LYRICS (for album "Pretty Holiday")

Burning Down The House

 

Watch out you might get what you're after

Cool babies strange but not a stranger

I'm an ordinary guy

Burning down the house

 

Hold tight wait till the party's over

Hold tight we're in for nasty weather

There has got to be a way

Burning down the house

 

Here's your ticket pack your bag time for jumping overboard

The transportation is here

Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are

Fighting fire with fire

 

All wet hey you might need a raincoat

Shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight

Three hundred sixty five degrees

Burning down the house

 

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself

Gonna come in first place

People on their way to work said baby what did you except

Gonna burst into flame

 

My house it’s out of the ordinary

That's right don't want to hurt nobody

Some things sure can sweep me off my feet

Burning down the house

 

No visible means of support and you have not seen nothing yet

Everything's stuck together

I don't know what you expect starring into the tv set

Fighting fire with fire

 
 

Pretty Holiday

 

Sugar bomb sugar bomb better run for cover

Lie awake lie awake she’s hot rod lover

 

She’s my heartache Pretty Holiday

 

C’mon

Turn it up turn it up I’m a hot and sweaty

She’s a knock out punch yeah ya better be ready

Wham bam bang bang chitty chitty

She’s gonna drink your milk

Here kitty kitty

 

She’s my heartache Pretty Holiday

She’s my heartache pretty hard to forget!

 

Rev it up rev it up keep the engine humming

Like-a  like-a  like-a

Like a jet airplane I can hear her cumming

I’m burning up at a hundred degrees

And now my life’s on fire and I’m feeling the squeeze

Turn around turn around before it takes me under

 

She’s my heartache Pretty Holiday

She’s my heartache pretty hard to forget!

 

She’s my heartache Pretty Holiday

Pretty Holiday pretty hard to forget

 

She’s my heartache

Pretty Holiday

Pretty Holiday

She she’s my heartache

Pretty hard pretty hard Pretty Holiday

Pretty Holiday

C’mon!

 

Let It Go

 

Listen little sister

Bring it to a whisper

When you gonna settle down?

What’s up with your girlfriend

Dressing like your boyfriend

When’s she gonna come around?

 

Baby gotta let it go

You gotta let it go

If you’re gonna make it

You gotta let it slide

Gotta let it slide

If you wanna break it

 

Pretty little soldier

Trying to get over

Birthday number seventeen

Looking for an ending

To the Barbie/Ken thing

Messing with your time machine

 

Baby gotta let it go

You gotta let it go

If you’re gonna make it

You gotta let it slide

Gotta let it slide

If you wanna break it

Baby gotta let it go

You gotta let it go

Unless you think that you can fake it

 

And the moment you realize

That it won’t be the same life

And you’re sleeping with your eyes open

Cuz you won’t see that again

 

What’s up little sister?

Caught up in your twister

When you gonna come unwound

Worried you will seem too

Insensitive and see through

Is only gonna weigh you down

Only Love

 

You told me all about your day

With that sparkle in your eyes

And like a beautiful bouquet

You know I never realized

 

That you give me everything

When you sing to me at night

And everything is wonderful

Under breakfast candle light

 

You remain my only love

And you can say anything

Just don’t say goodbye

You remain my, my only love

And you can have anything

Just don’t take my smile

 

We went on a holiday

Drove a rental to the sea

And liked we’d sailed around the world

We were living out a dream

 

And we sang along the way

In imperfect harmony

 

You remain my only love

And you can say anything

Just don’t say goodbye

You remain my, my only love

And you can have anything

Just don’t take my smile

 

She told me all about her day

With that sparkle in her eye

And with a sip of cabernet

You know I never realized

That’s right

 

You remain my only love

And you can have anything

Just don’t take my smile

You remain my, my only love

And you can say anything

Just don’t say goodbye

 

Finally

 

I don’t live in London, Paris, New York or LA

I don’t get premonitions that will help to lead the way

I’ve got a heart that won’t give in

And still they say I’m made of tin

 

They tell me I won’t make it

And they kick me when I’m down

Well that’s just what I need to hear

To turn my life around

I put up some kind of a fight

And when they turn me in I’ll tell them

That I’ve come to far to stop now

 

Finally

Everything seems to be alright and working itself out

Might be all I need

To keep me from exploding into little pieces

 

When I’m on the money and the money’s not on me

I sneak in through the back door and into happyland for free

It keeps me smiling for today

Maybe tomorrow I will stay

 

Ya da da da da da da

I got a lot to figure out

But there’s no doubt what I was made for

Call the army I’ve gone AWOL

 

Finally

Everything seems to be alright and working itself out

Might be all I need

To keep me from exploding into little pieces

Little pieces

 

