1. Who\'s the Blonde Stranger?

    WHO'S THE BLONDE STRANGER? Nothing like this way out in west Texas
    Galveston Bay is a whole other world
    My wife's in her room getting over her sunburn
    How would Louis Lamore get me next to that girl? She tells me her tan is the same way all over
    She asks me to dance and says, "Keep your boots on"
    She never met a number one cowboy
    We rolled in the sand and drank rum until dawn Who's the blonde stranger"
    Who entered my life"
    Making me over on the moonlight
    This side of Texas is all new to me
    Who's the blonde stranger who lives by the sea? I stayed up all night and for me that's the first time
    Sneak in the room just as cool as I can
    Pull back the sheets and the bed is all empty
    Except for a note left by some guy named Dan My head got all light and the room started spinning
    I stepped outside just to get some fresh air
    Out on a wave was my own darling Lola
    And some pretty boy with bleach in his hair Who's the blonde stranger out there with my wife?
    What were they doing in the moonlight?
    This side of Texas is all new to me
    Who are these strangers who live by the sea? Back on the ranch and everything's normal
    Beach blanket bingo comes on the TV
    We talk in our sleep and then the next morning
    I ask her who's Dan and she asks who's Marie?
  2. When the Wild Life Betrays Me

    WHEN THE WILD LIFE BETRAYS ME Can't believe I'm still here
    With the morning so near
    And last night so unclear I see a trembling hand
    And a cold wedding band
    Wonder where do I stand? When the wild life betrays me
    And I'm too far from home
    Will you be there to save me?
    Will you shelter my heart til I'm strong?
    Or will you just hang up the phone? Will my crazy old lies
    And my worn out disguise
    Turn to tears in your eyes What a fool I have been
    There's no way I can win
    Unless you take me back in When the wild life betrays me
    And I'm too far from home
    Will you be there to save me?
    Will you shelter my heart til I'm strong?
    Or will you just hang up the phone?
  3. Ragtop Day

    RAGTOP DAY The five o'clock Friday blows
    I let it go
    I got to let it go
    I put on my weekend clothes
    Turn on the rock n' roll Throw all our cares away
    It's a ragtop day
    It's a ragtop day Classy little white and red turns everybody's head
    My baby meets me at the Five and Dime
    She's always right on time We roll all our cares away
    It's a ragtop day
    It's a ragtop day Cruise across the county line
    A little dance and dine
    A drive in picture show
    And when the midnight's comin' down
    We're headin' back to town
    She lets her lovin' show Feels like we're the only ones to see the morning sun
    Sleepin' thru the afternoon and risin' with the moon
    Oh don't the stars look bright
    It's a ragtop day
    It's a ragtop day
    We'll throw all our cares away
    I live for that ragtop day
  4. She\'s Going Out of My Mind

    SHE'S GOING OUT OF MY MIND I talk to her picture
    And stare at the wall
    And my friends come and offer their help
    To my back they're afraid I'm losing it all
    To my face they say I'm not myself
    And they name all the doctors they think I should see
    But they don't understand it's not me Chorus
    She's going out of my mind
    And I'm showing all the signs
    I thought that our love was one of a kind
    Now she's going out of my mind The place that I've kept her
    Has suited her well
    Though it's not where she wanted to be
    And from up on that pedestal I couldn't tell
    That she'd rather be down here with me
    Now she just tells me how we can't relate
    But she leaves out the part that I can't take Chorus There's a tear in her eye as they drive me away
    And I turn to the doctors and say...
  5. Bigger Than The Both of Us

    BIGGER THAN THE BOTH OF US The moon's smiling over my shoulder
    I know these same stars will shine when I'm older
    So I'm keeping heaven on my mind
    'Cause a good love is so hard to find Chorus
    And it's bigger than the both of us
    Deeper than the sea
    Tossing on the water riding destiny
    Bigger than the both of us
    Farther than the eye can see
    We're dancing, our souls are dancing
    Infinity You know there's a million ways to fail
    But I know this isn't just a fairy tale
    It's a one in million paradise
    And I know love is the light in your eyes Chorus Bigger than the both of us
    Our souls are dancing
    Bigger than the both of us
    Our souls are dancing
  6. Knees of My Heart

