Rob Mancini Dublin, Ireland

There is an old legend that the phoenix will rise from the ashes when the time is right for its return and that time is now. The true sound of the late 80s early 90s melodic rock sound is coming back with a vengeance and at the forefront of this is Rob Mancini’s Rock‘n’Roll Circus. The classic rock sound infused with Mancini’s twist delivers a clean crisp masterpiece of rock goodness ... more

Track Name: Rock'n'Roll Circus
Rock’n’Roll Circus is in town tonight
Welcome to the party hope you do enjoy the ride
Take your (to) hell an’ back ticket, we’re gonna start a fight
Singin hi-di-hi-di-ho, we gonna rock tonight

There is one for the money and two for the show
We couldn’t give a shit who else is on the go
in the club down the street or the bar next door
Rock’n’Roll tonight an’a bit o’ Hi-di-hi-di-ho

One, two, three, four, screaming in the night
Clowns to the left and jokers to the right
You gotta raise your fist (Hey) don’t think twice
Hi-di-hi-di-ho, we gonna rock tonight

Crowd outside the club is ‘bout to bust through the door
Crank the amps up a notch ‘til they piss on the floor
A line o’white a puff o’smoke can’t get ya any more
Than some kick ass rock’n’roll an’a bit a hi-di-hi-di-ho

Rock’n’Roll circus is the devil on the go
Anywhere is where you wanna be after the show
Maybe hell’s breakin’ loos but we don’t really care
Cuz good folks go to heaven and bad ones anywhere

One, two, three, four, screaming in the night
Clowns to the left and jokers to the right
You gotta raise your fist (Hey) don’t think twice
Hi-di-hi-di-ho, we gonna rock tonight
Track Name: Edge of a broken Heart
She’s slipping away
trying to find her way home where her heart belongs

Another day
dragging broken pieces of her life a long

It’s a matter of time when you can turn around
Turn around and leave what’s left behind
You don’t need a reason why

Dont stay on the edge of a broken heart

She’s running away
from the empty roads of broken promises
Nothing to say
turn the sky to grey on the seas of love

A face in the dark is slowly fading away
Away without the mystery
of the way it used to be
Track Name: Every time you cry
Saturday night, your voice on the line, I’m lost without being with you
If I could travel through time, I’d be right by your side
The one and only dream that is true

Every time you cry, is every time you break my heart in two
Every time you shine, you take away the fear of losing you

One by one I feel the roses’ thorn and wipe those tears away
And with every beat of my heart I come a little close today


Every time you cry, is every time you break my heart in two
Every time you shine, you take away the fear of losing you

Even know, we’re a lifetime apart you’ll always be by my side
And even now it is breaking my heart
I’ll never let you out of my mind, out of my mind

SOLO

Every time you cry, is every time you break my heart in two
Every time you shine, you take away the fear of losing you
Track Name: Lay down the law
I’ve been downed by a hell lotta people tellin me what I can’t do
I play no hony tonk boogie woogie cover rock crap
I tell you what I gonna do
I got some drums, bass and big ass guitar
and stomp the hell outta you
I tell you bang your heads, move to the beat,
hell yeah, start to feel real good

This is mission control, bad to the bone tonight
We sold our soul for rock’n’roll

We gonna lay down the law, babe, tell me what you’ll gonna do
Smell the gasoline burning, a freight train running
Tell me what you gonna, what you gonna do

See a face in the mirror ahead, tell me what you gonna see
You should stand a little prouder, shout a lil louder
Hell yeah, that’s what you gonna be

This is mission control, bad to the bone tonight
We sold our soul for rock’n’roll

We gonna lay down the law, babe, tell me what you’ll gonna do
Smell the gasoline burning a freight train running
Tell me what you gonna, what you gonna do
Track Name: Weak as I am
Last night, seems I was caught in a little boys dream,
And this time I wonder where I was and could have been

Could I have seen the world in a better light than it appears
If I could see the world like a better place without no fears

Sometimes I wonder where you’ve been
when I needed you most in my life
Sometimes when I felt like giving up the pace and let go

Weak as I am still ready to fight who cares if I stand up or fall
You got me down on my knees but you ain't breaking me apart
Still a smile on my face cuz I can

Will you be there for me, I asked a thousand times in my dreams
Yeah will you care for me, when I will reach for your eternity

