Always

 

Dreams will all come true

Being here with you

And time will fly

Caring each day more

Than the day before

Till spring rolls by

And when the springtime has gone

Will my love linger on

 

'Cause I'll be loving you

Always

With a love that's true

Always

When the things that you plan

Need a helping hand

I will understand

Always, always

 

Days may not be fair

Always

But that's when I'll be there

Always

Not for just an hour

No, no, not for just a day

Not for just a year

Oh but always

 

 

Days may not be fair

Always

But that's when I'll be there

Always

Not for just an hour

No, no, not for just a day

Not for just a year

Oh but always

 

 

Until forever is through

Until there's just me and you

Always

Oh always

High Flying Angel

While the city starts to sleep
She's watching over you
Smoke hangs on the downtown skyline
Moon pushes through
But some people's on fire tonight
Wind rushing round their feet
Someone's gonna sleep well tonight
Word is on the street

So high flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly here tonight

It's a tribal thing we're seeing
War paint on the face
A question of territory, pride and space
People strutting and feathers flying
It's a sorry scene
Someone's sleeping well tonight
Word is on the street

So high flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly here tonight

Brother, my brother
Don't let me down again
Mother oh mother
Wipe away your tears again

High flying bird embraced him
Held him to her breast
Soft feathers brushed his face
Finally came to rest
Gently rocking him to and fro
He quietly went to sleep
Someone's found a place of peace tonight
Word is on the street
So high flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly away tonight

High flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly safe tonight

In The Air Tonight

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment, all my life, Oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, Oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, Oh Lord, Oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment all my life, Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well I remember, I remember don't worry
How could I ever forget, it's the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don't fool me
The hurt doesn't show; but the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord...

I Missed Again

So you finally came right out and said it girl
What took you so long
It was in your eyes, that look's been there for too long
I'm waiting in line
Would you say if I was wasting my time

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oh

I think about it from time to time
When I'm lonely and on my own

I try to forget and yet, still rush to the telephone
I'm waiting in line
Would you say if I was wasting my time

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oh
Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oh

Well it feels like something you want so bad
Then you think you've got it, but it's something you already had
You can feel it all around you, but it's something you just can't touch
And I feel it coming at me
I can feel it coming at me

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oh
Or did I miss again
I think I missed again

I'm waiting in line, but would you say if I was wasting my time

Or did I miss again...

I Don´t Care Anymore

Well you can tell ev'ryone I'm a down disgrace
Drag my name all over the place.
I don't care anymore.
You can tell ev'rybody 'bout the state I'm in
You won't catch me crying 'cos I just can't win.
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care what you say
I don't play the same games you play.
'Cos I've been talking to the people that you call your friends

And it seems to me there's a means to and end.

They don't care anymore. And as for me I can sit here and bide my time

I got nothing to lose if I speak my mind. I don't care anymore I don't care no more
I don't care what you say We never played by the same rules anyway.
I won't be there anymore
Get out of my way
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
I don't care anymore I don't care anymore
Well, I don't care now what you say
'Cos ev'ry day I'm feeling fine with myself
And I don't care now what you say
Hey I'll do alright by myself
'Cos I know.
'Cos I remember all the times I tried so hard
And you laughed in my face 'cos you held all the cards.
I don't care anymore.
And I really ain't bothered what you think of me
'Cos all I want of you is just a let me be.
I don't care anymore D'you hear? I don't care no more
I don't care what you say
I never did believe you much anyway.
I won't be there no more
So get out of my way.
Let me by
I got better things to do with my time
I don't care anymore
D'you hear? I don't care anymore
I don't care no more
You listening? I don't care no more
No more!
You know I don't care no more!

You Can´t Hurry Love

I need love, love
ooh, ease my mind
And I need to find time
someone to call mine

My mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
But it's a game of give and take
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes

How many heartaches must I stand
Before I find the love to let me live again
Right now the only thing that keeps me hanging on
when I feel my strength, ooh, it's almost gone

I remember mama said
You can't hurry love
No you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take
How long must I wait
How muck more must I take
Before loneliness
Will cause my heart, heart to break?

No, I cant bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can't go on
Well these precious words keep me hanging on

I remember mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
Well, it's a game of give and take
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes, now break!

Now love, love don't come easy
But I keep on waiting
Anticipating for that soft voice
To talk to me at night
For some tender arms
hold me tight
I keep waiting
Ooh, till that day
But it ain't easy (Love don't come easy)
No, you know it ain't easy

My mama said
You can't hurry love
No, you'll just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take...

Don´t Let Him Steal Your Heart Away

You were lonely and you needed a friend
And he was there at the right time with the right smile
Just a shoulder to lean on
Someone to tell you it'll all work out alright

Don't let him steal your heart away
No, don't let him steal your heart away
Don't let him steal your heart away
No, don't let him steal your heart away

You can look at him the way you did me
And hold him close say you're never letting go
But any fool can see you're fooling yourself
But you ain't fooling me

So don't let him steal your heart away
No, don't let him steal your heart away

And don't pack my suitcase, I'll be back
And don't take my pictures off a' the wall
Oh, did you hear me?
Don't let him change a thing 'cos I'll be back
Jus tell him to pack his things and get out of your life
And just give me one more chance
I'll show you I'm right, I'm right

'Cos I've been thinking and I know it was me leaving you lonely
But hoping you could be strong
But could you look at me straight
Tell me what else can I do but say I was wrong?

