I used to love the tenderloin
Till I made some tender corn
Then I met some ladies from Marin
We took the highway to the One
Up the coast to catch some sun
They left me with these blisters on my skin
Don't know what I was on but I think it grows in Oregon
So, I kept on going, going, gone right through
I drove into Seattle rain, fell in love then missed the train
That coulda took me right back home to you

I been high
I been low
I been yes
And I been oh hell no
I been rock 'n roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco
Ooo ooo ooo, oh oh

Every day's so caffeinated
I wish they were Golden Gated
Fillmore couldn't feel more miles away
So, wrap me up return to sender
Let's forget this 5 year bender
Take me to my city by the Bay

I never knew all that I had
Now Alcatraz don't sound so bad
At least they'd have a hella fine merlot
If I could wish upon a star
I would hitch a cable car
To the place that I can always call my own

I been high
I been low
I been yes
And I been oh hell no
I been rock 'n roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco
I been up
I been down
I been so damn lost since you're not around
I been reggae and calypso
Won't you save me San Francisco

To tell you the truth
I miss everything... everything
It's a wild, wide, beautiful world
But there's a wide-eyed girl back there
And she means everything... everything

I been stop
I been go
I been yes
And I been oh hell no
I been rock 'n roll and disco
Won't you save me San Francisco

I been up
I been down
I been so damn lost since you're not around
I been reggae and calypso
Won't you save me San Francisco
Oo oo oo, oh oh
Won't you save me San Francisco
Oo oo oo, oh oh
Won't you save me San Francisco

. . .


Your lipstick stains
On the front lobe of my left side brains
I knew I wouldn't forget you
And so, I went and let you blow my mind

Your sweet moonbeam
The smell of you in every single dream I dream
I knew when we collided
You're the one, I have decided who's one of my kind

Hey, soul sister
Ain't that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know
Hey, soul sister
I don't wanna miss a single thing you do... tonight

Just in time
I'm so glad you have a one-track mind, like me
You gave my life direction
A game show love connection, we can't deny I, I, I
I'm so obsessed
My heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest
I believe in you
Like a virgin, you're Madonna and I'm always gonna wanna blow your mind

Hey, soul sister
Ain't that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you move ain't fair you know
Hey, soul sister
I don't wanna miss a single thing you do... tonight

The way you can cut a rug
Watching you's the only drug I need
You're so gangsta, I'm so thug
You're the only one I'm dreaming of, you see
I can be myself now finally
In fact there's nothing I can't be
I want the world to see you be with me

Hey, soul sister
Ain't that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo
The way you movie ain't fair you know
Hey, soul sister
I don't wanna miss a single thing you do... tonight

. . .


Hey, did you hear about the one that got away, they say
He looked left, she turned right
Meant to be together but not that night
It's when fate's running late, we tend to make mistakes, we go
'Round and 'round from love to love
It's either way too much or not enough

Gimme
Lazy days with nothing better to do
Than singing "Old black water keep on rolling"
While I wait for you
I don't care if it rains, I'll be just fine
I'm leaving the ghosts behind until

I got you
I got you
You're the sun through my window
Warming my skin, oh you
I got you
Hey

Then, when one of them was taken,
The other one was waiting for the next big thing
To bring them to the gates of heaven
Or maybe just a late night in Vegas
It's true that's what we do when we're going down swinging
Then coming up singing the blues
Wearing out my shoes
Chasing new faces to get to you

Driving home on a summer night
Singing "Old black water keep on rolling"
Till the time is right
I don't care if it rains, I'll be just fine
Sit back, enjoy the rude until

I got you
I got you
You're the sun through my window
Warming my skin, oh you
I got you
Like Sonny and Cher
Except I'll be there for you
I got you
Let Old black water bring us together

Old black water keep on rolling
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shining on me
Old black water keep on rolling
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shining on me
Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama come and take me by the hand
Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama

Here she comes
I got you
I got you
You're the sun through my window
Warming my skin, oh you
I got you
Like Sonny and Cher
You know I'll be there for you
I got you
Let Old black water bring us together
You
I got you
I got you
I got you, baby

By the hand hand, take me by the hand, pretty mama
Dance with you're daddy all night long
Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama come and take me by the hand
By the hand hand, take me by the hand, pretty mama
Dance with you're daddy all night long
Wanna hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama come and take me by the hand

. . .


