It's All In His Head

He lives in your ‘hood
He’s right up the street
And he’s sweet and he’s kind
With a curious mind
And he smiles when you meet
He never leaves the house on Sunday
You gotta get him on a Monday
(Chorus)
It’s hard to believe
But believe it they said
It’s hard to believe
That it’s all in his, all in his
All in his head.

What does he do?
What does he think?
Magic markers and maps
By his kitchen sink
And what does he wear?
We’re looking for clues
Yea, we’ll be going through his books
And phone tonight
‘Cause all of this will land on the news
He’s on the telephone on Sunday
He’s being televised on Monday
(Chorus)

Writing a symphony on Sunday
A manifesto on a Monday
(Chorus)

About Me

What’s that silly little song
I’m hearing on the radio?
That’s the song he used to sing to him
And that was oh so long ago
And you’re still thinkin’ ‘bout him
And I’m still thinkin’ ‘bout you and me
Why can’t you see that it’s really gotta be about me
Why can’t you always see that it’s always gotta be about me.

What’s that creepy little song
You’re tagging on Pandora’s box?
I can see that you’re still into him
You kept his pictures and argyle socks
And you’re still thinkin’ ‘bout him
And I’m here thinkin’ ‘bout you and me
Why can’t you see that it’s really gotta be about me
Why can’t you blindly see that it’s always gotta be about me.

About me
Not him
Yea, he’s a nice guy
Nice guys finish last
And I was built to win.

About me
Not him
Yea he’s a nice guy
Baby, that’s a fact
But it’s time to tell him, “Bye, bye”
And I need to know that he won’t be back
‘Cus he don’t know Jack.

What’s that silly little song
I’m hearing on the radio?
That’s the song he used to sing to him
And that was oh so long ago.
And you’re still think’ ‘bout him
And I’m still thinkin’ ‘bout me, me, me
Why can’t you see that it’s always gotta be about me
Why can’t you finally see
That it’s always gotta be about,
Can we agree about,
It’s always gotta be about me.

Save Yourself

Every night I lie awake
And think of you here with me
It’s something that I’ll never know
‘Cus you save yourself, save yourself
For someone else
Not for me.

Gone would be the lonely nights
And everyday just like a dream
Imagine love eternally
But you save yourself, save yourself
For someone else
Not for me.

(Chorus)
Life could be easy
With you living here right with me
How we gonna ever know
If you save yourself, save yourself
For someone else
Why not me?
Life could be easy
And everything that it could be
How we gonna ever know
If you save yourself, save yourself
For someone else
Why not me?

Babe if I could have the chance
I’d treat you like no other can
It’s something that you’ll never know
‘Cus you save yourself, save yourself
For someone else
Hey! Why not me?
(Chorus)

Every night I lie awake
And think of you here with me
It’s something that I’ll never know
‘Cus you save yourself, save yourself
For someone else
Not for me.

99 Miles feat. Blue Lou Marini

I met you long ago
You were my Once Upon a Time
We fell in love
We were never apart
When you first came in sight
I fell in love with all your lights
Head over heels
And under your spell
I love you now
As I loved you then
I want you back here with me
In my life!

(Chorus)
99 miles
So far away
I know that someday we’ll be together, together
We’re in two different worlds
Planets apart
Still, you’re here in my heart
Here in my dreams
But you’re 99 miles away.

Life had a different plan
One that I still don’t understand
Leaving that island
Of sweet memories
I dream of my life with you
Nothing has ever been the same
I hear your voice
And you’re calling my name
I miss you most
At the end of the day
I want you back here
In my life
(Chorus)

Like distant stars
Shining in my eyes
I see all that we were
And this love
That just never dies.

I miss you still
After all of these years
Time to get back
Here with me in my life.
(Chorus)

Good Day Jupiter

Good day Jupiter
How are you today?
Good day Jupiter
I have a lot to say
Good day Jupiter
I had a nightmare last night
We were calling out for help
But, not one soul in sight.

Save the planet now
Save our world somehow
(And so it is!)
Show us what to do
Before another day is through
(And so it is!)

Good day Jupiter
We’ve got to talk to someone
Got a culture of violence
Where everybody’s got a gun.

We look to the heavens for a sign
That we will be alright
A modern miracle would be fine
Something spectacular
Something amazing!

