BACK AGAIN

When the work is done and the living's easy
I reside to my life so breezy
Think of all the troubles overcome

But I don't suppose that you'll ever see me
Angered by your love so squeeze me
I propose to fight for what is mine

Cause I'll take you back again

He's a miner's son he stole my true love
Tempted her with freckled fortunes
Now I have to show her what is more

With a ring in hand and a book of verses
I climbed through her crooked bedroom
Greeted by a miner's crooked leg

Cause I'll take you back again
Yes I need her once again

Dusting off my old blue coat
I wander in a midnight dream
And I guess there's no telling me...
No I won't have her back again

 

CAN YOU FEEL

Underneath the brave and brand new sky
A soldier's singing
So I'm writing you this letter
Won't be long 'til I meet you at the station

For you are the only one I'm thinking of
You are the one that has my love
While you're waiting patiently don't grieve for me
I'll be back some day
Never want to be a hero too soon
Do, do, do, do....

Though it seems to be so many years
Since I went away
I'm helpless now I've shed so many tears
Such a rainy day
Take me from this galaxy
Imaginate yourself with me through night and day
Wish upon a star that floats alone
To skies that always look over you
Never want to get a bullet too soon

Can you feel
The raindrops falling down? Do, do, do, do....

I can see rain on a distant plain
I could cry watching your picture fade
As the dust settles down after fire

Can you feel
The raindrops falling down?
Like a gentle gunshot fire
I keep moving on down

 

COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS

Long may the sun shine on you
Long may the rain fall on me
I'm having trouble in my head
It comes form the things you said
Now I'm counting down the days

I never told you half the truth
I'd always tiptoed through your room
I can't be sorry for what I've done
I couldn't spoil the fun
Now I'm counting down the days

And the ocean holds no clues
And that plane overhead could be taking you away
I haven't always been this cold
Before the news grows old
I'll be counting down the days

 

EVERYWHERE YOU GO

I could be a lover like that
Just give me all the thing that you want now
Tell me the best thing I can do

You say you got a lot of good reasons
I know I told a lot of good lies now
I could lose everything for you

So if you fall asleep and gotta wake up
Say that it's so
I'll be the one to tear you away from here

Everywhere you go I'll come running
Everywhere you go I will bring you round
Everywhere you go I will come to you
But I won't bring you down

Fly a little take a long drive
We can be whatever we want now
Won't be the same here without you

So if you've gotta leave a little later
Stay here a while
I could take all these fears away from you

CHORUS

All the tears you cry as the miles roll by
I'll be reaching out to hold you
There is nothing else that I won't do for you

I could take all these fears away from you

CHORUS

All the tears you cry as the miles roll by
I'll be reaching out to hold you
There is nothing else that I won't do for you

Everywhere you go
I will come to you
But I won't bring you down

 

GET SET

Making the scene I really mean
You should be there with me
And make believe
I'll find a place for us to be alone
Here in the depths of our emotion
Don't you know baby

Get set everybody
We're on our way to meet you
Too late everybody
We're on our way to nowhere
And I will be there

Kick out your seat let's elevate
Hold on to what you know
Is gonna break
A roller coaster ride inside your mind
Is what need to terrify you
Don't you know baby

CHORUS

Never gets you too far
Never gets you too far now
If you climb aboard there's nothing to it
If you concentrate we'll see you through it
Don't forget at the end of the ride
You'll be hypnotised by the sound it's too late

CHORUS

If you want me to....(x 3)

 

HELPLESSLY HOPING
(Crosby, Stills, & Nash)

Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearby
Awaiting a word
Gasping at glimpses of gentle free spirit he runs
Wishing he could fly
Only to trip at the sound of goodbye

Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and
Wonders at the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams
He worries, did he hear a goodbye? Or even hello?

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

Stand by the stairway you'll see something
Certain to tell you confusion has its cost
Love isn't lying it's loose in a lady who lingers,
Saying she is lost, and choking on hello

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

 

ICE CREAM

I, I like ice cream
A kind of smooth kick taste takes away my mind
You, you ain't a better thing
But if you gotta big car take me for a ride

Folding my fingers through your hair
Taking my time to look on
Dreaming of white chocolate lotion
I gotta find a better place where I can be another face
And people look on

Take me to Sunset Park
We'll find a better day - somewhere that's far away
Find me at Sunset Park
Lay back and make believe - we can be anything
We're on our own

I, I ain't a jelly bean
A cellophane sun kiss takes away the time
B ut I I'm going sugar-free
And when you get to sunset we'll go for a ride

Police man in bright yellow raincoats
Waving the children goodbye
So I buy a dream with a short note
I gotta find a better place where I can be another face
And people look on

