SPOTLIGHT KID
(Blackmore/Glover)

You don't know what's happening,
you want to go home
but there's nowhere to hide
you walk out on stage, your first time alone
the crowd's going wild
and you feel so alive
you could stand up and take this all night
they love you but you're in love with the spotlight
you're the spotlight kid

Jokers and women they hang 'round your door
they're all part of the scene
just like a junkie you've got to have more
it's a pleasure machine
and you fly every night
but the dressing room mirror don't lie
they love you but you're in love with the spotlight
you're the spotlight kid

Your audience died, faded away
leaving you on the stage
it's been so many years since that first matinee
it seems like an age
encore one more time

for the ghosts of the past in your mind
they love you but you're in love with the spotlight
you're the spotlight kid
you're living in a dream
you're the spotlight kid
you're in love with the spotlight

 

I SURRENDER
(Ballard)

I surrender to your heart babe
do anything that you want me to do
please be tender I'm in your hands girl
this is a feeling I never knew
you know I tried to make it on my own
that's not the way it was meant to be
spend my time waiting by the phone
oh darling come back to me

I surrder, I surrender
I'm giving up the role of pretender
oh be tender, girl be tender
can't you feel the love that I send you
I surrender.

I remember, seems like a lifetime
can't believe it's a matter of days
since you left I'm near to heartbreak
I want you so bad don't turn away
what does it take to stay by my side
you know I'll do what you want me to
don't take away this feeling inside
I'm still in love with you

I surrender, I surrender
I'm giving up the role of pretender
oh be tender, girl be tender
can't you feel the love that I send you
I surrender.

I surrender, I surrender
darling now won't you be tender
surrender, oh surrender
feel the love that I send you
I surrender.

 

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 mistreatin 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...

repeat till fade

 

 

STREET OF DREAMS
(Blackmore/Turner)

I heard the sound of voices in the night
Spellbound there was someone calling
I looked around no one was in sight
Pulled down I just kept on falling
I've seen this place before
You were standing by my side
I've seen your face before tonight
Maybe I just see what I want it to be
I know it's a mystery
Do you remember me on a street of dreams
Running through my memory
On the street of dreams

There you stood a distant memory
So good like we never parted
Said to myself I knew you'd set me free
And here we are right back where we started
Something's come over me
And I don't know what to feel
Maybe this fantasy is real
Now I know I see what I want it to be
But it's still a mystery

Do you remember me on the street of dreams
Running through my memory
On the street of dreams
You are on every face I see
On the street of dreams

Tell me have you always been
On the street of dreams
Will we ever meet again my friend
Do you know just what it ment to be
On the street of dreams
Never know just who you'll see do ya
On the street of dreams
You can be who you want to be oh yeah
I can hear you calling me
I can feel you haunting me
Haunting me

 

 

JEALOUS LOVER
(Blackmore/Turner)

Lost and lonely, clouds hide the sun
Out on a highway, it's all you can run
Cold empty nights, devils in my head
It's something I've been, oh baby something you said

And it's hard to discover
That you're just another jealous lover
And it's so tough to take
That you're making no mistake jealous lover
Oh girl don't want no other

Shades of red, eyes of green
She's got me waiting, there's no inbetween
Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
Still you keep thinking that it's all paradise

And it's hard to discover
You're like any other jealous lover
And you say I'm afraid
That you're making no mistake, oh

In the day it's the same, the faces and the names
How long can I go on playing this game
So I live for the night, salt and the lights
To really love you and tomorrow they might

But it's hard to face
No one else tales your place jealous lover
And they say that's the breaks
But I got what it takes jealous lover, oh

I'm a jealous lover
Jealous lover
Don't need no, don't need no, don't need no other
Jealous lover, yeah
Jealous lover, oh
Jealous lover.


 

CAN'T HAPPEN HERE
(Blackmore/Glover)

Contaminated fish and micro chips
Huge supertankers on Arabian trips
Oily propaganda from the leaders' lips
All about the future
There's people over here, people over there
Everybody's looking for a little more air
Crossing all the borders just to take their share
Planning for the future

And we're so abused, and we're so confused
It's easy to believe that someone's gonna light the fuse
Can't happen here, can't happen here
All that you fear they're telling you, can't happen here

Supersonic planes for a holiday boom
Rio de Janeiro in an afternoon
People out of work but there's people on the moon
Looking for the future
Concrete racktracks nationwide
Juggernauts carving up the countryside
Cars by the million on a one way ride
Using up the future

And we're so abused, and we're so confused
It's easy to believe that someone's gonna light the fuse
Can't happen here, can't happen here
All that you fear they're telling you, can't happen here

Satellites spying for the CIA
The KGB and the men in grey
Wonder if I'm gonna see another day
Somewhere in the future
We got everything we need for a peaceful time
Take what you want but you can't take mine
Everybody's living on the sacred line
Worried 'bout the future
And we're so abused, and we're so confused
It's so easy to believe that someone's gonna light it
Easy to believe someone's gonna light the fuse
Can't happen here, can't happen here
All that you fear they're telling you, can't happen here can it?

