Lyrics I WAS NOTHING
BUT A LONELY BOY,
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW.
AND YOU WERE NOTHING
BUT A LONELY GIRL,
BUT YOU WERE SOMETHING,
SOMETHING
LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE.
I WAS A UNIVERSITY TACKLE
AND A HELL OF A BLOCK.
WHEN I PLAYED MY GUITAR,
I MADE THE CANYONS ROCK.
BUT, EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT,
I FELT THE FEVER GROW.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE?
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
DO YOU KNOW
WHAT IT'S LIKE?
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
IN THE MIDDLE
OF A STEAMY NIGHT
I'M TOSSING IN MY SLEEP.
AND IN THE MIDDLE
OF A RED-EYED DREAM
I SEE YOU COMING,
COMING ON TO ME.
I WAS OUT ON THE PROWL,
DOWN BY THE EDGE
OF THE TRACK,
AND LIKE THE SON OF A JACKAL,
I'M THE LEADER OF THE PACK.
BUT, EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT,
I FELT THE FEVER GROW.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE?
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE?
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.

OH, BABY,
I'M A HUNTER
IN THE DARK OF THE FOREST,
I'VE BEEN STALKING YOU,
AND TRACKING YOU DOWN.
CRUISING UP AND DOWN
THE MAIN DRAG
ALL NIGHT LONG.
WE COULD BE STANDING
ON TOP OF THE WORLD,
INSTEAD OF SINKING
FURTHER DOWN IN THE MUD.
YOU AND ME,
'ROUND ABOUT MIDNIGHT,
YOU AND ME,
'ROUND ABOUT MIDNIGHT,
SOMEONE'S
GOT TO DRAW FIRST,
DRAW FIRST,
SOMEONE'S
GOT TO DRAW FIRST BLOOD.
SOMEONE'S
GOT TO DRAW FIRST BLOOD.
OOH,
I GOT TO DRAW FIRST BLOOD.
OOH,
I GOT TO DRAW FIRST BLOOD.

I WAS NOTHING
BUT A LONELY BOY,
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW.
AND YOU WERE NOTHING
BUT A LONELY GIRL,
BUT YOU WERE SOMETHING,
SOMETHING LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE.
I WAS A UNIVERSITY TACKLE
AND A HELL OF A BLOCK.
WHEN I PLAYED MY GUITAR,
I MADE THE CANYONS ROCK.
BUT, EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT,
I FELT THE FEVER GROW.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE?
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE?
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
WELL I WAS NOTHING
BUT A LONELY,
ALL-AMERICAN BOY,
LOOKING OUT FOR SOMETHING TO DO.
AND YOU WERE NOTHING
BUT A LONELY
ALL-AMERICAN GIRL,
BUT YOU WERE SOMETHING
LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE.
I WAS A UNIVERSITY TACKLE,
AND A HELL OF A BLOCK,
AND WHEN I PLAYED MY GUITAR,
I MADE THE CANYON ROCK.
BUT EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT,
I FELT THE FEVER GROW.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.
ALL REVVED UP,
AND NO PLACE TO GO.

Lyrics ARE YOU READY,
ARE YOU READY,
ARE YOU READY.

SWEET APPLE PIE
STANDING IN THE STREET,
HANDS OUTTA LINE
LOOKING FOR SOME MEAT,
SHE'LL TAKE YOU HIGH
WHEN YOU FEEL HER STING,
SHE'LL MAKE YOU FLY
THEN YOU'RE COMING.

WHO ALL NEED IT,
WHO!
WHO ALL NEED IT,
YOU!
WHO ALL NEED IT,
WHO ALL BLEED IT,
YOU ALL BREATHE IT,
WE ALL NEED IT.

ARE YOU READY
FOR A GOOD TIME,
THEN GET READY
FOR THE NIGHTLINE.
ARE YOU READY
FOR A GOOD TIME,
THEN GET READY
FOR THE NIGHTLINE.
ARE YOU READY
FOR A GOOD TIME.

SHE'S MAKING EYES
AT EVERYTHING SHE MEET,
AIN'T IT A CRIME
WHEN SHE MAKE YOU PUMP HEAT,
SHE'LL MAKE YOU FLY
BECAUSE THAT'S HER THING,
SHE'LL MAKE YOU DRY
THEN YOU KNOW
YOU'RE BROKEN IN.

WHO ALL NEED IT,
WHO ALL NEED IT,
YOU ALL BREATHE IT,
WE ALL BLEED IT.

ARE YOU READY
FOR A GOOD TIME,
ARE YOU READY
FOR A GOOD TIME,
ARE YOU READY
FOR THE GOOD TIMES,
ARE YOU READY
FOR THE GOOD TIME.

