Raised On Rock

Music:
Mikael Nord Andersson, Martin Hansen
Lyrics:
Martin Hansen, Klaus Meine
I was born in a hurricane
Nothing to lose and everything to gain
Ran before I walked
Reaching for the top
Out of control just like a runaway train

I never walked on the narrow path
I always wanted what I didn’t have
All was not enough
Riding lady luck
Driving in the fast lane and just stepped on the gas

Cause I was raised on rock
My dad was howling but my heart was a rolling stone
Yeah I was raised on rock
My mama said I had a devil to scratch my soul
And I was raised on rock

Shoot me up baby make me high
And hit the jackpot in the heat of the night
Wanna kiss your lips
Wanna move your hips
See my desire in your laser-beam eyes

You shake me up got me spinning ‘round
You know what’s going up must come down
Tomorrow I’ll be gone
A million miles from home
The only road I know leads out of town

Cause I was raised on rock
My dad was howling but my heart was a rolling stone
Yeah I was raised on rock
My mama said I had a devil to scratch my soul
And I was raised on rock

Growing up with the guitar men
Growing up way too fast
Follow the sound of a rock’n’roll band
This call will always last

Cause I was raised on rock

Sting In The Tail

Music:
Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Save me from myself before I’m going down
My world went kind of crazy spinning ‘round’n‘round
My body’s in a mess from head to toe
Got nothing to lose and nowhere to go

I’m driving out of town just follow my heart
I think I’m gonna be a rock’n’roll star
The girls would go mad I’d give ‘em all I can give
If I had a cheap guitar and one dirty riff

Hail hail a sting in the tail
Hail hail a sting in the tail
Hail hail a sting in the tail
Hail hail a sting in the tail

Rocking night after night day after day
There’s plenty of love and no escape
Life’s screaming and rolling like a monster train
Destination to nowhere I won’t be late

Jo Jo I got to go
Here comes another show

Hail hail a sting in the tail
Hail hail a sting in the tail
Hail hail a sting in the tail
Hail hail a sting in the tail

Slave Me

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Matthias. Jabs, Eric Bazilian
Life’s a kind of struggle
Living in this town
I’m never looking back just no just ahead
My mind was locked up in a cage
Always ready to break out
These heavy chains on me drive me mad

I wanna be in love tonight
I wanna get you where I got you
Give it just one night
I wanna be your love tonight
Slave me

Power’s all that matters
Only one of us can survive
Tell me are you strong enough to stay on track
Will I die and go to heaven
If life was living hell
All I know is I’m always coming back

I wanna be in love tonight
I wanna get you where I got you
Give it just one night
I wanna be your love tonight
Slave me

Get me wreck me
Chase me check me
Sex me down my spine
Take me break me
Love me hate me
Make me lose my mind

I wanna be in love tonight
I wanna get you where I got you
Give it just one night
I wanna be your love tonight
Slave me

The Good Die Young

Music:
Rudolf Schenker, Christian Kolonovits
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
You wake up
Watch the world go ‘round
You shiver
Feeling upside down
Your heart is beating fast
Pumping blood to your head
Another day to fight
You have a prayer on your lips under the desert sun
And a loaded gun

You remember every word
That your father said
Stay out of trouble son
And be true to yourself
You’ll be working like a dog
Raise a family
And life will be alright
But now it’s written in the stars if you’ll make it out alive
Out alive

The good die young
There might be no tomorrow
In god we trust
Through all this pain and sorrow
The good die young
The flame will burn forever
And no one knows your name
Bring the boys back home again

It was a quiet day
On the streets of hope
When the bomb went off
At the side of the road
Sounds of breaking steel
An windshield full of blood
No enemy in sight
It feels like in a movie scenes are passing by
It’s your life

No Limit

Music:
Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker, Eric Bazilian
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker, Eric Bazilian
What’s the noise who’s to blame
The Maserati comes unchained
Smell the power and energy
Come away, come away, come away

You’re the rider of the wildest storm
Live your dreams before they’re gone
Feel the spirit that sets you free
Come away, come away, come away

You gotta live it up there’s no limit
We gotta make it there’s no limit
You give it all you’ve got there’s no limit
Reach for the sky

