1000 Years From Today

today i woke up smiling
in a misty morning mood
watched your face as you were sleeping
i felt sure that you understood

well you know, you know how i love you so
more than ever now with each single day
and you know that i'll still be loving you
one thousand years from today

got that deeper kind of feeling
that a younger me kept pushing aside
let me be for you all that i'm longing to
right by your side

well you know, you know how i love you so
more than ever now with each single day
and you know that i'll still be loving you
one thousand years from today

yes you know a lifetime to be with you
seems so little now yet so far away
but you know that i'll still be loving you
one thousand years from today

all of my longing and all my belonging
all i can give you, all my life with you

well you know, you know how i love you so
more than ever now with each single day
and you know that i'll still be loving you
one thousand years from today

yes you know a lifetime to be with you
seems so little now yet so far away
but you know that i'll still be loving you
one thousand years from today


A Dream Within A Dream

seven years or seven lives
put a price on anything
a word of wisdom to the wise
you've given up on everything
the more you learn to recognise
the danger signs are gathering

will you fly with me as i sleep in you
in paradise the loneliness is deceiving
are we evergreen or forever blue?
in paradise the only hope is believing

is it trust or is it love
risen to a higher plane
we're following a different path
it never feels the same again
imagine you could live your life
but everything remains the same

will you fly with me as i sleep in you
in paradise the loneliness is deceiving
are we evergreen or forever blue?
in paradise the only hope is believing

if you come to me, i'll succumb to you
in paradise the loneliness is deceiving
omnipresent me, iridescent you
in paradise the only hope is believing

in a circle of life in a cycle of love
in a circle of life in a cycle of love
in a circle of life in a cycle of love
in a circle of life in a cycle of love
in a circle of life in a cycle of love
in a circle of life in a cycle of love

will you fly with me as i sleep in you
in paradise the loneliness is deceiving
are we evergreen or forever blue?
in paradise the only hope is believing

if you come to me, i'll succumb to you
in paradise the loneliness is deceiving
omnipresent me, iridescent you
in paradise the only hope is believing

will you fly with me as i sleep in you
in paradise the loneliness is deceiving
are we evergreen or forever blue?
in paradise the only hope is believing


A Hundred Words

you had it your way
now don't you think it's my turn?
you had it your way
some people never learn
you say, you say
that nothing will change
you say, you say
don't you realise it will always end this way?

you talk of good times
but you don't understand what it even means
talk of good times
talk, talk, so you've always been
you say, you say
you'd do anything for me
you say, you say
don't you realise it will always end this way?

tell me, tell me it isn't so
i will shut my eyes
i don't want to know
it worked before but i know this time
a hundred words won't change your
change your mind

well, you had it your way
now don't you think it's my turn?
you had it your way
stupid people they never learn
you say, you say
that nothing will change
you say, you say
don't you realise it must always end this way?

tell me, tell me it isn't so
i will shut my eyes
i don't want to know
it worked before but i know this time
a hundred words won't change your mind

tell me, tell me it isn't so
i will shut my eyes
i don't want to know
it worked before but i know this time
a hundred words won't change your
won't change your mind

don't ever say it's not so
for in my heart i know
don't ever say it's not so
for in my heart, i know

A Kiss Goodbye

all i'm asking is the strength
to see me through these days
the face of youth keeps turning west
they don't seem to care
but i'm walking in the sun
pulling flowers
from their hair
all these flowers
from their hair

when you hold me in your arms
i could do no harm
when you talk to me
you set me free
when i see your eyes
in grey skies
i would do anything to be

but all i'm asking is the strength
to see me through these days
just to help me realise
why the world's been pushed aside
and why i've just swallowed a fly
i wonder why that poor fly died

but when you hold me in your arms
i could do no harm
when you talk to me
you set me free
when i see your eyes
in blue skies
i would do everything to be with you

Celebrate Your Life

where is the hope today
and where is the passion?
it seemed just like yesterday
love was in fashion

a rumour that was spread around
all the answers had been found
and then it felt like moving on
and suddenly was gone

you want a reason, i'll give you reason
don't change your ideals with every season
just look inside yourself for explanation
and make your own life a celebration

do you dream of better days
gazing through a purple haze
bathed in ultra-violet rays
or do you want your conscience raised?

you want a reason, i'll give you reason
don't change your ideals with every season
just look inside yourself for explanation
and make your own life a celebration

you've got the power, power to be strong
an education that should be lifelong
so don't be a victim of expectation
just make your own life a celebration

you want a reason, i'll give you reason...

