Lyrics - Rock Steady


Intro

Hella Good

The waves keep on crashing on me for some reason
But your love keeps on coming like a thunderbolt
Come here a little closer
‘Cause I wanna see you baby real close up

You got me feeling hella good so let’s just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should so I’m gonna keep on dancing

A performance deserving of standing ovations
And who would of thought it’d be the two of us
So don’t wake me if I’m dreaming
‘Cause I’m in the mood come on and give it up

You got me feeling hella good so let’s just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should so I’m gonna keep on dancing
You got me feeling hella good so let’s just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should so I’m gonna keep on dancing

Hey Baby

I’m the kind of girl that hangs with the guys
Like a fly on the wall with my secret eyes
Taking it in, try to be feminine
With my makeup bag, watching all the sin

Misfit, I sit, lit up, wicked
Everybody else surrounded by the girls
With the tank tops and the flirty words

I’m just sipping on chamomile
Watching boys and girls and their sex appeal
With a stranger in my face who says he knows my mom
And went to my high school

All the boys say
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
Girls say, girls say,
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
Boys say, boys say,
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
All the boys get the girls in the back

I’m the one they feed upon
Give a bit, a star is born
If you’re hot enough you’ll get the pass
So you can tell your friends
How you made it back

No matter what they say
I’m still the same
Somehow everybody knows my name
And all the girls wanna get with the boys
And the boys really like it

All the boys say
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
Girls say, girls say,
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
Boys say, boys say,
“Hey baby, hey baby, hey”
All the boys get the girls in the back

Making Out

I’m on the second floor
With a lock on my door
I’m looking at a picture of your face
The last time I looked
You were looking really good
But somehow pictures fade 

We’re on the phone
We’re all alone
And that just ain’t good enough
I go around the world
To see your face
‘Cause this just ain’t good enough

 So I’m just kicking it
I’m counting the days
I hardly can wait for us to hang out
I’m really missing it in so many ways
I anticipate us making out 

Sip my morning tea
But you’re not next to me
Here goes another day
And driving in my car
I wonder how you are
While our favorite music plays

The flowers arrive to my surprise
But that just ain’t good enough
And I got the note, it gave me hope
But that just ain’t good enough 

So I’m just kicking it
I’m counting the days
I hardly can wait for us to hang out
I’m really missing it in so many ways
I anticipate us making out

Soon you’ll be here with me
Soon you’ll be right here with me 

I’m with my friends till the night ends
But that just ain’t good enough
And honestly you can trust me
But that just ain’t good enough 

So I’m just kicking it
I’m counting the days
I hardly can wait for us to hang out
I’m really missing it in so many ways
I anticipate us making out

Underneath It All

There's times when I want something more
Someone more like me
There's times when this dress rehearsal
Seems incomplete

But you see the colors in me
Like no one else
And behind your dark glasses
You're something else

You're really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I'm really lucky
Underneath it all
You're really lovely

You know some real bad tricks
And you need some discipline
But lately you've been trying real hard
And giving me your best

And you give me the most gorgeous sleep
That I've ever had
And when it's really bad
I guess it's not that bad

You're really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I'm really lucky
Underneath it all
You're really lovely

So many moons that we have seen
Stumbling back next to me
I've seen right through and underneath

And you make me better
I've seen right through and underneath
And you make me better

You've used up all your coupons
And all you got left is me
And somehow I'm full of forgiveness
I guess it's meant to be…

You're really lovely
Underneath it all
You want to love me
Underneath it all
I'm really lucky
Underneath it all
You're really lovely

Detective

My back it hurts again
It aches like history
Cottonmouth and all lit up
You’re smiling back at me 

But I feel you must have failed me
Once again you’ve let me down
My confidence below my knees now
I need to find you out 

Peek in sneak about
I’m gonna snoop and call you out
I caught you, your hands are red
Now I’m your broken hearted detective 

Hey lover, why the gun?
Hold on I’m almost there
It’s too late, you killed the trust
Don’t act so unaware

So why are you so destructive?
Do you realize what you’ve done
You can’t bring it back to life now
What are you running from? 

