The morning paper
Look in the mirror
On your kitchen
Or in the coffee spoon
On your shirt sleeve
In the flat-screen
In your mailbox
Breathing over you

Come on baby, when will you see
'Cause you and I were meant to be
And know I got my target all on track
Baby you should know that I'm so good at that

Run to where you want, run to where you want
I am gonna find you
There aint no distance far enough
My love's gonna find you

Run to where you want, run to where you want
Maybe I'll remind you
There aint no engine fast enough
My love's gonna catch you

In your top drawer
In your cheque book
On your cellphone
By you every chair
In the next room
Behind the curtain
Can't escape me
I'm watching everywhere

Come on baby, when will you see
'Cause you and I were meant to be
And know I got my target, I'm on track
Baby you should know that I'm so good at that

Go to where you want
Go to where you want
I am gonna find you
There aint no distance far enough
My love's gonna find you

Run to where you want, run to where you want
Maybe I'll remind you
There aint no engine fast enough
My love's gonna catch you

Why waste your energy
No point in fighting
Let you heart surrender to your destiny

And this world's not big enough
For you to hide for long
In this game of hide and seek
There's nowhere left to run

Run to where you want, run to where you want
I am gonna find you
There aint no distance far enough
My love's gonna find you

Run to where you want, run to where you want
Maybe I'll remind you
There aint no engine fast enough
My love's gonna catch you

Catch you, catch you ...

. . .



We're gonna play a game
Just you and me
You never should be won
So easily
Your eyes are on the prize
I'm worth the wait
Don't need to know the end
'Cause darling

Magic stays when myth remains
I'm under your spell
Don't release me
Never give the game away
Try to keep me entertained
Baby
Don't make
It too easy
Leave something
For me and my imagination

We're a possibility
When you make it hard for me
Baby
I'm not in a hurry

Leave something
For me and my imagination

I don't need to know
Your every trick
So keep me guessing just
A little bit
'Cause hidden in your eyes
There's mystery
I want to get inside
To where the

Magic stays and myth remains
I'm under your spell
Don't release me

[Chorus]

Never give the game away
Try to keep me entertained
Baby
Don't make it too easy
Leave something...

[Chorus]

Never give the game away
Try to keep me entertained
Don't make it too easy, baby

For me and my imagination

We're a possibility
You make it hard for me
I'm not in a hurry baby
For me and my imagination

. . .


Do it, feel it, touch it, taste it
Be it, live it, need it, take it

Just another day
I want to get away
I've got a ticket for a new adventure
No one will know our name
So we can start again
And all we're gonna do is seek out pleasure

The city calls to me
It offers what i need
We can escape and take it on together

Bridge:
Come away with me

Chorus:
New york city lights so bright
We can lose ourselves
And start a new life
Run away and leave tonight
(let's do it, feel it, touch it, taste it)
New york city take a bite and
Subway down to times all night
It's me on world informed alright
(do it, feel it, touch it, taste it)

I want to take your hand
Fly over sea and land
It's the beginning of the end
It's our time

A dollar says it's true
This town gets hold of you
We'll see it written right across the skyline

Bridge
Chorus

Run away with me
Run away with me

Chorus
New york city lights so bright
We can lose ourselves and start a new life
Come on baby, please tonight
It's me on world, it's all alright
(let's do it, touch it, feel it, taste it)

Na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey
(be it, live it, need it, take it)

. . .



I can see you're somewhere far away
Caught in another place
Where nothings going right
Shouldn't worry about
The worst that could be
When you're here beside me
Don't look for troubled times
Now when everything is fine
[Bridge:]
So you need to fear the bad to see the good
And that's the thing you do
But don't let it spoil the view
Of what's around you
[Chorus:]
There's no rain, there's no storm
Though the blue sky makes you wonder
Don't you fear what will come
Will come
And right now we're in the sun
Sure enough, seasons change
But don't let today get lost
'Cause today the sun's on us
Today the sun's on us
You're so restless

Underneath the surface
Don't you think I notice
It's something you can't hide
When you're fighting with the tide
But you've got to let it go
And just accept the things you can't control
Don't let your shadow spoil the view
Of what's around you
[Chorus]
The years go by
Stars will rise and fall
Will you be by my side
Through it all?
[Chorus]
Today, the sun's on us

. . .



A new dawn waits for us tonight
If you play the cards, you're holding right
I swear I'll keep in party line
Cross my heart and hope to die
If I lose myself to rhythm
Doesn't mean I lose control
[Chorus:]
If I can't dance
If I can't dance
Oh, baby, if I can't dance
If I can't dance
If I can't dance
Then I don't need any part of your revolution
Can you see the action in my head?
The town we're painting turning red?
We need a new wave I can ride
If we are ever gonna turn this side
Politicize my own endeavors
I've no use for your protocol
[Chorus (x2)]
Oh darling don't be so unkind
The beat must never be denied
[Chorus (x2)]
Revolution
Revolution
Revolution

. . .



You take my breath away
And yet you're all I'm breathing for
I always want that little bit more of what you do
And I still feel today
The way I felt the first time we kissed
You made me live, not simply exist
Broke like a clear view out of the mist
I'd known
You turned my life to up from down
Taken me from lost to found
Raised me up and now I see
How high we are
And every night before I sleep
I hope and pray you're mine to keep
It's all I can do to thank my lucky stars
[Chorus:]
The distance between us
'Cos close is never close enough
And there's a world beyond your touch
I want to climb inside of you
And see your heart beat
Your heart beat
So now and here we are
Within a land that we're making our own

I can't believe how devotion has grown
And still it grows
We're not the first to fall so far
Won't be the last to give our hearts
But now it's me and now it's you
We own this love
Sounding out the way I feel
Reminds me that this dream is real
All that I can do is thank my lucky stars
[Chorus]
I've never felt like this before
Never felt this way before
Can't get close enough
Or stop myself from wanting more
[Chorus (x2)]

. . .


