about

This album began life as pre-album demos for the album Still Alive. The tapes from those sessions were kept by the producer for 36 years in various garages and basements until he reconnected with Jiva band members and started to re-release all the band's material, saving this never-before heard set of songs for last.

Album download includes SUNSET ROAD desktop picture and a CD label.

Track Name: LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
lanning & hilton

WE’RE LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
THE COLORS THAT WE LIVE
JUST LIKE THE SUNLIGHT IN THE MORNING,
REFLECTING IN OUR EYES

YOUNG LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
THA HARMONY WE BREATHE
JUST LIKE THE QUIET OUTSIDE MY WINDOW,
RESOUNDING IN MY HEART

WE’RE LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
YOUNG LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS

LOOKING BACK ON ALL THE YEARS
THE LOOKING GLASS WAS EMPTY
AND I GAZED IN DESPERATION,
UNTIL YOU CAME ALONG
WELL I KNEW RIGHT THEN AND THERE
THAT YOU COULD BE THE ONE
WHO WOULD FILL MY ASPIRATIONS,
ENLIGHTEN ALL MY DREAMS

WE’RE LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
YOUNG LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS

LOVE LIFTED ME FROM PRIDE
THE DREAMS WENT ON THE SAME
WRAPPED UP IN ECSTASY AND MADNESS
AND I FOUND MY LOVE INSIDE

WE’RE LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
YOUNG LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS, WHOA
WE’RE LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS
YOUNG LOVERS MADE FROM FOOLS

BE MY PRECIOUS, PRECIOUS JEWEL
BE MY PRECIOUS, PRECIOUS JEWEL...
Track Name: IT'S SO EASY
ITʼS SO EASY
lanning & hilton 1978

ITʼS SO EASY, SO EASY ,FOR ANY SOUL, FOR ANY SOUL

TO GIVE UP FIGHTING AND TO GIVE UP HATE, INDIVIDUALLY,
AND RECONSTRUCT THE WORLD STARTING WITH
EACH ONE OF US
GROW A VIRTUE TREE

ITʼS SO EASY, SO EASY ,FOR ANY SOUL, FOR ANY SOUL

TO DECIDE WHAT HE WANTS TO DO
AND WHAT HE WANTS HIS WORLD TO BE
KILLING EVERYONE , WONʼT GET US A SINGLE THING
WILL IT BRING US PEACE? NO!
SORRY

WHEN YOU SURRENDER TO IT

I WATCH MY BROTHER HE FALLS
AND IT DONʼT DO ANY GOOD AT ALL
FOR THE WORLD TO COME IN AND DEMAND HIS DESIRE WHEN HE COULD BE , SO MUCH HIGHER

ITʼS SO EASY, SO EASY ,FOR ANY SOUL, FOR ANY SOUL
Track Name: THUNDER EYES
THUNDER EYES
lanning & hilton

PARDON ME?, I CAN SEE INTO YOUR THUNDER EYES
I WANT SO BADLY JUST TO HAVE YOU NEAR
PARDON ME? CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT I AM SHY?
DON’T WANNA CAUSE A SCENE ‘CAUSE YOU ARE HERE

IT SEEMS THAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT
TO SAY MOST SIMPLY I LOVE YOU
AND NOW MY HEART DEMANDS COMPLETE SURRENDER
TO SOMETHING JUST AS SIMPLE, BEYOND YOUR THUNDER EYES

PARDON ME, I CAN SEE INTO YOUR THUNDER EYES
WE WANT IT TO BE MORE THAN JUST A DREAM
AND TAKE AWAY ALL THE SADNESS WE HAVE KNOWN INSIDE
I KNOW YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN,
THUNDER EYES

THUNDER EYES,
LOOK AT ME SO I CAN SEE THOSE THUNDER EYES
THUNDER EYES,
LOOK AT ME SO I CAN SEE THOSE THUNDER EYES

IT SEEMS THAT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT
TO SAY MOST SIMPLY I LOVE YOU
AND NOW MY HEART DEMANDS COMPLETE SURRENDER
TO SOMETHING JUST AS SIMPLE...

