Track Name: Maybe I'll Dance Tonight
Friday night
my Swatch is heading toward 7 o'clock
biggest problem on my mind
is whether I should pop my collar or not
In the other room
Martha Quinn's slinging music videos
I'm an '86 Latch-key kid
with someplace to go

My friend honks his horn
I pull my knock-off Jordan's on
One last check in the the mirror
then I hit the lawn
All the way there
we're blasting Eddie Money
Then we stop and do one of those fire drills
'cause we think we're so funny

(CHORUS)
And I'm thinking about
all the cool things I'll say John Hughes could write
and the way her Bonne Belle lipgloss
will catch the light
I want to talk to that girl
with all my might
Then maybe I'll dance tonight

Everybody is there
for everybody to see
Julius Seizure and the Roman Candles up on stage
singing "Take On Me"
Then I see her across the floor and I'm here by the door
I could run away
then the lights change
to match the ballad the band starts to play

(CHORUS)

(Bridge)
I want to sparkle in your eyes
I want to be as cool as Peter Venkman or Marty McFly
And if I'm lucky, I could be your Ducky too
But standing here in this light
I don't know if I look right
to you

I'd love to tell you
this song has a movie end
truth is I chickened out
and spent the night hanging out with my friends
that night I told myself
I'd get another chance
There'd always be another Friday
and some other dance
Track Name: Spinning Sugar (MyOldRETeacher Mix)
Huddled here waiting for the lion
We believe the sun still shines
sometimes you have to go to the dark places
to find light

Sam saw a star through the topsoil
where he dug to see what he could see
we claw and carve our future out of rock and earth
because we believe

We believe in life
we believe in spinning sugar
to survive
we believe that love
will bring down the light

When monsters strut in the sun
on every corner, on every street
the good go to ground and fill the holes behind them
and wait beneath their feet

Time will be our salvation
as dark must fall, light must rise
and we will break the crust and feel the sweet, honey air
and have to shield our eyes

Because
We believe in life
we believe in spinning sugar
to survive
we believe that love
will bring down the light

We believe in deliverance
that a hand will reach down into the dark
we believe that love
will make light

(INSTR BRIDGE)

When the weather threatens
and uncertainty tears across the sky
that's when you'll know how far down you can go
and still fight

And I believe in light
I believe in spinning sugar
to survive
I believe in love
even when it's hard
