20TH CENTURY NEW SALVATION - HUNTER-GREER.
© Hunter - Greer

This is the devil talking, and there's a few things
I really feel that I should say
I try hard to do what devils do, but lately you've been
getting in the way

It's my job to strangle justice, twist freedom and turn people's heads to stone
but it don't help my reputation none when you're doing
a fine job on your own

I seen you trading drugs and diamonds,
trading guns and gold
trading blood for money...trading off your souls
same old devil, different clothes
20th Century New Salvation
Now, the object of being the devil is to make people suffer, really make 'em burn
but if you're doin it on your own I'll just sit back,
kick my feet up, and see what I can learn.

 

 

 

 

 

I'll watch you run out in The Garden,
and make that final kiss
it's the chance to be like me that you never could resist...

trading drugs and diamonds, trading guns and gold
trading blood for money...trading off your souls
same old devil, different clothes
20th Cenury New Salvation

You got freedom bound and gagged,
and you got justice dying of thirst
and you got so many ways of making sure people suffer - women and children first...

Twentieth century New Salvation.

 

 

ABSOLUTELY YOURS - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

How many times do you want me to say I love you
a hundred times? - well I'll say it more
'cause whatever I've got, baby I will give you
yeah whatever I've got is absolutely yours
You've got my heart and soul and body completely
nothing less, I ain'y got nothing more
yeah whatever you want you've got it
I am absolutely yours

we're stuck out on the fringes here like exiles
sending messages, ship to shore
I might not be exactly what you wanted, but whatever else
I am - I'm absolutely Yours

You wanna talk about commitment like a question
well me, I'm committed to the core
so baby you don't have to question,
well me, I'm committed to the core
so baby you don't have to question,
you don't have to wonder anymore
'cause you got my mind and my body completely -
nothing less, nothing more
and I'm absolutely absolute, absolutely, absolutely yours

stuck out on the fringes here like exiles,
sending messages ship to shore
I might not be exactly what you wanted, but whatever else
I am - I'm absolutely Yours.

Yeah, we're stuck out on the fringes here like exiles
send a message, ship to shore
'cause tonight I need a lover just as much as you,
so forget about what was, amd what might be - tonight:
I'm absolutely Yours.

 

 

COWBOYS IN HONG KONG - RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane/Ken Greer/Rob Baker


Me and some friends who
We been buddies since Boca Raton
Signed on a ship to
Take a trip to old Taiwan
Got as far as Siam
Took it on the lamb
Arrived in Hong Kong with all our money gone
We joined up with a a gang when
We found we couldn't go on

We still remain here
Though we don't belong
That's what they call us
Cowboys In Hong Kong

The stakes were high tonight
We're going to break on through
We're hiding in the tall grass
Waiting for our signal to move
Our friends are inside
They were beaten they were tied
We've got to get them out
Before they blow our cover wide
Some sad GI Joe's
Mind wanders home
Thinks about a girl left behind

 

 

 

We're freedom fighters
And so we say
They like to tell us
That anyway
We still remain here
Though we don't belong
That's why they call us
Cowboys in Hong Kong

There's a girl that he sees
When he's feeling lonely
She'll laugh and say - Ok Joe
When they hold real tight
In the dead of the night
He'll pretend she's from Ohio
Oh - I'm a cowboy in Hong Kong

We're freedom fighters
And so we say
They like to tell us
That anyway
We still remain here
Though we don't belong
That's why the call us
Cowboys in Hong Kong

 

DIAMOND LIGHT - JEFF JONES
©Ken Greer

No Business Out On The Street
But The Church Bells Ring Out
They Don't Come Down Here
Much Anymore
Just The Fools In The Night
Jean, Jean, Genie's Cool
All Done Up In The Diamond Light
All The Boys And They Say
They Say West Street's Gonna Fight

In My Heart
You'll Always Be Here Anyway
Into My Arms
You'll Run To Me, Run To Me, Baby

Diamond Light
Don't Feel The Rain And Heartache
Of The Night
Diamond Light
Wanna Hear Your Laughter
Under The Moonlight
Diamond Light
Give Me All Your Love
All The Love You've Got
I'll Be Your King
I'll Be Your King Of Fools
I'll Be Your King Of Jewels

