What is there to do? Only rain
Falling down from the sky
Only me and you, fair and plain
Nothing lost and nothing gained

Only the love, nothing more, nothing less comes between us
Temperature's rising, my passion is burning inside

My world in light saving all as one
A love that no one can deny
My one true light, same for everyone
A love we dare you to defy
Only rain

I won't settle for less, but no regrets
See myself in your own reflection (See myself in your reflection)
Something in your eyes that tells me why
I'm a fool for your warm affection (I'm a fool for your affection)

Only the love, nothing more, nothing less comes between us
Temperature's rising, my passion is burning inside

My world in light saving all as one
A love that no one can deny
My one true light, same for everyone
A love we dare you to defy
Only rain

You are my, my one true, my world in light

. . .



I cross the sea, the sea of love
And when it's dark I rise above
Move slowly through the quiet air
I hear your voice, it takes me there

Call my name aloud and I'll be there for you
There is no end to all the things that I would do

Stop your crying and dry up your endless tears
Don't you know, you've got the key, love sets you free
Worlds on fire full of pain and endless fear
Don't you know, open your eyes, love sets you free

I hold you tight, my mind is clear
True love in sight, hurt disappears
We are space, a lonely race
A speck of dust, upon the face

You are magnificent, and I am here for you
There is no end to all the things that I would do

Stop your crying and dry up your endless tears
Don't you know, you've got the key, love sets you free (Love sets your world on
fire)
Worlds on fire full of pain and endless fear
Don't you know, open your eyes, love sets you free (You've got the key)

Stop your crying and dry up your endless tears
Don't you know, you've got the key, love sets you free (Love sets your world on
fire)
Worlds on fire full of pain and endless fear

. . .



Don't walk away
I need you more than words can say
I feel for you, this everlasting flame
My everlasting flame

I will wash away your tears
Through the pain and through the sorrow
Better days are still to come
If you would only turn around and

Reach out and touch me
Reach out and hold me
Reach out and touch me

You feel the rain
I feel the tear drops run down my face
You hide your fear in everlasting shame
My everlasting flame

We have wasted so much time
So you're saying now it's over
Better days are still to come
Don't turn your back on me now darling

Reach out and touch me (Reach out and touch me)
Reach out and hold me (Reach out and hold me)
Reach out and touch me (Reach out and touch me)

I will wash away your tears
Through the pain and through the sorrow
Better days are still to come
If you would only turn around and

Reach out and touch me (Reach out and touch me)
Reach out and hold me (Reach out and hold me)
Reach out and touch me (Reach out and touch me)

Don't walk away from me now darling
I need you now much more than ever
Don't you walk away from me my darling

Reach out and touch me (Reach out and touch me)
Reach out and hold me (Reach out and hold me)

. . .



The deal is on the rise again
The ship comes in to shore
You've been away to somewhere
But life goes on no less

Through the foreign ocean
Underneath the sea

And walls come tumbling down
We'll be forever calm
And you'll be here in my arms
I'll keep you away from harm

I thought about you twice just then
You get me every time
Keeps coming out of nowhere
It cannot be defined

Your colours are magnificent
From magenta to bright blue

And walls come tumbling down
We'll be forever calm
And you'll be here in my arms
I'll keep you away from harm

Through the foreign ocean
Underneath the sea

And walls come tumbling down
We'll be forever calm
And you'll be here in my arms

. . .



My eyes are closed
And I've nothing more to say
But I was so willing to give it all away
And what a show
I've loved you all I could
When will I see you, is nothing understood?

You thought I was stupid, but now I stop at nothing (I stop at nothing)
I thought you were better but love's gonna take a man
Yeah, love's gonna take a man

Don't say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

Heaven only knows
At your every turn a scandal
But how does it suit you
When it's all too much to cope with?

You thought I was nothing before you stepped into my life
I thought you were clever, but love's gonna take a man
And you haven't got it in you

Don't say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

Don't say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside
But would not hurt your foolish pride

Don't say your love is killing me
You know how much it means to me
I too have feelings deep inside

. . .



The ebb and flow of the tide
Will carry me forth into your arms
And though I'll miss you tonight
The thought of your love keeps me warm

As the moon comes out over the water

Precious and too sweet
I shall pray love your soul to keep
The river sleeping sound
I shall be dreaming deep of you

Soul do keep thee, rife and weepy, calling out to you

The dip and roar of the crowd
Will dizzy me forth into your arms
And if we pass it all around
We'll be of the same point of view

As the world spins round, here ever after

Precious and too sweet
I shall pray love your soul to keep
The river sleeping sound
I shall be dreaming deep of you
On a bed of silver sand
I'll take you lightly by the hand
And we'll dance on by the moon
I shall be dreaming deep of you

Shattered, dreamy, calm and sweetly, fool enough for two

When the stars play hide and seek
I shall be dreaming deep of you (I shall be dreaming)
Precious and too sweet
I shall pray love your soul to keep (I shall be praying)
On a bed of silver sand
I'll take you lightly by the hand (I shall be dreaming)
And we'll dance on by the moon

. . .



I'm coming in,got the wood stove on
At the end of a treasured day
Take off my hat and shoes
And I lay me down
Lives been lost and fortunes won
A test of the will to survive
See where the shadow falls
And you stake your claim

I dream of trees and roads
I roam across the hills
The sky is big, of deepest blue
The clouds like smokey trains

News coming in, goes nationwide
Not a grain of truth to be heard
Lie to an ancient tribe
In their mother tongue
Wreaking havoc and wrecking lives
Like a ball and chain to the skull
Rise see the eagle fly
Spirit can't be broken

I dream of trees and roads
I roam across the hills
The sky is big, of deepest blue
The clouds like smokey trains

I dream of trees and roads
I roam across the hills
The sky is big, of deepest blue

. . .



