1. FRONT PAGE NEWS

You made me feel good
After all this time,
Welcomed me home
With my name in lights,
Took me by the hand,
Shook away my fear,
Brought back the memory
Of those earlier years.
Everybody's talkin', front page news.
Gotta help you get up
And get rid of your blues.
Cheatin' the devil, or whatever you choose,
Even if you've got nothin', boy,
You've got somethin' to lose.

You've got Rosetta
Eatin' out of your hand.
Got the answer if you've got the time.
Can't go on forever in lotus land,
Don't end up doing one night stands.

I've seen your face in every cloud,
I've followed the sun
Which brought me back to your side.
I've lived some time
By what the fortune-tellers say,
But now I know that I'm in love with U.K.

Everybody's talkin', front page news.


2. MIDNIGHT DANCER

Will you be my midnight dancer
Any time of the day?
You can be my sweet romancer
I want to hear you say.

When love's between us,
Come on, baby, don't turn away.
Don't let go.
Love makes the music,
You can't stop the feelin',
Free will stealin' your heart away.

Stealin' your heart away
Love makes the music
And you know it's the feelin'
Free will stealin' your heart away.
I want to steal your heart away.

I'm tired of bein' a sleepwalker
On the run,
I want to be your love talker
In the night, the sun.

Oh, love makes the music,
And you know it's the feelin'
Free will stealin' your heart away
Gonna steal your heart away.

Now we can put our hearts together
With nothin' to hide.
Baby, it could last forever
Put your ... aside.

Love makes the music,
And you know it's the feelin'
Free will stealin' your heart away.
I want to steal your heart away.


3. GOODBY BABY HELLO FRIEND

I'll never write another song
For someone who just comes along -
The very thought of losing you
Is too much for me to.

The other day when you got mad,
It made you happy to see me sad.
I wish to tell you it's still the same,
Still playing that same old game.

It's goodbye baby, hello friend,
It's good to meet you after all this time.
Goodbye baby, hello friend,
It's good to see you again.

Those days and nights I lost,
Thinking 'bout what to do -
When all it's really down to, baby,
Is saying that we're through.

So give your love to the birds,
Speaking of four-letter words.
Do you hear what I say to you?
I'm not in love with you.

Goodbye baby, hello friend,
It's good to see you again.


4. SURFACE TO AIR

Surface, surface, surface,
It's beginning to show.
To air, to air, to air,
To where you can go.
Abrasion can wear you away.
All you wanted was to go out and play.
Time to fix this crack in the eagle
Before she flies away.

Smokin', smokin', smokin',
Makin' cloudier skies.
Today, today, see the stars.
Two terrestrial minds stay shy.
Monkey, monkey, wanna play around,
But get confused when flames burn your hand.
Got to fix this ache in the eagle
So she can understand.

Surface, surface, surface,
It's beginning to rise.
To air, to air, to air,
To where you can realize your dreams
Brains and beauty can scare you away.
Who knows how much is too much to say?
Try to fix this ache in the eagle
Before she flies away, flies away.

6. COME IN FROM THE RAIN

I had troubles aplenty,
My pockets were empty
From livin' out on the sidewalk.
Footsteps takin' me nowhere,
But where can you go when you don't know
What it is you're lookin' for?

Just as I was a desperate man
You made the sun start to shine,
You said,"Baby, come in from the rain".

You could see down the stitches and patches
That were holdin' me together,
So with stolen faces, hand in hand,
We made footsteps together for musicland.

Used to be I had troubles aplenty,
My pockets were empty, yeah,
From the bad life on the back streets.
But when your footsteps are takin' you nowhere
Where can you go and what can you do
When you don't know what you're lookin' for?

Hey, just as I reached the real world
You made the sun start to shine,
You said, "Baby, come in out of the rain".
Oh, yeah, I said you made the sun start to shine,
Oh, baby, come in from the rain.


7. RIGHT OR WRONG

Like to have you 'round
With all the lies that you make,
The things or darkness and you.
Some people say, have just a taste.
Right or wrong, you might get burned -
What you gain is what you learn.

Got one too many women,
Don't know quite which way to go.
They're all gettin' so expensive
When they walk by themselves.
Right or wrong, don't regret,
What you went for is what you get.

No point in bitter tears
When someone else has cut you down,
'Cause there's a time for leavin'
And there's a time for stickin' around, hey.
Right or wrong, you've got to live,
So what you collect is what you give.


8. HEART BEAT

Is it a crime to love a woman,
To give her everything?
People change, she goes away,
And you're left with nothing.
You've been together for so long,
That's what's makin' it hard,
Just like an old-fashioned noose.
You cry some tears, and you move along.

In your arms I was singin',
Now my ears are ringin'
To hear your heart beat for another man.

Can you be in love again
When you've been burned through and through?
Having to stop with an open heart
Leaves a lot to lose.
'Cause you've been together for so long,
That's what's makin' it hard,
Just like an old-fashioned noose.
You cry some tears, move along.

In your arms I was singin',
Now my ears are ringin'
To hear your heart beat for another man.


9. THE DAY I FOUND YOUR LOVE

When I was a stranger to you in the night
And the feeling tells you, out of sympathy,
To open up your wings, turn your head to the sky,
Take off like a bird, let your heart be free.

I found deep feeling devotion
The day that I found your love.

I can see above the diamond-studded sky,
Hear the sound of night life passing by,
Scent the early morning with every breath of air,
Taste the secret potion that we both share.

I found deep feeling devotion
The day I found your love.


10. DIAMOND JACK

As the dealer dealt the cards to everyone,
I could see that I was free.
I had an ace of hearts, the dream of every man,
And I could see my destiny.
I can not justify the way I play,
But only see them as they fall.

The diamond Jack
Black magical Lady Luck,
Who will show me the way.

When you have your freedom
Without worldly care,
Around human share.
Along the way there's evil waitin' for you,
And evil's not judge and jury, but yourself.

When you're tired to the bone
Remembrance gone,
And you have cast your dice,
Take your chances as they come, one by one,
The hand of fate is as cold as ice
