Once more around the horn Can’t die until you’re born Landslides everywhere Pass by without a care And set your phase to stun Take off when you hear the crack Run like you're not coming back That ball is out of here Knocked it into next year Take a chance It’s all that you can do Take your chance There’s nothing left to lose
Forever 05:07
Alright I think I got it right OK I think I know my way from here These are the days These are the days I know I could look at you forever Because there's so much to see Alright I think we've got it right OK I think we know our way from here These are the days These are the days I know
If you want to have some fun Meet me at the usual place Your friends will all be there Having fun in the usual ways With the lights turned down And the music turned way up loud Everybody's getting crazy With the usual crowd You've been so damn lonely And I've been so damn lonely I've been so lonely I could cry You've been so damn lonely And I've been so damn lonely I don't want to think about it I just want to move beyond it Just give me a look; it's alright Any trick in the book, it's alright Have some fun with me tonight You'll find you're not the only One feeling lost and lonely If you want to have some fun And forget about the boo hoo hoo Strangers will be waiting for a chance to say "Who are you?" Look 'em in the eye and ask 'em "hey what's your name?" Soon you will be getting on In the usual ways
Carolina 05:07
I open my eyes to the pouring rain But I know the skies will be blue again I can't be like everyone else There's only one place I really fit in Carolina, where I belong Carolina, I'm coming home I want to wake up when the birds start to sing And rock on the porch in the rusty old swing And I'll hear you just starting to wake You'll look at me with that smile on your face
You wanted a shot And that’s what you got But they don’t come around no more You’re wasting your time Drinking your wine So hear me out Because all of your crying Won’t bring them back But who needs ‘em anyway? I was there when the cold winds blew Saw the things that were done to you I just hope when it all is through You’ll be coming with me So open your eyes Is this a surprise? I was here all along There’s no need to wait I think that you’re great! So smile again Because all your crying Won’t bring them back But who needs ‘em anyway? Even if all the lies were true I can see all the best in you I just hope when it all is through You’ll be coming with me
This Time 03:44
It all lies with me now Head out into the dawn Luck may come my way I'll try to make it back some day The battle's lost but the war is won Turn my face to the sun Life has its tricks to play I'll try tot make it back some day I feel the weight Of my mistakes Just kiss them goodbye Just one more chance Forget the past I won’t let you down This time All lies with you now Come back and show me how Once we could meet as friends Let’s get together once again
I Don't Mind 06:00
Everywhere you go Everyone you know Everything we say And all the games we play I don’t mind Right on time You get me so high Rocket to the sky Rattling my brain Driving me insane Let's go to the stars You know they're not that far Take me to the moon We won’t be back too soon
All at once my mind was shutting down All at once I felt my body hit the ground All at once the stars were in my eyes All at once all the world was hypnotized Ah Everyone has lost their mind and... I miss yours, and I miss mine So close your eyes And hold on tight It’s going to be a bumpy ride All at once it seemed to fall apart All at once something happened to our hearts
Blue Monte Carlo, where did our time go? I still recall Your perfect interior, paint job superior V8 of course Parked in the driveway; waiting, patient Blue Monte Carlo, my true amigo I hope you know I would get you back if I knew how I could not know then what I know now Blue Monte Carlo, summers went so slow You had my back My solid companion, a steel D'Artagnan And she made three Hoping the cops were just cruising elsewhere Blue Monte Carlo, the world's a casino I hope you know Blue Monte Carlo, where did the time go? A brand new world Of life as a grown up, the good and the bad luck So much to know They warned me things could get ugly quickly My roller coaster, you're probably a toaster I hope you know
Another UFO 04:58
Oh no Another UFO Come from God knows where And circling our world Are you friend or foe? It seemed so Now we know Oh yes What got us in this mess? One more crazy dream Comes crashing back to earth Just like all the rest
It’s been so long You've turned around I’ve been waiting for this And now it’s fine To see you smile I’ve been waiting For you to come back Give it a little time Wonder what we might find Maybe we’ll get it right tonight Through all the storms Our love transforms I’ve been waiting for this So jump for joy And make some noise I’ve been waiting
People, what have we done? Mother, look at your son Cast from Paradise This tiny blue pearl Can we destroy Such a world? Maybe there is a chance We’ll wake up from this trance How could we let it go? We know all we need to know Maybe its not too late To take better care of this place
Keep it on the rails
