1. WHERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD

Somewhere some girl is crazy
And some boy's half out of his head
Somewhere somebody's fearless
And someone won't wind up dead
Somewhere two hearts are pounding
And they don't care what's correct
Somewhere somebody's fallin' in love
Without a background check...

Son, I'm Mr P.C.
Beleive you and me
I'm the ultimate king of correct
And if you wanna make it
You gotta make her take it
As a sign of your deep respect
If you're gonna do it
You gotta see through it
To the heavenly trust that it is
Then you can call her a slut
And you can call her a slave
Just remember to call her Miss...

Where the rubber meets the road
Welcome to protection mode
Used to be sex was a fine hello
Now the rubber meets the road

Ya say "Girl, you're a beauty
But I'm no beast
I got a little contract right here
See, you can slam on the brakes
Anytime you got the stick
Even if we're in fourth gear"
Cop in the front seat
Lawyer in the back seat
Gettin' it on videotape
Got a shrink in the bed
Lord, sittin' on the headboard
Swearin' that we both got raped...

Where the rubber meets the road
Welcome to protection mode
Used to be sex was a fine hello
Now the rubber meets the road
Where the rubber meets the road
Boy meets Girl then watch it explode
Yes means no means yes means no
Where the rubber meets the road!

Somewhere some girl is crazy
And some boy's half out of his head
Somewhere somebody's fearless
And someone won't wind up dead
Somewhere two hearts are pounding
And they don't care what's correct
Somewhere somebody's fallin' in love
Without a background check
Somewhere somebody's fallin' in love
Without a background check

Where the rubber meets the road
Welcome to protection mode
Used to be sex was a fine hello
Now the rubber meets the road
Where the rubber meets the road
Boy meets Girl then watch it explode
Yes means no means yes means no
Yes means no means yes means no
Yes means no means yes means no
Where the rubber meets the road
Where the rubber meets the road!...

Somewhere some girl is crazy
And some boy's half out of his head
Some where there's just the moment
Where all remains unsaid
Somewhere two hearts are pounding
And they don't care what's correct
Somewhere somebody's falling in love...


2. I'D LIE FOR YOU (ANT THAT'S THE TRUTH)

I'd never tell you one lie, I'd never let you down
I'd never leave, I'd be the one who'd always be around
Baby give me a chance

I'd pull the sun out from the sky to light your darkest night
I wouldn't let one drop of rain fall down into your life
Put your heart in my hands

Believe me baby, I could never do you wrong
And I would never paint your world blue
And if sometimes it seems I must have lost mind
I might be crazy but I'm crazy about you...

I'd lie for you and that's the truth
Do anything you want me to
I'd even sell my soul for you
I'd do it all for you
If you'd just believe in me

Just take a look in my eyes, you'll see a love that's blind
Just take a hold of my hand, I'll take you to paradise
Ain't a star that's too far

Your every wish will be a wish that I will make come true
And if you want the moon I swear I'll bring it down for you
Let me into your heart

Believe me baby got your name carved on my soul
You're the only one that I'll give it to
Go let 'em say that I'm I fool to act this way
'Cause if I'm crazy, I'm just crazy 'bout you...

I'd lie for you and that's the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I'd walk across the fire for you
I'd walk on the wild for you
If you'd just believe in me...

And you will never see a day I'll ever break your heart
You'll see the sky fall down before it ever gets that far
I'll show you heaven every second that you're in my arms
Baby I'm crazy, but I'm crazy about you!

[Instrumental bridge]

I'd lie for you and that's the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I'd walk across the fire for you
I'd walk on the wild for you
If you'd just believe in me

I'd walk across the wild for you
Move mountains if you want me to
I'd walk across the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to

I'd lie for you and that's the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I'd even sell my soul for you
I'd do it all for you
If you'd just believe in me

I'd lie for you and that's the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I'd walk across the fire for you
I'd walk on the wild for you
If you'd just believe in me...
I'd lie for you and thats the truth


3. ORIGINAL SIN

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones 'till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking, then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin...
You can dance forever, you've got a fire in your feet
But will it ever be enough?
You know that it'll never be enough
You can fly and never land and never need to sleep
But will it ever be enough?
You know that it'll never be enough
It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
It's not enough to make the tears run dry
It's not enough to live a little better every day
Everything that they taught us, was nothing but lies
Everything that they brought us, was nothing but bribes
But the lies are over now
All I wanted was a piece of the night
I never got an equal share
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight!...

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones 'till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking, then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin
You can lose yourself in pleasure 'till your body's going numb
But will it ever be enough?
You know that it'll never be enough
You can always take whatever you conceivably could want
But will it ever be enough?
You know that it'll never be enough
It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
It's not enough to make the tears run dry
It's not enough to live a little better every day
Everything that they taught us, was nothing but lies
Everything that the brought us, was nothing but bribes
But the lies are over now
All I wanted was a piece of the night
It never had to get so dark
When the stars are out of sight
And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight!

