Undiscovered Soul (1998)

MADE IN AMERICA
Richie Sambora, Richie Supa

Made in America
Nineteen fifty-nine
Born down by the factories
Cross the jersey city line
Raised on radio
Just a jukebox kid
I was all right

Just a small town homeboy
With big time dreams
Following his conscience
In a world full of extremes
Fresh outta high school
Only seventeen
I was all right

Blinded by my vision
There was just no turning back
Like a runaway train
Life was steaming down the track
You'd say I'd never make it out
But I kept on hanging on
Every night I prayed to Jesus
And held my head up strong
I was all right

I landed on my feet
Made in America
I was brought up on the street
My old man's independence
Seemed good enough for me
I was made in America
Made in America

Never cared much about politics
Till I was twenty-one
But I woke up when Lennon
Found the wrong end of a gun
He left his inspiration
Before he said goodbye
And we were all right

We all lose out innocence
It's impossible to hold
I didn't know it then
I had a packet full of gold
When I kissed those younger days goodbye
It almost broke my heart
I was going to through my growing pains
I was driving in the dark
But I was all right

I landed on my feet
Made in America
I was brought up on the street
I'm facing up to freedom
And chasing down my dream
I was made in America
Yeah I was made in America

Yeah we all lose our innocence
It's impossible to hold
I just didn't know it then
I had a packet full of gold
When they said I'd never make it
I just kept on hanging on
And every night I prayed to Jesus
And I held my head up strong
And I was all right

I landed on my feet
Made in America
I was brought up on the street
Facing up to who I am
Chasing down my dream
I was made in America
Yeah I was made in America
 

HARD TIMES COMES EASY
Sambora, Supa

It's amazing
We go through changes
When times get crazy
It's up and down, it's hot and cold
These complications
Just keep on coming
This ain't no running
When it comes to life that's how it goes

'Round and round we go
Sometimes it feels like
We're on a roller coaster ride
Baby don't you know
It could eat up
If you try and keep it all inside

Chorus:
Seems like hard times come easy
We do a lot of hangin' on these days
But the heart finds a reason
And love always seems to find a way

Even if it hurts
Even if it hurts us baby
There's gonna be thunder
There's gonna be rain
There's gonna be those times
We both get caught up in the pain
The realisation
Keeps sinkin' in
The way you make it
Is learn to take it on the chin

'Round and round we go
It's just another day
With trouble knockin' at your door
Baby don't you know
We can work it out

Chorus

Even if it hurts
Even if it hurts us baby

'Round and round we go
Sometimes it feels like
We're on a roller coaster ride
Baby don't you know
We'll keep holdin' on
Through the changes that we feel inside

Chorus

Hard times come easy babe
 

FALLEN FROM GRACELAND
Sambora, David Bryan, Supa

There's a line that you cross
When you find out that you're lost
When your world is closing in
And it crawls under your skin
And the heart's always blind
When it's in this state of mind
There's a burning light in this town
For every heart that's broken down tonight
Here tonight

Chorus:
You're stranded out there in the rain
And you just can't see past the pain tonight
You've fallen from graceland
Fallen from graceland

When you're too proud to crawl
It keeps your back against the wall
You wanna die, but you live
With nothing left to give
And there's no place to hide
When you're tangled up inside
There's a burning light in this town
For every heart that's broken down tonight
Here tonight

Chorus

And there's no place to hide
When you're tangled up inside
There's a burning light in this town
For every heart that's broken down tonight
Here tonight

Chorus:
You've stranded out there in the rain
But you just can't see past the pain tonight
You've fallen from graceland
Fallen you've fallen from graceland tonight
Fallen, fallen, fallen, fallen from graceland

And tonight
There's a light
A bright light burning
For every broken heart in this world tonight
Deep inside
Yes, there's one light burning
That will lead you through the storm tonight
It's gonna be alright
Be alright, yeah
Gonna be alright, yeah
It's gonna be alright
 (oh, it's gonna be alright, tonight)
 

IF GOD WAS A WOMAN
Sambora, Bryan, Supa

If god was a woman
With long blond hair
Would you kneel at her altar
And offer her prayer
Could she be your addiction
Could she make you sin

If god was a woman
And you were her man
If god was a woman
Would you be impressed
If she showed up in high heels
And a pretty red dress
Would you make a donation
Or would you draw the line
Would you yield to temptation
Or savor her wine

If god was a woman
She'd come like an angel
Or a devil in disguise
When she left in the morning
Would you lose your religion
Or kiss your faith goodbye, goodbye
If god was a woman

If god was a woman
Tell me who could we blame
Would she make Jesus righteous
Or completely insane

