DON'T LOOK BACK

Sometimes I remember my life The wheels been spinning so long So many years have passed me by And the feelings are still running oh so strong Now something new is here I'm gonna fly and spread my wings And still the power, goes, on and on Don't look back- Don't look back Don't you ever, now or never, look back Don't look back- Don't look back Don't you ever- never look back Day after day, night after night Climbing into a new day And now I think I've found my sight To go on and never turn away Now something new... Don't look back- Don't look back Don't you ever, now or never, look back Don't look back- Don't look back now or never- Don't you ever look back SOLO I'm gonna fly and spread my wings cause still the power goes on and on Don't look back...

BREAK THE RULES

Everything is wrong, yet they all deny it But the time will come, when they can't hide it Somebody says hey man- what's up with you I say "just make way" cause I'm sick of you Sick 'n tired of no good two faced liars Buck here- buck there, that's their sole desire Leaders always put your life in fear I don't wanna see the world disappear You got to burn it up- burn it up tonight Cause the time has come for us- to put it right You gotta break the rules, so keep the aces high Break the rules- break the rules Burn 'em down with fire No good thinking you don't have the power Cause it's coming soon it's gonna be our finest hour All I do is smile because I've been thru this before I know just how to play this game- I'm kicking down your door You got to burn it up- burn it up tonight... You gotta break the rules, so keep the aces high Break the rules- break the rules Burn 'em down with fire You gotta break the rules, so keep the aces high Break the rules- break the rules Burn 'em down with fire SOLO You gotta break the rules...

WE'RE HISTORY

You look to me for some outstanding meaning You got the devil in your eyes and nothing in your soul If you think I'm gonna sell myself, then you must be dreaming There's no way, I'm gonna fall into your hole You never seem to help me when I'm bleeding You gotta knife for a tongue and you're tearing at my heart I thought you were a friend, but in truth you never liked me You lied and cheated us from the start You are wrong, love doesn't last forever You're nothing new there is no mystery Now you're gone you thought you were so clever You and me are now history, we're history... SOLO I don't like your face I don't like your eyes I don't like your lips, I hate your lies This time's the last time it's goodbye time You are wrong, love doesn't last forever You're nothing new there is no mystery Now you're gone you thought you were so clever You and me are now history, we're history... We're history, we're history I don't need you and I don't care We're history, we're history...

PAINTED LOVE

She's been around, knows how to make you think You're in a world of innocence She'll make you moan- make you moan and groan Then spit you out and eat your bones She sits around and thinks about those lies It really makes her wonder Chasing history- her world of ecstasy A life of rape and plunder Welcome to the rooms of your desire Painted Love- Painted Love Take a ride and explore inside Painted Love- Painted Love She knows how to make you scream and shout You know she loves to get it out The fascination of a fuckin' lie It's just a case of do or die She sits around and thinks... Welcome to the rooms of your desire Painted Love- Painted Love Reaching out- breaking out Painted Love- Painted Love Take a ride, explore inside Painted Love- Painted Love Reaching out- breaking out Painted Love- Painted Love SOLO She sits around and thinks... Welcome to the rooms....

MEAN MACHINE

The horror of a mad dog Is chilling my blood in my brains The lights disappearing The cloud getting pregnant with rain There's a rumor going round that The master of darkness will come They say he'll come from the sky And there's nothing we can do There'll be no place to hide He's coming for me- he's coming for you! Somewhere in time Where creatures of the night never sleep Lying and waiting, growing stronger Planning our final defeat They say he'll come from the sky... Mean Machine Comes from the sky Stake your claims if you want to survive Mean Machine Comes from the sky Don't try to run if you don't want to die Mean machine Comes from the sky Stake your claims if you want to survive SOLO Mean Machine Comes from the sky...

DIRTY BOYS

Bad boys on the run tonight There's streaming energy The future holds retreat or victory Strollin' through the neon light You get no charity Looking for a fight- out on the run They're never gonna win Unless the system is to burn They're tearing our world apart Because, they never wanna learn Dirty boys always on the run Until six o'clock in the morning Dirty boys always having fun Never get them out of my mind Windows closed and doorways shut There's trouble in the streets Another girl gets crazy from the heat Heavy current loads the air Headgames all around Tidal waves of lust and moaning sounds There never gonna win... Dirty boys always on the run Until six o'clock in the morning Dirty boys always having fun Never get them out of my mind Dirty boys always on the run Never get them out of my mind SOLO They're tearing our world apart Because they never wanna learn Bad boys on the run tonight Burning up the streets The future holds retreat or victory Heavy current loads the air- you get no charity They're looking for a fight, this ain't no place to be Dirty Boys...

STREETS ON FIRE

Standin' in the night, I don't know just somewhere And I'm feeling cold inside about what I see Give 'em all guns, there's nothin' left- for losers Time is running out so secretly This ain't no paradise The nightmare's on it's way Insanity appears- in their eyes Streets on fire- ready or not Will the goodtimes return- no way! Streets on fire- ready or not Will we ever learn- no way! Echoing sounds of thunder make me shiver Battlefields turn to wasteland- no one wins The ghost of terror creeping, through the cities And someone says it's a holy war This ain't no paradise... Streets on fire- ready or not... SOLO Humans will always fight The same shit everywhere East or west, the same desires Will always haunt the earth SOLO Streets on fire- ready or not...

LOST PASSION

Welcome hello, please take your seat We leave now for a trip- in hell Now we can start especially for you- join us now! Shattered dreams, in shattered faces Crawling off the stage Forgotten heroes lost their passion, many years ago Time after time in your life You're burning your world of illusions Tearing your conscience apart Lost Passion Now you can see, you can see what it means To come to a world of lies, all such lies Think about your destiny- the love you found Was it just a dream, just a dream Shattered dreams, in shattered faces... Time after time in your life You're burning your world of illusions Tearing your conscience apart Lost Passion- Lost Passion Time after time in your life You're burning your world of illusions Tearing your conscience apart Lost Passion- Lost Passion- Lost Passion SOLO Time after time in your life...

SWEET LITTLE CHILD

Darkness- and yet another day slips away So lonely- life's just like an empty room Where is the answer, when our love was so sweet I wish I could hold you tonight But we only came close in my dreams Sweet little child Give me your answer Some broken hearts They'd die for that answer To try to get back, back to the past to break free Tell me how can I find your sunshine again Truth is well- you know that better than me I wish I could hold you tonight But we only came close in my dreams Sweet little child Give me your answer Some broken hearts They'd die for that answer To try to get back, back to the past to break free, Sweet little child Give me your answer Some broken hearts They'd die for that answer To try to get back, back to the past to break free SOLO You know some broken hearts, would die for that answer Sweet little child Give me your answer

CATCH MY FALL

I wake up feeling lost without you And the pain reminds me that I'm all alone Those dreams we had, are now a nightmare I feel just like a dog without a bone Now is now and then was then But I can't get used to being without you It's a brand-new start and now I know that I should've But I never ever thought I'd miss your eyes "say" here we go again All I need is you tonight Why don't you call All I need is you tonight To catch my fall I'd die for you over and over again But I guess you've heard it all before You say times have changed, changed your ways But your absence makes me need you more and more It's a brand-new start and now I know that I should've Loved you then... All I need is you tonight Why don't you call All I need is you tonight To catch my fall All I need is you tonight Why don't you call All I need is you tonight To catch my fall- that's all SOLO All I need is you tonight...

STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU
