Falling from the western shore to find yourselves alone again,
Wondering where you have been, Your lonely voice calls
across the starlit coast, Reaching out to be seen.

She cries your name,
three times again,
She cries your name,
How long can this love remain.

Cut beneath the surface screen of what we say and what we
seem, Is a trick to be seen, She keeps crying out your name,
But her scream sound the same, How fickle fate can be.

She cries your name,
Three times the pain,
She cries your name,
How long can this love remain.

Birds that scream for territory can learn to sing
euphorically, Give him time an' he's real, And there's a
wasteland in your soul the burned out trees will leave you
cold, Living out an ideal.

She cries your name,
three times again,
She cries your name,
How long can this love remain.

She cries your name,
Twelve times again,
She cries your name,
How long can this love remain.

. . .



Lost myself in a tangent of words,
Can't decide what I've seen or heard,
Can not sleep for counting sheep,
How long does this river run deep,
How long does this river run deep.

Building a map in order to find,
What's not lost but left behind,
My instinct got bruised,
But I still see,
I was a victim I'll be no casualty.

Just like coming home,
Just like coming home,
Just like coming home,
It was just like coming home,
Coming home.

He said that you weave deadly tricks,
Come right back to the worldly hicks,
Stare it cold in dull surprise,
Spread evil to hell in every tear you cried,
Every tear you cried.

Building a map in order to find,
What's not lost but left behind,
I was a victim I'll be no casualty.

Just like coming home,
Just like coming home,
Just like coming home,
Could be just like coming home,
Coming home.

Cut off my toes to spite my feet,
Drank your poison
Didn't taste too sweet,
Saw that heaven's in my mind,
It's there for me to find,
It's there for me to find.

. . .



Have you ever seen a sign,
That upon a time,
There were angels,
We all lose track,
Was upon our backs,
Feel the weight of them,
Why they fall is hard tell,
But some things you can buy yourself,
Yeah we all hurt the ones we love,
And we don't need a reason,
We only give what we think we deserve,
An' that's something to believe in,

I think I've seen a sign,
But its a very fine line,
If you want it all,
An' don't lose track,
For on our back,
There's no weight of wings,
When they shine is hard to say,
But some things never fade away,
We only hurt the ones we love,
Why we don't need a reason,
We only give what we think we deserve,
An' that's something to believe in,

So I've been calling angels down to Earth,
An' I don't need a reason,
Calling angels down to Earth,
Because I believe we need them,
We only hurt the ones we love,
Why we don't need a reason,
Gonna get all that you deserve,
And all that you believe in,
Do you believe in,
Do you need them,
If you need them,
Do you know,
Do you need them,
If you need them,
Do you know,
Do you need them,
If you need them.

. . .



If there's something you wanna do,
You'll know when you've seen it through,
Yeah we live as we dream alone,
But that's not all you've ever known.

Stop look listen I can find you,
I've been standing right beside you,
You don't have to remind me,
I know an' I won't let go.

An' if you've taken me for someone who cares,
Then there's a dream I know we both have shared,
If I talked to you after all's been done,
I know we'll find home where ever we've gone,
You're not the only one.

But there's something I wanna show,
Though not sure that I should do,
So while we live all our dreams for free,
But that's not all they ever could be.

Stop look listen I can find you,
I've been standing right beside you,
You don't have to remind me,
I know an' I won't let go.

An' as I've taken you for someone who cares,
Then there's a dream I know we both have shared,
If you talk to me after what's been said,
Then I know there's a home where ever we live,
You're not the only one,
You're not the only one.

An' if you've taken me for someone who cares,
Then there's a dream I hope we both can share,
If I talk to you after what's been said,
Well you'll admit there's home where ever we live,
You're not the only one,
You're not the only one.

We live as we dream alone,
But that's not all we've shown,
We live as we dream alone,
An' that's not all we've known,
We live as we dream alone,
That's not all you've shown.

Sugar boy its all over now,
Sugar boy its all over now,
Ain't your loving,
But the things that you do,
Listen boy I'm getting tired of you,

Sugar boy what you trying to do,
Well I told you I loved you,
Now what more can I do,
Told you I loved you,
You beat my heart black and blue,
I told you I loved you,
Now what more can I do,
Do you want me to lay down
And die for you.

