Lyrics

Cold Cold Night

Written By: Acid Speed Band

It's been a rainy day for you and me,
It's been a cold cold night for you and me
Well, I've got you in my arms
I've got you in my dreams
But nothing ever seems to fade away

And our love will always be shining in our hearts
Well, I swear to God we'll never be apart
Every little thing I've done
I've done it for you
Every precious thing I have
I gave it to you, for youuuu

Well, I'm a man
Who will fight for your honor, babe
I'll keep the last drop of my blood
And my last breath

I know it wasn't always easy
and the tide, oh so high
We've been tumbling down
Oh baby, that's OK
We've got no money, we've got nothing to take away
But our love is so strong, we'll find a way

Every little thing I've done
I've done it for you
Every precious thing I have
I gave it to you, oh youuuu

Whoa..
Its been a rainy day
It's been a damn cold night
It's been a rainy day
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Its been a rainy day, it's been a damn cold night
yeah yeah yeah

Well, you know I'm a man
Who will fight for your honor, babe
I'm the knight in shining armor
I'll keep the last drop of my blood
And my last breath,

It's been a rainy day
It's been a damn cold night
It's been a rainy day
yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah

It's been a damn cold night.........

Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

Written By: Acid Speed Band


Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out

It’s so hard to sleep tonight
My mind’s flyin so high
It really touches the wide open sky

I can’t feel my heart beat
Can’t find the earth on my feet
The strange trip makes me complete

The man with wings on his back
He’s popping his eyes and paint them black

And all his hippie people laugh

Just like a dyin’ fish on the ocean
I can’t stabilize my emotion
I’m between right or wrong dimension

So I see a man, he comes to me
He’s passing through my bedroom window
With a wicked smile then he said

Turn on turn in… drop out
Turn on turn in….drop out
Turn on turn in….drop out

(interlude)

So I see a man, he comes to me
He’s passing through my bedroom window
With a wicked smile then he said

Turn on turn in… drop out
Turn on turn in… drop out
Turn on turn in… drop out

A Better Place

Written By: Acid Speed Band

A Better Place

Well, I can’t forget the first time we met baby
When I saw you sitting all alone that night

I could see the crowd
While I was singing on stage
But you stood out and
Stole my heart away

Well, baby it’s been so long
And the moment’s never been gone
And now nothing’s goin wrong
Just smile on our faces everyday

Now the three of us are
Living in our house of love
No, there wouldn’t be a
Better place to live

Well baby keep holding on
Never let me go – oh down
No there’s nothing goin wrong
Just smile on our faces everyday hey hey

Well its me, the same man you once knew that night
I could ever make you cry, oh don’t ask why
God keep our love in every night and day
We’ve no excuses to see it torn and frayed

To Be Free

Written By: Acid Speed Band

To Be Free

Well she cries inside and through her tears
She looks at me and
I wonder how the sun sets in her face
She took a glass of wine and burned a cigarette
While everybody’s dancing, she starts to talk

She says love's just a word and doing nothing for me
After all this time I live well, I’m nothing but a stupid doll
He thinks I was born just to be his mannequin
Tears dropping from her eyes, fire burning in her heart, I see

She don’t need no money
To make her happy
She don’t need no fancy clothes
And a diamond ring
As time just passes her by
As the world grows old so fast
She wonders why it would be
She would just end up like this

She did everything she could to be free
She gave everything she had to be free
Everything she wants is to be free
Everything she needs is to be free
Oh, Free

She don’t need no money
To make her happy
She don’t need no fancy clothes
And a diamond ring
As time just passes her by
As the world grows old so fast
Whether right turns to wrong
And wrong turns to right
She wishes she would never give up the fight

She did everything she could to be free
She gave everything she had to be free
Everything she wants is to be free
Everything she needs is to be free
Oh, she wants to be free

Ode to Uncle Jack

Written By: Acid Speed Band


Ode to Uncle Jack

Well we drive so fast
Just like the speed of light
Multi-colored cars, headlights shining bright

Well, you and me live in fantasy
Psychedelic mind
Give us some ecstasy

Well, as we drive down the highway
That rockin feeling baby
Never goes away

We’ve got that hippy feeling, from the bottle of Jack D
And on and on, yet we feel so free
It’s hard to see the misery
From glass to glass
This wild heart never been last

Well, as we drive down the highway
That rockin feelin baby
Never goes away

(interlude)

We are the saints of the Bourbon God
We are the young men in blue and green
Strangers in town, in shoes of brown
Electrocuted by a million watts of sun

