Holy Water
In my life, there's been changes
But nothing seems to satisfy me the way you do, no
You make it easy, the way you please me, everytime I'm close to you
All this temptation, I can't see wrong from right
It's a new sensation, you know I'm blinded by the light

Chorus:
(Feels like) I'm walking on holy water
Feels like I'm walking on sacred ground, baby
(Feels like) I'm walking on holy water, everytime (that) you come 'round

You were all I ever wanted, never had a girl in my life 'til I met you, oh no
I got a certain feeling, you got my senses reeling
Whenever I get close to you
You're my salvation, I found you just in time
My one temptation, you know I can't believe you're mine

chorus

Ooh yeah, it's funny how it see,s like yesterday, lovin' of the first degree
One word was all I heard you say, ooh baby
It's funny what you've done to me, just wanna see you run to me

(Solo)

All this temptation, I can't see wrong from right
It's a new sensation, you know I'm blinded by the light

Walk Through Fire
I used to see those red tail lights, heading for another town
And wish that I was on my way
Looking back on these summer nights, wasting time, fooling 'round
And there was nothing here to make me stay

But that night I met you, the night you came through made me realise
There's no way I can leave, you made me believe
And now when I look in your eyes

Chorus:
I could walk through fire, I can feel it burning
And I could walk through fire, (to get) right back to you
And as the flames get higher, you know I'll get stronger
Baby I could walk through fire

It's crazy how these things work out, I used to think I had no chance
And I somehow thought you'd slip away
You pulled me through the fear and doubt, gave me all I'm looking for
Everything I needed to stay

How could something so good, something so simple, get serious
How could someone so right come into my life, and now I just want you to know

chorus

And I would go anywhere, I would do anything, I do what you want me to
You know that I would, I want you to know this, whenever you need me
Ooh wherever you are, no matter how far, you know I'll be coming for you

chorus

Baby I could walk through fire, right back to you
And I could walk through fire, and I could walk through fire
And I could walk through fire, right back to you, yeahback to top
Stranger Stranger
There's a crazy moon, a crazy sky, looking down on me
I've been losing track of time
It's been the hardest day, the longest night I've ever spent alone
I can't get you off my mind

You know what I've been missing, do I really have to say
We talk but you don't listen, it's not always been that way, no, she's a

Chorus:
Stranger, stranger - you're not the girl I knew, will you ever be the same
You act like a stranger, stranger - tell me it ain't true
Won't you please explain, why you're so strange

In the morning gloom, this empty room, I can see your face
When I look again, you're gone
Your memory, so close to me, it leaves a trace
Won't you tell me what went wrong

No sign, no words, no warning, we can never be the same, no
When you walked out that morning, you know you left nothing but the blame

I know that you're a - chorus

(Solo)

Oh, you're a - chorus repeats 2xback to top
If You Needed Somebody
Should have told you by now, but I can't find the words, oh no
If I could show you somehow, but I don't have the nerve, oh yeah

You don't see me looking at you, how can love be so blind
Somehow you don't notice me, sooner or later there will come a time, baby

Chorus:
If you need somebody, the way that I need you
If you wanted somebody, the way that I want you

Oh yeah, the way that I want you

If I could hold you tonight, it would last me forever
But the time's never right, when will we be together, oh no

If I could make you understand, what you're doing to me
Maybe there will come a time, when sooner or later I will make you see, baby

chorus

Ooh, if I could tell you now, the way you make me feel
Ooh, if I could show you somehow, don't you know my lovin' is oh so real

(Solo)

chorus

(If you need somebody) I need you, I want you, I gotta tell you
The way that I need you
And if you wanted somebody, the way that I want you...back to top
Fearless
Everyday of her life, she's been living in a fantasy world
Chasing her dreams, so close she could scream
Inside she's just a little lost girl

When she's hot for action, she knows the right place, yeah
But she's ready for trouble, she just can't wait, no, look at her face
You know she's

Chorus:
Fearless, fearless - dancing on the tables
Fearless, fearless - tearin' up the floor
Fearless, fearless - the girl is such a rebel
She's so hot, I can't take anymore

Oh no, she's so fearless

In the middle of the night, you know that sometimes she's gonna show
Never bothers to knock, 'cos baby ready or not
You know she'll find somewhere to go

Don't ever stop her dancing or get in her way, yeah
You know she's heading for trouble, the girl's a disgrace, look at her face

You know she's - chorus

The girl's got nothing to lose, she'll never be a lady
So don't put your head in her noose, you know she'll drive you crazy

(Solo)

she's hot for action, she knows the right place, yeah
But she's heading for trouble, the girl's a disgrace, look at her face

You know she's - chorus repeats out...back to top
Lay Your Love On Me
I've been up, I've been down, I've been in every situation
I've been pushed, pushed around, and I've been stuck at every station
Looking back, felt so good, searching for fortune and fame
Suddenly comes to you, you're only playing a game

(Don't need no video) no matter what they say
(Don't need no radio) you know, love is here to stay

Chorus:
Lay your love on me, each and every night, baby
Lay your love on me, it'll be alright

Straight up, down the line, I've got the blues in my soul
All I need is my guitar, I got this rock, I wanna roll
You gotta fight for what's right, I never did need the fame
Suddenly comes to you, you're only playing a game

(Don't need no video) no matter what they say
(Don't need no radio) you know, love is here to stay

chorus

(Solo)

(Don't need no video) no matter what they say
(Don't need no radio) love is here to stay

chorus repeats out...back to top
Boys Cry Tough
Bobby's going out tonight, looking for trouble
Everybody likes to fight sometimes
Heading south on 41, straight for the action
Meeting the boys at the county line

He kicks it into overdrive, really puts that pedal down
Feels so good to be alive, he's had enough of being pushed around

