High Wire
Standin' here, I got my eye on you
Your story bleeds, but there's no review
Honey drip and set my soul on fire
Stealin' hearts got me walkin' the wire
You're gonna lose control
All night long
When I find my love, love, love
High wire

Flash a smile, like a shiny blade
Everyone there thinks ya got it made
Sorry, child, can you take me higher
But you keep me hangin' on your lonely wire
You're gonna lose control
All night long
When I find my love, love, love
High wire

(Solo)

Oh, feels so good
You give me lovin' like no one could
You turn me child, inside out
Still you leave me drownin' in a sea of doubt

You're gonna lose control
All night long
You're gonna steal my soul, mama
You can't go wrong
When I find my love, love, love
High wire

Love, love, love
Oh, sweet child, I know where you come from now
High wire, baby
Oh, oh, oh
 
 
Dreams in the Dark
I remember you baby
Like a sweet summer song
Said you'd love me forever
Nothing ever go wrong
Time's gone by
I'm just a memory scarred
I'm lost in a shadow
Don't know where you are

'Cause yesterday's gone
Dreams carry on
Will you return my way, oh

Sing me a sweet, sweet song
Turn out the lights and my love will burn on and on
Hold me until tomorrow
Dreams in the dark
Dreams in the dark

You pushed me, baby
A little too far
Turned your back on my lovin'
Lick my wounds in the bars
Story's been told
And a lesson is learned
I know where your love lies
And I know where you burn

'Cause yesterday's gone
Dreams carry on
Will you return my way, no

Sing me a sweet, sweet song
Turn out the lights and my love will burn on and on
Hold me until tomorrow
Dreams in the dark

Baby, I know that you're leavin'
It's over, it's over, I know
Now that my heart now is bleedin'
Don't know which way to turn, oh

(Solo)

Sing me a sweet, sweet song
Turn out the lights and my love will burn on and on
Hold me until tomorrow
Dreams in the dark

Sing me a sweet, sweet song
Turn out the lights and my love will burn on and on
Hold me until tomorrow
Dreams in the dark
Dreams in the dark

Dreams in the dark
Oh, oh, oh
 
 
Jade's Song
(Instrumental)
 
 
Winter's Call
Fall leaves have changed their color
Winter's on its way
I'm lookin' for the sunny part of town
And leaving on, I hear the wicked cold winds call me
They say, don't fly away

Ooh, oh, oh, ah-ha, ha
Drink the warm wines
Feel the heat from a fire's blaze
You take a long walk in those lonely winter days
You hear her cry out in the cold baby hold me, hold me
Don't fly away
Ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Winter's cold winds call me
Gonna leave it all behind
Summer breezes fill my mind, fill my mind
Oh, yes they do now

Winter's cold winds call me
Gonna leave it all behind
Summer breezes fill my mind, fill my mind

All your love is what I need from you
All your love is gonna keep me warm through the winter's storm
I give it to you baby
Give it to me now mama

Winter's cold winds call me
Gonna leave it all behind
Summer breezes fill my mind, they fill my mind

All your love is what I need from you
All your love is gonna keep me warm through the winter's storm
I give it to you baby
I give it to you now mama
Give it to you baby
All you love, oh, stick it

(Solo)

All your love is what I need from you
All your love is gonna keep me warm, so warm
All your love is what I need from you
All your love is gonna keep me warm through the winter's storm
I give it to you, baby
Give it to me now, mama
I give to you, baby
Give it to me now, baby, oh ah

All your love, all your love, all your love, all your love
I need it from you baby (all your love)
Give it to me now mama (all your love)
All your love, all your love
Give it to me now, baby
Give it to you now, mama
All your love, all your love
All your love, all your love
Love, oh
It's what I need from you baby
 
 
Dancing on the Edge
Living on the moonshine
It's the season and I'm insane
Living on the moonshine's a crazy scene
Laughing through the morning sunshine
Rollin' in the rain is all I need, it's all I need

Ridin' on the wings of thunder
Blinded by a full moon's light
I'm runnin' like a river full of hunger
Oh, I'm dancin' on the edge tonight

Oh, mama says it's alright
But I'm leaving it all behind
If mama says it's all right, it's fine with me
Runnin' through a distant thunder
In a summer's rain is all I need, it's all I need