Deliver Me

deliver me, out of my sadness
deliver me, from all of the madness
deliver me, courage to guide me
deliver me, strength from inside me

all of my life i was in hiding
wishing there was someone just like you
now that you're here
now that i've found you
i know that you're the one to pull me through

deliver me, loving and caring
deliver me, giving and sharing

all of my life i was in hiding
wishing there was someone just like you
now that you're here
now that i've found you
i know that you're the one to pull me through

deliver me
deliver me
oh, deliver me

all of my life i was in hiding
wishing there was someone just like you
now that you're here
now that i've found you
i know that you're the one to pull me through

all of my life i was in hiding
wishing there was someone just like you
now that you're here
now that i've found you
i know that you're the one to pull me through

deliver me
won't you deliver me?

Dream On

just close your eyes, open your head
set the inside of you full speed ahead
believe in your inner sense and all that you feel
because nothing's impossible and everything's real

don't stop dreaming, dream on
you've got to keep on keeping on
always believing

don't stop dreaming, dream on
you've got to keep on keeping on
always believing

floating up high, you can reach for the sky
set your pulse racing, heaven-embracing
sunshiny days, eachways and anyways
all your tomorrows, bye, bye yesterday

unwilling or willing you from the beginning to...
feel it cloaking you, tripping you
guiding you, calling you in

don't stop dreaming, dream on
you've got to keep on keeping on
always believing

don't stop dreaming, dream on...

Falling On My Face

i was there
in the corner of my eye
i swear, i was there
sky high, bone dry
in a restless world
with a burning pain
i was there
but never again

i knew you would
the way you should
you said you could
but i don't walk straight
i'm on my face again

i saw you
from the look on your face
you saw me too
i saw you
world-weary, split in two
standing cold
in the driving rain
i saw you
but never again

i knew you would
the way you should
you said you could
but i don't think straight
i'm on my face again

on my own
with my experience i should have known
on my own
destination unknown
i've forgot the reasons why i can't explain
on my own
but never again
never again

i knew you would
the way you should
you said you could
but i don't walk straight
i'm on my face again

Forever Dancing

in my life i've heard it said
more often than not
nothing is certain
in my life it seems to me
something's missing

in my dreams a place i go
always
in my dreams forever laughing
still yesterday, come on speak to me

no no no no
no no no no no no no
our love will grow
no no no no
no no no no no no no
our love will surely grow

you're wild, dream aloud
believe in everything you said too hastily so
when i smile
and it means nothing
i see you
so come on, speak to me

no no no no
no no no no no no no
our love will grow
no no no no
no no no no no no no
our love will surely grow

and nothing else seems to matter

our love will grow
no no no no
no no no no no no no
our love will surely grow

Found

well, tell me one thing, is there madness in this reason?
and tell me something that i never knew before
the consequences of my actions aren't confusing
they're just wanting the direction
that i've never had before

i was happy, now i'm walking on the water
i was laughing, now i'm floating in the air
'cause i found you

these gut reactions are the best thing you can go by
premonitions are the second, that's for sure
(that's for sure, oooah)
i'm caught by your eyes, they just surprised me,
overpowered me
i stand here waiting in the calm before the storm

i'm delerious, as happy as you're crazy
it's nothing serious or difficult to cure
'cause i found you
yeah, i found you

your smile is like the ocean, your kiss the seven seas
your eyes like magic potions, they just enrapture me
i promise my affection for all eternity
you are my resurrection, you mean the world to me

Happy Now (Having Fun)

i'm happy now, oh can't you see?
that wherever i turn, i turn towards me
but this morning i kissed the floor
and it tasted better than i'd have thought
oh who'd have thought?

she wants water, i want wine
everything will turn out fine
but i know, yes i know
some people don't ever let go
she wants water, i want wine
everything will turn out fine
but i know, yes i know
some people don't ever let go

as luck would have it and it surely would
whatever i promised her was misunderstood
and then i found splinters inside my tongue
but at least i'm having fun
i'd call it fun, perhaps i'm the only one?

now she wants water, i want wine
everything will turn out fine
but i know, yes i know
some people don't ever let go
she wants water, i want wine
everything will turn out fine
but i know, yes i know
some people never let go

she wants water, i want wine
everything will turn out fine
i know, yes i know
some people don't ever let go
she wants water, i want wine
everything will turn out fine
but i know, yes i know
some people never let go

oh yes i know
some people don't ever let go
oh yes i know
some people don't ever let go

