Raised on Rock

  • I was born in a hurricane
    Nothing to lose and everything to gain
    Ran before I walked
    Reaching for the top
    Out of control just like a runaway train

    I never walked on the narrow path
    I always wanted what I didn't have
    All was not enough
    Riding lady luck
    Driving in the fast lane and just stepped on the gas

    Cause I was raised on rock
    My dad was howling but my heart was a rolling stone
    Yeah I was raised on rock
    My mama said I had a devil to scratch my soul
    And I was raised on rock

    Shoot me up baby make me high
    And hit the jackpot in the heat of the night
    Wanna kiss your lips
    Wanna move your hips
    See my desire in your laser-beam eyes

    You shake me up got me spinning â??round
    You know what's going up must come down
    Tomorrow I'll be gone
    A million miles from home
    The only road I know leads out of town

    Cause I was raised on rock
    My dad was howling but my heart was a rolling stone
    Yeah I was raised on rock
    My mama said I had a devil to scratch my soul
    And I was raised on rock

    Growing up with the guitar men
    Growing up way too fast
    Follow the sound of a rock 'n roll band
    This call will always last

    Cause I was raised on rock Writer/s: KLAUS MEINE, MARTIN HANSEN, MIKAEL NORD ANDERSON
