Let me know that I've done wrong when I've known this all along, I go around a time or two just to waste my time with you.
You can dress me up in diamonds. You can dress me up in dirt. You can throw me like a lineman. I like it better when it hurts.
Chill out. Whatcha yelling for? Lay back. It's all been done before.
Baby, set me free from this misery. I can't take it no more. Since you ran away, nothing's been the same. Don't know what I'm living for.
Let me tell y'all what it's like being male, middle class, and white. It's a bitch if you don't believe, listen up to my new CD.
What you gon' do with all that junk? All that junk inside your trunk?
Debbie just hit the wall. She never had it all. One Prozac a day. Husband's a CPA.
Superstar, where you from? How's it going? I know you. Got a clue what you're doing. You can play brand new to all the other chicks out here but I know what you are.
She was driving last Friday on the way to Cincinnati on a snow white Christmas Eve. Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with her baby in the backseat.
Ooh, I'm overdue. Give me some room, I'm comin' through. Paid my dues, in the mood. Me and the girls gonna shake the room.
Boys and girls, wanna hear a true story? Saturday night, was at this real wild party. They had the liquor overflowin' the cup, about five, six strippers tryin' to work for a buck.
Whatcha doin' tonight? I wish I could be a fly on your wall. Are you really alone? Who's stealing your dreams? Why can't I bring you into my life?
When you try your best but you don't succeed. When you get what you want but not what you need. When you feel so tired but you can't sleep, stuck in reverse.
Where is the moment we needed the most? You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost.
Now that you're out of my life, I'm doing better. You thought that I'd be weak without you, but I'm stronger. You thought that I'd be broke without you, but I'm richer.
His palms are sweaty. Knees weak, arms are heavy. There's vomit on his sweater already - Mom's spaghetti.
Would you dance if I asked you to dance? Would you run and never look back?
The smell of your skin lingers on me now. You're probably on your flight back to your hometown.
Restless tonight 'cause I wasted the light. Between both these times I drew a really thin line. It's nothing I planned, and not that I can, but you should be mine across that line.
Shorty had them apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur. The whole club lookin' at her.
This is 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain.
Step one: you say, 'we need to talk.' He walks. You say, 'sit down, it's just a talk.'
I'm happy. I'm feelin' glad. I got sunshine in a bag. I'm useless, but not for long. The future is coming on.
Do you know what's worth fighting for? When it's not worth dying for? Does it take your breath away, and you feel yourself suffocating?
Sun's up. It's a little after twelve. Make breakfast for myself. Leave the work for someone else.
The dawn is breaking, a light shining through. You're barely waking and I'm tangled up in you.
Where are we? What the hell is going on? The dust has only just began to form crop circles in the carpet.
My life is brilliant. My love is pure. I saw an angel. Of that I'm sure. She smiled at me on the subway. She was with another man.
All my girls at the party, look at that body. Shakin' that thing like you never did see. Got a nice package, alright. Guess I'm gonna have to party tonight.
You change your mind like a girl changes clothes. Yeah, you PMS like a bitch. I would know.

Here's the thing. We started out friends. It was cool, but it was all pretend. Yeah, yeah.
I've been roaming around. I was looking down at all I see. Painted faces fill the places I can't reach.
Her face is a map of the world, is a map of the world. You can see she's a beautiful girl, she's a beautiful girl. And everything around her is a silver pool of light.
I've had a little bit too much, much. All of the people start to rush, start to rush by. How does he twist the dance? Can't find a drink, oh man.
Desparate for changing. Starving for truth. I'm closer to where I started. I'm chasing after you.
Moved into my apartment at the U-N-I-versity. The only one who lives here is me. So why's the phone ring all day long? I got no friends except Mike, and he's gone for the summer.
I fly like paper, get high like planes. If you catch me at the border, I got visas in my name.
All day, staring at the ceiling making friends with shadows on my wall. All night, hearing voices telling me that I should get some sleep.
I wanted to be like you. I wanted everything. So I tried to be like you and I got swept away.
I hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan. Welcome to the land of fame excess. Am I gonna fit in?
I backed my car into a cop car the other day. Well he just drove off; sometimes life's okay.
When I was a young boy, my father took me into the city to see a marching band. He said, 'son, when you grow up, would you be the savior of the broken, the beaten, and the damned?'
Well we go back so far, swingin' in your backyard, all the things that we used to do. We were cool back in high school. Ooh, I really liked you. Must've been your attitude.
Never made it as a wiseman. I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing.
I know when he's been on your mind. That distant look is in your eyes. I thought with time you'd realize it's over. Over.
My baby don't mess around because she loves me so and this I know for sure. But does she really wanna, but can't stand to see me walk out the door?
I don't mind spending some time just hanging here with you 'cause I don't find too many guys that treat me like you do.
I don't want to be the girl that laughs the loudest or the girl who never wants to be alone. I don't want to be that call at four o'clock in the morning.
Now I'm not trying to be rude, but hey, pretty girl, I'm feelin' you. The way you do the things you do reminds me of my Lexus coupe.
You have my heart and we'll never be worlds apart. Maybe in magazines, but you'll still be my star.
Everybody's got something they had to leave behind. One regret from yesterday that just seems to grow with time.
Hey, hey. Did you ever think there might be another way to just feel better, to just feel better about today?
She clings to me like celophane. Fake plastic submarine. Slowly driving me insane, but now that's over.
Stormin' through the party like my name is El Nino when I'm hangin' out drinking in the back of an El Camino.
Wake up! Grab a brush and put on a little makeup. Hide the scars to fade away the shakeup. Why'd you leave the keys upon the table?
You're on the phone with your girlfriend. She's upset. She's going off about something that you said, 'cause she doesn't get your humor like I do.
The heart is a bloom, shoots up through the stony ground. There's no room, no space to rent in this town.
Where I come from isn't all that great. My automobile is a piece of crap. My fashion sense is a little whack and my friends are just as screwy as me.
Pack up. I'm straight enough. Oh, say, say, say.
Well I took a walk around the world to ease my troubled mind. I left my body lying somewhere in the sands of time.
