We're Not Right | Silver Lining | White Ladder
This Year's Love | Sail Away|Say Hello, Wave Goodbye


Please Forgive Me

Please forgive me if I act alittle strange
for I know not what I do
feels like lightning running through my veins
everytime I look at you
everytime I look at you

help me out here all my words are falling short
and there's so much I want to say
want to tell you just how good it feels
when you look at me that way
when you look at me that way

throw a stone and watch the ripples flow
moving out across the bay
like a stone I fall into your eyes
deep into some mystery
deep into that mystery

I got half a mind to scream out loud
I got half a mind to die
so I won't ever have to lose you girl
won't ever have to say goodbye
I won't ever have to lie
won't ever have to say goodbye

Please forgive me if I act alittle strange
for I know not what I do
feels like lightning running through my veins
everytime I look at you
everytime I look at you
everytime I look at you
everytime I look at you

Babylon

Friday night I'm goin nowhere all the lights are changing green to red
Turning over tv stations situations running through my head
Lookng back through time you know its clear that i've been blind
I've been a fool
To open up my heart to all that jealousy that bitterness that ridicule

Saturday I'm running wild and all the lights are changing red to green
Moving through the crowds and pushing chemicals are running through my blood stream
I only wish that you were here you know i'm seeing it so clear
I've been afraid to show you how i really feel, admit to some of those bad mistakes i've made

And if you want it just come and get it, crying out loud
The love that i was giving you was never in doubt
Let go of your heart let go of your head and feel it now
Let go of your heart let go of your head and feel it now babylon
Babylon

Sunday all the lights of London shining sky is fading red to blue
Kicking through the autumn leaves and wondering where it is you might be going to
Turning back for home you know I'm feeling so alone I can't believe
Climbing on the stair i turn around to you see you smiling in front of me

And if you want it just come and get it, crying out loud
The love that i was giving you was never in doubt
Let go of your heart let go of your head and feel it now
Let go of your heart let go of your head and feel it now
Let go of your heart let go of your head and feel it now
Let go of your heart let go of your head and feel it now babylon

My oh my

What on earth is going on in my heart
Has it turned as cold as stone
Seems these days i don't feel anything
Unless it cuts me right down to the bone
What on earth is going on in my heart

Cause my oh my you know it just don't stop
Its in my mind i want to tear it up
Been trying to fight it trying to turn it off
But its not enough
It takes a lot of love it takes a lot of love my friend
To keep your heart from phrasing to push on to the end

What on earth is going on in my head
You know i used to be so sure
You know i used to be so definite
Thought i knew what love was for
I look aroudn these days i'm not so sure
No na na

My oh my you know it just don't stop
Its in my mind i want to tear it up
Been trying to fight it trying to turn it off
But its not enough
It takes a lot of love it takes a lot of love my friend
To keep your heart from phrasing to push on to the end

My oh my you know I just cant win
I burn it down it comes right back again
What kind of world is this we're livin in
Where you never win
It takes a lot of love it takes a lot of love these days
To keep your heart from phrasing to keep your spirit free

My oh my

My oh my you know it just don't stop
Its in my mind i want to tear it up
Been trying to fight it trying to turn it off
But its not enough
It takes a lot of love it takes a lot of love my friend
To keep your heart from phrasing to push on till the end

My oh my you know it just don't stop...

We're Not Right

Feel the weight of the passing time
of the crazy faces run through my mind
and this song has brought a teardrop to my eye
can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right

see this world that I can't relate in
everything must accelerate
Betty Forde oh won't you be my valentine
we can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right
we can't tell the bottle from the mountain top now my hands are shaking but I just can't stop
can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right

can't tell the bottle from the mountain top now my knees are shaking but i just can't stop
can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right

Now i'm weak and my head is sore and i feel like i can't go on no more
come in here where normal rules do not apply
can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right
can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right
can't tell the bottle from the mountain top no we're not right
yeah yeah

Silver Lining

Take the silver lining
keep it in your own sweet hand
then shine it when the light is burning red
shine it in the twilight
shine it on the cold cold ground
shine it till these walls come tumbling down