 

 

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

 

 

SINCE YOU BEEN GONE
(Ballard)

I get the same old dreams same time everynight
Fall to the ground and I wake up
So I get out of bed, put on my shoes and in my head
Thoughts fly back to the breakup

These four wall are closing in
Look at the fix you put me in

Since you been gone
Since you been gone
I'm out of my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
But since you been gone
You cast your spell so break it
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Since you been gone

So in the night I stand beneath the backstreet light
I read the words that you sent to me
I can take the afternoon, the night time comes around too soon
You can't know what you mean to me

Your poison letter, your telegram
Just goes to show you don't give a damn

Since you been gone
Since you been gone
I'm out of my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
But since you been gone
You cast your spell so break it
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Since you been gone

If you will come back
Baby, you know you'll never do wrong

Since you been gone
Since you been gone
I'm out of my head can't take it
Could I be wrong
But since you been gone
You cast your spell so break it
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ever since you been gone

Since you been gone
Since you been gone
I'm out of my head can't take it
Since you been gone
Since you been gone
I'm out of my head can't take it

 

BAD GIRL
(Blackmore/Glover)

She steals my love out a way that she licks her lips
She's got that look right down to her fingertips
My mind says something's wrong when she whips her eye
But when he told me something else that can never lie
And everytime that she touches me I just wanna die.

Chorus:
She's a bad girl
She's a bad girl
She's a bad girl
And I can't explain
How I feel, is it real
Is it love by another name?

Oooh, and when I'm all alone in the night
I call her up on the telephone and feel allright
When she shakes my tambourine I start to dance inside
That she throws my proud a switch and let het fingers glide
I don't need to go that way but I sure like the ride.

Chorus

She's so bad

Oooh, she steals my love out a way she licks her lips
She'a got that look right down to her fingertips
My mind says something's wrong when she whips her eye
But he told me seomething elsee I can never, never, never lie
And everytime that she touches me I just wanna die.

Chorus

 

DIFFICULT TO CURE
(Beethoven; rearranged by Blackmore/Glover/Airey)

Instrumental

 

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

repeat til fade

Cause I never give up and I never give in...

MAN ON THE SILVER MOUNTAIN
(Blackmore/Dio)

I'm a wheel, I'm a wheel,
I can roll, I can feel.
And you can't stop me turning.
Cause I'm the sun, I'm the sun,
I can move, I can run.
But you'll never stop me burning!

Coming down with fire, to lift my spirit higher.
Someone's screaming my name.
" Come and make me holy again!"

I'm the man on the silver mountain.
I'm the man on the silver mountain.

I'm the day, I'm the day,
I can show you the way.
And look! I'm right beside you!
I'm the night, I'm the night,
I'm the dark and the light.
With eyes that see inside you.

Coming down with fire, to lift my spirit higher.
Someone's screaming my name.
" Come and make me holy again!"

I'm the man on the silver mountain.
I'm the man on the silver mountain.

 

LONG LIVE ROCK'N'ROLL
(Blackmore/Dio)

At the end of a dream
If you know where I mean
When the mist just starts to clear

In a similar way
At the end of today
I could feel the sound of writing on the wall
It cries for you
It's the least that you can do

Like a spiral on the wind
I can hear it screamin' in my mind
Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock 'n' Roll
Long live Rock and Roll

in a different time
When the words didn't rhyme
You could never quite be sure
Then on with the change
It was simple but strange
And you knew the feeling seemed to say it all
It cries for you
It's the least that you can do
Like a spiral on the wind
I can hear it screamin' in my mind
Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock 'n' Roll
Long live Rock and Roll

If you suddenly see
What has happened to me
You should spread the word around

And tell everyone here
That it's perfectly clear
They can sail above it all on what they've found
It cries for you
It's the best that you can do
Like a sound that's everywhere
I can hear it screaming through the air
Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock 'n' Roll
Long live Rock and Roll
