Lyrics

Tyketto - Don't Come Easy

FOREVER YOUNG

No sleeping
She waits tables late
Trying to stay tough
Never ending
However long she waits
It’s just not enough

He’s sleeping late
No work around
Broken dreams come tumbling down
He’s been down every road
In this old, dead-end town

And now they’re
Two more runners in the night

Forever Young
Time on our side
We’ve got tomorrow
We’ve got tonight
Two hungry hearts
Out on the run
We’ll always be
Forever Young

She’s crying
Two worlds collide
Can’t take anymore
He’s denying
The kick inside
When Daddy slams the door

He says,
“We made a deal
You and I
Cross our hearts and hope to die
No matter what may come
We’ll never say good-bye”

“And now we’re
Two more runners in the night”

Forever Young
Time on our side
We’ve got tomorrow
We’ve got tonight
Two hungry hearts
Out on the run
We’ll always be
Forever Young



WINGS
1/10-1/17/89

Falling so hard for you woman
Don’t you say that love’s a crime
The jury can call me in guilty
I want what’s mine
Now I’m crying out in anger
The night has taken you away
Fighting the sins of another
Can lock you away

And you can knock on any door
From now until eternity
And you can keep on looking anywhere
You won’t find another man like me

If I only had the wings to fly
Leave the chains of earth below
Take my heart up in the sky
I would never let you go

Cuts like a knife to remember
Touches burning skin to skin
The sweat on our bodies steaming
The love that I’m in

And you can knock on any door
From now until eternity
And you can keep on looking anywhere
You won’t find another man like me

If I only had the wings to fly
Leave the chains of earth below
Take my heart up in the sky
I would never let you go
If I could hear the thunder in your heart
I know my love would light the sky
I could do anything
If I had the wings to fly

Reach out your hand to me, baby
I’ve got the strength to lead the way
Give me your all and nothing
Could drag me away

If I only had the wings to fly
Leave the chains of earth below
Take my heart up in the sky
I would never let you go
If I could hear the thunder in your heart
I know my love would light the sky
I could do anything
If I had the wings to fly



BURNING DOWN INSIDE

Play the game of indecision
Come what may she knows it isn’t
Just his voice on the line
One final time she hears thunder

Precious lies when she played her part
Still she tries because hope dies hard
With broken wings
She can feel the sting like a back hand
Over the telephone

And her eyes shimmer twilight
Trembling heart it gives up the fight
As she bites it back
Knowing that the dam could break wide open

Burning down inside
Nobody wants to be lonely
Burning down inside
The harder they come
The harder she falls

To her face I show my armor
Walk away before I do more harm
And with the damage done
She won’t know where to run
Or who to run to

Burning down inside
Nobody wants to be lonely
Burning down inside
The harder they come
The harder she falls

Turning like a spinning wheel
Dancing on her head
Tries so hard to walk away
She falls in love instead

My head says we should always go
Separate ways
Never get too close
Where she can hear my heart
But if she comes apart I’ll be waiting

Burning down inside
Nobody wants to be lonely
Burning down inside
The harder they come
The harder she falls



SEASONS
4/21/-5/2/89


So long ago she took my hand
I heard the sound of the sea sinking in the sand
But we changed like the seasons
I’ll never understand
Seasons they fly
Stealing, they never will say why
They’ve come and gone
Taking their time
Like ships in the night
They pass along

When I’m down
I’ve got the midnight flyer, westbound city blues
Got my walking papers, got my walking shoes
Oh babe, you know I’m coming home to you

I see your face on every stranger passes by
And I can’t keep desire form my mind

Seasons they fly
Stealing, they never will say why
They’ve come and gone
Taking their time
Like ships in the night
They pass along

When I find you
I’m a wild horse ride that can’t be denied no more
You can put me on a track and point me straight back home
Or you can break me and close the door

