Nothing But The Wheel

When I'm past the boulevards
Out here underneath the stars
I've been flyin' past the houses, farms and fields
 
Leavin' all I know, back home
Rushin' through the cold night air
I'm holding on to nothin' but the wheel
 
Stayin' clear of the interstates
I'm seekin' out these old two lanes
And tryin' to explain the way I feel
 
'Til all at once it's half past three
And it's down to the trust and me
And I'm holdin' on to nothing but the wheel
 
I've been trying to drive you off my mind
Let it that way be, I can leave it all behind
 
An' 41 goes on and on
And the lights go winding in the dawn
And the sky's the color now of polished steel
 
An' the only think I know for sure
You don't want me anymore
Then I'm holdin' on to nothing but the wheel
 
I've been trying to drive you off my mind
An' let it that way baby, I can leave it all behind
 
And the only thing I know for sure
Is that you don't want me anymore
An' I'm holdin' on to nothing but the wheel
An' I'm holdin' on to nothing but the wheel
 
Gettin' down old 41
An' 41 takes me on and on
An' the lights go winding in the dawn
An' I'm holdin' on in the corner, yeah
 
I'm holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on, holdin' on
An' the only thing I know for sure
Is you don't want me anymore
An' I'm holding on to nothin' but the wheel
 

Physical Form

[Verse 1]
We were in a room so small
I could see the freckles on your arms
Making friends with all four walls
'Cause you thought when you turned your back, you'd do no harm
 
[Pre-Chorus]
There's a quiet place
Sometimes I hide in my mind
Every time I go there, I'm OK
But I can't stay inside the lines
 
[Chorus]
Do your eyes see me where I'm standing?
You're not blind, so why am I invisible?
Do your eyes see me where I'm standing?
All my life, I've been here in physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
 
[Verse 2]
Suddenly the lights come on
Everything is drenched in finer things
I can feel this hope too gone
I'm bathing in the reign of future kings
 
[Pre-Chorus]
But there's a quiet place
Sometimes I hide in my mind
Every time I go there, I'm OK
But I can't stay inside the lines
 
[Chorus]
Do your eyes see me where I'm standing?
You're not blind, so why am I invisible?
Do your eyes see me where I'm standing?
All my life, I've been here in physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
(Oh, oh, oh)
Physical form
 
[Outro]

Caroline, Yes

You've done well my boy, my oh my
I bet you thought that you had won this time
Watch your back because revenge is sweet
And you are everything I wanna be
 
You got everything, so why, oh why
Did you have to take Caroline?
I bet you thought that was the death of me
'Cause you are everything I wanna be
 
In my life
In my life
 
You got your way now and I got mine
But mine is better and it took less time
People say now that you look like me
'Cause you are everything I wanna be
 
In my life
In my life
 
'Cause you are everything I wanna be
 
In my life
In my life
In my life
In my life
 

Lower The Tone

[Verse 1]
Now we're alone, idly chit-chatting away
Could we lower the tone?
Lower the tone, lower the tone
Touch me
I'm done with conversation babe, let all your inhibitions lay low
Could we lower the tone?
Lower the tone
 
[Chorus]
We've got nothing else to say
Don't make me give the game away
Take me like you want me, babe
I'll be yours and that's okay
Shower me with kisses
The way your breath against my skin makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand tall
Feel like I've not felt before now
 
[Interlude]
 
[Verse 2]
Now we're alone, show me something no one else knows
Could we lower the tone?
Lower the tone, lower the tone
Touch me
I'm done with complications babe, just let our situation unfold
Could we lower the tone?
Lower the tone
 
[Chorus]
We've got nothing else to say
Don't make me give the game away
Take me like you want me, babe
I'll be yours and that's OK
Shower me with kisses
The way your breath against my skin makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand tall
Feel like I've not felt before now
 
[Interlude]
 
[Bridge]
Lower the tone so I can love you more
The lower you go, the more I am yours
'Cause your dark side is beautiful
Yeah, your dark side is beautiful to me
Lower the tone so I can love you more
(To me, you are an animal)
The lower you go, the more I am yours
(Sensitive and wonderful)
'Cause your dark side is beautiful
(You make me feel incredible)
Yeah, your dark side is beautiful
(Together we unravel)
 
