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?

HEAVENLY ACTION

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

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

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

OH L’AMOUR

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

Looking for you,you were looking for me
Always reaching for you, you were too blind to see
Oh love of my heart why leave me alone?
I’m falling apart, no good on my own

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

Why throw it away? Why walk out on me?
I just live for the day, for the way it should be
There once was a time I had you here by my side
You said I wasn’t your kind, only here for the ride

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

No emotional ties, you don’t remember my name
I lay down and die, I’m only to blame
Oh love of my heart, it’s up to you now
You tore me apart, I hurt inside-out

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

SOMETIMES

It’s not the way you lead me by the hand into the bedroom
It’s not the way you throw your clothes upon the bathroom floor

Been thinking about you, I just couldn’t wait to see
Fling my arms around you as we fall in ecstasy

Ooh, sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh, sometimes
It’s the broken heart that decides

It’s not the way that you caress me, toy with my affection
It’s not my sense of emptiness you fill with your desire

Climb in bed beside me, we can lock the world outside
Touch me, satisfy me, warm your body next to mine

Ooh, sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh, sometimes
It’s the broken heart that decides

Woah

Ooh, sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh, sometimes
It’s the broken heart that decides

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE

You are on one side and I am on the other
Are we divided?

You are on one side and I am on the other
Are we divided?
Why can’t we live together?

There are no rights
This isn’t your decision
We need to talk of changing things
But no one wants to listen

It doesn’t have to be like that
It doesn’t have to be like that
It doesn’t have to be like that

A heart on the inside the same as any other
Are we divided?
Someone always has to suffer

We are broken
There’s no one left to change it
Is that the way it has to be?
Why can’t we rearrange it?

It doesn’t have to be like that (one against one)
It doesn’t have to be like that (one against one)
It doesn’t have to be like that

Alava mo ja na me me limbaniango limbaniago
Zimbabwe abo naga na me me limbaniango limbaniago
Alava mo ja na me me limbaniango limbaniago
Zimbabwe abo naga na me me limbaniango limbaniago

What is the secret in calling me a brother?
Are we divided?
Always one against the other

We are strong now
Put down the ammunition
For what we know is right
Is gonna break down this division

It doesn’t have to be like that (one against one)
It doesn’t have to be like that (one against one)
It doesn’t have to be like that (one against one, one against one)
It doesn’t have to be like that (one against one, one against one)
It doesn’t have to be like that

You are on one side and I am on the other
Are we divided?

VICTIM OF LOVE

I don’t wanna look like some kind of fool
I don’t wanna break my heart over you
I’m building a wall
Everyday it’s getting higher
This time I won’t end up another victim of love

You say that I could show some emotion
That I’ve been keeping secrets from you
But I can see through all your sweet talk
And all of your affections untrue

I’m gonna find you out
If I scream and I shout
You won’t break down my protection

I don’t wanna look like some kind of fool
I don’t wanna break my heart over you
I’m building a wall
Everyday it’s getting higher
This time I won’t end up another victim of love

I’m gonna lock up what I’m feeling inside
Ain’t no way you can break down the door
‘Cause this time I’ve learned my lesson
You can take this declaration of war

Step right back
Put on your coat and your hat
Gonna avoid all complication

I don’t wanna look like some kind of fool
I don’t wanna break my heart over you
I’m building a wall
Everyday it’s getting higher
This time I won’t end up another victim of love

THE CIRCUS

Call it new technology and they use it to burn and they show no concern
Work for their prosperity while the big wheels turn, now it’s too late to learn

Don’t upset the teacher
Though we know he lied to you
Don’t upset the preacher
He’s gonna close his eyes for you

And it’s a shame
That you’re so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

Father worked in industry, now the work has moved on and the factory’s gone
See them sell your history where once you were strong and you used to belong

There was once a future
For a working man
There was once a lifetime
For a skillful hand
Yesterday

And it’s a shame
That you’re so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

Don’t upset the teacher
Though we know he lied to you
Don’t upset the preacher
He’s gonna close his eyes for you

And it’s a shame
That you’re so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

Tempers fray so easily in desperate despair, is there anyone who cares?
Just another tragedy, just a personal affair in a room somewhere

There was once a future
For a working man
There was once a lifetime
For a skillful hand
Yesterday

And it’s a shame
That you’re so afraid
Just a worker waiting in the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream (broken dream)
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

Of a broken, of a broken dream

Putting back the pieces of a broken dream (broken dream)
Putting back the pieces of a broken dream

SHIP OF FOOLS

I can’t believe what is happening to me
My head is spinning
The flowers and the trees are encapsulating me
And I go spinning

He was the baby of the class you know
He really didn’t know that one and one was two
Two and two were four
He was the baby of the class you know
He really didn’t know that, really didn’t know that
Oh what a poor soul

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so precious and so cruel?

