The kind of love You have to give Strong enough To overcome Callin’ me Callin’ me Back home Where I wanna be It’s unavoidable It’s unavoidable Deeper kind of love Is the action right Is the action right We’ll jam it out See what mama say It’s unavoidable It’s unavoidable Deeper kind of love World deals The toughest hand Pushing me down Gonna rise again Rise above Rise above Deeper kind of love It’s only love It’s only love It’s only love It’s only love

All Grown Up 04:38
Go ahead and leave Have all the fun in the world for me The strangest of needs Stem from our infancy There’s no reason why, no reason why Just close one eye, one eye Choking on the bit, broken by the load We carry too many things Down other folks’ roads We talk like adults, then move like a child, point out all our faults, hide wounds with a smile There’s no reason why, no reason Just close one eye, one eye Hold on to truth In lieu of your youth Your emotions will lead you the right way to go You just cannot let them get out of control So go ahead and leave Have all the fun in the world for me

The letters in a word are significant Some words have four while others have three Well I should understand how they’re different I was the regional champion of the spelling bee When I spell ‘love’ I never use an ‘O’ Just L-U-V, I never end in an ‘E’ Why in the word would I ever use four Letters when I only ever need three Some people spell ‘love’ with an ‘O’ Well I’m a pretty good speller too I never spell ‘love’ with an ‘O’ (oh no) I spell ‘love’ with ‘U’ L-U-V looks right to me even Even though you won’t find it in the dictionary It’s a very nice thought that ‘U’ would be Inside of a word suggesting intimacy When I spell ‘love’ three letters wide The ‘L’ reminds me of my left arm And ‘V’ is like my arm on the other side When they wrap all around ‘U’ to keep ‘U’ warm Some people spell love with an ‘O’ Well I’m a pretty good speller too I never spell ‘love’ with an ‘O’ (oh no) I spell ‘love’ with ‘U’ I spell ‘love’ with ‘U’

Dumb Down 02:53
(Dumb down) Every month the bills repeat (Dumb down) And the moon get full (Dumb down) If we want to get the ends to meet (Dumb down) We gots to push and pull (Dumb down) I know your time is sacred (Dumb down) You got lots to do (Dumb down) Darlin’ I don’t want to take it (Dumb down) I want to give it to you When the pressure gets high When the pressure gets high (Dumb down) Stop makin’ them complications (Dumb down) Start makin’ that love (Dumb down) Don’t be layin’ down stipulations (Dumb down) Let’s be layin’ down love When the pressure gets high When the pressure gets high Don’t be tellin’ your pretty sister Cause you know that’s wrong But should you tire of my scruffy whiskers She can come along When the pressure gets high When the pressure gets high When the pressure gets high When the pressure gets high (Dumb down)

This is the best night I ever had I’m sure we’re a perfect match You love physics as much as me What a fantastic catch You picked a perfect restaurant Your profile said you would There’s nothin’ more that I could want So far so good I can’t wait to get your clothes off And see you in the nude I can’t wait to get your clothes off You got me in the mood Oh, honey, now, I’ve been fantasizing all night long And I can’t stand any more I can’t wait to get your clothes off On my living room floor (uh oh!) I loved your profile page so much I memorized every line An aeronautic engineer Who loves good food and wine Top of your class at MIT Your email ends dot gov You trained a world class Frisbee dog Baby, I’m in love I can’t wait to get your clothes off And see you in the nude I can’t wait to get your clothes off You got me in the mood (oh, yeah) You know I’ve been fantasizing all night long And I can’t stand any more I can’t wait to get your clothes off On my living room floor (like this!) Oh, I’ve been fantasizing all night long And I can’t stand any more I can’t wait to get your clothes off On my living room floor No, I can’t wait to get your clothes off On my living room floor Tell you what I’m gonna take your clothes off I can’t wait any more

All this gasoline pumps my heart Burnin’ that book is a hell of a start Out on that bayou your love will drown Callin’ on your kin that spell is a spark Cryin’ my love and I’m all bled out Don’t drink the blood that’s down in the river The devil’s throwin’ dirt in my eyes…I’m a sinner Holy rollin’ love, is it enough A slave man’s wage can’t buy you dinner Don’t drink the blood that’s down in the river The devil’s throwin’ dirt in my eyes…I’m a sinner Kiss you on the forehead, dip you in the red All my love layin’ on the riverbed Down on Congo Square there’s (blood in the stone) That’s a man’s story that (needs to be told) His love went upstream, went down in the water Finally in the afterlife they get to be lovers Don’t drink the blood that’s down in the river The devil’s throwin’ dirt in my eyes…I’m a sinner Kiss you on the forehead, dip you in the red All my love layin’ on the riverbed
7.
Have mercy on my soul Don’t make me beg for more I’m more thirsty now than I’ve ever been before Oh my good Lord Sweat drips down my face Have I fallen so far from grace Have you forgotten that I built the fuckin’ place That shelters you Only love you got Is your love for control I said there’s got to be more But who am I trying to fool I ain’t got any I ain’t got any I ain’t got any More love for you All these childhood dreams What I thought love would be Seems you proved to me That they were never true Only love you got Is your love for control I said there’s got to be more But who am I trying to fool I ain’t got any I ain’t got any I ain’t got any More love I ain’t got any I ain’t got any I ain’t got any More love for you Oh you’ll no longer reign over me I see the dawn approachin’ Baby, you’re not there When the sun comes up I’ll be miles away I’ll be miles away from you When the sun comes up I’ll be miles away I’ll be miles away from you When the sun comes up I’ll be miles away I’ll be miles away from you When the sun comes up I’ll be miles away I’ll be miles away from you

