1. Fool's Game

When I met you, oh
You know at first you had me so confused
I used to lay awake at night
Just copin' with the feelings I so long refused

Well I surrendered my love
I saw you turn your heart stone cold to ice, darlin'
I put my heart on the line for you
Oh I did, I put my heart on the line, yeah
First you take me to the highest ground
Then you keep me hanging like some foolish clown

[Chorus]
It's such a fools' game, yeah
It's such a fools' game
I keep playing such a fools' game, yeah(forever)
I keep on playin', keep on playin' this fools' game
Yeah, this fools' game

I can't take another sleepless night
It's time to light the fire down inside of you
I don't mind, I have the sun on my back

To get a feeling that you never knew
You never knew
Got the secret in the palm of your hands
Will you keep it woman, will you break this man

[Chorus]

Girl I know, you're playin' full time
But it may be too late, when you make up your mind

You keep me in this fools' game
Forever in your fools' game
You got me caught up in this fools' game
Such a fools' game, oh no, a fools' game
How long will you keep me in this fools' game

2. She Did The Same Thing

I see you finally found a set of rules
That came inside her game, boy
You were so young and very proud
It's hard believin' you're the same, boy

Did she take you so deep into the night
And promise you a piece of her heart
Make it feel so good, feel so right
Then turn around, and tear you apart

[Chorus]
I know, she did the same thing
I know, she did the same thing
I know, she did the same thing to me, oh yeah

She plays upon your dreams and fantasies
As if she's come to stay there
But in your life, you never dreamed
You'd find the one who'd know the way there

She'll take you so deep into the night
And promise you'll be satisfied
Like a fool you believe all her lies
Words you'll remember till the end of your life

[Chorus X2]

The same thing to me, she did the same thing to me
The same thing to me, I know, I know, I know, I know
The same thing to me

3. Hometown Hero

Well alright, you put your heart and your soul on the line
You pay the price, you can leave all your dues behind, yeah
You go spinning your wheels, till just one song makes it right
Live your life on the road, now they call you a star overnight
Overnight, overnight, oh no no

[Chorus]
Gave it all, for it seemed like ages
Lived the life of a rolling stone
Seen the world from a thousand stages
There ain't no feelin', you've ever known
Like when a hometown boy comes home

This guy's a joker, and this is not the key to your found
And there's always somebody, who thinks he makes a living
From putting you down
You're aware of the odds, just forgetting the chance you must take
When you're bound to a vision, there is no decision to make
No no no

[Chorus]

When he comes home
The road is long and you're on your own
But through it all you know your roots run so deep
Out on the rock and roll highway
You make a promise to bring it back home
And that's one promise, you know ya gotta keep

[Chorus]

But it's never gonna feel like
When a hometown boy comes home
He's a hometown hero

4. Can’t Hold On, Can’t Let Go

Every time I think of you
My heart starts movin' like a freight train
And having you is tearing me apart
I don't really need the pain, no

Sometimes I feel like leavin' for good
But I'm a fool who wouldn't leave you
Even if I could

[Chorus]
(Can't hold on, can't let go)
Can't hold on, can't let go
(Can't hold on, can't let go)
I can't hold on, I can't let go

Every time you touch me, well you know
I feel the blood rushing through my veins
Girl you mean so much to me, that's the reason
Why you're driving me insane

Ooh, every night I'm losin' too much sleep
I can't give up, 'cause now I'm in too deep with you

[Chorus]

I can't live with you, I can't live without you
I still don't know just what I'm going to do about you
Heart to heart, I'd never run away
It's time to part, but I can't say good-bye

I love you so much(can't hold on)
Need you so much(can't let go)
But you're tearing me apart(can't hold on)
oh(can't let go)can't let go
(Can't hold on)can't let go
(Can't let go)oh no no

5. Fighting For My Life

Here I am, thinking of you
Things we say and things we do
Doesn't seem long ago
I was holding you so safe and warm

Suddenly my life is changed
And I find myself like a ship in a raging storm
I'm fighting to hold on, will you look at me now

[Chorus]
Fighting for my life, fighting for my life
I'm back against the wall, fighting for my life
Fighting, fighting for my life

I recall, the days of my youth, my head in the air
My back to the truth
Runnin' from the good things I had
My hunger for a piece of the game

Now I find those days are gone
And I'm hanging' on
I know it can never be the same
I'm fighting to hold on, will you look at me now

