Pat Benatar : Precious Time

歌词

1. PROMISES IN THE DARK

Never again,isn't that what you said ?
You've been trough this before
An'you swore,this time,you'd think with your head
No one would ever have you again
And if takin'was gonna get done
You'd decide where an'when

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper,Promises in the dark

Armed and ready,you fought love battles in the night
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
Blinded by passion,you foolishly let someone in
All the warnings went off in your head
Still you had to give in

Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper,Promises in the dark

But promises,you know what they're far
It sounds so convincing,but you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard
But Your heart says try again

You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the coast
Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper,Promises in the dark


2. FIRE AND ICE

Ooo,you're givin' me the fever tonight
I don't wanna give in
I'd be playin' with fire
You forget,I've seen you work before
Take'em straight to the top
Leave'em cryin' for more

I've seen you burn'em before

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart
You'll just tear it apart

Movin' in for the kill tonight
You got every advantage when they put out the lights
It's not so pretty when it fades away
'Cause it's just an illusion in this passion play

I've seen you burn'em before

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart

So you think you got it all figured out
You're an expert in the field,without a doubt
But I know your methods inside and out
And I won't be takenin by fire and ice

Fire and ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and ice
I wanna give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart

(Repeat)


3. JUST LIKE ME

It's just like me
To say to you
Love me dear,an'I'll be true
And all I want
For you to say
Is you'll come home
With me each day

You could be my love
That's what I want
Just you,secure
And safe from harm
It's just like me
To feel so good
And fall so much
In love with you

It's just like me
It's just like me
I'm not your fool
That's what I'll be
It's just like me
To say goodbye
And leave me all alone,I cry

It's just like me
To say to you
Love me dear,an'I'll be true
And all I want
For you to say
Is you'l come home
With me each day

It's just like me
It's just like me
I'm not your fool
That's what I'll be
It's just like you
To say goodbye
And leave me all alone,I cry
It's just like me
It's just like you
It's just like me
It's just like you
It's just like me
It's just like you
It's just like me
It's just like you

It's just like me


4. PRECIOUS TIME

I don't want to argue about who is the victim
'Cause maybe we both got burned
I don't want to talk about who is the traitor
'Cause both of our loyalties turned
I don't want to fight about who is the liar
'Cause there's too many ways to lie
I don't want to hear about who is the winner
'Cause we both know it's a tie

Cut it out,drop it
Count me out,Baby,stop it
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time

You were on a liquid diet,you were sure you had to try it
And you lost all your pounds
The doctor's on vacation,so you took the medication
And wound up in lost and found
So we took that trip to Paris,'cause you swore that it would scare us out of our swift decline
All that I remember 'bout those days in that September is the merciand the wine

Cut it out,drop it
Count me out,Baby,stop it
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Precious time,Precious time,oh,Precious time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time

You talk on the telephone
Long distance to New York or Rome
Some would say you got it made
Your home is like a fortress
No one comes in but the florist
The gardener and the maid
You call me on the telephone
You say you feel so alone
Too tired to get dressed and get out
First you're happy,then you're sad
Somehow you always hang up mad
Excuse me if I shout

Cut it out,drop it
Count me out,Baby,stop it
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time
Precious Time,Precious Time,oh,Precious Time
Life is too short,so why waste precious time


5. IT'S A TUFF LIFE

Isn't it a tuff life ?
You race your Mercedes Benz through the park after midnight
Hopin'for a few cheap thrills
There's always someone around to lift your spirits up
All along just pumpin'up your attitude
Don't believe a word they say
'Cause it's never true

Isn't it a tuff life ?
You got a tuff life
If you can't have it,then you don't want it
You don't need no steady job
Isn't a tuff life ?
You got a tuff life

You thought you'd move to Jamaica
So you packed up your bags and you headed South to get an even tan
But,you didn't count on rain
You were "perfect" for the script
So you bought the best-selling novel,knowing that you couldn't miss
But,you never got the part

