Real Life (Raven Maize version)
. . .



We go walking, hand in hand
All across the land it's East At Easter
People walking hand in hand
When ships are moving south it will be East at Easter
We will rock you, rock you little child
We will rock you, rock you little child
All across the land it's East At Easter
All across the land it's East At Easter

Things will lighten up the sky, East At Easter
Things will lighten up the sky, East At Easter
We'll go walking hand in hand
'Cause all across the land it will be East At Easter
Ah, we will rock you, rock you little child
We will rock you, rock you little child
All across the land it's East At Easter
When ships go moving south it will be East At Easter

They're gonna lighten up the sky
They're gonna lighten up the sky
They're gonna lighten up the sky
East At Easter

Ah, we'll go walking hand in hand
We'll go walking hand in hand, yes
We will rock you, rock you little child
We will rock you, rock you
Rock you little child
They're gonna lighten up the sky
When they lighten up the sky it will be East At Easter

Paula came from Washington with long golden hair
Twenty eight dollars in a fake silk purse and a leather skirt to wear
Shane came from Dublin town from the old world so green
Counterfeit ticket in to JFK in the land of his dreams

Street life's the only life they take a walk in the park
Even tough they only met that day they were lovers by dark
Laid out on the morning skies he puts a ring on her hand
He said listen babe we gotta take what's ours do it or die

Quit dreaming this is real life baby
Real life's the only life what's it all about
Quit dreaming this is real life baby

Way out on the dock that night the colour is red
23rd victim of a gangland war takes his last breath
Outside the sister cried she said the whole world's so mean
Heavyweight killer in the ring, turns killing machine

Quit dreaming this is real life baby
Real life's the only life what's it all about
Quit dreaming this is real life baby

All my love, you're my all
They way you move, you're in control
The way you talk, the way you dress
Your hands, your touch, your sweet caress.
All my love, you're the best,
Every little thing that I possess,
It's all emotion when you take control,
I can feel wild horses running in my soul.
Oh my love, all I see
The stars, the sun, the energy,
If this going to kill us then let it go,
Quit dreaming this is real life baby

Up high above a desert sky where the space shuttles scream,
Sixteen men from a dying earth take their last dream.

Quit dreaming this is real life baby
Quit dreaming this is cheap life baby
Real life's the only life what's it all about
Quit dreaming this is cheap life baby
Your eyes, your lips, the shape of your mouth,
It's a sweet life baby
All my love, you're my all
The way you move, the way you go
I'm all emotion when you take control
I can feel wild horses running in my soul.
All my love, you're all I see
The stars, the sun, the energy,
The way you move, you're in control

. . .


Shots ring out in Paris, the bells ring out in Rome
Your photo's in the paper, buy you're getting old
Footsteps in the carpark he's the governor of the night
The omens say crime don't pay but each dog has its price

When two worlds collide
The tears well inside
When two worlds collide

A boy is found in Naples, his body's in a ditch
His young life counts for nothing when somebody's getting rich
There's flowers on the table, he sips water she drinks wine
And I don't think that mercy is the language of our time

When two worlds collide
The teardrops inside
When two worlds collide
You break me up inside

Backstreet of Chicago a black man plays the gold
There's a man on every corner says he'd like to buy your soul
Bhuddists in the temple, bullets in the night
Steeping out of their world, into your world, into mine
In the jet black night

The tears well inside
When two worlds collide
You break me up inside
Two worlds collide

. . .



I had a walk the other day
To meet someone I think you know
The air was cold
Skies were so grey
Somebody lay on the ground below

All For You
All For You
All For You

Came face to face
Felt so uneasy
Oh so confused as what's going on
Just could not move
Feel so affaid
Whisper the words
The words were said

All For You
All For You
All For You

Into the street
People can meet
Don't turn your back to the view
The silver blade can cut up your throat
I tell you now
'Cause I know it's true

All For You
All For You
All For You

I had to walk the other day
To meet someone

. . .



