well save ourselves a bottle


of california red
well drink it on a tuesday
let it go straight to our heads
and well eat from good china
and make love on linen sheets
just like theres no tomorrow
no surrender, no retreat
i can feel it in my bones
and i know it in my heart
tomorrow may be rainin but tonight we have the stars
we may always be together
or miles and miles apart
tomorrow may be rainin but tonight we have the stars
we were young and we were foolish
we were easy to deceive
said wed be in love forever
and it was easy to believe
well you and i we had our moments
our devils and our doubts
but the time we spend together
we gotta make it count
chorus
so lets hold on to this moment
cause its all weve really got

i like the way we are i love what weve become


when im in your arms i know ive found the one
i love your kiss me mouth and your static touch
its just the way you are that makes me feel so much

how come the best ones are always taken


what i see when i see ya is love in the makin
something about timin, something about fate
gotta go with the feeling not a moment too waste

my hands are shakin my heart skips a beat


i cant focus i cant speak
its like im underwater
and im going deep i need ya around me

no one could ever know what were like alone


rollin round like rain were a midnight storm
like a river rising i feel it thru your skin
when were together i never want it to end

bring it on bring it on ya i was born ready


im a son of a strong man im rock steady
everything you throw i can see it coming
aint gonna be no TKO just a lot of lovin

oxygen every moment


oxygen everyday
i cant live without it dont take it away
i need to breath you in like oxygen

i thought id seen everything til i saw you


i thought id been everywhere til id been with you
i thought that everyone knew what i knew
i thought id seen everything til i saw you

cuz opposites attract this way


if day is night and night is day
if loving you is wrong then babe wrong is right
and i aint losin the ght

losin cohesion im losin my mind


im tryin to resist it to stay out of the light
its like im drownin in the deepest sea
i need ya around me

i like the way we are like a raging re


burning up the night, burning with desire
youre such a sweet temptation you know i cant resist
electricity, every time we kiss

take it on, take it on, take it on no second guessing


dressin up a situation we should be undressing
hear the bell ringing seconds out round two
i got my eyes on the prize, and the prize is you

oxygen every moment


oxygen everyday
i cant live without it no dont take it away
i need to breath you in

we found our strength we found our way at last


we found tomorrow by building on our past
we paid our dues we stick together come whatever
were still standin didnt fall to pieces
never lost our reason never stopped believin
we found our wings and now we y above the wind
you and me - we found what were looking for
we gave it all gave our very best
with every fall we withstood the test
we broke the rules
had to do it to get thru it
we found our wings together we found everything
you and me we found what were looking for
you made me shine picked me up when i fell behind
with you i never need to search no more
were still standin didnt fall to pieces
never lost our reason never stopped believin
ah never stopped believin
we found our wings and together we found everything
you and me we found what were looking for
you made me shine picked me up when i fell behind
with you i never need to search no more
you and me we found what we were looking for

you always say the things i can believe in


always say the things i wanna hear
i believe them all the stories short and tall
i believe you, ya i believe you
you give me love
when love is all i need to live
you gave your word, when words were just superlative
when i was blind, you came and opened up my eyes
now i feel i can believe in anything
you taught me how to y on broken wings
you always do the things i can depend on
youre always there every night and day
everytime ive fallen down youve always been around
to lift me up again
to set me straight again
sometimes i nd myself on my own
and cant nd the road that leads me back home
but you made believe i can do anything
even y on broken wings

its funny what goes through your mind


when you think of times you spent together
funny but when i think back why we broke up
the reasons seem so small
one day shes with me everythings ne
sayin somethin sounded like i love you
the next week i see her walkin down the street
with someone else
probably sayin the same thing
its doin my brain in...

just when i thought i had it gured out


just when i thought i had the answers
you came along so full of promises
full of grace and second chances

i got nothin goin nowhere


tired of under achieving
i keep searchin nothins workin
its not enough just to be breathin
i need somethin to believe in

the world is full of mysteries


full of magic and of wonder
theres so much more than what we see
cant explain the spell im under
everytime i look upon your face
im constantly amazed
and love moves through my days
in mysterious ways

its funny what goes on in your head


when you think about the way things come together
but now i think back why things had to change
the reasons seem so small
cruel twist of fate keepin me awake
when i need to sleep to take away the hurtin
but now i got time on my hands tryin to understand
but there aint no explainin
its doin my brain in...

