The Seventh Seal
Walk me down to the wishing well
Help me find that miracle
Splash that holy water on me
Drown my faith in trinity, yeah!
Oh yeah

Little by little, gonna get it, I swear
One more piece of the puzzle, I'm there
Gotta get lucky, gotta get that done
Little bit of luck never hurts no one

Come on take me down, down, down...
I'm in a cold sweat
Lord don't let me drown, drown, drown, drown
In mother earth's soul, yet

Under darken skies
We'll see the light

Broken now I can't help but feel
Someone cracked the seventh seal
Nothing sacred, nothing left unturned
When nothing's simple
Then nothing's learned

So take me down to the virgin spring
Wash away my suffering, oh
Splash that holy water on me
Wash my eyes so I can see

Come on take me down, down, down...
I'm in a cold sweat
Yeah, don't let me drown, drown, drown, drown
In mother earth's soul, not yet
Lord I think I found, found, found
My mother lode, hey

Down, down, down, down, down,down
Take me down, down, down, down...
Take meback to top
Can't Stop Loving You
There's a time and place for everything, for everyone
We can push with all our might, but nothin's gonna come
Oh no, nothin's gonna change
And if I asked you not to try
Oh could you let it be
I wanna hold you and say
We can't throw this all away
Tell me you won't go, you won't go
Do you have to hear me say

I can't stop lovin' you
And no matter what I say or do
You know my heart is true, oh
I can't stop loving you

You change your friends, your place in life
You can change your mind, we can change the way we say
And do anytime
Oh no, but I think you'll find
That when you look inside your heart
Oh baby, I'll be there, yeah

Hold on
I'm holding on
Baby, just come on, come on, cdome on
I just wanna hear you say

I can't stop lovin' you
And no matter what you say or do
You know my heart is true, oh
I can't stop lovin' you

Oh, I'm so twisted and tied
And all I remember
Was how hard we tried
Only to surrender

And when it's over
I know how it's gonna be
And true love will never die
No, not fade away

And I can't stop lovin' you
No matter what I say or do
You know my heart is true, oh
I can't stop lovin' you

And I know what I got to do
Hey Ray, what you said is true
I can't stop lovin' you, oh
Oh, I can't stop lovin' youback to top
Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do)
It's ok, I'll do what I want
If I choose, I can take the fall
There's a choice, it's my destiny
In my hands, yeah it's up to me
I can drive
I can shoot a gun in the streets
Score me some heroin
I can jump, be the sacrifice
Bear the cross, just like Jesus Christ

And I don't wanna hear
What love can do
No, I ain't gonna tell you
What's right for you

Is it right to take the easy way
Close your eyes
Get on your knees an' pray
Now you're saved by a higher voice
givin' up, givin' up, givin' up your choise
If I'm wrong, then I'll pay for it
It I'm right, yeah you're gonna hear about it
But I've tried, yeah I've tried for it
I tried, I tried, 'til I'm satisfied

And I...
I'm tired of hearing what love can do
And I...
Ain't gonna tell you what's right for you

I've seen the damage done
Down with the shotgun
Don't stop the setting sun on my Kingdom Come ohhh...

Is it right to take the easy way
I don't know, I get on my knees an' pray
Now I'm saved by a higher voice
Givin' up, givin' up, givin' up my choise
If I'm wrong, then I'll pay for it
If I'm right, yeah you're gonna deal with it
'Cause I tried, yeah I tried for it
I'll try, I'll try, even die for it

No I...
Don't wanna hear what love can do
No I...
I can't tell you what's right for you
Oh I...I...I...
Tell you what love can do
No I...I...I...
Can't say but your time is through

I've seen the damge done
Oh Lord, I've heard the shotgun
I fought the setting sun
On my Kingdom Come ohhh...back to top
Amsterdam
Looking good through the window
Shinin' red and blue light
A little thick in the bottom
But still lookin' allright, yeah

Got a pocket full of money
Got me a long night ahead
A quick stop by the Bulldog
Score me some panama red, yeah

Wham, bam, oh Amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
Stone you like nothin' else can, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hot damn, roll an Amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
If she can't, then nothin' else can

Caught a plane outta Moskow
Spent one cold night in Berlin
It's a long hard way
But I'm comin' back again, yeah

Wham, bam, oh Amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
Stone you like nothin' else can, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, come on now, roll an Amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah
If she can't, then no one else can, yeah, yeah, yeah

Wham, bam, oh Amsterdam, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hot damn, burn an Amsterdam yea, yeah, yeah, yeah
Stone me like nothin' else can, yeah, yeah, yeahback to top
Big Fat Money
Some say money is bad for the soul
Bad for the rock, bad for the roll
Bad for the heart, bad for the brain
Bad for damn near everything, oh yeah

It must be good for something
Come on pay the rent

Telephone, telefax, telefunkin' teletrash
Tell a cop, tell a friend
Think we've hit the stoney end
Nothin' left, nothin' right
Now they want a bigger bite
Everybody wants some
Everybody wants some big money, oh yeah
They want big fat money
That's what I want
Big fat money

Too much temptation
Enough to kill a generation
Space station, starvation, premature ejaculation
This ain't groovin', this ain't funky
It's on my back
But it ain't my monkey, no
Oh yeah, gimme some of that big big money
That's what I want
Big fat money
Big fat money