I Love You More

there's something i just can't describe
something controlling me deep inside
whenever i start to feel this way
i just can't think of the words to say

every now and again when i'm feeling sad
oh, i think of you and it makes me glad all over, glad as can be
and that's when i remember just what you mean to me

i love you more than you could know
it's just sometimes it doesn't show
i love you more than you could know
it's just sometimes it doesn't show
oh, but don't play, don't play
don't you play with my heart this way
and don't say, don't say that you feel any other way

it's times when i can't get to sleep at night
that's when i wish i could hold you tight
but if you were here right now with me
i'd tell you for sure what you mean to me

i love you more than you could know
it's just sometimes it doesn't show
i love you more than you could know
it's just sometimes it doesn't show
oh, but don't play, don't play
don't you play with my heart this way
and don't say, don't say that you feel any other way

(i love you)

i love you more than you could know...

If Only

forgive me such idle repetition
but i'm not stirred by this competition
too soft to be unmoved
but enough is enough
to have the power to do whatever i choose

anything on offer is forbidden
i disgust myself, i'm too all-forgiving
what's enjoyment, what is perfection
when you lose sight of yourself
in your failing powers of recollection?

tomorrow's just one day away
i said the same thing yesterday
together whatever however forever

so why is it essential
to be calm and collected?
we all have crosses to bear
but do we all have to be resurrected?
yes i'm sure and i try to believe
but still i want more than you would give to me

tomorrow's just one day away
i said the same thing yesterday
together whatever however forever
tomorrow's just one day away
i said the same thing yesterday
together whatever however forever
together whatever however forever
forever, ever, ever and ever

If Pennies Came From Heaven Could Karl Marx Have Been Mistaken

oh my darlings jean and rita
life couldn't be much sweeter
swinging all around you see
what this country's made of me
until yesterday i'd thought
the best things in life are bought
strange when you're led by the nose
through restaurants in evening clothes
through restaurants in evening clothes

but i'm tired of these contradictions
council roads to revolution
waves part, on they go
walking fast, thinking slow
days don't pass so calmly
invaded by salvation's army
if this is all god's given
well, he could keep the rest
i said he could keep the, keep the rest

but all these pennies
if they came from heaven
would this mean that all's forgiven?

i've seen these men and all the women
in love with everyday living
stack furniture against the door
landmine the kitchen floor
opening windows, pulling strings
the smell of napalm in the morning
but if engels came, saved us all
i doubt he would make housecalls
somehow i doubt that he would make housecalls

but if all these pennies
if they came from heaven
could karl marx have been mistaken?

It´s Alright Now

summer haze
find you woken up and it's a brand new day
time for back to basics in the old style way
being bold, just growing old and dreaming away

in summertime
stretching out and smiling in the warm sunshine
moving on and upward in a grand design
living large and lovin' you and feeling fine

well, it's alright now
don't you worry about a thing
'cause when the morning comes around
i'm gonna make your heart sing
well, it's alright now
don't you stop and wonder why
i'm gonna put my arms around you
we're gonna light up the sky
yeah, it's alright now

summer dream
effortlessly gliding on a ride downstream
well, is you is or is you ain't just part of the team
feel free and you can feel clean

well, it's alright now
don't you worry about a thing
'cause when the morning comes around
i'm gonna make your heart sing
well, it's alright now
don't you stop and wonder why
i'm gonna put my arms around you
we're gonna light up the sky
yeah, it's alright now

Let It Begin

does the process change
do you feel it still?
must we rearrange
all that we've learned until
the problem is resolved?
as you've always known
tonight for the last time
he's alone

there must be questions to ask
there's no time to wait
take yourself to task
cleanse old wounds, re-evaluate
coming up for air
in a fight you made your own
tonight for the very last time
he's alone

Let The Music Take You

another song about dancing
nightclub chance romancing
feel the rhythm - let it flow
energise you - let it go
free your body, yeah!
free that spirit in there

let the bassline move you
with a groove that can soothe you
work it till you drop - never let it stop

just let the music take you
that one step higher
make you, shake you, wake you
with your desire

just let the music take you
that one step higher
make you, shake you, wake you
with your desire

all you disco divas
just shake your thang
in a dancefloor fever
yeah it's happening!

just let the music take you
that one step higher
make you, shake you, wake you
with your desire

just let the music take you...

