Lyrics

Lay Your Hands on Me
05:59
If you're ready, I'm willing and able
Help me lay my cards out on the table
You're mine and I'm yours for the taking
Right now the rules we made are meant for breaking

What you get ain't always what you see
But satisfaction's guaranteed
They say what you give is always what you need
So if you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me
Lay your hands on me
Lay your hands on me

I'm a fighter, I'm a poet, I'm a preacher
I've been to school and baby, I've been the teacher
If you show me how to get up off the ground
I can show you how to fly and never ever come back down

Everything you want is what I need
Satisfaction's guaranteed
But the ride don't never ever come for free
If you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me
Lay your hands on me
Lay your hands on me

Don't you know I only aim to please
If you want me to lay my hands on you

Lay your hands on me
Lay your hands on me
Lay your hands on me
Bad Medicine
05:17
I ain't got a fever got a permanent disease
It'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy
I got lots of money but it isn't what I need
Gonna take more than a shot to get this poison out of me
I got all the symptoms count 'em 1, 2, 3

First I need
That's what you get for falling in love
Then you bleed
You get a little but it's never enough
On your knees
That's what you get for falling in love
And now this boy's addicted cause your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up, just like bad madicine
There ain't no doctor that can
Cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine
Bad, bad medicine

I don't need no needle
To be diving me a thrill
And I don't need no anesthesia
Or a nurse to bring a pill
I got a dirty down addition
It doesn't leave a track
I got a jone for your affection
Like a money on my back

There ain't no paramedic
Gonna save this heart attack

When you need
That's what you get for falling in love
Then you bleed
You get a little but it's never enough
On your knees
That's what you get for falling in love
Now I'm addicted and your kiss is the drug

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up, just like bad madicine
So let's play doctor, baby
Cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine
Bad, bad medicine

I need a respirator cause I'm running out of breath
You're an all night generator wrapped is stockings and a dress
When you find your medicine you take what you can get
Cause if there's something better baby well thay haven't found it yet

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up, just like bad madicine
There ain't no doctor that can
Cure my disease

Your love is like bad madicine
Bad medicine is what I need
Shake it up, just like bad madicine
Your love's the potion that
Can cure my disease

Bad, bad medicine
Bad, bad medicine
Born to Be My Baby
04:40
Rainy night and we worked all day
We both got jobs 'cause there's bills to play
We got something they can't take away
Our love, our lives

Close the door, leave the cold outside
I don't need nothing when I'm by your side
We got something that'll never die
Our dreams, our pride

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one (and it's alright)
And I'll never let go 'cause
There's something I know deep inside

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

Light a candle, blow the world away
Table for two on a TV tray
It ain't fancy, baby that's okey
Our time, our way

So hold me close, better hang on tight
Buckle up, baby, it's a bumpy ride
We're two kids hitching down the road of life
Our world, our flight

If we stand side by side (all night)
There's a chance we'll get by (and it's alright)
And I'll know that you'll live
In my heart till the day I die

'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

My heart beats like a drum (all night)
Flesh to flesh, one to one (and it's alright)
And I'll never let go 'cause
There's something I know deep inside

'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

You were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man
Living in Sin
04:39
I don't need no license
To sign on no line
And I don't need no preacher
To tell me you're mine
I don't need no diamonds
I don't need no new bride
I just need you, baby
To look me in the eye

I know they have a hard time
And your Daddy don't approve
But I don't need your Daddy
Telling us what we should do

Now there's a million questions
I could ask about our lives
But I only need one answer
To get me through the night

So I say baby can you tell me just where we fit in
I call it love they call it living in sin
Is it you and me or just this world we live in
We're living on love, they say we're living in sin

Is it right for both our parents
Who fight it out most nights
Then pray for God's forgivness
When they both turn out the lights
Or wear that ring of diamonds
When your heart is made of stone
You can talk but still say nothing
You stay together but alone

Or is it right to hold you
And kiss your lips goodnight
They say the promise is forever
If you sign it on the dotted line

Baby, can you tell me just where we fit in
I call it love they call it living in sin
Is it you and me or just this world we live in
We're living on love, they say we're living in sin

Baby, can you tell me just where we fit in
I call it love they call it living in sin
Is it you and me or just this world we live in
We're living on love or are we living in sin

I don't know where we fit in
Sometimes it scares me...

