Lyrics

1. WE WON'T BE BACK

O.K. No surrender, I've got fear running down my spine
And back to sender, this may be my last time
I get the gun now, over the top to death
Watch them cry, Watch them die

[Chorus]
We won't be back again
No no, we won't be back (x3)

Please remember, remember me from my past
Please be tender, Momma, this letter may be my last
I get the gun now, over the top to death
Watch them cry, Watch them fly

[Chorus]

Oh no we won't be back again
No no we won't be back again (x3)

I've been telling you
We won't be back
We won't be back




2. 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

[Chorus]
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah

You and the 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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]




3. 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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]




4. 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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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




5. 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

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
Helpless, helpless, oohh




6. I DON'T GOT

I've been crying baby, oh there's no denying
I've been doing my best, I know I'm gonna keep on trying
Ain't got nobody, ain't got nobody, ain't got nobody to love
Ain't got nobody, ain't got nobody, ain't got nobody to love

I don't got, I don't got nobody's love (x4)

Somebody come to me, I don't like what it is to be losing
I need somebody's loving, I don't want no more self abusing

I don't got, I don't got nobody's love (x4)
I'm gonna get it honey, ooh yeah

I don't got, I don't got nobody's love (x4)




7. LIGHTNING TO THE NATIONS

Yes I'm coming
Angel from the sky, put his hand in mine
I can spread you gifts, for golden present time

[Chorus]
I'm going to set you down
I'm going to make it right
I'm going to bring it home
I'll bring you lightning to the nations
To the nations (x3)

From the shores of home, we send a gift of love
To sweet and hopeful hearts, a gift from high above

[Chorus]

Here it comes now
London
New York
To the nations
To the nations
Lightning to the nations




8. 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




9. IT'S ELECTRIC (REMIX)

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)




10. AM I EVIL ?

My mother was a witch, she was burned alive
Thankless little bitch, for the tears I cried
Take her down now, don't wanna see her face
Blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace

27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice, take my time

[Chorus]
Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man

As I watched my Mother die, I lost my head
Revenge now I sought, to break with my bread
Takin' no chances, you come with me
I'll split you to the bone
Help set you free.

27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice, take my time

[Chorus]

On with the action now, I'll strip your pride
I'll spread your blood around, I'll see you ride
Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat
Like a double dozen before you, smell so sweet.

27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice, take my time

[Chorus]

I'll make my residence, I'll watch your fire
You can come with me, sweet desire
My face is long forgotten, my face not my own
Sweet and timely whore, take me home




11. 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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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




12. SUCKING MY LOVE

Over and under, do you go down to the sea
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sweet and timely caress, dear babe fulfillin' me

I can feel her heart, it is beating down inside
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tasty, tasty, tasty, tasty

Into her valley, all her charms taste of love
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Fragrance of my dreams, yeah go down, take my love
Oh yeah, yeah

Taste my bitter wine, cos there's something boiling up inside
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tasty, tasty, tasty, tasty

Faster......love....
Make me go.....
Shoot me
Faster, faster

Love, sucking my love
Oh Lord, sucking my love
Oh Lord, sucking my love




13. SHOOT 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)




14. 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)




15. DIAMOND LIGHTS

I have just arrived the soundcheck gets underway
Three hours to go, then it's time to play
Check guitars now baby, everything looks fine
Now to do a number, take our time
I smile as I look around me
The band plays so tight
I look around me, I see and feel
Diamond lights, Diamond lights
Soundcheck's finished baby, time to tell a joke or two
Relax, can't let it get to you
The haunted theatre now has come to life
Time to tip you hat to the band
Curtain up, the people welcome you
Guess everything's alright
I see the people now, hypnotised by

Diamond lights (x10)
