Lyrics: Where You Are

 

Where You Are...There's something in the air tonight. Something moving in that cold street light. Gonna put me on my knees tonight. And I don't even know what for. Got a feeling that I just can't fight. Got a hunger that I can't make right. Tearing at me like a cold steel knife. And I can't take it anymore. It's coming at me like a flash of light. Burning through me, baby, every night. Leaves me empty in the morning light. I've never felt like this before. Wish I may, baby, wish I might. Have this wish, baby, I wish tonight. All I want is just to hold you tight. Like I did before. Swear to God, baby, pay any price. Sell my soul just to make it right. Just tell me darling where you are tonight. And I'll come knocking at your door. Promise everything will be all right. Promise anything you want tonight. Too many demons, here, for me to fight. I can't believe you don't want me anymore. There's something evil in the air tonight. There's something sacred in that cold street light. Something pulling from the left and right. I can't take this anymore. 'Cause I got this feeling that I just can't fight. Got this hunger that I can't make right. And I can't watch you be with him tonight. Just tell me where you are

 

City of Angels...Lord hear my prayer. Yea, I can't believe it's me. It's been a long time since you last heard from me. I've been living a good life of sin in the City of Angels. Don't have much time. I'll just say my piece. Don't want no more mercy, Lord. No more forgiveness for me. Don't make me strong just make it easy for me in the City of Angels. Bright lights below, darkness above. This whole damn town just got no use for love. So it comes, so it goes in the City of Angels. I'm not afraid, for whatever it's worth. Got a little piece of heaven, baby, here on this earth. Ain't gonna run, ain't gonna hide in the City of Angels. I'll do my time. This is not about that. Ain't no man left alive could be bringing me back from the things that I've done to the things that are left in the City of Angels. Bright lights below, darkness above. This whole damn town just got no use for love. So it comes, so it goes in the City of Angels. So it comes, so it goes in the City of Angels.

 

Die Like Elvis...I was minding my own business just a-cruisin' down the street when I caught a glimpse of Graceland, and the king looked out at me. Well, I'm not superstitious, and I don't believe in ghosts, but that was really spooky, man, that was really close. And the next thing I remember, he was a-sitting next to me. Said, son, let me give you some good advice, and you can take it straight from me: You don't want to die like Elvis. You don't want to do that face down thing. You don't want to die like Elvis. You don't want to go out like the King. Well, I quickly turned the corner; gotta lose this frame of mind. Gotta get me some redemption, lord, gotta step back across that line. Maybe it didn't happen, maybe it's all a joke, but he's everywhere I turn these days, he's everywhere I look. And you might think I'm crazy, maybe think the boy's insane, and you can tell me not to worry, still, I'm shaking just the same. See I don't want to die like Elvis. I don't want to do that face down thing. I don't want to die like Elvis. I don't want to go out like the King. Well, I was sitting at a red light, baby, just the other day. I was groovin' to the Thunderbirds, just trying to get away. Well, I figured I'd beat it out of town, move on down the road. Just forget about the whole affair, this entire episode. Now I swear I'm checking out to lunch, I must be losing touch, 'cause as I put that car in gear, he said "thank you, thank you very much." I don't want to die like Elvis. I don't want to do that face down thing. I don't want to die like Elvis. I don't want to go out like the King.

 

Under the Desert Sky...There is a place in the New Mexico hills where the air is sweet and the nights are still. You can smell the breeze roll up across the desert floor, and I swear to God I'm gonna take you there. Mariachi music playing on the radio. Moonlight dancing off the canyon walls. Air so clear you can watch the world go by. Won't you dance with me, baby, under the desert sky? Dance with me, sweet darling, we'll watch the world go by. Just dance with me, baby, under the desert sky. In the plaza below us on a Saturday night, girls spin 'round in the fire light. I can taste your perfume and feel the warmth in your smile, and it's just you and me, baby, for miles and miles. Miles and miles, sweet darling, for miles and miles. It's just you and me, baby, for miles and miles. So don't say a word, it doesn't matter now. Just come with me, we'll steal away somehow to this place I know in the mountains high, and we'll dance all night, baby, under the desert sky. Dance with me, sweet darling, we'll watch the world go by. Dance all night, baby, under the desert sky. Just say you will, baby, under the desert sky.

