Les paroles

1. WE WERE JUST STARTIN' OUT ON A DREAM

Young enough to believe
Everyone was on our side,
And no one would deceive
But sometimes the truth gets served on a knife,
You gotta stand up and fight
We turned to each other and kicked it in gear
To earn our rock 'n' roll right

Whoa-oh - in a world full of heartache,
Jealousy wears a friendly face
Whoa-oh - we can hold on,
You can't keep a fast car out of the race

[Chorus]:
Give it all you got, rev it up, rev it up
Push it to the top, rev it up, rev it up
If anyone tries to hold you back,
Don't let 'em run you off the track
Give it all you got, rev it up

Burnin' with the hope of the innocent,
Ready to own tomorrow
We were gonna set the nights on fire,
But doubt pierced like an arrow

Whoa-oh - when no one's in your corner
Dig down deep and you'll find your pride
Whoa-oh - floor it all the way,
What's behind the wheel can't be denied

[Chorus]

Give it all you got, rev it up, rev it up
Push it to the top, rev it up, rev it up
If anyone tries to hold you back,
Don't let 'em run you off the track
Give it all you got, rev it up

Every fighter takes a fall,
But don't given tryin'
Sometimes you fly, sometimes you crawl,
One step at a time

(Solo)

Whooh-oh - Hold on tighter,
When the ride gets a little rough
Don't give in, don't give up


[Chorus]

Give it all you got, rev it up, rev it up
Push it to the top, rev it up, rev it up
If anyone tries to hold you back,
Don't let 'em run you off the track
Give it all you got, rev it up
Rev it up, rev it up

Rev it up, rev it up, rev it up ...


2. HOW MUCH LOVE

You're in the corner, turning your back, you're runnin' away again
The more I give you, the less that you take, tell me, where is it gonna end?
Whoah-oh - I can see you've felt some pain
Whoah-oh - I know you've been hurt before
Whoah-oh - But I swear you won't get hurt no more - tell me

[Chorus]

How much love is it gonna take, to prove I'm not another heartache
Do you begin to let your heart give in, how much love is it gonna take

I'm reachin' for you, gettin' so close, but you're always a step away
I wanna touch you 'n give my love, what is it gonna take
Whoah-oh - I can see it in your eyes
Whoah-oh - that you want to let me in
Whoah-oh - But you're scared that you'll get hurt again - tell me

[Chorus]

How much love is it gonna take, to prove I'm not another heartache
Do you begin to let your heart give in, how much love is it gonna take

I've been searchin' for an answer, oooh tell me what it's gonna be

(Solo)

[Chorus]

How much love is it gonna take, to prove I'm not another heartache
Do you begin to let your heart give in, how much love …
How much love is it gonna take, to prove I'm not another heartache
Do you begin to let your heart give in, how much love

How much love !
Is is gonna take (X 2)

I can see it in your eyes
Come on baby
Come on let me in …


3. LOVE IS A KILLER

Only a fool believes
It's better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all
But I don't wanna take that fall
It's a long long long way down

I'm hurt
Love struck me down again
Enticed me in and pulled the pin
Blew my tender heart sky high
Now in my pain I'm asking why
As I'm crying
Should I give it my last try
Or I say goodbye

[Chorus]

Love is a killer
A homicidal fiend
Love is a killer
It'll be the death of me
I got a target on my back
For a cupid dressed in black
Love is a killer
It's killing me

Love so sweetly backoning
I've seen your face
Called your name
I tasted tears you cried
Lived in shadows in my mind
Frozen here in time
Don't leave me here to die

[Chorus]

Love is a killer
A homicidal fiend
Love is a killer
It'll be the death of me
I've got a target on my back
For a cupid dressed in black
Love is a killer
It's killing me

Solo

You fascinate and yet frustrate
Demand so much of me,yeah
I had enough
It's tearing me up inside
Cross my heart hope to survive
You got a smoking gun
Well don't shoot me love

[Chorus]

No, you're a killer
A homicidal fiend
Love is a killer
It'll be the death of me
I've got a target on my back
For a cupid dressed in black
Love is a killer
Love is a killer (X 2)
I've got a target in my back
For a cupid dressed in black
Love is a killer
It's killing me …


