Lyrics

Another Night

Written By: THE HOT ROCKS

when i saw u last night, you led me through the fire,
i won’t let you go, now baby.
and as the smoke cleared- we were out on a wire.
i wanna let you know, i need you baby.
i won’t lie, cuz it’s not my fault-
i lose myself when i’m with you.
i saw you last night in a dream named desire. i won't let you go baby...

(chorus)
i dont want to lie awake in bed alone-
i don't want to fall asleep by the phone, tonight.
where are you?
i don't know where you are... i'm waitin for you.

and when i woke up, i was on my knees,
give her back to me, or let me forget her.
now i’m stuck flipin through some old memories, that my camera chose to remember.
and i’m sick and tired, of being alone. i wanna lose myself with you.
now all i got is a photo- but i won’t let you go baby…

(chorus)
i dont want to lie awake in bed alone-
i don't want to fall asleep by the phone, tonight.
where are you?
i don't know where you are... i'm waitin for you.

A-OK

Written By: THE HOT ROCKS

well i woke up in the mornin in my hoodie and my timbs, found my stereo's been lifted-and my rolly and my rims... she said she'd be my boo, but now she's theivin from my crew- but i don't really care my favorite song is on the stereo. i got down to the corner and saw her all up on this chimp; he was strutin like a playa and playin like a pimp, when i started to front instead she slapped me across the head- but i don't really care my favorite song is on the radio.

she turned me on but she turned me away. my favorite songs on now everything is a-ok.

well i was mackin on this shorty, she was lookin hella fly- so i asked her for her number but she said, "i got a guy" she had a dynamite badunk and i was getting crazy crunk- but i don't really care my favorite song is in the disco. rollin with my homies and the tops pulled back. we got the benz bumpin and the benjamins stacked- we pull up to the club and i'm feelin like a stud cuz love is in the air my favorite band is at the rock show!
