C'mon C'mon

Steve McQueen

Well I went to bed in Memphis
And I woke up in Hollywood
I got a quarter in my pocket
And I'd call you if I could
But I don't know why
I gotta fly

I wanna rock and roll this party
I still wanna have some fun
I wanna leave you feeling breathless
Show you how the west was won
But I gotta fly
I gotta fly

Like Steve McQueen
All I need's a fast machine
I'm gonna make it all right
Like Steve McQueen
Underneath your radar screen
You'll never catch me tonight

I ain't takin' shit off no one
Baby that was yesterday
I'm an all American rebel
Making my big getaway
Yeah you know it's time
I gotta fly

Like Steve McQueen
All I need's a fast machine
I'm gonna make it all right
Like Steve McQueen
Underneath your radar screen
You'll never catch me tonight

Like Steve McQueen
Like Steve McQueen

We got rockstars in the Whitehouse
All our popstars look like porn
All my heroes hit the highway cause
They don't hang out here no more
You can call me on my cellphone
You can page me all night long
But you won't catch this freebird
I'll already be long gone

Like Steve McQueen
All we need's a fast machine
And we're gonna make it all right
Like Steve McQueen
Underneath your radar screen
You'll never catch me tonight
Like Steve McQueen
All we need's a fast machine
And we're gonna ride it all night
Like Steve McQueen
Underneath your radar screen
You'll never catch me tonight

Lucky Kid

I want to take you down to the river
I want to wash the blood from your hands
I want to make you see
You belong to me
You won't ever win
I want to walk out over the water
I want to tear my heart from my chest
I want to change my face
Wanna leave this place
Start all over again
Well don't you know you're

Wasted
You got more than you asked for
Wasted
You walk in through the out door
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted

I want to turn you into a Corvette
I want to drive you out of your mind
I want to watch your face
When you reach that place
That you could never find
I want to make you scream for mercy
I want to break the silence within
And take you to your knees
Just like you did me
And crawl around in your skin
Oh don't you know you're

Wasted
You got more than you asked for
Wasted
You walk out through the in door
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted

Woo hoo hoo hoo
I wanna be happy
Woo hoo hoo hoo
I wanna be happy
Woo hoo hoo hoo

Wasted
You got more than you asked for
Wasted
You went in through the out door
You tasted
What you never had before
You wasted everything
And now you're such a bore
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted
Oh, cause I know what you did
Wasted
Oh, yeah you're a lucky kid
I got your number
Oh, you get away with it

Soak Up the Sun

My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can't afford his gas
So I'm stuck here watching tv
I don't have digital
I don't have diddly squat
It's not having what you want
It's wanting what you've got

I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna soak up the sun

I've got a crummy job
It don't pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love
Every time I turn around
I'm looking up, you're looking down
Maybe something's wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do

I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up

I'm gonna soak up the sun
While it's still free
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me

Don't have no master suite
But I'm still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I'm the one who has the key
Every time I turn around
I'm looking up, you're looking down
Maybe something's wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up

I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock on

Diamond Road

Walk with me the diamond road
Tell me every story told
Give me something of your soul
That I can hold onto
I want to wake up to the sound of waves
Crashing on a brand new day
Keep the memory of your face
But wipe the pain away

When you're lonely (you're not alone)
When you're heart aches (on Diamond Road)
It's gonna take a little time
Yeah, it's gonna take a little time
When the night falls (you're not alone)
When you're stumbling (on Diamond Road)
To make it to the other side

So don't miss the diamonds along the way
Cause every road has led us here today
Little bird, what's troubling you
You know what you have to do
Cause what is yours you'll never lose
And what's ahead may shine
Beneath the promise of blue skies
With broken wings we'll learn to fly
Pull yourself out of the tide
And begin the dream again

When you're lonely (you're not alone)
When you're heart aches (on Diamond Road)
It's gonna take a little time
To make it to the other side
When the night falls (you're not alone)
When you're stumbling (on Diamond Road)
To make it to the other side

So don't miss the diamonds along the way
Every road has led us here today
Won't you shine on
Morning light
Burn the darkness away
Walk with me the Diamond Road
Tell me everything is gold
Give me something of your soul
So you don't fade away

