1. IN THE FUTURE TO COME

So many years ago the people on this earth
They were laughin'
They didn't think of anything else
Than love and peace
But generations failed to see
That they were causin'
Trouble for the future
They didn't know that one single war
Would continue to increase

But I'll be beside you
Cause I want to hide you
I'll cover my pain
Or I'll go insane
Oh Lord where will it end
When tomorrow is done
Oh Lord can we stop to pretend
That we can survive in the future to come

As long as you can see
As long as you can feel
There's no cause for alarm
As long as you can touch
As long as you can move
It ain't too bad
But one day or another
This world would maybe
Be destroyed forever
A holocaust maybe be spread
And drive us all mad




2. SEVEN DOORS HOTEL

Fourhoundred years back in this time
Seven Doors Hotel
A massacre took place and a young man died
Opened one gate to Hell
The Eibon is open use your eyes
To read and learn
In the end it could be your turn

1981 traces were found
That could not exist in one's mind
A woman could lead you totally deceive you
Without your knowing she's blind

Seven Doors Hotel
One of seven gates to Hell
Seven Doors Hotel
One of seven gates to Hell

Do always watch out for things
That you see but don't understand
The Devil is there always somewhere
Ready to command




3. STORMWIND

I like to sit beside the fire
When the light is going down
I like to hear the wild wind blow outside my door
I have so much left to remember
I have so much left to forget
And I know I just don't have to search for more

But you want to change my world
Stay out of my life

Stormwind--you're just like a wind
Comin' to drag me away
Stormwind--what can I say
I just don't want you to stay

I like to walk around in dreams at night
And play with kings and queens 'til the morning light
I like to wake up in the morning unaware
Of the fact that you are calling me
To ask me if I want to be
Someone who you could love and always care for




4. OPEN YOUR HEART

Days filled with joy and days filled with sorrow
I don't know just what to do
Am I happy today, am I lonely tomorrow
Everything depends on you

I've been waiting for the angels to knock on my door
I've been hopin' that everything could be like before

Open your heart and tell me what's wrong
Why can't you talk like you used to do before
I don't know if I'm weak, I don't know if I'm strong
Hey girl, I can't cope anymore

I've been waiting...

Open your heart, let me hear you
Make up your mind, I want to hear you call
Open your heart, want to come near you
Make up your mind, oh girl, before I fall

Maybe the sun will continue to shine
Maybe the rain will continue to fall
Maybe you want to leave me behind
Maybe you'll change and give me a call




5. SCREAM OF ANGER

I won't live to see tomorrow
There won't be another breath
None of them will ever sorrow
Those who sentenced me to death

I've been waiting here for ages
For the hangman to appear
Soon the priest will read some pages
From the Bible for my fear

I see a place an evil place
Comin' my way
What can I do where can I run
I'm gonna die anyway
Things are getting clearer
This is the price I have to pay
I feel like screaming out my anger
There is so much left here to do
When it happened I was younger
And my destiny was you

I see a place an evil place...

What can I do
About leaving you
We were only halfway through
What can I say
There was no other way
They wouldn't let me stay




6. DREAMER

He is down by the riverside
Late one night
He's tryin' to count the stars
In each of the signs
All alone by the riverside
And time passes by
Gathering thoughts of the past
And maybe he'll cry

So they say he's a madman
And he don't understand
But I know that he's tryin' hard
To act like a man
All those years he has suffered, my friends
All those years of pain
But I don't think he knows for sure
If those years were in vain

He's a dreamer
And he's fightin' for his life
He's tryin' to understand
He's a dreamer
But he wants to carry on
Yet I know he's a lonely man




7. THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell ?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown...

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so




8. ON BROKEN WINGS

Little Jeanie Cried, she believed in all his lies
So much for being good, oh.
Johnny did not rest he did what he thought was best,
He did the best he could.
Don't try to see the world in different ways
Those moments and all those days.
Don't let them faint away...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you'll have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky

Now he's feeling bad
His heart is cold it's o so sad
Somehow he did her wrong, yeaheah
Little Jeanie's heart
Is melting fast ow so fast.
Now she feels so strong
Don't try to see the world in different ways
Those moments and all those days.
Don't let them faint away...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you'll have to fly
Two broken hearts....
Across the sky...

Don't try to see the world in different ways
Those moments and all those days
Don't let them faint away...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how you'll have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky...

On Broken Wings
I guess that's how.. how you have to fly
Two broken hearts...
Across the sky...




9. ROCK THE NIGHT

I've gone through changes
I've gone through pain
But there's not enough reason for me to go insane
I know the feeling, when it grows
I'm in a rage up from my head down to my toes.

You know it ain't easy
Running out of thrills
You know it ain't easy
When you don't know what you want.

Rock now, rock the night
'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
You'd better believe it's right.

I know my limit
Just what it takes
When things ain't good enough
I just pull the brake
Sometimes it's easy
Sometimes so tough
But just have one thing clear
I can't get enough




10. CARRIE

When lights go down, I see no reason
For you to cry. We've been through this before
In every time, in every season,
God knows I've tried
So please don't ask for more.

