    1. Angel With A Dirty Face

      I was standing there, watching her
      While she would shoot arrows at my heart
      And I know there's no stopping now
      She's out to get me and boy she knows how

      Like a landslide, all power going down
      She took the ground out from under my feet
      I knew this girl would get me right here
      Where happiness and heartache meet

      I'm givin' you a heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      Yeah, now I don't want to run this race
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Angel with a dirty face

      I let it go, at full speed
      When in love it seems
      You're invincible at heart
      Everyday I got deeper in it
      I was a victim right from the start
      I didn't know, the minute she was sure
      Her poison arrow had hit the bull's eye
      She turned and said my dreams are out of line
      And stayed around to watch them die
      Watch them die

      I'm givin' you a heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      Yeah, now I don't want to run this race
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Angel with a dirty face

      oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

      What you've been getting isn't always what you see
      Love has many faces now, but in your dreams of dreams
      You do believe in holding on, you got to let it go

      I had enough, I stepped back
      There's only so much that a man like me can take
      This heart of mine is a fragile thing
      Once it's in pieces there's nothing to break

      Now she's cryin', she's cryin' over me
      She still can't get it thru her beautiful head
      That pretty smile may fool somebody else
      I'll tell you baby, all I see is red

      I'm givin' you a heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      Yeah, now I don't want to run this race
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face

      She'll be gone in the morning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She'll be leaving you without a trace
      Heartbreak warning, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Angel with a dirty face

      She's an angel with a dirty face
      Angel with a dirty face, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    2. Just Between You And Me

      Staring at each other with accusing eyes
      Keep our voices low and don't act surprised
      If the word gets out, yeah, that's all right
      I know you're just looking for some sympathy
      But listen, you don't know how it gets back to me
      You're getting reckless, girl, but that's all right

      Now don't you know that one cold word's gonna lead to another
      Then we'll have nowhere to go

      Even if heaven and earth collide tonight
      We'll be all alone in a different light
      I don't care what the world can't see
      It's just between you and me
      You and me

      I see telltale signs of a love in decline
      Should be something to say but we don't take the time
      And I don't understand, but that's all right
      Now you can turn the page or you can tear me apart
      Don't make an open book out of my private heart
      You should know better now, but that's all right

      Don't you know that one cold word's gonna lead to another
      Then we'll have nowhere to go

      Even if heaven and earth collide tonight
      We'll be all alone in a different light
      Now, I don't care what the world can't see
      It's just between you and me
      I said it's just between you and me

      If we don't work this out, we won't recover
      We'll lose this soulful love for one another
      But with all I've heard and all I've seen
      I'm still lost in your mystery

      Again we're staring at each other with accusing eyes
      Keep our voices low, don't act surprised
      If the word gets out, yeah, that's all right

      And don't you know that one cold word's gonna lead to another
      And then we'll have nowhere to go

      Even if heaven and earth collide tonight
      We'll be all alone in a different light
      Now, I don't care what the world can't see
      It's just between you and me

      Even if heaven and earth collide tonight
      We'll be all alone in a different light
      Now, I don't care what the world can't see
      When it's just between you and me
      It's just between you and me
      You and me

      Heaven and earth
      I don't understand
      Ooh, you're getting reckless, girl
      All alone
      One cold, cold word
      Could lead to another
      Heaven and earth
      All alone, all alone
      Heaven and earth, oooh

    3. Broken Dreams

      Still no news from you
      And I walk through the night alone, stay away from home
      I watch the midnight sky
      And wonder why is the moon so cruel, shining on this fool
      I've let heaven walk away, I need to feel you in my arms again
      I was king for just one day, that's long enough to know, I can't let go

      Now I climb this mountain high
      It won't stop my heart from burnin'
      Dreams for sale, tears and rivers running dry
      It won't keep the world from turnin'
      Oh, broken dreams for sale

      I still can feel the heat, running through me with speed of light
      I need you here tonight
      Memories come and go, let me love you just once again
      I didn't know better then
      There's a corner in your heart, a hideaway not even I can see
      I grow weaker in the dark, I'm strong enough to know, I can't let go

      Now I climb this mountain high
      It won't stop my heart from burning
      Dreams for sale, tears and rivers running dry

    4. True Blue Love

    5. I'll Come Running

      All alone in a sleepless night, hearing voices in the dark
      I can feel every move you make, the beating of your heart
      Anything that you want from me, anywhere that you are, I will be
      Any time that you call out my name, I will know, I will know, I will know

      If you need me, I'll come running
      If you want me, I'll come running now
      If you love me, I will run, run, run, run, run, run right away

      I'll reach out and end the storm that tears your world apart
      And I'll reach in and break the chain of pain around your heart
      Now I know how it feels to be lost and found
      Won't let nobody, nothing tear you down
      Just think of me, I'll be around
      Be around, be around, be around

      And if you need me, I'll come running
      If you want me, I'll come running now
      If you love me, I will run, run, run, run, run, run right away

      If you need me, I'll come running
      If you want me, I'll come running now
      If you love me, I will run, run, run, run, run, right away

      Like a knight, out of sight, like a shadow in the night
      I'll come running right away
      I'll keep on runnin', baby
      And I'll come running right away, yeahhhh

      Kingdoms rise, kingdoms fall, our love will conquer all
      Either way now, right or wrong, love goes on, love goes on, love goes on
      If you need me, I'll come running
      If you want me, I'm running now
      And if love me, I will run, run, run, run, run, right away

      If you need me I'll come running now
      If you want me I'll come running now
      If you need me here I come

    6. Hangin'On My Hip

      I take big dreams to extremes, nothing's gonna stand in my way
      Now I'm a live wire, and I'll take it higher, don't tell me what to do or say
      Not today, tomorrow, the pain and the sorrow
      I'm living with it day to day

      Don't even think about it now, it doesn't matter anyhow
      You know I'm gonna do it anyway, hey!
      I got it hangin' on my hip, I got it hangin' on my hip
      And I'll make you believe, my heart ain't pinned to my sleeve
      Hangin' on my hip

      You better face facts, no turning back
      You won't find me waitin' in the wings
      I'll take a heavy hand, to a better plan
      And I'll be right here when the bell rings

      I said, today, tomorrow, the pain and the sorrow
      You know that it's sad but true
      Yeah well, if they had a heart, I'd be tearing it apart
      Ya see I can put together two and two, hey!

