HOLD YOUR HEAD UP And if itís bad Donít let it get you down You can take it And if it hurts Donít let them see you cry You can make it Just hold your head up woman Hold your head up woman Hold your head up woman Hold your head high Hold your head up woman Hold your head up woman Hold your head up woman Hold your head high And if they stare, just let them Burn their eyes on you moving And if they shout, donít let it change A thing that youíre doing Hold your head up ... BLOOD RED ROSES Heavenís above What on earth has this come to What have I done What can I do now to show you Thereís still a chance If youíre ready to make up Itís not too late ĎCause Iím not ready to break up I try to call But you donít hear at all Iím sending roses Iím sending blood red roses This burning in my heart Is tearing me apart Iím sending roses Iím sending blood red roses Youíve got to understand Thatís my heart in your hand Donít walk away We can get this heart mended Or am I the fool And has this love just ended I tried to call But you donít hear at all I gotta keep on trying To stop this love from dying Youíve got to understand That my heart is in your hand Roses Iím sending blood red roses This burning in my heart Is tearing me apart Iím sending roses Iím sending blood red roses Roses Iím sending blood red roses This burning in my heart Tears me apart Roses - blood red roses Youíve got to understand Thatís my heart in your hand Roses Iím sending blood red roses ĎCause this burning in my heart Tears me apart VOICE ON MY TV Itís a familiar voice Sometimes I wonder If I have a choice You give it everything Youíre selling God But am I listening I hear youíve seen the light Your message comes to me By satellite You say I must believe I say itís just another way To deceive If my salvation has anything to do With your empty promises And what you think is true Well hereís my donation If itís all the same to you I am the voice on your TV But I am one and I am free Always to say what I believe I know youíre only A voice on my TV The numbers on the screen Will help me get to heaven So it would seem The money flows and flows And no-one cares enough To know where it goes Look at all the millions That youíve taken for a ride With the warmest words And the coldest heart inside And how much longer Can I listen to your lies What are all the Credit card believers gonna say When they hear about the scandals And the lovers that you pay And all about the meetings In your secret hideaway I am the voice on your TV But I am one and I am free Always to say what I believe Youíre just a voice on my TV Your powerís strong but I am free Always to say what I believe I am the voice on your TV But I am one and I am free Always to say what I believe Can you hear me I am the voice on your TV But I am one and I am free Always to say what I believe This is your conscience speaking RICH KID Sheís a rich kid She wears diamond rings Knows how to walk Knows everything About love, sheís not too sure What sheís looking for Fresh from the woods Out on the street Sheís looking good Looking so neat She donít know if she should ĎCause she donít know If sheís bad or good She donít care if it Hurts her father She donít care if it Breaks her mother She donít care anymore She just wants what Sheís never had before All she wants is love, sheís ready She wants love And sheís gonna get it All she needs is love Sheís gotta have it, someone to love All she wants is love, sheís ready Gotta have love, sheíll get it All she needs is love Sheís never had it, someone to love She was a school boyís dream High school queen She had it all when she was sixteen Stayed away from boys ĎCause she thought sheíd get hurt Why did she listen to Her motherís words Couldnít go out Had to stay home And how she hated Being on her own She needs love like everybody else Now sheís gonna Get some for herself All she wants is love, sheís ready She wants love And sheís gonna get it All she needs is love Sheís gotta have it, she needs love All she wants is love, sheís ready She wants love And sheís gonna get it All she needs is love Sheís gotta have it, someone ... CRY FREEDOM She told the story I listened with my eyes closed So sad but so true She whispered softly I asked her why she did so She knew that I knew She was a skater The ice was her second home The countryís finest Everyone could see She had a plan To break across the border Instead of waiting for The powers that be Cry freedom, sweet freedom Tell the whole world to get ready Cry freedom, sweet freedom Tell the whole world that weíre ready She said goodnight But just as I was leaving A black car came into view And waiting there They could hear me breathing They knew that I knew, cry freedom Insane questions They asked me what did I know So strange, they let me go But more they try The stronger our love grows I know that I know, cry freedom Cry freedom, sweet freedom ...
