A Bit Irrational

I Can See You're In Love


I can see it in your eyes
As you stumble down the street
You look at nothing in particular
Ignoring everyone you meet

I can see you're in love
Yes, I know all the signs and you've got 'em all
I can see you're in love
I can't believe it's true

And I know that you feel
That it'll never be the same
You feel a little bit of happiness
You're holding on to all the pain

I can see you're in love
Yes, I know all the signs and you've got 'em all
Could it be you're in love?
You used to be so cool

You used to be the one
To knock on every door
And you used to laugh at danger
Sure not laughing anymore

Now you love to be alone
With your head above the clouds
And you're trying to explain
That it doesn't mean a thing
While you sit and watch the telephone
Just hoping it'll ring

I can see you're in love
I can see you're in love
I can see you're in love
Now what you going to do?



Was That You?


Was that you, Holy Mary full of grace
Was that you? Tonight you're showing off your pretty face
Was that you, giving me the evil eye
Was that you with another guy

Was that you? You called me up to break our date
Was that you? You told me you were working late
Was that you? I think you need another alibi
Was that you with another guy

Well, I knew it was you, 'cause your dress was red
And you wore your sunglasses on your head
I would follow the trail of broken hearts
And know you're around here somewhere
Don't you care?
Was that you?

Was that you? Now you're acting like there's nothing wrong
Was that you, the leading lady in my sad song
Was that you? I'll bet you'd really love to see me cry
Was that you with another guy
Was that you with another guy

Was that you?
You know, it'd have to be you
Out it in the parking lot
You
You're always making time
You
You're with another guy
You



Come See About Me


I've been crying, boo hoo
Oh, so lonely for you
The smiles have all turned to tears
The tears won't wash away all my fears

That you're never ever going to return
To ease the fire that within me burns
And keeps me crying, baby, for you
Keeps me sighing, baby, for you

So won't you hurry, come on
See about me, come see about me
Come see about your baby
Come see about me

I've given up my friends just for you
My friends have gone and you have too
No peace shall I find
Until you come back and be mine

And no matter what you do or say
I'm a-gonna love you anyway
I keep on crying, baby, for you
I'm gonna keep on sighing, baby, for you

So won't you hurry, come on
See about me, come see about me
Come see about your baby
Come see about me

Sometimes up and sometimes down
My life's so uncertain with you not around

And my arms are maybe out of reach
But my heart says you hear it beat
I keep on crying, baby, for you
I keep on keep on crying, baby, for you

So won't you hurry, come on
See about me, come see about me
Come see about your baby
Come see about me



Magic


We'll make it magic
We'll make it magic
Well wave our hands, make him disappear
Make believe that love is here

You know I love you
I'm thinking of you
There's not a trick that I haven't tried
You know I love you, but you can't decide

Chorus
We'll make it magic
We'll make it all right
We'll make it magic
And I'll make you mine

A lover like you could be
Just right for me
You say he won't let you go
Oh no

It's breaking my heart
Don't tease
I'm on my knees
By now you ought to know

Chorus

I'll make you mine now
I'll cast a spell and I'll make believe
You'll forget him and you'll run to me

Chorus




Good As Gold


One more thing before you give me back the ring
Can I make you stay, girl?
It took so long for love to come along
You're throwing it away, girl

It's good as gold
So hard to find
So why should you be so unkind?

One more time to try and change your mind
To make you understand it
You say you got to go, but now I got to know
How long ago you planned it

It's good as gold
It shines just as bright
So why should you leave me tonight?
It's good as gold

One last chance to save this romance
Wait until tomorrow
You might be right to cut me off tonight
Don't make me beg and borrow

It's good as gold
So hard to find
So why should you be so unkind?

It's good as gold
We can't let it end
'Cause love only comes now and then



She Got Me


All at once she's here and gone
Never stays in one place long
I can't say that she is wrong
Cause she got me

I like things the way they were
She keeps wishing on a star
Though her dreams may take her far
I hope she always sees that she got, she got me

All at once she's here and gone
Thought she'd stay but I was wrong
Though she's been away so long
I'm waiting so patiently 'cause she got, she got me

All night, it's all right
She come back to me
'Cause she got, she got me
She got, she got me



Please


Please, love me tonight
Please, make it feel right

You gotta treat me like a big man
'Cause I don't wanna be so insecure
Sometimes I know just why you're laughing at me
But then again, I'm never sure

