2000!

 

It´s Only Money

 

I believed in god and country

I believed just what the politicians said

Don´t wanna live in an ivory tower

Just want a roof over my head

 

Your little lies are getting old

Your shangri la ain´t got no gold

 

Chorus:

It´s only money - you´ll never get enough

It´s only money - and getting it is tough

But money can´t buy my soul no more

 

You raise the rent then you raise the taxes

You turn the screws yeah you know just where to squeeze

ou always got one hand in my pocket

You bring me down but you´ll never bring me to my knees

 

It´s gonna get worse so I´ve been told

But I can take the heat on the long hard road

 

Chorus:

It´s only money - you´ll never get enough

It´s only money - and getting it is tough

But money can´t buy my soul

can´t buy my soul no more

 

When the walls came tumblin´ down

And you promised us a better life with rags to riches

Now I feel like a broken hearted clown

The mistakes have all been made

And the aces in the deck have all been played

 

 

By The Riverside

 

I feel your fingers runnin´ through my hair

But then it´s only the wind

They say there´s nothin´ more than desert there

And it feels fire when I breathe in

 

I know you wanna be the faithful one

And I believe that you can

I know you only want your happiness

And the true love of a good man

 

If I can´t be the one to fill those dreams

then I can take your good-bye

But if you´re really comin´ back to me

I swear until the day I die

 

Chorus:

I´ll be waiting by the riverside

cool white water runnin´ deep and wide

I´ll be waiting by the riverside

when you come back home

when you´re all alone

I will be a rock among the rolling stone

 

There´s nothin´ I wouldn´t do

If I got to fight forever girl I will

It´s never to much when I love you

 

And so before you go to sleep tonight

Just think about it should be

I´m holdin´ on to you with all my might

Girl until you´re here with me

 

Chorus:

I´ll be waiting by the riverside

cool white water runnin´ deep and wide

I´ll be waiting by the riverside

when you come back home

when you´re all alone

I will be a rock among the rolling stone

 

When the sun goes down

When the floods come up

Gonna take you home

Gonna fill you up

Cause I can´t let go

When I know it´s love

When you´re in my arms

It´s never enough

 

There´s nothin´ I wouldn´t do

 

 

Where Would I Be

 

Another day of getting nowhere

Working hard and losing ground

All my life has been a battle to survive

There are times when I forget what I have found

 

But when I come home late and see your face

You look up and smile

And suddenly I find my place

 

Chorus:

Without your love where would I be

Without your eyes what would I see

 You give my life its meaning

You´re the reason I keep on breathing

Without your love where would I be

 

Every morning when I wake up

I think about my hopes and fears, yeah

How could I handle them without you by my side

All my heart and soul would slowly disappear

When I´m feelin´ down 

And really blue

You´re the one who´s there

to pull me up and see me through

 

Chorus:

Without your love where would I be

Without your eyes what would I see

 You give my life its meaning

You´re the reason I keep on breathing

Without your love where would I be

 

The times I lose direction

Realize my imperfection

You make me strong

yeah, without you I´m gone

 

Chorus:

Without your love where would I be

Without your eyes what would I see

 You give my life its meaning

You´re the reason I keep on breathing

Without your love where would I be

Whithout you where would I be

 

 

Wanted

 

Why Is the fire cold in your heart

I could swear there was a spark

Now I´m standin´ in the dark

Why do you turn away when I feel week

Now I´m talkin´ in my sleep

And I´m fallin´ way too deep

 

Save me take me

Help me understand

Hold me show me

I´m just an ordinary man

 

Chorus:

I wanna be wanted

Say i´m the only one

I wanna be wanted

Ohh, why can´t you see I wanna be wanted

 

I pray that you say these words

I´m waiting for

Cause I´ve been knockin´ at your door

But you can´t hear me anymore

 

Save me take me

Help me understand

Hold me show me

I´m just an ordinary man

 

Chorus:

I wanna be wanted

Say i´m the only one

I wanna be wanted

Ohh, why can´t you see I wanna be wanted

Wanna be wanted

 

If it rains without a warnin´ 

Can´t you keep this bed from burnin´ 

Would you stay until the mornin´ comes

 

 

Close Your Eyes And Say Goodbye

 

Oh the engine´s runnin´ and I must go

I´ve got a long drive and a longer night

Oh just close your eyes until the doors  close

And cause ya can´t turn back when it fades to black

 

And through the night

Just think about how we couldn´t make it right yeah

And in your dreams

Don´t dream about what will never ever be just

Go live your life

Like a lesson learned

And be glad when you turn out the lights

 

Chorus:

Oh close your eyes and say goodbye

Don´t look back or into my eyes

Don´t hold on just be strong

Won´t be long oh darlin´ 

Close your eyes and say goodbye

 

Oh this truck stop just seems so far away

There´s just a midnight cop and a runaway

Oh the waitress listens to my said life

She hears the same old story every day and night

 

