Side One
 

1. I Can't Live A Dream

The day that you moved away, life was so empty.
All I had left was your memory.
Living, it seems, what was left was a dream.
A dream of the way it used to be.

But I can't live a dream, any more than I could live forever, any more than I could
climb a mountain to the sun.
No, I can't live a dream, any more than I could move a mountain, any more than I
could live my life without you.
Can't live, no I can't live.
No I can't live, no, no.

All of the things I've done, leaving me lonely.
All of the nights missing you only.
Why spend my time with one thing on my mind?
Just closing my eyes, dreaming of you.

But I can't live a dream, any more than I could live forever, any more than I could
climb a mountain to the sun.
I can't live a dream, any more than I could live forever any more than I could
climb a mountain to the sun.
No, I can't live a dream, any more than I could move a mountain.

2. Back On The Road Again

Back on the road again, seems like I've always been.
Back on the road again, singing my song again.

Travellin' is all I've known. Anywhere is my home.
Livin' the life I live is giving me life to live.

Love and laughter, pain and tears.
All those people, all those years.

Faces that never end, loving to see a friend.
They seem to know me well, just like I'm there to sell.

Love and laughter, pain and tears.
All those people, all those years.

I'm back on the road again.

Back on the road again.

3. Boogie Down

Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Get down!)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Boogie!)

Come on, get on your feet, just for the round, boogie down.
Do what you wanna do, and let the music carry on, all night long.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Get down!)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Boogie!)

Come on you dancin' baby, get out there and dance with all your might, woah,
yeah. Gotta get that get down feelin', gonna keep on keepin' on all night long,
we'll be on.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Get down!)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Boogie!)

Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Get down!)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down, boogie down.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, boogie down. (Boogie!)

4. Gotta Get Love

Gotta get love, love, love back into my life.
Gotta get you, you, you back into my life.
I keep hopin', I keep waitin',
I keep lookin', but I can't find love.

Gotta get hurt and hate out of my life.
Gotta find a way to lure you into my life.
Gotta be some way, gotta be some time,
somehow, but I gotta get love.

Oooo, rising water... drowning in my tears, oh so many tears.
Oooo, rising water... heavy chains of sorrow, draggin' on tomorrow.
Oooo, rising water... loneliness is mine, buyin' up my time. Oooo, rising water...

Gotta get love, love, love back into my life.
Gotta get you, you, you back into my life.
I keep hopin', I keep waitin',
I keep lookin', but I gotta find love.

5. Walkin' In The Jungle

Walkin' in a jungle, jungle full of tigers.
Livin' in a jungle, a jungle full of liars.
What was once a city, everyone so willing.
Now it's full of tigers, waiting for the killing.
Can I get by? Will I survive in the middle of a jungle?

I put in other people I never thought of shunning.
Now I get the feeling that I should be a-running.
A half a million tigers to live within the city, to see us in the jungle isn't very
pretty. Can I get by? Will I survive in the middle of the jungle?

Can I get by? Will I survive walkin' in the middle of a jungle?
Walkin' in the middle of a jungle

Side Two

1. At The Rainbow's End

Rain outside my window, when I want to walk through the park.
All the time, I want the sunshine. Sure enough, I'm alone in the dark.
Guess whatever I choose, never win, I was born to lose.

But at the rainbow's end, that's where I've never been.
And though I always try, I can't fly away.
At the rainbow's end, you can begin again.
It's where your dreams will never die.

Lady luck, where are you, and when are you gonna be staying with me?
Let me realize the feeling of having just one good memory.
'Cause right now, all I can recall is that I have nothing at all.

But at the rainbow's end, that's where I've never been.
And though I always try, I can't fly away.
At the rainbow's end, you can begin again.
It's where your dreams will never die.

At the rainbow's end, that's where I've never been.
And though I always try, I can't fly away.
At the rainbow's end, you can begin again.
It's where your dreams will never die, oh...

2. Learnin' How To Love Again

I remember not too long ago I was travellin' down in the street.
Looking for a place that I could hang my hat, and a place that I could rest my feet.
I know that I'm in trouble just being alone.

Got the bad days on the run, because I'm learnin' how to love again.
And now I'm walkin' in the sunshine, I'm learnin' how to love again.
I'll leave the past behind me, 'cause I'm learnin' how to love again.
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah.

Life is up but it can keep you down if there's no one there to ease your mind.
I got my feet firmly on the ground, and my soul is searchin' and reachin' for the
sky. I know that I'm in trouble just being alone.

I got the bad days on the run, because I'm learnin' how to love again.
And now I'm walkin' in the sunshine, I'm learnin' how to love again.
I'll leave the past behind me, 'cause I'm learnin' how to love again.
Yeah, yeah, oh yeah.

The bad days on the run, because I'm learnin' how to love again.
And now I'm walkin' in the sunshine, I'm learnin' how to love again.
The bad days on the run.

3. It'll Be Me

Who's gonna shoe your pretty feet, who's gonna hold your hand?
Who's gonna take you out tonight to listen to the band?
Who'll be the one you love to love, who's gonna be your beau?
Who's gonna show you out tonight, and take you to the show?

It'll be me, babe, it'll be me.
Comin' for thee, babe, comin' for thee.
Is there any doubt just who I'm talkin' about?
It'll be me, babe, it'll be me.

Who's gonna meet you in the morn, and court you through the day?
Who's gonna pick you up at eight to rock the night away?

It'll be me, babe, it'll be me.
Comin' for thee, babe, comin' for thee.
Is there any doubt just who I'm talkin' about?
It'll be me, babe, it'll be me.

It'll be me, babe, it'll be me.
Comin' for thee, babe, comin' for thee.
Is there any doubt just who I'm talkin' about?
It'll be me, babe, it'll be me.

4. Check It Out

There's a girl down on the corner, check it out.
There's a girl walkin' down the street.
There's a girl, she's fine and pretty, check it out.
She's the girl I gotta meet.

Check it out, check it out, yeah.
Check it out, check it out.

There's a girl, oh, is she lonely?
I'm a guy who's lonely too.
There's a girl, she looks so sweet,
I know what I gotta do.

Check it out, check it out, yeah.
Check it out, check it out.

There's a girl down on the corner, check it out.
There's a girl walkin' down the street.
There's a girl she's fine and pretty, check it out.
She's the girl I gotta meet.

Check it out, check it out, yeah.
Check it out, check it out.

5. Medicine Man

Hey, man, quick as you can call up the medicine man.
Hey, son, put down your gun, no time to be on the run.
Who'll be right and who'll be wrong?
And who'll be left to see tomorrow after we are gone?

Hey there, better beware, alot of smoke in the air.
So son, put down your gun before you lose what you are.
Who'll be right and who'll be wrong?
And who'll be left to see tomorrow after we are gone?

This legend of today, was he our hero yesterday?
The children cry, for tomorrow will they live on after we are gone?
Will they live on after we are gone?
Will they live on after we are gone?
