Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick and think of you Caught up in circles, confusion is nothing new Flashback - warm nights, almost left behind Suitcase of memories, time after... Sometimes you picture me, I'm walking too far ahead You're calling to me, I can't hear what you've said You say "Go slow", I fall behind The second hand unwinds If you're lost you can look and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting Time after time After my picture fades, darkness has turned to grey Watching through windows, you're wondering if I'm OK Secrets stolen from deep inside The drum beats out of time If you're lost you can look and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting Time after time If you're lost you can look and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting Time after time You say "Go slow", I fall behind The second hand unwinds If you're lost you can look and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting Time after time If you're lost you can look and you will find me Time after time If you fall I will catch you I will be waiting Time after time Time after time Time after time Time after time

Stacy's Mom 03:04
Stacy can I come over after school We could hang around by the pool Did your mom get back from her business trip Is she there, or is she trying to give me the slip No I'm not the little boy that I used to be I'm all grown up now baby can't you see That Stacy's mom has got it going on She's all that I want and I've waited for so long Stacy can't you see you're just not the girl for me I know it might be wrong but I'm in love with Stacy's mom Stacy do you remember when I mowed your lawn Your mom came out with just a towel on I could tell that she liked me from the way she stared And the way she said "You missed a spot over there" And I know you probably think it's just a fantasy But since your dad walked out your mom could use a guy like me And Stacy's mom has got it going on She's all that I want and I've waited for so long Stacy can't you see you're just not the girl for me I know it might be wrong but I'm in love with Stacy's mom Stacy's mom whoa oh oh oh Stacy's mom whoa oh oh oh Stacy can't you see you're just not the girl for me I know it might be wrong but I'm in love with Stacy's mom

Home is where I want to be, pick me up and turn me 'round I feel numb, born with a weak heart, I guess I must be having fun The less we say about it the better, make it up as we go along Feet on the ground, head in the sky, it's OK, I know nothing's wrong Nothing- Hey oh, I got plenty of time Hey oh, you've got light in your eyes And you're standing here beside me, I love the passing of time Never for money, always for love, cover up and say goodnight Say goodnight... Home is where I want to be but I guess I'm already there I come home, she lifted up her wings, I guess that this must be the place I can't tell one from the other, did I find you or you find me? There was a time before we were born, if someone asks, this is where I'll be Where I'll - Hey oh we drift in and out Hey oh sing into my mouth Out of all those kinds of people, you've got a face with a view I'm just an animal looking for a home, to share the same space for a minute or two Will you love me 'till my heart stops, Love me 'till I'm dead Eyes that light up, eyes look through you, cover up the blank spots hit me on the head I go Oooooooooooooooohhhh

Everything is free now, that's what they say Everything I've ever done, gotta give it away Someone hit the big score, they figured it out That I'm gonna do it anyway, even if it doesn't pay I could get a tip jar, gas up the car Try to make a little change down at the bar Or I could get a straight job, I've done it before I never minded working hard, it's who I'm working for 'Cuz everything is free now, that's what they say Everything I've ever done, gotta give it away Someone hit the big score, they figured it out That I'm gonna do it anyway, even if it doesn't pay Every day I wake up, humming a song But I don't have to run around, I could just stay home Sing a little love song I love to myself If there's something that you wanna hear, you can sing it yourself Everything is free now, that's what I said No one's gotta listen to these words in my head Someone hit the big score, they figured it out That we're gonna do it anyway, even if it doesn't pay
5.
I may not always love you, but long as there are stars above you You never need to doubt it, I'll make you so sure about it God only knows what I'd be without you If you should ever leave me, though life would still go on believe me The world could show nothing to me, so what good would living do me God only knows what I'd be without you God only knows what I'd be without you If you should ever leave me, though life would still go on believe me The world could show nothing to me, so what good would living do me God only knows what I'd be without you

