A review of Comeblack by Allmusic rated the album three out of five stars, noting that the re-recorded songs sounded “bigger than their ’80s counterparts,” and saying that among the covers, “Children of the Revolution” and “Tainted Love” stood out.[6]

Lyrics

1. Rhythm of Love

Let’s spend the night together
I know you want it too
The magic of the moment
Is what I’ve got for you

The heartbeat of this night is made to lose control
And there is something in your eyes that’s longing for some more
Let us find together the beat we’re looking for

The rhythm of love keeps me dancing on the road
The rhythm of love, I’ve got the groove that hits the bone
The rhythm of love is the game I’m looking for
The rhythm of love is the heartbeat of my soul

Let’s reach the top together
One night will never do
An exploding shot of pleasure
Is what I’ve got for you

Why don’t you close your eyes, let your feeling grow?
I make you feel the taste of life until your love will flow
Let us find together the beat we’re longing for

The rhythm of love keeps me dancing on the road
The rhythm of love, I’ve got the groove that hits the bone
The rhythm of love is the game I’m looking for
The rhythm of love is the heartbeat of my soul

The rhythm of love keeps me dancing on the road
The rhythm of love, got the groove that hits the bone
The rhythm of love is the game I’m looking for
The rhythm of love is the heartbeat of my soul

The rhythm of love keeps me dancing on the road
The rhythm of love, got the groove that hits the bone
The rhythm of love is the game I’m looking for
The rhythm of love is the heartbeat of my soul

Let us find together the beat we’re looking for

2. No One Like You

Girl, it’s been a long time that we’ve been apart
Much too long for a man who needs love, I miss you since I’ve been away
Babe, wasn’t easy to leave you alone
It’s getting harder each time that I go, if I had the choice, I would stay

There’s no one like you, I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do, I just wanna be loved by you
No one like you, I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do, I just wanna be loved by you

Girl, there are really no words strong enough
To describe all my longing for love, I don’t want my feelings restrained
Ooh, babe, I just need you like never before
Just imagine, come through this door, you take all my sorrow away

There’s no one like you, I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do, I just wanna be loved by you
No one like you, I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do, I just wanna be loved by you

No one like you, I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do, I just wanna be loved by you
No one like you, I can’t wait for the nights with you
I imagine the things we’ll do, I just wanna be loved by you

3. The Zoo

The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, she’s dressed to kill
But all we gonna do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd street
You wanna be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

4. Rock You Like a Hurricane

It’s early morning
The sun comes out
Last night was shaking
And pretty loud
My cat is purring
And scratches my skin
So what is wrong
With another sin
The bitch is hungry
She needs to tell
So give her inches
And feed her well
More days to come
New places to go
I’ve got to leave
It’s time for a show

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

My body is burning
It starts to shout
Desire is coming
It breaks out loud
Lust is in cages
Till storm breaks loose
Just have to make it
With someone I choose
The night is calling
I have to go
The wolf is hungry
He runs to show
He’s licking his lips
He’s ready to win
On the hunt tonight
For love at first sting

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

5. Blackout

I realize I missed a day
But I’m too wrecked to care anyway
I look around and see this face
What the hell have I lost my taste
Don’t want to find out
Just want to cut out

My head explodes, my ears ring
I can’t remember just where I’ve been
The last thing that I recall
I got lost in a deep black hole
Don’t want to find out
Just want to cut out

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Blackout
I really had a blackout

I grab my things and make my run
On the way out, another one
Would like to know before I stop
Did I make it or did I flop
Don’t want to find out
Just want to get out

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Blackout
I really had a blackout

Don’t want to find out
Just want to get out

Blackout
I really had a blackout!

