Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Cities walk on fire
Look at me I 've got no face
Talk to me I've got no name
It's not my fault you came after me
No it's not my fault you came after me
When the sun goes down the cities will walk on fire

Inside myself there is nothing alive
My happy memories they now make me cry
It's not my fault you came after me
No it's not my fault you came after me
When the sun goes down the cities will walk on fire

I used to create now I only destroy
I hate everything that I used to enjoy
It's not my fault you came after me
No it's not my fault you came after me
When the sun goes down the cities will walk on fire
When the sun goes down the cities will walk on fire
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - The river and the town
In a moment of love I saw terror and horror
Declarations of truth just behind my back
Brotherhood of man equality in slavery
Got to lose myself not to be accused

But I don't live by the river
I live in town in a town of war




Both the river and the town in the middle of a war

In a moment of love I saw terror and horror
Declarations of truth just behind my back
Brotherhood of man equality in slavery
Got to lose myself not to be accused

But I don't live by the river
I live in town in a town of war




This is a song and a photograph
This is an ode to the lonely men
The last cigarette at the last hour of the day
This is an ode to the brave

Both the river and the town in the middle of a war

In a period of peace I saw thousands of soldiers
And a million of guns loaded just in case
Safety for all dignity is forgotten
Got to be creative not to be absorbed

But I don't live by the river
I live in town in a town of war
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Story of my life
She's a car that goes too fast
Even faster than the moments of my past
She's the heaven that I miss
She's a drug I can't resist

She's a game I cannot win
In the end I'll sure give in
She's a song that I can't write
She's a place where I can't hide

She's a chair where I can't sit
She's a bed where I can't sleep
She's a food that I can't eat
She's a beer that I can't drink

She's a pen that doesn't write
She's too strong but she won't fight
She's the sun without the light
She's the moon without the night

She's a wall without a pass
She's a bank without some cash
She's a man without a wife
She's the story of my life
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Burning desire
Babe you know... when I watch you at the edge of the bed and you wash your long blonde hair ... I got a strange desire makes me feel exactly like this...

Babe you make me feel that burning desire
Burning desire burnigg just burning
Just looking in your eyes is getting me higher
Getting me higher ,getting me getting me yeah!

Take your time to spend your days and then I'll surely follow
Don't you worry babe you know the moon will always shine bright on us

The chords from your body our playing with my melodies
Playing with my melodies, playing and playing
No fear and danger I let myself on you let myself on you
Let me just let me on you

Take your time to spend your days and then I'll surely follow
Don't you worry babe you know the moon will always shine bright on us
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Walking
Keep thinking on the fate of man
But it doesn't make sense to me
I don't want no chains in my life
Cause all these chains won't leave me be

I've been walking all night
And I've been walking all day
And I don't care if I don't find my way
Cause walking is all I wanna do

I wonder what I'm looking for
But then the answer comes along
I began from nothing and now I'm looking for more
Until I find it all

I've been walking all night
And I've been walking all day
And I don't care if I don't find my way
Cause walking is all I wanna do

I've been walking all night
And I've been walking all day
And I don't care if I don't find my way
Cause walking is all I wanna do
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Actress
All the books are paintings whose painters are blind
When you read you see the colors when you think it's always black
And the poems and the songs are the weapons of the young
When you listen they praise win when you think they shed your blood

And you're an actress that's a fact
You're an actress with no act

Well your smile is a flower from the garden of a church
When you smell it lifts your spirit when you think it burns your flesh
And your kiss is a room with a window and a door
When you get in they're wide open when you leave there are no more

And you're an actress that's a fact
You're an actress with no act

And the wine is a bird that will settle in our head
And our head is a gun that will shoot the poor bird dead
And the dead are the photos that will hang upon the wall
And the wall is the movie in the memory of all

And you're an actress that's a fact
You're an actress with no act
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Devil's road
Well I won't show you my face cause you're so afraid to see me
You would rather have my body cut off from my very head
And I won't tell you my name cause you can't stand even listen
You would wish to have forgotten all the stories I'm involved

And the saints all step back and kneel
Devil's road

There was a woman I called mother and she used to call me son
Now she's sleeping with the father underground where they belong
There's a guy and people love him many times they call him god
He's my enemy and friend and the fight starts once again

And the saints all step back and kneel
Devil's road

Oh human please release me from the good and evil



And the saints all step back and kneel
Devil's road
And the saints all step back and kneel
Devil's road
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Burn your bridges
Take me back or forward
I wanna see you smile
Take me back or forward
I want you to meet time

In a place that's always darkness ...in a place full of fears

Let me saw you a passage
Let me whisper in your ear
Nothing left till the end
Common sister hold my hand

In a place that's always darkness ...in a place full of fears

Ain't no lonely roads only open highway
Now that we are more than two
We' re gonna make it our way
Years in shadows we' re been waiting
The sun is rising
Burn your bridges free your soul
There's nothing more surprising

Sometimes I feel i'm going crazy
Sometimes I feel i get mean
Sometimes my mind gets hazy something brakes and gets over me.

In a place that's always darkness in a place just full of fears.
Track Name: Mr Highway Band - Shiny summer
Looking at the days of shiny summer, singing in the sun
looking back ago
looking all these days , with brothers dancing rebels just for fun
looking back ago

Yeah........was only years ago
Yeah........was only rock n roll

Pack your things and bag and get your self straight and come with us
Come ,and don't let go
sun is rising high and you are the one who tried with all his heart
not to waste another dawning

Yeah........we re ready to go long
Yeah........we are only rock n roll

And when you' re looking for a place to rest
And when you feel the need to run... on the run ,on the run
We will be always on the run

Yeah........was only years ago
Yeah........was only rock n roll