4. NOT A MINUTE TO SOON

I was pretending it was easy alone
I built a fortress to keep out the unknown
Surrounded myself with walls of rejection
Trapped in the dungeon for my protection
Your smile came shinin' through, so pure I knew

[Chorus]

Not a minute too soon, your love came through for me
You are the water in my desert
Not a minute too soon, your love got through to me
You rescued me just in the nick of time

Time after time I threw my heart away, my faith was fading fast day after day
I had enough of giving in
I couldn't lay down my pride so love just pushed me aside
Your kisses washed away my thirst, every touch felt like the first

[Chorus]

Not a minute too soon, your love came through for me
You are the water in my desert
Not a minute too soon, your love got through to me
You rescued me just in the nick of time

In this angry world, I thought loneliness would shelter me
My broken spirit cried in vain, till you set me free

(Solo)

Your kisses washed away my thirst, every touch feels just like the first

[Chorus]

Not a minute too soon, your love came through for me
You are the water in my desert
Not a minute too soon, your love got through to me
You rescued me just in the nick of time
Not a minute too soon, your love came through for me
You are the water, yeah you are the water
(Not a minute to soon)
Your love got through to me
You rescued me just in the nick of time
Not a minute too soon
(Not a minute too soon)
You are the water in my desert
(Not a minute too soon)
You know your love came through for me
Your love got through to me
(Not a minute too soon)
I want you to rock me
(Not a minute too soon)
I wanna be the one
(Not a minute too soon) …


5. STREETS IN PARADISE

Pretty people pretty cars
Living in the lap of luxury
But this precious fantasy
Seems so close when it's so far from me
Tell me where to get in line
Show me how to change my luck this time

[Chorus]

People turn their backs on you
On the streets in paradise
When you're not the chosen few
It's hot as hell and cold as ice
Everyday's another fight
Living on the streets in paradise

Come on

All that glitters isn't gold
Promises and dreams can get so old
I know what this game's about
People chew you up and spit you out
I need some kind of a sign
Can't seem to get into this dream of mine

[Chorus]

People turn their backs on you
On the streets in paradise
When you're not the chosen few
It's hot as hell and cold as ice
Everyday's another fight
Living on the streets in paradise

There ain't no sacrifice
That I won't make i'll pay the price
Oh no I won't think twice
Nothing comes cheap in paradise

Solo

Tell me where to get in line
Can't seem to get into this dream of mine

[Chorus]

People turn their backs on you
On the streets in paradise
When you're not the chosen few
It's hot as hell and cold as ice
Everyday's another fight
Living on the streets in paradise
(People turn their backs on you)
(When you're not the chosen few)
It's hot as hell and cold as ice
(Everyday's another fight)
Living on the streets in paradise
Nanananananana (X 6)


6. HARD 16

Hard 16!

Daddy didn't care, mama wasn't there, Jenny slammed the door to her heart
Packed a suitcase of anger, no one tried to save her
She headed for the city that shines in the dark
But the lights fade away, when you're young on the streets, without a friend
Jenny learned to survive, put a price on the nights that never end

[Chorus]

She's hard 16, soft to the touch, but she's seen too much
She's hard 16, will her soul run dry by 17?

The face of innocence doesn't stand a chance
Between the losers, the takers, the lost
So Jenny never cried, locked her pain inside
She's trapped in a time bomb ready to blow
There will come a day when the mirror reveals a total stranger
Another lonely runaway in a living hell

[Chorus]

She's turning hard 16, soft to the touch, but she's seen too much
She's hard 16, will her soul run dry
Jenny, please come home - please come home
You've got so much to give, so much life to live, so come home

(Solo)

[Chorus]

She's hard 16, soft to the touch, but she's seen too much
She's hard 16, will her soul run dry - 16!
Hard 16, soft to the touch, but she's seen too much
Hard 16, will her soul run dry
Hard 16 - her daddy didn't care, her mama wasn't there
Hard 16, will her soul run dry
Hard 16, soft to the touch, but she's seen too much
Hard 16, will her soul run dry by 17?


7. BAD REPUTATION

You're always on the edge,
But you can never find a thrill
Fame and fortune's left you hungry still
You win young innocence with sly seduction
Indulgence paves the road to your destruction

What do you believe in
And why do they believe in you?