[Breakdown]
Boy, you lock and you load
Deliver me all of your loving
Boy, you lock and you load
Deliver me all of your loving
Boy, you lock and you load
Deliver me all of your loving
 
[Outro]
Now we're alone, idly chit-chatting away
Could we lower the tone?
Lower the tone, lower the tone
 

Anna

Anna, I had way too much tonight
You know, we better call it a night
You will never see what you did to me
Dear Anna
 
Anna, it's not worth the fight
Look, there are tears in our eyes
You will never see what you did to me
Dear Anna
 
Anna, I had way too much tonight
You know, we better call it a night
You will never see what you mean to me
Dear Anna
 
Anna, it's not worth the fight
Look, there are tears in my lies
You will never see what you mean to me
Dear Anna
 
Dear Anna
 

Wait For The Rain

[Verse 1]
It was 4 in the morning, tears down my face
I chose to call it time
I tried hard for you baby, no one else mattered
I'd hoped that we'd be fine
As I walked down the hallway, debris falling
Feels like the end of time
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I need to wash away the hours I cried last night
 
[Chorus 1]
I cannot wait for the rain
To remove this lover's pain
I cannot wait for the rain
To come and fill me up again
 
[Verse 2]
Were you scared when I went away?
Did it cross your mind I was just as broken?
You remain underneath the dust
Now the very worst hasn’t gone unspoken
I just cried, I only loved once, you were my whole life
Now you’re confined to my darkest memories
 
[Pre-Chorus]
I need to wash away the hours I cried last night
 
[Chorus 1]
I cannot wait for the rain
To remove this lover's pain
I cannot wait for the rain
To come and fill me up again
 
[Chorus 2]
I cannot wait for the rain
To dissolve a lover's flame
I cannot wait for the rain
To make a woman of me again
 
[Bridge]
Pour me a drink and bring it over here
I don’t want no ice, I’m already cold enough now
In our last days I would lie with you
And you would never even sensed the end was coming soon
(I’m trying but it hurts like mad)
Baby, what you doing now?
Acting like you don’t even care
That the world outside is broken down
And my lungs have no air
 
[Chorus 2 - Variation]
I cannot wait for the rain
I cannot wait for the rain
To make a woman of me again
 

Just a Game

Tried to find the one that’s right
I could be the one you chose
Take a breath, fall asleep
Maybe in your mind
I could be the one you chose
 
I need it
I can see it, never be this
And if you need it, then I could be there now
 
And I can hear it, I can feel it
And I will be this if you could be this now
 
Ooooooooooooh
 
Oh see, lover
The distance to cover is so far
I’ve been living outside the lines
I’ve been living outside the lines
Never ending with you
 
And I need it, and I feel it
If you need this, then I could be this now
 
And I can see it, if you can see it
And I would be there, if you would be there now
 
Oooooooohhhhhh
 
It was a game to you
It was a game to
It was a game to
It was a game to you…
 
I admit it was a game to you
It was a game to
It was a game to
It was a game to you…
 
Ahhhhhhhhhh
 
(Never been loved before)
(Have you ever been loved before)
(Have you never been loved before)
(Have you ever been loved before)
 

Screaming Surrender

A sculpture of angel in ice stands before me.
The more I hold her the more she melts away.
She's a sculpture of an angel in ice, just not made for me.
So sad as she left, she said 'please don't wait'
 
But I still hear her whispers carried in the breeze,
Saying, 'baby, lets live while our souls are still free.'
But I'm down on my knees, crushed to the floor,
Screaming surrender like never before,
I knew it was wrong, still trying to hold on.
And I'm down on my knees, with myself to blame.
 
All my faith was in pieces, like a broken glass,
As I tried to collect it, I cut myself.
After time all the pieces were all replaced,
As my love for her faded, to the silent place.
 
But I still hear her whispers carried in the breeze,
Saying, 'baby, lets live while our souls are still free.'
But I'm down on my knees, close to the floor,
Screaming surrender like never before,
I knew it was wrong, still trying to hold on.
But I'm down on my knees, with myself to blame,
Cause I'm too weak to blow out the flame.
 
I'm still trying to hold on.
Still trying to hold,
Still trying to hold on.
So lets live while our souls are still free.
 
But I'm down on my knees, with myself to blame.
Cause I'm too weak to blow out this flame.
 

