Just Testing Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Dragan
1. Living Proof (5:44)
Why does love have to?
Where does it go to?
Outta my door
How much have you got?
Is it enough for me?
Or will I want more?

Oh, oh, oh, you tell me you just want some fun.
Oh, oh, oh, I'm trapped between the fire and the man with the gun.

Time in a vacuum,
Waiting for someone to say what they think.
But all their pretending doesn't convince me
'Cause they just want to buy me a drink.

Oh, oh, oh, you tell me you want to be free.
Oh, oh, oh, baby, I'm trapped between the devil and the deep blue sea.

It's night in the city,
I'm filled with self-pity,
I'm taking the air.
If somebody hits me
Here in this city,
I swear I just don't care.

Oh, oh, oh, I've got to have some proof
Oh, oh, oh, I'm trapped like a cat on a hot tin roof
Oh, oh, oh, I've just got to have proof
Oh, oh, oh, trapped like a cat on a hot tin roof.

I, gotta have proof
I, gotta have proof
2. Haunting Me (4:34)
Sit down, girl, beside me,
Come on tell 'em about your life.
Mmm, got so much to talk about,
Yeah, we could stay out all night.

Long time ago we were lovers
Like no one ever knew.
Long time ago
Your face was falling out of view.

Haunting me
Used to say that you were haunting me.
Haunting me
You know your memory was haunting me.

Now when I'm looking at you
I see more than just a pretty face.
Well, I say I want you with me, girl,
Because no one could take your place.

Long time ago we were too free
And easy to fool.
Long time ago we thought
That the fire would cool.

Haunting me
I used to say that you were haunting me.
Haunting me
You know your memory was haunting me.
3. Insomnia (5:09)
You done someone wrong
Your karma has come
To settle the score with you.
You're sneaking, you're crawling
Into the ground
Eyes open wide and blue.

Insomnia
Closer, but no closer.
Insomnia
Closer, but no closer.

The night you were laying
You had it made
When everyone fell into place.
Higher and higher
Too fast to miss a beat,
Body and bones as well.

Insomnia
Burning like a hell.
Insomnia
Oh, burning, yes, burning like a hell.

Where does it come from?
Where does it go?
Flowing over your skin.
Walking and talking,
Dancing 'till the dawn,
When you just can't give in to.

Insomnia
Waiting to get you.
Insomnia
Waiting to get you.

Waiting to, waiting to get you, inso...
Waiting to, waiting to get you, inso...
Don't let it, don't let it, inso...
Don't let it, don't let it,
Don't let it get you.
4. Helpless (4:03)
Ooh, there's something happening, ooh.
Ooh, there's something happening, ooh.

Won't you take my love forever,
Won't you take my love for you,
Won't you take my love together,
Won't you give me your love too?

I will give you my love gladly
And I hope you'll give me yours.
Somehow we can live together
Couldn't love you any more.

I'm so helpless, helpless,
I can feel you're helpless too.
I'm so helpless, helpless,
So helpless without you.

Ooh, there's something happening, ooh.
Ooh, there's something happening, ooh.

I'm so helpless, helpless,
I can feel you're helpless too.
I'm so helpless, helpless,
So helpless without you.
5. Pay the Price (3:34)
Baby don't care who's mad about her,
Always got the boys hanging out to get her,
Knows just when to smile
But she can bite like a crocodile.

Don't want to get heavy, don't ask me why,
Got everything in place from her foot to her eyelash.
Just might dance, but not for a while
She don't want nobody cramping her style.

Knows it when you think she's nice,
But if you want her to be yours, boy,
You got to pay the price.

Better get ready for tears and sorrow
She'll be here today and she'll be gone tomorrow
Waving her pretty hand.
She's got a date with another man.

Too busy to stay in one place too long,
Got itchy feet, gotta be moving on.
See you again, out on the tiles,
Your broken heart will mend, baby, up in a while.

Now you know she's cold as ice
And if you want her to be yours, boy,
You got to pay the price.

Baby don't care who's mad about her,
Always got the boys hanging out to get her,
Knows just when to smile
But she can bite like a crocodile.

Don't want to get heavy, don't ask me why,
Got everything in place from her foot to her eyelash.
Just might dance, but not for a while
She don't want nobody cramping her style.

Knows it when you think she's nice,
But if you want her to be yours, boy,
You got to pay the price.
6. New Rising Star (3:58)
The ugly mess you thought you were is fading fast
Now something's broken through its virtues.
The life plan is rolling back at long last,
The wheel of fate turns to your fortune.

New rising star
Sinister symphony.
New rising sun
Shines on in sympathy.

Skin deep, so cheap,
This thing called beauty
Beholder, railroader, cold shoulder.
Identities more than you find in the mirror.
I watched you grow your own
In the dust of the bones
From your older days.

New rising star
Sinister symphony.
New rising sun
Shines on in sympathy.

You were a stranger in your homeland,
Reborn, a space age dream,
Transformation complete.
The fags and bitches,
Rags and riches,
Leave them to rest.
This soul has found its pride
Inside its own breast.

New rising star
Sinister symphony.
New rising sun
Shines on in sympathy.
7. Master of Disguise (4:25)
I'm a master of disguise,
Mystery in your eyes,
Travelling the backroads of your country.
Well, you think you've got my number
Then again, you wonder
Will you ever get to find the real me.

Things are not always
As they first may seem
It's like living in a dream.

So you'd like me to reveal
All that I know and feel
At the risk of causing panic and destruction.
Well, there's a method in this madness.
I don't mean to cause you sadness
My course is strictly governed by instruction.

Things are not always
As they first may seem
It's like living in a dream.

I'm a master of disguise
Not about to compromise
My position in this scheme of worldly values.
Well, they're calling out my name.
And I promised to remain
Ever faithful to the memory of what is true.

Things are not always
As they first may seem
It's like living in a dream.

I'm living in a dream,
Out in the night - in the cold, cold night
8. Lifeline (6:29)
Like a fighter that lost his will to kill
You knew it was time to go,
As I lay in a state of surrender
You chose me to say your last 'hello'.

Like a fighter that lost his will to kill
You knew it was time to go.
You came upon me
As I lay in a state of surrender.
You said you're not afraid
You know me well.

Because I felt you die
Like you said you would touch me
The wind blew sugar sweet
As you passed that silver life line.
