FREE AT LAST

 

When they told me to walk tall, I really tried to do my best

When they said: It's all your fault, I knew I'd never stand the test

When they were reading me my rights, I didn't understand

But somehow somewhen I found out, I held it in my hand , in my hand

Ooohoohoohooh Ooohoohooh I'm free

 

I couldn't find the fun in all those things they paid me money for

I always hated to wake up and then I feared to open up the door

I took cover in the dark to hide from shadows on the wall

But someday somehow the light turned bright and I now really see it all, see it all

Ooohoohoohooh Ooohoohooh I'm free

 

 

After years of grey darkness, a lifetime of woe

Sun has taken over, it's melting the snow

Please don't ask where I've been,  please don't force me to lie again

No, not even a fleeting glimpse at the long way I came

Ooohoohoohooh Ooohoohooh I'm free 

 

 

G.O.A.T.

 

Last week he murdered a rock,

Now he's gone, G.O.A.T.

He's the man who threw thunder in jail

Now he's gone, G.O.A.T.

It was hard for him to be humble,

but he was, G.O.A.T.

 

Floated like a butterfly, stung like a bee

G.O.A.T.

Cause the hands can't hit what the eyes can't see.

Now he's gone

G.O.A.T.

 

The most beautiful fighter

Now he's gone, G.O.A.T.

No cheek-turner, no hater,

Now he's gone, G.O.A.T.

He didn't count the days, he made them count

Now he's gone G.O.A.T.

 

Inside of a ring or out

Ain't nothing wrong with going down

He knew: It's staying down, that's wrong

He became what he thought

He'd  got wings. He. We.

 

But time is a foe too strong

So the greatest,  he's gone

G.O.A.T.

 

 

 

OH NO (IT'S A LIE)

 

She said oh boy, I love you so

And I will never let you go

You are the man I've waited for

I shall love no one ever more

Oh no - it's a lie

 

She said she'd never gonna leave

But we both know that time's a thief

And then the other man appeared

So happened what I always feared

Oh no - it's a lie

 

She took her love away

Could no longer stay

Walked out of the door

Oh no - it's a lie

 

 

WHAT SHE DOES

 

She always feels when I come home again too late

She's moaning easy when I slip inside our bed

I can hardly tell what she all means to me

What she does is what I need

 

She came over me like summer rain

brought love and light an nothing staid the same

She's the meaning in the things that make my day

What she does is what I need

 

 

She saved my life, she made me strong

Gives advice and guidance, sense of right an wrong,

She catches me when I am falling down

What she does is what I need

 


 

SHAKE THINGS UP

 

He is the real gone guy and he plays it cool

on his red guitar

He's got blue suede shoes and a motor-bike

he's gonna drive it far

He's the king of the road and when comes to town

all the little girls are gonna hang around

where his big Winnebago parks at the Topless-Bar

 

He's gonna shake things up tonight

Tonight (Shake 'em up)

 

When the show begins and the drummer drums

And the bass-man booms

When the rock is rollin' and the mood is high

And his guitar zooms

He's gonna play a lick you've never heard before

'n' the crowd keeps jumping all across the floor

And the little girls cry

In front of his dressing room

 

 

He's gonna shake things up tonight

Tonight (Shake 'em up)

 

All the shows sell out, the promoters smile

'n' and his agent smirks

When they hit the stage and the band rocks off

You'll gonna watch 'em jerk

With the amps turned up and the light-show bright, they'll keep

rocking and a-rolling till the broad daylight. They're

the real gone guys

And they know how to make it work

 

He's gonna shake things up tonight

Tonight (Shake 'em up)

 

 

 

WON'T MAKE IT ON MY OWN

 

When the days were long

the clouds were white and high

When the moon was blue

I started to give in

 

While the night was warm

I watched her sleep so tight

And I realized

I won't make it on my own

on my own

won't make it on my own

won't make it on my own

 

When the morning came

And the birds were singing

I woke up softly

And found her by my side

 

