I guess that I was not the one for you Some fairy tales are not supposed to come true It’s 3 a.m. and I’m asleep or at least that is what you think But I know what you’re up to Don’t you dare apologize to me When you smell like dirty lies and whiskey I’m better off all by myself I say to you sir, fare thee well and I’ll see you in Hell Well, well, well look who it is now Standing at my door Trying to sleep on my couch I don’t think so No, no, no, no What did you think I would let you in And we could just pretend like nothing ever happened I don’t think so No, no, no, no Cause I’m not there for you I can’t be there for you anymore So I hear that you are seeing someone Do you think that he would mind if I stuck around If you could hear what you just asked You’d know the past is in the past And you’re not welcome here No, you’re not welcome Well, well, well look who it is now Standing at my door Trying to sleep on my couch I don’t think so No, no, no, no What did you think I would let you in And we could just pretend like nothing ever happened I don’t think so No, no, no, no Cause I’m not there for you I can’t be there for you anymore You broke my heart when I was young You tore my life apart and you had fun And now you feel You feel what it feels like To need someone But I’m not the one Well, look who it is now Standing at my door Trying to sleep on my couch I don’t think so No, no, no, no What did you think I would let you in And we could just pretend like nothing ever happened I don’t think so No, no, no, no Cause I’m not there for you I can’t be there for you anymore

I’ve been sworn to secrecy I swore I’d never tell A page was torn to force legitimacy And I’ve been trying to hide it well (Oooh’s) Life is like a limousine For showing off who you are Painted white and always clean But in the end, it’s still a car (Oooh’s) When it comes time to sacrifice What’s on your mind The thing that’s keeping you alive Take note of what it is you’re letting go Take note of what it is you’re letting go (Oooh’s)

Sunday afternoon Like little birds on a cable Condemning forbidden fruit But slipping it under the table The table Friday after school Daddy’s out with the boys and He’s sipping a gin and juice Right after telling the kids that it’s poison It’s poison You can tell me all about it Show me what you’re trying to prove You can build your world around it But that doesn’t make it true He doesn’t have a clue But he’s telling you where to find it He’s looking for something new In the same old place that he started He started You can tell me all about it Show me what you’re trying to prove You can build your world around it But that doesn’t make it true [Bridge] You can tell me all about it Show me what you’re trying to prove You can build your world around it But that doesn’t make it true You can tell me all about it You can tell me all about it You can tell me all about it You can tell me all about it

Here we are Lost under a million stars All so far They don’t know who we are This love is on fire and baby we, we are a match Each time that we light it up Hope it don’t burn out too fast We came with all sorts of warning signs and we jumped right ‘cross the yellow lines and we don’t come recommended by those with their head on right You’re the adventure I’ve always been seeking You are the fence I’m so happy I’m leaping Where will we Be when the leaves turn green? What will next winter bring? This love is on fire and baby we, we are a match Each time that we light it up Hope it don’t burn out too fast We came with all sorts of warning signs and we jumped right ‘cross the yellow lines and we don’t come recommended by those with their head on right You’re the adventure I’ve always been seeking You are the fence I’m so happy I’m leaping Broken parts Shattered hearts It’s dangerous stuff falling in love No matter who you are We came with all sorts of warning signs and we jumped right ‘cross the yellow lines and we don’t come recommended by those with their head on right You’re the adventure I’ve always been seeking You are the fence I’m so happy I’m leaping If this is a dream then I hope I keep sleeping

I should tell you that I’m falling for you That I’m absolutely, definitely falling for you And I don’t know why Well, maybe it’s your smile Just wrap your arms around me and hold me tight It’s the fire in your eyes that keeps me warm at night And I don’t know why Well, maybe it’s your style I’ve been trying not to think about you all of the time But that’s a difficult thing when you’re a part of my life I want to hold you I want to be home I’m tired of being alone I’m tired of being alone There’s so many things that make you who you are Those qualities and subtleties will take you very far And I don’t know why You would want a girl like me Memories of you and I dance ‘round my mind The thought of you with someone else just makes me want to cry And I don’t know why Baby I don’t know why I’ve been trying not to think about you all of the time But that’s a difficult thing when you’re a part of my life I want to hold you I want to be home I’m tired of being alone I’m tired of being alone [Bridge] I’ve been trying not to think about you all of the time But that’s a difficult thing when you’re a part of my life I want to hold you I want to be home I’m tired of being alone I’m tired of being alone I’m tired of being alone I’m tired of being alone

Many years have gone away Many tears have gone astray I burned the bridge leads to his home And now I’m standing all alone The devil deals a tempting hand And Mama, I ain’t been good to my man But if I begged on my knee would he ever care? You think there’s room for a sinner Up there Upon a bed of thorns I lie So many secrets in the night I get a phone call once a day But who would call me anyway The devil deals a tempting hand Mama my life ain’t going how I planned If I begged on my knees would he ever care? You think there’s room for a sinner Up there Time is running Though I haven’t checked it in a while The devil deals a tempting hand Mama I've done things you won't understand If I begged on my knees would he ever care? You think there’s room for a sinner You think there’s room for a sinner You think there’s room for a sinner Up there

Can I get your attention Anybody I’ve got a lot to say I’ve got a lot to get off my chest Pass me the microphone I know you’re sitting on the edge of your seat Free your mind The love ain’t running out There’s enough to go around You don’t have to live without Cause there’s enough to go around In the right kind of weather Satisfaction Doesn’t matter what you wear Sometimes the rain might feel nice So what if tomorrow’s Monday It’s just another day of the week We’ll survive The love ain’t running out There’s enough to go around You don’t have to live without Cause there’s enough to go around [Solo] The love ain’t running out There’s enough to go around You don’t have to live without Cause there’s enough to go around

Some say try the other side of the pillow It’s like running through the snow but I don’t see the adventure in that I’ve been awake for a while I’ve turned it over once or twice But it’s still too warm to snow on our welcome mat I’ll take the rain I’ll write down your name I’ll welcome in the grey I won’t refrain I won’t be afraid For you I’ll take the rain So tonight is coffee-black and moon-white It’s been three hours since midnight I’ve been watching the second hand go around I’m gonna wake up late Splash some water in my face I’ll sit alone and watch the rain hit the ground I’ll take the rain I’ll write down your name I’ll welcome in the grey I won’t refrain I won’t be afraid For you I’ll take the rain Call it like it is I know you want to But waking up alone is what I’m used to I should be used to you I’ll take the rain I’ll write down your name I’ll welcome in the grey I won’t refrain I won’t be afraid For you I’ll take the rain

Tell me why you’re home so late I’m throwing plates you’re sleeping on the floor I never thought our love would be a chore Now you’ve got me walking out the door Tell me why we’re standing here We’re staring at this fear that we call home What used to warm my heart now chills my bones Hand in hand but we’re always alone We watch each other bleed It’s our twisted fantasy, yeah But my soul is yours to keep Tell me why you haven’t left if you’re going through Hell (Well it’s taking long to pack up all the promises you haven’t kept, I haven’t slept) I know you too well (I’m not feeling to well) What happened to ‘in sickness and in health’? We watch each other bleed It’s our twisted fantasy, yeah But my soul is yours to keep I tried so hard To push you away And you know that I would do anything To hear you say Hear you say You’ll stay (I’ll stay) We watch each other bleed It’s our twisted fantasy, yeah But my soul is yours to keep My soul is yours to keep Tell me why we’re standing here, we’re staring at this fear that we call home (Your soul, my home)