I wanna take you with me
To life with no more yesterdays
We can start again awake and so excited
And change the way we always push, we always pull

I'll open up and be your parachute
And I'll never let you down
So open up and be my human angel
And we'll only hit the ground
Running

And when the world gets sharp
And tries to cut you down to size
And makes you feel like giving in, oh
I will stay, I will rain, I will wash the words
And pain away and I will
Chase away the way we push, the way we pull, you're beautiful

I'll open up and be your parachute
And I'll never let you down
So open up and be my human angel
And we'll only hit the ground
Running, running

And if it feels like we might drop
It will stop so, don't look down
It wouldn't be the same without you
This life is too good to give up on

I'll open up and be your parachute
And I'll never let you down
So open up and be my human angel
And we'll only hit the ground
And we're gonna hit the ground
Running, running

. . .


You and I, we're friends from outer space
Afraid to let go
The only two who understood this place
And as far as we know
We were way before our time
As bold as we were blind
Just another perfect mistake
Another bridge to take
On the way to letting go

This ain't goodbye
This is just where love goes
When words aren't warm enough
To keep away the cold
Oh no, this ain't goodbye
It's not where our story ends
But I know you can't be mine
Not the way you've always been
As long as we've got time
Then this ain't goodbye
Oh no, this ain't goodbye

We were stars up in the sunlit sky
That no one else could see
Neither of us thought to ever ask why
It wasn't meant to be
Maybe we were way too high
To ever understand
Baby, we were victims of all
All the foolish plans
We began to divide

But this ain't goodbye
This is just where love goes
When words aren't warm enough
To keep away the cold
Oh no, this ain't goodbye
It's not where our story ends
But I know you can't be mine
Not the way you've always been
As long as we've got time
This ain't goodbye
Oh no, this ain't goodbye

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na
This ain't goodbye

You and I, we're friends from outer space
Afraid to let go
The only two who understood this place
And as far as we know

This ain't goodbye
Oh no, this ain't goodbye
This ain't goodbye
Oh no, this ain't goodbye
This ain't goodbye
This is just where love goes
When words aren't warm enough
To keep away the cold
Oh no, this ain't goodbye
It's not where our story ends
But I know you can't be mine
Not the way you've always been
Oh no, don't say it

Na na na
Na na na
Na na na
Don't say goodbye

. . .


While everybody else is getting out of bed
I'm usually getting in it
I'm not in it to win it
And there's a thousand ways you can skin it
My feet have been on the floor
Flat like an Idol singer
Remember Winger? I digress
I confess you are the best thing in my life
But I'm afraid when I hear stories about husband and wife
There's no happy endings, no Henry Lee
But you are the greatest thing about me

If it's love
And we decide that it's forever
No one else could do it better
If it's love
And we're 2 birds of a feather
Then the rest is just whatever

And if I'm addicted to loving you
And you're addicted to my love too
We can be them 2 birds of a feather
That flock together

Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, love
That's enough for me

Took a loan on the house I own
Can't be a queen bee without a bee throne
I wanna buy you everything except cologne
'Cause it's poison
We can travel to Spain
Where the rain falls mainly on the plain
Sounds insane, 'cause it is
We can laugh, we can sing
Have ten kids and give 'em everything
Hold our cell phones up in the air
And just be glad that we made it here alive
On a spinning ball in the middle of space
I love you from your toes to your face

If it's love
And we decide that it's forever
No one else could do it better
If it's love
And we're 2 birds of a feather
Then the rest is just whatever

And if I'm addicted to loving you
And you're addicted to my love too
We can be them 2 birds of a feather
That flock together

Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, love
That's enough for me

You can move in
I won't ask where you been
'Cause everybody has a past
When we're older
We'll do it all over again

When everybody else is getting out of bed
I'm usually getting in it
I'm not in it to win it
I'm in it for you

If it's love
And we're 2 birds of a feather
Then the rest is just whatever
And the rest is just whatever
If it's love
And we decide that it's forever
No one else could do it better

And if I'm addicted to loving you
And you're addicted to my love too
We can be them 2 birds of a feather
That flock together

Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, love
Got to have something to keep us together
Love, love
That's enough for me

. . .


