1. RELEVATION DAY

(Instrumental)


2. UNDER BLUE SKIES

Who'll be a beggar and who'll be a queen
Who'll be a coward and who a Marine
Who'll be a poor man and who a millionaire
Who'll be a man in despair

Under blue skies - we all play the game
But in God's eyes - we are all the same

Who'll be a Nazi and who'll be a Jew
Who'll be a White man and who'll die like a Sioux
Who'll be the president of the US of A
Who'll be a sinner or saint - I just say

Under blue skies - we all live in chains
But in God's eyes - we remain the same


3. STRICKE BACK

Livin' day by day
Your conscience's far beyond of red alert
Bad turns into good
And justice is not more than just a word

Showtime for the Great Pretender
Selling you his lies
He won't be your soul defender The day - you gonna die

Strike back - set your heart on fire
The devil is a liar
Strike back - raise a smile in heaven
Fighting fire with fire - Strike back
Strike back

Hungry children die
And you go on a diet with champagne
Donations cut your tax
But they don't ease the cryin' mother's pain
Ain't that insane

Welcome Mr. Satisfaction
Welcome Mr. Greed
He won't give you soul protection
Now - you gotta fight - alright


4. DOWN TO ATLANTA

I met you down at Froggy's bar
You were selling drinks to me
But the way you smiled and the way you talked
Was selling more to me

There oughta be a law against the way you look
'Cause you're drivin' me insane
There oughta be a law against the way you kiss
And the way you play your games

You're from Atlanta - Georgia
And Cindy was your name
Atlanta - Georgia
The eye of a hurricane

Take me down to Atlanta
Take me down little queen
Take me way down to Georgia
Take me down southern dream
My little Dixie queen

Girl you got me shakin
Like a rollercoaster ride
I'm feeling high explosive
Like a keg of dynamite

There oughta be a law against the South
Raisin' southern girls like you
There oughta be a law against the law
Ain't nothin' I can do

Take me down to Atlanta
Take me down little queen
Take me way down to Georgia
Take me down southern dream

You're from Atlanta - Georgia
And Cindy was your name
Atlanta - Georgia
The eye of a hurricane

Take me down to Atlanta
Take me down little queen
Take me way down to Georgia
Take me down southern dream


5. SOUTHERN WINDS

Dreamin' by the fire
At the Gulf of Mexico
Somebody's playin' a lovesong
With a six string homesick tone

Memories of summer
The first time we made love
And a promise left unspoken
I saw in a shooting star

The Southern wind was blowin'
As if he wants to say
The words I whispered in my hear
Only yesterday

You're my only one - my risin' sun
You're the air I wanna breathe
Girl you're everything I need
My shining star - that's what you are
And as long my heart will beat
You'll be everything - everything I need

The fire is still burning
I was humming to the song
Couldn't think of all the words
So I made them up my own

Like a secret door that opens
These words just set me free
And the promise left unspoken
Was the owner of the key

Oh Southern wind keep blowin'
Please carry me back home
There's somebody who is waiting
And I've gotta let her know

You're my only one - my risin' sun
You're the air I wanna breathe
Girl you're everything I need
My shining star - that's what you are
And as long my heart will beat
You'll be everything - everything I need

And when Southern Winds are blowin'
they might even bring some rain
but the promise left unspoken
will always be the same


6. GOOD TIME ROCK'N'ROLL

Big guitars and big bad drums
Mr. DJ please gimme some
But I don't want no House - 'nd no Rap
And I don't dig your Techno crap
Every night and every day

I just dig that good time Rock'n'Roll
With a whole lotta love and a whole lotta soul

So come on let's go - I just wanna rock it
Come on let's go - I never wanna stop it
So come on - come on - come on
Keep on rockin'
So come on let's go - I can't get enough
Come on let's go - live, loud and rough
So come on - come on - come on
Keep on rockin' - come on and rock

I don't dig those drum machines
That girlie stuff so lean and clean

Mercy mercy radio
I can't kill your dog and pony shows
Satisfy my hungry soul
With some good time Rock'n'Roll

So come on let's go - I just wanna rock it
Come on let's go - I never wanna stop it
So come on - come on - come on
Keep on rockin'
So come on let's go - I can't get enough
Come on let's go - live, loud and rough
So come on - come on - come on
Keep on rockin' - come on and rock


7. UNTIL THE LAST GOODBYE

It's so hard
To write another lovesong girl
It's so hard
It's all been said and sung before

Could this - be love
Are you the one I was dreaming of
Words can't describe
What my heart's tryin' to say

Until the last good-bye
I'll be by your side
Anytime - day and night
Until the last good-bye
I'll kiss you good night
Until our last good-bye

I would lie
Pretending it don't mean that much
I would lie
If I would say I don't need your touch

I feel bad - without you - I can't hide
These moments of truth
I never knew love - before I knew you

Until the last good-bye
I'll be by your side
Anytime - day and night
Until the last good-bye
I'll kiss you good night
Until our last good-bye

If it can last for a moment
It can last a thousand years
I'll be your bread and your water
And the one to dry your tears
Until our last good-bye

Until the last good-bye
I'll be by your side
Anytime - day and night
Until the last good-bye
I'll kiss you good night
Until our last good-bye


8. DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH

Some dig for gold - 'til they get old
Though they hold a treasure
Some dig down deep - playin' for keeps
I'm so glad that I found you

I might not be the diamond
You had in mind to find
And you are not that shiny little stone
But you get what you see
And I will guarantee
Rough edges with a lifetime warrantee