Like to tell ya about my baby
You know she comes around
She about five feet four
A-from her head to the ground

You know she comes around here
At just about midnight
She make ya feel so good, Lord
She make ya feel all right

And her name is... G L O R I...
G L O R I A - Gloria
G L O R I A - Gloria
I'm gonna shout it all night - Gloria
I'm gonna shout it everyday - Gloria
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

She comes around here
Just about midnight
Ha, she make me feel so good, Lord
I wanna say she make me feel alright

Comes a-walkin' down my street
When she comes to my house
She knocks upon my door
And then she comes in my room
Yeah, an' she make me feel alright

G L O R I A - Gloria
G L O R I A - Gloria
I'm gonna shout it all night - Gloria
I'm gonna shout it everyday - Gloria
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

Looks so good - Gloria - Alright

. . .



And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
A hand-me-down dress from who knows where
To all tomorrow's parties

And where will she go and what shall she do
When midnight comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
And cry behind the door

And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
Why silks and linens of yesterday's gowns
To all tomorrow's parties

And what will she do with Thursday's rags
When Monday comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
And cry behind the door

And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
For Thursday's child is Sunday's clown
For whom none will go mourning

A blackened shroud, a hand-me-down gown
Of rags and silks, a costume
Fit for one who sits and cries

. . .



And your love comes tumbling down
And you walk right in, your heart going round
You tell me that you'll be back early
But you know I'll be a while

Chorus:
Ooh Saturday Girl
Ooh Saturday Girl
When you drop by, I want to see you cry
Ooh Saturday Girl

When you go through the tunnel of life
You're gonna open your eyes
But you could cut the atmosphere with a knife around here
'Cos you know there is no compromise

Chorus:

When the moon lights up the street like diamonds
And all is still and quiet once again
I like to pull you here and whipser in your ear
Tell you what about the loney man

Ooh Saturday Girl

Is somebody there
I said is somebody there
I can see you there
I can fell you there
I know that love is around
I know that it's gonna be right
I know that it's gonna be right
If I could meet you over there
I would come over there
I know it's gonna be alright

Chorus:

Just think about it
Aah think about it
Come on think about it
Go on think about it
Just think about it
Go on think about it

. . .



And from the other side
A sheer white knuckle ride
So young yet feel so stung by the game
I know what's left in a name
With all those national strains

The lion hits the stage
Purple hearts revolving round with purple rage
And we all want to know where the weather goes
And what's in store tomorrow

No we don't need a replacement
The more I see the more I learn
All that time in the basement
I can't wait nor hang around

Language that shocks of the new
With the promise there's nothing to hide
When vultures rise out of the blue
And the circle of fireflies tonight
And all that heavenly light
I can't understand
The coup d'etat that walks inside every man
They all wanna know 'bout the fasion show
Where the Queen will go tomorrow

Tomorrow
Where the Queen will go tomorrow
Where the Queen will go tomorrow

No we don't need a replacement
The more I see the more I learn
All that time in the basement
I can't wait nor hang around

Feel real power in the darkness
The more I see the more I learn
Feel it more than I confess
I can't wait nor hang around

I'll be outside
I'll be outside
Song for the tribes
Song for the tribes
The more I see the more I learn
No we don't need a replacement
The more I see the more I learn
Song for the tribes

. . .



Shadows in your room
Like a ghost you never see
Look in to the one you love if you're afraid of me

Ghettos in his eyes
He plays a torch song melody
Listen to the one you love if you're afraid of me

Ghost rider
E S P
Paperback rider
You can't fool me

When all is said and done
Babylon was meant to be
Shitting on the one you love if you're afraid of me

He's got the wild dog in his eyes
He's got a speedball in his brain
Running through the roads of love like a marathon man

Ghost rider
E S P
The devil inside her
Don't want it to be

Yeah the ghost rider
E S P
A paperback rider

Deep down in his soul
Every little boy knows
The he can't stop running so go

Look out
There's been a shoot out for love
I've got the shivers of love

Ghost rider
E S P
The devil inside her
I don't want it to be
Ghost rider
E S P
She's got the devil inside her
Oh no you can't

You can't fool me
Oh no you can't
You can't fool me
Oh no you can't
Yeah the ghost rider
E S P
Oh paperback rider
Oh no you can't fool


. . .