CHORUS

Taken by surprise on this occasion
You left me for a sharper man than me
Ice cream, daydream, far away from here

CHORUS

 

LET ME DIE YOUNG

I believe in the faithful and true
I believe in silly things
Like everlasting love
But I could never ever believe
What was struck upon you
You fell away
But this time it was for good

Let me die young let me die young
So I can be with you forever
Let me die young let me die young
So we can laugh again in heaven

Once again you broke my heart
But this time it's different
Cause today my heart is beyond repair
So it bleeds
Cause darling you slipped away
Much too easy for me

CHORUS

When the loneliness inside me
Turns to pain
I'll drink my heart to sleep
Just to see you once again

I believe in the faithful and true
I believe in silly things like everlasting love

CHORUS

 

LET'S SPEND THE NIGHT

Left me here on a rainy day
Somehow I knew this would come
Silent room full of memories
Now I wake to find that everything's gone

It could have been, I think to myself
A blessing that I'll never know
And if it seems I'm trying too hard
Give me the strength to let go

It's the last time that we'll have together
It's the only thing left in our lives
But as long as we still have each other
Let's spend the night

Find myself a better life you use to say
Now your dreaming has finally grown
Even though you are near and the answers so clear
I can't do it, I can't let you go

And if it seems, I'm falling behind
It's hurting me more than you'll know

CHORUS

I remember the line that you gave to me
'Bout the days and the rest of our lives
Now that you've found your place to be
It'll kill me if you're not around

CHORUS

 

NOTHING IN THIS WORLD

Pressing your face on a tear coloured glass
Washing my name from your mouth as you pass
You talk to me, but the words seem to disappear

Cause there's nothing in this world
That'll stop me fighting for you
Nothing in this world
That'll keep me away
There is nothing in this world
That'll stop me fighting for your love

I might have told you how much you have meant to me
(Don't be alarmed if I tell you how I feel)
You found adventures in places I couldn't see
(I could have been there if only I showed you)
I fall for you, in this place just to be with you

CHORUS

You broke me like a fallen leaf
When you spoke too soon
But I found strength in what I need
And I need you...

 

RACHAEL

Rachael, I'm sorry that we never had the time
Making love could of last forever
I will never let you go from the corners of my mind
Never say never
Rachael, I'm dreaming of a day when you were mine
We could have been so good together
Lonely sitting here with just my thoughts beside me now
Never say never

When you find the time
I'd like to nestle in your arms
Tangled I the deepest jungle
Never been so kind
All will be for sake

Rachael, a lesson hard to learn is what I've found
This difference has grown between us
I was never one to show the way that my heart lies
Save me from misery
Rachael, it's taken far too long to realise
You're everything that I could care for
This paradise inside will never leave my heart and mind
Together and forever

With a lovers touch she will be
Sending me away
A promise of a new beginning
Each and every day
Even when we lie

Could have been so good together now
A new beginning every day
Could have been so good together, Rachael
Could have been so good together now
But she's still sending me away

 

ROCKETSHIP

Sitting in a rocket ship
perpetual motion, takes me for a ride feeling terracoda
As I wake amongst the, moments of my life
Slipping into clean blue jeans I stumble
But no one else hears me
Well can you hear me?

And when the morning finds the sun
You are with me now
And as the day begins to come
I'm telling you-I'm still in love with you

Telepathic messages
I'm leaving on a jet plane over sky
Gathering my thoughts I float and gaze at magic
Carried through the night
Your Egyptian finger hypnotise
Your solemn eyes
I could have died

CHORUS

And as the silence turns to sound
You are with me now
And as the day begins to sing
I'm telling you - I'm still in love with you

CHORUS

 

72 HOUR DAZE

It's a lovely day today
So why do I feel strange
Wasted away I am dry
Three feet to either way
Can't help to think what may
Will be left around me
When I die

And the sunlight in my eyes ain't helping me
Cause everywhere I look it's all I see

Dreaming of another place
To wash away the pain
So I can fly away
Can't deal with all of my disgrace
Waiting for the time
When I will fly away

I remember yesterday
Though some things may have changed
A different place, another time
Two trips I have to make
Bus ride I have to take
The other trip is in my mind
And the moonlight in your eyes is melting me
Rise up through the skies and reach for me

CHORUS

Knew that I could never be without you now
Didn't have to let me go
Only had to let me know
Anyway for me to get away from you
Now I'll have to let you go
Didn't want to let you go

CHORUS

Never knew that I would look upon your face
Maybe in another place
I will fly away
Anyway for me to find a way to you
There is nothing I won't do
I will fly I will fly...

