Survival
Iíll survive you, I will survive you
Well, itís too late, I know, to change the way we go
From this day on I want to stay on
Now that Iíve started learning
And the tides started turning
Well, itís here I want to stay

Iíll let the moon announce my arrival
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival
Where do we go from here, where do we go from here

Iím alive here, I can survive dear
Though the weather might change
From the wind to the rain
Well, my heart remains the same

Iíll let the moon announce my arrival
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival
Where do we go from here, where do we go from here

Looked out on a sea of trouble
And I tried to stall for awhile
Itís so hard to answer every question
And itís hard to protect your heart anymore

Iíll let the moon announce my arrival (I am alive)
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival (but I wonder)
Where do we go from here

Iíll let the moon announce my arrival (I am alive)
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival (but I wonder)
Where do we go from here

Iíll let the moon announce my arrival (I am alive)
To every eye that cares to see
Just working on the art of survival (but I wonder)
Where do we go from here ...back to top
Might Be Your Love
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1980
Found on alibi.

Sometimes when you're there all alone
Someone will call you at home
You don't want to but pick up the phone

Might be your love
Might be your heart
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark

Someone who you thought would belong
Came passing, moved right along
You don't know why but something went wrong

Might be your love
Might be your heart
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark

Someone to hold you, someone to hold
Someone to hold you, someone to hold

Some girl who you watched at her desk
Came dancing on with her dress
And she looked up and wouldn't you guess

She might be your love
Might be your heart
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark

Might be your love (might be your love)
Might be your heart (might be your heart)
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark

(someone to hold you)
Might be your love (someone to hold)
Might be your heart (someone to hold you)
Might be your love (someone to hold)

Might be your love (might be your love)
Might be your heart (might be your heart)
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark

Might be your love (might be your love)
Might be your heart (might be your heart)
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark

Might be your love (might be your love)
Might be your heart (might be your heart)
Someone to hold you
All alone in the dark ...back to top
Catch That Train
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1980
Found on alibi.

Well, I'm drivin' onward
Through the pourin' rain
There's a ticket waitin'
I gotta catch that train

The yellow racin' dreamboat
On california air
Single engine cowboy
Out in county fair

So, oh baby, hurry here to me
Oh baby, come see me
Oh baby, let the hours flee
Oh baby, come see

The silver clouds in august
Lover's names on trees
Imagine running water
You wadin' in knee deep

So, oh baby, hurry here to me
Oh baby, come see me
Oh baby, let the hours flee
Oh baby, come see

There's a world waitin'
Just for you to unfold
How are you to know
If you don't see, if you don't see

Those yellow racin' dreamboats
On california air
There's a ticket waitin'
I guess I'll catch you there
I guess I'll catch you there

So, oh baby, hurry here to me
Oh baby, come see me
Oh baby, let the hours flee
Oh baby, come see

(if you don't come) oh baby, hurry here to me
Oh baby, come see me
(if you don't come) oh baby, let the hours flee
Oh baby, come see

(if you don't come) oh baby, hurry here to me
Oh baby, come see me
(if you don't come) oh baby, let the hours flee
Oh baby, come see

You Could've Been the One
Written by john batdorf and sue sheridan, ©1980
Found on alibi and ventura highway and other favorites.

There's a bright light that's shinin' in your face
You can't even see me at all
Oh, you look like an angel out of place
At this downtown devil's bar

Do you wanna dance girl
You said no thanks
And I watched you drift away
Well you had your chance

You could've been the one
Tonight you could've been the only one
For the rest of my life
I'll be dreamin' of you when this dance is done
Knowin' you could've been the one

If I come back here I might see you again
And maybe you'd say yes
But it's a losin' game I'm tryin' to win
And I can only guess

Do you have somebody (watchin')
Who watches you
As you let down your hair
By the light of the moon

You could've been the one
Tonight you could've been the only one
For the rest of my life
I'll be dreamin' of you when this dance is done
Knowin' you could've been the one
Knowin' you could've been the one

Where do you go when the night ends
Are you just a dream that fades into gray
Visions of you will not leave me alone
Why did you have to turn away

You could've been the one
Tonight you could've been the only one
For the rest of my life
I'll be dreamin' of you when this dance is done
Knowin' you could've been the one

Tonight you could've been the only one
For the rest of my life
I'll be dreamin' of you when this dance is done
Knowin' you could've been the one ...back to top
I Don't Believe in Miracles
Written by russ ballard, ©1980
Found on alibi.

I walk along the road and past your door
Then I remember things you said
I know in time we could've been so much more
But if you wanna come back home, go right ahead

But I don't believe in miracles
I don't believe in miracles
But I thought you might show your face
Or have the grace to tell me where you are

I believe I was your game, your ball (your ball)
If you tossed me up then I would fall
And so you've won again, ah, you win them all
But I believe I'd run to you, if you should call

But I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)
I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)
But I thought you might show your face
Or have the grace to tell me where you are (tell me where you are)

I believe that somewhere there's someone
Who's gonna light the way when things go wrong
The bullet that shot me down came from your gun
The words that turned me round were from your song

But I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)
I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)
But I thought you might show your face
Or have the grace to tell me where you are (tell me where you are)

But I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)
I don't believe in miracles (don't believe in miracles)
But I thought you might show your face
Or have the grace to tell me where you areback to top
I Do Believe in You
Written by richard page, john lang, steve george, and jerry manfredi, ©1979
Found on alibi.

