I love it in your room at night
You're the only one who gets through to me
In the warm glow of the candlelight
Oh, I wonder what you're gonna do to me

In your room
I come alive when I'm with you
I'll do anything you want me to
In your room

I love it in your room all day
When you're gone I like to try on all your clothes
You won't regret it if you let me stay
I'll teach you everything that a boy should know

In your room
I'm alive when I'm with you
Gonna make your dreams come true
In your room

I feel good in your room
Let's lock the world out
Feels so good when we kiss
Nobody ever made me crazy like this

I'll do anything you want me to
I only want to be with you
In your room
In your room

Valerie is beautiful
But she seems a little bit confused
The life you offer her she says
She cannot use

You live in another world
She thinks she won't fit in
And oh, what about her plans for him
She bends to his will

Hey, you better listen
'Cause I'm warning you
Love is never simple
With a complicated girl

You call her on the phone
She's got the other guy on hold
You see the scene unfold
You know it very well

Stay inside your room all day
When she doesn't call you pull the shades
Never seen you act this way
The girl has hit you hard

Why bother making rules you know
She will not follow
Someday she'll find a way to remedy
This lovely mess she's made of you

writer: Debbi Peterson, Vicki Peterson
She walks in the room
And checks out the faces
We think she's all the seven wonders of the world
But there's a sadness
Hidden in the bizarre
Moonlight and madness
Living in a bell jar

She dresses in black
'Cause sorrow is a magnet
Everything comes to her like it was meant to be
But she's frustrated
Leaving things as they are
What she created
Living in a bell jar

She feels so at home
She's never alone
But she's oh so lonely
What is the crime
In knowing your mind
Set it free

Attached to a mirror
In her glass-sided prison
She writes the note that will excuse her from this world
It's complicated
Living in a bell jar
She suffocated
Living in a bell jar

When I saw you for the first time
Eyes the color of the ocean
Something moved inside of me
Long forgotten lying broken

Now I can't turn away
Watching you as you lay sleeping
Can you hear winds of change
Is this something to believe in

I lost direction in the darkness
Couldn't stop myself from running
I could feel the sun on my back
But I was afraid to let the light in

Now I can't run anymore
Now I see this gift you bring me
Can you hear winds of change
Maybe this loser's luck is turning

I will carry you in my heart
I will hold you in my memory
You could be a million miles away
But when I call
You will hear me

writer: Susanna Hoffs, Tom Kelly, Billy Steinberg
Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Is this burning an eternal flame

I believe it's meant to be, darling
I watch you when you are sleeping
You belong with me
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame

Say my name sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling

Thanks to Laszlo for the correction

Out my window
The rain starts to fall
And the wind blows
Through an empty hall
In the mirror
Reflections of you

In the distance I hear a sound
Is that you coming around

Oh, what you gonna do
I think I should be with you
A love that's overdue
Oh I think I should be with you

Thought I saw you
In a stranger's face
Should I call you
Or should I walk away
'Round the corner
Is around the world

Is that you looking at me
Or am I living a dream

And when I'm lost in a dream
You are all I can see
All alone in the night I'm waiting for you
Every moment I'd die
Just to look in your eyes
The dream is alive

I'm waiting
Oh my, how I try
To make you see that
I should be with you

Denny was working it real hard
Down Sunset boulevard
Back in 1973
Why would he bother going home
His parents left him on his own
Who knows
Maybe they were out getting stoned

I don't really know
How we survived the glitter years
What did we do it all for
Do you remember the glitter years

We were the lost and lonely ones
We hid in the discotheques all night long
'Till we could see the morning sun
Denny was king,
he'd rock the place
Dressed like a working girl
from outer space

He was dancing like he wanted to dance
His life away
In December of '74 Denny wrecked
His father's car
Driving home that night he was singing
"You better Hang on to Yourself"

I hear you through the wire
The words all sound like noise
What happened to the fire in your voice

Don't try to hide the distance
It's just too big to ignore
We work it out like business
It won't work anymore

I remember eyes that shine
As they looked so hard back into mine
Now it's just a memory
So I'll set you free