Lyrics BACK IN BLACK
I HIT THE SACK
I'VE BEEN TOO LONG,
I'M GLAD TO BE BACK.
YES, I'M LET LOOSE
FROM THE NOOSE
THAT'S KEPT ME
HANGIN' A BOUT.
I KEEP LOOKIN'
AT THE SKY
'CAUSE
IT'S GETTIN' ME HIGH,
FORGET THE HEARSE
'CAUSE I'LL NEVER DIE.
I GOT NINE LIVES,
CAT'S EYES,
A-BUSIN' EV'RY ONE
OF THEM
AND RUNNIN' WILD.

'CAUSE I'M BACK,
YES I'M BACK.
WELL I'M BACK,
YES I'M BACK,
WELL I'M BACK,
BACK.
WELL
I'M BACK IN BLACK,
YES,
I'M BACK IN BLACK.

BACK IN THE BACK
OF A CADILLAC,
NUMBER ONE
WITH A BULLET,
I'M A POWER PACK.
YES, I'M IN A BANG
WITH THE GANG,
THEY GOTTA CATCH ME
IF THEY WANT ME TO HANG
'CAUSE I'M BACK
ON THE TRACK,
AND I'M BEATIN'
THE FLACK,
NOBODY'S
GONNA GET ME
ON ANOTHER RAP
SO, LOOK AT ME NOW,
I'M JUST MAKIN' MY PLAY,
DON'T TRY
TO PUSH YOUR LUCK,
JUST GET OUTTA MY WAY.

Lyrics SITTING DOWN BY MY WINDOW,
AND I WAS LOOKIN' OUT AT THE RAIN
SITTING DOWN BY MY WINDOW, BABY,
AND I WAS SITTIN' THERE
LOOKIN' OUT AT THE RAIN
YOU KNOW SOMETHIN' STRUCK ME,
CLAMPED ON TO ME JUST LIKE A...
JUST LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN.

I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO
THESE OL' MEAN THINGS
I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO
THESE OL' MEAN THINGS TO ME
BECAUSE YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU,
AND I'M SO SICK
AND TIRED OF LIVIN' IN MISERY.

I KNOW YOU GONNA MISS ME, BABY,
OH YES, YOU'RE GONNA MISS
ALL OF THOSE SWEET THINGS.
I KNOW YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME, BABY,
YOU'RE GONNA MISS
ALL OF THOSE SWEET, SWEET THINGS.
AND THEN YOU'LL FIND
THAT YOUR WHOLE LIFE
WILL BE LIKE MINE,
ALL WRAPPED UP
LIKE A BALL AND CHAIN.

I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO THESE OL' MEAN THINGS
I SAID, OH, OH, BABY,
WHY YOU WANNA DO
THESE OL' MEAN THINGS TO ME
I SAID THAT LOVE'S
GONNA LAST WITH YOU FOREVER,
IT'S GONNA LAST,
I SAID IT'S GONNA LAST,
OH, GREAT GOD ALMIGHTY,
FOR ALL ETERNITY,
WHOA, YEAH.

Lyrics THE SIRENS
ARE SCREAMING
AND THE FIRES
ARE HOWLING
WAY DOWN
IN THE VALLEY
TONIGHT.
THERE'S A MAN
IN THE SHADOWS
WITH A GUN
IN HIS EYE,
AND A BLADE SHINING
OH, SO BRIGHT.
THERE'S EVIL
IN THE AIR
AND THERE'S THUNDER
IN THE SKY,
AND A KILLER'S ON
THE BLOODSHOT STREETS.
AND DOWN IN THE TUNNEL
WHERE THE DEADLY
ARE RISING,
OH, I SWEAR
I SAW A YOUNG BOY
DOWN IN THE GUTTER,
HE WAS STARTING
TO FOAM
IN THE HEAT.

OH, BABY,
YOU'RE THE ONLY THING
IN THIS WHOLE WORLD
THAT'S PURE
AND GOOD
AND RIGHT.
AND WHEREVER
YOU ARE,
AND WHEREVER
YOU GO,
THERE'S ALWAYS GONNA BE
SOME LIGHT.
BUT I GOTTA GET OUT,
I GOTTA BREAK IT OUT
NOW,
BEFORE THE FINAL CRACK
OF DAWN.
SO WE GOTTA MAKE
THE MOST
OF OUR ONE NIGHT
TOGETHER,
WHEN IT'S OVER
YOU KNOW,
WE'LL BOTH BE
SO ALONE.

LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL,
I'LL BE GONE
WHEN THE MORNING COMES.
WHEN THE NIGHT IS OVER,
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL,
I'LL BE GONE,
GONE,
GONE.
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL,
I'LL BE GONE
WHEN THE MORNING COMES.
BUT WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
AND THE SUN GOES DOWN
AND THE MOONLIGHT'S
SHINING THROUGH...
THEN LIKE A SINNER
BEFORE THE GATES
OF HEAVEN,
I'LL COME CRAWLING
ON BACK TO YOU.

I'M GONNA HIT
THE HIGHWAY
LIKE A BATTERING RAM
ON A SILVER
BLACK
PHANTOM BIKE.
WHEN THE METAL
IS HOT
AND THE ENGINE
IS HUNGRY,
AND WE'RE ALL
ABOUT TO SEE
THE LIGHT.
NOTHING EVER GROWS
IN THIS ROTTING
OLD HOLE,
AND EVERYTHING
IS STUNTED
AND LOST.
AND NOTHING
REALLY ROCKS
AND NOTHING
REALLY ROLLS,
AND NOTHING'S
EVER
WORTH THE COST.
AND I KNOW
THAT I'M DAMNED
IF I NEVER GET OUT,
AND MAYBE I'M DAMNED
IF I DO.
BUT WITH EVERY OTHER BEAT
I GOT LEFT IN MY HEART,
YOU KNOW I'D RATHER
BE DAMNED WITH YOU.
IF I GOTTA
BE DAMNED,
YOU KNOW I WANNA
BE DAMNED,
DANCING
THROUGH THE NIGHT
WITH YOU.
IF I GOTTA
BE DAMNED,
YOU KNOW I WANNA
BE DAMNED,
GOTTA BE DAMNED,
YOU KNOW I WANNA
BE DAMNED,
GOTTA BE DAMNED,
YOU KNOW I WANNA
BE DAMNED,
DANCING
THROUGH THE NIGHT,
DANCING
THROUGH THE NIGHT,
DANCING
THROUGH THE NIGHT
WITH YOU.
OH,

THE SIRENS
ARE SCREAMING
AND THE FIRES
ARE HOWLING
WAY DOWN
IN THE VALLEY
TONIGHT.
THERE'S A MAN
IN THE SHADOWS
WITH A GUN
IN HIS EYE,
AND A BLADE SHINING
OH, SO BRIGHT.
THERE'S EVIL
IN THE AIR
AND THERE'S THUNDER
IN THE SKY,
AND A KILLER'S ON

AND DOWN IN THE TUNNEL

TO FOAM
IN THE HEAT.

OH, BABY,
YOU'RE THE ONLY THING

YOU ARE,
AND WHEREVER

THERE'S ALWAYS

BEFORE THE GATES
OF HEAVEN,
I'LL COME CRAWLING
ON BACK TO YOU.
THEN LIKE A SINNER
BEFORE THE GATES
OF HEAVEN,
I'LL COME CRAWLING
ON BACK TO YOU.

I CAN SEE MYSELF
TEARING UP THE ROAD,
FASTER THAN ANY OTHER BOY
HAS EVER GONE.
AND MY SKIN IS RAW
BUT MY SOUL IS RIPE,
AND NO ONE'S GONNA
STOP ME NOW,
I'M GONNA MAKE
MY ESCAPE!
BUT I CAN'T STOP
THINKING OF YOU,
AND I NEVER SEE
THE SUDDEN CURVE
TILL IT'S WAY
TOO LATE.
AND I NEVER SEE
THE SUDDEN CURVE
TILL IT'S WAY
TOO LATE.

THEN I'M DYING
AT THE BOTTOM
OF THE PIT
IN THE BLAZING SUN.
TORN AND TWISTED
AT THE FOOT
OF A BURNING BIKE.
AND I THINK

SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE
MUST BE TOLLING
A BELL.
AND THE LAST THING
I SEE
IS MY HEART
STILL BEATING.
BREAKING OUT
OF MY BODY,
AND FLYING AWAY,
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!
THEN I'M DYING
AT THE BOTTOM
OF A PIT
IN THE BLAZING SUN.
TORN AND TWISTED
AT THE FOOT
OF A BURNING BIKE.
AND I THINK
SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE
MUST BE TOLLING
A BELL.
AND THE LAST THING
I SEE
IS MY HEART,
STILL BEATING...
STILL BEATING.
BREAKING OUT
OF MY BODY
AND FLYING AWAY,
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!
LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL!

