"Happy Blue" (1998)

Happy Blues Lyrics – Billy Squier

I don't wanna be happy
if happy means I got to be like you
I don't wanna be happy
if happy means I got to be like you
Wake up in the mornin'
try to satisfy somebody new
You make it sound so sweet
why do I always feel so sad
Make it sound so sweet
why do I always feel so sad
All the time I keep wonderin'
whatever happened to the love I never had
I could be satisfied
if you would never ever call my name
I could be satisfied
if you would never ever call my name
I'm tired of your down-lookin'
and I don't wanna play this losin' game
I don't wanna be happy
if happy means I got to be your friend
I don't wanna be happy
if happy means I got to be your friend
Take all I got to give -
leave me out here on my own again

The Pursuit Of Happiness Lyrics – Billy Squier

If you want love
you gotta love somebody
If you wanna be happy
stand in line
If you're feelin' lost
you better find somebody
And if you're lookin' for truth
don't tell lies
If you don't want problems
walk away (walk away)
If you hurt somebody
you know you're gonna have to pay
If you don't wanna dance
don't strut your stuff
And if you don't like fightin'
don't play rough
Day in, day out
they will wear you down
Choose or lose
they turn your blues to brown
Float upstream as all your dreams go down
If you need somebody
you gotta let them know
It's all right - don't be afraid
to let it all let go
And it's all right
if you wanna be free
And if you can't love somebody
let them be
Daytime, nightime,
lonely lifetime bound
Miles and miles of hopeful smiles
turned round
Float serene while all your dreams go down
If you're diggin' for gold
you gotta work real hard
Fly over the moon
you gotta go real far
If your heart say "Yes"
then don't say "No"
And if you find what you're after
don't let go
Day in, day out
they will let you down
Miles and miles of hopeful smiles
turned round
Daytime, nightime,
lonely lifetime bound
Float upstream as all your dreams go down
You gotta love somebody - better find someone

She Will Lyrics – Billy Squier

Men who can't love are so predictable
Break your heart like they cross the street
Show you their wounds and make you vulnerable
Make you feel they really need you
Men who can't love will win you over
Casanova, he had a plan
Run you round, then he run you over
Run you out, maybe come back again
He will lead you to the higher ground
Tell you secrets that will make you whole
Leave an address where he can't be found
And a promise that will leave you cold
But he will feed you if you come around
Men who can't love will leave you lonely
Grow so distant, and be downright mean
And if you ask him, "Can we talk about it?"
He will answer, "Let's not make a scene"
Men who can't love hate to admit it
Make you wonder if it's all your fault
Women who fall have got their reasons
Make you guilty cause they love too much
If you tell him you could fall for him
He will say he doesn't want you to
And if you tell him you don't wanna go with him
He will make you feel it's somethin' you should do
He will make it so you just can't win
He will call you when you're almost home
Drag his voice across your mainline
Tell you everything'll be different
Just when you thought you had an answer
Women who love, you best be careful
Hide your purpose with your charity
Women who love - they make me nervous
Stay away, child, don't you mess with me
He will leave you out in "Nowhereland"
Searchin' for a man you never knew
You're a stranger in a foreign land
And there's nothin' that a girl can do
He will lead you out to "No Man's Land"
Start a fire that you can't control
Lay a minefield of impossible demands
Cross a border that you can't patrol
And tell you everything is in your hands

Grasping For Oblivion Lyrics – Billy Squier

Cezanne, the unloved prophet, found a dignity
the grace in everyone
He packed his reverence and his paints and went
where no one else had gone
Such a lone-strung man was he
Solitary vision, dyin' to break free
And I hear the voices when you call
see the hero where you fall
You're the reason why I can't get old
You're the reason why I run
you're the reason why I come
I will be forever grasping your oblivion
Picasso in his world ruled over everything
there was no other way
How else could he face the Dons of history
and brush them all away
Such a potent man was he
Scandalized by nothing - perhaps what only he could see
[chorus]
A man is just a man until he finds himself
as part of something more
And even then he stops to ask himself
what it is he came here for
Such a wondering soul is me
Sure of barely nothing - except for my uncertainty
[chorus]