Sugar boy its all over now,
Sugar boy its all over now,
Went to the doctor,
Told me something was wrong,
Listen girl you shouldn't feel so alone.

Sugar boy what you trying to do,
Well I told you I loved you,
Now what more can I do,
Told you I loved you,
You beat my heart black and blue,
I told you I loved you,
Now what more can I do,
Do you want me to lay down
And die for you.

Lay down and die,
Lay down and die,
Well I'm not gonna lay down and die,
No I'm not gonna lay down and die,
Oh no I won't lay down and die,
Never gonna lay down and die,
Oh no I'm never gonna lay down and die for you,
Oh no I'm never gonna lay down and die for you,
I'm never gonna lay down and die.

. . .



I dreamed of you last night,
You had a different face,
Or maybe just a haircut,
You were older and wiser,
Yet more like a child,
I was amazed to still find you ,
There at the back of my mind,
This dream was short,
This dream was happy,
This dream was short,
This dream was happy.

Put your loving on a slow burner,
If you want to keep your loving warmer,
Put your loving on a slow simmer,
If it helps to keep a light from growing dimmer.

Hold on hold out,
You're still thrown against a wall,
Never looking to be picked up,
Or left alone to fall.

Can you touch me with your love,
Would I feel it if I trust enough,
Could it almost be a lust for life,
Would I feel it if I'd not known it by sight.

You could put it on a coal burner,
Deception never kept it any warmer,
The truth is cooking on a slow simmer,
A light still shining even when its dimmer,

Hold on hold out,
You're still thrown against a wall,
Never looking to be picked up,
Or left alone to fall.

Can you touch me with your love,
Would I feel it if I trust enough,
Could it almost be a lust for life,
Would I feel it if I'd not known it by sight.

Troubled waters locked so far down below,
Will have to find another place to go,
If the truth in my heart gets put aside,
Just let me go and wait for the next ride.

Hold on hold out,
I've been thrown against that wall,
Never wanted to be picked up,
And left alone to fall,

Then it touched me just like love,
Still feel it when I trust enough,
Could almost be a lust for life,
Still feel it though I'd not known it by sight,
Can feel it 'cos I know it's all right.

. . .



Whenever I need a friend,
It's you I come round to see again,
You know that I'll always be near,
You're flesh and blood and you're my memory,
Live on in my memory.

I send you nothing but love,
Just wait and see,
I send you nothing but love,
Just wait for me,
Wait and see,
Wait and see.

Great words, you know all the right words to say,
You don't always lean in my way,
You don't always mean what you say.

Whenever I need a friend,
It's you I come round to see again,
An' everything that you do,
Is everything I will ask of you,
You could ask me too.

I send you nothing but love,
Just wait an' see,
I send you nothing but love,
Just wait for me,
Wait and see,
Wait and see.

Great words, you know all the right words to say,
You don't have to lean in my way,
We don't have to mean what we say.

. . .



I heard you saying rightly so,
Turn our backs on what we most need to know,
Give in too fast then give in to no,
Once they've got you where they want you,
They don't wanna know.

I could leave or I could stay,
It doesn't make a bit of difference any more anyway,
With each and every circumstance,
I lose knowledge and gain innocence,
You won't find me grieving,
There's no regret in leaving,
When I had to come here,
Like I know I had to come here,
I can see I had to come here,
For my view to be clear,
For my view to be clear.

It's easy to forget how far we've come,
How near I feel to where we first begun,
Pushed it too far,
I won't pull it too slow,
Cos' where this story ends depends on how far we go.

I could leave or I could stay,
It doesn't make a bit of difference any more anyway,
With each and every circumstance,
I lose knowledge and gain innocence,
You won't find me grieving,
There's no regret in leaving,
When I had to come here,
Like I know I had to come here,
Oh I know I had to come here,
For my view to be clear,
You know I see I had to be here,
Oh I know I had to be here,
I can see I had to be here,
For my view is now clear.

