Waitin' On You (Dammit)

Can I tell a sorry story,
a bit of my past glory?
Such a lovely flower,
but in a needful hour,
She failed me, yeah,
she let me down.

I could see her with me,
thought in my arms sheíd be
givíin me a chance,
in a lovley romance.
But I feel a new man
cominí around.

No, I didnít plan it
(this soft spot for you, dammit).
The fool in my heart it
would trade this whole planet,
but you left me standing there...
waiting on you, (dammit).

I would change the past
to build a love that lasts.
Please to be my queen,
the world has never seen
a man whoíll love you like I do.
Now Iíll collect the parts
from my broken heart.
Iíll faithfully respect you,
no, never neglect you.
Nevír again will I be such a fool.

No, I didnít plan it
(this soft spot for you, dammit).
The fool in my heart it
would trade this whole planet,
Donít leave me standing here...
waiting on you, (dammit).

My heart feels so giddy.
Youíre so very pretty.
You filled all of my dreams,
I was smitten it seems,
lips sweeter than sweet.

Can I tell a sorry story,
a bit of my past glory?
Such a lovely flower,
but in a needful hour,
She failed me, yeah,
she let me down.

No, I didnít plan it
(this soft spot for you, dammit).
The fool in my heart it
would trade this whole planet,
Donít leave me standing here...
waiting on you, (dammit).
Well, I donít want to talk about it.
Iíve got to live without it.
You left me standing here...
waiting on you, (dammit).

If youíd only come around,
Iíd never let you down.

Motion Pictures

She wants into those motion pictures,
Thinkiní she could be a star.
Itís a Hollywood movie mystery,
She wants a chauffeur driven Jaguar.

Little darliní you look so fine.
Iíve got a proposition if youíve got the time.
I can put you in the pictures, I swear itís true.
Hollywoodís got a place for you.

On the stage where the lights are bright.
When film is rolling timing must be right.
Flash, flash, weíll shoot some scenes,
"Move to the left darliní, do it again".

In the pictures,
Motion pictures.
Million dollar pictures, starring you.
In the pictures.

They squeeze their shutters and they holler when
to wind you up, and tell you, "do it again"
Silk stockings and you canít turn back.
All you thought you had to do was act.

Theyíre takiní pictures of their favorite scenes.
Dirty Kodaks that would make you scream.
Shoot you with their Rollieís and their Nikons too.
Youíve made the big time, what you gonna do?

In the pictures,
Motion pictures.
Million dollar pictures, starring you.
In the pictures.

In the pictures,
Motion pictures.
Dirty pictures, starring you.
In the pictures.

Hold Me Girl

Spent a long time working like a field hand,
sweatiní in Colombian sun.
I played a fast line, dealing with the big manís
got me making one more run.

Search a long time lookiní for my sunshine
ending up with cloudy days.
Send me flying lookiní for a life line.
Always end up lost in space.
When the night time comes
and Iím rolliní up one,
I look at the game and I think
it all seems funny, yeah, yeah.

Sha la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la.

Oooh, I had a lover, sheís unlike any other.
I wonder what sheís doing today.
I nearly smothered, itís a wonder Iíve recovered,
enough to tell that girl this way.

We had some good nights and we had some rough flights.
Couldnít make it work together.
In my heart sheís broken off a part,
a place she fit like no other.

The night time comes
and Iím with someone,
I look at the game and I think
it all seems funny, yeah, yeah.

Sha la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la.

Hold me girl, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me tighter, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me girl, keep me from runniní away.

Yeah, my man!

Such a long time searchiní for my sunshine
lookiní for a reason to stay.
Be a lover, be unlike any other,
keep me from runniní away.

When the night time comes
and Iím rolliní up one,
I look at the game and I think
it all seems funny, yeah, yeah.

Sha la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la.

Hold me girl, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me tighter, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me girl, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me girl.
Hold me.
Ooh, hold me tighter.
Hold me girl.
Hold me girl, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me tighter, keep me from runniní away.
Hold me girl, keep me from runniní away.
Keep me from runniní away.
Keep me from runniní away.
Keep me from runniní away

Talk Louder

Sittiní in a Coney Island
Sippiní my cup of tea
Best looking waitress Iíd ever seen
danced right up to me.
She said, "Could I serve you please?
Would your coffee like some cream?"
I said I was drinkiní tea
and you can give me some honey, please.

She told me,"Talk (talk) louder,
donít you give me that mumbled jive".
She said,"Talk, talk louder,
now donít you give me that mumbling jive".

