Burning Up
I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up for your love
I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up for your love

You let me down, turned me 'round, you messed around with my heart
What kind of woman with a smile on her face
Can tear your whole world apart, hey

I'm on fire, I feel it burnin' up, I'm on fire

I'm burnin' up, burnin' up, I'm burnin' up every night
I'm burnin' up, burnin' up, and burnin' up can feel so right

I see the smoke, I feel the heat, my life is going up in flames
How could you be so indiscrete, and still be so unashamed, hey

I'm on fire, I feel it burnin' up, I'm on fire

Hey you said you'd never leave me, you said we'd never be apart
You turned out to be a liar, and left me with a broken heart
Why did you do it babe, yeah

(Solo)

I'm on fire, I'm burnin' inside, I'm on fire, why did you do it baby

Ooh I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up for your love
Ooh I'm burnin' up, see I'm burnin' up, I'm burnin' up for your love

Watch me burn, see me burnin', 'cause my heart's on fire
Watch me burn, see me burnin' up for your love
Watch me burn, see me burnin' up for your love
Watch me burn...back to top
This Love
I know you're not just a pretty face, you've got style, you've got grace
But I do need to know you a little more

I've seen your picture as a little girl, before the woman in you uncurled
But I do need to show you a little more

This love will last us forever, this love is gonna stay true

I know you've got what it's gonna take
And you've got a heart and it won't break
But I do need to show you a little more

And I've got this feelin', it's so much like pain
You've got me reelin', but I still can't explain
I wanna show you, baby, just a little more

Chorus:
This love will last us forever, this love is gonna stay true
This love will keep us together, this love, it's long overdue

Yeah!

(Solo)

This child, this girl, this woman that I dream about
She knows that I know, this love I couldn't live without

Fame And Fortune
Sittin' in the back of a limousine, feelin' just like a king
All the girls come runnin' to you, you're the latest thing
Sittin' up there at the top of the charts, lookin' like Mr. Cool
You take all the money, steal their hearts, they'll come runnin' to you

Your fame and your fortune, look what it brought you
All your fame and your fortune, you better take a look around
With your fame and your fortune, careful who you talk to
Or the fame and your fortune, watch it all tumble down, yeah, oh listen now

Now you're lookin' for inspiration, somethin' to say
When you find that it don't come easy, you find them running away
You had it all in the palm of your hand, and let it slip away
You made it big, ooh so big, and then you threw it all away

All your fame and your fortune, look what it brought you
Fame and your fortune, hey you better take another look
At your fame and your fortune, it set you up, then it caught you
Fame and your fortune, surely gonna let you down, hey tell me now

(Solo)

All your fame and your fortune, look what it brought you
Take your fame and your fortune, wait and take a look around
For your fame and your fortune, who do you talk to
'Bout your fame and your fortune, as it all comes tumbling down

Fame and your fortune, fame and your fortune, yes all come tumbling down
Fame and your fortune, fame and your fortune, all comes tumbling down...back to top
That Girl
I've heard the rumours, I hear one every night
They say that you've been cheatin' on me, I know they're not right
They don't really know you, they just don't understand
I know you wouldn't do that, wouldn't be so underhand

Chorus:
And still they say, that girl, yeah the girl is playin' 'round again
That girl, yeah they say I oughta know

They say I haven't noticed, that you wanna be alone
And sometimes no one's there when I answer the phone
They say you tell me stories about the places you go
If there's somethin' you're not tellin' me, I've got the right to know

Yeah - chorus

I hear it every night, that girl, they say if I know what is good for me
Hey that girl, they say that I should let her go

My friends are tellin' stories, about your goings on
I just wanna talk to you, babe, I've got to know what's goin' on
They don't really know you, they just don't understand
I know you wouldn't do it, you wouldn't be so underhand

Yeah - chorus

Hear it every night
That girl, then they say it's for the company
That girl, I hear it everywhere I go
That girl, they say that I'm too blind to see
That girl, it seems she can't say no
That girl...back to top
Tell It Like It Is
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
You got me cornered, there's no getting out alive
So wait a minute, woman, I need to switch out that light
We're a bad match, babe, you never know what's good for you
There's somethin' not right, I'm gonna tell you what to do

For 24 hours, you been comin' on so strong
Baby, I'm gettin' nervous, and pretty soon I'm gonna prove you wrong

I've gotta tell it like it is - I know it's down to me
Can't go on like this - our love is history
I'm gonna burn this bridge - you just wait and see
Tell it like it is - uh huh, hey

Face to face, a day I will never forget
Well I was beggin' for your love, you said you're not ready yet
Hey we've come a long way, babe, there's nothin', nothin' I won't do
And well I warn you tonight, my love is hot, I'm comin' for you

For 24 hours, you've been puttin' me on
Maybe I'm gettin' nervous, and pretty soon I'm gonna prove you wrong

I've gotta tell it like it is - I know it's down to me
Can't go on like this - our love is history
I'm gonna burn this bridge - just you wait and see
I'm gonna tell it like it is - uh huh, hey

(Solo)

For 24 hours, you been comin' on so strong
Maybe I'm nervous, pretty soon I'm gonna prove you wrong

I'm gonna tell it like it is - I know it's down to me
I can't go on like this - watch your step, it's history
Gonna burn this bridge - you just wait and see
Tell it like it is - yeah uh huh

