From Now On 04:08
Trouble is, I never stood a chance I never stood a chance at all Bubble burst, and now I recognize I missed the writing on the wall How could I know that I was causing so much pain? Easier to run and hide I will try harder from now on From now on, I'll try to be a better man, now From now on, I will try hard to understand From now on, I will not be so damned demanding From now on, now you will find I will try harder from now on This is not a level playing field And this is not a game of ball Let me say now, in my own defense I had my back against the wall How could I know that I was causing so much pain? Motivated by my pride I will try harder from now on From now on, I'll try to be a better man, now From now on, I will try hard to understand From now on, I will not be so damned demanding From now on, now you will find I will try harder from now on And if I get a second chance I'll do my damnedest not to let you down And if perchance I do then maybe me and you can make it work out for a while if we try From now on, I'll try to be a better man, now From now on, I will try hard to understand From now on, I will not be so damned demanding From now on, now you will find...

Without You 03:40
And there were times where I could almost find the words to tell you how I felt And there are days where every moment finds me glad you left me by myself I think that things are gonna be alright with me without you You should have tried me on another day I'm bad, but I don't mind Maybe you thought that I'd come running back afraid to lay the blame Maybe when I was young and foolish I don't want to play your games I feel your blade between my ribs, and now I live without you I've got my pride to tide me over It's too bad, but I'm fine without you I heard you found somebody new to love and murder, over time I don't pretend to care these tragedies are human Toe the line Give me his number he should know he's better off without you I've asked around and we agree that we would have a better time without you

Tonight 03:21
You won't be here tomorrow. I thought I had another day. And I've been waiting so long, the moment slips away. So don't leave today. I want you tonight. Tonight, you're mine. 'Cause all my life, I've had you in my sights, and I've been biding my time. You wouldn't say I'm patient, but I knew you're worth waiting for. And I've been waiting so long. And I can't wait much more. So don't leave today. I want you tonight. Tonight, you're mine. 'Cause all my life, I've had you in my sights, and I've been biding my time. So don't leave 'til tomorrow. Take the morning train. Just don't leave today. I want you tonight. Tonight, you're mine. 'Cause all my life, I've had you in my sights, and I've been biding my time.

Beaten Man 04:06
Try as I might, the feeling never comes to me I don't want a way to show you - I don't want a way to know you I don't care Led to believe that things would turn around again Take me down the road to freedom - take me down below where I can be myself again 'Cause I know Lord knows how I know I'm not a beaten man Well they had told me time and time again how different it would be An opportunity to start again Let's pretend No time for love anymore No room for joy anymore I've got too much on my mind trying to be me And I know Lord knows how I know I'm not a beaten man All of the days far beyond my reclaim testify for my pain Is that the end in sight? Have I arrived? I don't know I've been had so many times, I just don't know No, I don't know I know enough to know how far I have to go And I know Yes, I know

Don't Worry 04:28
Tell me why, every time I go to look you in the eyes I think I may not be good enough for you? Other guys' better jobs and better lives and better looking Is there method to the madness with you? Tell me why, every time I go to sleep at night, you tell me "Don't worry - I love you too" "Otherwise, something's wrong - I'll fall apart" I don't know why I don't think that I'm the right guy for you But when you ask me if I love you, I say I do And I can see the way you smile You know it's true Otherwise, something's wrong I'll fall apart - I don't know why I don't think that I'm the right guy for you Tell me why you would choose a guy like me to fall in love with? Don't worry - I love you too But I don't feel like I'm the right guy for you You know I love you, but I don't think I'm the right guy for you

Nothing here to do No place to go, and no one here worth talking to People are so strange and the things they do will get to you if you let them have their way There's no one here for me to play with today My friends have gone away No place left to go The stores all close the second that the sun goes out of sight Some things never change but the things that do are cutting me adrift alone, afraid There's no one here for me to play with today My friends have gone away There's no one here for me to play with today My life has gone astray There's no one here for me to play with today My friends have gone away There's no one here for me to play with today and I know sometime I gotta get away

So tell your mama that you're not coming home Tell her to back off - tell her leave us alone 'cause we've been talking about it for so many days you think she'd take the hint, and we could be on our way "Where are you going?" she says "Where are you going?" If she don't know where we're going we might have a good time And tell your mama that she cannot come in If she found out, she'd say we're living in sin You fear the high-minded morals she clings to, so dear She'll never know our secrets if we ain't even here "Where are you going?" she says "Where are you going?" If she don't know where we're going we could finally unwind Maybe when we grow up then we can move ourselves out to the country We'll have each other and our lives will be so grand, but when your mama comes we'll have no fun, and... shake it up So tell your mama that you're going away, and tell her you don't know how long you will stay and you can tell her I'll miss her when you say goodbye it comes off like the truth if you don't know it's a lie "Where are you going?" she says "Where are you going?" If she don't know where we're going everything will be fine

Hard 03:00
I could use a little information now and then to keep in touch; to keep me flying 'Cause I find the way you work can get a little out of hand so play it straight; you make it hard You make it hard for me when everything I do is all for you You should provide, in kind, facilitation now and then to keep me afloat; to keep my trying You make it hard for me when everything I do is all for you You make it hard for me with everything you do, but I love you But I like a bit of challenge in my down time, when I can You make me work; you make it hard You make it hard for me when everything I do is all for you You make it hard for me when everything I do is all for you

Well, I was wandering, feeling dead on my feet, sun in my eyes And so I turned on down to Sullivan Street, and much to my surprise... How many times am I gonna find... I found my baby down on Sullivan Street with another guy She was walking down on Sullivan Street on the arm of another guy How many times had she been lying? It happens every time and I just can't shake it Why do I find that every time I go to Sullivan Street I lose another girl?

The Cost 04:44
Unspoken words that could have changed the way that everything has played out A time to act that has since run The things inside not overcome A burning wish, consumed by fire The dying embers - lost desire So goodbye, goodbye You'll never taste what cannot be Goodbye, I cry A million tears - an endless sea Never shared the way I feel Feared rejection walling me in The cost of failure, once so great, now trivial, but it's too late Resign myself; the paths diverge A strangled wish - a drowning urge So goodbye, goodbye You'll never taste what cannot be Goodbye, I cry A million tears - an endless sea And I never know how to feel And I never know what to do
