Survivor : Premonition

Lyrics

1. CHEVY NIGHTS

When trouble's on my mind, I like to reminisce
It was a simpler time, on just a night like this
We were so new to love, we'd educate a guess
I taught you all I knew, and you filled in the rest

[Chorus:]
And I said oh
Those were heavy nights
We were revin' up, those Chevy nights with you
And I said ooh, near the levy site
It was me and you and Chevy nights
Those heavy nights with you

September nights were cool, but though the streets were hot
Perhaps the memories, add mystery to the plot
But deep within my soul, I'm glad the times have changed
As long as rock and roll, and the Chevy's stay the same

[Chorus]


2. SUMMER NIGHTS

Girl it always seems about September
That's the time, again I remember the lights
And all the fun of those summer nights
Young and innocent and livin fast
Didn't know enough to know
That a summer love can't last
Can't last

(Do you remember those)
Summer nights all night
Dancin in the light of love
(Dancin in the light of love)
Summer nights so right
Couldnt last beyond September
Summer nights all night
Livin for your love,
Dreamin only of
You and summer nights

I remember playin by the shoreline
Before the fall when we had it all at our fingertips
Buildin castles in the driftin sand
Raced the waves as they ran to the shore
But the tides were turned for ever more
And the things we planned
Were castles made of sand

(Do you remember those)
Summer nights all night
Dancin in the light of love
(Dancin in the light of love)
Summer nights so right
Couldnt last beyond September
Summer nights all night
Livin for your love,
Dreamin only of
You and summer nights

Oooh summer nights
We were diamonds in the rough in the moonlight
Oooh summer nights
Now I'm out in the cold again
Back on my own again

(Well I remember those)
Summer nights...


3. POOR MAN'S SON

Baby if you really love me
You had better understand
That the silver in your pocket
Ain't no measure of a man
And though the fortunes of our fathers
We aspire to rise above
When you're born into a breed
You're signed in blood

I'm a poor man's son, workin all night long
Got a bad guitar and a simple song
you're a rich man's daughter, look at what you've done
You went and fell in love with a poor man's son
Baby you were born in splendor
To a house of wealth and fame
Your mother was a spender

And you grew up on a stage
And girl you could've loved for money
Could've fooled around for fame
But you went and took a chance
On the real thing

And though the fortunes of our fathers
We aspire to rise above
When you're born into a breed
You're signed in blood
I'm a poor man's son, workin all night long
Got a bad guitar and a simple song

You're a rich man's daughter
You're a rich man's daughter

I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son
(Poor man's son, workin' all night long)

I'm a poor man's son
A poor man's son
(Poor man's son, workin' all night long)

I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son
(Poor man's son, workin' all night long)

I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son
(Poor man's son, workin' all night long)

I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son
(Poor man's son, workin' all night long)

I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son
(Poor man's son, workin' all night long)

I'm a poor man's son
I'm a poor man's son


4. RUNAWAY LIGHTS

Fly above the hills and valleys
High above the streets and alleys
On a home bound flight I carry
Love enough for one
My emotions overflowing
Anticipation growing
And the moment still not knowing
Seems to weigh a ton

And those scenarios
They spin in my mind
They drift, like the clouds
They sail through the night

[Chorus:]
And when I see those runway lights
In the town that I was born
I say a silent prayer you'll still be there
And as my plane is touching down
Will I still belong in the arms that held my life
Or have I stayed away to long

I see your face in midnight driftings
By my side I hear your heartbeat
Closer still I hold your memory
Precious in my mind

In the life that I've been chasing
So much times been wasted
I know I could be tasting
The love I left behind

And those scenarios
They spin in my mind
They drift, like the clouds
They sail through the night

[Chorus]

And those scenarios
They spin in my mind.....