Lyrics BIG DIAMONDS,
BIG BLUE DIAMONDS.
ON HER FINGER
INSTEAD OF
A LITTLE BAND OF GOLD.
BIG DIAMONDS,
BIG BLUE DIAMONDS.
TELL THE STORY
OF A LOVE
THAT NO MAN
COULD EVER HOLD.
SHE WANTED MORE
THAN I HAD
MONEY TO BUY,
SO SHE LEFT ME
AND GOT LONESOME
I'M TOLD.
BIG DIAMONDS,
BIG BLUE DIAMONDS.
NOW SHE'LL TRADE THEM
FOR THE LOVE
BEHIND THAT LITTLE
BAND OF GOLD.

BIG DIAMONDS,
BIG BLUE DIAMONDS.
HOW THEY SPARKLE,
BUT WHAT CAN THEY DO
TO WARM YOUR SOUL?
WHEN YOU'RE LONESOME
IN THE MOONLIGHT
YOU WANT LOVIN',
BIG BLUE DIAMONDS,
THEY'RE SO HEARTLESS
AND COLD.
I'D GLADLY DO MY PART
TO MEND
HER BROKEN HEART,
BUT LOVE
THAT'S WARMED OVER
GROWS COLD.
BIG DIAMONDS,
BIG BLUE DIAMONDS.
I DON'T WANT THEM,
I JUST WANT A LOVE
BEHIND
A BAND OF GOLD.

THEY'LL CANNIBALISE,
TEAR FLESH OFF YOU.
CLASSIFIED LADY KILLERS
PREYING IN THE HUMAN ZOO,
THEY SADDLE YOU UP
AND TAKE YOU TO TOWN,
BETTER LOOK OUT

Lyrics SLIPPIN' AWAY,
SITTIN' ON A PILLOW,
WAITIN' FOR THE NIGHT
TO FALL.
A GIRL AND A DREAM
SITTIN' ON A PILLOW.
THIS IS THE NIGHT
TO GO TO
THE CELEBRITY BALL.
SATIN AND LACE,
ISN'T IT A PITY,
DIDN'T FIND TIME
TO CALL.
READY OR NOT,
GONNA MAKE IT TO THE CITY,
THIS IS THE NIGHT
TO GO TO
THE CELEBRITY BALL.

DRESS UP TONIGHT,
WHY BE LONELY?
YOU'LL STAY AT HOME
AND YOU'LL BE ALONE,
SO WHY BE LONELY?

SITTIN' ALONE,
SITTIN' ON A PILLOW,
WAITING TO
CLIMB THE WALLS.
MAYBE TONIGHT
DEPENDING HOW
YOUR DREAM GOES
SHE'LL OPEN HER EYES
WHEN SHE GOES TO
THE CELEBRITY BALL.

Lyrics I GOT BACK IN TOWN
A DAY BEFORE
I PLANNED TO,
I SMILED AND SAID
I'LL SURE SURPRISE MY WIFE,
I DON'T THINK I'LL PHONE,
I'LL JUST HEAD ON HOME,
FOR I DIDN'T KNOW
THE COLD HARD FACTS
OF LIFE.
I PASSED A LITTLE WINE STORE
ON THE CORNER,
I PICTURED BIG CHAMPAGNE
BY CANDLE LIGHT.
I STOPPED THE CAR
RIGHT THEN,
GOT OUT
AND HURRIED IN,
MY MIND NOT ON
THE COLD HARD FACTS OF LIFE.
A STRANGER STOOD THERE
LAUGHING BY THE COUNTER,
HE SAID
I'LL TAKE TWO BOTTLES
OF YOUR BEST,
HER HUSBAND'S OUT OF TOWN
AND THERE'S A PARTY,
HE WINKED AS IF TO SAY
YOU KNOW THE REST.
I LEFT THE STORE
TWO STEPS BEHIND THE STRANGER,
FROM THERE TO MY HOUSE
HE STAYED IN SIGHT.
BUT IT WASN'T TILL HE TURNED
INTO MY DRIVE
THAT I LEARNED
I WAS WITNESSING
THE COLD HARD FACTS OF LIFE.
I DROVE AROUND THE BLOCK
TILL I WAS DIZZY,
EACH TIME THE NOISE
CAME LOUDER FROM WITHIN,
AND THEN I SAW
OUR BOTTLE THERE BESIDE ME,
AND I DRANK A FIFTH OF COURAGE
AND WALKED IN.
LORD, YOU SHOULD'VE SEEN
THEIR FRANTIC FACES,
THEY SCREAMED AND CRIED
PLEASE PUT AWAY THAT KNIFE,
I GUESS I'LL GO TO HELL
OR I'LL ROT HERE
IN THE CELL.
BUT WHO TAUGHT WHO
THE COLD HARD FACTS OF LIFE,
WHO TAUGHT WHO
THE COLD HARD FACTS OF LIFE.
