Nowhere To Go I got nowhere, I got nowhere to go I got nowhere, Oh I got nowhere to go But if I did, I'd never let you know Trouble follows, everywhere I am Trouble follows, everywhere I am It never catches me, cause I'm always on the lam People tell me, they say I'm nice People tell me, they say I'm nice But if you knew me, You know I'm as cold as ice I keep moving on Oh I won't be there long I keep moving on I’m long gone There's no happiness, wherever I land There's no happiness, wherever I land But when I get there, I always have a plan I try to settle, but there's nothing there for me I try to settle, but there's nothing there for me Nothing there for me Cause where I go, there's nothing new to see I keep moving on Oh I won't be there long I keep moving on I’m long gone ©Scott Leslie 2019

The Outsider Yeah, I’m an outsider I’ve known it all my life There’s nothing I can do Just living with the strife I’m not tryin’ to win a race, I’m movin’ at my own pace Stayin’ away from others, The lovers and their mothers I’m outside looking in The trouble is who I am I’m outside looking in Don’t know where to begin I’m trying to keep it real, You know life’s not such a deal Pretending is so useless, Everyone is so clueless People say they know me But no one really knows me I Blend in everywhere But do they really care I’m outside looking in The trouble is who I am I’m outside looking in Don’t know where to begin Yeah, I’m the outsider I’ve known it all my life There’s nothing I can do Just living with the strife No one really hears me No one tries to see me An outsider just like me An outsider just like me An outsider just like me An outsider just like me ©Scott Leslie 2019

You Gotta Choose (Between Love & Hate) I hear him speak of hate I hear him speak of fear I know I can't believe him I know I'll never go near I hear his angry words I see his nasty ways I know I'll never like him I don't want the end of days You gotta choose between love & hate You gotta choose between love & hate I hear him talk of war I see him tweet his lies I know he has no love He’ll never hear our cries They pile on the bigotry They build a great divide We need to come together Get off this crazy ride You gotta choose between love & hate You gotta choose between love & hate I'm tired, tired of living in fear I'm tired, tired of living without hope I’m looking, looking for a new day I’m looking, looking for a new way Oh yeah You gotta choose between love & hate You gotta choose between love & hate ©Scott Leslie 2019

Noises in the right order The wars that protect me Are so far from here But the people who hate me Are oh so near Our wealth is amazing, To the weak & the poor The streets are filling With those shown the door Noises in the right order I hear them now I hear them now The cat walks are filled With incredible beauty But as time goes by They mean nothing to me True love is only something From a distant time Now I cannot feel it Now it's a crime Noises in the right order I hear them now I hear them now The voices in my head Are keeping me in line Don't know what I’m doing But I really don't mind The future looks so bright From a nuclear glow Where we go from here I guess we'll never know Noises in the right order I hear them now I hear them now Noises in the right order I hear them now I hear them now ©Scott Leslie 2019

No Sympathy For Charles I’m the king of crime. I’m the criminal. The juvenile delinquent. The one that’s terminal. It’s hard to tell the truth. In a world like this. No one really knows. Keep ‘em in the darkness. The rebel, the outcast, the unwanted one. I’m everything that everyone looks down upon. Well there’s the fear. The insanity. So much confusion. They gonna blame me. The worst that you ever did. A deal with the devil. A curse of your existence. On a whole new level. The rebel, the outcast, the unwanted one. I’m everything that everyone looks down upon. I don’t wanna race war I don’t wanna hate no one I’m down on my luck Until they see I’m gone Don’t wanna be a rockstar. I’m not an entertainer. They curse me to the heavens. Tell everyone I killed her. The rebel, the outcast, the unwanted one. I’m everything that everyone looks down upon. Try and disrespect me And I will destroy you Look to my followers They will deplore you They’re never gonna find them Left the bodies to the bugs We’re gonna meet our maker It’s not all love and hugs The rebel, the outcast, the unwanted one. I’m everything that everyone looks down upon. ©Scott Leslie 2019

The Power Of Sin I’ve got a story I want to tell Every day of my life’s Another day in hell I got no money No place to stay Everywhere I go, They turn me away I used to have money I used to have fame But I did bad things I’m the one to blame Power was my drug Sex was my fling They went together Better than anything I can’t escape the hell I’ve made My life will never be the same I can’t escape my sins of old Lord please save, save my tortured soul Powerful deals Powerful lunch Spending their money On nothing but a hunch Well people really hate me But I don’t mind I never helped anyone If they weren’t my kind It’s the drugs that got me The scandals too My hands in the till I’m forever blue Well power is seductive Made me do it I thought it was easy But I really blew it I can’t escape the hell I’ve made My life will never be the same Can’t escape the sins I’ve done My life, my life’s come undone The story has an ending It might be good If I can take it To Hollywood To Hollywood To Hollywood ©Scott Leslie 2019

