Doctor, Doctor! I need some medication Cos now I’m in a crazy situation And how I wish that you were mine And everything would be just fine Doctor, Doctor driving me insane Driving me insane Doctor, Doctor! I don’t know what you do to me I’m feeling like I need a lobotomy And how I wish that you were here But I’m just crying in my beer Doctor, Doctor driving me insane Driving me insane Another night with you And I don’t think that I’ll survive Cos I just can’t get you out of my brain Now I wanna go But I just can’t say no You stole my heart come back to me again Doctor, Doctor! I need some medication My brain is aching from the aggravation And now I know that you are near And I’ve got nothing left to fear Doctor, Doctor let’s do it again Let’s do it again Let’s do it again Let’s do it again oh-whoa-oh
She don’t call me baby anymore And I don’t call her my girl But these things take time I’m always on her mind And she is on mine And I don’t call her sweetheart anymore And she don’t call me her man But the path we choose Is destined to lose And now we’re through again I don’t wanna be the one to choke The rope’s so tight and the line’s so thin We both know what we want But we just can’t win The game’s not set and the match not won I’m running on the wrong side of luck I was smoking weed in a daydream Hanging with my band On the day that you called me It was your name flashing up Thought I didn’t give a fuck Now I know I’m not over you Cos I’ve been knocking beers back Smashed since that day I’ve been sleeping with some girls But girl it ain’t the same Cos when we touch Our love flows down through the river To the river’s end I don’t call her number anymore She’s not the one for me But the times we spent I’ll never forget Just wasn’t meant to be
When I say I miss her She don’t look surprised She’s been having fun and Hanging out with other guys But what the hell You know it’s worth a try When I try and kiss her She looks so surprised I know she still wants it I can see it in her eyes And it takes me back And takes me by surprise, yeah! Don’t run away from me Baby, baby run away from me Yeah you’re the one I want The only girl I will ever need So run away from me Baby, baby run away from me Yeah you and I just never meant to be Finally I kiss her It makes me feel alright And now she’s looking at me Like she’s wanted it all night And I take her back And she turns out the light, yeah! Now she’s in focus Everything’s a dream But the world around her Isn’t what it seems Now I see the message Written in disguise But I don’t think I need a good reply
School Is In 02:05
Psycho Girl 01:52
She’s always tryin’ to tell me That this will end in tears I don’t believe in Jesus And she don’t like The Queers But that’s ok with me cos She makes me feel alright We drink until we drown and Then we stay up half the night And now I’m getting lost In her crazy little world My head is in a spin Because my baby is a psycho girl Fast forward to the present And it is as she feared We just started to play but She’s bursting into tears Then she wanted to go but I didn’t have the fight My baby’s freaking out on me And I can’t sleep at night
Motivation 02:36
One by one layers strip away Until all that’s left is an empty frame Not gonna fight you Too lost in disarray Why do you wanna burn out When you can fade away Why do you wanna look back When you can turn the page We’re gonna fight you And throw it all away And then you’re gonna pay You’ve gotta fight that feeling Building up inside you Don’t need motivation With no regrets you beat the rest, whoa-oh Moving up you start again But it’s the same old problem to pretend Not gonna fight you Its better in the end Cos there’s a time bomb tickin’ Inside your brain And there’s a psycho Waitin’ to come out and play Try to invite you To throw it all away And waste another day
So Far Away 02:42
Mean it when I say that I don’t want this anymore Lying if I say that I don’t care My head I spinning round I’m off the pace and losing ground Staring down a road to knowhere Cos its easy to see how you stumble along Forgetting the problems and righting the wrongs Behind every truth there’s a million lies We’re burning the bridges, severing all the ties Now the light’s going out And the dream slipped away All the places we used to go So far away who-oa-oh Analysed the truth in all the things you said before Realised that it was for the best Next time you come around We will be staying underground Staring back along the road again As friends we’ll stand in distant lands again
Room 102 01:56
Side by side we turn the tide Divided in defeat Until the end I can pretend And hate myself for it And you don’t seem to notice How things always repeat Lightning strikes again And my heart skips a beat Because we’re all singing the same tune And we don’t believe in your point of view Yeah we’re all singing the same tune We’re just waiting time by taking sides Room 102 Just in time we draw the line That never meant to be As once again we sing as friends In tuneless harmony Now we’ve been so far together That I’ve lost myself again Wondering if I still really care Now you try so hard to tell me That there’s nothing wrong Hating all the times we used to share
We’re not giving up or caving in We’ve got a million miles to go Been here before the revolving door Keeps turning on its own But we’re breaking out and leaving the frustration And coming up for air But it’s hard to face the music When you’re scared of what’s out there Holding on to better dreams Between the lines, behind the scenes Holding on to better dreams Who-oh-oh-oh we still believe We stay strong enough when times are tough There’s still a million miles to go We don’t look behind or compromise We’ve gotta make it on our own But it’s hard to face the music From a million miles away Don’t wanna find the answer Skip through another day As it fades away It fades away
