Hold on
I'll be back for you
It won't be long
But for now there's something else
That's calling me
So take me down a lonesome road
Point me east and let me go
That suitcase weighs me down
With memories

I just wanna be the one you run to
I just wanna be the one you come to
I just wanna be there for someone
When the night comes
Let's put all the cares behind us
And go where they'll never find us
I just wanna be there beside you
When the night comes
When the night comes

Two spirits in the night
That can leave before the morning light
When there's nothing left to lose
And nothing left to fear
So meet me on the edge of town
Won't keep you waiting I'll be 'round
Then you and I
We'll just roll right out of here

I just wanna be the one you run to
I just wanna be the one you come to
I just wanna be there for someone
When the night comes
Let's put all the cares behind us
And go where they'll never find us
I just wanna be there beside you
When the night comes
When the night comes

I know there'll be a time for you and I
Just take my hand and run away
Think of all the pieces of the shattered dream
We're gonna make it out some day
We'll be coming back
Coming back to stay
When the night comes

I wanna be the one you run to
When the night comes
To be the one you'd come to
I wanna be the one you run to
Ooh
I just wanna be the one you run to
Wanna be the one you come to
I just wanna be there for someone
When the night comes
Let's put all the cares behind us
And go where they'll never find us
I just wanna be there beside you
When the night comes
When the night comes
Ah ah when the night comes
When the night rolls down
Ah ah when the night comes
I wanna be with you
Ah ah when the night comes
Oh ah when the night comes in
Ah ah oh
Ah ah when the night comes
When the night comes
Ah ah when the night comes
I wanna be right by your side
Ah ah when the night comes
Yes baby
Ah ah oh
Don't do that to me woman
Ah ah oh
Ever stayed when the night time gets in here
Ah ah when the night comes
I wanna rise and up in the
When the night comes
Ah ah when the night comes
Ah ah oh
Love me

Unchain my heart
Baby let me be
'Cause you don't care
Let me
Set me free

Unchain my heart
Baby let me go
Unchain my heart
'Cause you don't love me no more
Every time I call you on the phone
Some fella tells me that you're not at home
Unchain my heart
Set me free

Unchain my heart
Baby let me be
Unchain my heart
'Cause you don't care about me
You've got me sowed up like a mellow case
But you let my love go to waste
Unchain my heart
Set me free

I'm under your spell
Like a man in a trance baby
Oh but you're no doubt aware
That I don't stand a chance
Unchain my heart
Let me me go my way
Unchain my heart
You are in me night and day
Why leave me two a life of misery
When you don't care about the beans for me
Unchain my heart oh please
Set me free
Alright
I'm under your spell
Just like a man in a trance oh baby
But you're no doubt aware
That I don't stand a chance
Please unchain my heart
Let me go my way
Unchain my heart
You are in my night and day
Why leave me to a life of misery
When you don't care about the beans for me
Unchain my heart
Please set me free
Oh set me free
Oh woman why don't you do that for me
You don't care
Won't you let me go
That you don't love me no more
Like a man in a trance
let me go
I'm under your spell
Like a man in a trance
And you're no doubt aware
That I don't stand a chance no
Oh
You don't care
Please set me free

. . .


Baby, take off your coat...real slow
Baby, take off your shoes...here, I'll take your shoes
Baby, take off your dress
Yes, yes, yes
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on

Go on over there and turn on the light...no, all the lights
Now come back here and stand on this chair...that's right
Raise your arms up in to the air...shake 'em
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live
You give me a reason to live

Suspicious minds are talking
Trying to tear us apart
They say that my love is wrong
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
They don't know what love is
I know what love is

. . .


Woman of the country now I've found you
Longing in your soft and fertile delta.
And I whisper sighs to satisfy your longing
for the warmth and tender shelter of my body.
Oh you're my, yes you're my Delta Lady
Yes, you're my, me oh my, Delta Lady.

Please don't ask how many times I found you
Standing wet and naked in the garden.
And I think of days and diff'rent ways I held you,
Held you closely to me, yes our heart was beating.
Oh you're my .....

Oh, and I'm over here in England;
But I think of you, think about you ....
Because I love you,

There are concrete mountains in the city
And pretty city women live inside them.
And yet it seems the city scene is lacking.
I'm so glad you're waiting for me in the country.
Oh you're my ....

. . .


