DEATH ALLEY DRIVER
(Blackmore/Turner)

Rough and ready rider
In a supersonic sound machine
Rock and Roll survivor
Chrome pipes between your knees
Running all the red lites
Your gonna make a dead stop
But you just can't see the signs
Oh, you'll never win the race
But you can't give up the chase

Death alley driver
Living at high speed
Death alley driver,.Yeah
Death alley driver, who knows what you need
Death alley driver

One hundred twenty five smokin' on the turns
Always on the hit and run
But you never learn
Running from the man, and you're running from yourself
Another dirty angel heading straight to hell
Oh, you'll never win the race
But you won't give up the chase
Death alley driver
Live in overdrive, Death alley driver, yeah
Death alley driver, ride to stay alive
Death alley driver
let's go

Red lights in the mirror
Danger on the band
Got to take a detour cause a road block's up ahead
He takes you on the corner with a wave of his hand
Death is in the back seat of a big old black sedan
Oh, you'll never win the race
As you turn and see his face

Death alley driver
Movin' for the kill
Death alley driver...yeah
Death alley driver
Time is standing still
Death alley driver
Always on the run cause you're a
Death alley driver
Love the way it feels
Death alley driver, yeah
Death alley driver
Hell on wheels
Death alley driver, ooh

 

STONE COLD
(Blackmore/Glover/Turner)

Every night I have the same old dream
'Bout you and me and what's in between
So many changes, so many lies
Try to run, try to hide
From everything that I feel inside
But I can't escape you or your frozen eyes
Searching in the darkness
Fading out of sight
Love was here and gone like a thief in the night
Stone Cold
and I thought I knew you so well
Stone Cold
Can't break away from your spell

Another dark and empty night
If I was wrong I wanna make it right
But you are so distant, so far away
Your words like ice fall on the ground
Breaking the silence without a sound
Oh familiar strangers with nothing to say
Searching in the darkness
Fading out of sight
Love was here and gone like a thief in the night
Stone Cold
And I thought I knew you so well
Stone Cold
Can't break away from your spell
You leave me Stone Cold

Searching in the darkness
Fading out of sight
Love was here and gone like a thief in the night
Stone Cold
And I thought I knew you so well
Stone Cold
Can't break away from your spell
You're Stone Cold, yeah
I can't break away from your spell
Stone Cold, baby
I thought I knew you so well
You're stone cold, ice cold
Can't break away from your spell
(you put me in the deep freeze)
(oh baby don't you leave me)
(stone...cold, your leavin' me cold)
Stone Cold, I thought I knew you so well
Stone Cold, Can't break away from your spell

 

BRING ON THE NIGHT (Dream Chaser)
(Blackmore/Glover/Turner)

I was taking a chance on a tightrope
Walking the line to the end
I was ready to fall had my back to the wall
But I'm flying again
I been shifting my gears. I been moving
Cause they wanted me dead or alive
But I'm making a break and I want you to take a ride
Take a ride
Bring on the night
into the shadows and out of the light
Bring on the night
Let the Dream Chaser take you away

When the sun hits another horizon
And the joker has started to deal
You can quit if you choose but there's nothing to lose
By a spin of the wheel
Gotta burn all your bridges behind you, they'll keep dragging
You down if you stay
And I know I ain't wrong cause I'm free and I'm on my way
On my way
Bring on the night
Into the shadows and out of the light
Bring on the night
Let the Dream Chaser take you away

I live on the edge of tomorrow
I'm racing along on the wind
I can see what I need, you better believe
I'm playin' to win
I got nothin' to fear when I'm flyin
Cause yesterday's over and gone
And there's nothin' I can do, so I gotta keep movin' on
Movin' on
Movin' on
Bring on the night
into the shadows and out of the light
Bring on the night
Let the Dream Chaser take you away, take you away
Bring on the night
" Dream Chaser"

 

TITE SQUEEZE
(Blackmore/Glover/Turner)

I ain't lyin' to you baby, I hope you don't refuse
But I'm red hot, Ready or not, to give my love to you
I don't have forever, but I got tonight
The look in your eye said you'll give it a try
I know the moment's right
Ooh, give it to me, you got everything I need
Ooh, do it to me, Bring me to my knees
When you gimme that tite squeeze
Baby, baby please
Gimme that tite squeeze

When you start to touch me, I can't believe it's real
You make it hard for me to take. I love the way you feel
I'm hungry for you baby, I just can't get enough
If it's all right I'll take a bite, I'll taste your love
Ooh, give it to me, you got everything I need
Ooh, do it to me, Bring me to my knees
When you gimme that tite squeeze
Gimme that tite squeeze, yeah

Rock me in your cradle, roll me like the dice
Do it to me and I'll do it to you, do it till we do it right
Don't tell me that you love me, when you walk out the door
cause I'll hold you down, turn you around, I'll come back for more
Ooh, give it to me, you got everything I need
Ooh, do it to me, Bring me to my knees
When you gimme that tite, tite, tite yeah
Gimme that tite squeeze, ooh baby, gimme that tite squeeze
Oh, bring me to my knees, gimme that tite squeeze

 

TEARIN' OUT MY HEART
(Blackmore/Glover/Turner)

