Baby I Need Your Love

I had too much to dream, babe
Let's do it again
That's what my baby made for
Baby, be my friend
 
When girls will stick together
They're talking about boys
What does it take to win your love?
Don't wanna be your toy
 
Baby, I need your love
Never give you up for a one-night shot
Baby, you are so hot
Never give you up for a one-night love
 
Meet me in another world, my baby
In a world, a world of love
Meet me in another world, and maybe
I'm not a one-night shot
 
Come step inside my rainbow
Deep - and if you can
I'll give you all, I'll be your
Woman behind the man
 
Whenever you're away, love
I make it through the night
What does it take to win your love?
Oh baby, hold me tight
 
Baby, I need your love
Never give you up for a one-night shot
Baby, you are so hot
Never give you up for a one-night love
 
Meet me in another world, my baby
In a world, a world of love
Meet me in another world, and maybe
I'm not a one-night shot
 
Baby, I need your love
Never give you up for a one-night shot
Baby, you are so hot
Never give you up for a one-night love
 

never is a long time

You build it up and teared it down
There's no reason to follow you
You left the song without a sound
You left the story I made for you
Softly angels bow and cry
In the stillness of the night
 
Never is a long time, goodbye
No answers for the asking
It's a long time, goodbye
No mercy for the aching
It's a long time
Oh I see no light on the forsaken
Never is a long time, goodbye
Let's spend the night
When this dream has come to an end
 
Sometimes you laugh
Sometimes you cry
And yes, I've cried over you
You left me blind in paradise
You left me hungering for the touch of you
Snow white angels run and hide
In the blackness of the night
 
Never is a long time, goodbye
No answers for the asking
It's a long time, goodbye
No mercy for the aching
It's a long time
Oh I see no light on the forsaken
Never is a long time, goodbye
Let's spend the night
When this dream has come to an end
 

Acapulco

Je me souviendrai d'Acapulco
Et j'entendrai comme un écho
Cette musique
Et sous d'autres cieux
Loin du paradis
Que l'on trouve ici
 
Je regretterai la volupté
L'enchantement des nuits d'été
Du Pacifique
Tous les jours heureux
Dont le souvenir
Ne saurait mourir
 
Quand la chanson du vent
Se mêle doucement
Au bruit de l'océan
De ces deux mélodies
Naît une symphonie
Que jamais on oublie
 
Je me souviendrai d'Acapulco
Et quand voguera mon bateau
Loin du Mexique
Je n'aurai bientôt
Plus qu'un seul désir
C'est d'y revenir
 
Pays, pays d'amour
Depuis le premier jour
J'ai retrouvé par toi
Le bonheur et la joie
 
Je me souviendrai d'Acapulco
Et j'entendrai comme un écho
Cette musique
Et sous d'autres cieux
Loin du paradis
Que l'on trouve ici
 
Je regretterai la volupté
L'enchantement des nuits d'été
Du Pacifique
Tous les jours heureux
Dont le souvenir
Ne saurait mourir
 
Sous le soleil couchant
C'est un ravissement
C'est l'heure des amants
Les fleurs ont des couleurs
Les femmes - une fraîcheur
Qu'elles n'ont pas ailleurs
 
Je me souviendrai d'Acapulco
Et quand voguera mon bateau
Loin du Mexique
Je n'aurai bientôt
Plus qu'un seul désir
C'est d'y revenir
 
Acapulco, Acapulco
 

Jardin d'Andalousie

De lourds parfums tournaient
dans l'air du soir
Jardins d'Andalousie
De chauds reflets dansaient
dans des yeux noirs
brûlants de jalousie
 
Un chant de guitare égrenant
sa mélancolie
parlait d'une enfant
si jolie
que les jets d'eau, de langueur,
pleuraient tout bas
comme ferait un cœur
qu'on oublie
dans les jardins d'Andalousie
 
J'ai pris son cœur
sous vos cieux rouge et or
Jardins d'Andalousie
J'ai pris sa bouche
à l'heure où tu t'endors
Pays de poésie
 
Une humble chapelle
accueillante comme une amie
paressait dans l'ombre endormie
et j'ai prié le Seigneur
qu'il éternise ce jour
où nos cœurs
ont frémi
dans les jardins d'Andalousie
 
A a a a a ...
 

