I Wanna Go

(Andersen)

I remember everyone
Letting loose, being young and free
While I spent my twenties in darkness
With demons and anxiety
Wonder how it could go so wrong
Was such a smiling boy at three
I guess I got old grandma’s soul
(now) she was tortured just like me

Now I’m so in love with life
Wanna catch every breath I can
So tired of standing still
I’ll be a world wide travelling man
Guess it’s in my genes
Daddy was a restless soul you see
His daddy was just the same
And now the apple fell of the tree

So I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go out there and see
have to know, got to know, I wanna know
Just what is out there for me

Made peace with the blues
I know it won’t go away
Made room in my life for the demons
I know they’re all here to stay
I’ll embrace my bad habits
I can’t quit them anyway
It was close but I never broke
That’s how I know I’m gonna be okay

So I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go out there and see
Have to know, got to know, I wanna know
Just what is out there for me
….

Made peace with the blues
I know it won’t go away
Welcome my demons
You’re all here to stay
I’ll embrace my bad habits
Can’t quit them anyway
Man, it was close but I never broke
That’s how I know I’m gonna be okay

I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go
I wanna go out there and see
Have to know, got to know, I wanna know
Just what is out there for me
….

Between Love and Dawn

(Andersen)

I woke up way too late
Thought that I had it all made
I was cool and you were in love with me
Didn’t have to treat you right
Stayed out late every night
How wrong can one man be

See, Tina was my romance
Always went to watch Tracy dance
Didn’t really give a damn about you
I thought, Hell I’m a man and she don’t mind
How on earth could I be so blind
Selfishness must have spoiled my view

Now I keep knocking on your door
But you’re not there no more
What have I done
I see your face in every crowd
I call your name out loud
But you’re all gone
You just left between love and dawn

I woke up in a strangers bed
All sweaty with an aching head
Too full of myself to feel shame
I know I should have picked up the phone last night
Maybe I could have set things right
Now I only got myself to blame

And I keep knocking on your door
But you’re not there no more
What have I done
I see your face in every crowd
I call your name out loud
But you’re all gone
….

Hey Baby

(Andersen)

Hey baby, let’s do this right
Slow things down and keep it going all night
Hey baby, just follow me
I know what I want and it should be plain to see
Hey baby, let’s move on up
You’re all mine now, and I’m not ready to stop

And everything’s all right
Everything’s all right
Everything’s all right
Everything’s all right

Hey baby, I want you so bad
Swear you’re the finest lover I’ve ever had
Hey baby, let’s give it all we got
Still can’t believe anybody can look this hot
Hey baby, is there something you wanna say
Try to say something cool, but it comes out this way

 Everything’s all right
Everything’s all right
Everything’s all right
Everything’s all right
….

Pretty Boy In The Hood

(Andersen)
(alt. title: ”Run As Fast As You Can”)

Sit down stupid
You’re gonna get hurt
Why don’t you calm down
You’re gonna get hurt
They don’t mean you no good
You’re just a pretty boy in the hood

Easy now fellows
He’s in over his head
You just don’t get it do you
People ’round here end up dead
You thought you knew where you stood
But you’re just a pretty boy in the hood

So run as fast as you can
Run as fast as you can
Run as fast as you can
And don’t come ’round again

You thought you were in now
But you got blood running down your face
Last night’s big spender
Today just a low down disgrace
I guess you misunderstood
’round here you’re just a pretty boy in the hood

Run as fast as you can
Just run as fast as you can
Run as fast as you can
Don’t you ever show your face here again

Run as fast as you can
Run as fast as you can
Run as fast as you can
And don’t come ’round again

You Don't Need Me

(Andersen)

One of these days
I’ll set you free
But I knew this all along
So don’t you worry about me
One of these days
You’re gonna see
Just what I see
You’re out of my league
And I’d rather step back now
Just to see you happy

You don’t need me
You don’t need me anymore
You don’t need me
You really don’t need me anymore

So one of these days
I’ll let you go
I gave you my everything
But you deserve so much more
One of these days
You’re gonna know
What I already know
I reached my potential
But you still got a chance to grow

You don’t need me
You don’t need me anymore
You don’t need me
You really don’t need me anymore

One of these days
I’ll set you free
But I knew this all along
So don’t you worry
Don’t you worry ’bout me

You don’t need me
….

Is It All Gonna Be Ok

(Andersen)

Red lights are flashing
It’s all out of control
Everybody’s swimming
Faster and faster ’round the bowl
While digging for treasures
All we do is dig a deeper hole
Youngsters armed to the teeth
Tell me where is the soul

Another song about peace
From another fool
Some people may say
Maybe they’re right
But what can I tell my son
If he asks me one day

Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok
What’s gonna happen
If man goes on this way

People are starving
While I got everything I need
Is that really fair, people
Or just plain old fashion greed
There’s terror on my TV
Terror right here in my street
I think I’ll go crazy
If I see another child bleed

Another song ’bout peace
From another fool
With nothing say
Maybe they’re right
But what can I tell my son
When he asks me one day

Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok

Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok
Is it all gonna be ok
Time for all
To kneel down and pray

True Lovers

(Andersen)

What would you say
If I ask you to stay in bed all day
How would you feel
About wearing nothing but yourself and high heels

You’re my woman
I’m your man
Let’s make love
Like only true lovers can

Don’t be uptight
If I ask you to cancel your plans tonight
Don’t be upset
When I ask you to shower and keep your hair all wet

You’re my woman
I’m your man
Let’s make love
Like only true lovers can

I love the way you drive me wild
And then they say married life ain’t all that
When I see you around my child
True love beats a one night stand that’s a matter of fact
You work all day and keep our home
How you do it all, I don’t understand
Wonder what I would do on my own
Tonight you’re off duty, your man is gonna take command

So tell me what would you say
If I ask you to stay in bed all day
Just follow my lead
Today is about your every need

You’re my woman
I’m your man
Let’s make love
Like only true lovers can

Still Drinking

(Andersen)

The sun is coming up now
And we’re still drinking
Guess we all showed the club how
We’re still drinking
I went out with the whole band
For some female attention
It all kinda got outta hand
The cops threw us all in detention
And when they took us downtown
We were still drinking

At noon they set us all free
Still drinking
I said ”The next round is on me”
And we’re still drinking
My wife called me on the phone
All worried and tired of waiting
She said ”Honey what’s going on,
Are you ok and what the hell are you thinking”?
I said ”I’m ok but I can’t leave
We’re still drinking”

Play With Me Baby

(Andersen)
(alt. title: The Game)

I’m just so intrigued
To see what you’re all about
Don’t you think I know
You’ve been checkin’ me out
’Bet I can make you scream
I can make you shout
I could have you call my name out loud
Would you be my high school teenage tease
Turn right back around
Make me beg on my knees
Play with me baby
Play that old game with me please

I’ll sit right here
And listen to what you’ve got to say
I’ll even buy your drinks
If you’re into such cliché
Just go on
Be as hard to get as you may
I bet it all pays off at the end of the day
If you like it cold let’s go outside and freeze
If you like it hot give me a hundred degrees
Play with me baby
Play that old game with me please

So if you like it cold let’s go outside and freeze
If you like it hot give me a hundred degrees
Play with me baby
Play that old game with me please
….