We gonna leave for tomorrowland
We’ve got the future on our hands
A piece of heaven for you and me
Come away, come away, come away

You gotta live it up there’s no limit
We gotta make it there’s no limit
You give it all you’ve got there’s no limit
Reach for the sky

You gotta let it go there’s no limit
We gotta take it there’s no limit
You leave me hot and cold there’s no limit
Reach for the sky

Higher higher
Take me higher always higher
Reach for the sky

Rock Zone

Music:
Klaus Meine, Mikael Nord Andersson, Martin Hansen
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
You let me in but won’t let me out
You hold the key to what it’s all about
I hear your machine just coming round the block
Just ready to go to rock around the clock

He’s an angel but no one can tell
He might be from heaven might be from hell

You’re not alone in the rock zone
You got it down down to the bone
You’re not alone in the rock zone
You’re not alone

The temperature’s rising put the helmet on
This is a place where I belong
Bad girl’s keep a coming showing all the rest
What rock’n’roll girls really do best

Is she an angel or under a spell
I hear the devil ringing the bell

You’re not alone in the rock zone
You got it down down to the bone
You’re not alone in the rock zone
You’re not alone

Rock Zone
Rock Zone
Rock Zone
Rock Zone

You’re not alone

Lorelei

Music:
Rudolf Schenker, Fredrik Thomander, Anders Wikström
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Eric Bazilian, Fredrik Thomander, Anders Wikström
There was a time when we sailed on together
Once had a dream that we shared on the way
There was a place where we used to seek shelter
I never knew the pain of the price I would pay

You led me on with a cloak and a dagger
And I didn’t know you had made other plans
You had me believe we were meant forever
I really thought my heart would be safe in your hands

Lorelei
My ship has passed you by
And though you promised me to show the way
You led me astray
You were my lorelei
What kind of fool I was
Cause I believed in every word you said
And now I wonder why
Lorelei

There was a time when we held one another
Baring our souls in the light of the flame
Those were the days now I’ve lost my illusions
Sometimes I wake in the night and I call out your name

Lorelei
My ship has passed you by
And though you promised me to show the way
You led me astray
You were my lorelei
What kind of fool I was
Cause I believed in every word you said
And now I wonder why
Lorelei

Now there’s a light that shines on the river
Blinding my eyes from so far away
Shot through the heart but now I know better
As hard as it is to resist the song that you play

Lorelei

Turn You On

Music:
Rudolf Schenker, Mikael Nord Andersson, Martin Hansen
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Yeah let’s fly away from here
And scream if you like it
The world out there disappears
Tell me are you excited

So let’s rattle and roll and shake
The sweat hits the ceiling
Tonight we will slip away
Just rocking and reeling

Beyond the point of no return
The fever’s rising ‘till we’ll crash and burn
There’s something in my veins that is thicker than blood
Nothing in the world this is all we’ve got

So come on if you wanna feel the sting
Come on come on baby shake that thing
I wanna turn you on

Yeah let’s celebrate all night
We’re starting all over
You turn me into a wild
And hard Rock’n Roller

Into the light out of the dark
A passion never known invades my heart
The universe is rocking like heaven and hell
If I’m coning back hard to tell

So come on if you wanna feel the sting
Come on come on baby shake that thing
Mama rock on and feel the sting
Come on come on and let the show begin
I wanna turn you on

SLY

Music:
Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
She was born with a song in the air
In the summer of 85
The clouds just went and the day became so bright
A child of love angel like
With the most beautiful smile
Growing up to be the sunshine of my life

Come talk to me
Don’t run away
Don’t let the distance grow
The door’s wide open
Don’t ever think
There is no way home

Sly come home tonight
The world is so bad you’re drive ‘em all mad
With your smile
Sly my joy and pride
When the runaway train took you away
A part of me died

The years went by like the summer of love
So much changed in our lives
They’re too may scars deep under my skin
Love turned to hate and hate to love
Let’s start all over again
And now I wonder what life will bring

Just let us laugh
The tears away
No more hard feelings no
Cause after all
You’re my flesh and blood
I don’t want you to fall

Sly come home tonight
The world is so bad you’re drive ‘em all mad
With your smile
Sly my joy and pride
When the runaway train took you away
A part of me died

