Track Name: You Woke Me Up
MY LIFE WAS GOING ALONG ALRIGHT
THEN ONE DAY YOU CAUGHT MY EYE
IN THAT INSTANT MY HEART FILLED WITH LIGHT
YOU WOKE ME UP INSIDE NOW BABY
AIN’T IT FUNNY HOW LIFE SLIPS AWAY
SEEMS ONE DAY YOU’RE YOUNG THE NEXT YOU’RE OLD
WE NEVER SEEM TO TAKE THE TIME TO PLAY OR TO FEED OUR SOUL
IT NEVER WOULD HAVE OCCURRED TO ME I COULD EVER FEEL LIKE THIS
NOW BABY CAN’T YOU SEE YOU’RE THE LOVE AH THAT I’VE BEEN MISSIN’
IT NEVER WOULD HAVE OCCURRED TO ME I COULD EVER FEEL LIKE THIS
NOW BABY CAN’T YOU SEE JUST ONE TOUCH AND WE’LL BE KISSING
EVERYBODY DESERVES TO FIND THE WINGS TO GIVE ‘EM FLIGHT
YOU’RE MY EAGLE MY JOY IN LIFE YOU WOKE ME UP INSIDE NOW BABY
YOU WOKE ME UP INSIDE
Track Name: Love Knocks Twice
I FIRST SAW YOU JUST A PICTURE IN A MAGAZINE
YOUR TEETH REAL WHITE AND YOUR SKIN AIRBRUSHED SO CLEAN
A FANCY GIRL SURELY LIVING UP A FANCY LIFE
TURNED THE PAGE FELL RIGHT BACK TO EARTH AND SIGHED, I'M JUST A NORMAL GUY
AND THEN LATE ONE NIGHT YOU'RE SNIFFIN' MELONS ON THE PRODUCE AISLE
MY HEART STOOD STILL WHEN YOUR EYES CAUGHT MINE AND SMILED
YOU WALKED RIGHT UP AND ASKED IF I WAS STALKIN' YOU AROUND
I WAS MORTIFIED TRIED TO SPEAK BUT COULDN'T MAKE A SOUND
DUMBFOUNDED WHITE-FACED CLOWN
BOY YOU GOTTA BE READY WHEN LOVE WALKS IN YOU BETTER BE READY FOR LOVE
CAUSE WHEN THE GIRL OF YOUR DREAM WALKS THROUGH THE DOOR
SIEZE THE MOMENT CAUSE LOVE SHE DON'T ALWAYS KNOCK TWICE
I'M JUST A FOOL TO THINK SHE'D BE MINE
WHO CAN SAY WHAT'S ON A WOMAN'S MIND OH NO
I'M BUBLING BENEATH HER WATER LINE HYPNOTIZED
THEN YOU WALKED AWAY GOT NO NUMBER OR NO STREET ADDRESS
I COULD FOLLOW YOU BUT YOU'D PROBABLY CALL FOR MY ARREST
I FELL TO THE FLOOR PROPPED AGAINST AN EVIAN DISPLAY
THEN YOU PEEKED AROUND THE CORNER AND I HEARD YOU SAY
BOY IT'S YOUR LUCKY DAY
BOY YOU GOTTA BE READY WHEN LOVE WALKS IN YOU BETTER BE READY FOR LOVE
CAUSE WHEN THE GIRL OF YOUR DREAMS WALKS THROUGH THE DOOR
SIEZE THE MOMENT CAUSE LOVE SHE DON'T ALWAYS KNOCK TWICE
LOVE DON'T LOVE DON'T ALWAYS KNOCK TWICE LOVE IT AIN'T GONNA KNOCK TWICE
Track Name: Dreamin' In Black & White & Red
ONE VOICE SAYS LEAVE ONE BEGS TO STAY
THE KEEPER OF MY HEART LEFT WATCHING MY LIFE FALL INTO DISARRAY
WHAT IF YOUR FATHER’S RIGHT AND OUR LOVE JUST EVAPORATES
I WOULD FOLLOW YOU ANYWHERE
DREAMIN’ IN BLACK AND WHITE AND RED
LOVER OF MY SOUL THEY’RE OUT TO STEAL OUR DREAMS
PLANTING SEEDS OF FEAR AND DOUBT
THEY TRY TO MAKE OUR LOVE SEEM UNCLEAN
YOU WERE WARNED ABOUT ME
ALL YOUR FRIENDS SAID DON’T YOU DARE
BUT YOU FOLLOWED YOUR HEARD AND JUST DIDN’T CARE
DREAMIN’ IN BLACK AND WHITE AND RED
THE NOISE GETS LOUD AND THE ROOM TURNS COLD
FEAR FALLS FACE DOWN LIKE A JAUNDICED ROSE
THE LOVE WE SHARE NO ONE COULD KNOW
LET ME SEE YOU SMILE PULL BACK YOUR HAIR
DREAMIN’ IN BLACK AND WHITE AND RED
Track Name: Gangsta Samurai
WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN THE MONEY’S ALL GONE
THIS OLD WORLD GIVES BIRTH THEN IT EATS ITS’ YOUNG
THESE MEAN STREETS ARE A KILLING FLOOR
POLITICIANS LOOK THE OTHER WAY AS OUR FUTURE GOES IGNORED
SO MANY CHILDREN LEFT ON THEIR OWN NOBODY’S THERE WHEN THEY GET HOME
ABUSED THEY LEAVE THEIR CHILDHOOD PLAY
THEY CAN’T FIND ANOTHER WAY NO OTHER WAY
PRETTY LADY WALKING DOWN THE STREET
KEEPS HER EYES STRAIGHT DOWN AFRAID OF WHAT SHE’LL SEE
BUT YOU CAN TELL THAT SHE WANTS TO HELP THE CHILD
BUT SHE’S TOO SCARED OF THE GANGSTA SAMURAI
KAMAKAZIS WAIT IN THE DARK ON A DARE THEY’LL RIP OUT YOUR HEART
WHAT BROUGHT SOCIETY TO THE EDGE AND WHERE WILL THE MADDNESS STOP
SO MANY CHILDREN LEFT ON THEIR OWN NOBODY’S THERE WHEN THEY GET HOME
ABUSED THEY LEAVE THEIR CHILDHOOD PLAY
THEY CAN’T FIND ANOTHER WAY NO OTHER WAY
CAN’T FIND ANOTHER WAY NO OTHER WAY
Track Name: This Angel Must Fly
YOU ASKED ME AS YOUR FRIEND
WAS SHE SOMEONE SPECIAL TO ME AND I TOLD YOU A LIE
I KNOW JUST HOW YOU FEEL
SHE CAN MAKE THE SUN AND MOON ASHAMED TO SHINE
WHILE SOOTHING THE BEAST IN YOUR LIFE
I KNOW YOU PRAY SHE’LL STAY FOREVER
THE THOUGHT OF HER LEAVING DRIVES YOU WILD
SHE’S NATURE’S PERFECT GIFT SHE’S A REFLECTION IN GOD’S EYE
NO DON’T QUESTION JUST LOVE HER TONIGHT
‘CAUSE ALL TOO SOON THIS ANGEL MUST FLY
ANOTHER PLACE AND TIME I BUILT MY WHOLE WORLD AROUND HER LOVE
I TURNED AROUND AND SHE WAS GONE
A CAT WITHIN A CAGE NOW I SEE I HELD ON FAR TOO TIGHT
AND I FRIGHTENED HER AWAY
ALL THESE MANY YEARS I’VE BEEN WONDERING
WHAT WERE THE REASONS FOR HER SAYING GOODBYE
NOW WE’RE HERE MY FRIEND AND YOU’RE ASKIN’ MY ADVICE
NO DON’T QUESTION JUST LOVE THAT GIRL TONIGHT
CAUSE ALL TOO SOON THIS ANGEL MUST FLY
ALL TOO SOON THIS ANGEL MUST FLY
Track Name: New Mojo
THE CANDLE’S SLOWLY DWINDLING
THEN FROM ACROSS THE ROOM I SAW HER THERE
MY HEART JUST STARTED MENDING LYING TO MYSELF PRETENDING
YOU’RE HER NEXT UNHAPPY ENDING AS YOU TWO WALKED AWAY
SHE TOSSED HER HEAD AND WINKED AT ME BE CAREFUL BOY SHE CUTS JUST LIKE A KNIFE
I GUESS I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU SHE’S THE DEVIL’S SOUL FOOD
SHE STEALS YOUR BREATH AWAY THROWS YOU DOWN WON’T LET YOU SPEAK
IN HER SPELL FAR TOO WEAK TO FIGHT SHE’S GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD TONIGHT
YOU’RE GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO OR SHE’LL EAT YOU UP ALIVE
YOUR GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO CAUSE WITHOUT A DOUBT
SHE’LL CHEW YOU UP AND SPIT YOU OUT BUT OH GOD WHAT A RIDE
SHE’S GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD TONIGHT
THERE’S NO WAY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR HAPLESS HEART WON’T BE THE SAME
THE SIREN SWEETLY SINGS AS YOU TAKE FLIGHT
YOU’RE GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO OR SHE’LL EAT YOU UP ALIVE
YOUR GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO CAUSE WITHOUT A DOUBT
SHE’LL CHEW YOU UP AND SPIT YOU OUT BUT OH GOD WHAT A RIDE
YOU BETTER HANG ON FOR YOUR LIFE
OH GOD WHAT A RIDE SHE’S GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD TONIGHT
Track Name: Rebel Grows
SOMETHING’S THERE THAT YOU CAN’T SEE
PERHAPS IT’S JUST THE SHADOW OF YOURSELF
BIG AS LIFE BLOCKING OUT THE LIGHT
THE CHILD RETREATS THE REBEL GROWS
AND WHO’S TO SAY WHAT HELPS OR TURNS HIS HEART TO STONE
FETAL THERE AND ALL ALONE

OPEN YOUR HEART NOW FATHER THE DAMAGE IT’S IN THE EYES
GO TELL THAT BOY YOU LOVE HIM BEFORE HE TURNS AWAY FROM THE LIGHT

NO ONE MOVE OR HE’LL EXPLODE
TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT PUSH THE ENVELOPE
IT’S EASY TO GIVE UP HOPE
YOU’RE WAITING THERE TO BREAK HIS FALL
BUT NOT UNTIL HE KNOWS YOU KNOW HE’S RISKED IT ALL
ALL THE WAY TO THE WALL

OPEN YOUR HEART NOW FATHER THE DAMAGE IT’S IN THE EYES
GO TELL THAT BOY YOU LOVE HIM DON’T LET HIM SLIP AWAY WITHOUT A FIGHT
OPEN YOUR HEART NOW FATHER THE DAMAGE IT’S IN THE EYES
GO TELL THAT BOY YOU LOVE HIM BEFORE HE TURNS AWAY FROM THE LIGHT
Track Name: Malibu Road
THE CANDLE’S SLOWLY DWINDLING
THEN FROM ACROSS THE ROOM I SAW HER THERE
MY HEART JUST STARTED MENDING LYING TO MYSELF PRETENDING
YOU’RE HER NEXT UNHAPPY ENDING AS YOU TWO WALKED AWAY
SHE TOSSED HER HEAD AND WINKED AT ME BE CAREFUL BOY SHE CUTS JUST LIKE A KNIFE
I GUESS I SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU SHE’S THE DEVIL’S SOUL FOOD
SHE STEALS YOUR BREATH AWAY THROWS YOU DOWN WON’T LET YOU SPEAK
IN HER SPELL FAR TOO WEAK TO FIGHT SHE’S GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD TONIGHT
YOU’RE GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO OR SHE’LL EAT YOU UP ALIVE