So don't let him steal your heart away
No, don't let him steal your heart away

Well he's gonna try to make it work for you
Make you think your whole life's been leading to this
But whatever you do
Think about me and don't be fooled by his kiss

And don't let him steal your heart away
Please, don't let him steal your heart away

And don't pack my suitcase, I'll be back
And don't take my pictures off a' your wall
Oh, did you hear me?
Don't let him change a thing 'cos I'll be back
Jus tell him to pack his things and get out of your life
And just give me one more chance
I'll show you I'm right
You know I'm right

You were lonely and you needed a friend
And he was there at the right time with the right smile
Just a shoulder to lean on
Someone to say don't you worry it'll all be alright
But he's no good for you
He'll make you think your whole life's been leading to this
And whatever you do
Think about me, oh, and don't be fooled by his kiss

Sussudio

There's this girl that's been on my mind
All the time, Sussudio oh oh
Now she don't even know my name
But I think she likes me just the same
Sussudio oh oh

Oh if she called me I'd be there
I'd come running anywhere
She's all I need, all my life
I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio, just say the word
Oh Sussudio

Now I know that I'm too young
My love has just begun
Sussudio oh oh
Ooh give me a chance, give me a sign
I'll show her anytime
Sussudio oh oh

Ah, I've just got to have her, have her now
I've got to get closer but I don't know how
She makes me nervous and makes me scared
But I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio just say the word
Oh Sussudio, oh

Ah, she's all I need all of my life
I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio I just say the word
Oh Sussudio I just say the word
Oh Sussudio I'll say the word
Sussudio oh oh oh
Just say the word

Long Long Way To Go

While I sit here trying to think of things to say
Someone lies bleeding in a field somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go
I've seen all I wanna see today

While I sit here trying to move you anyway I can
Someone's son lies dead in a gutter somewhere
And it would seem that we've got a long long way to go
But I can't take it anymore

Turn it off if you want to.
Switch it off it will go away
Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off or look away

While I sit and we talk and talk and we talk some more
Someone's loved one's heart stops beating in a street somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go, I know
I've heard all I wanna hear today

Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off it will go away (switch it off it will go away)
Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off or look away (switch it off or look away)

Switch it off
Turn it off

One More Night

One more night, one more night
I've been trying ooh so long to let you know
Let you know how I feel
And if I stumble if I fall, just help me back
So I can make you see

Please give me one more night, give me one more night
One more night cos I can't wait forever
Give me just one more night, oh just one more night
Oh one more night cos I can't wait forever

I've been sitting here so long
Wasting time, just staring at the phone
And I was wondering should I call you
Then I thought maybe you're not alone

Please give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can't wait forever
Please give me one more night, ooh just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can't wait forever
Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can't wait forever

Like a river to the sea
I will always be with you
And if you sail away
I will follow you

Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can't wait forever
I know there'll never be a time you'll ever feel the same
And I know it's only words
But if you change your mind you know that I'll be here
And maybe we both can learn

Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can't wait forever
Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can't wait forever

Don´t Lose My Number

They came at night leaving fear behind
Shadows were on the ground
Nobody knew where to find him
No evidence was found
"I'm never coming back"
They heard him cry
And I believe him
Well he never meant to do anything wrong
It's gonna get worse if he waits too long

Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you
Oh now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh no

Searching through the day and into the night
They wouldn't stop till they found him
They didn't know him and they didn't understand
They never asked him why
"Get out of my way"
They heard him shout
Then a blinding light
Ooh all I could see was him running down the street
Out of the shadows and into the night

Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you, oh
Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh

Don't give up
Keep running, keep hiding
Don't give up
Billy, if you know you're right
Don't give up
You know that I am on your side
Don't give up
Oh Billy, you better, you better, you better run for your life

Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you, oh
Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh

They came at night leaving fear behind
Shadows were on the ground
Nobody knew where to find him
No evidence was found
"I'm never coming back"
They heard him cry
And I believe him
He never meant to do anything wrong
It's gonna get worse if he waits too long

Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you, oh
Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh

Take Me Home

Take that look of worry
I'm an ordinary man
They don't tell me nothing
So I find out what I can
There's a fire that's been burning
Right outside my door
I can't see but I feel it
And it helps to keep me warm
So I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

Seems so long I've been waiting
Still don't know what for
There's no point escaping
I don't worry anymore
I can't come out to find you
I don't like to go outside
They can't turn off my feelings
Like they're turning off a light
But I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind
Oh I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Cos I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

Take that look of worry, mine's an ordinary life
Working when it's daylight
And sleeping when it's night
I've got no far horizons
I don't wish upon a star
They don't think that I listen
Oh but I know who they are
And I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind
Oh I, I don't mind
No I, I don't mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don't remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Well I've been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

But I don't remember
Take, take me home...

