from
Hell To Pay (Arista ARCD-8632), copyright notice

You give me ev'rything you got
Then take it away
You know you're driving me crazy
How long will I have to pay?
You keep me waiting endlessly in this misery
Hey!
Around and 'round your lovin' goes
Where it stops, ain't nobody knows
Full circle
You got me runnin' while you're keepin' me standing still
Full circle
Anything you want me to do, girl, you know I will
Girl, you know I will

When you cruise down the boulevard,
all the guys know your name
You get their engines runnin', yeah
They're all sparked by your flame

You tempt me with your burnin' fire,
lost in my desire, yeah
You don't know what you've out me through
It keeps me spinnin' when I can't have you

It's hard to get you out of my head
I try to set myself free
But just like a bad habit,
you always catch up with me
Yeah!
Around and 'round your lovin' goes
Where it stops, ain't nobody knows
Full circle
Got me runnin' in a full circle, I'm goin' crazy
Full circle
You got me a-runnin', girl
Full circle
Oh!
Full circle
Got me runnin' and I'm full circle
I'm goin' crazy, girl
Full circle
Keep me a-runnin' 'round a full circle
Woo!
Hey, you got me spinnin' 'round!
Ah, yeah!
Goin' out of my mind, baby, yeah
Hey!

Heart Of An Angel

soundclip


by Mark Holmes
recording of 1992
from
Feel This (Arista 18706-2), copyright notice


No problem believing,
in what she can't understand or seeing
What she can't hold in her hand

Faith is her religion
You can see it in her eyes
When all the saints and the sinners,
stop to wave bye-bye

And the holy rollers,
come down from the sky

Chorus
She's got the heart of an angel,
but she cries like a little girl
She's got the heart of an angel
Well don't she cry, don't she cry, cry, cry

The sign said "Confession,
and redemption while you can"
She sought her salvation,
in the hands of a preacher man

He just took the money,
her innocence and pride
And left her on the doorstep,
with her heart cut open wide

The grand illusion,
just pushed her aside

She needs some healing,
She can't understand
That salvation,
is right in the palm of her hand
Hush, sweet baby,
your soul's in the sky

Hear of an angel,
sent to the heaven
Where all is forgiven,
she's got the heart of an angel
The world needs some healing,
for all to be forgiven
She's got the heart of an angel

Hoochie Coochie Man


by Willie Dixon
recording of 1989
from
Roadhouse (Arista ARCD-8576), & Roadhouse, the movie, copyright notice

Gypsy woman told my mother 'fore I was born,
You got a boy-child coming, gonna be a son of a gun
Gonna make pretty womens jump and shout,
And then the world wanna know what this all about

But you know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here
Well, I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm here

I got the black cat bone and I got a mojo tooth
I got the John the Conqueror root, gonna mess with you
I'm gonna make you girls lead me by my hand,
And then the world will know the hoochie coochie man

But you know I'm here
Everybody knows I'm here
Well, I'm the hoochie coochie man
Everybody knows I'm here

On the seventh hour, on the seventh day,
On the seventh month, seven doctors say,
"He was born for good luck, that you'll see"
I got seven hundred dollars; don't you mess with me!

House That Love Built


by Larriva / Marsico / Marsico
recording of 1992
from
Feel This (Arista 18706-2), copyright notice

The bar was filled with smoke and lies,
I couldn't see a thing, it burned my eyes
I pushed a strange woman off my lap,
she had a snake tattooed on her back

The doors opened into the night,
the silence kissed my worried life
I heard a song comin' from the back,
it played over and over again

CHORUS

I stood just around the bend, over the hill,
across the river bed, one step closer to hell
If I forget about my past, forget about my guilt,
I go back to the house that love built, that love built

I went back to the bar again,
and headed straight for the band
I need to remember not to forget,
all the life and the love we had

So play that song and make it right,
get me out of this lonely night
Slapped all my money into his hand,
said play it over and over again

CHORUS

Let me come inside, baby,
let me come inside into the house that love built,
that love built, the house that love built,
the house that love built

How Long Can A Man Be Strong

soundclip


by Jimmy Scott / Steve Cropper
recording of 1995
from
Hell To Pay (Arista ARCD-8632), copyright notice


I've been a restless,
for a long, long time
Tryin' to find a home
for heart of mine
The nights are lonely,
and the days are long
It’s hard to find a reason,
to carry on

But all this searchin',
is it ever gonna end?
Must I keep on losin',
again and again?

Tell me, how long can a man be strong?
How long must he carry on,
without the love of a woman,
to call his own?
Tell me, how long can a man be strong ?

It’s on every man’s mind,
to find that special girl
Someone to love me,
when I’m alone in the world

But I know she’s out there somewhere,
so I’m gonna keep tryin’
Someday I’m gonna find her,
it’s just a matter of time

As long as I’ve been waiting,
I know she’s been waiting, too
Hold on a little longer,
I’m all the way to you

Now ever since this world began,
it takes a woman to make a man
Now I need someone!
Don’t you know I need someone?

