Lyrics

As Good as New
03:25
I'll never know
why I had to go
why I had to put up
such a lousy, rotten show
boy, I was tough
packin' all my stuff
sayin' I don't need you
anymore I've had enough
and now look at me
standing here again
'cause I found out that
ma - ma -
my life is here
gotta have you near

As good as new
my love for you
and keepin' it that
way is my intention
as good as new
and growin' too
yes, I think it's
takin' on a new dimension
it's as good as new
my love for you
just like it used
to be and even better
as good as new
thank god, it's true
darling, we were
always meant to stay together

Feel like a creep
never felt so cheap
never had a notion
that my love could be so deep
how could I make
such a dumb mistake
now I know I'm
not entitled to another break
but please, baby
I beg you to forgive
'cause I found out that
ma - ma -
my life is here
gotta have you near

As good as new
my love for you
and keepin' it that
way is my intention
as good as new
and growin' too
yes, I think it's
takin' on a new dimension
it's as good as new
my love for you
just like it used
to be and even better
as good as new
thank god, it's true
darling, we were
always meant to stay together

I thought that our love
was at an end
but here I am again

As good as new
my love for you
and keepin' it that
way is my intention
as good as new
and growin' too
yes, I think it's
takin' on a new dimension
it's as good as new
my love for you
just like it used
to be and even better
as good as new
thank god, it's true
darling, we were
always meant to stay together

Yes the love I have for you
feels as good as new
darling, we were
always meant to stay together
Voulez-Vous
05:09
People everywhere
a sense of expectation
hangin' in the air
givin' out a spark
across the room your eyes
are glowin' in the dark
and here we go again
we know the start
we know the end
masters of the scene
we've done it all before
and now we're back
to get some more
you know what I mean

Voulez-vous
take it now or leave it
now is all we get
nothing promised,
no regrets
voulez-vous
ain't no big decision
you know what to do
la question
c'est voulez-vous
voulez-vous

I know what you think
the girl means business
so I'll offer her a drink -
lookin' mighty proud
I see you leave your table
pushin' through the crowd
I'm really glad you came
you know the rules
you know the game
master of the scene
we've done it all before
and now we're back
to get some more
you know what I mean

Voulez-vous
take it now or leave it
now is all we get
nothing promised,
no regrets
voulez-vous
ain't no big decision
you know what to do
la question
c'est voulez-vous

And here we go again
we know the start
we know the end
masters of the scene
we've done it all before
and now we're back
to get some more
you know what I mean

Voulez-vous
take it now or leave it
now is all we get
nothing promised,
no regrets
voulez-vous
ain't no big decision
you know what to do
la question
c'est voulez-vous
voulez-vous
I Have a Dream
04:46
I have a dream
a song to sing
to help me cope
with anything
if you see the wonder
of a fairy tale
you can take the future
even if you fail
I believe in angels
something good in
everything I see
I believe in angels
when I know the time
is right for me
I'll cross the stream
I have a dream

I have a dream
a fantasy
to help me through
reality
and my destination
makes it worth the while
pushing through the darkness
still another mile
I believe in angels
something good in
everything I see
I believe in angels
when I know the time
is right for me
I'll cross the stream
I have a dream
Angeleyes
04:23
Last night I was taking
a walk along the river
and I saw him
together with a young girl
and the look that he gave her
made me shiver
'cause he always used to
look at me that way
and I thought
maybe I should walk
right up to her and say
it's a game he likes to play

Look into his angeleyes
one look and you're hypnotized
he'll take your heart
and you must pay the price
look into his angeleyes
you'll think you're in paradise
and one day you'll find out
he wears a disguise
don't look too deep
into those angeleyes
oh no no no no

Sometimes when I'm lonely
I sit and think about him
and it hurts to remember
all the good times
when I thought I
could never live without him
and I wonder
does it have to be the same
every time
when I see him
will it bring back all the pain
how can I forget that name

Look into his angeleyes
one look and you're hypnotized
he'll take your heart
and you must pay the price
look into his angeleyes
you'll think you're in paradise
and one day you'll find out
he wears a disguise
don't look too deep
into those angeleyes

Crazy 'bout his angeleyes
angeleyes
he took my heart
and now I pay the price
look into his angeleyes
you'll think you're in paradise
and one day you'll find out
he wears a disguise
don't look too deep
into those angeleyes
oh no no no no

(Keep thinking
keep thinking 'bout his angeleyes
keep thinking
keep thinking I had to pay the price)
The King Has Lost His Crown
03:34
I believe
your new girl turned you down
and they say
she's pushin' you around
how does it feel
I guess it hurts your pride
tell me my friend
how many nights you've cried