YOUR GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO CAUSE WITHOUT A DOUBT
SHE’LL CHEW YOU UP AND SPIT YOU OUT BUT OH GOD WHAT A RIDE
SHE’S GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD TONIGHT
THERE’S NO WAY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR HAPLESS HEART WON’T BE THE SAME
THE SIREN SWEETLY SINGS AS YOU TAKE FLIGHT
YOU’RE GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO OR SHE’LL EAT YOU UP ALIVE
YOUR GONNA NEED A NEW MOJO CAUSE WITHOUT A DOUBT
SHE’LL CHEW YOU UP AND SPIT YOU OUT BUT OH GOD WHAT A RIDE
YOU BETTER HANG ON FOR YOUR LIFE
OH GOD WHAT A RIDE SHE’S GONNA ROCK YOUR WORLD TONIGHT
DAYLIGHT FALLS FILLING ALL THE CORNERS
AND MY LIFE SEEMS IT’S FALLING APART
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE ALL OF MY FRIENDS THEY TOLD ME
DAMN THE LIGHT THE RAGE IT COMES AND GOES
ON MALIBU ROAD MALIBU ROAD
A SMILE ON A SMILE BRINGING THE CREAM AND COFFEE
A MISCHIEVOUS CHILD TEASING A DARE
I NEVER KNEW HOW VERY MUCH I LOVED YOU
WITHOUT A WORD YOU WERE HERE AND NOW YOU’RE GONE
FROM MALIBU ROAD MALIBU ROAD
THERE’S A LESSON TO LEARN A PRECIOUS PRICE TO PAY
LOVE’S NOT FREE IT MUST BE EARNED EVERYDAY
NOW EVERYWHERE THAT I GO I’M SURE I HEAR YOUR LAUGHTER
AND WHEN I’M LOST IN A CROWD I SEARCH FOR YOUR FACE
AND IF I LISTEN REAL HARD I CAN ALMOST HEAR YOU SINGING
HOW CAN I LET YOU KNOW IT’S HERE THAT YOU BELONG
ON MALIBU ROAD MALIBU ROAD
Track Name: Gone Too Long
TWO KIDS BEHIND THE WALL
DREAMS OF THE FUTURE WE SAW IT ALL
THE FIRE AND OUR LUST FOR LIFE WAS STRONG
WE’VE BEEN GONE TOO LONG
THEY STOLE YOUR DREAMS A SLIGHT OF HAND
I DREW MY SEPARATE LINE IN THE SAND
FORGETTING THE MEASURE OF THE MAN
YOU’VE BEEN GONE TOO LONG
NOW WE’RE HERE LIKE MIRRORS IN LINE
REFLECTING FOREVER, SO STRONG
OUT OF THE SHADOWS A NEW PLACE IN TIME
FEELING NOW WHAT WE KNEW ALL ALONG
WE BELONG BABY WE BELONG
YEA NOW WE’RE HERE LIKE MIRROS IN LINE
REFLECTING FOREVER SO STRONG
OUT OF THE SHADOWS A NEW PLACE AND TIME
FEELING NOW WHAT WE KNEW ALL ALONG
WE BELONG YOU’VE BEEN GONE TOO LONG
YEA YOU’VE BEEN GONE TOO LONG
YOU’VE BEEN GONE TOO LONG
Track Name: One More Night
YOUR MEMORY RUNS THROUGH MY VEINS WE WERE EACH OTHER’S VERY FIRST LOVERS
I REMEMBER THE NIGHT US FIGHTING OUT IN THE RAIN
YOU SLAMMED THE DOOR AND IT WAS OVER
YOU CAN BELIEVE WHAT YOU NEED TO BELIEVE ABOUT ME
YOUR GIRLFRIENDS SAY YOU’RE DOING JUST FINE LIVIN’ WITHOUT ME
