True Meaning Of Love
(R. Berry)

(Oh) Something was callin' my name
Sayin' it clearly
Life was passin' me by
I had this empty feelin'
Without any key
To unlock what was inside

Wound up spendin' nights
As one big fool
It was only time I had to lose

The true meaning of love
Was in your eyes (in your eyes)
The true meaning of love
It's alright baby don't you cry

With every move you made, turn, shake
And soothe
(Oh) The true meaning of love

(Yeah) There was light
There was wrong
Nothin' seemed to hit quite home
There was the good times
Goin' half out of my mind times
All I could do was hold on

Didn't care at all
How things would go
Everything in life
Had left me in the cold

(Then) The true meaning of love
Was in your eyes (in your eyes)
The true meaning of love
It's alright baby don't you cry
With every move made, turn, shake
And soothe

(Oh) The true meaning

I got so tired of runnin' away
I felt like someone different every day
Oh baby, you turned me
Into someone new

The true meaning of love
Was in your eyes (in your eyes)
The true meaning of love
It's alright baby don't you cry
With every move made, turn, shake
And soothe
The true meaning of love


Sleepless Nights
(R. Berry)

You got me isolated
And out of step
Hesitating
Just pussy whipped
Holdin' on for some solution
To what I've become
This mind pollution
You've done me wrong

Oh those sleepless nights
Lyin' here wide awake
Oh those sleepless nights
Something's gonna break

Oh those sleepless nights
She keeps runnin' through my head
And it's getting old justa lyin' here
Thinkin' about what you did
To you it's nothin' lost
And nothin' gained
Bad luck
(Oh) It's all the same

You say "Sex is revolution"
You little tramp
You see what you lose
You'll never get back

Oh those sleepless nights
Lyin' here wide awake
Oh those sleepless nights
Something's gonna break
Oh those sleepless nights
She keeps runnin' through my head
And if you're getting cold
It's a bit too late
Just think about what you did

Can't find a reason to turn it around
It's easier just walkin' away
I thought you'd see there's more to be found
Something to make you stay
It can't be easy when you can't even
Find the time to save
Yourself the pain
Is there anywhere to run?
Is there anywhere to run?

Lyin' here wide awake
Oh those sleepless nights
Something's gonna break
Oh those sleepless nights
She keeps runnin' through my head
And if you're getting old
It's a bit too late

Oh those sleepless nights
Oh those sleepless nights
Oh those sleepless nights
Oh those sleepless nights


Second Chance
(Pihl/Berry)

Well alright, just one more chance
Out with the truth
Open up your hands
I know I know there was other plans
To hide all you do
Stay flat on your back

I won't wait one minute
Tell me now you're finished (Oh)

Alright alright, time to sound good
Look like a winner
Taste like you should
Hold on, hold on,
I might have lost the bet
What's finished is finished, won't give up on you yet

I got too much at stake
There's one more move to make

Second chance - Second chance
Find a way to start it over again
Second chance - Second chance
Don't turn away
What's done is in the past

No time for glory, I am who I am
You fooled me once
That's enough for this man
Not in it for pain, I paid my dues
I'm barely holdin' on
Gotta make your move

You got too much to lose
Now you gotta choose (Oh)

Second chance - Second chance
Find a way to start it over again
Second chance - Second chance
Don't turn away
What's done is in the past
Alright alright
I'll give you one more chance
Cut to the chase, don't wanna fall flat on your face
I know you know
I'd never do you harm
Let you slip through my fingers, I ain't waitin' no more

Second chance - Second chance
Find a way to start it over again
Second chance - Second chance
Don't turn away
What's done is in the past


Turn Around
(Pihl/Berry)

We can talk about religion
And how to play life's game
Why people are barely livin'
Cause the country's gone insane
The economic situation
Destruction of the land
Any why pieces of America
Wind up in Japan

But when we sit down face to face
On matters of the heart
The answers never find a place
Love breaks us right apart

Turn around and walk away
We're done before we start
Turn around and walk away
How do we mend this broken heart
Don't remember what was said
To make you feel that way
Just beginning when it ends
Turn around and walk away

Wrapped in endless conversation
Till it burns inside our head
Are we killing one another
Is Elvis really dead?
Talk immigration acupuncture
Is God really in our heart
The ending of an era
And if television's art

But we can't ever figure out
A life for me and you
The feeling's there without a doubt
But words do not get through

