Lyrics

1. EDGE OF A BROKEN HEART

I can't believe I could've been so blind, but love is strange
I thought about it for a long long time, but the truth remains
I don't need another lonely night to dry my tears
The answer's plain as black and white, and I can see the picture very clear

[Chorus:]
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
I don't wanna fall, I don't wanna crawl
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
Don't you wonder why I gotta say goodbye

It isn't like you never had the chance to change your tune
Did you think that I'm a dime a dance, well the dance is through
I been doing things your way too long, but baby that's over (baby that's over)
It won't be easy, but I gotta be strong
And if I wanna cry I don't need your shoulder

[chorus]
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
I don't wanna fall, I don't wanna crawl
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
Don't you wonder why I gotta say goodbye

I'll find someone else who's nothing like you
And who can play the game as well
And you're gonna be sorry baby - when it's over

[Solo]

I been doing things your way too long, baby that's over (baby that's over)
It won't be easy, but I've got to be strong
And if I wanna cry I don't need your shoulder

[chorus]
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
I don't wanna fall, I don't wanna crawl
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
Don't you wonder why I gotta say goodbye

I been living on the edge of a broken heart
I been living on the edge of a broken heart
Don't you wonder why I gotta say goodbye
I been living on the edge of a broken heart


2. I WANT YOU TO ROCK ME

It was Saturday night and I was feeling alright, I had nothing to lose
I threw the top down, then pulled into town, I had no time for the blues
When I pulled up and they were plugging it in, I was looking to find a seat
I met this guy, had a look in his eye, I swear he was saying to me

I want you to rock me, roll me, you won't get lonely
Come on and rock me, roll me, you oughta get to know me

When he grabbed his coat, he slipped me a note
It said, what are we waiting for?
Well guy, I'm sorry that we fooled around, I was looking for something more
Oh and he was shy, saying goodbye, he said "I really will give you a call"
Do I have to explain you're driving me insane
I'll tell you what I want you to do

I want you to rock me, roll me, learn to control me
Rock me, roll me, you really oughta get to know me
Come on rock me, roll me, I'm feeling kinda lonely
I want you to rock me, roll me, quit talking and show me

Rock me (X4)

[Solo]

Now it's your turn

I'm gonna rock you, roll you, do all the things I told you
I'm gonna rock you, roll you, sit down and I'll show you

(Rock me, roll me, rock me, roll me) - I want you to rock me
(Rock me, roll me) - I wanna roll you - (rock me, roll me)


3. CRYIN'

One look and I saw what I wanted to see, you know that you
Wrapped my heart around your finger so easily, yeah

With your centerfold body going through the moves
Why did I keep wasting the truth for you, tonight

[Chorus:]

I won't be cryin', cryin', when I think about you, 'cos I opened my eyes
And I won't be cryin', cryin', 'cos those days are gone, gone

Someone twisted you, so you gave it to me, yeah you gave it to me good
You're a nightmare everywhere, disguised as a dream

Well I got lost, wandering through the darkness in your maze of lies
Your trapdoor-way right into my insides, but tonight

I won't be cryin', cryin', when I think about you, 'cos I opened my eyes
And I won't be cryin', cryin'

The tears are falling to the floor, but you won't catch me cryin' anymore

[Solo]

[chorus X 3]

I won't be cryin', cryin', when I think about you, 'cos I opened my eyes
And I won't be cryin', cryin', 'cos those days are gone, gone



4. AMERICAN DREAM

One revolution turning around, grace under pressure, but don't make a sound
Our house is divided, but together we stand
One constitution goin' hand to hand

Here's to you, red and yellow, black and white
Once the daylight turned to night
We're not as bold as we may seem, we're looking for the American dream

Yes, American dream

Some people hiding, they do underground, sex as an issue in every dead town
Trading in secrets and dealing in lies
Living is easy when you close your eyes

[Chorus:]