One Eyed, One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater

Well I saw the thing coming out of the sky
It had one long horn and one big eye (Woah!)
I commenced to shaking and I said, oo-wee
It looks like a purple people eater to me
 
It was a one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater
(A one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me
(One-eyed?)
 
Well he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
I said 'Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me.'
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
'I wouldn't eat you cuz your so tough.'
 
It was a one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater
(A one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me
(One horn?)
 
I said, 'Mr. Purple People Eater what's your line?'
He said, 'Eating purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I want to get a job in a rock-n-roll band.'
 
Well bless my soul, rock-n-roll flying purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, under-code flying purple people eater
(We wear short shorts), friendly little purple people eater
What a sight to see (Woah!)
 
And then he swung from a tree and he lit on the ground
And he started to rock, really rocking around
It was a crazy diddy with a swinging tune
Singing, 'bop-bapa-boopa-lapa-loom-bam-boom'
 
Well bless my soul, rock-n-roll flying purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, under-code flying purple people eater
'I like short shorts', flying purple people eater
What a sight to see
(Purple people?)
 
Well he went on his way, and what you know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out and really knocking them dead
Playing rock-n-roll music through the horn in his head
 
'Tequila...'
 

The Pilgrim, Chapter 33

See him wasted on the sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans,
Wearin' yesterday's misfortunes like a smile
Once he had a future full of money, love, and dreams,
Which he spent like they was goin' outta style
And he keeps right on a'changin' for the better or the worse,
Searchin' for a shrine he's never found
Never knowin' if believin' is a blessin' or a curse,
Or if the goin' up was worth the comin' down
 
He's a poet, he's a picker
He's a prophet, he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction,
Takin' ev'ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home.
 
He has tasted good and evil in your bedrooms and your bars,
And he's traded in tomorrow for today
Runnin' from his devils, Lord, and reachin' for the stars,
And losin' all he's loved along the way
But if this world keeps right on turnin' for the better or the worse,
And all he ever gets is older and around
From the rockin' of the cradle to the rollin' of the hearse,
The goin' up was worth the comin' down
 
He's a poet, he's a picker
He's a prophet, he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction,
Takin' ev'ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home.
There's a lotta wrong directions on that lonely way back home
 

Broken Freedom Song

Got a song about a soldier,
Ridin' somewhere on a train
Empty sleeve pinned to his shoulder
And some pills to ease the pain.
Started drinkin' in El Paso,
He was drunk in San Antone,
Tellin' strangers who were sleepin'
How he hated goin' home
 
Just a simple song of freedom,
He was never fightin' for,
No one's listenin' when you need 'em,
Ain't no fun to sing that song no more.
 
Got a song about a sister,
Waitin' somewhere by the phone,
For some man who never missed her,
Ever since he come and gone.
And its harder for a woman,
With a baby on the way,
That's the price of bein' human,
When you're poor enough to pay,
 
So she listens to the freedom,
In the silence at her door
No one's missin' 'til you need 'em
Ain't no fun to sing that song no more
 
Got a song about a Savior,
Lookin' lonesome and afraid,
At a city full of strangers,
And a cross He never made
And He's sadder than He's wiser,
And a longer way from home,
And He wonders why His Father,
Left Him bleeding and alone.
 
Just a broken song of freedom,
And the closing of a door,
No one's missin' 'til you need 'em
Ain't no fun to sing that song no more.
 

They Killed Him

There was a man named Mahatma Ghandi
He would not bow down, he would not fight
He knew the deal was down and dirty
And nothing wrong could make it right away
 
But he knew his duty, and the price he had to pay
Just another holy man who tried to make a stand
MY GOD, THEY KILLED HIM !
 
Another man from Atlanta, Georgia
By the name of Martin Luther King
He shook the land like rolling thunder
And made the bells of freedom ring today
 
With a dream of beauty that they could not burn away
Just another holy man who dared to be a friend
MY GOD, THEY KILLED HIM !
 
The only son of God Almighty
The holy one called Jesus Christ
Healed the lame and fed the hungry
And for his love they took his life away
 
On the road to glory where the story never ends
Just the holy son of man we'll never understand
MY GOD, THEY KILLED HIM !
 
