I'm lonely; you are lonely For the good of our hearts Let's be lonely together The moon and the stars are so far apart But don't tell me that they're not together Take a walk on the boardwalk and see what we see Maybe we'll find we both like cherry ice cream Sooner or later we must disagree So let's realize perfection is not meant to be I'm lonely; you are lonely It's a big world outside Let's be lonely together If the world ends tomorrow, we still have tonight Let's be lonely together Take a walk on the boardwalk and see what we see Maybe we'll find we both like cherry ice cream Sooner or later we must disagree So let's realize perfection is not meant to be I'm lonely; you are lonely It's a big world outside Let's be lonely together If the world ends tomorrow, we still have tonight Let's be lonely together Let's be lonely Let's be lonely Let's be, let's be together

Get No Sleep 03:19
I can't get no sleep Anytime of night because I just stay the same No matter how damn fast I am running Out of time Out of patience  Out of reasons to be  Wide awake in bed Waiting for the sun to reach me Get my hands into the dirt Move every muscle till it hurts Wrestle blood out of a stone  Wear it down into the bone I've got to get me back to work I can't get no sleep When the day is said and done I just got this sense  A devil that I can't outrun It's in my blood Screaming in my gut  It will not let me go Every night it keeps me up Get my hands into the dirt Move every muscle till it hurts Wrestle blood out of a stone  Wear it down into the bone I've got to get me back to work Do you ever wake up as the person that you thought that you could be? I just want to wake up as the person that I know that I can be
3.
Please tell me again why I shouldn't go Please tell me again but I already know What'll I do without you? Where will I lay my head if not in your bed? What if I find I don't need you? Please tell me again why I shouldn't go This is your one last night To put up one hell of a fight And tell me the truth Please tell me again why I shouldn't go Tell me and I won't go

A Day Off 03:46
Death is coming over Go ahead and set the table Maybe he will take a day off Come and join our morning meal Will he compliment the coffee? Maybe read the paper? I can ask him if he's sorry I can't imagine how it feels To have the nerve To come to our world Take away what we're living for If I could start a conversation If I could only have his ear Maybe he would get to know us Maybe give me one more year To say goodbye for what it's worth I got some plans left here on this earth All the names and the faces taken away All the names of our children We are children I know the odds are stacked against me He's probably heard it all before Maybe death will take the day off
5.
I don't have a secret how I spend my days I can't get you to heaven, I hope you know the way If you keep your heart open, I'll share mine Tonight, we're gonna sleep just fine It keeps getting tougher not to throw them stones I wanna tell the righteous just where they can go Don't become a mirror, become the light Tonight, we're gonna sleep just fine Is it because when we were young We were loved and we passed it on Is it because we know enough To know we don't know nothing at all Tonight, we're gonna sleep just fine
6.
If I'm having a boy If I'm having a boy A great big, hairy bundle of joy I'll call him Barbecue Suitcase and he'll be alright As long as I am there to hold him tight If I'm having a girl If I'm having a girl Sweetest darn gift in the whole wide world  I'll call her Dinner Party Pursecake and she'll be just fine As long as she gets cuddled all the time How much difference does it make Still a rose by any other name Might as well be Dinner Party Pursecake or Barbecue Suitcase Just love that baby each and every day
