Chemistry
I remember when I found out about chemistry
It was a long, long way from here
I was old enough to want it but younger than I wanted to be
Suddenly my mission was clear

So for awhile I conducted experiments
And I was amazed by the things I learned
From a fine fine girl with nothing but good intentions and a
Bad tendency to get burned

All about chemistry
Won't you show me everything you know
Ah wonder what you do to me
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh

Some time later I met a young graduate
When I had nobody to call my own
I told her I was looking for somebody to appreciate
And I just couldn't do it alone

So for awhile we conducted experiments
In an apartment by the river road
And we found out that the two things we put together had a
Bad tendency to explode

All about chemistry
Won't you show me everything you've learned
I'll memorize everything you do to me so I can
Teach it when it comes my turn

Fine spring day, california waves
Sweet pacific scenes through the
Windows of airplanes and hotel rooms

So when I find myself alone and unworthy
I think about all of the things I learned from the
Fine fine women with nothing but good intentions and a
Bad tendency to get burned

All about chemistry
Won't you show me everything you know
Ah wonder what you do to me
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh

All about chemistry
Won't you show me everything you've learned
I'll memorize everything you do to me so I can
Teach it when it comes my turn

It's all about chemistry
It's all about chemistry
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh

It's all about chemistry
It's all about chemistry
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, ohback to top
Bed
My little darling it's a crying shame
The way that you lead me on
And I've got nobody but myself to blame
Cause I've always just played along

Well show me a body that gets no love
And I'll show you a body that's way messed up
Well it seems like you're aware of the effect you have on my head

If you feel like I'm asking you for too much
We can keep in touch
And I'll find someone else to bed
Bed
Find some
Find someone else to bed

My little darling I'm a tangled mess
When you tease me the way you do
& what it would be like I can only guess
If you'd please me like I wanna please you

Well show me a friendship that's pure and chaste
And I'll show you and engine that's dying to race
Well the time has come for me to find
Another way to get my soul fed

I know we could be the sweetest friends
But if that's where it ends
Then I'll find someone else to bed
Bed
Find some
Find someone else to bed
Bed
Find some
Find someone else to bed

Well the time has come for me
To take care of myself instead
You know if we remain
On a spiritual plane I will go insane
Don't make me find someone else to bed
Bed
Find someone
Find someone else to bedback to top
Act Naturally
Our little secret just might be the kind of thing that you can't hide
It's growing like a tangled vine & rising like a river in the tide
And everybody knew when you walked into the room
I was just a fool for you, nothing I could do
Everybody sees you taking control of me
Well I'm not begging for release
I'm just begging darling please, please

Act naturally
Don't let our troubles show
Don't let anybody know
Till we get it figured out
Don't give them anything that they could doubt

Our little problem doesn't seem to be about to go away
As far as I can tell it's gonna keep on showing more with every day
And everybody look, yeah, that was all it took
I can't help believing they can read me like a book
So hide your feelings tight till we figure how to make it right
I don't know what I should but i
Would do it if I could

Act naturally
Just be you beautiful
Just be you casual
I'll be me before the fall
You be you before this all came down
(act naturally)
Don't let our troubles show
Don't let anybody know
Till we get it figured out
Don't give them anything that they could doubt
Act naturally (remove this line)
Just be you beautiful
Just be you casual
I'll be me before the fall
You be you before this all came downback to top
She's Got My Number
She's got my number she always did
She can always see where my secret's hid
Everything about me is hers to tell
She's got my number she always will

She's got my number I must confess
One look in her eyes and I feel undressed
She can see right through all my little games
She's got my number she has my name

Late night driving with the telephone
In the car and I'm always
Waiting, waiting for the girl to call
I'll be lost on a lonely late night

She's got my number I must confess
One look in her eyes and I feel undressed
All of the world's standing at her door
She don't even care what they're waiting for
And every mistake that I ever made
Every little sin is on her display
And through it all I find that I want her still
She's got my number she always will

Late night driving with the telephone
In the car and I'm always
Waiting, waiting for the girl to call
I'll be lost on a lonely
Late night highway with the telephone
In the car and I'm always
Waiting, waiting for the girl to call
I'll be lost on a lonely
Late night

She's got my number she always did
She can always see where my secret's hid
Everything about me is hers to tell
She's got my number she always willback to top
Follow
I would sure love believing
In something that's never leaving
Would like to let go the hurting
When everything's so uncertain

