My Clone Sleeps Alone Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : In The Heat Of The Night

You know and I know my clone sleeps alone
She's out on her own - forever
She's programmed to work hard, she's never profane
She won't go insane, not ever
No V.D., no cancer, on T.V's the answer
No father, no mother,, she's just like the other
And you know and I know, my clone sleeps alone

Your clone loves my clone, but yours cannot see
That's no way to be, in heaven
No sorrow, no heartache, just clone harmony
So obviously, it's heaven

No naughty clone ladies allowed in the eighties
No bed names, no sex games, just clone names and clone games
And you know and I know my clone sleeps alone

Before we existed the cloning began
The cloning of man and woman
When we're gone they'll live on, cloned endlessly
It's mandatory in heaven

But they won't remember or ever be tender
No loving, no caring, no program for pairing
No V.D., no cancer, on T.V's the answer
No father, no mother, she's just like the other

No naughty clone ladies allowed in the eighties
And you know and I know my clone sleeps alone
my clone sleeps alone!
my clone sleeps alone!

We Live For Love Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : In The Heat Of The Night

Your love's contagious, one kiss is dangerous
But I have more to risk, than you to lose
I feel passion growing
I know that love is only just one inch away, from striking us
We Live For Love
We Live For Love

When we get tired, and watch the summer fade away
Will you think of romance, what will we do?
Is there a place where we can go?
Where time stands still for those who know?
Till eternity we'll fulfill our desires

We Live For Love
We Live For Love
We Live For Love
We Live For Love

I never planned to win the race
But you convinced me face to face
There was never a chance of losing at all

We Live For Love
We Live For Love
We Live For Love
We Live For Love

We Live For Love
We Live For Love
We Live For Love

Rated X Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : In The Heat Of The Night

She's a personality, enjoying popularity
For making movies Rated X
Posing for a magazine, picture in a limousine
Someone simulating sex
Never thought that she could be
Lonely with her vanity
Wasted days and lonely nights
Working for the sugar man
Make each other happy man
Cause satisfaction's guaranteed all night

Drinking champagne is a past time
Making hot love is a main line
Money buys love and a wild time
Making hot love is a main line
Hot Love!

She wakes up, and breaks up
And wonders why love is unkind
She waits up, and makes up
And looks in the mirror to find

Pink champagne and diamond rings
Fascinating bright young things
Dancing at the discotechs
Starring from the silver screen
See you in a midnight dream - Rated X

Drinking champagne is a past time
Making hot love is a main line
Money buys love and a wild time
Making hot love is a main line

Drinking champagne is a past time
Making hot love is a main line
Money buys love and a wild time
Making hot love is a main line
Hot Love!

Come on, gimme' hot love
Satisfaction guaranteed

Don't Let It Show Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : In The Heat Of The Night
(originally by The Alan Parsons Project)

If it's getting harder to face everyday
Don't let it show, don't let it show
Though it's getting harder to take what they say
Just let it go
And if it hurts when they mention my name
Say you don't know me
And if it helps when they say I'm to blame
Say you don't own me

Even if it's taking the easy way out
Keep it inside of you
Don't give in
Don't tell them anything

Don't let it
Don't let it show

Even though you know it's the wrong thing to say
Say you don't care, say you don't care
Even if you want to believe there's a way
I won't be there, I won't be there

But if you smile when they mention my name
They'll never know you
And if you laugh when they say I'm to blame
They'll never own you

Even if you feel you've got nothing to hide
Keep it inside of you
Don't give in
Don't tell them anything

Don't let it
Don't let it show

No You Don't Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : In The Heat Of The Night
(originally by Sweet)

You keep tellin' me don't hang around
While you play around with the clowns that you found
It ain't right
Now and then I get tired of the sound of you putting me down
While you're playing the town everynight
I'm getting hung up, yes I am, yes I am
And you don't give a damn

No you don't
Have to treat me like a fool
No you don't
Have to be so bloody cool
No you don't
Have to make up all the rules
No you don't
No, no you don't
No you don't

You keep playing your reckless games that will bring you fame
But I'll take the blame for your name

Well you think you've got my life in your hands
But you don't understand, that I've got my own plans
My own plans
I'm going down, yes I am, yes I am
And you don't give a damn

No you don't
Have to treat me like a fool
No you don't
Have to be so bloody cool
No you don't
Have to make up all the rules
No you don't
No, no you don't
No you don't

So Sincere Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : In The Heat Of The Night

We say I love you and we're so sincere
I look in your eyes and it becomes quite clear
You want what I want, you need what I need
When I turn to leave
You plead, and plead, and plead, and plead, and plead

We're so sincere
We're so sincere
We're so sincere
We're so sincere

Now I'm sure I'm right and I'm so sincere
You convince me I'm wrong with a single tear
You want me so badly, you can't live without me
When I turn to leave
You bleed, and bleed, and bleed, and plead, and plead

We're so sincere
We're so sincere
We're so sincere
We're so sincere

We're livin' so fast we're not living at all
Two sparrows tied together will always fall
We know we love each other so there's nothin' to prove
But I'm gonna smother if somebody don't move

We're so sincere
We're so sincere
We're so sincere
We're so sincere

Treat Me Right Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

You want me to leave
You want me to stay
You ask me to come back
You turn and walk away
You wanna be lovers
And you wanna be friends
I'm losing my patience
You're nearing the end
One of these days
You're gonna reach out and find
The one that you count on
Has left you behind
Don't want to be no martyr
With no one, no say
Oh my, my baby
Before it's too late

Treat me right
Treat me right
Open your eyes
Maybe you'll see the light

Do you think I'm a fool
Well you better think twice
I've had enough, baby
It's time you realized
That you can't have it both ways
It's no way to live
You've done all the takin'
It's your turn to give

One of these days
You're gonna reach out and find
The one that you count on
Has left you behind
Don't want to be no martyr
With no one, no say
Oh my, my baby
Before it's too late

Treat me right
Treat me right
Open your eye's
Maybe you'll see the light
Ooh-ooh
Treat me right

[Instrumental Interlude]

You want me to leave
You want me to stay
You ask me to come back
You're turnin' love away
You wanna be lovers
And you wanna be friends
I'm losing my patience
You're nearing the end

Treat me right
Treat me right
Open your eyes
Maybe you'll see the light
Ooh-ooh
Treat me right

Treat me right, treat me right
Treat me right, treat me right
Treat me right, treat me right
Treat me right, treat me right
Treat me right

Never Wanna Leave You Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Never could say what I wanna say
Never could do what I wanna do
Never could believe you, if it's true
Never could, never would, you make it so hard
I never wanna leave you

I'm always right, you're never wrong
We change the tune but not the song
Over and over
'Til it's done, it's never done, never done
You make it so hard
Never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you

Movin' together, comin' apart
You're what I need, I'm what you want
Never could refuse you from the start
Never could, never would, never could
You make it so hard

