Lyrics

1. Stage Fright

Well I get a little frightened, and I get a little mean.
But the way that I see it, it's just part of the scene.
So I get a little shaky, and I get a little high.
It's just part of my life, so don't ask me why.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
Well how can I control it? How can I survive?
Got to try and hold it, got to keep it alive.
Well for ages and ages, man has felt the same:
"If you can't pay the price, then you can't play the game".
Well, I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
Well I get a little frightened, and I get a little mean.
 But the way that I see it, it's just part of the scene.
So I get a little shaky, and I get a little high.
It's just part of my life, so don't ask me why.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
I get stage fright.
Stage fright.
Stage fright.
Stage fright.

2. Rat Race

Lyin', cryin', it's all a game,
But we can't decide who's to blame.
No pride, no passion, no social grace,
We're all rats in this endless race.
Striving, thriving, a lifetimes work,
You end up a soda jerk.
Hard times dumped into your lap,
A nice crisp, facial slap.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
Crust of bread, and piece of cheese,
This race is run upon your knees.
A wife who keeps you on your toes,
A ruthless boss who browns your nose.
Chance of winning is so remote,
Stick your fingers on down your throat.
Life's a wheel and you're a spoke,
Bitter dreams on which you choke.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
Lyin', cryin', it's all a game,
But we can't decide who's to blame.
No pride, no passion, no social grace,
We're all rats in this endless race.
Striving, thriving, a lifetime's work,
You end up a soda jerk.
Hard times dumped into your lap,
A nice crisp, facial slap.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.
I'm running... this rat race.
Can't keep pace with the rat race.

3. 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... 

4. Underworld King

Runnin', hidin', sometimes I wish I 'd been law abidin'.
Hangout, stakeout, and if I'm caught I'll just break out.
Fakin', takin', my heart it feels like it's breakin'.
Lie low, go slow, the man's closing in on me now.
When I wake up, I must hide my face.
'Cause I'm a fugitive, from the human race.
Tomorrow is a day, I might never see.
Some people, they could never be free.
The underworld king, the underworld king, the underworld king, the underworld king.
Foldup, holdup, sometimes I feel my time is up.
Go round, low low down, things are hot gotta leave this town.
Pickup, stickup, I only need just to fill my cup.
Go slow, lie low, the man's closing in on me now.
When I wake up, I must hide my face.
'Cause I'm a fugitive from the human race.
Tomorrow is a day I might never see.
Some people they could never be free.
The underworld king, the underworld king, the underworld king, the underworld king.
When I wake up, I must hide my face.
'Cause I'm a fugitive from the human race.
Tomorrow is a day I might never see.
Some people they could never be free.
The underworld king, the underworld king, the underworld king,
The underworld king, the underworld king, the underworld...

5. Out On Bail

I can still remember that Friday night,
When they came to take me away.
Wish I could have missed that fateful night,
Instead I missed the light of day.
Hey Mister Jailer, won't you give me my one call,
I know who set me up, to take this fall.
You know I wanna find that guy today,
I want you to bring him up my way!
Get me out, get me out.
Get me out on bail.
Get me out, get me out,
Get me out on bail, yeah.
Thank you Mr. Majors, now, for what you did.
Here's what I'm gonna do for you,
Gonna find the guy who did this to me,
And send his pointy finger to you!
Now I can go and tell all my friends,
He can't point a finger at any of them!
Yes, I know, he might have somethin' to say,
I'll take care of that another day.
Now I'm out, so far out,
Yes, I'm out on bail.
Yes I'm out, well I'm out, yes I'm out on bail.
Out, yes I'm out, out on bail
Well I'm out, Yes I'm out, out on bail.
-solo-
Out, out, out, out, out on bail.
Out, out, out, out, out on bail.
Out, out, out, out, out on bail.
Out, out, out, out, out on bail.
Out, out, out, out, out on bail.
Out, out, out, out, out on bail...

6. Fugitive

I've never been locked up, for crimes of passion,
I'm on the lam, just the same.
No time for love, it ain't my fashion.
Someone gets hurt, and I'm always to blame.
I'm just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
You don't know my name,
But you know my game.
I'm just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
One step ahead, of the dream police,
One step behind, where I want to be.
I cast no shadow, I leave no scent.
I'm on the loose, and freedom bent.
I'm just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
You don't know my name,
But you know my game.
I'm just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
-solo-
You don't know my name,
But you know my game.
I'm just a fugitive, just a fugitive,
I'm a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
I'm a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive, runnin' from your love.
Just a fugitive,
Just a fugitive...

7. Walk Away

I walk into, a crowded room,
Our eyes meet, in the smoky gloom.
It's been so long, you sure look good to me.
I want you, you can tell.
But I know you girl, a bit too well.
Those memories, just won't set me free.
Gotta walk away, 'cause you're playin' too rough.
Gotta walk away, 'cause I'm not that tough.
Gotta walk away, when I've had enough.
Gotta walk away, 'cause you're playin' too rough.
Another drink, to ease the pain.
Another night, it's all the same.
It's wrong to try, to keep this love alive.
So I go out the door, into the night.
It was so wrong, but it felt so right.
Baby, let my poor heart be.
Gotta walk away, 'cause you're playin' too rough.
Gotta walk away, 'cause I'm not that tough.
Gotta walk away, when I've had enough.
Gotta walk away, 'cause you're playin' too rough.
-solo-
Gotta walk away, 'cause you're playin' too rough.
Gotta walk away, 'cause I'm not that tough.
Gotta walk away, when I've had enough.
Gotta walk away, 'cause you're playin' too rough.
Gotta walk away, gotta walk away, gotta walk away, gotta walk away.
All I got to, say to ya girl, is bye-bye...

