I wanna see how lucky lucky can be, yeah

Ride with me

I saw you through my blind intoxication
My shock induced insane self-medication
You looked at me and smiled
Said get ready to get wild.
sugar you just need a brief vacation

(chorus)
I wanna see how lucky lucky can be
I wanna ride with my angel and live shockingly
I wanna drive to the edge and into the sea
I wanna see how lucky lucky can be

I was dried up I was starving I was mangled
I looked like hell, twisted up and tangled
You whispered in my ear
The ghosts are gone it's clear
For too long you've been tied up you've been strangled

(chorus)

I don't wanna ride on a shotgun side
Don't wanna be a quaint observer on this supersonic ride
Double down, split the aces, to the races
I feel lucky tonight

(chorus)

I wanna see just how lucky lucky can be
Ride with my angel how I love being free
Drive to the edge and into the sea
I wanna see how lucky lucky can be

Ride, ride with me, yeah.

I wanna see how lucky
Lucky can be

I… I am watching you sleep
It's the promise you've made
One I find I can keep
Oh I…want to swallow the moon
Give a smile back to you
Light your way
Tell the Angels they'll just have to wait

(chorus)
‘Cause I wanna stay here in this moment
Can I quietly slip into you
You and I can stay here in this moment
Let the world fade away,
I just want to stay with you

I…I am watching you breathe
I am pulled into you
As you smash into me
Oh I want to give you the stars
All that I can hold in my arms
Placing them where you lay
Tell the Angles they'll just have to wait

Chorus

With my hand on your skin we can slowly begin, I am free
Now the heavens have less cause I've found the best and I won't let them take
you away
Tell the angels they'll just have to wait…

(chorus)

I wanna stay here in this moment
Make the earth stand impossibly still
Disappear in your kiss, we'll never be missed
Let the world fade way, I just want to stay with you


. . .



Hello
Yes that's what I said
Guess I thought that I was dead
So I just called you from my bed
To say hello

See I've got this funny notion
life is only just an ocean
I've been drowning in emotion
Now I'm swimming back to shore
And I'd like to talk to you

(Chorus)
If you want to
You can call I'll be around
If you want to
You can write this number down
If you want to
If you want to
Leave a message at the tone
If you want to
You can call me here at home
If you want to
I'll be alone

So now I've called
So it's been a couple days, ok seven this I know that I've been moving kinda
slow
So I called
Oh it must be so appaling if you think that I've been stalling
This is me now I am calling
And I'm better than before
And I'd like to talk to you

Don't you wanna know, don't you wanna be
Someone who takes a chance on a fool like me
Staring at the door, starin' down the hall
Waiting my whole life just for you to call

Hello
Yes that's what I said
I'm not breathing I'm not dead
Waiting here now in my bed
And I'd like to talk to you

If you want to
You can call I'll be around
If you want to
You can write this number down
If you want to
If you want to
Let your fingers do the walk
If you want to
I've got hours I can talk
If you want to
If you want to
Leave a message at the tone
If you want to
You can call me here at home
If you want to


. . .



I played the fool today
I just dream of vanishing into the crowd
Longing for home again
Home, is a feeling I buried in you

I'm alright, I'm alright
It only hurts when I breathe

And I can't ask for things to be still again
No I can't ask if I could walk through the world in your eyes
Longing for home again
Home, is a feeling I buried in you

I'm alright, I'm alright
It only hurts when I breathe
I'm alright, I'm alright
It only hurts when I breathe

My window through which nothing hides
And everything sees
I'm counting the signs and cursing the miles in between

Home

Home, is a feeling I buried in you, that I buried in you

I'm alright, I'm alright
It only hurts when I breathe
I'm alright, I'm alright
It only hurts when I breathe, when I breathe
Yeah, it only hurts when I breathe, when I breathe

. . .



