  Writing On The Wall (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
I've seen the writing on the wall
What's the answer to it all
My eyes are open
No need to stall
I've seen the writing on the wall

How I loved you
When I first saw you
The transformation was there to see
I gave my heart, my body and soul
When I first saw you
Oh, how I loved you

Games, games, games - games people playin'
There's always a loser
This time it's me
Oh how I love my inspiration
Such a sad story
The game we played

How could sweet love
Turn to sour love
How could I've lied
One lie too many
Why should we be separated
You know that I still want you
You know that I still want you

Seen the writing on the wall
What's the answer to it all
My eyes are open No need to stall
Seen the writing on the wall



What Am I Gonna Do (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Another day has passed away
Another day without you
Here comes another lonely night
One more broken promise gone
One more teardrop from your eye
I suppose that I'll survive

What am I gonna do
What am I gonna do

To find the words it's hard to say
You don't wanna hold him
Or leave him all alone
You've been together for so long
Now the feeling's gone
You can't see what's right or wrong

chorus

I know it's hard to tell him
You wanna go
It shouldn't take this long
to let him know
I know I feel it's gonna be my time
There's still the question
when will you be mine

chorus

verse 1

What am I gonna do



Let It Pour (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Always there when I want you
I know you'll answer my call
We've got our own situations
We don't get into small talk

Let it pour
Whoa oh, let it pour
Whoa oh

Fate brought us together
We knew we'd both fall
Shouldn't really have happened
It caught us on the rebound, baby

Let it pour
Whoa oh, let it pour
Whoa oh

It always rains when I see you
But we weather the storm
We get on with the action
So bring on the black clouds, baby

Let it pour
Whoa oh, let it pour
Whoa oh

You belong to somebody
You ain't mine I ain't yours
It doesn't really matter
So let's close the door

It's never easy to leave you
Don't like you lockin' the door
So raise your glass to the next time
though my cup's overflowing baby

Baby, let it pour
Whoa oh, let it pour



Burn Out (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Jimmy's outside with his motor engine hummin'
Sent me along to see if you were comin'
Out onto the highway gonna break the city limits
Jimmy's gettin ready gonna put his foot in it
Soft shoe Louie drinkin with his floozy Sue
Got the invitation the burn out's due

I'd be a rebel when I'm good and ready
Headin for the bar
Tell Jimmy to cool it
But not to go too far

Burn out on highway nine
There's gonna be a burn out on highway nine

Louie and Jimmy didn't know about the plan
Cops out on the highway
gonna take the job at hand
Been hidin out for Louie gonna get him canned
Gonna catch him in the action
He's gonna wanna make a stand

Jimmy's impatient wants to burn on rubber
He's gotta wait for Louie
cause there ain't no other
The undisputed king of the road said "Jimmy,
I'm ready You better shift your load"

Burn out on highway nine
There's gonna be a burn out on highway nine
C'mon and get it, boy

Louie and Jimmy's out to have a fight
Shakin hands with the man below
Stokin' out the flames
flames burnin' higher
One of them has gotta go
One of them has gotta go

Highway nine and they're starting to roll
Jimmy's hearts thumpin
Blood runnin cold
Louie looks over and gives a sly smile
Says look in your mirror boy
cops are behind
Get a move on Jimmy
You're fallin for the trap
There's only one winner
the loser takes the rap
Well, Bye bye Jimmy,
don't wait for me inside
I'm goin back to floozy Sue
and thanks for the ride

Burn out on highway nine
There's gonna be a burn out on highway nine
Burn out on highway nine
There's gonna be a burn out on highway nine



Hello To Romance (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
She walked into the room just like a dream
I was spellbound into silence
Do you know the way it feels
The rock'n'roll changed to a symphony
Appearing just like magic
But I knew that she was real

Then something deep inside of me
said go ahead and try
Ain't no use in holdin back
Don't kiss the chance goodbye

Hello to romance
Is it goodbye to those one night stands
Where you get what you want
Such a crazy steal
Hello to romance
Hello to romance

I walked across the room to say hello
She raised her head and smiled at me
I knew which way to go
Once she spoke sweet music filled my ears
For hours and hours and hours we talked
Time seemed to disappear

verse 2

chorus

When you see the chance to win romance
act before it slips away
Don't wait until tomorrow
To hear yourself say
I should've done it yesterday
Should've done it yesterday

verse 2

chorus

Amnesty (Doumas)
Love is the sweetest amnesty
Floats like a cloud between the sky and sea
I'll give it to you
could you please give it to me