When you're lonely (you're not alone)
When you're heart aches (on Diamond Road)
It's gonna take a little time
To make it to the other side
When the night falls (you're not alone)
When you're stumbling (on Diamond Road)
It's gonna take a little time
To make it to the other side
When you're lonely (you're not alone)
When you're heart aches (on Diamond Road)
It's gonna take a little time
To make it to the other side
When the night falls (you're not alone)
When you're stumbling (on Diamond Road)
It's gonna take a little time
And everything will be just fine

So don't miss the diamonds along the way
Every road has led us here today
Life is what happens while you're making plans
All that you need is right here in your hands

You're an Original

Give us what you got
Girl you got a lot
Seems you got an itch that's scratching
Lay it like it plays
Play it like it lays
All your Easter eggs are hatching
In your Cadillac
Reaching for your jack
There's nothing we can tell you
Just a little queen
Dirty mouth and mean
There's nothing we can sell you

Cause you're an original baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

Deadly in the sack
Grooving to The Clash
On some kind of wasted weekend
Pretty little girl
Expensive little world
Curiosity is peeking
Here today and gone by morning
Your ice cream cone is melting fast
Maybe Monday, maybe someday
Your lucky star won't fly on past

You're an original baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

You're an original baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more

Caught you in a pose
That everybody knows
We thought you had something special

You're an original baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original baby
Turn around turn around

You're an original baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original baby
Look out baby, turn around

You're an original baby
Like we've never seen before
You're an original baby
Turn around turn around turn around
You're an original baby
Like we've never seen before

It's Only Love

I think I met my match again
Standing round the candlelight
In the middle of this blizzard
You stood and melted all the ice

Oh, it's only love
Oh, it's only love
Oh, if only love comes around again
It will have been
Worth the ride

You were master of so many
Savior to none
I waged all of my hopes so plenty on you
Now look what I've become

Ah, it's only love
Ah, it's only love
Ah, if only love comes around again
It will have been
Worth the ride

Sometimes lonely is not only a word
But faces I have known
And if you see me could you free me with a smile
So I can let go

Ah, it's only love
Ah, it's only love
Ah, if only love comes around again
It will have been
Comes round again
It will have been
Worth the ride
Worth the ride
The ride

Safe and Sound

Maybe this is forever
Forever fades away
Like a rocket ascending into space
Could you not be sad
Could you not break down
After all I won't let go

Until you're safe and sound
Until you're safe and sound
There's beauty in release
There's no one left to please
But you and me

I don't blame you for quitting
I know you really try
If only you could hang on through the night
I don't want to be lonely
I don't want to be scared
All our friends are waiting there

Until you're safe and sound
Until you're safe and sound
There's beauty in release
There's no one left to please
But you and me

Until you're safe and sound
Feel like I could've held on
Feel like I could've let go
Feel like I could've helped you
Feel like I could've changed you
Feel like I could've held you
Feel like I could've hurt you
Feel like I was a stranger
Feel like I was an angel
Feel like I was a hero
Feel like I was a zero
Feel like I could have changed you
Feel like I could have healed you
Feel like I could have saved you
Feel like I should've heard you
Feel like I could have moved you
Feel like I could have changed you
Feel like I could have healed you
Feel like I should've told you
Feel like I could have loved you
Feel like I could have loved you
Feel like I could have loved you
Feel like I really loved you
Feel like I really loved you
Feel like I really loved you
Feel like I really loved you
Feel like I really loved you
Feel like I really loved you
Feel like I could've saved you
Feel like I could've saved you
Feel like I could've saved you

Abilene

Can't you see I'm holding your flag
The one that you left on the ground
Well is the world too heavy for you
If it makes you feel better, I'll carry it, too
Cause no one's gonna stand in your light
Impressions are easy to fight
But until you turn to me and say
You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free

Can't you see I'm wearing your shirt
The one with the heart on the sleeve
Now everyone can see you've been hurt
But honey don't give up on me
When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna get out of bed
Well everyday you're gonna find
Broken promises are no worse than words never said

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
You're always giving it all away

Then you want someone to come along and save the day
But you make it much too hard

Abilene
You can bring it home to me
Abilene
Oh
Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free

C'mon C'mon

C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
You lay down with angels
To feel yourself again
You've got everything you need
Under your thick skin
I know where you're going
I know where you've been
When it comes to playin' games
You will always win

C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake

You can't see your shadow
Reaching for the sky
Lay your head down on my bed
Please don't ask me why
Why am I leaving
Why don't I know
Something deep inside me
Is forcing me to go
And you say you need me
But you can't tell me no
When I ask you to stop me baby
You just let me go

