NAIL ON THE HEAD

In your younger days
With your godless ways
And your gold crest limousine
You were making trends
With your so called friends
With a power so obscene
Then your hollow heart, it was torn apart
You were thrown a learning curve
If you turn your back on good advice
You get what you deserve

We hit the nail right on the head
We hit the nail right on the head
Over and over again ...

Heís another guy who just wants to try
His best to make things good
Heís an honest man with a helping hand
From a run down neighbourhood
Then you hear the thud
You see the blood
His good work come undone
Step aside for the one who said
Only the good die young

I hope you donít misunderstand me now
ĎCos I donít want to get you down
Just looking out at all he things I see
And they keep coming round and round

Now we have to go down a loverís road
On a path that ainít so smooth
Many ups and downs
Many tears and frowns
As the sweethearts look for truth ??
All the lies between what she believes
Gonna have to take the fall
No fear that she will ever look back
As true love conquers all


I CAN SEE YOU

Sheís the candle that lights my room
Better look out Ďcos sheís
Coming here soon
Ooh, youíre in my mind forever
I hear every word you say
Ooh, you come to me wherever
And turn my darkness into day

You taught me how to live
A life thatís full
I never realised what it is to be cool
Ooh, you pushed me off the high board
And I took it like a man
Ooh, and now I hit the high score
Hear me Momma if you can

I can hear you, I can touch you
I can see you in my head
I can touch you, I can hear you
I can see you in my head

Hold on tight to the driving wheel
You gave me strength and nerves of steel
Ooh, sometimes I do get lonely
I roll the dice and say a prayer
Ooh, I think about you only
I feel the power when youíre there

Sheís the candle that lights my room
Better look out Ďcos
Sheís coming here soon
Ooh, if we can stay together
Thereíd be nothing in our way
Ooh, if this could be forever
Here me Momma when I say


INTO THE WILD

The troopers are coming
They want me dead, not alive
Gonna run into danger
When they open fire

Donít cry little sister
I wonít be coming home
Donít cry little sister

In the cold hearted winter
Dogs are running at my back
The nightmare is coming in
And Iím on this frozen track

Donít cry little sister
I wonít be coming home
Donít cry little sister
Iíll fight this one alone

Red blood on the white snowÖ

If you think Iím guilty
And Iím just a gambling man
Well no one is above the law
Iím gonna have to make a stand

Across the land - theyíre getting closer
I keep my ear to the ground
They ride me down - got no mercy
But I never will be found
Oh little sister - donít you cry
You know I cannot stay
I gotta find a place, a place to hide
ĎCos the blood hounds know my way

Itís the same old lies
Donít believe what you hear about me
But Iím gonna fight Ďtill itís over
Than face the hanging tree

Into the wildÖ


MONEY TALK

Dressed right to please the crowd
All eyes can see by the way you walk
Watching you dance around
Heaven lies down, see the money talk

Kiss her in picture books
Watching her moves like a hungry hawk
Streets full of dirty looks
Heaven lies down for the money talk

Down for the money
Down, down for the money

Travel the dusty road
Trying your best not to fall apart
Let go your heavy load
See every manís got a hungry heart

Dressed right to meet her crowd
All eyes can see by the way she walk
Watching her dance around
Heaven lies down, see the money talk


IíM READY

The flame burns inside of me
Sending me to who knows where
Got my finger on the pulse of life
I take my chances I donít care

Walking with the sun shining
Down on my face
Seeing all the pieces just fall into place
When I feel I can understand
Why fate takes a hand
And I know that Iím ready

Running through the howling wind
Moving through the stinging rain
If you donít take what is given
You only have yourself to blame

I know so many people
Who never see the light of day
All kinds of trouble and worries
Seem to get in their way

Iím ready


TRAIL OF DIAMONDS

I had a dream at daybreak
The whole of time stood still
And in my crystal vision
I saw a shadow on a hill

And then she started walking
In to the bright blue sky
I tried to follow closely
And I knew the reason why

Then the dream it turned so slowly
Like a dream within a dream
She appeared to me so ghostly
And she kissed me with a smile

And then I saw her falling
In to the strangest town
Our distance never changing
As the walls are crashing down

Then the dream it moved so slowly
Like a dream within a dream
Then she turned to me so ghostly
And she kissed mw with a smile

Like a secret that the heart makes
Must be careful what I wish for
Could this dream last forever
Until the end of time?

