My Kinda Woman
Written by russ ballard, ©1983
Found on your move and the very best of america.

I've been in love, girl, so many times before
They'd love me and leave me, I thought I knew the score
I'd fall in love no more
I was walking in shadows then, my life a lonely road
I was walking to nowhere, with a heavy loaded heart
To laugh I played the part

(do, do, do ... ) then came that magic day
I saw you as you walked my way
Here she comes, my kinda woman
Here she comes, my kinda woman
Yeah, you're my kinda woman
And I can't help but tell you that you are (you are)
Yes, you know you are
Girl, you know you are (yes you are, you know you are, you know you are)

The longer together then, the more we fell in love
No makin' or breakin' up, now I know I found real love
And I can't get enough (oo, I love you, I really love you)
So good to be winnin' now, I never thought I'd do
You got me spinnin', honey it's all down to you
You're there to see me through (oo, I love you, I really love you, yes I love you)

(do, do, do ... ) and from just one kiss
Who would believe that it would be like this
Here she comes, my kinda woman
Here she comes, my kinda woman
Yeah, you're my kinda woman
And I can't help but tell you that you are (you are)
Yes, you know you are
Girl, you know you are (yes you are, you know you are, you know you are)

My kinda woman I know that this is really love
There'll be no breakin' up, oh no
Here she comes, my kinda woman
Here she comes, my kinda woman
Yeah, you're my kinda woman
And I can't help but tell you that you are (you are)
Yes, you know you are
Girl, you know you are (yes you are, you know you are)
Oh, yes you areback to top
She's a Runaway
Written by russ ballard, ©1983
Found on your move, the very best of america, and highway.

Yesterday she stood here with me
I kissed her mouth, I had her in my hands
That kind of love, it could last forever
And together we made our plans

And then I woke up today
There on the table her letter lay
Tellin' me she's goin' away

Runaway, boy have you seen a
Girl like an angel runnin' in the night
She's run away, boy if you see her
I'm beggin' you to stop her on sight

If you see her tonight then stop her on sight
She's a runaway, a runaway
And why she'd leave I still can't believe
That she would run away, run away
Run away, run away
She's a runaway

I walked the streets through the heart of the city
Go to the places where she might be
I see her friends they say it's a pity
I get the same thing from everyone that I see

I'll keep searchin' if it's gotta be
And when I find her I'll make her see
No other man could love her like me

Runaway, boy have you seen a
Girl like an angel runnin' in the night
She's run away, boy if you see her
I'm beggin' you to stop her on sight

If you see her tonight then stop her on sight
She's a runaway, a runaway
And why she'd leave I still can't believe
That she would run away, run away
Run away, run away
She's a runaway

Run away, run away
If you see her tonight then stop her on sight
She's a runaway, a runaway
And why she'd leave I still can't believe
That she would run away, run away

If you see her tonight then stop her on sight
She's a runaway, a runaway
And why she'd leave I still can't believe
That she would run away, run away ...back to top
Cast the Spirit
Written by russ ballard, ©1983
Found on your move, ventura highway and other favorites, and the very best of america.

When you feel down and you've nobody to turn to
When you feel you're about to give up
The sun goes down and darkness surrounds you
And it's runnin' dry in your lovin' cup

Cast the spirit, cast it out
If it's in your body, then let it out
Put out the fire, let it cool down
If it's in your tears, then let it drown

Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo
Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo

You can't ignore the feeling inside you
In your mind you're without a friend
The spirit is there, it's in every doorway
You say to yourself, will it ever end

Cast the spirit, cast it out
If it's in your body, then let it out
Put out the fire, let it cool down
If it's in your tears, then let it drown

Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo
Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo

When you feel down and have nobody to turn to
You say to yourself, why can't it be
The sun goes down and darkness surrounds you
You feel you want to be free

Cast the spirit, cast it out
If it's in your body, then let it out
Put out the fire, let it cool down
If it's in your tears, then let it drown

Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo
Oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo, oo

Cast the spirit
Cast the spirit

Love's Worn Out Again
Written by gerry beckley and bill mumy, ©1983
Found on your move.

Like you said, you'd never get used to it
But it's lost that old surprise
Time comes and goes so quiet now
Leaves emptiness behind our eyes
Oh, darling, if I could spare us
From an hour of the pain
Like you said, you'd never get used to it
But love's worn out again

Winter's here, bring the blankets out
To cover up the cold
I'm dreamin' of the good night's sleep
Like I used to know in days of old
You told me you felt all alone
But you did not tell me when
Like you said, you'd never get used to it
But love's worn out again

Love's worn out again, darling
It's moved around the bend, darling
There's no telling when
We'll feel it again

Oh, maybe I can't see what's plainly in my view
Oh, I wish I was a better man, maybe it's just you
But there's something goin' on here
Like a wound that will not mend
Like you said, you'd never get used to it
But love's worn out again

Love's worn out again, darling
It's moved around the bend, darling
There's no telling when
We'll feel it again

Love's worn out again, darling
It's moved around the bend, darling
There's no telling when
We'll feel it again

Love's worn out again, darling
It's moved around the bend, darling
There's no telling when
We'll feel it again ...back to top
The Border
Written by russ ballard and dewey bunnell, ©1983
Found on your move, america in concert (85), ventura highway and other favorites,
the very best of america, encore: more greatest hits, premium gold collection,
centenary collection, and highway

You must be lost in a faraway land
I searched forever your footprints in the sand
I feel you need me, I have to answer
That desperate call that I do not understand

A burning bridge, a lonely highway
Another dark night thinking alone
What could’ve happened, am I just dreaming
It doesn’t matter but there’s one thing that I know

If I could make it to the border
If I could make it to the coast
If I could make it to the border
I’d be in the arms of the girl I love the most

