Concrete Killers Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Wait
1. The American Dream (3:22)
On Monday you make up the roar
of a different kind
Ya stand up to shake off the sleep
Gotta put your life back into overdrive
You'd do anything just ta live,
The American Dream

Finally, you're out of your gate doin' 98
Ya feel like you stand ten feet tall
with money that came to you overnight
There's no one to stop you,
so live The American Dream

Don't let 'em sell it to you overnight
That's not the way
Make them work, make them pay the price
to live The American Dream
2. The Heat And The Fire (4:16)
You got what it takes
to take what I got
I take the time to make you come undone
I've got what it takes
to give you what you want
I'm going to leave you breathless,
wanting so much more

I know you need me tonight
You know I want you now, right now

The heat from touching you
warms me up to what I want to do
And then I just gotta have more,
more of your love
The fire when you're so near
warms me up I ain't leaving here
And then I just gotta have more

Girl you're the best thing
that I've ever had
I didn't know 'till just now
that I need you so bad
And there's a good time
in store for us tonight
Until then, you know I'm gonna
keep you in my sights tonight

I know you need me tonight
You know I want you now, right now
3. Away Too Long (4:27)
Well it seems like yesterday
when I turned an' walked away
I had to do it on my own

So many years have come an' gone
since I left a broken home
I thought I'd find it on my own

My, My how things have changed
Seems my life's been rearranged

Did I stay away too long
is there no use goin' home
Once you've stayed away too long
is there anyone at home
Stayed away too long

Do you remember yesterday
when I turned an' walked away
I had to do it on my own
4. Hold Out (4:05)
Hold on to the will that drives you
Don't pay no 'tention to what they say
never turn your head an' walk away
Fed up, with the lies they tell ya
don't let them tell ya just what to play
Learn to play thier game
in a different way

When it seems like tomorrow
lasts forever
An' theres no tellin'
what tomorrow brings

Just hold out
don't let them break you
Hold on
keep 'em away
Hold out
Don't let them stand in your way
'cause nothin' can ever last forever

Cry out to the ones around you
make 'em listen to what you say
Don't let 'em turn around and walk away

(Repeat Chorus)
5. In The Dark (5:04)
The nightmares never scared me much
but the hardest part is still waking up
So take me back
take me back
To the dark

Another drink to bring me down
when daylight always comes around
I can't take it
I can't, the pain
In The Dark

To sleep the sleep of a thousand nights
to dream the dreams
That will always turn out right
In The Dark
In The Dark

You know someday I'll hit the streets
tired of all those dead end dreams
And I'll make it
Yes, I'll make it there
To The Dark

So don't look back at what you've seen
one step ahead and you'll believe
And you'll make it
Yes, you'll make it there
To The Dark
6. Get It Right [CD Bonus Track] (4:01)
7. Find A Way Out (3:54)
It seems I always live on the borderline
outside where no one cares if you live or die

Outta luck
with half nights sleep
Can't take no more
I'm in too deep
Got to find a way out
Just got to find a way

Now I'm face to face
with a world of crime
Always begging someone
just ta share a dime

When you're livin' in harmony
you let the world pass you by
But when you're living in poverty
all you need is to find a way out
8. Memories (5:22)
Seems it's just the memories
that keeps me goin'
When ya got no where to run
Could it be the seasons
that makes me dream
of the way things used to be

Will they ever come again
Will they ever come again yea
Will they ever come again
On a dark December
are you thinking of me
am I just a memory
Could it be the passion
that keeps you going
Just the way it works for me

On my knees I'm callin' an' callin'
ever searching for you
These memories recalling recalling
are so empty

Will they ever come again
Will they ever come again
Will they ever come again
These memories are so faded
Won't let me dream
of the ones I left back home
Seems to me I'm still waiting
Will I ever see memories
Will they ever come again

Memories in the night
These memories,
they wake me in the night
Memories in the night
Will they ever, will they ever
Will they ever come again

(Repeat Chorus)
9. One War With The World (4:05)
One man
One life
Yet, only one dream
filled with such bitter confusion
The time is set
you know what this means
locked in dark institutions

So it is the fight
The fight in your eyes
that will keep you from losin'
Or is it the light
on those darkest of nights
That will keep you from choosing

One man
One life
One fight for a dream
One War With The World

The stage is set
with just what you need
cloaked in in mass disillusion
The tables set
but it's not what you see
Only total confusion

So is it the fight
The fight in your eyes
that will keep you from losin'
Or is it the light
on those darkest of nights
That will keep you from choosing

(Repeat Chorus)
10. Windows (4:23)
Thru my window
it's plain for all to see
That winter's callin'
an' it's commin' for me
Cruel winds howling
I feel it in my hair
I hear you cryin'
an' I can't be there

Lookin' thru my window
no it's not that hard to see
Lookin' thru my window
seems it's just another lonely night
It's just another
long, lonely night
Thru my window

Cold chill blowin'
I feel the crisp in the air
An' your love is callin'
but I'm never there
Full moon risin'
I smell your tears in the air
If our love is strong
then it will always be there

(Repeat Chorus)
11. Concrete Killers (3:43)
Ya get to the city
the scenes aren't too pretty
Got to live with your backs to the wall
From under the street lights
to under the spot lights
They gather to wait for your fall

They're Concrete Killers
Just back street thrillers
Concrete Killers

Concrete Killers
Just back street thrillers
Concrete Killers

Ya get to the city
ya won't get no pitty
'cause the streets teach you
how to survive
With so many faces
an' so many places
It's the streets that'll
keep you alive

They're Concrete Killers
Just back street thrillers
Concrete Killers

Concrete Killers
Just back street thrillers
Concrete Killers
