Why Aren't You Dead?

I got the letter you left under my door
Knocked me on my ass to the floor
Never knew two words could take such a bite
It said, "Dear Jon, Hello. Goodbye".
I saw your car parked outside Motel Cascade

Saw two shadows go to town on the shade
I can't believe my own lyin' eyes, oh my
It better be your girlfriend I saw going down some other guy
You told me you loved me, 'til death do us part
So tell me there's a tombstone where there used to be a heart

You said you couldn't live without me
So why aren't you dead?
Instead of six feet under you're in someone else's bed
There's just one thing that I can't get through my head
You said you couldn't live without me so why aren't you dead?

I cut your face out of our old photographs
And all the junk you left behind's in the trash
Well, I hoped you were a goner for sure
Well, there's been a resurrection, yeah, a miracle cure
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If you can't trust the livin' baby who can you trust?

You said you couldn't live without me
So why aren't you dead?
Instead of six feet under you're in someone else's bed
There's just one thing that I can't get through my head
You said you couldn't live without me so why aren't you dead?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If you can't trust the livin' baby who can you trust?

You said you couldn't live without me
So why aren't you dead?
Instead of six feet under you're in someone else's bed
There's just one thing that I can't get through my head
You said you couldn't live without me baby, so why aren't you dead?

You said you couldn't live with out me, what a surprise!
Instead of laying you out I'm laying down on the line
You spend my hard-earned money, you left me in the red
You said you couldn't live without me. so why aren't you dead?
Why aren't you dead?
Why aren't you dead?



The Radio Saved My Life Tonight

I got something on my mind; I'm just a little bit depressed
I try to blame it on the rain but it was in my heart, I guess
I'm feeling like a stranger when I drove through my hometown
Past the sign that reads 'The Boyhood Home of a Place That's Long Gone Now'
I realized ain't nothing what it used to be
Until I heard a song that takes me to my memories

Radio saved my life tonight
An old song that that DJ played made me feel alright
I made it home by my dashboard light
The radio saved my life tonight

Just this side of morning, just this side of dawn
I walked so soft into my bedroom, saw my wife sleeping alone
She whispered, "Baby, are you OK? Have you been gone for long?"
I just kicked off my jeans and I held her close, I held her all night long
I tried to sleep but in my mind I heard that song
Like a friend in need the melody keeps me hanging on

Radio saved my life tonight
An old song that that DJ played made me feel alright
I made it home by my dashboard light
Radio saved my life tonight
The radio saved my life tonight

The sad song that the DJ played made me feel alright
As I drove down that lonesome highway just me and my dashboard light
Radio saved my life tonight
Radio saved my life tonight

That old song that the DJ played made me feel alright
I made it home by my dashboard light
Radio saved my life tonight
The radio saved my life tonight
The radio saved my life tonight
The radio saved my life tonight
The radio saved my life tonight



Taking It Back

I've been away so long I hardly knew the place
It's been too long since I've been around
Just like I rolling stone I ain't go no home
But my boys are back in town
It's been two long years that I've been on the run
From lawyers, lovers, monies and a lawman's son
You though tit was the last you heard from me
Well you better back up to catch up with me
'Cause I'm livin' in the fast, speeding like a steam train
Just before I fall, just before I fall off the track

Taking it back
I'm taking it back
Taking it back
You took it away, took it away
All I can say is we're taking it back

I'm the same old dog that I used to be
The word's all over town that you've been looking for me
I'm no different that I was before
Give you what you need and then I'm out the door
'Cause I'm livin' in the fast lane, coming like a hurricane
A snake without a rattle, baby that's a matter of fact

Taking it back
Taking it back
Taking it back
You took it away, took it away
All I can say is we're taking it back

I've been away so long it's good to see your face
Barkeep, won't you buy me a round?
Raise a glass to the good times past
Then we'll tear this damn place down

Taking it back
Taking it back
Taking it back
Taking it back



Someday I'll Be Saturday Night

Hey, my name is Jim, I fought in Vietnam
My life's a bargain basement, all the good shit's gone
I just can't hold a job. Where did I go wrong?
I'm sleeping in my car; My dreams moved on

My name is Billy Jean, my love is bought and sold
I'm only sixteen, I feel a hundred years old
My foster daddy went and took my innocence away
The street life ain't much better but at least I'm getting paid

Tuesday just might go my way
It can't get worse than yesterday
Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind
But somehow I'll survive

Hey, man, I'm alive
As long as I can breathe, as long as I can fight
Hey man, I know I'll get by
When I wanna die I pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride
I'm feeling like a Monday but I wish I were a Saturday night

I can't say my name, my life is on the line
They say that I'm to blame, that I'm guilty of a crime
I wish that I could be in another time and place
With someone else's soul and someone else's face
This world ain't so cut and dry but I can't 'why?' wrong or right
I ain't here to justify what I gotta do to survive

Hey, man, I'm alive
As long as I can breathe,
As long as I can fight
Hey man, I know I'll get by
When I wanna die
I pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride
I'm feeling like a Monday but I wish I were a Saturday night
I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night

Tuesday just might go my way
It can't get worse than yesterday
Thursdays, Fridays ain't been kind
Somehow I'll survive

Hey, man, I'm alive
As long as I can breathe, as long as I can fight
Hey man, I know I'll get by
When I wanna die, I pick up all the pieces and what's left of my pride
I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night
I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night
I'm feeling like a Monday but someday I'll be Saturday night



Miss Fourth Of July

I used to live but now I survive
I used to believe but now it's just one day at a time
The circus is gone, it's all packed away
The clown's hat, the makeup's been packed in his case

So we wave goodbye to Miss Fourth of July
The queen of the roses has left us with nothing but thorns
Don't say we never tried, Miss Fourth of July
The stars that we reached for left us with nothing but dawn

I used to laugh but I've learned to cry
For I ain't too proud to let you see tears fall from these eyes
For all of my hopes, my heartaches and fears
For a night I just watched and you walked out of here

I just waved goodbye to Miss Fourth of July
The queen of the roses has left us with nothing but thorns
Don't say we never tried, Miss Fourth of July
The crown that we reached for left us with nothing

But your thorns left me wounded not unlike the truth
When innocence sang his last song
He'd tell me that it's all gone
Just look me in the eyes and say man, nothing at all

I used to live, now I've learned to die
And I used to dream I used to dream

So now we wave goodbye to Miss Fourth of July
The queen of the roses has left us with nothing but thorns
Don't say we've never tried, Miss Fourth of July
The stars that we reached for, they've left us with nothing but dawn
Oh, yeah
Nothing but a heavy hit of heartbreak
A handful of blues..
Oh, yeah



Open All Night

So you packed your bags you said you're leaving tonight
You gotta catch the last train to the pixie lights
It's your life, better get on board
Got all dolled up in your Sunday shoes
You got that lipstick on, nothing to lose
Except me, baby, singing blues
So go on now just walk away, baby
Don't look back, you just drive me crazy, baby, baby, baby, baby