When you were young you were the king of carrot flowers And how you built a tower tumbling through the trees And holy rattlesnakes that fell all around your feet Your mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder And dad would spill the garbage all across the floor As we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for This is the room one afternoon I knew I could love you And from above you how I sank into your soul Into that secret place where no one dared to go Your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking And dad would dream of all the different ways to die Each one a little more than he could bear to try
7.
Stay With Me 03:27
Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one night stand But I still need love 'cuz I'm just a man These nights never seem to go to plan I don't want you to leave, will you take my hand Oh won't you stay with me 'Cuz you're all I need This ain't love it's clear to see Darling stay with me Why am I so emotional No it's not a good look, need some self control Deep down I know this never works I just want you to stay so it doesn't hurt Oh won't you stay with me 'Cuz you're all I need This ain't love it's clear to see Darling stay with me Oh won't you stay with me 'Cuz you're all I need This ain't love it's clear to see Darling stay with me Darling stay with me Won't ya stay with me

Thirteen 03:01
Won't you let me walk you home from school Won't you let me meet you at the pool Maybe Friday I can Get tickets to the dance And I'll take you Won't you tell your dad get off my back Tell him what we said about Paint it Black Rock 'n' Roll is here to stay Come inside where it's OK And I'll shake you Won't you tell me what you're thinking of Would you be an outlaw for my love If it's so, well let me know If it's no then I can go I won't make you Won't you let me walk you home from school
9.
Wise men say only fools rush in But I can't help falling in love with you Shall I stay, would it be a sin If I can't help falling in love with you Like a river flows, surely to the sea Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be So take my hand, take my whole life too For I can't help falling in love with you Like a river flows, surely to the sea My darling so it goes, some things are meant to be, won't you please... Take my hand, take my whole life too For I can't help falling in love with you
10.
Faith 03:31
Well I guess it'd be nice if I could touch your body You know not everybody has got a body like you But I gotta think twice before I give my heart away 'Cuz I know all the games you play, 'cuz I played them too Oh honey I need some time off from that emotion Time to pick my heart up off the floor And baby when love comes down without devotion Well it takes a strong man baby but I'm showing you the door 'Cuz I gotta have faith I gotta have faith Yes I gotta have faith, faith, faith, faith Baby, I know you're asking me to stay Say please, please, please don't go away Say I'm giving you the blues Maybe you mean every word you say Can't help but think of yesterday To another who tied me down with his lover boy rules Before this river becomes an ocean Before you throw my heart back on the floor Oh baby I'd reconsider my foolish notion I need someone to hold me but I'll wait for something more 'Cuz I gotta have faith I gotta have faith Yes I gotta have faith, faith, faith, faith Before this river becomes an ocean Before you throw my heart back on the floor Oh baby I'd reconsider my foolish notion I need someone to hold me but I'll wait for something more 'Cuz I gotta have faith I gotta have faith Yes I gotta have faith, faith, faith, faith

Almost heaven, West Virgina Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River Life is old here, older than the trees Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze Country Roads take me home To the place where I belong West Virginia, Mountain Mama Take me home Country Roads All my memories gather 'round her Miner's lady, stranger to blue water Dark and dusty, painted on the sky Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eyes Country Roads take me home To the place where I belong West Virginia, Mountain Mama Take me home Country Roads I hear her voice, in the morning hour it calls me The radio reminds me of my home far away Traveling down the road I get a feeling that I Shoulda been home yesterday, yesterday Country Roads take me home To the place where I belong West Virginia, Mountain Mama Take me home Country Roads Country Roads take me home To the place where I belong West Virginia, Mountain Mama Take me home Country Roads

Midnight on the water I saw the ocean's daughter Walking on a wave, she came Staring as she called my name And I can't get it out of my head No I can't get it out of my head Well my whole world is gone for dead 'Cuz I can't get it out of my head Breakdown on the shoreline Can't move, it's an ebb tide Morning don't get here tonight Searching for her silver light And I can't get it out of my head No I can't get it out of my head Well my whole world is gone for dead 'Cuz I can't get it out of my head, no no Day job in the city Robin Hood and William Tell and Ivanhoe and Lancelot They don't envy me Staring as the sun goes down In dreams the world keeps spinning round And I can't get it out of my head No I can't get it out of my head Well my whole world is gone for dead 'Cuz I can't get it out of my head, no no no
