    some songs are not by me such as

    "So I Need You"

    If you could step
    into my head, tell
    Me would you still know me
    If you woke up in my bed,
    Tell me then would you hold me
    Or would you simply let it lie,
    Leaving me to wonder why
    I cant get you out of this head
    I call mine
    And I will say
    Oh no I cant let you go,
    My little girl
    Because youre holding up my world,
    So I need you
    Your imitation of my walk
    And the perfect way you talk
    Its just a couple of the million things
    That I love about you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    And if I jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge,
    Tell me would you still follow me
    And if I made you mad today,
    Tell me would you love me tomorrow?
    Please
    Or would you say that you dont care,
    And then leave me standing here
    Like the fool who is drowning in despair
    And screamin
    Oh no I cant let you go,
    My little girl
    Because youre holding up my world,
    So I need you
    Your imitation of my walk
    And the perfect way you talk
    Its just a couple of the million
    Things that I love about you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    Im on my own
    Im on my own
    Im on my own
    Oh no I cant let you go,
    My little girl
    Because youre holding up my world,
    So I need you
    Your imitation of my walk
    And the perfect way you talk
    Its just a couple of the million things
    That I love about you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you
    So I need you!


    others are by me and have no title, such as;

    {speaks}
    Change this life
    leave it in the dust
    leave it to rust
    get outta here
    with a huge thrust
    I take off blast off
    on my way to Mars

    {sings}
    [chorus]

    WOAH! show me a new
    life the one I can't find
    I think I might be blind
    I'm one of a kind
    different down the mind
    I'mm misaligned
    to this world so unkind

    Woah show me the light
    the sun's so damn bright
    Think I might ignite
    in the dark of this night
    I know what there is
    only in the slight
    feel like I'm in flight
    while you're here by me tonight
    now we, we reunite
    under the purple of the blacklight
    and you, you're the only one in my sight

    WOAH! show me a new
    life the one I can't find
    I think I might be blind
    I'm one of a kind
    different down the mind
    I'mm misaligned
    to this world so unkind

    Show me the way you love
    The chaos we'll fly above
    the limitations we'll be free of
    the insults we'll dispose of
    just don't let me go
    like a star we'll glow
    it is us they're below
    being little we're to outgrow
    without you I'm alone
    without you I sit on no throne
    without you I'd be cold as stone
    All alone
    all alone

    all alone
    all alone

    just don't let me go

    "All The Right Moves"

    All the right friends in all the right places
    So yeah, we're going down
    They've got
    All the right moves and all the right faces
    So yeah, we're going down

    Let's paint the picture of the perfect place
    They've got it better than when anyone's told ya
    They'll be the King of Hearts, and you're the Queen of Spades
    Then we'll fight for you like we were your soldiers

    I know we got it good, but they got it made,
    And their grass is getting greener each day,
    I know things are looking up, but soon they'll take us down,
    Before anybody's knowing our name

    They've got...

    All the right friends in all the right places
    So yeah, we're going down
    They've got
    All the right moves and all the right faces
    So yeah, we're going down

    They say
    Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
    Yeah, we're going down
    They say
    Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
    Yeah, we're going down

    Do you think I'm special? Do you think I'm nice?
    Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
    Between the noise you hear, and the sounds you like
    Are we just sinking in an ocean of faces?

    It can't be possible that rain could fall
    Only when it's over our heads.
    The sun is shining every day, but it's far away.
    Over the world instead.

    They've got, they've got...

    All the right friends in all the right places
    So yeah, we're going down
    They've got
    All the right moves and all the right faces
    So yeah, we're going down

    They say
    Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
    Yeah, we're going down
    They say
    Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
    Yeah, we're going down

    It don't matter what you see
    I know I could never be
    Someone that'll look like you.
    It don't matter what you say
    I know I could never fake
    Someone that could sound like you.

    All the right friends in all the right places
    So yeah, we're going down
    They've got
    All the right moves and all the right faces
    So yeah, we're going down

    All the right friends in all the right places
    So yeah, we're going down
    They've got
    All the right moves and all the right faces
    So yeah, we're going down

    They say
    Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
    Yeah, we're going down
    They say
    Everybody knows, everybody knows where we're going
    Yeah, we're going down

    Yeah, we're going down [2x]

    All the right moves... hey
    Yeah we're going down
    They say
    All the right moves... hey
    Yeah we're going down

    "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams"

    I walk a lonely road
    The only one that I have ever known
    Don't know where it goes
    But it's home to me and I walk alone

    I walk this empty street
    On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    And I'm the only one and I walk alone

    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk a...

