Goodbye Miracles

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye

Sittin’ in a cornfield, Tennessee
I can see you, sure as hell you see me
There’s a lack of good feedin’, there’s a sack of good reason
In the back of my neck, there’s a pain ain’t relievein’

Need some sign, some guarantee
If the sun’s gonna shine, let it shine on me
Tell me what have I done to you?
What have I gone through?
What am I to do without your love?

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye

If only my friends could see me now
Pissin’ in the wind ‘til the midnight hour
If I had some pride, I’d be whippin’ my hide
Then deliver you the body with a note that rhymes

One of these days you’ll be crawlin’ back
One of these days when the sky turns black
When a pig flies by in a pink tie-dye for you
What am I to do without your love?

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye……no

Gimme a sign, gimme one of your lines
‘bout stickin’ your head in the oven tonight by five
One in the eye, what a pleasant surprise
I can almost feel the turning of the knife inside
So clinical, goodbye my miracle, goodbye

Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye
Bye, bye miracle, goodbye, bye miracle
Goodbye, bye miracles, goodbye

Sittin’ in a cornfield, Tennessee
I can see you, sure as hell you see me
There’s a lack of good feedin’, there’s a sack of good reason
In the back of my neck, there’s a pain ain’t relievein’
Need some sign, some guarantee
If the sun’s gonna shine, let it shine on me
Tell me what have I done to you?
What have I gone through?
What am I to do?
If only my friends could see me now
Pissin’ in the wind ‘til the midnight hour
If I had some pride, I’d be whippin’ my hide
Then deliver you the body with a note that says goodbye
I said goodbye, oh goodbye, just goodbye, I said goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I said goodbye, let me tell you

One of these days you’ll be crawlin’ back
One of these days when the sky turns black
When a pig flies by in a pink tie-dye for you
What am I to do without your love, without your love?
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I said goodbye, I said goodbye, I said goodbye, I said goodbye,
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye!

Nobody Home

Hell’s Bells again, message from the heavens
Let it slide, just let it slide
Won’t take the blame
Say, leave your name and number, thanks, bye
The call comes thru, the call comes thru
Then the call comes thru an’ we don’t know what to do

Strangers from the sky drop by
You can see it in their eyes
They’ve got nothin’ much better to do
Better than you
Take to your beds
Try an’ take to covering up your heads
Quit spoiling the view
Then the call comes thru
An’ they don’t know what to do

They call and they call
There’s no-one listening, nobody
They call, they call, they call and they call
There’s no-one answering, nobody
Nobody home

Home, home on the Range
Never seen a better way of stuffin’ that stuff
Right up out of view, out of the blue
It’s only painful when you laugh, don’t laugh
When you’re dealin’ with psychopaths
Only thing you can do
Then the call comes thru, an’ we don’t know what to do

They call, an’ they call
There’s no-one listening, nobody
They call, they call, they call, they call
There’s no-one answering, nobody
Nobody home

In the alligator rain, ten seconds on the clock
When your feet have caught fire tellin’ Hell`n yellin’
“Make it stop, just make it stop!”
There’s a toll-free you can dial, got everything on file
It’s a mediator, radiator, second-class taper to talk
Then the call comes thru, an’ we don’t know what to do

They call an’ they call
There’s no-one listening, nobody
They call, they call, they call and they call
There’s no-one answering, nobody
Nobody home

Resolve, dissolve, re-call, they fall
There’s no-one listening, nobody home

They try, they lie, they cry, they die
There’s no-one answering, nobody home

Nobody home.
Hammer Comes Down

I’m looking from the window
I hear the radio playin’ my kinda town
Don’t want to be a loser
Gonna lose myself in my kinda town
You’re sellin’ me a reason
You’re tellin’ me it’s pleasin’ you
I know you’re lying

Whatcha gonna do when the hurricane hits you?
Oh yeah when the hammer comes down
Whatcha gonna do when the dealer outwits you?
Oh yeah when the hammer comes down

I’m waitin’ for the thunder
Is it any wonder that I’m cryin’ inside?
Don’t wanna go crazy
It’s never easy when you’re dyin’ inside
It’s gettin’ kinda late for you
I’m never gonna wait for you
In silent promise
Take My Hand

