  1. Welcome to the Grand Illusion Come on in and see what's happening Pay the price get your tickets for the show The stage is set, the band starts playing Suddenly your heart is pounding Wishing secretly you were a star But don't be fooled by the radio The t.v. or the magazines They'll show you photographs Of how your life should be But they're just someone else's fantasy So if you think you life is complete confusion Cause you never win the game Just remember that it's a grand illusion And deep inside we're all the same So if you think you life is complete confusion Cause your neighbors got it made Just remember that it's a grand illusion And deep inside we're all the same America spells competition Jjoin us in our blind ambition Get yourself a brand new motor car But someday soon we'll stop to ponder What on earth's this spell we're under We made the grade and still we wonder Who the hell we are!
  2. Ever young, always cool We had our Chevys and our hoola hoops Watchin' Bandstand and Micky Mouse A generation born to twist and shout Hey everybody We were the children shining like gold Transistor sister under my pillow Go Johnny Go New horizons, new frontiers Sons and daughters of our parent's fears Super highways in stereo Make it faster, louder, rock 'n' roll We were dreamin' happy endings Ask anyone Expectations, the generation Born to run I'm a boomchild baby, warn Uncle Sam Boomchild baby, epidemic in the land I'm a boomchild baby, federal case Boomchild baby, just tryin' to find a place All at once, the dreams had stopped Three bullets fired ended Camelot But we kept searchin' for the clues We never knew the world could be so cruel People marchin', people dyin' Carryin' signs Assinations and revelations Blew our minds I'm a boomchild baby, warn Uncle Sam Boomchild baby, epidemic in the land I'm a boomchild baby, born of the bomb Boomchild baby, revolution gone wrong I saw the picture of the flame Thinking back before the world had changed Some reflections make no sense The fall is always hard from innocence Close the door baby, turn the page I do believe we've finally come of age Hittin' thirty just like that I know it's corny but it sure goes fast Hey everybody We are the children mining for gold From the hippies to the yuppies Don't you know I'm a boomchild baby, warn Uncle Sam Boomchild baby, epidemic in the land I'm a boomchild baby, I, me, my Boomchild baby, still tryin' to find the light
  3. Harry's hands are all he's got 8 to 5 in the welding shop Barely finished junior high Took a job at the tool and die And if the weld was double tough Harry had the knack He's the kind of guy Who'd give his friends the shirt right off his back Now Harry doesn't care for booze Or stock reports in the Daily News He likes baseball on T.V. He couldn't understand free agency See he never really wanted much Just a decent life Somewhere he could call his own For his kids and wife And layoffs were a part of life Like taxes, death, and union strikes But this one lasted much too long He was certain now there was something wrong So he went and looked for work in every factory But they were all now servicing in this new economy All at once there came a storm On the ships from foreign shores Smaller cars and VCR's were here to stay Harry cried complacency Can't you see you're killing me The bottom line ain't all that it's cracked up to be Harry's hands keep holding on Harry's heart keeps on beating strong Born and raised in the promised land He still believes that American Harry cried democracy Don't hand me charity I just need a job to save my dignity Every night I pray to God Please help me find a job Untie my hands and let me make my way Harry's hands keep holding on Harry's heart keeps on beating strong Born and raised in the promised land He still believes that American Harry's hands keep holding on Harry's heart keeps on beating strong Born and raised in the promised land He still believes Harry's hands are in the trap As tears turn steel to rusted scrap The furnace cools, the presses stop And Harry stares from the coffee shop See he never wanted much Just the smallest place Somewhere he could call his own In these United States Harry keeps holding on Harry keeps holding on
  4. Over that mountain, straight down this highway Twenty-four hours from you Counting the headlights, billboards and raindrops Somehow I know I'll get through Crossing the border, no danger can stop me Oh Lord how I've been missing you Tonight beneath the moon One million dreams reach out to a star Tonight I'll say a prayer And tell the world how lucky we are Tonight, to be in love I still remember that Sunday in Roseland You came alone to the dance I acted crazy to try and impress you What did I know of romance Two children searching for love and and assurance Each of us afraid in our own way Tonight beneath the moon One million dreams reach out to a star Tonight I'll say a prayer And tell the world how lucky we are Tonight, to be in love One mile to go Oh the anticipation Gonna hold you tight Makin' love all night I know how you feel 'Cause ya hate seperation But I'm down on my knees Please, Baby, please Tonight beneath the moon One million dreams reach out to a star Tonight I'll say a prayer And tell the world how lucky we are Tonight, to be in love
  5. Gravity keeps pulling me down I want to go to Houston, I want to fly to the stars But I may not have the "Right Stuff" to make the trip to Mars 'Cause it's so hard for me to get my weight off the ground Yes, it's that Gravity well, it keeps pulling me down I want to climb Mount Everest and find my Shangri-La Learn the secrets of the Universe from the Wise Man in Nepal But it's so hard for me that mountain's so steep I know my nose will bleed 'cause Gravity don't sleep It don't sleep... (cross the bridge boy) I'm floating...I'm floating...above the crowd No tensions...no pressures...I touch the clouds I'm flying...I'm flying...in ecstasy My problems can't find me...Zero Gravity Gravity keeps pulling me down That Gravity keeps pulling me down I want to be a driver at the Monaco Grand Prix Have the fastest car in Europe, and meet the Royal Family But it's so dangerous--It's not the speed that I fear It's just so difficult to get my motor in gear I want to be a Millionaire, and own a baseball team Have a private jet for shopping trips, and a chauffeured limousine Pay no income tax, and be healthy and sound But it's my Gravity--It keeps holding me down
