about

Cindy Bullens didn't have much luck with record companies.
She signed with Casablanca when the label was close to self destructing.

This time Bullens co-produced "Steal The Night" with lead guitarist Mark Doyle.
With the exception of "To close To Home" [which she wrote with Doyle] the other nine tracks are self penned.

Her songs are better [or maybe they just sound better]
Bullens both sings and lays down some tough guitar riffs with real attitude.

This record was a winner. Apparently, there was no one to promote it, so a very good album disappeared almost entirely unheard.

Track Name: Full Tilt Rocker
Ooh, ooh, the night's growing colder
Ooh, ooh, and you're feeling much older
So you turn and you look at me
'Cause I'm a full tilt rocker and I'm just sixteen

Ooh, ooh, you've been making eyes at me
Just because I'm so young and free
Don't you wish you had a part of me?
'Cause I'm a full tilt rocker and I'm just sixteen

I don't need no
People telling me what to do
I'm a little bit young
But my aim is true

You can reach me
By letting me go and giving me room
I'm a little bit young
But I'm not a fool
Track Name: Real To Real
Hot nights in the city
With only the cool you can steal
You don't think you're ready for changes
But it's only from real to real

Hard days on the line
I know how it feels
You're already talking to the angels
But they listen on a real to real

Transformations of situations
You'll understand that the reason
That you're easing into nowhere

You never knew you were angry
You never knew you were holding it deep inside
You only knew you were hungry
But did you know it was going to be alright?

Breakdown on a bad day
With too many secrets to conceal
You thought you were slipping through your own way
But it's always from real to real

When the time comes
Just be ready
Don't be afraid
I know that feeling real is really hard to deal with

I never knew I was angry
I never knew I was holding it deep inside
I only knew I was hungry
But now I know it was going to be alright
Track Name: Trust Me
Who's been telling you these things
Don't you know it's not true
You believe those crazy guys
They deceive you with their lies
They'll make you believe what they want you to

Ooh, darling, look at me
I wouldn't be here if I did not care
I wouldn't hurt you if my life depended on it
Love don't work unless you learn to share it
No, it won't work at all

You got to trust me
Put me in your pocket
It's your lucky day
You'll be fine
Trust me
Plug me in your socket
It's the only way
Love will shine

Oh, I want nothing more
Than to take you in my arms
And to show you I'm true

It's clearly understood
I won't touch if you don't want me to
I know you
Believe me, darling, it's alright

Every time I see you
You know I bleed
'Cause, oh, you seem so scared
You got wounded in the war of hearts
And your love shattered everywhere
Nobody seemed to care

But you can trust me
Put me in your pocket
It's your lucky day
You'll be fine
Trust me; plug me in your socket
It's the only way love will shine
Track Name: Hurry Up Forever
You say you will never leave her
You've found the girl of your dreams
You say love will last forever
Assuming forever's what it seems

But I'm in love
And, oh, you know me well
I'll stick around
'Cause you never can tell
You might find forever hard to sell

You remember last year
Falling the first time around
I was, oh, so tender
You were the only boy in town

I'm still in love
And, oh, you know me well
I'll be around
'Cause you never can tell
She might find forever hard to spell

Hurry up forever
Hurry up and be mine
Hurry up forever
Hurry up, hurry up
Track Name: Steal The Night
You caught me looking through your window last night
I only wanted to see you in the night
I didn't mean to cause harm
I was crazy to do it

But if I told you just how many nights go by
When I hold you just by focusing my eyes
I may be a prowler in the dark
But I would never hurt you

I only steal the night away
Steal the night away
I can make it without you for one more day
If I steal the night away

I see you downtown and I watch you in school
They know I'm staring
They love to be cruel
But I can't shake away from this dream
You're gonna happen to me, to me

So, darling, let me steal the night away
Steal the night away
I didn't mean it, baby, to cause you the pain
Only steal the night away

If I fantasize
I'm sorry I hurt you by using my eyes
It's over and done
You'll never catch me again. You'll never catch me again

Steal the night away
Steal the night away
If I could hold you beside me
I know you would say
Baby, steal the night away
Track Name: Too Close To Home
Where did you get that information?
Why did you plan this infiltration?
I just take for granted
That I come across so cool
You're not supposed to know

Chorus:
Ooh, you're hitting me
Too close to home
Trying to take my heart away
Ooh, you're hitting me
Too close to home
(I don't even know myself)

There's not supposed to be anybody loving me
I don't want to know
I don't want to hear, I don't want to see
Oh, baby, try to understand it
You're driving me insane; you're never gonna win

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Powerless
Hand me a heart I can hold
Giving me total control
Something I have power over

It's true all that they say about you
The way that you sway me like you do
I've been broken
I'm in love with you

Now I'm powerless over your love, baby
Powerless over you
I'm powerless over everything
I can't get through

I had part of my heart paralyzed
Escaping the look in your eyes
Feels like trouble

It's serious
Beginning to think I'm delirious
My head signals no but my lips say yes
It's helpless
Hopelessly in love with you

I'm powerless over your love, baby
Powerless over you
I'm powerless over everything
I can't get through
Track Name: Raincheck on Romance
If he calls, tell him I can't answer
If he knocks upon my door, tell him I'm not home
It's not that I don't care about him
He knows I really do
But I'm afraid he'll make me fall in love
And I'm just not ready to

Chorus:
I gotta take a raincheck on romance
I can't see you anymore
You can calculate the score
Slip it through the door
I don't want to see you anymore
Raincheck on romance
I don't want it anymore
Leave a note upon the wall
Of the phone booth where you call
I don't want to see you anymore

Tonight's the night
I tell you I can feel it
He'll put his hand on mine
Then what am I gonna do?
How can I tell him I'm a baby in disguise?
I've barely kissed the lips of love
And I've never closed my eyes

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Two-Track Mind
I don't like to give advice
But you better treat her nice
'Cause you know that she's a friend of mine
I won't give you away
By anything I say
If you make sure you stay in line

You've got this look on your lips
That swears it's all for keeps
Only lonely girls can see

But just remember this
Your kiss is still a kiss
And you're a boy with a two-track mind

You're a boy with a two-track mind
You keep leaving the hearts behind
You'll never be satisfied
You're a boy with a two-track mind

I watch your roving eyes
While you whisper precious lies
Into the ears of helpless girls
Now here's this friend of mine
Just about to step in line
To hear the wisdom of your words

I never mention that day
When you swept me away
I surrendered everything

But, oh, you're such a tease
Don't tell her if you please
I'm a victim of your two-track mind
Track Name: Holding Me Crazy
Put me in prison
Out of the clutches of your love
I'm afraid of what I'm feeling
And I cringe at what I'm thinking of

Like a virgin schoolgirl
I'm just waiting for my chance to break away
My heart is ticking like a time-bomb
And it's bound to go off any day

Holding me crazy
Oh, holding me crazy
And I just can't break it
This chain on my love

(Holding me...Holding me down)

Painful conditions
Taking me back to my bed
I pull all the covers way up over my eyes
With the pillow securing my head

I lay there thinking
That I know you're gonna make me insane
Well, I have got my reasons
But still you just keep getting your way

Holding me crazy
Oh, holding me crazy
And I just can't make it
Got a chain on my love

A voice inside me I heard it say
You got to get on your feet today
Here's your chance to break away
You better go now
So I tiptoed across the floor
I put my ear up against the door
I couldn't hear him anymore and so I'm gone now

Oh, I know now

Holding me crazy...
Oh, no, he won't let you break away
Oh, no, he won't let you go
Never gonna chain my love