Dear God, we’re at The Gate
There’s missiles pointed to the sky
Dear God, no this can’t wait
How many people have to die?

Save the planet now
Save our world somehow
(And so it is!)
Show us what to do
Before another day is through
(And so it is!)
We’re spinning in circles
We’re spinning our wheels
Like fools.

Good day Jupiter
How are you today?
Good day Jupiter
I’ve got a lot to say
You’re out there turning around
And the time is getting late
Good day Jupiter
We’ve got a lot on our plate.

We Love Who We Love

Remember when the men from Rome
Told us the world was flat
We should never sail too far from home
Well, we know what happened to that
You know, we only got this far
Denying what they said we are
See the changes everywhere
Here comes a brand new day

(Chorus)
Well, we love who we love
We love who we love
Everybody loves who they love
What a revelation!
Well, we are who we love
It comes from above
Everybody loves who they love
It’s a celebration now!

Yea, there was a time when they said
Man could never fly
Though his feet were planted on the ground
His eyes stayed on the sky
But when he landed on the moon
They all sang a different tune
When you believe
You make the change
Here comes a brand new world!

Well, we love who we love
We love who we love
Everybody loves who they love
What a revelation!
Well, we are who we love
It comes from above
Everybody loves who they love
What a celebration now!

Well, we love who we love
We love who we love
Everybody loves who they love
What a declaration!
We shine in the sun
So far we have come
No more need to hide who we are
No more Rebel-Nation
We are who we love
It comes from above
Everybody loves who they love
What an inspiration!
We are who we love
So love who you love
Everybody loves who they love
Join the celebration
Now!

I Sat On A Bench

I sat on a bench
Looking at the moon last night
Not thinking about anything at all
My mind was just a blank
I sat on a bench
Looking at the stars last night
Not thinking about anything at all
But feeling everything
I decided I would smile
Made my mind up to be happy
I thought about my life
How every storm that came my way
Broke into a brighter day
Not a first
But looking back.

I sat on a bus
With forty stories
Just like mine
And no one had to say
One single word.

I decided I would smile
Made my mind up to be happy
I thought about my life
How every storm that came my way
Broke into a brighter day
Not a first
But looking back.

I sat on a cloud
Looking at the world last night
Not thinking about anything at all
But feeling everything
And I felt a kind of peace
And I felt a kind of peace.

I Like You Better

I like the way you work all through the day
So in control
But then it’s time to loosen up
When the work is all done
You’re looking for fun
I like the way you turn into
A Jekyll and Hyde
We’re breaking all the rules tonight
You can take me to Hell
You know, I won’t tell
Nobody I know can stop you
Nobody I know can top you
Let me see the lightning behind your eyes.

(Chorus)
I like you better
I like you better
I like you better
When you get down and freaky.

You don’t have to hit the town
To have a good time
Something in your DNA
Drives me insane
Again and again
Well, let’s go down in Buenos Aires
Chandeliers and chocolate cherries
I’m gonna find the fire engines in your eyes.
(Chorus)

Nobody I know can stop you
Nobody I know can top you
Let me see the lightening behind your eyes
I like you better
I like you better
I like you better
When you get down and freaky.

Livin' Like A Rock Star feat. Blue Lou Marini

You’re living large
Playing to win
While the rest of the world
Is dying to get in
You’re living like a rock star.

You’re spending money
Hand over fist
Put another check mark
On your bucket list
You’re living like a rock star.

You’ve got girls on your arms
Boys by the pool
All your Facebook friends
Think you’re so damn cool
There’s a fireworks display
By Cirque du Soleil
Tonight on your yacht
It’s gonna get hot!
You’re living like a rock star.

Let’s go shopping in Paris
We’ll run away to Rome
Borrow Elton’s private plane
To fly us home
You’re living like a rock star.

You’re buying up cars
Like they’re going out of style
Don’t it feel good
Acting like a juvenile?
You’re living like a rock star.

You can make a movie
‘Cus baby you da man
You have breakdowns when you want to
Just because you can
You can feed the poor
From your next world tour
With all that you’ve got
It’s gonna get hot!
You’re living like a rock star!

There’s a party tonight
And you’re feeling alright
You’ve got your entourage
But you’re living at home
In your momma’s garage.

You’re having so much fun
But you’ve been driven insane
I hope that you’ve liked
Your fifteen minutes of fame
You’re living like a rock star.

