Go So Wrong

DOOR SLAM GOTTEN OUT OF HAND SREAMIN', FEELIN' DON'T UNDERSTAND
WE FALL APART WITH BROKEN HEARTS AND IT'S A LITTLE BIT HARDER TO RECOVER EVERY TIME IT STARTS IT'S STARTIN'
WHERE DID WE GO SO WRONG? LET'S MAKE IT RIGHT AGAIN LOVIN' YOU FOR SO LONG DON'T WANNA FIGHT AGAIN
LOUD FIGHTS LONG NIGHTS YOU'RE COLD AS ICE WE BOTH LET GO OF PARADISE
DEEP INSIDE THIS LOST AND FOUND I'M ASKIN' FOR JUST ONE SECOND TO REFLECT AND TURN IT BACK AROUND
WHERE DID WE GO SO WRONG? LET'S MAKE IT RIGHT AGAIN LOVIN' YOU FOR SO LONG DON'T WANNA FIGHT AGAIN
WHERE DID WE GO, GO, GO WHERE DID WE GO SO WRONG? LET'S MAKE IT RIGHT AGAIN LOVIN' YOU FOR SO LONG DON'T WANNA FIGHT AGAIN

TURN IT UP, TURN IT OUT
CAUSE I’M ABOUT TO SHAKE THESE BLUES
DANCE ROCK, NEVER STOP
WHAT THE HELL DO I GOT TO LOSE?

I NEED A VACATION
JUST A LITTLE ESCAPE ALRIGHT
SO DON’T COME KNOCKIN’ ON MY DOOR
CAUSE I AIN’T GON’ BE HOME TONIGHT

I’M MAKIN’ MY WAY INTO YOUR GROOVE
I CAN’T STAY FAITHFUL IN SIGHT OF YOU

THE MUSIC IS MY MISTRESS TONIGHT
THE SOUND IS TAKIN’ OVER
LIVIN’ IN A DARK KIND OF LIGHT
DANCIN’ WITH MY LOVER

FEEL THE HEAT, BREATHE IT DEEP
AIN’T NO TIME TO THINK OF GOIN’ BACK
SO TIGHT, MOOD’S RIGHT
LIGHTS ARE FLASHIN’ AND I FADE TO BLACK

BUT CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?
SOMETHIN’ JUST BETWEEN THE BEAT AND ME
NEVER THOUGHT I’D WANT IT, BUT TONIGHT
YOU GOT ME BEGGIN’ FOR ETERNITY

I’M MAKIN’ MY WAY INTO YOUR GROOVE
THE RHYTHM’S SINFUL, BUT I’VE GOT TO MOVE

THE MUSIC IS MY MISTRESS TONIGHT
THE SOUND IS TAKIN’ OVER
LIVIN’ IN A DARK KIND OF LIGHT
DANCIN’ WITH MY LOVER

DANCIN’ WITH MY LOVER

All Dressed Up

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE GIRL DOWN THE STREET,
THE ONE WITH SUCH LIFE IN HER EYES?
ALWAYS DANCIN’ TO HER OWN CRAZY BEAT
AND EVERY DAY ANOTHER SURPRISE

WELL PEOPLE CHANGE
PEOPLE GROW
PEOPLE BREAK BUT I DON’T KNOW
HOW YOU BECAME THE GIRL I SAW IN THE VIDEO

SO TAKE A SEC
CLOSE YOUR EYES
RECOLLECT AND REALIZE
THAT YOUR REFLECTION’S NOT THE GIRL IN MY MIND

IT’S LIKE YOU’RE ALL DRESSED UP WITH NOWHERE TO GO
YOU BOUGHT THE SHOES AND THE CLOTHES
AND YOU’RE PUTTIN ON A SHOW
HEADS UP, YEAH, DRESS UP IS FINE
BUT BABY, TRUE LOVE IS BLIND
SO DON’T YOU EVER LET IT GO

DON’T YOU EVER LET IT GO

SEE I REMEMBER BACK IN 1994
WE’D HANG FOR NIGHTS AND FOR DAYS
COULDN’T WAIT FOR WHAT THE WORLD HAD IN STORE
JUST LIVIN’ LIFE WITH HEARTS ALL ABLAZE

YEAH THAT WAS THEN, AND THIS IS NOW
BUT ONCE AGAIN, I DON’T KNOW HOW
YOU CAN PRETEND TO BE A WHOLE DIFFERENT PERSON

SO TAKE A BREATH AND TAKE MY HAND
I’VE GOT NO TEST, I’VE GOT NO PLAN
JUST A FEELING WE WERE RIGHT FROM THE START

IT’S LIKE YOU’RE ALL DRESSED UP WITH NOWHERE TO GO
YOU BOUGHT THE SHOES AND THE CLOTHES
AND YOU’RE PUTTIN ON A SHOW
HEADS UP, YEAH, DRESS UP IS FINE
BUT BABY, TRUE LOVE IS BLIND
SO DON’T YOU EVER LET IT GO

DON’T YOU THINK THAT IT’S TIME
TO SOBER UP AND REPRIORITIZE?
TURN YOUR EYES IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
AND LISTEN CLOSELY TO THIS BOY’S CONFESSION
YOU’RE SO MUCH MORE
THAN WHO YOU ARE
YEAH, UNDERNEATH YOU’RE A STAR
YEAH, UNDERNEATH YOU’RE A STAR

IT’S LIKE YOU’RE ALL DRESSED UP WITH NOWHERE TO GO
YOU BOUGHT THE SHOES AND THE CLOTHES
AND YOU’RE PUTTIN ON A SHOW
HEADS UP, YEAH, DRESS UP IS FINE
BUT BABY, TRUE LOVE IS BLIND
SO DON’T YOU EVER LET IT GO

YOU’RE ALL DRESSED UP WITH NOWHERE TO GO

I stare at the clock
I’m stuck at the job
Nothin I can do.

Driftin away
All through the day
Just thinking about me and you.

Don’t get your hopes up
Yeah that’s what they say
Not gonna worry.
Cause it’s meant to be
Yeah you’re meant for me.
Darlin’ let’s make our own escape.

Cause baby oh you
Lift me up
Not gonna give you up
Just wanna live it up
In a higher higher love, higher higher love

Go on and lift me up
Not gonna give you up
Just wanna live it up
In a higher higher love, higher higher love.

So pack up your stuff
Yeah we don’t need luck
I think I know where we’re going now.

Yeah this is the night, everything’s right.

Starin’ at you, am I just a fool,
Cause baby you’re so damn beautiful.
The look in your eyes gets me so alive. Alive.

Let’s fly, let’s fly.

Cause baby oh you lift me up
Not gonna give you up
Just wanna live it up
In a higher higher love, higher higher love

Go on and lift me up
Not gonna give you up
Just wanna live it up
In a higher higher love, higher higher love

You lift me higher love
You give me higher love
We’re living higher love
Higher, Higher

Cause baby oh you lift me up
Not gonna give you up
Just wanna live it up
In a higher higher love, higher higher love

Go on and lift me up
Not gonna give you up
Just wanna live it up
In a higher higher love, higher higher love
