Well it's been a long time glad to see your face
I knew we'd meet again another time another place
Can't believe it's been so many years
You'd better grab a chair and a couple of beers
Lookin' good in your three piece suit
You know I always knew you'd take the business route
You were always the one to follow the light and you look like you're doing alright

Been singin' for my rent and singin' for my supper
I'm above the below and below the upper
I'm stuck in the middle where money gets tight
But I guess I'm doin' alright

I'm all I'm all I'm alright
It's a beautiful day not a cloud in sight so I guess I'm doin' alright
O- oh o-oh, I'm alright
Got a good old friend here with me tonight and I guess I'm doin' alright

Well we had a lot of dreams when we were younger
They thought we were crazy but we had the hunger
We kept a lot of friends skipped a lot of class
Been on top of the world and knocked on our
We lost touch, we lost in love
We lost our minds when things got tough but
Beatin' time is a losin' fight and I guess I'm doin' alright

I'm all I'm all I'm alright
It's a beautiful day not a cloud in sight so I guess I'm doin' alright
O-oh o-oh I'm alright
I got a good old friend here with me tonight and I guess I'm doin' alright
Well I guess I'm doin' alright

Well I hate to see this evening end
God only knows when I'll see you again
Just send a fax or send me a letter or give me a call that would even be better
Give the kids a kiss for me and say hello to the family
And tell them all my future's lookin' bright
Well I miss 'em but I'm doin' alright
I said I miss 'em but I'm doin' alright

I'm all I'm all I'm alright
It's a beautiful day not a cloud in sight so I guess I'm doin' alright
O-oh o-oh, I'm alright
Got a good old friend here with me tonight and I guess I'm doin' alright
Well I guess I'm doin' alright

He left me cryin' late one Sunday night outside of Boulder
He said he had to find himself out on the road
I guess when love goes wrong
You've gotta learn to be strong

So I worked two jobs and I moved three times
I ended up south of Memphis workin' down in Riverside
I may not be so lucky in love
But the one thing I'm sure of

I want a man that stands beside me
Not in front of or behind me
Give me two arms that want to hold me not own me
And I'll give all the love in my heart
Stand beside me
Be true don't tell lies to me
I'm not lookin' for a fantasy
I want a man that who stands beside me

I didn't expect to see him one hot July morning
His hair was longer but his eyes were the same old blue
He said, I've missed you for so long. Oh baby, what can I do
I said, I want a man that stands beside me
Not in front of or behind me
Give me two arms that want to hold me not own me
And I'll give all the love in my heart

It's hard to tell him no when I want him so bad
But I've got to be true to my heart This time

I'm not lookin' for a fantasy
I want a man who stands beside me
I want a man
Who stands beside me
Stand beside me

Pick up any morning paper
Turn on the 6 o'clock news
The devil's been so busy lately
That even God must get the blues

A young man lies there in the street
His life gone like it was nothin' to lose
And for the shoes there on his feet
Yes even God must get the blues

When this rain falls down from heaven
It must be the angels cryin'
For all the sorrow in the world tonight

A young girl hides her face in shame
So they can't see it's been battered and bruised
Like she's the one to blame
Yes even God must get the blues

Pick up any evening paper
Turn on the 10 o'clock news
The devil's been so busy lately
That even God must get the blues

I gave you everything I had
Oh but it wasn't enough
It don't seem right to hurt so bad
When all you're giving is love
You wouldn't let me love you
You're just too hard to hold
I gotta break the chains that bind me
So I'm

Gonna take a cab, take a train
Maybe a limousine
Anything to get me out of here
Ain't no way around it
Oh no doubt about it
One thing is clear
Oh there's no time for tears
Oh no

A wall too steep too high to climb
Is protecting your heart
I tried to break through time after time
Oh but it keeps us apart
I've cried enough to know that
It's killing me to stay
I'd rather be alone
Than hurt this way

Gonna take a cab, take a train
Maybe a limousine
Anything to get me out of here
Ain't no way around it
Oh no doubt about it
One thing is clear
Oh there's no time for tears

The time has come
To move ahead
And find what waits for me
Ooh whoa whoa

Gonna take a cab, take a train
Maybe a limousine
Anything to get me out of here
Ain't no way around it
Oh no doubt about it
One thing is clear
Oh there's no time for
No time for, no time for
There's no time for tears
Oh no
No time for tears
Yeah
No time for, no time for tears
No time for tears

. . .




Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in leavin'
Somebody's gonna give you back what you've been givin'
And I hope that I'm around
To watch 'em knock you down
It's like you to love 'em and leave 'em
Just like you loved me and left me
It's like you to do that sort of thing
Over and over again
You're a fool-hearted man

I hear you've been askin' about me
From some of my friends
Well you'd better believe I'm not goin'
Through that again
You're the kind of man a woman thinks she can change
Oh, but the only thing changin' is my way of thinkin'
And I'm thinkin' that maybe someday

Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in losin'
Somebody's gonna do to you what you've been doin'
And I hope that I'm around
To watch 'em knock you down
Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in hurtin'
Somebody's gonna leave you with your fire burnin'
And no way to put it out
Baby there ain't no doubt
You're a fool-hearted man

Yeah, you're the kind of man
A woman thinks she can change
But the only thing changin'
Is my way of thinkin'
And I'm thinkin' that maybe someday

Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in leavin'
Somebody's gonna give you back what you've been givin'
And I hope that I'm around
To watch 'em knock you down
It's like you to love 'em and leave 'em
Just like you loved me and left me
It's like you to do that sort of thing
Over and over again
You're a fool-hearted man