Where Are We 02:22
I like the way this feels, I like it crazy like that A certain sense of appeal, there ain’t no turnin’ back I hope you like this spell because you’re under it We seem to do so well, but I’m just wonderin’ Where are we Where are we Where are we Where, where Welcome to my world, you are … around … sensitive girl, sometimes I break down People have ideas of how it has to be Because the way it appeals, they keep on asking me Where are we Where are we Where are we Where, where We’re in love If I’m a bad idea, you know I make it good I’m certain baby we’re gonna do it like we should If you were playin’ true lies gonna be found out by my booboo What it’s all about Where are we Where are we Where are we Where, where We’re in love Where are we Where, where We’re in love

One night in old New Orleans Down on Bourbon Street I went to a fortune teller Here’s what she told me She said, “Your love is out there, Seek and you will find.” So I went searching For what is surely mine Tallahassee, Chattanooga I’ve searched the whole world through Kansas City, Kalamazoo Darling where are you? New Year’s Eve in Paris Was sure I’d find you there From the top of the Eiffel Tower I couldn’t see you anywhere I combed the city Guess that you had gone Knew that you were waiting So I carried on Casablanca, Barcelona I’ve searched the whole world through Copenhagen, Budapest Darling where are you? One hot night in Cairo Touring Pharaoh’s tomb I got so excited Knew I’d see you soon I walked the desert I waited up ‘til dawn Still I could not find you So I carried on Santiago, Buenos Aires I’ve searched the whole world through Caledonia, Katmandu Darling where are you? Oh fortune teller Did you lie to me? I’ve been the whole world over Where could he be?
10.
I can’t seem to do a damn thing right, as you point out every day I try and try to treat you right, but you got nothin’ good to say I come home with my little paycheck, find my stuff out on the lawn You’re gonna like me a whole lot better when I’m gone You don’t like the clothes I wear, you don’t like the way I do my hair Somehow everything I do is wrong Well, baby, I got things to do, I can’t sit around and wait for you You’re gonna like me a whole lot better when I’m gone (Look out now!) I miss the way you used to hold me Oh, that flirting used to just drive me wild The dreams we shared completely sold me We both found our inner child Now we’re just a ship that’s sinking, neither knows what the other’s thinking Now we’ve even lost our favorite song We don’t dance, we don’t go out, all we do is scream and shout We’ll like us a whole lot better when we’re gone We’ll like us a whole lot better when we’re gone So long
11.
I’ve got one foot out the door I have no time I don’t want you anymore I’ll leave at the drop of a dime You’re only foolin’ around You ain’t good for my health You’re not foolin’ this town You’re only foolin’, foolin’ yourself I’ve got anchors on my shoulders I have no empathy I don’t want this weight to make me colder I thought you knew this was me You’re only foolin’ around You ain’t good for my health You’re not foolin’ this town You’re only foolin’ We can shoot this down, it ain’t set in stone When we come back around there was nobody home This is the fuel to the fool you thought I was I’m leaving you, I’m leaving you because You’re only foolin’ around You ain’t good for my health You’re not foolin’ this town You ain’t even foolin’ yourself!
12.
You know the first time I saw you I fell in love with you I know you don’t believe me honey, but I swear it’s true Well, you just took my breath away I stopped right where I stood That picture’s etched in my mind, and it’s there for good You always say maybe, you never say yes But then you never say no You want me to keep coming back here I guess And you know I can’t let go Here everybody calls you Kitten But that’s just part of the game Well you’re an Iowa sweetheart, and Cora is your name Your job is making a fantasy And I love it so much My job is sitting here watching, and trying never to touch I’ll call you Kitten out in the room I’ll call you Cora when we’re alone Well all I can do is rent you, honey, and I can’t never own There ain’t no one else like you, they can’t come close When you work that big brass pole Well then you took me in back, and danced on my lap And you captured my soul I’ll always remember to tip you And call you by your stage name But that don’t mean I don’t love you, honey But that don’t mean I don’t love you But that don’t mean I don’t love you, honey, and Cora my heart’s aflame
13.
Dissolve 04:23
I wore out the sweater that you gave me the winter after you left. I worked in it, I slept in it, I walked in it. Until it dissolved into tattering thread. I guess I never got over the way I felt with it on. I could feel your arms on me, wrapped around the wool, pressing against my skin. (Goodbye, lovely one, maybe one day we will fly away. Goodbye, lovely one, maybe one day we will fly away, away, away.) Some nights I’d wake up in the dark and smell you in the colors and in the center of it, holding me like you did in December before you left. And I’d wait in the darkness, holding my breath, hoping you’d appear. A hovering apparition, a tortured vision of the love I’d lost. (Goodbye, lovely one, maybe one day we will fly away. Goodbye, lovely one, maybe one day we will fly away, away, away.) How many nights did I sit and watch the ice melt in my glass, slowly disappearing and dissolving until I drank it down. Absorbing the alcohol into my skin, wondering where you were and what you were doing.
14.
First Time 04:17
I was out on a holiday It was an ordinary night Your gaze met mine And it changed our lives First time I saw you I could tell You were somebody I wanted to know Something about you, well it worked just right I said I wanna spend forever with you, every night The first time I saw you, honey, I told you so Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last Don’t be shy babe, just give it a chance Step into the future, forget the past Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last I had no idea We were just coasting along Suddenly sidelined we began to fall Now I have to catch my breath when you walk through the door Every single day I keep a-lovin’ you more We’ve got forever, let’s go and have us a ball Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last Don’t be shy babe, just give it a chance Step into the future, forget the past Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last Once we counted pennies, hoping for a dollar bill These days we make something out of nothing And babe I’ve got a feeling that we always will Yeah I am such a sucker for the way you smile Come sit down beside me and stay for a while I’ve got that first time feeling and I hope it never goes away Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last Don’t be shy babe, just give it a chance, give it a chance Step into the future, forget the past Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last Might be the first time, might be the first time Might be the first time, but it won’t be the last

