Baby Come Back

I’m starin’ at the four walls
Sittin’ here, waitin’ by the telephone
Your words are runnin’ through my mind
Trying to cut me like a knife
You don’t wanna see me any more
Well I know you’re nothin’ special
So how come you can be so impressional
I tried to figure it out, got a black out
I guess I call you an essential

Baby come back, baby come back cos I’m all alone
Baby come back, baby come back I’m in the danger zone

My heart ain’t made of plastic
I’m tellin’ you, I’m gonna do somethin’ drastic, (drastic)
I’m trying biding my time
Takin’ my time, tickin’ like a fully-automatic
Well I know I’m not original
But listen here, I should be more than your provisional
You keep runnin’ around, all around town
Actin’ like a cool individual

Baby come back, baby come back cos I’m all alone
Baby come back, baby come back I’m in the danger zone
I said, baby come back, baby come back cos I’m all alone
Baby come back, baby come back I’m in the danger zone
Rip It Up

My head is dancin’ like a ball full of fire
Burnin’ up with the flames gettin’ higher
Rip it up, rip it up good
Rip it up like y’know you really should

We never had to say a thing to one another
The band is hot n’they’re playin’ it like a mother
Rip it up, rip it up good
Rip it up like y’know you really should

Get you on the rebound, catch you when you fall
Singin’ Long Tall Sally gonna rip it up, rip it up

Sweet is drippin’ from the ceiling an’ the walls
Word is out, I hear the curtains gonna fall Rip it up, rip it up good
Rip it up like y’know you really should

Get you on the rebound, catch you when you fall
Singin’ Long Tall Sally gonna rip it up, rip it up

Rip it up, rip it up good.
Rip it up like y’know you really should.

Get you on the rebound, catch you when you fall
Singin’ Long Tall Sally gonna rip it up, rip it up

Ooh, Rip it up, Rip it up (Rip it up!)
Ooh, Rip it up, Rip it up (Rip it up! Rip it up!)
Ooh, Rip it up, Rip it up (Gonna rip it up!)
Ooh, Rip it up, Rip it up (C’mon, Rip it up! Rip it up!)
Think I’m In Love

We’re growin’ up too fast
I never thought it’d last another day
The commitment’s here
But when I try to stare
You turn away
I don’t need to hide my feelin’s
That just leaves my senses reelin’
You’re not sure you know me well
But I bet you know the answer when you tell me

Think about it, I think I’m in love
You better think about it. I think I’m in love
Think about it, think about it
Think about it all the time, all the time baby
Givin’ it up, givin’ it up, givin’ up the fight
I think I’m in love
I think I’m in love (I think I’m in love

You always look your best
It’s like a constant test of my restrain
My intention’s clear
But your obsessive fear is always plain
I got complications too
I don’t know what to say or do
I can see them gettin’ in the way
But I get so crazy when I hear you say

Think about it, I think I’m in love
You better think about it, I think I’m in love
Think about it, think about it
Think about it all the time, all the time, baby
Givin’ it up, givin’ it up, givi’n up the fight
I think I’m in love
I think I’m in love
I think I’m in love

I got complications too
I don’t know what to say or do
I can see them gettin’ in the way
But I get so crazy when I hear you say

Think about it, I think I’m in love
You better think about it, I think I’m in love
Think about it, think about it
Think about it all the time, all the time baby
Givin’ it up, givin’ it up, givin’ up the fight
And I think about it. I think I’m in love
And I think about it. I think I’m in love
And I think about it. I think I’m in love
And I think about it. I think I’m in love
And I think about it


Where Are You Now

Every single day I think of the times
When you were still mine and I’m blue
Gotta get away, get you out of my mind
I’m caught up in time and I’m blue
I don’t miss all the fun that we had
You were always around me

Where are you now I need you now
If you were around it would be alright

Livin’ on my own
I know I’m to blame
I’m locked in my chains
And you’re free
Fallen like a stone
I’m down on the ground
I’m tied up and bound
And you’re free
I don’t miss all the fun that we had
You were always around me

Where are you now
I need you now
If you were around it would be alright

I don’t miss all the fun that we had
You were always around me

Where are you now
I need you now
If you were around it would be alright

Where are you now
I need you now
If you were around it would be alright
Where are you now
I need you now
If you were around it would be alright
Baby’s Got A Gun

Everybody knows ’em on the streets, they’ve seen her
Carvng up another piece of meat
I tell you Mama
Baby’s got a gun
Why you always runnin’ from the truth, why don’t you
Come along and have yourself a look
I tell you Mama
Baby’s got a gun

But you say
Show me a motion
I show you everything
Show me a motion
You see the evidence
Show me a motion
Baby’s got a gun

Used to watch her prayin’ to the Lord on Sundays
She ain’t a little angel anymore
I tell you Mama
Baby’s got a gun

I even tried to reason with her need for action
She turned around and pointed it at me
I tell you Mama
Baby’s got a gun

You still say
Show me a motion
I show you everything
Show me a motion
You see the evidence
Show me a motion
Baby’s got a gun

Little Bo Peep’s gone off the deep end
Sweet sixteen’s run away for the weekend

Show me a motion
I show you everything
Show me a motion
You see the evidence
Show me a motion
Baby’s got a gun
Never In A Million Years

Feels like only yesterday
We were so in love with one another
I guess the truth was just a dream away
You never told no lies
You never gave me no warning
But when I turned around you were gone
I still remember the days when they used to play our song
I’ve gotten wise to you baby
I should’ve known about it all along

