1. Don't Take Me for a Loser (4:17)
(Gary Moore)

Baby, I used to be the kind anyone could burn.
But now I've left those days behind,
and it's time for the wheel to turn.
Baby, I used to be so easy to take for a ride.
But now I've learned to play the game,
and my eyes are always open wide.

I was the one who would listen to you,
when you handed me all of your lies.
But those days have gone, and it's time you caught on,
'cause this time nothin's gonna get by.

Don't take me for a loser.
Don't take me for a loser, 'cause I'm gonna win.
Don't take me for a fool, baby.
'Cause it would take a fool to lose you again.

Baby, I used to be the one who could run around.
But now my heart is in my head,
and nothing you have said can pull me down.
One day, I told you everything would come back on you.
And now you've had all your chances,
and your one night romances are through.

I was the one who would listen to you,
when you handed me all of your lies.
But those days have gone, and it's time you caught on,
'cause this time nothin's gonna get by.

Don't take me for a loser.
Don't take me for a loser, 'cause I'm gonna win.
Don't take me for a fool, baby.
'Cause it would take a fool to lose you again.

I was the one who would listen to you,
when you handed me all of your lies.
But those days have gone, and it's time you caught on,
'cause this time nothin's gonna get by.

Don't take me for a loser.
Don't take me for a loser, 'cause I'm gonna win.
Don't take me for a fool, baby.
'Cause it would take a fool to lose you again.

Don't take me for a loser.
Don't take me for a loser, 'cause I'm gonna win.
Don't take me for a fool, baby.
'Cause it would take a fool to lose you again.

Don't take me for a loser.
Don't take me for a loser, 'cause I'm gonna win.
Don't take me for a fool baby.
'Cause it would take a fool to lose you again.

Don't take me for a loser.
Don't take me for a loser, 'cause I'm gonna win.
Don't take me for a fool baby.
'Cause it would take a fool to lose you again.
2. Always Gonna Love You (3:56)
(Gary Moore)

It's not the same when I look in her eyes.
The magic's not there.
And when I look, I realize
what we could have shared.

I'm always gonna love you,
if loving means forever.
I'm always gonna want you.
I don't think I could ever
just forget the love we had.

It's not the same when she's here in my arms,
or the smile on her face.
And even though with all of her charms,
she can't take your place.

I'm always gonna love you,
if loving means forever.
I'm always gonna want you.
I don't think I could ever
just forget the love we had.

It's not the same when I look in her eyes.
The magic's not there.
And when I look, I realize
what we could have shared.

I'm always gonna love you,
if loving means forever.
I'm always gonna want you,
if loving means forever.

I'm always gonna love you,
if loving means forever.
I'm always gonna want you,
if loving means forever.

I'm always gonna love you.
3. Wishing Well (4:06)
(Rodgers/Kirke/Yamauchi/Bundrick/Kossoff)

Take off your hat, kick off your shoes.
You know you ain't goin' anywhere.
Spend all your time singin' your blues.
You know you ain't goin' anywhere.

You've always been a good friend of mine,
but you always say farewell.
And the only time that you're satisfied,
is with your feet in the wishing well.
In the wishing well.

Throw down your gun, you might shoot yourself.
Or is that what you're tryin' to do?
Put up a fight you believe to be right,
and one day the sun will shine through.

You've always got somethin' to hide.
Somethin' you just can't tell.
And the only time that you're satisfied,
is with your feet in the wishing well.
In the wishing well.

But I know what you're wishing for.
Love in a peaceful world.
Love in a peaceful world.
Love in a peaceful world.

You've always been a good friend of mine,
but you always say farewell.
And the only time that you're satisfied,
is with your feet in the wishing well.

In the wishing well.
In the wishing well.
Everybody's got a dream.
And they take it to the wishing well.
Everybody's got a dream.
Wishing well.
4. Gonna Break My Heart Again (3:19)
(Gary Moore)

You've been turnin' me upside down
since the day I met you.
But no matter how hard I try,
I can't seem to forget you.
You've been turning me inside out
since the day I found you.
So why do I spend all of my time
just hangin' around you?

I don't care what you say to me.
From the way you been behaving
now it's plain to see.

You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
Like you broke my heart before.

Everybody tells me
that I'd be better off without you.
So why do I spend all of my time
just thinking about you?

I don't care what you say to me.
From the things that I been hearing
now it's plain to see.

You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
Just like you broke my heart before.

I don't care what you say to me.
From the way you been behaving
now it's plain to see.

You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
Just like you broke my heart before.

You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
Just like you broke my heart before.

You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
You're gonna break my heart again.
5. Falling in Love With You (4:52)
(Gary Moore)

When I'm close to you, I feel my heartbeat
telling me that you're the one for me.
Darling, I don't understand the reasons,
I just know that this was meant to be.

And when I look into your eyes I see it,
everything that I've been searchin' for.
Darlin', I don't understand this feeling,
I just know it's growing more and more.

Because I'm falling in love with you.
It's the easiest thing for me to do.
Yes, I'm falling in love with you - it's true.

I lie awake at night and think about you.
I wake up to another lonely day.
I know you'll never feel this way about me,
no matter what I do or say.

And I'm falling in love with you.
It's the easiest thing for me to do.
Yes, I'm falling in love with you.

