She's Only Happy When She's Dancin' 
gora

Monday mornin' - it's time to get up 
Two cups of coffee and she runs for the bus
Looks in the window and fixes her hair 
Nobody notices and nobody cares 

She admits it ain't no kinda life 
Workin' 9 to 5 you know... 

She's only happy when she's dancin' 
There ain't no place she'd rather be 
When she's dancin' 
Just her heart and her soul and her fantasies 

When Friday evenin' finally rolls around 
She grabs a taxi and she heads uptown 
Goes to a place they call "The Ball And Chain" 
Nothin' matters until Monday so she goes insane 

Well it's a bitch tryin' to make ends meet 
But that's the way the story goes 
She's only happy when she's dancin' 
There ain't nothin' makes her feel so free 
When she's dancin' 
The girl's outrageous and it's plain to see 


She ain't got much but she got independence 
Ya - she's doin' alright 
His eyes are on her as the evenin's endin'
But she ain't goin' for no mystery 
Because nobody rides for free 

She's only happy when she's dancin' 
Dancin' - there ain't no place she'd rather be 
When she's dancin' 
Just her heart and her soul and her fantasies - dancin' 


It's Only Love 
gora

When the feelin' is ended 
There ain't no use pretendin' 
Don't ya worry - it's only love 

When your world has been shattered 
Ain't nothin' else matters 
It ain't over - it's only love 
And that's all - ya 
When your heart has been broken 
Hard words have been spoken 
It ain't easy - but it's only love 

And if your life ain't worth livin' 
And you're ready to give in 
Just remember - that it's only love 

You can live without the aggravation 
Ya gotta wanna win - ya gotta wanna win 

You keep lookin' back in desperation 
Over and over and over again 

When your world is shattered 
Ain't nothin' else matters 
It ain't over - it's only love 

If your life ain't worth livin' 
And you're ready to give in 
Just remember - that it's only love 
Ya - that's all 

Ya it ain't easy baby 
But it's only love - and that's all 


Cuts Like A Knife 
gora

Drivin' home this evening 
I coulda sworn we had it all worked out 
You had this boy believin' 
Way beyond the shadow of a doubt 

Then I heard it on the street 
I heard you mighta found somebody new 
Well who is he baby - who is he 
And tell me what he means to you 

I took it all for granted 
But how was I to know 
That you'd be letting go 

Now it cuts like a knife 
But it feels so right 
It cuts like a knife 
But it feels so right 

There's times I've 'bin mistaken 
There's times I thought I'd 'bin misunderstood 
So wait a minute darlin' 
Can't you see we did the best we could 

This wouldn't be the first time 
Things have gone astray 
Now you've thrown it all away 

Now it cuts like a knife 
But It feels so right 
It cuts like a knife 
But it feels so right 


Kids Wanna Rock 
gora

Turned on the radio 
Sounded like a disco 
Musta turned the dial for a couple of miles
But I couldn't find no rock 'n roll 

This computerized crap ain't gettin' me off 
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock 
London to L.A. 
Talkin' 'bout the New Wave
For a couple of bucks you get a weird haircut
And waste your life away 

Around the world or around the block 
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock 
Get me my D.J. 
I got somethin' he's gotta play 
Wanna hear it I can't wait 
So turn it up, turn it up... 

Kick down the barricades 
Listen what the kids say 
From time to time people change their minds
But the music is here to stay 

I've seen it all from the bottom to the top 
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock 

Around the world or around the block 
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock 

Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock


Hearts On Fire 
gora

Some other time 
Some other place 
We might not 've 'bin here 
Standin' face to face 

I just wanna tell ya 
Made up my mind 
You know I can't help the way I feel inside

Oh this heart's on fire 
Right from the start it's bin burnin' for you 
Oh this heart's on fire 
One thing honey - this heart's true

The streets are empty 
The lights are down 
Ain’t nothin' movin' 
This side of town 

So come on over 
I ain't hard to please 
Oh baby - what you get ain't always what you need 

Oh this heart's on fire 
It's gettin' hotter now can't you see 
Oh this heart's on fire 
From now on babe it's gonna be you and me 

Risin' to my feet I can feel the heat 
It's tryin' to pull me under 
Runnin' through the night we can make it right
It's comin' on like thunder 

Some got it good some got it bad 
But you're the best I ever had 
I never worry you're so fine 
From now on babe I'm gonna be by your side


Take Me Back 
gora

I shoulda seen it coming 
I shoulda seen the signs 
Didn't really think that she needs me
Must've 'bin blind 

She didn't give me a warning 
Said I shouldn't treat you wrong 
But when I woke up this mornin' 
She was gone gone gone 

