Lyrics

    Like No Other Night
    (all copyrights registered)

    I was feelin like a prisoner inside myself
    I saw you
    Lookin like you might be
    In a mood to try anything that was new
    Don't be starved for the love and laughter
    Break through total stranger
    You only get one life

    This night could be like no other night
    You and me
    Find the fire in our hearts
    And dance in the light
    Yeah
    We'll take our chances
    How can we lose
    We're making our own rules
    This night can be like no other night

    There's a child I can see in the back of your eyes
    Dyin to be set free
    Let the hunger inside you bring it alive
    Baby
    This night won't last forever
    Break loose
    Girl remember, you only get one life

    This night can be like no other night, you and me
    Can find the fire in our hearts
    And dance in the light
    Yeah
    We'll take our chances
    How can we lose, we're makin our own rules
    This night will be like no other night

    Yeah yeah
    Time you don't use
    You lose it
    You grab every moment you can, before it's gone
    When you can feel, you really
    Know that you're alive
    Show that you're alive
    For one night and

    This night can be like no other night, you and me
    Findin the fire in our hearts
    And dance in the light
    Oh yeah
    We'll take our chances
    How can we lose, we're makin our own rules
    This night will be like, be like no other night

3. Last Time
Lyrics

    Last Time
    (all copyrights registered)

    I've been waitin' for you all night.
    I got somethin' to say so listen good.
    Even fools can see the light.
    You should have known I would.

    'Cause I, I've been a desperate man.
    Wonder why, I just don't understand,
    All the pain, that I feel,
    With every piece of my heart
    That you steal.

    'Cause it's the last time.
    You'll never get another chance again.
    It's been a fine line.
    The feeling's over and I can't pretend.
    It's the last time.

    I heard talkin', I guess it's true.
    You were wrong, I can see it in your eyes.
    Now it's down to me and you,
    So where you gonna hide?

    'Cause I, I've been a desperate man.
    Wonderin' why,
    Why you don't understand,
    All the pain, that I feel,
    With every piece of my heart
    That you steal.

    'Cause it's the last time.
    You'll never get another chance again.
    It's been a fine line.
    The feeling's over and I can't pretend, No.

    You think I'd believe all your lies?
    I handed my heart to you.
    I should have known it was wrong
    Right from the start.
    Now it's time to say goodbye, Whoa, oh.

    Baby it's the last time.
    You'll never get another chance again.
    It's been a fine line.
    The feeling's over and I can't pretend.
    Baby it's the last time.
    You'll never get another chance again.
    It's been a fine line.
    The feeling's over and I can't pretend.
    It's the last time.

Lyrics

    Once In A Lifetime
    (all copyrights registered)

    Lovers, they come and go
    Just like the seasons.
    And lately, it's learnin' to know
    When it's the real one.
    It may be close at hand.
    Don't try to understand it all

    'Cause once in a lifetime,
    First love, they tell you to wait
    For the right one.
    And then it's too late.
    Next time, just leave it to fate,
    You only get a chance,
    Once in a lifetime. Mmm

    Your heart aches,
    For every day, anticipatin'
    Just hold on, your time will come
    'Cause you've been waitin'
    Don't let it bring you down,
    Your second chance will come around

    'Cause once in a lifetime,
    First love, they tell you to wait
    For the right one.
    And then it's too late.
    Next time, just leave it to fate,
    You only get a chance,
    Once in a lifetime. Yeah, eh

    Don't worry cause
    It's bound to happen.
    It ain't easy when
    Your life is passin' you by.
    It doesn't matter how you try.
    You know it's just a state of mind. Yeah, yeah.

    First love, they tell you to wait
    For the right one.
    And then it's too late.
    Next time, just leave it to fate,
    You only get a chance,
    Once in a lifetime.

    Once in a lifetime.
    Once in a lifetime. Mmm

5. Just A Little Love
Lyrics

    Just A Little Love
    (all copyrights registered)

    When I think that you got everything that you need,
    you only ask for more.
    You got dresses from Paris and a Jaguar car,
    Nasty habits that no sheik could afford.
    Easy money and what it buys.
    is the loneliest kind of high.
    If you ever just give it a try,

    Just a little love (just a little love)
    Goes a long way.
    A little love goes a long, long way.
    Just a little love (just a little love)
    Just a little love
    A little love goes a long, long, long, long way.

