've heard the mountains echoing their sweet refrain
    They sing love, love, love, love, love it's glorious
    Love, love, love it's glorious
    Love, love, love it's glorious
    Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
    Sleep in heavenly, in heavenly
    Believe in heavenly, in heavenly peace

    I'm watching it fall

    But it's not like Christmas at all
    I remember when you were here
    And all the fun we had last year
    
    Pretty lights on a tree
    I'm watching them shine
    You should be here with me
    Baby, please come home
    
    Baby, please come home
    Baby, please come home
    Please, please, please, please

    If there was a way
    (Christmas)
    I would hold back these tears

    Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
    Lyrics

    Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

    Have Yourself
    A merry little Christmas
    Let your heart be light
    From now on
    Our troubles
    Will be out of sight
    Have yourself
    A merry little Christmas
    Make the Yule-tide gay
    From now on
    Our troubles
    Will be miles away
    Here we are as in olden days
    Happy golden days of yore
    Faithful friends
    Who are dear to us
    Gather near to us once more
    Through the years
    We all will be together
    If the Fates allow
    Hang a shining star
    Upon the highest bough
    And have yourself
    A merry little Christmas now

    Ring The Bells
    Lyrics

    Ring The Bells

    As God is God, as light is light
    Whose law is wrong? Whose might is right?
    Here we are on the edge
    The edge of change
    I believe in peace, my only wish
    I believe that we can co-exist
    Let's go further now
    Than we've ever gone before
    And ring the bells, ring the bells of change
    Ring the bells every boy and every girl
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
    All over the world
    We've all been called to wake from sleep
    To feel our power to create the dream
    To step out from the dark
    Past our fathers' fear
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of change
    Ring the bells every boy and every girl
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
    All over the world
    Here we stand in unity
    Making one choice to be free
    Every truth blends into one
    As we believe it shall be done
    Here we stand as soldiers now
    Turning our swords into plows
    There is not a nobler clime
    Achieving peace in our own time
    I know peace begins with me
    With all I feel and with all I see
    And I know it's no easy task
    Removing our own fearful mask
    But I have seen us rise and fall
    Stand on the moon, tear down the wall
    And I know we can do it all
    And do it well, so ring the bells
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of change
    Ring the bells every boy and every girl
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
    All over the world, all over the world
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of change
    Ring the bells every boy and every girl
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
    All over the world, all over the world
    Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace
    Ring the bells, ring the bells
    Ring the bells, ring the bells
    Joy to the world
    Hallelujah

    You sure did treat me nice
    Merry Christmas pretty, baby
    You sure did treat me nice
    Gave me a diamond ring

    While you're standing
    Beneath the mistletoe
    Well, alright

    These pretty presents
    That you see before me

    Christmas In America
    Lyrics

    Christmas In America

    I picked out a tree
    And I tied it to the car
    There's a wreath up on our door
    Eight tiny reindeer in the yard
    I drove under the downtown lights
    Red and green and blue
    The silver neon snowflakes
    Only made me think of you
    It's Christmas all around me
    You're in someone else's land
    So I'm sending out my only wish
    Hey Santa tell the man
    Hey mister send my baby home
    This December I don't want to be all alone
    Oh Christmas in America
    I need you in my arms
    Far away from harm
    Mister send my baby home
    I hear someone singing jingle bells
    No wait that deck the halls
    And the teenagers with candy canes
    Ramble through the malls
    The girls are down at Ruby's
    Trying to find some Christmas cheer
    There's not much to do but drink too much
    When everyday's unclear
    So here I am on Christmas eve
    This silent holy night
    And I reach up to the stars for you
    And I pray that you're alright
    What happened to the peace on earth
    All that goodwill toward men
    Oh come on all ye faithful
    It's time to think again

    Lyrics

    Light A Light

    'Tis the season of change
    The seasons are the contrast
    Heed a life and how it's done
    It's time to let go of all our past
    And let go of what's to come
    Write down your excuses
    And turn them into dust
    And plant the seeds of change
    Water it with trust
    And light a light tonight, we light a light
    We light a light tonight, we light a light
    Now about this time is ending and everyone is here
    We light a light, a light this year
    'Tis the season of change
    What do we have, what do we have not?
    What do we need that isn't here?
    This mindless, numb, consuming
    Is driven by a subtle fear
    It's time we stopped believing
    That there will not be enough
    I know they said it on the TV
    So turn it off, break the chains
    Step outside and feel the love
    And light a light tonight, we light a light
    We light a light tonight, we light a light
    Now about this time is ending, everyone is here
    We light a light, a light this year
    'Tis the season of change
    Ooh change, we shall change
    We must change
    Heaven is inside, it's all around not just above
    Choose only love
    Heaven is inside, it's all around not just above
    Choose only love
    Choose only love
    Choose only love
    Choose only love
    Choose only love
    And light a light tonight, we light a light
    Light a light tonight, we light a light
    We light a light
    Light a light tonight, we light a light
    We light a light tonight, we light a light
    'Tis the season of change

    It's Christmas Time
    Lyrics

    It's Christmas Time

    What if we could create peace on Earth?
    I wonder what that would look like
    I wonder if heaven and nature would sing
    Hallelujah
    What if we all stopped believing the line
    That happiness comes from a stork?
    What if we looked at the damage we've done
    And finally shouted no more?
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    What if we did create peace on Earth?
    How would we feel 'bout ourselves?
    If we know we were perfect and good and enough
    For all we desire is well
    What if we all started spreading the news
    There's nothing to fear anymore?
    We are connected, one family of light
    Hallelujah
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time, oh yeah
    It's Christmas time
    I think we can create peace on Earth
    I finally decide I might
    By healing our pain, intending our love
    In the world we create what we find
    What if we all took the time to be still?
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la, it's Christmas time
    Create peace on Earth
    Create peace on Earth
    Create peace on Earth
    Create peace on Earth
    It's Christmas time
    It's Christmas time
    Fa, la, la, la, la

    O Divine Night
    Lyrics

    O Divine Night

    There is a time in late December
    The sun stands still in winter
    For three days and three long nights
    Throughout time we've watched the sky
    And waited for the sun to come and save us
    Save us from the longest night
    For years I have been doing things
    And singing songs that don't make any sense
    But if I scratch the surface just a little bit
    The holiday paint is pretty thin
    Look to the sky with hope and wonder
    There's a star in the east to guide us home
    We are closer now than we've ever been
    To peace on earth and good will to men
    As we celebrate the longest night
    O night divine
    O night divine

    California
    Lyrics

    California

    Raised up on mid-western dreams
    Only a few shall get
    What everyone shall need
    I took my family's burden
    Strapped it to my chest
    A few hundred bucks,
    And a kiss for luck
    And I pointed my dreams west
    
    To California
    Come rescue me
    California
    I am almost free
    
    I kept on driving to the setting sun
    Galaxies of angels
    Welcome everyone
    I took my heart out of its box
    Attached it to my sleeve
    Well, I will be here every night
    Because that's what I believe
    
    In California
    Come rescue me
    California
    I am almost free
    
    I will find my love
    I will know my peace
    I will seek my truth
    I am almost free
    I am almost free...
    
    I am almost free
    I am almost free
    I am almost free
    
    In California
    I am almost free
    In California
    I am almost free
    (Rescue me)
    California
    I am almost free

    Back in 1982
    An LA bar
    I've come so far
    In my Kansas dancing shoes
    I'm just a singer
    And I'm looking for a song
    Do you want to sing along?
    
    Two greyhounds later
    And I'm feeling alright
    I've got to have you
    And it must be tonight
    Come on back to my place
    Well, it's really just a room
    But I'll be making some money soon
    
    Goodbye and thank you
    Oh, my number, yeah- please phone
    Two or three weekends
    On the 405 alone
    You say come on and stay
    And when you sing down at the bar
    It will not be so far
    
    [Chorus:]
    And I tried to do my best
    I never meant to hurt no-one
    I was waiting for my break
    That I knew one day would come
    And I'd plug in my guitar
    And I'd look out across the room
    And I'd dig into my heart
    And I'd try to sing the truth
    And I know I did my best
    I never meant to hurt no-one
    
    As I recall
    Back in 1982
    I never said goodbye or why
    I just left a note for you
    Then one night I saw you
    Across the road,
    Across the dark
    A shameful spear into my heart
    
    Your look was haunting
    An unexpected pain
    I am so sorry
    For the unexpected rain
    
    The sadness that you kissed
    The fresh scars on your wrist
    I can't make it go away
    
    [Chorus]
    
    Good night ladies
    Good night
    I'm gonna leave you now,
    Good night ladies
    Good night
    I'm gonna leave you now.
    (Sleep tight)

    Message To Myself
    Lyrics

    Message To Myself

    I'm sending out a message to myself
    So that when I hear it on the radio
    I will know that I am fine,
    I will know that I am loved.
    
    I warned myself of the blackness in my chest
    The razors in my heart would never rest
    It's funny how you find just what you seek
    Love is what you get when love is what you speak
    
    I'm sending out a message to myself
    So that when I hear it on the radio
    I will know that I am fine,
    I will know that I am loved.
    
    I made every choice along the way
    Each day I spent in hell I chose to stay
    It's funny what you fear can make you weak
    Truth is what you get when truth is what you speak
    
    I'm sending out a message to myself
    So that when I hear it on the radio
    I will know that I am fine,
    I will know that I am loved.
    
    So if you are listening I am just passing through
    You can take some for yourself 'cause it works that way too
    
    Sha la la la la la la la la la
    Sha la la la la la la la la la
    I will know that I am fine,
    I will know that I am loved.
    
    I'm sending out a message to myself
    So that when I hear it on the radio
    I will know that I am fine,
    I will know that I am loved.
    
    I'm sending out a message to myself
    So that when I hear it on the radio
    I will know that I am fine,
    I will know that I am loved.

    God Is In The People
    Lyrics

    God Is In The People

    We keep thinking life is what it's not
    We keep building this impossible facade
    Why do we keep trying to turn people into gods
    When God is in the people
    God is in the people

    Map Of The Stars
    Lyrics

    Map Of The Stars

    All the people in your home town
    And you were just teen
    Said that you were pretty
    Like in the magazine
    
    And so you left your home town
    To try out for the part
    Of everybody's pretty little angel
    With a pretty little heart
    
    You studied hard
    The map of the stars
    All because you wanted
    Yeah, you really wanted
    Every night you wanted to be
    
    [Chorus:]
    One of the little angels
    That flies between the stars
    One of the little angels
    With a pretty little car
    
    So you eat a little less
    And you smoke a little more
    Waiting in the lines
    For them to open up the doors
    For all the little angels
    
    So you got yourself an agent
    You made a little deal
    They got you on the TV
    Everyone agreed you had the charm and the appeal
    
    So you bought yourself a house in the Hollywood Hills
    You bought yourself a tan
    You fixed your nose and hair
    Learned how not to care
    Got a pretty little man
    
    You landed hard
    On the map of the stars
    Now everybody wants you
    Oh, they really want you
    Every night they want you to be
    
    [Chorus]
    
    So you eat a little less
    And you drink a little more
    Waiting in your room
    For them to open up the door
    For all the little angels
    
    Now you drink a little more
    Your family's talking to the press
    And the movie didn't score
    So you eat a little less
    Just a little bit less
    
    Well the people on the street now
    They're getting kind of mean
    They read about your break up
    In the magazine
    
    And somewhere in your hometown
    A girl tries out her best
    Maybe she'll go far
    She wants to be a star
    So she eats a little less
    
    All the little angels
    All the little angels

    Threesome
    Lyrics

    Threesome

    Some people try to keep something alive
    After it's gone, After it dies
    They try all kinds of things
    Like taking off rings
    Swapping up keys
    Seeing who swings
    
    I'm happy to say that you and I've got no problem
    Baby, I just wanted you to know
    
    [Chorus:]
    I don't wanna have a threesome
    I don't wanna sleep with nobody else
    I don't wanna be a swinger
    I'd rather keep you all to myself
    
    Now, sometimes at night
    after the kids are in bed
    I'm changing the channels
    And you're surfing the web
    I stumble onto that show
    With all of those ladies
    You know with those things
    Acting all crazy
    
    I don't know how they manage
    To do all that damage
    We barely find enough time to kiss
    
    [Chorus]
    
    I've got enough spice
    In this family life
    I don't need an affair with a friend
    
    I don't wanna have a threesome
    Ever again
    
    So I'll get away
    If you can slip away too
    I'll meet you at three
    Alright, I'll meet you at two
    We know just where to go
    We know just what to do
    It's perfect that way
    Just me and you
    
    [Chorus]
    
    I've got enough spice
    in this family life
    I don't need an affair with a friend
    
    I don't wanna have a threesome
    I don't wanna have a threesome
    I don't wanna have a threesome
    Ever again

    I've Loved You Before
    Lyrics

    I've Loved You Before

    I think of how you know me,
    no doubts no thinking twice.
    When your smile can be so soothing,
    a familiar paradise.
    When there's no one else that makes me whole.
    I have never needing more
    I get this feeling I've loved you before
    
    We were lovers in an army,
    marching all for Rome.
    side by side in battle,
    did we bravely leave our home?
    Did I hold you in my arms,
    as you were taking your last breath?
    Did shout to all the gods,
    that I would love you beyond death?
    I swear I've loved you before.
    
    Did we hide in the dark ages,
    from a vengeful god above?
    Were our names too unfamiliar,
    to ever speak of love?
    Did I cling to every moment with you,
    in every parting glance?
    An accidental touch,
    did we ever take the chance?
    I know I've loved you before.
    
    Have I wandered through the desert?
    Have I looked and learned all the stars?
    Have I rode the days and nights on rails,
    to get back where you are?
    And every time I foundered,
    it's your eyes I know for sure.
    
    When I think of how you know me,
    no doubts no thinking twice.
    When your smile can be so soothing,
    a familiar paradise.
    When there's no one else that makes me whole.
    I never wanting more.
    I get this feeling.
    I know I've loved you before.
    