If You Would Hate Me Less, I’d Love You More Lyrics – Billy Squier

I'm havin' a daydream - Thinkin' of how it might have been
if we had not gone and lost our way (reads like a tragedy)
More than a memory - I have lost a part of me
I'd only just begun to know (and it's taken such a long time)
Your daggers wound me deeply
but if you would hurt me less I'd soothe you more
I would give myself so cheaply
if you could hate me less I'd love you more
Sister have mercy - come to me, take my hand
I am such a long way from home (and I'm cryin' out)
Love is a mystery - as the silent scream of loneliness
is ever wont to know
Does suspicion rule unending
if you'd only doubt me less I'd trust you more
There's no use in our pretending
but if you would hate me less I'd love you more
Fear is the enemy - hurt and anger take their toll
they leave their mark on you (they mark me too)
Immune to your feelings - consciousness is blockin' the door
did I tell you you are not alone
You're so anxious to condemn me
but if you would judge me less I'd serve you more
I don't want you to defend me
but if you could hate me less I'd love you more
Do you have to be so angry
if you'd only ask for less I'd give you more
Do you really wanna hang me
if you would hate me less I'd love you more

Stroke Me Blues Lyrics – Billy Squier

Say everybody - have you heard
If you're in the game, then the stroke's the word
Don't take no rhythm, don't take no style
Got a thirst for killin' - grab your vial...
Put your right hand out - give a firm handshake
Talk to me about that one big break
Spread your ear-pollution both far and wide
Keep your contributions by your side
Stroke me, stroke me
Could be a winner boy, you move quite well
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you're a winner, but man, you're just a sinner now
Put your left foot out - keep it all in place
Work your way right into my face
First you try to bed me - you make my backbone slide
When you find you bled me, skip on by
Stroke me, stroke me
Give me the business all night long
Stroke me, stroke me
Say you're a winner, but man, you're just a sinner now
Better listen now - it ain't no joke
Let your conscience fail ya - just do the stroke
Don'tcha take no chances - keep your eye on top
Do your fancy dances - you can't stop
Stroke me, baby - stroke me all night long
Stroke me, baby - like my back ain't got a bone
Could be a winner boy, you move quite well
Say you're a winner, but man, you're just a sinner now

More Than Words Can Say Lyrics – Billy Squier

More than words can say
or the sweetest song that I can play
More than words can say
I love you now
More than you may know
from the simple ways I try to show you
More than words can say
I love you now
They can take you where they want
Will they bring you back
They can give you what they want
They can't give you everything
Walkin' down the road
far away from home
Many miles to go
but it's all right
So much work to do
before my day is through
But when I think of you
my spirits fly
They can hurt you if they want
How are you to know
Desert yo when you need them most
I will be there constantly
More than words can say
or the sweetest song that I can play
More than words can say...
But if I can't reach you now
what am I to do
If I can't reach you now
I will reach out constantly
More than words can say
or the sweetest song that I can play
More than words can say
try hard as I may
More than words can say
more with every passing day
More than words can say
I love you now

Inferno (Everybody Cries Sometimes) Lyrics – Billy Squier

Started out at the break of dawn
Braved the woods fro the light of day
With a smile and a dream and a hope so warm
Half way home I had lost my way
Here in my world I circle round and round
Here in my world it's a long way down
I look up to the sky
I reach down in my heart where my feet tread on
emptiness wherever I go
Where a good man will fall and a sinner may rise above
but one destiny we all will know
Everybody cries sometimes
Everybody hurts so bad
Tell me 'bout your hard times baby
I already been through that
Tamed three beasts who would do me harm
Sought a wise man to lead me to...
Put my strength on a woman's arm
That ancient glory won't see you through
Here in my world fortune's wheel spins round
Here in my world I'm neither up nor down
Every virtue is sin set to rupture when doubt
makes it easy to sacrifice the god you know
There's no comfort within - only pleasure without
as you realize there's one more circle yet to go
Everybody cries sometimes
Everybody's got their cross to bear
Spit up all your hard luck baby
Life can treat you so unfair
Catch you when you're not aware
Cache your valuables in the vault
Choose your morals or loyalty
Humanity is your own damn fault
though it's not what we choose to be
Lack of hope breeds desire and you sacrifice
everything to satisfy the urge to know
Be you guilty of love, or a penchant to falsify
we don't go where we don't want to go
Everybody cries sometimes
Everybody moves so bad
Tell me 'bout your hard times baby
I already tried all that
Everybody...sometimes
gonna feel so sad
Have another drink my darlin'
Heaven knows I'll stand you that
Everybody...sometimes
gonna feel so sad
Everybody...one time
Lord knows I'll drink to that