I see your face on every stranger passes by
And I can’t keep desire form my mind

Seasons they fly
Stealing, they never will say why
They’ve come and gone
Taking their time
Like ships in the night
They pass along

Now this coffee’s getting cold
And I’ve read through your letter
So many damned times
I know where I’ve got to go
And I should have known better
Than to waste so much time

Seasons they fly
Stealing, they never will say why
They’ve come and gone
Taking their time
Like ships in the night
They pass along



STANDING ALONE

Staring out the window
Like I’m waiting for a change
As if I stared long enough
I’d see it when it came
A used up book of numbers
By the silent telephone
Called up every one I found
But didn’t talk to no one

And the rain comes down
As if it’s trying to wash me away
And there ain’t no romantic movie lines
Like they say

Standing alone
Like I got nowhere to go
Standing alone
Like the day that I was born
Out on my own
I believe this boy has grown
Standing alone

There ain’t no way to take a blow
When every cheek’s been turned
I can’t show another side when
Every side’s been burned
I am helpless
Can’t fight a raging heart
And I go no use for being

Torn apart
And the world don’t seem to have no use for me
’Cause you’re given nothing
And nothing isn’t free

Standing alone
Like I got nowhere to go
Standing alone
Like the day that I was born
Out on my own
I believe this boy has grown
Standing alone

You can’t keep it all inside
I need someone else to
Stand with me by my side
Give me something to fight
Something to hold on to
I just don’t want to be standing alone

And the rain comes down
As if it’s trying to wash me away
And there ain’t no romantic movie lines
Like they say

Standing alone
Like I got nowhere to go
Standing alone
Like the day that I was born
Out on my own
I believe this boy has grown
Standing alone



LAY YOUR BODY DOWN
10/11/88


Painted lady, doing what you do
Drive me crazy, I’m gonna put the bite on you
Working for the man, working all you can

Legs eleven, burning like acetylene
Real high steppin’, my baby runs on gasoline
Heat me up or cool me down
You best spread that honey ‘round

She got it all right
She work it all night
She got it skin tight
I wish she’d wrap that stuff around me

Stand up, get down
Won’t you lay your body down?
Kick back, hand jive
Sure beats working for a living
Stand up, get down
Won’t you lay your body down?
Kick back, slow ride
Give that girl a hand tonight

I’m addicted to the taste of bittersweet
Terminal afflicted, I want to live on Bourbon Street
Crazy for the girls
All the women in the world

I got it all right
I got it all night
I need it skin tight
I wish she’d wrap that stuff around me

Stand up, get down
Won’t you lay your body down?
Kick back, hand jive
Sure beats working for a living
Stand up, get down
Won’t you lay your body down?
Kick back, slow ride
Give that girl a hand tonight

Eva likes to play with all her toys
Simone she knows just what we enjoy
Raven’s misbehavin’ for the boys
In company T
I am begging baby
Won’t you do one thing for me?

Stand up, get down
Won’t you lay your body down?
Kick back, hand jive
Sure beats working for a living
Stand up, get down
Won’t you lay your body down?
Kick back, slow ride
Give that girl a hand tonight



WALK ON FIRE

Out of love and time I’ve been shut down
Spinning around in circles left me upside down
Turned my heart to stone
A rock don’t bleed
Hard is a prisoner that can’t break free

You come along with fire and dynamite
Blew the roof right off of
This poor boys life
I’m a cat, I howl, striking home
Back in business and I’m not alone

Baby, I know
It’s getting better even if it’s coming slow
Maybe this time
I can do anything with you by my side

Walk on
I could walk on fire
Face the wind and stand true
Walk on
I could walk on fire
You don’t know what I wouldn’t do
For you

Now I’ve got heart and soul back on the line
Some think to steal you; they’re welcome to try
I can say that you are the reason why
It’s a game for two and it’s you and I

Baby, I know
It’s getting better even if it’s coming slow
Maybe this time
I can do anything with you by my side

