After The Glitter Fades

Well I never thought I'd make it
Here in Hollywood
I never thought I'd ever
Want to stay
What I seem to touch these days
Has turned to gold
What I seem to want
Well you know I'll find a way

For me it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one
Fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It's alright
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades

The loneliness of a one night stand
Is hard to take
We all chase something
And maybe this is a dream
The timeless face of a rock and roll
Woman... while her heart breaks
Oh you know... the dream keeps coming
Even when you forget to feel

For me it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It's alright
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades

For me it's the only life
That I've ever known
And love is only one fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It's alright
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh you know the feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh the feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Edge Of Seventeen

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Whoo whoo whoo.
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo

And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, baby
Nothin' else mattered

He was no more. than a baby then
Well he seemed broken hearted
Something within him
But the moment that I first laid
Eyes on him all alone
On the edge of seventeen

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooo baby ooo said ooo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo

I went today maybe I will go again
Tomorrow
And the music there it was hauntingly
Familiar
And I see you doing
What I try to do for me
With the words from a poet
And the voice from a choir
And a melody nothing else mattered

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
ooo baby ooo said ooo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo

The clouds never expect it
When it rains
But the sea changes colors
But the sea
Does not change
And so with the slow graceful flow
Of age
I went forth with an age old
Desire to please
On the edge of seventeen

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo

Well then suddenly
There was no one left standing
In the hall yeah yeah
In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
Oh I went searchin' for an answer
Up the stairs and down the hall
Not to find an answer
Just to hear the call
Of a nightbird singing
Come away come away

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo

Well I hear you in the morning
And I hear you
At nightfall
Sometime to be near you
Is to be unable to hear you
My love
I'm a few years older than you

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooo baby ooo said ooo
If Anyone Falls

I hear a voice in the room next to mine
Feels good sounds good
Closes the door from behind
And another voice comes thru the door

I am dealing with a man
When away from me stays deep inside my heart
And he says if anyone falls in love
It will be one of us

If anyone falls in love
Somewhere in the twilight dreamtime
Somewhere in the back of your mind
If anyone falls

And I heard someone say
As my eyes turned away
He said I have loved many women
I have many times run away

Ooh I have never known the words
Well I have tried to be true
Well I have never known what to say
How to say seen anything today
Never seen anything like you

If anyone falls in love
Somewhere in the twilight dreamtime
Somewhere in the back of your mind
If anyone falls

So I'm never gonna see you
Never gonna see you deep inside my heart
Oh I see your shadow against
Shadow against shadow against the wall
Baby I see your shadow against the wall
Leather And Lace

Is love so fragile
And the heart so hollow
Shatter with words
Impossible to follow
You're saying I'm fragile I try not to be
I search only for something I can't see

I have my own life and I am stronger
Than you know
But I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won't be walking out the door
Still I carry this feeling
When you walked into my house
That you won't be walking out the door

Lovers forever face to face
My city or mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace

You in the moonlight
With your sleepy eyes
Could you ever love a man like me
And you were right
When I walked into your house
I knew I'd never want to leave
Sometimes I'm a strong man
Sometimes cold and scared
And sometimes I cry
But that time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I'd get by
First time I saw you
I knew with you to light my nights
Somehow I would get by

Lovers forever face to face
My city or mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you today
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace

Lovers forever face to face
My city or mountains
Stay with me stay
I need you to love me
I need you to stay
Give to me your leather
Take from me my lace
Take from me my lace
Take from me my lace
Rooms On Fire

Somewhere out in the back of your mind
Comes your real life and the life that you know
It seems like it was the creation of some of those same old things
It seemed to be the only thing left out in the light
She had trusted many
But been unfamiliar with
Almost everyone but you

Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire
Everytime that you walk in the room
Well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself
I have known this much longer than I've known you

She had trusted many
And then there would be someone who would enter into her presence
That she could sense for miles
She dreamed of her wanton luxury
And she laughed and she cried and she tried to taunt him
And he hated to be separated
From that picture No

Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire
Everytime that you walk in the room
Ooh, well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself
Well I have known this much longer than I've known you

