Track Name: Rock & Roll Kids
Magdalene
came on the same scene
right about the same time as me

she played guitar
and she followed the stars
from the pages of a magazine

we went out to the City of Angels
where the sidewalks are paved with gold
and the people are drinking from the fountain of youth
so that they never have to get old

we were the next big things rising
heading for the coast

we were rock and roll kids
with a burning obsession
for G-d only knows

we got lost
with the bright lights
burning our eyes too close to the sun
she took off
about as soon as we landed
for the promise of a chosen one

I got a gig in a strip club
just about a state's drive out of town
playing covers of To Lefty from Willie
for the perpetually down

we were the next big things rising
headed for the coast
we were rock and roll kids
with a burning obsession
for G-d only knows

when she came in asking
for a job and a glass of wine
looking like an out of luck actress
who'd forgotten her lines

I said Magdalene
don't you remember me
we were kids once and we were young
running for the stages and the silver screens
and the promise of a little fun?

she said yes of course I remember
those fountains they never get old
I'll take one more shot
of that give it all we got
cause that's a drink that's best served cold

we were the next big things rising
headed for the coast
we were rock and roll kids
with a burning obsession for

rock and roll kids
with a burning obsession for

rock and roll kids
with a burning obsession for
G-d only knows
Track Name: Jukebox in Heaven
There's a jukebox in heaven
with my record on the cue
C 27 the one about you

the promised land's waiting
the honky tonk's calling us home

hold me my lover
my sister, my friend
let's go to the place
this music never ends

show me the kingdom
show me the moon on your skin

There's a record up in heaven
called Do You Hear Me Lord
there's the answer beside me
she's about five foot four

the perfect fifth harmony
lifting the notes of this song

hold me my lover
my sister, my friend
let's go to the place
this music never ends

show me the kingdom
show me the moon on your skin
and I'll show you the way
the revelation begins

oh my G-d
look at the way
the light coming in
shows your hair
shows your eyes
shows your lips
shows your smile
shows your sin

there's a way up to heaven
with no cover at the door
it's us in the bedroom
our covers on the floor
C 27
the honky tonk bringin it all back home

hold me my lover
my sister, my friend
let's go to the place
this music never ends

show me the kingdom
show me the moon on your skin
and I'll show you the way
the way
I'll show you the way
the way
I'll show you the way

heaven lets us in
Track Name: Justin Fallen and the Angels - Dance Hall (Rhythm of a Saturday Night)
Let's go play in the streetlights, baby
let's go out tonight
the weather's warm and the radio's blastin
the rhythm of a Saturday night

Let's go down to the carnival baby
let's go ride the rides
there ain't nothin better
than this hot desert summer
in these crazy, crazy times

let's go down to the country
let's pull over at the five and dime
let's get groovin'
let's get easy
and let's get high

Remember when
it's about to begin
just make sure your hands and your feet
are fastened securely, babe
when it begins, so it begins, let it begin
just make sure you hold on, hold on to me
the sun as it sets
in the mysterious west
spinning colors through the sky

the pride of the country,
the pride of the land,
the lights are playing tricks on us
getting down in a dancehall

Let's go down to the thick of it, baby
my friends are playing some shows
let's make out like a couple of bandits
at the back of the places we go

Let's go down to the cinema, baby
let's go paint the town
a couple of kids in a beat up apartment
gonna party like the sun goes down

Let's go down to the city
let's go down to the hell of a time
let's get groovin, let's get easy
and let's get high

Remember when
it's about to begin
just make sure your hands and your feet
are fastened securely, babe
when it begins, so it begins, let it begin
just make sure you let go, let go

the sun as it sets
in the mysterious west
spinning colors through the sky

the pride of the country,
the pride of the land
the lights are playing tricks on us
getting down in a dancehall
getting down in a dancehall
down in a dancehall
you and me
getting down in a dancehall
everyone we see
getting down in a dance hall
Lou Reed
getting down in a dance hall

alright
alright
alright
alright
Track Name: Love Junkie
Love junkie with a wandering eye
turning around with a look around walk around
Love junkie with a poet's mind
dirty as a metaphor inside what he writes

He's a long gone player
with the right idea
a little more money make it right next time

He's a true love junkie with a needle and thread
it's a cruel love monkey that's addicted to sin

there's a whole lotta rhythm
a whole lotta soul to dance to
if you want to

there's a hole in my pocket
but I got me some cash to spare, he says
I'm a rich man living on a poor man's pleased to meet you
my love

there's a whole lotta rhythm
a whole lotta soul to share, out there

Love monkey swinging through these trees
growin up to the rock and roll puppet show
getting funky with the jungle he sees
he's a smooth mother fucker walking through these leaves

let me buy you dinner, let me cool you down
I'm a bad dude covering a sensitive man

I'm a true love junkie with a needle and thread
it's a cruel love monkey and I'll stop when I'm dead

there's a whole lotta rhythm
a whole lotta soul to dance to
if you want to

there's a hole in my pocket
but I got me some cash to spare, he says
I'm a rich man living on a poor man's pleased to meet you
my love

there's a whole lotta rhythm
a whole lotta soul to share, out there