Turn around and walk away
We're done before we start
Turn around and walk away
How do we mend this broken heart
Don't remember what was said
To make you feel that way
Just beginning when it ends
Turn around and walk away

There ain't no getting around it
Oh deep down inside, I know we're right (Yeah)

But when we sit down face to face
On matters of the heart
The answers never find a place
Love breaks us right apart

(Oh) Turn around and walk away
We're done before we start
Turn around and walk away
How do we mend this broken heart
Don't remember what was said

To make you feel that way
Just beginning when it ends
Turn around and walk away

Turn and walk away (Yeah Yeah)
Just turn
Turn-turn walk away
Turn and walk away (Oh)


Rosie's Cantina
(Berry/Pih/Lauser)

Thinkin' about the time you left me in Omaha
That had to be the worst night I ever saw
It rained the night you left
You walked out while I slept
It took me three days to drown myself
Down at Rosie's Cantina

Now I've been down some dusty roads in search of you
A different face with open arms will have to do
I know they're not the same
But honey can you blame me
For trying to fill these empty pages or go insane

Another man would learn to live without you
Another man would just ease the pain
Another man would get up and walk away

This feeling fades away
Cause I'm losin' track of the time in Rosie's Cantina
Another man would learn to live without you
Another man would just ease the pain
Another man would get up and walk away

I never thought in the coming years
I would hold inside so many fears
I always had you
And holding you close
(Oh) Was a safe, so strong
And then suddenly I was so alone
No more nights and no more days
Since you walked away

(Oh) Another man would find his way without you
Another man would not feel the same
Another man could just throw it all away (Throw it all away)

Another man would learn to live without you
Another man would just ease the pain
Another man would get up and walk away (Just walk away)


So All Alone
(Berry/Pihl)

Hide the lies and the secrets
In the dark back room
The minutes pass like hours
But still think it comes too soon
You think they'd both regret it
You'd see it in their eyes
He breaks her heart and forgets it
Don't need no alibi (Oh)

You just passed that fine line
Between love and hate
But maybe now it's about time
To turn and walk away

So all alone
So all alone
Thought love was full of promises
So all alone
So all alone
It doesn't have to be like this
So all alone
So all alone
Gotta make the pieces fit (Oh)

There has to be a reason
Nobody dared to ask
The puzzle's missing pieces
Complete the dirty task

Every eye that saw you
Couldn't really see
There behind excuses
How sad the truth can be (Oh)

No need defending
The life you've come to know
Do you keep pretending
Or just get up and go

So all alone
So all alone
Thought love was full of promises
So all alone
So all alone
It doesn't have to be like this (Yeah)
So all alone
So all alone
Gotta make the pieces fit (Oh)
So all alone
So all alone
There must be more to life than this

It's such a long way
To where we've started and where we've gone
Are we just throwing life away?

(Oh) So all alone
So all alone
Thought love was full of promises
So all alone
So all alone
It doesn't have to be like this
So all alone
So all alone
Gotta make the pieces fit
So all alone
So all alone
There must be more to life than this
(Yeah)


Best Of Me
(Pihl/Berry)

(Oh) I sit here in silence
The words from my pen fall like tears in the rain
A lost lonely island
And man that fears walk forever in pain

How could you deny
I gave you the best of me
For you I would die
Give up every part of me

(Oh) Time is not forgotten
But now it's just pictures and pages of feelings
Inside me still burnin'
The warmth filled the space that's inside me still yearning

How could you deny
I gave you the best of me
For you I would die
Give up every part of me

So in a circle we went round and round
Till that circle shattered and our hearts came tumblin' down (Oh)
Till the end was forever, now it fades
Till you can't hear a sound

Sit here in silence
The words from my pen fall like tears in the rain
A lost lonely island
And man that fears walk forever in pain

How could you deny
I gave you the best of me
For you I would die
Give up every part of me



(The World Is) Changin'
(Berry)

Time moves slow
Some things we'll never know
Have we lost our way?
Can we see a day when

The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing
Now is the time to break through

Don't look back
(Oh) Never mind what's left
In our tracks
And to feel no shame

What in the world is there to gain
By this, by that
And our hearts just slip
Through the cracks
As we sit, and we sleep
And we wait and we hesitate as

The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing
Now is the time to break through
(And) The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing

Waiting for the day
Waiting for the day (yeah)
Before the whole world comes tumbling down
Life is up without a sound
Now should have looked the other way?

