Well, I won't back down No, I won't back down You can stand me up at the gates of hell But I won't back down No, I'll stand my ground Won't be turned around And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down Gonna stand my ground And I won't back down Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out Hey I will stand my ground And I won't back down Well I know what's right I got just one life In a world that keeps on pushin' me around But I'll stand my ground And I won't back down Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out Hey, I will stand my ground And I won't back down Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out Hey, I won't back down Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out Hey, I will stand my ground And I won't back down No, I won't back down Lyrics © Emi April Music Inc., Gone Gator Music, Emi Music Publishing France, EMI APRIL MUSIC INC

Well I'm runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load I've got seven women on my mind Four that wanna own me two that wanna stone me one says she's a friend of mine Take it easy Take it easy Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy Lighten up while you still can Don't even try to understand Just find a place make your stand Take it easy Well I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona Such a fine sight to see It's a girl my lord in a flatbed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me Come on baby Don't say maybe I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me We may lose and we may win Though we will never be here again So open up I'm climbin' in Take it easy Well I'm runnin' down the road tryin' to loosen my load Got a world of trouble on my mind Lookin' for a lover who won't blow my cover She's so hard to find Take it easy Take it easy Don't let the sound of them old wheels drive you crazy Come on baby Don't say maybe I gotta know if your sweet love is gonna save me Lyrics © Sony/ATV Harmony, Swallow Turn Music, SONGS OF UNIVERSAL, INC., MUSIC CORP.

Some folks like to get away Take a holiday from the neighborhood Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood But I'm takin' a Greyhound on the Hudson River line I'm in a New York state of mind I've seen all the movie stars In their fancy cars and their limousines Been high in the Rockies under the evergreens I know what I'm needin' And I don't want to waste more time I'm in a New York state of mind It was so easy livin' day by day Out of touch with the rhythm and blues But now I need a little give and take The New York Times, the Daily News It comes down to reality And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside I don't have any reasons I left them all behind I'm in a New York state of mind It was so easy living day by day Out of touch with the rhythm and blues But now I need a little give and take The New York Times, the Daily News It comes down to reality And it's fine with me 'cause I've let it slide I don't care if it's Chinatown or on Riverside I don't have any reasons I left them all behind I'm in a New York state of mind Lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight I've never seen you shine so bright I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance Looking for a little romance, given half a chance And I have never seen that dress you're wearing Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes I have been blind Lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek There's nobody here, it's just you and me It's where I want to be But I hardly know this beauty by my side I'll never forget the way you look tonight I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight I've never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away And I have never had such a feeling Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek There's nobody here, it's just you and me It's where I want to be But I hardly know this beauty by my side I'll never forget the way you look tonight I never will forget the way you look tonight Lyrics © BMG Rights Management

Tell me do you think it'd be all right If I could just crash here tonight You can see I'm in no shape for driving And anyway I've got no place to go And you know it might not be that bad You were the best I'd ever had If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago I might not be alone Tomorrow we can drive around this town And let the cops chase us around The past is gone but something might be found To take its place Hey jealousy You can trust me not to think And not to sleep around If you don't expect too much from me You might not be let down 'Cause all I really want is to be with you Feeling like I matter too If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago I might be here with you Tomorrow we can drive around this town And let the cops chase us around The past is gone but something might be found To take its place Hey jealousy You can trust me not to think And not to sleep around If you don't expect too much from me You might not be let down 'Cause all I really want is to be with you Feeling like I matter too If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago I might be here with you Tomorrow we can drive around this town And let the cops chase us around The past is gone but something might be found To take its place Hey jealousy She took my heart There's only one thing I couldn't start Lyrics © Warner Chappell Music Inc.

Baby, I've been searching like everybody else Can't say nothing different about myself Sometimes I'm an angel and sometimes I'm cruel And when it comes to love, I'm just another fool Yes, I'll climb a mountain I'm gonna swim the sea There ain't no act of God, girl Could keep you safe from me My arms are reaching out Out across this canyon I'm asking you to be my true companion True companion True companion So don't you dare and try to walk away I've got my heart set on our wedding day I've got this vision of a girl in white Made my decision that it's you alright When I take your hand I'll watch my heart set sail I'll take my trembling fingers And I'll lift up your veil Then I'll take you home And with wild abandon Make love to you just like a true companion You are my true companion I got a true companion Oh, a true companion When the years have done irreparable harm I can see us walking slowly arm in arm Just like that couple on the corner do, 'cause Girl I will always be in love with you When I look in your eyes I'll still see that spark Until the shadows fall Until the room grows dark Then when I leave this Earth I'll be with the angels standin' I'll be out there waiting for my true companion Yeah, my true companion Lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing

Now the seats are all empty Let the roadies take the stage Pack it up and tear it down They're the first to come and the last to leave Working for that minimum wage They'll set it up in another town Tonight the people were so fine They waited there in line And when they got up on their feet they made the show And that was sweet But I can hear the sound Of slamming doors and folding chairs And that's a sound they'll never know Now roll them cases out and lift them amps Haul them trusses down and get 'em up them ramps 'Cause when it comes to moving me You know guys are the champs But when that last guitar's been packed away You know that I still want to play So just make sure you got it all set to go Before you come for this piano But the band's on the bus And they're ready to go We've got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago Or Detroit, I don't know We do so many shows in a row And these towns all look the same We just pass the time in the hotel rooms And wander 'round backstage Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd And we remember why we came Lyrics © Swallow Turn Music, Gianni Music
