1. Fade To Blue
Lyrics

    Fade To Blue
    (all copyrights registered)

    Faded curtain, faded moon, through a broken sky
    Staring at a photograph, the ghost of you and I
    Those were times, yeah, those were good times that we shared
    We thought those nights would never end....

    (Chorus)
    Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
    Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
    Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
    I'm just a shadow on the highway..........Fade to Blue.

    I hear you cryin' in your sleep
    I can feel it 'cross the miles
    Love unspoken runs so deep
    Like the tears behind your smile
    Those were times, yeah, those were hard times that we had
    I'd even take them back again.....

    (2nd Chorus)
    Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
    Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
    Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
    Another shadow on the highway.......Fade to Blue.

    ......I fade to...I fade to...I fade to blue
    (Every night I fade to blue)

    (Refrain)
    There'll be times, girl, there'll be good times on the way
    I'll always be comin' back again.

    (3rd Chorus)

    ~J. Peterik, D. Barnes, D. Chauncey

2. Just Can't Leave You Alone
Lyrics

    Just Can't Leave You Alone
    (all copyrights registered)

    Stopped by your house, they said you weren't home
    But maybe they lied
    I would have known if you had come or gone
    Cause I stood by your gate two days in a row
    Finally left you a note
    Said I remember how you smiled at me
    And how you picked me out of the crowd
    It's funny how the guy next to me swore that it was him you singled out.

    (Chorus)
    Wherever you go, I'll follow
    'cause I'll never leave you alone
    To the ends of the earth, I'll follow
    'cause I just can't leave you alone.

    You play hard to get, got me climbin' the walls
    And I took the fall
    And got chased by your security dog
    If I change my look, maybe then you would see
    Maybe you'd notice me
    I'll become whatever you want me to be
    I know someday I'll be your guest
    All my friends say I'm crazy
    The man from the magazine says I'm obsessed

    (Repeat Chorus)

    (Bridge)
    You may think I'm extreme
    But you sang to me ' live out your dream'
    So I can't let you slip away now
    If my dreams die, then I die
    And I know someway, somehow

    (Refrain)
    I know someday I'll be your guest, yeah
    All my friends say I'm crazy
    The man from the magazine says I'm obsessed

    (Repeat Chorus)

    ~D. Barnes, D. Chauncey

3. Deja Voodoo
Lyrics

    Deja Voodoo
    (all copyrights registered)

    Black lights, green eyes starin' me down
    The moment I walked in the room
    There's this tall, dark woman who's dancin' alone
    And she makes me wanna howl at the moon.
    Is this a dream, or is it that I've been here before?
    Takin' my mind, takin' her time, takin' control. Don't you know?

    (Chorus)
    That Deja' Voodoo, New Orleans hoodoo
    She's got a mojo from hell
    That spell I'm under, sometimes I wonder if she's
    Witch, queen, or madamoiselle
    If Kama Sutra's too hot to suit ya
    Well, you're not her kind of man
    That Deja' Voodoo- I will if you do
    It's Deja' Vu all over again.

    She takes my hand and she whispers to me
    And says heaven's just beyond the door
    She lights the fire and makes it all come to me
    By tomorrow I'll be down on the floor.
    Is it a dream, or is it that I've been here before?
    Takin my mind, takin her time , takin' control. More and more?

    (2nd Chorus)

    (Bridge)
    The moon takes over, desire gets stronger
    The feelins won't let me go.
    I run for cover, I'm so far under her spell, can't you tell?

    (Refrain)
    Is this a dream, or is it that I've been here before?
    Takin' my mind, takin' her time, takin' control. Don't you know??

    (3rd Chorus)

    ...Deja' Voodoo woman......deja' voodoo woman........

    ~D. Barnes, D. Van Zant, R.W. Johnson, J. Peterik, J. Carlisi

4. Find My Way Back
Lyrics

    Find My Way Back
    (all copyrights registered)

    I remember the last time we talked
    How I listened but still did not hear
    A fool thinks he's wise to it all
    Even as love disappears
    Now I'm down on my knees like a wounded man
    I've made mistakes that I just can't ignore.
    I'll follow my heart down this highway
    And hope it leads back to your door.

    (Chorus)
    If you could read between the lines on my face
    You'd see just what I'm goin' through.
    And if you believe in me, each step I will try to replace
    Till I Find My Way Back to you .

    It's hard to admit when your lost
    When pride seems to stand in your way
    And the blues is your only companion, walking these streets in the rain.
    Still I know in my soul I can get you back
    Your memory won't leave me alone
    Is your heart free? Or still here with me?
    Feels like I'm so far from home.

    (Chorus)
    If you could read between the lines on my face
    You'd see the regret showin' through
    And if you believe in me
    Each step I will try to retrace (...to find my way back..)
    If you could feel the tears I cry in the night
    Only silence when I call your name
    And if it takes all my life
    I'll Find My Way Back to you.........