Baby's on Fire

Baby's on fire
Better throw her in the water
Look at her laughing
Like a heifer to the slaughter
 
Baby's on fire
And all the laughing boys are bitching
Waiting for photos
Oh the plot is so bewitching
 
Rescuers row, row
Do your best to change the subject
Blow the wind blow, blow
Lend some assistance to the object
 
Photographers snip snap
Take your time, she's only burning
This kind of experience
Is necessary for her learning
 
If you'll be my flotsam
I could be half the man I used to
They said, 'You were hot stuff
And that's what baby's been reduced to'
 
Juanita and Juan
Very clever with maracas
Makin' their fortunes
Selling second-hand tobaccos
 
Juan dances at Chico's
And when the clients are evicted
He empties the ashtrays
And pockets all that he's collected
 
But baby's on fire
And all the instruments agree that
Her temperature's rising
But any idiot would know that
 

Do It

[Verse 1]
You can write the next line, baby you've been wasting time
We can make our bodies rhyme, our lives intertwine
And if you've gone cold, you don't let it show
There's a deeper place that we can both go
You tell me that I'm wide eyed, baby you're just being kind
Never going outside, we are working overtime
Yeah, I do like when I'm staying the night
With the temperature just right
 
[Chorus]
We could write another duet
Or instead babe, we could just do it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Let's do something that we might regret
Take your guard down, I can see through it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
 
[Verse 2]
You call me by my real name, I will keep you entertained
Everybody speculate, we've got things to recreate
Can we do this without all of the lights? (They're awfully bright)
With the temperature just right
 
[Chorus]
We could write another duet
Or instead babe, we could just do it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Let's do something that we might regret
Take your guard down, I can see through it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
 
[Bridge]
And the road that I dream on
Is the road we're already on
And it feels like we are already strong
So I won't have to wait long
For a while now, we've been getting on
And it feels like if we could get it on
You'd be more than just someone
We could move things along
 
[Chorus]
We could write another duet
Or instead babe, we could just do it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Let's do something that we might regret
Take your guard down, I can see through it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
 
[Chorus]
We could write another duet
Or instead babe, we could just do it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
Let's do something that we might regret
Take your guard down, I can see through it
Do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it, do it
 

coitus

In the lovers' domain, like a dream too wide for the brain
I can't but hold to your shoulders like the edge of a cliff
And strain, take pity on a boy deployed in a sandpaper palmed infinity
I beg you take the time to mine good ore from me
 
I beg you lay you down on me
Etch it on my psyche, employ it in my body nightly
I'm as early, find somebody soon, find some boys
Naked and a poorly made
 
Take pity, shook by your cautious broadstroke battery
And a fireman had bloomed in mercury
I beg you rain it down on me
Make grace, lost in your sandpaper palmed infinity
 
I can't but hold to your shoulders like the edge of a cliff and plead
And if I met you a blue man like your grace
I beg you rain it down on me
 

Atletico (The Only One)

[Verse 1]
From the back of the room, you were holding my glance
I was trying to be cool but I can't really dance
Is it something to do with the way that you move?
In a matter of seconds, I'm falling for you, for you
Are you the one I came for?
I think I'm gonna get to know ya
But does it leave me vulnerable
If I make a beeline for ya?
 
[Pre-Chorus]
(Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful boy)
I could stand and admire, or give in to desire
(Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful boy)
Feeling shier and shier, think I'll call it a night
 
[Chorus]
(Eh, eh, eh)
I leave my light on
I'm Atletico, but I'm back here on my own
(Eh, eh, eh)
I leave my light on
Why'd I let you go?
Now I'm back here on my own
 
[Verse 2]
From the comfort of my home, I am picturing you
And I should've said something, but I thought it was cool
To be looking in fazed by the way that you move
I don't need to reflect, 'cause I'm regretting not speaking to you
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
(Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful boy)
Tell me where will I find you, so we can combine
(Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful boy)
I hope you're guarded by the night
I'll leave on my light
 
[Chorus]
Eh, eh, eh
I leave my light on
I'm Atletico, but I'm back here on my own
Eh, eh, eh
I leave my light on
Why'd I let you go?
Now I'm back here on my own
 
[Post-Chorus]
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
 
[Chorus]
I leave my light on
I'm Atletico, but I'm back here on my own
(Eh, eh, eh)
I leave my light on
Why'd I let you go?
Now I'm back here on my own
 
