lyrics

WALKIN' DISASTER

I was on the outside looking in
When I heard you saying that you needed a friend
Now I'm a walkin' disaster
My heart keeps beating faster
I was ridin' low, but now I'm ridin' high
Had to pinch myself because I swore I died
But I'm a walkin' disaster
My head keeps spinnin' faster

It's so fast
Since you came into my life.
Way too fast
Since you came into my life.


Rock me. Roll me. Move me. Love me.

I'm a walkin' disaster
My heart keeps pounding faster

It's so fast
Since you came into my life.
Way too fast
Since you came into my life.

SHE'S THE ONE

Down again, lost and lonely
You've just thrown away your only hope.
She's the one.

You saw her today
Didn't know what to say
But you knew you'd better not
Let her get away oh no.
She's the one.

And you tell yourself that you're not in love
She's the only thinking you've been thinking of
Why yourself that you're not in love?
When you know that she's the one.

She's the one.
You know that you love her.
She's the one.
Can't stop thinking of her.
She's the one. She's the one. She's the.
She's the one.
You know that you love her.
She's the one.
Can't stop thinking of her.
She is the one that you love.
She is the one that you love.


Even though the girl
Drives you out of your mind
She's the only woman you've been looking to find
For so long.
She's the one.

Give her a call
Write her a letter
Anything you can
But you know you've go to get her alone.
She's the one.

And you tell yourself that you're not in love
She's the only thinking you've been thinking of
Why yourself that you're not in love?
When you know that she's the one.

She's the one.
You know that you love her.
She's the one.
Can't stop thinking of her.
She's the one. She's the one. She's the.
She's the one.
You know that you love her.
She's the one.
Can't stop thinking of her.
She is the one that you love.
She is the one that you love.

LAST LOVE

And if I end it with bang
Could you ever be the same?
You no longer want my love
To me that means you want my blood

On a precipice above
Living only for your love
But if I ended it this way br>Would you ever love again?

Well you'd try and you'd try
But you'll cry when I die

I will not give up
Until I get your love
No I will not give up
Until I get your love


Park my car on junction street
Cause there's a train I've got to meet
And when it doesn't make it to the queue
What the hell are you supposed to do?

Well you'd try and you'd try
But you'll cry when I die

I will not give up
Until I get your love
No I will not give up
Until I get your love

I could go and get some rope
Does that give us any hope?
I should try to stop and change
Seems much easier to blame

Well you'd try and you'd try
But you'll cry when I die

I will not give up
Until I get your love
No I will not give up
Until I get your love

SING TO ME

Sing to me of your endless love
Sing to me with the stars above
My head is full
So my thoughts aren't true
I lie awake and i think of you

Sing to me of happy times
Sing to me with the ancient rhymes
Of maiden's fair
And ocean's blue
Of dragon's slain
Of your old grey goose.


I'm feeling lonely and i just can't see
The brighter days that lie ahead of me
My eyes are heavy but my heart is too
Sing to me. Why don't you sing to me?

Sing to me of my favorite things
Sing to me of the knights and queens
With their quivers full
And their hearts so true
Cause this night's so long and dark with gloom

I'm lost and lonely and i just can't see
The brighter days that lie ahead of me
My eyes are heavy but my heart is too
And it's tearing me in two
Sing your sweet song to me.

I'm lost and lonely and i just can't see
The brighter days that lie ahead of me
My eyes are heavy but my heart is too

I'm feelin' better but i still can't see
The brighter days that lie ahead of me
My heart is heavy but my eyes are too

GHOSTS (CAN'T SAY I LOVE YOU)

When I was young
I was taught to feel was wrong
Keep it bottled up inside
Your emotions you must hide

When you live your life that way so long
It's hard to tell the right from wrong

I've tried and I've tried
I can't say I love you
But you know I love you
Don't you know I always have?
I've tried and I've tried
And I can't say I love you
But you know I love you
And you know I always will


Back to when I'm young
And so much still feels undone
Nights they left me all alone
Seems my house was not a home

Words of love should have been for me
But instead they were screamed out thoughtlessly

I've tried and I've tried
I can't say I love you
But you know I love you
Don't you know I always have?
I've tried and I've tried
And I can't say I love you
But you know I love you
And you know I always will


Oh I love you so
But I can't say the words to let you know
when I think my past has finally moved along
The ghosts inside me lie and say I'm wrong

And the world revolves
And I'm getting older
But am I any different
Then I was all those years ago?

