Lyrics – 2000!

Marlboro Music 1994

Album 2000!

by Dan Lucas

It´s Only Money

I believed in god and country
I believed just what the politicians said
Don´t wanna live in an ivory tower
Just want a roof over my head

Your little lies are getting old
Your shangri la ain´t got no gold

Chorus:
It´s only money – you´ll never get enough
It´s only money – and getting it is tough
But money can´t buy my soul no more

You raise the rent then you raise the taxes
You turn the screws yeah you know just where to squeeze
ou always got one hand in my pocket
You bring me down but you´ll never bring me to my knees

It´s gonna get worse so I´ve been told
But I can take the heat on the long hard road

Chorus:
It´s only money – you´ll never get enough
It´s only money – and getting it is tough
But money can´t buy my soul
can´t buy my soul no more

When the walls came tumblin´ down
And you promised us a better life with rags to riches
Now I feel like a broken hearted clown
The mistakes have all been made
And the aces in the deck have all been played

By The Riverside

I feel your fingers runnin´ through my hair
But then it´s only the wind
They say there´s nothin´ more than desert there
And it feels fire when I breathe in

I know you wanna be the faithful one
And I believe that you can
I know you only want your happiness
And the true love of a good man

If I can´t be the one to fill those dreams
then I can take your good-bye
But if you´re really comin´ back to me
I swear until the day I die

Chorus:
I´ll be waiting by the riverside
cool white water runnin´ deep and wide
I´ll be waiting by the riverside
when you come back home
when you´re all alone
I will be a rock among the rolling stone

There´s nothin´ I wouldn´t do
If I got to fight forever girl I will
It´s never to much when I love you

And so before you go to sleep tonight
Just think about it should be
I´m holdin´ on to you with all my might
Girl until you´re here with me

Chorus:
I´ll be waiting by the riverside
cool white water runnin´ deep and wide
I´ll be waiting by the riverside
when you come back home
when you´re all alone
I will be a rock among the rolling stone

When the sun goes down
When the floods come up
Gonna take you home
Gonna fill you up
Cause I can´t let go
When I know it´s love
When you´re in my arms
It´s never enough

There´s nothin´ I wouldn´t do

Where Would I Be

Another day of getting nowhere
Working hard and losing ground
All my life has been a battle to survive
There are times when I forget what I have found

But when I come home late and see your face
You look up and smile
And suddenly I find my place

Chorus:
Without your love where would I be
Without your eyes what would I see
You give my life its meaning
You´re the reason I keep on breathing
Without your love where would I be

Every morning when I wake up
I think about my hopes and fears, yeah
How could I handle them without you by my side
All my heart and soul would slowly disappear
When I´m feelin´ down
And really blue
You´re the one who´s there
to pull me up and see me through

Chorus:
Without your love where would I be
Without your eyes what would I see
You give my life its meaning
You´re the reason I keep on breathing
Without your love where would I be

The times I lose direction
Realize my imperfection
You make me strong
yeah, without you I´m gone

Chorus:
Without your love where would I be
Without your eyes what would I see
You give my life its meaning
You´re the reason I keep on breathing
Without your love where would I be
Whithout you where would I be

Wanted

Why Is the fire cold in your heart
I could swear there was a spark
Now I´m standin´ in the dark
Why do you turn away when I feel week
Now I´m talkin´ in my sleep
And I´m fallin´ way too deep

Save me take me
Help me understand
Hold me show me
I´m just an ordinary man

Chorus:
I wanna be wanted
Say i´m the only one
I wanna be wanted
Ohh, why can´t you see I wanna be wanted

I pray that you say these words
I´m waiting for
Cause I´ve been knockin´ at your door
But you can´t hear me anymore

Save me take me
Help me understand
Hold me show me
I´m just an ordinary man

Chorus:
I wanna be wanted
Say i´m the only one
I wanna be wanted
Ohh, why can´t you see I wanna be wanted
Wanna be wanted

If it rains without a warnin´
Can´t you keep this bed from burnin´
Would you stay until the mornin´ comes

Close Your Eyes And Say Goodbye

Oh the engine´s runnin´ and I must go
I´ve got a long drive and a longer night
Oh just close your eyes until the doors close
And cause ya can´t turn back when it fades to black

And through the night
Just think about how we couldn´t make it right yeah
And in your dreams
Don´t dream about what will never ever be just
Go live your life
Like a lesson learned
And be glad when you turn out the lights

Chorus:
Oh close your eyes and say goodbye
Don´t look back or into my eyes
Don´t hold on just be strong
Won´t be long oh darlin´
Close your eyes and say goodbye

Oh this truck stop just seems so far away
There´s just a midnight cop and a runaway
Oh the waitress listens to my said life
She hears the same old story every day and night

