IíLL MEET YOU AT MIDNIGHT
A summer evening on the Champs Elysťes
A secret rendezvous they planned for days
A sea of faces in a crowded cafť
The sound of laughter as the music plays

Jean Claude was s student at the universitť
Louise Marie was just a world away
He recalled the night they met was warm with laughter
the words were music as she turned away

Iíll meet you at midnight
Under the moonlight
Iíll meet you at Midnight

Each cigarette will light a thousand faces
Each hour that passed seemded like a thousand years
Midnight was turning into empty spaces
The sound of laughter disappeared
Iíll meet you at midnight
Under the moonlight
Iíll meet you at Midnight

But Jean-Claude, Louise Marie will never be.

A summer morning on the Champs Elysťes
the empty tables of the street cafťs
The sunlight melting through an open doorway
Jean-Claude is left to face another day

Iíll meet you at midnight
Under the moonlight
Iíll meet you at Midnight

Oh, but Jean-Claude, Louise Marie will never be.

IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW HOW TO LOVE ME
A breathless drive on a downtown street
A motor bike ride in the midday heat
The dust hat hung from the desert skies
Run though weíd run, it still burned our eyes.
Oh yes we may walk on the wild side of life
And our movements traced by a stranger close by your side.
And in the shadows of a promise you can take my hand
And show me a way to understand

So if you think you know how to love me
And you think you know what I need
And if you really really want me to stay
Youíve got to lead the way
Yes if you think you know how to love me
And you think you can stand by me
And if you really really want me to stay
Youíve got to lead the way.
A reckless night in a nameless town
The we moved out of sight with a silent sound
A beach that wept with deserted waves
Thatís where we slept, knowing weíd be safe
Now you may think you can walk on the wild, wild side with me
But thereís a lot I can learn and a lot that Iíve yet to see
You know youíve got my life lying in your hands
Itís up to you to make me understand.

So if you think you know how to love me
And you think you know what I need
And if you really really want me to stay
Youíve got to lead the way
Yes if you think you know how to love me
And you think you can stand by me
And if you really really want me to stay
Youíve got to lead the way.

IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT
In the heat of the night when you know it ainít right
But you do what you want to do.
You do what you feel but no one can feel like you.

In the summertime city ainít it a pity
Thereís so much to tie you down
Youíre leaving tonight for somewhere you canít be found

While down at the end of town
At a pool hall where they all hang around
You can hear them talking Ďbout girls they know
Talking Ďbout what theyíre gonna do
Then you ask yourself: is this where you belong,
Is it right or is it wrong
And does it matter whatís right
In the heat of the night.

In the streets tonight under the neon lights
Youíre searching for something new.
Nothing is real but no one could feel like you.

They say eagles fly in this red hot sky
But were they just passing through
Or did they look down and see what you found was true.

But still in the back of your mind
Youíve got something to believe in
But thereís so much to find
As the bright lights dim and the night closes in .
You thought everything has ended
But itís yet to begin
And you ainít see nothing yet
(but) what you see you wonít forget
You say
Why oh why did it take you so long to want something more
oh why did you never got off on this before
and here it is the life youíve standing in front of you like an open door.

And you ask yourself: is this where you belong,
Is it right or is it wrong
And does it matter whatís right
In the heat of the night.

In the heat of the night when you know it ainít right
But you do what you want to do.
You do what you feel but no one can feel like you.

ITíS YOUR LIFE
Who said the web of life is woven in a dream?
ĎCause your life is filled with dreams you canít believe.
So the only way you live with it is acting evíry scene
And you play the part so well that you deceive

Now and again you find you ainít got a friend
Who knows?
I come and I go
But itís your life
Itís your life
Thatís your life

Though the world is overcrowded you still found an empty place
And I know he leaves you helpless and confused
And your search for love has often left you starring into space
Just another broken heart so whatís the use?

How many times have I been so hard to find

You know
I come and I go
But itís your life
Itís your life
Thatís your life

How does it feel when heís not around?
Can he be real when he canít be found nowhere?

Who lit the flame upon the candle tonight?
And who let herself be led so easily?
And who let it burn until the early morning light
And in the early morning gave herself to me?

And so at last you know
That itís your life
Itís your life
But itís your life

Itís your life.......

LAY BACK IN THE ARMS OF SOMEONE
If you want my sympathy
Just open your heart to me
Youíll get whatever youíll ever need.
You think thatís too high for you
Oh but baby, I would die for you
When thereís nothing left you know where Iíll be.

Lay back in the arms of someone
Give in to the charms of someone
Lay back in the arms of someone you love.

Lay back in the arms of someone
Give in to the charms of someone
Lay back in the arms of someone you love.

So baby just call on me
When you want all of me
Iíll be your lover, Iíll be your friend.

