Lyrics


1. 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.




2. JUST CAN'T LEAVE YOU ALONE

Stopped by your house, they said you weren't home
But maybe they lied
I would have known if you had come or gone
Cause I stood by your gate two days in a row
Finally left you a note
Said I remember how you smiled at me
And how you picked me out of the crowd
It's funny how the guy next to me swore that it was him you singled out.

[Chorus:]
Wherever you go, I'll follow
'cause I'll never leave you alone
To the ends of the earth, I'll follow
'cause I just can't leave you alone.

You play hard to get, got me climbin' the walls
And I took the fall
And got chased by your security dog
If I change my look, maybe then you would see
Maybe you'd notice me
I'll become whatever you want me to be
I know someday I'll be your guest
All my friends say I'm crazy
The man from the magazine says I'm obsessed

[Chorus]

You may think I'm extreme
But you sang to me ' live out your dream'
So I can't let you slip away now
If my dreams die, then I die
And I know someway, somehow

I know someday I'll be your guest, yeah
All my friends say I'm crazy
The man from the magazine says I'm obsessed

[Chorus]




3. 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........




4. FIND MY WAY BACK

I remember the last time we talked
How I listened but still did not hear
A fool thinks he's wise to it all
Even as love disappears
Now I'm down on my knees like a wounded man
I've made mistakes that I just can't ignore.
I'll follow my heart down this highway
And hope it leads back to your door.

If you could read between the lines on my face
You'd see just what I'm goin' through.
And if you believe in me, each step I will try to replace
Till I Find My Way Back to you .

It's hard to admit when your lost
When pride seems to stand in your way
And the blues is your only companion, walking these streets in the rain.
Still I know in my soul I can get you back
Your memory won't leave me alone
Is your heart free? Or still here with me?
Feels like I'm so far from home.

If you could read between the lines on my face
You'd see the regret showin' through
And if you believe in me
Each step I will try to retrace (...to find my way back..)
If you could feel the tears I cry in the night
Only silence when I call your name
And if it takes all my life
I'll Find My Way Back to you...

I'll Find My Way Back to you
I'll Find My Way Back...
I'll Find my Way back to you.

And If you believe in me
Each step I will try to retrace...(to find my way back)...
If you could feel the tears I cry in the night
Only silence when I call your name
And if it takes all my life
Each step I will try to retrace
Till I Find My Way Back to you.




5. CHANGED BY LOVE

I have seen the full moon breakin'
From behind the raging storm
Saw a rainbow in the makin'
Watched my baby being born
But I never saw the seventh wonder
Watched a hawk turn to a dove
'till I saw a cold heart....
Changed By Love.
Now I'm Changed By Love.

I have been a disbeliever
A doubting Thomas in my time
Did he walk upon the water?
Did the water turn to wine?
I threw my head back to the thunder
Asked for proof from high above
And then I saw a family
Changed By Love.
Now I'm Changed By Love.

Now we will open our hearts
Put an end to this madness, my friend
If we hold on to each other and walk side by side
There's no battle on earth we can't win........together

From a father to a daughter
From a mother to a son
Let their love shine up to Heaven
Let it shine for everyone
Whisper to a hopeless stranger
Tie a message to a dove
Let him fly into a future
Changed By Love.

Whisper to a hopeless stranger
Tie a message to a dove
Send him off into a future
Changed By Love.
...now we're Changed By Love.....

Now the Heavens surrendered the answer to me
I'm Changed By Love.




6. AFTER THE FIRE IS GONE

You never know what the moment means till it's finally gone
You burned so fast, you put out the flame, tell me, what went wrong?
How do you get back to the heat of yesterday?
How do you live feelin' like you're dying more each day?
After the Fire Is Gone
After the Fire is Gone

You had the whole world at your feet and you stood so tall
You played the game one too many times, now you've lost it all
What got you started now is a million miles away
You wake up only to find that you're a little bit too late
After the Fire is Gone
After the Fire is Gone

World keeps turnin', life keeps burnin'
After the Fire is Gone
World keeps rollin' on and on and on and on and on .....
After the Fire is Gone

It's gone, it's gone, it's gone, it's gone.....
After the Fire is Gone.




