Lyrics

1. A Diamond Is A Hard Rock

Sometimes people ask me, why I'm never alone.
I just say: "Mister, because I'm the show!"
Tale of lovers left behind, no more to be seen.
My heart is like a diamond, you know what I mean.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
Been many places, seen many faces,
Feel I can safely say:
"That a woman is good, as a woman is good,
As long as she's not in the way".
Hey looking pretty from the seventeenth row,
What'd you think of the show?
If you're lookin' for a lastin' love,
Well here's something you should know:
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.
A diamond is a hard rock.

2. Waiting

Waiting... for the light to stop showin'.
Waiting... for the glow of my knowin'.
Waiting... for the sun to stop shinin'.
Now that your gone, it's time to be flyin' away.
Waiting... for my ears to stop ringin'.
Waiting... for the birds to stop singin'.
Waiting... for my head to stop spinnin'.
Waiting... for the crowd to stop screamin'... for me.
I gave you a chance, but that was the last dance.
I tried to be the man, you wanted me to be.
I gave you time for us, but now its time for me.
Waiting... for my eyes to stop cryin'.
Waiting... for your lips to stop lyin'.
Lord, I'm,
Waiting... for the time to stop tryin'.
Said, I'm,
Waiting... for the time to say goodbye,
Yeah, fly away.
I gave you a chance, but that was the last dance.
I tried to be the man you wanted me to be,
I gave you time for us, but now it's time for me.
I gave you a chance, but that was the last dance.
I tried to be the man you wanted me to be,
I gave you time for us, but now it's time for me.
Waiting... lord I'm waiting... yes, yes I'm waiting... lord I'm waiting...

3. Long Shot

You say you don't know me,
You say you're not sure,
You say your mother doesn't like me,
You want a love that will endure.
Ready or not, you are my longshot.
Ready or not, you are all I got, Yeahhh.
You say you'll meet me this Friday night,
You say you'll know for sure by then.
I say this is how really feel,
I say I'll win you in the end.
Ready or not, you are my long shot.
Ready or not, you are all I got.
Ready or not, ready or not,
You are my long shot.
Ready or not, ready or not,
You are my longshot.

4. Woman

There is no reason why I'm tired of believin',
Or sick and grievin', cause I got you.
I just can't understand,
Why that you make me, feel uneasy, each and every day.
Woman I just can't explain,
How you do it, you put me through it, and make me pay.
You can never feel just what I do,
To love and to want you, but to let you go.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Why is it that you cannot comprehend,
Nor even bend, around to what I say.
In the beginning I had the belief, or was it the relief,
That you were what I was looking for.
It was an expected surprise,
That look in your eyes, mesmerized by my doubts.
You can never feel just what I do,
To love and to want you, but to let you go.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Woman can't you hear it,
Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know, don't you know, my heart is talking.
Can't you hear it, can't you hear it now.
Ohh my heart is talking to you... 

5. Jailbait

Well you say you're 15, and you're feelin' mean.
Don't care what people say.
Got your high-heel boots, and your leisure suits.
And you're feeling no pain.
You're the pinball piper, the snakeskin viper.
You've got the midas touch.
You're gonna get you way, each and every day.
Ain't nobody gonna push you around.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
Suburban chislers and tough skin misters,
Are trying to take it away.
You're a love-struck tot, but you're runnin' so hot,
Blazin' down the boulevard.
You make all deals, with your six inch heels,
On the hotel floor.
You don't know the meaning, but you got the feeling,
That I been looking for.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
I'm not givin' you no speech, you cute little peach.
I'm here to love you night and day.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
Jailbait, heartache.
Gonna push it to the limit, gonna make it pay.
Jailbait, heartache.
Jailbait, heartache.

