Say It Ain't True
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes)

Talk is cheap you deceive
Said you love me but I hear it ain't so
Friends are saying you've been playing
You're with somebody with the lights down low

A man ain't supposed to cry
These feelings I can't deny
I see your disguise oh I'm telling you, tell me

It ain't true it ain't true
What they say about me and you no
It ain't true it ain't true
Tell me baby am I losing you


Lights are on somebody's home
Late at night and you don't answer the phone
If its true there's someone new
You gotta tell me what you're gonna do, so tell me

It ain't true it ain't true
What they say about me and you say it
It ain't true it ain't true
Tell me baby am I losing you
It ain't true it ain't true


A man ain't supposed to cry
These feelings I can't deny
I see your disguise oh I'm telling you, tell me

It ain't true it ain't true
What they say about me and you say it
It ain't true it ain't true
Tell me baby am I losing you
It ain't true it ain't true


So tell me baby
I need to know
I need to know, baby

Tell me baby is there someone new
Seems to me like I'm losing you
Am I losing you


Pray For The Rain
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes/Bob Gilles)

Something cries in the heart of the city
Someone calls out in the night
Streets look bright but they have no pity
Morning light won't make things pretty
What happened to the world they used to know

They used to eat at a table now life ain't stable
Dreams that don't come easy
When you're living on the street
They'll keep hanging on

And when it's all been said and nothing's done
You can say what you want to say
I'm gonna pray

Pray for the rain to fall
Let it change the ways
Let it wash them all away
Pray for the rain to fall
Let the rivers run
Let it all come undone


Living like a ghost in the eyes of the city
Out of step and out of sleep
The city moves to a different beat
Nights are long when you got no money
Lord you're going down

And when it's all been said and nothing's done
You do what you do
I'm gonna pray

Pray for the rain to fall
Let it change the ways
Let it wash them all away
Pray for the rain to fall
Let the rivers run
Let it all come undone


They used to eat at a table now life ain't stable
Dreams that don't come easy
When you're living on the street
They'll keep hanging on

Pray for the rain to fall
Let it change the ways
Let it wash them all away
Pray for the rain to fall
Let the rivers run


Pray for the rain
Pray for the rain


Love Is No Stranger
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes)

It's another day here comes another heartache
I ask myself why it gets this way
Oh lord should it bet his way
Another year's gone by another love comes up dry
How many tears have I left to cry

I found some love some love in my time
And I learned the tears won't be far behind

Love is no stranger to me
It searches for a lonely heart
When it's gone it takes your dreams
Love is no stranger to me
And it keeps on starting up again
And i keep right on falling


Ooh you turned me on
We drank the wine and sang the song
Came the rain and then the love was gone
Oh lord our love was gone
It's another day comin' on another heartache
And i don't know why it gets this way
Lord would it be this way

I broke some hearts in my time
I left a trail of tears far behind

Love is no stranger to me
It searches for a lonely heart
When it's gone it takes your dreams
Love is no stranger to me
And it keeps on starting up again
And i keep right on falling


And it keeps on starting up again

Love is no stranger to me

Love is no stranger to me
It searches for a lonely heart
When it's gone it takes your dreams
Love is no stranger to me
And it keeps on starting up again
And i keep right on falling



Walk That Walk
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes/Bob Gilles)

Hoochie koo whatcha you gonna do
With your treasure chest and your eyes of blue
You're a satin doll who you gonna call
With your boom boom I'm ready to fall

Hit me like lightning the bells start a chiming

Walk that walk for me
A bump bump bumpity grind
Walk for me boom boom yeah


Hoochie koo what can i do
Turn me upside down shoot dirty pool
You're a movie queen my Norma Jean
With your boom boom boom I'm ready to scream

Hit me like lightning the heat starts a rising

Walk that walk

Face to face my blood races
Oh come a little closer baby
Heart to heart

Walk that walk for me
A bump bump bumpity grind
Walk for me boom boom yeah


Face to face my blood races
Oh come a little closer baby

Walk that walk for me
A bump bump bumpity grind
Walk for me boom boom yeah

Walk that walk for me
A bump bump bumpity grind
Walk for me



Hands Of Time (Angie)
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes/J. & J. Marquez/S. Fontano)

Angie look you've done to me
You left me standing here alone with a memory
And maybe I was too blind to see
You were the best damn thing
That ever happened to me

And if loving you means letting go
I'll just turn and walk away, I wish I could

Turn back the hands of time
Somehow change your mind
All I need is one more try
Angie I wish that you were mine


I lie awake I can't sleep at night
Wondering where you are and who's holding you
Bright lights on the street below
Remind me of the fun we had
The places we used to go, I wish I could

Turn back the hands of time
Somehow change your mind
All I need is one more try
Angie I wish that you were mine

I wish that you were mine

And if loving you means letting go
I'll just turn and walk away

But i'll never walk away, I wish I could

Turn back the hands of time
Somehow change your mind
All I need is one more try
Angie I wish that you were mine

I wish that you were mine
Well I wish you were mine
And I miss you real bad

Angie look you've done to me


Some Kinda Lady
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes)

Oh what's that walking up the street
She's swayin' like a swing want her under my tree
Ooh babe make me wanna dance
I can pick up my heels i can stand on my hands

So what do you say
Little missy
What do you say

Some kinda lady
She's got me on my knees
My kinda lady
Have mercy on me please
Some kinda lady
Don't walk away from me
Oh oh don't go


She's a wrecking ball demolition queen
Shakin' down the walls she's a heartbreakin' dream
I'm in too deep baby I can't sleep
Thinkin' of you it makes me weep

Rock and roll me won't you show me
Rock and roll me don't you wanna talk to me?

