Track Name: Teen Dream
Give it to me
you know what I mean
c'mon give it to me
teen dream

I like your style
you been around a while
since you were 13

Listening to everything
that's happened in the last two years
and watch you do the things you do
and talk about your hopes and fears
alright what do I care
I like your smile
and your blond hair
you rock n' roll queen

teen dream
I'm glad you came along
you can drive my car
you can do no wrong

When you're out with all your friends
and tell them what's been going on
do you ever think of me
after you have come and gone
alright! you're outta sight!
you rock n' roll queen

give it to me
you know what I mean
c'mon give it to me
teen dream

I like your style
you been around a while
since you were 13

Listening to everything
that's happened in the last two years
and watch you do the things you do
and talk about your hopes and fears

alright
she keeps me warm at night
she's a rock n' roll queen
she's just 13
teen dream
alright
Track Name: Buried Alive
When you break the law
you take that chance
you hope that no one saw you
with the blood on your hands

When you're in a corner
they'll try and flush you out
you can jump the wall
you can hear them shout

I did not really listen
like so many fools
wanting what I'm after
breaking all the rules

they have a place for me
deep underground
they wanna put me there
where I won't be found

I'm buried alive
I can't see the sun
I can barely breathe
I'm under the gun
Track Name: Don't Be Sorry
When I am gone now don't you be sorry
for I will leave you with a song
and I will show you all the chords
so you won't play it wrong
well, alright. yeah, it's alright

Now you don't have to play that song
yeah, it's alright. huh it's alright
now you don't have to play it wrong
now you don't have to sing that song

When things go wrong now won't you remember
I will leave you with the word
and the music will keep changing
it's like nothing you have heard

yeah alright. hey, it's alright.
Now you don't have to play that song
yeah it's alright. oh it's alright
Now you don't have to play it wrong
Now you don't have to sing along
Track Name: Blame It On Me
Nowhere to go
no one to know
looking down
on the street below

They're better off than me
some place to be
do it all for
the money

I don't know where to begin
think I'll stay shut in
waiting for a friend
to rescue me

Looking out my door
can't stand here no more
with all the chances I had
blame it on me
blame it all on me
it's my destiny

There's no excuse
for all my self-abuse
just turn me loose
from responsibility

Nothin' to do
no one to talk to
Nothin' but memories
Where would I be
if things went differently
I could have gone so many ways
Track Name: Up The Stairs
Out on the street
you know in your heart
you don't belong out in the cold
can't look into the stranger's eyes
he's someone I don't know
hey, don't you recognize
it's me with no disguise
don't want to be telling all those lies

can't believe what walked inside
empty rooms with nowhere to hide
up the stairs and to your right
gonna see you there tonight

and you don't tell
all will be well
come dressed in white

out on the street
they'll take your heart
they'll make a joke
as it hits the ground
and then they'll pass
your body around
you can hear a buzzing sound
up the stairs and to your right
you're coming home with me tonight

let me tell you about myself
you and me and nobody else
I'll treat you right
out on the street
Track Name: Graveyard Train
Yeah this town is a drag
and I gotta move on
I gotta bad bad feeling
like I don't belong
It's plain to see
what it's all about
that's right baby
there's only one way out

Yeah, the graveyard train is calling the skull
my boots are worn and my mind is dull
I gotta get out while the going's good
like you never thought I would, uh huh
Track Name: Gone Away
I stood up and told them all I know
I shut up and let the feelings flow
I got up when it was time to go
I thought about the down below
They don't recognize their own

Sweet little Kim just dropped in from New York City
I looked her in the eye when she was alone
I had to go ahead and tell her that she sure looks pretty
Yeah, I think I should have followed her home
I can't take one more night alone

No place to stay
bad luck's come my way
but you know what they say
tomorrow's gonna be another day
hey hey hey I think I'll hit the ol' highway
cause I can't stay, yeah, I got a role to play

I've gone away
Track Name: No Love
Is it all in my mind
or do you like to be treated unkind?
Do you feel unworthy of love?
Tell me, is that what you're thinking of
when you said you have to face it alone
always been on your own.
Is it all in my mind?

Is it all in my mind
or is there no love left to find?

Even in the eyes of a child
and that only lasts for a while
and then the hate comes creepin' in
before any good can begin, child.

Is it all in my mind
or is there no love left to find,
child
Track Name: In The Night
The winter sky is black tonight
I need to try and take a ride
I wanna see you one more time
I got nothin' left to hide

Do you wanna see what it's like
to be calling in the night
for something that's not there

We'll be living under the same sun
we can think about what should be done
but time will let us soon forget
what can never be, we can't regret

Do you wanna feel what it's like
to be calling into the night
for someone who's not there

for something that's not there
Track Name: Road To Recovery
I'm on the road to recovery
I walk back on my own
Can you hear them calling me
I got through on the phone

Picking up where I left off
before it was too late
I was the poor unfortunate one
who had no time to wait

I gotta stay alive
for the sake of rock n' roll
I gotta make the climb
from the bottom of the hole

I'm on the road to recovery
I got back on the ball
I made a new discovery
it wasn't nothing at all

I gotta stay alive
for the sake of rock n' roll
I gotta make the long climb
from the bottom of the hole
