Lyrics

Still of the Night
06:37
In the still of the night
I hear the wolf howl, honey
Sniffing around your door
In the still of the night
I feel my heart beating heavy
Telling me I gotta have more

In the shadow of night
I see the full moon rise
Telling me what's in store
My heart start aching
My body start a shaking
And I can't take no more

Now I just wanna get close to you
And taste your love so sweet
And I just wanna make love to you
Feel your body heat

In the still of the night
In the still of the night
Over here baby

In the heat of the day
I hang my head down low
And hide my face from the sun
Through the light of the day
Until the evening time
I'm waiting for the night to come

In the still of the night
In the cool moonlight
I feel heart is aching
In the still of the night

I can't keep away
Need to be closer
I can't keep away
Bad Boys
04:07
I know you, you know me
I'm the black sheep of the family,
I'm in an' out of trouble
I'm the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down
I steal around, like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city

I see you, you see me
Just a black street boy in society
With high-heeled women full of champagne an' lies,
Getting wild in the street
'Til the hot sunrise
Stealing round like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city

I know you, you know me
I'm the black sheep of the family,
I'm in an' out of trouble
I'm the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down

I don't care what the people think,
I can't hear what the people say,
I steal around like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Bad, bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city

Undercover of moonlight...
Give Me All Your Love
03:32
When I first saw you baby
You took my breath away,
I knew your name was Trouble
But, my heart got in the way
I couldn't stop myself from reaching out,
I could not turn away

I don't even know your name
An' I can't leave you alone,
I'm running round in circles
Like a dog without a bone
I know the game you're playing

But, baby I just can't let go

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want
Just give me all of your loving tonight

I'll work hard everyday
To love and treat you right.
I'll rock you in the morning
And roll you in the night.
Any way you want
I'm gonna prove my love for you.

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight, tonight, tonight...

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight

I am blinded by your smile
And I'm crazy about your walk
I shiver and I shake
When I hear you baby talk
I'm a fool for your loving babe,
Give me all your loving tonight...

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight

Anything you want from me...

So give me all your love tonight,
Give me all your love tonight
I'll do anything you want,
Just give me all of your loving tonight, tonight, tonight...
Looking for Love
06:33
I'm tired of waiting
An' closing my eyes
I'm asking myself
Why is it all my horizons
Are so far away

I look in the mirror
Don't like what I see
In my reflection
A stranger is staring at me
Looking for love

The love of a woman
The needs of a man
I try so hard to belive
But I don't understand
The search goes on

But over the mountains
Across the sea
I know love is waiting
I hear it calling to me
Calling my name

I'm looking for love all around me
Looking for love to surround me
The love that I need
To rescue the state of my heart

Alone again, It's always the same
I've just been marking my time
Since the day I was born
With no one to blame

The candle is burning
It's way down low
I just need someone
To show me the way to go
Which way to go.

I'm looking for love all around me
Looking for love to surround me
The love that I need
To rescue the state of my heart

I'm looking for love
An' finding only heartache
Looking for love
An' finding only heartache
I'm looking for love to rely on
Looking for love, a shoulder to cry on
I'm looking for love
To rescue the state of my heart...
Crying in the Rain
05:38
Also available on:
A black cat moans
When he's burning with a fever
A stray dog howls
When he's lonely in the night
A woman goes crazy
With the thoughts of retribution
But a man starts weeping
When he's sick and tired of life

I keep on dreaming
Dreams of tomorrow
Feel I'm wasting my time
Lighting candles in the wind
Always taking my chances
On the promise of the future
But a heart full of sorrow
Paints a lonely tapestry

The sun is shining
Ooh, but it's raining in my heart
No one understands the heartache
No one feels the pain
No one ever sees the tears
When you're cryin' in the rain
When you're cryin' in the rain

I can never deny
All the sweet things I've tasted
Though I've been mistreated
I keep coming back for more, more, more
I know where I'm going
There's no hope of absolution
I can't seem to separate
The good times from the bad

The sun is shining
Ooh baby, it's still raining in my heart
No one understands the heartache
No one feels the pain
No one ever sees the tears
When you're cryin' in the rain
When you're cryin' in the rain

The sun is shining
But, it's raining in my heart
No one understands the heartache
No one feels the pain
No one ever sees the tears
When you're cryin' in the rain
When you're cryin' in the rain
Is This Love
04:43
I should have known better than to let you go alone
It's times like these I can't make it on my own
Wasted days and sleepless nights
And I can't wait to see you again

I find I spend my time waiting on your call
How can I tell you babe, back's against the wall
I need you by my side to tell me it's alright
'Cause I don't think I can take anymore

Is this love that I'm feeling?
Is this the love that I've been searching for?
Is this love or am I dreaming?
This must be love 'cause it's really got a hold on me
A hold on me

I can't stop the feeling, I've been this way before
But with you I've found the key to open any door
I can feel my love for you growing stronger day by day
And I can't wait to see you again
So I can hold you in my arms

Is this love that I'm feeling?
Is this the love that I've been searching for?
Is this love or am I dreaming?
This must be love 'cause it's really got a hold on me
A hold on me

Is this love that I'm feeling?
Is this the love that I've been searching for?
Is this love or am I dreaming?
Is this the love that I've been searching for?