If god was a woman
Would she kiss and tell
Would we wind up in heaven
Or would we all burn in hell

If god was a woman
She'd come like an angel
Or a devil in disguise, oh yeah
And if she left in the morning
Would you lose your religion
Or kiss your faith goodbye, goodbye
If god was a woman
And you were her man, yeah

If god was a woman
Would she come like an angel
Or a devil in disguise, oh yeah
When she left in the morning
Would you lose your religion
Or kiss your faith goodbye, goodbye
If god was a woman
If god was a woman
If god was a woman
If god was a woman

We'd all burn in hell
If god was a
Woman, woman, woman, woman
If god was a woman
Tell me who would we blame
If god was a woman
If god was a woman
She'd drive us insane, yeah
 

ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS
Sambora, Supa

When I look at you
You're beautiful
There comes a time in someone's life
When you find things that matter
And every time we touch
The love runs deep
We realize it's ours to keep
And that's all that really matters

Chorus:
You'll always be my sweet addiction
In this life my saving grace
You're all that really matters
You know it's true
Ain't no me without you

When you're in the dark
Baby don't despair
I'm just a spark away
I will be there
And that's all that matters

Chorus

We'll share our lives together
Yes our flame burns on forever
And at the final curtain call
We can say we did it all

Chorus

And when we turns to dust
And we fly away
There'll be a light still burning bright
And that's all that really matters
 

YOU'RE NOT ALONE
Sambora, Tom Marolda

You can be a million miles away
I will always love you
You can be a thousand through always
I'll be thinking of you
No matter where you try to hide
You are always gonna find me
Right where I belong
Been here beside you all along
Like some ancient star
Forever we'll remain.

Even if the sky should ever fall from grace
If I die or fade away
In the end you'll always know
You're not alone

You can change your face to someone else
Still I won't forget you
When you're feeling lost inside yourself
I will come and get you
These days the only saviour you can find
Is something you believe in
Deep inside your heart
You might believe in me
Like some ancient star
Forever we'll remain

Even if the sky should ever fall from grace
If I die or fade away
In your life you'll always know

I know you got your fears and doubts
They're weighing on your mind
But something's gonna save you
You're gonna see the truth inside
I'll be right beside you
When the world tears apart
On your book like a shadow
No matter where you are
Like some ancient star
Forever we'll remain

Even if the sky should ever fall from grace
If I die or fade away
In the end you'll always know
You're not alone
You're not alone
 

IN IT FOR LOVE
Sambora, Supa

Life is a road
Forever winding where it leads us
I don't know
In it together
For better or worse
Searching for our pal of gold
Time leaves a trail of broken hearts
So many arrows just keep missing their mark
Baby that ain't us

Chorus:
Nothing else matters
When you're in it for love
Together we can only go higher
You can reach any rainbow
You're dreaming of
Nothing else matters at all
When you're in it for love, baby

Yeah
We'll share in the laughter
Share in the tears
And the promises we keep
Life can be crazy
Love can be cruel
But it's always been a two way street
You try and give it all you have to give
So many people don't know how to forgive
Baby that ain't us.

Chorus

You try
And give it all you have to give
So many people don't know how to forgive
Baby that ain't us

Chorus

When you're in it for love baby.
When you're in it for love baby
In it for love
When you're in it for love baby
When you're in it for love baby
When you're in it for love baby
In it for love
 

CHAINED
Sambora, Marolda, White

Hey, what's this feeling
I've never been down this far before
I was scared of believing
That love would never find my door

I was chained
Chained
Chained to my broken dreams
I never knew I was supposed to be
Waiting for someone to come and rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me

Hey am I dreaming?
I never woke up from night before
Unaware I was bleeding
Slowly dying like the sun
Going down once more

Chorus:
I was chained
Chained
Chained to my broken dreams
I never knew just where my life would lead
Hoping that someone would come and rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me

Alone in the darkness
'Til saw the light
Shining from your eyes
Now it burns inside and it keeps me alive

Chorus:
Lord I've been chained
I've been chained, yeah.
Was chained
Chained
Chained to these broken dreams
I never knew who I was supposed to be
Hoping that someone would come and rescue me
I've been chained
Chained
I've been chained to these broken dreams
I never knew just where my life would lead
Waiting for you to come and rescue me
Hoping that someone would come and
Rescue me
Rescue me
Rescue me
Ooh yeah
Rescue me
 

HARLEM RAIN
Sambora, Supa

The old man down on the corner
Is downing in his pain
I can see the sorrow in his eyes
His tears, the leave a stain
The streets have left him broken
He's in the final phase
It's been a long hard road
From his glory days
 