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again, somewhere, again

I read your mind, with no intentions
Of being unkind, I wish I could explain
It all takes time, a whole lot of patience
If it's a crime, how come I feel no pain

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again

Can't you see it in my eyes
This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change Carrie, Carrie, Carrie
Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again, somewhere, again

When lights go down




11. CHEROKEE

They lived in peace, not long ago
A mighty Indian tribe
But the winds of change,
Made them realize, that the promises were lies.

The white man's greed, in search of gold
Made the nation bleed
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn.

Cherokee - marching on the trail of tears.

They were driven hard, across the plains
And walked for many moons
Cause the winds of change,
Had made them realize, that the promises were lies.

So much to bear, all that pain
Left them in despair
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn




12. SUPERSTITIOUS

Keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

I'm not superstitious, I have no doubt
That there's a reason, how things turn out
While things are changin' from day to day
I'll keep this feelin' with me all the way

And I want you to know
That you're on my mind
Every day, all of the time

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

There might be times of wonder
When I'm on my own
Tryin' to find out if love has gone
It might make a difference
It might bring me down
But no superstition is gonna turn things around

And I want you to know
That you're on my mind
Every day, all of the time

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious

So keep on walkin' and we'll make things right
Yeah, keep on dreamin' each and every night
We're gonna make it, that's what we'll do
Right to the end girl, we're gonna walk on through

So keep on walkin' that road and I'll follow
Keep on callin' my name I'll be there
And if a mirror should break it's easy to take
Cause deep down I know that you care
I'm not superstitious




13. READY OR NOT

Ready or not but I waste no time
I'm headin' out with some friends of mine
Holdin' on to what we've got
Oh even if we're ready or not

Ready or not but they're back in town
The word is out that this time around
They'll be lettin' go with all they've got
Oh even if we're ready or not

Rock me til I hit that floor
Rock me til I take no more
Roch this hungry heart of mine
Rock me down right to the ground
Rock me like you never done before
Then rock me just a little more

Ready or not but for all I know
We'll be hangin' on til it's time to go
We're always there with all we've got
Oh even if we're ready or not

Ready or not but i waste no time...

Rock me til I hit that floor...




14. PRISONERS IN PARADISE

I want to learn how to fly
I want to be respected
I want to get lucky
I want to get out of this dump
I just want to watch TV
I want to be loved
I want to be different
I want a brother and sister
I'd just rather be forgotten
I want to save the world
I want to be understood
I want to be rich
Man, I just want to be somebody

Julie's got the word today
She lost her job just one last pay
Life don't come easy anymore
Still strugglin'on by herself
Got a picture of Jimmy
There on the shelf
And she looks at him and says
Why did we let it go

I know that sometimes baby
We didn't see things eye-to-eye
But I got just one question
Did we have to say goodbye

Just like prisoners in paradise
Still far from heaven's door
We had it all but still we
Wanted more
Now I realize that I can't
Turn back the future's here
To stay but hey
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday

Jimmy still recalls the night
When he took his guitar
And headed on out
To find the big time
That was his dream
He gave up his past
And made it alright
But there's something missin'
In his heart tonight
Sometimes what you want
Ain't what you need

He misses drivin' down
To the lake at night
Holdin' his baby
In his arms so tight
Ain't it hard to find illusions
When you're livin' in a memory

Just like prisoners in paradise
So close but yet so far
There will come a time
No matter who you are
When you ask yourself
Was it right or wrong
For me to turn away but hey
We're just children of tomorrow
Hangin' on to yesterday




15. I'LL CRY FOR YOU

I never dreamed that
I could fall
But something's come
Over me
Now I'm sittin' starin'
At the wall
Afraid for my sanity

The sound of your voice
The touch of your skin
It's hauntin' me
I'm still tryin' to come
To my senses
But I can't look back
So I'm takin' my chances

I wanna give you my heart
Give you my soul
I wanna lay in your arms
Never let go
Don't wanna live my
Life without you
But I know when you're gone
Like a fire needs a spark
Like a fool in the dark
I'll cry for you

Wonderin' why I'm
Runnin' scared
From what I belive in
I know that love
Is just another word
To say what I'm feelin'

For once in my life
The future is mine
It's callin' me
I've been searchin' so long
For an answer
But it's too late now
So I'm takin' my chances




16. SWEET LOVE CHILD

She stands in the doorway
In the pale moon shine
When she looks at me, every part of me,
Brings my soul back to life

Eyes like a rainbow
They cut right through
Oh I'm lost in time
All through my mind
I'm in love what can I do

Sweet love child...

I shiver, I shiver and shake
It's been a long, long time
When she touches me, every part of me
Just comes back alive

She rides like the wind
On a summers night
And she gives and takes
In the love she makes
Sweet Love Child

She makes everything so right

My sweet love child...

By the light of the morning
Like an angel's sigh
I can feel her breath
Lying next to me
With the world locked outside

I can feel
A taste so sweet
And she gives me love
All the precious love
It makes my life so complete

So sweet

18. THE FINAL COUNTDOWN 2000

We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell ?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown...

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so