[Outro]
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(I leave my light on)
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(Eh, eh, eh)
Yeah, you are the only one
(I leave my light on, why'd I let you go?)
Yeah, you are the only one
Yeah, you are the only one
Yeah, you are the only one
Yeah, you are the only one

Reborn

[Verse 1]
We shed
Love then grew
Grew apart
But I never knew
The harm
That you were doing
To me
All along
Our love's not red, it's nothing
 
[Chorus]
Give up and start from now
Nothing can hurt or harm me now
I am reborn
(Find another name for me, find another name for me)
I am reborn
(Find another name for me, finally transform me, yeah)
 
[Verse 2]
These are
New beginnings
Won't let
The past determine
Where I
Go from here
My ghosts have turned to nothing
 
[Chorus]
Give up and start from now
Nothing can hurt or harm me now
I am reborn
(Find another name for me, find another name for me)
I am reborn
(Find another name for me, finally transform me, yeah)
 
[Bridge]
Have they found a cure for me?
Have they found a cure for me yet?
Have they found a cure for me?
Have they found a cure for me yet?
Have they found a cure for me?
Have they found a cure for me yet?
My heart returns to nothing
 
[Chorus]
Give up and start from now
Nothing can hurt or harm me now
I am reborn
(Find another name for me, find another name for me)
I am reborn
(Find another name for me, finally transform me, yeah)
 

Please Don't Love Me

No, don't love me!
Please don't love me!
No, no, no!
 
I know that we had a lot.
Our life was fine,
And we were gold.
We had the perfect time.
 
Now, I kinda disappeared.
I stay alone, won't trust anyone.
What did happen here?
Is it really what I want?
 
You saved me, you held me.
You gave me so much hope.
And still I couldn't feel nor see
That you were the perfect soul.
 
I hurt you, but still you're here,
'Cause you can't leave me.
You are too good for me,
But still you love me.
 
No, don't love me!
Please don't love me!
I'll be okay, trust me.
But please don't love me…
…Anymore!
 
There are many mistakes that I did,
Many things that really went wrong.
Many bad words came across my lips,
But you still keep writing love songs.
 
Why do you stay by my side?
Can you really stand this all?
You are shining so bright,
I don't want to see you ever fall!
 
I hurt you, but still you're here,
'Cause you can't leave me.
You are too good for me,
But still you love me.
 
No, don't love me!
Please don't love me!
I'll be okay, trust me.
But please don't love me…
…Anymore!
 
You deserve so much better!
Please go on and search for someone else,
Someone who really matters,
Someone who'd for you go through hell.
 
No, don't love me!
Please don't love me!
I'll be okay, trust me.
But please don't love me…
…Anymore!
 
I hurt you, but still you're here,
'Cause you can't leave me.
You are too good for me,
But still you love me.
 
No, don't love me!
Please don't love me!
I'll be okay, trust me.
But please don't love me…
…Anymore!
 
Now stop loving me!
Please don't love me,
Don't love me any longer.
We'll both be stronger…
…Some day.
 

Black Ninja

In the darkness, she's dancing with her lover
In the silence of her mountain hall she'll rest forever
 
It's a life of a warrior, who never comes out
It's a song without music, she's one of a kind
She's a black ninja!
You can't see her in the night
 
Close your eyes, feel the magic of the night
Lonely voices whispering her ancient name
 
It's a life of a warrior, who never comes out
It's a song without music, she's one of a kind
She's a black ninja!
You can't see her in the night
 
She's a black ninja!
You can feel her in the dark
 
It's a life of a warrior, who never comes out
It's a song without music, she's one of a kind
She's a black ninja!
You can't see her in the night
She's a black ninja!
You can feel her in the dark
She's a black ninja!
She's a black ninja!
 

Familiar Hell

I've been in heaven and underground
maybe now I'm just lost and found
living in a false fantasy
safe from ruthless reality
 
I'm stranded in this paradise
so tell me what to sacrifice
to get out of this tragedy
out of insanity
 
Is familiar hell
better than unknown heaven?
Only one voice
behind every choice
Living under a spell
24/7
Lost in confusion
ignorance and illusion
 
I want out of insanity!
 
