Lay Down Your Guns

length: 4:02

You picked me up when I was down with nothing
And gave me something , I can't face the world without
You showed me just enough to fuel my fire
My desire, never wanna live without it

Both of us need something like we had before
We can't keep fighting like this anymore
This love affair is breaking my heart

All the pushing and the shoving
When we know that we ought to be loving
And the lying and the cheating
When we ought to be loving and squeezing
Come on come on
Lay down your guns and surrender

Remember days we thought would last forever
Nothing better but we let them slip away
Cause in the end we make the bed we lie in
Lets start trying
What's the point of talking about it

Never seems to make it better
If we can't get on together
Take a chance and try a brand new start

All the pushing and the shoving
When we know that we ought to be loving
And the lying and the cheating
When we ought to be loving and squeezing
Come on come on
Lay down your guns and surrender

Let’s Make It Last All Night

length: 4:08
Baby you say you gotta say goodbye
You tell me that you gotta go
But you don't wanna tell me why
And I wouldn't try to make you stay
Even though it hurts inside
I think you're better off this way
Just before your touch has turned to ice
Baby give me one more taste of paradise

Let's make it last all night
This could be the last time I make love to you
Let's make it last all night
Baby give me something to hold on to
Even if we can't make it right
Baby make it last all night

Baby before you throw it all away
Before goodbye is carved in stone
And then there's nothing left to say
Before you close the door on your desire
Baby give me one more chance to feel your fire

Let's make it last all night
This could be the last time I make love to you
Let's make it last all night
Baby give me something to hold on to
Even if we can't make it right
Baby make it last all night
Before your touch is turned to ice
Give me one more taste of paradise

Little Darling

length: 4:36
I was feeling kind of insecure
In a way I never felt before
I went through my life with no guarantees
I did whatever I wanted whenever I pleased

Before I knew it we were out of the door
And all I wanted was a little bit more
You pulled the strings
And girl I followed you home
Just couldn't wait until I got you alone

I wasn't looking for a love that's true
But theirs no way that I'll get over you
I'm not the kind to sweep you off your feet
But hurry girl because I'm losing sleep

Little darling your the only one
My heart is racing like I'm on the run
Yeah little darling wont you say you're gonna stay with me

Get to your house without the rest of the band
Some of these things don't always turn out as planned
Called me a cab and as I walked out the door
I felt like my heart was gonna fall through the floor

I only wanted to hold you tight
But you made it clear that this just wasn't my night
I didn't mean to get in so deep
Come on hurry darling I'm still loosing sleep

Little darling your the only one
My heart is racing like I'm on the run
Yeah little darling wont you say you're gonna stay with me

Oh little darling take it while were young
Oh little darling we can have ourselves a life or fun

And I wanna tell your momma
And I wanna tell your daddy too
Its just you for me girl
And its just me for you

Little darling your the only one
My heart is racing like I'm on the run
Yeah little darling wont you say you're gonna stay with me
I'm gonna give you everything you need
Just say the word and I'll be on my knees
Oh little darling won't you say your gonna marry me

Love Is Enough

length: 3:49

I don't understand, what you really see
When any other man, could give you more than me
But all that I own, I would gladly give up
As long as I can trust, in the tremble of your touch

I know love is enough I know love is enough
To keep me warm at night
I know love is enough
Turn the dark into light

I know love is enough
You're the one I need
I know love is enough
Every single day, that I spend alone

I felt my life was a river, that was dry as a bone
All I knew was down, till you pulled me up
Brought us face to face, to melt in your embrace
I know love is enough I know love is enough

To keep me warm at night
I know love is enough
Turn the dark into light
I know love is enough
You're the one I need

I know love is enough If I was lost at sea
You would guide me through the night
Through your eyes I'd see, all the shadows turn to light
Tell me that you feel like you never felt before

Tell me this is real
I know I couldn't love you anymore
If this is a dream I don't wanna wake up
It'd be too much to take, I'd have nothing left to give
When I felt the break, I wouldn't wanna live

Cause you're the one who starts, the pounding of my heart
I know love is enough I know love is enough

To keep me warm at night
I know love is enough
Turn the dark into light
I know love is enough
You're the one I need
I know love is enough

Hardline

length: 3:41
Well it's late at night something just ain't right
I can tell by the look in your eye
You didn't say two words
You got a stare that burns
It's gonna be a long long night
Giving me no quarter
When you know you oughta
It's a sin the way you push me around
Yeah you put me down all over town
Did my best never passed your test
Take your shot give it all you've got
Have your fun and I'll just turn and run
Baby take the hard line
For the last time
Baby take the hard line
I'll be better off in the long run
I can take the pressure
If that's what gives you pleasure
And I don't mind if you wanna to fight
You'll get no resistance
Cause two wrongs never make a right
I think we lost control
It's gonna take it's toll
I don't wanna be your whipping boy
This is our last chance
It's time to make a stand
Come on girl can't we say we're sorry
Take your shot give it all you've got
Have your fun and I'll just turn and run
Baby take the hard line
For the last time
Baby take the hard line
I'll be better off in the long run
Come on darling
Tell me what are you waiting for
You're the only one
Who can pick me off the floor

