Well the mailman came and brought me a letter this morning And I read where you said things have changed since you got back home. But I still remember the nights in the glow of the city light As I held you in my arms I remember what you said to me The City's On Fire Tonight And baby you're holding me tight You're making me feel so right What would I do when you're gone The City's On Fire Tonight Now the summer is gone and the winter nights grow longer and longer And I dream of about that time we kissed on the beach in the sand And then you looked into my eyes, and there was no surprise As the lights flashed across the sky, you said to me The City's On Fire Tonight Cuz baby you're holding me tight You're making me feel so right What would I do when you're gone The City's On Fire Tonight And baby you're holding me tight You're making me feel so right What would I do when you're gone The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight Cuz baby you're holding me tight You're making me feel so right What would I do when you're gone The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight The City's On Fire Tonight

I remember her voice Smell of her perfume The way she looked When she walked into the room The sunlight in her hair The love light in her eyes The nights we sepent together I can still hear her sigh And I'll never forget her And I cannot stop the pain And I always cry when it rains. We were headed for ruin The day we began It was just infatuation Between a woman and a man With nothing in common We played foolish games When passion had used us We both went up in flames And I'll never forget her And I can't stop this pain And I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I cant stop the pain Here inside me I always cry when it rains Why cant I leave all the pain Leave it behind me Where it wont find me Yeah, yeah aaaahhhh Sometimes late at night When I am lying in my bed I dream she's here beside me And I remember what she said That love would never leave us It would always be this way Nothing could come between us That's what she used to say And I'll never forget her And I can't stop this pain And I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains Lord, I cant stop the pain Here inside me I always cry when it rains Why cant I leave all the pain Leave it behind me Where it wont find me Yeah, yeah aaaahhhh I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains I always cry when it rains

Money Man 04:26
You got your high shoes on And you're dressed up like a movie star You got looks that could kill You got a shiny black Cadillac car You're going out tonight On the stalk for that special guy He's got a fat back pocket And his only limit is the sky You can't get something with nothing No no I see you writhing on the dance floor You're body moving though the night You look so good to me But baby I ain't gonna buy If you used your head You'd be dangerous But you only see the down payment You're looking good alright But you're not what I had in mind You can't get something with nothing I'm not your money I'm not your money I'm not your money man I'm not your money I'm not your money I'm not your money man I'm not your money man I'll have to do alright And I see what I can afford You take the money and run But you come back begging for more I used to fantasize and you'd be laying here next to me But I would be lying alone while you be out on a shopping spree You don't get me in the morning I'm not your money I'm not your money I'm not your money man I'm not your money I'm not your money I'm not your money man I'm not your money man You can't get something with nothing I'm not your money I'm not your money I'm not your money man I'm not your money I'm not your money I'm not your money man I'm not your money man I'm not your money man Yeahhhhhhhhhhh I'm not your money man I'm not your money man I'm not your money man Yeahhhhhhhhhhh yeah Free love, not your money man Not your money man

Yeah........yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah Some call it love but it ain’t easy Sometimes it’s more pain than you can bear There’s been a few they just went crazy They lost their back-door love affair But nobody ever hurt nobody with the blues They’ll cheat and lie and they hurt each other They’ll even turn on their best friend too It’s free for all and all for nothing You’ll never know what that lovin can do But nobody ever hurt nobody with the blues Nobody ever hurt nobody with the blues You can’t deny you’re gonna live and die You got to pay your dues I said nobody ever hurt nobody with the blues It’s plain to see with the blues in me I just can’t lose

When the door slams shut and he ain't comin' back It's like a big flat tire when you ain't got a jack When the bills come due and you ain't got a dime And the days just keep gettin' longer baby And all you got is time If you just need a friend to lend you an ear If you just need to talk over a shot and a beer Don't site there and moan pick up the phone Ain't no reason you should do it all alone You can call me anytime be it night or day You can meet me any place tell me what you gotta say Don't you keep it up inside you gotta get it all out You can call me anytime Tell me what it's all about When the pump don't work cause the well ran dry You can't see too good cause you got something in your eye When you're sittin' there alone and the night is comin' down You get that lonely ol' feeling baby Like the blues have come to town Don't sit there and moan pick up the phone Ain't no reason you should do it all alone You can call me anytime........