    I know I've loved you before
    I've loved you before

    Lyrics

    A Simple Love

    It's a simple love
    That holds us together
    It's a simple truth
    That sets us free
    There's a place we're bound
    And they call it forever
    It's a simple love
    Between you and me

    Heroes And Friends
    Lyrics

    Heroes And Friends

    You can't take a trip
    If you don't first say goodbye
    You can't find a star
    If you don't look up in the sky
    You can't find the light
    If you don't know where the dark ends
    And you can't change the heroes and friends
    You can't light a spark
    If you don't first carry a flame
    You can't take the weight
    Of a single ounce of shame
    You can't change the signal
    Just the message that it sends
    The message of the heroes and friends
    You can't touch the screen
    It can take the place of love
    You can disappear in either
    When pushes come to shove
    You can't walk the night into the dawn
    And back again
    Looking for the heroes and friends
    You can't ride the back roads
    Of the hometowns of the world
    You can't collide on sidewalks
    In a neon lighted blur
    You can't rush the stages
    And believe the words again
    Looking for the heroes and friends
    You can dedicate your life
    To breaking down the walls
    To ringing the alarm
    Screaming down the halls
    You can't stand the judgment
    Of the meaning in the air
    That we are all just heroes and friends
    Looking for the heroes and friends

    The Kingdom Of Heaven
    Lyrics

    The Kingdom Of Heaven

    A suffering soul on the way to the kingdom of heaven
    Held up a sign that says god hates America
    A child has been lost; a mother is shocked and is grieving
    And turning away, turning away
    He said there is a love that is so hideous and destructive
    We must drive it from earth to save all of our children
    He must know it well in the night it's the hell that he speaks of
    It keeps him awake, keeps him awake
    My god is love, my god is peace, my god loves you, my god loves me
    A suffering soul on the way to the kingdom of heaven
    Prayed in the dark, death to the infidel
    He strapped on his desperate pain and his faith to his body
    Blew them away, blew them away
    A suffering soul on the way to the kingdom of heaven
    Shouts on the news, they are the godless ones
    The anger inside and the fear that it hides never leave her.
    When the cameras are gone, when the cameras move on
    Ohhhh
    People come on tell me where is your kingdom of heaven?
    Where is your faith, where do you put your fear?
    Do you have price for the truth and a price for believing?
    Heaven is here, heaven is here
    My god is love, my god is peace, my god is you, and my god is me.

    Open Your Mind
    Lyrics

    Open Your Mind

    How come there's so many people willing to suffer?
    So they get up and suffer every day
    They think they were put on this earth to suffer
    And by god they're gonna suffer
    Until they suffer their lives away
    How come so many are willing to say
    There is no sense there is no plan
    Yet they will not believe the ancient mysteries
    Passed down through time in to their hands
    If my choice is despair or wonder
    On the line between truth and belief
    Do I just let the tide take me under
    Or do I let the fascination
    Come on and rain all over me
    Open your mind
    Cause you have been blind
    Imagine the answers
    Or questions will be all you find
    Open your mind

    Imagine That
    Lyrics

    Imagine That

    A mother was grieving her loss
    Her soldier the ultimate cost
    She went to the man
    Who has been told he's a king
    Waited outside of his compound
    To ask him a few things
    Ya-I-ya-a-wayy
    She said "for what noble cause
    Did my son have to die?
    Tell me where are there weapons?
    Why did you have to lie?"
    Imagine that
    A lieutenant in the army
    In his heart and his soul he believes
    In the land of the free
    And the home of the brave
    Now he's standing on trial
    For he will not behave
    As they wish
    Ya-I-ya-a-wayy
    He said "I believe the constitution
    To defend it and uphold
    I will not fight your war for profit
    No sir I will not go"
    Imagine that
    A scientist and his machine
    The smallest of life he has seen
    Inside matter inside atoms
    As far as you can go
    He saw the strings of life that vibrate
    With the universal flow
    Ya-I-ya-a-wayy
    He said "I have seen the spirit
    And all its creation
    Its in each and every thought
    And all our intentions"
    Imagine that
    Imagine that
    Imagine that
    Imagine that

    What Happens Tomorrow
    Lyrics

    What Happens Tomorrow

    I believe if I look hard enough
    I will see
    That there can be enough
    I believe I can think clear enough
    To conceive
    A place where there's enough
    
    If not now, when
    If not today then
    What about tomorrow
    What happens tomorrow
    
    I believe a woman can work hard and succeed
    And we could be content
    To believe that she could be in charge
    Of the free
    And be the president
    
    If not now, when
    If not today then
    What happens tomorrow
    What happens tomorrow
    If you become the change
    You want to see you change
    What happens tomorrow
    What happens tomorrow
    
    I believe that we are waking up from the spell
    That those that profit from the fear
    Cast so well
    And good people of the earth now can tell
    There is no us and them
    
    If not now, when
    If not today then
    What happens tomorrow
    What happens tomorrow
    
    All is love
    All is choice
    Everyone and every voice
    All of life that you see
    All are possibilities
    As above so below
    To wed the sense into the soul
    This is truth I believe
    I believe I believe
    
    Truth is of the people
    By the people
    For the people

    Refugee
    Lyrics

    Refugee

    We got somethin', we both know it, we don't talk too much about it
    Ain't no real big secret, all the same, somehow we get around it
    Oh listen, it don't really matter to me, baby
    You believe what you wanna believe
    You see, you don't have to live like a refugee, no
    Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
    Tell me why you want to lay there and revel in your abandon
    Honey, it don't make no difference to me, baby
    Everybody has to fight to be free
    You see, you don't have to live like a refugee
    (Don't have to live like a refugee)
    Oh baby, you don't have to live like a refugee
    (Don't have to live like a refugee)
    Oh baby, we ain't the first
    I'm sure a lot of other lovers been cursed
    Right now it seems real to you, but it's
    One of those things you gotta feel to be true
    Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
    Who knows maybe you were kidnapped
    Tied up taken away and held for ransom
    Honey, it don't really matter to me, baby
    Oh, everybody's had to fight to be free
    You see, you don't have to live like a refugee
    (Don't have to live like a refugee)
    No baby, you don't have to live like a refugee
    (Don't have to live like a refugee)
    No baby, you don't have to live like a refugee
    (Don't have to live like a refugee)
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
    (Don't have to live like a refugee)
    Oh baby, you don't have to live like a refugee

    Similar Features
    Lyrics

    Similar Features

    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    You never had to wait for nothing in your life
    I guess wanting me must have been a steel blue knife
    And when night after night the scent of passion would linger
    You had to have the jewels wrapped around your finger
    Now you keep running down the road in your midnight state of mind
    Curiosity kills if you can't read the signs
    Go on and close your eyes, imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    Dancing with the wall made you bitter and sweet
    There ain't much you can do when they just lay it at your feet
    But you could tell by the song I wanted to be the one
    Did you listen again when the damage was done
    Now the paint's still wet in your do-it-by-number dream
    Are you gonna tell me how it felt, will you tell me what it means
    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    Was it want with no desire?
    Was it smoke with no fire?
    Did I say it doesn't rip me apart?
    I lied
    I'm sorry dear my hands are tied
    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    Close your eyes, imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    It shouldn't bother you
    Hey, hey, hey
    It shouldn't bother you
    Hey, hey, hey
    It shouldn't bother you
    Shouldn't bother you

    Like The Way I Do
    Lyrics

    Like The Way I Do

    Is it so hard to satisfy your senses?
    You found out to love me you have to climb some fences
    Scratching and crawling along the floor to touch you
    And just when it feels right you say you found someone to hold you
    Does she like I do
    Baby tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do
    Like the way I do
    Can I survive all the implications
    Even if I tried could you be less than an addiction
    Don't you think I know there's so many others
    Who would beg steal and lie, fight, kill and die
    Just to hold you, hold you like I do
    Baby tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do
    Oh, nobody loves you, like the way I do
    Nobody wants you, like the way I do
    Nobody needs you, like the way I do
    Nobody aches, nobody aches just to hold you
    Like the way I do
    No, no, no
    Tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you, existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Oh, tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you, baby
    Like the way I do
    No, like the way I do
    Oh, ho, yeah

    Bring Me Some Water

    Tonight I feel so weak
    But all in love is fair
    I turn the other cheek
    And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air
    And I know you're only human
    And I haven't got talking room
    But tonight while I'm making excuses
    Some other woman is making love to you
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
    Will this aching pass
    Will this night be through
    Wanna hear the breaking glass
    I only feel the steel of the red hot truth
    And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
    I need some insanity that temporary kind
    Tell me how will I ever be the same
    When I know that that woman is whispering your name
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    And I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
    Oh-huh,oh yeah
    Got my soul
    Uh-huh, ooh yeah
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    And I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
    Oh yeah, oh, oh
    Baby's got my heart, my baby's got my mind
    Tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul

    You Can Sleep While I Drive
    Lyrics

    You Can Sleep While I Drive

    Come on baby let's get out of this town
    I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
    There's a chill in my bones
    I don't want to be left alone
    So baby you can sleep while I drive
    I'll pack my bag and load up my guitar
    In my pocket I'll carry my harp
    I got some money I saved
    Enough to get underway
    And baby you can sleep while I drive
    We'll go thorough Tucson up to Santa Fe
    And Barbara in Nashville says we're welcome to stay
    I'll buy you glasses in Texas a hat from New Orleans
    And in the morning you can tell me your dreams
    You know I've seen it before
    This mist that covers your eyes
    You've been looking for something
    That's not in your life
    My intentions are true
    Won't you take me with you
    And baby you can sleep while I drive
    Oh is it other arms you want to
    Hold you the stranger
    The lover you're free
    Can't you get that with me

    No Souvenirs
    Lyrics

    No Souvenirs

    Hello, hello this is Romeo
    Calling from a jackpot telephone
    Shame, shame, but I love your name
    And the way you make the buffalo roam
    Oh, oh, oh, fly, fly I guess this is goodbye
    Oh you packed up your heart
    And you left no souvenirs
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    Once, twice I thought it might be nice
    To come into your kitchen and play
    Cool, cool just a crazy fool
    I never saw it any other way
    Oh, oh, oh, wait, wait I guess I'm just too late
    Oh you made up your mind
    Love shouldn't be so hard
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now, hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    No shirts, no shoes
    No jackets, no blues
    You car's for sale
    You forward your mail
    You're growing your hair
    You don't want to know where
    I'm calling you from
    Or how come
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    Yeah, yeah
    Hello, hello, this is Romeo

    Ain't It Heavy
    Lyrics

    Ain't It Heavy

    Sometimes I know that it's never enough
    Survival is fine but satisfaction is rough
    I try with an angel tonight
    Spread these wings and I'm on for the ride
    Cruise these streets where my innocence hides
    There's some things you can't deny
    What is it about this human condition
    I need some kind of promise
    Some kind of submission tonight
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    I'm feelin' kinda loose, I'm feelin' kinda mean
    I've been feeling kinda wild since I turned seventeen
    Or, is it madness
    Tell me where can a woman find any kind of peace
    When does the fury and the agony cease
    How long have I got to say please
    There's a hole in my jeans I only wanted to fade
    I've been ripping out seams
    Somebody else made tonight
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    So heavy
    This woman needs
    This woman needs some
    please,
    please, please, is never enough
    hm, you feel so, feel so
    feels, so, so
    tonight, tonight
    yeah
    feels so heavy
    heavy, heavy
    oh so heavy
    this night is so
    night is so hard
    it's so heavy
    the night heavy
    come on, come on
    come on
    so heavy

    I'm The Only One (Edit)
    Lyrics

    I'm The Only One (Edit)

    Please baby can't you see
    My mind's a burnin' hell
    I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
    My heart apart as well
    Tonight you told me
    That you ache for somethin' new
    'Cause some other woman is lookin' like something
    That might be good for you
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    Nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    Please baby can't you see
    I'm trying to explain
    I've been here before and I'm locking the door
    And I'm not going back again
    Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
    You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
    That holds you down today
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    Nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    Nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    I'm the only one baby
    I'm the only one
    Nobody else is gonna love you

    Come To My Window (Single Edit)
    Lyrics

    Come To My Window (Single Edit)

    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    I would dial the numbers
    Just to listen to your breath
    I would stand inside my hell
    And hold the hand of death
    You don't know how far I'd go
    To ease this precious ache
    You don't know how much I'd give
    Or how much I can take
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    Keeping my eyes open
    I cannot afford to sleep
    Giving away promises
    I know that I can't keep
    Nothing fills the blackness
    That has seeped into my chest
    I need you in my blood
    I am forsaking all the rest
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you, oh
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    I don't care what they think
    I don't care what they say
    What do they know about this love,
    Anyway
    Come, come to my window
    I'll be home, I'll be home, I'll be home
    I am coming home
    Come to my window, oh-ho
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    I'll be home, I'll be home
    I am coming home
    Come to my window, oh-ho
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    I'll be home, I'll be home, I'll be home

    If I Wanted To

    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    If I wanted to, I could do anything right
    I could dance with the devil on a Saturday night
    If I wanted to, I could turn matches to gold
    smoke, drink, swear, and I would never grow old
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    If I only wanted to
    If I wanted to, I could run fast as a train
    Be as sharp as a needle that's twisting your brain
    If I wanted to, I could turn mountains to sand
    Have political leaders in the palm of my hand
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    Hey, if I only wanted to
    I could leave tonight, and I would be all right
    Stop holding on if I wanted to, if I only wanted to
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    If I wanted to, I could be as patient as death
    Fix this hole in my heart leaking into my flesh
    If I wanted to, I could turn sparks into ice
    There'd never be another woman
    Who could make you think twice
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to, if I only wanted to
    Hey, if I only wanted to
    Hey, if I only wanted to
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    I Want To Come Over
    Lyrics

    I Want To Come Over

    I know you're home
    You left your light on
    You know I'm here
    The night is thin
    I know you're alone
    I watched the car leave
    Your lover is gone
    Let me in
    Open your back door
    I just need to touch you once more
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over
    I know your friend
    You told her about me
    She filled you with fear
    Some kind of sin
    How can you turn
    Denying the fire
    Lover I burn
    Let me in
    Open your back door
    I just need to touch you once more
    Oh, Oh
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    I know you're confused
    I know that you're shaken
    You think we'll be lost
    Once we begin
    I know you're weak
    I know that you want me
    Lover don't speak
    Let me in
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    I want to come over
    To see you,
    To see you again

    Angles Would Fall
    Lyrics

    Angles Would Fall

    The rope that's wrapped around me
    Is cutting through my skin
    And the doubts that have surrounded me
    Are finding their way in
    I keep it close to me
    Like a holy man prays
    In my desperate hour
    It's better that way
    So I'll come by and see you again
    I'll be such a very good friend
    Have mercy on my soul
    I will never let you know
    Where my mind has been
    Angels never came down
    There's no one here they want to hang around
    But if they knew
    If they knew you at all
    Then one by one the angels
    Angels would fall
    I've crept into your temple
    I have slept upon your pew
    I've dreamed of the divinity
    Inside and out of you
    I want it more than truth
    I can taste it on my breath
    I would give my life just for a little death
    So I'll come by and see you again
    I'll be just a very good friend
    I will not look upon your face
    I will not touch upon your grace
    Your ecclesiastic skin
    I'll come by and see you again
    I'll have to be a very good friend
    If I whisper they will know
    I'll just turn around and go
    You will never know my sin