 

With The Reign Of The Cats
Now They Won't Take You Back
They've Run Out
Of Al Capones Here

They Change Their Money To Gold
It Doesn't Matter Anymore
What's Left After The Rain
No Better Revelation
Now I'm Stuck Here On The Road

Breathe It In
Inside You
You Don't Need A Savior
The Way Is Clear
Your Mind Is Open
Your Heart Says Go

(Chorus)

Walkin' By The River
It's All An Illusion
Walk By The River

 

 

DREAM BABY DREAM - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

Baby, she lays her head down and she closes
those tire eyes
now she can see it clearly, there's a hole in the sky
and she dreams, dreams herself, across the Great Divide.
She never did wanna come here,
didn't wanna cross that line
but with no where left to run to,
she's got nowhere left to hide
and now she's safe, safe and sound,
across the Great Divide.just give me that one chance, and we can dance all night
justtake the first step back to me
and dream baby dream
like a free bird with your wings untied
free like a child sleeping safe at night
and you call, my name and dream baby dream

well there's a hundred million stars each night
shoot across the milky way
and baby they're yours for the asking
they're all yours to take
a little bit of Mystery, a little bit of Faith,
and a little bit of Dream.
You don't know how long I've been waiting for
your heart to sing
you don't know how long I've been waiting for
these bells to ring
so ring 'em out, amd ring 'em loud, dream baby dream

Just gimme that one chance, and we can dance all night
just take that first step back to me and dream baby dream

you're a free bird with your wings untied
free like a child sleeping safe at night
you just call my name

call my name and let me carry you
carry you far, carry you wide
call my name and let me carry you
so safe inside these arms, we're gonna dream ourselves
across the Great Divide

dream baby dream, you're a free bird...

 

 

DYING OF LOVE - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

We grew up believing love was you and me
that love was forgiving, and that love was never
gonna let us down
I was part of you you were part of me
you're still the heart of me
you're the part I won't give up and I won't let down

Sometimes we say things that we never mean to say
and we never say the things we really mean;
Dying of love
we're dying od love. In this long dark silence,
we're dying of love
In this long dark silence...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I don't tell you that I love you more than he does,
and you don't tell me that you love me more than she does.
we keep the silence and we live these seperate lives,
afraid to look each other in the eyes
Dying of love
we're dying of love. In this long dark silence,
we're dying of love.
In this long dark silence...

HIGHWIRE - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

I see the moon rising up at the end of the day
and the lights from the valley below
are all fading away
and it's in to the future we go, uncharted and strange
it's the same old world, but everything's changed
and it all looks a little bit strange

from up on this highwire
up on this real romance, and this love is
like learning to dance up on a highwire

I'm trying hard to get my feet back on the ground
but from here where I'm standing it's a long,
long way down
and the world goes around and around
and around and around
and from way up here, it's a long way down
it's a long, long way down

 

 

from up on a highwire
way up on this real romance
trust is like takinga chance,
love is like learning to dance up on a highwire

well I said I love you and this is the real romance
no net below us, we're talking the chance
and this love is like learning to dance
on a highwire..

JUST THE WAY IT GOES - RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane & Ken Greer

Time to be what you
Want to be
And all the time in between
When loneliness calls
Do your thoughts turn back to me?
But you go on searching for that
Magic feeling and hope
That is soon comes through
But you believe what you
Want to believe
What your mind tells you is true
And you know it's
Not the way it is baby
Not the way it is
It's just the way it goes
And your heart is at the wheel baby
It knows when to steel
But never when to let go
And you know
It's just the way it goes
It gets harder
As the nights get longer
So you spend them with someone strange
For protection but you know
That it's never quite the same
It always happens this way

When your heart is at the wheel
And the harder you say stop
The harder she turns it on you
Not the way it is baby
Not the way it is
It's just the way it goes
Heart is at the wheel baby
It knows when to steal
But never when to let go
And you know
It's just the way it goes
Yes you know
It's just the way it goes
Don't you know
Get a little iron in the soul
Know when to let go
Don't you know
Get a little iron in the soul
Know when to let go
Yes it's not the way
Well it's just the way it goes
Not the way...
Well it's just the way it goes...
Don't give it up

LOVE UNDER FIRE - TOM COCHRANE & RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane & Ken Greer.

