MKTO Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Thank You

Yo, this one right here is for all the drop-out-of-schoolers.
The future cougars. The Mary Jane abusers.
The ones that chose to be losers, for all the Misfit Kids and total outcasts MKTO.
This one's for you role models.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies.
Thank you for the wars you left us to fight.
Thank you for the world you ruined overnight.
But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Thank you for the world you broke,
Like yolk and it ain't no joke.
So cold and there ain't no coat,
Just me, my friends, my folks
And we gonna do what we like.
So raise that bird up high
And when they ask you why.
Just stand there laugh and smile.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

Na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na
(Thank you)

Thank you for the times you said, "Don't make a sound."
Thanks for the ropes you used to hold us down.
Cause when I break through I'ma use them to reach the clouds.
We ain't comin' down (Come on). We ain't comin' down (Hey).

Look, ma, I finally made it,
This world is too damn jaded.
My life is just like Vegas,
Go big, go home get faded.
Been a prob since '92.
Can't shut me down curfew
And them girls I'll take a few.
Do what I wanna do.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, don't tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

Na na na na (hey)
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na
(Thank you)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
From head to toe from the soul you ripped apart.
I say,
I say, "Thank you."
Yeah, yeah

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don't tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we're breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there's nothing left to lose.

(Thank you)

Na na na na (hey)
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na
(Thank you)

Yo if you don't like what they tell you to do, don't do it.
If you don't want to be who they want you to be, screw it.
It's your world, it's your life and they ruined it.
Role models, tune in, turn up, drop out

Classic

Hey! Where's the drums?

Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

Let's go!

[Tony:]
Ooh girl you're shining
Like a 5th avenue diamond
And they don't make you like they used to
You're never going out of style

Ooh pretty baby
This world might've gone crazy
The way you save me
Who can blame me
When I just wanna make you smile?

[Hook:]
I wanna thrill you like Michael
I wanna kiss you like Prince
Let's get it on like Marvin Gaye
Like Hathaway
Write a song for you like this

[Chorus:]
You're over my head
I'm out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
One of a kind, living in a world gone plastic
Baby you're so classic
Baby you're so classic
Baby you,
Baby you're so classic

Four dozen of roses
Anything for you to notice
All the way to serenade you
Doing it Sinatra style

Ima pick you up in a Cadillac
Like a gentleman bringin' glamour back
Keep it reel to reel in the way I feel
I could walk you down the aisle

[Hook:]
I wanna thrill you like Michael
I wanna kiss you like Prince
Let's get it on like Marvin Gaye
Like Hathaway
Write a song for you like this

[Chorus:]
You're over my head
I'm out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
It's love on rewind,
Everything is so throwback-ish (I kinda like it, like it)
Out of my league
Old school chic
Like a movie star
From the silver screen
You're one of a kind living in a world gone plastic
Baby you're so classic
Baby you're so classic
Baby you're so classic

[Malcolm:]
Baby you're class and baby you're sick
I never met a girl like you ever til we met
A star in the 40s, centrefold in the 50s
Got me tripping out like the sixties
Hippies Queen of the discotheque
A 70s dream and an 80s best
Hepburn, Beyoncé, Marilyn, Massive
Girl you're timeless, just so classic

[Chorus:]
You're over my head I'm out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
It's love on rewind,
Everything is so throwback-ish (I kinda like it, like it)
Out of my league
Old school chic
Like a movie star
From the silver screen
You're one of a kind living in a world gone plastic
Baby you're so classic
Baby you're so classic
Baby you're so classic

God Only Knows

I've always said I could never fall
Because I love them all
My heart don't race when they try to call
Because I love them all

But she got me stuttering
Like w-w-what can I do because I can't control it
She got me hovering
Above the ground and I don't know what to do

God only knows
How much I need you
I could explode
If I can't breathe you
I'm on the ropes
5 4 3 2
Cause you're the one
I guess I'm done
that's how it goes
Where will I be without you yeah?
God only knows

There ain't a crime I wouldn't do for you
Let's make our getaway, mmm
These diamonds shine but not as bright as you
I'd throw them all away

I'm here surrendering
And I give up, throwing up my hands around you
I can't remember when
I felt like the way I fell for you (c'mon)

God only knows
How much I need you
I could explode
If I can't breathe you
I'm on the ropes
5 4 3 2
Cause you're the one
I guess I'm done
that's how it goes
Where will I be without you yeah?
God only knows
God only knows, baby

