  1. Too Scared To Run (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    Too scared I could not run
    I could not make a sound
    Lights were flashing
    My whole life passing
    My feet were stuck to the ground

    Too light to call it night
    Too dark to call it day
    Too scared to stay and fight
    Too scared to run away

    Too scared to run
    Too scared to run away

    So scared I could not move
    I could not make a sound
    There were people running
    People shouting
    Flashes all around

    To scared I could not think
    My eyes could not scarcely see
    My heart was racing
    My legs were shaking
    They could not carry me

  2. On The Rebound (Ballard)

    On the rebound, on the rebound
    That's how you felt for me
    That's how you changed my life
    You cut me like a knife

    On the rebound, on the rebound
    You came, you saw, you took
    It only took one look
    And lady, I was hooked

    On the rebound - it's a replay

    Your love was on the rebound
    On the rebound
    You came and took my soul
    You came and left a hole
    Where your love used to be

    On the rebound, on the rebound
    You like to drown in your tears
    And after all these years
    You give your pain to me

    On the rebound - you came to repay
    On the rebound - to set you free
    On the rebound - to pray for me
    Your love was on the rebound

  3. Chasing Shadows (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    Seen from the shadows
    Deep in the night
    I know youíre near
    But youíre nowhere in sight
    Seen from the darkness
    Down in the streets
    I hear your footsteps
    I hear your heartbeat
    Oh, I can hear your heartbeat

    A misty corner
    Away from the light
    I know youíre near
    But youíre nowhere in sight
    On my shoulder
    I feel youíre near
    I feel you moving
    But you never appear

    Chasing shadows
    Chasing something I canít see
    Chasing shadows
    Will I ever be free
    Chasing shadows
    Enter to take this pain away
    Chasing shadows
    Iím just a victim of the night
    The night

    Hooked in darkness
    You play at your game
    I hear you breathing
    Call at your name
    Closer, closer, I feel you so near
    Youíre just a shadow
    But you never appear

    Shadows in the night

    Seen from the darkness
    Deep in the night
    I know youíre here
    Youíre nowhere in sight
    On my shoulder
    I know youíre near
    I feel you moving
    Will you ever appear

  4. Prisoner (Lance/Cooper/Riparetti)

    Time has come to say goodbye
    To the broken memories
    They're locked inside like prisoners
    In a place that no-one sees

    Stayed up late with a friend of mine
    Southern Comfort till dawn
    We talked about the things of love
    Shoud've known from
    The start you arrived

    I'm just a prisoner
    Don't wanna lock myself away
    Prisoner - I get so lonely, lonely
    I'm a prisoner
    Just when do you think love will stay
    It walks right out on you - out on you

    Tired blood runs through my veins
    But I can't get no sleep
    You lock my heart
    And whisper the walls
    This place I've got to leave

    The sky is crying, it's raining
    Like the storm in my heart
    There ain't no music playing
    'Cause I'm leaving, leaving

  5. Sell Your Soul (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    I got the sound that's still the reason
    I got the sound good and right
    I've spent my life with rock 'n' roll
    I wouldn't tell a lie
    But if you want to touch the freedom
    Just let the music take you whole
    I'm possessed by rock 'n' roll
    There's a thunder
    See it and wonder
    Had to play the game

    You know we're gonna live forever
    You know we're never gonna die
    You see it's written
    Across the sky tonight
    I only tell you why
    Because it's been going on
    It's ancient
    We got a spotlight just for you
    I'm possessed by rock 'n' roll
    Hear me callling
    Stars are falling
    Taking me away

    Stand up - shout it out
    I'm possessed by rock 'n' roll
    Stand up - shout it out
    Sell your soul
    Stand up - shout it out
    Let the music take you whole
    Stand up - shout it out
    Rock 'n' roll

    Can't you see we're getting stronger
    Getting stronger every day
    There ain't nothing gonna stop us
    There ain't no way
    It's like a rolling god of thunder
    You know it's never gonna stop
    You know it's gonna drag you under
    See me soaring
    Thunders roaring
    Things afraid again

  6. That's The Way It Is (Bliss)

    I've been thinking about
    What you said last night
    And for all your fine words
    You still don't have it right
    'Cause that's the way that it is
    And you won't ever change
    You can scream at me
    But the powers that be
    Won't ever hear your voice
    'Cause they're lost
    In their own importance
    No, they'll never hear your voice
    'Cause that's the way that it is
    And you won't ever change it
    Now I've heard all your stories
    Of how the few can be strong
    How you'll fight to the end
    Just to prove me wrong
    'Cause that's the way that it is
    And you won't ever change it
    So don't come cryin' to me
    If your fanciful schemes
    Don't turn out like you planned
    'Cause you're chasing
    After something
    That keeps slipping
    Through your hand

  7. Think It Over (Sloman/Bolder)

    I've had all I can take
    I've taken just too much
    I've made a big mistake
    That put me out of touch
    I don't think I can face
    Another single day
    Without a companion
    To take this pain away

    So many tears ago
    It's then you walked away
    It could've been the end
    But I knew babe
    I had to tell myself
    There'll be another day
    She wants to go to glench
    But don't you know

    Can't you see
    There's a chance for you and me
    Think it over
    Don't believe
    In the things that may not be
    Think it over
    I got to think it over

    Forgetting the result
    I can't give it in
    Whisper startle you
    But it's not over
    You have to face the truth
    I'm still in love with you
    I have to make you see
    But it's not over