She got the heart
She got the heart of the working man
It's not hard to understand
She got the love
She got the love of the working man
She wears it high upon her sleeve
Deep in the heart of this working land
They say the streets are paved with gold
And ever man had his mission
Then after all the stories are told
The only thing I've got to hold
Our love is under fire tonight
But you know it's not to be forgotten

She's seen this place before
Where do you stop it?
Stop the leaking, this is ship to shore
Down to zero and then back for more
Do you miss me?
She doesn't even know your name
We can rise from this
Likes ashes to diamonds
Like a soldier from a kiss
Milk and honey, or the grapes of wrath

 

 

 

You don't walk a thousand miles
Just to get yourself turned back
Don't you fade on me now
Can't you see
We can take it is degrees
Nor rhyme nor reason or fame nor gold
Could make you change your mind, your heart, your soul

Our love is under fire tonight
You know it's not to be forgotten
Our love is on the wire tonight
But It'll never be broken (repeat)

You might look the other way
And then turn again someday when you'll remember
It'll never, never be broken

Our love is under fire tonight
You know it's not to be forgotten

 

 

LOVE AIN'T WORTH NOTHIN' - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

I was treading very softly on a thin sheet of ice
she was lying very nicely on a smooth bed of rice
negoiating company and tryna find a price
exactly what her love was worth
She said "fifty bucks'll buy you a friend for the day
or a strange conversation, about how it all got this way"
What ever it's gonna cost me,
I'm willing to pay, and she said
"Love ain't worth nothin' till you give it away"

I was standing on the shoreline by the lake of Galilee,
He comes walkin' across the water, and he's staring at me
I said "Ain't you the guy who said
'love gets you free?
How much is your love really worth?
Half a million bucks or a boat
on the bay for a soul turnin' green
or a conscience turning grey!"
"What I'm really after you can't really afford to pay" and He said "Love ain't worth nothin' till you give it away..."

 

 

 

Now there's hookers at the hotel door and
they're tryna get in;
selling bodies like apples the original sin.
And the line between good and evil is getting pretty thin
so how much is love really worth...
I don't care what you think I don't care what you say
just a little bit of love goes a long long way
turn that water to wine, change that night into day because Love ain't worth nothin' till you give it away...

 

MEMPHIS RAIN - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

Tennessee night and a long grey November
and who'd have believed that this story was true
and how could we know that the world would change
like the world has changed
ain't it strange what time can do...
we let time come, and let time go,
let the years get washed away
in the Memphis Rain...
there's a power in those good old songs
there'a a magic by the Graceland gates
and we've come, to wash our souls, in the Memphis Rain

I'm not really sure why I feel what I feel,
so safe and secure and tied to the past.
Mamma says you're a king, she says that kings live forever
but I wanna know - How long does forever last
Then I heard your voice - you were singin' again -
and all my fears got washed away
in the Memphis Rain

 

 

 

 

there's a power in those good old songs
there's a magic by the Graceland gates
washing us clean again...

I don't care if I'm in love with a legend
as long as the story goes that
you'll be the hero, you'll be the gold,
you'll be America's soul.

We can touch the very heart of America -
paradise lost, paradise gained.
Listen real close and you can hear him sing again in the
Memphis Rain...

There'a a power in those good old songs
there's a magic by the Graceland gates
washing us clean again-
And we've come to wash our souls
in the Memphis Rain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ONE MORE TIME (SOME OLD HABITS) - TOM COCHRANER & RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane & Ken Greer

Another place in another time
I'd know that face anywhere
Without a trace and without a sign
Anytime you could come to me
In the night
When you thought
No one should have known
With your hard luck little girl look
And the trouble that you'd own
You'd come like the wind
When the night got so cold
And leave with the light
Like you didn't even know you'd
Come at all

CHORUS

One more time
You could walk back in
One more time
It's the same south highway again
One less chance and then one less mistake
Some old habits are hard to break
Like you