No lie I wonder where you’ve been
when I prayed for your grace all my life

Weak as I am still ready to fight who cares if I stand up or fall
You got me down on my knees but you ain't breaking me apart
Still a smile on my face cuz I can
Track Name: Stranger in paradise
I was blinded by your sweet emotion, just save me from another game tonight
Don’t believe in my true devotion, though I knew you inside out – I was right
Just look and see – There was no place in my heart all along
Under lock and key – Have to stay but the reason is wrong

Just one more chance to say goodbye
Just one more dream to feel alive
Before I realise

I’m a stranger in paradise, stranded and waiting for you
Just gimme one more dream, gimme one more night
I’m a stranger in paradise, and I’ll be coming for you
Just gimme one more dream, gimme one more night

Another day without a real emotion, clock is ticking slower every beat of my heart
You’re pushing me across the deepest ocean – feel the heat
And it’s tearing me slowly apart

Just one more dance please be so kind
Just keep the mystery in mind
And save my soul tonight

I’m a stranger in paradise, stranded and waiting for you
Just gimme one more dream, gimme one more night
I’m a stranger in paradise, and I’ll be coming for you
Just gimme one more dream, gimme one more night
Track Name: Too late to die
Take my hand and walk with me,
Turn the light into the darkness you wish to see
Right now – until you crave for more
And set the sail to the world you’re living for

Another time for disbelief, or surreality
Live and die with open eyes – see the ghost of you and me
The ghost of you and me

Your heart is turning in too deep, hang on for another night
My demons are calling in their deeds, blood turns to stone
too late to die

Take my soul and fly with me
To the sunset over fields of misery
Wake up - this is the place to be
Make up your mind about the world of you and me

Are you still in disbelief or in reality
Are you still in denial of the ghost of you and me
The ghost of you and me

Your heart is turning in too deep, hang on for another night
My demons are calling in their deeds, blood turns to stone
too late to die
Track Name: The Reaper
You crushed my heart in two, gave everything for you
Didn’t think that love gets any deeper
Since you’ve been dead and gone, been left here all alone, but I’m not ready for the reaper
Writings on the wall, it’s time to stand tall, just my lonely heart to keep her
They took your life away, and now I’m ready for the prey, no sign of God when you face the reaper

Too many words, too many lies, it’s time to fight and I realize - Can’t take another day
Face the ghosts of yesterday, stung so many times before - In this life you’re on your own

I wanna know, if heaven is falling will you break away
Back into my arms; let me feel the love of our yesterday

You were the one for me, it was so plain to see, An’ now you’re gone without a reason
Standing here alone, just like a lost soul, still ain’t ready for the reaper

We lived our life and compromised, we rolled the dice, reached for the stars – It was taking all away
still see your face still see your smile, Hope you found you’re piece of heaven after all, cause that’s where we belong..
Track Name: United we stand
Save my soul, you pray, you mourn
Is all hope lost you’ve been looking for
Truth or lie, no sweet goodbye
Every moment when you fight to survive

Somebody - wake up and look through the eyes of a child
Anybody – turn on the light in the place we hide

United we stand, united we fall
And nobody tells us the game
We’ve been part of the show, while we could have it all
Just by reaching out, we’re all the same
United we stand

Don’t turn your eyes away from me
You can’t disguise been lost in tears
It burns a hole inside my soul
And who is reaching for the hand of god

Somebody - wake up and look through the eyes of a child
Anybody – turn on the light in the place we hide

United we stand, united we fall
And nobody tells us the game
We’ve been part of the show, while we could have it all
Just by reaching out, we’re all the same
United we stand
Track Name: Time stops for no one but you
Lights go down on Grafton Street
In your eyes, the moon I see
Let us dive into another world, another time
The first to see and feel – to gaze at stars and Mr. Moon
And time will stop for no one, for no one but you
Board my plane to fantasy
Sail my ship through wildest dreams
Colour my shades of grey, immortality
of love that seems to be the painted sky of history
And your time will stop for no one, for no one but me
Flow through my veins, I can’t resist
Nothing to say, just one step closer
Just one more place to go
Track Name: Edge of a broken heart (Radio Edit)
She’s slipping away
trying to find her way home where her heart belongs

Another day
dragging broken pieces of her life a long

It’s a matter of time when you can turn around
Turn around and leave what’s left behind
You don’t need a reason why

Dont stay on the edge of a broken heart

She’s running away
from the empty roads of broken promises
Nothing to say
turn the sky to grey on the seas of love

A face in the dark is slowly fading away
Away without the mystery
of the way it used to be
