Track Name: Rock’n’ Roll survivor
I’ve been up and I ‘ve been so down
I’ve been flying high my soul been spinning round
I’ve been a wise man and a sinner, lord I’ve been the fool
and every single day I’ve been paying my dues

I’m a rock’n’roll survivor, I’ve been rockin’every day
I’m a rock’n’roll survivor, I’ve been living for the stage

Like a wolf out in the wild, trying to make my way back home
trying to tell you baby, wont be back no more

I’m a rock’n’roll survivor, I’ve been rockin’ every day
I’m a rock’n’roll survivor I’ve been living for the stage
I’m a rock ‘n’ roll survivor,I’ll be rockin’ to my grave
Track Name: My hog and me
Hitting the open road,yeah my hog and me
hot black asphalt as far my eyes can see

I left my woman standing at the door way back home
now it’s just me and my hog and it’s shinny new chrome

I can’t help the way ,the way that I am
I just hit some more throttle and ride to the land of the new rising sun
Track Name: Angel of mercy (Rock’n’roll queen)
Wanna tell you about my baby,my rock’n’roll queen
an angel of mercy she gives me everything
every time I keep her close
she sets my heart on fire

I wanna rock you, roll you till the night is through
hold you, touch you all I wanna do
roll you, rock you, make you feel so good
come on baby, don’t say maybe, all my love is true

Let the light shine down on me, I give into her love
will she make me cry, or will she make me fall
will she give my wings of love that only take me higher

Come on baby don’t say maybe tonight, oh yeah
Let me show ya all the things I can do you so right
come a little closer, let me put out the light
let me whisper in your ear, all the things you wanna hear
heaven waits for us so near
Track Name: Think it over
I know she is leaving, I can see it in her eyes
I need her, it breaks me deep inside

she wears a long black dress, her eyes are shining bright
and lord I know I’m losing her tonight

I said please wont you think it over
she said oh baby, no baby don’t you try

I said please, wont you think it over
she said oh baby no baby don’t you cry
Track Name: Loser for love
Loser for love baby, my luck is turning round (x2)
Loser for love , please don’t let me down

Make you laugh or cry, the devils in your town (x2)
Loser for love baby, please don’t let me down
Track Name: You got me
Well I’ve been down so many times before
love of a woman put me on the killing floor
I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to do
I’m sinking low, all because of you

you know you got me, you got me down on my knees
I’m begging you baby, oh baby please

I heard all the stories that the other man say
I know you know the rules of this loving game
I’m asking you babe, stop running around
looking for you takes up all of my time

you know you got me, you got me down on my knees
I’m begging you baby, oh baby please

I give you my money and everything
I give you my time , hang around with me
I give my loving ,I give you my dreams
I’m telling you baby, oh baby please
Track Name: Keep on keeping on
Look at the good times only when you get too far
when you thing you are breaking down and your body falls apart
wait out ‘till the morning to find out where you are
sometimes it gets too crazy when you wait out in the dark

and if your soul is sinking low and you got no place to go
try to remember ,keep on keeping on

Now you are running around the world, chasing on a dream
you are living on desire, breaking at the seams
you got no place to lay your head, no one to call your friend
can you hear thunder rolling, this might be the end

now your soul is sinking low , you got no place to go
remember baby, keep on keeping on

now the world is going mad, you feel so sad inside
and all your hopes turn in to fears and tears you can’t hide
all the loving turns to hate, your friends will let you down
and now you see that all your dreams are crumbling on the ground

now your soul is sinking low, you got no place to go
try to remember keep on keeping on
Track Name: Dream song - part 1 (Going to sleep)
I was dreaming of the past, all my good times never last
I was dreaming of you, now you gone, nothing I can do

Love and life is not for ever, it gets waisted in the wind
all I have is just today and all the things that I can dream

I was flying through time and space
lost and lonely, trying to join the human race
I was home I was on the run, I’ll be there when judgment day comes

Love and life is not for ever, it gets waisted in the wind
all we have is just today and all the love that we can give
