I lent a deafened ear to

all the sounds of sadness

I watched with blinded

eyes the looks of loneliness

Broke and heartless

Won't give a damn if

you're down and dying

Oh I'm cold and heartless

Running wild and running free

This is me, yeah, this is me

Born against the wall I

had to learn the hard way

Armed with that in mind

I had to stalk my prey

Cold and heartless

Won't give a damn if

you're down and dying

Oh I'm broke and heartless

And as proud as I can be

This is me, world

Yes, this is me

People say that love

is stronger than hate

But with my luck

I bet that love

Will come too late

Born against the wall I

had to learn the hard way

Armed with that in mind

I had to stalk my prey

Broke and heartless

Won't give a damn if

you're down and dying

Oh I'm broke and heartless

Like a storm that rips the sea

This is me

You can't change the way I am

This is me

There's no one

else I want to be

This is me

Running wild, running free

This is me

This is me

This is me

Like a storm that rips the sea

This is me

You can't change the way I am

This is...

Hi there.

I'm Andrea Hilliard.

Mind if I sit down?

Go ahead, it's a public beach.

Mm, it's my beach.

You mean I'm trespassing?

That depends.

Well, you must

like your privacy.

I know I like mine.

Oh, please, don't go.

Hey, what's your name?

Tony Trelos.

How do you do, Tony Trelos?

Drums?

No, I'm a singer.

Oh, where?

Lobster House.

Oh, my old hangout.

I haven't been there in months.

You outta come down and

catch a show sometime.

I'll do that.

Yeah, two shows a night.

Yes, I know.

No cover.

And no minimum.

You're not leaving already.

Remember, I'm a working boy.

Say, we were just

getting started.

We?

When can I see you again?

Like I said, I'm

at the Lobster House.

Why don't you come

down and catch my show?

I'll do that.

Thanks for the use of

your, uh, private beach, huh?

Oh, anytime.

No cover, no minimum.

Yeah,

I'll remember that.

Hi, Sally.

Hi.

You do a good job, Charlie.

Do you do the dishes at home?

With TV trays?

How's my man?

Oh, better now.

Your lady friends are out

there in droves tonight.

Yeah, same old tired faces.

Well, give 'em a good show.

Easy with dance, huh?

Save those for me.

Hey, come here.

Mm, down boy.

You know I like to

warm up before a show.

Tony, you'll spoil your make-up.

Mm.

Tony, I have to get

back on the floor.

Yeah, that's a good idea.

Tony-

Stop.

I'm stopping, I'm stopping-

- You're really quite efficient.

Oh, I'm very good with my hands.

So you tell me.

I'd be happy to show you.

You have a real hangup

about these things,

don't you, Charlie?

Mm, I got a hangup

about your hang ups.

It must be something

from your childhood.

I was deprived.

And now you're depraved.

Honest, baby, I

got a thing for you.

Put it in a box and

tie it with a ribbon.

Now who's depraved?

Alright, Romeo,

what about your wife?

All she

wants to do is eat.

Then you've got

something in common.

Hey, where's Tony?

Isn't it time for

the second show?

He's in the dressing

room getting ready.

Having trouble?

With these things, who wouldn't?

I wouldn't.

That is enough.

Ladies

and gentleman,

the Lobster House proudly

presents, Tony Trelos!

This is what I am

And what I'll always be

A drifter of the heart

Until love changes me

Take me for myself

Let your mind run free

And find what lies ahead

Across the open sea

I've been right

and I've been wrong

And I've been in-between

On the tips of my fingers

I balance all my dreams

'Cause it's

something I can't keep

I only seem to borrow

I play the game

Hard and fast

Like there's no tomorrow

This is what I am

And what I'll always be

A drifter of the heart

Until love changes me

Take me for myself

Let your mind run free

And find what lies ahead

Across the open sea

If things go

right and I'm on top

Love would be around

Like the wind

they'll all be gone

Whenever I am down

My constant lonely

searching life

ls the price I have to pay

To do the things I want to do

And live this life my way

This is what I am

And what I'll always be

A drifter of the heart

Until love changes me

Take me for myself

Let your mind run free

And find what lies ahead

Across the open sea

This is what I am

And what I'll always be

A drifter of the heart

Until love changes me

Oh take me for myself

Let your mind run free

And find what lies ahead

Across the open sea

Take me for myself

Let your mind run free

And find what lies ahead

Across the open sea

Baby this is what I am

Order me a drink.

I've gotta go change,

I'll be back in a minute.

Well, I see you made a big

hit with the upper register.

Yeah, who's that?

The one you were playing up to.

Who do you mean?

You didn't know she

was Madame National Records?

Well, well.

Don't get so excited, there's

a Mister National Records.

Yeah, well,

he's not sitting with

her, though, is he, baby?

No.

Well, then there's

nothing to worry about, huh?

I'll see you later.

How much later?

Much.

Sorry I took so long.

You're good.

It's quite a show you put on.

Thank you.

Tell me, do you ever put it out?

What?

Your back.

No.

Hey, so you like my act, huh?

Very much.

I'm surprised somebody hasn't

picked you up, out a record.

Well, the last one I

cut cost a small fortune.

Did it sell?

I heard it once on

a local radio station.