Disaster and disgrace
the king has lost his crown
suddenly
he's clumsy like a clown
the world is upside down
the king has lost his crown

Was it hard
to step down from your throne
and to know
tonight you're all alone
oh what a shame
you really want that girl
she doesn't care
still you just dream of her

Disaster and disgrace
the king has lost his crown
suddenly
he's clumsy like a clown
the world is upside down
the king has lost his crown

Disaster and disgrace
the word is all around
suddenly
he's clumsy like a clown
the world is upside down
the king has lost his crown
Does Your Mother Know
03:16
You're so hot, teasing me
so you're blue
but I can't take a chance
on a chick like you
it's something I couldn't do
there's that look in your eyes
I can read in your face
that your feelings
are driving you wild
ah, but girl you're only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
if you think it's funny
but does your mother know
that you're out
and I can chat with you baby
flirt a little maybe
but does your mother know
that you're out
take it easy
better slow down girl
that's no way to go
does your mother know
take it easy
try to cool it girl
take it nice and slow
does your mother know

I can see what you want
but you seem pretty young
to be searching for that kind of fun
so maybe I'm not the one
now you're so cute
I like your style
and I know what you mean
when you give me
a flash of that smile
but girl you're only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
if you think it's funny
but does your mother know
that you're out
and I can chat with you baby
flirt a little maybe
but does your mother know
that you're out
take it easy
better slow down girl
that's no way to go
does your mother know
take it easy
try to cool it girl
take it nice and slow
does your mother know
If It Wasn't for the Night
05:11
I got appointments
work I have to do
keepin' me so busy
all the day through
they're the things that keep me
from thinkin' of you
oh baby, I miss you so
I know I'm never gonna make it
oh, I'm so restless
I don't care what I say
and I lose my temper
ten times a day
still it's even worse when
the night's on its way
it's bad
oh, so bad

Somehow I'd be doin' alright
if it wasn't for the nights
I'd have courage left to fight
if it wasn't for the nights
how I fear the time
when shadows start to fall
sittin' here alone
and starin' at the wall
even I could see a light
if it wasn't for the nights
somehow I'd be doin' alright
if it wasn't for the nights

No one to turn to
you know how it is
I was not prepared for
something like this
now I see them clearly
the things that I miss
oh baby, I feel so bad
I know I'm never gonna make it
I got my business
to help me through the day
people I must write to
bills I must pay
but everything's so different
when night's on its way
it's bad
oh, so bad

Somehow I'd be doin' alright
if it wasn't for the nights
I'd have courage left to fight
if it wasn't for the nights
how I fear the time
when shadows start to fall
sittin' here alone
and starin' at the wall
even I could see a light
if it wasn't for the nights
guess my future would look bright
if it wasn't for the nights
Chiquitita
05:27
Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
you're enchained by
your own sorrow
in your eyes
there is no hope for tomorrow
how I hate to see you like this
there is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're
oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
your best friend
I'm the one you must rely on
you were always sure of yourself
now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can
patch it up together

Chiquitita
you and I know
how the heartaches
come and they go
and the scars they're leavin'
you'll be dancin' once again
and the pain will end
you will have no time for grievin'
Chiquitita
you and I cry
but the sun is still in the sky
and shining above you
let me hear you sing once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita
try once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita

So the walls came tumblin' down
and your love's a blown out candle
all is gone and it seems
too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
there is no way you can deny it
I see that you're
oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita
you and I know
how the heartaches
come and they go
and the scars they're leavin'
you'll be dancin' once again
and the pain will end
you will have no time for grievin'
Chiquitita
you and I cry
but the sun is still in the sky
and shining above you
let me hear you sing once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita
try once more
like you did before
sing a new song
Chiquitita

Kisses of Fire
03:21
Lay your head on my chest
so you hear
every beat of my heart
now there's nothing at all
that can keep us apart
touch my lips
close your eyes
and see with your fingertips
things that you do
and you know
I'm crazy 'bout you

Kisses of fire
burning burning
I'm at the point of
no returning
kisses of fire
sweet devotions
caught in a landslide
of emotions
I've had my share
of love affairs
and they were nothing
compared to this
I'm riding higher
than the sky
and there is fire
in every kiss
kisses of fire
kisses of fire

When you sleep by my side
I feel safe
and I know I belong
still it's making me scared
that my love is so strong
losing you
it's a nightmare, babe,
and to me it's new
never before
did you see me
begging for more

Kisses of fire
burning burning
I'm at the point of
no returning
kisses of fire
sweet devotions
caught in a landslide
of emotions
I've had my share
of love affairs
and they were nothing
compared to this
I'm riding higher
than the sky
and there is fire
in every kiss
kisses of fire
kisses of fire
