“I Remember You”

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
The wind would whisper and I’d think of you
And all the tears you cried – they called my name
And when you needed me I came through

Paint a picture of the days gone by
When love went blind and you would make me see
I’d stare a lifetime into your eyes
So that I knew that you were there for me
Time after time you were there for me

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you
And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember you.”

We spent the summer with the top rolled down
Wished ever after would be like this
You said I love you babe, without a sound
I said I’d give my life for just one kiss
I’d live for your smile and die for your kiss

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you
And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember you.”

We’ve had our share of hard times
But that’s the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you’ll never be lonely

Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
‘Cause you’ll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you
Through the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember you.”

Remember yesterday – walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sands – I remember you.
Through all the sleepless nights, through every endless day
I wanna hear you say, “I remember, I remember you!

“Little Wing”

Well she’s walking
Trough the clouds
With a circus mind
That’s running wild
Butterflies and zebras and moonbeams and
fairytales
That’s all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind

Oh, when I’m sad
She comes to me
With a thousand smiles
She gives to me free

It’s alright she said
It’s alright
Take anything you want from me
Anything..

“Wasted Time”

You and I together in our lives
Sacred ties would never fray
Then why can’t I let myself tell lies
And watch you die every day

I think back to the times
When dreams were what mattered
Tough talking youth naivete

You said you never let me down
But the horse stampedes and rages
In the name of desperation

Is it all just wasted time
Can you look at yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Is it all just wasted time
Can you live with yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Paranoid delusions they haunt you
Where’s my friend I used to know
He’s all alone
He’s buried deep within a carcass
Searching for a soul

Can you feel me inside your heart
As it’s bleeding
Why can’t you believe you
Can be loved

I hear you scream in agony
And the horse stampedes and rages
In the name of desperation

Is it all just wasted time
Can you look at yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Is it all just wasted time
Can you live with yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

You said you never let me down
But the horse stampedes and rages
In the name of desperation

Is it all just wasted time
Can you look at yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

Is it all just wasted time
Can you live with yourself
When you think of what
You left behind

The sun will rise again
The earth will turn to sand
Creation’s colors seem to fade to grey
And you’ll see the sickly hands of time
Will write your final rhyme
And end a memory

I never thought you’d let it get
This far, boy

“18 And Life”

Ricky was a young boy, he had a heart of stone
Lived nine to five and worked his fingers to the bone
Just barely out of school, came from the edge of town
Fought like a switchblade so no one could take him down
He had no money, no no good at home
Walked the streets a soldier and he fought the world alone
And now it’s

Eighteen and life you got it
Eighteen and life you know
Your crime is time and it’s
Eighteen and life to go

Eighteen and life you got it
Eighteen and life you know
Your crime is time and it’s
Eighteen and life to go

Tequila in his heartbeat, his veins burned gasoline
It kept his motor running but it never kept him clean
They say he loved adventure, “Ricky’s the wild one”
He married trouble and had a courtship with a gun
Bang Bang shoot ’em up, the party never ends
You can’t think of dying when the bottle’s your best friend
And now it’s

Eighteen and life you got it
Eighteen and life you know
Your crime is time and it’s
Eighteen and life to go

Eighteen and life you got it
Eighteen and life you know
Your crime is time and it’s
Eighteen and life to go

“Accidents will happen” they all heard Ricky say
He fired his six-shot to the wind – that child blew a child away

Eighteen and life you got it
Eighteen and life you know
Your crime is time and it’s
Eighteen and life to go

Eighteen and life you got it
Eighteen and life you know
Your crime is time and it’s
Eighteen and life to go

“Youth Gone Wild”

Since I was born they couldn’t hold me down
Another misfit kid, another burned-out town

Never played by the rules I never really cared
My nasty reputation takes me everywhere

I look and see it’s not only me
So many others have stood where I stand
We are the young so raise your hands

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won’t fall
We’re the one and one for all
The writing’s on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

Boss screamin’ in my ear about who I’m supposed to be
Getcha a 3-piece Wall Street smile and son you’ll look just like me

I said “Hey man, there’s something that you oughta know.
I tell ya Park Avenue leads to Skid Row.”

I look and see it’s not only me
We’re standin’ tall ain’t never a doubt
We are the young, so shout it out

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won’t fall
We’re the one and one for all
The writing’s on the wall
We are the youth gone wild

They call us problem child
We spend our lives on trial
We walk an endless mile
We are the youth gone wild
We stand and we won’t fall
We’re the one and one for all
The writing’s on the wall
We are the youth gone wild
We are the youth gone wild

“Monkey Business”

Outside my window there’s a
Whole lot of trouble comin’
The cartoon killers and the
Rag cover clones
Stack heels kickin’ rhythm
Of social circumcision
Can’t close the closet on
Shoe box full of bones

Kangaroo lady with her bourbon
in a pouch
Can’t afford the rental on
a bamboo couch
Collecting back her favors ’cause her
well is running dry
I know her act is terminal,
But she ain’t gonna die

Slim intoxicado drinkin’ dime
store hooch
Is always in a circle with his
part-time pooch
Little creepy’s playing dollies in the
New York rain
Thinkin’ Bowie’s just a knife
Ooh the pain

