01. Return To Fantasy

Searching every day
Looking every way
Trying to make a connection
To find a piece of the action
Like a hungry poet
Who doesn't know
He is close to perfection
Choice is the question

Moonlight night
After moonlight night
Side by side
They will see us ride
But if they cared to look
Then they would see
It's our return to fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy ...

Can you understand
That in every man
There's a need to unwind
That's never been defined
Somewhere deep within
There's another being
You are somehow abusing
By the person you're using

Moonlight night
After moonlight night
Side by side
They will see us ride
But if they cared to look
Then they would see
It's just our return to fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy ...

Travelling faster than lightening
Closer than ever before
We can go on for you
And take you nearer to
The legend of mystery
From the beginning of time
Dreaming... time ... dreaming
We can return to
The land of the good and the kind
Time... dreaming... time... dreaming
Why don't you come to our party
And open your minds

In another place
There's a newer face
Like an unfinished painting
Your creator is waiting
The brush and pen describe
What it is inside
That will set your mind thinking
While the others are sinking


02. Shady Lady

Out from St. Louis
I wasn't choosy
I just wanted to get
Back on the road
I hitched in cars
And worked in bars
Lookin' for a place
To lay down my load

I met a lady, a shady lady
And someone told her
I was all on my own
She poured a beer
And said when I'm finished here
Hang around 'cause
I'm taking you home

Don't worry
I'll treat you all right
Don't worry
You can stay all night
I thought it was any easy ride
But I didn't know where
I was until I got inside

She said, OK sonny
Give me your money
And don't start any foolin' around
I said what, I said what
Don't you think you're
Turning me upside down

She said, I don't care
I've been everywhere
And I've not been looking for you
But I'll take you in
And give you a spin
You'll know some tricks
By the time we get through

Shady lady
You want it all your own way
Shady lady
You won't let go of your prey
Shady lady
Eat me up and spit me out
But let's get started now
I know what you're talking about

Now in the morning
As the day was dawning
Shady asked me if
I'd stay there awhile
I said stay, baby no way
But I couldn't keep myself
From a smile

I said now no bye-bye's
Go in and dry your eyes
That ain't fittin'
For a lady like you
Why not be smart
And give your life another start
But take care now
Whatever you do

Shady lady
I'm on my way
Shady lady
We'll meet again one day
And don't worry 'cause when we do
I'm gonna' make sure
That there ain't
Very much left of you


03. Devil's Daughter

I don't believe in
Your kind of affection
Your taking me
In the wrong direction
Don't give me none of
That holy water
Comin'on like you're
The Devil's daughter

Just take me to your chapel
Show me to your leader
Take me to your chapel
I wanna' meet your leader
Come on

How do you find the time to exist
I've got to keep my
Strength of mind to resist
Don't give me none of
That holy water
Comin' on like you're
The Devil's daughter

Where do you come from
And where do you go
Can I touch without havin' to know
Don't give me none of
That holy water
Comin' on like you're
The Devil's daughter

Come on now
Come on now take me there


04. Beautiful Dream

Sail down the stream
Such a beautiful dream
Never stopping
Never touching anything
Till dawn awakes you
With a breath of the Spring

Far from the crowds
Way above the clouds
We can take you to
The edge of the day
And show you living in
A new kind of way

We'll take you floating to
A sea of morning dew
Where everyone's the same
And no-one knows your name
And there you'll see that you can
Live your life to the extreme
Such a beautiful dream


05. Prima Donna

I'll go down fightin'
But rather be delightin'
All the people that come to see
The Devil's from Chicago
Now where the hell do they go
When we get in our limousines

'Cause we just want to be
Where it's all going on
But tell me what do you do
When it's over
And everyone who
Loved you is gone
They're gone
I said they're gone

You're our kind of people
You're the church
And we're the steeple
But we're all inside the hall
If we've got what you need
Then we'll give you the speed
To get up and have a ball

'Cause we just want to be
Where it's all going on
But tell me what do you do
When it's over
And everyone who
Loved you is gone

You're just another
Prima Donna of rock'n roll
So please let me know
When you want me to go


06. Your Turn To Remember

I was always the one
Who did the thinkin'
It was me, I'm sorry
I who made the plans
There was never a thought
We might do somethin' between us
It's so clear I think
I'm beginning to understand
I was the one who had to
Lay it out and pay it out
I would work all night
Even though I wanted to
Play out and stay out

Now it's your turn to remember
And it's your turn
To try to understand

But you never would, would you?

When the time came
For stayin' together
You refused to even
Talk about for ever
It was easy telling me
You love me
And I was a little late in
Finding out the truth
The rule of love was there
You had to bend it
Now the damage is done
It's impossible to mend it
I can't mend it

Now it's your turn to remember
It's your turn to feel a little pain

I feel a little better
Talkin' about her
Yet her memory's not good for me
The skies are not so grey now
I've found a new tune to play now
It's a better song
It'll be followin' on

And when the time came
For stayin' together
You refused to even
Talk about for ever
It was easy telling me
You love me
And I was a little late in
Finding out the truth
The rule of love was there
But you had to bend it
Now the damage is done
It's impossible to mend it
You know I can't mend it

Come on babe

It's your turn to remember
Your turn to feel a little pain


07. Showdown

It's gonna' happen
Before too long
It's gettin' hard to tell
Who's right and who's wrong
I can see it comin'
So I gotta be strong

There's gonna' be a showdown
There's gonna' be
Changes in this town
We're gonna' see a showdown

A time's gonna' come
In the future when
A whole lotta' people
Gonna' think again
We're gonna' keep right on
Till you break and then

Do you want to be out of touch
Only you can decide
For something different
You're out of luck
'Cause on we will ride
On we're gonna' ride
Ride on, oh, ride on
Come on

The music explodes
Like a gun in your hand
We're gonna' give you more
Than your head can stand
Then we'll sit down
And talk man to man

There's gonna' be a showdown
We're gonna' see
Changes in this town
We're gonna' see a showdown
Showdown ...


08. Why Did You Go

I woke up today
With my head in daze
'Cause my love had gone
With nothing to do
Just to dream about you
And how we went wrong

But oh, why did you go
I loved you so, didn't you know

I walk into town
With my head hangin' down
Tryin' to hide my pain
The people I meet
As I float down the street
Tell me try again

When I remember how good it was
It makes me cry
'Cause my life's been
Turned upside down
All I want is someone
But how do you say
Please will you stay
Please will you stay

I'll settle down to a life
Of a clown to remain alive
I'll work till I bleed
And if I can succeed
Maybe I'll survive


09. A Year Or A Day

Seen from the height
Of a thousand miles
The earth looks the same as it did
How is it we can fly faster than day
But we can't find the things we need

Young man said the old man
Let the youth in your heart be at rest
We may all be dead
In a year or a day
When the devil is put to the test ...

The day of creation
Was our finest hour
It's something we ought to defend
But it's been so abused
Since the first day of light
That no glory can come in the end

Young man cried the old man
There is victory in staying alive
And if you care so little
For the world we're in
Why and what do you
Want to survive

Can't we try
To let the past go by
With it's lessons firmly
Settled in our minds
To our children one by one
And before the darkness comes
Let us leave a world full of light
Of a different kind

In truth they should meet
And with love
Their hearts should beat
And with patience
Solve the problems of our time
It wouldn't be so hard to do
It's only up to me and you
Let us not bequeath
A life that is a crime

Young man cried the old man
Let the youth in your heart be at rest
We may all be dead
In a year or a day
When the devil is put to the test

Young man ...