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border

So on and on I keep on running
To make the border before the light
Just one more river, then I can make it
Again you’ll be in my arms tonight

If I could make it to the border
If I could make it to the coast
If I could make it to the border
I’d be in the arms of the girl I love the most

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border

If I could make it to the border
If I could make it to the coast
If I could make it to the border
I’d be in the arms of the girl I love the most

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Make it to the border ...back to top
Your Move
I don't understand it 'cause you won't say yes
But you don't say no
Sayin' no we shouldn't you keep holdin' out
But you don't let go

To sell you things that you ain't buying

It's your move (your move)

Make your move (your move)
Or we can't go on
Till (ah) you understand
It's all in your hands

You're giving me the business with that old come on
But you don't come across
You get me so excited don't you know you're such a tease
When I think you're gettin' hot, you're not
(Oo) So what's the problem, what's wrong
This kiss and miss you know it can't go on

It's your move (your move)
I played all of mine
Time (ah) is running out
Make your move (your move)
Or we can't go on
Till (ah) you understand

(Know it can't go on) Go on

I'm givin' up on trying now it's (your move)
Girl, if you ain't buyin' now it's (your move)
I gave it all I got now it's (your move)
I thought you were hot but you're not so it's (your move, your move, your move)

It's your move (your move, ah)

Or we can't go on

Honey
Written by russ ballard, ©1983
Found on your move, premium gold collection, and centenary collection.

Honey, I wish you were here
To brighten my lonely nights
How long I've waited
To hold you in my arms again

Honey, you know I'm so scared
Scared that you might not come back
One day without you
Is one day too long for me
Wish you could see
The love in the heart of me

Honey, I really miss you
Honey, I need to kiss you
Honey, I wanna hold you
Honey, have I told you
I really need you now
I really need you now

Honey, you know you think like me
Now I pray every day
I'll do anything
If there's a chance you'll stay

Your perfume is still in my room
Your pillow it's left where you lay
Your picture is standing
Inside the frame I made
It seems so sad
To lose the love we had

Honey, I really miss you
Honey, I need to kiss you
Honey, I wanna hold you
Honey, have I told you
I really need you now
I really need you now

Honey, I've waited for only one line
To let me know how you are
I need to be with you
I'd run to your side, however near or far
Girl, I need you

Honey, honey
Honey, honey
Honey, I really miss you
Honey, I need to kiss you
Honey, don't you know it
Honey, don't I show it
I really need you now
I really need you now
I really need you now
I really need you now
I really need you now
I really need you nowback to top
My Dear
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1983
Found on your move, premium gold collection, centenary collection, and highway.

Here in the dawn
As I walk through this dream
As I have done since ages now gone
Shall I read you the letter
They sent postmarked from somewhere out here
It's in latin, I think, I don't know
Can you help me, my dear
Please, can you help me, my dear

Near to their bed (they never sleep)
They sit sipping their tea, watch the sea
Move the sand through their heads (sit in their chairs by the bay)
Did I show you the marks on the wall
Left by captains now dead (house out on the cove)
They fell fighting for peace in their lives
Or so it is said (still nobody seems to be here)
Please, can you help me, my dear
Please, can you help me, my dear

You can't miss it
A blue forest on a green sky
You must risk it
Don't ignore us if you want us to
If we want us to survive

Where will I be (can't you help me to find my way)
After watching them walking the pier
At the mouth of the sea (I've been lost for so long)
They're in love with the news
And don't show if they're living in fear (still nobody seems to be here)
They eat ice cream alone
Watch the waves at the end of the pier (ah, nobody seems to hear)
Please, can you help me, my dear
Please, can you help me, my dearback to top
Tonight Is for Dreamers
Written by russ ballard, ©1983
Found on your move.

Here I am, there you are
Who would believe we could come this far
We're beneath this magic moon
The ocean plays it's own sweet tune
The summer breeze it whispers low
It tells us something we both know

Tonight is for dreamers
Tonight someone up there has seen us
How we feel for each other
There could be no other
So he sent these words from above
Tonight is for falling in love
Oo, ah

(oo, la, la ... ) tonight there's magic in the air
Look around, it's everywhere
Hear the sand birds bill and coo
Actin' like they know it too
Hear the wind pass through the trees
Like it's tellin' everyone it sees

Tonight is for dreamers
Tonight someone up there has seen us
How we feel for each other (ah)
There could be no other
So he sent these words from above
Tonight is for falling in love

There can't have ever been such a night
I don't want it to end
With you in my arms girl I feel so high
Hell, I don't ever want to descend

Tonight is for dreamers
Tonight someone up there has seen us
How we feel for each other (ah)
There could be no other
So he sent these words from above
(I love you)

Tonight is for dreamers
Tonight someone up there has seen us
And I can't hold you enough (oo)

Tonight is for dreamers
Tonight someone up there has seen us
He sent these words from above
Tonight is for falling in loveback to top
Don't Let Me Be Lonely
Written by russ ballard, ©1983
Found on your move.

Here we are again
Two lovers lost in a maze
So many roads we could go down
So many ways we could go wrong

You think we should part
Both go our own separate ways
Oh, girl why can't (oo) we work it out
Can't you hear what my heart says (ah)

Don't let me be lonely
Don't let me be lonely tonight
That wouldn't be right
Now that I (ah) need you more than ever

Here we are tonight
Both starring in the same play
But I'm the one (oo) who plays the fool
I've only one line to say (ah)

Don't let me be lonely
Don't let me be lonely tonight
That wouldn't be right
Now that I (ah) need you more than ever

Girl, what will I be
If you walk away from me
How can I make you stay (ah)

Don't let me be lonely
Don't let me be lonely tonight
That wouldn't be right
Now that I need you more than everback to top
