. . .


You woke up in the rusted frame
Burned out old Deville
Your legs are shot and they're flushed with pain
But you can't keep them still
The sun sets and you're afraid
Of the itching in your skin
You stumble down the boulevard
Of neon encrusted temples
You're looking for the grace of God
In the arms of a fellow stranger
Disciples hand you catalogues and concubines
As you stumble down the boulevard crying "Hosanna"

Welcome to fabulous
Welcome to fabulous
Las Vegas
Give us your dreamers, your harlots and your sins
Las Vegas
Didn't nobody tell you the house will always win?

Cameras on the ceiling tile no place for you to hide
So hunt a seven and you're looking for shade
That no palm tree can provide
But there's a little girl you remember back in Tennessee
You have this reoccuring dream
Where you see her playing hide and seek
With a woman who used to know you very well

Sunsets and neon lights
Call girls and neon lights
Black jack and lady luck
Cocaine and lady luck
You call upon her on holy knees tonight

In Las Vegas
Give us your dreamers, your harlots and your sins
Las Vegas
Didn't nobody tell you?
Didn't nobody tell you?
Didn't nobody tell you the house will always win?

. . .


Look back in silence
The cradle of your whole life
There in the distance
Losing its greatest pride

Nothing is easy, nothing is sacred, Why?
Where did the vow break?
It happened before your time
And there were people there, lovely as you'd ever care, tonight
Baby you can start again
Laughing in the open air, have yourself another dream, tonight
Maybe we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh

Mother it's cold here
Father thy will be done
Thunder and lightning are crashing down
They got me on the run, direct me to the sun
Redemption keeps my covers clean, tonight
Maybe we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh

And the sun will shine again
And the sun will shine again
Are you looking for the sign?
Are you confident?

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows on your own, oh

Only the young can
Lost when the wind blows
Only the young can
Lost when the wind blows

Are you confident?

You let me in to your life unaware that there was magic and fire in the night
And back then I was just a little boy
I made mistakes that caused you so much pain
All I know is that I'm older now

Some people think that it's best to refrain from the conventions of old-fashioned love
Their hearts are filled with holes and emptiness
They tell themselves that they're too young to settle down
Girl I promise you I'm older now

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
In telling myself that I can roll with the changes

And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see,
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

I wasn't looking when we built these walls
When we spread my dreams at your feet
Let's not let times build the flood rise
Before my thoughts begin to run
I think I'm getting older now

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
In telling myself that I can roll with the changes

And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see,
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

Can't stand the thought of another,talking to you sweet my dear
Where would I be tonight if you hadn't held me here, in your arms?

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
In telling myself that I can't roll with the changes

And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see,
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

. . .


Is there anyone out there?
Somewhere I can belong
Man this city just ain't so kind tonight

I need a place to take refuge
See I been loving you blind
I guess that made it hard for me to find

Now we were caught up in the middle of a worn out dream
I knew we were in trouble but baby I almost screamed
When I saw you dancing
On the moon now
I watched him spin you round and round
Why did you role your dice? And show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're flying away, while I'm stuck here on the ground

Is there anyone out there?
Somewhere I can belong
Can the city just stay so kind, tonight

And if I had my suspicions
I kept them out of my heart
Just wished I would of known right from the start

That you'd be speaking in riddles and you'd never coming back
You know I know we were in trouble but honey I almost cried
When I saw you dancing
On the moon now
I watched him spin you round and round
Why did you role your dice? And show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're out on the wind and I'm still waiting to be found

You did a fine job of hiding
That crooked ace up your sleeve
You doubled down my direction
You kissed me on the cheek and leave
I followed you through the darkness
I followed you through the cold
Women I tell you one thing
You're gonna wish you could go back and fold

Why did you role your dice? Show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're flying away, while I'm stuck here on the ground

Why did you role your dice? Show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're out on the wind and I'm still waiting to be found

Will I ever win?
Only time will tell
You got something to remember I will
our ordeals never really marched in time
That's the bottom line
Jilted lovers and broken hearts

. . .


Daddy I'm not gonna tell you that I'm sorry
But there ain't nothing you can do to change my mind
I'm not here to know the things I cannot do
We've seen the outcome of the boys who didn't fly

That road outside that you've been taking home forever
That'll be the same road that I take when I depart
These charcoal veins that hold this chosen land together
May twist and turn but somewhere deep there is a heart

Playing with fire
You know you're gonna hurt somebody tonight
And you're out on the wire
You know we're playing with fire

Perhaps this calling as the channel of invention
I will not blush if others see it as a crime
However dangerous the road, however distant
These things won't compromise the will of the design.
Ten thousand demons hammer down with every footstep
Ten thousand angels rush the wind against my back
This church of mine may not be recognised by steeple
That doesn't mean that I will walk without a God

Rolling River of Truth, can you spare me a sip?
The Holy fountain of youth has been reduced to a drip
I've got this burning belief in salvation and love
Its not you make me naive, but when push comes to shove
I will till this ground

You know you're gonna hurt somebody tonight
(oh, oh, oh ....)
Out on the wire

I might not get there
This little town, this little house,
They seem to be leaning in the wrong direction

I'm not afraid of you no more (oh-oh, oh-oh, ...)