I close my eyes and I try to imagine
What you’re dreaming
Why can’t you see what you’re doing to me?
My world is spinning

You were the baby of the class you know
You really didn’t know that one and one was two
Two and two were four
You were the baby of the class
You were so young and so uncertain
Suffer little children
Oh what a poor soul

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so precious and so cruel?

He was the baby of the class you know
He really didn’t know that one and one was two
Two and two were four
He was the baby of the class you know
He was so young and so uncertain
Suffer little children
Oh what a poor soul

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so precious and so cruel?

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so fragile and so cruel?

Ooh, do we not sail on a ship of fools?
Ooh, why is life so precious and so cruel?

CHAINS OF LOVE

How can I explain when there a few words I can choose?
How can I explain when words get broken?

Do you remember there was a time when people on the street were walking hand in hand in hand?
They used to talk about the weather, making plans together, days would last forever

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we’ll break these chains of love
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love

Do you remember once upon a time when there were open doors?
An invitation to the world
We were falling in and out with lovers, looking out for others, our sisters and our brothers

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we’ll break these chains of love
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love
Together we’ll break these chains of love

How can I explain when there a few words I can choose?
How can I explain when words get broken?

We used to talk about the weather, making plans together, days would last forever

Come to me, cover me, hold me
Together we’ll break these chains of love
Don’t give up, don’t give up
Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love
Together we’ll break these chains of love

Don’t give up, don’t give up
Together with me and my baby, break the chains of love
Together we’ll break these chains of love

A LITTLE RESPECT

I try to discover a little something to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart

I’m so in love with you
I’ll be forever blue
That you gimme no reason why you make me work so hard

That you gimme no
That you gimme no
That you gimme no
That you gimme no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please
Give a little respect to me

And if I should falter would you open your arms to me?
We can make love not war and live at peace with our hearts

I’m so in love with you
I’ll be forever blue
What religion or reason could drive a man to forsake his lover?

Don’t you tell me no
Don’t you tell me no
Don’t you tell me no
Don’t you tell me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please
Give a little respect to me

I’m so in love with you
I’ll be forever blue
That you gimme no reason, you know you make me work so hard

That you gimme no
That you gimme no
That you gimme no
That you gimme no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please (give a little respect)
Give a little respect to me

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please (give a little respect)
Give a little respect to me

STOP!

We’ll be together again
I’ve been waiting for a long time
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be together again
I’ll be connected to the right line

We’ll be together
And nobody ain’t never gonna disconnect us
Or ever separate us
Or say to us you’ve got to

Stop!
Stand there where you are
Before you go too far
Before you make a fool out of love
Stop!
Don’t jump before you look
Get hung upon a hook
Before you make a fool out of love

We’ll be together again
I’ve been waiting for a long time
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be together again
I’ll be connected to the right line

We’ll be together
And nobody ain’t never gonna disconnect us
Or ever separate us
Or say to us you’ve got to

Stop!
Stand there where you are
Before you go too far
Before you make a fool out of love
Stop!
Don’t jump before you look
Get hung upon a hook
Before you make a fool out of love

We’ll be together
And nobody ain’t never gonna disconnect us
Or ever separate us
Or say to us you’ve got to

Stop!
Stand there where you are
Before you go too far
Before you make a fool out of love
Stop!
Don’t jump before you look
Get hung upon a hook
Before you make a fool out of love
Stop!

DRAMA!

One rule for us, for you another
Do unto yourself as you see fit for your brother
Is that not within your realm of understanding?
A fifty-second capacity of mind, too demanding?

Woah, then poor unfortunate you
There are a myriad of things that you can do
Like pick up a pen and paper (pick up a pen and paper)
Go and talk to a friend (go and talk to a friend)
The history of the future (history of the future)
No violence or revenge

Your shame is never ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty (guilty)
And how you ever entered into this life
God only knows the infinite complexities of love

We all have the ability
Our freedom is fragile
We all laugh and we cry, don’t we?
We all bleed and we smile

Your shame is never ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how you ever entered into this life
God only knows you’re not to sacrifice the art of love

Your shame is never ending
Just one psychological drama after another
We are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
God only knows the infinite complexities of love

We are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
God only knows we’re not to sacrifice the art of love

We are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
The Lord only knows the infinite complexities of love

You are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
God only knows the ultimate necessity of love

YOU SURROUND ME

Don’t ever let me take you for granted
You’ve got the finger on the pulse of my soul
Mmm, let me place a kiss in the small of your back
Love and protect you from the evils of this world

Mmm, baby don’t ever leave me stranded
Who ever said that the streets were paved with gold?
Well I’m afraid that we’re all sadly mistaken
There’s nothing here ’til we have someone to hold

Mmm, I love you with all the joy of living
‘Til the lights go down in New York City
It’s a special love affair
There’s magic in the air

You’ve gotta shake me down
Bring me ’round to my senses
‘Til I’m lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

If love wasn’t here would we reinvent it?
Mmm, take me down to the very root of my soul
Mmm, baby say it as if you really mean it
And feel the passion work its way up through your skin

Mmm, I love you with all the joy of living
‘Til the lights go down in New York City
It’s a special love affair
There’s magic in the air

You’ve gotta shake me down
Bring me ’round to my senses
‘Til I’m lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

Let me take you by the hand
And we can go and find a brand new world
Star light, star bright
Let me take you by the hand
And lead you to a safe place in this world

You’ve gotta shake me down
Bring me ’round to my senses
‘Til I’m lost and found
And you surround me with your senses

BLUE SAVANNAH

Blue savannah song
Oh, blue savannah song

Somewhere ‘cross the desert
Some time in the early hours
In a restless world
On the open highway

My home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only
I send my love to you

Blue savannah song
Oh, blue savannah song

Racing ‘cross the desert
At a hundred miles an hour
To the orange side
Through the clouds and thunder

My home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only
I send my love to you

Well I’m on my way back and your love will bring me home (say that your love will bring me home)
I’m travelling fast and your love will bring me home (say your love will bring me home)
Will I discover that your love will bring me home? (dream away darlin’)
Will I discover that your love will bring me home? (yeah)

Somewhere ‘cross the desert
Some time in the early hours
To the orange side
Through the clouds and thunder

My home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only
I send my love to you

Home is where the heart is
Sweet to surrender to you only (sweet to surrender)
I send my love to you

Ooh, savannah song (sweet to surrender)
To you only
I send my love to you

Ooh, savannah song
To you only
To you only

STAR

We go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

You’ve got look real hard
There’s a fiery star hidden out there somewhere
Not the satellite of love but a laser shooting out it’s shiny tongue there

God is love, god is war
TV preacher tell me more
Lord redeem me, am I pure?
Pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money, sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

You’ve got look real hard
Is it in your heart? Yeah it’s in there somewhere
The power wrapped in your palm, show it to me, hit them with your wrath and thunder

What’s your pleasure? Tell it to me
How did you know? Show your beauty
In you somewhere, somewhere in me
Pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money, sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?
Yee-hah

Rolling along through a rose-coloured glow
The city looks pretty in pink
Armageddon is here

Did you ever have a lover leave you for another
And take your love and kisses for granted?
Never to discover war is not the answer, leave you only disenchanted

God is love, god is war (God is love, god is war)
TV preacher tell me more (God is pure as pure as heaven)
Father help me, am I pure?
Pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money, sent you flowers (God is love, god is war)
Could worship you for hours (God is pure as pure as heaven)
In whose hands are we anyway?

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

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

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

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?

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

TAKE A CHANCE ON ME

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, and I’ll be around
If you’ve got no place to go, when you’re feeling down

If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
Take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking
As long as we’re together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking
Get to know you better

‘Cause you know I’ve got so much that I wanna do
When I dream I’m alone with you, it’s magic!
You wanted to leave me there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know, that I can’t let go

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free, take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, and I’ll be around
If you’ve got no place to go, when you’re feeling down

If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
Take a chance on me

Oh you can take your time baby, I’m in no hurry
I know I’m gonna get ya
You don’t wanna hurt me, baby don’t worry
I ain’t gonna let ya

Let me tell you now: my love is strong enough
To last when things are rough, it’s magic!
You say that I waste my time, but I can’t get you off my mind
No I can’t let go, ’cause I love you so

Hopping in
If you like what you’re seeing take a chance with me, ya!
You won’t be grabbed, if you’re feeling horny
Well, you’ve passes so you got to know this precious property
I don’t know the lads, so call me MC K
Nobody sits, understand me clearly
However hard he try, could he never own me
We all fit nice and just move freely
Special K, what he says all said carefully
Me not sit all along and just wait by phone
Not call me ’cause me never, never home ya
Machinegun as we get the wrong one
Master Mark, master Paul, mister Luke and John
If we like what we see we chance a situation
Nothing don’t pay nothing, maybe see what follow on
What a Jill may do if the right man come?
Hey reggae boat, come we just have a little fun!
Go now!

