rip it out
ace frehley, larry kelly, sue kelly

now i know, you've been cheatin' and lyin' all the time
i didn't know you were gonna be so unkind
i've been trying just to find out how we went wrong
but i know that i can't trust you girl anymore
rip it out, take my heart, you wanted it from the start
you got it now, so goodbye, so rip it out, watch me cry
it's so sad, i'm not glad to be with you today
and it's bad, 'cos i can't stop the pain day by day
if i knew how to stop you, i don't think i'd try
i think it's better if we just part and don't say goodbye
rip it out, take my heart, you wanted it from the start
you got it now, so goodbye, so rip it out, watch me cry
i hope you suffer!
rip it out, take my heart, you wanted it from the start
you got it now, so goodbye, so rip it out, watch me cry
rip it out, take my heart, you wanted it from the start
you got it now, so goodbye, so rip it out, watch me cry

speedin' back to my baby
ace frehley, jeanette frehley

i'm drivin' down the road, doin' 95 miles per hour, oh yeah
my radio's blastin' and i'm passin' cars faster and faster, aha
i'm feelin' kinda down 'cos i left her with a frown, my baby, oh yeah
we always seem to fight when things are goin' right and maybe, aha
maybe i should turn around, maybe i should stop,
maybe i should turn around
speedin' back to my baby, and i don't mean maybe
speedin' back to my baby, and i don't mean maybe
you know, maybe i should turn around, maybe i should stop
maybe i should turn around
i'm lookin' for a station,
'cos there's no acceleration to get back, oh yeah
my gauge is showin' red and my battery's dead,
i'd better find one fast
the whole thing began 'cos i saw her with a man, my baby, oh yeah
i really wouldn't mind,
but you know i've got my pride to think of, aha
maybe i should turn around, maybe i should stop,
maybe i should turn around
speedin' back to my baby, and i don't mean maybe
speedin' back to my baby, and i don't mean maybe
i found me a station, now i got acceleration to get back, oh yeah
she's my only girl and to me she's just the world, so maybe, aha
maybe i should turn around, maybe i should stop,
maybe i should turn around
speedin' back to my baby, and i don't mean maybe
speedin' back to my baby, and i don't mean maybe

snow blind
ace frehley

it's so hard to feel right baby
when i'm travelin' around and you're far behind
god, i wish i could see my lady, girl, i hope you don't mind, 'cos
i'm snowblind, i can't see a thing,
i'm snowblind, i don't wanna sing
i'm snowblind, need a familiar face,
i'm snowblind, think i'm lost in space
lookin' out my window, sometimes i wonder
am i ever gonna get to where i'm gonna go home
maybe tomorrow, maybe next summer, girl, i just don't know, 'cos
i'm snowblind, i can't see a thing,
i'm snowblind, i don't wanna sing
i'm snowblind, need a familiar face,
i'm snowblind, think i'm lost in space
movin' around, i get in trouble,
when i'm feelin' so low and out of my mind
babe, i don't wanna burst your bubble, girl,
you know the reason why, 'cos
i'm snowblind, i can't see a thing,
i'm snowblind, i don't wanna sing
i'm snowblind, need a familiar face,
i'm snowblind, think i'm lost in space

ozone
ace frehley

i'm the kind of guy who likes feelin' high

i'm your kinda guy, girl i'm not too shy
and i want you to fly, so i think you oughta try
ozone, ozone, ozone, ozone
i'm your kinda guy and i'm not too shy
feelin' high and dry, and i want you to be mine
so i think it's time, girl, to start feeling fine
feeling good all the time, so i think you oughta try
ozone, ozone, ozone, ozone
now i'm the kinda guy who likes getting high

and i'm feelin' fine, i'm feelin' good all of the time...

