Lyric (Hot 100 peak)TitleArtist
Ok, what is it tonight?
Please just tell me what the hell is wrong
Do you wanna eat, do you wanna sleep, do you wanna drown?
Just settle down, settle down, settle down (-)
Got in a little hometown jam, so they put a rifle in my hand
Sent me off to a foreign land to go and kill the yellow man (9)
Out on the road today, I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said "Don't look back, you can never look back" (5)
I was struck by lightning, walkin' down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep (-)
But to know that I'll forgive you just this once, twice, forever
'Cause baby, you could take me to hell and back
Just as long as we're together (3)
You keep your distance with a system of touch
And gentle persuasion
I'm lost in admiration, did I need you that much? (3)
Oh woo oh ho, oh woo oh ho
Caught up in the action, I've been looking out for you
Oh woo oh ho, oh woo oh ho
Tell me, can you feel it? Tell me can you feel it? (2)
How can you say I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does (-)
I gotta take a little time, a little time to think things over
I better read between the lines in case I need it when I'm older (1)
Only when I'm dancing can I feel this free
At night, I lock the doors where no-one else can see
I'm tired of dancing here all by myself (-)
Radio playing softly some singer's sad, sad song
He's singing about standing in the shadows of love
I guess it feels awfully alone (6)
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV (1)
All the men come in these places
And the men are all the same
You don't look at their faces
And you don't ask their names (7)
And if I only could, I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places (30)
Gonna get that old feeling when you walk through the door
For tonight is the night for feeling alright
We'll be making love the whole night through (1)
I had a dream, I had an awesome dream
People in the park, playing games in the dark
And what they played was a masquerade (1)
Coast to coast, LA to Chicago, western male
Across the north and south to Key Largo, love for sale (5)
I held your hands
Rings, but none on that finger
We danced and danced
But I was scared to go much further with it (27)
He wants me, but only part of the time
He wants me, if he can keep me in line (8)
Standing in the pouring rain
All alone in a world that's changed
Running scared, now forced to hide
In a land where he once stood with pride (78)
