Laughing

I wake up, I'm staring at the clock
My belly hurts and my head is like a rock
I get up to see what I can see
Furthest I got was my black and white TV
Eyewitness News brought to you at noon
Oh my God, guess I got up too soon

Because Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
All because of you
All because of you

I didn't mean to wear this disguise
But I can't stand the look in my eyes
Oh I didn't mean to lie
I was doing what I thought was right
Come on, walk right down the line
You'll be walking till the end of time

Because oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
All because of you
All because of you

Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
All because of you
All because of you

Just the Way You Are

I'm in love because I know you
And I'm sorry I don't show you
And if I find that you ain't by me
I'm afraid no one will know the things you see

How could you believe in someone sorry sad like me
I know the deal and I thank you anyways
And if you leave you know I'm crawlin' at your feet
You never get weak when I'm leaning hard on you

And I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess that's just the way you are

And all the things that you don't show me
Like when you pretend that you don't know me
I wasted a dime and I can't call you
I'll spend a lifetime if I fall for you

How could you believe in someone sorry sad like me
I know the deal and I thank you anyways
And if you leave you know I'm crawlin' at your feet
You never get weak when I'm leaning hard on you

And I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess that's just the way you are
And I guess that's just the way you are

Hold Me Up
Hold Me Up
Hold Me Up
Hold Me Up

So Outta Line

I heard the floor creak or so I thought
I had my head rubbing on the ceiling
They say that indecision makes one weak
My indecision's suddenly been deepened

One day ain't forever
You'll find your time
You look outside it's snow
Been snow so long you know
Just feel like lettin' go

So outta line

You've worked so hard for everything you've got
Ten minutes later you're a loser
Count your blessings and the ones you love
At this point we beggars can't be choosers

One day ain't forever
You'll find your time
You look outside it's snow
Been snow so long you know
Just feel like lettin' go

So outta line

One day ain't forever
You'll find your time
You look outside it's snow
Been snow so long you know
Just feel like lettin' go

So outta line

One day ain't forever
One day ain't forever

There You Are

Give me a reason now that I can understand
Pick up the pieces now and put them in my hand

I've been up and down for you
My suffering extreme
I fell on my face for you
Now I know what it means

And I self destruct
I close my eyes and then

There you are
There you are
You are
There you are

Yeah you can run out west, forget you know my name
You say you got your shit together, but you ain't got no faith

Method in madness
Now there's madness in my soul
I'd run from the darkness now
I've got no place to go

And I self destruct
I close my eyes and then

There you are
There you are
You are
There you are

There you are
There you are
You are
There you are

There you are
There you are

You Know What I Mean

It's been a long, dark, lonely hall
Between the cracks I can read the scrawl
It's written down in a crooked rhyme
That sold me out before my time

You know but, since then I been back down to the edge
I can't believe the things you never said
I can't explain the words I never found
My whole world should come crashing down

You know, but you can't sell me out with everything you think about

I think back I draw a blank
You know but, there ain't no need to dig the past
You know I, I don't wanna live my life in a day
I ain't got no need for this plastic cage

'Cause you don't think about anything I think about

You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean

Now you know for sure you're alive
Because you, you watched her leave before your eyes
You know I, I'm afraid to say your name
But I ain't afraid to share this blame

Because, you can't sell me out everything you think about

You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean

It's been a long, dark, lonely hall
Between the cracks I can read the scrawl
Find a place that feels like home
You know I, I get some clue to where I'm going

You know, you don't think about anything I think about

You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean

You know what I mean, oh no
You know what I mean, oh
You know what I mean, oh no
You know what I mean

Out of the Red

I ain't go no outfits to pick and choose
So I really ain't got that much to lose
Picture's getting fuzzy and it's stuck on channel 3
And the whole thing looks pretty silly to me

50,000 more and I'm out of the red

Heavy Metal thrash band, it's all a bunch of shit
People trying to name me while I'm trying to do my bit
I ain't got the patience or the time to waste
Call me a rock star you can spit in my face
Gonna take a horse to drag me outta my bed

I'd rather hang with drunks than hang out with myself
Well, the booze is over there take a glass off the shelf
If you ain't had enough by tomorrow at noon
we're gonna place a call to the Boneyard Crew
Went to sleep at home and woke up in a shed
Oh … son of a bitch!

Never Take The Place of Your Man

It was only last June when her old man ran away
She couldn't stop cryin', she knew he was gone to stay
10:35 on a lonely Friday night
She was standin' by the fire - unh - she was lookin' alright

I asked her if she wanted to dance and she said
All she wanted was a good man who wanted to know if I thought I was qualified

I said "Baby don't waste your time
I know what's on your mind
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I can never take the place of your man"

It hurt me so bad when I saw the tears in her eyes
She was all he ever wanted and now she wanted to die
He left her with a baby and another one on the way
She couldn't stop cryin' she knew he was gone to stay

She asked me if we couldn't be friends and I said
Oh honey baby that's OK you know and I know, know, know you wouldn't be satisfied

I said "Baby don't waste your time
And I know what's on your mind
I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man"