 

Little Angel...Little angel, I've been thinking about you, about how good you make me feel. Little angel, there's something about you. I've got to know if it's real. Little angel, I'd give you the sunlight. I'll give you love in the afternoon. I'd give you the stars at night. And I'll give you me, too. I just want you to love me. I just want you to care. And like the stars up above me, I want to know that you're there. Little angel, I want to hold you. Don't ever want to let you go. Though I know that I've told you, I love you so. I just want you to love me. I just want you to care. And like the stars up above me, I want to know that you're there. Like the stars up above me, I want to know that you're there.

 

Before the Storm...The sky grew dark with the morning. Sirens screamed across the land. And all the children of the Earth came running home. Not one of them could understand. Fire raged through the valley. From the mountains above we watched it burn. As it flamed around our feet we started running away. But there was nowhere left to turn. Say a prayer for tomorrow for tomorrow may never come. Let the darkness be the calm before the storm. Forget your sorrow, we're not the only ones. See the lightning flashing, hear the thunder crashing. We have been warned. Brothers, brothers and sisters, come forward tonight, take my hand. I do believe I see an answer coming down, but our time is short, we have to make a stand. Say a prayer for tomorrow for tomorrow may never come. Let the darkness be the calm before the storm. Forget your sorrow, we're not the only ones. See the lightning flashing, hear the thunder crashing. We have been warned. We have been warned.

 

Wish Upon A Star...Where the hell do you think you're going? You can't leave me all alone. How am I supposed to go home now when all I cared about is gone? Kiss me once for strength and once for luck. Promise there's no reason for me to fear, 'cause it's so hard for me when I wake up, and I realize that you're not here. I'll wish upon a star tonight. Say I love you, babe, with all my might. And I'd give everything to hold you tight, so I'll wish upon a star tonight. Please, God, just tell me that I'm dreaming. Won't you say it's just not real? I don't know what I'm supposed to do right now. I don't know what I'm supposed to feel. And what about our children? What am I gonna say to them? Daddy's gone away to heaven now, and he can't come home again. So I'll wish upon a star tonight. Say I love you, babe, with all my might. And I'd give everything to hold you tight, so I'll wish upon a star tonight. Yes, I think I'll wish upon a star tonight.

 

Love Me Tonight...Tell me a lie, say you won't go. I can't go on without you, you know. It just isn't fair to lose you this way. I'd do anything to get you to stay. Just don't ask me why 'cause I don't want to fight. Lay by my side and love me tonight. I know that I've hurt you, but I'll be true, I swear. Say you'll forgive me, say you'll still care. Just don't ask me why 'cause I don't want to fight. Lay by my side and love me tonight. Come back to bed, move over here. I'll say anything that you need to hear. Just don't ask me why 'cause I don't want to fight. Lay by my side and love me tonight.

 

East of Heaven...Baby's going out alone tonight. Gonna lose those wedding vows in the pale moonlight. Throw away the chains that been dragging her down. Burn all them bridges down the wrong side of town. Baby's already been long, long gone. No reason no more to keep her hanging on. No place to run, no where to go anyway. It's just no one ever told her it could end this way. Baby's crying, mascara's running in the rain. A heart gets broken, an angel slowly goes insane east of heaven tonight. Gonna find that special friend tonight. Get all the proof she needs in a rock glass tonight. Miles and years from what she left behind, and just around the corner from another waste of time. Baby's crying, mascara's running in the rain. A heart gets broken, an angel slowly goes insane east of heaven tonight. Don't remember how she got this far. Can't remember why. Never found what she was looking for. Never got to say good-bye. Make all the mistakes that she can meet tonight. Take all those wrong turns down one-way streets tonight. Put all she has on the line tonight, and no one will notice when she's gone tonight. Baby's crying, mascara's running in the rain. A heart gets broken, an angel slowly goes insane east of heaven tonight.
