She's Not a Little Girl Anymore
I know that everything is different now
She's grown you don't have to tell me the way how
She thinks that we must get together sometime
Well I think that she must be right out of her mind
'Cause she is the girl I've adored
Since I taught her to ride her first bike
She's no lil g con't.

But now she wants a ride of a different kind
She's not a little girl any more

I know she's not a little girl anymore

She says that everything is different now
We've grown but I already knew that and how
She says that we could make a couple or pair
She says it's love or war and everything's fair
'Cause she is the girl I've adored
Since we used to walk home from school
But now she wants to go and change all the rules
She's not a little girl anymore

I know she's not a little girl anymore

'Cause she is the girl I've adored
Since I taught her to ride her first bike
But now she wants a ride of a different kind
She's not a little girl anymore

I know she's not a little girl anymore
Let me say that I know she's not a little girl anymore

Technology
I've got a brand new car
I think it's a jaguar
I've got the atom bomb
I've got it but I'm getting blown away
I'm getting farther and farther away
And farther and farther away
From who I'm supposed to be
I live in Technology

I've got MTV
I've got a new disease
I've got oscilliscope
I've got it but I've it but I've got no hope
Away I'm going farther and farther away
And farther and farther away
From who I'm supposed to be
Technology con't.

I live in Technology

LEAD

We'll go to the stars
But have we gone a bit too far
We've thrown it all away
Maybe our race should go away
Were goin' farther and farther away
And farther and farther away
A universe to lay to waste
We live in Technology

I Play the Records
I play the records
I play them one by one
I play them in my basement
I blast 'em just for fun
I play them for my friends they dance with blue jeans on
I play my records
'Cause I'm a cool dude now

I play the records I play the records all night long 2x

The floor's colored tile
The lights all change on cue
My friends are hip we do what cool people do
I got no wrap on rugs they do me good somehow
I play the records
'Cause I'm a cool dude now

I play the records I play the records all night long 2x

Better Way
And if she tells me to wake up
And if she says do things my way
Or if she says you'd better make up
Or else she'll leave me one fine day
I wonder would it be so bad
Oh would my heart be oh so sad
The thought came to me yesterday
There better be a better way

Well if she says you'd better hang up
Or if she says do things my way
Or if she says you'd better shape up
Or else I'll leave you one fine day

I wonder would it be so bad
Oh would my heart be oh so sad
The thought came to me yesterday
There better be a better way

This heart of mine
Is harder than
It can't be broke
Although it's bent
And if she thinks
It's only love
This heart of mine cannot repent

This heart of mine
Is harder than
It can't be broke
Although it's spent
And if she thinks
It's only love
This heart of mine cannot repent

This heart of mine
Is filled with so much pain
If I spill it out
It fills back up again

These tears I cry
Are like an acid rain
They wash away my life
And leave an ugly stain

This heart of mine
Loves been so unkind
To this heart of mine
Ooh ooh sha la la

I Don't Wanna Say No
It's not just like the way it used to be
She's not just like the girl she used to be

But I don't wanna tell her no
I don't wanna say no
I don't want to tell you no

The sense of what it meant to be in love

She's not quite like the girl she used to be

For You
If you're worried about money
I'll rob a bank or two for you
For you

If I have to go to prison
I'd do a year or two for you
For you

And as the days go by
I'll watch leaves fall and I'll sigh for you
For you

If you're worried about the future
Frankly I'm worried too for you
For you

But I can't for the life of me
Remember what it's like to be in love
And I can't bring myself to see
The sense of what it meant to be in love

And as the years go by
I'll watch leaves fall and I'll sigh for you

If songs of sparrows spare no sorrows
I'll make all the birds blue for you

Hurt You
You'll know me when you see me I'll be standing at the party
I'll be smiling at you sweetly I'll be dressed up rather smartly
Something in your head fights with you but you know you want to meet me
When I'm finished with my dear you won't be smiling sweetly because

I'm gonna hurt you

There's something about me and there's something about you
And you know that you want me and I know about that too
Much kindness is like too much sweet it soon begins to rot your teeth
And when I'm finished with you there'll be nothing left to do

