  1. Heavy On Your Love 3:34 Lyrics

    I’m gettin’ heavy on your love
    Every night
    Gettin’ ready for your love
    With all of my might
    I was crazy for your love
    Never stayed around you love
    Aw but you make me deadly

    I was lost but now I’ve found
    Havin’ you around has made me heavy,
    Heavy on your love.

    Heavy on your love,
    Old enough to wait
    Got a letter full of love
    And it’s just about to break
    Cause my love was never real
    I could touch but never feel
    Ah, but you make me deadly

    I was lost but now I’ve found
    Havin’ you around has made me heavy,
    Heavy on your love

  2. Drop It (An Old Disguise) 3:12 Lyrics

    I’ve been trying to run my life
    Using every trick I knew.
    I say anything anytime to anybody.
    I do what I always wanted to.
    But that’s no way to keep me happy.
    It’s an old disguise.
    I may be wealthy but I can still be wise
    Drop my old disguise.

    I can’t seem to end my day
    Until I feel something’s said and done.
    A flashy guitar or a hot new car
    Or at least a little fun.
    But that’s no way to keep me healthy.
    It’s an old disguise.
    I may be wealthy but I can still be wise
    Drop my old disguise.

    Drop it. Drop it. It’s an old disguise.
    Drop it. Drop it. Open up your eyes.
    Drop it. Drop it. You ain’t got nine lives
    Drop it. Drop it.

  3. Only the Strong Survive 3:52 Lyrics

    You may not know this but you are everything you’ve ever needed.
    Heaven with a touch of New York. Silver with a touch of gold.
    And I can see where you’re goin’, but I don’t really know the way.
    It’s got too many changes, too much rearranging,
    Too many ways to go astray.

    So if you wanna go, let me go along
    I never walked that road alone
    I heard it was hard
    I heard it was long
    But we’ll come back alive
    ‘Cause only the strong survive

    You walk on a wire, make a game of desire, pitchin’ pennies down a wishing well.
    You’re leading the blind through there high and low times, but baby can you lead yourself?
    So calm down, honey, forget about the money. If you need me I’ll always be there.
    Go ride your high horse alone of course
    ‘Cause if you need me I’ll always care

  4. Easy Money 3:59 Lyrics

    South of the border and busted,
    Caught by a woman I trusted,
    Now don’t you call me a fool,
    It could have happened to you,
    It’s just my luck,
    It had to happen to me.

    Sweet Carmelita betrayed me
    She said, “Take me home, serenade me.”
    I figured a song could do me no wrong.
    I didn’t know how wrong I could be.

    Easy money for just one run to Peru.
    It’ll be so easy. We’ll have no trouble gettin’ through.
    Well I almost made it, except for that one border guard.
    He opened up my guitar. Hello prison yard.
    Goodbye easy money. Easy money.

    The chiquita must have told ’em my story
    ‘Cause when my eyes finally focused next morning
    Carmelita had spoken ’bout guitars and some coke
    And she laughed as they slapped me in chains.

    I was thrown in cell with a killer.
    A convict who coughed through the night.
    While I laid awake with the chills and shakes,
    Hoping for a file in a cake.

    Easy money for just one run to Peru.
    It’ll be so easy. We’ll have no trouble gettin’ through.
    Well I almost made it, except for that one border guard.
    He opened up my guitar. Hello prison yard.
    Just to make me mad he smashed my guitar.
    Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye,
    Easy money

  6. Take Me 3:29 Lyrics

    I always wondered if I could give
    Enough love for a woman to live on
    But as I grow, as I learn and live,
    I find it’s best to forget and forgive.

    I could be dancing on the ocean.
    I could be singing to the sea.
    But I am poetry in motion.
    I’m yours!

    When I was young I was so filled with love,
    Jealousy stung but never deep enough
    ‘Cause I feel rain falling from above.
    I only thirst for your to share my cup.

    I could be dancing on the ocean.
    I could be singing to the sea.
    But I am poetry in motion.
    I’m yours, people. Take me.

  7. I Need You Tonight 3:34 Lyrics

    How can I show you?
    I take back what I told you.
    ‘Cause something happens when I hold you,
    And that makes everything all right.

    And oh… oh… I need you tonight.
    I just need you tonight.
    I wrote all I can write.
    I just need you tonight.

    In need you tonight.

    Secrets I keep here.
    Buried so very deep here.
    If only somehow you could sleep here,
    you’d make everything all right.

  8. Meet Me On The Mountain 4:04 Lyrics

    I remember it well, that day last spring,
    When the snow lay deep on the mountain trails.
    It was winter’s last showin’ and our last fling
    Before returning to our lives in the valley.

    We pretended we were lost in the wilderness,
    And I pretended to be your guide.
    Our love was a play and you were the actress.
    We were two lonely people living out a dream.

    Oh, baby meet me on the mountain
    when the winter is dying
    and the snow lay deep on the mountain trails.
    Maybe it’s the spring putting thoughts in our heads.
    But baby meet me on the mountain
    when the winter lays her head to rest.

    As the morning came, the feelings faded.
    They melted away with the dew.
    And if it hurt, I never felt it,
    ‘Cause I knew that you’d be leavin’ me soon.

    Come on, baby meet me on the mountain
    when the winter is dying
    and the snow lay deep on the mountain trails.
    Maybe it’s the spring putting thoughts in our heads.
    But baby meet me on the mountain
    when the winter lays her head to rest.

  9. Back on The Road Again 5:39 Lyrics

    Please don’t hate me mama for what I’m about to do
    But the good times we’ve had together are just about now through
    Please don’t misunderstand me, I hate to see you cry
    But I think that it might look better if I told you now goodbye

    I’m back on the road again, it’s time I leave you now
    And maybe I’ll see you next time, that I’m around
    Until then I hope your happy baby and good times come your way
    I’m back on the road again, I’m on my way

    Well I’ve loved you since the day I met you and I’ll love you till the day I die
    But we both know the life I’m livin and we both know the reason why
    That I’ve got to leave ya mama and I’ve got to leave today
    But you know that I’ll see you next time that I come through your town to play

    (chorus) ooh, bye-bye baby

    (solo)

    (chorus)
