Lyrics:
Hmmm
What planet is this, hmm?
Let there be rock and roll

Hey, yeah
Well, well
Alright
It's a Saturday night and I'm home alone
With the music on quiet, I'm flying solo
Then my feet start moving to the sound of the beat
Put the music up loud, hear it in the street
Then the neighbours start banging on my front door
Throw the door wide open saying what's your point
Come on in, let's rock this joint

We got the whole house rocking
We got the whole house rocking
We got the whole house rocking
We got the whole house rocking
We got the whole house rocking
To the mighty power of rock 'n' roll

We dance out of the door, dance into the street
And all the people are swaying to the musical beat
We rock down the road and down to the town
And the people stare and smile and ow, they get down
Then the policeman says stop this noise
But the beat takes over now he's one of the boys
The beat's taken over now he's one of the boys
Come on down let's rock this town

We got the whole town rocking, yeah, yeah
We got the whole town rocking, yeah, yeah
We got the whole town rocking, yeah, yeah
We got the whole town rocking
We got the whole town rocking
To the mighty power of rock 'n' roll, hey

Let's go
Let it roll
Are you ready?
Said are you ready?
The cosmos rocks

Across the seven seas through the Panama
Now they're rocking on beaches and they're rocking in bars
Don't ask me how and don't ask me why
From Miami Beach down to old Bondi
There's a rock 'n' roll fever in every place
Next thing you know they'll be rocking out in space
Come on down let's rock this place
Come on down and
Sock it to me

We got the whole world rocking
We got the whole world rocking
We got the whole world rocking, hey, yeah
We got the whole world rocking
(Oooh, oooh) we got the whole world rocking
To the mighty, mighty, mighty power

We got the cosmos rocking, what have we got
We got the cosmos rocking, oh yeah
We got the universe rocking, what have we got
We got the cosmos rocking, oh yeah
We got the cosmos rocking
To the mighty power of rock 'n' roll

Time To Shine


Track 2. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 4:23.
Lyrics:
Hmm, ahh
Ahh, ahh

With the sun in your eyes and the wind in your face
To heaven you rise in a holy embrace
Your feet on the ground, your head in the clouds
And you're wondering if you're ever coming down

In an instant the mysteries of life will unfold
The myths and the dragons of time will explode
Here's to a real understanding of truth
For compassion and grace to be given their chance too

Raise up your mind
It's time to shine

A moment down through millennium
Unveiling the secrets of songs to be sung
Waters of life flowing soft to the touch
Wisdom remembered have we forgotten oh so much

Raise up your mind
It's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Hey-ay, it's time to shine

Ohh, oh
Hmm, hmm

Let's awaken from barbarity
Into a world of serenity
Beyond the rage of foolish pride
And on to the golden shores of paradise

Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Hey-ay, it's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Your time to shine

It's time to shine
Hmm, it's time to shine

Still Burnin'


Track 3. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 4:03.
This track includes a short instrumental excerpt of 'We Will Rock You', lasting approximately 12 seconds.

Lyrics:
Oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I can't wake in the mornin'
I can't sleep at night
I got a pain in my memory
That just won't sit right
You might say I'm losin' my mind
What a shame, shame, shame
But I don't want, and I don't need
To play the cryin' game

Music lights this flame in me
I won't let it go and it won't let me be
I'm just a happy slave and I, oh I can't leave it
'Cos I'm still, and I always will, be a believer

Still burnin' - yeah
Still yearnin' - and the wheel's
Still turnin' - ooh, let me tell you why
We're jivin' - and the beat's
Still drivin' - and we're all
Sky divin' - rock 'n' roll never die

I can't breathe in the city
Got dust in my lungs
I get mad in the country
Everythin' seem to go wrong
You might think I'm playin' around
But my heart is true
I got reason to believe
That sweet soul magic
Gonna tear my heart in two

Music makes the world go around
I've been flyin' on the wings of the sound
It feels so good from way up here, ha, ha
Ow, still a believer
Headin' for the stars

Oh yeah
Still burnin'
Still yearnin'

Still burnin'
Still yearnin'
Still turnin' - better than ever guy
We're jivin'
Still drivin'
Sky divin' - rock 'n' roll never die

Don't say that you love me, I can't go that road
But don't think for a moment that my heart went cold
I keep thinkin' about what I lost
And what I might have found
I went to sleep and when I woke
Everything had turned around

Still burnin' - yeah
Still yearnin'
Still turnin' - and a new day dawnin'
We're jivin'
Still drivin'
Sky divin' - early in the mornin'

Still burnin' - yeah
Still yearnin' - and the wheel's
Still turnin' - better than ever guy
We're jivin' - and the beat's
Still drivin' - and we're all
Sky divin' - rock 'n' roll never die

Small


Track 4. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 4:40.
This track was later recorded by Roger Taylor for his 2013 album 'Fun On Earth', and credited as written by him.

