(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Rude

Saturday morning jumped out of bed
And put on my best suit
Got in my car and raced like a jet
All the way to you
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand
To ask you a question
'Cause I know that you're an old-fashioned man, yeah

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die
Tough luck, my friend, but the answer is 'No'

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you gotta be so rude?
I'm gonna marry her anyway

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah, no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you gotta be so
Rude

I hate to do this, you leave no choice
Can't live without her
Love me or hate me we will be boys
Standing at that altar
Or we will run away
To another galaxy, you know
You know she's in love with me
She will go anywhere I go

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die
Tough luck, my friend, 'cause the answer's still 'No"

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you gotta be so rude?
I'm gonna marry her anyway

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
No matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you gotta be so
Rude
Rude

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know
You say, I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die
Tough luck, my friend, but 'No' still means 'No'!

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you gotta be so rude?
I'm gonna marry her anyway

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
No matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you gotta be so
Rude
Why you gotta be so
Rude
Why you gotta be so rude?

No Evil

(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)

Woke up in the morning to another perfect stranger
Jumped into the shower to wash off the situation
I can't tell the difference if I'm crying or it's raining
Either way I know that there is something in the change

All I could think of is you in that sundress
And if there's a chance to be with you I promise

That I will speak no evil
And I will see no darkness
And I will only only hear your voice
'Til the demons come in to infect the love
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)
'Til the demons come in to infect the love
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)

Can you take me somewhere where the devil cannot find us?
Rid me of the poison that has only paralyzed us?
I don't wanna waste another moment here without love
And I hope there's still a space in your heart for me

And all I could think of is you in that sundress
And if there's a chance to be with you I promise

That I will speak no evil
And I will see no darkness
And I will only only hear your voice
'Til the demons come in to infect the love
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)
'Til the demons come in to infect the love
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)

And all I could think of is you in that sundress
And if there's a chance to be with you I promise

That I will speak no evil
And I will see no darkness
And I will only only hear your voice
'Til the demons come in to infect the love
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)
'Til the demons come in to infect the love
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)

I'll look good on your sundress, let me be in this ocean
Put on that sundress and lead me in the sun yea [?]

(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)
No evil, whoa
(Speak no, see no, hear no evil)

Let Your Hair Down

There she goes, there she goes, there she goes
There's nothing better than my beautiful woman
Even though, even though, even though
It's not always heaven, we still fly together

To me you are more than just skin and bones
You are elegance and freedom and everything I know
So come on and...

Baby let your hair down
Let me run my fingers through it
We can be ourselves now
Go ahead, be foolish
No one's on the clock now
Lying in this simple moment
You don't gotta worry now
Just let your hair down

Tell me when, tell me when, tell me when
When I can steal a sweet kiss right from you
I'm diving in, I'm diving in, I'm diving in
The water's warm right here

To me you are more than just skin and bones
You are elegance and freedom and everything I know
So come on and...

Baby let your hair down
Let me run my fingers through it
We can be ourselves now
Go ahead, be foolish
No one's on the clock now
Lying in this simple moment
You don't gotta worry now
Just let your hair down
[x2]

You don't gotta worry
Let your hair down
It's only us here, only us here, only us here
It's only us here, only us here, only us here
It's only us here, only us here, it's only us here

Stupid Me

Oh oh oh, oh oh, oh oh...

Stupid me, I don't know how to slow down
Felt your touch and now I want it all now
Waiting by the phone begging for a call now
Centuries go by, and still there's no sound

Why do you play with my heart, why do do do you?
When you know that I see right through through through you?

But if you don't love me the way I love you
And if you don't want me the way I want you
And if you don't need me the way I need you
I just got one thing to say to you
Stupid you

Stupid you, you don't know how to act right
Gave you the best sleep you ever had in your life
And all you had to do was kiss me goodnight
I swear to you a man like me you won't find

So why do you play with my heart, why do do do you?
When you know that I see right through through through you?

But if you don't love me the way I love you
And if you don't want me the way I want you
And if you don't need me the way I need you
I just got one thing to say to you
Stupid you

So why do you play with my heart, why do do do you?
When you know that I see right through through through you?

So if you don't love me the way I love you
And if you don't want me the way I want you
Then if you don't need me the way I need you
I just got one thing to say to you
Stupid you, ey
Stupid you, oh oh oh

Stupid me for falling for you
Stupid me for falling for you

No Way No

Hey baby, baby
Your heart's too big to be treated small
So please don't blame me, blame me
For trying to be the one who could have it all
You know that it's stupid, stupid
Telling you it's dark when you see the light
And I know you ain't foolish, foolish
Just give me one chance, I could treat you right
So I said...

Will I ever be too far away when you feel alone? (No way, no)
Will I ever back down my sword to protect our home? (No way, no)
Will I ever spend a day not telling you you're beautiful? (No way, no)
No way, no way, no (No way, no way, no)

My sister, sister
Told me that if love ever hits your eyes
I promise you'll miss her, miss her
The second that she walks right out your sight
So we should just do it (do it, do it)
Cause I don't wanna risk her being right
Let's not be be foolish
Don't you know that family never lies?
I promise that...

