One Step Away
(Goudreau/Delp)

You got my motor runnin' honey for sure
What are we sittin' here wastin' our time for
There isn't any reason for us to wait
Come to papa honey don't hesitate

Chorus:
We're just one step away
One step away
We're just one step away
One step is all it takes


I'd like to know what's goin on in your head
We're good together we'd be better in bed
Who got you thinkin' that it's such a mistake
Drop the veil honey give me a break

Chorus

I don't know what I'm gonna do if you say we need more time
Cause I can't wait until you're mine

Chorus

You say you want it but you're really not sure
Come to papa honey I've got the cure

Chorus


Fool for Love
(Goudreau/Delp)

My heart tells me it's ending
In your silence your eyes speak for you
How did we get so good at pretending
That we can't say what we both know is true
You don't love me like you used to
I'll learn to live with the pain but

This heart will mend
This heart will mend
Time and again I've been a fool for love


Maybe it's best we get it all out in the open
This second guessin' getting too hard to do
There's nothing left we're just going through the motions
It's not fair to me, and it's not fair to you
I don't even know who you've been sleepin' with
I'll learn to fend for myself but

Chorus

If you can't be honest with me
I ought to pack up my heart and go

Sometimes I think it's just a question of ambition
Who wants it more and how much will they pay
I don't know but I've got my suspicions
You don't seem like you care much anyway
I don't know who you've been sleepin' with
I'll learn to fend for myself


Such a Fool
(Goudreau/Delp)

Some people say it's best to forget about it
Don't let the past slip into today
I know no matter how I fret about it
Your love has fallin' by the way
The thought of you keeps playin' in my head
Playin' here restless in my bed - oh!

Baby I was such a fool
For lovin' you the way that I do
Baby I was such a fool


In my heart I really can't decide
To give it up or let these feelings ride
Everyday I keep hopin' for relief
Every night I cry myself to sleep

(Chorus)

Some people say for every bit of heartache
That you give you get back in return
I know that someday you'll be sorry
Think of me baby, when you've learned-oh

(Chorus)


Rise Above it All
(Goudreau/Delp)

I know your mind is made up
You've convinced yourself
You think there's nothing else that you can say
So you lay it on the shelf

But when there's no one else to turn to
You will hear a voice and you will answer to your innocence
Cause you have no other choice
Cause when your heart says it's right
And you must listen

If we can rise above it all
If we can set aside our differences
And watch them fall

If we just head for the light
Maybe we can get it right


I know your heart is breakin'
There's so much to face
You wish that everything was different
But you know it's not the case
And although your faith is shaken
There's an inner voice that says to try and make the best of things
And to rise above the noise
And when your heart says you're right
Then you should listen

Chorus


Social Disease
(Goudreau/Delp)

Turn on the tube time to get your fix
Gonna keep you buzzin' with the appropriate mix
Sex, drugs and murder with a liberal dose
Of anything they're showin' not excluding the host
Oh-oh what's amazing to me
Is how you sit and stare at the shit that you see
Oh-oh they really dig up the dirt
I hope you get your money's worth

Seems to me it's like you've got a social disease
Just sit back turn on the trash TV
Time to see what you're missin'
It's all crime and sex
Everyone is worse than the rest
All designed to keep you cranin' your necks
Tryin' to see what you're missin

Here come the strippers, they got plenty of those
Then a bunch of guys wearin' high heels and hose
Incest, skinheads everything goes
You should have seen the host they busted his nose
Oh-oh what's amazing to me
Is how you sit and watch all the shit that you see
Oh-oh they really dig up the dirt
I hope you're getting your money's worth

(Chorus)


I'm on a Roll
(Goudreau/Delp)

I'm sorry for the other night
I never meant to cause you pain
I didn't want to start a fight
Sometime 'bout love in vain
I've had enough of the world as it is
There's too many people tryin' to break my heart
I ain't gonna take it make me a brand new start

I'm sorry if I made you cry
I didn't mean to step on your toes
Everybody got their pride
I wouldn't want to alter yours
I've had enough of the world outside
There's too many people tryin' to run my life
I'm not gonna take it
I'm kissin' them all goodbye

I'm on a roll
It's all about havin' a good thing
I'm in control
Ain't nobody pullin' my heart strings
I'm on a roll
It's all about havin' a good thing
I'm in control
If you can't take it let me make it plain
If you don't like the ride get off the train


