TURN ON THE RADIO (Wetton)

All the day, I just can't stand it
I can't give no more, but the man demand it
Watch the clock, through the window
Wait for it, when the last bell go
Grab the keys, I go solo
Get that engine going, and the radio

City lights rushing fast by me
Got to leave, feel so damn stymied
Get away, where they can't see me
Where it's safe, I can just be me
Cruising quick, getting near midnight
Turn up the volume and I'm feeling alright

Play it loud, play it long, play to win
play it cool, play it hard, don't give in
play it live, play it me
Turn on the radio

All the day, I just can't stand it
I can't give no more, but the man demand it
Get away, where they can't see me
Where it's safe, I can just be me
Grab the keys, I go solo
Get that engine going, and the radio
Turn on the radio

BABY COME BACK (Wetton)

You went away leaving me on my own
You went out there with somebody new
The distractions day are okay
I don't worry
But the night brings the memory back of you 

Plenty of girls I can laugh and pretend with
The evenings are never a bore
But the end of the party I leave by myself
And the thrill turns to chill when I get home

Baby come back
I'm lonely without you
Baby come back
You went away
Baby come back
Said I'm lonely without you
Baby come back

I always thought of myself as a loner
You proved me wrong now I know
Despite what I said, It's a high price I paid
It's so cold at the end of the day

I need you back by my side, there's no doubt I loved only you all along
If you would admit that you're aching as I do
Come back, I'll admit that I was wrong

[Stripe]

WHEN WILL YOU REALIZE? (Wetton)

This is the year that we all live in fear 
There's no future for you and I
It may be your dream but you don't fit in my scheme
And I'll run from your loving arms, it will be, that
You've not seen the bad side of me
I will stay in your sweet memory, till you die 

This is the day you should wake up and say
You'll discover what's going down because,
Maybe you're thinking that love's everlasting
But no, there's something wrong, when you're sure
That the odds are all stacked on your side
But I'm only along for the ride, you'll observe

This is the hour as it starts to turn sour and
You find out, that love's a sad game and
This is the moment you're losing, confusing
That same old sympathy, but you carry on
And you dance till the guests have all gone
There'll be no-one to carry you home
You're alone, all alone
And 
When will you realize?

[Stripe]

COLD IS THE NIGHT (Wetton)

Same stupid game
I always lose
Same stupid game
Without you
Cold is the night

I don't make promises
I don't tell lies
And I don't take anyone's advice
One thing I'm certain of
This time it's for real
Well I sure know how it feels

Cold is the night
Blue is the day
Cold is the night
Without you

Same stupid game
I always lose
Same stupid game
Without you
Cold is the night

[Stripe]

PAPER TALK (Wetton)

I've seen your diamond ring
Shining across the room
Illuminating everything
You're such a star, you know you are, you are

And you've got no time for me
I'm not one you want to see
Your role in society
Dictates to you, a busy man, you've things to do
I understand, but when I call, you're off the wall, you are

Paper talk is all I get from you
Paper talk all the way
Paper talk it could be baby talk
Paper talk all the way

The man brings champagne for you
You don't have to tell him to
He does, he's expected to
It's the thing to do, for the man of means, you are

And you talk too fast for me
You don't understand ability
Your game is monopoly
The family tree, dates back to when, your pedigree
Betrays to me, those promises, never to be, again

Paper talk is all I get from you
Paper talk all the way
Paper talk it could be baby talk
Paper talk all the way

Your watch is from Cartier
And time's the only price you pay
To me, living day by day
Your noble chin explains to me
Your blue eyes belie insincerity and I despise
The pointless lies, you tell

[Stripe]

GET AWAY (Wetton)

Get away, get away from me now
You wanted to see me again
'Though when I was in need of a friend
You threw me away at the end of the day
So you're not going to do it again

You wasted my time all along
So I've nothing to say to you now
You wouldn't avail when the goods were for sale
So don't you come after me now

Get away

Stop the game, I want to start again
I changed my hand, thrown the old one in
I'm out on my own, strictly alone, and baby you're going to see
Things turn around when you bring somebody down

Get away, get away, get away from me now
Get away, get away, get away from me now

Snapping your fingers at me
There was nothing that I wouldn't do
I'm a singular man and I do what I can
But I can't take a day more of you

It's a hell of game that you played
You leading me 'round by the nose
I'm so sick and tired of the same stupid lies
And you say that anything goes

Stop the game, I want to start again
I changed my hand, thrown the old one in
I'm out on my own, strictly alone, and baby you're going to see
You don't have to choose when you've nothing left to lose

Get away, get away, get away from me now
Get away, get away, get away from me now

You wanted to see me again
'Though when I was in need of a friend
You threw me away at the end of the day
So you're not going to do it again

It's a hell of a game that you played
There was nothing that I wouldn't do
I'm so sick and tired of the same stupid lies
And I can't take a day more of you

CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE (Wetton)

It's a cold, dark and lonely night
When you know no way to turn
When you've gambled the two things you loved and lost
It's the hard and only way to learn

When I was young, I though I'd never change
But values rarely stay the same
Such a drag to go through all of this
To see my whole life rearranged

I was caught, caught in the crossfire
Between you and me and me and her
I was caught, caught in the crossfire
Between right and left and right and wrong