And thereís nothing I wonít do
ĎCause baby I just live for you
With nothing to hide no need to pretend.

Lay back in the arms of someone
Give in to the charms of someone
Lay back in the arms of someone you love.

Oh I know you think thatís too high for you
Oh but baby, I would die for you
When thereís nothing left Iíll be with you.

Lay back in the arms of someone
Give in to the charms of someone
Lay back in the arms of someone you love.

LIGHT UP MY LIFE
Sadness has gone from the light in my eyes,
Will she be waiting,
Should I feel proud of the tears that I cried,
No hesitating.

Happiness sounds like the one I have lost, only to follow
Where in the world is the one that I've crossed,
Gone is tomorrow.

CHORUS
Light in my eyes,
Light up my face,
Light up my life, light up my life,
Light up my life, light up my life.

Feelings of fear all around someone's here,
Look all around me.
Could it be she rediscovering me,
Or did she see.
CHORUS

LIVERPOOL DOCKS
Once knew a man who thought he was another guy, he was livin' a lie.
He took a chance by roaming the streets in the night,
Till he learned how to fight.
He met trouble one night, another man with his wife
So he brought out his knife, didn't mean to take his life,
Now he's got to get away, hear him say:

CHORUS (first)
I'm going down to the Liverpool docks,
Try to hitch a ride, ain't gonna break no rocks.
And I never had a friend, I never needed one.
I'm going down to the silvery sea,
I'm gonna go some place where they won't find me.
And maybe I can go where I won't ever have to come back again.

He took his time, lived his life alone,
And his thoughts were his own.
He lived in a place he'd never heard of before,
In Block number four.
Then one night at his door, he stood facing the law.
On the paper he saw, what they wanted him for,
They're gonna take him back, and he said:

CHORUS (second)
I'm goin' back to Liverpool Docks,
Gonna take a ride, gonna break some rocks.
And I never had a friend, but I never needed one.
Take a ride on the silvery sea,
I'm gonna go some place where they won't find me.
And I don't wanna go 'cause I know that I'll never come back again.
CHORUS (first)

LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ALICE
Sally called when she got the word
She said I suppose youíve heard
About Alice.

Well I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
I could hardly believe my eyes
As a big limousine rolled up into Aliceís drive.

Oh I donít know why sheís leaving or where sheís gonna go
I guess sheís got her reasons but I just donít want to know
Ďcause for twenty-four years Iíve been living next door to Alice.

Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now Iíve got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

We grew up together, two kids in the park
We carved our initials deep in the bark
Me and Alice.

Now she walks through the door with her head held high
Just for a moment, I caught her eye
As a big limousine pulled slowly out of Aliceís drive.

Oh I donít know why sheís leaving or where sheís gonna go
I guess sheís got her reasons but I just donít want to know
Ďcause for twenty-four years Iíve been living next door to Alice.

Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now Iíve got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

Sally called back and asked how I felt
And she said, hey I know how to help
Get over Alice.

She said, now Alice is gone, but Iím still here
You know Iíve been waiting for twenty-four years
And the big limousine disappeared.

I donít know why sheís leaving or where sheís gonna go
I guess sheís got her reasons but I just donít want to know
Ďcause for twenty-four years Iíve been living next door to Alice.

Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance
to tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
But Iíll never get used to not living next door to Alice.
No Iíll never get used to not living next door to Alice

MEXICAN GIRL
Juanita came to me last night, and she cried over and over
Ooh, Daddy, I love you, you know, and I think itís the moonlight.
She looked so fine, well she looked alright, and she moaned
Ooh, Daddy, move over
Oh, Baby, you know what I like and I think itís the moonlight
Made in Mexico, schooled in France, ooh la loviní she needed no teachiní
Oh man I can say international ways I believe in.

Mexican girl, donít leave me alone
I got a heart as big as a stone
And I need you, believe me, to be here and love me tonight
Mexican girl, I want you to stay
You know my heart is longing to say
That as long as I live I will always remember the one that I called
My Mexican girl

Her skin was soft as the velvet sky and her hair it shone in the moonlight
And as the music did play, well the night turned to day, and I held her tight.

Then she looked at me with her dark brown eyes, and she whispered Hasta La Vista
Well, I donít know what that means, but it sounded so good so I kissed her

Mexican girl, donít leave me alone
I got a heart as big as a stone
And I need you, believe me, to be here and love me tonight
Mexican girl, I want you to stay
You know my heart is longing to say
That as long as I live I will always remember the one that I called

My Mexican girl, donít leave me alone
I got a heart as big as a stone
And I need you, believe me, to be here and love me tonight
Mexican girl, I want you to stay
You know my heart is longing to say
That as long as I live I will always remember the one that I called
My Mexican girl.
