I
Want you back again
I
Want your love again
I know you find it hard
To reason with me
But this time it’s different
Darling you’ll see
 
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
 
You
Said we’re through
Before
You
Walked out on me
Before
I tried to tell you
But you didn’t want to know
This time you’re different
And determined to go
 
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
 
I
Wait as the days
Go by
I
Long for the nights
To go by
I hear the knock on my door
That never comes
I hear the telephone
That hasn’t rung
 
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me
You gotta
Tell me you’re coming back to me

Lyrics for the Day – Blood and Roses

Love Pat Dinizio and the Smithereens

th.jpg

It was long ago
It seems like yesterday
I saw you standing in the rain
Then I heard you say
I want to love
But it comes out wrong
I want to live
But I don’t belong
I close my eyes and I see
Blood and roses

The flowers in the springtime
October we were wed
In winter time the roses died
Her blood ran cold
And then she said
I want to love
But it comes out wrong
I want to live
But I don’t belong
I close my eyes and I see
Blood and roses

It was long ago
It seems like yesterday
I saw you standing in the rain
Then I heard you say
I need your love
But it comes out wrong
I tried to live
But I don’t belong
I close my eyes and I see
Blood and roses
Blood and roses
Blood and roses
Blood and roses

Lyrics for the Times — Political Science

Somehow Randy Newman seems still relevant for today.

No one likes us
I don’t know why
We may not be perfect
But heaven knows we try
But all around
Even our old friends put us down
Let’s drop the big one
And see what happens
We give them money
But are they grateful
No, they’re spiteful
And they’re hateful
They don’t respect us
So let’s surprise them
We’ll drop the big one
And pulverize them

Asia’s crowded
And Europe’s too old
Africa’s far too hot
And Canada’s too cold
And South America stole our name
Let’s drop the big one
There’ll be no one left to blame us
We’ll save Australia
Don’t want to hurt no kangaroo
We’ll build an all American amusement park there
They’ve got surfing too

Boom goes London
Boom Paree
More room for you and more room for me
And every city
The whole world round
Will just be another American town
Oh how peaceful it will be
We’ll set everybody free
You’ll wear a Japanese kimono
Be Italian shoes for me

They all hate us anyhow
So let’s drop the big one now
Let’s drop the big one now