Sing about Mahatma Ghandi
Sing of Martin Luther King
Sing Of Jesus Christ Almighty
And the brothers Kennedy
 

Requiem

[ZOE]
Why should I play this game of pretend?
Remembering through a secondhand sorrow?
Such a great son and wonderful friend
Oh, don't the tears just pour?
 
I could curl up and hide in my room
There in my bed still sobbing tomorrow
I could give in to all of the gloom
But tell me, tell me what for?
 
Why should I have a heavy heart?
Why should I start to break in pieces?
Why should I go and fall apart for you?
 
Why should I play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light?
I will sing no requiem tonight
 
[LARRY]
I gave you the world, you threw it away
Leaving these broken pieces behind you
Everything wasted, nothing to say
So I will sing no requiem
 
[CYNTHIA]
I hear your voice, I feel you near
Within these words I finally find you
And now that I know that you are still here
I will sing no requiem tonight
 
[LARRY & ZOE]
Why should I have a heavy heart?
 
[ZOE]
Why should I say 'I'll keep you with me'?
Why should I go and fall apart for you?
 
Why should I play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light?
(CYNTHIA: I can see your light)
I will sing no requiem tonight
 
'Cause when the villains fall
The kingdom never weeps
No one lights a candle to remember
No, no one mourns at all
They lay them down to sleep
 
So don't tell me that I didn't have it right
Don't tell me that it wasn't black and white
After all you put me through
Don't say it wasn't true
That you were not the monster that I knew
 
Cause I cannot play the grieving girl and lie
Saying that I miss you
And that my world has gone dark without your light
 
[LARRY]
I will sing no requiem
 
[CYNTHIA]
I will sing no requiem
 
[ZOE]
I will sing no requiem tonight
 

Third rock from the sun

She walks into Smokey's one hip at a time
Like a broken field runner slippin' through the lines
He likes the way she looks so he calls a little wife
says don't wait up for me, I'll be workin late tonight.
Wife hangs up the phone bursts into tears
calls her sister up and cries get over here.
 
Sister tells her boyfriend be back in awhile
boyfriend wants a beer, the store is just a mile.
Leaves the motor runnin' he'll only be a minute,
his car drives away with teenagers in it.
Driver tells his buddies, got one life to live
they scream into the night, lets get it over with.
 
Cause and effect, chain of events,
All of the chaos makes perfect sense,
When we're spinnin' round, things come undone.
Welcome to the earth, third rock from the sun.
 
The kid guns the gas, car starts to swerve
Heads for a semi-truck, jumps the curb
Truck hits a bigboy in the Shoney's parking lot
Flies through the air, takes out the bank clock
Clock strikes a light pole, transformer sparks
lines go down, town goes dark.
 
Waitress calls the cops says she saw it all
swears a giant alien has landed at the mall
Cops ring up the mayor says there's panic in the street,
hate to wake you up but we cant find the chief,
mayor says use your head, if he ain't in his car
he's hiding from his wife, down at Smokey's bar
 
Cause and effect, chain of events,
All of the chaos makes perfect sense,
When we're spinnin' round, things come undone.
Welcome to the earth, third rock from the sun. (x2)
 
Welcome to Earth third rock from the sun. (x3)
 

Reconcile

If we were in this room again
I could shape the light this way
Temper would build me back
Legs left belonged again
There is a breath that's left
Once was a pulsing thing
You shuddered every word
You are calling time again
 
I will reconcile, I will reconcile
I will reconcile, I will reconcile
 
We are in the room again
I will flick the teeth away
Temper would build me back
Legs you left belonged again
Now you're a limping grin
Once it was a pulsing thing
Sullen as a swollen tongue
You are calling time again
 
I will reconcile (candid in your hands)
I will reconcile (I hope you understand)
I will reconcile (candid in your hands)
I will reconcile (I hope you understand)
 
Again I know you're there
You will love again
It's there, in truth
You will love again
It's there, in truth
You will love again
 

