Track Name: The Devil's Guitar
Instrumental
Track Name: The Girl In The Car
Let’s pack our bags up and leave this town
Never to return
Let’s say goodbye to one and all
Auf weidersehen, Auf weidersehen

There lies another story
There’s another life
The girl in the car says she wants to go far
And who am I to say

Let’s hit the road and we’ll head down south to Ronda, tonight
Where the matador stalks his prey
In the most extraordinary way

There lies another story
There’s another life
The girl in the car says she wants to go far
And who am I to say

(smoking on the beach)

There lies another story
There’s another life
The girl in the car says she wants to go far
And who am I to say
Track Name: Famesville
The night has a million eyes
Yet none of them see me
There is nothing and there’s no one
Who’ll ever take away my dream

The streets have a thousand lights
Yet I’m standing in the shadows
There is nothing and there’s no one
Who’ll ever take my dreams away

The girl has a hundred lies
Yet I believe them all
There is nothing and there’s no one
Who’ll ever take my soul away

Heaven sent me an Angel
She purifies my soul

The night still has million eyes
Just one of them can see me
There is nothing and there’s no one
Will ever take the girl away
Track Name: Lunar Girl
Sitting at the table looking right across the room
The space-age girl is smiling and I hear a distant tune
The orchestra is playing, sweetly, “Music from the Moon”
I raise my glass and toast her, as I’d like to meet her soon

Save me, wont you save me, wont you stay with me tonight

The rhythm of the bongo drums attracts her to the floor
She moves and grooves her body like I’ve never seen before
The orchestra’s still playing sweetly “Music from the Moon”
I raise my glass and toast you, as I’d like to meet you soon

Save me, wont you save me, wont you stay with me tonight

I walk on to the dance floor and I take her by the hand
I whisper softly in her ear “Baby I’m your man”
The lunar girl is smiling as she gently drifts away
Her finger calls me over saying honey wont you stay

Save me, wont you save me, wont you stay with me tonight
Track Name: The Lonely One
When the night descends and shadows disappear
I long for all the things I get when you are near
The lonely one is missing you, the lonely is me
Only the lonely have nothing left to fear

And when the morning comes, I call you on the phone
Your voice is music to my ears
The lonely one is missing you, the lonely is me
Only the lonely have nothing left to fear

When I see your face, I’m dancing on rain
When I see your eyes, I’m shooting at stars…tonight
The lonely one is missing you, the lonely is me
Only the lonely have nothing left to fear
Track Name: Fallen Angel
Under-world
Look at little Johnny, took a bullet in the head
He ruled the streets with iron choices, baby now he’s dead
Building up an empire full of terror and deceit
Who is taking over? Who will find their feet?
I am nervous Oooh, I’m so nervous Ooww!

Over-world
But in MY eyes, you’re a fallen angel
Take my hand and we can fly

Hey I’ve got your number and the writings on the wall
It’s the same old story how the mighty fall
I’m gonna smash your empire full of terror and of deceit
Who is taking over and who will find their feet
I am nervous Oooh, I’m so nervous Whaaa!


But in MY eyes, you’re a fallen angel
Take my hand and we can fly

Look at little Johnny, took a bullet in the head
He ruled the streets with iron choices, baby now he’s dead
Building up an empire full of terror and of deceit

But in MY eyes, you’re a fallen angel
Take my hand and we can fly
Track Name: In A Special Way
Turn away from the window and into the light
I’ll be home tonight
Take a look in the mirror, tell me, what do you see
Half of you and half of me
No, you’re not crazy!

I want you, I need you, in a special way x2

Telephone: You’re everything to me, never doubt my love
I will be home…tonight

I want you, I need you, in a special way x2
Track Name: Fireworks Over Ronda
Instrumental
Track Name: Jack Of Hearts
It’s late in the city
And I’m on the wrong side of town
And I’m looking for a good time
The neon sign, it flashes JACK OF HEARTS
It flashes Jack of hearts
She says “Wont you come on in, if your looking for a good time”
I said “I’m looking for love”
I’m looking for a good time
I’m looking for love
I’m looking for a good time
I’m looking for a good time
Track Name: Lunar Girl (Reprise)
Instrumental
