Track Name: The Worst Kind
She's a devil dream
That you can't resist
Now you're another fiend
Begging for a kiss

Oh how the mighty fall
Once they've had a taste
She laughs while you crawl
A passionate disgrace

Consequence you don't care about
You know there's no easy way out

Obsession got that love infection
of the worst kind, the worst kind
No discretion everybody's saying
that boy lost his mind, lost his mind

All night you toss and turn
Can't keep it cool
Call her too many times
She's ignoring you

Then round 3 am
She picks up the phone
You're already out the door
'cause she don't want to be alone

Consequence you don't care about
You know there's no easy way out

Obsession got that love infection
of the worst kind, the worst kind
No discretion everybody's saying
that boy lost his mind, lost his mind

She's a devil dream
That you can't resist
Doe-eyed serpentine
Licking parted lips

Oh how the mighty fall
Once they've had a taste
She laughs while you crawl
A passionate disgrace

The Worst Kind
No discretion everybody's saying
that boy lost his mind, lost his mind

Obsession got that love infection
of the worst kind, the worst kind
No discretion everybody's saying
that boy lost his mind, lost his mind
Track Name: Try
The room is empty now
All the pictures have come down
And put away with memory

For better or for worse
The hand I had was forced
And now this road I walk alone

Try to tell myself I'm better off without
But it's a lie, it's a lie
I don't know how I'm supposed to live
Without you by my side but I'll try

I wish there'd been a crash
That we burned out hard and fast
But long and slow was how we'd go

Did I stay in too long
Had he known all along
Questions they pain just make them go away

Try to tell myself I'm better off without
But it's a lie, it's a lie
I don't know how I'm supposed to live
Without you by my side but I'll try

There you go waving from the back window
Where were you when I needed you
I had to learn to do without
You made me realize I didn't need you anymore

Try to tell myself I'm better off without
But it's a lie, it's a lie
I don't know how I'm supposed to live
Without you by my side but I'll try

Track Name: Do What You Want
Go ahead and say everything I'm doing wrong
You're acting so blasé like you've seen it all before
You're tired of your life so you're trying to live mine
Jaded every day by the things you never try

Used to believe that you knew everything
But now I know that that just isn't so

Do what you want
Say what you want
Nothing's gonna stop you
If it's what you want to do

Built a thousand hoops that you make yourself jump through
Not so long ago I was right there next to you
I finally grew tired of your condescending tone
Realized I'm better off when I do it on my own

Used to believe that you knew everything
But now I know that that just isn't so

Do what you want
Say what you want
Nothing's gonna stop you
If it's what you want to do

Nothing's gonna stop you
Do what you want

Track Name: Part-Time Lover
Call up, ring once, hang up the phone
To let me know you made it home
Don't want nothing to be wrong with part-time lover

If he's with me I'll blink the lights
To let you know tonight's the night
For you and me, my part-time lover

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right

If I'm with friends and we should meet
Just pass me by, don't even speak
Know the word is "discreet" with part-time lover

But if there's some emergency
Have a girlfriend to ask for me
So then he doesn't peek, it's my part-time lover

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right

We are undercover passion on the run
Chasing love up against the sun
We are strangers by day, lovers by night
Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right

I've got something that I must tell
Last night someone rang my doorbell
And it was not you, my part-time lover

And then some chick called our exchange
But didn't want to leave a name
I guess that two can play the game of part-time lover
You and me, part-time lover
She and he, part-time lover


**written/recorded by Stevie Wonder, 1985
