LUCKY DAY

why...why is the sky so blue
why...why am i blue too
no matter how i work it
no matter what i say
nothing ever seems to break my way
maybe this will be my lucky day

why...why is it always me
why...why can’t i just break free
how can this keep happening
something’s gotta change
nothing seems to ever break my way
maybe this will be my lucky day

oh when i look around
ooh in this whole damn town
there’s nothing here that doesn’t bring me down
but hey who cares what i say

day after day, my life goes by
night after night i wonder why
why do i still believe in all these fairy tales
someday soon, my luck has got to change
maybe this will be my lucky day

LOVE WILL ONLY WRECK YOUR LIFE  

love will only hurt your feelings
love will only make you late
love will only wreck your weekend
love is tempting fate
love will only spend your money faster
love will only bring you tears
love is such an inconvenience
and it can last for years

but if love will only wreck my life
what am i to do
i’m about to make the same mistakes
cause baby
i’m in love with you

love will only steal your independence
love will burn and crash
love will be the end of all your friendships
love can cause a rash
love will only make life more confusing
love it’s never fair
love is such an irritation
and that’s just when it’s there

but if love will only wreck my life
what am i to do
if the rational mind says run don’t walk
then baby
ooh i guess we’re screwed

love can only break your heart now baby
love can only wreck your life
love can only give you indigestion
and keep you up at night
aw honey that’s alright

love will only wreck your life
love will only wreck your life
love will only wreck your life    
and keep you up at night

THE BREAK-UP SONG

lately when i look you in the eye
you turn away
and it makes me wonder why
if you don’t love me anymore
why don’t you try the door?
that’s what it’s for

nothing lasts forever it just can’t
if pyramids can crumble
how could our love last
if this love isn’t gonna grow
i gotta let you know
i’m good to go

let’s skip the messy break-up
the unsuccessful make-ups
we tried together darlin’ oh
let’s try alone

we don’t have to act like things are fine
you can go just your way baby
and i’ll go mine
if you’ve got better things to do
then go find somebody who
wants to do that too

let’s skip the messy break-up
the unsuccessful make-ups
we tried together darlin’ oh
let’s try alone.

baby i was fine before i met you
and it may take me a while
to totally forget you
but hey if you’re done with me
i’m effen done with you
so toodeloo
let’s skip the messy break-up
the unsuccessful make-ups
we tried together darlin’ oh
let’s try alone

LET'S WASTE ANOTHER YEAR

i don’t mind if you waste my time
‘cause time is all i’ve got to waste, dear
and if sometime you’re just passin’ by
maybe you could waste some time with me
just sit right here
as i waste another year

decline and fall, it’s not so bad at all
we can resist it for a while, dear
but leaves turn brown and clocks wind down
it’s time to waste some time with me
i’m glad you’re here
let’s waste another year

let’s waste another year
i’m glad you’re here

time goes by but we can’t go by time
cause time will just betray us in the end, dear
as daylight fades into shades of grey
why not waste some time with me?
just grab a beer
we’ll waste another year

if i could do what i most want to
i’d just be wasting time with you
i’m glad you’re here
let’s waste another year

TELL ME WHY

kenny where have you been
are you at it again?
are you looking for trouble with your so-called friends
are you pushing an edge?
are you crossing a line?
the fear is working overtime
what will it take to change your life?
tell me why

kenny why can’t you see
what this is doing to me
every time i look, you disappear
like you don’t wanna be seen
are you lost in the dark?
are you breaking my heart?
are you going where you shouldn’t go?
what will it will take to change your life?
tell me why
tell me why

i can still see your smile
i can still see your boyish smile
but after all of this time
i can’t see the child i thought was mine
tell me why
tell me why

are you pushing an edge?
are you crossing a line?
the fear is working overtime
what it will take to change your life?
tell me why

it’s nearly 3 am
phone’s ringing again
we all start out just perfect
and then things change

