Submitted by level Eagles
1. Run for Cover (4:13)
(Gary Moore)

Run - run - run - run

Run, you'd better find somewhere to run.
You've made a fool of everybody.
But you're not fooling anyone.

Hide, you always need someplace to hide.
But you can't hide from what's inside yourself.
You just can't face it.

Run, run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now.
You'd better find some other place to hide
from loneliness inside.

You'd better run.
Run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now,
before it gets too late.

Run, you're gonna run like out of time.
You let the suffering behind now.
And all the years have passed you by.

Lies, I used to listen to you.
Lies, but now I've learned to read between the lines.
I've got your number.

Run, run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now.
You'd better find some other place to hide
from loneliness inside.

You'd better run.
Run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now,
before it gets too late.

Run, run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now.
You'd better find some other place to hide
from loneliness inside.

You'd better run,
run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now.
You'd better find some other place to hide
what's eating you inside.

You'd better run,
run for cover now.
You'd better run for cover now.
Yeah.

Run for cover.
Run - run - run - run,
run - run - run - run,
run - run - run - run.
Yeah.
2. Reach for the Sky (4:46)
(Gary Moore)

Sometimes it seems,
that you've had more than enough.
As your life is going nowhere,
and you feel like giving up.
Sometimes you know,
that you can't take anymore.
When things are getting harder
than they've ever been before.

Don't lose your heart when things go wrong.
You know what to do now.
Just turn your back and carry on, come on.

Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.
Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.

Sometimes it seems,
like you've really lost your way.
When you're mind is full of doubt,
you've got nothing left to say.
You're going around in circles
like a man who's running blind.
But the world must keep on turning,
and it's leaving you behind.

Don't lose your heart when things go wrong.
You know what to do now.
You've got the strenght to carry on, come on.

Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.
Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.

Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
Reach for the it.

Don't lose your heart when things go wrong.
You know what to do now.
Just turn your back and carry on, come on.

Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.
Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.

Reach for the sky.
Come out with your hands up.
Reach for the sky.
Come out with your
hands up, hands up, hands up.

Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
Reach for the sky.
3. Military Man (5:40)
(Philip Lynott)

Papa take a look at your boy,
he's a military man.
Papa take a look at your boy,
he's crying.
Papa take a look at your boy,
he's a soldier.
Papa take a look in his eyes,
they're colder.

Papa take a look at your boy,
he's a military man.
Mama take a look at your boy,
he's dying.
Mama take a look at your boy,
he's fighting.
Mama take a look at your boy,
he's frightened.

They have trained your boy to kill.
And kill someday he will.
They have trained your boy to die
and ask no questions why.

Papa take a look at your boy,
take a look at your boy,
take a look at your boy.
He's a killer, yeah.

Mama take a look at your boy,
take a look at him now,
take a look at your boy.
He's a soldier, he's colder, he's older, mama.

Mama take a look at your boy,
obey the order.
Mama take a look at your boy,
like a lamb to the slaughter.

They have trained your boy to kill.
And kill someday he will.
They have trained your boy to die
and ask no questions why.

One day, I will write for you a lovesong mother.
As the children say, I love you, please hold me.
And you and I, we will live our life together.
Until that day when we die, I will love you mother.
I will always love you.

I'am writing from this war.
Oh mama, I don't know what I'm fighting for.
And have you seen my children?
God bless them, kiss them,
and tell them that I miss them.

See I'm frightened in the dark,
mama, mama.
The blood is ankle deep.
They have trained your boy to kill.
And kill someday he will.
They have trained your boy to die.

Mama take a look at your boy,
take a look at him now,
take a look at your boy.
He's marching,
he's a soldier.

Oh brother, oh mama.
He's on the street.
He's marching to the backbeat.
4. Empty Rooms (4:17)
(Gary Moore/Neil Carter)

Lonliness is your only friend.
A broken heart that just won't mend,
is the price you pay.

It's hard to take when love grows old.
The days are long and the nights turn cold,
when it fades away.

You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You'll never know the reason why she's gone.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.

You see her face in every crowd.
You hear her voice, but you're still proud,
so you turn away.

You tell yourself that you'll be strong.
But your heart tells you,
this time you're wrong.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.

You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You'll never know the reason why she's gone.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
5. Out of My System (4:01)
(Gary Moore)

You're out of reach, you're out of touch.
This time baby you've run out of love.
You're out of sight, you're out of mind.
Another heartache I've left behind.

It doesn't make any difference
where you go from here.
Too many times you've been running
I was here, over and over again.

Well I've got you out of my system.
I've got you out of my soul.

We've been through this a thousand times.
Too many partners for your perfect crimes.
You turned your back when I was down.
Well this time baby I won't be around.

It doesn't make any difference
what you do or say.
This time it's over forever.
I'm on my way,
don't wanna see you again.

Well I've got you out of my system.
I've got you out of my soul.
Well I've got you out of my system.
And now I'm right outside your control.

It doesn't make any difference
where you go from here.
Too many times you've been running
I was here, over and over again.

Well I've got you out of my system.
I've got you out of my soul.
Well I've got you out of my system.
And now I'm right outside your control.
I've got you out of my system.

Well I've got you out of my system.
Out of my system.
I've got you out of my soul.
Out of my soul.