I suffer like a hollow soul
trying to be complete and whole
I'm dreaming like a madman
about things I don't understand
 
I'm stranded in this paradise
so tell me what to sacrifice
to get out of this tragedy
out of insanity
 
Is familiar hell
better than unknown heaven?
Only one voice
behind every choice
Living under a spell
24/7
Turn the lights
on tonight
 
Is familiar hell
better than unknown heaven?
Living under a spell
24/7
Is familiar hell
better than unknown heaven?
 
'Listen to me
What if
we only believe that we can choose our reality?
What if
the truth we know is just a profitable fantasy?
If we view the world with closed eyes
and only look after ourselves
it's easy to swallow all the juicy lies
But who's gonna clean up the mess?
So I ask you one more time:'
 
Is familiar hell
better than unknown heaven?
Only one voice
behind every choice
Living under a spell
24/7
 
Is familiar hell
better than unknown heaven?
Only one voice
behind every choice
Living under a spell
24/7
Turn the lights
on tonight

86d - No Escort

Hey don’t worry about it
Wait, don’t wanna learn your name
 
The lines become obscure
This hit feels so impure
Your name and face is blurred
Cause I only care for her
 
Hey, don’t worry bout it
Wait, don’t wanna learn your name
I don’t care about it
Hey
 
These feelings come and go
High ceiling
Crushing low
Slow breathing on my knees
She’s all I ever need
 
Hey, don’t worry about it
Wait, don’t wanna learn your name
I don’t care about it
Hey
 

Dancing With Character

[Verse 1]
Keep it light on your toes and forget what you know
Time to take the floor
Put my hand on your back, feel your body react
You are a natural
We can jive 'til our footsteps travel a thousand miles tonight
Keep it light, you’ll be led, hazel eyes
 
[Chorus]
He was dancing with character
Such a wonderful dancer, it embarrassed her
He was dancing with character
He was always a fan of her and married her
Now he’s dancing alone, losing control
Moving from the memory in his bones
Dancing with character and he’ll never stop dancing 'til he’s back with her
 
[Verse 2]
Got a room, bought a house
Tried to save a good amount to start a family
Love is all when it lasts, now she only ever dances in my memory
As the language is fading, I find that the only way to talk is through my moves
I’m with you, hazel eyes
 
[Chorus]
He was dancing with character
Such a wonderful dancer, it embarrassed her
He was dancing with character
He was always a fan of her and married her
Now he’s dancing alone, losing control
Moving from the memory in his bones
Dancing with character and he’ll never stop dancing 'til he’s back with her
 
[Bridge]
Now she’s gone, is she free?
And is she watching over me?
Now I’m here, just me, so will anybody dance with me?
Keep it light, you’ll be led, hazel eyes
In the night, you'll be there, hazel eyes
 
[Chorus]
He was dancing with character
Such a wonderful dancer, it embarrassed her
He was dancing with character
He was always a fan of her and married her
Now he’s dancing alone, losing control
Moving from the memory in his bones
Dancing with character and he’ll never stop dancing 'til he’s back with her
He was dancing with character
He’ll never stop dancing 'til he’s back with her
 

Rose Garden

[Verse 1]
You're uninvited, you're kicking at my door
Feeling restless, keep coming back for more
A heavy burden pulls me to the floor
Taking over, make no mistake I'm sure
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Body, don't give up on me
Who are you to judge me, pulling at my arms and legs?
Body, don't give up on me
Everyone is powerless, unable to help anyway
 
[Chorus]
What you're going through, I can't imagine
How you barely blink, like nothing has happened to you
I could plant a rose garden
For you to lay your head down on
And I could plant a rose garden
For you
 
[Verse 2]
Taking a toll, but I hold my head up high
I stay unfazed, but there's water in my eyes
Now
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Body, don't give up on me
Who are you to judge me, pulling at my arms and legs?
Body, don't give up on me
Everyone is powerless, unable to help anyway
 
[Chorus]
What you're going through, I can't imagine
How you barely blink, like nothing has happened to you
And I could plant a rose garden
For you to lay your head down on
And I could plant a rose garden
For you
 
[Bridge]
Yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
 
[Chorus]
And I could plant a rose garden
For you to lay your head down on
And I could plant a rose garden
For you
And I could plant a rose garden
For you to lay your head down on
And I could plant a rose garden
For you
 

Tessie

[Spoken Intro]
Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
Tessie is the tune they always sung
Tessie echoed April through October nights
After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
Tessie is a maiden with a love
She doesn’t know the meaning of her sight
She’s got a comment full of love
 