I don't know where to begin
I don't know where we fit in
Living in sin
Blood on Blood
06:17
I can still remember
When I was just a kid
When friends were friends forever
And what you said was what you did

Well, it was me and Danny and Bobby
We cut each other's hands
And held tight to a promise
Only brothers understand

But we were so young (so young)
One for all and all for one (for one)
Just as sure as the river's gonna run

Blood on blood
One on one
We'd still be standing
When all was said and done
Blood on blood
One on one
And I'll be here for you
Till Kingdom come
Blood on blood

Well, Bobby was our hero
Cause he hed a fake I.D.
I got busted stealing cigarettes
And he took the rap for me

Danny knew this white trash girl
We each threw in a ten
She took us to this cheap motel
And turned us into men

We were so young (so young)
One for all and all for one (for one)
Just as sure as the river's gonna run

Blood on blood
One on one
We'd still be standing
When all is said and done
Blood on blood
One on one
And I'll be here for you
Till Kingdom come
Blood on blood

Now Bobby, he's an uptown lawyer
Danny, he's a medicin man
And me, I'm just the singer
In a long haired rock'n'roll band

Through the years and miles between us
It's been a long and lonely ride
But if I got a call in the dead of the night
I'd be right by your side

Blood on blood, blood on blood

Blood on blood
One on one
We'd still be standing
When all is said and done
Blood on blood
One on one
And I'll be here for you
Till Kingdom come
Blood on blood

Blood on blood
Homebound Train
05:11
When I was just a boy
The devil took my hand
Took me from my home
He made me a man
So, don't talk to me about sympathy now
Cause you can't dance if you
Take a chance on your rosary

I'm going down, down, down, down, down
On the homebound train

It's been a millions years
That I been gone
I been everywhere, now I'm heading home
Been a lot of girls, but
There's a woman I know
Said don't take no plane
Better take a train
Cause I like it real slow

All the way back home
On the homebound train
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
On the homebound train

I'm on my way
I'm heading home
To be with my baby
Where I belong
Coming down the tracks now
See, I done my time
I'm going back now
To that home of mine
Well, here I come baby

Here I come baby
Here I come baby

All the way back home
On that homebound train
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
On that homebound train
Wild Is the Wind
05:09
I tried to make you happy
You know I tried so hard to be
What you hoped that I would be
I gave you what wanted
God couldn't give you what you need
You wanted more from me
Than I could ever be
You wanted heart and soul
But you didn't know, baby

Wild, wild is the wind
That takes me away from you
Cold is the night without your love
To see me through
Wild, wild is the wind
That blows through my heart

Wild is the wind,
Wild is the wind
You got to understand, baby
Wild is the wind

You need someone to hold you
Somebody to be there night and day
Someone to kiss your fears away
I just went on pretending
Too weak, too proud, too tough to say
I couldn't be the one
To make your dreams come true
That's why I had to run
Though I needed you, baby

Wild, wild is the wind
That takes me away from you
Cold is the night without your love
To see me through, baby
Wild, wild is the wind
That blows through my heart tonight
That tears us apart

Wild is the wind,
Wild is the wind
You got to understand, baby
Wild is the wind

Maybe a better man
Would live and die for you
Baby, a better man would
Never say goodbye to you

Wild, wild is the wind
That takes me away from you
Cold is the night without your love
To see me through, baby
Wild, wild is the wind
That blows through my heart tonight
That tears us apart

Wild is the wind,
Wild is the wind
You got to understand, baby
Wild is the wind
Ride Cowboy Ride
01:25
Ride cowboy ride.
Through the back door to heaven.
To the other side.
I wanna know the danger of a kiss.
At midnight.
Ride, cowboy, ride.
Yeah, I learn my lesson.
In the story of the trial.
So I made my confession.
In this cheaper motel.
Like could try me pleasant.
But ain't got the money.
'N ain't got the town.
Ride, cowboy, ride.
Through the back door to heaven to the other side.
I wanna know the danger of a kiss.
At midnight. Ride cowboy ride.
So you want to be a cowboy.
Ride cowboy, ride.
Baby, come on.
Ride, ride, ride.
Stick to Your Guns
04:45
So you want to be a cowboy
Well you know it's more that just a ride
Guess you got to know the real thing
If you want to know the other side
Ain't nobody riding shotgun
In this world tonight

