Handclap

(Turn it up)

Somebody save your soul cause you've been sinning in this city I know
Too many troubles, all these lovers got you losing control
You're like a drug to me, a luxury, my sugar and gold
I want the good life
Every good night you're a hard one to hold

Cause you don't even know
I can make your hands clap
Said I can make your hands clap

Somebody save your soul cause you've been sinning in this city I know
Too many troubles, all these lovers got you losing control
You're like a drug to me, a luxury, my sugar and gold
I want your sex and your affection when they're holdin' you close

Cause you don't even know
I can make your hands clap
Said I can make your hands clap

Every night when the stars come out
Am I the only living soul around?
Need to believe you could hold me down
Cause I'm in need of somethin' good right now
We could be screamin' till the sun comes out
And when we wake we'd be the only sound
I get on my knees and say a prayer: James Brown

That I can make your hands clap
That I can make your hands clap
(Turn it up)
That I can make your hands clap

My flesh is searchin' for your worst and best, don't ever deny
I'm like a stranger, gimme me danger
All your wrongs and your rights
Secrets on Broadway to the freeway, you're a keeper of crimes
Fear no conviction, grapes of wrath can only sweeten your wine

But you don't even know
I can make your hands clap
Said I can make your hands clap

Every night when the stars come out
Am I the only living soul around?
Need to believe you could hold me down
Cause I'm in need of somethin' good right now
We could be screamin' till the sun comes out
And when we wake we'd be the only sound
I get on my knees and say a prayer: James Brown

That I can make your hands clap
That I can make your hands clap
That I can make your hands clap
That I can make your hands clap
So can I get a handclap?

Complicated

Got me where you want me
Leave me cold and empty
Speeding up my heartbeat
Your lovin' never was free

Yeah, so we did this all before
Up against the bathroom door
Now I wake up on the floor
And the sky is fallin' down
We do this every night
Yeah we f*ck and then we fight

Don't ask me 'bout the things we did
It's complicated
When we get naked
But I can take it
(I love to hate it babe; I can't say no)
It's complicated
When we get naked
But I can take it
(I love to hate it babe; I can't say no)

Glowin' in the blacklight
Spinning out from last night
Burnin' down the road fast
Kissin' like a car crash

Yeah, so we did this all before
Up against the bathroom door
Now I wake up on the floor
And the sky is fallin' down
We do this every night
Yeah we f*ck and then we fight

Don't ask me 'bout the things we did
It's complicated
When we get naked
But I can take it
(I love to hate it babe; I can't say no)
It's complicated
When we get naked
But I can take it
(I love to hate it babe; I can't say no)

Hey you, don't you know
You're a wild animal
Broke my heart in two
Every time you gotta go
Hey you, don't you know
You're a wild animal
If you don't know why, then now you know

It's complicated
When we get naked
But I can take it
(I love to hate it babe; I can't say no)
It's complicated
When we get naked
But I can take it
(I love to hate it babe; I can't say no)
It's complicated

Burn It Down

I can see you staring at the windows at night
But don't you fret my dear
I know just where I've been hiding out

Let's sit behind this fortress
I built it just to keep the whole world out
It wasn't made for you
Looks who's left a prisoner (prisoner, prisoner, prisoner)

I know what you do when our love is on fire
I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

I know what you do when our love is on fire
I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

I can see you
Battling your demons at night
You're so restless
Wish I was a reader of mind

Let's sit behind this fortress
I built it just to keep the whole world out
It wasn't made for you
Looks who's left a prisoner (prisoner, prisoner, prisoner)

I know what you do when our love is on fire
I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

I know what you do

Take my heart away
Left me hollow
Can we say goodbye for tomorrow?
Took my heart away
Left me sorrow
Can we say goodbye for tomorrow?

I know what you do when our love is on fire
I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

I know what you do
B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

Roll Up

Can I get a witness in the darkness?
Cause there ain't no love at all to be found
Feeling like a freight train, trying to break chains
Everybody needs somebody, no doubt

Sugar just step into your sneakers
And step behind the speakers
Your heart will keep me beating
And make me a believer
Don't you want me?
Don't you want me?
I need some mercy in my soul right now
Give me what you got, oh oh oh
Give me what you got, oh oh oh

(1, 2, 3, 4)
I said, roll up, roll up, roll up, yeah come get your love
I don't care, I don't care why you're dancing tonight
Just as long as you're there in the break of the light
I said, roll up, roll up, roll up, yeah come get your love
I don't care, I don't care, if I'm losing my way
I'll be waiting for you as the night fades away
So roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up

Can I get an amen when the night ends?
There's no winner when you're walking alone
Sliding down the last street as the day creeps
What you doin' when nobody at home?

