1. If it Ain't Gonna Change (3:34)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

I Ain't got a lot to say
And I don't like this game you're playing
I really need you baby
What I thought could be forever
Now I realize will never
Ever be the same again

And I know
That I have to regret
When you go
And there's no one instead

If it ain't gonna change
I'll be loosing my mind
The way to your heart
Is so hard to find
I it ain't gonna change
And if you won't be back some day
I can't carry on
If it ain't gonna change some day

Hey girl you hold the key
To unlock me from these chains
If there's a chance that we can make it
Then why don't we just take it baby
It could be so easy you see
And I know
All the things that I said
When you go
It's too late to regret

Chorus

Now tell me do I ever cross your mind
Do you think of me
You're gonna give me all your love right now
That's all I need oh yeah

Girl you know
There's a place in my heart we could go
We could start from the start

Chorus
2. Please Don't Leave Me (acoustic version) (3:20)
In the summer we'd be crazy
We'd fool around all the time
Oh how I loved that girl
When she was mine
But now she'd left me
For another guy
And it really brought me down
For without that girl
I was lost and found

Oh darling please don't hurt me this way
Oh darling please don't leave me
Oh darling please don't hurt me this way
Oh darling please don't leave me

Now I get messed up
And I fool around
But there's no fun anymore
They say times must change
But I'm not so sure
Lost lovers of summer
As we go our separate way
Remember memories you owe
Won't bring back those special days

[Chorus]
3. In the Minds of the Young (4:12)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer


Now tell me how to ease the pain
As I head down the road
That leads to no where
And tell me how to breathe again
How to save my soul
Won't you show me

Everytime these dark clouds appear before me
I believe it's the end of the line
Everytime these bitter tears are falling
Then I see what I've lost
I will find

In the minds of the young
There's a will to go on
'Cause they're the ones to keep this together
And our world is betrayed
Now that love's gone away
Their visions are gonna hold on forever
In the minds of the young

Now that I've been searching
Beyond these walls of thoughts
To seek my failure
All I found was just you and I
On a collision course
Against our own nature

There're so many words that are left unspoken
Are we a part pf a spiritual game
And one too many promises has been broken
But as long as our future remains

Chorus

I wish that I could fly away
On a wing and prayer
'Cause I don't wanna face the truth
I'd get down on my knees and pray
To the beauty of love
And the power of youth

Chorus
4. Too Late Too Loud (3:31)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Back when I was younger
Just a blue-eyed restless kid
Hangin' round the radio
In fact that was all I did
Mama said you better son
Take good care of school
Wasn't one they counted on
I was crazy like a dog on the loose

At the age of fifteen
Just another sixties' breed
No one really understood
What music meant to me
Boy you get your education
Daddy said to me
Thought I'd end up as the black sheep
Of the family

Wild as the river
I freaked down the floor
Feeding the fever
As he kicked in the door and said

Too late too late too loud
I can't take it
Too late too late too loud
Just turn it down
And then I rocked him to the ground
Yes I did

Nineteen years and travelling
Got a suitcase in my hand
No money in the bank
You see but I don't complain
Me and the boys are playing hard
Running out the line
We're out there killing time
We're just shaking out some brains

Racing the crowd
Got that rock'n roll feeling
Everyone shouts
But nobody's screaming

Too late too late too loud
I can't take it
Too late too late too loud
Now just turn it down

I can't take it
I can't take it

Too late too late too loud...
5. Say the Word (4:43)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Don't tell me when you walk away
Just close the door
And leave it all behind
Love's colder than a winter's day
I know the score
Guess you're the hurting kind

Can't you see you turn my life around
Why don't you set your loving free
Don't you know a heart is sacred ground
But love has got a hold on me

And so we had our ups and downs
Been 'round and 'round
Fuzzing and fighting
Thought I was gonna leave this town
This house of pain
In which I'm hiding

I've been down this road some times before
Guess I'm gonna go there again
And a time or two
I've faced the floor
But you've got my mind on the bend

Say the word I long to hear you say
Say the word I hunger for
There'll never be another one
Another one like you
Say the word I wanna hear you say
Say the word come talk to me
Now take me past the point of rescue
Cause love will rescue me
Rescue me

Now woman if you want me to
I'd run to you
To be forgiven
And if I could come across to you
I'd finally have found
My piece of heaven

I would have the will to carry on
I would be determined to be strong

Chorus

Can't you see you turn my life around
Why don’t you set your loving free
Don’t you know a heart
Is sacred ground
But love has got a hold on me

