Closing Time
Closing time - time for you to go out, go out into the world.
Closing time - turn the lights up over every boy and every girl.
Closing time - one last call for alcohol, so finish your whiskey or beer.
Closing time - you don't have to go home but you can't stay here.

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - time for you to go back to the places you will be from.
Closing time - this room won't be open 'til your brothers or you sisters come.
So gather up your jackets, and move it to the exits - I hope you have found a
Friend.
Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

Yeah, I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - time for you to go back to the places you will be from...

I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
I know who I want to take me home.
Take me home...

Closing time - every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end...back to top
Singing In My Sleep
Got your tape and it changed my mind
Heard your voice in between the lines
Come around from another time
Where nobody ever goes

All alone on the overpass
Wired and phoned to a heart of glass
Now I'm falling in love too fast
With you or the songs you chose

And all the stars
Play for me
Say the promise you long to keep

I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep
I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep

I've been living in your cassette
It's the modern equivalent
Singing up to a capulet
On a balcony in your mind

In the city the lion sleeps
Pray to sony my soul to keep
Were you ever so bright and sweet
Did you ever look so nice

And all the sounds
Dream for me
Dive me down in a soul so deep

I can hear you sing it to me in my sleep
I can hear you sing it to me in my sleepback to top
Made to Last
Made to last awhile
And roll on
Made to move in style
And move along

Made to dream of flying
So high
Made to wake up crying
I don't know why

Beautiful one
Asleep in the sun
Secret, sweet, and sublime
I hope you last a long, long time

Made to come alone
And pair up
Flash like a rolling stone
Seventy-one

One time love affair
With the earth
Waiting on the air
For some re-birth
(for what it's worth)

Wherever you are
Nearby or far
Black, white, lemon or lime
I hope you last a long, long timeback to top
Never You Mind
Saturday morning along and barely feeling
Sitting at home after rocking and areeling
All night in a cat fight
With the only one that can make me cry

Open the blinds and the world is in rotation
Shaking my mind like an etch-a-sketch erasing
Sunshine, you were bad, i'm
Still mad but I can't remember why

I believe you know me well
I react like you're rining a bell
Are you sorry that you treat me unkind
Never you mind

Rolling along to the song that aggravates us
Beckoned on by the mirage of an oasis
Hurry, I'm getting blurry
And it's no longer clear in my mind

I believe you know me well
I react like you're ringing a bell
Are you sorry that you treat me unkind
Never you mind

I believe I got you down
You react like anybody else around
Are you sorry that we wasted our time
Never you mind

Sometimes it takes all my time guessing why
I can't figure it out
Sometimes it takes all my energy just to forget about
All the memories that I'd be better off without
I believe you know me well

Switch on the box mr. spock is on the table
Dr. mccoy is unable to connect his brain
Sweatin and strainin
Well it seemed so simple at the timeback to top
Secret Smile
Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me

So use it and prove it
Remoce this whirling sadness
I'm losing, I'm bluesing
But you can't save me from my sadness

Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me

So save me I'm waiting
I'm needing, hear me pleading
And soothe me, improve me
I'm grieving, I'm barely believing it now, now

When you are flying around and around the world
And I'm lying alonely
I know there's something sacred and free reserved
And received by me onlyback to top
D & D
- 4:13

DND
Now they'll leave us alone
DND
Don't disturb us no more

How like you to make the whole world disappear and
How like you to make everything seem so clear
How like you make me want to stay forever
Here behind your door

DND
Hang the sign on the door
DND
Don't disturb us no more

How like you to make my love your hideaway and
How like you to make my troubles slide away and
How like you to make me want to play forever
Here behind your door

Minute I got some space and time I wanted to get me back
in the crowd
Minute I got some peace you found me trying to make my
way to the loud
What a clown...

DND
Leave the hotel a noon
DND
Will I see you soon?
How like you to make the whole world disappear and
How like you to everything seem so clear and
How like you to make me want to stay forever
Here behind your door

Minute I got some space and time I wanted to get me back
in the crowd
Minute I got some peace you found me trying to make my
way to the loud
What a clown...

