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

SUPERNATURE

Once upon a time
Science opened up the door
We would feed the hungry fields
Til they couldn’t eat no more

But the potions that we made
Touched the creatures down below
And they grew up in a way
That we’d never seen before

Supernature, supernature
Supernature, supernature

They were angry with the man
Cause changed their way of life
And they take their sweet revenge
As they trample through the night

For hundred miles or more
You could hear the people cry
But there is nothing you can do
Even God is on their side

(God is on, God is on, God is on their side)

Supernature, supernature
Supernature, supernature

Cars will break the light
Come flowing in the air
The creature will decide
Who goes where

How can I explain
Things are different today
Darkness all around
No one makes a sound
Such a sad affair
No one seems to care

Supernature, supernature
Supernature, supernature

Better watch out
There’s no way to stop it now
You can’t escape
It’s too late
Look what you’ve done
There’s no place that you can run
The monsters made
We must pray

Maybe nature has a plan
To control the ways of man
He must start from scratch again
Many battles must he win

Til he earns his place on earth
Like the other creatures do
Will there be a happy end
Now that all depends on you

Supernature, supernature
Supernature, supernature
Supernature, supernature
Supernature, supernature