Lose Yourself In Me

you, with that look in your eyes
who do you think about
as you fantasize?

oh, how i need your caress
anything you want
the answer is yes

lose yourself in me
lose yourself in me

oh, how i long for your touch
how you tantalise me
so much

just one fevered kiss from your lips
sends me heaven bound
permanent bliss

lose yourself in me
lose yourself in me
lose yourself in me
lose yourself in me

yeah you, girl of my dreams
well you turn me inside out
apart at the seams

just give me yourself body and soul
be forever mine
yeah, forever mine

lose yourself in me...

Loving Feeling

baby, baby, oh, i'm telling you
now i'm on my knees
it's like a dream come true

so many things that i want to say
put your arms 'round me
in your special way

got a feeling deep inside
couldn't hide this feeling even if i tried
and there's nothing i wouldn't do, believe me
to show how much i care

oh-oh, i can't lose this love, loving, loving feeling
(oh, will you let me know?)
(you'll never let me go now)
i can't lose this love that's holding me
(doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo)

oh, the flame of love is burning strong
and you know you can't resist it, it would take too long
you hold me close, and then you kiss me
how can you say that you don't miss me?

oh-oh, i can't lose this love, loving, loving feeling
(oh, will you let me know?)
(you'll never let me go now)
i can't lose this love that's holding me
(doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo)

just for you, oh, i would
i'd be your al capone, your robin hood
i could be sinbad on the seven seas
if you would sin that bad with me

oh-oh, i can't lose this love, loving, loving feeling
(oh, will you let me know?)
(you'll never let me go now)
i can't lose this love that's holding me
(doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo)

Missing You

i found myself this morning
but i didn't like the way that i was feeling
it's like i'm in a film
but i spend most of my time looking at the ceiling

and i can't get over yesterday
how the trouble started i was thinking
well i wouldn't have gone overboard
if someone would have told me i'd start sinking

you came into my life took my heart and then you went away
now i'm missing you already
i wish it was tomorrow yesterday

and i'm missing you
missing you
missing you
yeah, i'm missing you

some people find their trouble is in letting go
but you and i are different
it's hard to turn an argument into some kind of
international incident

but you've told me twenty times before you'd leave me
but i chose to play ignorant

so you took my life apart
now it feels my world has gone astray
and i'm missing you already
i wish it was tomorrow yesterday

and i'm missing you
missing you
missing you
girl, i'm missing you

you came into my life took my heart and then you went away
thought that you would make your point
and then you'd come right back to me today

but suddenly it's dawned on me
on my own is how i'm gonna stay
and i'm missing you already
i wish it was tomorrow yesterday

(and i don't know what to do)
i'm missing you... (adlib)

Outerspace Girl

well can you hear me out there?
i send this message to you
transmitting out through the air
signals into the blue
it's earthboy calling on frequency ten

Righteous Me

the autumn of this winter
i've forgotten how to breathe
made my mind up three times or more
simple life of make-believe
my head was in the clouds
feet nailed to the floor
my right hand held the hammer
left knows what my right hand's for
but i'm still waiting
it seems to me
i spend my whole life anticipating

but when i laugh, when i smile
i could leap tall buildings, run a mile
i laugh and then i smile

i have a house and children
i have everything i need
voice concern but i don't complain
remember i've four mouths to feed
but i'm still waiting
and it seems to me that i've
spent my whole life anticipating

when i laugh and smile
i could leap tall buildings, run a mile
i laugh and then i smile
so when i laugh and smile
i could leap tall buildings, run a mile
i laugh and then i smile
i do

Rock To The Rhythm Of Love

it's time that we started believing
we've all got a place in the world
so why can't we harness the feeling
that lies deep inside of us all?

well here comes the end of the century
and what are we thinking of?
it's time to stop fighting your enemy
and offer some friendship and hope, peace, and love

rock to the rhythm of love
take a ride on the rhythm of love
rock to the rhythm of love
take a ride on the rhythm of love

it's time that we started believing
to show that we're willing to try
it's never too late to be changing
so don't let this chance pass us by

well aren't we all part of a family
and hasn't our family suffered enough?
let's put an end to the fighting
and make the world rock to the rhythm of love

Saints Preserve Us

another cold evening another september
i'm tired because things could be better
too many people bear their burdens
carrying crosses hammering nails
wasting lifetime waiting to see you
but nothing disturbs you
disturbs you

saints preserve us, then desert us
saints preserve us, then they desert us

but if these tears you shed were what they seemed
what did you expect to see?
this landscape's cold and less than forgiving
there's no hope of forgetting
staring, you smile
thinking of you all of the while

saints preserve us, then desert us
saints preserve us, then desert us

so when i get away i'll send my regards
thinking i should tell you
that i would much rather say that i don't miss you
i can't and won't forgive you
all i'm doing, all that i'm doing
is trying to forget you
to forget you
oh but i won't forget you

saints preserve us, then desert us
saints preserve us, then desert us
all these saints they preserve us
only to desert us
oh they desert us