Sugar just step into your sneakers
And step behind the speakers
Your heart will keep me beating
And make me a believer
Don't you want me?
Don't you want me?
I need some mercy in my soul, come on
Give me what you got, oh oh oh
Give me what you got, oh oh oh

(1, 2, 3, 4)
I said, roll up, roll up, roll up, yeah come get your love (yeah come get your love)
I don't care, I don't care why you're dancing tonight
Just as long as you're there in the break of the light
I said, roll up, roll up, roll up, yeah come get your love (yeah come get your love)
I don't care, I don't care, if I'm losing my way
I'll be waiting for you as the night fades away
So roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up

[x3]
Shake and strut
Touch and pump
Hand in hand
For one last touch

Give me what you got, oh oh oh

I said, roll up, roll up, roll up, yeah come get your love (yeah come get your love)
I don't care, I don't care where you're dancing tonight
Just as long as you're there in the break of the light
I said, roll up, roll up, roll up, yeah come get your love (yeah come get your love)
I don't care, I don't care, if I'm losing my way
I'll be waiting for you as the night fades away
So roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
Roll up

Tricky

I'm a nasty habit
But I'm about to do
That's a pass of passion
(Away-away-away)
What's a little to danger
If I'm next to you
Cause it's human nature
(Away-away-away)

So if you're patient, I'll be worth your time
Just tell me that you need me
You can make this anything you like
But good things don't come easy

I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back

Got a reputation
That I'm out to play
But you changed the station
(Away-away-away)
Why do I deserve you when you're stuck with me?
You're my favorite virtue
(Away-away-away)

So if you're patient, I'll be worth your time
Just tell me that you need me
You can make this anything you like
But good things don't come easy

I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back

I love the way, I love the way you love me back
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way, I love the way you love me back
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way, I love the way you love me back
(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way, I love the way you love me back

I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back
I am a, I am a, I'm a tricky one (ooh ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh)
I love the way you love me back

Fadeback

I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back

Static room, me and you
I feel the frequency shift
You play along when we kiss
But I can read your lips, woah

It just feels like your heart ain't, your heart ain't in it
Wish that I could just stop the universe from spinning

I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back
Just fade back into me
I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back
Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me

Reckless heart, miles apart
The accents turns into flips
Magnetic pulse, lovely ghost
Who I go down with this ship (woah)

It just feels like your heart ain't, your heart ain't in it
Wish that I could just stop the universe from spinning

I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back
Just fade back into me
I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back
Just fade back into me

Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me

Yeah, we're coming to the ball tonight
You pull away, but I, I, I just can't stop it
Trying to [?] your soul
But the story's told, and I just can't stop it

It just feels like your heart ain't, your heart ain't in it
Wish that I could just stop the universe from spinning

I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back
Just fade back into me
I just want you to fade back into me
I just need you to fade back
Just fade back into me

Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me
Just fade back into me

Run It

I been chasing empty spaces
To hold a piece of you
But you ain't waiting
Am I fading?
Is there nothing I can do?

And babe if I change
Do you find faith?
It's a blind shame in my room
So please don't not stay
It's a black day
Since you've gone
Chase after you

[x2]
I said you run it, run it
Yeah you run it, run it
Yeah you run it, run it
There you go
I said you run it, run it
Oh, you run it, run it
No, I shouldn't have done it
Now I know, oh

Tell me are you lonely
when you find another piece of me?
Cause I don't blame you
Tell me, it's true
I'm still the one you need

And babe if I change
Do you find faith?
It's a blind shame, I believe
So please don't not stay
It's a black day
Since you've gone
I'm on my knees

I said you run it, run it
Yeah you run it, run it
Yeah you run it, run it
There you go
I said you run it, run it
Oh, you run it, run it
No, I shouldn't have done it
Now I know, oh

There you go
Now I know, oh

I can't change all these bad days
It's a damn shame in my skin
And maybe someday you'll forgive me
And you'll love me once again

[x2]
I said you run it, run it
Yeah you run it, run it
Yeah you run it, run it
There you go
I said you run it, run it
Oh, you run it, run it
No, I shouldn't have done it
Now I know, oh

There you go
Now I know, oh

Get Right Back

In my head, when I'm home
I'm in the light of my life alive on the ropes
Higher ground, been so low
I will survive in the wild alive on my own

I'm mister I won't change my way
No I don't hear a word you say
Hey, hey
If you think I'm good as gone
No no you're dead wrong
You're dead wrong
I move on

