Tip Of My Fingers


Gimme your attention, all you victims of the road.
Gonna shout from the mountain, teach you all you need to know.
No guilty feelings, no obsenity, just a chain reaction,
Shooting down from you to me.
Tip of my fingers, tip of my tongue.
Tip of my fingers, to the tip of my tongue.
Take you by the numbers, pickin it one by one.
Got to crawl 'fore you walk, and walk before you run.
Go on get a little closer, soon your gonna see.
That chain reaction, is the way it's gotta be.
Outside the naked city whispers tonight.
With a cast of a thousand rhythms slowly composing the light.
Listen to it once again...
I got this feeling, it's all been arranged.
I got this feeling, it's all pre-arranged.
This town's gonna know my name, I am Kid.
See me with a spray can, you best just look away.
Gonna stick like voodoo, don't you try to get away.
Cause when the walls start to crumble,
There's one thing you're gonna see.
That chain reaction, shooting down from you to me.

Here When I Need You

 

There's talk that you might be leavin'. That's all right.
Cause if I know you, like I think I do. That won't be right.
Leave you on the back step singing Ave Maria.
One thing I've got to be sure. That's alright.
There's talk that you might want my money. I know that ain't so.
You're here tonight, and I know I ain't got none.
Maybe that's the reason, babe. I am near. One thing I've got to be sure.
You're here when I need you. Here when I need.
I know one thing. One thing I know. Lovin' you is alright.
There's one on my left, one on my right.
One thing I know, is you're with me tonight.
Take what you want, take it away.
As long as you're here, you're gonna stay.

So Hard

 

Outside the road appears, I glimpse the other side.
Never thought we'd ever make it here.
Now the time has come, to lead this troop away.
I never thought we'd ever make it here.
You can say what you want to. But I never thought you'd lie for me.
So hard, never once found it so. So hard to be my love.
So hard, never once found it so. So hard, to stand all alone.
Time and time again, I knew we'd make it. Said I never would let it go.
But if ever was a time, I didn't need you here, I won't last that long.
Time and time again, I feel it slip from my hands.
All those shattered dreams I left behind.
But when the tide comes up, and tees off on me.
You know I had me one hell of a ride, yeah.
Take what you want to. I've taken so much time from you.

Maybe

 

...I can't feel you. I can't feel you no more. I can't see you.
The sight of your face brings me down. Maybe I don't want to be around.
I've got reasons. I've got reasons to cry. Maybe I just wanna say good-bye.
Maybe I don't wanna be, the one who sits here as you bide your time.
Wish I could remember what I was dreaming of.
Cause I knew better than to think it was love.
You took the trick, trumped all the cards in my hand.
You got what you wanted, but that's not enough.
And I know better than to think that's love.
You could be different, but I never wanted to be... in love.

Safe(Till The Morning)

 

I'm down at the end of my rope. Darlin' won't you stay with me.
Grew up lonely, full of cuts and bruises, yeah.
You've been run through the mill with the jerks and losers.
Past the dumpsters, and the burned out trash.
You'll see their faces blowing in the ash.
From your window, see the jungle junkies grow.
See them take their places, in a daze you ought to know.
Dry your eyes, cause I'm always near. Just a call can get you out of here.
Cause I know that I'm gonna be. Safe, till the morning comes.
Safe, till the morning steals the night away.
Judgements harsh from the prosecution, yeah.
With all this talk now of retribution.
Leave your tired eyes by the bedroom door.
Tease the dark, you don't need to see no more.
Cause I know that we're gonna be. Safe, till the morning comes.
I'm down at the end of my rope. Darlin' won't you stay with me...

On And On

 

You, you're looking for something new. Don't know what you hope to find.
And you, you don't have the nerve to say. You're getting carried away.
You'll use it, abuse it, confuse it. Don't you know where that will lead.
Just face it, replace it, erase it. The cost of the damage you're going to pay.
And that smile on your face is just one other way. I know, I know.
You'll keep playing...
On and on. But you'll never find your way.
On and on. Won't you ever find your way.
You, you think you can stop the pain. But your efforts are in vain.
And you, you think it'll work this time. Still the same old line.

Night To Remember

 

Once had a lover with an etch-a-sketch heart.
With a flick of the wrist, I was out of the picture.
Thought it was over, but it'd only begun.
Gonna take more than that to keep me out of it.
Don't shoot the messenger for bearing us the bad news.
Don't you accept the woes, the ones that got away blues.
This could be a night to remember. This could be a night to remember.
How long I've waited for this night to come.
Superstitious things are blowing my mind.
I'm clicking my heels and I'm crossing my fingers.
Jack may be nimble, but Joey be quick.
Gonna take what I can, and get me out of it.
For 30 days I had to beg you just to see me.
I got a feeling, tonight you'll want to be me.
This could be a night to remember. This could be the night, I know somehow.
This could be a night to remember.
How long I've waited for this night to come. Here it comes...
Superstitious things are blowing my way.
The one at the top, he got me stuck in the middle.
I could sit here for hours, just watching time fly.
Gonna sit tight, and wait here till it's all over.
I got some class and some respect for law and order.
I know tonight, I'm gonna walk -- Walk on water.

Thru The Rain

 

...and if my legs should keep me far from you. Leave me helpless with a cane.
I know that you would find the strength for me. Thru the rain.
For I, won't feel it there. I won't find the door.
No I, won't feel it there. Won't make it... thru the rain.
...and if my eyes should falter, blinding me.
No glimpse of light to find my way.
I know you'll be my guide and always be. Thru the rain.
...and when the spirit comes to shut my eyes. You'll see my body slowly turning.
Take a look, I will soon be waiting there. Thru the rain.

Holdin On

 

Day breaks, awakes and finds an empty room.
Thought th heart aches, it'll take some time to heal the wounds.
With every ticking of the clock seems like a day.
Keep hoping that the phone will ring, and take your fears away.
Don't it seem so strange. You'd run away.
Don't it seem so strange. I hope you're holding on.
Staring, at tattered pictures black and white.
Always staring, and fighting back the tears at night.
You feel so helpless, there must be something you could do.
And not a single day goes by, she doesn't think of you.
Searching, you stop to listen, not a sound.
Start to worry, maybe if you'd been around.
She goes to church and lights a candle every day.
And she prays to God, oh keep him safe, and help him on his way.

Cry In The Night

 

I'm looking out for the two of us. I waited in the rain.
All I could feel was frozen emptiness inside. But when, when I looked up.
You weren't alone baby. All I could see were these two empty silhouettes, singing.
Don't you cry in the night. Don't you worry oh no.
When you look down the road. All alone it may get hard.
Talk, don't talk to me. I would have died for you baby.
Maybe, you thought that I would always be around.
But now, now, now you see I'm not that easy baby.
Now that you're back, you think you've washed your sins away. (no way)
Don't you cry in the night. Don't you worry oh no.
When you look down the road. Won't be there for you, baby.
Don't you cry in the night. Don't you worry oh no.
When you look down the road. I won't be there no more.
