LYRICS

Side One

1. LOOSE – sung by Jason

Words and Music by Craig Martin

I like it loose baby
Don’t need a girl to set me free
In the caboose baby
I ride behind and let it be
I just want the lights shining on me

I like it fast baby
You got me running out of gears
Don’t try to pass baby
Just watch my tail lights disappear

You think you know me because i look like a rock star
You think i’m wild – that I’m wicked and whacked
I’m gonna rearrange
And treat it like an oil change
Ao take me to the rocket range
And load the heart attack ack ack ack ack
Alright

I like it loose baby
Don’t need a girl to set me free
That’s the truth baby
Just keep those lights right her on me

Just shine on me
Just shine on me
Shine on me
Ah – Shine on me!

2. GLORY – sung by The Upstart, The Veteran and Jason

Words and music by Craig Martin

Upstart
Pretty boy you’re a sexy toy
Soaking up the glory
Let me help the story move along
Sign with me we’ll make history
The time is now the world needs to hear your song

Veteran
I won’t be the fool that rushes in
I wanna be the light you wear like skin
How do i begin?

Jason
They want a piece of me but they will never see
Vulnerability and change
You see i love the lights
And i love the fights
The money – the glory and fame – the beautiful fame

Sign on the fine line
And fight for the right time
To shine like a diamond
Aligned within a story of dreams
ON a new stage
That sing for a new phase
Of life and it’s glory or failure
But that’s another story

3. TRANSITION

4. WE WERE MEANT TO BE – sung by The Diva

Words and music by Craig Martin

There’s a time and place for everything
And a time to take it slow
I tried to tell you
No you didn’t
Yes i did
No you didn’t
Yes i did
I can’t mess around with the flow

Cause if i stay here long enough
Waiting for the one
The one who loves you
The one who rearranges my clock
You’re a fool
Just a fool
I know it i know i think i’m losing my mind
I wanna tell him all my secrets just let yourself go
I wanna kiss him in a tunnel just let yourself go
I wanna be his tattoo just let yourself go
I’m gonna try but i think it’s best to stop

We were meant to be
l’m gonna let myself go…

5. CHANGE – sung by The Diva

Words and music by Craig Martin

Over and over again
He’s always away solving my problems
I don’t know where to begin
Maybe i love him
Maybe i’ll drop him
I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming I’m dreaming

We should of learned to swim
Or reached for the hand that would save us from drowning
What am i doing with him?
He’ll never sell me
He’ll never tell me
I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming I’m dreaming

I’ll follow the money
And save it for when
I’m finally done with the game
I finally found
If i follow the sound
I’ll change

I know i’m gonna change
For reasons i’ll never explain

6. RAP1 – sung by The Rapper

Words and music by Craig Martin

7. SECRETARY – sung by Belle

Words and music by Craig Martin

Hallways and tight ropes
Parachutes and law
Tiny lights on cell phones
This is no place for a star

I ain’t no secretary
Waiting my turn for nothing to learn
There’s one executive decision to be made
About a feeling that i’ve saved
A major note i’ve got to play
Not a minor role

Reaching and learning
Yearning and pain
Swing on a space star
Never come down again

I ain’t no secretary
Waiting my turn for nothing to learn
There’s one executive decision to be made
About a feeling that i’ve saved
A major note i’ve got to play
Not a minor role

8. WHO KILLED ROCK AND ROLL?

9. GROUPIE

10. LOVE SONG

11. JASON WAKE UP

12. PAINKILLER  – sung by Belle

Words and music by Craig Martin

I was a freak
They called me a geek
Said i couldn’t speak my mind
All the things i wanted i’d never find
No one can know
I’m keeping it low
I’m a small town girl at heart
I wear this disguise to keep from falling apart

Painkiller – under the lights
They take away my pain
Painkiller – i’m ready to fight
I’ll sing away my pain

Over and over super nova
That’s the plan for me
The lights and glitter a taste of the bitter
A fading legacy
I feel the calling
And now I’m not stalling
You drop what you got and you go
You weather the storm and you make it to the show

Painkiller – under the lights
They take away my pain
Painkiller – i’m ready to fight
I’ll sing away my pain

13. END OF ACT 1

Side Two

14. THINGS I GET FROM YOU – sung by Belle

Words and music by Craig Martin

In this time of narcissistic greed
I separate the things I want and need
I don’t need a new Mercedes
I don’t need a shrink to save me
I don’t need a crutch to see it through
I just want the things I get from you

Philosophy and time alone with books
I read ’em once don’t take another look
Don’t talk to god to heal my soul
If i had a god then I’d let him go
Unless he promised me something new and true
And gave me all the things I get from you

Connected to the world wide interfaith
Where legends lie and profits lose their faith
I don’t want no primal screaming
I don’t need a pot to pee in
I don’t want a changing point of view
I just want the things I get from you

15. PRESS SONG

16. BELLE PHONE CALL

17. TIME FOR A CHANGE – sung by Belle

Words and music by Craig Martin

How can i express my feelings
You’re the one that i believe in
If i tell you my secrets
Would you use them against me
Could it get that cruel

I paint my face, I paint my nails
Will you be there when i’m old and frail
I understand the timeless beauty of breaking the rules

Don’t you think that maybe it’s time for change?
Don’t you think that maybe it’s time for a change?
Don’t you think that maybe this could be you?

