Woman of the Night

(Box Kerslake Lawton)

Ride along lady woman of the night
Looking for a place to go
Dancing on storm clouds
Hiding from the light
Looking for an easy Joe
You just wanna play around
Searching for a higher ground

Walking every side street
Kicking up the leaves
Running from the pouring rain
Standing on the corners
Shaking from the cold
Only got yourself to blame
You just wanna play around
Searching for a higher ground

Someone who could
Make you happy
Someone who would care
You've broken your life
Beyond repair
You're reaching for every rainbow
You're wondering why
Don't reach out for love
'Cause it's a lie

You've got your number on the wall
Of some deserted station hall
Is this your only claim to fame
Will you just play your waiting game
But you won't stop the things you do
Some night the evil get to you

Falling in Love

(Hensley)

Falling keep on falling
Keep on falling love

Now I don't mind
All this running around
Seems I've been doing it
Most of my life
My music's been kind
But some days I find
It brings me two kinds of trouble
And three kinds of strife

So don't try to compare it
'Cause I just want to
Share it with some people
I like to call friends
There ain't nothing bad and
No need to feel sad
And there's certainly no need
To make amends

It won't do you no harm and
There's no cause for alarm
I won't be praying for
Help from above
If the only thing
Wrong with rock and roll
Is that I keep on falling in love

If the only thing
Wrong with rock and roll
Is that I keep on falling
Keep on falling
Keep on falling in love

One More Night

(Hensley)

City lights are
Burning in the distance
Seems they're tellin' me
To hurry home
But I can't push these
Wheels of mine no harder
So hold on baby for
One more night alone

There's time for me to take just
One look over my shoulder
One last glance at
What's been going on
'Cause I'll be there at
First light in the morning
We'll pick up the pieces
And baby, then we'll be long gone

Pick up the pieces and run with me
As fast as you can
You know you always said
I was the man
Pick up the pieces, let's do it now
Let's say our last farewell
Tomorrow may be too late
As far as I can tell

Put Your Lovin' on Me

(Lawton)

Lady oh lady you're
Driving me crazy
You brought out the devil in me
You turned on my fire
With words of desire
You sure put the lovin'
Sure put the lovin' on me

You're sending me reeling
With love that you're giving
Spinning my poor heart around
The feelings that should be
Have finally saved me
You sure put the lovin'
Sure put the lovin' on me

Ain't no use in trying
I never would deny that
I love you love you
Ain't no doubt about it
I just can't live without it
I love you love you
Yes I love you, I really love you

Don't know what it is
That you're putting down
I only know it ain't no game
I only know what you're doing to me
And baby you're the one to blame

Lady oh lady you're
Driving me crazy
You're flying me high
With your eyes
There's no use in trying
Ain't no use denying
You sure put the lovin'
Sure put the lovin' on me
Yes, you did
Sure put your lovin'
Sure put your lovin' on me

Put your lovin', put your lovin' on me

Come Back to Me

(Hensley Kerslake)

Alone again, I feel so alone again
With this emptiness I just can't hide
Picture me with a broken heart
See the tears run down my face

Everything I had has gone
Everything is gone
Loneliness still lingering on
Everything I thought was mine
Come back to me
Can't we try it one more time
Come back to me

I know I'll find another love in time
But you'll always be there
In the back of my mind
The power of love
Can bring such pain
I still love you, I just love you

Alone again, I'm so alone again
With nothing but you on my mind
Can't you see
What you've done to my life
What can I do to
Win you back again

Whad 'ya Say

(Hensley)

Whad'ya say...

Lady you're tyin' me down
Turning my heart to stone
And I can't help feeling
I'd be better off
Back out in the streets alone

Baby you're hurtin' me
Deserting me again
I looked for your loyalty
And found a fickle friend

We could try to get back
On the right track baby
Or leave it, just throw it away
We could pick it up, pack it up
Make up or break up
Let's try it again

Faced with this situation
There's two things we can do
A lot of it is up to us
But most of it's down to you
You know we
Shouldn't play with love
It's a dangerous thing to do
So let's not get agony
And ecstasy confused

Save It

(Bolder McDonald)

Save it, save it, save it all for me...

Save it, save it
You've gotta save it all for me

Gonna take my heart and my soul
And lay it onto someone's daughter
Gonna give out all that I got
To the woman who sits by the water

Gonna spend the rest of my time
With the woman by the winding river
Gonna let her know
That I'll give her all
That I got forever and ever

She knows what I like
She knows what I need
And babe let me tell you
She'll give it all to me

Love or Nothing

(Hensley)

You gotta make up your mind
'Cause you're running out of time
You know it's your game
And the winner takes all
It's time for you to realise
There's gonna be no compromise
It's gotta be love or nothing at all

It's gotta be love or nothing at all

I've thought about a new beginning
But you know your heart's not in it
There's something inside
That ain't hearing my call
And each new misty morning
Brings a constant warning
It's gotta be love or nothing at all

