Light Up the Room

length: 3:54

Another late night, looking at her
All her exes never mattered
She don't break hearts, they get shattered
They get shattered
People talking, chitter chatter
She calls shotgun, people scatter
She go bang bang, 'til it splatters
'Til it splatters

She got me losing touch
She got me losing faith
Making the same excuses
For the same mistakes
Before it all goes dark
Before I fade away
I wanna turn you on
Watch you illuminate

When you walk in you light up the room
Light up the room
Light up the room
When you walk in you light up the room
Light up the room
And I see nothing but you

All that glitz and all that glamour
Wearing rings like she was Saturn
That's that sci-fi **** I'm after
**** I'm after

She got me losing touch
She got me losing faith
Making the same excuses
For the same mistakes
Before it all goes dark
Before I fade away
I wanna turn you on
Watch you illuminate

When you walk in you light up the room
Light up the room
Light up the room
When you walk in you light up the room
Light up the room
And I see nothing but you

You throw game like daggers I'm aware
Leave behind cadavers everywhere
Mind full of dark matter, best beware
Leave the morning after, don't you dare

When you walk in you light up the room
Light up the room
Light up the room
When you walk in you light up the room
Light up the room
And I see nothing but you

Bonnie I Want You

length: 3:13
What you gonna do when the drugs run out?
Standing in the street with your **** out
Bonnie, I want you
Bonnie, I want you
What you gonna do when the sun comes up?
Trying to get a ride with the ****-ups
Bonnie, I want you
Bonnie, I want you

Once you know the way out
It's even harder to stay out
Once you know the things they're saying
You know all of the games they're playing
Only thing that's true
Is Bonnie, I want you

What you gonna do when the buzz wears off
And you wake up in the corner with your clothes off
Bonnie, I want you
Bonnie, I want you
What you gonna do when the truth sets in?
Nobody's around to sink your teeth in
Bonnie, I want you
Bonnie, I want you

Once you know the way out
It's even harder to stay out
Once you know the things they're saying
You know all of the games they're playing
Only thing that's true
Is Bonnie, I want you

One, two, three, the radio's playing
Four, five, six, the chemical's fading
Seven, eight, nine, ten, wanna see you again
One, two, three, the radio's playing
Four, five, six, the chemical's fading
Seven, eight, nine, ten, wanna see you again

What you gonna do when the drugs run out?
Standing in the street with your **** out
Bonnie, I want you
Bonnie, I want you
What you gonna do when the sun comes up
Trying to get a ride with the ****-ups
Bonnie, I want you
Bonnie, I want you

Once you know the way out
It's even harder to stay out
Once you know the things they're saying
You know all of the games they're playing
Only thing that's true
Is Bonnie, I want you

One, two, three, the radio's playing
Four, five, six, the chemical's fading
Seven, eight, nine, ten, wanna see you again
One, two, three, the radio's playing
Four, five, six, the chemical's fading
Seven, eight, nine, ten, wanna see you again
I wanna see you again
I wanna see you again
I wanna see you again

Call Me

length: 4:06
I'm sorry 'bout last night
I called you to apologize
But I'm not sure my voicemail went through

That sad look in your eyes
Cut me deep like a sharp knife
I don't know how to make it up to you

You can call me a lot of things
You can call me this and call me that
(When you gonna call me?)
You can call me a lot of things
But I just wish you would call me back
(When you gonna call me?)

Call me!
You know I'm waiting
Know I'm waiting by the phone
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me
You know I'm waiting
Know I'm waiting all alone
(When you gonna call me?)
Every time my phone lights up
I'm so let down
(When you gonna call me?)
How long you gon' keep this up?
I need you now
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me!

Call me
Call me
(Call me, call me, call me)
Call me
(Call me, call me, call me)

I wish I could rewind
Go back to the good times
The sunsets out in Malibu
When my hand fit just right
In the back pocket of your Levi's
I wish I was back there with you

You can call me a lot of things
You can call me this and call me that
(When you gonna call me?)
You can call me a lot of things
But I just wish you would call me back
(When you gonna call me?)