We are - like diamonds in the rough
You and I - going well together
We believe - when everyone falls off
Holding on - diamonds are forever
Diamonds in the rough

Some look for love - but get lost in lust
Out here in the jungle
Some hearts ignite - for Mr. Right
Lookin' for Miss Perfect

I might not be the rich man
Who paves your way with gold
And you are not the daughter of a queen
Between love and a fight
We try to get it right
Like magnetism - we attract each other

We are - like diamonds in the rough
You and I - going well together
We believe - when everyone falls off
Holding on - diamonds are forever
Diamonds in the rough

We are - like diamonds in the rough
You and I - going well together
We believe - when everyone falls off
Holding on - diamonds are forever
Diamonds in the rough


9. DAMN YOU

You did your homework
And you smell like a rose
I was a fool to believe you
You told me I was - all you'd ever need
I found that nothing is true

I'm cryin' in the night
I'm branded deep inside
No more final try
Enough is enough
I'm through with your love

Damn you - I don't want it no more
Damn you - it's over
Damn you - and don't you knock on my door
Damn you - Damn you - Damn you

No more excuses
No other pack of lies
'Cause you've been caught red handed
Won't show no mercy
On your copycat crimes

Don't want you here to stay
Another second of a day
Nothin' left to say
Enough is enough - I'm all out of love

Damn you - I don't want it no more
Damn you - it's over
Damn you - and don't you knock on my door
Damn you - Damn you - Damn you

You were playin' games with my heart
Deceivin' me - and cheatin' me
Almost tore it all apart
But finally I'm free

Damn you - I don't want it no more
Damn you - it's over
Damn you - and don't you knock on my door
Damn you - damn you - damn you


10. ANYTIME YOU CRY

I was lookin' for answers
Deep down inside
The closest that I've got
Was a desperate sigh

Words don't prove nothing
But kisses don't lie
Every single breath I
Take - tells me why

I didn't mean to want you so bad
I didn't mean to care so much
The way I care and want you
Now is dangerous - dangerous

Anytime you cry
I feel down down down down
Anytime you smile - I feel high
Anytime we kiss
I feel love love love love
Anytime we touch - I could fly - anytime

I was counting seconds
'Til you came home from work
Anyhow my heart was on alert
Red alert

It didn't make me feel better
When I tried to shake it off
I was afraid to believe
This could be love

I didn't mean to miss you so bad
I didn't mean to need you so much
The way I need and miss you
Now is dangerous so dangerous

Anytime you cry
I feel down down down down
Anytime you smile - I feel high
Anytime we kiss I feel
Love love love love
Anytime we touch - I could fly - anytime

Anytime you smile - Anytime you cry
Anytime you smile I feel high


11. TOO MUCH HOLLYWOOD

Well I don't miss your Scarlet kiss
'Cause I put you on my drop dead list
I couldn't stand it no longer
You wrapped your little lies so fine
Like in a Hitchcock storyline
Where the good guy's always stronger

Girl I've seen that movie
Didn't know you wrote the script

Bad girl - you're no good
'Cause you're too much Hollywood
Oh - you're just smoke without a fire
Bad girl - this time
I won't waste my Valentine
Oh - I was hungry with desire

I was badly cast in your love affair
I had the minor role of Mr. Unaware
The start of shooting was dynamite
But the happy end
Got out of sight
And out of copyright

Based on the novel of a bad girl
I just take this Golden Globe for me yeah

Bad girl - you're no good
'cause you're too much Hollywood
Oh - you're just smoke without a fire
Bad girl - this time
I won't waste my Valentine
Oh - I was hungry with desire

All you did and said
Is still on screen in my head
But finally my heart decided
I don't watch that movie anymore
Like I did before - no


12. I NEED YOU

I wish that you could read my mind
And see the words I hide
Sometimes a man's not man enough
'cause he's too full of pride

I tried to live without you
I didn't make it a day
Without your love and you
Let me say

I wanna lay my arms around you
And tell you I love you
Just like the roses need the water
Baby I need you - baby I need you

You've got a way to make me feel
Like no one else before
I watch you sleep and wonder why
I closed an open door

I tried to live without you
I tried to make believe
That I don't care about you and me

I wanna lay my arms around you
And tell you I love you
Just like the roses need the water
Baby I need you - baby I need you

I wanna lay my arms around you
And tell you I love you
Just like the roses need the water
Baby I need you - baby I need you


13. ANGEL IN WHITE

Just like an angel you were falling from the sky
It was some kind of magic in your eyes
You must have been Heaven sent
Yeah it's like a dream come true
I've been waiting for someone just like you

It feels like the first time though I've been in love before
But you've got me longing, longing for more, yeah

Angel in white
Don't you know you set my heart on fire
Angel in white
Don't you know I'm burning for you

Too many heartaches, too much sorrow, too much pain
It was nearly driving me insane, oh yeah
It's a magical mystery. must have come from high above
It's a deadly case of hopeless love

Feels like the first time,
Just the way you're holding me tight
We're gonna count the stars tonight, tonight, whoa

Angel in white
Don't you know you set my heart on fire
Angel in white
Don't you know I'm burning for you

Angel in white
Hold me now and feel my deep desire
Angel in white
Don't you know I'm burning for you

Angel in white
Don't you know you set my heart on fire
Angel in white
Don't you know I'm burning for you

Angel in white
Don't you know you set my heart on fire
Angel in white
Don't you know I'm burning for you
