Scumbag My immediate reaction to the banner on Crystal's page was "these guys look like Loverboy"... While they don't sound as much like Loverboy as they looked, they can fit squarely into the same category of '80s AOR rock/hard rock. Melodies galore, catchy choruses with harmony backing vox, heaps of keys underlying the guitar-driven sound, actual guitar solos! Mint! Favorite track: I'm a Dreamer.

Track Name: In the Night
Endless nights and lonely days
I just can't get away
I'm trying to deceive myself of what I really see
But the hardest part is in the night
I don't want to be alone
'Cause up upon the hill I see the harsh reality

CHORUS

In the night
You can hear the screams of a thousand dreams
In the night
You can hear the sound of a broken heart

Nothing is quite what it seems
You're hoping it's all a dream
Looking for the answers that you will never see
The voices you hear inside your head are the cries of a thousand years
All those lonely lonely people and all their lonely tears

CHORUS

Track Name: I'm a Dreamer
I'm a Dreamer
I never wanted to cry
I didn't see in your eyes the love we had wasn't there no more
You said you want to be free
It wasn't easy to see
And that was not what I'm hoping for
You needed something that I could never give you
And my love was the kind you could do without
I never said I was right but when I held you at night
You were the one there could be no doubt

CHORUS

And I'm holding on
I'm a dreamer
To a love that somewhere lost within my soul
And I'm holding on
I'm a dreamer
And I know that I will never let you go

I know you're looking around
I know you're out on the town
You'll never find what you're looking for
For you my feelings won't change
My love you won't rearrange
Although I'm hurt I'll come back for more
With me you won't have to lie
Tell it to some other guy
That way I'll have to believe in you
I guess I'll swallow my pride stay along for the ride
'Till you decide what you want to do

CHORUS

Track Name: Time Keeps Runnin'
Time Keeps Runnin'
Time keeps runnin'
Runnin' away
Already it's tomorrow but I'm still in yesterday
And I don't know what to do about the way I feel
It's winding me up driving me crazy
Got me spinning like a wheel

It'd take a half a dozen lifetimes to do what's inside of me
But I'm just running circles
I can't seem to break free

CHORUS

Time keeps runnin'
Runnin' away from me
Time keeps runnin'
Runnin' away from me

Well I've got no time to sleep
No time to rest
The demons inside me are driving me crazy
Got me trying to be the best
But I can't slow down
Momentum keeps pushing me faster
The past the present and the future are one
Feels like I'm on a roller coaster

Sometimes it feels like madness but I just carry on
I've got no time for sadness until this race is won

CHORUS

Track Name: Always Be There
Always Be There
I never thought there was someone like you
You were just part of a dream
Pictures that constantly haunted my view of someone that I'd never seen
Then when I saw you the sparks seemed to fly
My vision had finally come true
My one obsession I couldn't deny
I couldn't believe it was you

CHORUS

You're everything that a man could hope for
Your love is something so rare
You're everything that a man could hope for
Tell me you'll always be there
Always be there
Always be there
Always be there
Tell me you'll always be there

Worry and heartache were part of my life
Emotions I couldn't forget
Battling the memories the pain and the strife until the first time that we met
Then you came along and you brought me a smile
The power you have over me
You promised to stay and love me for a while
And now I can finally see

CHORUS

Track Name: Right Before My Eyes
Right Before My Eyes
When I look into your eyes I see what I have never seen before
And when I touch your skin so soft the pounding of my heart I can't control
I've dreamt of you so many time but only to awake
To find myself alone again a prisoner of my fate
But now that I am with you I just can't believe it's true
The answer to my only prayer was right before my eyes
I love you

You have found the child in me that I had lost so many years ago
You've given me the strength to love
You set my spirit free and gave me hope
You've taken me so many places I have never seen
A journey of a loving heart
The woman of my dreams
And now that you are part of me I know your love is true
The answer to my only prayer was right before my eyes
I love you

You're everything I ever wanted
Everything I need to take away my loneliness
To make my life complete

And now if you will take my hand I'll spend my life with you
The answer to my only prayer was right before my eyes
I love you

Track Name: One Life
One Life
One life, one chance
One life, one dream

All around me people saying how can you be this way
Do you feel your part is somehow better than the play
Don't you think that you should be hurting
Don't you feel the pain
What use is it to try an struggle
What is left to gain

Don't you know
You don't have to feel this loneliness emptiness
Make a space where you belong
There's no right or wrong
Don't you know

CHORUS

One life, one chance
I'm not a willing victim of my circumstances
One life, one dream
Don't be sitting in judgment
I'm not what I seem to be
I'm not what I seem

All around me people saying how empty that they feel
Weighed down by their frustrations
Forgetting what is real
The skill of happiness eludes them like a specter in the night
No way I can convince them
Against themselves they fight

But I won't, no I won't
Let them run me 'round drag me down
Make a space where I belong
There's no right or wrong
Don't you know

CHORUS

Track Name: The One For You
The One For You
I just want you know the way you make me feel
And I just need you to care for a heart that's finally healed
I don't ever want you to see a weaker side of me
And I always want to be near the one who set me free

CHORUS

All I want is to be the one for you
Hold me in your arms and make it all come true
Help me through the night like no one else can do
All I want is to be the one for you

You're a gift from above
You're the one who makes me smile
It's only you in my eyes and I've been looking for a while
You're the fantasy I dream of every night
This is the only time I felt this way so I know it must be right

CHORUS

Don't be scared
Don't be shy
Just remember that I'm always there for you

I believe in fairy tales and I know this one is true
The only time I feel this way is when I am next to you

CHORUS