Bop-Bop Bop-Bop Bop-Bop Yeah
Bop-Bop Bop-Bop Bop-Bop Yeah

You forgot when we were strange
Yeah somewhere we got caught
Now every little bird is tame
Their wings are clipped and gulled
Fear puts your heart on ice
For some other rainy day
You only know that your alive
When I melt the ice away

My life, my dreams my everything
Are all yourrrrrrs, baby
I'm willing to complete this act of faith
'cause living only happens when you wait

If you go
If you stay
Sometimes better breaking, baby
In the sun
Before its gone

If you love
If you feel
If you wonder
how this heaven could be real
Then let it burn

Some might say ain't no sun
without the rain, like I know
I knew .. Yeah [breathy]
Some might say, nothing given, nothing gained
Yes that's true .. how about you baby

My life, my dreams my everything
Are all yourrrrrrs, baby
I'm willing to complete this act of faith
'cause living only happens when you wait

Chorus

intro

'Cause I'd like, like
To be somebody who
You take a chance on
I would take a chance on you
Everyday
Like, like to be somebody
who you take a chance on
I would take a chance on you
Everyday

I got myself a son
I take my love and run
I got you babe

Oh, yeah
'Cause I need somebody's love
And half is not enough
To make me stay
I've got you babe

Chorus

If you go, if you stay

. . .



I have been waiting for you
I have been storing all my devotion
It flows like an ocean now
It seems I've never felt so complete
It's like I've woken up from a deep sleep
But dreaming of you somehow
I've become fond of having you near
The way I'm fond of breathing in air
How could I be without you?
[Chorus:]
Yes, my love, darling I was made for you
Never will this alter, anytime you falter
I'll be there, I'll be there
Yes, my love, I open up my heart for you
Everyday that's breaking
You will hear me saying
Love is here, love is here
Never fear, 'cos baby, love is here
And so a new beginning
My heart, my head is spinning
I'm dizzy
Yeah, you make me giddy now
You make my life have purpose
And so I'm gonna make my goal just to love you

As much as I can do, yeah
I hope you're proud of being my man
The way I'm proud of holding your hand in my hand
[Chorus]
I've become fond of having your near
The way I'm fond of breathing in air
How could I be without you?
[Chorus (x2)]

. . .



I don't know why you cry
You must have a windswept eye
They're the same old tears
You've worn for years
So they suit you better than I
I don't know why you cry
The tears are a strange device
They roll like dice
They're cold like ice
And they suit you better than I
[Bridge:]
You don't want me
But you need me
You don't have to
But you should do
[Chorus:]
'Cos I may be the only one
(in the world)
Yeah I may be the only one
(in the world)
Oh I may be the only one
(in the land)
Yeah I may be the only one
(who understands you, yeah)

So if you're feeling lonesome today
Honey, don't you dare to push me away
'Cos I may be the only one
(in the land)
Yeah I may be the only one
Who understands you, yeah
I'll take you for a ride
To see you from inside
The outlook's bleak
But when I speak
I'll see a change in your tide
I don't know why you cry
But honey make it mine
'Cos up my sleeve, I do believe
I'll change those tears into wine
[Bridge]
[Chorus]
You can't see wood for all the trees
For you I'm good, permission, please
To be your girl, to hold you tight
To rock your world, you know I'm right
So come on baby, you better make a move
I won't wait forever, what have you got to lose?
[Chorus (x2)]

. . .



Have we met before?
Or is that just to break the ice
If our paths had crossed
I should recall such paradise
Inside me passion's stirring
Forgive me, you're divine
[Chorus 1:]
My new flame speeding towards me
A new flame to warm my heart
I feel my temperature soaring
My new flame what a spark
Are you often here?
Where d'you like to go?
And can I come?
All I know for me to speak so free
It's not often done
But with the way we're heading
I figure we'll be fine
[Chorus 2:]
[Chorus 1]
My new flame hold me together
The old flame fall apart
Around me bridges are burning
My new flame what a spark

You release me
You please me
Hypnotise me
Capsize me
Fascinated
Captivated
Exaggerated
Worth the wait-ed
What a fire!
[Chorus 2]

. . .



Here I am, all alone
Come see the girl with the china heart
Keep me safe, safe from harm
Hurt me and sound the alarm
Lovers they surrender
Cos nothing lasts forever
Can you free my heart?
[Chorus:]
My china heart, a work of art
So cold to those who play
I can easily break
My china heart, behind the glass
What good does it do?
I need someone like you
To love and warm me through
Every night, every day
I am the girl with the china heart
Lock and key, guarding
So look but I can't let you touch
Hungry dogs will chase you
If you try to get through
dare you free my heart?
[Chorus (x2)]

. . .



My eyes don't lie
They show the truth
I've fallen for you
To fight it's no use
I promised myself
I'd never give in
But your love won me around
My feet left the ground
And so here I go again
[Chorus:]
What have we started?
Don't break this heart of mine
Have I been fool enough
To let you walk away with all of me?
What have we started?
I'm so far in this time
That if you hurt me now
I may never love again
Look at me now
I'm under your spell
Where does our story end?
It's for you to tell
See I'm old enough now
To understand love

What it's capable of
And the pain it can cause
Oh but here I go again
[Chorus]
I don't want to waste this chance
You could be well worth the danger
Better to have loved and lost
But it's so hard to say now I've given my heart away
[Chorus]
