Prisoners

Original and similar lyrics
Josie works the counter at the downtown five and dime, anything at all to help her pass the time. Her mama keeps the baby and grandpa rambles on about the good times playing in his mind. It's a hard life living when you're lonely, it's a long night sleeping alone. It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow, it's a long, long way home. Josie spends the evening with the people in the pages of the paperback she picked up at the store. Or sometimes it's the TV, or she'll try to write a letter, oh, they don't come too often anymore. It's a hard life living when you're lonely, it's a long night sleeping alone. It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow, it's a long, long way home. I stare at the gray walls before me, I see her face in the stone. I try to imagine our baby, I wish they would let me go home. I wish they would let me go home. (I wish they would let me go home) It's a hard life living when you're lonely, (I wish they would let me go home) It's a long night sleeping alone. (I wish they would let me go home) It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow, (I wish they would let me go home) It's a long, long way home. (I wish they would let me go home) It's a long, long way home. (I wish they would let me go home) Bringing me and the other boys home, (I wish they would let me go home) Bringing me and the other boys home.

Hardline

JIMMY BARNES "Two Fires"
Well it’s late at night something just ain’t right I can tell by the look in your eye You don’t say two words You got a stare that burns It’s gonna be a long long night Giving me no quarter When you know you oughta It’s a sin they way you push me around Yeah you put me down all over town Did my best I never passed your test Take your shot give all you’ve got Have your fun and I'll just turn and run Baby take a hard line For the last time Baby take a hard line I’ll be better off in the long run I can take the pressure If that’s what gives you pleasure And I don’t mind if you wanna fight You’ll get no resistance ‘cause two wrongs never make a right I think we lost control It’s gonna take it’s toll I don’t wanna be your wipping boy This is our last chance It’s time to make a stand Come girl can’t we say we’re sorry Take your shot give all you’ve got Have your fun and I'll just turn and run Baby take a hard line For the last time Baby take a hard line I’ll be better off in the long run Come on darling Tell me what are you waiting for You’re the only one Who can pick me off of the floor

This Night

BILLY JOEL "An Innocent Man"
Didn't I say I wasn't ready for a romance Didn't we promise We would only be friends And so we danced Though it was only a slow dance I started breaking my promises Right there and then Didn't I swear There would be no complications Didn't you want Someone who's seen it all before Now that you're here It's not the same situation Suddenly I don't remember the rules anymore This night is mine It's only you and I Tomorrow Is a long time away This night can last forever I've been around Someone like me should know better Falling in love Would be the worst thing I could do Didn't I say I needed time to forget her Aren't you running from someone Who's not over you How many nights Have I been lonely without you I tell myself How much I really don't care How many nights Have I been thinking about you Wanting to hold you But knowing you would not be there This night You're mine It's only you and I I'll tell you To forget yesterday This night we are together This night Is mine It's only you and I Tomorrow Is such a long time away This night can last forever Tomorrow Is such a long time away This night can last forever

How Long

LIONEL RICHIE "Renaissance"
Every time I see you and I look into your eyes There's a feeling that I get And it's way down deep inside, girl I've been trying to hold on, but you say that you're not sure I just hope you realize what my heart is going through How long, must this feeling go on How long, must I stand the pain and How long, must this feeling go on Waiting for the night Waiting for the right time to come I know all about the hurt and the problems in the past I know why you're scared of love, 'Cause you think it just won't last long Well, I'm here to tell you what I'm saying is all true There ain't nobody else in life That can take the place of you How long, must this feeling go on How long, must I stand the pain and How long, must this feeling go on Waiting for the night Waiting for the right time to run Why can't we just run away, and oh run A place where we can be alone and nobody finds us, run Can we both just run away, and oh run Girl, I can't wait to have you How long, must this feeling go on How long, must I stand the pain and How long, must this feeling go on Waiting for the night Waiting for the right time to come, to come.

Through The Long Night

BILLY JOEL "Glass Houses"
The cold hands The sad eyes The dark Irish silence It's so late But I'll wait Through the long night with you With you The warm tears The bad dreams The soft trembling shoulders The old fears But I'm here Through the long night with you With you Oh, what has it cost you I almost lost you A long, long time ago Oh, you should have told me But you had to bleed to know All your past sins Are since past You should be sleeping It's all right Sleep tight Through the long night with me With me No, I didn't start it You're broken hearted From a long, long time ago Oh, the way you hold me Is all that I need to know And it's so late But I'll wait Through the long night with you With you

Keep Me Waiting

ROXETTE "Tourism"
I hit the coast with the faith of a preacherman. I saw a ghost with a face like a madman. I had this dream I was sleeping at the Royal Ball. I hit the streets, hey watch me in the monitor! I saw a clone who looked just like a senator. I checked the clock, I felt that it was time to go go go. Then came you. Why did you keep me waiting so long Why did you keep me waiting so long Why did you keep me waiting so long I was a spy, I was captured by the enemies. I made a million selling secret fantasies. I saw my love wasted in a pale gray zone. I was the quake shaking every monument. I had to fi-find out what all the money meant. I checked the sun, I knew that it was time to go go go. Then came you...
