1. SHE'S SO FINE

It was early in the evening, I was waiting for a train,
I was thinking to myself as I watched the pouring rain,
I need love but I don't know where to get it

Then underneath this big umbrella she walked in the waiting room
I just had to tell her though it might have been too soon
I need love and I think I might have found it

She was some kind of priestess
With a black dress on
With her film star kind of features
She really turned me on

And if it takes until forever and a day
I've gotta make that woman mine
If I don't tell her then i'll wish my life away
She's so fine, she's so fine

I said don't misunderstand me
I didn't mean to make you blush
But when I got this feeling
I knew I had to rush
I need love, and you know I want to give it

I've been waiting for a lifetime
For a woman just like you
I know I'm walking on a fine line
But i've got to see it through

If I should pass away tonight while I'm asleep
At least i'll know I spoke my mind
I'm being driven by some other force that won't be denied
She's so fine

[Solo]

She's so fine

I've been waiting for a lifetime
For a woman like you
I know I'm walking on a fine line
But i've got to see it through, through

She's so fine,
She's so fine,
She's so fine
Ooh, I took one look at you baby,
Babe it feels so good inside
She's so fine,
Makes me feel good...


2. DIRTY LOVE

I see you walking by
You've got that far away look in your eye
It was only yesterday
Like a cheap suit you were all over me

I should know better by now my friend
Just what I mean to you
You've been running in and out of my life so long
I don't want nothing to do with you

I don't need your dirty love
I don't want you touching me
I don't want your dirty love it's enough
Trying to live with the memory

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

Chew me up spit me out
You turned my whole world inside out
There's a name for girls like you
You belong in the gutter, I know that you do
Baby i've had enough lies to last
The rest of my days on earth
So now you're gonna get what you deserve

I don't need your dirty love
I don't want you touching me
I don't want your dirty love it's enough

I know there ain't no way i'll stay
We were gonna break it up some day
And that day is now, baby I'm getting out
So don't you cry now sigh now
'Cos you've been living a lie now when I'm not around

[Solo]

I don't need your dirty love
I don't want you touching me
I don't want your dirty love it's enough
Trying to live with the memory

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

I don't need your dirty love

So get out, i've packed your bags,
I left 'em at the door
So get 'em out, start walkin'...


3. DON'T WAIT FOR ME

Now I look out of my window
To the street so far below
And I pray i'll see you approaching
Don't know why you had to go
It's been so long but I feel no better
I've got to say I'm still so alone
Will I ever get used to this feeling
And the nights so long and cold

When all I want to do is hold you
But all I seem to do is cry
And all you had to say the day you walked away
Was "don't wait for me, goodbye"

All my friends they smile when they see me
I guess they know what I'm going through
They don't mention your name to protect me
Now what am I supposed to do ?

When all I want to do is hold you
But all I seem to do is cry
And the last thing that you said it's ringing round my head
Was "don't wait for me, goodbye"

How can I replace you ?
How am I gonna get through every night?
All the time I wasted
All the pain I tasted for you
I'm losing my mind

[Solo]

Why do you have to go away, 'n' leave me like this darlin'
I can't stand it for another day

When all I want to do is hold you
But all I seem to do is cry
And the last thing that you said it's ringing round my head
Was "don't wait for me, goodbye"

Don't wait for me, don't wait for me, goodbye
I can't stand it no more
I can't stand livin', livin' without you


4. HIGHER GROUND

I feel the wind blow on the corner
And I'm looking down along this dead end street
All the people are getting older
But they don't give a damn their lives are incomplete

It don't look no better than it did before
And I know what's happening behind each closed door
If I don't get out today I'm gonna waste my life away
And that's a part that I can't play

I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town
I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground
We've got to steal away

As a young boy I didn't fit in
And I knew it then I wouldn't be the same
But that was only in the beginning
And as the time rolled on deeper grew the pain

So give me one good reason why I should stay
I think i've got enough money for the late night train
There's a world you've never seen
But i've been there in my dreams
It's calling out to me

I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town
I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground
We've got to steal away

[Solo]

If I don't get out today, I'm gonna waste my life away
I'm gonna waste my life away
And that's a part that I can't play