Don't worry about me, I'll get along
I'm like a neon sign that's always on
It's alright, I'm open all night
I'll be here waiting no matter how long
I'll keep the jukebox playing our favorite song
Hey, if you're lonely, I'm open all night
Open all night
I'll never turn out the lights
Open all night

You wave goodbye said baby, good luck
You better chase your dreams before they rust
Get what you can and hope it's enough
Go on now, you're on your way, baby
Break some hearts, hearts can break easy - baby, baby, baby, baby

Don't worry about me, I'll get along
I'm like a neon sign that's always on
It's alright, I'm open all night
I'll be here waiting no matter how long
I'll keep the jukebox playing our favorite song
Hey, if you're lonely, I'm open all night
Open all night
I'll never turn out the lights
Open all night

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
If anybody had a heart, oh, if anybody had a heart
They'd know how much, just how much I want you

Open all night, I'll never turn out the lights
Don't worry about me, I'll get along
I'm like a neon sigh that's always on
It's alright, I'm open all night
I'll be here waiting no matter how long
I'll keep the jukebox playing our favorite song
If you're lonely, I'm open all night
Open all night
I'll never turn out the lights
Open all night
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah



These Arms Are Open All Night

Well, it's closing time, I got no place to go
No, I'm not tired; nobody's waiting at home
Hey, what about you? Looks like you're leaving alone
Guess that makes two - me and you
By the way, my name's Jones
Hey, I know a place not far from here
That's my dented red Chevy out front
You can follow me there

There's no neon lights
It don't stink of beer
It's just a mile up the road
Just a minute from here

These arms are open all night
If you need someone to talk to
A hand to hold onto
And if it feels alright
These arms are open all night

The band is through, they're breaking down the drums
The took the singer's keys, man, he was really drunk
They're turning on the lights, we can't stay here no more
I can take a hint, find my way out the door
So what do you think? Are you going my way?
There's still a whole lot left to this night
Baby, what do you say?

There's no neon lights
It don't stink of beer
It's just a mile up the road
Just a minute from here
These arms are open all night

If you need someone to talk to
A hand to hold onto
And if it feels alright
These arms are open all night

God only knows how long it's been that I been so lonely
Back there at the stop sign
I see her headlights
I think she's coming with me

There's no neon lights
It don't stink of beer
It's just a mile up the road
Just a minute from here
These arms are open all night

If you need someone to talk to
A hand to hold onto
And if it feels alright
These arms are open all night



I Get A Rush

Every day of my life has been leading me here tonight
Feels like I'm coming home back to you, back to you
Every chance that I takes
Every wrong turn and every mistake
Is a step on the road back to you
And I'm alive

I like it, I like it, I can't get enough
I like it, I like it, yeah, I get a rush
I like what I like and I like it too much
You know what I like, yeah, I get a rush

And my goal, I see you, you're as close as the hole in my shoe
And when I'm feeling used, I'm renewed, I get high
I can fly, I've got wings
I've got riches that money can't bring
I've got more than a king, I've got you
And baby, that's alright

I like it, I like it, I can't get enough
I like it, I like it, yeah, I get a rush
I like what I like and I like it too much
You know what I like, yeah, I get a rush

From you, everything you do
I call it love
Yeah, I get a rush, I get a rush
Every day of my life has been leading me here tonight
And wherever I roam I'm heading back home to you
Back to you

I like it, I like it, I can't get enough
I like it, I like it, yeah, I get a rush
I like what I like and I like it too much
You know what I like, yeah, I get a rush
I like it, I like it, I can't get enough
I like it, I like it, yeah, I get a rush
I like what I like and I like it too much
You know what I like, yeah, I get a rush
From you, everything you do
I call it love
Yeah, I get a rush, I get a rush from you



Someday Just Might Be Tonight

Playing king of the mountain on a dead end street
At the end of the block is where we cut our teeth
The world was trying to sweep up off our feet
I'd run home crying with cut up knees
"Alright," Mama said. "It's alright."

Now nothing's and it never will
When you learn to swallow defeat like a bitter pill
Remember the story about Jack 'n' Jill
They ended up driving in a Coupe de Ville
You don't know when your ship will arrive

Don't give up, don't give in
Stand and fight, you just might win
When the ride gets rough
Hold on tight
Someday just might be tonight

You're the kind that goes swimming with a raincoat on
Who's to say if you are right or wrong
Let me know when you figured it out
Just don't go drowning in a shadow of doubt
Don't let the bastards make up your mind

Don't give up, don't give in
Stand and fight, you just might win
When the ride gets rough
Hold on tight
Someday just might be tonight

You may never find a treasure that's been washed up on the beach
Heaven won't be waiting for you walking down these city streets
Remember Mama's Band Aids on your scabby knees
They had to bleed for little victories

Don't give up, don't give in
Stand and fight, you just might win
When the ride gets rough
Hold on tight
Someday just might be tonight

Don't give up, don't give in
You never when the ship will come in
When the ride gets rough
Hold on tight
'Cause someday just might be tonight



Thief Of Hearts

You can lock up all the doors
Pull up the covers
Turn out the lights
I'll know where you are
It's alright
You can go head and hide
You know you can't keep me out
I'll find my way
I'm here to stay
Even the cops can't save you now
Hey, baby, there's nothing you can do
Hey, baby, it's isn't up to you

Cause I am the thief of hearts
Don't hide or try to run
I'll play the part, I'm the thief of hearts
I've come to steal your love

I am thief of hearts
You can hold on to your heart
You ain't gonna win
Go ahead and draw the blind
I'm still coming in
Hey, baby, I'm gonna wear you down
Hey, baby, you better listen to me now

I am the thief of hearts
The shadow on your wall
The whisper in your ear
The footsteps in the hall
I am the thief of hearts
Don't hide or try to run
I'll play the part, I'm the thief of hearts
I'm gonna steal your love
Hey, baby, there's nothing you can do
Hey, baby, you know there ain't no use

I am the thief of hearts
I'm guilty of the charge
You can throw away the keys
And double up the bars
I am the thief of hearts
Don't hide or try to run
I'll play the part, I'm the thief of hearts
I'm gonna steal your love



Last Man Standing

Come see a living, breathing spectacle only seen right here
It's your last chance in this lifetime, the line forms to the rear
You won't believe your eyes
Your eyes will not believe your ears
Get your money out, get ready
Step right up, yeah you, come here

You ain't seen nothing like him, the last one of his breed
You better hold on to your money, honey
Honeys, don't forget to breathe
Enter at your own risk, mister
It might change the way you think
There's no dancers, there's no diamonds
No, this boy don't lip synch

Here's the last man standing
Step right up, here's the real thing
The last chance of a lifetime
Come and see, hear, feel the real thing

See those real live calloused fingers wrapped around those guitar strings
Kiss the kips where hurt has lingered
It breaks your heart to hear him sing
The songs were more than music, they were pictures from his soul
So keep your pseudo-punk, hip-hop, pop-rock junk
And your digital downloads