It Goes On

And I’m sitting at a café at the upper west side
Drinking coffee now I’m heading to the “Y” for a swim

I went shopping like I’m dying this September
I’m looking to buy a pair of Ray Bans that I lost on the bus

Today my bus got in at four and then I hustled a taxi away from a tourist
Then went straight to a massage

With those nice Chinese masseurs because my back is in pain
And it’s the best relief for under fifty dollars

Then I ate dinner at a diner that’s been open for years
They have the best turkey burgers with coleslaw on top

In my corner window seat I’m people watching for hours
Like a hungry boa constrictor – la-ti-da

I saw Peter Pan at Ellis Tulley Hall all alone
It’s a breezy summer night and I believe it’s gonna rain

That Guitar Man’s playing Lennon and his tip jar is full
Maybe I’ll grab some free passes to a movie or go home

Robert Frost, he said it best
When he summed up about life –
“It goes on”.

This

This is how I met you
Oh so long ago
Tell me was there moonlight
That’s what I remember.

This is where we started
On that nameless night
Memories and silhouettes
Some things that you can’t forget
Then it went something like this

This is how I held you
Your heart next to mine
My arms around you gently
Like wings around an angel

This is when I first knew
A love that felt so pure
A lullaby called Destiny
How you smiled and looked at me
And it went something like this

This is how I always thought that love would be
Like something from a story book
And spilling off the page
Tell me this is real and not some fantasy
And how tomorrow, and forever
Could be started with a kiss that went like this.

This is where I whisper
I’ve loved you more each day
Close your eyes and dream with me
It seems like only yesterday
When it started with a kiss
And it went something like
And it went something like
And it went something like
This.

What Next?

What Next?
Blink your eyes and everything changes
And life gets shuffled to another day
Blink your eyes and life rearranges
The cards in your hands you’ve been dealt to play.
Blink your eyes and everything changes
And life gets shuffled to another day
The phone rings, the Voice keeps talking
I just hang up and walk away
This time, for good
It’s bad yet looking better
No more, no less
It’s all one crazy mess
So wake me up when it’s all over
Ah – what next?
Blink your eyes and everything changes
And life gets shuffled to another day
Look around and what you see
Are magic tricks all in disarray
I could laugh, I could cry
I could freeze letting time go by
I could scream, I could shout
One more headline and I’m heading out
So, wake me up when it’s all over
Ah – what next?
Life comes, life goes
A broken heart, a broken nose
I’m a dancer on my bloody toes
And on and on and on it goes
So, wake me up when it’s all over
Ah – what next?
What next, I wonder?
Is this some spell I’m under?
Am I floating out here all alone?
It’s one big mystery
With no directions for me
I’ll find the answers on my own
My heart will always lead me home.
Blink your eyes and everything changes
And life gets shuffled to another day.

Broken

Here we sit in a room with the lights low
Candles throwing shadows on the wall
Tell me your story and I will tell you mine
To let your secrets kill you would be such a senseless crime
You feel anxious and you feel lonely
You’ve been battered and slightly used
You’ve seen all your dreams stepped on and bruised
You’re a little mixed up and a lot confused
You had a crappy childhood, but that’s yesterday’s news.
Aren’t we all a little broken
Aren’t we all a little ripped and torn
Aren’t we all a little broken
I am just like you – a little broken too
You’re a housewife doing yoga stoned on Xanex
You’re a college grad – degree, low self esteem
You’re a married dad, why you hangin’ round that steam room
You’re a fireman, burned out, racing to a heart attack
You’re a doctor, plastered, drinking to obscure the crack
You’re a playwright, you’ve run short of new ideas
You’re a television anchor who’s grown long in the tooth
You’re a washed up actor, you’re a faded rock star
One day it’s limousines, three piece suits, nothing but the best
Today you wear a bracelet on your ankle / you’re under house arrest
Aren’t we all a little broken
Aren’t we all a little chopped and diced
Aren’t we all a little broken
I am just like you – a little broken too
(solo, bridge)
Anybody out there waiting in the wings?
We could use some angels with some tape and string.
Here we sit in a room full of strangers
Funny how we’re so much the same
I look at you, I’m looking in a mirror
We hold each other’s hands praying for some hope
Dear God, we’re all drowning, could throw us down a little rope?
Aren’t we all a little broken
Aren’t we all a little frazzled my friends
Aren’t we all a little broken
I am just like you – a little broken too
Aren’t we all a little broken
Aren’t we all a little worn and wasted
Aren’t we all a cut and pasted
No you’re not alone, everybody’s safe at home
I have nothing to say on the phone
But I like it when you’re there at home
So be a dear and lend an ear
And hear my silent poem.