Silver bracelet, satin gown
Smile for me baby
Make me feel alright
Endless highway, dead of night
Don’t look in the mirror
Everything will be alright

Come on and take my hand
I’ll take you where nothin’s planned
No need to run, it’s over and done
If you take my hand

Empty faces, silent town
Dance for me baby
Make me feel alright
Don’t you cry out in the darkness
Don’t pray in the morning
We can pray for the light

All I needed was your love
All I wanted was a little company
We all need just a little lovin’ care
And comfort to get us through the night
Friend

Followin’ you around ‘cos every creep in town they wanna hold you near
Forgive my despair I’m not spoken for anywhere
I get all messed up baby everybody needs a friend

I keep a stainless mind it works every time I get so much done.
In some uncertain way you look so temperate like you would give in, some
I get all messed up baby everybody needs a friend
Aw c’mon lets dance baby everybody needs a friend.

I know what you want and everything you crave, do you understand?
Supposing you could speak would you speak to me, nothing planned?
Don’t waste my time baby everybody needs,
C’mon lets dance baby everybody needs a friend.
A friend.

Nobody Calls Me That

Call me superstitious but am I outa luck?
I can tell I’m out of favour, more than enough
Please wont you tell I’m devoid of a clue
How come I’m getting you heated?
Is it something I do?

Don’t wanna say nothin’ that you don’t wanna hear
But there’s a little demon whisprin’ in my left ear
He say, “It don’t appear likely you’re required tonight
Why don’t you take your butt elsewhere, business is tight”
I can take so much of your Autocrat-chat
But you’ve blown it big time mister
Nobody calls me that

You could’ve called me a lily-assed one-eyed clown
Could’ve called me Marie, I’d-a-never turned around
Could’ve said my mother likes to take it in back
But you’ve blown it big time mister
Nobody calls me that

Don’t often stick around when trouble begins
But your mouth’s so big I gotta fill it in
Ah you were too dumb, way too dumb to quit
So don’t patronise, ‘cos it don’t mean shit
Gonna leave here wearin’ your baseball bat
3 times a lady, boy, nobody…………calls me that!

Do It!

In a Tax-free zone, down a tin-can alley
There’s a slipper girl-thing and a man named Sally
They were talk-talk-talkin’ ‘bout a final little coffin nail
Seems, down at the Docks, the intended lies a-waitin’
And the privileged information’s gonna get wet too.
Y’can’t be too careful when it comes to being careful

Do it, do it, just do it!

There’s a man in my street keeps a flock of grey doves
An’ he’s set in his ways, wearin’ Everlast gloves
His opinion can be beat when push becomes a shove
Says he doesn’t give a monkey ‘bout youth of the day
They should all drop dead, should be taken away
Put somewhere cold and all be made to stay

Do it, do it, just do it, just do it!

There, there, there my sweet
You can sip it thru a straw; you can throw it back neat
Just don’t be hesitatin’ waitin’ for it
Cos in the ideal world I’d be coming for you
Could be tokin’ on the bale, could be sniffin’ that glue
Better stake your fakin’ reputation on it

Do it, do it, just do it!

Do it, do it, just do it!
Colour My Love

Darkness fell on me with a vengeance tonight
Now my darkness has a name
I can’t make you stay, I don’t have the right
Least of all when I’m to blame

There was a time when we could’ve reached for the skies
Dreams all painted up in blue
So what’s the reasoning behind those blue eyes?
What is left for us to do when all our dreams spin out of view?

