I'll never see Wendy again She's moving away to a new school Spring has begun But it feels like the end I'll never see Wendy again Standing there all dressed in black She was vision a goddess And I was condemned I could get a message to her through her sister But what good would it do We don't even live in the same town Man who's fooling who I'll never see Wendy again Not like tonight I'll never see Wendy again It will never happen I'll never see Wendy again I'll never see Wendy again Her eyes dancing in the moonlight It's enough to make this old heart Want to mend I'll never see Wendy again But she's the kind of girl you don't forget And when I close my eyes I'm in heaven again I could call her up and tell her that I love her But what good would that do We don't even live in the same town Man who's fooling who I'll never see Wendy again Not like tonight I'll never see Wendy again It will never happen I'll never see Wendy again

Past Lives 03:46
I close my eyes Your face appears before me Dancing like a thousand stars in the sky So I open the windows of the world And watch as you walk by The spirit moves In strange wondrous ways I can't begin to explain how I knew However unpredictable it seems It would lead me to you I feel like I've known you before And I think I need to know you again I've got to get you back in my life 'Cause who knows how why or when This will happen again Tears fill my eyes Your beauty has assaulted me Pinned me to this cross on which I lie And with the weight of the world bearing down I watch you walk by The sun goes down Surrounded once again I am haunted by a ghost that won't lie down So I walk through the doorway of my soul And there you are found I feel like I've known you before And I think I need to know you again I've got to get you back in my life 'Cause who knows how why or when This will happen again

I'm living in a Wendy world Where everything and nothing's new Diamonds and gold, pearls like snow Take a back seat to her I'm living in a Wendy world And I don't know if it's wrong or right I can't eat, I can't sleep I can't stop thinking of her If I could fly I'd fly away with her Out of this world And into the land of forever and ever I'm living in a Wendy world Just me and my Wendy girl She's so fine I've got to make her mine I'm living in a Wendy world I'm living in a Wendy world Where everything starts to blur Day and night, black and white I just can't stop thinking of her I'm living in a Wendy world I've got no other place to go It's like pop said you've got to use your head But I lost it to this Wendy girl If I could fly I'd fly away with her Out of this world And into the land of forever and ever I'm living in a Wendy world Just me and my Wendy girl She's so fine I've got to make her mine I'm living in a Wendy world I'm living in a Wendy world Where everything is upside down I gotta hang ten here she comes again I'm crazy for this Wendy girl

There's trouble at home It's not the kind you want to tell somebody about There's trouble at home You know the kind you like to keep real quiet about She hasn't said it in so many words But I can read it between the lines And it says Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home There's trouble at home I wish that there was something I could do or say There's trouble at home But it's her own private nightmare and that's where it stays It doesn't matter how far she can run She's gonna take it with her when she goes And it says Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home I think it's time to let the cat out of the bag I think it's time to brake this chain of violence There's trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home There's trouble at home I think we know what I'm talking about There's trouble at home This kind of thing really tears my insides out I can't understand how someone could do such a thing I can't believe it and my heart's screaming for you There's trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home Trouble at home Trouble There's trouble at home

V.W. Girl 03:38
My girl Wendy She bought her sister's car for school But it was falling apart She tried to fix it up But she ran out of luck Just before it was time to go And she's on her way But her car is here to stay I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl And I hope she loves me She reupholstered Both the front seats and the back And then she painted it black And with the last of her dough A new engine went in And she's all ready to go But then the alternator failed Man and she just had to bail I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl And I hope she loves me Now it sits at home alone I know it misses her as much as I do It knows one day she will return And then they'll go driving Off into the wild I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl And I hope she loves me I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl I love a Volkswagen girl And I hope she loves me Loves me I hope she loves me

There is a dark side to love It's what I've always been afraid of All the pain heartache and misery It always brings me to my knees You say that love is so blind You tell me love makes no rules Well I concede I know that you're right But these tears I cry are for you There is an ocean of love There is a river of pain I've got to lay down my fears And let them wash over me There is an empty side to life And it cuts as sharp as any knife These bloody scars that you see Are all that love's left of me I know the distance is great I know the timing's all wrong But I've already made one mistake And what's left when love has gone There is an ocean of love There is a river of pain I've got to lay down my fears And let them wash over me The sky is overcast and black My heart has forgotten how to act All these nights in this lonely room I think of nothing but you You tell me I should be strong You say it's time to let go But what about you you're so wrapped up tight And me I'm left out in the cold There is an ocean of love There is a river of pain I've got to lay down my fears And let them wash over me There is an ocean of love There is a river of pain I've got to lay down my fears And let them wash over me And let them wash over me

Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you She likes to wear black just like you do And if he ever met you he would fall for you too Yes Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you He didn't introduce her I never got her name I know it wasn't Ella or Heather But that's okay 'cause what's in a name like Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you She has the same kind of smile that you do I wonder if he feels the same way I do Yes Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you No frills no bells no whistles Just love plain and simple Heartache and a lonely feeling It's you that I'm missing Anton's new girlfriend Anton's new girlfriend Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you She wears her hair the same way that you do It's a trick of light but when I see her it's you Yes Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you Two hearts beat with passion Young love satisfaction Tears on an empty pillow Old soul cries the willow Anton's new girlfriend Anton's new girlfriend Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you Anton's new girlfriend Anton's new girlfriend Anton's new girlfriend reminds me of you

Guess who called last night Just when I finally thought it was over Just when I thought love was out of sight Guess who called last night Telling me life is a gamble Telling me her love lights are burning bright Now don't get me wrong I just go on from day to day But I've been waiting for a chance like this Waiting for someone to say Guess who called last night Guess who called last night Guess who called last night Wishing we could start all over Wishing we could be together tonight Guess who called last night Telling me that love is forever Telling me that everything will be all right Now don't get me wrong I can't pretend I'm not afraid I've been waiting for a chance like this Waiting for someone to say Guess who called last night Guess who called last night Guess who called last night Guess who called last night

The girl next door is leaving town She's got a one way ticket and man I'm down I don't know what I'm going to do without her I don't know what these tears a falling for She said she won't be coming back Well I can understand but I don't like the fact I guess I'm over come by grief But I finally recognize my need I don't want her to go I don't want her to leave Not without me I don't want her to go I don't want her to leave Please don't leave me Then all of a sudden I faced the truth That this girl reminds me of you And I just stood frozen in my tracks I couldn't move I couldn't react I didn't want you to go I didn't want you to leave Not without me I never wanted you to go I never wanted you to leave Please don't leave me