My Secret Friend

I’m a bit of a smooth crocodile
As I sit with my teeth in my smile
I mean no harm, I’m hear to charm
Just listen for a while.
One day the world will end
But you will always be my secret friend.
We’ll be together and forever and
You’ll be my secret friend.
You may wonder if we’ll ever meet
Will you run into me on the street?
Well here’s some tips
Please lock those lips
It’s best we be discreet.
‘Cus you like when I call on the phone
It’s the mystery of the unknown
You’ve made your choice, my velvet voice
Will speak my silent poem
One day the world will end
But you will always be my secret friend
We’ll be together and forever and
You’ll be my secret friend.
Tick, tock, sitting by the clock
Pour another cup of tea
Wait another day for me.
(Yeah, I know how you feel baby
Tell me more, tell me more)
So be a dear and lend an ear
And here my silent poem.
One day the world will end
But you will always be my secret friend
We’ll be together and forever and
You’ll be my secret friend
They’ll come a time when love’s the only single real thing we can send.
You’ll always be my secret friend.

I Love You (But You're In My Way)

Call me selfish, call me smart
Gotta take better care of my heart
It can’t be broken one more time, it’s clear
I can’t fix us both alone
I’ve got issues of my own
I can’t co-star in this movie with you, my dear
Step aside, things are getting blurry
Not to mention, oh, I’m in a hurry
I love you, love you, love you
There’s really nothing left to say
Love you, love you, love you…
I love you, but you’re in my way.
I’m afraid we’re wasting time
I’m throwing dollars after dimes
I’ve been trying to change your leopard spots- and that was wrong
No more lies – ifs – ands – or buts
You’re sweet as candy but mostly nuts
We’ve been playing in this, not- very -amusement park far too long
Step aside things are getting fuzzy
I’m moving on so fast you’re gonna ask yourself “Who was he?”
I love you, love you, love you
I think I need a holiday – away
I love you, but you’re in my way.
Love! Power! Money!
Juggling all these balls in the air
It’s far from easy
And far from funny
(repeat)
Call me selfish, call me smart
I gotta take better care of my heart
It can’t be broken
I love my serenity
Step aside, things are getting blurry
I’ve got to be protective
[Hope this voodoo doll’s effective] I love you, love you, love you
There’s really nothing left to say
Love you, love you, love you…
I love you, but you’re in my way.

Second Chance

Oh, I guess I got a second chance
To give my whole life another shot
I guess I got a second chance
To really know Love as Love can be
Do I see windows and doors
Where I used to see walls
Coming down with a crash?
Could this be hushed violins in my head?
The sweet smell of lavender everywhere!
My heart starts to beat and I fell so completely alive!
Oo-I got a second chance
Yea-I got second chance.
I guess I got a second chance
To taste all that Love can be
Looks like I got a second chance
To see with the eyes of a child
With you, Life feels exciting and so full of Hope
And new possibilities
I want to walk down a path hand in hand
Free from my shadows and fears
Let me dream in your arms
Let me feel so completely alive!
Ooh-I got a second chance
Yea-I got a second chance
Oh! Yea! – I got a second chance!
Lying awake after midnight
Across my piano, and I’m naked
Talking to You with heart and my soul
Oh God, I think I’m gonna make it!
Oh I guess I got a second chance
To give my whole life another shot
I guess I got a second chance
To really know Love as Love can be
Here today and tomorrow with you
Maybe I won’t die alone after all
I want to drown in your ocean again and again
Where Spirit and Flesh become mystically One
I feel so completely alive!
Ooh-I got a second chance!
Ooh! Yea!- I got a second chance!
One more day, one more night, one more life, one more dance!
Yea!- I got a second chance!

