01. Blinded By A Lie

Lyrics by Neil Carter, Phil Mogg
I got the information from a friend last night
And it looks so very different in black and white
I was "part of the second party", that was me
Signed away my life, really couldn't see

(1) Blinded by, blinded by a lie
Blinded by, blinded by a lie

I know it's just the price you pay
I know you're nothing

(1) Repeat

Now you listen closely, don't you go away
There's a cut of something, in what I have to say
You keep the full deck from me, "Mr. Percent"
Through the legal jungle, who's the one that's bent?

(1) Repeat

I know it's just the price you pay
I know you've nothin' to say
And oh boy every dog has it's day
I know you'll be the one to pay

[INSTRUMENTAL]

And now I see that I was

(1) Repeat and fade


02. Diesel In The Dust

Lyrics by Carter, Mogg
My daddy told me "Boy, you only shoot to kill"
I'm livin' just for that thrill
Nobody hurts me 'cos the payback's twice as bad
In this town you don't make a man mad

(1) Ted McKinley's dying
At the wheel of his truck
The engine running till it seized up
And nobody heard a thing
Not a shout or gun shot ring
Just a smell of diesel in the dust
(Diesel in the dust)

McKinley wouldn't back down from any man alive
But you need to if you're to survive
The folks in town wanna settle their score
By using their own kinda law

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

No one had seen a thing when the sheriff's car pulled in
Just the silence you get from kin to kin
The preacher bowed his head, glad that he was dead
And the better the least that was said

(1) Repeat

In this town there was a man out on his own
With no account of how he stood alone
Nobody hear a thing, not a shout or gun shot ring
Just the smell of diesel in the dust
Diesel in the dust


03. A Fool For Love

Lyrics by Carter, Mogg
She told me her story, hoped I would understand
And I listened closely, as anybody can
But there's a distant look that's in her eyes
And as the nights grow longer, alone in bed she cries

My baby met a man on her first date
He stole her heart an' sealed her fate
And she thought she'd found a friend for life
He wanted her but not to be a wife

(1) La la li, la la li
A fool for love never wonders why
La la li, la la li
She hangs on in but it's just another goodbye

(2) (Now) every day is like another day
She lets it all drift on away
An' every man is like another man
They come and go but she never can

And from sixteen to thirty-two
She lost her loves and her good looks too
It's so sad to see at first hand
From a teenage beauty to a one night stand

(1) Repeat

(2) Repeat twice

[INSTRUMENTAL]

(2) Repeat and fade


04. You And Me

Lyrics by Carter, Mogg
Baby you know that there's no choice
I'm tired of hearing my own voice
We can't live on love alone
To find some work I'll have to leave our home
And I know that things look desperate now
But stand by me we'll get through somehow

(1) Ooh when you touch me it all fades away
Ooh when you hold me I'll make it through another day

Winter's here and it's looking bleak
The snow is falling as we speak
And can we cut back a little more
Something will turn up I'm really sure
So please darlin' keep your faith in me
I'll make it good you wait and see

(1) Repeat

It's so special, oh so special
'Cos there's always you and me
And we stand alone with our love
So strong, bold and free
It's so special, oh so special
You can't take that away
There's a bond that holds us together
It'll always stay

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Though I'm getting stronger every day
Situations change, I hope and pray
I'm not a man who's afraid to fight
With you beside me I'll see the light
We'll be together, I'm sure it's meant to be
A friend and lover my only loyalty

If nothing else, it's you and me.


05. When It's Time To Rock

Lyrics by Chapman, Mogg
It's hot up in the west end, there's panic right downtown
As the gangs assemble, coming up from underground
Well Jesus I don't know which side I should be on
I'm a class contender if anything goes wrong

(1) When it's time to rock
We're the only ones
No one takes this block
'Cos we're number one

We sneaked through the no go, very late last night
Out up from the back streets, cruising for a fight
Well Jackie's got his six string, he can play behind his back
Mickey's out from Bellevue, he's just makin' tracks

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

As we rocked through the midnight, took 'em all by storm
The police boys didn't have a chance, didn't even get warm
Oh Daddy, why am I sittin' here,I'm not a member of the bar
I'm not the only wild one in a hot wired car

(1) Repeat


06. The Way The Wild Wind Blows

Lyrics by Carter, Chapman, Mogg
I heard from Frankie there's trouble at his place
On Highway 95 the police they gave me chase
I was with his sister I hadn't seen a thing
They had an APB just to bring me in

(1) Oh, I had Jenny by my side
Oh, she never told me that she'd lied

(2) If that's the way (that) our love goes
I'll take my chances with you I know
And we'll go the way the wild wind blows

