HOW OLD ARE YOU (1983)

Juliet / How old are you / And out of love / Kathy's gone / Don't stop the night / Another lonely night in New York / Danger / I can't love you / Hearts on fire / I believe in miracles.


JULIET

I steal the night away,
Driving my life away, dancing.
I was a romeo,
I knew the art of romancing.
I was just one of the guys
and I thought I had it made.
I needed someone to show me how to love.

Juliet, oh Juliet,
the night was magic when we first met.
Juliet, oh Juliet,
you know you taught me to fly.
You take me clear to the sky.
And all the people around the world can stand aside
for me and my baby, Juliet.

Fighting with destiny,
fortune and fame but kept losing.
Playing a joker's game,
only myself I was fooling.

I was an average guy
in a world of empty dreams.
You've broken down all the walls
with your love.

Juliet, oh Juliet,
this kind of loving you don't forget.
Juliet, oh Juliet,
you know you taught me to fly.
You take me clear to the sky.
And all the people around the world can stand aside.

Close your eyes, Juliet, don't let go.

On and on, our love is like the sun.
It keeps going strong throughout eternity.

I wanna love you in my life, sweet Juliet.
Living without you in my life, oh my girl Juliet.

Juliet, oh Juliet,
this kind of loving you don't forget.
Juliet, oh Juliet,
you know you taught me to fly.
You take me clear to the sky.
And all the people around the world can stand aside.

Juliet, oh Juliet,
this kind of loving you don't forget.
Juliet, oh Juliet, Ah...
Juliet, oh Juliet...


HOW OLD ARE YOU

Driving my car, we stop for awhile.
It's getting so late and you're sending me wild.
I know that it's madness but oh,
I'm scared, oh so scared.

Taking my hand, try to settle down.
We won't say a word till it's over.
And your eyes are so inviting.
I know that if we stay
I'll never take you home.

You said you were 17
but you are somewhere in between,
that leads me on.
How old are you, oh.

Ran away to open arms.
You're just a girl with women's charms.
That turns me on.
How old are you, oh.

You've been busy lying.
You've made it up to now.
I'm caught up in the heat of the moment.
If you love me and then leave me,
it's the story of my life.
And I won't be in the morning the man I am tonight

So, little girl, please try and understand
you mean more to me than a one-night stand.
I'm losing all resistance, my head has lost control.
It's wrong, oh so wrong.

Deep in the night, shadows all around,
lost in the magic forever.
And I know that when you touch me
my heart won't let me down.
I'm scared, oh so scared.

You said you were 17
but you are somewhere in between,
that leads me on.
How old are you, oh.

Ran away to open arms.
You're just a girl with women's charms
that turns me on.How old are you, oh.

Fighting all temptation,
I've made it up to now.
I'm caught up in the heat of the moment.
If you love me and then leave me,
it's the story of my life.
And I won't be in the morning the man I am tonight.

You said you were 17
but you are somewhere in between,
that leads me on.
How old are you, oh.

Ran away to open arms.
You're just a girl with women's charms
that turns me on.
How old are you, oh.
...


IN AND OUT OF LOVE

Out in the world, lost in the night.
Broken inside, the dream's out of sight.
Running in circles, hot city streets.
Young girl, you came and you make me believe it.

I'm just a victim of emotion.
A storm within an ocean of heartache and wonderland.
Yesterday's gone and whatever happens now
I found you, answer to a dream.

In a world of strangers.
In and out of love.
Make it feel like the first time.
I been searching forever.
I been crazy falling in and out of love so long.

Innocent hearts, beating alone.
You opened my eyes, the hurting is gone.
I'm lying next to you, I'm holding on to you.
I'm born again girl and I can't let go of you.
I'm just a victim of emotion.

A storm within an ocean of heartache and wonderland.
Yesterday's gone and whatever happens now.
I found you, answer to a dream in a world of strangers.
In and out of love.
Make it feel like the first time.
I been searching forever.
I been crazy falling in and out of love so long.

