Submitted by level LightListener
1. Right Between the Eyes (5:14)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler, Tracy Wallach, Pat Dixon]

I never thought it could feel this good to me.
I never thought I could live out a fantasy.
Now you've had me and passed me by.
I should have seen it but I was blind.

Right between the eyes,
like a shot through my heart
A knife from behind
Right between the eyes

I gave my all and you kept wanting more
When push came to shove. then you walked right out my door

All those feelings were wasted time
Should have seen it but I was blind

Right between the eyes
Like a shot through my heart
A knife from behind
Right between the eyes

Right between the eyes
You can tear me apart
You can leave me behind
Right between the eyes

(Guitar solo)

I waited, waited for you
only to find you were untrue
I wasted, wasted my time
I took you in, you left me behind

Right between the eyes
Like a shot through the heart
A knife from behind
Right between the eyes
2. Two for the Road (3:54)
[Jerry Harrison]

People talk about the way I'm living
I know I'm going to live for myself
There's Heaven above so I know I'll be forgiven
I'm no worse than anybody else.

Oh Oh tell me how you want me
Oh Oh because I like it like that
Oh Oh but don't you try to chain me
Oh Oh Oh Give me

Two for the road, one to come home to
Having the time of my life
Two for the road, one to come home to
I'll never be satisfied

I want more than any man should ask
I know I'm going to get my share
Keep talking future and tomorrow you're the past
I know two more will be there

Oh Oh climb up here up on me
Oh Oh why don't you bring your sister too
Oh Oh but don't you try and tame me
Oh Oh Oh

Two for the road, one to come home to
Having the time of my life
Two for the road, one to come home to
I'll never be satisfied

Don't tell me your name
Just spend a little time with me
I'll take away the heartache
And then you'll know what I mean

Oh Oh climb up here up on me
Oh Oh Why don't you bring your sister too
Oh Oh but don't you try and tame me
Oh Oh Oh

Two for the road, one to come home to
Having the time of my life
Two for the road, one to come home to
I'll never be satisfied
3. Taking My Breath Away (4:36)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler, Tracy Wallach, Pat Dixon]

I feel your heat through my body
Whenever you move
You know that I can't control it
With the things that you do
I'm just a fool for you

I'll take the chance on waiting for you
Can't hide my feelings, you see right through
Do you feel it too, you're

Taking my breath away
I know that I'm here to stay
You're taking my breath away
I can't be wrong, it feels so strong
And it's never gonna stop

It feels like years every second, that you are gone
You know I'd die if you left me
Left me alone, you keep me holding on

I'll take the chance on waiting for you
Can't hide my feelings, you see right through
Do you feel it too, you're

Taking my breath away
I know that I'm here to stay
You're taking my breath away
I can't be wrong, it feels so strong
And it's never gonna stop, I hit the top

(Guitar solo)

It feels so strong
I can't be wrong, no no
You've got my temperature rising
When you come around
You push my heart to the limit
Don't let me down cause baby I found, you're

Taking my breath away
I know that I'm here to stay
You're taking my breath away
I can't be wrong, it feels so strong
And it's never gonna stop
4. Far Cry (4:17)
[Dan Wexler, Jerry Harrison, Tracy Wallach, Pat Dixon]

He was born in New York
On a subway train
Raised up in poverty
(Hell) Don't even have a name

He looks up while he's singing for a quarter
At the girl in a limousine
Reaching out just to touch her
She looks down laughing at him

Waiting waiting every morning
Hoping things are going to change
He can hear her say

All that I've got, all that you're not
You're a far cry from love
All that I see, always you'll be
Such a far cry from love

Rich man makes him an offer
Perfect to a poor boys dream
You want the girl, you want the power
Here's a way to be just like me

Sell this crack from off the corner
Fate is waiting here for you, then he says

All that I've got, all that you're not
You're a far cry from love
All that I see, always you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Open your eyes don't you realize you're a far cry from love

So impressed with the name you're making
See the neon shine,
Now she's shooting up the love she's faking
Don't you know it's not to late to change your life

All that you've got, maybe you're not
Such a far cry from love
All that you've seen, never you'll be
Such a far cry from love
Take your best shot, know that you're not
Take it from me baby I've been
Such a far cry from love
5. In Your Eyes (3:59)
[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
6. Holy Man's War (7:16)
[Dan Wexler, Jerry Harrison, Tracy Wallach, Pat Dixon]