Ooh great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
You shout that it's not good enough

Ah we wait till daylight hours
Waiting for a sign from you
Golden temples concrete towers
Building mansions on the hillside next to you
In the city souls awaken bodies shaking
Oh pull me up let me see the view
And to the hungry in the gutter
We've deprived them bread and butter
Always not enough
No not enough

Great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
You shout that it's still not enough.

Ah well it's not the sound of ghosts I hear
It's the devil with his chainsaw
And I'll be running through the ghettos
Through the townships of Soweto
Always not enough
No not enough

Brothers missing, babies kissing
And the thing that got to you
Burning never turning next to you

Ooh great wall of love
Build me a great wall of love
When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
You shout that it's still not enough

So listen to me darling
They've got worries they've got troubles on their mind
And when you hear them reaching out
They're reaching out for something they can't find

Oh I believe one great day the rain will come
And wash this mess away
Oh I believe one great day the rain will come

They've got silver and diamonds
They've got paradise around them
They've got blue skies so clear
They've got their prisoner in a wagon
While the children chase the dragon
And the free bird files so clear
It files away
Fly fly fly away
Fly away
Oh you fly away

And may your sweet lips sing to me
Let the bells ring wherever freedom be
One babe is born and another one dies
There's people making love tonight
People making love tonight
Ah people making love tonight
People making love
People making love tonight
People making love
I can hear them reaching out
I can hear them reaching out
I can hear them reaching out

. . .



You know my heart beats rhythm and my dreams still take me higher
I've travelled round the world but they can't cure my desire

The city looks pretty tonight
Hold on now let's go till morning

Get up on love and stand by me
Stand by love, stand by me

I'm a shell shocked lover, under cover that's my game
I'm your long lost brother, little sister what's your name

I feel so alone
I'm stranded and so far from home I'm calling
Get up on love and stand by me
Stand by love, and stand by me
Stand by love

Love - stand by love stand by me
Stand by love stand by me

Give me one good reason why you don't come play with fire
'Cos when the earth starts moving you know I'm no liar

The city looks pretty tonight
Oh hold on now let's go till morning

Get up on love and stand by me
Stand by love, and stand by me
Stand by love stand by

Stand by love
Stand by love stand by me
Stand by love stand by me
Stand by love stand by me
Stand by love stand by me
Stand by love stand by me
Stand by love stand by love
Stand by love stand by love

Theme For Great Cities

[No lyrics]

. . .



When routine bites hard, and ambitions are low
And resentment rides high, but emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways, taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold? You've turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed - our respect run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal that we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

You cry out in your sleep - all my failings expose
There's a taste in my mouth, as desperation takes hold
Just that something so good just can't function no more

. . .



You put the storm out, that's up in my head
You put the call out
Beside of me, kick up inside of me
And you steal the world and live to survive
And shake out the ghosts and then you turn around
In spite of me, kick up inside of me
One for the first time
Two for the last time
Three for the thrill and
Four for the last time
As far as I can see, you're gonna
Move deep deeper deep inside of me

Kick away my life kick away
You put the fear in me, kick away, kick away
As far as I can see you move deep deep inside of me
Take me away, take me away, up to another day
Open up the way, lead me away in the pouring rain
In the pouring rain

You put the storm out, that's up in my head
You put the call out
Beside of me, kick up inside of me
And we steal the world and live to survive
Shake out the ghosts and turn around
In spite of me, shake up the ghosts inside of me
One for the first time, two for the last time
Three for the thrill, and four for the last time
As far as I can see, you're gonna
Move deep deeper deep inside of me

Take me away, ah ah ah until another day
Take me away, kick away
As far as I can see you put the fear inside of me

. . .