I´d turn around
But we´d burned our love right to the groung
I´d call you up
And I´d hear your voice but it wouldn´t be enough now
I´d try again
But it wouldn´t work out
And we´de face the end again

Chorus:
Oh close your eyes and say goodbye
Don´t look back or into my eyes
Don´t hold on just be strong
Won´t be long oh darlin´
Close your eyes and say goodbye

Oh close the book and throw it away
Don´t remember all of the joy
Only the pain
And when we say goodnight
Close your eyes and say goodbye

I´d turn around
But we´d burned our love right to the groung
I´d call you up
And I´d hear your voice but it wouldn´t be enough now
I´d try again
But it wouldn´t work out
And we´de face the end again
And we both got lives waitin´ round the bend

Chorus

Waiting

I never thought love would ever find me
Time after time it seemed to pass me by
Once in a while I said yeah this is it
I could never last in a lie

Restlessness hangin´ around like cigarette smoke
Loneliness following me like a shadow

Chorus:
All the times
There was nothin´ inside
All the rides on the carrousel
And the nights all alone in the dark
I was just waiting for you
It was all I coud do
I was just waiting for you

You came around and I was expecting
Just another spin on the merry-go-round
Minute to minute you opened my eyes
and led me up to higher ground

Tenderness healing the scars so deep in my soul
Oh promises easy to make cause now I know

Chorus:
All the times
There was nothin´ inside
All the rides on the carrousel
And the nights all alone in the dark
I was just waiting for you
It was all I coud do
I was just waiting for you

After all the emptiness
I´ve had to live
forever is what I want to give

Can´t hold back

I was waiting for the glove to fall
Staring at the pictures hanin´ on my wall
Maybe I´ve had my chance
Maybe there´s no way back
But I´ll just climb this mountain
One more time turn my eyes to the sky

Chorus:
Cause I can´t hold back now
I can´t hold back
When I lie awake every breath I take
Belongs to you somehow

Belongs to you somehow

I was frozen like a photograph
There inside the stillness of love´s epitaph

Baby these streets are cold
IAnd I need your arms to hold
But I´ll just climb this mountain
One more time turn my eyes to the sky

Chorus:
Cause I can´t hold back now
I can´t hold back
When I lie awake every breath I take
Belongs to you somehow

And on these streets we´ll gather
This life forever after baby

Maybe there´s no way back
But I´ll just climb this mountain
One more time turn my eyes to the sky

Chorus:
Cause I can´t hold back now
I can´t hold back
When I lie awake every breath I take
Belongs to you somehow

I just turn my eyes up to the sky

I´m Not Looking For An Angel

You ain´t no convent cutie
You never never do your duty
You ain´t never gonna earn a halo
You make a livin´ on the devil´s payroll

And in the dark you come to life
You´re so wicked you would burn up in the naked light
I can´t wait to hear your lies tonight

Chorus:
I´m not lookin´ for an angel
I need someone who´s as bad as you
I´m not lookin´ for an angel
You´re no good girl
That´s why I want you

Your heart is void of mercy
Your blood is cold and thursty
Your lips are spittin´ fire
And the flames are gettin´ higher

And in the mornin´ you are gone
You have left me here to die
your dirty deed is done
I´m addicted to the pain of love

Chorus:
I´m not lookin´ for an angel
I need someone who´s as bad as you
I´m not lookin´ for an angel
You´re no good girl
That´s why I want you

I´m not lookin´ for an angel
You´re on fire and I can´t get anough
I´m not lookin´ for an angel
I´m addicted to the pain of your love

Aim For The Heart

On my own
Never felt so alone
The streets are the only place I can call home
Where´s my dream
What´s it mean to me now
What´s it mean when you´re down for the count
You gotta get up and keep on fightin´

Chorus:
Aim for the heart
It´s your life and you only live one time
Aim for the heart and you get what you need
It´s a shot in the dark
Make it count cause it might just be your last chance
You only got one shot
Baby aim for the heart

Time goes by
And you ain´t gettin´ nowhere
Makes you wonder why you´re tryin´ at all
But inyour soul
You can still feel the fire
You can still find your way through the night
All you gotta do is keep on dreamin´

Chorus:
Aim for the heart
It´s your life and you only live one time
Aim for the heart and you get what you need
It´s a shot in the dark
Make it count cause it might just be your last chance
You only got one shot
Baby aim for the heart

When you´re losin´ faith
And you feel you can´t go on
Look inside and you´re gonna find the strength
to make you strong

Chorus

Immacculate Eyes

You´re impatient I get bored when there´s no
Conversation I lose desire cause you´re
Not what you appeared to be
Not what you appeared to be

Imperfectionhas left no trace upon you
Your reflection you depend upon it

You might be beautiful but what´s behind it
You have a pretty face but what are you hidin´

