Lyrics

1. In And Out Of Love

Young and wired
Set to explode in the heat
You won’t tire
Cause baby was born with the beat
Take you higher than you’ve ever known
Then drive you down to your knees
I pick you up when you’ve had enough
You been burned baby lessons learned

In and out of love
Hear what I’m sayin’
In and out of love
It’s the way that we’re playing
In and out of love
Too much is never enough
She’s gonna get ya.

Running wild
When me and my boys hit the streets
Right on time
She’s here to make my night complete
Then I’m long gone I got another show
One more town, one mile to go
One endless night of fantasy
Is all she left of her with me

In and out of love
Hear what I’m sayin’
In and out of love
It’s the way that we’re playing
In and out of love
When we’re together
In and out of love
It’s too much forever

In and out of love
Hear what I’m saying
In and out of love
It’s the way that we’re playing
In and out of love
Too much is never enough
She’s gonna get you

In and out of love…

2. The Price Of Love

One heart one other
They met last summer
One move she started
Now they love this way

The pain of pleasure
Lying together
You’re at their mercy
As the telephone’ ringing on

No one said there’d be nights like this
Risk your life for a stolen kiss

We live, we learn, we lie
For the price of love
We kiss then say goodbye
For the price of love
We live, we learn, we lie
For the price of love
We kiss then say goodbye
For the price of love

Each move goes so slow
Until the doors close
No secret codes now
No words as baby goes down

One last dance then goodbye
Practicing his love lies
He runs to his wife
And your left holding the knife

You live your life to take that chance
When your a master of the art of romance
And you know you won’t cross that line
Until that last slow dance

We live, we learn, we lie
For the price of love
We kiss, then say goodbye
For the price of love
We live, we learn, we lie
For the price of love
Alone our lonely hearts would die.

It’s all in the game
And the way that it’s played
There’s no time to wonder why
To catch you when you fall
Answer when you call
No one can hear you cry

We live, we learn, we lie
For the price of love
We kiss, then say goodbye
For the price of love
We live, we learn, we lie
For the price of love
We kiss, then say goodbye
For the price of love

3. Only Lonely

Another long and sleepless night
You need someone to hold you tight
Sometime love don’t know wrong from right
Another long and senseless

Fight was all you knew they’re all the same
There’s no one left to take the blame
What’s behind this masquerade
How do we win these losin’

Games we play, words we say
Cutting wounds we know they run so deep
Leave it all behind you
Or someday love will find you

Only lonely — I can’t stop hurting you
Only lonely — but I can’t stop loving you
Only lonely — how much pain does it take

It’s getting sometimes I don’t know
When to stot when to go
Sometimes we’re so afraid to
Let it show

A stolen kiss so out of place
It wipes the smile right off your face
And when those feelings start
We let them go, let them go

Games we play, words we say
Cutting wounds that run so deep
Leave it all behind you
Or someday love will find you

Only lonely — I can’t stop hurting you
Only lonely — but I can’t stop loving you
Only lonely — so tell me babe, how much pain
can you take before your heart breaks?

I got this timebomb ticking in my head
This time I think she’s gonna blow
How can I say get away
When I just can’t let go

Games we play, words we say
Cutting wounds that run so…
Leave it all behind you
Or someday love will find you

Only lonely — I can’t stop hurting you
Only lonely — but I can’t stop loving you
Only lonely — I can’t stop hurting you
Only lonely — I can’t stop loving you
I can’t stop…

4. King Of The Mountain

Listen people can’t you hear the voices that are crying out.
There’s a hunger burning in the heart of their souls.
Maybe now that I got you let me tell you what I’m talking ’bout
Stand up and shout tonight we’ll lose control

I been down and mistreated
Now we’re standing undefeated.
I’m the King of the Mountain
I’m the King of the Hill
I’m the King of the Mountain
I’m the King of the Hill

You spend your life working 9 to 5 it’s like doing time
Boss man says “Hey boy, you’ll never be no good”
With the night there’s a magic in the air that makes us come alive
Tonight’s the night they can’t put you down, no one could.

I been down and mistreated
Now we’re standing undefeated
I’m the King of the Mountain
I’m the King of the Hill
I’m the King of the Mountain
I’m the King of the Hill

Listen people can’t you hear the voices that are crying out.
There’s a hunger burning in the heart of their souls.
Maybe now that I got you let me tell you what I’m talking ’bout
Stand up and shout tonight we’ll lose control

I been down and mistreated
We won’t be cheated
Now we’re standing undefeated…
I’m the King of the Mountain
I’m the King of the Hill
I’m the King of the Mountain
I’m the King of the Hill

5. Silent Night

After the smoke clears
When it’s down to you and I
When the sun appears
And there’s nothing left but goodbyes
We’ll just turn and walk away
How could we let it end like this
Just turn and walk away
Should we seal it with a kiss

It’s too late
Now you’re out and on the run
It’s too late
Held up in love without a gun

Silent night
We hold up our candle light
Silent night
The night our love died
No words to say
And we’re both too tired to fight
Just hold me close and don’t let go…

It was all so simple when
You were to be queen and I’d be your king.
I guess those dreams got lost
Cause baby you’re still you and I’m still me.
Now letting go
It’s always the hardest part to fight
When we both know
We’re just two more victims of the night

It’s too late
Too late to wonder why
Much too late
To save a love that’s died.