I've Got Something To Say I've got something to say I've got something to say You tell me, what you want You tell me, what you need But you never listen to me, to me We talk and talk but you never hear You don't see me 'cause you're elsewhere Don't know if I can take anymore, anymore I've got something to say I've got something to say Listen to me, I need you too I'm sick and tired, if you only knew I'm so close to being through with you Tell me why I should stay Tell me now, or I'll be on my way Your time is up, you better go, better go I've got something to say I've got something to say I've got something to say I've got something to say ©Scott Leslie 2019

I Can’t Take Another Day Love is all we need Is what I hear them say But I can’t go on anymore Not if you won’t stay Not if you won’t stay Well I’m looking to the past While others move ahead Where are the years going But I remember what you said Don’t let the time slip away Or your past will define you Remember those you love The ones you know are true I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ve lost my way I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ll never stay Fear became my enemy I had to let it go Love is the answer Yes that much I know I remember when I met you You meant so much to me Losing you brought sadness All I could do was grieve I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ve lost my way I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ll never stay The nights are getting longer babe My days on earth are few Your words of love stay with me I can only think of you I’m losing my religion I ache for our lost love The truth of what could be Well I curse the man above I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ve lost my way I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ll never stay I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ve lost my way I can’t take another day If you’re gone, I’ll never stay ©Scott Leslie 2019

The Slaves In Your Soul Come from the darkness, step into the light Leave the fires of hate, for what is right The fear is in your heart, that I know The slaves in your soul, let them go Set them free Set them free The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul Lay down your burden, push off that whip Feel the resistance, let your hatred strip Open your eyes, to a new beginning Think of others, don't think of winning Set them free Set them free The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul The price of freedom, is a heavy cost The road is long, don't get lost The cries of pain, will leave you soon The call of love, will make you swoon Set them free Set them free The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul Bring your light forward, so others can see Make your voice clear, move carefully We seek destiny, in another place I can't believe, the smile on your face Set them free Set them free The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul Let them go The slaves in your soul ©Scott Leslie 2019

I Need To Know The Song She took me down to the river To wash my sins away But she ran off with the preacher man And stole my love that day The crowd shook their heads in sorrow And walked away in shame Was it her or the preacher man Or was it me they had to blame Our sins show us the way But the road ahead is long I don’t know what to say But I need to know the song My past is a burden That I carry every day Of all the love I’ve ever had It never went my way Her kindness truly healed me My love for her really grew I would follow her anywhere I believed her feelings true Our sins show us the way But the road ahead is long I don’t know what to say But I need to know the song Our destiny was an illusion That left my faith in tatters When she ran off that fateful day Now nothing really matters So nothing really matters No nothing really matters Nothing really matters To me ©Scott Leslie 2019

Rasputin Rocks His beard is long, his fingers thin His mind is sharp, he's original sin His look is forceful, his speech mesmerize I am confused, he has beautiful eyes I am so taken, I bend to his will My heart beats but my mind is still The world shows us evil and hate Yet I follow him, I don’t hesitate My enemies are coming for me I try to run but this cannot be My riches won’t change not a thing They will torture me, make me sing We’re in danger, yes it’s true They’re coming now, what’ll we do We must leave, escape their greed Rasputin save us, it’s our need Rasputin rocks Rasputin rocks The day has come to put us down Look to the sky, I can only frown Where was he, we needed him so Yes they had him, but I didn’t know They tried to kill him a thousand times Told their stories, made their rhymes The rest we know is history We all know what happens to me Rasputin rocks Rasputin rocks Rasputin rocks Rasputin rocks ©Scott Leslie 2019

The Devil Laughs I’m walking these roads Scattered with souls Of hate and fear Don't know where I've been Or where I'm heading But there’s danger there I get to the town, Where the devil resides, He tells me I’m late Says don’t be afraid And he starts to smile And then he seals my fate I can’t see my way out of here I keep living with the fear Please take my sins and let them go Let them go yeah The women are naked While the men are weak And I'm nervous too The devil laughs Don't worry man You’ll make it through I keep on moving Through the bodies and filth It's so hot in here Then I found my way To the outside And I lose my fear Now I see my way out of here I won't keep living with the fear I'll take my sins and I let them go, Let them go yeah The sun is so bright It lifts my soul I'm free again My mind is swirling All the hate is gone The Devil laughs You’re free he says As I lost my sin Yeah I've lost my sin I've lost my sin I’ve lost my sin ©Scott Leslie 2019

about

Scott Leslie Vero Beach, Florida

I’m a self-taught guitarist/songwriter and my influences are from the amazing music of the 60’s and 70's. In the late 60’s/early 70’s I had the good fortune to be a part-time roadie working the DC area, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York for a number of bands. They included; The Jeff Beck Group, Ten Years After, The Doors, The Who, ELP and many others. So I had some interesting influences. ... more
