Carly Simon lyrics and not

'Anticipation' by Carly Simon
 
We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasin' after some finer day
Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'
And I tell you how easy it feels to be with you
And how right your arms feel around me
But I, I rehearsed those words just late last night
When I was thinkin' about how right tonight might be
Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'
And tomorrow we might not be together
I'm no prophet and I don't know nature's ways
So I'll try and see into your eyes right now
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
(These are the good old days)
 
'Exaggeration' NOT by Carly Simon
 
I'll never know what I'll see on the news
But I watch them all anyway
And I know I'll see bummer that gives me the blues
The edge of disaster is always in play
 
Exaggeration, exaggeration
Is making my dread
Is driving me crazy
 
Breaking news for any reason; you're not going to wait
For disaster or emergency
To stoke my fears or cause me to panic
You keep me fixated on what just might come to be
 
Exaggeration, exaggeration
Is making my dread
Is driving me crazy
 
According to you tomorrow may not come
I'm a thinker and I know your ways
So I need to turn you off but I can't
I'll stay right here so you can tell me 'bout the bad of the day
And stay right here 'cause these are the bad old days
(These are the bad old days)
(These are the bad old days)
(These are the bad old days)
(These are the bad old days)