I'll set you free
Still sometimes late at night
Moonlight comes into my window
I make believe it's how it used to be

We made it look so easy
We never tried to resist
Somehow you stopped believing
Somehow we've come to this

I remember eyes that shined
As they looked so hard back into mine
Now it's just a memory
So I'll set you free
I remember words that fell

Like coins into a wishing well
It was never meant to be
So I'll set you free
I'll set you free

So now that I must go on
What more can I do
What good is being strong
When all I ever really want is you

writer: Vicki Peterson, Susanna Hoffs
Watching the sky
And the moon we both lie under
Miles and miles between us
It makes me wonder
Are you watching the sky too?

You fly in circles around the dark side of your soul
While I'm flying in this airplane with no sense of control
Black sky wraps around us
Like skin it keeps us whole
And are you watching the sky too?

Big hotel island in a small town
They send me flowers for my room
But tonight I'll drink their wind
Tonight I'm gonna have a good time

Hanging on the telephone as if it were my friend
Craving some of that sweetness on the other end
I'll lay under the stars tonight
Instead of sleep, pretend
That you are watching the sky too

I've seen the shadows fall
Colors that fade on my wall
Dressed up nowhere to go
It's all in my mind I know

But it's alright now
We're on our way

Lay me down in the moonlight
So close to you
Maybe we're just dreamers
Some dreams come true

Lips move but not a sound
When the words fall to the ground
Eyes watch but seldom see
The possibilities

But it's alright now
We're on our way

Lay me down in the moonlight
So close to you
Maybe we're just dreamers
Some dreams come true

When we're together
There's nothing we can't do
Maybe we're just dreamers
Some dreams come true

Moving in circles that we create
Seeing whatever we choose
Hear only voices that call your name

writer: Vicki Peterson, Vinnie Vincent
Words of comfort and love
Spoken in design
Turn cruel unkind
You have your ready treasures or sin
And it all begins
With an innocent smile

Go on, make a play for her now
While I'm standing here
I bleed so slow
You may never know

Whisper she is safe
That you sympathize
When you know right now you'll be gone
At the kiss of dawn
The darkest lies
Your conscience runs clear

Go on, make a play for her now
While I'm standing here
I bleed so slow
You may never know

And I won't make a sound
Who am I to lay the blame
When it's all a game to you
You and I misfired
Left me cold and tired
Hey love it's alright

Go on, make a play for her now
While I'm standing here
I don't keep score
No not anymore
And I won't make a sound
Hey, who am I to lay the blame

When it's just a game
In the back of your mind
The pattern's starting to unwind
And you know you're alone
Oh, but you smile anyhow
When the moment allows
Make a play for her now

I get so restless here alone
That's why I call you on the phone
I get nervous, over-anxious, lose control
Waiting for you, baby

Lately I dream that I'm in your arms
When you're here I feel I'm safe from harm
I'd do anything that you want, babe
Anything at all
And I'm waiting for you to see
You mean the world to me

Stars and the moon wait for you in my lonely room
The warmth of the sun is in your smile

I get so restless here alone
That's why I call you on the phone
I'd do anything that you want, babe
Anything at all
And I'm waiting for you to see
You mean the world to me

Waiting for you
Waiting

L.A. to Reno
Checking out the scene-o
Feeling so mean-o
Sometimes I wish I could crash and burn

Winding through the hot night
Without my headlights
20/20 hindsight
Sometimes I wish I could crash and burn

Crash and burn
And I never ever felt so lonely
Crash and burn
Can't look them in the eye
Just want to drive and drive and drive

Going nowhere
And I don't care
Can't wait 'til I get there
Sometimes I wish I could crash and burn

Fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety
Gotta be a place where they can't find me
Watching all those bridges burn behind me

And if I can't see
What's passing me
Nothing's gonna touch me and I'll fly
I wish I could crash and burn

On my Philco
I hear an echo
There was a wreck-o yesterday
And by tomorrow
They'll clean the char-o
And wash the tar and trouble away

I wish I would
I wish I could
I wish I would
