Damn Yankees Someone To Believe

There was a time

When a man lived by his word

And the simple truth

Was not so hard to take

When his enemies

Were thousands of miles away

And he stood by

The promises he’d make

All that I ask for

All that I need

Is someone that I can believe

Yeah

Just like the air

That we breathe in a single day

To a drowning man

How much do you think he’d pay

All that I ask for

All that I need

Is someone that I can believe

When I listen to the things you try to say

Any ordinary man would fade away

But if you want I’m ready to receive

I know that I can believe

Every word you say

And the love you give away

Goes straight to my heart

And everything you do

And how you follow through

Can keep us together

Or tear us apart

When I listen to the things you try to say

Any ordinary man would fade away

But if you want I’m ready to receive

Well I would not have it any other way

I know that I

I know that I

I know that I can believe

Yeah

And I am listening

To every word you say

Damn Yankees Runaway

(Everyone needs a place to run away, run away)

Summer night, moonlit sky

Tearing pages from a magazine, she cries

“I don’t wanna be the lonely one tonight.”

She said, I came to this place, full of dreams

Young and innocent and only 16

Now I wonder if it’s too late to turn back.

So she runs, and she hides, and she dries the tears from

her eyes

And the night goes on, and on, and on

She’s in the twilight zone (twilight zone)

Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away

It’s such a long way home

When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

Perfect day, feels like Spring

Can see forever but you can’t see anything

Now I wonder why they call it “paradise”

It’s a crime, it’s a shame

And they won’t remember your name

And your life goes on, and on, and on

It’s like the twilight zone (twilight zone)

Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away

But she won’t go home

So she’s gotta run, run, run away

She came from a small town

So tired of getting pushed around

In the dark of the night, no one around

She’ll run from this shabby town, yeah, yeah, yeah

It’s a laugh, it’s a game

Don’t you let it drive you insane

Cause your life goes on, and on, and on….

It’s like the twilight zone (twilight zone)

Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away

But she won’t go home

When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

She’s in the twilight zone (twilight zone)

Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away

It’s such a long way home

When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

Damn Yankees This Side Of Hell

I don’t want to talk

That much about anything

And I don’t want to know

About who you been seeing

My will is on

And I can’t say no

The feeling’s strong

But I can’t let go

Baby

You got me living this side of hell

Living this side oh well

You got me salivating

Was it Pavlov’s intention

Living this side of hell

I don’t know much

About wide-eyed innocence

Or hanging around

Without your cheap intelligence

My brain went south

As I hit the floor

And all I want is more and more

Honey

You got me living this side of hell

Living this side oh well

While I was goin’ to school

You bent me over the rules

Living this side of hell

I come around

And start to knock at your door

I hear a voice say

“She don’t live here no more”

That’s it for me

I guess I don’t get to score

And then you woo me, you do me, you chew me up and spit me out

You keepin’ it up

‘Til a quarter to three

That little bitty thang

Got a hold on me

Honey

What you doin’ to me

What yo tryin’ to do

What you tryin’ to do to me

Got me living this side of hell

Living this side oh well

I’m in way over my head

Why can’t I be like Ted

Living this side of hell

Got me living this side of hell

You got me living this side oh well

Is it your good intention

Or a crisis intervention

Got me living this side of hell

Living this side

Living this side

Living this side

Living this side of hell

Dig a little deeper hole

Get a little self control

One more night out in the cold

Face down in my doggie bowl

And I’m not one of your bitches

Get back you dirty dog

Been messin’ where you don’t belong

Stop sniffin’ round my britches