She said... 
Take me back won't ya
Take me back won't ya 
I'll change my ways 
Take me back won't ya 
Take me back won't ya 
I'm not the same 

She didn't tell me about it 
Am I supposed to read your mind 
You make me get up and shout it 
It's a crime crime crime 

I shoulda seen it coming 
I shoulda seen the signs 
Didn't really think that she needs me 
Must've 'bin blind 

She said...
Take me back won't ya 
Take me back won't ya 
I'll change my ways 
Take me back won't ya 
Take me back won't ya 
I'm not the same 

Won't ya take me back 
Won't ya take me back 


The Best Was Yet To Come 
gora

Just a small town girl in the city lights 
The best was yet to come 
Then lonely days turned to endless nights
The best was yet to come 

How were you to know 
That you would be the lucky one 
Ain't it funny how time flies 
When the best is yet to come 

You can cry yourself to sleep at night 
You can't change the things you've done 
You had it there then it slipped away 
Yeah you left the song unsung 

Even through your tears 
I never saw you come undone 
What's so good about goodbye 
When the best was yet to come 

I find myself thinkin' about yesterday
When you were and livin' in a dream 
In the moment that it takes 
You find you made your first mistake 
Like the setting sun... 
You turn around it's gone 

Just a small town girl who had it made 
Or so the story goes 
She had it there then it slipped 
Oh - how was she to know 

Even through her tears 
I never saw her come undone
Ain't it funny how time flies 
When the best is yet to come 
What's so good about goodbye 
When the best was yet to come


 
gora

Oh - thinkin' about all our younger years 
There was only you and me 
We were young and wild and free

Now nothin' can take you away from me 
We've been down that road before 
But that's over now 
You keep me comin' back for more 
Baby you're all that I want 
When you're lyin' here in my arms 
I'm findin' it hard to believe 
We're in heaven 

And love is all that I need 
And I found it there in your heart 
It isn't too hard to see 
We're in heaven 

Oh - once in your life you find someone 
Who will turn your world around 
Bring you up when you're feelin' down 

Ya - nothin' could change what you mean to me 
Oh there's lots that I could say 
But just hold me now 
Cause our love will light the way 


I've bin waitin' for so long 
For somethin' to arrive 
For love to come along 

Now our dreams are comin' true 
Through the good times and the bad 
Ya - I'll be standin' there by you


Heat Of The Night 
gora

I was caught in the crossfire of a silent scream 
Where one man's nightmare is another man's dream 
Pull the covers up high and pray for the mornin' light 
Cause you're livin' alone in the heat of the night 

Met a man with a message from the other side 
Couldn't take the pressure - had to leave it behind 
He said it's up to you 
You can run or you can fight - ya that's right 
Better leave it alone in the heat of the night 

In the heat of the night they'll be comin' around 
They'll be lookin' for answers they'll be chasin' you down 
In the heat of the night 
Where you gonna hide when it all comes down 
Don't look back don't ever turn around 

Had to pay the piper to call the tune 
Said he'd be back someday - said he'd be back real soon 
Pull the shades down low - you'll know when the time is right 
When you're lyin' alone in the heat of the night


Run To You 
gora

She says her love for me could never die 
But that'd change if she ever found out about you and I

Oh - but her love is cold 
It wouldn't hurt her if she didn't know, 'cause...

When it gets too much 
I need to feel your touch 

I'm gonna run to you 
I'm gonna run to you 
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night 
I'm gonna run to you 
She's got a heart of gold she'd never let me down 
But you're the one that always turns me on 
You keep me comin' 'round 

I know her love is true 
But it's so damn easy makin' love to you 

I got my mind made up 
I need to feel your touch 

I'm gonna run to you 
Ya - I'm gonna run to you 
Cause when the feelin's right I'm gonna stay all night 

I'm gonna run to you 
Ya - I'm gonna run to you 
Oh when the feelin's right I'm gonna run all night 
I'm gonna run to you


One Night Love Affair 
gora

You're the silent type 
And you caught my eye 
But I never thought that I'd be touchin' you 
How was I to know 
I'd let my feelin's go 
And that I'd be yours before the night was through 

One night love affair 
Tryin' to make like we don't care 
We were both reachin' out for somethin' 

One night love affair 
Pretendin' it ain't there 
Oh - and now we're left with nothin' 

When the mornin' breaks 
We go our separate ways 
If the night was made for love it ain't for keeps 

But I lose control 
As I watch you go 
All my senses say I'm in this much too deep 
Now you're outa reach 

One night love affair 
Tryin' to make like we don't care 
We were both reachin' out for somethin'

One night love affair 
Pretendin' we don't care 
Oh - and now we're left with nothin' 


One night love affair 
Trying' to make like we don't care 
We were both reachin' out for somethin'

