Lyrics

1. TEARS IN THE RAIN

We passed the point of no return
How can we make amends?
All alone I watch the candle burn
Burning at both ends
Nothing’s ever gonna change
Can tears wash away this pain

[Chorus:]
Tears in the rain
Here it comes again
I’ll never know the reason why
I cry these tears in the rain

The time has come to make a stand
We’ve waited much too long
Nobody’s gonna lead us by the hand
How could we be so wrong?
We lost the chance to play this game
Can tears wash away this pain?

[Chorus]

So many times I’ve wondered why
We still play this game

[Chorus:](x2)


2. SOMEBODY'S OUT THERE

Is it fate or random chance
How can I decide
Are we victims of circumstance
When destinies collide

All the odds are against you
But somehow you make it through
You can rationalize it away
But it all comes down to you
Half our lives we spend waiting
For the knock upon the door
When it comes, will it be
The one that I’ve been waiting for

[Chorus:]
Somebody’s out there, somewhere
Waiting for someone to come their way
Somebody’s out there, somewhere
I will somehow be somebody’s someone
Someday

Standing in the shadows
Hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness
And hold on for your life
All the fear of the future
All the loneliness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey
You can run but you can’t hide

[Chorus]

I can feel it inside me
I’ve been holding on so long
Something’s telling me something’s got to give
‘Cause the feeling’s way too strong
Too strong

Somebody’s out there, somewhere
Waiting for someone to come their way
Somebody’s out there, somewhere
I will make them mine

[Chorus]

(Somebody’s out there somewhere) (x4)


3. WHAT RULES MY HEART

I hate to say the feeling is gone
But every day I can’t keep holding on
I hope that’s something your heart will allow
I didn’t mean to do it
I should have known from the start
I never should’ve put you through it
Sometimes I just don’t know

What rules my heart
What rules my heart
What rules my heart
What rules my heart

Misleading you was such a crime
I know this hurt will heal in time
And I know that’s a small consolation right now
I didn’t mean to do it
I should’ve known from the very start
I never should’ve put you through it
Sometimes I just don’t know

What rules my heart
What rules my heart
What rules my heart
I need to know what rules my heart

Over and over again
I tried to tell you girl
I just don’t know, I just don’t know
What tore us apart

What rules my heart
What rules my heart
What rules my heart
What rules my heart

What rules my heart
What rules my heart, baby
Rules my heart
What rules my heart
What rules my heart


4. IF ONLY

If only I could change the world
With just a simple song
If only I could keep my words
From coming out all wrong
If only I could make you see
Another point of view
If only wishes would come true

If only once upon a time
Could be the here and now
If only make believe could make
Believers of us all
If only I could touch the dream
So deep inside of you
If only wishes could come true

If only, if only
Wishes would come true
If only, if only
I could get to you
Maybe we could make a wish come true

If only I could change your heart
With just a simple song
If only I could stop the world
From turning out all wrong
If only everybody wished
The same things that I do
There would be hope for me and you
If only wishes would come true x3

If only words could make you mine
Why do they seem so hard to find


5. HOOKED ON YOU

When I first tasted your love
I knew I’d never get enough
Cuz I’m hooked
Hooked on you
When you turn on your love light
You burn me, but it’s all right
Cuz I’m hooked
Hooked on you

Hooked on it
The fire that’s burning in your eyes
Hooked on it
I just can’t disguise
How I feel, what can I do
Hooked on you

You gave me just one look
And I swear that’s all it took
And I was hooked
Hooked on you
This heart is afflicted
My body is addicted
Yeah, it’s true
I’m hooked on you
Hooked on it, one touch of your hand
Hooked on it, I can’t understand
You don’t know what you put me through

Hooked on it (x4)


6. TAKE A STAND

Time is running out
Hear it ticking away
Future’s closing in
No reason to delay
Break the chains that hold you down, my friend
Don’t wait any longer
ind the answers deep inside yourself
They’re making you stronger

[Chorus:]
Take a stand
In the light
It’ll be alright tonight
Fire it up
Burn it bright
We can never give up the fight
We can make it all right
We can make it all right
We can make it all right, all right tonight