Silent night
We hold up our candle light
Silent night
The night our love died
No words to say
Now we’re both too tired to fight
Just hold me close and don’t let go
Just hold me close and don’t let me go

After the smoke cleared
It was down to you and I
When the sun appeared
There was nothing left but goodbyes…

Silent night

6. Tokyo Road

In a time, in a place
In a world, they forgot
Lives the heart of me
A part that just won’t die
Just a boy, not a man
Sent to war, in a land
They said we’d fight for their freedom
But I felt like a hired hand

Sometimes I have to find my way
Sometimes I have to get away
Take me back to Tokyo Road
Take me back to Tokyo Road

Working hard, for a pass
Got the night, make it last
It was a time to remember
All my life I would never forget
In a bar, breathing smoke
Snorting whiskey, drinking coke
It was a time when no one would die
And there wasn’t a care

Sometimes I wish it was that way
Cause sometimes I have to get away
Take me back to Tokyo Road
Take me back to Tokyo Road
Take me back to Tokyo Road
Take me back to Tokyo Road

This guy turns me around and he’s pointing up the stairs
I found myself in her doorway but there wasn’t anybody there
She walked in the room with nothing on but a red light
And with a smile she got so close to me.
She whispered something ’bout midnight
You know I didn’t understand a word she said
But it felt so good
She knew that I didn’t have any money
But baby I knew she would…

Take me back to Tokyo Road
Take me back to Tokyo Road

7. The Hardest Part Is The Night

In the heat of the street of the city
A young boy hides the pain
And he walks so tall, trying to hang on
But he knows he’s going down again
I know he’s going down…

Darkness fades he’s the prince of his city
In a place where they all know your name
You can see in their eyes life so paralyzed.
Your just a pawn in a losin’ game
You lose at life it ain’t no game

Hear their cries
The hardest part is the night
(In the night, hear their cries, in the night)
Stay alive
The hardest part is the night, it’s the night, it’s the night…

All alone in a place where the lonely
They all have to walk through the rain
And they dance on the edge where you only
Only pray that it has to end
That the night ain’t no friend

Hear their cries
The hardest part is the night
(In the night, hear their cries, in the night)
Stay alive
The hardest part is the night, it’s the night, it’s the night…

Hear their cries
The hardest part is the night
(In the night, hear their cries, in the night)
Stay alive
The hardest part is the night, it’s the night, it’s the night…

These four walls they could tell you some stories
About lying and dying and fame
There’s a price that you pay for the glory
About losing and choosing and pain.

Hear their cries
The hardest part is the night
In the night, hear their cries, in the night
Stay alive
In the night, stay alive, in the night

8. Always Run To You

The clock strikes ten
Out on the streets again
I been looking for something to please me since I don’t know when
Out on the dark side of town
Another rumbles gone down
And life on the high side isn’t what this boys about

She’s got something I want man, it’s something I need
It takes more than the night to satisfy me…
I stand accused
That I can always run to you
Any road that you choose
I can always run to you
I stand accused
I can always run to you
I run to you
Baby, I can always run

To a heart of chrome
And a soul of steel
We’ve done more white lines than you’ll know any one we could steal
And when I give her the gun
You know she feels so right
And we don’t let go when we’re alone when I’m holding her so tight.

She’s got something I want man, it’s something I need
It takes more than the night to satisfy me.
I stand accused
I can always run to you
Any road that you choose
I can always run to you
I stand accused
I can always run to you
I run to you
Baby, I can always run

And when the morning comes and I go to sleep
When I close my eyes she’s waiting for me
I know that tonight she’ll satisfy me.
I stand accused
I can always run to you
Any road that you choose
I can always run to you
I stand accused
I can always run to you
I run to you
Baby, I can always run

9. (I Don’t Wanna Fall) To The Fire

We would take no prisoners
‘Cause there was nobody giving in
They came walking through my jungle
And met an angel about to sin
I heard a voice from inside of me
When the youth of America cried:

Can you help me, hear me call
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire

When you’re a part of society
You know, the heart of your innocence dies
When we met with Authority
I looked him right between the eyes
‘Cause all we had was our innocence
All we had was our hearts to try to win the fight you tell me…

Can you save me, from it all
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
Don’t let me fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire

Can you help me, hear me call
Can you save me, from it all…
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
I don’t wanna fall (I don’t wanna fall)
To the fire

10. Secret Dreams

Riding high, then shot down
I load my guns to fire another round
I look deep into your eyes
And can’t run there’s nowhere left to hide.

Don’t stop, no it’s much too late
When the night comes I can’t wait
Oh I live, love to loose control
It makes me crazy I want to let you know.

Oh, no, I don’t want to fall
Oh, oh, can’t you hear me calling

All night long in my secret dreams
You tell me I’m the one
When I’m next to you — next to you.
All I want in my secret dreams
Is you here with me.
I got to get to you, get to you, get to you.

There’s a thrill, in the chase
We won’t lose when we meet face to lace.
Love, games a means without and end.
I go down but I’ll be back again

Thru’ the night with no retreat
When your with me in my sleep.

Oh, no, I don’t want to fall
Oh, oh, can’t you hear me calling

All night long in my secret dreams
You tell me I’m the one
When I’m next to you — next to you.
All I want in my secret dreams
Is you here with me.
I got ot get to you, get to you, get to you…

All night long in my secret dreams
You tell me I’m the one
When I’m next to you — next to you.
All I want in my secret dreams
Is you here with me.
I got ot get to you, get to you, get to you.

I can see you
I feel you every night
I need you
But I’m only dreaming

All night long in my secret dreams
You tell me I’m the one
When I’m next to you — next to you.
All I want in my secret dreams
Is you here with me.