You say you're not the one for me.
That I am just a dreamer.
I try so hard to make you see
that someone like you
could make my dreams come true.

Because I'm falling in love with you.
It's the easiest thing for me to do.
Yes, I'm falling in love with you, it's true.

Yes, I'm falling in love with you.
It's the easiest thing for me to do.
Yes, I'm falling in love with you.
It's the easiest thing for me to do.

Yes, I'm falling.
Yes, I'm falling.
Yes, I'm falling.
Yes, I'm falling in love with you.
Falling, I'm falling, I'm falling.
6. End of the World (6:53)
(Gary Moore)

There is only tomorrow,
nothing but sorrow waiting for you.
Don't look for any mystery,
it's only history we're passing through.
The threat from the east
growing stronger with each passing hour.
All systems are failing,
and talks with the west have turned sour.

The leaders are waiting for blood on their hands.
Playing with weapons they don't understand.
Could it be this time we'll see the end of the world.

Each day brings a new danger,
love is a stranger we used to know.
Outside, the sun goes on rising.
But we're realizing there's not long to go.
The storm clouds are forming,
take heed of the warning to come.
The Kremlin has told every nation
there's no place to run.

The leaders are waiting for blood on their hands.
Playing with weapons they don't understand.
Could it be this time we'll see the end of the world.
The end of the world.
The end of the world.
The end of the world.

The threat from the east
growing stronger with each passing hour.
All systems are failing,
and talks with the west have turned sour.

The leaders are waiting for blood on their hands.
Playing with weapons they don't understand.
Could it be this time we'll see the end of the world.

The end of the world.
The end of the world.

The end of the world.
(Repeat to end)
7. Rockin' Every Night (2:48)
(Gary Moore/Ian Paice)

Allright!
Let me tell you 'bout a place I know.
The kind of place where the kids all go.
Come along baby you can shake off your blues.
Don't be shy, you've got nothin' to lose.

We'll be rockin' every night,
rollin' till the break of day.
Rockin' every night,
rollin' till the break of day.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Let me tell you 'bout a girl I met.
She made it hard for me to forget.
She said ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies.
So I gave it to her straight between the eyes.

We were rockin' every night,
rollin' till the break of day.
Rockin' every night,
rollin' till the break of day.
That's right, we were rockin'.
Allright!
You know what I mean.

I don't care if they call the cops.
I'm gonna keep on rockin' till the party stops.
You can leave if there's to much noise.
You know what they say,
boys will always be boys.
That's right.
You know what I mean.

Rockin' every night,
rollin' till the break of day.
We were rockin' every night,
rollin' till the break of day.
That's right, yeah!

I don't care if the neighbours shout.
I don't care if they kick me out.
I'll come right back and knock down the door.
'Cause when I start to rock,
you know I always want more.
Always want more, just like my name says.
Yeah, that's right. That's right.

Keep on rockin'. Keep on rollin'.
Keep on rockin'. Keep on rollin' every night.
8. Cold Hearted (5:12)
(Gary Moore)

I'm a man with something to say.
I don't need nobody to show me the way.
I don't care if it's day or if it's night.
Ain't nobody gonna teach me wrong from right.

'Cause every hungry woman
has tried to make a fool out of me.
Every hungry woman,
stick around and baby you'll see.
I'm cold hearted.
I'm so cold hearted.

I'm a man with a mind of my own.
I don't need nobody, I'm happy all alone.
I don't care if it's day or if it's night.
Ain't nobody gonna teach me wrong from right.

'Cause every hungry woman
has tried to make a fool out of me.
Every hungry woman,
stick around and baby you'll see.
I'm cold hearted.
So cold hearted.
I'm cold hearted.
So cold hearted.

Let me show you why they call me cold hearted, baby.

Every hungry woman
has tried to make a fool out of me.
Every hungry woman,
stick around and baby you'll see.

I'm cold hearted.
So cold hearted.
I'm cold hearted.
So cold hearted.
Baby, I tell you I've got a heart that's made of stone.
9. I Can't Wait Until Tomorrow (7:47)
(Gary Moore)

I've been searchin' for something I might never find.
I've been looking for something I have left behind.
I've been searching every day in the rising sun.
I've been trying to find my way till the day is done.
I've been searching.

I've been reaching for something I might never touch.
And I've been dreaming of something that I want so much.
I've been counting all the tears in the falling rain.
I've been trying to hide my fears, but it's all the same.
And I don't know if I'll ever pass this way again.

I can't wait until tomorrow.
It's something I might never see.
I can't wait until tomorrow,
for tomorrow never waits for me.
Tomorrow never waits for me.

I can't wait until tomorrow.
It's something I might never see.
I can't wait until tomorrow,
for tomorrow never waits for me.
Tomorrow just won't wait for me.
Tomorrow never waits for me.

I've been searchin' for something I might never find.
And I've been looking for something I have left behind.
I've been counting all the tears in the falling rain.
I've been hiding all my fears, but it's all the same.
And I don't know if I'll ever pass this way again.

I can't wait until tomorrow.
It's somethin' I might never see.
I can't wait until tomorrow,
for tomorrow never waits for me.

I can't wait until tomorrow.
It's not the place I wanna be.
I can't wait until tomorrow,
for tomorrow just won't wait for me.