There's a tattoo of his sweetheart
Fading on his arm
He talks of painful tragedy
How he lost his lucky charm
His memory is clouded
From the thunder in this vein
He's vanishing, vanishing gone
In the Harlem rain

Chorus:
Harlem rain coming down
Another shattered soul
In the lost and found
One more night
On the street of pain
Getting washed away by the Harlem rain

On desperation avenue
The devil takes his toll
Where the pushers and the poverty
Slowly claim your soul
When you reached the realization
That you just can't break the chain, no
You're vanishing, vanishing gone
In the Harlem rain

Chorus

In your search for tender mercy
No one seemed to care
The faith that used to be your crutch
Is now your cross to bear
You last yourself so long ago
You don't know who to blame
You're vanishing, vanishing gone
Vanishing, vanishing gone
Vanishing, vanishing gone
In the Harlem rain
 

WHO I AM
Sambora, Frederiksen

Only child
Lonely one
Trying to act like his father's son
Make him proud through he sometimes fails
Locked up, living in a jail

Help me now
Help me now
God I feel misunderstood
Trust me now
Trust me now
Who I am is good

Who I used to be ain't what I am
If you walked inside my shoes
Then you would understand
Who I am - you wonder
Who I am - I wonder
Who I am
Just who I am.

When I lost is when I learned
When the road took a crooked turn
Wore that face of I just don't care
That piece of me just disappeared

Help me now
Help me now
Find some hope inside myself
Reaching down
Finding out

Who's hiding in this shell.
Who I used to be ain't what I am
If you walked inside my shoes
Then you would understand
Who I am - I wonder
Who I am - I wonder
Who I am
Who I am

Somehow I got to find a mirror
To make the stranger clearer
All I wanna be is who I am
Reaching down
Finding out
I still feel misunderstood
Trust me now
Trust me now
Who I am is good

Who I used to be ain't what I am
If you walked inside my shoes
Then you would understand
Who I am - you wonder
Who I am - I wonder
Who I am
It's who I am.
Who I am
Who I am
Who I am
 

DOWNSIDE OF LOVE
Sambora, Bryan, Supa

There's a danger of getting so close to you
There comes a time
When the walls fade away
And when love turns to bitter blue

Sometimes it feels like it's so hard to stay
Last night we went to bed angry
We didn't mean what we said
Seems we never get past forgiveness

We try to hide, we never learn
To swallow our pride.
On the down side of love
Where the love turns to hate
We just can't relate
On the down side of love

When you're misunderstood
'Cause when it hurts you
It hurts you so good

Baby life has no guarantee
Never knowing where love's gonna lead
Even through you're a part of me
We have to deal with our pain separately

Sometimes we both feel like victims
With no easy way out not, no, no
Somehow we stand by each other
When we're desperate, and drowning in
The shadows of doubt

On the down side of love
Where the love turns to hate
We just can't relate
On the down side of love
When you're misunderstood
'Cause when it hurts you
It hurts you so good.
The times we share the tenderness
Are the times that keep us alive

You get in my face, you rough me up
But baby you know
Can't hurt me 'nough, to give you up
And make me let go
Make me let got oh no, no.

When you're on the down side of love
Where the love turns to hare
We just can't relate
On the down side of love
When you're misunderstood
'Cause when it hurts you
It hurts you so good.
Downside of love

Love's just a long, long road baby
Yes there's a down side of love
Stand by my side baby
When you're on the downside of love
No, no, no
Downside of love
'Cause it's a long, long road baby
Downside of love
 

UNDISCOVERED SOUL
Sambora, Supa

She was standing at the station
Small town suitcase in her hand
There were dreams she found inside her
That no one cared to understand

She never talks about her childhood
So much past to leave behind
She's so scared to go
But still she says goodbye

Chorus:
When you walk that road
You walk alone
Just an undiscovered soul
In the great unknown
When you only hope
Is to find a home
Just an undiscovered soul
In the great unknown
In the great unknown

Born and raised in poverty
Daddy died when he was young
All the fears that raged inside him
His spirit need to overcome

Each day he tears down the reflection
Of who he used to be
And with a little luck
He'll rise eventually

Chorus

In the search of our salvation
Relentlessly we climb
Just looking for a reason
In creation's grand design

If patience is a virtue
Then let us humbly begin
We'll be here waiting
'Til our ship comes sailing in.

Chorus

Don't want to walk through life
An undiscovered soul.
Searching for the road
Looking for a home
In the great unknown

Don't want to walk through life
An undiscovered soul
Searching for a home
Looking for a road
In the great unknown
Don't want to walk through life
An undiscovered soul
Patience, virtue, identify, soul
