Pat McCurdy Now!

Hang On


If the passion's gone and you feel ugly and mean
Hang on, hang on
If sex is just a part of your aerobic routine
Hang on, hang on

And I will be there as soon as I can
To remind you to count all your blessings

If you feel you've fallen down a bottomless hole
Hang on, hang on
If every day existence starts to suck out your soul
Hang on, hang on

And I'll come around as fast as I can
To remind you that life keeps us guessing
Yes it does and that's part of the fun
We are doing all right so far when all is said and done

Hang on, hang on
Hang on, hang on

And I won't delay, I'll be there right away
If you're needing to do some confessing

If your body's dangling off the edge of a cliff
Hang on, hang on
You won't plunge into the icy waterfall if
You hang on, hang on

And I will be there as soon as I can
To remind you that nothing's forever
Nothing is forever
Nothing is forever

Hang on, hang on
Hang on, hang on

And I will be there



Reason To Live


I got a reason to live
To wake up every day
Put on these fashionable clothes
And go on my merry way
I got a reason to do
The crazy things that I do
I got a reason to live
And it's you, you, you
Yeah, it's you, you, you

I got a reason to live
To face the world with a smile
I wish that everyone could
Stand in my shoes for a while
I like to sing in the rain
Dance down the avenue
I got a reason to live
And it's you, you, you
Yeah, it's you, you, you

Now am I just a hopeless dreamer?
Yeah, that's my story
Is that an electric eel?
No, that's a moray

I got a reason to do
The crazy things that I do
I got a reason to live
And it's you, you, you
Yeah, it's you, you, you

I got a reason to live
I don't just sit here and mope
If at the end of the day
You're at the end of your rope
Then you should end up with me
I think it's time that you knew
I got a reason to live
And it's you-know-who
Yeah, it's you, you, you
Yeah, it's you, you, you

I got a reason to live
And it's you
I got a, I got a, I got a reason to live
And it's you
I got a, I got a, I got a reason to live
And it's you
It's you



Love Is On The Rise


In my life I must have said
A thousand sad goodbyes
But now I'm saying hello instead
Love is on the rise

Love comes and goes, comes back again
It disappears and dies
But everyone can feel it when
Love is on the rise

The rain will fall and wash away
All our so-called sins
The clouds will pass, the sun will shine
A new day will begin

I'm hoping I can take away
The sadness in your eyes
And maybe make you smile someday
Love is on the rise

The rain will fall and wash away
All our so-called sins
The clouds will pass, the sun will shine
A new day will begin

I'm hoping I can take away
The sadness in your eyes
And maybe make you smile someday
Love is on the rise

And maybe make you smile someday
Love is on the rise



La Di Da


I like coffee, you like tea
I like A, baby, you like B
I like you, maybe you like me
La di da, la di da, la di da

I like whiskey and you like beer
I like blood, you like sweat and tears
I'm so happy that you're still here
La di da, la di da, la di da
La di da, la di da, la di da

A plastic rose in a crystal vase
Designer clothes in an old suitcase
A broken nose on a pretty face
That's what we are when we're together
So we must never be apart

I like water and you like wine
I'm so fucked up and you're so fine
I'm so glad knowing you are mine
La di da, la di da, la di da

I like cola and you like rum
I'm all fingers and you're all thumbs
I've got nothing and you've got some
La di da, la di da, la di da
La di da, la di da, la di da

A plastic rose in a crystal vase
Designer clothes in an old suitcase
A broken nose on a pretty face
That's what we are when we're together
So we must never be apart

I like summer and you like spring
I like vibrate and you like ring
I'm no angel and you've got wings
La di da, la di da, la di da

I like Paris and you like Rome
I like Fairbanks and you like Nome
We have never been that far from home
La di da, la di da, la di da
La di da, la di da, la di da

La di da, la di da, la di da



My Old Suburban Home


The high school girls are dressed like whores
Through the mall they roam
They got no use for discount stores
In my old suburban home

They drink their frothy coffee drinks
Lattes topped with foam
The streets are clean but something stinks
In my old suburban home

In my old suburban home
The streets are clean but something stinks
In my old suburban home

Meet me at the mega-church
With the gold cross on the dome
Money buys a lofty perch
In my old suburban home

And if you're looking for diversity
Better use a fine tooth comb
There are no minorities
In my old suburban home

