Yeah On the outside looking in Looking back at where I’ve been Trapped inside a world so cruel I don’t want to be nobody’s fool The devil on my sleeve Is trying to make me believe Led into the dark you tried to tempt me Not this time Put me under your spell and tried to use me Not this time I’m torn apart at the seams I’m being pulled down in between Living life by the golden rule Caught in a rat race run by fools The angel on my sleeve Is trying to make me see Led into the dark you tried to tempt me Not this time Put me under your spell and tried to use me Not this time Blinded by the light You tried to guide me Put me under your spell Yeah Not this time Led into the dark you tried to tempt me Not this time Put me under your spell and tried to use me Not this time

When I was born, they said I couldn’t be tamed I grew up kickin’ ass and taking names I was a boy, became a man Playing guitar in a rock and roll band I got my bass, I got my drums Now it’s time to start having some fun Let’s jam all night, ‘till the morning light We ain’t gonna stop tonight Rock and roll It’s all I know Nine to five is not for me Rock and roll It’s the way to go Stand up and be free I’m livin’ fast, I’m livin’ free I’ll do my sleeping when I am dead Crank it up, Let’s hit the top We ain’t ever gonna stop Rock and roll It’s all I know Nine to five is not for me Rock and roll It’s the way to go Stand up and be free Yeah yeah Oh yeah Rock and roll Ooh yeah Rock and roll It’s all I know Rock and roll It’s for you, It’s for me yeah Ooh yeah Rock and roll It’s all I know Nine to five is not for me Rock and roll It’s the way to go Stand up and be free Rock and roll It’s all I know Nine to five is not for me Rock and roll It’s the way to go Stand up and be free Stand up and be free

Lie to Me 03:24
I want you to lie to me Whisper something just for me Save the truth It’s not me for I want you to lie to me Tell me all the things I want to hear It doesn’t matter if it’s truth or fantasy Truth or fantasy Spare the pain of reality Cause all I want if for you to lie to me Lie to me I want you to lie to me Whisper something just for me Save the truth It’s not me for I want you to lie to me Say the words that I want to hear Blind me from this world’s insanity This insanity Let me believe all of this is real Cause all I want is for you to lie to me Lie to me I want you to lie to me Whisper something just for me Save the truth It’s not me for I want you to, I want you to I want you to lie to me Whisper something just for me Save the truth It’s not me for I want you to lie to me Whoa I want you to lie to me Whisper something just for me Save the truth It’s not me for I want you to lie to me Lie to me I want you to lie to me Whisper something just for me Save the truth It’s not me for I want you to lie to me Lie to me Lie to me Lie to me Lie to me

Once in a lifetime You find what you’re looking for Just like a feeling That you can’t ignore It feels right I know this time When I look at you I know one thing It must be true Oh, if you only knew It’s the way that you walk It’s the way that you talk It’s the way you smile at me It’s the way that you move It’s the way that you touch Girl you’ve got my heart You’ve got my heart by the strings By your side I wear my heart on my sleeve You stand real close But I feel so far away I want to say How I feel When I am with you Just one chance to be with you Oh, if you only knew It’s the way that you walk It’s the way that you talk It’s the way you smile at me It’s the way that you move It’s the way that you touch Girl you’ve got my heart You’ve got my heart by the strings It’s the way that you walk It’s the way that you talk It’s the way you smile at me It’s the way that you move It’s the way that you touch Girl you’ve got my heart It’s the way that you walk It’s the way that you talk It’s the way you smile at me It’s the way that you move It’s the way that you touch Girl you’ve got my heart You’ve got my heart by the strings
