"Lullaby"

on candystripe legs spiderman comes
softly through the shadow of the evening sun
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
looking for the victim shivering in bed
searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
room! and there is nothing i can do when i
realise with freight that the spiderman is having
me for dinner tonight

quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
arms are all around me and his tongue in my
eyes "be still be calm be quiet now my precious
boy don't struggle like that or i will only love
you more for it's much too late to get away or
turn on the light the spiderman is having you
for dinner tonight"

and i feel like i'm being eaten by a thousand
million shivering furry holes and i know that in
the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
and the spiderman is always hungry...


La Luna

I remember when I met you
All the stars were hanging in mid-air
In these moments - nothing mattered
But the way you caught me in your stare
We were walking - we were talking
We were laughing about the state of our lives
How our fates brought us together
As the moon was rising in your eyes

On and on the night was falling
Deep down inside us
On and on a light was shining right through

Ah La Luna La Luna
The night that we fell under the spell of the moon
Ah La Luna La Luna
The light that will bring me back to you
The light of La Luna

In the hotels, in the cafes
All the world was mad with romance
In the harbor moonlit water
All the ships were swaying in a dance
Then you held me and you kissed me
And I knew I had to be with you
You didn't ask me you just took me
To the tiny bed in your tiny room

On and on the band was playing
A song of surrender
On and on the sun would soon break through

Ah La Luna La Luna
The night that we fell under the spell of the moon
Ah La Luna La Luna
The light that will bring me back to you
The light of La Luna (2)

Now I walk along the streets of Marseilles
The winter sky is cold and gray
And I don't know why I left you that day
And I don't know where you are


Circle in the Sand

Sundown all around
Walking thru the summer's end
Waves crash baby, don't look back
I won't walk away again
Oh, baby, anywhere you go,
We are bound together
I begin, baby, where you end
Some things are forever !
Circle in the sand
'Round and 'round
Never ending love is what we've found
And you complete the heart of me
Our love is all we need
Circle in the sand
Cold wind, tide moves in
Shiver in the salty air
Day breaks, my heart aches
I will wait for you right here.
Oh, baby when you look for me
Can you see forever ?
I begin baby, where you end
We belong together
Circle in the sand
'Round and 'round
Rising of the moon as the sun goes down
And you complete the heart of me
Our love is all we need
Circle in the sand
Circle in the sand
Baby can you hear me ?
Can you hear me calling ?


Heaven is a place on Earth

Oh, baby do you know what that's worth?
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth.
They say in Heaven, love comes first
We'll make Heaven a place on Earth
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth

When the night falls down,
I wait for you, and to come around
And the world's alive
With the sound of kids on the street outside
When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we're spinnin' with the stars above
And you lift me up
In the wave of love

Oh, baby do you know what that's worth?
Oh Heaven is a place on Earth
They say in Heaven, love comes first
We'll make Heaven a place on Earth
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth

When I feel alone, I reach for you and to bring me home
When I'm lost at sea
I hear your voice, and it carries me
In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby, I was afraid before
I'm not afraid, any more

Oh, baby do you know what that's worth?
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth
The say in Heaven, love comes first
We'll make Heaven a place on earth
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth

In this world we're just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
I'm not afraid, any more

Oh, baby do you know what that's worth?
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth
They say in Heaven, love comes first
We'll make Heaven a place on Earth
Oh, Heaven is a place on Earth 


Leave a light on

Take my hand
Tell me what you are feeling
Understand
This is just the beginning
Although I have to go
It makes me feel like crying
I don't know when I'll see you again
Darling leave a light on for me
I'll be there before you close the door
To give you all the love that you need
Darling leave a light on for me
'cause when the world takes me away
You are still the air that I breathe
I can't explain I just don't know
Just how far I have to go
But darling I'll keep the key
Just leave a light on for me
Yes I know
What I'm asking is crazy
You could go
Just get tired of waiting
But if I lose your love
Torn out by my desire
That would be the one regret of my life
Just like a spark lights up the dark
Baby that's your heart


Sun 

Now you know it’s always been
Suddenly clear, perfectly near
Reaching up to turn within
It’s the moment of trust
We are stardust

No place, no face, no time
Nothing to know, nothing to find
You were born to be
You only have to see

You are the sun
You are the sun

Turn away from cold and the night
Turn your face to the sun
We are truth, we are one
Turn your heart to love and to light
The magic is there
You can shine anywhere


And if the light inside becomes so bright that you can’t hide
Go on and let it show, let it glow, let it grow

You are the sun
You are the sun

Indescribable, indefinable, undeniable
It’s so wonderful
Out of space and time
Indescribable, indefinable, undeniable
It’s so magical
Out of space and time

We are the sun, we are the sun
We are the sun, we are the sun.


