TOO SCARED TO RUN Too scared I could not run I could not make a sound Lights were flashing My whole life passing My feet were stuck to the ground Too light to call it night Too dark to call it day Too scared to stay and fight Too scared to run away So scared I could not move I could not make a sound There were people running People shouting Flashes all around Too scared to run Too scared to run away Too scared I could not think My eyes could not scarcely see My heart was racing My legs were shaking They would not carry me Lights were flashing My whole life passing My heart, my heart My heart was racing My legs were shaking Could not see, I could not see CHASING SHADOWS Safe in the shadows Deep in the night I know youíre near But youíre nowhere in sight Safe from the darkness Down in the streets I hear your footsteps I hear your heartbeat Oh, I can hear your heartbeat On the street corner Away from the light I know youíre near But youíre nowhere in sight Over my shoulder I feel youíre near I feel you moving But you never appear Chasing shadows Chasing something I canít see Chasing shadows Will I ever be free Chasing shadows Into the darkness from the light Chasing shadows Iím just a victim of the night The night Cloaked in darkness You play at your game I hear you breathing Call out your name Closer, closer, I feel you so near Youíre just a shadow But you never appear Chasing shadows Chasing something I canít see Chasing shadows Will I ever be free Chasing shadows Into the darkness from the light Chasing shadows Another victim of the night The night Shadows in the night Safe from the darkness Deep in the night I know youíre here Youíre nowhere in sight Over my shoulder I know you are near I feel you moving Will you ever appear Iím chasing something I canít see Will I ever be free Shadows in the night ON THE REBOUND On the rebound, on the rebound Thatís how you fell for me Thatís how you changed my life You cut me like a knife On the rebound, on the rebound You came, you saw, you took It only took one look And lady, I was hooked On the rebound - itís a replay ... Your love was on the rebound On the rebound You came and took my soul You came and left a hole Where your love used to be On the rebound, on the rebound You like to drown in your tears And after all these years You give your pain to me On the rebound - you came to me, babe On the rebound - to set you free On the rebound - too bad for me Your love was on the rebound You came to me To set you free To pray for me Itís a replay You came to repay Itís a replay To set you free Just a replay Your love was Just a replay HOT NIGHT IN A COLD TOWN Sonnyís out strolling, ambling slowly Washed in amber street lights A Mexican wind blows in Takiní ahold of Angelina's hair And her halo Motors running, muffling the sound Of the street talk A big dealís goiní down In another hot night In a cold town Got yourself a hot night In a cold town Johnnyís got spare change In his pocket A ring and a watch To hock for a sweet ride A one way ticket Hidden in his shoe These last few hours He says heíll spend with you Heís leaviní home without a trace No forwarding address Heíll never have to face another Hot night In a cold town Got yourself a hot night In a cold town Well, the losers and the groovers And the corner boys Are hanginí around Runniní in and out of doorways Up and down the stairways Stray dogs headed for the pound In another Hot night in a cold town Got you, got yourself a Hot night in a cold, cold town Cold town Itís just another hot night In a cold town Such a cold town RUNNING ALL NIGHT (With The Lion) Iíve been waiting for my lady One hour - she finally came She came walking by my table And Iím thinking Whatís this foxís game To be honest, I was ready To play that white witchís game And I knew that she was ready To cut loose on the town and meet Somebody new for a change When youíre running All night with the lion Running all night with the lion ... I may not recall exactly How I got her to sit down She was sitting at my table And Iím making out like a clown Oh, sheíll make me very happy When she showed her fallen again And I knew that she was ready To cut loose on the town and meet Somebody new for a change Rockínírolliní ladies Good life to the games you canít win Weíll drink right at my table And weíll talk till itís time to go in This could be something heavy If only youíd show me a sign And something says youíre ready To cut loose on the town and meet Somebody new for a change
