ACDEFHILMOSTUWY


1000 MILES AWAY
(“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

I see reflections in a mirror a shattered tears in the fallin’ rain
I feel your presence at beside me, but like a dream
you are so far away
Just like sand running through my hands
we tried to hold love but it just slipped away
Was I so wrong to keep you holding on?
Hoping someday that we would find a way… to make love stay
There’s nothing left to say as I send these tears a thousand miles away
Still holding on, on to the memories, lost in your heart
blinded by love, you said
If I had known, we could have found a way,
Is it too late to bring you back to me to me again?
There’s nothing left to say and I send these tears a thousand miles away
There’s nothing left to say and I send these tears a thousand miles away
Lost in our hearts we’ll be forever yearnin’
Tears in our eyes apart to fall, just like rain only for you
There’s nothing left to say and I send these tears a thousand miles away
There’s nothing left to say but I send these tears a thousand miles away
A thousand miles

CRASH ‘N’ BURN (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

I considered all the chances that were mine
I believed they’d find solutions just in time
I believed they had more answers than I’d heard
The angels sing a different song
Strangers all around us, trust in me they say
We have got the answers, to save the world today
I considered all the things they said
Paper plans drawn out but never read to save us from our darkest fears
We close our eyes and trust that time will find a way
How we trusted in you? No one knows for sure
Still it’s all but over, sailing on a ship of fools
Crash ‘n’ burn.. to live again, up from the ashes I rise
What was clear, the tragedy took all my chances away
Crash’n’ burn… to live again, up from the ashes I rise only to find it’s a lie
Listening to the radio, it seemed to me prophets selling fast cars and a dream
Send your money to us right away, there’s a seat reserved for you at the holy altar
You can live for free in the name of His name for eternity
Crash ’n’ burn.. to live again, up from the ashes I rise
What was clear, the tragedy took all my chances away
Crash ‘n’ burn.. to live again, up from the ashes I rise only to find it’s a lie
Too many words have been spoken, so many people divine
Too many questions rise from my heart answers I may never find…
before I Crash ’n burn.. to live again, up from the ashes I rise
What was clear, the tragedy took all my chances away
Crash ‘n’ burn.. to live again, up from the ashes I rise, only to find it’s a lie
Crash ‘n’ burn

DANCING (THE IRISH SONG) (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

Gentle pale skin golden red hair, emerald green eyes and a smile so fair
Watch from afar I felt my love grow, why he’s mistreating
God only knows still I’m crossin’ the road for the last time
Soon I’ll see what’s in store around the bend
My soul’s growing tired been so many years
Soon I’ll be back in your arms again
The light’s shining dimly as I walk through the door
I knew that he’d taken you and I’d hold you know more
So I ran down the road and I found him
Struck him down with a vengeance he fell
I stood and I stared as he drew his last breath
No regrets as I watched his eyes close
Now the hangman is calling and the bell tolls for me, if I make it to heaven
We’ll be dancin’ like we were still young she belonged to me
I could only wait till its time to die
Now the hangman is calling and the bell tolls for me
If I make it to heaven We’ll be dancin’ like we were still young
We’ll be dancin’ like we were still young, still young

DOWN IN FLAMES (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

It’s my heart feeling heavy, down about the way that you treat me
Is your love still on fire? Show that your touch has desire
If I give you all you need, would you still be there for me?
I don’t think so… no, no, no
I can’t wait longer, can’t you see that I feel like I’m going
Down in flames… you’re taking control of my heart and I’m going
Down in flames… straight to the ground over you
Must I be so mistreated? Now there’s no more to be forgiven
I can’t play any longer, time that I became just a wanderer
Had you said you’d really cared? Don’t you know that I’d be there?
I don’t think so… no, no, no
I can’t wait longer, can’t you see that I feel like I’m going
Down in flames… you’re taking control of my heart and I’m going
Down in flames… straight to the ground over you
Down in flames… you’re taking my heart and I feel like I’m going
Down in flames… straight to the ground over you
Send back my heart, give me control
Must I be so mistreated? There’s no win or lose
I guess I’m goin’ down in flames… you’re taking control of my heart
and I’m going down in flames… straight to the ground over you
Down in flames… you’re taking my heart and I feel like I’m going
Down in flames… straight to the ground over you
I guess I’m goin’ down in flames

EVERYBODY NEEDS (TO BE WITH SOMEONE) (“Long Way Home”, 2002)

