Lyrics

1. ON AND ON

As time goes on,
I feel the morning light it seems,
Seems like I've been here far too long.
Every time I feel this way,
Thinking of you always makes me stay.

[Chorus:]

So it goes on and on and on,
Never saying how I feel
It goes on and on and on
Why won't I heal??
Said it goes on and on and on,
Like a violent summer rain
It goes on and on and on,
Can you feel my pain??

Things we said that night are gone,
Now I wish I could have told you more.
But sometimes words seem hard to find,
Cause now I've left myself behind

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]

Every night's the same
I have myself to blame
Cursing out, and callin' out to me
Well tell myself, it took more tears it seems
I feel the pain, coming back to me again

[Solo]

[Chorus] (x2)




2. ANGEL

When I'm upside down
You turn me right side up
By the simple words you say

When I'm south of you,
Well your north of me
And I know your here to stay

Well your fingers walk
And your body talks to me
Sweetly night and day

My life was meaningless
Until we kissed
May you never go away

Angel, I figured it out you've got to be an
Angel, you must have come down to earth to tell me

[Chorus]

There will be no tears in heaven
Love's a gift that we've been given
Baby when I see you shine
I thank the lord that you are mine
Heavens here on earth together
May it always last forever
Angel sometimes I
Swear that you have wings and you can fly

When I'm on my own
Well your in my head
And in everything I do

Well your protecting me
Watching over me
I can always count on you

Angel, I figured it out you've got to be an
Angel, you must have come down to earth to tell me

[Repeat Chorus x1]

Fly, fly over me
Fly, fly under me
Fly, fly close to me
Fly, fly, fly to me

Angel, I figured it out you've got to be an
Angel, you must have come down to earth to tell me

[Repeat Chorus x1]

...Angel sometimes I swear that you have wings and you can fly




3. ROCK AND ROLLERS

Rollin' down the highway,
I got a feeling when the clock strikes nine
We're gonna have ourselves, yeah, a real good time.
We're feeling more excitement,
I got my tickets in my hand
We're gonna keep on rockin' to the beat of the band
So play it for me..........yeah!!!

The show is just beginning,
and the lights have all gone down
The curtain's ready to rise, the spots are bright in our Eyes
They brought down the whole house,
And they walked out on the stage
They're coming on with a song, that's so hot and so loud!
So play it for me.......yeah!!!

(Chorus:]

Rock & Rollers, we're gonna see ya tonite

4. MARINER

I'm an old man on the sea,
Sailed the straits alone, my ship and me.
Wait each day for her last call,
The night will come and she will take it all

Take me where the winds have blown,
On an endless voyage home,
Where the albatross has flown.

Swabbed the decks both near and far,
Around the cape, my mate, and old Jack Tar.
Fought with Nelson side by side,
He's just a man with wits and some time to bide.

Take me where the winds have blown,
On an endless voyage home,
Where the albatross has flown.

La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.
La, la-la, la, la, la, la-la.

Just an old man on the sea,
Sailed the straights alone my ship and me
Wait each day for her last call,
Night will come and she will take it all.

Take me where the winds have blown,
On an endless voyage home,
Where the albatross has flown.




5. ANYWAY YOU WANT IT

Come on, makes no difference what you like.
Come on, whatever turns you on is all right
Gonna have some fun tonite.

[Chorus:]

Anyway, anyway you want it,
You've got what everyone needs.
Anyway, anyway you want it,
A chance to do what you please.

Come on, if you're feeling good then stomp on your feet.
Come on, clap you hands and stand up and scream.
Throw you arms to the sky.

[Chorus]

Anyway, anyway you want it,
You've got what everyone needs.
Anyway, anyway you want it,
A chance to do what you please.

[Solo]

[Chorus]

Anyway, anyway you want it,
You've got what everyone needs.
Anyway, anyway you want it,
A chance to do what you please.
Anyway, anyway you want it,
Make it clear what you say.
Anyway, anyway you want it,
Anytime, anyday.




6. MIRRORS

Magic swords with many lords for treasures that abound me.
Battle cries that fill the skies with pain.
Images I see, make my destiny.
Reflecting back to me, that which is to be.

At first I smelt the blood I felt for warriors that I've slain.
Feeling more the scars of war and pain.
Images I see, make my destiny.
Reflecting back to me, that which is to be.

[Solo]

Setting sights through horror nights,
For ships that sail the sea.
So I yearn, the dawns returning fleet.
Images I see, make my destiny
Images I see, make my destiny
Reflecting back to me, that which is to be.




7. FEELIN'RIGHT

Getting ready to scream and roar,
With a chug and a thirst for more.
Telling tales of abuse,
From an old familiar juice.
Tell 'em words of sin,
From a bottle of Gin.

Drink a toast to a place we can hide,
Drowning tomorrows everything is alright
So I sit here and drink
To the brink of a nod and a wink.
Keeps me warm in the cold,
Sippin' from my bowl.

[Chorus:]

Feelin' right tonite, yeah, each and every night.
Feelin' right, alright, oh happy days.
Feelin' good today, yeah each and every day
Get to feelin' those halcyon, halcyon days.

[Solo]

[Repeat Chorus]

Getting ready to scream and roar,
With a chug and a thirst for more.
Be things as they may
We need to drink to today
We gonna have our way,
No matter what the say.




8. FEELINGS

Everyday I try to change my ways,
Still I find I'm calling your name.
Try to stop myself right from the very start,
But to be in love has torn me apart.

I've made it clear I want you near,
That constant fear that you might leave me standing here.
Can't help myself for this torturing inside,
Possessed by love, is the pain I cannot hide.