IT SEEMS TO ME WHEN I LOOK INTO YOUR THUNDER EYES
BEYOND YOUR EYES THE STORM HAS DISAPPEARED

THUNDER EYES, LOOK AT ME SO I CAN SEE THOSE THUNDER EYES...THUNDER EYES, LOOK AT ME SO I CAN SEE THOSE
THUNDER EYES...
Track Name: THE STRANGER
THE STRANGER
lanning & hilton

CYNICAL LAUGHTER ON THE BOULEVARD
AS THE STRANGER MAKES HIS WAY
COURAGE CALLS HIM FROM THE CORNER OF
THE ONLY STREET THAT KNOWS NO PAIN

CRITICS STANDING ON THE OTHER SIDE
TEAM TO UNDERMINE THE PLAN
FAIL IN RECOGNIZING DESTINY
‘CAUSE YOUR THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN

STRANGER CAN I WALK BESIDE YOU?
CAN YOU TEACH ME IN YOUR LOVE?
WITH THE POWER THAT’S INSIDE YOU
YOU CAN SHOW ME ALL I NEED TO KNOW RIGHT NOW

ILLUSION PROVES TO BE THE COUNTERPOINT
IN THE WORLD OF PLEASURE/PAIN
THROUGH THE EYES OF THOSE WHO DO ANOINT
CHOSEN CHILDREN UNTO FAME

BUT THE STRANGER’S EYES ARE FIXED UPON
HORIZONS BETTER UNEXPLAINED
ECHOES THOUGHTS OF THOSE WHO HAVE GONE ON
SPEAKING WORDS THAT CAN’T BE NAMED

STRANGER CAN I WALK BESIDE YOU?
CAN YOU TEACH ME IN YOUR LOVE?
WITH THE POWER THAT’S INSIDE YOU
YOU CAN SHOW ME ALL I NEED TO KNOW RIGHT NOW
Track Name: HOME AGAIN
HOME AGAIN
rawat ,lanning ,hilton 1978

UNTO THEE OH LORD WE UNFOLD
UNTO THEE OH LORD WE SURRENDER
FOR FROM THEE WEʼVE COME
AND UNTO YOU MY LORD LET ME COME BACK TO YOU
HOME AGAIN
Track Name: WOULD NOT BE LIVING
WOULD NOT BE LIVING
lanning & hilton 1978

I DONʼT WORRY ABOUT WHEN I CALL
IT DOSENʼT MATTER TO YOU
ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT I FALL
I KNOW IʼLL GET THE MESSAGE THROUGH

OR I WOULD NOT BE LIVING FOR YOU
AT EACH CHANGE IN MY LIFE I KNEW

NOW THEREʼS NO ONE WHO COULD LOVE ME MORE
OR UNDERSTAND MY WAYS
YOU SEE INTO MY SOUL
I KNOW ITʼS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I CAN SAY

OR I WOULD NOT BE FEELING YOU GAVE ME
SOMETHING BETTER TO SEE
AND I CAN FEEL YOU CHANGING MY WAYS
OR I WOULD NOT BE LIVING TODAY

I KNOW I COULDNʼT BE SO LONELY
AS I WAS BEFORE I WAS SURE
NOW THEREʼS NO ONE WHO CAN STAND BY YOU
YOUR REPLACING THAT EMPTY FEELING TOO

DONʼT WORRY ABOUT WHEN I CALL
IT DOSENʼT MATTER TO YOU
ANY TIME OF DAY OR NIGHT I FALL
I KNOW IʼLL GET THE MESSAGE THROUGH
I WOULD NOT BE LIVING FOR YOU
Track Name: SURRENDER
SURRENDER
(JUDY JACOBS ROSEN)