Turnaround

I had all my plans made
I knew exactly what the future had in store
Grow old with some good books
And live my life alone.
Then I saw her in a bookstore
At the café with a frapaccino
I was hanging out in new releases
Near the door that said “Lost and Found”
I saw her checking out the new Bestsellers List
And then I saw her turn around
She took the escalator
So I decided I would follow her upstairs
We journeyed into Travel
Swept up on an odessy
Caught her eye in Science Fiction
Thought I saw her wink!
And then, a smile!
As I followed her through Sports and Fitness
I could feel my heart start to pound
Then right between Mystery and Drama,
She vanished as I turned around!
Guess I’m guilty of some dreaming
Of romancing my hallucinations
A little Magical Thinking
And my fantasies get real.
Was she a muse sent to find me?
A figment of imagination?
None of this is accidental
All of this is so profound
Nothing is coincidendtal
Love has got me in a Turnaround!
[Am I the only one that’s reading too much into this?] None of this is accidental
All of this is so profound
We could blame it all on Mr. Shakespeare
For knocking me to the ground
We could blame it on the Bosa Nova
Love has got me in a Turnaround.

My Friend

You and I
Were closer than close
And it seems like a long time ago.
I’d like to see you again
My Friend.
You and I
Were like words and music
To a song that was sent from above
I’d like to see you again
My friend.
I can’t be sure
Where we went wrong
‘Cus it reads like a muddled up dream
We were wearing away at the seams
Looking for threads of gold
And hands to hold us
Well, I could find
Some peace of mind
If I knew this was all a mistake
I don’t know how much more I can take.
I can’t be sure
Where we went wrong
‘Cus it reads like a muddled up dream
We were wasting away, and it seems
Writing two different songs
For far too long.
Well I could find
Some peace of mind
If I knew that you were at peace.
Oh, I’d like to see you again
My friend
Oh, I’d like to see you again
My friend
Oh, I’d love to see you again
My friend.

Ants At My Picnic

I remember a time
And maybe you do too
There was sunshine in our eyes
And our hearts were always true
Remember the days
We’d lie out on the sand
Our blankets near the water
And I would hold your hand
There was a time
When the skies were always blue
I would take you for a ride
On my big canoe
There was a time
When every day was summer
And then we got “growed up”
And that was such a bummer
Here they come… one by one…
Morning, noon and night
Here they come… two by two…
All over my life
(Chorus)
Now I got ants at my picnic
Ants at my picnic
Ants comin’ at me on a beautiful day
Ants all around me
All up and down me
Somebody help me to chase them all away
I got ants in my thinkin’,
Everywhere, it seems
Got them in my nightmares
Even in my dreams
Ants in my future,
Ants in my past
They’re in my Here and Now,
And more are coming fast
When the ants are marching at you
Two hundred by two
When they’re crawling up your legs
I’ll tell you what to do
You can call your “Jack of Hearts”
I’ll be your Prince of Charms
I’ll hold you in my lap
And I will wrap you in my arms
Here they come… one by one…
Morning, noon and night
Here they come… two by two…
All over my life
(Chorus)
Now I got ants at my picnic
Ants at my picnic
Ants comin’ at me on a beautiful day
Ants all around me
All up and down me
Somebody help me to chase them all away
I got ants in my sneakers
Ants in my food
They’re tryin’ to mess with me
And I’m not in the mood
Ants at my picnic
What can I say?
I need an anteater
To chase them all away
I had a vision life would be
All full of butterflies
Nobody told me

I would see clouds in my skies
Here they come… one by one…
Morning, noon and night
Here they come… two by two…
All over my life
(Chorus)
Now I got ants at my picnic
Ants at my picnic
Ants comin’ at me on a beautiful day
Ants all around me
All up and down me
Somebody help me to chase them all away
I got ants in my sneakers
Ants in my food
They’re tryin’ to mess with me
And I’m not in the mood
Ants at my picnic
What can I say?
I need an anteater
To chase them all away
I need your help, baby
To chase them all away
Oh, baby you can chase them away
Chase the ants away
Let’s chase the ants away
Chase them all away

Picking Up October

You’re sitting in your bedroom
In your underwear
You grab the phone to call me
‘Cause you know I’m always there
I can see your future
When I read your cards
‘Cause I’m your psychic neighbor
I can see that your life’s been very hard
I can see it in the constellations
The stars are lining up
And it looks… like…
Everything is gonna be alright
(Chorus)
And I’m picking up October
When all your troubles are gonna be
All over
And I’m picking up October
All your troubles are gonna be
All over
This time.

