Pure Insanity


You better watch out in the dark
Be careful on the street
There's lot's of crazy people
Out there packing heat
It's insanity
Pure insanity

Everybody's angry
Can't even tell you why
There is something in the air
And you can not deny
It's insanity
Pure insanity

You can't run away from all the madness
It will follow you wherever you may go
I used to think that love was all you need
Now I don't know

There's screaming on the left
There's shouting on the right
And every conversation
Ends up in a fight
It's insanity
Pure insanity

It's insanity
Pure insanity

It's insanity
Pure insanity

The lunatics have taken the asylum
The idiots are running the whole show
I used to think that love was all you need
Now I don't know

We're drowning in a flood
Of misery and pain
We praise the Lord above
Even though he made it rain
It's insanity
Pure insanity

It's insanity
Pure insanity

Everything is upside down
Everything is upside down
It's insanity
Pure insanity



Argyle Avenue


On Argyle Avenue
When we were young and love was new
On Argyle Avenue
Life was sweet for me and you too

A white picket fence and an unlocked door
Cigarette burns on the kitchen floor
A orb in the front yard, second hand
An elephant foot umbrella stand

It was like a dream come true

On Argyle Avenue
The summer of 2002
On Argyle Avenue
Life was sweet for me and you too

A white picket fence and an unlocked door
Sea shells stolen from a souvenir store
Toothpicks sticking out of ice cube trays
Purple Rain and Purple Haze

It was like a dream come true
On Argyle Avenue
On Argyle Avenue

A white picket fence and an unlocked door
Flashlights flicker all along the shore
A heart shaped crack in the bedroom wall
I'd wait for your footsteps down the hall

'Cause every night that summer you came to me
And nothing's ever been the same for me
It was like a dream come true
On Argyle Avenue

Argyle Avenue
On Argyle Avenue



Going to London


I'm going to London to forget about you
Prove to myself that I can live without you
I'll meet the Queen and maybe I'll get knighted
I'll have a party and you won't be invited

Oh-oh, I gotta run
Oh-oh, I'm going to London

I'm going to London if I have to swim there
A whole new chapter of my life can begin there
And I don't care if it's dark and gloomy
If I forget the shit that you did to me

Oh-oh, I gotta run
Oh-oh, I'm going to London

I'm going to London in a big jet airplane
'Cause if I stick around I might go insane
I'll hang around with all the lords and ladies
And maybe pop stars from the 1980s

Oh-oh, I gotta get out, gotta get out
Gotta get out of here
Oh-oh, I gotta get out, gotta get out
Gotta get out of here

Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Oh-oh, I'm going to London



It'll Take a Lifetime


I'm none too happy 'bout how things worked out
I'm filled with misery, regret and doubt
But what am I to do
It'll take a lifetime to get over you

They say that time will take away my pain
In a little while I will forget your name
But the reverse is true
It'll take a lifetime to get over you

It'll take a lifetime to get over you

Over
I may never get over
I may never get over
Over you

The party's over and the smoke has cleared
Everything I've ever loved has disappeared
And from my point of view
It'll take a lifetime to get over you

It'll take a lifetime to get over you

I'm none too happy 'bout how things worked out
I'm filled with misery, regret and doubt
But what am I to do
It'll take a lifetime to get over you

It'll take a lifetime to get over you
It'll take a lifetime to get over you



Started Out With A Bang


We started out with a bang
Ended up with a whimper
And in between
We had a real good time

We started out with a bang
Ended up with a whimper
And in between
We had a real good time

We laughed, we cried
We felt so satisfied
Then the night turned
Into day

We started out with a bang
Ended up with a whimper
And in between
We had a real good time

We reached the peak
The highest high
We had no where to go
But down

We started out with a bang
Ended up with a whimper
And in between
We had a real good time

We started out with a bang
Ended up with a whimper
And in between
We had a real good time

And in between
We had a real good time
And in between
We had a real good time



King of the USA


I am not English or Australian
I am not Russian or Chinese
I am not an Episcopalian
Though I'm frequently down on my knees

I was not born in 1984
I'm not the last of a dying breed
I may not be the one you're waiting for
But I might be the one that you need

Hey, hey, what can I say
Here I am and here I'll stay
I'm all right, I'm okay
I feel like the king of the USA

When I'm with you

When I'm with you all my worries disappear
And all the bad memories fade
I forget all about the missing years
And the many mistakes I made

I never knew that I didn't know anything
Back when I was a babe in the woods
Because of you I got through so many things
That I never thought that I could

Hey, hey, what can I say
Here I am and here I'll stay
I'm all right, I'm okay
I feel like the king of the USA

Now I've got bills that I can't pay
I don't care about 'em' anyway
Because I'm all right, and I'm okay
I feel like the king of the USA

When I'm with you
Everything's all right

Here I am and here I'll stay
I'm all right, I'm okay
I feel like the king of the USA

Now I've got bills that I can't pay
I don't care about 'em' anyway
Because I'm all right, and I'm okay
I feel like the king of the USA

