Lyrics From The Boys Are Back


Puttin' The Dark Back Into The Night

The neon moon was lookin' over her shoulder
She was sippin' wine and tellin' lots of tales
When the bar flies are off the wall,
It's hard to stand up straight and tall
When you're lookin' for someone to go your bail

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

She gave her hand to a man who was only a lover
His cheatin' drove her jealously insane
Now the light at the end of the tunnel for her
Is just a memory of the way we were
And the look in her eye say's she don't have to explain

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

bridge
You'll never know just what you'll do
When a broken heart comes from out of the blue
She's out on the run, she's ready to blow
She's out of her mind, she's los in' control

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

chorus
She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

Rosie Knows

Am I the only one who's runnin' 'round in Rosie's mind tonight?
Was there a fight?
And could there be another behind that look in Rosie's eyes tonight
She's tryin' to hide?
Is my imagination runnin' wild?
Is someone runnin' after my honey child?

chorus
Rosie knows, but she won't say
What's goin' on inside her head that makes her look that way
No, no, the girl ain't talkin'
But by the way she's walkin'
Rosie knows, but she won't say

She says i got no reason for ever disbelievin' she'd be true
Boy you got no clue
I got to pull myself together before I pave a jealous rode to ride
It's gonna break my stride
My heart don't care what my mind says it heard
When she gives me that look without a word
chorus
Rosie knows, but she won't say
What's goin' on inside her head that makes her look that way
No, no, the girl ain't talkin'
But by the way she's walkin'
Rosie knows, but she won't say

chorus
Rosie knows, but she won't say
What's goin' on inside her head that makes her look that way
No, no, the girl ain't talkin'
But by the way she's walkin'
Rosie knows, but she won't say

Did It For Love

I had some words with her old man
When I asked him for her hand
'Cause eye to eye, you know, we never could see
Now we're off and we're on our own
As we head in to the danger zone
To find a little pink house for her and me

chorus
We did it for love
We did it for satisfaction
It was the rage of the age and the hour of the main attraction
We finally said, enough is enough
We played it by ear, it came from the heart
We did it for love

Now Mary Beth is doin' all she can
She had her child without her man
She never cared to hear what the town folk would say
They tried to talk her out of keepin' that boy
But in this world she's found no greater joy
Now she's a proud mama
Watchin' the little man play
chorus
She did it for love
She did it for satisfaction
It was the rage of the age and the hour of the main attraction
She finally said, enough is enough
She played it by ear, it came from the heart
She did it for love

My brother fought in the Vietnam war
He left his job and his family chores
I never understood when he said he couldn't let it be
Now it's been twenty years or so
He still talks about how regular joes were somethin' man
Defendin' the land of the free
chorus
They did it for love
they did it for satisfaction
It was the rage of the age and the hour of the main attraction
They finally said, enough is enough
They played it by ear, it came from the heart
They did it for love

chorus
We did it for love
We did it for satisfaction
It was the rage of the age and the hour of the main attraction
We finally said, enough is enough
We played it by ear, it came from the heart
We did it for love

The Race Is On

I feel tears wellin' up cold deep inside
like my heart's sprung a big break
and a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
that I may never shake

You might say that I was taking it hard
since you wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide in sarrow
when I may lay right down and bawl

Chorus

Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the backstreatch
Heartaches goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
and the winner looses all

One day I ventured in love
never once suspectin' what the final result would be
and how I lived in fear of waking up each morning
finding that you're gone from me
There's ache and pain in my heart
for today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
and I came out in second place

Chorus

Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the backstreatch
Heartaches goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
and the winner looses all

Way you talk

All I know is that I love you
Pretty little miss

Why am I acting like a kid in school hey hey
Trying to be noticed feeling like a fool
Sorry that I met you
Iím in love with you hey hey

Well if I had a nickel
For each and every time
You stopped to think about me
Iíd only have a dime

Still you got me hopiní
That some day youíll wake up
And see that you were meant
To be my little buttercup

I donít think Iím getting through to you
Why am I acting like a kid in school hey hey
Trying to be noticed feeling like a fool
Sorry that I met you
Iím in love with you hey hey

Why donít you come to daddy
Why donít you be a good girl
You know I love you madly
I want you mine till the end of time

I donít think Iím getting through to you

Locomotive

A wreckless heart was beatin' in that restless girl of
Mine and I was thinkin' that she'd be all right,
That train has been around and now it finally crossed her
Mind and the midnight run was rollin' right on time
It was rollin', rollin' right on time.

chorus
It was a lo-loco motive,
Even if it were a bull she would have rode it
To get out of here she didn't care.
It was a lo-loco motive,
It would have been a car, could have been a plane,
Just so happened to be the midnight train

Those mighty wheels will rumble as they pass the hobo
Jungle and I bet he's wishin' now that he had stayed,
I never should have let her, guess i should have known her
Better and I would if it wasn't for that train.
If it wasn't, wasn't for that train.

chorus
It was a lo-loco motive,
Even if it were a bull she would have rode it.
To get out of here she didn't care.
It was a lo-loco motive,
It would have been a car, could have been a plane,
Just so happened to be the midnight train.

bridge
She never really left me, she just left that one horse town
She hit the track and she won't be back to stand on common ground

chorus
It was a lo-loco motive
Even if it were a bull she would have rode it.
It was a lo-loco motive,
It would have been a car, could have been a plane,
Just so happened to be the midnight train.

Passin' Train

I hear you in the distance, and I see you in my mind
I wonder where you're goin to, when you leave me behind.
Wonder who waits for you you, dreaming just like I,
I'm talkin to that passin train in the night.

Tell me just how far that I should go,
tell me leavin ain't meanin, I'll always be gone.
Guess I'll never find tomorrow, till today's no longer mine,
I'm talkin to that passin train in the night.

The world lies south before you, yet you keep comin back,
tellin me no secrets, never losin track.
This place you're goin, do you have to go alone?
tell me passin train I gotta know.

Tell me just how far that I should go,
tell me leavin ain't meanin I'll always be gone.
Guess I'll never find tomorrow , till today's no longer mine
I'm talkin to that passin train in the night.

I see the wheels turnin
and I feel a fire inside me burning, am I learning?
Guess I'll never find tomorrow ,till today's no longer mine,
I'm talkin to that passin train in the night.

whoa ooohhhh, talkin to that passin train in the night.
