CLEARLY KIM

You took the late flight out of my life
Into the heat of a dancer's light
Where the sun never sets

One more letter
Over the water
I could never forget you

I get a feel for the island set
Vividly real in your novelettes
A satin kimono'd writer's romance
Auto-erotic souvenirs in aerogrammes of passion

One more letter
Over the water
I could never forget you

THIS IS FOR THE GIRLS

This is for the girls with broken love affairs
This is for the hungry lovers everywhere
When you get that feeling calling you back home
Wait it out, you may find you're not alone

Quit looking over your shoulder
'Cause it doesn't matter where you've been
Aren't we the last of the lovers
Didn't we used to be good friends

This is for the girls
This is for the girls ...

This is for the ladies who swear they're wearing white
This is for the hours of bliss they've missed so many nights
If you won't unleash your mad desires to me
You can't expect to make romance can't you see

Quit looking over your shoulder
'Cause it doesn't matter where you've been
Aren't we the last of the lovers
Didn't we used to be good friends

This is for the girls
This is for the girls ...

LET IT GO

Keep your feelings alive
I know they will survive in that place
Where years of change can't erase them

Let me see what's inside
There's no reason to hide
Be yourself
Nothing else will get in the way

Let the love out of your heart
Let it go and we can make a start
I know that we'll never part
'Cause I will do the same

You can run around inside your mind
No fresh air and no easy time
Just the same
You can't get out of that game

There's no need to explain
What is real or sane
For the love that you give
Will return to you

Let the love out of your heart
Let it go and we can make a start
I know that we'll never part
'Cause I will do the same

LISTEN FOR THE LOVE

You don't have to keep on searchin'
'Cause I believe that love is here for you to find
This confusion you've been cursin'
Is just a state of mind

In this world one thing lasts forever
Never leaves you when you feel you can't go on
Love is always there - listen
Listen for the love

There has always been a special sound
Flowing ever in our minds
Rhythm movin' us to higher ground
Movin' us together

In this world one thing lasts forever
Never leaves you when you feel you can't go on
Love is always there if you listen
Listen for the love

Listen
For the love
Listen
For the love
Listen
For the love

IF I SAW YOU AGAIN

Once in a while in a flash of light
I can still see you fading in the light
Tell me
Where are you going
Where have you been

I'd still adore you if I saw you again

If I saw you
If I saw you again
If I saw you, if I saw you
I would adore you then

Years ago we were here
Now you're a world away
And I've been lost in an empty stare
Thinkin' bout yesterday

If I saw you
If I saw you again (you know I'd love to see you)
If I saw you, if I saw you again
If I saw you again

I would hold you
Never let you go
Through the endless night,
And we'd discover as brand new lovers
What we have is right

If I saw you
If I saw you again (There wouldn't be a shadow hangin' over me)
If I saw you, if I saw you again (I've got so many things to say to you baby)
If I saw you, if I saw you
You know I'd love you then

INTERLUDE

Instrumental

IT'S ALRIGHT

Up all night with the same thing in my head
Just wanting you here next to me
It's been a long time
Don't you agree
We can turn it all around if you say to me

Say it's alright
Change this situation
It wasn't meant to be
Don't you see
It was alright
We just let it slip away
Oh darlin' I just wanna hear you say

It's alright
Don't you worry baby
It's alright

Ain't no secret I wanted you to stay
Come on baby let me hear from you
So many memories are rushing back again to me
Remember how good things used to be

And say it's alright
End my desperation
You can change it
This wasn't meant to be a tragedy
'Cause it was alright
Till we let it slip away
I wanna hear you say it's alright

ROOM AT THE TOP

You have got the eyes of a dreamer
An underachiever
A lonely one
You with the case of the financial fever
You face disbelievers
What have you done

I can see through the song and dance
And I will be the one who takes a chance

You can get what you want when you need it
With someone to feed it
And fill you in

I will play the game
But the rules won't be the same

If there's room at the top
I wanna be there
If there's a space call me up - yeah
Any way you want it
I'm ready to surrender
'Cause ever since I was a boy
They've been tellin' me
There's room at the top
And I'm gonna be there
I'll give it all I got - yeah
Movin' on up
I'm movin' on up
Ever since I was a boy
They've been tellin' me
That there's room at the top
Pull out the stops

Out on the edge of the balance of power
I watch by the hour
The way of the world
Pull and shove, exchange and devour
It has to grow sour
This endless lure

I can see through the song and dance
I will be the one who takes a chance

I GET IT FROM YOU

When it's cold outside and the rain's coming down
It feels so good when we're laying around
I look in your eyes and I feel it too
Whatever it is, I get it from you

There's no place else I'd rather be
Than with you tonight, my security
Ain't no reason to worry baby, we'll see it through
Whatever it is, I get it from you

'Cause you are everything I need in my life
When I'm in doubt you're always there
Nothing else is guaranteed like the love you give to me

At the end of the night there's nowhere to go
And time slips by in a motion too slow
When I look in your eyes I feel it too (you know I do)
Whatever it is, I get it from you

'Cause you are everything I need in my life
When I'm in doubt you're always there
Nothing else is guaranteed like the love you give to me

Future Street

I DO BELIEVE IN YOU

They tried to catch us dancin' on the line
They say we took it away too far this time
They gave us no breaks here
But we made our own I swear

I do, I do believe in you
After all that we've been through
I do, I do believe in you
(I do believe in you)
And everything that we do

We used to run with the dangerous crowd
Where the flame was hot and burning out
We knew we'd have to give
It hit us where we lived

I do, I do believe in you
(I do believe in you)
After all that we've been through together
You took away my darkest nights
(I do believe in you)
When no one else could see the night

Running blind day after day
Some things never want to change
We knew we'd have to give
It hit us where we lived

I do, I do believe in you
(I do believe in you)
(Can't you see)
After all that we've been through
You took away my darkest nights
(I do believe in you)
When no one else could see the light

THE SAILOR'S SONG

Red sky at morning
Sailor take warning
Never more to love the land
Welcome lost harbor
Port o'call so foreign
Never to return again

Blue sky rising
Carry me forever
Southern light guide me
On my journey

A ship in the night
On uncharted passage
Cast to the fortune of the sea
A new world discovered
Like a waiting lover
Willing to fulfill a fantasy

Dark sky falling
Far away from home
But this life ain't lonely
This life's alone
Blue sky rising
Carry me

A light in the distance
A cold reminiscence
Of how the world used to be
Follow the dreamer
Down to the water
Sail away from yesterday

Blue sky rising
Carry me forever
Southern light guide me
On my journey

TAKE MY HEART AWAY

She will never be the girl back home
She acts as if I should have known
The way she loves is so new to me
The words she says I do believe

Take my heart away
I can't live much longer
The way I did before you found me
Say the night you'll stay
My love just gets stronger