This bipolar love affair
It just ain't where it's at for me anymore
So don't let the door hit you when you leave
You throw me in the fire just to save my life
A pretty little liar
When I call you out you'd rather put up a fight
Than just come clean

Get on your way to making someone else feel low
Then higher than they ever thought they could go
You already know
I'm giving you up
You're letting me down
Stop pretending that you're gonna turn yourself around
You already know no no
You already know no no
Don't ask me why
You already know

I was the shoulder you leaned on
You made me feel like the next James Bond
007 oh hell, you were heaven to me
But while you were saying what I wanted to hear
You started breaking ground on a new frontier
Always making love, but never to me

So get on your way to making someone else feel low
Then higher than they ever thought they could go
You already know
I'm giving you up
You're letting me down
Stop pretending that you're gonna turn yourself around
You already know no no
You already know no no
Don't ask me why
You already know

You already know that I'm done waiting
Going crazy hating myself for loving you
At least the one side of you I thought I knew

You already know
You already know no no
You already know no no
Don't ask me why

. . .


I'd give anything but I won't give up on you
I'd say anything, but not goodbye
I will run with your changes and I'm always on your side
And there's not a word that I've ever heard that would make me change my mind

Words they'll try to shake you
Don't let them break you
Or stop your world from turning
When words keep you from feeling good
Use them as firewood and let them burn

Like stones in your pocket people try to wear you down
Someone always wants to take the love you've found
So let's run with these changes and I want you by my side
And there's not a word I've ever heard that could make me change my mind

Words they'll try to shake you
Don't let them break you
Or stop your world from turning
When words keep you from feeling good
Use them firewood and let 'em burn

Let them burn
Let them burn
Underneath every word somebody's heart been broken
With or without words we try to forget

Words they'll try to shake us
Don't let them break us
Or stop our world from turning
When words keep you from feeling good
Use them as firewood and let them burn

Words they'll try to shake you
Don't let them break you
Or stop your world, stop your world from turning
When words keep you from feeling good
Use them as firewood and let them burn

Let them burn
Let them burn

. . .


The dust has finally settled down
The sun is shining on these pieces that are scattered all around
This house was everything we knew
Its where we kept our love and
every single memory of me and you
Every letter, every note, every dress you never wore under your coat
Thrown away
Brick by brick, we can build it from the floor
If we hold onto each other, we'll be better than before.
And brick by brick,
we will get back to yesterday
When I made your body shiver and
when you took my breath away,
you took my breath away.

The sky has made it back to blue,
everything that's left is telling us the worst of it is through.
Home has never felt so right, there's nothing in the way.
There's nothing in between us
knowing where we're going is inside.
Every letter that I wrote,
every dress you never wore under your coat
Thrown away
Brick by brick, we can build it from the floor
If we hold on to each other,
we'll be better than before.
And brick by brick,
we'll get back to yesterday.
When I made your body shiver
and when you took my breath away.

All the pictures that we've taken
and the songs that we have played
They have all kept track and
followed back the love that we have made.
Now they're spread out on the
surface where we can try to congregate
It's not too late to believe that we can get it all again
Brick by brick, we can build it from the floor,
If we hold onto each other,
we'll be better than before.
And brick by brick,
we'll get back to yesterday
When I made your body shiver and
when you took my breath away,
you took my breath away.
Brick by brick
We'll get back to yesterday,
when I made your body shiver and
when you took my breath away,
you took my breath away.

. . .