Let me tell my story, listen up, my friend
It shines in the beginning, we all know how it ends
You throw away your life, no rhyme or reason
You act as though its you the one that’s bleedin’
To me it seems so strange, nothing gonna change
I guess everybody needs to be with someone
Mother never told you there’d be days like this
Lost in your reflexion, brings you happiness
No one understands why you go on
Holdin’ on to someone that’s no right for you
To me it seems so strange, nothing gonna change
I guess everybody needs to be with someone
There’s a place in your mind you can run to and laugh out loud
And its safe from the night alone, and it makes you feel
everything’s all right for you
I guess everybody needs to be with someone

FOREVER (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

Searching for answers, I found one
Looking for roses, but the season is gone
I see the eyes of a stranger, I don’t know you anymore
I know my heart is in danger lost in you just like before
Searching for reasons one more time
As we turn back the pages, who said love isn’t blind?
As I reached out for heaven, you were all I could see, as we try to hold on…
Forever… just you and me
it was the word that you said that took you into my heart
It was the tears that we shed
Forever…. Lost in the sea… of my memories
Whispered emotions, passions unbared
In the heat of the moment so many things that we said
You found the end of my sadness, you buried all of my pain
Now love’s turned into madness, echoes are all that remain
It was the word that you said that took you into my heart
It was the tears that we shed, forever… lost in the sea
It was the word that you said that took you into my heart
It was the tears that we shed, forever… Lost in the sea… of my memories
Forever lost just like me
It was the word that you said that took you into my heart
It was the tears that we shed, forever… Lost in the sea…
It was the word that you said that took you into my heart
It was the tears that we shed, forever… Lost in the sea… of my memories
Forever… of my memories. Forever… Forever… Forever…

GIVE IT UP (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

In one man’s mind, we could have anything
in one man’s life, we could lose everything
Look to the sky to what the future would bring to me
’cause when it’s all said and done, who’s gonna put away the gun?
Give it up, stop all you fighting, yeah, yeah
So give it up, it’s my world, don’t fuck it up for me
Just one more chance knocks opportunity
but it won’t wait if we don’t find the key
Listen to me, I’ve had enough of the sorrow and pain
’cause when it’s all said and done, who’s gonna put away the gun?
Give it up, stop all you fighting, yeah, yeah
So give it up, it’s my world
We’re dancing with destruction, dancing with destruction
We’re dancing with destruction
So give it up, give it up, stop all you fighting, yeah, yeah
So give it up, it’s my world, we’re dancing with destruction
Give it up, in one man’s life, we could lose everything
Give it up, stop all you fighting, don’t fuck it up for me, no no
Give it up, give it up, dancing with destruction
So give it up, dancing with destruction

GOODBYE MY FRIEND (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

I tried to say, didn’t want you need you
Tried to believe didn’t love you to
Same old song, we try to hold on
And in the end we try to move on
So goodbye my friend, it was good to get to see you again
If this is the end, please don’t try and make me love you again
Tried to believe had an answer to
Wasn’t just me that believed in you
As I look back I see what you knew…
It’s better for me, and it’s better for you
So goodbye my friend, it was good to get to see you again
If this is the end, please don’t try and make me love you again
I was wrong to carry on, still in the end we try to hold on
So goodbye my friend, it was good to get to see you again

HEART FULL OF SOUL (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

Sick at heart and lonely, deep in dark despair
Thinking one thought only: where is she tell me where?
And if she says to you she don’t love me
Just give her my message, tell her of my plea
And I know, well if she’d have me back again
Well I would never make her sad
I got a heart full of soul
She’s been gone such a long time, longer than I can bare
But if she says she wants me tell her that I’ll be there
And if she says to you she don’t love me
Just give her my message, tell her of my plea
And I know, well if she’d have her back again
Well I would never make her sad
I got a heart full of soul

I’VE FOUND (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

The morning rose, you were always kind
Can’t believe we’ve found each other, waking for the rest of our lives
I believed I’d never find someone to believe in
but there you were
When I least expected it, when I’d almost given up lost my faith in love
but where you are
Tried to hide my feelings still you know
so I guess it’s time I finally let it show
I’ve found someone who believes that love’s a battle that’s been won
Seems a lifetime past by, until I found a reason
Someone to believe in I’ve found
I thought despair was jus part of life
But you showed me differently smiling full of life as you said
There’ll be better days, just like rainwe can’t complain…
It’s ok, there’ll be better days
You and I so different, seems we’re worlds apart
Patience brings us closer we’re not far

