Oingo Boingo - Something Isn't Right lyrics

Once in a lifetime, something happens
No one understands
Turns the whole world inside out
Turns water into blazing sand

Who in the world who ever guess
That something wasn't right?
Who can explain when the sun comes up
In the middle of a winter night?

I'm burnin' up now, baby
I'm burnin' up now, baby, baby, please

Who would've guessed that
When I first set eyes upon your face
History would be rearranged and
Nothing would ever be the same

Who would believe that in my heart
Is a piece of burning coal
Slowly turning from a fire to a
Raging blaze without control

I'm burning' up now, baby
I'm burning' up now, baby
I've seen so much, it scares me
I can't cool off 'cause something isn't right

What do you think would happen
If I sat outside your door
Howled like a dog and played guitar
And begged you, baby, baby, please

How do you think your folks would feel
If I broke into your house
Snuck in your room while you were asleep
And prayed to you down on my knees

I'm burning' up now, baby
I'm burning' up now, baby
I've seen so much, it scares me
I can't cool off 'cause something isn't right

Who in the world would ever guess
That somewhere in the middle of our cozy nest
There were dark things lurking in the back of your mind
Just open the window and look with your eyes
Where in the Good Book does it say
That destiny cannot be changed
Who in the world would ever know
If you walked out the door and never came home
That something is not right
