“Circle Sky” Lyrics

Circle sky
Telling lies
Raison d’ĂȘtre
Idol threat

’Cause it looks like we’ve made it once again
Yes, it looks like we’ve made it once again

Color sound
Run aground
Seagull sails
Holy grail

’Cause it looks like we’ve made it once again
Yes, it looks like we’ve made it once again

It’s a very extraordinary scene
To those who don’t understand
But what you have seen you must believe (Believe)
If you can, if you can

Hamilton
Smiling down
N.R.G.
Falling free

’Cause it looks like we’ve made it once again
Yes, it looks like we’ve made it once again

It’s a very extraordinary scene
To those who don’t understand
But what you have seen you must believe
If you can, if you can

Circle sky
Telling lies
Raison d’ĂȘtre
Idol threat

’Cause it looks like we’ve made it once again
Oh yes, it looks like we’ve made it to the end

“Never Enough” Lyrics

Why is it never enough
No matter what I do?
I give it all that I’ve got
And it’s always too few

And now you’re askin’ for more
Why do I hesitate?
’Cause I know in the end
That it’s always too late
And not enough for you

I’ve often heard you say
You’ve got to seize the day
That when your life is gone
Oh, how it’s gone for so long

And there are often times
When life is not so kind
And there those are around
Who need your feet on the ground

And it’s not enough
It’s never enough
I don’t stand a chance
To fill your sweet lovin’ cup
’Cause it’s not enough
It’s never enough
It’s not enough for you

[break]

Whoa, I long for all those years
Wasted alone with these endless tears

And it’s not enough
It’s never enough
I don’t stand a chance
To fill your sweet lovin’ cup
’Cause it’s not enough
It’s never enough
It’s not enough for you

It’s not enough
It’s never enough
I don’t stand a chance
To fill your sweet lovin’ cup
’Cause it’s not enough
It’s never enough
It’s not enough for you
For you

“Oh, What A Night” Lyrics

Oh, what a night
But now I must forget you
But my heart won’t let you
Out of my life

Oh, what a day
We walked around the city
You said, “Now, isn’t it a pity?”
That I couldn’t stay

But if I could live that night again (And again)
It would be the same
And if I had the chance (Just one chance)
I’d stay another day

Oh, what a night (Ooh)
Your kisses were so tender
I always will remember
The promises we made

Oh, what a day (Aah)
You smiled, and it was magic, magic
I thought it was tragic
I had to go away

But if I could live that night again (And again)
It would be the same
And if I had the chance (Just one chance)
I’d stay another day
Oh, what a night

[break]

Oh, what a night (Ohh, yes)
At last, we’re back together
I’ve been wondering whether
It would feel the same

Oh, what a day (Ohh, no)
When you said you had another
I guess I’ll recover
To love again some day

But if I could live that night again (And again)
It would be the same
And if I had the chance
I’d stay another, stay another day
I’d stay another day

Micky: I forgot the crash at the end!

“You And I” Lyrics

After all the spotlights and the flowers
After all the parties and goodbyes
There was something in the air
Something that we realized
We would always share

And it was you and I
You and I

After all the music and the madness
After all the late night fantasies
We knew that we would make it through
There was little in our way
Nothing they could do

’Cause it was you and I and promises not broken
You and I and magic memories
After all was said and done, they never understood
How we always made it
We knew we always would

’Cause it was you and I
You and I

[break]

Now it seems that we are still together
When all the others never made it through
Someday, they’ll learn our secret ways
It isn’t such a secret
It isn’t hard to do

’Cause it’s just you and I and promises not broken
You and I and magic memories
After all was said and done, they never understood
How we always made it
We knew we always would

’Cause it was you and I
You and I
You and I

“Unlucky Stars” Lyrics

It breaks my heart to say goodbye
I know that I deserve to cry
I know that time will see me through
But in this meantime
Woman, all I dream about is you

Unlucky stars are in my sky
My fortune teller, she saw me and cried
She said that I might have to wait
My lucky ship is lost
And comin’ in too late

