    Saturday Night

    Saturday Night

    Dotted lines, waiting for the setting sun
    But the island is waiting for no one
    Not coming back until I'm done

    Come along. If you will then I'll gladly
    Pay the fee to go over the Tappan Zee
    If you’re there don't know why I'd ever leave

    We've got no time to waste
    This place never sleeps
    Got no time to waste

    It’s Saturday night and I'm in New York City
    Saturday night, you never looked so pretty
    Let our lives reflect the light
    On Saturday night
    Saturday night

    Hypnotized and you’re shining in the shade
    Getting high on the rising promenade
    Take a bite of the apple
    Don't be afraid

    Come along. Feel the rumble from the streets
    See the concrete jungle from the trees
    Take a bite of the apple
    It tastes so sweet

    We've got no time to waste
    This place never sleeps
    Got no time to waste

    It’s Saturday night and I'm in New York City
    Saturday night you never looked so pretty
    Let our lives reflect the light
    On Saturday night
    Saturday night

    It’s Saturday night and it never stops giving
    No time to die 'cause I'm too busy living
    It can't be wrong if it feels so right
    On Saturday night

    I don't know why
    I don't know why
    I'd ever leave
    Makes no sense to me
    I don't know why
    I don't know why
    I'd ever leave

    It’s Saturday night and I'm in New York City
    Saturday night you never looked so pretty
    Let our lives reflect the light
    On Saturday night
    Saturday night

    It’s Saturday night and it never stops giving
    Too busy to die 'cause I'm too busy living
    It can't be wrong if it feels so right
    On Saturday night
    Saturday night

    It’s Saturday night
    Saturday night
    It’s Saturday night
    Saturday night
    Saturday night

    So Much Trouble

    So Much Trouble

    Baby, you're so much trouble
    Baby, you're so much trouble

    What did you get yourself into
    You're trippin' and I don't know what to do
    Fumbling to get your story straight
    There's no need to rush it it's too late
    Lovin' you is more than I can take

    Baby, you're so much trouble
    Baby, you're so much trouble
    And lately I'm seeing double
    Cause baby you're so much trouble

    What did I let myself fall for?
    You’re trippin’ and I’m comin’ back for more
    Things are not the way you make them sound
    Moving side to side then up and down
    Lovin' you but then you get around

    Baby, you're so much trouble
    Baby, you're so much trouble
    And lately I'm seeing double
    Cause baby you're so much trouble

    I never minded a little but your trouble's a little too much
    You wear a disguise, too hot for the eyes, but you're frozen to the touch
    I think I lost count, every time you went out, then say he was a friend
    They could always see you’ve served more than Mickey D and begged me to wise up, but then

    Off you go with a smile
    What you got girl must be golden, those
    Legs they go for a mile
    I'm in trouble
    Off you go with a smile
    What you got girl, what you got girl

    Baby, you're so much trouble
    Baby, you're so much trouble
    And baby, I hate to burst your bubble
    But baby you're so much trouble

    Brountry (When I'm Drinkin')

    Brountry (When I’m Drinkin’)

    When I'm drinkin' I start thinkin' 'bout the taste of you
    Tastes so, fine it's closing time, two shots to make a move
    Catch a buzz like light year does, nasty goes down smooth
    When I'm drinking I stop thinking...ah...you

    Bloody Mary, how contrary
    Where does your garden grow
    We’re dropping bombs to get it on
    So line them up right in a row
    A margarita for the señorita
    With a shot of yea for me
    Roll out the barrel with that bitch Carol
    I ain't got no place to be

    You’re Bar Time’s not mine

    When I'm drinkin' I start thinkin' 'bout the taste of you
    Tastes so, fine it's closing time, two shots to make a move
    Catch a buzz like light year does, nasty goes down smooth
    When I'm drinking I stop thinking...ah...you

    You know it's on like donkey kong
    When you buy the next round for me
    Hot buttered rum, let's have some fun
    and set that monkey free
    Shirley Temple had a slippery nipple
    When we had sex on the beach
    Thank your mom for the Jager bomb
    But she's a little too old for me

    You’re Bar time’s not mine

    When I'm drinkin' I start thinkin' 'bout the taste of you
    Tastes so, fine it's closing time, two shots to make a move
    Catch a buzz like light year does, nasty goes down smooth
    When I'm drinking I stop thinking...ah...you

    When I'm drinkin' I start thinkin' 'bout the taste of you
    Tastes so, fine it's closing time, two shots to make a move
    Catch a buzz like light year does, nasty goes down smooth
    When I'm drinking I stop thinking...ah...you

    Better Days Ahead

    Better Days Ahead

    Well, I hope you’re doing well in your little slice of hell
    Does that count for something?
    So you know, I’m doing fine in my war-torn state of mind
    Thanks for never asking

    Instead of tearing down the walls
    I just burned my bridges
    And there ain’t no turning back

    I didn’t mean to hurt your wounded pride, but it’s always greener on the other side
    So you built your fences
    I think about it every single day.  How you went and took my heart away
    And you lost my senses

    I didn’t mean to hurt you either way
    I know you don’t believe me
    But you’ve got to hear me say

    I’ll be better in the end
    Our together days are through
    But if you ever need a friend
    I’ll be there for you
    Someday soon you’re gonna see
    You’re best days were here with me, but
    I’ll be better in the end
    I’ve got better days ahead

    I didn’t mean to hurt you either way
    I know you don’t believe me, girl
    But you’ve got to hear me say

    I’ll be better in the end
    Our together days are through
    But if you ever need a friend
    I’ll be there for you
    Someday soon you’re gonna see
    You’re best days were here with me, but
    I’ll be better in the end
    I’ve got better days ahead

    Let Me In

    Let Me In

    I feel fine when it’s all over
    I feel fine when it’s all done
    It’s on my mind. I’m coming over
    But It’s alright ‘cause I’m a closer
    So baby let me in
    You gonna let me in
    Come on let me in
    You gotta let me in

    Time after time I’ll tell you this bird done flew
    Don’t know why, but my mind keeps landing on you
    Flyin’ solo is alright, alright
    No one needs to know, it’s alright

    I feel fine when it’s all over
    I feel fine when it’s all done
    It’s on my mind I’m coming over
    But it’s alright ‘cause I’m a closer
    So baby let me in
    You gonna let me in
    Come on let me in
    You gotta let me in

    I drop by just to find another with you
    Smooth jazz, candle light, two silhouettes, you’re so cruel
    But he’ll never know I’m alright, alright
    No one needs to know. it’s alright.

