ONE TRACK MIND

I can think of nothing else When I wake up in the morning and I rub my eyes I can think of nothing else in my bed at night Burning up but also freezing There’s a feeling deep down here in my stomach Like a hundred million brilliant little butterflies Exploding in an orgy of outrageous color And this girl I’m seeing is the reason And I understand About injustices and all the inequality And I understand She wants to make this world a better place for everybody And when we go out And she’s sharing all this vital information with me The way that she smells God help me, I can think of nothing else So now I’m feeling like I’m really just an awful person As I stand here volunteering at the hospital I do and say the things to keep up the good guy appearance But I’m really wishing she would meet me in the closet I don’t want to make her feel like she’s In a relationship with nothing but a sex addict And I know that when we do it, she’s probably thinking He’s so into it, it’s like he’s never had it But in a way it’s true - it’s never been like this Not even close as far as I can tell Can I help it if this girl has got the sweetest kiss? So sexy, I can think of nothing else Let me tell you what happened I went to see my priest in the confessional I guess that what I shared was pretty questionable He started telling me this is how Satan fell And so apparently I’m going straight to hell Today she made me breakfast – it’s like I never eaten Don’t mean to sound sexist – she’s got ‘em all beaten I really wish I could but I can’t help myself She does it all so good, I can think of nothing else

I see you walking down the street in London Town You look good, you look good, you do Dancing to that sweet Parisian sound in a disco It’s so good, it’s so good, it’s so good If I only could I would… Love you every morning baby Twice this afternoon All throughout the evening honey You know it cannot come too soon I just can’t get enough it seems here in between the lines Baby you’re the stuff of dreams After a thousand times I’ll still be wanting you They should be lining up to cheer you in New York You’re so fine, you’re so fine, you are And signing up to hear you when you talk Ooh, how’d you get so smart babe? That intellect has got me wrecked If that ain’t enough, you crack me up too Besides the class and how fine that ass is Man I’m a goner for a girl in some glasses It’s so good, it’s so good, it’s so good and so deeply understood It’s so good, it’s so good, it’s so good – If I only could I would… Love you every morning baby Twice this afternoon All throughout the evening maybe This time we won’t come too soon I just can’t get enough it seems So tickled pink you’re mine Baby you’re the stuff and even when you’re 99 I’ll still be wanting you I’ll still be wanting you

Out to dinner on our second date Staring at the food upon your plate If I gaze too long into your eyes I might end up drowning hypnotized Can’t believe the first time you said yes And why again is anybody’s guess Trying so damn hard to keep my cool I can’t come off an infatuated fool But baby honestly, you’re a mystery to me How can someone be so gorgeous? You know your Yankees and your Rock and Roll Everything you say is from your soul Compassion, wit, intelligence and style Through the most intoxicating smile Baby honestly, you’re a mystery to me I mean how can someone be so gorgeous? I can’t figure it out Makes me want to shout Both inside and out, you’re gorgeous Now you might laugh and think that I’m insane But I would love to take you dancing in the rain Take the time to learn what no one knows Take all night just picking out your clothes I know I’ve never felt this way before I knew the moment you walked through that door The truth holding hands right now with you Is better than any sex I ever knew Baby honestly, you’re a miracle to me How can someone be so gorgeous? And if I have my way When we’re old and gray I’ll look at you and say, “Still gorgeous.”

Swoon when you walk into the room You could be my favorite tune I would hum you all day Swoon like I'm dreaming in a disco Never been to San Francisco But I would go if you say You make me feel like I just put on my new roller skates I'm rolling fine like 1979 You skate on by and it evaporates Swoon like I'm walking on the moon You must be my favorite tune You're so stuck in my head Swoon when I see you in the diner Never been to Carolina But I would go if you said You make me want to go and buy you A new dress and corsage You're standing there with all that sun in your hair Are you for real or is it just a mirage? Swoon when you walk into the room You could be my favorite tune I would hum you all day Swoon when I'm tripping on your Visco Never been to San Francisco But I would go if you say Baby I don't know how this goes It's like I'm dreaming in a disco Never been to San Francisco But I would go if you say I would go if you say

