  1. Like You Do 6:54 Lyrics

    Well I’ve seen women who cross their legs
    Before they sit down to the table
    And I’ve seen women who look to the sky
    Screamin Lord I believe in the Bible
    And I’ve seen hookers dancin through Times Square
    With their heads held up so high
    But I’ve never seen a woman
    Who makes me feel
    Woah, like you do

    Well I’ve seen couples holdin hands
    With that glazy look in their eyes
    And I’ve seen lovers rollin round in bed
    Screamin as if they’re gonna die
    And I’ve seen lovers holdin hands
    And then laughin when their back is turned
    But I’ve never seen a woman
    Who makes me feel
    Woah, like you do

    (solo)

    Well I’ve seen women who cross their legs
    Before they sit down to the table
    And I’ve seen women who look to the sky
    Screamin Lord I Believe in the Bible
    And I’ve seen hookers dancin through Times Square
    With their heads held up so high
    But I’ve never seen a woman
    Who makes me feel
    No I’ve never seen a woman
    Who can make me feel
    Like you do

  2. Lay Me Down 3:38 Lyrics

    I’ve played your game
    And I’ve played it well.
    I’ll be another fool
    To hang upon your wall.
    I laid my heart out
    Like an open book.
    It’s a simple thing and don’t take much
    To crack it open and bleed.

    Lay me down.
    Lay me down when you’re through with me.
    Lay me down.
    Let me bleed when you’re through with me.
    Don’t let me think you’re wrong,
    Just let me fall down.
    I’ll pick myself up again.
    It’s the kindest thing you can do for me,
    So, woman, won’t you lay me down.

    I lied to myself.
    Tried to believe in you.
    But it’s hard to rely on the ghost of someone you hardly even knew
    You bring things out
    Just to bring me down.
    Then you twist them about and shove ’em in my face
    Til my eyes can’t see any good.
    Yeah!

  3. Any Kind Of Love 3:34 Lyrics

    Well if you’re ever in a tight spot,
    and all the things around you are gettin’ hot,
    come to me and I can cool you off.
    And if you ever get yourself in a jam,
    and if you ever feel you need to find a man
    call my number and, darling, you found one

    But I know now, it can never work out
    the way I really wished that it would.
    But a second-hand love is better than no love at all

    And the walls get a little closer,
    and my throat gets a little tighter when
    I say to you that a second-hand love from you is better than no love at all
    Any kind of love from you is better than no love at all

    If you got the feeling it ain’t right tonight
    And if the fire at home ain’t as hot as you like
    I’ve got a fire that’s burning for you.
    And if you ever feel you need to get away
    To get away from the rest of your life,
    I’ll come a-runnin’ and show you the world.

  4. Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometime) 6:36 Lyrics

    Please don’t worry now about the mornin’
    When it’s time we’ll sip our wine and sleep
    Woah, but I’ve been known
    To love more than one person
    Woah, and I’ve been shown
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

    Listen to my words now look no further
    What you’ve seen is what I mean no more
    Woah, but I’ve been known
    To love more than one person
    Woah, and I’ve been shown
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

    Don’t dream of answers cause you know I’ve none to give
    They burn like cancers they just won’t let you live

    I’ve been known
    To love more than one person
    And I’ve been shown
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

    Don’t dream of answers cause you know I’ve none to give
    We move like dancers steppin on each other to live
    And pouncin hard
    Like animals in the yard
    And there’s no healin, lookin, feelin
    There’s no denyin that bein kind can hurt
    Someone sometimes
    Oh, there’s no denyin, woah Lord there’s no denyin
    That bein’ kind can hurt someone sometimes

  5. Keep Pushin 4:06 Lyrics

    I used to be lonely till I learned about livin alone
    I found other things to keep my mind on
    And I’m gettin to know myself a little bit better
    Whoa , I keep pushin on
    Keep pushin on, yeah

    Tryin to leave behind the heartaches
    And sometimes I think I was a little bit crazy, oh yeah

  6. (Only A) Summer Love 6:05 Lyrics

    Now there’s nothing left to do
    but to lay my head down for sleeping
    I’m weak with exhaustion and the lover’s blues
    and I still can’t forget those weeks I had with you

    But I guess it was only a summer love
    Nothing too serious and nothing to last
    I feel like a fool to be longing for that lyin’ summer love

    Once we both loved just a bit too hard
    for deep down we both knew it was dyin’
    And we both talked just a little about forever
    but we both knew we were doing some lyin’.