Nothing in my eyes my love
Just a pain inside my love
Is it night or day, all I see is grey?
Colour my love

It’s hard to sleep away the images I see
When all my visions are of you
I feign indifference from thoughts that shouldn’t be
Tell myself I’ll make it through
When all I really need is you

I’ve been thinking ‘bout a time when all the world was fine
And the colour of love was yours and mine
Every bright new day was goin’ our way
And the nights were warm and long
Ain’t it funny how the change came on so fast?
And the dreams all faded
That our love would last I believed an’ I still believe
Our love goes on and on and on
Walk Out

I heard about your felony
It’s been comin’ for a long time
You say you wanna set me free
But I never get to know why
You’ve been actin’ in a curious way
You leave me nothin’ but the bills to pay

Walk out, just when I need ya,
Walk out, take a walk
Walk out, just when it pleases ya
Walk out, just take a walk

You closed so many doors in my face
But I try to keep a level head
Now someone else is takin’ my place
I’m a thorn in your flower bed
It’s never easy to say goodbye
You hang around just to see me cry

Walk out, just when I need ya,
Walk out, take a walk
Walk out, just when it pleases ya
Walk out, just take a walk

You always could rely on me
To be there when you were falling down
Now you bring me to my knees
I ain’t beggin’ you to stay around

Walk out, just when I need ya,
Walk out, take a walk
Walk out, just when it pleases ya
Walk out, just take a walk
Money & Girls

Shake!

I love getting all in a mess; I love a stranger’s distress
I like your verbal attack; I love answering back

There’s a slow train comin’ and it’s bringin’ no thrills
Just treason with a reason called money and girls
Please, Mr Postman, my heart’s in a whirl
There’s gotta be somethin’ in the sack ’bout money and girls

I love the smell of Gasoline Stations
An’ the way the League of Nations always screwed up
I love playin’ ovens in Dutch, I love doin’ nothin’ much

From the Folky in the gutter to the dyke from Hollywood Hills
They’re singin’ “Here’s another ditty ’bout money and girls.”
There’s a solitary guru sittin’ in a tower of molten guilt
Cryin’ “I’ve sinned Father, sinned ‘bout money and girls.”
Please, Mr Postman, my heart’s in a whirl, there’s gotta be
Somethin’ in the sack, somethin’ in the sack
Of money and girls

Shake!

I love makin’ fun of my nose; I love how your garden grows
Get off drivin’ real fast cars’ get a buzz eatin’ Willie Wonka candy bars

There’s a slow train comin’ an’ it’s bringin’ no thrills
There’s a friend worth believin’, It’s money and girls
Please, please, pretty please, pretty damn please
It’ll freeze an’ you won’t notice, focus, money and girls
There’s a snake in the grass and it’s closin’ on you fast but
Money and girls only thing that’s gonna last
Money and girls it’s future in the past
Better cover your ass, cover your ass
Hey you Mr Postman, my heart’s in a whirl
There’s gotta be somethin’ in the sack about money and girls
There’s a solitary guru sittin’ in a Tower of molten guilt
Cryin’ “I’ve sinned Father, sinned Father, sinned Father
Sinned Father over and over and over
Money and girls

Shake!  Shake!  Shake!

Money and girls
Don’t Keep Me Waitin’

Just gone midnight, another lonely night ahead
I could use a little love cos I’m slowly goin’ out of my head
I really wanna call you but I can do without the pain
Why’d you have to lead me on and then leave me cold again?

Don’t keep me waitin’
I’m so alone without your love
Don’t keep me waitin’
I’ve been the loser long enough

I don’t understand you I give you everything you want
There’s gotta be another way I cant rely on your lovin’ at all
Do you really want me or am I wasting all my time?
You really gotta let me know tell me baby will you ever be mine?

Don’t keep me waitin’
I’m so alone without your love
Don’t keep me waitin’
I’ve been the loser long enough

You’re so sure you can keep me underground
But one day you’ll call an’ I wont be around

Don’t keep me waitin’
I’m so alone without your love
Don’t keep me waitin’
I’ve been a loser long enough

Don’t keep me waitin’
One In A Million

As the winds of love are blowing
Where they’ll lead you, no one knows
Till the misty mornin’ finds you all alone

When I feel I’m always losin’
When it seems so hard to hold
Then I realise you’re all I need to know

One in a million dreams come true
Some never see it through
But, one in a million came to be with you

In the ever-changing story
Tender moments shining through
Hear the echoes of the pages here with you

Leaving all my cares behind me
Not afraid to run the race
All the strength I need is always in your face

When the sky is burnin’ there’s you
When the world stops turnin’ there’s you
Get Inside Of You