    Lucky
    Lyrics

    Lucky

    I want to see how lucky Lucky can be
    I saw you through my blind intoxication
    My shock induced insane self medication
    You looked at me and smiled
    Said get ready to get wild
    Sugar you just need a brief vacation
    [CHORUS]
    I want to see how lucky Lucky can be
    I want to ride with my Angel and live shockingly
    I want to drive to the edge and into the sea
    I want to see how lucky Lucky can be
    I was dried up I was starving I was mangled
    I looked like hell twisted up and tangled
    You whispered in my ear
    The ghosts are gone it's clear
    For too long you've been tied up you've been strangled

    Christmas In America
    Lyrics

    Christmas In America

    Well, I picked out a tree
    And I tied it to the car
    There's a wreath up on our door
    Eight tiny reindeer in the yard
    
    I drove under the downtown lights
    Red an' green and blue
    The silver neon snowflakes
    Only made me think of you
    It's Christmas all around me
    You're in someone else's land
    So I'm sending out my only wish
    Hey Santa, tell the man:
    
    Hey mister
    Send my baby home
    This December
    I don't want to be all alone
    Oh, Christmas in America
    I need you in my arms
    Far away from harm
    Send my baby home
    
    I hear someone singing "Jingle Bells"
    No wait, that's "Deck the Halls"
    And the teenagers with candy canes
    Ramble through the malls
    
    The girls are down at Ruby's
    Trying to find some Christmas cheer
    There's not much to do but drink too much
    When every day is unclear
    
    So here I am on Christmas Eve
    This silent holy night
    And I reach up to the stars for you
    I pray that you're alright
    
    Hey mister
    Send my baby home
    This December
    I don't want to be all alone
    Oh, Christmas in America
    I need you in my arms
    Far away from harm
    Mister, send my baby home
    
    What happened to the peace on Earth?
    All that goodwill toward men?
    Oh, come on, all ye faithful
    It's time to think again
    
    Hey mister
    Send my baby home
    This December
    I don't want to be all alone
    Oh, come on, come on, come on
    Hey mister
    Send my baby home
    This December
    I don't want to be all alone
    
    Oh, come on, come on
    
    Hey mister
    Send my baby home
    Oh, this December
    I don't want to be all alone
    
    Send my baby home
    Send my baby home
    Send my baby home
    Send my baby home
    Come on, send my baby home
    Send my baby home
    Send my baby home
    Send my baby home
    
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Oh, come on, come on
    Yeah, yeah, oh, oh, oh
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh

    Piece Of My Heart

    Come on, come on, come on, come on
    Didn't I make you feel like you were the only one, yeah
    I said didn't I give you nearly everything that a woman possibly can
    Honey you know that I did
    Well each time I tell myself that I, I think I've had enough
    Oh, I am gonna show you baby, a woman can be tough
    I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on
    And take it, take another little piece of my heart now, baby
    Break it, break another little bit of my heart now, darling
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Have a, have another little piece of my heart now, baby
    You know you got it, if it makes you feel good, ooh yes it does, yeah
    You're out on the street lookin' good
    And honey deep down in your heart, child, you know that it ain't right
    You never, never, never, never, never hear me when I cry out at night
    And honey I, I cry all the time
    And each time I tell myself that I, I can stand the pain
    You take me in your arms, and I'm singing once again
    I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on
    And take it, take another little piece of my heart now, baby
    Break it, break another little bit of my heart now darling
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    And take it, take another little piece of my heart now, baby
    Break it, break another little bit of my heart now darling, yeah

    You know you got it, wow

    This Is Not Goodbye
    Lyrics

    This Is Not Goodbye

    Bravely you let go of my hand
    I can't speak yet you understand
    Where I go now, I go alone
    This path I walk, these days of stone
    And the angels are calling
    I must go away
    Wait for me here, silently stay
    And don't ask me why
    Only believe this is not goodbye
    All of my strength, all my desire
    Still cannot melt this breath of fire
    I go to meet some kind of test
    Bury the truth that scars my chest
    And the angels are calling and calling
    I must go away
    Wait for me here, silently stay
    And don't ask me why
    Only believe this is not goodbye
    I gathered all my courage
    I shaved off all my fear
    With this banner on my shoulder
    I hold your essence near
    And the angels are calling and calling and calling
    I must go away
    Wait for me here, silently stay
    And don't ask me why
    Only believe this is not goodbye
    Only believe this is not goodbye

    I Run For Life
    Lyrics

    I Run For Life

    It's been years since they told her about it
    The darkness her body possessed
    And the scars are still there in the mirror
    Everyday that she gets herself dressed
    Though the pain is miles and miles behind her
    And the fear is now a docile beast
    If you ask her why she is still running
    She'll tell you it makes her complete
    I run for hope
    I run to feel
    I run for the truth, for all that is real
    I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
    I run for you and me my friend
    I run for life
    It's a blur since they told me about it
    How the darkness had taken its toll
    And they cut into my skin
    And they cut into my body
    But they will never get a piece of my soul
    And now I'm still learning the lesson
    To awake when I hear the call
    And if you ask me why I am still running
    I'll tell you I run for us all
    I run for hope
    I run to feel
    I run for the truth, for all that is real
    I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
    I run for you and me my friend
    I run for life
    And someday if they tell you about it
    If the darkness knocks on your door
    Remember her
    Remember me
    We will be running as we have before
    Running for answers
    Running for more
    I run for hope
    I run to feel
    I run for the truth, for all that is real
    I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
    I run for you and me my friend
    I run for life
    I run for hope
    I run to feel
    I run for the truth, for all that is real
    I run for your mother, your sister, your daughter, your wife
    For you and me my friend
    I run for life
    I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
    I run for you and me my friend
    I run for life

    Lyrics

    Lucky

    I want to see how lucky Lucky can be
    I saw you through my blind intoxication
    My shock induced insane self medication
    You looked at me and smiled
    Said get ready to get wild
    Sugar you just need a brief vacation
    [CHORUS]
    I want to see how lucky Lucky can be
    I want to ride with my Angel and live shockingly
    I want to drive to the edge and into the sea
    I want to see how lucky Lucky can be
    I was dried up I was starving I was mangled
    I looked like hell twisted up and tangled
    You whispered in my ear
    The ghosts are gone it's clear
    For too long you've been tied up you've been strangled

    This Moment
    Lyrics

    This Moment

    I, I am watching you sleep
    It's the promise you made
    What I find I can keep
    Oh I want to swallow the moon
    Give a smile back to you
    Lighting your way
    Tell the angels they'll just have to wait
    [Chorus]
    Cause I want to stay here in this moment
    Can I quietly slip into you
    You and I can stay here in this moment
    Let the world fade away
    I just want to stay with you
    I, I am watching you breathe
    I am pulled into you
    As you smash into me
    Oh I want to give you the stars
    All that I can hold in my arms
    Placing them where you lay
    Tell the angels they'll just have to wait
    With my hand on your skin
    We can slowly begin
    I am free
    Now the heavens have less
    Cause I found the best
    And I won't let them take you away
    Tell the angels they'll just have to wait

    If You Want To
    Lyrics

    If You Want To

    Hello yes that's what I said
    I guess I thought that I was dead
    So I just called you from my bed to say hello
    You see I got this funny notion
    Life is only just an ocean
    I've been drowning in emotion
    Now I'm swimming back to shore
    And I'd like to talk to you
    CHORUS
    If you want to you can call I'll be around
    If you want to you can write this number down
    If you want to
    If you want to leave a message at the tone
    If you want to you can call me here at home
    If you want to
    I'll be alone
    So now I've called
    Yes it's been a couple days
    Okay seven this I know
    But I've been movin' kinda slow
    So I called oh it must be so appalling
    If you think that I've been stalling
    This is me now I am calling
    And I'm better than before
    And I'd like to talk to you
    Don't you want to know don't you want to be
    Someone who takes a chance
    On a fool like me
    Staring at the door
    Staring down the hall
    Waiting my whole life just for you to call
    Hello yes that's what I said
    I am breathing I'm not dead
    I'm waiting here now in my bed
    And I'd like to talk to you
    If you want to let your fingers do the walk
    If you want to I got hours I can talk
    If you want to

    Breathe
    Lyrics

    Breathe

    I played the fool today
    And I just dream of vanishing into the crowd
    Longing for home again
    But home is a feeling I buried in you
    I'm all right, I'm all right
    It only hurts when I breathe
    I can't ask for things to be still again
    I can't ask if I could walk through the world in your eyes
    Longing for home again
    But home is a feeling I buried in you
    I'm all right, I'm all right
    It only hurts when I breathe
    I'm all right, I'm all right
    It only hurts when I breathe
    My window through which nothing hides
    And everything sings
    'Cause I'm counting the signs
    Cursing the miles in between
    Home is a feeling I buried in you
    I'm all right, I'm all right
    It only hurts when I breathe

    Mercy
    Lyrics

    Mercy

    Well I have lived ten years plus ten
    And ten and ten again
    I have seen too much to pretend
    Then you wanted to come in
    I have survived all of the lies
    They made me wise
    The locks and walls and the peace it buys
    Still when I look into your eyes
    It's a surprise when you say
    It's gonna be all right
    It's gonna be okay
    Just hold on tight
    Let it all go away
    Oh mercy mercy baby
    What do you want from me
    Well I plead mercy mercy baby
    I do not know what this all means
    It's been awhile since I been stylin'
    In just my jacket and my jeans
    It hurts to walk it hurts to talk
    It hurts to think about it
    Shout about it
    Could I be sure without a doubt
    That you could never live without me
    I want to fall in you crawl in you
    Surrender all in you now
    Could I be sure in you pure in you
    Finding the cure in you
    Now I plead have mercy on me
    Now I am kneeling at the alter
    In the temple of your eyes
    And I am asking for a miracle
    I have been too long paralyzed
    When you say get up and stand up
    And climb the rope of hope
    And open up again
    Oh the peace you say is promised me
    Seems too much to comprehend

    Secret Agent
    Lyrics

    Secret Agent

    Smooth as cream she's every young boys' dream
    She's like a hot roller coaster on a video screen
    She's off the hook
    Take a look
    Let your imagination cook
    She don't play by the rules
    She don't go by the book
    All the boys want to know if she's got something to hide
    All the girls are relieved she working for the other side
    She's a sinner a saint
    She'll run it cool and hot
    She's a secret agent
    You can believe it or not
    Killer eyes and homicidal sighs
    You can't resist it to be twisted in her suicidal thighs
    Confessional lips
    Professional fingertips
    It's a deception to perfection
    Her exceptional hips
    Her disguise is specialized
    And her code is confidential
    It's her modus operandi
    She's a threat makes them sweat
    As she drags her cigarette
    Man what you see
    Ain't always what you get

    Will You Still Love Me
    Lyrics

    Will You Still Love Me

    The sky is too high
    To paint tonight
    The wind is too strong
    To hold onto
    I'd climb on your roof
    And call out your name
    But somebody stole my silver shoes
    Now the show must go on and on and on
    Will you still love me anyway
    Will you still need me when you're victorious
    Will you still want me when I've nothing to say
    Will you still love me anyway
    I am in the big top
    On the live wire
    Under the gun
    Over the fire
    I'd swing up so high
    Like a swan I would dive
    But someone took my net and then they buried me alive
    And the crowd screams for more encore encore
    Oh I, I need to know why
    Does a love die
    What becomes a lie
    When does it begin
    Tell me how's it end
    When you're carved into my skin

    Meet Me In The Dark
    Lyrics

    Meet Me In The Dark

    KEEP YOUR EYES DOWN, KEEP YOUR HEAD LOWERED, KEEP TO YOUR SELF DEAR, DO NOT TELL A SOUL.YOU KNOW IT'S WRONG, WHAT THEY'VE BEEN SAYIN'. AND YOU KNEW ALL ALONG, THAT I WOULD HAVE TO GO. FIND A PLACE WHERE LIGHT SHINES ON MY REFLECTION, A PLACE WHERE I CAN STAND UP ON MY OWN, NOT DOWN ON MY KNEES, until THEN PLEASE
    MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE SHADOWS, PAST THE OLD GRAVE YARD, DOWN EISENHOWER ROAD. MEET ME WHERE THE STORMS BLOW OUT ON THEIR OWN DEAR, MEET ME IN THE DARK AND NEVER LET ME GO.
    I KNOW EVERY ONE HAS THEIR UNSPOKEN FEAR, IT EATS AWAY THEIR SENSES AND THEIR HUMANITY. THEY CARRY ALL THEIR SECRETS, EVERY NIGHT DOWN TO THE RIVER, AND THEY TRY SO HARD TO DROWN THEM, THEY WON'T DO THAT TO ME. CAUSE I'M WORKIN' HARD AND SAVIN' ALL MY MONEY, AND THE TIPS IN THIS JAR WILL BY A BRAND KNEW SET OF WINGS, FOR MY MURCURY, until THEN PLEASE
    MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE SHADOWS, PAST THE OLD GRAVE YARD, ON EISENHOWER ROAD. MEET ME WHERE THE STORMS BLOW OUT ON THEIR OWN DEAR, MEET ME IN THE DARK AND NEVER LET ME GO.
    I COULD NEVER HIDE THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, IF GOD MADE A MISTAKE, THEN I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE. MAYBE ITS MY FATE TO SWIM AGAINST THIS TIDE, SWALLOWING MY PRIDE. KEEP YOUR EYES DOWN, SAY THAT YOU DON'T KNOW ME. FOR I COULD NOT SURVIVE IF THEY TOOK YOU AWAY
    MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE SHADOWS, PAST THE OLD GRAVE YARD, DOWN EISENHOWER ROAD. MEET ME WHERE THE STORMS BLOW OUT ON THEIR OWN DEAR, MEET ME IN THE DARK,MEET ME IN THE DARK, MEET ME IN THE DARK

