Too Scared to Run

TOO SCARED TO RUN

Too scared I could not run
I could not make a sound
Lights were flashing
My whole life passing
My feet were stuck to the ground

Too light to call it night
Too dark to call it day
Too scared to stay and fight
Too scared to run away

So scared I could not move
I could not make a sound
There were people running
People shouting
Flashes all around

Too scared to run
Too scared to run away

Too scared I could not think
My eyes could not scarcely see
My heart was racing
My legs were shaking
They would not carry me

Lights were flashing
My whole life passing
My heart, my heart
My heart was racing
My life was shattered
Could not see, I could not see

Chasing Shadows

CHASING SHADOWS

Seen from the shadows
Deep in the night
I know you're near
But you're nowhere in sight
Seen from the darkness
Down in the streets
I hear your footsteps
I hear your heartbeat
Oh, I can hear your heartbeat

A misty corner
Away from the light
I know you're near
But you're nowhere in sight
On my shoulder
I feel you're near
I feel you moving
But you never appear

Chasing shadows
Chasing something I can't see
Chasing shadows
Will I ever be free
Chasing shadows
Enter to take this pain away
Chasing shadows
I'm just a victim of the night
The night

Hooked in darkness
You play at your game
I hear you breathing
Call at your name
Closer, closer, I feel you so near
You're just a shadow
But you never appear

Chasing shadows
Chasing something I can't see
Chasing shadows
Will I ever be free
Chasing shadows
Enter to take this pain away
Chasing shadows
Another victim of the night
The night

Shadows in the night

Seen from the darkness
Deep in the night
I know you're here
You're nowhere in sight
On my shoulder
I know you are near
I feel you moving
Will you ever appear

I'm chasing something I can't see
Will I ever be free
Shadows in the night

On the Rebound

ON THE REBOUND

On the rebound, on the rebound 
That's how you felt for me
That's how you changed my life
You cut me like a knife

On the rebound, on the rebound 
You came, you saw, you took
It only took one look 
And lady, I was hooked

On the rebound - it's a replay ...

Your love was on the rebound
On the rebound 
You came and took my soul
You came and left a hole
Where your love used to be

On the rebound, on the rebound 
You like to drown in your tears
And after all these years
You give your pain to me

On the rebound - you came to repay
On the rebound -  to set you free
On the rebound -  to pray for me
Your love was on the rebound

You came to me
To set you free
To pray for me
It's a replay
You came to repay
It's a replay
To set you free
Just a replay
Your love was
Just a replay

Hot Night in a Cold Town

HOT NIGHT IN A COLD TOWN

Sonny's out strolling, ambling slowly
Washed in amber street lights
A Mexican wind blows in
Takin' ahold of Angelina's hair
And her halo
Motors running, muffling the sound
Of the street talk
A big deal's goin' down

In another hot night
In a cold town
Got yourself a hot night
In a cold town

Johnny's got spare change
in his pocket
A ring and a watch
To hock for a sweet ride
A one way ticket
Hidden in his shoe
These last few hours
He says he'll spend with you
He's leavin' home without a trace
No forwarding address
He'll never have to face another

Hot night
In a cold town
Got yourself a hot night
In a cold town

Well, the losers and the groovers
And the corner boys
Are hangin' around
Runnin' in and out of doorways
Up and down the stairways
Stray dogs headed for the pound

In another
Hot night in a cold town
Got you, got yourself a
Hot night in a cold, cold town
Cold town

It's just another hot night
In a cold town

Such a cold town

Running all Night (With the Lion)

I've been waiting for my lady
One hour - she finally came
She's been walking by my table
And I'm thinking
What's this viscious game
To be the only one who's waiting
To play that white witches game
And I knew that she was waiting
To cut loose on the town and meet
Somebody new for a change

When you're running
All night with the lion
Running all night with the lion...

