Submitted by level Rousseau (2016-07-17)
1. Hardcore (4:06)
Well, he don't care what people say
Hardcore metal's here to stay
And he don't know from right or wrong
He's hard and hungry, lean and strong
All right, let's go, yeah right
You know that he's home out on the road

PRE-CHORUS:

Born to lose, not to die
Ask no questions, tell no lies
Sworn to fun, heeds the call
Lives to rock, it's him against them all

CHORUS:

He's hardcore (hardcore)
Harcore (hardcore)
Nothin' less, nothin' more
He's hardcore (hardcore)
Hardcore (hardcore)
To the death, that's for sure

The power chord is all he needs
Kill or be killed his only creed
While death is certain, life is not
So he strikes while the iron's hot
C'mon, let's go, yeah right
He lives a hard life, it's all he knows

Rides to live, lives to ride
The iron horse by his side
Axe in hand blasts away
Then moves on to rock another day

REPEAT CHORUS

Right

Solo - Tony

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS (2X)

All right
2. Call My Name (2:59)
You get nothin' from nothin' but that's nothin' for me
It takes trial by fire if you wanna walk free
You know I gotta be someone, the whole world wants to know
Everyday I get stronger, so let's get on with the show

Call my name (4X)

Now it may take a lifetime, it might even take ten
Maybe nobody knows me, they all will in the end
And I will be remembered long, long after I'm gone
All you need is a memory, my name will carry on

Call my name
Call my name, come on
Call my name
Call my

And I don't know what did this to me
Why I've got this need to hear my name
All I know is what I wanna be
So say it again, say it again

Solo - Tony

I gotta be someone, the whole world wants to know
Everyday I get stronger, so let's get on with the show

Call my name
Call my name
Call my name, come on
Call my name
3. Our Voice Will Be Heard (2:59)
One, two
One, two
One, two

We are the people, we are the one
We've got the numbers, we'll have the fun
Raise your fist in the air, show them all that you dare
And they'll know, yes they'll know

Our voive will be heard (2X)

Get motivated, choose your own road
You're filled with wonder, a power load
There's a world to be had, take the good, leave the bad
If they doubt, we'll scream and shout

Our voice will be heard (2X)

Solo - Dan

One, two
One, two

We are the people, we are the one
We've got the numbers, we'll have the fun
Raise your fist in the air, show them all that you dare
And they'll know, yes they'll know

Our voice will be heard (4X)

One, two
4. Isn't It Time (4:33)
As I lie awake at night I wonder
I wonder what you're feeling
Oh oh, oh oh
Are you alone or should I know that answer
But who's heart are you stealing
Oh oh, oh oh

PRE-CHORUS:

You took my love from me
I tried to play your game
I'll never know why hearts don't grow
But if they did I'm sure your's would stay the same

Isn't it time to stop your dancin'
Isn't it time for you to chance it
Isn't it time, isn't it time

Caught up in your wicked ways you step on
The innocent and needing
Oh oh, oh oh
Yet you laugh and walk away not knowing
That your heart's slowly bleeding
Oh oh, oh oh

In your false reality
You think you'll get away
But in the end those you offend
Are cursing you and soon you will have to pay

CHORUS:

Isn't it time to stop your dancin
Isn't it time for you to chance it
Isn't it time, isn't it time
Isn't it time to make some changes
Isn't it time to turn the pages
Isn't it time, isn't it time

Ooh

Solo - Tony

Isn't it time

REPEAT CHORUS

Aw
5. Cry You a Rainbow (5:02)
Ooh, our love is strong
Is it stronger than the pain all around us
Things we never thought we'd see
Ten thousand kinds of misery

It's been bad for much too long
How much longer will we stand by complainin'
How our lives are so damn tough
Will we ever have enough

Will there ever come a day when it all gets swept away
Will I ever find the words to say
What I'm feelin' in my heart 'fore it finally comes apart
Well I know where I'll start

I'm gonna cry you a rainbow
Gonna wash away your fear and shame
Gonna cry you a rainbow
Wanna wash away your pain

Ooh, we know it's wrong
Is it wronger to look on and do nothing?
Telling ourselves that we care
Clearly not enough to share

Is it down to me and you, it's so hard to face the truth
Is there really something we can do?
Look around at those who hate, smiling as they sit in wait
Before it gets too late

I'm gonna cry you a rainbow
Gonna wash away your fear and shame
Gonna cry you a rainbow
Wanna wash away your pain
Gotta wash away your pain

Solo - Dan

Will there ever come a day when it all gets swept away
Will I ever find the words to say
What I'm feelin' in my heart 'fore it finally comes apart
Well I know where I'll start

I'm gonna cry you a rainbow
Gonna wash away your fear and shame
Gonna cry you a rainbow
Wanna wash away your

Cry you a rainbow
Gonna wash away your fear and shame
I'm gonna cry you a rainbow
Wanna wash away your pain
Gotta wash away your pain
6. The Wanderer (Dion cover) (4:56)
I'm the type of guy who'll never settle down
Where pretty girls are, well you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love 'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em, they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, around, ooh