Never in a million years
I can’t take another heartache
Never in a million years
I’m gonna finish what ya started
Never, never, never in a million years
Darlin’ you want me to love you, but
Never in million

I did everything for you
Givin’ in to all your funny notions
You just wound me up and let me go (let me go)
You would never lose no pride
Tellin’ everybody how you used me
Now you want me to forget it all
Do you remember the days when we used to sing along
I’ve gotten wise to you baby
I should’ve known about it all along

Never in a million years
I can’t take another heartache
Never in a million years
I’m gonna finish what ya started
Never, never, never in a million years
Darlin’ you want me to love you
Never in a million

Never in a million, never in a, never in a million years
Never in a million, never in a, never in a million years, million years

I still remember when they used to play our song
I’ve gotten wise to you baby
Should have known about it all along

Never in a million years
I can’t take another heartache
Never in a million years
I’m gonna finish what ya started
Never in a million years
I can’t take another heartache
Never in a million years
I’m gonna finish what ya started
Never in a million years
I can’t take another heartache
Never in a million years
Call Me Automatic

Well I heard you’re back in town and you’re all alone
I wanna see you right now ‘fore the night’s too old
I don’t wanna hear you sayin’ that I’m way too late
We don’t have to talk love ’cause the love can wait

You can call me automatic, call me automatic with you
Call me automatic, you can call me automatic
Gotta have your love tonight

Well we’re lyin’ here together with the lights down low
It’s not easy holdin’ back ‘cos my body’s got to go
Let me be your lover, I can be your friend
Don’t worry about nothin’ cos I’ll never let it end

Ooh, you can call me automatic, call me automatic with you
Call me automatic, you can call me automatic
Gotta have your love tonight

You can call me automatic, call me automatic with you
Call me automatic, you can call me automatic
Gotta have your love

Can call me automatic, call me automatic with you
Call me automatic, call me automatic
Gotta have your love tonight
Ooh, call me automatic, gotta have your love tonight
Call me automatic, call me automatic
Cos I gotta have your love tonight
Ooh, call me automatic
A Day In The Life

Livin’ in the city
Tryin’ to make it through the day
There’s only one way up but you feel down
Make a firm connection
Look upon the bright side of life
Face the world with an optimistic smile

Because a day in the life is only what you make it
A day in the life is only what you give
Your name’s in lights so why the hesitatin’
A day in the life is just the life you live today

When you make decisions never deal with a negative mind
You will take forever to decide
Go your own direction
Put yourself at the top of the line
Leave your tribulations far behind

Because a day in the life is only what you make it
A day in the life is only what you give
Your name’s in lights so why the hesitatin’
A day in the life is just the life you live today

Today you’ve confidence inside
You’re glad to be alive, ooh
Open up your mind, open up your eyes wide

Because a day in the life is only what you make it
A day in the life is only what you give
Your name’s in lights so why the hesitatin’
A day in the life is just the life you live today

A day in the life is only what you make it
A day in the life is only what you give
Your name’s in lights so why the hesitatin’
A day in the life is just the life you live today

A day in the life
A day in the life
A day in the life
A day in the life
A day in the life
A day in the life
I Wanna Be Alone Tonight

Five to ten
I miss your company
But I don’t need a friend
To take the place of you
Did I see you cryin’ on my shoulder?
When you said your love for me was over

I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I don’t need anyone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
Leave me alone, Leave me alone

I’m to blame for thinkin’ you still care for me
It’s a cryin’ shame
We started out so well
Did I see you cryin’ on my shoulder?
When you said your love for me was over

Yeah, I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I don’t need anyone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
Leave me alone, Leave me alone

Did I see you cryin’ on my shoulder?
When you said your love for me was over

I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I don’t need anyone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I don’t need anyone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I don’t need anyone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
I wanna be alone, I wanna be alone
I wanna be alone tonight
Burning Down

If it takes them so long
So long to say yes
Why don’t they just say no?
They don’t need anyone to be put to the test
Why don’t they let us go?

Livin’ for the right to be, livin’ for the right
Livin’ for the right to be, livin’ for the right
Livin’ for the right to be free

We needed a plan, we needed defences
We couldn’t raise a smile
As the world looked on, they raided our senses
There can be no reconcile

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down

There was a time before life was taken for granted
Will never come again
Our flower is dead, the seed is unplanted
They put it all to flame

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down

Livin’ for the right to be, livin’ for the right
Livin’ for the right to be, livin’ for the right
Livin’ for the right to be free
Livin’ for the right to be, livin’ for the right
Livin’ for the right to be, livin’ for the right
Livin’ for the right to be free

Burning down, burning down, burning down, burning down


Part Of The Scenery (Baby Come Back B Side)

Countdown’s starting, now the goin’s gettin’ rough
I give you my lovin’, but I guess it ain’t enough
Once upon a time you were proud I was your man
Now you’re low on affection and I get it when I can
When your friends all visit and they see me comin’ through
There’s a voice from the crowd sayin’ “Who the hell are you?”

I’m just a part of the scenery bein’ with you
A thorn in your rose, kinda spoilin’ the view
I’m part of the scenery
Whatcha gonna do about me?

Wanna be strong, try to put you in your place
I show a little love, get the sand in my face
I try to get up, always something goin’ down
Caught in the middle of your merry go round

The wise men say I should leave well alone
But the same wise men just call when you are home

I’m just a part of the scenery bein’ with you
A thorn in your rose, kinda spoilin’ the view
I’m part of the scenery
Whatcha gonna do about me?