    You were mine, but you got colder
    You were mine, but it’s all done
    Still on my mind, I’m coming over
    Yeah it’s alright ‘cause I’m a closer
    Baby let me in
    You gonna let me in
    Come on let me in
    You gotta let me
    Let me
    Let me

    I feel fine
    I feel fine
    I feel fine
    Yeah I feel fine fine fine

    Night and Day

    Night and Day

    She loves me like the first time that I saw her
    The moon was bright, the stars right, aligned for me to find her
    I need her like, I need her like a fish needs water
    With the rising tide, our paths collide
    She pulled me under

    I gotta take, take, take her away
    Before she catches you’re eye
    It’s gonna take, take, take me forever
    Looking for a sign

    But I like the way she give it to me night and day
    Her goodbyes are no surprise so I’ll be on my way
    But to tell her that I love her, would she go and put up a fight?
    ‘Cause I’d like to have her give it to me right
    Night and day

    She loves me like pajamas on a Sunday morning
    It feels so right, I just might climb back in with her
    I need her like, I need her like the sheets need cotton
    No sleeping time, the stars collide
    She pulls me under

    I gotta take, take, take her away
    Before she catches you’re eye
    It’s gonna take, take, take me forever
    Looking for a sign

    But I like the way she give it to me night and day
    Her goodbyes are no surprise so I’ll be on my way
    But to tell her that I love her, would she go and put up a fight?
    ‘Cause I’d like to have her give it to me right
    Night and day

    I gotta take, take, take her away
    Before she catches you’re eye
    It’s gonna take, take, take me forever
    Looking for a sign

    But I like the way she give it to me night and day
    Her goodbyes are no surprise so I’ll be on my way
    But to tell her that I love her, well it doesn’t matter anyway
    But I’d like to have her give it to me right, right

    Yeah I like the way she give it to me night and day
    Her goodbyes are no surprise so I’ll be on my way
    But to tell her that I love her, would she go and put up a fight?
    ‘Cause I’d like to have her give it to me right, give it to me right
    Night and day

    Love for Life

    Love For Life

    Let’s just take a walk
    I’ve got nothing to say
    We don’t have to talk
    Just let the music play

    Butterflies are in the sky and in my heart
    The only place I want to be is where you are
    So let’s just take a walk
    Through every love cliche

    Good times and bad times
    We’ve come so far

    It seems like yesterday that I first saw your smile
    And I can’t help but stop and stare once in awhile
    I never dreamed that you could be forever mine
    I've finally found someone to share this Love for Life

    Butterflies are on my lips and in your eyes
    Never thought it’d feel so good to see you cry
    So let's just take walk
    I've got something to say

    Good times and bad times
    'Till death do us part

    It seems like yesterday that I first saw your smile
    And I can’t help but stop and stare once in awhile
    I never dreamed that you would be forever mine
    I've finally found someone to share this Love for Life

    Good Luck

    Good Luck

    Take off
    Touch down  
    Out on the edge of sin town
    Palm trees
    Warm breeze
    My baby gives me a gentle squeeze

    First time
    That's right  
    Can't  wait to see the strip at night
    The lights go on, but ours go off
    She wants to keep me all to herself

    Who am I to put up a fight
    You know what I’ll get if I play my cards right
    So pour me a drink, a Bacardi on ice
    And gimme a kiss for good luck

    From NYC
    To gay Paris
    A reader’s digest world to see
    Is that the king?
    Is that the Palace?
    Let's raise a toast with a yard long chalice

    Cold beer
    In the Stratosphere
    Think I can see your house from here
    What the hell?
    Wedding bells?  
    Or is it my head?
    I just can't tell.

    Who am I to put up a fight
    You know what I’ll get if I play my cards right
    So pour me a drink, a Bacardi on ice
    And gimme a kiss for good luck

    Who am I to put up a fight
    Spin that wheel and tool them dice
    So pour me a drink, something easy and nice
    Give me a kiss for good luck

    Now I need a little bit of trouble
    So pour me a drink and make it a double
    Yeah poor me a drink and BLOW ON MY DICE
    I gotta work on my luck

    Heroes Can Survive

    Heroes Can Survive

    I know every song has an end
    They never turn out like I intend
    I'll take everything you have to give
    Your songs sang the words I had to live

    All of the words that meant so much
    Don't matter now
    Lies in the rhymes grow out of touch
    The groove is stuck...

