Richard Marx I Get No Sleep

Got a house full of fortune and they pay me in gold

For something I’d do for free.

But there’s still something missing that a man can’t hold,

It’s like a weight over me, so scared the thrill will be gone.

But I’m the one who keeps the pressure on,

All I’ve got is all I need,

But I get no sleep and I’m tired to the bone…

…i know I’m not alone.

Well, I’m sick of walking ’round with blood in my eyes,

Just keeping up with this town.

I’m a roadrunner racing, but I don’t see the signs,

I’ve got to learn to slow down.

My life makes it hard to complain,

But there’s time I’d take my school days back again…

…four o’clock and I’m still counting sheep.

Love to change the system, but I’m in too deep.

I keep the pressure far away as I can,

But it still comes back again…

Richard Marx Come Running

I’m a prisoner in the night

Taken captive like the light

I just can’t forget you

I’ve been frozen in my tracks

I’ve been broken right in half

But I couldn’t help but let you

Roll, stroll

Like a voodoo inside my soul

Strange, daze

Melted my self-control

Any old excuse at all

All you have to do is call

Baby, don’t you know that I’ll come running

Any time of night or day

Anywhere or anyway

Baby, don’t you know that I’ll come running

You’d have thought I knew the score

That I’d seen this all before

Guess who’s got my number

You held me helpless as a child

As you slowly, you drove me wild

And I didn’t stop to wonder

Why, try

There’s no explaining this spell

Tossed, lost

You know you do it so well

Any old excuse at all

All you have to do is call

Baby, don’t you know that I’ll come running

Any time of night or day

Anywhere or anyway

Baby, don’t you know that I’ll come running

Richard Marx Can’t Help Falling In Love

Wise men say only fools rush in.

But I can’t help falling in love with you.

Shall I stay? Would it be a sin?

If I, I can’t help falling in love with you.

Like a river flows, surely to the sea,

Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be.

Take my hand, take my whole life too.

For I, I can’t help falling in love with you.

Like a river flows, surely to the sea,

Darling so it goes, some things are meant to be.

Take my hand; take my whole life too.

For I, I can’t help falling in love with you.

No I, I can’t help falling in love with you.

Richard Marx Miracle

It’s hard to see reason

When there’s so little hope alive,

But this is the season

To put faith in innocent eyes.

We’re all thinking too much,

We’re so out of touch.

We need to start over again.

So just let it wander,

‘Cause you’re never too old to pretend.

[Chorus:]

Tell you, just a little miracle

Is all you need to believe

Just a little miracle

Is all you need to believe.

It’s not too late to wake up.

Don’t make no difference who you are.

Just take off your make-up,

And discover the child in your heart.

[Chorus]

We’re all thinking too much,

We’re so out of touch.

We need to start over again.

So just let it wander

‘Cause you’re never too old to pretend.

[Chorus]

Richard Marx Angelia

Memories of you and me

Tumble inside my head

The way that we used to be

Things that we said

No one has ever made me believe so strong

You left me to wonder

How did our love go wrong

[Chorus:]

Angelia

Where you running to now

Angelia

Got to make you turn around

I lie awake at night

Wait for the sun to shine

I still feel you next to me

Your lips on mine

Without a warning

You made our love a lie

You said you were sorry

But you never told me why

[Chorus]

Maybe my love is in vain

Maybe you’re the hurting kind

Can’t take no more of this pain

I’ve got to get you off my mind

Tried to be what you wanted

I gave you all I had

You left me without nothin’

Nothin’ but a photograph

[Chorus]

Richard Marx What’s Wrong With That

I may be rotten to the core

And stop me if you think I am

A kid in a candy store

The same as any dirty old man

I know I’m not the first to see

I guarantee I’m not the last

So take some good advice from me

Just try it once before you ask

I hear an enticing voice

(Live it up, live it up, do it now, boy)

I don’t like the other choice

(Live it up, live it up)

[Chorus:]

