ELECTRIC BOOGIE

She’s a mongrel pup,
She makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
She looks so sweet,
But the ground starts shaking when she walks down the street
She moves just like a tiger,
It’s like a back beat, street heat; burning-up inside her.

Electric Boogie, Electric Boogie,
She got to bop ’till she just can’t stop.
Electric Boogie, Electric Boogie,
Baby knows how to rock.
Baby knows how to rock.

She looks so cute,
She’s the girl in the skin-tight thunderbolt suit.
She’s a dancing diva
Got you down on your knees like a true believer,
She moves just like a tiger,
Some kind of back beat, street heat; burning up inside her.

Electric Boogie, Electric Boogie,
She got to bop ’till she just can’t stop.
Electric Boogie, Electric Boogie,
Baby knows how to rock.
Baby knows how to rock.

She got, she got, to bop.
My, my, my, baby knows how to rock.

RUNNING ON EMPTY

I’m driving in my car,
The windscreen wipers beating
To the rhythm of my heart.
I’ve got to get to you,
I never should have said those things,
It’s tearing me apart.

We had a fight, like lovers often do,
I guess I lost my head,
But now the needle’s leaning on the red.
And the world keeps flashing by,
Headlights cut into the night,
I gotta get to you to night.

I’m running on empty,
I’m running on empty,
Just running on an empty heart,
I need you now.

Just three more miles to go,
This long and lonely road I know,
Is gonna bring me back to you.
Those things I did and said
Keep running through my head
If I could turn back time you know I would.

I’m on my way, my foot down to the floor,
I hear the engine start to roar,
It’s drowning all the voices in my head.
Then just beyond the curve,
I lose control, I start to swerve,
Next thing I know I’m in this hospital bed.

And you, you’re standing next to me,
The tears you try to hide,
But I know I’m heading for that final ride.

I’m running on empty,
I’m running on empty,
Just running on an empty heart,
I need you now.

BACK TO THE START

I’m on my way, I’m on my way,
I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way

I woke up this morning to a brand new day,        
(I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way)
I’m moving like a slingshot ricochet,
(I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way)

I’m on my way to god knows where,
I’m picking it up on a wing & a prayer,
But all I see is trouble everywhere.

I caught the last train out of this town,
(I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way)
Goodbye babe, I guess I’ll see you around,
(I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way)

I’m on my way to a brand new city,
I’m leaving behind these small town blues,
You know I’ve got nothing left to lose.

I’m on my way to a new life,
I’m going back to the start.
And this time I’ll keep listening to my heart.

I just want to listen to the juke-box play,
(I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way)
If luck is a lady then I need her today,
(I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way)

Deal me a card from a brand new deck,
A deuce or an ace, well, it’s anybody’s guess.
But this time I’m not taking second best.

I’m on my way to a new life,
I’m going back to the start.
And this time I’ll keep listening to my heart.
And if all my bridges are burning,
Then I can see right in to the night,
And as the flames climb higher my future’s warm & bright.

OUT ON A LIMB

I’m standing on the street waiting for mad-dog Pete,
But I don’t think that he’s gonna show.
He’s the kind of guy that can look you in the eye,
Tell you what you don’t wanna know.
There’s rumour going round that a body’s been found,
The circumstances are hazy.
The cops are asking questions, I’m making no suggestions,
The whole scene is ready to blow.
Keeping this in mind I’m biding my time,
Just waiting for Pete to show.

Out on a limb, out on a limb,
Got to get a message out to razor-face Jim,
I’m out on a limb, out on a limb,
It’s gonna take a miracle to save my skin.

Annie’s in the basement with a pistol & a prayer
She’s keeping her eyes fixed on the door.
Too tired to run, but she’s glued to the gun,
She’s on the wrong side of the law.
I try to calm her down, I’m talking real slow,
The situation is crazy.
She says that Pete has turned up the heat,
And how could he sink so low.
Keeping this in mind we’re biding our time,
Waiting for Pete to show.

Out on a limb, out on a limb,
Got to get a message out to razor-face Jim,
I’m out on a limb, out on a limb,
It’s gonna take a miracle to save my skin.

Well, we were wondering what to do when the news came through,
That someone had to pick up the tab.
Razor-face Jim & automatic Slim
Were cut up in the back of a cab.
Annie broke down, the cops came around,
With all the guns & siren’s blazing.
I made it out the back door & into the street,
I guess it wasn’t such a surprise.
Cos the last thing I remember there was mad-dog Pete
With a crazy kinda look in his eyes.

Out on a limb, out on a limb,
Too late to get a message out to Razor-face Jim,
Out on a limb, out on a limb,
I’m looking for a preacher to confess my sins
‘Cos I’m out on a limb, out on a limb,
Somebody gotta notify my next of kin,
Out on a limb, out on a limb,
It’s gonna take fucking a miracle to save my skin.

BEAUTIFUL GIRL

It was a hot June night,
Baby you and I,
Standing ‘neath a cadillac moon.
Two hearts beating,
History repeating
To the rhythm of a rock & roll tune.

Just you and I together,
The two of us against the world.
Just like an angel, you fell into my world,
You’re such a beautiful girl.

With our hearts on fire,
We went under the wire
And out into the cold grey dawn.
We mixed our blood
With the heavens up above
And the powder from a unicorn horn.

You and I together,
Standing at the edge of the world.
Lost like a lion, I fell into your world,
You’re such a beautiful girl.

