get in the car and drive

Friday, February 15th, 2019

In the picture, you’re right beside me
Arms around my neck and eyes like you’ll never leave
A love lover, a sweet thing
I know we agreed but I think I’ll call you anyway, uh-huh

Well hello it’s just me
A little distance and I lost something in between
I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
You said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

We hold on, take it slowly
Breathing deep and meaning every word for just you only
Keep this inside of you, no matter what you do
These are the simple things in loving you
The simple things in loving you

And you said “how can I believe in something
When you’re never here? I’m not even sure I need this.
How can I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive”

I’ve waited forever
For this to get better
And you said “why should I believe in something
I can’t see or feel with my fingers?
Yeah why should I believe?”

And I said:
“Anytime you think you wanna be my love
That’s a reason, do what you’re thinking of
Anytime you think you wanna come on over
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Stop asking, get in the car and drive
Get in the car and drive”

through the night

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Well you’re belted in the driver’s seat
And you push both pedals with both feet
And you dry your eyes on the cuff of your jacket sleeve
And you can’t you move forward through a veil of tears
And you can’t go back; anywhere but here seems too far away
But you’re scared you may never leave

Through the night, just get me through the night
Through the night, just get me through the night

When a heart breaks down
There ain’t no tomorrow
It’s here and now
Heartache and sorrow
You pray out loud just to survive
No, no, when a heart breaks down
No need to find a meaning
It’s all but gone
Yeah, what you’re needing
Is something strong that’ll numb your mind
To get you through the night
Get you through the night

When the only thing you want to see
Is this day gone
With no memory
Of what’s gone wrong;
To wake from a real bad dream

Through the night, just get me through the night
Through the night, just get me through the night

When a heart breaks down
You’re in for bad weather
It drags along
Lingers until there ain’t no song that can make it right
No, no, when a heart breaks down
No need to find a meaning
It’s all but gone
Yeah, what you’re needing is something strong that’ll numb your mind
Your mind
To get you through the night
Get you through the night

Through the night, just get me through the night
Through the night, just get me through the night

When a heart breaks down
The hell with tomorrow
It’s here and now
Heartache and sorrow
You pray out loud just to survive
No, no, when a heart breaks down
No need to find a meaning
It’s all but gone
Yeah, what you’re needing
Is something strong that’ll numb your mind, your mind
And get you through the night
Get you through the night
Get you through the night
Get you through the night
To get you through the night

total eclipse of the heart

Monday, August 21st, 2017

(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
And you’re never coming ’round
(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit tired
Of listening to the sound of my tears
(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
That the best of all the years have gone by
(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
And then I see the look in your eyes
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart

(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit restless
And I dream of something wild
(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit helpless
And I’m lying like a child in your arms
(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit angry
And I know I’ve got to get out and cry
(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
But then I see the look in your eyes
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right
Cause we’ll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever’s going to start tonight
Forever’s going to start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
Now I’m only falling apart
There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

(Turn around, bright eyes)
(Turn around, bright eyes)

(Turn around) Every now and then I know you’ll never be the boy you always wanted to be
(Turn around) Every now then I know you’ll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am
(Turn around) Every now and then I know there’s no one in the universe as magical and wondrous as you
(Turn around) Every now and then I know there’s nothing any better
And there’s nothing that I just wouldn’t do
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight (and I need you)
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight (If you hold me)
We’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right (and we’ll never)
Cause we’ll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever’s going to start tonight
Forever’s going to start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
Now I’m only falling apart
There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
(Turn around bright eyes)
(Turn around bright eyes)
(Turn around)

Yeah. I had to. 😉

rum

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Starin’ at the prettiest part of this powder keg world
Sittin’ with the finest example of a beautiful girl
If we hadn’t hit the brakes, we’d have no idea
Paradise was hidin’ right here

Dippin’ our toes in the water
I don’t care if it gets any hotter
It’s you and me rememberin’ how to have fun
Let’s put our hearts together
Two parts love and a pinch of good weather
And top it all off with the sun
And mix it with rum, mmm, mmm, mm, mm

We came out here to do a whole lotta nothin’
And we’re doin’ pretty good, I think
The only one thing we need to worry about
Is fillin’ up when the ice cubes clink

