She’s got a certain of smile, The kind that really speaks to me. Makes my life seem all worthwhile, Lifts me up and sets me free! Now I’m strong like Superman, Since she came into my world. And her wish is my command, She’s a very special girl! I’m the luckiest man in the world, I’m the luckiest man alive! Lucky to have a girl like her, right by my side. I’m the luckiest man in the world, I’m the luckiest man alive!

Rag Doll 03:59 video
Throw away your silly little rag doll, she’s just a plaything, she’s just a toy. Can’t you see that you’re wasting your attention, playing with the little girls that were made for little boys? When she tells you that she loves you, I don’t know if it means the same thing to me. ‘Cause I’m always thinking of you and all I want is for you to be happy. Open up your toy chest and find something better. You got a lot of games that you can play. You got the best toys in the whole damn town, so pick up your rag doll and throw it away. When she tells you that she loves you, I don’t know if it means the same thing to me. ‘Cause I’m always thinking of you and all I want is for you to be happy.

You got a lot of nerve, telling her how to run her life. You got a lot nerve, that’s right… I’m gonna watch and learn, as you crash and burn. She doesn’t have to take it anymore. You’re money won’t bail you out, whenever you scream and shout. That paper tiger has lost its roar. And you got a lot of nerve, telling her how to run her life. You got a lot nerve, that’s right… You’ll get what you deserve. All that’s wrong will soon be right; tables are gonna turn tonight All the bags are packed, she’s not coming back. You’re on your own, she’s out the door. You took it way too far-she knows just who YOU are! All this time, just talking trash. And you got a lot of nerve, telling her how to run her life. You got a lot nerve, that’s right… You’ll get what you deserve. All that’s wrong will soon be right; tables are gonna turn tonight I heard you put her down-talk to her like a clown. How could you treat someone like that? A victim of your abuse, she now knows the truth. She’s coming home with me tonight! And you got a lot of nerve, telling her how to run her life. You got a lot nerve, that’s right… You’ll get what you deserve. All that’s wrong will soon be right; tables are gonna turn tonight! Tonight! Tonight!

50 shades of whatever, I can tell that you just don’t care. Trying to find the genie a bottle? Guess what? There’s nothing there! We all grind our way through the day to day routine, trying to find a way to start livin’ the dream. Livin’ the dream! Every day 9 to 5 sucks the life out of your soul. The dead end world makes you feel like you got no self control We all grind our way through the day to day routine, trying to find a way to start livin’ the dream. Livin’ the dream!

Dreaming of a better time, when you used to ease my mind- memories from long ago. Another time, another place…all the happiness we chased. So many things we didn’t know… Faded photos on the wall are the memories that call-disconnected from my mind. Disconnected… Circumstances of the soul, made me lose my self control-just some time to be with you. Moonlit nights and river walks…special places, lover’s talk…hollow words that don’t ring true. All the messages were saved, now I’ve thrown them all away-disconnected from my mind. Disconnected… So, I take it kind of slow, ‘cause I got now where to go. I think of all the time gone by… To me, it didn’t seem that long, and you say that you’ve “moved on” – no final kiss, no last goodbye… Close the door and drive away, is there nothing more to say? Disconnected from my mind… Disconnected.

You have to make it happen, just like in a book. You have to be forgiven-I’m willing to take a look. But I can’t be the one to take it all for you. YOU have to be the one to make your dreams come true You need a real solution! Simple Simon says, “to make a contribution in your best interests!” But I can’t be the one to take it all for you. YOU have to be the one to make your dreams come true Make your excuses, it all sounds SO good. List the abuses-makes you feel so misunderstood! But I can’t be the one to take it all for you. YOU have to be the one to make your dreams come true

Turn the record over; let’s listen to it one more time, again. I’m glad that we’re both sober, ‘cause there’s a chance that you might be my friend! Maybe a million times, I’ve said it all, and never even used a single word. Can’t you just give a sign, and let me know? I feel as if our love is on the verge… And I can’t find the key to unlock all the secrets that you keep. You keep asking questions…you’re scaring me! Am I just in too deep? Maybe a million times, I’ve said it all, and never even used a single word. Can’t you just give a sign, and let me know? I feel as if our love is on the verge…

Looking for you, wherever you go…To tell you the truth, it’s the devil you know. Mary Margaret’s got a story that she’s willing to tell, on the day she’s feeling up to it. You gotta lean in real close, ‘cause she don’t see so well, and she wants to put a face to it. See the spark in her eyes. Hear the crack in her voice, as she reaches back to long ago. Before the drink and the drug, took her house and her home…left her with this so-called life she knows. Bobby’s out on Mass. Ave., somewhere close to route 2, holding up his tattered cardboard sign. Just a couple of bucks, is all that he needs. Score some hits; then he can go get high. Plastic bag full of clothes, it’s all that he owns. Yeah, he says his life is gonna change. Passes out in the park, where he’ll sleep until dawn. In the morning, things are still the same. Looking for you, wherever you go…To tell you the truth, it’s the devil you know. Aldo’s flat on his back, in a hospital bed. It’s where he’s gonna end his days. Lived a life that was full, filled with sin and regrets, and some magic moments on the way. But the cancer is strong, and he’s trying to hang on. You know it’s gonna get him in the end. Hallelujah, Amen! Another death of a friend! There’s no way back, no, we can’t just pretend! Looking for you, wherever you go…To tell you the truth, it’s the devil you know.

Pieces of eight, from my shattered treasure chest of songs. I can relate… every tale, suburban love gone wrong. Grinding it out, even when there was no one there. Now that you’re gone, I wonder who’s still around that even cares? You disappeared, but your voice was always in my head. Up through the years, all those teenage dreams that now are dead. That sadness was sweet, bringing me down, only to lift me up! It’s stuck on repeat. Over and over again, let’s blow it up! It’s only a memory for me to keep… The sound still comes to me, somewhere behind the wall of sleep. I just can’t let it go…

He broke his back, so his kids could be warm and safe at night. They took his tax, just to pay for the military might. Is this what you call standing up for your rights? While the masters of war are knocking at your door tonight! I just want to find a little truth… I suffer from my point of view… I got something to scream and shout! I am telling you to COUNT ME OUT, Alright!