All the tears I've cried

Had watered hopeless stones

But now she smiled and said

I won't make it on my own

on my own

won't make it on my own

won't make it on my own

 

 

 

RECALL (NORTH OF NOWHERE, SOUTH OF LOVE)

 

North of nowhere - south of love

West of sleep - I dreamed of

A magic carpet - rollercoaster ride

 

Easy money - fun for free

Just like that - like one two three

Am I kidding - yes I am

For sure

 

Recall the times - Recall the day

Recall that song that slipped away

 

Thorns in the garden - Crop in the rain

Dusty springtime - I feel the same

Way I did - before we met

In June

 

A little money - a bit of peace

We shot the dog to kill the fleas

Was it right - what we tried

That fall

 

Recall the times - Recall the day

Recall that   song that slipped away

Recall that song - Recall the light

Recall the dreams we dreamed that night

 

Recall that song - Recall the light

Recall the dreams we dreamed

 

Song is over - rock'n'roll

Never mind - they stole his soul

I burned bridges - maybe not

Too late

 

 

 

I WON'T BE THERE

 

If you hear me – cut the line

I'll be gone soon – to wine and dine

Ways to know, ways to walk, ways to choose

Dreams to have, dreams to dreams, dreams to loose

 

Don't wait, I won't be there

 

Hold on for a moment - take a rest

song is over – save your breath

Love to come, love to feel, love to go

Waking up, out of dreams scares me so

 

Don't wait, I won't be there

 

Shake your tambourine

Paint a funny scene

Think of all you might gain

I won't be there

 

 

 

DON'T YOU TELL ME LIES

 

Ride your motor – get some gas and choose a road

Check your map and go ahead

Rock a Rolla – Have a drink and row your boat

take a breath, you ain't yet dead

 

There ain't many things that I might ever expect

But there's a rule you should never forget

 

Shake it up – tear it down

Fool yourself – mess around

Turn it on – shut your eyes

But don't you tell me lies

 

Rotate slowly – got to keep the boogie smooth

Mind the gap and get along

Ride your pony – move your body to the groove

Check your change and sing your song

 

ain't no reason not to knock at my door

But there's a thing you should never ignore

 

 

Shake it up – tear it down

Fool yourself – mess around

Turn it on – shut your eyes

But don't you tell me lies

 

 

 

LATE

 

When she - was young - she knew

How to break men's hearts like they were toys

Oh how - she loved

The envy of the girls and all those boys

Always gazing at her, hoping for a kiss that she might

Throw, those were the days but somehow

Later she - Later she
Later she was late
Somehow - Too late

 

When he was young and smart

He used to play the game real fast and hard

Oh how they loved

to watch him rush and score and win and smile

and there always was a

girl waiting for him

those were the days, but then

 

Later she - Later she
Later she was late
Somehow - Too late

 

Oh, when they dream
what do they see?
What makes them wake up in the night?

Doop doopdoop doodoop

Too late

 

 

MEMORIES

 

It's gonna be an awful sound

So better not be around

When they tear your rainbow down

 

Some say rock'n'roll is dead

No, I don't agree with that

but time 's no longer on its side

You say rock'n'roll will stay

But if you really look its way

You'll find the blues eight miles ahead

 

Who wants these memories?

Who wants these memories?

Who needs these memories?

 

Yes I liked that Cadillac

But that's no reason to go back

To that point of no return

You had good times for so long

That made you know you're never wrong

Hope you die before I get old

 

Nothing but memories

Nothing but memories

Who needs these memories?

Who needs these memories?

 

Nothing but music on your  mind

But it kept you deaf and blind

It's the other day, so try another way

Another chord, another line

 

Rock'n'roll will never die

In times of love and constant high

When songs and singers burn

But when the blue souls turned to green

And the grands came tumbling in

I had to choose a another road

 

Nothing but memories

Nothing but memories

Who needs these memories?

Who needs these memories?

