Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Why do you smile like you've been told a secret?
Now you're telling lies 'cause you have sworn to keep it
But no one keeps a secret
No one keeps a secret

Why when do our darkest deeds do we tell?
They burn in our brains, become a living hell
Because everybody tells
Everybody tells

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Look into my eyes, now you're getting sleepy
Are you hypnotized by secrets that you're keeping?
I know what you're keeping
I know what you're keeping

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Allison?
Yes, Catherine?
I have something I want to tell you but you have to promise never to tell anyone.
I promise.
Do you swear on your life?
I swear on my life.

You swore you'd never tell
You swore you'd never tell
You swore you'd never tell
You swore you'd never tell

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead
(X3)

Yes, two can keep a secret if one of them is dead
Yes, two can keep a secret if one of us is dead

Saturday Night
We look alright
We're going out
Boring.
Paris, France
Londontown
NYC
Boring.

Nothing thrills us
Anymore
No one kills us
Anymore
Life is such a chore
When it's….
Boring

Sexy boy
Girl on girl
Ménage à trois
Boring.
Marijuana
Cocaine
Heroin
Boring.

Nothing thrills us
Anymore
No one kills us
Anymore
Life is such a chore
When it's….
Boring

Galliano
Donatella
Dolce & Gabbana
Boring.
Caviar
Escargot
Dom Perignon
Boring.

Love of my life
Bear your child
Everything I've ever wanted
Boring.

Nothing thrills us
Anymore
No one kills us
Anymore
Life is such a chore
When it's….
Boring
(when it's boring)

Nothing thrills us
Anymore
No one kills us
Anymore
Life is such a chore
When it's….
Boring

Hey domino,
I am stopping you from falling
1-2-3 Don't you dare go down
Hey waterfall,
Oh can you hear me calling?
3-2-1 don't you dare touch the ground

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

Well, sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood
Well I could tell you a witch's spell
But it just might blow your top
Then you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop
Its awfully hard to stop

Sun in the sky,
I am stopping you from burning
All we need is stars and moon
Clock on the wall,
I will keep your hands from turning
Or this night will end too soon

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

Well, sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood
And I could tell you a witch's spell
But it just might blow your top
Then you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop
Its awfully hard to stop
It's just too hard to stop

Ooooh
Hey lover boy,
Oh, now do you believe me?
That's not all that I can do
Sit back down,
I'm afraid we won't be leaving
Cant undo my spell on you

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

Well sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood
And I could tell you a witch's spell
But you just might blow your top
Then you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop

Well sticks and stones will break your bones
And leave you lying in the mud
But you get scared when we're alone
Like I might suck your blood
And I could tell you a witch's spell
But you just might blow your top
Then you start to run just as I'm having fun
And it's awfully hard to stop
Its awfully hard to stop
It's just too hard to stop
I don't think I can stop

. . .


Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Some people say that I want you for your money
but I really want for your body
(Yes, oh, yes)
Pleased to meet you, baby
I want to be your honey
So let's go tell your daddy and mommy
(yes, oh, yes)

This won't get any easier
now that your heart is beating in my hand
I'll try not to destroy you, baby,
Even though we both know I can
Oh, you know I can

Make love with the lights on, baby
Tell me what you see
Clear the bed to lie on, darlin'
Make a mess of me
Here's my dress to try on, baby
Let me be your man
I will call you pretty, darlin'
Tell me what I am

Oh, oh, oh
C-c-c-can I have your number?
Can I have you, baby?
Can we run away together?
(yes, oh, yes)
I would walk on water
I would walk on fire
I would sell my soul to the devil
(Yes, oh, yes)

And this won't get any easier
now that your heart is beating in my hand
I'll try not to destroy you, baby,
Even though we both know I can
Oh, you know I can

Make love with the lights on, baby
Tell me what you see
Clear the bed to lie on, darlin'
Make a mess of me
Here's my dress to try on, baby
let me be your man
I will call you pretty, darlin'
Tell me what I am