    Now...
    If this is where heroes come alive
    It can't be where heroes come to die
    This is the life we chose to write
    The song is where heroes can survive

    You made every single line your own
    Bleeding passion through the tone
    Whether themes are true might not matter to some
    Though it hurts my eyes, I can't help looking up

    All of the words you can't take back
    Don't matter now
    I'll lay it down but can't keep track
    Of where we're at

    Now...
    If this is where heroes come alive
    It can't be where heroes come to die
    This is the life we chose to write
    The song is where heroes can survive
    Heroes can survive
    Heroes can survive

    I know every song has to end
    They never turned out like you intended
    Left your message on my phone...alone
    So I can hear your voice again

    Stranger to Yourself

    Stranger To Yourself

    I’ve been there, take it from me
    No cares as far as the eye can see
    I was once the one to try and fail
    Yeah I’ve been there, lead and paved the trail

    Keep the dream that got you there in mind
    No one's watching clocks, keeping time
    Don't leave what got you here behind
    No one’s watching clocks

    You've become a stranger to yourself
    Someone turned you into someone else
    You've become a stranger to yourself
    Falling into line and down you fell

    We’ve all been there, the struggle is real
    Just to keep the battle on the field
    I was once the one you saw who cared
    We’ve all been there, you can’t always be prepared

    Keep the dream that got you there in mind
    No one's watching clocks, don't keep time
    Don't leave what got you here behind
    ...watching clocks

    You've become a stranger to yourself
    Someone turned you into someone else
    You've become a stranger to yourself
    Falling into line and down you fell
    Down you fell

    Clock Is Tickin'

    Clock is Tickin’

    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around
    The wall has writing
    It’s burning to the ground
    Searching and searching
    There’s something to be found
    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around

    No one knows where it has gone
    It fell through the cracks
    I did mine, now you do yours
    But you can’t buy it back
    Watch, waste, or find, but time’s a wasting in this big top
    Do, make, or bide
    But time’s a wastin’

    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around
    The wall has writing
    It’s burning to the ground
    Searching and searching
    There’s something to be found
    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around
    And I’m not stickin’ around

    I’ve painted so many smiles
    Forgetting which one was mine
    I’ll pick my favorite one
    And see what else I can find
    They may have gotten me by
    But this one’s showing some teeth
    Leave the others behind
    Watch, waste, or find, but time’s a wasting in this big top
    Do, make, or bide
    But time’s a wastin’

    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around
    The wall has writing
    It’s burning to the ground
    Searching and searching
    There’s something to be found
    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’

    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around
    The wall has writing
    It’s burning
    Searching and searching
    There’s something to be found
    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’

    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around
    The wall has writing
    And it’s burning burning
    Searching and searching

    There’s something to be found
    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around

    The clock is tickin’
    And I’m not stickin’ around

    Too Much Fun

    TOO MUCH FUN

    Excuse me for being cliché
    Somebody scream to start the party
    Drink it with a set-up, you’re on the va-ca
    Jäger and a bull for a boost – eeay
    Get your ass up on the dance floor
    If this groove don’t hit you don’t head for the door
    Let loose, no use in acting hard-core
    Like a bag of Doritos, you know we’ll make more

    Don’t slow your roll
    Don’t have control
    Be somebody tonight
    Let’s go too far
    Let’s buy the bar
    Be somebody tonight 

    The fun has just begun
    There’s nothing like a summer sun
    Inhibition’s on the run
    There’s no such thing as too much fun 

    Cuties in the club, booties on the beach
    Bellybutton bling like a star-bellied sneech
    You know you wanna touch but you just can’t reach
    And you’re saved by the bell if you’re packed like Screech
    Come on girl!  You’re insane to complain
    Just one more shot to adjust your aim
    No look, all touch
    Can’t hurt too much 

    Don’t slow your roll
    Don’t have control
    Be somebody tonight
    Let’s go too far
    Let’s buy the bar
    Be somebody tonight 

    The fun has just begun
    There’s nothing like a summer sun
    Inhibition’s on the run
    There’s no such thing as too much fun

    Hate To Make You Want Me

    HATE TO MAKE YOU WANT ME

    Our story begins on the top of a lie
    In the clouds you feel so high
    And you never, ever, ever wanna say goodbye
    The passion is there then it comes and it goes
    And everybody knows but me
    But with the blinders on, it’s really, really hard to see
    Don’t make me try
    Won’t change my mind this time

    I hate to make you want me
    I hate to break your heart
    I hate that look you give me
    Don’t you even start
    You never tried, I never lied
    You’re eating me alive
    I hate to make you want me

    It’s a slippery slope when you’re coming down
    And all around me is the sound
    They say I told you so, they’ll kick a boy when he’s down
    I should have known, it’s my own damn fault
    Anticipating all your states of mind
    Your next drunk text or call
    I can’t miss you now
    If you’re still around  

    I hate to make you want me
    I hate to break your heart
    I hate that look you give me
    Don’t you even start
    You never tried, I never lied
    You’re eating me alive
    I hate to make you want me 

    I tried
    No lie
    I tried
    Goodbye

    Another Boy

    ANOTHER BOY

    Was it you? Was it me?
    My head’s where my feet should be
    Time comes and time goes
    And time confirms what we already know
    Something that no one can see
    Something that’s got to be free
    The heart gets what the heart wants
    But sometimes it’s just not enough
    It’s easy to hold you
    Repeating, mistaking lust for love
    Beauty is destined to fade
    True love is all that remains

    Something that no one can see
    Something you know but you can’t believe
    Something that no one can see
    And I know just what you want to do
    And I’ll do it if you want me to

    One look from your eyes
    We both know love is compromised
    Save me from your lies
    We both know there’s no alibi
    Beauty is destined to fade
    True love can’t always remain

    Something that no one can see
    Something you know but you can’t believe
    Something that no one can see
    And I know just what you want to do
    But I’ll do it if you want me to

    All this time is wasted
    I’m just another boy
    And you can’t make a choice

    Something that no one can see
    Something you know but you can’t believe
    Something that no one can see
    And I know just what you want to do
    But I’ll do it if you want me to

    It’s something you can’t avoid
    I’m just another boy

    Say What You Will

    SAY WHAT YOU WILL

    I got there early cause I’m always late
    At my favorite pizza place
    A beer for me and a water for you
    I finished one then I started on two
    Just imagine where we could be
    Now you take me seriously
    An hour came and an hour went
    I drank your water then I asked for the check
    What should I expect?
    I suspect only second best
    Your truth is covered in lies

    Say what you will
    Say what you want
    Say it again until your story’s sold
    Wasting my time
    Feed me a line
    It all depends on how the story’s told

    You lift me up just to make me high
    Write our name all across the sky
    Take me down just to show me the way
    Promises made, they faded away
    But you still love how I sing
    But It’s all Badda Boom Badda Bing
    “Nothing ventured” is what you say
    But nothing gained is nothing paid
    What should I expect
    You type the F word on the internet
    No one peeked on the hype, nightlife

    Say what you will
    Say what you want
    Say it again until your story’s sold
    Wasting my time
    Feed me a line
    It all depends on how the story’s told

    Still can’t look me in the eyes
    Why should I apologize?