I never knew what was missing
So alone and never giving
I needed you and you came to me
When no one else could save me

Take my heart away
I can't live much longer
The way I did before you found me
And say the night you'll stay
My love just gets stronger

Don't run away this time
It takes so long to find
The love that's in your mind
Will always be there

Take my heart away
I can't live much longer
The way I did before you found me
(Before you reached out to touch me)
Say the night you'll stay
My love just gets stronger

FUTURE STREET

I'm down on my back
No one beside me
Where are the friends I used to know
I'm goin'; I'm gone
I can't take it anymore
Gonna find my way

Won't you follow me
Up to Future Street
Nothing is complete
But we're all together

Back on my feet is how I'm feelin'
I've done my time but that ain't real
(It just ain't real)
So no more
Come on
I've heard that song
I'm gonna find my way

Won't you follow me
Up to Future Street
It will be complete
Up on Future Street

Come on follow me
Up to Future Street
It will be complete
When we're all together

(Hey)
(Come on)
(Come on, I know we'll find a way)
(Discover today)

I can't call home
There isn't a telephone
Yeah I've found my way
Where I belong

Won't you follow me
Up to Future Street
Nothing is complete
But we're all together

Come on follow me
Up to Future Street
It will be complete
Up on Future Street

WHO'S RIGHT, WHO'S WRONG

I, I've grown tired of fighting
Whether you're right or wrong
Whether I'm weak or strong in your eyes
'Cause it's a lonely feeling
Watchin' you turn away
Why does it have to be this way
On and on tonight you've made a point of being right
Making this a game instead of love
Don't you know
Someone's heart might get broken before too long
If we keep on playing this game

Who's right, who's wrong
When love is gone
Who's right, who's wrong
False or true
It never used to matter to you

Now you're almost cryin'
Sayin' "I gotta run"
Easier said than done
Why - I want to know what you're hiding
Turn around and look at me
Have I ever been so hard to see
If we'd only come together for one moment here tonight
You could hold me tight and ease a troubled mind
Don't you know
Someone's heart might get broken before too long
If we keep on playin' this game

Who's right, who's wrong
(So tell me baby)
When love is gone
(When there's nothing left)
Who's right, who's wrong
False or true

Who's right, who's wrong
(Can you tell me)
When love is gone
Who's right, who's wrong
(Don't you see)
When love is gone

(Come on)
Who's right, who's wrong
(All that matters is that I love you)
When love is gone
(All that matters is that we stay together)
Who's right, who's wrong
(We gotta try, it don't come easy)
When love is gone
(When love is gone)
(Love is gone)
Who's right, who's wrong
(I got to say something to you girl)
When love is gone
(Before it goes too long)
Who's right, who's wrong...

CHEMISTRY

No more hesitation
Finally face to face
Can you see me
This is a creation nothing can replace
If we want it

When we reach for love together
We will feel the magic
A chain reaction of passion
In our hearts a chemistry

Through the years of learning
One thing stays the same
And you know it
We never give up searching until we find a way
If we want it

When we reach for love together
We will feel the magic
A chain reaction of passion
In our hearts a chemistry

Something in the atmosphere
Is burning clear
And stirring me tonight
No secrets stand between
The dreams that you call yours
And I call mine
Now you bet your life
Because you know when you're right

In a moment's notice
Right before our eyes
Can you see it
Days of madness over
Ready for surprise
Are you ready

When we reach for love together
We will feel the magic
A chain reaction of passion
In our hearts a chemistry

TWO PEOPLE

Can't hide away
Unspoken words I need to say
Our journeys end
But our dreams go on unchanged
Look to my heart now
Go to the stars now
For they wait in time
For a chance to shine
Their love on us

Two people
Holding onto love
As two people who are one
Together

Don't ask why
Just take my hand and wave good-bye
Who's to say we can't find love tonight
We're all alone now
We're almost home now
To that welcome place
Far beyond the trace
Of our time

Two people
Holding onto love
As two people who are one
Together

Two people
Looking for a world
As two people who are one
Forever
(Forever)

KEEP ON MOVIN'

Talkin' to the man
Don't think he understands what I'm sayin'
Under the gun
All he says is "Son just keep on playin'"

Who do you trust
When you're out on the edge of losin'
Down to the bone
Fellin' all alone
Keep on movin'

You've been runnin' scared
Sayin' life is fair
I ain't listenin'
Talk about your schemes
But I don't want to be another victim

Who do you trust
When you're out on the edge of losin'
Down to the bone
Fellin' all alone
Keep on movin'

Keep on movin'
Don't stop movin'
It's gonna get better, better
Lord you know it just can't get much worse

Don't you think it's wise
To lose the thin disguise that you've been keepin'
Open up your eyes
You're spendin' all your life just breakin' even

Who do you trust
When you're out on the edge of losin'
Down to the bone
Fellin' all alone
Keep on movin'

Keep on movin'
Don't stop movin'
It's gonna get better, better
Lord you know it just can't get much worse

YOU NEED A HERO

There was a time in your life
When it was eassier livin' all alone
Find yourself livin' on the edge
Of another reason why you can't go home

I got news for you
Nothin's lost if what we have is love
Just someone to catch you when you fall
It's the only thing you wanted at all

You need a hero
Someone to recue you
Yeah someone that you can run to
You need a hero
Someone to rescue you
Don't run away, I'm waitin( to love you

We're just a heartbeat apart
Closer than we've ever been before
I'll be there to catch you when you fall
It's the only thing you wanted at all

TELL ME

I've played many lovers in a hundred lonely scenes
Acting out a fool of passion
I was always trying to act accordingly
But love was something I imagined

I was wrong, so wrong

Please tell me
Tell me
Do you love me
Tell me

I wanna be your lover
Not an ordinary friend
'Cause lovers I'm told make love
I can't run for cover
I keep runnin' back again
Oh it never seems I'll ever get enough

I can't let go, oh no
Please tell me
Tell me
Do you want me
Tell me
Do you love me
Tell me
I stand alone outside the light
Tell me
That leads its way into your life
Do you need me
I need your love, I can't let go
Tell me
I'm here for you forever

Tell me I'm the lover you picture in your dreams
Let me be the one you turn to
Tell me there's no other in your heart to see
Come on give it up, I'm here to love you

I can't let go, oh no

Please tell me
I stand alone outside the light
Tell me
That leads its way into your life
Do you want me
I need your love, I can't let go
Do you love me
I'm here for you forever
Do you love me ...