7. MIRACLE MAN

You say you turned your life around
You got it all worked out
You say the search for higher ground
Ain't what your all about.
And still your reaching in the dark
For the one who holds the key
But all your so called heroes
Ain't what they seem to be
And maybe what you wanted
Ain't exactly what you need....

[Chorus:]
You can lose your heart a thousand times
Lookin' for your Miracle Man
You can try and change the storyline
Hopin' things will be better then
But when you look to a higher love
To save you where you stand
It's only then you'll find your Miracle Man.

No satisfaction in your world
It's left you all undone
The happiness is in you, girl.
Don't give it up for no one.
You know its time to break down
You know it's time to lose control
And trust the one who loves you
To your heart and soul.
And knowin' that your needed
Is all you need to know......

[Chorus]

He's not on any corner
It's hard to track him down
You won't find the answer
Walkin' the streets of this town.
Try lookin' inside yourself.

[Chorus]




8. SHELTER ME

There's a woman who tries to hide
From a man who's dark inside.
For her children she says a prayer
Fear and desperation keeps her there.
Will redemption come around in time to save her?
She wants to run from the life that he gave her. She cries....

Love, come and Shelter Me,
Your light is all I need to survive.
Take me from where the cold wind's blowin,
To where the healing water's flowin',
Love, come and Shelter Me.

...and there's a beggar, feels like half a man.
He fought the war, now he fights the pain.
He was a hero in a foreign land
Now he's flat broke and stranded in the rain.
But his dignity runs deeper than the ocean
In a voice that trembles with emotion, he cries...

Love, come and Shelter Me
Your light is all I need to survive.
In a world where the cold winds blowin'
Will your love be a shelter for me?

So blind, yet we try to see
Fallin' short of what could be
All hopes and dreams goin' nowhere.
So we pray for a new tomorrow
To wash our sorrows away

Pray for a new tomorrow
To wash our sorrows away...

Love, come and Shelter Me...




9. HOMELESS GUITAR

Well, I know how it feels to be ripped from my roots
And tossed into a world unbending.
Not long ago I was bitten by the truth
Some folks spend their whole life pretending.
Now I start each mornin' with the sunlight by my side
Find another highway, hitch another ride
And I use this six-string like an archer wields his bow
I believe when the arrow finds its mark
It pierces the soul.

[Chorus:]
Three songs for a quarter each time I open my case
Four chords and the voice of a good man fallen from grace
No pity for me mister, I'm proud to be a drifter
A long shot from bein' a star
You know, the times ain't been easy
For me and my Homeless Guitar.

Now I know how it feels to be judged in a glance
Stripped of your pride and your passion.
I only know that the rivers of the soul
Run deeper than birthright or fashion.
I see you look me over, feel the weight of your stare
I'm sendin' you a message but you act like you don't care.
I see a ripple, a crack in your facade
You know, it really don't matter who you think you are
We're the same under God.

[Chorus]

I thank the Lord above for the gift He's given me
I'm richer than most men
Got a friend in my six-string
In a world where trust ain't got no guarantee
If you ain't got a penny
Gonna sing you this song for free, yeah.

Oh, I use these six-strings like an archer wields his bow
I believe when the arrow finds its mark
It pierces the soul.

[Chorus]




10. SAVING GRACE

Without direction I walked the night
I was alone, a single beam of light
One glance and you changed my blues
To a prism of light, a thousand hues.
Now, I must climb to the rainbows arc
Who knows, I might find a halo for your heart.
Whenever I'm lost for words
And my whole world's fallin' apart.....

[Chorus:]
You are my Saving Grace
You are the light of a love everlasting
I find a hiding place in your arms
My one and only Saving Grace.