Go tell it on the mountain
Like it burst forth like a fountain
Try to shake the deep foundations of this land
High up on lover's land
They got hotel rooms so grand
And no one here knows what goes behind closed doors

Take a step back to the middle of the track
Don't you know it's rumoured all around
Says you know it's come to town
Come on and take a step back to the middle of the track
'Cos the rumours are around said you're coming back to town

And with every little lie
You come and never blink an eye
You know you've got yourself all tied up
When you're around
I've got the modern world behind me
Like a needle in a haystack find me
They build you up and then they're going to burn you down

So take a step back to the middle of the track
The rumours all around
Said you're coming back to me
Come on and take a step back to the middle of the track
Says you know it's going upside, you know what's going down

I'm haunted by the wanderer deep inside
Wanted by
Haunted by
I'm haunted by the wanderer that's deep in my soul

Gonna look back to the middle of the track
And you know it's going upside
Le, le, da, le
Telling me
Ah ha, uh hu

Ooh look back to the middle of the track
And you know it's going upside
Telling me...

Don't tell me it's a bad dream
Don't tell me it's not what it seems
Don't tell me pretty soon you know

Gotta stop the roller coaster
Gotta make the most of it
Gonna pull you down

Gotta make the most of it

. . .



I want to know where you live
I want to know who you are
I want to see what you see
I want to go where you are

Want to touch what you touch
Want to be where you are
I want to know what city this is
Seems like I'm moving so far

Riot town right noise
A lightning streak
Fate rides up and moves us on
Mother don't weep

I want to see what you see
I want to touch - let me play
I want to try every poison in sight
I want to lie where you lay
Let me see let me see
I want to know what you know
I want to learn what's imprisoning me
Iwant to know let it go

Riot time right noise
Violent times speak
Bottled up - like a fake damnation
Lightning speed
Crackdown backdoors
Meltdown shoes
Bare back riders - a rank outsider
An automatic cruise

I want to touch what you touch
I long to be where you are
I'll always know - you'll let me know all this gets too far
Let me touch. Let me touch
Let me feel what you feel
I want to know how certain this is
I want to know this is real

Riot town, right noise
Lightning streak
Fate rides up and moves us on
Mother don't weep
Crackdown back door
Violent times speak
Fate rides up and moves us on

. . .



Footsteps, I can hear footsteps in the hall
I hear footsteps, seems like I've been through this before
Some time has come now, some time has passed
But things still look the same
Is heaven all above, and paradise below
And the questions still remain
Ooh, can we see you?
Ooh, are we near you?
How could you disappear out of here?
I wish for something, I wish you were here

Footsteps, I can hear footsteps in the hall
I hear footsteps, it seems like I've been through this before
Well we loved you then, I guess we always will
We love you still from here
Birds of a feather always stay together
And never separate, no fear
Ooh, can we see you?
Ooh, are we near you?
How could you disappear out of here?
I wish for something, I wish for something
I wish you were here, I wish you were here
I wish you well

Footsteps, I can hear footsteps in the hall
I hear footsteps, seems like I've been through this before
If all the world was turning blue and gold
Like through your eyes so clear
The time has come to celebrate our past
And crystalize this sphere
Ooh, can we see you?
Ooh, are we near you?
How can you disappear out of here?
I wish for something
Ooh, can we see you?
Ooh, are we near you?
How can you disappear out of here?
I wish for something
I wish you were here, I wish you were here
I wish you well

There will come a day
Oh some day our day will come

. . .



Life In A Day
The price that you pay
For time that you spent
It's such a fatal event
Take a look at your watch
There is no time to wait
Take a look deep inside
There's no escape from this day

Life In A Day
Life In A Day
Take a look around you
Is it true what they say
Life In A Day
Life In A Day
Is there no place to hide
Could there be some other way

Can you see how they run
Do you believe what they say
They'll soon be looking for you
For sure they'll get you away
The premonition came true
Look all around and you'll see
Some say it takes two to know
Or could it all just be me

Life In A Day
Life In A Day
I love to see how they run
They came a running this way
Life In A Day
Life In A Day
No sense in looking for you
They're going to get you one day

Life In A Day

. . .



