My hands are shaking
Don't let my heart keep breaking
'Cause I need your love
I want your love
Say you're in love

I wasn't smart I wasn't wise
And now I'm by myself with tears in my eyes
I made my life a life of regret
I should have never played hard to get

I hear the music
Hold me tight yeah
I hear the music
Hold me tight now baby

Monday, I saw the picture shows
Tuesday, you know anything goes
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, too
I'd party and twist the whole week through

Gonna find her
Gonna find her
Gonna find her
Gonna find her

Now believe me when I tell you
I think you're fine
I'd like to love you
But darling I'm imprisoned

Well I know that you don't want me any longer baby
But my love for you keeps going stronger baby
Even though you're gone
I can't keep from hangin' on

They say there's always magic in the air

Like a leaf falls from a branch
Like a rock slide avalanche
Like a rain on a stormy day
I never thought I'd fall this way

Deep down inside he loves me
Though he may run around
Deep down inside he loves me
Someday he'll settle down

So different and so new
Was like any other
Until I kissed you

Let yourself fall in love with me
I'm not like that other guy
I'll never make you cry
I'll be as true as can be
You'll see

Where can love be
I need you so much
All I did was talk, talk about you
Hear your name and I start to cry
There's just no gettin' over you
Oh no

Maybe you will break my heart
Or maybe you'll be true
No matter what the future brings
I've got to see it through

And Mr. Green
He's so serene
He's got a T.V. in every room

Lullaby and good night
In your dreams I'll hold you tight
Lullaby and good night
Till the dawn's early light

In the eyes of the crowd
I'm another poor Joe on the street
Can't get on my feet

Don't you be no square
If you can't find a partner
Use a wooden chair

I'll tell about the night we met
And how my heart can't forget
The way you smiled at me

I could smell her sweet perfume
She smiled at me
My heart went boom
Then everybody in the room

Romeo and Juliet on Halloween

I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture?

Every time you kiss me I'm still not certain that you love me
Every time you hold me I'm still not certain that you care
Though you keep on saying you really, really, really love me
Do you say the same words to someone else when I'm not there

To make all my big dreams come true
I'm gonna find it girl
If it can be found
Before I bring you

I don't know how I got the nerve to walk out
If I shout remember I feel free
Now I can look at myself and be proud
I'm laughing out loud


I love you when you're happy
I love you when you're blue
I love you when you're mad at me
So how can I get tired of you?

You think you're gonna take his love away from me
Just because you dance the way you do
Don't you see he hasn't even looked your way
So you can try until the night is through
But baby he ain't going home with you