Hang In Long Enough

The signs are getting clearer, clearer than you need
The writing's on the wall, for you to see

You never thought you'd ever get the taste
You never thought that it could be this good
Just tell me what you want and I'll find the key
Reach out and touch it's all yours.

If you hang in long enough, you'll do it
Just hang in long enough

You're down on the ground, or so you say
You'd sell the hole in your pocket, if you could find a way
Don't ask me how I know, you don't wanna hear
It's been a long hard road, and the end is getting near.

You never thought you'd ever get the chance
You never thought your break would come along
If you tell me what you want, I'll find the key
Just reach out and touch it's all yours

If you hang in...

They always say
The best things in life are free
But you want to have everything
Well you're going to have to beg if you want it all.

So hang in long enough, you'll do it
Hang in long enough

They'll let you out, then pull you in
Playing hell with your emotions,
You'll feel like giving in.

So just hang in long enough...

That´s Just The Way It Is

All day long he was fighting for you
And he didn't even know your name
Young men come and young men go
But life goes on just the same

And I don't know why
Why do we keep holding on
I don't know why
Pretending to be oh so strong
Oh why
Is there something I don't know
Or something very wrong, with you and me
or maybe

That's the way it is, there's nothing I can do,
That's just the way it is.

They've been waiting for word to come down
They've been waiting for you night and day
They won't wait any longer for you
It may already be too late

And I don't know why...

You see the dying, you feel the pain
What have you got to say
If we agree that we can disagree
We could stop all of this today

It's been your life for as long as you can remember
But you cannot fight no more
You must want to look your son in the eyes
When he asks you what you did it for

'Cos all day long he was fighting for you
And he didn't even know your name
Young men come and young men go
But life goes on just the same

I don't know why...

Do You Remember

We never talked about it
But I hear the blame was mine
I'd call you up to say I'm sorry
But I wouldn't want to waste your time

'Cos I love you, but I can't take any more
There's a look I can't describe in your eyes
Yes we could try, like we tried before
When you kept on telling me those lies

Do you remember...?

There seemed no way to make up
'Cos it seemed your mind was set
And the way you looked it told me
It's a look I know I'll never forget

You could've come over to my side
You could've let me know
You could've tried to see the difference between us
But it seemed too far for you to go.

Do you remember...?

Through all of my life
In spite of all the pain
You know people are funny sometimes
'cos they just can't wait
To get hurt again

Do you remember...?

There are things we won't recall
Feelings we'll never find
It's taken so long to see it
Cos we never seemed to have the time

There was always something more important to do
More important to say
But "I love you" wasn't one of those things
And now it's too late

Do you remember...?

Something Happened On The Way To Heaven

We had a life, we had a love,
But you don't know what you've got 'til you lose it
Well that was then and this is now
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I'm sorry

I only wanted someone to love
But something happened on the way to heaven
It got a hold of me and wouldn't let go
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I'm sorry

You can run, and you can hide
But I'm not leaving less you come with me
We've had our problems but I'm on your side
You're all I need, please believe in me

How can something so good go so bad
How can something so right go so wrong
I don't know, I don't have all the answers
But I want you back
How many times can I say I'm sorry

They say you can't take it with you
When you go
And I believe it
But taking what I've got or being
here with you, you know
I'd rather leave it

You can run...

Another Day In Paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
"Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?"

He walks on, doesn't look back
He pretends he can't hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh think twice, it's another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
Can't walk but she's trying

Oh think twice...

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she's been there
Probably been moved on from every place
'Cos she didn't fit in there

Oh think twice...

Against All Odds

How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You're the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me, when all I can do is watch you leave
'Cos we've shared the laughter and the pain, and even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that's what I've got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around, turn around and see me cry
There's so much I need to say to you, so many reasons why
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
And there's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now, 'cos there's just an empty space
But to wait for you, well that's all I can do and that's what I've got to face
Take a good look at me now, 'cos I'll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
That's the chance I've got to take, oh, oho

Just take a look at me now

Separate Lives

You called me from the room in your hotel
All thru romancing with someone that you'd met
And telling me how sorry you were, leavin' so soon
And that you miss me sometimes, when you're alone in your room
Do I feel lonely too?

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
We can't go on, holding on to time
So for now, we'll go on living separate lives

Well I have all to let you go
And if you lost your love for me, you never let it show, oh no
There was no way to compromise
So now we're living - now we're living - separate lives

Ooh, it's so difficult, love leads to isolation
So you build that wall - you build that wall
Yes you build that wall - oh yes, you build that wall
And you make it stronger - no

You have no right to ask me how I feel - oh no
You have no right to speak to me so kind
Some day I might - I just might - find myself looking in your eyes
But for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Yes for now, we'll go on living separate lives
Oooh, seperate lives

Two Hearts

Well there was no reason to believe she'd always be there
But if you don't put faith in what you're believin', it's getting nowhere
And it teaches you to never give up, don't look down, just look up
'Cos she's always there behind you, just to remind you

