Lyrics

Well, I don’t want to give you some song and dance About how our lives entwine by some grand design But there’s one thing that sure is true I like the things you do I don’t want to take you on some magic carpet ride Where love’s so sweet that it’s incomplete But if you like to sleep out under the stars Pack up and hop in my car Cause this is real life And it’s real love that I’m feeling Or at least it seems that way Why don’t we give it a try, we’re just a little bit shy I’ll meet you half way I’m not Miss America, I don’t have skin as soft as silk I never wore a crown or a fancy evening gown But I can touch you with all of my soul You make me feel whole And this is real life And it’s real love that I’m feeling Or at least it seems that way Why don’t we give it a try, I’m not saying do it or die I’ll meet you half way I’ve had it up to here with infatuation I’ve acted like a fool too many times But you just make sense, you’ve won my confidence And I really think you’re one of a kind You don’t have to charm me, I’ve never felt so inspired I’m truly blessed by your tenderness But you know what matters most in the end Is I can call you my friend Cause this is real life And it’s real love that I’m feeling Or at least it seems that way Why don’t we give it a try, now don’t be shy I’ll meet you half way

Lyrics

Tears would be frozen By that look on your face The life that you’ve chosen You’re a real hard case Well, I don’t believe it It just isn’t true Cause inside those icy eyes Love is on fire Its raging in you Keeping the distance Is the key to your plan Nothing can touch you The invincible man Maybe I’m foolish To say that I care Cause pulling the heartstrings of someone like you Is a risky affair I love you Love has no mercy And we’ve all paid the toll It traps all your senses And captures your soul So what are you proving Choosing not to forgive Why don’t you free all those ghosts from the past And let yourself live I love you

Lyrics

Running to the corner of Fairmount and Wight That driver ain’t waiting for a woman who stayed up too late last night Six thirty in the morning and I’m dangerous Cursing every step I barely make the bus And I nudge my way past the sleepy faces Some lost in thoughts of love or higher places Others dreading the day’s work ahead Dreaming this bus would bring them all to paradise instead Billy’s blowing bubbles in the back with the headphones on He’s smiling and teasing that baby in the pink chiffon Who’s dark-haired mama’s got a leg that doesn’t work too well The war’s behind her but the bus steps give her hell And we roll along past the empty pool halls Haunted alleyways, grafitti on the school walls Street prophet talking to God begins to shout Was last night just a dream, is this what life is all about That driver don’t care what kind of mood I’m in He’s driven all the backroads of love and sin Doesn’t matter what your name is, it’s a dollar to ride That man with the wheel in his hand is just taking it all in stride Nora knows at least a dozen ways to make casserole Ted’s talking turkey bout the politics of rock and roll I don’t mean to be indifferent, but it’s been a bad year It’s not that I’m bored, but I’m pulling that cord Hey driver, I’m out of here And I nudge my way through sweet smells and small talk Counting seconds left, I gotta punch the timeclock That driver looks like he’s smiling inside While I’m fretting and regretting He’s just taking it all in stride