    KNEES OF MY HEART I've got a question for you
    Please grant me an interview
    Don't want to read it in a magazine
    Don't want to see it on the silver screen
    Don't let the craziness tear us apart I'm down on the knees of my heart
    Down here on the knees of my heart This comes from deep in my soul
    Your sweet love has taken control
    I'll swim across the ocean if you tell me so
    I'll take you to the jump up if you want to go
    It never is too late to make a brand new start I'm down here on the knees of my heart
    Down here on the knees of my heart Oh how I will sing if you give me everything
    I live for the day when there's nothing in our way I will be waiting tonight
    You'll find my boat by the light
    I'm gonna show you what my love can do
    Out on the ocean all alone with you
    We'll find a desert island on an ancient chart Take me from the knees of my heart
    Take me from the knees of my heart
    Take me from the knees of my heart
    Take me from the knees of my heart
  7. Come to the Moon

    COME TO THE MOON There's a full earth tonight
    And Mars is big and bright
    And all our friends are flying in
    It's such a lovely sight
    Gravity never could hold me
    That is what you always told me So come to the moon
    I hope to see you soon
    Half a million miles isn't far to go
    You know I need you so
    So come to the moon
    The starship's leaving soon
    Until then I'm just wishing on every star
    You will be here real soon
    Come to the Moon Those crazy martian days
    We went our separate ways...
    Time and space we'll find a place
    to bring our lives in phase
    We're lost amid the galaxies revolving
    And we're all just a part of what's evolving
    Evolving
    So come to the moon
  8. Love in Decline

    LOVE IN DECLINE Left one in the drizzling rain
    Found one on the morning plane
    Leaving out his well-known line
    Bought her some gin - that did her in
    Now they're making love behind the occupied sign Chorus
    Just a living example of love in decline
    Looking so hard and so little time
    Going ninety to nothing and flying stone blind
    Just a living example of love in decline Miami hotel disco bar
    He asked if she's a movie star
    Her eyes light and up - they're going far
    No time for a room it happened to soon
    Now they're making love in her rental car
    Just a living example of love in decline
  9. Burn That Bridge

    BURN THAT BRIDGE I'm not saying I'm scared of you
    But your love is something new
    When I hold you we're swaying in the wind
    Of all the bridges I've ever crossed
    High and lonesome and wild and lost
    I feel this time I'll take it to the end
    We don't care what the people may say
    If there's a price it's the price we'll pay Chorus
    And we'll burn that bridge when we come to it
    Burn that bridge when we come to it
    Burn that bridge when we come to it
    Burn it down
    Burn it down We've both done our share of runnin' around
    Now we know enough to know the kind of love
    we've found
    It's the real thing and we've got to see it through
    eI'm a singer and a sailor on a midnight sea
    Oh captain come and take me on your fantasy
    If we're crazy that ain't nothin' new
    'Cause we don't care what the people may say
    If there's a price it's the price we'll pay and Chorus Who knows how it started
    Who knows it's ends
    The point of no return is waiting
    just around the bend
  10. La Vie Dansante

    LA VIE DANSANTE They can can come take it all away
    Break your heart in the light of day
    Drown your love in a distant bay
    So lonely
    See the ship heading for the rocks See the time melting off the clocks
    There's a light shattering all the locks
    And saves me
    It saves me Chorus
    That's why I wander and follow La Vie Dansante
    On the night wind that takes me just where I want
    That's all I want La Vie Dansante
    Why don't you wander and follow La Vie Dansante
    On the night wind that takes you just where you want
    That's all you'll want La Vie Dansante Miss the beat if you close your eyes
    Every night wears a new disguise
    And I live when a new surprise surrenders Feel it all with a willing heart
    Every stop is a place to start
    If you know how to play the part with feeling
    I play with feeling
