Track Name: Dolled Up (rock mix)
"Dolled Up"
Written by: The Miskreants

She is my girl and she's looking just right
She is my girl and I want her tonight
It's the way that she moves, It's that look in her eyes
Her short red dress and her silky smooth thighs
woah oh oh
Like a killer
In the moonlight
So damn foxy
She'll go all night
She is all Dolled Up
She is all Dolled Up tonight

Shut the door baby and turn out the light
Shut the door baby and make me alright
Come with me girl, close your eyes mine are too
Come with me girl let my love push on through
woah oh oh
Like a killer
In the moonlight
So damn foxy
She'll go all night
She is all Dolled Up
She is all Dolled Up tonight
Track Name: Ride The Sky
"Ride The Sky"
Written by: The Miskreants

Life ain't always steady as it seems
There's ups and downs, and in-betweens
The trick is to find somethin' to keep livin' for
Sometimes that's easier said then done
I promise you, you're not the only one
To battle everyday while they keep taking more and more
So when it feels like it's you against the world
Stand tall and hold your head up high

If you wanna Ride The Sky
And want somethin' more
That's worth livin' for
Fight to stay alive
Stay strong to survive
This world makes you pay
So find your own way
And run 'til you fly
If you wanna Ride The Sky

Well some will say how to live your life
Chances are that they're not right
Follow your heart, your life and dreams belong to only you
And if you want to make a change
It's not enough to stay the same
Believing can make your dreams come true

And when the time has come to rise above it all
Just learn to spread your wings and fly

If you wanna Ride The Sky
And want somethin' more
That's worth livin' for
Fight to stay alive
Stay strong to survive
This world makes you pay
So find your own way
And run 'til you fly
If you wanna Ride The Sky...
Then keep holdin' on
Keep holdin' on
To what your dreams are and..
Ride The Sky
Ride The Sky
Ride The Sky

Woah oh oh oh oh

If you wanna Ride The Sky
And want somethin' more
That's worth livin' for
Fight to stay alive
Stay strong to survive
This world makes you pay
So find your own way
And run 'til you fly
If you wanna Ride The Sky

Just learn to spread your wings and fly...
Track Name: Upside Down
"Upside Down"
Written by: The Miskreants

It's just the little things you say to me when you whisper in my ear
Just the little things you say
And it's just the little things you do to me when you tell me to come here
Just the little things you do
And it's true
I want you
I want you to run away with me
To a place where no one else around can see
And then around and around and Upside Down we'll go
Yeah around and around and Upside Down we'll go
Woah oh oh oh...

And if they come and try to find us babe then we'll slip and slide away
We'll be on the run again
'Cause there's no way we'll let 'em catch us babe
And I mean it when I say
It's you and me until the end
'Til the end
I want you to run away with me
To a place where no one else around can see
And then around and around and Upside Down we'll go
Yeah around and around and Upside Down we'll go
Which way is up
Which way is down
In and out and honey all around with you
'Cause you turn me on with those things you do
Nothin' we won't try....
Around and around and Upside Down we'll go
Yeah around and around and Upside Down we'll go
I want you
I want you
I want you to run away with me
I want you
I want you
I want you...
Track Name: Count It Down
"Count It Down"
Written by: The Miskreants

Well I woke up
Late this morning
I don't know if I'm coming or going
A dirty subway
A busy freeway
I just wish that something would go my way
I can't keep dealing
My mind is reeling
What I really need is a vacation
The time is right I know
Tonight's the night and so
It's on yeah come on baby let's go!

Woah oh oh oh Count It Down
Yeah shout it out
Woah oh oh oh Count It Down
Yeah shout it out
Turnin' up the sound, everybody's around
We're gonna tear this place apart
Woah oh oh oh Count It Down
Yeah shout it out tonight

Feelin' outta place
It's a rat race
So I just keep trying to set my own pace
'Cause I don't want it
And I don't need it
And in fact I really don't give a shit
There's something wrong here
Let's get our minds clear
We're gonna Count It Down like it's the new year!
The time is right I know
Tonight's the night and so
It's on yeah come on baby let's go!

Woah oh oh oh Count It Down
Yeah shout it out
Woah oh oh oh Count It Down
Yeah shout it out
Turnin' up the sound, everybody's around
We're gonna tear this place apart
Woah oh oh oh Count It Down
Yeah shout it out tonight...

Track Name: The Timing
"The Timing"
Written by: The Miskreants

If I met you girl
At another time
In a different place
Would I call you mine?
Would you let your walls come down
And embrace what we have found
Or would it still be all a game
Would it still hurt just the same?
If we could start again...

And if we could start
All over again
Would we fall in love
Or still just friends?
Yeah I wonder if we'd feel
As if time were standing still
Or would the moment come to pass us by
Like it did somehow before our eyes?
If we could start again...

You said The Timing wasn't right
But I still tried to hold on tight
To something I believed in
But now it's clear to me
Maybe The Timing played a part
I feel this within my heart
That baby we just weren't
We weren't meant to be

And so...

You said The Timing wasn't right
But I still tried to hold on tight
To something I believed in
But now it's clear to me
Maybe The Timing played a part
I feel this within my heart
That baby we just weren't
We weren't meant to be...
Track Name: A Year's Time
"A Year's Time"
Written by: The Miskreants

In A Year's Time
Well the seasons keep changing
As the Earth revolves around the Sun once again
And in A Year's Time memories keep fading
As the lines near our eyes get clearer
In A Year's Time
It's coming around again
A Year's Time
Watch it my friend

'Cause in A Year's Time things keep changin' each day
But is the world getting better or crumbling away
A Year's Time

And in A Year's Time
Will you find all the answers
Or will your life stay relatively the same
And in A Year's time will an angel fly your way
Or will you be cheated by the devil
In A Year's Time
It's comin' around again
A Year's Time
Watch it my friend

'Cause in A Year's Time things keep changin' each day
But is the world getting better or crumbling away
A Year's Time

Woah oh aaahhhh

In A Year's Time things keep changin' each day
But is the world getting better or crumbling away
A Year's Time
Step by step we keep walking the line
A Year's Time
Where will we be?
In A Year's Time
In A Year's Time
In A Year's Time

A Year's Time comes and goes
In the blink of an eye
And we look back and wonder why
A Year's Time comes and goes
Like a storm in the night
Washing away the sins of yesterday
Passing us by again along the way
Until we learn to sieze the day
When will we learn to seize the day

A Year's Time...
