Lyrics


1. ROCKIN' INTO THE NIGHT

Cruisin' down the motorway,
Got my girl by my side.
We're both a little anxious,
Ooo we got love on our mind.
Waitin', anticipatin'
For the fireworks in the night.
Well I swear we were doin' eighty
When we saw those motel lights.

And we were rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night,
Oo hoo rockin,
Rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night,
Yeah... Out on the back street,
Taking love where I can,
I found a sweet madonna
Ooo with a bible in her hand.
She's waiting,
Anticipating well,
For someone to save her soul;
Well I ain't no new messiah,
But I'm close enough for rock and roll.

And we were rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night,
Oo hoo rockin,
Rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night.
And I'm slowin' down
And she's pullin' in

Waitin' anticipatin'
For the fireworks in the night.
Well I swear we were doin' eighty
When we saw those motel lights.
We were rockin',
Rockin,
Into the night,
Ooo yeah
Rockin into the night,
Rockin into the night,
Hoo rockin'!




2. TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX

She claimed to travel in her own Lear jet
When in fact she arrived in a powder blue Corvette
She only stays in the plush hotels
She loves her daddy's cash
'Cause it spends so well
Just watch the way she walks
She's got a double barrel figure
Watch her body talk

[Chorus:]
She's a twentieth century fox, oh watch her walk
She's a twentieth century fox, talk that talk
She got designer jeans, so tight 'n blue
Break out in a sweat when she looks at you

She loves lights, cameras and action
To the boys on the set, she's the star attraction
Just watch the way she walks
She's got it all up front
Just watch her body talk

[Chorus]

She got designer jeans, so tight 'n blue
Break out in a sweat when she looks at you
She loves lights, cameras and action
To the boys on the set, she's the star attraction
Just watch the way she walks
She's got a double barrel figure
Just watch her body talk

[Chorus]

She's a twentieth century fox, oh watch her walk, watch her walk
She's a twentieth century fox, talk that talk
(Walk that walk, talk that talk)
Twentieth century fox, she's a twentieth century fox
Twentieth century fox, twentieth century fox




3. BACK WHERE YOU BELONG

I heard you're askin' how I'm feeling
I guess I'll play it day by day
I'm still around now, my heart is healing
But some things never gonna change
'Cause now I know love ain't easy to find
I let you go, now I'm changing my mind

[Chorus:]
I know that love, it don't come easy
It took so long, it's been hard to find
So love, you must believe me
Ain't gonna let it slip away
I know I was wrong
I want you back where you belong
Want you back where you belong
Back where you belong

I played around now, I've done some dealin'
I found that love should be with you
And so you're gone now, my head is reelin'
Don't wanna be with someone new
And so I go, with a feeling inside me
'Cause I know what I'm leaving behind

[Chorus]

I guess in time I stop and think it over
Everything that we've been through
This heart of mine may never find another
Who loves me just the way you do
Hey girl!

I heard you're askin' how I'm feelin'
I guess I'll play it day by day
I'm still around now, my heart is healin'
But some things never gonna change
'Cause now I know love ain't easy to find
I let you go, now I'm changing my mind

[Chorus]

Back where you belong, hey, hey
I know that love, it don't come easy
It took so long, it's been hard to find
And so love, you must believe me
Ain't gonna let it slip away, baby




4. WILD EYED SOUTHERN BOYS

Its a hot night at the juke joint
And the bands pumpin rhythm and blues
Gonna spill a little rock and roll blood tonight
Gonna make some front page news
And the ladies hate the violence
Still they never seem to look away

Cause they love those
Wild eyed southern boys
Wild eyed boys
Wild eyed southern boys

Its a southern point of honor
You got a get right in on the action
You can hear the outlaws holler
Fight for the lady in black
And she's just one in a million
But she's all I need tonight

Cause she loves those
Wild eyed southern boys
Wild eyed boys
Wild eyed southern boys

Wild eyed boys
Oohhh yeah
Wild eyed boys

A man of wealth and power
Is out on the dance hall floor
He got a champagne Eldorado parked outside the door
And he's looking for a honky tonk angel
But he don't stand a chance in hell

Cause he ain't no wild eyed southern boy
Wild eyed boy
Wild eyed southern boy
Wild eyed
Wild eyed southern boy
Wild eyed southern boys
Wild eyed boy
Wild eyed southern boy
Wild eyed boy
Wild eyed boy
Wild eyed southern boys
Wild eyed boys!




5. FADE TO BLUE

Faded curtain, faded moon, through a broken sky
Staring at a photograph, the ghost of you and I
Those were times, yeah, those were good times that we shared
We thought those nights would never end....

Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
I'm just a shadow on the highway..........Fade to Blue.

I hear you cryin' in your sleep
I can feel it 'cross the miles
Love unspoken runs so deep
Like the tears behind your smile
Those were times, yeah, those were hard times that we had
I'd even take them back again.....

Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
Another shadow on the highway.......Fade to Blue.

......I fade to...I fade to...I fade to blue
(Every night I fade to blue)

There'll be times, girl, there'll be good times on the way
I'll always be comin' back again.




6. IF I'D BEEN THE ONE

I've been lost inside, empty space in my heart
And some things never change, oh
How it hurts me and how it's tearin' me apart
And it just goes on and on

Can you read my mind
Take a good look at my face
Could you take the time
Just to stand here in my place

What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you just wanna cry, look inside
Can you read my mind? Oh oh

When I hear your name
Feel so cold deep inside
Still it's hard to explain, oh
What your love meant to me
They say time will heal the pain
But it just goes on forever

Can you read my mind
Have you closed the door on love
Can you be so blind
Did you think I'd just give up

[Chorus:]
What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when inside you just wanna cry, wanna cry
What if I'd been the one to say goodbye, goodbye
Could you smile when it hurts so deep inside
And it never fades away, Fade away

Time can't erase the reasons why
Count my mistakes and the heartaches
Since you said goodbye

[Chorus]

Never fades away, no it don't fade away




7. REBEL TO REBEL

When the night winds down and my thoughts run deep
And the Lord hangs a black cat moon
As I lie awake I swear I heard a song in the wind
In the southern breeze I can hear the strummin'
of a six string just outta tune
And a whisky soaked voice
Singing 'bout places he's been
Cuttin' through the night
Like a siren's song
He's tellin' me tonight
Gotta spread the news along

[Chorus:]
Rebel to rebel
To anyone who's ever tried
Rebel to rebel
To take on the other side
Callin' out his name as night is falling
A brother's voice is calling
Sending messages through the past
To rebels like me and you

I can see his face as I watch the stars
From a tour bus heading from town
With a wink and a smile
He'd tell me things words couldn't say
To be a street survivor
Boy you gotta stand tall
Keep that dream in your heart
I'll be there in the fight
Nothing gonna stand in our way
Well I'm taking his advice
As I sing this song
Let fortune roll the dice
And don't you ever forget where you 're from

[Chorus]

Rebel to rebel
Now I see him walk away
Rebel to rebel
Here it come
Now I hear his voice again
Rebel to rebel
To anyone who's ever tried
Rebel to rebel
To take on the other side
Callin' out his name as night is falling
A brothers voice is calling
Rebel to rebel oooh rebels like me
Rebel to rebel, rebel to rebel, rebel to rebel




8. TAKE 'EM OUT

Wake up with a call, throw my luggage in the hall
Go down to the desk, pay for alcohol
Jump into a car, hope we make the plane in time
Smile for all the ladies as we're passin' through the line

I'll be down in the back, where those engines roar
Gonna make that attack on this town once more
(Well) they say we're runnin' late to make it to the show
But when the lights go down, you can sure bet I'm ready to go

Take 'em out
Kickin' up dust, make 'em jump and shout
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Rock 'n roll's what it's all about

Hit the stage runnin', got our motor's runnin' fast
Crankin' up our guitars, gonna kick some ass
Ain't no use in lyin', that's what we came to do
Give 'em all we got to make our message get through

I'll be down in the back, where those engines roar
Gonna make that attack, gonna start once more
People stand in line, waitin' for the show
But when the lights go down, you can sure bet I'm ready to go

Take 'em out
Kickin' up dust, make 'em jump and shout
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Rock and roll is what it's all about

Love to play New York, where the people's got some heart
(They got) Lennon's dedication down in Central Park
Finest looking women that I've ever seen
You know they'll love the band 'cause we'll be soundin' real mean

I'll be down in the back, where those engines roar
Gonna make that attack, on this town once more
(Well) they said we're runnin' late to make it to the show
But when the lights go down, you can sure bet I'm ready to go

Take 'em out
Kickin' up dust, make 'em jump and shout
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Rock 'n roll's what it's all about
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Kickin' up dust, make 'em jump and shout
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Rock 'n roll's what it's all about
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Rock 'n roll's what it's all about
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Kickin' up, kickin' up, jump and shout
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Rock 'n roll's what it's all about
Take 'em out, take 'em out
Kickin' up dust, make 'em jump and shout




9. DEJA VOODOO

Black lights, green eyes starin' me down
The moment I walked in the room
There's this tall, dark woman who's dancin' alone
And she makes me wanna howl at the moon.
Is this a dream, or is it that I've been here before?
Takin' my mind, takin' her time, takin' control. Don't you know?

[Chorus:]
That Deja' Voodoo, New Orleans hoodoo
She's got a mojo from hell
That spell I'm under, sometimes I wonder if she's
Witch, queen, or madamoiselle
If Kama Sutra's too hot to suit ya
Well, you're not her kind of man
That Deja' Voodoo- I will if you do
It's Deja' Vu all over again.

