Don't Stop Believin'
Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room, the smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night, it goes on and on and on and on

Chorus:
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice, just one more time
Some will win, some will lose, some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends, it goes on and on and on and on

chorus

(Solo)

Don't stop believin', hold on to that feelin', streetlight people
Don't stop believin', hold on, streetlight people
Don't stop believin', hold on to that feelin', streetlight people... (to fade)back to top
Stone In Love
Those crazy night, I do remember in my youth
I do recall, those were the best times, most of all
In the heat with a blue jean girl, burnin' love comes once in a lifetime
She found me singing by the railroad track
Took me home, we danced by moonlight

Chorus:
Those summer nights are callin', stone in love
Can't help myself, I'm fallin' stone in love

Old dusty roads, led to the river, runnin' slow
She pulled me down, and in clover we'd go 'round
In the heat with a blue jean girl, burnin' love comes once in a lifetime
Oh the memories never fade away, golden girl, I'll keep you forever

Who's Crying Now
It's been a mystery, and still they try to see
Why somethin' good can hurt so bad
Caught on a one-way street, the taste of bittersweet
Love will survive somehow, some way

Chorus:
One love feeds the fire, one heart burns desire, I wonder who's cryin' now
Two hearts born to run, who'll be the lonely one, I wonder who's cryin' now

So many stormy nights, so many wrong or rights
Neither could change their headstrong ways
And in a lover's rage, they tore another page
The fightin' is worth the love they save

chorus

Only so many tears you can cry
'til the heartache is over, and now you can say your love will never die

Keep On Runnin'
Workin' in the city, this town's got no pity, bossman owns a heart of stone
I'm on the line, it's overtime, I'll tell you it's a crime
They get me by the hour, by my blue collar
You're squeezin' me too tight, it's Friday night
Let's run tonight, till the morning light

Chorus:
Keep on runnin', keep on hidin', keep on runnin' away
It's okay, it's alright, it's okay, it's alright
And if it makes you want to jump and shout, go ahead!
Keep on runnin', keep on hidin', keep on runnin' away, it's okay

Cruisin' with my baby, think we just might maybe
Find some back seat rhythm and blues, radio
I said down we go, ooh baby down we go

Keep on runnin', keep on hidin', keep on runnin' away, it's okay

Still They Ride
Jesse rides through the night, under the Main Street light, ridin' slow

This ol' town ain't the same, now nobody knows his name
Times have changed, still he rides

Traffic lights, keepin' time, leading the wild and restless through the night

Chorus:
Still they ride, on wheels of fire, they rule the night
Still they ride, the strong will survive, chasing thunder

Spinning 'round in a spell, it's hard to leave this carousel
'Round and 'round and 'round and 'round

Still they ride, on wheels of fire, they rule the night

(Solo)

Escape
He's just a young boy out of school, livin' his world like he wants to
They're makin' laws, but they don't understand, turns a boy into a fightin' man

They won't take me, they won't break me

No one could tell him what to do, had to learn everything the hard way
He's on the street, breakin' all the rules
I'm tellin' you that he's nobody's fool, no

They won't take me, they won't break me

Now he's leavin', gettin' out from the masquerade, oh gotta go

(Solo)

I'm finally out in the clear and I'm free, I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'm movin' on where they'll never find me, rollin' on to anywhere

I'll break away, yes I'm on my way, leavin' today, yes I'm on my way

Just when you think you had it all figured out
Runnin' scared can change your mind
I never knew I had so much to give, how hard times can fool ya'
Oh I'm okay, I'm alright, feelin' good out on your own
I'll break away, I'll break away tonight, I've got dreams I'm livin' for

I'll break away, yes I'm on my way
I'm leavin', leavin' today, yes I'm on my way
This is my escape, yes I'm on my way, I'll break away, yes I'm on my wayback to top
Lay It Down
Lookin' 'round for a feelin', I love the rhythm and blues
The place was rockin' and reelin', I thought I'd shake me loose
The band was pumpin' Motown, Lord how they could play
The girls a-started singing, rock the night away

By the midnight hour, they could've raised the dead
They were takin' it higher, higher, higher, higher, ringin' in my head

Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down, lay it down

Whisky, wine and women, they get me through the night
I ain't lookin' for trouble, I ain't lookin' to fight
A little vertical persuasion would do me right
What I'm really needin', ah, double shot tonight

By the midnight hour, we were on our way
She was takin' it higher, higher, higher, higher, then I heard her say

Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down, lay it down

(Solo)

By the midnight hour, we were on our way
She was takin' it higher, higher, higher, higher, then I heard her say

Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down, lay it downback to top
Dead Or Alive
A double secret agent, and he was paid to kill
With cold steel magnum force, is how the man possessed the skill
He shot a man in Paris, he did a job in L.A.
And if the price was right, he'd surely take your life away

Wanted, wanted

Chorus:
Wanted, dead or alive, blood for money, money
Assault, homicide, blood for money, money, money, money

Oh yeah, wanted

He drove a Maserati, lived up in the hills
A cat with nine lives that's gone too far to feel the chill
He never thought it'd happen, it was his last mistake
'Cause he was gunned down by a heartless woman's .38

(Solo)

Mother, Father
She sits alone, an empty stare, a mother's face she wears
Where did she go wrong, the fight is gone, Lord help this broken home

Hey mother, father, sister, hey, come back, tryin', believin'
Hey mother, father, dreamer

Chorus:
Don't you know that I'm alive for you, I'm your seventh son
And when lightnin' strikes the family, have faith, believe

With dreams he tried, lost his pride, he drinks his life away
One photograph, in broken glass, it should not end this way

Through bitter tears and wounded years, those lies of blood were strong
So much to say, those yesterdays, so now don't you turn away

Hey mother, father, sister, hey, come back, tryin', believin'
Hey mother, father, dreamer

Have faith, believe, believeback to top
Open Arms
Lying beside you, here in the dark, feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere, how could our love be so blind
We sailed on together, we drifted apart, and here you are by my side

Chorus:
So now I come to you with open arms, nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms, hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Open arms

Living without you, living alone, this empty house seems to cold
Wanting to hold you, wanting you near, how much I wanted you home

But now that you've come back, turned night into day, I need you to stay

chorus
