01. All Or Nothing

I´d bet my soul on a roll of a dice
I hit the ground runnin´
And I never think twice
I´d brave the heat of a
Wild cat fire to satisfy
My animal desire

Can´t stop me now
I´ve set my sights on you
Right to your heart
My aim is true, that´s why

All or nothing at all
Is how I feel about it
Won´t stand my back to the wall
I´ll find my way around it
All or nothing at all
There´s nothing I won´t do
And the one thing I want
All of is you

Don´t want to labor at love
Rather do without
Won´t carry the tourch
I want to burn down the house
I wanna give you all my lovin´
Baby listen to this
I would never settle for
Anything less

Can´t stop me now
Once you´ve got me goin´
Can´t slow me down
I´m driven by your motion


02. Halfway To Heaven

Another day has come
Can´t face it on my own
I almost let you walk away
I guess I should have known
I´ll give it to you straight
´Cause some things just can´t wait
I´ve got to make it up to you
And I´ll pray it´s not too late

´Cause when you look at me
With those sad blue eyes
It stops me cold and I realize
You´re all I need tonight

We´re halfway to heaven
Lyin´ beside you on a night
So still
We´re halfway to heaven
I ask you if you´ll stay and baby
Say you will

So what´s a man to do
To get it through to you
Another lost and lonely night
Would break this heart in two

So let´s take a chance
And it´ll be alright
Just put your trusr in me tonight
Girl we´re almost there

We´re halfway to heaven
There´s something magic
´Bout the way you kiss
We´re halfway to heaven
Runnin´ with you baby
On a night like this
We´re halfway to heaven
I never dreamed that
I could get this high
We´re halfway to heaven
Girl I couldn´t leave you
Even if I tried
You got me captured
In a crazy spin
You got me so I just
Can´t tell the shape I´m in


03. I'll Cry For You

I never dreamed that
I could fall
But something´s come
Over me
Now I´m sittin´ starin´
At the wall
Afraid for my sanity

The sound of your voice
The touch of your skin
It´s hauntin´ me
I´m still tryin´ to come
To my senses
But I can´t look back
So I´m takin´ my chances

I wanna give you my heart
Give you my soul
I wanna lay in your arms
Never let go
Don´t wanna live my
Life without you
But I know when you´re gone
Like a fire needs a spark
Like a fool in the dark
I´ll cry for you

Wonderin´ why I´m
Runnin´ scared
From what I belive in
I know that love
Is just another word
To say what I´m feelin´

For once in my life
The future is mine
It´s callin´ me
I´ve been searchin´ so long
For an answer
But it´s too late now
So I´m takin´ my chances


04. Little Bit Of Lovin'

Give a little bit of lovin´
And I´ll treat you right
Give a little bit of lovin´
And I´ll stay the night

Just like a gypsy
I come to town
I´ve been longin´ for that girl
I left behind
I might be a fool yeah
But come what may
I´ve been lovin´ every minute
Everyday

Give a little bit of lovin´
And I´ll treat you right
Give a little bit of lovin´
And I´ll stay the night

I don´t need nobody
I stand alone
But there´s a woman that I
Like to call my own
I ain´t got the money
To make her shine
But I´ve got plenty other ways
To make her mine

Give a little bit of lovin´
And I´ll treat you right
Give a little bit of lovin´
And I´ll stay the night

You got to give me some lovin´
I´m gonna make you feel so good

She´s got deadly eyes
A twisted mind
She´s one in a million
One of a kind
Cold chills runnin´
Down to the bone
She gives me lovin´
Like I´ve never known
We tumble and roll over
´Til the break of day
She´s so wild
Blows my world away
With her there´s nothin´
I wouldn´t do
Baby we´ve got something
To hold on to
Lay it down and it´s plain to see
The woman´s got the best of me


05. Talk To Me

It´s not like before baby
You can´t come running back no more

And talk to me
When it cuts like a knife
You just talk to me baby
When the feelin´ ain´t right
Who do you think you´re foolin´
Not me

September rain is fallin´
I see you on the street
Just passin´ by
And though your lips are smilin´
I can see the coldness in your eyes

So hell is what you´ve been through
I never thought I´d see you
´Round here no more
Now you need someone to talk to
Just like before

You only talk to me
When it cuts like a knife
You just talk to me baby
When you hurt deep inside
Who do you think you´re foolin´
Not me

You had to have it your way
From you that was a promise
And a threat
Now you look for consolation
Just remember what you give
Is what you get

The hardest part was changin´
I was holdin´ on to dreams
From yesterday
I used to be here waitin´
Here´s what I say

