Ravishing

When the sun is burning out
And the night is pouring in
Now is the time to run, run boy
Now is the time to hide

There's nobody out on the beach
There's nobody down in the woods
We're gonna do it alone
We're gonna do it outside-

And I can feel the air it's sticking to our skin so tight
And I can feel there's something special in this air tonight-
-I really got it bad
Tonight I really got it bad
But it's still so good, so good
That I got it at all and it was

Ravishing, ravishing
And I love to see the moonlight
See it shimmer down my dress
It's so ravishing, ravishing
And the wind is like a finger
Tracing patterns on your chest
You're so ravishing

And I know
This is the season that we make our move
This is the season we've got something to prove
And this is the season I've got something to lose
Oh, it's now or it's never
So now and forever, we're

Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-oh-oh
Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-oh-oh
Ravishing, ravishing oh-oh-oh

It's all right
We'll be ravishing each other till the end of this endless night
It's all right, so right, it's all right, so right

And if an angel broke his wings
Would he come to you for parts
I need a couple of wings boy, boy
I need a reason to soar

And if the devil lost his fire
Could he count on you for sparks?
There's something we ought to try now
We ought to try it some more-

-Than anything I ever wanted was to see the light
And there's a chance that we'll be glowing in the dark tonight-

I really got it bad
Tonight I really got it bad
Tonight I really got it bad
But it still felt good-so good-
-Just to get it at all, and it's so

Ravishing, ravishing
And I can't believe the way the stars are shooting through your hair
You're so ravishing, ravishing
And it's just my luck tonight I don't have anything to wear
We're so ravishing

This is the season that we make our move
This is the season we've got something to prove
This is the season I've got something to lose
All we ever really needed was

Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-oh-oh
Ravishing, ravishing
Oh-oh-oh
Ravishing, ravishing oh-oh-oh

It's all right
We'll be ravishing each other till the end of this endless night
It's all right, so right, it's all right, so right

Loving you's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it

[Girl:] When the sky is falling and you're looking round for somewhere to hide
Did you ever call out to someone
Did you ever call out to me, I've never been gone-
I've been right here by your side
There ain't nothin' but clouds
There ain't nothin' but clouds in your eyes

Why don't you believe it when you finally found the truth
You've been drinking poison water from the fountain of youth
Why don't you stop tearing up everyone you need the most
You're so busy trying to get even
You never even try to get close

I can't explain it away
It doesn't make any sense
To know what it's like
I guess you gotta go through it
It doesn't matter baby
Loving you's a dirty job
But somebody's gotta do it

[Boy:] There were times when we'd never fake it
There were times when we'd always make it
There were times when we'd take it to the limit
And we'd never, never, ever leave each other alone
We wee flesh and blood and bone
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

[Both alt:] There were times when we took our chances
There were times we were damn good dancers
There were times when we heard all the answers
In the beating of the drummer and the riches of the rock and the roll
I can see right through your soul
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

[Boy:] If your fears could only be forgotten
We could pull all the barriers down
Would you follow your dream's desire
Would you follow your secret dreams and forbidden fire
Let's just peel out of this town

[Both:] It's been nothing but dreams
It's been nothing but dreams until now
[Boy:] You're never gonna see it
[Both:] You got your head stuck in the sand
[Boy:] It's the land of the free and easy street
[Girl:] It's the home of the damned
[Boy:] You're never gonna see it
[Both:] You better open up your eyes
[Girl:] You're the only one who's left
[Both:] Who's gonna believe all your lies

[Boy:] I can't explain it away
It doesn't make any sense
[Both:] To know what it's like
I guess you gotta go through it
It doesn't matter baby
[Girl:] Loving you's a dirty job
But somebody's gotta do it

[Boy:] There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can't stop missing
There were times that we'd lay in bed and listen
[Both:] To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts
Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

[Girl:] There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars
[Boy:] There were times we extinguished every fire
[Both:] That was burning, burning, burning, up each other alive
From the heavens on down to the dives
There were times we lost it all
There were times we lost it all

There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars

[Both:] There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can't stop missing
There were times that we'd lay in bed and listen
To the pounding, pounding, chorus of our desperate hearts
Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

Rebel without a Clue

You're a tough tail-gunner in a pitch black Chevy
Cruising in the moonlight
Ooh your aim is steady
Your eyes are hungry and your hands are ready
You shot me where you wanted
You put me in a daze

No matter where you go, you'll always be a stranger
Getting into trouble, getting off on danger
Riding out of town like a cool lone ranger
When there's nothing to lose, you gotta call your own plays
Did anybody say something incredibly stupid
Like there isn't any paradise
But I remember the songs and I remember the story
I remember the thrills and I remember the glory

So hold me - hold me in your arms
Deliver me from growing old
Hold me - hold me in your arms
Shelter me from going cold
I'm a shot in the dark without you
A rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue
I don't know what to say and I don't know what to do
Standing on the corner in my boots and my leather
a little over the edge, a little under the weather
Just a rebel without a clue
I'm tired an lonely and crying for you
I know just when to sulk and I know just how to pose
Dirty Harry to Madonna
I've been learning all the roles

So hold me baby, hold me a little longer
Need me baby just a little stronger tonight
Move it darling move a little quicker
Prove it darling blood is really thicker tonight
Drive on darling drive a little farther
Dream on darling dream a little harder tonight
Teach me baby teach me how to love you
Without me you're just another rebel without a clue

It's been a long hot summer and it's just the beginning
So keep our motor running and your tires spinning
So many places that I've wanted to be in
Take me where you're going - away beyond above -
We'll see a little action, relieve a little tension
Stuff I'd like to try that I shouldn't even mention
I've gone so far already - I'm way beyond redemption
There's nothing to it really - I think they call it love

Did anybody say something incredibly stupid
Like there isn't any paradise
But I remember the songs and I remember the story
I remember the thrills and I remember the glory

So hold me - hold me in your arms
Deliver me from growing old
Hold me - hold me in your arms
Shelter me from going cold
I'm a shot in the dark without you
A rebel without a clue

Rebel without a clue
I don't know what to say and I don't know what to do
Standing on the corner in my boots and my leather
A little over the edge, a little under the weather
Just a rebel without a clue
I'm tired and lonely and crying for you
I know just when to sulk and I know just how to pose
Dirty Harry to Madonna
I've been learning all the roles

So hold me baby, hold me a little longer
Need me baby just a little stronger tonight
Move it darling move a little quicker
prove it darling blood is really thicker tonight
Drive on darling drive a little farther
Dream on darling dream a little harder tonight
Teach me baby teach me how to love you
Without me you're just another rebel without a clue

Counterpoint to chorus

Holding out for a Hero

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and dream of what I need

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off feet

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Watching me

Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