I left that Coney Island
and I was sittiní on Saginaw Street.
Prettiest motorist ever seen
pulled up beside ía me.
She said, "Could you help me, please?
My engines running red!"
I said I could cool her off,
but itíd have to be in bed...

And she told me,"Talk (talk) louder,
donít you give me that mumbled jive".
She said,"Talk, talk louder,
now donít you give me that mumbling jive".

I told her Iíd get her some water,
and I took off for the coast.
I made it out to New York City,
where (under a lamp post),
the sexiest girl Iíd ever seen said,

"Can I help you please?,
you look like my kind of man
and Iím your kind of sleaze!"
And I told her,"Talk (talk) louder,
donít you give me that mumbled jive".

I said,"Talk, talk louder,
now donít you give me that mumbling jive".
"Talk (talk) louder,

Dreams Die Hard

I want you here with me.
I need you by my side.
But itís something you feel
that you canít do just now.
Will there ever be a time?
Will I ever call you mine?
How long can I wait
for tomorrow?

You ask me to understand,
youíve got a life of your own.
Youíre comfortable, safe and secure.
and it wouldnít feel right
to confront the unknown.
Not when everything now seems so sure.

Dreams die hard, itís amusing to me
when your desire conflicts with your destiny.

I remember a time you didnít resist.
When we shared the same crazy dream.
Sometimes now I wonder, did we ever exist?
I guess some things are not what they seem

Itís something you feel you canít do just now.
The shadow of your love will always follow me
and Iíll keep your faded picture on my wall
and if time ever comes, you decide to fly free

Iíll be there to catch your heart if it falls

Dreams die hard itís amusing to me
when your desire conflicts with your destiny.
Dreams die hard, itís amusing to see
when your desire conflict with your destiny.

Remember the time you didnít resist.
When we shared the same crazy dream.
Sometimes now I wonder, did we ever exist?
I guess some things are not what they seem
Mmmm, I need you by my side.
But you canít do it just now.
Will I ever call you mine?
I wait for tomorrow.
Youíve got a life of your own.
Youíre so safe and secure.
Wonít you confront the unknown.
You seem so sure.
Well, youíll always follow me
Iíll keep you on my wall
If you decide to fly free.
Iíll be there
Iíll be by your side
I want you
I need You

Angelina

Come out with me sweet Angelina,
I donít want to go out all alone.
Pack a suitcase, put your shoes on,
fix your face when weíre in the car.
Flyiní out under the street lights,
tonight thereíll be a shooting star.

I know that itís not the first time Iíve ask you,
but this time Iím here all alone.
Come out with me my Angelina,
I donít want to go out all alone.

The storm might be here by nightfall,
weíve got to run while the way is still clear.
Climb in the car with me my Angelina.
Take our lives and weíll get out of here.

I know that itís not the first time Iíve ask you,
but this time Iím here all alone.
Come out with me my Angelina,
I donít want to go out all alone.
Weíre flyiní out under the street lights,
tonight thereíll be a shooting star.

Nights in this town are getting harder.
Street kids paint pictures in the alleys.
Iím crying for you my Angelina,
the heat from the street burns right through me.

I know that itís not the first time Iíve ask you,
but this time Iím here all alone.
Come out with me my Angelina,
I donít want to go out all alone.
Weíre flyiní out under the street lights,
tonight thereíll be a shooting star.

Kept Woman

Liviní in a big town,
he said heĎd treat you right.
Keeps you in a five room cage,
youíre steppiní out Tuesday night

Kept woman.
You canít keep on keepiní on
Kept woman canít tell your mama what youíre doing.

Keep your windows locked.
Keep your shades pulled down,
or his wife might come a knockiní
run you out of town.

Kept woman.
You canít keep on keepiní on
Kept woman canít tell your mama what youíre doing.

Wasting all your time on a man whoís getting grey.
Just a private whore and he uses you for play.
Have to sit and wait for a phone call late at night
youíre dreaminí little girl if you think money makes it right.
Lord, money donít make it right.

I want you to be my baby,
wonít you come and stay with me.
Forget about your fancy toys,
living obligation free.

Kept woman.
You canít keep on keepiní on
Kept woman canít tell your mama what youíre doing.

Give your loviní to me,
we can dine by candlelight.
What I lack in money, baby,
I can make up for at night.

