BACK TO BASICS (Henderson, Temple)

We're going back, back to basics
We're going back, back to the neighborhood
We're going back

I was 17 when I left home
Went as far away as I could get
Headed southward to the sunshine
To meet people I hadn't met
Put my faith in situations
Anything to reject the past
Situations turned sour
False prophecy never lasts

We're going back, back to basics
We're going back, back to reality
We're going back

Uh-oh I found trouble
When the mirror started changing
I started reading started believing
Silly magazines
Did me nothing got me nowhere
Except confusion such confusion
I'm going back to what meant something
When I was a litle boy

We're going back, back to basics
We're going back, back to the neighborhood
We're going back

That's my story if you didn't like it
I'm so sorry we'll have to agree to disagree
If you think I'm gonna be hurt by it
That's the difference between you and me

We're going back, back to basics

SHE SHEILA

Who's that on my radio?
Who's that on my new TV?
Who's that on my stereo
Sheila is invading me

She Sheila's in my mind
But when she looks at me
She might as well be blind
She Sheila's in my head
But when I talk to her
I lie alone in bed

Pictures all around me
Pictures of her everywhere
She's the picture of my dreams
Picture perfect picture stare

She Sheila's in my mind
But when she looks at me
She might as well be blind
She Sheila's in my head
But when I talk to her
I lie alone in bed

OPERATION

Just one question
Was was going through your mind?
I don't know
The night in question
What did you expect to find?
I don't know

I need an operation
To mend my broken heart
I need an operation
To cut this love apart
I need an operation
I need it right away
I need an operation
To cut this love away

I can't believe it
I thought that we had crossed the line
But no, no, no
I can't believe it
I thought we thought alike this time
But no, no,no

I need an operation
To mend my broken heart
I need an operation
To cut this love apart
I need an operation
I need it right away
I need an operation
To cut this love away

DEAR JOHN

Tears roll down her face
She waves until the airplane disappears
He is off to fight
For what is right it all seems very clear
He heard the call to war
It came from far away

Dear John (Dear John)
You live so far away

Tears roll down her face
She turns to him and finds an empty pillow
How could she have known
She urged him on now she's all alone
He heard the call to war
It took him far away

Dear John (Dear John)
You live so far away

Tears roll down her face
She takes the poison pen into her hand
"I'm so sorry John, I have to have a life
You understand"
They say he died a hero
Walked into the line of fire
He had a wrinkled letter
He clutched it tightly as he walked beyond the line

Dear John (Dear John)
You died so far away

So far away

BREAKAWAY (Temple, Henderson)

You're so tired of the same old excuses
And he says you're to blame
You hear the sound of your heart as it's breaking
Really drives you insane
You don't have to stay with him, if you wanna
You can always breakaway
I have arms and they're longing to hold you
If you'd only breakaway

Breakaway! I'm telling you
Breakaway! He's not for you

You were searching for your piece of heaven
You went out on a limb
All you got in return was depression
Won't you try it again
You don't have to stay with him, if you wanna
You can always breakaway
I have arms and they're longing to hold you
If you'd only breakaway

Breakaway! I'm telling you
Breakaway! He's not for you

You don't have to stay with him, if you wanna
You can always breakaway
I have arms and they're longing to hold you
If you'd only breakaway

Breakaway! I'm telling you
Breakaway! He's not for you

YOU MAKE THE HEAT

My message isn't difficult to comprehend
Our world is a troubled place in which to live
It's easy to be frightened
But life is so much easier since you walked in
It's a cold world
It's a cold place
But when you touch me

Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
You make the
Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
You make the
Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
That's burning me

The TV brings its violence into my room
It sells itself with pictures of impending doom
It's easy to be frightened
So maybe you should listen when I'm telling you
It's a cold world
It's a cold place
But when you touch me

Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
You make the
Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
You make the
Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
That's burning me

I don't want nobody but you
I don't need nobody
I don't trust nobody but you

My message isn't difficult to understand
Our world isn't in the proper hands
It's easy to be frightened
But life is so much easier since you're at hand
It's a cold world
It's a cold place
But when you touch me

Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
You make the
Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
You make the
Heat! Heat! (You make the heat)
That's burning me

MERRY-GO-ROUND

First she's up then she's down
Can't decide merry-go-round
First she's in then she's out
Can't get off merry-go-round

Monday she's not at school
Breaking all the rules
Tuesday big test today
Better stimulate

First she's up then she's down
Can't decide merry-go-round
First she's in then she's out
Can't get off merry-go-round

Friday with the boys again
She's making friends
Sunday she's gonna play it straight
Then a snowstorm came
First she's up then she's down
Can't decide merry-go-round
First she's in then she's out
Can't get off merry-go-round

She's flying high
Nothing can touch her
All of her problems are drifting away
When she returns
She faces depression
Look at her life and it's ticking away

First she's up then she's done
Can't decide merry-go-round
First she's in then she's out
Can't get off merry-go-round

CHINATOWN (Henderson, Temple, Famous)

Time has come for secret missions
A rendezvous a destination
Outside town her man awaits her
Young love fights the chains of
Observation

They'll be safe living in Chinatown
Building their world in Chinatown

Seeking aid from a detective
Their parents wait for information
Don't they know escape is easy
In this world of fascination

They'll be living safe in Chinatown
Building their world in Chinatown
You better watch out for the devil in Chinatown
Building their world in Chinatown

Trouble tonight devil moon in Chinatown
Building their world in Chinatown

DOMINO

If you thought of me (If you thought of me)
In a different light (From others)
I would be a different man
If I had my way (If I had my way)
You would have insight (Into me)
You would see a different man

No! I'm not a domino

If there was just a second (Just one second)
That I saw respect (In your eyes)
Would start a whole new way of thinking
I only need two things (Two things in life)
Something real (Something extra)
I thought that you could be that something

No! I'm not a domino
So I push you away