Ooh yeah ooh oh yeah, baby ooh oh

I've been at the corner for the longest time
I have gone the distance with the will to survive
I tell you one thing, I can't always be right
Gonna live, gonna live every day like it's the last one I got
I'm fighting to hold on

[Chorus]

Fighting for my life, I'm fighting for my life

6. Paradise

The time is right, for the doorway to the open sky
But a moment passing by, we let it slip away
Well we can take the night, to sanctify this burnin'
In an everlasting sight, it's calling us to stay

Here tonight, I can feel the heart of my fantasy
After while, I will reveal the secrets you gave to me
Oh, your love waits so deep for me

[Chorus]
And it's alright, alright here in paradise
I know it's alright, feels so right here in paradise
It's alright, alright here in paradise
I know it's alright, feels so right here in paradise, yeah

In a world outside, the voice of our insanity
The world in all its' madness, is fading like a memory
I long to hold you now, this love of mine will never die
Till there's no space or time, no distance between you and I

There's a fire in my heart that will burn till I find a way
Here inside we can feel what our words were not meant to say
Our words can't pretend to say

[Chorus]

Here tonight I can feel the heart of my fantasy
After while I'll reveal the secret you gave to me
Why did love wait so deep for me

[Chorus]

7. Back in My Arms Again

All day long I hear the telephone ring
Friends calling, giving their advice
From the one I love, I should break away
Those heartaches, you'll bring me one day, oh

I listened to my friends' advice
But it's not gonna happen twice
All advice ever brought my way
Were many long and sleepless nights

[Chorus]
Got you back in my arms again
Right by my side
I got you right back in my arms again
So satisfied

So easy for others to say, that I should let you go
They don't know how strong my love is
But I sure can't get along

It's time I live my life for me
Being happier than I ever knew I'd been
And each time we make romance
I'm thankful for a second chance

[Chorus]

All day long I hear the telephone ring
Friends calling, giving their advice
From the one I love, I should break away
Those heartaches you'll bring me one day

I listened to my friends advice
But it's not gonna happen twice
All advice ever brought my way
Were many long and sleepless nights

[Chorus]

8. Carrie

Carrie is a girl disillusioned by the world and her crazy man
So she takes her vows and she swears no matter how she'll never fall again
Carrie, who can blame you if you find some kind of refuge in your solitude
But there's gotta come a time when your passion for your freedom makes a slave of you
She said wait, wait, wait

[Chorus]

Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run, Carrie, Carrie, don't you hide
What's going on inside
Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run, Carrie, Carrie, don't you hide
What's going on inside

Carrie once again in the company of friends 'Cause she's so alone
Ever so aware of a part of her that no one's ever really known
There will come a day when she'll find a way to fade into the scenery
Carrie are you alive or just going through the motions like you seem to be
She lives in a dream to wait for a dream who waits for tomorrow She said wait, wait, wait
Now Carrie don't you fight it, no don't even try
'Cause in your heart what's been decided just will not be denied
Am I getting through to you all I wanna do for you, is take you for a ride
Oh Carrie, Carrie, Carrie

[Chorus]

Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run

9. I Almost Believed You

You came to me and told me it was over
You assured me you wouldn't need him anymore
But that look upon your face is too familiar
It was long ago, but I've been there before

[Chorus]
And this song is like a movie, that we might as well pretend
From the moment as the camera closes in
Just say it one more time with feeling
One more time like you really mean it
The last time you told me you loved me
I almost believed you

If I'd never realized what I was asking for
I'd be confused upon the the presence of your pain
Though your smile cannot disguise the hurt within you
It appears upon the mention of his name

But most of all the strangest thing
It's hard for me to bear
That the words that should be music to my ears

Say it one more time with feeling
One more time like you really mean it
The last time you told me you loved me
I almost believed it

Sometimes I wish that you'd save that line for someone else
Do you want me to believe what you don't believe yourself
Well let's not talk about it now
In my life I've made mistakes
This is just one chance I'll have to take

So let's carry on with the story
Try and shoot the scene again
As the moment that the camera closes in
Just say it one more time with feeling
One more time like you really mean it
The last time you told me that you loved me

I almost believed you(I almost believed you)
Say it one more time(I almost believed you)
One more time with feeling(I almost believed you)
Almost, I almost believed you
One more time with feeling