Love you boy, till I fall
The child in me again, he plays the fool
Cry for joy, amen
For after all, it's only love
And the way you stir your coffee
Like an angel in the morning

Still you dare to change your mind
You'll be sorry when it's over
When you've had your taste of freedom
Don't come crying on my shoulder

Save your tears, don't mean much
Is the guilty party me? I don't think so
And it, it's no bed of roses lying here
Tossing and turning

Still you dare to change your mind
You'll be sorry when it's over
When you've had your taste of freedom
Don't come crying on my shoulder

And these, these years of love and giving surely
Must be something to you

Still you dare to change your mind
You'll be sorry when it's over
When you've had your taste of freedom
Don't come crying on my shoulder

Still you dare to change your mind
You'll be sorry when it's over
When you've had your taste of freedom

. . .



Downtown I'm homeward bound
The city lights are looking bright tonight
No love lost between us
When I see you things are looking up

And though it's cold, inside I'm warm
Devoid of worries, no love is forlorn

How can I say what must remain unspoken
Don't want to spoil all that we said before
So many cry baby hearts to be broken
Don't want to join in with their crazy wars

You tease, I try to please
Though I know I'm not looking my best tonight
Hard pressed, you've had the rest
Of all the choices, time to make your mind up

And though you smile you're sad inside
But do not worry, 'cause I'll make it right

How can I say what must remain unspoken
Don't want to spoil all that we said before
So many cry baby hearts to be broken
Don't want to join in with their crazy wars

How can I say what must remain unspoken
Don't want to spoil all that we said before
So many cry baby hearts to be broken

. . .



Why should it matter how I feel?
This old romantic down at heel
Then again, if i'd known the outcome, sure you'd win

Illusion shattered, made them real
A night of magic, fate is sealed
Ran amok, and you knocked my tiny world for six

It wouldn't have made the slightest, blindest bit of difference

All together now, lets hear you pray
Make it better now and savour the day
I'm all over save me darling

I feel it deep down deep inside
Cannot believe we're still alive
That is good, 'cause I did not mean you harm my love

We took a shot at masquerade
Came crashing down on love's parade
We were young, were so full of teen emotion then

It wouldn't have made the slightest, blindest bit of difference

All together now, lets hear you pray
Make it better now and savour the day
I'm all over save me darling

All together now, lets hear you pray
Make it better now and savour the day
I'm all over save me darling

It wouldn't have made the slightest, blindest bit of difference

All together

All together now, lets hear you pray
Make it better now and savour the day

. . .



It's not just a love affair, it's all or nothing
Do I bet it all on love? Or change and freak out?
When the chances come my way, will they up and disappear?
Will it ever go my way? Or am I out of here?

There'll be tears before your bedtime, you mark my words
You wanted more than I could give you
You wanted more than you could have

It's not just a love affair, it's now or never
Could I give it all to you? Is that what we're about?
If I hold you, will you stay? Or will you up and disappear?
Be forever and a day, like your letter said

There'll be tears before your bedtime, you mark my words
You wanted more than I could give you
You wanted more than you could have

When the chances come my way, will they up and disappear?
Will it ever go my way? Or am I out of here?

There'll be tears before your bedtime, you mark my words
You wanted more than I could give you

. . .


(written by Stein/Harry)

Toe to toe dancing very close
Body breathing almost comatose
Wall to wall people hypnotized
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in rapture

Back to back sacraliliac
Spineless movement and a wild attack
Face to face sightless solitude
And it's finger popping
Twentyfour hour shopping in rapture

Fab Five Freddy told me
Everybody's fly
DJ spinning I said, "My, my"
Flash is fast
Flash is cool
Francois c'est pas flashe non due
And you don't stop sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car
And drive real far
And you drive all night
And then you see a light
And it comes right down
And it lands on the ground
And out comes
The man from Mars
And you try to run
But he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead
And he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night eating cars

You eat Cadillacs
Lincolns too
Mercury's and Subaru
And you don't stop
You keep on eating cars
Then when there's no more cars
you go out at night
And eat up bars
where the people meet
Face to face
Dance cheek to cheek
One to one
Man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow
'cause the man from Mars
Is through with cars
He's eating bars
Yeah wall to wall
Door to door
Hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture

Be pure
Take a tour
Through the sewer
Don't strain your brain
Paint the train
You'll be singing in the rain
Said don't stop
To the punk rock
Well now you see
What you wanna be
Just have your party on TV
'Cause the man from Mars
Won't eat up bars
Where the TV's on
And now he's gone back up to space
Where he won't have
A hassle with the human race
And you hip hop
And you don't stop
Just blast off sure shot
Because the man from Mars
Stopped eating cars
And eating bars
And now he only eats guitars
Get up!

(get up!)
Rapture
(human race, human race, human race)
Rapture

Rapture...

(written by Bacharach/David)

Magic moments, when two hearts are caring
Magic moments, memories we've been sharing

I'll never forget the night that we kissed that night at the hayride,
The way that we hugged and tried to keep warm while taking the sleighride,

Magic moments, when two hearts are caring
Magic moments, memories we've been sharing
Time can't erase the memory of
These magic moments filled with love

The telephone call that tied up the line for hours and hours,
The saturday dance I got up the nerve to send you some flowers

Magic moments, when two hearts are caring
Magic moments, memories we've been sharing
Time can't erase the memory of
These magic moments filled with love

The way that we cheered whenever our team was scoring the touchdown
The way that the floor fell out on my car when I put the clutch down
The penny arcade, the games that we played, the fun and the prizes
The halloween hop, when everyone came in funny disguises
