Track Name: Showtime
still injured take a look at me
hard to believe the severity
tried to play the game of who first falls
it’s no good, in bad shape, then what a close call
it’s no surprise I had to keep my guard up
can’t look up, I’m stuck up and so messed up
lust time any place anywhere, who cares
watch slow, where to go, now ya know

tonight, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh
showtime, time to shine
shine your love light on me tonight
shine
show
time

love’s last legs or so I thought
altered quick if I was ready or not
power precision, an easy decision
true blue babe knew just what to do

baby’s fine and dandy
she tastes just like candy
she got a lethal weapon
take my heart, jump start, why don’t you rip me apart
Track Name: I Think You Love Me
I found this song
in the lines of your palm
was there all along
now you say we’re through
but I’ve got this hunch
we’ve only begun
and before too long
I’ll have us right where we belong
so baby hang on

watch what you say, I think you love me
try as you may, I still think you love me

I never knew
a woman like you
I swear that’s the truth
but you say we’re through
nothing I can do
if only you knew
I’d hate to be wrong
but I think that we get along
so baby stay strong

watch what you say, I think you love me
try as you may, I still think you love me
I know at heart you try to resist me
but when we’re apart, I think you miss me
Track Name: Do You Want It?
remember when
the bright lights were our friends
that kind of magic
I thought we had it
then again
I thought it’d never end
so let me have it
do I have it?
in my mind
I’m listening to melodies and rhymes
I’m listening for any kind of sign this time
that one real pretty song could be mine

my mother said
just to get ahead
you have to want it
well do you want it?
cuz you may find
staring at the sun will make you blind
and waiting for the stars to realign
is one more way of being left behind

I’ve been told
you’re lucky if they let you sell your soul
don’t you know?
you’re lucky if they even let you pay the toll
let you play the role

fever dreams
I used to wonder what they really mean
I used to look for something
hidden in between
the midnight messages talking to me

sweet revenge
I wonder where it went
don’t you want it?
well then get on it
try again
sing to the silence
and if it’s haunted
that’s what you wanted
all my life
I’ve waited for the words to come out right
I’ve waited for the chorus to arrive
waited for the moment
every night
I hold the embers up against the light
hoping to ignite some dynamite
Track Name: Sometimes It's All Too Much
I was born with a memory
something uneasy
tell me what could it be?
any time I let my thoughts run free
I see atrocity
what’s it mean about me?

sometimes it’s all too much
sometimes everything is cruel
sometimes it’s all too much
so tell me what I’m supposed to do
let it go
or let it overflow?
it’s seems like I just might be losing hope

the kind of thing that always makes me cry
you know I wish that I
could keep it inside
seems like everybody else can hide
their softer side
but what’s it do for my pride?

sometimes it’s all too much
sometimes everything is cruel
sometimes it’s all too much
so tell me what I’m supposed to do
even though
I don’t believe in ghosts
there’s something telling me I’ve got to...

...open the gift
that’s all it is
long as you live
with the beast
that you keep
underneath

sometimes it’s all too much
sometimes everything is cruel
sometimes it’s all too much
so tell me what I’m supposed to do
even though
I don’t believe in ghosts
there’s something telling me I’ve got to...

sometimes it’s all too much
Track Name: True True Love
what’s the use of
angels above
so far away
while I’m wide awake
tired and lonely
and thinking if only
you were my true true love

I don’t know who
might have told you
I’d string you along
with a love song
a lover or fighter
I might not be either
could I be your true true love?

years and years to
make a dream come true
feelings may change
but some stay the same
and looking back someday
I know that I’ll say
you were my true true love
Track Name: Bad 4 U
now that I’ve got your attention
you’re my main attraction
can’t deny the compulsion
to complicate the situation
It’s electric but so hectic with you
she’s a thriller and a killer
who’s hitting on who

just what would good love do?
you know I’d be bad for you
matter of fact, you oughtta stay back
baby don’t even ask
‘cause I’ve got it bad, so bad for you

what a contrast in our styles
I should have seen it all for miles
if you like the twist the knife inside me
you shouldn’t make it look so damn easy
expressed I’m impressed and I think you know
deep in it in a minute and you won’t let me go
Track Name: The Last Night of Our Lives
shiny new
dancing shoes
I picked them out for you
the needle moves
hits the groove
a signal coming through

is it the last night of our lives?
nobody even knows
underneath the neon lights tonight
you better hold me close

speakers are on
they’re big and strong
the kind that sing along
so carry on
like it’s the prom
and wave your magic wand
‘cause right or wrong
the lines are drawn
I fear we don’t have long
and come the dawn
if we’re all gone
we’ll leave behind a song

so tell me what to believe in
what the seers are seeing
what they think is the reason
that our hearts keep on beating
even as we are sleeping
something else is still breathing
can you tell me the meaning
the meaning of it all
Track Name: This Ain't Over
hey
this ain’t over
this is not the end, my friend
hey, this isn’t over
we can always meet again

when the setting sun descends
when the shooting stars are sent
turn the dials all to 10
then, girlfriend, we rock again

hey
don’t say goodbye yet
we got time to kill, until
the day it all goes quiet
do you ever think it will?

after all the amps are built
and every prophecy fulfilled
after all that god has willed
we’ll be rocking even still

if the heavens rearrange
and every destiny is changed
one thing always stays the same
we can still turn up the gain

today
we’re starting over
something new and bright, all right
don’t wait until we’re older
we’ll be old enough tonight
