A One Story Town
I'm for standin' up, I'm for breakin' free
I don't want fate handed down to me
Yeah I'm for movin' on, try another town
Time ain't changin' nothin', take a look around

Oh, I'm lost in a one story town
Where everything's close to the ground
Yeah the same shit goes down
Nothing turns around
It's a one story town

She was only seventeen
But I held her to her word
Had to push her luck
Thought she couldn't burn

No it didn't hurt me
When she had to leave
She had a far away feeling
Wasn't part of me

Oh, I'm lost in a one story town
Where everything's close to the ground
Yeah the same shit goes down
Nothing turns around
It's a one story townback to top
You Got Lucky
You better watch what you say
You better watch what you do to me
Don't get carried away
Girl, if you can do better than me
Go...yeah, go
But remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you

You put a hand on my cheek
And then you turn your eyes away
If you don't feel complete
If I don't take you all of the way
Then go, yeah, go,
But remember

Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found you

Yeah go,
Just, go,
But remember
Good love is hard to find
Good love is hard to find
You got lucky, babe
You got lucky, babe
When I found youback to top
Deliver Me
Every woman and every man,
Knows the feeling so well
Those times when the heart just can't understand,
The times when you never can te ll

So deliver me, deliver me
Baby take this heart, set it free
Take this chance, take this dream
Baby take this heart
Deliver me

I was born with something down inside of me
And it's carried me over, delivered me
Y eah delivered me, I'm standing' at your gate
Just out of reach of the hands of fate

So deliver me, deliver me
Baby take this heart, set it free
Take this chance, take this dream
Baby take this heart
Deliver me

Sometim es I wonder if this is worth the trouble
Sometimes I wonder if this is worth the fight
I never have made my mind up about it
I've just decided to let it all rideback to top
Change of Heart
Well I fought for you
I fought too hard, to do it all again
It's come too far
You never needed me, you only wanted me around
It gets me down

There's been a change
Yeah there's been a change of heart
I said there's been a change
You pushed just a little too far
Made it just a little too hard
There's been a change of heart

I'll get over you, it won't take long
I've stood in your gallery
I've seen what's hangin' from the walls
You were the moon and sun
You're just a loaded gun now
It gets me down--

There's been a change
Yeah there's been a change of heart
I said there's been a change
You pushed just a little too far
Made it just a little too hard
There's been a change of heart

Oh yeah, oh boy looks like we finally hit the turning point
Oh me, oh my looks like it's time for me to kiss it good-bye--

There's been a change
Yeah there's been a change of heart
I said there's been a change
You pushed just a little too far
Made it just a little too hard
There's been a change of heartback to top
Finding Out
There's something wrong, I can't get my finger on it
I must be looking over something
Sometimes at night I've had to fight with this emptiness
It's been so hard to see, there's something more than this

I'm finding out, I'm finding out
Yeah it took a little ti me to get what love was about
But honey I'm coming 'round
I'm finding out

I've had enough of all this hard core loneliness
I don't think pain is so romantic
I'm just a working man
I feel each day go by
I couldn't understan d I was too weak to fight

But I'm finding out, I'm finding out
It took a little time for me to stand up and shout
But honey I'm coming 'round, I'm finding out

I have to thank you baby, honey I must confess
You have pulled me from this river of loneliness

I'm finding out, baby I'm finding out
Yeah it took a little time to get what love was about
But honey I'm coming 'round
I'm finding outback to top
We Stand a Chance
Stand back from me honey
Because I don't know what I might do next
No I'm surprised by this, frightened by this
Nothin' ever got me so out of my head, baby

We stand a chance
We stand a chance
Yeah, and I could be wrong, but you never know
We could stand the chance of a real love

Oh, God knows I love you
God knows I do,
Baby will you let me just prove it to you
Come here to me baby, come here to me now
I wanna talk to you, talk to you
And tell you somehow, that

We stand a chance
We stand a chance
Yeah, and I could be wrong, but you never know
We could stand the chance of a real love

I'm so moved, I'm so changed
My whole world is a fountain of flame

We stand a chance
We stand a chance
Yeah, and I could be wrong, but you never know
We could stand the chance of a real loveback to top
Straight into Darkness
There was a little girl, I used t o know her
I still think about her, time to time
There was a moment when I really loved her
Then one day the feeling just died

We went straight into darkness
Out over the line
Yeah straight into darkness
Straight into nigh t

I remember flying out to london
I remember the feeling at the time
Out the window of the 747
Man there was nothin', only black sky

We went straight into darkness
Out over the line
Straight into darkness
Straight into night

Oh give it up to me I need it
Girl, I know when I see it
Baby wrong or right I need it

I don't believe the good times are over
I don't believe the thrill is all gone
Real love is a man's salvation
The weak ones fall the strong carry on

Straight into darkness
Out over the line
Yeah straight into darkness
Straight into nightback to top
The Same Old You
Yeah I remember you back in '72
With your david bowie hair and your platform shoes
A part-time job, sellin' fast food
But out on the street you were nobody's fool

Baby way down deep it's the same old you
Way down deep you ain't hiding the truth
Just for a minute you had me fooled
Baby way down deep it's the same old you

Well you can walk through the city on fire
You can try and turn away from the truth
Living life like a young politician
Sure of yourself and bullet-proof
But baby,

Way down deep it's the same old you
Way down deep you ain't hiding the truth
Just for a minute you had me confused
Baby way down deep it's the same old you

We could buy a '62 cadillac
Put a fender amplifier in the back
Drive straight to the heart of america
Turn up to ten, let that sucker blast

Baby way down deep it's the same old you
Way down deep you ain't hiding the truth
Just for a minute you had me fooled
Baby way down deep it's the same old youback to top
Between Two Worlds
I got a dirty, dirty feelin'
That I just can't shake
Yeah my brain keeps burnin'
And my body just aches

I know a woman's body
Is only flesh and bone
A woman's body is
Only flesh and bone

How come I can't let go?
I'm between two worlds
I said oh yeah, I'm out of my mind
I'm between two worlds

There's a lot of people talkin'
'bout the danger zone
There's adventure novels
'bout takin' to the road

I know a woman's body
Is only flesh and bone
How come I can't let go
I'm between two worldsback to top
A Wasted Life
I know you're walkin' down a lonely street
I know you can't get out of the heat
Baby it's alright
Don't have a wasted life

I know you have to feel a little used up
And no one can give you enough
Baby hold on tight

Don't have a wasted life
I love you too much
Don't have a wasted life
I love you too much

They give it to you from the time you're born
You keep tryin' to make one more score
Baby it's alright
You gotta stand and fight
So when you're lonely and you fe el let down
You can call me I'll come around
And treat you nice
Don't have a wasted life
I love you too much uh, uh, uh, don't have a wasted lifeback to top