And sometimes when the game is on the line
Tessie always carried them away
Up the road from third base to Huntington
The boys would always sing and sway
 
[Chorus]
Two! Three! Four!
Tessie, Nuf Ced McGreevey shouted
We’re not here to mess around
Boston you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn’t live without you
Tessie, you are the only only only
 
The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
They found their seats had all been sold
McGreevey led the charge into the park
Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston’s tenth man could not be wrong
Up from third base to Huntington
They’d sing another victory song
 
[Chorus]
Two! Three! Four!
Tessie, Nuff Ced McGreevy shouted
We’re not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn’t live without you
Tessie, you are the only, only, only
 
The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
Boston’s tenth man could not be wrong
Up from third base to Huntington
They’d sing another victory song
 
[Chorus]
Two! Three! Four!
Tessie, Nuff Ced McGreevy shouted
We’re not here to mess around
Boston, you know we love you madly
Hear the crowd roar to your sound
Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn’t live without you
Tessie, you are the only, only, only
 
Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn’t live without you
Boston you are the only only only
 
Don’t blame us if we ever doubt you
You know we couldn’t live without you
Red Sox you are the only only only
 

Someone Out There

[Chorus]
Someone out there loves you
Someone out there is lonely too
They may not know it, they may be trying to tell you
And you may not know 'til you pass on a street
Your heads turn and your eyes lock and you feel complete
Someone out there loves you
 
[Verse 1]
When the world’s got you down and there’s no end in sight
Do you give up? Keep your eyes shut?
When the days are drawn out
Feels like nothing is going your way
Do you give up? Keep your eyes shut?
 
[Pre-Chorus]
You can rest assured you’re not the only one
 
[Chorus]
Someone out there loves you
Someone out there is lonely too
They may not know it, they may be trying to tell you
And you may not know 'til you pass on a street
Your heads turn and your eyes lock and you feel complete
Someone out there loves you
 
[Verse 2]
When the pages don’t turn and the words are all blurred
Don’t you give up, don’t you give up
When you reach out a hand and courageously ask me to dance
But the music stops, keep your head up
 
[Pre-Chorus]
You can rest assured you’re not the only one
 
[Chorus]
Someone out there loves you
Someone out there is lonely too
They may not know it, they may be trying to tell you
And you may not know 'til you pass on a street
Your heads turn and your eyes lock and you feel complete
Someone out there loves you
Someone (somewhere) out there loves you
 
[Outro]
You can rest assured you’re not the only one
You can rest assured you’re not the only one
You can rest assured you’re not the only one
You can rest assured you’re not the only one
 

Take the Money and Run

Hoo hoo
 
This here's a story 'bout Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
Two young lovers with nothing better to do
Than sit around the house, get high, and watch the tube
And here's what happened when they decided to cut loose
 
They headed down to, ooh, old El Paso
That's where they ran into a great big hassle
Billy Joe shot a man while robbing his castle
Bobbie Sue took the money and run
Hoo hoo hoo
 
Go on, take the money and run
Go on, take the money and run
Hoo hoo hoo
Go on, take the money and run
Go on, take the money and run
Hoo hoo hoo
 
Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas
You know he knows just exactly what the facts is
He ain't gonna let those two escape justice
He makes his living off of the people's taxes
 
Bobbie Sue, whoa, whoa, she slipped away
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day
They got the money, hey
You know they got away
They headed down south, and they're still running today
Singing
 
Go on, take the money and run
Go on, take the money and run
Hoo hoo hoo
Go on, take the money and run, oh Lord
Go on, take the money and run
Hoo hoo hoo
 
Yeah, yeah
Go on, take the money and run (Yeah, yeah)
Hoo hoo hoo
Go on, take the money and run, oh Lord
Go on, take the money and run (Yeah, yeah)
Hoo hoo hoo
Go on, take the money and run, oh Lord
 

Holocaust

Your eyes are almost dead
Can't get out of bed
And you can't sleep
You're sitting down to dress
And you're a mess
You look in the mirror
You look in your eyes
Say you realize
Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes
As far as they can,
They don't just care.
They stood on the stairs
Laughing at your errors
Your mother's dead
She said, 'Don't be afraid.'
Your mother's dead
You're on your own
She's in her bed
Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care
You're a wasted face
You're a sad-eyed lie
You're a holocaust.
 

