Steve McQueen
Well I went to bed in memphis
And I woke up in hollywood
I got a quarter
In my pocket
And I'd call you if I could
But I don't know why
I gotta fly
I wanna rock and roll this party
I still wanna have some fun
Iwanna leave you feeling breathless
Show you how the west was won
But I gotta fly
I gotta fly o

[chorus:]
Like steve mcqueen
All I need's a fast machine
I'm gonna make it all right
Like steve mcqueen
Underneath your radar screen
You'll never catch me tonite

I ain't takin' shit off no one
Baby that was yesterday
I'm an all american rebel
Making my big getaway
Yeah you know it's time
I gotta fly

[chorus]

We got rockstars in the whitehouse
All our popstars look like porn
All my heroes hit the highway
They don't hang out here no more

You can call me on my cell phone (you can call me anytime)

You can page me all night long
But you won't catch this freebird
I'll already be long gone
Like steve mcqueen
All we need's a fast machine
And we're gonna make it all right

[chorus]back to top
Soak Up the Sun
(verse)
My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his rv
I can't afford his gas
So I'm stuck here watching tv

I don't have digital
I don't have diddly squat
It's not having what you want
It's wanting what you've got

(chorus)
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna soak up the sun

(verse)
I've got a crummy job
It don't pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love

Every time I turn around
I'm looking up, you're looking down
Maybe something's wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do

(chorus)
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
While it's still free
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me

(verse)
Don't have no master suite
I'm still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I'm the one who has the key

Every time I turn around
I'm looking up, you're looking down
Maybe something's wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

(chorus)
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up

(chorus)
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up

(end)
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock onback to top
You're an Original
Give us what you got
Girl you got a lot
Seems you got an itch that's scratching
Lay it like it plays
Play it like it lays
All your Easter eggs are hatching
In your Cadillac
Reaching for your jack
There's nothing we can tell you
Just a little queen
Dirty mouth and mean
There's nothing we can sell you o

[CHORUS:]
You're an original, baby Like we've never seen before
You're an original, baby
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more o Deadly in the sack
Grooving to The Clash
On some kind of wasted weekend
Pretty little girl
Expensive little world
Curiosity is peeking
Here today and gone by morning
Your ice cream cone is melting fast
Maybe Monday, maybe someday
Your lucky star won't fly on past

[CHORUS]

Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Turn around and you're looking at a hundred more
Caught you in a pose
That everybody knows
We thought you had something special

[CHORUS]back to top
Safe and Sound
Maybe this is forever
Forever fades away
Maybe this is a rocket into space
I don't want to be sad
I don't want to break down
After all I won't let go
Till you're safe and sound
Till you're safe and sound
There's beauty in release
After all the scenes for you and me

I don't blame you for quitting
I know you really tried
Maybe we could have hold on through the night
Cuz I don't want to be lonely
I want to be scared
And all are friends are waiting there
Till you're safe and sound
Till you're safe and sound
There's beauty in release
There's no one left to please but you and me

Till you're safe and sound...

Feel like I could've held on
Feel like I could've let go
Feel like I could've helped you
Feel like I could've changed you
Feel like I could've held on
Feel like I could've let you
Feel like I was a stranger
Feel like I was an angel
Feel like I was a hero
Feel like I was a zero
Feel like I could've touched you
Feel like I could've saved you
Feel like I could've moved you
Feel like I could've held you
Feel like I could've heald you
Feel like I could've told you
Feel like I could've loved you
Feel like I could've loved you
Feel like I could've loved you
Feel like I could've loved you...back to top
C'mon, C'mon
C'mon, c'mon
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
You lay down with angels
To feel yourself again
You've got everything you need
Under your thick skin
I know where you're going
I know where you've been
When it comes to playin' games
You will always win o

[chorus:]
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake
C'mon, c'mon c'mon
Break my heart again
For old times sake o
You can't see your shadow
Reaching for the sky
Lay your head down on my bed
Please don't ask me why
Why am I leaving
Why don't I know
Something deep inside me
Is forcing me to go
You say you need me
But you can't tell me no
When I ask you to stop me baby
You just let me go

[chorus]

You took the best of me
And threw it away
Too bad the rest of me
Still wants you to stay
Want you to stay
You say you need me
But you can't tell me no
When I ask you to stop me baby
You just let me go
You just let me go

[chorus]back to top
It's So Easy
All I want to know
Is when you go
Do you think of me?
'cause I could let you go
But there'd be a hole
Where my heart used to be(e...)

[chorus:]
It's so easy holding you near
I could melt in your arms and disappear
Loving you baby is breaking my heart tonight
'cause it's so easy but it isn't right

I saw you today
Then you walked away
And I couldn't breathe
'cause I know how it would be
The love so real
When you're touching me ooooo

[chorus]

Every night I lay here alone
After you leave me and go home
But she doesn't know that we can't let go
And it's hurting me so

It's so easy holding you near
I could melt in your arms and disappear
Loving you baby is breaking my heart tonight
'cause it's so easy but it isn't right
It's so easy, but it isn't right...no...
It's so easy, but it isn't right.