Two hearts believing in just one mind
You know it, two hearts believing in just one mind

Well there was no easy way to, to understand it
'Cos there's so much of my love in her, as I've got plenty
And it teaches you to never let go, there's so much love you'll never know
'Cos she can reach you, no matter how far, wherever you are

Two hearts believing in just one mind
Beating together till the end of time
You know it, two hearts believing in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time

Well she knows, there'll always be a special place in my heart for her
She knows, she knows, she knows
Yeah she knows, no matter how far apart we go, she knows
I'm always right there beside her

With two hearts believing in just one mind
Beating together till the end of time
You know it, two hearts, but believing in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time

A Groovy Kind Of Love

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When you're close to me, I can feel your heart beat
I can hear you breathing in my ear

Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me, we've got a groovy kind of love

Any time you want to, you can turn me on to
Anything you want to, any time at all
When I kiss your lips, ooh I start to shiver
Can't control the quivering inside

Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me, we've got a groovy kind of love, oho

(Solo)

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When I'm in your arms, nothing seems to matter
My whole world could shatter, I don't care

Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me, we've got a groovy kind of love
We've got a groovy kind of love, we've got a groovy kind of love
Oho, we've got a groovy kind of love

Easy Lover

Easy lover, she'll get a hold on you, believe it
She's like no other, before you know it, you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover, she'll take your heart, but you won't feel it
She's like no other, and I'm just trying to make you see

She's the kind of girl you dream of, dream of getting hold of
You'd better forget it, you'll never get it
'Cos she'll play around and leave you, leave you and deceive you
You'd better forget it, ooh, you'll regret it

Now don't try to change it, just leave it, just leave it
Get out quick, 'cos seein' is believin'
It's the only way she'll ever know

She's an easy lover, she'll get a hold on you, believe it
She's like no other, before you know it, you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover, she'll take your heart, but you won't feel it
She's like no other, and I'm just trying to make you see

You're the one who wants to hold her, hold her and control her
You'd better forget it - I can't forget it, no - you'll never get it
'Cos she'll say that there's no other, till she finds another
You'd better forget it - oh no, no, no, no, no - you will regret it

Listen here
Now don't try to change it, just leave it, just leave it
You're not the only one and seein' is believin'
It's the only way she'll ever know, aha

(On the electric guitar, ladies and gentlemen, mr. Daryl Stuermer)

(Solo)

Don't try to change it, just leave it, just leave it
You're not the only one and seein' is believin'
It's the only way she'll ever know

She's an easy lover - she's an easy lover
She'll get a hold on you, believe it
She's like no other, before you know it, you'll be on your knees
(You'll be down on your knees)
She's an easy lover, she'll take your heart, but you won't feel it
(You won't feel it, no no)
She's like no other - yeah - I'm just trying to make you see
(I'm trying to make you see, oh yeah)
She's an easy lover, she'll get a hold on you, believe it
(Oh, you'd better believe it)
She's like no other, and I'm just trying to make you see
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah yeah!

Both Sides

Find yourself in the gutter in a lonely part of town
where death waits in the darkness with a weapon to cut some stranger down
sleeping with an empty bottle, he's a sad and an empty hearted man
all he needs is a job, and a little respect, so he can get out while he can

We always need to hear both sides of the story

A neighbourhood peace is shattered it's the middle of the night
young faces hide in the shadows, while they watch their mother and father fight
he says she's been unfaithful, she says her love for him has gone
and the brother shrugs to his sister and says "looks like it's just us from now on"

We always need to hear both sides of the story

And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
people looking for truth, we must not fail them now
be sure, before we close our eyes
don't walk away from here
'til you hear both sides

Here we are all gathered in what seems to be the centre of the storm
neighbours once friendly now stand each side of the line that has been drawn
they've been fighting here for years, but now there's killing on the streets
while small coffins are lined up sadly, now united in defeat

We always need to hear both sides of the story

And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
people looking for truth, we must not fail them now
be sure, before we close our eyes
don't walk away from here
'til you see both sides

White man turns the corner, finds himself within a different world
ghetto kid grabs his shoulder, throws him up against the wall
he says "would you respect me if I didn't have this gun
'cos without it, I don't get it, and that's why I carry one"

We always need to hear both sides of the story

Can´t Turn Back The Years

Could've given you everything that you need
but I cannot turn back the years
The perfect love was all you wanted from me
but I cannot turn back the years

So we have to be strong, and I'm finding that hard
we have to move on, but no matter how hard I try
if your heart's in pieces, you look for the truth
and when I look deep down inside I know, it's too bad I love you

Sometimes. hits me in the morning, hits me at night
that I cannot turn back the years
so I look out my window, turn off my light
but I cannot turn back the years

Can't make it seem easy, when you're all that I see
can't live in a dream and I won't serenade the truth
people are hurting and they're looking to me
and I look at you there's nothing more to say, it's too bad I love you

But I'm never gonna give it up

All that I lived for, all that I dreamed
but I cannot turn back the years
You're the water i drink, you're the air that I breathe
but i cannot turn back the years

