East Side Story
There was this girl I used to see - down on 42nd street
She'd walk by on her way to work - n' make the air smell so sweet
I used to sit in a coffee shop - sometimes I'd have a cup
And when she'd go by - she'd light up the sky
Like the sun coming up
She be standin' by the bus stop - driver opened up the door
I'd just sit n' watch her - getting on the 104
I wanna give her my number - I wanna tell her my name
Wanna climb on board that cross-town bus
Take a chance she feels the same
It's just another east side story
Everybody's got a tale to tell
And like a hundred guys before me
I fell under her spell
Some things you hold on to - some you just let go
Seems like the ones that you can't have
Are the ones that you want most
I think about her sometimes - I wonder if she was real
And if I ever find her I'm gonna tell her how I feel
It's just another east side story
Everybody's got a tale to tell and like a hundred guys before me
I fell under her spell
It's still the same old story - it's still the same old game
Up there on the eastside - life goes on the same
She never knew my number - never even knew my name
She climbed on board that cross-town bus I never saw her againback to top
This Side of Paradise
I'm ridin' in the back seat - nine years old
Starin' out the window countin' the highway poles
And then I get to thinkin' - that it don't seem real
I'm flyin' through the universe in a '69 oldsmobile
And I wanna know what they're not tellin'
And I don't wanna hear no lies
I just want something to believe in
Ah - it's a lonely lonely road I'm on
This side of paradise
I'm ridin' in the back seat - black limousine
Starin' out the window at a funeral scene
And then I get to thinkin' - and it don't seem right
I'm sittin' here safe and sound and someone I love is gone tonight
I wanna know what they're not tellin'
And I don't wanna hear no lies
I just want something to believe in
Ah - it's a lonely, lonely road we're on
This side of paradise
There ain't no crystal ball - there ain't no santa claus
There ain't no fairy tales
There ain't no streets of gold
There ain't no chosen few - ya it's just me and you
And that's all we got ya...that's all we got to hold on to
Ya this side of paradise
I remember bein' a little boy in the backseat - nine years old
Always askin' questions - never did what I was told
And then I get to thinkin' like I always do
We wander 'round in the darkness but every now and then
A little light shines through
I want to know what they're not telling
I don't wanna hear no lies
I just want something to believe in
Ah - it's a lonely lonely road we're on
This side of paradiseback to top
Not Romeo Not Juliet
This is story about a boy and girl
Trying find a life in the big world
Somehow they're together
There ain't much to the mystery
Misery loves company
She just waves her hand and says whatever
Well this ain't love this ain't love this ain't love at all
And he says...
We're not Romeo we're not Juliet
Hw long does it take to fill this emptyness
We're just two lost souls and baby we got no regrets
We don't wanna say bye-bye
Babe it's just you and I
We're not Romeo we're not Juliet
He ain't pretty with his hard old heart
Second generation immigrant scars
And he knows that this ain't heaven - no
She's all skinny like a cigarette
And he's the only thing - the only thing that she respects
And he's trying to make it better
This ain't love this ain't love this ain't love at all
And she says...
We're not Romeo - not Juliet
You'd thought you'd seen it all - but you ain't seen nothin' yet
We're just two lost souls and baby we got no regrets
Now it's just you and I
We're nothin' unless we try
We're not Romeo - not Juliet
It has feel right but it never does
It has to be perfect but it never is
You wanna be sure but you never do
We're not Romeo or Juliet - it's just me and you
Ya it's just you and I
We're nothin' unless we try - oh no
We're not Romeo - not Juliet
No we're not - that's a factback to top
Flying
If you ever feel like you're gonna fall - oh I'll be there
And if you ever feel down or feel small - oh don't despair
And if you ever feel lost or feel alone - babe c'mon home
Let's just make love - all night
Let's just hold on - so tight
Let's make it last - for life
I won't let you go
Ya we're flying - feels just like flying
We're such a long way up - from the ground
Just u and me flying - so high 'n I'm never gonna come down
Every time you turn around and wanna run - oh come to me
When every little dream comes undone - oh don't worry
Let's just make love - all night
Let's just hold on - so tight
Let's make it last - for life
I won't let you go
Ya we're flying so high and:
We're never gonna come down:you and meback to top
Open Road
Bryan Adams - Open Road


Verse 1
i'm sitting at the wheel
i got a green light
not afraid of nothin'
cuz heart and soul
i'm built for life
so let the engine roar
push the pedal down
i want the white lines on the highway
to lead me out of town
i'm rolling on and on and on
who knows where i'm goin'?


