GLAD TO SEE YOU

I'm really glad you made it out. I was starting to have my doubts. It's good to see you once again. It's always nice to see an old friend. And I know it's been a while but I'm GLAD TO SEE YOU. A couple years, a thousand miles... Well, I'm GLAD TO SEE YOU. It's good to see you in real life in stead of memories or moving lights on a screen. I'm glad to see you still exist. You don't know how much you were missed. There's water underneath the bridge but I'm GLAD TO SEE YOU, A couple bottles in the fridge 'cause I'm GLAD TOO SEE YOU. "For Old Time's Sake," you say... For crying out loud! THESE are the Good 'Ol Days right here. "For Old Time's Sake?!" For crying out loud! These are the Good 'Ol Days right here. Right here. Right now.

The last blooms of the season are repressed the Winter's breath makes them nervous and it seems we dream together while I try to coax the night out of the sky. You have hypnotized me and I am only at your mercy, MOONGLOW, so lovely... Night is full of only dreamers... Your Magic will not work on me this time. I thought so when I was still young inside I never felt the Sun reflect upon you quite the way that I do now Now that you have hypnotized me and I am only at your mercy, MOONGLOW, so lovely...

Black clouds, rolling in like waves take over the sky The winds blowing trees around People all run inside because a storm is brewing and I don't know what I'm still doing here. Could have saved me years ago Could have saved me now. A cold wind slaps you in the face It's too late anyhow a storm is brewing and I don't know what I'm still doing here. Getting way too quiet now Think you've gone too far. It starts with just a crack before the whole thing falls apart A storm is brewing and I don't know what I'm still doing here.

Tourist 04:21
You don't remember me, do you? Don't lie to me. I can see right through you. I am just a tourist in your life. I am only a tourist in your life after all. Of course you wouldn't recognize me, would you? I never gave you anything but company. Why am I even talking to you when I am just a tourist in your life? I am only a tourist in your life after all. It's not too late to walk away. It's not too late to run. And I'm offended your not embarrassed. Must think I'm no one Maybe you're right. I am only a tourist in your life. You don't remember me, do you?

Well, Ive been here for many years Through the blood and shame and tears And I have felt the same and even worse. Wine & Women, Song-and-dancin' and anything I could get my hands on I knew I was to blame for my own curse When I fell off of the wagon into your arms I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms and now you want to put me back again. What are you about to do? After all you put me through just what are you about to do to me? And she said: "After all the time I gave you, just shut up and let me save you. I will tell you how it's going to be!" "Oh, but Honey, I fell off of the wagon into your arms..." I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms Now you refuse to pick me up again. What are you about to do? What is it you're trying to prove? And, tell me, who is it you want to prove it to? Because I was pleading and bleeding and begging and I did not have a leg to stand on when I dove off the wagon into you Yes I fell off of the wagon into your arms. I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms I fell OFF THE WAGON into your arms and now you want to put me back again. Now you refuse to pick me up again. And now you want to put me back and now you want to put me back and now you want to put me back again.

I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. I looked through the window, you were not alone. I tried to imagine it's not what it looks like. Opened the door and discovered I was right all along I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. The man I was, you thought you once knew, is gone. This could be prevented. I wish I was warned. But whose fault is that, anyway? Didn't have to end this way. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. I saw you last night through the eye of a storm. Your heartbeat was pounding, you clothes were all torn. And I am a hurricane, so unpredictable The only thing you can now count on is trouble. ... I saw you las night through the eye of a storm.

Let them storm right through the walls Let them come up through the floor Let them tear apart the room They cannot get you anymore. And you're sure to be a Saint. I'm sure to be at Pace. Fools can try to own the world, One day we all will be released. I can howl at the Moon. I can travel in my mind. I can see you in the Sun even when they take my eyes. They can be my living's end They can capture all my friends... I don't even know they will. You don't really know anything, do you?

Have your cake and eat it too Have a couple hours, see what we can do Nothing in the cupboard, nothing on the shelf Have a little butter with your bread as well HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well. I really didn't mean to be arriving late She exploded on me like a jailbreak. You only get one chance, as far as I can tell Have a little butter with your bread as well. HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well. "If Music be the food of Love, play on..." A man's gotta eat, even when you're gone. I'm not going to get cooking by myself Have a little butter with your bread as well. HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well. HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER HAVE A LITTLE BUTTER with your bread as well.

At my window, late at night Something isn't sitting right. What it could be, I suppose, Loneliness within me grows. I lost it all, but won the fight. Now I'm right but I'm alone - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - I know I'm right, but so alone - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - Stay with me. Make me wrong. I want to be wrong... - These eyes are so blue - If I could belong... - From looking at you too long. - Scuffling and shuffling and suffering... - Succotash! - Wandering and wondering what might have been... Want so bad not to feel so bad, Want so bad not to feel... When it is revealed that I'm right, but I'm alone - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - I know I'm right, but so alone - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - - Want to be wrong, MAKE ME WRONG - Come back to me. Prove me wrong. I want to be wrong... - These eyes are so blue - If I could belong... - From looking at you too long. - I want to be wrong... - These eyes are so blue - If I could belong... - From looking at you too long. -

Now that the party is over no one is around. We're sweeping up confetti and pulling streamers down. Wanted to go out with a bang, but you leave without a sound now that the MAGIC IS OVER. It's been seven years of tug-of-war, it's time we both let go. You won't be trying to change me. I won't hold you back anymore. It's time we put the light out, call it a night and close the door now that the MAGIC IS OVER. No more waiting and hoping. It's all out in the open. We need to take some time. And now that the Magic is over we can try it out as friends. Not answering to anyone, I can be myself again. What we had was beautiful, but this is where it ends now that the MAGIC IS OVER. What we had was beautiful, but this is where it ends now that the MAGIC IS OVER. Now the Magic is over.