(yes, oh, yes)
(yes, oh, yes)
(yes, oh, yes)
(yes, oh, yes)

Make love with the lights on, baby
Tell me what you see
Clear the bed to lie on, darlin'
make a mess of me
Here's my dress to try on, baby
Let me be your man
I will call you pretty, darlin
Tell me what I am

la la lie la la lie la la lie
la la lie la la lie la la lie
la la lie la la lie la la lie
la la lie la la lie la la lie
HA!

i've got a real one for you
i'm done with compromise
lies of white and black and blue
they hide inside those big brown eyes

You've got me, dirty angel
aren't you ready to come clean?
when i'm looking down with sorrow
you say that i'm being mean
Don't you hear me when i say i'm lonely?
do i kid myself to think that i am your one and only?

i can't tell you how many times i've cried over you, my baby
i've had one too many sleepless nights over you, my baby

baby, AH

can't you see i'm wounded, baby?
go ahead and put me down
You keep saying that i'm crazy
there's just rumors going 'round
i'm dying to believe you
tell me, what else should i do?
who would want to play a fool
then find out it was true?

Don't you hear me when i say i'm lonely?
do i kid myself to think that i am your one and only?

i can't tell you how many times i've cried over you, my baby
i've had one too many sleepless nights over you, my baby

baby, AH
baby, HA

cross your heart and hope to die
white or black it's still a lie
every city that you fly
i sit home and wonder why
while you're out there getting high
one more night for me to cry
can you look me in the eye

cross your heart and hope to die
hope to die
hope to die
hope to die
hope to die

i can't tell you how many times i've cried over you, my baby
i've had one too many sleepless nights over you, my baby

i can't tell you how many times i've cried over you, my baby
i've had one too many sleepless nights over you, my baby

i can't tell you how many times i've cried over you, my baby
i've had one too many sleepless nights over you, my baby

When I woke up this afternoon
I knew I felt uneasy.
But no matter what I'd do
nothing seemed to please me.
I couldn't get out of my head
that little fight we had last night.
Though I would much rather be dead
than admit to myself
that you were right.
Oh, oh, oh, oh

(chorus)
Don't be silly,
turn on Billie.
She's singing us to sleep
so we can dream our lives away.
And if we wake up in full makeup,
we'll paint the town blue
'cause baby, red is so passe.

Now don't look at me that way.
You know I just can't take it.
And no matter what they say
I know that we will make it.
Cause when we are good, we're grand
but when we're bad we are very bad.
But I stick around 'cause the love
that you're giving me is the best
I've ever had.
Oh, oh, oh, oh

(repeat chorus)

And it's funny to me,
the way that things have worked out.
There's no doubt (in my mind)
that you can't recall
what this all was about.
So let's give it up.

Love me sweetly and completely
Come and sit beside me
'cause you know I need you near.
When you're wheelin'
with that feelin'
we'll paint the town pink
'cause baby, red is so last year.

(repeat chorus)

(scatting until the end of the song)

. . .


This is the end of us
You'll never hear my voice again
You are ridiculous
With your imaginary friends

All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come crawling back

This is the end of us
And everything you said we'd be
And all the love I bring
I will be taking home with me

I do not want
For you to be happy
I do not want
For you to be happy
All that I want
Is for you to come crawling back

(bridge)
i want you to come to me
i want you to come to me
i want you to come to me
i want you to, i want you to...

This is the first day
Of many years of sorrow
You won't forget my name
But I'll forget your face tomorrow

All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come to ruin
All that I want
Is for you to come crawling back to me
Is for you to come crawling back to me
Is for you to come craling back...
Is for you to come crawling back to me

. . .


We'd be so less fragile
If we're made from metal
And our hearts from iron
And our minds from steel
if we built an armour
For our tender bodies
Could we love each other
Would we strive to feel

And you want three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You say you want to know her like a lover
And undo her damage, she'll be new again
Soon you'll find that if you try to save her
It will renews her anger
You will never win

And you want three wishes:
You want never bitter
And all delicious
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

You want three wishes:
One to fly the heavens
One to swim like fishes
You want never bitter
And all delicious
And a clean conscience
And all it's blisses
You want one true lover with a thousand kisses
You want soft and gentle and never vicious
And then one you're saving for a rainy day
If your lover ever takes her love away

. . .


