1. KISS OF DEATH [5:48]
(Lynch, Pilson, Brown)

A brief encounter
Like wind through the trees
It came so suddenly
But then it was gone
Like it had never been
How could I have ever seen
A lost heart
Will take your soul

How could I have known
How could I have known
As she took me in her arms
And brought me to an end
With the kiss of death
The kiss of death

She promised paradise
As she lied upon her bed
Like a fallen angel
With the devil's charm
She promised paradise
With the kiss of death

I tried to stop
As she held out her hand
But the fire was burning inside
She knew what i wanted
She gave it and more
But now I must pay the price
We were strangers
Passing in the night

How could I have known
How could I have known
As she took me in her arms
And brought me to an end
With the kiss of death
The kiss of death

She promised paradise
As she lied upon her bed
Like a fallen angel
With the devil's charm
She promised paradise
With the kiss of death

As she took me in her arms
I felt the devil's charm
Suddenly I see
The final destiny
With the kiss of death
The kiss of death

She promised paradise
As she lied upon her bed
Like a fallen angel
With the devil's charm
She promised paradise
With the kiss of death

With the kiss of death




2.PRISONER [4:19]
(Lynch, Pilson, Brown)




It wasn't just your innocence
No, It wasn't temptation
It was just your own way
Of placing the blame on me

Stop thinking that it's all the name
You keep trading your love for pain
Someday her answer will come
'Cause there ain't no way to escape

Baby I'm a prisoner
Chained by love
It's so easy to see
I can never be free
I'm a prisoner
Chained by love

The answer for your lonliness
Is only frustration
So you gave it all away
By placing the blame on me

Remember how it used to be
Your lies won't ----- that easily
Something's wrong
Why can't you see
There ain't no way to escape

Baby I'm a prisoner
Chained by love
It's so easy to see
I can never be free
I'm a Prisoner
Chained by love
Chained by love
It's so easy to see
I can never be free
I'm a Prisoner
Chained by love

---- and misery
'Cause I'm a prisoner
Did my time so let me be
Let me go
Your holding me

Someday her answer will come, you wait
Something's wrong
Why can't you see
That there ain't no way to escape
Escape

Baby I'm a prisoner
Chained by love
It's so easy to see
I can never be free
I'm a Prisoner
Chained by love
Chained by love
It's so easy to see
I can never be free
I'm a Prisoner
Chained by love
Chained by love

It's so easy to see
I can never be free
I'm a prisoner
Chained by love




3. NIGHT BY NIGHT [5:20]
(Pilson, Lynch, Brown, Dokken)




It's bad enough being under control
Same thing every day
Then at night
There's a place we can go
Where nothing can stand in our way

Night by night
I can't keep it away
Night by night
Not living for the day
Night by night
It's now or never
So baby can't you see

We're living night by night
It's just you and me
Living night by night
We're living night by night
We never see the light of day
So baby can't you see
We're living night by night
yeah, we're living it night by night
The night is all that we need

I got alot
But I wanna have more
Things just haven't been right
I'll show you to my paradise
And let you see the light

It's now or never
Gget out of the way
It's now or never
So baby can't you see

We're living night by night
It's just you and me
Living night by night
We're living night by night
We never see the light of day
So baby can't you see
We're living night by night
Yeah, we're living it night by night
The night is all that we need

When the shadows come
Might be no moon at all
You can never tell
When you're under the spell
The night is all that we need

It's now or never
Get out of the way
It's now or never
So baby can't you see

We're living night by night
It's just you and me
Living night by night
We're living night by night
We never see the light of day
So baby can't you see
We're living night by night
It's just you and me
Living night by night
We're living night by night
We never see the light of day

Night by night
We're living night by night
Night by night
We're living night by night
Night by night
We're living night by night
Night by night
We're living night by night




4.STANDING IN THE SHADOWS [5:05]
(Dokken, Lynch, Pilson)




He was a desparate man
They couldn't understand
He wanted more from life
It was his one device

Yeah, he fell tried and hung
When the lights were low
Yeah it was in his eyes
And it was no surprise

Through the streets at night
He's smiling like no other
As he paid again
Look to find another

Standing in the shadows
Watching the world go by
Standing in the shadows
He was looking
Looking for a place to hide

He felt this way before
And knew he wanted more
He knew the dawn would come
And he'd be on the run

But still they drove him on
Like a loaded gun
His time was running out
And he realized that he'd been here before

Like a scream in the night
For his crime they showed no pity
Even though they'd done the same
It's the way of life in the city

Standing in the shadows
Watching the world go by
Standing in the shadows
He was looking
Looking for a place to hide

Lock your doors

Standing in the shadows
Watching the world go by
He was standing in the shadows
Looking
Looking for a place
Standing in the shadows
He was standing in the shadows
Watching the world
Standing in the shadows
Standing in the shadows
He was standing in the shadows
Standing in the shadows
Standing in the shadows




5. HEAVEN SENT [4:50]
(Dokken, Lynch, Pilson)




There seems no justice
When you fall in lve
It gives you blindness
When you are the one
The one that's hurting
'Cause they got the gun
There seems no justice
When you fall in love

Save me
Dont let me fall
Heaven sent
I heard the call
Stop me
Dont let me go
Touch my heart
Then let me know

Heaven sent
Thought you would set me
Heaven sent
Thought it could never be
Heaven sent
If I had only seen
That you were burning the fire in me

You took passion
Most of my soul
But I will come back baby
Stronger than before
Take my feelings
Leave me in pain
I will forget you
One of these days

Stop me
From feeling this way
Heaven sent
You drive me insane
Hold me
Dont let me go
Touch me now
Then let me know

Heaven sent
Thougth you would set me free
Heaven sent
Thought it could never be
Heaven sent
If I had only seen
That you were burning the fire in me

Passion burned
I felt the fire
Touch my soul
I felt desire
Now I see
Where we went wrong
Am I to blame
I've fallen in love

Passion burned
I felt the fire
Touch my soul
I felt desire
Now I see
Where we went wrong
Heaven sent
But you're not the one

Heaven sent
Thought you would set me free
Heaven sent
Thought it could never be
Passion burned
I felt the fire
Heaven sent but baby you're not the one
Heaven sent
Heaven sent
I felt the fire
Heaven sent
Heaven sent
Heaven sent
Hevaen sent but baby you're not the one

7. SO MANY TEARS [4:54)
(Dokken, Lynch, Pilson)




I, yeah, I'm leaving today
Sorry is not enough
Like so many things
We were lost forever

I can't turn the hands of time
Back to the way it was
I can only go on
To find a better road

I can't stop you now
My back's against the wall

There's only so many tears you can cry
There's only so many ways you can say goodbye
There's only so many tears you can cry
There's only so many ways you can say goodbye
So many tears you can cry

You had such a foolish heart
You thought it would last forever
But you were the one
That brought it to an end

Now I'm standing in the rain
'Cause I wasn't there for you
Such a fool was I
It should have never been

I couldn't stop you now
My back's against the wall

There's only so many tears you can cry
There's only so many ways you can say goodbye
There's only so many tears you can cry
There's only so many ways you can say goodbye
So many tears
So many tears
Only so many tears you can cry

You can't change the world
Place the blame on me
Life goes on without you
There's nothing left for me

I can't change the world
Place the blame on me
Life goes on without you
And now at last I see
There's only so many tears you can cry
There's only so many ways you can say goodbye
Only so many tears you can cry
There's only so many ways you can say goodbye

I can't take anymore
So mnay tears
Life goes on without you
So many tears
There's nothing left for me
So many tears
And now we're lost forever
So many tears