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone

    Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah,
    Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

    I'm walking down the line
    That divides me somewhere in my mind
    On the border line
    Of the edge and where I walk alone

    Read between the lines
    What's f---ed up and everything's alright
    Check my vital signs
    To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk alone
    I walk a...

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone

    Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, aaah-ah
    Ah-ah, ah-ah

    I walk alone
    I walk a...

    I walk this empty street
    On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    And I'm the only one and I walk a...

    My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I walk alone...

    "How To Save A Life"

    Step one, you say, "We need to talk."
    He walks, you say, "Sit down. It's just a talk."
    He smiles politely back at you
    You stare politely right on through
    Some sort of window to your right
    As he goes left and you stay right
    Between the lines of fear and blame
    You begin to wonder why you came

    Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life

    Let him know that you know best
    'Cause after all you do know best
    Try to slip past his defence
    Without granting innocence
    Lay down a list of what is wrong
    The things you've told him all along
    Pray to God, he hears you
    And I pray to God, he hears you

    And where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life

    As he begins to raise his voice
    You lower yours and grant him one last choice
    Drive until you lose the road
    Or break with the ones you've followed
    He will do one of two things
    He will admit to everything
    Or he'll say he's just not the same
    And you'll begin to wonder why you came

    Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life

    Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life

    How to save a life

    How to save a life

    Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life

    Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life
    How to save a life

    How to save a life

    "Hey, Soul Sister"

    Heeey heeeey heeeeey

    Your lipstick stains on the front lobe of my left side brains
    I knew I wouldn't forget you
    And so I went and let you blow my mind
    Your sweet moonbeam
    The smell of you in every single dream I dream
    I knew when we collided you're the one I have decided
    Who's one of my kind

    Hey soul sister, ain't that mister mister on the radio, stereo
    The way you move ain't fair you know
    Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight

    Heeey heeeey heeeey

    Just in time, I'm so glad you have a one track mind like me
    You gave my life direction
    A game show love connection, we can't deny I I-I-I-I
    I'm so obsessed
    My heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest
    I believe in you, like a virgin, you're Madonna
    And I'm always gonna wanna blow your mind

    Hey soul sister, ain't that Mister Mister on the radio, stereo
    The way you move ain't fair you know
    Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight

    The way you can't cut a rug
    Watching you's the only drug I need
    So gangster, I'm so thug
    You're the only one I'm dreaming of
    You see I can be myself now finally
    In fact there's nothing I can't be
    I want the world to see you'll be with me

    Hey soul sister, ain't that mister mister on the radio, stereo
    The way you move ain't fair you know
    Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight
    Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight
    Heeey heeeey heeeeey (tonight)

    "She Will Be Loved"

    Beauty queen of only eighteen
    She had some trouble with herself
    He was always there to help her
    She always belonged to someone else

    I drove for miles and miles and wound up at your door
    I've had you so many times but somehow I want more

    I don't mind spending every day
    Out on your corner in the pouring rain
    Look for the girl with the broken smile
    Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved

    Tap on my window, knock on my door
    I want to make you feel beautiful
    I know I tend to get so insecure
    It doesn't matter anymore

    It's not always rainbows and butterflies
    It's compromise that moves us along, yeah
    My heart is full and my door's always open
    You come anytime you want, yeah.

    I don't mind spending every day
    Out on your corner in the pouring rain
    Look for the girl with the broken smile
    Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved

    I know where you hide alone in your car
    Know all of the things that make you who you are
    I know that goodbye means nothing at all
    Comes back and begs me to catch her every time she falls

    Yeah

    Tap on my window knock on my door
    I want to make you feel beautiful

    I don't mind spending every day
    Out on your corner in the pouring rain, oh.
    Look for the girl with the broken smile
    Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved
    And she will be loved

    [in the background:]
    Please don't try so hard to say goodbye
    Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

    Yeah, yeah.