Slow Drowning

when we all agree
will you take it gracefully?
and years from now
will you be forgotten?
i take each day as it comes
but still i assume it's all wrong
i remember me in my infancy
how strange to feel i was braver then

but still
so many harder things lie ahead of me
and i will
not be swayed by your idiocy
everything's changed
everyone's gone
i'm all on my own
as i knew all along
and i remember now what i had meant to say
how strange to feel i was braver then

all i call my own
all i call myself
i have spent so long
without the change i need
and if i think things through
it doesn't seem too clear
as if there's no importance
in the things i hold most dear

Spacemen

remember when the water froze and the sky was still
and you looked out of your window on the world
and then you went against your will

if you could see that far
see back from where you are
then you will always be
somewhere inside of me
you're not alone...

and then you held me in your arms
and you told me not to cry or be afraid
i felt protected by your calm

if you could see that far
see back from where you are
then you will always be
somewhere inside of me
you're not alone...

from the silence of my heart
there's a picture in my head
an image frozen of you travelling through time
from long ago to far ahead

if you could see that far
see back from where you are
then you will always be
somewhere inside of me
you're not alone...

if there's a sadness in your eyes
if there's a place that you would rather be alone
to recreate or recognize

if you could see that far
see back from where you are
then you will always be
somewhere inside of me
you're not alone...

oh, as a man you stand alone
all the contentment that you once felt as a child
has long escaped you now you've grown

but i believe in love
believe it's strong enough
to take on everything
that every life could bring
you're not alone...
you're not alone...
you're not alone...
you're not alone...

Spirit

so welcome back again
on the right track again
you finally made it
pushed it to the limit
can't live within it
you can't do without it
where's the surprise?

don't settle for compromise
you know how you feel
there's still spirit in your eyes
you know that it s real

have you been having fun
being the only one
on the right wavelength?
chasing the time
walking the line
watching your life slipping by

don't settle for compromise
you know how you feel
there's still spirit in your eyes
you know that it's real

don't settle for compromise
you know how you feel
there's still spirit in your eyes
you know that it's real

you've only got one life
open your eyes
use it up gently
we're all back to nature
sooner or later
what's the hurry?
where's the fire?

don't settle for compromise
you know how you feel
there's still spirit in your eyes
you know that it's real

don't settle for compromise...

Surprise Me

believe when i say that it has to be true
so much to say, so little to do
i know, i know, i know you
the room's growing cold as the evening grows long
see in your eyes something is wrong
i know, i know, i know you

so where do you go at the end of the day?
where do you hide away?

age has a way of pretending to see
right to the core of what we want to be
but i know, i know, i know me
and i've lost all interest in matters of worth
old again, wise again, born again, no constancy
oh but i know me

so where do you go at the end of the day?
where do you go when you seem so far away?
tell me what happened to the promises that we made
where do you hide away?

so tell me where do you go at the end of the day?
where do you go when you seem so far away?
what happened to the promises that you made?
where do you hide away?

Sweet Harmony

is it right or wrong
try to find a place
we can all belong?
be as one
try to get on by
if we unify?
we should really try...

all this time
spinning round and round
made the same mistakes
that we've always found
surely now
we could move along
make a better world?
no it can't be wrong

let's come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony

let's come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony

let's come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony

let's come together
right now
oh yeah

time is running out
let there be no doubt
we should sort things out
if we care
like we say we do
not just empty words
for a week or two

make the world
your priority
try to live your life
ecologically
play a part
in a greater scheme
try to live the dream
on a wider scene

let's come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony

The Last Detail

there is always someone
who knows a better way
draw your own conclusions
but i for one would rather say
i'm not happy here
there's still a long way to go
and the way i see things
i'm always the last to know

after all that i've been through
why should i, should i find time for you?

i hear these rumours
promising me better days
but i see darkness
and i for one would rather say
i can't help believing
there's still a long way to go
i keep my eyes wide open
but i'm always the last to know

after all that i've been through
why should i, should i find time for you?

i could talk for hours
i was born that way
but in this land of ours
i for one would rather say
i'm not happy here
there's still a long way to go
and the way i see things
i'm always the last to know

after all that i've been through
why should i, should i find time for you?
after all that i've been through
why should i, should i find time for you?