I knew the minute I saw you,
I could tell by the light in your eyes.
Nothing existed before you,  
You were the sunrise,
Yeah, you were the sunrise.

BLOOD RUNS BLACK

The radio is pumping out the same old rap,
The train’s not moving ‘cos there’s somethin’ on the track.
I feel like I’m stuck between a hard place & a rock
But there’s no stopping, gonna keep on rockin’

‘Til my blood runs black, my blood runs black,
The life I lead is giving me a heart attack.
So when my blood runs black, my blood runs black,
Bury these rockin’ bones.

My knees are shakin’, I can’t sit still,
I’m hyperventilatin’ as I write my will.
Another cup of coffee, another cigarette,
I’m gettin’ closer to the grave, but I’m not done yet.

Until my blood runs black, my blood runs black,
The life I lead is giving me a heart attack.
So when my blood runs black, my blood runs black,
Bury these rockin’ bones.

Way down in the ground, ground,
It’s so quiet not a sound, sound,
Down in the cold, cold, ground, ground,
I’m kickin’ up a riot
When you bury my rockin’ bones.

Here comes another body blow,
My temperature is risin’ it’s time for me to go.
I ain’t gonna hustle, I ain’t gonna fight;
I don’t even think I’m gonna make it through the night.

I watch my blood run black, my blood run black,
The life I lead is giving me a heart attack.
So when my blood runs black, my blood runs black,
Bury these rockin’ bones.

(Start digging)
Bury my rockin’,
Lay me in a coffin &
Bury these rockin’ bones.

DARK MOON RISING

Here comes another revolution in my head,
A strange kind of paradise where Angels fear to tread.
Scar tissue forms around the life I used to know,
I’ve got to move before the cracks begin to show.
Maybe I’m crazy; I don’t know,
A dark moon is rising.

No way to separate the truth from all the lies,
Darkness surrounds me but the light is in my eyes.
What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger every day,
So goodbye to everyone that’s standing in my way.
Maybe I’m crazy; I can’t say,
A dark moon is rising.

Newspapers, politicians, prophesying doom,
But I’m much too busy shooting arrows at the moon.
Dreams & illusions are reality to me,
The life I used to know is just a distant memory.

There’s no regrets, but there’s no future I can see,
Do what you like it doesn’t matter much to me.
I might ask forgiveness & redemption for my sins,
But this angel’s smile could be the devil’s wicked grin.
Maybe I’m crazy, I don’t know,
A dark moon is rising.

BAD BLOOD

Oh Lord please forgive me for I know what I do,
And I’m making no excuses for the things you put me through.
Flesh is such a fragile & a weak & tender thing,
The water’s deep and I just keep on drowning in my sin.

I listen to the Angels and I try to cross the line,
I dream of flying high above these cruel and senseless times.
But maybe there’s an answer in the blood the sweat & tears
And perhaps some day I’ll find it as I stumble through these years.

Bad Blood – running through my veins,
Bad Blood – I’ve got to break these shackles & chains.

Now maybe there’s a Heaven and maybe there’s a Hell,
If I exorcise my Demons, will my Angels leave as well?
Everytime I think I find a key to loose the chain,
At dead of night this parasite keeps burning up my brain.

Bad Blood – running through my veins,
Bad Blood – I’ve got to break these shackles & chains.

I’m looking for an answer,
I’m looking for a clue.
But if I can’t find the answer,
I’m coming back to you.
Yes I’m coming back to you.

Oh Lord I surrender, I’m giving up the fight,
I’m tired of feeling guilty, cos I know that can’t be right.
Lay me on the table, drain the bad blood from my arm,
Purify my body, keep my spirit free from harm.

So there’s no, Bad Blood – running through my veins,
So there’s no, Bad Blood – and I can break these shackles & chains.

Fast & Loose

Baby I’ve been trying to tighten up my act,
I guess there’s no denying, I need you and I want you back.
I try to play the same old game,
But when push comes to shove,
It’s just no use playing fast & loose with your love.

I used to go out drinking, I used to mess around,
But since I fell in love with you my feet don’t touch the ground.
You’re the missing piece,
You know you fit me like a glove,
It’s just no use playing fast & loose with your love

You’re a one man woman baby,
And I know I’ve got a roving eye.
My friends all say I’m crazy,
But without you I would die.
So if you give me one more chance,
And baby I know that you can,
I’m gonna stop my roving
I’m gonna be a one woman man.

I’ve learned my lesson darlin’, I’m keeping my love for you,
You’re gonna be the one for me, my rambling days are through.
I hear the Angels calling,
Like a message from above.
It’s just no use playing fast & loose with your love.

I know I used to play fast & loose,
But I wanna be a one woman man.

JUPITER DIAMOND

I got a Jupiter Diamond,
I’m keeping next to my heart.
My little Jupiter Diamond,
No one is ever gonna tear us apart.
No one is ever gonna tear us apart.

‘Cause I love you, I love you
Little Jupiter Diamond,
My Jupiter Diamond.

You keep on shining so brightly,
Even through the darkest of nights.
My little Jupiter Diamond,
I’m never gonna let you out of my sight.
I’m never gonna let you out of my sight.

‘Cause I love you, I love you
Little Jupiter Diamond,
My Jupiter Diamond.

Don’t know what’s on the horizon,
And I don’t know what’s up the bend.
My little Jupiter Diamond,
I know on you that I can always depend.
Now and forever baby, world without end.

And I love you, I love you
Little Jupiter Diamond,
My Jupiter Diamond.

Heart to heart, soul to soul
Alright, alright.
