Are you breaking my heart

Single: Are you breaking my heart - 1980

You go out to see the red
And you ain’t here
Sometimes you don’t come back
Leaving me waisted and wet
My heart’s not that bad
You come your way home to sleep
If you want something special
Oh you’ve got that in me

Well I need an explanation
Seems there’s no communication
What you doing here baby?
If you wanna leave

Are you breaking my heart? (4x)

I went down to the collar
To the liquor store
Has the music stops playing
I just can’t hear it no more
There’s just one question
That’s on my mind
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?

Are you keeping another secret?
I’ve got know from the start
What you’re trying to do baby?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Well now for your information
You can take it or leave
I can give you satisfaction
I’m eager to please
I’m in the streets gonna struck my star
Cause you have just given me
sure way enough

You’ve gotta make a decision
You’re wasting your time and mine
What you’re gonna do baby
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
You’ve got our lives on the line
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you breaking my heart?
Are you wasting my time?
Are you breaking my heart?

Hold on I'm coming

Single: Are you breaking my heart - 1980

Hot in the middle - hot in the seat
You did something to me that i can’t repeat
Time after time - you blow my mind
But i got the answer to the question this time

Well you’re not quite right
And you’re not quite wrong
Hooked on something and i’m gonna hold on

Chorus
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got

Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got

You give me feelings - that make me strong
One thing baby i can’t stay there long
Your temperature is what i need
Your thermostat is where i get my speed

Well you’re not quite right
And you’re not quite wrong
Hooked on something and i’m gonna hold on

Chorus
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got

Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got

Hit the spot and you’re hot to trot
An automatic lover if you’re ready or not
I don’t need no fantasy
Ooh you got everything i need
Well you’re not quite right
And you’re not quite wrong
Hooked on somethin’
Gonna hold on

Chorus
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on to what you got

Not quite right
You’re not quite wrong
Hooked on somethin’
And i’m gonna hold on

Chorus
Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got

Hold on - hold on to what you got
Hold on - hold on to what you got

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
