1. Rockin' Again (5:11)
[Byford/Oliver/Dawson]

I'm standing in the dark
Let the music start
I can hear you call out my name
I see the flashing lights
Cutting through the night
The spotlight is shining on you
I've always been around
I'll never let you down
I've seen it through right from the start

We'll be rockin' together, rockin' again
We'll be rockin' together, rockin' again

I'm standing in the dark
Let the music start
I can hear you call out my name

We'll be rockin' together, rockin' again (rockin' again)
We'll be rockin' together, rockin' again

Do what you wanna do tonight
We're gonna make you feel alright
Do what you wanna do tonight, tonight

Do what you wanna do tonight
We're gonna make you feel alright
Do what you wanna do tonight, yeah

Stop the show
I gotta go
But we'll be back for more

We'll be rockin' together, rockin' again (rockin' again)
We'll be rockin' together, rockin' again (rockin' again)

Rockin' again
Rockin' again
[Repeat to end]
2. Call of the Wild (4:03)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Glockler]

Waiting for the night
Keeping out of sight
You're standing on the streets for kicks
Looking for a thrill
You know you're dressed to kill
You're turning all the young boys on
Treat them all the same
Life is just a game
You're breaking every heart around
Really got it made
Driving me insane
But you're running out of time

It's the call of the wild
Creatures of the night
It's the call of the wild
Calling you tonight

Life is just for fun
Take it on the run
You're trying everything in sight
Living fast and wild
You're a restless child
You're screaming at the night
Fighting fire with fire
Burning with desire
But no one's gonna put you out
Run with the pack
Never lookin' back
But only the strong will survive

It's the call of the wild
Creatures of the night
It's the call of the wild
Calling you tonight

Waiting for the night
Keeping out of sight
You're standing on the streets for kicks
Looking for a thrill
You know you're dressed to kill
You're turning all the young boys on
Treat them all the same
Life is just a game
You're breaking every heart around
Really got it made
Driving me insane
But you're running out of time

It's the call of the wild
Creatures of the night
It's the call of the wild
Calling you tonight

[Repeat to end]
3. Back on the Streets (4:00)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Glockler]

We've been out in the cold
Trying to get in
We've been ripped off and rolled
Heads in a spin
Nothin can stop us breakin' through
Finding my way back home to you
Standing alone in the fight
You've never been out of our sight

We're back on the streets again
We're back on our feet again
We're out of the night
Into the light
We're back on the streets again

We're back, we're back on the streets again
We're back, we're back on our feet again

We were caught in the crossfire
But no one could win
They bled off the power
Our spirit within
Standing our ground
We're digging in
This time 'round
We're gonna win
The banners are flying high
We're reaching for the sky

We're back on the streets again
We're back on our feet again
We're out of the night
Into the light
We're back on the streets again

We're back, we're back on the streets again
We're back, we're back on our feet again

We're back on the streets again, whooo
We're back, we're back on the streets again, yeah
We're back, we're finding our feet again

We're back, we're back on the streets again
We're back on the streets again
[Repeat to end]
4. Devil Rides Out (4:25)
[Byford/Dawson]

Waaaahhh

Cast your spell in the night
Black hearted woman mystifies
Heart of stone cold as ice
Play the cards roll the dice
You're the devil in disguise
I see the evil in your eyes
I used to love you but now I know
Devil woman ya won't let go

She's a devil, see the devil ride out, waaaahhh
She's a devil, see the devil ride out, ride out

Spin the wheel cast my fate
Wicked body filled with hate
I feel your power in my soul
Trapped inside your crystal ball
Turn the key lock me in
Keep me hungry for your sin
We were lovers from the start
Stop your torture of my heart

She's a devil, see the devil ride out, ride out
She's a devil, see the devil ride out
See the devil ride out

See the devil
See the devil
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
Ummm, ya black hearted woman
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
You're as cold as ice
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
See the devil, the devil ride out
(See the devil, the devil ride out)
See the devil ride out

I'm the loser in the game
You're the keeper you got me tamed
You're the priestess with eyes of fire
Now I see you're a liar
I've been a fool I should have known
You were evil up to the bone
Break the spell let me go
It's not a secret anymore

She's a devil, see the devil ride out
She's a devil, see the devil ride out, waaaahhh

She's a devil, see the devil ride out
She's a devil, see the devil ride out

Ride out!
5. Rock 'n' Roll Gypsy (4:14)
Yaaahh

White Line fever
Takes me high
Another city
Another lie
Another town
Another face
Another woman to take your place
Catch the bullet
Ride the storm
Drive me crazy 'till the dawn
Like an eagle flying high
Look for freedom in the sky

She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
Don't go breaking my heart
She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
She's gonna tear me apart

Rollin' thunder
Movin' on
Another time
Another song
Another room
Another night
Another dream
Another fight
Keep on movin' down the line
Gypsy woman on my mind
Ask no questions tell no lies
See the answers in my eyes

She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
Don't go breaking my heart
She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
She's gonna tear me apart

Hey gypsy, uh, you're breakin' my heart, yeah
Tear me apart, uh, yeah

White Line fever
Takes me high
Another city
Another lie
Another town
Another face
Another woman to take your place
Catch the bullet
Ride the storm
Drive me crazy 'till the dawn
Like an eagle flying high
Look for freedom in the sky

She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
Don't go breaking my heart
She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
She's gonna tear me apart

She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
Don't go breaking my heart
She's a rock 'n roll gypsy
Yeah
6. Broken Heroes (5:25)
[Byford/Dawson]

They came to fight for glory in their thousands
Young men with their dreams
They died before the guns for their country
A book of faded pictures, broken dreams

Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
The broken heroes

Uncle Sam is waiting with the draft card
He says you've got to fight the Vietcong
The stations full of flags and rule Britannia
The engine pulls you out towards the Somme

Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
The broken heroes
The broken heroes
The broken heroes
The broken heroes

Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
The broken heroes

The pipes are calling young men back to Belfast
The general says you march to Stalingrad
You rode into the valley with the hundred
Seven lonely graves on Goose Green

Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they now
The broken heroes
The broken heroes
The broken heroes
The broken heroes

Where are they now
[Repeat to end]

10. Give It Everything You've Got (3:27)
[Byford/Quinn/Oliver/Dawson/Glockler]

Give it everything you've got

Just another kid waiting for a break
Is just bad news
Everybody's working nine to five
You got to pay your dues
But listen to your heart
Don't let them take away your time, no
Forget about tomorrow
Stop waiting for a sign

Ya gotta give it everything, kid
Give it everything you got, whooo
Ya gotta give it everything, yeah
Give it everything you got, everything you got

Can you hear the whistle blowin' in the night
Somewhere down the line
It's calling out your name, baby
Leave your blues behind (leave 'em behind)
If you wanna take a chance
Step right up and ring the bell (ring the bell)
Let me see your best shot
Only time will tell, whooo

Ya gotta give it everything, mama
Give it everything you got, yeah
Ya gotta give it everything, baby
Give it everything you got, everything you got

Just another kid waiting for a break
Is just bad news
Everybody's working nine to five
You got to pay your dues
But listen to your heart
Don't let them take away your time
Forget about tomorrow
Stop waiting for a sign, yeah

Ya gotta give it everything, kid
Give it everything you got, whooo
Ya gotta give it everything, yeah
Give it everything you got, ya

Ya gotta give it everything, mama
