Lyrics

Running in the Rays of the Sun
_______________________________

Breaking up is hard to do
Especially for me and you
We have a history that stretches till the end of time
But ever since we've been apart
My heart has stopped and forgot to start
I don't know the reason and I don't know why

'Cause I told myself that I could take the pain
But lately I'm drowning in the rain
Praying for the day to come
I told myself that I could take the pain
But lately I'm drowning in the rain
Praying for the day to come
When I'll be running in the rays of the sun

I ve been trying to bide my time
With other girls to change my mind
but things did not turn out as I had planned
They are looking for love
My love is not around
I'm always building a bridge
And then tearing it down
I guess my love is still just stuck on you

Do you remember how it used to be
Always you, always me
I know now that the good out weighs the bad
But we let it all slip in the end
We can't deny it and we can't pretend
And I'm so sad, I haven't seen the sun since then

You needed me but I wasn't there
But now it's me who's in despair
Every thing is easier said than done

Are you still looking for love
My love is still stuck on you
And there is anything I'm prepared to do

'Cause I told myself that I could take the pain
But lately I'm drowning in the rain
Praying for the day to come
I told myself that I could take the pain
But lately I'm drowning in the rain
Praying for the day to come
When I'll be running in the rays of the sun


Valerie
_____________

It's not a mystery and it's really plain to see
Girl can't you tell that I'm in love with you
But I'm hanging on a thin line and I think I'm losing my mind
And I'm all out of quarters on this lonely pay phone

But I'll climb any mountain and swim any sea
As long as you promise to come back to me
And I'll be anything you want me to be Valerie

And I'm off the coast of somewhere
Sending out an S.O.S.
But there's no reply no answer
Is there anybody there for me ... Valerie

"Cause I'll climb any mountain and swim any sea
As long as you promise to come back to me
And I'll be anything you want me to be Valerie

You can call it insecurity but baby something's taken over me

So I guess there's nothing left here to say
I've been talking to much here anyway
But before you decide to let me go
Let me tell you once more before you hang up the phone

I'll climb any mountain and swim any sea
As long as you promise to come back to me
And I'll be anything you want me to be Valerie


Bearded Wonder from Down Under
__________________________________

Down in some banana republic, lives a man who rules as king
His mother English, father Aborigine,
He's an Australian viking

He's as big as an ox, as strong as a tank,
And crazy about his rice and beans
Made by his wife the lovely Lolita
Born in Havana, raised in Beijing

He's the Bearded Wonder from down under
Heading up the coast to buy a golden ring
He left the band Lolita gave him, he can't come home without his ring

Oh oh whoah oh oh whaoah

Now he's not afraid of any man, he runs his country like a king
But, it's a different story at home with his crazy Cuban Queen

He's the Bearded Wonder from down under
Heading up the coast to buy a golden ring
He left the band Lolita gave him, he can't come home without his ring

Oh oh whoah oh oh whaoah

Now he's been known to take it off but he,
Never gives a good reason
He once came home without his ring,
The country almost lost its king

He's the Bearded Wonder from down under
Heading up the coast to buy a golden ring
He left the band Lolita gave him, he can't come home without his ring

Oh oh whoah oh oh whaoah

And there's a picture of Fidel right on the wall and
Another of the Che' right down the hall
Living with Lolita was the best solution
So you can follow your dream and f*ck the revolution

He's the Bearded Wonder from down under
Heading up the coast to buy a golden ring
He left the band Lolita gave him, he can't come home without his ring

Oh oh whoah oh oh whaoah


Instant Misery
_________________

Last time that I saw her was south of Tampa Bay
I turned around, she jumped the gun, I guess she ran away
I searched up in Alaska and down in New Orleans
But all I found was what she left me with... Instant Misery

Well, I went up to New York City just to get back in the craze
Low and behold I saw her hand in hand with Mr. USA
Well I followed them to a party they were holding at Elaine's
But when I tried to take her aside I found Instant Misery
Whoah, oh, lately I've been down
Whoah, oh, is there no hope to be found

Well I went to Atlantic City just to back in the haze
That's when I met another beautiful girl
I thought would put my mind at ease
But then I saw her kissing another girl in tight blue jeans
And though my mind went wild I fell out of the clouds back into
Instant Misery
Whoah, oh, lately I've been down
Whoah, oh, is there no hope to be found

Well I came back to Miami just to get back in the breeze
And do a little thinking underneath the cool palm trees
But the harder that I think about this sudden mystery
The more I'm sure there isn't a cure for Instant Misery
Oh the harder that I think about this sudden mystery
The more I'm sure there isn't a cure for Instant Misery
The more I'm sure there isn't a cure for Instant Misery

Whoah, oh, lately I've been down
Whoah, oh, is there no hope to be found
Whoah, oh, lately I've been down
Whoah, oh, is there no hope to be found


Waiting for the Bus
_______________________

Standing in the cold rain, waiting for the sun
Stranger days are coming, I guess that's why I'm on the run
I saw you at the coat check, it's the last I saw of us
Now you're somewhere up in New York
I'm down here waiting for the bus
Waiting for the bus

I guess I'm too old fashioned baby for the both of us
You're just like a dream girl and I am just in love...