 

 

 

If a heart could ever learn to say goodbye
And not let time take the best away
Still I Learn
Look down and I'd ask knowing why
Still this time is the destiny
I'd wait while you climb your golden stair
Hard luck then little girl
I know it's nowhere
Still you feel
They beat on you like a drum
If you get tired, torn and wasted
You know I'd never be one

CHORUS

So many times
When it gets hard to
See the truth
When you got to survive you
Tow the line and you compromise
Until you live a lie

Another place in another time
I'd know that face anywhere and I
Without a trace and without a sign
I still remember

CHORUS (twice)


ONE WAY OUT - RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane & Ken Greer & Goldberg.

Stand too close
I can feel her pull me in
All the time here waiting
Has been wasted in the wind
Adjusted to your way
And the corner of your stare
You can only stand so close to it
Before you see love isn't there
And there is
CHORUS:
Just one way out
Your heart can't see but your mind concedes
Just one way out
Just one way out
But you don't want to go alone
Just one way out

Here we go again
Should of had it down by now
But you never know why or when
Or where this could lead
So you open the door
Stand out proud
Brave the new frontier
I knew you could if you only tried
Walk away from these dark tears
And there is

CHORUS:
Just one way out
Your heart can't see but your mind concedes
Just one way out
Rugged lovers never learn how to bleed
Just one way out
But you don't want to go alone
Just one way out

Oh I'm missing you
The change will do you good
Oh I'm missing you
Though I never thought I would
Oh the distance here
Here in my head
Oh the darkness lies
In the words we said

Thinking I could love you
I can feel her pull me in
All the time here waiting
Has been wasted in the wind
So open the door
Stand out proud
Brave the new frontier
I knew you could if you only tried
Walk away from these dark tears
And there is

CHORUS:
Just one way out
Your heart can't see but your mind concedes
Just one way out
Rugged lovers never learn how to bleed
Just one way out
But you don't want to go alone
Just one way out
You don't want to go alone
But you don't want to go alone
No you don't want to go alone
You don't to go alone

PSALM 94 - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

We've got wars in the jungle
we've got wars in the dessert
we've got wars in the kitchens
and the world keeps on turning
oil on the water
fire on the sand
there's a couple of missiles in all of us
and the world keeps on turning
I don't know why and I don't know how
I don't know
God, Where are you now?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We aim our missiles at the mothers
dig graves for their children
we've got guns for every holiday
and the world is ours for the burning
we've got bigger philosophies
we've got liberated psychologies
everybody's everything
and the world os our for the burning

I don't know why and I don't know how
I don't knoe
God, Where are you now?

 

 

SHELTER VALLEY ROAD - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

Good St. Michael, light a fire for me
and we can sit and talk a while
about a life I did not choose.
And maybe you can tell me, why in a world full of colours
there's so many diferent shades of blue

There's a blue for the promises I've broken
There's a blue for all the hours I've spent alone
There's a blue for all these memories of growing up
on the Shelter Valley Road.

Throw the Christains to the lions
lets just see what their Gods can really do
and would I really understand this life any better
if I were standing in Jesus' shoes...
Maybe I just need another drink, or a cigarette,
'cause redemption is a word we do not use -
it sounds too much like we're all too little,
buried in lives of blue

Blue fo all the feelings left unspoken
Blue for all the hours I've spent alone
Blue like growing up
on Shelter Valley Road .

 

You must have a laugh at all us sinners come your way -
count us in to the distance two by two
you know the strangest thing about your Heaven,
is all these different shades of blue.

And I never talked to an angel before;
I'm not sure, exactly, what I'm supposed to do -
I always figured you'd be dressed up in white
instead of all these blues

There's a blue like the words I've left unspoken
Blue for all the shadows in my soul
It's a blue like growing up
on Shelter Valley Road.

