Bump Ahead Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Colorado Bulldog (4:12)
Ace high in golden
I was tall and on the rocks
And a little touch of attitude
Who's that Madame X
Comon' in at three o'clock
Why don't you send her over, one, two
Next thing I remember
I was crawlin' round the room
She was dacin' on the table
Blood shot barking' at the moon
Colorado Bulldog
This night has gone to my head
Colorado bulldog
Throw a leash around my neck
Turn around and run like hell
Swingin' from the rafters,
Losin' all control
Playin' a little game of cat and mouse
I poped the question
I've been lonely much too long
Last call, the drinks are on the house
Next thing I remember
Through the pandemonium
It was feelin' like a nightmare
That bites right into my skin

My sweet Lolita, a preying maneater
Left me in the number six motel
How was I to know
She'd strip me to the bone
And steal away my heart as well
Colorado bulldog
This night has gone to my head
Colorado Bulldog
Throw a leash around my neck
Bottoms up, down the hatch
It's time to start all over again.
2. Price You Gotta Pay (3:56)
I could take what I want, but I take what I need.
How can I help myself if I need everything ?
I get possession with half of the truth.
Then change my direction when the bill comes due, yeah.
Then I turn around, the man is standing at the door.
It's the price ,the price, price, the price you gotta pay
It's comin' down today
At the time it seems so easy
Like any game you play
There's a price for saying maybe
The price you gotta pay
I got here with nothing
I'll leave with a lot
Come on and take a chance now baby,
Gimme what you got, yeah
A piece of the action
A slice of the pie
I hope you won't remember when it's time to testify
I turn around to look at you
You're lookin' back my way.
It's the price, the price, price, the price you gotta pay
It's coming down today
At the time it seems so easy
Like any game you play
There's a price for saying maybe
The price you gotta pay
Hit me !
Oh, yeah yeah
Now this is how it all adds up
Rent is due and so are you
I'm here to repossess your soul
Hey, baby, you're deep into the hole
It's the price the price you gotta pay
It's coming down today
It started out so easy like a little game
There's a price for saying maybe
The price you gotta pay
3. Promise Her the Moon (4:06)
Hey, yeah yeah
You don't know what you've got
Till the love is almost gone
This time, yeah she's given up
Still in a state of shock
I should've seen it coming on
It's too late for waking up
Her mind's made up
I know the dream is over
But my heart just can't let go
She's too good to be forgotten
Too good to be true
Before my world is torn apart
I'll promise her the moon
I'll promise her the moon
I was too blind to notice her
Wrapped up in myself
Workin' hard overtime, night and day
I thought we were so secure
Can' imagine someone else
Could come between us
And take her away
Her mind's made up
I know the dream is over
But my heart just can't let go
She's too good to be forgotten
Too good to be true
Before my world is torn apart
I'll promise her the moon
I'll promise her the moon
And all the time she stood by me
I never said "I love you"
Yeah, I kept it deep down in my soul
And all the while I've been a fool
yeah, yeah yeah.
4. What's It Gonna Be (3:57)
What's it gonna be, baby?
Shivers down my spine
Swim on to your island
Is your treasure mine?
Send me out an answer
Tell me something real
What's it gonna be, baby?
What's it gonna be?
Why 's it have to be so hard
To win your sympathy?
What's it gonna be, baby?
What's it gonna be?
You're takin' your time makin' up your mind
You should be makin' time with me, yeah
How's it gonna feel, baby?
Your back's against the wall
Close your eyes and feel your
Body starts to fall..
Gimme little answer woh...
What's it gonna be, baby?
What's it gonna be?
What's it gonna take to see the posibilities?
What's it gonna be, baby?
What's it gonna be?
You're takin' your time makin' up your mind
You should be makin' time with me, yeah
Send me out an answer
Tell me how you feel
Move a little closer
Gimme something real
Put you in my pocket
Keep you for a day
Let the good doctor
Take you away...
come on, baby....yeah...
5. Wild World (3:28)
La...la...la...la...la

Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving
Baby I'm grieving

And if you wanna leave take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
A lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
'Cause I never want to see you sad, girl
Don't be a bad girl

But if you wanna leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
Just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
And I'll always remember you like a child girl

La...la...la...la...la...baby, I love you.
But if you wanna leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
Just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
And I'll always remember you like a child girl, oh, yeah.

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile, yeah,
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
And I'll always remember you like a child girl
6. Mr. Gone (4:32)
You feel a tap upon your shoulder
Turn around, there's no one there
Is your mind just getting older?
Are you whispering a prayer?
When you feel you're someone else,
In the cloud all by yourself
Love, choice, and destiny
Knocked on your door
You were gone
Sold your world to keep it free
Are you lonely tonight, Mister Gone?