She takes my hand and she whispers to me
And says heaven's just beyond the door
She lights the fire and makes it all come to me
By tomorrow I'll be down on the floor.
Is it a dream, or is it that I've been here before?
Takin my mind, takin her time , takin' control. More and more?

[Chorus)

The moon takes over, desire gets stronger
The feelins won't let me go.
I run for cover, I'm so far under her spell, can't you tell?

Is this a dream, or is it that I've been here before?
Takin' my mind, takin' her time, takin' control. Don't you know??

[Chorus]

...Deja' Voodoo woman......deja' voodoo woman...




10. FANTASY GIRL

Lately I'm learnin
That so many yearnings are never to be
The childhood illusions are merely delusions of a girl that I see

In my minds eye
I see clearly a vision of how it could be
Me and my fantasy girl
Hold on to me
Be my fantasy girl
Don't set me free

Now I've had my share
Sometimes I swear that I've had enough
You end up in sorrow
Broken tomorrows, love can be tough

But my minds eye sees a vision of true love and how it should be
Me and my fantasy girl
Hold on to me
Be my fantasy girl
Don't set me free
Be my fantasy
Yeah yeah yeah
I see clearly a vision of how it could be, yeah
Be my fantasy
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Be my fantasy girl
Hold on to me
Your my fantasy girl
Don't set me free
Be my fantasy girl
Hold on to me
Your my fantasy girl
Don't set me free
Yeah
From this fantasy




11. CAUGHT UP IN YOU

I never knew there'd come a day
When I'd be sayin to you
Don't let this good love slip away
Now that we know that its true
Don't, Don't you know the kind of man I am
No, said I'd never fall in love again
But its real
And the feeling comes shinin thru

[Chorus:]
I'm so caught up in you
Little girl
And I never did suspect a thing
So caught up in you
Little girl
That I never wanna get myself free
And baby its true
You're the one
Who caught me, baby you taught me
How good it could be

It took so long to change my mind
I thought that love was a game
I played around enough to find
No two are ever the same
You made me realize the love I'd missed
So hot, love I couldn't quite resist
When its right, the light just comes shinin thru

[Chorus]

Fill your days and your nights
No need to ever ask me twice
oh no
Whenever you want me
And if ever, comes a day
When you should turn and walk away
Oh no
I can't live without you

I'm so caught up in you

And if ever comes a day
When you should turn and walk away
Oh no
I can't live with out you

[Chorus]




12. HOLD ON LOOSELY

You see it all around you
Good lovin' gone bad
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had
And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago,
Who told me,
Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go
If you cling to tightly,
You're gonna lose control
Your baby needs someone to believe in
And a whole lot of space to breathe in

It's so damn easy, when your feelings are such
To overprotect her, to love her too much
And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago
Who told me,
Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go
If you cling too tight babe,
You're gonna loose control
Your baby needs someone to believe in
And a whole lot of space to breathe in

Don't let her slip away
Sentimental fool
Don't let your heart get in her way
Yeah, yeah, yeah,

You see it all around you
Good lovin' gone bad
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had
And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago,
Who told me,
Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go
If you cling to tightly,
You're gonna lose control
Your baby needs someone to believe in
And a whole lot of space to breathe in

So Hold On Loosely, but don't let go
If you cling too tight babe,
You're gonna lose it
You're gonna -- lose control
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Just Hold On Loosely but don't let go
If you cling too tight babe,
you're gonna loose control

Hold on Loosely, but don't let go
If you cling too tight babe,
you're gonna loose control
yeah, yeah, yeah




13. JUST ONE GIRL

Now some guys,
They wanna run around.
Playin loose, playin fast,
Out there in every town.
But this guy,
I'll be satisfied
With that certain kind o' look
In the corner of her eye.
I'm findin' my direction and I know what counts,
Got my wild side just for one.
I'll give her my affection, never let her down
When the right girl comes along.

I don't ask much
From this big wide world.
Just wanna make a difference
To just one girl.
I don't care
How this whole plan works,
If I can make a difference in the life
Of Just One Girl.

Now the last time
I was losing the race
For the biggest payoff
Lookin' in the wrong place.
But this time,
Now I know what I feel.
Got a handle on it.
Now I'm livin' it real.
There's been so many others,
So many empty nights.
That was never me anyway.
It was just a lonely boy
Who was lookin for his life.
If you're out there
I'm here to say...

I don't ask much
From this big wide world.
Just wanna make a difference
To just one girl.
I don't care
How this whole plan works,
If I can make a difference in the life
Of Just One Girl.

Here's hopin' that this message will find you.
Don't miss it, in a flash it may blind you.
I don't ask much,
Don't wanna change the world.
I just wanna make a difference
To Just One Girl.
Hey!

I don't ask much
From this big wide world.
Just wanna make a difference
To just one girl.
