1. ANYTHING YOU WANT, YOU GOT IT

Well I'm ready to rock, and my temperature's hot, baby
I said I'm ready to go, ain't never gonna stop
But can you feel the beat girl, can never get enough of that
Ooh, anything you want, you got it, you know that I...
I ain't gonna mess around, and I'll never put you down
So if you want it, yeah, anything you want, you got it, look out

The place is gonna shake now, girl can you feel the thunder
I'm shootin' from the hip girl, you better run for cover
But if you wanna take a chance, just tell me and I'll know what to do
Ooh, anthing you want, you got it
I ain't gonna mess around, and I ain't gonna put you down, no
If you want it, yeah, anything you want, you got it
That's right, I say you want it, yeah, anything you want, you got it

Do you want it, yeah
Baby do you want it, yeah
Do you want it, yeah, you got it

Now given half a chance girl, we'll take it all the way
We're reaching for the top, and force a power play
We're gonna rock tonight, can never get enough of that
I said ooh, anything you want, you got it, you know that I...
I ain't gonna mess around, and I ain't gonna put you down
So if you want it, yeah, anything you want, you got it
Girl if want it, yeah, anything you want, you got it
So do you want it, yeah
Well baby, do you want it, yeah
Oh girl, do you want it, yeah, alright




2. FUTURE TENSE

Each moment's just a reflex
Response is just a motion
The pressure never ends baby
I hope it don't drive me crazy
I don't wanna be a poor boy
It don't help to say gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
I ain't foolin' myself now
All I know is what I feel

I know I don't like it
You can't disagree
Come on, say it'll be alright
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, gone too far
Future tense, a world apart
Future tense, more than a feeling in my heart
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I feel a little unbalanced
Between the pros and the con men
I try for satisfaction
You always let it slide
Every day is like the last day
Whatever happened to 50, 50, 50, 50
I don't have a solution
All I know is what I feel baby

I heard about the good life
I'd like to give it a try
They say it's gonna be alright
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, is what I feel
Future tense, is what I see
Future tense, as much for you as it is for me
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah)

If you don't like somebody
Say "leave me alone"
It's just like a bad time
You have to make good on your own

We're racing through time now
It's all hit and run
You say it's gonna be alright
I say yeah, yeah, yeah

Future tense, we've gone too far
Future tense, a world apart
Future tense, more than a feelin' in my heart
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh no (yeah, yeah, yeah)
No (yeah), no (yeah), no (yeah), oh no




3. CRASH AND BURN

They call it the burnout factor, and only the good die young
Somebody's gonna take their life, just tryin' to have some fun
The paper's gonna say we're crazy, no matter what they say, yeah
You know I'm gonna rock all night, gonna rock all night and day

Whenever they quote you man, you'll be misunderstood
They're never gonna get it right, or tell it the way they should
Maybe we move too fast to put it all in a song
And if we keep pushin' ourselves we won't be around too long
If you wanna try it

Crash and burn, crash and burn
Crash and burn, crash and burn all night long

Some people like to take it easy and flow without a sound
Others like to play for keeps and spread themselves around
I don't wanna say it's right, but if that's where you wanna be
Life's too short to miss out on what you wanna see
If you wanna try it

Crash and burn, crash and burn
Crash and burn, crash and burn all night long

Come on now, honey, don't tell me the way I ought to be
You know I don't need nobody talkin' back to me
Hey, I'm gonna live my life the way I think I should
You know I wouldn't change a thing, even if I could
I tell it like it is

Crash and burn, crash and burn
Crash and burn, crash and burn
Baby, crash and burn
I said crash and burn
I said crash and burn




4. BEFORE THE DAWN

Lori, Laura, Lori, Lorelei
Sunshine in the night
You're makin' everything worthwhile
You know I need your love
Pretty lady, help me now
But do you love me
I got to know, I've got to know now

Oh, long ago I had a lady
She looked alot like you
She lied to my face, yeah, such a disgrace
I had to leave, couldn't play the fool
Here I am again in love, baby
I've been this way before
I need your touch, need it so much
I need you, I need you, I do

Baby baby, be my friend
You know I'm gonna love you all I can
Before the dawn is breakin'
I'm gonna change your mind, yeah yeah
And you'll love me baby, come on love me
Come on Lorelei

If you spent a lifetime thinkin' 'bout the day
Would you know how many nights I've cried
I see your face in my mind, I've tried but I just can't find
A way, I need you bad
Babe, you're tearin' me apart
You know, you know I gave you
Every little piece of my heart

Before the dawn is breakin'
I'm gonna change your mind, yeah yeah
And you'll love me baby, come on love me
Come on Lorelei




5. WAITING ON A MIRACLE

A prima donna or a debutante, you say
A first offender, you had your chance, and you threw it away
So why don't you just get on your pony
And ride out somewhere where you can be lonely
All by yourself, instead of tellin' me

Here we are, and we never get very far
Things are never as you say they are
And you'd rather be somewhere else in time
Anywhere, well you don't mind

The legal tender was the motive for your shame
You knew the truth, but never took the blame, you knew it was wrong
But never one to open your heart
You held it inside till it tore you apart
And you couldn't go on, and now you're tellin' me

Here we are, and we never get very far
Things are never as you say they are
And you'd rather be somewhere else in time
Anywhere, well you don't mind
Waiting on a miracle, waiting on a miracle
Waiting on a miracle, wasting all your time

Under pressure till it got the best of you
False images, silhouettes, the old and the new
Nothing ventured, there's nothing gained
You take your chance, it may never come again
Then throw it away, and don't go tellin' me

