Makin love to yourself

I could be six feet under
I could be stone dead cold
Hangin’ from the highest tree
Would you read my suicide note

I’m hungry for affection
Howlin’ at the moon
Can’t you get it inside your head
All I want is you

All you’re thinking of is making love to yourself
And I wonder if there’s any room for somebody else
Come on, don’t make me wait too long
Sometimes you know, I hate being on my own
Try to give me one more chance
Because I wanna be your man
And when you call me up, I’ll be home

Train roll into the station
In the middle of the night
Me and my suitcase waiting
But you’re nowhere near in sight

Heartache’s such a bummer
Knock-knockin’ on my door
Feeling sorry for myself
I just can’t take it no more

All you’re thinking of is making love to yourself
And I wonder if there’s any room for somebody else
Come on, don’t make me wait too long
Sometimes you know, I hate being on my own
Try to give me one more chance
Because I wanna be your man

Why don’t you read my thoughts
Before I drown in tears
I’m thinkin’ about nothing
Nothin’ else but you and me

All you’re thinking of is making love to yourself
And I wonder if there’s any room for somebody else

 

Temporary madness

Take my soul, take it away from me
Take my pride, take my dignity
Weepin’ like a fool in broad daylight
And I know it just ain’t right
I just won’t listen to the sound of advice
Pray for me darling all through the night

Temporary madness, emotional overload
It only takes a dime to fall, that’s all
Temporary madness, emotional overload
Even when I lose control, I can hear you call
“Come home”

Walkin’ on home, my blood’s on fire
Feels like my veins are runnin’ dry
Jump through the mirror is what you want me to do
Stop sellin’ lies baby, buy me some truth

Temporary madness, emotional overload
It only takes a dime to fall, that’s all
Temporary madness, emotional overload
You caught me red-handed by the balls
I can hear you call
“Go home”

 

Going to the run

I could bet on new-years eve
he’d call me up at night
From the other side of the world
Ed was always there alright
Ed’s got the looks of a movie star
Ed’s got the smile of a prince
He ride a bike instead of a car
I wanna be his friend

Dancing in the living room
with the ladies so nice
Like a child with a wisdom tooth
He’s just a friend of mine
Ed’s got the rings and the colors
Ed’s got the wind in his hair
He goes a riding with the brothers
he’s got a fist in the air

Going to the run, run Angel
Going to the run, run Angel
Well, heaven and hell came together that night
Only for you this time
Going to the run, forever Angel

One summer at the festival
holding on real tight
On the back of a Harley
he took me for a ride in the sky
Ed’s got the looks of a movie star
Ed’s got the smile of a prince
He’d ride a bike instead of a car
I’ll always be his friend

Going to the run, run Angel
Going to the run, run Angel
And his wings started to shine so bright
Like a fire in the night
Going to the run, forever Angel

Going to the run, run Angel
Forever going to the run, run Angel
Well, heaven and hell came together that night
Only for you this time
Going to the run, forever Angel

 

Joe

Wake up in the morning, glad to be alive
My heart’s on fire and I’m shaking
All I want is a little peace and quiet
Stop me from going crazy yeah
Stumble to the kitchen
Flashin’ back on last night
Gotta get to work, I’ll never make it

I was hungry for action
I saw her standing there
Looking like a bomb in a basement, Yeah
She said: Hey there stranger, wanna walk into my life?
Treat a woman right, get in on tonight

Do you want to?
And I want and I want you to give it
Give it all you got, give it all it takes
Give it all you got and don’t fake it
Anything you want, I never get enough
Give it all you got

And Joe you better stop all you’re thinkin’
Stop thinking ‘bout tomorrow tonight
Joe, you better stop all your dying
Stop dying to get home alive

Faster than a bullet, hotter than a gun
Like a shootin’ star, I’ve been chasin’
I was ripping off her jacket, magic in my hands
She told me to relax and embrace her, Yeah
She said: Cool it little sinner
Got a big appetite, treat a woman right

Never get enough of your never ending love

 

Planet Blue

I stand in line for a piece of meat
My pocket’s always empty as usually
The gates of heaven I touched for you
There’s nothing more a spaceman can do

Planet Blue is my island
Mother Earth I’m coming down
Trav’ling with the speed of light, oh yeah

No one loved you as much as me
Lenin, Stalin, Marx and your KGB
I have tried to break that spell
When I threw my Roubels down the wishing-well

When I get home you touch me
Make me burn every single bridge
You’re in my law of gravity
and I know you’ll never let me go

I’m a spacey-dog, gone astray
A million miles and the job don’t pay
I’ve seen a junkyard between the stars
A lotta heavy metal and it’s coming our way

 

Bloody Buccaneers

Hey-la hey-la hey-lo

I scratch the morning with a diamond
Bucked the storm like a whore last night
I’m goin’ after that Spanish Galion
Skull, bones and dangerous

I got a tattoo big, always saved my life
A burnin’ heart with a stabbin’ knife
We swear by the bread and the wine
More serious than any divine

Hey-la hey-la hey-lo
Mexican silver, shining gold
Jewels, pearls and rum in the hold

I’m the alligator-law, chewin’ on your bait
Ransacking loading you from stern to gate
Last night I saw you against the moon
My beautiful princess white as snow