WON’T YOU TAKE MY HANDS AND FEET
PUT THEM IN YOUR CONTROL?
LET ME FEEL YOU MOVIN’ ME
FROM THE CENTER OF MY SOUL

SURRENDER, SURRENDER, SURRENDER TO YOUR LOVER
SURRENDER, SURRENDER, SURRENDER TO YOUR LOVER

MAKE MY LIPS FORM THE WORDS
THAT YOU WOULD HAVE ME SAY
LET EVERY TASK THAT I UNDERTAKE
BE DIVINELY DIRECTED YOUR WAY

I MEAN TO SURRENDER, SURRENDER,
SURRENDER TO YOUR LOVER
SURRENDER, SURRENDER, SURRENDER TO YOUR LOVER

YEAH WELL I’VE BEEN SWOONIN’
SINCE THE MOMENT I HEARD YOUR NAME
YOU’VE TAKEN MY SADNESS
YOU TURNED MY LONELY NIGHTS INTO DAY

I’LL BEND MY BODY THE WAY THAT YOU CHOOSE
IT DON’T MATTER TO ME
I’M JUST YOUR PUPPET, PULL ON MY STRING
I GOT TO DO WHAT COMES NATURALLY

I NEED TO
SURRENDER, SURRENDER, SURRENDER TO MY LOVER
SURRENDER, SURRENDER, TO YOUR YOUR LOVER

I CANNOT STAND IT, TO BE SEPARATED FROM YOU
LORD I’M SO ENCHANTED WITH THE CHANGES
YOU GOT ME GOIN’ THROUGH

I’LL BEND MY BODY THE WAY THAT YOU CHOOSE
IT DON’T MATTER TO ME
I’M JUST YOUR PUPPET, COME ON, PULL ON MY STRING
I GOT TO DO WHAT COMES NATURALLY

I MEAN TO,
SURRENDER, SURRENDER, SURRENDER TO YOUR LOVER...
Track Name: ONLY YOU
ONLY YOU
lanning & hilton 1978

ONLY YOU, CAN KEEP ME AWAY FROM ALL DOUBTING
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY AGAIN
ONLY YOU, CAN KEEP ME FROM FEELING LONELY
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE ME FEEL IʼM LIVING AGAIN

ON MY OWN I NEVER COULD MAKE IT
IʼD JUST FALL IN MY FOOTSTEPS AGAIN
WITHOUT YOU MY LIFEʼS BEING WASTED
WITHOUT YOU THIS FEELING WOULD END

ONLY YOU, CAN KEEP ME AWAY FROM ALL DOUBTING
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY AGAIN
ONLY YOU, CAN KEEP ME FROM FEELING LONELY
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE ME FEEL IʼM LIVING AGAIN

NO ONE ELSE COULD EVER MAKE ME FEEL THAT
IʼM JUST A LEAF AND YOU ARE THE WIND
YOU CAN TAKE ME WHERE EVER YOU WANT TO
CAUSE I KNOW KNOW YOU ARE WITHIN

ONLY YOU, CAN KEEP ME AWAY FROM ALL DOUBTING
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY AGAIN
ONLY YOU, CAN KEEP ME FROM FEELING LONELY
ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE ME FEEL IʼM LIVING AGAIN
Track Name: WHAT I SEE IN YOU
WHAT I SEE IN YOU
jack vieira 1978

IʼM LOOKING IN YOUR EYES I CANʼT SEE YOU
IS THIS ANOTHER MASQUERADE
IT SEEMS IʼVE BEEN CHASING SHADOWS, AND LOOKING FOR THE CLUES, SEEMS IʼM ONLY TRYING, CAUSE IʼVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE

TO YOU, YOU MAKE MY LIFE A WONDER
AND PULL , ME UP WHEN I GO UNDER
AND TIME NEVER MAKES ME SAD ANYMORE
IT JUST WHIRLS ME LIKE A TEMPEST
THROUGH THE EYE OF EVERY STORM THAT I GO THROUGH