O.C.O.E. (ORIGINAL CAT OF THE EIGHTIES)

You were such a prophet back in '63
You had all the answers
You became the first to set the children free
But nothing lasts forever

Time goes on
And dreams, they wash away

You traded in your karma for the 70's
Searching for the meaning
You rented out your land up in Monterey
Livin' for the city

Disco nights you'd swing
And wonder why

O.C.O.E.
You got charisma
O.C.O.E.
You fit the picture

Somewhere in the netherworld of cons and scams
Lives a last messiah
Rushin' to the future and runnin' from the past
Intend on getting higher
So knocked out
So real
A hopeless jag

COME ON HOME

Call you
Telephone
Far away
I'm so alone
Turn around
See your face
You're the one my mind won't erase

Come on home babe
I can't live alone
Come on home babe
I just can't live without your love
I know I'll never be the same
If you don't come home babe

Find myself
Empty room
I want nothing else but the touch of you
Stare away
Try to sleep
But the love we made just keeps calling me

SESATIA

No one can save you
Nobody wants to 'cause you've gone too far
Sharp as a knife's edge
The edge of your bed
So in control
You make it seem
You were never told

Oh Sesatia
I wanna save ya
Don't be a hard case
I'm gonna save ya

Your eyes were candy
Your flesh was handy to an easy mark
Pearl white necklace
Icy cold bracelets
Pain and pleasure chains
They were a matched set
It was a bad bet
Such a sordid scene

You took it out one time
But you didn't come back
You think it's just so fine
But it ain't gonna last

ONLY A DREAMER

There's a grey light
And it's waiting up ahead
How long can I make it down this lonely road
Such a sad night
I can't let you go
How do we keep goin' on
Now that we both know

Only a dreamer
Would ever wanna stay
But I can't give you up
Only a dreamer
Would carry on this way
But I can't give you up

It's a fine line
We can play it either way
Somehow we still find ourselves goin' seperate ways
From the first sign of this heartache
Why do we keep goin' on
Knowin' it could break

AUTOMATIC

I'm switched on and twisted
So hung up in my life
I feel nihilistic
Automatic tonight

I'm caught up in the middle
A mental wasteland
It hurts just a little
Nobody understands

Automatic ... (Stuck on automatic)
Automatic ... (Stuck on automatic)

A kid he was gifted
Lost it all in one night
He turned on, he missed it
He was warped, he was wired

Heard a steel tapdance
Staccato double time
Rhythm was the answer
Any groove was fine

Automatic's on time
When nothin' else will fit
In a corner you try
You can't get out of it

Wear the mask you creature
Cause a major scene
No one saw you leave here
Cut it loose and clean

FEARLESS

At a young and desperate age
Like the heroes we once played
We were so courageous
Just enough to make it real

Fearless is the child that sees
What his life is meant to be
Like the fighter
He will dance to stay alive

Fearless
Nothin' left to hide
Fearless
On the other side
Ridin' free and fearless on a raging sea
Is the only thing that keeps you alive

Livin' like he's on the run
Fearless knows what he's become
He's still courageous
Like the hero, he survives

MIDNIGHT ANGEL

Now I can see how much you mean to me
I keep in my heart each time
A picture painted clear
Where we will go from here

You slip through the night
Down from the mountain light
You stand at my door
But I'm gone to my ship, my easy chair
Suddenly you are there
I see you

Midnight angel
You're more than just a dream
Midnight angel
Angel
I love you, yes I love you
Midnight angel
Angel

Where is my flame to welcome me home again
Here and then gone away
She knows I really care
Suddenly she is there
Just for me

I wear the face

HUNTERS OF THE NIGHT 

He's a lean and hungry hunter
On the street tonight the fire's bright
She's in his sights
She's a lonelylittle dancer
Out to find a daring new romance
The girl takes a chance

Hunters of the night
Find their love where they might
We're all hunters of the night

She can see her lonely stranger
Standing in the cold street corner light
There in the night
She can feel his arms surround her
Wanting this embrace to never end
Still once again

Hunters of the night
Find their love where they might
We're all hunters of the night

See the lean and hungry hunter
Standing in the cold street corner light
There in the night
She can feel his arms surround her
Wanting this embrace to never end
Still once again

CODE OF LOVE

She said I read her diary
Her secret inner fantasies
She said I broke the code of love
I caught her going through my drawers
An offense I felt of course
And then she broke the code of love
You broke it - you know you did it - yeah
You broke it - I watched you do it

She always thought she was my world
But I know lots of other girls
They made me break the code of love
We had a real prefab-type thing
A docile domestic home scene
Until we broke the code of love

You broke it - you know you did it - yeah
You broke it - I watched you do it

The code of love should never be broken
The code of love - words remain unspoken

Code of ... code of ... code of

PARTNERS IN CRIME

Is this a world of strangers
A cold and cruel life
Or can I call this place my home
I'll step into the danger
If only for one night
I can't keep on livin' all alone
This time you could be my only one
This thim we gotta take a chance
'Cause you and I are

Partners in crime
Caught between what's right or wrong
We're two of a kind
Partners in crime
When you think you can't go on
You'll reach out and find
Together we survive

I can't control the anger
This feelings deep inside
It makes my body feel so cold
I've searched so many faces
Too many desperate nights
I need someone like you to hold
This time I could be your only one
This time we gotta take a chance
'Cause you and I are

Partners in crime
Caught between what's right or wrong
We're two of a kind
Partners in crime
When you think you can't go on
You'll reach out and find
Together we survive

Partners in crime
Partners in crime

32

Fallin', fallin', fallin'

This is your pilot speaking
We're losing altitude
Just when emotion's peaking
Awakening is rude
I've seen that disbelieving look upon your face
Now watch our bodies both as one we fall through space

32
Do a 32
Do a 32
And keep falling

Now all the constellations
Look just like you and me
The earth keeps coming closer
The force of gravity
Second per second becomes hour after hour
Into infinity we fall together

32
Do a 32
Do a 32
And keep falling

RUNAWAY

She plays it so dramatic - a silhouette of soul
It's automatic - he won't ever let go
She wants a tender lover - a clean and honest man
Why she keeps on running - I just don't understand

Runaway - Why do you run away
Come on stay - Just stay tonight
Runaway - You're just a runaway
Runaway - It'll be alright

In between the faces and on the out-of-bounds
They could find the places no one else could have found
Now she's in expectation and he's in search of truth
A simple soul equation one and one heart is two

Runaway - Why do you run away
Come on stay - Just stay tonight
Runaway - You're just a runaway
Runaway - It'll be alright

Now she's walking down a fine line
She told him what would happen next time
Now she's gonna run away

Runaway - Why do you run away
Come on stay - Just stay tonight
Runaway - You're just a runaway
Runaway - It'll be alright

TALK THE TALK

Talk to me tell me what you're thinking
Talk to me say the words I want to hear
I can be entertaining
What do you like what do you want to do
Don't be a - don't be a stranger
I wanna - I wanna take you
Somewhere that - somewhere that we can