I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town
I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground
We've got to steal away

I don't wanna spend my whole life in this town
I can feel it driving me away
Baby you and me were meant for higher ground
We've got to steal away

You and me baby, we've got to steal away, turn it on, turn it on


5. UNTIL MY DYING DAY

I can see the fading sun, sinking at the edge of town
And it's one more day that's gone
I'm thinking 'bout the past, and the time that slipped away
But I can't change what i've done

Chasing after foolish dreams
I should've let go but I just can't seem to stop
I don't deserve your loving baby, I don't know why you stay

There's a child within the man, and it's keeping me keeping on
Yet you always understand
The future can't be planned, but I'm gonna keep fighting on
While i've still got two strong hands

Maybe i'll change someday
Maybe i'll chase those dreams away
I need you by my side now baby
'Cos you're the price that I won't pay

Girl you're only one to light a fire inside me
You're the only woman that can make me feel this way
I want to stay with you forever i'll never let you go
Until my dying day

[Solo]

Chasing after foolish dreams
I should've let go but I just can't seem to stop
I don't deserve your loving baby...I don't know why you stay

Hey baby you're the only one to light a fire inside me
You're the only woman that can make me feel this way
I want to stay with you forever i'll never let you go
Until my dying day
Until my dying day

I don't deserve your loving baby, I don't know why you stay
I need you by my side now baby, 'cos you're the price that I won't pay

I don't deserve your loving baby, I don't know why you stay
I need you by my side now baby, I don't know, I don't know


6. BACK STREET SYMPHONY

I was running late for a night downtown
Me and the boys gonna tie one down
So I took a short cut through an alleyway
And this sound just took my breath away

There she stood with just one guitar
Looking much too good to be in this bar
I tried to leave but my feet were lead
And the song she played just filled my head

'Cos when she sang out that melody
I heard a sound like a backstreet symphony
My senses sung my head was spun
As I walked through the door
I gotta hear some more

So I watched the show in a state of trance
Staying 'til the end waiting for a chance
To meet with her and make her mine
And keep her there 'til the end of time

When she unfolded that melody
I heard a sound like a backstreet symphony
My destiny had guided me through the bar room door
I gotta hear some more
I wanna hear some more

[Solo]

'Cos when she sang out that melody,
I heard a sound like a backstreet symphony
My destiny had guided me through the bar room door, through the door
I gotta hear some more,
I got to, got to, got to, got to hear some more
Backstreet love


7. LOVE WALKED IN

So tired of waiting I walked an empty land
I was looking for something to help me understand
But bad luck kept turning my dreams into sand

I didn't want pity, I had my share of friends
I wanted somebody more special than the rest
I was aching inside like I was approaching the end

Just about that moment the timing was so right
You appeared like a vision sent down to my life
I thought I was dreaming when I saw you that night

That's when love walked in through my door
That familiar feeling I had once before
Love walked in through my door
And it felt so strange...

It's hard to remember being on my own
That kind of loving makes a hard man lose control
But I sleep so much better now I'm not alone

So promise me baby you're always gonna stay
I don't think I could take it seeing you walk away
You don't need to doubt it I remember that day

That's when love walked in through my door
I found just what I want but I got so much more
Love walked in through my door
And it felt so strange
Like a long lost friend that hadn't changed
Giving me hope again

Love walked in
Love walked in
Love

[Solo]

Just about that moment the timing was so right
You appeared like a vision sent down to my life
I thought I was dreaming, when I saw you that night

That's when love walked in through my door
That familiar feeling I had once before
Love walked in through my door,
That familiar feeling I had once before
Love walked in through my door,
And it felt so strange
Like a long lost friend that hadn't changed, giving me hope again
Love walked in,
Love walked in, love, love walked in, love walked in


8. AN ENGLISH MAN ON HOLIDAY

Laying down in this Spanish bar
That last slammer hit me like a car
I've got the 6 a.m. Balearic blues
Can't even focus on my own tattoos
I had a fight with this German guy
I saw him give my little girl the eye
While he was trying hard to be so cool
I hit him with a stool

Oh yeah alright i'll be going all night
Gonna drink 'til they take me away
I'm an Englishman on holiday

