Rockin' into the Night tracks

Lyrics


1. ROCKIN' INTO THE NIGHT

Cruisin' down the motorway,
Got my girl by my side.
We're both a little anxious,
Ooo we got love on our mind.
Waitin', anticipatin'
For the fireworks in the night.
Well I swear we were doin' eighty
When we saw those motel lights.

And we were rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night,
Oo hoo rockin,
Rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night,
Yeah... Out on the back street,
Taking love where I can,
I found a sweet madonna
Ooo with a bible in her hand.
She's waiting,
Anticipating well,
For someone to save her soul;
Well I ain't no new messiah,
But I'm close enough for rock and roll.

And we were rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night,
Oo hoo rockin,
Rockin' into the night,
Rockin' into the night.
And I'm slowin' down
And she's pullin' in

Waitin' anticipatin'
For the fireworks in the night.
Well I swear we were doin' eighty
When we saw those motel lights.
We were rockin',
Rockin,
Into the night,
Ooo yeah
Rockin into the night,
Rockin into the night,
Hoo rockin'!




2. STONE COLD BELIEVER

I speak my mind. I don't hold it back,
That's how I am, and I'm hopin' that's where you' at.
Like I lay it on the line and that's how it should be
If you're gonna make it, man you've got to agree

I'm a stone cold believer, yes, I am,
I believe you can do it if you say that you can
I'm a stone cold believer, not a smooth talkin' man,
Believe I got things well at hand

Wanna climb that ladder, y' wanna make it to the top,
Takes only one thing, gotta give it all y' got.
Knew a man who couldn't lose, 'cause he never gave in,
He stuck to his pistol well it made him a better man.

I'm a stone cold believer, yes, I am,
I believe you can do it if you say that you can
I'm a stone cold believer, not a smooth talkin' man,
Believe I got things well at hand




3. TAKE ME THROUGH THE NIGHT

Hope the circle won't be broken,
By the way things have to be.
Cause I don't really think you know
What you do to me.
Well it's kinda like a movie,
That you've seen so many times.
Can't get you outta my mind.

Take me through the night,
The lonely, lonely night.
It's a thing I only live for,
Another chance to make it right.
Take me through the night,
Take me through the lonely, lonely night.
A dream I've always wished for,
Hope it's alright. (Hope it's alright.)

Knowing how your feelings were,
I had to say goodbye.
We had a magic,
That you can't describe.
A dreamer's world we lived in,
Of memories I can't forget.
Let me dream of you tonight.

Take me through the night,
The lonely, lonely night.
It's a thing I only live for,
Another chance to make it right.
Take me through the night,
Take me through the lonely, lonely night.
A dream I've always wished for,
Hope it's alright.

Take me through the night,
The lonely, lonely night.
A dream I've always wished for. . .
Take me through the night.
Hope it's alright.
Gotta take me through the lonely night.




4. MONEY HONEY

Well the landlord rang my front door bell
He let it ring for a long, long spell
Went to the window, peeked through the blind
Asked him to tell me what was on his mind
An' he said:

Money honey
Money honey
Money honey
If you want to stay up here with me.

I was screamin' green an so hard pressed
I called the woman that I love the best
Finally found my baby 'bout a quarter to three
She said "I wanna know what you want with me"
An I said:

Money honey (Just a little bit)
Money honey
Money honey
If you wanna git along with me.

Well she screamed and said
"What's wrong with you?
From this day on our romance is through."
I should tell my baby, face to face
How could another man take my place?
An she said:

Money honey (lots and lots of that)
Money honey (you got to give me some)
Money honey
If you wanna git along with me.

I learned my lesson and now I know
Sun may shine and the wind may blow
Women come and women may go
But before I'll tell em that I love em so.
I want

Money honey (Do you have some?)
Money honey
Money honey
If you wanna get along with me
Money honey, (Give me)
Money honey, (I need some)
Money honey, if you wanna get along with me.




5. THE LOVE THAT I'VE LOST

Seems I'm standin' on the edge of time
Walked away when your love was mine
Now I've a feeling nothing gained, something lost.
I've made mistakes and it's no disgrace
The final page just can't erase
I'll ride this storm out
Cause maybe, maybe I was wrong.

Is it just my superstition?
To think I need you to carry on.
Or call it maybe just my intuition,
Cause there's nothing gained,
From the love that I've lost.

Time has changed me, I hope you'll see.
Another way to bring your love to me
I'm like the hero, from a broken dream.
Even now lookin' back on my past
Could have loved you, could of made it last.
I'll ride this storm out cause maybe, maybe I was wrong.

Is it just my superstition?
To think I need you to carry on.
Or call it maybe just my intuition,
Cause there's nothing gained,
From the love that I've lost.

Is it just my superstition?
To think I need you to carry on.
Or call it maybe just my intuition,
Cause there's nothing gained,
From the love that I've lost.

It's just my superstition
Or call it intuition

It's your love that I've lost
It's your love that I've lost
You're what I've lost




6. YOU'RE THE CAPTAIN

I'd crawl a mile,
I'd climb the highest hill.
To bring you back to
A life that's real
You burned your mind out,
With your foolish games
May you lie there helpless,
Will you ever be the same.

You're the captain,
The leader of your ship.
Don't get captured (captured),
Cause you just might never quit.
You're the captain,
I hope you realize,
Don't be a fool,
Better open up your eyes.

I've traveled this world,
I've seen most of it.
I've seen the best ones
Go down with the ship.
Fortune and fame,
They don't mean a thing.
When you're hooked on junk,
That's your only game.

You're the captain,
The leader of your ship.
Don't get captured (captured),
Cause you just might never quit.
You're the captain,
I hope you realize,
Don't be a fool,
Better open up your eyes.

Just a part of life,
That we all must go through.
Gettin' high with friends,
Was all in being cool.
Hope you never see, this misery.
A prisoner by drugs
With no right to be free.

You're the captain,
The leader of your ship.
Don't get captured (captured),
Cause you just might never quit.
You're the captain,
I hope you realize,
Don't be a fool,
Better open up your eyes.

You're the captain,
The leader of your ship.
Don't get captured (captured),
Cause you just might never quit.
You're the captain,
I hope you realize,
Don't be a fool,
Better open up your eyes.

(Instrumental)




8. YOU GOT THE DEAL

I lived my life one way too long.
Deal me straight, I can't go wrong.
A gambler's fate's in the cards he takes,
And now I know it's just a mistake.

Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.
Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.
You got the . . .

Left our dreams on a lonely road.
Come back here with a heavy load.
Fight our best when the chips are down.
You go your way, and I'll win this round.

Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.
Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.

You live your life for the dollar sign.
And all that you've made,
You're just buying time.
But time takes it toll,
It don't care who you are
You know you're marked for life
With your empty heart.

Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.
Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.

I don't know the game,
But you got the deal.
Don't know the game,
But you got the deal.