Nothing wrong about leaning on a shoulder
When you’re outta breath
Ho ho let me escort you
And take you to my cabin down below

Ah, you bring the devil out in me
Ah you make me sin baby, sin baby
Again and again

Oh yeah bloody Buccaneer

The crew’s plottin’ sharp for the prize
So I lock the door and leave a note outside
Any man break into this room
Better prepare for death and doom

I had my cutlass on her neck
Warm and white I told her
I’m a pirate from the Skeleton Isles
And I never forget the sweet things she said

Ah, you bring the devil out in me
Ah you make me sin baby, sin baby
Again and again

Oh yeah bloody Buccaneer
Mexican silver, Peruvian gold

 

One shot away from paradise

I wanna talk to you,
Please let me talk to you
But you don’t let me in
I wanna hold you
but I don’t know where to begin

One shot away from paradise
I’ll be there to open your eyes

You’re hidin’, hidin’ in your head
Layin’ on your bed
You’re zoning away, got nothing to say

You’re hiding, you lock yourself away
Day after day
But don’t you know I’m with you
It’s hard to be with you
Lemme tell ya

One shot away from paradise
I’ll be there to open your eyes

You’re smilin’, baby you’re smilin’
That’s when I know you’re coming home
That’s when I feel I’m not alone
No no

You’re crying, sometimes you’re crying
That’s when I know we’re still alive
That’s when I feel we will survive
‘Cause baby don’t you know that

One shot away from paradise
I’ll be there to open your eyes
One shot away from paradise
I’ll be there when you open your eyes
We’re just one shot away from paradise
I’ll be waiting with my arms open wide

 

When love turns to pain

She’s got the touch of an angel
She’s got hypnotizing eyes
No sign of badness
No evidence of lies
Sometimes it feels like I’m floating on cloud nine

Like changes in the weather
She flies on different feathers
Sometimes it feels like feels like I’m slowly dying

She’s got the looks of a lady
But she’s lethal like a knife
She performs to perfection
And brings you back to life
She puts magic in her power
She puts heat into your blood
But somehow I can’t handle it
And I wonder what to do
I can dream on forever
But I want a love that’s true
But somehow she has a hold on me
With a grip so tight
And I recognize the feeling
And I know… and I know that’s why

There’s no remedy. When love turns to pain

And I know she’s got me
And man, it hurts
But the pain is sweet
You can believe my words
And my mind goes blind
And I don’t give a damn
Now you think I’m crazy
So what if I am?

Yesterday I stared into the dark horizon
Now I burned my skin to your fire
It’s just the kind of light I desire
Baby I can cherish all your treasures now
Your love tells me how

She’s got the looks of a lady
But she’s lethal like a knife
She performs to perfection
And brings you back to life
She puts magic in her power
She puts heat into your blood
But somehow I can’t handle it
And I wonder what to do
I can dream on forever
But I want a love that’s true
But somehow she has a hold on me
With a grip so tight
And I recognize the feeling
And I know… and I know that’s why

There’s no remedy. When love turns to pain

 

In a bad mood

I believe I’m in a bad mood girl
And I hope it won’t last too long
Last time I had a bad mood girl
Everything turned out wrong

I’m living in a bad mood world
The heart’s bleeding, don’t it make you cry
Are you listening to the sad news, girl
It’s about another mixed-up messed-up guy

He’s goin’ through a bad dream, girl
He’s sleepin’ with his eyes open wide
He’s sleepin’ in a bad mood world
He’s livin’ and he don’t know why

Sometimes I don’t know what to do
I just wish I could fly, yeah

I can’t give it up ‘till I had enough
I wanna see the truth in your eyes
Sometimes I’m tired of livin’
I can’t give it up before I live it up
Fall in love for the rest of my life
Sometimes I’m tired of livin’
Sure as hell ain’t ready to die

You give my heart such a hard time inside
Feelin’ like a passenger on a roller-coaster ride
Through the cold moonlight
Just show me where the good time’s rolling
Lemme eat a slice of that pie
Show me where they go out moon-beaming
And I shoot ‘em all from the sky

Sometimes I don’t know what to do
I just wish I could fly, yeah

I can’t give it up ‘till I had enough
I wanna see the truth in your eyes
Sometimes I’m tired of livin’
I can’t give it up before I live it up
Fall in love for the rest of my life
Sometimes I’m tired of livin’
Sure as hell ain’t ready to die

I can’t give it, don’t wanna give it up…

 

Pourin’ my heart out again

Another hour past midnight
Moonshine through the skylight
The bottle’s empty and my mind is full
Of your ghost that keeps hauntin’ this room

And I could spend all my life
Just sittin’ here paralyzed
And I could spend all my life
Waitin’ for you to materialize

Love was the only thing
I always felt for you
Bigger than anything
Baby I die for you

Hold me cause I think I’m falling
Like rain on a Monday morning
And when it rains I’m pourin’
My heart out again

I can’t remember, I can’t forget
I can’t see ‘cause my eyes are wet
The bottle’s empty and it says: you fool
How many tears do I spill for you?

I could spend all my life
Just sittin’ here paralyzed
I could spend all my life
Like a thorn of glass in your eye
