1. Something I Need
Lyrics

    “Something I Need”
    (Don Barnes-Jim Peterik)

    Like the hammer of love the moment that it hits ya
    Like the hair of a dog the mornin after it bit ya
    Like the rough edge of love when it cuts to the heart
    You just gotta let it bleed
    You ain’t just somethin I want
    No... You got somethin I need
    Somethin I need.

    Like a bath when your dirty, a drink when your dry
    Like the last cigarette before you give up for life
    You know I’m dyin of hunger, in desperate straits
    I know I gotta habit to feed
    You ain’t just somethin I want
    No... You got somethin I need.
    Something I need.

    Got you in my sights
    We’re gonna put it right up the middle
    Cause I can do you right
    You know I want it more than a little
    It’s what I need...need ..need

    Like a black cup of coffee when you been slammin all night
    They say I need to be quittin but I don’t take no advice
    You got me walkin sideways like crab in the sand
    My eyes fixed in a permanent bead
    You ain’t just somethin I want
    No... You got somethin I need
    Something I need.

    

2. Hurts Like Love
Lyrics

    “Hurts Like Love”
    (Don Barnes-Danny Chauncey-Jim Peterik)

     

    Every Little whisper, every little sigh
    Everything about you gets me high.
    Each and every movement, every single glance
    Leaves me aching, aching for the chance.

    Cause it’s hard when you’re with me
    I've been hurtin’ so long.

    Never been an angel, never been a saint
    Never been nothin that I ain't
    Guess I always moved on, never took the blame
    Stayin' one step ahead of the pain
    And you shook me, rattled me right down to my soul

    Sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t
    Sometimes your will tells me you won’t
    Can’t put you off with just a shrug
    Cause when you’re gone it hurts like love.

    Without a leg to stand on, without a reason why
    I'm crazy for your love, no place to hide
    Looking for a reason to leave it all behind
    I’m hurtin for your heartbeat next to mine
    Now you shook me rattled me down to my soul

    I can’t slow down, you are my drug
    Your every breath is in my blood
    Can’t put you off with just a shrug
    Cause when it’s good, it hurts like love

    I felt the danger to my heart, knew you were trouble from the start
    Your lovin took me down so hard I caved in like a house of cards

    Sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t
    Sometimes your will tells me you won’t
    Can’t put you off with just a shrug
    Cause when you’re gone it hurts like love

    I can’t slow down, you are my drug
    You’re every breath is in my blood
    Been holdin back this fatal flood
    When the pressure breaks it hurts like love.
    Hurts Like Love

3. Haley's Got A Harley
Lyrics

    “Haley’s Got A Harley”
    (Donnie VanZant-Don Barnes-Jim Peterik-Johnny VanZant)

    Well she don’t need nothin from that man no more
    No she took it all with her when she walked out the door
    I say 1-800-PARTY, that’s the number to call
    Now Haley’s got a Harley and she’s leaving it all

    Now she’s headed out to Sturgis got it all wrapped up in leather
    Got her Softail shined up, don’t worry about the weather
    Yeah she used to be the quiet type, the shyest of all
    But now Haley’s got a Harley, feelin’ ten feet tall

    Look at her now, look at her go
    Out from the shadows, into the show
    Ridin it hard, ridin it low
    Flyin her colors, she’s ready to roll

    Just like the tattoo of an eagle on her shoulder
    Yeah, her spirit's wild and free and the party's never over
    Well, she’s ridin’ on the wind just a' wavin at em all
    Cause now Haley’s got a Harley and she’s having a ball

    Free as a Bird, watch her in flight
    Across South Dakota, into the night
    Ridin to live, livin to ride
    She calls it heaven, ridin’ for life

4. Jam On
Lyrics

    “Jam On”
    (Don Barnes-Jim Peterik-Danny Chauncey)

    If you think you can change the world...

    World's runnin down
    And people ain't relating to each other anymore
    It's a different sound
    This ain’t no time to disrespect our brothers
    Cause we’re all in this together

    And if our mission's to be true
    It’s got to start with me and you...so

    Go and chance it for the planet
    No time for, don’t need war
    For our children, no more killin
    For all Man, take a stand
    If you think you can change the world
    Jam on!
    Together we can change the world...

    It’s a cryin' sound
    When intolerance and hatred break the silence in our soul
    Where tears soak the ground, a flower grows
    To prove that love’s the power that still connects us all

    And if confusion rules the day
    Just got to find a different way

    Go and chance it for the planet
    No time for, don’t need war
    For our children, no more killin
    For all Man, give a damn
    If you think you can change the world
    Jam on!
    Together we can change the world...

    If we come together for one thing
    One cause, one song we can all sing
    If wounds can be healed with a joyful sound
    Jam On!

