Defying Gravity Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Open Your Eyes
Got up this morning, dog is yawning, just a typical day
One sip of coffee, took a look outside, and then I said hey
Do you see the sun in the sky (shining through)
Do you see the clouds rolling by (sky is blue)
Do you see the trees on the hill
If you open your eyes
Then I know that you will

I play my music, every afternoon, now don't tell my wife
Love what you do, and you will never work a day in your life
Do you hear the song that I sing (yes it's true)
Do you hear the music I bring (it's for you)
Do you want your love to be real
If you open your heart
Then I know you can feel

Dig the beat, and dig your heels into the ground
Dig a hole, to see what's waiting underground
Ain't much to see, by only looking down
Better change your direction na-na-na now

The time I'm waiting for, is when I see the stars, I will say
The sun is running down, but city lights, will still let me play
Stay up all night, until I start again, the very next day
Do you see the sun in the sky (shining through)
Do you see the clouds rolling by (sky is blue)
Do you see the trees on the hill
If you open your eyes
Then I know that you will
Open your eyes
Then I know that you will
If you open your eyes...
2. Defying Gravity
I was trapped in a bubble of ordinary
And I'm dying for a little mystery
Tearing away with the mask on my face
Changing my ancient history
I have faith in my fate
I am not afraid

I won't be a victim of circumstances
If I don't hear the music, I can't dance
What am I worth if I don't take a turn
I crash and I burn, I took my chance
I have faith in my fate
I am not afraid

The eyes of the world
The way they weigh me down

Time has come when I'll be gone
Beyond the great unknown
I'll be flying free, defying gravity
Cut the strings and say a prayer
And take off on my own
Me, I'm flying free, defying gravity
Gravity, defying gravity

I was born with the heart of a true believer
At the top of the tree the fruit gets sweeter
Just good enough is never enough
Man, I'm just a dreamer

The eyes of the world
The way they weigh me down

Time has come when I'll be gone
Beyond the great unknown
I'll be flying free, defying gravity
Cut the strings and say a prayer
And take off on my own
Me, I'm flying free, defying gravity
Gravity, defying gravity

Somewhere out there there's a place where I belong
In a wondrous garden where the voices in my head are gone

Time has come when I'll be gone
Beyond the great unknown
I'll be flying free, defying gravity
Cut the strings and say a prayer
And take off on my own
Me, I'm flying free, defying gravity

Time has come when I'll be gone
I'll be flying free, defying gravity
Cut the strings and say a prayer
Me, I'm flying free, defying gravity
3. Everybody Needs a Little Trouble
You know the shits gonna hit ya
As you stare into hurricane eye
I flirt with the flame to get a taste of the strange
I'm crazy as a Van Gogh sky

I miss the bliss, can I get a witness
Falling for this wicked addiction
I found my twist, I found my rhythm
A beautiful bad ass stone temptation

I'm game and I'm wild as I wanna be
And I can't stand still
I know it's wrong, but I keep throwing long
The thrill is in the trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble

I roll my bones for the money
Wake the dead and come alive
My vice is never taking advice
I brave the bees for the honey

I miss the bliss, can I get a witness
Falling for this wicked addiction
I found my weakness, a little sweetness
A beautiful bad ass stone temptation

I'm game and I'm wild as I wanna be
And I can't stand still
I know it's wrong, but I keep throwing long
The thrill is in the trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little...

I'm game and I'm wild as I wanna be
And I can't stand still
I know it's wrong, but I keep throwing long
The thrill is in the trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble
'Cause everybody needs a little trouble
Everybody needs a little... trouble
4. Damn I’m In Love Again
I never live my life afraid
I don't regret mistakes I made
But suddenly I'm in this other place
It doesn't matter what I do
My happiness is tied to you
I can't go back now
Everything has changed

Oh oh I can't believe I landed in this mess
And if you ask me now oh baby I say yes
If you need a perfect man I do my best

Damn I'm in love again
Do do do do do
Damn I'm in love again

I wake up in the morning light
I feel so high like I could fly
I used to keep that one foot on the ground
But you came in like a heart attack
And I'd chase you to the moon and back
No safety net was never coming down

Oh oh I can't believe I landed in this mess
And if you ask me now oh baby I say hell yes
If you need a perfect man I do my best

