Lyrics


1. THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell ?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown...

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so




2. ROCK THE NIGHT

I've gone through changes
I've gone through pain
But there's not enough reason for me to go insane
I know the feeling, when it grows
I'm in a rage up from my head down to my toes.

You know it ain't easy
Running out of thrills
You know it ain't easy
When you don't know what you want.

Rock now, rock the night
'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
You'd better believe it's right.

I know my limit
Just what it takes
When things ain't good enough
I just pull the brake
Sometimes it's easy
Sometimes so tough
But just have one thing clear
I can't get enough




3. CARRIE

When lights go down, I see no reason
For you to cry. We've been through this before
In every time, in every season,
God knows I've tried
So please don't ask for more.

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again, somewhere, again

I read your mind, with no intentions
Of being unkind, I wish I could explain
It all takes time, a whole lot of patience
If it's a crime, how come I feel no pain

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change Carrie, Carrie, Carrie
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again, somewhere, again

When lights go down




4. CHEROKEE

They lived in peace, not long ago
A mighty Indian tribe
But the winds of change,
Made them realize, that the promises were lies.

The white man's greed, in search of gold
Made the nation bleed
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn.

Cherokee - marching on the trail of tears.

They were driven hard, across the plains
And walked for many moons
Cause the winds of change,
Had made them realize, that the promises were lies.

So much to bear, all that pain
Left them in despair
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn




5. TIME HAS COME

Long for the sailor, beneath the skies
Long for the white dove, no matter where she flies
Long for the stranger you know so well.

Pray for the soldier, who's wounded bad
Pray for the dreamer, he's still so sad
Pray for the stranger you know so well.

Cause I'm coming home.

Now the time has come

For me to come back home.

Long for the eagle, on wings so strong
Long for the hunter, he won't be long
Long for the stranger you know so well




6. HEART OF STONE

I've told you once and I've told you twice
Wait for that day, when our love will rise
To that song that brought our hearts together.

Even though you're mistreating me
I know the girl that you used to be
For me those days were meant to last forever.

Time after time I'm wondering why
Am I to be all alone
Day after day I pray that you'll stay
Cause you've got a heart of stone.

I walk the streets like a broken man
Oh I wish that you would understand
Even though you're still the one I wait for.

I guess in love there's no guarantee
Sometimes it's not what it seems to be
Even though you're still the one I care for




7. LOVE CHASER

Someone's at your door tonight
Someone wants your love
Is it real or just imagination
You decide to wait inside 'til the break of dawn
In dreams you see yourself seeking affection.

He'll know just who you are
He'll know just where you've been
He'll know just what to do.

Love chaser - If you look deep in his eyes
Then you're in for a big surprise
He can take your breath away
There's nothing you can do or say.

You can feel that someone's at your back
You can hear his pounding heart
But something tells you not to be afraid
Cause even in the darkest night
Someone's at your side
But when morning comes it all starts to fade away




8. ON BROKEN WINGS

Little Jeanie Cried, she believed in all his lies
So much for being good, oh.
Johnny did not rest he did what he thought was best,
He did the best he could.
Don't try to see the world in different ways
Those moments and all those days.
Don't let them faint away...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you'll have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky

Now he's feeling bad
His heart is cold it's o so sad
Somehow he did her wrong, yeaheah
Little Jeanie's heart
Is melting fast ow so fast.
Now she feels so strong
Don't try to see the world in different ways
Those moments and all those days.
Don't let them faint away...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you'll have to fly
Two broken hearts....
Across the sky...

Don't try to see the world in different ways
Those moments and all those days
Don't let them faint away...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you'll have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how.. how you have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky...




9. SUPERSTITIOUS

Keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

I'm not superstitious, I have no doubt
That there's a reason, how things turn out
While things are changin' from day to day
I'll keep this feelin' with me all the way

And I want you to know
That you're on my mind
Every day, all of the time

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

There might be times of wonder
When I'm on my own
Tryin' to find out if love has gone
It might make a difference
It might bring me down
But no superstition is gonna turn things around

And I want you to know
That you're on my mind
Every day, all of the time

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

So keep on walkin' and we'll make things right
Yeah, keep on dreamin' each and every night
We're gonna make it, that's what we'll do
Right to the end girl, we're gonna walk on through

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious




10. OPEN YOUR HEART

Days filled with joy and days filled with sorrow
I don't know just what to do
Am I happy today, am I lonely tomorrow
Everything depends on you

I've been waiting for the angels to knock on my door
I've been hopin' that everything could be like before

Open your heart and tell me what's wrong
Why can't you talk like you used to do before
I don't know if I'm weak, I don't know if I'm strong
Hey girl, I can't cope anymore

I've been waiting...

Open your heart, let me hear you
Make up your mind, I want to hear you call
Open your heart, want to come near you
Make up your mind, oh girl, before I fall

Maybe the sun will continue to shine
Maybe the rain will continue to fall
Maybe you want to leave me behind
Maybe you'll change and give me a call




11. LET THE GOOD TIMES ROCK

You say that you want me
I hope that you do
Cause tell me just where I would be in this world
Without someone like you

When you say that you need me
Like only you can
Oh baby you don't really know what you've done
To the heart of this man

So baby tonight we will celebrate
And talk of the times til it gets real late
Yes baby tonight we'll appreciate
Just what we've got
So let the good times rock

Oh when you squeeze me
And say that you care
There's nothin' I know that could drag me away
When that feelin' is there

Oh the way that you move me
And makin' me feel
Well I could have sworn that I lived in a dream
If it wasn't for real

Oh baby tonight we will celebrate...