8. Rock Doktor

 It's so heavy I can feel it,
Mash my skin down to the bone.
I don't know how long I can stand it,
Call my Doctor on the phone.
I've got symptoms of passion,
All the usual signs,
Lord I feel like I'm dying.
I need a shot...of Rock & Roll,
Rock Doctor.
I need a shot...of Rock & Roll,
Rock Doctor.
It gives me the chills, it makes me shake.
I try to stand, but I fall down.
My fever's making me bake,
My head is starting to pound.
I think I'm slipping under,
Closer to my grave.
I'm beginning to wonder,
If there's a cure that can save.

9. Symptoms of Passion

It’s so heavy I can feel it
Mashin’ my skin down to the bone
I wonder how long I can stand it
Call my doctor in the phone

Chorus
I’ve got symptoms of passion
I’ve got all the usual signs
I’ve got symptoms of passion
Lord I hope your love’s in time

It give me chills and makes be shake
I try to stand but I just fall down
My fever is making me bake
My head is starting to pound

Chorus
I’ve got symptoms of passion
I’ve got all the usual signs

I think I’m slipping under
Getting’ closer to my grave
And I’m beginning to wonder
If there’s a cure that can save

Chorus
I’ve got symptoms of passion

10. Winds of Fortune

Winds of fortune, fill the sail
Push us hard, and never fail
Set a course to lands unknown
All directions leading farther from home

Chorus
All our lives we’re heading for
A remote and distant shore
Waiting for the day to come
When we stand with both feet on the ground

Sailing ships in dreadful gale, few survive to tell the tale
The sea is rough the weather damned
Point the way so that we may find land
I know I’m looking for someone
Maybe it’s you
I know I’m searching for something
Maybe it’s you

Chorus
All our lives we’re heading for
A remote and distant shore
Waiting for the day to come
When we stand with both feet on the ground

11. Town Bad Girl

The people in town they like to talk about you.
You couldn't have done all those things they say.
Small minds need somebody to look down on.
It's so hard to turn your head away.
She was so beautiful, Daddy's little baby.
She was so innocent, 'till Daddy took it away.
Town bad girl...Town bad girl,
Town bad, Town bad girl.
Your Daddy left home when you were only thirteen,
He couldn't face up to what he did to you.
The people in town started calling you the bad girl,
And they made up things that you could never do.
She was so beautiful, Daddy's little baby.
She was so innocent, 'till Daddy took it away.
Town bad girl...Town bad girl.
Town bad, Town bad girl.
She was so beautiful, Daddy's little baby.
She was so innocent, 'till Daddy took it away.
Town bad girl...Town bad girl.
Town bad girl...Town bad girl.

12. I Am For You

Come here, I want to tell you something,
About you and me.
I feel you're uncertain, feel insecurity.
What can I do to convince you,
That my love is true.
I am the man for you,
And you're the woman for me.
Most of our friends are single, unhappy in love.
Not enough, give and take, just push and shove.
I am for you...and I will always be.
I am for you...you are for me.
I am for you...how can I make you see?
I am for you...and you are for me.
Come here, I want to tell you something,
I think you should know.
I would never leave you,
I would never go.
Some men have disappointed you, and left you lonely.
I would never break your heart, my arms are for you only.
I am for you...and I will always be.
I am for you...you are for me.
I am for you...how can I make you see?
I am for you...and you are for me.
You are for me.
I am for you...and I will always be.
I am for you...you are for me.
I am for you...
I am for you...

13. Wish Song

Will they come for me, when the morning comes?
Will they come for me, when the day is done?
Can't get away, my hands are tied.
I can't escape, freedom's denied.
The dark one comes, so you best run and hide,
The dark one comes, he will be denied.
Hold on, hold on to the day.
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till we find the empty shore.
In the fire's glow, see a shadow stir.
I know his thoughts, though he speaks no words.
He comes for me and my magic ways.
For the wish song's tune, any price he'll pay.
We must resist, or we lose this day.
We must resist, must resist.
Hold on, hold on to the day.
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till I find the empty shore.
I see him coming, I feel his presence near.
Jesus has arisen, to lay to rest my fears.
The evil tide has turned, turned away to run.
God is in my right hand, I am the chosen, am the chosen one.
Hold on, hold on to the day.
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till I find the empty shore.
Hold on, hold on,
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till we find the empty shore.

14. Loneliness

V1
For all the miles we’ve traveled
Through distance and through time
We find the things we valued
They aren’t worth one dime

Pre Chorus:
We miss those who have left us
But they never really go away
They come to us in our dreams
If only they could stay

Chorus:
We’ve all been down that road before Loneliness
Can’t take this feelin’ any more
Loneliness

V2
I’ve lost a friend or two now
I’ve seen the seasons change
My heart is beating stronger
But still I can’t explain

Pre Chorus:
Loneliness is the feeling
I get when you’re away
Loneliness it’s just loneliness
If only you could stay

Chorus

V3
I see it all so clearly
Like through a crystal ball
I dream we’re still together
But you’re not here at all

Ooooh – Loneliness
Ooooh – Loneliness

Chorus – out

15. This Time Around

We've got so much history
It's the (ongoing) story of you and me

Sometimes I've caused you pain
But we see the light after the rain
The more we know the more we grow
I just have to let you know

This Time Around (repeat)
I wont let you down
This Time around

Just how we got here I’m not sure
We have a love that will endure

I know I’ll never let you go
