1. "Night Life"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

Wake up in time to see the sun going down
Turn on the six o'clock news
To see what's happening in this town

I take a walk, down, to the corner
I meet those bad girls hangin' 'round
Never doing what they oughta

Ooh yeah, I get caught up in the action
Gotta find the main attraction now
Gotta get some satisfaction
You better take me to the heart of that

Night life, looking for some
Night life, need a little
Night life, living in the daylight
Just don't agree with me, oooh, night life

Stealing through the night like a wolf on the prowl
Not a bird, not a plane
I'm just a mean old night owl

Watch me hit, run, gotta move on
Going wild in the night
'Cause I'm hooked on the neon

Ooh yeah, I'm looking for some action
I gotta find my main attraction now
'Cause I need some satisfaction
Ooh, won't you take me to the heart of that

Night life? A little bit of
Night life, ooh I need some
Night life, full of bright lights and noise
It's time to separate the men from the boys

Night life, ain't talkin' about no high life cabaret
Night life, I need something, just something to put me away
Night life, you holdin' me and the noise
Time to separate the men from the boys

Night life, it can get kinda rough
Night life, we'll see who's standing when the sun comes up
Night life, yeah the skyscrapers, but the
Night life, is a formal attraction
Night life, yeah, c'mon, c'mon
Night life, ooh ooh-ooh
Night life, anything goes
Night life, having the time of my
Night life, all in a day
Night life, we're all crazy baby
Night life, you got, ooh-ooh ooh, you better got in the
Night life, hey

2. "Juke Box Hero"
(L. Gramm / M. Jones)

Standing in the rain, with his head hung low
Couldn't get a ticket, it was a sold out show
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream

He heard one guitar, just blew him away
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day
Bought a beat up six string, in a secondhand store
Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure

That one guitar, felt good in his hands
Didn't take long, to understand
Just one guitar, slung way down low
Was a one way ticket, only one way to go

So he started rockin'
Ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
Someday gonna make it to the top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a juke box hero, he took one guitar
Juke box hero, stars in his eyes
Juke box hero, (stars in his eyes)
He'll come alive tonight

In a town without a name, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow, by the backstage door
Like a trip through the past, to that day in the rain
And that one guitar, made his whole life change

Now he needs to keep on rockin'
He just can't stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
Yeah, juke box hero, stars in his eyes
With that one guitar, (stars in his eyes)
He'll come alive, come alive tonight

Woah

Yeah, he's gotta keep on rockin'
Just can't stop
Gotta keep on rockin'
That boy has got to stay on top

And be a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
He's a juke box hero, got stars in his eyes
(Just one guitar) juke box hero, (aah aah aaah) got stars in his eyes
He's just a juke box hero, aah aah aaah
Juke box (stars) hero, (stars, stars) juke box hero, (stars, stars) he's got stars in his eyes
Stars in his eyes

3. "Break It Up"
(M. Jones)

Made myself a prisoner
I locked myself away
Can't remember the last time
I saw the light of day

Don't want to face life
Feel I've been betrayed
I want you to tell me
Where our love went astray

So can't you wait, one more minute?
Why can't you wait, one more day?
Let's get it straight, 'cause it's a big mistake
You better think about it

I don't want to break it up, ah-ah-aah
Why do we have to break it up? Ah-ah-aah
Never ever want to break it up, (ah-ah-aah) oh no
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) I only wanna, make it up tonight, ah-ah-aah-aaah

You say you've thought about it
But you sound so cold
You make it look like our love
Can be bought or sold

(Aaaaah-aaah) you won't listen
You say it's way too late
(Aaaaah-aaah) that something is missing
And now you just can't wait

Why can't you wait one more minute?
Why can't you wait? Give me one more day
Let's get it straight, this is a big mistake
We better think about it

I don't want to break it up, ah-ah-aah
Why do we have to break it up? Ah-ah-aah
Never ever want to break it up, (ah-ah-aah) oh no
I only wanna, (ooh-ooh-ooh) make it up tonight

So don't say break it up, (ah-ah-aah) break it up
I wanna hear you say we'll make it up, (ah-ah-aah) make it up
I don't want to break it up, (ah-ah-aah) ooh baby
Why can't we, (ooh-ooh-ooh) make it up tonight?
Make it up tonight? Make it up tonight?

And I ask myself, what's wrong with me?
How could I be so blind?
I know she tried to give me everything
But I still couldn't see
Now as I watch our love slip away
I'm begging you, begging you, please

Don't break it up, break it up
Take a little time and make it up, make it up
I don't want to break it up, (ah-ah-aah) oh no
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) I only wanna make it up tonight, ah-ah-aah, ah-ah-aah
I don't want to break it up, ah-ah-aah
Baby let me make it up, ooh-ooh-ooh
Oh no no, ah-ah-aah, no no
Ah-ah-aah, (I) ah-ah-aah, don't want to break it up, oh no
Not tonight, ah-ah-aah
Make it up, (only make it up) ah-ah-aah, oh yeah
Only make it up, ah-ah-aah, make it, make it up
Ooh, ah-ah-aah

