1. In Your Eyes (3:58)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler]

Since you've been gone
And ever since you went away
It's hard to go on
And it's getting harder every day

I think of all the things that I've done wrong
I'll never understand what took so long
To see what you were feeling
But I still can't let you go

I can remember when you used to stand by me
And people would tell you
That we were never meant to be

I can take the words that they can say
For just another chance to make you stay
And have you believe me, that the feeling's still the same

I've seen the look in your eyes
And I'll get it back again
I feel the tears when you cry
Broken hearts were made to mend
I get a strength from inside
When I look into your eyes

I think of all the things that I've done wrong
I'll never understand what took so long
To see what she was feeling--what she's feeling
But I still can't let her go

I've made mistakes throughout my life
And I just can't take them back
Given the chance I would think twice
Going to let her know

I've seen the look in your eyes
And I'll get it back again
I feel the tears when you cry
Broken hearts were made to mend
I get a strength from inside
When I look into your eyes
2. Local Heroes (4:49)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler]

Thinking about our younger days, when we would say
No one would ever get us down
We'd never touch the ground
Proving wrong the dis-believing people
We'd take it day by day
Making it play by play

Living off ambition, never was an imposition
We wouldn't compromise
You gotta realize
People gathered around and gave us reasons
They kept us holding on
We couldn't do any wrong

Every night I'd get that same old feeling
Knowing that I wouldn't feel this way again

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
People would stand in line
They didn't seem to mind

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Only for just one day
We're gonna have our way

Playing in the different towns
Yeah, I'd steal the bed or you took the ground
We didn't really care
We got an even share
Friday night at closing time we'd be there
We'd share a drink or two
And then we'd play right through

Every night we'd get that same old feeling
Knowing that we wouldn't feel this way again

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
People would stand in line
They didn't seem to mind

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Only for just one day
We're gonna have our way

Just Local Heroes, Thinking that you've got it made
Just Local Heroes

(Guitar Solo)

Thinking about our younger days, now some would say
That I just can't keep holding on
To a dream thats gone
No one can change the way I feel though
Many years long ago
Thats tomorrow

HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
People would stand in line
They didn't seem to mind

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Only for just one day
We're gonna have our way

Just LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
3. One Step Behind (4:33)
[JERRY HARRISON]

Just idle conversation
Am I just passing time
Lack of communication
Should I even try

You always talk down to me
Like I'm not even there
Seems like you look right through me
Should I even care

Well I can't stop the way I've got to feel though
And I'm not turning back, won't take this life no more
I keep on coming, just

ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'm gaining all the time
I'm just ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'll be here till your mine

It's been a long time coming
I'll need some peace of mind
Everytime I start my running
One step closer, two steps behind

But I can't stop the way I've got to feel though
And I'm not turning back, won't take this life no more
I keep on coming, just

ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'm gaining all the time
I'm just ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'll be here till your mine

Just a misconception
To think that time would turn the tide
I found a new direction to get me there

I'm not complaining to ya
You've been ahead for much too long
Now I know I'm coming on

(Guitar solo)

Well I can't stop the way I've got to feel though
And I'm not turning back, won't take this life no more
I keep on coming

ONE STEP BEHIND
I'm ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'm gaining all the time

ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'm gaining all the time
I'm just ONE STEP BEHIND
And I'll be here till your mine
4. Walk Away (3:44)
[JERRY HARRISON]

Everything that you want to say
May not be what he wants to hear
Isn't time that you break away
Things aren't always what they appear

And I know you're searching for something
And I know you've waited so long
Well baby I could tell you one thing
Take my hand and I'll help you be strong, just

WALK AWAY, Don't think about tomorrow
WALK AWAY, Don't you ever look back
WALK AWAY, And things will get much better
WALK AWAY, WALK AWAY

Does he make you feel the way I make you feel
Is he closer to your heart
Do you imagine for the things that should be real
Must you always play that part, NO

Well don't put off until tomorrow
And don't you wait one more day
Well I would beg, steal or borrow
Just to have you and keep you from saying

WALK AWAY, Don't think about tomorrow
WALK AWAY, Don't you ever look back
WALK AWAY, And things will get much better
WALK AWAY, WALK AWAY

Can you feel it
It's time to let me know
Can't you see that
It's time to let him go
I've been waiting
And I've been holding on
Anticipating
For that moment you'll say that he'll be gone

( Guitar Solo )

There's a time to take action
And there's a time to explore
You can't deny this attraction
Now that it's time that you made up your mind
Will you take me and leave him behind
Give me a signal, give me a sign
You've got to

WALK AWAY, Don't think about tomorrow
WALK AWAY, Don't you ever look back
WALK AWAY, And things will get much better
WALK AWAY, WALK AWAY

Just Walk Away
5. Forever Young (3:51)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler]

Simple dreams a simple life
To feel the dull edge of the knife
From looking to remember whens and used to be's
But we're not losing time
Cause we can be