What you gonna do about it
How you gonna live without it
Some of us are getting proud
And I don't know if that's allowed

People just can't forget it
This time!
Some of us are getting strong
Never want to wait too long
This time
And now I want to get away
I know what I want and I say what I say
Never want to live without it
This time!

And when the feelings show
I need the time to know
If I'm goin' to get it right
And when the feelings show
I need the faith to know
Well I don't know if I've got the message right

People can't get by without it
This time
Love is gonna get requited
This time
Some of us are getting strong
And I don't know if that's so wrong
Never want to wait to get it
This time

And when the feelings show
Tell me do you know
It I'm gonna get it right
When the light go low
Tell me do you know
Oh, I need to know
If I'm gonna get it right

People go to war to get it
This time
The devil called, better forget it
This time
Never gonna say that's wrong
Cos all I know I can't be wrong
Never go to bed without it
This time

Living in a street ain't easy
This time
Never gonna get it easy

. . .



Did you ever see the sun rise up
Above this blackened hole
Did you ever feel that what you want's
Not under your control
Ever think that how you feel
Is not quite what you are
Some of us are satellites
Some are superstars
They're killing Andy Warhol
He's a saint and he's a thief
We'll all die a million times
That's what I believe

Killing Andy Warhol
Killing Andy Warhol

They say the rain in Europe
Cools you down and helps you think
Water, water everywhere
Nothing you can drink
Kissing Andy Warhol
His skin feels like a shark
White hair sits so beautiful
Eyelids are so dark
And I'm trying to get ahead
Like any boy or girl
There'd be no dictators anywhere
If I could rule the world

Killing Andy Warhol
Killing Andy warhol

That's impossible - he got all that money
Adorable - having all that money
Feasable - that it's all black money
It's so criminal - making all that money

All I want, is what I'd want
But I don't want that now
They're dressing Andy Warhol up
If only thay knew how
Jesus on the neon sign
Turns and starts to laugh
And I'm thinking about this oxygen
And how I'll make it last

Killing Andy Warhol

He's a saint - yeah he's a thief
Motorways are everywhere
With no clean air to breathe

Killing Andy Warhol
Killing Andy Warhol

Till the end of time
Till the end of time

Having all that money
Killing Andy Warhol
He's got all that money
And it's real black money
Making all that money
Killing Andy Warhol

. . .



Time - way out of line
A whole nation waits outside
The rhythm of tomorrow
They can dance away their sorrows tonight
Lost - broken and scarred
Prisoner waits outside with his lone heart beating
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak
Let the children - let the children speak

Aims - dangerous games
Their mother says one false move and we all get hurt
I feel this sense of power I feel it every hour tonight

Let's not get lazy tonight
Things could get crazy cos
One more kick and the door cracks open
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak

Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children
Power to the powerless strength unto the weak
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak
I'm begging you now Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children
Power to the powerless, strength unto the weak
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak

Let's not get lazy tonight
Things could get crazy cos
One last kick and the door cracks open
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak

Power to the powerless, strength unto the weak
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak
Things could get crazy tonight
Let's not get lazy cos
One last kick and the door cracks open
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak
I'm begging you now
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children
Power to the powerless, strength unto the weak
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak
The language of this world
Let's not get lazy cos
One false move and we all get hurt
Let the children, let the children
Let the children, let the children speak

The language of this world

. . .



Voice leading to voices
Last song that the land sings
In colourful breathless emotional sea
Leaving us in this way

Seeing out the angel
From the shadow of a day
That stands alone and crying young
Singing fascination
For the twist in anxious days
That stand alone and crying young
See out the angels
For the rescue pools of life
That stand alone and crying young

Rescue by the first light
Receiving us with these tears
Feeling your gaze in the back of my eyes
Leaving worlds this way

In voice leading to voices
Last song that the land sings
In colourful breathless emotional sea
Leaving us this way

Seeing out the angels

. . .