I'm gonna hurt you

And then they go like

LEAD

You go down and down and down and down and down into my depths
Until you reach me and you realize the extent to which you're trapped
And still you seem to believe somehow love will conquer evil
But in the end you'll find out what I wanted and I knew about that too

I'm gonna hurt you

And you say Why did I

Sometimes I think it's bold for her

Everything gets so frustrating

I'm Not Going Down (Anymore)
She was a girl that took from believing
Told me everything and laid it on the line
She did the things that I could not believe in
Everything she did became another line

But I'm not going down anymore
Anymore

She did the things she said were without reason
Everything she did was on the up and up
She did the things she said were just pure treason
Everything she did became a pressure drop

But I'm not going down anymore
Anymore

Big in Japan
Stateside it's taking us forever
To get anywhere at all
Lately I wish that some luck would appear
To save us from the fall

In London they're goofier than ever
In New York they're waiting for the call
The winter this year
Will be very cold my dear
If we can't get away from it all

I just wanna be big in Japan

LEAD

Nobody here seems to understand me
And I really need the luxury
So take out some time and drop me a line
Before we start to bleed

The girls will all scream and adore me
The guys admire my style
The winter this year
Will be very warm my dear
'Cause the sun never sets on those isles

I just wanna be big in Japan

Something about You
Thinking about me thinking about you
Thinking about all the hurtful hateful things we do

Thinking about love thinking about hate
Thinking about all the crazy dreams I've thrown away

I'm thinking that I'm not starting nothing that anybody
Wouldn't do
I'm thinking that I'm not starting something
That's nothing new
'Cause baby it's you

Thinking about time thinking about space
Thinking about all the hopes that I've put on erase
Thinking about me thing about you
Thinking it's another place or time or point of view

That anybody wouldn't do
I'm thinking that I'm not starting something that's nothing new

Autograph
Autograph

I saw you on T.V. one weekend
My sister fainted and my friends started freakin'
The next day we went to the record store
We got all your albums and rock star apparel
I wanna get a rock band together
We'll play loud in the basement
But my dad says never

I want your autograph
I want your autograph
But please don't say never
I need your autograph
I want your autograph
Gimme your autograph

Autograph

I'd be the cool kid at school
All of the guys would hate me
And the girls would want to date me
Every night is a nothing date until I put your tape in
And my girlfriend goes crazy
I know my life would be different if you'd just consent to put this
Pen to paper
I love your every move
I'm gonna see your movies
I swear I'll play your records
On the phonograph
For your autograph
For your auto

LEAD

Autograph

I've heard of Elvis and Buddy
Chuck Berry The Beatles
The Everlys and Jerry Lee Lewis
I know that you're one of them and if I could touch you
I'd need something to prove it
If you'd give me your autograph then maybe some day
I'd amount to something
If you would give me your autograph
My life could have meaning
If you just give me one thing
Give me your autograph
Gimme you autograph
For your autograph

Away from the Pulsebeat
I used to think that the music would set me free
Before I heard about the critics and record companies
We used to dance all night the rock and roll was outta sight
But now they're tryin' to make fools out of you and me

I don't want to hear all this groovy music
This record company pap that some rock critic drools at
That some coke addict wrote and synthesizer spit at me

What happened to rock and roll what happened to soul music
Did I just grow too old when did I start to lose it
Maybe that's the case so take me to another place and time

We'll go away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat
You and me we're gonna get out while were still young
Let's go away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat
We'll go and dance to music that we like

I once had a band
We tried so hard to help it
The music was so bad
We had a dream we might improve it the record man said no
And I saw the dollar signs in his eyes

The critics hate our band they said we just weren't groovy
They said that we'd be better
With green hair and video movies
On MTV you see the flavor that
Month was homosexual polka bands

Let's stand away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat
Let's go away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat
We stand around and let the music die

LEAD

I used to think that the music would set me free
Before I learned about the critics and record companies
We used to dance all night the rock and roll was outta sight
But now they're tryin' to make fools out of you and me

Oh we go away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat
Let's go away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat
We just can't stand around here and watch this music die
We'll go away away from the pulsebeat pulsebeat

Pulsebeat away from the pulsebeat

I used to think that the music would set me free