Long Way To Fall Lyrics – Billy Squier

Off in the land of heroes and fables
a man would not think to decline
Wrapped in your arms I'd climb any mountain
but that's only half the climb
Follow the treasures of darkest desire
Dance with Medusa, but don't look in her eyes
It's a long, long way to fall - I won't go down
You took the wrong turn after all - I won't be there
Knowin' what I know - knowin' I got to go
Cause I don't believe
There was a time when I could forgive you
and laugh at those sad games we'd play
I always thought that you were the strong one
and you'd break the walls down one day
Follow the circle, you come round again
Land on my doorstep, but I can't let you in
It's a long, long way to fall - don't pull me down
You took the wrong turn after all - I won't be there
Knowin' what I know - showin' what doesn't show
knowin' what I know
That I don't believe
I didn't lie when I said that I loved you
but you couldn't hope to believe
You can't come home to claim what you squandered
I've barely got room for my grief
Heart of the mineshaft the sun never shines
Lost in a minefield you might as well be blind
It's a long, long way to fall - I won't go down
You took the wrong train after all - I won't be there
Knowin' what I know - knowin' I've got to go
knowin' what I know
That I don't believe, and I can't conceive
now I just can't see you no more

River Lyrics – Billy Squier

It's comin' on twilight, and all the world's at ease
They're pullin' down the curtains, sailin' off to sweet release
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
But me I'm not so quiet - I'm restless and I'm mean
I won't let you know I'm bleedin', that I'm crawlin on my knees
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry
I tried hard to help her, let her do as she pleased
And I loved her so naughty - made her weak in the knees
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
We're so hard to handle - we're selfish and we're sad
And we throw away those precious things we work so hard to have
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so deep I would swim away from time
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
Do we have to say goodbye
It's comin' on daybreak, and everyone's at peace
They're dreamin' bout deliverance from the wounds that will not cease
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
But me I'm not so lucky - I'm anxious and I'm lean
I've made a tone of money but I can't buy out this scene
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I skate away on
I have to say goodbye

Two Lyrics – Billy Squier

Happy birthday little man
On this night you are two
and I am far away, much farther than
I would ever be from you
You're my dearest little friend
and tonight I miss you more than most
as I rock myself, my arms my lonely cradle
Sometimes it makes me sad
yet always I'm glad for knowing you
Good night my little man
Thought mine you'll never truly be
I will watch you grow
and maybe someday you will know
how very, very much you mean to me
It's been a happy day
You've learned what presents are
But the greatest gift by far
is the presence that you bring
Sleep tight, my little man
and fill your days with wonder
of kites and sand castles and colored elephants
so many wondrous elements
Be safe and happy with your dreams
and smile that special smile that says
for all the world to see
"I see the world fro all it's meant to be
and know that all of it is meant for me"

"Tell The Truth" (1993)

Angry Lyrics – Billy Squier

Get your master key...open up your doors
Set your servants free...they won't come no more
Wrapped my life in chains...gave my everything
Learned to feel no pain...now everyday I wake up

ANGRY...ANGRY I said
ANGRY...ANGRY I said

You pack me in your car...you drive my life away
But you only go so far...won't take me all the way
I tried so hard to please...take my place in line
Begged you on my knees...now all I got makes me

ANGRY...ANGRY I said
ANGRY...ANGRY I said

Your mantle's 'bout to fall
Your grip's gonna come undone
Nobody hear you call...no flowers from anyone
I'm gettin' down off the rack...I'm takin' this baby back

ANGRY...

I've wasted too much time
I'm gettin' down off the rack
I'm packin' up all my crimes...and I ain't comin' back
Your mantle's 'bout to fall...your mantle's bound to fall
No heaven after all...no heaven after all

ANGRY...no heaven after all
ANGRY...no one to break your fall
ANGRY...no heaven after all
ANGRY...no heaven after all

Tryin' To Walk A Straight Line Lyrics – Billy Squier

Are you lookin' for adventure...are you lookin' at me
Are you gettin' enough...do you wanna break free
Look over your shoulder...you're one step older
Now I said to myself "Self, there must be more than this"
I wanna know...I gotta step back from the fast-track heart-attack
Can you stand up tall...you know it's not an easy thing

Tryin' to walk a straight line

Would you get up and fight when it all goes south
Would you dare to be right in the shadow of doubt
Resist temptation...ya face the nation
When you know what you know...can you still say 'no'
C'mon...gotta get smart--make a new start--do your part
Turn it inside out...no it's not an easy thing

Tryin' to walk a straight line...try to be good to me

See the future walk past...now she's too daze gone
And the first will be last (lookout)...sing that same sad song
Behave your voice...behave your ass
Get into your cult...be good to yourself
Turn it inside out...you know it's not an easy thing

Tryin' to walk a straight line
