Track Listing And Lyrics

It's on the radio, TV and in magazines
It's even in your dreams
The boss is happy cause the people will buy
He's playing party tricks with the people's desires
It's whatever you want to make it
It's everywhere you can't escape it

Sex sells
Oh oh whatever you want
Sex sells
Oh oh whatever you sell
Use it and abuse it
Cause sex sells

An appropriate tear in faded blue jeans
A beauty shows her finer points in a scandalous scene
People may complain, they may make a lot of fuss
But they can't do jack shit because we like too much
They'll try and sell us a lot we don't
But we'll buy it anyway cause that's the power of greed

Sex sells
Oh oh whatever you want
Sex sells
Oh oh whatever you sell
Use it and abuse it
Cause sex sells

Sex Sells

Sex sells
Oh oh whatever you want
Sex sells
Oh oh whatever you sell
Use it and abuse it
Cause sex sells

People tell you what to do
They're giving you verbal abuse
Too many times you're so confused
Your mind gives in ,hey what's the use
Flame after the rain, you've got to find a way to ease the pain

But I will, I'll always want you
I will, I'll always need you
I will, I'll always want you
yes I will, want you by my side

Authorities give you the kick, your life is hell
No friends around
A little help is all that you need, to keep your feet flat on the ground
And pressure starts to gain and it feels like it's driving you insane

But I will, I'll always want you
I will, I'll always need you
I will, I'll always want you
yes I will, want you by my side

People demand so much, you're crying to be left alone
You're trying to sort things out, before your life is blown

You do your best night and day, with people looking over you
You need a rest you need a break, another chance to start anew
People too blind to see, how you want things to be

But I will, I'll always want you
I will, I'll always need you
I will, I'll always want you
yes I will, want you by my side

There's nothing you can say or do
That would ever change my mind about you
I'm tired of being second best
Why you hold secrets close to your chest

Cause I've heard it all before
That's why I'm walking out the door
And I've taken all I can, I'm a solitary man, I'm a solitary man

So many times I bit my lip
You watched me fall when I lost my grip
And a thousand times I took the blame
Now I'm not going to play your useless games

Cause I've heard it all before
That's why I'm walking out the door
And I've taken all I can, I'm a solitary man, I'm a solitary man

The past is there so we can learn from it
But I only seem to get burnt by it

Cause I've heard it all before
That's why I'm walking out the door
And I've taken all I can, I'm a solitary man, I'm a solitary man

So you think you have your life worked out
Running silky smooth, not a worry or a doubt
I'll tell you you're a fool if you think life's this way
You take it how it comes, day by day

There she sits all alone in her chair
Reliving memories from the past
Her soul is tired and there's grey in her hair
Her beauty is fading fast

Can't you see the fire still burns in her eyes
She still needs love like she did before
The nights are cold and the days are so long
And not much happens anymore

They would shower her with diamonds and pearls
She featured in every young mans dream
But when the crowds stopped begging her for more
Her life just fell apart at the seams

Can't you see the fire still burns in her eyes
She still needs love like she did before
The nights are cold and the days are so long
And not much happens anymore

She sees herself in her daughters eyes
The way she was in those younger years
And when she looks back on those old memories
Her eyes just swell up with tears

Can't you see the fire still burns in her eyes
She still needs love like she did before
The nights are cold and the days are so long
But not much happens anymore

She's just a forgotten beauty