I'm sorry for the other night
I never meant to cause you pain
I didn't want to start a fight
There's something a loving pain

I've had enough of the world outside
There's too many people trying to run my life
I ain't gonna take it
I'm kissing them all goodbye

First Verse

Chorus



Rock the Night
(Goudreau/Delp)

You work all day - or you go to school
There's nothin' you can say
You live by the rules
But all you really want is just a little time
To say what you feel
To do what you will
Isn't it such a crime

They rule the day
But we rock the night
We're jazzed all the way
So let's rock the night - tonight

Tonight


It's not up to me
It's not up to you
It's just the way it is
What you gonna do
To do what you're given
It's only a living
Just hang on 'til tonight

Chorus

They rule the day
But we rock the night
We're just on the way
So let's rock the night


Too much - debating
Too many - are waitin'
Too much - distractions
Too little action

It's not up to you
It's not up to me
It's just the way it is
And how it's gonna be
So do what you will
Say what you feel
Making up for lost time


Winners and Losers
(Maes/Delp)

Jackie is a world leader - makes money just by usin' her head
Susie is a crowd pleaser - gets here jumpin' in and out of bed
Danny is a big wheeler - he can toss the ball around
[and] Joey is a drug dealer - well he's got his ups and downs

Christian, heathen - what are these words
Saints and sinners - all in the world
Freedom, treason - questions abound
Trace of reason - where is it found

It's not what you think of it
It's what you can make of it

Trying to find a hole in the system
Jackie's looking for something she can overtake

Suzy's looking for a man with self control
And Danny's busy making promises
No one listens to a word that he says
And Joey wants to let the good times roll

Tryin' to find a hole in the system, Jackie's lookin' for someone she can overtake
Susie's lookin' for a man with self control
Danny's busy makin' promises- no one listens to a word that he says
[and] Joey wants to let the good times roll-oh
Winners, losers- What is the game
Victim, villian- one in the same
Pressure, more than they can allow
Voice of reason- where is it now

Chorus

Jackie's in it all for the money
Danny's looking for a company car
You can gain the world and lose your soul
And oh Suzann-nobody wants to give the kid a hand
Word's out that a bust is goin' down- Joey's headin' underground

They're not alone

Power of Love
(Maes/Delp/Stefanelli)

I've been offered- a job out west
And I think I'm gonna go- 'cause it's runnin I do best
Nothin' ventured- nothin' gained - a chance to ease my pain

How it happens- who can say
I don't wanna leave, but I know that I can't stay
Something's missing- but one thing's plain

Chorus:
The power of love
Can make you believe- or lead you astray
The power of love
Can give you the world- or take it away


I've been lookin- in the past
For one love- that I thought was mine at last
Then I stumbled losing all
Breakin my heart in the fall

How it happens- who can tell
Some people- you can never know too well
Now it's over- and one thing's plain
I'm foolin' myself again

Chorus

Change of seasons- a change of heart
A sentimental reason to look before we start
Given' up- and breakin' down- Spreadin' the blame around

Chorus


Show Me
(Maes)

Here we are both of us waiting- It's time to make a move
Get on the floor let's get shakin'- I'm dyin' to turn you loose
Show me girl you've got somethin' to keep me in the mood

And rock steady all the way- until tonight is yesterday

Put another coin in the jukebox play another tune
Show me girl that I've got something that makes you wanna move

We can shake the night away- until tonight is yesterday
Listen to me when I say

Show me baby
Show me that you can rock
Cut loose, darlin'
Can you show me the way to your heart


Keep the beat don't stop dancin'
Keep the music loud
There's a time and place for romancin'
It's not here in this crowd

Come with me, let's run away- until tonight is yesterday
Listen to me when I say

Chorus


Better and Better
(Maes/Delp)

Love should be more than just kissin'
Playin' the game - that's how it was to me
Now I know just what I was missin'
With eyes open wide I can finally see

Now I've got a real love
That I never dreamed of
Ever since the day I met her
She's givin' me a new life
Everything is so right
And it just keeps getting better


Time was, I was just a lost cause
Drifting at sea I was in desperate need
Then she came into my life and things changed
Now I can see what love was meant to be

Chorus

I love what she does
I need her so much
And it's more than I can say
And when we're apart
I know in my heart
That our love is growing stronger every day