With a vision of perfection
In this world of ecstasy
Need the strength so I can hold on
Donít want to die before I wake up

I had a dream at daybreak
You came and touched my soul
The deepest sense of wonder
Is knowing how to lose control

We left the ground together
So easy for us to fly
Leaving a trail of diamonds
That were seen for miles and miles

So the dream that moved so slowly
Was a dream within a dream
Then she turned to me so holy
And she kissed me with a smile


SOUTHERN STAR

Crowds were waiting on the quay
For their hero of the sea
From the greatest battle won
A toast to freedom for everyone

He talked of fear and the cannons roar
Sent a thousand souls to the ocean floor
Victory was a simple plan
Put in place by no common man

Set sail for the southern star
Set sail for the southern star
Haul away you restless souls
Set sail for the southern star

He says that he wonít sail no more
Heís hanging up his uniform
But he cannot control his soul
Heís got to chase that pot of gold

Ever fearless universe
Hold our nations together
Teach these words to young and old
Forever

Cut the anchor, today we sail
On trackless seas through storm and gale
To where the deepest water lies
To the warmer winds and balmy skies
Never to return


BELIEVE

With the light of the world upon us
Thereíll be nothing to come between us
Something up ahead worth fighting for

Youíre thinking that life is easy
Thereís a danger you cannot see
Do you know who is coming
Through your door?

To be one and free
Thatís all we need
Let the morning sunlight
Take away your fear

Better believe youíll come alive again
If you believe that all the world
Will change for me and you
Better believe youíll come alive again
ĎCos when you believe it
Then it will  happen

You will find that thereís so much giving
Look for help and see how weíre living
Itís all the things youíve
Never done before

If youíre one and free
Thatís all you need
Let the morning sunlight
Wash away for fear

Now I have your concentration
Now Iíve got your imagination
In a world I could not ask for more
When youíre dealing with frustration
All you need is determination
Thereís so much life worth fighting for


LOST

I could feel you moving in closer
But I didnít know you were in disguise
And I believed in the power of order
But I couldnít tell your truth from the lies

Feeling my way, lost in the haze
No turning back, lost in your gaze

I was free but now I run for cover
ĎCos I didnít know if Iíd survive
I could feel my heart beat faster
But I couldnít tell what she had in mind

Lost, so lost in your gaze

I canít breathe
She pulls me under pressure
Holds me down, oh wonít let go
I didnít know if she was fire and water
I should known she would take control


T-BIRD ANGEL

Sheís got me going crazy
Right over the speed of sound
And I swear if she knew what she can do
This thing would leave the ground

Sheís got a streamline body
Shines like pearls in a rich manís eyes
Sheís there on the list of desire
Wonít you let me take my prize

I gotta have this T Bird Angel
So we can fly away
I gotta have this T Bird Angel
And drive all night and day

Sheís a two door diva
Yeah, just what Iím looking for
And lost in this moment of madness
It only makes me want her more

Sheís my one temptation
There with her headlights  on
Sheís never too much to handle
On the road where she belongs

Weíre burning out on the highway
Me with  my foot to the floor
No wonder why everybody goes crazy
Gotta drive this T-Bird more


KISS OF FREEDOM

Looking out at the open space
Thereís a new world beginning
Got my head a-spinning
I had to laugh coz I thought it was
Too late to find a rhyme
Now Iím breathing, now Iím seeing
All the love that is flowing
Confidence a-growing
Riding high on the magic carpet
Way ahead of time

Weíll taste the Kiss of Freedom
It calls our name
And everyone will shine
Truth is yours and mine

Who cares about right or wrong
When itís down to the feeling
That sets me heart a-reeling
You know it takes no rocket science
To know whatís going on

Thereíll be hands a-touching hands
When we turn to each other
From the sky to the gutter
And the thrill of a lifetime
Coming down and living on

Looking out at the open space
Thereís a new world beginning
Gets your head a-spinning
Flying over the wide horizon
Far away from time


HARD WAY TO LEARN
On Japanese SHM-CD Only.

I should have walked away
When I lost faith
But I knew deep inside it was no disgrace
You see, sometimes in life 
You have to know your place
And it's a hard way to learn

I thought I was in control
And all I had was safe
But there was no way I could know
That the risk was too great
You see, sometimes life takes you
Where you don't wanna go
And it's a hard way to learn

It burns you up inside
There is no truth without lies
It takes your soul away
'Cos it's a hard way to learn

I watched the world go by
From outer space
But there's nowhere left to hide
In such a lonely place
You see, sometimes you just have to
Know your place
And it's a hard way to learn

I'd swim an ocean but I fear Iíd drown
Just to escape from this place I'm bound
Nobody told me just how hard
I would hit the ground
If I could leave, if I could only leave
I would leave right now

It's a hard way to learn