Somebody's gonna give you a lesson in leavin'
Somebody's gonna give you back what you've been givin'
And I hope that I'm around
To watch 'em knock you down
It's like you to love 'em and leave 'em
Just like you loved me and left me
It's like you to do that sort of thing
Over and over again
You're a fool-hearted man

Oh, a fool-hearted man
Oh, whoa

Boy you sure look good there standin' in the doorway in the sunset light
Maybe I read you wrong thinkin' you could be my Mr. Right
I was puttin' my heart and soul on the line
Said you needed some time, just a little more time to make up your mind
Well it's been long enough
Time is up

Bye bye love, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
I ain't never lookin' back. And that's a fact.
I've tried all I can imagine
I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
I've got pride, I'm takin' it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

Don't think all those tears are gonna hold me here like they've done before
You'll find what's left of us in a cloud of dust on highway 4
Baby what did you expect me to do
Just sit around and wait on you
Well I'm through watchin' you just skate around the truth
And I know it sounds trite
I've seen the light

Bye bye love, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
'Cause I ain't never lookin' back, and that's a fact.
I've tried all I can imagine
I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
I've got pride, I'm takin' it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

I'd lost the game I guess
I did my best to win the part
Now I'm leavin' here with what's left of my heart.
Bye bye, I'll catch you later
Got a lead foot down on my accelerator and the rearview mirror torn off
'Cause I ain't never lookin' back.
You can count on that.
I've tried all I can imagine
I've begged and pleaded in true lover's fashion
I've got pride, I'm takin' it for a ride
Bye bye, bye bye my baby, bye bye

Bye bye
Ooh baby
Oh oh

Watched him comin' up Winslow down South Park Boulevard
Lookin' good from tail to hood
Great big fins and painted steel
Man it looked just like the Batmobile
With my old man behind the wheel
Well you could hardly even see him in all of that chrome
The man with a plan and a pocket comb
But every night it carried him home
And I could hear him sayin'

Don't you give me no Buick
Girl you must take my word
If there's a God up in Heaven
He's got a silver Thunderbird
You can keep your El Dorado
Man the foreign car's absurd
Me I wanna go down
In a silver Thunderbird

He got up every morning while I was still asleep
I remember the sound of him shufflin' around
Right before the crack of dawn
Is when I heard him turn his motor on
And when I got up they were gone
Down the road in the rain and snow
The man and his machine would go
Oh, the secrets that old car would know
Sometimes I hear him sayin'

Don't you give me no Buick
Girl you must take my word
If there's a God up in Heaven
He's got a silver Thunderbird
You can keep your El Dorado
Man the foreign car's absurd
Me I wanna go down
In a silver Thunderbird

Down the road in the rain and snow
The man and his machine would go
Oh, the secrets that old car would know
Sometimes I hear him sayin'

Don't you give me no Buick
Girl you must take my word
If there's a God up in Heaven
He's got a silver Thunderbird
You can keep your El Dorado
Man the foreign car's absurd
Me I wanna go down
In a silver Thunderbird
Ah me I wanna go down

. . .



Look at who the wind's blowin' up the road
Shining like a northern star
Actin' like the answers to all my prayers
But baby, I know what you really are

So don't you knock on my door
I won't be home anymore
You can find me out walking in the sun
Oh you hide it so well
It isn't easy to tell
But I know a heartache when I see one

There was a time I was a true believer
Your love was the only way
Well you can save all your sweet talkin' for some other fool
Only a fool would believe what you say

So don't you knock on my door
I won't be home anymore
You can find me out walking in the sun
Oh, you hide it so well
It isn't easy to tell
But I know a heartache when I see one

Time is a teacher oh and it's taught me well
The loser is the one who cries
And when you've cried like a baby and you've hurt like hell
You know the devil by the look in his eyes

So don't you knock on my door
I won't be home anymore
You can find me out walking in the sun
Oh, you hide it so well
It isn't easy to tell
But I know a heartache when I see one

So don't you knock on my door
I won't be home anymore
You can find me out walking in the sun
Oh, you hide it so well
It isn't easy to tell
But I know a heartache when I see one

. . .



I don't know how I survived
In this cold and empty world for all this time
I only know that I'm alive
Because you love me

When I recall what I've been through
There's some things
That I wish I didn't do
Now I do the things I do
Because you love me

And now that you're in my life
I'm so glad I'm alive
'Cause you showed me the way
And I know now how good it can be
Because you love me

And now that you're in my life
Oh, I'm so glad I'm alive
'Cause you showed me the way
And I know now how good it can be
Because you love me

I believe in things unseen
I believe in the message of a dream
And I believe in what you are
Because you love me

With all my heart and all my soul
I'm loving you and I never will let go
And every day I'll let it show
Because you love me
Because you love me

. . .



I'm not afraid
I can count on you
To catch me now
I'll just let go
One thing is true you won't let me down
With your arms around to

Cover me
With the sweetest touch I've ever known
Cover me
You won't let me face love alone

I know that smile
It's like a shelter over me
Your arms will reach me wherever my heart leads
I'll blindly believe you'll

Cover me
With the sweetest touch I've ever known
Cover me
You won't let me face love alone

Cover me
I lay beneath the sky above
I close my eyes and let your love
Cover me

Cover me
With the sweetest touch I've ever known
Cover me
You won't let me face love alone

Cover me
With the sweetest touch I've ever known
Cover me
You won't let me face love alone

Cover me
Cover me