Oh well, I'm the type of guy who'll never settle down
Where pretty girls are, well you know that I'm around
I kiss 'em and I love 'em 'cause to me they're all the same
I hug 'em and I squeeze 'em, they don't even know my name
They call me the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Well, there's Jo on my left arm and there's Mary on my right
And Janey is the girl, yeah that I'll be with tonight
And when they ask me which one I love the best
I tear open my shirt, I've got Rosie on my chest
'Cause I'm the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, around

Well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I'm as happy as a clown
With my two fists of iron and I'm goin' nowhere

I'm the type of guy who likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself I'm a fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine, drive around the world
'Cause I'm the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Solo - Dan

Oh well, I'm the type of guy who likes to roam around
I'm never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself I'm a fallin' for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine, drive around the world
'Cause I'm the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, around
'Cause I'm the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, around, around
'Cause I'm the wanderer, yeah the wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, yeah
7. Uh Huh Huh (3:53)
CHORUS:

Uh huh huh, uh huh huh
Uh huh huh, uh huh huh

Check this out

I've been around, I've been back
Lost and found and back on the track
I said oh baby, there's a world I'd never known
Angel came, saw her face
Just one look and I was lost in space
I said oh baby, never leave my head alone

Well do it to me once, do it once again
My my my, hope this dream don't end

REPEAT CHORUS (2X)

Sweet little girl, little thing
Rock my world, how you make me sing
I said oh baby, put me in the pleasure zone
Lover girl, knock me out
Little girl, you make me scream and shout
I said oh baby, it's a world I've never known

Do it to me once, do it once again
My my my, hope this dream don't end

REPEAT CHORUS (2X)

Go

Solo - Tony

Do it to me once, do it once again
My my my, hope this dream don't end

REPEAT CHORUS (3X)

Go
8. Desperado (3:55)
Now just look how much you gave
The people that you tried to save
They don't even wanna talk to you
And when you see just what you are
A desecrated fallen star
A bad man with something to prove

Better stop, don't you realize
It's yourself you compromise
And it's gonna take more than a lot
To give good as you got

CHORUS:

Desperado, how will the wind blow
You've got the fire, it's time to make a stand
Desperado, where did your love go?
Filled with desire, it's time to tip your hand

As you look back at the lies
How your love was pushed aside
You were beaten 'til you broke in two
Now as you climb out of your tomb
Your broken heart is filled with gloom
Do they know just what you're gonna do?

Better stop before you make a move
Think what you stand to lose
I know you're mad because you were burned
But is there something that you've learned?

REPEAT CHORUS

Wooh

Solo - Dan

REPEAT CHORUS

Desperado, how will the wind blow
You've got the fire, time to make a stand
Desperado, where did your love go?
Filled with desire, it's time to tip your hand

Desperado
Desperado
Desperado
Desperado
9. Sometimes You Win (Sometimes You Lose) (3:57)
Let me tell you a little story now

In the beginning there was just no love to find
Then Eve told Adam, "bite this if you don't mind"
"Eve", said Adam as they left the garden
"This is something that should never have started"
Woah woah woah woah, but her apple did shine

CHORUS:

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
But if you play, honey you can't choose
Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose
What can you do?

So Cleopatra put her spell on Anthony
"Tony", said Cleo, "win this one for me"
So he fought until his blood was spillin'
But we know it was the bitch that killed him
Woah woah woah woah, but he made history, yeah

REPEAT CHORUS

Here comes that love again, sometimes a foe and sometimes a friend
Here comes that love again, you never know who what where or when
Here comes that love again, fun at the start but a pain in the end
Here comes that love again, ooh look out

Solo - Dan

Well "Eve", said Adam as they left the garden
"This is something that should never have started"
Woah woah woah woah, but her apple did shine, oh yeah

REPEAT CHORUS (2X)
10. Ride Through the Storm (Suzette's Song Part 2) (4:23)
Well I guess you could say this is the end
It's your time to leave, my old friend
Fly, fly away
No need to hang around here no more
So go now before I close the door
But I need you so bad
Can't seem to let go of all that I had

CHORUS:

Ride through the storm
Fighting our battles as we go along
Ride through the storm
Keep on ridin' on right through the storm
Ridin' on right through the storm

Wanna tell you I'm glad you hung around
I was lost and afraid, but now I'm found
Try, try again
Aren't just words, they're my battle cry
I've found some new wings, I'm gonna fly
Now I'm well on my way
I've heard all the warnings, there's no need to pray

REPEAT CHORUS

Solo - Tony

Still you stand by my side
What are you waiting for?
Say you're in for the ride
Well, now I'm really sure
We won't turn back no more

Ride through the storm
Fighting our battles as we go along
Ride through the storm
Keep on ridin' on right through the storm
Ridin' on right through the

REPEAT CHORUS

Ridin' right through the storm
