Never Grow Old

I have a dream, strange it may seem
It was my perfect day

Open my eyes. I realize, it is my perfect day

I hope you'll never grow old

Do Do Do. Do Do Do. Do Do Do

Birds in the sky, they look so high
This is my perfect day

I feel the breeze, I feel at ease.
It is my perfect day

I hope you'll never grow old

Forever young, I hope you'll stay, forever young

Do Do Do. Do Do Do. Do Do Do

 

 

Analyse

Close your eyes, close your eyes
Breathe the air, out there
We are free, we can be wide open

For you opened my eyes to the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay wide open

Don't analyse, don't analyse
Don't go that way, don't live that way
That would paralyse your evolution

La la la This greatest moment
La la la The greatest day
La la la The greatest love of them all

Close your eyes, close your eyes
Breathe the air, out there
Fantasize, fantasize we are open

For you opened my eyes to the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay together

La la la This greatest moment
La la la The greatest day
La la la The greatest love of them all

 

 

Time Is Ticking Out

We better think about the things we say
We better think about the games we play
The world went round, yeah, around and around

We better think about the consequences
We better think about the global censes
If time went down, yeah, if time went down

What about Chernobyl
What about radiation

We don't know, we don't know
What about deprivation, gluttony, the human nation
We don't know, we don't know

For me love is all

Time is ticking out...

Looks like we've screwed up the ozone layer
I wonder if the politicians care
The dime went down, yeah, if time went down

What about our children then
Is there nothing left for them
We don't know, we don't know

For me love is all

I need the oxygen. I need the oxygen

For me love is all

To do do do

Time is ticking out, yeah, time is ticking out

 

 

Dying Inside

Terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying, inside, to see her dying

Won't you come out and play the games we played
Won't you speak out, and say the things you'd say

The lady loved her gold, the lady lost her soul

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying, inside, to see her dying

Do you remember, the things we used to do
Do you remember, the way it was for you

The lady loved her gold, the lady lost her soul

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying

It was a terrible thing, it was a terrible thing
To see her dying inside, to see her die

La ah, la ah, la ah

 

 

This Is The Day

I never had a friend like you, this is the day
Your skin is white, your eyes are blue, this is the day

But the wind might change, I will still remain
I will always be there for you

Those thoughts, they circle in my mind, this is the day
The demoms I can't leave behind, this is the day

Don't be insecure, I'll be at your door
I will always be there for you

Faith will save you, faith will save you
Faith will save you, stay safe

Par forth thy grace into my mind, this is the day
Par forth thy grace, thou art devine, this is the day

Don't be insecure, I'll be at your door
I'll always be there for you

Faith will save you, faith will save you
Faith will save you, stay safe

But the wind might change, I will still remain
I will still be here

But the wind might change, I will still remain
I Will always be there for you

Faith will save you, faith will save you
Faith will save you, stay safe

 

 

The Concept

Come here my lover, something's on your mind?
Listen to no other, they could be unkind

Hold on to the concept of love, always darling
Hold on to the concept of love, always

Take life between us, live it like we choose
They'll never see us, I will hear you call

Hold on to the concept of love, always, darling
Hold on to the concept of love, always

Night all night, all night
Night all night, all night
Night all night, all night
Night all night, all night

 

 

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

I, I went to hell, I might as well learn by my mistakes
I, at twenty-four, was insecure, do whatever it takes

Come on and wake up, (wake up, wake up, wake up
shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
It's time, smell the coffee, the coffee)

She's only got one reason to live, this is your life
She's only got one message to give, give it tonight

She's so gorgeous, I'll do anything
She's so gorgeous, I'll lose everything.

Any day!

Come on then wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Shut up, shut up, shut up, shut up
It's time, smell the coffee, the coffee

She's only got one reason to live, this your life
She's only got one message to give, give it tonight

She's so gorgeous, I'll do anything
She's so gorgeous, I'll lose everything

Any day!

