From the Album:
* Keeper of the flame

There's a heartache, come over me
Can't be imagination
I worry & I cry for you
Guess I'll have to learn to live with it
A heartache hauntin' me
Feels like electrocution
I'm hurt, you never understood
One word - one word
Who are you, sittin' on your throne?
I used to be a slave in your temple
Now you tell me that you're so alone
On the run for your life
Refrein:
One look through the eyes of a stranger
One night in the arms of a fool
One glance down the shaft of a goldmine
Nothin' could be better
Nothin' could be better
Do now, do now what you wanna do
Tell a lie now, tell the truth
There's gotta be more than a thousand roads to Rome
So follow your footsteps home
One word, makes all a difference in the world
One is being born
Two is what you're going for
Three is the price you pay
For what you've been lookin' for
And the word is love. Love!
Refrein:
One look through the eyes of a stranger
One night in the arms of a fool
One glance down the shaft of a goldmine
Nothin' could be better
Nothin' could be better
Do now, do now what you wanna do
Tell a lie now, tell the truth
There's gotta be more than a thousand roads to Rome
So follow your footsteps home
One word, makes all a difference in the world
Make one hell of a difference in the world
One word, one single word