IʼM LOOKING FOR THE PLACE THAT I CAN BE WITH YOU
I LOVE YOU DEEPER THAN I KNOW
I WAIT UPON YOUR DOORSTEP, I FALL INTO YOUR GAME
EVERY TIME MY EYES SEE YOU, MY LIFE IS NOT THE SAME, AGAIN

YOU CHANGE ME AT A GLANCE
AND GIVE MY HEART ANOTHER CHANCE
TO LIVE MOMENT BY MOMENT I AM; TRANSFORMED BEFORE THE MIRROR
AND I SEE MY IMAGE CLEARER, THAN BEFORE

AH YOU GIVE LIFE TO ME, FLY MY SOUL AWAY, NOW YOU SHOW STRENGTH THROUGH ME, AND KEEP MY DEMONS AT BAY

I LOOK INTO THE HEART OF ALL I FEEL FOR YOU
I STAND IN RAPTURED BY YOUR GAZE
YOU PULL UPON ME SOFTLY, AND PLAY THE TUNE OF LOVE ,MEET ME IN THE MEADOW WITH THE STARRY SKYS ABOVE

AND DANCE, AROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND
AND LIFT MY FEET ABOVE THE GROUND
AND PIERCE THE DARKNESS AS WE CLING TO WHAT IS TRUE, AND THE SONG I SING EACH MOMENT IS JUST A WHISPER OF WHAT I SEE IN YOU
Track Name: NEED YOUR LOVE
NEED YOUR LOVE
lanning & hilton

WELL I’VE SEEN SOME ROCK ‘N ROLLERS
JUST A’ WASTING’ THEIR PRECIOUS TIME
TALKIN’ DOWN SOMEBODY ELSE’S BUSINESS
WHEN I’M TRYIN’ TO TEND TO MINE
MAYBE WHAT THEY NEED IS A REVELATION
TO SHOW THEM A BRIGHTER DAY
I’VE SEEN SO MANY OF THEM SPENDIN’ ALL THEIR MONEY
AND THROWIN’ THEIR LIVES AWAY

DON’T YOU KNOW THEY
THEY NEED YOUR LOVE
THEY NEED YOUR LOVE
THEY KEEP BRINGIN’ HOME THE BACON
WHEN IT REALLY COMES DOWN TO YOU

JUST TO GET DOWN HOT AND DIRTY
IS ALL A ROCK N’ ROLLER REALLY NEEDS
BUT HOW CAN YOU KEEP GETTIN’ DOWN HOT AND DIRTY WHEN THERE’S SO MANY MOUTHS TO FEED?
I THINK IT’S TIME WE GATHERED UP ALL THE LOVERS
LIKE WE DID BACK IN ‘68
ONLY WE CAN’T FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE
IN A COLD WORLD FILLED WITH HATE

(CHORUS)
DON’T YOU KNOW THEY
THEY NEED YOUR LOVE
THEY NEED YOUR LOVE
THEY KEEP BRINGIN’ HOME THE BACON
WHEN IT REALLY COMES DOWN TO YOU

WELL I’VE SEEN SOME ROCK ‘N ROLLERS
JUST A’ WASSTIN’ THEIR PRECIOUS TIME
TALKIN’ DOWN SOMEBODY ELSE’S BUSINESS
WHEN I’M TRYIN’ TO TEND TO MINE
MAYBE WHAT THEY NEED IS A REVELATION
TO SHOW THEM A BRIGHTER DAY
I’VE SEEN SO MANY OF THEM SPENDIN’ ALL THEIR MONEY
AND THROWIN’ THEIR LIVES AWAY

(CHORUS)
DON’T YOU KNOW THEY NEED YOUR LOVE...ETC...
(WOO WOO! WOO WOO!) (WA WA?) (WEE WEE?) ;O)