It's gotta be love

You give me your love
Or nothing at all
You give me your love

It's no good climbing
In the back seat
In the name of love
Or tryin' to be somebody
That you know you're not
Sneakin' out the back door
At the dead of night
'Cause you're never gonna find out
What it's really like

I'm Alive

(Lawton)

How strange when
You know the feeling
That something ain't right
You're fooled by the need of being
You're blind to the light
Don't ask where
The stranger leads you
He'll show you the way
Just go out and make your conquest
You've something to say

I'm alive, I'm alive and I'm me
I've just got to be free
I'm alive to the world

There's been so much
Bad time wasted
Just look and you'll see
We've got so much going for us
It's not just a dream
Let's look and we'll find the answers
To questions I've made
We'll reach out for new beginnings
Let love show the way

Let's leave our past behind
The love can make us blind
But now we know
That we're alive

Fallen Angel

(Hensley)

Fallen angel ...

Everyone I see reminds me of you
I keep turnin' round
Expectin' you to be there
I keep seein' our past
Through my looking glass
But fallen angel
Where are you now

After all these years
I remember the tears
When we parted you said
Don't forget me
You were ridin' so high
Now they're passin' you by
Girl I've never forgot you
Please come and get me

Livin' without you is
Hard enough anyway
But knowin' you're hurtin'
Makes it so much worse every day

I just wanna love you
Any way that I can
And watching you cry wasn't
Part of my plan

Tell me how did it feel
In your promised land
That you chose as
Your pain and your pleasure
A temporary sanctuary
Oh fallen angel
I'm your real treasure

Cheater

(Hensley)

Cheater, I know where you've been
Cheater, your lies
Can't hide your sin
Cheater, don't ask me how I know
Cheater, I guess it's time for you to go

I'm tired of chasing shadows
So lllusive in the night
And your empty words
That leave me high and dry
Now the curtain's finally fallen
On this fantasy affair
You've had me for the last time
With your lies

Cheater, you're a cheater
I know where you've been
Cheater, your lies
Can't hide your sin
Cheater, don't ask me how I know
Cheater, I guess it's time for you to go

The voices in the wind I heard
Kept telling me to run
Whispering a warning to my heart
And the voices deep as thunder
Tried to speak of things to come
I was blinded then
But now I see the light

Cheater, you're a cheater
And I know where you've been
Cheater, mean mistreater
Your lies can't hide your sin
Cheater, don't ask me how I know
Cheater, I guess it's time
For you to go

Gimme Love (Struttin')

(Bolder Box Kerslake Lawton)

Love, love, love
I'm looking for love
Love, love, love

When I was only sixteen
Well, give it take a year or more
I've got to singing about
The life I've lead
And I threw it right out of the door

I've got to get some of
That heavy jive
That the old folks are talkin' about
So I strutted my stuff
To the local club
To see what I was leaving now

Looking for love, love, love
Looking, looking for love
Love, love, love

I took my seat at
The foot of the stage
And waited for the fun to begin
And there in the light
Stood this heavy chick
With the cutest babe
That I've ever seen

She smiled at me
She did her dance
Took me by surprise
The way she wiggled her hips
And she shook that ...
Right between the eyes

After the show she came
And sat down
Said: Hi son, what's your name?
I said: Never mind that
Think about this:
Loving's the name of my game

She said: That's alright
But it'll cost you, son
I said: Tell me what's
The price of the day
She said: Twenty dime
And a wedding ring
And everything will be O.K.

A Right to Live

(Lawton)

I must thank Lord
In my hour of need
I've given way to a better man
But I ain't been free
To push the hour here
In this soul of mine
I've burned my bridges
And I'm satisfied

The preacher's due here
In an hour or so
To give me reasons for
The things I know
I might have been careless and I
I might have been blind
If I'm the guilty, I'm satisfied

Oh woman, why did you
Do me wrong?
Sending me down and
I just can't get along
When daybreak comes and
I've reached the end of the line
I have a right to live
And I'm left to die

It all seems so hazy now
It seems so long ago
She hid the things she'd done
Or things I should know
What was I to do for
The hurting here inside
I kill for love but the ...

I have a right to live
When I'm left to die
Oh, woman
I have a right to live ...

Been Hurt

(Hensley)

Whoah, don't you know
I've been hurt
Oh yeah, don't you know
I've been hurt
Oh babe, you know
You're doin' me wrong, yeah

At the age of eighteen
I had had enough
And by twenty one
I decided to get tough
And then I found the guard
Was still too rough

Oh yeah, I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To try your love

Well, I tried to love you
One day at a time
Each day waitin'
Hopin' for the sign
It was clear I needed luck
More than this time

My empty heart is
Countin' all the ways
Fire and desire
Sat and count the days
Will you, won't you
When and where
Do you, don't you, do I care
That same eternal question
Is always there
It's always there
