Well the man said, we gotta start it off. And then he said, We gotta start it off. I'll tell you what we're gonna do, We're gonna start it off. Gonna start it off. We'll he said, why do we hold it back so strong? When we know the night is young? We gotta change the way we wait to live our lives.\ And I said, my silence has been my refrain, If I don't move nothing can change, And that has got appeal I can't deny. I'll tell you what we're gonna do, We're gonna start it off.

I got a head full of my emotion. She’s got a fist full of my desire. Talk is cheap cause I don’t pay attention. It’s all smoke when there’s not enough fire. She ain’t the kind of thing that I would normally do. My hollow chest bearing down within me. My hips controlled by just one thing. I look away, pretending that I’m busy. Too sick to read between the lines. Between the devil and the deep blue sea. The world reduces to a low slow hum. The way she makes me feel. Why is simple the hardest thing to do? Simple motives all jostle for position. If distance lends enchantment to the view, I’m gonna get a little closer, See what I’ve been missing. If I had a girl I wouldn’t be dancing.

My girl dances when I want her to dance, But she ain't dancing no more. I had to buy a car to hide her appeal. With tinted windows and a big steering wheel. I drive her around. I drive here around. They can't see in so she will never be found. My girl dances when I want her to dance, But she ain't dancing no more. She tells me that there's no need to worry, That this is crazy and she will never be free. It plays on my mind, it plays on my mind. So scared to lose her and her lovely behind. My girl dances when I want her to dance, But she ain't dancing no more. She dances like a hurricane caught in a landslide, she dances for all the wrong reasons, but I don't mind. 'Cause she's mine. My girl dances when I want her to dance, No... my girl dances when she wants to dance, And now I'm dancing along.

I ain’t got no rhyme, I ain’t go no rhythm, Ain’t got no time, No time for indecision, ‘Cause I’m first in line, For losing my inhibition In a war with my mind, A war of attrition. I don’t need no rest, Don’t need no sleep, Gonna hurt myself ‘Fore I admit defeat And I’m not impressed With what your telling me. I’m gonna make a mess, Gonna make you see. Whoa, body and mind. War of attrition.

Girl I don't want to leave, But you're making me go, I was a man in need, Now I can't hurt no more. All my love in vain The way that you try to deceive, Hurts me deep inside. Girl I don't want to leave, But I've got to say goodbye. All my love in vain Ball, baby, ball and chain. Like a ball and chain. All my love in vain.

I couldn’t believe it when I saw her standing there, Her summer dress her autumn hair, And he so unaware, his had beneath her skin, that skin I’ve known. Well she took my money, and she took my clothes. She turned me into someone I do not know, But I wish that autumn girl, Would give me back my heart. I couldn’t believe it when I found I could not move, And I felt my mind collapse into the room. And to the moon, it looked like they were written in the stars, But I could only see one winner standing at the bar. Well she took my money, and she took my clothes. She turned me into someone I do not know, But I wish that autumn girl, Would give me back my heart. You’re so special. You’re so special. You’re so special, ‘cause you’ve got a special skill.

I'm feeling all right, Despite my better judgement. I'm feeling all right, I kinda wish I wasn't. You should be turning me off. Instead you're turning me on. I'm feeling all right, Despite my better judgement. Cause I just want your body.

Since as how we're rolling, Better get your ass in gear, Or you'll get my full involvement, And that smile will disappear. I couldn't hang around with someone, Who wouldn't do the things you do. So take the time, And get in line, How this ends is up to you. Need some pick me up, Need some lay me down Need a place to jump, Need some thump. You say your methods don't need work, So we'll just call this play. What's good for me could be good for you, But I don't care either way. Reciprocation's coming, That's why you always stay. You've got a rhythm I can work with, And you know I've got all day. Need some pick me up, Need some lay me down Need a place to jump, Need some thump. Give me some thump.

Get out on the highway. Give yourself a chance to keep on moving on. Can’t be wrong can’t be wrong. No. Beat out a pathway. Beat yourself up to keep on moving on. No war to fight but the one inside. Let me take you to a time, when nothing mattered. Idleness wasn’t a crime, when nothing mattered. Everything fell into line, when nothing mattered. Well we have been there before And girl I swear that we can go there again. Not sick just tired. Always got to have it your way. Just getting old, like a worn in fold. Hey man what’s wrong with you? You look a little fresh and new, what’s wrong with you? What’s wrong with you? The ticking of the clock won’t ever stop. You know you’re out of luck. What’s wrong with you? What’s wrong with you? Let me take you to a time, when nothing mattered. Idleness wasn’t a crime, when nothing mattered. Everything fell into line, when nothing mattered. Well we have been there before And girl I swear that we can go there again.

Too many people got an attitude. You think getting high’s gonna bring us together. You won’t fucking remember. Too many people got an attitude. You think that this crowd makes the greatest company. It’s just a sea within a sea.

It’s not the night, It’s in between. That and the day are wrenched apart. The knives are out, And so it seems, The lightest souls are truly dark. The dark is all around me. I feel it everywhere. From every stuttered heartbeat, To every upraised hair. Because you know, what you know, But what you know, isn’t true.

You think me laid me low. With a single blow. But darling no. I don't think so. You know I'm happy to play, So long as there's a prize. You gotta front me your warmth. You gotta raise me those eyes. You know I'm happy to play, So long as there's a prize. You think you laid me low.

A fundamental hunger, Causing a dishonest sweat. She snorts herself interesting to the point of success. But it’s hard to knock back That kind of interest. At the kind of creepy disco, Even the 80’s regret. Like a hospital visit; No happiness, just relief. Another notch on the bedpost. Another trick up his sleeve. Well they might dance like it’s a metaphor, But this nightmare’s for real. This good girl’s gone bad, Too messed up to feel. Waiting for my baby at the movies she ain’t gonna come.