Unlucky stars
Oh, unlucky stars
Venus and Mars
Are up in arms

If now it’s time to let it go
Give me some time to let you know
That I adored you ’til the end
I couldn’t stand another day without a friend
I couldn’t stand another day without a friend

“Admiral Mike” Lyrics

You’re selling ads, you slimy toad
Don’t smile at me and shake my hand
You’re killing me, you’re killing us
Because you’re only, only selling ads

You’re selling ads, you stupid twit
The naked lunch is on your knife
The homicides are suicides
Because you’re only, only selling ads

Your copy kills, your copy smells
Realities are crushed beneath the ads your copy sells

Go back to hell, you giddy fools
There is no truth you cannot maim
He killed himself, you killed him first
Because you’re only, only selling ads

Your copy kills, your copy smells
Realities are crushed beneath the ads your copy sells

You’re selling ads, you slimy toad
Don’t smile at me and shake my hand
You’re killing me, you’re killing us
Because you’re only, only selling ads

Because you’re only, only selling ads
Because you’re only, only selling ads
Because you’re only, only selling ads

“Dyin’ Of A Broken Heart” Lyrics

Told my doctor something wrong with me
She said, “Gimme forty dollars, and we’ll look and see
Now hop up on the table, now we’ll take some blood
Find out what you’re dyin’ of”

She called me in the morning, said, “Now here’re the facts
Well, it isn’t your liver, and it isn’t your back
It’s not your blood sugar or the Asian flu
That’s not what’s killin’ you”

You’re dyin’ of a broken heart
It really wasn’t very smart
You lived through Nixon and a drug or two just to get your due
Dyin’ of a broken heart

I called my analyst, I was a mess
Said, “Gimme hundred dollars, and we’ll take a test
Lie down on the couch and tell me what you dream
It really isn’t what it seems”

You’re dyin’, you’re dyin’ of a broken heart
And I’m cryin’, it really wasn’t very smart
I lived through Nixon and a drug or two just to get my due
Dyin’ of a broken heart

[break]

Dyin’

You’re dyin’, you’re dyin’ of a broken heart
And I’m cryin’, it really wasn’t very smart
I lived through Nixon and a drug or two just to get my due
Dyin’ of a broken heart

You’re dyin’ of a broken heart
It really wasn’t very smart
I lived through Nixon and a drug or two just to get my due
Dyin’ of a broken heart (Get your due)
Dyin’ of a broken heart (Get your due)
Dyin’ of a broken heart…

“Regional Girl” Lyrics

She’s a regional girl
Come to the big city, give it a whirl
She thinks that she can make it
She thinks that she can take it
I think she’s gonna end up flippin’ burgers in a basement
She’s a regional girl

He’s a regional guy
Come to the big city, give it a try
He wants to be a mover
Yeah, he wants to shake it up
I think he’s gonna end up pourin’ Pepsi in a cup
’Cause it’s a regional lie
It’s a regional lie

Mary, Mary, Mississippi, Indiana Jones
Did you think that you could really make it on your own?
A-singing whoa, oh oh oh, whoa, oh oh oh

Eddie, Eddie, good and ready, now you’ve got your chance
Try to keep the little buggers playin’ with your pants
A-singing whoa, oh oh oh, whoa, oh oh oh

It’s a regional lie
The grass is always greener, and the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big one
Yeah, you wanna strike it rich
I think you’re gonna end up flippin’ burgers for some bitch
’Cause it’s a regional lie

[break]

Mary, Mary, Mississippi, Indiana Jones
Did you think you could really make it on your own?
A-singing whoa, oh oh oh, whoa, oh oh oh

It’s a regional lie
The grass is always greener, and the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big one
Yeah, you wanna strike it rich
I think you’re gonna end up flipping burgers for some bitch
’Cause it’s a regional lie
It’s a regional lie

“Run Away From Life” Lyrics

Let’s run away from life together
Let me run away from life with you
Let’s run away from life together
Leave behind the stormy weather
Let’s find out what fantasy can do

