1. 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

Too scared to run
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

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


2. 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

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're near
I feel you moving
Will you ever appear


3. 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


4. HOT NIGHT IN THE COLD TOWN

Sonny's out strollin', amblin' slowly
Washed in amber street lights
Mexican wind blows in
Taking hold of Angelina's hair
And her halo
Motors runnin', mufflin' the sound
Of the streets
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 them with you
He's leaving home without a trace
No forwarding address
He'll never know
How to face another

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

Hot night in a cold town
Got yourself a
Hot night in a cold town
It's just another hot night
In a cold town


5. 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 she was waiting
To cut loose on the town and meet
Somebody new for a change

Rock 'n' rolling 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 and meet
Somebody new for a change


6. 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
Now I've heard all your stories
Of how the few can be strong
How you'll fight to the end
Just to prove me wrong
'Cause that's the way that it is
And you won't ever change it
So don't come cryin' to me
If your fanciful schemes
Don't turn out like you planned
'Cause you're chasing
After something
That keeps slipping
Through your hand


7. 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

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


8. 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

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

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


9. 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

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
I'm 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 see we're getting stronger
Getting stronger every day
There ain't nothing gonna stop us
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


10. 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 a companion
To take this pain away

So many tears ago
It's then you walked away
It could've been the end
But I knew babe
I had to tell myself
There'll be another day
She wants to go to glench
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
I got to think it over

Forgetting the result
I can't give it in
Whisper 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

I got to think about it baby


11. TIN SOLDIER [Bonustrack]

I am the little tin soldier
That wants to jump into your fire
You, oh, look in your eye
A dream passing by in the skies

I don't understand
All I need is to treat me like a man
I ain't no child, take me like I am

I've got some love that belongs to you
I'll do anything that you want me to
I'll sing any song that you want me
To sing to you

All I need is your whispered hello
Smile smelting the snow
Nothing heard
Your eyes, oh, deeper than time
I see a love that won't
Rhyme without words
So now bless my way
I need help to show me things to say
Give me your love
Before mine breaks away

I don't need no aggrevation
I just got to make you
I just got to make you understand

I just wan't some reaction
Someone to give me satisfaction
I love you


12. SON OF A BITCH [Bonustrack]

Hear the son of the bitch
He's the son of a fool
Sign of the times
No exception against the rule
He's down on his luck
He's down on his knees
Cut really deep
He knows how to bleed

Hear the son of the dark
You'll see him run with the pack
He won't look you in the eyes
He'll stab you in the back
The son of the dark
Only runs with the pack
He'll take your life
He won't look back

Son of a - he's a son of a bitch
He's a son of a - he's a son of a bitch

Hear the woman of the streets
She never learned how to cry
She'll spread her wings
He'll never fly
Woman of the night
She hangs like a bat
She'll scratch at your eyes
Fight like a cat

Hear the lost, hear the lonely
Hear the fool, that won't get to see
Hear the lost, hear the lonely
And don't pity me, don't pity me

Son of the bitch
He's a son of a - Oh, the son of a bitch

Listen to the son of the poor
The son of the rich
The son of the dark
The son of the bitch
Woman of the night
Hangs like a bat
She'll scratch at your eyes
She fights like a cat

Hear the son of the bitch
He's the son of a fool
A sign of the times
No exception against the rule
Down on his luck
Down on his knees
Cut really deep
So he knows how to bleed

He's a sign of the times
He's the son of a, son of a... bitch
The son of a bitch
