Lyrics

1. 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...

2. Fugitive

I've never been locked up, for crimes of passion,
I'm on the lamb, 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...

3. 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...

4. Doomsday Flight

See the widow Goode, she’s dressed in black
She knows Johnny B., ain’t coming back
Took off in a plane, one stormy night
Never seen again, that final flight

Doomsday Flight
Do they really die
Doomsday Flight
Are they still somewhere up in the sky

Farther back in time, she flew alone
Navigating stars, to parts unknown
Crash the papers said, her plane went down
Still unto this day, was never ever found

Doomsday Flight
Do they really die
Doomsday Flight
Are they still somewhere up in the sky

Solo

Engines overhead, cut through the night
You can hear them still, that final flight

Doomsday Flight
Do they really die
Doomsday Flight
Are they still somewhere up in the sky

5. Find It Out The Hard Way

You're lookin' for adventure, I'll throw a little your way.
But if you should abuse it, there'll be hell to pay.
You come on like a tiger, with all the love you can take.
You're ridin' for a hard fall, with all the promises you make.
I'm wanna be standin' there,
Ohhh, when, you find it out the hard way.
Hurt another heart, and then,
You find it out the hard way, you find it out the hard way.
A silver spoon in your mouth, you're daddy's little girl.
But do you think you're ready, for the ways of the world.
You've been playin' with the big boys, you better watch your step.
'Cause you just might discover, where those bones are kept.
I'm gonna be standin' there,
Ohhh, when, you find it out the hard way.
Hurt another heart, and then,
You find it out the hard way, you find it out the hard way.
I'm wanna be standin' there,
I'm gonna be standin' there,
Ohhh, when, you find it out the hard way.
Hurt another heart, and then,
You find it out the hard way.
Ohhh when, you find it out the hard way.
Hurt another heart, and then,
You find it out the hard way.
Ohhh, when, you find it out the hard way.
Hurt another heart, and then,
You find it out the hard way...

6. Nobody's Fool

I, shoulda known right from the start,
You put a wall around my heart,
But I couldn't keep away,
Get to close, now I must pay.
I, I'm nobody's fool.
We fell in love and we broke all the rules.
I'm nobody's fool but mine.
Little girl, you probably wrote the book,
'Cause you caught me line and hook.
You'd think by now I'd learn,
Get too close and you get burned.
I, I'm nobody's fool.
We fell in love and we broke all the rules.
I'm nobody's fool but mine.
I, I'm nobody's fool.
We fell in love and we broke all the rules.
I'm nobody's fool but mine.
-solo-
I, I'm nobody's fool.
We fell in love and we broke all the rules.
I'm nobody's fool but mine.
I, I'm nobody's fool.
We fell in love and we broke all the rules.
I'm nobody's fool but mine.
I, I'm nobody's fool.
We fell in love, and we broke all the rules.
I'm nobody's fool but mine.
Nobody's fool but mine...

7. Seems Like A Dream (European Version Only)

Seems like the dream I was having last night is coming true today
An angel of mercy a vision in white
There’s a law against walking that way
Next thing I know she’s squeezin’ my hand
The power of love in her eyes
She’s meltin’ my heart, She’s doin’ her part
My temperature’s startin’ to rise

Chorus:
Seems like a dream (only dreamin’)
Seems like a dream (I was only dreamin’)
Seems like a dream
Was I dreaming last night

How we got to her place, I’ll never know
I don’t remember taking a step
The music’s right the lights are down low
I falling victim to her trap
We made love deep in the night
It never felt so good before
I awoke with the sun in my eyes
And the gentle closing of a door

Chorus:
Seems like a dream (only dreamin’)
Seems like a dream (I was only dreamin’)
Seems like a dream
Was I dreaming last night

8. One-way Ticket

I looked around me, and there you were,
Standin' for everyone to see,
And then a storm came, I looked and you were gone,
I started wondering about my destiny.
I'm knockin' at the door,
I keep hopin' for,
A one-way ticket to your heart.
I'm runnin' after love.
I pray to God above.
One-way ticket to your heart.
Right then I decided, my path was to find you
No matter what the cost in lives.
I needed to feel you, I needed to have you,
To look into those deep brown eyes.
I'm knockin' at the door,
I keep hopin' for,
A one-way ticket to your heart.
I'm runnin' after love.
I pray to God above.
One-way ticket to your heart.
Give this heart power, give this heart life,
Give me the courage, to save her from this strife.
Now I can see her, up there in the haze,
Don't let me lose her, not after all these days.
I'm knockin' at the door,
I keep hopin' for,
A one-way ticket to your heart.
I'm runnin' after love,
I pray to God above.
One-way ticket to your heart.
I'm knockin' at the door,
I keep hopin' for,
A one-way ticket to your heart.
I'm runnin' after love,
I pray to God above,
One-way ticket to your heart.
I'm knockin' at the door,
I keep hopin' for,
A one-way ticket to your heart.
I'm runnin' after love,
I pray to God above,
One-way ticket to your heart.

9. My Own Game

I was born, proud and free.
To seek the life ahead of me.
When I was ten, I became a man.
Started working on my own plan.
Got more desire.
My ambition.
I'm out in front, I lapped them all.
Form on my feet, 'cause I can't fall.
I can't lose at my own game.
Try to break me, but it's not the same.
I make the rules, I make the claim.
I can't lose at my own game.
No one helps me, I work alone.
Play my fingers to the bone.
This game I play, is not a chance.
I play to win, like a quick romance.
No chain will bind me, I'm feeling free.
Always do just what I please.
I'm out in front, I lapped them all.
Firm on my feet, 'cause I can't fall.
I can't lose at my own game.
Try to break me, but it's not the same.
I make the rules, I make the claim.
I can't lose at my own game.
I can't
Try to me
I make the rules, I make the claim,
I can't lose at my own game.
not the same
I can't lose at my own game.
I can't lose at my own game.

