CAN YOU FEEL

Underneath the brave and brand-new sky
A soldierís singiní
So Iím writing you this letter wonít be long
Till I meet you at the station

For you are the only one Iím thinking of
You are the one that has my love
While youíre waiting patiently donít grieve for me
Iíll be back someday
Never want to be a hero too soon

Do Do DoÖ

Though it seems to be so many years
Since I went away
Iím helpless now Iíve 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 wanna get a bullet too soon

Can you feel
The raindrops falling down?

Do Do DoÖ

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 down




EVERYWHERE YOU GO

I could be a lover like that
Just give me all the things 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 itís so
Iíll be the one to tear you away from here

Everywhere you go Iíll come running
Everywhere you go I will bring you round
Everywhere you go I will come to you
But I wonít bring you down

Fly a little, take a long drive
We can be whatever we want now
Wonít be the same here without you

So if youíve 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
Iíll be reaching out to hold you
There is nothing else that I wonít do for you
I could take all these fears away from you

Chorus

All the tears you cry as the miles roll by
Iíll be reaching out to hold you
There is nothing I wonít do for you

Everywhere you go
I will come to you
But I wonít bring you down




ROCKETSHIP

Sitting in a rocketship
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
Iím telling you, Iím still in love with you

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

Chorus

And as the silence turn to sound
You are with me now
And as the day begins to sing
Iím telling you, Iím still in love with you

Chorus




RACHAEL

Rachael, Iím sorry that we never had the time
Making love could last forever
I will never let you go from the corners of my mind
Never, say never
Rachael, Iím 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
Iíd like to nestle in your arms
Tangled in the deepest jungle
Never been so kind
All will be for sake

Rachael, a lesson hare to learn is what Iíve found
This difference has grown between us
I was never one to show the way my heart lies
Save me from misery
Rachael, itís taken far too long to realize
Youíre everything that I could care for
This paradise inside will never leave my heart and mind
Together and forever

With a loverís 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
A new beginning every day
Could have been so good together, Rachael
Could have been so good together now
But sheís still sending me away




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 everythingís gone

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

Itís the last time that weíll have together
Itís the only thing left in our lives
But as long as we still have each other
Letís spend the night

Find myself a better life you used to say
Now your dreaming has finally grown
Even though you are near and the answers so clear
I canít do it, I canít let you go

And if it seems Iím falling behind
Itís hurting me more than youíll know

Chorus

I remember the line that you gave me
ĎBout the days and the rest of our lives
Now that youíve found your place to be
Itíll kill me if youíre not around

Chorus




COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS

Long may the sun shine on you
Long may the rain fall on me
Iím having trouble in my head
It comes from the things you said
Now Iím counting down the days

I never told you half the truth
Iíd always tiptoed through your room
I canít be sorry for what Iíve done
I couldnít spoil the fun
Now Iím counting down the days

And the ocean holds no clues
And that plane overhead could be taking you away
I havenít always been this cold
Before the news grows old
Iíll be counting down the days


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
It's jagged path cut 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 all of my life
I'll give you endless symphonies
All throught the night
I will make all your lies come true

Down 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

All of my life
I'll give you endless symphonies
All through the night
I will be waiting
All though the night
I'll give you everything
All your lies


GET SET

Makin' 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 you need to terrify you
Don't you know, baby

Chorus

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

Chorus

If you want me toÖ



72 HOUR DAZE

Itís a lovely day today
So why do I feel so strange
Wasted away I am dry
Three feet to either way
Canít help but think what may
Will be left around me
When I die

And the sunlight in my eyes ainít helping me see
ĎCause everywhere I look itís all I see

Dreaming of another place
To wash away the pain
So I can fly away
Canít 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
Didnít have to let me go
Only had to let me know
Any way for me to get away from you
Now Iíll have to let you go
Didnít want to let you go

Chorus

Never knew that I would look upon your face
Maybe in another place
I will fly away
Any way for me to find a way to you
There is nothing I wonít do
I will fly, I will flyÖ

Itís a lovely day today
So why do I feel so strange
Everything around me has changed



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
Other days the pieces fell together again
But this time itís different
ĎCause today my heart is beyond repair
So it bleeds
ĎCause darling, you slipped away
Much too easy for me

Chorus

When the loneliness inside me
Turn to pain
Iíll 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

I could dieÖ



ICE CREAM

I, I like ice cream
A kind of smooth kick taste takes away my mind
You, you ainít a better thing
But if you got a 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
Weíll find a better day Ė somewhere thatís far away
Find me at Sunset Park
Lay back and make believe Ė we can be anything
Weíre on our own

I, I ainít a jelly bean
A cellophane sun kiss takes away the time
But I, Iím going sugar-free
And when you get to Sunset weíll go for a ride

Policemen 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



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

ĎCause thereís nothing in this world
Thatíll stop me fighting for you
Nothing in this world
Thatíll keep me away
There is nothing in this world
Thatíll stop me fighting for your love

I might have told you how much you have meant to me
(Donít be alarmed if I tell you how I feel)
You found adventures in places I couldnít 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

Chorus



BACK AGAIN

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

But I donít suppose that youíll ever see me
Angered by your love so squeeze me
I propose to fight for what is mine

ĎCause Iíll take you back again

Heís a minerís 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 minerís crooked leg

ĎCause Iíll 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 thereís no telling meÖ
That I wonít ever have her back again
No, I wonít have her back again