Call me!
You know I'm waiting
Know I'm waiting by the phone
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me
You know I'm waiting
Know I'm waiting all alone
(When you gonna call me?)
Every time my phone lights up
I'm so let down
(When you gonna call me?)
How long you gon' keep this up?
I need you now
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me!

Call me
Call me
(Call me, call me, call me)
Call me
(Call me, call me, call me)

Ooh, I can't live with out you
Ooh, know I'm all about you

Call me!
You know I'm waiting
Know I'm waiting by the phone
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me
You know I'm waiting
Know I'm waiting all alone
(When you gonna call me?)
Every time my phone lights up
I'm so let down
(When you gonna call me?)
How long you gon' keep this up?
I need you now
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me!

(Call me, call me, call me)
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me!
(Call me, call me, call me)
(When you gonna call me?)
Call me!
(Call me, call me, call me)
Call me!
(Call me, call me, call me)

Top of the World

length: 4:13
I'm feeling rich but I got no money
I'm in a ditch but at least it's sunny
I'm, I'm on, I'm on top, of the world

I've got the itch but my nose ain't runny
She's such a ***** but she thinks I'm funny
I'm, I'm on, I'm on top, of the world

So much love
I'm giving it away, giving it away
Three, two, one, I'm 'bout to elevate, 'bout to elevate

I'm on top
I'm on top of the world
I just can't stop
I'm on top of the world
I'm never coming down now
I'm on top of the world
Livin' my life
I'm on top of the world
I'm dancin' all night
I'm on top of the world
I'm never coming down, never coming down
(No!)
I'm on top of the world

I'm out of chips but I'm still high rolling
I'm drunk as **** but I'll keep on floating
I'm, I'm on, I'm on top, of the world

I can't sleep but I'm always dreaming
I feel the heat but I got no demons
I'm, I'm on, I'm on top, of the world

So much love
I'm giving it away, giving it away
Three, two, one, I'm 'bout to elevate, 'bout to elevate

I'm on top
I'm on top of the world
I just can't stop
I'm on top of the world
I'm never coming down now
I'm on top of the world
Livin' my life
I'm on top of the world
I'm dancin' all night
I'm on top of the world
I'm never coming down, never coming down
(No!)
I'm on top of the world

Of the world

Bury Me

length: 3:33
Every whisper
Is like a symphony to me
And every morning
Another opportunity
To be with you, the one I love
See you shining in the sun
And every evening
In the blankets, bury me
Bury me

Sinking slowly into your heart
I will always be where you are
Dig a hole for me in your soul
Pull me in and don't let me go
No, no

Bury me, bury me
Lay your loving down upon me
Let it rain down on my body
Bury me, bury me
Suffocate me with your love
Yeah, I can never get enough
Please bury me

Bury me, please bury me

Every picture
Of you is like a masterpiece
And every love song
We're toe to toe and cheek to cheek
To dance with you, the one I love
Hold you close and turn you up
And every midnight
Come to bed and bury me
Bury me

Sinking slowly into your heart
I will always be where you are
Dig a hole for me in your soul
Pull me in and don't let me go
No, no

Bury me, bury me
Lay your loving down upon me
Let it rain down on my body
Bury me, bury me
Suffocate me with your love
Yeah, I can never get enough
Please bury me

Bury me, please bury me
Bury me, please bury me
Bury me, please bury me

Bury me, bury me
Lay your loving down upon me
Let it rain down on my body
Bury me, bury me
Suffocate me with your love
Yeah, I can never get enough
Please bury me

Bury me, please bury me
Bury me, please bury me
Bury me, please bury me
Bury me, please bury me

Your Body

length: 3:09
My favorite pastime is
Getting lost beneath your eyelids
I can't stop staring at you
And lately, my heartbeat's been studying your body
Now I know just what to do

I don't know nobody
Like I know your body
Every shape, every curve
Every twist and every turn
I don't want nobody
If it ain't your body
I'll keep you forever satisfied, you'll see
'Cause nobody knows your body like me