I remember when we first met How you said you loved me so much That you'd be with me forever You couldn't live without my touch But a heart so full of passion Sometimes fades as time goes by I've seen so many other go girl In the twinkling of an eye So I guess what I am asking you So we both can understand Is it going to be forever After I've given you my hand Are you going to stay with me girl Will you promise me hour heart Are you going to stay with me girl Should we end before we start I'm hoping you can tell me That you love will never end Are you going to stay with me girl Like so many other people That had to wait for their love so long when it came to holding on Love had come and then was gone But you know my love is true love And I hope you feel the same

Young Hearts 05:20
There are times when love is strong Two hearts beat a love without end But young love fades as time goes by It drifts apart like a long lost friend There's pain and hurt for a little while But in the end it will go away Broken heart heals itself in time Stronger and stronger a little more every day Young Hearts Burning with desire Young Hearts Love there dancing in the flames Young Hearts Will take you higher and higher Caught up in the fire You'll never know how bad it's gonna burn (How bad it's gonna burn) There are times when hatred can consume you Sometimes it seems the rules they cannot bend But lovers know they can turn the tides But you must stop before you find an end So it seems love is on trial The more we give the more we pay But a broken heart is not a crime Sometimes young hearts oh they just lose their way Young Hearts Burning with desire Young Hearts Love there dancing in the flames Young Hearts Will take you higher and higher Caught up in the fire You'll never know how bad it's gonna burn (How bad it's gonna burn) Stay young at heart Remember this rule No matter how old It's all up to you Young Hearts Burning with desire Young Hearts Love there dancing in the flames Young Hearts Will take you higher and higher Caught up in the fire You'll never know how bad it's gonna burn (How bad it's gonna burn)

I was watching you the other day I had the t.v. on And I heard you when you said how much you loved me Then you whispered soft and low And my heart was gone You swept me up into your arms and I was yours forever more And then my life was so complete Because your love was soft and sweet And I can't wait to hear you say those words again You made love to me with your song And I know that I can't go on Until you tell me once again That our love will never end And you make love to me with your song You nearly took my breath away As your song played on And I was in your arms under your spell again But I know it's not for real It's just a game I play Every time I hear you sing your song again And you just carry me away And I can't wait to hear you say That you love is going to last forever more And you make love to me with your song And I know that I can't go on Until you tell me once again That our love will never end And you make love to me with your song And my life was so complete Beacuse your love was something sweet And I can't wait to hear you say And you make love to me with your song And I know that I can't go on Until you tell me once again That our love will never end And you make love to me with your song You make love to me with your song I was watching you the other day I had the t.v. on

In the middle of the night I reach out and touch you Everything will be alright As long as I'm with you In the middle of the night You reach out and touch me We hold each other tight The way that lovers do And I want you to know that I love you so and I always will I want you to know I’ll be reaching out all of my life In the middle of the night In the middle of the night In the middle of the night Reach out for you Reach out for you In the Middle of a dream I hear you whisper Baby Sometimes I’m so afraid Afraid of losing you Oh I know what you need So I reach out and touch you We kiss all our fears away Like lovers always do And I want you to know that I love you so and I always will I want you to know I’ll be reaching out all of my life In the middle of the night In the middle of the night In the middle of the night Reach out for you Reach out for you Reach out for you In the middle of the night Reach out for you Reach out for you In the middle of the night In the middle of the night In the middle of the night

I need something to ease the pain I need something to ease the pain If I fight back I lose I’m tired of having these blues I need something to ease the pain I’m breaking up with my girl cause I know that she don’t love me no more And my best friend just called and said he saw her with the guy next door She said she’s going shopping when she left she took my whole pay check She took the keys to my car it’s got me shaking like a physical wreck I need something to ease the pain I need something to ease the pain If I fight back I just lose I’m tired of having these blues I need something to ease the pain I haven’t heard a word from that woman now in thirty-five days I don’t know where shes gone but I’m kinda hoping now that she stays I’ve been out every night you might say I’ve been painting the town I still ain’t found my car but I ain’t got no problem getting around I need something to ease the pain I need something to ease the pain If I fight back I just lose I’m tired of having these blues I need something to ease the pain I’m still out here walking I’m so glad I live real close to the bar And everybody’s looking but so far there’s just no sign of my car I need something to ease the pain I need something to ease the pain If I fight back I just lose I’m tired of having these blues I need something to ease the pain I need something to ease the pain I need something to ease the pain If I fight back I lose I’m tired of having these blues I need something to ease the pain