Get inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Spread the shame of your righteous morality
Lay the blame firmly right at your door
Only from you can I get to the start of it
Only for you can I get to the heart of it all

So I’m getttin’ inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

I’m amazed just how long you can go without
All the craziness locked in your eyes
Only a fool could be foolish enough for you
Only a fool would be willing and able to try

So I’m getttin’ inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Take a walk with me down through your innocent life
You can talk to me; it’s not a crime
Only a view from your eyes is enough for me
Only a fool would be willing and able to try

So I’m getttin’ inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Get inside the stranger, get inside the danger
Get into the manger, get inside of you
Breakin’ down the stone wall, let me be your role model
Getting’ through the phone call
Get inside of you

Crankin’ Up The Handle
Oh Rose
Come On Boys

Hey buddy can you spare the time
Cos me and the boys, we got an axe to grind
There’s no business like show business
Keep the motor runnin’ comin’ down the line
Playin’ all night, playin’ all night long
Give us more time, give us time for one more song

Come on boys
The rock keeps rollin’ on on
Come on boys
Come on boys
It keeps me hangin’ on
Come on boys

The joint’s rockin’, goin’ ’round and ’round
We can do it better when the sun go down
I’m all right I’m one of the boys
Give us an inch we deliver the noise
Goin’ up, never comin’ down
Lookin’ in the mirror, hey mom I’m a big boy now

Come on boys
The rock keeps rollin’ on
Come on boys

It keeps me hangin’ on

One More Night

So you finally made your mind up
You’re gonna pack your bags and move on
You know I wouldn’t try and stop you even if I could
I know we’ve been together too long
I know we both agreed it’s over
I’m breakin’ up inside
Cos girl I’ll miss you when you go
The conversation’s growin’ weak
The tears are rollin’ on down your cheek
I’ve gotta make a stand
I know I can’t deny

One more night
Give me just one more night
I wanna leave it all behind
I wanna love you one more time
So baby, one more night
Give me just one more night
I never wanna see you cry
Stay until the morning light
One more night

After all this time together
Breakin’ up is not so easy
But it’s the only way
For we’re both longing to be free
We could talk all day about it
It wouldn’t get us anywhere
So just leave your cases in the hall
And don’t act so sincere
The table’s turned so many times
There’s nothing left so nothing rhymes
But I don’t want to see you goin’ out that door tonight

One more night
Give me just one more night
I wanna leave it all behind
I wanna love you one more time
So baby, one more night
Give me just one more night
I never wanna see you cry
Stay until the morning light
One more night

The table’s turned so many times
There’s nothing left so nothing rhymes
But I don’t want to see you goin’ out that door tonight

One more night
Give me just one more night
I wanna leave it all behind
I wanna love you one more time
So baby, one more night
Give me just one more night
I never wanna see you cry
Stay until the morning light
One more night
One more night
I never wanna see you cry
Baby baby baby baby
One more night
One more night
I never wanna see you cry
Baby baby baby baby
One more night
London Calling

Night comes down
All is quiet in London town
Lost remains
Ember’s burning in a sea of pain
No more fight
No longer matters if it’s wrong or right
But there’s a faintish glow
Breakin’ silence on the radio

London calling
Tear it up, push it down
London calling
London calling
Living in the Underground
London calling

He’s got the set turned on
Gets the feeling that there’s something wrong
No air supply
A running battle with the flaming sky
He had a running bet
I hope he doesn’t wanna go just yet
Because it never takes long
To hear the message on the intercom

London calling
Tear it up, push it down
London calling
London calling
Living in the Underground
London calling
London calling
London calling

To say the British Empire… (Winston Churchill speech)

In the government block
Heavy ticking from a shell-shocked clock
No alibis
They say we’re nothing but a sacrifice
Sacrifice

Don’t wanna rush you but I think it’s time to go
Im hearin’ double from the radio

I ain’t crazy but I think I’m blind
I’m runnin’ outta time again
You say I never ever had no class (had no class)
You say you’re happy but you’re wearing it like a mask
It’s never easy when you got no friends
I wanna be your friend again

So just get me outta here
Get me outta here any way you can
Get me outta here
I don’t want a love affair just get me outta here

