Free Fallin'
She's a good girl, loves her mam a
Loves jesus and america too
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout elvis
Loves horses and her boyfriend too

It's a long day living in reseda
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard
And I'm a bad boy cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

All the vampires walkin' through the valley
Move west down ventura boulevard
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows
A ll the good girls are home with broken hearts

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'
Free fallin', now I'm free fallin', now i'm
Free fallin', now I'm free fallin', now i'm

I wanna glide down over mulholland
I wanna write her name in the sky
Gonna free fall out into nothin'
Gonna leave this world for a while

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'back to top
I Won't Back Down
Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down.

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back downback to top
Love Is a Long Road
There was a girl I knew
She said she cared about me
She tried to make my world
The way she thought it should be
Yeah we were desperate then
To have each other to hold
But love is a long road
Yeah love is a long long road

There were so many times
I would wake up at noon
Yeah, with my head spinning 'round
I would wait for the moon
And give her one more chance
To try and save my soul
But love is a long road
Yeah love is a long long road

Some things are hard to give up
Some things are hard to let go
Some things are never enough
I guess I only can hope
For maybe one more chance
To try and save my soul
But love is a long road
Yeah love is a long long road

Love is a long long road
Y eah love is a long long road
Oh, it's a long long roadback to top
A Face in the Crowd
Before all of this ever went down
In another place, another town,
You were just a face in the crowd
Out in t he street walking around

A face in the crowd

Out of a dream, out of the sky
Into my heart, into my life
And you were just a face in the crowd
Out in the street, thinking out loud

A face in the crowdback to top
Runnin' Down a Dream
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
The trees went by, me and del were singin'
Little runaway, I was flyin'

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

I felt so good, like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppabl e
It was always cold, no sun shine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever is mine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dreamback to top
Yer So Bad
My sister got lucky, married a yuppie
Took him for all he was worth
Now she's a swinger dating a singer
I can' decide which is worse

But not me, baby
I've got you to save me
Aw, yer so bad
Best thing I've ever had
In a world gone mad
Yer so bad

My sister's ex-husband can't get no lovin'
Walks around dog-faced and hurt
Now he's got nothin', head in the oven
I can't decide which is worse

But not me, baby
I've got you to save me
Aw, yer so bad
Best thing I've ever had
In a worl d gone mad
Yer so bad

Oh, but not me, baby
I've got you to save me
Aw, yer so bad
Best thing I've ever had
In a world gone mad
Yer so bad

Oh, but not me, baby
I've got you to save me
Aw, yer so bad
Bes t thing I've ever had
In a world gone mad
Yer so badback to top
Depending on You
I ain't never gonna let you down
All you gotta do is trust me
I would never make you some clown
Baby why won't you trust me

You give up so easily I don't know why you can't see
I'm depending on you, don't let me down
I'm depending on you

Baby if you can't change the world
Maybe you should just change yourself
You u sed to be such a sweet young girl
Why you wanna be someone else?

You give up so easily
I don't know why you can't see
I'm depending on you
Is it to late now
I'm depending on youback to top
The Apartment Song
I used to live in a two-room apartment
Neighbors knockin' on my wall
Times were hard, I don't wanna knock it
I don't miss it much at all

Oh yeah I'm alright I just feel a little lonely tonight
I'm okay, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
Lately I get a faraway feeling
And the whole thing starts again

Oh yeah I'm alright I just feel a little lonely tonight
I'm okay, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
Lately I get a faraway feeling
And the whole thing starts againback to top
Alright for Now
Goodnight baby, sleep tight my love
May God watch over you from above
Tomorrow I'm workin' what would I do
I'd be lost & lonely if not for you

So close your eyes
We're alright for now

I've spent my life travelin'
I've spent my life free
I could not repay all you've done for me

So sleep tight baby
Unfurrow your brow
And know I love you
We're alright for now
We're alright for nowback to top
A Mind With a Heart of Its Own
I remember her standing in the tall grass and cattails
Away from the windows at the end of the day
Watching the men from the landing in the tall hats & coat-tails
She'd never look different, but something would change

A mind with a heart of it's own
Yeah a mind with a heart of it's own

Well the man out to end us had a hurricane business
He's raise them from babies all by his self
But his teen-age accountant had become surrounded
He drank up the party and everyone left

A mind with a heart of it's own
Yes a mind with a heart of it's own

Well I been to brooker and I been to micanopy
I been to st. louis too, I been all around the world
I've been over to your house
And you've been over sometimes to my house
I've slept in your tree house
My middle name is earl

A mind with a heart of it's own
A mind with a heart of it's own
Yeah a mind with a heart of it's ownback to top
Zombie Zoo
All down the street
Standin' in line
With white leater
And one thing on their mind

Hey little freak
With the lunch pale purse
Underneath the paint it's just a little girl
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all you want to do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo

Cute little drop out
How come you pack a ride
Is your mother in a clinic
Does your father got no job

Some times you're so impulsive
You shaved off all your hair
You look like Boris Carliel
And you don't even care
You're dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all you want to do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo

She disapears at sunrise
I wonder where she goes
Untill the night <-----sustained
Comes crawlin' down again
You show up with your friends half alive <-----sustained

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo

Well you can make a big impression
Or go through life unseen
You might wind up resticted
And over seventeen
It's so hard to be carefull
So easy ro be lit
Some where behind the pavement
You'll find the living dead

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo

Painted in a corner and all she wants to do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo
She disapears at sunrise
I don't know where she goes
Untill the night <-----Sustained
Comes crawlin' down again
She shows up with her friends half alive <-----Sustained

Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Dancin' at the zombie zoo
Painted in a corner and all you want to do
Is dance down at the zombie zoo

Yea dance down at the zombie zoo
Yea dance down at the zombie zooback to top
