My number came up today They're sending me across the Waves I don't like the ocean, but I'm told that my emotions Tend to lead me astray Promise me you'll be my gal You'll send a post just once in a while You'll sleep beside my dirty clothing Stay up every night just hoping I'll be okay I'll make it but All in all, it's all the still the same I'm in love, you're not coming back to me Hold me down, let the water run over all I've done Till I'm back in your arms again Hold the phone, you say I make no sense Okay I'll back things up, I'm dropping all pretense So let me start by saying, all I done with you Was in the way of Self-defense You see the world's been kind, oh but most times cruel And I've lived long enough to know when I'm the fool Baby if I'm going off to war I gotta know exactly who I'm doing it for So don't fake it All in all, it's all the still the same I'm in love, you're not coming back to me Hold me down, let the water run over all I've done Till I'm back in your arms again Woah oh oh I'm lonely love, lonely love Let me know where you are I'll go there no matter how far I'll rise up from hell to your star It must be love just because It's the only thing I'm sure of Do you remember when we stole the treasure chest? Just you and me then, I like those times best Would it matter baby if I said I die to go back there again Would I pass your test? Well girl I take what I can get cause... All in all, it's all the still the same I'm in love, you're not coming back to me Hold me down, let the water run over all I've done From the valley bold to the setting sun Let the people see all that's meant to be That I was right for you and you were right for me Take me from the guns, and from the front and back in your arms

Baby don't look that way I'm going to go but then I'm coming to stay Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah I never know what to say You make a sad face every time I go away Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Hold the fort for the night I'll be back tomorrow babe They always keeping everybody Off the phones for the night But I got a call I gotta make I gotta get the word out on the street Baby don't lose your sleep Every little bit it goes a long way Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Tomorrow's another day When the sun comes up it'll all be okay Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah I always know when I'm right There's a feeling in my stomach And my hands get sweaty Tonight's the night for me to strike I'd love to take a holiday but Baby don't you know I got Work To Do... Never ask my reasons why I'm doing what I do, no matter what I try But it keeps my mind occupied The city is alive, the city is alive with Work To Do...

Come on baby let it all out now All we hear about are selfish schemes The dreams that don't work out You can't keep down what’s underneath now You may never get over You may never get over You may never get over it How many times must I tell you you're the one? I've made up my mind Have my notebooks confiscated Look at the lines Strip my pages back to front There’s nothing to find There’s not much to say Except nothing lasts forever All your livelong on the railroad And all that track you laid Never paid for the years of the life you gave away You broke your back on somebody else’s load And you never get over And you never get over And you never get over it You’re a little bit older And a little bit older And you're getting too old for this How many times must I tell you you’re the one? I've made up my mind Don't matter what your friends are saying Look at the sky at the stars and at the sun There’s nothing to find there's not much to say except nothing lasts forever Keep your baby keep it baby Keep it till it drives you crazy On and on and on and on is not enough for you You don't know what you're missing Till you stop look and listen On and on and on and on it breaks my heart in two But how many times? How many times? I've mind up my mind, how many times? How many times must I tell you you're e the one I've made up my mind How many times must I tell you you're the one I've made up mind

I been listening for your footsteps at my door I've done this kind of thing a thousand times or more And after every time I tell myself it's over cause it Doesn't feel right, it wasn't that funny but we Laughed all night just like we been buddies But what about before? That musta been somebody else My head is filling up with every kind of dream A couple buckets I'll be bursting at the seams So can't you tell me something certain Something more than just it Doesn't feel right, I know I'm not funny but you Laughed all night, just like we been be buddies But what about before? You musta been somebody else Hold on to your love Cause that's what got you here Cause that's what makes you tough Hold on with your gloves We got a hot one here I didn't make this up I been watching children play all afternoon And I gotta say there are things I never thought I do Like trip a little kid just to watch him fall You know it doesn't look right, I know it's not funny but they Laugh all night, so much for your buddies And what about before They must have been somebody else The sickness comes and goes and keeps me in my bed A fatal flower grows from deep inside my head A single sniff and I go back to every single time it Felt so right when it felt so funny it was Strange and light like a feather on your tummy When I think about before I wish I'd been somebody else

Complications can’t you see what the problem is Now even strangers say I’m out of my head You asked for love I gave you plastic explosives instead Tie me up and tie me down Glad it’s over now Glad to see you're still around Glad it’s over now All the problems came and went They came and went away Long gone to stay Come on sister don't you listen to troubled dreams? Back home I used to care what everyone thought My whole perspective changed the day I was finally caught Tie me up and tie me down Glad it’s over now Glad to see you're still around I'm just glad it’s over now All the bedrooms came and went Each night was spent Just holding on to the covers so tight Keeping both ears out for the bumps in the night Going chick-chick-boom Pretty soon we would find something out But what about Boom boom she boom boom boom she boom she boom bu bu boom boom boom Line em’ up and knock em’ down Can't you see it’s over now Time to go has come around Don't you see it’s over now All (something something) Simon says And Simon says: Step up to the edge Keep your hands at your side Now just walk straight ahead With your arms open wide Put the pieces down think I found What we both figured out Let’s cut it out

Wake up, slow down.... Keep up the good sound Look up and look around You rock like sugar and spice Notice the finer things Not everybody gets a diamond ring But everybody gets something You rock like sugar and spice I don't know but I've been told Love is silver, love is gold Love is all you need to use to buy your freedom I just wrapped up another day I'm headed back for the subway No matter what they say I don't believe, I don't believe it Wake up, slow down… Keep up the good sound look up and look around. You rock like sugar and spice. Notice the finer things Not everybody going to get your diamond ring But everybody gets something You rock like sugar Please know what I'm going through I don't wanna spend my life in solitude, it’s so long But I wish upon a movie star I wonder baby where you are Alone above the world so high Alone in love I don't believe in Wake up, slow down..... but keep up the good sound look up and look around You rock like sugar and spice Please know what I'm going through I don't wanna spend my life in solitude, it’s so long But I wish upon a movie star I wonder baby where you are Alone above the world so high Alone in love I don't believe in love I don't believe in love