10. Falling In Love

You got me on the edge of my seat,
Not knowing if it's day or night.
Sideways on a one-way street,
Starin' at the neon lights.
I wonder if we think the same thoughts,
Whenever we're apart.
The feeling's getting stronger and stronger,
With every beat of my heart.
You and me, once in a lifetime, second to none,
Ohhh, can't you see, now and forever, you'll hear me saying that:
I'm falling more in love with you.
Can't you see:
I'm falling more in love with you.
I wake up in the still of the night, calling your name out loud.
Standing in the pouring rain, floating on silver cloud.
Waiting 'till I'm with you again, seems like a lifetime away.
And if you feel the way that I feel, you'll always be hearing me say:
You and me, once in a lifetime, second to none,
Ohhh, can't you see, now and forever, you'll hear me say that:
I'm falling more in love with you.
Can't you see:
I'm falling more in love with you.
You and me, once in a lifetime, second to none,
Ohhh, can't you see, now and forever, you'll hear me say that:
Don't you know:
I'm falling more in love with you.
Can't you see:
I'm falling more in love with you.

11. Waitin' For The Nite

Now I see your face so clear,
Both of us were so sincere.
Pushing back feelin's when we met.
Thought I couldn't have you anyway,
Blinded by the light of day.
You weren't so easy to forget.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
The second time I saw you,
There was nothing else my heart could do.
You cast your magic spell my way.
All of the sudden I, I think I know the reason why,
We always play the games we play.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night,
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
-solo-
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows...

12. Steal A Heart

It's the same old story, of a lonely heart.
And after dark is the time to start.
Looking for another, only thing to do.
Gotta keep on talkin', 'til I see it through.
'Til I see it through.
I got a feelin',
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I don't care if it's wrong or right.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
So you better hold on tight
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I'm gonna cut you like a knife.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
You better hold on for your life.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I won't give up without a fight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
Got to keep on searchin', for that heart of gold,
'Cause a heart like that, can't be bought or sold.
Knockin' at your back door, you better let me in.
Throw your cards on the table, 'cause I'm playing to win.
I got a feelin',
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I don't care if it's wrong or right.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
So you better hold on tight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I'm gonna cut you like a knife.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
You better hold on for your life.
I'm
I'm
So you better hold on tight
I'm
I'm gonna cut you like a
I won't give up without a fight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
Gonna steal it tonight...

13. Turn To Stone

When you fall in love, better hold your breath,
'Cause there's a green eyed lady, that can love you to death.
She's got a reputation, of one who cares.
Don't you know it's you she dares.
 Take one look, and your turned to stone.
Don't look back, when you're all alone.
Take one look, and you're turned to stone.
Don't look back, when you're all alone.
'Cause you'll turn your heart to stone.
She lived in a cottage, beyond the hill.
Waiting for the perfect time, to test your will.
Show no emotion, show no fear.
Don't you ever give her, what she holds so dear.

14. Raggedy Man

 Raggedy man keep pushin' and pushin',
There's no tellin' when you'll come up for air.
Please don't emote the things that you're feelin',
There ain't a single one here who cares.
Raggedy man keep workin' and workin',
For nickels and dimes, one by one.
Don't bother saving for the future,
Spend it all on a bottle of fun.
One step forward, and two steps back,
Seems like lately, that's where I'm at.
One step up and two steps down,
There's no tellin' when I'll come around again.
Raggedy man keep tryin' and tryin',
Keep tryin' to be everything that you can.
You hold the future right before you,
Let it slip right through your hands.

15. 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.

16. Land Of The Gun

I remember when my work was simple,
Snagging robbers with hooks.
Now the game has a different angle,
Chasing international crooks.
Working undercover, in the south of France.
Cold sweat breaking out, ask for one more chance.
Live my life,
In the land of the gun.
All my life,
Living on the run.
Always sleep with one eye open.
In and out of every back door.
Smith & Wesson cleaned and loaded,
In case they're coming back for more.
Jet planes racing,
Half way round the world.
Searching for the lady,
With the half a million dollar pearl.

17. Twisted Love

You’re bad news
Lord knows you lose
My heartache
Was your last mistake

Chorus:
Twisted Love
Spinnin’ me ‘round
Twisted Love
Every time you come around

Love crime
Lord I’ve done my time
Cut the jive to me
I down on my knees

Chorus:
Twisted Love
Spinnin’ me ‘round
Twisted Love
Every time you come around

18. Right Between the Eyes

I was all alone
I was just passing through
Lookin’ for good times
Lord and findin’ a few

Playing the cards I was dealt in the game
Expecting to find more of the same
How could I know when you came through the door
Ten minutes later, I’d be beggin’ for more and more

Chorus:
Your love hit me right between the eyes
It really came as no surprise
It hit me right between the eyes
Your love, it hit me right between the eyes

What was in that kiss
What was in that touch
Was it the look in your eyes
That made me want you so much

All of a sudden my heart stood still
Frozen in time by a look that could kill
Both of us burning in the heat of the night
Not even caring if it was wrong or right

Chorus:
Your love hit me right between the eyes
It really came as no surprise
It hit me right between the eyes
Your love, it hit me right between the eyes