    You bought a high-dollar house in the Hollywood hills,
    the zip code of the stars.
    Into nouvelle cuisine, candy keeps you lean.
    The doctor takes your credit card.
    In the emptiness of the night, when you never feel satisfied.
    And you're missin' what could make it right.

    Just a little love (just a little love)
    Goes a long way.
    A little love goes a long, long way.
    Just a little love (just a little love)
    Just a little love
    A little love goes a long, long, long, long way.
    Oh yeah.

    Aren't you carryin' cash just a little too far?
    What happens when it's gone?
    Every pleasure gets old, like a river runs dry.
    The things that last come down to one.

    Just a little love, goes a long way.
    A little love goes a long, long way.
    Just a little love, just a little love,
    A little love goes a long, long, long, long way.

    Just a little love, goes a long way.
    A little love goes a long, long way.
    Just a little love, a little love,
    A little love goes a long, long, long, long way.

6. Has There Ever Been A Good Goodbye
Lyrics

    Has There Ever Been A Good Goodbye
    (all copyrights registered)

    I used to love to say your name,
    It'll never sound the same.
    Foolish pride got in my way.
    Now you'll never feel what I meant to say,
    I wasted every chance you gave.

    Why do I feel, I'm goin' in circles.
    All I can do, is wonder why.
    I should have known, I'd be the hurt one,
    I've always been bad at goodbyes.
    Has there ever been a good goodbye?

    Foolish lovers just like me,
    Even lose their memory.
    For they learn to make believe.
    Missin' you is pain without a cure.
    I'd give my life for a minute in yours.

    Why do I feel, I'm goin' in circles.
    All I can do, is wonder why.
    I should have known, I'd be the hurt one,
    I've always been bad at goodbyes.
    Has there ever been a good goodbye?

    Night after night,
    I remember days with you.
    Why tell me why,
    I still keep cryin' over you.
    Oh there ain't no way around it, What we once had is through.

    Why do I feel, I'm goin' in circles.
    All I can do, is wonder why.
    I should have known, I'd be the hurt one,
    'Cause there's never been a good goodbye. . .
    There's never been a good goodbye. Oh Whoa

    Ain't no good goodbye,
    Oh Oh, Whoa Whoa.
    Has there ever been a good goodbye?

7. One In A Million
Lyrics

    One In A Million
    (all copyrights registered)

    I want to tell you girl
    Just how much I care
    Got so many memories of
    The good times that we've shared
    Been in and out of love
    A thousand times or more
    I must be dreaming
    Never felt like this before

    Baby you, you're one in a million
    And I can't believe your mine
    Gonna love you forever
    And every day that you're here with me
    I'll give you the world
    Cause you're one in a million girl

    Once I was lonely
    All the nights seemed so long
    With no one to hold me
    Until you came along
    Thought love was meant for someone else
    Was always hard to find
    But, oh it ain't no mystery
    It was right before my eyes

    Baby you,you're one in a million
    And I can't believe your mine
    Wanna hold you forever
    And every day that your here with me
    I'll give you the world
    Cause you're one in a million girl

    I was a drifter
    Just a man without a meaning
    Now I've been captured
    By this unfamiliar feeling
    You're more than a lover
    You're more than a friend
    And I do know that I need ya
    Now please don't let it end

    I've been in and out of love
    A thousand times or more
    I must be dreaming
    Never felt like this before
    Cause you, you're one in a million
    And I can't believe you're mine
    Gonna love you forever
    And every day that you're here with me
    I'll give you the world
    Cause you're one in a million girl

    Ooh, one in a million
    One in a million girl
    One in a million
    Give you my world
    You're one in a million girl

8. Heart's On Fire
Lyrics

    Heart's On Fire
    (all copyrights registered)

    Whoa, Yeah
    When your heart's on fire,
    Runnin' on the edge.
    Do you know what I mean?
    When your heart's on fire, yeah.
    That's the only time your soul runs free.

    Gotta get away, get a little freedom.
    Somethin' of my own.
    People wanna say, what I should be.
    Why can't they leave me alone?
    Don't know if the way I feel,
    Hunger is the word.
    I can't keep it inside.
    I can feel the heat,
    And the pressure's on.
    Gotta break away, just to stay alive.