Life was pure insanity
November through May
Summer in Connecticut
But it was no holiday
Washing dishes on the Main Line
You have no room to boast
Now here comes September
And you’re haunted by memories
Of ashes and ghosts

I can see it in the constellations
The stars are lining up
And it looks… like…
Everything is gonna be alright
(Chorus)
And I’m picking up October
When all your troubles are gonna be
All over
And I’m picking up October
All your troubles are gonna be
All over
This time.

Do you really need
Someone like me to tell you?
Do you really need
A guide
Hey, come on look inside,

You’re sitting in your bedroom
All alone in your dreams
Afraid to take that first step
And everything it means…
You’ve got my number
You’ve got nothing to lose
Well, baby, you can call me
‘Cuz baby, I’ve got good news!
And I’m picking up October
When all your troubles are gonna be
All over
And I’m picking up October
All your troubles are gonna be
All over
This time.

Lucy Jude and Ann

Lucy Jude and Ann
My three best friends
They’re always with me
Wherever I am.
And when I’m alone
They take me by the hands
And make a circle ‘round my bed
Make a circle in my head.
Lucy Jude and Ann
My Three best friends
They’re always with me
Wherever I am.
And when I’m afraid
They take me by the hands
And make a circle ‘round my bed
Make a circle in my head.

My Three best friends

My Three best friends.

Positively Fine

I think too much
I think I’m falling in and out of touch
Again, today
I slip, I fall,
I wish I had a magic crystal ball
That showed the way
And I’m not exactly sure
Why I feel that I keep running
Round in circles, into walls, and out of time
But I’m positively sure
I’ll be positively fine.
Not great, but fine.

I think too hard
I think I’ll ride the swing in my backyard
And fly away…
I twist, I turn
You’d think by now
I finally would have learned,
It’s day by day.
And I’m not exactly sure
Why I worry I’m becoming
Just a dreamer, fast asleep
And left behind…
But I’m positively sure,
I’ll be positively fine
Not great,
But fine.

I’m afraid of change,
I’m obsessed with doubt
You would think I’m strange
If you knew what I was stressed about…
Nothing stays the same
And all this too shall pass…
Sometimes I feel so insane
Like I just stepped through the Looking Glass
I move, I breathe,
I’m learning to believe
That everything works out in time
And, I’m positively sure
I’ll be positively fine…
Not great,
But I’ll be grateful
With just fine.

Send Me

Love, send me
Send me anywhere
Show the way
Know that I’ll be there
Do I — ease the weary pain?
Do I — give some hope again?
Ah, Love,
Send me on my way…
Love, send me
Running to a cry
Take my hands
Let me know the reason why
Do I— sit with them and weep?
Do I— rock them into sleep?
Ah, Love,
Send me on my way…

There is a reason why
People need such help
We hear them calling every day
They need some love and time
We all need some help
Little lights along the way
Love, send me
To the broken heart
Call my name
I’ll find you in the dark
Oh, love,
Send me on my way
Oh, love,
Send me on my way
Oh, love,
Send me on my way…

Welcome to the Best Night

Well I feel jazzy
I feel smooth
Some people say I got an attitude
I’m just a bit of a brat
Hey! There ain’t enough ways to skin this cat!
But you can step into my light
Welcome to the best night of my life!

I got something you won’t believe
Got a couple a tricks up my sleeve
Ask me how I feel
Like steamin’ up the room
To watch the wallpaper peel
Everything’s all right
Welcome to the best night of my life!

Hey, baby, can you read my mind?
Do I see fireworks on the borderline?
C’mon baby, kiss my lips
I got a grand piano at my fingertips.

We’ll have drinks after dark
We’ll gab, gab, gab, gab
Let’s get naughty in the back of a cab
I’ll propose and give you a ring
And then we’ll tell our story on Larry King
Everything’s all right
Welcome to the best night of my life!

Hey, baby, can you read my mind?
Do you see fireworks in my Calvin Kleins?
C’mon, baby, kiss my lips
I gotta grand piano at my finger tips.

Hey, baby, how’d ya feel
About a pepperoni pizza on a Ferris wheel?
Go on and do the math
One plus one is two-night in a bubble bath
Better hold on tight
Welcome to the best night of my life!

I Was Busy

I missed so many celebrations
I missed college graduation
I missed sex education
I was busy
I was busy

I missed so many bloody airplanes
I missed so many things I can’t explain
I missed yesterday’s hurricane
I was busy falling in love with you.