(And) The world is changing
Times are changing
I am changing
Now is the time to break through


Endless Nights
(R. Berry)

We used to talk 'bout spending our lives on the streets
(Oh) Those were the good times
Hiding away somewhere in the night
Just you and me, we knew it would be alright
What did this mean when we said goodbye
Why does this cold, lonely feeling get lost by your side

Endless night
We always found ourselves those endless nights
Just pretending that our love was as before
Could we find something more

Now since we've been down different roads
I worked too late then spend most of my time alone
It's not that I don’t like the single life
It's just that it does not compare to what was you and I
And now by giving it one more night
(Oh) If it doesn't come back
We already said our good-byes

Endless nights
We always found ourselves those endless nights
Just pretending that our love was ours before
From the eye within the storm we found a paradise
We both thought we could see paradise
We turned those pages back to how it was before
Could we find something more
Could we find something more

(Oh) Endless nights
We always found ourselves those endless nights
Just pretending that our love was as before
From the eye within the storm we found paradise
We both thought we could see paradise
We turned those pages back to how it was before
Could we find something more


You've Changed
(R. Berry)

How was I to know if I had fallen
You wouldn't catch me
I was always there for you
I didn't know when I was needing
You wouldn't help me
Though all I had given you used

My daddy warned me that the world was tough
But he also said that you would hold me up

I've seen you stumble with no footing
But when you're running
I would always run with you
Don't you think it's funny that you used me
Cause as you knew me
I always believed in you

I thought that we would spend the rest of our lives
Like brothers in arms, together we'd fight

But you've changed
I can't believe that you've changed
And the words I trusted were wrong
So you don't have to say them again

The smiles that could hides a million sins
I won't believe it again
And though you think you're the same
You've changed

(Oh) deep inside a world you were defending
You were pretending that no one really knew me
But in the end you could have told me
I would have only tried to help you through

I thought that we would spend the rest of our lives
Like brothers in arms, together we'd fight

But you've changed
I can't believe that you've changed
And the words I trusted were wrong
So you don't have to say them again

The smiles that could hides a million sins
I won't believe it again
And though you think you're the same
You've changed

You've changed


Hurts So Bad
(R. Berry)

It's not easy livin' in this city
The days are hard and the nights are harder yet
Time passes fast of what a pity
It isn’t finding what will last

But you and I gave it our best

Oh why does it hurt so bad
Given up what we had
Now that the path has led us separate ways
And why does it hurt so bad
Lost is the life we could have had
How did we let those times just slip away

Sometimes the important things just ain't enough
At times they just get in the way
And people that surround you they eat you up
They'll make you half insane from what they say

In a world where feelings fly
We fade away

Oh why does it hurt so bad
Given up what we had
Now that the path has led us separate ways
And why does it hurt so bad
Lost is the life we could have had
How did we let those times just slip away
Keep it all inside
Ain't gonna cry all night
I've had enough of good-byes

But you and I, we gave it our best

Oh why does it hurt so bad
Given up what we had
Now that the path has led us separate ways
And why does it hurt so bad
Lost is the life we could have had
How did we let those times just slip away


Find A Way
(Berry/Fitzgerald)

I sit here writing what I thought was the start of the end
You say that some things must change
But to make us just friends (Oh baby)
Can't find a reason
But I guess I never heard what you said
And now with time alone I just lie here in bed

On my own for so long baby
And now I've opened up my eyes

And we'll find a way
We’ll find a way (Oh yeah)
Now the feeling is right
And I gotta find a way back to you

You have to realize
That a woman needs to deal with the man
Something inside has locked out
Everything that tries to get out
Every move, every day
Try to hold onto what I have
Try to think 'bout what the future brings
And look back on where I've been

I've made you wait for so long baby
And now you're hurt inside

But we'll find a way
Find a way (Oh yeah)
Now the feeling is right
And I gotta find a way back to you
Oh find a way
We'll find a way (Oh yeah)
But we'll find a way

You get tired of hearin' those maybes
Kept believin' it would be alright
Still reachin' for the good life baby
Runnin' out of time
Have to draw the line

(Oh) we'll find a way
We’ll find a way (Oh yeah)
Now the feeling is right
And I gotta find a way back to you


My, My, My
(Berry)

