  1. Look At Yourself (Hensley)

    I see you running, don't know what you're running from
    Nobody's coming, what'd you do that was so wrong?
    Look back and turn back, look at yourself
    Don't be afraid just look at yourself.

    If you need assistance or if all you need is love
    There's no point in hiding, tell me what you're frightened of
    You've got a friend, just look at yourself
    Don't be afraid, just look at yourself.

    Look back and turn back, look at yourself
    Don't be afraid just look at yourself.

  2. I Wanna Be Free (Hensley)

    As I wake up every day with no new songs to play
    Feeling like I ought to pack my bag and run
    My imagination flies to some other sunny skies
    Where I felt so good and everything was done
    And my time was my own, and my heart felt so free. Come On!

    I don't mind a little rain, but it doesn't seem the same
    When the clouds shut out your beauty from my eyes
    There's a storm inside my head and I know it doesn't lead
    To a clearer a day when nobody will cry
    I can't stand here alone, and I need to be free... Free!

    So bring fire and bring steel for you know the way I feel
    Bring a silver horse to carry me away
    I'm no stranger, I'm a friend and my pain will never end,
    'Til the world will let us live our lives as one
    And our time is our own, and our hearts can be free.

    I wanna be free, I wanna be free, I wanna be free, I wanna be free
    I wanna be free, I wanna be free, I wanna be free, I wanna be free

  3. July Morning (Hensley/Byron)

    There I was on a July morning
    Looking for love,
    With the strength of a new day dawning
    And the beautiful sun
    At the sound of the first bird singing
    I was leaving for home
    With the storm and the night behind me
    And a road of my own
    With the day came the resolution
    I'll be looking for you
    La la la la...

    I was looking for love in the strangest places
    There wasn't a stone that I left unturned
    I must have tried more than a thousand faces
    But not one was aware of the fire that burned

    In my heart, In my mind, In my soul
    La la la la...

    In my heart, In my mind, In my soul
    La la la la... La la la la...

    There I was on a July morning
    Looking for love,
    With the strength of a new day dawning
    And the beautiful sun
    At the sound of the first bird singing
    I was leaving for home
    With the storm and the night behind me
    And a road of my own
    With the day came the resolution
    I'll be looking for you
    La la la la...

  4. Tears In My Eyes (Hensley)

    I thought no one could keep us from sharing the rest of our lives
    Like a fool I believed you were true and had no disguise
    There's a clear blue sky outside
    And the summer is fine
    But with tears in my eyes I'm
    No longer pretending you're mine

    It's the same weary story of a woman abusing her man
    So I have to forget your though I'm not even sure if I can
    There's a clear blue sky outside
    And the summer is fine
    But with tears in my eyes I'm
    No longer pretending you're mine

    It's the same ugly story of a woman abusing her man
    So I have to forget your though I'm not even sure if I can
    There's a clear blue sky outside
    And the summer is fine
    But with tears in my eyes I'm
    No longer pretending you're mine

  5. Shadows Of Grief (Hensley/Byron)

    You're looking at me like I must be mad
    But I've been through all this before
    You'll kick and kick until I'm down
    So don't think you're coming past my door oh no!
    You think that love is such a pain
    So the more it hurts the more you laugh
    You take it and shake it up and down
    'Til you think you've had enough

    But you won't get enough of my love

    If you want to carry on in the same old way
    Treating everyone like a piece of dirt
    Take it and break it and throw it away
    There won't be anyone left to hurt oh no!

    North, South, East and West
    Wherever you go you'll find the same
    And the only way you'll ever learn
    Is to realize that you're to blame

  6. What Should Be Done (Hensley)

    So you think you found a way of living
    That prevents you losing any sleep
    Well my friend take this that I am giving
    It's your piece of mind you oughta keep

    You'll run into trouble, for sure
    By living behind a locked door

    Will you run the risk of being taunted
    By doing what you want to do
    Or do you prefer to have your whole life haunted
    By the ones who choose to care for you?

    Beware of their motives, my friend
    Take care you're still there at the end

    Watch out for winter, it'll bite you with cold
    Black spirits trying hard to bribe you with gold

    Would you steal a nickel from a blind man?
    Well right now I do believe you would
    It's not the thought of you doing it that hurts me
    It's the mind behind it that's no good

    If this is your way I don't want to know
    There's only so far I can go

    I won't go no further not for you or anyone
    I have my own ideas of what should be done
    What should be done
    What should be done
    What should be done

  7. Love Machine (Hensley/Byron/Box)

    Lovely little lady
    You've got me on the run
    You're a love machine and you say that I'm your gun
    But I don't care 'cause I've got to know

    You said you were a loser
    The kind that came off worse
    So I had to try hard to satisfy your thirst
    But I don't care 'cause I've got to know

    The only time she's happy
    Is when the bullets fly
    And she'll make you feel you're better than any other guy
    But I don't care 'cause I've got to know

    Lovely little lady
    You've got me on the run - yeah
    You're a love machine and you say that I'm your gun
    But I don't care 'cause I've got to know

  8. What's Within My Heart (Hensley)

    Will I never see again
    The smiling faces of my friends
    Could it be they've gone completely
    And though thoughts will linger
    Sweetly in my heart

    May I hear once more
    The bird calls my name
    May I be permitted just one friend
    To share my game

    The one who doesn't give a damn
    For what I seem to be
    And really cares for what I am and
    What's within my heart

    I believe the sun will shine
    And I know that given time
    The leaves will blow tumble and
    Cry upon the autumn stone below

    And my heart grows tired each day
    As the sun grow cold
    Weary uninspired each day
    Til the story is told

    You gave your love to one
    Who only wants what you seem to be
    And doesn't really care for you or
    What's within your heart

    On my grave lay one black rose
    Do this for me but don't suppose
    Because I'm gone, my soul is dead
    For I'll be here in spirit
    And our love once more

    There must be a heart somewhere
    In need of the love I have
    That will reach out in sincerety and
    Take my life in hand

    Then I'll know it's not some one
    Who wants just what I seem to be
    The one who cares for what I am and
    What's within my heart

    What's within my heart ...

  9. Why (Box/Byron/Hensley/Newton)

    Thought of no tomorrow
    The pain, tears and sorrow
    And you never told me why
    The way you cheated
    And mistreated
    You could never tell me why

    But I'm gonna find out
    I'm gonna find out
    What's been messing up your mind
    Messing up your mind

    Is there any true reason
    Or anything I can explain
    Can't we talk about it baby
    Get together again
    You see I have the feeling
    That this isn't the end
    And I feel it knowing
    On you I depend

    I'm gonna find out
    Yeah, I'm gonna find out
    What has been messing up your mind

    Perhaps it's best for us
    To stay together
    And try to live our lives as one
    And maybe we will find
    We're still together
    To watch the setting of the sun