Talk the talk
Start up a conversation
Talk the talk
Put me inside your mind

It could be a revelation
Talk the talk
We're talkin' the talk this time

Talk to me I can see you want to

I'LL LET YOU DRIVE

I drive the night to my destination
Locked in my sights in front of me
You've got the map and all the directions
You see all the turns I'd never see

I'll let you drive
Get me out of here
I'll let you drive
Drive away my fear

I'll let you drive
Get me out of here
I'll let you drive
Drive away my fear

On the highway far out of the city
I see the red lights in my mirror dear
We better pull over and talk quickly
Find exactly where we go from here

I'll let you drive
Get me out of here
I'll let you drive
Drive away my fear

I GET LOST SOMETIMES

Sometimes I roam the night
I come home in the morning light
I guess sometimes I get carried away
You know me really good
I don't do what you think I should
But somehow you know it's gonna be okay

I get lost sometimes but you find me
I get lost sometimes
I get lost sometimes but you find me
I get lost sometimes

I get lost sometimes but you find me
I get lost sometimes
I get lost sometimes but you find me
I get lost sometimes

She wakes up to the telephone
Come and drive your boyfriend home
He gave us your number - he's feeling no pain
The little girl he understands
She loves the boy inside the man
Just hurry back to mama - back to mama
She say

I get lost sometimes but you find me
I get lost sometimes
I get lost sometimes but you find me
I get lost sometimes

She got magic - I know it
She got magic - I know it

I WEAR THE FACE

It used to be that life was just a game
Got used to dancing each step the same
Well I got so tired - so disillusioned with it all
Standing at the threshold - waiting for the call

I wear the face of change
It never looks the same
I wear the face of change
My face is changing

I hear someone talking on the telephone
A distant stranger in a monotone
I don't know your name but I recognize the face
We were once the same but in another place

I wear the face of change
It never looks the same
I wear the face of change
My face is changing

LIFE GOES ON

Mama prays her baby grows up big and strong
Oh yeah
Somewhere else a heart has stopped but life goes on
Oh yeah

Life goes on and on
Life is transition
Life goes on - life goes
Life in transition
Life goes on and on
Life is transition
Life goes on - life goes

Papa tells his children don't you be afraid
Oh no
Just mind your business - go on living every day
Oh yeah

Life goes on and on
Life is transition
Life goes on - life goes
Life in transition
Life goes on and on
Life is transition
Life goes on - life goes

Life goes on yeah don't you worry - life goes on
Life goes on - Life goes on - Life goes on - Life goes on -
Mama prays her baby grows up strong - life goes on life goes on
Somewhere else a heart has stopped - life goes on life goes on
Life goes on and on and on and on - on and on and on and on
Oh oh oh

Welcome to the real world

BLACK/WHITE

We are both shadows
Moving on a wall
Two characters both weak & strong
We chant & we dance
We draw ourselves in
Then we run from each other again

Love is so strange
How we change from
Day to night
Love is so strange
How we change from
Black to white
Ever so strange
How we change
From day to night

I draw a picture of your face
Another time another place
We are the ones who fell into this love
We must be in the right place

UNIFORM OF YOUTH

I don't think I like this place
I don't think I like your face
I don't know if I'll stick around
I don't know I just might leave town
I don't care much what people say
Nothing's perfect anyway
No one said that the world was fair
All I want is for you to care

I wear the uniform of youth & hold on
I wear the uniform of youth & hold on

Dress it up - play it down
Take it out & kick it around
Never mind that I'm not like you
I'll just do what I've got to do

DON'T SLOW DOWN

I look into your mind
And see the dream that
I've been searching for
I'll search no more
The age of innocence
Is never truly spent
When there is love
Still there to touch

Don't slow down
The weels are turning
The fire's burning in us now
Don't slow down
Don't lose the magic
We've come too far to turn back now

I ask to share your dreams
Recalling empty scenes you hesitate
It's not too late
I wish into your eyes
The truth of what I am behind the mask
Beyond the past

RUN TO HER

I see myself locked in her arms
She looks inside my soul
She is much too beautiful to ever let go
Time - it passes much too fast
And time - I want to make it last

Oh I run to her
I run to her

Yesterday's a vivid dream
She came into my life
The sun was shining brightly
As we talked into the night
Time - how it passes much too fast
Time - now I want to make it last

INTO MY OWN HANDS

Last night I had a desperate dream
I was standing in the winter rain
Footsteps close behind me
Somebody called out my name

No magic mirror can't erase
These lines of living on my face
Lessons learned & lest

Take my life
Into my own hands
Make this world into my own land
Take this life
I'll take my stand
Take this world into my own hands

I was walking in the summer sun
Thinking that my life had just begun
How wrong could I be

IS IT LOVE

I say I love you
& hold you near me
You say I scare you
Well that's your fear

I know the message
My heart is sending
But you don't read it
You keep me guessing

Is it love is it love
We're after
(Why don't you tell me)
Is it love Is it
Is it love

The broken record
Goes round & round
Within a circle
Without a sound

I'm under water
In overdrive
You hide in laughter
What's on your mind

KYRIE

The wind blows hard against this mountainside
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches in to where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road
My heart is old it holds my memories
My body burns a gemlike flame
Somewhere between the soul & soft machine
Is where I find myself again

Kyrie Eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison
Where I'm going will you follow
Kyrie Eleison
On a highway in the light

When I was young I thought of growing old
Of what my life would mean to me
Would I have followed down my chosen road
Or only wished what I could be

BROKEN WINGS

Baby I don't understand
Why we just can't hold on to each other's hands
This time will be the last I fear unless I make
It all so clear
I need you so

Take these broken wings
& learn to fly again & learn to live so free
& when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up & let us in

Baby I think tonight
We can take what was wrong & make it right
I need you so
Baby it's all I know
What you're half of the flesh & blood that makes me whole
I need you so

TANGENT TEARS

Through all the ragged truth
You left one poignant lie
A nice series of words for good-bye

Who's playing on your team
He has a certain flair
I don't see you around anywhere

I cry when you're not here
I'm cryin' tangent tears
I cry when you're not here
I keep cryin' tangent tears

I'm stuck on interphase
My heart does not forget
Checking out at this point is no sweat

Chill factor number nine
You made my heart go blind
You act so cold but you still look so fine

WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD

I'm cryin' tears of joy
Im' cryin' tears of pain
I'm cryin' tears of joy
They run down my face into a river that winds it's way into your life
Welcome little one
To this place of earth & stone
Welcome little one
All blue eyes & innocence
The world is so much colder
Than your won soft glance

Hey it's a human race
Hey it's a brave new place
Hey now you're at the gate

Welcome to the real world
There's so much to learn
Welcome to the real world

The past is a memory
The chains that were cloking me
I'm cryin' tears of pain
I'm cryin' tears of joy
I see my freedom lying in my arms tonight

Go on...