Well, as we drive down the highway
That rockin feelin baby……Never goes away X3

Gone, gone gone

Bocah

Written By: Acid Speed Band


Bocah

Sebersit siksa menoreh nasibmu bocah
Tiada niat kau lahir kedunia
Kini ayah bunda gak tau dimana ?
Siapa namamu kaupun tak tahu

Bercermin kumuh akhirnya kau tumbuh
Mengintip nista engkaupun biasa
Kejam dan sadis mata lo menatap
Semua merasuk hidup dijiwamu
Gak sengaja…………………

Reff 1 : Siapa ayah bunda?
Siapa yang telah mencampakkanmu
Kini ada rasa benci
Tapi tak tahu
Pada siapa??…… kepada siapa??…

Interlude 2X

Panas terik menyengat kulitmu
Asap tebal selimuti duniamu
Hujan kedinginan tak terbayangkan
Tak ingin rasakan, lepasnya dendam
Pahit terbuang

Interlude 7X ke kunci B

Balik ke Bait **, Reff 2,

Reff 2 : Siapa ayah bunda?
Siapa yang telah mencampakkanmu
Kini ada rasa benci
Tapi tak tahu pada siapa
Pada siapa….……. 4 X

Low Low Low

LOW LOW LOW

His name is Billie Grass
He used to be so fast

Never went to school
Cuz he always lost his cool
He always took his guitar
The black side was so far

Now he goes so slowly
And now he’s getting old
This unmarried man
He keeps on rock ‘n rollin

But the smoke gets him
Oh so low low low low low

Is name is Berry Joe
He’s now 60 years old
Still dreaming for a gold
Well he sold his soul to
A group of rock ‘n rollers

Just like an old panther on the prowl
Now he goes so slowly
And now he’s getting old

But the smoke gets him
Oh so low low low low low

Well his God already died
The world consumed by fire
Here comes the judgment day
There’s no more time for play
Better say your prayers

The black side is so cold
On the black side its so so cold

Liar

Written By: Acid Speed Band

Liar

Have I ever lied to you baby?
Have I ever cheated on you darling?
I’ve got no reason to make you blue
I’ve got no reason to make you cry oh no

There were times when you and me
Were separated for days and nights
But there is one thing for sure, baby
I’m gonna love you till the stars fall from the sky

(interlude)

I will always be true to you, baby
I will always take care of you, baby
Yeah, you can count on me, baby
Cause I’m the best- the best man you’ve ever had.

Pasti

Written By: Acid Speed Band

Pasti

Cukup jauh kita nikmati semua
Segala rasa bergejolak indah
Bahkan hadirnya cintamu
Kau nyatakan hanya untukku
Tapi mengapa padaku
Masih ada keraguan semu

Bila cinta tak menjawab semua
Tanpa kamu kukan tetap melangkah
Tak perlu kita berjanji
Jalani saja semua yang pasti
Bersamamu lebih indah
Bila kita tlah…..sudahlah ha ho ho

(interlude)

Mungkin bila waktu akan bicara
Tuk menguji kuatnya cinta kita
Pasti akan kutemukan
Cinta siapa kan bertahan
Mulut hanya bisa bicara
Namun coba kau buktikan…buktikan….

Geremis

Written By: Acid Speed Band

Gerimis

Matahari bersinar indah
Tak ada hujan langit pun cerah
Gerimis turun membasahi hatiku

Temanku datang dengan senyum
Bertanya mengapa aku termenung
Oh Gerimis turun membasahi hatiku

Oh luka itu masih terus membayangiku
Saat dia pergi meninggalkan luka dihatiku wo..

Mungkin esok entah lusa
Aku akan baik-baik saja
Gerimis turun membasahi hatiku..ho yeah

(interlude)

Oh luka itu masih terus membayangiku
Saat dia pergi meninggalkan luka dihatiku

Mungkin esok entah lusa
Aku akan baik-baik saja

Gerimis turun membasahi hatiku….hu woo
Gerimis turun membasahi hatiku…..
Gerimis turun membasahi hatiku…..wo wo hu woo

Just 17

Written By: Acid Speed Band

Just 17

You are so sweet
You are so pretty
You are so nice, nice to me

I watch you dancing, all alone
You are so young
Just turned seventeen

You act so free
You are so wild
You are so hot, hot to me

You are so good, good to me
You take my hand, my soul
My everything

If you’re down
I’ll be around
I want to lay down, down on the ground

Oh, babe I’ll make it better-wait and see