When I'm with you
Yes, when I'm with you
When I'm with you
Everything's all right

Everything's all right
Everything's all right
When I'm with you



Tell Me Why


Why is the sun refusing to shine?
Why is the fruit dying on the vine?
Why did you say goodbye?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

Why does each minute seem like it's two?
Bald-face lies seem like the truth?
Why did you say goodbye?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

I know there's no use crying
Over milk that's spilled
And I'm not denying
All the dreams I killed

Why is this time different
Than all the times before?
I guess we just can't live with
Each other any more

Lightening strikes inside of my head
An empty space beside me in bed
Why did you say goodbye?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

I know there's no use crying
Over milk that's spilled
And I'm not denying
All the dreams I killed

So why is this time different
Than all the times before?
I guess we just can't live with
Each other any more

Lightening strikes inside of my head
An empty space beside me in bed
Why did you say goodbye?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why

Why did you say goodbye?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Why can't we have another try?
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why



Each Time


Each time
You hurt me and desert me
You say you'll never do it again

Oh, each time
I catch you lying and you start crying
And you say it's the last time, amen

Then you say "Oh baby,
Everything's gonna be fine"
And like a fool
I keep forgiving you
Each time

Each time
I say I'll leave, you'll never see
And you say that you'll make it all up to me

Oh, each time
You say "Let's try it just once more, 'cause I'm the one you're living for"
And you'll change, I'll see

Then you say "Oh baby,
Everything's gonna be fine"
And like a fool
I keep forgiving you
Each time

Wish that I felt just like I did before
There was a time I could walk out the door
But I can't go now, though I know it's wrong
'Cause you know that it's with you I belong

Then you call me baby
And everything's gonna be fine
No matter what you do
I keep forgiving you
Each time

Each time
Each time
Each time



Miss Doom and Gloom


Oh, Miss Doom and Gloom
Put your frown away
You're the voice of rage and ruin
Even on a sunny day

Oh, Miss Doom and Gloom
Always worrying me 'cause
The sky is going to fall
And then it never does

But if your world turns upside down
And your head starts spinning round and around
I won't let you down
I'll still love you

I'll still love you

Oh, Miss Doom and Gloom
The pessimism queen
You're as real as a cartoon
Yeah, you know what I mean

Oh, Miss Doom and Gloom
You're avoiding all your friends
You gotta get out of your room
Every now and then

But if your world turns upside down
And your head starts spinning round and around
I won't let you down
I'll still love you

I'll still love you
I'll still love you
I'll still love you

Oh, Miss Doom and Gloom
Down, down, down you go
But before your final swoon
There's one thing you should know

If your world turns upside down
And your head starts spinning round and around
I won't let you down
I'll still love you

I'll still love you

I'll still love you
I'll still love you



Turn Around


One morning in the kitchen
My mama told me, "Son
Some day you'll find a woman
You'll know that she's the one"

I've been around the block and
I've seen a thing or two
Right now I'm realizing
That woman could be you

Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around

I dream in Technicolor
I dream in black and white
I do what's necessary
To make it through the night

Last night I dreamed about you
It was a vivid one
My life has got no meaning
Unless you've given some

Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around

Turn around and tell me you still love me
Turn around and tell me you're still mine

I know I don't deserve you
When all is said and done
I know if I were you I'd
Cut my losses and run

But maybe I'd forgive me
That would be better still
And though you're walking out now
Somehow I know you will

Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around
Turn around, turn around

Turn around and tell me you still love me
Turn around and tell me you're still mine
Turn around and tell me you still want me
Tell me everything will work out fine



Are You Coming


Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight
Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight

Are you coming with me to the scene of the crime
You won't see the bright lights one more time

Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight
Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight

Are you ready for a ride that you'll never forget
Do you want to die with no regrets

Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight
Are you coming
Are you coming with me
Coming with me tonight

Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight
Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight

I want to take you out for a week or two
Do the wicked things we used to do

Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight
Are you coming
Are you coming with me tonight

Blink of an Eye


Ten years in the blink of an eye
You turned around and you told me goodbye
And you got on a train
I didn't see you again
'Til now

Ten years in the blink of an eye
And even now I'm wondering why
I just stood in the rain
I got home but I don't
Know how

Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
It goes flying by
In the blink of an eye

Ten years in the beat of a heart
How long have we been apart?
I know it's insane
But the feelings remain
The same

Ten years in the beat of a heart
I see your face and the memories start
To hurt all over again
And then you call
My name

Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
It goes flying by
In the blink of an eye

Do you remember how it felt when we were young?
We had our moment in the sun

Ten years in the blink of an eye
Here we are now, you and I
We're together again
Doing what we were meant
To do

Ten years in the blink of an eye
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up high
And play the old songs for me
I'll play the old songs
For you

Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
Where does the time go?
It goes flying by
In the blink of an eye

It goes flying by
In the blink of an eye

It goes flying by
In the blink of an eye