4. "Waiting For A Girl Like You"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

So long
I've been looking too hard, I've waiting too long
Sometimes I don't know what I will find
I only know it's a matter of time

When you love someone
When you love someone

It feels so right, so warm and true
I need to know if you feel it too

(Aaah-aaah) maybe I'm wrong
(Aaah-aaah) won't you tell me if I'm coming on too strong?
(Aaah-aaah) this heart of mine has been hurt before
(Aaah-aaah) this time I wanna be sure

I've been waiting, for a girl like you (you-ooh-ooh) to come into my life, life
I've been waiting, for a girl like you, (waiting for a girl) and a love that will survive
I've been waiting (I've been waiting) for someone new (new) to make me feel alive, ah-ah
Yeah, waiting for a girl like you (waiting for a girl) to come into my life

Aaah-aaah
Aaah-aaah

You're so good
When we make love it's understood
It's more than a touch or a word we say
Only in dreams could it be this way

When you love someone
Yeah, really love someone

(Aaah-aaah) now I know it's right
(Aaah-aaah) from the moment I wake up till deep in the night
(Aaah-aaah) there's no where on earth that I'd rather be
(Aaah-aaah) than holding you, tenderly

I've been waiting, for a girl like you (you-ooh-ooh) to come into my life, life
I've been waiting, for a girl like you, (waiting for a girl) and a love that will survive
I've been waiting (I've been waiting) for someone new (new) to make me feel alive, ah-ah
Yeah, waiting (waiting) for a girl like you (waiting for a girl) to come into my life

Oooh-oooh, oooh-oooh, I've been waiting
Aaah-aaah, (waiting for you) oooh-oooh, oooh
(Aaah-aaah) oooh-oooh, I've been waiting
(Waiting) I've been waiting, yeah
I've been waiting for a girl like you, I've been waiting
Won't you come into my life? (Life?) My life?
(It's been so long) I've been waiting for a girl like you
I've been waiting, (I've been waiting) oh-oh

5. "Luanne"
(L. Gramm / M. Jones)

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

I wait around for you after school
You slip away and I don't see you
Don't know what I'm gonna do
If you can't see how much I need you

We met, one day
And then, you ran away
I've searched the whole town looking for you
I know you're there somewhere

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

I write letters that I never send
I keep the words to whisper to you someday
I don't know where and I don't know when
Luanne I'm gonna get to you someway

I want, to feel
Your love so close to me
Give me just half a chance
To prove myself, I need to

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

These days (these days) true love is so hard to (find) find
(Someday) someday, I know you're gonna be (mine) mine
Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, oh-ooh-oooh

Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

Luanne, tu-ru-ru, (tu-ru-ru) Luanne, tu-ru-ru, tu-ru-ru
Don't need to run and hide
Luanne, tu-ru-ru, (tu-ru-ru) Luanne, tu-ru-ru, tu-ru-ru
Don't keep your love inside

Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, Luanne
(Ooh-oooh) I wanna be beside you, can't you understand?
Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, Luanne
Give me a little of love, I know you can

Luanne, eh Luanne?
Can't you hear me calling, Luanne?

6. "Urgent"
(M. Jones)

You're not shy, you get around
You wanna fly, don't want your feet on the ground
You stay up, you won't come down
You wanna live, you wanna move to the sound

Got fire, in your veins
Burnin' hot, but you don't feel the pain
Your desire, is insane
You can't stop, until you do it again

But sometimes I wonder as I look in your eyes
That maybe you're thinking of some other guy
But I know, yes I know, how to treat you right
That's why you call me in the middle of the night

You say it's urgent, so urgent
So-oh-oh urgent...
Just you wait and see, how urgent
My love can be, it's urgent...

You play tricks, on my mind
You're everywhere, but you're so hard to find
You're not warm, or sentimental
You're so extreme, you can be so temperamental

But I'm not looking for a love that will last
I know what I need and I need it fast
Yeah, there's one thing in common that we both share
That's a need for for each other anytime, anywhere

It gets so urgent, so urgent
You know it's, urgent
I wanna tell you it's the same for me, ooh-oooh
So-oh-oh urgent...
Just you wait and see, how urgent
Our love can be, it's urgent...

You say it's urgent
Make it fast, make it urgent
Do it quick, do it urgent
Gotta rush, make it urgent...
Want it quick
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent, emergency
So urgent, emergency
Emer ooh-oooh, emer ooh-oooh, emer ooh-oooh
It's urgent...
So urgent

7. "I'm Gonna Win"
(M. Jones)

Another dark night, in the city
And my prospects lookin' thin
The survival, of the fittest
Is the law, in the world I live in

I was not born, to be a fighter
But now's the time I have to learn
To keep my head, above the water
Gotta play with fire, but not get burned

I gotta stand up, I gotta face it
Don't want to lose it
I want to taste it while it's hot
Don't want to waste it, I need it so bad

I'm gonna win, yeah, I'm gonna win
You see, it's a matter of pride
Deep down inside
I'm gonna win, yeah, I'm gonna win

I got no time, to sit and wonder
I got myself, to reckon with
Yeah, and life won't drag me under
Even if it takes, all I have to give

