THE LYING SONG

Honey I have lied to you a thousand ways
With the things that I do and the things that I say
You only saw what I told you to see
You had a man but it wasn't me.

My hair is a wig and my face is a mask
Fake like the answers I give to the questions you ask
And ev'ry time I'm holding you I just disappear
I'm the lies that I've told you, I'm the words that you hear.

Because nothing's real
Nothing's true
Don't trust what you feel
No matter what you do
Cause loving
Will blind you.

Honey I was on the road soon as the day began
Left you with the memory of a fabricated man
Who doesn't care how much you hurt or how many tears you cry
Or maybe that's another of my thousands of lies.

MARATHON

When you do a thing so many times it feels so right
No matter what that thing might be
But it is not the thing itself that makes you feel so right
You know exactly what I mean
You know exactly what I mean

When you see a thing so many times you forget it's there
You wouldn't know if it went away
But still you tell yourself you need it there just in case
You do the same thing every day
You do the same thing every day

We're creatures of habit
And I have just had it
With waiting for something
To wake me from slumbering
See, me and you
Are just the things that we do
Run in circles we will
Keep on running until we're gone
Like a marathon
Like a marathon
It goes on and on and on and on.

When you say a thing a million times it always seems
That the thing you say is true
But you can say a lie a million times and it's still a dream
And that's exactly what you do
Yes that's exactly what you do.

MAMA I WANNA BE FAMOUS

Mama I was raised by the TV
By talking heads
At night celebrities watched over
My bed.

I had a sitcom brother
He got laughs on cue
I had another mother
As real as you

Now that I’m grown
I miss my soundstage home
I’ve never been there
I want to go there…

Mama I wanna be famous
That’s my dream
Well I won’t rest ‘til my name is
In People Magazine
mama I wanna be famous
But you don’t care
Well I won’t rest ‘til my face is
In Times Square.
I wanna star in a movie
I wanna be on the TV
I wanna be a celebrity
And I want strangers to want to be me.

You say that I won’t make it
Don’t have the drive
But, Ma, if I won’t make it
Why be alive?

It hurts that you don’t love me
But I would not care
With millions wishing to be me
In their every prayer.

Love is fame
They’re the same
I’ve never had them
I want to have them…

Mama I wanna be famous
That’s my dream
Well I won’t rest ‘til my name is
In People Magazine
mama I wanna be famous
But you don’t care
Well I won’t rest ‘til my face is
In Times Square.
I wanna star in a movie
I wanna be on the TV
I wanna be a celebrity
And I want strangers to want to be me.

MILLION BUXX

Hey baby you look like a million bucks
Hey baby you look like a million bucks
But I'm willing to bet
You don't cost that much.

Hey baby your lipstick is smeared on your lips
Hey baby your dress is hiked up to your hips
And I gotta be honest
That's the way I like it.

Baby I would buy you a diamond necklace
But I ain't got the money and you ain't got the class
I got dirt on my face and you got tears in your stockings
So let's shut the windows and let's steam up the glass

Now I don't care about
the ways that you suffered
And you don't care
'bout my unfortunate past
Somewhere else
there are millionaires playing
But here we are baby
so let's steam up the glass.

Come on baby, let's steam up the glass.

Hey baby I'll lay you right out on my bed
Hey baby your eyes
will roll back in your head
And you'll feel
Like you got a diamond necklace
And a million bucks
Like there's no tear in your stocking
Like all the suffering's past
Like you're a millionaire playing
And all you wanna do is just steam up the glass!

It's awful hot
Why don't you open the window?

.....................

HELLO THERE
LONELY PERSON

Across the room
I see you move
You're looking
Lost and broken

I know that soon
I'll be with you
Before a
Word is spoken

You've told me all
I need to know
It's in the
Tears you're crying

I watch them fall
So nice and slow
You've given up
On trying

I am the same as you
I'm lost and broken too
There's just one thing to do
There's just one thing to do!

Hello there lonely person
Hello there lonely person
Alone is a terrible way to be
So why don't you say hello to me.

When in my arms
You will forget
The nights that
You spent needing

Where is the harm
Tonight you get
Not one but
Two hearts beating

I may not know
You very well
But I can
Try to get to

Why take it slow?
You got nothing else
I could see that
The moment I met you

Cause we're the same
We're hurt and ashamed
But I can heal the pain
You gotta let me heal the pain!

.....................