California, dancing in the ocean
How I love you, better with some lotion
Sun is always shining.
No one compares to you.

Sidney baby, young and like a flower
How I want you, give me just an hour.
You seem like an angel.
No one compares to you.

You're the best book I ever read.
You're the smartest thing I ever said.
You're breakfast in bed.

When in Norway you can do me more ways
Than any other you treat me like a mother loves her baby
Baby, do I do it for you?
Oh, 'cause all I ever wanted, baby, was baby to do it for you.

You're the best dream in my head.
You're my calm thought when I see red.
You're better than punk rock cred.

You're breakfast in bed.
You're breakfast in bed.
You're breakfast in bed.

Wanna please you, wanna Japanese you
How I need you, dress you up and feed you.
Love you like a daddy loves his baby, baby do it for me.

You're the fastest race I ever led.
You're the finest bride I'll ever wed.
You're the skin I never wanna shed.

You're breakfast in bed.
You're breakfast in bed.
You're breakfast in bed.

. . .


Forever could never be long enough for me
To feel like I've had long enough with you
Forget the world now
We won't let them see
But there's one thing left to do
Now that the weight has lifted
And love has surely shifted my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this café
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Say you will.. mmm mmm

Together could never be close enough for me
To feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I'll wear out the words
I love you and you're beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love has finally showed her my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this café
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Say you will.. mmm mmm

Promise me
You'll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this café
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Marry me

. . .



Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's time to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey 

Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated 

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking at yourself out there 

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that there's time to grow, hey, hey 

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' Jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land 

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there 

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you're wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone
conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me 

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the Milky Way 

Repeat 1st Chorus

. . .


Ho-ho-ho
Shake up the happiness
Wake up the happiness
Shake up the happiness, it's Christmas time

There's a story that I was told and I wanna tell the world before I get too old
I don't remember it, so let's December it
And reassemble it, oh yeah!

Once upon a time in a town like this, a little girl made a great big wish
To fill the world with happiness and be on Santa's magic list.

Chorus (x2)
Shake it up, shake up the happiness!
Wake it up, wake up the happiness!
C'mon ya'll, it's Christmas time!

Ho-ho-ho
Ho-ho-ho, it's Christmas time!

At the same time, miles away, a boy made a wish that day
That the world would be okay and Santa Claus would hear him say,
"I got dreams and I got love, I got my feet on the ground and family above,
Can you send some happiness with my best to the rest of the people of the East and the West?
And maybe every once in a while, you'll give my grandma a reason to smile.

Tis the season of smile
It's cold but we'll be freezin' in style
Let me meet a girl one day that wants to spread some love this way
We can let our souls run free and she can open some happiness with me.

Chorus (x2)
Shake it up, shake up the happiness!
Wake it up, wake up the happiness!
C'mon ya'll, it's Christmas time!

I know you're out there, I hear your reindeer
I see the snow where your boots have been
I'm gonna show them, some day we'll know then
Then love will grow and believe again.

Chorus (x2)
Shake it up, shake up the happiness!
Wake it up, wake up the happiness!
C'mon ya'll, it's Christmas time!

Ho-ho-ho!
Ho-ho-ho, it's Christmas time!

Chorus (x2)
Shake it up, shake up the happiness!
Wake it up, wake up the happiness!
C'mon ya'll, it's Christmas time!

Ho-ho-ho!
Ho-ho-ho, it's Christmas time!

This ain't a threat but I think I better warn ya
Gonna fall in love if you go to California
I did and this is how I know..

By the beach north of San Jose
Met the right girl and it sounds cliche
but we decided not to take it slow

I said why wait your my soulmate
Took her by the hand in the golden state
Now that your mine things are gonna be fine...

First came love and a baby carriage
Hardly knew the people at my own damn marriage
where an open bar can open your mind

(Chorus)
You save my life with every word you say
You shine your light for me to find the way
Just hold me tight and cross your heart to stay
Here with me born to be
Every part of you in Half Moon Bay...