I may not recall exactly
Her eyes can hurt as seen now
She was sitting at my table
And I'm making out like a clown
Oh, she'll make me very happy
When she showed her fallen again
And I knew that she was waiting
To cut loose on the town and meet
Somebody new for a change

Rock'n'rollin' ladies
Good life to the games you can't win
She picked right up my table
Till it's time to go in
There's got to be something heavy
If only you'd show me a sign
When something said
She was waiting
To cut loose on the town and meet
Somebody new for a change

That's the Way It Is

THAT'S THE WAY THAT IT IS

I've been thinking about
What you said last night
And for all your fine words
You still don't have it right

'Cause that's the way that it is
And you won't ever change
You can scream at me
But the powers that be
Won't ever hear your voice
'Cause they're lost
In their own importance
No, they'll never hear your voice

'Cause that's the way that it is
And you won't ever change it

I've heard all your stories
Of how the few can be strong
And how you'll fight to the end
Just to prove me wrong

'Cause that's the way that you are
And you won't ever change it
But don't come cryin' to me
If your fanciful schemes
Don't turn out like you planned
'Cause you're chasin'
After something
That keeps slippin'
Through your hand

That's the way that it is
And you won't change it

Prisoner

Time has come to say goodbye
To the broken memories
They're locked inside like prisoners
In a place that no-one sees

Stayed up late with a friend of mine
Southern Comfort till dawn
We talked about the things of love
Shoud've known from
The start you arrived

I'm just a prisoner
Don't wanna lock myself away
Prisoner - I get so lonely, lonely
I'm a prisoner
Just when do you think love will stay
It walks right out on you - out on you

Tired blood runs through my veins
But I can't get no sleep
You lock my heart
And whisper the walls
This place I've got to leave

I'm a prisoner
Don't wanna lock myself away
Prisoner - I get so lonely, lonely
I'm a prisoner
Just when do you think love will stay
It walks right out on you - out on you

The sky is crying, it's raining
Like the storm in my heart
There ain't no music playing
'Cause I'm leaving, leaving

Won't somebody set me free
Take me away from this misery
I get so lonely
I get so lonely, lonely, lonely
Won't somebody set me free
Please, please, set me free

Hot Persuasion

HOT PERSUASION

You know you light my candle
You know you load my gun
You're way too hot to handle
There's nothing we ain't done

Give me your love
Give me that hot persuasion
I can't get enough
Give me that hot persuasion

Give it to me!

I'm full of hot persuasion
You face me upside down
A love for all occasions
You won't catch me fooling aroung

Give me your love
Give me that hot persuasion
I can't, can't get enough
Give me that hot persuasion

I need to know you're near me
I need you by my side
You keep me tiger ready
You keep me up all night

Give me your love
Give me that hot persuasion
Oh, can't get enough
Give me that hot persuasion

Give me your hot persuasion
I can't get enough, get enough
I've done hot persuasion

Sell Your Soul

SELL YOUR SOUL

I got the sound that's still the reason
I got the sound good and right
I've spent my life with rock'n'roll
I wouldn't tell a lie
But if you want to touch the freedom
Just let the music take you whole
I'm possessed by rock'n'roll
There's a thunder
See it and wonder
Had to play the game
And change it

You know we're gonna live forever
You know we're never gonna die
You see it's written
Across the sky tonight
I only tell you why
Because it's been going on
It's ancient
We got a spotlight just for you
Im possessed by rock'n'roll
Hear me callling, stars are falling
Taking me away

Stand up - shout it out
I'm possessed by rock 'n' roll
Stand up - shout it out
Sell your soul
Stand up - shout it out
Let the music take you whole
Stand up - shout it out
Rock 'n' roll

Can't you feel we're getting stronger
Getting stronger every day
There ain't nothing gonna stop us
Oh, there ain't no way
It's like a rolling god of thunder
You know it's never gonna stop
You know it's gonna drag you under
See me soaring
Thunders roaring
Things afraid again

I got the sound that's still the reason
I got the sound good and right
I've spent my life with rock'n'roll
Oh no, would I lie
But if you want to touch the freedom
Just let the music take you whole
I'm possessed by rock'n'roll
There's a thunder
See it and wonder
Had to play the game
And change it

It's gonna drag you under
Gonna take you whole
And your soul
You gotta shout, shout, shout it out

Think It Over

THINK IT OVER

I've had all I can take
I've taken just too much
I've made a big mistake
That put me out of touch
I don't think I can face
Another single day
Without your company
To take this pain away

So many tears ago
It's then you walked away
It could've been the end
But I knew better
I had to tell myself
There'll be another day
She wants to go to ???
But don't you know

Can't you see
There's a chance for you and me
Think it over
Don't believe
In the things that may not be
Think it over

Why don't you think it over

Forgetting the result
I can't give it in
Whispers startle you
But it's not over
You have to face the truth
I'm still in love with you
I have to make you see
But it's not over

Why don't you think about it, babe