    And my heart's on fire.
    And I'm runnin' on the edge,
    Do you know what I mean, Ooh.
    When your heart's on fire, yeah.
    That's the only time your soul runs free.
    Tearin' up the road,
    Listen to the engine scream.
    Give it all that she has.
    Push it to the line,
    But never lookin' back,
    As I live each day like the last.

    You can try, for what you want,
    And get what you deserve.
    Don't let go of your dream.
    When you bet your life,
    You can have it all.
    When it's do or die,
    There's no inbetween.

    If your heart's on fire.
    Livin' on the edge.
    Ooh, and you're burnin' up, Whoa.
    Oh yeah.

    You can live the way you want,
    There's nothing to regret.
    Every move you make,
    And every chance you get.

    When your heart's on fire.
    And runnin' on the edge.
    Do you know what I mean, Ooh.

    When your heart's on fire, yeah.
    That's the only time your soul runs free.
    When your heart's on fire, runnin' on the edge.
    Do you know what I mean?
    Whoa, Oh.
    Heart's on fire.

Lyrics

    Against The Night
    (all copyrights registered)

    A light on your shoulder,
    Cool as ice and bright as lightnin'
    Thunder in your eyes,
    Talk to me and tell me
    I'm in deeper every move.
    'Till I'm almost lost in you.
    Can you feel the way
    That I can't hold back,
    There's no limit to
    What love can do.

    Girl, it's only
    You and me against the night.
    In the shadows,
    Finding love could save your life.
    In a world of strangers,
    The lovers will survive.
    It's all that we have,
    You and me against the night.

    We should be movin',
    Like a thief time steals your chances.
    Now we got the fire,
    But you wonder how long can we
    Keep the spark alive.
    If it takes us through the night.
    Then it's all that I need
    And I won't take less,
    For the moment I know you're mine.

    Girl, it's only
    You and me against the night.
    In the shadows,
    Finding love can save your life.
    In a world of strangers,
    The lovers will survive.
    It's all that we have,
    You and me against the night.

    Lead Break

    Can we keep the spark alive?
    'Cause it takes us
    Through the night.
    Then it's all that I need, And I won't take less,
    For the moment I know you're mine,
    You're mine, yeah.
    Girl, it's only
    You and me against the night.
    In the shadows,
    Finding love can save your life.
    In a world of strangers,
    The lovers will survive.
    It's all that we have,
    You and me against the night.
    You and me against the night.
    Against the night

10. Never Give An Inch
Lyrics

    Never Give An Inch
    (all copyrights registered)

    In extreme town, it can break down
    Anyone who gives it half a chance.
    It's a no man's land.
    Where the heart beats,
    Cold as concrete.
    Come to sell their souls
    Anyway they can.
    Try to understand.

    For everyone who makes it,
    There's a million
    Who get left behind.
    The only way to make it out alive. . .
    Is to never give an inch,
    When you're livin' your life under fire,
    Hold on.
    Never give an inch,
    Never lose sight of your one desire,
    You're gone.
    Never give an inch,
    Take it straight to the end,
    Even if it hurts, even if you bleed,
    Even if you're down on your knees.
    Never give an inch.

    Fast walkers, slick talkers,
    These are people, people talk about.
    The spotlight goes out.
    Between the users, and the losers,
    There's never any room for any doubt.
    You're in or you're out.

    For every one that makes it,
    There's a million who get left behind.
    The only way to make it out alive
    Is to never give an inch,
    When you're livin' your life under fire,
    Hold on.
    Never give an inch,
    Never lose sight of your one desire,
    You're gone.
    Never give an inch,
    Take it straight to the end,
    Even if it hurts, even if you bleed,
    Even if you're down on your knees.
    Never give an inch.

    Some go for desperate measures,
    They're under the gun.
    I go for grace under pressure,
    Standin' my ground, whenever it comes.

    Lead Break

    For everyone who makes it,
    There's a million who get left behind.
    The only way to make it out alive
    Is to never give an inch,
    When you're livin' your life under fire,
    Hold on.
    Never give an inch
    Never lose sight of your one desire,
    You're gone.
    Never give an inch,
    Take it straight to the end,
    Even if it hurts, even if you bleed,
    Even if you're down on your knees.
    Never give an inch.

    Never give an inch.
