A Beat Away From My Heart (Reach Out)

Turn around baby, here I am
Look into the eyes of this loving man
See them shine from a heart of gold
Don't look away or you'll destroy my soul
Why would you ever want to tear me apart?
You're just a beat away from my heart (reach out)

You can walk, baby, you can run
I don't care just as long as you come
To be with me and stand by my side
Show me your lover's world, yes be my guide
You're so close but baby, you are so far
You're just a beat away from my heart (reach out)

Don't tease me, just please me
I'll be your teddy bear if you just want to squeeze me
Cruel or kind, baby, I don't mind
Just as long as you're mine all mine

You're so close but baby, you are so far
You're just a beat away from my heart (reach out)

So reach out and I'll reach in
To touch your heart with all I've been
A passion strong, a love that's true
And all that I do, I do for you
I'm reaching out so we can make a start
I'm just a beat away from your heart
Why would you ever want to tear me apart?
You're just a beat away from my heart (reach out)

Ain't No Saint

It seems I'm taking issue with what people say of me of late
Now I know it ain't so bad, but it sure ain't great
I ain't no pure and patient heart - I ain't no poet in the dark
I ain't the height of self-restraint - I ain't no saint...

Everybody's always talkin' - Sayin' I'm so nice
They don't know that deep inside I can be as cold as ice
And though it's torn me apart - I've broke my share my hearts
I ain't no stranger to that pain - I ain't no saint...

Chorus: So please don't prove it to yourself
'Cos if you cut me I will bleed
I'm just like everybody else
I have wants and I have needs
I never claimed to be a hero
No, my heart is much to feint
Don't you understand? I'm a man
I ain't no saint...

Everybody's shocked to see this sinner face to face
I don't believe I've fallen. I can assure you that I never had much grace
It's a struggle deep inside of a passion I can't hide
I cannot keep my love constrained - I ain't no saint

[CHORUS]

Bridge: I'm not some angel from above
Not some olive-branch holding dove
Just a man falling in and out of love

All the passes never caught. All the "can't-we-be-just-friends"
Every dream of all those nights that never seemed to end
I'm sick and tired of this scene. I'll cross that border to my dreams
And you can be my change of fate - Girl, I ain't no saint...

I ain't no saint...

[Lyrics]


Butterfly Scotch

How fortunate we are for our present company
But what’s the bind and where’s the bond
I see the writing on the wall
Sometimes it seems that you misunderstand
I know I can be just a little or cruel
But I’m much harder on myself than you
Damn the butterfly
Dontcha get the feeling I've already said too much

How pleased am I to be the jester and the knave
Sound the trumpets yet no one hears
Dull the senses with endless cash machines
You can always feel the silent resentments
I know I let you get to me tonight
But I’m much stronger than my will
Blame it on the booze
Dontcha get the feeling I’ve already said too much

How beautiful the play but I’ve never seen the cast
The lightening strikes the same place twice
A double barrel in the back
Somehow the perfect antagonistic scene is set
I feel you’ve cut a little piece of me
And fed it to some faceless muse
Stab the bleeding heart
Dontcha get the feeling I’ve already said too much

The dolls are all drunk and tired and ready for bed
Why am I held prisoner by words that were said?

How cool it is to be captured by the sun
Is there betrayal in a kiss?
No point in going down the path
You sensed emphatically something between us had changed
I know I get angry by the by
But it’s just ‘cos you’re creating your own fate
Free the butterfly
Dontcha get the feeling I’ve already said too much

Dontcha ever get the feeling you just might have said too much

Dontcha ever get the feeling you just might have said, you just might have said, you just might have said...

Dontcha ever get the feeling you just might have said too much

It’s all just butterfly and scotch
That’s all we are - That’s all we got

[Lyrics]


Free Spirits

Free spirit dancin’ in the night
What makes you think that I’m so wrong and you’re so right?
Time is on my side.

You’re dancin’ now but someday you’ll cry.
You'll be shallowed down so low and I’ll be standing there so high.
Girl, you let this train go by...

CHORUS: It’s your lies that shadow me. But through tear-stained eyes I see;
The only true free spirit here is me...

You close your heart. You close your mind.
The hammer slams across my soul a thousand times.
And I just smile and say, “I’m fine”...

A quiet man, he spins words of gold.
You just have to look a little deeper; look into my soul.
And so the truth can then be told.

[CHORUS]

(Instrumental - I got 92 reasons why you should love me, baby...)

[CHORUS]

My conviction is one that’s true and right.
What’s so wrong to wanna love you and be loved by you tonight?
Two free spirits dancin’ in the night.

Free spirits in the night... just two free spirits in the night...

[Lyrics]