Chorus:
I´d rather stare at the stains on my window than look into those
Immaculate eyes
I´d rather gaze at the dust on my pillow than look into those
Immaculate eyes

Invitation signals you are sending
Hesitation like a never ending
Vertigo inside of me
Vertigo

No doubt I couldlook at you for hours
But it´s no good when good looks overpower

You might be beautiful but what´s behind it
You have a pretty face but what are you hidin´

Chorus:
I´d rather stare at the stains on my window than look into those
Immaculate eyes
I´d rather gaze at the dust on my pillow than look into those
Immaculate eyes

If there´s more to you than meets the eyes why
Can´t I find it
You laugh sweetly when I ask you if your beauty´s skin seep

I´d rather gaze at the dust on my pillow than look into those eyes

Your immaculate eyes
Immaculate eyes
Your immaculate eyes

What Does It Take

Darlin´ please
I´m weak in the knees
What can I do to get you to believe
I play the fool I go to school
There isn´t anything I wouldn´t do

You´re nothin´ like any girl I knew before
Give me the keys that´ll open up the door

Chorus:
What does it take
To make you really love me
What does it take
To say you really care
What does it take
To keep you thinkin´ of me
Tell me and you know I´ll be right there

Like a book
I can read that look
The line is out you got me on the hook
If you´d say baby we can play
There ain´t a chance you´ll aver get away

I can´t let go now that I have found you
I lose my mind when ever I´m around you

Chorus:
What does it take
To make you really love me
What does it take
To say you really care
What does it take
To keep you thinkin´ of me
Tell me and you know I´ll be right there

All my life never needed anyone
You know that I was always on the run
True love was somethin´ I just heard about
But you´ve made me find it
Now I can´t survive without it

Stranger

Pushed to the limit
The seems about to burst
Don´t think I can stand it
If things get any worse
Smile of an angel
The beauty hides the pain
And now our love we crucify again and again

Chorus:
Because baby, your heart is filled with anger
And you turn into a stranger, I don´t know
Baby, in love we lie in danger
cause we hide away the stranger

We end up pretending
The past will fade away
Our hearts were defending
so strong and gallantly
We´re a hot burnin´ candle
That´s drownin´ in the rain
And though we try hard to deny
That we´re sayin´ goodbye

Chorus:
Because baby, your heart is filled with anger
And you turn into a stranger, I don´t know
Baby, in love we lie in danger
cause we hide away the stranger

Every moment cloudy day
Thoughts surround me turn to grey
I know it will never go away
still hounts my memories, my memories

I never meant to make you cry
And with this sentenced love we left to die, yeah

Chorus

The Bridge

Sometimes I wonder what´s the right thing
Maybe you could let me know
We were strucked by lightning a lifetime ago
Noone else´s vision
Ever let me see
How your good intention
Cast its spell on me

Chorus:
Now there´s a bridge I can´t get over
There´s a weight I can´t get under
It´s a dream I still remember
But it won´t come true
If there´s a lession I would learn it
I would Cross it now or burn it
There´s a bridge I can´t get over
Between me and you

Love can take some crazy side streets
It can twist and turn around
Lookin´ for a straight and narrow
Doubt it can be found
When has hesitation
Set somebody free
Baby in your wisdom
Shine your grace on me

Chorus:
Cause there´s a bridge I can´t get over
There´s a weight I can´t get under
It´s a dream I still remember
But it won´t come true
If there´s a lession I would learn it
I would Cross it now or burn it
There´s a bridge I can´t get over
Between me and you

And I have lived with indicision
And hoped without a reason
Now I´m tired of all this self-pity baby
Give me the room to leave

If You Need Me Tonight

Here is a heart without a home
Livin´ day to day
You´re on my mind you´re in my soul
With every breath I take
I never thought that we
Could drift so far apart
I never should have let you go
You´re love´s the only thing I know

I see you passing me by
And I reach out my hand
I miss the passion I miss your touch
And everything we had
I wanna close my eyes and open them to you
I didn´t wanna go away
I only need to hear you say

Chorus:
If you need me tonight
Give me one little chance
Open your heart to me
Give me one single chance
Look in my eyes and see
Just what you´ve done to me

You are the sun where there is rain
Warmin´ me inside
You are the arms that heal the pain
When I´m not alright
We had it all before we´ll get it back I swear
There´s nothin´ that I wouldn´t do
I only wanna be with you

Chorus:
So If you need me tonight
Give me one little chance
Open your heart to me
Give me one single chance
Look in my eyes and see
Just what you´ve done to me

Baby, can I get you back in my life
I want you back

Chorus
If you need me tonight
Give me one little chance
Open your heart to me
Give me one single chance
Look in my eyes and see
Just what you´ve done to me

I never should have let you go
So tell me baby
If you need me tonight