Bobby and the boys walk in, the heads start turning
They don't like no strangers in this place, no no
Everybody's acting tough, words get spoken
And someone pulls a knife in Bobby's face

He turns away but it's too late, he's gotta face them on his own
Left him there to meet his fate, Bobby's never going home

Chorus:
Boys cry tough, boys fight dirty
Life gets rough, when you're living on a fine line

Mary's waiting home tonight, she's dreaming of church bells
Bobby says the day is getting near
Mary hears the doorbell ring, the blue lights are flashing
At 2 am her dreams all disappear

Mary's world is turning upside down, she's been left here on her own
Her world is spinning 'round and 'round, Bobby's never coming home

chorus

He said that soon their lives would be as one
Looks like you're gonna be the lonely one

(Solo)

Maybe in a year or two, she'll find someone of her own
Mary don't you wait around, Bobby's never coming home

chorus repeats 2xback to top
With You In A Heartbeat
I had your picture, I had it there on the wall
It's been a long time, I didn't notice it fall
Just goes to show you, things get strange, there's nothin', nothin' I can do
You got your own life, I got mine, I still got feelings for you

And I wonder what you're thinking, does it ever seem right
Don't you know there's something missing, we don't have to fight
If you call me tonight

Chorus:
I'll be with you in a heartbeat, just whisper my name
And I'll be with you in a heartbeat, no questions, no blame
And I'll be with you in a heartbeat, just whisper my, just whisper my name

I got no answers, sometimes I just wanna shout
Which way to turn now, can't seem to figure this out
I haven't seen you in oh so long, nothin', nothin' seems to fade
Tried to forget you, but you won't go, ooh the memories we made

And I tried so hard to fight it, but it keeps comin' through
Ooh you were all I ever wanted, I'm waiting for you, if you wanted me too

chorus

(Solo)

And I wonder what you're thinking, does it ever seem right
Don't you know there's something missing, we don't have to fight
If you call me tonight

chorus repeats out...back to top
I Don't Care
Who's that girl, looking kinda innocent and shy
I've been told, she's the kinda girl that waves you goodbye
Bad reputation, rumours going 'round
My friends are talking, putting her down
Ooh that girl, I really wanna know that girl

Gonna walk right up, get next to you, gonna tell you babe, what I'm gonna do

Chorus:
I don't care what people say - I want you, yes I do
I don't care what people say - I want you, yes I do

I don't care, everybody thinks I'm a fool
I'm aware, loving you ain't considered cool
I never worry what people say
You know my mind's made up, there's only one way
Ooh that girl, I really wanna know that girl

Gonna make my move, play my hand, got a lot to prove, make you understand

chorus

So get ready, I'm comin' through, know what to say, know what to do
I've looked you up, looked you down, you're the kinda woman, I want around

(Solo)

Bad reputation, rumours going 'round
My friends are talking, putting her down
Ooh that girl, I really wanna know that girl

Gonna walk right up, get next to you, gonna tell you babe, what I'm gonna do

chorus repeats out...back to top
Never Too Late
Last night, you said you didn't know what you wanted
Baby that's all right, I can help you see this one through

I know you won't leave him, you think it's all wrong
Why don't you open your eyes
You're so unhappy but you keep hanging on, so trust me, baby and you'll see

Chorus:
It's never too late to change your mind - get out and take what you need
It's never too late, so take your time - you (just) gotta believe

One day, you'll look back and think you were crazy
There's no way, that's how it gets you sometimes

Right now, you can't let him go, there's something inside you
I won't tell you, you should know, it's so clear, baby, I'm right here

chorus

(Solo)

One day, you'll come running to me, it's just a matter of time
I'm right here where you know that I'll be, so trust me and you'll see

chorus repeats out...back to top
Dead Of The Night
Every night as I sit on my own, I still think I can hear you
I can't stand all this being alone, I just gotta be near you
I don't know if you're coming back, sometimes I could scream
But every night I know I'll see you, you still live in my dreams

Chorus:
In the dead of the night, when everybody's sleeping
Oh that is the time, when you come around

You left and my world fell apart, and I was desperate to find you
I want you back but where do I start, I need help to remind you
I don't know if you'll ever remember, when love reigned supreme
The only time that I get to see you now, is here in my dreams

chorus

(Solo)

Oh babe when you come back, and put and end to this pain
Meantime if I close my eyes, I'll see you again

chorus repeats out...back to top
I Can't Live Without You
The first time you deceived me, it nearly broke my heart
What hurts me most was I'm the last to know
So lately I've been thinking, thinking 'bout you
I know deep in my heart you had to go

Last night when I told you, you looked into my eyes
A wicked smile just spread across your face
You know I can't resist you, no matter what you do
The way you treat me babe, it's a disgrace

Chorus:
I can't live without you, heaven knows I really tried
Girl there's something wild about you, and it won't let me say goodbye

Girl you drive me crazy, I don't know what to do
Every night I keep on losing sleep
'Cos when I make my mind up, you smile that wicked smile
That's when I know I'm in too deep

chorus

You just laugh everytime that I go crazy
You know too well who's got control
The way you turn me inside out, you just amaze me
You got my heart and soul, girl you've got it all

(Solo)

chorus repeats outback to top
100 Miles
Hey little girl, I love you so
I'd walk a hundred miles to let you know
Hey little baby, your eyes sure shine
When your hand reaches out and touches mine

'Cos you're my baby, you're my baby, my little girl

Hey little girl, let me kiss your lips
Let me feel you thrill to my fingertips
Hey little baby, let me take your hand
Let me lead you to the promised land

'Cos you're my baby, you're my baby, my little girl

Hey little girl, I love you so
I'd walk a hundred miles to let you know
Hey little girl, I love you so
I'd walk a hundred miles to let you know