Strictly Business

I shot the sheriff
('Don't get too close because you might get shot')
I shot the sheriff
 
Try to answer to the master or the MC rap God is no joke
On the lyric - it's hard to be modest
I knew I was the man with the master plan
To make you wiggle and jiggle, like gelatin
Just think while I sink, into the brain structure
(Don't sleep on the E) You see, somethin' might rupture
It don't take time for me to blow your mind
Take a second to wreck it because you're dumb and blind
So just lounge.. cause you're a MC clown
Go join the circus.. EPMD's in town
 
Total chaos -- no mass confusion
Rhymes so hypnotizin' known to cause an illusion
Like a magician.. who pulls a rabbit out a hat, son
I pull them all like a .44 Magnum
MC freeze stop look and listen, and try to imagine
It's travellin' the speed of light, but everything's motion
Is frightening.. plus the thought you alone
You now enter dimension, called the Twilight Zone
You're terrified.. plus you can't bear the thought
You and I one-on-one, in the Land of the Lost
You start to shiver.. but then you scream, my friend
Yo, wake up Muttley, because you're dreamin' again
But next time I'm on the scene, do not try to diss us
Keep your mouth shut sucker duck, because I'm Strictly Business
 
I shot the sheriff
 
This is the rap season.. where the E starts pleasin'
Girls around the world no need to be skeezin'
When I roll I stroll, cool always pack a tool
Just in case.. a brother acts a fool
I've got the energy, to put the girls in the frenzy
Put it in shock when I rock, give it up I'm not stingy
Make sure I don't bore when I'm on the dance floor..
(Get busy, boy) Like you never saw before
Rhyme flow.. good to go.. after the show.. I'll pull your ho, boy
Rhyme flow.. good to go.. after the show.. I'll pull your ho, boy
Rhyme flow.. good to go.. after the show.. I'll pull your ho, boy
Rhyme flow.. good to go.. after the show.. I'll pull your ho, boy
(Yo, you sniff blow?) .. Hell no!
I got my whole life ahead of me, no time to be sniffin'
And my parents find out, then they start riffin'
So I stay, a-okay, cause I'm the E.. the R-I-C-K
 
MC's look me in my face, then their eyes get weak
Pulse rate descends.. heart rate increases
It's like beam me up, Scotty, I control your body
I'm as deadly as AIDS when it's time to rock a party
And all due respect, when I say mic check
Let a sucker slide once -- then I break his neck
So when I say jump, you reply, 'How high?'
Because I'm takin' no prisoners, so don't play hero and die
Cause you're a soldier.. and I'm a Green Beret
I do not think twice about the MC's I slay
So if you want to battle, I highly recommend this:
Bring your dog, mom, and dad.. because I'm Strictly Business
 
I shot the sheriff
 
Yo yo, you're still pickin' on that four-leaf clover?
Bring in the Sandman, sucker.. because it's over
My name is Erick Sermon and I'm back again
I see the heads still turnin' and my so-called friends
They smile in my face -- behind my back they talk trash
Mad and stuff -- because they don't have cash
Like the E-Double.. or the PMD
He drives a Corvette, I drive a Samurai Suzuki
I'm a locksmith.. with the key to fame
Never high on myself -- always stay the same
Play a lot because I'm hot, like a horse I trot
Around the track and back -- fatigued? No, I'm not
 
Well I'm the mellow, the fellow, the one who likes to say hello
To a fly girl that is good to go
With the slow tempo, and the off-beat rhyme flow
Cause when I am in action, there is no time for maxin'
Or relaxin' -- just subtractin' and reactin'
On a sucker MC who mouth keeps on yappin' and flappin'
I lose my cool, then I'll start slappin' and smackin'
You wanna roll? Then Albee start jackin' and cappin'
No time to lounge, I'm packin' and strappin'
At my point of attack I soar at you like an eagle
I'm the sheriff, and bitin' is illegal
So when I'm in town, I highly recommend this
You gots to chill, because I'm Strictly Business
 

The One with the Tambourine

Days, weeks, gauge years
Always just enough time to lose
The memories of spending seventeen with you
 
Those red strings: our insecurities
How everything moves
 
Those red strings: our insecurities
How everything moves
 

Will the Wolf Survive?

Through the chill of winter
Running across a frozen lake
Hunters hard on his trail
All odds are against him
With a family to provide for
But one thing he must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?
 