The road opens wide
There's space here for the two of us
We'd like to call you
But now we are tired

The text is the same
The music as well
I'm just making this up
As I go along

Stay visible
How to stay visible when driving a motorcycle
Stay visible
How to stay visible when driving home alone

(la-la-lala)

The road keeps on flowing
I feel like I'm drowning
And in this little place
My bike does not fit
It does not fit in my parking space

Stay visible
How to stay visible when driving a motorcycle
Stay visible
How to stay visible when driving home alone

Home
Home Home Home

Oh Yeah
In France a skinny man
Died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle
And soon she did the same

At home there are seventeen-year-old boys
And their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called The Disciples
High on crack, totin' a machine gun

Time Time

Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling off a church
And killed everyone inside
You turn on the telly and every other story
Is tellin' you somebody died

Sister killed here baby cuz she could afford to feed it
And we're sending people to the moon
In September my cousin tried Reefer for the very first time
Now he's doing Horse, it's June

Time Time

It's silly, no? When a rocket ship explodes
And everybody still wants to fly

Some say a man ain't happy
Unless a man truly dies
Oh why

Time Time

Baby make a speech, Star Wars fly
Neighbors just shine it on
But if a night falls and a bomb falls
Will anybody see the dawn

Time Time

It's silly, no? When a rocket ship explodes
And everybody still wants to fly

Some say a man ain't happy
Unless a man truly dies
Oh why

Time Time

Sign O' The Times mess with your mind
Hurry before it's too late
Let's fall in love, get married, have a baby
We'll call him Hate...if it's a boy

Time Times

Cities, buildings falling down
Ideal homes falling down
These pictures I see on the wall
Timeless leaders stand so tall
Assassin in a hit and run
Asia steals a new born son
Evacuees and refugees
Presidents and monarchies

Travel round
I travel round
Decadence and pleasure towns
Tragedies,luxuries,statues,parks and galleries

Europe has a language problem
Talk, talk, talk, talk, talking on
In central Europe
Men are marching
Marching on and marching on
Love songs playing in the restaurants
Airport playing "Bi Some Lo"

Travel round
I travel round

Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my Life so that much more I see
In the Light of his Love
In the Light of reflection
Oh what a world
Or sometimes oh so it seems
Eyes in the skies
In that silver gift friendship
A Glittering Prize
Is it the prize of lost loves
They can remember quiet sides of midnight
They can remember the attraction of fame
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw up on a clear day
First taking hearts
Then our last breath away

Always came a time - time was on our side
We were spending time - we were staring out
Catch me in a dream - Captured all in heart
We were spending time - we were staring out
Could there ever be - ever more than one
It's called an act of Love
Can you you never stop?

Shine On, Shine the Light on me,
In all of my Life
So much more I see
Like a Glittering Prize
I saw you up on a clear day
First taking heart then our last breath away
Only on a clear day coming into our lives

See it in the eye - satellite skies
We were spending time - we were staring out
Take in, Take in more - The Endless breath away
We were spending time - we were staring out
Could there ever be - ever more than one
It's called an act of Love
Can you you never stop?

Always on a clear day
Crashing into our lives
Is it the Price of Love
Like a Glittering Prize
Always on a clear day
Crashing into our lives
With your love

Can you see us now we're on our own
And every chance has just come and just gone
Now it looks so dark and so cold
Think of the minds we sold
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now

I can remember things that looked so bright
And I could talk to you without all this spite
Can you picture all that's past
Does your face deform so fast
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now

'Cause when I stop and look into your head
I think of all the things that you said
When I look up into your eyes
I see the creature that I despise
Kill now
Kill now
Kill now
Kill now

Can you see us now we're on our own
And every chance has just come and gone
I've been wrong but you've been unkind
There's so much more that I can't find

Wasteland
Wasteland

You say to me things should soon be alright
I get so scared if I don't get out at night
The questions real
The answer so false
I just can't cope no more with this rate of pulse

I lost my past
I gave it away
I feel so insecure
I couldn't take another day
Please be kind
Don't call me no wreck
My nerves are very live you know
But soon they're going to break

