Heat of the Night
I was caught in the crossfire of a silent scream
Where one man's nightmare is another man's dream
Pull the covers up high and pray for the mornin' light
Cause you're livin' alone in the heat of the night

Met a man with a message from the other side
Couldn't take the pressure - had to leave it behind
He said it's up to you
You can run or you can fight - (ya that's right)
Better leave it alone in the heat of the night

In the heat of the night they'll be comin' around
They'll be lookin' for answers they'll be chasin' you down
In the heat of the night
(where you gonna hide when it all comes down)
(don't look back don't ever turn around)

Had to pay the piper to call the tune
Said he'd be back someday - said he'd be back real soon
Pull the shades down low - you'll know when the time is right
When you're lyin' alone in the heat of the nightback to top
Into the Fire
Life - thin as a thread
Sometimes you're lucky
Sometimes you're better off dead

Your first breath is taken and in to the world you are cast
You long for tomorrow while living each day as your last

Well I know what your heart desires
But you can't take it with you
Into the fire

Now you've done all you can
Your life's at the crossroads
You watch as it slips through your hands

So stand on the mountain and shout in vain at the sky
But nobody hears you - the words only echo inside
Oh shelter the flame - it may expire
Risin' up from the ashes
Into the fire

Just hold on to your life down to the wire
Oh out from the dragon's jaws
Into the fire

There's a moment in every man's life
When he must decide what is wrong and what's right

You could wait for your dreams to come true
But time has no mercy
Time won't stand still for you

Well I know what your heart desires
Crawlin' out from the wreckage
Into the fire

Here I go...into the fire
I know...what your heart desiresback to top
Victim of Love
Livin' on your own can be a lonely game
A face in the crowd - no one knows your name
It's a table for one and a broken heart to go

She's the kind of lover that you always dreamed
Would come to stay and never wanna leave
But that's all changed - she's dealt the final blow
Heaven knows what you were thinkin' of
Don't blame yourself you're just a victim of love

It doesn't matter who was right or wrong
When the fire is over - when the magic's gone
You pick up the pieces and do the best you can

It knocks you down but you try it again
You get a little older it's a cryin' shame
Sometimes things don't work out like you plan

Who's gonna help when you've had enough
It ain't no secret you're a victim of love
Heaven knows what you were thinkin' of
Don't blame yourself you're just a victim of love

One goodbye was really all it took
Now you thumb through the pages of your little black book
But somehow all the numbers look the same
You've been thinkin' how to get around it
But there ain't nothin' you can do about it
Nothin' ventured - nothin' gained

Ain't nothin' you can't rise above
Call it what you want but you're a victim of love

Who's gonna help you when you've had enough
Ain't no secret you're a victim of love

I don't wanna lose your love...back to top
Another Day
Woke up lyin' on the floor
Can't recall the night before
Oh - another day

Outside it's cold and damp
Unemployment cheque is spent
Yeah - another day

Some people never know
You can't just let it go
Or try and work it out some other way
Some people never learn
My life ain't their concern
And nothin's gonna change come what may

Had a job but it fell through
Landlord says the rent is due
Oh - another day

They say the best in life is free
But if you don't pay then you don't eat
Oh - another day

I guess I'll never know
You can't just let it go
Or try to work it out some other way

Some people never learn
Their life ain't my concern
Ain't nothin' gonna change come what may

Grass looks greener on the other side
But I can't get there my hands are tied
And if I do don't be surprised
Oh - gotta figure it out another dayback to top
Native Son
I've seen many moons through these wrinkled eyes
The years have made me old but they've made me wise
Now the white man lives where our rivers run

For now better days have passed
We walk the streets of broken glass
Our people vanished as snow before the summer sun
Like dogs we were driven from this place
Such injustice, time will not erase
All these changes cannot be undone

When you feel the anger inside of you
Hold your head high - let your aim be true
Though your heart beats like a drum
My native son

Once there was a time my little one
Before the wagons - before the soldiers' guns
When this land was ours as far as the eagle flies

No white flag - no broken truce
With few words one can speak the truth - I don't hear it
Time won't heal it now

With each new day that comes to pass
Will the great spirit free us all at last?
He said we were the chosen ones

For all we had there's nothin' left
We won't forgive - we can't forget
You know that your day will come
My native son

With each new day that comes to pass
Will the great spirit free us all at last?
What has happened can never be undone

When I was young - not yet a man
The sun rose and set upon our land
We were the chosen ones
My native sonback to top
Only the Strong Survive
When the pressure's on and you're all alone
Take a little ride into the danger zone
When the moon is up and the skies are clear
Just show me a sign and we'll be outa here
Take me up on a wing and a prayer
If you need a friend you know I'll be there

Hound dogs howlin' all through the night
Eight miles high and I'm doin' alright
Better move over 'cause you're goin' too slow
I feel the need for freedom now it's time to go

It's a fine line between pleasure and pain
Let your conscience be your guide 'til we meet again