Here's the last man standing
Step right up, here's the real thing
The last chance of a lifetime
Come and see, hear, feel the real thing

Take your seats, now folks - it's showtime
Hey, Patrick, hit the lights
There's something in the air, there's magic in the night
Now here's the band, the really play
I'll count the first one in
I don't know where it's going
We all know where it's been

The last man standing
Step right up, here's the real thing
The last chance of a lifetime
To come and see, hear, feel
The last man standing
Step right up, here's the real thing
The last chance of a lifetime
Come and see, hear, feel the real thing, the real thing, the real thing



I Just Want To Be Your Man
Hello, baby, it's only me
I know you're tired, it's been a long hard week
I was thinking maybe if you ain't got no plans
I just wanna be your man
Tonight I wanna be your man
Know what you're thinking, that you've got your doubts
I'm the only one that knows what your dreams are about
If you say no then I will understand
I just wanna be your man
Tonight I wanna be your man
And all I want is to dream out loud
We used to think we had it all worked out
I know that you don't want to be alone
The streets outside are so damn cold
You still ever think of you and me as 'us'?
Or another thing we let die and turn to dust?
I wasn't there to clean the cuts
I want the one who got caught in the ruts
I was just thinking maybe if you got no plans
I
I just wanna
Tonight I wanna be your man

Garageland

I read the paper just the other day
About a buddy of mine who headed to an early grave
They say he went in his sleep
With a smile on his face
Bet he was dreaming 'bout those better days
When the crash of the drums
Hit like the waves on a beach
That cheap bass and guitar and our wildest dreams
We were searching for a savior like anybody else
Trying to save ourselves from ourselves

Just a garage band
We weren't alive
We were livin' in Garageland
Our parents all held jobs but we had other plans
We acted like our heroes
They just didn't understand
We were never afraid to fall
It was us and those four walls

Just a Garage band
We weren't alive
We were livin' in Garageland
Nothing else felt so right
Just us, those guitars
And a Saturday night

Just a Garage band
We weren't alive
We were livin' in Garageland
Nothing else felt so right
Just us, those guitars
And a Saturday night



Starting All Over Again

I've been waiting, standing in the dark for hours
Tryin' to find the faith and the power to get back home to you
It's been a long time, long time since I've seen your face
On and on I could not replace the fire that burns for you
So here's to the good times, here's to the bad
Here's to the memories that we all had
Here's to tomorrow, let yesterday pass us by

Tonight we'll be starting all over again
And it feels like the first time
I'll never feel this way again
Starting all over again

Do you remember, remember the odds we were given
When we had nothing and we thought that was living
It's been such a long, long road
Here's to our old friend who helps us get by
Here's to the dreamers, may dreams never die
If we believe we can all keep the good times alive

Tonight we'll be starting all over again
It's like starting all over again

Tonight we'll be starting all over again
It feels like the first time
I'll never feel this way again
Whoa, tonight we'll be starting all over again
And it feels like the first time
I know whenever we're together my friends
It's like starting all over again
I been waiting, standing in the dark for hours
Trying to find the faith and the power to start it all over again



Maybe Someday

And I would give up tomorrow
And die for one yesterday
I'd lie, beg, steal and borrow
To hear you whisper my name
Tonight there ain't no miracles
Washing up on this beach
The angels left here long ago
But I still believe that

Maybe someday
I will hold your hand
Maybe someway
We'll trace our footsteps in the sand
And just walk away maybe someday

Now I don't know how a heart beats
But I sure know how one breaks
Remember how I used to hold you
To share every breath that you'd take
How can I forget
You're every tear that I cry
I know you're coming back
You never kissed me goodbye

Maybe someday
I will hold your hand
Maybe someway
We'll trace our footsteps in the sand
And just walk away maybe someday

They say that nothing lasts forever
But we know our two hearts beat together
And though you're far away
Every night I pray
Maybe someday someday

Baby, someday
I will understand
Baby, someway
We'll trace these footsteps in the sand
Just walk away maybe someday...



Last Chance Train

October leaves are falling, so am I
A harvest moon is calling me and I know why
The traffic's like a symphony in blue

In the autumn air I smell your sweet perfume
I miss you sitting cross-legged in this empty room
Yesterdays are eating me alive

I'm your angel, baby - I've got broken wings
I can't walk, I can't run, I can't drop until you're next to me, so the only thing

You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Leave a flower the station, I know my destination
Love bring me home again

You try to reach me but I've sailed away
You tried to read me but my words got in the way
The music's over but the dance has just begun

I wish that I could just get back to Baltimore
You know I'd scratch, I'd claw, I'd scream 'til I'm raw, just to fall down at your door

You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Leave a flower at the station, I know my destination
Love bring me home again

Let the scarecrows laugh coming down the tracks
At the broken hearts that don't come back
'Cause the train has left the station with my pain
Let them forget my name, oh
I'm on a last chance train

Sitting here I smoke my nineteenth cigarette
Now all that's left are ashes, butts and my regrets
It's your taste that I just can't forget

You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Let the scarecrows laugh coming down the tracks
At the broken hearts that don't come back
We'll be laughing at them, crying in the rain
It's you and I again, oh..

You gotta meet me tonight
I'm on a last chance train
Leave a flower at the station, I know my destination
Love bring me home again

I'm on a last chance train
It's gonna bring me home to you
Oh, the last chance train
This time I'm coming through, coming through



Fire Inside

Silver bullet in the wild blue
Crack in the walls I'm coming through
Think you can stop me, well take a look in these eyes
You can't cage what you can't tame
There ain't no rules, this ain't a game
There's no way to stop the fire inside

You can escape a pouring rain
You can run for shelter in a hurricane
Change your face, lose your name
Lie about things you can't explain
But there's one thing that you cannot deny

The fire inside, the fire inside
You can run from what's in your blood and you can't hide
From the fire inside
The fire inside

Tonight I'll run I need no sleep
When it feels this good you're in too deep
In blood I'm gonna write my name, cover my tracks I feel no shame
Just let 'em try and stop the fire inside

The fire inside, the fire inside
You can run from what's in your blood and you can't hide
The fire inside, the fire inside
It's the only way you know you're still alive
The fire inside, the fire inside

There's no place for me in heaven
Tonight I just might die
They'll be no one to hold my hand
For me no one will cry
There'll be no forgiveness but I'll never deny

The fire inside, the fire inside
You can't run from what's in your blood and you can't hide
The fire inside, the fire inside
It's the only way to know you're still alive
The fire inside, the fire inside
The fire inside, the fire inside
It's the fire inside, the fire inside
It's the fire inside, the fire inside



Every Beat of My Heart

As a hard rain beats down in the night it sounds like applause
Still I can't hear a sound with the beat of my heart
I can't pick up that phone anymore and I need to confess
If I don't say 'I love you' everything else is a waste of my breathe