The bed so very nice here Our piece of paradise dear Sleep so deep, it’s oh so hard to leave There’s a job to do, though A lot depends on you So I make it my responsibility Let me be your alarm clock baby Let me be the thing that wakes you up Let me be your alarm clock baby I can hold the string that takes you up Right where you belong Love you good and strong Send you with a song into your day Let me be your alarm clock baby Baby alarm clock all the way The days are crazy busy By 10 each night you’re dizzy Here’s a little secret you can keep Give me 20 minutes I’ll make coffee when we’re finished You know you can’t afford to oversleep I know how hard it is to get up every morning When the sun ain’t even shining in your eyes We can take advantage of the new day dawning With something else guaranteed to rise

I like to see which way I’m goin’ When I’m goin’ all the way to heaven I get to see how good the wind is blowin’ With the sunlight creepin’ through the window Doin’ it in the daytime Doin’ it in the daytime Teacher says it’s playtime (There’s just something about the sunshine) And we’re doin’ it in the daytime Don’t get me wrong, I like the nighttime When it’s dark and we’ve got Marvin Singing “I Want You” while we’re snugglin’ But you know that 4pm can really be the right time Keep ‘em open, let me show you something Say hello to this man right here above you baby Don’t you know how much he really loves you baby? And even though you were so damn fine at 17 This is so the finest thing he’s ever seen Say hello to this man right here below you darlin’ You should know he’s so grateful to know you darlin’ And even though you were oh so fine at 17 This is so the finest place he’s ever been

By the pale light of the TV You lay right out beneath me It’s beyond my mind how sweet and kind (shapely and fine) A real loving woman can be When we met, you were a college girl You gave me a life and place in this world Now you’re a wife and a mother of two And I’m the lucky one who gets to get wit you I never dreamed so far along We’d still be having this much fun You no longer act like a college girl Oooh, but you still sure look like one By the glow now of the disco ball In a little club out by the mall On a Friday night you hold me tight I wipe away a tear from the joy of it all When we met, we danced to R.E.M. The Smiths and The Cure with the rest of them Songs so pure and a love so true And I’m the lucky one who got to dance with you I never dreamed so far along Still so much to say when the day is done You no longer talk like a college girl Oooh, but you still sure move like one

I need your hands to rub the tension away I need your mouth and every word that you say Deep in the night I wake up and whisper your name There could be lover upon lover but no other could ever be the same Only your body will do Only your body will do I need your tips so I can get in the groove I need your hips and all of the ways that they move The morning comes – I still can’t believe how it came There could be lover upon lover but no other could ever feel the same Only your body will do Only your body will do when I need it The way that you smell and the way that you feel When we’re moving together Millions of people and out of them all I would choose you forever and ever and ever And oh…only your body will do Only your body will do When I need it Only your body will do I need your legs ‘cause they keep me feeling so young I need your lips ‘cause they know the way to your tongue

I want to tell you baby You got that thing I like And I can see you baby Right up here on the mic I want to get with you woman I want to tell you baby You got that stuff I need And I can please you baby On the book, that’s guaranteed I want to get with you woman What’s it gonna take to make you mine? I never seen anything so fine If I gotta sign on the dotted line, let me sign Let me sign! Whatever it takes, I got it Whatever it takes, let me do it Whatever it takes, pretty girl Whatever it takes, takes, takes, takes, takes What’s it gonna take to make you mine? Your beauty in and out is bordering on divine Your company’s the kind I need to get behind Get behind!

It’s like a dream Usually I just end up in the way Of most things that I’d like to do or say But here with you In the deep blue of the candlelight A brief, perfect moment in time Everything’s right I can’t believe how blessed someone could be I can’t believe you’re actually lying here with me Giving yourself completely Showing me I’m worthy Of love as I have never known Forever yours and yours alone It’s like a dream Catch my breath and open my eyes See your face Hear your sighs The pleasure in your eyes The river rushing to the sea Together momentarily We get to glimpse eternity Pure and clean and burning free When I die this memory Will be the one inside of me The night we were together The night we were together The night we were together Touching souls Touching souls Touching souls
