Against The Wind

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playlng low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didnít know now what I didnít know then

Against the wind
We were runniní against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runniní
Against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded bv stranners I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home
And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searchiní
Searching for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifters days are past me now
Iíve got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
Iím still runniní against the wind
Well Iím older now and still
Against the wind

Always in My Heart

I think of you and I together
I picture you and I as one
When we sit there in
The firelight baby
When we wake to the morning sun
And though you may leave me
Weíre never apart
Youíre always in my heart

When youíre standing at the window
With the moonlight in your hair
And you turn and smile
My favorite smile
I just have to stop and stare
And babe when you hold me
I go off the chart
Youíre always in my heart

Stay with me stay
Stay with me babe forever
Be by my side
Lets spend our lives together

I picture you and I together
I think of you and I for years
And if youíre ever lost or worries baby
Iíll be there to calm your fears
I think that Iíve loved you
Right from the start

Always in my heart
Always in my heart

Famous Final Scene

Think in terms of bridges burned
Think of seasons that must end
See the rivers rise and fall
They will rise and fall again
Everything must have an end
Like an ocean to a shore
Like a river to a stream
Like a river to a stream
Itís the famous final scene
And how you tried to make it work
Did you really think it could
How you tried to make it last
Did you really think it would
Like a guest who stayed too long
Now itís finally time to leave
Yes, itís finally time to leave
Take it calmly and serene
Itís the famous final scene
Itís been coming on so long
You were just the last to know
Itís been a long time since youíve smiled
Seems like oh so long ago
Now the stage has all been set
And the nights are growing cold
Soon the winter will be here
And thereís no one warm to hold
Now the lines have all been read
And you knew them all by heart
Now you move toward the door
Here it comes the hardest part
Try the handle of the road
Feeling different feeling strange
This can never be arranged
As the light fades from the screen
From the famous final scene

Like a Rock

Stood there boldly
Sweatiní in the sun
Felt like a million
Felt like number one
The height of summer
Iíd never felt that strong
Like a rock

I was eighteen
Didnít have a care
Working for peanuts
Not a dime to spare
But I was lean and
Solid everywhere
Like a rock

My hands were steady
My eyes were clear and bright
My walk had purpose
My steps were quick and light
And I held firmly
To what I felt was right
Like a rock

Like a rock, I was strong as I could be
Like a rock, nothiní ever got to me
Like a rock, I was something to see
Like a rock

And I stood arrow straight
Unencumbered by the weight
Of all these hustlers and their schemes
I stood proud, I stood tall
High above it all
I still believed in my dreams

Twenty years now
Whereíd they go?
Twenty years
I donít know
Sit and I wonder sometimes
Where theyíve gone

And sometimes late at night
When Iím bathed in the firelight
The moon comes calliní a ghostly white
And I recall

Like a rock. standiní arrow straight
Like a rock, charginí from the gate
Like a rock, carryiní the weight
Like a rock

Lihe a rock, the sun upon my skin
Like a rock, hard against the wind
Like a rock, I see myself again
Like a rock


I remember standing on the corner at midnight
Trying to get my courage up
There was this long lovely dancer in a little club downtown
I loved to watch her do her stuff
Through the long lonely nights she filled my sleep
Her body softly swaying to that smoky beat
Down on mainstreet

In the pool halls, the hustlers and the losers
I used to watch íem through the glass
Well Iíd stand outside at closing time
Just to watch her walk on past
Unlike all the other ladies, she looked so young and sweet
As she made her way alone down that empty street
Down on mainstreet

And sometimes even now, when Iím feeling lonely and beat
I drift back in time and I find my feet
Down on mainstreet
Down on mainstreet

Old Time Rock Roll

Just take those old records off the shelf
Iíll sit and listen to íem by myself
Todayís music aln ít got the same soul
I like that old time rock íní roll
Donít try to take me to a disco
Youíll never even get me out on the
In ten minutes Iíll be late for the door
I like that old time rockíní roll

Still like that old time rockíní roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock íní roll
Wonít go to hear them play a tango
Iíd rather hear some blues or funky old soul
Thereís only sure way to get me to go
Start playing old time rock íní roll
Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say Iím old-fashioned, say Iím over the hill
Todayí music ainít got the same soul
I like that old time rock íní roll

Still like that old time rockíní roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock íní roll

Beautiful Loser

He wants to dream like a young man
With the wisdom of an old man.
He wants his home and security,
He wants to live like a sailor at sea.
Beautiful loser, where you goona fall?
You realize you just canít have it all.

Heís your oldest and your best friend,
If you need him, heíll be there again.
Heís always willing to be second best,
A perfect lodger, a perfect guest.
Beautiful loser, read it on the wall
And realize, you just canít have it all. canít have it all, you canít have it all,
Oh, oh, ... canít have it all.

Heíll never make any enemies,
He wonít complain if heís caught in a freeze.
Heíll always ask, heíll always say please.

Beautiful loser, never take it all
ícause itís easier, faster when you fall,
You just donít need it all
Oh, oh, ... you just donít need it all.