Clouds are rolling in
Hear the thunder in the distance
Lightning striking all around me
Breaks my resistance
The walls are crashing in
The storm begins to tear down the system
The house is coming down
It’s all around
It’s high time we listened

[Chorus]


7. JUST ONE NIGHT

I’ve always wondered
What it would be like
Just you and me baby
Nothing else
We meet again
Both of us by circumstance
Stay with me
We might never get the chance to

[Chorus:]
Hold on to love
Just one night
Don’t try to fight about it
Take me I’m yours
Just one night

I’m right about it
Don’t be alone don’t think
Of what we could have had
You’ll wonder why
You ever let this moment pass
You can’t deny
We see it in each other’s eyes
Close the door
Leave that empty world outside to

[Chorus] (x4)


8. EMBRUJO

(Instrumental)


9. PLAY WITH THE FIRE

I see the passion that burns in your eyes
And I feel the spirit inside of me rise
When it starts in me
In the heart of me
There’s a part of me burning tonight

When she calls to you
No matter what you do
She’ll be claiming you, taking you higher and higher

[Chorus:]
Playing with the fire
With a hunger that runs in your soul
Burning desire
Is taking you out of control
There’s no fighting it, no denying it
Something inside of us
Driving us closer tonight
Into the fire

Time marches on, but love never dies
The risks that we run will keep it alive
She’ll come again
Like a burning flame
And you can’t stop the pain of desire

When she calls to you
No matter what you do
She’ll be claiming you, taking you higher and higher

[Chorus]

Playing with the fire
With a hunger that runs in your soul
Burning desire
Is taking you out of control
There’s no fighting it, no denying it
Something driving us closer tonight
When it starts in you
In the heart of you
There’s a part of you that’s ready to play fire

Play with the fire (x2)


10. DON'T LOVE ANYBODY BUT ME

You can’t talk
Or I can beat my head against the wall
‘Cause that’d be just as easy
And I,
Can’t keep giving you it all
Not if you’re just gonna tease me
Now I don’t know how it’s supposed to be
But as long as you say that you’re in love with me darlin’

[Chorus:]
Please, don’t love anybody else but me
Don’t be waiting for some fantasy
Don’t love anybody else but me

I could ask
What it is that’s burning you inside
But then what would protect me
In the past I never had this much
Riding on the line
No, I can’t let you reject me
‘Cause no one else kept you this satisfied
And I’m not gonna wait for you
To read my mind so darlin’

[Chorus]

Why can’t I be your reality?
Don’t love anybody else but me

How could you do this to us?
Am I asking so much?
Don’t look at me like there’s
Nothing you can say
Don’t take our love and throw it all away

So you can talk
And then I can hold you in my arms
At least that’s what I’m hoping
But you don’t know
If we can undo the harm
You say there’s no way of knowing
But if you’re not asking me to set you free
And so long as you claim to be
In love with me, Darlin’

[Chorus]

Why can’t I be your reality?
Don’t love anybody else but me


11. IN THE MIDDELE OF THE NIGHT

Two broken people can never go back
They blame each other
For the things that they lack
They have no concept
Of the danger they’re in
There’s no accounting
For the wages of sin

You say that love is holding you down
I watch you walking away
I look for something that
Could turn this around
There’s nothing I could say

[Chorus:]
In the middle of the night, I’m calling
Can you hear me whisper your name
In the dying of the light, I’m falling
But it feels like the morning
May never be coming again
Never again

Under the table, under the gun
Under the influence
Of what we’ve become
Heavy consequences
For the things that we’ve done
We should have learned to walk
Before we started to run
Whatever happened to the love
That we had, I feel it slipping away
It started good but now but it’s ending
So bad, look at the price we pay

[Chorus]

Too many people
They walk in their sleep
Stepping on the promises that they ought to keep
Anesthetic people, they dance in a dream
But things are never quit as simple as they seem
You’re keeping all your secrets inside you
They’re gonna tear you apart
Let me come and lay down beside you
Open up your heart

[Chorus]