So we have to be strong, and I'm finding that hard
we have to move on, but no matter how hard I try
if your heart's in pieces, you look for the truth
and when I look deep down inside I know, it's too bad I love you

But I'm never gonna give it up

Everyday

I got lost, couldn't find my way
and I guess there's nothing more to say
love can make you blind, make you act so strange
but I'm here and here I will stay

So everyday I cry
yes everyday I fall
do you ever wonder why, why I love everything about you

But everyday I say I'll try to make my heart be still
'til then every way there is to cry, ourselves to sleep we will

It picked me up, knocked me off my feet
I've got no way to explain
still I love you, love you, love you but this fire inside
will never see the light of day

So everyday goes by
and everyday I fall
it makes me wonder why,
my life's worth nothing without you

But everyday I say I'll try
to make my heart be still
'cos every way there is to cry,
ourselves to sleep, we will

You'll never know, no, no, no ,no ,no
you'll never know just how close we were
you'll never know, no, no, no ,no ,no
you'll never know
no you'll never see

The book closes and we try to forget
but I know that things won't change
how we feel, how life goes on
and that seems so strange

And so the light fades away
try, try, try as I may
I can't stop thinking about you
it seems my life's worth nothing without you

But everyday I say I'll try
to make my heart be still
'til then every way there is to cry,
ourselves to sleep, we will

Everyday, everyday you know I try so hard
everyday, everyday it gets a little harder

We Wait And We Wonder

We stand, hang our heads disbelieving
then not knowing how could such a thing be wrong
we wonder just what they must be thinking
to take a life of one so young

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
how far must we go, to prove to you?

We wait and we wonder how this happened
killing the old, the innocent, the young
while sons follow in fathers footsteps not understanding
that what they do could somehow be so wrong

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
how far must we go, to prove to you?

So we will wait and we'll wonder

No regrets, no forgiveness, no compasssion
these brave heroes only know to hit and run
slowly my sadness turns to rage and we wonder
how can these scars ever heal, when all is said and done

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
how many tears must fall to prove to you?
please tell me, when will it be over now, how soon?
and how far must they go, to prove to you?

So we wait and we wonder

Dance Into The Light

It's there in the eyes of the children
In the faces smiling in the windows
You can come on out, out of the door
Brush away the tears of freedom

Now, we're here, there's no turning back
We have each other
We have one voice

Hand in hand we will lay the tracks
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

There'll be no more hiding in shadows of fear
There'll be no more chairs to hold you
The future is yours - you hold the key
And there are no walls with freedom

Now, we'e here, we don't wanna go back
We are one world
We have one voice

Side by side we are not alone
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

You see the sun - it's a brand new day
Oh, the wand's in your hands, now use it
What's past is past, don't turn around
Brush away the cobwebs of freedom

Now, we're here, there's no turning back
You have each other
You have one voice

Hand in hand you can lay the tracks
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

Lorenzo

Once upon a time I made a lion roar
He was sleeping in the sunbeam on the old zoo floor.
I had gone to see the park where my papa used to play,
It's called Villa Borghese and it's on the way
To East Africa.

Down on Grand Comoro Island, where I grew past four,
I could swin and fish and snorkel on the ocean floor,
And the wind laughed, and the wind laughed through the trees as if to say,
Here's a child who'll want the world to go his way
in East Africa, in East Africa.

Suddenly for me the world turned upside down
Far from my friends the lions and the dolphins came this awful sound.

Dark shadows, sounds of thunder raging over me,
Came this monster called 'A-dre-no-leu-ko-dys-tro-phy'
Where's my East Africa?

Well, they said, they said they said (the ones who know it all)
They said from now on for you there will be no more standing tall,
So I took my parent's hands, I lifted my head to say
I'll just have to be a hero, there's no other way!
Back to East Africa
Back to East Africa
Back to East Africa
Come with me I'm going back to East Africa.

Wear My Hat

She came looking for me with her arms open wide,
Like some long lost frined of mine.

She said 'Excuse me, but do you remember me?'
I said 'No, I don't believe I do.'
So she looked me up and down
And undresserd me with her eyes,
Then she said 'You've got everything I need, you've got
everything I want.'

So I said 'OK,

You can wear my heat,
You can have my coat,
You can take my shirt
'Cos I don't need it.
You can wear my shoes,
You can take my socks,
Come on take my bag it's yours.

If you love it,
You can have it if you love it,
Ain't no problem if you love it,
Come on take it if you love it.

So her friend came up to me
With a pen and a paper in her hand,
Expressing some interest in the number of my room.
She said 'Excuse me, but do you remembre me?'
I said 'No', she said 'Can I appeal to you?'

So I looked her up and down
And realising her insinuations I blushed
She said 'Listen babe you don't know me,
No you don't know me, but you owe me,

And I love you,
Yes I love you
Put your arms around me 'cos I love you,
I got all your records and I love you.'

So I suggested

You can wear my heat,
You can have my coat,
You can take my shirt
'Cos I don't need it.
You can wear my shoes,
You can take my socks,
Come on take my bag it's yours.

