Lyrics

You got a dream and no one sees it but you. You got ambition, but they don't have a clue. Nobody knows what's happening in your head. Don't wanna listen to the phonies and fakes. They're telling you that you don't have what it takes. They don't perceive that, spiritually, they're dead. The doubts surround you. They stand up in your way. The skeptics hound you And scoff at what you say. We'll see who's laughing when you make it to the top. You'll be a Huge Rock Star. They'll see your shows and buy your music in the shops Because of who you are. So, don't let their wisecracking get to you. You'll be their hero someday. You'll get satisfaction When your band's the main attraction All the way. You're busy working on the sound of the band. You're getting angry, 'cause they don't understand. This ain't a trifle. This is your way of life. You got this far and now you're ready to play. Ain't gonna stop until you've gone all the way. Ready to go through any amount of strife. To be the best is No ordinary task. For most, success is Too much in life to ask. We'll see who's laughing when you make it to the top. You'll be a Huge Rock Star. They'll see your shows and buy your music in the shops Because of who you are. If someone says that your music stinks, Don't let that stand in your way. Soon you'll be acheivin' All the things that you believed in Yesterday. Silly people scoff. It's no surprise. When the road gets rough, their gumption dies. Many people have their dreams, But seldom see them through. Troubles set you back. It's hard to stay the course. The power lies in you. Put on your seat belt. A bumpy ride awaits. Don't mind the heat felt, 'cause soon you'll celebrate. We'll see who's laughing when you make it to the top. You'll be a Huge Rock Star. They'll see your shows and buy your music in the shops Because of who you are. So, don't let their wisecracking get to you. You'll be their hero someday. You'll get satisfaction When your band's the main attraction All the way. We'll see who's laughing when you make it to the top. You'll be a Huge Rock Star.

Lyrics

It was a hot September night. The moon was out. The stars were in sight. You wore a light blue top and jeans. I went and asked you to dance, didn't know where you'd been. You laid it down and shook your hips, But when I tried to reach for your lips, I saw your love was all pretend. You only boogied with me to get down with my friend. Well, Hit the Bricks, now, baby, 'cause you took it too far. I thought you were cool, but now I see what you are. Yeah, Hit the Bricks, now, honey, 'cause I've had it to here. You strung me along, so now I'm makin' it clear. I would have put my head in a vice To be your lover yesterday, But now those feelings have died, and love is turning the tide away. Yeah, yeah, Hit the Bricks. I gave you everything I had. No sacrifice too hard or too bad. I tried with all my mind and soul, But it was never enough, and now, there's nowhere to go, And tell me what can one man do? How much am I supposed to go through? You had my heart served on a plate. I would have died for your love, but tonight it's too late. Well, Hit the Bricks, now, baby, 'cause you took it too far. I thought you were cool, but now I see what you are. Yeah, Hit the Bricks, now, honey, 'cause I've had it to here. You strung me along, so now I'm makin' it clear. I would have put my head in a vice To be your lover yesterday, But now those feelings have died, and love is turning the tide away. Yeah, yeah, Hit the Bricks. Well, now, you're staring back at me, So confident, expecting to see A man who can't remember when You made a mess of his head, so you can do it again, But now, you're in my life once more, Convinced that a reunion's in store. You think I'd give you one more chance? The way you shattered my dreams, you hardly merit a glance. Well, Hit the Bricks, now, baby, 'cause you took it too far. I thought you were cool, but now I see what you are. Yeah, Hit the Bricks, now, honey, 'cause I've had it to here. You strung me along, so now I'm makin' it clear. I would have put my head in a vice To be your lover yesterday, But now those feelings have died, and love is turning the tide away. Yeah, yeah…

