all Eagle Eye Cherry lyrics



Been Here Once Before
Got your back up against the wall
Now you know that after all
When you make mistakes like that
There's no more turning back
Now we've gone and we've lost our heads
You're better off just playing dead
Why you wearing that black hat
There's no point in turning back

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

Well all you know is you need to win
Should you go when your call comes in
Once you see all the blood that flows
I don't think you'll be winning more
Now I thought that was all in the past
And that beast would come back last
Once again we are at war
Yes I know we've been here before

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before...that's for sure
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

And I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure
I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before...that's for sure
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

And I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure
I don't think you'll be winning more
We've been here once before
We've been here that's for sure

I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before
I know, I know, I know
That we've been here once before

Been here once before...

Are You Still Having Fun?
You are on your own
You do as you please
Having so much fun
And I've lost your reason
After all's been said and done
But are you still having fun ?

But how was he to know
When you've gone astray
Happiness would go
Like a lost emotion
You have always gone away
Are you happy today?

Well you know, when you've been defeated
You don't care, and you thank no one
Feelin' lone, you will always need it
But now you're having fun
uuuuhhhhh
You don't know what it is you've done
uuuuhhhhh
You don't know that I

This was your mistake,
in your masterplan
You got it, but you take
You can understand it
After all is said and done
But are you still having fun ?

Well you know, when you've been defeated
You don't care, and you thank no one
Feelin' lone, you will always need it
But now you're having fun
Are you still having fun ?
uuuuhhhhh
You don't know what it is you've done
uuuuhhhhh
Sure that you're having fun
aaaaaaahh
You don't know what it is you've done
aaaaaaahh
Sure that I

I can set you straight
If you let me stay
I hope I'm not to late
Now you won't regret it
I could show you the way
And make you happy today

Well you know, when you've been defeated
You don't care, and you thank no one
Feelin' lone, you will always need it
Well you know, when you've been treated
Well you know, when you've been defeated
Feelin' lone, you will always need it
But now you're having fun
Are you still having fun ?
Are you still having fun ?
Are you still having fun ?back to top
One Good Reason
Give me one good reason
That I should care
Give me one good reason
And I'll be there
Like a thief you've stolen
Like rain on a grave
Like a priest who's spoken
But failed to save

Now the air is empty
And the ground the same
Love has gone to be buried
Beside my name

Give me one good reason
That I should care
Give me one good reason
And I'll be there

Why couldn't you have told me
About your liar's kiss
I can't believe you'd leave me
At a time like this

And the wind is howling
And it's a dying dream
And my faith is silent
While my doubts scream

Give me one good reason
That I should care
Give me one good reason
And I'll be there

Give me one good reason
Give me one good reason
Give me one good reason
That I should care

Give me one good reason
Give me one good reason
Give me one good reason
That I should care

Give me one good reason
Give me one good reason
Give me one good reason
That I should careback to top
Promises Made
Promises made they were lost
Somewhere beside you
Waiting around can leave some
Feeling like I do
Promises made and we stayed
Dreaming of leaving

We will find good days for us
The sun will shine brightly
Live our life if only for just
A moment

The goodbyes are gone but the echoes remain
To remind you
Oh we could belong to the lucky ones
If we just tried to
Promises made where we laid
Our days of believing

We will find good days for us
The sun will shine brightly
Live our life if only for just
A moment

It's okay to cry for a moment
When promises shatter
But don't waste your tears for too long
Because soon it won't matter
Promises made they were lost
But don't bother grieving

We will find good days for us
The sun will shine brightly
Live our life if only for just
A momentback to top
Burning Up
Would you believe me
If I said I'd never lie
Though it ain't easy
I can tell you I have tried
But I got to say
That it comes those days
That I told something untrue
Would you forgive me
If I said I'd lied to you

This is my fear
To tell you what I've done
As things come clear
I'm afraid that you'll be gone
But all I know
Is if you go
At least I've told what's true
Hope you'll forgive me
When I say I've lied to you

I'm burning up
I'm burning for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothing I can do
Yes I'm burning up
I'm burning for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothing I can do

How will you kill me
For what I'm about to tell
Please do it gently
'cause you know I'm bound for hell
All I know is
I've lost my soul
I'm burning inside
Hope you'll forgive me
Yes I have lied
Oh yes I've lied

I'm burning up
I'm burning for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothing I can do
Yes I'm burning up
I'm burning for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothing I can do

Now you know that I've gone
And I've been untrue to you
And once it's told
Well you know there's nothing we can do
I regret that I let this get so out of hand
I pray, please stay, that you'll understand

I'm burning up
I'm burning for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothing I can do
Yes I'm burning up
I'm burning for you
When the truth has been spoken
There's nothing I can do

I'm burning up...

