I could be working, making money with my hands Instead I'm walking by the ocean in the sand No need to worry about the hours of the day A cool breeze is blowing, and that is why I say All Fruits Ripe Everything is all right The daily grind back home cannot reach across the sea Important deadlines pass right on by without me I could use more time like this, a simpler life for me to lead When I get back home, I hope the laid back style comes with me All Fruits Ripe Everything is all right All Fruits Ripe Everything is all right Some may say I've had my day But I want to hold on to this feel a little longer All Fruits Ripe Everything is all right All Fruits Ripe Everything is all right Some may say that I've had my day But I want to hold on to this feel a little longer I could be working with my hands Instead I'm walking in the sand

I got a funny feeling things aren't going to go my way Don't get me wrong I'm ok It's just that no matter how good I got it It seems there's always something better on the other side And I can't shake this feeling inside That I'm on the outside looking in or the inside looking out When I'm in a room with two doors it really stresses me out And I'll likely end up down on the floor 'cause I'm always on the wrong side of the door Yeah I'm always on the wrong side of the door What if there's so much more That's hiding just behind that door Why can't I be happy with the things that I got Instead of pining for something I'm not Now I got a funny feeling things are starting to go my way But it won't be long before I say I'm not ok, and I know I'll be back On the outside looking in or the inside looking out When I'm in a room with two doors it really stresses me out And I'll likely end up down on the floor 'cause I'm always on the wrong side of the door Yeah I'm always on the wrong side of the door I'm always on the wrong side of the door

Like a tall hot lemming headed for a fall She takes her jet black beemer straight to the mall A walk in closet full of clothes and a mountain of shoes Another brand new dress would cure those nothing-to-wear blues Retail therapy isn't that hard When there's ten grand left on your credit card She said I need more stuff Too much is never enough I need more stuff Too much is never enough Ipod xbox digital toys 16 megapixel boys will be boys A GPS hummer and a dual screen DVD High definition satellite plasma TV Downtown surround sound speakers really sing When you're surfing the net for the next big thing I need more stuff Too much is never enough I need more stuff Too much is never Too much is never enough Maybe these things shouldn't mean that much to me But maybe someday I'll win the lottery I just can't get enough I need more stuff I need more, I need more, I need more, I need more, I need more I need more, I need more, I need more, I need more, I need more I need more stuff Too much is never enough I need more stuff Too much is never enough I need more stuff, I need more stuff, I need more stuff I need more stuff, I need more stuff, I need more Too much is never Too much is never Too much is never enough

It would be nice to know If you still listen to those old LPs When the world has laid you low Toss and turn with sorrow all night long Then rush at dawn to make angels in the snow It would be nice to know But I don't understand why I still give a damn It would be nice to know That you'll have nothing to do with the ones Who told us to take it slow Right or wrong do you still believe now That the warmest moment is the afterglow? It would be nice to know But I don't understand why I still give a damn Drop me a line If you're in town Drop in anytime We could catch up On all we left behind It would be nice to know That you keep looking for a safe haven There the four winds never blow That you might finally deign to tell The untold reason you felt you had to go It would be nice to know But I don't want you to understand That I still love you

Retroactive 03:11
Late last night I had a crazy dream I was standing in line at the super power machine I feared I would choose something I'd regret That's when it hit me and I knew what I should get I opened the door, lowered my head Stepped inside and said I wanna be Retro, Retro, Retroactive I wanna be Retro, Retro, Retroactive Now I walk around solving crimes all day After the fact I make problems go away As the news spread my power came in great demand This hasn't worked out quite like I had planned But if it gets too much for me to do Well I can fix that too 'Cause I'm Retro, Retro, Retroactive Yes I'm Retro, Retro, Retroactive Don't wanna be inactive Too hard to be reactive Don't care to be proactive I just want to be Retroactive I wanna be, I wanna be Retroactive I wanna be, I wanna be Retroactive

People try to put us down (talkin bout my generation) Just because we get around (talkin bout my generation) Things they do look awful cold (talkin bout my generation) I hope I die before I get old (talkin bout my generation) This is my generation This is my generation, baby Why don't you all fade away (talkin bout my generation) And don't try to dig what we all say (talkin bout my generation) I'm not trying to cause a big sensation (talkin bout my generation) I'm just talkin' bout my generation (talkin bout my generation) This is my generation This is my generation, baby Why don't you all fade away (talkin bout my generation) And don't try to dig what we all say (talkin bout my generation) I'm not trying to cause a big sensation (talkin bout my generation) I'm just talkin' bout my generation (talkin bout my generation) This is my generation This is my generation, baby People try to put us down (talkin bout my generation) Just because we get around (talkin bout my generation) Things they do look awful cold (talkin bout my generation) I hope I die before I get old (talkin bout my generation) This is my generation This is my generation, baby

I was doing fine Not thinking about you all the time Then I saw you Now you're all that I can see Made it through the day With other things to do and say Then I said your name And it felt so good to taste you on my lips Please Come Back Please Leave Me Alone I reach out for you The clock lies half past two And I wonder Is there a cure for this Is there a doctor in another town Someone who has run aground Who could cut me up So I wouldn't bleed my useless life away Please Come Back Please Leave Me Alone We'll meet some stray day Pretty speeches to say And I'll pretend That now I understand But the only lesson to learn The one that will always burn Is this sad small truth We hate most those who give us hope Please Come Back Please Leave Me Alone

I want to be your one and only I want to be your man I want to be the one you want I want to be the only one who can make you Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic I want to be the one you think of When you need a place to go I want to be the one you run to I want to be the only one who knows Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic I am trapped inside your magic spell I stand vigil by your wishing well I'll be the one who calls your name at night I'll be the one who's always holding you so tight Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic Little Miss Magic, Little Miss I want to be your one and only I want to be your man I want to be the one you want I want to be the only one who can make you Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic Little Miss Magic, Little Miss Magic

If I told you that I loved you, That the earth was really flat That even when I’m smiling, I’m pretty sure I smell a rat Would you call me on the carpet, Could you tell the lie from what’s true Or would you sit there with that crazy smile and say Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too If I showed you a mountain top, Then called it a silly dream And spilled out all my secrets, As I choked back a midnight scream Would you call me on the carpet, Could you tell the lie from what’s true Or would you sit there with that crazy smile and say Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too In your eye I see the wink of a lie, And that maybe ‘cause The only mountain top I’ve ever known Is where my father’s dreams went to die, My father’s dreams went to die So when you wake me at the dawn, With that look I’ve grown to dread The one that keeps me wondering, What’s going on inside your head I want to call you on the carpet, I want you to tell me what is true But I just give you my crazy smile and say Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too

Paris 03:42
I wish I could find Someone I’d love To take To Paris Someone to laugh Through the gray of Saint Germaine A heartland girl With big city eyes Who’d say The French invented the kiss So please let’s never leave Paris Since I don’t have one Maybe I’d find A love In Paris Sitting alone Staring at me Through the mist Her hand at her hair A scarf at her neck She’d say Your touch is what I will miss So please let’s never leave Paris Left Bank or right Montmartre by day and the metro at night A painter’s delight Where even the blind, they say, can find Love In the city of light Love seems so foreign Out of season In my Nomad town Tourist by birth I always stayed Near to home I’ve been so close But never quite there I pray For a god to grant me this Just one time let me see Paris