Playing with fire
You know you're gonna hurt somebody tonight
And you're out on the wire
You know you're playing with fire

(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ...)

Me and Valentina went down to the chapel but the gates were shut
I had my vows on my pocket and my gold plated ring for my honey love
We headed down Tropicana to the corner with a late night restaurant
We sat close from each other when I looked her in the eyes there was something gone

[Chorus]
Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept here
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'll do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of a blue moonlight
You got me on my knees
Valentina this is not like you

I got a job in the nugger and I'll save a thousand dollars for a brand new start
She said: I didn't wanna do it but I did it cuz I didn't want to break your heart
The way they whisper when they said we had to take the conversation to the parking lot
Please baby, please Valentina, baby you're everything I got

[Repeat Chorus]

I heard the church bells ringing in my head and I'd take them everywhere I'd go
Valentina met a deal and I heard they had a baby five months ago

Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept here
If you leave me hanging I don't know what I'll do
It doesn't matter who's wrong or right
In the clear of a blue moonlight
You got me on my knees
Valentina don't say it's true
This is not like you

. . .


Please don't tell me I can't make it
It aint gonna do me any good
And please don't offer me your modern method
By fixing the carpets out of wood

From long alleys to Magdalena
There are 60 miles of sacred road
And the promise is made to those who venture
San Francisco lift your load

In the land of old Sonora
A shallow river valley cries
The summer left her without forgiveness
It's mirrored in her children's eyes

(...) sons and wayward daughters
Carry mandalas that they made
He delivered from the debts of darkness
And born again by candlelight
And born again my candlelight

Blisters on my feet
Wooden rosary
A (...) in my pocket as I ran

A bullet in the night
A feather of his life
San Francisco do you understand

Tell them that I've made the journey
And tell them that my heart is true
Not like his blessing or forgiveness
Before the angels send it through

And I will know that I am clean know
And I will dance and the band will play
And the old (..........................)
(.........................................)

And if I should fall to temptation
Will I return to evil throws(?)
From long alleys to Magdalena
As a two time beggar I will go
And I know I can't be forgiven the broken heart of Mexico

. . .


There's a still in the street outside your window
You're keeping secrets on your pillow
Let me inside, no cause for alarm
I promise tonight not to do no harm
I promise you babe, I will do you no harm

And we're caught up in the crossfire of Heaven and Hell
And we're searchin' for shelter

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Watching your dress as you turn down the lights
I forget all about the storm outside
Dark clouds roll their way over town
Heartache and pain came a-pouring down like hail, sleet and rain, yeah
They're handing it out

And we're caught up in the crossfire of Heaven and Hell
And we're searching for shelter

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

And tell the Devil that he can go back from where he came
His fiery arrows drew their beating vein
And when when the hardest part is over, we'll be here
And our dreams will break the boundaries of our fear
The boundaries of our fear

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down... next to mine.

. . .


When the lights go down in the city, getting real low
Settling in my room,I'm unnoticed
When the still comes in through my window letting me go
I feel calm, come over me, on the floor

On the floor
Where the rats all come away clean
There on the floor
Where the children all stomp and scream straight out the door
Well I find myself on my knees
Begging please

When the lights go down in the city and everyone goes, to their room
Walking their trail to dreamland
When the lights go down in the city, something is roaring
I find myself waiting to believe

On the floor
Where the mice call shots in the corner that's where I'll be
When the crickets come home and sing their symphony
'Til I find myself on my knees
Begging please

On the floor
Facing the things I've done here on the floor
Where the years have gathered and run that's where I'll be
And I find myself on my knees
Begging please

. . .


Seek out the light between
Time and confusion glowing up ahead
Instead of slipping through
You bit off more, much more than you could chew

You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready
Slow down

We had a lot to learn
Table manners and grace, how to wait your turn
When time came to clear your slate
You had too much, had too much on your plate

You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready now
Slow down

Take your medicine and crawl before you walk
Think it through before you open your mouth to talk
Be an advocate of joy
Find your little heart's desire

Follow it
Woah, baby you're not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready
Slow down
Baby, you're not ready

You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready
Slow down and take the time to evolve
You could not swallow it
No, baby you're not ready now
Slow down

No no, no no
Don't be afraid
This is your year
It's gonna be all right
You're a performer
Just take your time
But not too much time
No no, no no

. . .