Chorus
life is an open road - it's the best story never told
it's an endless sky it's the deepest sea
life is an open road to me
life is an open road to me

Verse 2
i got headlights
to guide me thru the night
i got the window down and the radio playing
it makes me feel alive
i'm rolling on and on and on
who knows where i'm goin'?back to top
Room Service
When a hotel room's the closest thing you got to home
You could be in Philadelphia you could even be in Rome
You gotta dial nine to get an outside line
I even need a concierge just to take a drive - it's a crazy life
I hope to see you smile - but I'm always wrong
It's a different melody but the same old song...
Ya I've been on the road nearly all my life
Been around the world 'bout a thousand times
Still a knock on the door makes me nervous
I think I'll see you standing there - but no
It's only room service - ya room service
I've been living out my suitcase as long as I remember
Life's the same - it doesn't change - it's a gibson or a fender
I still think about you babe - I swear sometimes I see your face
These are crazy days
Ya I think I hear your voice - but it's just a dream
It's a brand new movie but the same old scene
Ya I've been on the road nearly all my life
Been around the world 'bout a thousand times
Still a knock on the door makes me nervous
I think I'll see you standing there - but no
It's only room service - ya room service
Ya know I wouldn't change a thing - no
I'm just waiting for the bell in room to ring
I hope to see you smile - but I'm always wrong
It's a different melody but the same old song...back to top
I Was Only Dreamin'
She left her shoes out on the beach
She left my dreams just out of reach
She left her footprints in the sand
She was a bird right in the hand
I met a girl that made me laugh
She left a faded photograph
I thought I heard a siren song
I sang along but I was...
I was only dreamin'
I was only dreamin'
Visions in my head
Talkin in my sleep
Turning in my bed
Life was so complete
Her shoes were on the beach
But I was only dreamin'
I met a girl that talked in rhyme
I met a girl who took her time
I saw the ocean in her eyes
I saw myself unrecognized
And all the stars up in the sky
Fell down like rain and made me cry
I held the world right in my hands
I held her close but I was...back to top
Right Back Where I Started From
You don't know what you got - until you lose it
And I can testify that that's the truth
I had it all and didn't know how to use it
I was so stupid - it was right before my eyes
I've been looking all my life
Waiting for the perfect time
Never knew that I would find it
Right back where I started from
Why'd I have to go so far
When everything was where you are
How'd I know that you be waiting
Right back where I started from
Who can tell ya where the rivers flowin'
Just ride the wave - let it take ya down
All the twists and turns I navigated
It's so frustratin' you were there all the time
I've been looking all my life
Waiting for the perfect time
Never knew that I would find it
Right back where I started from
Why'd I have to go so far
When everything was where you are
How'd I know that you be waiting
Right back where I started from...oh where I started from
I know where I'm headed to - it's right back where I've beenback to top
Nowhere Fast
We're always on the run these days
We hardly have the time to say
What matters most of all
Ya you've always been the only one
The only one to make me run
Anytime you call
Let's not talk about the future
Let's not talk about the days gone past
All this time - we've been runnin' round in circles
I can feel a change a comin'
And I know we're gonna make it last
From now on - we'll be goin' somewhere slowly
Instead of going nowhere fast
When everything has come and gone
We'll look back on this road we're on
And see how far we've come (ya we've come a long way)
Faster than the days go by
I know we're gonna make them last
Instead of goin' nowhere fastback to top
Why Do You Have to Be So Hard to Love
Was it some man that didn't treat you right
Left you reaching out for him in the middle of the night
Is there some heartache that you can't out run
That makes you so afraid to get close to anyone
You're so - easy to look at
You're so easy to hold
It's so easy to touch you - but so hard to let go
It's so easy to want you - that I can't get enough
Tell me why do ya have to be
Why do ya have to be so hard to love
Is it some hurt from long ago
That makes it so hard to let your feelings show
Is it the ghost of who you used to be
That makes you so afraid to bear your soul to meback to top