Each freckle, I outline
I'll keep on taking my time
Kissing the space in between (kissing the space in between)
Spend all day admiring
Your dimples when you're smiling
So keep on smiling at me

I don't know nobody
Like I know your body
Every shape, every curve
Every twist and every turn
I don't want nobody
If it ain't your body
I'll keep you forever satisfied, you'll see
'Cause nobody knows your body like me

I'll ace any pop quiz, baby, with my eyes closed
'Cause I know every inch from your head to your toes

I don't know nobody
Like I know your body
Every shape, every curve
Every twist and every turn
I don't want nobody
If it ain't your body
I'll keep you forever satisfied, you'll see (oh-oh-oh-oh)
'Cause nobody knows your body like
Nobody knows your body like
Nobody knows your body like me

Sick of Love

length: 3:19
Take me out
Take me some place
Broken people go
Nice and dark, you should know
You should know

I'm impatient
Got no expectations
Emotionally vacant, let's just go
Let's just go

Love was something I used to believe in
I've been burned too many times before
Hope is fading, my heart needs replacing
It can't feel a thing anymore

I'm so sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
So sick of love
I'm so sick of love

Let's keep driving
Let's keep "never mind"-ing
The world we can hide, just stay low
Just stay low

Salty lashes
Behind these sunglasses
There's no coming back once we go
Once we go

Love was something I used to believe in
I've been burned too many times before
Hope is fading, my heart needs replacing
It can't feel a thing anymore

I'm so sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
So sick of love
I'm so sick of love
I'm so sick of love

Take it step by step
Take it day by day
Take it line by line
Push it all away

I'ma drink this drink
'Til I lose my mind
Every girl I know
Leave 'em all behind

Love was something I used to believe in
I've been burned too many times before
Hope is fading, my heart needs replacing
It can't feel a thing anymore

I'm so sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
(Love! La-la-la-la-la)
So sick of love
So sick of love
(Hey!)
I'm so sick of love
I'm so sick of love
I'm so sick of love

No Imitations

length: 4:16
We go out at night and the spotlight's on you
Every single eye stuck to you like glue
Dolled up to the nines, yeah, you outshine diamonds
Darling, you do (darling, you do)

And when the morning comes and the sunlight's creepin'
And you wanna hide underneath your sheets
Even wide awake with your makeup streaking
You're still a dream (you're still a dream)

Now that I found you
I won't accept no imitations
Now that I found you
I won't accept no imitations

No, I don't want nobody else
No, I don't want nobody
No, I don't want nobody else
(No, I don't want nobody)
No, I don't want nobody else
No, I don't want nobody
No, I don't want nobody else
(No, I don't want nobody)

You're my irreplaceable, one and only
Nothing can compare to the love we make
I know that I never will be lonely
When I see your face (when I see your face)

Now that I found you
I won't accept no imitations
Now that I found you
I won't accept no imitations

No, I don't want nobody else
No, I don't want nobody
No, I don't want nobody else
(No, I don't want nobody)
No, I don't want nobody else
No, I don't want nobody
No, I don't want nobody else
(No, I don't want nobody)

No contest, I won't accept no imitations
Nothing less, I won't accept no imitations

(No, I don't want nobody)
No, I don't want nobody else
No, I don't want nobody
No, I don't want nobody else
(No, I don't want nobody)
No, I don't want nobody else
No, I don't want nobody
No, I don't want nobody else

Now that I found you
I won't accept no imitations
(Won't accept no imitations)
Now that I found you
I won't accept no imitations
(Won't accept no imitations)

Low

length: 4:03
Low, another night at the bar 'cause I just can't deal with it
Low, judging everyone else like a goddamn hypocrite
Low, used to love living life now I'm just so sick of it
Low, low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow
Low, when she just broke my heart and I see here everywhere
Low, and I talk to myself 'cause I know nobody's there
Low, I got death at my door knocking, I'm not even scared
Low, low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