Every year I get to do the same
I meet the boys and get on the 'plane
We like to sing and shout out "here we go"
'Cos they're the only words that we all know
We've got the loudest shirts you've ever seen
We're gonna take the beaches like a team
We've got so much duty free to drink
Enough to float a ship

Oh yeah alright
I'll be going all night
So light the paper, get out of the way
I'm an Englishman on holiday

We never look for trouble at the start
But it always comes our way
We've got our pride and we just can't walk away

[Solo]

This morning I woke up inside a cell
They dragged me screaming out of my hotel
I don't remember what it was I did
But i've got this drummer banging on my head
I've got to get out 'for I miss the 'plane
Next summer i'll be back again
I'll be fighting for the Union Jack
If they let me back

Oh yeah alright i'll be going all night
Gonna drink 'til they take me away
I'm an Englishman on holiday


9. GIRL'S GOING OUT OF HER HEAD

She was burning up with that white line fever
She said "tie me up" but I couldn't get near her
She was walking that fine line
Stumbling on the edge
Shaking like a leaf as high as a kite
I tried to leave her but she didn't want to say goodnight

The girl's going out of her head
She's going crazy
Girl's going out of her head
She don't want to stop

She said "life's a bitch living in the fast lane
But my Daddy's rich so I shouldn't complain
I've got money if you want it
So much I can throw it away"
Then she held a gun right up to my head
I could have run but I didn't want to taste the lead

The girl's going out of her head
She's going crazy
Girl's going out of her head
She don't want to stop

She's going crazy

[Solo]

She was walking that fine line,
Stumbling all over the edge
Shaking like a leaf as high as a kite
I tried to leave but she, but she, she didn't want to say goodnight

The girl's going out of her head
She's going crazy
Girl's going out of her head
She don't want to stop

The girl's going out of her head
She's going crazy
Girl's going out of her head
She don't want to stop

I said the girl's going out of her head,
The girl's going out of her head
The girl's going out of her head,
The girl's going out of her head
She's going crazy


10. GIMME SOME LOVIN'

Well my temperature's rising and my feet are on fire
Twenty people knocking 'cos they're wanting some more
Let me in baby I don't know what you've got
But you'd better take it easy this place is hot

I'm so glad we made it, I'm so glad we made it
You've got to gimme some lovin', gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin' everyday

Well I feel so good everything is sounding hot
Better take it easy 'cos the place is on fire
Been a hard day and I don't know what to do
Wait a minute baby it could happen to you

I'm so glad we made it, I'm so glad we made it
You've got to gimme some lovin', gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin' everyday

Well I feel so good everybody's getting high
Better take it easy 'cos the place is on fire
Been a hard day and nothing went to good
Now I'm gonna relax honey, everybody should

I'm so glad we made it, I'm so glad we made it
You've got to gimme some lovin', gimme some lovin'
Gimme some lovin' everyday


11. DISTANT THUNDER

Every morning I wake up
And I switch the TV on
I like to watch the world go by
From the safety of my home
News is looking bad today
Like it always seems to be
I can't believe I'm so unmoved
By the violence that I see

It's a fact of life
But I can't cry anymore
'Cos it happens all the time

I hear the sound of distant thunder
It's coming closer every day
Soon there'll be lightning crashing to the ground
Feels like the end's not far away

As we race towards the future
We're not learning from the past
From the minefields of excess
You can hear the devil laugh
He can see what's going on
'Cos he knows the signs too well
It won't be long before we meet
On the road that leads to hell

In the wink of an eye
A hundred years will pass
So there's no time left to lie

I hear the sound of distant thunder
It's coming closer every day
Soon there will be lightning crashing to the ground
Feels like the end's not far away

[Solo]

In the wink of an eye
A hundred years will pass
So there's no time left to lie

I hear the sound of distant thunder
It's coming closer every day
Soon there will be lightning crashing to the ground
Feels like the end's not far away

It feels like the end's not far away

I can hear the sound of distant thunder, it's coming closer every day
I can feel it, can you feel it
I can hear the sound, the sound of distant thunder
I can feel it, can you feel it
I can feel it, I can feel that thunder crashing down