STAND AND DELIVER

Some poeple hate and expect affection
Some people lie and demand the truth
I gotta ask myself if it's soul deception
Is this a natural thing that we all just do

We take such pleasure from pain
I'm just tired of playing that game
Some things you've got to change

You've got to stand and deliver
With your body and soul
Stand and deliver
Just give me something to hold
Stand and deliver
If the truth can be told
We can make it together
If we stand - stand and deliver

Sometimes my mind drives me to distraction
I want to shut all the windows and lock the doors
Everytime I get a little bit of satisfaction
I feel the walls come crumbling to the floor

But I know in this life
You gotta stand up for what feels right
Each day and every night

You've got to stand and deliver
With your body and soul
Stand and deliver
Just give me something to hold
Stand and deliver
If the truth can be told
We can make it together
If we stand - stand and deliver

HEALING WATERS

Yellow moon
Face of a prophet
Shooting star
Light of the heaven
Shine down shine down
On our tiny enterprise
Where do we go when all our time's been wasted
Just keeping score on who is right or wrong
There's no reason

Follow the road
The road that leads us
Where the healing waters flow

Where do we go
When the world forsakes us
Where the healing waters flow

Sillent god
Moving in my heart
Telling me
Not much I understand
But I - but I
Need to know so I fight on
Here every beat must feed upon the other
When will the lion lie down with the lamb

Follow the road
The road that leads us
Where the healing waters flow

Where do we go
When the world forsakes us
Where the healing waters flow

There is a river running deep
Into my soul
Rushin like a vision over me
It flows

Where do we go when all our time's been wasted
Keeping score of who is right or wrong
There's no reason

Follow the road
The road that leads us
Where the healing waters flow

Where do we go
When the world forsakes us
Where the healing waters flow

DUST

The door slams
Dust falls down between the cracks
Some ran, some promised they'd be back
Saigon all gone ashes to dust
A solo dance a solo dance

And when we leave we leave or dust
We slap our clothes we shake it off
Cambodia Laos Vietnam
Out of the dust reach tiny hands
To touch their fathers in other lands

Love is locked in these lost eyes
Love is lost in these cold eyes
And in these wounds too raw to touch
Lie ashes ashes dust to dust

We are free
We are not alone
Listen to our sound
Take these hands of flesh and bone
Reaching out for love

Discards settle where they must
Never knowing who to trust
And in these dreams that lie in rust
Stir ashes ashes dust to dust

And when we leave we leave or dust
We slap our clothes we shake it off
Cambodia Laos Vietnam
Out of the dust reach tiny hands
To touch their fathers in other lands

Give the children a chance

SOMETHING REAL (INSIDE ME/INSIDE YOU)

Everyone' looking for something real
Everyone's taking all they can steel
Brother to sister, look at each other face to face
There's something missing here in this human race

Inside of me
(All we want is something real)
Is a part of you
(We can make this last forever)
And I know inside of you
(Make a world where we can feel)
Is a part of me
(We will always be together)

Person to person, place to place
We run from each other, lost in the race
Brother to sister, hold on to each other with all we got
Our time is coming, if we're ready or not, ready or not

Inside of me
(All we want is something real)
Is a part of you
(We can make this last forever)
And I know inside of you
(Make a world where we can feel)
Is a part of me
(We will always be together)

THE TUBE

Hi dear what's on tonight
Let's stay up and watch the tube
And bask in the big blue light
Bye bye real life
Checking into checking out
It's saturation time

Perfect faces
Perfect background
Perfect everything

I want to live in a dream that is neverending
I want to live all the wasted time I'm spending
Tonight I can take it all the way
Because tonight I'm everything I wanted to be

Well dear
It's a good thing
I don't have to look at you
And you don't have to look at me
I think that's a good thing

We're perfect strangers
Perfect oh oh oh
Perfect everything

I want to live in a dream that is neverending
I want to live all the wasted time I'm spending
Tonight I can take it all the way
Because tonight I'm everything I wanted to be

BARE MY SOUL

I say these words to ring in your ears
I want these words to sing to your soul
To wrap around your eyes like a glimpse of tomorrow
Today our joy outweighs all our sorrow

I will bare my soul to you
Do anything you ask me
I'll bare my soul to you
This is the best that I can do
I'll bare my soul to you

You think you know the man that is me
The one your heart demands you to see
When fear has made a lie of our perfect perception
The truth of love is in our redemption

I will bare my soul to you
I'll do anything you ask me
I'll bare my soul to you
This is the best that I can do

I will bare my soul to you
Reach out your hands and touch me
And when the storm blows through
I will be there, I'll be there
I'll bare my soul to you

Oh I say these words - they're ringing
Can you hear these words I'm singing
I will bare my soul to you

I will bare my soul to you
I'll do anything you ask me
I'll bare my soul to you
This is the best that I can do

I will bare my soul to you
Reach out your hands and touch me
And when the storm blows through
I will be there, I'll be there
I'll bare my soul to you

CONTROL

This is about control
It's about vision
My vision
My mission
Don't tell me about what you think
'Cause I don't care - no I don't care

We all want control of our destiny
We all want control of our lives
We all want control of each other
We all see the fear in our eyes

We all want control of our destiny
We all want control of our lives
We all want control of each other
We all see the fear in our eyes

We all want control
We all want control
We all want control

An old man was sitting on a corner
He couldn't remember where he lived
I felt so sad until he told me
He knew where he was and that was enough for him

We all want control of our destiny
We all want control of our lives
We all want control of each other
We all see the fear in our eyes

Open my eyes to it
I can see the way too
Open your eyes to it
You can see that way too

WATCHIN THE WORLD

Rockets lauch us to outerspace
Far away from the human wasteland
We're bringing heaven to other worlds
Abandoning the home fires of our birth
There are fools who believe we can't live here as one
There are wisemen who say it still can be done

Who is watching the world
Who is changing the balance of power
Who is watching the world
Are we building a future or just standing still

We will harvest your fields of wheat
For the promise of food to eat
Forging plows from swords of war
We can stop all this fighting and open the door
Only fools would believe we can't live here as one
Who's to say it cannot be done

Who is watching the world
Who is changing the balance of power
Who is watching the world
Are we building a future or just standing still

POWER OVER ME

I sit and watch you sleep
As you dream your dangerous dreams
I feel the healing heat
As the inner voices scream

Your pain is mine
My blood is yours
I feel so helpless just watching you

You have the power over me
I'm rendered helpless
You've got me on my knees

You have the power over me
Nothing is certain
I wait for recovery

They say it's always the same
2 steps forward one step back
Whatever he arranges
We must do the best we can

