Eskimo Joe This Room

What ever happened to this room?

It used to be so good

But now the days pile on the floor

And rain leaks through the crepe paper

We stuck up on the door

No more pictures on the wall

No more memories of holidays

We took when we were

Two years younger than we are

Today

All I know is she ‘s never impressed by me

Broken bottles on the ground

Blown by the wind shattered pieces lie amoung the plants

Collecting water and reflecting all the sound

They are reflecting all the sound

All I know is she’s never impressed by me

Makes no difference can’t you see

She’s the one who needs to be

All I know she’s never impressed by me

And the secret note that she wrote..oh I’m special

What ever happened to this room?

Eskimo Joe This Is Pressue

This is pressure

Stay away from me

If life is bigger, then what do you see

You’re no better, no better than me

If this is pressure, show me

How you bleed

There is no romance in suffocation

The walls fall down like your expectations

You want to scream and you want to shout

But you’ve built up steam you can’t let out

This is pressure

No you won’t see me

Just ask your brother what he now believes

You’re no better, no better than me

If this is pressure

Tell me what do you see

There is no romance in suffocation

The words fall out, like you’re out of patience

You want to scream and you want to shout

But you’ve built up steam you can’t let out

This is pressure

Pressure Now

Pressure come on down

There is no romance in suffocation

The walls fall down like your expectations

You want to scream and you want to shout

But you’ve built up steam you can’t let out

There is no romance in suffocation

The words fall out like your out of patience

You want to scream and you want to shout

But you can’t let out, no you can’t let out

This is pressure

This is pressure

This is pressure

So this is pressure

Eskimo Joe Gave It All Away

So long

Was it the prettiest face that you know

And hold on

Is it real, is it real

When you don’t even know what you feel

Oh no

Well I took the pity

The pity from your pocket

This is real

This is real

And nothing’s gonna stop it

Oh no

You gave it all away

Your light fades out like another day

You gave it all away

And how long

And is there anything else I should know

Well I took the pity

The pity from your pocket

This is real

This is real

And nothing’s gonna stop it

Oh no

You gave it all away

Your light fades out like another day

You gave it all away

Your light fades out like another day

You gave it all away

Oh no

Well I took the pity

The pity from your pocket

This is real

This is real

And nothing’s gonna stop it

Oh no

You gave it all away

Your light fades out like another day

You gave it all away

Your light fades out like another day

You gave it all away

Oh no

Oh no

Eskimo Joe A Song Is A City

See him walking in the park

With a few things on his mind

He’s been talking with the ones

With the ones that he loves

Tell me who is gonna pay

I’m so anxious I don’t know

You can see it on their face

As it takes its toll

And he takes his time

Yeh he takes his time

No one ever, ever gonna mind

I don’t care what the future holds

All i know is that I’m getting old

I think I’ve had an affair

At least that’s what they call it these days

And it wasn’t very fair

To the ones that I love

Well I just pushed her away

There was nothing I could say

Now I hang myself each night

With this noose that I built

And he takes his time yeah he takes his time

No one ever, ever gonna mind

I don’t care what the future holds

All that I know is that I’m getting old

Eskimo Joe Sydney Song

See me come and see me go

In my fancy resturant

All the time you never know

No, I can’t pay for any of it

Don’t like the way you use your tongue

To get one up on me

Oh man, can’t you see.

How do you think we got this far

I go, hey man, look at me sing

Oh man I got a brand new thing

It goes a bada, bada, bada hey man

Don’t know what I was waiting for

See me passed out there on the floor

See that girl over there, dress her up all in my stare

Don’t want any of you to leave

Keep you ’round just as scenery

Oh, man can’t you see

It seems the way of Sydney

Eskimo Joe Echo

Well I shut my eyes and the world is dead

Then they open up and I’m born again

Like an empty space in an empty bed

Oh there’s a sound that keeps repeating

Going faster as I leave it goes…

Ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh

I can hear an echo when I’m with you

And I can’t seem to let go

Baby I hear an echo when I’m with you

Well I see your face in the shadow moon

Where the echos dance with the ghosts of you

Like an empty space in an empty room

Oh there’s a sound that keeps on beating

Going faster as I leave it goes…

Ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh

I can hear an echo when I’m with you

And I can’t seem to let go

And baby I hear an echo

(I hear it)

I can hear an echo when I’m with you

And I can’t seem to let go

Baby I hear an echo when I’m with you

Ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh

A hundred thousand times it keeps repeating

Ooh-oh-oh-oh

Can you hear it?

