I had enough of this strange affair
Tried so hard but we got nowhere.
You drag me down, what you doing it for?
I can't handle it anymore.
Why, oh why won't you hear me?
This information is yours for free.
I'm telling you like I know I should
I'm hurt, but you can't see the blood.

Well, I must have been mad
Went to the doctor, I felt so sad.
Yeah, I must be insane
You turned me over again and again.

Had enough of this strange affair
Plain to see that you just don't care.
You been fooling around for too long
That ain't the way to be carrying on.
Why, oh why don't it matter to you?
Don't you know what you're putting me through?
But it's over, tears I have cried.
This strange affair is a thorn in my side.

Had enough of this strange affair
I was a victim of a love so rare.
Told me lies and betrayed my trust
Feel like a sucker with a teenage crush.
Why, oh why keep leading me on?
Don't you know you been doing me wrong?
Your best friend confirmed my worst fears
Should have known it had to end in tears.

. . .


I've seen you in black and white
like a silent movie,
But your colours came through tonight
You really threw me.
Wings of desire will carry us to where we want to be.
Wings of desire will keep us flying for eternity.

I'm riding on a wave of love too blue to lose me.
I just can't get enough
You really knew me.
Wings of desire will carry us to where we want to be.
Wings of desire will keep us flying for eternity.

How many times have I told you
Whenever you ask me why?
How many times can I hold you?
You always know when I try.

We connect without a single word
Like a book you read me.
One look, the message heard
With you it's easy.
I'm riding on a wave of love
And I see you in black and white,
But your colours came through tonight.

. . .


I can't tell you, Mother, why I feel this way.
People passing through my life, I let them slip away.
Standing in the bright light, let the music play.
Better in the spotlight
you gotta turn my night to day.
Lead me to the water
you can't make me drink.
Dressed like a renegade, faster than you think.
Can't put down these feelings rising to the boil,
Colours of a rattlesnake, ready to uncoil.

Better by far this way.
Turn, I want you to turn,
Turn my night to day.

You yourself set me on this course when I was a child,
Walking down these men streets like a boy gone wild,
Programmed for survival.
All will be revealed.
The child is father to the man
I guess my fate is sealed.

Better by far this way.
Burn my blues,
Burn my blues away,
Like a renegade.

. . .


Weaving a web around my heart,
slowly taking my world apart.
I can't begin to think of anything else
left my reason way up on a shelf.
Stealing away without a sound,
my feet don't hardly touch the ground.
I look at the clock, the hands of fate,
The train I'm riding can't be late.
Riding on that dream train -
One look in your eyes, and I follow through.
Riding on that dream train -
Been a rider since I met you.

The brush of her skirt, the look in her eye
no use denying the curve of her thigh.
I got a feeling I'm out on limb
past committing original sin.
Cold steel on a railroad track
hard heart, I ain't coming back.
Put the border on red alert
heed the warning, you're gonna get hurt.

. . .


I'm taking off this hat
And walking to the sun.
I'm changing this and that and things
I'm done with everyone.
I slip into the sea
And turn my back on sand
And diamonds that may be, or not.
I'll play the final hand.
To check it all
And throw it all away,
But I would always wait for you.

I'll pass my time in sleep
With dreams that make me weep
And all I want's an explanation.
The little time I need
The time you won't concede
And we require some conversation.

I'm checking off this list
Of things that stay undone
And running hard when called upon
I'm done with everyone.
I step into the air
My face against the ground
Foot prints that may lead or not
Never let me down.
To check it all
And throw it all away
But I would always wait for you.

The final demand
The colour your smile
All hidden from view
That burn me
Freeze me
Deceive me
And you.

. . .


Seeing the love before my eyes
feelings in the air,
I been around, my feet on the ground
Still I find despair.

Wandering around without you,
Walking the lonely streets today.
She tries to carry on as well as she can,
She cries to be understood.
When nobody believes in love any more,
Doing the best she could.

Still we lie
Still we cry.

I wonder what you see today
So often being led astray,
Reading through the lines.

I'm not asking any more
you must have seen this before.
I'm asking all this time, will you care for me?

Say you will
Say you will
I'm asking to share this time with you.

And now I find you lost again,
Misunderstood by your friends,
And you turn around.

I'm asking, what do you say?
I'm only heartbeats away
I'm asking to share this time with you.

Say you will
Say you will
I'm asking to share this time with you.

. . .


Seen so many places and faces in my life,
I been on the road for so long
I will be tonight.
I really love this life of traveling
And seeing the sights.

So I'm rollin',
I'm rollin', rollin', rollin',
Yeah, I'm rollin', rollin', rollin',rollin',
Rollin' all over this world in search of love again.

You know that you love me,
But you don't even know my name.
But I tell you, little darlin', it's the same old game.
So I'm travelling one thousand miles
To see your face again.

Seen the good and the bad,
But it always seemed to work out right.
I'm not really sure of your love,
But it's worth a fight.
True love is an elusive game, try as we might.

So keep your eyes on the road
And your feet moving straight ahead,
And don't you ever look back
Keep on moving forward instead.
Try and try, the only way to get ahead.

. . .


You
Were looking for somebody new.
You
Were looking for someone to help yourself to,
In the sunset of your long, illustrious career.
You
The way you played so hard to get.
You
So funny to watch, but you did not forget
What you were looking for - a star,
And this was the best one so far.

Now you found your sugar daddy,
You found your sugar pop.
We applaud the way you pulled it off,
The way you came out on top.

You
Got more than you had bargained for.
Catch 22 that as you opened
You closed the door.
They all thought you were digging for gold and more.

You
Moved in your bags and said,"I'm here to stay".
Gossip everywhere about how hard you earned your pay.
But I just laughed at you and your style
I hope you're happy for a while.

You
Oh, I love you for what you are.
You
You give it everything
It's you who are the star
Of this song.
Don't get me wrong
Just stay the way you are.

You.

. . .


Well, you know the boss was a good man,
But kindness on its own don't pay.
"You can figure you're part of the cut-back"
Was all that he could say.

Hard times,
Well, they sure do hit,
Hard times.
Well, the dollar you got in your pocket
Ain't worth a dime when you got it -
Hard times.

It's a messy situation
Keeping the wolf from the door.
How can I stay solvent
When they're hounding me for more?

Hard times,
Well, they sure do hit,
Hard times.
Well, the dollar you got in your pocket
Ain't worth a dime when you got it -
Hard times.

Well, the Government's got advisors,
And they're sitting on Capitol Hill.
They're balancing the budget,
But they still can't pay the bill.

Hard times,
Well, they sure do hit,
Hard times.
Well, the dollar you got in your pocket
Ain't worth a dime when you got it -
Hard times.

Oh, hard times,
You're down on your luck.

. . .


Flying through the sky
His true love waits.
Lonely time's gone by.
There's a problem at the border
He learns they won't let him through.

She was standing in the rain.
She waits in vain for you.
She was standing in the rain.
She knows her love will pull her through.

Immigration law must be obeyed.
Close the case, return another day.
On the phone he tries to tell her
He must go without a single word.

She was standing in the rain.
She waits in vain for you.
She was standing in the rain.
She knows her love will pull her through.

Taking to the cloudy skies again,
The city lights shimmer on the plane.
In his eyes he sees the sadness,
For his love will always be the same.

She was standing in the rain.
She waits in vain for you.
She was standing in the rain.
She knows her love will pull her through.
