NIGHTTIME DAYDREAM

Well turn up the rock and roll,
Here comes a nighttime daydream.
And she's about to shake your world,
Well she's a nighttime daydream.

A nighttime daydream, all dressed up like a little girl.
Well she's a nighttime daydream,
And baby she's about to shake the world.

She's got her sights set high.
She's got that look now in her eyes,
Like she's gonna set the world on fire tonight.

Now she's mine, we've been linked through love and time;
Yeah we've intertwined our lives,
And I'll do anything I can to keep her by my side.

She's a nighttime daydream, all dressed up like a little girl.
Well she's a nighttime daydream,
And baby she's about to shake the world.

She's a sweet little rock and roll,
Of a nighttime daydream.
And she's about to shake the world,
Yeah she's a nighttime daydream.

JUST WARMING UP

Baby you and I, seen some time go by;
Oh yeah, we've shared a lot together.
All the good and bad, all the happy sad;
All the loving that we found along the way;
As we piled up our yesterdays.
Holding you at night, seems so real and right;
So don't start thinking that it's all been done;
The best is yet to come.

Hey Babe, we're just warming up,
We haven't even begun to know love.
We're just warming up,
We haven't even begun to know love.

As the days go by, calendar pages fly;
Oh you know the time keeps passing.
When it gets you down, shakes your world around;
Oh it makes you feel a little frayed around the edge;
Got you reaching back to yesterday.
Yeah, you've seen it all, heard it all before;
But this is something can't be left unsaid;
The future's straight ahead.

Hey Babe, we're just warming up,
We haven't even begun to know love.

COSMIC LOVIN'

High above all you see
She's watching everything;
Cast her spell in my direction
And here I go again.

She's on my mind, about twenty hours everyday;
She's in my eyes, my heart, my soul, and everything.

She's got me hooked, she caught me off my guard;
She hit me with that cosmic lovin'.
She got me good, right between the heart.
She vamped me with that cosmic kind of love.

I was in control
Nothing' shakes my world;
But just one glance in her direction
And here I go again.

She's on my mind, about twenty hours everyday;
She's in my eyes, my heart, my soul, and everything.

She got me hooked, she caught me off my guard;
She hit me with that cosmic lovin'.
She got me good, right between the heart.
She vamped me with that cosmic kind of love.
She laid the trap, and I went walkin' in;
She hit me with that cosmic lovin'.
She was the bait, on a silver hook;
She vamped me with that cosmic kind of love.

LOOKING FOR LOVE

If you're reaching for the top,
There'll be a price to pay.
And if the price you pay is love,
Then you've paid everything.

We're looking for love babe,
With everything we do;
Well it's the only thing that matters,
And I believe it's true.

I'm sick and tired of waiting for you
to make your mind up.
Every which way you look it's all the same.
You wouldn't know a stroke of good luck;
If it came walking up to you,
You'd turn your back on it again.

We're looking for love babe,
With everything we do;
Well it's the only thing that matters,
And I believe it's true.

END OF THE ROAD

If you don't find it along the way,
You won't find it at the end of the road.
Now there's a choice you'll have to make,
Between here and the end of the road.

Oh, love ain't waiting at the end of the road.
The time is now it ain't at the end of the road.

Oh yeah the revolution is here,
Oh baby now it's all in your mind;
You've got to seize control of the rest of your life.

If you don't find love in your heart,
Love won't find you at the end of the road.
Well now's the perfect time to start,
Don't go waiting 'till the end of the road.

Oh, the time is now it ain't at the end of the road.
Love ain't waiting at the end of the road.

WHO'S LAW ARE WE FOLLOWING

Who's law are we following,
Who's voice gonna speak for justice;
Who's song gonna really sing,
Oh who'll be the first among us?

Well everybody talks but who's there by
your side when the going gets rough?
Well everybody says,
'Well this is all I can take, yeah I've had enough.'
But you've gotta be tough.

Who's laws are we following,
Who's voice gonna shout the danger;
Who's truth gonna really ring,
Who'll wait for the perfect stranger?

Well maybe deep inside there's a faith you
can find if you look hard enough.
Well maybe you can find
the answers in rhythm and maybe not;
But you know you gotta start.

BODY COUNT


Oh my God the exocet hit,
What's the body count?
You mean they let the O-rings freeze,
What's the body count?
Hey, how much does a holocaust cost,
Yeah what's the body count.

Oh, what's the price that you put on life,
What's the price that you put on life?

Hey when you land the marines on the beach,
What's the body count?
You what to regulate guns?
Why what's the body count?
It's just a harmless release of a radioactive cloud,
What's the body count?

Now when a whole generation's afraid of creation,
Then what's the body count?
Hey, how'd that deal for the hostages work out?
What was the body count?
And your nuclear threat continues to mount,
Who's gonna tally that body count?

Oh, what's the price that you put on life,
What's the price that you put on life?

DEAR JOHN (mp3)

Teardrops fall as we think of you,
As we recall the joy of having you here.
You were sky, wind and light in our very midst,
And we followed without ever questioning where.

Your words brought color to a darkened world,
You made the minds of reason stop and stare;
You made a generation come awake,
And led us places no one else would dare.

Dear John, you know we'd give the world to
just hear another song,
Dear John, you know we'd give it all to
just hear you one more time.

Dear John, oh how we miss you now,
It's been so long, yet your voice is still
ringing so clear;
And as we hold on to all the things that we
learned from you;
We try to go on, relaxed and just floating downstream.

HOOKED ON ROCK AND ROLL

I got this feeling in my heart,
I just can't seem to let go.
It's got me staying up all night,
Think I'm hooked on rock and roll.

Well I tried but I just can't stop,
I can't stop.
I hear that drums and bass and electrical guitars,
And I just can't stop, I can't stop.
I hear that singer singing about love and blues
and planets and the stars,
And I just can't stop, I can't stop.
That beat comes taking me higher and higher,
And I just can't stop, I can't stop.

It feels like a Saturday night,
I just can't seem to let it go,
It's got me staying up all night,
Think I'm hooked on rock and roll.

AND IT WAS YOU

We was just talking baby,
And I'm not even sure what we were saying,
But I knew something was happening baby,
And it was you.

And from that very moment baby,
Everything before it turned to yesterday,
And I knew it was something that could never change
Yeah I really knew.
Everything I dreamed started coming true.
And it was you,
You showed me love that I never knew.

True love found it's way.
True love was born again.
Well true love begins with desire babe,
It's a feeling that they just don't sell;
It's sharing your heart with someone else.

Well time kept going on and it just kind of
took us along.
And that feeling kept coming on,
And it was you.

Well you showed me a passion babe,
That just kept my heart flashing,
With the thrill of a thousand ways,
That you really knew.
Everything I'd ever learned told me it was true,
And it was you.
You showed me love that I never knew.

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

Golden age, golden times,
As we stared into each others eyes;
Golden hour, golden day,
As you came into my life to stay.

I can't believe it girl,
The high I get from loving you.
Now that we found it babe,
There's just one thing you gotta do.

You gotta give it to me straight from the heart,
That's all I'm asking you;
Just give it to me straight from the heart,
Let's show 'em what love can do.

No games, no lies,
No playing with each others minds;
Real hope, real trust,
We'll put our faith into each others love.