An Onion's Flower

Rarely seen though so magnificant
As if stars that shoot sparkling out
From the bursting radiant center
These fireworks in soundless celebration
Of life's wonderous works mostly missed
Along hollow striated emerald stalks
That trail up from the verdent earth
Bearing forth this brillance of purity
Those sedate stars shooting across the sky
 

To the Sea

The wind is a-whipping through the open door
Speaking of the sea and the rolling waves
Maybe there's a ship at the bottom now
Or struggling on the surface with a cry for help
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Twenty years ago, it was a howling storm
As the voice of a God from a great beyond
I was standing on the shore as the sky grew dark
With a hand on a Bible and a hand on my heart
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Because all I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the doors of our house
 
The sun was drying up the rain in our sky
Shining gold in our sails and our hearts standing by
Remember what they're singing on their way to the sea:
'Goodbye, fare thee well, goodbye for me'
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Empty were the coffins and the house where we lived
As the grave that I dug by our place on the beach
How I wish the water could be poured out of the sea
So I could go and get you back ashore with me
Wish I could forget and let the years go by
Wish I could escape from my dreams of you
 
Because all I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the door...
Because all I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the door... (one more time!)
All I have left is the voice of the wind
Blowing through the doors... of our house
 

A Kiss Before You Go

Welcome to the crossroads
The centre of your life
A shrink has got your money
And the devil’s got your wife
 
Welcome to the crossroads
The crowded tv show
You form your lips forever
Into a kiss before you go
 

Solitude

Solitude...
Solitude...
 
J'ai entendu dire souvent
Je suis ton ami de tout vent
Lorsque l'orage a éclaté,
J'ai été comme foudroyée
Pourtant d'avant j'avais frappé
A la porte de mes hainés,
A la porte de mes amis
A la porte de l'ennemi
 
Je n'aime plus la solitude
Celle qui m'a glacé le cœur
Face à face avec ma douleur
Je n'ai trouvé que solitude
 
Solitude...
Solitude...
 
Aujourd'hui encore je m'en vais
Sans savoir qui est bon, mauvais
Pourtant mon cœur reste glacé
De ma mémoire sont effacés
Tous les visages d'autrefois
Et je n'ai plus besoin d'un toit
Pour abriter mes ennemis
Pour abriter d'anciens amis
 
Je n'aime plus la solitude
Celle qui m'a glacé le cœur
Face à face avec ma douleur
Je n'ai trouvé que solitude...
 
Solitude...
Solitude...
Solitude...
 

Mother Superior

In the clockwork, in the clockwork,
time is never at ease
A frantic sensation is hammering
nails in your spine
Multiple fractions and
muscle contractions will tear
your mind into shreds, cutting your threads
Do you regret you were born?
 
Take my hands into yours,
dance my senses away
Take my hands into yours,
before mother superior’s home
 
Monsieur, monsieur you look like
the saint in my dreams
Igniting the flame and carving
my name next to yours
This urban decline is
leaving its sign round my neck
Pulling the noose, tells me I’ll lose
There’s nothing to save
 
Take my hands into yours,
dance my senses away
Take my hands into yours,
before mother superior’s home
 
I’m sober, I’m sober, but I wish I was not
A gentle diversion or
a touch of divine I could use
The curtains are closed,
but I still feel exposed to the world
Wishing away somewhere astray
Are you still listening?
 
Take my hands into yours,
dance my senses away
Take my hands into yours,
before mother superior’s home
 

Keep the Customer Satisfied

Gee, but it's great to be back home
Home is where I want to be.
I've been on the road so long my friend,
And if you came along
I know you couldn't disagree.
 
It's the same old story, yeah
Everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied.
 
Deputy Sheriff said to me
Tell me what you come here for, boy.
You better get your bags and flee.
You're in trouble boy,
And now you're heading into more.
 
It's the same old story,
Everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm one step ahead of the shoe shine
Two steps away from the county line
Just trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied
 
Woah woah woah woah
 
It's the same old story,
Everywhere I go,
I get slandered, libeled,
I hear words I never heard in the Bible
And I'm so tired, I'm oh, so tired
But I'm trying to keep my customers satisfied,
Satisfied
 

Summer Jam

Get on the floor!
Put your hands up! (x7)
Get on the floor!
Put your hands up! (x7)
Get on the floor!
 