 

 

Pretty Eyes

Pretty eyes, pretty eyes
Not a cloud in my day
Not a cloud in my way

Angel eyes, no disguise
No pretension is here
No pretension, no fear

Don't leave me calling
Don't leave me falling

Stay a while, stay a while
I will tell you my mind
I will tell you my mind

I would give everything, just to take all your pain
Just to take all your pain

Don't leave me calling
Don't leave me falling

 

 

I Really Hope

I've been down this road before
Now I'm coming back for more
This is like a deja vu, I was born to be with you

Into the night we went to sleep
You and I were ment for keeps
Into the night, we went to play, You and I

[I really hope you'll always be, so in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay, so attached this way]

So beware of the pitfall
We don't have to change at all
And our light will not burn out
It's what freedom's all about

Into the night we went to sleep
You and I were ment for keeps
Into the night, we went to play
You and I

I really hope you'll always be, so in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay, so attached this way

I really hope you'll always be, so in love with me
I really hope we'll always stay, so attached this way

I really hope that we'll always be here
I really hope that you'll always be near
Take me and break me, I'll always be here

I really hope that you'll always be near

 

 

Every Morning

My god the years passed me by
Where was I hiding

I've been around the world for some time
It's oblivious now

The morning sun is in my eyes
It doesn't hide the lines

It does not bare a great disguise
Happy birthday baby, happy birthday

Every morning, every morning in time
We're doing fine

I don't remember being young
Was it so much fun
I don't remember feeling this free
It was not for me

I paid a price, sacrificed, it was worth it then
My time has come I now feel young, begin again.
Happy birthday

Every morning, every morning in time
We're doing fine

 

 

Do You Know

Be here a while, might as well smile
Might as well smile

I will be strong, will carry on
And I'll always hold on to my smile

What would you say, would you say that I'm sad
For feeling this way, ow!

What would you do if you were in my shoes
In mine

Do you know what I think
Do you know what I think about it, about it

I guess you don't know anything
You don't know anything, about it, about it

Dust in my eyes, I realise that I'm thinking of you
I'll take my car, I will go far and I'll be lonely for you

What would you say, would you say that I'm sad
For feeling this way, ow!

What would you do if you were in my shoes
In mine

Do you know what I think
Do you know what I think about it, about it

I guess you don't know anything.
You don't know anything, about it, about it...


Carry On

I didn't understand the things you're going through
I never understood, I really never knew

Carry on, carry on, carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on, carry on, carry on
We'll have a glass of wine or a cigarette

Take destiny by the hand and lead it far away
Take it to another land, we will all decay

Carry on, carry on, carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on, carry on, carry on
We'll have a glass of wine or a cigarette

 

 

Chocolate Brown

But I tried and sighed
He didn't listen to me, I felt that way

Still I tried and sighed
He wouldn't understand me, I felt that way

But you're so young and you don't get me now
I feel so guilty and you are Chocolate Brown

Chocolate Brown, I can't play
Not too long, I will make it up to you
Chocolate brown

Still I learn and I learn
There's so much to think about you
So much to lose

But it's just so fine and you don't see it know
Don't make me guilty
Please don't Chocolate Brown

Chocolate Brown, I can't play
Not too long, I will make it up to you
Chocolate brown

 

 

In The Ghetto

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto x2

And his mother cries
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
It's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto x2

So people, don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way?

Well the world turns
And a poor little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto x2

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto x2

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car
Tries to run, but he doesn't get far
And his mother cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto x2

As her young man dies (in the ghetto)
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
another little baby child is born

In the ghetto x4

 

 

Cape Town

I am anticipating my trip to Africa
How I've always been waiting, far too long
I'm not going to soundcheck there's too much to do
I'm not going to soundcheck I might fall for you
Hum num num num Africa
Hum num num num Fall for you

5 o'clock in the morning, my feet will touch the ground
5 o'clock in the morning, i know no sound
We could take a safari, all around
Go see Tabletop Mountain, In Cape Town
Hum num num num Africa
Hum num num num Fall for you