If you love it,
You can have it if you love it,
I got no problem if you love it,
Come on take it if you love it.

Well later that day this guy came to me
with a scrap of paper in his hand
He said 'Hey buddy can you sign your name for me?'
I said 'Why, do I owe you money?' He said 'No'
I said 'Listen pal do I know you? Have we ever met?
Why do you want my name on this little piee of paper?

He said 'I love you,
I don't know but I love you,
Like my brother I love you,
Put your arms arond me 'cos I love you'.

I said 'Hey let's not rush things

You can wear my heat,
You can have my coat,
You can take my shirt
'Cos I don't need it.
You can wear my shoes,
You can take my socks,
Come on take my bag it's yours.

If you love it,
You can have it if you love it,
Ain't no problem if you love it,
Come on take it if you love it.

You can wear my hat,
You can wear my hat,
You can wear my hat,
Come on wear my hat.'

It´s In Your Eyes

It's in your eyes,
the love you hide away.
You can't disgiuse
The things you feel, the things you say.

If you just call my name
Any time at all, I'll be there.

I don't know why,
The way you're falling away from me.
I can't desribe
It's how it feels, it's what I see.

If you just call my name,
Anytime at all,
Anytime at all,
Anytime at all, I'll be there

I look around, all I see is you
But you gotta tell me that you want me too.
Look at me, you're all that I need, it's true.

I'm here, just call my name
anytime at all, I'll be there.

I look around, all I see is you
But you gotta tell me that you want me too.
Look at me, you're all that I need, it's true.

I can't disguise
The love I wait for you to share
I can't deny
If you reah out and and touh my hand it's there.

Or just call my name,
Anytime at all,
Anytime at all,
Anytime at all, I'll be there.

Take Me Down

Seems I've lain here too long in the darkness
Unlock the door and turn the light on and wait
I should know better than to rest on a promise
This body before you has seen too much pain

Take me down
Take me down to the water
Take my hand
Hand me all I should know
Here I am
And I'm waiting for you
Just give me a sign
Feet please don't fail me now

It's at this time we feel the emotion
Nothing is wasted, nothing is lost
I'm sure that I've been here before sometime
Some bridges are reached but some never are crossed

Take me down
Take me down to the water
Take my hand
Hand me all I should know
Here I am
And I'm waiting for you
Just give me a sign
Don't let me go

Take me down
Take me down to the water
Take my hand
Hand me all I should know
Here I am
And I'm waiting for you
Just give me a sign
Feet please don't fail me now

Don't fail me now, cause it out of my control
I'm coming with you
I'm right beside you
Oh feet don't fail me now

Seems I've lain here too long in the darkness
Unlock the door and turn the light on and wait for me
I should know better than to rest on a promise
This body before you has seen too much pain

Take me down
Take me down to the water
Take my hand
Hand me all I should know
Here I am
And I'm waiting for you
Just give me a sign
Don't let me go

Take me down
Take me down to the water
Take my hand
Hand me all I should know
Here I am
And I'm waiting for you
Just give me a sign
Feet don't fail me now

The Times They Are A-Changin´

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam,
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown,
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If you time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophecise with your pen
And keep your eyes wide,
The chance won't come again,
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin',
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, ongressmen,
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway,
Don't block the hall,
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled,
There's a battle
Outside and it's ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land,
And don't critiise
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command,
Your old road is
Rapidly agin',
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line is drawn,
The curse is cast,
The slow one now will
Later be fast,
as the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin',
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

You´ll Be In My Heart

Come stop your crying,
It'll be all right.
Just take my hand,
Hold it tight.
I will protect you
From all around you.
I will be here,
Don't you cry.

For one so small,
You seem so strong.
My arms will hold you,
Keep you safe and warm.
This bond between us
Can't be broken.
I will be here,
Don't you cry.

'Cause you'll be in my heart.
Yes, you'll be in my heart.
From this day on,
Now and forever more.

You'll be in my heart,
No matter what they say.
You'll be here
In my heart, always.

Why can't they understand
The way we feel?
They just don't trust
What they can't explain.
I know we're different but,
Deep inside us,
We're not that different at all.

And you'll be in my heart.
Yes, you'll be in my heart.
From this day on,
Now and forever more.

Don't listen to them,
'Cause what do they know?
We need each other,
To have, to hold.
They'll see in time.
I know.

When destiny calls you,
You must be strong.
(You gotta be strong)
I may not be with you,
But you've got to hold on.
They'll see in time.
I know.
We'll show them together,

'Cause you'll be in my heart.
(Believe me)
You'll be in my heart.
(I'll be there)
From this day on,
Now and forever more.

Uuuh, you'll be in my heart,
(You'll be here in my heart)
No matter what they say.
(I'll be with you)
You'll be here in my heart,
(I'll be there) always.
Always.
I'll be with you...
I'll be there for you always,
Always and always.