Every beat of my heart I would give
Every beat of my heart just to live
To live for your love, if all that I want
Is to die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart

As I whisper your name I wish you were here by my side
And the only way that I find you is when I close my eyes
With my ring on your finger I hope and I pray
That you know deep in your soul with every step that you take

Every beat of my heart I would give
Every beat of my heart just to live
I live for your love, if all that I want
Is to die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart

It's the little things that you do that make me want you more
It's the way your hands are trembling but what they trembling for?
It's the way the smile fits on your lips
The way you hold me tight
God knows I'd give everything to be in your arms tonight

I live for your love, it's all that I want
Is to die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart
Just to live

Every beat of my heart, just to live
I live for your love, it's all that I want
To die in your arms
I'd give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart
Give you every beat of my heart



Rich Man living in a Poor Man's House

Billy works too hard, trying to make ends meet
He's gotta pay his credit cards, yeah he's been dealing with the odds that even Vegas can't beat

By six he's out of bed, she makes his coffee sweet
He grabs his boots & his coat, leaves a note that says I Love You
And runs to catch a bus down at the end of Market Street

It took some time to figure it out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
He might be down, but he ain't out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house

Every night at home, feels like it's Christmas Eve
Gracie's got his dinner on the stove, Daddy's coming home
And they've got seven hungry children that are tugging on his sleeve

It took some time to figure it out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
He might be down, but he ain't out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
Every night at five when work lets out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house

He arrives at 9 as the work bell's ringing
Hits the grind but his heart is singing
Some men live for money
Some men live for work
But it's a real man, a richer man who knows what love's worth

It took some time to figure it out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
He might be down, but he ain't out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
Every night at five when work lets out
He's a rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house
A rich man living in a poor man's house



The One Who Got Away

If I, I could be anyone
Could I, I be your only one?
If I, I could be anything
Could I be the secret that you keep
Breath that you breathe
Your dreams while you sleep?
If you, if you could read my mind
Then you, you'd now I crossed that line
I, I'd make you my Valentine
I can't let you go but I know
That this ring is there to remind

So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
And you'll be the one who got away

Now I'm chasing headlights back home
And you, you're sitting there on your own
When we were sippin' martinis
I started believing I wouldn't be leaving alone
I told you a joke and you laughed
When I asked you to dance
You said there's no band, there's no radio
I got up real slow, started singing real low
When I was melting in your arms I had to let go

So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
And you'll be the one..

If there was no tomorrow
There were no yesterdays
The stolen moments we've borrowed
We wouldn't let slip away

So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
So let's re-enact that scene
Until our dying day
I'll be the hero
And you can the one
Yeah, you could be the one that got away



You Can Sleep While I Dream

You're boy sits down to write a song 'cause he thinks he's got something to say
Innocence thinks it can change the world but the world keeps getting in the way
It's a small list for the optimist who believes that he can fly
In a long line full of pessimists to stop him every time he tries
Some people see things as they are and ask,"why?"
I dream things that never were, I take my shot and say, "why not?"

(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I aint' breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

Convicted by convictions, they were carving out your cross
They came to take your measurements just to show you who's the boss
Until I reach that promised land I won't stop
When I get there I'll shake your hand so meet me on that mountaintop

(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I aint' breaking
Scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the breathing
(Hey, hey, hey) Forgotten and the bleeding
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels, I got demons
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

I'm not suggesting that you fly with me (Yeah, yeah)
Well here's a dose of some reality (Yeah, yeah)
You're swinging at a change-up, boy you better shape up, here comes the wrecking ball
Good morning, here's your wake-up call
(Hey, hey, hey) I feel the change a comin'
(Hey, hey, hey) See that train a comin'
(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the dreamers
(Hey, hey, hey) Doubting disbelievers
Get out of my way
I bend but I ain't breaking
I'm scared but I ain't shaking
Baby, you can sleep while I dream

(Hey, hey, hey) This one's for the breathing
(Hey, hey, hey) The dying and the bleeding
Get out of my way
I may whisper but I'm screaming
I got angels, I got demons
Baby, you can sleep while I dream, when I dream and I dream I dream
(Hey, hey, hey) I can feel the change a come
(Hey, hey, hey) I see that train a coming
Can you see it?
Baby, you can sleep while I dream



Outlaws of War

In his mind he was a man, at least he thought he was
It's hard to understand how old is old enough
Yeah, she was his girl they met back in high school
And they ran off and got married 'cause they though it'd be cool
They'll never see what you are to me
All that I want, all that I believe is

They say we're too young to understand
They don't know how it feels when I hold your hand
They say we've gotta to prove what we're made of
You and me against the world
Outlaws of love

The honeymoon was over, the money'd all been spent
Felt like he was kidnapped, his ransom was the rent
Spent too much time crying, holding onto pride
He talks about a promise, he'd look her in the eye
No time to cry living on the run
We never know if our day will come

They say we're young and don't understand
They don't know how it feels when I hold your hand
We'll save our dreams before they turn to dust
They'll be no surrender for
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love

You know it ain't easy to sink or rise above
These days you're two paychecks away ain't that simple enough
Now I hope we can laugh when we look back on these years
We'd say about the hard times still sinking from our beer
They say we're young and don't understand
They don't' know how it feels when I hold your hand
Each day we gotta prove what we're made up
You and me against the world
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love
Outlaws of love



Good Guys Don't Always Wear White

You say you don't like my kind
A bitter picture in your mind
No, it don't matter what I say
I hear you bitchin' when I walk away

I'll never be what you want me to be
You tell me I'm wrong but I disagree
I ain't go no apology
Just because I don't look like you, talk like you, think like you
Judge and jury, a hangman's noose
I see them in your eyes

Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white

You judge a man who don't stand in line
Just because he ain't on your side
You know the man who wears those shoes
If you cut me don't I bleed like you? (You know I do)

I don't know what you've been told
Can't buy guts with a pot o' gold
A rich man's poor if he got no soul
Rich man, poor man, beggar man, king
All that shit don't mean a thing
Do you know which one's behind those eyes?
It's all a disguise

Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white

Hey baby, whose side you on?
You think you got it all figured out where we belong
Forget all about your dark from light
Day from night
Wrong from right

Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Good guys don't always wear white
Tell your Mama, baby
Good guys don't always wear white
Don't always wear, don't always wear
Don't always wear, don't always wear
Don't always wear, don't always wear
White



We Rule The Night

We walked through the sunshine, we walked thru the rain
As endless as time the thoughts will remain
We'll take what we want
You take what you need
We are the targets, you better believe

No one can save you, there's nothing to say
Deception's the name of the game

We rule the night
Only the strong will survive
There's no wrong, there's no right
We rule the night
We rule the night
We'll never give up the fight
Where the wrong is alright
We rule the night
All is for one and one is for all
If we take the fight then you take the fall
You run from the shadows but they call my name
You search for the truth but your search is in vain