Isn't it a tuff life ?
You got a tuff life
If you can't have it,then you don't want it
You don't need no steady job
Isn't it a tuff life ?
You got a tuff life

It don't get any easier
And ya know,sometimes it can get pretty ruff

Well,isn't it a tuff life ?
(you got such a tuff life)

(Repeat)


6. TAKE IT ANYWAY YOU WANT IT

You were the one made me lose control
Just when I needed to be on my own
You had an answer,but no alibi
You're feelin' sorry'cause there's no time to lie
So what
You deserve everything that you got
You think I'm gonna be there,but I'm not
So take it anyway you want it
Take it anyway you please
Take it anyway you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me

Don't bother runnin'through the old routine
Your words are weak and they don't mean a thing
You had your chances and you threw'em away
You said the 'turnaround' was in fair play
So what,
You deserve everything that you got
Ya' think I'm gonna be there,but I'm not
So take it anyway you want it
Take it anyway you please
Take it anyway you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me
I don't wanna be the one accused
You never thought you'd see the day
It'd come back on you

You hate to say that maybe you were wrong
You want contentment,but ya'can't be that strong
You see the shadow will never be mine
So what,
You deserve everything that you got
Ya'think I'm gonna be there,but I'm not
So take it anyway you want it
Take it anyway you please
Take it anyway you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me

(Repeat)


7. EVIL GENIUS

They were so ecstatic when the letter arrived
A certified genius at the age of live
They planned his future so carefully
He was everything they hoped he'd be

He was a model child,a devoted son
Loved and admired by everyone
He played out every role,a "T.V. Hero"
He lived his life in a video fantasy

He was good at school,never failed a grade
They gave him hopes and dreams
And tought him not to hate
He had rules he learned to break for fun
Now he's hidn',coz there's fingerprints on the gun

Why'd ya' have to do it,Evil Genius ?
Was it justified in your mind ?
Why'd ya' put us trough it,Evil Genius ?
Was it justified in your mind,any time
You held a grudge ?

Was it something said that pushed you over the line ?
Your best interests were in our minds
You kept it so well hidden,we never knew
No one ever expected anything like this from you

Why'd ya' have to do it,Evil Genius ?
Was it justified in your mind ?
Why'd ya' put us trough it,Evil Genius ?
Was it justified in your mind,any time you held a grudge ?

(Repeat)


8. HARD TO BELIEVE

Yesterday's a by-line
Words upon a page
Tomorrow is a deadline
Sudden,and it's strange

Hard to believe
You ever would leave,but you did
Hard to believe
You ever would leave
Nowhere to go
Can't sit still
Look for a motive in the time that I kill
Thinking up ways
To fill up my empty days
To fill up my empty days

Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so
It's hard to believe
Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so
It's hard to believe

Love is such a fine line
The finest line I've know
But sorrow is no life-line
When you're all alone

Hard to believe
You ever would leave,but you did
Hard to believe
You ever would leave

Can't sleep a wink
Up all night
The truth hurts,you know it cuts like a knife
Thinking up ways
To fill up my empty life
To fill up my empty life

Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so
It's hard to believe
Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so
It's hard to believe


9. HELTER SKELTER

When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
An'I stop,an'I turn,an'I go for a ride
'Til I get to the bottom
An'I see you again
Yeh

Do you,don't you,want me to love you ?
I'm comin' down fast
But I'm miles above you
Tell me,tell me,tell me
Come on,tell me the answer
Well,you may be a lover
But you ain't no dancer
Lookout
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter,yeh

Will you,won't you,want me to make you ?
I'm comin'down fast
But don't let me break you
Tell me,tell me,tell me the answer
You may be a lover
But you ain't no dancer

Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Lookout

When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
An'I stop,an'I turn,an'I go for a ride
'Til I get the bottom
An'I see you again
Yeh

Do you,don't you,want me to make you ?
I'm coming down fast
But don't let me break you
Tell me,tell me
Tell me your answer
Well,you may be a lover
But you ain't no dancer
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter

(Helter Skelter yeh)