(Chorus)
I was busy
I was busy
I was busy
I was busy falling in love with you.

I missed silver anniversaries
I missed golden opportunities
Hell, I missed most of the Seventies
I was busy
I was busy

I missed those California sunsets
I missed that trip to Prague & Budapest
Well, I missed so many nights of good rest
I was busy falling in love with you.

(Chorus)
I was busy (yea-yea)
I was busy (yea-yea)
I was busy (yea-yea)
I was busy falling in love with you.

You are my very own oasis
I need you on a daily basis
Lord, I know what a state of grace is
It’s whenever I get my hands on you.

I missed both of the Woodstocks
I missed Disco and Punk Rock
Thank God I missed New Kids on the Block
I was busy falling in love with you.

You are my very own oasis
I need you on a daily basis
Lord, I know what a state of grace is
It’s whenever I get my hands on you.

I missed Mother’s Day, Labor Day
I missed almost every holiday
I missed the funeral of my first fiancée
I was busy falling in love with you.

(Chorus)

I was busy (yea-yea)
I was busy (yea-yea)
I was busy (yea-yea)
I was busy falling in love with you.

Now even the Lord said
“Where the hell is he?”
I was busy falling in love with you.

Quite Like You

Here on a soft and starry night
Finding my way into your warm bright light
Hardly a mystery, out of the blue
Nobody loves me
Quite like you.

Just when I think I’m all alone
I think of you and feel I’m safe at home
Hardly a mystery, somehow I knew
Nobody loves me
Quite like You

Quite like you, quite like you
No one loves me quite like you
No one holds me in their arms
So tenderly.

Loving you, loving you
Nothing I would rather do
Than feel your heart here next to mine
Right in tune
Right in time.

Dancing in circles all these years
Closing my eyes and knowing you’re right here
Hardly a mystery, out of the blue
Nobody loves me
Quite like you

It’s suddenly clear to me
And all so true
Nobody loves me
Quite like you.

Next to You

In this city of tales
Everything pales . . .

It’s so good to be back next to you
As a matter of fact
It’s a dream that’s come true
We just had to connect to renew
It’s so good to be back next to you.

It’s so good to be back next to you
Guess the note that you wrote
That I read made me blue
When I think of the stink we’ve been through
It’s so good to be back next to you.

Nobody’s talkin’
But I know what you’re thinkin’
You can still move me
Without even blinkin’
I feel drunk
I’m not even drinkin’
I’m so high on you.

It’s so good to be back next to you

Let’s get back on the track
Take a train to the moon
And we’ll shoot for the stars like we used to
It’s so good to be back next to you.
What luck we’re stuck
Like paper to glue
It’s so good to be back next to you.

In this city of tales
Everything pales
Next to you.

Our Love is Beautiful

Our love is beautiful
It’s like big bunches of flowers, two hands full
It’s like a show becoming a Broadway hit that just keeps on running.
Our love is beautiful
It’s a Sunday morning ride on a carousel
It’s a picnic lunch under a tree
Our love is beautiful
Look and see!

Our love is beautiful
It’s a country house with candles in the windowsill
A moonlit pumpkin patch
It’s cashmere coats and hats to match
Our love, it’s beautiful
It’s a boat ride down the river for a thrill
It’s a barbecue on a balcony
Well, our love is beautiful
Look and see!

Would you agree with me?
Love’s a picture for the world to see
And our love’s pictured perfectly
It’s three, two, one-derful!
It’s B-A-U-tiful!

Our love, it’s beautiful
It’s a golden sunset over a clover hill
It’s big bright lights on a movie marquee
Well, our love is beautiful
Look and see!

Would you agree with me?
Love’s a picture for the world to see
And our love’s pictured perfectly
It’s three, two, one-derful!
It’s B-A-U-tiful!

Well, our love, it’s beautiful
It’s a golden sunset over a clover hill
It’s big bright lights on a movie marquee
It’s Saturday night with no set plans
A blank sheet of paper; a big box of crayons
Our love, it’s beautiful
And I think you’re beautiful
Well, our love is beautiful
Look and see!
Look and see!
Look and see!
(spoken) It’s beautiful!

