Since you've been gone, girl.
Said that, I've been so all alone, girl.
You've got me afraid, afraid to close my eyes.
Each time I do it's you I visualize.

Baby, baby, I can see you walking away. (Walking away, girl)
Just like you did that day, girl. (Did that day, girl)
The same hurt that I felt when we parted.
Baby, baby, once again I started.

So don't you know that I (I gotta find a way)
Oh, I gotta find a way. (to get you back, girl)
Oh (I'm so lonely)

Nights I can't sleep, girl.
I tell you without ya, I'm weak girl.
Listen, not one single day, day goes by.
Can I wake up without tear-filled eyes.

Listen, I'm very seldom leave my lonely room. (Leave my lonely room, girl) (?)
'Cause without ya my life is filled with gloom. (Filled with gloom, girl)
There is no inch of the tears that I shed.
Girl, I'm slowly going out of my head.

So don't you know that I've (I gotta find a way)
Ooo, gotta get you back. (to get you back, girl)
Oh yeah. (I'm so lonely)
I gotta get ya back, girl.

(Gotta find a way to get you back, oh baby.)
(Gotta find a way to get you back, oh baby.)

Oh, girl, I, girl, girl, oh
Now when I'm out walking.
Huh girl, I always wind up on your street.
Look it here, I'm just a broken hearted guy.
In a dark and lonely world.
In need of a love you took from me.

Baby, baby all I do is think about you, baby. (Thinking about you)
It's a cold, lonely world without you. (Cold world without you)
Girl, my heart ain't getting no stronger.
I just can't carry on very much longer.

So don't you know that I (I gotta find a way)
Oh (to get you back, girl)
Got to get you back.
I, I, I, I (I'm so lonely)

I gotta get you back. (I gotta find a way to get you back)
Oh baby, baby (Oh, baby)
I gotta get you back. (I gotta find a way to get you back)
Woo, look it here. (Oh, baby)

I got to find a way to get you back (girl)
Woo (I'm so lonely)
I gotta find a way. (I gotta find a way to get you back)
Oh baby, baby, baby (Oh, baby)

I gotta find a way. (I gotta find a way to get you back)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (Oh, baby)
I got to find a way to get you back (girl)
Oh, oh (I'm so lonely)

He certainly did earn that reputation.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