Oh, when your heart starts beating
Oh, can you feel it, feel it?
Oh, when your soul ain't breathing
You get right back
You get right back

Oh, can you feel it, feel it?
Oh, when you stop believing
You get right back
You get right back

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

What you need?
What you want?
It's time to open your eyes and find what you lost
Take a stand when you fall
Don't let them pigeon your mind, you'll never get caught

I'm mister I won't change my way
No I don't hear a word you say
Hey, hey
If you think I'm good as gone
No no you're dead wrong

Do What You Want

You're kryptonite
You make me weak, I know the type
Rattle my bones and my heart can't take it
I'm terrified; I know it's probably suicide
But I don't care, it's a sweet temptation

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
I like to think that I could just leave
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Then you turn around and tug on my leash

You know how to put me through it
(Do what you want)
The way you love is superhuman
(Do what you want)
And I'm prepared to take a bruisin'
If I-I-I-I like what you're doing
So do what you want, you want with me

I scream your name
The stars are going up in flames
You fill me up, but the water's shallow
I take the blame; your love might be the enemy
Up on the edge, where you go I follow

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
I like to think that I could just leave
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Then you turn around and tug on my leash

You know how to put me through it
(Do what you want)
The way you love is superhuman
(Do what you want)
And I'm prepared to take a bruisin'
If I-I-I-I like what you're doing
So do what you want, you want with me
Do what you want, you want with me

I'll be your prisoner
I'll take the blame
I'm never leaving you, I like the pain
I keep forgiving ya
My heart's in chains
I'm never leaving you, I like the pain
I'll be your prisoner
I'll take the blame
I'm never leaving you, I like the pain
I keep forgiving ya
My heart's in chains
I'm never leaving you

You know how to put me through it
(Do what you want)
The way you love is superhuman
(Do what you want)
And I'm prepared to take a bruisin'
If I-I-I-I like what you're doing
So do what you want, you want with me

Do what you want, you want with me
Do what you want, you want with me
I'll be your prisoner
I'll take the blame
I'm never leaving you, I like the pain
I keep forgiving ya
Do what you want, you want with me
I keep forgiving ya
My heart's in chains
I'm never leaving you
Do what you want, you want with me

Walking Target

I'm-I'm-I'm-I'm the walking target

Who needs love to get in the summer?
Say yes to me
Say yes to me, ooh

And take you away
Yeah, take you away

I'm the walking target
I'm the walking target
So take a shot at me
Take a shot at me

Life is short, so come and reach out and touch me
I'm looking at you
I'm looking at you
I'm over here on the east side, come and get me
Oh yes, I'm free
Oh yes, I'm free

I'm the walking target
I'm the walking target
I'm the walking target
So take a shot at me

Take a shot at me
Take a shot at me
So take a shot at me

I'm the walking target
So take a shot at me
So take a shot at me
So take a shot at me

Take a shot at me
I'm I'm I'm
So take a shot at me
Take a shot at me

A Place For Us

For all you broken renegades
Crash into your barricades
The future ain't no guarantee
We're all just floating out at sea

Cause we're marching to the beat out in the open air
And we're all just working pieces trying to fit somewhere
We wander 'round in circles and we talk in squares
But as long as we're together, we can go anywhere

Yeah, there's a place for us
(Yeah there's a place for us)
Where only we can go
(Where only we can go)
So break down the door, knock out the lights
We're gonna be just fine
Cause there's a place for us
(Yeah there's a place for us)

To all those kings, we are the lives
All those dreams now realized
The future ain't no guarantee
We're all just floating out at sea

Cause we're marching to the beat out in the open air
And we're all just working pieces trying to fit somewhere

Yeah, there's a place for us
(Yeah there's a place for us)
Where only we can go
(Where only we can go)
So break down the door, knock out the lights
We're gonna be just fine
Cause there's a place for us
(Yeah there's a place for us)

(There's a place for us)
(There's a place for us)

Cause we're marching to the beat out in the open air
And we're all just working pieces trying to fit somewhere
We wander 'round in circles and we talk in squares
But as long as we're together, we can go anywhere

Yeah, there's a place for us
(Yeah there's a place for us)
Where only we can go
(Where only we can go)
So break down the door, knock out the lights
We're gonna be just fine
I stand on the wall
And if we fall, we're gonna be just fine
Cause there's a place for us
(Yeah there's a place for us)

(There's a place for us)
Cause we're marching to the beat out in the open air
But as long as we're together, we can go anywhere