Drifting by the roadside
Climbs a strong and aging face
Wants to make some honest pay
Losing to the rainstorm
He's got two strong legs to guide him
Two strong arms keep him alive
Will the wolf survive?
 
Standing in the pouring rain
All alone in a world that's changed
Running scared now forced to hide
In a land where he once stood with pride
But he'll find his way by the morning light
 
Sounds across the nation
Coming from your hearts and minds
Battered drums and old guitars
Singing songs of passion
It's the truth that they all look for
Something they must keep alive
Will the wolf survive?
Will the wolf survive?
 

When Did You Stop Loving Me, When Did I Stop Loving You

You know, when you say your marriage vows, they're supposed to be for real
I mean, if you think back about what you really said about honor, loving and obeying till death do us part and all
But it shouldn't be that way, it should, it should, it should be lies because it turns out to be lies
If you don't honor what you said, you lie to God. The words should be changed
 
Ooh now as I recall, we tried a million times
Again and again and again, and that isn't all
I gave my love to you each time to make amends
Suddenly I start to realize I can't make it
 
Pretty birds fly away, I had to leave you for my health's sake
What to do? Make you pay, for leaving you, my fine, is to pay forever
So if a fresh new love comes in, I won't say those words again
Instead I'll say I'll try to love and protect you
With all my heart as long as you want me to baby
Ooh if I love again I'm gonna try a new way this time
 
Memories of the things we did; some we're proud of, some we hid
So when two people have to part, sometimes it makes them stronger
 
Do you remember all of the bullshit, baby?
You say you love me with all your heart
If you ever loved me with all of your heart
You'd never take a million dollars to part
 
I really tried, you know I tried, oh baby
Although we tried, all of those promises was nothin' but lies
I really tried, you know how hard I tried
All that rehearsing, baby
We really lied, didn't we baby?
And on top of that you have scandalized, my name
 
What I can't understand is if you love me
How could you turn me in to the police
Didn't I love you good and try to take care of you?
Best I could, you were so divine and your love was like mellow wine
 
Pains of love, miles of tears, enough to last me for my lifetime
Broken hearts last for years, so break away to the new-day sunshine
One thing I can promise, friend; I'll never be back again
But I'm not really bitter, babe
I wish you all the luck and all the love in the world
Good luck in the world
But I know you'll never be satisfied
No, you still want me standin' by your side
 
Memories haunt you all the time
I will never leave your mind
Got judgment on your side;
You've said bad things and you've lied
 
Still I remember some of the good things, baby
Like love after dark and picnics in parks
Those are the days I'll not forget in my life
 
I'd rather remember, remember the joy we shared baby
I'd rather remember all the fun we had
All I ever really wanted was
To love you and treat you right
All we did was fuss and fight
 
It don't matter baby
Take a lesson from it all (come on)
I never thought I'd see the day when
You'd put me through what you put me through
You tried your best
You say I gave you no rest
 
When did you stop loving me?
When did I stop loving you?
When did you stop loving me?
When did I stop loving you?
When did you stop loving me?
When did I stop loving you?
 

Friend of Mine

I'm broken
Don't touch me
To free my mind
 
You must be
A special friend of mine
 
My heart wants
To be set free
It's trapped inside
My body
And kept in time
 
This prison we walk around
Stepping without a sound
Slowly we're falling down
Shattered were homeward bound
I just want you to smile
 
Glee there upon your skull
Feeling the push and pull
Life never was so dull
For someone who lost the rules
Tears never fit you all the while
 
Don't let it hurt
Like a wave it builds
behind my head
And The color is red
 
Was I followed here
There are some words
Better left unsaid
Am I better dead
 
I'm broken
Don't touch me
To free my mind
You must be
A special friend of mine
 
My heart wants
To be set free
It's trapped inside
My body
And kept in time
 
Crawling around my room
Afraid that it's starting soon
Drinking my water down
Hoping that I would drown
I'm so close but I'm too far
 
Stopping to wait my turn
Wishing a line would burn
Tired of sitting here
Praying that you'd appear
But that's like wishing upon a star
 
Don't let it hurt
Like a wave it builds behind my head
The color is red
 
Was I followed here
There are some words better left unsaid
Am I better dead
 
I'm broken
Don't touch me
To free my mind
You must be
A special friend of mine
 
My heart wants
To be set free
It's trapped inside
My body
And kept in time