Yeah yeah yeah
Where will I be without you yeah?
God only knows

when you touch me (damn, girl) with your body
and all that I can think is how to lose our clothes
What's next?
God only knows
God only knows
God only knows

God only knows
How much I need you
I could explode
If I can't breathe you
I'm on the ropes
Like 5 4 3 2
Cause you're the one
I guess I'm done
that's how it goes
Where will I be without you yeah?
God only knows

Yeah God only knows
Where will I be without you yeah?
God only knows

American Dream

(Do something with your life)
Ooh,
(With your life)

We broke down trying to leave town
Flying down the road to change
We were born to run, Cali here we come
Escape from nowhere USA

Say goodbye to white picket fences
Say hello to palm trees and Benzes
They say you gotta fall to have it all

Yeah

We don't want two kids and a wife
I don't want a job I just want a life
Sometimes the underdogs rise
And the mighty fall

This ain't the same summer song that you used to know
'Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago
The world is spinning too fast for you and me
So tell me whatever happened to the American dream

I know a girl I met her last night
She was fresh off the plane
She whispered in my ear,
"Baby, come here. I'll do anything to make a name."

Honey, take my hand follow me 'cause
I don't wanna hurt you but he does
I just wanna give you some real advice

(Listen baby, mmm)

Look, never take candy from a stranger
And keep your eyes open for danger
'Cause this right here is the twisted paradise

This ain't the same summer song that you used to know
'Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago
The world is spinning too fast for you and me
So tell me whatever happened to the American dream

This ain't the same summer song that you used to know
So baby, let's live and die before we're getting old
You know that nothing is the way it used to be
So tell me whatever happened to the American dream

Na na na...

We we were born to run, Cali here we come
Gettin' out of here, baby
Let's get out of here

This ain't the same summer song that you used to know
'Cause Jack left Diane thirty years ago
The world is spinning too fast for you and me
So tell me whatever happened to the American dream

This ain't the same summer song that you used to know
So baby, let's live and die before we're getting old
You know that nothing is the way it used to be
So tell me whatever happened to the American dream

Na na na.

Could Be Me

Never know, never know
Never know, never know
Never know, never know
Never know, never know

Sure he's got the money, but he's rude and he's cold
Rude and he's cold, but she's with him though
She sat up straight and stuning but I'm broke as a bad joke
Broke as a bad joke, which makes me a no go
She's always talking bout
She lookin out for the right guy
But she just can't find
So baby in the mean time
She deal with this
The guy that's rich
But he might make her cry
A fellow like me get no try
And I just don't know why, don't know why

What she doesn't see
Is that I just might be
What she's lookin for
What she's lookin for
If you look in my heart
Girl and I'm on my knees
What you're lookin for
What you're lookin for
Could be me
What you're lookin for
Could be me

Never know, never know
Never know, never know

She could do better but the money is her drug
Money is her drug, she's only tough
Uh girl I may be borrowing people
But I'm wealthy in their love
Wealthy in their love, I got more than enough
But she wants nice cars and fancy things
Even though she may be suffering
And I'm gonna treat her like a queen
But can't afford the crown, though she turn me down
A million dollar home, don't feel the same when you know a low
I really wanna show her so much more than dough
But the girl won't put me on yea

What she doesn't see
Is that I just might be
What she's lookin for
What she's lookin for
If you look in my heart
Girl and I'm on my knees
What you're lookin for
What you're lookin for
Could be me
What you're lookin for
Could be me
What you're lookin for
Could be me

She keeps on searchin for the wrong man
With the iced out Cartier on hand
So mean but he look like Tarzan
Little bitch but he act real hard man
And she don't know
I got a heart made of gold
And the diamonds in my eyes are the size of the globe
Grade A, not a average Joe
But you never know, never know
And when you're finally scared and alone
I could be the one to answer the phone
Boss up like a CEO
On half, MKTO
So baby when you're done lookin for the top
I'mma be everywhere that he's not
I got everything and more than he's got
It could be me, give me a shot

What she doesn't see
Is that I just might be
What she's lookin for
What she's lookin for
If you look in my heart
Girl and I'm on my knees
What you're lookin for
What you're lookin for
Could be me
What you're lookin for
Could be me
What you're lookin for
Could be me

Forever Until Tomorrow

Girl I, I'm gonna love you
Forever and ever and ever
Girl I, I'm gonna hold you
Forever and ever and ever

