"Playing To Win" by Little River Band, which was released in 1984 and consists of 9 songs.
Ohh, ooh, ooh oh ooh, oh ohh.
Ohh, aah, ah ah aah, aah.
Old lady in the street ain't here no more,
Got robbed last week at her own front door.
No one saw her fall and no one heard her cry,
Everyone there just turned a blind eye.
Don't look left, now don't look right,
Take another step back, don't see no sight.
Don't Blame Me
I was just thirteen when I left home,
Living in my daddy's shadow,
There was so much goin' on that he couldn't feel.
There were times when I was scared as hell,
But nobody cared, and I could tell
That the love he spoke of just wasn' treal.
Don't blame me if I just don't like it that way,
Please let me go, don't ask me to stay,
I'm beggin' you please just don't blame me.
One Shot In The Dark
I was hangin' from the rafters,
Lookin' through the window.
Suddenly my ears were
Out in the street.
Sirens were screaming from far away,
All I can feel is the heat.
I was at home only yesterday,
Something is happening to me.
Piece Of The Dream
I'm spending way too much time on my own.
I've missed a lot and I'm tired of being alone.
You call me out with that look in your eye.
It's time I answered and kissed this life goodbye.
I toss and turn every night in my sleep.
I've locked myself inside and lost the key.
I want a piece of the dream,
Taste of the cream I've been chasin'.
And to make it complete,
Playing To Win
If you want me, come and get me,
You don't have a chance if you don't move now.
I'm not waiting any longer,
You know that I'm playing to win this time.
When you make your move,
I won't hesitate.
If you take too long,
You could be too late.
This time I'm playing to win.
I wanna get to you, where did you go?
Is there another world that's part of you?
Is there another world?
When will you reappear?
It's a mystery.
It never happened before.
I looked up at the sky,
You disappeared through a door.
Was it imagination?
Friday night on a one-way street,
Cold, damp, and dark but you could still feel the heat,
Movin' through the shadows at the speed of light.
I said, you know I've just run away from home,
I'm tired of bein' out here all alone,
Let's get connected, baby, play on a winning team.
I am relentless with desire to get to you,
Relentless and there's fire in everything I do,
Passion in my soul, something that I can't control,
Through Her Eyes
Late at night the older crowd,
Empty walls, and she is found.
Changing moves, she walks alone.
City looms, she made it alone.
Through her eyes I'm crying.
Through her eyes I see.
Through her eyes, pressure
Of all that keeps changing me.
When Cathedrals Were White
The world goes to war,
But who is it for?
Can we sleep in our beds at night?
And remember the pain,
And not want to regain
When cathedrals were white.
You know I still think of you,
And all we went through
But the years have now faded the light.