6. I Think I Got It

When I was out on the road, I kept myself true.
I kept my hands to myself, 'cause I was thinking of you.
It took a lot of control, 'cause I've got a strong drive.
I was trying to be faithful, didn't know you were so jive.
I think I got it, I think I got it from you.
I think I got it, I don't know what to do.
I think I got it, tell me, tell me the truth.
I ain't been fooling around, so who's been fooling with you? Yeah
Well you been fooling me, with all this fooling around.
My friends say you've been through, every bar in town.
Now I ain't getting heavy, 'cause that ain't my style.
But for you sake baby, stay away for awhile.
I think I got it, I think I got it from you.
I think I got it, I don't know what to do.
I think I got, tell me, tell me the truth.
I ain't been fooling around, so who's been fooling with you, yeah?
I think I got it, I got it from you.
I think I got it, I got it from you.
I think I got it, I think I got it from you.
I think I got it, I don't know what to do.
I think I got it...

7. Evil

The very first time that I saw you, you were all dressed up in white.
Ohhh, such a sight.
Little Miss Goody-two-shoes, and you never went out at night.
So full of fright.
I told you that I wanted to change things yeah, and everything would be all right.
Ohhh, ohhh.
Now I've got you where I want you to be,
I'm evil and you belong to me.
I'm evil, but I'm the best thing you've got.
I'm evil, but I fit your slot, yeah.
I'm evil, 'bout as evil as I can be, yeah.
I'm evil, and you belong to me.
I told you it was for the better, the changes you were goin' through.
Ohhh, poor little you.
You had a terrible sense of direction, you didn't know where I was takin' you.
Down the dark trail of corruption, to the place where the devil rules, yeah.
Now you're exactly where I want you to be.
I'm evil, and you belong to me.
Evil, but I'm the best thing you've got.
I'm evil, but I fit your slot.
I'm evil, 'bout as evil as I can be, yeah.
I'm evil, and you belong to me.
EVIL
Evil, but I'm the best thing you've got.
I'm evil, but I fit your slot, yeah.
I'm evil, 'bout as evil as I can be, yeah.
I'm evil, and you belong to me.
I'm evil, but I'm the best thing you got, yeah.
I'm evil, but honey I fit your slot.
I'm evil, 'bout as evil...

8. Live A Little

I can feel it, running through me.
Always has been, always will be.
Feelings inside, thoughts I can't hide.
Telling me to, let them shine through.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
I can show you, music melodies.
Songs that I play, sometimes for me,
Want to play them, want to sing them.
Want to share them, with all of you.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little, live a little rock and roll.
Sing a little, play a little...

9. Flyin' Too High

"OK, we're rolling on 2..."
Wohhh...
Beverly Hills, popping pills,
Just wanna put your mind in a stupor.
Feeling kinda high, my mouth's kinda dry,
Try one of these they're super.
Creative drive, takin' a dive.
Put your brain into the fryin' pan.
Coke up, 'lude down, do it all.
Am I ever gonna come down again?
I'm flyin' too high, I can't come down.
I'm flyin' too high, I can't see the ground.
Flyin' too high, will I ever come 'round?
I must be flyin' in the wrong direction,
I'm gonna end up in the house of correction.
No way for me to get my connection.
I'm gonna fly into the next dimension, yeah.
Sittin' at a bar, can't drive my car,
Thinkin' 'bout callin' a cab.
Feel like a lush, my brains turned to mush,
Try one of these they're bad.
Looks like trouble, 'cause I'm seein' double,
Got a hand to the edge of the table.
Gotta come in from the sky, stop gettin' so high,
And get myself home if I'm able, yeah.
Flyin' too high, I can't come down.
I'm flyin' too high, I can't see the ground.
I'm flyin' too high, will I ever come 'round?
I must be flyin' in the wrong direction,
I'm gonna end up in the house of correction.
No way for me to get my connection.
I'm gonna fly into the next dimension.
I'm flyin' too high, I can't come down.
I'm flyin' too high, I can't see the ground.
Flyin' too high, will I ever come 'round?
I must be flyin' in the wrong direction,
I'm gonna end up in the house of correction.
No way for me to get my connection.
I'm gonna fly into the next dimension.