Never could say what I wanna say
Never could do what I wanna do
Never could believe you, if it's true
Never could, never would, you make it so hard

I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
Never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna leave you
I never wanna

Hit Me With Your Best Shot Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Well you're the real tough cookie
With the long history
Of breaking little hearts
Like the one in me
That's OK,
Lets see how you do it
Put up your dukes,
Lets get down to it
Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me
With your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

You come on with a "come on"
You don't fight fair
But that's OK, see if I care
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I'll get right back on my feet again

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me
With your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Well, you're the real tough cookie
With the long history
Of breaking little hearts
Like the one in me
Before I put another notch
In my lipstick case
You better make sure
You put me in my place

Hit me with your best shot
Come On, hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Hell Is For Children Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

They cry in the dark, so you can't see their tears
They hide in the light, so you can't see their fears
Forgive and forget, all the while
Love and pain become one and the same
In the eyes of a wounded child

Because Hell, Hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love
With your bones and your flesh

It's all so confusing, this brutal abusing
They blacken your eyes, and then apologize
Be daddy's good girl, and don't tell mommy a thing
Be a good little boy, and you'll get a new toy
Tell grandma you fell off the swing

Because Hell, Hell is for children
And you know that their little lives can become such a mess
Hell, hell is for children
And you shouldn't have to pay for your love
With your bones and your flesh
No, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell, Hell is for Hell
Hell is for Hell, Hell is for children

Hell is for children
Hell is for children

Little Paradise Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Can you see the view? Can you feel the heat?
I'm savin' no time for you, no time for me
You're up on the news, I'm wild in the streets
I'm under the lights, tonight I won't have to hide the need
But you got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your
Little Paradise

You got fashion secure in your own little world
Diamonds are forever for Hollywood girls
No need to cover, no reason to lie
Life without your Maserati is grounds for suicide

But you got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your
Little Paradise
Little Paradise

You got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your

You got love in its place
In its own time and space
You got love in its place in your

Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise
Little Paradise [Fading Out]

I'm Gonna Follow You Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

I'm gonna follow you, 'til I wear you down
I'm gonna follow you, 'cause this here's my town
You don't know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can't turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)
Ooo, ooo...

I'm gonna follow you, 'til I know your timing
You'll turn some corner soon, and find you can't get by me
You don't know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can't turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)

You see yourself as some kind of lily of the valley
You come around here in your ballet slippers padding on my alley
And you know that you can't dance
'Cause you know you never had the chance
I'm gonna dance for you!

Ooo, ooo...

I'm gonna follow you, 'til I wear you down
I'm gonna follow you, 'cause this here's my town
You don't know these streets the way that I do (I do, I do)
You can't turn it on and off the way that I do (I do, I do)

You see yourself as some kind of lily of the valley
You come around here in your ballet slippers padding on my alley
And you know that you can't dance
'Cause you know you never had the chance
I'm gonna dance for you!

Ooo, ooo...

Wuthering Heights Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion
(originally by Kate Bush)

Out on the wiley, windy moors, we'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper like my jealousy, too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me, when I needed to possess you
I hated you, I loved you too
Bad dreams in the night
You told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my

Wuthering, Wuthering, Wuthering Heights
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window

Ooh, it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine a lot, I find the lot falls through without you
I'm coming back love, cruel Heathcliff
My one dream, my only master

Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right
I'm coming home to

Wuthering, Wuthering, Wuthering Heights
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window

Ooh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Ooh, let me have it, let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm - so cold, let me in your window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
So cold

Prisoner Of Love Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

Cold hard labor, it's a labor of love
Convicted of crimes, the crimes of passion
Caught in a chain gang, the chain of fools
Solitary confinement, confined by the rules

I'm just a prisioner
An inmate of love
Oh I'm a prisioner
Captured by love
With no escape
No where to go
No place to hide
Hey, I'm a prisioner!
I'm just a prisioner

Mending the wounds, the wounds of lament
The knife cut deep, deep into my heart
The romance is over, my passions remain
Still bound to love by this ball and chain

I'm just a prisioner
An inmate of love
Oh I'm a prisioner
Captured by love
With no escape
No where to go
No place to hide
Hey, I'm a prisioner!
I'm just a prisioner

Oh I'm a prisioner
Hey, I'm a prisioner!

Find an escape, a key to the door
I gotta get out, can't take anymore
Make a clean break, to bury the past
I'll shed these chains and be free at last

I'm just a prisioner
A Prisioner Of Love
I'm just a prisioner
A Prisioner Of Love
Hey, I'm a prisioner
I'm just a prisioner

Out-A-Touch Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Crimes Of Passion

I've seen your picture in the paper
On the front page of magazines
I've pulled the trigger right at you
On billboards and movie screens
When I talk, it's to myself
Cause I know your kind, you're like everyone else
Maybe it'll work itself out in time, before I lose my mind
You, you're out-a-touch
All alone in a danger zone, and I think too much
Your out-a-touch

I keep your letters by the mirror
You're the subject of every dream
You're not so invincible, and I'm not what I might seem

When I look, it's in your eyes
And I know your look, you can hypnotize
How long does it have to last like this, a kodachrome kiss

You, you're out-a-touch
All alone in a danger zone, and I think too much
You, you're out-a-touch
You're in my sight all through the night
And I see too much
Your out-a-touch

Can't you see I'm obsessed
I'd do anything, I'm possessed
I'm in a constant rage with your luminary stage
I need you, I need you

I've seen your picture in the paper
On the front page of magazines
I've pulled the trigger right at you
On billboards and movie screens

When I look, it's in your eyes
And I know your look, you can hypnotize
How long does it have to last like this, a kodachrome kiss

You, you're out-a-touch
All alone in a danger zone, and I think too much
Your out-a-touch

I need you [x7]

Promises In The Dark Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

Never again, isn't that what you said
You've been through this before
You swore, this time, you'd think with your head
No one would ever have you again
And if takin' was gonna get done, you'd decide where and when

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper promises in the dark

Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
All the warnings went off in your head, still you had to give in

Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper promises in the dark

But promises you know what they're for
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
'Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard but your heart says try again

You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the cost

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper promises in the dark

Fire And Ice Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

You're givin' me the fever tonight
I don't wanna give in, I'll be playin' with fire
You forget, I've seen you work before
Take 'em straight to the top, leave 'em cryin' for more
I've seen you burn 'em before

Fire and ice, you come on like a flame
Then you turn cold shoulder
Fire and ice, I wanna give you my love
You'll just take a little piece of my heart
Please tear it apart

Movin' in for the kill tonight
You got every advantage when they put out the lights
It's not so pretty when it fades away
'Cause it's just an illusion in this passion play
I've seen you burn 'em before

Fire and ice, you come on like a flame
Then you turn cold shoulder
Fire and ice, I wanna give you my love
You'll just take a little piece of my heart

So you think you got it all figured out
You're an expert in the field without a doubt
But I know your methods inside and out
I won't be taken in by fire and ice

