Ravishing

length: 6:27

When the sun is burning out
And the night is pouring in
Now is the time to run, run boy
Now is the time to hide

There's nobody out on the beach
There's nobody down in the woods
We're gonna do it alone
Were gonna do it outside

And I can feel the air it's sticking to our skin so tight
And I can feel there's something in this air tonight-
I really got it bad
Tonight I really got it bad
Tonight I really got it bad
But it's still so good, so good
That I got it at all and it was

Ravishing, ravishing
And I love to see the moonlight
See it shimmer down my dress
It's so ravishing, ravishing
And the wind is like a finger
Tracing patterns on your chest
You're so ravishing

And I know
This is the season that we make our move
This is the season we've got something to prove
And this is the season I've got something to lose
Oh, it's now or it's never
So now and forever, we're

Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-wo-wo
Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-wo-wo
Ravishing, ravishing oh-wo-wo

It's all right
Well be ravishing each other till the end of this endless night
It's all right, so right, it's all right, so right

And if an angel broke his wings
Would he come to you for parts
I need a couple of wings boy, boy
I need a reason to soar

And if the devil lost his fire
Could he count on you for sparks
There's something we ought to try now
We ought to try it some more-

Than anything I ever wanted was to see the light
And there's a chance that we'll be glowing in the dark tonight-

I really got it bad
Tonight really got it bad
I really got it bad
Tonight I really got it bad
But it still felt good so good
Just to get it at all, and it's so

Ravishing, ravishing
And I can't believe the way the stars are shooting through your hair
You're so ravishing, ravishing
And it's just my luck tonight I don't have anything to wear
We're so ravishing

This is the season that we make our move
This is the season we've got something to prove
This is the season I've got something to lose
And all we ever really needed was

Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-wo-wo
Ravishing, ravishing
Oh~wo-wo
Ravishing, ravishing oh-wo-wo

It's all right
We'll be ravishing each other till the end of this endless night
It's all right, so right, it's all right, so right

If You Were a Woman (and I Was a Man)

length: 5:17
composer: Desmond Child
lyricist: Desmond Child
How's it feel to be a woman
How's it feel to be a man
Are we really that different
Tell me where you stand
I look at you, you look away
Why do you say we're night and day
I'd like to try another way
Oh baby for just one day

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart's a heart and we do what we can
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man

How's it feel to be the hunter
How's it feel to be the prey
Is there really a reason
For this game we play
I look at you, you look away

Why do you say we're night and day
I'd like to try another day
Oh darling, just one day

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a heart's a heart and we do what we can
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man

Hey, we're just two people trying to love
Oh but how, how can we love
With this wall between us, holding us back

If you were a woman and I was a man
Would it be so hard to understand
That a hearts a heart and we do what we can
If you were a woman and I was a man
If you were a woman and I was a man

Loving You's a Dirty Job but Somebody's Gotta Do It

length: 7:49
composer: Jim Steinman
lyricist: Jim Steinman
When the sky is falling and you're looking round for somewhere to hide
Did you ever call out to someone, did you ever call out to me

I've never been gone, I've been right here by your side
There ain't nothin' but clouds, there ain't nothin' but clouds in your eyes

Why don't you believe it when you finally found the truth
You've been drinking poison water from the fountain of youth

Why don't you stop tearing up everyone you need the most
You're so busy trying to get even, you never even try to get close

I can't explain it away, it doesn't make any sense
To know what it's like, I guess you gotta go through it
I guess you gotta go through it, I guess you gotta go through it
It doesn't matter, baby

Loving you's a dirty job
But somebody's gotta do it

There were times when we'd never fake it
There were times when we'd always make it
There were times when we'd take it to the limit
And we'd never, never, ever leave each other alone

We were flesh and blood and bone
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

There were times when we took our chances
There were times when we were damn good dancers
There were times when we heard all the answers
In the beating of the drummer and the riches of the rock and the roll

I can see right through your soul
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

