Lyric (Hot 100 peak)TitleArtist
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You say the words that I can't say (-)
I know you can't control yourself any longer
Feel the rhythm of the music getting stronger (10)
I say a prayer with every heartbeat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I'm asking you what you know about these things (1)
Come back, come back, don't walk away
Come back, come back, come back today
Come back, come back, why can't you see?
Come back, come back, come back to me (99)
You don't have to be rich to be my girl
You don't have to be cool to rule my world (1)
A Salvation Army band played
And the children drank lemonade
And the morning lasted all day, all day (7)
A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well (1)
I wish it were Sunday
'Cause that's my fun day
My I-don't-have-to-run day (2)
I'd sit on his lap in that big old Buick
And steer as we drove through town
He'd tousle my hair and say
Son, take a good look around (6)
You don't really love that guy
You make it with, now do you?
I know you don't love that guy
'Cause I can see right through you (-)
And if a double-decker bus crashes into us
To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die (-)
Is it cloak and dagger?
Could it be spring or fall?
I walk without a cut
Through a stained glass wall (1)
If this world makes you crazy
And you've taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I'll be there (1)
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time into the day (7)
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a lady that was ready to play
It wasn't me she was foolin'
'Cause she knew what she was doin' (4)
Said, hey little boy, you can't go where the others go
'Cause you don't look like they do (1)
Sometimes you're better off dead
There's a gun in your hand and it's pointed at your head
You think you're mad, too unstable
Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables (1)
Peace of mind, it's a piece of cake
Thought control, you get on board any time you like
Like sittin' on pins and needles
Things fall apart, it's scientific (25)
I just get more attached to you when
You hold me in your arms and squeeze me
And you leave me, making me blue (1)
Paint your smile on your lips
Blood red nails on your fingertips
A schoolboy's dream, you act so shy
Your very first kiss was your first kiss goodbye (1)
