Told You So

Instinctively Wrong

(Reiter / Strauss)

Whenever there's a choice to be made
I'm messin' up 'cos failure is my trade
It doesn't seem to matter what I choose
Whatever card I play I'm bound to lose
Instinctively wrong, I’m instinctively wrong

If you need to make a wrong decision
I can help you out with incredible precision
It's not a whole big deal for me, you see
'Cos I'm just doing what comes naturally
Instinctively wrong, I’m instinctively wrong
Instinctively wrong, I’m instinctively wrong

You gotta use your instincts to survive
It's a downright wonder that I'm still alive
If you wanna know what's best for you
Just don't do as I say and don't do as I do
Instinctively wrong, I’m instinctively wrong
Instinctively wrong, I’m instinctively wrong...

Waiting For My Luck To Change

(Reiter)

I've come to the conclusion
That I really need to complain
There's just too much confusion
My life's going down the drain
Somebody tell me, is there anything I need to rearrange
'Cos I've been waiting, waiting for my luck to change

They say patience is a virtue
And Rome wasn't built in a day
But you know it wouldn't hurt to
See some progress right away
Everything I'm reaching for is out of my range
I'll keep on waiting, waiting for my luck to change

(bridge)
They say good things come to those who wait
Well if they don't come pretty soon it's gonna be too late
Maybe I got it all wrong
Now I'm in a hurry, and I'm beginning to worry
That I've been waiting too long

They tell me to keep going
'Cause it can take a long time
You know I was just wonderin'
If there was some kind of deadline
Or is there anything else I need to arrange
'Cos I'm tired of waiting, waiting for my luck to change

There must be something I'm missing
At least that's how I feel
If anyone is listening
Please tell me what's the deal
Between you and me, this is beginning to seem real strange
To just be sitting here waiting, waiting for my luck to change

I'm Givin' In

(Reiter / Jay)

I played the game of love and lost
I bet too much and paid the cost
I didn't know it's only played by fools
Now I'm broke and broken-down
I'm just another low-down clown
Who stakes his pay and doesn't know the rules
I'd bet it all
But I'm not able now
To go all in and throw it all away
My heart and soul
They're on the table now
But the only winning move is not to play

I'm givin' in
'Cause I just can't win
I lose again
I'm givin' in

I guess I ain't got what it takes
And I keep paying for my mistakes
Nothing ever plays out like I planned
Seems like it's never me who wins
'Cause everytime the game begins
I always seem to get the losin' hand
Now here I stand
And I'm on the brink of ruin
And in the end there's nothing left to show
I never knew
what I was doin'
But now I know there's just one way to go

I'm givin' in
'Cause I just can't win
I lose again
I'm givin' in

Out Of My Mind

(Reiter)

Ooh baby I've heard you we're running around
Couldn't believe a word of all that talk in town
But I guess they were right and what they said was true
'Cause I stayed up all night baby waiting for you
You never came home, I was all by myself
I guess I should've known you're out with somebody else
Girl you're just a waste of time, I must have been out of my mind

You got me wonderin' why this could come to an end
No matter how I try I don't seem to understand
Tell me how can it be, was it something that I said?
When you could've had me - why d'you wanna be with him instead?
I can't believe my eyes, it doesn't make sense
You were telling lies and laughing at my expense
Girl you're just a waste of time, I must have been out of my mind

You know I should be glad to get rid of you
No reason to be sad after all you put me thru
Now if only I'd known that you'd intend to hurt me so
I'd left you all alone a long time ago
I'll erase you from my memory and all your letters I'm gonna burn
Baby you are history as far as I'm concerned
Baby, you're a waste of time, I must have been out of my mind
You know it's your loss not mine, I must have been out of my mind

Can't Stop Thinking About You

(Reiter)

Last door down the hall
In a cold and lonely place
Staring at the wall
Trying to forget your face

I don't know what to do
I can't stop thinking about you

Feeling desperate and alone
In my room so dark and small
As I sit here by the phone
Waiting for your call

I don't know what to do
I can't stop thinking about you, no I can't no no
I can't stop thinking about you, you're always on my mind
I can't stop thinking about you

Tryin' to let go of the past
Is beyond my control
These memories will last
Deep down in my soul

I don't know what to do
I can't stop thinking about you, no I can't no no
I can't stop thinking about you, cos you're always on my mind
I can't stop thinking about you, you're always on my mind
I can't stop thinking about you ...

The Only Thing That's Wrong With You (Is Him)

(Reiter)

I went out last night
Looking for some action
You came into my sight
And you were close to perfection
Yeah baby
Anyone can see
The only thing that's wrong with you
Is you're with him and not with me

I know you are the one
You're the girl of my dreams
We should be having fun
It could be easy, but it seems
That baby
I need to come up with a plan
The only thing that's wrong with you
Is you got another man

(bridge)
Can't you tell we're a perfect fit
What were you seeing in that guy?
Now that I'm here, pretty baby let's split
And wave that last fool bye-bye

I'm not gonna try
To find a better girl
'Cos even if I searched
The whole wide world
Oh baby
I know my chances would be slim
Darling let me tell you the only thing
That was wrong with you was him

Take It Or Leave It

(Reiter / Jay)

Take it or leave it, that's it, my price is set
Take it or leave it, that's it, my price is set
All I got is all I offer, and what you see is what you get

Take it or leave it, I'll throw it all into the pot
Take it or leave it, I know it may not be a lot
But I'll throw it in the deal, my heart & soul and every little thing I got

I know you're undecided, baby, I tell you what I'm gonna do
I'll work all day and save my pay and give it to you too
Take it or leave it, this is what you're gonna get
It's too late to negotiate baby, and my price is set

Take it or leave it, that's is it my price is set
Take it or leave it, my price is set
It's too late to negotiate, all I got is all you're ever gonna get

Just A Little Too Much

(Reiter)

Hey baby, won't you come back home (2x)
'Cos I can't be strong too long
When I'm sitting here all alone

Hey baby, I miss your touch (2x)
I thought I was over you
But I miss you just a little too much

Hey baby, there ain't no other way (2x)
You got to come back home baby
And right here that's where you got to stay

Now I'm sitting here
Wishing you were near
But I'm here all alone
I didn't mean what I said
Talking all out my head
So baby won't you come back home
