Lyrics

1. TREAT ME RIGHT

You want me to leave
You want me to stay
You ask me to come back
You turn and walk away
You wanna be lovers
And you wanna be friends
I'm losing my patience
I'm nearing the end

One of these days
You're gonna reach out and find
The one that you count on
Has left you behind
Don't wanna be no martyr
You don't want no saint
Hold on my baby before it's too late

[Chorus:]
Treat me right
Treat me right
Open your eyes
Maybe you'll see the light

So you think I'm a fool
Well you better be twice
I've had enough baby
It's time to realize
You can't have both ways
It's no way to live
You've done all the taking
It's your turn to give.

One of these days
You're gonna reach out and find
The one that you count on
Has left you behind
Don't wanna be no martyr
You don't want no saint
Hold on my baby before it's too late

[Chorus]

Oh, treat me right

You want me to leave
You want me to stay
You ask me to come back
You turn and walk away
You wanna be lovers
And you wanna be friends
I'm losing my patience
You're nearing the end

[Chorus]

Oh treat me right
Treat me right...




2. YOU BETTER RUN

What ya tryin´ to do to my heart
What ya tryin´ to do to my heart

And now you wanna compromise
What ya tryin´ to do to my heart
You better run, you better hide

You better run, you better hide
You better leave from my side
You better run, you better hide
You better leave from my side

I said yeah , yeah

3. NEVER WANNA LEAVE YOU

Never could say what i wanna say
Never could do what i wanna do
Never could believe you, if it's true
Never could, never would, you make it so hard
I never wanna leave you
I'm always right, you're never wrong
We change the tune but not the song
Over and over
Till it's done, it's never done, never done
You make it so hard
Never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you

Movin' together, comin' apart
You're what i need, I'm what you want
Never could refuse you from the start
Never could, never would, never could
You make it so hard

Never could say what i wanna say
Never could do what i wanna do
Never could believe you, if it's true
Never could, never would, you make it so hard

I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
Never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna




4. HIT ME WITH YOU R BEST SHOT

You're a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
That's okay, let's see how you do it
Put up your dukes, let's get down to it

[Chorus:]
Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

You come on with the come on
You don't fight fair
That's okay, see if I care
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I get right back up on my feet again

[Chorus]

You're a real tough cookie with a long history
Of breaking little hearts like the one in me
Before I put another notch in my lipstick case
You better make sure you put me in my place

Hit me with your best shot, c'mon
Hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire away

[Chorus]




5. HELL IS FOR CHILDREN

hey cry in the dark, so you can't see their tears
They hide in the light, so you can't see their fears
Forgive and forget, all the while
Love and pain become one and the same
In the eyes of a wounded child

[Chorus:]
Because Hell, Hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, Hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love with your bones and your flesh

It's all so confusing, this brutal abusing
They blacken your eyes, and then 'pologize
Be daddy's good girl, and don't tell mommy a thing
Be a good little boy, and you'll get a new toy
Tell grandma you fell off the swing

[Chorus]

No, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell is for children
Hell is for children




6. LITTLE PARADISE

Can you see the view? Can you feel the heat?
I'm savin' no time for you, no time for me
You're up on the news, I'm wild in the streets
I'm under the lights, tonight i won't have to hide the need
But you got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your
Little Paradise

You got fashion secure in your own little world
Diamonds are forever for Hollywood girls
No need to cover, no reason to lie
Life without you Maserati is grounds for suicide

But you got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your
Little Paradise
Little Paradise

You got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your

You got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your

Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
(Fading out)




7. I'M GONNA FOLLOW YOU

I'm gonna follow you, 'till i wear you down
I'm gonna follow you, 'cause this here's my town
You don't know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can't turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)
Ooo, ooo...

I'm gonna follow you, 'till i know your timing
You'll turn some corner soon, and find you can't get by me
You don't know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can't turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)

You see yourself as some kind of lily of the valley
You come around here in your ballet
Slippers padding on my alley
And you know that you can't dance
Cause you know you never had the chance
I'm gonna dance for you!

Ooo, ooo...

I'm gonna follow you, 'till i wear you down
I'm gonna followyou, 'cause this here's my town
You don't know these streets the way that i do ( i do, i do)
You can't turn it on and off the way that i do (i do, i do)

You see yourself as some kind of lily of the valley
You come around here in your ballet
Slippers padding on my alley
And you know that you can't dance
Cause you know you never had the chance
I'm gonna dance for you!

Ooo, ooo...




8. WUTHERING HEIGHTS

Out on the wiley, windy moors, we'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper like my jealousy, too hot, too gready
How could you leave me, when i needed to possess you
I hated you, i loved you too
Bad dreams in the night
You told me i was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my

Wuthering, wuthering, wuthering heights
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window

Ooh, it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine a lot, i find the lot falls through without you
I'm coming back love, cruel heathcliff
My one dream, my only master

Too long i roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right
I'm come home to

Wuthering, wuthering, wuthering heights
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, its me, I'm cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window

Ooh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Ooh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away
YOu know it's me, cathy

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm cathy, I've come home
So cold




9. PRISONER OF LOVE

Cold hard labor, it's a labor of love
Convicted of crimes, the crimes of passion
Caught in a chain gang, the chain of fools
Solitary confinement, confined by the rules
I'm just a prisoner
An inmate of love
Oh I'm a prisoner
Captured by love
With no escape
No where to go
No place to hide
Hey, I'm a prisoner!
I'm just a prisoner

Mending the wounds, the wounds of lament
The knife cut deep, deep into my heart
The romance is over, my passions remain
Still bound to love by this ball and chain

I'm just a prisoner
An inmate of love
Oh I'm a prisoner
Captured by love
With no escape
No where to go
No place to hide
Hey, I'm a prisoner!
I'm just a prisoner

Oh I'm a prisoner
Hey, I'm a prisoner!

Find an escape, a key to the door
I gotta get out, can't take anymore
Make a clean break, to bury the past
I'll shed these chains and be free at last

I'm just a prisoner
A prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner
A prisoner of love
Hey, I'm a prisoner
I'm just a prisoner




10. OUT A TOUCH

I've seen your picture in the paper
On the front of magazines
I've pulled the trigger right at you
PN billboards and movie screens
When i talk, it's to myself
Cause i know your kind, you're like everyone else
Maybe it'll work itself out in time, before i lose my mind
You, you're out-a-touch
All alone in a danger zone, and i think too much
Your out-a-touch

I keep your letters by the mirror
You're the subject of every dream
You're not so invincible, and I'm not what i might seem

When i look, it's in your eyes
And i know your look , you can hypnotize
How long does it have to last like this, a kodachrome kiss

You out-a-touch
All alone in a danger zone, and i think too much
You, you're out-a-touch
You're my sight all through the night
And i see too much
Your out-a-touch

Can't you see I'm obsessed
I'd do anything, I'm possessed
I'm in a constant rage with your luminary stage
I need you, i need you

I've seen your picture in the paper
On the front page of magazines
I've pulled the trigger right at you
On billboards and movie screens

When i look, it's in your eyes
And i know your look, you can hypnotize
How long does it have to last like this, a kodachrome kiss

You, you're out-a-touch
All alone in the danger zone, and i think too much
Your out-a-touch

I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
I need you