Fire and ice, you come on like a flame
Then you turn cold shoulder
Fire and ice, I wanna give you my love
You'll just take a little piece of my heart

You come on like a flame
Then you turn cold shoulder
Fire and ice, you come on like a flame
And you turn cold shoulder
Fire and ice

Just Like Me Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time
(originally by Paul Revere And The Raiders)

It's just like me, to say to you
Love me dear, an' I'll be true
And all I want for you to say
Is you'll come home with me each day
You could be my love
That's what I want
Just you, secure and safe from harm
It's just like me, to feel so good
And fall so much, in love with you

It's just like me, It's just like me
I'm not your fool, that's what I'll be
It's just like you, to say goodbye
And leave me all alone to cry

It's just like me, to say to you
Love me dear, an' I'll be true
And all I want for you to say
Is you'll come home with me each day

It's just like me, It's just like me
I'm not your fool, that's what I'll be
It's just like you, to say goodbye
And leave me all alone I cry

It's just like me
It's just like you
It's just like me
It's just like you
It's just like me
It's just like you
It's just like me
It's just like you

It's just like me
It's just like me
It's just like me
It's just like me
It's just like me
It's just like me
It's just like me
It's just like me

Precious Time Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

I don't want to argue about who is the victim
Cause maybe we both got burned
I don't want to talk about who is the traitor
Cause both of our loyalties turned
I don't want to fight about who is the liar
Cause there's too many ways to lie
I don't want to hear about who is the winner
Cause we both know it's a tie
Cut it out, drop it, count me out - baby stop it
Life is too short, so why waste precious time
Life is too short, so why waste precious time

You were on a liquid diet, you were sure you had to try it
And you lost all your pounds
The doctor's on vacation, so you took the medication
And wound up in lost and found
So we took a trip to Paris
Cause you swore that it would scare us out of our swift decline
All that I remember 'bout those days in that September
Is the "merci" and the wine

Cut it out, drop it, count me out - baby stop it
Life is too short, so why waste precious time
Life is too short, so why waste
Precious time, precious time, precious time
Oh, precious time
Life is too short, so why waste precious time

You talk on the telephone, long distance to New York or Rome
Some would say you got it made
Your home is like a fortress, no one comes in but the florist
The gardner, and the maid
You call me on the telephone, you say you feel so alone
Too tired to get dressed and get out
First you're happy, then you're sad
Somehow you always hang up mad
Excuse me if I shout

Cut it out, drop it, count me out - baby stop it
Life is too short, so why waste precious time
Life is too short, so why waste precious time
Life is too short, so why waste precious time
Precious time, precious time, oh precious time
Life is too short, so why waste precious time

It's A Tuff Life Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

Isn't it a tuff life?
You race your Mercedes through the park after midnight
Hopin' for a few cheap thrills
There's always someone around to lift your spirits up
All along just pumpin' up your attitude
Don't believe a word they say
Cause it's never true
Isn't it a tuff life?
You got a tuff life
If you can't have it, then you don't want it
You don't need no steady job
Well, isn't it a tuff life?
You got a tuff life

You thought you'd move to Jamaica
So you packed up your bags and headed south to get an even tan
But, you didn't count on rain

You were "perfect" for the script
So you bought the best selling novel
Knowing that you couldn't miss
But you never got the part

Isn't it a tuff life?
You got a tuff life
If you can't have it, then you don't want it
You don't need no steady job
Well, isn't it a tuff life?

It don't get any easier
And you know, sometimes it can get pretty ruff

Well, isn't it a tuff life?
You got a tuff life

Isn't it a tuff life?
You got a tuff life
Isn't it a tuff life?
You've got such a tuff life
Isn't it a tuff life?
You got a tuff life
Isn't it a tuff life?
You got such a tuff life

Take It Any Way You Want It Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

You were the one who made me lose control
Just when I needed to be on my own
You had an answer, but no alibi
You're fellin' sorry 'cause there's no time to lie
So what, you deserve everything that you got
You think I'm gonna be there, but I'm not
So take it any way you want it
Take it any way you please
Take it any way you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me

Don't bother runnin' through the old routine
Your words are weak and they don't mean a thing
You had your chances and you threw 'em away
You said the "turnaround" was in fair play
So what, you deserve everything that you got
Ya' think I'm gonna be there, but I'm not

So take it any way you want it
Take it any way you please
Take it any way you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me

I don't wanna be the one accused
You never thought you'd see the day
It'd come back on you

You hate to say that maybe you were wrong
You want contentment, but ya' can't be that strong
You see the shadow on the window blind
But that shadow will never be mine
So what, you deserve everything that you got
Ya' think I'm gonna be there, but I'm not

So take it any way you want it
Take it any way you please
Take it any way you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me

Take it any way you want it
Take it any way you please
Take it any way you want it
But I don't think you wanna bother me

Evil Genius Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

They were so ecstatic when the letter arrived
A certified genius at the age of five
They planned his future so carefully
He was everything they hoped he'd be
He was a model child, a devoted son
Loved and admired by everyone
He played out every role, a "T.V. hero"
He lived his life in a video fantasy

He was good at school, never failed a grade
They gave him hopes and dreams, and taught him not to hate
He had rules he learned to break for fun
Now he's hidin', 'cause his fingerprints on the gun

Why'd ya' have to do it evil genius?
Was it justified in your mind?
Why'd ya' put us through it evil genius?
Was it justified in your mind anytime you held a grudge?

Was it something said that pushed you over the line?
Your best interests were in our minds
You kept it so well hidden, we never knew
No one ever expected anything like this from you

Why'd ya' have to do it evil genius?
Was it justified in your mind?
Why'd ya' put us through it evil genius?
Was it justified in your mind anytime you held a grudge?

Why'd ya' have to do it evil genius?
Was it justified in your mind?
Why'd ya' put us through it evil genius?
Was it justified in your mind anytime you held a grudge?