Lovers

When the street lights start to dim
He thinks of her, she thinks of him
It happens every night
Lovers with each other on their minds

He’s in Paris; she’s in pain
Wondering when they’ll meet again
Oh, hurry, hurry, hurry time
Lovers with each other on their minds

When they met it was simply great
Champagne at six, dinners at eight
Misty eyes across a table by ten
By midnight, they were hand in hand
And then
With the melancholy moon above
That’s when they would fall again in love
A love like this so rare to find
Lovers with each other on their minds

When they met it was simply great
Champagne at six, dinners at eight
Misty eyes across a table by ten
By midnight, they were hand in hand
And then
When the street lights start to dim
He longs for her; she cries for him
It happens every night
Lovers with each other on their minds.

You Took My Heart

(The Bullet Song)
You took my heart
While the hope still lingered
You lost my love
Like so much sand through fingers
Now after what you’ve said
I should put a bullet
Through your head.

You took my life
Took it all for granted
Wasted my time
When you knew that we were ended
Now after what you’ve done
I should send you love notes
With a gun.

Sometimes I wake up crying in the night
I reach for you, and you’re not there
Sometimes I wonder why I never saw the light
I read your letters now and think
Your shrink must be a billionaire

There’ll come a time
When we run into each other
And if you’re with someone
Better run for cover
Now after what you’ve said
I should put a bullet
Through your head.
I should set a fire
To your fucking bed
I should put a bullet . . .

Love Can Happen

Here I am
Alone again
Left in the dust.
Here I am
Another romance
Just went bust.
Why do I feel like my heart’s in a prison?
I’m losing my sense of optimism.

“When you’re lonely and lost
Love will find you,”
That’s what my friends will say.
Love can happen
Love can happen that way.

Where’s the romance
I thought I would know now?
Hey! What’s the big delay?
If love can happen
Let it happen today.

I can see that love for some
Is somehow always out of reach
But I believe that love will come
When you’re ready to learn
What love can teach.

Well, I was ready
For something to happen
And now you’ve come my way
Yes, love can happen
Love can happen any day.

World on Fire

I like to drink my lemonade on the rocks
I like to sit and play with my blocks
Well, I could hang for hours with my bears and baby talk
Do do do do do do do do do!
Do do do do do do do do do!

Ah, life, I keep it simple–nice and easy, if you please
Won’t catch me flying on no flying trapeze
I admit my heart could use a little bit of anti-freeze
Do do do do do do do do do!
Do do do do do do do do do!

Don’t set my world on fire
Don’t set my world on fire
Don’t set my world on fire
Don’t set my world on fire.

My next door neighbor, Ebenezer, is a nut
In his back yard he built a nuclear hut
Well, I know just how he feels, as scared as a mouse
Crocodiles float in the moat around my house
Do do do do do do do do do!
Do do do do do do do do do!

Don’t set my world on fire
Don’t set my world on fire
Don’t set my world on fire
Don’t set my world on fire.
Do do do do do do do do do!
Do do do do do do do do do!

You set my world on fire
You set my world on fire!

Bring Back the Blues

I can’t go on this way
Nothing much to do
Even less to say
Since you’ve left me
With all this news
It’s time, baby
Time to bring back the blues.

I can’t believe what’s going down
So many sad stories
All over town
Seems everyone’s heart
Has been broken in two
It’s time, baby
Time to bring back the blues.

Save your money, honey
For that rainy day
You can jump in a car
You can jump in a plane
But when there ain’t no jumping
Away from your pain
There ain’t nothing like hearing the blues
To make those blues go away.

Some days you’re lucky
Some days you’re cursed
Things could be better, baby
But they could be worse
So if it looks like there’s just nothing much you can do
It’s time, baby
Time to bring back the blues.

It’s time, baby
To jump back, run back
You can dance back, shuffle back
Shimmy back, move on back
You know you can “Get back,”
You know “Lulu’s Back”
You know I’ll scratch your back if you scratch my back
When the tears are hard to choke back
It’s time, baby
Time to bring back the blues.

Golden

This night is golden
This night’s been one crazy ride
One crazy dream come true
This night is magic
This night is golden.

This night went too fast
This night goes into the books
As one of the best I’ve ever had
Why can’t we stay together?
Like here
Like now
Forever?
This night is golden.

Turn back the clock
Then let’s pretend
That we can live tonight all over
This golden night will never end.

This night is golden
This night goes into the books
As one of the best I’ve ever had
This night’s been one crazy ride
One crazy dream come true
This night is magic
This night is golden
My life is golden, golden
Because of you.