You’re takin’ fakin’ with your mock surprise

You Don’t Have To Go

Just about a year ago
Driven by the winter snow
You came to me alone outta season
You were tired and I was blind
You said you’d leave the rest behind
When you ran out, I couldn’t mind, had no reason
Now you’re back to say Hello
Just like a dream in a movie show
How I still love you I’ll never know
But I do

You don’t have to go baby
You are the only one for me
You don’t have to go baby
Why don’t you stay and keep me company
I gotta let you know lady
When you leave I get a little bit crazy
You don’t have to go, no, no

Remember how it used to be
Talkin’ cheap but the love was free
It never seemed to bother me
I guess I never knew
Now we’re sittin’ here wastin’ time
Had our fill of this vintage wine
Times have changed since we used to fly down the Avenue

You don’t have to go baby
You are the only one for me
You don’t have to go baby
Why don’t you stay and keep me company
I gotta let you know lady
When you leave I get a little bit crazy
You don’t have to go, no, no

Ooh, there goes my love again
Tearin’ at my soul again, and I know
We never ever should have fallen apart
I got no use for a lonely heart anymore
No
Yeah
Yeah

You don’t have to go baby
You were the only one for me
You don’t have to go baby
Why don’t you stay and keep me company
I gotta let you know lady
When you leave I get a little bit crazy
You don’t have to go, no, no

You don’t have to go baby
You were the, you were the only one for me
You don’t have to go baby
Why don’t you stay and keep me company
I gotta let you know you were the only one for me
You don’t have to go
You were the, you were the only one for me
Cos you don’t have to leave
You don’t have to go no no
You don’t have to go baby
Look Back In Anger

Callin’ out loud, callin’ all cars
Never gonna make it to the next bar
Living is hard, life is rough
I wouldn’t be so weak if she wasn’t so tough
Blame it on her, blame it on you
Blame it on who ever you want to
But there’s a cold wind blowin’, your face is getting’ wet
You think your gonna die but not just yet
Beggin for her lovin’, getting down on one knee
Can’t you see you’re livin’ in a fantasy
Foolin’ around

You gotta look back in anger when your love is falling down
You gotta look back in anger don’t turn her head around
Don’t try to understand her
She wouldn’t do the same for you
Just look back in anger
There ain’t a lot that you can do

Well, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Throw it at the wall maybe some will stick
Keep it under your hat, she’s under your thumb
Feelin’ like a loser when you know you’ve won
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot, ten
Give another mile and she’ll do you again
Letting you down

You gotta look back in anger when your love is falling down
You gotta look back in anger don’t turn her head around
Don’t try to understand her
She wouldn’t do the same for you
Just look back in anger
There ain’t a lot that you can do

Well, six foot, seven foot, eight foot, ten
Give another mile and she’ll do it again
Letting you down

You gotta look back in anger when your love is falling down
You gotta look back in anger don’t turn her head around
Don’t try to understand her
She wouldn’t do the same for you
Just look back in anger
There ain’t a lot that you can do
Look back in anger
Look back in anger
Don’t try to understand her
She wouldn’t do the same for you
Look back in….
Better Than You

You stroll in with your lounge lizard attitude
But you’re lookin’ like something the cat had chewed
I don’t need it tonight, you’re givin’ me a stage fright
I don’t know if you’re sure about who you think you are
Cos you’re acting like some kinda movie star
You think you’re the best, pride of the West
Just give it a rest cos I know

I can do better than you
Ain’t no lie
I can do better than you
Any time
I can do better than you
Ain’t it a crime
Cos I can do better than you

You turn it up when you hear your song on the radio
There’s nothing like makin’ your garden grow
You got nothin’ to say, so put it all away
I suppose you could always pay for another ride
Cos there’s some things honey you can’t deny
It’s the end of the show, resistance is low
Get outta my way, just go

I can do better than you
Ain’t no lie
I can do better than you
Any time
I can do better than you
Ain’t it a crime
Cos I can do better than you
I can do better than you
Ain’t no lie
I can do better than you
Any time
I can do better than you
Ain’t it a crime
Cos I can do better than you