Hard To Believe Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time

Yesterday's a by-line, words upon a page
Tomorrow is a deadline, sudden and it's strange
Hard to believe
You ever would leave, but you did
Hard to believe
You ever would leave

Nowhere to go, can't sit still
Look for a motive in the time that I kill
Thinking of ways
To fill up my empty days, to fill up my empty days

Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so, it's hard to believe
Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so, it's hard to believe

Love is such a fine line, the finest line I've known
But sorrow is no life line when you're all alone

Hard to believe
You ever would leave, but you did
Hard to believe
You ever would leave

Can't sleep a wink, up all night
The truth hurts, you know it cuts like a knife
Thinking of ways
To fill up my empty life, to fill up my empty life

Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so, it's hard to believe
Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so, it's hard to believe

Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so, it's hard to believe
Hard to believe
You'd leave when I need you
I need you so, it's hard to believe

Helter Skelter Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Precious Time
(originally by The Beatles)

When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
An' I stop, an' I turn, an' I go for a ride
Til I get to the bottom
An' I see you again
Yeh
Do you, don't you, want me to love you?
I'm comin' down fast, but I'm miles above you
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Come on, tell me the answer
Well, you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer
Lookout

Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter, Yeh

Will you, won't you, want me to make you?
I'm comin' down fast
But don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Lookout

When I get to the bottom
I go back to the top of the slide
An' I stop, an' I turn, an' I go for a ride
Til I get to the bottom
An' I see you again
Yeh

Do you, don't you, want me to make you?
I'm coming down fast, but don't let me break you
Tell me, tell me, tell me your answer
Well, you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter
Helter Skelter

Helter Skelter, Yeh

Shadows Of The Night Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

You said, oh girl, it's a cold world
When you keep it all to yourself
I said, you can't hide on the inside
All the pain you've ever felt
Ransom my heart, but baby don't look back
'Cause we got nobody else

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

You know that sometimes, it feels like
It's all moving way too fast
Use every alibi and words you deny
That love ain't meant to last
You can cry tough, baby
It's all right
You can let me down easy
But not tonight

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

And now the hands of time are standin' still
Midnight angel, won't you say you will

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

We're running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, it'll be all right
Surrender all your dreams to me tonight
They'll come true in the end

Looking For A Stranger Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

I've had it with the same old routine
I've had it with the same old faces, places, every night in my life
I started feeling washed up, washed out, hung up, wrung out, left to dry
Every night
But

I know, yeah I know you're out there, somewhere
Oh I, I can almost hear you callin'
I'm looking for a stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight

I'm tired of the same old "Hello baby, how you're doin', call me often
Where have you been all my life", every night
But I know that someday, somewhere, I'll turn around and you'll be there
Ooh in my life, every night
And

I know, yeah I know you're out there, somewhere
Oh I, I can almost hear you callin'
I'm looking for a stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight

And
I know, yeah I know you're out there, somewhere
Oh I, I can almost hear you callin'
I'm looking for a stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight
I'm looking for a stranger in the night
I need a little danger in my life, tonight

Anxiety (Get Nervous) Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

Get nervous...get nervous
Get nervous...get nervous
Get nervous...get nervous
Get nervous...get nervous
Get nervous...get nervous

I feel a little shaky, I can't control my nerves
I know you think I'm freakin', but can't you feel the curves?
I swear to you this feeling, it scares me half to death
It gathers in my throat and it gathers up my breath

Anxiety - got me on the run
Anxiety - yeah, I just need someone
Anxiety - can't get nothin' done
Anxiety - spoils all the fun

I'm picking up the telephone, there's no one I can call
I need somebody fast, can't find no sleep at all
I wish I could relax, I just can't stop my mind
I wish I could collapse but my body's not that kind

Anxiety - got me on the run
Anxiety - yeah, I just need someone
Anxiety - can't get nothin' done
Anxiety - spoils all the fun

Can't you hear my heartbeat, hear the way it sounds?
Can't you hear my heartbeat, y' hear the way it pounds?
Just give me somethin' to slow it down, yeah

Sometimes in the city, sometimes in my car
I pound on the windows like a bee inside a jar

Anxiety - got me on the run
Anxiety - yeah, I just need someone
Anxiety - can't get nothin' done
Anxiety - spoils all the fun

Anxiety - got me on the run
Anxiety - yeah, I just need someone
Anxiety - can't get nothin' done
Anxiety - spoils all the fun

Get nervous...get nervous
Get nervous...get nervous
Get nervous...get nervous

Fight It Out Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

I heard you say you're feelin' like a change now
Maybe, baby this could be arranged now
But I warn you that no exotic scenery
Will solve your problems or make you feel easy
You say you're happy, but I see apprehension
That little laugh of yours doesn't hide the tension
The precious book you clutch so tightly in your hands
Won't help you sleep at night, won't iron out your plans

You gotta fight it out with your heart
You got to fight it, though it tears you apart
You got to fight it out, my friend
You got to do it for yourself
You got to say when

You ask advice, then resent my observations
If I didn't care, then I wouldn't make them
Can't change the past, so why let it haunt you
Can paint the future, but first you have to want to

You gotta fight it out with your heart
You got to fight it, though it tears you apart
You got to fight it out, my friend
You got to do it for yourself
You got to say when

I can see how much you hurt inside
I know all about the tears you hide

You gotta fight it out with your heart
You got to fight it, though it tears you apart
You got to fight it out, my friend
You gotta fight it out with your heart
You got to fight it, though it tears you apart
You got to fight it out, my friend

You know that the lonely pay a price for love in the end
You know that the lonely pay a price for love in the end
It's always the lonely who pay a price for love in the end

The Victim Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

You've been set up one too many times
The perfect victim for the perfect crime
You left yourself wide open to the pain
So close your eyes now
You're out walkin' in the rain
You've got a burning desire to be the victim
You're bleeding from the soul
You're hurting from the heart
Things you can't be told are gonna tear you apart

Your choice of lovers, never very bright
Your father worried, but even he gave up the fight
You always think their hearts are made of gold
And you're the savior, to coax the warmth out of the cold

You've got a burning desire to be the victim
You're bleeding from the soul
You're hurting from the heart
Things you can't be told are gonna tear you apart
Cause you're the victim

Break the pattern, you've gotta break away
Break the pattern before it gets too late

You've got a burning desire to be the victim
You're bleeding from the soul
You're hurting from the heart
Things you're never told are gonna tear you apart
Cause you're the victim

Little Too Late Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

I hear you had a good offer down on third avenue
You tell me that was the reason for whatcha', you put me through, yeah
And now you come collapsin' back I feel the heat of your attack
Want me to take you back I'm givin' you the sack so don't waste your time

It's a little too little, it's a little too late
I'm a little too hurt and there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
You can cry to me baby but there's only so much I can take
Oh, it's a little too little it's a little too late

You say you had a good time but did ya' think it was for free, yeah
And how much did it get ya' and all their flattery
And now you come back, runnin' for protection
You've been bitten by love and stung by rejection
You can't connect what did you expect? I'm still gettin' over you

It's a little too little, it's a little too late
I'm a little too hurt and there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
You can cry to me baby but there's only so much I can take
Oh, it's a little too little it's a little too late

It's a little too little, it's a little too late
I'm a little too hurt and there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
You can cry to me baby but there's only so much I can take
Oh, it's a little too little it's a little too late

It's a little too little, it's a little too late
I'm a little too hurt and there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
Well you can cry to me baby but there's only so much
Only so much I can take
Oh, it's a little too little it's a little too late

It's a little too little, it's a little too late
I'm a little too hurt and there's nothin' left that I've gotta say
Well you can cry to me baby but there's only so much
Only so much I can take
Oh, it's a little too little, it's a little too little
It's a little too little it's a little too late

I'll Do It Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

Well the unseen sights look good to you
I notice how you survey the room
Awkward conversation and you're too polite
You know that's always a clue
I'm wasting my time tryin' to tell ya'
That you're making the mistake of your life
Cause you're so sure that you need to go
At any cost, at any price

But, I'll do it
I'll send you out on your own, with no guarantee
I'll do it
But when you wanna come home and you look for love
Don't look for me!