12. SIGN OF THE TIMES

When the word is out from the other side
She turns around
Cause day and night she's waited patiently
Now a different kind of world out there
Is to be found
It's over not for everyone to see
This is the way it's meant to be

It's the way that we make things right
It's the way that we hold on tight
I know, it's the sigh of the times
It's the way that we make things turn
It's the way that we live and learn
I know, it's the sigh of the times

It wakes him up, he turns around
And now he's gone
He's been waitin' for this moment desperately
Now the time is right, he's turnin' back
He's going home
Yeah it's over now for everyone to see
This is the way it's meant to be

It's the way that we make things right...

And everytime it's on my mind
I fell so insecure
It worries me to end up here alone
But everytime I realize I need her more and more
I'd never make it on my own

It's the way that we make things right...




13. TOMORROW

Will you be there beside me
If the world falls apart
And will all of out moments
Remain in your heart
Will you be there to guide me
All the way through, I wonder will you

Walk by my side, and follow my dreams
And bear with my pride, as strong as it seems
Will ou be there tomorrow

Will you be there beside me
As time goes on by
And be there to hold me
Whenever I cry
Will you be there to guide me
All the way through, I wonder will you

Walk by my side, and follow my dreams...




14. PRISONERS IN PARADISE

I want to learn how to fly
I want to be respected
I want to get lucky
I want to get out of this dump
I just want to watch TV
I want to be loved
I want to be different
I want a brother and sister
I'd just rather be forgotten
I want to save the world
I want to be understood
I want to be rich
Man, I just want to be somebody

Julie's got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life don't come easy anymore
Still strugglin'on by herself
Got a picture of Jimmy
There on the shelf
And she looks at him and says
Why did we let it go

I know that sometimes baby
We didn't see things eye-to-eye
But I got just one question
Did we have to say goodbye

Just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from heaven's door
We had it all but still we
Wanted more
Now I realize that I can't
Turn back the future's here
To stay but hey
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday

Jimmy still recalls the night
When he took his guitar
And headed on out
To find the big time
That was his dream
He gave up his past
And made it alright
But there's something missin'
In his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want
Ain't what you need

He misses drivin' down
To the lake at night
Holdin' his baby
In his arms so tight
Ain't it hard to find illusions
When you're livin' in a memory

Just like prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
No matter who you are
When you ask yourself
Was it right or wrong
For me to turn away but hey
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday




15. I'LL CRY FOR YOU

I never dreamed that
I could fall
But something's come
Over me
Now I'm sittin' starin'
At the wall
Afraid for my sanity

The sound of your voice
The touch of your skin
It's hauntin' me
I'm still tryin' to come
To my senses
But I can't look back
So I'm takin' my chances

I wanna give you my heart
Give you my soul
I wanna lay in your arms
Never let go
Don't wanna live my
Life without you
But I know when you're gone
Like a fire needs a spark
Like a fool in the dark
I'll cry for you

Wonderin' why I'm
Runnin' scared
From what I belive in
I know that love
Is just another word
To say what I'm feelin'

For once in my life
The future is mine
It's callin' me
I've been searchin' so long
For an answer
But it's too late now
So I'm takin' my chances




16. HALFWAY TO HEAVEN

Another day has come
Can't face it on my own
I almost let you walk away
I guess I should have known
I'll give it to you straight
'Cause some things just can't wait
I've got to make it up to you
And I'll pray it's not too late

'Cause when you look at me
With those sad blue eyes
It stops me cold and I realize
You're all I need tonight

We're halfway to heaven
Lyin' beside you on a night
So still
We're halfway to heaven
I ask you if you'll stay and baby
Say you will

So what's a man to do
To get it through to you
Another lost and lonely night
Would break this heart in two

So let's take a chance
And it'll be alright
Just put your trust in me tonight
Girl we're almost there

We're halfway to heaven
There's something magic
'Bout the way you kiss
We're halfway to heaven
Runnin' with you baby
On a night like this
We're halfway to heaven
I never dreamed that
I could get this high
We're halfway to heaven
Girl I couldn't leave you
Even if I tried

You got me captured
In a crazy spin
You got me so I just
Can't tell the shape I'm in




17. BREAK FREE

Well, it's been another doggone day
I'm ready for this trashed out town
I'll be doing all those crazy things
That make the other heads spin around

They're tellin' me the ride ain't worth the fall
Oh, but stop me if you can, I want it all

'Cause I'm ready, yes, I'm ready
To break free, ready to break free

I'm tired of just killing time
Talkin' 'bout the days gone by
So I'm takin' on the world tonight
I'm out to let my spirit fly

Oh, they say what goes around will come around
But there's nothin' in this world to hold me down




18. SWEET LOVE CHILD

She stands in the doorway
In the pale moon shine
When she looks at me, every part of me,
Brings my soul back to life

Eyes like a rainbow
They cut right through
Oh I'm lost in time
All through my mind
I'm in love what can I do

Sweet love child...

I shiver, I shiver and shake
It's been a long, long time
When she touches me, every part of me
Just comes back alive

She rides like the wind
On a summers night
And she gives and takes
In the love she makes
Sweet Love Child

She makes everything so right

My sweet love child...

By the light of the morning
Like an angel's sigh
I can feel her breath
Lying next to me
With the world locked outside

I can feel
A taste so sweet
And she gives me love
All the precious love
It makes my life so complete

So sweet