And when you spit, you better mean it
You got to make 'em all believe it
If you're gonna be the one

Stick to your gun
Ain't nobody gonna hurt you, baby
You can go for the trigger
But only if you have to
Aim from the heart
Some will love and some will course you, baby
And you can go to war
But only if you have to
It's only if you have to

So you want to be the big time
Some people have to drag you down
There's no living in the backseat
If you're gonna drive through town
And when you pray for independence
Boy, you better stand your ground

You got to give it all you got now
Or you might get shot down
Fight hard until the battle is won

Stick to your gun
Ain't nobody gonna hurt you, baby
You can go for the trigger
But only if you have to
Aim from the heart
Some will love and some will course you, baby
And you can go to war
But only if you have to
But only if you have to

Well, you know that I been through it
I got the scars to prove it
Fight hard and the Battle is yours

Stick to your gun
Ain't nobody gonna hurt you, baby
You can go for the trigger
But only if you have to
Aim from the heart
Some will love and some will course you, baby
And you can go to war
But only if you have to
It's only if you have to

But stick to your guns
I'll Be There for You
05:47
I guess this time you're really leaving
I heard your suitcase say goodbye
And as my broken heart lies bleeding
You say true love in suicide

You say you're cried a thousand rivers
And now you're swimming for the shore
You left me drowning in my tears
And you won't save me anymore
Now I'm praying to God you'll give me one more chance, girl

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you
I'd live and I'd die for you
Steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what a love can do
I'll be there for you

I know you know we're had some good times
How they have their own hiding place
I can promise you tomorrow
But I can't buy back yesterday

And Baby you know my hands are dirty
But I wanted to be your valentine
I'll be the water when you get thirsty, baby
When you get drink, I'll be the wine

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you
I'd live and I'd die for you
Steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what a love can do
I'll be there for you

And I wan't there when you were happy
I wasn't there when you were down
I didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby
I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you
I'd live and I'd die for you
Steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what a love can do
I'll be there for you
99 in the Shade
04:30
I feel I'm burning up with fever
But the fire's feeling really good tonight
And it's alright
I'm gonna see Sahara Jack and Suntan Sally
Somebody tells me even Tommy's coming down tonight
If Gina says it's alright

I'm gonna see those Senoritas
Lying under the sun
They're greasing it up
With know I want to be their blanket
Gonna tell every girl
Hey, baby... You're the one...

Oh tell the boys I'm on my way
I got the radio blasting in my old man's Chevrolet
I got a party in my pocket cause you know I just got paid
And I'm feeling fine, it's 99 in the shade
I'm feeling fine, it's 99 in the shade

When the sun goes down that's when the street heats up
Senorita Margarita fills your empty cup tonight -
She make you feel alright

A good time here don't cost much money
Just a little sweet talking and a pretty native honey
And you're set for life
Or one hell of a nigth

I'm gonna see those sons of beaches
Out there living it up the surf
And the sand,
Man that life ain't so tough
So get me in the action so I can tell
Every girl she's the one

Oh tell the boys I'm on my way
I got the radio blasting in my old man's Chevrolet
I got a party in my pocket cause you know I just got paid
And I'm feeling fine, it's 99 in the shade
I'm feeling fine, it's 99 in the shade
Love for Sale
04:00
Well I wake up this morning I rolled out of bed
I felt like a dog who's been kicked in the head
Checked out my mail there was letter that read
Love for sale, love for sale

I picked up the phone I called everyone I could
I let my fingers do the walking through the telephone book
You can't catch a fish if you ain't got the hook
Love for sale, love for sale

Send up a signal throw me a line
Somebody explain "this funny Valentine"
It might not be signal but it sure ain't a crime
I'm one step from crazy and two steps behind

I called Lt. Columbo from my TV set
I've tried the Dating Game I haven't found her yet
I'm hoping that she's looking like a Penthouse Pet
Love for sale, love for sale

We've been living together 3 years,
2 hours, 20 minutes maybe four houndred beers
You can't shop for love when you're shopping at, Sears
Love for sale, love for sale

I guess I've learnt my lesson it was easy to see
My old lady she played this joke on me
I never looked where I forgot it would be
Love for sale, love for sale
