about

Cindy Bullens returned after 10 years with her third shot at stardom, supported by some high-quality help: Bob Clearmountain, perhaps the top rock & roll producer/mixer of the day, was behind the board and multi-instrumentalist David Mansfield (of the Rolling Thunder Revue and The Alpha Band) was leading the musicians. Bullens herself had matured. Now a full-bodied, if less appealingly frantic singer, she conveyed more passion (and a little less excitement) than she had 10 years before, and she still knew how to rock. If Cindy Bullens was her least impressive effort, despite boasting powerful playing and state-of-the-art sound, it was because Bullens's songs had a few too many borrowings in the riffs, a few too many cliches in the lyrics. Nevertheless, Bullens remained an appealing rocker who should've been a contender.

Track Name: Breakin' The Chain
Well, I ran to my car
Got in and grabbed the wheel
Put on my darkest sunglasses
I could feel the wall of steel
Drove to your house as fast as I could
I was desperate for comfort and misunderstood

Something happened when I saw your face
The whole wide world has changed
Bar the window
Lock the door

Don't let me leave here tonight
Don't let me go home alone
There's something in this room I need
It's where I belong
Down on my knees
I can't fight it anymore
Breaking the chain that holds my heart

Well, I've been my own prisoner
And I've been my own jailer
And I try and I try to set myself free
But I just can't shake the little devil in me

You told me you would give me shelter
That I won't cry anymore
Bar the window
Lock the door

Don't let me leave here tonight
Don't let me go home alone
There's something in this room I need
It's where I belong

I could be safe in your arms
If I let you hold me tonight
Take this wild heart of mine
And make me feel alright
Down on my knees
I can't fight it anymore
Breaking the chain that holds my heart
Track Name: Let Me Love Somebody
Breathe in
Breathe out

You got hurt so bad
Watching the world come down around you
Well, I can't change that
But I can be here for you
I saw you walking down the street today
You were talking to yourself
I heard you say

Let me love somebody
Let the river wash over me
I got to love somebody

Isn't it funny how strange life is?
I never knew that I could feel like this

Now my heart's on fire
Feeling my body shake and tremble
Such sweet desire
Don't let it slip through our fingers
It was just the night before
I was sobbing in my sleep
I cried out loud

Let me love somebody
Let the river wash over me
I got to love somebody
Let me love somebody
Feel the river rush over me
I got to love somebody

Breathe in
Breathe out

Now you're standing so close to me
It takes my breath away
Oh, can't you see it's me?
It's me and you
Now we're face to face

Let me love somebody
Let the river rush over me
I got to love somebody
Let me love somebody
Feel the river rush over me
I got to love somebody
Track Name: Where Did I Hide My Heart?
Where did I hide my heart?
Now that I need it
I just can't find it, no
Where did I hide my heart?
Maybe tonight I will remember

I can picture that day in December
Hot tears were freezing on my face
I swore that never again
Would I be hurt that bad
But now I'm desperate to remember
Just where I locked this heart away
I figured it was the end of any love like that

Where did I hide my heart?
Now that I need it
I just can't find it
Where did I hide my heart?
Maybe tonight I will remember

I had seen you coming from a distance
Hot summer nights were on my mind
You started up my desire
As I let down my guard
Darling, darling, I need your assistance
Help me clear the fear away
In time to turn the burn into fire before I go too far

Where did I hide my heart?
Now that I need it
I just can't find it
Where did I hide my heart?
Maybe tonight I will remember

Maybe tonight I will remember
With you holding me tonight

Baby, I keep on searching
Now maybe tonight I'll keep on searching
I know I'm gonna find it

Where did I hide my heart?
Now that I need it
I just can't find it
Where did I hide my heart?
Maybe tonight I will remember
Track Name: Don't Let This Love Go Down
I don't remember the time
I don't recall if it was day or night
I just remember the click of the door
As it closed

I ran for help to the phone
My friends they say easy come easy go
It wasn't easy coming
It wasn't be easy going
Back to this life all alone

Don't let this love go down
Don't let this love go down
Don't let it fall
Like leaves in the pouring rain
Don't let this love go down

Hello, old Mr. Sun
Today I'm making my coffee for one
It's only me
And my heartache for my company

I feel a sting in my cheek
I woke up knowing I cried in my sleep
It's only twenty-four hours and already
I'm in a hurt way too deep

Don't let this love go down
Don't let this love go down
Don't let it fall
Like leaves in the pouring rain
Don't let this love go down

Please don't tell me that it's over
I can't accept what I can't explain
In a world of changes
It's hard to hold on
Try, try, try
Don't let it slip away

Don't let this love go down
Don't let this love go down...