I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man

I may be qualified for a one night stand
But I could never take the place of your man

La la la oh oh Whoa
Never take the place of your man
That's all I need girl
Is a one night, one night, one night stand
I don't wanna be like a steak in your mind
Oh girl if you need a friend I'm there by your side
Sha la la la sha la la

Sha la la la sha la la

Hey

Robby: I thought about you just last Saturday
John: My voice got cracked I didn't know what to say
Robby: Down in the shade or maybe in the sun
John: And if you need it I think I got one

John: Where are you
Robby: And what's on your mind?
John: Where are you
Robby: Am I wasting my time?
John: Where are you
Robby: And what's on you mind?
Both: I just want to know if I'm wasting my time

John: I snuck out of work to see her smile
Robby: I'll hold her hostage for a little while
John: I wrote a letter I thought I'd let you know
Robby: I'm right behind you any time you go

John: Where are you
Robby: And what's on your mind?
John: Where are you
Robby: Am I wasting my time?
John: Where are you
Robby: And what's on you mind?
Both: I just want to know if I'm wasting my time

Robby: My mind got busy around 3 a.m. or so
John: Crawled in you room through the back window
Robby: Hoped when you woke up you wouldn't be too mad
John: I hope I never wake up your old man

John: Where are you
Robby: And what's on your mind?
John: Where are you
Robby: Am I wasting my time?
John: Where are you
Robby: And what's on you mind?
Both: I just want to know if I'm wasting my time

On Your Side

I'm on a mission baby
I'm not hearing what you're saying
Stop preaching at me now

I'm not a revelation
Superstar or new sensation
I'm just hiding away my frowns

Oh no..

We don't see eye to eye
On your side
I'm on your side
With a smile and a sigh
On your side
I'm on your side

5 a.m. I shut my eyes
Then my worries tranquilized
Don't think the morning comes too soon

If I don't see the morning
That's OK they're pretty boring
See you tomorrow afternoon

Oh No..

We don't see eye to eye
On your side
I'm on your side
With a smile and a sigh
On your side
I'm on your side

We don't see eye to eye
On your side
I'm on your side
With a smile and a sigh
On your side
I'm on your side

You're living in a trailer
Friends all think that you're a failure
But are you thinking for yourself?

You read the Sunday paper
Wife's pissed off 'cause you ain't laid her
Rolling pennies for your wealth

Me Too..

We don't see eye to eye
On your side
I'm on your side
With a smile and a sigh
On your side
I'm on your side

We don't see eye to eye
On your side
I'm on your side
With a smile and a sigh
On your side
I'm on your side

We don't see eye to eye
On your side
I'm on your side
With a smile and a sigh
On your side
I'm on your side

22 Seconds

I feel so important today and I wish I didn't
I feel so important today and I wish I didn't

Was I a little off key?

Kevin's Song

No words to this instrumental masterpiece


Know My Name

What kind of situation
Have I brought upon myself
Some kind of bad reaction
Blamed it all on someone else

Oh well

Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before
Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before

You got me laughing at me
Laughing all by myself
I had a drink on Friday
Heard the news from someone else

Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before
Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before

You got me running…
Running far from myself
You got me coming…
Coming home to someone else

Oh well…

Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before
Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before

I tried to find the truth but every word I had came back (?)

Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before
Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before

Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before…
Don't pretend like you know my name
'Cause I ain't never seen you before

Million Miles Away

Friday night, I'd just got back
I had my eyes shut, was dreaming about the past

I thought about you while the radio played
Should have got loaded but for some reason I stayed

I started drifting to a different place
I realized I was falling off the face of the world
And there was nothing there to bring us back

'Cause you're a million miles away
A million miles away
And there's nothing there to bring us back today
Today…oh no

I took a ride and I went downtown
The streets were empty, there was no one around
I went to places that we used to go
Seen all the places that we used to know

I'm at the wrong end of the looking glass
I'm trying to hold on to the hands of the past and you
And there's nothing there to bring us back

'Cause you're a million miles away
A million miles away
And there's nothing there to bring us back today
Today…oh no

'Cause you're million miles away
A million miles away
Just a million miles away
A million miles away
And there's nothing there to bring us back today
Today…'ay…'ay…oh no…


Two Days In February

Dedicated to chief dog
Take 22, copy 1
And the guy across the street

I hung your picture on the wall…and that's all it is
I break my fingers to make a call…and that's all it is
I know you're living way out west and I don't think that I confessed
Everything I feel

You say you got no faith in things that you can't see
Well I'm sorry I ain't there with you, but you ain't here with me
And I'm down in all my fears
But I ain't cryin' no tears over you

'Cause everything's wrong
Well it's all right
Everything's wrong
Well it's all right

You said that this is crazy, you're a half a world away
Well I'm sitting and I'm thinking but I didn't know what to say
So I said something I can't touch, I always want way too much
Anyway…

'Cause everything's wrong
Well it's all right
Everything's wrong
Well it's all right

I hung your picture on the wall, but that's all it is
I break my fingers to make a call and that's all it is
I know you're living way out west
Don't get me wrong I'm not impressed
With you no more
