The Lucky Strike Girl

Today I know the difference
Today I was wrong
Today I know the difference
Today I'm not that strong
If you go out of my life

Today there were no phone calls
or other things from you
I can't go on without you
Don't you feel the same way, too
If you go out of my life

Today there were no phone calls
or other things from you
I can't go on without you
Don't you feel the same way too
If you go out of my life

Maybe it is time to be alone again
And maybe it is time to go our separate ways
And maybe what we've got ain't never, no never ever gonna die
Never gonna die
If you go out of my life

Today I know the difference
Today I was wrong
Today I know the difference
Maybe I'm not that strong

My Confession

This is my confession of things I've kept inside
Secrets I've tried to hide from you, you never suspected
They've been carefully contained, I've respectfully restrained the truth

But now I can't hide it anymore
I can't deny it anymore
I'm in love with you and I don't care who knows and it shows
that I have wanted you for so long
And now all of my strength is gone
I can't keep these feelings locked up in my soul

So, this is my confession, my heart without disguise
Undressed and open wide to you I've abandoned the protection
That has quietly concealed all that I now reveal to you

For now I can't hide it anymore
I can't deny it anymore
I'm in love with you and I don't care who knows and it shows
For I have wanted you for so long
And now all of my strength is gone
I can't keep these feelings locked up in my soul
So, this is my confession

What ever your reaction I will fearlessly
without a reservation tell you honestly
That I have wanted you for so long
But now all of my strength is gone
I can't keep these feelings locked up in my soul
So, this is my confession

Purple Velvet Roses

Her boyfriend dumped her for another girl
She cried her eyes out in her lonely world
She was just 18 and for all she knew
The man of her dreams just walked out the door

She smoked 'em all and she drank a lot
In her empty room, that was all she got
She lived at night and she slept through the day
Became the talk of the town, she tried to hide away

I'd like some purple velvet roses
Give me some purple velvet roses, please
Sir, can you help me
I'd like some purple velvet roses, please
Sir, can you help me

Now the story goes that she went back to school
Studied for lawyer there and then she sued, sued, sued
all the men who did her wrong
Committing adultery by loving young blondes

I'd like some purple velvet roses
Give me some purple velvet roses, please
Sir, can you help me
I'd like some purple velvet roses, please
Sir, can you help me

Now there is one thing that could cheer her up
That's to visit the local flower shop
She walked straight to the counter there
And this is what she asked the man

I'd like some purple velvet roses
Give me some purple velvet roses, please
Sir, can you help me
I'd like some purple velvet roses, please
Sir, can you help me

Still Do

It's dark and raining outside
On this lonely Sunday night
You're working still, with big tears in your eyes

You think the world has done you wrong
Just wait and love will come along
Then life will be much easier on you

So honey don't be scared
Just look at my evidence
I'm going to be there for you then

I still love you even when it's dark around me
I still love you even when you're mad at me

Every time that you are going home
You say you wanna be alone
And that you don't wanna see me no more

Now don't you act so tough
on this thing that you call love
Please smile and get along 'cause

I still love you even when it's dark around me
I still love you even when you're mad at me

When there are moments in your life
when you have given up and had enough
Just think of me and you will see that

I still love you even when it's dark around me
I still love you even when you're mad at me

I still love you when it's dark outside

Love Me Tonight

The days are so long
And when the evening finally enters the worst is yet to come for me
Because the moon and stars won't let me see the things I wanna see

So I'll turn on the lights
and leave them on just for a moment, so you can see what's going on
Then I'll come back to bed
'Cause it is late and I'm tired and I got this awful pain in my head

And just love me tonight
I wanna feel your arms around me
I wanna be there when you cry
Love me tonight
I wanna be there when you hold me
I wanna be there when you cry, tonight

Now hold me like before
Just lay against me for a while so I can feel your breath once more
If there's something let me know
Just go to sleep so you feel better close your eyes and let it go

And just love me tonight
I wanna feel your arms around me
I wanna be there when you cry
Love me tonight
I wanna be there when you hold me
I wanna be there when you cry, tonight

The moment you awake I 'll be there by your side
Again and again
But if I close my eyes, and we'll sleep through the night
will we make it alright in the morning

For now just love me tonight
I wanna feel your arms around me
I wanna be there when you cry
Love me tonight
I wanna be there when you hold me
I wanna be there when you cry, tonight

I Was Made for Loving You

Tonight I want to give it all to you
In the darkness
There's so much I want to do
And tonight I want to lay it at your feet
Cause girl, I was made for you
And girl, you were made for me

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me

Tonight I want to see it in your eyes
Feel the magic
There's something that drives me wild
And tonight we're gonna make it all come true
Cause girl, you were made for me
And girl I was made for you

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can give it all to you baby
Can you give it all to me

Oh, can't get enough, oh, oh
I can't get enough, oh, oh
I can't get enough

Sick of It All

I'm standing in line for the seventeenth time this day
Its warm, no, it's hot, for this time of May
The man in front is doing nothing at all
Yeah, he's gonna stay there all day

I'm picking my nose and I see what for dinner
I'm bored, broke and dirty and there's shit on my window
The mirror's reflecting a girl, she has more hair than me
Wish I didn't see a mustache to be
Wish I didn't see a mustache to be

Because I'm sick of it all
I'm sick of it all

Why am I standing in this line
Why am I wasting all this time
Well, I don't have anything else left to do

