Lyrics

Thought police a step behind

Creeping up on you

Preacher man, axe to grind

Lying 'bout what’s true…

Saints go in marching blind

The devil comes a’ calling

Angels working overtime

Keep the sky from falling


Blow by blow- Hand to hand

Friend or foe - In No Man's land

Touch and go - Cold as steel

I said, touch and go...

Keepin' it real


Snakeman talk in riddles 

Evil waits its turn

Surely Nero fiddles

While a billion Ground Zeroes burn...

Jet plane dove out of the sky

Struck that window pane

Shot the whole world through the eye

The Lord took his name in vain…


Blow by blow- Hand to hand

Friend or foe - In No Man's land

Touch and go - Cold as steel

I said, touch and go...

Keepin' it real


Running out of juice in this human race

Need a double dose of amazing grace


Blow by blow- Hand to hand

Friend or foe - In No Man's land

Touch and go - Cold as steel

I said, touch and go...

Keepin' it real

Lyrics

Lift your archer’s bow

Aim at my desire

Launch a flame arrow

Ignite the breath of fire


Love or war, decide

The games all Gods declare

Love or war, let’s ride

With you I’ll take that dare


Reach your steady hand

Raise the golden knife

Throw straight and true

Strike now, save my life


Love or war, begin

Attack at your command

Love or war, we’re in

Let’s make a fighting stand

Love or War

Lyrics

I'd leave this thing behind

Believe me I have tried

Force a change of mind

To my heart I've lied…

Turning like a top

Imagining your touch

Powerless to stop

I'm saying far too much


Something so clear… becoming so strong

We've always been here - all along

Feeling so right… is doing no wrong

We've always been here - all along


Holed up in my place

Desire reigns supreme

Helpless to erase

This living in a dream...

Ruled by this affair

Reeling from it all

Leading who knows where

Riding for a fall


Something so clear… becoming so strong

We've always been here - all along

Feeling so right… is doing no one wrong

We've always been here - all along


The mind says no

The heart says yes

All could go on one caress


Something so clear… becoming so strong

We've always been here - all along

Feeling so right… is doing no one wrong

We've always been here - all along

Lyrics

The taste is bittersweet, the thrill is jaded

Tryin’ to remember to forget your name

The photograph is frayed and faded

Lady, lose my number, if it’s all the same


Stayin’ home, stay insane

Like the moon you wax and wane           

A heavy rain… rainin’ hard… really comin’ down…

Heavy rain on Memory Lane


The dance is done, the band is gone

But in my head you pirouette

Love’s labors lost best forgotten

Wish you’d dim to silhouette 


Stayin’ home, stay insane

Jumping off that same old train

A heavy rain… rainin’ hard… really comin’ down…

Heavy rain on Memory Lane


What a weary world that turns like this

Foolish and fickle as a kiss

Your watercolors bleed and stain


A heavy rain…rainin’ hard… really comin’ down…

Heavy rain on Memory Lane

A heavy rain… rainin’ hard… really comin’ down…

Heavy rain on Memory Lane

Lyrics

Some pray for sleep, pray they wake

A king building castles or a common bricklayer

Their soul to keep, the Lord to take

They're sendin’ it up on a wing and a prayer


All prayed out – do as I please

All prayed out – off of my knees

Talkin' about – I'm all prayed out


Whispered prayer just a-goes unheard,

Power of prayer ain't keepin’ us safe

Short on deed, just a-long on word

Unanswered prayer just a shakin' my faith


All prayed out – do as I please

All prayed out – off of my knees

Talkin' about – I'm all prayed out


See, I got no more penance, no more to give

Trust in yourself – you'll know how to live


Pray for redemption, pray for rain

Pray for release, pray in vain

A prayer for the living, and the dead

Pray whatever comes into your head

Who you believe in may hear you shout

But just by chance – he's all prayed out


All prayed out – do as I please

All prayed out – off of my knees

Talkin' about – I'm all prayed out

Lyrics

She took me by the hand

 Sat me down said understand

 To beat this thing I must fight

 If you can't, well, that's all right

 

I said, if there's a magic word

 From the Great Beyond

 A hope of being heard

 I would wave a wand…

 

Cast a coin in the wishing well

 Twist of fate, only time will tell

 But let me say this clear as a bell

This is Love with a Capital "L"

 

She told me she won't break

Can't afford one mistake

And if this means we've reached the end

She won't fret what might-have-been

 

I said, if there's a magic word

From the Great Beyond

A hope of being heard

I would wave a wand…

 

Cast a coin in the wishing well

Twist of fate, only time will tell

But let me say this clear as a bell

This is Love with a Capital "L"

 

Hold on – hold on

Sweetheart, together we stand

Helping you heal

I'm yours - yours to command

This is for real…

 

Cast a coin in the wishing well

Twist of fate, only time will tell

But let me say this clear as a bell

This is Love with a Capital "L"

Lyrics

Midnight in Cairo, the club was packed

Sleeper agent at the bar

I burned a smoke, she played her act

So surreal like Film Noir


If looks could kill, I'd be dead

It’s a dangerous bet – playin’…

Undercover roulette - undercover roulette


Cool and chic, serpent smile

Saw the writing on the wall

Ancient wind off the Nile

Falcon could not hear the call...


