Tony
Words and music by Alla Spina

You’re living like a superstar
And I can’t understand
Why it’s you and not me
With your name up in lights
I’m at the end of the line
I’m running out of time
This destiny is not me
I’m gonna get high

How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re more than just a pretty face
How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re so much more than I could be

You’re always there in my head
You’re running on my brain
Now all I do is complain
About my life
It’s such a shame
But now I know what I want
And it’s not gonna change
We’re gonna show you how to rock
And you’re the one to blame

How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re more than just a pretty face
How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re so much more than I could be

Now don’t say
It’s not me
That you wanna see
Now don’t say
You don’t know
Where you’d like me to go

How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re more than just a pretty face
How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re so much more than I could be

How do you do it?
You’re making me so jealous
You’ve really proved
That you’re so much more than I could be

How do you do it?
How do you do it?
Track Name: Cocaine Wedding
Cocaine Wedding
Words and Music by Alla Spina

I’ve always wanted enough money
For a cocaine wedding
Though I know it would be a mistake
Like it would be if I ever followed you
‘Cause I know that you’ll never change

And I don’t need this right now
You know that I’m leaving anyhow
Why are you doing this to me?
When we all want you to be free

So what are we doing here?
Why are you hiding what’s so clear
What are you waiting so long for?
‘Cause you need me and you want me
And I can show you what you’re looking for

I know I don’t have to by Champagne for you
But then again maybe that’s what it takes
I don’t ever wanna wear a mask for you
And I don’t want you to do the same

And maybe you’re finding all this out
That’s it’s all meaningless somehow
When we’re both driving late at night
And nobody’s losing any fight

So what are we doing here?
Why are you hiding what’s so clear
What are you waiting so long for?
‘Cause you need me and you want me
And I can show you what you’re looking for...
‘Cause you need me and you want me
And I can show you what you’re looking for...

And maybe you’re finding all this out
That’s it’s all meaningless somehow
When we’re both driving late at night
And nobody’s losing any fight

So what are we doing here?
Why are you hiding what’s so clear
What are you waiting so long for?
‘Cause you need me and you want me
And I can show you what you’re looking for...
‘Cause you need me and you want me
And I can show you what you’re looking for...

Look straight into my eyes
You’d see exactly what you want
And if you had your way
We’d all be something that we’re not
So don’t even look my way
If you don’t know just what you’ve got
‘Cause we will have our day...

In the sun!

Why don’t you take it?
If you really want it
Why do you fake it?

‘Cause we will have our day...

Picking up from where we’ve left off
We’ve been working hard
All day long down the avenues
And the boulevards