I'm standing in line for the very last time today
Its warm, no, it's hot, for this time of May

Because I'm sick of it all
I'm sick of it all
I'm sick of it all

No More Fuel

I'm driving again
Don't know where to
I'm driving again
Any which way from you

I feel my head is spinning
It's got nothing else to do
I'm looking in the distance
Any which way but yours

Wish I'd ran out of fuel
Wish my motor would stop
Now my right foot is speeding
It will never stop

Once there was a time
that I didn't drive so fast
but in a while my motor blows
It wouldn't have happened in the past

Wish I'd ran out of fuel
Wish my motor would stop
Now my right foot is speeding
It will never stop

Is there somebody that can help me
I think I've had enough

No more fuel
I feel like dying again
No more fuel
Will this road come to an end

No more fuel
I feel like dying again
No more fuel
Will this road come to an end

Well, I'm driving again
I'm driving again
I'm driving again

For the Light in Your Eyes

For the light in your eyes I will hold you
For the light in your eyes I will take on your name
For the light in your eyes I will scream in silence
So I'll gather my thoughts
They can go up in flames

For a moment I was almost sleeping
For a moment caught up in a bad dream
For a moment I was nearly drowning
And woke up at last with only wet feet
And woke up at last with only wet feet

The nights are so long
And I can't find the state of mind I'm searching for
So I won't be afraid anymore
And I will

I will search for the time I have patience
I will search for the time I'll go on again
I will search for the time that I'll be able
To laugh and to cry for the time that goes by
For the time that goes by

The nights are so long
And I can't find the state of mind I'm searching for
So I won't be afraid anymore

For the light in your eyes I will hold you
For the light in your eyes I will take on your name
For the light in your eyes I will scream in silence
So I'll gather my thoughts

The nights are so long
And I can't find the state of mind I'm searching for
So I won't be afraid anymore

The nights are so long

Black Summer Sun

I was thinking of the words that she once said
About us driving in a Chevy in a no-man's-land long ago
And I remember how we laughed and passed the time
Recalling places that we went and people that we've known

Now the situation changed, our dreams have died
The endless summer that we shared is so long gone
There're only pieces of our lives seen as broken glass
Still the memories appear as I look in the black summer sun

So I'm staring at my black summer sun
'Cause there'll come a time it'll shine no more
There will come a time that we're no longer young, no longer young

The thought of you and me driving on a dusty road
With no soul around, just go up in smoke once more
Gives me the courage and the strength that I need to believe
that the times we shared in my mind were so real, were so real

And I'm staring at my black summer sun
'Cause there'll come a time it'll shine no more
There will come a time that we're no longer young, no longer young

For now I will say what's been said before
If you have your love, you don't want more
But if this love won't last, you'll get a second chance
to find your way and make it through some day

So, I'm staring at my black summer sun
'Cause there'll come a time it'll shine no more
There will come a time that we're no longer young, no longer young

So, I'm staring at my black summer sun
'Cause there'll come a time it'll shine no more
There will come a time that we're no longer young, no longer young

Don't Go

Pale, like a white moon shining
through the trees
When you look at me
Your heart so close
You're skin is melting in my hands again

I want to stay in your loving arms
As long as you want it
I want you so bad
So when you're near me
I won't let you, no I won't let you go

Is there something that I've said
to make you so upset
Is there one thing that I don't know
'Cause I don't want you to go

I will tell you the reasons why
You should stay with me
I'll have to try to make a difference
For the time that we have
I hope it will last

Now if that day comes along
That you don't carry on
I'll be the luckiest man alive
With you by my side

I want to stay in your loving arms
As long as you want it
I want you so bad
So when you're near me
I won't let you go

Leave Me Alone

Leave a message when you leave
Leave a message at the door
I'll keep my fingers crossed
I'll keep my fingers crossed once more

You don't have to say that you're sorry
You don't have to be alone

I'll be home on time
I'll be home on time, I know
Don't wait up for me
Don't wait up for me, just don't

So when your dreams come and take you away
You don't have to be afraid

Leave me, leave me alone
Leave me, leave me alone
Close your eyes once more
You won't be scared I'm sure

Why are you so upset
Think of all you've had
Keep your head up high
And keep your dreams alive

Leave me, leave me alone
Leave me, leave me alone
Don't be scared no more
Close your eyes once more

Leave me, leave me alone
Leave me, leave me alone

Heart Half Empty

There's some left-over wine in the cupboard
Not a half a glass for the road
There's a toast to the time we were lovers
Then I'll go

Should I laugh or should I cry
Love you, hate you, live or die

Is my heart full or half empty
Is our love like the wine in this glass
You drink like there's no tomorrow
So sure it'll always last

Your bags are all packed in the hallway
The boxes are stacked on the lawn
You kiss me goodbye just like always
And you're gone

Trembling hands and nerves of steel
Someone tell me what to feel

Is my heart half full or half empty
Is our love like the wine in this glass
You drink like there's no tomorrow
So sure it'll always last

Will the memories stay sweet as they linger
or the bitterness stay on my tongue
Is my heart half full of the love you gave me
Or my heart half empty 'cause you love is…

Is my heart half full or half empty
Is our love like the wine in this glass
Is my heart half full of the love you gave me
Or my heart half empty 'cause you love is gone
