Defense

Original and similar lyrics
Always on the defense Think it's just my reflex I don't want want a physical fight It's not my style But I'm always on the defense Gettin' into arguments I should get away for awhile Away for awhile Lookin' for a reason To provoke my inner demons Lately they've been fueling my fire Fueling my fire But I'm always on the defense Light some candles, light some incense I should get away for awhile Away for awhile On and off The struggle, let go On and off Don't push the button, man just leave it alone Don't push the button, man just leave it alone Having trouble speakin' Exactly what I'm thinkin' Lately that's been fueling my fire Fueling my fire Not into gettin' even Resort to heavy drinkin' I don't want a physical fight It's not my style Always on the defense Think it's just my reflex I should get away for awhile Away for awhile Always on the defense Soothe it up by confidence Waitin' for the well to run dry Well to run dry On and off The struggle, let go On and off Don't push the button, man just leave it alone Don't push the button, man just leave it alone Don't push the button, man just leave it alone

Fool Button

JIMMY BUFFETT "Son Of A Son Of A Sailor"
I woke up in a strange room That I'd never seen before Weird paintings on the wall And mirrors on the ceiling I bolted for the door. Looking for my rent-a-car Was the Cordoba blue or red Tryin' to remember where I put the keys Tryin' to remember what I said. I pushed the fool button My night went haywire I pushed the fool button Set my brain on fire. Now I was sittin' in the corner of a very laid back bar A little three piece band playin' on the stand Not knowin' what lay in store In a flash a man with a hat and a harmonica stormed the stage The crowd went berserk, the band said, 'What a jerk.' As he went into a blues rampage. It was a fool palace Double knit on parade They pushed the fool button As the skinny boy played and played Push it, push it, push it. I try to make a point of protecting the innocent But none of them can be found I can happen anytime It can happen any place It can happen in your own hometown/ And if you don't believe my words Or think my story's true Get a bottle of rum and an Eskatrol And watch the same thing happen to you. We'll push the fool button I'll meet you in the bar We'll push the fool button Where everyone's a star.

How Does It Feel To Be Back

Daryl Hall John Oates
She had sulky smile She took her standard pose as she presented herself She had sultry eyes, she made it perfectly plain that she was his For a price But he said Leave me alone, I'm a family man And my bark is much worse than my bite He said Leave me alone, I'm a family man But if you push me too far I just might She wore hurt surprise as she rechecked her make-up to protect herself Dropped her price and pride she made it totally clear that she was his For a night She gave him her look, it would have worked on any other man around He looked her up and down, she knew he couldn't decide if he should Hold his ground She turned, tossed her head unlike her opening move, her final exit line He waited much too long but by the time he got his courage up she was gone Then he screamed Leave me alone, I'm a family man And my bark is much worse than my bite He said Leave me alone, I'm a family man But if you push me too far, I just might

Laura

BILLY JOEL "The Nylon Curtain"
Laura Calls me In the middle of the night Passes on her Painful information Then these careless fingers They get caught in her vice Til they're bleeding On my coffee table Living alone isn't all that It's cracked up to be I'm on her side Why does she push the poison on me? Laura Has a very hard time All her life has Been one long disaster Then she tells me She suddenly believes she's seen A very good sign She'll be taking Some aggressive action I fight her wars While she's slamming her doors In my face Failure to break Was the only mistake That she made Here I am Feeling like a fucking fool Do I react the way exactly She intends me to? Everytime I think I'm off the hook She makes me lose my cool I'm her machine And she can punch all the keys And she can push any button I was programmed through Laura Calls me When she needs a good fix All her questions Will get sympathetic answers I should Be so Immunized To all of her tricks She's surviving On her second chances Sometimes I feel like this Godfather deal is all wrong How can she hold an umbilical chord For so long? I've done everything I can What else am I supposed to do I'm her machine And she can punch all the keys And she can push any button I was programmed through Laura Loves me Even if I don't care That's my problem That's her sacred absolution If she had to She would put herself in my chair Even though I Faced electrocution She always says I'm the best friend that She's ever had How do you Hang up on someone Who needs you that bad?

Ended way faster than anyone imagined Living like a wealthy man, anything can happen She was just a sundress spotted in Manhattan Now we getting undressed back room on the mattress Got a tiny apartment but I hope that you will crash here They say I didn't pay my dues, I don't ever need it If everything you say is true, I do not believe it Money's piling up I just feel like a bulimic Throw it up throw it up and I'll leave it Cause I'm driving in a Chevy that her daddy done bought Pedal's getting heavy cause she's never on course Grabbing to the clutch while she's trying to grab on to me (on to me) So I'm telling her Please don't get that close to me Cause I just got a feeling that you won't like what you see (like what you see) So you know I gotta Push you away, push push you away I gotta push you away, push push you away I gotta (gotta) Please don't get that close to me (that close to me) Damn Cheap wine plus the smell of some cigarettes Goldilocks, there's another one in my bed Let's keep the lights off, undercover, infrared Telling me I think I liked you better on the internet Living like a wealthy man, yeah she hates my lifestyle Talking serious and hating it when I smile I don't really need a wife, but I need her right now Every mistake I make you taking me to time out They say I didn't pay my dues, I don't ever need it If everything you say is true, I do not believe it Money's piling up I just feel like a bulimic Throw it up throw it up and I'll leave it Cause I'm driving in the city where my parents grew up And the only thing that's changing is I finally blew up Rollin down the window just to give myself some room to breathe (room to breathe) So I'm telling her Please don't get that close to me Cuz I just got a feeling that you won't like what you see (like what you see) So you know I gotta Push you away, push push you away I gotta push you away, push push you away I gotta (gotta) Please don't get that close to me (that close to me) Ba ba da ba ba da Getting that close to me Ba ba da ba ba da Cause I been driving in this city in this pickup truck And the only thing that matters, what you think of us Packing up my bags, but I never really wanna leave (wanna leave) So I'm telling her Please don't get that close to me (that close to me, that close to me) Cause I just got a feeling that you won't like what you see (I got a feeling that you won't like what you see) So you know I gotta Push you away (I gotta), push push you away I gotta push you away (I gotta), push push you away I gotta (gotta) Please don't get that close to me (don't get that close to me)

Reason

Mel Carter
So you put your cards on the table You're here, you're willing and able Do you really understand the challenge you've set yourself You know I want to adore you Can't believe how life was before you I must apologize, please understand I'm so demanding Don't need to be cruel I never felt that with you Trouble is I'm a danger to myself Don't want to push you away I really want you to stay Until I figure this out, won't you Please, come take me over Let me leave me for awhile Maybe when I'm older I'll understand the reason why Understand the reason why Every day is here to remind me That the past is always behind me Something I can never change but I won't let it hold me back You arrived just in time Now I know I'll be fine I'm not ashamed to say you truly are my inspiration Don't need to be cruel I never felt that with you Trouble is I'm a danger to myself Don't want to push you away I really want you to stay Until I figure this out, won't you Please, come take me over Let me leave me for awhile Maybe when I'm older I'll understand the reason why Understand the reason why Might not be forever Baby whatever We've got today, won't you Please, come take me over Let me leave me for awhile Maybe when I'm older I'll understand the reason why Please, come take me over Let me leave me for awhile Maybe when I'm older I'll understand the reasons why Understand the reason why
