twirl lyrics

Twirl
It's the same tune
To a new song
Couldn't read the words they spelled wrong
And the solo always goes too long
It's the same game
With new rules
You're just another shark in the gene pool
I'm just a castaway on a ship of fools
But the earth will keep on spinning
As long as I keep giving it a whirl
So I spin it again
Again and again
I'm on the first page and I know how it ends
WIth nothing to prove and nothing but time on my side to spend
So how could I possible lose
In the same room
With a new face
Still I'm all alone in a rat race
Am I the only one here from outer space
But the earth will keep on spinning
As long as I keep giving it a whirl
So I spin it again
Again and again
I'm on the first page and I know how it ends
WIth nothing to prove and nothing but time on my side to spend
So how could I possible lose
How could I possible do this to me...again
But the earth will keep on spinning
As long as I keep giving it a whirl
So I spin it again
Again and again
I'm on the first page and I know how it ends
WIth nothing to prove and nothing but time on my side to spend
Ohh
I'll spin it again
Again and again
I'm on the first page and I know how it ends
WIth nothing to prove and nothing but time on my side to spend
So how could I possible lose

Back Pocket
I wanna rope me a star
Swing up to where you are
And bring you back down tonight
Lately you're in outer space
You wear a stranger's face
If you'd just turn around
And open your eyes
What you see
Is all I got
It's all that you need
I'm in your back pocket
Wrapped around your finger
Just look what you've done
To this rock and roll singer
And I won't let you go too high away
If it were up to me
I would swallow the key 
That's locking us in tonight
And I would step on the string
That's tied to all things
Up up and away
And out of my reach
If I could just away
I won't wear you down
I promise you this
I'm in your back pocket
Wrapped around your finger
Just look what you've done
To this rock and roll singer
And I won't let you go too high away
What you see
Is all I got
It's all that you need
I'm in your back pocket
Wrapped around your finger
Just look what you've done
To this rock and roll singer
And I won't let you go too high away...

Pretty Pictures
I turn the TV on today
Nothing has changed
But I'm not the same
I just had to close my eyes
Can't criticize what a surprise
I just wanna feel secure
Be reassured everything I feel is true
It took a minute but I found out
What coming up is all about
One day you feel so overprotected
The real world isn't what you expected
It to be so kind
Like the pretty pictures in your mind
Your world is out of hand 
But I'm in control of mine
Don't wanna watch the evening news
Reciting lines 'bout money and crime
Don't wanna read the magazines
Selling the hype the size I should be 
I make another mix CD
And blast the sound try to drown it all out
It took a minute but I found out
What coming up is all about
One day you feel so overprotected
The real world isn't what you expected
It to be so kind
Like the pretty pictures in your mind
Your world is out of hand 
But I'm in control of mine
I wanna wake up in a world 
That doesn't take so much 
And ohh could I be so bold to ask
That you don't take us all to task
I just wanna feel secure 
Be reassured everything I feel is true
It took a minute but I found out
What coming up is all about
One day you feel so overprotected
The real world isn't what you expected
It to be so kind
Like the pretty pictures in your mind
Your world is out of hand 
But I'm in control of mine