Ridin' on the wings of thunder
Blinded by a full moon's light
I'm runnin' like a river full of hunger
Oh, I'm dancin' on the edge tonight

(Solo)

Ooh, livin' on the moonshine
It's the season and I'm insane
Livin' on the moonshine's a crazy scene
I'm never, never, never looking back on my time
Gotta keep on movin'
Do you know what I mean
You know what I mean

Ridin' on the wings of thunder
Blinded by a full moon's light
I'm runnin' like a river full of hunger
Oh
 
 
Streets Cry Freedom
In the coldness of the city
Where the neon sleeps
The streets show the pity
And the nights run deep
And every shadow seems to hold a hidden story
And every heart, oh, is a refugee

And the old ones hope
And the lost ones scream
The hustlers float
And the young ones dream
In the city
Livin' in the soul of the city

And the streets cry freedom
Do you stand or retreat
As you stare by the neon gods above
While you bask in the heat

And the streets cry freedom
As the blood runs cold
As you stare into the eyes of the walking ghosts
Who've lost their souls

In the summer's heat I'm weary
In the soul of the city
Potential's burning bright
In the Harlem halls
Have you ever lived looking down a shotgun barrel
When they said hey boy, this ain't your home

There ain't no cure for the bleeding heart
'Cause when you fall
There's no second start in the city
There'll always be the soul of the city

And the streets cry freedom
As it burns in the heat
As you stare by the neon gods above
While you bask in the heat

And the streets cry freedom
As the blood runs cold
You stare into the eyes of the walking ghosts
Who've lost their souls

(Solo)

There is no reason
For livin' in sin
I don't believe when they say hey boy, you better give in
You know I'll fight for what I know
Till the day that I die
'Cause I'm better off dead
Then buried along with my pride

And the streets cry freedom
Till the day that I die, yeah
Till the day that I die
And the streets cry freedom
Till the day that I die, yeah
Till the day that I die, yeah
Till the day that I die
Till the day that I die, die, die, die, die,oh
Streets cry freedom

Potential's burning bright

Ohhh, oh
Till the day that I die
Till the day that I die
Till the day that I die
Till the day that I die
 
 
Hard Driver
Tearing down the highway lines
It's a fever that I know
Tonight my burning bridges light the skies
The engine screams for murder
And tonight we're gonna bleed
Pushin' the limit through
On a red light rocket ride

The wheel's on fire, but it's alright, alright
They're gonna burn for me tonight

Hard driver, ridin' alone
'Cause there's no lookin' back
And you're never comin' home
Hard driver, you're on your own
Give it all, hard driver

Turn the ship into the wind
Let the engines roar
Curse the gods and let the metal cry
The eyes of total madness
Are the windows to the soul
You'd be a fool to stop on the edge of lost control

The wheel's on fire
But it's alright, alright
They're gonna burn for me tonight

Hard driver, ridin' alone
'Cause there's no lookin' back
And you're never comin' home
Hard driver, you're on your own
Give it all, hard driver

(Solo)

Ohh
Ohh

Hard driver, ridin' alone
'Cause there's no lookin' back
And you're never comin' home, yeah, yeah
Hard driver, you're on your own
Give it all hard driver
Give it all hard driver
And there's not looking back
'Cause you're never coming home
 
 
Rumblin' Train
Just a poor boy
Scratch my back on a razor's edge
This razor's edge I call my home
Keep my thoughts inside myself
Down where they're born and bled
I'll probably die by the fire I breathe
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I said

In my mind this crazy boy is a runaway train
No one's gonna steal my soul
I'll bite the bullet no more
In my heart this crazy boy is a rumblin' train
Look out babe 'cause here I come
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rumblin' train, train

Hmm

The devil's river's runnin' wild in my veins
It kills my mind but feeds my soul
Every night a dirty lady in a different bed
I keep on playin' these hard on games
But I got more in my head

In my mind this crazy boy is a runaway train
No one's gonna steal my soul
I'll bite the bullet no more
In my heart this crazy boy is a rumblin' train
Look out babe 'cause here I come
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rumblin' train

Rumblin' bad boy, bad boy on down
Rumblin' train
Rumblin' train, train, train, train, train
Ma, ma, ma, ma, oh yeah