[Chorus]


5. TAKE YOU ON A SATURDAY

You were hitching a ride
When I took you inside
You were trembling
Out in the rain,
Just a face with no name
In the cold
And you cling to my side
Like a desperate child
As the thunder crashed high above
Well now the storm is behind us
It's time for some love

Gonna

[Chorus:]
*Take you on a Saturday
Loving you til Monday morning
Take you on a Saturday
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting, yeah!

Now I don't know your past
And I don't know your last situation
All I know is the way that you feel
In my arms, ooh, my arms

And your body so sweet
And I'm feeling your heat
And this heart's got no time to lose
So hold on tight babe
I'm makin my move

[Chorus]

And my love will flow like a river
And in gentle waves,
We'll come and go like the sea
And the feeling is making me shiver, oh yeah
A weekend of love
Then it's back to the world, oh yeah

[Chorus] (x2)


6. LIGHT OF A THOUSAND SMILES

When I would concentrate with all my might,
I could imagine
I would imagine,
That I was standing in the spotlight
And if I close my eyes, very tight
A crystal vision,
A premonition
Would find me shining underneath those hot lights

And I'd daydream in school
With faraway eyes
Living the words of the radio songs
Making my plans
Someday to take the stage
With a rock and roll band*

And I would play in the light of a thousand smiles
(And the sound would be heard for a thousand miles)
Spreading through the towns and fields of America
America?

And I would demonstrate, every night
My plan of action,
The crowd reaction
I'd have em standing, in the front row

With my air guitar, and only my imagination
We'd rock the nation
The main attraction,
In the rock and roll show

And I'd daydream in school
With faraway eyes
Living the words of the radio songs
Making my plans
Someday to take the stage
With a rock and roll band*

And I would play in the light of a thousand smiles
(And the sound would be heard for a thousand miles)
Spreading through the towns and fields of America
America?

And time goes by some grew weary
It's hard to keep that dream alive
Oh alive
But love and music, keep me going
I know that somehow I'll survive
Ooh I'll survive

And I'd daydream in school
With faraway eyes
Living the words of the radio songs
Making my plans
Someday to take the stage
With a rock and roll band*

And I would play in the light of a thousand smiles
(And the sound would be heard for a thousand miles)
Spreading through the towns and fields of America
America?


7. LOVE IS ON MY SIDE

So strange when lovers change their mind
To realize the joy left foolishly behind
I feel secure down in my soul

(Somehow I know)
I know that love is on my side
(Deep down I know)
I know that love is on my side
I'm gonna win, yeah

Some nights I slip into the past
To better understand why two hearts never last
I just don't know why nights so tender turn so cold

(Somehow I know)
I know that love is on my side
(Deep down I know)
I know that love is on my side
I'm gonna win, yeah

Walk on, through the night
it's all just a game she plays so well
In time, I know the tide will be turnin
And she's gonna learn
Shine a light, shine it bright
And time, will testify I know

I know That


8. HEART'S A LONELY HUNTER

There's a fog upon the skyline
Clouds my view
And the city's cold and lonely
Without you

And so I set out upon the highway
Bound to leave your memory behind
And the praire wind it chills me to my bone
And the hearts a lonely hunter all alone
And the fields are rollinâ softly
Across the plane

And my eyes can see forever
Through the pourinâ rain
I could have sworn I heard your sweet voice callinâ
Bout a mile past the county line
It was only just an echo, in my soul
And the hearts a lonely hunter all alone

Drivinâ, past the state line
Change my state of mind
Suddenly a free born man
Headinâ, for a small town turn
Turn my life around

No one has to understand
Without a past, to tie me
To my shadow
And to the last, I'll run my life
Alone, alone
Now the sun is beatinâ, softly

On my skin
And at last I feel emotion
Beating deep within
And for the first time I know for certain
I can leave that girl behind

And I cast a giant shadow as I roam
And the hearts a lonely hunter,
Hearts a lonely hunter
The hearts a lonely hunter

All alone
All alone
When you're all alone
All alone
When you're all alone