Tell me, when did everything start to go wrong?
And why was I the last one to know?
You're so good at hidin' your feelings
I'm so good at lettin' mine show

Well I know how great it feels together
But that just isn't enough
Cause I need more than your bedside manner
I need someone to love

So, I'll do it
I guess there's nothin' to say, its all been said
I'll do it
Make sure you want it this way, 'cause when it's done this time
I'll be gone

I'll do it
I'll send you out on your own, with no guarantee
I'll do it
But when you wanna come home and you look for love
Don't look for me!

I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it

I Want Out Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

Ooh baby, got a hold on me, I can't deny it
You locked the door and you swallowed the key
And I...and I kept quiet

Yeah baby, got a hold on me
I didn't want to be alone
I stayed with you 'cause I really believed
That I couldn't make it on my own

But I'm getting a little bit smarter
Gettin' tired of playin' the martyr
And I know what you're all about
I want out!
I want out!

Ooh baby, your lovin' told on me
I couldn't smile anymore
My friends all told me, baby, can't you see?
But I wasn't seeing clear before

Now I'm getting a little bit smarter
Gettin' tired of playin' the martyr
And I know what you're all about
I want out!
I want out!

Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I didn't want to be alone
I stayed with you 'cause I really believed
That I couldn't make it
I want out!

Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!
Ooh baby, got a hold on me
I want out!

Tell It To Her Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

I'm the one you put all your stories on
She's the one, you keep it a secret from
She believes you, just like I did at the start
When you wrapped up my heart, and played with my emotions

Tell it to her
Cause I don't want to hear it
Tell it to her
I know why she would
There's a fool born every minute
When you're in it, it feels so good
Why don't you Tell it to her

She don't know the darker side of you
She don't know what your love will put her through
Your sweet talkin' makes her feel so safe and sure
But that won't change what you are
And I'm the one who knows it

Tell it to her
Cause I don't want to hear it
Tell it to her
I know why she would
There's a fool born every minute
When you're in it, it feels so good
Why don't you Tell it to her

Cause I don't want to hear it
Tell it to her
I know why she would
There's a fool born every minute
When you're in it, it feels so good

You're the one who had it all and wanted more
But you can't do it to me anymore

Tell it to her
Cause I don't want to hear it
Tell it to her
I know why she would
There's a fool born every minute
When you're in it, it feels so good
Why don't you Tell it to her

Cause I don't want to hear it
Tell it to her
I don't want to hear it
Tell it to her
Go on and tell it to her
Tell it to her
There's a fool born every minute
Tell it to her
Go on and tell it to her
Tell it to her

Silent Partner Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Get Nervous

Background voices calling from a distance
See no evil, hear no evil
Static on the line of least resistance
Don't say nothing at all
Don't say nothing at all
Don't say nothing at all
I'm hanging on a wire, waitin' on the word
I'm never seen, you're never heard
The object of desire is seldom ever clear
I reach for you but all I hear
Are the background voices calling from a distance
Silent partners, listen to the hush

A lover without words is easily deceived
And rumors easily believed
The matter of obsession is seldom ever clear
I turn around, you disappear
In background voices calling from a distance
Silent partners, listen to the hush
Silent partners
You know they don't say nothing at all

What about the things we never mention?
What about the things we never say?
Will we wind up targets of affection?
In silence, turning silent
The silent turn away

A paramour or less, is never really sure
Exactly what to listen for
In secret service to the things they never say
The Silent partners fade away

To background voices, calling from a distance
Silent partners, listen to the hush
Silent partners
You know they don't say nothing at all

Diamond Field Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

From the top of the hill
You can see all the lights of the diamond field
The treasure buried in plain sight
Where one mans loss is another mans gain
And no one cares about anything, worth caring about

Shall we go to the diamond field tonight
Tightrope walkin', in the web of light
Shall we go the diamond field and try
To seek the fortune in their eyes

One by one the lights go out
And the diamond field begins to fade

It turns back into cement and stone
Brick and asphalt, flesh and bone

Shall we go to the diamond field tonight
Tightrope walkin', in the web of light
Shall we go the diamond field and try
To seek the fortune in their eyes

Shall we go to the diamond field tonight
Tightrope walkin', in the web of light
Electric angles move against the night
Shining in the diamond field

We Belong Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

Many times I've tried to tell you
Many times I've cried alone
Always I'm surprised how well you
Cut my feelings to the bone

Don't wanna leave you really
I've invested too much time
To give you up that easy
To the doubts that complicate your mind

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We've both fallen under

Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

Maybe it's a sign of weakness
When I don't know what to say
Maybe I just wouldn't know
What to do with my strength anyway

Have we become a habit?
Do we distort the facts?
Now, there's no looking forward
Now, there's no turning back
When you say

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We've both fallen under

Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

Close your eyes and try to sleep now
Close your eyes and try to dream
Clear your mind and do your best
To try and wash the palette clean

We can't begin to know it
How much we really care
I hear your voice inside me
I see your face everywhere
Still you say

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We've both fallen under

Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder
We belong to the sound of the words
We've both fallen under

Whatever we deny or embrace
For worse or for better
We belong, we belong
We belong together

We belong to the light
We belong to the thunder

Painted Desert Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

I hear your heartbeat but you're never there
Like a mirage, you haunt me everywhere
All day long
I burn for you, lonely in the night
I tried to live alone, but I just can't get it right

Ya' know that, this town's like a painted desert
Dead heat, movin' in the city
I'm lost in a painted desert
In a Painted Desert without you

I've done some thinkin', now that you're not here
I know your reasons, and they're still not clear
All I'm sure of is what I got to lose
I tried to be a better loser, but it's just no use

Ya' know that this town's like a painted desert
Dead heat, movin' in the city
I'm lost in a painted desert
In a Painted Desert without you

Walkin' in the sundown, I search in vain
Waitin' on the wind that whispers out your name
Through concrete canyons echoing a world of other faces
No direction looks like home
Where is my oasis?

Ya' know that this town's like a painted desert
Dead heat, movin' in the city
I'm lost in a painted desert
In a painted desert without you
In a painted desert without you
Where is my oasis?