Dippin’ our toes in the water
I don’t care if it gets any hotter
It’s you and me rememberin’ how to have fun
Let’s put our hearts together
Two parts love and a pinch of good weather
And top it all off with the sun
And mix it with rum, mmm, mmm, mm, mm
Mix it with rum, mmm, mmm, mm, mm

The lucky folks go to the ocean
The lake’s for the landlocked ones
We got a tarp in a truck bed
A kiddie pool, a slip and sled
Let that garden hose run

Dippin’ our toes in the water
I don’t care if it gets any hotter
It’s you and me rememberin’ how to have fun
Let’s put our hearts together
Two parts love and a pinch of good weather
And top it all off with the sun
And mix it with rum, mmmm, mmmm, mm, mm
And mix it with rum, mmmm, mmmm, mm, mm
And mix it with rum, mmmm, mmmm, mm, mm

give me some love (not 1984)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

I’m a tourist,
Not a terrorist
I can tell you what I’m here for
I’m looking for a good year
Not 1984

Yeah, I’m a tourist,
Not a terrorist
See me coming in the front door
Looking for a good year
Not 1984

I’m not an alien,
I’m Australian
I know I sound a little strange, yes?
But don’t we all want the same thing?
A little bit of happiness

Give me some love
Give me some love
Not 1984

It’s all a distraction, guaranteed satisfaction
But only for now, not for long
Yes it’s all an illusion, all the confusion
But right now we’re singing a song
Yes it’s all in the view, so how’s it looking to you?
It’s a wild ride but don’t get me wrong
It can be amusing, but what are we choosing?
Well right now, we’re singing a song

I’m a tourist,
Not a terrorist
I can tell you what I’m here for
I’m looking for a good year
Not 1984

I’m not an alien,
I’m Australian
I know I sound a little strange, yes? Yes.
But don’t we all want the same thing?
A little bit of happiness

Give me some love
Give me some love
Not 1984

Give me some love
Give me some love
Not 1984

Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Ooh, give me some love)
Give me some love
Give me some love (Ooh, give me some love)
Give me some love (All you need is)
Give me some love
Give me some love
Give me some love

I was at a party
And this fella said to me
“Something bad is happening,
I’m sure you do agree.
People care for nothing,
No respect for human rights.
Evil times are coming,
We are in for darker nights.”

I said “who are you
To talk about impending doom?”
He got kinda wary
As he looked around the room
He said, “I’m a minister,
A big shot in the state.”
I said “I just can’t believe it,
Boy, I think it’s great.
Brother, can you tell me
What is right and what is wrong?”
He said, “keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone”

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

Over in the corner,
I could see this other guy.
He was kinda flirty
He was giving me the eye
So I took advantage
Of the fact that I’m a star
Shook my hair and took
A casual stroll up to the bar
And as sure as hell
This guy was coming up to me
He said, “who am I and
Who are you and who are we?
What’s our situation do
We have some time for us?”
I said, I was not exactly
Waiting for the bus
He said, “if you’re going
Somewhere can I come along?”
I said, “keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone”

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone

stripes

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Woah, woah, woah, woah

You were lyin’ there with nothing on
But a goofy little grin and a platinum blonde
I can’t believe you’d do that on our bed
I got a pistol and I got a bullet
And a pissed off finger just’a itchin’ to pull it
The only thing keepin’ me from losin’ my head

Is I hate stripes and orange ain’t my color
And if I squeeze that trigger tonight
I’ll be wearin’ one or the other
There’s no crime of passion
Worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes

Woah, woah, woah

I could fall in love with the prison guard
I could sell cigarettes in the prison yard
Don’t think hard time would be that hard on me
I could pick up trash on the side of the road
But I’d die if I saw someone I know
It ain’t the chains – it’s the clothes that’s stoppin’ me

I hate stripes and orange ain’t my color
And if I squeeze that trigger tonight
I’ll be wearin’ one or the other
There’s no crime of passion
Worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes

Oh, and one shot ain’t worth a bad mugshot
God knows I wouldn’t be caught holdin’ up a number
While the whole town’s starin’ at the picture
In the paper of me wearin’ stripes