Where we’ll go to, they can’t touch us
Life is perfect, nothing more to do
Nothing more that we’ll be needin’
Life is paradise in Eden
Eatin’ grapes and makin’ love with you

Rest unchanging, no more fights
We won’t ever even disagree
Let’s go off into the heavens
In eternal happiness for free

Nothin’s wrong, no strings attached
No reason to get crazy, never blue
Nothin’ from your noisy neighbor
Nothin’s new, no trials, no labor
Cross the river Jordan, hallelue

[break]

Rest unchanging, no more fights
We won’t ever even disagree
Let’s go off into the heavens
In eternal happiness for free

“I Believe You” Lyrics

I believe you
I believe you
I believe you
I believe you

I believe you on a sunny day
I believe you chase the clouds away
I believe you

I believe you on a rainy night
I believe you put the moon to flight
I believe you

Whoa, whoa
I believe you

I believe your body
I believe your heart
I believe we’re one
I believe we’ll part
I believe you

I believe you warm
I believe you’ll stay
I believe you cold
I believe you’ll stray
I believe you

Whoa, whoa
I believe you

The engines of your love
Achieve escape velocity
I’m catapulted into space
For moments, I am free
Then a trap door drops, I’m plummeted
Into quicksands of despair
I’m consumed by flames of agony
’Til you tell me that you care

Whoa, whoa
And I believe you
I believe you, ah

[break]

Whoa, whoa
I believe you
I believe you
I believe you
What else can I do?
I believe you

“It’s My Life” Lyrics

It’s my life, and I’m takin’ over now
It’s my life, and it’s time that I learned how
No excuses, for the truth is
It’s my life now

I stumble, and I fall, and I think about it all
Then I make amends
But it never ends
And I’ve just begun to wonder why

And I listen to the songs
And I read all the words
And I seem to remember
Something that I’ve heard
Of a fire and a cave
And shadows on the wall

It’s my life, and I’m takin’ over now
It’s my life, and it’s time that I learned how
No excuses, for the truth is
It’s my life now

I wanna believe in the miracles
But they mix me up
Then they pass the cup
And I’ve just begun to look the other way

And I don’t wanna lean
On the stars or on the dreams
On the fantasies
Or the deities
Don’t I think it’s time to
Lean on me?

It’s my life, and I’m takin’ over now
It’s my life, and it’s time that I learned how
No excuses, for the truth is
It’s my life now
No excuses, for the truth is
It’s my life now

“It’s Not Too Late” Lyrics

If I had a penny
For every time that I thought about you
I would be a millionaire
I would send you flowers each day
And I would show you in every way
Just how much I really care

The summer sun and the winter snow
The autumn leaves and the spring rains know
Just how much I need your love
And if I knew that my time was near, and you were there
I would have no fear
Your name would be my dying prayer

It’s not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind, my love
Before we run aground

It’s not too late
To say that I love you
And it’s not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too (It’s not too late)

If I was a rich man’s son
I would work ’til the day was done
Just to prove my love was true
I would take you for my wife
And I would love you all my life
I would never leave or be untrue

It’s not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind, my love
Before we run aground

It’s not too late
To say that I love you
And it’s not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too (It’s not too late)

You know our future and your feelings
And the love that I have for you
They’re always in my heart, they’re on my mind
A never-ending love affair
We’ll go together everywhere
Our love will last until the end of time

You know our future and your feelings
And the love that I have for you
They’re always in my heart, they’re on my mind
A never-ending love affair
We’ll go together everywhere
Our love will last until the end of time

It’s not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind, my love
Before we run aground

It’s not too late
To say that I love you
And it’s not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too

It’s not too late
To turn this ship around
To sail into the wind, my love
Before we run aground

It’s not too late
To say that I love you
And it’s not too late for you, my love
To say you love me too

It’s not too late (It’s not too late)
It’s not too late (It’s not too late)
It’s not too late (Whoa)
To turn this ship around