Peek in sneak about
I’m gonna snoop and call you out
I caught you, your hands are red
Now I’m your broken hearted detective 

I don’t like the way I feel
I just want you to be real 

Hey girl save the liar
Can’t you see his pants on fire?
Hey girl save the liar
Can’t you see his pants on fire? 

I’m rummaging through your closet
Imagining all the worst thoughts 

Peek in sneak about
I’m gonna snoop and call you out
I caught you, your hands are red
Now I’m your broken hearted detective

Don't Let Me Down

Laughing so hard I’ve got tears in my eyes
Walk in the park under sapphire skies
Oh I can’t believe that you’re still around
Almost forgot how you let me down
Crying so deep that I think I might die
Your mistakes I keep in the back of my mind
So hard to let go but I’m coming ‘round
The scars are still fragile, don’t let me down 

So don’t blow it, no not a little bit
‘Cause now you’re all mine
Don’t you forget it
Don’t blow it, even a little bit
‘Cause now you’re all mine
Don’t you forget it
Don’t let me down 

Time after time it’s just too much to take
I’ve waited so long just to get to this place
And finally It feels like the lost was found
You’ve got me filled up now don’t let me down 

So don’t blow it, no not a little bit
‘Cause now you’ve all mine
Don’t you forget it
Don’t blow it, even a little bit
‘Cause now you’re all mine
Don’t you forget it
Don’t let me down


Start The Fire

Go on and baby get the lighter
We’re gonna start the fire

The army of words in me
Silent the soldier weeps
Lying here back to back
Waiting for you to react

And sometimes all I need is a good push
Roll over and whisper some goodness
Go on baby you be he hero
Now can we go back to zero?

Go on and get the lighter, we’re gonna need some fire
Let’s get a little higher, the battlefield is tired
Nevermind all that
Go on and baby get the lighter, we’re gonna start the fire 

Just come here and cuddle up
I feel a little rough
I missed you in my sleep
Are you still mad at me?

The moon must have mended my bad mood
Come kiss me the way you meant to
Last night I was just playing
Lets put it all away and…

Go on and get the lighter, we’re gonna need some fire
Let’s get a little higher, the battlefield is tired
Never mind all that
Go on and baby get the lighter, wer’re gonna start the fire 

Climb in and love me
Climb in and love me 

Had quite a heavy night
So delicate our love and pride
The most stubborn girl around
You really kow how to bring me down
One more famous night to remember
Let’s laugh at my silly temper
Now let’s burn the morning sweetly
Get over here now and complete me 

Go on and get the lighter, we’re gonna need some fire
Let’s get a little higher, the battlefield is tired
Nevermind all that
Go on and baby get the lighter, we’re gonna start the fire


Running

Run, running all the time
Running to the future
With you right by my side

Me, I’m the one you chose
Out of all the people
You wanted me the most

And I’m so sorry that I’ve fallen
Help me up, let’s keep on running
Don’t let me fall out of love

Running, running, as fast as we can
Do you think we’ll make it?
We’re running, keep holding my hand
So we don’t get separated

Be, be the one I need
Be the one I trust most
Don’t stop inspiring me

Sometimes it’s hard to keep on running
We work so much to keep it going
Don’t make me want to give up

Running, running as fast as we can
I really hope we make it
We’re running, keep holding my hand
So we don’t get separated

Running as fast as we can
I really hope we make it
We’re running as fast as we can
I really hope we make it
We’re running, keep holding my hand
So we don’t get separated

The future…
Running, running, as fast as we can
Do you think we’ll make it?
We’re running, keep holding my hand
So we don’t get separated

Running as fast as we can
I really hope we make it
We’re running, running, keep holding my hand
So we don’t get separated