    Say what you will
    Say what you want
    Say it again until your story’s sold
    Wasting my time
    Feed me a line
    It all depends on how the story’s told

    Say what you will
    Say what you want

    Love Song In The Making

    LOVE SONG IN THE MAKING

    I’m not ready for love
    I’m not sexy enough
    I’m not saying too much
    But I’m craving your touch
    Am I playing too cool?
    Should I be straying from the rules?
    They say that rushing is for fools
    But what am I supposed to do
    When I can’t help it with you?

    You are a love song in the making
    You are a chance worth taking

    I’m not trying to pretend
    (I’m not trying to pretend it’s not desire that you send)
    It’s not desire that you send
    (If it’s desire that you send, then on what does it depend?)
    I’m not staring, look away
    My eyes might tell you what I won’t say

    You are a love song in the making
    You are a chance worth taking
    That perfect line and melody
    That makes you wanna “ooh”
    That makes me wanna sing it every day for you

    You are a love song in the making
    You are a tune I can’t stop playing
    You are a love song in the making
    You are a chance worth taking

    I’m not ready for love

    Love Fades Away

    LOVE FADES AWAY

    Well you say I’m moving too fast
    And all you want is the friendship to last
    And I know that there’s something else on your mind
    My punk band was such a disgrace
    A Mohawk and a safety pin in my face
    Yeah I knew that we’d never get to second base
    Didn’t ever throw your notes away
    Didn’t drink your milkshake – Strawberry
    Didn’t ever dance with Lacey Mae
    But you just don’t want me

    Love fades away
    Fed me that line on the very last date
    Love fades away
    Just turn around and I’ll be okay
    Love fades away
    Oh, and I don’t want to fight
    Love fades away
    But didn’t I treat you right

    Well you say “It’s not you, it’s me”
    I rushed you and you rushed Alfa Fi
    The letters on your house are all Greek to me
    Your pre-med prep, he’s not as cute as me
    But he’s got status and stability
    Yeah I knew that you’d love to be Mrs. M.D.
    Didn’t ever mention freshman fifteen
    Didn’t drink your wine – Strawberry
    Should have got drunk at homecoming
    Cause you just don’t want me

    Love fades away
    Fed me that line on the very last date
    Love fades away
    Just turn around and I’ll be okay
    Love fades away
    Oh, and I don’t want to fight
    Love fades away
    But didn’t I treat you right

    Don't Say A Prayer For Me

    DON’T SAY A PRAYER FOR ME

    You know I’ve waited all week for this drink
    Now is not the time to think
    All about my many defects
    That led you to your latest prospects
    I’m not as weak as you might think

    Don’t say a prayer for me
    They come and go like seasons
    Whatever happens now
    It happens for a reason
    Don’t say a prayer for me
    Cause I’ll be just fine, wait and see

    You know I’ll wait my whole life for one chance
    Not to be a victim of circumstance
    You’d think by now I’d make it
    But you always had to fake it
    Guess it’s true that nice guys finish last

    Don’t say a prayer for me
    They come and go like seasons
    Whatever happens now
    It happens for a reason
    Don’t say a prayer for me
    Cause I’ll be just fine, wait and see
    Wait and see

    Like I Can



    LIKE I CAN

    Turn back the clock in my mind
    It’s still your face that I find
    So many words I can’t take back
    I always want what I can’t have
    I’d go all out to pull you in
    Just to let you go again
    And now your heart is in his hands

    He’s all I am but he’s not me
    He’s where I’ve been in my dreams
    No one can dream like I can
    You asked me not to leave but I ran
    Whoever said it’s never too late
    Never left to make you wait
    He can’t sing your baby to sleep like I can

    Looks like I finally crossed the line
    So wrong to say that she’s not mine
    Why am I so hung up on the past
    It’s not what I planned but I want it back
    I stepped out, He stepped in
    And there’s a brand new dad again
    But he can’t love you like I can

    He’s all I am but he’s not me
    He’s where I’ve been in my dreams

    No one can dream like I can
    You asked me not to leave but I ran
    Whoever said it’s never too late
    Never left to make you wait
    He can’t sing your baby to sleep like I can

    Feels like the wall’s against my back
    I always want what I can’t have

    Just One More Time



    JUST ONE MORE TIME

    Hold the drama for one time
    This life’s too short now to hold the line
    We all wish we could rewind
    Take a look back and see
    What you want is not what you need
    Blink – and miss what you’ve come to be

     Take a moment
    Make it last
    Create a past
    Just one more time
    Laugh and learn
    Live and love
    Don’t get enough
    Just one more time 

    This life we live is a path we take
    Never knowing what’s at stake
    It’s all that you can’t fake
    Take a risk, Take a fall
    Whoever said you can’t have it all?
    It’s your choice…make the call 

    Take a moment
    Make it last
    Create a past
    Just one more time
    Laugh and learn
    Live and love
    Don’t get enough
    Just one more time
    Fight when it’s right
    And learn to cry
    Just one more time
    Make it quick
    But take your time
    One night can change the rest of your life