    I got to think about it baby

  8. Hot Night In A Cold Town (Cushing-Murray/Littlefield)

    Sonny's out strollin', amblin' slowly
    Washed in amber street lights
    Mexican wind blows in
    Taking hold of Angelina's hair
    And her halo
    Motors runnin', mufflin' the sound
    Of the streets
    A big deal's goin' down in another

    Hot night in a cold town
    Got yourself a hot night
    In a cold town

    Johnny's got spare change
    In his pocket
    A ring and a watch to hock
    For a sweet ride
    A one way ticket
    Hidden in his shoe
    These last few hours
    He says heíll spend them with you
    Heís leaving home without a trace
    No forwarding address
    Heíll never know
    How to face another

    Well the losers and the groovers
    And the corner boys
    Are hangin' around
    Running in and out of doorways
    Up and down the stairways
    Stray dogs headed for the pound

    Hot night in a cold town
    Got yourself a
    Hot night in a cold town
    Itís just another hot night
    In a cold town

  9. Hot Persuasion (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    You know you light my candle
    You know you load my gun
    You're way too hot to handle
    There's nothing we ain't done

    Give me your love
    Give me that hot persuasion
    I can't get enough
    Give me that hot persuasion

    I'm full of hot persuasion
    You face me upside down
    A love for all occasions
    You won't catch me fooling around

    I need to know you're near me
    I need you by my side
    You keep me tiger ready
    You keep me up all night

  10. Running All Night (With The Lion) (Farr/Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    Iíve been waiting for my lady
    One hour - she finally came
    Sheís been walking by my table
    And Iím thinking
    Whatís this viscious game
    To be the only one whoís waiting
    To play that white witches game
    And I knew that she was waiting
    To cut loose on the town and meet
    Somebody new for a change

    When youíre running
    All night with the lion
    Running all night with the lion...

    I may not recall exactly
    Her eyes can hurt as seen now
    She was sitting at my table
    And Iím making out like a clown
    Oh, sheíll make me very happy
    When she showed her fallen again
    And I knew she was waiting
    To cut loose on the town and meet
    Somebody new for a change

    Rock íní rolling ladies
    Good life to the games you canít win
    She picked right up my table
    Till itís time to go in
    Thereís got to be something heavy
    If only youíd show me a sign
    When something said
    She was waiting
    To cut loose and meet
    Somebody new for a change

  11. Tin Soldier (Marriot/Lane)

    I am the little tin soldier
    That wants to jump into your fire
    You, oh, look in your eye
    A dream passing by in the skies

    I don't understand
    All I need is to treat me like a man
    I ain't no child, take me like I am

    I've got some love that belongs to you
    I'll do anything that you want me to
    I'll sing any song that you want me
    To sing to you

    All I need is your whispered hello
    Smile smelting the snow
    Nothing heard
    Your eyes, oh, deeper than time
    I see a love that won't
    Rhyme without words
    So now bless my way
    I need help to show me things to say
    Give me your love
    Before mine breaks away

    I don't need no aggrevation
    I just got to make you
    I just got to make you understand

    I just wan't some reaction
    Someone to give me satisfaction
    I love you

  12. Son Of A Bitch (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    Hear the son of the bitch
    He's the son of a fool
    Sign of the times
    No exception against the rule
    He's down on his luck
    He's down on his knees
    Cut really deep
    He knows how to bleed

    Hear the son of the dark
    You'll see him run with the pack
    He won't look you in the eyes
    He'll stab you in the back
    The son of the dark
    Only runs with the pack
    He'll take your life
    He won't look back

    Son of a - he's a son of a bitch
    He's a son of a - he's a son of a bitch

    Hear the woman of the streets
    She never learned how to cry
    She'll spread her wings
    He'll never fly
    Woman of the night
    She hangs like a bat
    She'll scratch at your eyes
    Fight like a cat

    Hear the lost, hear the lonely
    Hear the fool, that won't get to see
    Hear the lost, hear the lonely
    And don't pity me, don't pity me

    Son of the bitch
    He's a son of a - Oh, the son of a bitch

    Listen to the son of the poor
    The son of the rich
    The son of the dark
    The son of the bitch
    Woman of the night
    Hangs like a bat
    She'll scratch at your eyes
    She fights like a cat

    Hear the son of the bitch
    He's the son of a fool
    A sign of the times
    No exception against the rule
    Down on his luck
    Down on his knees
    Cut really deep
    So he knows how to bleed

    He's a sign of the times
    He's the son of a, son of a... bitch
    The son of a bitch

  13. Valley Of The Kings (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    I've been thinking about her

    Ooh...my love

    In the Valley of Kings

  14. I'm Alive Again (Box/Daisley/Goalby/Kerslake/Sinclair)

    So many questions
    So many lies
    Truth has been hidden
    Behind your eyes
    But I'll survive
    Oh, I'm alive

    Look for the answers
    Try to understand
    Fight when you have to
    Run if you can
    But I'll survive
    Yeah, I'm alive

    Look closely at the stars
    I'm a man of broken dreams
    But I'm alive again
    Oh yeah, I can bleed
    I'm a man of broken dreams
    When I'm alive again
    Oh yeah, come see me bleed
    I'm a man of broken dreams
    But I'm alive again

    Don't take no prisoners
    That's what you said
    I was burned, I was broken
    Lost and left for dead
    But I'll survive
    Oh, I'm alive

    Look closely at the stars
    I'm a man of broken dreams
    But I'm alive again
    Oh yeah, I can bleed
    I'm a man of broken dreams
    But I'm alive again
    Oh yeah, I'm alive again
    I'm alive again
    Come see me bleed
    I'm alive again
    I'm alive again