Your pain is mine
My blood is yours
Can you hear me - I'm calling you

You have the power over me
I'm rendered helpless
You've got me on my knees

You have the power over me
Nothing is certain
I wait for recovery

Look at the power over me
Nothing is certain
You've got me on my knees

MAN OF A THOUSAND DANCES

Who is following me
Who is following me
Should I run should I hide
Should I act like a differnet man
Will I ever face my fear
Who is following me

Standing in the shadows
(I just don't know)
Reaching for the light
(Just give me a sign)
Take this empty spirit
(Where will I go)
Throw away my pride
(What will I find)

Who is watching me
Somebody's watching me
I get so close and lose it all
Get so high and the I fall
But I know through it all
He is watching me

Standing in the shadows
Reaching for the light
Take this empty spirit
Throw away my pride

I'm a man of a thousand dances
I'm a man of a thousand dances
I'm a man of a thousand dances
Just a man and I want to be free

Standing in the shadows
Reaching for the light
Take this empty spirit
Throw away my pride

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

I'm a man of a thousand dances
Just a man of a thousend dreams

THE BORDER

We
We must go on now
Wherever people go who go on together
And now
Try to hold on now
Too many of us have run
Run out of the circle

Are you listening
Are you breathing
I need you near me
No I'm not leaving
I'm in no hurry to do this alone

I am standing here
With arms open wide
I am waiting here heart in my hand
On the border

Dreams
Dreams may seduce you
But sooner or later they're gone
And you're back where you started
Look
Look at these scars now
How many wounds does it take before we are healing

Can we go on now
From what we have done now
Yes we must go on, our questions unanswered
I know what we're after
Is right here in our hands

I am standing here
With arms open wide
I am waiting here heart in my hand
On the border

Every step we take gives us
The strenght to go on
And all the love we make
Gets us closer to home

I can see it all so clearly now
I can hear your voice in a song
And it burns down inside my soul
It takes me down this winding road
We can find our way back home

We
We must go on now
Wherever people go who go on together

3RD MATINEE

 

Meanwhile

I DON'T CARE

Sitting on Sunset
Staring at the ground
Old man on the corner
Screaming at the crowd
Turn your face away
Don't look into his eyes
Nobody's watching
Or listening
He's no one
No one at all

I don't care if you don't care
There's plenty of trouble everywhere
Spinning off into the air
I don't care if you don't care

Hello, are you sleeping
Is anybody home
Your lover is leaving
She'd rather be alone
Try not to think of her
Don't think of her at all
She's not listening
Or crying
Or waiting for you to call

I don't care if you don't care
There's plenty of trouble everywhere
Spinning off into the air
I don't care if you don't care
I don't mind if you don't mind
Minding is a waste of time
Little people say a prayer
I don't care if you don't care

Turn your face away
Don't look into their eyes
Nobody's watching
Or listening
There's no one
No one at all

I don't care if you don't care
There's plenty of trouble everywhere
Spinning off into the air
I don't care if you don't care
I don't mind if you don't mind
Minding is a waste of time
Little people say a prayer
I don't care if you don't care

FREEDOM ROAD

See the lines upon your face
Speak your own lines in the play
Five o'clock it's almost over
Keep your head down now
Driving back through inner space
Past the docks and concrete faces
Six o'clock you're nearly home now
Keep your head up

All along to freedom road
Tryin' to find a way back home
No matter how far
Now matter how long
Let the candle light your soul
All along the freedom road
No matter how far
No matter how long

See the lines upon your face
Hair is thinning, pushing forty
Sixty-five it's almost over
Keep your head down now
Wife and kids, set in your ways
Keep the job, you can't replace it
Count the days until it's over
Keep your head up

All along to freedom road
Tryin' to find a way back home
No matter how far
Now matter how long
Let the candle light your soul
All along the freedom road
No matter how far
No matter how long

HOLIDAY FOR SWEET LOUISE

10/15 Louise is ready
Down the stairs her car is waiting
In the mirror a perfect face
In her mind a better place
Ever tired every day
Same old lover
Same old life
No desire to be a wife
Locks her heart and leaves a letter
She wants

Bags of money
(And I watch her walk away)
Milk and honey
(Searching for something)
Build a castle for you and me
No job, no boss
No stone, no moss
Everybody on your knees
Holiday for sweet Louise

On her way she takes a lover
Takes him in and unde cover
All the way to ecstacy
Drops him off and takes another
On and on and on it goes
Always wanting
Always taking
In and out of strangers' clothes
Close her eyes
And all she sees

Bags of money
(And I watch her walk away)
Milk and honey
(Searching for something)
Build a castle for you and me
No job, no boss
No stone, no moss
Everybody on your knees
Holiday for sweet Louise

French perfume
And nothing cheaper
Silver shoes
No one can keep her
Ooo fiesta takes its toll
Yes Louise is on a roll for

Bags of money
(And I watch her walk away)
Milk and honey
(Searching for something)
Build a castle for you and me
No job, no boss
No stone, no moss
Everybody on your knees
Holiday for sweet Louise

SHE DREAMS

Then I saw her
Then I saw her
Hiding from the rain
Through a revolving door
She went the other way
And kept walking

A million disconnected things
Run through her head like mannequins
And all the voiceless words they say
Remind her she's alone again
Keep walking
Keep walking

She takes the subway down
To an empty room in another part of town
Arms 'round a violin and a fashion magazine

She dreams of everything
Her soul is singing
There's nothing missing
And no one's listening
She dreams of everything

On a Staten Island ferry in a see-through coat
Reads every word that Kafka wrote
She memorizes all the quotes
But doesn't get the dirty jokes
She's walking
Keep walking

Down to the city hall
With graffitied walls
To the anniversary waltz
She plays her violin
And the overture begins

She dreams of everything
Her soul is singing
There's nothing missing
And no one's listening
She dreams of everything

ORDINARY DAY

The phone keeps ringing in the corner
An empty bed against the wall
Her naked beauty goes untouched
She sits and stares
She wants so much

Where did it go
We had it all
Our little home
So happy

Shade your eyes
Hold your ears now
No one cries, not a tear
No one hears a sound
The list goes on
It's no one's song
Just an ordinary day

Inside the window
Faces screaming
Outside the children
Play alone
The family secrets
Run so deep
No one can talk
No one can sleep

Leave us alone
We're happy
Our little home
So happy

Shade your eyes
Hold your ears now
No one cries, not a tear
No one hears a sound
The list goes on
It's no one's song
Just an ordinary day

Be still
My little darling
I promise to take you away

Where did it go
We had it all
Our little home
So happy

Shade your eyes
Hold your ears now
No one cries, not a tear
No one hears a sound
The list goes on
It's no one's song
Just an ordinary day

FAMILY TREE

You came back to get me
In the desert where I broke down
Stuck in the heat of my father's fire
The sun burned away our clothes
I stood there before you
I heard you clearly without a sound