Long nets of white cloud my memory
Long nets of white cloud my memory
Ooh there is magic all around you
Everytime you walk in the room

Well maybe I'm just thinking that the rooms are all on fire
Everytime that you walk in the room
Well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself
Well I have known this much longer than I've known you
Sometimes It's A Bitch

Well I've run thru rainbows and castles of candy
And I've cried a river of tears from the pain
I try to dance with what life has to hand me
My partner's been pleasure, my partner's been pain

There are days when I swear I could fly like an eagle
and dark, desperate hours that nobody sees
My arms stretched triumphant on top of the mountain
My head in my hands, down on my knees

Chorus:
Sometimes it's a bitch, sometimes it's a breeze
Sometimes love's blind and sometimes it sees
Sometimes it's roses, but sometimes it's weeds
Sometimes it's a bitch but sometimes it's a breeze

I've reached in darkness and come out with treasures
I've laid down with love and I've woke up with lies
What's it all worth? - Only the heart can measure
It's not what's in the mirror, but what's left inside

you've gotta take it as it comes
Sometimes it don't come easy

Well I've run thru rainbows and castles of candy
I've cried a river of tears from the pain
I've tried to dance with what life had to hand me
And if I could, I'd do it all over again

Sometimes it's a bitch, sometimes it's a breeze
Sometimes the picture just ain't what it seems
you get what you want but it's not what you need
Sometimes it's a bitch and sometimes it's a breeze

Sometimes it's a breeze
Stand Back

No one looked as I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to him again and again
First he took my heart then he ran

No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First he took my hand take me home

Stand back stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright it's alright
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
I would cry

Do not turn away my friend
Like a willow I can bend
No man calls my name
No man came

So I walked on down away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than you could do
One man did not call
He asked me for my love
And that was all

Stand back stand back
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It's alright it's alright
To be standing in a line
Standing in a line
Standing in a line

So I walked on down the line
Away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than I could do
One man did not call
Well he asked me for my love
That was all
Stop Draggin' My Heart Around With Tom Petty

Baby you'll come knocking on my front door
Same old line you used to use before
I said ya well what am I supposed to do
I didn't know what I was getting into

So you've had a little trouble in town
Now you're keeping some demons down
Stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my heart around

It's hard to think about what you've wanted
It's hard to think about what you've lost
This doesn't have to be the big get even
This doesn't have to be anything at all

I know you really want to tell me good-bye
I know you really want to be your own girl

Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my heart around

There's people running 'round loose in the world
Ain't got nothin' better to do
Than make a meal of some bright eyed kid
You need someone looking after you

I know you really want to tell me goodbye
I know you really want to be your own girl

Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my
Stop draggin' my heart around

Stop draggin' my heart around
Talk To Me

I can see we're thinkin' bout the same things
And I can see your expression when the phone rings
We both know there's something happening here
Well, there's no sense in dancing round the subject
A wound gets worse when it's treated with neglect
Don't turn around there's nothing here to fear

You can talk to me
Talk to me
You can talk to me
You can set your secrets free, baby

Dusty words lying under carpets
Seldom heard well must you keep your secrets
Locked inside hidden safe from view
Well, is it all that hard
Is it all that tough
Well, I've shown you all my cards now isn't that enough
You can hide your hurt
But, there's something you can do

You can talk to me
Talk to me talk to me
I can set your secrets free, baby
La, la, la, la

Though we lay face to face and cheek to cheek
Our voices stray from the common ground where they
could meet
The walls run high, to veil a swelling tear
Oh, let the walls burn down, set your secrets free
You can break their bounds, cause you're safe with me
You can lose your doubt, cause you'll find no danger
not here

You can talk to me
Talk to me
You can talk to me
You can set your secrets free, baby

Oh, I can see you running I can see you running
I can see you running all the way back home
I can see your expression when the phone rings
And I can see that you're thinkin' bout the same things
Is it all that hard
Is it all that tough
Well, you've taken all there is now baby
Isn't that enough
Well, I can see you runnin' I can see you runnin'
All the way back