Until tomorrow baby I got bills to pay
But since you're here today
And take my breath away
Girl I, I'm gonna love you
Forever and ever and ever
Until tomorrow

You keep hanging with my whole crew, swearin that you like me
Sayin that you wanna be the one to wear my Nikes
Comin on strong, yea over the top
I would do anything to get to stop
To the tic toc but I can't knock
How you keep rockin the fingers in my pocket
Crazy how you want it like it never ever more
When all I know is hit it and you hit the door

But maybe, just maybe
I'm tired of tryna fight it
Nobody, nobody
Can tell me that you shouldn't turn me on
When something so right it can't be wrong

Girl I, I'm gonna love you
Forever and ever and ever
Girl I, I'm gonna hold you
Forever and ever and ever

Until tomorrow baby I got bills to pay
But since you're here today
And take my breath away
Girl I, I'm gonna love you
Forever and ever and ever
Until tomorrow

I ain't lookin for a spouse yet, lookin for a house pet
You keep telling me to look in over houses
Baby that ain't a way to turn me on
Quit tryin to make lunch pays but my mom
Hold up with your hold up
Got again in my face, tryna set a wedding ring
Baby you can tell me, give me serious advice
When all I want from you is to get serious tonight

But maybe, just maybe
I'm tired of tryna fight it
Nobody, nobody
Can tell me that you shouldn't turn me on
When something so right it can't be wrong

Girl I, I'm gonna love you
Forever and ever and ever
Girl I, I'm gonna hold you
Forever and ever and ever

Until tomorrow baby I got bills to pay
But since you're here today
And take my breath away
Girl I, I'm gonna love you
Forever and ever and ever
Until tomorrow

1-2, 1-2-3-4

Why not tell you you're the one today?
Who knows what I'm gonna feel tomorrow?
Why not tell you you're the one today?
Who knows what I'm gonna feel tomorrow?

Na na na na na na na na na...
Na na na na na na na na na...

(Yea, I'm gonna love you)
Na na na na na na na na na...
Forever and ever and ever
Forever and ever and ever
Forever and ever and ever
Forever and ever and ever
Until tomorrow

Wasted

Before she even falls asleep, I got one foot out the door, one foot out the door,
I think she said her name but I was wasted, I don't care anymore, one foot out the door.

Night after night, day after day, Jack and coke smokin' on the fire escape,
Is it to soon or is it to late

Am I crazy to think that I could be in love when it all ends up, it all ends up wasted,
I'd give you my heart, but I'd just f*ck it up, we'd end up, we'd end up wasted,
La la la la la la la [x3]

So I numb the pain away, I know I'd leave but not stay,
I wonder if I will ever find someone to fill me up inside, someone to kiss my fears away,
If I believed in god I'd pray, to god I'd pray

Am I crazy to think that I could be in love when it all ends up, it all ends up wasted,
I'd give you my heart, but I'd just f*ck it up, we'd end up, we'd end up wasted,
La la la la la la la [x3]

Night after night, day after day, Jack and coke smokin' on the fire escape,
Is it to soon or is it to late

Am I crazy to think that I could be in love when it all ends up, it all ends up wasted,
I'd give you my heart, but I'd just f*ck it up, we'd end up, we'd end up wasted,
I say we'd end up wasted, ooooh,

La la la la la la la [x3]

We'd end up wasted.

Heartbreak Holiday

Thank God winter's almost done
And I'm just getting sober
And it feels like I'm freezing in the California sun

Christmas almost killed me
New Year's gone, I still bleed
April Fool's I thought you were the one

Now I'm holding on, f*ck dear life
Skating through it on thin ice
And it just sucks how much I'm missing you
Yeaaaaaaa

(Baby I hate) I freaking hate
(Valentines Day) Valentines Day
(I'm feeling this pain) It cuts like a blade when I think about you
(But what can I say?) It's just so late
(We're playing this game) It's all a charade
A heartbreak holiday here without you

Woah oh oh oh~

Oh I've been deleting every trace
Of when we were together
But ever since I kissed you I just can't get out the taste
So I ate your box of chocolates
Cause I knew you didn't want it
The way that I still want you, what a waste

Now I'm holding on, f*ck dear life
Skating through it on thin ice
And it just sucks how much I'm missing you

(Baby I hate) I freaking hate
(Valentines Day) Valentines Day
(I'm feeling this pain) It cuts like a blade when I think about you
(But what can I say?) It's just so late
(We're playing this game) It's all a charade
A heartbreak holiday here without you

Woah oh oh oh~

It's a heartbreak holiday
With you are million miles away (too far)
Another guy, another plane
I'm stuck without you

I'm on a heartbreak holiday, yeah, Hotel California
You in NYC wishin' I was there up on ya
Baby you're so right but you left 'cause I wronged ya
I'm wishing I could change the way I want ya
But you're long gone so...