My, My, My, My, My, My

Come on everybody the time is here
Move on over slide it into gear
The heat from our bodies bound to raise the roof
Come on - let's show them what we can do

(Oh) My, My, My
Can't get the feelin' out of my head
My, My, My
Tell me I'm wrong, but I like that
My, My, My
Something's gotta give or I'm gonna explode
My, My, My
I'm outta my mind, it's an overload

Come on everybody the ground is gonna shake
Rattlin' the floor, it's a human earthquake
Raisin' the temperature - burnin' your feet
Now off your ass and on to the street

The fire burns - can't sit still
The world keeps turnin'
The time is here - gotta make way
There's nothin' left to hear

My, My, My


This Is The World
(Berry)

There's a hole in the middle of something that I said
From a place in time where anger filled my head
And the feelings that were hard as a rock
This angry boy who'd had enough
Slowly opened his eyes and raised his hands

I was wrong
This is the world to live in
To play the hand you're given
No reason to doubt anymore
I was wrong
This life is what you make it
How you give and take it
I should have known all along

All the lost and lonely curled up in their beds
Has the good survived, will old wounds start to mend
Now the years are gone in memories
And the words we spoke. Now let them be
Let the optimist inside you raise his hands

Talkin' about between each other
What you do and you say
Holding onto one another
This is the world to live in
Este es el mundo en Que vivimos
Kono sekai de seikatsu shiyo

X2
I was wrong


Tell Me Something Good
(S. Wonder)

You ain't got no kind of feeling inside
I got something that will sure 'nuff set your stuff on fire
You refuse to put anything before your pride
I got something that will knock all your pride aside

Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you love me
Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you like it, yeah

Got no time is what you're known to say
I'll make you wish there were 48 hours to each day
Problem is you ain't been loved like you should
What I got to give will sure 'nuff do you good

Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you love me
Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you like it, yeah

Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you love me
Tell me something good (tell me, tell me, tell me)
Tell me that you like it, yeah


Love Win
(R. Berry)

Stuck here in the middle
No this is not the time
That love will win
Something had to happen

We just couldn't carry on
With this love affair
It's early in the morning
But I waited up all night
I'm sure you have your reasons
But I'm tired of your lies
Stuck here in the middle
No this is not the time
For love to win

Trying to keep together
What we had at the start
But that was then
Now I only feel inside
When we're apart
It's at the end
Oh it's early in the morning
But I don't feel confused
It gave me time to think
About what I should do
Stuck here in the middle
No this is not the time
For love to win

Chorus:
Had time to think about the good times
Had time to think about those lonely nights
Had time to think about the way I feel inside

Stuck here in the middle
No this is not the time
For love to win
Something had to happen
We just couldn't carry on
With this love affair
Oh kept hiding from this feelin'
That's so hard to deny
Not strong enough to face it
Til you cheated tonight
Ain't no more pretending
This is not the time
For love to win

(Chorus)

It's so easy when I figure it out
From  your point of view
But I'm just me
And little old me is done
With being abused -- when

(Chorus)


I'd Give Anything
(R. Berry)

You start out running
Motor on through
Signs keep changing
But you're running
No looking back
Ain't no fool
You were smothered
By hopes and dreams
And get rich quick schemes
Just smothered yeah

But I'd give anything
I'd give anything
To hold it in my hands
To be a better man
I'd pay almost any price
Just about any price
For the future of my children
To make it better than the world
I leave behind

I've made my mark
On the world and the girl
That stole away my heart
On the friends and family
I've become a part
Of the sun and moon
And changing tides
I've made my mark yeah

Chorus

I've made my livin'
With this old guitar
And a bit of luck
I kept trying
And I followed through just enough
I got a small boy now
With dreams of his own
No soil to plant his feet on
Just concrete sidewalks
And silicon aggravations

Chorus


Missing Piece
(R. Berry)

I was a lonely man
Hard and destructive
Shy and reclusive
Buried in something
I couldn't understand
Self destructive
Highly delusional
Empty and hurtin'
I was a lonely man
A lonely man

I was a tender touch
Lookin' for a fallen angel
Running away from changes
Watched my arrangement fall
From the highest mountain
To the valley so deep
Love was emotion
That I couldn’t be
I was a lonely man

Then you set me free
The silence
That once deafened me
And blackened my eyes
I totally denied the mystery
My tragedy
I'm wiser now
That missing piece