If your fears could only be forgotten, we could pull all of the barriers down
Would you follow your dreams' desire
Would you follow your secret dreams and forbidden fire
Let's just peel out of this town

It's been nothing but dreams
It's been nothing but dreams until now

You're never gonna see it
You got your head stuck in the sand
It's the land of the free and easy Street
It's the home of the damned

You're never gonna see it
You better open up your eyes
You're the only one who's left
Who's gonna believe all your lies

I can't explain it away, it doesn't make any sense
To know what it's like, I guess you gotta go through it
I guess you gotta go through it, I guess you gotta go through it
It doesn't matter, baby

Loving you's a dirty job
But somebody's gotta do it

There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can't stop missing
There were times that we'd lay in bed and listen
To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts

Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars
There were times we extinguished every fire
That was burning, burning, burning up each other alive

From the heavens on down to the dives
There were times we lost it all
There were times we lost it all

There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars

There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can't stop missing
There were times that we'd lay in bed and listen
To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts

Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

It's a dirty job, loving you, baby
Somebody's gotta do it

It's a dirty job, loving you, baby
Somebody's gotta do it

It's a dirty job, loving you, baby
Somebody's gotta do it

No Way to Treat a Lady

length: 5:19
writer: Bryan Adams, Jim Vallance
You can please me
You can sweet talk and lead me on
But believe me
Won't be long till I'm catching on
Now you left me here with nothing
And you put my love on hold
Well there must be something behind those eyes
Because I believe every lie you told
That ain't no way to treat a lady
That ain't no way to treat a woman in love
That ain't no way to treat a lady
I could of sworn that you'd had enough
So you leave me
Well I'm lonely and in despair
It intrigues me
How you don't really seem to care.
Well I ain't here for nothing
And my love doesn't come that cheap
I will hold you to all your promises
If I could find one you meant to keep
That ain't ain't no way to treat a lady
That ain't no way to treat a woman in love
That ain't ain't no way to treat a lady
That ain't no way, no way to treat a woman in love
You can tease me
You can sweet talk and lead me on
But believe me
Won't be long till I'm catching on
For I ain't here for nothing
And my love doesn't come that cheap
And I will hold you to all your promises
If I could find one you meant to keep

Band of Gold

length: 5:52
writer: Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, Ronald Dunbar, Eddie Holland
Now that you've gone
All that's left is a band of gold
All that's left of the dreams I hold
Is a band of gold
And the memories
Of what love could be
If you were
Still here with me

You took me from the shelter of a mother I had never known
The love of any other
We kissed after taking vows
But that night on our honeymoon
We stayed in separate rooms

I waited in the darkness of my lonely room
Filled with sadness, filled with gloom
Hoping soon
That you'd walk right through that door
And love me
Liked you tried before

Now that you're gone
All that's left is a band of gold
All that's left of the dreams I hold
Is a band of gold
And the memories of what love could be
If you were still here with me

Since you've been gone
All that's left is a band of gold
All that's left of the dreams I hold
Is a band of gold

Rebel Without a Clue

length: 8:37
You're a tough tail-gunner in a pitch black Chevy
Cruising in the moonlight
Ooh your aim is steady
Your eyes are hungry and your hands are ready
You shot me where you wanted
You put me in a daze

No matter where you go, you'll always be a stranger
Getting into trouble, getting off on danger
Riding out of town like a cool lone ranger
When there's nothing to lose, you gotta call your own plays
Did anybody say something incredibly stupid
Like there isn't any paradise
But I remember the songs and I remember the story
I remember the thrills and I remember the glory

So hold me hold me in your arms
Deliver me from growing old
Hold me hold me in your arms
Shelter me from going cold
I'm a shot in the dark without you
A rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue
I don't know what to say and I don't know what to do
Standing on the corner in my boots and my leather
A little over the edge, a little under the weather
Just a rebel without a clue
I'm tired an lonely and crying for you
I know just when to sulk and I know just how to pose
Dirty Harry to Madonna
I've been learning all the roles