5. Make Some Sense Of It
Lyrics

    “Make Some Sense of It”
    (Don Barnes-Jim Peterik-Donnie Van Zant)

    Love runs in circles, it's a game of hearts
    It’s a long shot gamble few can win
    After the third time you’ve been torn apart
    You swear you won’t be fooled again

    But loves a joy that can't be rushed
    It lifts you up when it’s all too much
    We can join the numbers, we can call it quits
    Or tough it out
    Make some sense of it.

    Remember how it was when we began
    Young lovers taking on the world
    If there's a place for us to start again
    I believe its time to take the turn.

    But loves a joy that can't be rushed
    It lifts you up when it’s all too much
    We can talk it over, we can call it quits
    Let’s you and me
    Make some sense of it.

    With every moment passing by
    Were just wastin time
    When we're not together
    This is the first day of our life
    When we're here today, we're livin without
    It's time to make it right

    Loves a joy that can’t be rushed
    It lifts you up when the pains too much
    We can talk it over, we can call it quits
    Or tough it out, make some sense of it

    We can make some sense of it
    We can talk it over
    Or we can call it quits

    We can make some sense of it

6. Quick Fix
Lyrics

    “Quick Fix”
    (Donnie VanZant-Jim Peterik)

    Don’t need no doctor, don’t need no pills
    Nothing it gives me's gonna cure my ills
    I’ve got it bad baby and that ain’t no lie

    There ain't no vaccine for what I've got
    Your kind of poison it don’t come in a shot
    It’s just a cravin’ baby that I can’t deny

    I’ve been tearin' up the town slammin' whiskey down
    Ain't nothing but the real thing gonna do...no
    There ain’t no quick fix for you.
    Babe...Lawd...There ain’t no quick fix

    You drive me crazy baby with those eyes
    When you walked in the room you hit me broadside
    Its a little past midnight
    How blue can you get?

    No matter how I try to drink this county dry
    There really ain’t no substitute....no
    I need a quick fix for you

    There ain’t no easy answer
    There ain’t no miracle cure
    I told the doctor what I needed
    He said you better just run to her

    Don’t need no doctor, don’t need no pills
    Nothing it gives me gonna cure my ills
    Well, no matter how I try to drink this county dry
    There really ain't no substitute...no.
    There ain’t no quick fix for you

    There ain't no quick fix.

7. The Squeeze
Lyrics

    “The Squeeze”
    (Don Barnes-Donnie VanZant-Danny Chauncey
    -Robert White Johnson-Jeff Carlisi)


    Well it’s the same old story, but it never made a lick of sense to me
    How it’s always on the working man to pay for everything we never see
    Do you know what I mean?
    Well you can call it what you like
    But where I come from, they call it the Squeeze

    All this talk about some changes
    It's just politicians promising the moon
    So it's do without, it's in and out
    The fools on the Hill gonna need more soon

    Well you can call it that you like
    But where I come from they call it the squeeze
    put the squeeze on me
    yeah, they're gonna put the squeeze on me and you

    And they say don’t drink the water
    Could be something in your coffee or your tea
    And who knows just what’s in the air?
    You take a chance now every time you breathe
    Well you can call it what you like
    But where I come from, they call it the squeeze

    So you work two jobs to get ahead
    You wind up with less than you had before
    do you know what I mean?
    And if money can't buy happiness
    Then why do I keep needin’ more and more?

    Well you can call it what you like
    But where I come from they call it the squeeze
    But that don’t make it right just don’t give up don’t give in
    Call it anything you like,
    Where I come from
    They call it the squeeze

8. The Play
Lyrics

    “The Play”
    (Don Barnes-Danny Chauncey-Gary Moffatt)


    Hey look at you now
    Don’t cry, pick yourself off the ground
    You say you're through with love and..
    It tore you down
    And you tried to stay and take it somehow
    Your whole life’s ahead now

    Don’t let it get to you
    There’s no real reason to
    Carry the weight of the world

    Hey, it’s not what we say
    It’s how we act here today
    It’s all in the play on the stage

    Hey look at you now, you smile but I see you hurt
    You can't hide that from me
    You tell me you know
    But that’s not the way things have to go
    When love breaks you down

    Don’t let it get to you
    There’s no real reason to
    Carry the weight of the world

    Hey, no it’s not what we say
    Its how we act here today
    It’s all in the play on the stage

    Life can be so cruel
    Love makes us play the fool
    But there’ll always be better days

    Don’t let it get to you
    There’s no real reason to
    Carry the weight of the world

    Hey, no it’s not what we say
    It’s how we act here today
    Cause we're all in the play on the stage

9. Bad Looks Good on You
Lyrics

    "Bad Looks Good on You"
    (Don Barnes-Danny Chauncey-Drew Ramsey)