Temporary Heroes Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

I've seen all the downfalls
Temporary heroes (Whoa)
Misguided direction
Longing for perfection (Whoa)
Love and pain
Only for the foolish
Once again
Try to hide what's there inside
I'm the same, temporary hero
Who's to blame

Rituals and movements
Much too soon improvements
Hide many scars
Others and ours
Too late to discover
This untainted love is
Destined to be
A sad memory

Love and pain
Only for the foolish
Once again
Try to hide what's there inside
I'm the same, temporary hero
Who's to blame

So you take your chances
Watchful of the glances
But don't turn away
Though the wounds are healing
Don't tell me the feelings the same

Love and pain
Only for the foolish
Once again
Try to hide what's there inside
I'm the same, temporary hero
Who's to blame

Love In The Ice Age Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

It's a cold world that we live in all the people say
That this world is gettin' colder day by day
Too little warmth left in our lives
I don't know if what the people say is true
But I noticed there's a change in you
Too little warmth left in your eyes

I am freezing, no love in this ice age
Whoa, whoa
I am freezing, there's no love in this ice age
Whoa, whoa

There is friction without fire when the passions spent
As we shiver in the winter of our discontent
So little love left in our lives

Now we're standing in the shadows of a fading sun
Words like weapons, the cold war touches everyone
So little love left in our eyes

I am freezing, no love in this ice age
Whoa, whoa
I am freezing, there's no love in this ice age
Whoa, whoa

Feeling the chill that comes with the pain
Love in the ice age

I am freezing, no love in this ice age
Whoa, whoa
I am freezing, there's no love in this ice age
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

Ooh Ooh Song Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

Just when we think we conquered it
It seems we lose the fight again
But there's just no stoppin' it
It's like a bad dream that never ends
It puts up walls between us
That get harder and harder and harder
And harder and harder to remove
But we let it continue, like people in love always do
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

Let's not pretend that we're unique
'Cause everybody's tasted loves illusion
We try to hide the fact that we
Got lost between the chaos and confusion
And the love we feel
Is gettin' deeper and deeper and deeper
And deeper, and deeper by the minute

But we let it slip away
'Cause we don't know a good thing while we're in it

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

"Y el amor que sentimos es mas profundo" ("The love that we feel is deeper")

Outlaw Blues Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

You were better than the best
Stayed a notch above the rest
It was rainin' in heaven when you went down

Your mother cried, said she told you so
But you touched the devil and couldn't let go
No one controls the outlaw

You wrote the book with the movie in mind
An angel face with a criminal side
Celebrated as the rebel kind
The outlaw

I wonder if you knew they would
Turn your bad deeds into good
Paint you as a modern Robin Hood

It's high noon
Everywhere you go
And the guilt you feel is the weary soul
Of the outlaw

Hearts weren't made to be ruled
And rules weren't made to be broken
It's cold and lonely at the end of your life
And nobody sleeps 'til they turn out the lights
For the outlaw

Where you gonna go, where you gonna hide
It's cold and lonely for the outlaw
Where you gonna go, where you gonna hide
The outlaw

Suburban King Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

The alarm clock rings but you don't move
But the wife gets up and puts on her uniform
You hear her in the bathroom
Cause she's got that nagging cough
You put your head under the pillow
To forget you've been laid off
Suburban king
Suburban king
You had it printed on your van
Cause it had a pretty ring
Suburban king

The union man said you'd be recalled
But the company up and moved to Taiwan
You counted on the pension plan
But you were out of luck
The union says you only qualify
For twenty-five bucks

Suburban king
Suburban king
You had it printed on your van
Cause it had a pretty ring
Suburban king
Suburban king

Your American dream didn't mean a thing
Suburban king

Baby I forgot somethin', that's why I came home
It's somethin' I really need, I know you thought I was gone
No, it's not my gloves honey, it's not that cold today
It's nothin' I left behind, it's somethin' I got to say
I forgot to say I love you
And something else that I missed, to say how much I need you

In a crazy, crazy world like this
It's easy to feel all alone
You give me the strength I need to exist
Just hold me and don't let me go
In a crazy, crazy world like this

Sometimes I don't know lately, what will ease the pain?
On every corner of the street, sometimes it's all too insane
Baby you just got somethin', that's why I came home
It's somethin' I really need, an' now we can be alone

I just had to say I love you, and something else that I missed
To say how much I need you

In a crazy, crazy world like this
It's easy to feel all alone
You give me the strength I need to exist
Just hold me and don't let me go
In a crazy, crazy world like this

It's easy to fear the unknown
I always know when fate gives a twist
You'll be there to soften the blow

In a crazy, crazy world like this - ooh, ooh
You give me the strength I need to exist
Just hold me and don't let me go

In a crazy, crazy world like this
It's easy to feel all alone
I always know when fate gives a twist
You'll be there to soften the blow

In a crazy, crazy world like this - ooh, ooh
You give me the strength I need to exist
Just hold me and don't let me go

In a crazy, crazy world like this
When all my defences are low
I always know when fate gives a twist
You'll be there to soften the blow
In a crazy, crazy world like this.....

Takin' It Back Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Tropico

When they found you, you were driven and hungry
You were playin' for your life then
You were livin' for the chance to be heard
What they promised, what they offered
Was more than you'd ever hoped for
To walk away, ya' know that would've been absurd
And talk about absurdity, it was madness
It was everything in excess
It was too much, too many, and too little time
It was faceless people in jackets and ties
Who thought of you when they made love to their wives
Somehow, it wasn't what you had in mind

Tell 'em you're takin' it back
So they might as well get used to the idea
You're takin' it back, those cooperation days are over
You got no one to blame but yourself
So don't put it on nobody else
Put it behind you, start over, today

There were parties and photos and televised award shows
And covers of magazines
There was gold and platinum and everyone was smiling
You were coming apart at the seems
There were jerk offs too numerous to mention
When everybody shared the dream
But when it came time to share the nightmare
They were conveniently nowhere to be seen

Tell 'em you're takin' it back
So they might as well get used to the idea
You're takin' it back, those cooperation days are over
You got no one to blame but yourself
So don't put it on nobody else
Put it behind you, start over, today

Oh they'll argue what they gave you was exactly what you wanted
And just to be fair, ya' know that some of it's true
That's why ya' gotta be careful, 'bout your wishes
Take your time and think 'em over
Sometimes those wishes just might come true

Tell 'em you're takin' it back
So they might as well get used to the idea
You're takin' it back, those cooperation days are over
Tell 'em you've had enough, and if they don't like it it's tough
You're takin' it back, those cooperation days are over
You're takin' it back
Tell 'em you're takin' it back

Sex As A Weapon Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

You really do know how to strut that stuff
You really do know how to act tough
Your body's just like a centerfold
A fantasy, anyone would want to hold

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon

You know you're already my obsession
Stop using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop using sex as a weapon

With looks that kill and a mind that's twisted
I don't know why I can't resist it
I tell myself, look the other way
When you want me to, I, I always stay

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon

You know you're already my obsession
Stop using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop using sex as a weapon

You play with desire like it was a toy
How much affection can you destroy?
You wrap my heart around your little finger
Sex, sex, sex as a weapon

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon

You know you're already my obsession
Stop using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex

Stop using sex
Stop using sex
Using sex as a weapon, as a weapon

Le Bel Age Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

There comes a time, when you should see things clear
Free from my innocence, there is no circumstance too severe
Only the need for us, for us to believe again
There is a time, temptation's on the run
Dreamer you've had your way
Soldier you've had your day, in the sun
Now it's time, for us to begin again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