Baby, do you understand me now,
Sometimes I feel a little mad.
But, don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel.
When things go wrong I feel real bad.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree,
With a joy that's hard to hide.
And sometimes it seems that, all I have to do is worry
And then you're bound to see my other side.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

If I seem edgy,
I want you to know,
That I never mean to take it out on you.

Life has its problems,
And I get my share,
And that's one thing I never mean to do,

'Cause I love you,
Oh,

Oh, oh, oh, baby - don't you know I'm human.
I have thoughts like any other one.
Sometimes I find myself, Lord, regretting,
Some foolish thing - some little simple thing I've done.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.
(repeat)
(repeat)

As I Walk This Land Of Broken Dreams
I Have Visions Of Many Things
Happiness Is Just An Illusion
Filled With Sadness And Confusion

What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted
Who Have Love That's Now Departed
I Know Iv'e Got To Find Some Kind Of Piece Of Mind

Roots Of Love Grow All Around
But For Me They Come Tumbling Down
Every Day Heart Aches Grow A Little Stronger
I Can't Stand This Pain Much Longer

Walk In Shadows Searching For Light
Cold And Alone No Comfort In Sight
Hoping And Praying For Someone To Care
Always Moving But Going No Where

What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted
Who Have Love That's Now Departed
I Know Iv'e Got To Find Some Kind Of Piece Of Mind

I'm Searching Though I Don't Succeed
But Someones Love Leaves A Growing Need
Always Lost Theres No Place For Beginning
All That??S Left Is An Unhappy Ending

What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted
Who Have Love That's Now Departed
I Know Iv'e Got To Find Some Kind Of Piece Of Mind

. . .


In my life
I've seen sorrow
Heartache and pain
I've been burned by the sunshine
And drowned in pouring rain
Had too many lovers
And enough love
I've been trialed and convicted
For things I'm not guilty of
I was locked in a prison
Till you came and set me free
So how can you say
You're no good for me

Now that the magic has gone
You just wanna walk away
Nothing left to say, anyway
Now that the magic has gone
There's no sense in holding on
Baby now, now that the magic is gone

You know love can be tender
Love can be cruel
It can smile like an angel
While it treats you just like a fool
it captures and haunts you
Until you give in
And it stats the dice against you
in a game you never can win
Just when I was thinking
Maybe luck was here with me
You're telling me it's over
Say it's time for breaking free

Now that the magic has gone
You just wanna walk away
Nothing left to say
Anyway baby
Now that magic has gone
There's no sense in holding on
Baby now
Now that the magic has gone

I won't try to hold you down
My mind tells me let go
But my heart keeps asking how
There's no prices for the loser
Only the winner takes the purse
Some say that love is a blessing
But to me it's just a curse

Now that the magic has gone
You just wanna walk away
Nothing left to say
Ain't it babe
Now that the magic has gone
There's no sense in holding on
Baby, now that the magic has gone
Now that the magic has gone
You just wanna walk away
Nothing left to say

. . .


She came in through the bathroom window
Protected by a silver spoon
But now she sucks her thumb and wanders
By the banks of her own lagoon

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me

She said she'd always been a dancer
She worked at 15 clubs a day
And though she thought I knew the answer
Well I knew what I could not say.

And so I quit the police department
And got myself a steady job
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal but she could not rob

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me
Oh yeah.

. . .


Who knows what tomorrow brings
In a world, few hearts survive
All I know is the way I feel
When it's real, I keep it alive

The road is long, there are mountains in our way
But we climb a step every day

Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry on a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know, up where the clear winds blow

Some hang on to "used to be"
Live their lives, looking behind
All we have is here and now
All our life, out there to find

The road is long, there are mountains in our way,
But we climb them a step every day

Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry on a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know, up where the clear winds blow

Time goes by
No time to cry
Life's you and I
Alive, today

Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry on a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know, up where the clear winds blow

. . .