BAD BAD MAN In this supermarket city Among the native smiles You have to pay for attention And do the best you can Thereís a raging silence And itís charged with action Got no time for weakness ĎCause Iím a bad bad man Down the streets of darkness Where they know my name Lies a force of evil And a destructive plan Thereís no time for questions When you run into danger Donít get too close to me ĎCause Iím a bad bad man Iím working for the L.A. division To stop the inner city collision Iím bringing law and order To the twenty-first century I donít care for politics You can keep your point of view Youíd be better off without it I got my own bad plan A tough cop has a lonely existence A reputation of The highest resistance A mean runner bringing order To the twenty-first century I donít believe in passion Donít believe in feelings I take peace from the wicked Run and hide while you can I got no time for small talk Got no time for off-the-wall talk Donít care who I tread on ĎCause Iím a bad bad man Bad bad man, Iím a bad bad man ... MORE FOOL YOU (More Fool Me) I held the rope so tightly As she climbed Down from her room We said weíd make our getaway Underneath the moon I always will remember The night that we left home And the words of warning Ringing in my ears More fool you, more fool me ... New job, new friends and a family In a house on the sunny side We played on the wheel of fortune But it was me that took the ride It didnít work between us I had to give it all away And in the end I knew it had to be If Iíve told you once Then Iíve told you twice But Iíll tell you once again Now sheís taken away Most everything And Iíve lost my only friend WHEN THE WAR IS OVER When the war is over Got to get away Pack my bags to No place in no time no day You and I, we used Each otherís shoulder Still so young But somehow so much older How can I go home And not get blown away Ainít nobody gonna Steal this heart away When the war is over Got to start again Try to hold a trace of What it was back then You and I, we shared Each otherís stories Just a page thatís Lost in all its glory How can I go home And not get blown away You and I had our sights Set on something Hope this doesnít mean Our days are numbered Iíve got plans for more Than a wanted man All around is chaos and madness Canít help feeling Nothing more than sadness Only choice to face it The best I can Ainít nobody gonna Steal this heart away And not get blown away ... LIFELINE Well Iím not superstitious But thereís something Going on inside Could be friendly, could be vicious And there isnít any place to hide Itís my imagination A blessing or a curse No, I canít ignore it For better or for worse It wakes me when Iím sleeping A thief that takes my breath away And I find myself Reaching for a lifeline Throw me a lifeline and Bring me back in time I need a lifeline, throw me a lifeline Iím going down for the last time Sometimes I canít control it Sometimes it isnít there at all Sometimes I try to roll it And wind up staring at the wall My imagination I love the games it plays I get in so deep that I get lost For days and days It sometimes leaves me shakiní Standiní in the dark alone ROUGH JUSTICE The gates have opened Now Iím a free man My time is over I need a new plan But Iíve had no loving For a year and a day My ladyís waiting Got a taste for her wine Sheís wearing money But none of itís mine Sheís been surviving While Iíve been wasting away Back in my room It ainít quite the same You canít hide it Iím onto your game Rough justice, thereís no disguise And I can tell by The look in your eyes Rough justice, Iíve had my share Iíve done my time But Iím still running scared Rough justice Coming down on me Long arm of the law Never setting me free Rough justice, I bide my time Back in action, Iím riding the crest And putting all that Iíve learned to the test No complications Taking it day by day Freedom of movement Freedom of choice Free to be right back here With the boys Ready to listen But youíve got nothing to say Back in my room It ainít quite the same Just canít help it Iím part of your game Back in my room It ainít quite the same You canít hide it Just part of your game Rough justice ...
MIRACLE CHILD She got me to walk on water I did what she said She got me to steal the moonlight Put it over her head And after I moved the mountain Which stood in the way The answer was in the question She asked me if I wanted to stay All of my friends said it couldnít last Iíd be another there in her past But I disagree Ďcause I canít say say no, no, no, no Save me, sheís so hungry Make a man do anything I know, she gets hungry Gets away like an innocent child Save me, sheís so hungry Has the appetite to everything I know, sheís just hungry Sheís got the mind of a miracle child And when I changed the seasons And water to wine I took all the wordly problems And got the peace in our time And after I built the temple She wanted so bad I took her to altar on Sunday To look at everything that we had I could say no, but I always do Someone outside Would be cominí through And I canít stop her I canít say no, no, no, no Sheís so hungry She gets hungry ...