In my old suburban home
There are no minorities
In my old suburban home

But there's lots of shopping opportunities
Gates surrounding our communities
No one seems to be having too much fun
So there's anti-depressants for everyone

And everyone's Republican
It's in our chromosomes
We're looking out for number one
In my old suburban home

It's kind of boring, kind of bland
Kind of monochrome
The Lord has touched us with His hand
In my old suburban home

In my old suburban home
The Lord has touched us with His hand
In my old suburban home

Everybody sing!
In my old suburban home
The Lord has touched us with His hand
In my old suburban home



True Lover


Don't know what I'm doing
Don't know what I'm thinking
Don't know if it's morning, noon or night

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know why I'm running
Don't know if it's dark or if it's light

Don't know how to tell you
Don't know what to say
I don't have the slightest clue

But you know I am your true lover
I am your true lover
I am your true lover
My love is true

How can I convince you
Talk some sense into you
Tell me, what am I supposed to do

I would never hurt you
Compromise your virtue
That is, unless you really want me to

I don't need lots of money
But I need your heart
I guess I'll take some money too

'Cause you know I am your true lover
I am your true lover
I am your true lover
My love is true

Now can't you hear
The beating of my heart now
Can't you hear
The beating of my heart now
Can't you hear
The beating of my heart now
Can't you hear it
Can't you hear it
Can't you hear it
Can't you hear it

Don't know what I'm doing
Don't know what I'm thinking
Don't know if I'm up or if I'm down

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know why I'm running
Don't know why I'm heading out of town

'Cause I would never leave you
I would never treat you
Like some of those others do

Don't you know I am your true lover
I am your true lover
I am your true lover
My love is true

I am your true lover
I am your true lover
I am your true lover
My love is true

My love is true

Can't you hear
The beating of my heart now
Can't you hear
The beating of my heart now
Can't you hear
The beating of my heart now

My love is true



How To Have Fun


A table full of people
Staring at their phones
If this is conversation
I'd rather eat alone

They sure know how to have fun
They sure know how to get it done
They sure know how to have fun
How can they stand the excitement?

Sitting at a Starbucks
Poking at a screen
Everybody's buzzing
It must be the caffeine

They sure know how to have fun
They sure know how to get it done
They sure know how to have fun
How can they stand the excitement?

It's Saturday at your house
A half a glass of wine
You're cleaning out the cat box
And fast asleep by nine

You sure know how to have fun
Real good times for everyone
You sure know how to have fun
How can you stand the excitement?

You don't need to go out
You don't need to roam
You've got the kinds of friends
That don't ever leave their home

You sure know how to have fun
Real good times for everyone
You sure know how to have fun
How can you stand the excitement?

Now everything you do and
Everywhere you go
You're sharing information
That no one wants to know

You sure know how to have fun
You sure know how to get it done
You sure know how to have fun
How can you stand it?

I said, how can you stand it?
How can you stand the excitement?
How can you stand the excitement?
How can you stand the excitement?

I guess you sure know how to have
Sure know how to have
Sure know how to have fun



My Life is Nothing Without You


I wish that I could change what's in my DNA
Then maybe I could be a better man someday
'Cause I do stupid things and never really learn
I sit here wondering, will you come back or is that bridge burned

My life is nothing without you
My life is nothing and it's true
My world is empty and there's nothing I can do
My life is nothing without you

I roam around the house and wish that you were here
Who's that loser looking at me in the mirror
And I don't mean it but I hope you're happy now
Another message you won't listen to, but anyhow

My life is nothing without you
My life is nothing and it's true
Where did out love go, oh I really wish I knew
My life is nothing without you

So I'll just take a dirty glass out of the sink
I do believe it's time to have a drink
And maybe later on I'll call you up again
And maybe this time you might talk to me, until then

My life is nothing without you
My life is nothing and it's true
I told you lots of stupid lies, but this is true
My life is nothing without you

My life is nothing without you
It's nothing without you



Real Prince Charming


I woke up this morning
A mouth full of sand
An empty whiskey bottle
Clutched in my hand

Two teeth were missing
My shoes were gone
I had some ugly bruises
And a pair of handcuffs on

I think I could make you happy
Make you smile most all the time
I could be a real Prince Charming
And everything will be so fine

