"When The Time Comes"

This might sound strange, it might seem dumb
Depends on the side that you take it in from
Depends on the time, depends on the day
Depends on a lot of things, who can say

I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
Will you stand by me when the time comes

Baby do you understand, am I making this clear
Are you tuning me out 'cause I'm coming off weird
Well I don't care, that's all right
It's okay, I don't mind

I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
Will you stand by me when the time comes

This ain't the right time to say what's on my mind
I know, but I look in your eyes

And there's no real life at all
Baby hold on

And someday soon you'll come around
You know where I can be found
When your heart feels right, seek me out
We can talk more then babe, but right now

I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
Will you stand by me when the time comes

I don't want you no more
I ain't gonna give any more than you give to me
I don't want you, it's too hard
Can't try any harder than you tried for me

You're gonna get it babe
I shoulda quit it babe but you look so good
Yeah you do you do you do you do you do
I kept thinkin' somethin' might change but I was just a fool

Go on, go do somebody else like you do to me
I don't want you, can't crawl
I can't crawl any further
You never crawled for me

You're gonna get it babe
I shoulda quit it babe but you look so good
Yeah you do you do you do you do you do
I kept thinkin' somethin' might change but I was just a fool

You're gonna get it babe
You're gonna get it babe
You're gonna get it babe
You're gonna get it babe

I walked to the window turned out the light
Looked at the city went back through the night
Yeah I stood in the darkness stood all alone
Thank God for California thank God I'm going home

That's right you hurt me baby hurt me good
Hurt me like no one else ever could
Cut down the middle face down in the dirt
And we both know it's too late to save it
Betcha feel proud about it baby
You taught me how to hurt

DC10, 10:45
Halfway to L.A. red in the eyes
Might be the devil, might just be his friend
It don't make no difference, you ain't gettin' me again

That's right you hurt me baby hurt me good
Hurt me like no one else ever could
Cut down the middle face down in the dirt
And we both know it's too late to save it
Betcha feel proud about it baby
You taught me how to hurt

"Magnolia"

From a table across the room
She was signaling me with her eyes
I walked over to be introduced
I said hello, she just smiled
And said I know a place not too far from here
We could get away for awhile
Yeah, that's when she kissed me and told me her name
I never did tell her mine

Magnolia
I remember the smell of the wind through the sweet
Magnolia
And I know that she's out there somewhere in the world
She's forgotten me but I remember her
Magnolia

Well her lips were as warm
As that wet southern night
Her eyes were as black as the sky
And I wondered aloud
Just what I done right
As I lay there with her by my side
Then she took hold of my hand As she looked up at me
And said now I must tell you goodbye
And there in the moonlight
As I watched her leave
I felt a chill down inside

Magnolia
I remember the smell of the wind through the sweet
Magnolia
And I know that she's out there somewhere in the world
She's forgotten me but I remember her
Magnolia

"Too Much Ain't Enough"

Looks like you got a little more to lose
Now a little more at stake
I see you've had a hard time
Livin' with the change
You've got me on the line
Now tryin' to call your bluff
But you just won't be satisfied
Too much ain't enough

It ain't enough, it ain't enough

You're standing by the telephone
Waitin' for the word
And ever since that bathroom scene
There's been a slight concern
I'm tryin' to make this easy baby
You seem to like things rough
You just can't be satisfied
Too much ain't enough

Too much baby ain't enough no way
Too much baby ain't enough no way
Come on baby I'm down on my knees
Guess some little girls just can't be pleased

Little miss queen of hearts you're a strange thing
Why you wanna stay so vague
I'm wanderin' through this mess you made
To see what I can save
I'm livin' on the line now
Tryin' to call your bluff
But you just won't be satisfied
Too much ain't enough

"I Need To Know"

Well the talk on the street
Says you might go solo
A good friend of mine
Saw you leavin' by your back door

I need to know, I need to know
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know, I need to know
'Cause I don't know how long I can hold on
If you're makin' me wait, if you're leadin' me on
I need to know

Who would've thought that
You'd fall for his line
All of a sudden
It's me on the outside
I need to know
I need to know
Baby, I need to know

"Listen To Her Heart"

You think you're gonna take her away
With your money and your cocaine
Keep thinkin' that her mind is gonna change
But I know everything is okay

She's gonna listen to her heart
It's gonna tell her what to do
She might need a lot of lovin'
But she don't need you

You want me to think that I'm being used
You want her to think it's over
Can't you see it don't matter what you do
Buddy you don't even know her

She's gonna listen to her heart
It's gonna tell her what to do
She might need a lot of lovin'
But she don't need you

And you just can't creep up behind her
And you can't understand that she's my girl
She's my girl

She's gonna listen to her heart
It's gonna tell her what to do
She might need a lot of lovin'
But she don't need you

"No Second Thoughts"

She threw down her golden band
Crushed it with her feet into the sand
Took her silent partner by the hand
Yeah yeah oh yeah yeah

Somewhere near the edge of town
She said she was torn and turned around
"Can you help me cast this evil down?"
Yeah yeah oh yeah yeah

We'll drive for the line now
There's nothing to be lost
You and I will cross over
With no second thoughts

We'll drive for the line now
There's nothing to be lost
You and I will cross over
With no second thoughts

Dreams fade hope dies hard
She cups her eyes looks out at the stars
Says, "I feel we've traveled very far"
Yeah yeah oh yeah yeah
Yeah yeah oh yeah yeah
Yeah yeah oh yeah yeah

"Restless"

I don't belong to no one
I don't belong at all
Got my face in the corner
Got my back to the wall

And pretty baby I'm restless, restless
Restless through and through
I'm restless, restless
You look restless too

I'm a hair trigger lover
And I can't face up to nothing
I'm impatient with the wind
But I'm waitin' here for somethin'

And pretty baby I'm restless, restless
Restless through and through
I'm restless, restless
You look restless too

Restless sleep, twisted dreams
Moving targets, silent screams
Restless city, restless street
Restless you, restless me
I'm a face at the window
I'm a black satin sheet
And I can't stay warm
I stay out in the street

And pretty baby I'm restless, restless
Restless through and through
I'm restless, restless
You look restless too

"Baby's A Rock 'n' Roller"

My baby is a rock 'n' roller
My baby is a rock 'n' roller
Yeah and that's all
She ever wants to be

So why you tryin' to come on with this sophistication
She don't wanna know about your education
Man she don't care about the United Nations
My baby's gone on a rhythm sensation
That's all she ever wants to be

My baby is a rock 'n' roller
My baby is a rock 'n' roller

She can't take them stupid friends of yours
She ain't gonna go through all of that no more
She don't wanna be no dental assistant
Man she got the rhythm and she can't resist it
And that's all she ever wants to be

My baby is a rock 'n' roller
My baby is a rock 'n' roller