6. Still Loving You

Time, it needs time to win back your love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, only love can bring back your love someday
I will be there, I will be there

Fight, babe, I’ll fight to win back your love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, only love can bring down the wall someday
I will be there, I will be there

If we go again all the way from the start
I would try to change the things that killed our love
Your pride has built a wall, so strong that I can’t get through
Is there really no chance to start once again? I’m loving you

Try, baby, try to trust in my love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, our love just shouldn’t be thrown away
I will be there, I will be there

If we’d go again, all the way from the start
I would try to change the things that killed our love
Your pride has built a wall, so strong that I can’t get through
Is there really no chance to start once again?

If we’d go again, all the way from the start
I would try to change the things that killed our love
Yes, I’ve hurt your pride, and I know what you’ve been through
You should give me a chance, this can’t be the end

I’m still loving you
I’m still loving you
I’m still loving you
I need your love
I’m still loving you
Still loving you, baby

Still loving you
I need your love
I’m still loving you
I need your love

I’m still loving you
I need your love
I need your love

7. Wind of Change

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future’s in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change.

8. Tainted Love (Gloria Jones cover)

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to
Run away I’ve got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I’ve lost my light
For I toss and turn I can’t sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I’ll run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Oh…tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I’ve got to
Run away I’ve got to
Get away
You don’t really want IT any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you’LL think love is to pray
But I’m sorry I don’t pray that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I’ll run from you
This tainted love you’ve given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that’s not nearly all
Oh…tainted love
Tainted love

Don’t touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I’m going to pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love

9. Children of the Revolution (T. Rex cover)

Well you can bump and grind
It is good for your mind
Well you can twist and shout let it all hang out
But you won’t fool the children of the revolution
No you won’t fool the children of the revolution, no no no

Well you can tear a plane in the falling rain
I drive a rolls royce ‘cos it’s good for my voice
But you won’t fool the children of the revolution
No you won’t fool the children of the revolution, no no no – yeah!

But you won’t fool the children of the revolution
No you won’t fool the children of the revolution
No you won’t fool the children of the revolution
No you won’t fool the children of the revolution

10. Across the Universe (The Beatles cover)

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Jai guru deva, om
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
They call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe
Jai guru deva, om,
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.

Sounds of laughter shades of life are ringing
Through my opened ears inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying Love which shines around me like a
million suns, and calls me on and on
Across the universe
Jai guru deva, om,
Nothing’s gonna change my world,
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.

Jai guru deva
Jai guru deva
Jai guru deva
Jai guru deva

11. Tin Soldier (Small Faces cover)

I’m a little tin soldier
that wants to jump into your fire
you are a look in your eye
a dream passing by in the sky
I don’t understand
all I need is treat me like a man
’cause I ain’t no child
take me like I am
I got to know that I belong to you
do anything that you want to do
sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
I don’t need no aggravation
I just got to make you
I just got to make you my occupation
I got to know that I belong to you
do anything that you want to do
sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
All I need is your whispered hello
smiles melting the snow
nothing heard
you eyes are deeper than time
say a love that won’t rhyme without words
so now I’ve lost my way
I need help to show me things to say
give me your love before mine fades away
I got to know that I belong to you
do anything that you want to do
sing any so song that you want me to sing to you
oh no no
I just want some reaction
someone to give me satisfaction
all I want to do is stick with you ,’cause I love you

12. All Day and All of the Night (The Kinks cover)

I’m not content to be with you in the daytime
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night

I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and night-time yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
Oh, get ’em on

I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and night-time yours, leave me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night

13. Ruby Tuesday (The Rolling Stones cover)

Bm A G D
She would never say where she came from
Bm A G A
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
Bm E A
While the sun is bright
Bm E A
Or in the darkest night
D
No one knows

She comes and goes

D A G D
Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
D A G D
Who could hang a name on you?
D A G
When you change with every new day
A A-D
Still I’m gonna miss you…

Don’t question why she needs to be so free
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
She just can’t be chained
To a life where nothing’s gained
And nothing’s lost
At such a cost

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you may lose your mind.
Ain’t life unkind?

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…