No one can save you, there's nothing to say
Deception's the name of the game

We rule the night
Only the strong will survive
There's no wrong, there's no right
We rule the night
We rule the night
We'll never give up the fight
Where the wrong is alright
We rule the night
We rule the night
We rule the night
We rule the night
We rule the night

Edge of a Broken Heart

And there I stood, just like a soldier I was tough, until I saw her
I said Hello, but she just turned away
Hey Romeo, whatcha doin' with my girl
Who are you using now, well I turn and walk away (Turn and walk away)

I'm the one who needs her now, you can believe it
I'll be there to catch her when she falls
Oooo, here I am (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm a man (On the edge of a broken heart)
Here we stand (On the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 'cause you know I'm a man on the edge
(On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)

I'm on the outside, looking inside
You're with him, who's on the wrong side now
Do you still think of me
I try to call but no one answers
Two silhouettes, a private dancer
Lights go dim, as the music starts to fade away
(Turn and walk away)

I'm the one who needs you now, you can believe it
I'll be there to catch you when you fall
Ooo you better believe I'm the man (On the edge of a broken heart)
Here I am (On the edge of a broken heart)
And we stand (On the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can 'cause you know I'm a man on the edge
(On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)

Ooohh, and when I hold out my hands
I'll be reaching for you
I give it all that I've got, that's all I can do
When you're waiting for love I'll be waiting for you
(On the edge of a broken heart)
Only for you (On the edge of a broken heart)
Oh baby for you (On the edge of a broken heart)
So run if you can, you know I'm a man on the edge
(On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge (On the edge of a broken heart)
I'm on the edge
(On the edge of a broken, broken, broken, broken, broken, broken, broken)



Sympathy

Well you walked out the door just like a thief in the night
I guess you never even had the balls to say goodbye
You stole my heart and you took all the cash
You split with my soul and my stereo, left me with the trash

I never been nobody's Valentine and you never were a bride to be
I don't need you to be a friend of mine, I don't need no charity

Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't livin' 'round here no more
I don't want to taste your empathy
I don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby
Don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby

I bet your out on the streets, wrapped up in somebody's arms
Until it's time to pay the rent - you'll be gone, gone, gone
You got a suicide heart, you send it COD
Honey, I know your act, when you're sending it back don't come bitchin' to me
Who said love is just a sacrifice was a man in need of sympathy
It sure don't take too long to realize that you ain't getting none from me

Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't living 'round here no more
I don't want to taste your empathy
I don't want your sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby
Don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby

When I look back in time I see love ain't been no friend to me
I never been nobody's Valentine and you never were a bride to be

Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't livin' 'round here no more
Count up all the tears you've cried for me
Don't come knockin' on my back door
Love ain't livin' round here no more
I don't wanna taste your charity
I don't want no sympathy
I don't need no sympathy, baby
Don't want no sympathy
I don't need your sympathy, baby
I want no sympathy
I don't need no sympathy
I don't like no sympathy
I won't hear your sympathy, sympathy, sympathy, sympathy, not for me



Only in My Dreams

Barkeep pour me one last shot 'cause I must be on my way
Gotta make that same old stop that this soul makes everyday
Tell me why am I holding on? Harry, why is love like a flame?
It burns you when it's hot but Cupid's fire trucks never came
I can't bend the hands of time so I think myself to sleep
The way you never said goodbye if only in my dreams

Tell me where you want to go
Will you be what you want to be?
Are you longing for my touch?
It's only in my dreams
We sing the love songs you once sung
And the stars are so in reach
And I'll see the job gets done
If only in my dreams

Lord, I'd sacrifice my eyes; there's nothing else I'd rather see
And you can have my heart - it's of little use to me
And if you want my soul I'd throw it in for free
It's all I'm worth that's left since my angel got her wings
Now I'm down and on my knees; it's of little use to pray
Unless you give her back but there's no deals cut these days
They're only in my dreams

Tell me where you want to go
Tell me what you long to be
Are you longing for my touch?
If only in my dreams
We'll sing the love songs you once sung
Touch the stars they're all in reach
And I'll see the job gets done
If only in my dreams

Now I curse the daytime
When I'm alone at nighttime
'Cause I swore the sun shined just for you
And I know you anywhere
There ain't no pain, there ain't no tears
And if I have my way from the moment I get there

Take me where you wanna go
We'll be who you wanna be
All I needed was your touch
All I want is you and me
We'll sing the love songs you once sung
And you'll be in my dream
Until that war is one
It's only in my dreams



Shut Up And Kiss Me

I don't wanna talk about it
Baby wanna talk all night
You're on your feet six days a week
We're working nights just trying to make ends meet
We break our backs on the killing floor
Another guy's what's we're doing it for
We got a lot, we don't more

We're rolling, baby
Tell me when you go
Rolling, ready
Tell me where to go

I don't wanna watch the TV
Wash the dishes now or pay the bills
Don't wanna eat, don't need to sleep
The only real meal that gives me a thrill
Don't need no candles, you're the spark
Don't need no matches, just a fire in the dark
We come together and that's a good start

Baby, crazy
And I know that you can't hide
'Cause the earth anywhere
There up on the other side

We're rolling, baby
Tell me when you go
Rolling, ready
Tell me where to go

Baby, crazy
And I know that you can't hide
'Cause the earth anywhere
There up on the other side



Crazy Love

The city sounds like a symphony
A cabbie screams obscenities
The horns are honking jazz in the night
Her street is lit like a Christmas tree
This place is my amphetamine
She junks me but it's alright
In her summer dress she parts the sea
Her hair wrapped up in rosary beads
Everyone else is gone but her and me

Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again

Sitting on my stoop
I lit one up and put the ashes in my coffee cup
And watched the world passing me by
Throw a coat of paint on this rusty heart
Ain't it funny how life imitates art
Saint Valentine he's got bloody knees tonight
But when she's walking down the street
The sidewalk's there to kiss her feet

Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again

She needs me, pleads me
Wraps me in her loving charms
She'll tease me, squeeze me
But I'm the man when I'm in her arms
Now the angels sing a melody
That they wrote for her explicitly
That no one hears but her and me
Now wait a minute wait I can't believe my eyes
Who's that coming around the corner?
Ay, she's lookin' fine ain't she? get out the way!
No, no, no get out the way look at those high heel sneakers

Here she comes, it's crazy love
Here it comes again
That crazy thing called love
Here she comes, it's crazy love
That crazy thing called love



Lonely at the Top

Tell Frannie I'm sorry she didn't get to know her dad
I'll bet he's sorry he didn't get to know you too
Tell her there'll be people singing things that make her sad
How her daddy felt alone how he was hurtin' bad
I guess that won't be too far from the truth

Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Happy is one thing it's not.

