Track Name: The Following [Problem]
I'm not following you
I got here first
I'm not following you
I don't understand what you're saying to me
You're not paranoid
Are you?
Are you?
I think you might be
What's got into you?
What's your problem?
I think we need to sit down and talk about it

There's something taken over me
Something in my chemistry
I can't put it into words
But I can't take it
There's someone out there on the street
Something in the water
I can't see what's going on
I can't see past them

I'm not following you
I got here first
I'm not following you
I don't understand what you're saying to me
You're not paranoid
Are you?
Are you?
I think you might be
What's got into you?
What's your problem?
I think we need to sit down and talk about it

You've got to be kidding me
You think I didn't see?
Just before you blocked my view
Someone taking aim!
Don't tell me you're just passing by
Don't say it's my imagination
I don't trust a word you say
You're all the same!

Move, move, get out the way!
What is it that you're hiding from me?
Just when I think I know what's going on
You move out the way, someone else comes along

I'm not following you...

Track Name: Lorel's On Hardy Street [West End]
Walking down the same old streets
And staring at the same old faces
Getting in the same old cars
And being driven to the same old places
And all the while she tells herself
That it's only for the summer months
And all the time she hears the cries
Coming from her only son

Standing at the same old crossroads
She repeats over and over
"You can try all you want
But you won't get me"

Stumbling out the local bar
He doesn't want to go home just yet
He fumbles as he starts his car
And he thinks of the girl he's going to get
And every time it feels the same
He'll call her by a different name
He doesn't even share her shame
As she repeats over and over
"You can try all you want
But you won't get me"

Welcome to my world
Welcome to my friends
Welcome to my world
The fun it never ends

Walking out into the daylight
Squinting at the morning sun
She bears the scars she picked up last night
Only done in the name of fun
And she staggers home to see her boy
She wants to hold her only joy
She gets the call she didn't want
And she repeats over and over
"You can try all you want
But you won't get him"

Welcome to my world
Welcome to my friends
Welcome to my world
The nightmare never ends
Track Name: The Outsider [25.2]
She was an outsider
Never came in
She lived unnoticed
Never came in
Straightforward hair
Never came in
She was an outsider
Never came in
She always stood apart
She never came in
Little girl lonely
Never came in
