So no one will openly admit to liking “Don’t Worry, Be Happy?” (Don’t worry Camera Obscura, your secret is safe with me :) )
Ah, and the last title was from the opening line of the Dao De Jing - 'The Way that can be spoken is not the eternal Way.' Quizzical philosophy for the day.
This is a town where everyone is reachin' for the top
This is a place where second best will never do
It's ok to want to shine
But once you step across that line
No matter where you hide I'm comin' after you
Should've known better than to cheat a friend,
and waste the chance that I've been given.
Well you can take it as a warning
Or take it anyway you like
It's the lightning, not the thunder
You never know where it's gonna strike
People call me on the phone, I'm trying to avoid.
Well, can the people on TV see me or am I just paranoid?
If I ever catch up with you
I’m gonna love you for the rest of your life
But it's gonna take money
A whole lotta spending money
It's gonna take plenty of money
To do it right child
My lips are moving and the sound's coming out
The words are audible but I have my doubts
That you realize what has been said
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me
When I call love
Give love some soul
If I may be quite so bold
Where does it go from here?
Is it down to the lake I fear?
So we journeyed to her house one thing led to another
I keyed the door we cold hit the floor looked up and it was her mother
