I just heard the world, is breaking down into bits again.
Tell me what am i to do?
And you just want me to stay, here.
So i'm just gonna stay, here.

Home, the last resort.
Build a castle with an iron door.
Lock the window, pull the shades, the hazed out sun won't help anyway.

If the world is crumbling down, I don't wanna be alone.
NO, locked up in this place.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

Fear, is holding me here.
The television got me seeing unclear.
Bravery, my neighbor, moved away.
Cause I don't need to be courageous today.
NO, locked up in this place.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

Nothing's gonna save me.
I'm hanging from the nearest tree.
Nothing's gonna save me.
I'm hanging from the nearest tree.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

I heard the world up, late night.
Holding my breath tight, trying to keep my head on right.
There's a chill in the air, nobody could care.
How you're caught up in the fight of your life.

World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night
World up, late night

Lovely, you're always lovely
A vision
You were the one
Now I am stuck inside a memory
You forgot about our destiny
You buried me
Didn't you?
Didn't you?

Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drowning deep inside your sound

You're always floating
A vapor
That I couldn't see
Here I am stuck inside a yesterday
Everything has given way
You fell from me
Didn't you?

Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drowning deep inside your sound
Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drown in love and memories

Maybe I am a crowded mind
I watch your eyes glaze over
Stared down at the floor
You were amazing to me
I was amazing to you
But here we go again

Didn't you
Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drowning deep inside your sound
Love me faster than the devil
Run me straight into the ground
Drowning deep inside your water
Drown in love and memories

It was a hot, hot day
The middle of May
Saw this lady just walking my way
She was the cutest thing I'd ever seen
She got some black, black hair
A little black dress with the shoe to pair
The little honey bunny she come up to me
And we walked and we talked
We don't have no time to stop that day
That day was a wonderful day
That day was the best damn day

Well, I've lost my mind
I have lost my mind a thousand times
And you would to
Friday was the day that I met you
o if you knew the lady that I knew
A mastermind of a terrible kind
But a beauty just the same
And we walk and we talk
We don't have no time to stop the day
That day was the best damn day

Monday woke up straight late for work
Sunday all night thinking about the girl
Saturday was high and I felt it too
I didn't know it could take so long
I didn't know that this could be
I didn't know it could take so long
I didn't know that this could be
For me

That day, that day, that day was
such a wonderful day wonderful day
such a wonderful day wonderful day

Crossing this country, I'm stalling
I'm coming down
Over my head, I'm falling
Will I be found?
I've had to be a million places at one
That's not me

I'm a stranger on the outside when
I'm not right next to you
I remember how to get there
Will you be there when I'm coming through?

Crossing this room to my lovely, my saving grace
Promise that time hasn't lost me
And don't turn away
I've had to be a million faces at one
That's not me
That's not me

I'm a stranger on the outside when I'm not right next to you
I remember how to get there
Take me back into your arms where I belong
There I'm no stranger to you

The mirror has broken
What do you see?
A million of you and a million of me
The future's unspoken
Who do you see?
The one on the outside
That's not me

I'm a stranger on the outside when I'm not right next to you
I remember how to get there
Will you be there when I'm coming through?
I'm a stranger on the outside when I'm not right next to you
I'm a stranger on the outside when I'm not right next to you
I'm a lonely man walking, searching for my home
Been a thousand years and her I am I'm all alone
I'm out looking for my lovely one to save the day
Here I come, I'm no stranger today


. . .



There was time now it's far away
I didn't know you, but I knew your name
We would talk, I got nothing to say
But hear me now
You're like an angel that is just for me
Bless your heart, let your mind go free
And it's too loud on the Earth today
So let's go home and lay down

Lay down and rest here in my arms
Lay down the universe is ours

Catch a teardrop, bleed the heart
Masquerade in a world apart
From a mass that got more to lose I'm making a run
So blessed angel that is just for me
Catch the dream, there's a lot to see
But it's too loud on the Earth today
So let's go home and lay it down

Lay down and rest here in my arms

I never seen a body move the way you do
Rocking steady and you know it too
You had to come down from Heaven above and tease the world
So listen good, cause I'm telling it straight
I don't got no more time to waste
I got a trip planned past the Sun
Taking you home

To lay down and rest here in my arms
Lay down the universe is ours

I bought a planet for you
I planned it for you, my dear
There's no one above you
I purchased a room with a view
And we can fly away to outer space
We'll be alone just us two
And you know it's all for you
All for you
All for you

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

This one time I flip, call the radio
Man play the record that I been loving so
I sing with the singer
Dance to the flow
I hear my request coming out the stereo
At one time there was a rhythm on my stereo
Pick up the phone line
Send my jam down the radio

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

So call up, call up I wanna hear the performance
Catch a wave on the air today
Call up, call up bring a rhythm and a chorus
I want to hear it on the air today

One time on the stereo
A rhythm I could groove to

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

So call up, call up I wanna hear the performance
Catch a wave on the air today
Call up, call up bring a rhythm and a chorus
I want to hear it on the air today

It takes me home
Take me home
I listen to the music, the music will take me home

Shake the floor, move the room with the bass line
Pay my respect to drummy as he keep time
Crank the volume now the song is all mine
Come sound system make the rhythm climb

Program director on the radio won't play my record until the caller tell him so
Program director on the radio won't play no music until the caller tell him so

