    Driving Me Crazy

    Driving Me Crazy

     

    All of these years it’s been for you

    I’ll never be the same after that day

    Cause what you said to me was the final straw

    That’s broke my back and I ain’t coming around no more

     

    You’re driving… you’re driving me crazy… oh yeah

    You’re driving… you’re driving me insane

     

    Your trying to make up for lost time

    Even though you haven’t got, you haven’t got a dime

    I’ve driven miles away for a fresh start

    So don’t come crying to me saying

    Baby… please oh yeah

    Baby please oh yeah

     

    You’re driving me…you’re driving me crazy

    You’re driving…. You’re driving me insane

    You’re driving me…. You’re driving me crazy

    You’re driving … you’re driving me insane

    Fire

    Fire

    My heart is on fire from the blazing winds

    My heart is struck down form the scars within

    Come down now and tell me how to live

    And hold my head up high above higher ground

     

    Talk to me, tell me your name

    Teach me, teach me to stay

    Tell me, tell me your dreams

    Why can’t I ask just for one more day

     

    Driving through the bloodlines of my mystery

    I’ve lost sight of the way things used to be

    Loose myself now till I can’t speak

    I was never meant for this sacrifice

     

    Talk to me, tell me your name

    Teach me, teach me to stay

    Tell me, tell me your dreams

    Why can’t I ask just for one more day

     

    Come on… come on

     

    My hear is on fire

    Reset Me

    Reset Me

     Give me this day so I can live my life

    The way it’s supposed to be

    I am grateful I’ve found a way

    To reset me…To reset me...To reset me

    Yeah…Yeah…Oh

    (Reset me)

     

    Plugged in a frame of mind

    Your chains rattle against mine

    So attached to a disconnection

    That repeats and repeats just what to believe

    Don’t stand for this, one more day

    Wake up, stand up and break away

    (Take back your life)

     

    Take a leap a leap of faith

    And, and, and, and

    Rearrange your mind

    I said reset me…Oh reset me

    Oh reset me

    (Reset me)

     

    Oh, wait to meet a decision to beat

    Run around and around this maze

    Walk about, talk about, all of our freedom

    Take your place out of that game

    It’s never gonna change

    Until you can see the truth

    It never left you

    Wake up, stand up and break away

    (Take back your life)

     

    Take a leap a leap of faith

    And, and, and, and

    Rearrange your mind

    I said reset me…Oh reset me

    Oh reset me

    (Reset me)

     

    I said reset me

    Reset me

    (Reset me)

    My Own Drum

    My Own Drum

    Maybe you’re not the answer for me

    Well I’m down on my knees

    I’m praying for the release

    From this lost identity

    Maybe it was all a dream

    As I fall apart at the seams

    I took a chance on you

    But it’s now time for me

     

    To be free…Free...Oh I believe in love again

    It’s time for you to set me

    Free…yeah oh yeah

    And I believe in love again

    (Hey Hey)

     

    So many lonely nights

    That’s I spent thinking of you

    There were some good times we had

    But it wasn’t enough to keep me with you

    I know you tried your best

    But time was not on our side

    Well I wish you all the best

    But it’s now time for me

     

    To be free…Free…Oh I believe in love again

    It’s time for you to set me free

    Free…yeah oh yeah

     

    I…I followed the beat of my drum

    And now it’s my time to be the one

    Oh I’ll pull myself up and dust off the pain

    My heart is beating for love again

    Again

    Aquarians

    Aquarians

     

    Faces they take the streets

     A familiar sound to me

    Come on rise up and join me as one

    Feed the narrow minds wisdom that they can’t define

    Children are playing down the street

    Can you see the mothers, they fight for their beliefs

    Gather in a code of arms

    Can you see their future is in your hands

    Your hands, your hands, your hands

     

    A giant has awakened, as souls dance in the night

    We knew it was our turn to stand up for our rights

    The tale was told so long ago, it’s not a twist of fate

    A new day has dawned, what do you have to say?

     

    (We’re not afraid, we’re not afraid, we’re not afraid,

    We’re not afraid, we’re not afraid, we’re not afraid

     We can make differences)

     

    Men have thrown the battle down

    As it, as it, it hits the ground

    Aquarians occupy your mind

    As the powers they inscribe your eyes

    Your children are playing down the street

    Don’t you wanna fight, fight for their beliefs

     

    Ooo oh yeah…

     

    A giant has awakened as souls dance in the night

    We knew it was our turn to stand up for our rights

    The tale was told so long ago, it’s not a twist of fate

    A new day has dawned, what do you have to say

     

    What do you

    what do you

    what do you have to say

    Playful Games

    Playful Games

    It’s come to this today

    Our crops are sick, our home is fading away

    Were told the lies, it’s all good for you

    And if we play the game, we might go away

    The sick get sicker, our minds are filled with haste

    But if we face our ways we might make a change

     

    Twist me, turn me, pull me

    Twist me, turn me, pull me…she says

    Twist me, turn me, pull me

    Inside out

    (Now must be our moment for action)

     

    Playing these playful games (Playing playful games)

     Keeps it all the same

    We’re losing it all today (We’re losing it all today)

    We have to find a way

    Fighting for a change (Let’s fight for a change)

     Turn our future today

    We can’t play these, we can’t play these

    Playful games

     

    (This disaster has grown beyond the choice that the individuals make)

     

    Our mother’s fate is tied at the waist

    But the key has not been thrown away

    Can’t we realize the future that’s in sight

    We have to end our days of our reckless ways

    And stop cutting down the trees

    And evicting our animals please

    Stop drilling down our dignity!