C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
Before day breaks, hey baby

You took the best of me
And threw it away
Too bad the rest of me
Still wants you to stay
Want you to stay
Oh baby, I want you to stay
C'mon c'mon
You say you need me
But you can't tell me no
When I ask you to stop me baby
You just let me go
You just let me go

C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
It's all that it takes
C'mon now, c'mon

C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
Break my heart
Oh I know, I know, you know, I know

Hole in My Pocket

You can tell me the world is round and I'll prove to you it's square
You can keep your feet on the ground
But I'll be walking on air
You're pretty good at waiting
While I go running around
Well, that's just the way it is, you know

I, I got a hole in my pocket
You give me love and I drop it
I guess I threw it away

We stick together with every day that passes by
But I'm just like the weather
I keep on changing my mind
Well you can hardly believe it
Every time I turn and say, well
Good morning, I'm leaving
And I'll be back in a few days
But that's just the way it is, you know

I, I got a hole in my pocket
You gave me love and I drop it
I guess I'll throw it away
I, I got a four leaf clover
I'll throw it over my shoulder
I'm gonna need it someday

When things don't go right you lead me
Torn up and tied you free me
When life is strange you take me
Through every change, you never break me
You got a feeling there's a wall that you can never climb
I try to be there where you are, I try to be on time
But I lose my way

I got a hole in my pocket
I take your love and I drop it
I guess I'll throw it away
I got a four leaf clover
I'll throw it over my shoulder
I'm gonna need it someday

I got a hole in my pocket
You give me love and I've lost it
I guess I'll throw it away
I got a four leaf clover
I wanna do it all over
Before it gets to late

I've got a hole in my pocket
I took your love and I dropped it

It's So Easy

All I want to know
Is when you go
Do you think of me
Cause I could let you go
But there'd be a hole
Where my heart used to be

It's so easy holding you near
I could melt in your arms and disappear
Loving you baby is breaking my heart tonight
Cause it's so easy but it isn't right

I saw you today
You walked away
And I couldn't breathe
Cause I know how it will feel
It's a love so real
When you're touching me

It's so easy holding you near
I could melt in your arms and disappear
Loving you baby is breaking my heart tonight
It's so easy but it isn't right

Every night I lay here alone
After you leave me and go home
She doesn't know that we can't let go
And it's hurting me so

It's so easy holding you near
I could melt with your arms and disappear
Loving you baby is breaking my heart tonight
It's so easy but it isn't right
It's so easy but it isn't right, no
It's so easy but it isn't right
Baby it's so easy

Weather Channel

Sunny morning
You can hear it
Siren's warning
There is weather on both sides
And I know it's coming
Just like before
There'a black dog
That scratches my door
He's been growling my name saying
You better get to running
Can you make it better for me
Can you make me see the light of day
Because I got no one
Who will bring me a big umbrella
So I'm watching the weather channel
And waiting for the storm
It's just sugar
Just a pill to make me happy
I know it may not fix the hinges
But at least the door has stopped it's creaking
I got friends
They're waiting for me to comb my hair
Come outside and join the human race
But I don't feel so human
Can you make it better for me
Can you make me see the light of day
Because I got lab coats
Who will bring me a panacea
While I'm watching the weather channel
Waiting for the storm
You won't want me
Hanging 'round the birthday pony
Even though it's just a game
You know we are the same
But you're the better faker

Over You

I feel like cherry wine
Like Valentines
Like a Spring is coming
And everything is all right
I've got a love that's new
I hear you're happy too
That's the way it should be
But lately I feel like crying

I wanna get over you
But you're everywhere
And I just can't get away
I gotta get over you
Cause it's just not fair
That I, I still see your face

I heard your name today
I walked away
Cause everyone's still talking
I don't need that in my life
Got better things to do
Than worry about you
I'm gonna keep on walking
But sometimes I don't know why

I wanna get over you
Cause you're everywhere
And I just can't get away
I gotta get over you
Cause it's just not fair
That I see your face

Well we had a good time
But time goes on
You didn't really want me until I was gone
I wanna get over you
Before you get over me
Over me

I gotta get over you
But you just won't let me
And I should get away
I gotta get over you
But I can't forget the
Things that I see your face
I gotta get over you
But you just won't let me
And I should get away
I gotta get over you
I still can see your face
