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?

THE SOLDIER’S RETURN

Slow the years go by
They stole your man off to war
Will you see the child
As you sing battle songs?

And it pains me
To think of the soldier’s plight
I will pray
For your god to guide you home

And she cries for the soldier’s return
Despair at feeling alone for so long
By the light of the candle that burns
For his life for the day of the soldier’s return

Hear the cannon fire
Lost voices echo in the night
See the spoils of war
Young men are falling, ooh

Hear the drummer
Marching over the hill
Love returning
And the graves of the battle lie still

And she cries for the soldier’s return
Despair at feeling alone for so long
By the light of the candle that burns
For his life for the day of the soldier’s return

Hear the drummer
Marching over the hill
Love returning
And the graves of the battle lie still

And she cries for the soldier’s return
Despair at feeling alone for so long
By the light of the candle that burns
For his life for the day of the soldier’s return
Young men are falling

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

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?

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