I got a rotten reputation
I remember what my mama used to say
She said I'd get the things that I wanted to have
If I would ask in a certain way

Please, please love me tonight
Please don't be afraid
I'm gonna make it feel right
And please hold me tonight

I'm asking you in desperation
There's nothing that I want as much as you
When my desires get the better of me
There's not a lot that I can do

Please, please love me tonight
Please don't be afraid
I'm gonna make it feel right
And please say you might tonight

How does it feel?
It feels all right
I'd put it in words
But I'm not very bright
I'll love you tomorrow
If you love me tonight

Please, please love me tonight
Please don't be afraid
I'm gonna make it feel right
And please, please say please tonight



Darlin'


Darlin', darlin'
Oh my darlin', you're so fine

You know if words could say
Darlin', I'd find a way
To let you know what you meant to me
Guess it's just meant to be
I hold you in my heart
That's life's most precious part

Chorus
Oh darlin'
I dream about you all through my waking day
I love the way you soften my life
With your love, your precious love

I was living like half a man
Then I couldn't love but now I can
You pick me up when I'm feeling sad
More soul than I ever had
I'm gonna love you every single night
Gonna make it feel all right

Chorus

Every night, oh darlin'
I'm gonna love you every single night
Yes I will
Gonna make it feel all right tonight

Chorus



(I Can Hardly) Wait For Night


Later on I want to steal your thunder
Lay you down where the moon is high
Spend my life looking up from under
Now we gotta make it, do or die

What's the matter darlin', don't you want to come with me?
Are you afraid of how it's making you feel
She says: I know what you're thinking
Tonight I'll show you that my love is real

Chorus
I can hardly wait for night
We gotta make it hot
Give it all we got
I can hardly wait for night
Tonight it's gotta be
Baby, you and me

In the night we can hide all the evidence
Stop the car and we'll steal a kiss
We've been waiting for, oh, such a long time
All we needed was a chance like this

Say you haven't changed your mind
Night is falling and we can't stop now
She says: Baby please, don't rush me
I won't be frightened when the sun goes down

Chorus

Out there, we've been told, it gets cold
Here in the dark it's so warm
Tonight I'll show you that my love is real

Chorus



The Ballad of Rudolf Kaiser (Einstein)


Hey Mr. Einstein brilliant as a man can be
Messing with the universe, thinking scientifically
Well, if you're so smart
Why is your daughter hanging around with me?

Hey Mr. Einstein it don't mean that much to me
If matter isn't relative or MC squared don't equal E
And my one track mind says
Your little girl was meant for me

Oh Mr. Einstein working day and night
While your daughter works on ways to make me feel all right
Oh Mr. Einstein look what's going on
All night long

Hey Mr. Einstein solving nature's mysteries
You might be quite observant, but there's one thing that you can't see
If you could look beyond your nose
You just might learn a couple things from me

Here in the backseat, far away from home
We're doing some experimenting on our own
The old man can't stand having me around
But I won't back down

Oh Mr. Einstein



Kiss Me


Oh come here and kiss me
We shouldn't wait a minute more
Oh you're gonna miss me
Your brother's knocking down the door

Now baby, baby I don't want to hurt you
You know I'll never break your heart
But everybody thinks that I'll desert you
And so they're keeping us apart

Chorus
Let's get started, come on honey
Broken-hearted, it's not funny
Let's go honey, I'm the one you need
Come on, come here and kiss me
Come on, come here and kiss me
Come on, come here and kiss me
Don't miss me

Oh, I think about you
Every minute, every day
Girl, I'd rather die than live without you
No matter what your parents say

Oh come here and kiss me
Pucker up and we'll do it right
Oh come here and kiss me
And I'll come back tomorrow night

Chorus

Come on, come here and kiss me



Heartbreak Again


It was easy I know
For her to pack her things and go
She never told me a thing
She just left my diamond ring

It's wrong, so wrong
That her love was just pretend
And I can't take that heartbreak again

Then with one look at you
I forgot what I was going through
A tender touch from your hand
Which made me understand

I gotta know right now
If you think that this'll ever end
'Cause I can't take that heartbreak
No I can't take that heartbreak again

And when we woke up today
I knew it always had to be this way
Now all that I need
Is your guarantee

That you'll be mine, all mine
Swear you'll love me to the bitter end
'Cause I can't take that heartbreak

No I can't take that heartbreak again
No I won't take that heartbreak again
No I can't take that heartbreak again