LET IT BE TRUE (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

Hard it’s been hard that I know
your tears drift away to the sea
Doesn’t matter where you go, doesn’t matter where you’ve been
doesn’t matter how you feel
I’ll be there like the wind, doesn’t matter where you go
I will follow like the wings of an angel, shelter you
Doesn’t matter when you fall, I will be there
like the wings of an angel, comfort you
So let it be true
Hard its been hard, I can see your eyes, more than words say to me
If I could erase the pain, part the seas
I would give up everything, days to be
Doesn’t matter where you go, I will follow
like the wings of an angel, shelter you
Doesn’t matter when you fall, I’ll always catch you
like the wings of an angel, comfort you
So let it be true, let it go like the summer
fall will take you through the snow
Then spring will caress you, let the heavens bring you home
so let it be true

LITTLE GIRL (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

Mother never told you that’s all right, don’t you cry
Now the visions dance inside your head, such a shame
What’s your name?
What have you done? Done to yourself
In the tapestries with faded clowns all year ’round, bringing you down
Trying to escape in your own ways
What’s your name?
How can you see with your head in the clouds?
What will you do if you just you alone inside little girl?
No where to run, no where to hide except inside little girl
You carry the weight of the world
no one expects you to bear that burden
If you can let it all go, even the daze will seem so much brighter
Every night holds a surprise for you

LIVIN’ A LIE (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

Does it seem that we’re going nowhere again?
Can it be that love has passed us by the way?
Can’t sly that we played the game so well?
Are we to a point where time stands still?
Nothing can save us now
If you only want to believe in fairy tales and dreams
If I’m not what you’re looking for set me free
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve come and gone
It’s sad to think what we have wasted over and over trying to make you see
Feelings are not something you can play with
Maybe once, but never twice, better listen to my advice
If your gonna believe in someone who still cares for you
If your gonna believe in fantasies say we’re through
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve come and gone
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve gone
In my darkness I will find the light
Lone survivor, someone to save me
When I look back I think of all the years wasted on your love…
It’s over now
So if you gonna believe in someone who still cares for you
If your gonna believe in fantasies say we’re through
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve come and gone
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve gone
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve come and gone
Living a lie, now that your love has run
Living a lie, now that you’ve gone, now that you’ve gone

MAGIC ROAD (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

You’ve got it all now it took some time but now you’re here
Your friends are kind now, they say you haven’t changed at all
You’ve got it all now you’ve got no time for me at all
But when it’s gone now I won’t be there to share your tears
I know how you feel been down that magic road before
But it isn’t real what are you lookin’ for

MIRROR MIRROR (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

Look inside my eyes, you can see everywhere I’ve been
You can drag me down, I’ll come right back again
You gotta hold on to every little thing, every little bag of bones
When the love’s gone you shoot from the hip you make or break it on your own
Love takes your heart away and gives it back in pieces
I look at myself and say I know who to believe in’
Mirror, mirror on the wall, I’m still here, I survived it all
Mirror, mirror, tell me more, if that was love then love is war
I am gonna fight until I win
Another place in time, I might have given in
You gotta hold on to every little thing, every little bag of bones
When the love’s gone you shoot from the hip you make or break it on your own
Love takes your heart away and gives it back in pieces
I look at myself and say I know who to believe in’
Mirror, mirror on the wall, seven hills, I survived them all
Mirror, mirror, tell me more, if that was love then love is war
Mirror, mirror on the wall, seven hills, I survived them all
Mirror, mirror, tell me more, if that was love then love is war
Mirror, mirror on the wall, I’m still here, I survived it all
Mirror, mirror, tell me more, if that was love then love is war

ONLY HEAVEN KNOWS (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

Woke up today something is gone
Looked for my heart but it couldn’t be found
Easy to tell this feeling inside
This kinda pain baby you just can hide
Whatever happened to me and you
Was it something I said? What did I do?
When it’s late at night I wonder why
I’m all alone with this feeling inside
Only heaven knows what went wrong
Just when I needed you
Only heaven knows what went wrong
Can’t find the answers when the feeling is gone
Just like an old book some pages are gone
and now our story can never be told
These lonely nights, it’s hard to bear
Heaven knows why do I still care?
Send me an answer, so I can be free
So I can forget how it used to be
Only heaven knows what went wrong
Can’t find the answers when the feeling is gone
Only heaven knows what went wrong
Just when I needed you, just like an old book