what's on your mind?
ace frehley

you're breakin' my heart, i'm fallin' apart,
you make me crazy, crazy
you're breakin' my heart,
i don't wanna start a new day, new day
i'm wreckin' my brain, i'm feelin' insane,
you make me crazy, crazy
i'm changin' my ways,
i'm leavin' today, but things look hazy, hazy
i can't express the words to tell you 'bout the feelings i got,
locked up inside
if only you would give me a reason why you're so uptight,
what's on your mind?
maybe we could make it one more time,
maybe we should try it again
maybe we could make it one more time,
baby please let me know when
you're breakin' my heart, i'm fallin' apart,
you make me crazy, crazy
you're breakin' my heart, i'm spinnin' apart,
i'm lookin' this and that way
i can't express the words to tell you 'bout the feelings i got,
locked up inside
if only you would give me a reason why you're so uptight,
what's on your mind?
what's on your mind, what's on your mind,
what's on your mind - tell me
maybe we could make it one more time,
maybe we should try it again
maybe we could make it one more time,
baby please let me know when
i can't express the words to tell you 'bout the feelings i got,
locked up inside
if only you would give me a reason why you're so uptight,
what's on your mind?
i can't express the words to tell you 'bout the feelings i got,
locked up inside
if only you would give me a reason why you're so uptight,
what's on your mind?
i can't express the words to tell you 'bout the feelings i got,
locked up inside
if only you would give me a reason why you're so uptight,
what's on your mind?

new york groove
russ ballard

many years since i was here, on the street i was passin' my time away
to the left and to the right, buildings towering to the sky
it's outta sight in the dead of night
here i am, and in this city, with a fistful of dollars
and baby, you'd better believe
i'm back, back in the new york groove
i'm back, back in the new york groove
i'm back, back in the new york groove
back in the new york groove, in the new york groove
in the back of my cadillac
a wicked lady, sittin' by my side, sayin' 'where are we?'
stop at third and forty-three, exit to the night
it's gonna be ecstacy, this place was meant for me
feels so good tonight, who cares about tomorrow
so baby, you'd better believe
i'm back, back in the new york groove
i'm back, back in the new york groove
i'm back, back in the new york groove
back in the new york groove, in the new york groove
i'm back, back in the new york groove

i'm in need of love
ace frehley

i need some love, so give me some
you know i want some love, so turn me on
sometimes i feel so low, sometimes i feel i'm on top, you know
now girl i hate to start, 'cos then you gonna stop
i'm in need of love, i'm in need of love, i'm in need of love
and i'm hopin' you're in need of me
now i want some love, so give me some
you know i need some love, so turn me on
it's just that devil in me that keeps on comin' thru - all the time
when things start lookin' good, some things start lookin' blue
i'm in need of love, i'm in need of love, i'm in need of love
and i'm hopin' you're in need of me
now i want some love, so give me some
you know i need some love, so turn me on
things keep on turning 'round, when things should be sittin' straight
- now turn around
girl it's not my fault, i guess it's just my fate - you know me
'cos all i want is love, so turn me on - you've got to
and all i need is love, so give me some - just a little
'cos all i want is love, so turn me on - one more time
all i need is love, so give me some - ooh yeah do it like that
'cos all i want is love, so turn me on - and on and on
all i need is love...

wiped out
ace frehley, anton fig

wiped out!
i went to a party, just so smartly, cool as cool could be
i knew i could make it, knew i could shake it, lose some fancy free
so i went to the table and reached for a bottle
and poured me a glass of wine
took a few sips and looked around, i was feelin' fine
but an hour along, comin' on strong, i was gettin' drunk
the next thing i knew i looked at you, i was blind as a skunk, i was
i was wiped out, i had my lights out
was fallin' right out, 'cos i was wiped out
through the smoke-filled room i caught your eye
and i think that you caught mine
and i knew in a minute or maybe less,
it was just a matter of time
then you started to move with such a groove,
stronger than sneakin' slow
then you looked at me with your big blue eyes,
they had such a glow
then i took your hand and tried to stand
and ended up sittin' back down
then you smiled at me and gave me a wink,
how quick i lost my frown, i was
i was wiped out, i had my lights out
was fallin' right out, 'cos i was wiped out
so i looked at you and then i knew that we were gonna have some fun
so i thought to myself, why was i wishin' i'd switched on rum
so when i went light 'n burned, we flew to another place
i pretty soon we were in some moon steps, miles out of space
the room was turnin', we were burnin', things became a haze
it seemed that already i had too many,
firewater caused the blaze, i was
i was wiped out, i had my lights out
was fallin' right out, 'cos i was wiped out