    Tuesday Morning
    Lyrics

    Tuesday Morning

    Up and down this road I go
    Skippin' and dodgin'
    From a 44
    10:03 on a Tuesday morning
    In the fall of an American dream
    A man is doing what he knows is right
    On flight 93
    He loved his mom and he loved his dad
    He loved his home and he loved his man
    But on that bloody Tuesday morning
    He died an American
    Now you cannot change this
    You can't erase this
    You can't pretend this is not the truth
    Even though he could not marry
    Or teach your children in our schools
    Because who he wants to love
    Is breaking your Gods' rules
    He stood up on a Tuesday morning
    In the terror he was brave
    And he made his choice
    And without a doubt
    A hundred lives he must have saved
    And the things you might take for granted
    Your inalienable rights
    Some might chose to deny him
    Even though he gave his life
    Can you live with yourself in the land of the free
    And make him less of a hero than the other three
    Well it might begin to change ya
    In a field in Pennsylvania
    Stand up America
    Hear the bell now as it tolls
    Wake up America
    It's Tuesday morning
    Come on let's roll

    Lyrics

    Giant

    You tried to hold us down
    You tried to hold us back
    You tried to make us wrong
    You tried to make us crack
    You wanted to see us cry
    You wanted to see us leave
    You didn't count on the tide
    You didn't count on the pride
    You didn't count on me
    I am a giant
    And you will not make me fall
    And you will not make me crawl
    I am a giant
    And I'm not alone
    Winds of change have blown
    And the walls come tumbling down
    And I've learned from my mistakes
    Picked myself up off the floor
    I have learned just what it takes
    Now I am stronger than before
    And we are standing side by side
    We are determined now to win
    We have come too far
    And we've got the scars
    And we are never going back into the shadows again
    I am a giant
    Hey hey bye bye

    Well you told your friends you'd have a little bit of fun

    Keep your head up don't you sweat in the spotlight
    You're comin' out tonight, yeah
    You're comin' out tonight

    But every wild fire comes from a little bitty spark, yeah
    Does your Mama know who you're hangin' around

    Nothing like a good scream and shout
    Your kiss is like medicine
    A prescription to ecstasy
    And your mind is my playground
    Look at what I found lying next to me
    Baby whatcha doing tonight
    I'll be anyone you want me to be
    Just a girl in a bar
    Your personal superstar
    I just wantcha to

    When You Find The One
    Lyrics

    When You Find The One

    I was a slick Midwestern gal
    On the long hard road into Southern Cal
    Didn't find any crime
    In filling up all my time
    I had the devil in my bones
    And an angel on my mind
    And I drank up all the movies
    And I searched for happy endings
    I turned love inside out
    Till I was perfectly pretending
    Still I believed it could be true
    When you find the one
    There's no questioning the silence
    All is said and done
    When you find the one
    When you find the one
    You could say that I was crazy
    I was that kind of girl
    I had to open up a lot of oysters
    Before I found myself a pearl
    I had to kiss a lot of frogs
    To find my grass was green enough
    Had to be face down in the gutter
    To see what is and isn't love
    Then I woke from all the dreaming
    To your taste and to your laughter
    I cried till I was dry
    And now I live my ever after
    I believed I always knew
    When you find the one
    There's no questioning the silence
    All is said and done
    When you find the one
    And when you make the choice
    To believe in your existence
    With hello you will know
    When you find the one

    Lover Please

    A shot in the dark I woke up to find
    You had broke all the rules
    And you changed your mind
    Didn't I love you good
    Didn't I love you right
    Then tell me where are you going
    Dressed to kill tonight
    Oh this one's gonna hurt like hell
    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover please
    It's the same old tune
    I have sung before
    It's the same old game
    It's just a different score
    If there was just one thing
    I could call my own
    It would be your love
    That's sinking like a stone
    Oh this one's gonna hurt like hell
    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover please
    And they hold you like I want to
    And the give you want I want to
    And they take it like I want to
    And they make it and they break it
    Why must you reject me
    Why can't you protect me
    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover
    Answer my prayer and answer the phone

    The Prison
    Lyrics

    The Prison

    I was high and dry like the Kansas sky
    If I ached for any more I knew I'd surely die
    Night after night trying to get out of my skin
    Day after lonely day
    You'd send me back again
    I have stood inside this prison
    I have touched it's stony walls
    I know before you try to run
    You gotta learn to crawl
    I tried to leave it all behind me
    I drove all night just to drive all day
    But the walls of this prison still surround me
    And I can't break away
    I held you so close I thought my soul would break
    But you were just a ghost
    The holiest mistake
    I will not be a judge or the one to set you free
    I'll just keep on drivin'
    And time's a friend to me
    I have stood inside this prison
    I have touched it's stony walls
    I know before you try to run
    You gotta learn to crawl
    I tried to leave it all behind me
    I drove all night just to drive all day
    But the walls of this prison still surround me
    And I can't break away
    The sentence has been read everything is done
    I wish I could say goodbye to you
    Wish I could hold the sun
    My eyes are dull and burnt
    And they'll lie to me sometimes
    Cause I thought I saw you cryin'
    I have stood inside this prison
    I have touched it's stony walls
    I know before you try to run
    You gotta learn to crawl
    I tried to leave it all behind me
    I drove all night just to drive all day
    But the walls of this prison still surround me
    And I can't break away

    Walking On Water
    Lyrics

    Walking On Water

    What did you want
    How could I guess
    You wanted more
    I gave you less
    A miracle is all I need
    A bush to burn
    A stone to bleed
    Walking on water
    Water to wine
    Love lasts forever
    Wish you were mine
    What did I take
    That took away
    Desire's spark
    A lover's blaze
    Stone cold skin
    A bitter breeze
    A miracle is all I need
    Walking on water
    Water to wine
    Love lasts forever
    Wish you were mine
    Walking on water
    Water to wine
    Love lasts forever
    Wish you were mine
    Walking on water
    Water to wine
    My love lasts forever
    I wish you were mine
    Oh my love last's forever
    I wish you were mine

    Down To One
    Lyrics

    Down To One

    What went right
    What went wrong
    Doesn't really matter much
    When it's gone
    Was it too hard to try
    Was it too hard to lie
    Did you just grow tired of hello and goodbye
    Was it the naked truth that made you run
    Where do I go now
    That I'm down to one
    Sooner or later
    We all end up walking alone
    I'm down to one
    My heart is a traitor
    It led me down this road
    Now it's done
    I'm down to one
    I want to know where I failed
    I want to know where I sinned
    Cause I don't want to ever feel this way again
    Was the wanting too deep
    Did it block your sun
    Where do I go now
    That I'm down to one
    I guess sooner or later
    We all end up walking alone
    I'm down to one
    My heart is a traitor
    It led me down this road
    Now it's done
    I'm down to one
    What am I supposed to think
    What am I gonna say
    What did I ever know
    About this love anyway
    Down to one
    My heart is a traitor
    It led me down this road
    And I'm down to one
    I guess sooner or later
    We all end up walking alone
    I'm down to one
    My heart is a traitor
    And now it's done
    Down to one
    One
    One
    I'm down to one

    Goodnight
    Lyrics

    Goodnight

    I washed the dishes poured out the old wine
    Called a new friend for the second time
    It's not bad this brand new life
    It's clean and it's sharp like a brand new knife
    I pull up the covers and curl up tight
    Turn down the sound turn off the light
    Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
    Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)
    You're not here you're not even there
    Out of my heart, out of my hair
    I can't roll away this missing piece
    You could only ever want what I could never ever be
    I just pull up the covers and curl up tight
    Turn down the sound turn off the light
    Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
    Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)
    How can I be okay if I'm pulling away
    All the things that held together my life
    All I want tonight is to touch you and kiss you
    But I only wish you
    Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight)
    I just pull up the covers and curl up tight
    Turn down the sound turn off the light
    Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
    Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)
    I just pull up the covers and curl up tight
    Turn down the sound turn off the light
    Close my eyes and I quietly whisper
    Goodnight, goodnight (goodnight goodnight)
    Goodnight (goodnight goodnight)
    Goodnight (goodnight)
    Goodnight, goodnight my honey just
    Just sleep tight sleep tight my baby

    It's Only Me
    Lyrics

    It's Only Me

    They say the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away
    Well it was definitely gone when I woke up today
    I walked up to the mirror to see
    It's only me
    I got out of the kitchen I couldn't stand the heat
    Back into my skin and out on the street
    Lookin' for a little salvation
    It's only me
    Baby you can just pretend
    That maybe you can love again
    But babe I know better
    It's only me
    And wherever you are tonight
    The satisfaction you invite
    Nobody knows better
    It's only me
    Well I went down to the revival
    To give my soul a chance
    And the DJ spoke to God
    And the congregation danced
    And I heard a sound and I turned around
    It's only me
    I found a little angel who had fallen from the sky
    And I took that little angel and I taught her how to fly
    When the night is done and the morning comes
    It's only me
    Baby you can just pretend
    That maybe you can love again
    But babe I know better
    It's only me
    And wherever you are tonight
    The satisfaction you invite
    Nobody knows better
    It's only me, only me
    All you'll ever want
    And all you'll ever need
    And all you'll ever taste
    And all you'll ever bleed
    Look deep inside you
    It's only me
    Baby you can just pretend
    That maybe you can love again
    But babe I know better
    It's only me
    And wherever you are tonight
    The satisfaction you invite
    Nobody knows better
    It's only me
    Oh
    Baby you can just pretend
    That maybe you can love again
    But babe I know better
    It's only me
    It's only me
    It's only me

    I Want To Be In Love
    Lyrics

    I Want To Be In Love

    I have climbed the highest mountain
    I have sailed across the sea
    I have wrestled with my demons
    And woke up with only me
    I have been around the block
    Three times maybe four
    And I think I deserve just a little more
    In front of total strangers won't you kiss me
    Flowers for no reason but you miss me
    Oh I want to be in love
    You're standing on the doorstep in the rain
    Cause you couldn't wait to see me once again
    Oh I want to be in love
    I have made some big mistakes
    And I've paid a heavy price
    I found a little peace between will and sacrifice
    I have watched as all my dreams
    Went walking out the door
    And I think I deserve just a little more
    I'm looking for a heart of gold
    I'm looking for a hand to hold
    A happy end
    Strong and kind
    Somewhere to rest my troubled mind

    Please Forgive Me
    Lyrics

    Please Forgive Me

    It's been so long since I've touched
    So long since I wanted
    Then you made me laugh
    And my heart opened
    I want you to find me charming and wise
    I just want you to find me
    Somewhere here inside
    I barely know you
    We've been sort of friends
    So what if I called you and called you again
    What would I tell you
    Where would I begin
    Please forgive me
    If I don't know what to do
    It's an old fire
    This familiar desire
    But my skin is painfully new
    There's a light in my window
    It shines all night long
    In the morning my coffee
    Is sweet but it's strong
    I carefully reach out from behind these walls
    I'll take a deep breath and give you a call
    Hello how are you
    Not much at all

    The Different
    Lyrics

    The Different

    You've never been to the moon
    But don't you want to go
    Under the sea in the volcano
    You've never looked into my eyes
    But don't you want to know
    What the dark and the wild
    And the different know
    Come dance with me now
    We'll dance without a care
    I'm as free as a fire
    And change is in the air
    There are some things in my life
    I'll never understand
    But they become the force
    That makes me who I am
    Don't you worry about the kids
    The kids are all right
    Mama's rollin' in the back yard
    Filled with love and light
    'cause you live and you learn
    And you learn to hold on
    And time will make it heal
    And time will make it gone
    Come with me now
    Come with me now
    It's time to try
    It's time to fly

    Heal Me
    Lyrics

    Heal Me

    Ain't it crazy
    For a moment there
    This felt just like dying
    But now I see that something inside
    Is coming alive
    Ain't it crazy
    No use running from a revolution
    I just surrender to this evolution
    Heal me lift me
    Take me to the other side
    Amazing grace
    Has touched my face
    And the sweet sound doesn't lie
    Ain't it crazy
    For a moment there
    I just gave up trying
    But now I see
    You can let the light in
    You can begin again
    Ain't it crazy
    I lay me down in this sweet perfection
    I am a witness to my resurrection
    Heal me lift me
    Take me to the waterside
    Drop me in let me swim
    Let everyone know
    I'll be coming home again
    Make no mistake
    I'm wide-awake
    Ain't it crazy
    Heal me lift me
    Take me to the other side
    I'll take what I've earned
    These lessons I've learned
    I'm ready for the ride
    Heal me lift me
    Take me and my soul will fly
    My battered heart will make a new start
    Let everyone know
    I'll be coming home again
    Heal me lift me
    Take me to the waterside
    Drop me in
    Come on and watch me swim
    Let everyone know
    I'll be coming home again

    Breakdown

    How could I stay
    How could I breathe
    There had to be more for me
    Promises gone
    Plastic and stone
    I'm doing fine all alone
    So you're having a breakdown
    So you're losing the fight
    So you're having a breakdown
    And I'm driving and crying Unraveled and flying
    I'm coming to your breakdown tonight
    I cannot run
    I cannot hide
    It came with me locked inside
    The bough will break
    Cradle will fall It only takes one call
    So you're having a breakdown
    So you're losing the fight
    So you're having a breakdown
    And you need me tonight
    I found my place in this downtown
    Salt air and yellow street lights
    So you're having a breakdown
    And I'm driving and crying
    Unraveled and flying
    I'm coming to you're breakdown tonight

    Angels Would Fall
    Lyrics

    Angels Would Fall

    The rope that's wrapped around me
    Is cutting through my skin
    And the doubts that have surrounded me
    Are finding their way in
    I keep it close to me
    Like a holy man prays
    In my desperate hour
    It's better that way
    So I'll come by and see you again
    I'll be such a very good friend
    Have mercy on my soul
    I will never let you know
    Where my mind has been
    Angels never came down
    There's no one here they want to hang around
    But if they knew
    If they knew you at all
    Then one by one the angels
    Angels would fall
    I've crept into your temple
    I have slept upon your pew
    I've dreamed of the divinity
    Inside and out of you
    I want it more than truth
    I can taste it on my breath
    I would give my life just for a little death
    So I'll come by and see you again
    I'll be just a very good friend
    I will not look upon your face
    I will not touch upon your grace
    Your ecclesiastic skin
    I'll come by and see you again
    I'll have to be a very good friend
    If I whisper they will know
    I'll just turn around and go
    You will never know my sin