    (Bridge)
    I'll Find My Way Back to you
    I'll Find My Way Back...
    I'll Find my Way back to you.

    (Refrain)
    And If you believe in me
    Each step I will try to retrace...(to find my way back)...
    If you could feel the tears I cry in the night
    Only silence when I call your name
    And if it takes all my life
    Each step I will try to retrace
    Till I Find My Way Back to you.

6. After The Fire Is Gone
Lyrics

    After The Fire is Gone
    (all copyrights registered)

    You never know what the moment means till it's finally gone
    You burned so fast, you put out the flame, tell me, what went wrong?
    How do you get back to the heat of yesterday?
    How do you live feelin' like you're dying more each day?
    After the Fire Is Gone
    After the Fire is Gone

    You had the whole world at your feet and you stood so tall
    You played the game one too many times, now you've lost it all
    What got you started now is a million miles away
    You wake up only to find that you're a little bit too late
    After the Fire is Gone
    After the Fire is Gone

    (Bridge)
    World keeps turnin', life keeps burnin'
    After the Fire is Gone
    World keeps rollin' on and on and on and on and on .....
    After the Fire is Gone

    It's gone, it's gone, it's gone, it's gone.....
    After the Fire is Gone.

    (Repeat)

    ~D. Van Zant, J. Van Zant, R.W. Johnson, P. Buchanan

7. Miracle Man
Lyrics

    Miracle Man
    (all copyrights registered)

    You say you turned your life around
    You got it all worked out
    You say the search for higher ground
    Ain't what your all about.
    And still your reaching in the dark
    For the one who holds the key
    But all your so called heroes
    Ain't what they seem to be
    And maybe what you wanted
    Ain't exactly what you need....

    (Chorus)
    You can lose your heart a thousand times
    Lookin' for your Miracle Man
    You can try and change the storyline
    Hopin' things will be better then
    But when you look to a higher love
    To save you where you stand
    It's only then you'll find your Miracle Man.

    No satisfaction in your world
    It's left you all undone
    The happiness is in you, girl.
    Don't give it up for no one.
    You know its time to break down
    You know it's time to lose control
    And trust the one who loves you
    To your heart and soul.
    And knowin' that your needed
    Is all you need to know......

    (2nd Chorus)

    (Bridge)
    He's not on any corner
    It's hard to track him down
    You won't find the answer
    Walkin' the streets of this town.
    Try lookin' inside yourself.

    (3rd Chorus)

    ~D. Barnes, D. Chauncey, J. Peterik, J. Carlisi

8. Shelter Me
Lyrics

    Shelter Me
    (all copyrights registered)

    There's a woman who tries to hide
    From a man who's dark inside.
    For her children she says a prayer
    Fear and desperation keeps her there.
    Will redemption come around in time to save her?
    She wants to run from the life that he gave her. She cries....

    (Chorus)
    "Love, come and Shelter Me,
    Your light is all I need to survive.
    Take me from where the cold wind's blowin,
    To where the healing water's flowin',
    Love, come and Shelter Me."

    ...and there's a beggar, feels like half a man.
    He fought the war, now he fights the pain.
    He was a hero in a foreign land
    Now he's flat broke and stranded in the rain.
    But his dignity runs deeper than the ocean
    In a voice that trembles with emotion, he cries...

    (2nd Chorus)
    "Love, come and Shelter Me
    Your light is all I need to survive.
    In a world where the cold winds blowin'
    Will your love be a shelter for me?"

    (Bridge)
    So blind, yet we try to see
    Fallin' short of what could be
    All hopes and dreams goin' nowhere.
    So we pray for a new tomorrow
    To wash our sorrows away

    (Refrain)
    Pray for a new tomorrow
    To wash our sorrows away....

    (3rd Chorus)
    "Love, come and Shelter Me"........

    ~D. Barnes, D. Chauncey, J. Peterik, J. Carlisi

9. Homeless Guitar
Lyrics

    Homeless Guitar
    (all copyrights registered)

    Well, I know how it feels to be ripped from my roots
    And tossed into a world unbending.
    Not long ago I was bitten by the truth
    Some folks spend their whole life pretending.
    Now I start each mornin' with the sunlight by my side
    Find another highway, hitch another ride
    And I use this six-string like an archer wields his bow
    I believe when the arrow finds its mark
    It pierces the soul.

    (Chorus)
    Three songs for a quarter each time I open my case
    Four chords and the voice of a good man fallen from grace
    No pity for me mister, I'm proud to be a drifter
    A long shot from bein' a star
    You know, the times ain't been easy
    For me and my Homeless Guitar.