There’s no crime of passion
Worth a crime of fashion

The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes

Orange ain’t my color
And if I squeeze that trigger tonight
I’ll be wearin’ one or the other
There’s no crime of passion
Worth a crime of fashion
The only thing savin’ your life
Is that I don’t look good in orange and I hate stripes

Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah

my eyes

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

HORRIBLE
Any dolt with half a brain
Can see that humankind has gone insane
To the point where I don’t know
If I’ll upset the status quo
If I throw poison in the water main

Listen close to everybody’s heart
And hear that breaking sound
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
And crashing to the ground

I cannot believe my eyes
How the world’s filled with filth and lies
But it’s plain to see
Evil inside of me is on the rise

PENNY
Look around
We’re living with the lost and found
Just when you feel you’ve almost drowned
You find yourself on solid ground
And you believe

There’s good in everybody’s heart
Keep it safe and sound
With hope, you can do your part
To turn a life around

I cannot believe my eyes
Is the world finally growing wise?
‘Cause it seems to me
Some kind of harmony
Is on the rise

HORRIBLE (overlapping with Penny below)
Anyone with half a brain
Could spend their whole life howling in pain
‘Cause the dark is everywhere
And Penny doesn’t seem to care
That soon the dark in me is all that will remain

Listen close to everybody’s heart
And hear that breaking sound
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
And crashing to the ground

I cannot believe my eyes
How the world’s filled with filth and lies
But it’s plain to see
Evil inside of me is on the rise

PENNY
Take it slow
He looks at me and seems to know
The things that I’m afraid to show
And suddenly I feel this glow
And I believe

There’s good in everybody’s heart
Keep it safe and sound
With hope, you can do your part
To turn a life around

I cannot believe my eyes
How the world’s finally growing wise
And it’s plain to see
Rapture inside of me is on the rise

I’m sorry if I seem uninterested
Or I’m not listenin’ or I’m indifferent
Truly, I ain’t got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it
But really I would rather be at home all by myself
Not in this room with people who don’t even
Care about my well-being
I don’t dance, don’t ask, I don’t need a boyfriend
So you can go back, please enjoy your party, I’ll be here
Somewhere in the corner under clouds of marijuana
With this boy who’s hollering I can hardly hear
Over this music I don’t listen to and I don’t wanna get with you
So tell my friends that I’ll be over here

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can’t wait till we can break up outta here

Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this,
An anti-social pessimist, but usually I don’t mess with this
And I know you mean only the best and
Your intentions aren’t to bother me
But honestly I’d rather be
Somewhere with my people we can kick it and just listen
To some music with the message (like we usually do)
And we’ll discuss our big dreams
How we plan to take over the planet
So pardon my manners, I hope you’ll understand it
I’ll be here
Not there in the kitchen with the girl
Who’s always gossiping about her friends
So tell them I’ll be here
Right next to the boy who’s throwing up ’cause
He can’t take what’s in his cup no more
Oh God why am I here?

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can’t wait till we can break up outta here

Hours later congregating next to the refrigerator
Some girl’s talking ’bout her haters
She ain’t got none
How did it ever come to this?
I shoulda never come to this
So holla at me, I’ll be in the car when you’re done
I’m standoffish, don’t want what you’re offering
And I’m done talking, awfully sad it had to be that way
So tell my people when they’re ready that I’m ready
And I’m standing by the TV with my beanie low
Yo, I’ll be over here

Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here oh oh oh
I ask myself what am I doing here?
Oh oh oh here oh oh oh here
And I can’t wait till we can break up outta here

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

rather be

Friday, September 5th, 2014

ft. Jess Glynne

We’re a thousand miles from comfort,
We have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me,
There’s no place I rather be.
I would wait forever,
Exulted in the scene
As long as I am with you,
My heart continues to beat

With every step we take,
Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually
We’re different and the same,
Gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

If you gave me a chance, I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be, oh oh

We staked out on a mission
To find our inner peace
Make it everlasting
So nothing’s incomplete
It’s easy being with you,
Sacred simplicity
As long as we’re together,
There’s no place I’d rather be

With every step we take,
Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually
We’re different and the same,
Gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

If you gave me a chance, I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be

When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
Be, oh
Be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be, be
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

If you gave me a chance, I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
No, no, no, no place I rather be
When I am with you, there’s no place I rather be