Just look over your shoulder...
(x3)
And I'll be there
Always

Can´t Stop Loving You

So you're leaving in the morning on the early train
I could say everything's alright
And I could pretend and say goodbye
Got your ticket
Got your suitcase
Got your leaving smile
I could say that's the way it goes
And I could pretend and you won't know
That I was lying

Cause I can't stop loving you
No I can't stop loving you
No I won't stop loving you
Why should I?

We took a taxi to the station, not a word was said
And I saw you walk across the road
For maybe the last time I don't know
Feeling humble
I heard a rumble
On the railway track
And when I hear that whistle blow
I'll walk away and you won't know
That I'll be crying

Cause I can't stop loving you
No I can't stop loving you
No I won't stop loving you
Why should I?

Even try ??I'll always be here by your side
Why, why, why ??I never wanted to say goodbye
Why even try ?.I'm always here if you change, change your mind

So you 're leaving in the morning on the early train
I could say everything's alright
And I could pretend and say goodbye
But that would be lying

Cause I can't stop loving you
No I can't stop loving you
No I won't stop loving you
Why should I even try?

Come With Me

I'll try to make the sun shine brighter for you
I will even play the fool if it makes you smile
I'll try to make you laugh if there's a tear in your eye
After all is said
After all is done
I'd do anything for you

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it'll be alright
Don't be scared, don't be shy
Lift your head it's gonna be alright

I'll try to make the stars shine brighter for you
And I'll take you on my shoulders, hold you way up high
I'll even chase the rainbow hanging in the sky
COs after all is said
After all is done
I'd do anything for you

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it'll be alright
Don't be scared, don't be shy
Lift your head it's gonna be alright

Through the eyes of innocence
You will find, you will see
There'll come a time it all makes sense
And you won't know, but it will show inside, deep inside

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it'll be alright
Don't be scared, don't be shy
Lift your head it's gonna be alright

I'll try to make the days last longer for you
From the daybreak, 'til the sunset, 'til the end of time
I'll keep you safe, away from the heartache
COs when all is said
And when all is done
I'd do anything for you

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it'll be alright
Don't be scared, don't be shy
Lift your head it's gonna be alright

Driving Me Crazy

No matter where you go I'll be there
No matter where you hide I'll find you
I'll be there looking through the window watching everything you do
There's no escaping me
I'll be like your worst enemy
I'm right behind you every place you run to I'll be there with you

COs being without you is driving me crazy
Oh I just don't know what to do
Yes being without you is driving me crazy
COs all I want is you ?.
And I like it

If all the world's a stage and we are,
We're only just two crazy players
Please understand why I just can't go on without you anymore
There's no escaping me
I want you back, can't you see
I'm losing all control and cannot guarantee my sanity

COs being without you is driving me crazy
And I don't know what to do
Yes being without you is driving me crazy
COs all I want is you
Being without you is driving me crazy
I don't know how long I'll last
Being without you is driving me crazy
Feel my pulse it's going so fast

You, you're driving me crazy
Me, I'm out of my mind
You, you're making me crazy
Me, I'm running out of time

I am your conscience, I'm your guide
I know just what you feel inside
I share your darkest thoughts with you but share no consequences for them
There's no escaping me
I'm with you while you sleep
I hear your lies, I hear your truth
I hear you speak before you do

But being without you is driving me crazy
and I don't know what to do
Yes being without you is driving me crazy
COs all I want is you
Being without you is driving me crazy
I don't know how long I'll last
Being without you is driving me crazy
Feel my pulse it's going so fast

Son Of Man

Oh, the power to be strong
And the wisdom to be wise
All these things will
come to you in time
On this journey that you're making
There'll be answers that you'll seek
And it's you who'll climb the mountain
It's you who'll reach the peak

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

Though there's no one there to guide you
No one to take your hand
But with faith and understanding
You will journey from boy to man

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

In learning you will teach
And in teaching you will learn
You'll find your place beside the
ones you love
Oh, and all the things you dreamed of
The visions that you saw
Well, the time is drawing near now
It's yours to claim in all

Son of Man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you'll walk tall with pride
Son of Man, a man in time you'll be

Son of Man,
Son of Man's a man for all to see

Strangers Like Me

Whatever you do, I'll do it too
Show me everything and tell me how
It all means something
And yet nothing to me

I can see there's so much to learn
It's all so close and yet so far
I see myself as people see me
Oh, I just know there's something bigger out there

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these
strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something's familiar about these strangers like me

Every gesture, every move that she makes
Makes me feel like never before
Why do I have
This growing need to be beside her

Ooo, these emotions I never knew
Of some other world far beyond this place
Beyond the trees, above the clouds
I see before me a new horizon

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something's familiar about these strangers like me

Come with me now to see my world
Where there's beauty beyond your dreams
Can you feel the things I feel
Right now, with you
Take my hand
There's a world I need to know

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something's familiar about these strangers like me

...I wanna know

Swing Low

The sun is rising in the sky
Here we're waiting, standing by
Round in circles, round and round
Pulse is racing, can't sit down
The noise of people fills the air
Search for silence goes nowhere
Time just passes, starts to rain
I look at you and I feel your pain

