about

X-CALIBER formed in Irwin, Pennsylvania back in 1984. These five young heavy metal knights; James Yedlick (guitars), Kevin Donegan (vocals), Bruce Fleckenstein (bass), Jerry Conrad (guitar), and Donnie Lee Poland (drums)would set out upon a quest to realize their vision and rock and roll fantasy. Against all odds and disbelievers, they battled furiously and gallantly. The result of their trials would be the self-produced 'Warriors of the Night' LP released in 1986.

Since the album's release three decades ago it has become the Holy Grail to many collectors and has been known to fetch hundreds of dollars.

Now all these years later finally this gem will see a proper re-issue and first time ever on CD remastered from the best possible sources by Jamie King at The Basement Studios North Carolina.

Track Name: X-Caliber - Runaway
Runaway
(Donegan, Yedlick)

The reality of growing old
Is not so far away
As ageless time goes through my mind
I let it slip away
I search inside my head sometimes
For answers that I need
Seems I can't reach far enough
Inside to find the key

Chorus:
And I'm a runaway
I'm goin' from town to town
Yes I'm a runaway
I'm lost and never found
Yes I'm a runaway
Runaway
I'm a runaway
Runaway

I dream of days gone by
And think of yesteryear
When life was much more simple
When you were standing here
And I search inside my head sometimes
For answers that I need
Seems I can't reach far enough
Inside to find the key

Chorus

Solo

Chorus

Runaway
I'm a runaway
Track Name: X-Caliber - Warriors of the Night
Warriors of the Night
Yedlick / Narration: Fleckenstein

The components of the old system
Became weakened by the forces of evil
The rebels had destroyed them from within
A new system was then formed
From the best picked warriors
In the known universe
These spirits of everlasting life
Had pulled themselves together
And became invincible
To all mankind

In the darkness of the night
The warriors shall prevail
They must fight for the right
To flee the gates of hell
They must kill off the demons
And let their prisoners go
Trying to save all the women and children
And letting their courage show

In the break of day
In the land of the old
The hearts of the brave young warriors
Never grew cold
They fought for their freedom
And fought for their rights
But the bloody battle of life
Would only be won
By the warriors of the night

(Chorus)
The warriors of the night
Fighting for love
And fighting for the right
The warriors fighting for love
And were fighting for the right
The warriors fighting for love
And fighting for the right
The warriors fighting for love
And fighting for their right

The brilliance of these members
Together was like magic
A spell no one could break except themselves
These spirits wanted to share their enlightenments
So they brought all of their ideas and talents
Together to a whole
But for them to be successful
They must use their intelligence
To overcome the black forces
Which can destroy them
Physically, emotionally
And from within
Track Name: X-Caliber - The Sword
The Sword
Donegan / Yedlick

We drew our swords
And went to war
Fighting for our peace
We took the time
We drew the line
But never did we cease
The enemy we knew so well
Just wouldn't let us be
We had to fight to prove our might
Survival was the key

(Chorus)
I pulled the sword from the rock
Now I'm the one on the top
I pulled the sword from the rock
Now I'm the one on the top

We won the war
We paid the price
With all our brave young men
Letting children die in war
Well it must a sin
The enemy we knew so well
Just wouldn't let us be
We had to fight to prove our might
Survival was the key
Track Name: X-Caliber - Tell Me Why
Tell Me Why
Donegan / Yedlick

Years ago
When we were young
We played around
We had our fun
But times have changed
They're rearranged
We're different now
We're not the same
We're lost in life
Playing silly games
But you won't tell me
If it's the same

(Chorus)
Tell me why
Tell me why you love me
Tell me why
Tell me why you need me

I'm thinking of you
All the time
Those memories
Are etched in my mind
I realize now
The things we lack
But time is gone
We can't bring it back
We're lost in life
Playing silly games
But you won't tell me
Am I to blame
Track Name: X-Caliber - Rock's Alive
Rock's Alive
Donegan / Yedlick

Rock and roll will never die
Listen to what I say
Cause rock and roll is still alive
And it's here to stay
Well music soothes the savage beast
Trapped inside us all
And music lovers, all of us,
We'll never take a fall

Chorus:
Wo wo rock's alive
Wo wo rock's alive

Oh so many years ago
When rock and roll was young
People never realized
That rock had just begun
Well they said it was just a fad
And it would go away
But you and I know rock's alive
And it's here to stay

(Chorus)

If you want it
And you need it everyday
Come on do everything I say, ya
Have a good time, throw a party,
Live it up
We gonna rock and roll you
Strut our stuff
Track Name: X-Caliber - Don't Say Goodbye
Don't Say Goodbye
Donegan / Yedlick

I see you everywhere
Everywhere I go
But you are blind to me
Your eyes see me no more

I hope I lose my sight
When I think of you
But I still see your face
The face that I once knew

(Chorus)
(Don't say goodbye)
They say love's a losin' game
(Don't say goodbye)
Either win
Or you feel the pain
(Don't say goodbye)
This time babe
I'm comin' back for you
This time babe
This time you won't feel blue

I try to block you out
I try to close my eyes
But there you are inside of me
With me all the time

Now that I'm far away
And you don't want me back
I guess this is goodbye
Goodbye, so long, goodbye

(Chorus)

So don't you send me away
I'm comin' home to stay
Track Name: X-Caliber - Told You not to Run
Told You Not To Run
Donegan / Yedlick

How you doin', standing there
Well can you hear me?
Do you care?
Well I been down
Now I'm ready to rock
And I think about you baby, oh a lot
Oh, oh I need your lovin' baby
Oh, oh I need your lovin' baby

(Chorus)
I told you not to run
I told you not to hide
I told you not to run
I told you not to hide

I'm standing right here
Looking at you
Well can you feel me
Feel what I do
Well I been down
Now I'm ready to rock
And I think about you baby,
Oh a lot
Oh, oh I need your lovin' baby
Oh, oh I need your lovin' baby

(Chorus)

I told you not to run
Don't run away from me
I told you I'm the one
Don't run away from me
Track Name: X-Calier - Someday
Someday
Donegan / Yedlick

Someday we'll be together again
We'll rock and roll forever my friend
We'll live our lives as free as a bird
We'll soar so high and never get hurt

(Chorus)
Someday
Oh wo someday
Oh wo someday

Cause freedom, oh freedom,
Is so hard to find
You're so wrapped up in policy
All the time
Don't let your life pass you by
While you're still young and free
So take a chance
You'll never know
Just what you might be

(Chorus)

Someday
