THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

Late at night I've been knocking
On your door
Late tonight I'll be calling
You can be sure
I'll be waiting
Standing in the shadows once again
Sneaking, creeping, howling 
Like a tomcat once again

Oh, there'll be nowhere you can hide
When I take you
On the other side of midnight

You know I don't love you
But I love what you can do
Some more of that hot persuasion
This town its just like you

Oh, there'll be nowhere you can hide
When I take you
On the other side of midnight
I'll be knocking
The other side of midnight
I'll be calling
The other side of midnight
Knock, knocking
The other side of midnight

I'm gonna take you
I'm gonna take you
At midnight, at midnight

Late at night
I'll be knock, knock, knocking
On your door
I said late tonight I'll be calling
You can be sure
I'm gonna take you
Oh, it's gonna hurt so good
I'm gonna make you 
Do what a bad girl should

Oh, there'll be nowhere you can hide
I'll take you
On the other side of midnight
I'll be knocking
The other side of midnight
I'll be calling
The other side of midnight  ...

STAY ON TOP (Tom Jackson)

Everybody got somebody
Trying to make you feel real bad
Ain't none of your business
Talking bout half too bad
Be strong of yourself
Stand up - walk away
Nobody gives a damn 
For a single thing you say

I'm singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Boy, you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Here comes the thunder

Hide money in your pocket
Be nobody's fool
Always think of number one
That's my golden rule
Take care of business
Go for a win at the best
Be strong enough to take it
Ain't no need to beg

I'm singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Boy, you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Watch out for the thunder

Bad times make it right
But the good times get too high
I can't stand it
I can't stand it no more
I can't stand it ...

Somebody, everybody
Trying to make you feel real bad
Ain't nobody's business
Talkng bout half too bad
Be strong of yourself
Stand up - walk away
Nobody's gonna listen
To a single word you say

I'm singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Boy, you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Look out for the thunder

Stay on top
You've got to stay on top
Stand up and sing it
Stay on top
Take care of business
Stay on top

LONELY NIGHTS (Bryan Adams/Jim Vallance)
(1980) Ian Lloyd: Third Wave Civilization
(1981) Bryan Adams: You Want It You Got It

Will you risk your reputation?
I don't know
You just don't know what you're saying
Anymore
You know beggars can't be choosers
And it's bad
We may win, we may be loosers
I don't care, no no no

Oh baby, I just can't stand
Another lonely night
So come on over and save me
Save me from another lonely night

I hear every word you're saying
They're all lies
But with every breath you're taking
You're thinking of ways to say goodnight

Baby, I just can't stand
Another lonely night
So come on over and save me
Save me from another lonely night
Come on over
Come and save me ...

SWEET TALK (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

I see your face
In the magazine stand
I wanna hold you 
In the palm of my hand
I love everything about you
You're such a long way away

Your sweet talk
Ain't enough for me
I may be deaf 
But you're too blind to see

You're gonna break my bones
With your feminine tongue
But I don't wanna hear
Your sweet talk tonight
Not again tonight
When I call tonight
Don't wanna hear your sweet talk 
Tonight

I hear your voice on the radio
It's got so bad 
I don't know which way to go
Why don't you wake up girl
You're such a long way away

Your sweet talk ain't enough, you see
I need a woman
'Cause you're a woman to me
You're gonna break my bones 
With your feminine tongue
But I don't wanna hear
Your sweet talk tonight
Not again tonight
When I call tonight
Don't wanna hear your sweet talk 
Tonight

LOVE IS BLIND (Joey Carbone)
(1981) John O'Banion: John O'Banion 

I tried to give you love
That was ever flowing
I tried to give a love
That could be so true
But you wanted less
Than I had to offer
What was I to do?

I tried to give a soul 
But it's left to fortune
I tried to promise dreams
That I would make come true
But you said that love was
A game for children
Here I stand, the fool

Love is blind
Blinded by love
You're all I can see in my eyes
My mind says: Stop
But my heart says: Go
And oh, how it hurts to find
It still went to say that
Love is blind
Love is blind

I told myself if there was 
A chance to show you
Just how a good love
If there could be
But love was something that
You had never given
I just couldn't see
I close my eyes to all that
You never gave me
Weeping cold heart didn't wanna see
How you played around
And how well you showed me
How wounded love can be

Love is blind
Blinded by love
You're all I can see in my eyes
My mind says: Stop
But my heart says: Go
And oh, how it hurts to find
It still went to say that
Love is blind
Love is blind

RED LIGHTS (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

Red lights - on the highway
Head lights - blinding my eye
Red lights - keep me waiting
White lights - drive me insane
Red lights - in the city
Street lights - hide in the night
Sunshine - I'm looking for someone
Red lights - young blood's allright

Try it, oh 
I cant fight
I can't keep away
No no no no way

Red lights - she knows what I'm here for
Head lights - look me in the eye
Red lights - are you looking for danger
White lights - drives me insane