The Sun Rising

movement outside, silence inside
restless lovers spread your wings as the day begins

it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising
it's shining
it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising

learn to love your secret life, still calm and gentle life
your resolution comes too fast, now the night is past

it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising
it's shining
it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising

smiling, gliding, breathless you're riding
love is just a state of mind that we leave behind

it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising
it's shining
it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising

let yourself go

it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising
it's shining
it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising
it's shining.

it's just the sun rising
it's just the sun rising
it's shining
it's just the sun rising
sun rising

life, love... (adlib to fade)

This Means War

just to say that we believed
now we are forgetting
your dismay won't be appeased
by more of this blood-letting
at all
just part of the rise and the fall

and we spend lots of time sitting round in circles
concentrating
down the line, homeward bound
you decide and i'll fill the date in

so how can you say that you don't miss me?
when all your dismay says oh could this be?
how can you say that you don't miss me?
when all your dismay says oh could this be war?

you could hammer on the door
to get back in
until your fists are raw
let this be one you will not win

so how can you say that you don't miss me?
when all your dismay says oh could this be?
how can you say that you don't miss me?
when all your dismay says oh could this be war?
how can you say that you don't miss me?
when all your dismay says oh could this be war?
oh could this be war?
could this be war?

Three Steps To Heaven

consider it done like a father, like son
like a ship that is lost at sea, drifting aimlessly
far away from me

when you're falling asleep and your breathing is deep
but your drifting right out of sight into darkest night
go towards the light

feel love (feel love) - real love (real love)
give love (give love) - three steps to heaven
love life (love life) - live life (live life)
give life (give life) - three steps to heaven

like a shot in the dark, i was wide of the mark
it's wide open and plain to see,
just the inner me, trying to break free

feel love (feel love) - real love (real love)
give love (give love) - three steps to heaven
love life (love life) - live life (live life)
give life (give life) - three steps to heaven

(feel love, real love, give love...)
(feel love, real love, give love...)
(feel love, real love, give love...)
(feel love, real love, give love...)

it was all coming back when the image turned black
and my vision began to swim, something from within
seemed to pull me in

feel love (feel love) - real love (real love)
give love (give love) - three steps to heaven
love life (love life) - live life (live life)
give life (give life) - three steps to heaven

feel love (feel love) - real love (real love)
give love (give love) - three steps to heaven
love life (love life) - live life (live life)
give life (give life) - three steps to heaven
three steps to heaven...

Time After Time

i'm much too headstrong for my own good
i'm too involved to realize
that your uncertainty will be the death of me
but i lose my will and if looks could kill,
i've been struck down dead by your beautiful eyes

time after time you challenge me for a reason
i know that i'm impossible and deceiving
i'v seen the signs,
you're telling me that you're leaving
time after time...
time after time...

these games of politics and romance,
they're quite impossible to win
i can't unfathom you;
one minute you love me or you say you do
and then i turn my back, i'm under attack,
i turn to hold you and you stick the knife in

time after time you challenge me for a reason
i know that i'm impossible and deceiving
i'v seen the signs,
you're telling me that you're leaving
time after time...
time after time...

and if i change to be the way you say you want me,
i'll only be the way i've always wanted to
you know as well as i do...
you know as well as i do...

time after time you challenge me for a reason
i know that i'm impossible and deceiving
i'v seen the signs,
you're telling me that you're leaving
time after time...
time after time...

time after time you challenge me for a reason
i know that i'm impossible and deceiving
i'v seen the signs,
you're telling me that you're leaving
time after time...

oh, well i still love you
time after time...
oh, i love you
time after time...
you know, you know, i still love you
time after time...
oh, i love you
time after time after time after time after time...

You´ve Got Me Thinking

now i know it isn't easy
the things i've put you through
i have no right to do
you try so very hard to please me
but i'm remote from you
so rarely close to you

you've got me thinking for the first time
about the things i've said and done
now i see things much more clearly
feels like the change must surely come

it's not as if i couldn't realise
i was hurting you
soul-searching you
sensing your bravery
feeling unsavoury most of the time
well have i been so blind?

you've got me thinking for the first time
about the things i've said and done
and now i see things much more clearly
feels like the change must surely come

well you've no reason for believing
but i'm tired of all this self-deceiving

you've got me thinking for the first time
about the things i've said and done
and now i see things much more clearly
feels like the change must surely come

you've got me thinking for the first time...