Teach me how to listen
I am learning how to hear
Catch me I am falling
From the family tree
You know I couldn't see you
Had to shatter every mirror
Catch me I am falling
From the family tree

The lines of your hands
Your face
Your eyes
Draw a picture in my spinning head
The lines of your body
Join together to form me
Come to join me in this desert bed

Teach me how to listen
I am learning how to hear
Catch me I am falling
From the family tree
You know I couldn't see you
Had to shatter every mirror
Catch me I am falling
From the family tree

Standing under the family tree
I touched your crying face
All of your tears began to freeze
And we left them there as power
For the spirit of the Indian and the owl

Teach me how to listen
I am learning how to hear
Catch me I am falling
From the family tree
You know I couldn't see you
Had to shatter every mirror
Catch me I am falling
From the family tree

ECHO HILL

I fail to say the things I feel
I keep them locked away, away
But I see you
I feel you
I wanted you to know

A place beyond
A place so far
We go in blind
We trust
We are
I want you
I need you
I wanted you to know

Meet me up on Echo Hill
When darkness falls
Our love lies still
When the passion fades away
Meet me up on Echo Hill

A healing touch
A trembling hand
The language of another land
But I hear yiu
I feel you
Just wanted you to know

Sadness for the wasted years
Pouring out the bitter tears
As they touch me
They heal me
That's all I need to know

Meet me up on Echo Hill
When darkness falls
Our love lies still
When the passion fades away
Meet me up on Echo Hill

ALL THE WAY HOME

All through the winter
Saving the money you'd spend
In bed with the TV on
Hiding from the rent
Warmer days
Driving out in your car
Holidays
Never going too far
Two young boys
Nine and ten
A Catholic school child
A public school friend
Fields of houses
Troubled child
Keeping it all inside

And the drummers played
On a perfect day
And the family circled the stone
We bowed our heads
As the drummers played
A song to carry you
All the way home

Pack your bags
Leavin' it all behind
And all your years
For whatever you could find
Open highway
Golden land
Trade in your cards for another hand
Off to nowhere,
Running wild
Keeping it all inside

And the drummers played
On a perfect day
And the family circled the stone
We bowed our heads
As the drummers played
A song to carry you
All the way home

SILVER CAGE

TRUST SOMEBODY

Rita believes in miracles
She wants to trust somebody
She wants to trust someone
She waits in the church 'til everybody's gone
She wants to trust somebody
She wants to trust someone

But you don't have to go on
Keepin' all the love wrapped up inside
I will be an open door
And you don't have to pay a price
'Cause it ain't something you can buy
There's nothing to be sacrificed

I know she's waiting for the sky to fall
She wants to love somebody
Yeah, she's gotta love someone
And all of the tears she's cried
Will vanish if she could just find someone
You gotta love somebody
You gotta trust someone

But you don't have to go on
Keepin' all the love wrapped up inside
I will be an open door
And you don't have to pay a price
'Cause it ain't something you can buy
There's nothing to be sacrificed

All my faith
All my hope
All my love
Waits for you
Forevermore
And I will sing...

All my faith
All my hope
All my love
Waits for you
Forevermore
And I will sing...

But you don't have to go on
Keepin' all the love wrapped up inside
I will be an open door
And you don't have to pay a price
'Cause it ain't something you can buy
There's nothing to be sacrificed

Rita believes in miracles
She wants to trust somebody
She wants to trust someone
'Til the sun goes down
She wants to love somebody
She wants to trust someone

MEANWHILE

And in between
We'll work it out
Wait for another scene
To come about
'Cause we have our love
And that makes us free
It's never over

Meanwhile
The sky will always be
Meanwhile
The birds will always fly
Meanwhile
The earth beneath my feet
We will lways be

Take a quiet step
To another life
With a gentle voice to clear my mind
I can feel your soul
And that makes me free
It's never over

Meanwhile
The child will always be
Meanwhile
The love will keep us free
Meanwhile
The peace I hope we'll see
We will always be

We have our love
And that's all we need
It's never over

Meanwhile
The sky will always be
Meanwhile
The dove will always fly
Meanwhile
The earth beneath our feet
We will always be

Meanwhile
The words will always be
Meanwhile
The sun will always shine
Meanwhile
The truth I pray we'll find

Shelter me

THE BEST THING

It's just survival
That teaches us when to run
But I've got no place left to run to
And it's just the evening
That teaches the sky to fall
But here in the darkness I can see it all

I just needed to remember
What your love has meant to me
You get all the good things
In this life for free
And you're still the best thing
That ever happened to me

It's five in the morning
You're still inside my head
Walking the road we both know so well
And it's never easy
To go back to where you were
Still tempted by all the things
We left here for

I just needed to remember
What your love has done to me
You get all the good things
In this life for free
And you're still the best thing
That ever happened to me

I'll sing you my life
With every breath I take
I'll reach out for you
Each morning when I awake

I just needed to remember
What your love has meant to me
You get all the best things
In this life for free
And you're still the best thing
That ever happened to me

MY OXYGEN

I take each breath as it is my first
I hold it there deep inside me
Until I'm 'bout to burst
I speak each word as if it is your name
I move my lips ... taste the moment
Still it sounds the same
Your hand moves and so does mine
Our hearts beat
Our bodies keeping time

You are my oxygen
I breathe you in ... I breathe you out
You are my oxygen ... you are my love
You are what life's about

I take each breath as it is my last
You never know what came so slowly
Could leave us on so fast
I take each step as if it is to you
I hear your voice ... I feel your presence
In everything I do
My body sleeps ... your lips revive
Our eyes meet and I know I'm alive

You are my oxygen
I breathe you in ... I breathe you out
You are my oxygen ... you are my love
You are what life's about

The air is thick ... the flower sweet
The shadow comes down
Tonight the moon is at my feet
And I breathe you in
I breathe you in ... to me

And I'm nobody without you
If you were not here what would I do

You are my oxygen
I breathe you in ... I breathe you out
You are my oxygen ... you are my love
You are what life's about

EVEN THE PAIN

Three long years now
Since I've seen her face
Three long years now
Since she left this angry place
Her destiny called her
But too soon for her age
If I'd only listened
She might be here today

And we're all gonna ride this river
And we're all gonna feel the rain
And we all take what we're given
Even the pain

Cold tired and hungry
Now she's movin' with the wind
And all i do is worry
'Bout the pain she must be in
If only I could see you
Tell me why you didn't write
Now there's no one to defend you
And I can't sleep at night

And we're all gonna ride this river
And we're all gonna feel the rain
And we all take what we're given
Even the pain
And we see that light before us
Through the darkness and the shame
But it all breaks down
Yeah it all breaks down
Even the pain