I was looking for something
More than time
Deeper than words
Brighter than eyes
I tried
To pull up inside of me
The bone and the blood
The earth and the sun
That was covering me
It covered me

Chorus

There was a time
When days were empty
There was a time
When the truth was lost
There was a time
When the end
Of the world seemed near
I could give
The whole thing a toss
Oh I was lost


Building Wisdom From The Wounds
(R. Berry)

Just one doubt the shortest word
Could break the hold
That fragile balance
That drives me
That fuels my flame
The fine line
Between state of mind
And what is real
Those hidden fears
That surface
Then disappear

In those broken dreams
You hide away
On the battlefields
Of the human race
In the darkness
Of your room

Building wisdom from the wounds
You gather up the strength
Building wisdom from the wounds
The path we choose to take

There's a light in every heart
In every soul
The glow we need to guide us
To play the game
You gotta fly each day
And follow through
Carry on
Lead the charge
Then fight it
Not look away

In those broken dreams
You hide away
On the battlefields
Of the human race
In the darkness
Of your room
Building wisdom from the wounds

Chorus

Somewhere, somehow
Nothing ever stays the same
Stand tall, shout out
Everything is all right
Take a look around you
Find the path
That carries you through

Chorus


Call Of The Wild
(G. Pihl, R. Berry)

I had this dream
Just the other night
It was you and me baby
It was working out fine
It was hot then cold
And slippery and wet
You were in my reach
Then out again

It's the call of the wild
And I'm hearing my name
Crashing like thunder
Rushing through my veins
The rage of emotions
As it twists and spins
It's the call of the wild
And it's pulling me in

Something in the corner
Of my darkened room
Broke the silence
Way too soon
It could have been sunlight
Could have been mood
Could have been my feelings
Dreamin' about you

It's the call of the wild
And I'm hearing my name
Crashing like thunder
Rushing through my veins
The rage of emotions
As it twists and spins
It's the call of the wild
Pulling me in

Find a place to hide the need
There's no other way
Sometime scattered plant the seed
Before they blow away

I had this dream
Same time and place
It was you and me baby
But it all blew up in my face
Smoke filled
Fire burned
Water flowed
And passion turned
You were in my reach
And then out again

It's the call of the wild
And I'm hearing my name
Crashing like thunder
Rushing through my veins
The rage of emotions
As it twists and spins
It's the call of the wild
Pulling me in


Gotta Know
(R. Berry, A. Fitzgerald)

Time seems to run away
It's a breakdown
Knocks you from left to right
Then to the ground

I---Gotta know
I---Gotta know

It's a slice of the common man
And we hold on
It's a chance that you gotta take
Before it's all gone

I-Gotta know

Slip and sliding your life away
Lookin' for the sign
But the world has changed
The doors are heavy
And the price is high
Just open it up
And let it fly

Time seems to slip away
It's a breakdown
Lost if you don't awake
Before you hit the ground
I gotta know


Young Blood
(R. Berry)

It's all mine here
The earth the wind the sun
In a world where
No one's allowed to come
Wrap up my feelings
Block that innocence
Start to run

Young Blood burnin
Young Blood must stay strong
One look, searchin
Young Blood
Gotta make it til the morning sun comes on

Give up nothing
The knife, the gun, my soul
Won't tell you something
My grip the hand can't hold
Without a warning
The world starts caving in
All this fighting

Young Blood burning
Young Blood must stay strong
One look, searching
Young Blood
Gotta make it til the morning sun comes on

Close my eyes and nothing changes
Lined up all the same, nothing's gained
It's a life just what you make it
One, two, three
Can you show me you from me

Not giving up, not giving in
I'm tired and weak seems I just can't win
Still I'm turning round, moving quick
I don't see nothing that a boy can't fix

Young Blood


It's A Long Way To Go
(Pihl/Berry)


So we all got our life you say
Like you're the chosen one
Others just fade away
I lie in my bed
Safe like you each night
While on my television
People are dyin'

Maybe some country
On the other side of the road
Holdin' their children - Man
That could be my girl
With the house knocked down
And the struggle all around
The flame still burns

It's a long way to go
To find your freedom
It's a far cry
From the life we know
Someone paid the price
For what we're reaping
Sacrificed their heart and soul

I sit here in my easy chair
The blood of my brothers
All but forgotten
You know I had friends
That went off
And never came back
So that I
Could grow to my tallest