GO WHERE WE GOTTA GO

they don’t see, see what we see
they don’t hear a word that we say
they don’t care, care if we’re right
but we know, know what we know
and i’ll go
go where i gotta go

they don’t think, think what we think
they just do whatever they want
they don’t feel, feel what we feel
but we know, know what we know
and we’ll go
go where we gotta go

we gotta go where we can be happy
go where we can be free
go where trouble can’t follow
and we’ll go
go where we gotta go

don’t try and stop us
save the emotion
don’t bother to fight us
your weapons won’t work
everything’s changing
ready or not
and we know, know what we know
and we go
go where we gotta go
oh, go where we gotta go

FOOL TO FALL

i was all alone
i didn’t know what to do
so i put my faith in you
i was a fool
but i can’t put all the blame on you
ooh-oo-ooh deep down i always knew      
i was a fool
such a fool
to fall for you

wrong decisions never turn out right
and i was wrong when i chose you
but i tried
you can’t deny how hard i tried
ooh-oo-ooh what was i supposed to do
walk away and find somebody new?
i was a fool
such a fool
to fall for you

people warned me open up your eyes
but i’d already opened up my heart
nothing from that moment made a difference
we were jinxed from the start

you say just hang in there it gets better
but i don’t think that’s true
it just gets old
and who knows how much longer i can hold
oo-oo-ooh i was a fool
such a fool to waste my love on you
i was a fool
such a fool
to fall for you

I SHOULD LEAVE YOU

everywhere i look i see your smile
yeah everything gets old after a while
and everywhere i turn i hear your voice
trust me darlin’ it’s not by choice

and if you don’t love me
why do you keep me baby
why won’t you relinquish control
and i should leave you
but i won’t

well i got you and you got me
that’s as close to nothin’ as two can be
when i feel up darlin’ you feel down
i’d reach for the stars but where’s the ground
    
and if you don’t love me
why do you keep me, baby
why won’t you relinquish control
if you don’t love me
why do you keep me hangin’ on
i should hate you but i don’t
and i should leave you
but i won’t

we’re two of a kind, the broken kind
we ask for trouble and guess what we find
all our mistakes just accumulate
and all the good things evaporate

but if you don’t love me
why do you keep me, baby?
why won’t you relinquish control?
if you don’t need me
oh please release me baby
why won’t you ever let me go?
and i should leave you
but i won’t

GONE BY SUNDAY MORNING

please make sure you’re gone by sunday morning
you’ve worn out your welcome for the year
i’m just givin’ you fair warning
i’ll have to call the cops if you’re still here
oh quit your cryin’
nothin’ that you do is going to change my mind
so please stop tryin’
nothin’ in your bag of tricks is gonna work this time

all my friends say i should just forget you
but how could i forget someone like you
without you i wouldn’t have my story
of a trusting soul whose true love wasn’t true

oh stop your lying
nothing that you say is gonna change my mind
and all your whining?
you know you’re not ever gonna toe the line

someday you will have to face your problems
till then there’s not much more i can say
but i won’t make the same mistakes i used to
i got new mistakes i gotta make

so please make sure you’re gone by sunday morning
you’ve worn out your welcome for the year
i’m just givin’ you fair warning
because i’ll have to call the cops if you’re still here
i’ll have to call the cops if you’re still here

REINFORCEMENTS


we heard the warnings
we didn’t listen
we never guessed this would come true
now it’s brother versus brother     
sister versus sister
and if you’d tell me, mister
what are we to do?

who will send us reinforcements
who will answer when we call
who will send us reinforcements
who will save us after all
who will catch us if we fall

we feel the pressure
it just keeps rising
we hold the line but there’s no relief
soon winter will be coming
darkness will be falling
and who will hear us calling
in this our time of need

who will send us reinforcements
who will answer when we call
who will send us reinforcements
who will save us after all
who will catch us if we fall

but if there are no reinforcements
if no one answers when we call
i will be your reinforcement
i will catch you if you fall
and love will save us after all