I ain’t seen the sun since I don’t
know when
The freaks come out at nine
And it’s twenty to ten
What’s this funk
That you call junk
To me it’s just monkey business

Blind man in the vox that will
probably die
The village kids laugh as they walk by
A psycho is on the edge of this human
garbage dump
And the vultures in the sewers
are telling
Him to jump

Into the fire from the frying pan
Tripping on his tounge
For a cool place to stand
Where’s this shade
That you’ve got it made
To me it’s just monkey business

Monkey business
Slippin’ on the track
Monkey business
Jungle in black
Ain’t your business if I got
No monkey on my back

Monkey business
Slippin’ on the track
Monkey business
Jungle in black
Ain’t your business
If I got
Monkey’s on my back

The vaseline gypsies and silicone souls
Dressed to the society
Hypocrite heartbeat and cheap alibis
Can’t get you by that monkey

“Slave To The Grind”

You got me forced to crack
my lids in two
I’m still stuck inside this rubber room
I gotta punch the clock that
leads the blind
I’m just another gear in the assembly
line – oh no

The noose gets tighter around
my throat
But I ain’t at the end of my rope ’cause
I won’t be the one left behind
Can’t be king of the world
If you’re slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can’t be king of the world
If you’re slave to the grind

Get it?

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ain’t even close
There’s no need to waste
your prayers on me
You better mark my words
’cause I’m history
Yes indeed

You might beg for mercy to get by
But I’d rather tear this thorn
from my side

I won’t be the one left behind
You can’t be king of the world
If you’re slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can’t be king of the world
If you’re slave to the grind

They swallowed thier daggers by
turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart
brick by brick
I’m sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

They swallowed thier daggers by
turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart
brick by brick
I’m sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

I won’t be the one left behind

You can’t be king of the world
If you’re slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
You can’t be king of the world
If you’re slave to the grind

I said slave to the grind
Slave to the grind
Slave to the grind

“Quicksand Jesus”

She caught the melting sky
It burned but still the winter passes
By and by
To the other side

A slow parade of wind
That blows through trees
That wilted with the season’s children
Are we saved by the words
Of bastard saints
Do we live in fear or faith
Tell me now who’s behind the rain

A maze of tangled grace
The symptoms of ?for real? are
Crumbling from embrace
But still we chase..the shadows
Of belief
And new religion clouds our visions of
The roots of our souls

Are we ashamed of our own fate
Or play the fool for our own sake
Tell me who’s behind the rain

What do we need where do we go
When we get where we don’t know
Why should we doubt the virgin white
of fallen snow
When faith’s our shelter from the cold

Quicksand Jesus I’m so far away
Without you
Quicksand Jesus I’m so far away
Without you
Quicksand Jesus I’m so far away
Without you

Quicksand Jesus I need you
Quicksand Jesus I believe you
Quicksand Jesus I’m so far away

“Piece Of Me”

Sleazin’ in the city
Lookin’ for a fight
Got my heels and lookin’ pretty
On a Saturday night, night, night

Good God, bless my soul
I need a fix of rock ‘n roll
Come on baby you gotta wait and see
You better hurry
To get a piece of me

Caught a lonely lady
Crying on a cigarette
I got nasty, nasty habits
And that’s all she’s gonna get

One for the money, two for the show
So ’round and ’round and ’round we go
Take a look at what-a you might need
You better hurry
To get a piece of me

I don’t have looks, I don’t have money
But I know one thing’s for sure
One night ain’t enough of my love
She wanted more, more, more

Sleazin’ in the city
Lookin’ for a fight
Got my heels and lookin’ pretty
On a Saturday night, night, night

One for the money, two for the show
So ’round and ’round and ’round we go
Take a look at what-a you might need
You better hurry
To get a piece of me
To get a piece of me
To get a piece of me

Skid Row adalah band heavy metal Amerika, dibentuk pada 1986 di Toms River, New Jersey. Kelompok ini mencapai kesuksesan komersial di akhir 1980-an dan awal 1990-an, dengan dua album pertama Skid Row (1989) dan Slave to the Grind (1991) bersertifikat multi-platinum, yang terakhir mencapai nomor satu di Billboard 200. Band ini Album ketiga Subhuman Race (1995) juga diakui secara kritis, tetapi gagal mengulang kesuksesan para pendahulunya. Selama periode ini, band ini terdiri dari bassis Rachel Bolan, gitaris Dave Sabo dan Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Affuso, dan frontman Sebastian Bach. Band ini telah menjual 20 juta album di seluruh dunia pada akhir tahun 1996.

Setelah mengganti Bach dengan Johnny Solinger dan Affuso dengan Phil Varone pada tahun 1999, Skid Row merilis Thickskin (2003) dan Revolutions per Minute (2006), keduanya mengumpulkan penerimaan campuran hingga negatif. Pada bulan April 2015, Skid Row mengumumkan bahwa mereka telah berpisah dengan Solinger, dan menggantikannya dengan mantan penyanyi TNT Tony Harnell. Delapan bulan kemudian, bagaimanapun, Harnell meninggalkan band. Pada tahun 2017, mantan vokalis Dragonforce, ZP Theart dinobatkan sebagai vokalis resmi setelah menghabiskan satu tahun sebagai anggota tur grup.
