Time Has Come
Heart Of Stone
On The Loose
Love Chaser


@SONG: The Final Countdown

We're leaving together,

But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown...

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall

Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so.


@SONG: Rock The Night

I've gone through changes

I've gone through pain
But there's not enough reason for me to go insane
I know the feeling, when it grows
I'm in a rage up from my head down to my toes.

You know it ain't easy

Running out of thrills
You know it ain't easy
When you don't know what you want.

Rock now, rock the night

'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
You'd better believe it's right.

I know my limit
Just what it takes
When things ain't good enough
I just pull the brake
Sometimes it's easy
Sometimes so tough
But just have one thing clear
I can't get enough.


@SONG: Carrie

When light goes down, I see no reason

For you to cry. We've been through this before
In every time, in every season,
God knows I've tried
So please don't ask for more.

Can't you see it in my eyes

This might be our last goodbye

Carrie, Carrie, things they change my friend

Carrie, Carrie, maybe we'll meet again

I read your mind, with no intentions

Of being unkind, I wish I could explain
It all takes time, a whole lot of patience
If it's a crime, how come I feel no pain.


@SONG: Danger On The Track

I was heading for the mountains

I had saved so much for you
And in the town I left behind me
There was nothing left to do.

I knew that you were waiting

For me to share your life
Cause I told you when I left, that
When I come back you'll be my wife.

But someone was waiting

In the shadows of the night
Someone was waiting
It just didn't feel right.

Danger on the track

Something told me there were
Strangers on my back
And I was so right.

Maybe I should surrender

Maybe I should give it up
But the strength I had inside
Told me you can never stop.

The men wanted to break me

Steal and bring me down
But I fought for you and later
They were lying on the ground.


@SONG: Ninja

Tell me the story, tell me the legend

Tell me the tales of war
Tell me just one time,
What it was like before
Bring me the feeling, right in that moment
When a heart for battle cries
Find me the treasure where the legend lies.

If I were a noble ancient knight

I'd stand by jour side to rule and fight
It will always feel the same
When I call out your name.

Ninja survive, in dreams I walk by your side

Ninja survive, with you there's no need to hide.

A handful of sayings are more than a reason

For me to feel this way
I'd like to be near you
Maybe for just one day
So tell me the legend, tell me the story
Tell me the tales of war
Tell me just one time
What it was like before.


@SONG: Cherokee

They lived in peace, not long ago

A mighty Indian tribe
But the winds of change,
Made them realize, that the promises were lies.

The white man's greed, in search of gold

Made the nation bleed
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn.

Cherokee - marching on the trail of tears.

They were driven hard, across the plains

And walked for many moons
Cause the winds of change,
Had made them realize, that the promises were lies.

So much to bear, all that pain

Left them in despair
They lost their faith
And now they hade to learn
There was no place to return
Nowhere they could turn.


@SONG: Time Has Come

Long for the sailor, beneath the skies

Long for the white dove, no matter where she flies
Long for the stranger you know so well.

Pray for the soldier, who's wounded bad

Pray for the dreamer, he's still so sad
Pray for the stranger you know so well.

Cause I'm coming home.

Now the time has come

For me to come back home.

Long for the eagle, on wings so strong

Long for the hunter, he won't be long
Long for the stranger you know so well.


@SONG: Heart Of Stone

I've told you once and I've told you twice

Wait for that day, when our love will rise
To that song that brought our hearts together.

Even though you're mistreating me

I know the girl that you used to be
For me those days were meant to last forever.

Time after time I'm wondering why

Am I to be all alone
Day after day I pray that you'll stay
Cause you've got a heart of stone.

I walk the streets like a broken man

Oh I wish that you would understand
Even though you're still the one I wait for.

I guess in love there's no guarantee

Sometimes it's not what it seems to be
Even though you're still the one I care for.


@SONG: On The Loose

Running out on the streets

He lives from day to day
Looking for someting to do
He needs to get away.

Hoping that maybe one day

He could be someone
Praying that maybe someday
He could be number one.

In his world of make believe

He always tends to be

On the loose, so young, so tough, so wild

On the loose, again.

Dreaming, dreaming about

All the things he'd like to do
Trying, trying so hard
To make it all up to you.


@SONG: Love Chaser

Someone's at your door tonight

Someone wants your love
Is it real or just imagination
You decide to wait inside 'til the break of dawn
In dreams you see yourself seeking affection.

He'll know just who you are

He'll know just where you've been
He'll know just what to do.

Love chaser - If you look deep in his eyes

Then you're in for a big surprise
He can take your breath away
There's nothing you can do or say.

You can feel that someone's at your back

You can hear his pounding heart
But something tells you not to be afraid
Cause even in the darkest night
Someone's at your side
But when morning comes it all starts to fade away.

Fourth Of July
by Dave Alvin
Dave Alvin, "Every Night About This Time", Demon Records, 1987
X, "See How We Are", Elektra, 1987

Intro: G Em

G D Dsus4 C
She's waiting for me when I get home from work
C G Gsus4
But things just ain't the same
G D Dsus4 C
She turns out the light and cries in the dark
Won't answer when I call her name

On the stairs I smoke a cigarette alone
C D Dsus4
The Mexican kids are shooting fireworks below
G Em
Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July
G Em
Hey, baby, it's the Fourth of July

(same as first verse)

She gives me her cheek when I want her lips
And I don't have the strength to go
On the lost side of town in a dark apartment
We gave up trying so long ago

(repeat chorus)

Whatever happened, I apologize
So dry your tears and baby, walk outside
It's the Fourth of July

(repeat chorus)