[Chorus:]

Feelings, reach out and hold me
Hold me close by your side.
So you see you've become a part of me
A part that helps me to live and breathe.
Now you've gone I need you more and more each day
A selfish need that won't go away

You took my life and the love I've stored,
You took it all and left me nothing but wanting more.
Can't help myself from this torturing inside,
Possessed by love is the pain I cannot hide.

[Chorus:]

Feelings, reach out and hold me
Hold me close by your side
Feelings, reach out and hold me
Hold me close by your side
Feelings, feelings, feelings, feelings, feelings
Feelings, feelings, feelings, feelings
Feelings, reach out and hold me
Hold me close by your side

And now I realize.........
The meaning of good-byes.




9. TOWER

Wind is raw, the air is stale
On this cold winter's night
Sent alone to tell a tale
From the land of Delmite
Journey starts at the edge of town
With the stars as my guide
There's no one here but my empty thoughts
And the sword by my side

[Chorus:]

Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn
Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn

Sun is leaving the darkened clouds,
As it slips past the hills
Slow moon climbs way up in the sky,
Keeps the heavens so still
Come this far, though I know not why
Said the things I've been told
Greedy village that has sent me here
For its own pot of gold

[Chorus:]

Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn
Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn

Everywhere the wind did sail,
The castle lies just ahead
Blade is drawn, still I carry on
On my brow a cold sweat.
As I look there upon the hill,
There it stands so tall
Said that stone structured wall of gold,
Will heed the voice of us all.

[Chorus:]

Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn
Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn

Just a light, from a tower
Burning on from dusk to dawn
Just a light, from a tower
Stands the victor and his gold,
And that's all!!!




10. THAT MAGIC TOUCH

It's Friday and late after hours,
And still I haven't a date.
Waiting by the moon,
Sipping Whiskey sours.
I'll think I'll wait here 'till noon.
It really could be days,
'Til I find some flowers,
So I'll send you a bouquet.

[Chorus 1:]

Uptown, run around, hear the sound, of the city streets below,
And people in a rush everywhere.
No rain, sugar cane, just a grain,
In my champagne glass, you know.
You put that magic touch in the air.

So they say, it's closing time again,
Funny how time passes,
Through a bottle of Champagne.
The only sound I hear, is that of rattling glasses,
And people laughing in my ear.
You've taken far too much, since you left for Paris,
You've got that magic touch.

[Chorus 2:]

Uptown, run around, hear the sound, of the city streets below,
And the people rush everywhere.
No rain, sugar cane, just a grain,
In my Champagne glass, you know.
You put that magic touch in the air.
See those people in a rush,
But you've got that magic touch.
(Repeat twice)

[Repeat Chorus 1 'til fade]




11. BIG BOY

Well loose lady Lucy was leanin' with her hips on the wall.
Laughin' with a drink cause she knows that she's the cause Of it all.
Well never needs a mirror, just moves,
And that'll start 'em to brawl.
Roving with her eyes thru Vogue,
Or maybe was it McCall?
So let her come closer,
Give her all that she needs.

She's looking for a man or anyone who'll give her a chance,
Then shuffles to the bar and waits for someone hot to romance.
And when the time is right she'll send you deeper into a Trance,
With a smile she'll drive you wild all she needs is just a bit of a glance.
So let her come closer,
Give her all that she needs.

[Chorus:]

Hey Big Boy!! Let's do it again.
Hey Big Boy!! Let's do it again

She was standing by the pier,
Waiting for her dear friend Tom.
When along came a man,
Who she only knew as Sam with a gun.
Well he found her there with Tom,
And he did only thing he could do.
So he gave them both a taste,
And with that he left in haste for some brew.
(Yes he did)
So let her come closer,
Give her all that she needs.

[Chorus:]

Hey Big Boy!! Let's do it again.
Hey Big Boy!! Let's do it again.
Hey Big Boy!! Let's do it again.
Hey Big Boy!! Let's do it again.




12. SHE'S A MOVER

Hey lady your lookin' like your scared,
I don't want to hold you down,
I just want to hold you close tonite.
You know, you've been a part of me.
Your leaving me here like this,
With just the memory of the warmth of your kiss.

[Chorus:]

She's a mover, so come closer.
She's a mover, but it's over.
Hey lady, I never saw you like this,
You're movin' away from me.
Don't you see that I've been waitin' for you?
Don't go spinning my head around.
Don't leave me here alone,
Now that you've taken all the love that I own.

[Chorus:]

She's a mover, so come closer.
She's a mover, but it's over.

[Solo]

Hey lady, you're lookin' fine tonite,
Come a little bit closer to me.
Make it easy to feel the way you want me to feel
With you, it's not the same at all.
You're tellin' all those lies,
When all you really had to say was goodbye.

[Chorus:]

She's a mover, so come closer.
She's a mover, but it's over.
She's a mover, so come closer.
She's a mover, but it's over.




13. TELEPHONE EXCHANGE

I tried to call your number,
But there's just no answer.
Maybe there's no one there at all.
I wait to hear from you,
But it's just no use.
So I'll try again tomorrow.
Over again, as time passes by.

[Chorus:]

Telephone Exchange, you've got the same old line.
Telephone Exchange, just say hello or goodbye.
Don't keep me waiting by the phone.

It seems like all last evening,
The phone just kept on ringing.
I guess I'll try just a little bit longer.
And so I'll pay with time,
For this lonely crime,
Of wanting to hear you say hello.
Over again, as time passes by.

[Repeat Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus:]

Telephone Exchange, you've got the same old line.
Telephone Exchange, just say hello or goodbye
[Repeat Twice]
