Witchy woman, lady always knows the way Feel her magic, only hope is stay away You’ll feel like you’ve got the control But she’s run away with your soul She’s the siren who’ll dash you upon the cape Wake up in a sweat, it’s a dream And not something that you want to think about You realize it’s not what it seems She’s in love with me But I never got a say Someone save me please from her crazy game She’s in love with me And I’m scared she’s here to stay Strangely peaceful, yet you know things go astray Restless spirit, not a single card to play She’ll get all up inside your head while she thinks about another’s bed She’s the nightmare the devil sent your way You realize it’s not what it seems And not something that you want to think about Wake up in a sweat, it’s a dream She’s in love with me But I never got a say Someone save me please from her crazy game She’s in love with me And I’m scared she’s here to stay She’s in love with me But I never got a say Someone save me please from her crazy game She’s in love with me And I’m scared she’s here to stay She’s in love with me But how do I get away? Someone save me please from her crazy game She’s in love with me And I might want her to stay

Don’t you know A river flows down to the bay Every song we sing Will end or fade to gray Whatever happens to me Nothin’ like the pain that I see It won’t mean a thing when the music plays Live another day Your troubles fade away It’s gonna be okay I love you come what may Don’t you know Doesn’t matter what they say Stand up tall and play the tunes Your own way How bad can your troubles be When so many ain’t even free They won’t mean a thing when the piper’s paid Live another day Your troubles fade away It’s gonna be okay I love you come what may I’m gonna love you come what may Every day, till the music plays

You won’t believe Where we’re gonna go Never conceive Secrets that i know Well, what do you say Now that you feel it? Like shootin’ stars You and me When we play Blastin’ off to outer space Flyin’ free Know what I mean? Ride my funk machine Hear what I say? Ride it every day Groovin’ with me Feel our rhythm flow Melody supreme Harmony below Ain’t nothin’ we need Music supply it All time is ours Endlessly When we play Got a syncopated bass Feelin’ free Know what I mean? Ride my funk machine Hear what I say? Ride it every day Lookin’ for speed Climb aboard let’s go We’re launching today See you in orbit We’re satellites You and me Know what I mean? Ride my funk machine Hear what I say? Ride it every day

Lookin’ for someone to save me One day I’ll find you, I believe But I’m okay, as long as we find a way And I’ve got precious little time Before I’ve gotta get away I’m tired of the same old boring scene All the hangers-on who want a piece of me And I’m alright, so long as we spend the night Just tell me that it’s me your with Not kiss and tell before goodbye I gotta get away I need to find a new place I gotta gotta get away Unless you make me wanna stay What’s on the highway that I see? Roadkill from my life that’s me I do my time, and hope that payback will be mine I pray that you can help me through And bring some meaning to my life I gotta get away I need to find a new place I gotta gotta get away Unless you make me wanna stay Something’s got a hold on me Will it ever ever ever let me be? I gotta get away I gotta gotta get away Unless you make me wanna stay Lord, take this pain away from me And all the people who can’t see I’m not okay, but I really wanna find escape What I really need is something new To let me see another way I gotta get away I need to find a new place I gotta gotta get away Unless you make me wanna stay I gotta get away I need to find a new place I gotta gotta get away Hope to find a better way

Never, never Did I think we’d be Here today Liars, liars Never believe What they say, hey Lover, lover Can’t you see What’s goin’ on? Run for cover Games people play Must escape Fly away On a cloud, we leave today Hideaway, yeah Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay Anger, anger Building up inside Will betray Danger, danger Fire will burn Clear away, hey My desire To be free Lost in your song Higher, higher We’re meant to be So we say, hey Fly away On a cloud, we leave today Hideaway, yeah Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay Fly away On a cloud, we leave today Hideaway, yeah Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay Fly away On a cloud, we leave today Hideaway, yeah Floating up here every day, here we’ll stay

Let me ask simply, what sets our minds free? Are we awake? So many can’t see, missing what will be Another way, another day We live once only, our time goes quickly The mountains, they wear away Forever we seek, eternal relief Heavenly remedy Seventy years, give or take Fading away every day You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize You’ve gotta realize, we’re all the same You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize You’ve gotta realize, life ain’t a game Too many believe, in what they can’t see They learn to pray They try to tempt me, with milk and honey I don't accept what they say It’s not a real dream, listen to me scream Stop running away A sad reality, surely we all see Life must end some day Seventy years, give or take Fading away every day You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize You’ve gotta realize, we’re all the same You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize You’ve gotta realize, life ain’t a game Seventy years, give or take Fading away every day You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize You’ve gotta realize, we’re all the same You’ve gotta realize, you’ve gotta realize You’ve gotta realize, life ain’t a game