Here we are, and we never get very far
Things are never as you say they are
And I'd rather be somewhere else in time
Anywhere, well I don't mind
Waiting on a miracle, waiting on a miracle
Waiting on a miracle, wasting all your time

It's alright, right right, we're gonna shine all night long
It's alright, we're right right, we're gonna shine all night long
It's alright, we're right right, we're gonna shine all night long




6. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Always so keen, in a big black fleur de lys
Had too much competition, in a limousine
Everybody got to him, and he finally had to make a show
And no one could believe him, and he still doesn't know

Girl you fill me up, until I've had enough
Girl you fill me up, can't you see that
You're my girl, and enough is enough
Baby, you're my girl, and enough is enough

So we went down through the streets, and we never even saw a fight
We had one look corner to corner, and we called it a night
So I said we best get ready, cause we really didn't wanna phone
He said, I must be some kind of a fool girl, are you puttin' me on

You fill me up, until I get enough
Oh girl you fill me up, can't you see that
You're my girl, and enough is enough
Baby, you're my girl, and enough is enough

You're my girl, and enough is enough
Baby, you're my girl, and enough is enough

So we went on through the gate, and it sure enough caused a scene
He said, one chance to make it on the silver screen
So we worked all day and night, tryin' to make it to the 4 state line
He said, baby you can stay tomorrow, we can have us a time

Oh girl you fill me up, until I've had enough
Oh girl you fill me up, can't you see that
You're my girl, and enough is enough
Baby, you're my girl, and enough is enough
You're my girl, enough is enough
Baby, you're my girl, and enough is enough




7. IF YOU SEE KAY

Well the first thing I remember, was the way she smiled
And the way she looked at me, drivin' me wild
She was dressed to kill in her five inch heels, her painted
on satin pants
She had the look of need, like, give it to me, I decided I
should take a chance

If you see Kay, tell her I want her
If you see Kay, tell her I need her
If you see Kay, tell her I want her now

Her legs were long shapely, I could see her love was hot
And when it came together, she'd give you all she's got
She had the walk of a woman on fire, her eyes undressed
my mind and soul
I woulda gladly bet my last ten buck, in love she'd lose
control

If you see Kay, tell her I want her
If you see Kay, tell her I need her
If you see Kay, tell her I want her now

I had her in my dreams, three times every night
Her love was so complete, her love was warm and right
When I wake up in the morning, with this achin' in my
heart
You can bet the need I'm feelin', is only just a start
I felt the pressure risin', when I looked where she had been

By the time I gave up hope, she'd probably fall in love
again

If you see Kay, tell her I want her
If you see Kay, tell her I need her
If you see Kay, tell her I want her now
If you see Kay (if you see Kay), tell her I need her
If you see Kay, tell her I need her
If you see Kay, tell her I want her now
If you see Kay, tell her I want her
If you see Kay, tell her I need her
If you see Kay, tell her I want her now




8. JUST BETWEEN YOU AND ME

Time and time again I see
A love that seemed strong, was not meant to be
Broken hearts don't always mend
Left too unsure to try love again

Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you and me
Always I know our love will be
Just between you and me

Lovers often seem to say
Hearts can be blind to love gone astray
Always it's the same old song
Someone's been hurt by a love that's gone wrong

Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you and me
Always I know our love will be
Just between you,
Just between you and me

Words are sometimes hard to find
The silence can be so unkind
You always help me find my way
The love that we share grows stronger each day

Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you and me
Always I know our love will be
Seulement entre toi et moi
Means that our love will always be
Just between you and me
Baby I know our love will be
Just between you,
Just between you and me




9. SIGN OF THE GIPSY QUEEN

Lightning smokes on the hillrise
Brought the man with the warning light
Shouting loud ";you had better fly";
While the darkness can help you hide
Trouble's comin' without control
No one's stayin' that's got a hope
Hurricane at the very least
In the words of the gypsy queen

Sign of the gypsy queen
Pack your things and leave
Word of a woman who knows
Take all your gold and you go

Get my saddle and tie it on
Western wind who is fast and strong
Jump on back, he's good and long
We'll resist till we reach the dawn
Running seems like the best offense
Staying just don't make any sense
No one could ever stop it now
Show the cards of the gypsy town

Sign of the gypsy queen
Pack your things and leave
Word of a woman who knows
Take all your gold and you go

Shadows movin' without a sound
>From the hold of the sleepless town
Evil seems to be everywhere
Heed the spirit that brought despair
Trouble's comin' without control
No one's stayin' that's got a hope
Hurricane at the very least
In the words of the gypsy queen

Sign of the gypsy queen
Pack your things and leave
Word of a woman who knows
Take all your gold and you go
Sign of the gypsy queen
Pack your things and leave
Word of a woman who knows
Take all your gold and you go
Sign of the gypsy queen
Pack your things and leave
Word of a woman who knows
Take all your gold and you go




10. 21ST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN

Cat's foot, iron claw
Neuro surgeons scream for more
At paranoia's poison door
21st century schizoid man

Blood rack, barbed wire
Politician's funeral pyre
Innocence raped with napalm fire
21st century schizoid man

Dead sea, blind man's greed
Poet's starving children bleed
Nothing he's got, he really needs
21st century schizoid man

15. YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A LADY

Could have been alright, could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
I could have been alright, I could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady

They all need you, to make love to
When you awake, you find them on the bed, lyin' beside you
They all love you, you're a good girl
And I ain't surprised, when you realize, just where you're goin' to

It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight

If I told you, where you're goin' to
You'd laugh in my face, say I'm out of place, mind your business
And they all want you, to make love to
It's ashame, the fate of the game, the way it delights you

You could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
You could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
It could have been alright, you could have been here tonight
Could have been sweet as wine, you could have been a lady
