We’ve been on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for number one
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101
California here we come
Right back where we started from
California (California...) Here we come
On the stereo
Listen as we go
Nothings gonna stop me now
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Pedal to the floor
Thinking of the roar
Gotta get us to the show
California here we come
Right back where we started from
California (California...)Here we come
(repeat to end)

Everybody in this place get up and move away
For all I care this towns already dead and empty
Im told that Im the victim of obsession thats what my friends say
Oh Im a fool for having ever let her tempt me

-Chorus-
Well I turn pale when she walks by
I am lost in her eyes
She is always on my mind x2

She glances over but she keeps on walking down that street
all i can do is hope that she is thinking of me
if i could blink if i could breathe if i could get my legs to move
Well this could be the day I get this girl to love me

-Chorus-

She had turned from a sound
well i must have cried out loud
she is always on my mindx2

If i could blink if i could breathe
if i could get my legs to move
well this could be the day i get this girl to love me

-Chorus-

She had turned from a sound
well i must have cried out loud
She is always on my mind x4

I could tell, from the minute I woke up
it was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
Rise and shine, rub the sleep out of my eyes
and try to tell myself I can't go back to bed
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Even though the sun is shining down on me
and I should feel about as happy as can be
I just got here, and I already want to leave
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Everybody knows that somethin's wrong
but nobody knows what's goin' on
We all sing that same old song
When you want it all to go away
It's shapin' up to be a lonely day

I could tell, from the minute I woke up
It was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Everybody knows that somethin's wrong
but nobody knows what's goin' on
We all sing that same old song
When you want it all to go away
It's shapin' up to be a lonely day

I could tell, from the minute I woke up
it was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day
It was gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely
lonely lonely lonely lonely....

Everybody knows that somethin's wrong
but nobody knows what's goin' on
Everybody knows that somethin's wrong
but nobody knows what's goin' on

(Oh oh oh oooh...why can't we see...)

. . .


Goodness, sometimes things get bad,
But I swear I'm doing all I can,
So try all you want to,
I'm gonna try too,
If I had one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand,
Maybe we can be happy again,
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand,
Maybe we can be happy and then...
Things don't go as I planned,
But I swear I'm doing all I can,
So try all you want to,
I'm gonna try too,
If I had one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand,
Maybe we can be happy again,
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand,
And I guess if this isn't the end,
Maybe we can be happy again...

I woke up today
A song was swimming in my head
And I hummed it to myself
As I got out of bed
And on the way to take a shower
It all just dawned on me
That a song like this just might go down in history
I quickly ran back to get my guitar, a pen and some paper

-chorus-
Cause this whole world
Needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong
Yeah, this whole world
Needs an anthem
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along

Well I quickly got to work
And put the song in gear
And my neighbor rang the doorbell
Said it caught his ear
I was playing it so loud
The whole neighborhood could hear
And at night from every household
It became quite clear

Everyone just singing along
The same notes the same song
Maybe I heard it wrong

-chorus-

Everyone was singin along
The same notes
The same song
Maybe i heard that wrong

-chorus until fade-

. . .


Oh yeah it started today in a cloud
if I was the sun I would shout
I've got so much shining left before I'm out
It began with a spark then a flame
grew into a fire and spread out again
And I just woke up there surrounded by the whole thing
And we have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
We may not make it
I can't see a thing through the smoke
and if I can breathe I try not to choke
No where to run no where to hide no where to go
Sometimes I get stuck yeah I get so upset
I'll burn at the ends and lose all regret
Just one toss of that fateful cigarette
We have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
I think the end is near I can feel it
We have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
When we may not make it
In our darkest hour
i think the end is near
i keep feelin we have gotta get outta here
in our darkest hour
we may not make it
in our darkest hour

Here they come the business men
Like a herd of cattle rumbling in
The exchange has officially begun
Now all the offices are buzzing
The executives are busy bee's
The watch it keeps turning in the employee's

And they just turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat

There's a crowd for men on Wall Street
Near the tallest building on the block
The suit has lost his fortune to the stocks
There was no time to see his fatal flaw
The madness set in with the loss
Now he cuts their throats to watch their heads fall off

And they just turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat

And decimal points and dollar signs and taxes, penalties, and fines
He's come to cut you down
Ohhh, and numbers, passwords, protocal
It's not enough to save your soul
He's come to cut you down
Bring you right back to zero

And they just turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat
Turn, smile, shift, repeat

And decimal points and dollar signs and taxes, penalties, and fines
He's come to cut you down
Ohhh, and numbers, passwords, protocal
It's not enough to save your soul
He's come to cut you down
Bring you right back to zero

. . .


Well let me tell you I have seen a monster age of seventeen
Who'll let you in to kick you out and knows what love is "all about"

Hey now girl I see you walking by
And long ago you used to stop and talk now you just wink your eye
and I'm surprised you look all grown up
A champagne glass next to a paper cup
I stopped you just to say it
Hey now girl

Her tongue is black haven't you heard her mutter those three dirty words
For all those foolish boys to hear like a siren bringing ships so near

Hey now girl I see you walking by
And I remember how you used to smile or how hard you used to try
It's in your eyes and I'm in a trance
A winter chill next to a spring romance
I stopped you just to say it
Hey now girl

. . .


Everything is okay, everything is fine
I give you everything you ask for don't be so unkind
Every time you're mad 'bout every little thing
It's too soon to pull out or pull out that wedding ring.

I'm so ready I'm not ready
This little boy is running right back home
I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own

Never had the patience, never had the time
Never knew that working hard was such a crime
I thought I could make it happy down the line
But I guess it's been over since you've heard this heart of mine

On you mark, get set go
This little boy is running right back home
I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own

I thought I could make it happy down the line
But I guess it's been over since you've heard this heart of mine
On your mark get set go
This little boy is running right back home
I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own

But my own
But my own, but my own
But my own

. . .


Your crash is waiting to happen,
And you you're dragging me down,
All over again,
I give in,
I give up,
You splashed but you started sinking,
And you you're dragging me down,
All over again,
I give up,
I give in,
I give up,
You are crowding me in,
I wanna get out,
This is the end, all over again,
You're crowding me in,
I just wanna get out,
This is the end, all over again...

. . .


It cursed us all on our way home
We passed the sights like passing stones
And I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The prostitutes this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
He is the shrieks I am the fear
That yelling man rings in my ears
Out of his mind he's my conscience
Hour after hour pill after pill
He is my bellyache I've taken so much medicine to kill
I know there's something wrong
'Cause this night just drags on and on
The clock still says it won't be long
'Til all your hard earned money's gone
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The prostitutes this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well

. . .


Burn me down if that's how everything's gonna start
With the flames from the heat off the look on your face
On a day like today could have made out every
Raindrop falling down on you head

Now I fear that I may taste these tears rolling down my face
And realize something is wrong
With the light of the sun and the color of the sky
With you and everyone