So roll on mighty river
Take us down to the sea
Wash away the muddy water
And set us free

And we're all gonna ride this river
And we're all gonna feel the rain
And we all take what we're given
Even the pain

SHELTER ME

Ever since I can remember
I always tried to do what's right
"Just keep your chin up boy" they said ...
Don't you ever try to back down
You gotta fight to get what's yours
But sometimes the fight just ain't there

Shelter me
I am one who needs another
I'm a book without a cover
Cover me
Shelter me
Like a child gently sleeping
Like a mother's vigil keeping
Shelter me

Out on a distant lonely highway
So many miles from anywhere
I'm gonna lay my troubles down
And I will never return there
I don't need to look back now
Gotta find where love lies somehow

Shelter me
I am one who needs another
I'm a book without a cover
Cover me
Shelter me
Like a child gently sleeping
Like a mother's vigil keeping
Shelter me

Hold out my hand ... I reach for you
I see your light
I lay my body down
And you rush over me ... rush over me

Shelter me
I am one who needs another
I'm a book without a cover
Cover me
Shelter me
Like a child gently sleeping
Like a mother's vigil keeping
Shelter me

LET ME DOWN EASY

You whispered my name in the dark
Told me the secrets you'd never tell
We dreamed the same dream
Loved in between
And never could think of goodbye

But time has a mind of its own
Faith can be frozen like winter
Promises made suddenly fade away
'Til you're standing alone

Mother nature's arms
Keep me safe and warm
Hold me until it's over
When the shadows fall
When you've said it all
Won't you just let me down easy

Everything takes a new turn
Everyone passes this way one time
Life has its way
Love has its day
And nothing's forever my love

Mother nature's arms
Keep me safe and warm
Hold me until it's over
When the shadows fall
When you've said it all
Won't you just let me down easy

You whispered "Oh baby hold on"
As if your love could save me ... save me

Mother nature's arms
Keep me safe and warm
Hold me until it's over
When the shadows fall
When you've said it all
Won't you just let me down easy

You whispered my name in the dark
Told me the secrets you'd never tell
We dreamed the same dream
Loved in between
And never could think of goodbye

A SIMPLE LIFE

Show me the magic
I must have lost it somewhere
In my dreams so far away
I turn around
Everything's changing but me
Where is the soul in my song

Once there was heaven in my eyes
Whatever happened to those skies
Somebody show me to get back
To a simple life

And out of the blue
Temptations all around me
A train came along and I got on board
I danced with the darkness
Skies were the limit
But it's such a long way to fall

Once there was heaven in my eyes
Whatever happened to those skies
Somebody show me to get back
To a simple life
And I've done my time in paradise
I've tried it all maybe once or twice
Could somebody show me how to get back
To a simple life

Somebody show me to get back
To a simple life ...
And I've done my time in paradise
And I've tried it all maybe once or twice
But somehow the grass was alwys greener
On the other side ...
And once there was heaven in my eyes
And whatever happened to those skies
Can somebody show me
Show me a simple life
I've tried it all and I've paid the price
Now I've gotta find my way back
To a simple life

DEPENDENCE

What is this ... all of my darkest fears
Why have they gathered here
To watch a fool go down
Go away ... why would you waste your time
Here where the sun won't shine
There's nothing left for you

I can't go on this way
Knowing you don't want me
I can't go on this way
Knowing you don't need me
I can't go on this way
When everything I do depends on you
Depends on you

I had it all ... one of the sunny boys
Yeah my pride and joy
You were always there by me
But funny how fast sunny times go by
Fade to a darkened sky
And a lot of useless toys

I can't go on this way
Knowing you don't want me
I can't go on this way
Knowing you don't need me
I can't go on this way
When every step I do depends on you

I can't go on this way
Knowing you don't want me
I can't go on this way
Knowing you don't need me
I can't go on this way
When everything I do depends on you
Depends on you

JUST TO LOVE YOU

Maybe my words come out wrong
Maybe my emotions don't sing like a love song
But maybe I only want to be with you
I might seem distant ... maybe I am
But I have never been one to pretend girl
You are all my heart's connected to

And the only way I know how to show you
Is just to love you
There is nothing I wouldn't go through
Just to love you ...
Just to love you

Talk about conviction ... try to understand
I wrestle with it like any other man
Still every man needs something sacred baby
I can say for certain I would be a fool
To go too far away from you
You are all my heart's connected to

And the only way I know how to show you
Is just to love you
There is nothing I wouldn't go through
Just to love you ...
Just to love you

I might not have the right words baby
But I know how to hold you tight
And I don't remember every thrill we've had
But there's gonna be one tonight

You are all my heart's connected to

And the only way I know how to show you
Is just to love you
There is nothing I wouldn't go through
Just to love you
Yeah the only way I know how to show you
Is just to love you ...
Just to love you
There's no limit I wouldn't go to
Just to love you ...
Just to love you

IF ALL ELSE FAILS

You were the little angel
Everybody noticed you
Had a shining light of beauty
Only I could see through
And I thought you were something special
Even as a child at play
But you said a man in shining armor
Would carry you off someday

Take my love wherever you go
Whatever you do
I'll try to be strong for you
Keep my face inside of your mind
Don't let it fade
Or let it get lost to time
'Cause when you finally see through the veil
Through all of the hopes and dreams
Your fairy tales
I will be waiting for you
Waiting for you ... if all else fails
If all else fails

You said there was something out there
That you and you alone could find
And I tried in vain to tell you
It was all inside your mind
But I'd rather let you have your freedom
Than live with the bitterness
But it's so damn hard to do it
So baby just remember this
No matter how it ends
I'll always be your friend
Don't ever be afraid ... I'm with you
I'm with you

And when you finally see through the veil
Through all of your hopes and dreams
Your little fairy tales
I will be waiting for you
Waiting for you ... if all else fails
If all else fails
Don't be afraid ... if all else fails

HEAVEN IS 10 ZILLION LIGHT YEARS AWAY

They say that heaven is
10 zillion light years away
And just the pure at heart
Will walk her righteous street someday
They say that heaven is
10 zillion light years away
But if there is a God ... we need him now
Where is your God
Taht's what my friends ask me
But I say it's taken him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come
Tell me people ...
Why can't they say that hate
is 10 zillion light years away
Why can't the light of good
Shine some love on everybody
Why does my color white
Supposed to make me a better man
I thought this world was made
For every man and every woman
He loves us all ... that's what my heart tells me
But I say it's taken him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come
But in my heart I can feel it ... feel his spirit
Yeah I can feel it ... feel his spirit
Let love shine within to save our empty souls
For those who don't believe
Will never see the light
Where is my God ... he lives inside of me
I say it's taken him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come
If you open up your heart
You can feel it ... feel his spirit
Oh feel it ... feel his spirit
