GIMME JAZZ INTERLUDE


1ST VERSE

BEEN THINKING 'BOUT YOU ALL NIGHT

DIFFICULT TO GET YOU OUT OF MY MIND

JUST THE WAY TO BREAK MY COURAGE DOWN

AND NEVER SHOW ME HOW TO LIE


PRE-CHORUS I

GOTTA TRY TO MAKE THE HIT JUST WHERE YOU STAYED

GOTTA-GOTTA GIVE TO YOU WHAT YOU'VE NEVER BEEN PAID


ALL THOSE LIES YOU'RE TELLING ME LATELY

AIN'T BEEN WHAT YOU'RE SELLING ME BABY


STILL SEEMS TO ME THAT WE WERE BOTH JUST READY TO FALL..


2ND VERSE

I MUST HAVE MISSED A SIGN GIRL

SUDDENLY I'M ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKIN' IN

DARKNESS SEEMS THE ONLY PLACE

YOU EVER WANT TO FACE TOO MUCH


PRE-CHORUS I

GOTTA KEEP GIVING YOU THE SPACE YOU NEED

WHEN YOU GONNA FIGURE OUT I'M GONNA SET YOU FREE

VIBES THAT YOU'VE BEEN SENDING ME

I DO ONLY WHAT YOU'RE LETTING ME BABY


SEEMS TO TAKE FOREVER WHEN I'M FALLING FOR YOU..


CHORUS I

GIVE ME A CLOSER LOOK   (GIVE ME A LOOK)

SEND ME THE STARS YOU TOOK   (THE ONES THAT YOU TOOK)


DID YOUR DEPARTMENT APPROVE ME

CAN'T WAIT FOR THE MOVIE...AND I NEVER READ THE BOOK


GIRL CAN YOU SEE ME  (WHEREVER YOU ARE)

THE WAY THAT I COULD BE  (I'M GOING TOO FAR)

...THIS BOY IS IN LOVE


3RD VERSE

THAT'S JUST THE WAY I LOVE, GIRL

WON'T LET YOU SEE THE PLANS THAT I'VE MADE

THIS WAY I KEEP THE STAGES SET

AND YOU FORGET THAT YOU FOUND MY HEART


PRE-CHORUS I

NEVER-EVER TIRED OF WONDERING WHO YOU'RE WITH

NEVER-NEVER GONNA HURT YOU GIRL WITH THE ONE YOU MISS


ALL THOSE LIES YOU'RE TELLING ME LATELY

I AIN'T BUYING WHAT YOU'RE SELLING ME BABY


SEEMS TO TAKE FOREVER WHEN I'M FALLING FOR YOU..


CHORUS II

GIVE ME A CLOSER LOOK (GIVE ME A LOOK)

CONSIDER THE HANDS YOU SHOOK (ONES THAT YOU SHOOK)


YOU CAST MY EMOTION

MY LINE'S IN THE OCEAN

I'M ROCKING WITHOUT A HOOK


GIRL I WILL BE THERE  (WHEREVER YOU SAY)

WHAT WE WILL SEE THERE  (I'LL REASON AWAY)

...THIS BOY IS IN LOVE


REPEAT CHORUS I AND II


GIMME JAZZ REPRISE TO CLOSE