Love is the sweetest amnesty
Given by the powers
Then let us be
I'll give it to you
Could you please give it to me
'cause I need you

We can talk
We can see
If we disagree we do it honestly
let our lovin' be
The sweetest amnesty

Between you and me
There's bound to be
some conscientious objection
Our spirits dressed in mystery
Speak solely through affection

Repeat

verse 1
"Cos I need you (need you)

chorus

Let our lovin' be
The sweetest amnesty



Caracas (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Gonna fade my jeans in the deep blue sea
wash my cares away
Feelin' the breeze going through the trees
Just the music of the day

Oh, going to Caracas
Beautiful town when the lights go down
Dance the night away
Drinkin' the wines
Make me feel fine
That's what the people say

Oh oh Caracas

Come to the show
and let yourself go
there's magic in the air
Come a long way to make your day
Gonna show you that we care

Oh oh going to Caracas
Oh I'm going to Caracas

Almost there, got my ticket, paid my fare
Almost there, stop us if you dare

oh oh

Almost there, got my ticket, paid my fare
Almost there, yeah stop us if you dare

verse 1

Oh oh going to Caracas
Oh oh going to Caracas



Boulder to Birmingham (Danoff / Harris)
I don't wanna hear your love song
I got on this aeroplane just to fly
and I know there's life below me
but all that you can show me
is the prairie and the sky

And I don't wanna hear a sad story
Full of heartbreak and desire
the last time I felt like this
I was in the wilderness
and the canyon was on fire

And I stood on the mountain
in the night and I watched it burn
I watched it burn, I watched it burn

I would rock my soul
In the bosom of Abraham
I would hold my life
In his saving grace
I would walk all the way
from Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see
I could see your face

Well, you really got me this time
And the hardest part is knowin
I'll survive
I've come to listen for the sound
of the trucks as they go down
Out on ninety-five
And pretend that it's the ocean
Comin down to wash me clean
to wash me clean
Baby do ya know what I mean

chorus x3



Clown Service (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
Is that the clown service I'm callin'
I've made a fool of myself again
There's a hole in my pocket
A patch on my pants
My shoes let in water
I'm feeling you're here

Look up the smile service operator
I've got some frown lines that need to be read
I look in the mirror
I sigh all the time
The face that I see
I know it ain't mine

Ooh we lady
If I had my baby
I wouldn't be wastin' your time
Ooh we lady,
If I had my baby
I wouldn't be blockin', blockin' your line

Is that the love service
I'm callin' come on over mend my broken heart
Was it so silly, was Cupid so stupid
Or maybe it wasn't to be that way at all

chorus

verse 1

I look in the mirror
I sigh all the time
The face that I see I know it ain't mine
Was it so silly, was Cupid so stupid
Or maybe it wasn't to be that way at all



Feet On the Ground (Clarke / Sylvester / Hicks)
If we speak of lovin'
Will it come from our hearts
Do we want this night of love to last forever
Or do we just part

Listen to yourself
Are you sure that's what you wanna say
We know that things sound different
In the cold light of day
Don't get dizzy and lose our heads
On the merry go round
I don't wanna be taken for a ride
Keep both feet on the ground

When we wake up in the morning
Will there be anyone there
Whoever is the first one to rise
Will be the one who cares

So, let's close our eyes and go to sleep
With a thought for the day
Waiting for tomorrow
Just to see if there's truth in what they say
Let's say goodnight
You know goodbye is a hard word to say
Hold me close
We've reached the end
So let's drift on away
With a thought for today

Break

I'm hopin', you're wishin'
I'll stay by your side
I'm wishin', you're hopin'
That a flame doesn't die


And if we speak of lovin'
Will it come from our hearts
Do we want this night of love to last forever
Or do we just part

So, let's close our eyes and go to sleep
With a thought for today
Waiting for tomorrow
Just to see if there's truth in what they say
Let's say goodnight
You know goodbye is a hard word to say
Hold me close
We've reached the end
So let's drift on away
Drift on away
Drift on away
Drift on away
