My dear now look at what you've done Were you only thinking of number one You never stop to consider numbers two and three You never stop to consider your mother and me Now in a few days You'll be on a plane flying miles away from me You're stationed overseas And now that you've signed the dotted line Is it really too late to change your mind You should really think it over if it's not too late You should really think it over for your own sake Your mother's a mess But she'll get it together, now do what's best for you And maybe this country of ours too We always knew you'd leave But we never thought the day would come so soon It's so hard to believe That the day has come to live on without you And we shouldn't ever have to

Would you love me again if I gave it all away If I told you how I felt about the way you play You were crazy 'bout me, now you swear that it's through And that you don't love me, but I still love you Yeah she needs it Well she needs you to need her the way that she wants to be needed A while ago you used to call me nightly on the phone You were always telling me that we should spend some time alone B-b-baby you got bad to the bone Now you don't return my calls, I haven't seen you in a while And you're working your way up on someone else's speed dial You probably tell him all the things you told me Playing hearts like cards - baby you're the queen If I turn my back now I can walk away I'd never look back with nothing left to say Yeah she needs it Well she needs you to need her the way that she wants to be needed Well you never were a gambler and I know you hate to lose So you'll probably want me back as soon as you get the news That even if you want me now, there's no use Bye bye baby goodbye

I poured resolve in a bottle and drank it up I saw no need for a cup When I got to the bottom I grinned at the very last drop And it told me to wait 'til the minute hand makes it around Turn it over and upside down 'Til the time reads the same as it did when you decided to let me down Sunshine... I scaled you down to a map that's not to size We plot the lows and the highs 'Til the destination reaches us before we arrive And we exit to five, four, three, two Wonder if we're minding the cues Sunshine...

I bet you wish now You'd given yourself twenty extra minutes Now you wallow in the regrets and stare at the floor Wishing life had more of you doing less You're not sure what it's all for But stop a while Along comes a smile Oh what a system You can't beat them, get up and go to work Give in like a jerk, give in to get out You're not sure what it's all for But stop a while Along comes a smile
7.
There's no one else like you It's true It's really, really, really, really true My heart belongs to only you Because you love me the way you do We'll be sleeping in and traveling I can't dream a dream a dream and not dream you It's true It's really, really, really, really true I look forward to life where there is you What a thing to say, but truly my dear I do We'll buy groceries and have bite to eat Oh, why live for today, when you can live forever Many things do come and go but love is for tomorrow I can't think a thought that is not you It's true It's really, really, really, really true That is not a thought to misconstrue Put plainly, all I'll ever want is you We'll be sleeping in and traveling Oh, why live for today, when you can live forever Many things do come and go but love is for tomorrow Line your dreams up in a row and follow them so far, oh Many things do come and go but love is for tomorrow

I keep trying hard to leave But you keep pulling at my sleeve And now I know why Sun did dance and birds did sing 'Cause leaving you was the greatest thing And now you know too

I see a big fat star in the sky It's got our name written along the side It seems like things are looking up I guess it helps when nothing's ever good enough We built a house on a bad foundation Now it collapsed into new motivation Well here it is We'll let it all hang out We're getting warmer It's getting hotter Now take me to the sun We're getting louder We're getting closer We're ready for the sun Rain, rain, go away Come back another day Rain, rain, go away Don't come back I see a big fat star in the sky It's got our name written along the side It seems like things are looking up I guess it helps when nothing's ever good enough You give it time, it'll give you no guarantees You give it love, it'll give you false hopes and dreams Now give it wings, and it'll get you around We're getting warmer It's getting hotter Now take me to the sun
10.
You were a man that had it all Now you've thrown it all away You let a little of the inside out Something we weren't ready to see Pick it up and don't drop it Hurry up and don't let us down 'Cause if you can bait it, we will bite it Or at least for now You saved a dime, spent a dollar But you'll pay for it all eventually Collected interest on your interest In taking it personally You took a little too much of Other people's advice but you claimed it was free Eventually you let a little of the inside out Something we weren't ready to see Put your hands in your pockets Hang your head and leave this town 'Cause you've given the reason your bait's out of season Mr. Green, don't turn your back around You sailed away on a different ship You taught yourself to run You never learned to hide Now if you slip You won't be hard to find