If looks could kill, I'd be dead

It’s a dangerous bet – playin’…

Undercover roulette – undercover roulette

Such a dangerous bet, undercover roulette


Shifting sands, hot as fire

Desert mirage glowing red

The Phoenix burns on the pyre

Sleeping – in the enemy's bed 


Lawless land foreign affair

Checked our weapons at the door

Gave up all but the nom de guerre

Waged our own private war


If looks could kill, I'd be dead

It’s a dangerous bet – playin’…

Undercover roulette – undercover roulette

Such a dangerous bet, undercover roulette

Lyrics

Never played it safe in a tight pinch

Chased my fate, made my plan

Took some hits, never pays to flinch

Followed my lead being my own man


Lessons are learned

No point in preaching

Bridges get burned

If you fall, fall reaching


Got some scars, showing my spirit

Dealt my hand, refused to fold

Type of guy to suck up and bear it

At my last stand, I’m going down bold


Tables get turned

No way of teaching

It comes hard earned

If you fall, fall reaching


Want what I want, I loved a lot

First in a flash through the door

Before I get old I’ll sure enough die

Yearning for more…


Point of no return…

If you fall, fall reaching

Lyrics

Let's get lost we're not too old

To chase this childish dream

If we believe we can hold

To this foolish scheme

Build a boat, set a sail

Catch the balmy breeze

Vanish well beyond the veil

Damn these blackish seas


The dark is a light

A light all its own

The dark is a light, a light all its own

So alive, alive, come alive...


Let's let go the dead old days

Dancing on their grave

Though the wind works its ways

We'll not the white flag wave

Shadowed night turn deaf ear

Drown the shipwrecked cries

Siren shoals we'll steer clear

If you will be my eyes


The dark is a light

A light all its own

The dark is a light, a light all its own

So alive, alive, come alive...


It's desire deep in the bone

The fire in a heart of stone

Higher than you can climb alone


The dark is a light

A light all its own

The dark is a light, a light all its own

So alive, alive, come alive...

Lyrics

The girl got a place she go to groove

Took me there, made her move

Yeah, we mixed some drinks, then got high

She dropped an ice cube to melt on her thigh


In slow motion - just a movin’

Slow motion - just a breathin’…slow motion


She drew the blinds, stripped my shirt

Turned her hip, unhooked her skirt

We went down deep lost in that room

Drifting away on her perfume


In slow motion - just a movin’

Slow motion - just a breathin’…slow motion


Feel the need of nowhere to go

And the crazy way we went there slow

You turn me on, I can’t get enough

Of the tender way you love me tough


In slow motion - just a movin’

Slow motion - just a breathin’…slow motion

Lyrics

All my stolen glances

Of you, my soul mate my friend

I place these snapshot romances

In a book, so you’ll understand…


Turn the pages – a tale they will tell

Of a secret admirer you know so well

Turn the pages – get to the end

See I’ve left room to start over again


All my stolen glances

Of you, my reason my rhyme

See how each one dances

A moment of time out-of-time


Turn the pages – these glimpses of you

Capture my eye in colors so true

Turn the pages – see what I see

Me loving you, so joyfully…


You kiss me goodnight, then close your eyes

It’s late, you’ve had a long day

Framing your face in my memory

So nothing can take it away…


Turn the pages – find there a treasure

Of all of my favorite chances

Turn the pages – weigh the real measure

Of all my stolen glances


Turn the pages – a tale they will tell

Of a secret admirer you know so well

Turn the pages – get to the end

See I’ve left room to start over again

Lyrics

When me the fire has forsaken

And I'm down on wounded knee

When from me have been taken

The dreams of boys that set men free


Into the fray - Taken by storm

Try as I may - Taken by storm

I'm swept away - Taken by storm


To bottomless blue myself I cast

Surrender my soul to the abyss

Holding my breath as if it's the last

Sacrifice to your siren kiss


Into the fray - Taken by storm

Try as I may - Taken by storm

I'm swept away - Taken by storm


Love is a hunter

It gets what it comes for

A slave to its hunger,

I invite the wolf to the door


Into the fray - Taken by storm

Try as I may - Taken by storm

Can’t hold at bay - Taken by storm

I'm swept away - Taken by storm