Lyrics:
I like to sit here in the sunshine
The trees in the fields are green sublime
Suspended in time
And don't it make you feel small

I like to sit here by the fire's light
The trees in the fields lie bare to the night
The stars burn bright
And don't it make you feel small

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone
Everyone needs a place they can hide
Everyone needs to find peace sublime

I like to sit here in the autumn time
The trees in the fields they rustle in the wind
The church bells gently chime
Gentle on your mind
Suspended in time
And don't it make you feel small

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Everyone needs to find peace sublime
Oh-oh, peace of mind

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone
Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone
Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone
Everyone needs a place they can hide
Everyone needs to find peace sublime

Ohh, ohhh, peace of mind

Warboys


Track 5. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 3:18.
This track was previously performed live by Paul Rodgers and a version is available on his 'Live In Glasgow' album, length 3:43.

Lyrics:
They were born with the knowledge of the struggle to survive
They were raised learning only ways to stay alive
Their language is the language of the bullet and the gun
If you see them coming, baby better run

Here come the warboys
Here come the warboys

Well they look so pretty as they march and drill
It's such a pity that they're dressed to kill
Soldiers marching two by two, ha
When it all comes down they know exactly what to do

Here come the
Warboys
Here come the warboys
Warboys
Warboys your boys, politicians toys
Warboys our boys, make a lot of noise
When the lightning explodes
I pray for your soul
Ow, hup, two, three, four

Well they look so fierce they gonna tear out your heart
When they get near we gonna see what they got
Hold on to your soul friend of mine
I'll see you in hell, some other time

Here come the
Warboys
Here come the
Warboys
Here come the warboys
Here they come

War
War
Warboys
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Talkin' 'bout
Warboys

We Believe


Track 6. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 6:08.
Studio Versions:
1. Promo Edit (3:40) (available on an Italian promo CD only; this loses the sections from approximately 0:28 to 1:26, 3:41 to 5:05 and 5:41 to 5:47)

2. Official Download, Budapest 2008 (5:33) (recorded in Budapest, Hungary, on 28 October 2008)

Lyrics: (the Promo Edit loses the lyrics in blue)
I believe there's no evil out there we didn't have a hand in
You believe it's a time for peace and a time for understanding

Some of us believe that we are chosen
And if God is on our side we'll win the game
And some of us believe that there's a heaven
Where the trumpets sound and the judges call your name
But let's get it straight

I believe there's just one chance in this world to hear our brothers
Yeah, you believe there's a better way to listen to each other

We don't get what the other guy is saying
We hear the words but we don't understand
So around the world the same old anger raging
And we all cry for shame and the same old tragedy goes down

We believe there's a better way to fight
There's a way to make our children safe at night
Yeah, we believe
And we believe there's a war we could be winning
But the only way to win it is to give what we need to receive

I believe we need a hero to step boldly from the shadows
Yeah, you believe there must be someone on the scene that fits the bill
A man or a woman who knows how to say I'm sorry
With courage in his heart to match his creed
A leader who can build a brand new morning
And match the tide of changes
Match the intent with the deed

Oh, oh, we believe there's a deed of obligation
To bring reconciliation
To make peace with every nation in our time
We believe
We believe
there's not a minute we should be wasting
When the darkness falls it's too late to fix the crime
(Oooh, oooh) it's peace that we need
That's what we believe

We believe, we believe, we believe, we believe, we believe, we believe, we believe, we believe, we believe

Every father, every mother knows the meaning
Human treasure that our leaders do forget
And the bullets fly in the face of common reason
And the pain we give is the legacy in the end we get
Hey, yeah, yeah
Hey, yeah

(We believe) we believe
there's a song that's worth the singing
(Oooh, oooh) it's a song of truth we're bringing
(Oooh, oooh) there's a way to share the Earth with everyone
(We believe) we believe every creature has a being
(We believe) has a right to respect and feeling
(We believe) to live and breathe and flourish in the sun (ooooh)
Yeah


That's what we believe
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
That's what we believe.