No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Another Murder Story

So don't come too close
I can't stand the heat
I get nightmares of places people go to meet
It's so apparent when I walk in the door
That I'm all alone
There's no one home and no one wants me anymore
So claustrophobic if I stand I one place
This state of mind I'm in is positively quite a disgrace
The children from the street call out my name
"Hey You"
It's all so mutual but you know
I just don't want to share no fame

No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Murder Story
No Oh No

Thank you for the voice, the eyes and the memories shine
Thank you for the pictures of living in the beautiful black and the white
Some say we'll be together for a very long time
Some say that our first impressions never will lie

I open up to take a look into the bright and shiny book
Into the open scheme of things
Book of brilliant things
Book of brilliant things
I open up to take a look into the bright and shiny book;
Into the open scheme of things
Book of brilliant things
Oh, book of brilliant things

I thank you for the shadows
It takes two or three to make company
I thank you for the lightning that shoots up and sparkles in the rain
Some say this could be the great divide
Some day some of them say that our hearts will beat
Like the wheels of the fast train, all around the world

I open up to take a look into the bright and shiny book
Into the open scheme of things
Book of brilliant things
Book of brilliant things

Some say we can be together for a very long time
Some say our hearts will beat like the wheels of a fast train
All around the world
All around the world
All around the world
Some say our hearts beat like the wheels of a fast train
All around the world
All around, all around, around, around
All around the world

Our hearts beat like the wheels of a fast train
A very long time
All around and all around and all around and all around the world
Some say we'll be together
Some say

A very long time, some of them will say

So where did you go?
Where do you go in the Big Sleep
Going out in the Deep Sleep
Is where you're wandering now

So where did you go
When you're in the Big Sleep
Drifting in wildlife
And still you're wandering now

We were on the top and the world was spinning
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning
Communication lost in the thundering rain style
A shelter from the storm in the early beginning
Going out in the Big Sleep, out in the Big Sleep
Could have been years, you know it could have been years
Or only seconds ago

Big Sleep, Deep Sleep

Where are you now?
Now that you're up in Big Sleep
Valuable friend
They saw you leaving this way

We were on the top and the world was spinning
We were only young in the whirlpool of warning
Communication lost in the thundering rain style
A shelter from the storm in the early beginning
Where did you go?
Immaculate friend
For a lifetime I'm grateful
And it's only seconds away

Big Sleep, Deep Sleep

For evermore
If only you could see me
If only you could see me
If only you could see
Forever
Coming home in the Big Sleep

Paula came from Washington with long golden hair
Twenty eight dollars in a fake silk purse and a leather skirt to wear
Shane came from Dublin town from the old world so green
Counterfeit ticket in to JFK in the land of his dreams

Street life's the only life they take a walk in the park
Even tough they only met that day they were lovers by dark
Laid out on the morning skies he puts a ring on her hand
He said listen babe we gotta take what's ours do it or die

Quit dreaming this is real life baby
Real life's the only life what's it all about
Quit dreaming this is real life baby

Way out on the dock that night the colour is red
23rd victim of a gangland war takes his last breath
Outside the sister cried she said the whole world's so mean
Heavyweight killer in the ring, turns killing machine

Quit dreaming this is real life baby
Real life's the only life what's it all about
Quit dreaming this is real life baby

All my love, you're my all
They way you move, you're in control
The way you talk, the way you dress
Your hands, your touch, your sweet caress.
All my love, you're the best,
Every little thing that I possess,
It's all emotion when you take control,
I can feel wild horses running in my soul.
Oh my love, all I see
The stars, the sun, the energy,
If this going to kill us then let it go,
Quit dreaming this is real life baby

Up high above a desert sky where the space shuttles scream,
Sixteen men from a dying earth take their last dream.

Quit dreaming this is real life baby
Quit dreaming this is cheap life baby
Real life's the only life what's it all about
Quit dreaming this is cheap life baby
Your eyes, your lips, the shape of your mouth,
It's a sweet life baby
All my love, you're my all
The way you move, the way you go
I'm all emotion when you take control
I can feel wild horses running in my soul.
All my love, you're all I see
The stars, the sun, the energy,
The way you move, you're in control