First time I saw your face
By your side was the place
That I would wanna be
Sometimes and I don't know why
Love can come or it can pass you by
Now you take all the love you gave to me
(you take it from me)
You're tearin' out my heart
Oh,
Never thought I'd see the day
You would throw my love away
And oh...it's killing me
One thing you'll never know
How it hurts to let you go
As you turn and walk away from me
(walk away)
You're tearin out my heart
Feel like I been ripped apart
You're tearin out my heart

Daybreaks I try to be free
But your memory is haunting me
Oh, there's nothing I can do
All alone in the candlelight
I see your face again tonight
And I feel all the emptiness without you
(without you) tearin' out my heart
Oh, I feel like I been ripped apart
Tearin' out my heart
whoa, my heart

 

POWER
(Blackmore/Glover/Turner)

Everybody's sayin' that the times are getting rough
You gotta stay loose baby and you gotta be tough, oh
I get knocked down, get right back up again
Cause I never give up and I never give in
Oh, so strong
Got the power when I turn it on
Yeah, I'm gonna get my fill
Nothin's gonna stop me now and nothin' ever will

I got the, power
I got the power
I feel the power
And don't forget it

Make some, break some ain't no big surprise
They're gonna wheel ya, deal ya, tell ya all the lies, (realize)
But I'm a hot shot, shoot em down let me be (that's me)
Cause I got nothin' for nothin' and nothin's ever free...no
Oh, so strong
All I gotta do is turn it on
Yeah, I'm gonna get my fill
Nothin's gonna stop me now and nothin' ever will
I got the power
Oh, I got the power
I can feel the power
I got the power
Yeah yeah yeah, turn it on

I can take anything that gets in my way
I don't worry 'bout tomorrow I just live for today
Oh, so strong
Got that feeling when I turn it on
Yeah - I'm gonna get my fill
Nothin's gonna stop me now and nothin' ever will

I got the power
I can feel the power
Power
I can feel the power
Turn it on
Power (can you feel it)
Power

(you can turn it on, turn it on, switch it on behind)
(Super charged, I can feel the power)

 

MISS MISTREATED
(Blackmore/Turner/Rosenthal)

I know you been runnin' around
I know what you been sayin'
I treat you wrong, keep lettin' you down
I'm not giving what I'm taking
So hurt, deep inside
you say ther's nothin' to it
But my eyes are open wide
And I don't know why you do it
you say I cheated, you say that I lied
People tell ya I'm taking you for a ride
Oh but baby they lied

Give you my love, I'll give you all of my time
Just to keep you satisfied
It's never enough until it's over the time
So you're livin' on the wild side
Undercover lovers late at night
Won't take the pain away
Two wrongs don't make a right
But you wanna make me pay
I know, love can be real
You're not the only one whose got a bad deal
I know just how you, oh yeah
MISS Mistreated, whose mistreatin' who
You think it's me, I think it's you, yes I do
MISS Mistreated
MISS Mistreated
MISS Mistreated
MISS Mistreated

I wanna know, love can be real
You're not the only one whose got a bad deal
I know how you feel, ooh
MISS Mistreated, whose mistreating who
You think it's me, I think it's you, yes I do

MISS Mistreated
MISS Mistreated, so wrong
MISS Mistreated
MISS Mistreated
I never meant to hurt you baby
MISS Mistreated
I never meant to hurt you baby
MISS Mistreated

 

ROCK FEVER
(Blackmore/Turner)

Lookin' like little miss lonely
Standin' in her ruby red shoes
Tellin' me she loves me only
Even if it ain't true
Ooh you, drippin' with desire
Skin tight, dynamite
Fever takes me higher

Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn
Rock fever
Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn
Rock fever

Yeah, gonna give it to you tonight (rock fever)

I can feel your blood run hot
Burnin' with a fire
Gimme everything you got
Right down to the wire
Ooh, temperature is risin'
Ain't no use I'm breakin' loose
I ain't gonna fight it

Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn
Rock fever
Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn
Rock fever

Yeah, gonna give it to you tonight (rock fever)

Come on, let me give you a shot...

44 calibre rock and roll
Fever deep inside her
Hits me straight between the eyes
When she opens fire
Ooh, you
Dripping with desire
Skin tight, you're dynamite
I can't get much higher

Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn
Rock fever
Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn
Rock fever

Yeah, gonna give it to you tonight (rock fever)

Lemme see ya rock
Lemme see ya roll
Lemme see ya burn

EYES OF FIRE
(Blackmore/Turner/Rondinelli)

Hungry and wild she was born to the night
A demon, a daughter or madness
One look from her eyes could burn you alive
Drown you in oceans of sadness
Oh, even the deadly shades of night
Won't let me hide, from her eyes of fire

Face in the mirror we meet eye to eye
Passions of eternal fire
Desperately wanting and out of control
Dancing on winds of desire
Oh, even the deadly shades of night
Won't let me hide...from her eyes of fire

Curtain of darkness, screams of delight
Taunts me with her sirens callin.
I got to be strong but I can't hang on
Into the flames I am falling
Oh, even the deadly shades of night
Won't let me hide (no, no, no, no)
from her eyes of fire

She keeps burning
She keeps burning me, burning me, burning me, burning me down
Eyes of fire