You know I tried
To show you what I have inside
Will we laugh at how this all began
When you're an old woman and I'm an old man

Take me wherever you go
Help me forget tomorrow
Love me your best and I know
All of the rest will follow
Love me as well as you know
And everything else will follow

I wouldn't mind pretending
It's something that's never-ending
Would like to believe that someday
We won't be living this way

I know you tried
To show me you were on my side
Could it be that I've already found
The thing that I've been searching the whole world round

Take me wherever you go
Help me forget tomorrow
Love me your best and I know
All of the rest will follow
Love me your best and I know
Everything else will follow

Take me wherever you go
All of the rest will follow
Help me forget tomorrow
All of the rest will follow
Love me as well as you knowback to top
Sunshine and Chocolate
All my life I've been looking for
The perfect mate
And when I finally found the one
It was almost too late
Underneath the auditorium
She showed me why
I would have waited all of my life
For somebody like

Sunshine and chocolate all over me
In my mouth and on my tree
Round my body under my hat
Sunshine and chocolate just... like... that

I was alone when I woke up
And found the note
It said you surely know how to fuck
But I gotta go
I hope you find someone to take care of
And give yourself to
And until I get to kiss you again I wish you

Sunshine and chocolate every day
In your work and in your play
In your mouth and down your back
I wish you, I wish you, I wish you that
Sunshine and chocolate all over you
Over everything you do
On your body and in your mind
Sunshine, chocolate, everything fine

Now my eyes are open wide
As I travel around
Maybe some summer day I'll find
Her face in the crowd singing...

Sunshine and chocolate everyday
In your work and in your play
In your mouth and down your back
I wish you, I wish you, I wish you that
Sunshine and chocolate all over you
Over everything you do
On your body and in your mind
Sunshine, chocolate, everything fineback to top
Who's Stopping You?
Take all that you've got
Multiply by zero
Divide by the time you've got left
That's x

Add it up write it down tell me what you've found

We're speaking in tongues
Both of us dumbfounded
Our brains have been impounded by our hearts

Life is so uncertain
Look at all the hurting that we've done
You said you had somebody better to become

Who's stopping you
Who's stopping you
Who's stopping you
Who's stopping you

We're wasting our time
Watching our old reruns
Waiting for the good one that never comes

You say it beats working
On the emptiness that's lurking inside your head
Step into the light my friend

Who's stopping you [4x]

You said you had somebody better to become

Who's stopping you [8x]back to top
I Wish
I wish I could be anyone but the one that I am now
I wish I could see any scene but the one I hang around
I wish I could do anything but the things I always do
No matter how I try to sing along
Something is always wrong
What I wish I knew

I wish I could drive in the car that you drive around the bay
I wish I could ride in the back seat you're riding in today
I wish I could be more like someone you wish that I could be
No matter how I change it anyway
You won't even say if you really want me

I can try to please you
Get down on my knees for you
Go outside and freeze for you
Cross the high seas for you
Whatever you need me to
I can climb the trees for you
Twist in the breeze for you
But there's one thing that I can never do
I can't believe for you
I can't believe in me for you

I wish I could turn into somebody far, far away
I wish I could make myself satisfactory in every way
I wish I could know whether you really know what you need
If I could only be somebody else
I wouldn't be myself
And maybe you'd want me

I can try to please you
Get down on my knees for you
Go outside and freeze for you
Swim the high seas for you
Whatever you need me to
I've been climbing the trees for you
Twisting in the breeze for you
But one thing I can never, never do
I can't believe for you
I can't believe for you
I can't believe in me for youback to top
One True Love
All above me the stars are bright
And a sweet suburban breeze is blowing
And down the block are the parking lights
Of a hundred friends who I barely know and
Don't know me
Don't know me
None of them know me

And all through the party I want to leave
(all alone with one true love)
I could be happy if I could be
(in the dark with one true love)

And in the middle of everyone
I still find myself with my thoughts alone
And in the middle of all the noise
Look around myself at the shining toys that
I don't need
I don't need
I don't really need

And all through the party I want to leave
(all alone with one true love)
All of the lights are shining on me
(but all I want is one true love)

In this world I can see
Many billions waiting in the sun
So I'd love to believe
There'd be one of us for everyone
One of us for everyone
Enough to go around
But that's not what I've found

