Not fragile Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level MankindDestroyer
1. Not Fragile (4:05)
Comin' to you across country
Hoping boogies still allowed
You ask do we play heavy music
Well are thunderheads just another cloud, we do
Not Fragile, straight at you

Then we vanish to the night
Still in your ears but out of sight
Not Fragile

Don't think we feel hurt or wounded
Or our egos are showing thru
It's our world that's been disrupted
And our strength reflects from you
Well its true
Not Fragile, over you

Try us when you're getting down
Feelin' high or just hangin' round
Not Fragile

The times we travel in our lives
Are hard and give us drive
We may seem distant most of the time
But many thoughts are still on our minds
Not Fragile
2. Rock Is My Life, and This Is My Song (5:00)
It's a hurried up life
But it's the life I choose
No use in asking me to slow down
Cause I got nothing to lose

But time and time is all I've got
You know I born standing up with a guitar in my hand
I'm not trying to come on like hollywood
But hollywood is what I am

When we come into a new town
Everybody's there
When we play our music
Hands are in the air

When the music's over
You wonder where we are
I'm standing in the silence
With my old guitar

Rock is my life and this is my song
It's a crying shame
That some of us have not survived
No use in asking how it happened
But very few are left alive

I just wanna keep on makin' music
We gotta keep on keepin' on
You're only as good as your last record
I know that someday we'll be gone, gone

When we come into a new town
Everybody's there
When we play our music
Hands are in the air

When the music's over
You wonder where we are
I'm standing in the silence
With my old guitar

Rock is my life and this is my song
When we come into a new town
Everybody's there
When we play our music
Candles light the air

When the music's over, over
You wonder where we are
I'm standing in the silence
With my old guitar, my only friend
Rock is my life and this is my song
3. Roll On Down the Highway (3:56)
We rented a truck and a semi to go
Travel down the long and winding road
Look on the map, I think we've been here before
Close the doors, let's roll once more

Cop on the corner, look he's startin' to write
I don't need no ticket so I screamed out of sight
Drove so fast that my eyes can't see
Look in the mirror, is he still followin' me?

Let it roll
Down the highway
Let it roll
Down the highway
Roll, roll

Look at the sign, we're in the wrong place
Move on boys, let's get ready to race
454 Coming over the hill
The man on patrol is going to give us a bill

The time's real short, you know the distance is long
I'd rather have a jet but it's not in the song
Climb back in the cab, cross your fingers for luck
We gotta keep movin' if we're going to make a buck

Let it roll
Down the highway
Let it roll
Down the highway
Roll

Let it roll
Let it roll
Let it roll
Let it roll

Let it roll
Down the highway
Let it roll
Down the highway

Let it roll
Down the highway
Let it roll
Down the highway
Roll, roll, roll

Let it roll
Down the highway
Let it roll
Down the highway
Roll, roll, roll
4. You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet (3:54)
I met a devil woman
She took my heart away
She said I had it comin' to me
But I wanted it that way

I think that any love is good lovin' and
So I took what I could get mmh
Oooh, oooh, she looked at me with big brown eyes
And said

You ain't seen nothin' yet
B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
Here's something that you never gonna forget
B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet

And now I'm feelin' better
'Cause I found out for sure
She took me to her doctor
And he told me of a cure

He said that any love is good lovin'
So I took what I could get
Yes, I took what I could get
And then she looked at me with big brown eyes and said

You ain't seen nothin' yet
B-b-b-baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
Here's something, here's something that you never gonna forget
You know, you know, you know you just ain't seen nothin' yet

Any love is good lovin'
So I took what I could get
Yes, I took what I could get
And then, and then, and then she looked at me with those big brown eyes and said

You ain't seen nothin' yet
Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet
Here's something, here's something, here's something that you never gonna forget
Baby, baby, baby, baby, you just ain't seen n-n-n-nothin' yet

You ain't been around!
You ain't seen nothing yet
That's what she told me
She said I need to go to school

I know I ain't seen nothing yet
I know I ain't seen nothing yet
Ooohooo, ooohooo, ooohooohooo
Ain't that something going around then?

Better be good
But I ain't seen nothing yet
5. Free Wheelin' (3:44)
6. Sledgehammer (4:30)
For days I have tried to forget you
And not care where you are
No matter where you are

But rainbows are not made from memories
I got to try to find
A way to ease my mind

You're like a sledgehammer
You keep hittin' on my mind
You're like a sledgehammer baby
You been hittin' from behind

You're like a sledgehammer
You been sneakin' all the time, woooow
You're like a sledgehammer baby
You been hittin' on my mind

For nights I have gone without sleeping
I wonder where you are
I wonder where you are

But I must build my castle with daydreams
And watch 'em fade away
Watch'em fade away

You're like a sledgehammer
You been hittin' on my mind
You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting from behind

You're like a sledgehammer baby
You been sneakin' all the time, woooow
You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting on my mind

You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting on my mind
You're like a sledgehammer baby
Always hitting from behind
7. Blue Moanin' (3:42)
Blue moanin', you're down so blue
You do your livin'
And it's what you do
Did you listen to what your daddy say
Or did you find it boring
And just drift away

Blue blue moanin'
It's on it's way to you
Blue blue moanin'
It's really comin' through
You're always right
Til the payment's due
It's due, now you're blue

You go down dancin'
To what they call the grind
You do some relaxin'
Now that you've done your time

When you've done your time
And you think you're through
You find them on your doorstep
Now it's time to move

Blue blue moanin'
It's on it's way to you
Blue blue moanin'
It's really comin' through
You're always right
Til the payment's due
It's due, now you're blue

Blue blue moanin'
It's on it's way to you
You know it's comin'
Blue blue moanin'
It's really comin' through
You're know you're right
Til the payment's due
Now it's due, I find you blue
8. Second Hand (3:30)
No reason to get excited
But I feel a change blowin' in the wind
Everythin's filled with confusion
So let's start the world over again
And get it second hand, slightly used, soiled
Get it second hand, carelessly abused, spoiled

I see you're looking to find new horizons
But there are footsteps everywhere you go
And somebody else has been asunder
The sunshine has wilted and crawls?

I'll get it second hand, I'm dazed and confused
Turn back the second hand, I pay all my dues
I got rid of my dues and I'm all fixed up
Watch me talk about it, wooo

Second hand, yeah used, second hand
I got it second hand, all used up
Second hand
Second hand......
9. Givin' It All Away (3:46)
You took my heart
And you went away
We said goodbye
And we're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

My mind's made up
Nothing left to say
We're on our own
And we're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

Givin' it all away
Happens everyday
No matter what we say
We're givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

I'm all alone
I've had my day
Didn't work out
And I'm givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

There's no tomorrow
There's no today
Life's lost all meaning
And I'm givin' it all away
Givin' it all away

Chorus

Chorus twice

Not fragile, fragile, fragile...
Not fragile, fragile, fragile...
Not fragile, fragile, fragile...