    Stronger Than Me
    Lyrics

    Stronger Than Me

    So you closed your eyes in the morning
    You said you want to start smoking again
    You said you had that dream last night
    Of the stranger in your room
    You said you want to start making new friends
    Well I'd found some peace
    You want release
    You must be stronger than me
    I don't know how you can take it
    Invest your heart and then you break it
    I don't know how you can set it free
    You must be stronger than me
    Set it up but it's not perfect
    Tear it down cause it's not worth it
    If someone else can light your mystery
    They must be stronger than me
    So I closed my eyes at midnight
    Cinderella must go home
    But the map was burned
    And I've taken a wrong turn
    And I found myself alone
    I'm tired of this war
    I don't want to fight no more
    You must be stronger than me
    So it's too late then
    You could have told me when
    Living died and passion lied
    Now you're a refugee
    Well if it's what you need
    Run away from the truth you see
    You must be stronger than me

    Into The Dark
    Lyrics

    Into The Dark

    There were stairs they were steep
    I was falling falling deep
    You were there you were small
    There was screaming down the hall
    I've been here sleeping all these years
    There comes a time we all know
    There's a place that we must go
    Into the soul into the heart
    Into the dark
    There was fire there was death
    There was lying on your breath
    I turned away I would pretend
    But the burning never ends
    I've been here sleeping all these years
    There was a wave over the house
    There was fear choked in my mouth
    You were there you left your mark
    As I stumbled in the dark

    Enough Of Me
    Lyrics

    Enough Of Me

    We were all wounded in some domestic war
    I found you to settle my score
    You looked like father
    You felt like mother
    My mind told my heart
    There is no other
    And I gave you my soul
    And every ounce of control
    I gave you my skin
    And my original sin
    I gave you my pride and my side
    Oh my pride
    Ain't that enough
    I turned your dreams into lightning
    Ain't that enough
    I held the world back for you
    Ain't that enough
    I loved you past the point of dying
    Ain't that enough of me for you
    I was so sure one and one gave you one
    My noisy love is coming undone
    Now you leave like father
    Disappointed like mother
    And I know in my heart
    There is no other
    And I gave you my soul
    And every ounce of control
    And I gave you my shame
    And my eternal flame
    And I gave you my need and my seed
    Oh my need
    Why can't you hold on

    Truth Of The Heart
    Lyrics

    Truth Of The Heart

    I hear your questions
    I see your face
    Your life before you
    Is full of grace
    What can I tell you
    To let you know
    Your angel's eyes
    Will watch you grow
    Come listen close
    And I'll try to let you know
    It's all I know
    There is no magic
    There are no secrets
    We all begin this race at the start
    But I have come this far
    With a truth of the heart
    Deep down inside
    I think we're all the same
    Try not to judge someone
    And never shame
    I do believe that people are good
    They just want hope and respect
    And to be understood
    Sometimes it hard sometimes it's strange
    But the truth of the heart is people can change
    Yes there is danger and there are shadows
    And there is fear inside the dark
    It has powered countries and borne religion
    Fear can never rule the heart
    My father's burden
    My mother's rain
    My own desire
    My sister's pain
    All souls have traveled along this road
    Each one has carried their own heavy load

    Mama I'm Strange
    Lyrics

    Mama I'm Strange

    What's this little lie
    They keep on telling me
    It's just another high
    They keep on selling me
    I was only five
    They fed me so much jive
    They said just have a ball Just be a Barbie doll
    They churned and burned me out
    Until they turned me out
    Over and over again
    Mama I'm strange
    The thoughts and the wants are the locks
    On the back of my brain
    I'm descending pretending I'm blending
    I'm going insane
    And they want me to change
    Mama I'm strange
    I'm on a shaky wall
    I'm tripping down the hall
    And all the king's men can't
    Can't sew me up again
    I've got a leaky head
    Don't know the full extent
    I'm drowning in my bed
    I'm just an accident
    They chewed and blew me out
    Until they threw me out
    Over and over again
    If I could tranquilize
    I might just vaporize
    They couldn't supervise
    They couldn't criticize
    I have no evidence
    I have no reverence
    It makes no difference
    I have no innocence

    Scarecrow
    Lyrics

    Scarecrow

    Showers of your crimson blood
    Seep into a nation calling up a flood
    Of narrow minds who legislate
    Thinly veiled intolerance
    Bigotry and hate
    But they tortured and burned you
    They beat you and they tied you
    They left you cold and breathing
    For love they crucified you
    I can't forget hard as I try
    This silhouette against the sky
    Scarecrow crying
    Waiting to die wondering why
    Scarecrow trying
    Angels will hold carry your soul away
    This was our brother
    This was our son
    This shepherd young and mild
    This unassuming one
    We all gasp this can't happen here
    We're all much too civilized
    Where can these monsters hide
    But they are knocking on our front door
    They're rocking in our cradles
    They're preaching in our churches
    And eating at our tables
    I search my soul
    My heart and in my mind
    To try and find forgiveness
    This is someone child
    With pain unreconciled
    Filled up with father's hate
    Mother's neglect
    I can forgive But I will not forget
    Scarecrow crying
    Waiting to die wondering why
    Scarecrow trying
    Rising above all in the name of love

    How Would I Know

    You say you don't feel like yourself
    Does that mean you're somebody else
    How would I know
    Oh you say you just don't feel quite right today
    Does that mean that you're slipping away
    How would I know
    You might believe there's a paradise
    In the next hello
    How would I know
    If you don't tell me so
    If you wanted to go
    How would I know
    You say you don't know what you're doing here
    Does that mean you might disappear
    How would I know
    You might feel that there's something real
    In the next hello

    Lyrics

    My Lover

    No one conceals me like
    No one reveals me like
    My lover
    No one can disconnect
    No one can resurrect
    Like my lover
    My lover makes me weak
    Gives me breath to speak
    My lover takes me home
    Cools the rolling stone
    My lover's thorny kiss
    The reason to exist
    I wonder
    No one can saturate
    No one manipulates
    Like my lover
    The sensuality
    It's immortality
    My lover
    My lover needs to seize
    Bring me to my knees
    Reads me like a prayer
    Calls the spirit there
    Secretly inspires
    Strips me to desire
    I wonder

    Sleep
    Lyrics

    Sleep

    After your laughter like thunder
    After your skin like coffee and cream
    After it takes our bodies into the night
    After we've come to the extreme
    I want to lay down on your shoulder
    Just inside your arm
    I want to listen to your heart beat
    And your breathing on and on
    I want to lay down on your shoulder
    Surrender to your peace
    And go to sleep
    And when we've gone a million miles
    Made true our dreams with sweat and bone
    After we've built it up with our bare hands
    Made strong a place we can call home
    And when the light in my eye is fading
    When running water becomes too deep
    Finally angels turn my fire to dust
    And when my soul's no longer mine to keep

    Lyrics

    Your Little Secret

    I know what you're thinking baby
    I used to be just like you
    You move when she's not looking baby
    One sugar ain't enough for you
    You, you're taking out your loans
    You're burying your bones
    Before your cover's blown
    You better take it home
    I like the way you look
    I know you like me
    But one and one and one
    Baby makes three
    Stop playing those eyes
    If you want me to keep
    Your little secret
    Tell it softly to me baby
    You never meant no one no harm
    Your wonderland's a mirror baby
    It's swiftly fading like your charm
    You, you're stepping out of line
    You're spilling all the wine
    Leave it on the vine
    I can't give you mine
    I like the way you look
    I know you like me
    But one and one and one
    Baby makes three
    Stop playing those eyes
    If you want me to keep
    Your little secret
    I could I won't
    I can't I don't
    You make it hard
    Talk down my guard
    My senses soaked
    My ego's choked
    I will not lie
    Will not lie

    I'll press my suit
    I'll find that song by Perry Como you like to sing
    I'll eat your TV dinners
    And wear you cigar ring
    Do you think that I can persuade
    Don't make me fade because
    I really like you baby
    I want to see you baby
    I really like you baby
    I want to be you baby
    I'll gladly make you
    My first tattoo
    You and me forever
    In red and black and blue
    I'll let you drive my car
    I'll even paint my eyes
    Forget about all my friends
    And tell outrageous lies
    Do you think I can persuade
    Don't make me fade because
    I really like you baby
    I want to see you baby
    I really like you baby
    I want to be you baby

    Nowhere To Go
    Lyrics

    Nowhere To Go

    I know a place
    Down past an old shack
    On a road that goes to nowhere
    Ain't nobody coming back
    We can go there tonight
    We can talk until dawn
    Or maybe something else
    I'll leave the radio on
    There's no one to hear
    You might as well scream
    They never woke up
    From the American dream
    And they don't understand
    What they don't see
    And they look through you
    And they look past me
    Oh, you and I dancing slow
    And we got nowhere to go
    Past the Wal-Mart and the prison
    Down by the old V.A.
    Just my jeans and my t-shirt
    And my blue Chevrolet
    It's Saturday night
    Feels like everything's wrong
    I've got some strawberry wine
    I want to get you alone
    Down by the muddy water
    Of the mighty Mo
    In an old abandoned box car
    Will I ever know
    Dance with me forever
    This moment is divine
    I'm so close to heaven
    This hell is not mine
    This hell is not mine

    Lyrics

    An Unusual Kiss

    It's 1:25 a.m. I think I've seen that look somewhere before
    1:25 a.m. I thought that you were headed for the door
    Then something touched my skin
    I won't ask you to leave here any more
    Was it the talk or the drink or the dance that led to this
    Was I so naive presuming the innocence
    Well it's 1:54 and it's such an unusual kiss
    Come on come on come on
    Over and over
    Come on come on come on
    We all wanted this
    Come on come on come on
    Over and over
    It's such an unusual kiss
    The smell the taste the touch is so brand new
    The thrill of the eyes that capture this forbidden view
    It's 2:45 and you'll have some explaining to do
    It's 3:17 a.m. please let me into your eyes
    It's 4:23 and I try to hold on as you rise
    I'll give you all that I have if that's what you want me to try
    Come on come on come on
    Over and over
    Come on come on come on
    We all wanted this
    Come on come on come on
    Over and over
    It's such an unusual kiss
    It's 5:26 a.m. I've got nothing left that I can say
    5:26 a.m. black and white has melted into gray
    My baby draws the shades as the taxi pulls away
    Come on come on come on
    Over and over
    Come on come on come on
    We all wanted this
    Come on come on come on
    Over and over
    It's such an unusual kiss

    I Want To Come Over
    Lyrics

    I Want To Come Over

    I know you're home
    You left your light on
    You know I'm here
    The night is thin
    I know you're alone
    I watched the car leave
    Your lover is gone
    Let me in
    Open your back door
    I just need to touch you once more
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over
    I know your friend
    You told her about me
    She filled you with fear
    Some kind of sin
    How can you turn
    Denying the fire
    Lover I burn
    Let me in
    Open your back door
    I just need to touch you once more
    Oh, Oh
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    To see you again
    I want to come over
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    I know you're confused
    I know that you're shaken
    You think we'll be lost
    Once we begin
    I know you're weak
    I know that you want me
    Lover don't speak
    Let me in
    I want to come over
    To hell with the consequence
    You told me you loved me
    That's all I believe
    I want to come over
    It's a need I can't explain
    I want to come over
    To see you,
    To see you again

    All The Way To Heaven
    Lyrics

    All The Way To Heaven

    I want to find me a car
    With only one headlight
    A straight six Ford
    On a good luck night
    I want to roll down the windows
    And teach you to fly
    I want to give you a thrill
    The kind you can't buy
    I want to lose all your demons and go
    I want to tear off your chains 'cause I know
    All the way to heaven is heaven
    Caught between the spirit and the dust
    All the way to heaven is heaven
    Deep inside of us
    I want to find me a bar
    With a blue light on
    Dollar shot specials
    A bartender named Dawn
    Painting the town
    Selling the farm
    You can pierce your nose
    And I'll tattoo my arm
    I want to lose all your demons and go
    I want to tear off your chains 'cause I know
    All the way to heaven is heaven
    Caught between the spirit and the dust
    All the way to heaven is heaven
    Deep inside of us
    I want to find me a carnival
    Outside of town
    A tilt-a-whirl set up
    With a merry-go-round
    Cotton candy fingers
    And a snow cone mouth
    I want to roll you in sawdust
    Till they run us both out
    All the way to heaven
    All the way

    I Could Have Been You
    Lyrics

    I Could Have Been You

    Take, take a look at the sky
    Sometimes your heaven seems to far away
    Take, take a look under here
    Where deprivation turns into decay
    I've stood under this rain, felt it seep into my brain
    I've shut my eyes and crawled around this mud
    I'm scared of growin' old, I shiver when I'm cold
    Don't you think I bleed the same blood?
    I, I could've been you, you could've been me
    One small change that shapes your destiny
    If you want the proof, cut me and you'll see
    I could've been you, you could've been me
    Wait, wait before you turn off
    Maybe there's a chance we can relate
    Wait, everybody turns on
    Why deny a fact that's so innate?
    It's not so easy anymore, the way you used to keep score
    Not so black and white, the color of your sin
    Take a walk inside my shoes, a path I didn't choose
    Spend the night inside of my skin
    I, I could've been you, you could've been me
    One small change that shapes your destiny
    If you want the proof, cut me and you'll see
    I could've been you, you could've been me
    Change is turning into fear, fear is melting into hate
    With hate you justify your crime, a crime compassion can erase
    Erase
    Erase
    Touch, touch what I feel
    And know I believe everything I say
    So go, go if you must
    Remember one thing as you walk away:
    I, I could've been you, you could've been me
    One small change that shapes your destiny
    If you want the proof, cut me and you'll see
    I could've been you, you could've been me

    Shriner's Park
    Lyrics

    Shriner's Park

    I wonder what you're doing
    In the night out there
    Is a sad summer breath tangled in your hair
    Can you hear the lonely engines
    Screaming through the town
    There's no where to run
    When the darkness comes down
    Is there a song inside of you
    That you tried to forget
    Like your fake ID and your mom's cigarettes
    Does it take you back
    Is the vision intense
    You and me in Shriner's Park
    Trying to make some sense
    You were just seventeen
    But your laughter was mild
    You liked my dreams you thought I was wild
    Is there a rhythm in your step now
    That reminds you of a dance
    Do you push it all away
    Cause you never took the chance
    You'd sneak out your window
    When I'd come for you
    I'd be waiting in the street light on 8th Avenue
    You'd slip into my car
    We'd drive down past the fence
    You and me in Shriner's Park
    Trying to make some sense
    Did you feel like you were crazy
    When they sent you far away
    Did no one have the answers
    When you hung your head to pray
    You could not let yourself dream
    Never dare believe
    You could ever be more
    Than you were born to be
    Do you lock up your house
    Like you locked up your past
    If I were to call
    Could you free me at last
    Could you slip into my car
    Could we drive down past the fence
    You and me in Shriner's Park
    Trying to make some sense