A teacher had you write a letter, you were eight years old
About the man that you'd become and the positions you'd hold
But this was long before you and Jackie Jaronimo met
In the Prelude Park at midnight
Now when it came to bells and whistles Jackie did not like
And when she kissed you on the kisser, boy, you kissed her back
Now you tell her that you love her
And she cuts you slack when you drink with your buddies on the weekend

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
You spend your whole life dropping nickles in the bucket
Waking up at dawn
And while Jackie displayed the joys of finger licking
That clock up on the wall was a tickin'

You got yourself a job cleaning hospital floors
While Jackie had a baby and she had five more
They pay you just enough to drag your ass to the store
To buy bread, milk and better homes and gardens
Jackie flips the pages and she dreams little dreams
A cottage in the country built with real wood beams
There's a baby in the bedroom, he's starting to scream
She holds him, though he probably won't remember

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
Sometimes dreams are all you've got
To keep you going when the day gets long
And you gave up so many just to make a living
That clock up on the wall was a tickin'

Now the kids were all grateful when they left the nest
And Jackie wasn't perfect but she did her best
She sees the opportunity to get you some rest
But you can't sleep on the account of screaming grandkids
The golden years are meant to leave a gleam in your eye
You're starting to discover it's a great big lie
They work you like a dog until you quit or you die
But you can't quit because Jackie needs the benefits

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
They say patience is a virtue
But the doctor says she don't have long
You stood up and tried your damndest not to listen
But that clock up on the wall was a tickin'

When they told you to clear the room, that's when it hit you
You watched as a caravan took your sweetheart away
The arguments and the fights and money troubles seem so worthless as
As the kids throw yellow roses on her grave

And the weeks fly by and the years roll on
The house is quiet now and everything inside it seems to know she's gone
There's a picture of you both, sixteen years old, just kissing
And that clock up on the wall was a tickin'

You always thought she had a chance
That there was somewhere she hid
And now you've come to the conclusion that she never did
Have a chance, that is

. . .


Slow down your mind
Fill the unknown spaces with truth and lie
If you can find the time
And time seems so slow
Now we're stuck here asking "where did it go?"
(And where do we come from?)
And what are we here for?

There we were looking out some country window
And although we had our problems, we were fine
The sky was blue and the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet, I will fly

Summer time, so sweet
The luxuries of childhood were on our feet
In the sun sun sun
So, baby, run run run
Baby, run run run
Games will be portrayed

There we were looking out some country window
And although we had our problems, we were fine
The sky was blue and the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet, I will fly
The sky was blue and the night was all I wanted
Let me be your comet, I will fly

Up into Jacksonville
Up into monorail
I felt some others love
I'd seen the colours change
I cried a million tears
I caused a million more
Up into Jacksonville

There we were looking out some country window
And although we had our problems, we were fine

. . .


I came here thinking I could ease the pain
I came inspite of other's good advice
I came here thinking sweet, sweet revenge
Bring me some sugar, let the games begin

I made a lot of bad decisions
But tonight I'm breaking through
I came here to get over you

I had this dream about a wild bird
Black feathered, picking at your beating heart
You reach for me and shout "I need your love!"
Your tomb collapses when I call your bluff
Picking at your heart strings, I need your love

I started shaking when you told me
That you'd found somebody new
I came here to get over you

And the lights are burning like kerosene
I can't stop thinking about you and me
Did you cross your fingers when you told me you'd be true?

I came here to get
I came here to get
I came here to get over you
I came here to get over you
I came here to get over you
I came here to get over you

I made a lot of bad decisions
But tonight I'm breaking through

. . .


Asked by the door to get to heaven
Seven trumpets big and bright
You hear it coming in the middle of the night
A caution to the children
Time to turn your crimson white
We've all got reservations
Trials will come suddenly
And without explanation
But you were born with goodness
You were born with goodness wherever you go

I'm right behind you in the light of hope
I'll be beside you on that dusty road
And if you get by, well that's alright
Wicked winds blow with grace and might
Cling to the ways of my name
When you touch the star

I break your word over me
Sinking in the quicksand
Break your word, but don't you see
You're breaking me down now?

I'm right behind you in the light of hope
I'll be beside you on that dusty road
When no one expects you to deny
And no one accepts your reasons why
You cling to the ways of my name
When you touch the star
No one expects you to deny
And no one accepts your reasons why
You cling to the ways of my name
When you touch the star