Comin’ out across the nation you demand your stripes before your time
It’s an age-old explanation, everything comes to those who wait in line
Ooh yeah

I can do better than you
Ain’t no lie
I can do better than you
Any time
I can do better than you
Ain’t it a crime
Cos I can do better than you
I can do better than you
Ain’t no lie
I can do better than you
Any time
I can do better than you
Ain’t it a crime
Cos I can do better than you
Ain’t no lie
Any time
Ain’t it a crime
Cos I can do better than you
Take Another Look

I got a message from a friend
He called the other day
He said listen to me boy
Your little girl’s been out to play
I didn’t wanna be lonely
And now I know I’m the only one to keep on tryin’
Keep on tryin, keep on tryin’ to hold on

Take another look at this heart of mine
Take another chance on the other side Everybody thinks that were doin’ fine
They don’t really care if it’s on the line

I always sound so worried on the telephone
But you keep tellin’ me that there’s nothin’ wrong
Who do you think you’re foolin’? I don’t wanna be rulin’ you but I
Keep on tryin, keep on tryin’, keep on tryin to hold on

Take another look at this heart of mine
Take another chance on the other side
Everybody thinks that were doin’ fine
They don’t really care if it’s on the line

Just take another look at this heart of mine
Take another chance on the other side
Everybody thinks that were doin’ fine
They don’t really care if it’s on the line

Open your eyes, you’re tellin’ me lies
So drop you disguise, I ain’t playing along
I trusted in you, what do you do? Look what you’re doin to my heart
Yeah, look what you’re doin to my heart

Just take another look
Take another look

Just take another look at this heart of mine
Take another chance on the other side
Everybody thinks that were doin’ fine
They don’t really care if it’s on the line

Just take another look at this heart of mine
Take another chance on the other side
Everybody thinks that were doin’ fine
They don’t really care if it’s on the line
Take another look
Take another look
Crankin’ Up The Handle

Anna takes a cab to the Holiday Inn, head’s in a spin
She’s not sure what she’s doin’ but she’s gonna do it anyway
Takes an up, takes a down, takes an anyways in sideways
But there’s a gleam in her eye cause she knows she’ll never have to try
Cos she’s crankin’ up the handle
Blowin out the candles one at a time
Ain’t no innuendo
She’s crankin’ up the handle
Followin’ blind

Frankie takes a stroll to the liquor store wants to buy some more
But the man with the plan said he threw him out an hour ago
So he’s back with a map, fills the lining up with Iodine
Cos on a night like this it’s hit or miss, he don’t wanna be kissed

Cos he’s crankin’ up the handle
Blowin’ out the candles one at a time
Ain’t no innuendo
He’s crankin’ up the handle
Followin’ blind

Yeah yeah he’s crankin’ up the handle
Blowin’ out the candles one at a time
Ain’t no innuendo
He’s crankin’ up the handle
Followin’ blind

Oh Rose

Everybody told me this isn’t right
I won’t be able to handle the fight
You were all I wanted love to be
Still all my friends, they say forget it
But tell me what do they know about us
What do they know about you and me

Oh Rose, take away this misery
Cant you see, oh Rose, you mean everything to me
Set me free, oh Rose

You’re in no hurry ’cause time is on your side
But it’s gone too far to make me run and hide
Livin’ for a dream was never part of it all
They say I lost my pride before the fall
But tell me what do they know about us
What do they know about you and me

Oh Rose, take away this misery
Can’t you see, oh Rose, you mean everything to me
Set me free

Caught in the middle
Watchin’ the walls closing in
Don’t let me take it alone
Don’t make me fake it on the telephone

Oh Rose, Take away this misery
Cant you see, oh Rose, you mean everything to me
Set me free, oh Rose
Take away this misery
Can’t you see, oh Rose, you mean everything to me
Set me free
Oh Rose


Growin’ Up Too Fast

Baby Come Back
Rip It Up

Think I’m In Love
Where Are You Now
Baby’s Got A Gun
Never In A Million Years
Call Me Automatic
A Day In The Life
I Wanna Be Alone Tonight
Burning Down

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?