 

It was an really awful sound

I know that, 'cause I was around

When they tore my rainbow down

 

 

 

TIME TO TRY

 

Sheila wears the dress she bought

years ago for nights like this

Pink and green embroideries on

deep blue silk, a touch of bliss

 

Sonny softly wipes across the

engine hood of his machine. The

finish gleams in red and black and

violet, looks like a dream

this might be a night for a start

 

This lightning stroke out of the blue, a

light warm smile beyond compare

where he comes from doesn't count for

her as long as he's just there

 

Sonny never a gave a damn 'bout

What might be or should occur. But

now he just wants love and light to

show the way without a blur

'cause this is the night for a start

 

They're dancing through the things to come

hearts beat like one mighty drum

Time to pray no more

It's time to try

 

Sheila never felt what she feels

Now and it's alright with her

Sonny looks at her and it

Makes him feel like a millionaire

 

Rolling in his hot machine

Way down highway sixty-nine

Her caressing lips give him

shivers up and down his spine

 this is the night and a start

 

They're dancing through the things to come

hearts beat like one mighty drum

Time to pray no more

It's time to try

 

All she ever might have dreamed of now

Suddenly looks pretty real

All he ever might have missed sits be-

side him, wearing spike heels

What a night for a start

CALLING OUT FOR YOU

 

I can't quite explain what happened to me

lightning stroke and I was blind

I was tumbling through a light

that came shining from your eyes

what it was I couldn't say,

and I'm not sure I wanna know

Seven heavens seven sins

This is just the way to go -

 

I'm calling out for you

we'll dance into the blue

all this makes me feel pretty real

 

I should be scared cause I can't see

what's going on behind that light

But in fact no matter what

I'm really sure this will turn out right

I can't give a name to this

but the whole world's looking new

There's something pumping in my brain

Heaven's where we're going too

 

I'm calling out for you

we'll dance into the blue

all this makes me feel pretty real

 

 

 

FOLLOW THE CLOUDS   

 

Up to the sky, or down to the river

Crawling or flying, I'll follow the clouds

Over the world and under the bridges

Thunder or rainbow, I'll walk unbowed

 

You're not the only one – who's trying to get out of here

You're not the only one – going out of his mind

We may not hesitate  - cause time will not wait for us

And if you're not ready now – I'll go there alone

 

Up to the sky, or down to the river

Crawling or flying, I'll follow the clouds

Over the world and under the bridges

Thunder or rainbow, I'll walk unbowed

 

Watching the years go by - is not what I'm going to do

Counting the tears I cry – is not what I want

Keeping my love alive – that's what I wanna do

Keeping my live beloved – is all what I need

 

Up to the sky, or down to the river

Crawling or flying, I'll follow the clouds

Over the world and under the bridges

Thunder or rainbow, I'll walk unbowed

There's time to rest in a another world
There's time to rest in a another world

 

Up to the sky, or down to the river

Crawling or flying, I'll follow the clouds

Over the world and under the bridges

Thunder or rainbow, I'll walk unbowed


 

 

RULE OF LOVE

 

Waking up, fallin' down, everyday

is what she left behind

Drying tears, cryin again, everyday,

that's what she left behind

I won't try to play the game again,

cause I don't care no more

I can't count the days I spent

waitin' till I care no more

 

What's the rule of love?

I don't care no more.

 

Yes it failed, anyway, many times

she had to go

Lots of ways to get lost, I found 'em all,

she had to go

But she never said good bye,

 all she did was disappear

Guess we never had a chance,

I'll never get away from here

 

What's the rule of love?

I don't care no more.

 

Trying to hide from the sparks flying round ev'ry little memory

But there ain't no place safe enough, maybe - there's no saving me

 

What's the rule of love?

I don't care no more.

