1. My Own Game

I was born, proud and free.
To seek the life ahead of me.
When I was ten, I became a man.
Started working on my own plan.
Got more desire.
My ambition.
I'm out in front, I lapped them all.
Form on my feet, 'cause I can't fall.
I can't lose at my own game.
Try to break me, but it's not the same.
I make the rules, I make the claim.
I can't lose at my own game.
No one helps me, I work alone.
Play my fingers to the bone.
This game I play, is not a chance.
I play to win, like a quick romance.
No chain will bind me, I'm feeling free.
Always do just what I please.
I'm out in front, I lapped them all.
Firm on my feet, 'cause I can't fall.
I can't lose at my own game.
Try to break me, but it's not the same.
I make the rules, I make the claim.
I can't lose at my own game.
I can't
Try to me
I make the rules, I make the claim,
I can't lose at my own game.
not the same
I can't lose at my own game.
I can't lose at my own game.

2. Falling In Love

You got me on the edge of my seat,
Not knowing if it's day or night.
Sideways on a one-way street,
Starin' at the neon lights.
I wonder if we think the same thoughts,
Whenever we're apart.
The feeling's getting stronger and stronger,
With every beat of my heart.
You and me, once in a lifetime, second to none,
Ohhh, can't you see, now and forever, you'll hear me saying that:
I'm falling more in love with you.
Can't you see:
I'm falling more in love with you.
I wake up in the still of the night, calling your name out loud.
Standing in the pouring rain, floating on silver cloud.
Waiting 'till I'm with you again, seems like a lifetime away.
And if you feel the way that I feel, you'll always be hearing me say:
You and me, once in a lifetime, second to none,
Ohhh, can't you see, now and forever, you'll hear me say that:
I'm falling more in love with you.
Can't you see:
I'm falling more in love with you.
You and me, once in a lifetime, second to none,
Ohhh, can't you see, now and forever, you'll hear me say that:
Don't you know:
I'm falling more in love with you.
Can't you see:
I'm falling more in love with you.

3. Waitin' For The Nite

Now I see your face so clear,
Both of us were so sincere.
Pushing back feelin's when we met.
Thought I couldn't have you anyway,
Blinded by the light of day.
You weren't so easy to forget.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
The second time I saw you,
There was nothing else my heart could do.
You cast your magic spell my way.
All of the sudden I, I think I know the reason why,
We always play the games we play.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night,
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
-solo-
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows, now the time is right.
Hidin' in the shadows, waitin' for the night.
Hidin' in the shadows...

4. Steal A Heart

It's the same old story, of a lonely heart.
And after dark is the time to start.
Looking for another, only thing to do.
Gotta keep on talkin', 'til I see it through.
'Til I see it through.
I got a feelin',
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I don't care if it's wrong or right.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
So you better hold on tight
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I'm gonna cut you like a knife.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
You better hold on for your life.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I won't give up without a fight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
Got to keep on searchin', for that heart of gold,
'Cause a heart like that, can't be bought or sold.
Knockin' at your back door, you better let me in.
Throw your cards on the table, 'cause I'm playing to win.
I got a feelin',
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I don't care if it's wrong or right.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
So you better hold on tight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
I'm gonna cut you like a knife.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
You better hold on for your life.
I'm
I'm
So you better hold on tight
I'm
I'm gonna cut you like a
I won't give up without a fight.
I'm gonna steal a heart tonight.
Gonna steal it tonight...

5. Turn To Stone

When you fall in love, better hold your breath,
'Cause there's a green eyed lady, that can love you to death.
She's got a reputation, of one who cares.
Don't you know it's you she dares.
 Take one look, and your turned to stone.
Don't look back, when you're all alone.
Take one look, and you're turned to stone.
Don't look back, when you're all alone.
'Cause you'll turn your heart to stone.
She lived in a cottage, beyond the hill.
Waiting for the perfect time, to test your will.
Show no emotion, show no fear.
Don't you ever give her, what she holds so dear.

6. Raggedy Man

 Raggedy man keep pushin' and pushin',
There's no tellin' when you'll come up for air.
Please don't emote the things that you're feelin',
There ain't a single one here who cares.
Raggedy man keep workin' and workin',
For nickels and dimes, one by one.
Don't bother saving for the future,
Spend it all on a bottle of fun.
One step forward, and two steps back,
Seems like lately, that's where I'm at.
One step up and two steps down,
There's no tellin' when I'll come around again.
Raggedy man keep tryin' and tryin',
Keep tryin' to be everything that you can.
You hold the future right before you,
Let it slip right through your hands.

7. Rock Doktor

 It's so heavy I can feel it,
Mash my skin down to the bone.
I don't know how long I can stand it,
Call my Doctor on the phone.
I've got symptoms of passion,
All the usual signs,
Lord I feel like I'm dying.
I need a shot...of Rock & Roll,
Rock Doctor.
I need a shot...of Rock & Roll,
Rock Doctor.
It gives me the chills, it makes me shake.
I try to stand, but I fall down.
My fever's making me bake,
My head is starting to pound.
I think I'm slipping under,
Closer to my grave.
I'm beginning to wonder,
If there's a cure that can save.

8. Land Of The Gun

I remember when my work was simple,
Snagging robbers with hooks.
Now the game has a different angle,
Chasing international crooks.
Working undercover, in the south of France.
Cold sweat breaking out, ask for one more chance.
Live my life,
In the land of the gun.
All my life,
Living on the run.
Always sleep with one eye open.
In and out of every back door.
Smith & Wesson cleaned and loaded,
In case they're coming back for more.
Jet planes racing,
Half way round the world.
Searching for the lady,
With the half a million dollar pearl.