Up in Tiburon where the girls are warm
We stay inside while the rain clouds form
And thank god for rainy days like these

Just when the time has come to retire
Baby starts cryin so we dance by the fire
Always does the trick you better believe

(Chorus)
You save my life with every word you say
You shine your light for me to find the way
Just hold me tight and cross your heart to stay
Here with me born to be
Every part of you in Half Moon Bay...

Why go slow if it's nice and steady
We all know its in the stars already
oh ohh oh ohhhh
Why say no if yes feels right
You just go to go where it feels like home

This ain't a threat but I think I better warn ya
Gonna fall in love if you go to California
I did and this is how I know..

Repeat (Chorus)
You save my life with every word you say
You shine your light for me to find the way
Just hold me tight and cross your heart to stay
Here with me born to be
Every part of you in Half Moon Bay...

. . .


I though I knew it all,
I've been through the highs, said all my goodbyes,
Learned to run before I learned how to crawl.
It's not worth fighting for if one of us is sure,
And one of us is dying, trying to find love's cure.

I have waited all my life to paint these cities red,
Thoughts I've always had here
are stuck inside my head,
It's not worth fighting for if one of us wants more,
And one of us is dying, trying to find love's door.

When we learn how to fly,
We forget how to walk,
When we learn how to sing,
We don't want to hear each other talk,
Here we are at the finish line,
Here we are at the finish line.

And you, you really thought you knew,
Everything to do.
With holding onto me and holding on,
This time is making me slip right through your hands.
And now you don't understand,
Trying to find love all yourself.

When we learn how to fly,
We forget how to walk,
When we learn how to sing,
We don't want to hear each other talk,
When we know what we want,
We forget what we need,
When you find who you are,
You forget about me.

Here we are at the finish line
Here we are at the finish line
Here we are at the finish line.

. . .


You have my heart, and we'll never be worlds apart
Maybe in magazines, but you'll still be my star

Baby 'cause in the dark, you can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there, with you I'll always share
Because

When the sun shines, we'll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out till the end

Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

Under my umbrella (ella ella, eh eh eh, eh eh eh) x3


These fancy things, will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for infinity
When the war has took it's part, when the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
Because

When the sun shines, we?ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out till the end

Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

Under my umbrella (ella ella, eh eh eh, eh eh eh) x3

You can run into my arms, it's okay don't be alarmed
Come here to me, there's no distance in between our love

So go on and let the rain pour, I'll be all you need and more
Because

When the sun shines, we?ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath, I'ma stick it out till the end

Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

Under my umbrella (ella ella, eh eh eh)

It's raining, oh baby, it's raining
Baby come here to me, come here to me

It's raining, oh baby, it's raining
You can always come here to me, come here to me

It's pouring rain, it's pouring rain
Come here to me, come here to me

. . .


I wanna take you with me
To life with no more yesterdays
We can start again awake and so excited
And change the way we always push, we always pull

I'll open up and be your parachute
And I'll never let you down
So open up and be my human angel
And we'll only hit the ground
Running

And when the world gets sharp
And tries to cut you down to size
And makes you feel like giving in, oh
I will stay, I will rain, I will wash the words
And pain away and I will
Chase away the way we push, the way we pull, you're beautiful

I'll open up and be your parachute
And I'll never let you down
So open up and be my human angel
And we'll only hit the ground
Running, running

And if it feels like we might drop
It will stop so, don't look down
It wouldn't be the same without you
This life is too good to give up on

I'll open up and be your parachute
And I'll never let you down
So open up and be my human angel
And we'll only hit the ground
And we're gonna hit the ground
Running, running

. . .


Forever could never be long enough for me
To feel like I've had long enough with you
Forget the world now
We won't let them see
But there's one thing left to do
Now that the weight has lifted
And love has surely shifted my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this café
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Say you will.. mmm mmm

Together could never be close enough for me
To feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I'll wear out the words
I love you and you're beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love has finally showed her my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this café
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Say you will.. mmm mmm

Promise me
You'll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this café
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Say you will.. mmm mmm
Marry me