LAND OF TRUST

Ev’ry single time
I see your eyes
They seem a diff’rent color
Ev’ry single time
I feel your touch
It feels a little colder
I thought I
Was the only one you’ve got
But maybe not.

Ev’ry single time
I’ve been in love
It has crashed completely
Always seems that I’m
Just not enough
And someone hurts me
Lies and lies
So secret but I always found them out
Now I’m drowning in an ocean of doubt.

But you can take me to the land of trust
You can you take me to a place where I’ll forget about
The last time I tried this I was crushed
She broke my heart and she just
Left me drowning
In that ocean
Of doubt!

In the land of trust
There are trees
That never fall down
It will be just us
And the breeze
That blows our hair around
I will build
A fortress here
And always keep you near
To me…

And we will live there in the land of trust
We will live there in the land where everything’s okay
We’ll have love and we’ll have lust
Where there’s no one else but us
It’s perfect
It’s a perfect place.

PERRY'S DREAM

I had a dream
That ev'ryone was gone
But you and me
The two of us kept living on

We didn't grieve for them
We were so happy by ourselves
Like Adam and Eve
We didn't need nobody else.

But then I woke and you weren't there
Cause you slipped out while I was dreaming about you
Out all night in somebody else's bed
While I lay here screaming out for you.

I had a dream
That I was fifty stories tall
And I was strong
I was stronger than them all

And then I killed
I killed ev'ryone but you
Once they were gone
Then I could know your love was true

But then I woke and you'd returned
And I saw in your eyes the road you chose
Yet still I take you back cause I am not
Fifty stories tall or even close.

I am just one of many
But why don't you have any
Fear that you might pay the price?
I could make them disappear
They'd die and leave just us here
In paradise
I know I'm dreaming
I know I'm dreaming
I know I'm dreaming
But it'd be nice.

SIXTY-EIGHT DEGREES

Cold white office building
Sixteen stories off the ground
Outside the city's freezing
But in here it always is around
Sixty-eight degrees
Sixty-eight degrees

Sleighbells sound so empty
Ringing in the filthy streets
Boss men wish me merry
Christmas but I just feel the heat:
Sixty-eight degrees
Sixty-eight degrees
I think I'd rather freeze!
I think I'd rather freeze!

It's not quite Christmas in New York City
It's not quite Christmas in New York City
And I don't need your love and I don't want your pity
Cause I can't feel a thing in this cold white city.

Control me like the climate
Hold my collar like a leash
Want a flunky? I'm it
Just give me my Christmas bonus, bitch
It's sixty-eight degrees
It's sixty-eight degrees
I wish that I would freeze.

  LOVE IN WARTIME

Can you hear the bombs?
They're falling all around us
And it won't be long
Until someone's found us
Ooh baby
We're enemies to them
And when they find us
It's gonna be the end.

There's an orchestra
Of anti-aircraft fire
Plays a funeral dirge
As the flames rise higher
Ooh baby
I think we've lost the war
And I've forgotten
What we were fighting for

So lock the door
And hold me near
And I will whisper
In your hear:

I will love you forever
Though we may not last night
We will die together
Before we see the morning light
I don't need to run or hide
I just need you by my side.

THEME SONG

Hey boys
Are you feeling down?
Yeah girls
We are feeling down
We’ve been really hurting

Hey girls
Will you make it all right
Yeah boys
We will make it all right
We’ll make it all all right

Now the sun is out
There’s not a cloud overhead
You can forget about
All the people who said:
You are not important
You are not enough
You can be important
Just stick with us

Hey boys
Are you feeling better?
Yeah girls
We are feeling better
We are feeling good

Hey girls
Do you wanna get down?
Yeah boys
We are gonna get down
Get down get down get down!

Now the sun is out
There’s not a cloud overhead
You can forget about
All the people who said:
You are not important
You are not enough
You can be important
Just stick with us

You think that you've done ev’rything
But you ain't done it quite like us
You think that you've felt pleasure but
You've never felt so fabulous
You think that you’ve seen ev’rything
But this is not a mirage
You think that you’ve been satisfied
But you just met the entourage
We’re gonna satisfy
We’re gonna satisfy
We’re gonna clear your gray skies

Now the sun is out
There’s not a cloud overhead
You can forget about
All the people who said:
You are not important
You are not enough
You can be important
You can be fabulous!

BURN THE CITY DOWN

We built a city here
To hold our love inside
Warm walls to keep you near
Small rooms in which to hide.

