Friday night,
I pull into the station.
The same routine,
the same old situation.
Pushing through the crowd
and then i hear a song.
I wonder if the good
old days are really gone.

We used to be crazier,
now we're so serious.
Was life really easier,
or what we just did here?

Am i too young? Am i too old?
Is there something wrong with the radio?
It does'nt rock,
it does'nt roll.
Is there something wrong with the radio?

We'd stay out all night
to see our favourite band.
Hanging out backstage
was like the holy land.

We used to be crazier,
now we're so serious.
Was life really easier,
or what we just did here?

(chorus)
Am i too young? Am i too old?
Is there something wrong with the radio?
It does'nt rock,
it does'nt roll.
Is there something wrong with the radio?

Am i too young? Am i too old?
Is there something wrong with the radio?
I just wanna rock
I wanna roll
Is there something wrong with the radio?

We'd turn up the radio,
and wake up the neighbours.
Was it so long ago?
It seems like it was only yesterday.

(chorus 2x)

. . .


Oh, next light bust a right.
It's not gonna be too hard.
If there's no parking on the street pull up on their front yard.
Don't bring no vodka, or whisky,
we've got everything you need.
Just bring a pair of your dancing shoes and get down to this beat.

Let's go down.
Wash that sugar down.
You gotta realize that there aint no party
like the party going on in my house.
Better believe that it's gonna be the biggest night of the year.
Because there aint no party
like the party going on in my house,
but it would be so much better if you were only here.
... Mmmm, oh, that's right. Mmmm,
prom night, Oscar night, got all that BS beat.

There's twenty girls for every single boy
and their crazy from this heat.
We'll take you up and down and everywhere in between.
Mom and Dad are out of town all week,
so you better get on your feet.

Let's go down. Wash that sugar down.
Because there aint no party like the party going on in my house.
Better believe that it's gonna be the biggest night of the year,
because there aint no party like the party going on in my house,
but it would be so much better if you were only here.
Mmmm. Oh I think it's gonna get hot tonight.

Brothers and sisters moving in together so,
so nice and tight.
Everything you ever wanted from this life is gonna happen right now.
Oooh, those girls tend to hide (?),
and the temperatures rise,
better reach for the sky and raise up the ceiling. ...

Because there aint no party like the party going on in my house.
Better believe that its gonna be the biggest night of the year.
Because there aint no party like the party going on in my house,
but it would be so much better if you were only here.
If only you were here

I just don't know what to do
I just don't work right without you
I get busted up,
need fixing up now baby

My senses stop making sense
No wait, that don't make no sense
I get thrown off by my own balance, baby

These city lights
only shine down for you
This place is just too big without you
I just don't know
what it is about you
I just know that
I'm no good without you

Girl you gotta know
Everytime you go
out the door that it's not alright
Girl you gotta know
Everytime you go
out the door that it's not alright
It feels like everything stops
Just an old broken watch,
when you're not around

My jokes ain't funny no more
They weren't that funny before
The joke is always on
the joker, baby
And I forget how to dress
No one around to impress
My dress is messy,
at best, now baby

These city lights
only shine down for you
This place is just too big without you
I just don't know
what it is about you
I just know that
I'm no good without you, girl

Girl you gotta know
Everytime you go
out the door that it's not alright
Girl you gotta know
Everytime you go
out the doorthat it's not alright
it feels like everything stops
Just an old broken watch,
when you're not around

. . .


Call me Kevin, Chris or Johnny, George,
whatever you choose
I'm in disguise telling lies
I got nothing to lose
You were looking out
for number one
Just having fun
You thought that
you could dump me
by the road when you were done
Just watch your back
You're leaving tracks
'cause you got mud on your shoes

'cause baby there is something you have missed
You've been playing a contortionist

And I'm coming after you
I'm coming after you

Hey for a second there,
you almost had me all figured out
You've read the book a hundred times
You don't know what it's about
I bet that you would love to know
how this will all end up
I'll let you know when I decide
that you have had enough
There's still a chapter missing
You'll just have to wait and find out

I bet you never thought when we first kissed
You'd be in bed with a contortionist

and I'm coming after you
I'm coming after you
It's true

The screws are starting to turn
The knots are coming untied
I'm coming out of my shell
I'm coming for you tonight
Don't bother locking the door
'cause I'm already inside
I'm closing in on you now
You can run, you can't hide
you can't hide

I'm coming after you
I'm coming after you
I've got you in my crosshairs now
hey now

. . .


Am I only dreaming
did the world slow down?
don't believe I've ever seen you around
When did you get here?
How long have you been here?

I'm bending over backwards,
for a better view
and there is nothing
that I wouldn't let you do
If you were near
If only you were near

Are you from out of town or outer space?
So glad to see you landed in this place
You're so gorgeous
It's killing me
And we know
that you know
that I know

won't you give me something
I'd give anything
And we know
that you know
that I know

I'm hanging on to every word you haven't said
And I'm already holding you inside my head
oh can't you see?
Just what you do to me?

A gift for breaking
every heart in here
But you already know that,
don't you dear?

You're so gorgeous
It's killing me
And we know
that you know
that I know

won't you give me something
I'd give anything
And we know
that you know
that I know

The hand that you are holding,
should be mine
The lips you are kissing,
should be mine, mine

You're so gorgeous
It's killing me
And we know
that you know
that I know
won't you give me something
I'd give anything
And we know
that you know
that I know

I get a feeling maybe something's wrong
Everyday that she hasn't called
It's getting difficult since Debbie's been gone
Yeah, Debbie is gone
Yeah

Clearly something went wrong
How long since you last seen her?
About a week, I thought we had fun
better go out seek her

Debbie's gone, where can she be?
it's such a mystery
Debbie's gone, Why can't she see?
that She's better off with me
Don't leave me hanging
'cause I've got to know right now
Debbie !