Is this love or am I dreaming?
Is this the love that I've been searching for?
Is this love or am I dreaming?
Is this the love that I've been searching for?
Straight for the Heart
03:39
I'm coming round to see you,
Kicking down your door
I've got to tell you girl
I really can't take no more
'Cos I've been hearing about you
Everybody says you're front page news
Laying it down, all around the town
Giving all the boys the blues

Stand and deliver in the name of love,
I'm coming after you,
I'll tell you want I'm gonna do

I'm going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane

I never loved a woman
The way that I love you
I can't escape the feeling,
You don't know what you're putting me through

So stand and deliver in the name of love
My heart is in your hand,
So try to understand

Straight for the heart

I'm going straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane

You got the love I dream of
The kind that cost so much,
Just cover me with kisses, baby
Surrender to my touch

Stand and deliver in the name of love
My heart is in your hand,
So try to understand
I'm coming after you,
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do

I'm going straight for the heart
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart
I'm gonna drive you insane

Straight for the heart,
Gonna drive you crazy
Going straight for the heart,
I'm gonna drive you insane

Straight for the heart...
Don't Turn Away
05:10
You say your dreams are burned to ashes
And your smiles have turned to tears,
It seems to me you welcome sanest
As you surrender to your fears

So what's a man like me supposed to do
When all I want is just to make love to you

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night,
Before the night is gone

You say your heart is lost forever
And you're always gonna give your love in vain
So you paint yourself a lonely portrait
And hide your love away again

You turn away from what you feel inside,
You can't forget all your foolish pride

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night is gone

So now I'm asking you this question
Am I gonna give you all my love in vain
Do you wanna drown in your own sorrow
Or are you gonna try to love again

Don't turn away from what you feel inside,
You should try to forget about all your foolish pride

Don't turn away, before the night is over
Don't turn away, before the night is gone
Don't turn away, the night may hold the answer
So don't turn away, before the night,
Before the night,
Before the night is gone

Don't turn away from me baby,
No, no, no, no.
Don't put me away,
Don't walk away from me darling
I need your love,
Oh baby,
I need your love to rescue me,
An' I'm coming for you, baby...
Children of the Night
04:24
I'm getting ready
I'm in the mood to fool around
It's time for action
Now the boys are back in town

So turn up the music,
Make it loud and proud
Let's see reaction
Let the spotlight hit the crowd

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night

You got the power,
I feel your fire in my soul
You got the fever,
'Cos you were born to rock an' roll
Don't run for cover,
I'm gonna show you what I've learned
Just come a little closer,
Come on an' get your fingers burned

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher.

Now are you ready to rock,
Are you ready to roll,
Are you ready to rock...

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night

I'm getting ready,
I'm in the mood to fool around
It's time for action,
'Cos now the boys are back in town

Don't hide what you feel inside,
Don't let anybody stand in your way,
Just let the music take you higher.

Now are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night

Are you ready to rock,
Children of the night
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night

Are you ready to rock,
Are you ready to roll,
Children of the night

Just let the music take you higher...
Here I Go Again
04:35
Also available on:
I don't know where I'm going, but I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises in the songs of yesterday
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time
Here I go again, here I go again

Though I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

I'm just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity
And I'm gonna hold on for the rest of my days
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But here I go again, here I go again
Here I go again, here I go

'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone
You're Gonna Break My Heart Again
04:11
Now I know
I've seen that look
On your face before
When you realised
All the memories
Walked right out the door...

Now it's eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
No more hiding behind the truth
I'm gonna get exactly
What's coming to me

You're gonna break my heart again,
You never let me forget it
You're gonna break my heart again
But, you're gonna live to regret it

Now you say
I took advantage of you
When you never knew the score
But, you should know
We've been this way
One thousand times before

You told me once,
You told me twice
It's down to me, girl
To pay the price
But, this time's the last time
That's for sure...

You're gonna break my heart again,
You never let me forget it
You're gonna break my heart again
But, you're gonna live to regret it
Yes you are

You talk of how our love
Was meant to be
And all the time
You sacrificed for me...

So how could I forget it,
Why should I regret it
'Cos when you told me you loved me
I knew it was lies
So no more crying, no more goodbyes,
'Cos this time's the last time
That's for sure... break my heart...

Now you say
There is no one in the world
Can get the better of you
An' you should know
'Cos you never made it easy
With the pain you put me thru

I told you once
I told you twice
It's down to you, girl
To pay the price
'Cos this time's the last time
That's for sure...

You're gonna break my heart again,
You never let me forget it
You're gonna break my heart again
But, you're gonna live to regret it

I just can't take anymore,
No more, no more, no more...