There comes a time (there comes a time)
When you must find your way
Begger has made his bed
Wrapped in a silhoutte, of gold and gray
Now it's time, yes it's time, for us to begin again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

Standing so close to me, the possibility
To change our destiny, I see it perfectly, moving so naturally
Nothing can stand in our way

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain (only)
Le bel age (only our love, only our love)
Close to the truth once again

Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

Le bel age (Le bel age)
Le bel age

Walking In The Underground Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

Cold sweat, sweat it out in the land of the midnight sun
Walk it off - sort it out, figure out what you're running from
I'm all alone on the outside of town
It's a wild night at the carnival of souls
They're strong armed in neon and out of control
It's late at night and no one's around
Walking in the underground

Night calls, and the sound marks the start of the masquerade
Sirens flash, stains the glass as you pass in the street parade
Loose change losers are double parked
Faces marked like cards at the bottom of the deck
Readin' the future no one expects
They don't look up as they shuffle down

Walking in the underground
Walking in the underground
Walking in the underground

Cold sweat, sweat it out in the land of the midnight sun
Walk it off - sort it out, figure out what you're running from
Nobody's children, more lost than found
Play in the shadows like beautiful dolls
Backlit in moonlight, steppin' on stars
A silent dance to an empty sound

Walking in the underground
Walking in the underground
Ooh, walking in the underground

Yeah walkin' Ooh, Ooh, Ooh,
Walk On
Ooh, Ooh.........
Yeah, Yeah.......

Big Life Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

You punch your way through a world of good intentions
People don't matter, all you want to do is win
And nothing ever comes too fast for a man of means
'Cause all you want is everything
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Whoa, ooh, ooh, ooh

Time finds you in a new green situation
Your savoir faire fits you like a second skin
And nothing ever comes too fast for a man of means
'Cause all you want is everything

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life

Nothing can stop you now
No one can show you how
Nothing can touch you now

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life

Nothing can stop you now
No one can show you how
And nothing can touch you now

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life, yeah

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life

Big life
Big life
Big life

Red Vision Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

Firewalkers feel no pain from the coals
Ruled by passion beyond their control
Vengeance is king in the zone of red vision
Sparks fly and tempers flair
You see the enemy everywhere
Hate shines like burning bridges in your eyes
In love and war we stand alone
Trustin' nothin' but our own, red vision

Anger sharpens your point of view
Fans the fire in and around you
Farenheit in the realm of your senses
In love and war we stand alone
Trusting nothing but our own, red vision

Mind like a steel trap, heart like a prison
With tears of rage, we burn in our red vision

Once again, I'll walk the coals
Tiptoe through the minefields of your soul
I've come to take you home

Red vision
Red vision
Red vision
Red vision

Oh, red vision.......

7 Rooms Of Gloom Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way
(originally by Four Tops)

I see a house, a house of stone
A lonely house, 'cause now you're gone
7 rooms, that's all it is
7 rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness
You can take the dream I had for us, and turn that dream into dust
I watch a phone that never rings
I watch your door that never brings
Brings you back into my life, and turn this darkness into light
I'm all alone in this house, turn this house into a home

I need your touch to comfort me
Your tender, tender arms that once held me
Without your love, your love inside
This house is just a place to run and hide
7 rooms, that's all it is
7 rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness

Don't make me live from day to day
Watching a clock that ticks away
Another day, another way, another reason for me to say
I need you here, here with me
I need you darling, desperately

I'm all alone, all alone in this house that's not a home

I miss your love, I once had known
I miss your kiss that was my very, very own
In the silence that surrounds me, lonely walls - they stand
7 rooms, that's all it is
7 rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness

And all the windows are painted black
I'll wait right here until you get back
I'll keep waiting, and waiting, until your face again I see
Darling, yeah hea, huh

I want you back now
I keep waiting, and waiting
I want you back now
I keep waiting, and waiting, come on back now....
I keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
I want you back now, whoa - now
Come on back now...

Run Between The Raindrops Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

It's always one thing or another, seems like we never get ahead
Reaching out for the brass ring, and landing in the dirt instead
We can't get past yesterday, we're only counting down from ten
It seems like every move we make, brings us back where we began
You've gotta run between the raindrops
If you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, between the raindrops
Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, - run Baby run

Somewhere there's a sun that's shining
Somewhere we'll find a life that's good
Some way I'm gonna make it happen
Just like you always knew I could

We're treading water on a river of tears
And I don't know what to do
I can take a beating, but I ain't gonna let it happen to you, you

You've gotta run between the raindrops
If you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, between the raindrops
Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
You gotta run, run, run, - run Baby run

We're treading water on a river of tears
And I don't know what to do

You've gotta run between the raindrops
If you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, between the raindrops
Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, - run Baby run

Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
You gotta run, run, run, - run Baby run

You gotta run, run, run, - run Baby run

Invincible Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

This bloody road remains a mystery.
This sudden darkness fills the air.
What are we waiting for?
Won't anybody help us?
What are we waiting for?
We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
This shattered dream you cannot justify.
We're gonna scream until we're satisfied.
What are we running for? We've got the right to be angry.
What are we running for when there's nowhere we can run to anymore?
We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
And with the power of conviction there is no sacrifice.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

Won't anybody help us?
What are we running for when there's nowhere
nowhere we can run to anymore?
We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
And with the power of conviction there is no sacrifice.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

The Art Of Letting Go Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Seven The Hard Way

Here we go again, round and round again
Gettin' nowhere fast
It's the same old thing
One more final scene never meant to last
Who'll be the first one who's leaving?
Who'll be the last one to cry?
Something just keeps me believing, in our love tonight
I can't seem to say good-bye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

So we take our time, and we make our moves
Oh, so carefully
Old ways seem so safe, habits hard to break
When you're here with me

I don't know how hard to hold you
No easy way to be free
Something just keeps me believing, that we're meant to be

I can't seem to say good-bye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

For all we feel, and all we know
It's not easy letting go

I can't seem to say good-bye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

We got beyond letting go (we got beyond letting go)
You gotta let go, you gotta let go
Yeah, Yeah

All Fired Up Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Wide Awake In Dreamland

Livin' with my eyes closed, goin' day to day
I never knew the difference, I never cared either way
Lookin' for a reason, searchin' for a sign
Reachin' out with both hands, I gotta feel the kick inside

All fired up
(Now I believe there comes a time)
All fired up
(When everything just falls in line)
All fired up
(We live an' learn from our mistakes)
All fired up, fired up, fired up, hey

Ain't nobody livin' in a perfect world
And everybody's out there, cryin' to be heard
And now I got a new fire, burnin' in my eyes
Lightin' up the darkness, movin' like a meteorite

