New Way To Love
Maybe we don't need to share the same roof, maybe
If you really love me, you don't need me 'round for proof, baby
If I go to the desert for some clean dry air
We could have ourselves a long distance love affair
We'll take it anywhere, a nationwide pair
Well If your living together isn't working out
I'd rather live in Nebraska, than keep livin' here in doubt
I'll take an alternate route, I'll find a new way
There are places to go that we've never dreamed of
We're gonna find a new way to love

Chorus:
We're gonna find a new way to love, find out what satisfies us
The good old ways just ain't good enough
We're gonna find a new way to love

Maybe we could learn to like the same things, maybe
Discover the joy that togetherness brings, baby
We could share our records, we could see the same plays
Even plan our vacations for the very same days
We'll put our lives in phase, livin' in a happiness haze
Well it may not be easy, but then nothin' else was
Ask a mountain climber why he does what he does
He'll tell you just because, I need to find a new way
Hey now we've got a mountain of our own to rise above
We're gonna find a new way to love

chorus

(Solo)

Maybe we don't need to see eye to eye, maybe
We don't need to vote for the very same guy, baby
You can move to the left whenever I keep right
I'm a big bad wolf, you can be Snow White
I've got a huge appetite, you wanna eat light
I'm down here beggin' for more, you tell me you've had enough
We gotta find a new way to love

chorus repeats 4x

We're gonna find a new way to loveback to top
That Ain't Love
You tell me what you think I'm feelin', you know why I do what I do
Why should you listen to a word I'm sayin', when it's already so clear to you
You tell me 'bout my bad intentions, you doubt the very things I hold true
I can no longer live with your misconceptions, baby all I can say to you, is

Chorus:
That ain't love, I believe you've got the wrong emotion
That ain't love, at least it doesn't feel like love to me
As long as I say what you wanna hear
Do what you wanna do, be who you want me to be
You think that's love, well baby that ain't love to me

We've got to talk it over sometime, these feelings won't just disappear
I'm just gonna keep telling you what's on my mind
Even if it's not what you wanna hear
Oooh right now your world and mine are such different places
Through yours I wander lost and confused
And I feel like I'm speaking in a different language
And the only words I haven't used, are

chorus

You keep tellin' me, you know a place where your life would be better
You're makin' plans long-range
But I don't know how you expect to get there, when you refuse to change

(Solo)

Oooh baby - chorus

Ooh baby that ain't love, that ain't lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-love
That ain't love, oh no, baby that ain't love, that ain't love
(That ain't love, that ain't love, that ain't love, oohoo)back to top
In My Dreams
There was a time some time ago
When every sunrise meant a sunny day, oh a sunny day
But now when the morning light shines in
It only disturbs the dreamland where I lay, oh where I lay
I used to thank the lord when I'd wake
For life and love and the golden sky above me
But now I pray the stars will go on shinin', you see in my dreams you love me

Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees
If only I could stay asleep, at least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'Cause nighttime is the one time I am happy, you see in my dreams

Chorus:
We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us, we are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me, in my dreams

(Solo)

I keep hopin' one day I'll awaken, and somehow she'll be lying by my side
And as I wonder if the dawn is really breakin'
She touches me and suddenly I'm alive

chorus repeats 2x

Oho, in my dreamsback to top
One Too Many Girlfriends
Talkin' 'bout a hot-wired kid who thought he knew it all
And what he didn't know, he didn't need to
Changin' women like tires when their use wore thin
Retread feelings, that's all we knew
He's been runnin' lights for years, grindin' down those forward gears
He's got a lady in the back seat, lady in the front seat
Eyes on the road and whispers in both ears

Chorus:
One too many girlfriends, and too little feeling left
He better find the one, he's gonna take on the run, before it runs him down
He's got far too many choices, he better make a few of them
He wants to have it all, and wind up standin' tall
I hope his dream never ends, I guess it just depends
He's got one too many girlfriends

Well there's so damn much writin' written on his walls
I can't imagine that he doesn't read it
Such a loud clear message screaming through the halls
Keep your advice, he don't need it
He's heard of living up to the truth, thinks it means giving up his youth
He doesn't wanna get a haircut, looking for a shortcut
He needs a change, he needs more than a phone booth

chorus

Whooo, there's anger and romance at every turn
Whooo, be careful boy that you don't crash and burn
You're in about as deep as you can get
It's a matter of time before you get wet
I wouldn't be in your shoes on a bet

(Solo)

He's been runnin' lights for years, grindin' down those forward gears
He's got a lady in the back seat, lady in the front seat
Eyes on the road and whispers in both ears

chorus

He's got one too many girlfriends... look out!back to top
Ariety Tonight
If ever you think you miss the thrill of the chase
Or just get tired of the same old face
I can be different honey, I can be new
Want someone else, I can be that too

Chorus:
Whoa-oh, gonna make you feel right, honey if you want it, variety tonight
Whoa-oh, gonna make you feel right, honey you got it, variety tonight

The faces of love have their smiles and frowns
And every romance has its ups and downs
There are cases when love has been less than sweet
Love without hate is a little like light without heat

chorus

And the fire will fade if you forget it
'Cause love can't live unless you let it
Whoa, you gotta try just a little harder with the passin' days
You got to find some new ways, ow!

