Tooth and Nail
I'm tired of all this cheap talk When you walk next to me They say I ain't good enough for you Why don't they come and tell me When they see us out in the night They can't wait to tear us apart Now I hear them saying lovin' you ain't right Well they'd better be ready 'cause honey I'll be there I will fight tooth and nail Count on me, I will not fail you I will fight tooth and nail They say I'm always breaking promises And I'm just fooling with you Then they try and come between the two of us Man, that's a bad thing to do I can say I had more than enough But I ain't gonna take it too hard I said hey, they want to play rough Well let's see who backs down when the trouble starts I will fight tooth and nail Count on me, I will not fail you I will fight tooth and nail Come on try me, I won't give in They take advantage, but they can't win I'll be your man, baby, wait and see Ain't nobody, nobody take your love from me I will fight tooth and nail I was wrong, I will not fail you I will fight tooth and nail I'll be your man, baby, wait and see Ain't nobody, nowhere take your love away from me I will fight tooth and nail Count on me, I will not fail you I will fight tooth and nail Right now, tooth and nail I am waiting for the fight Tooth and nail Right now, c'mon, tooth and nail Right now, tooth and nail C'mon, tooth and nail Ah fight Tooth and nail Right now, c'mon, tooth and nail C'mon, right now, tooth and nail That Was Yesterday
I thought I knew you well But all this time I could never tell I let you get away Haunts me every night and every day You were the only one The only friend that I counted on How could I watch you walk away Id give anything to have you here today But now I stand alone with my pride And dream that youre still by my side But that was yesterday I had the world in my hands But its not the end of my world Just a slight change of plans That was yesterday But today life goes on No more hiding in yesterday cause yesterdays gone Love, my love I gave it all Thought I saw the light When I heard you call Life that we both could share Has deserted me Left me in despair But now I stand alone with my pride Fighting back the tears I never let myself cry But that was yesterday Love was torn from my hands But its not the end of my world Just a little hard to understand That was yesterday But today life goes on You wont find me in yesterdays world Now yesterdays gone Goodbye yesterday Now its over and done Still I hope somewhere deep in your heart Yesterday will live on I Want to Know What Love Is
I gotta take a little time A little time to think things over I better read between the lines In case I need it when Im older Now this mountain I must climb Feels like a world upon my shoulders I through the clouds I see love shine It keeps me warm as life grows colder In my life theres been heartache and pain I dont know if I can face it again Cant stop now, Ive traveled so far To change this lonely life I wanna know what love is I want you to show me I wanna feel what love is I know you can show me Im gonna take a little time A little time to look around me Ive got nowhere left to hide It looks like love has finally found me In my life theres been heartache and pain I dont know if I can face it again I cant stop now, Ive traveled so far To change this lonely life I wanna know what love is I want you to show me I wanna feel what love is I know you can show me I wanna know what love is I want you to show me And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is And I know, I know you can show me Lets talk about love I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside I want you to show me, and Im feeling so much love I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide I know you can show me, yeah I wanna know what love is, lets talk about love I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too And I know and I know, I know you can show me Show me love is real, yeah I wanna know what love is... Growing up the Hard Way
He's got nothing to say, he's got no excuse He's just made that way, and he's gonna stay that way Like a dog on the loose in a firework display in a world of his own No, no, no, he won't back down or go running back home He's come a long way in life He's got a long way to go He don't even know, he don't care because He's growing up the hard way In and out of trouble every day Growing up the hard way Now no tellin' where you'll end up, boy And he's got nothing to say, like he's lost for the worlds, his mind is in a daze That's his way, it's just a little game he plays He's got nowhere to run while the city sleeps he wanders alone Cuttin' through the steel and the hearts of stone He's come a long way in life He's got a long way to go He don't even know, but he don't care because He's growing up the hard way In and out of trouble every day Growing up the hard way You'd better walk the straight and narrow Growing up the hard way In and out of trouble every day Growing up the hard way Never know what you're in for, boy He's come a long way in life He's got a long way to go He don't wanna know, and he don't care because He's growing up the hard way In and out of trouble every day He's growing up the hard way Yeah, and he's gonna stay that way You see, he's growing up the hard way Walk the straight and narrow yeah, maybe someday But still he's growing up the hard way It's just the way he's grown up Yeah, growing up the hard way There ain't no other way Growing up the hard way Reaction to Action
