All Those Years

Let's get back to where we belong
Where did we go wrong
Time's got a habit of slippin' away
Can we get back to those good old days

There's no doubt about it
We had it all back then

On a day we said goodbye
Seemed no good to try
Now it seems not a day goes by
I don't wonder why

It's no good without it
Love from the heart won't break

Chorus:
Do you remember
All those years (all those years)
All those years
Shadows of yesterday

Looking back to the memories
Clouds the things we see
I know that our love was strong
It lasted for so long

When you think about it
Time has a role to play

(Chorus)

All those years (all those years)
All those years
Shadows of yesterday

Let's get back to where we belong
Where did we go wrong
Time's got a habit of slippin' away
Can we get back to those good old days

There's no doubt about it
We had it all back then

(Chorus)

Do you remember
All those years
All those years
Shadows of yesterday


So You Ran

So you ran
Took the heart of a lonely man

Woke up this morning and you were gone
Found your note by the telephone
You said "Goodbye I won't be back this way"

I guess in time i'll figure it out
The flame burnin' flickered out
You fade away as you turn down the highway

Chorus:
So you ran (you keep on runnin')
Took the heart of a lonely man
I hoped you would stay
But now you've run away

Seemed like I never got a hold on you
The harder I tried the more desperate I grew
I should've known that I couldn't change a heart

You once said that you need to feel free
Oh baby, could've been with me
You fade away like the sun turning to darkness

(Chorus)

Given time we might find a way
Love is more than just day to day

Why

So you ran
So you ran
So you ran

Baby I wonder who you're with tonight
Can he save ya from the sacrifice

Will he love you
Hold you for another day
Or is it just a stop on a lonely highway

Baby

(Chorus)


Dreamin'

I can see the future
Through the night
I'm dreamin'
I'm dreamin'

I'm moving towards a distant light
The silence is cold as ice
And I hear it say
What's eluding me

I woke up in another time
In my mind

Chorus:
You're a star in the pack
This is a vision, a dream, or effect
Star in the pack
Gotta find my way back

I have seen what I can need
That's my destiny
In my dream I see what the future brings

I'm runnin' down a long dark hall
Towards the crystal ball
And it's haunting me
What my future brings

I woke up in another time In my mind

(Chorus)

I saw the future
Through the night
I'm dreamin'
I'm dreamin'

I'm runnin' down a long dark hall
Towards the crystal ball
And it's haunting me
What my future brings

I woke up in another time In my mind

(Chorus)


Dark And Stormy

You said love comes from the heart
When we said goodbye in the dark
And the words comes back to mind
Time after time

Yeah we're changing
Summer turns into fall
Cold winds blowin'
Without you here, I'm lost

See your eyes they light
Like the sun breaking through the clouds

Chorus:
On this dark and stormy night
Thunder lightning rain
Dark and stormy night
And the sky cries down its tears for you

Word is you got a new start
Life's good for you in New York
If my letter gets to you
I'll hope you'll write

Winter's comin'
Signs are all around
Memories haunt me
Think about you all the time

If I could find the words
To have you by my side

(Chorus)

Pages turn
Night slips into dawn
Sun's arisin'
My letter regret rolls on

To see your eyes they light
Like the sun breaking through it all

(Chorus)

And the sky cries down for you


Stand Up

So many times, life passed me by
Turn around and I'm down for the count
Is it fate, or maybe destiny
I'll break out, gonna win the bout

Yeah, Yeah

Feel like the fighter in a championship bout
Going 15 rounds
Hear the bell, gonna raise some hell
I'll wear you down

And when it's right, put you down tonight
Gonna take what's mine
It's all on the line

I'm gonna fight (fight)
Fight
Fight
Stand up, stand up and fight

Fight
Fight
Fight
Stand up, stand up and fight

The empty street offers no relief
From the pain that drives me

Set my sights, gonna change my life, with a wave of my hand
And if you care that you're going nowhere
You can get what you want
Don't go down for the count

You've gotta fight (fight)
Fight
Fight
Stand up, stand up and fight

Fight
Fight
Fight
Stand up, stand up and fight

So many times, life passed me by
Turn around and I'm down for the count
Is it fate, or maybe destiny
I'll break out, gonna win the bout

Stand up, stand up and fight
Don't take the fall
Stand up, fight for your life
Go for it all

Yeah!

