Fire on High

The Music is Reversable, but time is not.
Turn back, turn back, turn back...

Waterfall

So now it's getting late, for those who hesitate, got no one,
But they don't understand and no one hears the sound,
It's like a waterfall, it's an illusion.

Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair,
But you know as you hold back the power there without the friends
And lovers you could never go on living.

Across the waterfall that's falling evermore down on you,
Cascading through the days, and flowing on its way,
That's how it has to be, just an illusion.

Love is all, waterfall, love is what you are,
Pulls you in, takes you down, it's a sad affair,
But you know as you hold back the power there without the friends
And lovers you could never go on living.

Evil Woman

You made a fool of me, but them broken dreams have got to end.

Hey woman, you got the blues, cos' you ain't got no one else to use.
There's an open road that leads nowhere, so just make some miles between here and there.
There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in,
You took my body and played to win,
Ha Ha woman it's a crying shame,
But you ain't got no one else to blame.

E-evil Woman, E-evil Woman, E-evil Woman, Evil Woman...

Rolled in from another town,
Hit some gold too hot to settle down,
But a fool and his money soon go separate ways,
And you found a fool lyin' in a daze,
Ha Ha woman what you gonna do,
You destroyed all the virtues that the Lord gave you,
It's so good that you're feeling pain,
But you better get yourself on board the very next train.

E-evil Woman, E-evil Woman, E-evil Woman, Evil Woman...

Evil woman how you done me wrong,
But now you're tryin' to wail a different song,
Ha Ha funny how you broke me up, you made the wine now you drink the cup,
I came runnin' every time you cried,
Thought I saw love smilin' in your eyes,
Ha Ha very nice to know, that you ain't got no place left to go.

E-evil Woman, E-evil Woman, E-evil Woman, Evil Woman...

Nightrider

I remember somewhere in the rain, 
The faces of the passers-by, 
Staring faces broken blinds, 
I recall the situation clearly standing in a crowded car, 
I can feel the need in me. 
  
Hold on, nightrider baby, 
Hold on you're a nightrider, 
Riding the night, searching for what is gone, 
Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.

I still see that vision of delight, 
While cruising on the black of night, 
But she keeps a step ahead, 
Looking out the corner of her world, 
Nobody ever knows a girl, who once lived along this way. 
  
Hold on, nightrider baby, 
Hold on you're a nightrider, 
Riding the night, searching for what is gone, 
Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.

Desolation degradation row, 
Go on don't let the feeling show, 
She's a ten a penny dream, 
Faces with no name and no address, 
Keep staring in on my distress, but she kills me with her smile. 
  
Hold on, nightrider baby, 
Hold on you're a nightrider, 
Riding the night, searching for what is gone, 
Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.

Poker

Away, the jokers's closing in, 
Reform and they will win, 
The light is fading fast. 
I know, you know, they know, we all know, 
Everybody's gonna burn down. 

The girls come crawling on all fours, 
Banging on locked doors, 
High cards call the tune. 
I know, you know, they know, we all know, 
Everybody's gonna burn down. 

Play me another hand, 
Loose everything I am, 
Until we meet again. 

The ace, that's hiding up your sleeve, 
Will cause the world to grieve, 
The love you had is gone, 
I know you know, they know, we all know. 

The dream, in every player's heart, 
To win it all not part, 
They lie awake at night, 
I know, you know, they know, we all know. 

The game, where gamblers rule the night, 
And get your blood they might, 
The joker's closin' in, 
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

Strange Magic

You're sailing softly through the sun in a broken stone age 
dawn, you fly, so high, I get a 

Strange Magic, oh what a strange magic 
Oh it's a strange magic, got a strange magic, 
Got a strange magic.

You're walking meadows in my mind, 
Making waves across my time, 
Oh no, oh no, I get a 
  
Strange Magic, oh what a strange magic 
Oh it's a strange magic, got a strange magic, 
Got a strange magic.

Oh I'm never gonna be the same again. 
Now I've seen the way it's got to end, 
Sweet Dream, sweet dream 
  
Strange Magic, oh what a strange magic 
Oh it's a strange magic, got a strange magic, 
Got a strange magic.

Down Home Town

The world outside don't like us much, 
'Cos they ain't got our classy touch, 
But they ain't good enough to breathe, 
This towns good air we make 'em leave. 
  
But it's no, no, no, you really can't do that, 
No, no, no, down homw town.

No monkey business in this town, 
Well who do you think you're pushing round, 
This towns respectable and clean, 
Just look around you'll see what I mean. 
  
But it's no, no, no, you really can't do that, 
No, no, no, down homw town.

Down home town, down home town, etc. 
  
But it's no, no, no, you really can't do that, 
No, no, no, down homw town.

We got the best town band around, 
Just listen to their crazy sound. 
When they get hot they gonna blow, 
Ucedemwinnin every show. 
Down home town, down home town, etc. 
  
But it's no, no, no, you really can't do that, 
No, no, no, down homw town.

Look Out.

One Summer Dream

Deep waters flow, out to the sea,
They never needed you or me.
One Summer Dream, One Summer dream.

Blue Mountains high and valley low,
I don't know which way I should go,
One Summer Dream, One Summer dream.

Warm summer breeze blows endlessly,
Touching the hearts of those who feel,
One Summer Dream, One Summer dream.

Bird on wing goes floating by,
But there's a teardrop in his eye,
One Summer Dream, One Summer dream.
One Summer Dream, One Summer dream.