Sometimes love can't explain
Each and every rule of the game
Still remains a mystery to me
By any other name

Why she can't make up her mind
While he decides to stay
While one surrenders
And the other one's away
But it's too much to understand
Still a man loves a woman; and

When a woman loves a man
A woman loves a man
She does what she can do
He does the best he can

When a woman loves a man
A woman loves a man
She does what she can do
He does the best he can

And I look into her eyes
When the world is out of hand
And I'm so happy

When a woman loves a man
When a woman loves a man
A woman loves a man.....
A woman loves a man

No moon tonight
No nothing to guide me
Still I will find her
Standing beside me

No moon tonight
There's nothing to guide me
But still I will find her
Standing beside me

Theres darkness everywhere
Still I'll find her
Standing beside me
Standing beside me

She's a woman of strength
He's a man of conviction
But sometimes the truth
Is stronger than fiction

When a woman loves a man
A woman loves a man
She does what she can do
He does the best he can

When a woman loves a man
When that woman loves a man
She does what she can do
He does the best he can

No moon tonight
No nothing to guide me
Still I will find her
Standing beside me

No moon tonight
No nothing to guide me
Still I will find her
Standing beside me

No moon tonight
Nothing to guide me
Still I will find her
Standing beside me

When a woman loves a man
A woman loves a man
She does what she can do
But I do all I can...

When a woman loves a man...

. . .


You made me need you
Need you so bad
Would you believe
And never so mad, oh yeah
Double cross me once, and never cross me again
Now you're running 'round looking for some sympathy
Well you know as well as I that we're history

You're lucky, I'm a civlized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh yeah, a civilized man

A poison arrow, right from the start
Right down to zero, you went for my heart
Oh yeah
You've been hoo doo, voodoo
Start the fire again
Now you ask me to forget all you've brought me to
When you know as well as I you've got it coming to you

You're lucky, I'm a civlized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh yeah, a civilized man

You've been hoo doo, voodoo
Start the fire again
Now you're running 'round looking for some sympathy
Well you know as well as I that we're history

You're lucky, I'm a civlized man
You're lucky, I'm a civilized man
Oh you're so lucky baby
For I'm a civilized boy
Oh yeah
That's what I am, oh

. . .


This ain't no place for losers
Or the innocent of mind
It's a full time job
For anyone, to stay alive
The streets have shallow boundaries
For the war that's everyone
What a wasteland for
Broken dreams and hired guns
Shelter me, baby shelter me
When I'm sitting like I'm losing ground
Shelter me
I've gone to sleep
But when I open
The other goes my tears
In the darkness
I can I can hide my heart
But non of my fears
In the morning
Like a soldier
I look closed up battleground
Another day
Another part of me
And the world goes round
Shelter me
Won't you shelter me
When I'm sitting like I'm losing ground
Shelter me
Won't you shelter me
Oh, shelter me
When I lose control
Of my own home
Shelter me
Everytime time I tumble down
I want to pack it up and leave this town
But when I finally get the nerve
Get cleared out of the shoes
I'm thanking you
I'm thanking you
Baby shelter me
Please shelter me
When I'm sitting down, and losing ground
Shelter me
Won't you shelter me
When I lose control
Am I alone
Shelter me
Won't you shelter me
Oh, shelter me
Baby please
Oh, shelter me
Stay back and shelter me
Come on and shelter me
When I lose control
Am I alone
Shelter me

. . .


Well, I think it's time to get ready
To realize just what I have found
I've been only half of what I am
It's all clear to me now

My heart is on fire, my soul's like a wheel that's turnin'
My love is alive, My love is alive

There's somethin' inside that's makin' me crazy
I'll try to keep it together
'Cause what I say may not happen the same way
Not to be for ever and ever

My heart is on fire, my soul's like a wheel that's turnin'
My love is alive, My love is alive

My love is alive
My love is alive

Is there a movie inside my mind
Reflectin' the love that you shine on me
Hold on now, to that feelin'
Let it flow, let it run, yeah

My heart is on fire, my soul's like a wheel that's turnin'
My love is alive, My love is alive

My love is alive
My love is alive

Edge Of A Dream

[No lyrics]

. . .


Seems I got to have a change of scene
Cause every night I have the strangest dreams
Imprisoned by the way it used to be
Left here on my own or so it seems
I got to leave before I start to scream
But someone's locked the door and took the key

Feelin' alright
Not feelin' too good myself
Feelin' alright
Not feelin' too good myself

Boy you sure took me for one big ride
Even now I sit and wonder why
And when I think of you I start to cry
Got to stop belivin' in all your lies
Cause I got to much to do before I die

Before someone comes along and takes my place
With a different name and yes a different face

. . .


What would you do if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
I will try not to sing out of key