Forever Young
We'll never lose the fight
Forever Young
We'll never lose the right
To be forever young

The years have come and passed away
Still we can live from day to day

I look into your eyes
And I can be

Forever Young
We'll never lose the fight
Forever Young
We'll never lose the right
Forever young Forever we will be
Forever young together you and me
We'll be forever

(Guitar Solo)

We won't compromise
For just a state of mind
Cause we can be

Forever Young
We'll never lose the fight
Forever Young
We'll never lose the right
Forever young Forever we will be
Forever young together you and me
We'll be forever
6. Lost Love (2:52)
[Dan Wexler]

Girl, you used to be a good friend
But now you're just writing on the wall
I know we had a good time
But someone had to take a fall

You tore my heart from my hands
All I have left to say is

Goodbye, to a long lost love
Goodbye, to a long lost love, I'm thinking of tonight

I know there's a time and a reason
For promises made in the night

The love is going to end in a fight

You tore my heart from my hands
All I have left to say is

Goodbye, to a long lost love
Goodbye, to a long lost love, I'm thinking of tonight

(Guitar Solo)

There's a time for believing
The promises made in the night
We should have listened reason
We were holding on too tight

Goodbye, to a long lost love
Goodbye, to a long lost love, I'm thinking of tonight

Goodbye, to a long lost love
Goodbye, to a long lost love, I'm thinking of tonight
7. Eyes of a Prisoner (4:33)
[Dan Wexler, Jerry Harrison]

Lonely children,
Waiting for the night
Looking for reasons
If only to survive
Some runaways
Left behind to make their way
But you are the fortunate one
Who'll break the chains
And make them stay home

What do we see?
Looking in the eyes of those who'll never be
The same as you and me

The EYES OF A PRISONER
Is what you'll find
The EYES OF A PRISONER
Seem to be left behind

The angry city
We've reached the danger zone
A town without pity
A child without a home

What do they see?
Looking in our eyes can we pretend to be
untouched by what we see?

The EYES OF A PRISONER
Is what you'll find
The EYES OF A PRISONER
Seem to be left behind

The EYES OF A PRISONER
What are they searching for?
The EYES OF A PRISONER
You know they're deserving more

Will they reach the light of day?
Will they make a better way?
Can we hold an open hand?
Will they understand?

(Guitar Solo)

Runaways
Left behind to make their way
What can we say
Are they criminals?
What is it wrong
Or do we know
How can we see, see it in

The EYES OF A PRISONER
What will we find?
The EYES OF A PRISONER
Seem to be left behind

The EYES OF A PRISONER
What are they searching for?
The EYES OF A PRISONER
You know they're deserving more

The EYES OF A PRISONER
Is what you'll find
The EYES OF A PRISONER
Seem to be left behind

The EYES OF A PRISONER
What are they searching for?
The EYES OF A PRISONER
You know they're deserving more
8. Better Left Unsaid (4:31)
[Jerry Harrison]

Sometimes I talk too much
And sometimes I don't say enough
Some things are better left unsaid
You say what's on your mind
The way you tell the truth can be a crime
You're talking off the top of your head
It's just your fill of devotion
That keeps you saying the things you do
But baby I know

Some things are Better Left Unsaid
And better left alone
Some things are Better Left Unsaid
And better left alone

Some things you'll never find
No matter where you go or who you leave behind
You better look inside instead
Some things too hot to touch
You know you're wrong but you push your luck
Some things are better left unsaid

It's just your fill of emotion
That keeps you playing the games you do
But baby I know

Some things are Better Left Unsaid
And better left alone
Some things are Better Left Unsaid
And better left alone

In your heart beats confusion
And you're talking me down
But what do you know

( Guitar Solo )

Sometimes I talk too much
And sometimes I don't say enough
Some things are better left unsaid

Some things are better left unsaid
And better left alone
Some things are better left unsaid
You keep talking me down
9. Left to Be Alone (4:59)
[Jerry Harrison]

Faded pictures, photographs
Are all I have to keep you in my mind
Trying hard I'm Looking back
The memories that we had yet to find
This feeling thats come over me
Can only be, of the killing kind
I never thought I'd live to see
The best of me, could be left behind
So I wanted to let you know

We had dreams for the future
And there wasn't time for us to know
( Why'd you have to go? )
That it would be left to me
Left To Be Alone

So many things I tried to say
So many times the words got in the way
Now anger turns to lonliness
I can't forget the way you left
Now I can never let you know
How I missed you so

We had dreams for the future
And there wasn't time for us to know
( Why'd you have to go? )
That it would be left to me
Left To Be Alone

One step forward for me and two steps back
I'm learning to crawl again
Girl, I can't forget
Girl, I still hear your voice
Telling me leave here
I've got to let you know

We had dreams for the future
And there wasn't time for us to know
( Why'd you have to go? )
That it would be left to me
Left To Be Alone