 

 

 

WASTING TIME

 

Alright, I'm ready now, I'm taking off

The night just waits for me

The sun is down, the light is gone

It's time to feel free

Romancing 's not the way that I will spend this night

I'm going out and I am sure I'll be alright

Wasting time

 

City-streets are gleaming wet

In colored neon light

The rain is gone and pretty soon

I'll be ready to ignite

You're not the one I need to follow me around

I don't need company until I'm homeward bound

I'm wasting time

 

Who loves you, who needs you? Oooh it is your mom

It isn't me tonight, I'm trucking right and having fun

Wasting time

 

Romancing 's not the way that I will spend this night

I'm going out and I am sure I'll be alright

Wasting time

 

 

 

SHAKE IT ALL OFF

 

Did ya ever lose your way

 walking on a straight track

Did ya ever scare a soul

and you knew you shouldn't

Did ya ever fall in love

 when you could have known better

Shake it all off

 

Did ya ever walk away

when you'd better be waiting longer

Did ya ever close your eyes

when you should have been on the run

Did ya ever lose your cool

and you know you can't remember

Shake it all off

 

Don't you start to count your faults

And if you do, you better change that way

Try and take the other road

Shake it off, shake it off,

Gotta shake it off

 

Did ya ever sing the blues

without any given reason

Did ya ever steal a heart

feeling you are doing wrong

Did ya ever understand

what the man in the mirror told you

Shake it all off

 

 

 

MASTERPIECE

 

The way I used to go,

the roads I used to run

The things I always thought

that they are heavy duty scum

The walk of fame and heroes

the rise of noise and trash

The runway to the east

 where you make a lot of cash

 

(Refrain)

You feel it is wrong but you'll never ever find the keys

You're right in the middle

of a great fraud masterpiece

 

No matter where you go

no matter where you run

Maybe you're second winner

if it's brilliant what you've done

You'll never make the day

no matter what you do

Be sure there's always someone

who is right in front of you

 

(Refrain)

 

The game is on

rolling high on your expense

They need you bad

if you believe in commonsense

Masterpiece

you will never find the keys

But pay pay pay pay

 

(Refrain)

 

 

 

FEELING ALRIGHT

 

I've been through a night and I've been through a year

Now she's back

Looking at me

in an way I just didn't expect

I'm only half way up

to the peace of my mind

And now she is standing there, waiting for me to be kind

 

(Refrain)

But I ain't gonna argue tonight

I'll keep on laughing and drinking

And feeling alright

 

What in the world have I done

to deserve such a fate

It happened so fast

but still I left her too late

I'm only half way up

to the peace of my soul

And now she is standing there

making me loose my control

 

(Refrain)

 

Mad from being kind

sad from being cruel

Worn out from loving a joker

And a fool

(Refrain)

 

 

 

SWEET JULIA

 

Hit it!

I wait all night

 but she's not here

She's on hit the road

 she's shifting gear

She's driving fast, she's going far

She don't need me, she got a car

(She's not missing me)

Ooooh sweet Julia

(She's not missing me)

 

She drives all night to see the stars

She's speeding up and passing cars

I hang around, she's doing fine

She's having fun

 I'm wasting time

(She's not missing me)

Ooooh sweet Julia

(She's not missing me)

 

Where she goes

 what she does, I don't know

Who she knows, what she loves, I don't know

Maybe I should go back home, spend my life alone

She's not missing me

 

Ooooh sweet Julia

(She's not missing me)

 

 

 

SEVEN ACRES FIELD OF STONE (OVER YOU)

 

Seven acres field of stone

and dying seeds

Wicked needs, wicked needs

Warned but never ever more

then unaware

Never care, never care

 

(Refrain)

Cross the hills

but still you're after me

Torn up shirt and

worn out sneakers

Wig in pink and yellow

still you look so fine

Finally out of sight and earshot

Missing every point of interest

Right into the fog

I'm getting over you, over you

 

What it meant I shouldn't say

and wouldn't know

What a show, what a show

Crusty love and humming brain

beneath my crown

Going down, going down

 

(Refrain)

 

You left me in the mirror

I hope they let me stay there

a while

Did you ever feel or listen

Tell me, tell me

 

 

 

THE WAY WE PLAY

 

When I wake up

I need no morning papers,

don't need no coffee

don't need no toast'n'tea

All I need is a little smile

and a little more

of ev'ry thing you gonna do to me

 