Caught a train in a dash
Running hard from my past
Set to ride this here rail till the end
Along the way met a queen
Now, I'm her king
And we reign our kingdom from a mountaintop
Where, baby, we can be alone

Almond eyes, royal skin
This one could do me in
An I'll live this here life till the end
We will win, we will win, we're gonna win this here race
Baby, we can be alone
My baby, we can be alone

Some day I'll give it all back
The time you gave
Now, baby, we can be alone

It's a tragedy in waiting
And there's something on my mind
It's hard enough for me to carry on

Well it's a tragedy in waiting
And there's something on my mind
It's hard enough for me to carry on

Well call me pleasure if you like
But believe me when I say
I will learn to change it all

It's not like I'm asking for the sky to open up
I don't believe that's possible just yet

Well it's a tragedy in waiting
And there's something on my mind
It's hard enough for me to carry on

Have you ever left your suitcase
Open long after you land
To love them close
A destiny may wait and there's present in hand
But they forgot to tell me how to end this show

Could it be that I'm the one
Who holds my hand behind my back
Well I know that this is possible by now
But destiny may take me so far from where I am
But it's hard enough for me to hold it down

You want me so badly to give right into you
But I'm afraid that cannot be the case today
You dream of land and marriage, just me and you
Oh my mind won't you leave me be
Won't you just leave me for me

Love is the only way out of this
It's the only way i can get back into it

Be an afternoon or more
Beyond the breaking of the day
There is always something waiting there for me
I've asked again and then again
Just to glimpse into my day
But someone's trying to make it hard on me

Could it be that I'm the one
Who tied my hand behind my back
Well I know that this is possible right now

It's a tragedy in waiting
When there's something plagueing the mind
And it's hard enough for love to hold me down

Well, I don't believe it
Well, I can't believe it
Well, I don't believe it
I'll never believe it
No, so I'm gone

You want me so badly to give right into you
Well I'm afraid that cannot be the case today
So you dream of land and marriage, just me and you
Oh my mind won't you just leave me be
Won't you just leave me for me
For me , for me , for me

I'm looking for a stray dog to follow me home
I'm stepping off the A train ready to roam
Smoking underneath a cold rain before moving on
I'm looking for a stray dog to follow me home
Follow me home

Hoping for daylight to follow me
If you're lost in the dark get to where you can see
There is somewhere we're supposed to be
And you know
In a matter of time you set yourself free

I'm pulling out my pockets
Got a dollar or two
Changing my path home a dog on the loose
So where do I go?
When they know all about you
Here's your chance to kiss them all goodbye

Hoping for daylight to follow me
If your lost in the dark get to where you can see
And you know
In a matter of time you set yourself free

There is something you need to know
Charge the wall
Tear down the hull
Make a point to have a point of view
It doesn't matter what you say
And no, I can't come out to play
Because I've got something else to do

Hoping for daylight to follow me
If your lost in the dark get to where you can see
There is somewhere we're supposed to be
And you know
In a matter of time you set yourself free


. . .



God, give me one shot and I'll break right through
I am starting to be brand new

Rome is burning you can taste the embers
I am walking hard on Spanish Stairs
My Saint was silence rapping on the door
Grown up defiant wanting so much more

Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say I say

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't want to be a stranger

Walk with millions, a delicate few
So sad how loneliness just follows you
New York City streets and avenues

Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say
(Starting over)
Me brand new, say I say

Give me one shot at my life today
One shot at my life today
I don't want to be a stranger

I don't want to be just a passerby
Stand in line wrapped around the world
I don't want to be just a parasite
Holding on tight
Holding on tight

I got this feeling and it's down in my bones
I got this feeling and it's burning up my soul
I got to get just one shot, baby one more day
Got to give me one shot today
I got this feeling just give me one day


. . .



I had a dream about you
It was December in the afternoon
You're something pretty and cool
Signing records as you're passing through

You saw everyone as an angel
But what about the thieves?
Who don't know what do
And don't know who to be
You saw everyone as an angel
But what about the thief?
Who took away from you
He took away from you

If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way

Behind the archway lies a thief
Awaiting double fantasy
He's something evil underneath

I think everyone has a devil waiting in the wings
When you don't know what to do
And you don't know who to be
You saw everyone as an angel
But what about the thief?
Who took away from you
Took away from you

If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way

Maybe this is just a nightmare
And I will wake up
We all will wake up
Maybe this is just a nightmare
December afternoon they took away from you

If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on your way
If you just kept walking on, walking on, walking on your way
Just walking on your way
Just walk on

Listen here, this will only be
A small portion of your lifetime
That you'll sacrifice for me
I asked and you were born
And like the wind you snuck up on me
Got me begging for your storm

Fifty-two fifty more days until I come back from war
I'm gonna lock you up and love you down
I can't take this anymore
Nights are old, but I am young
Across the sea writing letters home
Answer me, let me hear your voice
I can't take it anymore

And I don't know were you've gone
There's so much more you need to know

Take it slow now
Smooth running
Live the day cool
Show me strength
True loving
And trust me girl
True loving

Listen here, this will only be
A small portion of your lifetime
That you'll sacrifice for me
I asked and your were born
Like the snow you fall upon me
Got me begging for some more

Fifty-two fifty more days until I come back from war
I'm gonna love you up
And love you down
I'd cross the world just to
Hear your sound

Reign on love
Reign on love
Reign on love
Rain!
