01. Keep On Ridin'

Keep on ridin' ...

By tomorrow morning
At the early dawn
I gotta hit the road
So long lady
Till another day, right now
I gotta be movin' on
There's another town and
The singer needs a song
I know you're on your own
I'll be back before too long
I gotta do what I gotta do
And you know how
My heart loves to run, I gotta ride

Keep on ridin'
Keep on ridin' now

There's a city waiting
And a railroad station
Where my face is known
And an old hotel
That I know so well
It's a little bit like home
It's a situation
Not of my own choosing
And though a gamblin' man
Would say that I was losing
I started out to win
And I'll do it again
I'm never givin' in
'Cause if it comes down
To my heart, or to my pride
I'm gonna ride

Keep on ridin', keep on ridin'
Keep on ridin', yeah
Keep on ridin', keep on ridin'

And I know you say
I'm driftin', driftin' on a dream
You'd better watch your step boy
It may not be what it seems
I just can't shake
This feeling here inside
This heart of mine
Keeps tellin' me to ride, ride, ride


02. Flyin' High

I'm flyin' high
And I know the reason why
'Cause the wind of change
Has blown my way
And you love me
As much today as I love you
Honey, as I love you

I used to think
That love was all so strange
There was something
That I used to ease the pain
Though at times
It seems it hurts to touch
It's never gonna hurt
As much as no love at all
Honey, as no love at all

Flyin' high, it's a crazy feeling
Flyin' high, 'cause
I've learnt the meaning of love
Flyin' high it's a crazy feeling
Flyin' high 'cause I believe in love

I'm flyin' high
And I guess I know the reason why
'Cause the wind of change
Has blown my way
And you love me
As much today as I love you
Honey, as I love you

I'm flyin high
I'm flyin', flyin', flyin'
I'm flyin high
And I know the reason


03. Roller

Oh where is she woman
She's only here for the sun
It's now you'll discover
She's only here for the fun
And who will move over
Sweet talker choosin' her side
And it's then, it's all over
She' just along for the ride

She' s a roller
She's just a roller
Bet she'll roll her life away

One town is just like another
One man will just never do
Don't turn around
When she calls out your name
She's gonna break you in two

But she's a roller
She's just a roller
Rolling time come today

One town is just like another
One man will just never, never do
Don't turn around
When she calls out your name
She's gonna snap you in two


04. Free n' Easy

Ain't it strange
That when you're onely
And your friends they're not around
So you make your big decision
Get your feet back on the ground

When you're down
And no one wants you
And you wonder who you are
When your friends
They don't desert you
When you make it you're a star

But I'm gonna stay
Free and easy
I know just what I am
I'm gonna be free and easy

Well, I've been through
All the heartaches
And I've been through all the pain
But when you're up and riding high
Everybody stakes their claim

I'm gonna be free and easy
I know just what I am
I'm gonna be free and easy

I'm gonna be free and easy
I know just who I am
I'm gonna be free and easy


05. Illusion

In a forest known as heartbreak
In a clearing in the wood
'Cross a pathway called confusion
Toward the garden of delight

You'll reach the river of desire
And meekly try and cross it
While the valley of love
Keeps avoiding you
Because it's only an illusion
Only an illusion

Upon the hill of high ideals
You begin to wonder if it's real
You are reaching sleep's oasis
You begin to wonder how you feel

But it happens so quickly
It doesn't fit into your scenes
Tossin' and turnin'
The star of so many scenes
It's only an illusion
It's only an illusion


06. Free Me

Free me, free me
Why won't you free me
Free me from your spell
Come on and free me
Why won't you free me
Come on and free me
Free me from your spell

Why should I worry
That you might not love me
You're not the only love
That I've ever had
Your sweet memory
Will always comfort me
So why should I be feeling sad

As far as I can tell
You knew so well
I was always
At the end of the line
I've loved you as much
As any man can
But not enough
To make you mine

So long, easy rider
I know I'll miss you for awhile
But sooner or later
I know that I'll forget you
And I tell you babe

Free me
Come on and free me
Why won't you free me
Free me from your spell
Oh babe, free me
Why won't you free me
Come on and free me
Free me from your spell

We let a good love die
We let it pass us by
Though you tried to
Keep me hangin' on
But with all this doubt
It'll never work out
So tomorrow I'll be travellin' on
And saying:

So long, easy rider
I know I'll miss you for awhile
But sooner or later
I know that I'll forget you
And I beg it babe

Free me
Come on and free me
Why won't you free me
Free me from your spell
Come on and free me
I'm on my knees, babe
Free me
Why won't you free me
Free me from your spell

Oh babe, come on
Come on and free me
Why won't you free me
Free me from this spell


07. Cheat n' Lie

Well, it seems to me
That I've been cheated
And it would appear
That I've been lied to
All the promises
That you repeated
Were never destined
To come true

When I stop to think
How I once trusted you
It's harder still
To bear this doubt
I'm a innocent victim of
Heartbreaking circumstance
And I still can't get it figured out

'Cos all you did was cheat and lie
Now you're gone and
Made me cry
When my heart is heavy and
I just can't get it straight
Just the way you made me feel
A wound that only time can heal
Won't you take a little time
To show me my mistake

'Cos all you did was cheat and lie
Now you're gone and
Made me cry
When my heart is heavy and
I just can't get it straight
Just the way you made me feel
A wound that only time can heal
Won't you take a little time
You know you gotta
Show me my mistake


08. The Dance

See the picture in the hall
Framed in magic on the wall
Ain't it funny how it glows
What's on the inside
No one knows
What makes this picture
So inviting
To those who stand outside it

Maybe it's the dancers
Or maybe it's the dance
The dancer dances

Thousands fill the gallery
They pay their price to see a dream
They can make believe for free
Two hours' worth of fantasy
Maybe they pretend
The picture's them
Or maybe they just love
To sit and blend

Tonight the picture has no frame
Colours unleash and float away
To each and everyone of you
Tonight the spirit brings the news
You become a part of it all
Thousands turn to one in the hall

You become the dancer
And we become the dance
The dancer dances

The dancer dances
The dancer dances
And we become the dancer
And you become the dance


09. Choices

I was walking all alone
Through a sideshow
With passion and pain
On each side
Something inside me was calling
For a chance to stay alive

At the time I din't know
What was calling
As my head was buried in grief
Today I heard what was crying
My freedom calling me

And we all make our choices
Like a blind man feels his way
And the choice
I've made is simple
Passion over pain

When I got to
The end of the sideshow
And looked back
To where I had been
My eyes filled with
Teardrops of loneliness
For the ones
Who will never be fee

I thought of
The children in the sideshow
As they wandered
Around so confused
Some day
They'll make their decision
But which one will they choose

And we'll all make our choices
Like a blind man feels his way
And the choice
I've made is simple
Passion over pain

And we'll all make our choices
Like a blind man feels his way
And the choice
I've made is simple
Passion, passion over pain

And we'll all make our choices
Like a blind man feels his way
And the choice
I've made is a simple one
Passion over pain