Faded memories Of a life gone by in a blink of an eye I can’t believe Over for so long, still think of you If you needed some solace If you needed some of mine Would you reach out to me? One more time? I’m the one you think of, who knows you All that I’ve said All that I’ve done is true When the world’s run you down You know I’m still there for you Though you’re no longer mine Just pick up the line, because You know me it’s just what I do Melancholy Sundays Thinking ‘bout tomorrow that I wish was yesterday I have to say Don’t need a reason I’ll never judge you All that I’ve said All that I’ve done is true When the world’s run you down You know I’m still there for you Though you’re no longer mine Just pick up the line, because You know me It’s just what I do Heard along the way People tell me I’m the one that they’d call If they had to say Leaning on your friends, it’s nothing new Don’t really care That they feel that I’m no good Who cares what they say? They should go away So long as you still trust me, I’ll trust in you All that I’ve said All that I’ve done is true When the world’s run you down You know I’m still there for you Though you’re no longer mine Just pick up the line, because You know me it’s just what I do

It took me years to see Lived my life afraid But when you came to me You swept my fears away Reason to believe Every word you say Finally feel free And I pray that you stay How I found you, I’ll never know Yet you’re here with me Always be true, don’t ever go, oh no no no ‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Spend your time with me, whoa, oh, oh Let me have another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Livin’ life with me, whoa oh oh I can truly breathe Well you taught me to play Without you I would be Only livin’ life halfway Please don’t ever leave I’d curse that evil day Spare me misery Never go away How I found you, I’ll never know Yet you’re here with me Always be true, don’t ever go, oh no no no ‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Spend your time with me, whoa, oh, oh Let me have another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Livin’ life with me, whoa oh oh You disappeared, running from me Was it my fears, why did you flee? Don’t run away, don’t run away, my fantasy And now I pray, come back to me ‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Come on back to me, oh oh oh Please give me another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Live your life with me, whoa oh oh ‘Nother day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Come on back to me, oh oh oh Please give me another day, ‘nother day, ‘nother day Live your life with me, whoa oh oh

He was the one, bar none Always slipped away Move almost anything they need Without a trace The contraband, by land Across the fifty states First run was mary jane by train Heavy weight Well he’s making one more run Just making one more run Well he’s making one more run He’s making one last run His lucky break, one day Movin’ up the chain He moved the windowpane by plane In his suitcase Stretch limo waits, hot legs Fur coats and gold chains They said to play it safe, their way He disobeyed Well he’s making one more run Just making one more run Well he’s making one more run He’s making one last run He lost his way, then they Tired of his games Gave him away, they called a play The DEA They set the stage, that day He tried to cross the bay Sped with the pure cocaine, fast lane He lost the chase Well he’s making one more run Just making one more run Well he’s making one more run His running days are done He pushed too far, dark star Greed led him astray Was just a stupid fool, their mule He met his fate

Together, we tango We’re soulmates Don’t worry, my darlin’ Our love is here to stay His sweet talk’s just a lie She’s not his only lover He’s not a one-girl guy He’s got her... and another Oh baby, I love you, I want ya Come kiss me, so hot girl You’re all mine, let it go But somethin’ went wrong She left for too long A sure cheater’s song On the day he heard that sapphic moan He knew he was gonna be alone Two he lusted, tangled up as one And his cheatin’ heart was left with none Say baby, I know you What’s with you? You just seem... so distant Did I do something wrong? It’s hard for her to lie. She’s runnin’ out of cover She doesn’t want to cry, Or say they share a lover Don’t say that, you hurt me you know she’s just a friend Hold on now, what’s happ’nin’? let it go Expectin’ to score He walked in the door Then fell to the floor On the day he heard that tragic moan He knew he was gonna be alone Two he lusted, tangled up as one And his ramblin’ heart was left with none... left with none On the day he heard that sapphic moan He knew he was gonna be alone Two he lusted, tangled up as one And his cheatin’ heart was left with none... left with none