Well I've got you out of my system.
6. Out in the Fields (4:17)
(Gary Moore)

It doesn't matter
if you're wrong or if you're right.
It makes no difference
if you're black or if you're white.

All men are equal
till the victory is won.
No colour or religion
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.

Out in the fields.
The fighting has begun.
Out on the streets.
They're falling one by one.
Out from the skies.
A thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.

It doesn't matter
if you're left or to the right.
Don't try to hide behind the cause,
they want to fight.

There'll be no prisoners taken
when the day is done.
No flag, no uniform
ever stopped the bullet from a gun.

Out in the fields.
The fighting has begun.
Out on the streets.

They're falling one by one.
Out from the skies.
A thousand more will die each day.
Death is just a heartbeat away.

There's no communication,
noone to take the blame.
The cries of every nation,
they're falling on deaf ears again.

Out in the fields.
Out in the fields.
They're falling one by one.
Out in the fields.
No flag has ever stopped
the bullet from a gun.

Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
A heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
Death is just a heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.
A heartbeat away.
Out in the fields.

In the fields.
The fighting has begun.
Out on the streets.
They're falling one by one.
Out from the skies.
A thousand more will die each day.

OUT!
7. Nothing to Lose (4:41)
(Gary Moore)

You live your life in a state of confusion,
never finding your way.
You've had the breaks,
but you're so disillusioned.
You only live for today.

You never stop for a red light,
you never even try.
You're on the wrong side of midnight.
Too fast to live, but too young to die.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Keep on singing the blues.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing to lose.

You say that you've got a hot reputation.
You never built it on trust.
I say you're part of a lost generation.
You got left in the dust.

You never stop for a red light,
you never even try.
You're on the wrong side of midnight.
Too fast to live, but too young to die.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Keep on singing the blues.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Keep on singing the blues.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing to lose.

Yeah, nothing to lose.

You never stop for a red light,
you never even try.
You're on the wrong side of midnight.
Too fast to live, but too young to die.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Keep on singing the blues.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Keep on singing the blues.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
No, no, you've got nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Nothing, nothing, nothing.
Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
You've got nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Keep on singing the blues.
Nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Keep on singing the blues.
You've got nothing to lose.

Keep on rockin' and rollin'.
Nothing, nothing, nothing.
Keep on singing the blues.
You've got nothing to lose.
8. Once in a Lifetime (4:18)
(Gary Moore)

I never met a woman
who could make me feel the way you do.
'Cause when I look into your eyes,
you don't know what I'm going through.

I was looking for someone to turn to,
something I'd never had before.
And then you came into my life,
now I can open any door.

Once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.
Once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.

I never met a girl before
who could understand a man like me.
'Cause when I hold you in my arms,
I just know that this was meant to be.

I was looking for some understanding,
something I'd never had before.
And then you came into my life,
now I can open any door.

Once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.
Once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.

Once in a lifetime.
Just once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime.

I was looking for someone to turn to,
something I'd never had before.
And then you came into my life,
now I can open any door.

Once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.
Once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.

Once in a lifetime
that I could ever find someone like you.
Just once in a lifetime
I could ever find someone like you.

Once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime.
9. All Messed Up (4:52)
(Gary Moore/Neil Carter)

The party's over, I can't drink no more.
My head is hurtin', I'm looking for the door.
But it's so hard to find, so hard to find.

Walk to my car on my hands and my knees.
Hand in my pocket, I'm looking for the keys.
But they're so hard to find.

Look at my son, he's no friend of mine.
Reach for my shades before I go blind.
Maybe tomorrow I don't wanna know.
All messed up with no place to go.

I'm seeing double, the whisky's to blame.
I'm having trouble remembering my name.
So hard to tell, it's so hard to tell.

Can't get no sleep, there's a quarrel and fight.
I'm not sure if I'm dead or alive.
So hard to tell.

Look at my son, he's no friend of mine.
Reach for my shades before I go blind.
Maybe tomorrow I don't wanna know.
All messed up with no place to go.

I can't believe it's really me in the mirror.
Feel like I'm falling of the rails,
looks like a hellhouse on my tail.

Look at my son, he's no friend of mine.
Reach for my shades before I go blind.
Maybe tomorrow I don't wanna know.
All messed up with no place to go.

All messed up with no place to go.
All messed up with no place to go.
All messed up with no place to go.

All messed up,
all messed up,
all messed up with no place to go.
All messed up with no place to go.
10. Listen to Your Heartbeat (4:31)
(Gary Moore)

Outside the rain is falling.
Inside it feels so cold.
A view from a broken window,
faces that look so old.

Every trick in the book you have tried,
to make ends meet.
Just remember those nights that you cried,
there was nothing to do, but lie awake and

Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.
Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.

Outside the rain is falling.
Inside it feels so cold.
A view from a broken window,
faces that have grown so old.

Every trick in the book you have tried
to make ends meet.
Just remember those nights that you cried,
there was nothing to do, but lie awake and

Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.
Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.

Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.

You thought the mourning served out years ago.
There's no more records on the radio,
no place to go.

Every trick in the book you have tried,
to make ends meet.
Just remember the nights that you cried,
there was nothing to do, but lie awake and

Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.
Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.

Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.
Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of your soul.

Listen to your heartbeat.
Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain.
Listen to your heartbeat.