    Now the snow falls, freezing my hurt for you
    but some nights I feel it’s still there.
    I’ve come back now to the life I’ve known before you
    but I doesn’t have the same old meaning.

  8. (I Believe) Our Time Is Gonna Come 4:49 Lyrics

    You touched me. You took me away.
    You left me confused when you said you couldn’t stay.
    But now I know what you were trying to say.
    I can understand that I’m not the only one.
    But I believe our time is gonna come.

    I dream of you through every night,
    But you’re not risin’ with me, so I don’t wanna see the light.
    Even if you can’t come over, and I hoping that you might
    ‘Cause when you’re not here nothing’s any fun.
    But I believe our time is gonna come.

    I believe our time is gonna come
    I believe our time is gonna come
    I believe our time is gonna
    I believe our time is gonna come

  10. 157 Riverside Avenue 7:38 Lyrics

    We flew into town on Sunday, had to find a place by Monday
    Tried Bridgeport and Westport, ’til we found a place that we thought would do
    157 Riverside Avenue.

    Saugatuck River’s flowin’, Mother nature’s colors were showin’
    So cold, so rainy, we couldn’t help feelin’ blue
    Not enough time, too many things to do.

    We met a young girl on Main street, wanted to just pass her by
    She was homely, so lonely, She said, “Can I make love to you.”
    We shouted 157 Riverside Avenue.

    It’s over, Miss Lena, we’re leaving. Such a pleasant stay, I must say.
    So nice, so easy, we hate to say goodbye to you
    At 157 Riverside Avenue.

  11. Ridin' The Storm Out 5:47 Lyrics

    Ridin’ the storm out, waitin’ for the thaw out
    On a full moon night in the Rocky Mountain winter.
    My wine bottle’s low, watching for the snow
    I’ve been thinking lately of what I’m missing in the city.

    And I’m not missing a thing
    Watchin’ the full moon crossing the range
    Ridin’ the storm out
    Ridin’ the storm out.

    My lady’s beside me, she’s there to guide me.
    She says that alone we’ve finally found home.
    The wind outside is frightening,
    but it’s kinder than the lightning life in the city.
    It’s a hard life to live but it gives back what you give.

  12. Music Man 2:58 Lyrics

    Recently I’ve been thinkin about what I am and where my priorities lie
    Gettin it together on some future plan, decidin what I need to get by
    I tried workin and schoolin but there just not my plan, oh no
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man

    Well I could be pickin bluegrass or singin the blues, it doesn’t really matter to me
    As long as I’m playin the music I just can’t lose, and noones gonna tell me differently
    Cause all I really care about is sittin right here in my hands, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man

    Well my momma sits and worries about me for days
    Even though she really likes the way the boy plays
    My daddy tells her I’m just goin through a phase
    But that’s just what he always says
    I hear what they’re sayin but I take it with a grain of sand, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man
    (repeat) yeah

    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man

    Well I’ve told you my story now here’s what I’ve found
    To be happy you need only be real
    So don’t let anyone try to turn your head around
    Just remember you are what you feel
    You see all of my life people been tryin to tell me what I am, oh yeah
    Can’t ya see I’ll always be a music man, oh yeah

  13. Golden Country 8:25 Lyrics

    Golden country your face is so red
    With all of your money your poor can be fed
    You strut around and you flirt with disaster
    Never really carin’ just what comes after
    Well your blacks are dyin’ but your back is still turned
    And your freaks are cryin’ but your back is still turned
    You better stop your hidin or your country will burn
    The time has come for you my friend
    To all this ugliness we must put an end
    Before we leave we must make a stand

    Mortgage people you crawl to your homes
    Your security lies in your bed of white foam
    You act concerned but then why turn away
    When a lady was raped on your doorstep today
    Well your blacks are cryin’ but your back is still turned
    And your freaks are dyin’ but your back is still turned
    You better stop your hidin or your country will burn
    The time has come for you my friend
    To all this ugliness we must put an end
    Before we leave we must make a stand, oh yeah……

    And your freaks are cryin’ but your back is still turned
    You better stop your hidin or your country will burn

    To all this ugliness we must put an end
    Before we leave we must make a stand