Some kinda lady
She's got me on my knees
My kinda lady
Have mercy on me please
Some kinda lady
Don't walk away from me
Oh oh don't go



These Are The Words
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes)

It's a cloudy day but things may change tomorrow
And if the sun don’t shine maybe I'll sit and wait
I've had my share of good times turn to sorrow
It would be easy to let you slip away

How  do you feel on your own
Oh I get so tired of being alone
How to you feel all alone
It's time I came in from the cold

These are the words that I want to say and I want you
These are the words that I used to keep hidden away
These are the words that I want to say and I want you


My bags are packed they just sit and wait
And I'd go for a drive almost drive away
Something drags me back maybe it's just fate
There's no rhyme or reason
Somehow I'm meant to stay

How do you feel on your own
Oh the bed's so big when you're on your own
How do you feel all alone
It's time I came in from the cold

These are the words that I want to say and i want you
These are the words that I used to keep hidden away
I've been throwing bottles in the sea
Message comes back clear to me
These are the words and I want to say and i want you


These are the words that I want to say and I want you
These are the words that I used to keep hidden away



Eyes Of A Stranger
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes)

I used to wait I used to say we would last forever
You ran away that rainy day it went on forever
Now I'm taking your hand in mine
And I know I've been wasting
All my time, you've got

You've got the eyes of a stranger
How the world has changed you
Somehow you're not the same anymore
The eyes of a stranger
Thought the world couldn't break you
You lost your way
When you walked out our door
You're not the same anymore


You used to wait
You used to say we would make it together
You used to be everything to me but now I see
I used to lie awake by the phone
The time has come to go it alone

You've got the eyes of a stranger
How the world has changed you
Somehow you're not the same anymore
The eyes of a stranger
Thought the world couldn't break you
You lost your way
When you walked out our door
You're not the same anymore


Now I'm taking your hand in mine
And I know I've been wasting all my time

You've got the eyes of a stranger
How the world has changed you
Somehow you're not the same anymore
The eyes of a stranger
Thought the world couldn't break you
You lost your way
When you walked out our door
You're not the same anymore



Why Do We Kill
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes/Bob Gilles)

There's crying in the rain over and over
Who you gonna blame now that it's done
Cash in a life for a dime or dollar
Over and over there's dying in the streets

Oh can't you see it's come to be
Why is life like a movie
Fan fantasy won't you see
It becomes you and me

Why do we kill each other
Why do we kill each other

Eyes that look away eyes with no face
Our backs against the wall divided we’ll fall
Television generation's got nothing left to gain
Over and over there's cryin, cryin

Why do we kill each other
Why, why do we kill
Do we sacrifice each other
Why do we kill



Love Ain't Pretty

I never believed in love till the day that I found you
Now I know that true love ain't true
Now you make like the love you take and it's worse when I went through
Now I'm shakin' my blues

(How long) How long's this been going on?
(So long) Are the goin' ups and the goin' downs?
(No, no) Payin' too much for the love I'm gettin'
Hey, what am I gonna do?

Love ain't pretty
And I must be going on
I say love ain't pretty
No love ain't pretty


Well I could've gone east, could've gone west, I had nothing left to lose
That's before I met you
And if I knew then what I know now it'd be so damn easy to choose
I ain't missin' you

(How long) How long's this been going on?
(So long) Are the goin' ups and the goin' downs?
(No, no) Payin' too much for the love I'm gettin'
Hey, what am I gonna do?

Love ain't pretty
And I must be movin' on
I say love ain't pretty
No love ain't pretty


It's a bad situation
And I best be movin' on
It's a bad situation
And I gotta, gotta, gotta go

(How long) How long's this been going on?
(So long) Are the goin' ups and the goin' downs?
(No, no) Payin' too much for the love I'm gettin'
Hey, what am I gonna do?

Love ain't pretty
And I must be movin' on
Love ain't pretty

Love ain't pretty
And I must be movin' on
I say love ain't pretty


Love, love ain't pretty
I've been sending you dead roses, you know I gotta know


Carry The Torch
(Jesse Bradman/David Sikes/Bob Gilles)

If you got a little teardrop
Running from your eye girl
I hope it’s there for me
I hope that you can see
It's true I've made mistakes girl
Some things never change
In a world that's broken hearted
My feelings still remain

I still carry the torch
Ain't no girl that's ever been close
And that's the way I feel about you
I still carry the torch
Ain't another lover gonna help me recover
And that's the way that's the way it is


Stole my heart away from me
And I don't want it back
I know I never took a stand
I know I'm not an easy man
And I always learn the hard way
For me that's been the rule
You were the best thing in my life
And I've been such a fool

If you got a little teardrop
Running from your eye girl
If you got a little teardrop
I hope it’s there for me

I still carry the torch
Ain't no girl that's ever been close
And that's the way I feel about you
I still carry the torch
Ain't another lover gonna help me recover
And that's the way that's the way it is
