Up All Night 02:38
Verse: I'm a wild child spinnin' round don't know what to do with myself Oh yeah I'm trouble bound runnin round going nowhere fast And I dont need to tell you where I've been And I don't even know where to begin Chorus: Don't want you to keep me up all night Hey baby I ain't got no alibi Verse: And now I'm hell bound outta town and I don't need nobodies help You say that I'm a mess outta step baby take a look at yourself
Verse: The kids ain't the same Sometimes I feel like I'm going insane We ain't got time to complain Now that everyone has changed Pre Chorus: And I ain't no hang around And I don't plan on settling down Cuz tonight, we're alright Chorus: We're all alright, all alright tonight We're all alright all alright tonight Verse: They always said, we're going out of our heads Mommy's trying hard to keep it together We ain't no good at making friends Dad's on his way to a permanent vacation Outro: We're on top and we ain't gunna stop
Verse: I was born free, you don't gotta take it from me I got no sympathy for all you puppets on tv And I'll tell you something, you got me thinking You're something you're not but that ship is sinking on down Burning out and fading away Chorus: Living your life just like a lottery Rolling the dice right in front of me Next thing you know you'll be comatose You're on a teenage overdose Teenage Overdose You're getting close To a Teenage Overdose Verse: You gotta turn it up, If you want my attention You better start me up, If you need some action I'm your main man, if you want some satisfaction This ones for the eagles flying free.
Verse: Out in the streets, you don't gotta take it from me Because you already lost your mind and you ran into me just in time Pre Chorus: Your fading out now I'll bring you back now I'll letcha know how Got everything you need come on baby let me set you free Chorus: I'll be your main man runnin' around Aim high for suicide baby No runnin' around Verse: Boulevard trash you ain't no queen Got glitter in your eyes your so obscene I'll make you so sweet, they'll want you so bad knocking on my door just to get you back Pre Chorus: Your fading out now I'll bring you back now I'll letcha know how So you in or you out what are you about
Verse: Shaking around, straight to the ground But it's a long way to the top Gunna find herself another one tonight or is she gunna stop Man she's looking pretty, heading to the city and you just had to fly Take it or leave it, you know you wanna give it a try Chorus: You were the tipsy gypsy, from my wildest dreams 21st Century rocket queen, with or without you I'm better off dead, coz I needed you like a hole in my head My head Verse: You got your friends in high places You've got angels with dirty faces All the same things from my latest mistakes Talk of the town, runnin' around And you look like your headed for a break down Get outta my mind with those hippy hippy shakes
Verse: It ain't easy to cut you loose I got a heart ache just thinking about it You're so hard headed and I don't get it I see you bleeding out real loud Pre Chorus: Just don't get it No you just don't get And I don't get it never would regret it again Chorus: Your an overdrive child, always runnin' wild Your an overdrive child never seen you smile Verse: No time for distractions Won't make no reaction to no I ain't pretending A lifetime of bad habits and I just want to shout it when the road comes to an end Pre Chorus: You still don't get it No you still don't get it And I don't get it never would regret it again

Rock ‘N Roll’s Anti Hero is like being hit with a glitter-filled pillow at a champagne slumber party and the mega-melodic hooks that power these glam pop songs are completely devoid of snarky intentions. Instead the mischievous come-ons these Bay Area boy scouts employ are of the heartthrob nature, and it won’t be long before every inch of their collective collar is covered in strawberry lipstick. ... more