You only talk to me
When it cuts like a knife
You just talk to me baby
When the feelin´ ain´t right
Who do you think you´re foolin´
Not me


06. Seventh Sign

I´ve been sailin´ ´cross the ocean
With the devil by my side
I´ve been flyin ´cross the great
Blue sky
But there´s nowhere to hide
I´ve been standin´ by the crossroads
I´ve been lookin´ for a clue
I´ve been prayin´ for the
Human race
There´s not a lot I can do

I´ve been waitin´ for the warnin´
As we look to the sky
Now we all seem lost
If you ask me why

It´s the seventh sign
See the blood-red sky tonight
It´s the seventh sign
See the blood-red sky

There´s a voice out on the wasteland
It says we´re runnin´ out of time
I used to think the world
Could change
Lord I must have been blind
I´ve been cryin´out for mankind
I´ve been hangin´ on to faith
But the comin´ of a messenger
Says it´s much too late

We could all come together
And gather all around
What good is war when we
All go down


07. Prisoners In Paradise

I want to learn how to fly
I want to be respected
I want to get lucky
I want to get out of this dump
I just want to watch TV
I want to be loved
I want to be different
I want a brother and sister
I´d just rather be forgotten
I want to save the world
I want to be understood
I want to be rich
Man, I just want to be somebody

Julie´s got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life don´t come easy anymore
Still strugglin´on by herself
Got a picture of Jimmy
There on the shelf
And she looks at him and says
Why did we let it go

I know that sometimes baby
We didn´t see things eye-to-eye
But I got just one question
Did we have to say goodbye

Just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from heaven´s door
We had it all but still we
Wanted more
Now I realize that I can´t
Turn back the future´s here
To stay but hey
We´re just children of tomorrow
Hangin´ on to yesterday

Jimmy still recalls the night
When he took his guitar
And headed on out
To find the big time
That was his dream
He gave up his past
And made it alright
But there´s something missin´
In his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want
Ain´t what you need

He misses drivin´ down
To the lake at night
Holdin´ his baby
In his arms so tight
Ain´t it hard to find illusions
When you´re livin´ in a memory

Just like prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
No matter who you are
When you ask yourself
Was it right or wrong
For me to turn away but hey
We´re just children of tomorrow
Hangin´ on to yesterday


08. Bad Blood

Always lookin´ for a good time
She came on just like a hurricane
Man she was far too hot to handle
Like fightin´ fire with gasoline

All I needed was compassion
I´d been out there on my own too long
But she hungered for my lovin´
That first bite chilled me
To the bone

Bad blood
Runnin´ through my veins
Bad, bad blood
Is drivin´ me insane

Hey I´ve become a wild one
I´mnot quite the man I used to be
Just like livin´ on a knife edge
That woman put a spell on me

Bad blood
Runnin´ through my veins
Bad, bad blood
Is drivin´ me insane

Always lookin´ for a good time
I come on just like a hurricane
Now I´m far too hot to handle
Like fightin´ fire with gasoline


09. Homeland

Remember that summer
Down by the shoreline
I still can hear those old
Forgotten songs
And we made promises
To last forever
I just can´t believe those
Days are gone

There used to be a place
That we could call our own
We used to think tomorrow
Was a long, long time
But sadness filled my heart
When I knew the moment had come
When I had to leave those days
Behind

I felt so free
Where I wanted to be
The days went so fast
How I wish they could last

So far from my homeland
I´m lost in time
My soul´s still searchin´
For that peace of mind
Those sacred landscapes
Come miles around
And my heart´s still beatin´
For those country grounds

Remember when our hearts
Were filled with laughter
It echoes in my trail
Of fallen tears
But no matter where I am today
Or what the future might bring
I will remember those
Long gone years

I can´t let go
I wanna know
Does it have to end
For the best of friends

So far from my homeland
I´m lost in time
And my soul´s still searchin´
For that peace of mind
Those sacred landscapes
Come miles around
And my heart´s still beatin´
For those country grounds

Lord I know
That those days are gone
Long, long, gone
I felt so free
Where I wanted to be
The days went so fast
How I wish they could last


10. Got Your Mind In The Gutter

What´s a man to do
When he´s bein´ accused
I hear you talkin´
It´s real bad news
Nothin´ happened with
That girl last night
So baby won´t you
Tell me why

You got your mind in the gutter
You got your mind in the gutter
You´re jumpin´ to conclusions
And it´s plain to see
You got your mind in the gutter
Don´t blame me

So you say I´m foolin´ ´round
Playin´ the field
Baby let me tell you
It´s no big deal
No I ain´t gettin´
A little on the side
But I feel like a prisoner
With both hands tied

