Tracklist

Sweat It Out

length: 4:07
Heat goes up and rain won't fall
We've run so far it's time to crawl
And we all forget each lesson learned
We played with fire and now we'll all get burned
Gonna have to sweat it out

Can't ignore it or pass the blame
While lovers walk in acid rain
Feed the world was just a song
They want to bleed the world and build a bomb

Gonna have to sweat it out
But how long will it take
Til the message gets through to you
A change is due, starting here with me and you

Gonna have to sweat it out
Gonna have to work it out

And politicians, theives and banks
Together help us all walk the plank
They offered us the very best
Until our souls are repossessed

If we're so sharp, how come we're falling apart
We've been the fools
We've kept on bending the rules
Our rise and fall has taken no time at all
For what it's worth the meek inherit the earth
What's left behind just makes them angry and blind
Too late to try, just kiss the whole world goodbye

Wheels in Motion

length: 3:21

16 years guaranteed
That you'd get what you want or get what you need
When you realise you ain't gonna get it mve on
Hit, split n quit it
Said you were waiting for the right time to come
Hit the top of the hill - start to run
Set the wheels in motion
Start 'em up, start 'em up
(I'm saying) right here now, set the wheels in motion
And sixteen years never cured your fears
When you opened your eyes could'nt see through the tears
Out on the edge now you must decide to hump off
Flip, flop or fly
Time to get outta here, yes it is
Time we were changin', shiftin' gears
Set the wheels in motion, start 'em up, start 'em up
When it's time to go, set the wheels in motion
Set the wheels in motion, start 'em up, start 'em up
Right here now, set the wheels in motion
Aimed at the middle, primed up like a loaded gun
Ain't nothin' gonna stop you from explodin'
You've been wastin' your time, bein' led by the blind
Yeah, the weight of the world drags you down
Let you bridges be burned, with the lessons you've learned
You shoukd be walkin' on water by now

Stand Up

length: 3:59
I I got somethin' baby on my mind
It's tearin' me up inside
And I got to let loose tonight baby now

I know you, can see what I'm goin through
Everybody telling me what to do,
Well I need somebody to talk to

Well I'm different I can feel the changes
But I can't turn back the pages
And our hearts are all we have to save us
Come on save me tonight

We're gonna ride the night away
Yeah babe we're gonna ride the night away
Well there ain't no time left to borrow
I guess I'll have to think about it tomorrow
We're gonna ride, ride the night away, yeah baby.

I, got a gun pointed at my head
I put it there by myself
I can't ask ya but I need some help, baby now

Let me tell ya hunny
I got a fire burnin' in my soul
Well I'm dangerous and out of control
And tonight I got to let it go.

I can't look back baby I've tried
It's too late for me to compromise
Well I need somebody by my side
Come on save me tonight.

We're gonna ride the night away
Yeah babe we're gonna ride the night away
Well there aint no time left to borrow
I guess I'll have to think about it tomorrow
We're gonna ride, ride the night away.

I can't look back baby I tried
It's too late for me to compromise
Well I need somebody by my side
Come on save me tonight

We're gonna ride the night away
Yeah babe we're gonna ride the night away
Well there ain't no time left to borrow
I guess I'll have to think about it tomorrow
We're gonna ride, ride the night away.

Talking to You

Stone Cold

length: 3:48
When I get home I found you sleeping
I said the words you know are true
And I'm stoned, stone cold in love with you

You don't have to turn the light on
Ain't had more than just a few
And I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you
You don't have to wonder why now
Look at all the things you've been to me
I'll build my whole life on the sweet foundation
You've given, baby you know what I mean

I left my friends back in the poolroom
They'll still be drowning out the blues
I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you

You don't have to wonder why
Look at all the things you've been
My heart lies on the sweet foundation
You'v given, baby you know what I mean

I see your face below the window
I see the moonlight coming through
And I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you
Yes I'm stoned, I'm stone cold in love with you

Wait for Me

length: 4:18

Tears We Cry

length: 6:15
I was alone, then you came along
So unexpected but you made me strong
Never took for granted what I thought was mine

We'd stay together was the plan I had for you and I
Everything seemed right

How could a love that was so special, that it gave you life
Just be taken without warning
I sit here alone and still wonder why

With all the tears we cry
Wash away the pain inside
All the questions are left behind
Floating in the tears we cry

Don't feel the anger and I don't feel the pain
Just an empty space where your loving arms would make my day
There's not a single trace

Now I try to keep believing
It was meant to be
If a God's so demanding
I'd face all he has just to keep you with me

Every time I close my eyes, I see you there
Then I wonder why
I never keep you
Safe and warm

Nothing's gonna change the way you came and went
Just like a summer's day
Just an empty space now that you have gone

Oh, now I keep trying to believe it was meant to be
If there's a God up in heaven
All I know is he ain't looking at me

Right by Your Side

A Little Bit of Love

length: 4:14

I'd Rather Be Blind

length: 4:38
Ain't it strange how opposites attract
Can't explain but it's a proven fact
All I know, can't turn my back on you
Here we are, we're drawn into a flame
No ones fault, no one we can blame
Can't deny you feel the same way too
And I tell you'll be always close at hand
When you feel you'll finally understand
You and I were meant to be as one

Hey girl, we got a love
That I swear will stand the test of time
Can't be here with me, I swear I would rather be blind

I was lost and had nowhere to turn
You came and I began to learn how it feels
You touched down deep in my soul
When you find you need someone to hold you tight
And everything around you don't feel right
Call on me and I'll be there by your side

Hey girl, we got a love that I swear
Will stand the test of time
Can't be here with me, I swear I'll go out of my mind
Oh believe me now, you are the light
That will lead me through the darkest night
If I can't see you with me
I swear I would rather be blind

And I tell you that I will always be closer, hey
When you feel you finally understand
You and I are meant to be as one

Hey girl, you are the light
That will lead me through the darkest night
If I can't see you with me
I swear I would rather be blind
Oh believe me now we got a love
That I swear will stand the test of time
I swear I would rather be blind
Baby, we got a love
That I swear will stand the test of time
Believe me girl, you are the light
That will lead me through the darkest night
I would rather be blind

Not the Loving Kind

Knock Me Down

Catch Your Shadow

length: 3:10
IF THERE'S A WAY TO GET CLOSE TO YOU, I HAVEN'T FOUND IT
I CAN MOVE UP OR BACK AWAY
THE DISTANCE STAYS THE SAME
YOU CAUGHT MY IMAGINATION, YOU CAUGHT ME UNAWARE
NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
I CAN'T EVEN CATCH YOUR SHADOW

IF THERE'S A WAY TO GET NEXT TO YOU, YOU WON'T REVEAL IT
EXCEPT A GLIMPSE OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
THAT KEEPS ME IN THE GAME
YOU CAUGHT MY COMPLETE ATTENTION
AND NOW YOU WON'T LET ME GO
NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
I CAN'T EVEN CATCH YOUR SHADOW

IN SHADOWLAND, OUR SILHOUETTES DANCE ACROSS THE WALL
I'M POWERLESS
WHILE YOU DIRECT WHERE OUR SHADOWS FALL
YOU CAUGHT ME UNDEFENDED, CAPTURED ME WITH A SMILE
BUT NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY
I CAN'T EVEN CATCH YOUR SHADOW