We were born with our eyes wide open
so alive with wild hope now
can you tell me why
time after time they drag you down
down in the darkness deep
fools in their madness all around
know there the light don't sleep

Step into the silence
take it in your own sweet hands
and sprinkle it like diamonds
all accross these lands
blazing in the morning
wearing like an iron skin
only thing's worth living for are innocence and magic baby

We were born with our eyes wide open
so alive with wild hope now
can you tell me why
time after time they drag you down
down in the darkness deep
fools in their madness all around
know there the light don't sleep

We were born with our eyes wide open
so alive with wild hope now
can you tell me why
time after time they drag you down
down in the darkness deep
fools in their madness all around
know there the light don't sleep
know there the light don't sleep
don't sleep

Time after time they drag you down
down in the darkness deep
fools in their madness all around
know there the light don't sleep
know there the light don't sleep

White Ladder
White ladder
Water and wine
Forever crying
Oh time
Don't wanna feel tonight
There's no rhyme or reason to life
This sweet life

White river
Thunder and war
Forever crying
Oh no
Don't wanna feel tonight
There's no rhyme or reason to life
This sweet life

To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another valentine
A burning flame
To the night another body
To the night another name
To the night another valentine
A burning flame

White ladder
Water and wine
Don't wanna feel tonight

This Year's Love

This years love it better last
Heaven knows its high time
I've been waiting on my own too long
And when you hold me like you do it feels so right oh now
I start to forget how my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you can't go on

Turning circles time again
Cut like a knife, oh now
If you love me I got to know for sure
Cause it takes something more this time than sweet sweet lies oh now,
Before I open up my arms and fall, losing all control,
Every dream inside my soul, when you kiss me on that midnight street,
Sweep me off my feet, singing ain't this life so sweet

This years love it better last

This years love it better last
Cause who's to worry if our hearts get torn
When the hurt gets thrown
Don't you know this life goes on
Won't you kiss me on that midnight street,
Sweep me off my feet, singing ain't this life so sweet

This years love it better last
This years love it better last
This years love it better last
This years love it better last
This years love it better last
whoah ah
This years love it better last

Sail Away

sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hand
sail away with me honey now, now, now
sail away with me, what will be will be
I wanna hold you now, now, now

crazy skies are wild above me now
winter howling at my face
and everything i held so dear
disappeared without a trace

through all the times I tasted love
never knew quite what i had
little darling if you hear me now
never needed you so bad

spinning round my head

sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hand
sail away with me honey now, now, now
sail away with me, what will be will be
I wanna hold you now, now, now

I been talking drunken gibberish
falling in and out of bars
trying to get some explanation here
for the way some people are
how did it come so far

sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hand
sail away with me honey now, now, now
sail away with me, what will be will be
I wanna hold you now, now, now
0
sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hand
sail away with me honey now, now, now
sail away with me, what will be will be
I wanna hold you now, now, now

sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hand
sail away with me honey now, now, now
sail away with me, what will be will be
I wanna hold you now, now, now

it break me up if you pull me down, oh..
sail away with me, what will be will be
I wanna hold you now, now now

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain
here was a kind of so-so love
and I'm going to make sure it doesn't happen again
you and I had to be, the standing joke of the year
you were a runaround, a lost and found
and not for me, I feel

take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
take a look at my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
say hello goodbye
say hello and wave goodbye

We try to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt
and me in a suit, but it just wasn't me
you're used to wearin less, and now your life's a mess
so insecure you see
I've put up with all the scenes,
this is one scene that started to replace my way

take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
take a look at my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
say hello goodbye
say hello and wave goodbye

under the deep red lights, I can see the maker sliding down
well hey little girl you will always make it
so take off that unbecoming frown
as for me well, I'll find someone who's not very cheap in the sale
oh a nice little housewife, who'll keep me steady like
and not keep going off the rails

take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
take a look at my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
say hello goodbye
say hello and wave goodbye
say hello and wave goodbye
say hello and wave goodbye

oh oh oh...
say hello, wave goodbye
say hello and wave goodbye
say hello, wave goodbye
goodbye
