Gypsy, has eyes that hide the secrets no one sees
Easy, you smile until she brings you to your knees
Stick around 'til you get the truth
Taste blood when you get your proof (oh yeah)
Find that you've never understood
Give it all, but it's meant for good (oh yeah)

And I know this life makes fools of wise men, thieves, and kings (yeah)
When we lose we live our lives like puppets on a string
Close your eyes and you'll lose your soul
Do your time, but there's no parole from here
No chance when the end is near
Hear the words that you never thought you'd hear (yeah)
Life whispers in your ear

[Chorus]
It's a long way down
When ground starts comin'
I tried to tell you, but you would not listen
It's a long way when you fall from the top

Yeah!

[Guitar Solo]

Build it all on a bed of lies
Standing tall 'til you realize you're here
Look away, but you can't pretend
Gonna pray for a way when the end is near
Life whispers in your ear

It's a long way down
When the ground starts comin'
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way
Such a long, long way
It's a long way down
When the ground starts comin'
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way
Such a long, long way
A long way down
A long way down
When you fall from the top

All For The Love of Rock & Roll
(Paul Stanley)

Yeah, yeah
Mmmmmm
Whoo

[Verse]
I was just another child going wild in the city
Just gettin' by on a dream
I was thinking life was gonna be so pretty,
It was pretty mean
Yeah

I hit the road with no expectations
Just leaving where I'd been
I didn't care about the fame or the money
Show me a place to play and I'm gonna go

[Chorus]
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll
Hear my music in the air, and I'm losing control
I don't care what you heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll

[Verse]
I hitched a ride on a trip going nowhere
Got fifty bucks and I'm fine.
Ain't a lot of dough but when you know the feeling.
Well it feels alright, alright

When you're finished with the band and some honey grabs your hand, yeah
You get to thinking you might
That's when you notice there's a ring on her finger
That's when she tells you that she's single tonight

[Chorus]
Well it's all for the love of rock and roll
Hear my music in the air, and I'm losing control
I don't care what you heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll

I've got it made when I hit the stage at quarter to nine (yeah)
Watch them dancin' in the haze and the band's really pumping
You feel the rush and that's all it's about
I'm in for life and there's no getting out of the way

[Guitar Solo]

Yeah
All I want...
All I need...

Yeah, 'cause it's all for the love of rock and roll
Hear my music in the air, and I'm losing control
I don't care what you heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll
All for my love of rock and roll...