Lyrics

You tore my world apart and left me flat Without one word to say. You let me think that you’d be coming back. I held my breath and prayed. But when some time had passed I finally learned That you were gone forever, babe, and I’d been burned. I cried, but now I’m standing tall again. I’ve grown from yesterday. If you ain’t coming to apologize, Then turn around and kiss my ass goodbye. I should forgive you, but revenge is sweet, So pack your bags and take a walk down Humble Street. Humble Street. When I accepted you were gone for good, I turned my life around. I tried to be compliant when I could, But now I stand my ground. If someone hurts me, I will not forget, And when I hurt them back, well, I will not regret it. Don’t tell me stories of the love we had. It’s buried in the ground. If you could see what I was going through, I know damn well you’d sing a different tune. You may be sorry, but it’s not enough To quell the pain of unrequited love. (repeat Chrous 1) I’ve tried to put the very thought of you Behind me, but it’s hard. I know inside it’s what I ought to do To let the healing start. There’ll be a time when I can let it go, But that won’t be today, because you hurt me so. I don’t believe that I can pardon you, The way you bruised my heart. (repeat Chorus 2) (repeat Chorus 1)

Lyrics

Sometimes a good thing is right in our hands, but we don't perceive it's true. That's how it was when our story began and our intimacy was new. I thought I'd spend my life alone, but I didn't count on you. Suddenly fate brought the firmament into view. All of my friends said the key to success is to know when to compromise. Low expectations mean no discontent and no need to apologize. But I'm glad I kept my standards high. That's how I wound up with you. Took me a long time, but everyone gets their due. You are the sky, my stars, my Sun and Moon. Nobody sees me like you see me, June. I've been rejected, struck out of my senses, and left at a loss for words. Afraid of the future, I put up defenses, but you would not be deterred. Somewhere inside that shell I fashioned, you saw the best in me. A curtain was lifted, revealing our destiny. (repeat chorus) You'll be the first in everything I do. I don't exist unless I'm part of you. I never thought that I could feel. I didn't know the heart can heal, and now that I see your love's for real, I say: (repeat chorus) I understand. This is just a beginning. There's so much that lies beyond. But I know as long as the planet keeps spinning, that nothing can break this bond. Ultimately, we'll reach the place where two lovers join as one. Love is a journey, and our road has just begun.

Lyrics

Well, the man who stands before you isn't perfect. He's like any other human with a need for love and tenderness, an empty space inside you can illumine. He may not be good looking with complexion golden brown. He isn't rich or famous or the smartest guy in town. If pretty boys are what you want, you'd better walk away, 'cause all I have to offer's standing here with you today. Just look at my face if your love is based on what you can see. If that's your concern, then you'll never learn The Man I Can Be. You can call it being tactful, but your vamping is a slight to my good nature, and a snub is still a snub with all your doublespeak, despite the nomenclature. You knew when you laid eyes on me that I was not "the one". You could have told me frankly, but instead you had your fun. You strung me all the way without a thought to how I feel. You took what you could take and now there's nothing to conceal. (chorus 1) If you take a chance, I'll give you romance, if you just believe, but if you'd prefer some diamonds and fur, it's best that you leave. What matters in relationships is nothing more than how the person treats you. A pretty face, a perfect smile may captivate you for a while, but when you take away the facade, what's lying underneath? I tried to be up front with you, but you were not the same. Your words were full of promise, but your heart could not be tamed. You set the bar so high that no mere man came even close, and no one met your standards. Now your dreams are comatose. (chorus 1) (chorus 2)

Lyrics

Every time I see you, my thoughts are all tangled. I can't see anything clear. Try to say hello, but I feel like I'm strangled. I'm tongue-tied, shakin' from fear. You're the only woman who can fluster me. Anybody else and I'm relaxed and free. You got something special that makes me wanna know you better. Can I buy you a drink? All I gotta hear is the sound of your sweetness, and I'm knocked outta my shoes. Beauty, charm, and style in astounding completeness, it's more than I can refuse. Doesn't matter when I have a lousy day. Being near to you can chase the blues away. You got certain qualities. That's why I'm enamored with you. Let me buy you a drink. Just when I had given up the search for someone true, throwing in the towel and accepting defeat, celibate and somber, then I met with You could see inside of the fence I was building to keep me safe from distress. Snug inside a shell in a cage I was gilding, I had no hope of success. Then I saw you smile and now I have to know everything about you, girl, from head to toe. Tell me all your feelings and show me what's important to you while I buy you a drink. Never thought that I would have the guts to see this through. Somewhere deep inside me I collected my nerve, made it to your table, sat right down with You said everything that you meant, without speaking, and left no room for mistakes. Giving me the signals I went so long seeking with nitwits, phonies and fakes. Thinking I would never find a love to last, waiting, but it's finally paying off at last. Funny how we find something just when we stop looking for it. Let me buy you a drink. Let me buy you a drink.