I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones 'till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking, then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin

I've been looking for the ultimate crime
Infinite victims, infinitesimal time
And I'm so very guilty for no reason or rhyme
So now I'm just looking and I'm killing some time
Endlessly searching for the ultimate crime
I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones 'till they've all been done in
Now I'm just looking, then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin...
I'm applying for a license to thrill
Going out on the edge
Moving in for the kill
And there'll be hell to pay someday
So put it all on the bill
'Cause we'll always be paying
And paying until
We're beyond expiration
With a license to thrill
(I've been looking for an original sin...)


4. 45 SECONDS OF ECTASY

[Vocals by Susan Wood]
45 Seconds of ecstacy
Oh, how it comes right back to me
Fly so high and feel so free
45 seconds of ecstacy

45 seconds of ecstacy
Cuts right through the compelxity
When I feel him right next to me
45 seconds of ecstacy


5. RUNNIN' FOR THE RED LIGHT (I GOTTA LIFE)

Madder than a mad man and bored to the core
Minute hand crawling, can't take it anymore
Future's up the highway, I gotta get away
Gonna take a little trip and find a Tijuana stray

I got the time to take it
I got the balls to break it
Gotta car that'll make it
South of the border
Don't drink the water

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin' for the red light
Oh senorita
Have two Tequila
Love seeker
Lord, the will is getting weaker
Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin' with the fever and runnin' for the red light
She ain't a teacher
She ain't a preacher
Just so close to holy that you're runnin' just to reach her

Time bomb is tickin', my head's about to burst
Need some personal attention or I swear I'm gonna rust
Gonna find a little place, no-one will tell you what to do
Tell her I'm a rebel, she says 'Yeah, without a clue'

Just need some understanding
A girl who ain't demanding
Who ain't afraid to fake it
South of the border
Don't drink the water

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin' for the red light
Oh senorita
Have two Tequila
Love seeker
Lord, the will is getting weaker
Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin' with the fever and runnin' for the red light
She ain't a teacher
She ain't a preacher
Just so close to holy that you gotta run to reach her

Need some understanding
A girl who ain't demanding
A little bad behaviour
She's gonna be my saviour
My knees are shakin'
My back is breakin'
Oh mama mia
A' senorita

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin' for the red light
Oh senorita
Have three Tequila
Love seeker
Lord, the will is getting weaker
Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin' with the fever and runnin' for the red light
She ain't a teacher
She ain't a preacher
Just so close to holy that you're runnin' just to reach her

Gonna have a good time tonight
Crazy from the heat and runnin' for the red light
Oh senorita
Have some Tequila
Need sneakers
Lord, the will is getting weaker
Gonna have a good time tonight
Burnin' with the fever and runnin' for the red light
Just heard the bell, that got me outta hell
I got a girl, I gotta life...


6. FIESTA DE LAS ALMAS PERDIDAS

(No lyrics available)


7. LEFT IN THE DARK

You don't have to sneak in the door
Just come on into the room
I've been lying in our bed in the dark all alone
And I've been waiting, I've been waiting for you
There's been no reason to move
It's been as still as a tomb
I needed you oh so badly tonight
But I guess you had better things to do

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of his love in your eyes
And you still got his eyes on your mind
You swore you'd be with me at seven o'clock
Now it's a quarter to three
Well whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it for me
Whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it for me

I know that you love me
There's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body
So take off your dress
I just want to get at the truth

And there are so many things I just got to know
You tell me who!
You tell me where!
You tell me when!
Ah, but don't tell me now, I don't need any answers tonight
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
Left in the dark again...

I should have known that it was coming to this
But I must have been blind
I bet you still got a trace of his love in your eyes
And you still got his eyes on your mind
You swore you'd be with me at seven o'clock
Now it's a quarter to three
Well whatever you got and whoever it was
I guess you couldn't get it for me
No, I guess you couldn't get it for me

But down in my soul, down in my soul
I know that you love me
There's no need to talk
I see the look in your eyes and I got the proof
And there are no lies on your body
So take off your dress
I just want to get at the truth

And there are so many things I just got to know
You tell me who!
You tell me where!
You tell me when!
Ah, but don't tell me now, I don't need any answers tonight
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
I just need some love, so turn out the light, and I'll be left in the dark again
Left in the dark
[Spoken:]
Who made the very first move?...


8. NOT A DRY EYE IN THE HOUSE

Not a dry eye in the house
After love's curtain comes down
Listen and you'll hear the sound
Hear the sound of a heart breaking...

I can still see you standing there
Midnight wind blowin' thorough your hair, remember
Kisses sweet in the salty air
When love was forever

Turn the page and we fade to blue
The scen has changed, now I'm without you, well you just
Walked away when the act was through
And the dream was over

It was almost like a movie, the way you said goodbye
You must have spent a lot of time, rehearsing each and every line

Now there's not a dry eye in the house
After love's curtain comes down
Listen and you'll hear the sound
Hear the sound of a heart breaking, breaking
Not a smile left on my face
The ending's just too sad to take
And there's not a dry eye, not a dry eye in the house

The greatest story was you and me
We had it all, we had everything, but now the -
Story's done, it's just history
The last act is over

Your every line had the sweetest sound
Your every touch turned my whole world around
But then the lights cam up and my world crashed down
End of show - It's over

It was almost like a movie, those nights we touched the stars
Time stood still for you and I, now it's sad enough to make you cry

Now there's not a dry eye in the house
After love's curtain comes down
Listen and you'll hear the sound
Hear the sound of a heart breaking, breaking
Not a smile left on my face
The ending's just too sad to take
And there's not a dry eye, not a dry eye in the house

Act One: The story's just begun
Act Two: I fell in love with you
Act Three: Knew it was meant to be
Act Four: You don't love me no more...