 

 

SONGS ABOUT PEACE - HUNTER-GREER
© Hunter - Greer

No more smoke and candles, no more empty words
Where you try to teffify my soul
No more sacred silence, making love intense
How long you gonna leave me standin' in the cold
Will I still believe you love me
Because you always said you love me
But this time we're running out of time
My love's been long and patient
Silent strained and suffering
And now I'm lookin' for some kind of sign

Bring us love like a hero,
like everybody wants to be free

No more armies of angels, no more magic on the water
No more power to calm this crazy storm
i've got smoke and crack and whiskey, all my gods of
southern comforts.
But at least my gods are here to keep me warm
Well I still believe you love me
Everybody say's you love me
and we've all gotta' believe that something's true
But I'm almost out of hope
I'm almost out of southern comfort
And tonight I need a love even bigger than the hole in my soul and shoes

Send us love like a hero and we'll keep swinging these songs about peace...

Bring us love
And bring us a hero
Send your love
And bring us a hero
And we'll keep singing these about peace

 

 

TAKE ME AS I AM - HUNTER GREER
© Hunter - Greer

No river of crystal
watch the dirty water flow in to the heart of the wasteland
where even angels fear to go
Do not try to change me
do not try to understand
just take me, and take me as I am

Lay down next to me,
next to a heart so strained and twisted
and all that I resisted
was the chnace to really be safe upon this shoreline
and washed away in absolution
and all my revolutions have pushed me
further and further out to sea
just take me as I am
do not try and change me, do not try and understand
just take me
and take me as I am

 

 

 

 

 

For all my dirty water I ask you do not clean me
For all these chains around me, do not set me free
Let my rust and my pollution,
let my dirty water flow.
And you will still be you, and I will still be me.
just take me as I am.

 

THRU THE CURTAIN (SHE'S MY WORLD) - RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane & Ken Greer & Goldberg

I left my baby...overseas
But I'm going to get her back
Someday
I got my papers
I'll do some walking
It doesn't matter
How far I've got to go
I'll take those chances
I'll climb those fences
To get my baby from overseas

Cause she, she's my girl
Yea she, she's my world
She needs me

I've been out working
Every day now
To get my girlfriend
On a plane out
Of Romania, thru the curtain
Into the arms of her
Guy who's hurtin'

Cause she, she's my girl
Yea she, she's my world
She needs me
I've been working
Everyday now
To get my girlfriend
On a plane out
Of Romania, thru the curtain
Into the arms of her
Guy who's hurtin'

Cause she, she's my girl
Yea she, she's my world
She needs me

I got some friends who'll
Forge her passport
Make her look like a
UN Diplomat
Get her to peace talks
In Geneva
That's where they'll get her
And that's where I'll meet her


Cause she, she's my girl
Yea, she, she's my world
She needs me

Work, work, work, work,
To get my baby
Work
Thru the curtain
Work
To get my baby
Work
To get my baby
Work
Thru the curtain
Ride down that Orient Express

 

 

 

VACATION (IN MY MIND) - TOM COCHRANE & RED RIDER
© Tom Cochrane/Ken Greer/John Webster.

Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'll find
Taking a vacation in my mind
Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'm gonna find there
Stuck some clothes in a sack
I'm slipping out the back door

Sit by the range
See the splendors of the Bronze Age
I'll be wild eyed and waiting
They got me there and well placed

Where are you
Where you are I will be
I am on a vacation
Only in my mind
Vacation

Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'll find
I'm taking a vacation
I'm self-hypnotized

Blue man swings to the beat
Over there she's got a weapon
We're going to kick it in the sand
Some guys are selling visas
They're trying to sell tickets to the promised land

People going to get there
I see it in my dreams
Saw people dancing, saw people moving
In the hot summer steam

Where you are
Where you are I will be
I am on vacation
Only in my mind
I can see you from here
I am on vacation
Vacation

Taking a vacation
I don't know what I'll find
I'll be taking a vacation
Don't know what we'll find
We're going to discover America
Take a train to Mecca
We'll be lying on the beach there
The old wise fool and me

Where you are
Where you are I will be
I am on vacation only in my mind
I can see you from here
I am on vacation
Where you are I will be
I can see you from here

Taking a vacation
Don't know what I'll find
We're taking a vacation only in our minds
No traffic and noise here, well a word to the wise
There's splendors of the Bronze Age
That's about my favorite drive