Here's to you, red and yellow, black and white
Join the daylight, return to night
We're not as bold as we may seem, we're looking for the American dream
[Solo]

[chorus]

Here's to you, red and yellow, black and white
Once the daylight turned to night
We're not as bold as we may seem, we're looking for the American dream

Looking for the American dream, the American dream
And we're not as bold as we may seem, American dream
We're looking for the American dream... [to fade]


5. DESPERATE

There you go, walking away like you did before
But I know, I know you'll be back, back for more
And the game, the game will go on as it was
Nothing's changed, we'll know when we're closer to love

Chorus

Aren't we desperate, aren't we afraid
We're just two lost and lonely people, scared to be alone again
Aren't we desperate, aren't we afraid

Can't you see that there are no victims, just volunteers
We won't change, and we won't change until we faced our fears
We're alone, even though we are together right now
Love remains, just out of reach somehow

Chorus

Aren't we desperate, aren't we afraid
We're just two lost and lonely people, scared to be alone again
Aren't we desperate

I know we can make it, take up that look into my eyes
We'll take the future for you and I, yeah!

[Solo]

Chorus


Are we so desperate, oh are we afraid
We're just two lost and lonely people, scared to be alone again
Are we so desperate, aren't we afraid

Desperate


6. ONE NIGHT ALONE

I'll tell ya that I love you, if it makes everything alright
I just wanna hold you, I've got something to prove tonight
I'm tired of the telephone, can't you give me one night alone

I'm staring at your picture, I realize what you mean to me
Every single moment is burning deep in my memory
It doesn't matter what they say, our love's too good to throw it away
All we need is

Chorus

One night alone - just you and me, won't you give me
One night alone - 'cos that's all I need
One night alone – if you lovin' me

I wanna feel your heart beat in the darkness next to mine
I need to feel your heartbeat to know our love's still alive
The power of your tender touch, you know I waited long, long enough, for just

Chorus

One night alone - that's how it should be, all we need is
One night alone - just you and me
One night alone – if you lovin' me, yes you give me
One night, one night

This isn't the way two lovers live
This isn't the dream I wanna be living in, no no no

[Solo]

I'm tired of this telephone, can't you give me one night alone

Chorus

One night alone - just you and me, all we need is
One night alone - that's how it should be
One night alone – if you lovin' me, all we need is
One night, one night alone


7. HELL RAISERS

Watch out!

Have you heard the word on the street today
We're packin' out, it ain't your way, your way
Roll out the carpet, and kneel onto the ground
Shut off the party 'cos we're coming 'round

Step into the fire, we're here to stray for you
We're taking you higher, that's what we're paid to do

[Chorus:]

Hell raisers, from town to town, hell raisers never let you down
Hell raisers, steppin' out, hell raisers, let there be no doubt (no)

New York to London, Paris to L.A.
Rollin' thunder, 'cos storm is on the way - get ready
Pressure risin' as the last's goin' down
Pretty seats, we've come to rock this town

Step into the fire, we're here to stray for you
We're taking you higher, that's what we're paid to do

[chorus]

Hell raisers, from town to town, hell raisers never let you down
Hell raisers, steppin' out, hell raisers, let there be no doubt

[Solo]

Have you heard the word on the street today
We're packin' out, it ain't your way

[Chorus]

Hell raisers, from town to town, hell raisers never let you down
Hell raisers, let there be no doubt


8. LOVE MADE ME

Our conversation ends too soon, you grab your coat and you leave the room
My heart dissolves onto the floor, our world divides, we don't talk anymore

And I still remember when we first met, it was on a night like this
The moon was shining for you and me
When I stood alone, I'd be betrayed by your kiss

[Chorus:]

Love made me blind to the truth
Love made me crawl, I should've stood up to you
Love made me cry out your name
So what's so good about love when it hurts you this way

Cold lurking nights, in the days there were tears
They held us captive, and chained to our fears
Is this the dream you've been searching for
Is this the love that I don't want anymore