We were all sitting in a circle
And singing our favourite song
Never knowing that
Off in the distance
That sound we hear
Was war

Chorus

Off in the distance
It starts to rain
The blood of innocence
The face of loneliness
Pain drops like water
On the empty game
Played on the battleground
They hid without a sound
Holding their hands out
Trying to wash away the shame

So we come out
With our life and limb
And the blood in our veins
Grabs a chance to live
Gotta ticket to freedom
That shields me
From all I fear

Here in the arms, Of a nations warmth
We sail to the edge
And push across the shore
In the strength of her belly
With open eyes
We find what the fighting's for

Chorus


Without You
(Berry, Pihl)

Life's a game
I swear it's a game
Fields of fiery mountains
Gone insane
It's a test
Watching who comes out
The other side
Held up by truth
Burdened by the lies

Learning something new
About my life
Without you
Letting go of feelings
Locked inside

It's a shame
A God damn shame
That we trivialize
Someone else's pain
In the comfort zone
Beneath the sun we lie
In the belly of the beast
Where the deal is hot
We wait

Learning something new
About my life
Without you
Letting go of feelings
Locked inside

Safe and warm
The memories, the feelings lost
Cold and lonely
The end of it all

So I fall
But I've seen it all
And nothing is like I saw
Along the way
So baby open up
And let me in
I'll never think that love
Is for the weak
And leave again


It's My Life
(R. Berry)

Found myself workin'
Nine o'clock every mornin'
Someone said a job
Could do some good for me
I thought it was my ticket
To the things
That I really wanted
Now I'm livin my life
For a telephone ring

Well it's my life
Baby don’t you know it
It's my life
We're talkin' about me
Well it's my life
You know I don't control it
I just gotta break free

Now early in my bed
Hear the radio blowin'
Talkin' about things
That I never have seen
Music in my head
Keeps my eyes wide open
Now something in the rhythm's
Gonna set my soul free

But it's my life
Baby don’t you know it
It's my life
Now we're talkin' about me
Well it's my life
I know I don't control it
I just gotta break free

Now I know it's not an easy life
Livin' outside these walls
But I'm going to
Give it everything I got
Ain't givin' up
Not givin' in
Gotta tell you baby
I had enough

Runnin' 'round in circles
Acting like I don’t know better
Wonderin' if the company is
Happy with me
How I hear the whistle blowin'
But my head ain't feelin' better
I guess I should have told them
Exactly what I need

Oh it's my life
Baby don’t you know it
It's my life
We're talkin' about me
Well it's my life
You know I don't control it
I just gotta break free


Don't Turn Away
(R. Berry)

Never said I was the hero type
Never said I knew wrong from right
But now I sit here
Trying to save the love
I have with you
You see my mind's
Full of questions
Things I should
Have been asking
To face it is hard
But the two of these hearts
Will soon end

I see it again and again
Your eyes always show it
You think I don’t know it
Each piece of the life you spend
Living right on the edge
Keeps you safe from the lonlieness
Here it comes again
Closing your eyes
As you try to hide the emptiness
Will it ever end

No don't turn away

Looking back through old photographs
Start to finish
Did you look like that
Now all I see
Sitting next to me
Is someone I've never me
And baby
Denying the reasoning I've figured out
You say there's nothin'
We should talk about
Ain't it just like you
To take it or leave it again
Oh I see it again and again
Your eyes always show it
You think I don't know it
Each piece of the life you spend
Living right on the edge
Keeps you safe from the lonlieness
Here it comes again
Closing your eyes
As you try to hide the emptiness
Will it ever end

No don't turn away

I see it again and again
Your eyes always show it
You think I don't know it
Each piece of the life you spend
Living right on the edge
Oh keeps you safe from the lonlieness
Here it comes again
Closing your eyes
As you try to hide the emptiness
Will it ever end
No don't turn away


Gotta Find That Woman
(Fitzgerald, Berry, Pihl, Lauser)


Do It For Free
(S. Hagar, J. Harms)

Would you do it for love
Would you do it for pride
If you gave it away
Would you be satisfied

On your hands and knees
If the price is right
You know you say you believe
But would you stand up and fight

You better ask yourself
Before you criticize me
Are you a victim of the system
Or the powers that be
If there was nothing to gain
Would you do it for free
Would you do it for me

