The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I'm a puppet on a stringTracy island, time-traveling diamondCould a shaped heartachesCome to find ya fall in some velvet morningYears too lateShe's a silver lining lone ranger ridingThrough an open spaceIn my mind when she's not right there beside meI go crazy 'cause here isn't where I wanna beAnd satisfaction feels like a distant memoryAnd I can't help myselfAll I wanna hear her say is are you mine?Are you mine?Are you mine?Are you mine?I guess what I'm trying to say is I need the deep endKeep imagining meeting, wished away entire lifetimesUnfair we're not somewhere misbehaving for daysGreat escape lost track of time and spaceShe's a silver lining climbing on my desireAnd I go crazy 'cause here isn't where I wanna beAnd satisfaction feels like a distant memoryAnd I can't help myselfAll I wanna hear her say is are you mine?Are you mine?Are you mine?Are you mine?And the thrill of the chase moves in mysterious waysSo in case I'm mistakenI just wanna hear you say you got me babyAre you mine?She's a silver lining lone ranger riding through an open spaceIn my mind when she's not right there beside meAnd I go crazy cause here isn't where I wanna beAnd satisfaction feels like a distant memoryAnd I can't help myselfAll I wanna hear her say is are you mine?Well are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)Are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)(Or just mine tonight?)