    Change
    Lyrics

    Change

    You woke me up at 3:00 a.m.
    To tell me about the fire
    You said that she was more than a friend
    You were consumed by your desire
    And so it goes
    This too shall pass away
    It cuts so strange
    The only thing that stays the same
    Is change
    Your love was here but now it's gone
    And your eyes no longer want me
    And now I can't hold back the dawn
    And the truth that seems to haunt me
    And so it goes
    This too shall pass away
    It cuts so strange
    The only thing that stays the same
    Is change
    The only thing
    That stays the same
    Is change
    I'm not so sure where I have been
    I don't know just where I'm going
    Hard as I hold it in my hand
    I can stop the wind from blowing
    And so it goes
    This too shall pass away
    It cuts so strange
    Roll me away
    It cuts so strange
    The only thing that stays the same
    Is change

    This War Is Over
    Lyrics

    This War Is Over

    Take off my shield
    Carry my sword
    I won't need it anymore
    Find me a sky
    Give me my wings
    Frozen and broken but free
    Tell them I'm all right
    I'm coming home
    Tell them I'm all right
    I am alone
    This war is over
    I'm coming home
    Take off my shame
    Bury it low
    I won't need it anymore
    Find me the sun
    Give me it whole
    Melt all the chains in my soul
    Tell them I'm all right
    I'm coming home
    Tell them I'm all right
    I am alone
    This war is over
    I'm coming home

    I'm The Only One
    Lyrics

    I'm The Only One

    Please baby can't you see
    My mind's a burnin' hell
    I got razors a rippin' and tearin' and strippin'
    My heart apart as well
    Tonight you told me
    That you ache for somethin' new
    'Cause some other woman is lookin' like something
    That might be good for you
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    Nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    Please baby can't you see
    I'm trying to explain
    I've been here before and I'm locking the door
    And I'm not going back again
    Her eyes and arms and skin won't make it go away
    You'll wake up tomorrow and wrestle the sorrow
    That holds you down today
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    Nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    Go on and hold her till the screaming is gone
    Go on believe her when she tells you
    Nothing's wrong
    But I'm the only one
    Who'll walk across the fire for you
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    And I'm the only one
    Who'll drown in my desire for you
    It's only fear that makes you run
    The demons that you're hiding from
    When all your promises are gone
    I'm the only one
    I'm the only one baby
    I'm the only one
    Nobody else is gonna love you

    If I Wanted To

    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    If I wanted to, I could do anything right
    I could dance with the devil on a Saturday night
    If I wanted to, I could turn matches to gold
    smoke, drink, swear, and I would never grow old
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    If I only wanted to
    If I wanted to, I could run fast as a train
    Be as sharp as a needle that's twisting your brain
    If I wanted to, I could turn mountains to sand
    Have political leaders in the palm of my hand
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to
    Hey, if I only wanted to
    I could leave tonight, and I would be all right
    Stop holding on if I wanted to, if I only wanted to
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    If I wanted to, I could be as patient as death
    Fix this hole in my heart leaking into my flesh
    If I wanted to, I could turn sparks into ice
    There'd never be another woman
    Who could make you think twice
    I wouldn't have to be in love with you
    If I only wanted to, if I only wanted to
    Hey, if I only wanted to
    Hey, if I only wanted to
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh oh

    Come To My Window
    Lyrics

    Come To My Window

    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    I would dial the numbers
    Just to listen to your breath
    I would stand inside my hell
    And hold the hand of death
    You don't know how far I'd go
    To ease this precious ache
    You don't know how much I'd give
    Or how much I can take
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    Keeping my eyes open
    I cannot afford to sleep
    Giving away promises
    I know that I can't keep
    Nothing fills the blackness
    That has seeped into my chest
    I need you in my blood
    I am forsaking all the rest
    Just to reach you
    Just to reach you
    Oh to reach you, oh
    Come to my window
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    I don't care what they think
    I don't care what they say
    What do they know about this love,
    Anyway
    Come, come to my window
    I'll be home, I'll be home, I'll be home
    I am coming home
    Come to my window, oh-ho
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window, I'll be home soon
    I'll be home, I'll be home
    I am coming home
    Come to my window, oh-ho
    Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
    Come to my window
    I'll be home soon
    I'll be home, I'll be home, I'll be home

    Silent Legacy
    Lyrics

    Silent Legacy

    Why did you steal the matches
    From the one room motel
    Once they gave you answers
    Now they give you hell
    They will never understand
    They wonder where did they go wrong
    How could you be so selfish
    Why can't you get along
    And as you pray in your darkness
    For wings to set you free
    You are bound to your silent legacy
    You've seen it in the movies
    And you've heard it on the street
    Craving the affection
    Your blood is full of heat
    They don't listen to your reasons
    As original as sin
    Deny all that you feel
    And they will bring you home again
    And as you pray in your darkness
    For wings to set you free
    You are bound to your silent legacy
    Your body is alive
    But no one told you what you'd feel
    The empty aching hours
    Trying to conceal
    The natural progression
    Is the coming of your age
    But they cover it with shame
    And turn it into rage
    And as you pray in your darkness
    For wings to set you free
    You are bound to your silent legacy
    You are digging for the answers
    Until your fingers bleed
    To satisfy the hunger
    To satiate the need
    They feed you on the guilt
    To keep you humble keep you low
    Some man and myth they made up
    A thousand years ago
    And as you pray in your darkness
    For wings to set you free
    You are bound to your silent legacy
    Mothers tell your children
    Be quick you must be strong
    Life is full of wonder
    Love is never wrong
    Remember how they taught you
    How much of it was fear
    Refuse to hand it down
    The legacy stops here

    I Will Never Be The Same
    Lyrics

    I Will Never Be The Same

    So you walked with me for a while
    Bared your naked soul
    And you told me of your plan
    How you would never let them know
    In the morning of the night
    You cried a long lost child
    And I tried oh I tried to hold you
    But you were young
    And you were wild
    But, I , I will never be the same
    Oh, I , I will never be the same
    Caught in your eyes
    Lost in your name
    I will never be the same
    Secrets of your life
    I never wanted for myself
    But you guarded them like a lie
    Placed up on the highest shelf
    In the morning of the night
    When I woke to find you gone
    I knew your distant devil
    Must be draggin' you along
    But, I , I will never be the same
    Oh, I , I will never be the same
    Caught in your eyes
    Lost in your name
    I will never be the same
    And you swore that you were bound for glory
    And for wanting you had no shame
    But I loved you
    And then I lost you
    And I will never be the same

    All American Girl
    Lyrics

    All American Girl

    She wakes up in the morning
    With a pain in her jet black head
    A decaf coffee in her hand
    And a Marlboro red
    She drives down to the office
    In her Japanese car
    With the radio blasting
    She dreams of taking it too far
    But today she'll pay the bills
    She won't think about the thrills
    That pass away
    She's an all American girl
    An all American girl
    And she will live and die in this man's world
    An all American girl
    Her eyes are black as leather
    And her hair is killer red
    How could she keep the baby
    When she can barely keep her head
    She don't owe nobody nothing
    And she ain't on the street
    But these drinks are getting heavy
    And these lips are getting weak
    She don't understand
    Why she can't climb out of the sand
    And break away
    She's an all American girl
    An all American girl
    And she will live and die in this man's world
    An all American girl
    Her lover never came home
    And it's half past three
    Today her best friend told her
    He's HIV
    Something's gotta give somewhere
    Forcing circles into squares
    She keeps pushing on
    She's an all American girl
    An all American girl
    And she will live and die in this man's world
    An all American girl

    Yes I Am
    Lyrics

    Yes I Am

    In these days and these hours of fury
    When the darkness and answers are thin
    Lovers come and check out in a hurry
    Shallow and hollow again
    Come lay your body beside me
    To dream to sleep with the lamb
    To the question your eyes seem to send
    Am I your passion your promise your end
    I say I am
    Yes I am
    Your passion your promise your end
    Yes I am
    Barring divine intervention
    There is nothing between you and I
    And if I carelessly forgot to mention
    Your body your power can sanctify
    Come feed your hunger your thirst
    Lay it down the beast will die
    You can question my heart once again
    Am I your passion your promise your end
    I say I am
    Yes I am
    Your passion your promise your end
    Yes I am

    Resist
    Lyrics

    Resist

    The sign says do not enter
    No trespassing allowed
    With visions of redemption
    I walk against the crowd
    The sun is white with envy
    Confusion on the ground
    Breathing soft and holy
    Temptation's only sound
    A demon's day in madness kissed
    I swear I never had it like this
    Forbidden yet I cannot resist
    Shocked in silent trances
    Our eyes search just to know
    What makes flesh and body hunger
    For another burning soul
    Conscience quiet pleading
    In the corner of my eye
    But seeing is believing
    All consequences fly
    A demon's day in madness kissed
    I swear I never had it like this
    Forbidden yet I cannot resist
    With fever I persist
    The rages of your kiss
    My reckless heart in fist
    And I cannot resist
    A demon's day in madness kissed
    I swear I never had it like this
    Forbidden yet I cannot resist

    Ruins
    Lyrics

    Ruins

    Don't try to call
    There are some bridges that burn
    Beyond recognition beyond repair
    Don't say you've changed
    There are some forces that turn
    Beyond recollection beyond my stare
    When I feel the cold in the dark
    I know you're there
    Long ago I was a woman in pain
    A woman in need
    I ran to you
    Long ago I did not understand
    You were making me bleed
    I ran to you
    When I feel the cold in the dark
    I know what you do
    I will crawl through my past
    Over stones blood and glass
    In the ruins
    Reaching under the fence
    As I try to make sense
    In the ruins
    I know your heart has held its own fear
    It's perfectly clear
    What they did to you
    In my heart it's the screaming I hear
    I won't let them come near
    Since my love knew you
    When I feel the cold in the dark
    I remember you
    I will crawl through my past
    Over stones blood and glass
    In the ruins
    Reaching under the fence
    As I try to make sense
    In the ruins
    Night after night
    I am carving it out
    I will carry it down to the waterside
    Night after night
    I am hearing the sound
    Of wings that come beating
    I will not hide
    When I feel the cold in the dark
    I will know why
    I will crawl through my past
    Over stones blood and glass
    In the ruins
    Reaching under the fence
    As I try to make sense
    In the ruins
    But if I am to heal
    I must first learn to feel
    In the ruins
    I will crawl

    Talking To My Angel
    Lyrics

    Talking To My Angel

    Don't be afraid
    Close your eyes
    Lay it all down
    Don't you cry
    Can't you see I'm going
    Where I can see the sun rise
    I've been talking to my angel
    And he said that it's alright
    I've always had to run
    I don't know just why
    Desire slowly smoking
    Under the midwest sky
    There's something waiting out there
    That says I've got to try
    I've been talking to my angel
    And he said that it's alright
    This town thinks I'm crazy
    They just think I'm strange
    Sometimes they want to own me
    Sometimes they wish I'd change
    But I can feel the thunder
    Underneath my feet
    I sold my soul for freedom
    It's lonely but it's sweet
    Don't be afraid
    Close your eyes
    Lay it all down
    Don't you cry
    Can't you see I'm going
    Where I can see the sun rise
    I've been talking to my angel
    And he said that it's alright

    Ain't It Heavy
    Lyrics

    Ain't It Heavy

    Sometimes I know that it's never enough
    Survival is fine but satisfaction is rough
    I try with an angel tonight
    Spread these wings and I'm on for the ride
    Cruise these streets where my innocence hides
    There's some things you can't deny
    What is it about this human condition
    I need some kind of promise
    Some kind of submission tonight
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    I'm feelin' kinda loose, I'm feelin' kinda mean
    I've been feeling kinda wild since I turned seventeen
    Or, is it madness
    Tell me where can a woman find any kind of peace
    When does the fury and the agony cease
    How long have I got to say please
    There's a hole in my jeans I only wanted to fade
    I've been ripping out seams
    Somebody else made tonight
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    Heavy
    Ain't it heavy
    Ain't the night heavy
    So heavy
    This woman needs
    This woman needs some
    please,
    please, please, is never enough
    hm, you feel so, feel so
    feels, so, so
    tonight, tonight
    yeah
    feels so heavy
    heavy, heavy
    oh so heavy
    this night is so
    night is so hard
    it's so heavy
    the night heavy
    come on, come on
    come on
    so heavy

    2001
    Lyrics

    2001

    Well I've been looking
    Looking for an answer
    Somebody promised me one
    And I've been waiting
    Waiting for the chance
    Well somebody said it would come
    Wake me up when we hit 2001
    I've been talking
    Talking to the maker
    Of the compromise
    They said she's fine
    Call the undertaker
    You shouldn't look surprised
    Wake me up when we hit 2001
    It's barely alive with a story at five
    So turn your video on
    We live in these years dark age of fear
    Meet me in 2001
    I saw my sister
    Saw the ones who twist her
    A social suicide
    If looks could kill
    Each and every cheap thrill
    Could be a homicide
    Wake me up when we hit 2001
    It's barely alive with a story at five
    So turn your video on
    We live in these years dark age of fear
    Meet me in 2001
    I've searching
    Searching for a reason
    To either fight or fly
    Either way patriot or treason
    It's gonna be one long hard ride
    Wake me up when we hit 2001

    Dance Without Sleeping
    Lyrics

    Dance Without Sleeping

    I don't want to talk about it
    I've done enough I think
    I don't want to spend more money
    Don't want another drink
    I would scratch out all the images
    If I had the chance
    Don't ask me what I'm thinking
    Can't you see I only want to dance
    Dance without sleeping
    Dance without fear
    Dance without senses no message I hear
    Dance without sleeping
    Dance till I'm numb
    Dance till I think I can overcome
    Walking on the edge of rage and understanding
    Between the black and the white
    This child is so angry
    Alone here tonight
    Alarming desperation
    Leads me to believe
    With all my shields and protection
    It's only me I deceive
    Dance without sleeping
    Dance without fear
    Dance without senses no message I hear
    Dance without sleeping
    Dance till I'm numb
    Dance till I think I can overcome
    The eyes on a magazine
    The voice on the radio
    The kiss on the movie screen
    This is the story I know
    Fathers hold on and they never go
    Mothers hold on and they never go
    Lovers hold on and they never go
    Lovers they come and they never go
    Dance without sleeping
    Dance without fear
    Dance without senses no message I hear
    Dance without sleeping
    Dance till I'm numb
    Dance till I think I can overcome