I was jaded, suffocated, it got too hard to breath
But never got as high as I needed to be
You know life becomes worthless when they steal your dreams
I just couldn't live with what was left for me
And I couldn't run far enough from the truth, what's the use

Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Happy's one thing it's not

Before you know you find yourself alone and looking down
No one there can help you stop before you hit the ground
It's lonely at the top

Oooh yeah, ooooh yeah

Tell Frannie, I'm sorry I better kiss her when she cries
I'm sorry I left her, never said good-bye
Didn't mean to leave you all alone but then the music died
Though the song remains the same, I couldn't live that lie
You know that ain't too far from the truth
And you know that ain't too far from the truth

Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Happy's one thing it's not

Before you know you find yourself alone and looking down
No one there to help you stop before you hit the ground
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
Yeah, it's lonely at the top
It's lonely



Ordinary people

Little Jimmy just bought high top sneakers
Wants to fly high like his heroes can
Hes got the smile like Michael Jordan
In the schoolyard, Jimmy, hes the man
Im sitting here watching his heart beating
Hes ten feet tall, all five feet four of him
Come six oclock working out his foul shot
Who we fooling, Mamas calling, she smiles and says

You and me, were ordinary people
Living in our ordinary lives
We can be ordinary people
These are extraordinary times

She lives alone, got four kids through high school
She cleans houses and she takes in wash at night
Youd never know that she dont have much
Because shes rich with the things money cant buy
She dont need clothes, she dont want diamonds
Dont need a brand new car to drive in
What shes got is love and thats a lot
At least its a good start

You and me, were ordinary people
Living in our ordinary lives
We can be ordinary people
These are extraordinary times

Everybody wants to be somebody
Everybody wants to be someone
We only want to watch the game on Sunday
Sit back, catch a little buzz
Aint nobody wants to be nobody
Everybody wants a little love
Everybody wants to be the hero
And ride into the setting sun

You and me, were ordinary people
Living in our ordinary lives
We can be ordinary people
These are extraordinary times

And Ive got dreams like ordinary people
I can see them when I close my eyes at night
Cant you see were ordinary people
These are extraordinary times



Flesh and Bone

They judge you by your money
Or the color of your skin
They read you by the cover
Don't take time to read within
They judge you without jury
And you struggle to believe
No one could hear your story
Even justice had to leave

All I know (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
They build the walls around you
And they tell you you don't fit
And still you think you know me
You don't know the half of it
I'm a beggar, you're a savior
I'm your devil, you're a thief
I'll be here until you realize
I'm you and you are me

All that I know (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
All that I know (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Do the cuts bleed any different
On a pauper or a king?
When it comes down to dying
The crown don't mean a thing
No, no, no

(All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is on all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
(All we are is all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (All we are is on all alone)
Man is made of flesh & bone (Man is made of flesh & bone)



Satellite

Are you out there?
Can you hear me?
Do you know my whereabouts?
Do you know what I'm all about?
Through the static you're so close, so far away
Are you listening?

'Cause I'm lost I must confess
Throw a lifeline

In the deepest part of me

If I Can't Have Your Love

It's hard to remember a time
When I didn't have you, when I didn't have nothing but a cold bed to come to at night
That was all I knew, until there was you
And then you took my world and turned it all around
I couldn't leave without you now

Baby, if I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch I got nothing
Baby, if I can't taste your kiss then I don't exist
I got nothing
No I can't imagine living life without you

I can't imagine living life without your love
I wake up with you by my side
Can't let go, I can't even bear the thought of you in another man's eyes
I would lose control, I would die
'Cause now you're in my heart and I can't let you out
I gotta keep you here somehow

Baby, if I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch I got nothing
Baby, if I can't taste your kiss then I don't exist
I got nothing
If I can't be your man, I wouldn't know who I am
I got nothing
I got nothing

No, I can't imagine living life without you
I can't imagine living life without your love
'Cause I can't imagine living life without you
Can't imagine living life without your love
Believe me baby I don't mean to doubt you
But if you ever leave, that would be the end of me, baby

Baby, if I can't feel your touch I got nothing
Baby, if I can't taste your kiss then I don't exist
I got nothing
I got nothing
If I can't be your man, I wouldn't know who I am
I'd be nothing
Baby, if I can't have your love
If I can't feel your touch
I got nothing
No, I can't imagine living life without you
I can't imagine living life without your love



Real Life

I wish that life was like it is in the movies
Cause the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark, lonely road
At the end he's got a smile on his face
But when they threw me out to the lions
No one saved me as I fell from your grace
And no one wrote me new lines for what I said wrong
And what I did wrong I could not erase

This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide

I wish that I could be a white knight in armor
With an army just to bring you back home
But I'll admit I'm scared of dialing your number
And someone else is gonna answer the phone
Why can't it be like it is on TV
When the orchestra plays and you come back to me

This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide
This is real life, this is real love
These are real wounds that I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real

I always thought that our love was a story book tale
God knows that I'd never dream in the end it would fail

Cause this is real life, this is real love
This is real pain that much I'm sure of
These are real tears, these are real fears inside that I can't hide
This is real life, this is real love
These are real wounds that I'm bleeding from
And I realize this is real
This is real life, this is real love
This is real pain, that much Im sure of



Memphis Lives in Me

There's a town that I call home
Where all the streets are paved with soul
Down on Beale there's a honky-tonk bar
So hear the wail of a blues guitar
Have a beer and drop a dime in the blind man's jar
The blues sing softly in the air like a Sunday morning prayer
Just one more drink and you'll see God everywhere
Like a sad old melody that cheers you up, it sets you free
That's how Memphis lives in me
There comes a time when muddy waters run rough
There comes a point when a man has had enough
Like a friend that always stands by me
Memphis knows me
Never showed me
How did life just had to be
I couldn't even try to run away, say goodbye
Here I was born and here is where I'll die
I'm just a man from Tennessee
I can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives in me
I said I'm just a man from Tennessee
Can't be what I can't be
All I know is Memphis lives
All I know is Memphis gives
All I know is Memphis lives in me



Too Much of a Good Thing

Love is like quicksand
It's always bringing me down
But I still keep coming back for more
And like an addiction
One is never enough
I'm like a junkie at your door
Too much of a good thing is like getting high and coming down
My heart's on a string
I've been blind to the sting
Getting much too much of a good thing
I came to your party
And stayed a little to late
You woke up naked on the floor
You are my strongest weakness
And I don't want nothing else
You got the fix I'm looking for
Too much of a good thing will turn your whole world upside down

My heart's on a string
I've been blind to the sting
Getting much too much of a good thing
She's my favorite disease
Makes me crawl on my knees
Getting much too much of a good thing
Like you partied all night and you're too trashed from drinking
The only way out is another shot glass to sink in
Tell me, baby, what'll it take
I keep making the same mistakes

My heart's on a string
I was blind to the sting
Getting much too much of a good thing
And I know it's no good
Yeah, I'd quit if I could
Getting much too much
Getting much too much
Oh, it's just too much of a good thing

Love Ain't Nothing But a Four Letter Word

She was waiting alone at the station praying for her train to arrive
Thinking bout her destination, the tattered bag had all she had in life
She turned her back on her family, she turned her back on her friends
She turned her back on a married man when she took off that wedding band