Damn I'm in love again
Do do do do do
Damn I'm in love again, yeah yeah
I'm in love, in love, in love, I'm in love again
Do do do do do
Do do do do do
I'm in love again

And I want the world to know that I love you so
And I'm lucky to be stranded in this mess
Oh if I ask you now oh babe will you say yes
Cause if you need a perfect man I do my best

Damn I'm in love again
Do do do do do
Do do do do do
I'm in love, in love again
Do do do do do
Damn I'm in love again
I'm in love...
I'm in love again
5. Mean to Me
I wanna tell you a story
'Bout a girl from NYU
And she thought it was funny
To break everybody's heart in two
I really thought that I might change her ways
Loved her so hard for a couple days
Baby here's what I say

I'd set the sinners free
That's what you mean to me
Give up my chance to be
That's what you mean to me, mean to me

I'd thought she'd listen
Staring back with those big blue eyes
Still something was missin'
As she looked away I got wise
I tried so hard to make it through
But there's always somethin' left to do
I'm coming back for you

I'd set the sinners free
That's what you mean to me
Give up my chance to be
That's what you mean to me, mean to me

We could jam
We could jam
We could jam all night
We could play our troubles away
We could pass it 'round
We could dig that sound
Warmin' up that cold December

She could dance
She could dance
She could dance all night
Makin' eyes at everybody but me
Such a bitter pill
But I love her still
That is all I can remember
Won't you free my mind

I'd set the sinners free
That's what you mean to me
Give up my chance to be
That's what you mean to me, mean to me
6. Nothing Bad (About Feeling Good)
I know who you love
It's no secret
I know who you love
And it's no game
I know who you love
Because when we met
Every other love
Just felt the same

You know your smile shines like the sun
And I believe that you're the one
I know who you love
'Cause it feels right
You could stay all night
And you should
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad

I know who you love
It's no secret
I know who you love
I'm calling your name
When she broke my heart
You could heal it
Now I finally got
Where I wanna stay

You know your smile lights up the sky
And I can feel the reason why
I know who you love
'Cause it feels right
You could stay all night
And you should
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad

I know who you love
It's no secret
I know who you love
'Cause it feels right
You could stay all night
And you should
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad 'bout feelin' good
Nothin' bad
7. Forever and Back
I'm just a simple man
Doing the best I can
Driving a car I can afford
Born with a losing hand
Don't have a master plan
Trying to do right by the Lord

I am the beast, you're the beauty
Do you still have feelings for me?
I know that I said some quite stupid things
And if only I could take the words back
Back, back, back, back, back, back

Then would you say that you love me?
Wish you could only forgive me
Tell me that I make you happy, oh oh
Promise to love you forever and ever and ever and ever and back
Forever and back

I know that I drink too much
Gamble more than enough
Promise you I'll give it up
And I'll open a bank account
Save up a big amount
Buy back the future we lost

I've been a fool to my princess
Treated you wrong from the start
But oh, when you left me I lost my direction
So tell me that you want me back
Back, back, back, back, back, back

Then would you say that you love me?
I wish you could only forgive me, oh yeah
Tell me that I make you happy
I promise to love you forever and ever and ever and ever and back
Forever and back

And don't be afraid to love again, oh oh
Give me a chance to be better

I've been a fool to my princess
I've treated you wrong from the start
But oh, when you left me I lost my direction
So tell me that you want me back
Back, back, back, back, back, back

Then would you say that you love me?
I wish you could only forgive me
And tell me that I make you happy, oh yeah
I promise to love you forever and ever, ever and back

Say that you love me
Wish you could only forgive me, oh yeah
Tell me that I make you happy
I promise to love you forever, oh oh oh
Forever and back
8. She’s All Coming Back to Me Now
I had a dream the other day
We were dining naked in a crowded café
Acting on our very best without a bulletproof vest
We could speak in foreign tongues
So sublime to surrender to the wine, so infectious...
Nothing hurt it was perfect till dessert

I'm not over getting over you at all
You live in my head you're hard to forget
My eyes open to love and loathing
The devil takes a bow
She's all coming back to me now

When the fireworks begin
The little daggers dig a hole we fall in
The fascination takes a dive I barely make it out alive
Just in time to pay the check
What's the use, it's the same polite abuse resurrected
What a joke the dream goes up in smoke