Your time has come - you can stand or you can run
But don't keep it all inside
Cause you gotta understand that there ain't no second chance
No-one gets outa here alive - only the strong survive

Tearin' it up goin' down the track
Gonna fly so high, I might never come back
If things get tough you can count me in
Cause if you play the game you gotta play to win

Take me up where only angels can fly
If you need a helpin' hand I won't pass you by

Your time has come - you can stand or you can run
But don't keep it all inside
Cause you gotta understand that there ain't no second chance
No-one gets outa here alive - only the strong survive

Solo

Take me up on a wing and a prayer
If you need someone you know I'll be there

Your time has come - you can stand or you can run
But don't keep it all inside
Cause you gotta understand that there ain't no second chance
No-one gets outa here alive

Only the strong survive
Only the strong survive
Well I'm doin' what I can - you gotta understand
Only the strong surviveback to top
Rebel
He made his way back to the old town
And everything looked just the same
The shops and the schools and the factories were there
But somehow the faces had changed

So he went for a walk in the high street
Took his coat off and rolled up his sleeves
He thought of his father and his father before him
And how he was the first one to leave

Well he didn't come here for forgiveness
There isn't a lot they can say
Cause I remember the reasons he first ran away

He's a rebel
Just a rebel
Got his back to the wall
Gonna fight 'til he falls
He's a rebel

Don't ever look back - don't surrender
The old men say they've seen it before
Oh they drink their beer and they talk about friends
Who didn't come back from the war

Don't say he's too young to remember
Don't tell him what's wrong or what's right
Just give him a chance to get out there and fight

He's a rebel
Just a rebel
All the battles are won
But he's still on the run
He's a rebel

When it comes time for leavin'
Don't stand in my way
There's nothin' left for me here
Gonna run, run away

In the morning he walks past the old house
In the rain under grey northern sky
There's a new coat of paint on the front garden gate
But there's more there than first meets the eye

For a moment he stands undecided
Looking back on the days of his youth
As two worlds collide in a moment of truth

He's a rebelback to top
Remembrance Day
For our king and our country and the promise of glory
We came from kingston and brighton to fight on the front line

Just lads from the farms and boys from the cities
Not meant to be soldiers we lay in the trenches

We'd face the fighting with a smile - or so we said
If only we had known what danger lay ahead

The sky turned to grey as we went into battle
On the fields of europe young men were fallin'

I'll be back for you someday - it won't be long
If I can just hold on 'til this bloody war is over

The guns will be silent on remembrance day
There'll be no more fighting on remembrance day

By october of 18 cambrai had fallen
Soon the war would be over and we'd be returnin'

Don't forget me while I'm gone far away
Well it won't be long 'till I'm back there in your arms again

One day soon - I don't know when
You know we'll all be free and the bells of peace will ring again

The time will come for you and me
We'll be goin' home when this bloody war is ended

The guns will be silent on remembrance day
We'll all say a prayer on remembrance day

On remembrance day - say a little prayer
On remembrance day

Well the guns will be silent
There'll be no more fighting
Oh we'll lay down our weapons
On remembrance dayback to top
Hearts on Fire
Some other time
Some other place
We might not 've 'bin here
Standin' face to face

I just wanna tell ya
Made up my mind
You know I can't help the way I feel inside

Oh this heart's on fire
Right from the start it's bin burnin' for you
Oh this heart's on fire
One thing honey - this heart's true

The streets are empty
The lights are down
Ain't nothin' movin'
This side of town

So come on over
I ain't hard to please
Oh baby - what you get ain't always what you need

Oh this heart's on fire
It's gettin' hotter now can't you see
Oh this heart's on fire
From now on babe it's gonna be you and me

Risin' to my feet I can feel the heat
It's tryin' to pull me under
Runnin' through the night we can make it right
It's comin' on like thunder

Some got it good some got it bad
But you're the best I ever had
I never worry you're so fine
From now on babe I'm gonna be by your sideback to top
Home Again
When I was younger
My life was torn asunder
And I was carried far away

Now somewhere in the distance
I feel a strange insistance
I long to be there once again

The day is drawing nearer
The time has come to leave here
The feeling just keeps gettin' stronger every day

So I pray for the moment when I'll be with you
And all that we hoped for is all comin' true
When the time we've spent waitin' is finally through
I'll be home again

I can still remember
Days that never ended
Standin' on a distant shore

With every raindrop fallin'
I hear the thunder callin'
Like so many times before

Sometimes in the darkness
I hear what my heart says
Maybe one day I'll know what that feelings for

So I wait for the moment when I'll be with you
And all that we hoped for is all comin' true
The time we've spent waitin' is finally through
I'll be home again

When you're out there on your own
It can chill you to the bone
There's a cold wind blowin'
But it feels good knowin'
The worst is over now - I'm finally goin' home

It's gettin' stronger
Can't wait any longerback to top