Because I've tried and I've tried
I can't say I love you
But you know I love you
Don't you know I always have?
I've tried and I've tried
And I can't say I love you
But you know I love you
And you know I always will

LEAVE HIM BEHIND

An early foggy morning
And he's left without a warning
Your waking up alone in bed

Although he's left a note for you
You can guess what he will do
He's going back to her instead

Stop wasting time
Make up your mind
Girl are you blind
Leave him behind

Baby if you want me
All you gotta do is call me
Baby i'm the one to make things right

Baby if you want me
All you gotta do is call me
Baby i'm the one to stay all night


Another early evening
And again you know he's leaving
Before you even ask him not to go

Cause you're the other woman
And you had to see this coming
You're second fiddle in his show

Stop wasting time
Make up your mind
Girl are you blind
Leave him behind

Baby if you want me
All you gotta do is call me
Baby i'm the one to make things right

Baby if you want me
All you gotta do is call me
Baby i'm the one to stay all night


You've been around enough to know by now
A love like his bound to rust
So take me in your arms
And let your feelings grow right now
I'm someone to trust
You can leave your demons in the dust

Stop wasting time
Make up your mind
Girl are you blind
Leave him behind

THE PRICE

It's over now we've said goodbye
we laughed out loud, but cried inside
Sure there were happy times, but now I am just cynical

As this bitter season ends
I wish that we could part as friends
It'd be easier if I weren't so apolitical

I stand jaded
Our love has completely faded
What's the price we pay for innocence?


Read it in your words and face
Knew that I should leave this place
But a busy man can put off almost anything

So often I'd reach out for you,
The trust was gone as you were to
Then the anger came 'cause once we would risk anything

I stand jaded
Our love has completely faded
My eyes are no longer shaded
What's the price we pay for innocence?


I walked through an bitter land I thought I'd never walk
I talk with the caustic tongue that others before me talked
Our love was alive and well, now it's lying dormant and still
It could return another time, but do you really think it will?

It saddens me to say goodbye,
I can no longer live this lie
You are a hollow man and once you seemed invincible

I stand jaded
Our love has completely faded
My eyes are no longer shaded
Unabated.
What's the price we pay for innocence?

STATUS EPILEPTICUS

You shake
And my heartbreak
Is unreal
All the things I feel
At the same time
Are crushing me
Is this crushing you?
I wonder

It reminds me of
How helpless we really are
Of how useless I really am
Cause I can't change this
On my own
And so we wait


You lie there
And we stare
Nothing I can do
Or I can say
Does time stand still?
All we can do is pray
All we can do is wait
And wonder.

It reminds me of
How helpless we really are
Of how useless I really am
Cause I can't fix this
On my own
And so we wait


I feel the pain of love
I feel the pain of love
And I haven't got time for the pain
Haven't got room for the pain

You awake
And my heartache
Disappears
When willl it reappear?
In the morning?
Another evening?
Some stormy afternoon?
It's never opportune

This reminds me of
Just how helpless we really are
Of just how fragile life really is
Tonight I'll lie a wake in bed
And so we wait

NUMBER ONE FAN

I want you I crave you
I need you I love you
What am I gonna do with this love in my heart?
How can you look in my eyes
And say you don't love me?
What am I gonna do with this love in my heart?

This love inside of my heart
It's just waiting here for you
This love inside of my heart
It's only for you


I've seen you in movies
I've seen you on TV
What am I gonna do with this love in my heart?
When you're staring at the camera
I know you're staring at me
What am I gonna do with this love in my heart?

This love inside of my heart
It's just waiting here for you
This love inside of my heart
It's only for you

I don't think I can last much longer
Deep inside me this feelings growing so much stronger
So when I see you now
The feelings change somehow
I want to wrap my hands around your neck


Lying awake
But it feels like I'm dreaming
What am I gonna do with this love in my heart?
Your image haunts me
Til I feel like screaming
What am I gonna do with this love in my heart?

This love inside of my heart
It's just waiting here for you
This love inside of my heart
It's only for you

I don't think I can last much longer
Deep inside me this feelings growing so much stronger
So when I see you now
The feelings change somehow
I want to stick a gun inside your mouth

MERRY-GO-ROUND

All the things that you do and you say in your life
Well they draw me to you
And every day when you go on your way or at night
You take my heart with you

You don't know what you're doing to me
You don't know what you're doing to me

You spin me round and round like a merry-go-round
You don't know what you're doing to me
You spin me round and round like a merry-go-round
You don't know what you're doing to me


Of all of the girls that I've watched in this world before
You are the one for me

Of all the gin joints in all the towns in the world,
Was this our destiny?
You don't know what you're doing to me
Not a clue of what you're doing to me