    Place Your Hand
    Lyrics

    Place Your Hand

    I've an image in my pocket
    Of some dark demon
    That temptation brought to life
    And it chokes all of my breath out
    I'm scratching and screaming'
    'Til morning comes to night
    Place your hand
    My body will decide
    Place your hand
    My anger will subside
    There are fragments of possessions
    Shards of past relations
    Splintering my skin
    A fear so black and hollow
    It can suffocate creation
    And refuse to let you in
    Place your hand
    My body will decide
    Place your hand
    My anger will subside
    And they speak to me like prophets in my dreams
    Speak to me like prophets in my dreams
    Shouting like prophets in my dreams
    Sometimes I think it's easy
    Too easy for the living
    To receive the promised land
    Can flesh provide the answer
    The reaction for sensation
    Justify your hand
    Place your hand
    My body will decide
    Place your hand
    My anger will subside

    Must Be Crazy For Me
    Lyrics

    Must Be Crazy For Me

    You tell me not to call you up
    Cause it ties you down
    Don't tell your friends
    You've been hangin' round
    You must be crazy for me
    You say you'll see me once or twice
    Every week or two
    There's more important things
    That you've got to do
    You must be crazy for me
    Cause when I kissed you last night
    In my own backyard
    You ran so fast
    And you fought so hard
    You must be crazy for me
    You must be crazy for me
    You don't like my hair
    You don't like my car
    You don't like my friends
    You met at the bar
    You must be crazy for me
    I see you shake you head
    And you roll your eyes
    Your firm remark
    To remove my thigh
    You must be crazy for me
    Cause when I kissed you last night
    In my own backyard
    You ran so fast
    And you fought so hard
    You must be crazy for me
    You must be crazy for me
    Do not expect you to wait
    Do not expect you to phone
    Do not expect anything
    When I catch you alone
    You must be crazy for me
    Cause when I kissed you last night
    In my own backyard
    You ran so fast
    And you fought so hard
    You must be crazy for me
    You must be crazy for me

    Meet Me In The Back
    Lyrics

    Meet Me In The Back

    Meet me in the back
    Don't make me wait too long
    I could change my mind
    And tell you that it's wrong
    So meet me in the back
    Where the light don't shine
    First show me yours
    Maybe I'll show you mine
    My hands are shaking
    My heart is beating fast
    Is love worth making
    When it can never last
    Meet me in the back
    Don't make me wait too long
    I could change my mind
    And tell you that it's wrong
    So meet me in the back
    Where the light don't shine
    First show me yours
    Maybe I'll show you mine
    I'm gonna give directions
    I'm gonna take it slow
    But if I don't get protection
    I will just say no
    Meet me in the back
    Don't make me wait too long
    I could change my mind
    And tell you that it's wrong
    So meet me in the back
    Where the light don't shine
    First show me yours
    Maybe I'll show you mine
    I can hear the music
    Pounding through the walls
    And to the beat of dancing
    I will give you all
    Meet me in the back
    Don't make me wait too long
    I could change my mind
    And tell you that it's wrong
    So meet me in the back
    Where the light don't shine
    First show me yours
    Maybe I'll show you mine

    The Boy Feels Strange
    Lyrics

    The Boy Feels Strange

    And he looks at me in wonder
    And he looks at me in fear
    Wrestling with his anger
    His pride and stony tears
    To place me in his life
    Will be hard and slow
    Does he want it need it
    I might never know
    The boy feels strange
    Oh the boy has changed
    Looking from my tower
    I can see his fortress strong
    Surrounded by his army
    Where do I belong
    Does he ever find the answers
    In the cars as they go by
    Does he ever want to ask me why
    The boy feels strange
    Oh the boy has changed
    And he's seen with all the women
    Who think that he's a god
    And he blesses whom he pleases
    Holding fast to the facade
    I want to reach out and believe him
    Through his miles and miles of pain
    But lately when I touch him
    The boy feel strange
    And he speaks to me of business
    When I ask him how he's been
    Keeps me at a distance
    Never getting under the skin
    Can he make a new beginning
    Does he even want to try
    Or will he only let it die
    The boy feels strange
    Oh the boy has changed

    Keep It Precious
    Lyrics

    Keep It Precious

    You brought me to trust you brought me to tears
    In one tender touch the pain disappears
    I have been to the sword seen it come seen it die
    As we enter the dark I beseech you to try
    In prophecy all good things must end
    So take care my love my friend
    Keep it precious
    Keep it precious
    This yielding is fine this promise rare
    One day at a time we've agreed to dare
    Holding you tight with wide open arms
    I'm letting you go no stranger to harm
    Go on ride your way do not break or bend
    Just take care my love my friend
    Keep it precious
    Keep it precious
    And the wonder let the wonder never cease
    And the madness of the pleasure and ecstasy
    Danger believing me
    Wounding and healing me please
    Keep it precious
    I believe in your eyes I believe in your fate
    I believe we can fly on the wings we create
    A voice from behind calls up anger and fear
    We can silence that scream it's simple and clear
    Nothing must die only if failed to mend
    So take care my love my friend
    Keep it precious

    The Letting Go
    Lyrics

    The Letting Go

    I came here to let you know
    The letting go
    Has taken place
    I have held the winter's son
    Become one
    Set my pace
    Isn't that what we wanted all along
    Freedom like a stone
    But I can say goodbye
    Now that the passion's died
    Still it comes so slow
    The letting go
    Piece by piece I take apart
    This complicated heart
    And I hope to find
    Something I can prove is real
    I can feel is truth
    I can say is mine
    That's all I ever wanted to be
    The closer that I got
    The further I could see
    But when lovers change
    And the night feels strange
    We choose our road
    The letting go
    I came here to let you know
    The letting go
    Has taken place

    It's For You
    Lyrics

    It's For You

    Hey you watching as this light bleeds all over me
    Shadows rise and fall listen as I call is this reality
    I will be with you tonight
    and tomorrow be 1,000 miles away
    I will be with you tonight
    I will be with you as long as you say stay
    One little piece of my soul
    One little piece of my whole life
    I give to you
    Take it now
    I'm with you
    I'm not with my lover
    It's not for another broken heart
    It's for you
    Not just for some shattered dream I once knew
    It's for you
    It's for you
    Hey you looking through a mirror to a cage
    I'll take you away this miracle you pray for on the stage
    I will be with you tonight
    I will be with you 1,000 miles away
    I will never leave
    Inside of you a piece of me will stay
    One little piece of my soul
    One little piece of my whole life
    I give to you
    Take it now
    I'm with you
    I'm not with my lover
    It's not for another broken heart
    It's for you
    Not just for some shattered dream I once knew
    It's for you
    It's for you
    Come closer now
    I'm with you
    I'm not with my lover
    It's not for another broken heart
    It's for you
    Not just for some shattered dream I once knew
    It's for you
    It's for you

    Similar Features
    Lyrics

    Similar Features

    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    You never had to wait for nothing in your life
    I guess wanting me must have been a steel blue knife
    And when night after night the scent of passion would linger
    You had to have the jewels wrapped around your finger
    Now you keep running down the road in your midnight state of mind
    Curiosity kills if you can't read the signs
    Go on and close your eyes, imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    Dancing with the wall made you bitter and sweet
    There ain't much you can do when they just lay it at your feet
    But you could tell by the song I wanted to be the one
    Did you listen again when the damage was done
    Now the paint's still wet in your do-it-by-number dream
    Are you gonna tell me how it felt, will you tell me what it means
    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    Was it want with no desire?
    Was it smoke with no fire?
    Did I say it doesn't rip me apart?
    I lied
    I'm sorry dear my hands are tied
    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    Close your eyes, imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you
    It shouldn't bother you
    Hey, hey, hey
    It shouldn't bother you
    Hey, hey, hey
    It shouldn't bother you
    Shouldn't bother you

    Chrome Plated Heart
    Lyrics

    Chrome Plated Heart

    I got a chrome-plated heart
    I got wings on these fingers trying to tear it apart
    I got angels crying from up above
    And they got rust in their eyes
    They got rust on their love
    But I have learned to leave no stone unturned
    And keep the wall against my back
    And the love is real as the day is long
    And the night is black
    As black as night
    I got a two dollar stare
    Midas in my touch and Delilah in my hair
    I got bad intentions on the soles of my shoes
    With this red hot fever and these chromium blues
    And I will feel another lovers wheel
    And drive for miles and not look back
    And the love is real as the day is long
    And the night is black
    As black as night
    On my chrome-plated heart
    Wings on these fingers trying to tear it apart
    I got angels crying from up above
    And they got rust in their eyes
    They got rust on their love
    And the only way I know where the train will go
    Is when I'm sleeping on the tracks
    And the love is real as the day is long
    And the night is black
    As black as night
    And the night is black
    As black as night

    Like The Way I Do
    Lyrics

    Like The Way I Do

    Is it so hard to satisfy your senses?
    You found out to love me you have to climb some fences
    Scratching and crawling along the floor to touch you
    And just when it feels right you say you found someone to hold you
    Does she like I do
    Baby tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do
    Like the way I do
    Can I survive all the implications
    Even if I tried could you be less than an addiction
    Don't you think I know there's so many others
    Who would beg steal and lie, fight, kill and die
    Just to hold you, hold you like I do
    Baby tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you
    Like the way I do
    Oh, nobody loves you, like the way I do
    Nobody wants you, like the way I do
    Nobody needs you, like the way I do
    Nobody aches, nobody aches just to hold you
    Like the way I do
    No, no, no
    Tell me does she love you like the way I love you
    Does she stimulate you, attract and captivate you
    Tell me does she miss you, existing just to kiss you
    Like the way I do
    Oh, tell me does she want you, infatuate and haunt you
    Does she know just how to shock and electrify and rock you
    Does she inject you, seduce you and affect you, baby
    Like the way I do
    No, like the way I do
    Oh, ho, yeah

    Precious Pain
    Lyrics

    Precious Pain

    Everybody's got a hunger
    No matter where they are
    Everybody clings to their own fear
    Everybody hides some scar
    Precious pain
    Empty and cold but it keeps me alive
    I gave it my soul so that I could survive
    Keeping me safe in these chains
    Precious pain
    Everybody's got a reason
    To abandon their plan
    How can I think of tomorrow
    With my sorrow in hand
    Precious pain
    Empty and cold but it keeps me alive
    I gave it my soul so that I could survive
    Keeping me safe in these chains
    Precious pain
    Each road that I walk down
    Reminds me of you
    This whole town is haunted
    There'll never be anything new
    Precious pain
    Empty and cold but it keeps me alive
    I gave it my soul so that I could survive
    Keeping me safe in these chains
    Precious pain

    Don't Need You
    Lyrics

    Don't Need You

    I had a dream late last night
    The water was running low
    And my fields were on fire, burning my sky
    My body was moving slow
    And when I awoke I tasted the sweat of desire in my mouth
    And I realized my heart had abducted my mind
    And they were last seen headed south
    Now I can't sleep I'm so wired
    And I find myself screaming out
    Don't you need don't you want
    Can't you taste it when you're alone
    Don't you cry don't you feel
    Sometimes I wonder if you are real
    Don't you bleed
    Don't you need
    There's no quenching the thirst there's no relief
    For the hungry at heart
    And as far as you're concerned I'm just a thief
    Entertaining in the dark
    But it's you that holds the cards
    Now that the joker is wild
    Don't you want to lay it down
    And feel your skin against the ground
    Don't you want to ride the storm
    And then sleep inside the calm
    Don't you want to get that high
    Don't you want to be satisfied
    Well if you don't want it from me
    Don't you need
    I had a dream late last night
    The water was running low
    And my fields were on fire burning my sky
    How was I to know
    That I burn every night in my dreams
    And only morning can set me free
    Don't you need don't you want
    Can't you taste it when you're alone
    Don't you cry don't you feel
    Sometimes I wonder if you are real
    Don't you bleed
    Don't you need

    The Late September Dogs
    Lyrics

    The Late September Dogs

    Just outside my window I hear the late September dogs
    And I understand their warning I understand their song
    Since you left I feel the change in the air
    And night after night I'm searching for mercy everywhere
    So I wake in the street and I call out your name
    I shout to the sky please
    Come on let it rain
    Let it rain down on me
    Let the rain touch my hands
    Let the rain set me free
    Let it rain down on me
    Silence is the steel that pierces and cuts me to the bone
    In dreams the hand that touches you is mine and mine alone
    Cruel is the light is the morning shining down on me
    Hours with the Devil to understand just what you need
    So I wake in the street and I call out your name
    Shout to the sky come on
    Come on let it rain
    Let it rain down on me
    Let the rain fill my eyes
    Let the rain set me free
    Let it rain down on me
    Just inside the distance I hear the late September dogs
    And so I beg for sleep the child who walked before she crawled
    Damn my soul that remembers and clutches to this pain
    The spear in your side is me
    Come on let it rain
    Let it rain down on me
    Let the rain touch my hands
    Let the rain set me free
    Let it rain down on me

    Occasionally
    Lyrics

    Occasionally

    I saw you with your new friends
    You wear them so well
    Broken shoes and loose ends
    Gee you look swell
    Me I'm drinking my coffee
    And I'm smoking cigarettes
    I'm a deputy of habit
    I just can't forget
    I'm only lonely when I'm driving in my car
    I'm only lonely after dark
    I'm only lonely when I watch my tv
    I'm only lonely occasionally
    I saw you with your envoy
    A consenting adult
    Technique in moderation
    But vogue to the cult
    Me I've got my strangers
    To exile in the night
    I'm guess I'm just addicted
    To the pain of delight
    I'm only lonely when I'm driving in my car
    I'm only lonely after dark
    I'm only lonely when I watch my tv
    I'm only lonely occasionally
    Occasionally
    Occasionally