Kept woman.
You canít keep on keepiní on
Kept woman canít tell your mama what youíre doing.
Kept woman canít tell your mama what youíre doing.
Kept woman canít tell your mama what youíre doing.
My kept woman!

Firewall

When itís late at night,
and the air all around you is clear.
You roll down your window,
shift it into gear.

Feel the engine straining
as you are floating through the curve.
Lonely heart and heavy metal,
wondering if youíve got the nerve.

Suicidal tendencies.
Push the pedal to the firewall.
Donít burn out on the highway.
Do you really want to end it all?

The wheels in your head
are spinning like the wheels of your car.
The lines down the freeway
look like the strings on a guitar.

Then when you check the mirror
Thatís when you check your eyes.
Well this life might be a tough life,
But you donít want to die.

Suicidal tendencies.
Push the pedal to the firewall.
Donít burn out on the highway.
Do you really want to end it all?
Against the firewall.
Donít want to end it all.
Against the firewall.

í65 Tempest

I saw a í65 Tempest with the white top down,
Out there, driven by a short haired clown.
Black convertible with a Jersey plate,
I must-a be wrong it must-a be some mistake.

Gotta catch him before heís gone,
find out whatís going on.
All of the time I thought she was in school.
Out playing hookey, playiní me for a fool.
"me for a fool", yeah, yeah
But I ainít no fool.

It was a black Pontiac with a white top down.
I chased that sucker all over town.
Came up beside him at a traffic light
and he said, "You look-a familiar",
then his face turned white.

Gotta catch him before heís gone,
find out whatís going on.
All of the time I thought she was at school.
Out playing hookey, playiní me for a fool.
"me for a fool", yeah, yeah...
well I ainít no fool.

í65 Tempest with a rag top down,
is proof my babys been out fooliní round.
Traffic lights are red, yellow and green.
Now whyíd my baby have to be so mean?

Gotta catch him before heís gone,
find out whatís going on.
All of the time I thought she was at school.
Out playing hookey, playiní me for a fool.
"me for a fool", yeah, yeah...
but I ainít no fool.

Gotta catch him before heís gone,
find out whatís going on.
All the time I thought she was at school.
Out playing hookey, playiní me for a fool.
"me for a fool", yeah, yeah...
Lord, I ainít no fool.

Saw somebody in my babys car.
No more for me know sheís gone too far.
Black convertible with a white top down.
White letter rubber runniní all around.

Headlights

I can tell you something Ďbout me baby,
maybe that you donít know.
I get on the freeway and on some days
I just let myself go.

Feel the engine start to unwind behind you,
like a speedboat on a concrete sea.
Check the mirror for headlights behind me
and I make my wake.

When youíre on the highway at night "headlights"
they come on in waves.
Throw your head back and forget about
your troublesome days, yeah.

Feel the engine start to unwind behind you,
Like a jet fighter in the lonesome blue.
Check the mirror for headlights behind you
and cut the night.

I like my isolation baby,
when things push me too hard.
Fire my imagination but donít
go too far, donít go too far.

I can tell you something about me baby
maybe that you donít know.
I get on the freeway and on some days
I just let myself go.

Feel the engine start to unwind behind me,
like a speedboat on a concrete sea.
Check the mirror for headlights behind you
and cut the night.

Punks

We were liviní in the alleyways,
and banging on the street.
Act just like a derelict for the people that we meet.
Try to stay away from cocaine,
smoked a lot of dope.
Seemed like rock and roll
was gonna be my only hope, oh yeah...

She looked right, got tight
revviní up her car.
Ridiní on a new wave and teariní up the bar.
They said that in the eighties anyone could be a star.

We were punks and the girls were liviní in another world.
Punks and bad girls, outcasts of the world...

She said, "Come on baby, letís go rollin' down the street,
come on baby, shock the people that we meet".
Weíll grab some wind, an "FLHE",
rockiní down the highway on my Harley with me".

We were punks and the girls were liviní another world.
The punks and the girls weíre liviní another world.
Punks and bad girls, weíre outcast from the world...

The punk is on the street outside
revviní up his car.
His girl is in the bathroom,
sheís tearing up the bar.
If it looked like the real thing
anyone could be a star...

They were punks and the girls were liviní in another world.
The punks and the girls were liviní another world.
Punks and bad girls, outcasts of the world...

We were punks and the girls were in another world.
The punks and the girls were in another world.
Punks and bad girls, cast out from the world...
Punks and the girls were in another world.
Frustrated girls, outcasts of the world...