[Chorus]

You got a bad reputation,
You're a wild sensation
Your ego's on the front line
And your pride's on stage
You got a bad reputation with no hesitation
Will you take the young ones with you
On your way down to the grave yeah?

You're walking a thin line,
But you take no advice
You got all the answers,
You don't need no compromise
You sure convinced us all
That you're a world class sinner
You're running in a race,
Where there's never any winners

What do you believe in
And what do people see in you?

[Chorus]

You got a bad reputation,
You're a wild sensation
Your ego's on the front line
And your pride's on stage
You got a bad reputation with no hesitation
Will you take the young ones with you
On your way down to the grave yeah?

Ain't nothing new about what you're going through, no
It's the same old theme, of the bad boy scene
You're in control, but your hands aren't on the wheel
I bet we'll see you at the crossroads trying to make a deal!
But that ain't no deal, it's a long way down

(Solo)

[Chorus]

You got a bad reputation,
You're a wild sensation
Your ego's on the front line
And your pride's on stage
You got a bad reputation you got no hesitation
Will you take the young ones with you
On your way down to the grave
Bad reputation
You're a wild sensation
Your ego's on the front line
And your pride's on stage
You got a bad reputation you got no hesitation
Taking the young ones with you
On your way down to the grave
(Bad reputation)
(Wild sensation)
You got a bad reputation
(Bad reputation)
(Wild sensation)
Ego's on the front line
And your pride's on stage
You got a bad reputation
You're a wild sensation
(Bad reputation)
(Wild sensation)


8. FALLEN HERO

They called him crazy on the streets,
Young and angry, one bad seed
He wore the colors of his call,
He'd be the baddest of them all

Shoot out came down in a police raid
By a Smith & Wesson .38 at 17 he met his fate

[Chorus]

Fallen hero, what were you trying to prove ?
Fallen hero, all you got was front page news
It's too late, tough break, read your epitaph
Fallen hero, how many others will follow in your path?

He had a lady, now she cries alone
It would come to this, she's always known
She remembers how he used to say,
There ain't no future anyway

Sirens echo in the night,
Now his name is the battle cry
Of another boy who lives to die

[Chorus]

Fallen hero, what were you trying to prove ?
Fallen hero, all you got was front page news
It's too late, tough break, read your epitaph
Fallen hero, how many others will follow in your path?

And so the story lives on of how his glory was won
And no lesson ever learned of the tragedies to come

(Solo)

Sirens echo in the night,
Now his name is the battle cry
Of another boy who lives to die


[Chorus]

Fallen hero, what were you trying to prove ?
Fallen hero, all you got was front page news
It's too late, tough break, read your epitaph
Fallen hero, how many others will follow yeah
(Fallen hero)
Just what were you trying to prove ?
(Fallen hero)
All you got was front page news
It's too late, tough break, read your epitaph
(Fallen hero)
How many others
(Fallen hero)
How did she know
(Fallen hero)
Now his name is the battle cry
(Fallen hero)
How did she know
(Fallen hero)


9. ONLY A HEARTBEAT AWAY

The scene is set, we play the parts
Boy meets girl, better shelter our hearts
We trace the steps
That a thousand lovers have danced before
Without a sound, we're face to face,
And every breath is suspended in space
Every moment we're together
Just leaves us wanting more

Holding back tonight, afraid of tomorrow
We both know something's got to give
Gotta make it soul to soul,
So come a little closer

[Chorus]

We're only a heartbeat away,
From laying it all on the line
We're only a heartbeat away,
It's just a matter of time
So tell me that you need me,
And i'll come runnin', baby can't you see
We're only a heartbeat away

It's in the air, it's in our eyes,
Burning through every cool disguise
And pretending that we don't care
Pushes us closer to each other's fire
It's too late to break the spell that encircles us
The chains of destiny are strong,
Stronger than both of us
Come on, let's surrender

[Chorus]

We're only a heartbeat away,
From laying it all on the line
We're only a heartbeat away,
Well it's just a matter of time
So tell me that you need me,
And i'll come runnin', baby can't you see
We're only a heartbeat away

Been too scared of taking a fall,
Just a heartbeat away from giving our all
It's only love, only love

(Solo)


