OH SHERRIE
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
You should've been gone
Knowing how I made you feel
And I should've been gone
After all your words of steel
Oh I must've been a dreamer
And I must've been someone else
And we should've been over

Oh Sherrie, our love
Holds on, holds on
Oh Sherrie, our love
Holds on, holds on

But I want to let go
You'll go on hurtin' me
You'd be better off alone
If I'm not who you thought I'd be

But you know that there's a fever
Oh that you'll never find nowhere else
Can't you feel it burnin' on and on

(chorus)

But I should've been gone
Long ago, far away
And you should've been gone
Now I know just why you stay

(chorus)

Oh Sherrie, our love
Holds on, holds on

WHEN YOU'RE IN LOVE (FOR THE FIRST TIME)
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
When you're in love, for the first time
There's nothing you can do
You lose your heart for the first time
It's happening to you
You keep your love in your pocket
Safely tucked away

When you're in love, for the first time
There's nothing you can do, listen
There she goes loving you
She's holding your hand,
you're thinking you're so strong
She's more than you can stand
 
When you're in love, for the first time
There's nothing you can do
You lose your heart, for the first time
It's happening to you...oh yeah
There she goes loving you
She's holding you hand,
You're thinking you're so strong
She's more than you can stand

When you're in love, for the first time
There's nothing you can do
You lose your heart, for the first time
It's happening to you...

SOMEWHERE THERE'S HOPE
(S. Perry, P. Taylor, L. Brewster, M. Lucas)
When you're runnin' baby
You can't let go
Life's on the line
When you're runnin', runnin', runnin'
From a cold, cold world
Voices they cry

Somewhere there's hope (somewhere there's hope)
Somebody please (somebody please)
Somewhere there's hope, waitin' there, waitin' there

Oo the wheels of fear
Turn truth into lies
Like a thief in the night
Hold on, through the smoke
And through the fire
No-one, can hide

Cause somewhere there's hope (somewhere there's hope)
Somebody please (somebody please)
Somewhere there's hope, waitin' there, waitin' there
Somewhere there's hope (somewhere there's hope)
Somebody please (somebody please)
Waitin' there, waitin' there

Somewhere there's hope (somewhere there's hope)
Somebody please (somebody please)
Somewhere there's hope, waitin' there, waitin' there

They cry, voices they cry
Somewhere there's hope, somebody please

YOU BETTER WAIT
(S. Perry, L. Brewster, P. Taylor, M. Lucas, J. Pierce, G. Hawkins)
She was only a child
Someone to hold on
Only a child
Someone to believe in
Only a child, someone to love
She was seventeen, beauty queen
I met her in a magazine
Heart of fire, Love's desire
Reachin' out, higher higher
Runaway, one more day
A broken hearted child at play
I pray for you, baby blue
In the name of love I reach for you
In the darkness comes the evil of the night
Think about it

(You better wait)
Stop your self before you fall
(You better wait)
Stop before you lose it all
Somewhere there's love
Oh, somewhere, somewhere

Precious girl, little pearl
Temptation is lonely world
Eyes deceive, they believe
In everything they wanna see, yeah
And the neon lights reflect your life
Only you know where you hide baby

(You better wait)
Stop your self before you fall
(You better wait)
Stop before you lose it all
Cause somewhere there's love

(You better wait)
Stop yourself before you start
(You better wait)
Don't look back, don't lose heart

Don't look, don't look
Don't look back baby
Don't
Don't look, don't look
Don't look back baby

WHAT WAS
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
What was I to do
You never should have called me up
What was I to do
Haven't we both had enough
I still think of you
Even though we're miles apart
What was I to do

The fire's still there
My heart is still scared
To fall again
It's a little too late because
We'll never change what was
 
There you go again
Girl, it's never gonna end
Someday we can't have
We must let go
I want so much to say
I love you more today
The hardest thing I ever had to say
Goodbye

What was I to do
You never should have called me up
What was I to do
Haven't we both had enough

GO AWAY
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
We meet again
Right in the middle
Of a love I knew before
Another girl, she looks a lot like you
I'm cruisin many
So are you
That's the way we both should do
I don't know, why we had this rendezvous

Go away, go away, I sing goodbye to you
When the song's gone, you'll be on
On to someone new

So here we are
Right in the middle
In the same place, stuck before
You'll have to find another place to play
Well I know I want to hold you
Right in the middle
Like I held you once before
But something's saying that's a big mistake

Why don't you
Go away, go away, I sing goodbye to you
When the song's gone, you'll be on
On to someone new

What you wanted
I gave it to you
In every way that you wanted to whoa oh
Don't make your move
If you ever cared for me

(chorus three times)

Go
Watching you, what you gonna do
Gonna do
Oh go
Watching you, what you gonna do
Gonna do

AGAINST THE WALL
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum & Michael Landau)
All of my life I've waited for someone like you
And darling, forever someday, that could be true
But who would believe me
From the middle of my heart,
From the middle of my lonely
Something's tearing you and me apart

Here I am (and here I am)
Oh...against the wall, once again, (and here I am)
Believe I want you, I'd like to, more than I show
But I belong to somebody else, baby, please
Walk out that door, yeah oh...
Before it's too late...listen
In the middle of your touch,
In the middle where your heat starts rising,
Oh, I want you so much
Here I am, (and here I am)
Oh...against the wall again, (and here I am)
Against the wall, once again (and here I am)
Yea...against the wall...again

SHE'S MINE
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
I've seen your kind before
I've seen you creepin around
Before you come round my door
Oh there's one thing you, gotta know

She's mine all mine
Don't show your face here no more
She's mine all mine
Don't hang around here no more

I heard her call out your name
Late last night in her sleep
That's why I came here to say
No, it won't be easy to steal her away

She's mine all mine
Don't show your face here no more
She's mine all mine
Don't hang around here no more...
Go!

