Lyrics

Born To Love This Way

Written By: Linda McAdams / Brad Rodgers

PONIES WERE BORN TO RUN ACROSS THE OPEN PLAINS OF TEXAS
WITH NO REINS TO HOLD THEM BACK, NO MAN TO SLOW THEM DOWN
EAGLES WERE BORN TO FLY INTO THE DEEPEST BLUES OF HEAVEN
ASCENDING AND DESCENDING WITH THE FREEDOM OF THE WIND
AND I WAS BORN TO LOVE THIS WAY

DREAMS ARE BORN TO FEED THE FIRE ON ONES OWN INTUITION
AND TO KEEP THE HARD LINES BROKEN, SO NEW ONES MAY BE DRAWN
STARS WERE BORN TO KEEP THOSE DREAMS ALIVE AND EVER BURNING
TILL ONE DAY THEY COME TRUE, THE WAY YOU CAME TO ME
AND I WAS BORN TO LOVE THIS WAY

THERE WERE TIMES WHEN I WOULD WONDER WHAT LOVE’S ALL ABOUT
BUT THE FIRST TIME THAT I HELD YOU IN MY ARMS I HAD NO DOUBT

THAT PONIES WERE BORN TO RUN, EAGLES WERE BORN TO FLY
STARS WERE JUST FOR DREAMS UNTIL I SAW THEM IN YOUR EYES
AND I WAS BORN TO LOVE
YES I WAS BORN TO LOVE
OH I WAS BORN TO LOVE THIS WAY.

Burning Up The Bandstand

Written By: Linda McAdams

I WAS HEADED DOWN THE BOULEVARD LATE YESTERDAY
WHEN I HEARD THAT COUNTRY RHYTHM FROM A MILE OR SO AWAY
THE NEON MARKED THE SPOT
THIS IS WHAT I SAW
THE BAND STARTED COOKIN’ AS I WALKED IN THE DOOR
THEY WERE TURNIN’ UP THE HEAT AND THE CROWD CALLED OUT FOR MORE.

THEY WERE PLAYING ALL THE OLD ONES, HOT LICKS FLYING BY
THE ROOM BEGAN TO SIMMER, SMOKE BEGAN TO RISE
EVERYBODY STARTED MOVING
GETTING CAUGHT UP IN THE BEAT
A CROWD WAS ON THE DANCE FLOOR, I HEARD SOMEBODY SHOUT
THE BAND WAS RAGING OUT OF CONTROL, AND YOU CAN’T PUT A FIRE LIKE THAT OUT.

THEY WERE BURNING UP THE BANDSTAND
A SIX ALARM FIRE WAS ON THE WAY
THEY WERE BURNING UP THE BANDSTAND
THEY JUST CAME TO PLAY

PEOPLE RUN FOR COVER, THE FIRE STARTS TO GROW
SOMEONE CALL THE FIRE STATION TO BRING SOME H2O
BUT THEY TURNED IT UP LOUD
ADDING FUEL TO THE FIRE
I THINK ITS TOO LATE, ASHES ON THE GROUND
BEFORE THE NIGHT WAS OVER, THEY HAD BURNED THAT BAR ROOM DOWN

Dangerous Man

Written By: Linda McAdams / Brad Rodgers

HE’S GOT STEEL BLUE EYES THAT’LL CUT YOU DOWN
HE’S ON THE MOST WANTED LIST OF EVERY GIRL IN TOWN
WHEN HE WALKS IN THE ROOM IT GETS A LITTLE BIT COOLER
WATCH YOUR STEP HE’S A PROFESSIONAL DUELER

HE’S A DANGEROUS MAN
HE’S A DANGEROUS MAN
HE’S A HIT AND RUN, JUST FOR FUN, DOWNRIGHT DANGEROUS MAN

HE’S THE MASTER OF DISGUISE WHO CAN CHANGE HIS STYLE
FROM A DEBONAIR LOOK TO A LITTLE BOYS SMILE
HE’S GOT ALL THE RIGHT PIECES IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES
AND TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY AT 10 PACES

CHORUS

HE MAKES HIS OWN RULES
NOTHING EVER SHAKES HIM
HE’LL NEVER SURRENDER
AND LOVE WILL NEVER TAKE HIM ALIVE
LOVE WILL NEVER TAKE HIM ALIVE