    It's Up To You



    IT'S UP TO YOU

    Attention to the masses
    Or at least the ones I know
    Don’t miss your chance to witness
    Bask in the afterglow
    It’s gone before you know it
    So you better study hard
    Respect it, don’t reject it
    Or you’ll never get too far
    So glad that you could make it
    This shit can’t be outdone
    Take all that you can take in
    And see how it is done
    I’ll offer an opinion
    But it’s considered fact around here
    Reflect and then accept it
    And let it all come clear
    A dream is never real
    Unless you can feel
    What do you say?
    It’s all the same
    Same tune new name
    Not what, but who
    It’s up to you 

     You’ll always have a critic
    Always something to prove
    But don’t forget the screaming
    There’s not time to think it through
    The offer’s on the table
    And the burden’s on me
    So dig it and get with it
    Board game money should make you believe
    So attention to the masses
    Or at least the ones who cared
    I made my way to the top
    And no one even knew I was there
    I sold my soul for nothing
    And a free drink from this bar
    You better dig it and get with it
    Or you’ll never get too far

    Goodbye Is Mine

    GOODBYE IS MINE

    I wonder, What would you do
    If I told you I love you?
    I wonder what would you think?
    Or if you already knew
    Could you believe my words?
    Could you trust my eyes?
    Or is it just too soon
    To kiss the past goodbye?

    So tell me how the song goes
    Even though I’ve heard it a few times
    He’s got to go away
    But he’s such a great guy

    And I want to make you mine
    You know it’s right
    So just give me a sign
    Go and tell him goodbye
    O the goodbye is mine
    The goodbye is mine

    So tell me what would you do?
    Tell me what would you say?
    Would you take my hand?
    Would you just push it away?
    Where do you stand?
    You know I’d give all to take his place
    But there’ll be no one here
    To wipe a tear from my face

    I want to make you mine
    You know it’s right
    So give me a sign
    Go and tell him goodbye
    Or the goodbye is mine
    The goodbye is mine

    Stop wasting my time
    The goodbye is mine
    Stop wasting my time

    Only For Tonight

    ONLY FOR TONIGHT

    It starts with just an ordinary glance
    Friday night, something right with the world
    This sorta guy never gets that chance
    The timing’s right to invite a new girl
    A single moment, then it’s gone
    But my captain will make it all right
    I’ll wonder what I did wrong
    But only for tonight
    It starts again as she comes back in the place
    Good looks can kill and I’m beginning to fall
    Something ‘bout that look on her face
    Says she’ll take care of it all
    It doesn’t matter what I do
    No need to search for words this time
    The signs are right, I’ll follow through
    But only for tonight

    Only for tonight
    Tonight

    I start the day with the sun in my face
    The walk of shame, but there’s no one to blame
    I think to myself as I’m leaving her place
    Will I see her again, will she remember my name
    We don’t have to understand
    But that don’t make it right
    A one time fling or a one night stand
    But only for tonight

    Only for tonight
    Only for tonight
    Tonight
    Tonight
    Tonight

    It’s OK
    It’s all right
    We just might
    Only for tonight

    My Town

    MY TOWN

    Hey it’s great to see you
    Has it been that long
    You know you haven’t changed at all
    Hey what’s that your drinking
    Can I buy you one
    To get back to when we were young
    And we used to have so much fun 

    And here we are again
    Where everyone’s a friend
    It’s always getting late with us wishing that the night would never end
    To live for the weekend
    And try to comprehend
    What to do to the end 

    Look into the sky
    Where time stands still
    (Separate lives) Where good times don’t age
    The more that things change 

    Laugh just a little too much
    And I talk just a little too loud
    And we’ll drink just a little to much in my town
    And we’ll swear because we like to cuss
    And we’ll ask because we’re curious
    Raise your glass with us in my town 

    When life was one big party
    Now all work no play
    Ah, to reminisce about the good ole days
    You were sore when I stole your girlfriend
    Damn she was fine
    I was laughing till you took mine
    But damn she was fine

    And here we are again
    Where everyone’s a friend
    It’s always getting late with us wishing that the night would never end
    To live for the weekend
    And try to comprehend
    What to do to the end 

    Look into the sky
    Where time stands still
    (Separate lives) Where good times don’t age
    The more that things change 

    Laugh just a little too much
    And I talk just a little too loud
    And we’ll drink just a little to much in my town
    And we’ll swear because we like to cuss
    And we’ll ask because we’re curious
    Raise your glass with us in my town 

    Laugh just a little too much
    And I talk just a little too loud
    And we’ll drink just a little to much in my town
    And we’ll swear because we like to cuss
    And we’ll ask because we’re curious
    Raise your glass with us in my town 

    Laugh just a little too much
    And I talk just a little too loud
    And we’ll drink just a little to much in my town
    And we’ll swear because we like to cuss
    And we’ll ask because we’re curious
    Raise your glass with us in my town 

    Hey it’s great to see you
    Has it been that long
    You know you haven’t changed at all

    Words Get In The Way

     

    WORDS GET IN THE WAY

    Time and time again it never ends
    When you start as lovers you can’t be friends
    You’d think we’d know now how to right the wrongs
    My efforts fail to make you feel you belong
    We love, we fight, I’m wrong, you’re right
    I’m not outta my head
    We shout we cry, I don’t know why

    I know what you want me to say
    But my pride gets in the way
    No one wins the games we play
    All the words get in the way
    All the words get in the way

    Here it comes again my guilt filled friend
    Throwing threatening glances, it won’t work again
    It’s what I do, it’s what I say, it’s how I turn you away
    It’s all the things that I can’t claim
    We’re out of touch, it’s much to much
    So we tell lies instead
    Hell it was fun, I’ll find someone

    I know what you want me to say
    But my pride gets in the way
    No one wins the games we play
    All the words get in the way
    All the words get in the way

