lyrics

 

La La Land

C’mon everybody do you want something real?
Can’t seem to get ahead but it’s no big deal
Floating like a feather in a wide open space
Landing in a perfect happy place

HELLO WORLD WE’RE HERE AGAIN
LIVING LIFE IN LALALAND

I hear what I wanna here living on Cloud Nine
Jumping on a bed of flowers chasing the time
“Oh it’s a hard road” says everyone I meet
We can’t trust the ground beneath our feet

HELLO WORLD WE’RE HERE AGAIN
LIVING LIFE IN LALALAND
HELLO WORLD WE’RE HERE AGAIN
LIVING LIFE IN LALALAND

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH

LALALALALALALAND LALALALALAND
LALALALALALALAND LALALALALAND

HELLO WORLD WE’RE HERE AGAIN
LIVING LIFE IN LALALAND
HELLO WORLD WE’RE HERE AGAIN
LIVING LIFE IN LALALAND

 

 

Unforgiven

Always tryin’ to clean up my catastrophes
Taking full responsibility
Living my life like every day is the last 
Remodeling the wreckage of my past

But when it comes to you
I know I said I do
But I don’t, no I don’t

YOU’RE UNFORGIVEN SO GO ON LIVING
KNOWING THAT I’VE UNFORGIVEN YOU
AND MY THANKSGIVING
CAME THE DAY I SAW IT WAS OKAY
TO UNFORGIVE YOU

Confessing every sin doesn’t make me a saint
Even though it’s obvious I’ve changed
Once I forgave you but I did not forget
Now I’m taking back everything I said

YOU’RE UNFORGIVEN SO GO ON LIVING
KNOWING THAT I’VE UNFORGIVEN YOU
AND MY THANKSGIVING
CAME THE DAY I SAW IT WAS OKAY
TO UNFORGIVE YOU
Apology

I will find a way to move on
Discontent had its day the pleasure’s gone
If you ask me to describe
What I could want with all I’ve got
I’d say good days and thank you’s
Instead of all these question marks

’Cause when I found you
I thought my life was charmed
And we’d be safe from what
Has happened now has happened now

APOLOGY I’M SORRY APOLOGY I’M SORRY
APOLOGY I’M SORRY BUT I HAVE NO REGRETS

No one knows just why I can’t stay
Starting over’s alright the end so far away
I know I seem careless
My moods they change like the weather
So I ask your forgiveness
While I pull myself together
In the meantime
I live I work I wait I hope
I still have faith
That what was mine can still be mine

APOLOGY I’M SORRY APOLOGY I’M SORRY
APOLOGY I’M SORRY BUT I HAVE NO REGRETS

In the meantime
I live I work I wait I hope
I still have faith
That what was mine can still be mine

APOLOGY I’M SORRY APOLOGY I’M SORRY
APOLOGY I’M SORRY BUT I HAVE NO REGRETS
YOU’LL BE SORRY I’LL BE SORRY EVERYBODY WILL BE SORRY

 

Stuck In My Car

Somewhere the sun is shining
Somewhere the moon is rising
I’m sitting here
Somewhere someone is laughing
Somewhere something is happening
I’m dying here
Let’s go Let’s go

STUCK IN MY CAR TRYING TO GET TO YOU
STUCK IN MY CAR NOTHING I CAN DO
TURN THE RADIO UP AND SCREAM ALONG
STUCK IN MY CAR STUCK IN MY CAR

Slow motion disaster
Wish I could go faster
I’m standing still
I know the world is spinning
But it never brings me any
Closer, closer to you
Let’s go, let’s go

STUCK IN MY CAR TRYING TO GET TO YOU
STUCK IN MY CAR NOTHING I CAN DO
TURN THE RADIO UP AND SCREAM ALONG
STUCK IN MY CAR STUCK IN MY CAR
COME ON COME ON

Oooh get me out of here
Oooh I gotta go I gotta go
I gotta go
Vision Of Nowness

There are some things I will never reveal
About the way I think and what I feel
On the surface, smooth, calm and cool
Eyes deep and blue as a swimming pool
And I convince with certainty
No interference will get thru to me

Like a picture that's been painted
And is hanging on the wall
An admired but untouchable
Reflection
A vision of nowness
A vision of nowness

To know the world, complex and wide
To be temperamentally tranquilized
I'll put you on, but envy none
Break you with care to stay free of want
I'm your curiosity
Notorious, you'll never get what you see

