All For Leyna

Album: Glass Houses (1980)
Charted: 40
  • She stood on the tracks
    Waving her arms
    Leading me to that third rail, SHOCK
    Quick as a wink
    She changed her mind

    She gave me a night
    That?s all it was
    What will it take until I STOP
    Kidding myself, wasting my time, whoa

    There?s nothing else I can do
    ?Cause I?m doing it All For Leyna
    I don?t want anyone new
    ?Cause I?m living it All For Leyna
    There?s nothing in it for you
    ?Cause I?m giving it all to Leyna

    We laid on the beach
    Watching the tide
    She didn?t tell me there were, ROCKS
    Under the waves
    Right off the shore

    Washed up on the sand
    Barely alive
    Wishing the undertow would, STOP
    How can a man take anymore, whoa

    There?s nothing else I can do
    ?Cause I?m doing it All For Leyna
    I don?t want anyone new
    ?Cause I?m living it All For Leyna
    There?s nothing in it for you
    ?Cause I?m giving it all to Leyna

    I?m failing in school
    Loosing my friends
    Making my family loose their minds
    I don?t want to eat
    I don?t want to sleep
    I only want Leyna, one more time

    Now, I?m in my room
    Watching the tube
    Telling myself, she still may, DROP
    Over to say, she?s changed her mind

    So, I wait in the dark
    Listening for her
    Instead of hearing my old man saying, STOP
    Kidding yourself, wasting your time

    There?s nothing else I can do
    ?Cause I?m doing it All For Leyna
    I don?t want anyone new
    ?Cause I?m living it All For Leyna
    There?s nothing in it for you
    ?Cause I?m giving it all to Leyna

  • Layna from CanadaMy mom named me after this song!
  • Zander from Los AngelesThis song seems like a spoof of other love songs. That's just how I see his way of singing and writing the lyrics in this song.