It's a lovely day today
So why do I feel strange
Everything around me has changed

 

A STONE IN THE OCEAN

I lie in my room listen to the sound of the city
The light of the moon
The snow on the ground is so pretty
My friends are asleep
Not knowing a word of the secrets I keep
Nobody will care when I'm fading away

A chill to that wind
My heart's just a stone in the ocean
The accusations begin
And hopelessly I choke on my emotions

Somebody once said
It'll all turn out fine if you just use your head
Nobody will care when you're fading away

I don't think you're old enough to know
I don't think it's clear enough to see

My friends' still asleep
Not knowing a word of the secrets I keep
Nobody will care when I'm fading away
Fading away (x3)
When I'm fading away

 

ALRIGHT

So you say you've got nothing to lose
Wanting more than you hope you'd ever use
And when it all seems said and done
Don't you know...

Everything is going to be alright
When your day begins alone
You'd better live for the night
It's gonna be alright, alright this time

In the end you're the one that made the move
You turned your back when there was nothing left to prove
Now it's time to break away
Can't you see...

Everything is gonna be alright
When your day begins alone
You'd better live for the night
It's gonna be alright
When your day begins alone

Well this may not be the best news
But I hate to have to test you afterall
You show no resistance you say
Love is blind, it pulls you under

Broken dreams fade away
Turn your eyes, let your hope lead you astray
Just hold on tight, let's take a ride

CHORUS

 

HAPPY

Received your postcard just the other day
And I, I read the news you got your way
A bad connection via the operator
Reminds me each and every day

Happy to see you're having fun
(Glad you're on your way)
Happy to hear your life's undone
You get what you want
When you take what you need alright

They say that distance breeds the fondest heart
But to me it's only pushing you away
A faded photograph, your letter by the door
Reminds me each and every day

Chorus

New voyage/destination happy holiday
Sunsets and scenery abound
I'll be on the ground
Dark clouds and sunless skies
Awaiting as you close your eyes
You cringe as you're fallin' down
As you're falling down

 

HELENA MY DEAR

It's taken some time
Words are always the hardest things to find
But now I know it's true
There is no one in my little world but you
I bit my tongue, but now I'm telling everyone

Helena my dear
When you coming 'round again
When you coming 'round again
Helena my dear
Throw your weapons down, pretend
Maybe we could all be friends

I look straight through your eyes
I see the sentences forming in your mind
You give the world your heart
And you knew me all along
Right from the start
I'll wait for you
I'll save it all for you

Helena my dear
When you coming 'round again
When you coming 'round again
Helena my dear
Throw your weapons down, pretend
Maybe we could all be friends

I'm much too tired to keep on trying
I'm calling out, you're holding me down

Helena my dear
Throw your weapons down, pretend
Maybe we could all be friends
Helena my dear

Helena my dear
Cause when the troubled times begin
That's when we'll be our only friends
So we'll be our only friends

 

I BELIEVE IN FATHER CHRISTMAS
(Lake & Sinfield)

They said there'll be sun on Christmas
They said there'll be peace on Earth
But instead it just kept on raining
A veil of tears for the Virgin Birth

I remember one Christmas morning
The summer's light and the distant choir
And the peel of the bell
And the Christmas tree smell
Eyes full of tinsel and fire

They sold me a dream of Christmas
They sold me a Silent Night
They told me a fairytale story
'Till I believed in the Israel Light

And I believed in Father Christmas
I looked to the sky with excited eyes
When I awoke at the first light of dawn
I saw him through His disguise oh why...

They said there'd be sun on Christmas
They said there'd be peace on Earth
Hallelujah Noel
Be heaven or hell
At Christmas we get our deserve

We wish you a hopeful Christmas
We wish you a brave new year
All that anguish, pain and sadness
Leave your heart and let your road be clear

 

VOODOO DOLL SIN

She looks like she's been 'round the world
In a couple of days
A dead flower in her hair and dirt on her face
And she says "One of these days, I'll do something right"
As the light bounces around in her eyes
And I may be a voodoo doll sin excuse for a man
But I know...

All of my life, I'll give you endless symphonies
All through the night, I will make all your lies come true

Flying high above my head, there's a balloon
Its' jagged path's caught by the wind a little too soon
And she says, "I'll be the string that gets caught in the trees"
And she smiles, all the while time seems to freeze
And I may be a voodoo doll sin excuse for a man
But I know...

CHORUS

In between second thoughts
You've landed me in pain again
And I just can't walk away from these troubled times
And leave you here

(see your face again)

All of my life, I'll give you endless symphonies
All through the night, I will be waiting
(I will be waiting)
All through the night, I'll give you everything
All your life
(see your face again)