Feel like the fighter in a championship bout
Going 15 rounds
Set my sights, gonna change my life
With a wave of my hand

And if you care that you're going nowhere
You can get what you want
Don't go down for the count

Stand up, stand up and fight
Don't take the fall
Stand up, fight for your life
Go for it all

Stand up, stand up and fight
Don't take the fall
Stand up, fight for your life
Go for it all


Fast Talk

You put yourself in some crude positions
On your way to the top
You've got the makings of a smooth politician
But you fessed up

You say you love but do you really mean it
Don't play with my love

Don't break my heart
Don't tear it up
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart

With your fast talk (fast talk)
Truth is a mystery to you
Fast talk (fast talk)
Look what it's done to me

Fast talk (fast talk)
Don't go playing with my love
You put my mind in a deep depression
With your fast love

I think it's time for a full confession
Stop turning me up

Don't say you love me unless you really mean it
Don't play with my love

Don't break my heart
Don't tear it up
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart

With your fast talk (fast talk)
Truth is a mystery to you
Fast talk (fast talk)
Look what it's done to me
Fast talk (fast talk)
Don't go playing with my love

Look what you did to me
It's not how it's supposed to be
Your game will be history
With your fast talk

Let's make the best of a bad situation
It's time to come clean
Fast talking an empty persuasion
It's not what we need

Don't say you love me unless you really mean it
Don't play with my love

Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't tear it up
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart

Fast talk (fast talk)
Truth is a mystery to you (fast talk)
Look what it's done to me (fast talk)
Don't go playing with my love (fast talk) Yeah!


Too Much In Love

Two months on your own is a long time
But I know when you're near me that time flies by
You say you needed some more time
I wonder why

I don't know what I've been thinking
It wasn't only me
We both know it's not the way
We wanted it to be

I admit I was wrong to hold you
You have dreams of your own and they have to fly
I think we can see that together
I wanna try

Don't you know that I've been dreaming
Of what I wanna do
Still it seems that all my dreams are
Coming back to you

Oh, back to you

Chorus:
'Cause our love is breakin'
In little pieces
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Too much in love

'Cause our love is breakin'
In little pieces
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Too much in love

Too much in love

Don't you know that I've been dreaming
Of what I wanna do
Still it seems that all my dreams are
Coming back to you

Oh yeah

(Chorus)

Don't you know that I've been dreaming
Of what I wanna do (too much in love)
Still it seems that all my dreams are
Coming back to you (too much in love)

(repeat)


Joanne

Sometimes when I'm feelin' all alone
I think back to days of you
Those thoughts and feelings so obscure
I retract those words so cruel

But the memories won't fade away
In my heart they will always stay with me

Joanne
Please let me make it up to you
Say you can forget the hurt and take me back again
Joanne

Everyone knows the mistakes I made
It was rude to be so hard
And I never learned how the game was played
Though I was dealt the winning card

Now your memory won't fade away
In my heart you'll always stay with me

Joanne
Please let me make it up to you
Say you can forget the past
And love me once again

Strike up the band
In playing only
Please try and understand

Change what I am
Please don't disown me
After all, I'm just a man
Joanne

Sometimes when I'm feelin' all alone
I think back to days of you
Those thoughts and feelings so obscure
Take me back it's deja-vu

Now your memory won't fade away
In my heart you'll always stay with me

Joanne
Please let me make it up to you
Say you can forget the past and love me once again

(repeat)


I Call It Love

Some say she's loose
I think she's tight
We rock 'n' roll
We lose control

We blast into the night

I call it love, love
I call it love

Some say she comes on fast
I say she comes on time
She gives it up
We never stop

Going out of my mind

I call it love, love

Chorus:
Gotta hold on till tonight
Oh tonight (tonight)
If you're lookin' for a wicked affair
She can take you there

Some say she's cool
But I say she's hot
Just touch 'n go
That's all she knows

I know I like it a lot

I call it love, love

(Chorus)

Some say she's cool
But I say she's hot
We rock 'n' roll
We lose control

I know I like it a lot

I call it love, love

(Chorus)

Oh tonight
Hot sweet love

I call it love
Yeah

Hot sweet love
