More Than a Feeling

Length: 4:45

Release: 1986

Opening Lyrics:

I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
Turned on some music to start my day
I lost myself in a familiar song
I closed my eyes and I slipped away
It’s more than a feeling
(More than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play
(More than a feeling)
I begin dreaming
(More than a feeling)
‘Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin’ away
So many people have come and gone
Their faces fade as the years go by
Yet I still recall as I wander on

Peace of Mind

Length: 5:03

Release: 1976

Opening Lyrics:

Now if you’re feelin’ kinda low ’bout the dues you’ve been paying
Future’s coming much too slow
And you wanna run, but somehow you just keep on stayin’
Can’t decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I understand about indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind
Now you’re climbin’ to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn’t take too long
Can’t cha see there’ll come a day when it won’t matter
Come a day when you’ll be gone
Ohh, ohh

Foreplay / Long Time

Length: 7:47

Release: 1976

Opening Lyrics:

It’s been such a long time
I think I should be goin’, yeah
And time doesn’t wait for me
It keeps on rollin’
Sail on, on a distant highway, yeah
I’ve got to keep on chasin’ a dream
I’ve gotta be on my way
Wish there was something I could say
I’m just movin’ on
You’ll forget about me after I’ve been gone
(And I take what I find) I don’t want no more
It’s just outside of your front door
Ah yeah yeah yeah
It’s been such a long time


Length: 4:16

Release: 1986

Opening Lyrics:

Babe, tomorrow’s so far away
There’s something I just have to say
I don’t think I could hide what I’m feelin’ inside
Another day, knowin’ I love you
And I, I’m getting too close again
I don’t wanna see it end
If I tell you tonight, would you turn out the lights
And walk away knowin’ I love you?
I’m gonna take you by surprise
And make you realize, Amanda
I’m gonna tell you right away
I can’t wait another day, Amanda
I’m gonna say it like a man
And make you understand, Amanda


Length: 4:21

Opening Lyrics:

We’re gonna play you a song, a little bit of rock-n-roll
You gotta let yourself go, the band’s gonna take control
We’re gettin’ off today
We’ll pick you up and take you away
Get down tonight
Smokin’, smokin’
We’re cookin’ tonight, just keep on tokin’
Smokin’, Smokin’
I feel alright, mamma I’m not jokin’, yeah
Get your feet to the floor, everybody rock and roll
You’ve got nothing to lose just the rhythm and blues, that’s all, yeah
We’re gonna feel ok
We’ll pick you up and take you away
Get down tonight