Smoke this, eat that
My ol' lady's gettin' fat
High rise, high rent
Before it's earned, it's all been spent
Where's it gonna come from?
Who's it gonna go to?
Ain't beatin', but I'm being eatin' by money, oh yeah
Big big money, gimme, gimme, gimme
Some of that big money, alright
That's want I want

Well alright, oh, big big money
Now gimme, gimme, gimme
Some of that big money
That's what I want
That's all I need
Gimme big fat money
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme

Not Enough
To love somebody naturally
To love somebody faithfully
To love somebody equally
Is not enough
Is not enough
It's not enough

To love somebody secretly, and never touch
To love somebody honestly, and allways trust
To love somebody tenderly, the tender touch
It's not enough
It's not enough

Love hurts you sometimes
It's not so easy to find, no
Searchin' everywhere
You turn and swear
It's always been there

To love somebody foolishly, can happen once
To love somebody hopelessly, it hurts so much
To love somebody equally
Is not enough
Is not enough
It's not enough

Love takes a little time
It's no so easy to find, no
Searchin' everywhere
You turn and swear
She's always been there
Standin' there...oh

And if it don't come easily
One thing you must believe
You can always have trust in me
Because my heart will allways be, yours honestly

Yeah, love hurts you sometimes
Not so easy to find, no
Searchin' everywhere
Then turn and swear
It's always been there
Standing there

Love hurts you sometimes
Not yours, it's not mine, no
Love's only to share
Turn and swear
It's everywhere
Standing there
'Cause it's always been thereback to top
Aftershock
I don't care about the way that ya treated me
And I ain't crying 'bout the love I'm paying for
No I ain't bitchin' 'bout the things
You puttin' down here in the streets
No, I ain't going 'round saying things
About you I can't repeat

Hey, it ain't gonna change overnight
No
And it ain't goin' away without a fight
No

Now I ain't saying that I'm never
Gonna beg you, oh baby come back
But right now now, baby
I don't really want to see your face
Yeah, and that's a fact
Right now, honey
All I know is what I'm feeling inside
Right now, baby
I'm all alone and I'm swallowing a lot of pride

And it ain't gonna change overnight
No
And it ain't goin' away without a fight

Living with the aftershock
Why, why, why, I never thought
She'd walk
But now I'm living with the aftershock

And if it ain't gonna change
It ain't goin' away, no

Yeah, she opened up my eyes
Seeing what I wanna see
She kinda took me by surprise
Showed me what I hadn't seen, yeah, yeah
Living with the aftershock

Yeah, yeah, living with the aftershock
My, my,my, I guess that I never thought she'd walk
Living with the aftershock

And it ain't gonna change
It ain't goin' away
I said it ain't gonna change without a fight
I'm living with the aftershock
I'm living with the aftershock
Never gonna changeback to top

Take Me Back (Deja Vu)
I thought I saw you from a distance
I swore I'd find you once again
Touched that feelin' for an instance
Could not recall just where or when
Oh no

Some desert island off Marocco
We had a love so hard to find
Oh so full of life, so free and easy
Another place, another time, oh

Take me back
I wanna be there with you
It happened just like that yeah
Slip in a dream or two
Come on, take me back
Oh, deja vu

One soul, one mind
One light that shines
One love so fine
Oh, come on, take me back

Some call it fate, some superstition
Some call it luck, it's all the same
Just one of the mysteries of creation
Something you feel but can't explain

Oh, take me back
I wanna be there with you
It happened just like that, baby
I've fallin' deep into

Oh girl, come on
I want you to take me there
Oh, I know, I know, I know, I know...

Come on, take me back, baby
I swear I've been with you
It happened just like that
Send me a dream or two
Come on take me back
Oh, deja vuback to top
Feelin'
Outta touch most of the time
Gotta lotta things on my mind
Kickin' down, where to start
It's the hardest thing
Oh...

Grow it long, shave it off
Life is hard, never soft
I need a change, I need it quick
Before it makes me sick
That's what on my mind

Pay attention, watch your back
Pay your dues, stay on track
Got no room to second-guess
Puts me under stress
Oh...
If I were you, you were me
I wonder who I'd wanna be
With just one wish you can't refuse
I wouldn't know what to choose

Feelin'...no, don't like what I've been told I'm feelin'
Feelin' what no one else will ever know I'm feelin'
Oh...

Now black is white and white is black
Got politicians smokin' crack
And John Paul's all bullet-proofed
It puts me through the roof
Yea...

I were you and you were me
I wonder who I'd rather be
If I had one wish I'd take it

Feelin'...oh, I don't like what I've been told I'm feelin'
And I'm seein'
What no one else will ever know I'm seein'
Come on, feelin'
Hey, I don't understand these things I'm feelin'
No...

Outta touch most all the time
Too many things on my mind
Shuttin' down, gotta stop this thing

Feelin'...no, I don't like what I've been told I'm feelin'
I'm bleeding...like no one else will ever know I'm bleeding
Dealin'...I'm dealin' with these things I'm feelin'
I'm dreamin', I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming things that show
me what I'm seein'
Seein'...I'm seein' things that I don't know I'm feelin'
I've been feelin', I'm feelin', I'm feelin' things that I
don't know
I don't know, I don't know what I'm feelin'
Hey, I don't understandback to top