All fired up
(Now I believe there comes a time)
All fired up
(When everything just falls in line)
All fired up
(We live an' learn from our mistakes)
All fired up, fired up, fired up
(The deepest cuts are healed by faith)

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith
Now I believe

All fired up
(Now I believe there comes a time)
All fired up
(When everything just falls in line)
All fired up
(We live an' learn from our mistakes)
All fired up, fired up, fired up, hey
(The deepest cuts are healed by faith)

Now I believe there comes a time
When everything just falls in line
We live an' learn from our mistakes
The deepest cuts are healed by faith

One Love Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Wide Awake In Dreamland

Once there was a man, and he lived to sing the lions song
As he traveled on the road of hope
One love is the light, shining over every mountaintop
It will lead us to the higher ground
One day every heart will beat strong against the night
Let it be done right now

Once there was a man, and his words became a song of love
And his song became the golden dream
One love is the light, shining over everyone that believes
It will lead us to the higher ground
One day every eye will see truth before the light
Let it be done right now

Some wait, so long
Because our love is strong
This hard road traveled on
Will lead us home, forever

Hear the lion's song, voices cryin' like a desert wind
Yeah he's gone unto his father's land
Afrika tonight, for we truly are one in our hearts
Colors woven in the golden dream

One day every eye will see truth before the light
Let it be done right now
One day every voice will speak strong against the night
Let us be one right now
So let it be

We are the children of a thousand days
We are the people of the hard rain
We are the children of a thousand days
We are the people of the hard rain
We are the people of the hard rain

Let's Stay Together Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Wide Awake In Dreamland

People walkin' 'round, all lost and confused
Ready to throw their lives out in the gutter
Ain't no love between 'em, father to son
Man to woman, brother to brother
You and me we move, in opposite directions
Like two spheres on their separate planes
Ain't nobody loved me better than you done
So why can't we just find a way to (live) - stay together

Let's stay together
Life's too hard to make it all alone
An' peace and harmony don't come in packages with bows
An' true love ain't somethin' you find layin' around
Don't you know, let's stay together

Let's stay together, let's stay together

Mothers don't you turn your backs on your children
Children don't you leave the family
Ain't no point in livin', life all by yourself
So why can't we just find a way to (live) - stay together

Let's stay together
Life's too hard to make it all alone
An' peace and harmony don't come in packages with bows
An' true love ain't somethin' you find layin' around
Don't you know, let's stay together

Let's stay together
Life's too hard to make it all alone
An' peace and harmony don't come in packages with bows
An' true love ain't somethin' you find layin' around
Don't you know, let's stay together

Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together

Yeah - peace and love and war and hate
Something's best and something just to get away

Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together, let's stay together
Let's stay together

Don't Walk Away Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Wide Awake In Dreamland

Standin' in the doorway, forgot to say one thing
You've always had the power to lift my wings
I know I shouldn't need so much, an' we could say goodbye
Oh yes I am a dreamer, I still see us flyin' high

We can start over, darlin' it's clear
Love is what brought you here

Don't walk away
Oh, to see if I follow
Don't walk away, victory's hollow
Been that road, it didn't take us home
Turn around, you won't be alone

Somethin' brings us together, keeps tearin' us apart
The wounded are much wiser, we'll just take it from the start

We can start over, darlin' it's clear
Love is what brought you here

Don't walk away
Oh, to see if I follow
Don't walk away, victory's hollow
Been that road, it didn't take us home
Turn around, you won't be alone

We can start over, darlin' it's clear
Love is what brought you here

Don't walk away
Oh, to see if I follow
Don't walk away, victory's hollow
Been that road, it didn't take us home
Turn around, you won't be alone
Don't walk away
Don't walk away!

Oh, to see if I follow
Don't walk away, victory's hollow
Been that road, it didn't take us home
Turn around, you won't be alone
Don't walk away
Oh, to see if I follow
Oh, Don't walk away, Don't walk away
Been that road, it didn't take us home
Turn around, turn around, you won't be, you won't be alone

Too Long A Soldier Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Wide Awake In Dreamland

We were the children of '45
Loaded like pistols and taught how to die
We looked the enemy straight in the eye (and never surrender)
Through trenches dug in the back of my mind
I go over the top time after time
Me and the ones we left behind (faces I'll always remember)
Now there's no fight left within me, but the writing of this wrong
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
Like brothers in blood it seems that we've been -too long a soldier

In the city of monuments, among the flags of all governments
The order of battle is written in the shadows of a hard black line
Where people cry for a nations scars
And heros sleep beneath a blanket of stars
Too young to die, but never too old to play the general's game

Now there's no life left within them, but the memory lingers on
As nations we're divided, but as people we are one
For brothers in blood we sing that we've been -Too long a soldier

Eternal flames blow in the wind, I've been too long a soldier
Captain of the guard I'm coming in, Too Long, too long a soldier
I've seen so much worth dying for, so little worth killing over

Hey, hey

Eternal flames blow in the wind, I've been too long a soldier
Captain of the guard I'm coming in, too Long, too long a soldier
I've seen so much worth dying for, so little worth killing over
Soldiers gone before me, I will surely fade away

My eyes have seen the glory, and the suffering and the pain
I've been too long a soldier, too Long, too long a soldier
I've been too long a soldier

Too long a soldier
Eternal flames blow in the wind
Too long a soldier
My eyes have seen the glory of
Too long a soldier
Oh say can you see by the dawns early light
Oooh, ooh, ooh
Oooh, ooh, ooh

Cool Zero Lyrics

Artist : PAT BENATAR
Album : Wide Awake In Dreamland

Art attacks from subway walls
Sprayed like bullets into concrete face
Everywhere you turn, knuckles are crackin'
Suburban monkeys break ghetto habits
Body guns loaded for a dime
See 'em shed their celebrity skin
For a life of trash and crime

Cool zero
You wanna know where the wild ones go
Cool zero
You wanna know where the bodies are burned
Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot
Cool zero (cool zero) cool zero

Nothin' stops the hit parade
Money makers will be shaken down
Everywhere you go, fingers are snappin'
Commercial prophets shout revolution
Throwin' dirt upon a good mans name
Watch 'em sell his soul for shoes
And dance upon his grave

Cool zero
You wanna know where the wild ones go
Cool zero
You wanna know where the bodies are burned
Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot
Cool zero (cool zero) cool zero

In this junk food civilization
They will eat and not think twice
For a dance in the dragons jaws
They will gladly pay the price
An' eat their fill - ooh, ooh - hey

Headlines turn in violent days
Run like blood across the printed page
Everywhere you look, atoms are smashin'
Politicians smilin' for the camera
And the pictures make you wanna scream
Maybe baby, we'll just play it cool
Like Elvis at 19

Cool zero
You wanna know where the wild ones go
Cool zero
You wanna know where the bodies are burned
Crawlin' under every rock, you gotta see what time forgot
Cool zero (cool zero) cool zero

Cool zero (cool zero) cool zero ....