Like a picture that's been painted
And is hanging on the wall
An admired but untouchable
Reflection
A vision of nowness
A vision of nowness
Here You Are

Such a hard life lesson it's so strange
Never trusting things will be okay
But even if you leave
Nothing's gonna change

IF YOU LOSE CONTROL
AND BURN A BRIDGE TOO FAR
NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO
HERE YOU ARE HERE YOU ARE

Fall down screw up get up run away
I know what's behind the things you do and say
So just look at me
And I'll show you what I see

WHEN YOU LOSE CONTROL
AND BURN A BRIDGE TOO FAR
NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO
HERE YOU ARE HERE YOU ARE

The love you seek
The love you own
Is it so fleeting?
Are we really all just alone?
This moment in space and time
Is all that we can know

IF YOU LOSE CONTROL
AND BURN A BRIDGE TOO FAR
NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO
HERE YOU ARE HERE YOU ARE
WHEN YOU LOSE CONTROL
AND BURN A BRIDGE TOO FAR
NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO
HERE YOU ARE
IN MY HEART
HERE YOU ARE

 

Automatic Rainy Day

You walk into the room and the temperature falls
The mood disappears
Chased away by the gathering storm
That is here

I look up painted sky full of memories
And this house has no roof to shelter me

IT’S AN AUTOMATIC RAINY DAY
WHEN I SEE YOU
IT’S THE PERFECT CONSOLATION PRIZE
A LITTLE PIECE OF BLUE
IT’S AN AUTOMATIC RAINY DAY

Just when it feels like the world
Is together and whole
You come around
Dragging your permanent cloud
And the weather turns cold

Hang around for a repeat of history
Falling down in the hole you dug for free

IT’S AN AUTOMATIC RAINY DAY
WHEN I SEE YOU
IT’S THE PERFECT CONSOLATION PRIZE
A LITTLE PIECE OF BLUE
IT’S AN AUTOMATIC RAINY DAY

WHEN YOU SEE THE REACTION YOU CAUSE
DOES IT MAKE YOU SAD?
DO YOU EVEN REALIZE
THAT YOU’RE SUCH A DRAG?
Kissing Asphalt

Manic senses overloaded
Frantic fun day a la moded
Always falling on my face
But I need to stay in hyperspace

I AM SPINNING OUT
KISSING ASPHALT
IT'S ALL CRASHING DOWN
KISSING ASPHALT
I AM PAVEMENT BOUND
AT THE SPEED OF SOUND

Head-rush-holding-breath distraction
Love-to-be-in-love reaction
I'll miss out if I move too slow
Gotta go-go way past go

I AM SPINNING OUT
KISSING ASPHALT
IT'S ALL CRASHING DOWN
KISSING ASHPALT
I AM PAVEMENT BOUND
AT THE SPEED OF SOUND
 
Insincere 

Oh I think I’d better go
No don’t see me to the door
You kiss my mouth you touch my hair
Acting like you care

BUT YOU’RE SO INSINCERE
IT NEVER EVER CHANGES ANYTHING
IT’S OBVIOUS AND CLEAR
THAT WHAT WE MEAN IS NOTHING

Oh I know you are a fake
Yeah I see you’re on the take
Guess I was weak it worked for a while
Every time you smiled

YOU’RE SO INSINCERE
BUT IT NEVER EVER CHANGES ANYTHING
IT’S OBVIOUS AND CLEAR
THAT WHAT WE MEAN IS NOTHING
YOUR HEART IS A GRAVITY WELL
IT DREW ME IN I FELL
YOU’RE SO INSINCERE OH OH

You whisper low and stroke my hand
But we both understand that… 

YOU’RE SO INSINCERE
BUT IT NEVER EVER CHANGES ANYTHING
IT’S OBVIOUS AND CLEAR
THAT WHAT WE MEAN IS NOTHING
YOUR HEART IS A GRAVITY WELL
IT DREW ME IN I FELL
YOU’RE SO INSINCERE OH OH

HAVE A NICE LIFE

 

Sonic Superslide

You should know it’s astronomic
Lost and found in space
If you go it’s atomic
Time bends out of shape

Stars are steady
Planets are aligned
We are your solar sisters
Here to make you shine

RIDE A SONIC SUPERSLIDE
INTO THE FUTURE FLY
WHEN WE COLLIDE
IT’S THE 21st CENTURY COOL!