You've got her under your spell
And she's believin your lies
You'd like her at your hotel
No, not as long as I'm alive

She's mine all mine
Don't show your face here no more
She's mine all mine
Don't hang around here no more, more, more, more

Oh she's mine
Don't show your face here no more
No no no no!
Don't hang around,
Don't hang
Don't hang around no more

MELODY
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
Melody
Even in my life's confusion
I still feel you near
In my dreams
Telling me your not illusion
You belong to me

Melody
I believe in you
Melody
In my heart
 
Melody
I still reach for you
Hold me Melody
Hold me Melody

Oh my love
I'm caught between your rhyme and reason
Why you're here with me
Hold me now
Tell me all the answers
That my heart will ever seek

Oh my love
I'm caught between your rhyme and reason
Why you're here with me
Hold me now
Tell me all the answers
That my heart will ever seek

FOOLISH HEART
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
I need a love that grows
I don't want it unless I know
With each passin hour
Someone, somehow
Will be there, ready to share

I need a love that's strong
I'm so tired of being alone
But will my lonely heart
Play the part
Of the fool again, before I begin

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore

Feelin that feelin again
Playin a game I can't win
Love's knockin on the door
Of my heart once more
Think I'll let her in
Before I begin

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before, you start falling
Foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart
Foolish, foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish heart, hear me calling
Stop before you start falling foolish heart, heed my warning
You've been wrong before
Don't be wrong anymore
Foolish heart

Oh foolish foolish heart
You've been wrong before

Foolish foolish heart
Foolish heart

FOR THE LOVE OF STRANGE MEDICINE
(Steve Perry)
Somewhere in the inside
All along the road
Lady luck has fallen
Now the truth unfolds
Rolling dice remember
What promises regret
Helps me to remember
Helps me to forget

Some are believers
Some don't know (some are lost)
They're lost and alone
Some are deceivers
Their souls been sold (for the love)
For the love of strange medicine

Far inside the dark room
Behind all the walls
Underneath the concrete
Heaven starts to fall
Walkin' on the sidewalks
Red lights turn to blue
Somewhere in the darkness
Standing there is you

Some are believers
Some don't know (some are lost)
They're lost and alone
Some are deceivers
Their souls been sold (for the love)
All for the love
Some are lost (Some are lost)
Lost and alone...
All for the love of strange medicine, we're lost

Some are believers,
Some don't know (some are lost)
We're lost and alone
Some are deceivers,
Their souls been sold (for the love)
All for the love
Some are lost (for the love)
Some are lost

SUMMER OF LUV
(S. Perry, R. Goodrum, B. Cuomo, M. Landau, R. Jackson, L. London)
I know the reason why love has a season
It's summertime
I was walking downtown and saw her, yeah
The prettiest thing, yes I saw here...oh
So I said you know, I'd love to talk to you a while
Oh...oo ya ya, she's so lovely, so lovely
I think she loves me
So I told her I think I love you,
Do you believe I do, do you now?
Do ya?
And maybe you know you could come around
After the show and we could go out
And have a cup of coffee or something
Huh, huh, ya think?
Oh...but ya ya ya, she's lovely, so lovely
Oh she loves me
I know the reason love has a season
It's summertime
Could I be dreaming, cause seeing is believing,
It's you and I and our summer of luv
Oh...oo ya ya, she's so lovely, so lovely
I know the reason love has a season
It's summertime

Could this be dreaming, cause seeing is believing,
It's you and I and our summer of luv
Oh...please get me to the church on time

STRUNG OUT
(Steve Perry, Craig Krampf)
One very happy warm summer night
I saw your face, what could I do?
So carefully I walked straight up to you

And in the shadow of a moonlit nite
I saw those eyes a shinin' through
Heart of gold, I love you misty blue

Oh it's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you

I feel like Bogart in a crazy movie
Bogie 'n me, we never beg,
But this time maybe I've got voices in my head

They're sayin' that he's never been good to you
And he's always hurt and let you down,
If what you need is good lovin', I'll be around

It's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you.
Strung out, strung out

Well, it's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you

It's hard to love somebody
Oh when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you
Strung out and hung up on you
Yes, strung out
Yes, strung out
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out

MISSING YOU (LIVE)
(S. Perry, T. Miner)
Oh I'm (missin' you)
The hurt on your heart
Through your eyes it shows
The past can't relive
What we both know
Still I remember
Things I never meant
Memories surround me
Won't let me forget
I was so wrong
The secret's not worth keeping
I had no faith
That you would still believe
No, now
My heart's in your keeping
Here I am

Missin' you
(Missing you)
Fear in the dark
Stares from my wall
Your eyes in your picture
Won't let me go
If I could remember
How you felt the pain
The king of pretenders
Alone in shame
I was so wrong
The secret's not worth keeping
I had no faith
That you would still believe
No, now
My heart's in your keeping
Here, I am, oh here I am

(Missin' you)
Missing you
Oh I'm (missing you)
You were there, now I'm here
You gave much more than I did
I gave what I had to give
If I could, you know I would
I'd make it up to you
Instead I'm (missin' you)
In the place you used to be
You were lying next to me
Oh I'm missin' you
Oh I'm missin' you
