Dio - Rock 'N' Roll Children (Live) Lyrics




Rock and roll

It was starting to rain
On the night that they first decided
It was blinding with snow
On the night that they ran away
They were found in the dark
But they never returned
Just like somebody slammed the door – bang!

She was meant to be wild
He was nearly a child
But they only could feel each other
They were paper and fire
Angel and liar
The devil of one another

Then they were thrown to the ground
With a terrible sound
Just like somebody slammed a heart

Rock 'N' Roll Children
Alone again
Rock 'N' Roll Children
Without a friend
But you got Rock 'N' Roll

You got Rock and Roll

All right, Rock And Roll

At the end of a dream
If you know what I mean
When the mist just starts to clear
In a similar way
At the end of the day
I can feel the sound of writing on the wall
It cries for you
It’s the least that you can do
Like a spiral that’s on the wind
I can hear it screaming in the air

Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll
Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll
Yes, Rock ‘n’ Roll

Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll
Long live Rock and Roll
Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll

I'm a wheel, a wheel
I can roll, I can feel
And you can't stop me turning
I'm the sun, the sun
I can move, I can run
You'll never stop me burning

Get down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again

I'm the man on the silver mountain
The man on the silver mountain

Get down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me, make me holy again

The man on the silver mountain
The man on the silver mountain
In the man on the mountain
The man on the silver mountain

Well, I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
I’ll give my hand, I’ll give you my hand
Give you my hand, I’ll give you my hand, I’ll give you my hand
And for you; here’s my hand
Together we will fly, together we’ll fly, we’ll fly, fly, fly
Just you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I, you and I
We’ll go way.... to the mountain
You’re the man, you’re the man, you’re all the man
We’re all, we’re all, we’re all, we’re all the man

It was starting to rain
On the night that they cried forever
It was blinding with snow
On the night that they screamed goodbye
They were lost in the dark
And they never returned
Just like somebody slammed the door – bang!

Alone again
Rock 'N' Roll Children
Without a friend

It was starting to rain
On the night that they met
It was blinding with snow
On the night we let them go, go, go, go
Rock 'N' Roll Children
Alone again
Rock 'N' Roll Children
Without a friend
But you got Rock ‘n’ Roll

Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll
Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll
Long live Rock ‘n’ Roll

  4. goddingdc91

    This sounds just like shot in the dark...

    74 torino

    goddingdc91 this came first

  5. SilverTounge85

    Such a great quality on this concert. This is how you remaster a concert video from the 80s. Ozzy, Judas Priest etc. should learn from this.

  6. jeff ratz

    Brilliant.needs more drums.u cant hav too many like geetarz

  7. Mark Birchette

    Wow, Only Vinnie and Craig are still alive. And early in the Sacred Heart Tour Vivian was out. I have front row pictures from the Salt Palace Arena in S.L.C. Utah and Vivian is on guitar. Rest Easy Ronnie, Jimmy and Claude, Rest Free. For you are now where one day we'll all be. Thy load now light, thy task now done. Thy battles with dragons won. Rest Easy Ronnie, Jimmy and Claude. Rest Free. \m/\m/✌from Utah.

  15. A fera interior

    love this guy ...simple and amazing

  16. A fera interior

    The Singer !

  17. cosmic-raider

    Immensità a pacchi.

  18. Julio Ocasio Albino

    DIO is a god and his band was awesome

  19. DANIEL MARTINEZ

    Waoo grande dio

  20. Sajjad Valipour

    DIO is great as all of his songs. Greetings from Iran - Tabriz. Intereseting thing is that he was singing from 1957 onwards !! when he was only 15yrs old!

  21. Cassio Moura

    O maior da história do rock

  22. Свято Гор

    My God! What kind of nonsense is cheap! And as soon as I could listen to this surrogate before?

    74 torino

    Goh Hought fukin language is that ??

  23. Michael Holmgaard

    Craig Goldy was fanatstic ;)

    Josh Armoogam

    Not as good as Vivian Campbell.

    Michael Holmgaard

    @Josh Armoogam Vivian was a true visionary on the guitar, but I don't think he was much better than Craig. In fact, I think Craig is much better when ti comes to technique and precision, while Vivian had the melodies and riffs. I just think a lot of people forget to really listen to Craig's playing, because they only care for Vivian's work. But Craig was among the best guitarists of his time, no doubt there.

    Josh Armoogam

    @Fenny Helgi He was good, but it's obvious that when Vivian was with Dio he created some better albums. I'm pretty sure Holy Diver, Last In Line, and even Sacred Heart all did a better job than Dream Evil. Both good., I won't deny that though.

    Michael Holmgaard

    @Josh Armoogam Vivian was a much bigger asset when ti came to the songwriting, for sure. Ronnie & Vivian were partners in crime, Ronnie said it himself, and it was clear that Viv kinda knew what Dio wanted.

    Strato Caster

    Not nearly good as Vivian.

  24. HQ HD calidad

    dio , uno de los mejores temas ...............ronnie

    seba torres

    Abel Gut dio siempre tuvo muy buenos músicos acompañado

  25. Kelly d

    you haven't heard Ozzy with Randy,or his other guitarists, not the same

  26. Kelly d

    our generation was the rock' n roll children. We had real rock icons that kind of raised us. But this generation that misses out.

    Ray

    Well, they can still use the same rock icons. ;) Many of them still record and tour and yes, it's not the same as back then, but the great thing about music is that its age doesn't matter.

    Justice Productions

    We don’t just have your icons but we also have Great Van Fleet, Ghost, Steel Panther, and so many more lesser known Rock and Metal bands, just do some digging

    ecovention

    They got Justin B

    Urdnot Wrex

    Dio will live forever in rock and roll

    Mrbignutzful

    @Justice Productions5  meh....they are Mock bands not ROCK bands !

  27. bassman0704

    Stupid cancer you took one of the most amazing human beings ever from us. RIP Ronnie \m/

    Mikhail Volochaev

    +bassman0704, untill people listen to his records, he is alive.

    Urdnot Wrex

    Don't be sad, he awaits us all on the Silver Mountain.

  28. Ron Rushford

    That is one dead ass crowd.

  29. Lavandina Querubín

    Shot in the dark?

    MusicManFreak

    You're right. Ozzy ripped off Dio's song.