Completely Pleased
I wanted to leave you
Completely pleased
Sleep drifting above you
Sweetly released

I want to see you smiling, weak in the knees
I want to see you come, come, completelely pleased
I want to give you something priceless and free
And free - ee - ee

Io wanted to leave you
Completely pleased
Sleep drifting above you
Sweetly complete/at peace

I want to see you hazy, dazed, and confused i
Want to see you come, come completely used up
I want to give you something forever and true
And true - oo - oo

Oh, you broke it
Now you bought it
So you might as well
Use it while you got it
Do
What you wanna do

I wanted to leave you
Completely pleased
Sleep drifting above you
Sweetly released

I want to see you smiling, weak in the knees
I want to see you come, come, completelely pleased
I want to give you something priceless and free
And free - ee - eeback to top
This Will Be My Year
Thursday's crush is a friday night rush
And a monday morning cry
It's the tail that you keep chasing
And it gets away every time

New years eve and it's hard to believe
Another zodiac's gone around
While you drank yourself high on hoping
And watched the ceiling spin from the ground

Counting down from ten it's time
To make your annual prayer
Secret santa in the sky
When will I get my share

Then you tell yourself
What you want to hear
Cause you have to believe
This will be my year

Pound your fist and cross it off your list
But you know you're not that strong
When the man at the stop light catches you
Singing along to a brand new song

Well maybe it's
Trash or the overnight smash that brings your
Ship crashing through the wall
So you can make your grand departure
From a world getting way too small

One wheel in the ditch another
Spinning in the air

Put your pedal down to the floorboard but you're not
Getting anywhere

Then you tell yourself
What you want to hear
Cause you have to believe
This will be my yearback to top
All Worked Out
She's got it all worked out in her mind
And you're part of the plan
And you don't have the final word

She's got a long head start on your brain
And your heart is afraif
And you don't get to say you're thinking

Come on make it easy now
Come on make it easy on us all
Come on make it easy now or tears may fall

She's got it all worked out I'm afraid
And your time is arranged
And it's strange but you're feeling fine

(rock on)back to top
California
Driven through the canyons I was
Dazzled by the mountains and we didn't go very far
Close enough to heaven if you
Climb up on a mansion you too can swing like a star

I tried to get inside I bought a
Ticket with my pride and I was gone right out of my head
I went out for a ride to go
Across a great divide but I ended up at home instead

California
I thought I should see
Now I'm back home, yeah
With twelve little pieces of me

I was just a passenger a
Rider on the tremors that were shaking all our beds at night
A visitor a stranger thought i
Might pass for a regular if I just kept out of the lights

Tore my heart out from my chest
Mixed it up in my mind with the best freshest pieces of my soul
Chose the ones I loved the most
Drove 'em all down to the coast
Threw 'em in a big black hole

California
I thought I should see
Now I'm back home, yeah
With twelve little pieces of me
California
I dreamed I would find
Some kinda sorta pick-me-up
Twelve little pieces of my mind
California
I thought I should see
Now I'm back home, yeah
With twelve little pieces of me
California
I dreamed I would find
Some kinda sorta pick-me-up
Twelve pieces of my mindback to top
She Spreads Her Wings
At night she spreads her wings
She dreams of bigger things
She floats above the town
She sings without a sound

She can be anywhere at all
She can be anyone at all

A glow and then a shine
What she hopes she will find
Tonight, tonight

She's got a picture in her mind
She can be anyone at all

At night she changed her mind
She left the world behindback to top
Gone to the Movies
Now the rain comes down the windows and it
Drops onto the forehead of the waiting boy
He surveys his rental kingdom and he
Wondersif he's really lost his joy

Another fool would go down to the
Only place she went to lose herself
She's gone to the movies now and she don't need your help

Now the rain turns into snowfall as the
City sky reflects the silver street below
And it covers up the cars and the wall-
Flowers cd ended half an hour ago

Another fool would dig the broken car out from the snow
And drive to find the show
She's gone to the movies now and she's not coming home
She's gone to the movies now and she's not coming home

Now he looks around his place and anyways
There's nowhere she could sit besides the bed
And he wonders if the car will start tomorrow
Or he'll have to take the bus instead

Any other fool would be out on the roadway
Trying to spot her rusted pontiac
She's gone to the movies now and she's not coming home
She's gone to the movies now and she's not coming homeback to top