You spin me round and round like a merry-go-round
You don't know what you're doing to me
You spin me round and round like a merry-go-round
You don't know what you're doing to me


You spin me round and round like a merry-go-round
You don't know what you do to me
You spin me round and round like a merry-go-round
You don't know what you're doing to me


You spin me
You turn me
You move me
You burn me

FOREVER

Even if you want me back
You can't have me
You broke my heart into pieces
And that's not right
So if you're listening
You're not forgiven
And forever is a long, long time
I said forever is a long, long time

Take my heart
Make it real
You know me.
I'm not asking you to change your mind.
Well I am
And I've got no right to ask you
Forever is a long, long time
Forever's such a long, long time.


You're saying that you want me back
But it's still too early
I remember all the pain
Every day and night
So if you're listening
You're still not forgiven
And forever is a long, long time
I said forever is a long, long time

Take my heart
Make it real
You know me.
I'm not asking you to change your mind.
Well I am
And I've got no right to ask you
Forever is a long, long time
Forever's such a long, long time.


Love may come and love may go
I'll be waiting here ya know

BRIEF AFFAIR

Thought it was good
Right from the start
Our love was true
And we'd never part
Something came along
We couldn't foresee
Oh baby how can you do this to me?

Now that it's over before it's begun
Now that i need you our love is done
Now that it's over what could I say?
And would it make a difference anyway?


You weren't my first
You won't be my last
But I wasn't quite ready
To make you my past
Say you're not sure
That my be true
But life's too short
To wait around for you

Now that it's over before it's begun
Now that i need you our love is done
Now that it's over what could I say?
And would it make a difference anyway?


Short and sweet but incomplete
Our brief affair

Now that our love
Is over and done
Every time I see you
I think of the fun
Anytime, anyplace or anywhere
I'd love to relive
Our brief affair

Now that it's over before it's begun
Now that i need you our love is done
Now that it's over what could I say?
And would it make a difference anyway?

GLADNESS. SADNESS. MADNESS.

My love I watch you wake in the morning
Sometimes it hits me hard without warning
Your eyes
Your lips
Your face it makes me quiver in my heart
The heart you launch a thousand ships in when you smile.

And love I know sometimes you might hurt me
But I know your love will never desert me
In life you're me hope
Together through the changes we must cope
And help each other to become the best we can

Through gladness our love
Through sadness our love
Through madness goes our love


The world drives us crazy
We can laugh or we can cry
At least I know I'll have you
To hold on to 'til I die

Gladness. Sadness. Madness. And love.

UPSIDE DOWN

Once I lied awake in bed all night
Cause I knew something wasn't right
Felt that something changed inside of me
Knew that something need to be free

Gotta be the man I claim to be
Only see the things I ought to see
Then I'll be the best for you and me
And I'll claim a moral victory

When I walk down the hall
See shattered pictures upon the wall

Gonna turn my whole world upside down
Used to call me lost
But baby now I'm found


Wanna have the grace of Gunga Din
And I'll have the strength of Qui-Gon Jinn
Then i'll be as brave as Rin Tin Tin
So open up the door and let me in

When I walk down the hall
See shattered pictures upon the wall

Gonna turn my whole world upside down
Used to call me lost
But baby now I'm found


My ballroom days are over

SLIPPIN' AWAY

Took a brief trip to the place where I lived
The world that I knew in my childhood
As I walk down the street it all feels bittersweet
Would I go back if I could?

I visit a store to revisit the lore
Of my youth from an older perspective
The place is the same only faces have changed
And entropy has been effective

I drift and I glide and I slip back and time
Suddenly feel disconnected
I know that was then I can't go back again
But right now it's too hard to accept it
I feel it slippin' away


There's a girl I once knew and my love only grew
Or it seemed every time that I saw her
For her it wasn't the same it was only a game
And I lost a big part of my heart there

Now she calls out my name and I don't feel the pain
That I felt when she left me there blinded
And I look at my wife and I know that love's right
But there's times I could sure be reminded

I drift and I glide and I slip back and time
Suddenly feel disconnected
I know that was then I can't go back again
But right now it's too hard to accept it
I feel it slippin' away


I visit with friends and the fun never ends
As we joke and we drink to the old days
And the role I played then seems to come back again
I fall so easily into my old ways

But the stories we tell seem to grow and to swell
Until no one remembers the real one
And as we reminisce about that and of this
Everything seems like it was such fun

I drift and I glide and I slip back and time
Suddenly feel disconnected
I know that was then I can't go back again
But right now it's too hard to accept it
I feel it slippin' away