I got some nasty habits
I got some scary friends
I got confusion in my head
And it never ends

I don't have any money
I don't know where it goes
Sometimes I wake up wearing
Someone else's clothes

I think I could make you happy
Make you smile most all the time
I think we should be together
And everything will be so fine

I think I could satisfy you
I'd be home almost every night
I could be a real Prince Charming
And everything will be all right

Everything will be all right

I think I could make you happy
Make you smile most all the time
I think we should be together
And everything will be so fine

I think I could satisfy you
I'd be home almost every night
I could be a real Prince Charming
And everything will be all right

Everything will be all right
Everything will be all right
Everything will be all right
Everything will be all right



Everybody Wants Love


Nobody wants a book if they know how it ends
Nobody wants to look like a fool in front of all their friends
Nobody wants a shirt if the buttons are gone
Nobody wants dessert if the dinner's too long

But everybody wants love
Everybody wants love
Everybody wants love

Nobody wants a boat with a hole in the floor
Nobody wants a quote that they've heard a thousand times before
Nobody wants a smile if it isn't sincere
Nobody wants a style if it comes from last year

But everybody wants love
Everybody wants love
Everybody wants love

They want love

Nobody wants to stay if the party's moved on
Nobody wants a day if it's only 23 hours long
Nobody wants a dream if it never comes true
Nobody wants to scream 'til their face turns blue

But everybody wants love
Everybody wants love
Everybody wants love

Everybody wants love
Everybody wants love
Everybody got to have love

They want love
Love, love, love



My Troubles


Got a black eye in a bar fight
On a bad night in July
My highlights and my lowlights
Passed right before my eyes
By the end of September
I intended to be home
I was still here at New Year's
In tears and all alone

But you don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
My advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone

I was sleeping like a baby
When a crowd crashed through the door
I was thinking this may be
The sign I was looking for
Then a choir of angels
Came winging around my head
They grabbed me by the ankles
And they dragged me out of bed

But you don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
My advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone

Now there are powerful people
Who take all they can steal
Elected officials
Who think science isn't real
There's leaders of religion
Who tolerate the obscene
So I'm not the saddest vision
That you have ever seen

But you don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone

You don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
My advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone



As Long As I Have You


Times are tough, things look bleak
We may not be here next week
Don't tell me, I know that this is true

We're filled with fear, we're filled with doubt
That all our money will run out
I don't care as long as I have you

As long as we're together we can face whatever comes
We're the lucky ones because we make each other so happy

So don't give up, but don't forget
We may not have hit bottom yet
I don't care as long as I have you

As long as we're together we can face whatever comes
We're the lucky ones because we make each other so happy

So don't give up, but don't forget
We may not have hit bottom yet
I don't care as long as I have you

I don't care as long as I have you
I don't care as long as I have you

As long as I have you
As long as I have you
As long as I have you



Different Man


What do I have to do
To keep our love alive
I put away my pride
Why won't you look at me

What do I have to do
To make you understand
And I'm a different man
Than the one I used to be

What do I have to do
What do I have to do

What do I have to do
That I haven't already done
To show you I'm the one
Why must you be so blind

And what do I have to say
That I haven't already said
Get inside your head
And try to change your mind

And what do I have to do
What do I have to do

What do I have to do
Won't you tell me please
I'm begging on my knees
I know it must seem strange

What do I have to do
To make you understand
That I'm a different man
Everything has changed

What do I have to do
What do I have to do
What do I have to do
What do I have to do



Hold On Tight


Snow and sleet and rain might fall
The sunlight might destroy us all
Into your eyes cold winds might blow
Just hold on tight and don't let go

Money comes and money goes
The petals fall off every rose
Our fortunes, they will ebb and flow
Just hold on tight and don't let go

Every time I see you, I get high
Oh my
There you are
Every time I look up in the sky
I
Count the stars and there you are

Summer, autumn, winter, spring
Who knows what tomorrow will bring
Any, I don't want to know
Just hold on tight and don't let go

Every time I see you, I get high
Oh my
There you are
Every time I look up in the sky
I
Count the stars and there you are

Summer, autumn, winter, spring
Who knows what tomorrow will bring
Any, I don't want to know
Just hold on tight and don't let go

Hold on tight and don't let go
Hold on tight and don't let go
Don't let go, don't let go
Don't let go, don't let go
