Lyrics

Rock and Roll Romance - 4:16
From the CD entitled: “The Wolf Inside”
copyright E David Strange ©2002

 

 ~~ verse 1 ~~

You know it’s getting late, its time to start the show.

The band is on the stage and we’re all set to go.

There is no time to waste, somebody hit those lights.

You know this is the place, we want to be tonight.

 

~~ chorus ~~

In every bar, in every town,

a different look, a different crowd

we come to play, they come to dance

It’s like a rock and roll romance

And here we go again, back on the road again,

 

~~ verse 2 ~~

Well we could hardly wait, it seems like it’s been years

We know it’s always great, whenever we are here

And you know when it’s time, for us to move along

Then we’ll just say goodbye and we’ll play you one last song

 

~~ chorus ~~

In every bar, in every town,

a different look, a different crowd

we come to play, they come to dance

It’s like a rock and roll romance

And here we go again, back on the road again,

 

~~ lead break ~~

 

and here we go again back on the road again

and here we go again back on the road again

and here we go again back on the road again

and here we go again back on the road again

and here we go again, here we go again

here we go again, and here we go again

Mary Jane - 4:57
From the CD entitled: “The Wolf Inside”
copyright E David Strange ©2002

  

~~ verse 1 ~~

Mary Jane, we’ve been friends for so long some things never change.

I look at you, I look into your eyes and I can feel the pain.

You and I, I never realized how much you mean to me.

What can I do? ‘Cause you belong to someone else that’s plain to see.

  

~~ chorus ~~

May all your troubles fade away.

I hope you'll find true love again someday.

Whatever you may do, one thing that is true.

Mary Jane, I’m still in love with you.

 

~~ verse 2 ~~ 

Mary Jane, I’ve been away much too long, but now I’m back again.

I look at you, and you still make me feel the way I did back then.

You and I, well I know you’re not happy that’s not hard to see.

What can I do?  I wish there was a way that you could be with me.

  

~~ chorus ~~ 

May all your troubles fade away,

I hope you'll find true love again someday.

Whatever you may do, one thing that is true,

Mary Jane, I’m still in love with you.

 

~~ lead break ~~

  

~~ chorus ~~  

May all your troubles fade away.

I hope you'll find true love again someday.

Whatever you may do, one thing that is true

Mary Jane, I’m still in love with you.

Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Mary Jane, Mary Jane

Lyrics

From the CD entitled: “The Wolf Inside”
copyright E David Strange ©2002

 

 ~~ verse 1 ~~

Baby let me take you to a place down by the river,

let me take you to this little place I know.

We can lie there in the sunshine we can lie there in the moonlight,

if we want to we can lie there all night long.

 

~~ chorus ~~

Baby, baby, baby, let me touch you let me hold you,

let me feel your naked body next to mine.

baby, baby, baby, let me kiss you and caress you,

and I’ll tell you that I love you one more time.

 

~~ verse 2 ~~

Baby let me take you to a place down by the ocean,

let me take you to this little place I know.

We can lie there in the sunshine, we can lie there in the moonlight,

if we want to, we can make love all night long.

 

~~ chorus ~~

Baby, baby, baby, let me touch you let me hold you,

let me feel your naked body next to mine.

Baby, baby, baby, let me kiss you and caress you

let me tell you that I love you one more time

 

~~ break ~~

 

baby let me take you, baby let me take you

baby let me take you, baby let me take you

 

~~ phone conversation ~~

 

aahhhh baby let me take you, baby let me take you,

come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

baby let me take you, baby let me take you.

Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

Baby let me take you.

This one almost didn't get chosen for the album, but encouraged by their good friend Wes Burgess, the band decided to record it.  In the end, the band liked it so much they chose to use this song for their video.

 

Lyrics

From the CD entitled: “The Wolf Inside”
copyright E David Strange ©2002

 

 ~~ verse 1 ~~

 Just another night, nothing seems right, I can’t seem to be creative.

Losin’ my mind with words I’m tryin’ to find and it’s drivin’ me half crazy.

I’ll go out for a walk and maybe I can talk, to someone to get it together.

Givin’ it my best and maybe just a rest, is all I need to make it better.

 

 ~~ chorus~~

Well it’s a critical situation, there’s nothing left for me to do.

I need your visual stimulation, oh baby I need you.

You know I’ve tried all the other solutions.

There’s nothing left for me to do.

I need your visual stimulation, baby I need you.

 

 ~~ verse 2~~

Called you on the phone nobody was home, the clock just keeps on ticking.

Working on a deadline racking my brain, to find the words I’m missin'.

Staring at the floor I can’t take any more it used to be so easy.

Just another song it shouldn’t take so long, but nothing seems to please me.

 

 ~~ chorus ~~

Well it’s a critical situation, there’s nothing left for me to do.

I need your visual stimulation, oh baby I need you.

You know I’ve tried all the other solutions.

There’s nothing left for me to do

I need your visual stimulation, baby I need you

 

 ~~ break~~

 

  

~~ chorus ~~

Well it’s a critical situation, there’s nothing left for me to do.

I need your visual stimulation, oh baby I need you.

You know I’ve tried all the other solutions,

There’s nothing left for me to do

I need your visual stimulation, baby I need you

 mm baby I need you now mm baby I need you,

mm baby I need you now, oh baby I need you.