Ooh

But all this searchin’,
is it ever gonna end?
Must I keep on losin’,
again and again and again?

Yeah
Oh keep on waiting
Oh noooo
Yeah

How Much

soundclip


by Jeff Healey / Joe Rockman / Tom Stephen
recording of 1990
from
Hell To Pay (Arista ARCD-8632), copyright notice


One candle burns brightly,
it flickers and it almost dies like me
Alone against the wind
But this moment has magic,
it's keeping that flame alive as we hold on to the night
Well, there'll be another day,
we'll have another chance but not like this

No, nothing can compare to the way that I feel right now
Do you feel the same way as I do, then tell me how
How strong do you want it to be?
How do you want to hear it from me?
How long, baby, tell me, how deep?
How much love do you want from me?
Ooh

Somebody must have scared you,
left you wounded and afraid to love again
You are just like me
But nobody's ever held me so close, so desp'rately,
and I never held anybody like you
How much love do you want from me?
How much love do you want from me?
Ooh

How much love do you want from me, yeah?
How strong do you want it to be?
How do you want to hear it from me?
How long, baby, tell me, how deep?
How much love, do you want from me?
Ooh

How much love do you want from me?
Ooh

I'm Tore Down


by Sonny Thompson
recording of 1995
from
Cover To Cover (Arista 74321-23888), copyright notice


I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found

I went to the river to jump in
My baby showed up and said, "I will tell you when"

Well, I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found

I love you babe with all my heart and soul,
love like mine will never grow old
Love you in the morning and in the evening too
Every time you leave me I get mad with you

I love you baby with all my might;
love like mine is out of sight
I'll lie for you if you want me to
I really don't believe that your love is true

I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found

I Need To Be loved

soundclip


by Jeff Healey
recording of 1988
from
See The Light (Arista ARCD-8553), copyright notice


Well, I'm hungry for lovin',
but I just can't get me none
I tried and I tried,
but I can't find anyone

Won't somebody tell me what the reason can be,
why no girl wants to give her love to me?
Everybody needs something, and I need to be loved.
Now, most people have it,
and they get it all the time
But I do without it, tell me why can't love be mine?

I tried for so long,
but it's so hard to find
a lover to help me,
it's breakin' my mind

Everybody needs something, and I need to be loved
Well, I spend my time lost and lonely,
everyday and all night
I don't know how long I can go on,
and I know is it ain't right

Well now, can't find that certain someone,
and I just don't understand
I know out there, there's a girl somewhere,
for such a lonely man
I'll come home this evening
just like all the nights before,
and I'll be alone
When I walk through my front door
And I'll go to bed 'round a quarter to 2,
and I will start cryin like I always do

Everybody needs something and I need to be loved
Whoa, I need to be loved
Yeah, I need to be loved

I Think I Love You Too Much

soundclip


by Mark Knopfler
recording of 1990
from
Hell To Pay (Arista ARCD-8632), copyright notice


I'm not alone, you're sittin' right there
How come I get the feeling,
you could vanish into the air?
I love you more than anybody else baby
Can't you tell I'm an easy touch
Oh, baby baby, I think I love you too much

If I picked you up, you'd slip right away
And if I locked you up,
you'd find a way to make me stay
You're gonna hurt me more than anybody baby,
'cause you know I'm an easy touch
Oh, baby baby, I think I love you too much

I guess I'm gonna give you what you want,
'cause I so in to you
You never give an inch to me baby,
though I've been giving you a mile or two

I'm not alone, you're sittin' right there
How come I get the feeling,
you could vanish into the air?
I love you more than anybody else baby
Can't you tell I'm an easy touch
Oh, baby baby, I think I love you too much

Chorus 3x.

Leave The Light On

soundclip


by Lynch / Sharp
recording of 1992
from
Feel This (Arista 18706-2), copyright notice

When a man loves the woman,
and she tries to turn away
Got no heart to follow,
only pain and sorrow
So don't look the other away

Leave the light on in your window,
leave the key above your door
Leave the light on baby,
that's just what I am looking for

I am lost without your loving,
though I try to make a stand
Well, I am finally stranded,
came up empty-handed
Yeah, I am lost in no man's land

Leave the light on in your window,
leave the key above your door
Leave the light on baby,
that's just what I am looking for

Well, I am lost and lonely but I won't let go,
still my body's achin' for someone to hold
In a world so ruthless, keep in my mind
you're my reason for livin', show me a sign

Leave the light on in your window,
leave the key above your door
Leave the light on baby,
that's just what I am looking for

Leave the light on in your window,
leave the key above your door
Leave the light on baby,
that's just what I am looking for

Leave the light on in your window,
leave the key above your door
Leave the light on baby,
that's just what I am looking for