(chorus)
This ain't nothin' but a summer jam
Bronze skin and cinnamon tans whoa
This ain't nothin' but a summer jam
We're gonna party as much as we can
Hey, oh, hey
Summer jam alright
Hey, oh, hey
 
Tonight hotties wearin' Prada skirts
Real tight, temperature is risin'
Feelin' real hot in the heat of the night
 
Midnight, the party won't stop until' the mornin' light
I'm scopin' out the hotties with the light eyes
Be with me tonight
 
(hook)
Can't get you outta my mind, I can't lie
'Cause a girl like you is so hard to find
I'm waiting for the day to make you mine
'Cause I can't take it
 
(chorus)
 
Moonlight, cruisin' down the boulevard
Strobe lights watchin' you, your body's tight
Alright, looking kinda freaky to me
 
(hook)
 
(chorus)
 
This ain't nothin' but a summer jam
Bronze skin and cinnamon tans whoa
This ain't nothing but a summer jam
We're gonna party as much as we can
 
(chorus)
 
Summer jam alright
 

I Will Dance (When I Walk Away)

In our cold and empty house
I've lingered now for far too long
I vainly held the rosary
to pray you'd stay with me a while
But nothing seems to keep me here
the way it used to do before
This time it's me that's leaving you
I'll never turn around
 
'Cause when the laughter's gone
I know I must be moving on
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
No more
 
I'm standing at the crossroads now
the fields of opportunity
I'm ready to go anywhere
I'm full of hope and full of fear
And bridges back have all been burned
and freedom has been duly earned
I'll remember why I've gone
remember where I'm coming from
 
Oh, when the laughter's gone
Oo-oo, I know I must be moving on
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh-oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
And now I leave my mask with you
(The part) The part I played I never knew
(Tonight) Tonight, you´re alone
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
And I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
(I will dance when I walk away)
(Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray) Oh, no no no no no no
No, I will dance when I walk away
Oh, I'm gonna sing, I won't beg or pray
 
No more
No more, oh no no no
Oh, this is not a home for me
Oooo
 

God's Great Dust Storm

Hold my head
Hold my faith
Hold my eyes to the sky.
When my scythe has, has me cut in
God’s great, great dust storm.
 
Take my sins
Wash them clean
Pour a drink on my bones
And watch them, watch them burn in
God’s great, great dust storm
 
I’ll be your gimp
Whipped through the skin
In the hour that you come
There are greedy crows in
God’s great, great dust storm
 
I walked the line
In my best black suit
Through fields in sweet quiet mourn
Please let the faithful come forth in
God’s great, great dust
God’s great, great dust
God’s great, great dust storm
 

Caravan of Love

Are you ready for the time of your life?
It's time to stand up and fight
Hand in hand we'll take a caravan to the motherland
 
One by one we gonna stand up with pride
One that can't be denied
 
Now the children of the world can see
There's a better place for us to be
The place in which we were born
So neglected and torn apart
 
Every woman, every man
Join the caravan of love - stand up!
Everybody take a stand
Join the caravan of love - stand up!
 
He's my brother
He's my brother, don't you know?
I'm your sister
I'm your sister, don't you know?
 
We'll be living in a world of peace
And the day when everyone is free
We'll bring the young and the old
Won't you let your love flow from your heart?
 
Every woman, every man
Join the caravan of love - stand up!
Everybody take a stand
Join the caravan of love - stand up!
 
He's my brother
He's my brother, don't you know?
I'm your sister
I'm your sister, don't you know?
 
Every woman, every man
Join the caravan of love
Stand up!
 

Miracles

I have learned to fly since you came into my life
And I’ve forgotten all the reasons people ever cry
And it’s something I don’t think I can explain
But my love for you grows stronger every day
 
As sure as the sun awakens the night
Heavens have sent you to light up my life
The face that I’ve seen all this time in my dreams
The angel that told me that miracles exist
 
Thinking of the day my life has changed from wrong to right
When I saw reflections of my children in your eyes
And I swear I’ve never felt this way before
When you hold me in your arms it feels like home
 
As sure as the sun awakens the night
Heavens have sent you to light up my life
The face that I’ve seen all this time in my dreams
The angel that told me that miracles exist
 
They really do exist...
 
