Track Name: The City's On Fire Tonight
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

Track Name: I Always Cry When It Rains
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
Track Name: Money Man
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
Track Name: Nobody Ever Hurt Nobody With The Blues
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
Track Name: You Can Call Me Anytime
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........
Track Name: Stay With Me Girl
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
Track Name: Young Hearts
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)
Track Name: You Made Love To Me (With Your Song)
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
Track Name: In The Middle Of The Night
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
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: Praying For The Morning
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
Track Name: I Feel Fire
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
Track Name: Soulmate
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
