Don't Look Back


Don't look back
A new day is breakin'
It's been too long since I felt this way
I don't mind where I get taken
The road is callin'
Today is the day

I can see
It took so long just to realize
I'm much too strong not to comprimise
Now I see what I am is holding me down

I'll turn it around
Yeah, yes I will

Chorus:
I finally see the dawn arrivin'
I see beyond the road I'm drivin'


It's a bright horizon and I'm awakin' now
Oh I see myself in a brand new way
The sun is shinin', the clouds are breakin'
'Canse I can't lose now, there's no game to play

I can tell there's no more time left to critize
I've seen what I could not recognize
Everthing in my life was leading me on
But I can be strong, oh yes I can

(Chorus)

Far away and left behind


The Journey

Instrumental


It's Easy

Hey, I've got no place to be
And no one I'd rather see
I won't mind if you can find
The time to stay with me

Oh I've got no time for wastin'
Gotta live a life when I can
I won't hide if you decide
To let me be your man

When I get close to you, not much to say
I get that same old feeling I had in my younger days

Chorus:
And I can show you the way
It's just a game we play
It's easy, takin' it day by day


Hey, you know I would concede
And I think we both agree
You and I can testify
That love is what we need

Just take a look around you
Livin' for the future is blind
I believe what we can achieve
Will soon be left behind

The things I try to say are so hard to find
If you doubt what your love is about it can ease your mind

(Chorus)

Hey, I've got no place to be
And no one I'd rather see
I won't mind if you find
That you're in love with me

Well we got no time to worry
Gotta live a life when I can
I won't hide if you decide
To let me be your man

(Chorus)


A Man I'll Never Be

If I said what's on my mind
You'd turn and walk away
Disappearing way back in your dreams
It's so hard to be unkind
So easy just to say
That everything is just the way it seems

Chorus:
You look up at me
And somewhere in your mind you see
A man I'll never be

If only I could find a way
I'd feel like I'm the man you believe I am
And it gets harder every day for me
To hide behind this dream you see
A man I'll never be


I can't get any stronger
I can't climb any higher
You'll never know just how hard I've tried
Cry a little longer
And hold a little tighter
Emotions can't be satisfied

(Chorus)


Feelin' Satisfied

Well come on, all you people, the time has come to get together
You gotta have a little rock 'n' roll music
To get you through the stormy weather
And do whatever you feel
when you let go, nothin's gonna help you more than rock 'n' roll

Chorus:
So come on, put you hands together
You know it's now or never, take a chance on rock 'n' roll

Release:
Ooo are you feelin' satisfied - come on let us give your mind a ride
Ooo are you ready tonight - come on let us give your mind a ride
You can do what you like - come on let us give your mind a ride


Oh that funky feelin' is what you need to get you through
You oughta know I'll tell you somethin'
Don't let your troubles get to you
'Cause win or lose it's alright
Well take control and nothin's gonna help you more than rock 'n' roll

So c'mon

(Chorus)
(Release)



Party

Well you know I don't get off on workin' day after day
I wanna have some fun while I'm here
I'll play the game when it's goin' my way
And there's nothin' like a party when it's kickin' into gear

I'm gettin' ready for a party tonight
Yes I'm gettin' ready to cruise
And if you got somethin' for me
I got somethin' for you

Chorus:
Baby, it's a party and nobody cares
What we're doin' there
Baby, it's a party as long as you're there
It's a party, party, party!


I can't believe it when some people say
That it's a sin that way we live to die
You know, there's never been a more natural thing
Yea there's a brand new story, but it's the same old lie

So come on
Get ready for the time of your life
'Cause I'm gettin' right in the groove
And if you got somethin' for me
I got somethin' for you

(Chorus)

Get down and party if you need a cue
You're sure to find one in the crowd
Just meet some friends and have a toke or two
In a place where they can never play the music too loud

Get ready for a party tonight
'Cause I'm gettin' right in the groove
And if you got somethin' for me
I got somethin' for you

(Chorus)

You know a man doesn't live on bread alone
He's got to have some lovin' each and every night
And a woman's got to have it if the truth be known
Let's get together honey, it's alright


Used to Bad News

I've been used
But I'm takin' it like a man
I'm confused
But I'm doin' the best that I can

Chorus:
I've been tossed around plenty before
I've had this heart of mine broken and more
I can't find a reason for sure
But I've gotten used to bad news
(can't find me a reason for sure)


Don't tell me why
Yes it's over I can see the end
But please don't lie
If you're leavin' me like a friend

I've been tossed around plenty of times
And I've read between all the lines
You're just another in the grand design
And I've gotten used to bad news


I know what you're sayin' is bad
It's not what I wanted but I'm ready for that
I'm ready for that, yea

I've been used
But I'm takin' it like a man
I'm confused
But I'm doin' the best that I can

(Chorus)


Don't Be Afraid

Now if you're thinkin' 'bout a love that left you
Thinkin' you should hide away
Girl I think it's wrong
You just try to be strong now babe
Listen to what I've got to say
I know the feelin' that you feel today

But don't be afraid of love

Tell you how I feel about you
Tell you what you want to hear
Tell you that it's true
But it's all up to you now babe
Don't let your love disappear
Can't you believe that I'll be stayin' here


But don't be afraid of love

Baby don't you know good love is hard to find
Don't you think I know what's goin' through your mind
One man left you cryin' so you shut the door
Just let me inside that's what my love is for

Tell you how I feel about you
Tell you what you want to hear
Tell you that it's true
But it's all up to you now babe
Don't let your love disappear
Can't believe that I'll be stayin' here


But don't be afraid of love