Day after day watching it grow, counting the time
In each and every way the pleasure is mine
Through all of the high times
Through all of the low times
The farther we reach, the farther we see
The farther we go

Time after time waiting for you, when will you come
Wanting to play the game we've begun
Through all of the high times
Through all of the low times
The more we can give, the more we can keep
The more there will be

Like the man said he was right
'bout something coming in the air tonight
Well if it's coming, let it be now
I feel it's close, I just know somehow
I can't hold on much longer
My head is filled with wonder
But if these things don't come to pass
I'll bring you water and fill your glass

Everyday the stronger it grows, it's easy to see
Getting to feel how good it can be
Through all of the high times
Through all of the low times
The more that we teach, the better we learn
The better we'll be

The Least You Can Do

I was lying awake last night, waiting for your call
But if the rumours are true, that won't bother you at all
I'm trying hard to understand
What it takes to be your man
Now I don't have to wonder anymore

Least you can do is say you're sorry
Least you can do is give me back my heart
Just give me back my heart

Seems living in hope was wrong those years I was away
Thinking your letters, I never received, had gone astray
You said you'd always be there for me
Like a fool I thought you'd be
Now I don't know what I was thinking at all

But the least you can do is say you're sorry girl
Least you can do is give me back my heart
I won't come around no more
You won't find me standing outside your door
Least you can do is tell me why, tell me why

The least you can do is say you're sorry girl
Least you can do is give me back my heart
I won't come around no more
You won't find me standing outside your door
But the least you can do is tell me why

I won't be your fool anymore
There's no need to be cruel anymore ?no, no
Least you can do is say you're sorry girl
The least you can do is give me back my heart ?.just give me back my heart

This Love, This Heart

This love, this heart, these arms to hold
So tight to you, I won't let go
Can this be real, or just some dream that feels so true
I wish you love, I wish you more
You are all that I live for
I'll never hurt you believe me
My heart beats just for you
It only beats for you

I'll keep the fire alight for you
Can't think of nothing else, what can I do
This lonely heart of mine, it only beats for you
It only beats for you

You bring me peace, you make me smile
You give me strength and all the while
You ask for nothing, only love
And my heart beats just for you
It only beats for you

I'd say all these things to you
If you were here, but that's not gonna be
COs you 're not here at all
There's only me
But I won't stop trying

I won't give up, I'll wait for you
'Til you come back, it's all I can do
I'll be right here, I'm going nowhere without you
Give me the chance, just make the call
Just say the words, I'm waiting for
Just let this heart of mine show you
It only beats for you

Yes it only beats for you
It only beats for you
This love, this heart
These arms, they're only for you
This love, this heart
These arms, they're only for you
They're only for you

Two Worlds

Put your faith in what you most believe in
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see

A paradise untouched by man
Within this world blessed with love
A simple life, they live in peace

Softly tread the sand below your feet now
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see

Beneath the shelter of the trees
Only love can enter here
A simple life, they live in peace

Raise your head up
Lift high the load
Take strength from those that need you
Build high the walls
Build strong the beams
A new life is waiting
But danger's no stranger here

No words describe a mother's tears
No words can heal a broken heart
A dream is gone, but where there's hope

Somewhere something is calling for you
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see

Wake Up Call

This is your wake up call... young hearts be free

Get up, get on, get out about and shout it
Tell 'em all you're dressed and on your way
Oh there's absolutely no doubt about it
This is your wake up call
You're gonna miss it all

Am I the only one out there that's listening
Cos it's such a lovely noise that I can hear
Eyes are opening up to all around them
This is their wake up call
They're gonna miss it all

Can you feel what's happening here
Everything is changing all around you
It's in the air, electricity
Everybody, yes everybody's waking up
Good morning to you

You're not the only one out there who's running
But the man who's sitting next to you's asleep
So pick him up and shake him till he hears you
This is his wake up call
He's gonna miss it all

Can you feel what's happening here
Everything is changing all around you
It's in the air, electricity
Everybody, yes everybody's waking up
Good morning to you

Those who've done all they can do sleep easy
Those that turn away, they sleep alone
But there's no doubt about it absolutely
This is a wake up call
We 're gonna miss it all

This is your wake up call
This is your wake up call
This is your wake up call
You're gonna miss it
You're gonna miss it all

You Touch My Heart

Somehow you reach in and you touch my heart
Somehow you reach in, you touch my soul
When I look at you, I see everything we could be

Eyes wide open, looking at me
What can I offer you that you've never seen
Just don't be afraid, someone is watching
You will see

Somehow when you smile the day seems brighter
Somehow when you smile you melt my heart
When I look at you I see all things we should be

And in your darkest hour, hold out your hand for me
Something will guide you, I'll be beside you
And when its rough out there, I'm with you everywhere
I will be right behind you if you should fall

Someday you will find everything you look for
Someday you will find a love like mine
When you smile at her you will feel the things you could be

Eyes wide open, looking at me
What can I offer you that you've never seen
Just don't be afraid, someone is watching
You will see, you will see

Somehow you reach in and you touch my heart
Somehow you reach in, you touch my soul
When I look at you, I see everything we could be