This could be love
If you could give in to me
We could be good together
Ride the storm
Make our hearts
Beat as one

Chorus
6. '39 (Queen cover) (3:17)
Lyrics and music by: Brian May

In the year of 39 assembled here the Volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen
And the night followed day
And the story tellers say
That the score brave souls inside
For many a lonely day sailed acloss the milky seas
Neeer looked back, never feared, never cried

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
Write your letter in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

In the year of 39 came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though thier hearts so heavily weigh
For the earth is old and grey
To a new home we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes in your eyes cry to me

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All the letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand
For my life
Still ahead
Pity me
7. Heartbeat From Heaven (3:49)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Been knocking at your door babe
I wonder where you've been
Now what're you trying to cover girl
Why didn't you let me in
You're driven by desire
You see I read between the lines
So why do you feed the fire baby
When things could work out fine

Well I just wanna touch you baby
Feel your heat inside
Don't you turn your back on me
I need your love right here tonight

I'm a heartbeat from Heaven
On a hide-out from Hell
I get high on your reply
Baby say you will
Tonight and forever
Stay by my side
Well I just wanna take you girl
On a never-ending ride

And each and every day girl
I'm down that widing road
It's like this desperate heart of mine'll
Switch to overload
You're animal emotion
I'm watching all your moves
You leave me in a cold sweat babe
Now what're you trying to prove

And everytime I call you
There's no answer to the phone
I'll be there to hold you girl
If you find your way back home

I'm a heartbeat from Heaven
On a hide-out from Hell
I get high on your reply
Baby say you will
Tonight and forever
Stay by my side
Well I just wanna take you girl
On a never-ending ride
8. How Does it Feel (4:22)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

See her walking in the street
Big city bitter sweet
Into that poisened rain
She's among familiar faces
In this dirty rotten place
Where only lies remain

She's got the heart of an angel
Her soul open wide
But the hunger has waken the devil inside her

What is it like on this trip you're rinin' baby
Now don't you see there's no safety in hidin'

How does it feel
You've been away too long
Out of touch
Left out on your own
How does it feel
Do you see right from wrong
Lady Lust you're a long way from home

Now she finds her way around
At the lost and never found
She's got to go with the flow
There's a rope around her neck
On the road to her regret
She walks the straight and narrow

In the eyes of the world
She's a nobodys job
A broken down girl
She's stuck on the wild side

What's it like on this trip you're ridin' baby
Now don't you see there's no safety in hidin'

How does it feel
You've been away too long
Out of touch
Left out on your own
How does it feel
Do you see right from wrong
Lady Lust you're a long way from home

Somebody said what you give is what you get
But there's some who gets nothing in return
Out of luck
Down on love
She's getting fed up with anything she does
9. I'll be There (3:02)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

Nothing is simple
There's no perfect cure
Don't take for granted
What some take for sure
There are no heroes
And even no wonderland
This is for real babe
It's no farytale
Sometimes to easy to go off the rails
I'll give you comfort when you're feeling cold
One you can run to when there's no hands to hold

I'll be there when it's closing in
I'll be there try to keep you from falling
Take you into my temple of dreams
Now and then when it seems
That there's not enough love to go round

This is our world
This is insane
Life passing by
Just like a runaway train
Now we're just traveling
On a ship of fools
These are the times
Days of no trust
Love turns to hatred and diamonds to dust
I'll be a shelter be your compagny
Whenever you're lonely you can lean on me

I'll be there when it's closing in
I'll be there try to keep you from falling
Take you into my temple of dreams
Now and then when it seems
That there's not enough love to go round
10. Savage Heart (piano version) (4:12)
Lyrics & music by: Atkins/Hammer

I walk the lonely plains
Drift into the distance
Out on a rainy shore
Somewhere in time
Recall a thousand names
All of those we're missing
Out there I'm searching for
A little peace of mind

Who am I to rely on a broken dream
Just a loner in the night

Whenever we loose someone
Whenever we say goodbye
And after the fire's gone
When every flame has died
There will beat a savage heart

Another soldier falls
Dies for God and country
When there's no time for talking
Its time for the guns
Out where the wild wind blows
I'm free as a bird
If I could only transfer
Dreams into words

I'm aware; I'll be there, when the morning comes
Guided by the inner light

Whenever we loose someone
Whenever we say goodbye
And after the fire's gone
When every flame has died
There is still a savage heart
