Lovely Lee has got it going on, she's the reason for this song. She's the one that really turns me on, Lovely Lee has got it going on, so strong. Lovely Lee is just the girl for me, she's the one to set me free. Lovely Lee has got it all worked out-Lovely Lee is just the girl for me, no doubt And I would follow her on a plane, if the idea wasn't so insane. California, New Mexico-anywhere, I think I gotta go. Lovely Lee has got it going on, she's the reason for this song. She's the one that really turns me on, Lovely Lee has got it going on, so strong.

We could talk for hours and reminisce about the things we said, And I could bring you flowers and we could wake up in your bed. But that's not enough for me No, its not the way that we should be I know you won't see me anymore So there's always tomorrow and we might think of something yet, While drowning away our sorrows and filling up on this emptiness. But that's not enough for me No, its not the way that we should be I know you won't see me anymore. You won't see me.

The Tab 03:18
Drink down all of your whiskey, and order it up once again. Everybody knows your misery, is your one and only friend. And it doesn't really matter, what she thinks of you anymore. You can wear the scarlet letter, cause this town knows you're a whore Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, pour your drinks at the bar. Offering up your salvation, in a shot glass for every scar. But your penance is never done, so you keep drinking till you drop. You're so drunk, you don't care, and now you don't know how to stop. Now it's time, to pay the tab. Now it's time to pay... So your vision is getting clouded, with all of the things you can't see. Wash away all the doubting Thomas philosophy. And she still says "hello", but it's in a different way. You're so drunk you don't care, cause she stole your heart away. Now it's time, to pay the tab. Now it's time to pay...

They say I'm absent minded, sometimes I don't even know my own name, But I feel O.K. today And I don't need to be reminded, nothing ever stays the same, Another change is on its way So I'm asking you my love, with the help from God above, To try to work it through, you know I'm still in love with you. We'll take it one step at a time, and if we do we just might find, That it will be alright, you know, I think we're gonna be alright. They say I'm too one sided,somebody else always takes the blame. It's a critical parade. And so the house is divided, but nothing's been decided. Another chance to find our way They say I'm absent minded, sometimes I don't even know my own name, But I feel O.K. today...

A pair of scissors to my favorite shirt, you cut it into pieces, Does that make you feel proud? And when I try to play my favorite song, cranking it on the radio, You tell me it's too loud. But I keep on hangin' around You don't like any of the shoes I wear, the way I shave and cut my hair, You tell me I'm not clean. And when I try to hail you up at night, and party until the morning light, You tell me I'm just mean. But I keep on hangin' around Pushing me to be a man, give it time, please understand, You're gonna push me out that door... I keep on hangin' around...

Summer 03:40 video
Summer's comin' round that bend again, and you can feel the heat. Mini skirts and summer curls to greet you, the girls are on the street. Yeah, they stop to say "hello" to you, you're somehow incomplete. Dreaming of a world away from here, a place you'd rather be. Ice cream cones like memories, that melt away beneath the sun. Crystal clear inside your mind again, then suddenly they're gone. Yeah, you still can feel the heat around you, you're not the only one. Summer's comin' round that bend again, and you just want to run... We can make it work this time, please... Tell me again, how you'd love to be my friend. Whisper in my ear, all the words I long to hear. Cause it's true, I don't want nobody but you this time around. We can make it work this time around.

Paper Cut 04:00
Live my life inside a coffee cup, I'm looking up to see... A world that's pretty big to me. Like a paper cut that only hurts each time I smile, A double edged reminder, telling me all lies, all the while... Smoke a morning cigarette, and think of all the things to get... Its a complicated scene. When you find out what it takes, will you learn from your mistakes? You can do just what you please.. Like a paper cut that only hurts each time I smile, A double edged reminder, telling me all lies, all the while... Live my life inside a plastic cup, I'm looking up to see... A world that's emptier than me. Easy come and easy go, the more you live, the less you know... You can do just what you please... Like a paper cut that only hurts each time I smile, A double edged reminder, telling me all lies...

Here I Am 04:18
I know that waiting for the hourglass, feels so slow, got to get away. Come down, join us in the shallows. Never let them see, never take it in stray. Spent time, drifting on the underground. The old new you took a temporary waltz. No time, when you take it in the head, playing' out the part of another lost cause. Here I am, caught up the middle, waiting for the likes to throw in a line. Everybody watching, choking on the splinters, sort of make you feel like its never been right. It's never been so right. This swing is rusting with the best of them, the chains we held, hold us from the fall. Come down, joins us in the shallows, you know you're gonna find they don't know you at all. Have you ever tried to reach the point of it? Taken the time to write it all down? Hold tight, we're hanging from the cellars, never cover up your ears, never cover up the sound. Here I am, caught up the middle, waiting for the likes to throw in a line. Everybody watching, choking on the splinters, sort of make you feel like its never been right. It's never been so right. After all, here's a chance to take part in a world that's come undone. Hold you head to the walls, hear the sounds of anyone. Who can save all the thoughts and the dreams of every child? Who was sent to believe that all things can be better? They shall not be learned to raise the shine. Here I am, caught up the middle, waiting for the likes to throw in a line. Everybody laughing, choking on the splinters, sort of make you feel like its never been right. It's never been so right.

Wind me up just like a clock, you can hear me ticking. Spin me down just like a top, I'm alive and kicking. But I'm a screw without the threads, when it comes back 'round to you. Turning hopelessly instead, help me please, what can I do? I am lost inside this innocence, it's true.... I'm your embarrassment. Take me out, but please don't tell. You know that I'm the shy kind. We know the secret, oh, so well. What do you think we might find? That we're just a mystery, spending all this precious time. Its so easy to pretend, when its all inside your mind. I am lost inside this in a sense, it's true.... I'm your embarrassment.

Save a smile for the lucky face, must be the lonely one in me. Take a chance and lose your ace, help the blind before they see. All the alone with the windows drawn, she make it oh, so hard, to see. Not a chance with the t.v. on, you don't know what it's like to be me... Everybody makes you feel O.K.... Shook down in my favorite shoes, a little love of a different kind. Have faith in the sun you choose, pull the blind before it's time. Everybody makes you feel O.K.... Good day till we meet again, must be the fortunate son in me. Want five for an extra ten, or so I was lead to believe. Everybody makes you feel O.K....