Make a turn a revolution
Feel it in the air
You can’t stop evolution
Change is everywhere

Visions flying
Spinning disco ball
A perfect actuality
Is unimpossible

RIDE A SONIC SUPERSLIDE
INTO THE FUTURE FLY
WHEN WE COLLIDE
IT’S THE 21st CENTURY COOL!
Throw Me A Curve

Wishing there was less of you?
Are you really sure
How much less is more
Girls are shapely by design
Exactly what you’ve got
Is so easy to adore

CLOTHES HANGER LOLLIPOP
MAGAZINE PHOTO OP
BUT I’D RATHER BE A PIN-UP GIRL
THAN ZERO SIZE

THROW ME A CURVE NOT A STRAIGHT NARROW LINE
THROW ME A CURVE AND I’LL SHOW YOU MINE
GET THE MESSAGE IT’S DIVINE
THROW ME A CURVE IT LOOKS SO FINE

Microthin is way too in
I’m not so sure
I’d rather just be me
Seems everybody in the world
Thinks that x-ray girls
Are the only way to be

CLOTHES HANGER LOLLIPOP
MAGAZINE PHOTO OP
BUT I’D RATHER BE A PIN-UP GIRL
THAN ZERO SIZE

THROW ME A CURVE NOT A STRAIGHT NARROW LINE
THROW ME A CURVE AND I’LL SHOW YOU MINE
GET THE MESSAGE IT’S DIVINE
THROW ME A CURVE IT LOOKS SO FINE
Talking Myself Down

Don’t want to hear the things you’d do to me
Only if you could
I don’t want you to get near to me
It just might feel too good
Don’t lead me
Where we shouldn’t go
And I’ll try not to make too much
Of what you say you know

I’M LEVITATING
HAVING TROUBLE CONCENTRATING

TALKING MYSELF DOWN
I NEED TO FEEL THE GROUND
THINKING EVERY THOUGHT OUT LOUD
TALKING MYSELF DOWN

I know
I’ve been here before
The price is
Too high to afford
If I’m hesitating in this room
So close to you
I’m someone with a weakness
For the damage you could do

IT’S INTOXICATING
HAVING TROUBLE CONCENTRATING

TALKING MYSELF DOWN
I NEED TO FEEL THE GROUND
THINKING EVERY THOUGHT OUT LOUD
TALKING MYSELF DOWN

I’M LEVITATING
IT’S INTOXICATING
HAVING TROUBLE CONCENTRATING

 

Daisy Chain

Punk rock girls with some noise to make
Hollywood 1978
Babe said “Let’s start something great”
We couldn’t wait
Char said “I’ve gotta go non-stop
Gonna stay up ’til we hit the top”
Soon the other stiletto would drop
For the Sweethearts of Pop

Who knew we were going down
So careless with what we’d found
Making and breaking our Daisy Chain
FLOWERS BLOOM THEY FADE TOO SOON
WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR DAISY CHAIN

At Number One not doing so fine
Still having some fun spilling the wine
The rising sun never felt too kind
We were out of our minds
Trying too hard to play the part
KV burned out like a shooting star
Been brought down by a broken heart
We were falling apart

Who knew we were going down
So careless with what we’d found
Making and breaking our Daisy Chain
FLOWERS BLOOM THEY FADE TOO SOON
WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR DAISY CHAIN

The high life was already on the wane
The lines were blurred the pace insane
“I gotta save myself from this runaway train”
We never even said goodbye Sweet Jane
I Think I Need Sleep (Bonus Track)

Your curse has claimed me
and this condition plagues me too.
Obsessed, re- and depressed
Can't we leave these feelings unexpressed?

And I think I need sleep
Maybe then, then I could think
If I could just sleep
But every time that I do, I just dream
I dream about you-
It's a nightmare coming true
Every time that I sleep
I dream about you
I dream about you

You're the hammer that's fallen
You are the dripping tap in time
Insane and deranged
No easy words that could explain

And I think I need sleep
Maybe then, then I could think
If I could just sleep
But every time that I do, I just dream
I dream about you-
It's a nightmare coming true
Every time that I sleep
I dream about you
I dream about you

I avoid the bed you're in my head it feels so bad
I need peace there's no release I think I'm going mad

And I think I need sleep
Maybe then, then I could think
If I could just sleep
But every time that I do, I just dream
I dream about you-
It's a nightmare coming true
Every time that I sleep
I dream about you
It's a nightmare coming true
Every time that I sleep
I dream about you
(I dream about you)