So hold me baby, hold me a little longer
Need me baby just a little stronger tonight
Move it darling move a little quicker
Prove it darling blood is really thicker tonight
Drive on darling drive a little farther
Dream on darling dream a little harder tonight
Teach me baby teach me how to love you
Without me you're just another rebel without a clue

It's been a long hot summer and it's just the beginning
So keep our motor running and your tires spinning
So many places that I've wanted to be in
Take me where you're going away beyond above
We'll see a little action, relieve a little tension
Stuff I'd like to try that I shouldn't even mention
I've gone so far already I'm way beyond redemption
There's nothing to it really I think they call it love

Did anybody say something incredibly stupid
Like there isn't any paradise
But I remember the songs and I remember the story
I remember the thrills and I remember the glory

So hold me hold me in your arms
Deliver me from growing old
Hold me hold me in your arms
Shelter me from going cold
I'm a shot in the dark without you
A rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue
I don't know what to say and I don't know what to do
Standing on the corner in my boots and my leather
A little over the edge, a little under the weather
Just a rebel without a clue
I'm tired and lonely and crying for you
I know just when to sulk and I know just how to pose
Dirty Harry to Madonna
I've been learning all the roles

So hold me baby, hold me a little longer
Need me baby just a little stronger tonight
Move it darling move a little quicker
Prove it darling blood is really thicker tonight
Drive on darling drive a little farther
Dream on darling dream a little harder tonight
Teach me baby teach me how to love you
Without me you're just another rebel without a clue

Lovers Again

length: 4:33
composer: Desmond Child
lyricist: Desmond Child
I got pictures of you in funny poses
Letters from you with pressed yellow roses
I've got souvenirs of fun times together
And I'll cherish those years and you can bet I'm forever

I know we'll be lovers again, darling
I know we'll be lovers again
It's a matter of time
Till you see that I'm,
The one in the end, I was your friend
Lovers again,

I got pictures of you with stolen kisses
We looked so young and so full of promise
And we had those dreams
But they're not forgotten
'Cause I'll build that house with the yellow rose garden

I know we'll be lovers again, darling
I know we'll be lovers again
It's a matter of time
Till you see that I'm
The one in the end, I was your friend
Lovers again

There's a picture of you in yesterday's paper
With that smile I knew and the new name you've taken
And I'll live each day without being bitter
'Cause we weren't that way
And I know it's not over

I know we'll be lovers again, darling
I know we'll be lovers again
It's a matter of time
Till you see that I'm
The one waiting there and in the end
We'll be lovers again

Before This Night Is Through

length: 5:24
I been crazy for you, so long
How could something so right turn out so wrong
Words, never mean what they say
Words just get in the way

Before this night is through
Gonna make you see
How l been blind to you
You been blind to me
Before this night is through were gonna get to the truth

Before this night is through
Gonna heal the pain
Before this night is through
You'll be back again
No matter what we do I know we'll be all right
Before this night is through

Hearts broken in pieces no time to mend
Without loving they fall apart in the end
Fools, never admit they're wrong
They live their lives alone

Before this night is through
Girl we're gonna see how I belong to you
You belong to me
Before this night is through were gonna get to the truth
Before this night is through
We'll get past the pain
Before this night is through
You'll be back again
No matter what we do I know we'll be ll right
Before this night is through

Come inside close the door come to me now
We'll find our way we know how
Let the past be the past let it all fall away
Baby I know we told lies and to lie is a sin
We'll get to the truth we will simply begin

Before this night is through were gonna get to the truth
Before this night is through
We'll get past the pain
Before this night is through
You'll come back again
No matter what we do I know we'll be all right
Before this night, before this night is through

Holding Out for a Hero

length: 5:50
composer: Jim Steinman
lyricist: Dean Pitchford
Where have all good men gone, and where are all the gods?
Where's the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night, I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast, and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon, and he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight, in my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach, there's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It's gonna take a Superman to sweep me off my feet...

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast, and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon, and he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear there is someone, somewhere, watching me
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast, and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure, and it's gotta be soon, and he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