Well I have lived ten years plus ten
And ten and ten again
I have seen too much to pretend
And then you wanted to come in
I have survived all of the lies
They made me wise
The locks and walls and the peace it buys
Still when I look into your eyes
It's a surprise when you say

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
let it all go away

What do you want from me
Mercy, mercy baby
What do you want from me

well I plead Mercy, mercy baby
I do not know what this all means
It's been awhile
Since I've been stylin' in
Just my jacket and my jeans

It hurts to walk
It hurts to talk
It hurts to think about it
Shout about it
Could I be sure without a doubt
That you could never live without

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
let it all go away
Mercy baby
What do you want from me
Mercy, mercy, mercy baby
What do you want from me

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
let it all go away
I want to fall in you
Crawl in you
Surrender
All in you now

Could I be sure in you
Pure in you
Finding the cure in you
Now I plead
Have mercy on me

Now I am kneeling at the altar
In the temple of your eyes
And I am asking for a miracle
I have been too long paralyzed when you say

Get up
Stand up
Climb the rope of hope
and open up again

All the peace you say is promised me
seems too much to comprehend

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Just hold on tight
let it all go away
Mercy baby
What do you want from me
Mercy, mercy baby
what Can this girl believe

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be okay
Honey just hold on tight
And I'll make it all go away
Hold on

It's gonna be alright
Mercy darling
Mercy

Smooth as cream She's every young boy's dream
She's like a hot rollercoaster on a video screen

She's off the hook
Take a look
Let your imagination cook
She don't play by the rules
She don't go by the book

All the boys wanna know
If she's got something to hide
All the girls are relieved
She's working for the other side
She's a sinner
A saint
She'll run it cool and hot
She's a secret agent
You can believe it or not

Killer eyes
that homicidal sight

You can't resist it
To be twisted in her suicidal thighs
Confessional lips
Professional fingertips
It's a deception to perfection
Her exceptional hips

All the boys wanna know
If she's got something to hide
All the girls are relieved
She's working for the other side
She's a sinner
A saint
She'll run it cool and hot
She's a secret agent
You can believe it or not

Her disguise is specialized
And her code is confidential
It's her modus operandi
She's a threat
Makes you sweat
As she drags her cigarette
Man, what you see
Ain't always what you get

She'll make a grown man cry
She'll make a woman try
She'll make you wanna believe
And she will leave you high and dry
You got nowhere to run
got her phasers on stun
With her toys like the boys
She is second to none

Everybody wants to know
If she's got something to hide
All the girls are relieved
She's working for the other side
She's a sinner
A saint
She'll run it cool and hot
She's a secret agent

. . .



The sky is too high to paint tonight
The wind is too strong to hold on to
I climb on your roof and call out your name
Somebody stole my silver shoes

Now the show must go on, and on and on and on

(chorus)
Will you still love me anyway
Will you still need me when you're victorious
Will you still want me when I've nothing to say
Will you still love me anyway

I am in the big top on the live wire
Under the gun, over the fire
I'd swim up so high, like a swan I would dive
Someone took my net, and buried me alive

And the crowd screams for more – Encore, Encore

(chorus)

Oh I, I need to know why
Doesn't love die
What becomes of life
When does it begin
And tell me how's it end
When your carved into my carved into my carved into my skin

Will you still love me anyway


. . .



Keep your eyes down, keep your head lowered
Keep to your self dear, do not tell a soul
You know it's wrong what they've been sayin'
And you knew all along that I would have to go

Find the place where light shines on my reflection
A place where I can stand upon my own
Not down on my knees
Until then please

(chorus)
Meet me in the dark
Meet me in the shadows
Past the old graveyard
On Eisenhower road
Meet me where the storms
Blow out on their own dear
Meet me in the dark
Never let me go

I know everyone has their unspoken fear
That eats away their senses and their humanity
They carry all their secrets every night down to the river
And they try so hard to drown them
They wont do that to me

Cause I'm working hard saving all my money
And the tips in this jar will by a brand new set of wings
For my mercury
Until then please

(chorus)

I could never hide this little light of mine
If God made a mistake then I should die before I wake
Maybe it's my fate to swim against this tide
Swallowing my pride

Keep your eyes down; say that you don't know me
For I could not survive if they took you away


. . .



10:03 on a Tuesday morning
in the fall of an American dream
a man is doing what he knows is right
on flight 93

Loved his mom and he loved his dad
loved his home and he loved his man
but on that bloody Tuesday morning
he died and American

(chorus)
Now you cannot change this
You can't erase this
You can't pretend this is not the truth

Even though he could not marry
Or teach your children in our schools
Because who he wants to love
Is breaking your God's rules

He stood up on a Tuesday Morning
In the terror he was brave
And he made his choice and without a doubt
A hundred lives he must have saved

(chorus)

And the things you might take for granted
Your inalienable rights
Some might choose to deny him
Even though he gave his life

Can you live with yourself in the land of the free
And make him less of a hero than the other three
Well it might begin to change ya
In a field in Pennsylvania

(chorus)

Stand up America
Hear the bell now as it tolls
Wake up America
It's Tuesday Morning
Let's roll


. . .



