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

WAITING FOR THE DAY

It was only for a fight
That I asked you to come in
But you brought me tumbling down
When the walls came caving in

Won’t you help me dry my tears?
Help me roll away the years?
And perhaps I will forgive you
And the hurt will disappear

But in a fit of blind arrogance you stood up and walked away
If you’d given me half a chance I’ll be waiting for the day

For the day that you, oh
Come back to me
Come on back to me
You, oh
Come back to me

So forget the long goodbye
You never really tried
Threw the keys down on the table
You’ve got your sense of pride

Then you had to tell the world
Your story must be heard
Slam the door behind you
Without a single word

But in a fit of blind arrogance you stood up and walked away

The day that
You, oh
Come back to me
Come on back to me
You, oh
Come back to me
Come on back to me
You, oh
Come back to me

No I never had a single thought in my head
No I never had a single thought

Oh for the day that
You, oh
Come back to me
Come on back to me
You, oh
Come back to me
Come on back to me

You could be my lifelong friend
You could be the light of dawn
You could keep me close at hand
You could keep me safe and warm

I will be your fantasy
If you come and stay with me
I will try to give you all
Waiting for the night to fall

You could be the light of day
You could be my lifelong friend
You could keep me close at hand
Waiting for the day to end

I could be your fantasy
If you come and stay with me
I will try to give my all
Waiting for the night to fall

JOAN

Power generation
You live up your life and it feels like fire, woah
Suspended in animation
A trick of the light and it drives you higher, woah oh oh

Blind vision
Blind faith
You really can be sold if you dare to disagree

It’s just not within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be
What a waste of time and energy
It’s just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give your life so easily (I’ll be there)
Easily

Psychic celebration
Look up in the stars and see Venus rising, woah woah
Rapture, fascination
You live for the night and your own desire, woah oh oh

Blind vision
Blind faith
You really can’t rely on what they tell you for effect

It’s just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be (I do care)
What a waste of time and energy
It’s just not withing the scheme of things (live your life)
To give your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be (I’ll be there)
What a waste of time and energy
Energy

Blind vision
Blind faith
You really can be sold if you dare to disagree

It’s just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be (I do care)
What a waste of time and energy
It’s just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be (I’ll be there)
What a waste of time and energy

It’s just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be (I do care)
What a waste of time and energy
It’s just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give your life so easily
That’s not the way you’re meant to be (I’ll be there)
What a waste of time and energy
Energy

Energy
Easy, easy, easy energy

BREATH OF LIFE

Never had a point of view
‘Cause my mind was always someone else’s mind
I never had to tell a lie
‘Cause I left the choices up to them
Don’t know why, but I did

Oh, I want life
Life wants me
To breathe in its love

Take me I’m yours
Now I’m coming up for air
I’m gonna live my time for the rest of my life
Then I’ll be coming back for more

I never had to call the tune
‘Cause I always drifted with the tide of the moon
I would go out every night
Looking for someone to treat me right
Not a chance, not a hope in this world (world)

Oh, I want life
Life wants me
To breathe in its love

Take me I’m yours (take me)
Now I’m coming up for air (I’m yours)
I’m gonna live my time for the rest of my life
Then I’ll be coming back for more
Ooh, ooh

Take me I’m yours (take me)
Now I’m coming up for air (I’m yours)
I’m gonna live my time for the rest of my life
Then I’ll be coming back for more
More

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?

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

TURNS THE LOVE TO ANGER

Lest we forget
The speed at which the world is turning
Careering through space and time
On her fatalistic journey

Ooh, it scares me half to death
That we tear ourselves apart
A war of love or religion
Close your eyes to the screaming

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession (obsession)
Turns the love to anger

East calling west
Falling onto stony ground
We are lost in our vision
We are primitive and fearless

We send our message of confusion
Across the great divide
With our eyes full of wonder
Still the world goes spinning by (spinning by)

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession (obsession)
Turns the love to anger

Love is where the dream should lie
It’s not for us to reason why
Or to ponder over strategy

So come with us and take a ride
Somewhere in the big blue sky
Before it’s too late
It’s too late

Hope you find it baby
What you’re looking for
Doesn’t really matter
If you’re rich or poor
‘Cause you’ve had your day
Yes you had your day

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession (obsession)
Turns the love to anger

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession (obsession)
Turns the love to anger

SIREN SONG

Ever faithful I endure to listen for the sound of the siren song
Ragged whispers of imprisoned sisters
Cutting through real life, drawing me nearer

The colour of the pure in soul like water shall fill the cloudless sky

Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
And wrap yourself up in every facet of emotion
Oh oh oh

Hearts that cry diamond tears, spirits that walk for a thousand years
Hear them calling on that darkest morning
Pulling me under, my thoughts disappear

The colour of the pure in soul
Like water shall fill the cloudless sky

Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
And wrap yourself up in every facet of emotion
Oh oh oh

The colour of the pure in soul like water shall fill the cloudless sky

Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
And wrap yourself up in every facet of emotion
Oh oh oh

Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall

Can you feel love?
Can you feel joy?
Can you feel pain?

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?

HOME

I ain’t never going home
‘Cause I’m having a good time
I ain’t never going home
‘Cause my time is come

I’ll wait for the winter to lie at my door
White stretches out before me
Leads me to the hall

White circles play within my mind
Ices over and freezes life
Time will come, time will come, time will fall
Bringing the world to its feet
Bringing the world to its feet

I ain’t never turning back
‘Cause I’ve come this far
And I’m lost within my tracks
I will follow the north star

I’ll wait ’til the springtime is breathing at my door
The wilderness before me
Heeds the lion’s roar

White circles play within my mind
Ices over and freezes
Time will come, time will come, time will fall
Bringing the world to its feet
Bringing the world her hands and her knees

I’ll wait ’til the winter is lying at my door
Time stretches out before me
A stone’s throw from the door

White circles play within my mind
Ices over and freezes life
Time will come, time will come, time will fall
Bringing the world to its feet
Bringing the world her hands and her feet

Bringing the world to its feet
