Lyric (Hot 100 peak)TitleArtist
If he was from Venus, would he feed us with a spoon?
If he was from Mars, wouldn't that be cool? (-)
We all need a big reduction in the amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet (-)
There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup (2)
Well, I guess it would be nice
To touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you (1)
My traveling companion is nine years old
He is the child of my first marriage
But I've reason to believe
We both will be received (81)
I don't know where I'm going, but I sure know where I've been
Hangin' on the promises in songs of yesterday
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wastin' no more time (1)
You chose your words from mouths of babes got lost in the woods
The hip flask slinging madmen, steaming cafe flirts
In Chinatown, howling at night (-)
Each time the wind blows, I hear your voice so
I call your name
Whispers at morning, our love is dawning
Heaven's glad your came (1)
I have climbed highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you, only to be with you (1)
We're running just as fast as we can
Holding onto one another's hands
Trying to get away into the night (1)
I need a man who'll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls, my lonely heart calls (1)
No, I never felt this way before
Yes, I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you (1)
When I look back upon my life
It's always with a sense of shame
I've always been the one to blame (9)
We made our very first promise
To love, to share, and be real honest
But on that very first night
It wasn't quite right (2)
We gotta hold on to what we've got
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
We've got each other and that's a lot (1)
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
A simple prop to occupy my time (9)
Burn down the disco, hang the blessed DJ
Because the music that they constantly play
It says nothing to me about my life (-)
It's silly, no, when a rocketship explodes
And everybody still wants to fly
Some say a man ain't happy
Unless a man truly dies (3)
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near (32)
You wake up late for school, man, you don't wanna go
You ask your mon please, but she still says no (7)