    All day you’re havin' to play the good girl
    And you never be letting your guard down
    But when the nighttime calls you to a different world
    You turn your attitude around

    With just a little bit of intimate danger
    And a lot of genuine mystery
    When the music’s jumpin' it starts to change ya
    You got your tight red dress, high heeled shoes
    And a new barbed-wire tattoo...baby
    Bad looks good on you

    It's not like your shakin’ it for the first time
    Only a fool wouldn’t realize
    And the way you move's about to blow my mind
    You’ve got me wild-eyed and hypnotized

    With just a little bit of intimate danger
    And a lot of genuine mystery
    When the music’s jumpin' it starts to change ya
    I’m mesmerized by the way you move
    Keep doin' the things you do
    Bad looks good on you

    Underneath your angel face
    There hidden in a darker place
    A place where only you can go and no one else can see
    And as the darkness starts to fall
    Your inner voice begins to call
    A wilder spirit trying to break free

10. Trooper with an Attitude
Lyrics

    “Trooper with an Attitude”
    (Don Barnes)

    In the flashin blue lights
    Now he’s readin your rights
    He’s a mean dog barkin in the dust
    and the dark in the middle of the night
    Ain’t no beggin’ you can do
    You got trouble times 2
    A Trooper with an Attitude

    He said you’re crossin’ that line
    You’ll never beat it this time
    And he laughs in your face
    so you feel the disgrace
    Now you're spreadin’ em wide
    He's your worse dream comin true
    You got trouble times 2
    A Trooper with an Attitude

    So you try to shake it clear
    You’re wishin’ you weren’t here
    You don't try to make a go,
    its all on video and he’s smellin’ the fear
    He's your worse dream comin true
    You got trouble times 2
    A Trooper with an Attitude

11. Hiding From Yourself
Lyrics

    “Hiding From Yourself”
    (Donnie VanZant-Jim Peterik)

    I see you sneakin’ round with that stash you carry
    Looking like a cat that swallowed a canary
    You can hide it from the world
    You can wear a good disguise
    The weight of self deception is right there in your eyes

    Little sister cant you see your own good?
    The light inside of you is understood
    Don’t put yourself down for being human now
    Don’t have to live like someone else

    You’re Hiding from Yourself
    You’re running from the one friend that you really need
    You're Hiding from yourself baby
    You’re lying to the one that needs you desperately
    Baby you don’t have to hide
    You can always run to me

    I see you with your friends shoutin at the moon
    It aint a party if its over too soon
    You can take it to the edge
    You can buy a little time
    Or waste you life’s emotions in a silent pantomine

    Little sister no one understands
    You try to numb the pain anyway you can
    But now you've seen the rain
    And now it’s time for change
    Look out the sun is breaking through

    You’re Hiding from Yourself
    You’re running from one friend that you really need
    You're Hiding from yourself baby
    You’re lying to the one that needs you desperately
    Baby you don’t have to hide
    You can always run to me

    There is no reason for your tears
    You’re like a scared little girl
    There is a cure all for your fears
    Look to the light of the world

    You're Hiding from Yourself

12. Sheriff's County Line
Lyrics

    "Sheriff’s County Line"
    (Jim Peterik-Don Barnes-
    Donnie VanZant-Johnny VanZant)


    In a place called Sheriff’s County
    There’s a story goin’ round
    And it echoes through the swamps of FLA
    About the sheriff and his daughter
    That he guarded with his life
    With a shotgun just to keep those wolves at bay

    But she was a fire beyond control
    No chains could hold her captive soul

    Now the legend grows as days unwind
    About passions strong and justice blind
    To the reckless deeds that hide behind
    The Sheriff’s County Line

    Now the sheriff had a deputy that he treated like a son
    But he warned Calhoun not to see Estelle
    'Cause he knew that she was trouble
    Had her mama’s wild side
    And if he slipped he’d make his life a living hell

    But flesh is weak and passion's strong
    There in the backwoods around dawn
    They say it was a murder in the first degree
    When the sheriff caught them in the heat
    Just one shot killed the deputy
    On the Sheriff’s County Line

    One step closer to midnight
    Sittin’ there just waitin’ to die
    The young preacher asks if he’s ready
    To make his peace and speak his mind
    He said “Blood is thicker than water”
    And my temper must've got out of hand
    And just before they threw the switch on Old Sparky
    He said “I’d do it all over, Do it all over again”

    Now Estelle is softly crying at the foot of her daddy’s grave
    As the preacher reads the bible verse out loud
    You could see her eyes a wanderin’
    As he turns another page
    And she pulls him ever gently from the crowd

    She tells him,
    Oh she feels so all alone
    And begs him to walk her safely home

    And the madness starts all over again
    Calhoun’s curse is the preacher’s end
    Cause the forbidden fruit is the sweetest sin
    On the Sheriff’s County Line