Not a dry eye in the house
After love's curtain comes down
Listen and you'll hear the sound
Hear the sound of a heart breaking, breaking
Not a smile left on my face
The ending's just too sad to take
And there's not a dry eye, not a dry eye in the house

Not a dry eye in the house
After love's curtain comes down
Listen and you'll hear the sound
Hear the sound of a heart breaking, breaking...

Not a dry eye in the house
Not a dry eye in the house
Not a dry eye in the house


9. AMNESTY IS GRANTED

Love's an hourglass
It goes out wide the comes in closer
Time ticks away
Drifts away leaving empty sanded shoulders
Who said that love could last forever
Oh, I'm growing tired of feeling like I do
As we drift apart
Little secrets come between us
As we sail away
Feelin' comfort in the distance
You said that love would forever
Oh but neither one of us will ever surrender
There's a time
There's a place
A change of heart
About face
This is about love
It's about forgiveness
Tell me now, tell me like it is
You don't have to give
Amnesty is granted
What's done is done, for everyone
Come on bay let's start again right now
Amnesty is granted
You said that love would last forever
But neither one of us will ever surrender
There's a time
There's a place
A change of heart
About face
This is about love
It's about forgiveness

Tell me now, tell me like it is
You don't have to give
Amnesty is granted
What's done is done, for everyone
Come on bay let's start again right now
Amnesty, amnesty, amnesty is granted


10. IF THIS IS THE LAST KISS (LET'S MAKE IT LAST ALL NIGHT)

I know you're going
I know this is goodbye
And I can't make you stay no matter, no matter how I try
But ooh, if you're leaving
Please grant this one request, and leave my heart with some happiness

If this is the last kiss, let's make it last all night
If this is the last time I'm ever, ever gonna hold you
Let me hold you tight 'till the morning light
If this is the last time, ooh we'll ever be together
Kiss me and baby give me something tender to remember you by

If I can't be with you, ooh baby all my life
The next best thing is you next to me, all through the night
Pull all the shades down
Put your heart next to mine
Tonight give me a chance to feel heaven just one more time
And ooh, if you're leaving
Honey I'll set you free
Just leave my arms this one sweet memory

If this is the last kiss, let's make it last all night
If this is the last time I'm ever, ever gonna hold you
Let me hold you tight 'till the morning light
If this is the last time, ooh we'll ever be together
Kiss me and baby give me something tender to remember you by

If I can't be with you, ooh baby all my life
The next best thing is you next to me, all through the night

If this is the last kiss, let's make it last all night
If this is the last time I'm ever, ever gonna hold you
Let me hold you tight 'till the morning light
If this is the last time, ooh we'll ever be together
Kiss me and baby give me something tender to remember you by

Kiss me and baby give me something tender to remember you by


11. MARTHA

Operator, number please
It's been so many years
And she'll remember my old voice
While I fight the tears

Hello, hello there, is this Martha?
This is old Tom Frost
And I am calling long distance
Don't worry about the cost

It's been 40 years or more
Now Martha please recall
And meet me out for coffee where
We'll talk about it all

[Chorus:]
And those were days of roses
Poetry and prose and Martha
All I had was you and all you had was me
And there was no tomorrow's as we packed away our sorrows
And we saved it for a rainy day

And I feel so much older now
And you're much older too
Oh how's the husband and how's the kids?
You know that I got married too?

Oh lucky that ya found someone
To make you feel secure
Oh 'cause we were all so young and foolish
Now we are mature

[Chorus]

And I was always so impulsive
I guess that I still am
But all that really mattered then
Was that I was a man

I guess that our being together
Was never meant to be
Oh, but Martha. Oh Martha, I love you, can't you see...

[Chorus]

And I remember quiet evenings, trembling close to you...


12. WHERE ANGELS SING

Meet me downtown on the corner
I'll be waiting in a big old yellow cab
Don't bring a suitcase
You won't need a thing
There'll be no worries
Where angels sing

I got my ticket in my hand
Oh the price is paid in full
No man can stop me
Their words won't sting you
No dreams will haunt me
Where angels sing

I get so weary on this troubled road
Unlock these chains and gently rock me home
Beyond the clouds and the rain

Where angels sing
Where angels sing
Where lies can't hurt me
The flesh desert me
No in or out
No loss or doubt
No living with or doing without
Where money ain't the power king
And kindness is a most precious thing

Where angels sing
Where angels sing
Where time means nothing
No hustle
No-one rushing
No dark of night
No hate or spite
No wrong or right
No day or night
No town and no cities
There's no pain and no pity
Where hunger is no longer
And a good man just gets stronger

Where angels sing
Where angels sing
Where angels sing
Where angels sing
Where angels sing
Where angels sing...