I won’t make it on my own
Now that I know it’s like to be loved
Now that you’re here it’s suddenly clear
That my life had just begun
You’re the only one for me
 
As sure as the sun awakens the night
Heavens have sent you to light up my life
The face that I’ve seen all this time in my dreams
The angel that told me
As sure as the sun awakens the night
Heavens have sent you to light up my life
The face that I’ve seen all this time in my dreams
The angel that told me that miracles exist
Miracles exist
Miracles exist
 

Hello

I've been alone with you inside my mind
And in my dreams i've kissed your lips
A thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door
Hello, is it me you're looking for
 
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You're all i ever wanted
And my arms are open wide
'Cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And i want to tell you so much
I love you
 
I long to see a sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again
How much i care
Sometimes i feel my heart will overflow
Hello, is it me you're looking for
 
'Cause i wonder where you are
And i wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely
Or is someone loving you
Tell me how to win your heart
For i haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying
I love you
 
Hello, is it me you're looking for
'Cause i wonder where you are
And i wonder what you do
Are somewhere feeling lonely
Or is someone loving you
Tell me how to win your heart
For i haven't got a clue
But let me start by saying
I love you
 

Something's Happening

Something is happening
And it started happening
When you walked by
Something is happening
And it's changing everything
Do you know why?
 
As soon as you started to kiss me
Something new suddenly hit me
The world over, it's always happening
The same sort of thing to others too
Something is happening to me
And I only hope the same thing is happening to you
 
Something is happening, exciting, bewildering
You must know why
Something is happening, I can't think of anything
But you and I
 
What begins these loving notions?
You do things to my emotions
I can tell whatever is happening
There's nothing about it I can do
Something is happening to me
And I only hope the same thing is happening to you
 
As soon as you started to kiss me
Something new suddenly hit me
The world over, it's always happening
The same sort of thing to others too
Something is happening to me
And I only hope the same thing is happening to you
 
What begins these loving notions?
You do things to my emotions
I can tell whatever is happening
There's nothing about it I can do
Something is happening to me
And I only hope the same thing
Is happening to you
 

Ten O'Clock Postman

Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Ten o'clock postman, make me feel better
Been so many days since that I've met her
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Bring me her letter
 
I'm walking all over the room
Wonder why I don't stop biting my nails
Why carry this feeling of doom
A couple more hours and I'll get the mail
I'll get the mail
 
Finding it so hard to eat
The toast and the eggs they just don't taste the same
Hearing a noise in the street
I run to the window and cry out in vain
 
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Ten o'clock postman, make me feel better
Been so many days since that I've met her
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Bring me her letter
 
Remembering that she said for sure
I'll write you the minute I'll get off the plane
Nothing, not one single word
It must come this morning or I'll go insane
I'll go insane
 
Now it's been almost five days
Could she have sent it by air or by rail?
I hear someone's coming this way
This must be it, yes, it must be the mail
 
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Ten o'clock postman, make me feel better
Been so many days since that I've met her
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Bring me her letter
 
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Ten o'clock postman, make me feel better
Been so many days since that I've met her
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
 
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
Ten o'clock postman, make me feel better
Been so many days since that I've met her
Ten o'clock postman, bring me her letter
 

Always on my mind

Started out as a little game
We both could play
It seemed so simple, superficial
I lost along the way
Now I think I’m in too deep
I’m begging you to stay
I don’t know why, I don’t know how
You’ve led my heart astray
 
I’ve seen cuter
I’ve heard smoother
Tasted sweeter
I’ve laughed harder
Acted smarter
I’ve been wiser
 
Tell me why
You’re always on my mind
You’re always on my mind
Always on my mind
 
I don’t know why
You’re always on my mind
You’re always on my mind
Always on my mind
 
In my life I've met some guys
Who’ve hurt me with good-byes
I made a promise to my heart
To never let a soul inside
All who know me would agree
That this is not like me
Would I believe if someone told me
I’d trip so easily
 
I’ve seen cuter
I’ve heard smoother
Tasted sweeter
I’ve laughed harder
Acted smarter
I’ve been wiser
 