Baba-ba-ba-ba, baba-baba-ba-baba
Honey I’m still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free, take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

I LOVE SATURDAY

If they’d ever have told me that I’d find true love in every way
Would I cry ’til tomorrow? Would I keep the non-believers away?

Remember that late night last September when you held me in your arms so tight?
I was feeling kind of low, my heart was blue, I was empty ’til you came

But oh what a Saturday night
Things were going right
As right as they’d ever been
I know that you love me

If they’d ever have told me that I’d find true love in every way
Would I cry ’til tomorrow? Would I keep the non-believers away?
Was I shy? Was I good? With this foolish heart?
Did I try to deny we would fall apart?

Like a knight in shining armor you came over to save me, what a bolt out of the blue
Just one look into those eyes you had me fallen completely head over heels in love with you

But oh what a Saturday night
Things were going right
As right as they’d ever been
I know that you love me

If they’d ever have told me that I’d find true love in every way
Would I cry ’til tomorrow? Would I keep the non-believers away?
Was I shy? Was I good? With this foolish heart?
Did I try to deny we would fall apart?

And you saw me, I was falling head over heels in love with you

Saturday night
Things were going right
As right as they’d ever been
I know that you love me

If they’d ever have told me that I’d find true love in every way
Would I cry ’til tomorrow? Would I keep the non-believers away?
Was I shy? Was I good? With this foolish heart?
Did I try to deny we would fall apart?
If they’d ever have told me that I’d find true love in every way
Would I cry ’til tomorrow? Would I keep the non-believers away?
Was I shy? Was I good? With this foolish heart?
Did I try to deny we would fall
Did I try to deny we would fall a
Did I try to deny we would fall apart?

RUN TO THE SUN

For the first time in my life I’m up to run away
It’s not a choice that I made easily

It’s not that I’m ashamed to face the light of day
It’s really just a case of self-delusion

And I know it ain’t easy
I know it ain’t easy
I know it ain’t easy
To see the truth

So run the sun, here’s one for the road
And may god’s love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa

That I should fall from grace implies a twist of fate
But I’m open to the joys and woes of passion

And who shall take the wheel when it’s time for overkill?
There’s no release when destiny is calling

And I know it ain’t easy
I know it ain’t easy
I know it ain’t easy
To see the truth

So run the sun, here’s one for the road
And may God’s love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa

So run to the sun, here’s one for the road
Though I’ll never be lonely
Are you so high above me?
Whoa

Run to the sun
Run to the sun
Run to the sun

And I know it ain’t easy
Somebody reach me
Willing to teach me

So run to the sun, here’s one for the road
And may god’s love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa

I’ll run to the sun, here’s one for the road
Though I’ll never be lonely
Are you so high above me?
Whoa

So run to the sun, here’s one for the road
And may god’s love go with you
My tears are starting to show
Whoa
So run to the sun, here’s one for the road
Though I’ll never be lonely
Are you so high above me?
Whoa

ALWAYS

Open your eyes, I see your eyes are open
Wear no disguise for me, come into the open

When it’s cold outside, am I here in vain?
Hold on to the night, there will be no shame

Always
I wanna be with you
And make believe with you
And live in harmony, harmony
Oh love

Always
I wanna be with you
And make believe with you
And live in harmony, harmony
Oh love

Melting the ice for me, jump into the ocean
Hold back the tide, I see your love in motion

When it’s cold outside, am I here in vain?
Hold on to the night, there will be no shame

Always
I wanna be with you
And make believe with you
And live in harmony, harmony
Oh love

Always
I wanna be with you
And make believe with you
And live in harmony, harmony
Oh love

When it’s cold outside, am I here in vain?
Hold on to the night, there will be no shame

Always
I wanna be with you
And make believe with you
And live in harmony, harmony
Oh love

Always
I wanna be with you
And make believe with you
And live in harmony, harmony
Oh love

FINGERS AND THUMBS (COLD SUMMER’S DAY)

Don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
A hint of a scent then it’s gone
Look at the state of you, you’re all fingers and thumbs