Spirit Of Rock

Music:
Rudolf Schenker, Eric Bazilian
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker, Eric Bazilian
We are in the ocean
Every kind of fish
We are a human rainbow
We are whatever we wish
We have been forever
And we shall always be
We can endure whatever
We are eternity

The spirit of rock will never die
Just like a rock in the ocean
In the spirit of rock we’re flying high
Always high on emotion
The spirit of rock will never die
I swear Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

We’ve had night’s so lonely
We’ve had our days of doubt
Some things we’ve learnt to live with
Some things we live without
We got no time for waiting
We got no sacred cows
For there is no tomorrow
There’s only here and now

And the spirit of rock will never die
Just like a rock in the ocean
In the spirit of rock we’re flying high
A million miles high on emotion
The spirit of rock will never die

I swear Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Five days a week
Keep the spirit alive
Eight days a week
Forever saturday night

Let’s Rock!

Music:
Rudolf Schenker, Klaus Meine, Eric Bazilian
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Eric Bazilian
She looked like mother nature
Dressed up in black
She had a ying and a yang
Tattooed on her back
A pretty little blonde on a big white horse
I wanted a ride she said of course

Let’s rock let’s roll
The party’s on we’re having a ball
We’re gonna leave a sting in your soul
We put the rock back in the roll
Let’s rock let’s roll

She looked like a dancer
And god only knows
She must have had a thing
For scorpions
To make little love wouldn’t be no crime
And what came next really blew my mind

Let’s rock let’s roll
The party’s on we’re having a ball
We’re gonna leave a sting in your soul
We put rock back in the roll
Let’s rock let’s roll

Coming together
Rocking forever let’s rock
The party’s on
All night long let’s rock

The Best Is Yet To Come

Music:
Eric Bazilian, Fredrik Thomander, Anders Wikström
Lyrics:
Rudolf Schenker, Eric Bazilian, Fredrik Thomander, Anders Wikström
Across the desert plains
Where nothing dares to grow
I taught you how to sing
You taught me everything I know
And thought the night is young
And we don’t know if we’ll live to see the sun

The best is yet to come
I know, you know
That we’ve only just begun
Through the highs and lows
And how can I live without you
You’re such a part of me
And you’ve always been the one
Keeping me forever young
And the best is yet to come

Na na na na
Don’t look now, the best is yet to come
Na na na na
Take my hand, the best is yet to come

Thinking of the times
How we laughed and cried
I wouldn’t change a thing
I couldn’t even if I tried
Through the wind and rain
The spirit of our song remains the same

And the best is yet to come
I know, you know
That we’ve only just begun
Through the highs and lows
And how can I live without you
You’re such a part of me
And you’ve always been the one
Keeping me forever young
And the best is yet to come

Na na na na
Don’t look now, the best is yet to come
Na na na na
Take my hand, the best is yet to come

Oh can you feel it in the air
It’s in your heart and everywhere
We got to keep that dream alive

We cross another road
And face another day
Soldiers never die
They only fade away
How can we grow old
When the soundtrack of our lives is rock and roll

And the best is yet to come
I know, you know
That we’ve only just begun
Through the highs and lows
And how can I live without you
You’re such a part of me
And you’ve always been the one
Keeping me forever young
And the best is yet to come

Na na na na
Don’t look now, the best is yet to come
Na na na na
Take my hand, the best is yet to come

Na na na na
Don’t look now, the best is yet to come
Na na na na
Take my hand, the best is yet to come

Thunder And Lightning

Music:
Rudolf Schenker, Klaus Meine, Christian Kolonovits
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
I left you once you killed me twice
Seems like the devil rolled the dice
What have you done what can we do
To make it through

Remember when life was free
As free as our minds
Wounded hearts

Thunder and lightning in the heat of the night
Some lonely highway it’s a hell of a ride
Turn it up to extreme let the engine scream
And leave it all behind
Thunder and lightning
In a stormy night

The gun was pointed to my head
You walked away and I was dead
In the name of love you’ve turned to dust
What I’ve called trust

Remember when we were young
And innocent too
The monsters stayed behind the walls
No fears at all

Thunder and lightning in the heat of the night
Last exit my way it’s a hell of a ride
Turn it up to extreme let the engine scream
And leave it all behind
Thunder and lightning
In a stormy night
