Track Name: Not This Time
Yeah

On the outside looking in
Looking back at where I’ve been
Trapped inside a world so cruel
I don’t want to be nobody’s fool

The devil on my sleeve
Is trying to make me believe

Led into the dark you tried to tempt me
Not this time
Put me under your spell and tried to use me
Not this time

I’m torn apart at the seams
I’m being pulled down in between
Living life by the golden rule
Caught in a rat race run by fools

The angel on my sleeve
Is trying to make me see

Led into the dark you tried to tempt me
Not this time
Put me under your spell and tried to use me
Not this time

Blinded by the light
You tried to guide me
Put me under your spell
Yeah

Not this time

Led into the dark you tried to tempt me
Not this time
Put me under your spell and tried to use me
Not this time
Track Name: Rock and Roll
When I was born, they said I couldn’t be tamed
I grew up kickin’ ass and taking names
I was a boy, became a man
Playing guitar in a rock and roll band

I got my bass, I got my drums
Now it’s time to start having some fun
Let’s jam all night, ‘till the morning light
We ain’t gonna stop tonight

Rock and roll
It’s all I know
Nine to five is not for me
Rock and roll
It’s the way to go
Stand up and be free

I’m livin’ fast, I’m livin’ free
I’ll do my sleeping when I am dead
Crank it up, Let’s hit the top
We ain’t ever gonna stop

Rock and roll
It’s all I know
Nine to five is not for me
Rock and roll
It’s the way to go
Stand up and be free

Yeah yeah
Oh yeah

Rock and roll
Ooh yeah
Rock and roll
It’s all I know
Rock and roll
It’s for you, It’s for me yeah

Ooh yeah

Rock and roll
It’s all I know
Nine to five is not for me
Rock and roll
It’s the way to go
Stand up and be free

Rock and roll
It’s all I know
Nine to five is not for me
Rock and roll
It’s the way to go
Stand up and be free

Stand up and be free
Track Name: Lie to Me
I want you to lie to me
Whisper something just for me
Save the truth It’s not me for
I want you to lie to me

Tell me all the things I want to hear
It doesn’t matter if it’s truth or fantasy
Truth or fantasy
Spare the pain of reality
Cause all I want if for you to lie to me
Lie to me

I want you to lie to me
Whisper something just for me
Save the truth It’s not me for
I want you to lie to me

Say the words that I want to hear
Blind me from this world’s insanity
This insanity
Let me believe all of this is real
Cause all I want is for you to lie to me
Lie to me

I want you to lie to me
Whisper something just for me
Save the truth It’s not me for
I want you to, I want you to

I want you to lie to me
Whisper something just for me
Save the truth It’s not me for
I want you to lie to me

Whoa

I want you to lie to me
Whisper something just for me
Save the truth It’s not me for
I want you to lie to me

Lie to me

I want you to lie to me
Whisper something just for me
Save the truth It’s not me for
I want you to lie to me

Lie to me
Lie to me
Lie to me
Lie to me
Track Name: By the Strings
Once in a lifetime
You find what you’re looking for
Just like a feeling
That you can’t ignore

It feels right
I know this time
When I look at you
I know one thing
It must be true
Oh, if you only knew

It’s the way that you walk
It’s the way that you talk
It’s the way you smile at me
It’s the way that you move
It’s the way that you touch
Girl you’ve got my heart
You’ve got my heart by the strings

By your side
I wear my heart on my sleeve
You stand real close
But I feel so far away

I want to say
How I feel
When I am with you
Just one chance to be with you
Oh, if you only knew

It’s the way that you walk
It’s the way that you talk
It’s the way you smile at me
It’s the way that you move
It’s the way that you touch
Girl you’ve got my heart
You’ve got my heart by the strings

It’s the way that you walk
It’s the way that you talk
It’s the way you smile at me
It’s the way that you move
It’s the way that you touch
Girl you’ve got my heart

It’s the way that you walk
It’s the way that you talk
It’s the way you smile at me
It’s the way that you move
It’s the way that you touch
Girl you’ve got my heart
You’ve got my heart by the strings
Track Name: Can't Get Enough
Oh yeah
Ooh yeah
Yeah yeah

You got a reputation
That’s the word around
The things you do when the lights go down
They call you sweet
They call you sin
Oh baby, baby won’t you let me come in

You got me knockin’
Knockin’ round your door

I can’t get enough
Of all the things you do to me
It’s never enough
This is love in the first degree
I can’t get enough
I’m down on my knees
It’s never enough
Of all the things you do to me

The way you move
That look in your eyes
Anticipation yeah, between those thighs
You start off slow
Words can’t describe
Feels so good when I’m deep inside

You got me beggin’ you
Beggin’ you, beggin’ you please

I can’t get enough
Of all the things you do to me
It’s never enough
This is love in the first degree
I can’t get enough
I’m down on my knees
It’s never enough
Of all the things you do to me

Ooh yeah

I can’t get enough
Of all the things you do to me
It’s never enough
This is love in the first degree
I can’t get enough

It’s not the things you say
You say
It’s all the thing you do
You do
You’re insatiable baby
Can’t wait to have you

It’s never enough
This is love in the first degree
I can’t get enough
I’m down on my knees
It’s never enough