Africa 

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in 12:30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way,
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, It's waiting there for you

CHORUS:
It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become

CHORUS

(Instrumental break)

Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you

It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa, I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never have


Looking Through Patient Eyes

Whatever it is I do, I try to think about you.
I have a love for you that nothing hides.
Whatever it is I do, I'm only thinking of you.
I hope you look at me through patient eyes.

I've become amused.
I've become blind.
I've become what I know not breathes.
You seem illiterate to all my emotions.
I stand corrected, how well you read.
You speak the truth, you speak the me.
You feel the love I have yet to find.
I know it's there, I know it's there.
But I let the sandcastles kill my mind.
Pathetic me, I long to be you.
I think I'm close but i stand so far.
The turbulent one sheds a turbulent tear.
I miss the Love only 'cause they starve'.
Oil and water, lust and sympathy.
I life and death my way through the sun.
Where originates all the pain that leaves,
My memory a traumatic sponge and sings to you.

Well define my love with attitude.
Open up your mind and it will sing to you.
You can always tell.
But I know remorse so well.
I left reality early due to the lack of love... reason.

(Chorus)
Whatever it is I do, I try to think about you.
I have a love for you that nothing hides.
Whatever it is I do, I'm only thinking of you.
I hope you look at me through patient eyes.

The channel, a professional liar.
How I long to contradict those vibes.
Joni help me, I think I'm falling.
It's not the love and I quest the why.
I don't know, If I'm right, I'm right.
But if I'm wrong then show me I'm wrong.
The fear of pity is always awake.
But infinite sympathy is completely gone.
It's the windows, the doors, the passageways to the truth.
Oh my god, it echoes the mind.
In total recall as wild as the deuce.
And so deceiving is the clouded heart.
So superficial is the open wound.
I caress the infinite light.
That even at night overshadows the moon that sings to you.

Well, define my love, that lives with in you.
Even when I die, it will sing to you.
You can only tell if remorse has done you well...
The misconstrued my answers due to the
Lack of love... reason.

Whatever it is I do, I try to think about you.
I seek the sympathy and I can't lie.
Whatever it is I Do, I'm only thinkin' of you.
I hope you look at me through patient eyes. 


The Ways Of The Wind

Holding on is like the ways of the wind,
Holding on is like the ways of the wind

I wore a ring that was taken so hastely,
Thin king naively that it guaranteed my safety
I'm looking at eyes that have stumbled across a shooting star
Saying that's alright, i know the kind of man you are

Holding on is like the ways of the wind,
Holding on is like the ways of the wind

How many things i recall i can't take too far
She's good at collecting
And counting on the things you are
Forever racing the flames she loved to put me through
I was never a good seahorse
But i can practice rides on you
Another world, another space,
Another mind insists i'm crying
I once experienced time with you
Now a ll exists through rage and sighing
Simon says i love you
But not as much as you display
Who says its alright
Shen simon says she's yesterday

Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Like holding on a nova star
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
The constant search for who you are
Oh, life

Underneath love's theme lies a superficial chain
Whatever seduced the barrier
Thinks everything should stay the same
I'm meeting mind say,
Hi i think i love you
I never used to run from love
But calculate what i've been through.
Whatever love, whatever vibe,
Whenever i'm convinced you're lying
Ask me for my mind and i
Will ask you why your sighs are dying
Introduce the melancholy
I've felt since last i saw you
You say it's alright
But i'm crushed till it decides upon you

Holding on is like the ways of the wind
I only hope you'll understand
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Finding you've no place to stand

Send my deepest sympathy
To the flowers of december's garden.
What's for sale of you're emotions.
Tell me. trust can't buy me love.
Well, that's ok
Tell me of your adventures, you know.
I bet i could survive the wind if
Curiosity's killed the snow for real.

Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Like holding on a nova star
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
The constant search for who you are
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Like holding on a nova star
Holding on is like the ways of the wind
Finding a place to stand

"Last Christmas"

[Chorus (2x):]
Last Christmas
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
This year
To save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special.

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye.
Tell me, baby,
Do you recognize me?
Well,
It's been a year,
It doesn't surprise me
(Merry Christmas)

I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, "I love you,"
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been.
But if you kissed me now
I know you'd fool me again.

[Chorus 2x]

Oh, oh, baby.