I love it in the morning

I love it in the day

I love it after midnight

The way we play, the way we play

The way we play

 

When I go to bed

and I cut the lights

I won't close my eyes,

I'm gonna wait

for your sweet caress

And when you appear

I'm gonna be aware, I'll be there

And I won't be nowhere else

 

I love it in the morning

I love it in the day

I love it after midnight

Just listen what I say

Ain't nothing as funky

As the way we play,

the way we play,

the way we play,

the way we play

 

 

 

SOME HOT CURVES

 

World was falling into pieces

The second when she hit your eye

All you want are drooling kisses

All she'll do is french your fry

 

Sweet Temptation blowing your mind

Some hot curves leave you confined

Drag behind her all the way

Some hot curves, they make you pray

She's riding high and you will pay

 

You think your odds be fifty fifty,

But you're not even on the track

She will leave you pretty thrifty

She'll take the bread and kick your back

 

Sweet Temptation blowing your mind

Some hot curves leave you confined

Drag behind her all the way

Some hot curves, they make you pray

She's the bird and you're the prey

 

Oooh sweet low temptation

Oooh, squealing desire

 

Oooh sweet low temptation

Oooh, squealing desire

Oooh sweet low temptation

Oooh great balls of fire    

 

Sweet Temptation blowing your mind

Some hot curves leave you confined

Drag behind her all the way

Some hot curves, they make you pray

Sweet Temptation blowing your mind

Some hot curves leave you confined

You're going nowhere but down the drain

Some hot curves drive you insane

You're the fool, but who's to blame

 

 

 

NAKED HEART

 

It was just me and Judy Brown

And time was all we took to town

Night was light enough to see

And daylight was too cold for me

When there was nothing left to share

In a year that toughed us, not to care

Time took me up and shook me down

left just my naked heart around

 

She said we never had a choice

I drank and yelled and wrecked my voice

Till there was no one left to fool

And booze was all that kept me cool

 

I wrecked more than was left me

I give my naked heart to thee

 

Remember clouds drifting

Fighting and shoplifting

Worn out but feeling alive

Wide awake, dreams turning

eyes closed and sweat burning

When time was still on our side

Wrong or right

 

Time took me up and shook me down

left just my naked heart around

I wrecked more than was left me

I give my naked heart

here's my naked heart

I give my naked heart to thee

 

 

 

YOU'VE GOT ME RISING

 

You make me move t'wards the silver line

Strange feeling up and down my spine

You make me walk any road I've ever known

Show feelings I've never shown

 

You've got me rising from my knees

 

Feel no pain, you make me feel so good

Feel no chain, fell like ever should

I don't feel no warning in the air

All that I see is the sunlight I your hair

 

You've got me rising from my knees

 

 

 

CHECKING OUT WHERE THE WIND BLOWS

 

Checking out where the wind blows

Way down south, way down south

Checking out where the weed grows

Way down south, way down south

I'll go running from the cold, from my weird workday

From the falling leaves and snow

There' no price I won't pay

 

I'm turning my face to the sun

When it goes down I'll be gone

Gone cross the sea

No use in waiting for me

 

Checking out how the world turns

Goin' round, goin' round

Checking out how my brain learns

Goin' round, goin' round

Nothing is as straight down here as it tries to seem

So  better get ready for the bend, check out what it means

 

Twentyfour seven is no way to go

All you'll ever get is just another bill to pay

No one 'll ever tell you that you gave enough

Give 'em what they want and you will just been blown away

 

 

Checking out where the oil flows

Way up north, way up north

Checking out where the bread goes

Way up north, way up north

You're lucky if you got the choice between warm and well

If you're on the other side you can go to hell

 

 

 

CHAT WITH AN OLD HOOKER AT THE BAR

 

After what's said and done

I'm doing fine

Good enough to stay alive

Seven more hours left

of this Friday night 

but that love ran out of time

 

Heal my heart tonight

 

It wasn't her mistake

That's what she said

I don't know, maybe she's right

Better not wait for me

that's what I wrote

Did she laugh or did she smile?
