Behold the Beginning tracks

Lyrics

1. IT'S ELECTRIC

I'm gonna be a rock 'n' roll star
Gotta groove from night to day
Gotta blow my honey jar, yeah
Gotta blow my blues away
I'm gonna make a stand
I'm gonna make a million
I'm gonna make it with you
I'm gonna be with my friend
I'm gonna put you through

It's electric (x4)

I stop on red but I leave on amber
Danger paves my way
I'm gonna make it my friend
Gonna make it today
Gonna get the dust from my heels,
Down the highway I go
Gonna get the stars from my brow
Playing in a rock 'n' roll show

It's electric (x4)

I stop on red but I leave on amber
Danger paves my way
I'm gonna make it my friend
Gonna make it today
Gonna get the dust from my heels,
Down the highway I go
Gonna get the stars from my brow
Playing in a rock 'n' roll show

It's electric (x4)




2. THE PRINCE

Now I see his face, I've seen him smile
Such in a lonely place, no golden mile
His eyes tell morbid tales, of his black heart
His deeds through ages past, tell of his part
See his face, see his smile
Time to die An angel from below, change my dreams
I want for glory's hour, for wealth's esteem
I wish to sell my soul, to be reborn
I wish for earthly riches, don't want no crown of thorns
See his face, see his smile
Time to die I was born a fool, don't want to stay that way
Devil take my soul, with diamonds you repay
I don't care for heaven, don't you look for me to cry
And I will burn in Hell, from the day I die
See his face, see his smile
Time to die




3. SWEET AND INNOCENT

You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You look so fine girl
I suppose you always do
So fine and so sweet
It's good to look at you
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah
You ain't in fashion
Baby you're as one
It's not long before - it's much more than fun
Yes it's taking chances, but they don't want to know
And since your fine baby left you
Don't know which way to go
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah
You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You take it good girl
I don't know who will bring you down
Who will bring you down
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah




4. SUCKING MY LOVE

5. STREETS OF GOLD

Well I know what I want, I know how to get it
These streets in my mind, needing more
I long to survive, I call for yesterday
Feel all this passion, love some more
Streets of gold
I gotta make my stand
Streets of gold, oohh
Well I know what I need, when Ma wrote me a note
Said come home to stay, I said no
Can you see the light, long to her far away
Streets of gold
I gotta make my stand
Streets of gold, oohh
Well I know what I want, I know how to get it
These streets in my mind, needing more
I long to survive, I call for yesterday
Feel all this passion, love some more
Streets of gold
I gotta make my stand
Streets of gold, oohh




6. PLAY IT LOUD

Hey mom, what do you say
I've seen the lights more than what they say
The music's fine, I like it loud
I play my song, loud and proud
Yeah baby, it's alright
It's so late, I'll take my time
Light the lights and burn my brain
Sweeten me, it's just the same
Hey dad, what do you say, oh yeah
You gotta know, know, know what makes my day
You hit it good, you hit it right
I'm going on now, I'll be good tonight
Yeah baby, it's alright
It's so late, I'll take my time
Light the lights and burn my brain
Sweeten me, it's just the same
Play it loud...
Oh I want you to, I'll groove you too
Loud, oh, that's gotta be
You know it's gotta be




7. SHOUT OUT THE LIGHTS

Let me tell you now, about a friend of mine
He tried to shoot them lights, with whiskey and the wine
He didn't get so far, ah his gun was wrong
Now my sweet friend, where's your song ?

Shoot out the lights (x4)

Now that friend of mine, he never made a day
Didn't know what to do, told him to get away
I ain't going yet he said, I'm gonna be a star
I got a gun my friend, sitting in the car

Shoot out the lights (x4)

Let me tell you now, about a friend of mine
He tried to shoot them lights, with whiskey and the wine
He didn't get so far, ah his gun was wrong
Now my sweet friend, where's your song ?

Shoot out the lights (x4)




8. WAITED TOO LONG

Now I feel I must say goodbye, I wanted you to see
It's not over between you and I, I'm sure you must agree
I gave you time but not enough it seems
I'm saying baby

Waited too long, waited too long for you to see
Waited too long, I've waited too long
Waited too long, waited too long
Waited to long for you to be
Waited too long, waited too long

Ooh baby, I must be moving on
Cos now I know we're not in love
And soon I will be gone
The times that we've had, good and bad
I'm saying baby

Waited too long, waited too long for you to see
Waited too long, I've waited too long
Waited too long, waited too long
Waited to long for you to be
Waited too long, waited too long
I will be moving on, I've waited so long
Soon I will be gone, oh don't you see




9. HELPLESS

I gotta see you moving fast, see you come my way
See the dreams, I hope they last, never fade away
Gotta see the lights above, make it loud tonight
Gotta set it all on fire, set it all alight
I can see the flashing lights, hear the thunder roll
I am gonna set you alight
Gotta make it man, I ain't got no choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

Helpless (x8)

I don't know what I'm gonna do, maybe not tonight, yeah
Gotta set you all afire, gotta treat you right
I can see the flashing lights, lazer for your love
Gotta hear the thunder roar, coming from above
See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man, I ain't got no choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

Helpless (x8)

I can see the stars, I can see what's going on
Every night alone, I sing my songs just for fun
Only time will tell if I make it myself someday
The stage is mine, music is my destiny
Cannot squeeze the life from me
I can see the stars, I can see what's going on
Every night alone, I sing my songs just for fun
This business ain't for laughs, business men don't like it so
Helpless maybe babe, but you can still enjoy the show
Cannot squeeze the life from me
Gotta be good, see you tonight
I know that was fine
Gotta be safe, gotta be true
You know that you're mine
Help me now, I'm coming home, ohh
Gotta be fine, gotta be right
You'll set me alight
Help me now, I'm coming home
I can see the band from miles away
Looks so right, feels so tight, oohh
Feels so fine, feels so good. oohh
Makes a man a whole man
Lord it's gonna make my day

Helpless, helpless, oohh (x2)