Because I sing the notes that will follow your soul
Through the dark and glory
Through the rumble and roll
The vulnerable secrets that we share
In the corners of the music and lights

I don’t want you to think i’m a charity case
Or a alien angel falling from grace
I want you to be me just for tonight

Don’t you think that maybe it’s time for a change?
Don’t you think that maybe it’s time for a change?
Don’t you think that maybe this could be you?

18. THREE BUTTONS

19. STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU – sung by The Diva

Words and music by Craig Martin

Baby, my only memory
Is when you swore that you would never leave
But we wore away a layer of skin
And tore away the very thing
That kept me hanging onto you
But you light the fire that burns my desire
I guess I never figured out the things I always knew
‘Cause I’ll never show how much letting go
Made me what I am today – focused and confused
And still in love with you

I watch the memory float away as I meet you in some french cafe
Necessary pleasantries exchanged
Now i only harbour two regrets:
One i forgot my cigarettes
And the second one I never could explain
Friends say I’m wrong to sing you in this song
But i can’t fight the feeling that comes with being blue
So i’ll wear a smile yet thinking all the while
There’s just no beginning to saying that we’re through
Still in love with you

My love
My love

20. YESTERDAY WAS OVER YESTERDAY – sung by The Diva

Words and music by Craig Martin

No more killing time
No fading into mirrors
No more reaching behind
I got a plan now
I’m seeing things clearer
Time to figure out what I can find

I won’t remember the years of preparation
I won’t remember the road
Don’t take it personal or confuse it with temptation
Just let me get me get on with the show

Yesterday was over, yesterday was over
Yesterday was over yesterday
Tomorrow better get out of the way
I’m breaking through
And i’m doing it without you

Baby don’t wait around for my revolving heart
Let it spin in the colour of change
I don’t want to wait around to watch you fall apart
I’m not taking on any blame

I can’t change my desire or ambition
I can’t change my drive
So if you’ve lost the cost of your admission
I hope you make it out alive

Yesterday was over yesterday…

21. GROUPIE PHONE CALL

22. SEASONS OF MY LIFE – sung by Jason

Words and music by Craig Martin

Kiss you in a doorway
Rain sounds like applause
Vulnerable and wanting
Makes me kiss you hard

Yes is complicated
I’ve been patient and i’ve waited
Now it’s bombs away
As we hope and pray
To fight another day
No one hears the reasons
Walking through the seasons of my life

Back in our hotel room
We know just where we’re at
Struck with revelation
We’ll be needing different maps

Don’t make it over rated
Don’t make me want to hate it
And now its bombs away
As we hope and pray
To fight another day
Walking through the seasons of my life

23. I NEVER WANTED IT TO END – sung by Jason and The Groupie

Words and music by Craig Martin

I never wanted it to end
I never wanted it to come to a close
No, I don’t want to be your friend
I want to be the one that’s pulling you close

You never came when I was down
You never showed me your vulnerable side
It never rained but there were clouds
You came to be a thorn in my pride

I never wanted it to end
You should have let me let me love you
I never wanted it to come to a close
You should of let me need you
Just like a kiss I couldn’t send
I never wanted it to end
I saw you leaving there was nothing to do

I never wanted it to end
I never wanted it to come to a close
It’s just so easy to pretend
I never wanted it to come to a close

I never wanted it to end
I only wanted somebody to love
It’s just so easy to pretend
You’re the only one that i’m thinking of

24. CRAZY BABY – sung by The Groupie and Jason

Words and music by Craig Martin

If you believe in second chances
Than I can make you feel the need
To take my twisted headspace
And teach me to believe
I was pure like a baby
But i lost my way
But there was no one there to save me anyway
I was unapologetic, I was overplayed
Now i want forgiveness – stop throwing me away

Crazy baby – spinning my head around
You get me so high
My feet never ever touch the ground
You can call me neglected, you can call me bad
But in 22F yeah! – that’s my dad
I’m unapologetic, I don’t do sad
I was never a victim or easily had

You’re everything i want
You’re everything i need
Everything about you is the mirror of me