And it was the final straw
Though I never knew just what he saw
Never underestimate
The power of…
Never underestimate
The power of…

He could bring me to my knees
Though I never saw just what he sees
I was callin' out for him
He never turned
I was callin' out for him
I never learned

Never…. Ever….
Never underestimate
The power of…
Never… Ever…
Never underestimate
The power of…

Saw you walking down the street
Those Velcro sneakers on your feet
You were walking faster than
I could run
I was walking in the shade
And you, the sun

Now we can watch it fall
Cause they built it up to tall
Now I'm sinking lower than
All my tears
Sinking lower than
All your fears

Never… Ever…
Never underestimate
The power of…
Never… Ever…
Never underestimate
The power of…

Mmmm... Mmmm…

Boy you've got a lot to learn
Wait until it is my turn
And, you stand ever

Never… Ever…
Never underestimate
The power of…
Never… Ever…
Never underestimate
The power of…
Never underestimate
The power of…
Never underestimate
The power of…

what were you doing in my dream last night, honey
well i thought i liked that you're uptight, baby
well it's a mystery to me how you keep on slipping in my mind
and it's downright dirty that this old wound won't heal with time

well you could wash my brain
you could tear out my heart
but i would never forget you

you could change my world
i could make a new start
but i would never forget you

and it's kill, kill, killing me
and it's kill, kill, killing me
that i'm still in love with you

just when i think i've got you in safe keeping
that's when your memory, it comes 'round creeping
well it's an ache i can't shake and it's creeped down deep into my core
but babe i can't fake it, i can't take this heartbreak anymore

well you could wash my brain
you could tear out my heart
but i would never forget you

you could change my world
i could make a new start
but i would never forget you

and it's kill, kill, killing me
and it's kill, kill, killing me
that i'm still in love with you

i asked you please to leave my heart but you refused to go
i can't take this pain much longer
you insist on teaching me what i already know
absence made this heart grow fonder

. . .


Well, I've been lying here
All alone
Wondering if you are
Ever coming home
I left on the light
By the bed
In case, you could come to call
What is wrong with me?
I said, to myself

I never really thought
It would last
And here I am now
Fading fast
But I will not sleep tonight
No, I could not sleep tonight

Where would you go?
What would you do?
If it wasn't me, it was you
Where would you go?
And what would you do?
If it wasn't me, it was you
If it wasn't me, it was you

If only you could feel
My heart race
And see the light
On my face
Then you would know the truth
And I would know the truth
Then maybe you don't like
What I brought
Well maybe I am not
What you thought
But don't worry
You are not
What I thought you were
…either

Where would you go?
What would you do?
If it wasn't me, it was you
Where would you go?
And what would you do?
If it wasn't me, it was you
If it wasn't me, it was you

No matter how hard it gets
No matter how thick your head is
There's always something
More to learn
Even if you just want to quit

Where would you go?
And what would you do?
If it wasn't me, it was you
Where would you go?
And what would you do?
Where would you go?
And what would you do?
Where would you go?
And what would you do?
Where would you go?
And what would you do?
If it wasn't me, it was you (x3)

hey, come on
and take off all the clothes that you have on
and make love to me until the sun
comes up
or until we decide we are done

or until all the prayers
that go to heaven get an answer
ooh ooh ooh...(repeat oohs)

you are absurd
you say the cutest things i've ever heard
i don't think i can take another word

or my head might explode
and i will have to go to heaven
ooh ooh ooh... (repeat oohs)

love me...
love me...
love me...

no i said
i do not think that it's all in your head
but we may not find out until we're dead

or until earth explodes
and everybody goes to heaven
ooh ooh ooh... (repeat oohs until end)
