ANY WAY YOU WANT IT
(Steve Perry, Neal Schon)
             
ANY WAY YOU WANT IT
That's the way you need it
Any way you want it

She loves to laugh
She loves to sing
She does everything
She loves to move
She loves to groove
She loves the lovin' things

Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh, baby, hold tight

Oh, she said,
Any way you want it
That's the way you need it
Any way you want it
She said, Any way you want it
That's the way you need it
Any way you want it

I was alone
I never knew
What good love could do
Ooh, then we touched
Then we sang
About the lovin' things

Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh baby, hold tight

Oh, she said,
Any way you want it
That's the way you need it
Any way you want it
She said, Any way you want it
That's the way you need it
Any way you want it

WALKS LIKE A LADY
(Steve Perry)
Walks like a lady,
with her tender charms.
She moves like a lady
When I'm in her arms.
She loves like a lady,
lovin' all night long.
She cries like a baby
When she's done something wrong.

I told you once, yes, I told you twice
but you never listen to my advice
I catch you walkin' with that boy again
I'm gonna set you free.
Oh, I'm gonna set you free.

Loves like a lady,
So soft and slow.
She feels like a lady,
Ooo, I can't let go.
She smiles like a lady,
Smilin' all night long,
But cries lake a baby
When she's done something wrong.

(chorus)

Walks like a lady
Oh, but she cries like a little girl
Walks like a lady
Yes, but she cries like a little girl
Walks like a lady,
Walks like a lady
Cries like a little girl

SOMEDAY SOON
(Steve Perry, Gregg Rolie, Neal Schon)
Someday soon, someday soon.
Seasons were made for the change.
You will be there.
Just like the night to the day without a care.
The dark goes before the dawn.
Open up your eyes.

Someday soon
Ooo, there'll be a better day.
And someday soon,
Yes, it's not too far away.

Someday soon
Oo yeah, with open skies,
And someday soon.
All we can do is try.

The cloudiest day comes around,
You will be there.
All of the feelin's you've found, without a care.
So my friends, you take a look.
Don't you look too far.

Someday soon
Oo yeah, with open skies,
And someday soon.
All we can do is try.

Someday, someday, someday soon,
someday, someday soon
Someday, someday soon
Someday soon
Someday soon
Someday soon

PRECIOUS TIME
(Steve Perry, Neal Schon)
I was captured by the light of a wayward smile
Whe she said to me,
"Move slowly son and touch the sky,
Very soon you'll see
Oo, how precious time placed it's hand on me;
Oo, how precious time, how it rescued me."

See the line of sight in side your mind,
but from where I don't know.
And the tales that are left behind,
Left for all to grow.
Oo, precious time placed it's hand on me;
Oo, precious time, how it recued me."
Oo, how it rescued me, how it rescued me.

Oh, there's a place in time not far from here,
A place we all could see;
So if you're lookin' for a better day,
Touch the sky and see.
Oh, precious time placed it's hand on me;
Oh, precious time, how it rescued me.

Be the soldiers for your lives my friends,
Fight for all to see.
It's the only way to catch the sun;
It's the only way you'll see,
Oh how precious time placed it's hand on me,
Yeah precious time
How it rescued me, baby, baby it rescued me.

Oh, there's a place in time not far from here,
A place we all could see;
So if you're lookin' for a better day,
Touch the sky and see.
Oh, precious time placed it's hand on me;
Oh, precious time, how it rescued me.

WHERE WERE YOU
(Steve Perry, Neal Schon)
Where were you
When I wanted you to love me through the night?
Where were you
When I wanted you to love and hold me tight?
Where were you, little darlin'
When you said to pick you up after school?
I know where, little lady,
'Cause my mama didn't raise no fool.

Yeah.
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?

I know where, baby,
you been runnin' 'round loose on the side.
I know where, little lady,
you been runnin' 'round with something to hide.
I don't mind, darlin', if you're feelin' fancy and free.
I don't mind, little baby,
Cause your sister's lookin' real good to me.

Hey,
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?

I didn't know what the hell was goin' on,
Someday you're gonna break.
So don't try to get yourself straight,
You're just a little too late.

Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?

Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?

I'M CRYIN'
(Steve Perry, Gregg Rolie)
Oo, I'm cryin', tears are fallin' down.
I'm cryin' the lonely tears of clowns.
I'm tryin' to wear a smilin' face.
It was just yesterday things then they felt okay.
Now that has all gone away.

Oo, I'm cryin' the only tears of clowns.
I'm tryin' tryin' and rain's fallin' down.
I'm cryin' and that's a lonely place.
If I could hide the pain, if I could stop the rain,
Then all my cryin' could be gone.

Oo, rain, who will stop the rain, the rain?
Oo, I'm cryin', the tears are fallin' down.
I'm tryin', the rain still beats the ground.
I'm cryin' those lonely tears of clowns.

Lonely, lonely tears,
lonely, lonely tears

LINE OF FIRE
(Steve Perry, Neal Schon)
It was a hot and steamy night,
Then Frankie pulled his gun in sight.
He said, "Now Susie, don't you lie.
Did Stevie, did he catch you with another guy?"
Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
Standing in the line of fire it's comin' to ya,
It's goin' through ya.

He told her that he had been true,
And that he'd never made her blue, no.
So don't go sayin' Stevie's a liar,
Girl, I've got my finger on a hair-trigger wire.

Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
Standing in the line of fire it's comin' to ya,
It's goin' through ya.
Bye, bye, bye, Susie.
So long girl.

Those gunshots echoed through the town.
Oh Frankie threw his shotgun down.
That roof had moonlight shinin' through.
She said she'd never, never, never, make him blue, yea.

Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
Standing in the line of fire it's comin' to ya,
Standing in the line of fire it's gonna shoot ya.
It's goin' through ya.
Bye, bye, bye, Susie.
So long.

GOOD MORNING GIRL
(Steve Perry, Matthew Schon)
Good morning girl, how you been
Good morning girl, is love within
I see your face everywhere
I see your smile your golden hair
I see your eyes shinin' through
Those gentle eyes silver blue
Good morning girl, how you been
Good morning girl, is love within
Good morning girl, it's been long
Good morning girl, to you this song
I sing it girl from the heart
I'll sing it girl from the start
Good morning girl, how you been
Good morning girl is love within

STAY AWHILE
(Steve Perry, Neal Schon)
I'd do anything to hold you.
I'd go anywhere to touch you.
I'd do anything you want me to,
If you'll just stay with me awhile.

I'd sing any song your heart desires.
I would sing out loud of love's sweet fires.
Oo, I'd do all this and so much more.
If you'll just stay with me awhile.

Reach out your hand,
Oh, to me.
Oh, I'm fallin'
One minute more,
I'm fallin'
I'm fallin'
Oh, oh, fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Won't you just stay with me awhile?

HOMEMADE LOVE
(Steve Perry, Mathew Schon, Steve Smith)
Oh, oo.
Oo, baby.
I love cookin' with honey.
I love to make you feel funny.
I love the way you do.
I want, I want it with you, yeah.
Homemade love, Jelly roll love.
Homemade love.

I need a jelly roll sweetie.
Now, spread it oh spread it on me, babe.
Feels so good, on the top.
Spread it around, baby, till I drop ya'.
Homemade love, hot jelly roll love.
Homemade love.

Oh, baby, oh baby,

Homemade love, oh, baby.

So love it.
