GIRL CAN'T HELP IT
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
If he could hold her, so close in his arms...again
If she could show him
The letter her heart forgot to send...why
They're livin' dreams on their own
Ooh they'll never stop running

The girl can't help it, she needs more
He hasn't found what he's lookin' for
They're still standing in the rain
He can't help it, and she's just that way

And when he calls her
She tells him that she still cares
Under the moonlight,
He wonders why she can't be there...why
Why do they go on alone
When they're missin' each other

The girl can't help it, she needs more
He hasn't found what he's lookin' for
They're still standing in the rain
He can't help it, and she's just that way

The girl can't help it, she needs more
He hasn't found what he's lookin' for
They're still standing in the rain
He can't help it, and she's just that way

There's a fire
Ooh there's a fire in his eyes for you
Don't you know she still cries
Ooh do you know she still cries for you
Fire
Ooh there's a fire in his eyes for you
For you she cries
Ooh do you know she still cries for you
Fire
Ooh there's a fire in his eyes for you
Ooh nothing stands between love and you

POSITIVE TOUCH
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
Emergency breakthrough
There's no way to reach you
There's somebody else I'll turn to

She (she's) has got the positive touch (touch)
She's bringing love back to me, yeah, back to me. I said--
She, (she's) to me means so much (much)
She's saving it all for me, yeah

I'm missin' your touch, you're wondering where I've been
No, it's never enough, you're pushing me to the end
You won't break this heart, no...
She's not like you are, no...
Girl, I'm lettin' your love, go...

She, (she's) has got the positive touch (touch)
She's bringing love back to me, yeah, I said back to me
I said she (she) to me means so much
She's saving it all for me

You won't break this heart, no...
She's not like you are, no...
Girl, I'm lettin' your love, go...

Baby...oh bye-bye baby
Girl, now that you're here
In my arms, love is here to stay
Eyes of blue, good-bye yesterday
Love is here to stay
Eyes of blue, good-bye yesterday
 
SUZANNE
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
I see your face at the movies
I hear your voice on the radio
You're makin' love on the silver screen
I want you more than you'll ever know
Temptation...Infatuation...
Suzanne, don't walk away
On no Suzanne, oh girl I'm callin' you
Suzanne, so far away
Remember Suzanne, those summer nights with me

I wonder if you're really happy
And if you saw me, would you know my name
I'm the one you used to hold on to
You're the one who used to wear my ring
Remember...our last September...

Oh Suzanne, don't walk away
On no Suzanne, oh girl I'm callin' you
Suzanne, so far away
Remember Suzanne, those summer nights with me

Remember...our last September...
Suzanne, so far away
Remember Suzanne, those summer nights with me

Suzanne, don't walk away, I love you Suzanne
I'm still callin' you
Suzanne...no no no no no remember
Those summer nights with me, those summer nights

BE GOOD TO YOURSELF
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
Runnin' out of self-control
Gettin' close to an overload
Up against a no win situation
Shoulder to shoulder, push and shove
I'm hangin' up my boxin' gloves
I'm ready for a long vacation

Be good to yourself when, nobody else will
Oh be good to yourself
You're walkin' a highwire, caught in a crossfire
Oh be good to yourself

When you can't give no more
They want it all but you gotta say no
I'm turnin' off the noise that makes me crazy
Lookin' back with no regrets
To forgive is to forget
I want a little piece of mind to turn to

Be good to yourself when, nobody else will
Oh be good to yourself
You're walkin' a highwire, caught in a crossfire
Oh be good to yourself
Be good to yourself when, nobody else will

ONCE YOU LOVE SOMEBODY
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
Two young hearts lost in love they vow to stay,
Running wild they believe they've found a way
Filled with hope
She's the dream, she understands you
Now this time he'll hold on, she'll never leave him
They'll never let go 'cause...

Once you love somebody, (once you love)
There's no turning back (turning back)
It can burn forever, it can haunt you, haunt you in the night

How can lovers just turn and walk away
Loneliness is an edge that cuts both ways
So easy to fall
So hard to get over

Once you love somebody, (once you love)
There's no turning back (turning back)
It can burn forever, it can haunt you, haunt you in the night

So easy to fall, so hard to get over
Once you love somebody, (once you love)
There's no turning back (turning back)
It can burn forever, it can haunt you, haunt you in the night

(Once you love somebody), once you love
(they can break your heart), no no no
It can burn forever, letting go, that's the hardest part

