IT'S UP TO YOU Twisted images and broken promises One long crisis day after day Hidden secrets and empty words Without any truth to light the way Is that what love is Is that what love is You won't stop trying but you can't stop crying You say you're looking but you still can't see You throw the cards and you read the stars But only love can make it what you want it to be Because You know what love is You know what love is You know what love is You know what love is It's up to you Only you can make it grow It's up to you Hold on tight, don't let it go, oh no! You think it's somewhere but you're going nowhere It's all an illusion, or that's what you say There's always a risk in an affair of the heart If depends on the price you're prepared to pay I know what love is I know what love is I know what love is I know what love is It's up to you Only you can make it grow It's up to you Hold on tight, don't let it go, oh no! It's up to you Only you can make it grow It's up to you Hold on tight, don't let it go, oh no! It's up to you Only you can make it grow It's up to you Hold on tight, don't let it go, oh no! MOVING IN I've been standing on the edge For a little too long Waiting for the door to be opened I've been hanging on the brink, biding my time Wondering if the spell would be broken I've seen a million words Of wisdom lost in the wind Heard the voices of The desperate and the dreamers And I knew that any moment They'd be calling my name To see if I was ready for the game So I'm moving, moving in the for kill Got a date with a man Who says he'll watch me fall Gonna take this chance I'm moving in for the kill This time I'm gonna have it all I'm moving in And I won't make no mistake For the kill I'm gonna see what I can take I'm moving in Now that my time's come around For the kill I'm going up and I'm never coming down Got the songs in my pocket The ideas in my head I'm looking for a little inspiration It isn't just the money that gets me out of bed I've got to have a little motivation I ain't got no grand illusion I'm better than the rest But there's a fire in my heart That makes me wanna be the best I've got my finger on the trigger I know where I wanna be And everything is ready as far as I can see So I'm moving, moving in the for kill Got a date with a man Who says he'll watch me fall Gonna take this chance I'm moving in for the kill This time I'm gonna have it all I'm moving in And I won't make no mistake For the kill I'm gonna see what I can take I'm moving in Now that my time's come around For the kill I'm going up and I'm never coming down Moving in And I won't make no mistake For the kill I'm gonna see what I can take I'm moving in Now that my time's come around For the kill I'm going up and I'm never coming down Moving in ... For the kill Moving in ... For the kill Moving in ... For the kill Moving in ... For the kill Moving in ... For the kill Moving in ... For the kill ONE TENDER MOMENT Well you can do what you wanna do And you can say what you wanna say And you can be what you wanna be On any given day You can see what you choose to see And you can be who you wanna be But I'm gonna be the first in line When you give your heart away Suddenly, that's how you came to me Out of the blue into my hurting heart For one tender moment You came into my life And showed me how good it feels To be alive when love is in my heart For one tender moment I knew that you loved me But now I'm alone with just The emptiness I feel when we're apart For one tender moment I never spent any time alone Though I had felt like I was on my own I never wanted to let go I had too much to lose I never felt like my life was mine I was so tired out of killing time I felt so lost, so totally lost So completely confused Suddenly, that's how you came to me Out of the blue into my hurting heart For one tender moment You came into my life And showed me how good it feels To be alive when love is in my heart For one tender moment I knew that you loved me But now I'm alone with just The emptiness I feel when we're apart For one tender moment You came into my life And showed me how good it feels To be alive when love is in my heart For one tender moment I knew that you loved me But now I'm alone ... GUARD YOUR HEART I can look in your eyes And tell that there's pain deep inside It's something that you can't disguise from me You see, I've had my share Of pain and heartache to bear We always believed we're the only one But there's a voice deep inside That says don't give up, keep on tryin' You gotta guard your heart It is a treasure so treat it that way You've gotta guard your heart No need to hurry before you give it away I know the way that you feel You're thinking that this love is real And without her life just can't go on I know this feeling is strong But you'll find that life still goes on True love is a treasure worth waiting for So don't give up faith You must remember to always pray And it will guard your heart It is a treasure so treat it that way You've gotta guard your heart No need to hurry before you give it away So don't give up faith You must remember to always pray And it will guard your heart It is a treasure so treat it that way You've gotta guard your heart No need to hurry before you You've gotta guard your heart It is a treasure so treat it that way You've gotta guard your heart No need to hurry before you give it away SHAKEY GROUND Another victim lying in the street Just another statistic on the news Tonight another mother cries herself to sleep How many more must she lose? You know he was her first born baby boy Yes, he was her pride and joy But now all that's left is a memory Of the pain and sorrow Where's the value of the human life? Lord, no one knows now what is wrong or right While we're standing Standing on shakey ground That's why we're standing Standing on shakey ground Politicians say they've got a plan They know exactly what we need But no amount of money can buy love We need a reason to believe How many children must die in the streets? Lord, before they start to understand? What we need is some help from above We must seek a higher plan Heavenly father, I know you hear our cry And I know you are listening And it comes as no surprise That we're standing Standing on shakey ground Oh Lord, we're standing Standing on shakey ground Oh. somebody help me Where's the value of the human life? Seems no one knows now what is wrong and right While we're standing Standing on shakey ground Yeah ,we are, now we're standing Standing on shakey ground Now we're standing Standing on shakey ground *Cause now we're standing on shakey ground Lord we're standing Standing on shakey ground THINK TWICE He could have had most anything He could have had it all Put his hands on life and love Let'em go and watched'em fall But the spotlight never shone upon his heart You got to know him on the stage Where you watched him play his part Soon, like him the world was at your feet Seemed it never had to end You claim you gave him everything But you forgot to be his