Alright It's hard getting through to me I'm truly elusive I got my own point of view I am the one of a kind And I tell you l'il girl I'm fascinated by you There's something about you That makes all the difference Like the night is to day Well I can get along without you But I know that within you You've got what I'm missing And I'll find a way To get reaction to action Hey, say the word that would thrill me Yeah, I need reaction to action Just one look that would kill me You got a way of drawing attention to you You know you stand out in a crowd But the way that you play With any man's affections Should never be allowed See I consider myself The one who will show you I'd go as far as to say Girl, I ain't leaving here without you But you better understand There's only one rule in this game we're gonna play And that's reaction to action Maybe like a word that would thrill me I need reaction to action One look that would kill me Give me reaction to action It's getting late I'd better make a definite move Reaction to action And after that baby, it's up to you I need reaction to action Just a word that would thrill me I need reaction to action You know what I'm talking about Give me some reaction to action You got a look, you got a way that'll kill me Reaction to action, reaction to action, action Baby, don't think about it, just react Reaction to action Reaction to action Reaction to action Reaction to action Reaction to action Reaction to action Stranger in My Own House
Boy, your luck is running out... she make me feel like a stranger...in my own house I come stumbling in at a quarter to three To the sound of my own dog growlin' at me I'm scared to move or turn on a light You've got me creepin' around in the dark Like a thief in the night I've got no excuse, I should have known I've got no place to live I never feel at home I walk into the kitchen to see what's there I'm tired and I'm hungry but the cupboard's bare I've been working all day and all night too I can't believe this is all I have to come back to I guess I'll take a look upstairs, in the danger zone I wonder what I'm doing here When I never feel at home I'm a stranger in my own house I've got the keys to the door But I'm still locked out I'm a stranger in my own house I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow this house down Can't be a stranger in my own house I see the do not disturb sign on my bedroom door What is this sheet and pillow laying on the floor I wore out my welcome I hear you loud and clear It's time to get a few things straight around here I've got no excuse, I should have known I've got a place to live but I never feel at home I'm just a stranger in my own house I've got the keys to the door But I'm still locked out Stranger in my own house I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow this house down Can't be a stranger in my own house I've got no excuse, I should have known With a woman like you I'm better off alone I'm a stranger in my own house I've got the keys to the door But I'm still locked out I'm just a stranger in my own house Oh, honey I'm home I'm just a stranger in my own house I'm just a stranger in my own house You got a lion on your hands girl, not a mouse! I'm just a stranger in my own house I'm just a stranger in my own house Well, somebody's got to go... Stranger Stranger Love in Vain
Long night, too long and lonely Laying there asking myself Hey, what's going on with you and me How could I be so unaware So blind I could not see Knowing you'd be there And always would be Is anyone to blame but me I've been so concerned with myself Now I need you desperately If you've fallen for another Let's be honest with each other Is there still a chance And maybe hope to save our romance We can't be strangers You mean too much to me I won't let this be a love in vain Don't want the loneliness Of just a memory I don't want a love in vain Just one more night, I want to spend with you We'll let our hearts do the talking Like we used to do We'll make our first kiss last forever Put the pieces back together 'Cause there's still a chance There may be hope to save our romance We can't be strangers You mean to much to me I won't let this be a love in vain, don't want a love in vain I don't want the loneliness Of just a memory Don't want a love in vain Oh, woman look what you've done to me I'll show you how this love should be Don't let it be a love in vain Please don't, don't you know You got my heart on a string Don't let go Don't let this love be a love in vain We can't be strangers It's not our destiny I won't let this be a love in vain, don't want a love in vain Don't want the loneliness Of just a memory Don't let this be a love in vain Down on Love
Some people stay all alone and hide They don't even want to know the reason why They've given up on finding someone new But new love comes, it's gonna come for you When true love comes, it's gonna comfort you Now you say you've got a broken heart You oughta know this side of love can leave you torn apart Dry your eyes 'cause your heart's gonna mend And maybe tonight you'll fall in love again Yeah, maybe tonight you'l fall in love again But I know, I know that you're down on love But you're wrong, so wrong To be down on love Now love seems so far away Your skies are so cloudy And the tears come like fallin' rain Face up to it and don't pretend And maybe tonight you'll fall in love again Yeah, maybe tonight you'll fall in love again Just once in a life you'll realize When love takes two, only one heart cries But you're wrong, so wrong to be down on love You know you're not the only one See I've been down on love In matters of the heart You better know before you start You can't get down on love So always be prepared To be alone and a little scared But never down on love You see you can't stay down forever, girl Down on love Come on, now Don't get down on love This ain't right baby, no Down on love Don't you go through life livin' down on love Down on love Don't you go through life livin' down on love Down on love Don't you go through life down on love Down on love Down on love Two Different Worlds