You say you found a number
On a matchbook in my coat
And lipstick smeared
On my shirt
I hate to disappoint you
And it scares me to death
That if your shovel ain´t full
You just keep diggin´ up
Some dirt

You´ve pushed me into a corner
You´ve got my back to thte wall
I stand accused of bein´
Some kind of liar
Hey I wouldn´t hose you down
If you were on fire

You´ve got your mind in the gutter
You´ve got your mind in the gutter
Baby I keep those women
Far away from my skin
But since your mind´s
In the gutter
Man I just can´t win

I took her aside
To give her my point of view
What you tryin´ to pull babe
It just ain´t true
There should be a warnin´
Up above your cage
Sayin´ don´t feed the lion
She´s in a state of rage

How can I prove
That I´ve done nothin´ wrong
You know in your heart
That you´re all that I want
Youre all fired up
Just a little bit too tight
Now babe whata can I tell you
You just ain´t right

Aint got a bad reputation
So why you tearin´ it down
Don´t know what happened
But your mind´s gone south
No I can´t believe what comes
Out of your mouth

You´ve got your mind in the gutter
You´ve got your mind in the gutter
I know what you´re sayin´
But it just ain´t true
You´ve got your mind in the gutter
Baby shame on you

So you say I´m foolin´ ´round
Playin´ the field
You know better
´Cause it´s no big deal
I ain´t gettin´ a little
On thte side
Baby what can I tell you
You just ain´t right


11. 'Til My Hearts Beats Down Your Door

Hey you should know by now
I´m gonna take you down
Can´t keep me out forever
´Cause now I´m back around
Put your best defense
I´ve made up my mind
I ain´t like the others
I´m gonna make you mine

I´m gonna keep on knockin´
Knockin´ like before
´Til my heart beats down your door
I´m gonna keep on comin´
Comin´ back for more
´Til my heart
´Til my heart beats down your door

Baby you know you love me
So why do you pretend
When I could make you happy
If you just let me in
Well I remember better days
With you by my side
I´ll keep you warm forever
And if it takes all night


12. Girl From Lebanon

It´s time to break out from the cage
It´s time to change your ways
It´s time to find those
Shattered dreams
That vanished in the haze
It´s time to lose those
Concrete shoes
They held you down too long ´cause
Trouble days have come and gone

And the night has just begun
Another dawn is yet to come
Carry on my little one
Girl from lebanon

It´s time to meet the changes
They come from all around
It´s time for you to realize
Freedom has been found
It´s time to meet the future
And forget about the past
It´s time to make a good thing last

And the night has just begun
Another dawn is yet to come
Carry on my little one
Girl from Lebanon

It´s time to cut the barbwire
And walk out on the street
It´s time that we stayed
Up all night
And lose all kinds of sleep
It´s time to wear those bright
Blue jeans
And let your hair hang down
The word of peace is goin´ ´round


13. Mr. Goverment Man

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man,
I'm just a poor boy doin' the best that I can
I've been stepped upon and pushed around, yes, I have
You can tie me up, but never tie me down

Well, I was drivin' around, tryin' to find a place
To get a beer and some cigarettes
Pullin' up behind me, not afraid to flirt
There's a girl in a red Corvette

I saw in her face that she wanted to race
So I let my car out of jail
Man, I blew it, before I knew it
The Feds were on my tail

I knew it were trouble, but didn't wanna stop
I couldn't forget that girl
My dashboard slick from alcohol
And my head still in a whirl

Just a country boy in the city lights
Tryin' to have some fun
But the Man behind me didn't wanna play
He pulled out a gun

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man...

Well, I had it comin', I hit the wall
And my car went up in flames
My head got hammered, thrown in the slammer
No one but me to blame

That's my story, ain't much glory
But I know I paid my dues
One thing I know in my heart and soul
I ain't never gonna lose

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man...

They say I might be goin' crazy
Hey, what else can I do?
Hey, my, my

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man...

Hey, hey, Mr. Government Man
Don't you push me around no more


14. A Long Time Comin'

We're gonna rock so hard, we're gonna let it go
If ya want it loud, hey let me know
It's been a while since we've been gone
We had it tough, now the hurt is gone
Well, when the day is done, when the day is through
Listen close this is what we'll do
Comin' down like a ton of lead,
Like a ton of lead that's what I said
It's been a long time comin'...
Hey, you can tear us up, tear us down
Before too long we'll be back around
Fallin' in, fallin' out
Well this time around there ain't no doubt
We'll walk on through the break of day
Once again we'll be on our way
Ain't no time to wonder why
Just try to keep the drive alive
It's been a long time comin'...