I came around to see if you were home
Your car was parked right next to Jerome's
It's getting harder now that Debbie is gone
Yeah, Debbie is gone
Yeah

Clearly something went wrong
How long since you last seen her?
About a year, I thought we had fun
better go out seek her

Debbie's gone, where can she be?
you know, it's such a mystery
Debbie's gone, Why can't she see?
that she's better off with me
Don't leave me hanging
'cause I gotta know right now
Debbie

A picture of the two of us
I don't remember when
the crazy me
and the devil by my side
well I just can't help
but crack a smile
Every now and then
And I'm just wondering
where you are tonight

Back when we knew everything
Too much for our own good
The world was ours
and all we had was time
We didn't make it all the way
We did the best we could
And I'm just wondering
where you are tonight

Oh, never knew where we were going
Storming every single moment of every day
Oh, never had any way of knowing
There'd be any chance
it could all just go away

God knows how, you drag out
The best and worst in me
I could never stop you
I never even tried
Maybe I've already been
the best I'll ever be
And I'm just wondering
where you are tonight

Oh, the wind just keeps on blowing
And I'm losing track of ships
that pass me by
Oh, are you doing any better?
Are you somewhere lost
inside the same big sky?

that picture of the both of us
It didn't quite turn out
We never really found
the perfect light
The final drops of summer
slipping through the magic hour
And I'm just wondering
where you are tonight

I'm just wondering
where you are tonight

are you somewhere out there

. . .


Little miss lost and found
She's driving all around this town
She won't go home
She won't go home

Listening to Biggie Smalls
And now she's screening all her calls
She won't go home
She won't go home

The situation wasn't part of the plan
She's positive they won't understand
She ain't gone crazy
Things just got out of hand
Running red light just as fast as she can

Baby, why you looking so broken hearted?
Baby, why you scared to finish what you started
Running so fast, don't know what you're after
Slow yourself down and you'll get there faster

Baby, don't you know that you're so much smarter?
Baby, you just gotta try a little harder
Girl, when you shine you're so much brighter
Than anything anywhere else in the whole wide world

Little miss lost and found
She's driving all around this town
She won't go home
She won't go home

It ain't so bad, she's only up to her knees
She won't pull over, won't hand over the keys
She ain't no Thelma, sure as hell ain't no Louise
Just trying to make it through the night in one piece

Baby, why you looking so broken hearted?
Baby, why you scared to finish what you started
Running so fast, don't know what you're after
Slow yourself down and you'll get there faster

Baby, don't you know that you're so much smarter?
Baby, you just gotta try a little harder
Girl, when you shine you're so much brighter
Than anything anywhere else in the whole wide world

We don't have to talk about it
So don't be afraid
It really doesn't matter just how long you've been lost
Girl, it's never too late to be found

Baby, why you looking so broken hearted?
Baby, why you scared to finish what you started
Running so fast, don't know what you're after
Slow yourself down and you'll get there faster

Baby, don't you know that you're so much smarter?
Baby, you just gotta try a little harder
Girl, when you shine you're so much brighter
Than anything anywhere else in the whole wide world

. . .


Here she comes
brighter than the california sun
I say girl are you alright?
you know I can't believe
the way you shine tonight
A northern treasure
measure for measure
and I do't know whether
she was heaven sent
but she pays the rent

Everyone she knows
is always telling her
that she could do better
but she don't really mind
'cause we have a good time
when we're together
maybe there is something
in the water
or blame it on the weather
but we're doing fine
just me and my northern girl

There I go
Mr rock and roll
living on the dole
running with the boys -
we'll raise some hell tonight
come on and make some noise !
when we're together
I'm under pressure
we're from different worlds -
me and my northern girl

Everyone she knows
is always telling her
that she could do better
but she don't really mind
'cause we have a good time
when we're together
maybe there is something
in the water
or blame it on the weather
but we're doing fine
just me and my northern girl

She's my northern girl
and we're doing fine

Yeah

Cool cops are gonna
be the death of you
when they get a hold of you -
so get down on the ground
cool cops are gonna throw
the book at you
when they get a look at you -
gonna haul you downtown

Cool cops hate what's on the radio
or any kind of TV show -
oh it's such brutality !
cool cops only want to be around
the million pound indie sound -
oh it's right hypocrisy !

Don't think when the cops
suspect that you
are getting in their way
that they will not think twice
before just simply putting you away

Cool cops - they're always coming
after you !

Cool cops are here
to rain on your parade
unless of course they get paid
(even cops - they gotta eat)
cool cops are always watching
every step (man they even hate johnny depp)
love the sun and packing heat

when you scratch their backs it's so
much easier to pretend
that Q is just a letter and the NME
is still your friend

Cool cops - they're always coming after you !

. . .


In the night time
I can feel it
I can tell it
I can sell it
in the night time
I can see it
I just wanna be it
so I can yell it

Has everybody in this town
gone crazy or what?

In the night time
I can hear it
I can feel it
I can tell it
in the night time
I can't hide it
I'm not gonna fight it
I just wanna ride it

Has everybody in this town
gone crazy or what?
