"Born and Raised on "Rock and Roll"

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

 

I was born here in the midwest

Where we coined the phrase that they still call "Rock and Roll"

Those rainy old days and cold winter nights

Could never stop the backbeat in my soul

And every time they told me

That it was only the fool

Who would waste their life in a backstage dive

For a good time and a tune I'd say.....

I was Born and Raised on Rock and Roll

I learned to sing off the radio

When your Born and Raised on Rock and Roll

You play it loud from the heart and soul

Well I really never made much money

But I sure learned a lot about life playing Rock and Roll

'Cause I drove a million miles and copped a lot of styles

Playing one night stands 'til I couldnt get it up anymore

And every day I wonder

What it means to be secure

Do you think I'll ever find out

What the rest of my life means for sure?

 

 

 

"Somewhere" out in the Night

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

 

Walking alone

Down an old city road

I was lonely

Shadows of time

That the world left behind

Seemed to be fading

As I look to the wind for comfort

She whispered to me these words of hope

She said.....

Somewhere out in the night

Love is gonna' find me

Somewhere out in the night

Love is gonna' find me yeah

Full moon on the rise

Of a New York skyline

Keeps me wondering

Silhouettes in my mind

Of a dream left behind

Never leave

And as I look to the wind for comfort

She whispers to me these words of hope

And she said....

Somewhere out in the night

Love is gonna' find me

Somewhere out in the night

Love is gonna' find me yeah....

 

 

 

"Find the Way Back"

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

 

Whenever you feel down

And you find you need someone to talk to

You know where I'll be found

I'll be standing here

Waiting for you girl to....

Find the way back to my heart

Whenever you need someone to talk to

Find the way back to my heart

Whenever you need someone to hold you

You know I tried so hard

To give you my love

But I don't regret it

And one day your gonna' find

That are love would have grown

If you would have only let it

Find the way back to my heart

Whenever you need someone to talk to

Find the way back to my heart

Whenever you need someone to hold you

Whenever you feel down

and your whole world seems

Like you were forgotten

You know I'm gonna' come around

And take you back home

To the place where we started

Just find your way back to my heart

Whenever you need someone to talk to

Find your way back to my heart

Whenever you ne someone to hold you

 

 

 

 

"Jane"

(Dedicated to P.D. Columnist "Jane Scott")

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

 

Dear Jane

It's an early cold Friday morning

And my radio is blasting down the hall

Waking me up to the sounds

Of the late great Marvin Gaye

I fell out of bed

Got dressed and read the morning paper

I saw a picture of myself on the back page news

Next to an add for the final shows of Michael's band

Jane, Jane you watched me change from a boy to a man

Jane you stood behind me and the boys in the band

Don't you ever give up on us Jane

You know Jane I was 5 back in 64

When you started at Friday magazine

There wasn't a flash in the pan that you missed

Or a style un-seen

But than the papers read

Jane they say you're too old for the new style

But you never mix art and age as one

'Cause the older you get the better you shine in the public's eye

Jane, Jane you watched me change from a boy to a man

Jane you stood behind me and the boys in the band

Don't you ever give up on us Jane

Jane they always try to cut you down to pieces

To criticize your work is a slap in the face of justice

You broke so many bands that came from foreign lands

and now they try to take away the pen that wrote their names

 

 

 

"Sweet Rachel"

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

 

Rachel

What do I do now

You got me going

But I can't seem to find out what to do

"Cause I'm a man that finds himself giving all that I can

But then you tell me time will bring us closer at hand

Sweet Rachel

When am I gonna' find out

That the world is not always what I want it to be

Sweet Rachel

When are you gonna' find out

That life will always be harder for me

When I was younger

I could run all around

But now I'm older

And dreams seem to settle down

I've got so much love living down inside of my soul

But I'm afraid my heart can't pay another lonely toll

Sweet Rachel

When am I gonna' find out

That the world is not always what I want it to be

Sweet Rachel

When are you gonna' find out

That life will always be harder for me

 

 

 

"Uptown L.A."

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

Tell the preacher Sunday morning I'll be on my way

I'll be heading for the west towards Sunset in Uptown L.A.

Lord it's hard to find a job when you want it all

Got to keep my head up high gonna' pray for it all

In Uptown L.A.

Uptown L.A.

They tell me that the girls are the best in the world in L.A.

To have a house up in the hills or to be a big shot movie star in a limousine

When the Sunset's down on Vine and a billboard fills the sky with my name

I'll be thinking about the years when I couldn't even get the time of day

In Uptown L.A.

Uptown L.A.

 

 

 

"Still in my Heart"

 

(Dennis Lewin)

 

Every night I stay up late

Thinking of you until the morning light

And those crazy nights all those crazy nights

And every day "As Time Goes By"(as in the 40's song)

Were living our lives like Jay Gatsby's way

And the music played on and on and on

And you know you're

Still in my Heart

Your Still in my Soul

You're still all the world to this lonely fool

You're Still in my Heart

You're Still in my Soul

You're still all the world to this lonely fool

Midnight hours away

My carriage is drawn to the evening play

Where we danced our lives danced our lives away

And you know you're

Still in my Heart

You're Still in my Soul

You're Still all the world to this lonely fool
