All lyrics by Roy Dean Brown

Wanna Be Loved

I don´t look too close when I see
My fate inside your eyes
I paid up my debts on that road
I served out all my time

But when the night comes down
You know how it used to be
Y´ remember
And time will stop to run from you and me

Can´t you see
You can´t have what used to be
Cause it´s gone and died away

Chorus:
I just wanna be loved by you tonight
I don´t wanna be told it´s not right
I just wanna be loved by you tonight

Now do you understand
tonight we run away
To make a crazy try
when nothing´s left to save

Cause when the night comes down
You know how it used to be
Y´ remember
And time will stop to run from you and me

Can´t you see
You can´t have what used to be
Cause it´s gone and died away

 

Chorus

One Of A Kind

If you come out of nowhere
Leaving it all behind
You know you won´t regret it
Lettin´ it go

A joker is a wild card
You draw it all alone
If you spin the wheel of fortune
Where will it go

Are you up to take a shot
I´m gonna try it
Givin´ everything you got
A climb to the sky
Comin´ round ready or not
Be one of a kind
one of a kind

Chorus:
One up, one time
Gotta go and catch a dream
One up, one time
To be one of a kind
Taking off for a ride

I´m gonna find my destination
You know the good thing´s not gone yet
Well it´s time to make some changes
Be one of a kind, one of a kind

Coming on getting stronger
Music is turned up high
Tonight will last forever
It won´t pass you by

Maybe it´s not so easy
Just made out of flesh and blood
But I´d rather die while standing
Than down on my knees

Are you up to take a shot
Make it this time
Givin´ everything you got
Right back in the fight
Comin´ round ready or not
Be one of a kind
one of a kind

Still Hate To Lose

It was me again I was on my way back home
Like I´d died away and come back from the dead
With your face before me the moonlight on the road
I saw a shadow risin´
I couldn´t get out of my head

I don´t play for keeps
I´m the one that says goodbye
I always tell the truth
tough guys never lie
I´ve never put my life
In the hands of someone else
Like lovers do, but I
Still hate to lose
Still hate to lose

You can say his name I know he´s right for you
You´ll never feel alone he´ll know just what to do
All you want come true a life time made for two
Rech out in the night he´ll still be next to you

I don´t play for keeps
I´m the one that says goodbye
I always tell the truth
tough guys never lie
I´ve never put my life
In the hands of someone else
Like lovers do

Solo

Let me feel your touch before I go away
Now I need your arms your body next to mine
There´s still time enough to go our different ways
Spend the night once more at the stranger´s side

Sister Sister

There are no partin´ words
There is just a goodbye
No guarantees
Out in the dead of night
Building your life on sand
Givin´ it all away
What you do
What you do in the dark
Noone can change

Waitin´ for a stranger
To get you through the night
But you´re not to blame
You say it´s to survive

Chorus:
You are runnin´ out of time
The price is up too high
The price you pay to survive
Sister, sister will you pay the price

Do you get what it´s worth
When they don´t know your name
When they´re takin´ the best
Killin´ what you have left
you´re payin´ out the price

´Nother night on the street
You can´t take it alone
What you get
Is all you can keep
They come and go

Waitin´ for a stranger
To get you through the night
But you´re not to blame
You say it´s to survive

Chorus

Ball Of Fire

Up on the tightrope
Up on the razor´s fine edge
Maybe you´ve seen the storm building
maybe today´s too late

Wherever you see
Whatever you do
A light´s in the sky again

Chorus:
Die in a ball of fire
A fireball from the sky
Livin´ to die in a ball of fire
A world on fire that will burn, burn, burn

Waitin´ on the horizon
Fiery trails, smoke and light
Flashes of white in the night sky
It couldn´t be stopped this time

But noone can hide
When night becomes day
A fire on its way again

Die in a ball of fire
A fireball from the sky
Livin´ to die in a ball of fire
A world on fire that will burn, burn, burn

