Worlds Forgotten Boy
My road is long, it lingers on.
You stare at me and I'm holding on.
My eyes are dim, my breath is weak
And tears stain my cheeks.
Up there so high where the air is so thin,
You look for signs. am I giving in?
All for me you bring crashing down,
And still you condemn me.
Oh no no shame. all my life I'll not betray.
I'll not shed one tear for all my life,
For ever more, for ever more.

Sound tow'rs will crumble down,
I see ev'rything is broken down.
His heart is breaking and recorded in sound.
We need a miracle joy, we need a miracle boy,
A rock and roll toy, a rock and roll joy,
A rock and roll boy!

Now I know what's up for game.
What's up for grabs, what's down again.
See all for me is crashing down,
The end of ev'rything, ev'ry decent human being.
Oh no no shame. all my life I'll not betray.
I'll shed all my fears all my life,
For ever more, for ever more.

Sound tow'rs will crumble down,
Well, ev'rything will be broke down.
See, his heart is breaking and recorded in sound.
We need a miracle joy, we need a rock and roll boy,
I need a rock and roll joy, a rock and roll toy,
A rock and roll boy!

The road is long and it lingers on.
But my eyes are dim, my breath is weak
And tears stain my filthy cheeks.

Sound tow'rs will crumble down,
I see ev'rything is broken down.
Well my heart is breaking and recorded in sound.
I need a miracle joy, I need a miracle now,
That rock and roll boy!
Yeah! yeah! yeah, I'm hangin' on a miracle tree,
Yeah, hangin' like a noose for you and me.
Yeah! said yeah! right now!back to top

One Night, One Chance
One night, one chance, she do most anything,
One night, one chance, she do and dream
Sweet dreams for you.

Woke up in the morning, I said boy, wake up.
Nothing will be done if you don't get up.
Silence is guilty and the truth can talk.
If you got the legs, boy, come on, let's walk.

One night, one chance for you.
She'd dream sweet dreams for me and you.

Take me out this morning, come on, let me sleep.
Been hard pressed to keep it. better hold on me.
But silence is guilty and the truth be told.
If you got the legs, boys, come on, let's walk.

Is it over? one night she dreamed for you.
One night, one chance for you.
One day, one night
She dreamed sweet dreams for you.

Woke up this mornig and now the dream was
Out of sight.
Prison walls are breakin' down, and my
Threadbare back is whipped right.
Silence is guilty and the truth can talk.
Well yes, I got the legs, boys, and i,
Yes I walked.
And it's over, I'm glad it's over.
Are you glad it's over? it's over for one night.

One chance for sweet dreams, oh, for you,
For one night, for one chance of success
She'll sream and scheme for you.
Oh, oh, one night, oh, one chance she'll
Dream sweet dreams for you.
One night, one life too. her hole existence
Has fallen in two.back to top