She said, Im giving up, silver clouds have turned to grey
Had enough, theres got to be a better way
Giving up, you know youve gotta walk
Theres some things in life still worth fighting for

Aint no big secret so forget all you heard
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
For some its for better, for some its for worse
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing

This time he said was the last time, last time he said just the same
In your heart you know that theyll be a next time
That your battered bones would have to explain

Givein up, nothings changing but the score
Had enough, every night love turns to war
Give it up, gave it all and wanted more
It aint nothing worth dying for

Its no big secret so forget all you heard
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
For some its a blessing, for some its a curse
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing

Forget your mamas rosary beads to get you through this time of need
You know you gotta cross that line
You take it one day at a time

Had enough, the silver clouds all turning grey
Im heading for a better day

No big secret so forget all you heard
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
For some its for better, for some its for worse
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing (it aint nothing now, baby)
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing (nothing now, baby)
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word
Love aint nothing
Love aint nothing but a four-letter word



River Runs Dry

I didn't want to say it in this way
I didn't want to see the day I'd say these words to you
I didn't want have to explain
Sometimes heroes have to lose
It's killing me to see you cry
Would it make it any better if I told you I did it all for you
It was just another roll of the dice
Just another star in the sky
Tried to touch it but I couldn't fly

Everybody knows the promise of the river
Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes
Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water
But there's nothing anybody can do

Rivers run dry
Gonna have to go away
I always told you that a man has got to face his own mistakes
Sometimes you get a lucky break
Sometimes your winning streak will stay
Sometimes you gotta pay

Everybody knows the promise of the river
Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes
Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water
But there's nothing anybody can do

When the rivers run dry
Oh, I remember when the rivers ran high
Oh, we could make it to the other side
Make it to the other side

Everybody knows the promise of the river
Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes
Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water
But there's nothing anybody can do
Oh, there's nothing anybody can do
There's nothing anybody can do
When the rivers run dry
When the rivers run dry



Always

This romeo is bleeding
But you can't see his blood
It's nothing but some feelings
That this old dog kicked up

It's been raining since you left me
Now I'm drowning in the flood
You see I've always been a fighter
But without you I give up
Now I can't sing a love song
Like the way it's meant to be
Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore
But baby, that's just me

And I will love you, baby - Always
And I'll be there forever and a day - Always
I'll be there till the stars don't shine
Till the heavens burst and
The words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you - Always

Now your pictures that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life
Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry
One that made you have to say goodbye
What I'd give to run my fingers through your hair
To touch your lips, to hold you near
When you say your prayers try to understand
I've made mistakes, I'm just a man

When he holds you close, when he pulls you near
When he says the words you've been needing to hear
I'll wish I was him 'cause those words are mine
To say to you till the end of time

Yeah, I will love you baby - Always
And I'll be there forever and a day - Always

If you told me to cry for you
I could
If you told me to die for you
I would
Take a look at my face
There's no price I won't pay
To say these words to you
Well, there ain't no luck
In these loaded dice
But baby if you give me just one more try
We can pack up our old dreams
And our old lives
We'll find a place where the sun still shines

And I will love you, baby - Always
And I'll be there forever and a day - Always
I'll be there till the stars don't shine
Till the heavens burst and
The words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you - Always



River Runs Dry

I get up every morning, drink coffee alone
My house it too quiet; I'm the only one home
I let the newspapers pile up at the door
I can't be bothered; I don't read 'em no more
The flowers are blooming, the ones you planted last spring
I can't make much sense out of anything

If I could kidnap an angel
I'd clip off his wings
And bring them to you
That would fix everything

I get in the car like I do every day
Wondering how in the world did it turn out this way?
It's just 'round the corner, turn left and I'm there
I'd do anything to be anywhere but here

If I could kidnap an angel
I'd clip off his wings
And bring them to you
That would fix everything

If I could kidnap an angel
He could teach us to fly
We'd live forever, forever
We'd never die

If I could kidnap an angel
Now the parking attendant knows my first name
These long green hallways all look the same
There's four elevators, one goes to that floor
I brace myself when I get to the door
I close my eyes and take a deep breath
Then sit down beside your hospital bed

If I could kidnap an angel
I'd clip off his wings
I'd bring them to you
That would fix everything

If I could kidnap an angel
He could teach us to fly
We'd live forever, forever
We'd never die

If I could kidnap an angel
If I could kidnap an angel
He'd say the word
He'd tear down these walls

People laughing like children through these hospital halls
There'd be no more tears
There'd be no more blood
There'd be nothing but smiles
Nothing but love
If I could kidnap an angel
If I could kidnap an angel



Breathe

What's the world coming to?
Where are we all running to?
Not all our dreams are coming true
We can't let it break us
In two hearts that beat as one
Can't let the clouds cover the sun
If I'm ramblin' I'm guilty of wearing my heart on my sleeve

When it hurts, breathe
When it burns, breathe
The feeling inside you is feeling like I do
Take a breath, breathe
Let it out, breathe
Just close your eyes, don't hold it inside you
Breathe

She said, baby you look down tonight
There's something wrong and that ain't right
I hear you talking in your sleep
I want to dive into your dreams and wrap my loving arms around you
Protect you when the waves crash down on you
When you're lost and you're scared, I'll be the air

When it hurts, breathe
When it burns, breathe
The feeling inside you is feeling like I do
Take a breath, breathe
Let it out, breathe, Just close your eyes
Don't close it inside you
Breathe

When you give and you take and it feels like something breaks
It's alright. Breathe.

When it hurts, breathe
When in doubt, breathe
When it burns, breathe
Let it out, breathe
When you give, breathe
When you love, breathe
When you live, breathe
When you touch, breathe
If all that we've got is each other
Than all that we got is a lot
When it hurts, breathe
When it burns, breathe
The feeling inside you is feeling like I do
Take a breath, breathe
Let it out, breathe
Just close your eyes, don't hold it inside you
Breathe.



Out of Bounds

A loaded gun needs no alibis
Out on the street where the truth's a lie
Wasted blood that I left behind
Broken hearts leave a young man blind
I need protection on the underground
I'm going down, down, down, down, down

Out of bounds
You can cross that line
Out of bounds
Is out of time
Out of bounds
Is where I'll be
I can't hold on but I can't break free
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
Out of bounds
Out of bounds

You're asking why but who's to say
The things you've done haven't gone away
Nowhere to run, no one to blame
I'm just a puppet in a bad man's game
I need protection on the underground
I'm going down, down, down, down, down

Out of bounds
You can cross that line
Out of bounds
Is out of time
Out of bounds
Is where I'll be
I can't hold on but I can't break free
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
Out of bounds
Out of bounds

So say a prayer for the innocent
It's the innocent who believe
You can't forgive what you can't forget
When that innocent man was me

Out of bounds
You can cross that line
Out of bounds
Is out of time
Out of bounds
Is where I'll be
I can't hold on but I can't break free
I'm going down, down, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down down
Out of bounds



