"To Be" as written by and Benmont M./petty Tench....
We were talking, just the other day
About small time things how we love to play
But the talk soon drifted to the darker things in life
And you mentioned, how your world had changed
When you found out how my worlds arranged
Well I guess my sin is not knowing when to lie

'Cause I'll never be, never be, what you want me to be
I'll never see, never see what you want me to see
And I know now, it's all just lost in your eyes
No I'll never be, never be what you want me to be
Never see, never see, what you want me to see
And I know now it's all just lost in your eyes
In your lies

I saw a picture of you and me
And it all rushed back how it used to be
All those feelings that were gospel such a long time ago
And I thought to myself that I wanted you back
But I know in my mind that it's only a trap
Well I guess those feelings are better just left alone

You know, when it all comes down to it, maybe we were just too much alike
But I know, when it comes down to it I guess it doesn't really matter
It's over

    General CommentThe lyrics aren't quite right:

    Pick it up!

    I tied on my boots and strapped down my braces
    Gonna go out and meet some new faces.
    Went to the store to buy some dark gin,
    and now I know my night's ready to begin.
    A dozen friends in a big 'ol car,
    my '62 Buick needn't take us too far.
    Out for the night, gonna be so rude,
    Gonna rule this town before the night is through.

    In Grand Rapids, there's nothing to do.
    When you're down it's the same way too.
    Gotta get up, do the best that you can.
    To be a fool, is to be a man.

    Now I walk to the party with the big 'ol keg.
    They said the way I drank, they thought I had a hollow leg.
    Standing around, starting to groove,
    with cup in hand I think I'll plot my next move.
    I see a pretty girl giving me a wink
    tonight she will be mine, or so I think.
    Such a fool I am, should not have overlooked
    'cause her eyes were only bothered by the smoke.

    Pick it up!

    Well I went to Denny's to buy me some food,
    said it's the only place that can put me in the mood.
    I order my fries and they always come late,
    but the way they taste I think I'd rather eat the plate.
    But I'm still with my friends, still having fun
    talking shit how night is still young.
    I'll bet they'll watch me drink as much as I'm able,
    And now they laugh, I'm passed out on the table.