  6. Heaven knows The time is right I need a change in my direction New excuses, new alibis New ways to chase the same old dream I made my choice I hope I'm right Gonna fix my situation No more chasing after miracles Four-leaf clovers, wishing wells Too many tomorrows I've waited for But I ain't gonna be that fool anymore 'Cause I know The change has gotta come And ready or not I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers I'm gonna shout it to the world Ready or not I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears Stop feeling sorry for myself 'Cause tears ain't gonna help this time Disappointment's been my address I can't believe I let it happen But tell the postman that I've moved for good And I don't live there anymore And ready or not I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers I'm gonna shout it to the world Ready or not I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears Stop feeling sorry for myself These tears ain't gonna help this time Ready or not I'm through with waiting for unanswered prayers I'm gonna shout it to the world Ready or not I'm gonna dry up all my wasted tears Stop feeling sorry for myself These tears ain't gonna help this time
  7. For those who served, whether by choice or chance and have cried "Back To The World" I was lucky you know I wasn't there And I didn't have to go and face my fear But still this hidden pain comes up from the belly of the beast And even ten years past We're haunted now from both sides of the truth And the ghosts of Ðiên Biên Phú This war keeps hangin' on as if it were today 'Cause many a good man died on the road from Têt to Huê They won every battle they fought But the one that raged at home And now the only words that count Are the names carved out in stone As tears fall onto stone Black wall Black wall (My God) Black wall Black wall Sound the bugle boy for a twenty-one gun salute Call for the ticker tape and assemble all the troops Not a word about Dominoes or the horrors of Napalm Let Johnny come marching home and greet him with a prayer and a Psalm For the boys of Vietnam The boys of Vietnam Let him, let him Let Johnny come back to the world Back to the world Back to the world
  8. I've been all around the world In nearly every city London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Toyko I've stood inside the Berlin Wall I've seen the Eiffel Tower One rainy night in Montreal I shouted "Rock-n-roll" I saw a monkey steal the show Way down in Mexico But the southbound Ryan It takes me home The southbound Ryan I love that road People always ask me why I still live in the city Seems half the population Took the bus to Hollywood I just smile at them And say "Baby I like the weather" Maybe it's courage Maybe it's fear Hell all my friends are here This town is a habit I can't break The city on the make The southbound Ryan Damn that road Southbound Ryan Take me home The southbound Ryan Damn that road Southbound Ryan I love that road Southbound Ryan Damn that road Southbound Ryan Take me home Everybody say "Yeah" I said "Yeah"
  9. Babe, there's something suspicious I can sense there's a change in you You give me your lovin', kissin' Say everything's all right I know something ain't cool 'Cause when I say goodnight to you You're a half-a-million miles away And I want to know Will you still be here tomorrow? (Baby don't take the stereo) Babe, I'm getting your message There's been clues lying everywhere You put on your perfume, make-up You're dressing so fine Just to go to the store So if you found somebody who Can give you lovin' more than I Please tell me tonight--Baby, baby Suspicious thoughts keep creeping into my mind I chase them out but there's no way to disguise I look in your eyes for the slightest affection But all I get is your cool, cool rejection Why can't I admit to the writing on the wall Wait a minute, Baby Can't you see I'm headed for a fall I'm headed for a fall Suspicious thoughts keep creeping into my mind I chase them out but there's no way to disguise I call you at work when lunchtime is over You're always late and you're hardly ever sober What I suspect, it makes me feel small Take it easy, Baby Can't you see I'm headed for a fall I'm headed for a fall
  10. Here I am I'm alone in my room again I play my records, and think of you And all the changes that we've been through Well, I know our love grows I know it's true Every time that I look at you I want to tell you how much I care But when I try to the words aren't there So I'm writing you a letter from my heart With all the things I just can't say Oh, Dear Darlin' I'm in love with you And I believe Heaven must have sent you here to find me Darlin' Oh I promise and I swear You've got my love forever Don't think twice I'll be there Oh, I'll be there when you want me I'll be there when you need me I'll be there Here I am Well I'm dreaming of you again The words come easy when you're not here And all my feelings become so clear That I'm sending you a letter from my heart With all the things I just can't say Oh, Dear Darlin' I'm in love with you And I believe Heaven must have sent you here to find me Darlin' Oh I promise and I swear You've got my love forever So don't think twice I'll be there There when you want me There when you need me There when you call me There when you're lonely Darlin' I'll be there when the rain starts fallin' I'll be there just give me a call and I'll be there when you get lonely Don't you know you're my one and only I'll be there