I'll give it all

I gotta stand up, I gotta face it
Don't want to lose it
Oooh, I want to taste it while it's hot
Don't want to waste it, my mind's made up

I'm gonna win, I'm gonna win
I tell you, see, when it comes down to the crunch
I've gotta beat life to the punch
I'm gonna win, somehow I know I'm gonna win
You know, I've got to fight to stay alive
Kick it in, to overdrive
I'm gonna win, ooh-ooh-ooh, I'm gonna win

I-I-I'm gonna win, I'm gonna win
You see, it's a matter of pride
Deep down inside
I'm gonna win, gonna win, (gonna win)
Ooh-oooh, I'll pay the price, (gonna win)
No more Mr. Nice, (gonna win)
Hey, just, watch me roll the dice
I'm gonna win, win, win
I'm gonna win, win, gonna win
I'm gonna win, I know I'm gonna win

8. "Woman In Black"
(M. Jones)

I knew the moment, I walked through that door
I felt so close to a burning sensation
It got so warm, as I moved across the floor
My body aching, with anticipation

I saw a dark silhouette at the table
I tried to talk, but I was unable
She drew me in, right, under her spell
I was hypnotized by the sudden temptation

Of that woman in black, she's a mystery
She's everything, a woman should be
Woman in black, she's got a hold on me
She's in control, she won't set me free

She is a woman, she's not a girl anymore
The kind that stirs up a young man's imagination
She's dressed to kill, and I'm so ready to fall
Into her world full of strange fascination

I see that dark silhouette at the table
I can't resist, my body's not able
She draws me in, but she teaches me well
I don't need any explanation

From that woman in black, she's a mystery
She's everything, a woman should be
I said, woman in black, got a hold on me
She's in control, she won't set me free

Ooh ooh-ooh, woman in black
It's too late now, I can't turn back
Yeah I'm a fool for that woman, that woman in black
Ooh ooh-ooh, woman in black

Ooh ooh-ooh, that woman in black, she's a mystery
She's everything, a woman should be
That woman in black, she's got a hold on me
She's in control, she won't set me free

(Oooh-oooh) she's my mysterious mistress, woman in black
She leaves me so helpless, that woman in black
(Oooh-oooh) she's a dark seņorita, my woman in black
(Oooh-oooh) no Sunday school teacher, my woman in black
(Oooh-oooh) we're keeping it a secret, we meet in the night
We're partners in silence, (oooh-oooh) strangers in daylight
My woman in black, ooh ooh-ooh, my woman in black

9. "Girl On The Moon"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

It's night, again
Time for my mind to go wandering
Off on a journey, through space and time
In search of a face I can never find
So I close my eyes and look inside

I can't, forget
The night that I saw her we never met
She felt so close to me as I reached for her hand
She drifted away like the desert sand
It was her, and she was gone

I wish she'd, come back tonight
Like a, star shining bright
I don't know where she's from

She's like a, a girl on the moon, a girl on the moon
She's like a, a girl on the moon, a girl on the moon

Yes it's night, once again
And that same old feeling is setting in
It all seems so familiar but I hope this time
That the girl on the moon will soon be mine
All mine, tonight

Am I asking too much?
Should I leave my dream untouched?
Should I even know where she's from?

My, girl on the moon, she's my girl on the moon
Girl on the moon, my girl on the moon
Girl on the moon, girl on the moon
Girl on the moon, girl on the moon
Girl on the moon, fille sur la lune
Girl on the moon, fille sur la lune
Girl on the moon

10. "Don't Let Go"
(M. Jones / L. Gramm)

Another long day, another long night
I try to make it home before it gets light
I'm working hard so some day we can play
But when I try to explain, you just push me away, ah-ah-aah
Don't push me away, ah-ah-aah

You say, I don't spend enough time with you
Or take any interest in the things you do
We call it quits almost every other day
And the rare times we're going strong we let our pride get in the way, ah-ah-aah
Seems like it's always in the way, ah-ah-aah

But don't let go, don't let our love go
Don't let go, just let our love grow
Sometimes we might drift away, don't let our love go
But don't let go, of our love when it feels right

This kinda life can put us both to the test
But it's not a question of who knows best
Our love's a ship that has its sails a little torn
All we need to do is sew 'em up, and we can weather the storm, ah-ah-aah
Gonna ride that storm, ah-ah-aah

So don't let go, don't let our love go
Don't let go, just let our love grow
Sometimes we might drift away, don't let our love go
But don't let go

No, no, don't let go, don't let our love go
Don't let go, just let our love grow
Sometimes we might drift away, don't let our love go
Don't let go, of our love when it feels right

I don't see you for days
When you leave me in the dark
My imagination runs away
Just throw me a line
And I, I'll still hold on
I'll still hold on
I'll still hold on
And I won't let go

Don't let go, don't let our love go
Baby don't let go, just let our love grow
Don't let our love fade away, don't let our love go
Don't let go, of our love when it feels right

Oh no, don't let our love go
Don't let go, just let our love grow
Sometimes we might slip away, don't let our love go
But don't let go, of our love when it feels right