What’s wrong with that

What’s wrong with the fountain of youth

What’s wrong with that

What’s wrong with a little self delusion

Who you think is foolin’ who

And who will be the last to laugh

Here’s another lame excuse

You’re old enough to be her dad

I’ve heard all the reasons why

(Give it up, give it up, take a powder)

I turn them my blindest eye

(Give it up, give it up)

What’s wrong with that

What’s wrong with the fountain of youth

What’s wrong with that

What’s wrong with a little self delusion

What’s wrong with that

What’s wrong with a flower in bloom

What’s wrong with that

What’s wrong with a little self delusion

Days don’t hide secrets of the heart

Only you and I do

Little white lies rip you right apart

And any way they want to

Life goes by, done before you start

I can’t wait around to satisfy you

[Chorus]

Richard Marx That Was Lulu

When you woke up this morning

On your front lawn

You had a smile on your lips and

Your wallet was gone

You remember some girl

But the rest is all a blur

Well, you’re not the first one to fall under

Her spell

I know dozens of guys who’ve been there

As well

They’ve got scars to show

And the owe ’em all to her

That was Lulu

Did she fool you?

That was Lulu

That ain’t legal

That ain’t voodoo

That was Lulu

Well, Lulu’s got charms that money can’t buy

And she’s made her reputation

Making strong men cry

All the victims may change

But their stories are the same

Lulu’s there when your airplane

Just happens to crash

Still she walks away without even a scratch

Leaving in flames

But she never leaves her name

That was Lulu

Did she fool you?

That was Lulu

That ain’t legal

That ain’t voodoo

That was Lulu

And I know what I’m talking about

I saw it all from the start

Long before she started running around

Who do you think ran away with my heart

That was Lulu

That was Lulu

Did she fool you?

That was Lulu

That ain’t legal

That ain’t voodoo

That was Lulu

Richard Marx O Holy Night

O holy night

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear savior’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

Til He appeared and the soul felt

It’s worth a thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night divine

O night, o night divine

O night divine

O night divine

O night divine

O night divine

O night divine

Divine

O night divine

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night divine

O night, o night divine

O night divine

O night divine

Richard Marx Done To Me

I remember yesterday

Like it wasn’t far away

And you were by my side

Now it’s all a bitter haze

I don’t recognize my face

And I’m not thinkin’ right

I can’t help myself

With you gone, I am nothing without you

Just a ghost chasing your memory

Shaking, fading….a shadow where I used to be

Baby, look what you’ve done to me

Well, you broke my heart to death

And now the only thing that’s left

Are my emotional remains

I wish the silence would shut up

Cause I’ve really had quite enough

This slow burning pain

I can’t even cry for help

With you gone, I am nothing without you

Just a ghost chasing your memory

Shaking, fading….a shadow where I used to be

Baby, look what you’ve done to me

How dare you make me love you

How dare you make me love you

With you gone, I am nothing without you

Just a ghost chasing your memory

Shaking, fading….a shadow where I used to be

Baby, look what you’ve done to me

Richard Marx This I Promise You

When the visions around you

Bring tears to your eyes

And all that surround you

Are secrets and lies

I’ll be your strength

I’ll give you hope

Keeping your faith when it’s gone

The one you should call,

Was standing here all along

And I will take

You in my arms

And hold you right where you belong

Till the day my life is through

This I promise you

This I promise you

I’ve loved you forever

In lifetimes before

And I promise you never

Will you hurt anymore

I give you my word

I give you my heart

This is a battle we’ve won

And with this vow

Forever has now begun

Just close your eyes

Each loving day

I know this feeling won’t go away

Every word I say is true

This I promise you

This I promise you

Over and over I fall

When I hear you call

Without you in my life baby

I just wouldn’t be living at all

And I will take

I will take

You in my arms

You in my arms

And hold you right where you belong

Right where you belong

Every word I say is true

This I promise you

Every word I say is true

This I promise you

This I promise you