STAY (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

Girl, when I think of you, you know it makes me sad
And I wonder, wonder about what we had, what we had
Say we’re over baby that we’re through
Can’t believe it say that it’s not true
Please believe me when I say I do
I’m still missing you, loving you, loving you
Won’t you stay, can’t you see my love is waiting here
Darling, stay, don’t you leave me drowning in my tears
Do ya love me baby let me know
Khow your feelings ’cause I gotta know
Am I wasting my time, am I being a fool for loving you, loving you?
Every night your name is on my lips
I feel your body at my fingertips
Please believe me when I say I do
I’m still missing you, loving you… Am I a fool?
Won’t you stay, can’t you see my love is waiting here
Darling, stay, don’t you leave me drowning in my tears
Won’t you touch me and stay for a while, I need you so badly
Darling… Won’t you stay can’t you see my love is waiting here
Darling, stay, don’t you leave me drowning in my tears
Won’t you stay can’t you see my love is waiting here
Darling, stay, don’t you leave me drowning in my tears
Won’t you stay can’t you see my love is waiting here
Darling, stay, don’t you leave me drowning in my tears

SUNLESS DAYS (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

You move like fire, you dance like flame
resurrecting my senses again
Never thought it would end like this
the same as the start of it all
Would someone stop me? My worlds is spinnin’
all I want is my day black and white
Can’t you see that my heart is bleeding? Give me reasons
We live in sunless days, no horizon through the storm
Your love I sailed upon like a wind to carry us
Starless night from the ashes came
in a daze felt the world was spinning
I never thought it would end like this
the same as the start of it all
All I know is my world is dreaming
all I want is my day black and white
On a sea full of tears I’m riding no horizon…
You are so far away… Getting closer
We live in sunless days, no horizon through the storm
Your love I sailed upon like a wind to carry us
We live in starless nights, upon an ocean full of tours
Searching for the day that you will return
The unicorn was still out there living
‘least in dreams they’ll always exist
Would someone wake up? My world is dreaming
all we want is the day black and white
Would someone wake up? My world is dreaming
all I want is my day black and white
Sunless days… (alternate) We live in sunless days (alternate)
And in the darkest part of night
Your love I sailed upon (alternate) In starless nights (alternate)
You leave me island song
Sunless days… (alternate) There are no words to say (alternate)
How I’m feeling, how I’m feeling, no more feeling
And when the morning comes you’d be holding me so near, hold me so near
Feel upon my knees, curse or miracle as all I see
You gave me islands songs, then left me stranded on your seas

THE HUNGER (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

What’s wrong with you may be right for me
don’t need to feel your sympathy, no
In the dark I feel at home I need the night
to make my feelings known
Alright like lone wolf, can’t you see living in false realities
Do you know just how I feel? Can’t explain it but it’s real
Lost in a world full of fear, it gives me passion
I’m just a lone wolf who’s waiting
wating for life’s attraction to give me
The hunger…burning in my soul, with the hunger…
everybody knows
It’s the hunger to give me what I need, with the hunger…
satisfaction guaranteed
Blackened sky on a full moon rise, destiny, it calls to me
Some call it love, some call it more
I’ll play that game if it gets me through the door
Alright like lone wolf, can’t you see living in false realities
Do you know just how I feel? Can’t explain it but it’s real
Lost in a world full of fear, it gives me passion
I’m just a lone wolf who’s waiting
waiting for life’s attraction to give me
The hunger…burning in my soul, it’s the hunger…
everybody knows
It’s the hunger to give me what I need, with the hunger…
take a walk with me
In the night I call your name, as we stop to play the game
It is it love or fantasy, living false realities
Hunger…burning in my soul, it’s the hunger…
everybody knows
It’s the hunger to give me what I need, it’s the hunger…
satisfaction guaranteed
Hunger…burning in my soul, it’s the hunger…
everybody knows
It’s the hunger to give me what I need, it’s the hunger…
satisfaction guaranteed
It’s the hunger…