I can hear an echo

And I can’t seem to let go

Baby I hear an echo

I can hear an echo when I’m with you

And I can’t seem to let go

Baby I hear an echo when I’m with you

When I’m with you

Maybe I can let go of that feeling

Eskimo Joe Losing Friends Over Love

A friend went away to another town

Where you set your watch to the sound of a pound

The first girl I loved soon followed it seemed

And when the second one went we were choosing teams

She got hers and I got mine

But somehow everybody seem to get on fine

But we were losing friends over love

Losing friends over love

When I went out just the other night

I said “put your hands up, cause we’re gonna fight”

But who am I to act so tough

When I learn so little and forget so much

Now the heart will break when it hits the ground

So wake up little girl you’re a woman now

But we were losing friends over love

Losing friends over love

Alright now

Some move forward and some move back

Some buy a ticket and don’t come back

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

Some go up and some fall down

Some buy a ticket and leave this town

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

No one says a word but their lips are poised

Cause everybody’s got an opinion of course

And we were losing friends over love

Losing friends over love

All the stupid Things you do at night

When you been up for three days and you’re so uptight

And we were losing friends over love

Losing friends over love

Losing friends over love

Losing friends over love

Alright now

Some move forward and some move back

Some buy a ticket and don’t come back

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

Some go up and some fall down

Some buy a ticket and leave this town

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

She could run away to London

She could run overseas

A merry go round in another town

It all seems the same to me

Alright now

Some move forward and some move back

Some buy a ticket and don’t come back

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

Some go up and some fall down

Some buy a ticket and leave this town

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

Some go up and some fall down

Some buy a ticket and leave this town

How did everything go wrong

We’re all just trying to carry on

We’re all just trying to carry on

Eskimo Joe Love Is A Drug

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

We were cryin’ again,

Fighting with our backs to the wall

While our blood’s on fire

Love is a drug

But you still can’t fool desire

But I’m trying

We lost total control

We lost total control

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Take what you want

But you still can’t fool desire

We lost total control

We lost total control

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Walking with our eyes through the sky on a tightrope wire

Fight like a flame in the night till our hearts get tired

We’re trying

Just want tears, we’ll replace anything you want

Shoots up to drop his arms till you hit the floor

Now we’re dying

We lost total control

We lost total control

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Take what you want

But you still can’t fool desire

We lost total control

We lost total control

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Fight like a flame in the night till your heart’s all tired

We lost total control

We lost total control

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Take what you want

But you still can’t fool desire

We lost total control

We lost total control

Total control

We lost total control

Love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

I said that love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher

Yes love is a drug

But the drug won’t take me higher.

Eskimo Joe Beating Like A Drum

This room is like the belly of a ghost

Swaying to the rhythm of a heart that is now lost

So tell me that I’m wrong

Tell me that tehre’s a consequence

Or do you still remember me alive

Beating like a drum

I had a lot to drink last night

Now I’m feeling old

Is there anything that I can buy

That I have not sold

So tell me that I’m gone

From your state of mind

Do you still remember me alive

Do you still remember me alive

Beating like a …

Drum that beats upon the floor

A shadow underneath teh door

I don’t want to shoot this gun

But everything just stops

Like the beat of a drum

So tell me that I’m wrong

Tekk ne that there’s a consequence

Or do you still remember me alive

Beating like a drum

Eskimo Joe Falling For You (Intro)

This is a very privat moment

In a very public affair

And all the people pretend not to notice

But the back of their heads still stare

And I could tell you it’s all my fault

If that’s easier to digest

But this old wound just opens up

Like a key hole in my chest…
