1. 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]




2. BACKDOOR STRANGER

Take my chances, rather go to jail
Than see the eyes of a coward runnin' loose and well
He don't care, he couldn't give a damn
Deprived of his victim, he's a ruthless man
He waits in the shadows 'til the man is gone
He moves to the door, now she's all alone
Far as you could see, that's her only way
She fears for her life and what her family would say

[Chorus:]
Back door stranger
A fair warning he's out tonight
A back door stranger
We gotta stop him if the chance is right

You read in the paper, most any day
'Bout back door stranger and his evil ways
The law can't judge because he pleads insane
It's a sign of the times that we got to change
You ask my opinion, he ain't half a man
He's as cold as a snake about to strike again
It's a slap in the face that we tolerate
The pain that he causes worries us grey

[Chorus]

Take my chances, rather go to jail
Than see the eyes of a coward runnin' loose and well
He don't care, he couldn't give a damn
Deprived of his victim, he's a ruthless man
You ask my opinion, got to make a stand
He's cold as a snake, gonna strike again
It's a slap in the face that we tolerate
The pain that he causes, it worries us grey

[Chorus] (x2)




3. BACK ON THE TTRACK

Bad reputation, seems to be my style
I've been categorized as a little wild
The police took my photograph
A hunted boy runnin' from his past
Some even called me the devil's child

At seventeen, I was on my own
Had the clothes on my back, from a broken home
Slapped in the face 'til my daddy got straight
I knew it was time to run

[Chorus:]
Now I'm back, back on the track again
I'm back, I'm holdin' my own, I'm leadin' the pack
I'm back, from a shattered home and a living hell
I'm back, back on the track

First indication, of trouble's up ahead
I saw the flashing blues, I saw the color red
A big commotion at the friendly store
Found a poor man robbed and a kid at the door
"Guilty as charged", or so the judge said

I was sent to school to try to learn a trade
But when the schoolboys laughed I became enraged
I prayed to god that's the last mistake I'd made

[Chorus]

Bad reputation freedom's my desire
I tried to clear my name, I came under fire
A bad situation was a way of life
With a cutthoat laywer given bad advice
The only hope I had was a proven liar

It was win or lose, out to clean the slate
It was some big news when I made the break
And I ran for years to avoid the state
Another chance I was forced to take

Now I'm back, back on the track again
I'm back, I'm holdin' my own, I'm leadin' the pack
I'm back, from a shattered home and a living hell
I'm back, back on the track again
I'm back, back on the track again
I'm back, I'm back on the track again




4. CHAIN LIGHTNIN'

On a rainy night, you showed up at my door
Child of the night, down and forlorn
Still I took you in, it's in the stars above
All girls are made the same, they all need a little love

And the magic of the moment
Exploded with desire
When the time is right, the sparks ignite
And set the night on fire

It's chain lightnin', too hot to fight
Hot on the heels of a saturday night
Chain lightnin', out of control
Straight to the heart and down to your soul
Chain lightnin', heavens above
Another day older, still searching for love
Chain lightnin, too hot to fight
And it's hotter than hell, in the heavens tonight

I was livin' hard, I was feelin' down and lonely
When toward the boulevard, a limousine moved slowly
And I noticed in the back seat, a lady wrapped in fur
Her eyes burned through me, and mine stared back at her

And I recognized the moment
As I opened up her door
I knew I would regret it
I've been burned before

[Chorus]

And lord it's so hot when the chain reaction
Is set off with a kiss
And it's so tough when the satisfaction
Is greater than the risk
When you look in her eyes and you realize
This time you can't resist
It's chain lightnin'

And the magic of the moment
Exploded with desire
When the time is right the sparks ignite
And set the night on fire

[Chorus]

Chain lightnin'




5. ROUGH-HOUSIN'

Gettin' loose at the corner joint
That's all we had to do
I said baby, when you cross that floor
I sense trouble in the room

And we were rough housin'
Seemed the thing to do
We were rough housin'
Different points of view

Fancy free, lookin' hot and lean
Most any man's desire
I said baby, when you looked my way
You know you set my blood on fire

And we were rough housin'
On account of you
We were rough housin'
We were fightin' fools

Satisfaction guaranteed
That's the kind of man I am
I said baby, won't you pardon me
But I hope you'll understand

'Cause we'll be rough housin'
Seemed the thing to do
We'll be rough housin'
Different points of view
Yeah, we'll be rough housin'
On account of you
We'll be rough housin'
We were fightin' fools

Rough housin', rough housin'
We'll be rough housin'
Rough housin', rough housin', rough housin'
We'll be rough housin'
Rough housin', rough housin', rough housin',
We'll be rough housin'




6. YOU KEEP RUNNIN' AWAY

I hear your high-heels clickin' down the boulevard
You got your suitcase in hand, guess you're takin' it hard
You swear you'll never trust another man
Ah, but I know that you will, it's just a question of when

So open up your eyes to the light
You've been far too alone for too many nights, oh
Someday, someway, somewhere, love is gonna find you
Somehow, someone is gonna beg you to stay
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away

I hear it whispered in the neighborhood
At one time you were the best, it was just understood
Then someone came and took you for a fool
The word is out on the street that love is looking for you

So open up your eyes to the light
You've been far too alone for too many nights, oh
Someday, someway, somewhere, love is gonna find you
Somehow, somewhere, don't look now, I'm comin' up behind you
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away




So don't be fooled, you got me comin'
I ain't no fool, you keep me runnin'
And I don't know why
No, I don't know why
So open up, don't be afraid, baby
Is there someone standin' in our way
Won't you tell me why
Don't you tell me goodbye, oh

Someday, someway, somewhere, love is gonna find you
Somehow, someone is gonna beg you to stay, baby
Somehow, somewhere, don't look now, I'm comin' up behind you
But you keep runnin', you keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin' away
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin' away
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin' away
But you keep on runnin', you keep runnin' away




7. BREAKIN' LOOSE

It was the typical blues, it was more bad news
I was walkin' down a dirty street
Saw a man, I knew some years before
On the corner where the losers meet
He had rags on his back, as a matter of fact
Had a cold look on his face
He was standin' in line, groanin' words to the kind
As I passed I could hear him say, he said......

Don't live your life by the dollar sign
Live life to the limit, that's the bottom line
No guarantees what tomorrow will bring
Be the best at what you are, it's all a little insane>

Breakin' loose, breakin' the chain
You never know what the future will bring
Breakin' loose, breakin' the spell
I tried a part, now I'm playin' it well

Professional man, had the world in his hands
He arrived in the finest cars
He posted up his lifetime success
Every night at his favorite bar
He got off the track, he never looked back
He's an upper class renegade
Now he ain't got a dime, just his peace of mind
And he knows that he's got it made

Breakin' loose, breakin' the chain
You never know what the future will bring
Breakin' loose, breakin' the spell
I tried a part, now I'm playin' it well
Breakin' loose, emotional bruise
That's enough, It's time to go through
Breakin' loose, cut the line
It don't matter what your money can buy

Breakin' loose, breakin' the chain
You never know what the future will bring
Breakin' loose, breakin' the spell
I tried a part, now I'm playin' it well
Breakin' loose, emotional bruise
The house on the hill, in a financial noose
Breakin' loose, cut the line
It don't matter what your money can buy