I have been held high in such a while
Been such a long time since I could smile
Just keep your distance
Don't need assistance, no
Low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

Low, well I'm trying my best but I'm just not good enough
Low, and I do stupid **** that I know I shouldn't have
Low, I can **** but I can't come and keep up with love
Low, low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

I have been held high in such a while
Been such a long time since I could smile
Just keep your distance
Don't need assistance, no
Low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

I've never been so low
Never been so low
Never been so low
Never been so low
Never been so low
Never been so low
Never been so low
Low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

I have been held high in such a while
Been such a long time since I could smile
Just keep your distance
Don't need assistance, no
Low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

I have been held high in such a while
Been such a long time since I could smile
Just keep your distance
Don't need assistance, no
Low, low, low, low, lo-oh-oh, oh-ow

Lying About Me and You

length: 3:13
I should've known better than to kiss you so hard
We had no choice but to fall in love, love
I should've known better than to take this so far
Can't let him know about the two of us

I'll spend the last of my life with a guilty conscience
Don't tell a soul about tonight
To the grave we take this
I'll spend the rest of my life
Spend the rest of my li-i-ife
Lying about me and you
Lying about me and you
Lying about me and you
I'll spend the rest of my life
Spend the rest of my li-i-ife
Lying about me and you

I should've known better than to text you late night
Too many drinks and we're vulnerable
I should've known better than to touch you just right
Got nosy, sure couldn't handle ya

I'll spend the last of my life with a guilty conscience
Don't tell a soul about tonight
To the grave we take this
I'll spend the rest of my life
Spend the rest of my li-i-ife
Lying about me and you
Lying about me and you
Lying about me and you
I'll spend the rest of my life
Spend the rest of my li-i-ife
Lying about me and you

Can't wait anymore
Close the bedroom door
Up my sheets you crawl
No regrets at all

I'll spend the last of my life with a guilty conscience
Don't tell a soul about tonight
To the grave we take this
I'll spend the rest of my life
Spend the rest of my li-i-ife
Lying about me and you
Lying about me and you
Lying about me and you
I'll spend the rest of my life
Spend the rest of my li-i-ife
Lying about me and you

I Should Be Dead Right Now

length: 3:26
Last night I drank too much
Don't know when enough's enough
Ended up on a roof downtown
Doing shots 'til the place shut down

Few missed calls on my phone
Don't know how I made it home
Woke up with a pounding head
All the sheets coming off my bed

This life got no escape
Go hard 'til I can't see straight
Sunlight burning my eyes
How the **** am I still alive?

Oh, oh, oh
Man, I should be dead right now
Oh, oh, oh
Man, I should be dead right now
Dead right now
I should be dead

Last night meant nothing at all
I don't see it as a wake up call
Gonna do it all again tonight
Going out, getting myself right

This life got no escape
Go hard 'til I can't see straight
Sunlight burning my eyes
How the **** am I still alive?

Oh, oh, oh
Man, I should be dead right now
Dead right now
I should be dead
Oh, oh, oh
Man, I should be dead right now
I should be dead right now
I should be dead

Running out of time
Running out of luck
I don't get it, what, can't you see?
Never giving up
Fill another cup
Gonna raise it up, toast to me!

Running out of time

Sunlight burning my eyes
How the **** am I still alive?

Oh, oh, oh

Lips

length: 3:21
(Lips)

I'm feeling so nostalgic, nostalgic
Your lips are something magic, magic
I just wanna feel them one more time

I heard you got a new man, new man
Girl, why'd you go and do that, do that
Give that boy a little kiss goodbye

What I wouldn't give to feel those lips again
Feel them on my skin again
Why aren't you here with me now?
What I wouldn't do to hear them whispering
Goosebumps on my skin again
Why aren't you here with me now?
Why aren't you here with me now?