You tried to hold us down
You tried to hold us back
You tried to make us wrong
You tried to make us crack

You wanted to see us cry
You wanted to see us leave
You didn't count on the tide
You didn't count on the pride
You didn't count on me

I am a giant
And you will not make me fall
And you will not make me crawl
I am a giant
And I'm not alone
Winds of change have blown
And walls come tumbling down

And I learned from my mistakes
Pick myself up of the floor
I have learned just what it takes
Now I am stronger than before
And we are standing side by side
We are determined now to win
We come too far
And we've got the scares
And we are never going back into the shadows again

I am a giant
And you will not make me fall
And you will not make me crawl
I am a giant
And I'm not alone
Winds of change have blown

. . .



well you got some tips and you learned some licks
you wanna try and teach this old dog some new tricks, huh?
well you told your friends you'd have a little bit of fun
you wanna walk on up now one, huh?
you asked me if I'd like to dine - do you have enough courage
have you had enough wine, sunshine?

keep your head up
don't you sweat in the spotlight
you're coming out tonight
yeah, you're coming out tonight

take a good hard look at this big star view
don't be bitin' off more than you're ever gonna chew, yeah
you can break the rules when you play in the dark
but every wild fire comes from a little bitty spark, yeah
does your mama know who you're hangin' around
a souped up punk in a rock and roll gown, uh, small town

keep your head up
don't you sweat in the spotlight
you're coming out tonight

come on out tonight
come on out tonight
come on out tonight
come on out tonight

(are you ready for your big premiere
people will think your acting sort of queer)
Hey, well come over here

Tell your friends that you won't be home
you got a tiger by the tail and a tiger on the phone, yeah
You're lookin' sharp you got the right location
everybody's ready for the next sensation, your reputation

keep your head up
don't you sweat in the spotlight
keep your head up
don't you sweat in the spotlight
keep your head up
don't you sweat in the spotlight
you're coming out tonight

come on out tonight
come on out tonight
come on out tonight

. . .



Baby what you doin' tonight?
I'll go anywhere that you want to go
jump into my car go down to that bar
pretend I'm someone that you don't know

I'll ask you if you would like to dance
Slip myself up close to your thighs
You can buy me a drink, we'll make everyone think
That love is so damned perfect tonight

Oh kiss me, kiss me, kiss everything away
oh honey now kiss me, kiss me, kiss me.
come out and play

A woman can go crazy I know, working all day in and day out
come on, we'll let off some steam, create a scene
Nothing like a good scream and shout

Oh kiss me, kiss me, kiss everything away
oh honey now kiss me, kiss me,
kiss me - come out and play

Your kiss is like medicine - a prescription to exstacy
and your mind is my playground - look at what I've found
lying next to me

aahhh

Baby what you doin' tonight? I'll be anyone you want me to be
just a girl in a bar, your personal super star
I just want ya, I want ya, I want ya, I want you to

kiss me, kiss me, kiss everything away
oh honey now kiss me, kiss me, kiss me.
come out and play

kiss me, kiss me, kiss me.
come out and play
come out and play

. . .



Well I was a slick midwestern gal
On a long hard road into southern cal
Didn't find any crime fillin' up all my time
I had the devil in my bones and an angel on my mind

and I drank up all the movies and I searched for happy endings
I turned love inside out till I was perfectly pretending
still I believed it could be true

that when you find the one
There's no question in the silence
All is said and done when you find the one
when you find the one

Yeah you could say that I was crazy I was that kinda girl
I had to open up a lot of oysters before I found myself a pearl
I had to kiss a lot of frogs to find my grass was green enough
had to be face down in the gutter to see what is and isn't love

Then I woke from all the dreaming to your taste and to your laughter
I cried till I was dry and now live my ever after
I believe I always knew

When you find the one
There's no question in the silence
All is said and done when you find the one
When you find the one

And when you make the choice to believe in your existence
with hello you will know when you find the one

I believe it could be true
yes I believe I always knew
and I believe it could be true
and believe i always knew

when you find the one
There's no question in the silence
All is said and done when you find the one

And when you make the choice to believe in your existence
with hello you will know when you find the one
