Why-y-y Can’t we ever keep our life the same I-I-I Just hang around and wait for things to change The waiting always brings me down Turns me round and round and round So let’s just dance We may never get another chance Let’s just dance We may never get another chance Please please please Make the new surprises go away I’m on my knees Can we make it through another day But rhythm never lets us down Push me round and round and round So let’s just dance We may never get another chance Let’s just dance We may never get another chance Oh no Oh no I-I-I Gotta keep the feeling pushing through But why-y-y Are they coming after me and you The wondering always brings me down Spins me round and round and round So let’s just dance We may never get another chance Let’s just dance We may never get another chance Oh no Oh no So let’s just dance

Farmer Girl 04:28
I’d seen enough there Seen enough to get through The morning I lived enough there I lived enough without you To know it My farmer girl Took me ’round the world My farmer girl oh-oh Took me ’round the world I’ve seen the highway I’ve seen the road from my yard I remember We left on Monday And Tuesday took me so far Forever My farmer girl Took me ’round the world My farmer girl oh-oh Took me ’round the world My farmer girl Took me ’round the world My farmer girl oh-oh Took me ’round the world I’d seen enough there Seen enough to get through The morning I lived enough there I lived enough without you To know it

Got your people hiding out In a social cul-de-sac It don’t matter if the world is on fire And the big blue sky Ain’t never comin’ back If we’re hangin’ on the word of a liar Got so many people come from all around the world Keep on movin’ just to get a little rest Everybody comin’, every boy and every girl We got everybody livin’ down west Gotta come on down Everybody livin' down west Got a lot of people screamin’ Gotta make a better place In the place that we’re already livin’ now There’s classism, fascism Every kind of badism Everything we never can allow Got so many people come from all around the world Keep on movin’ just to get a little rest Everybody comin’, every boy and every girl We got all God’s children down west Gotta come on down Everybody livin' down west

Your affection, your protection Comforting Sacrifice forever more and every day Looking out for villains, call a Meeting now Never be too safe for ones you love Then you set my world On fire You set my world On fire Always want the best for friends and Family Watch the neighborhood so carefully Find the danger out the window Double pane Supervising screens and planning play Then you set my world On fire You set my world On fire You set my world On fire You set my world On fire Filling all the spaces in the days and weeks and months forever Never gonna come, I see it now Taken by the hand and introduced to better worlds forever Never gonna come, I see it now Filling all the spaces in the days and weeks and months forever Never gonna come, I see it now Taken by the hand and introduced to better worlds forever Never gonna come, I see it now Then you set my world On fire You set my world On fire You set my world On fire You set my world On fire On fire On fire On fire

Angel Town 03:44
Late night cross town racing time Four o’clock bar, just to see you Put my life in the devil’s hands Ghost town streets I guarantee you Now we’re live in angel town Home town boy stopped runnin’ round Home town never gonna take me down Running the red lights Work days long and the nights were longer Time just flies when you’re having fun Late night show got the feelings building Hard on the gas for a morning run Now we’re live in angel town Home town boy stopped runnin’ round Home town never gonna take me down Running the red lights We’re all drunk on loneliness I saved my soul for a brown-eyed girl Put my life in an angel’s hand To drive me off to another world Now we’re live in angel town Home town boy stopped runnin’ round Home town never gonna take me down Running the red lights Running the red lights
