Stay with me, take the night off I'll be here with the light on You decide what you abide What's the point of living If you can't have any fun? What's the point of heaven if you don't know anyone? So lay with me in the magic Breathe it in, break your habits Rest a spell then raise some hell I don't understand Why you gotta work so hard The world is full of players Only I know we're the stars What's the point of doing anything If you can't do what you want to? Stay with me in the madness Stop your toil, get distracted Honestly believe in we What's the point of loving If you keep it on the shelf? You leave me all alone and I am Nothing by myself What's the point of doing anything If you can't do what you want to do? (Instrumental) What's the point of doing anything If you can't do what you want to do? What you want to do What you want to do oo

woo oo woo oo woo oo oo Take a southbound train To a dead end street Where the dead beats meet On their losing streak Had my fill of work Gonna stay out late Strung out on sleeping Now I’m wide awake And I wanna dance around dance around, and I wanna jump around, jump around, And I wanna scream and shout, scream and shout and I wanna shout it out, shout it out, out loud Like a picture show I pretend it’s true Get a brand new view To fix my attitude I’ve been working hard Just to stay afloat I don’t to care to linger Don’t wanna be alone And I wanna dance around dance around, and I wanna jump around, jump around, And I wanna scream and shout, scream and shout and I wanna shout it out, shout it out, out loud woo oo woo oo woo oo oo

Baby I’m a bad luck charm Hanging round your neck when misfortune starts Maybe we’re just star crossed lovers Blessed with a curse we’re bound to discover’s a sign Don’t need you to be mine If I’m causing you trouble I ain’t worth the struggle dear It’s a shame I’m the source of your frustration A senseless obfuscation of pain la la oo la la la oo la la oo whoa oh Blame it on the cards I guess Cause anything you do I know you do it your best I’m not trying to force your hand You bet with good intentions, but it’s not the way you planned it this time Don’t need you to be mine (one high) If I’m causing you trouble I ain’t worth the struggle dear a slow decay from truce to altercation infatuation led us astray la la oo la la la oo la la oo whoa oh You’re gonna be better off You’re gonna make it to the top You’ll see (without me) I am just a bad luck charm Getting in your way and now I’m breaking your heart Maybe there’s no deeper meaning the dream has long been over, it’s the only thing we’re leaving behind Don’t need you to be mine If I’m causing you trouble, nothing’s worth this struggle dear But it’s okay I turn in my resignation Decline my invitation to stay Don’t want you to be mine ‘Cause I’m causing you trouble, and I ain’t struggle dear You should know Time is wasted on regretting And this is why I’m letting you go

Tired and thankless No room for the vanquished The man at the banquet Says there's plenty of food Just not for you There's no point in fighting I used to play nicely But damn Aphrodite's got a hold on me I'm not the person I used to be No one stays in their infancy I am leaving my history Who could love a fool like me? I'm beat, broke down I've got nothing to give but mystery Who could love a fool like me? I need a new love I'm kicking the old drugs To the man up above Let me go my way I've got no reason to stay I'm staring at pages I'm lost in the spaces Can’t get what they’re saying What's that say about me? I'm not the person I used to be No one stays in their infancy I am leaving my history Who could love a fool like me? I'm beat, broke down I've got nothing to give but mystery Who could love a fool like me?

Work It Out 03:59
Thinking about yesterday ringing in my head all the awful things we said We went our separate ways. I hate when we fight But I know it’s gonna be all right Sometimes I feel like walking away from it Sometimes I think that there’s nowhere to go from this But I believe that love’s what it's all about we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it Babe it’s getting late no matter where this goes you and I can take it slow babe i wish i could erase the times that we fought Blame it on a twist of fate We’ve been here before So don’t go walking out that door (walk down the road) Sometimes I think I’ve got nothing to show for it Sometimes I feel it would be better to call it quits But I believe that love’s what it's all about we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it Sometimes I fear that the best is over I’m all alone and the night’s getting colder When I’m alone I wanna cry on your shoulder It’s all my fault, I’m filling my heart with doubt we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out we’re gonna work it out

I’ve got problems, plenty of worries, weighed with issues doc can’t cure I tend to sing the blues but lately I feel fine When you’re with me I forget my troubled mind I've been rambling round this whole world Followed footsteps but what for To the ends of the earth for a sake of a search I'd ride But When I saw you I knew I finally arrived Now that I found you, won’t say goodbye Dark days are over, I’ve seen the light Had a theory that I would grow weary with nobody at my side Thanks to you I think I changed my troubled mind I's a lonely little lover, jaded Jane just a-waitin' in vain For anything to come along and break the spell of aching apathy But I made peace, honey you're the one I need Now that I found you, won’t say goodbye Dark days are over, I’ve seen the light Had a theory that I would go weary with nobody at my side Now that I found you, won’t say goodbye I couldn’t leave you, don’t wanna try Happiness may be for fools, but baby I’m the foolish kind Thanks to you I think I changed my troubled All the world awaits to be discovered Thanks to you I think I changed my troubled mind

Firewalk 03:26
come on fire walk with me through the forest pine I’ll keep you company through the darkest times the darkest times have yet to come when we’ll walk side by side we’ll take the night, light up the sky oh won’t that be divine come on fire dance with hold me in your arms I’ve been waiting patiently the calm before the storm the darkest times have yet to come hear the horned owl sing side by side, all through the night fire walk with me the darkest times are soon to come when we will be set free we’ll take the night, light up the sky fire walk with me

Pity me I’m a lonesome soul Left my home in Ohio Just to find a better place to hide Seemed all my friends were looking to me To provide a little company But that’s something I know nothing about Ain’t it strange, one such as I I could wander all my life I’m not alone, I’ve got a home And it’s out on that open road Cloud in the breeze I drift along Arrive at night, leave before dawn Don’t know where I’m going but I ain’t standing still Maybe I’ll never be satisfied Looking at life like a carnival ride It’s a cheap thrill but I don’t wanna get off Oooo… It’s all the same, everywhere I go Oooo.. Don’t know why I run, forgot what I’m hiding from Years slipped by but I woke up A sore in my back and an empty cup The fire in me turned cold dark ash Some say I’m a lonesome soul But I don’t believe everything I’m told There’s still a lot of world I have yet see

Where does the time go Why don't my mind know I'm better off leaving it alone this time I had been chasing A light that is fading I’m doing what I can to keep my hope alive I used to believe in a simple truth Followed the lead, what I'm supposed to do But now what I need is to listen to me I can't begin to know everything I thought I knew… All that I’ve been through What’s it amount to if I can’t do it better than I’ve done before For all that I’m able Maybe I should be grateful You have to brace the waves before you reach the shore I used to believe in a simple truth Followed the lead, what I'm supposed to do But now what I need is to listen to me I can't begin to know everything I thought I knew...

There's a place to escape the constant worry Where we live outside, the days are kind And there's no hurry We talk about it and dream about it I know it's out there somewhere Endless summer is a waiting for me waiting for you I know happiness lives In endless summer, endless summer Imagine we by the sea beneath the blue moon I wanna stop but can't get off don't know what to do We talk about it and dream about it I know it's out there somewhere Endless summer is a waiting for me waiting for you I know happiness lives In endless summer, endless summer We talk about it and dream about it I know it's out there somewhere Endless summer is a waiting for me waiting for you I know happiness lives In endless summer, endless summer

about

I treat these digital downloads like a tip-bucket. I know you have options to listen elsewhere in the world for virtually free, but I appreciate it all the same if you throw some in the virtual bucket. There are real hands that typed these words after all :)