Will I ever be too far away when you feel alone? (No way, no)
Will I ever back down my sword to protect our home? (No way, no)
Will I ever spend a day not telling you you're beautiful? (No way, no)
No way, no way, no
No way, no way, no

Hey lady, lady
Life's too short to be waiting long
So let's not waste it, waste it
When we both know you're the one

Will I ever be too far away when you feel alone? (No way, no)
Will I ever back down my sword to protect our home? (No way, no)
Will I ever spend a day not telling you you're beautiful? (No way, no)
No way, no way, no
No way, no way, no...

Paradise

Once upon a time a lonely boy with vision (vision)
Heard about a little mermaid cast away (cast away)
Saw a little bitty fin and started swimming (swimming)
She disappeared with the sunlight once again (once again)

He prayed unto his father
As his lungs filled up with water

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I wanna go)
Can I come play with you under the tide? (I wanna go)
I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I wanna go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I wanna go)

When he woke up on the dry-land he saw visions (visions)
Of the life with the mermaid cast away (what a life, what a life it would be)
Couldn't tell if it was love or just impatience (patience)
Headed back where the black sun hits the waves (hits the waves)

And there she was in color
And with all his strength he called her

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I wanna go)
Can I come play with you under the tide? (I wanna go)
I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I wanna go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise?

Please don't drift away [x6]

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I wanna go)
Can I come play with you under the tide? (I wanna go)
I want to swim inside your ocean eyes (I wanna go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise?

Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I wanna go)
I've got to be with you, I don't know why (I wanna go)
Oh won't you take me to your paradise? (I wanna go)
I've got to be with you, I've got to be with you
(I wanna go, I wanna go)
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise (I wanna go)
Paradise, paradise, paradise...

One Woman One Man

I am a sinner, as cold as the winter
She is the sun, she is the queen of love
I am a burden, always uncertain
She is a raft, only believes in us

And I know that she cries by the red in her eyes
She's been waiting for signs that never come
All she ever really wanted was...

One woman, one man
That's all that she asks
No other demands
One woman, one man, yeah

I am a loser, I only confuse her
She is the sail, no matter where we go
Tradition innovates [?]
The way I live is far too gone
Oh I wish it wasn't so (Lord I wish it wasn't so)

I know that she cries by the red in her eyes
She's been waiting for signs that never come
All she ever really wanted was...

One woman, one man
That's all that she asks
No other demands
One woman, one man, yeah

One woman, one man
That's all that she asks

One woman, one man...

Little Girl Big World

I am a sinner, as cold as the winter

And I know that she cries by the red in her eyes
She's been waiting for signs that never come
All she ever really wanted was...

One woman, one man
That's all that she asks

One woman, one man, yeah

I am a loser, I only confuse her
She is the sail, no matter where we go

Mama Didn't Raise No Fool

Mama says, "Love is once in a lifetime
How you gonna find love at nights for the one time?"
See the thing about me, it's just not the right time
Mama says, "Son, you can't fight the sunshine"

I did not come here tonight
To be struck by your light
But here I stand in your glow
Should I stay? Should I go?

I wanna run, I wanna run from you
But mama didn't raise no fool
Mama didn't raise no fool (no fool)
I wanna run, I wanna run from you
But mama didn't raise no fool
Mama didn't raise no fool (no fool)

Mama says, "Lately I don't recognize you
But if this is who you wanna be you've got the right to"
(You buried your heart so guilt could never find you)
But mama says, "Love will find the boy that I knew"

I did not come here tonight
To be brought back to life
But here I stand in my [?]
Second chance is your name

I wanna run, I wanna run from you
But mama didn't raise no fool
Mama didn't raise no fool (no fool)
I wanna run, I wanna run from you
But mama didn't raise no fool
Mama didn't raise no fool (no fool)

I loved you since I said, "Hello"
I need you much more than I know
I did not come here tonight
To be struck by your light
But here I stand in your glow
Should I stay? Should I go?

I wanna run, I wanna run from you
But mama didn't raise no fool
Mama didn't raise no fool (no fool)
I wanna run, I wanna run from you
But mama didn't raise no fool
Mama didn't raise no fool (no fool)

Mama didn't raise, mama didn't raise, no
Mama didn't raise no fool

How Do You Want To Be Remembered

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When they're standing at your grave?
On your tombstone, what is written?
Think about the steps you take

All my life I've been searching for the answers
How did I lose so much of the things that really matter?
Is there no paradise, cause I feel no joy or laughter
Seems everything I touch only turns into disaster
So I ask myself...

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When your children come to aid
And they need some inspiration?
Think about the steps you take

Do I reach for love only when she says she's leaving?
Do I pray above only when I feel I'm needing?
See I can't sleep at night, when sheep turn into demons
There's no alibi when the jury knows your secret
So I ask myself...

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When your children come to aid
And they need some inspiration?
Think about the steps you take

Cause on the day when you face judgement
You better have your story straight
Were you a good friend and a husband
To the wife that gives you love, love, love
You love, love, love, oh

How do you want to be remembered?
As a sinner or a saint, as a hero or a villain?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered
When they're standing at your grave?
On your tombstone, what is written?
Think about the steps you take

How do you want to be remembered?
How do you want to be remembered?
Think about the steps you take
How do you want to be remembered?
How do you want to be remembered?