[chorus]

Love made me blind to the truth
Love made me crawl, I should've stood up to you
Love made me cry out your name
So what's so good about love when it hurts you this way


Somewhere in a scene you were holding me, we both never fade
But the hope it sounds on the battleground, nothing's gonna change

[Solo]

[chorus]

Love made me blind to the truth
Love made me crawl, I should've stood up to you
Love made me cry out your name
So what's so good about love when it hurts you this way


9. WAITING

You caught my eye and I will never be the same
I'm ready, I'm willing, I'm anxious to know your name

Could you be tempted to give me a chance
And a few other things I need to know: do you love and leave 'em
When you got them believin' that you'll never go

[Chorus:]

Oh you, you keep me waiting, waiting for you
Anticipating, what can I do
You keep me waiting, I never knew that I'd still be waiting

I wish you'd realize when we can convide
Ah tell me, please tell me, you wanna know what's really here inside
Is it love there in your eyes, or is it just a lie

[chorus]

Oh you, you keep me waiting, waiting for you
Anticipating, what can I do
You keep me waiting, I never knew that I'd still be waiting
Waiting for you

[Solo]

I see lyin' in your eyes, and now I realize that

You, you keep me waiting, waiting for you
Anticipating, think we're all through
You kept me waiting, I never knew that I'd still be waiting

You, you keep me waiting, anticipating
You kept me waiting, waiting for you


10. CRUISIN'

It was earlier tonight, you didn't wanna be alone
So you put on your best jeans, you picked up your phone
Then you called every club you knew, to find out what's going on
As you slipped in your car, the feeling came on strong

Chorus

You had to go cruisin' (cruisin'), you had to go cruisin' into wild times
Cruisin' (cruisin'), gonna ride out to the red light

You drove off in your fancy little car, you started headin' for the joy
And you got that feeling again that tonight could be so much more
You walked in looking for someone, for something to share
When you walked in, I was already there

Chorus

Cruisin' (cruisin'), cruisin' into wild times
I was cruisin' (cruisin'), gonna ride out to the red light

Can't you go any faster? - That's better

[Solo]

I think it's time, yeah it's time we broke the ice
You know that this sort of thing, is it already happen twice
I wanna rock, I wanna roll, I wanna eat into your soul
Just push into the litter, whenever you lose control

Chorus

Let's go cruisin' (cruisin'), I wanna go cruisin' into wild times
Let's go cruisin' (cruisin'), gonna ride it out to the red light


1. CHARMED LIFE

Got an angel on the left hand and a devil on the right
She's gonna raise a little hell up in heaven tonight
She likes the lightning run, but she never gets burned
She's got to be the center of attention, and she's never gonna learn

She's drivin' daddy's brand new car, she's usin' mama's master charm
She acts so nonchalant, but the girl gets everything she wants

[Chorus:]

Livin' a charmed life, everything's workin' out right
Livin' a charmed life, (you know) everything's workin' out right
You know she's livin', lovin', lovin', livin' - yeah yeah

Watch her come around at midnight, flying high up in the moon
She don't care about tomorrow, 'cos she was born with a silver spoon
Everything she's got gets the boys at heart
And she's got to be the center of attention, oh the girl can't stop

She's drivin' daddy's brand new car, she's usin' mama's master charm
She acts so nonchalant, but the girl gets everything she wants

[chorus]

Livin' a charmed life, everything's workin' out right
Livin' a charmed life, (you know) everything's workin' out right
You know she's livin', lovin', lovin', livin' - yeah yeah
She lives a charmed life, yes she does

[Solo]

She got her daddy's brand new car, she's got her mama's master charm
She acts so nonchalant, but the girl gets everything she wants

[chorus]

Livin' a charmed life, everything's workin' out right
Livin' a charmed life, (you know) everything's workin' out right
You know she's livin', lovin', lovin', livin' - yeah yeah

She lives a charmed life, she lives a charmed life