Funk-a-Billy 04:02

16.
I’m so lost I don’t know where to go Stuck in a rut I’m so emotional Since you left me been so all alone All night long just sitting by the phone, by the phone Why did you go and leave me And treat me so unkind Why couldn’t you believe me About to lose my mind Now I wander lonely through this town Wind so cold the leaves are turning brown Since you put my love up on the shelf I just sit here singing to myself, to myself, to myself I should have seen this coming I do this every time Why couldn’t I be stronger Now that you’re not mine Since you left me I’ve lost all my faith I’ve turned into one hopeless case Friends try to help, I push them all away Maybe I just need a holiday, holiday, holiday Maybe I’ll pack my suitcase And jump aboard that train No matter where it ends up I’ll still be calling your name Maybe you will come back to me If you do I’ll make you so happy There’s no need for you to be alone I’ll still be here waiting by the phone, by the phone, by the phone, by the phone, by the phone
17.
Your love is driving me crazy Your love is causing me to lose my mind I’m not the person I used to be Since you pushed me to insanity I left lucidity behind I went to take a shower And I left on all my clothes Tried to comb my hair Hit my head and broke my nose Went out for a walk And wound up breaking all my toes I wish that you could really see How insane you’re making me Well, your love is driving me crazy Your love is causing me to lose my mind I’m not the person I used to be Since you pushed me to insanity I left lucidity behind Was driving in my car On the wrong side of the road Was sleeping in the bedroom But it wasn’t my abode Tried singing you a love song But sounded like a toad Like a werewolf at full moon You’re making me acting like a loon Your love is driving me crazy Your love is causing me to lose my mind I’m not the person I used to be Since you pushed me to insanity I left lucidity behind I called you on the telephone But dialed my mom instead Was writing with a pencil That didn’t have any lead I made myself a sandwich But forgot to add the bread You’re making me look like a klutz The doctor said I’m clinically nuts Well, your love is driving me crazy Your love is causing me to lose my mind I’m not the person I used to be Since you pushed me to insanity I left lucidity behind I left lucidity behind I left lucidity behind

Arcana 04:39
Do you mind your lover Talking in her sleep Revealing all the secrets That the darkness tries to keep What if I would dare you And save you from yourself Or maybe you would care to Be safe with someone else As below above This dream has been decrypted Let’s take the veil of love And lift it Walking into history Talking in our sleep How beautiful this mystery And the faith you had to leap Showing you the answers In the patterns and the clues Floating through Arcana Shattering the truth As below above This dream has been decrypted Let’s take the veil of love And lift it Breaking into morning The early rays of dawn Waking from Arcana This dream will linger on As below above This dream has been decrypted Let’s take the veil of love And lift it As below above This dream has been decrypted Let’s take the veil of love And lift it