Don't move a single hair
We're perfect in our little space
Here everything is where
It is and in its rightful place.

A city built about you
Is only ash without you.

If you leave me then I'll burn the city down
If you leave me I will burn it to the ground
I'll watch the buildings fall
I'll take them all
I'll take them all.

I am a gaping hole
For we are both the same
I'm filled with glowing coals
I'm filled with leaping flames.

A city built about you
Is only ash without you.

If you leave me I will burn the city down
If you leave me I will burn it to the ground
Then only rain will fall
And wash it all
Wash it all
Away.

END OF THE WORLD

Watch out baby doll
You’re living in a tough town
People wanna see you fall
And people wanna knock you down

Knock knock knocking on your door
Is a disappointment
Rock rock rocking you be-
Fore you can find out what it meant

Oh baby doll
No one’s got a crying shoulder
You’re gonna feel it all
And understand it when you’re older

No one understands you
No matter how you want them to

No
No
No
But you can’t…

Never ever give
Never ever give
Up now
Girl you’re gonna live
Girl you’re gonna live
Somehow
Girl you gotta work
Girl you gotta work
Longer
I know it hurts
But girl it’s gonna make you
Stronger

This isn’t the end of the world
This isn’t the end of the world

Watch out sugar pie
You’re playing in a rough game
People wanna see you cry
And no one’s gonna know your name

One two three four
Counting out your disappointments
Always gonna be more
Never gonna find out what they meant

Oh sugar pie
No one ever has the answers
No one’s gonna tell you why
And no one’s got the cure for cancer

No one’s gonna save you
No matter how you want them to

No-o
No-o
No-o
But you can’t…

Never ever give
Never ever give
Up now
Girl you’re gonna live
Girl you’re gonna live
Somehow
Girl you gotta work
Girl you gotta work
Longer
I know it hurts
But girl it’s gonna make you
Stronger

This isn’t the end of the world
This isn’t the end of the world

THE SURFACE OF THE MOON

Girl, this Earth-weight
Is a real drag
Holds us down
In this atmosphere.
Girl it's time to
Pack your space bag
Take my hand and
I'll take you away from here.

Girl, I know you've got
Baggage that weighs too much
It's so heavy
In this gravity field
I will take you
With the power of my touch
And when you're ready
We'll blast off
to the one place
where our love can be real…

Girl we'll fly to the moon in a silver ship
And our feet won't touch the ground
Girl I'll plant a kiss on your trembling lips
As we touch down

Then the Earth will rise in the lunar sky
And I'll lay you down like a dream
You'll be so light that you'll start to fly
And I'll make you scream
On the surface of the moon.

.....................

ROBOT GIRL

I was lonely so I thought
I'd build a robot
To keep me warm.

Built from vacuum and car parts
With a tin heart
For metallic charm.

Aluminum goddess
Programmed to caress
In my arms.

When I plug her in
I feel her motor by me
Electric body sings:
"Electrify me!"

I'm in love with a robot-girl
Iron eyes and copper curls
And though her body is made of steel
My love will make her real.

I told her how I feel
But her heart is cold steel
And she don't care.

No tears made of oil
Her skin like tin foil
There's nothing there.

She may make the motions
But her motor's dying
I'll tear her body open
I'll be crying:

I'm in love with a robot-girl
Iron eyes and copper curls
And though her body is made of steel
My love will make her real.

Then she'll see with her iron eyes
Then she'll open her metal thighs
Blood will pound and her skin will feel
My love will make her real.

MIDNIGHT COWBOY

You're lying there in the moonlight
All alone and it's nearly midnight
I think that you know what it's time to do.

It's time to get yourself in motion
It's time for sensual explosion
It's time to shake what your mama gave you.

Cause mama gave you a whole lot
I'm gonna pray that you don't stop
This feeling you're giving
is something so new.

So shiny
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Like a brand new toy
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You know where to find me
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You're my midnight cowboy

It's amazing how you understand
The things that words cannot say
Ev'ry move that you make is a poem.

I hold you here in my hands
I hold you tight so you won't get away
I'm gonna ride you all the way home!
I'm gonna ride you cause baby you're…

So shiny
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Like a brand new toy
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You know where to find me
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You're my midnight cowboy!

Play nice now
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
It's like an ode to joy
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Won't you show me how?
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
You're my midnight cowboy.