Tell me why
You’re always on my mind
You’re always on my mind
Always on my mind
 
I don’t know why
You’re always on my mind
You’re always on my mind
Always on my mind
 
What is it about you that drives me crazy?
I think about you all the time
 
I’ve seen cuter
I’ve heard smoother
Tasted sweeter
I’ve laughed harder
Acted smarter
I’ve been wiser
 
Tell me why
You’re always on my mind
You’re always on my mind
Always on my mind
 

The Only Way Out

[Verse 1]
If you could look inside my life
And use my eyes, would you pity me?
Would you see the desperate nights
And all the lies that brought me to my knees
I keep thinking that I have to make you fall
The way I fell from your betrayal to bring me peace of mind
I will let you move along, just walk away
And wear a cape like you're some hero
 
[Chorus]
I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say 'I'm here now'
And it's the only way out
I can't hear love cause we're at war
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way out
 
[Verse 2]
I used to hear my father say, 'Counterplay ends in defeat'
And I said I'd never be that way
Tried to make you pay cause it would cost me
But you owe me so much more than what you gave to this
I guess every story twists
People tell me let it go, oh, and forget
 
[Chorus]
I can't hear love cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say 'I'm here now'
And it's the only way out
I can't hear love cause we're at war
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way
 
[Outro]
Mercy's the only way out
Mercy gave me my way out
 

Every Heartbeat

Hear me speak what's on my mind
Let me give this testimony
To reaffirm that you will find
That you are my one and only
 
No exception to this rule
I'm simple but I'm no fool
I've got a witness, happy to say
Every hour, every day
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim
My red blood runs true blue
And every heartbeat belongs to you
 
Classic case of boy meets girl
Moving in the same direction
You're not asking for the world
I'm not asking for perfection
 
Just a love that's well designed
For passing the test of time
I'm here to tell you, I'm here to stay
Every hour, every day
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim
Ask anyone and they'll tell you it's true
That every heartbeat belongs to you
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim, yeah
My red blood runs true blue
And every heartbeat belongs to you
 
Yeah, sure, maybe I'm on the edge
But I love you, baby, and like I said
I'm here to tell you, I'm here to stay
Every hour, every day
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim
Ask anyone and they'll tell you it's true
That every heartbeat belongs to you
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim, yeah
My red blood runs true blue
Every heartbeat belongs to you
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim
Every heartbeat belongs to you
 
Every heartbeat bears your name
Loud and clear they stake my claim
Ask anyone and they'll tell you it's true
That every heartbeat belongs to you
 

Island

Almost so perfect
The way that I want you
I'm almost deserving
When I get close to you
I disappear
Lost in the waves
I go under, under
 
I am an island
You are the ocean
We're so close
We're touching
Completely surrounded
But I cannot have you
The way that I want to
Cause I am an island
You are the ocean
No I cannot have you
I cannot have you without
Drowning
 
My breath is shallow
I just can't catch it
My heart is breaking
Feel the waves crashing
A new storm is building
If it, reaches land, I'll go under, under
 
Cause I am an island
You are the ocean
We're so close
We're touching
Completely surrounded
But I cannot have you
The way that I want to
Cause I am an island
You are the ocean
No I cannot have you
I cannot have you without
Drowning
 
I see you out there
I'm lost in the blue
I'm part of, your world but
I cannot have you
Cause I am deserted
And you are too deep
I cannot love you
Without losing me
 
I am an island
You are the ocean
We're so close
We're touching
Completely surrounded
But I cannot have you
The way, that I want to
Cause I am an island
You are the ocean
No I cannot have you
I cannot have you, without
Drowning
 

Cruel World

I'm putting you out of your misery
'Cause darling you're dragging me down
I wish I could say that I'm sorry
But I'm over that, now I'm taking you out
It's a cruel, cruel world
 
I used to see beauty in people
But now I see muscle and bones
You know I never wanted to hurt you
But I'm sorry, my friend, this is the end
 
So I'm saying my goodbyes
Goodbye to my good side
It only ever got me hurt
And I finally learned
It's a cruel, cruel world
It's a cruel, cruel world
 
Erase you from my mind
I'm sorry, but I
I'm cutting all the ties