One night love affair 
Sometimes life ain't fair 
Oh - and not we're left with nothin'


Long Gone 
gora

The telephone's bin ringin' - ringin' off the wall 
It's your Las Vegas lawyer - another long distance call
He says you get the house and the car 
And I get the clothes I got on 
Now she's gone
Long, long, long, long gone 
Now I'm a happy boy 

She's long, long, long, long gone 

Operator get me Manhatten - get my baby on the line 
Sooner or later she's gotta realize 
That all my feelin's were for real 
But maybe she was leadin' me on 


She took the frigidaire 
She got my favorite chair 
You could say she got the best of me

It's like a legal crime 
But in a matter of time 
She'll be back for the rest of me


Summer Of '69 
gora

I got my first real six-string 
Bought it at the five-and-dime 
Played it till my fingers bled 
It was the summer of '69 

Me and some guys from school 
Had a band and we tried real hard 
Jimmy quit and Jody got married 
I shoulda known we'd never get far 
Oh when I look back now 
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice 
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life 

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do 
Spent my evenin's down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you 

Standin' on your mama's porch 
You told me that you'd wait forever 
Oh and when you held my hand 
I knew that it was now or never 
Those were the best days of my life 

Back in the summer of '69 

Man we were killin' time 
We were young and restless 
We needed to unwind 
I guess nothin' can last forever - forever, no

And now the times are changin' 
Look at everything that's come and gone 
Sometimes when I play that old six-string 
I think about ya wonder what went wrong 

Standin' on your mama's porch 
You told me it would last forever 
Oh the way you held my hand 
I knew that it was now or never 
Those were the best days of my life 

Back in the summer of '69


Somebody 
gora

I've been lookin' for someone 
Between the fire and the flame
We're all lookin' for somethin' 
To ease the pain 
Now who can you turn to 
When it's all black and white 
And the winners are losers 
You see it every night 

I need somebody 
Somebody like you 
Everybody needs somebody 

I need somebody 
Hey what about you 
Everybody needs somebody 
When you're out on the front line 
And you're watchin' them fall 
It doesn't take long to realize 
It ain't worth fightin' for 

I thought I saw the Madonna 
When you walked in the room 
Well your eyes were like diamonds 
And they cut right through - oh they cut right through 

I need somebody 
Somebody like you 
Everybody needs somebody 
I need somebody 
Hey what about you 
We all need somebody 

Another night another lesson learned 
It's the distance keeps us sane 
But when the silence leads to sorrow
We do it all again - all again 


Walking After Midnight 
gora

I got out walkin' after midnight 
Out in the moonlight just like we used to do 
I'm always walkin' after midnight 
Searchin' for you 

I walk for miles along the highway 
Well, that's just my way of sayin' I love you
I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for you 

I stop to see a weepin' willow cryin' on her pillow 
Maybe she's cryin' for me 
And as the sky turns gloomy, night winds whisper to me 
I'm lonesome as I can be 
I go out walkin' after midnight 
Out in the moonlight 
Just hopin' you may be out there a walkin' after midnight searchin' for me 

I walk for miles along the highway 
Well, that's just my way of sayin' I love you
I'm always walkin' after midnight searchin' for you 


I Fought The Law 
gora

Breakin' rocks in the hot sun 
I fought the law and the law won 
I fought the law and the law won 
I needed the money 'cause I had none 
I fought the law and the law won 
I fought the law and the law won 

I miss my baby and I feel so bad 
I guess my race is run
She's the best girl I've ever had 
I fought the law and the law won 
I fought the law and the law won 

Robin' people with a six gun 
I fought the law and the law won 
I fought the law and the law won 

I miss my baby and I feel so bad 
I guess my race is run 
She's the best girl I've ever had 
I fought the law and the law won 
I fought the law and the law won 


Into The Fire 
gora

Life - thin as a thread 
Sometimes you're lucky 
Sometimes you're better off dead 

Your first breath is taken and in to the world you are cast 
You long for tomorrow while living each day as your last 

Well I know what your heart desires 
But you can't take it with you 
Into the fire 

Now you've done all you can 
Your life's at the crossroads 
You watch as it slips through your hands 

So stand on the mountain and shout in vain at the sky 
But nobody hears you - the words only echo inside 
Oh shelter the flame - it may expire 
Risin' up from the ashes 
Into the fire 

Just hold on to your life down to the wire 
Oh out from the dragon's jaws 
Into the fire 

There's a moment in every man's life 
When he must decide what is wrong and what's right 

You could wait for your dreams to come true 
But time has no mercy 
Time won't stand still for you 

Well I know what your heart desires 
Crawlin' out from the wreckage 
Into the fire 

Here I go...into the fire 
I know...what your heart desires