Walk on
I could walk on fire
Face the wind and stand true
Walk on
I could walk on fire
You don’t know what I wouldn’t do
For you



NOTHING BUT LOVE
3/20/89


What is this thing pulling at my heart?
How does she keep from falling apart?
What do we have when things get rough?
I heard the word it’s nothing but love

How can a man bear the weight of the world?
What can he do to hold on to you girl?
What power keeps him from crying enough?
I heard the word it’s nothing but love

It ain’t nothing but love
That’s what I’m thinking of
It ain’t nothing but love
Burning in my blood
Wo-o-o
Wo-o-o-o

What is the thunder that can tear down the walls?
What is the hammer that can forge us all?
What secret made them kill my lord above?
He had the answer, nothing but love

It ain’t nothing but love
That’s what I’m thinking of
It ain’t nothing but love
Drowning in the flood
Wo-o-o
Wo-o-o-o

The sparkle in your eyes
The tremble in your lips
Electric in your touch
Losing all my grip
Everything you are
All that I can be
As I am to you
So you are to me

It ain’t nothing but love
That’s what I’m thinking of
It ain’t nothing but love
Burning in my blood
Wo-o-o
Wo-o-o-o
It ain’t nothing but love
That’s what I’m thinking of
It ain’t nothing but love
Drowning in the flood
Wo-o-o
Wo-o-o-o
Wo-o-o
Wo-o-o-o



STRIP ME DOWN
2/18/89

Sticky sweet said, “Won’t you come with me?”
I did not dare refuse her company
She don’t dance, she can’t count
We got nothing to talk about
There was one thing left she had to do with me

She said, “Move a little to the left,
Move a little to the right
And strip me down
Let your fingers do the walking
Strip me down, down
Down, down, down”

She got hot and said she wanted more
There was five alarms called in from right next door
Pumping iron, pumping sweat
You know how bad baby gets
You got to give it your all before you put it to bed,
No more!

And she said, “Move a little to the left,
Move a little to the right,
You’re messing with some bad company,
And I can play with you all night,

So strip me down
Let your fingers do the walking
Strip me down, down
Down, down, down
Strip me down,
I’ll let my drummer do the talking,
Strip me down,
Down, down, down”

She said, “Ooh, would you like to play a game?
You know the results will be the same.”
She bit down, like a shark
I should have known that the cards were marked
Whoa no! Here I go again

Strip me down
Let your fingers do the walking
Strip me down, down
Down, down, down
Strip me down,
I let my drummer do the talking,
Strip me down,
Down, down, down
Strip me down
Let your fingers do the walking
Strip me down, down
Down, down, down
Strip me down,
I let my Mr. Clayton do the talking,
Strip me down,
Down, down, down



SAIL AWAY
3/14-2/28/90

I was looking out on dry land
No intentions, didn’t have no plans
That’s when I knew, no doubt
I had hit bottom and I was getting out
No more people to hold me down
Fight the ghosts in my home town
All the walls will crumble down

So I called up my man Michael
Drop everything and run
We don’t need directions
To do what we need done
And we learned to travel lightly
We learned to travel strong
If we never lost the fire
We’d win before too long

No you don’t look back
And you can’t delay
You got to sail away
And sail away
We may not ever be coming back this way
Sail away
Another place to be another day
Sail away, sail away

And we took on trouble laughing
Was nothing could go wrong
Then we met with two more strangers
That were friends before too long
And we swore to stand together
And take on the whole world
No regrets, no longing
For things the way they were

No you don’t look back
And you can’t delay
You got to sail away
Sail away
We may not ever be coming back this way
And sail away
Another place to be another day
Sail away, sail away

No more people to hold me down
Fight the ghosts in my home town
All the walls will crumble down
And sail away
We may not ever be coming back this way
And sail away
Another place to be another day
Sail away
We may not ever be coming back this way
And sail away
Another place to be another day