In My Head

I try to think about rainbows
When it gets bad
You got to think about something
To keep from going mad

I try to think about big fat roses
When the ship starts going down
But my head is wicked jealous
Don’t want to talk about it right now

Long distance, don’t talk about
Ex-girlfriends, don’t talk about
You without me, don’t talk about
The past

In my head
It’s only in my head
In my head
It’s only in my head

There’s just something about you
That gets me in a twist
And sometimes I think that cupid
Is just taking the piss

It only takes one word or idea
To send me in real deep
So if you think you’re clever,
Use the right words when you talk to me

Long distance, don’t talk about
Ex-girlfriends, don’t talk about
You without me, don’t talk about
The past 

In my head
It’s only in my head
In my head
It’s only in my head 


I really think I have a problem
I really can’t control myself
Why do I get so suspicious?
Do you want someone else?
‘Cause everybody wants everybody else…

In my head
It’s only in my head
In my head
It’s only in my head


Platinum Blonde Life

I’m closing all the curtains

So don’t you even bother

And they’re calling out murder

But I’m underneath the covers

And who’s fooling who

With this mood like a train?
Watch me roll over
Get out of my way

And there’s a knock on my door
But I’m not gonna open it
I’m gonna close my eyes
And maybe it will go away

I want a platinum blonde life
So I keep bleaching out the color
I try to do what I oughta
But never drink enough water

And where did my lamb go?
I wish she could stay
I feel as empty as a widow
I’m gonna sleep it all away

And there’s a knock on my door
But I’m not gonna open it
I’m gonna close my eyes
And maybe it will go away
I’m going to sleep all through the day
I’m going to sleep my life away
I’m going to sleep all through the day
I’m going to sleep myself away
I’m going to close my eyes and maybe it will go away

And there’s a knock on my door
But I’m not gonna open it
I’m gonna close my eyes
And maybe it will go away

Waiting Room

I signed in my name
I guess I’ll have to wait a while
I wanna play this game
Call me up if you know how to dial 

You always had my number
You need to be my lover
Humiliation…I’m in the waiting room
If we both want the love and I wait long enough
Then the ground that we’re on might be common 

All I can do is wait for you
All I can do is wait for you
I’m all alone in the waiting room
I’m all alone in the waiting room 

When you’re burning solitude
It can get real thick
If desire is your only food
It can get you sick 

You know you’re so fine
I’m over here standing in this ine
Just awaiting in the waiting room
If we both want the love and I wait long enough
Then the ground that we’re on might be common 

All I can do is wait for you
All I can do is wait for you
I’m all alone in the waiting room
I’m all alone in the waiting room

While I’m in the waiting room
A thousand thoughts I think of you
Whatever you did has ot me glued
It’s icky, it’s sticky ooh
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Why does this feel like wasted time
What a price this traveling love?

You and me trapped between these lines
Ooh you’re so mine
If we both want the love and I wait long enough
Then the ground that we’re on might be common

All I can do is wait for you
All I can do is wait for you
I’m all alone in the waiting room
I’m all alone in the waiting room

Rock Steady

Our love is rock steady…

Love is like a punishment
Homegirl here to represent
So innocently ou seem to come my way
While tinkerbell and cupid play

They sit there and they laugh
I sit here and I can’t believe my eyes
You found me at last
But we’re too human to see the way we’ll agonize 

A real love survives
A rock steady vibe
A real love survives
A rock steady vibe 

Steady now stop rocking it
It’s a delicate environment
Retired but sleeping is our shanty love
Be careful now, don’t wake it up 

It’s never gonna last
It’s never gonna make it back alive
So now can we relax?
I really hope that we will actually survive 

A real love survives
A rock steady vibe
A real love survives
A rock steady vibe 

It’s never gonna last
It’s never make it back alive
So now can we relax?
I really hope that we will actually survive 

A real love survives
A rock steady vibe
A real love survives
A rock steady vibe 

Our love is so rock steady…
