1. THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT

Late at night I've been knocking
On your door
Late tonight I'll be calling
You can be sure
I'll be waitin'
Standing in the shadows once again
Sneakin', creepin'
Howling like a tomcat once again

Oh there'll be nowhere you can hide
When I take you
On the other side of midnight

You know I don't love you
But I love what you can do
Some more of that hot persuasion
This town is just like you

Oh, there'll be nowhere you can hide
When I take you
On the other side of midnight
I'll be knockin'
The other side of midnight
I'll be callin'
The other side of midnight
Knock, knockin'
The other side of midnight

I'm gonna take you
I'm gonna take you
At midnight, at midnight

Late at night
I'll be knock knock knockin'
On your door
I said late tonight I'll be callin'
You can be sure
I'm gonna take you
Oh it's gonna hurt so good
I'm gonna make you do
What a bad girl should


2. STAY ON TOP

Everybody got somebody
Trying to make you feel real bad
Aint' none of your business
Talking but half too bad
Be strong of yourself
Stand up - walk away
Nobody gives a damn for a
Single thing you say

I'm singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Boy, you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Here comes the thunder

Hide money in your pocket
Be nobody's fool
Always think of number one
That's my golden rule
Take care of business
Go for a win at the best
Be strong enough to take it
Ain't no need to beg

I'm singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Boy, you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Watch out for the thunder

Bad times make it right
But the good times get too high
I can't stand it
I can't stand it no more

Somebody, everybody
Trying to make you feel real bad
Ain't nobody's business
Talkng but half too bad
Be strong of yourself
Stand up - walk away
Nobody's gonna listen
To a single word you say

I'm singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Boy, you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Look out for the thunder

Stay on top
You've got to stay on top
Stand up and sing it
Stay on top
Take care of business
Stay on top


3. LONELY NIGHTS

Will you risk your reputation
I don't know
You just don't know what you're saying
Anymore
You know beggars can't be choosers
And it's bad
We may win, we may be loosers
I don't care, no no no

Oh baby, I just can't stand
Another lonely night
So come on over and save me
Save me from another lonely night

I hear every word you're saying
They're all lies
But with every breath you're taking
You're thinking of a ways to say goodnight

Baby, I just can't stand
Another lonely night
So come on over and save me
Save me from another lonely night
Come on over
Come and save me


4. SWEET TALK

I see your face in
The magazine stand
I wanna hold you in the palm
Of my hands
I love everything about you
You're such a long way away

Your sweet talk
Ain't enough for me
I may be deaf, but you're
Too blind to see

You're gonna break my bones
With your feminine tongues
I don't wanna hear
Your sweet talk tonight
Not again tonight
When I call tonight
Don't wanna hear your
Sweet talk tonight

I hear your voice on the radio
It's got so bad I don't know
Which way to go
Why don't you wake up girl
You're such a long way away

Your sweet talk ain't enough, you see
I need a woman
‘Cause you're a woman to me


5. LOVE IS BLIND

I tried to give you love
That was ever flowing
I tried to give you love
That could be so true
But you wanted less
Than I had to offer
What was I to do
I tried to ????
I tried to promise dreams
That I would make come true
But you said that love was
A game for children
Here I stand, a fool

Love is blind
Blinded by love
You're all I can see in my eyes
My mind says, stop
But my heart says go
And oh, how it hurts to find
It still went to say that
Love is blind
Love is blind

I tell myself if there
Was a chance to show you
Just how a good love
If there could be
But love was that
You had never given
I just couldn't see
I close my eyes to all that
You never gave me
My heart didn't wanna see
How you played around
And how well you showed
How wounded love can be


7. RED LIGHTS

Red lights - on the highway
Head lights - blinding my eye
Red lights - keep me ready
White lights - drive me insane
Red lights - in the city
Street lights - hide in the night
Sunshine - im looking for someone
Red lights - young blood's alright

I can't keep away
No no no no way

Red lights - she knows what I'm here for
Head lights - look me in the eye
Red lights - are you looking for danger
White lights - drives me insane

I can't keep away
No no no no for one day

Red lights - no question
Street lights - uses her
Red lights - body desire
White lights - ???
Red lights - in the city
Street lights - shadow the night
Sunshine - if you need some one
Head lights- that young blood's alright