I been searching for the real thing (oh I been searching).
I been waiting forever.
I've seen the light.
Whatever happens now, I found you, answer to a dream.
In a world of strangers
Hold me love...


KATHY'S GONE

Kathy's eyes were full of alibies,
she always played around.
Kathy said she needed life
instead of a suburban town.

And she didn't care when things were wrong or right,
heading out towards the city lights.
Telling me that at last she's alive, alive.

Kathy's gone and I can't go on,
I've been crying lonely nights.
No one knows where the true love goes in the end.

Oh, oh, oh, Kathy she shot down my world,
that's no surpise.

Oh, Kathy's dream to be a movie queen
was her obsession.
Sweet reviews inside the morning news
was her reflection.

And she ran away to find a fantasy
with the lovers and the limosines.
Could it be that at last she's alive, alive.

Kathy's gone and I can't go on,
I've been crying lonely nights.
No one knows where the true love goes in the end.

Oh, oh, oh, Kathy she shot down my world
in a love affair no one can mend.

Kathy's gone and I can't go on ,
I've been crying lonely nights.
No one knows where the true love goes in the end.

Oh, Kathy she shot down my world
in a love affair no one can mend.
No one knows where the true love goes in the end.


DON'T STOP THE NIGHT

Here is today,
I'm feeling blue.
It's Saturday night,
I'm waiting for you.

You said you'd come around at 8:44
with some other guy, you pass by my door.
I thought you were good, I felt you were real,
a special kind of girl .

So I walk down the street, into the town .
I'm following you and your new love around.
You said to go back to where I belong,
that she didn't care and I was so wrong.
Forever I know I will never let go
till she's mine, mine.

Baby, believe what you like, don't stop the night.
Baby, believe what you like, don't stop the night.
Ah...
Ah...

Make up my mind, I'm gonna be strong.
Don't wanna look sad if she comes along.
She may be with him but I'll play along.
I've waited all year, the night is so young.
Love is like a miracle, a distant shining light.
So many days I would hope and pray
she was mine, mine.

Baby, believe what you like, don't stop the night.
Baby, believe what you like, don't stop the night.

Baby, you said you'd never go.
And now, you don't wanna know.
Baby, you know just what you found.
Someone who's only hanging around.

Baby, believe what you like, don't stop the night.
Baby, believe what you want, don't stop the night
Baby, I know that you don't, you'd never leave...


ANOTHER LONELY NIGHT IN NEW YORK

Baby, oh no, I've been stuck here.
I've been searching so long.
Baby don't go, millions of people were wrong.
In the dark of the cold light of day,
I will still be here.
If my heart and my soul had their way,
you would still be here.

Another lonely night in New York.
The city of dreams just keeps on getting me down.
'Cause my baby's no longer around
and my feeling can never be found.

Another lonely night in New York
and my sorry eyes are looking out on the world.

Baby, you said, a guy like me was way out of line.
And knowing today, your leaving was a question of time.
In the mist of a sweet summer rain, you will find me here.
Should the sparkle of stars lose their way,
I'll be holding near.

Another lonely night in New York.
The city of dreams just keeps on getting me down.
'Cause my baby's no longer around
and my feelings can never be found.

Another lonely night in New York.
And my sorry eyes are looking out on the world.
In the dark of the cold light of day,
you will find me here.
If my heart and my soul had their way,
you would still be here.

Another lonely night in New York.
And I'm just a soul in the heart of the city.
Just another lonely night in New York.
The city of dreams just keeps on getting me down.
Just another lonely night in New York.


DANGER

Hey there woman, I came to California
to find a dream, I found you, girl.
Hey there baby, you pointed my direction
with tender love, changed my world.
I've been reaching for love so long.
I've just a holiday, yeah, to have you here.
I've been running down avenues
so filled with solitude and restless fears.

Danger,
slow down, haunting me.
Your love,
turning me round, rescued me.

