Adam Lambert’s Trespassing Song Sheet

Cuckoo
Feels like I’m having a meltdown
It feels like I’m losing control
They tell me I’m a danger to myself
Now the crazy train is ready to roll, Oh!

Walk that walk like you don’t give a fuck
You’ve got a right to turn it up and get down
Electric shock no I can’t get enough
Cause tonight we’re taking over the town, hey
I wanna lose my mind like a maniac
And cross the line
Never looking back
We’re on the loose
Getting crazy and we’ve gone cuckoo
Gonna party til they take us away

I’m swinging off of my hinges
I’m cocked and I’m ready to go
Just go on and pack up your things and
The crazy train is ready to roll, oh

Walk that walk like you don’t give a fuck
You’ve got a right to turn it up and get down
Electric shock no I can’t get enough
Cause tonight we’re taking over the town, hey
I wanna lose my mind like a maniac
And cross the line
Never looking back
We’re on the loose
Getting crazy and we’ve gone cuckoo
Gonna party til they take us away

Gotta get out of this straight jacket, whoa
Gotta get out of this straight jacket, whoa yeah

Cross the line
We’re on the loose
Getting crazy and we’ve gone cuckoo
Gonna party til they take us away
Party til they take us away
Gonna party til they take us away

Naked Love

Come on
I want your naked love
So don’t you dress it up
Tonight
Come on
You know your naked love
Is what I’m dreaming of
Tonight ah ah ah
Oooooooooohhhhhooooo
Whoooooooaaaaaaaa
Yeah yeah yeeh
Oooooooooohhhhhoooo
Whoooooooaaaaaaaa
Yeah yeah yeah

Take it off
And try me on
The hottest threads
You ever worn
So ro-o-ol the dice
Get up & feel the night
Yeah
I know you’re holding back
Yeah
No more hesitation

Come on
I want your naked love
So don’t you dress it up
Tonight
Come on
You know your naked love
Is what I’m dreaming of
Tonight ah ah ah
Oooooooooohhhhhooooo
Whoooooooaaaaaaaa
Yeah yeah yeah
Oooooooooohhhhhoooo
Whoooooooaaaaaaaa
Yeah yeah yeah

Never Close Our Eyes

 I wish that this night would never be over
There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let’s just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we’d never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

I don’t wanna let a minute get away
Cause we got no time to lose
None of us are promised to see tomorrow
And what we do is ours to choose

Forget about the sunrise
Fight the sleep in your eyes
I don’t wanna miss a second with you
Let’s stay this way forever
It’s only getting better if we want it to

But you know I wish that this night would never be over
There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let’s just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we’d never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

It’s so hard to think this would fade away
But what goes up must come down
Why can’t we just live life with no consequence
And always live in the now

Forget about the sunrise
Fight the sleep in your eyes
I don’t wanna miss a second with you
Let’s stay this way forever
It only gets better if we want it to

You know that I wish that this night would never be over
There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let’s just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we’d never close our eyes, our eyes, never

Trespassing

 Well I was walking for some time,
When I came across this sign
Saying:
Who are you and where are you from?
We don’t like when visitors come.
No Trespassing that’s what it said,
At least that’s what I could read.

No Trespassing?
Yeah, my ass!
Wait ‘till ya get a load of me!

One day I was tripping and that’s when I could see,
That the ether that I tapped into could be reality.
It was great,
That’s when I climbed that optimistic vine
Once I hit that mountain peak,
I began to lose my mind.
I don’t need no sympathy.
I won’t cry and whine.
Life’s my light and liberty and I’ll shine,
When I want to shine.

Make their faces crack,
There’s no turning back.

Let’s go!

Chokehold

 Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Sheets are in a knot
My heart is like rock
Hey

Baby I can smell you on my clothes
I try to stay composed
But I feel the fever grow
Oh

I keep running away
Running away
Running away from you
But I can’t stand breaking the chains
Breaking the chains
Breaking the chains

Oh
‘Cause I know
The second you go
Want you to bring it on back
Bring it on back
Bring it on back to me

And I know
I want your chokehold
Want you to bring it on back
Bring it on back
Bring it on back to me

Bring it on back to me
Bring it on back

All these hard confessions I forgave

Could asphyxiate

But I kinda like the pain
Yeah
Baby I can smell you on my clothes
I try to stay composed
But I feel the fever grow
Oh

I keep running away
Running away
Running away from you
But I can’t stand breaking the chains
Breaking the chains
Breaking the chains

Oh
‘Cause I know
The second you go
Want you to bring it on back
Bring it on back
Bring it on back to me

And you know
I want your chokehold
Want you to bring it on back
Bring it on back
Bring it on back to me

Bring it on back to me
Bring it on back to me

Oh oh oh
Want your chokehold
Oh oh hey hey
Time to bring it on back
Baby back to me

‘Cause I know
The second you go

And you know
I want your chokehold
Gotta bring it on back
Bring it on back
Bring it on back to me

Bring it on back to me
Bring it on back to me
Bring it on back to me

Outlaws Of Love

 Oh, nowhere left to go.
Are we getting closer, closer?
No, all we know is “no!”
Nights are getting colder, colder.

Hey!
Tears all fall the same.
We all feel the rain.
We can’t change.

Everywhere we go
We’re lookin’ for the sun.
Nowhere to grow old.
We’re always on the run.
They say we’ll rot in Hell
But I don’t think we will.
They’ve branded us enough
Outlaws of love.

Scars
Make us who we are
Hearts and homes are broken, broken.
Far, we could go so far.
With our minds wide open, open.

Hey.
Tears all fall the same.
We all feel the rain.
We can’t change.

Everywhere we go
We’re lookin’ for the sun.
Nowhere to grow old.
We’re always on the run.
They say we’ll rot in Hell
But I don’t think we will.
They’ve branded us enough
Outlaws of love.

Everywhere we go
We’re looking for the sun.
Nowhere to grow old
We’re always on the run.
They’ve branded us enough
Outlaws Of Love.

Outlaws Of Love.
Outlaws Of Love.
Outlaws Of Love
Outlaws Of Love!

Better Than I Know Myself

 Cold as ice
And more bitter than a December
Winter night
That’s how I treated you
And I know that I
I sometimes tend to lose my temper
And I cross the line
Yeah that’s the truth

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now,
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

All along
I tried to pretend it didn’t matter
If I was alone
But deep down I know
If you were gone
For even a day I wouldn’t know which way to turn
Cause I’m lost without you.

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now,
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

I get kind of dark
Let it go too far
I can be obnoxious at times
But try and see my heart
Cause I need you need now
So don’t let me down
You’re the only thing in this world I would die without

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now,
But you’re the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

    Thanks so much for these lyrics. It has seemed such a long, mostly-dry spell waiting for new energy from dearest Adam, as I know you probably well-understand! You serve a much appreciated role for me, helping to bridge the gap & making him seem a little closer.
    with gratefil hugs!!
    little closer