They tried to catch us dancin' on the line
They say we took it way too far this time
They gave us no breaks here
But we made our own I swear

I do, I do believe in you
After all that we've been through
I do, I do believe in you
And everything that we do

We used to run with the dangerous crowd
Where the flame was hot and burnin' out
We knew we'd have to give
It hit us where we lived

I do, I do believe in you (I do believe in you)
After all that we've been through together
You took away my darkest nights (nights)
No one else could see the light

Runnin' blind day after day
Some things never wanna change, oh, oh
We knew we'd have to give
It hit us where we lived

I do, I do believe in you (I do believe in you)
After all that we've been through
You took away my darkest nights (nights)
No one else could see the light

I do, I do believe in you (I do believe in you)
After all that we've been through
You took away my darkest nights (nights)
No one else could see the light ...back to top
Hangover
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1980
Found on alibi.

Who's that knockin' on my door this mornin'
Can't they see I'm dead
There ain't nothin' left to do this mornin'
'cept to make it to my bed

I was out till all hours
Raisin' cain once again
I don't care about the hours
Only how much did I spend

'cause I got a hangover
I won't make it through the day
I got a hangover
So just leave me where I lay

I started slow after sundown
I tiptoed right up till ten
Then after while I went downtown
It was the beginning of my end

Now I got a hangover
I won't make it through the day
I got a hangover
So just leave me where I lay

Oh, how am I gonna stake my claim on the future
When I cannot lift my head
Oh, I ain't nothin' but a drunken loser
And my liver's overfed

'cause I got a hangover
I won't make it through the day
'cause I got a hangover
So just leave me where I lay

Now I got a hangover
I won't make it through the day
'cause I got a hangover
So just leave me where I lay
So just leave me where I layback to top
Right Back to Me
Wherever I go it's coming back to me
Whoever I've known they sent it back to me
I know the night will be all right
As long as your love keeps coming

Right back to me, right back to me
For all to see that our love is true

I put on a show, it's very clear to me
And when I am low I feel you're near to me
I know the night will be all right
As long as your love keeps coming

Right back to me, right back to me
For all to see that our love is true

I recall some years ago, when I truly was alone
Now at last all that is past
Now I'm never on my own.

I know my light will be shining bright
As long as your love keeps coming

Right back to me, right back to me
For all to see that our love is true ...back to top
Coastline
Written by gerry beckley, ©1980
Found on alibi.

I drive to the coastline
Looking for visual pleasures to catch my eye
The sun turns around hits me on the shoulder
I fly away

Due to the situation this morning
All in the world's ok
I head down sunset north to santa barbara
We sail away

I could live in the walls of a prison
Where the warm summer winds would never blow
Then again, think of what I'd be missing (as to the other side)
And how some do it I'll never know, I'll never know

I must have spent a lifetime as a sailor
Sailin' the ocean blue
But every single waterway leads to you
To you

I could live in the walls of a prison
Where the warm summer winds would never blow
Then again, think of what I'd be missing (as to the other side)
And how some do it I'll never know, I'll never know

I'm headin' out over an ocean of blue
The trailin' wake far behind
Won't turn me down
And it won't turn me around

I could live in the walls of a prison
Where the warm summer winds would never blow
Then again, think of what I'd be missing (as to the other side)
And how some do it I'll never know, I'll never knowback to top
Valentine
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1980
Found on alibi.

Well, she said all along, I'm her one
A little fingernail polish, chewin' gum
Her round the world heart made of platinum, that's right

She looks like a china doll baby, especially in white
A tropicana flower in the candlelight
She turned into a pumpkin pie, sweet kiss at midnight

She moves, oh so fine
She's like a perfect valentine
She's not one to fall in love
She's too high on the stars above at night

She wants to be your red-hot mama, all alone
She dances with the boys on the telephone
She makes a lotta noise in the quiet zone at night

Yeah, you talk about a party at the beach, ain't that grand
She just took a raincheck with another man
Who lay on the deck of his catamaran some night

She moves, oh so fine
She's like a perfect valentine
She's not one to fall in love
She's too high on the stars above at night

Well, I can't tell you much, but what I know (what I know)
You can't take her with you when it's time to go
'cause she knows where it's at with a romeo, you'll see

She moves, oh so fine
She's like a perfect valentine
She's not one to fall in love
She's too high on the stars above at night

She moves
Just like a perfect valentine
She's not one to fall in love
She's too high on the stars above at nightback to top
One in a Million
One night, one in a million
Twilight, lastin' us through tomorrow
Nothing can come between us
That's what I wanna do

Today, there will be no competition
I think today might be
A one in a million for me
I've seen the sun drop below my roof line
I really think it might
Be a one in a million delight
All of my dreams go with you tonight

We'll walk down the roads of our impatience
And if one has to fall
He won't be too proud to call
Some doors I've closed just to reopen
And then sometimes I find
Everything wrong's turned to right
All of my dreams go with you tonight

One night, one in a million
Twilight, lastin' us through tomorrow
Nothing can come between us
That's what I want for youback to top