And all through the party I want to leave
(all alone with one true love)
All of the lights are shining on me
(all I want is one true love)
All of my life I've just wanted to be
(all alone with one true love)
Every day and night to be on my own with
One true love
With one true love
With one true love
With one true love
With one true loveback to top
Get a Grip
Lonely boys and you lonely girls
Here at the end of the lonely world
You're finding out
If there's someone to cry about

Lonely girls and you lonely boys
Playing alone with your lonely toys
Well don't be blue
If there's no one to play with you

Get a grip on yourself you know you should
I got a grip on myself and it feels good
Get a grip on yourself take my advice
I got a grip on myself and it feels nice

When the lights come on and the party's through
There are always a few with nobody to do
Well now don't despair
You'll eventually get there

And meanwhile all of you lonely ones
Here's what to do while you wait for the sun
To rise above
The loneliest kind of love

Get a grip on yourself you know you should
I got a grip on myself and it feels good
Get a grip on yourself take my advice
I got a grip on myself and it feels nice

And it feels nice
And it feels nice 4x

If you're looking for someone to get a grip on you
First you gotta get a grip on yourself it's trueback to top
Girlfriend
Walking into parties on your own
It's getting old now
Twice around the room and out alone
It feels so cold now

And I'm probably showing up
Just about the time you leave

Girlfriend, girlfriend
Looking for a little bit of something sweet
Girlfriend, girlfriend
Wherever you are is where I'd like to be

Waking up alone and knowing how
I'm gonna spend the day
In cd racks and Java Jacks
The afternoon just slides away

And you're probably sitting near
With something you don't want to read

Girlfriend, girlfriend
Looking for a little bit of something sweet
Girlfriend, girlfriend
Trying to find a little bit of sympathy
I get the feeling you're a lot like me

I see Paris flights are cheap these days
But I know how it's gonna go
I'll be wearing out the same two phrases

I don't smoke
I'm here alone

Walking into parties on your own
It's getting old now
Twice around the room and out alone
It feels so cold now

Girlfriend, girlfriend
Looking for a little bit of something sweet
Girlfriend, girlfriend
Wherever you are is where I'd like to be

Girlfriend, girlfriend
Trying to find a little bit of sympathy
Girlfriend, girlfriend
Why do I get the feeling you're a lot like me
I get the feeling you're a lot like meback to top
Over My Head
Long ago I was told there were riches inside of me
Someone old hid the gold and the finding was my affair
In those days when my ears heard a story my mind believed
So I searched with my greed in the sunshine for all to see there

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been

Yes you know many tried none succeeded my mind to train
When the fools came to lay down their money I laughed, uncool
Saw the mouth of the whale just in time to go down the drain
Now I float with my boat in the darkness and play the fool

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've been

I'm in over my head in this game
Over my head
And I'm afraid I'm never gonna find my way back to where I've beenback to top
Surprise
I feel the day is arriving soon
When I can't stay around anymore
They'll look in all the familiar rooms
Until they feel the breeze through the door

Then they can say it's the company that I keep
So they never have to believe in the tears I weep

I'm gonna surprise them all
When they look and I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm gonna surprise them all
Because I've already moved along

You can stay if you have to do
It's got to be your own decision
But someday I will be back for you
And then you better not refuse me again

Cos one more chance is all I'll promise to provide
And circumstances choose for those who can't decide

I'm gonna surprise them all
When they look and I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm gonna surprise them all
Because I've already moved along
Already moved along

I'm gonna surprise them all
When they look and I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm gonna surprise them all
Because I've already moved along
Already moved alongback to top
El Matador
Matador sweeps the veil
From the last young day of my life
Malibu tides inhale
Santa ana winds from behind

Wade out into the water
No more chances this year
I've busied myself all summer
My day for swimming is here
Yes it's time

Seaside revelations
All those dreams and visions of mine
Washed up like a vacation
Lost as I wasted my time

Looking through my dark glasses
I see smiles on the faces of friends
But time keeps pushing me on now
And I'll ride this wave till the end

Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile

Say goodbye to the weekend
And the last of the summertime sun
Driving off the end of a decade
So many things to be done

September and the trees are restless
Windchimes blow in the dark
Lying on the couch defenseless
With blue clouds court and spark

Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile

Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhile
Please don't go away
Stay awhile, stay awhileback to top
