Rock City Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Desperation (2:43)
Been on the road for fourteen days,
Got six more left to go.
The rain is pounding down on my hood,
I got a heavy load in tow.
You been so cruel to your lover boy,
Had to get up, get away.
Don't need your lovin', don't want no babies,
I've had my thrills for the day.
Desperation roll me,
I'm rollin' over to you.
Desperation roll me,
I'm gettin' closer to you.
Been on the road for fourteen days,
And I ain't got a shirt to show.
The heat is pounding down on my back,
What a heavy load I tow.
Desperation roll me,
I'm rollin' over to you.
Desperation roll me,
I'm gettin' closer to you.
Desperation roll me,
I'm rollin' over to you.
Desperation roll me,
I'm gettin' closer to you.
Hey, hey, hey, all right
2. Warrior (3:49)
Into the darkness that all men must face,
Within the brief hours, of your life here on earth.
Pain thrashed into his life, the great prince stood firm,
Behind his high and mighty shield, awaiting his turn.
Shield at his side, cloak across his breast,
His love and his life, they put him through the test.
Shine on, shine on, in all of your glory.
Shield all your fears, release all your fury.
Shine, shine on, through the darkness and the pain.
Shine, shine on, Warrior.
Shine, shine on, through the wind and the rain.
Shine, shine on, Warrior.
Shield at his side, cloak across his breast,
His love and his life, they put him to the test.
Shine on, shine on, in all of your glory.
Shield all you fears, release all your fury.
Shine, shine on, through the darkness and the pain.
Shine, shine on, Warrior.
Shine, shine on, through the wind and the rain.
Shine, shine on, Warrior
3. Rock City (3:28)
Say hello to the city life,
Say hello to your dreams.
Say hello to the candy man,
Say hello to your rock 'n roll queens.
The painted ladies of the evening,
Will show you what you wanna see.
For a dime or a dollar,
Well, you can ride in a limousine.
Rock City, Rock City,
See what you wanna see.
Rock City, Rock City,
Be what you wanna be.
Rock City, Rock City,
See what you wanna see.
Rock City, Rock City,
Be what you wanna be.
Yeah!
Well all the fancy cars, and all the funky bars.
Feel the fire burnin' under your feet.
When the smoke clears honey, you ain't got no money.
Then you'll start to feel the heat.
Rock City, Rock City,
See what you wanna see.
Rock City, Rock City,
Be what you wanna be.
Rock City, Rock City,
See what you wanna see...oh my god !
Rock City, Rock City,
Be what you wanna be...yeah, yeah.
Oooh, come on, uh
4. Overdrive (4:12)
I'm travelin' in my car, I call my automobile,
Something's sayin', boy you got to go on.
I'm feelin' overdrive, you're sittin' at my side.
Can you hear my wheels begin to squeal ?
I can't go no more,
My foot's to the floor.
We'll be lucky to get out alive,
In overdrive, in overdrive.
I'm feelin' overdrive, you're sittin' at my side.
Can you hear my wheels begin to burn ?
I got my foot to the floor,
My hands on your clutch.
I'm gonna make my pistons pump,
Right through the roof.
I can't go no more,
My foot's to the floor.
We'll be lucky to get out alive,
In overdrive, in overdrive.
I can't go no more,
My foot's to the floor.
We'll be lucky to get out alive.
In overdrive, in overdrive.
Yeah, come on.
Oh, hit the highway,
And don't look back.
Ah, can you feel my hot rod?
Oh yeah, oh yeah, come on.
Oh shake me, yeah, come on.
I'm in overdrive, look out, look out
5. Angel (3:37)
Get ready, stand steady,
We're gonna shoot you full of Rock 'n Roll.
You're goin' crazy, don't be lazy,
Ah, the boys are losin' control.
You're an angel with a broken wing,
You're an angel who was born to, born to swing.
Oooh yeah, I feel like a dog in heat.
Oooh yeah, I got a fire burning under my feet.
Get ready, stand steady,
The boys are on the run tonight.
The next town we'll be getting down,
We're gonna rock 'till broad daylight.
You're an angel with a broken wing.
You're a angel who was born to, born to swing.
