  • 03:12 Lyrics A Man's Gonna Love You (Now)

    You’ve been kicked, you feel bad

                You’ve got a case just like one I had

    But don’t worry…A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU, NOW

                No, don’t worry… A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU, NOW

     

    You feel alone, but you’re not

                To get away you’d give up all you’ve got

    But don’t you worry…A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU NOW

                No, don’t worry… A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU NOW

     

    I don’t care how long it takes to reach you

                And I don’t care what I’ve got to go through

     

    I’ll be around, at midnight

                I’ll go to six to make you feel alright

    So, don’t worry…A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU, NOW

                No, don’t worry… A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU, NOW

     

    I don’t care how long it takes to reach you

                And I don’t care what I’ve got to go through

     

    I’ll be around, at midnight

                I’ll go to six to make you feel alright

    So, don’t worry…A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU, NOW

                No, don’t worry… A MAN’S GONNA LOVE YOU, NOW

  • 03:20 Lyrics Head in the Clouds

    I have always lived this way--

         Rambling and struggling

    Looking toward a better day--

         Gambling and juggling

    I was sure my day would come--

         Dreaming and playing

    I knew the odds I'd overcome--

         Scheming and praying... with my

    [CHORUS]

    HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

    Alone in the crowds

    My HEAD IN THE CLOUDS...and my back to the wall!

     

    Easy roads run close to mine--

         Inviting and assuring

    But something I still can't define--

         Exciting and alluring

    Made me take the rougher way--

         Twisting and turning

    Feeling like a castaway--

         Existing and yearning...with my

    [CHORUS]

    HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

    Alone in the crowds

    My HEAD IN THE CLOUDS...and my back to the wall!

     

    I tried to stay on the right side

         But I got lost a time or two

    I'm sorry if I hurt you

         But what was I to do...with my

    [CHORUS]

    HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

    Alone in the crowds

    My HEAD IN THE CLOUDS...and my back to the wall

    (My)

    HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

    Alone in the crowds

    My HEAD IN THE CLOUDS...and my back to the wall!

  • 03:16 Lyrics Florida Dream

    If there’s one thing that I know

                It’s that I’ll always be

    At home in the sunshine

                Surrounded by the sea

    And, if Paradise could lie

                In the world we know today

    It would be right here

                            Beside you, Dear

    In a cabin by the Bay

     

    I’ve traveled all around

                To find out who I’d be

    Looking for a home I found my destiny

                Here with the Old Home Team

                Living in my FLORIDA DREAM

     

    There are places where I’ve been

                The people were so kind

    But they weren’t my style, so in awhile

    I left them all behind

    I was drawn back by the sun,

                The palms and the gentle breeze

    To a place where folks look far ahead

                To meet their children’s needs

     

    I’ve traveled all around

                To find out who I’d be

    Looking for a home I found my destiny

                Here with the Old Home Team

                Living in my FLORIDA DREAM

     

    I once had a feeling of emptiness inside

    Living off my pride

    Taking everything in stride

     

    But, I found that I had to find a better way

    I had gone astray

    My life was only grey

     

    I’ve traveled far and wide

                To find out who I’d be

    Looking for a home I found my destiny

                And you were waiting with the Old Home Team

                Living in my FLORIDA DREAM

  • 02:57 Lyrics To the Archer

    You were the one that I put all my chips on

              Nobody could have told me you weren’t true

    Half of my heart is somewhere deep inside you

              I don’t know where your heart is… girl, do you?

    Do you remember when we made a promise?

              “I’ll never leave you,” we said through our tears

    We had a love we knew would last forever

              I guess forever only lasts ten years!

     

    I’m alone in our room, but I see you

              Smiling at me as if you were here today

    It’s just the ghost of you when you loved me

              My heart’s pounding as the vision fades away

     

    What did I do to you that was so awful

              That you could treat me like an enemy?

    Nobody’s perfect, but I tried so hard, Dear.

              Why do you serve this dish of pain to me?

     

    Take your dream to be free in Colorado

              Give up love, so you can go and play “the game”

    You don’t fool me with your false bravado

              You’re so fragile, you can’t even say my name

     

    Don’t be surprised if you hear through the grapevine

              That I’ve started loving someone new

    “You just don’t get it!” you said, over and over

              Excuse me, now, but I believe I do!

    You were the one that I put all my chips on

              Nobody could have told me you weren’t true

    Half of my heart is somewhere deep inside you

              I don’t know where your heart is… girl, do you?

  • 04:00 Lyrics Outside

    Ain’t it hard when you find. . . your emotions were blind

                Well it’s worse when you finally see. . .

    All the love from your soul. . . you’ve poured into a hole. . .

                Just a pain where your heart used to be.

    Outside looking into a place I called home. . .

                Floating in nowhere. . . I’m so alone!

    Like a man out in space. . . I can’t breathe in this place

                And my world seems so far away.

    But I’ve got to survive. . . to keep love alive,

                And make it through one more day.

    Outside looking into a place I called home. . .

                Floating in nowhere. . . I’m so alone!

    Your blood’s in my veins!  I’m going insane!

