Turn on the key and away we go Step on the gas let’s kick some asss Squealin’ tires and a five speed trans Block to block as fast as you can You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no I hate waiting at the light Mean eyes from left to right I can shift faster than you When the light turns green you’ll see the proof You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no Here I go by the city limit sign Leave those cruisers way behind All night long these wheels they turn Gotta park this thing before I get burned You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no Turn on the key and away we go Step on the gas let’s kick some asss Squealin’ tires and a five speed trans Block to block as fast as you can You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me , no You’ll never catch me, you’ll never catch me, no

Good and Bad 06:25
Bricks in the city, concrete walls Graffiti on them, just pictures and words Black and white, oh so true Paint and brushes, the artistic tools Who are the Van Goghs that color the earth History on the walls, artistic point of view They talk of love - they talk of pain Talk of their cities, good and bad Good and bad Good and bad Old factories since shut down Their walls are painted like a mosaic underground Broken windows let real light in When the sun shines you know they’ll paint again Who are the Van Goghs that color the earth History on the walls, artistic point of view They talk of love - they talk of pain Talk of their cities, good and bad Good and bad Good and bad Railroad bridges broken and dead Statues of stones is all that’s left They’re layered with paint by an artist of another time Tells the story as life goes by Who are the Van Goghs that color the earth History on the walls, artistic point of view They talk of love - they talk of pain Talk of their cities, good and bad Good and bad Good and bad Good and bad Good and bad

Dream 04:41
I’m at the speed of light I race to the stars And I can’t, I can’t slow down I ride on a shooting star In my dreams I travel far Close you eyes, dream of me I close my eyes and dream of you Black holes and purple planets Let’s meet in a special place In my dreams I travel far The sunshine is in my window I arise to another day I fight through all it’s labors But tonight I’ll dream of you In my dreams I travel far I dream, oh yes I love to dream I lay down my head and rest my mind Close my eyes, let time stand still I’m unconscious to the distant worlds In my dreams I travel far In my dreams I travel far In my dreams I travel far

We all need something to hold We all need some kind of love I've been hoping for a lover Maybe it'll happen today I need a sweetheart, won't you send her first class I'm in a hurry, and I paid for express I put a note into a bottle Then I sent it on down the river Where it goes, nobody knows I might get lucky, my picture's inside I need a sweetheart, won't you send her first class I'm in a hurry, and I paid for express My phone is ringing, this could be it Woman on the line, she likes my picture I said she could, she said she would She's got a ticket on the next airline I need a sweetheart, send her first class I'm in a hurry, I paid for express We all need something to hold We all need some kind of love I've been hoping for a lover Maybe it'll happen today I need a sweetheart, won't you send her first class I'm in a hurry and I paid for express I'm in a hurry and I paid for express

It’ll knock you down Take away your pain If you drink too much You’ll never dance again Bootleg whiskey Bootleg whiskey recipe Moonshine – pure grain alcohol Moonshine’s made in the mountains Ma and Pa run the still Kids are up in the trees Watchin’ for the feds Bootleg whiskey Bootleg whiskey recipe Moonshine – pure grain alcohol All it takes is a little corn Bootleggin’ is our way of life Junior makes the deliveries And he only drives at night Bootleg whiskey Bootleg whiskey recipe Moonshine – pure grain alcohol Federal revenuers Filled our stills with holes Took away our whiskey But we were long gone Bootleg whiskey Bootleg whiskey recipe Moonshine – pure grain alcohol It’ll knock you down Take away your pain If you drink too much You’ll never dance again

Free my Soul 04:28
I know it’s been a long, long time Since our eyes met on the same side I know we’re older, things ain’t changed I think of you day to day Only you free my soul Only you free my soul I’ve been looking for you in my dreams I break a sweat thinking you’re there Ah, sweet lover, where do you hide? I know I’ll find you, together we’ll ride Only you free my soul Only you free my soul If time allows for us to meet I’d back up time and tell you once again I’ve carried your memory everywhere I’ve been All these years still love you Only you free my soul Only you free my soul Only you free my soul

You made me promises you could not keep You lied to me, said things you didn’t mean Sometimes I wish we’d never met One day baby, I’m gonna pay you back If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more I can’t love you if you close that door I’m like a puppy on the street On the hunt, lookin’ for love Every corner something new to see It’s been a long time since I felt free If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more I can’t love you if you close that door I’m like a puppet on a string Done my time too long without love Now baby this ain’t no line I need some lovin’ - may I have you tonight? If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more I can’t love you if you close that door You made me promises you could not keep You lied to me, said things you didn’t mean Sometimes I wish we’d never met One day baby, I’m gonna pay you back If you can’t love me I can’t wait no more I can’t love you if you close that door

Where’s the sunshine? Shine on me today I need a warm friend Stay a while, don’t go away We race to the stars In search of the speed of light What’s it all come down to We still get cold at night Still cold at night Still cold at night Dark clouds are rolling Here comes that golden beam The rain is over I was dirty, now I’m clean Still cold at night Still cold at night Find the secret To change hate to love All that breathe Would save the children And save their lives Cold at night Cold at night Cold at night Cold at night Cold at night Cold at night Cold at night Cold at night

The love of life can bring you up Cloudy skies can bring you down Keep your head in the game Good things will come around Smiles and tears, a human emotion Smiles and tears can stop the rain Love me, love me, not illusion True love will find a way You run too fast and you can fall You run too slow - you fall behind Flow free as the river You’ll always be on time Where ever you want to go Remember where you have been Always search for something new Your dreams just might come true Smiles and tears, a human emotion Smiles and tears can stop the rain Love me, love me, not illusion True love will find a way The love of life can bring you up Cloudy skies can bring you down Keep your head in the game Good things will come around Smiles and tears, a human emotion Smiles and tears can stop the rain Love me, love me, not illusion True love will find a way

Taxi Man 03:49
Don’t worry, take a little time And I know your car broke down You won’t have to walk across the town ‘Cause I’ll be there, I’ll never let you down You woke up late, the kids are out of hand No milk in the fridge, the damn dog ran off again Your car won’t start and you’re walking in the rain Dial my number, I’ll help you out Let it go baby, let me change your mind There’s no others I wish to love Let it go baby, I’m always close by I wanna be your taxi man, your taxi man I know we didn’t see eye to eye And I wish we could love again It’s no trade, swapping you for gin I wanna be your taxi man You woke up late, the kids are out of hand No milk in the fridge, the damn dog ran off again Your car won’t start and you’re walking in the rain Dial my number, I’ll help you out Let it go baby, let me change your mind There’s no others I wish to love Let it go baby, I’m always close by I wanna be your taxi man your taxi man your taxi man

Hot summer nights, late night rendezvous You look so fine, I wanna make love to you Lights are flashing, the band’s over here Shake that, shake that, shake that thing When I’m with you I got no sense of time Nothing’s important, just to be with you Tonight’s the night - tell you how I feel I love, I love, I love you Love don’t come easy It’s gonna take some time Love don’t come easy There’s no easy way to love There’s a tattoo only I can see I know your secrets, I got the key To set your mind truly free You can count on, count on, count on me Hot summer night, late night rendezvous You look so fine, I wanna make love to you Lights are flashing, the band’s over here Shake that, shake that, shake that thing Love don’t come easy It’s gonna take some time Love don’t come easy There’s no easy way to love Love don’t come easy It’s gonna take some time Love don’t come easy There’s no easy way to love Love don’t come easy
