Not Fragile tracks

Lyrics


1. NOT FRAGILE

Comin to you cross country
Hoping boogie's still allowed
You ask do we play heavy music
Well, are thunderheads just another cloud...
And we do
Not fragile, straight at you

Then we vanish to the night
Still in your ears but out of sight.

Not Fragile.
Don't think we feel hurt or wounded
Or our egos are showing through
Its our world that's been disrupted
And our strength reflects from you
Well it's true
Not fragile over you

Try us when you're getting down
Feelin high or just hangin round.

Not Fragile.
The times we travel in our lives
Will make us hard and give us drive
We may seem distant most of the time
But many thoughts are still on our minds.

Not Fragile




2. ROCK IS MY LIFE, AND THIS IS MY SONG

It's a hurried up life
But it's the life I choose
No use in asking me to slow down
Cause I got nothing to lose

But time and time is all I've got
You know I born standing up with a guitar in my hand
I'm not trying to come on like hollywood
But hollywood is what I am

When we come into a new town
Everybody's there
When we play our music
Hands are in the air

When the music's over
You wonder where we are
I'm standing in the silence
With my old guitar

Rock is my life and this is my song
It's a crying shame
That some of us have not survived
No use in asking how it happened
But very few are left alive

I just wanna keep on makin' music
We gotta keep on keepin' on
You're only as good as your last record
I know that someday we'll be gone, gone

When we come into a new town
Everybody's there
When we play our music
Hands are in the air

When the music's over
You wonder where we are
I'm standing in the silence
With my old guitar

Rock is my life and this is my song
When we come into a new town
Everybody's there
When we play our music
Candles light the air

When the music's over, over
You wonder where we are
I'm standing in the silence
With my old guitar, my only friend
Rock is my life and this is my song




3. ROLL ON DOWN THE HIGHWAY

We rented a truck and a semi to go
Travel down the long and winding road
Look on the map I think we've been here before,
Close the doors let's roll once more.

Cop on the corner, look he's startin' to write
I don't need no ticket so I screamed out of sight,
Drove so fast that my eyes can't see,
Look in the mirror is he still followin' me?

Let it roll down the highway
Let it roll down the highway,
Roll, roll.

Look at the sign, we're in the wrong place
Come on boys, let's get ready to race
454 coming over the hill
The man on patrol, is going to give us a bill.

The time's real short, you know the distance is long
I'd rather have a jet but it's not in the song
Climb back in the cab, cross your fingers for luck
We gotta keep movie' if we're going to make a buck.

Let it roll down the highway, . . .




4. YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET

I met a devil woman,
She took my heart away
She said I had it comin' to me,
But I wanted it that way

I think that any love is good lovin'
And so I took what I could get, mmm
Oooh, oooh, she looked at me with big brown eyes
And said...

You ain't seen nothin' yet
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
Here's something that you never gonna forget
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet

And now I'm feelin' better,
'Cause I found out for sure
She took me to her doctor
And he told me of a cure
He said that any love is good love
So I took what I could get, yes, I took what I could get
Oooh, and she looked at me with big brown eyes
And said...

You ain't seen nothin' yet
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
Here's something, here's something that you're never gonna Forget
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
You need educated

Any love is good love
So I took what I could get,
Yes, I took what I could get
And then, and then, and then she looked at me with big Brown eyes
Said...

You ain't seen nothin' yet
Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
Here's something, here's something,
here's something, mama, you're never gonna forget
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nu-nu-nu-nothin' yet
You ain't been around

You ain't seen nothin' yet
I know I ain't seen nothin' yet
I know I ain't seen nothin' yet
Baby, Baby, Baby
You ain't seen nothin' yet




5. FREE WHEELIN'

(Instrumental)




6. SLEDGEHAMMER

For days I have tried to forget you
And not care where you are
No matter where you are

But fables are not made from memories
I got to try to find
A way to ease my mind

You're like a sledgehammer
Clickin', clickin, on my mind
You're like a sledgehammer baby
You been beating on my mind

You're like a sledgehammer
You been sneakin' all the time, woooow
You're like a sledgehammer baby
You been beating on my mind

For nights I have gone without sleeping
I wonder where you are
I wonder where you are

But I must build my castle with daydreams
And watch 'em fade away
Watch'em fade away

You're like a sledgehammer
You been beating on my mind
You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting from behind

You're like a sledgehammer baby
You been sneakin' all the time, woooow
You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting on my mind

You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting on my mind
You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting from behind




7. BLUE MOANIN'

Blue moanin', go down so good
You do your livin'
And it's a what you do
Did you listen to what your daddy said
Or did you find a moment
And just crept away

Blue blue moanin'
It's on it's way to you
Blue blue moanin'
It's really comin' through
You're always right
Til the payment's due
It's due, now you're blue

Go down dancin'
With what they call the crowd
So some relaxin'
When you've done your time

When you've done your time
And you pay your dues
You find them on your doorstep
Now it's time to move

Blue blue moanin'
It's on it's way to you
Blue blue moanin'
It's really comin' through
You're always right
Til the payment's due
It's due, now you're blue

Blue blue moanin'
It's on it's way to you
You know it's comin'
Blue blue moanin'
It's really comin' through
You're know you're right
Til the payment's due
Now it's due, I find you blue




8. SECOND HAND

No reason to get excited
But I feel a change blowin' in the wind
Everythin's filled with confusion
So let's start the world over again
And get it second hand, slightly used, soiled
Get it second hand, carelessly abused, spoiled

I see you're looking to find new horizons
But there are footsteps everywhere you go
And somebody else has been asunder
The sunshine has wilted and crawls?

I'll get it second hand, I'm dazed and confused
Turn back the second hand, I pay all my dues
I got rid of my dues and I'm all fixed up
Watch me talk about it, wooo

Second hand, yeah used, second hand
I got it second hand, all used up
Second hand
Second hand




9. GIVIN' IT ALL AWAY

You took my heart
And you went away
We said goodbye
And we're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

My mind's made up
Nothing left to say
We're on our own
And we're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

Givin' it all away
Happens everyday
No matter what we say
We're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

I'm all alone
I've had my day
Didn't work out
And I'm givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

There's no tomorrow
There's no today
Life's lost all meaning
And I'm givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

Givin' it all away
Happens everyday
No matter what we say
We're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

Givin' it all away
Happens everyday
No matter what we say
We're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

Not fragile, fragile, fragile...
Not fragile, fragile, fragile...
Not fragile, fragile, fragile...