I can't keep away
Not today
She brings me to my knees

Red lights - I want you
Red lights - I need you
Red lights - you get too heavy
Red lights


8. ROLLIN' THE ROCK

Feels so cold, so alone
An empty stage, no one home
Feels so strange, susky
No point in screaming
I won't be hurt

You're so cold, you're so cool
It's so dark in this tomb

Time has come so soon
And time takes no prisoners
Except in the womb
There's no way out, no escape
This silence is deafening
I have to cry out

Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away

Set me free from this grief
Am I forgiven, can I be saved?
You've been so cold for so long
This silence is deafening
Was I so wrong?

This silence is deafening


9. STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART

You came on like an angel
I didn't see the evil in your eyes
I could see, but I was blinded
Oh, believed in lies

You hit we with your promises
You shot me, I fell to the ground
You're coming's on tomorrow
When I looked, you were
Nowhere to be found

You set me up right from the start
Strip me of my dignity
You got me straight through the heart
I never did stand a chance
You got me straight through the heart
You cut me and left me for dead

You promised me a heaven
Turned out to be but hell all the time
The truth that you're pretending
Was just a chorus of lies

You set me up right from the start
Strip me of my dignity
And got me straight through the heart
I never did stand a chance
You got me straight through the heart
You cut me and left me for dead
You cut me and left me for dead

You came on like an angel
Just like an angel
You set up

You got me straight through the heart
I never did stand a chance
Got me straight through the heart
You cut me, you left me
Straight through the heart
You never gave any chance
Got me straight throught the heart
I'm bleedin', you're leavin'
Got me straight through the heart


10. WEEKEND WARRIORS

Ten thousand stallions runnin' wild
They dare to race the devil's charm
The race is on, all thunderburn
They shed a weep of broken times

Wheels turnin', wheels burnin'
See the eagles fly
Weekend warriors

Like shining night
Of days gone by
They're born again
They'll never die

Wheels turnin', wheels burnin'
See the angels fly
Weekend warriors

Like silver lighting from the sky
These storm could horses thunderburn


11. PLAYING FOR TIME [Bonustrack]

Try, you get a roll of heartacche
Hear it and you're with my mind
I've played with fire, burned my fingers
Now I'm gonna take my time
You don't have to shout about it
Can't you see it obvious
Feel it's getting close to comfort
Why you make me search no more

Take your time with what you're doin'
I can see the stage appear
Seized and held it on before her
Don't you understand my fear
Can't you see the time will tell us
How it's gonna always be
You can wrap me around your finger
And that ain't no mystery

Playing for time
That's all I can do
I'm playing for time
Before I fall in love with you

You can push me every which way
Hey I got no place to pull
Yes we'll do no rule devotions
When you fax the ace ???
Hold on, that is what the games go
And I want the nibble now
You can get to dream about it
I won't do it anyhow

Playing for time
That's all I can do
Playing for time
Before I fall in love

Playing for time
That's all I wanna do
Playing for time
Before I fall in love

Break it off!

Oh you don't have to shout about it
Can't you see it obvious
Feel it's getting close for comfort
Why you make me search your bus
Travel down the road of heartache
Hear it in your with my mind
Played with fire, burned my fingers
Now I'm gonna take my time

Playing for time
Before I fall in love with you
Playing for time
That's all I want to do

Playing for time
Before I fall Playing for time
All I wanna do
Playing for time (vocal ad lib to end)


12. SEARCHING

(No lyrics available)


13. THE WIZARD (Live)

He was the wizard of a thousand kings
And I chanced to meet him one night wandering
He told me tales and he drank my wine
Me and my magic man kind of feeling fine

He had a cloak of gold
And eyes of fire
And as he spoke I felt a deep desire
To free the world of its fear and pain
And help the people to feel free again

Why don't we listen to the voices in our hearts
'Cause then I know we'd find we're not so far apart
Everybody's got to be happy
Everyone should sing
For we know the joy of life
The peace that love can bring

So spoke the wizard in his mountain home
The vision of his wisdom means we'll never be alone
And I will dream of my magic night
And the million silver stars that guide me with their light