Call Me


Track 7. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 2:59.
Lyrics:
Call me if you need my love, my love baby
Call me if you need my love

Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love, ha
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love

She lives in a luxury
Apartment in the heart of town
I live in the country and
My house is tumbling down

Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love

I met her in her neighbourhood
I was just passing through
One look was all it took, yeah
One look or two

Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love

You got my name, you got my number
You got my number, got my name
Hey, hey
Have mercy

Now I'm gonna settle down
Get myself a wife or two
No more of this running around
Like I used to do

Call me if you need my love, baby
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love, baby
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love, baby
Call me if you need my love
Call me if you need my love, baby
Call me if you need my love

Ha, ha, ha, ha
Yeah

Track 8. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 4:28.
Live Versions:
1. Official Download, London 2008 (4:16) (recorded in London, England, on 7 November 2008)
Lyrics:
Uh-huh
When the moon rises
The dogs will howl
Look out of your window
I'll be on the prowl
I'm not usually, huh
A gambling man
But, ooh I just wanna
Hold up my hands

And say I'm
Taking a chance on your love
Woah, I'm
Taking a chance on your love

I'm not superstitious, ha
And I don't wear no charm
I don't carry my heart
On the sleeve of my arm
Seven years of bad luck, please
Don't worry me
'Cos when I look into the mirror
Here's the future I see

I'm taking a chance on your love
Woah, I'm taking a chance on your love

Place your bets, better yet
Don't forget, what I said
Roll the dice, spin the wheel
Always remember, you've got to keep it real

I don't believe in voodoo
Black magic was never my style
But I believe that you do, ha, ha
And it won't take much time
To gather the potions
That weave your magic spell, yeah
The moon on the ocean
Has a secret to tell, ha

But anyway I'm
Taking a chance on your love
Woah, I'm taking a chance on your love
Woah, I'm taking a chance on your love

Ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha
Yeah

Some Things That Glitter

This track was later recorded as an acoustic version by Kerry Ellis in 2010 (featuring Brian) for her debut album 'Anthems', retitled as 'I Loved A Butterfly'. A live version was also released on the 'Acoustic By Candlelight' album in 2013.

Lyrics:
Hmm
Once I loved a butterfly
Don't wonder how, don't ask me why
But I believed what I'd been told
All things that glitter can't be gold
Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Those jealous minds conspired to say
Just let that creature fly away
How can it be she has it all
Her pride is headed for a fall
Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Oh Lord, what races we run
Seeking our place in the sun
Reaching and hoping we'll find the right one

Now every day a new joy brings
My butterfly grew golden wings
It seems we find as we grow old
Some things that glitter may be gold
Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, yeah
Yeah, yeah, some things that glitter may be gold

So let us mind what's there to see
Before our hearts become too cold
In spite of all that we've been told
Some things that glitter may be gold

Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold
Ooh-ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, ooh-ooh-oooh, yeah
Some things that glitter may be gold

Wanna get my face

Ain't got nothing, no
Nothing, nothing to show
Make me a celebrity

I want to be
A face on TV, I wanna be on your screen
Then you can see
I'm a celebrity

I wanna get my features
In magazines
See this creature on every street
On every screen

Write my life story
Before I'm twenty one
I've got to tell the world
They may say I'm dumb, but ah

Ain't got nothing, no
Nothing, nothing to show
Make me a celebrity

I want to be
A face on TV, I wanna be on your screen
Then you can see
I'm a celebrity
Hey, hey

I wanna be a star
In a Broadway musical
They're gonna love me
I can't sing or dance at all

Some may say
I'm lackadaisical
And if I was real good
I'd stand no chance at all, but

I want to be
A face on TV, yeah I wanna be on your screen
Then you can see
I'm a celebrity

(Then you can say) then you can say
You knew me one day
(Then you will see) and then you will see
I'm a celebrity
Oh, oh, oh

C-Celebrity
Wanna be a C-C-C-lebrity, make my dreams come true
C-Celebrity
Wanna be a C-C-C-C-lebrity

I want to be heard
I want to be seen on every TV screen

Through The Night


Track 11. Written by Queen and Paul Rodgers. Length 4:53.
Lyrics:
Tell me something that'll ease the pain
I am living life in vain
Crying doesn't help me anymore

Tell me something that'll ease my mind
I am walking the line
Trying doesn't get me anywhere

I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Tell me something 'cos I need to know
Can you teach me how to live
How to understand, how to love, and how to give
Anger burns in bitterness and fills me up inside
Can't face it and there's no place I can hide

