    Lyrics:

    1. Anger and lust/my senses running amok/bewildered and deluded/have I been hit by a truck?

    2. See the curtains hanging in the window/on an evening on a Friday night/A little light a-shinin’ in the window/Lets me know everything’s alright

    3. You’re no rock n roll fun/Like a party that’s over before it’s begun/You’re no walk in the park/More like a shot in the dark/with clues left for no one

    4. Women behind bars/Women in fast cars/Women in distress/Women in no dress

    5. He’s a cold-hearted snake/look into his eyes/oh-oh/he’s been tellin’ lies

    6. You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when I met you/I picked you out/I shook you up/and turned you around/Turned you into someone new

    7. Whenever I call you friend/I begin to think I understand/anything we are/you and I have always been/forever and ever

    8. We come from the land of the ice and snow/from the Midnight Sun where the hot springs blow

    9. See the way he walks down the street/watch the way he shuffles his feet/My, he holds his head up high when he goes walking by/He’s my guy

    10. I feel the night explode/When we’re together/emotion overload/in the heat of pleasure

    11. That old dog has chained you up all right/Give you everything you need to live inside a twisted cage/sleep beside an empty rage/I had a dream I was your hero

    12. Got brass in pocket/Got bottle, and I’m gonna use it/Intention, I feel inventive/I’m gonna make you, make you, make you notice

    13. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens/bring copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

    14. He came from somewhere in her long ago/sentimental fool don’t see/tryin’ hard to re-create/what had yet to be created once in her life

    15.Giant steps are what you take /Walking on the moon/I hope my leg don’t break/Walking on the moon

    16. Take my photo off the wall if it just won’t sing for you/Cause all that’s left has gone away/And there’s nothing there for you to prove

    17. Lyin’ in my bed again/And I cry ‘cause you’re not here/Cryin’ in my head again/And I know that it’s not clear

    18. Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moon dance/with the stars up above in your eyes

    19. Laughing so hard I got tears in my eyes/Walk in the park under sapphire skies

    20. Welcome to my Christmas song/I’d like to thank your for the year/So I’m sending you this Christmas card/To say it’s nice to have you here

    21. She grew up in an Indiana town/Had a good-lookin’ mama/who never was around/But she grew up tall/And she grew up right/with them Indiana boys/on them Indiana nights

    22. I feel you, Johanna/I feel you/Do they think that walls could hide you?

    23. It’s been a whole lot easier since the bitch left town/Been a whole lot happier without her face around

    24. Something in the way you love me won’t let me be/I don’t want to be your prisoner so baby won’t you set me free

    25. I don’t wanna know your name/’cause you don’t look the same/the way you did before

    26. You think you’re gonna take her away/With your money and your cocaine/You keep thinking that her mind is gonna change/But I know everything is okay

    27. This is just a little samba built upon a single note/Other notes are bound to follow, but the root is still that note/Now this new one is a consequence of the one we’ve just been through/As I’m bound to be the unavoidable consequence of you

    28. I give, but I don’t get/I will, but I won’t yet/I lose, but I don’t bet/I’m your dog, but not your pet

    29. I heard you crying loud/all the way across town/You’ve been searching for that someone/and it’s me out on the prowl

    30. Many times I’ve tried to tell you/Many times I’ve cried alone/Always I’m surprised how well you/cut my feelings to the bone

    31. Some people might like to get a train to work/or drive in a Beamer or a Merc

    32. I let go of the world that was holding/a passenger that could not fly/In search of souls in search of something/Let it go/Let it slide

    33. Lovin’ your smile/Lovin’ your style/Don’t you get it?/Got what I need/Gotta believe/I’m already yours

    34. Lovin’ you has got to be/Like the devil in the deep blue sea/Forget about your foolish pride/Take me to the other side

    35. Ooh my little pretty one, pretty one/When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?/Ooh, you make my motor run/my motor run/ Gun it comin’ off the line, Sharona

    36.Well, you’re dirty sweet/Clad in black, don’t look back/And I love you

    37 Heaven in your arms/Boy its’ the sweetest of your charms

    38. I’m the kind of girl that hangs with the guys/Like a fly on the wall/with my secret eyes

    39. Christmas bells are ringing/Somewhere else/Not here

    40. Awake. Shake dreams from your hair, my pretty child, my sweet one/Choose the day and choose the sign of your day

    41. Your eyes/As we said our goodbyes/ Can’t get them out of my mind/And I find I can’t hide

    42. When you hear me calling/You always come around/I never ask him for it/I know I will be found

    43. I met her in a club down in Old SoHo/Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry cola/C-O-L-A Cola

    44. When truckin’ down the road of life/Although all hope seems gone/I just move on

    45. I like my toast buttered/And I’ll take mine dry/I dig the Beatles/I’m a stones kind of guy

    46. She broke down and let me in/Made me see where I’ve been

    47. I’m asking everyone around me/How to live my life/I know the answers I keep hearing/But I listen close each time

    48. At night when you turn off the lights/There’s no place that you can hide/The rhythm is gonna get you

    49. New York City/Center of the Universe/Times are shitty/But I’m pretty sure they can’t get worse

    50. Oh what a night/Late December back in ‘63/What a very special time for me/As I remember/What a night
