Lyrics SOMEDAY,
SOMEWAY
YOU'LL REALIZE
THAT YOU'VE BEEN BLIND.
YES, DARLING
YOU'RE GONNA NEED ME AGAIN.
IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME.
GO ON,
GO ON
'TIL YOU REACH
THE END OF THE LINE.
'CAUSE I KNOW
YOU'LL PASS MY WAY AGAIN.
IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME.

AFTER I GAVE YOU
EV'RYTHING I HAD,
YOU LAUGHED
AND CALLED ME A CLOWN.
REMEMBER IN YOUR SEARCH
FOR FORTUNE AND FAME,
WHAT GOES UP
MUST COME DOWN.

I KNOW,
I KNOW
THAT ONE DAY
YOU'LL WAKE UP
AND FIND
THAT MY LOVE
IS A TRUE LOVE.
IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME.

Lyrics IF YOU'RE GONNA GIVE ME
GOOD KISSES LIKE THAT
HONEY, DON'T YOU KNOW
I'M GONNA GIVE 'EM
RIGHT BACK,
'CAUSE
THAT'S A KISSIN' GOOD WAY,
THAT'S A KISSIN' GOOD WAY,
THAT'S A KISSIN' GOOD WAY
TO MESS AROUND
AND FALL IN LOVE.

IF YOU'RE GONNA START OUT
HUGGIN' ME TIGHT,
DON'T MESS AROUND
JUST HUG ME RIGHT,
'CAUSE
THAT'S A HUGGIN' GOOD WAY,
THAT'S A HUGGIN' GOOD WAY,
THAT'S A HUGGIN' GOOD WAY
TO MESS AROUND
AND FALL IN LOVE.

YOU KNOW YOU CALLED ME
ON THE PHONE
AND JUST BECAUSE
I WAS ALONE
YES,
YOU CAME AROUND AWOOING
YOU BETTER ASK SOMEBODY
IF YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

NOW THAT YOU'VE KISSED ME
AND ROCKED MY SOUL,
DON'T COME AROUND
KNOCKIN' ROCK AND ROLL,
'CAUSE
THAT'S A ROCKIN' GOOD WAY,
THAT'S A ROCKIN' GOOD WAY,
THAT'S A ROCKIN' GOOD WAY
TO MESS AROUND AND FALL IN LOVE.