Oooh yeah, I feel like a dog in heat.
Oooh yeah, I got a guitar burning under my feet.
Get ready, stand steady,
We're gonna shoot you full of Rock 'n Roll.
You're goin' crazy, don't be lazy,
Ah, the boys are losin' control.
You're an angel with a broken wing.
You're a angel who was born to, born to swing.
Oooh yeah, I feel like a dog in heat.
Oooh yeah, I got a fire burning under my feet.
Get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready, get ready...
6. Tokyo Rose (4:19)
They all called her Tokyo, the boys know her as Rose.
The game is not a good one, it's the only one she knows.
Jet black hair, lipstick glowin' red.
Caviar and bourbon, goin' straight to her head.
When you lay your money down, she'll play her games with you.
Don't gamble with you heart, she'll take it right from you.
She'll take you for a ride, with some wine and romance.
Gonna wind up face flat down, not a cent in your pants.
Tokyo Rose, Tokyo Rose, Tokyo Rose.
Back street crawler, is what she'll always be.
I can't live without her love, it's the cure for me.
Day after day, I was warned of the danger.
A little bit of love, give it away to strangers.
Tokyo Rose, Tokyo Rose, Tokyo Rose.
Tokyo, Tokyo Rose,
Tokyo, I wanna know, about you, Tokyo.
I wanna know, about you, Tokyo.
Tokyo Rose, Tokyo,
Tokyo Rose, Tokyo.
Mmmm, you sure are a strange one.
Hey, hey Tokyo.
Oh, never get too close.
Tokyo, hey Rose
7. Heart of Fire (3:00)
A tender lovin' woman, needs a hard lovin' man,
To give her, peace of mind, from the start.
Lovin' hard as a rock, kissin' soft as a roll,
Screaming, lightning, shooting straight through your heart.
Heart of fire, you're full of desire,
Burn your blues away.
Little heart breaker, you're such a, soul shaker.
Come and give your man what he's askin' for.
My cards are on the table, I'm ready, are you able?
I'll give you lovin', 'till you say no more, no more, no more.
Heart of fire, you're full of desire,
Burn your blues away.
Heart of fire, you're full of desire,
Burn your blues away
8. Gypsy Queen (3:56)
I've seen lightning, and I've fought fire,
But I've never, met a girl like you, no.
You possess a magic potion, you put a spell on me.
You're like the moon, sitting above a raging sea.
You're my gypsy queen,
You're my lovely dove.
You're my gypsy queen,
I don't care, if it's just lust.
Watch out, below, 'cause this girl is on the prowl,
She'll get you somehow.
She want's, some fun, traveling around from town to town.
She'll never settle down.
You're my gypsy queen,
You're my lovely dove.
You're my gypsy queen,
I don't care, if it's just love.
You're my gypsy queen,
You're my lovely dove.
You're my gypsy queen,
I don't care, if it's lust.
You're my gypsy queen,
You're my lovely dove.
You're my gypsy queen,
I don't care, if it's just love
9. This Is What I Get (4:11)
This is what I get for loving you.
This is what I get for being true.
This is what I get, for taking all you put me through.
But I'd do it again, 'cause I'm still in love with you.
It's been a long time, since I've seen you,
And I'm longing for your touch.
You left me, without a warning, yes you did,
You know I, need you so much, so much.
This is what I get for loving you.
This is what I get for being true.
This is what I get, for taking all you put me through.
But I'd do it again, 'cause I'm still in love with you.
Then he came along, and he took you, right by surprise.
Now I'm alone, and I got those teardrops in my eyes.
I told myself, this would happen, many times before.
Now I find myself, looking at the world, face down to the floor.
This is what I get for loving you.
This is what I get for being true.
This is what I get, for taking all you put me through.
But I'd do it gain, 'cause I'm still in love with you.
This is what I get for loving you.
This is what I get for being true.
This is what I get, for taking all you put me through.
But I'd do it again, 'cause I'm still in love with you, yeah.
Do it again, 'cause I'm still in love with you.
This is what I get for loving you,
This is what I get for being true.
This is what I get for loving you,
This is what I get for being true
