Lyrics

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

 

we're gonna get in a van

and drive as fast as we can

playing night after night

tryin' to make us some fans

and when we get on a bus

they're gonna talk about us

let 'em in on my master plan

 

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

you wanna open for who?

they're gonna open for you

yeah they're gonna, you know you wanna

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll 

dreams come true

 

and when we get on a jet

we're never gonna forget

the little people

church and the steeple

and when we win our Grammy

we'll thank God

... and Miami

 

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

you wanna open for who?

they're gonna open for you

yeah they're gonna.. marry juana

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

 

and when we wind up in rehab

we'll ask ourselves what was so bad

about the life we had

before our 15 minutes came and went

 

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

they'll be lookin' at you

like a freak in a zoo

and everything that you knew

is gonna change

WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA

it's gonna change

all i wanna do is make your rock n roll dreams come true

Lyrics

i want to engage you

but i just don't know what to say

try to please you and plague you

and touch you in some kinda way

 

won't you do it again what you do to me

say it again what you said to me

i'm on life number 8 outta 9

and i'm runnin' out of time

but if you kill me again

you're dead to me

 

i want to enrage you 

and get you to feel what i feel

my emotions they draw me in caricature

but it's real. So real.

 

won't you do it again what you do to me

say it again what you said to me

i'm on life number 8 outta 9

and i'm runnin' out of time

but if you kill me again

you're dead to me

Lyrics

well i've seen you cry

a couple of times

but it never hurt as much as on the day you said goodbye

you didn't even try

to hold back the tide

'cause it's not the kind of thing the smart ones

dare to keep inside

and everybody knows it goes to show that we can mend

 

but if i can help it, if i can help it

it will be me you turn to when you need a friend

if i can help it, if i can help it

if i can help it you will never feel a pain like that again

 

your #1 fan

bowed out of the band

and it feels you got no wingman

and a mutiny on your hands

well i got a plan

to get back where we began

man up and drop the sins of cynicism

start to give a damn

not everybody sees between the trees and they can't bend

 

but if i can help it, if i can help it

it will be me you turn to when you need a friend

if i can help it, if i can help it

if i can help it you will never feel a pain like that again

 

and you will never have to go it all alone

and you will never face the fire on your own..

 

if i can help it you will never feel a pain like that again.

IKE

Lyrics

i wrote you a love song

no wait - it was an album

and these pieces of me

they're trapped like madmen in an asylum

you want me to read your mind

but i know it wanders all the time 

and it leaves me here so far behind

 

i have heard that history repeats itself

well bring it on

 

you just take the prize for 

my most glorious mistake

you are the promise i can never break

the bad luck that i can never shake

it comes as no surprise

it's all so much for you to take

i got so much love to give right now

i think i'm gonna break

 

i wrote you a love song

yeah there's more where that came from

it's a never-ending sunrise

on an infinite horizon

you tell me to speak my mind

but that gets me in trouble all the time

so i bite my tongue and i drink the wine

 

i have seen our history repeat itself

well bring it on

 

you just take the prize for 

my most glorious mistake

you are the promise i can never break

the big O that i can never fake

it comes as no surprise

it's all so much for me to take

i got so much love to give to you

i think i'm gonna break

 

don't tell me it's just better if i break

don't tell me it's just better if i break

don't tell me it's just better if i break away

 

i led multiple lives

with surrogate brides

and learned how to hide my feelings 

but i'm not gonna lie

it's pretty inside

i'll never deny my feelings

 

you just take the prize

you just take the prize

and once you realize 

i make your world spin so much faster

we'll all be lucky bastards

i'm your #1 disaster

you're my glorious mistake

IKE

Lyrics

i'm no stranger

i've been around this block 

with you a couple of times

i'm holding back the clock

'til you stop on my dime

my partner in crime now for so long

the thing i always knew about you

you're an old soul and i doubt you

will ever see me live another life without you

from now on

 

and i believe in incantation

 

just like that, just like that

c'mon baby just like that

sing it to me just like that

just like that

c'mon on baby

just like that, just like that

give it to me just like that

just like that, just like that

c'mon baby

 

i'm no stranger

than any other stranger

you meet in this town

and yeah it's common knowledge

that i've been around

honor-bound and keeping my deals

i got to show you my potential

cuz i'm mother fuckin' exponential

and i know that love is never wrong

when it's real

 

so put me in your league of nations

 

just like that, just like that

c'mon baby just like that

sing it to me just like that

just like that

c'mon on baby

just like that, just like that

give it to me just like that

just like that, just like that

c'mon baby

 

and just like that

we come right back

full circle then we're gone

just one more re-reincarnation

 

and anything you wanna know, it's all right

and anywhere you wanna go, it's all right..