I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Tell me something 'cos I need to know
Can you teach me how to live
How to understand, how to love, and how to give
Anger burns in bitterness and fills me up inside
Without your love there's nowhere I can hide

I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Say It's Not True

Lyrics: (the first four verses are sung by Roger, the fifth and sixth by Brian, the seventh by Roger and Brian jointly, and the rest by Paul)
The harder we play
The faster we fall
When we think that we know it all
We know nothing at all

The letter arrives
Like a bolt from the blue
So what's left of your lives
All your dreams lost to you

Say it ain't true
Say it today
When I open my eyes
Will it all go away

Say it's not true
Say it's not real
Can't be happening to you
Can't be happening to me

It's hard not to cry
It's hard to believe
So much heartache and pain
So much reason to grieve

With the wonders of science
All the knowledge we've stored
Magic cocktails for lives
People just can't afford

Say it's not true
You can say it's not right
So hard to believe
The size of the crime

Say it's not true
You can say it's not right
So hard to believe
The size of the crime

Sayyy
Say it's not real
Ooooh
It could be happening to you

Say it's not true
Say it's not right
It's hard to believe
The size of the crime

Say it's not true
Say it's not real
Could be happening to you
It could be happening to me

Yeahhh!!!!

Woooh, hooo

Surf's up
School's out
I got a criminal urge to
Twist and shout
Ooh, ooh

I've been searching
My whole life through
For some perfect dream
Imagined in my youth

Follow that dream
Surf's up - school's out
Surf's up - school's out

For a perfect life
Find a perfect girl
You gotta follow that dream
To a perfect world
Ooh, ooh

I've been a searcher
And adventurer too
This ride still runs
I wanna ride with you

Oooh
This ride still runs
I wanna ride with you
Follow that dream
Surf's up - school's out
Surf's up - school's out

In the towns and the country
We all lay and dreamed our dreams
Then we found the world is tough
And all is not quite what it seems
Gotta take it by the horns
Gotta seize your precious day
Got to follow your dream
Follow that dream
Follow that dream
Yeahhh!!!!
Ooh, ooh

Follow that dream
Surf's up - school's out
Follow that dream
Surf's up - school's out
Surf's up
Follow that dream
Surf's up - school's out

Lyrics:
As I walk along I wonder
What went wrong with our love
A love that was so strong
And as I still walk on, I think of
The things we've done together
While our hearts were young

I'm a walking in the rain
Tears are falling, I feel the pain
Wishing you were here by me
To end this misery

And I wonder
I why, why, why, why, wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway

I'm a walking in the rain
Tears are falling, I feel the pain
Wishing you were here by me
To end this misery

And I wonder
I why, why, why, why, wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay
My little runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
Oh, oh

As I walk along I wonder
What went wrong with our love
A love that was so strong
And as I still walk on, I think of
The things we've done together
While our hearts were young

I'm a walking in the rain
Tears are falling, I feel the pain
Wishing you were here by me
To end this misery

And I wonder
I why, why, why, why, wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran away
And I wonder
Where she will stay

My little runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
A run, run, run, run, runaway
Oooh, ooh
Ha, ha, ha

Walking in the rain
Tears are falling, I
Feel the pain

I'm wishing you were here by me
Oh, to end this misery
I'm wishing you were here by me
Oh, to end this misery

I wonder
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) I wonder
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) mmm, where she will stay
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) where did she go
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) my little runaway
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) my little runaway, yeah
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) my little runaway
(A run, run, run, run, runaway) oh runaway
Woo

Take Love

Lyrics:
I can't love you baby
You keep on running away
I can't hold on
If you don't wanna stay

Your runaway heart
And your restless soul
I hope you know
What it is you're looking for

Take love where you find it
May not come so easy next time
Take love where you find it
May not come so easy next time

You're here today
Baby, gone tomorrow
The hearts we steal
And the love we borrow

Give a little back
And there's no harm done
Even the mystic's say
Gotta have a little fun, now

Take love where you find it
May not come so easy next time
Take love where you find it
'Cos it may not come so easy next time

Lift your eyes to the sky
See your mind's horizon
Lift your eyes to the sky
See your mind's horizon
But wait

Take love where you find it
May not come so easy next time
Take love where you find it
'Cos it may not come so easy next time

There are many different
Different kinds of love
But there's only one
That's really good in life

When you're hearts in tune
With a fire so rare
You're gonna find it
Shining everywhere

Take love where you find it
Take love where you find it
Baby, baby, baby
Let's give a little back, yeah

Take it, take it, baby

Yeah