  11. Nobody knows your name Nobody sees you there And when you try your best Nobody seems to care You're afraid you don't fit in You've stopped your trying 'cause you never win no more You really need to tell someone Before you turn and run Not one more sleepless night Not one more word to say No arguments this time You're gonna leave today Distant roads, a stranger's face I know you're searching for a better place Somewhere a second chance is calling you One thing before you go Sound a warning shot Don't just run away Sound a warning shot Love will find the way Ooh you're lonely You're so confused You start believing that it's just no use Somewhere a second chance is calling you One thing before you go Sound a warning shot Don't just run away Sound a warning shot Love is on the way Ooh you're lonely You're so confused You start believing that it's just no use Somewhere a second chance is calling you One thing before you go One thing before you go Sound a warning shot Don't just run away Sound a warning shot Love is on the way
  12. I've got my dreams I know you think that's crazy But I won't give up 'Cause I've got this burning desire in me Oh baby, it's me While the whole world sleeps I sit up all night thinking And making my plans 'Cause there's something special ahead for me Something ahead for me So don't you tell me that I'm wasting my time, ruining my life And that the odds against me are a million-to-one, don't be concerned I'll take the heat for all the chances I'm gonna take Mistakes that I'll make Wait and see You're gonna hear from me So don't wait for heroes, do it yourself You've got the power Winners are losers Who got up and gave it just one more try If you're waiting for that miracle train to call out your name And if you think the rainbow always finds someone else, never yourself Just look inside and find that spark that's burning in you Follow it through The light you find Well, it could change your life So don't wait for heroes Think for yourself Make your own choices You know it's easy To follow the crowd But my advice is Don't wait for heroes Believe in yourself You've got the power Winners are losers Who got up and gave it just one more try Get up! Get up! Get up! Give it just one more try
  13. Rain began to fall softly As she gazed around the room Even now she wondered what went wrong A letter in her hand trembled As she placed it by the phone All at once there were footsteps by the door She didn't want a confrontation To tear them apart She wasn't sure of all the feelings Racing through her heart I looked into her eyes Knowing something wasn't right And suddenly the tears began to show Babe I know that it's wrong But you know I'm really not that strong How I wish I could tell you that I am But before I even read this letter I want you to stay But if I see your mind's made up There's just one thing I've got to say You can call me Baby if you ever change your mind Believe me when I say to you Anytime will be alright You can call me Only seven numbers on the phone Maybe we can talk things over You're never that far from home Oh, no, no, baby you're not along Another season Another change Two hearts are breaking With no one to blame I know the reasons You want to go But if you find that you still want me There's one thing that you know You can call me Baby if you ever change your mind Believe me when I say to you Anytime will be alright You can call me Only seven numbers on the phone Maybe we can talk things over You're never that far from home
  14. "Is this the train to Desert Moon?" was all she said But I knew I'd heard that stranger's voice before I turned to look into her eyes, but she moved away She was standing in the rain Trying hard to speak my name They say first love never runs dry The waiter poured our memories into tiny cups We stumbled over words we longed to hear We talked about the dreams we'd lost, or given up When a whistle cut the night And shook silence from our lives As the last train rolled towards the dune Those summer nights when we were young We bragged of things we'd never done We were dreamers, only dreamers And in our haste to grow too soon We left our innocence on Desert Moon We were dreamers, only dreamers On Desert Moon, On Desert Moon On Desert Moon, Desert Moon I still can hear the whisper of the summer night (How) It echoes in the corners of my heart The night we stood and waited for the desert train All the words we meant to say All the chances swept away Still remain on the road to the dune Those summer nights when we were young We bragged of things we'd never done We were dreamers, only dreamers Moments pass, and time moves on But dreams remain for just as long As there's dreamers, all the dreamers On Desert Moon, On Desert Moon On Desert Moon, Desert Moon
  15. If I knew back then All the things I know today Baby I would not have changed one hour 'Cause I learned so much from my mistakes All the nights we cried And we prayed we'd see the morning light We never thought that we could make it And you were sure you'd never hear me say This is the time This is the moment We've waited so long Just to be standing here We had a dream We made it happen Nobody believed that we could get this far And now, I know that this is our time You never wanted any fortune or fame You said "Baby just give me your heart" And now I'll tell you without any shame That you were right from the start Stayin' together, it ain't easy In a world that changes so fast But take a look around Our feet are squarely on the ground 'Cause we've found a love that can last And it seems so clear I know that this is going to be our year We'll forget about the pain and sorrow And we'll forget about the times we failed This is the time This is the moment We've waited so long Just to be standing here We had a dream My God it happened Nobody believed that we could get this far This is the time This is the moment Nobody believer that we could get this far We had a dream My God it happened Nobody believed that we could last this long And now, I know that this is our time Baby, baby it's our time