Is it black against white
Or brother versus brother
Is it wrong against right
Or color versus color
You can see it in the night
Feel it in the morning
Is it worth the fight
You better take my warning

Cause you can't stop what you can't control
You can lose another life and take another soul

It's a holy mans war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy mans war
And rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
It's a holy mans war

If I see you walking on my part of town
Better bring your army we're gonna bring you down
We've got no reason for the things that we do
When you're born with nothing then you've nothing to lose

Cause you can't stop what you can't control
You can lose another life and take another soul

It's a holy mans war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy mans war
And rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
It's a holy mans war

There was a time when life meant so much to me
The longer I live the less that I want to see
That's not the way it should be

(Guitar Solo)

It's a holy mans war
It's a fight for survival
Trying to live day by day
It's a holy mans war
And rival versus rival
You can take it from me
With the things that I've seen
It's a holy mans war
7. Bad Times (3:25)
[Dan Wexler, Jerry Harrison]

Hey little girl so you ripped your dress today
And you don't know what your mama's going to say
You've got catechism after school you'll live by every golden rule
Everybody's got their dues to pay

And the preacher ain't been doing what he's preaching
Little girl says "Hey you watch where you've been reaching"

Living in Bad Times
Things were better yesterday
Living in Bad Times
Got to find a better way
And I think it's time that we all made that change--Oh Yeah

Blind man sitting on the corner day and night
Put a dime in his cup it will make you feel alright
He's got stories 'bout them good ole days
Same ole story different way
Least he knows what makes him see the light

And the homeless try to upgrade their position
And the money goes to the cheating politician

Living in Bad Times
Things were better yesterday
Living in Bad Times
Got to find a better way
And I think it's time that we all made that change--Oh Yeah

(Guitar Solo)

Living in Bad Times
Living in Bad Times
Live, Live, Living in Bad Times

Living in Bad Times
Things were better yesterday
Living in Bad Times
Got to find a better way
And I think it's time that we all made that change--Oh Yeah
8. Double Life (4:06)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler, Tracy Wallach, Pat Dixon]

Suzie was a show girl
Dancing on the west side of town
I swear I wouldn't know her
Cause she never let her hair hang down
Can't say what I was feeling
But it didn't feel right
Like seeing sweet little sister on a saturday night
She'd start to move and then I'd start to ignite
I'll tell you boys then she really blew my mind when she said....

Let me show you what I'm made of
And I swear she's like a dream sent from up above

I live a double life
You'd better think twice, so she said
I live a double life
Boy you're in over your head

You can take her
You can leave her
But you never can believe her, oh no

I met her at the bookstore
She wouldn't even talk to me
I said girl I'll teach you more
Than you ever felt before
In any of those books you read

Let me show you what I'm made of
I swear I'll be your dream sent from up above

I live a double life
You'd better think twice, so she said
I live a double life
Boy you're in over your head

She's cookin'They're lookin
She's working overtime
She's layin' They're payin'
I've got her on my mind
I've got the money if you say you've got the time
She said, hey boy, I think you've never made a dime, so she said

(Guitar Solo)

I live a double life
You'd better think twice, so she said
I live a double life
Boy you're in over your head
9. Forever Young (3:50)
[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
10. Running Under Fire (4:25)
[Dan Wexler, Jerry Harrison]

She's daddys little girl
Protected from the world
Got it all in her pocket
Now it's time to unlock it
Another tight jean sixteen
You know what I mean
Getting restless, she's untested
It's time to leave the nest, yeah

She won't take your rejection
She'll just find a new direction, she's

Running under fire (oh,oh,oh)
Running under fire, always wanting more
Running under fire (oh,oh,oh) she's running

If you've got it then she wants it
Taking what she needs
A live wire getting higher
But baby watch your speed
You want to push it to the limit
Show them what you've got
You want to be independent
It's everything you're not

She won't take your rejection
She'll just find a new direction, she's

Running under fire (oh,oh,oh)
Running under fire, always wanting more
Running under fire (oh,oh,oh) she's running

(Guitar Solo)

She won't take your rejection
She'll just find a new direction, she's

Running under fire (oh,oh,oh)
Running under fire, always wanting more
Running under fire (oh,oh,oh) she's running