HAPPY TO GIVE
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
I was born a believer, played the fool
Lonely dreamer, left to choose
I don't know where the love is, there's a promise undone
Someone's cry'in, in a room all alone
Shadows fall, after the hurt is gone
Through it all, we love and we lose

Where is the one, someone who's happy (happy to give)
Happy to be with you, it's here you belong, with someone
Who's happy (happy to give) happy to give you love

A song for the singer, one book of dreams
Take this heartache, away from me
A page in a story, romance untold
Sharing secrets, we call, our own
Shadows fall, after the hurt is gone
Through it all, we love and we lose

Where is the one, someone who's happy (happy to give)
Happy to be with you, it's where you belong, with someone
Who's happy (happy to give) happy to give you love

Happy, happy, oh happy
(Happy to give), oo happy to give
Oh somebody's happy to give you love,
Your love, your love oh yeah

RAISED ON RADIO
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
Stagger Lee, can you Do The Locomotion
Lucille I hear you knocking but you can't come in
Rockin' Robin, C.C Rider,
A Rama Lama Ding Dong
Let the Good Times Roll
My Sweet Sixteen
I'm Maybelline

The Great Pretender
Returned To Sender
I wonder Why Fools Fall in Love
Yeah, Louie, Louie, loves drive-in movies.
Johnny Angel Rocks Around the Clock
Mister D.J. make a dedication
Cause I'm All Shook Up over Peggy Sue
I'm Mister Blue,

The hits keep rockin' station to station
In the Midnight Hour in the Sea of Love
My Turtle Dove.
When I Found my Thrill, On Blue Berry Hill,
We wrote Love Letters in the Sand.

She Loved Me Tender.
Jungle Lion Sleeps Tonight
Radio, Radio

We're all raised on radio, radio
I love my radio
Radio, Radio,

I'LL BE ALRIGHT WITHOUT YOU
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
I've been thinking 'bout the times
You walked out on me
There were moments I'd believe, you were there
Do I miss you, or am I lying to my self again
I do these things...
(It's all because of you)
I keep holding on, but I'll try
(try not to think of you)
Love don't leave me lonely

I'll be alright without you
There'll be someone else...I keep tellin' myself
I'll be alright without you
Oh...love's an empty face, I can't replace
(you don't need it)
People wonderin' why we broke apart
The great pretender here I go again
These things I do
(It's all because of you)
I'll keep holdin' but I'll try
(try not to think of you)
All I wanted was to hold you

I'll be alright without you
There'll be someone else, I keep tellin' myself
I'll be alright without you
Love's an empty face...Oh I've got to replace

I'll be alright without you
There'll be someone else, I keep tellin; myself
I'll be alright without you
Oh...love's an empty place, I can still see your face
I'll be alright

IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
We were so close yet so far away
I'd reach out, you'd be gone
Moments that still talk my breath away
There's so much more to life than loving you
You don't need me, no...

I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you

Time washes over, memories
I can't look back no more
Change has forsaken, our promises
There's someone else for you to hold again
So please stop your crying

I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you

Remember, remember, girl I remember
I...can't wait all my life, on a street of broken dreams
It could have been you my love (where are you now)
Oh I...still wonder if you remember the night
It could have been you (where are you now)
Should have been you my love (where are you now)
It could have been you my love, (where are you now)
remember...remember...remember

THE EYES OF A WOMAN
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
In the eyes of a woman, in a world of desire,
From the moment she looked my way. I was so hypnotized
Should I show how I feel, she's the magnet, I'm steel
The eyes of a woman, there's nowhere to run
The eyes of a woman

In the arms of an angel, in a dangerous disguise
Love's a blue fascination
It's a mystery that burns, takes a lifetime to learn
The eyes of a woman, there's nowhere to run
The eyes of a woman, my fears come undone
In the eyes of a woman, there's nowhere to run
The eyes of a woman, my fears come undone

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run

WHY CAN'T THIS NIGHT GO ON FOREVER
(Steve Perry, Jonathan Cain)
Lost in twilight, the memories
Precious moments, you and me
We've been old friends, all through the years
Picture postcards, sharing tears

What's in our hearts, there's never time, to say
Need you tonight, lover don't fade away
I've seen your city lights
As I walk away
Why can't this night...go on forever

Without love, we won't survive
Run together, we rule the night
Tell me secrets, oh that make you cry
Where's the laughter, we gotta try

What's in our hearts, there's never time to say
Need you tonight, lover don't fade away
Like a photograph
That time won't erase
Why can't this night...go on forever
Go on forever and ever...ever and ever