So who’s your latest flame?
Driving ’em wild in the fast lane?
Won’t say I told you so, but the boy has no shame

Once when my hands were full
We were double or quits then some
Nothing at all to show for a love so precious

Gone and blown it all
How can you say, ‘it doesn’t matter much to me’? A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love’s debris

Gone and blown it all
And then you say, ‘this can’t be happening to me’
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love’s debris

Don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
The thrill of the chase then it’s gone
Only the hurt to prove that it ever went on

And life is a wonderful thing
When you’re humming the words to a love song
Do what you wanna do, be who you want to be

When I’m in your arms I’m strong
There’s nowhere I’d rather be
We shine for liberty, life and the pursuit of pleasure

Gone and blown it all
How can you say, ‘it doesn’t matter much to me’?
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love’s debris

Gone and blown it all
And then you say, ‘this can’t be happening to me’
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love’s debris

And how the days have flown too few and fast
They said it wasn’t meant to last
A dumb mistake
Too much to pay
A shattered heart in love’s debris

STAY WITH ME

Tempered by greed, tall buildings breathe
Give a sigh of relief when it’s night
Stirring from sleep, we night owls creep
Is there any sign of life under this stone?

Star chime, hollow and true
Love child

Weep for me, and I will cast your wheels in motion
Walk with me the inner reaches of emotion

Sheltered by creed, one piled on one
Do you have a little room for one small one?

Light shine, wild and free
Sunrise

Weep for me, and I will set your wheels in motion
Keep with me, like a roller on the ocean
Stand by me, and I will fill you with devotion
Walk with me the inner reaches of emotion

Here we are, in the sunshine
Everything is fine
Here we are, in the sunshine
Everything is fine

Weep for me, and the sands of time will fill the ocean
Keep with me, ’till rays of sunshine fill the ocean
Walk with me the inner reaches of emotion
Stand by me, and I will fill you with devotion

Weep for me, and the sands of time will fill the ocean
Keep with me, like a roller on the ocean
Stand by me, and I will fill you with devotion
Walk with me the inner reaches of emotion
The sands of time will fill the ocean
Keep with me, and rays of sunshine will fill the ocean
Walk with me, the inner reaches of emotion

RAIN

What is there to do? Only rain
Falling down from the sky
Only me and you, fair and plain
Nothing lost and nothing gained

Only the love, nothing more, nothing less comes between us
Temperature’s rising, my passion is burning inside

My world in light saving all as one
A love that no one can deny
My one true light, same for everyone
A love we dare you to defy
Only rain

I won’t settle for less, but no regrets
See myself in your own reflection (See myself in your reflection)
Something in your eyes that tells me why
I’m a fool for your warm affection (I’m a fool for your affection)

Only the love, nothing more, nothing less comes between us
Temperature’s rising, my passion is burning inside

My world in light saving all as one
A love that no one can deny
My one true light, same for everyone
A love we dare you to defy
Only rain

You are my, my one true, my world in light
You are my, my one true, my world in light

DON’T SAY YOUR LOVE IS KILLING ME

My eyes are closed
And I’ve nothing more to say
But I was so willing to give it all away
And what a show
I’ve loved you all I could
When will I see you, is nothing understood?

You thought I was stupid, but now I stop at nothing (I stop at nothing)
I thought you were better but love’s gonna take a man
Yeah, love’s gonna take a man

Don’t say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

Heaven only knows
At your every turn a scandal
But how does it suit you
When it’s all too much to cope with?

You thought I was nothing before you stepped into my life
I thought you were clever, but love’s gonna take a man
And you haven’t got it in you

Don’t say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

Don’t say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

Don’t say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

IN MY ARMS

The deal is on the rise again
The ship comes in to shore
You’ve been away to somewhere
But life goes on no less

Through the foreign ocean
Underneath the sea

And walls come tumbling down
We’ll be forever calm
And you’ll be here in my arms
I’ll keep you away from harm

I thought about you twice just then
You get me every time
Keeps coming out of nowhere
It cannot be defined

Your colours are magnificent
From magenta to bright blue

And walls come tumbling down
We’ll be forever calm
And you’ll be here in my arms
I’ll keep you away from harm

Through the foreign ocean
Underneath the sea

And walls come tumbling down
We’ll be forever calm
And you’ll be here in my arms
I’ll keep you away from harm

FIRST CONTACT

That was the first time
I saw you in the undergrowth
You only heard the voices in the wind

Then came the next time
They called me to the great unknown
A transformation changing everything

Metamorphosis

It was my first and only