I´d turn around

But we´d burned our love right to the groung

I´d call you up

And I´d hear your voice but it wouldn´t be enough now

I´d try again

But it wouldn´t work out

And we´de face the end again

 

Chorus:

Oh close your eyes and say goodbye

Don´t look back or into my eyes

Don´t hold on just be strong

Won´t be long oh darlin´ 

Close your eyes and say goodbye

 

Oh close the book and throw it away

Don´t remember all of the joy

Only the pain

And when we say goodnight

Close your eyes and say goodbye

 

I´d turn around

But we´d burned our love right to the groung

I´d call you up

And I´d hear your voice but it wouldn´t be enough now

I´d try again

But it wouldn´t work out

And we´de face the end again

And we both got lives waitin´ round the bend

 

Chorus

 

 

Waiting

 

I never thought love would ever find me

Time after time it seemed to pass me by

Once in a while I said yeah this is it

I could never last in a lie

 

Restlessness hangin´ around like cigarette smoke

Loneliness following me like a shadow

 

Chorus:

All the times

There was nothin´ inside

All the rides on the carrousel

And the nights all alone in the dark

I was just waiting for you

It was all I coud do

I was just waiting for you

 

You came around and I was expecting

Just another spin on the merry-go-round

Minute to minute you opened my eyes

and led me up to higher ground

 

Tenderness healing the scars so deep in my soul

Oh promises easy to make cause now I know

 

Chorus:

All the times

There was nothin´ inside

All the rides on the carrousel

And the nights all alone in the dark

I was just waiting for you

It was all I coud do

I was just waiting for you

 

After all the emptiness

I´ve had to live

forever is what I want to give

 

 

Can´t hold back

 

I was waiting for the glove to fall

Staring at the pictures hanin´ on my wall

Maybe I´ve had my chance

Maybe there´s no way back

But I´ll just climb this mountain

One more time turn my eyes to the sky

 

Chorus:

Cause I can´t hold back now

I can´t hold back

When I lie awake every breath I take

Belongs to you somehow

 

Belongs to you somehow

 

I was frozen like a photograph

There inside the stillness of love´s epitaph

 

Baby these streets are cold

IAnd I need your arms to hold

But I´ll just climb this mountain

One more time turn my eyes to the sky

 

Chorus:

Cause I can´t hold back now

I can´t hold back

When I lie awake every breath I take

Belongs to you somehow

 

And on these streets we´ll gather

This life forever after baby

 

 

Maybe there´s no way back

But I´ll just climb this mountain

One more time turn my eyes to the sky

 

Chorus:

Cause I can´t hold back now

I can´t hold back

When I lie awake every breath I take

Belongs to you somehow

 

 I just turn my eyes up to the sky

 

 

I´m Not Looking For An Angel

 

You ain´t no convent cutie

You never never do your duty

You ain´t never gonna earn a halo

You make a livin´ on the devil´s payroll

 

And in the dark you come to life

You´re so wicked you would burn up in the naked light

I can´t wait to hear your lies tonight

 

Chorus:

I´m not lookin´ for an angel

I need someone who´s as bad as you

I´m not lookin´ for an angel

You´re no good girl

That´s why I want you

 

Your heart is void of mercy

Your blood is cold and thursty

Your lips are spittin´ fire

And the flames are gettin´ higher

 

And in the mornin´ you are gone

You have left me here to die

your dirty deed is done

I´m addicted to the pain of love

 

Chorus:

I´m not lookin´ for an angel

I need someone who´s as bad as you

I´m not lookin´ for an angel

You´re no good girl

That´s why I want you

 

I´m not lookin´ for an angel

You´re on fire and I can´t get anough

I´m not lookin´ for an angel

I´m addicted to the pain of your love

 

 

Aim For The Heart

 

On my own

Never felt so alone

The streets are the only place I can call home

Where´s my dream

What´s it mean to me now

What´s it mean when you´re down for the count

You gotta get up and keep on fightin´ 

 

Chorus:

Aim for the heart

It´s your life and you only live one time

Aim for the heart and you get what you need

It´s a shot in the dark

Make it count cause it might just be your last chance

You only got one shot

Baby aim for the heart

 

Time goes by

And you ain´t gettin´ nowhere

Makes you wonder why you´re tryin´ at all

But inyour soul

You can still feel the fire

You can still find your way through the night

All you gotta do is keep on dreamin´ 

 

Chorus:

Aim for the heart

It´s your life and you only live one time

Aim for the heart and you get what you need

It´s a shot in the dark

Make it count cause it might just be your last chance

You only got one shot

Baby aim for the heart

 

When you´re losin´ faith

And you feel you can´t go on

Look inside and you´re gonna find the strength

to make you strong

 

Chorus

 

 

Immacculate Eyes

 

You´re impatient I get bored when there´s no

Conversation I lose desire cause you´re

Not what you appeared to be

Not what you appeared to be

 

Imperfectionhas left no trace upon you

Your reflection you depend upon it

 

You might be beautiful but what´s behind it

You have a pretty face but what are you hidin´ 

 