Twist your heart up over nothing
Your will is working double time
Intuition has misled you
She's polite but so unkind

Where's your love
Where's your life?
Get your head out of the sand
Free your mind
Free your soul
An open heart will understand
Yeah...
Come on, everything is cool...
Hoo....hoo...
Oh...yeah we need love
Ah, yeah we gotta make a change
Alright
Lose your personality
When all of your rights turn to wrong
Blinded by the things you see
Are you lonely tonight Mister Gone?
Mister Gone...
7. The Whole World's Gonna Know (3:52)
Your secret is safe
I'll keep it on the inside
Cover your play, makin' up a white lie
I can't complain
She's finally off of my back
I shoulda know better
She came in from the wrong side of the tracks

I'll keep my mouth shut
Nothing else I can do
At the rate that you're going
Baby, pretty soon
The whole world is gonna know
The whole world is gonna know
What you've done to me
The whole world is gonna know
The whole world is gonna know all about it, baby

I used to be as foolish as the last guy
I made up my mind
There'll never be a next time, no
Now that you're done with all your fake affection
So many like me, you know
They're getting wise to your deception
Nothing I can do
8. Nothing But Love (3:45)
Guess what baby
The things we say
came true today
Coz we listened to our hearts
No one but you will ever do
Our search is through
But our journey's just beginning
Nothing but love can last forever
Nothing but love will start
To mend the place inside your heart
That needed healing
Nothing but love can last forever
Nothing but love will start
To make your head spin round and round
You know you're feeling love
Nothing but love
Nothing but love
Can't read your mind
Lord knows I'm tryin'
But in your eyes
I see everything you need to know
Nothing to do but follow you
My aim is true I could never ask for any more
And if you walk away
You know that I will follow
To steal back your broken heart
At least until tomorrow
Because whatever comes today
Beside you I can't hide you're the one
Nothing but love can last forever
Nothing but love will start
To mend the place inside your heart
That needed healing
Nothing but love can last forever
Nothing but love will start
To make your head spin round and round
You know you're feeling
Nothing but love could hold our world together
Nothing but love can start
To let us hear the sounds above
that have been screaming love
Nothing but love
9. Temperamental (4:55)
She's shakin' like a dash-board doll
Cool, cruel and calculating
A beauty in the back seat
She runs hot and leaves you cold
She's wicked with a mean streak
A time-bomb ticking away
Here comes trouble right on the double
With a split-personality
Heaven knows there's hell to pay
Never have I seen such an attitude
Don't shoot, it's only me, babe
Watch what you might say hey
And how you say it
She's so temperamental
Don't turn your back on a good little girl like that
She's oh-so twisted, she's so temperamental
Just a little bit
Temperamental
One minute she's an innocent child
Sweet taste of her emotion
Angel with a strange twist
Man, it's all worthwhile
Bad luck comin' on strong
Ready to meet it halfway home
Heartbreaker
Time to meet the maker
'Cause her mind's long-gone
Heaven knows there's hell to pay
Never have I seen such an attitude
Don't shoot, it's only me, babe
Watch what you might say hey,
And how you say it
She's so temperamental
Don't turn your back on a good little girl like that
She's oh, so twisted, she's so temperamental
Just a little bit wicked.
10. Ain't Seen Love Like That (3:31)
I've been miles from nowhere
Crossed and doubled back
Time is a healer
And I've done my time
Cause I ain't seen love like that
I've seen the light of freedom
Dim and fade to black
So many faces, but no one compares
No, I ain't seen love like that
And I got people telling me to let her go
Don't let it turn you around
Tomorrow's comin' and you'll never know
The one that you lost may be found
I believe in justice
I wonder where's she's at
It feels like a lifetime
And it just ain't fair
No I ain't seen love like that
And I got people tellin' me to let her go
That girl is bringin' you down
Tomorrow's comin'
And you'll never
The love that you lost may be found
You know that people telling me to let her go
Dont' let it trun you around
Tomottow's comin' and you'll never know
The love that you lost may be found
No, I ain't seen love like that
So many faces, (ain't seen love like that)
No one compares I ain't seen love like that
(ain't seen love like that) ain't seen love....
(ain't seen love like that) no I ain't
11. Mr. Big (4:14)
All right, huh!
I work hard every day
Come rain or shine
Don't need nobody
To tell about a girl of mine
She's got so much love
She saved it all for me
And I would not be lying
It's the way it's gotta be

So mister Big, uh
Better watch out, uh
And don't you hang around me now
That' all for you
I would dig-ya
A great big hole in the ground
All right....yeah, yeah
Now listen
I don't care who you are.

So don't explain
Better get on out of here
And don't you come back again
I don't want a thing from ya
Don't wanna give you nothing too
So get on out of here
Before I lose my cool
[repeat chorus]

Don't you know I really need to?
Oh, woh, woh, Mister Big, yeah.