Woah oh oh oh~

(When I think about you)
(Baby I hate) I freaking hate
(Valentines Day) Valentines Day
(I'm feeling this pain) It cuts like a blade when I think about you
(But what can I say?) It's just so late
(We're playing this game) It's all a charade
(It's all a game) A heartbreak holiday here without you
You know I'm thinking about you
You know I'm thinking about you
You know I'm thinking about you

Woah oh oh oh~

When I'm here without you...

Nowhere

Breakfast in bed, bacon and eggs
Well done, head, well done
She keeps me fed
Breast and some legs
Well done, yea, well done

You go to work every day and I work my X-box
You wear yo high heels, I'm high scoring in my socks
You learn the right time to go buy me a new watch
You never asked for a key
So I never had to change the locks

You know what I like so give me what I want
And girl I'll never go nowhere
Give me love at night, love in the morning
And girl I'll never go nowhere

I know I may be askin for much
But baby I don't really care
I know I may be sound a bit nuts
But girl I wouldn't go nowhere
Nowhere (nowhere)
Nowhere (nowhere)
Nowhere (nowhere)
Girl I'll never go nowhere

Under the sheets, 10000 thread
Go ahead, spending yo bread
You can't be beat
You're such a 10
Bakin brownies naked

You understand that I got other girls to call (you understand)
You never trip because I let you get involved (don't trip girl)
Take that company jet to that company island getaway (get outta here)
Spending company money, drinkin company champagne (spend it all)

You know what I like so give me what I want
And girl I'll never go nowhere
Give me love at night, love in the morning
And girl I'll never go nowhere

I know I may be askin for much
But baby I don't really care
I know I may be sound a bit nuts
But girl I wouldn't go nowhere
Nowhere (nowhere),
Nowhere (nowhere)
Nowhere (nowhere)
Girl I'll never go nowhere

And you know what I want (you know)
You know what I like (what I like)
I will never stray, at the end of the day you gon do me right

Malcolm in the middle I'm yo lay
Throw a party for me every day like soiree
Charging up the cars like a bull say ole

You know what I like so give me what I want
And girl I'll never go nowhere
Give me love at night, love in the morning
And girl I'll never go nowhere

I know I may be askin for much

No More Second Chances

No more second chances, no more plastic lies
No more giving me reasons to make me have to say goodbye

You only live once, no second chances
She says I go from The Hulk to Mr Romantic
They calling me singing
I've been Ghost and I pull up in the Phantom
I'm bout to get the money moving, I can't sit still, I'ma leave you standing

Everything we had is all gone
Not one more chance, I moved on
I'm doing me so you'd do you,
You'd do you

Cause this is my only life
So I've got to let you go
You should've been only mine
So I'm walking out your door

Singing no more second chances
No more plastic lies
No more giving me reasons to make me have to say goodbye

She only want my Ricotta
Ace of spades and vodka
She trying to be my flame like Waka Flocka with the focka
GPS in my phone, the bug in the house like she a stalker
She trying to lock me down with a pie like she's some Betty Crocker

No more games, no old news
Putting new words to an old tune
Just move out the parts where I loved you
I loved you yea

Cause this is my only life
So I've got to let you go
You should've been only mine
So I'm walking out your door

Singing no more second chances
No more plastic lies
No more giving me reasons to make me have to say goodbye

[JESSICA]
Uh, trying to say I'm crazy
But it's you that chased me
Ain't no black and white,
There's crazy different shades of shady
Remember when I caught your friends talking bout me
Texting her at midnight, boy you just a phony
And I looked right past it
Like it was old news
And I told myself
Why should I doubt you?
About to turn the tables on you
I'm bout to turn the tables on you

Singing no more second chances
No more plastic lies
No more giving me reasons to make me have to say goodbye, bye, bye

Please don't go
Is there anything I can say?
No no no no no, baby, please don't go
Yea, I'm begging you, say goodbye
So many years that I tried
But might've changed my mind
No more giving me reasons to make me have to goodbye bye bye

Say goodbye
