Track Name: Saturday Night Will Be Rocking
Saturday Night Will Be Rocking

This love is meant to be forever
A world I found in your song
If your song played forever
I'd find the world to sing along
Take my light forever
I'll let it shine until I'm gone
And I won't speak of pain
I'll dream of times we shone.

(chorus) - Saturday night will be rocking
keep me warming up
with my lullabye angel in this rough and tumble world
we never get enough
of each other.

I only want to comfort you
sing away your pain
sometimes I need it too
Life can be a guessing game
Take my light forever
I'll let it shine until I'm gone
and I won't speak of pain
I'll dream my happiness away.

Chorus

Love me lost
love me lonely
your world won't be denied
I'll hold your dreams forever
in the sky where they can't hide.
We'll find happiness through thunder
no matter how we wander on
Take my light forever
and this darkness it rests upon.

Chorus.
Track Name: Sweetheart In The Wind
Sweetheart In The Wind

I can't waste a dream on another
I've been unfolding a new lover
(Sweetheart in the wind)
She's taken me where she wants to run
Now I'm just another lost in the sun
(Sweetheart in the wind)

(chorus)
Nothing is in stone
I don't want to be alone
I'm just happy she even gives a damn
If my gypsy is right
I can have her tonight
My gypsy smiled before she even took my hand.

Another new day and she's by my side
Another heartache should I let it ride?
(Sweetheart in the wind)
If I had me a crystal ball
I likely would never have bothered at all
(Sweetheart in the Wind)

(chorus)

I can't waste a dream on another
I've been unfolding a new lover
(Sweetheart in the wind)
Track Name: Nothing But Time
Nothing But Time

Those horseback riders approaching
Sillhouetted against the western sky
Have broken a law or two boys
But they've got nothing but time
Before their memory plunged into darkness
and their conscience drenched to the bone
they had suffered a lot through their innocence
before they let their bad side show.
.
(chorus)
It takes a man to show a man
how much love he's already lost
before they fight each other
over a girl who wants to call it off.

Those horseback riders approaching
Sillhouetted against the eastern sky
Stands a man with a tale or two, boys
But he's gained something in time
Before their memory plunged into darkness
and their conscience drenched to the bone
he had suffered a lot through his suffering
before he let the bad side show.
Track Name: Set Me Free
Set Me Free

I've broken you before, love
and I'm nice to love
when the skies are dark
oh yeah
but in my time
all in my time
I will run
I will be gone.

(chorus)
Set me free, oh yeah
Set me free
I know you've suffered on account of me
Set me free, oh yeah
Set me free
There's no need to suffer, baby,
on account of me.

Foolish pride
and foolish games
we aim to please
in good God's name
but in my time
oh, in my time
I will run
I will be gone.

(chorus)
Track Name: It's Hard To Be Lonely
It's Hard To Be Lonely

You're so close to me, right?
You're so far away
There's less to hide and more to say
I know that I've been lonely
waiting for a living sign
that the lover I found should bring to me
before the morning arrives

(chorus)
I found out you can't run and hide
giving me less than a second chance
you could be mine but you are too critical
It's hard to be lonely in the night
it's hard to be lonely in the night.

I guess my luck is no luck at all
a shot in the dark
a crack in my heart
you can be so bitter like a belladonna
there is no reason to be so heartless and cruel.

(chorus)
Track Name: Take Me
Take Me

I've been waiting for the sunshine
Waiting for this girl of mine to come out from the cold
I wake up each day to a new cup
a new world I can't shake up without her all alone.

(Chorus)
Take me
Take me from the city
Take me to the country
Cowboys always roam
Take me
To the world of lonely
where I can be her only
and somehow we'll be grown
somehow we'll be grown.

Today hasn't changed my memory
hasn't changed my future
hasn't changed my path.
Nothing to show up a pay stub
a broken down old back rub
and something in my dreams.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Beautiful Summer Morning
Beautiful Summer Morning

When you run out on the trail
see the action at your heels
It's a beautiful summer morning
music plays while the feeling stays
when the temperature strikes 100
farenheit out on the road
you've got to find somebody to kiss
to make you feel just right at home.

And the waves of the summertime
will come out from your heart
and you'll run like a shadow decaying
while the night falls gently apart
and you're afraid of being too simple
but you know there's nowhere else to go.

And the breeze plays with your hair
and its fingers fly through your silk
it's a beautiful summer morning
watch the way the day is built
mysterious gardens haunt you
lazy strangers faces shine
afternoon is coming to greet you
take a ride
let it slide.
Track Name: Come And Get You Down
Come and Get You Down

Hey Everybody! Come and get you down
Hey Everybody! Come and get you down!
Don't need a reason for a good time
Don't need repeating if not satisfied.

Hey Everybody! Come and Get you down
Hey Everybody - come and swing to sounds.
What does it take to make a heart break?
Sure take a lot more than a past mistake.

Night is winding down to a bright summer afternoon
Any chance that you want to take I will take it too.
I know that you would do anything to get over him
I know you feel it!

Hey Everybody! Come and get you down
Hey everybody! Come and get you down
A little bit of soul ain't gonna hurt you none
Don't feel guilt for having too much fun!

Hey Everybody! Come and get you down!
Track Name: Puddles In The Rain
Puddles In The Rain

They're walking through life's little puddles in the rain
trying to find meaning in any kind of pain - oooh.
Papa's sore and mama's working twice the time
they're asking me for money and I ain't got a dime - oooh.

Sometimes it makes me wonder
why I was born?
just to struggle for a line to walk
when all I've got for shoes is torn
oooh - walking through the puddles in the rain
Broken woman and man
staring at their lively child
wondering where their heartbeats went
in the corner where their dreams are piled
oooh - walking through the puddles in the rain.

Walking through life's little puddles in the rain
on my way to the big diesel train - oooh.
I'll be stepping out when the sun is on the rise
and I can see the happiness in everybody's eyes.

To look at the meaning
you've got to take yourself away
pretend you were never born
and that's how it's going to stay
and then you could see
it ain't you or me
we're just walking through the puddles in the rain.

Sweet crystal youth in the land of destruction
strung out on proof of the hand of corruption
waiting to die
burning the slums with their eyes
and walking through the puddles in the rain.

They're walking through life's little puddles in the rain
trying to find meaning in any kind of pain - oooh.
Track Name: I'm Not Left, I'm Not Right, I'm Not Wrong
I'm Not Left, I'm Not Right, I'm Not Wrong

I've been foolish
leaving you for all those years
all those years and all those tears
are coming back to me now.
A vision of solitude
I guess by looking you'd found some too.
That's my point of view
I had to get through to you.

(Chorus)
I'm not left, I'm not right, I'm not wrong x4

When you come back
give me a chance to dance with demons
making you a fool to try
that is what you'll say to me
but you'll hurt yourself if you don't
because you'll put your heart on a throne
making you a fool to me
out of everybody's reach.

(chours)