(Lips)

I know I'm always busy, busy
Non-stop city to city
You weren't ready for that high speed life

But it gets lonely on the tour bus, tour bus
And there's room here for the two of us, two of us
Just in case you ever change your mind

What I wouldn't give to feel those lips again
Feel them on my skin again
Why aren't you here with me now?
What I wouldn't do to hear them whispering
Goosebumps on my skin again
Why aren't you here with me now?
Why aren't you here with me now?

(Lips)

It's three A.M.
Scrolling through the photos that you sent back then
Reading all the messages, remembering
And all I wanna do right now is call you
But I know that I can't call you
God, I wish that I could call you

What I wouldn't give to feel those lips again
Feel them on my skin again
Why aren't you here with me now?
What I wouldn't do to hear them whispering
Goosebumps on my skin again
Why aren't you here with me now?
Why aren't you here with me now?
(Lips)
Why aren't you here with me now?
(Lips)
Why aren't you here with me now?

No Tears

length: 4:15
So what did you think was going to happen?
You keep coming back to this girl
And she keeps on doing the same thing over and over again
Like you think she's gonna change
But she never does, she never changes
So maybe it's you who needs to change
Maybe it's you who needs to wake up

My reflection is crystal clear
Through the cracks in this broken mirror
You and I are both grown-ups here
So don't

Don't you go crying no tears
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Take your feelings and hide 'em
Roll them up and ignite 'em
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Stop pretending it's passion
Such an overreaction
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears

So what?
Now you're gonna cry about it like that's gonna solve anything?
You're gonna let this girl make you feel so low, so desperate
No, this girl's a poison
She does nothing but make you feel
Dead inside you gotta walk away, it's over
I swear this time
It's gotta be over

My reflection is crystal clear
(My reflection is crystal clear)
Through the cracks in this broken mirror
(Through the cracks in this broken mirror)
You and I are both grown-ups here
(You and I are both grown-ups here)
So don't

Don't you go crying no tears
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Take your feelings and hide 'em
Roll them up and ignite 'em
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Stop pretending it's passion
Such an overreaction
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears

Tears, tears, tears
Tears, tears, tears
Tears, tears, tears
Tears, tears, tears

Tears, tears, tears
Tears, tears, tears
Tears, tears, tears
Tears, tears, tears

Don't you go crying no tears
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
Take your feelings and hide 'em
Roll them up and ignite 'em
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
(Tears, tears, tears)
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears
(Tears, tears, tears)
Stop pretending it's passion
(Tears, tears, tears)
Such an overreaction
(Tears, tears, tears)
Don't you go crying no
Don't you go crying no tears

End of the World

length: 4:05
This might be the end of the world
So we might as well keep dancing

I found Jesus the other day
He was eating hamburgers in a Chevrolet
Didn't have time to save the day, oh no

You go ahead, I'mma stay back
Don't wanna get caught in a freak attack
Don't wanna throw down with a maniac, oh no

But if I don't go out tonight, don't go out tonight
How will I fall in love?
But if I don't go out tonight, don't go out tonight
How will I fall in love?

This might be the end of the world
So we might as well keep dancing
This might be the end of the world
So it's time to take some chances
Let's all get up, up, up
Let's fall in love, love, love
Until time is up, up, up
Let's fall in love, love, love

All flights grounded at JFK
There's a hurricane blowing almost everyday
Fault lines rumbling, about to quake, oh no

Tv's got me paranoid
Wall street crashed into a void
Losing my job to an android, oh no

But if I don't go out tonight, don't go out tonight
How will I fall in love?
But if I don't go out tonight, don't go out tonight
How will I fall in love?

This might be the end of the world
So we might as well keep dancing
This might be the end of the world
So it's time to take some chances
Let's all get up, up, up
Let's fall in love, love, love
Until time is up, up, up
Let's fall in love, love, love

This might be the end of the world
So we might as well keep dancing

This might be the end of the world
(End of the world)
So we might as well keep dancing
(Keep dancing, yea)
This might be the end of the world
(End of the world, oooo)
So it's time to take some chances
(Take chances, yea)
Let's all get up, up, up
Let's fall in love, love, love
Until time is up, up, up