Baby it's so easy.back to top
Over You
I feel like cherry wine
Like valentines
Like a spring is coming
And everything is all right
I've got a love that's new
I hear you're happy too
That's the way it should be
But lately I feel like crying o

[chorus:]
I wanna get over you
But you're everywhere
And I just can't get away
I gotta get over you
Cause it's just not fair
That I still see your face o

I heard your name today
I walked away
Cause everyone's still talking
I don't need that in my life
Got better things to do
Than worry about you
I'm gonna keep on walking
But sometimes I don't know why

[chorus]

Well we had a good time
But time goes on
You didn't really want me until I was gone
I wanna get over you
Before you get over me
Over me

[chorus]back to top
Lucky Kid
I want to take you down to the river
I want to wash the blood from your hands
I want to make you see
You belong to me
You won't ever win
I want to walk out over the water
I want to tear my heart from my chest
I want to change my face
Wanna leave this place
Start all over again
Well don't you know
You're wasted
You got more than you asked for

Wasted
You walk in through the out door
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted
I want to turn you into a corvette
I want to drive you out of your mind
I want to watch your face
When you reach that place
That you could never find
I want to make you scream for mercy
I want to break the silence within
And take you to your knees
Just like you did me
And crawl around in your skin
Oh don't you know
Wasted
You got more than you asked for
Wasted
You walk out through the in door
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted
You got more than you asked for
Wasted
You went in through the out door
You tasted
What you never had before
You wasted everything
And now you're such a bore
Oh, you're a lucky kid
Wasted
Oh, cause I know what you did
Wasted
Oh, you're a lucky kid
I got your number
Oh, you get away with it.back to top
Diamond Road
Walk with me the diamond road
Tell me every story told
Give me something of your soul
That I can hold onto
I want to wake up to the sound of waves
Crashing on a brand new day
Keep the memory of your face
But wipe the pain away o

[chorus:]
When you're lonely (you're not alone)
When you're heart aches (on diamond road)
It's gonna take a little time
Yeah, it's gonna take a little time
When the night falls (you're not alone)
When you're stumbling (on diamond road)
It's gonna take a little time
To make it to the other side o
So don't miss the diamonds along the way

Every road has led us here today
Little bird, what's troubling you
You know what you have to do
What is yours you'll never lose
And what's ahead may shine
Beneath the promise of blue skies
With broken wings we'll learn to fly
Pull yourself out of the tide
And begin the dream again

[chorus]

So don't miss the diamonds along the way
Every road has led us here today
Won't you shine on
Morning light
Burn the darkness away
Walk with me the diamond road
Tell me everything is gold
Give me something of your soul
So you don't fade away

[chorus]

Don't miss the diamonds along the way
Every road has led us here today
Life is what happens while you're making plans
All that you need is right here in your hands.back to top
It's Only Love
I think I met my match again
Standing round the candlelight
In the middle of this blizzard
You stood and melted all the ice o

[chorus:]
It's only love
It's only love

If only love comes round again
It will have been
Worth the ride o
You were master of so many
Savior to none
I waged all of my hopes so plenty on you
Now look what I've become

[chorus]

Sometimes lonely is not only a word
But faces I have known
And if you see me could you free me with a smile
So I can let go

[chorus]back to top
Abilene
Can't you see I'm holding your flag
The one that you left on the ground
Well is the world too heavy for you
If it makes you feel better, I'll carry it, too
No one's gonna stand in your light
Impressions are easy to fight
But until you turn to me and say
You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay o

[chorus:]
Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene

Isn't it good to be free o
Can't you see I'm wearing your shirt
The one with the heart on the sleeve
Everyone can see you've been hurt
But honey don't give up on me
When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna get out of bed
Well everyday you're gonna find
Broken promises are no worse than words never said

[chorus]

Then you want someone to come along and save the day
Well you make it much too hard

[chorus]back to top
Hole in My Pocket
You can tell me the world is round and I'll prove to you it's square
You can keep your feet on the ground,
But I'll be walking on air
You're pretty good at waiting
While I go running around
Well, that's just the way it is, you know
I got a hole in my pocket
You give me love and I drop it
I guess I threw it away
We stick together with every day that passes by
But I'm just like the weather, I keep on changing my mind
Well you can hardly believe it
Every time I turn and say, well
Good morning, I'm leaving
And I'll be back in a few days
But that's just the way it is, you know o

[chorus:]
I got a hole in my pocket
You give me love and I drop it
I guess I'll throw it away
I got a four leaf clover
I'll throw it over my shoulder
I'm gonna need it someday o

When things don't go right you lead me
Torn up and tied---you free me
When life is strange you take me
Through every change, you never break me
You got a feeling there's a wall that you can never climb
I try to be there where you are, I try to be on time
But I lose my way

[chorus]back to top
Weather Channel
Sunny morning
You can hear it
Siren's warning
There is weather on both sides
And I know it's coming
Just like before
There's a black dog
That scratches my door
He's been growling my name saying
You better get to running
Can you make it better for me
Can you make me see the light of day
Because I got no one
Who will bring me a
Big umbrella
So I'm watching the weather channel
And waiting for the storm
It's just sugar
Just a pill to make me happy
I know it may not fix the hinges
But at least the door has stopped it's creaking
I got friends
They're waiting for me to comb out my hair
Come outside and join the human race
But I don't feel so human
Can you make it better for me
Can you make me see the light of day
Because I got lab coats
Who will bring me a panacea
While I'm watching the weather channel
Waiting for the storm
You won't want me
Hanging around the birthday pony
Even though it's just a game
You know we are the same
But you're the better faker.back to top