for awhile i tried to shut it out


for awhile i tried to ght it
but now i see that there just aint no use
there aint no reason to deny it
oh ya just never know, no you dont

they say the heart is shaped just like a st


holding in its feelings
i say the heart is like an open hand
holding out and healing
oh wherever you go dont ya know

she was the girl in the very front row


always waitin after the show
she was the queen of the hollywood hills
knew the stars, the bars, the pimps and pills
somebodys climbin on a greyhound tonight
too much lipstick and her dress real tight
looks like a woman but she aint quite
no, not quite
shes somebodys baby
shes somebodys mothers child
she may look like a lady
but shes just a ower grown wild
they never knew you by your childhood name
but they were drawn to you like moths to a ame
nobody saw the tears in your silk n lace
or the scarred little kid behind your face
just remember when you hold her tight
what youre holding in your arms tonight
shes no angel, but thats alright
ya thats alright
shes somebodys baby
shes somebodys mothers child
she may look like a lady
but shes a ower grown wild
just another little pretty thing
another angel with a broken wing
who fell to earth neath the hollywood hills
amid the stars and the bars, the pimps and pills
just like the girl on the movie screen
she played it up until the very last scene
the picture faded and the day was done
went home to nothin but a loaded gun
somebodys climbing on a greyhound tonight
a little angel yin out of sight
looks like a woman but she aint quite
no, not quite

shes got a way of getting inside your soul


shed breach the walls of jericho
make you fall like virgin snow
shes got a smile, makes you forget the things
you were only just thinking about
it kind of turns me inside out
and if i try to conceal, shes got a way to reveal
i feel so naked i feel so totally exposed
its such a mystery, how she seems to know,
every part of me
i feel so shaken and its like everybody knows
whenever she touches me, no one else can feel,
as much as me
ya shes got a way
shes got a way of taming the wild in me
with patience and serenity
im drowning in her revery
and i cant run away shes got a way to make me stay
she comes to me like rain falls down my window
sure as night will follow day ill surrender
ya shes got a way

i dont wanna be no soldier i dont wanna shoot no gun


i dont wanna drop no bomb i dont wanna hurt no one
i dont wanna fight no battles i dont wanna settle no score
i dont even understand what were fightin for
no it aint my war
thats the way of the world - thats what they tell me
thats the way of the world - they cant sell me
thats the way of the world - i cant explain it
thats the way of the world - but we can change it
were burnin up the ozone layer were walkin on a real thin wire
stirrin up a hurricane playin with the devils fire
we got a lot of dirty water we got a lot of dirty air
got skeletons in the closet but nobody looks in there
cuz theyre all scared
chorus

now youre standing at the station


got a ticket in your hand
guess you got youre mind made up
gotta get out while you can
dont say i never told ya
now the rest is up to you
those streets can be like a battleeld
when its hard to make it thru...
just walk on by walk on by
dont look over your shoulder
keep your head up high

i just wanna live in peace now with my guitar and my girl


raise a little family - thats way its supposed to be
thats the way of the world
thats the way of the world

like a message in a bottle


like a ship lost out at sea
i was sending out an SOS
that someone would rescue me

it was the hottest summer, i was seventeen


you were a little older, ya the best id ever seen
we were young and foolish, only out for laughs
didnt realise that time would fly so fast

i was slowly goin under - sinking like a stone


you reached out and showed me
that i wasn t all alone and i was saved

miss america, tell me where you are


cant believe Ive gone and lost you
just a photograph - just a memory to me ya
we were so misunderstood, thought we had it good
but just too young to know it
and now - i remember the way we were
miss america

i was saved - i was saved - baby i was saved


love threw out a line - oh i was saved
well you washed me in forgiveness
healed me with your touch
such a beautiful redemption
such a strong and simple love
well I know it wasn t Jesus
that taught me to believe
it was the power of your sweet love
that brought me to my knees
baby i was saved
chorus
like mohammed to the mountain
like a secret to the truth
i was searching for the answers
that i found inside of you
i was saved
i was saved - deep down in my soul - i was saved
i was saved - i was saved
love threw out a line - just in time
love threw out a line - and i was saved

I can hear your laughter, like it was yesterday


you would put your hair up,
Id take it down, I liked it that way
we stayed out late and counted stars
from the backseat of my car
you said its love, I said ok
didnt know what else to say
chorus
we traced our names out in the stars
ya the world was ours
Im ready, I am ready for
the way we were, way back before
we both grew up, and you left town
miss USA, where are you now?
i cant forget the way we were, it was good
miss america