    We can’t erase mistakes we’ve made
    It’s in your eyes to walk away
    And my pride can’t make you stay
    I know what you want me to say
    But my pride gets in the way

    I know what you want me to say
    But my pride gets in the way
    No one wins the games we play
    All the words get in the way
    All the words get in the way

    Brand New

    BRAND NEW

    I was brand new
    We were two, unsuspecting
    I knew better than to mess with desire
    Knew I’d get burned if I played with the fire
    My mind and heart were torn
    Here comes the storm 

    I was brand new
    He was too
    The choice was in your hands
    Something came to me as I laid in my bed
    Maybe all that beer just went to my head
    I had to tell you something 

    Where’s the line between wrong and funny
    And is there anyone here that can tell me
    Flat out She didn’t call me ugly
    I don’t know if I can wait until it goes down
    Will you ever come around 

    Where’s the line between wrong and funny
    And is there anyone here that can tell me
    Flat out She didn’t call me ugly
    I don’t know if I can wait until it goes down
    Will you ever come around 

    Not so brand new
    Some how I knew
    You’d play me like a fool
    Still you came to me crying late in the night
    Cause you want me there, each time you get in a fight
    Come on and let me know 

    Where’s the line between wrong and funny
    And is there anyone here that can tell me
    Flat out She didn’t call me ugly
    Will it ever go down
    Where’s the line
    Flat out She didn’t call me ugly
    I don’t know if I can wait

    Number One

    NUMBER ONE

    I look to you for a memory
    My heart can feel, but my eyes can’t see
    That I never stack up, you’re never coming back, up in flames with reality
    I look to you for a memory
    You’re pro let go, but you just can’t make me
    But I got the knack just to make up for the lack, don’t you dare fuck up my fantasy 

    Went to the club, but you weren't there
    Closed that place down, but you don’t care
    Can’t, I just meet you for a drink
    I haven’t seen you for a week
    Can’t help but think this is fair
    Things aren't always as they seem
    It’s all in your head that I’m so mean
    Don’t you miss me when I’m gone
    Don’t you know that nothings wrong
    You don’t answer when I call, so I made up with your machine 

    I never made you cry
    I never lost my mind
    You got to get things done
    But your my number one 

    I look to you for a memory
    My heart can feel, but my eyes can’t see
    That I never stack up, you’re never coming back, up in flames with reality
    I look to you for a memory
    You’re pro let go, but you just can’t make me
    But I got the knack just to make up for the lack, don’t you dare fuck up my fantasy 

    Don’t think you meant all that you said
    It’s never over in my head
    And no one ever really means every drunk word that they scream in the bar or in the bed
    This whole damn thing is such a mess
    I’m not confused, I’m not obsessed
    It doesn’t matter what you say
    You cannot make me go away
    I’m going to see you every day
    And with my eyes you’ll be undressed
    Of all you had I was the best 

    I never made you cry
    I never lost my mind
    You got to get things done
    But your my number one 

    I never made you cry
    I never lost my mind
    You got to get things done
    But your my number one 

    I look to you for a memory
    My heart can feel, but my eyes can’t see
    That I never stack up, you’re never coming back, up in flames with reality
    I look to you for a memory
    You’re pro let go, but you just can’t make me
    But I got the knack just to make up for the lack, don’t you dare fuck up my fantasy
    I look to you for a memory

    WOMAN

    The kind of girl I’ve always dreamed of
    I want to make you mine
    Your blue green eyes and your short brown hair
    First time I saw you I just had to stare

    Be my woman
    Say you’ll stay
    Be my girl and it’ll be OK
    Be my woman

    Never felt like this before
    This funny feeling inside
    Just when I thought life was coming a bore
    You come along looking so fine

    Be my woman
    Say you’ll stay
    Be my girl and it’ll be OK
    Be my woman
    Say you’ll stay
    Be my girl and it’ll be OK

    Your wish is my command
    I’ll do anything for you
    Jump in a river
    Stand on my hands
    I’ll give you a love so true

    Be my woman
    Say you’ll stay
    Be my girl and it’ll be OK
    Be my woman

    I Don't Mind

    I DON’T MIND

    So you say it’s time to talk again
    We’ve been here before, revolving door
    Empty threats of going other ways
    Time to follow through, try something new
    No one likes beginnings of the ends
    Broken hearts to mend, splitting up our friends
    But if you ever want some lemon in your tea
    That’s just fine with me, emotion free
    But before you close that door
    Let it revolve once more

    I don’t mind if you want to have a good time
    If you want to find a new line to walk awhile
    I can’t find the words to tell you what I want to
    The lies that we can finally see through now

    So you say that things have gotten old
    Life’s too routine, need a change of scene
    Well it’s been a long time coming now
    And we both agree to disagree
    Pick up all my favorite traits again
    Like drinking with my friends till 3 am
    Return to a life that's less than clean
    Porno magazines, too much caffeine and nicotine
    But before you close that door
    Let it revolve once more

    I don’t mind if you want to have a good time
    If you want to find a new line to walk awhile
    I can’t find the words to tell you what I want to
    The lies that we can finally see through now

    I don’t mind if you want to have a good time
    If you want to find a new line to walk awhile
    I can’t find the words to tell you what I want to
    The lies that we can finally see through now

    Angels Don't Fall To Harm

    ANGELS DON’T FALL TO HARM

    What does a girl dream of when she’s lonely and can’t sleep at night
    When she holds her pillow just a bit closer
    Would she want me to hold her tight
    Why did I keep you down to Earth when Heaven is where you belong
    Can I still make your dreams come true even though I was so wrong

    Do you know you’re special
    You made strong man fall in love
    And do you know you’re beautiful
    Heaven’s not just above
    Sweet angel, I want you close
    Maybe you can fall into my arms
    Just close your eyes, don’t be afraid
    Angels don’t fall to harm

