You hunting like a tigress Cloaked by green from the blizzard cold You wearing that red dress Dive bar lights shine blue and gold You throwing out glances Heels down south and a mind in space You making advances Labyrinth heart with a pretty face Never dream of keeping you Tell you what I'm gonna do Yeah yeah yeah forget you now baby No regretting you just forgetting you Yeah yeah yeah forget you now baby No regretting you just forgetting you Hey hey just for one night I don't need a line to remember to Hey hey hold you so tight I won't have to lie and remember you You starring in your own show Hitting those marks and turning heads You acting like you don't know Watch men rush to prepare their beds You dancing on by them Plastic heroes in a game you play You loving like an island Beautiful, close yet far away Never dream of keeping you Tell you what I'm gonna do Yeah yeah yeah forget you now baby No regretting you just forgetting you Yeah yeah yeah forget you now baby No regretting you just forgetting you Hey hey just for one night I don't need a line to remember to Hey hey hold you so tight I won't have to lie and remember you

Idleness is fine for a while But I find my mind is too wired Can't keep still I’ve got a will to move And I feel it every time A dogged pull A feeling less than full I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me I think of all the things I cannot be I can’t be satisfied I hit a rut and I’m antagonized I live a dream but I fantasize I can’t be satisfied People say we got everything We live a life of warm luxury But lurking under All we plunder there’s An itch that can never be found Feeds our doubt And sends us out at night I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me I think of all the things I cannot be I can’t be satisfied I hit a rut and I’m antagonized I live a dream but I fantasize I can’t be satisfied

When we were together I felt wild and alive We held captive every eye Rambling down the high street Feeling fine in the sun Never time for cloudy skies When we found the moment Nothing dampened our hopes Not a chance to second guess But when we found some time to kill And we lacked lust or thrills That when things start to die When we fell together We went all the way down Nothing slowed us but the ground Now we’re not together And I’m lost in a haze Waste my precious time away

Downstairs at 6:05 Put my head up, feel alive Can’t shake the feeling though that something’s not right A quiet slink away A good morning to the day Wearing the clothing that I had on last night A cocktail we enjoyed Intemperance we employed A naïve notion that we had it laid bare A dim-lit mystery Not to be left unseen Though through a haze when we finally got there I know it’s incorrect Indecent, decadent We’re both sinners in this state of affairs You got no history You got no misery You’re a fresh face in this vanity fair And now I’m a mess I need your tenderness But I can’t take all this changing your mind Leave me an alibi Give me a real goodbye I’m an orphan in a world that’s unkind I guess I never had a prayer in this state of affairs You hold my heart but you don’t care And it just isn’t fair I need to rest I need to rest But I can’t get home

Over five years We’ve been down here Things are dying while We’re imbibing Restless feelings Hear you’re leaving As our old crowd Starts to break on down Well we drank all night And left the dawn behind But it’s borrowed time You gotta do what’s right It’s responsible It’s a choice you made So ends our crusade And the plans we laid So it turns to me And the path I’ll take The new life I’ll make The new things I’ll be Now you want to see And you’re asking me What will it be Am I ready to leave? I’ve been tempted By a large spread Gardens so green Living room dreams Change has been stark Down the sidewalk Do you stand tall Or just let it fall? In the world we try so many things in vain I’m full of needs that I can’t explain I wish like you I had it sorted out Could move on now cause I have no doubts So many thoughts that weigh on my mind I can’t give up what I’d leave behind I can’t commit to what I don’t believe If you’re asking me am I ready to leave