     

    Twist me, turn me, pull me

    Twist me, turn me, pull me…she says

    Twist me, turn me, pull me

    Inside out

     

    Yeah…

     

    Playing these playful games (Playing playful games)

     Keeps it all the same

    We’re losing it all today (We’re losing it all today)

    We have to find a way

    Fighting for a change

     Turn our future today

    We can’t play these, we can’t play these

    Playful games

    Playful games

    Playful games

    Crash Site

    Crash Site

    A memory form the crash site

    The full moon was burning oh so bright

    I never wanted to take that flight

    That sent me into a world of strife

     

    That’s me, I‘ll stand for who I am

    I never broke under their command

    I fought for every breath

    So I could win the battle that saved my life

     

    Lying next to me at the site

    Was a glimpse of my new life

    I’ll fight my way to be free to not be

    The girl who said goodbye to all her dreams

     

    That’s me, I‘ll stand for who I am

    I never broke under their command

    I fought for every breath

    So I could win the battle that saved my life

     

     That’s me, I‘ll stand for who I am

    I never broke under their command

    I fought for every breath

    So I could win the battle

    The battle…hey hey

    The battle…Ohhh

    The battle that saved my life

    Fever

    Fever

     Never know how much I love you

    Never know how much I care

    When you put your arms around me

    I get a fever that’s hard to bear

    You give me fever

     

    When you kiss me

    Fever when you hold me tight

    Fever, in the morning

    Fever all through the night

     

    Sun lights up the day time

    Moon lights up the night

    I light you when you call my name

    You know I’m gonna treat you right

    You give me fever

     

    When you kiss me

    Fever when you hold me tight

    Fever, in the morning

    Fever all through the night

     

    Everybody’s got the fever

    That is something you should know

    Oh oh oh oh

    Fever isn’t such a new thing

    Fever started long ago

     

    Romeo loved Juliet

    Juliet she felt the same

    When he put his arms around her

    He said baby your my flame

    Thou giveth fever

     

    When we kisseth

    Fever with thy flaming youth

    Fever, I’m on fire

    Fever yeah I burn for sooth

     

    Captain Smith and Pocahontas

    Had a very mad affair

    When her daddy tried to kill him

    She said “Daddy now don’t you dare

    He gives me fever”

     

    With his kisses

    Fever when he holds me tight

    Fever, I’m his misses

    Daddy won’t you treat him right

     

    Now you’ve listened to my story

    There’s a point that I have made

    Chicks were born to give you fever

    Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade

    They give you fever

     

    When we kiss them

    Fever if you live and learn

    Fever till you sizzle

    What a lovely way to burn

    I said what a lovely way to burn

    I said what a lovely way to burn

    What a lovely way to burn

    What a lovely way to burn

    Home

    Home

     

    Show me the way to get to you

    I’ll promise to stay if you ask me to

    We’ll drink up the night and play till sunrise

    Now I know it’s you

     

    Cause you are home

    You are home

    You are home

    Your home to me

     

    At first glance, I’d knew I’d take a chance

    To spend my life loving you if you want me to

    I don’t want to know this life

     Without you by my side

    Without you

    Oh without you by my side

     

    Cause you are home

    You are home

    You are home

    Your home to me

     

    There’s no other man

    That can love me like you do

    You’re my partner in crime

    My best friend through the night

    Well there ain’t no turnin back

    Let’s see what we can do

    Let’s see….Let’s see what we can do

     

     

    Cause you are home

    You are home

    You are home

     

    Oh, Ooo, you are home to me

    Yeah yeah, oh

    You are home to me

    Rattle Me

    Rattle Me

     

    You were messin with me

    Hey hey no

    Oh yeah

    (Gonna shake you down)

    (Rattle me up)

     

    Well I woke today to find the tables turned

    Your colors are starting to burn

    (Starting to burn)

    You took the time to figure me out

    And I’m on to you

     

    There’s nothing left on this side of town

    (Side of town)

    For you to rough up and shake down

    You lied to me to see what happens

    You took me for a fool

     

    You, rattled me up

    I said you rattled me up

    You rattled me up

    And I’m gonna shake you down

     

    Cause you walk the streets and make believe

    That everyone wants to see

    (Oh wants to see)

    Your built identity and your words of duplicity

    I see the truth

     

    I’m the last on your train of doubt

    (Train of doubt)

    Cause I ain’t stickin around

    You knew you were messing with me

    Watch out I’m on to you

     

     

    You, rattled me up

    I said you rattled me up

    You rattled me up

    And I’m gonna shake you down

     

    Cause I woke today to find the tables turned

    Your colors are starting to burn

    (Starting to burn)

    You took the time to figure me out

    And I’m on to you

     

    I said you rattled me up

    (Rattled me up)

    I said you rattled me up

    (Rattled me up)

    I said you rattled me up

    And I, and I’ll shake you down

    Bring Peace

    Bring Peace

     

    What will I know

    Another night from now

    Day to day I’ve asked for the power how

    To turn myself around

    And find out where I belong

    Walking down the street here in San Francisco

     

    Bring Peace to me

    Fill my soul with depths of light

    Bring Peace to me oh

    It took a while to find my way home

     

    I’ll figure it out as I walk

    These streets alone

    Time ticks now, which way

    Will I go down

    I’m too tough to show my reality

    I’ll just wipe the truth

    Away from staining my sleeve

     

    Bring Peace to me

    Fill my soul with depths of light

    Bring Peace to me oh

    It took a while to find my way home

     

    Oh yeah oh

    O God how can I see

    With these blind eyes before me, no

    Give me the strength to see myself through

    Another night alone with these thoughts of you

     

    Bring Peace to me, oh

    Fill my soul with depths of light

    Bring Peace to me, oh

    It took a while to find my way home