I GUESS WE BOTH GREW TIRED OF CALLING EACH OTHER SUCH TERRIBLE NAMES
YOU WERE SO SURE I WAS LOVIN’ ON SOME OTHER LADY
I WAS SURE YOU WERE GOING INSANE
BUT YOU KNOW HOW TIME HAS ITS’ OWN WAY OF MAKING THINGS CLEAR
AND IF THERE’S ONE THING I KNOW BABY IT’S CLEAR I NEED YOU HERE
JUST ONE MORE NIGHT THAT’S ALL I’M ASKING BABE
ONE MORE NIGHT TO TRY AND FIND LOVE WE THREW AWAY
I THINK I’VE LEARNED A WHOLE LOT OUT HERE ON MY OWN
AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO COME ON HOME
I KNEW THAT I LOVED YOU FROM THE WORDS YOU TOLD ME ON THE FIRST NIGHT WE MET
YOU SAID THAT PEOPLE SPEND A LIFETIME LOOKIN’ FOR LOVE
THEY CHASE IT DOWN JUST TO DESTROY IT
WE STARTED TAKIN’ FOR GRANTED THAT SWEET LOVE THAT WE HAD
I GUESS WE STOPPED TALKING, STOPPED LAUGHING REACHING FOR TENDERNESS
OH GOD I NEED YOU BAD
JUST ONE MORE NIGHT THAT’S ALL I’M ASKING BABE
ONE MORE NIGHT TO TRY AND FIND LOVE WE THREW AWAY
I THINK I’VE LEARNED A WHOLE LOT OUT HERE ON MY OWN
IT DRIVES ME CRAZY THINKING ‘BOUT YOU IN ANOTHER MAN’S ARMS
THERE’LL BE NO MORE EMPTY NIGHTS ALL ALONE
NOW IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO COME ON HOME
OOH COME ON HOME NOW BABY
OOH BABY WON’T YOU PLEASE COME ON HOME
Track Name: Someone Else
WE WERE YOUNG AND HEADED WEST CHASIN’ DREAMS LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE
MAKIN’ LOVE WHILE SHADOWS STRETCHED OUT FOREVER
THINGS WERE CLEAR SO EASY THEN NOW MY LIFE’S SO SHRILL I CAN’T HEAR THUNDER
BABY’S TOUCH GROWS COLD NOW I WONDER
IS THERE SOMEONE ELSE SOMEBODY NEW NOW A SHADOW FALLS BETWEEN ME AND YOU
CAUGHT A GLIMPSE OF THE PROMISED LAND BLIND AMBITION TURNED MY HEAD
YOU’D SMILE AT ME AND SAY YOU UNDERSTAND ‘CAUSE YOU LOVED ME
SOON THE CHASE CONSUMED MY SOUL YOUR TRAIL OF TEARS I BARELY NOTICED
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY YOU STOPPED HOPING
NOW THERE’S SOMEONE ELSE SOMEBODY NEW
HIS SHADOW IT STANDS BETWEEN ME AND YOU
EVERYNIGHT I SEARCH THE SKY AND CURSE THE GROUND EVERYNIGHT I PRAY
SOME PEOPLE CHANGE ONLY WHEN THEY LOSE IT ALL I PRAY IT’S NOT TOO LATE
WHERE TO GO JUST WHAT TO DO HOW TO EARN MY WAY BACK TO YOU
SO MANY LIES TOO MANY PROMISES BROKEN
LOOKIN’ FOR THE ONE YOU LOVED THE MAN I LOST WHEN I WAS YOUNGER
THERE’S COURAGE IN MY HEART STILL I WONDER
CAN I BE SOMEONE ELSE SOMEBODY NEW CAN I FIND THE MAN THAT YOU ONCE KNEW
SOMEONE ELSE SOMEBODY NEW
CAN WE FIND THE LOVE THAT WE ONCE KNEW THAT WE ONCE KNEW JUST ME AND YOU
PRAY FOR ME ‘CAUSE I’M COMING HOME