You give it away in the bedroom
What you sell on the streets
You spend a fortune on a rise
Then strip it down to the beat

You better ask yourself
Before you criticize me
Are you a victim of the system
Or the powers that be
If there was nothing to gain
Would you do it for free
Would you do it for me

Are you satisfied
Do you love what you do
Is your head straight and tight
Or will money make you tell
A bold face lie

I think you better ask yourself
Before you criticize me
Are you a victim of the system
Of the powers that be
If there was nothing to gain
Would you do it for free
Would you do it for me


Change
(Berry)

Walkin' down on every street each night
All I see - this cryin' - this pain at my feet
There's a man over there, ain't doin' nothin'
While someone else is dyin' for the deal to be made
I see a poor man lookin' out a broken window
Riches just out of reach
But it’s all in the palm of some fast walkin' smooth
Talkin' palm of another man's hand (oh)

The earth moves, the ground shakes
We close our eyes, but it don't go away
We all need a little change out there

(Oh) We got a man in a big house
His arms danglin' on strings
With an army at his feet
To put the bite right into his sting
While life lives on in boxes and bags
There's something wrong with the vision of this king
(Oh) indirection, persecution, liars run free
On the sidewalks of the human race
Gotta make that good, a schoolboy try
But everybody's late
Or worried or just plain blind to our state
We're not a pleasant race to be (Oh)

We all need a little change

Another day goes down,
I lie here wide awake
I can't take it anymore - no rain pouring down me all around me
I, I just don't know what it, what it means anymore

The earth move, the ground shake
We all need a little change


Tonight
(Pihl/Berry)

It's another night like any other night
Nothin' as it seems
There's another fight between my brothers and
The woman of their dreams
Among words and screams
I hear them in my sleep

Tonight, I can tell there's love inside
We can change from dark to light
Put our trust in what is right
I can feel it here tonight

Here I go again, I'm going to get involved
Where others stay away
It seems like enough to have the problem solved
But soon we have to save the day
But to find a way
To join the heart and soul

Here we go again we're on our way
To hurting someone that we love
It's another dingy hideaway where we can
Tell ourselves that love is war
And it's always fair to even up the score
We fall once more

I can tell there's love inside
We can change from dark to light
Put our trust in what is right
It can all take place tonight


Cross That Line
(Fitzgerald/Berry)

Well this is some life
Starin' out this window with the sun beatin' down
I must be some sight
Sit here feelin' sorry for my situation now
I'm in it so bad
Started countin' every minute
There is no turnin' back
Just a fool kid
Scattered along the shore
There must be something more

Lyin' here with eyes closed
In the dark see a river
That keeps movin' on forever
As the wind blows
Changing colors like the weather
Blinding light down the center
Of a new road
With every step I move quicker
Though my heart has never been
And my soul knows (Oh)
Pieces of life unseen
Nothing is had for free

So we're finding our way
Gonna leave this behind
The light at the end of this tunnel
It just 'cross that line

With my fist closed
Striking out at every minute
Not believing for a second
That a man should know
In the reflection of his years
A reason to be there
Must be an overload
As my stomach pulls up tighter
My head is feelin' lighter
My hands are cold
Scattered along the road
Watching as dreams unfold

So we're finding a way
Gonna leave this behind
The light at the end of this tunnel
So we're finding our way


The Gift
(G. Pihl)

Oooo it took me years to appreciate
All the little things that make us smile
Like the tears that joy can bring
You can't rush it
It takes awhile
It thought cash was everything
The more I got the more I needed
Then I heard an angel sing
She got down on her knees and pleaded

Chorus:
Live must be lived
Don't wait 'til you have all the answers
I've got the time to give to you
There's no greater gift of love
If you've got time to see it through
You'll have the greatest gift of love

There's no place
When you've been misplaced
Just set aside and forgotten
Don't let pride
Push the override
All the apples are rotten

(Chorus)

Hey babe you got nothin' to lose
Ones that you choose
This just might come true
Stand tall and don't shy away
I've got something to say
You wouldn't want me to save

Life must be lived
Don't wait 'til you have all the answers
I've got the time to give to you
There's no greater gift of love
If you've got time to see it through
You'll have the greatest gift of love
I've got the time to give to you
There's no greater gift of love
I've you've got time to see it through
You'll have the greatest gift
You'll have the greatest gift