                Without you I’m only one half. . .

    You needed a man. . .Babe I’ve done all I can!

                Well at least I was good for a laugh.

    Take your freedom and fly. . . but remember that I

                Will be there if you happen to fall.

    There’s nothing else I can do. . . I will always love you!

                Remember. . .I promised my all!

    Outside  looking into a place I called home. . .

                Floating in nowhere. . . I’m so alone!

                            Oh….Mama…

  • 03:20 Lyrics Miami

    Cruisin’ for fun—South on Route U.S. One, FLA

                Me and the son’s out, kickin’ down Miami Way

    MIAMI—What could anyone say about you?

    MIAMI—(It’s) somewhere north of Peru!

     

    Augie and I seem to fly on my old Yamaha

                We’ve got not worries—We’re not in a hurry, at all

    We’re livin’ like kings, ‘cause we know how to shake off the Blues

                Munchin’ mangoes and matza with lotsa’ Cubans and Jews

    MIAMI— What could anyone say about you?

    MIAMI—(It’s) somewhere north of Peru!

     

    We’ve got a lust for kickin’ up dust—and throwin’ down a memory or two!

    We don’t give a damn, so if we get in a jam—just give us a cell with a view…(of)

     

    MIAMI— What could anyone say about you?

    MIAMI—(It’s) somewhere north of Peru!

     

    We’ve got a lust for kickin’ up dust—and throwin’ down a memory or two!

    We don’t give a damn, so if we get in a jam—just give us a cell with a view (of)

     

    MIAMI—Buenos Dias! Shalom!

    MIAMI—I hope we make it back home! 

    MIAMI!

  • 02:39 Lyrics I Think of You

    Well, I know you know

              ‘Cause we talked about it

    And, I tried so hard to show

              That you were my best friend

              And, I tried… I tried

    To let you see inside me!

    Oh…

    The love you give

              Makes me feel sweet and dizzy

    So positive that I could stay busy

              Loving you

    It’s easy… so easy!

    And, I promise you, My Love

              In everything I do it’s you

    That I’m thinking of

              In everything I do, I Think of You

              And me… writing our own love story

    So sensually

              Living with you is like an endless dream

    It’s easy… so easy!

    And, I promise you, My Love

              With everything I do it’s you

    That I’m thinking of

              In everything I do I Think of You

    Sometimes, life gets tough

              But, I’ll stay here by you

    No, I don’t mind

              I know it’s what you’d do for me, too…

              Loving you… it’s easy, so easy!

    So, I promise you, My Love

              In everything I do it’s you

    That I’m thinking of

              In everything I do I Think of You

  • 03:13 Lyrics Dangerous Man

    I just got in this morning from an all-night revelry

              I was pretty well gone; fell asleep on my lawn

    My neighbors love to talk about me

    They’ve seen me running naked from a girl who stole my car

              And there’s a rumor, I’ve known, that if I come home alone

    I make love to my guitar (and they say I’m a)

    [CHORUS]

    Dangerous Man—always in the middle of it

    Dangerous Man—oooh that’s what I am

     

    I met a girl at a party; everybody said that she was a tease

              They don’t know her—she’s a real cork blower

    She always lets me do what I please

    She knew of a spot on the Southside

              Where we could go to get a little release

    We must have gone too far in the back of my car

              Ended up with the Pittsburgh Police (and they said I’m a)

    [CHORUS]

    Dangerous Man—always in the middle of it

    Dangerous Man—oooh that’s what I am

     

    Now, I spend most of my time running—I’m here—but then I’m not

              And some say I’m wild, but believe me, child

    I give everything—everything I’ve got

    So if there’s a lady out there—who thinks that she and I might fit

              Let me say right now what I’ve said all the while

    I’ll be right in the middle of it (‘cause I’m a)

    [CHORUS]

    Dangerous Man—always in the middle of it

    Dangerous Man—oooh that’s what I am

  • 03:00 Lyrics Secret Rendezvous

    It feels so good… just being here

              To share the magic of the night with you

    Sometimes the past begins to disappear

              It’s another Secret Rendezvous

     

    I stand before you now,

    With no one else around

              Giving everything to you!

    I lie beside you, now

              My clothes are on the ground

    Nobody moves me like you do!

     

    Somehow I can’t believe that it’s a sin

              To have your cake and eat it, too

    The candlelight is dancing on your skin

              It’s another Secret Rendezvous

     

    I stand before you now,

    With no one else around

              Giving everything to you!

    I lie beside you, now

              My clothes are on the ground

    Nobody moves me like you do!

     

    And, in my world

              Everyone depends on me

    All I have to see me through

              Are these nights alone with you

              So, I wait… I wait

     

    Sometimes I wonder how much I can take!

              Is my destruction around the bend?

    It’s a dangerous game we play and hearts could break

              Who can tell us how it’s gonna end?

     

    I stand before you now,

    With no one else around

              Giving everything to you!

    I lie beside you, now

              My clothes are all around!

    Nobody moves me like you do!

    Nobody moves me like you do!

    Nobody moves me… like you do!
