1. Rendezvous
Lets make a Rendezvous
A fantasy come true
I''ve had to wait so long
We''ve got to see it through
No time to hesitate
Baby don''t make me wait
We''ll be in paradise
We could be there tonight

I know we''ve been friends
For such a long time
You cried on my shoulder
While I waited in line
I said to myself that''s what best friends are for
But there''s something I''ve been holding back
I''ve never said before

Lets make a Rendezvous
A fantasy come true
I''ve had to wait so long
We''ve got to see it through
No time to hesitate
Baby don''t make me wait
We''ll be in paradise
We could be there tonight

Don''t wait any longer
Let down your defence
Girl trying to fight it
Don''t make any sense
I know what I see when I look in your eyes
Baby, what I''m saying to you
Should come as no suprise

Lets make a Rendezvous
A fantasy come true
I''ve had to wait so long
We''ve got to see it through
No time to hesitate
Baby don''t make me wait
We''ll be in paradise
We could be there tonight

Lets make a Rendezvous...
2. Lonely At The Top
It''s a long way down from the top to the bottom
And I''m slipping all the time
So many people around me
Trying to take whats really mine

I made it all alone
Not a single helping hand
So many people are afraid of
The things they don''t understand

It''s lonely at the top
Everybody''s trying to do you in
All the losers down below
Trying to drag you back there again
It''s lonely at the top
It''s a long, long lonely drop
And I feel I''m slipping day by day

My number isn''t listed
But they stop me in the street
Catch me in the elevator
Now they''re turning on the heat

I think I''m going crazy
But I know I''m not alone
There''s a private detective in the car behind
And a bugging device on the phone

It''s lonely at the top
Everybody''s trying to do you in
All the losers down below
Trying to drag you back there again
It''s lonely at the top
It''s a long, long lonely drop
And I feel I''m slipping day by day

It''s lonely at the top
Everybody''s trying to do you in
All the losers down below
Trying to drag you back there again
It''s lonely at the top
It''s a long, long lonely drop
And I feel I''m slipping day by day
3. Letter From L.A.
Through my door
Come a letter
I expected
Something better.

You've got my number,
So why not call.
You said you loved me
After all

(Chorus)
I got a letter from L.A.
She said there'll be a slight delay.
I got a letter from L.A.
That broke my heart.

Can't help feeling
So dejected.
Feels so sad
To be rejected

So you like the sunshine.
You've made lots of friends.
Goodbye in a letter,
Is that how it ends.

(Rep chorus)

Everything we planned to do,
All we planned to see
The things I wanted to give to you
Have been thrown back at me.

(Rep chorus)
4. Paris By Air
I walk down the street
With time on my hands
The signs on the walls
Show far off lands
But I don''t know a soul
In this neighbourhood
Can afford the fair
They''re stuck here for good

The only way
I''ll ever see the world
Is if I can become
A rich mans girl
Use my body
To twist his mind
Steal his money
And leave him behind

Paris by Air
Such a beautiful sight
There''s nothing can compare
With Paris by night
Paris by air
The signpost said
I''d love to be there
But I don''t have the bread

Well who could be happy
With what they''ve got
When the signs in the street
Show them what they have not
Paris by Air
Try it and see
But the common people
Will never be free

And growing up
Can be such a pain
Cos you never have things
So easy again
You realise
What it''s all about
You''re in prison
And you can''t break out

Paris by Air
Such a beautiful sight
There''s nothing can compare
With Paris by night
Paris by air
The signpost said
I''d love to be there
But I don''t have the bread
5. Tides
The shallow waters lopped upon the rocks,
The shadows moved as the moon shone down,
I saw your features as plain as the day.
I heard your voice in sound of waves.

The mighty tides breathe in and out again,
I heard the surf crashing closer,
And in that moment you were there by my side,
As if the years had never flown past.

(Chorus)
That was a long time ago,
I don't want to dwell in the past.
That sas a long time ago,
Now I must escape from your ghost.

The minutes pass, the illusion still holds,
My fingers runnig down my spine,
And iin the east I see the first of dawn.
And with the light I feel you slip away

(Rep chorus)
6. Making Tracks
I've been a bad boy,
I've been outside the law.
I've been cheating,
Evened up a score.

(Chorus)
Gotta make tracks, gotta go.
Gotta move on, gotta run.
Gotta make tracks, gotta go.
Gotta move on, gotta keep low

I've learned my lesson
I cannot win in this town
I've been messin'
With things out of bounds.

(Chorus)
She was his pride and joy
I was too blind to see
She was my toy
Now they're after me
7. The Cage
(instrumental)
8. Love Potion No. 9
I took my troubles down to Madame Rough
You know that gypsy with the gold cap tooth
She''s got a pad down at 34th and Vine
Sellin'' little bottles of
Love potion #9


I told her that I was a flop with chicks
I been this way sinces 1956
She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign
She said what ya'' need is
Love potion #9

She bent down and turn around and gave me a wink
She said I''m gonna'' make it up right here in the sink
It smelled like turpentine and looked like India ink
I held my nose I closed my eyes
I took a drink

I didn''t know if it was day or night
I started kissing everything in sight
But when I kissed a cop down at 34th and Vine
He broke my little bottle of
Love potion #9


Love potion #9
Love potion #9
Love potion #9
9. You Always See What You Want
You can smile,
When things are going your way.
You can laugh,
When luck smiles down on you.
Succes is sweet,
And failure so bitter.

(Chorus)
You always see what you want to see,
You always believe what you want.
You always see what you want to see,
You always believe what you want to believe

There's no right,
And no wrong in your eyes.
There's no good,
and no bad as long as you are right.
No heaven or hell,
At the end of the line.

(Rep chorus + 1st verse)
10. Danger In Paradise
Fire in the sky
Cause she hung me out to dry
And the tears I cry are falling like the rain

Tried to visualise just how she's done it
I acted like a kid outta school
She just played the game and now she's won it
And I just played the fool.

(Chorus)
I'm in danger in paradise
Livin' in the sun and feeling cold as ice
I'm in danger in paradise
My castle's in the sand will soon be sacrified
To the sea

Letters in the sand
Written by devils hand
But my eyes were blind couldn't read the prophecy

Tried to visualise just how she's done it
I acted like a kid outta school
She just played the game and now she's won it
While i just played the fool

(Chorus)

I believed i found you
Caged without a friend
The world i built around you
Is crashing to its end

(Chorus + ad lib finish)
11. The Actor
You thought you were the master of your life.
You thought you had it all worked out.
But times have changed and days don't seem
So Sweet.
Don't let the floor drop out from your world

The lights go on and the story seems so old,
You've seen this on T.V. so many times.
But now you are the actor living out the role,
There's no cameras there, no script to keep
the hero whole..

(Chorus)
You are the actor
The lights upon the stage,
You are the actor
The encores never came

And when your brothers lie in pieces on the ground,
You shed your tears, say you didn't realise.
And when the righeous pin the medals
On your shirt,
Do you think that god will shake your head?

You are the actor,
The curtains never closed,
You are the actor,
The story's never told
You are the actor
You're living on the role
You are the actor -
