"Pure Rock" is a whirlwind tour through rock and roll history. Each song has a distinct sound with influences ranging from the Beatles and Steve Miller to more modern rockers like Nirvana, right up through to contemporary rock of today. Where tracks like "Lost Man In Los Angeles" are dominated by distorted guitars and crashing drums, others like "She's Cool" offer an acoustic rock sound with melodic vocal lines and smooth chord progressions.

1. BURNING MAN

(VERSE)
MY LIFE WAS MADE OF ICE
DISTILLED FROM MY OWN TEARS
I PAID A HEAVY PRICE
I CALL THE FROZEN YEARS
BEFORE I FOUND YOUR LOVE
COLDNESS WAS ALL I FELT
IN THE HEAT OF YOUR KISS
THE FROST BEGAN TO MELT

MY HEART'S ON FIRE

(CHORUS)
I'M A BURNIN' MAN
YOU IGNITE MY FLAME
LOVE SO INTENSE
THAT WE PUT THE SUN TO SHAME
I'M A BURNING MAN
AND I'M BURNIN' FOR YOU

(VERSE)
I NEVER QUESTION HOW
I'M GRATEFUL DAY AND NIGHT
THAT YOU ARE HERE AND NOW
MY HEART IS BURNING BRIGHT
THIS LOVE'S A RAGING FIRE
UNRIVALED BY THE SUN
NOWHERE TO GO BUT HIGHER
OUR LIFE HAS JUST BEGUN

MY HEART'S ON FIRE

(CHORUS)
I'M A BURNIN' MAN
YOU IGNITE MY FLAME
LOVE SO INTENSE
THAT WE PUT THE SUN TO SHAME
SINCE TIME BEGAN
THERE IS NO ONE WHO
EVER HAD MORE PASSION THAN
I HAVE FOR YOU
I'M A BURNIN' MAN
YOU IGNITE MY FLAME
LOVE SO INTENSE
THAT WE PUT THE SUN TO SHAME
I'M A BURNIN' MAN
AND I'M BURNIN' FOR YOU

(BRIDGE)
I WILL BRING YOU HOME
I WILL WARM YOUR SOUL
'TIL THE END OF TIME
WE WILL BLAZE A TRAIL
WHERE ONLY LOVERS GO
WITH HEARTS INTERTWINED

(CHORUS)
I'M A BURNIN' MAN
YOU IGNITE MY FLAME
LOVE SO INTENSE
THAT WE PUT THE SUN TO SHAME
SINCE TIME BEGAN
THERE IS NO ONE WHO
EVER HAD MORE PASSION THAN
I HAVE FOR YOU
I'M A BURNIN' MAN
AND I'M BURNIN' FOR YOU

2. LAYIN' LOVE ON THE LINE

(VERSE)
I SWEAR TO GO PAST THE LIMIT
WHERE DEEP INSIDE YOUR SOUL
HIDES THE LOVE YOU CHOOSE TO WITHOLD
OH YEAH YOU KNOW
I DARE TO SHOW YOU MY LOVE
THE LOVE THAT YOU CANNOT HOLD

(B SECTION)
YOU SHOULD TRY THE TRUTH NOW
CAUSE IT'S IN YOU SOMEWHERE
OR DID YOU LIE SO LONG YOU CAN'T GET THERE

(CHORUS)
I WON'T WALK ON THE CLOUDS NEXT TIME
I'LL PROTECT THIS HEART OF MINE
BUT I'VE GOT NO REGRETS
BECAUSE I TAKE A RISK
LAYIN' LOVE ON THE LINE

(VERSE)
I'LL ALWAYS BE NEAR TO HELP YOU GIRL
BUT I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU FOREVER
YOU LOST YOUR CHANCE IN MY WORLD

(B SECTION)
YOU SHOULD TRY THE TRUTH NOW
CAUSE IT'S IN YOU SOMEWHERE
OR DID YOU LIE SO LONG YOU CAN'T GET THERE

(CHORUS)
I WON'T WALK ON THE CLOUDS NEXT TIME
I'LL PROTECT THIS HEART OF MINE
BUT I'VE GOT NO REGRETS
BECAUSE I TAKE A RISK
LAYIN' LOVE ON THE LINE

(BRIDGE)
HOW MANY LIES DOES IT TAKE FROM YOU
UNTIL YOU SEE THE TRUTH
THAT WE'RE REALLY OVER

(CHORUS)
I WON'T WALK ON THE CLOUDS NEXT TIME
I'LL PROTECT THIS HEART OF MINE
BUT I'VE GOT NO REGRETS
BECAUSE I TAKE A RISK
LAYIN' LOVE ON THE LINE