Danger,
warning, I've seen the signs.
Oh, oh, oh,
here I go, this heart of mine.

I set sail on a rainy day,
steering my way through a cloudy sky.
In this heaven my dreams are never ending.
They're sending me through space and time.

You're the center of all my inspiration.
It's a wonderland, it's so divine.
I can't escape from this energy.
You put a spell on me yeah,
no turning around.

Power of love has no gravity.
It's got a hold on me,
I'm paralyzed.

Danger,
slow down, haunting me.
Your love,
turning me around, rescued me.

Distant dreams of yesterday,
when I was down and far away.
You promise me love, but I'm scared of losing
what I got, what I got today.

Danger,
slow down, haunting me.
Your love,
turning me around, rescued me.

Danger,
warning, I've seen the signs.
Oh, oh, oh,
here I go, this heart of mine.

Danger, slow down, haunting me.
Your love,
turning me around, rescued me....


HE CAN'T LOVE YOU

He may take you to shows every night,
fill your head with promise and music delight,
and shower you with kisses of sweet ecstasy,
but he'll never need you.

He may fly you for weekends away,
get your kicks in Paris and drive to Calais.
Life is so romantic, you're feeling alive.
He'll only leave you.

Living so exciting with your love affair.
Your heart has made you blind to me.
I'm sorry but I'm wondering.
Please answer me:

Can he love you like I love you?
Can he take you through the night?
Will he get you through the heartaches
and tomorrow hold you tight?

You may still survive the storm but
he can't love you, baby,
he don't love you, baby,
like I do.

Down the Champs-Elysees for some French cuisine.
You're looking like a model from some magazine.
And down to Monte Carlo for champagne on ice.
Yes, it's so inviting.

Your head is spinning, you're floating on air.
Your heart is beating but you're not aware.
The things that he told you were only a lie.
And he'll only hurt you.

Living so exciting with your love affair.
Your heart has made you blind to me.
I'm sorry but I'm wondering.
Please answer me:

Can he love you like I love you?
Can he take you through the night?
Will he get you through the heartaches
and tomorrow hold you tight?

You may still survive the storm but
he can't love you, baby,
he don't love you, baby,
like I do.

Can he know just what you're thinking
when you don't have words to say?
You may never understand that
he can't love you baby.

Can he love you like I love you?
Can he take your heart away?
Will he get you through the heartaches
and tomorrow hold you tight?...


HEARTS ON FIRE

The evening stars shine on me.
The subway noises haunt silent street.
The amber skies, the shadowed walls,
they lose their meaning, when twilight falls.

I'm in heaven, I can't go anywhere.
I control two hearts on fire.
Over and over.
Can't you hear me calling?
My love is alive.

The silver streams of city lights
reach out their arms to cut down the night.
And so you see, it's not a dream.
I've got my woman to satisfy me.

I'm in heaven, I can't go anywhere.
I control two hearts on fire.
Over and over.
Can't you hear me calling?
My love is alive.

I'm in heaven, I can't go anywhere.
I control two hearts on fire...


I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES

I don't believe in love.
I'm not afraid of the night.
People who follow their hearts survive.

Don't need the chains of life.
I am no refugee.
They say that the eyes of the soul surrender.

Give me little loving, can we set the world alight?
Every thing I wanted walking right beside me, baby.
When I think I'm losing, I just look at you and...

Baby, I believe in miracles,
burning through the night .
Shining with the power of lightning,
so exciting.
I'm on a journey,
I don't know if I can make it on my own.

Baby, I believe in miracles.
Destination, your desire.
And baby, oh sweet baby.

I can't agree with war.
It's not important to me.
The stranger that stands in the wind survives.

Give me little loving, can we set the world alight?
Every thing I wanted walking right beside me, baby.
When I think I'm losing, I just look at you and...

Baby, I believe in miracles,
burning through the night.
Shining with the power of lightning,
so exciting.
I'm on a journey,
I don't know if I can make it on my own.

Baby, I believe in miracles...
