AM I RIGHT?

Wandering through the back roads
And the rain comes rushing down
To resolve your love
For this man in his twenties

Am I right?
Am I wrong?
Or am I just dreaming?

Climbing up the back stairs
There’s a chill wind in the air
I wrap up from the cold
Pull the blind in the window

Who was here?
Was it you?
Or am I just dreaming?

Look at all the lonely people
Walking miles around the town
I can see the old cathedral
But I have to play it down
Boats along the river
Setting up their sails
And life carries on as normal
Although you’re not around

Waiting at the bus stop
Laughing off the
Shaking their umbrellas
‘Til it starts again
Flowers in the water
Floating off downstream
Paper in the gutter
Blowing in the breeze

Am I right?
Am I wrong?
Or am I just dreaming?

Look at all the lonely people
Walking miles around the town
I can see the old cathedral
But I have to play it down
Boats along the river
Setting up their sails
And life carries on as normal
Although you’re not around

Waiting at the bus stop
Laughing off the rain
Shaking their umbrellas
‘Til it starts again
Flowers in the water
Floating off downstream
Paper in the gutter
Blowing in the breeze

Wandering through the back roads
And the rain comes rushing down
To resolve your love
For this man in his twenties

Am I right?
Am I wrong?
Or am I just dreaming?

LET IT FLOW

What about the good times
They were few and far between
That’s the understatement of the year
Some would call it passion
But it means a lot to me
Life’s little joke is coming clear

And that is
Stronger than strong, wider than wide
Deeper than deep, higher than high

All is love, and love is fine
Let it shine, let it flow
Let it flow through me
All is love, and love is fine
Let it shine, let it flow
Let it flow through me

You got twenty-twenty vision
When walking down the street
There’s a fool on every corner standing by
Nearly midnight
And nothing here for me
Guess I have to wait ’til the morning light

And that is
Stronger than strong, wider than wide
Deeper than deep, higher than high

All is love, and love is fine
Let it shine, let it flow
Let it flow through me
All is love, and love is fine
Let it shine, let it flow
Let it flow through me

All is love, and love is fine
Let it shine, let it flow
Let it flow through me
All is love, and love is fine
Let it shine, let it flow
Let it flow through me

WAITING FOR SEX

Whatever you say has no effect
On my sense of well-being
I reject the savage words, that issue forth
Without meaning

If you’re waiting for sex, then stand in line
It’s merely an extra, you invade my inner space
And I tear out your guts for garters

Your eloquence is nothing more than hearsay
Your intelligence leaves much to be desired

Oh, you leave me restless
You leave me starblind

Step in to my world
And I will give you a garland of roses
We’ll taste the heavy scent
And drift around for endless moments

But don’t bother to come
If your heart is so full of poison
One drop of golden sun
Will melt you down into the West Witch

Your eloquence is nothing more than hearsay
Your intelligence leaves much to be desired

Oh, you leave me restless
You leave me starblind

It’s elementary my dear Watson, free me
Or the Baskervilles will hunt you down tonight
You’re not the world’s most handsome man believe me
A thousand others like you standing by

Oh, you leave me restless
You leave me starblind

LOVE TO HATE YOU

Woah oh oh oh, woah oh oh oh
Woah oh oh oh, woah oh oh oh
Woah oh oh oh, woah oh oh oh

I’m crazy flowing over with ideas
A thousand ways to woo a lover so sincere
Love and hate, what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

For every Casanova that appears
My sense of hesitation disappears
Love and hate, what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didn’t come with any satisfaction guarantee
So I return them to the sender
And the note attached will read

How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

Oh, you really still expect me to believe
Every single letter I receive
Sorry you, what a shameful situation
Sending shivers up and down my spine

Ooh, I like to read a murder mystery
I like to know the killer isn’t me
Love and hate, what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers, make me quiver
Feel it sliver up and down my spine

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didn’t come with any satisfaction guarantee
So I return them to the sender
And the note attached will read

How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didn’t come with any satisfaction guarantee
So I return them to the sender
And the note attached will read

How I love to hate you
I love to hate you

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didn’t come with any satisfaction guarantee
So I return them to the sender
And the note attached will read

How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

CHORUS

Go ahead with your dreaming
For what it’s worth or you’ll be stricken-bound kicking up dirt
For when it’s dark, you never know what the night will bring

Go ahead with your scheming
And shop at home, you’ll find treasure while cooking up bones
But the knife is sharp, you’d better watch that you don’t cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Go ahead with your dreaming
For what it’s worth or you’ll be stricken-bound kicking up dirt
For when it’s dark, you never know what the night will bring

Go ahead with your scheming
And shop at home, you’ll find treasure while cooking up bones
But the knife is sharp, you’d better watch that you don’t cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Holy moses, our hearts are screaming
Souls are lifting, only dreaming
We’ll be waiting, some are praying
For a time where no one’s cheating

The sunlight rising over the horizon
Just a distant memory
The dawn chorus (dawn chorus)
Birds singing, bells ringing
In our hearts, in our minds

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

PERFECT STRANGER

Hell, I gave up my time for a no-good affair
You’d think I’d learned by now
To be taken in by a perfect stranger
That I had the know-how

Still, more fool me
For kidding myself
That’s the way it should be
Maybe I should grow up
Would I feel confined to the same space?
Or would I feel
That I talked myself into a corner?

So long, you’re no friend of mine, you’re false and unkind
You’re indestructible
No place I’d rather be than in the ring with you
We’d go twenty rounds

Still, more fool me
For killing myself
That’s the way it should be
Maybe I should grow up
Would I feel confined to the same space?
Or would I feel
That I talked myself into a corner?

I see the sky move above me
But I just can’t take control
What a sweet sensation
Woah oh

Aha, love
Sweet sweet love

Hell I gave up my time
For a no-good affair
You’d think I’d learned by now
To be taken in
By a perfect stranger
That I had the know how

Still, more fool me
For kidding myself
That’s the way it should be
Maybe I should grow up
Would I feel confined to the same space?
Or would I feel (say goodbye stranger)
That I talked myself into a corner?