A crowded room,
Friends with tired eyes.
I'm hiding from you
And your soul of ice.
My god I thought you were someone to rely on.
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart.
A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh-hoo.
Now I've found a real love, you'll never fool me again.

[Chorus 2x]

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special.

Special...
Someone...


"Club Tropicana"

Let me take you to the place
Where membership's a smiling face,
Brush shoulders with the stars.
Where strangers take you by the hand,
And welcome you to wonderland -
From beneath their panamas...

[Chorus:]
Club Tropicana, drinks are free,
Fun and sunshine - there's enough for everyone.
All that's missing is the sea,
But don't worry, you can suntan!

Castaways and Lovers meet,
Then kiss in Tropicana's heat,
Watch the waves break on the bay.
Soft white sands, a blue lagoon,
Cocktail time, a summer's tune,
A whole night's holiday!

[Chorus]

Pack your bags,
And leave tonight.
Don't take your time,
Gotta move your feet, don't you miss the flight!
Cool, cool, cool, cool

[Chorus]

Cool, cool, cool, cool 


"Father Figure"

That's All I Wanted
Something special, something sacred -
In your eyes
For just one moment
To be bold and naked
At your side

Sometimes i think that you'll never
Understand me
Maybe this time is forever..
Say it can be

That's all you wanted
Something special, someone sacred -
In your life
Just for one moment
To be warm and naked
At my side

Sometimes i think that you'll never
Understand me
But something tells me together
We'd be happy

(baby)
I will be your father figure
(oh baby)
Put your tiny hand in mine
(i'd love to)
I will be your preacher teacher
(be your daddy)
Anything you have in mind
(it would make me)
I will be your father figure
(very happy)
I have had enough of crime
(please let me)
I will be the one who loves you -
Until the end of time

That's all i wanted
But sometimes love can be mistaken
For a crime
That'sail i wanted
Just to see my baby's
Blue eyed shine
This time i think that my lover
Understands me
If we have faith in each other
Then we can be
Strong

I will be your father figure
Put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher
Anything you have in mind
I will be your father figure
I have had enough of crime
I will be the one who toves you
Until the end of time

If you are the desert
I'll be the sea
If you ever hunger -
Hunger for me
Whatever you ask for
That's what i'll be. .

So when you remember the ones who have lied
Who said that they cared
But then laughed as you cried
Beautiful darling
Don't think of me

Because all i ever wanted
It's in your eyes baby, baby
And love can't lie. No...
(greet me with the eyes of a child)
(heaven is a kiss and a smile)
Just hold on, hold on
I won't let you go, my baby

I will be your father figure
Put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher
Anything you have in mind
Will be your father figure
Have had enough of crime
So i am gonna love you)
Until the end of time
Will be your father
Will be your preacher
'Ii be your daddy
Will be the one who loves you until the end of time 


"Freedom '90"

I won't let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's the one good thing that i've got
I won't let you down
So please don't give me up
Because i would really, really love to stick around

Heaven knows i was just a young boy
Didn't know what i wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirls pride and joy
And i guess it was enough for me
To win the race? A prettier face!
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll tv
But today the way i play the game is not the same
No way
Think i'm gonna get me some happy
I think there's something you should know
I think it's time i told you so
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone else i've got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these ties and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that i don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you rake
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take
Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy

What a kick just a buddy and me
We had every big-shot goodtime band on the run boy
We were living in a fantasy
We won the race
Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face
For the boys on mtv
But today the way i play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
Now i'm gonna get myself happy


Simply the Best

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire 
You come to me, come to me wild and wild 
When you come to me 
Give me everything I need 
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams 
Speak a language of love like you know what it means 
And it can't be wrong 
Take my heart and make it strong baby 

You're simply the best, better than all the rest 
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met 
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say 
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead 

In your heart I see the star of every night and every day 
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away 
Just as long as I'm here in your arms 
I could be in no better place 

You're simply the best, better than all the rest 
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met 
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say 
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead 

Each time you leave me I start losing control 
You're walking away with my heart and my soul 
I can feel you even when I'm alone 
Oh baby, don't let go


"Careless Whisper"

I Feel So Unsure
As I take your hand
And lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies
Something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen
And all it's sad goodbyes

[Chorus:]
I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
I should have known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I've been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Time can never mend
The careless whisper of a good friend
To the heart and mind
Ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find

[Chorus]

Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say
We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now who's gonna dance with me
Please stay

[Chorus]

Now that you've gone
Now that you've gone
Now that you've gone
Was what I did so wrong
So wrong that you had to leave me alone