3. LOST MAN IN LOS ANGELES

(VERSE)
I HAVE THIS FRIEND WHO WHEN IT RAINS
HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THE BRAINS TO COME IN FROM IT
IT'S FINE CAUSE THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES
WHERE HE LIVES ON THE BOULEVARD
OF BROKE AND DON'T GIVE A SHIT
I KNOW THIS GUY WHO GETS SO HIGH
HIS PASSION AND DESIRE
ARE TRAPPED INSIDE
IT'S OKAY OR SO HE'D SAY
CAUSE IN L.A. EVERYBODY'S FRIED

(CHORUS)
LOST MAN IN LOS ANGELES
HE CAN'T FIND HIS WAY
HE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP JUST TO HANDLE THIS
MAN LOST IN L.A.

(VERSE)
HE SEE'S HIS LIFE
FLASH BEFORE HIS EYES
BUT HE CAN'T RECOGNIZE
IF IT'S HIM IN IT
HE'D GLADLY COMPROMISE
AND LOSE THE OLD DISGUISE
IF THERE'S SOME SORT OF PRIZE
HE COULD WIN IN IT
BEHIND A SUN DRENCHED TAN
HIDES A FEARFUL FADING MAN
WHO'D DO ANYTHING HE CAN
NOT TO DO A THING
ONCE HE TRIED TO RUN AWAY
NOW HE'S CRYING FOR L.A.
HEAR HIM WHIMPERING

(CHORUS)
LOST MAN IN LOS ANGELES
HE CAN'T FIND HIS WAY
HE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP JUST TO HANDLE THIS
HE'D LIKE TO LEAVE BUT HE'D LOVE TO STAY
LOST MAN IN LOS ANGELES
CAN'T SEE THE ONE FREE WAY
ALL HE WANTS IS A LIFE THAT'S SCANDALOUS
WHERE'S THE PAPARAZZI WHEN YOU NEED THEM ANYWAY

(BRIDGE)
LIVE THE DREAM
INHALE THE HYPE
IF YOU THINK YOU'RE A MAN
GO TO THE TOP
WATCH FOR THE DROP
THEN THINK AGAIN
LIVE THE LIE
AND TOUCH THE SKY
THEN TAKE THE FALL
YOU'RE TEMPEST TOSSED
THE CHANCE IS LOST
YOU SQUANDERED IT ALL

(CHORUS)
LOST MAN IN LOS ANGELES
HE CAN'T FIND HIS WAY
HE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP JUST TO HANDLE THIS
HE'D LIKE TO LEAVE BUT HE'D LOVE TO STAY
LOST MAN IN LOS ANGELES
CAN'T SEE THE ONE FREE WAY
ALL HE WANTS IS A LIFE THAT'S SCANDALOUS
WHERE'S THE PAPARAZZI WHEN YOU NEED THEM ANYWAY

4. SHE'S COOL

(VERSE)
SHE'S THE KIND OF GIRL WHO WANTED JUST ONE THING
AND I FOUND OUT THAT JUST ONE THING WAS EVERYTHING
I GAVE IT ALL TO HER WHEN MY HEART WAS PURE
SHE LIED AND TOLD ME THAT'S WHAT LOVE WAS FOR
THEN SHE TOOK SOME MORE

(CHORUS)
SHE'S COOL
SHE CUT MY SOUL CLEAN THROUGH
IT'S WHAT SHE LIKES TO DO
AND I CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE HER SO

(VERSE)
SHE DIDN'T EVEN CRY THE DAY HER DADDY DIED
SHE SAID IT'S UNATTRACTIVE AND NOT DIGNIFIED
SHE'S AS COLD AS ICE
SHE STUCK IT RIGHT TO ME AND SHE DID IT WITH STYLE
MY HEART BLED DRY WHILE SHE CRACKED A SMILE
THEN SHE LAUGHED A WHILE

(CHORUS)
SHE'S COOL
SHE CUT MY SOUL CLEAN THROUGH
IT'S WHAT SHE LIKES TO DO
AND I CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE HER SO

(BRIDGE)
STARE INTO HER EYES AND SEE THE FLAMES FROM BURNING BRIDGES
THEN YOU REALIZE TOO LATE HER LOVE IS SACRELIGIOUS
HER BODY IS A PERFECT SHRINE HER LOVE IS LIKE A FEAST
SHE'LL ALWAYS LEAVE YOU HUNGRY IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST


(CHORUS)
SHE'S COOL
SHE CUT MY SOUL CLEAN THROUGH
IT'S WHAT SHE LIKES TO DO
SHE'S COOL
IT'S WHAT SHE LIKES TO DO
SHE'S COOL
SHE CUT MY SOUL CLEAN THROUGH
IT'S WHAT SHE LIKES TO DO

5. TAKE A RIDE IN MY CAR

(VERSE)
CAN I BUY YOU A DRINK
YOU LOOK LIKE A VIRGIN MARY
BABE IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK
WHY DON’T WE GET OUT OF HERE

(B-SECTION)
I GOT MY FORD GT PARKED OUT ON THE STREET
WITH JUST ENOUGH ROOM IN THE BACK SEAT
I KNOW YOU GIRL
CAUSE I KNOW YOU’RE GONNA
YOU KNOW YOU’RE GONNA

(CHORUS)
TAKE A RIDE IN MY CAR
WRAP-AROUND STEEL
WITH MUSIC FROM MY ENGINE
I WILL DRIVE YOU SO FAR
AND WHAT YOU REVEAL
I PROMISE NOT TO MENTION

(VERSE)
IF YOU CAN HANDLE THE SPEED
I CAN DRIVE YOU ALL NIGHT LONG
YOU MIGHT GET WHAT YOU NEED
BUT IN THE MORNING I’LL BE GONE

(B-SECTION)
I GOT MY FORD GT PARKED OUT ON THE STREET
WITH JUST ENOUGH ROOM IN THE BACK SEAT
I KNOW YOU GIRL
CAUSE I KNOW YOU’RE GONNA
YOU KNOW YOU’RE GONNA

(CHORUS)
TAKE A RIDE IN MY CAR
WRAP-AROUND STEAL
WITH MUSIC FROM MY ENGINE
I WILL DRIVE YOU SO FAR
AND WHAT YOU REVEAL
I PROMISE NOT TO MENTION

(BRIDGE)
SHIFTIN’ INTO GEAR
THE ROAD AHEAD IS CLEAR
PUMP IT UP TO OVERDRIVE
WE’RE PAST THE LIMIT HERE
THE RED LINE IS NEAR
GONNA MAKE YOU FEEL ALIVE

(CHORUS)
TAKE A RIDE IN MY CAR
WRAP-AROUND STEAL
WITH MUSIC FROM MY ENGINE
I WILL DRIVE YOU SO FAR
AND WHAT YOU REVEAL
I PROMISE NOT TO MENTION

6. WHEN

(VERSE)
ONE HUNDRED SEVENTEEN DAYS AND NIGHTS SINCE SHE'S BEEN GONE
EACH SECOND LONGER THAN THE LAST
IT'S TIME I GO OUTSIDE AND TURN MY LIGHT BACK ON
AND LEAVE THE FOREVER IN THE PAST
HOW LONG'S FOREVER SUPPOSED TO LAST

(CHORUS)
WHEN I SAW HER I ASKED IF SHE WAS HAPPY
SHE SMILED AND SAID THAT SHE WAS
THEN I ASKED HER WHEN WILL IT STOP HURTING
AND SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE'D LET ME KNOW WHEN IT DOES

(VERSE)
GET UP GET OUT GET REAL GET OVER HER
THAT'S WHAT I TELL MYSELF EACH DAY
I ONCE WAS FOUND BUT NOW I'M LOST
IT'S ALL A BLUR
ALONE IT'S HARD TO FIND MY WAY
ALONE WITH NOTHING LEFT TO SAY

(CHORUS)
WHEN I SAW HER I ASKED IF SHE WAS HAPPY
SHE SMILED AND SAID THAT SHE WAS
THEN I ASKED HER WHEN WILL IT STOP HURTING
AND SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE'D LET ME KNOW WHEN IT DOES

(BRIDGE)
SOMETIMES THIS FRIENDLESS TOWN'S AN ENDLESS ONE WAY STREET
IT'S HARD TO MAKE THE LONG WALK HOME
I THINK I SEE HER FACE IN EVERYONE I MEET
I CAN'T FORGET THE LOVE I'VE KNOWN

(CHORUS)
WHEN I SAW HER I ASKED IF SHE WAS HAPPY
SHE SMILED AND SAID THAT SHE WAS
THEN I ASKED HER WHEN WILL IT STOP HURTING
AND SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE'D LET ME KNOW WHEN IT DOES
