You say you can’t be changed You say it’s not the time You say today’s the day You say tomorrow’s fine Won’t you let me go? Must you play these games? This time, you can’t hang on You don’t want me Why you gotta lie, just lay it down Why you gotta say what I wanna hear Why you always givin’ me The runaround? You cry, I love you so You cry, this time I will go You cry, my heart is breaking You cry, I’ll live without you Won’t you let me go? Must you play these games? This time, you can’t hang on You don’t want me Why you gotta lie, just lay it down Why you gotta say what I wanna hear Why you always givin’ me The runaround? Why you always givin’ me the runaround? You got something to say? Just say it! You scream, I don’t need you You scream, don’t go away You scream, please forgive me You scream, just forget me Won’t you let me go? Must you play these games? This time, you can’t hang on You don’t want me Why you gotta lie, just lay it down Why you gotta say what I wanna hear Why you gotta lie, just lay it down Why you gotta say what I wanna hear Why you always givin’ me the motherfuckin’ runaround?

What is the mindset of the one who lives out in the middle of where I call nowhere? No one around many miles to town, everyone knows their name when they go there. They hear through the trees disrupt to their peace, callin’ in on the phone to the sheriff. He said, “You can’t make that noise, you don’t have a choice, we consider your music a nuisance.” It’s in our veins It’s in our souls We are the music It lifts us up And makes us whole We are the music A young teenage boy trying to find his own way starts a band with a few of his buddies. From garage to garage creating music from thought, parents tell them their hobby’s disturbing. Would we rather them be out on the streets causing trouble from pure utter boredom? When did we become unable to see its life that music has given? It’s in our veins It’s in our souls We are the music It picks us up And makes us whole We are the music Flows from our minds And through our hands We are the music It makes us sing It makes us dance We are the music Oh well, what do they know? They don’t know. Some just can’t see how good it can be. How do we fight this? No way to defy it. What would this place be if we stopped creating? Oh, we are the music. Who do they think they are It’s in our veins It’s in our souls We are the music It picks us up And makes us whole We are the music Flows from our minds And through our hands We are the music It makes us sing It makes us dance We are the music Oh well…. What do they know?

I see him moving across the room and I wonder if it’s my way From what I hear he don’t need words he says what he has to say With those hands Here he comes again With those hands They can make me Lose my way Those hands I try to move I’ve lost all breath, his heart beats in my chest His smoldering gaze there is passion there and he knows I can’t resist Those hands Here he comes again With those hands They can make me Lose my way Those hands Those hands I can’t breathe Oh, I can’t breathe I want him to know his Transparency shows he can’t take me for a fool But every time I try to leave he Knows I can’t say no To those hands Here he comes again With those hands They can make me Lose my way Those hands Those hands Those hands Those magic hands Those fucking hands Those hands I see him moving across the room And I wonder if it’s my way…

Downtown for a few on the weekend just to get down Cocktails, let loose Some girlfriends and the boys too Aiming for a good time Movin’ to the rhythm Someones trippin’ and my mind is runnin’ And I can’t help wonderin’ Where did I go wrong? One whiskey, dos tequila And I’m cool, so cool Two whiskey, more tequila And I’m down, down, down on the floor Uptown, waitin’ To hit the stage and bring it on Straight shot, coke back To loosen up the body Aiming for a good time Movin’ to the rhythm Someones trippin and my mind is runnin’ And I can’t help wonderin’ Where did I go wrong? One whiskey, dos tequila And I’m cool, so cool Two whiskey, more tequila And I’m down, down, down on the floor On the floor We just wanted to have a good time Movin’ to the rhythm Someones trippin’ and my mind is runnin’ And I can’t help wonderin’ Where did I go wrong? One whiskey, dos tequila And I’m cool, so cool Two whiskey, more tequila And I’m down, down, down on the floor (Repeat two more times)

Steppin’ up to the door Gray carpet on the floor I’ve smelled this smell before I think I’m gonna ride I spy across the room The perfect man to do the Job that I came to do I think I’m gonna ride So loud, feel it pound So fast, can’t slow down So strong, sure and true You know I love to ride And I just wanna ride Slidin’ behind the wheel Soft leather enhancin’ the meal He hopes to seal the deal But I just wanna ride Pullin’ onto the street I push the pedal with both of my feet Sweet blessed fantasy I just wanna ride So loud, feel it pound So fast, can’t slow down So strong, sure and true You know I love to ride And I just wanna ride Ooh, to ride Oh, the wind in my hair Mmm, the man by my side Take him for a ride The ride of his life The ride of his life So loud, feel it pound So fast, can’t slow down So strong, sure and true You know I love to ride And I just wanna ride So loud, feel it pound So fast, can’t slow down So strong, sure and true You know I love to ride And I just wanna ride ‘til I die, oh, I wanna ride Ride all day Ride all night Ride, ride, ride until my Fingers touch the sky I wanna ride, ride, ride, ride Ride, oh, ride, oh I’m gonna ride, ride, ride, yeah!

Don’t say a word And I’ll never know How it feels We take this life We never know tomorrow’s ending I’ll give you mine We never know of new beginnings So here’s to us We’re here to tonight We don’t sit by We take this life We take this life Oh, we take this life Alone in your room How does it feel? How does it feel? Ever in ruin How does it feel? How does it feel? You with your walls Now I’ll never know How it feels Oh, cannot hide it Don’t deny it We take this life Now you’ve had enough How does it feel? How does it feel? The game was too tough How does it feel? How does it feel? Never to return And I’ll never know How it feels We take this life We never know tomorrow’s ending I’ll give you mine We never know of new beginnings So here’s to us We’re here to tonight We don’t sit by We take this life We take this life Oh, we take this life Never know tomorrow’s ending I’ll give you mind Never know of new beginning’s So here’s to us We’re here tonight We don’t sit by We take this life We take this life Oh, we take this life We take this life!
