Night of the Blade Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level
1. Someone to Love (3:41)
That girl, she don't give a damn
I try to fight it but its driving me mad
Nothing stops her, nothing ever could
Like a flame burning inside
One look into her eyes, she'll burn you alive
I can't fight it, don't know if I should

I know you run around, I know the things you say
I feel the pain but I can't turn away
I know its wrong but I just can't break the spell
Cold as ice, always in control
But you're so distant, always far away
Can't believe it, thought I knew so well

Chorus
Someone to love (someone to love)
Gonna make you feel alright
Someone to love (someone to love)
Gonna make you feel alright
Someone to love

Red hot, burning fire, gonna bring my love to you
I can feel your blood run hot
Gonna bring you, to your knees

Solo
Repeat Chorus
2. Night of the Blade (4:02)
Night, down on the streets, nothing seems real
Shadows playing games on your mind
Victims all around, the fear here is real
Never knowing what you will find

KILLER, prowling the night
KILLER, can this be right?

Chorus
Night of the blade
There's no escape
Night of the blade
Run for your life

Run, something is near, the plan is attack
Jack the knife has called out your name
Scream if you can, no one will hear
People say he's going insane

SINNER, prowling the night
SINNER, can this be right?

Chorus

Guitar Solo

Run, run, run, night of the blade
Run, run, run, night of the blade
3. Rock Me to the Limit (4:54)
Put on your dancing shoes
Let me see those baby blues
I bet your mama never rocked like this
She still thinks its illegal to kiss

Rock city, it's not out of fashion
It's burning strong like a voodoo passion
You hear the music on the radio
Rock steady, ready to roll

Bridge
Role reversal in a guitar dream
A Northern girl she's fine by me
A cigarette that never burns away
Rock & roll is here to stay

Chorus
Rock me
Rock me to the limit
Rock me
Rock me to the limit

Anyway, beg, steal or borrow
Keep on rocking like there's no tomorrow
The music's loud, sleeping dogs don't lie
The jukebox juice is running high

We're all living in a teenage dream
My baby's rocking like you've never seen
The sweet sensation of a midnight cruise
Like rock and roll you can never lose

Bridge
Chorus

Put on your dancing shoes
Let me see those baby blues
I want to see you dance
Oh, rock me

Solo
Chorus
4. Warrior of the Rising Sun (5:25)
In a long time ago, when the sword was your soul
And the sun turned to gold, and the day turned to night
A man stands alone, knowing he has the right
And the power of life, over all he surveys
With his sword in his hand, he rules all the land
Even fools understand, he lives just to fight
A man rich in pride, no one dares to defy
Don't stare in his eyes, 'cos he's the samurai

He bows his head and cries
'By The Sword I Will Live To Die'
His eyes are ablaze when he screams out his name
He lifts his sword to the rising sun
The sun hits the steel as he's shielding his eyes
He rules with the blade, will it drive him insane?

Death in life is his only way
Blood stains the land as they heed his commands
He'll fight to the death, when he makes his last stand
The time will come when they claim his crown
He'll be cut down 'cos he's only a man
But until that day, he will rule all this land

Samurai!
Samurai!
Samurai!
Samurai!
By the sword, You live to die...

Solo

You first killed so long ago
The way the warrior learns to fight
Can you feel your life's blood draining away?
Has the power to foresee
Knows the future, what's been before
Can't you see he's getting stronger? Sa-mur-ai!

Samurai
5. Unleash the Beast (4:32)
Step this way, don't be afraid
Ten minutes of your time, the show has begun
Don't wait too long, there's room for more
Straight through that door, no need to run

Bridge
Now you pay, too slow to see
How it's too be, oh the lies
Death on the run, take me now

Chorus
Running, running for cover
Running, unleash the beast
Running, running for cover
Running, unleash the beast

The time has come, don't run away
Just step a little closer and you will be mine
You've made the choice, you're free to go
The price you pay is anytime

Bridge
Solo
Chorus

6. Love Struck (3:47)
I can't stand it, feels like a heart attack
Don't know what's right or wrong
Just want the night with you
My head explodes, burning fireball
Caught in a one way street
I imagine the things we can do

Chorus
Love struck, overload
I'm losing my head over you
Love struck, overload
I'm losing my head over you

Hungry and wild, losing all control
I'm being ripped apart
But I'm caught in the heat of the night
My body screams, I just can't get away
I've got the stage tonight, I know that the timing is right

Chorus
Solo
Chorus
7. Dead of the Night (3:55)
In the dark of the night, you stand all alone
Once you were glad to be free of your dreams
Now you can't stop your screaming
Cos the words never come

Chorus
The dead of the night
The dead of the night

Solo

The time's ten to midnight
When the price will be paid
The night is black and there's nowhere to run
He believes what he's doing
Now vengeance is mine, hear him cry

Chorus
8. Lightning Strikes (Straight Through the Heart) (4:31)
I want to know if there's a reason
We keep on searching, we don't find a clue
In the gutter, in the free zone
We're all monkeys in a human zoo

Bridge#1
I won't take it any longer
Street lover, a love alone
The storm is raging, it's getting stronger
It's like a bomb, it's ready to blow

Bridge#2
Thunder rolls, and I can't live forever
Thunder rolls, I just can't take it

Chorus
Lightning strikes straight through the heart (x4)

Keep trying just a little harder
Give me an inch and I'll take the world
I'm hungry, think I'll raid the larder
I need attention like a little girl

Bridge#1
Bridge#2