Letter to a Friend

I'll be there to hold you by the hand
When you need someone to walk you home
You know that I'll be there to understand
When you call me on the phone
I'll be there to watch you when you sleep
When you close your eyes at night
And I'll be there to keep your secrets kept,
Cross my heart, hope to die
I swear each word is true
There's only one thing I wouldn't do
I'll be there when you need a real friend
I'll be there to listen to your secrets
I'll be there and give you all I've got
I'll be there when you paint your masterpiece
And I'll be right beside your every move
I'll give you my eyes so you can see
And I'll help you to find the things you've lost
When you're busting at the seams
I swear each word is true
There's only one thing I wouldn't do
I ain't gonna love you
I ain't gonna love you

Nobody wants you like I want you
Nobody needs you like I need you
You know I would beg and plead, get down on my knees
I'd do most anything, it's true
But I ain't gonna love you
I ain't gonna love you
'Cause I love you

I'll be there to love the things you love
I'll be the one who knows your middle name
Be the only one that you can trust
I'll give you the blood that's in my veins
I swear these words are true
There's only one thing I wouldn't do
I ain't gonna love you

'Cause nobody wants you like I want you
Nobody needs you like I need you
You know I would beg and please, get down on my knees
Do most anything for you
But I ain't gonna love you
I ain't gonna love
'Cause I love you
Because I love you




Templatation

Place my missing picture on my beer I'm running away from home
Sam, I'm just a man, a rusted bucket of flesh and bone
Someday I'll seek forgiveness for the sweet smell of her breath
She touched my hand and asked for a check, I put out my cigarette

Temptation
Temptation
Go home, Lord
I'm walking straight into the ocean
Tell the tide I'm on my way
I'm gonna hang my head down tonight on Damocles' sword

When the angels hung out in Eden they saw Adam chasing Eve
They said grab your boots, your coat, your hat
My boy, it's time that you leave
She asked me if I'd like to play but she knew that I was broke
I cashed in the my chips a month ago
This smile's just mirrors and smoke

Temptation
Temptation
Go home, Lord
I'm walking straight into the ocean
Tell the tide I'm on my way
I'm gonna hang my head down tonight on Damocles' sword

Twist my wrist
Tell me I should resist
But the flesh is weak
Here comes the kiss
Twist my wrist
I can't go on like this
The flesh is weak
Here it comes here it comes.

Temptation
Temptation
Go home, Lord
I'm walking straight into the ocean
Tell the tide I'm on my way
I'm gonna hang my head down tonight on Damocles' sword
I'm gonna hang my head down tonight on Damocles' sword



Gotta Have a Reason

Here we stand, caught between the cradle and the grave
In a world that gives you nothing but your name
With every step you take you must be brave
Nothing lost is nothing gained

And I know lives are lost for crowns and kings
We all know love is lost for lesser things
And the angels here have broken wings
Though I know somewhere a choir sings

You gotta have a reason
A reason to believe
A reason just to dream
Sometimes it takes blind eyes to see
A reason to believe

A hot-headed hero, here you see I'm just a man
Comes a time, a time to make a stand
So here I am with heart in hand
Don't be afraid to understand

You gotta have a reason
One reason to believe
A reason just to dream
Sometimes it takes blind eyes to see
A reason to believe in trust,

I believe in faith
I believe in us
'Til my dying day
You gotta have a reason
You gotta have a reason
If all we've got is you and me
Then what we've got is all we need

You gotta have as reason
One reason to believe
A reason just to dream
But sometimes it takes blind eyes to see
One reason

You gotta have a reason
One reason to believe
A reason just to dream
But sometimes it takes blind eyes to see
One reason

Gotta have a reason
Gotta have a reason
One reason to believe
A reason just to dream



All I Wanna Do is You

Working hard eight days a week
Most days we got no time to speak
I feel like I'm chasing after my own life
Girl can't you see you're my only vice

Take the phone off the hook
Turn the lights down low
We'll play some old Sam Cooke
Baby, let yourself go

All I wanna do is you
All I wanna do is you
I'll do anything you want me to
All I wanna do is you

I don't care what kinda clothes you wear
It doesn't matter how you do your hear
I don't need no champagne on ice
Girl, can't you see that you're my only vice

Turn the whole world off
Keep your high heels on
Take it nice and slow
And make it last 'til dawn

All I wanna do is you
All I wanna do is you
I'll do anything you want me to
All I wanna do is you

I don't wanna eat
I don't wanna sleep
Don't wanna sit around and watch TV
When you're next to me it's where I wanna be

All I wanna, all I wanna, all I wanna do
All I wanna do is you
All I wanna do is you
I'll do anything you want me to
All I wanna do is you



Billy

Since you're been gone now honey life ain't nothing but sad luck days
I begged on my knees now, sugar
You acted like you never knew my name

My friends saw you at the station
I guess you must have missed your train
Tell me is it 'cause you love me, Billy
Or is it just because you love the pain?

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

How come you're sad when I get happy?
Why do you laugh when I want to cry?
Tell me why when I say I need you
You turn around and you say goodbye

Why do you think that a heart's so fragile?
Can you tell me why love's so blind?
Just like a magnet you pull me under
I can't resist you, we're two of a kind

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

Billy , Billy
We're better lovers than friends
Life is like a movie but this ain't pretend
There really doesn't have to be a happy end

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

I never said you had to walk on water
Or that I could ever stop the rain
Some times we break up just to make up, baby
And we don't care who's to blame

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

Billy, Billy Can we be lovers and friends
Life if like a movie but this ain't pretend
There really doesn't have to be a happy end



Nobody's Hero

You're afraid and it feels like you're too tired to fight
Even your heart don't know if you're still alive
Man, you never felt so all alone in this world tonight
And I, don't you know that I felt the same?
I've seen this storm, I've been through the rain
You've gotta know that I feel your pain
Don't be afraid
When you're on the edge, I will rescue you
When you need a friend, I'll be there for you

I'm nobody's hero
For you I'd lay down my life
Nobody's hero
But I'd tear down the stars from the sky
If you would lean on me, baby, dream on me
You can bleed on me, just believe in me
Nobody's hero

Well out on these streets
They're waiting for blind eyes to see
They're waiting for our cuts to bleed
Out here they're waiting for you and me
Well alright, alright
'Cause this time you know I ain't afraid to fight
For you I ain't afraid to die
As long as you are by my side it will be alright
When all faith is gone, I will pray for you
Just keep holding on, I'll be there for you

I'm nobody's hero
For you I'd lay down my life
Nobody's hero
But I'd tear down the stars from the sky
If you lean on me, you can bleed on me
Baby, dream on me just believe in me
Nobody's hero

I'm nobody's hero
But for you I'd lay down my life
Nobody's here
But I'd tear down the stars from the sky
If you lean on me, you can bleed on me
Baby, dream on me, just believe in me
I'm nobody's hero
Nobody's hero
Baby, lean on me, you can dream on me
Just bleed on me, just believe in me