One of a Kind

length: 3:51
Take a run and jump
Straight up front
Maybe I'm just a bit too blunt
Broke my back
It all turned black
I wasn't ready for your love attack
Tried to please
Baby on your knees
Your love's so good
Make a blind man see
Came and went
All been spent
Girl your lovin' must be devil sent
Did'nt wanna get in too deep
And now my hands are tied
Never met a girl who looked so good
With such an appetite
Girl your one of a kind
Won't waste any time
I've got to get my hands on you
Cause I can tell you're something special
Tight skirts
Likes to flirt
She don't stop till it starts to hurt
She's sweet
What a treat
Got to get her into my back seat
Too bad I've been had
If I'd have missed out I'd have been real sad
In need of help can't you tell
You know your loving is an endless well
Like to give you more now baby
But my hands are tied
No excuse cause it ain't no use
I got no alibis
Girl your one of a kind
Won't waste any time
I've got to get my hands on you
Cause I can tell you're something special
Girl your one of a kind
Won't waste any time
I've got to get my hands on you
Cause I can tell you're something special
Don't waste any time
Cause I'm losing my mind
Say you'll be mine
It's a matter of time
Cause I can tell you're something special

When Your Love Is Gone

length: 5:15
Well I thought nothing was wrong, nothing was right
I turned to you, but you were no where in sight
I left it too late, and maybe I hurt your pride
I should have thought of you, now you've changed your mind
And just like a well, your love has run dry
Loneliness was falling from the sky

I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong
I can't help it when your love is gone

Well I missed all the signs, never read between lines
And all I can say to you is that my love was blind
It's breaking my heart, knowing right from the start
You tried to reach for me, now we had to part
And just like a well, your love has run dry
Loneliness was falling from the sky

I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong
I can't help it when your love is gone
And it's all I can do to carry on
I can't help it when your love is gone

Well I'll tell you no lies, you've opened my eyes
Made me feel like a man again
You've walked out that door, and you left me alone
I broke down and I cried, cause I don't think I can make it alone

Ohh... listen.... I would sail the deepest ocean
Just to be by your side again
And all I want, is for you to love me
Just say you love me again, again, again, again

I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong
I can't help it when your love is gone
And it's all I can do just to carry on
I can't help it when your love is gone

I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong
I can't help it when your love is gone
And it's all I can do just to carry on
I can't help it when your love is gone

I'm like a man with no heart, I just don't belong
I can't help it when

Between Two Fires

length: 3:27
You ain't no down loving kind
But you can turn those heads
When you walk in a crowded room
All the men wanna have ya
But the girls want you dead
They say you had every man in town
And you turned your sights on me
You tear my defences down
You can make me smile or give me misery
Caught between two fires
And I know you can see what you put me through
Caught between two fires
And I know I'm gonna burn
I'm on fire over you
Your blood runs burning hot
But you got a hearts that's cold
You're taking everything I got
And you won't be satisfied
Till you got my soul
Caught between two fires
And I know you can see what you put me through
Caught between two fires
Losing control since I first met you
Caught between two fires
I'm gonna burn in hell
Cause I'm on fire over you
Girl I can't walk away
Cause I can't live without you anymore
And I gotta see this through
Nothing can stop me girl I'd die for you
Caught between two fires
And I know you can see what you put me through
Caught between two fires
And I know I'm gonna burn
I'm on fire over you
Caught between two fires
Losing control since I first met you
Caught between two fires
I'm gonna burn in hell
Cause I'm on fire over you

Fade to Black

length: 4:20
I'll be with you tonight
Far away from the noise of the crowd
I'm gonna cash in my dreams
I got no use for them now
Come on turn on the light
There is too much to lose
So give me something to believe in
When day fades to black
I won't look back, of that I'm certain
When day fades to black
I won't look back at all

I wanna get of this one way street
Don't want to be among the faceless
Here I am one of the living dead
Murdered by the streets that surround me

Can't knock me down in this fight
I don't know how to lose
These city walls that try to confine me
Won't bring me down on my knees
This ain't no time to be lonely
Cause there ain't nothing that's left
here to hold me
I can't be bought with a handful of dreams
And the promises I can't believe in

I wanna get of this one way street
Don't want to be among the faceless
Here I am one of the living dead
Murdered by the streets that surround me

Hold On