    Now I know how it feels to be judged in a glance
    Stripped of your pride and your passion.
    I only know that the rivers of the soul
    Run deeper than birthright or fashion.
    I see you look me over, feel the weight of your stare
    I'm sendin' you a message but you act like you don't care.
    I see a ripple, a crack in your facade
    You know, it really don't matter who you think you are
    We're the same under God.

    (2nd Chorus)

    (Bridge)
    I thank the Lord above for the gift He's given me
    I'm richer than most men
    Got a friend in my six-string
    In a world where trust ain't got no guarantee
    If you ain't got a penny
    Gonna sing you this song for free, yeah.

    (refrain)
    Oh, I use these six-strings like an archer wields his bow
    I believe when the arrow finds its mark
    It pierces the soul.

    (3rd Chorus)

    ~D. Van Zant, J. Peterik, J. Carlisi

10. Saving Grace
Lyrics

    Saving Grace
    (all copyrights registered)

    Without direction I walked the night
    I was alone, a single beam of light
    One glance and you changed my blues
    To a prism of light, a thousand hues.
    Now, I must climb to the rainbows arc
    Who knows, I might find a halo for your heart.
    Whenever I'm lost for words
    And my whole world's fallin' apart.....

    (Chorus)
    You are my Saving Grace
    You are the light of a love everlasting
    I find a hiding place in your arms
    My one and only Saving Grace.

    I fought the world with a restless heart
    Kept my emotions locked away in the dark.
    Then you came to build me up
    When this world could only tear me apart....

    (2nd Chorus)

    (bridge)
    For the rest of your life
    You can count on me
    To never let you down.
    When you whisper to me
    You give me strength to believe
    That I can hold on somehow.

    (3rd Chorus)

    ~J.Peterik, D. Barnes, D. Chauncey, J. Carlisi

    She wakes up in the mornin', puts her face on
    grabs a cup o' coffee then she's on that phone..
    (Chorus)
    That woman loves to Talk (...she loves to talk...talk)
    Yeah, she's what I want (she's what I want)
    I don't mean to sound complainin'

    That woman Loves to Talk!

    (Bridge)

    Well, I know she might be different, that's what I like
    She's something else when we turn down the light

    That woman loves to Talk! (...she loves to talk...talk..)
    Yeah, she's what I want (she's what I want)
    I wouldn't change a thing about her

    She could own Southern Bell ..for as much as she talks
    She gets her recreation makin' long-distance calls!
    (4th Chorus)
    That woman Loves to Talk (...she loves to talk...talk..)
    Yeah she's what I want (she's what I want)
    I don't mean to sound complainin'
    She's my source of entertainment
    That woman Loves to Talk!

    (2nd Bridge)

    Yeah, she talks about this
    Sometimes she talks about that
    Every operator knows her name and address (...she loves to talk...talk..)
    Can you hold on, please,
    I'll check the line
    I hope you got plenty of quarters and dimes!
    (5th Chorus)
    That Woman Loves to Talk (...she loves to talk...talk..)
    yeah, she's what I want (she's what I want)
    I wouldn't change a thing about her
    wouldn't live this life without her
    That woman Loves to Talk! (...she loves to talk!)

    I wouldn't change a thing about her
    wouldn't live this life without her
    That woman Loves to Talk! (...she loves to talk!)

    I wouldn't change a thing about her
    wouldn't live this life without her
    That woman Loves to Talk!

13. Shatter The Silence
Lyrics

    Shatter The Silence
    (all copyrights registered)

    You better run, here comes your mama
    Her eyes see red this time
    You should be workin' boy, instead of daydreamin'
    She says that you're a bad one
    got the wrong things on your mind
    So you turn up the music loud to block out her screamin'
    .....No words of love are ever spoken
    ....and he's gonna leave this place ...once the door is open
    (1st Chorus)
    He'll Shatter the Silence with every beat of his heart
    The best kept secrets never stay in the dark
    Defiance only makes him strong
    The child grows up, he ain't silent for long.......not for long

    Your daddy tried to buy your silence
    His eyes seemed to hold a threat
    He'd blame all your bruises on rough games in the schoolyard
    The strike of his hand upon you
    was all the attention that you could get
    Soon you would push your luck just to get all you needed
    .......'Til now all the shame remained unspoken
    .....But watch how the children rise....once their eyes are opened
    (2nd Chorus)
    They'll Shatter the Silence, now it's their turn to tell
    It's a long way from Heaven when you're livin' in Hell
    Defiance...It's time to even the score
    The child grows up, he ain't silent no more
    The Silence....Now it's time to be heard
    It's hard stayin' quiet when you can't breathe a word
    Silence...It's a two-edge sword
    The child grows, he ain't silent no more.....
    He ain't silent no more!....no no..

    They'll Shatter the the Silence...
    Shatter the Silence....(silent no more)
    They'll Shatter the Silence......

    ~D. Chauncey, D. Barnes, J. Peterik