Call Of The Wild

A call in the silence
of the night
Will tell you, tell you, tell you what the time is tonight
Up high, high, mountain high
You follow, follow, follow the foot tracks
in the snow

Where the eyes are glowin´
Out of sight
Where the moon is blazin´

Chorus:
It´s the Call of the wild
I hear a cry
It´s here tonight
It´s the Call of the wild
Here tonight

You climb from the valley
Through the trees
Chasin´ down on the cry
up high leadin´ on

When you climb this mountain
Mountain side
You´re gonna cry the call

Chorus

No Man´s land

I´m livin´
I´m dyin´
Down in no man´s land
Concrete parkin´ lots
Hard core paradise

Four walls, two windows
The towers block the sun
Way down on the pavement
People walk alone

Day and night in no man´s land
Locked up inside no man´s land
Empty streets glass and steel
Black snd white nothin´s real

Chorus:
Tomorrow is callin´
Callin´ right now
But there´s no tomorrow
Inside no man´s land

I´m dreaming
I see a nightmare walk through me
A smokin´ gun beside me
triggered in my brain

I´m lyin´, I´m bleeding
Out in no man´s land
I hear the sirens comin´
Keep the concrete clean

Day and night in no man´s land
Locked up inside no man´s land
Empty streets glass and steel
Black snd white nothin´s real

Tomorrow is callin´
Callin´ right now
But there´s no tomorrow
Inside no man´s land

Out on the Line

Trouble is lookin´ for you
She plays both sides of the street
If you´re lookin´ for love
In one special way
For every taste she´s got a price

Don´t you know
Trouble has run into you
She´ll make you pay
She´s the one
Trouble´s run into you
You´ll find out what I mean

Chorus:
Out on the line
On the thin line
The line between heaven and hell
She draws the line
Draws the thin line
The line between heaven and hell

The rough side of downtown
Where the rough trade makes it´s home
She offers some excitement
When it´s drk and you come all alone

Don´t you know
Trouble has run into you
You´ll find out what I mean

Chorus

Cold Shoulder

Remember you were all alone
Losin´ your soul to the night
And when I held you close
I took what was wrong made it right
And I know you had no place
No place where you could lay your head
And I was In the pourin´ rain
The last helpn´ hand you had left

You don´t look up you stare at the floor
Sippin´ champagne from your glass
Maybe I´m standin´ too close to ignoe
I´ll reach out I´ll rip off your mask

Chorus:
Cold shoulder, you sent me the message
You you shot me down, yeah
Cold shoulder you really have showed me
You can´t look me in the eye

Remember I´ll be around
Waiting to meet you again
Believe me it´s me you´ve found
You´ll have to keep lookin´ away
And someday when we´re introduced
You´ll act like you don´t know my name
Now listen you´ve got no´thin´ to lose
Who´d ever bring trouble your way

You look at me your eyes go straight through
Small talk is all you can do
Just look away then head for the door
You don´t give a damn anymore

Chorus

Nobody´s Fool

I see the faces
The lights in the street
And how a cold rain falls
Blowin´ along

Back in the doorway
Waitin´ alone
Fists in my pocket
Don´t know right from wrong

Nobody told me what I had to learn
I´m nobody´s fool, nobody´s fool

Chorus:
Damned if you don´t
Damned if you do
Don´t ask for nothin´
You´re nobody´s fool

You don´t need anyone
Anybody´s rule
Make it or break it
You´re nobody´s fool

I´ll live my live out
Just takin´ what comes
I push my deals
I break at ten to one

Out on the sidewalk
I´m makin´ my time
Everyone I see
Is somebody´s fool

Nobody told me what I had to learn
I´m nobody´s fool

Chorus:
Damned if you don´t
Damned if you do
Don´t ask for nothin´
You´re nobody´s fool

You don´t need anyone
Anybody´s rule
Make it or break it
You´re nobody´s fool