The letter that you wrote me put my mind on track
I guess it was the last straw to brake the camels back
I've been in and out of darkness ever since you've been away
And now you are somewhere up in New York
And I think I'm on my way
I am on my way

I can't live with out you baby and I don't want to try
I'm so lost without you honey, it doesn't matter why...

I finally got to New York, working on romance
How was I to find you and propose a second chance
But then I saw a rainbow rising from the city dust
And like a sign above from Heaven I saw you waiting for the bus


Prisoner of Love
__________________

Everyday that passes by, I pray the Lord to be my guide
And take me from this horrid place and shoot me out to outer space
Oh why....
Can you mend this bleeding heart because it's falling all apart
Ever since you've gone away, my heart is such a lonely place
And I don't dream anymore
What could I be dreaming for
No, I don't dream anymore
What could I be dreaming for...

It used to be you and me as far as anyone could see
But I wanted freedom now I'm paying the price to be free
And I'm a prisoner of your love
It's you that I've been thinking of
I'm out of bondage but my heart still isn't free

Time goes by oh day by day and your memory doesn't fade away
Your name is running through my blood
Why am I so still in love
Oh why....
Can you save this breaking heart because it's falling all apart
And ever since you've gone away my heart is such a lonely place

And I don't dream anymore
What could I be dreaming for
No, I don't dream anymore
What could I be dreaming for...

It used to be you and me as far as anyone could see
But I wanted freedom now I'm paying the price to be free
And I'm a prisoner of your love
It's you that I've been thinking of
I'm out of bondage but my heart still isn't free
I'm a prisoner of your love
It's you that I've been thinking of
I'm out of bondage but my heart still isn't free


Patricia Street
_______________

Trisha, I am rolling
Here I go, down on the waterline and here I go baby down in time
I remember all of the stories and I remember you're still mine
I don't know but I've been told that city life can soon grow old
History has taught me something but what is though I don't know
"Cause I seem to keep making the same mistakes and
I seem to keep wasting my time
But I remember down on Patricia's Street
I was yours and I was fine
Some may say that things will change
Nothing ever stays the same
But I don't think that they can tag this philosophy on me
"Cause every time I see the ocean and every time you look at me
I think about how much I love you and how much that you love me
And I don't know about the guy that's playing
I don't think he'll get a record deal
Music today is not the same but that won't change the way he feels
Oh Oh whoah Oh whoah whoah
Oh Oh whoah Oh whoah whoah
Here I go, down on the waterline and here I go baby down in time
I remember all of the stories, hey I remember you're still mine
Here I go, down on the waterline and here I go baby down in time
History will soon absolve me but first I'll have a glass of wine and
I guess I'll think about the days are heart were young and beating free
Oh I guess I'll think about the the way
I fell in love on Patricia's Street
Oh Oh whoah Oh whoah whoah
Oh Oh whoah Oh whoah whoah
Alright!


The East Drive Serenade
________________________

Sitting on my roof tonight, I light another "j"
The herb is good and the aroma sweet and hell, I feel okay
The dinosaurs, they walked this land but now, have gone extinct
Sometimes I feel a lot like them, I don't know anyone like me

Whoa oh, oh oh oh

I've read Marx' book of madness and I know what he means
But, I won't trade my sadness or opportunity
It's not a perfect world that we're living in
But, Miami has its good points and you are one of them

And I don't claim to be the one to save you from this place
But, if you come with me tonight, I'll surely find a way

You may not like the things I do, I'll probably never change
But, you know I'm in love with you and you keep playing the game
I may not know a lot, about the world around
But, I know the Browns belong in Cleveland and this is Shula's town

And I don't claim to be the one to save you from this place
But, if you come with me tonight, I'll surely find a way

And I don't claim to be the one to save you from this place
But, if you come with me tonight, I'll surely find a way

Sitting in Haulover Park with not that much to say
I gave to you a diamond ring that you put on right away
So I'm sitting on our roof tonight smoking another "j"
My life has turned out quite alright and thats the East Drive Serenade

Sitting on our roof tonight, hey, light me another "j"
My life has turned out quite alright and thats the East Drive Serenade

My life has turned out quite alright and thats the East Drive Serenade