    Watching You
    Lyrics

    Watching You

    That's a good question
    Why am I standing out here alone
    I guess I don't know enough to come in from the rain
    I was watching your window
    From here below
    I think I just might stay here all day
    Cause I gotta do something
    If I can't love you
    I don't want to love you
    If I can't hold you
    I don't want to be thinking of you
    And if you don't want me
    I don't want to want you
    And if you won't see me
    I don't know what to do
    But oh keep watching you
    Until I see right through
    Oh I keep watching you
    You could throw me down a cigarette
    I smoked my last one quite a while ago
    No, I gave it to the man that swore he had no need
    You know sometimes if I listen real close
    I can hear the dark side of the moon
    And there's always yesterday's Times if I care to read
    And I gotta do something
    If I can't love you
    I don't want to love you
    If I can't hold you
    I don't want to be thinking of you
    And if you don't want me
    I don't want to want you
    And if you won't see me
    I don't know what to do
    But oh keep watching you
    Until I see right through
    Oh I keep watching you
    Sure I'm alright
    No I'm not very cold
    Every now and then I can feel the subway heat
    So go on inside
    I'll leave you alone
    Anyway Bogart's on in the window down the street
    And I gotta do something
    If I can't love you
    I don't want to love you
    If I can't hold you
    I don't want to be thinking of you
    And if you don't want me
    I don't want to want you
    And if you won't see me
    I don't know what to do
    But oh keep watching you
    Until I see right through
    Oh I keep watching you

    Bring Me Some Water
    Lyrics

    Bring Me Some Water

    Tonight I feel so weak
    But all in love is fair
    I turn the other cheek
    And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air
    And I know you're only human
    And I haven't got talking room
    But tonight while I'm making excuses
    Some other woman is making love to you
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
    Will this aching pass
    Will this night be through
    Wanna hear the breaking glass
    I only feel the steel of the red hot truth
    And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
    I need some insanity that temporary kind
    Tell me how will I ever be the same
    When I know that that woman is whispering your name
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    And I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
    Oh-huh,oh yeah
    Got my soul
    Uh-huh, ooh yeah
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see I'm burning alive
    Can't you see my baby's got another lover
    And I don't know how I'm gonna survive
    Somebody bring me some water
    Can't you see it's out of control
    Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
    But tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
    Oh yeah, oh, oh
    Baby's got my heart, my baby's got my mind
    Tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul

    I Want You
    Lyrics

    I Want You

    I can see your darkened eyes
    Across the room turn into lies and laughter
    And asking for my name again
    Then introduced as just a friend
    Well it was no fantasy the passion burned
    You touched me the evening turned to midnight
    I can't forget the naked trust
    One quenchless night of shaking lust and fire
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you
    Since that night I'm not the same
    Desire breeds an ugly stain inside me
    Satisfaction never comes
    It's always dark and yet I still run
    Even when I close my eyes
    You torture me with shameless sighs seduction
    Walking in a chilling sweat
    Pounding heart inside my chest I'm screaming
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you
    With your heart in your fist
    You laugh at my situation
    Tell me is it blood you want
    Then take me strip me cut me see I'm bleeding
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you
    I want you

    No Souvenirs
    Lyrics

    No Souvenirs

    Hello, hello this is Romeo
    Calling from a jackpot telephone
    Shame, shame, but I love your name
    And the way you make the buffalo roam
    Oh, oh, oh, fly, fly I guess this is goodbye
    Oh you packed up your heart
    And you left no souvenirs
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    Once, twice I thought it might be nice
    To come into your kitchen and play
    Cool, cool just a crazy fool
    I never saw it any other way
    Oh, oh, oh, wait, wait I guess I'm just too late
    Oh you made up your mind
    Love shouldn't be so hard
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now, hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Oh brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    No shirts, no shoes
    No jackets, no blues
    You car's for sale
    You forward your mail
    You're growing your hair
    You don't want to know where
    I'm calling you from
    Or how come
    But if you want me you can call me
    In the night you know where I'll be
    Broken lover you can touch me
    In the dark the innocent can't see
    You lock it up now hide the key
    It would mean surrender to let me see
    Brave, brave soldier keep it under cover
    You fell alone like no other lover
    Burn the pictures break the records
    Run far away to a northern town
    Sell your fear and leave me standing here
    With no souvenirs
    Yeah, yeah
    Hello, hello, this is Romeo

    Lyrics

    Brave And Crazy

    If I could have my way
    I'd be sleeping in the alley
    On a couch with a friend and a bottle of gin
    If I could have my way
    I'd be runnin' with the circus
    I would be taming all the lions
    There'd be no denying I was brave and crazy
    If I could have my way
    I wouldn't be dreaming, scheming, screaming
    Oh, what am I gonna do
    About you
    I wishes were horses
    This beggar would ride
    I'd have my cake and eat it
    With a little on the side
    I'd never want for money
    I'd never want for friends
    I wouldn't have to make excuses for the shape that I'm in
    Shaking and crazy
    Before I saw your eyes
    I was in control of my soul on the whole
    Oh, what am I gonna do
    About you
    Cool as a rule
    I wouldn't play nobody's fool
    But I keep on talking
    Made in the shade
    I had a perfect cue to fade
    But I keep on walking
    If I could have my way
    I'd check out right now
    I'd say out to lunch honey thanks a bunch
    It wouldn't work out anyhow
    But this desire's too much
    It's rented out my brain
    It's showing previews of your body
    Driving me insane
    And that's crazy
    So all that I can do
    Is to beg, plead, won't you tell me please
    What am I gonna do
    About you

    You Used To Love To Dance
    Lyrics

    You Used To Love To Dance

    Lying in a city night
    A million fingers tingling my skin
    Out thee in the sea tonight
    I thought I saw you clutching your sin
    You rolled me over long ago
    And told me you were strong enough to go
    You needed more than this lover's dream
    You need the steel and the concrete beams in your life
    In your life
    We laughed and drank in the jukebox light
    And we tore the rug in that downtown dive
    Every Saturday night
    For fifty cents we'd dance all night long
    And each new tune we said that's our song
    Oh it felt so right
    Well ecstasy ain't free
    But compromise is chance
    I remember how
    You used to love to dance
    They told me you have found your love
    You moved in locked up and put out your blues
    Well all God's children got to grow up
    And play house make vows to hang up their shoes
    Do you sit and talk over coffee cups
    Do headline mornings satisfy and fill you up
    I kept your eyes and your cigarette kiss
    You couldn't keep the lies the adrenalin bliss in your life
    In your life
    We laughed and drank in the jukebox light
    And we tore the rug in that downtown dive
    Every Saturday night
    For fifty cents we'd dance all night long
    And each new tune we said that's our song
    Oh it felt so right
    Well ecstasy ain't free
    But compromise is chance
    I remember how
    You used to love to dance
    I'm gonna go out tonight
    I'm gonna drive up to the hill
    I'm gonna dive on into those city lights
    And I'm gonna dance, dance
    Dance till I get my fill
    We laughed and drank in the jukebox light
    And we tore the rug in that downtown dive
    Every Saturday night
    For fifty cents we'd dance all night long
    And each new tune we said that's our song
    Oh it felt so right
    Well ecstasy ain't free
    But compromise is chance
    I remember how
    You used to love to dance

    The Angels
    Lyrics

    The Angels

    Sometimes I feel like an innocent one
    To deserve this fate what I have I ever done
    I know that I made all the rules
    But time can even change the hopeless ways of fools
    I love you tonight like I did yesterday
    I won't think of tomorrow or the price I pay
    I drink from the well my soul is dry
    I never know why
    All I want is for your love to be all mine
    But the angels won't have it
    All I want is just a little peace of mind
    But the angels won't have it
    I thought I had a piece of my soul left to sell
    I guess it's just as well
    'Cause the angels won't have it
    Who's looking after this see-through heart
    Someone up there isn't doing their part
    Oh Cupid you foolish boy
    You should take better aim with your brand new toy
    I love you tonight like I did yesterday
    I don't think of tomorrow or the price I pay
    I drink from the well my soul is dry
    I never know why
    All I want is for your love to be all mine
    But the angels won't have it
    All I want is just a little peace of mind
    But the angels won't have it
    I thought I had a piece of my soul left to sell
    I guess it's just as well
    'Cause the angels won't have it
    So if I die before I wake
    The innocent one whose heart could never break
    Lift me up take me out of this bed
    Watching the angels shake their heads
    Don't feel sorry for me baby honey don't you cry
    You can sell all of my clothes you will forget me by and by
    I'll be riding that train I'll be singing that song
    But I won't be gone for long
    'Cause the angels won't have it
    All I want is for your love to be all mine
    But the angels won't have it
    All I want is just a little peace of mind
    But the angels won't have it
    I thought I had a piece of my soul left to sell
    I guess it's just as well
    'Cause the angels won't have it

    You Can Sleep While I Drive
    Lyrics

    You Can Sleep While I Drive

    Come on baby let's get out of this town
    I got a full tank of gas with the top rolled down
    There's a chill in my bones
    I don't want to be left alone
    So baby you can sleep while I drive
    I'll pack my bag and load up my guitar
    In my pocket I'll carry my harp
    I got some money I saved
    Enough to get underway
    And baby you can sleep while I drive
    We'll go thorough Tucson up to Santa Fe
    And Barbara in Nashville says we're welcome to stay
    I'll buy you glasses in Texas a hat from New Orleans
    And in the morning you can tell me your dreams
    You know I've seen it before
    This mist that covers your eyes
    You've been looking for something
    That's not in your life
    My intentions are true
    Won't you take me with you
    And baby you can sleep while I drive
    Oh is it other arms you want to
    Hold you the stranger
    The lover you're free
    Can't you get that with me

    Testify
    Lyrics

    Testify

    Morning's hard coffee's cold
    Pretending that the days mean more than getting old
    Stale headlines other drenched in pride
    Marching to their drum with fear standing beside
    But if I close my eyes and throw back my head
    I can see his face and I hear the words he said
    And my memories ache and my senses burn
    Did he dream too late will we ever learn
    I, I want to testify
    My love still lives and breathes
    And my soul is screaming why
    The thoughts won't let me sleep
    Don't let hearts break
    And don't let children cry
    Before it gets too late
    I want to testify
    I take what's said as my daily dread
    I turn the page and I turn my head
    I pick I choose on the evening news
    Cause by cause they fight and one by one they lose
    Must I live my days in these concrete ways
    Will the fire break through this smokey haze
    And I swear tonight I'm gonna find that place
    It's not the love that dies but the understanding ways
    I, I want to testify
    My love still lives and breathes
    And my soul is screaming why
    The thoughts won't let me sleep
    Don't let hearts break
    And don't let children cry
    Before it gets too late
    I want to testify
    Rip through the wire that screens in my window
    Throw open the shade that covers my mind
    I'm going to touch I've got to believe
    The bell tolls for me
    I, I want to testify
    My love still lives and breathes
    And my soul is screaming why
    The thoughts won't let me sleep
    Don't let hearts break
    And don't let children cry
    Before it gets too late
    I want to testify

    Let Me Go
    Lyrics

    Let Me Go

    Am I the snake inside your garden
    The sugar in your tea
    The knock upon your back door
    The twist that turns your key
    Am I the sweat you feel on your head
    The shadow on your face
    The tune inside your head that put you here in the first place
    Well I don't want to be
    I don't want to be
    I don't want to be your sweet temptation
    I don't want to be your new sensation
    It's just a delicate distraction
    With just a hint of satisfaction
    Look me in the eye and let me know
    If you can't love me that let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go
    Do you try to stay suspended
    In your deepest fantasy
    After night has ended
    The scent of mystery
    The power of suggestion
    Tangles up your soul
    A neutral state between love and hate
    Is bound to take its toll
    Well I don't think you know
    I don't think you know
    I don't think you know about the screaming
    You don't understand the meaning
    You could trade it in for laughter
    To keep your happy ever after
    Look me in the eye and let me know
    If you can't love me then let me go
    Let me go
    Let me go
    Baby in your ivory tower
    Do you sleep tight dream fight
    Baby does it wet your appetite
    Maybe in your darkest hour
    Am I the keeper of your beast
    Well I don't want to be
    I don't want to be
    So let me go
    Let me go

    By Back Door
    Lyrics

    By Back Door

    When I was a child
    I dreamed like a child of wonder
    With my back in the grass
    My eyes to the sky to see
    I believed in the stars
    I knew they cast a spell that I was under
    With my fingers in the dirt
    I was part of the earth
    Every living thing was part of me
    But it's gone, it's gone
    It's gone, it's gone, gone
    I can't feel it
    I can't feel it
    Must've found a way out my back door
    Must've run away out my back door
    Because it's gone, gone, gone
    Then I fell in love
    Love gave me a shot of pure desire
    There was nothing else like this
    This unimagined bliss this ecstasy
    Deep inside the night
    I believed I saw the light ignite a fire
    And it burned into the dark
    It burned deep inside my heart
    I thought it would burn eternally
    But it's gone, it's gone
    It's gone, it's gone, gone
    I can't feel it
    I can't feel it
    Must've found a way out my back door
    Must've run away out my back door
    Because it's gone, gone, gone

    Lyrics

    Skin Deep

    I ain't asking you to keep no secrets
    My reputation already shot
    I ain't asking you to commit treason
    Just tell me if you like it or not
    Like it or not baby that's they way I want it to be
    Don't give your heart and soul
    My love is only skin deep
    I'll give you my time and money
    I'll give you somewhere to sleep
    But don't ask me for my heart and soul
    My love is only skin deep
    My love is only skin deep
    My love is only skin deep
    I ain't looking for no blue-eyed lover
    That's what stole my baby away
    I can see your eyes are darker than midnight
    And that's the time that I want to play
    I want to play baby that's they way I want it to be
    Don't give me your heart and soul
    My love is only skin deep
    I'll give you my time and money
    I'll give you somewhere to sleep
    But don't ask me for my heart and soul
    My love is only skin deep
    My love is only skin deep
    My love is only skin deep

    Lyrics

    Royal Station 4/16

    It's so hard to listen to these trains
    Outside my window here it comes again
    And it's calling me begging me
    Follow me down the track
    And it moans so dark and low
    Baby ain't comin' back
    I refuse to believe
    It could happen to me and you
    It's lonesome and it's hard and it's true
    It got this whiskey to take care of my lips
    I got these long cool steel strings
    At my fingertips
    I ain't got nothing to soothe my aching soul
    Except this screeching and screaming iron
    To tell me where I ought to go
    I refuse to believe
    It could happen to me and you
    It's lonesome and it's hard and it's true
    I hear the train sigh
    And idle down below
    Why your love is so sweet and while
    Is something I'll never know
    It sounds like crying
    It sounds like letting go
    Breathing and lying
    Sinking and dying slow
    And I watch from my window
    Touching the cold glass sky
    As the train rolls down the track
    I say goodbye