Try it, oh
I canít fight
I can't keep away
No no no no for one day

Red lights - no question
Street lights - uses her
Red lights - body desire
White lights Ė want me to bed 
Red lights - in the city
Street lights - shadow in the night
Sunshine - if you need someone
Head lights- that young blood's allright

Try it, oh
I canít fight
I can't keep away
Not today
She brings me to my knees

Red lights - I want you
Red lights - I need you
Red lights - you get too heavy
Red lights

ROLLIN' THE ROCK (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

Feels so cold, so alone
An empty stage, no one home
Feels so strange, so scared
No point in screaming
I won't be heard

You're so cold, you're so cool
It's so dark in this tomb

Time has come so soon
And time takes no prisoners
Except in the womb
There's no way out, no escape
This silence is deafening
I have to cry out

You're so cold, you're so cool
It's so dark in this tomb

Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away

Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away

Set me free from this grave
Am I forgiven, can I be saved?
You've been so cold for so long
This silence is deafening
Was I so wrong?

You're so cold, you're so cool
It's so dark in this tomb

Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away
Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away

Roll away the rock
Take your rock'n'rollin'

Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away
Roll away the rock
Roll the rock away

STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

You came on like an angel
I didn't see the evil in your eyes
I could see, but I was blinded
Oh, believed in your lies

You hit we with your promises
You shot me, I fell to the ground
You're coming's on tomorrow
When I looked
You were nowhere to be found

You set me up right from the start
Strip me of my dignity
You got me straight through the heart
I never did stand a chance
You got me straight through the heart
You got me and left me for dead

You promised me a heaven
Turned out to be but hell all the time
The truth that youíre pretending
Was just a chorus of lies

You set me up right from the start
Strip me of my dignity
And got me straight through the heart
I never did stand a chance
You got me straight through the heart
You got me and left me for dead
You got me and left me for dead

You came on like an angel
Just like an angel
You set me up

You got me straight through the heart
I never did stand a chance
Got me straight through the heart
You got me, you left me
Straight through the heart
You never gave any chance
Got me straight through the heart
I'm bleeding, you're leaving
Got me straight through the heart

WEEKEND WARRIORS (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

Ten thousand stallions running wild
They dare to race, the devil's charm
The race is on, all try the race
They shed a weep of broken chains

Wheels turning, wheels burning
See the eagles fly
Weekend warriors

Like shining nights
All days gone by
They are born again
They'll never die

Wheels turning, wheels burning
See the angels fly
Weekend warriors

Like silver lighting from the sky
These gold-clad horses thunder by

Wheels turning, wheels burning
See the eagles fly
Weekend warriors

Bonus tracks:

PLAYING FOR TIME (Mick Box/Bob Daisley/Peter Goalby/John Sinclair)

Try, you get a roll of heartache
Hear it and you're with my mind
I've played with fire, burned my fingers
Now I'm gonna take my time
You don't have to shout about it
Can't you see it obvious
Feel it's getting close to comfort
Why you make me search no more

Take your time with what you're doin'
I can see the stage appear
Seized and held it on before her
Don't you understand my fear
Can't you see the time will tell us
How it's gonna always be
You can wrap me around your finger
Oh that ain't no mystery

Playing for time
That's all I can do
I'm playing for time
Before I fall in love with you

You can push me every which way
Hey, I got no place to go
Yes, we'll do no rule of devotions
When you got the ace no more
Hold on, that is what the games go
And I want the nibble now
You can get to dream about it
I won't do you anyhow

Playing for time
That's all I can do
Playing for time
Before I fall in love

Playing for time
That's all I wanna do
Playing for time
Before I fall in love

Break off!

Oh, you don't have to shout about it
Can't you see it obvious
Feel it's getting close to comfort
Ohhh, your making such as fuzz
Travel down the road of heartache
Hear it ever in my mind
Played with fire, burned my fingers
Now I'm gonna take my time

Playing for time
Before I fall in love with you
Playing for time
That's all I want to do

Playing for time
Before I fall 
Playing for time
All I wanna do
Playing for time ...

SEARCHING (Peter Goalby)

THE WIZARD (Ken Hensley/Mark Clarke)
(1972) Demons And Wizards

He was the wizard of a thousand kings
And I chanced to meet him one night wandering
He told me tales and he drank my wine
Me and my magic man kinda feeling fine

He had a cloak of gold
And eyes of fire
And as he spoke I felt a deep desire
To free the world of its fear and pain
And help the people to feel free again

Why don't we listen to the voices in our hearts
'Cause then I know we'd find we're not so far apart
Everybody's got to be happy
Everyone should sing
For we know the joy of life
The peace that love can bring

So spoke the wizard in his mountain home
The vision of his wisdom means we'll never be alone
And I will dream of my magic night
And the million silver stars that guide me with their light