Chorus:

I´d rather stare at the stains on my window than look into those

Immaculate eyes

I´d rather gaze at the dust on my pillow than look into those

Immaculate eyes

 

Invitation signals you are sending

Hesitation like a never ending

Vertigo inside of me

Vertigo

 

No doubt I couldlook at you for hours

But it´s no good when good looks overpower

 

You might be beautiful but what´s behind it

You have a pretty face but what are you hidin´ 

 

Chorus:

I´d rather stare at the stains on my window than look into those

Immaculate eyes

I´d rather gaze at the dust on my pillow than look into those

Immaculate eyes

 

If there´s more to you than meets the eyes why

Can´t I find it

You laugh sweetly when I ask you if your beauty´s skin seep

 

I´d rather gaze at the dust on my pillow than look into those eyes

 

Your immaculate eyes

Immaculate eyes

Your immaculate eyes

 

 

What Does It Take

 

Darlin´ please

I´m week in the knees

What can I do to get you to believe

I play the fool I go to school

There isnt anything I wouldn´t do

 

You´re nothin´ like any girl I knew before

Give me the keys that´ll open up the door

 

Chorus:

What does it take

To make you really love me

What does it take

To say you really care

What does it take

To keep you thinkin´ of me

Tell me and you know I´ll be right there

 

Like a book

I can read that look

The line is out you got me on the hook

If you´d say baby we can play

There ain´t a chance you´ll aver get away

 

I can´t let go now that I have found you

I lose my mind when ever I´m around you

 

Chorus:

What does it take

To make you really love me

What does it take

To say you really care

What does it take

To keep you thinkin´ of me

Tell me and you know I´ll be right there

 

All my life never needed anyone

You know that I was always on the run

True love was somethin´ I just heard about

But you´ve made me find it

Now I can´t survive without it

 

 

Stranger

 

Pushed to the limit

The seems about to burst

Don´t think I can stand it

If things get any worse

Smile of an angel

The beauty hides the pain 

And now our love we crucify again and again

 

Chorus:

Because baby, your heart is filled with anger

And you turn into a stranger, I don´t know

Baby, in love we lie in danger

cause we hide away the stranger

 

We end up pretending

The past will fade away

Our hearts were defending

so strong and gallantly

We´re a hot burnin´ candle

That´s drownin´ in the rain

And though we try hard to deny

That we´re sayin´ goodbye

 

Chorus:

Because baby, your heart is filled with anger

And you turn into a stranger, I don´t know

Baby, in love we lie in danger

cause we hide away the stranger

 

Every moment cloudy day

Thoughts surround me turn to grey

I know it will never go away

still hounts my memories, my memories

 

I never meant to make you cry

And with this sentenced love we left to die, yeah

 

Chorus

 

 

The Bridge

 

Sometimes I wonder what´s the right thing

Maybe you could let me know

We were strucked by lightning a lifetime ago

Noone else´s vision

Ever let me see

How your good intention

Cast its spell on me

 

Chorus:

Now there´s a bridge I can´t get over

There´s a weight I can´t get under

It´s a dream I still remember

But it won´t come true

If there´s a lession I would learn it

I would Cross it now or burn it

There´s a bridge I can´t get over

Between me and you

 

Love can take some crazy side streets

It can twist and turn around

Lookin´ for a straight and narrow

Doubt it can be found

When has hesitation

Set somebody free

Baby in your wisdom

Shine your grace on me

 

Chorus:

Cause there´s a bridge I can´t get over

There´s a weight I can´t get under

It´s a dream I still remember

But it won´t come true

If there´s a lession I would learn it

I would Cross it now or burn it

There´s a bridge I can´t get over

Between me and you

 

And I have lived with indicision

And hoped without a reason

Now I´m tired of all this self-pity baby

Give me the room to leave

 

 

If You Need Me Tonight

 

Here is a heart without a home

Livin´ day to day

You´re on my mind you´re in my soul

With every breath I take

I never thought that we

Could drift so far apart

I never should have let you go

You´re love´s the only thing I know

 

I see you passing me by

And I reach out my hand

I miss the passion I miss your touch

And everything we had

I wanna close my eyes and open them to you

I didn´t wanna go away

I only need to hear you say

 

Chorus:

If you need me tonight

Give me one little chance

Open your heart to me

Give me one single chance

Look in my eyes and see

Just what you´ve done to me

 

You are the sun where there is rain

Warmin´ me inside

You are the arms that heal the pain

When I´m not alright

We had it all before we´ll get it back I swear

There´s nothin´ that I wouldn´t do

I only wanna be with you

 

Chorus:

So If you need me tonight

Give me one little chance

Open your heart to me

Give me one single chance

Look in my eyes and see

Just what you´ve done to me

 

Baby, can I get you back in my life

I want you back

 

Chorus

If you need me tonight

Give me one little chance

Open your heart to me

Give me one single chance

Look in my eyes and see

Just what you´ve done to me

 

I never should have let you go

So tell me baby

If you need me tonight
