Lyrics


1. LIGHT UP
Light up everybody
Join us in this celebration
Light up and be happy
Sweet, sweet sounds will fill the air
Every day's a holiday when your lips meet mine
The music's keepin' time with our love
You are here, and so am I
The weather's quite divine
So pass me 'round your wine, lovely one
All I need is just one hit to get me by
'Cause baby when your near I'm halfway high
Light up, everybody
Join us in this celebration
Light up and be happy
Sweet, sweet sounds will fill the air




2. LORELEI
When I think of Lorelei my head turns all around
As gentle as a butterfly
She moves without a sound
I call her on the telephone
She says be there by eight
Tonight's the night she's moving in
And I can hardly wait
The way she moves, ooh-ooh
I gotta say
Lorelei, let's live together
Brighter than the stars forever
Lorelei, let's live together
Brighter than the stars forever
Her eyes become of Paradise
She softly speaks my name
She brightens every lonely night
No one's quite the same
She calls me on the telephone
She says be there by eight
Tonight's the night she's moving in
It's time to celebrate
The way she moves, ooh-ooh
I gotta say
Lorelei, let's live together
Brighter than the stars forever
Lorelei, let's live together
Brighter than the stars forever.




3. MOTHER DEAR
Lonely feelings in the city
One room flat with crumbling walls
Sirens play a distant melody
Neon shadows paint the halls
In the thirteen months
I've spent here
With my manuscript and rhymes
I've paid in cash for foolish pleasures
Mother dear you'd call them crimes
Raise the roof
Light the lite
Mother dear, I'm returning tonight
Now I see your concern
Mother dear how you taught me to learn
I been a Roman for survival
Showing two sides of my face
I need the comfort of your wisdom
I'm coming home to your embrace
If by chance I pass before you
Don't discount my gratitude
You're responsible for me here
And of course my attitude
Raise the roof
Light the lite
Mother dear I'm returning tonight
Now I seeyour concern
Mother dear how you taught me to learn
Stayin' up half the night
Wonderin' if what I'm doin' is right
Raise the roof
Light the lite
Mother dear I'm returning tonight




4. LONELY CHILD
Lonely child you make it easy
You give me love like no one can
You're my heart, you keep me movin'
It seems you always understand
My love, I'm your man
Lonely child you make me happy
You take my fears and set them free
Every night you hold me closer
Like two notes in harmony
Come spend your life with me
Lonely child be my lover
We'll make love in the morning light
Weave your magic spell around me
And come spend your life with me




5. MIDNIGHT RIDE
Gonna get you while you sleep
Give you a dream you can keep
To yourself little mama gonna make you feel better
I'm your mystery man in a gold Lincoln
Ain't no reason to do any second thinkin' about it child
Midnight ride
I'm gonna shake ya
Midnight ride
I'm gonna break ya
Midnight ride
I'm gonna take you on a Midnight ride
Meet you little girl back at my hotel
Between you and me we're really gonna give 'em hell
I got something mighty special up my sleeve
All you got to do is just say please
Midnight ride
I'm gonna shake ya
Midnight ride
I'm gonna break ya
Midnight ride
I'm gonna take you on a Midnight ride




6. BORN FOR ADVENTURE
I am the thief of the highway
Rich man you better take hold
'Cause last night while you lie sleeping
I came to steal all your gold
All the King's horses
All the King's men
Surrounded the chapel
To trap me within
A Lady in waiting
Lips red with rouge
She offered me pleasures
I could not refuse
No, no, no
For I was born
Born for adventure
Women whisky and sin
No I'll never surrender
Live by the sword till the end
All the King's horses
All the King's men
Were drinking and dancing at Fezewig's Inn
They spoke of my capture
And of my escape
They called it misfortune
But I called it fate
No, no, no
For I was born
Born for adventure
Women whisky and sin
No I'll never surrender
Live by the sword till the end

8. SUITE MADAME BLUE
Time after time
I sit and I wait for your call
I know I'm a fool, but what can I say
Whatever the price I'll pay for you,
Madame Blue
Once long ago
A word from your lips and the world turned around
But somehow you've changed
You're so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you,
Madame Blue
Suite Madame Blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Suite Madame Blue, the future is all but past
Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more …………..heaven's door
America....America...America...
Red white and blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore
Red, white, and blue, the future is all but past
So lift up your heart, make a new start
And lead us away from here