Get me to the airport and put me on a plane

I’ve got an explanation but I’ve no time to explain

My battery is running low

And when all is said I must be on my way

I really must go

 

Take Everything

 

Paying off your broken dreams

Stripped of all your self esteem

Trying so hard to believe

 

It’s gonna take everything

Everything to make it right

 

Killers play their killers songs

Talking heads babbling on

Falling stars to wish upon

 

It’s gonna take everything

Everything to make it right

It’s gonna take everything

Everything to make it right

 

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

 

Ya it’s almost out there

I can feel it coming

Turn it up loud

Ya you wanna sell you

You gotta push it through

Storm the crowd

Giving it everything

Giving it everything

 

Running out of life to live

How much more love can you give

Still feeling like a kid

 

It’s gonna take everything

Everything to make it right

It’s gonna take everything

Everything to make it right

 

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

 

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

Don’t turn out the lights

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

Don’t turn out the lights just yet

 

Starhead

 

This is the beginning of hell

Hope you’re doing fine

Hope you’re doing well

If you wanna make a big deal

Better take another spin of the wheel

 

Starhead

Step in the light

Don’t turn out the night

Starhead

Don’t bring your life

They’re wielding the knives

Ya ya ya

 

Would you like to change your real name?

[change your real name]

See your mirror image in cellophane

They’ll give you everything that you need

[everything you need]

Press release when you get busted for weed

 

Starhead

Step in the light

Don’t turn out the night

Starhead

Don’t bring your life

They’re wielding the knives

Ya ya ya

 

Starhead

Don’t bring your life

They’re wielding the knives

Ya ya ya Ya ya ya

 

Take another bite of your dream

[bite of your dream]

Spit it out before you choke on the scene

They’re gonna rip you out of your shell

[rip you out of your shell]

Then they’ll watch you drown in your wishing well

 

Starhead

Step in the light

Don’t turn out the night

Starhead

Don’t bring your life

They’re wielding the knives

 

Wild Over You 

 

Can’t you see me Alice I’m in Wonderland

Dreamin’ up things only I’d understand

 

Ooo ya it’s true

I go Wild Over You               

 

Never Never Land

I’ve never been so high

You caught me in a stare

I thought that I would die

 

I go Wild Over You

Ya I go Wild Over You

 

Maybe when the stars align

And everything turns to chocolate

You will see what I see

And all this time

You’ll realize you might

Have just won the prize

 

Damned if I’m the one who’ll ever see it through

Can’t believe the things I get myself into

 

I go Wild Over You

I go Wild Over You

I go Wild…

Over you

Over you

 

She’s Gone

 

Why’ve I messed up everything I figured out?

Must’ve lost my head and opened my big mouth

24 hours I won’t soon forget

Now she’s gone

 

I can’t help thinkin’ how I ran the ship aground

I could’ve been the wind of change and turned it around

I kick myself for lying to the one I love

Now she’s gone

 

One more time ya we’ve heard it before

But it’s the only way I know

Now I’m sayin’

 

Who am I to write another love song?

And why am I always gettin’ this thing wrong

And how am I supposed to feel like going on

Now that’s she’s gone

 

One might say it doesn’t just fall in place

After all that might have just been the case

You can’t keep holdin’ on when it’s going down

Going down

 

One more time ya we’ve heard it before

But it’s the only way I know

Now I’m sayin’

 

Who am I to write another love song?

And why am I always gettin’ this thing wrong

And how am I supposed to feel like going on

Now that’s she’s gone

 

One more time ya we’ve heard it before

But it’s the only way I know

Now I’m sayin’

 

Who am I to write another love song?

And why am I always gettin’ this thing wrong

And how am I supposed to feel like going on

Now that’s she’s gone

 
 

Things To Think About

 

There’s a break up going down today today

And I can hear the hearts breaking

And I don’t know if it’s laughing or crying

Or trying all over again

 

There’s a light on and someone thinking

About a life that’s gone by

Maybe I’ll be asking myself the same thing

The same way when I say goodbye

 

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about now

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about

 

There’s a man dancing out on the edge

And singing for those below

He’s lived and now he’s living out his adventure

Before he’s gonna let it all go

 

Padlocks are keeping all of our secrets

Even those we can tell

There will always be a lot of unanswered questions

Spinning ‘round in our carousel

 

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about now

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about

 

And when your sun stops shining

Think of your favourite things

Cause sometimes that’s all that we have

A lot of things to think about

There’s a lot of things to think about

 

La la la la’s what everyone’s singing

It’s gonna get us all through

Now come along Mr. can’t find my way

It’s the song that’s long overdue

 

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about now

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about

 

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about now

Ooo... There’s a lot of things to think about
