Sitting On Top Of the World - lyrics

Hey I’ve paid my dues
I’ve had my share of holes in the shoes
I’m glad it’s all forgotten
I love it when you’re free to spoil me rotten
Those little things you know 
Night shopping for a soul to go

I’m sitting on top of the world and I like it
I’m sitting on top of the world

I want this to be real
Coming out of my cage made of steel
God I know it’s final
Decided to release my love on vinyl
Those little things you show
You kiss the wind you let it blow 

I’m sitting on top of the world and I like it
I’m sitting on top of the world I like it
I’m sitting on top of the world and I like it
I like it

Flip right through a magazine
Bottle neck, a tambourine
Light a candle at the show
Swing it, high and low

I’m watching the dawning
I’m sitting on top of the world and I like it
I’m sitting on top of the world and I like it
I’m sitting on top of the world and I like it
Sitting on top of the world and I like it

Happy On the Outside - lyrics

You can watch her doin’ the rounds
She’s there for everyone
Throwin’ kisses, makin’ plans
For midnight men, mornin’ sons

Well, did the wine make her dance?
No, she’s always been the star
She’s got that riddle in her smile
But a burden in her heart

She’s so happy on the outside
But she’s cryin’ on the inside
And there’s nothin’ I can do
To make her glad

So happy on the outside
Hurtin’ on the inside
And it’s sad so sad
Baby, it’s so sad

Hey, did the wine make her dance?
No, she’s always been a star
So be prepared to fall in love
Though her heart hides the scars

She’s so happy on the outside
Hurtin’ on the inside
It’s such a sad sad sight
Such a sad sad sight

She’s so happy on the outside
But she’s cryin’ on the inside
And there’s nothin’ I can do
To make it right

She’s so happy on the outside
Oooh, hurtin’ on the inside
It’s such a sad sad sight
Such a sad sad sight

After All - lyrics

Now it’s about time I wrote you a letter
Hey baby, it’s me for worse or for better
Got nothing to waste in pace for another lane
No loss, only gain

I know all we had has dried like the desert
Stains from the sand are still on my T-shirt
And I crave a drink of heavenly cool cool rain

And after all you were the greatest
After all I did my best
There is nothing to regret, big or small
After all, there wasn’t a loophole
We were bound to take the fall
Life goes on and on and on after all

Now it’s about time I settled the story
You slept in too late and missed all the glory
Got stuck in a dream
That finally blurred your brain
I tried to stay sane

Hey love is so blind it pops out the window
But no one will find teardrops on my pillow
As I raise a glass of heavenly cool champagne

Cos after all you were the greatest
After all I did my best
There is nothing to regret,
Large or small, oh no
After all, peep thru any keyhole
And you’ll see we were bound to fall
But life goes on and on and on after all
Yea, life goes on and on and on after all

Dream On - lyrics

Dream On

Dream on
Yesterday is gone
And it’s clear
I’ll never get out of here
No dice
Got something in my eyes
It might be a tear

She never shoots her gun
She only keeps it just for fun
I wanna call her bluff
But i never get close enough
Though I love to hear her heartbeat

Dream on...

Eighteen times today
I’ve been wishin’ my day away
And it’s hard to say
If I’m windin’ up ok
But I pray I’ll hear her heartbeat

Dream on...

In my ear I hear the heartbeat
In my ear I hear the heartbeat

Only When I Dream - lyrics

Only When I Dream

To every day there’s a history
To every love that’s lost there is tragedy
I saved a vision of you in my head
Watched a new universe being born, raised and bred
In the calm of my bed
 
Some might say it’s over now
I don’t believe them
If I only got to you
I’d prove I’m right
 
Only when I dream
I hear you, I’m near you
I hold you close to me
Only when I dream
I touch you and I breathe you
I feel you deep inside me
 
Things were never easy for me
In the temple we built to stay sacred and free
I came lookin’ for more self esteem
All I found was your voice
On the answering machine
Simple and clean
 
Some might say it’s too far gone
I don’t believe them
If I could only talk to you
I’d prove I’m right
 
Only when I dream...
 
I tried to catch a butterfly
I tried to make God’s summer sky
Heal me
Rain exploding in my face
Seems to fade without a trace
Heal me

I'm Glad You Called - lyrics

I'm Glad You Called

Hate to say I’m glad you called
But you know i always tell the truth
It’s been a while and lots of miles
I wouldn’t say I have been missing you

The first week I stayed in my bed
That summer went straight to my head
The first year without you
I walked like the dead

Hate to say I’m glad you called
Even though it doesn’t matter now
There was a time I might’ve cared
But I’m seeing someone else now

I don’t have to think very hard
To rewind every frame of my love
I never I could never get enough
Of your stuff

Look around look around look around
Babe, I look around
I look around look around look around
Babe, I look around

Hate to say I’m glad you called
But you know I always tell the truth
It’s been a while and lots of miles
I wouldn’t say that I’ve been missing you

The first week I cried in my bed
That summer I hurt and I bled
The first year without you
Is hard to forgive

So hard to forgive
So hard to forgive

Speak To Me - lyrics

Speak To Me

Speak to me with tenderness
Speak to me with gracefulness
Speak to me with happiness and love
 
Speak to me in loneliness
Speak to me in bitterness
Speak to me in faithlessness with love

You want to hide when you’re alone
Where do you run to when you’re on your own?
You’re looking to find some peace of mind
But nothing’s in sight at the end of the line, oh no
Speak to me in emptiness
Speak to me in failed success
Speak to me in speechlessness with love

You want to hide when you’re alone
Where do you run to when everything’s gone?
You’re looking to find a good thing in life
But nothing’s in sight at the end of the line

So where do you hide when you’re alone?
Where do you run to when you’re on your own?
That dream in the dark just sank like a stone
That voice in your heart,
It won’t come to the phone,
It never comes

No One Makes It On Her Own - lyrics

Have you ever had the feeling
You take it all for granted
You wake up every morning
And expect to rise
Have you ever had a moment
To look into the mirror
To find a person
Who won’t open her eyes
Have you ever felt a presence
(or is it all in the past, dear?)
So mesmerizing
It chills you to the bone
Have you ever been in love
And overcome that first fear
Well, then you know
No one makes it on her own

Did you ever catch a sunset
Right across the ocean
The universe revealed
And it didn’t make sense at all
When you came into my world
Causing quite a commotion
I could have sworn I’ve met you
Many times before
Cos there’s something in your eyes
That links us together
Something ‘bout your face your lips
Your smile looks so alone
Have you ever been in love
And thought it’d last forever
Well, then you know
No one makes it on her own
Hey, there’s something in your eyes
That links us together
Something ‘bout your face your lips
Your smile looks so alone
Have you ever been in love
And thought it’d last forever
Then you know
No one makes it on her own

Way out - lyrics

Way Out

I used to work it out with my head in a cloud
A record machine playin’ out loud
I guess my fate had to turn
Followed a star to a candle that burned

Bag full of crackers an’ chocolate bars
Breakin’ my back, sleepin’ in cars
Ha! I always woke up in doubt
Well, now I know what the fuss is about

Way out, out of the blue
I met a young girl
It could’ve been you
Hey, what was I supposed to do
I didn’t want to fall in love

Try to keep sane an’ savin’ the light
Two things to do when you can’t fight the night
I always lay down in doubt
Well, now I know what the fuss is about

Way out, out of the blue...

Sometimes you don’t decide for yourself
Sometimes you don’t decide for yourself
Sometimes you can’t decide for yourself

Way out, out of the blue...