friend When you get so trapped inside it all I wonder if you can find a way To separate the music and the man When the trouble comes And you have to know it will He'll be looking for Much more than consolation When the tide turns And there's nowhere he can run Something or someone Is gonna have to take the blame You'd better think twice There's gonna have to be a sacrifice What will be the first to go Not the music, that I know You'd better think twice Or you'll have to pay a high price Time to open up your eyes Are you in love or are you hypnotized Is it the music or the man? When the trouble comes And you have to know it will He'll be looking for Much more than consolation When the tide turns And there's nowhere he can run Something or someone Is gonna have to take the blame You'd better think twice There's gonna have to be a sacrifice What will be the first to go Not the music, that I know You'd better think twice Or you'll have to pay a high price Time to open up your eyes Are you in love or are you hypnotized You'd better think twice There's gonna have to be a sacrifice What will be the first to go Not the music, that I know You'd better think twice Or you'll have to pay a high price Time to open up your eyes Are you in love or are you hypnotized You'd better think twice There's gonna have to be a sacrifice What will be the first to go Not the music, that I know

You begin to have your doubts But when they do you wrong That's when you become strong Everybody's got a part to play, I know Everybody's got something to say for sure But when it comes to what part you play You choose do you win or lose? You say you've given up You won't drink from that cup Statistics say you're right You've chosen not to fight You're on a ship of fools You're sailing out tonight But deep in your heart You know that I'm right Everybody's got a part to play, I know Everybody's got something to say for sure But when it comes to what part you play You choose do you win or lose? Sometimes I don't think we appreciate What we've got until it is much too late It's too late Everybody's got a part to play, I know Everybody's got something to say for sure But when it comes to what part you play You choose do you win or lose? Do you win or lose? THE COST OF LOVING In the heat of the night when my heart is burnin' And I'm thinking out loud without too much to say Gotta soul full of need, passion and yearnin' But there's always a high price to pay Why, when I need a little understanding Do I feel like I'm asking too much To make you reach for your heart I gotta reach in my pocket When all that I need is your touch It's the high - the high cost of lovin' you It's the high - the high cost of lovin' you High cost of lovin' you I want a permanent place in somebody's life Not a high priced affair, that's all yours I'm a man above all, I need someone to turn to Got feelings that won't be ignored Now there's no turning back, no running away Don't they say that once bitten, twice shy And there's no point in talking You've got nothing to say You've got nothing that I want to buy It's the high - the high cost of lovin' you The price is too high The high cost of lovin' you The price is too high The high cost of lovin' you The price is too high The high cost of lovin' you It's the high - the high cost of lovin' you The price is too high The high cost of lovin' you The price is too high The high cost of lovin' you The high cost of lovin' you The high cost of lovin' you THE RETURN How low will you go to be part of the show Are you willing to leave God behind Do you think you can ride on your ego and pride With your faith out of sight, out of mind I want you to know, I don't want you to wait I want you to know before it's too late Do you know who to trust as you life turns to dust Will it be the beginning or the end With eternity to loose, be careful as you choose Whether God is your enemy or your friend I want you to know, I don't want you to wait I want you to know before it's too late He's going to return, the tide is gonna turn You can choose to live and learn Or you can crash and burn He's going to return Will you be ready when he comes To feel the thunder of his drums Will you be ready for the call You can stand or you can fall He's gonna take it all Sure, you can hold all your silver and gold If you think it will do you any good But on your judgement day There is no price you can pay For it was paid, not in gold but in blood I want you to know, I don't want you to wait I want you to know before it's too late He's going to return, the tide is gonna turn You can choose to live and learn Or you can crash and burn He's going to return Will you be ready when he comes To feel the thunder of his drums Will you be ready for the call You can stand or you can fall He's gonna take it all He's going to return, the tide is gonna turn You can choose to live and learn Or you can crash and burn He's going to return Will you be ready when he comes To feel the thunder of his drums Will you be ready for the call You can stand or you can fall He's gonna take it all THE JOY OF KNOWING JESUS There is nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus Believe in him, there's nothing he can't do No, there's nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus So walk with him and let him walk with you Once upon a time I thought I had it all Everything a man's heart could desire I didn't see the truth 'til I began to fall And I prayed, Lord save me from the fire Now I know that there's no other way Gotta turn from sin and give my heart to him Oh, joy I'm saved by his sacrifice And by the grace of God I can only win There is nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus Believe in him, there's nothing he can't do No, there's nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus So walk with him and let him walk with you Don't be concerned, you'll have to change your life Believe in him, he'll do it for you And don't wait for troubled times to call on him Through thick and thin he won't ignore you I only wonder why I waited so long Precious time has come and gone But I'm here now 'cause he was watching me He's holding me and I can't go wrong There is nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus Believe in him, there's nothing he can't do No, there's nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus So walk with him and let him walk with you There is nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus Believe in him, there's nothing he can't do No, there's nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus So walk with him and let him walk with you There is nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus Believe in him, there's nothing he can't do No, there's nothing like the joy of knowing Jesus So walk with him and let him walk with you So walk with him and let him walk with you So walk with him and let him walk with you So walk with him and let him walk with you And let him walk with you And let him walk with you And let him walk with you