I wasn't gonna stop they'd have to catch me first
And as I ran the red I heard the gunfire burst
Across three counties chasin' me for days
But Judge I didn't know that she was under age

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Well the judge he was generous and gave me a rest
Of eighteen months in the county's best
And I got a visit from Jenny yesterday
By the time I'm out everything will be OK

(1) Repeat

(2) Repeat

She gave me one look
You could see it in her eyes
And we'll go the way the wild wind blows

(3) And while I'm away dream of dreams
That what we had no one had seen
Because we go the way the wild wind blows

(3) Repeat and fade


07. Call My Name

Lyrics by Carter, Mogg
(1) I want you to call my name
I need to hear your voice again
You know I want you to call my name
Any time, there's no shame in our love

I met you watching the cars go by
You were there, every night, at the corner of Elm and Vine
And you had nothing to hide
For just a few bucks and you know it's a free ride

(1) Repeat

I picked you up for all the wrong reasons
You left home for Hollywood, where there's no break even
We had nothing to hide
You were just a few years on the wrong side

(1) Repeat

It's only love, I know, a real love
I know it's only love, and you showed me how
Gotta keep you now

[INSTRUMENTAL]

We had nothing to hide
You were just a few years on the wrong side

(1) Repeat

In our love...in our love...thre's no shame in our love...


08. All Over You

Lyrics by Carter, Mogg
Well you think you're the queen of Texas
Who you foolin now?
Giving off an air of innocence
You ain't no sweet little flower

I thought I'd seen some cheatin' done
That I'd sung 'bout in the blues
It wasn't til you met me baby
I got the bad bad news
An' it's

(1) All over you, yes it is
All over you
All over you, baby it's
All over you

Can you tell me what's the mystery
You try and hide away
Where's the money come to pay for that
Little adventure anyway

And you made all the right moves baby
You really turned a head
But when I was away from you
You were turning tricks instead
An' it's

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Well I bet your mama doesn't know
What her baby's into now
And you know how much she can cost
When you pay by the hour
And I guess that you can fool yourself
Oh you do most of the time
But in whose bed do you sleep tonight
Oh babe that's the bottom line
An' it's

(1) Repeat and fade


09. No Getaway

Lyrics by Carter, Chapman, Mogg
Baby , look across the street
I know that you're alone
I've been waiting out in the dark
That surrounds your home
'Cause after midnight I'll be calling
C'mon answer the phone

(1) And baby you know there's no getaway
I belong to you
I'll be calling every night and day
'Till you want me too

Baby I've seen every movie
That you've ever made
And now I'm waiting
I know all the parts
That you've ever played

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Oh baby do you read my letters
I'm so excited about you
But I'm still waiting
I've had no reply
What about our rendezvous?
'Cause after midnight
Ooh while you're sleeping
You know I'm looking for you

(1) Repeat


10. Push, It's Love

Lyrics by Carter, Mogg
I take you walking out tonight
I'm looking good for you
What you see is what you get
You won't need a cue
Come on girl give it all you've got
Don't just stand and stare
Love, love, love, love
Love me if you really dare

(1) And you know that I'll come
I'll do it anywhere
In and out and up and down
As long as we get there
Push, it's love, make it feel so good
Push, it's love, do it like you should

I can't stop when you're so hot
Oh really let it go
It's standing up or sitting down
Come on let me know
Make it to the music
Love it like you don't care
Down, down, down, down
Get it right down there

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

When I get to rollin' now
Watch this trouser snake
Oh my baby hang on in
Keep on till you shake
When you dance, dressed way low
I'll be at your feet
You know, know, know, know
You're good enough to eat

(1) Repeat


11. Everybody Knows

Lyrics by Chapman, Mogg
I got your number right off the wall
Bristol 285 wont you give me a call
Well i was 15 thought i was hot
I didn't know if you'd see me or not
And that night as we stepped out
We were hand in hand
But my friends all seemed to know you
I couldn't understand

That everybody knew, everybody knew, they knew your name
But nobody wants nobody wants to play your game

You seemed so shy so all alone-y
Without any hint of ever being phony
But then the little things that came to light
Like the strange hours you worked late at night
And as we laid in your bed that night
You made me feel like a king
Then as i looked into your eyes
I heard that telephone ring

And everybody knows, everybody knows, they know your name
But nobody wants, nobody wants, to play your game
Oh no, they don't want to know your game again

(instrumental)

And everybody knows, everybody knows, they know your name
Nobody wants, nobody wants, to play your game

And everybody knew, everybody knew, they knew your name
But nobody wants nobody wants to play your game

(instrumental to the end...)