Bad clouds on the horizon Bringing more than rain They got that lightning and thunder They're rollin like a train The earth will shake and tremble Fire fill the darkened sky Children running to their mommies To hide their heads and cry It comes without warning Rolling 'cross the land Rain and hail on the roof Just because it can Funnels in the distance Grown men filled with fright Praying for the morning Cause it's gonna be a night Praying for the morning And what about the morning And the rising sun The clouds have spent their rivers There’s so much to be done You survived the deluge You hope you always will When nature has it’s way It’s such a bitter pill It comes without warning Rolling 'cross the land Rain and hail on the roof Just because it can Funnels in the distance Grown men filled with fright Praying for the morning Cause it's gonna be a night Praying for the morning Ahhh ahhh It comes without warning Then it’s over, moves on Like so many other storms in life You just pick up and carry on Here it comes without warning Rolling 'cross the land Rain and hail on the roof Just because it can Funnels in the distance Grown men filled with fright Praying for the morning Cause it's gonna be a night Here it comes without warning Rolling 'cross the land Rain and hail on the roof Just because it can Funnels in the distance Grown men filled with fright Praying for the morning Cause it's gonna be a night Praying for the morning

I Feel Fire 04:48
There's an ember glowing warm inside my heart tonite There's a warm and tender flame inside my soul I want to be held in your arms so safe and warm tonite I want to be held in your arms safe from the cold I want to thank the stars above for every breath I take Every time you whisper softly in my ear Then you tell me that your love will be forever more You always say the perfect things I love to hear Then my heart will skip a beat And I can hardly stand the heat When this love of ours just seems to take us higher When I feel your tender touch I want to love you oh so much Then your lips brush close to mine and I feel fire I feel fire oh oh I feel fire I feel fire With a tender love like ours our hears should never break As long as we can trust each other straight and true And we work with one another keeping fires bright Hand in hand I know our love can pull us through And then my heart will skip a beat And I can hardly stand the heat When this love of ours just seems to take us higher When I feel your tender touch I want to love you so much Then your lips brush close to mine and I feel fire I feel fire oh oh I feel fire oh oh And then my heart will skip a beat And I can hardly stand the heat When this love of ours just seems to take us higher When I feel your tender touch I want to love you so much Then your lips brush close to mine and I feel fire I feel fire oh oh I feel fire oh oh

Soulmate 04:28
Some times I wonder whats wrong with me Cause I don't show you the love you need to see And I wonder why you're still hanging on And I thank God it lasted so long Girl I think you know how I feel Tonite I'll show you that my love is real You're my soulmate Oh nothing I can say Nothing I can do baby But you know that my love for you is true baby If I just go and give my heart to you lady Then you might realize how you're driving me crazy Baby hold tight only you can save me We'll be all right if you never let go of our love Sometime I think I can't go on But in you're in love I find the strength to be strong I know that at times I'm tempting fate Deep in my heart I know you're my soulmate It feels so right with you in my arms Woman I find myself lost in your charms You're my soulmate Oh nothing I can say Nothing I can do baby But you know that my love for you is true baby If I just go and give my heart to you lady Then you might realize how you're driving me crazy Baby hold tight only you can save me We'll be all right if you never let go of our love I can't explain what I see in your eyes But I know about the pain and the tears you cried I know I'm a man of selfish ways Girl you know I'm so glad you stayed This soulmate love you have for me Is the only thing in life that makes my heart believe You're my soulmate Oh nothing I can say Nothing I can do baby But you know that my love for you is true baby If I just go and give my heart to you lady Then you might realize how you're driving me crazy Baby hold tight only you can save me We'll be all right if you never let go of our love