THERE WAS A TIME (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

It was late like the storm
finding it hard tried to carry on
Without fear or the shame
we could walk in park not afraid
Was a time I believed, as the story unfolded so free
now the passion is gone
All wrong, down to the lake moonlight dawn
There was a time I believed time would heal everything
Was a time I believed you were everything I need
They say that it’s starting to show
should have seen it long ago
There was a time I believed you were everything I need
As a child we believed, we would wake from the night
and the dawn it seemed
Was so warm, so warm, into his arms I was born
Was a time I believed time would heal everything
Was a time I believed you were everything I need
You took me like the Sage
searching for some absolution
Hard to know the reason nobody cared
once upon a time
Take me right away, let me know there’s still a season
Let me know there’s still a reason to live
I’m running out of time
Taking a chase of Covoisier
all of those words that we shouldn’t have said
Now I’m walking the beach for the last time
missing you more than I should

UNDER THE GUN (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

So long baby bleed
had more than enough time to burn it all
Down to the core, of your bottomless soul
thought you always wanted to be free
I won’t miss you when you’re gone
so hard to believe it went on for so long
But I’ll carry on without you like before
You will have your day in the sun
close your eyes it’s gonna burn
Your day in the sun, will you ever learn?
So long baby blue
waited so long but you never come through
We dried all your tears
thought you were the one I could believe in
I won’t miss you when I’m gone
it’s hard to believe this went on for so long

WHEN LOVE FINDS A FOOL (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

I could’ve told you all these tears
what good to they do
All these years my life’s been living
It’s a shame you’ve not been giving
So tell me what to do, and I’ll be there for you, only for you
When love finds a fool like me, it doesn’t see
When love finds a fool, baby like me
I could’ve been the one
Sad empty faces look to my eyes
they seem to know me
I can take the rejection, all I need is your affection
I should’ve seen it coming, you should’ve said ’goodbye’
I guess you were right
When love finds a fool like me, it doesn’t see
When love finds a fool baby, like me
I could’ve been the one
When love finds a fool like me, it doesn’t see
When love finds a fool, baby like me
I could’ve been the one

WHEN SOME NIGHTS (“Up From the Ashes”, Don Dokken, 1990)

Take me back, to a time I remember well
It’s a fact, when your near you know we could stop the world
If I’m wrong, then alright, you know it doesn’t matter now
in my heart, you are mine
You know we’re gonna make it somehow
You know we’re gonna make it somehow
I can be anything, just for you I can make it right
Fortunes told in love’s hearts
it doesn’t have to keep us apart
I’m a soldier of fortune fighting for a means to an end
If there’s love in you eyes, it’s only gonna take one night
Yeah, say it’s not over and remember
When some night you are lonely, you just call out my name
I will make you mine only, make you mine only again
On the wings of a tear, you know we could ride the storm
Like desire, I was born to give you everything and more
If you’re a soldier of fortune fighting for a means to an end
If there’s love in your eyes it’s plainer than the world we share
Yeah, say it’s not over and remember
When some nights you are lonely, you just call out my name
And I’ll be there beside you, and I’ll make you mine only
When some night you are lonely, you just call out my name
I will make you mine only, make you mine only again
Hold on to what you have and not what you think is yours
Too many people stand there blinded by the Light, they don’t see
Take me back to a time I remember well
It’s a fact, when you’re near, you know we could stop the world
When some nights you are lonely, you just call out my name
And I’ll be there beside you, and I’ll make you mine only
When some night you are lonely, you just call out my name
I will make you mine only, make you mine only again

YOU (“Long Way Home”, Dokken, 2002)

Life as dreams, streets of gold
You used to go there, now you’re draining down the bottle
System’s failing, siren’s wailing, no hidden secrets
now you’re headed for the farm child
It’s time you’re leaving, take a break down to the shore
You used to love it where the holy waters flowed
Maybe you’ll find your long lost message in a bottle
you sent long ago, to yourself long ago
What are you looking for? The line is long, you’re too far out
No hidden meanings here, do I have to spell it out
Sleep in late, waste the day missin’ such a good time
now you’ve gone and thrown it all away
They found your message on the other side of life
but they don’t want you over
They don’t wanna cry
Seems that you’ve gone so far caught up in yourself
better find your way out, it’s not all about “YOU”
Into the light of the sun now you’re gone
send me a word out of faith
You’ll be home – far away
You make believe before you go to sleep
that life is going your way
The things you need are superficial indeed
and leading you astray – far away
It’s time you’re leaving take a break down to the shore
You used to love it when the holy waters flow
Maybe you’ll find your long lost message in a bottle
Sent long ago, to yourself long ago
Is it just all about “YOU”?
