Be mine sometime Someday like today Take my life line And we can be far away Throw away your worries and woes As we lie on the beach and we curl our toes And let the cool of the water feel good with the heat of the sun Pack up your material things And we will pick a new direction and see what it brings It's you and me on the run Let's go, start slow Don't wait, it's not too late You know as well as I know That we could be far away Say goodbye to all of your bills And your rent and your job and your run of the mills And the burden on your back that feels like it's weighing a ton Give up your material things And we will pick a new direction and see what it brings It's you and me on the run I don't want to stay here playing the game Day after day, it's all the same How 'bout you and me get away For one more day Come on, get real gone We'll take my Chevrolet on the interstate We'll drive until the dawn So won't you come along And we will be far away Give up all the struggle and strife And the troublesome things that always tangle your life Or it'll all be over and you won't even have any fun Throw away your worries and woes As we pick a new direction and see where it goes It's you and me on the run

Indubitably I wish I could see what you saw in me I wish I could be Somebody more like the memory That you have of me I wish I knew how to keep your love I wish I knew what you're dreaming of I wish I could rise above Those things I said today I'd wish them away If I could only keep your love I wish I knew What in the world's going on with you But I haven't a clue Why you would do those things you do And say we're through I wish I knew how to keep your love I wish I knew what you're dreaming of I wish I could rise above Those things I said today I'd wish them away If I could only keep your love If I could keep your love I'd lock it away Hold it somewhere special In case of another lonely day, well Why keep hanging on If you're just moving on again And taking all your love I'd like to see I wish I could see what you saw in me I wish I could be Somebody more like the memory That you have of me I wish I knew how to keep your love I wish I knew what you're dreaming of I wish I could rise above Those things I said today I'd wish them away If I could only keep your love If I could keep your love I'd lock it away Hold it warm and dry In case of another rainy day, well Why keep hanging on If you're just moving on again And taking all your love

In the time it will take to write this song I will have fallen in love with you I promise it won't take me long Maybe just about a minute or two When I start singing 'bout All the things that make you "you" Then I start thinking 'bout All the wonderful things that you do And you do In the time it will take to write this song I will have fallen in love with you If you listen and follow along Maybe you will feel it too This is the part where I sing About all the time you've been my friend So just keep on listening The payoff will be there in the end Just for you In the time it will take to write this song I will have fallen in love with you My predilection for affection prolongs Accumulation of ovation for you I write all these fancy words To appear as if I'm witty and smart The truth is I'm really a fool Who is wishing you would give me your heart And you do In the time it will take to sing this song I hope you've fallen in love with me Together we'll never go wrong You'll be astounded by how happy we'll be This is the part of the song Where I repeat the things I told you before I tell you how great you are And I end it all with you wanting more And you do In the time that it took to sing this song I think I've fallen in love with you

You don't impress me with the way you do your hair I'm not concerned with the clothes you choose to wear I only like you for the way you carry yourself Just be natural, let the world take care of itself It'll be all right You feel the pressure, it's always on your mind All this pressure to follow close behind Don't you listen, break out from the pack Be your own self, give the costume back It'll be all right You're all I need, and I need a lot You don't gotta be something you're not You're all I need, I say yes, indeed You're all I need and all that I want You're all that I want and just what I needed All around you, in everything you see Endless pictures of who you're supposed to be Close your eyes now, let the pictures fade Take my hand, there's no need to be afraid It'll be all right You're all I need, and I need a lot You don't gotta be something you're not You're all I need, I say yes, indeed You're all I need and all that I want You're all that I want and just what I needed Every time you run away from all The things you thought would make you fall Into a place where you were on your own Turn to me and I will help you see You don't need to hide your love And hold it all alone You're all I need, and I need a lot You don't gotta be something you're not You're all I need, I say yes, indeed You're all I need and all that I want You're all that I want You're all I want and just what I needed

When you're holding someone And their arms are cold When you try your hardest But it's getting old And the feeling's gone You gotta go along to get along When you feel like leaving But you just can't go When you're missing something And you just don't know Why the feeling's gone You gotta go along to get along Take a look around At this thing you've built Before you knock it down You just might find It's worth your time To get along When you feel you're losing The will to fight It just might take time To set things right When they're going wrong You gotta go along to get along Take a look around At this thing you've built Before you knock it down You just might find It's worth your time When you're holding someone And their arms are cold When you're missing something And you just don't know Why the feeling's gone You gotta go along to get along Keep hanging on You gotta go along to get along

Give me something to hold on to I need a reason to stay with you I'm trying to leave here, but it just don't show I've been doing it real slow I've been crawlin' away I let a woman get the best of me Still, I'm hanging around so helplessly I lack the courage to just cut and run Even after all you've done I've been crawlin' away The road is long, it's been calling me It brings me down onto my knees, yeah I've been trying to stand up on my own But being held down here is all I've ever known I wish I had a way to make you see I just want to be free I've been crawlin' away The road is long, it's been calling me It brings me down onto my knees Lord, I've been crawlin' away I've been crawlin' away I want to leave today I've been crawlin' away Oh lord I've been crawlin' away

I am here, I fill the space As I wait to see your face I stand my ground, I wonder why Will you hear me if I let out a cry To the sky The summer days turn into fall And still I wait to hear your call I hold on for your lovely voice When I hear it, I shall rejoice To the sky Open your eyes And see that I am alive Like a breath becomes a wind One will end, another one begins You feel familiar in everything When all is quiet, it's your name I sing To the sky Open your eyes And see that I am alive