Lyrics

Once upon a time, a boy lived In another world. Everything was clear and simple, Then he met a girl. Suddenly, a shroud came over All he thought was true. Everywhere the fog expanded And the darkness grew. When at last the skies had cleared, Innocence had disappeared. Now a rusty man is standing, Planning his attack. Long ago, you'd be forgiven, But you hurt him; he's Hurting You Right Back. When the shock of cruel rejection Faded into grey, His resolve began to harden, Growing day by day. He believed a time would come when They would meet again, So he lived in preparation, And he would not bend. Then, one day, that moment came, Anger blazing in a flame. All the pain she made him suffer Nearly made him crack, But, instead, he lived to tell her, "You hurt me. I'm Hurting You Right Back." Did it make you feel good to see a man on his knees? Did your pride make you deaf to the sound of his pleas? Well, the man gave you everything he ever possessed, But you thought he was a fake and put his love to the test. I wonder if you knew just how unhappy he felt When he sobered up and realized the hand he was dealt? You said you were an angel, but your heart, it was black. You destroyed his self-assurance; now he's Hurting You Right Back! Many years have come and gone since That eventful day. Now he's put the past behind him, And it stays that way. She resides beyond the mist in Some forgotten past Growing dim as grains of sand move Through the hourglass. Now he takes a different view When he meets somebody new. Many things were said that evening That he won't retract. If you disregard his feelings, He'll respond by Hurting You Right Back.

Lyrics

I've watched the fire for me go out in you. We said goodbye to all the love we thought was true. The pain I felt for you was meaningless. How we held on for this long, I can only guess. We thought it was invincible, Lasting through eternity. Feelings change. It's understandable. Still, I want what used to be. Breathless, ever in my heart, Lost in your attraction, Now we've grown apart. Breathless, limitless and free, Memories of you and me. Back then we thought it was achievable, Lived in the hope that love was not impossible. We were content to snuggle side by side, But still our deepest dreams remain unsatisfied. We came so close to happiness, Then we watched it disappear. Disappointment caused from loneliness - That's our only souvenir. (repeat chorus) We tasted beauty, then it passed away Like a sunset In a painting On a wall in A museum. We were abandoned like a castaway. How’s it make you feel? How’s it make you feel? Breath away. We travel every path there is Seeking what we had before, Trapped inside by doubts and cowardice, Waiting for the tears in store.

Lyrics

Fighting constantly, but no one ever wins. Never try to see the good we have within. We could face the world in fellowship and song if we'd all just Get Along. Different words we use for things which seem so clear. Many names we give to He who placed us here. Someone disagrees, the opposition's strong. God, it's hard to Get Along. We make our path in life, struggling along the way. Sometimes, we're racked with strife. Everyone needs help someday. Only animals should make their home in dirt. Only humans know humility and hurt. If we have the means to right this country's wrongs, when will people Get Along? (instrumental of verse) It's hard to find a way to see a different point of view, but there may come a day that nonconformist might be you. Some go on and on, and never earn their keep. Some say just a word, and find themselves in deep. If the world was mute, I wouldn't sing this song. Everyone would Get Along. Now's the time to Get Along. Can't we all just Get Along?

Lyrics

He was known for his honesty, admired for his integrity. Told you what he felt inside was true. You knew that you could count on him, learn from his self discipline, hear him talk and change your point of view. Will their praise be as lavish, reflections as profound when off into the afterworld I'm bound. Will they say I was special, or will they make a sound When They Put My Body in the Ground? People say he loved a joke, paid attention when he spoke. Everyone enjoyed his repartee. Always had a quip or two. Observations fun but true. Made you laugh and brightened up your day. (repeat chorus) Will they kneel at my casket, tears of lamentation flowing down? Will they reveal pain or mask it When They Put My Body in the Ground? People came from far and wide, every single walk of life, gathered here to bid their friend adieu. Up and down the family tree, some who knew him socially took the time to give the man his due. (instrumental) I am not perfection yet. Lose my temper, get upset. Still I try to keep my conscience clean. In the bedroom, down the hall, there's a mirror on my wall. Up to now I've liked what I have seen.