So roll on blue skies,
Roll on grey,
Just roll away,
So roll on blue skies,
Roll on grey,
Just roll away,
Come on roll on blue skies,
Come on grey,
Then roll away,
Just roll away,
Just roll away.
Whenever

Whenever I need a friend,
It's you I come round to see again,
You know that I'll always be near,
You're flesh and blood and my memory,
Live on in my memory.

I send you nothing but love,
Just wait an' see,
I send you nothing but love,
Just wait for me,
Wait and see,
Wait and see.

Great words, you know all the right words to say,
You don't always lean in my way,
You don't always mean what you say.

Whenever I need a friend,
It's you I come round to see again,
An' everything that you do,
Is everything I will ask of you,
You could ask me too.

I send you nothing but love,
Just wait an' see,
I send you nothing but love,
Just wait for me,
Wait and see,
Wait and see.

Great words, you know all the right words to say,
You don't have to lean in my way,
We don't have to mean what we say.

I wanna sit and talk and laugh with you as the ends,
I wanna see your smiling face before the new begins,
You never know what it means to see the sunlight in your
hair and dancing everywhere.

I wanna shout about it,
But I keep quiet about it,
I wanna laugh about it,
But I don't joke about,
Wanna live without it,
But I can't do without it.

I'm someone's daughter,
An' your somebody's son,
Can I ease your pain 'til the morning comes,
I'm no one's daughter
I belong to the sun,
Gonna ease your pain 'til the morning comes.

Keep looking for the reason high and low to let it go,
Keep losing my mind looking for the peace that I'll never
find, I wanna know what it feels like to be the sunlight in
your hair and dancing everywhere.

I wanna shout about it,
But I keep quiet about it,
I wanna laugh about it,
But I don't joke about,
Wanna live without it,
But I can't do without it.

I'm someone's daughter,
An' your somebody's son,
Can I ease your pain 'til the morning comes,
I'm no one's daughter
I belong to the sun,
Gonna ease your pain 'til the morning comes

. . .



Baby do you know what you did today,
Baby do you know what you took away,
You took the blue out of the sky,
My whole life changed when you said goodbye,
An' I keep crying, crying.

Ooooh baby,
Ooooh baby,
I wish I never saw the sunshine,
I wish I never saw the sunshine,
An' if I never saw the sunshine bay,
Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain.

Every day is just like the day before,
All alone a million miles from shore,
All of my dreams I dreamed with you,
Now they will die and never come true,
An' I keep crying, crying.

Ooooh baby,
Ooooh baby,
I wish I never saw the sunshine,
I wish I never saw the sunshine,
An' if I never saw the sunshine bay,
Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain.

Ooooh this pain,
And I know there would not be,
This cloud that's over me,
Everywhere I go.

Ooooh baby,
Ooooh baby,
I wish I never saw the sunshine,
I wish I never saw the sunshine,
An' if I never saw the sunshine bay,
Then maybe I wouldn't mind the rain.

Ooooh this pain,
I wouldn't mind the rain,
There wouldn't be this pain,
I wouldn't mind the rain,
I wouldn't mind the rain

. . .



Stars light they sky and a galaxy of emptiness tonight
Though I'm happiest when there's no reason for me to be

When no one's expectations to weigh heavy on my heart
And so much hope it sometimes tears me all apart
Won't you please knock me off my feet, for a while?
Could you please knock me off my feet, for a while?

Stars light they sky in a gutter full of of broken dreams
tonight
Though I'm not content that's the way it seems to be
Still I've been fightin' all week though I don't know what for

Hopin' someone else, someone near knows the score
Could you please knock me off my feet, for a while?
Could you please knock me off my feet, for a while?

And there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
A whole galaxy of emptiness tonight
There's a galaxy of emptiness...
A whole galaxy of emptiness...

Monkey see, monkey do
I spent my whole life surrounded by people like you
With all that expectation to weigh heavy on your heart
But no ideas to later tear it all apart
Won't you please knock me off my feet, for a while?
Could you please knock me off my feet, for a while?

Cause there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight
A galaxy of emptiness...

Burn burn burn your soul to find
Burn burn burn your soul away
Burn a soul to find