Woo

(Solo)

Look out
Duck
Rumblin' train, rumblin' bad boy, bad boy on the line
Rumblin' train, rumblin' bad boy, on the line, alright

Crazy boy is a rumblin' train
Crazy boy is a runaway train
Crazy boy's on a permanent ride tonight, yeah, yeah, yeah
Crazy boy is a rumblin' train
Crazy boy is a runaway train
Crazy boy's on a permanent ride tonight
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Smokin'
 
 
Devil's Stomp
I needed time to think things over
To heal my soul and ease the pain
And through a glass, a revelation
I could swear I heard the darkness call my name

Imagination's running for too long, oh yeah
The mind we lost can read the senses wrong

I need a shot of realization
I can't believe the things I've seen
'Cause down the bar sat the devil man
As he turned around and smiled and he said to me

He said, hey boy, I know what you're looking for
It feels so good to be so bad
Just take a chance, step through my open door
Lord

Now boy, I know you're oh so young
And the whole world shines in front of you
But I can give you anything you want
And I'll make it so easy for you

All I know is what my mama told me
All I know is what she said
When Beelzebub is sneakin' up on you
You best be dancin' on his head, yeah

Lord, do the devil's stomp
Oh, he made it sound so good
Stealin' my soul every way
The devil's price hangs on my soul
Throw a pocket full of gold his way

All I know is what my mama told me
All I know is what she said
When Beelzebub is sneakin' up on you
You best be dancin' on his head, yeah

Lord, do the devil's stomp
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

(Solo)

Oh, words that'll simmer
Like the moonlight house
Oh, feels so good, you know to be so bad
You know, been holding back, baby, for much too long
And I feel it creepin' right in my bones
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, Lord
Lord, do the devil's stomp
Do it
 
 
Seasons
I know it's late, and the evenings gently giving ground
Shadows remain of the words that were never spoken
All the years that we once held in our hands
Just leave us to wonder
Still the winds are changing all the time
But I know it's too late
The seasons all gone by, oh, whoa
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Seasons can wait 'till a thousand years have come and gone
Stories we wrote
All the days that were never counted
Time alone
All the dreams we thought would never die
But then there's tomorrow
For these dreams will save our lonely times
But I know it's too late
The seasons all gone by, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Hear the crashing sound as time slips away
Feel the thunder ride the road
Wearing this chain on my hands that I'm sure to bare
Oh, love rain on you forever more, oh

Oh, listen

I know it's late, and the evening's gently giving ground
Shadows remain of the words that were never spoken
Though I dream
Sometimes dreams are all I know

Leave us to wonder
Though the winds are changing all the time
But I know it's too late
The seasons all gone by, oh, whoa

But I know it's too late
The seasons all gone by, oh, oh, oh

But I know it's too late
The seasons all gone by
Oh, feels so good, oh
And you feel so good, oh, oh

And things must change
Oh, for the center is now, oh
You can feel a change
There's something in ya all
You just don't know
Listen
Oh, oh
But I know it's too late
The seasons all gone bye
 
 
Ball & Chain
Alright
Hey now won't ya listen
About a tale of a heartbreak queen
The kind of girl that makes Bogie fall
On a late night movie screen

She wraps a look around ya
Turns a wise man to the fool
Lord, save my soul
'Cause I feel like I'm fallin' through
I said yeah, alright

Gimme that ball and chain now

I hear the sound of sweet and rumble
Every time that she walks on by
Your song keeps burnin' in my ears
Makes me wanna crawl deep inside

Sweet jesus, it gives me trouble
Something I don't understand
The girl has got a chain around my heart
Help me, jesus, to the promise land
Alright, alright

Gimme that ball and chain now
Oh, oh, shine
Oh, oh, oh, fall Angelica, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Before too long I know
You'll be back in my arms before too long
Lord, save me now

(Solo)

Sweet sound of mercy
Such a hard woman to know
Her freedom flies like a golden bird
It's makin' me lose control
All I know is that I love her
Sweet jesus, hear my plea
All I know is that the heartbreak queen
Is taking a piece of me, of me, of me
Alright, alright

Gimme that ball and chain now

Gimme that ball and chain now
Alright
Well, gimme that ball and chain, yeah
Ooh, oh, yeah