Tell it like it is - wait and see
Can't go on like this - our love is history
I'm gonna burn this bridge - I'm gonna burn you down
I'm gonna tell it like it is - I'm waitin', I'm waitin'

Tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it like it is
No, you know it's still down to me
I said tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it - tell it like it is
You're history

You've gotta tell it, tell it, tell it!back to top
Long Walk
I need a long walk, with someone who knows what to do
I need a long talk, I need a helping hand to pull me through
I need a tall drink, with somebody who cares, I need someone here for company
It's time to rethink and somehow find a way to put an end to this mystery

See I don't know, the pain won't go
And the hurt inside is getting so damn hard to hide

So now I pay the price, I wonder how much it's gonna take
I've gotta roll the dice, and try to take all this heartache

But I still don't know, the pain won't go
And the hurt inside is getting so damn hard to hide

I gotta work it out, 'cause my heart is still racing, racing away
Work it out, 'cause my heart is still breaking, hey

So now I'll take this long walk, I don't want anybody listenin'
'Cause I really wanna pour it out, and all went out without ever giving in

But I still don't know, the pain won't go
I'm still hurting inside and it's so damn hard to hide

You gotta help me work it out, 'cause my heart is still racing, racing away
Work it out, 'cause my heart, my heart is breaking away
I've gotta work this out, 'cause my heart is still racing away
Yeah, work it out, 'cause my heart, it's so much a part of me

Work it out - gotta work it out
My heart is still racing - and I'm wasting away
Work it out - I've gotta work it out...back to top
Hold On My Heart
I recall in '82, there was only me to talk to
I was in my lonely world, and then I found someone to walk to

I remember every second of every day, but there was something not right
And as day leads to night, over and over again

Well it seems so long ago, that there were two of us together
But it seems that love don't last, and now it's true of us forever

If only life would go the way that you want it to
Oh but the feeling inside, that I know I can't hide
Is starting all over again, and baby, you know

Chorus:
You got a hold on my heart, you got a hold on my heart
You know it gets stronger, the longer you keep us apart
You got a hold on my heart, a serious hold on my heart
I try to deny it, but baby, that's the hardest part

When I look back on those days, it's just a memory forever

If only life would go the way that you want it to
But when I get this feelin' inside, I know I can't hide
It's starting all over again

chorus repeats outback to top
Valerie
Valerie, ooh yeah

We were laughing, and hangin' 'round some hotel bar
And we were so young, and now I wonder where you are
'Cause that was years ago, but how was I to know we'd part
Don't wanna hear you say, you don't know me, Valerie

There is somethin', somethin' that you gotta know
And Valerie you were the first, though I never told you so
You were the main event, you didn't need to steal the show
I'm telling you, you don't know me

Valerie - do you remember me, when we were wild and free
Valerie - do you remember me - do you remember

I'm recalling all the crazy things we've done
Hey but when your folks found out, they said that we were way too young
That was way back when, maybe it will be again
Don't wanna hear you say, you don't know me

Valerie - do you remember me, when we were wild and free
Valerie - do you remember me - do you remember, yeah

(Solo)

Do you remember me - ooh yeah - when we were wild and free
Valerie - do you remember me - just tell me how you feel
Valerie - do you remember me, when we were wild and free
Yeah, Valerie - do you remember me - just tell me how you feel
Do you remember me - oh Valerie - when we were wild and free
Valerie - do you remember me, just tell me how you feel...back to top
When We Made Love
Standin' there, a shadow in the hall
I'm hopin' that it might be you, but it wasn't anyone at all
I can still remember the way things were
If I could only bring you back, then I wouldn't need to say a word

When we made love, it felt so strong, I remember
We were so much in love, where did our love go wrong

Remembering the things we used to say
The memories are drifting by, but the pain is here to stay
And it's no illusion, I'm a lock without a key
I'm only livin' half a life, without you here with me

When we made love, a love that felt so strong, I still remember
We were so deep in love, where did our love go wrong

(Solo)

I can feel every touch again, as real as it is crazy
And I kiss every kiss again, so tender they amaze me
I live through the end again, feeling like I'm dying
And then I touch my cheek, realize I'm crying

When we made love, a love so strong, and I remember
We were so deep in love, so tell me, where did our love go wrong
When we made love, we belong together
It's those nights I'm dreaming of, they'll stay with me, they'll last forever
When we made loveback to top
If I'm Sleeping
I saw you 'cross the crowded room, you were lookin' my way
I don't believe in Lady Luck, or what the cards portray
But I could see your shining light, and I'm in disarray

Chorus:
If I'm sleeping, don't wake me up, if I'm sleeping
If I'm sleeping, don't wake me up, if I'm sleeping

I thought I'd better break the ice, and started moving your way
I lost direction, the room got crowded, so I must have gone astray
I still don't know how it happened, there's only me to blame

chorus

I don't understand it, what is happening, what is happening
It's not the way we planned it, what is happening, take it away

(Solo)

I don't understand it, what is happening, what is happening
It's not the way we planned it, what is happening, so take it away

chorus

If I'm sleeping, don't wake me up, if I'm sleeping, leave me alone
If I'm sleeping, if I'm sleeping, why don't you leave me alone...
