Have Mercy

I didn’t know
What I had done
So bright was the sun
It blinded me
Invited me in
And I was hypnotized
Mesmerized
In its gaze
‘Til I was drowning in my ecstasy

Have mercy on me

When the sun is gone
In the dead of night
And I have no strength left to fight
I’m sorry
Our story is done
I stand here paralyzed
Compromised
Full of shame
And so I sing this guilty rhapsody

Have mercy on me

And I will never be so far gone
I will admit when I am wrong
And for my sins I will atone
Because the blame is mine alone

Have mercy on me

[Lyrics]


Killer

Was it the way you walked
Or maybe the way you looked
Don't know what the bait was baby
But you know you had me hooked
Now I think about you
Can't get you off my mind
Don't know what it was about baby
But you must be one-of-a-kind

You're a killer, uh-huh (x3)
And you're too damn hard to find

I wish I knew your voice
I wish I knew your name
I know I didn't have the time
But it hurt me all the same
I know your eyes were on me
I felt you look my way
I know we both felt something baby
But I didn't know what to say

You were a killer, uh-huh (x3)
When I saw you that fine day

So help me
Think I'm drowning in your eyes
Woah help me
And it comes as no surprise
Woah help me
Cause there's nothing I can say
Nothing I can do
To get through to you

I hate regrets
And I hate remorse
I hate to admit it baby
But you know you are the source
Gotta get you off my mind
Gotta lock my heart up tight
Gotta stop thinkin' about you now
Before you haunt my dreams at night

You're a killer, uh-huh (x3)
But it's time to set things right

[Lyrics]


Still Waiting

As the moon grows weary of watching you walk the fence
There is one thing I should know to make this all makes sense
As the night grows longer, do you know, do you care
Do you see me standing here just trying not to stare

Cause I’m still waiting out here in the cold
Still waiting for someone to hold
And I’m so blinded I can’t see
Is it her or is it me

When we are together the sun is out, the sky is blue
Nothing matters much to me as long as I’m with you
When I see you smiling, when you look at me that way
You just make me crazy, not knowing what to say

Cause I’m still waiting out here in the cold
Still waiting for someone to hold
And I’m so blinded I can’t see
Is it her or is it me

I was blind, but now I see, some things weren’t meant to be
I guess I always thought that we would fit each other perfectly

And I’m still waiting out here in the cold
Still waiting for someone to hold
And I was blind but now I see
I’ve just got to let it be
Some things weren’t meant to be

[Lyrics]


There Must Be Disco

He's a good boy?
Does his job?
Pays his taxes on time
?Loves his mama?
Treats her right?
Sleeps well when he lays down his head at night
??
PRE-CHORUS:
Works so hard all week?
To barely make ends meet
?We all need a way to release??

CHORUS:
Sometimes when Friday comes?
There must be drinking
?There must be disco

She's a good girl?
Goes to school?
Does her homework on time?
Loves her boyfriend?
Treats him right
?Gives him love when he lays down with her at night

??PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS?

Please please won't you come out tonight
?Please please be cosmopolite

CHORUS
Sometimes you gotta know when to go with the flow
Just get down and disco

[Lyrics]


Tip Of My Tongue

You’re on the tip of my tongue
Gonna let you linger
Cause I don’t wanna forget
But I can’t quite remember
Your taste, your touch
Your face when you blush
Is still a mystery to me

I’m in the palm of your hand
I’m in the warmth of your smile
But the spell only lasts for awhile
And then you’re gone
But you’re still on the tip of my tongue

I take a sip and I’m done
I sense that I’m in danger
Cause I don’t wanna regret
And you’re still a stranger
Your taste, your touch
Your face when you blush
Is still a mystery to me

I’m in the palm of your hand
I’m in the warmth of your smile
But the spell only lasts for awhile
And then you’re gone
But you’re still on the tip of my tongue

You’re right there
But not quite there
You’re right there
But I can’t put my finger on you

[Lyrics]