Long Way Around
You say what you say
And you pray that one day
You'll be seen between the shadows
Now that's a waist of your pain
Living your life like a saint
When it don't...no
It don't even matter
Even saints make their mistakes
Letting their dreams fall and break
All it feels like
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
Now I want you to see
How good life can be
You can turn around
And better your life
With the good times found

People will always take the long way around
Before you know it you'll be lost and found
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
People will always take the long way around
People will always take the long way around
Before you know it you'll be lost and found
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
People will always take the long way around

I'm not afraid of pride
When it's for the right side
Don't betray what I believe in
Stand where you want to stand
And I'll believe when I can
'cause I'm telling you now
I been where you're living in

People will always take the long way around
Before you know it you'll be lost and found
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
People will always take the long way around
People will always take the long way around
Before you know it you'll be lost and found
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
People will always take the long way around

Will tomorrow keep it's promise
No one here can say
The past is all behind us
And all we have is today
And all we have is today

People will always take the long way around
Before you know it you'll be lost and found
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
People will always take the long way around
People will always take the long way around
Before you know it you'll be lost and found
Living in sunshine with the shades pulled down
People will always take the long way aroundback to top
Lonely Days (Miles Away)
Girl I can't abide
By the rules you laid down in this game
'Cause now I've gone and lost myself in you
One time you catch a ride
And it takes you miles away
There's a chance of never feeling blue

And those lonely days will be long time forgotten
If we could find another way
Now let's contemplate is this time of passion
Strong enough to make you stay
Because I do believe in forever
And forever I will stay
And those lonely days will remain
Miles and miles away

Emotional exile
Is the safest way to play
Gotta take a chance every now and then
Irresistible change of heart
I will guide your way
We could share a life again

And those lonely days will be long time forgotten
If we could find another way
Now let's contemplate is this time of passion
Strong enough to make you stay
Because I do believe in forever
And forever I will stay
And those lonely days will remain

Miles and miles away
Miles and miles away
Miles and miles away
Miles and miles away

Miles and miles away....

First to Fall
What you doing in the alley
What you doing my friend
What you doing in the alley
Are you lost again

Ain't no good going down that road honey
Ain't no good at all
Getting down on your knees just for the money
And you're the first to fall

No shame you feel no shame
Just come back home again
No blame I lay no blame
Just come back home again

Going on a road trip easy rider
One thing you've got to know
You walking on a minefield
Better watch your number
Before you know it you might blow

I can see the sand in the hourglass
And I can hear the last call
You better take you're chance before it's in the past
And you're the first to fall

No shame you feel no shame
Just come back home again
No blame I lay no blame
Just come back home again

No shame you feel no shame
Just come back home again
No blame I lay no blame
Just come back home again
Just come back home again
Just come back home again
Just come back home again
Just come back home again
Just come back home againback to top
Miss Fortune
She is my miss fortune
With all the troubles we have had
When ever I am around her
I do something bad
Trouble is her lover
Trouble is her friend
When ever I am around her
I commit a sin

Trouble is her love
Troubled loveback to top
She Didn't Believe
He's going back to georgia
Because he knows time and time has come
Don't even know if shell be waiting
Because he's been gone for way too long

How long will you stay
Boy you don't got nine lives to waste
How long will you stay
Saving time losing grace

She believed every word he told her
About the troubles and how they start
She didn't listen to the laughter
She only listened to her heart

How long will you stay
Boy you don't got nine lives to waste
How long will you stay
Saving time losing grace

She didn't believe
She didn't believe
She didn't believe
She didn't believe

He made a promise to no one
That he could right a wrong
He wanted to do something just
But he was just gone

How long will you stay
Boy you don't got nine lives to waste
How long will you stay
Saving time losing grace

She didn't believe
She didn't believe
She didn't believe believe believe

She didn't believe what they told her about her lover
Nothing left bet her tears and theirs were laughter
Forever afterback to top
Shades of Gray
If you start here late, no one will know what you did
No, the streets are straight, it's the soul that's crooked
I've been treated fine,
I've been treated elegantly
But I'm not one for bathing in the waters of plenty
East is East,
West is West
And The Bowery is screaming while Delancey rests
Well, I'm south of the skating, but
I'm north of the cash
I could sure use the money but
I'm ashamed to ask
The traffic has buried all of last night's rain
The words are all different but the accent is the same

The sun is white, and the moon is gray
And the river is black, blue and green
The young are young, and the old are old
There are no shades of gray in between

There's at least ten different strains of smoke in the air
And my prints are on them all, to prove I was there
And I love the curses, but I'm not one for the trenches
Yes I do love the walking , but that God for the benches
It's hard to tell where green begins, and the city gray stops
I guess the trees all bought their armor at second hand shops
My second hand is working, but the minute hand broke again
I know time will pass, but I don't know when

The sun is white, and the moon is gray
And the river is black, blue and green
The young are young, and the old are old
And there are no shades of gray in between
And there are no shades of gray in between

I know the great ones have been here, but where I can't tell
There's dreams here a plenty, but they're being witheld
And I'm more impressed with the closed doors
Than the ones that are open
The whole place tells time by a tower clock that's broken
The pigeons are ravens, and the gulls are vultures
And trash is art, and cash is culture

The sun is white, and the moon is gray
And the river is black, blue and green
The young are young, and the old are old
And there are no shades of gray in between

There are no shades of gray in between
There are no shades of gray in betweenback to top
Wishing It Was
Beauty and grace is what touches me most
Good times can put me in fear
I always feel safe when things are bad
so i cannot let you come near
it seems that i thrive on the dark side of things
I always feel alive when the death bell rings
now you come and bring out the tears in me.
Chorus: Pain never makes me cry, but happiness does,
it's so strange to watch your life walk by
wishing it was
wishing it was more like a fantasy, where everyday surprizes me.
whishing it was.
wo, oh, oh, wishing it was (x 2)
This feeling won't last cause i cannot survive
i tell you i've been here before
when it's moving this fast, it's a matter of time
one of us walks out that door
it seems that i thrive on the dark side of things
I always feel alive when the death bell rings
now you come and bring out the tears in me.
Chorus
Give this some thought
and i'm sure you will know
This is the way it must be
Emotions will rise, emotions will flow,
you bring out the tears in me.