    So where do you hide your wings
    Have you ever tried to fly
    Or looked up to the stars and tried to touch the sky
    What do you dream of girl
    Do you pray I’ll cherish you
    If dreams can come true then prayers can too

    Do you know you’re special
    You made strong man fall in love
    And do you know you’re beautiful
    Heaven’s not just above
    Sweet angel, I want you close
    Maybe you can fall into my arms
    Just close your eyes, don’t be afraid
    Angels don’t fall to harm

    What does a boy dream of when he’s lonely and can’t sleep at night
    A shameful tear falls on his pillow
    Wishing you were there by his side
    By his side

    Do you know you’re special
    You made strong man fall in love
    And do you know you’re beautiful
    Heaven’s not just above
    Sweet angel, I want you close
    Maybe you can fall into my arms
    Just close your eyes, don’t be afraid
    Angels don’t fall to harm

    Bo-Body (Klickity Klow)

    BO-BODY (KLICKITY KLOW)

    So she’s standing at the corner of the bar you know
    Waiting for that willing one to show
    And she’s something
    She laughs out loud and twirls her hair
    Pants so tight no sign of underwear
    I feel overwhelmed and helpless to her charm
    And I can’t help but think she’ll let this go too far

    I don’t know, but to look so fine could be a crime
    And she’s not innocent
    Truth be told, she come out of that neon light
    Her one eyebrow don’t look quite right

    I look away, I look again
    Rub my eyes and then I shake my head
    Something happens when the lights turn on
    Bo-body klickity klow is gone

    There’s no way I can pretend
    Try my very best not to offend
    Something happens when the light turns on
    Bo-body klickity klow is gone

    So she’s standing at the bar just like the time before
    Looking so the dudes just can’t ignore
    She’s still something
    She flicks them off like dirty flies
    But in the light you know they wouldn’t even try
    I know at time she may look like a chimpanzee
    But I guess this drink might make the willing one be me

    I don’t know, but to look so fine could be a crime
    And she’s not innocent
    Truth be told, she come out of that neon light
    Her eyes are crossed, she’s not too bright
    Her snaggeld tooth’s got one mean bite
    God struck her ugly just for spite

    I look away, I look again
    Rub my eyes and then I shake my head
    Something happens when the lights turn on
    Bo-body klickity klow is gone

    Bo-body left without a trace
    Is that a beard that’s growing on her face
    Something happens when the lights turn on
    Bo-body klickity klow is gone
    Bo-body klickity klow is gone

    Catchy Song

    CATCHY SONG

    It’s a catchy song for the radio
    You have to hum along cause nothing rhymes with radio
    It only has four chords and they’re munataness
    But I can make them rhyme with hippopotamus
    Check out the lyric book and then you’ll read along
    And then you’ll know the words and then you’ll sing this song
    It’s got a catchy riff and I don’t have to cuss
    ‘Cause I’m not Eminem
    Now here come the chorus

    It’s a skater song for the punk rock girl
    Her hair was blond and long and davoid of curls
    She had a heart tattoo right above her ass
    Her parents saw the Who and smoked a lot of grass
    It’s a catchy song, it’s made for me and you
    It’s like Sum 41 or Blink 182
    You bet we live the life and we don’t ride the bus
    ‘Cause we just skate along
    Now here comes the chorus

    Now I’m on radio and you can hear my song
    In the shower stall and all through the mall
    You better sit back down and have another beer
    And take a look around, ‘cause it will all come clear
    It’s a catchy song for the radio
    You have to hum along cause nothing rhymes with radio
    It’s time to jump around and sing along with us
    Forget about your life
    Here comes the chorus

    Take It Away

    TAKE IT AWAY

    I’m all you’ve ever wanted
    It’s all I’ve always needed
    Choosing is something I never could do
    Look at the mess we’ve gotten into

    You’ve never felt something so strong
    Wish I could tell you why it’s so wrong
    Hurting is something I never could do
    So you…

    Take it away
    You know how much this means
    You know how much I think you should stay

    When a mind’s made up, it’s hard to change
    When you’re stuck in a rut, it’s not hard to complain
    Copeing is something you never would do
    So you…
    Take it away
    You know how much this means
    You know how much I think you should stay
    It once was all I had
    At once…
    You take it Away

    I’m all you’ve ever wanted
    And it’s all you’ve always hated
    Leaving is something I never could do
    How could you…

    Way
    How could you
    You know how much this means
    You know how much I think you should stay
    It once was all I had
    At once…

    You take it Away
    How could you
    It once was all I had
    It once…
    You take it away
    You take it Away

    Wanna Be

    WANNA BE

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree
    I wanna be like a fish
    Have the freedom of the sea
    But walking on two feet
    That’s where you will find me

    Up in the morning and I take a stand
    All is going just the way I planned
    The boys the girls the kids in agony
    Tell them freedom is my remedy
    Retribution, no solution
    We’re all apart of the institution
    A recession no digression
    It’s an obsession

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree
    I wanna be like a fish
    Have the freedom of the sea
    But walking on two feet
    That’s where you will find me

    Stampede of greed
    Can’t you see that’s the last thing we need
    You see our hate is our fate
    It’s what we anticipate
    Get the rhythm and the rhyme
    Wouldn’t it be nice to have a good time
    You’ll benefit from getting with it
    Just for a minute

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree
    I wanna be like a fish
    Have the freedom of the sea
    But walking on two feet
    That’s where you will find me

    I wanna be like superman
    I wanna be a chimpanzee
    I could fly all over the land
    Or be swinging from a tree

    This Highway

    THIS HIGHWAY

    Look into my eyes, tell me how far can you see
    Can you see the dream, is it coming true, or is it just a fantasy
    Look at me and stare, I never quite knew why you cared
    I never quite knew why you