I'm not over getting over you at all
You live in my head you're hard to forget
My eyes open to love and loathing
The devil takes a bow
She's all coming back to me now

Come on cupid, pour me another cup of stupid
One more time

I'm not over getting over you at all
You live in my head you're hard to forget
My eyes open to love and loathing
The devil takes a bow
She's all coming back to me now
...
9. 1992
Help me
Remember 'bout the time
And won't you tell me
Anything you find
What did they write
In the history book
You know the story gets better
If you know how to look
I can't believe that
That was really me
Won't you tell me
Everything you see
What did I do
And what did I know
When I rocked this world
Twenty five years ago

Thought about a girl that I once knew
Put her in a song with some greens and blues
Wore somebody's shirt that I didn't choose
But the fans were screaming, so I couldn't refuse
Record company said to us, thank you, man
Then they threw us right into the garbage can
But the good people listened, and they pulled us through
I was number 1
In 1992

Catch me
I'm climbing up the walls
Won't you heal me
Taken too many falls
I got the scars
Putting in my time
Started up 'round
'89
It took me three years
To find my groove
It felt look pushing
On a stone that wouldn't move
I've been moving way too fast
Just blowing past the people saying
It wouldn't last

Thought about a girl that I once knew
Put her in a song with some greens and blues
Wore somebody's shirt that I didn't choose
But the fans were screaming, so I couldn't refuse
Record company said to us, thank you, man
Then they threw us right into the garbage can
But the good people listened, and they pulled us through
I was number 1
In 1992

I went from sleeping on the floor
To being the one the kids adore
Right time, right place, the golden age
That spotlight hit me on the stage

Thought about a girl that I once knew
Put her in a song with some greens and blues
Wore somebody's shirt that I didn't choose
But the fans were screaming, so I couldn't refuse
Record company said to us, thank you, man
Then they threw us right into the garbage can
But the good people listened, and they pulled us through
I was number 1
In 1992

1992
10. Nothing At All
Tell me what it is, what you want
Why ya shut me out
Who you're gonna get to do it with ya
When you can't do it by yourself
Speak now or forever hold your peace y'all

Tell me what you love, what's in your blood
Tell me the truth and voodoo child
Get your soul saved
So say what you can't say out laud
When everybody's watching

Where do you stand when you land in the frying pan
Freedom ain't free when you're numb and your number's up
Which way does the tree fall
When you can't read your mouth
When your mind is saying nothing at all

How do you make it stop when you're caught with your pants down
Lying through your teeth and never seeing or believing
That the world is round
And it's coming back to bite you

Where do you stand when you land in the frying pan
Freedom ain't free when you're numb and your number's up
Which way does the tree fall
When you can't read your mouth
When your mind is saying nothing at all

Ain't no playing hide and seek
Trouble with your double speak
Mindless, spineless
Is that the way you get your kicks
Trying to make a fool believe

Where do you stand when you land in the frying pan
Freedom ain't free when you're numb and your number's up
Which way does the tree fall
When you can't read your mouth
When your mind is saying nothing at all
Nothing at all

Which way does the tree fall
When you can't read your mouth
When your mind is saying nothing at all
11. Be Kind
My soul was torn apart
Broken down and naked
Nothing that I tried would ever do
So I called a couple friends
But they can't seem to make it
No one that I need is coming through
And I feel it when you treat me like you do

So be kind as much as you can
And won't you try, try to understand
Cause you don't know what we've been through
You'd want some kindness if it happened to you
So be kind
So be kind
So be kind

Sometimes you gotta work
And there's no time for playing
Endless are the things you gotta do
You give until it hurts
And everybody's taking
Seems unfair, and that's because it's true
But still it makes it better when you do

So be kind as much as you can
And won't you try, try to understand
Cause you don't know what we've been through
You'd want some kindness if it happened to you
So be kind whoever you are
And I don't mind if you think you're a star
Just please don't go cause you never know
What you'll find
That in the end you need a friend
So please won't you be kind
So be kind

All the changes are changing my mind
All the anger I'm leaving behind
Then I find...

So be kind as much as you can
And won't you try, try to understand
Cause you don't know what we've been through
You'd want some kindness if it happened to you
So be kind whoever you are
And I don't mind if you think you're a star
Just please don't go cause you never know
What you'll find
That in the end you need a friend
So please won't you be kind
So be kind
