NOTES
“The Tin-soldier stood there in the midst of flames, and the heat was something dreadful, but whether it was the heat of the fire or of his love de did not know. His colour had clean gone but whether caused by his travels or by grief, no one could tell. He looked at the little girl, and she looked at him, when he felt that he was melting, but still he stood firmly with his musket at his shoulder. A door was then opened suddenly, and carried away by the draught, the little dancer flew like a sylph into the fire to the Tin-soldier. She blazed up and was gone. The soldier now melted down into a lump, and the next morning, when the servant cleared out the ashes, she found a tin heart. Of the little dancer nothing remained but the brooch, which was burnt quite black.”

LYRICS

HEAVENLY ACTION

Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action, reaction
Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action

Found out I was standing in your firing line
You made your mark, your arrow went through me
Cut a real impression on this heart of mine
I’m loving – what is happening to me?

Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action, reaction
Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action

Be my lover
I don’t want another
My angel from heaven
Be my lover
I don’t want another
My angel from heaven

Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action

Arrow in my heart, yeah we were meant to be
I knew it was my name you were calling
Celebration, now you’re standing next to me
Show me love emotion, I’m falling

Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action, reaction
Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action

Be my lover
I don’t want another
My angel from heaven
Be my lover
I don’t want another
My angel from heaven

Angel, angel

Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action, reaction
Angel made in heaven
All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action

DON’T SAY NO

Collecting conversation from the silence of the room
Misguided information, telling lies will never do
No better known occasion for improving the score
Paid my contribution, won’t play this game no more

I’m done with hesitating, got no stationary blues
Gonna use my imagination like the way I used to do
Headlong into passion, a sensational move
Made the right connection, I’m falling for the groove

I’m swinging high
And I’m swinging low
And I’m getting down
And I’m to and fro
And that’s the way the party goes

I’m making no mistaking, it’s a true love picture show
So forget the final curtain and forget the bitter blow
Got a lot of combination, it’s a fusion of love
Mention intervention, been bitten by the bug

I’m swinging high
And I’m swinging low
And I’m getting down
And I’m to and fro
And that’s the way the party goes

I’m done with hesitating, got no stationary blues
Gonna use my imagination like the way I used to do
Headlong into passion, a sensational move
Made the right connection, i’m falling for the groove

I’m swinging high
And I’m swinging low
And I’m getting down
And I’m to and fro
And that’s the way the party goes

I’m swinging high
And I’m swinging low
And I’m getting down
And I’m to and fro
And that’s the way the party goes

And that’s the way the party goes

MY HEART SO BLUE

I’ve got a picture, it’s there on the wall
I can’t remember why I keep it at all
The doors are cold and all the windows are grey
I write the book, there’s so much more I should say

Wave goodbye
See my heart, so blue
Wave goodbye
Lost for you

And now it’s over, I write it all down
No one to notice, one less face in the crowd
Our eyes are open when it suits us to see
Dear god in heaven show no mercy to me

Wave goodbye
See my heart, so blue
Wave goodbye
Lost for you

I shed no tears and there’s no reason for shame
A small consolation hides a stone with her name
Just a victim, still the light shines on bright
I’ve got the picture, think I’ll hold it tonight

Wave goodbye
See my heart, so blue
Wave goodbye
Lost for you

WHO NEEDS LOVE LIKE THAT

Who needs love like that?

There’s something going on, something not quite right
There something strange a-happening to me
There’s someone at the door, I hear voices in my head
It seems things aren’t the way they ought to be

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

It seemed so clear before I held my point of view
I kept my conversation never changed
And now it’s all gone wrong and words are kinda hard
And nothing else around me looks the same

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Love can turn you upside-down then leave you cold
It’s plain to see you’re losing all control

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

I’d like to understand, like to find out why
I can’t remember all the lines I should say
But then I see your face and nothing really counts
Don’t tell me now this feeling will stay

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Love can turn you upside-down then leave you cold
It’s plain to see you’re losin’ all control

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Who needs love like that?

PUSH ME SHOVE ME

Motion always seemed to me the way I ought to go
No one now gets in my way, I won’t let my heartache show
The same situation won’t bring me down no more
I’ll get on without you now, I don’t need your help for sure

Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
I call that over

There was once a time when I would fall for all your lies
Now I know the game you played, I see it clearly in your eyes
You can’t cry beside me, I won’t let you in my heart
I can walk out on my own, it’s high time we moved apart

Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
Push me, shove me
I call that over

You say talk it out, I say it’s all one big mistake
Cut so deep it’s hard and it’s the chance I have to take
I don’t need to follow, I want to face love on my own
Emotion, oh emotion, from now on that’s how it goes

Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
I call that over
Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
I call that over
