Spellbound Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Gangland
Help me, protect me, get me out of this place
No chance, no hope in the rat race
They don�t care, they don�t see
Where you�ve been
They don�t wanna know
That you can�t cope with anything

Oh, yeah, yes
No easy come, easy go
Not too fast, not too slow
Must get up, but you�ve pulled back down
If you mess around with fire
You�re gonna get yourself burnt

Hit it, break it, kick down the door
If you want some of the action
They still laugh, at your part in their play
They hide the truth
Ain�t no cure for a messed up youth

Can�t stand, can�t charge the social gangland
All stick together
You will never break their wall
They don�t care, they don�t see
Where you�ve been
They don�t wanna know
That you can�t cope with anything
2. Take It
Take my money from my pockets, fill my mind with you
You�ve got a body, you know how to use it
I�ve gotta get to you
Alright!
Take me up, take me over
I�ve got to get out of my room
I�m gonna get to you

Hold on
Don�t you double cross your dealer, oh no
'Cos I�m the only one
To make your dreams real, I�ll make it real
I will, so take it

You strut so good to my music
Knowing all the tunes
You got everything I need
So calm and so cool
Alright!
Take me up, take me over
No control, only a sweet taste
I�m becoming a hopless case

You�re something big on the scene
They all love your style
Bu they�re just too blind to see
What�s behind the smile
Alright!
Take me up, take me over, yeh, OK
But you finish much too soon
We get each other through
3. Minotaur
(instrumental)
4. Hellbound
Ripping through the clouds at the speed of light
Gonna shoot him down if he gets in my sights

I�m hellbound, spellbound
Shot down, heading for the ground

Now I�m closing, he�s got dues to pay
I�ve got no thoughts of pity, his end is on his way

Now he�s on my tail and there�s a smile on his face
Half a second later and I�m wasted in space

No, no, I�m hellbound
5. Mirror
Walking in the mist
Talking to the night
I'm enslaved in your wish
So blind wanting sight

Chorus: Mirror, Mirror on the wall
You stare at me and share my thoughts
Mirror, Mirror I hear your call
You have my soul and body caught

Whisper names into nowhere
The cold touches me
You know but don't care
Will never ease my need

Deception you have learnt
Tried to keep you close
I know I'm not the first
Between living and ghost
I can't laugh anymore
Pictures begin to fade
Please unlock the door
Release me from my rage

No you couldn't stay
You, You were gone too soon
I, I must find a way
To light my empty world
6. Silver And Gold
Rich man poor man
Beggar man, thief
Winner, loser
The strong and the weak

Silver & Gold

No less, but the best
Is all you talk about
Got plenty of money
You'll never go without

Silver & Gold

All your silver
can't buy a friend
More you get the more you want
Greed you won't defend

Silver & Gold
7. Blackjack
I'm a gambling man
I play the game of chance
I only place a bet
When the odds are on romance

Chorus: I am I am
I'm a gambling man
I try to win every game
I play for keep
It's all that I seek
I am I am a gambling man

I've played in every bar
I always play with sin
Lose the shirt off my back
But I win it back again

Glass of whisky in my hand
A couple of cards up my sleeve
What can I do with the Queen of Hearts
Oh honey you wouldn't believe
8. Story So Far
Beem looking for a reason
I'm waiting for your call
Gonna take all my chances
I really need to score....

Chorus: Hey do you believe,
The story so far,
Hey, it's not hard to concieve
Can you feel the spark....

Tell me that you understand
I never told you no lies
Anyone can criticise me
It's better to realise....

Chorus (repeat)

Don't think about the future
I don't know what it holds
Just live the life you want
Never lose your soul....

Chorus (repeat)

Do you believe
Do you believe my story,
Hey, I never told you no lies etc....
9. Tyger Bay
Look out, nowhere to hide,
They don't care down there,
It's a hard fight to survive,
You'll never be prepared....
See the blood on the sidewalk,
Listen to the violence talk
Hear the night call,
Over the city,
The kids begin their war....

Chorus: Gotta get out,
Gotta get away,
You'll have to pay,
If you stay too long,
In Tyger Bay....

The street claims, one more,
Life's got no direction,
Can't depend on the law,
Too much frustration....
Women gaze from red windows,
In expensive rags,
Selling themselves to shadows,
Can't hide their scars....

Chorus (repeat)

What can I do, What can I say,
To change the situation,
You're on your own, no helping hand,
So lost and alone....
People don't care, they always stay
Away from the place,
Get out while you can,
There's too much hate....
10. Don't Stop By
Shadows in an empty house
Ain't no relief in tears,
Been days since you left
Seems like years
I can't stand the loneliness
The radio sings my song
I cannot accept
That you're really gone

Chorus: Don't stop by, she's not at home
Don't stop by, I'm on my own

The darkness comes so fast
Reminds me of the past
It's hard to sleep alone
How long will this last
I see your face everywhere
It's there, then dissapears
Only my imagination
You're nowhere near

Your silk and satin dreams
Clouded out my sanity
Why has the feeling gone
When our love was strong
I've lost my count of time
Can't understand your mind
Love doesn't linger in my life