      I got it hangin' on my hip, you wanna see it?
      It's hangin' on my hip, hangin' on my hip
      I got it hangin' on my hip

      Hangin' on my hip
      Ah, look out! I got it hangin' on my hip
      You wanna see it? It's hangin' on my hip
      Look at it

      I got it hangin' on my hip, hangin' on my hip
      I got it hangin' on my hip,
      I got it hangin' on my hip,
      I said it's hangin' on my hip

      Hangin' on my hip, hangin' on my hip
      Yeah, yeah, yeah!

    7. Warmest Rising Sun

      The way she moves alone, so late at night
      This woman knows, she's a mystery and she's mine tonight
      That's all I want to know

      Now what would I do without her? Who would I be, alone?
      You see I love everything about her, and I'd never, ever let her go
      The wind blows cold tonight, and I'm counting stars one by one
      Holding her so close tonight, and I know she'll always be my warmest rising sun

      Now I'm searching out her secret dreams
      I wonder if she knows what her love means
      Now what would I do without her? Tell me who would I be, alone?
      You see I love everything about her, and I'd never, ever let her go

      The wind blows cold tonight, and I'm counting stars one by one
      Holding her so close tonight, she is my warmest rising sun (warmest rising sun)
      Now the wind blows cold tonight and I'm counting stars one by one
      Holding her so close tonight and I know she'll be my warmest rising sun

      Now I'll never, ever let her go
      The wind blows cold tonight and I'm counting stars (one by one) one by one
      Holding her so close tonight

      She is the warmest rising sun (warmest rising sun)
      Now the wind blows cold tonight
      And we're counting stars (one by one)one by one

      And I'll hold her close tonight
      I know she'll always be my warmest rising sun
      (warmest rising sun)
      (warmest rising sun)
      (warmest rising sun)
      (warmest rising sun)

    8. Day One

      Hang on alone without you
      Hang on enough to do what must be done
      One bridge to cross and one to burn
      I'll tell you I won't hide and I won't run,
      This is Day One

      I hear the drums on the battlefield,
      Calling up my courage and my pride
      I can't explain the way I feel
      But my heart of hearts won't be denied
      Even in the darkest hours, I know my time will come,
      This is Day One (Day One, day one, day one)

      Day One
      You don't know about me, I'll give you a look inside my heart
      Don't walk away without me, because you know I've loved you from the start
      Even in the darkest hours, I know our time will come,
      This is Day One (Day One, day one, day one)
      This is Day One

      I had to watch from the shadows
      While the light of your star filled the sky
      It's what I live for, it's what I fight for
      Girl, I loved you so, from Day One

      (Day one, day one, day one)

      I won't hide and I won't run (Day one, day one, day one)
      This is Day One
      This is Day One

    9. I'll Know When It's Over

      I hear a love knockin', but I must send it away
      Lost but not forgotten, it just seems harder to take
      But I know what people say, they tell me I must go it alone
      If I lose you along the way, will time heal the pain?

      Only I know when it's over, only I know, I know
      When it's over, only I know
      I feel a heart breakin', but I won't stand in your way
      This love is lost, but not forsaken
      Don't turn your back and just walk away

      Now I know what people see, they tell me I must go it alone
      It's over you but it's up to me, will time ever heal the pain?
      Only I know when it's over, only I know, I know

      When it's over, only I know
      I know when it's over, only I know, I'll know
      When it's over, only I know

      Now I know what people see, they tell me I must go it alone
      It's over you but up to me, will time ever heal the pain?
      I know when it's over, only I know, I know

      When it's over, only I know, I know when it's over
      Only I know, I know, (I feel a heart breakin') when it's over, only I know
      I know, I know when it's over, I know (I feel her love talkin')
      I know, I know, I know

    10. Tin Soldier

      (spoken)

        Come on now!

        I am a little tin soldier
        Who wants to jump into your fire
        You are a look in your eye
        A dream passing by in the sky

        No I don't understand
        All I need is treat me like a man
        'Cause I ain't no child
        You take me by my hand

        I got to know that I belong to you
        Do anything that you want me to
        I'll sing any song that you want me to sing to you

        I don't need no complications
        I just got to make you
        I just got to make you this confrontation

        I got to know that I belong to you
        Do anything that you want me to
        Sing any song that you want me to sing to you

        All I need is your whispered hello
        Smiles melting the snow of the hurt
        Your eyes are deeper than time
        Say a love that won't last without words

        So now I've lost my way
        I need you to show me things to say
        Give me your love before mine fades away

        I got to know that I belong to you
        Do anything that you want me to
        Sing any so song that you want me to sing to you

        Oh yeah, oh yeah
        I just want some reaction
        Someone to give me satisfaction
        All I want to do is prove to you , that I love you