Holding back tonight, afraid of tomorrow
We both know something's got to give
Gotta make it soul to soul,
Come on, let's surrender

[Chorus]

We're only a heartbeat away,
So come on get closer
We're only a heartbeat away yeah yeah
Tell me that you need me (need me)
And i'll come runnin', baby can't you see
We're only a heartbeat away
From laying it all on the line
We're only a heartbeat away,
Well it's just a matter of time
Oh baby tell me that you need me,
And i'll come runnin', baby can't you see
We're only a heartbeat away
(We're only a heartbeat away)
Don't laying it all on the line
Only a heartbeat away
(We're only a heartbeat away) yeah


10.IT WOULDN'T BE LOVE

It would be so easy, it would be so nice
If we could solve all our problems, solve 'em overnight
Everything would be so good, if everything went right

Oh baby you're just living in a fairy tale world
Thinkin' that love don't take a lot of work
You think it's all rainbows and not any rain, but it doesn't work that way

[Chorus]

It wouldn't be love, if it didn't hurt a little now, baby
And it wouldn't be love, if you didn't have to cry sometimes
I know sometimes it ain't easy and sometimes it gets rough
But if it was any different baby, then it wouldn't be love
It wouldn't be love


So you just wanna walk out when the times get tough
If all you'll take are the good times, that's not good enough
Maybe you should come back yeah, when you're all grown up

Oh baby, you're just living in a fairy tale world
Thinkin' that love don't take a lot of work
You think it's all rainbows and not any rain, gotta be some rainy days

[Chorus]

It wouldn't be love, if it didn't hurt a little now, baby
And it wouldn't be love, if you didn't have to cry sometimes
I know sometimes it ain't easy and sometimes it gets rough
But if it was any different baby, then it wouldn't be love
It wouldn't be love

Baby, you're just living in a fairy tale world
Thinkin' that love don't take a lot of work
If you think it's all rainbows and not any rain, it doesn't work that way yeah yeah

(Solo)

It's a fight sometimes

It would be so easy, it would be so nice
If we could solve our problems, solve them overnight, but...

[Chorus]

It wouldn't be love, if it didn't hurt a little now, baby
And it wouldn't be love, if you didn't have to cry sometimes
I know sometimes it ain't easy and sometimes it gets rough
But if it was any different baby, then it wouldn't be love, if it didn't hurt a little now, baby
No it wouldn't be love, if you didn't have to cry sometimes
I know sometimes it ain't easy and Sometimes it gets rough
But if it was any different baby, then it Wouldn't be love
It wouldn't be love (X 3)
(It wouldn't be love)
Nonononono
(It wouldn't be love) X 3)


11. WRECKING BALL

You don't need a special invitation
To come to the blow-out party of a nation
The big one's been set up for tonight
Wreak a little havoc till the place is a sight

No more reason to be pleasin',
Rocket blast, rock it down, rock on 10
Tomorrow might never come again

[Chorus]

Let's have a wrecking ball -
Really tear it up
Let's have a wrecking ball -
A little rough and tough
This is it - last call -
Let's raise hell until the walls fall
Let's have a wrecking ball

Abandon all morality,
Anything goes, got nothin' to lose but your sanity
The finger's on the button, this is your last ride
It's an "E" ticket with the devil by your side

Missiles burning, sky is turning,
Grab it up, rip it hard, take a bite
You might not see the morning light

[Chorus]

Let's have a wrecking ball -
Really tear it up
Let's have a wrecking ball -
A little rough and tough
This is it - last call -
Let's raise hell until the walls fall
Let's have a wrecking ball

(Solo)

[Chorus]

Let's have a wrecking ball -
Really tear it up
Let's have a wrecking ball -
A little rough and tough
This is it - last call -
Let's raise hell until the walls fall
Let's have a wrecking ball
Really tear it up
Let's have a wrecking ball -
A little rough and tough
This is it - last call
Let's raise hell until the walls fall
Let's have a wrecking ball -
Really tear it up
Let's have a wrecking ball -
A little rough and tough
This is it - last call -
Let's raise hell until the walls fall
Let's have a wrecking ball -
Really tear it up yeah
A little rough and tough
This is it - last call -
Let's raise hell until the walls fall