I fought the world with a restless heart
Kept my emotions locked away in the dark.
Then you came to build me up
When this world could only tear me apart....

[Chorus]

For the rest of your life
You can count on me
To never let you down.
When you whisper to me
You give me strength to believe
That I can hold on somehow.

[Chorus]




11. SHE LOVES TO TALK

She wakes up in the mornin', puts her face on
Grabs a cup o' coffee then she's on that phone..

That woman loves to Talk (...she loves to talk...talk)
Yeah, she's what I want (she's what I want)
I don't mean to sound complainin'
She's my source of entertainment

Conversation ain't no trouble...in this family
She keeps me stimulated more than my new TV

She shoulda been a politician...
Got more wind than an air condition..

She's something else when we turn down the light
It's hard to resist her, it's hard to explain
I love to hear her voice when she calls my name

That woman loves to Talk! (...she loves to talk...talk..)
Yeah, she's what I want (she's what I want)
I wouldn't change a thing about her
Wouldn't live this life without her

She could own Southern Bell ..for as much as she talks
She gets her recreation makin' long-distance calls!

Yeah she's what I want (she's what I want)
I don't mean to sound complainin'

12. TROUBLE

I only know you by reputation
It's time I found out face to face
'cause if your sugar, I'll fight temptation
But if you're poison, I need a taste

Girl, I heard you're Trouble with a capital "T"
One look in your eye spells trouble to me
We're talkin' danger, just too blind to see
You're Trouble just waitin' to happen to me!...Trouble...I'm talkin' Trouble!

I'm not the first, no, I've got to face it
But I ain't the last to take the bait
A silver spoon hangs on your bracelet
T-R-B-L on your license plate

Girl, I heard you're Trouble with a capital "T"
I'm new here in town, come on and spell it out for me
We're talkin bad news, I been too blind to see
You're Trouble just waitin' to happen to me!.......Trouble.....
...you're gettin closer, baby
....I see Trouble..
....Trouble's comin over me....
...Yeah, with a capital "T"
T-R-O-U-B-L-E...it's Trouble!

I only know you by reputation
It's time I found out, baby, face to face
'cause if your sugar, I'll fight temptation
But if you're poison, I need a little taste
Tell me, baby, how bad is bad
How mad is mad
Girl, are you all that they say
Yeah, just one touch, is a touch too much
Just one hit goes straight to my head

Girl, I heard you're Trouble with a capital "T"
One look in your eye spells trouble to me
We're talkin' bad news, I been too blind to see
You're Trouble just waitin' to happen to me!...
We're talkin Trouble...
Bad news....(...yes I'm a victim)
Oh, you're Trouble just happens to me...(here she comes!)




13. SHATTER THE SILENCE

You better run, here comes your mama
Her eyes see red this time
You should be workin' boy, instead of daydreamin'
She says that you're a bad one
Got the wrong things on your mind
So you turn up the music loud to block out her screamin'
.....No words of love are ever spoken
....and he's gonna leave this place ...once the door is open

He'll Shatter the Silence with every beat of his heart
The best kept secrets never stay in the dark
Defiance only makes him strong
The child grows up, he ain't silent for long.......not for long

Your daddy tried to buy your silence
His eyes seemed to hold a threat
He'd blame all your bruises on rough games in the schoolyard
The strike of his hand upon you
was all the attention that you could get
Soon you would push your luck just to get all you needed
.......'Til now all the shame remained unspoken
.....But watch how the children rise....once their eyes are opened

They'll Shatter the Silence, now it's their turn to tell
It's a long way from Heaven when you're livin' in Hell
Defiance...It's time to even the score
The child grows up, he ain't silent no more
The Silence....Now it's time to be heard
It's hard stayin' quiet when you can't breathe a word
Silence...It's a two-edge sword
The child grows, he ain't silent no more.....
He ain't silent no more!....no no..

They'll Shatter the the Silence...
Shatter the Silence....(silent no more)
They'll Shatter the Silence......