    You mock my want for infamy
    Though I kinda liked the jealousy
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And from that I will not stray
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway

    Look into my eyes, tell me can you see what I see
    A definition and a vision of a hero lies in me
    You look at me so cold, not everything you touch is gold
    Not everything is gold you

    You mock my want for infamy
    Though I kinda liked the jealousy
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And from that I will not stray
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And it’s all I know to do
    It’s all I know to do

    You mock my want for infamy
    Though I kinda liked the jealousy
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And from that I will not stray
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway
    And I wish I could say I’d missed you (I bet you say the same too)
    It’s like I’ve memorized this highway

    Look into my eyes
    I just want to wish you well, wish you well, wish you well, in your hell
    Look into my…

    Jungle Beat

    JUNGLE BEAT

    You know to be alone has a negative implication
    Is it alone by choice or a fear of being shunned
    Can a fear of being lonely really be a fear of failure
    And can this fear become a fearful nature
    These insecurities have got me walking on my knees
    I know exactly what I please, but my mind is ill at ease
    It’s not easy for me to lay my hopes and feelings down on the line
    But the price of failure weighs heavy of my mind

    I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
    When the outside world turns up the heat
    When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
    When the problems just seem to be outta hand
    I get the music out and it’s swinging about
    And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
    I can’t be down or even wear a frown
    ‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

    My problems may not leave me
    But the beat has lifted me inside
    My soul has begun to smile
    Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while

    The microscope that we aim at ourselves
    Is amazingly powerful in the depths that it delves
    My new flaws in our self conception
    Are seen as giant cracks by our inspection
    Now these flaws they’re traits of every man and woman
    They make us what we are, but they keep up from being open
    Nobody wants to see those flaws exposed
    But the fact of the matter is son that’s a door we can’t keep closed

    I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
    When the outside world turns up the heat
    When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
    When the problems just seem to be outta hand
    I get the music out and it’s swinging about
    And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
    I can’t be down or even wear a frown
    ‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

    My problems may not leave me
    But the beat has lifted me inside
    My soul has begun to smile
    Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while

    I got that jungle beat and that’s what I need
    When the outside world turns up the heat
    When I’m feeling sad and I’m feeling mad
    When the problems just seem to be outta hand
    I get the music out and it’s swinging about
    And the spirit turns within me and I wanna shout
    I can’t be down or even wear a frown
    ‘Cause the music grabs a hold and picks me up from the ground

    My problems may not leave me
    But the beat has lifted me inside
    My soul has begun to smile
    Now I think I’ll be O.K. for a while
    (Repeat)

    Better Way

    BETTER WAY

    I wouldn’t call this a love song
    I didn’t write it ‘cause I did something wrong
    Just a better way to show you how I feel
    Just a better way to show you I’m for real

    You never treated me good, but you never treated me bad
    Thought I knew where we stood, all it took to make you mad
    You asked me to leave then you wanted me to stay
    Better make up your mind either way

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    I wouldn’t call this a love song
    I didn’t write it ‘cause I did something wrong
    Just a better way to show you how I feel
    Just a better way to show you I’m for real

    You really liked me, I was so in love with you
    But I never acted my age, or be who you wanted me to
    So you say you’re through with trying, it’s time to turn the page
    Never gonna leave me crying, so why don’t you stay

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    I wouldn’t call this a love song
    I didn’t write it ‘cause I did something wrong
    Just a better way to show you how I feel
    Just a better way to show you I’m for real

    I never acted my age and I never wore the right clothes
    Well at least I didn’t have an earring in my nose

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)
    I still love you (I still love you)

    Why Me

    WHY ME

    I woke up on the wrong side of the bed
    It’s days like these my mama said I would dread
    Like to get nice and clean, but all the hot water is gone
    God dam have to shower with a bottle of cheep cologne
    Late for a very important date again
    Speed up leave a cloud of dust at least the engine isn’t dead
    Up ahead every light I see turns from green to yellow to red
    Every block that I stop I bang the steering wheel with my head

    Tell me why, everything’s a formality
    Tell me why, we always disagree
    Tell me why, I wallow in my own pity
    Could happen to anyone in this city
    Why me

    Another day another dime another sign another dollar that I spend
    Another time another rhyme another opinion to defend
    Boss man got me twenty things to do
    Not in a state to concentrate with this dog crap on my shoe
    Don’t you lie, don’t you patronize, you say you’ve been here before
    Ain’t life just a grand slam when it’s kicking your posterior
    Say man look at the bright side the days not over yet
    Things can’t get any worse I say wanna bet

    Tell me why, everything’s a formality
    Tell me why, we always disagree
    Tell me why, I wallow in my own pity
    Could happen to anyone in this city
    Why me

    Tell me why, everything’s a formality
    Tell me why, we always disagree
    Tell me why, I waddle in my own pity
    Could happen to anyone in this city

    Tell me why, my song is so shitty
    Tell me why, I suck at Jeopardy
    Tell me why, you’re looking so pretty
    Tell me why, I can’t be too sexy
    Why me

    Pittsburgh

    PITTSBURGH

    You flew in from Pittsburgh just the other day
    So much on your mind so little to say
    I asked all the questions and waited for the answers
    But your only reply was a tear from your eye

    You flew in from Pittsburgh just the other day
    Left your man back East with your love all frayed
    Now you’re searching for the comfort of old homes bed
    When you should be seeking the comfort of a long lost friend

    And I said, when you find what love is for
    I’ll be right inside my door
    When you leave your prince’s kingdom
    I hope you come knocking

    You flew back to Pittsburgh just the other day
    With your eyes all dry, nothing left to say
    I’m left here again with my heart in my hands
    With all love ails cured, still part of me is sad

    And I said, when you find what love is for
    I’ll be right inside my door
    When you leave your prince’s kingdom
    I hope you come knocking