And experience is no comfort now
It's the world of the unknown
There's a road leading through the crowd
I'm the man, the man who walks alone

From the start, well I had to choose
It was for me along to decide
It was plain sailing at daybreak
By nightfall I was dragged beneath the tide

I was caught, caught in the crossfire
Between you and me and me and her
I was caught, caught in the crossfire
About what was right and what it left for me

So everyday, keep searching, to find a way
And keep moving, to leave this place
Drown in sorrow, raise my glass
And maybe tomorrow, maybe tomorrow

GET WHAT YOU WANT (Wetton/Sinfield)

You always were a survivor
Always could hang on
You've got the judge in your pocket
You'll get want you want
Clear skies aboard the Titanic
Full steam ahead
The water's cold but don't panic
You'll wake up in bed

You were always the one
You knew how it was done
When I could walk you could run
Now I hear you've retired and I've hardly begun
Get what you want

There's no cigar for Napoleon
And his friends like you
Who get a hard sort of holy on
The road to Waterloo
You always were a deceiver
Heart broken down
Infatuated with circuses
But scared to death of clowns

You were always the one
You knew how it was done
When I could walk you could run
Now I hear you've retired and I've hardly begun
Get what you want

Look at the river
Look at it flowing
Stand and deliver
Tell me where you're going
Don't understand you
But you're fascinating
So I'll wait here to land you
I'm waiting

Clear skies aboard the Titanic
Still steaming on
The water's cold but don't panic
You'll get what you want

You were always the one
You knew how it was done
When I could walk you could run
Now I hear you've retired and I've hardly begun
Get what you want

I'LL BE THERE (Wetton)

It's your own life to lead, but the future's not guaranteed
There may be someone else you need along the way
The going can be tough, so when you know you're had enough
Just turn around, give in, call it a day

I'll be there, I won't let you down
I'll be there, I'll always be around
I'll be there, I won't let you down
I'll be there, I'll be there

If the next guy you choose turns out to be bad news
Don't let it worry you the slightest, not at all
I'll be sitting by the 'phone, so when you're coming home
Let it be my number that you want to call

I'll be there, I won't let you down
I'll be there, I'll always be around
I'll be there, I won't let you down
I'll be there, I'll be there

Call on me when all your point of reference
Make no sense at all, don't hesitate just call
I know you had to have your fling
It's only second nature, in the end you're coming
Home to me

I'll be there, I won't let you down
I'll be there, I'll always be around
I'll be there, I won't let you down
I'll be there, I'll be there

WOMAN (Wetton)

When you say that you will never part from me
I believe you always, come what may
I sometimes have doubts, but when you speak to me
In seconds they're all washed away

And I know it never would occur to you
That you mean the world and more to me
Say that you'll stay for eternity
For it's you gives me reason to be

Woman oh woman, if you could only see
Woman oh woman, just what you mean to me

At times I know I am impossible
I can ignore you, but you should know by now
One look from you and I understand
And the frown disappears from by brow

In my life the girls were a necessity
There were others but none compared to you
I'll give you that life if you want it now
In the end that is all I can do

Well I tell myself this is the last time
I want the whole thing, nothing less will do
No-one else can give me just what I need
So always I come back to you

Woman oh woman
Woman oh woman

Bonus tracks:

EVERY INCH OF THE WAY (David Byron/Daniel Boone) 
(1981) The Byron Band: On The Rocks

Met an old friend today
And he told me he was real low
'Cause his music don't fit
With the change of the time
So I asked him to join me
That night for a free blow
Just like we did when we played
For those nickels and dimes

He took a chair and told me
That he'd think it over
Said that it was a while 
Since he'd tickled the strings
So I told him to come along
If he was sober 
And get high on the energy rock'n'roll brings

He said, I'll tell you no lie 
I'll give it one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music
And I want it to stay
Just put me to the test
You bet I'll give my best
And I'll push her to the job
Every inch of the way

Late at home in the evening
I was sittin' and playin'
Looked to the bar on the stage
Came an old friend of mine
Said, he had it grooving
And figured on staying
And if it was okay by me
Could he join for awhile

I'll tell you no lie
I'll give it just one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music
And I want it to stay
Just get me to the test
You know I'm gonna give my best
And I'll push her to the job
Every inch of the way

I won't tell you no lie
'Cause I'm gonna give it
One more try
'Cause I love my old rock music
And it's got to stay
Just put me to the test
'Cause you know I'm gonna
Give my best
And I'll push her to the job
Every inch of the way

I'll tell you, tell you, tell you no lie
I'll give it one more try
'Cause I love my old rock music
And it's got to stay

OUT OF THE BLUE (Ferry/Manzanera)
(1995) Roxy Music: Psalm

All your cares now they seem oh so far away
All your fears I fear I once shared
Now I know there's a future for all of us
Not so long ago I was so scared

You seemed so sad
I could see through your twisted smile
So unsure always confused
Pale blue eyes gazing down from your ivory tower
Through the haze all broken and bruised

Then out of the blue love came rushing in
Out of the sky came the sun
Out of left field came a lucky day
Out of the blue no more pain

I don't mind if it's only a passing craze
Throwaway lines often ring true
If I were you I would stay for a little while
If you were me would you walk out in style?