    [softly:]
    I don't mind spending every day
    Out on your corner in the pouring rain

    Please don't try so hard to say goodbye

    "It's Not Over"

    I was blown away.
    What could I say?
    It all seemed to make sense.
    You've taken away everything,
    And I can't deal with that.
    I try to see the good in life,
    But good things in life are hard to find.
    We'll blow it away, blow it away.
    Can we make this something good?
    Well, I'll try to do it right this time around.

    Let's start over.
    I'll try to do it right this time around.
    It's not over.
    'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    Taken all I could take,
    And I cannot wait.
    We're wasting too much time
    Being strong, holding on.
    Can't let it bring us down.
    My life with you means everything,
    So I won't give up that easily.
    I'll blow it away, blow it away.
    Can we make this something good?
    'Cause it's all misunderstood.
    Well, I'll try to do it right this time around.

    Let's start over.
    I'll try to do it right this time around.
    It's not over.
    'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    We can't let this get away.
    Let it out, let it out.
    Don't get caught up in yourself.
    Let it out.

    Let's start over.
    I'll try to do it right this time around.
    It's not over.
    'Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    Let's start over.
    It's not over, yeah...
    This love is killing me,
    But you're the only one.
    It's not over.

    cool, me too!

    how 'bout this one?

    "Viva La Vida"

    I used to rule the world
    Seas would rise when I gave the word
    Now in the morning I sleep alone
    Sweep the streets I used to own

    I used to roll the dice
    Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
    Listen as the crowd would sing,
    "Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

    One minute I held the key
    Next the walls were closed on me
    And I discovered that my castles stand
    Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

    I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
    Be my mirror, my sword and shield
    My missionaries in a foreign field

    For some reason I can't explain
    Once you go there was never
    Never an honest word
    And that was when I ruled the world

    It was the wicked and wild wind
    Blew down the doors to let me in
    Shattered windows and the sound of drums
    People couldn't believe what I'd become

    Revolutionaries wait
    For my head on a silver plate
    Just a puppet on a lonely string
    Oh, who would ever wanna be king?

    I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
    Be my mirror, my sword and shield
    My missionaries in a foreign field

    For some reason I can't explain
    I know Saint Peter won't call my name
    Never an honest word
    But that was when I ruled the world

    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
    Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
    Be my mirror, my sword and shield
    My missionaries in a foreign field

    For some reason I can't explain
    I know Saint Peter won't call my name
    Never an honest word
    But that was when I ruled the world

    cool

    here's another since I'm posting lyrics

    "You Found Me"

    [Verse 1]
    I found God
    On the corner of First and Amistad
    Where the west
    Was all but won
    All alone
    Smoking his last cigarette
    I said, "Where you been?"
    He said, "Ask anything".

    [Verse 2]
    Where were you
    When everything was falling apart?
    All my days
    Were spent by the telephone
    That never rang
    And all I needed was a call
    That never came
    To the corner of First and Amistad

    [Chorus 1]
    Lost and insecure
    You found me, you found me
    Lyin' on the floor
    Surrounded, surrounded
    Why'd you have to wait?
    Where were you? Where were you?
    Just a little late
    You found me, you found me

    [Verse 3]
    In the end
    Everyone ends up alone
    Losing her
    The only one who's ever known
    Who I am
    Who I'm not, who I wanna be
    No way to know
    How long she will be next to me

    [Chorus 2]
    Lost and insecure
    You found me, you found me
    Lyin' on the floor
    Surrounded, surrounded
    Why'd you have to wait?
    Where were you? Where were you?
    Just a little late
    You found me, you found me

    [Bridge]
    Early morning
    The city breaks
    I've been callin'
    For years and years and years and years
    And you never left me no messages
    Ya never send me no letters
    You got some kinda nerve
    Taking all I want

    [Chorus 3 and outro]
    Lost and insecure
    You found me, you found me
    Lyin' on the floor
    Where were you? Where were you?
    Lost and insecure
    You found me, you found me
    Lyin' on the floor
    Surrounded, surrounded
    Why'd you have to wait?
    Where were you? Where were you?
    Just a little late
    You found me, you found me
    Why'd you have to wait?
    To find me, to find me
