Who's gonna tell you when
It's too late?
Who's gonna tell you things
Aren't so great?

You can't go on
Thinking nothing's wrong, …
Who's gonna drive you home
Tonight? ~ "Drive", on Heartbeat City (1984)

Quotes[edit]

This Side of Paradise (1986)[edit]

  • Oh, there's got to be true love, true love
    True love just to make it
    Oh, there's got to be true love, true love
    True love just to take it.
  • Well you're looking for another end
    Doing time
    But you still can't turn away
    Well you're looking for a real friend
    Any kind
    That wants to play the games you play
    On this side of paradise
    Where you're never going to go through twice
    Stay tuned at any price
    To this side of paradise.
  • You've got to keep yourself well amused
    Pay no attention to the faulty news
    Set yourself on automatic cruise
    Sometimes you just got to lose
    On this side of paradise
    You're never going to go through twice
    Stay tuned at any price
    To this side of paradise.
    You're on this side of paradise.
    • "This Side of Paradise"