(Solo)

chorus repeats out...back to top
Screams And Whispers
There's truth in your eyes, let me hear it from your lips
Your tears say you cry, let your words be the whip, baby

There's no reason anymore to live with all the pain
Take this key, unlock the door, before it makes us both insane

Spill your heart out to me, darlin', girl I really need to know

Chorus:
Screams and whispers, don't be afraid
Let's be more than lovers tonight
Screams and whispers, let go of the pain
Whatever we uncover, we can make it, make it alright

Alright

I know you've been alone, takin' care of yourself
Girl don't you think it's time to trust somebody else?

Try just once to let your guard down, you've got nothin' there to hide

chorus

(Solo)

Spill your heart out to me, darlin', girl I really need to know

chorus repeats 2x
(2nd time: "Whatever we uncover, there'll be screams and whispers tonight")

Can't Get You Out Of My Heart
Chorus:
Can't get you out of my heart, can't get you out of my soul
When I get next to you, all I get is out of control
Can't get you out of my head, I've memorized every word you ever said
You've been here from the start, can't get you out of my heart

Sometimes I feel like breakin' up with you
I'm tired of bein' true, tired of bein' blue
Still you're the one I give my best love to
No other girl would do the things to me you do, and I

chorus

Sometimes I think I might be better off free
No strings attached to me, yeah that's how it should be
But just about the time that I get goin'
You read me like a poem, you keep me comin' home, and I

chorus

I look at you sometimes, I see the woman I love
But I can be so blind, the good times I sometimes lose sight of

chorus repeats 2xback to top
Over The Edge
I had eyes but I could not see, I hurt everybody who believed in me
I had it all but I lost the key, oh
I saw the world through fogged-up glasses, like some Lothario making passes
I showed the world just what an ass is, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
Trouble in paradise, treadin' on the thinnest ice
Oh-oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
Cuttin' with a razor blade, spendin' every cent I made
Over the edge

I dreamed of standin' on my own two feet
My fists held high and I clenched my teeth
But I'd wake up to the same old me, oh
I was living a lie, but you brought me truth
Afraid to cry, but you taught me to
You stood beside me, now I'll stand by you, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
I wasn't foolin' anyone, playin' with a loaded gun
Oh-oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
I was numbing all the pain, you taught me how to feel again

(Solo)

If I had died, it would have been a shame
They'd have said "he only had himself to blame"
You saved my life when you called my name, oh

I was over the edge, I was always out of my head
I was numbing all the pain, you showed me how to feel again
Oh-oh, over the edge, I wouldn't listen to what anybody said
When you looked me in the eyes, you finally made me recognize

Oh-oh, over the edge (repeats 4x)back to top
Accidents Can Happen
There's a side of you, could bring on homicide
But livin' in a cell changes my view
Maybe your automobile could lose its right front wheel
It happens every day, it could be you

Look back over your shoulder, when you think you're alone, you're not
Each noise, every shadow, look out!

Chorus:
Accidents can happen, it's always in the news
Accidents can happen to you
You read it in the paper, you see it on the tube
Accidents can happen

To you

A little Haitian doll, that looks a lot like you do
A little powdered poison in your tea
Electricity, invisible to see, I'd like to introduce you to Mr. E

A malfunction, who would notice, machines and things get hot
A permanent vacation can be bought

chorus - look out!

(Solo)

Accidents can happen, accidents can happen, accidents can happen to you

chorus - accidents can happen, accidents can happen - look out!back to top
Tired Of Gettin' Nowhere
Chorus:
I'm tired of gettin' nowhere, wish I was inspired, but it's just not there
I hope this doesn't last, 'cause I'm tired of gettin' nowhere fast

Woke up this morning and went back to sleep
The sun was pourin' and the rain was gettin' deep
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
'Cause everywhere I turn, I wind up headin' back to you

I don't know how long I will lay here in this bed
Staring at the ceiling, going crazy in my head
Got to find some meaning, some kind of reason to go on
The only one I had was you and now you're gone, and

chorus

My friends all tell me I should mellow out
Surely I've got better things to think about
Must be something I can find to help me lose these blues
But the only thing that's on my mind, is standing in your shoes

chorus

You'd think by now I'd be exactly where I want to be
Got what I need, know what I need to know
I'm all dressed up but without you there's nowhere to go

(Solo)

Ooh, you'd think by now I'd be exactly where I want to be
Got what I need, know what I need to know
I'm all dressed up but without you there's nowhere to go

And I'm so tired of gettin' nowhere
Wish I was inspired, but it's just not there
I hope this doesn't last, 'cause I'm tired of gettin'
Tired of gettin', tired of gettin' nowhere

I'm tired of gettin' nowhere, so real tired of gettin' nowhere
Tired of gettin' nowhere, tired, tired of gettin'
I'm tired of gettin' nowhere, ooh yeah, won't you say it, ooh yeah
Tired of gettin' nowhere fast - get some rest!
