[Instrumental] (Louis Clark)
Talk is cheap, but it can't pay For all the hurt you threw my way Oh, no - Oh, no Love is blind but I can see You're trying to make a fool of me I know - I know Sometimes I feel just like I'm running on ice I might slip and slide girl But you won't hurt me twice, oh no CHORUS No matter what you say You'll never stop me Breaking down the walls around your heart No matter what you do You just can't stop me Breaking down the walls around your heart Love is passion, love is pain The heat is on, we're all insane I know, I know Life is bitter, life is sweet You just can't ever admit defeat Oh, no - oh, no Sometimes it feels like we've been fighting too long It can't be right to make me feel so wrong - oh, no CHORUS Did you ever feel like superman got the world in your hands But you never can Seem to break down the walls Did you ever feel like a drowning man Got your life in your hands But you never can Seem to break down the walls Sometimes it feels just like I'm running on ice I might slip and slide girl But you won't hurt me twice - oh, no CHORUS (Phil Bates)
I hear your voice close on the phone But I know you're far away I've waited so long to talk to you But now I can't find the words to say So I sit and I listen to you Breathe on the open line I can almost taste your lips And touch your hair It's like intoxicating wine I can almost see your face Through the miles and miles of space CHORUS I can feel the power of a million lights When I see your eyes burn bright I can see the sparks of a million volts When you touch me through the night I can feel the heat across a million miles When you voice comes through the line I can feel the power of a million lights Come through the satellite Although these oceans hold us apart Where there's a will there's a way I'm going to reach across the miles of sea No matter what they say So close your eyes and I'll be there There's magic in the sky tonight When you see the lightning flash around the world It's the power of a million lights Until I see your face Through the miles and miles of space CHORUS Somewhere over the atmosphere The signals are crossed Now you're not so clear The power is out and the lights are down My head is spinning Round and round and round and round and round You know I need you more tonight By the power of a million lights (Eric Troyer)
[Instrumental} (Louis Clark)
I'm lying here, I know the night must fall The edge of darkness is so near So hold back the night, hold back the night It's the darkness that I fear And in my heart there's not a shadow of a doubt The final truth waits there fore me Nowhere to hide, nowhere to hide From the memories CHORUS Give me one more tomorrow All these todays alone Mean nothing anymore Give me one more tomorrow Another chance to find What I've been searching for Inner voices in the quiet of the night Angry silence calls to me There's no time for tears, no time for tears Find a way to break free CHORUS I'm praying for a little piece of heaven tonight I'm searching for some help from a friend And all I need is a miracle To help me through this night that never ends, it never ends CHORUS TWICE (Bev Bevan, Mik Kaminski, Phil Bates)
Don't want to talk, don't want to walk Don't want to do anything Don't want to kick, don't want to scream Don't want to sleep, don't want to dream Just want to sit, just want to stare Do what you want I don't care Wait for the phone, wait for the ring Don't want to do anything CHORUS Don't want to work, don't want to play Just sit around everyday Don't want to dance, don't want to sing Don't want to do anything Don't want to laugh, don't want to cry Just want to sit and wonder why It's just too much without your touch Don't want to do anything CHORUS (Eric Troyer)
World's going through some changes I see so many things that I don't understand And people - have got to feel the power We got to take our lives back Into our own hands This is no time for silence We got to be stronger We can't live with the violence We can't live with the fear CHORUS Voices - I wanna hear them calling From the highest mountain Over land and sea Voices - I wanna hear them calling Hear the sound of freedom Calling out to me Life - just turns in a circle If we look for solutions In the mistakes of the past And now - we got to look to the future We got to find the answers We got to find them fast So put the wheels in motion If you wanna make changes Out across the ocean Let your words ring out CHORUS (Phil Bates, Mik Kaminski)
[Instrumental] (Louis Clark)
I wait till everyone's asleep Then out into the night I creep No one can see me now Or hear me running, soundlessly The moon's the only light I need To search for food, young ones to feed But as the dawn is drawing near the earth, my way's not clear I'm trapped on the outside Moonlight save me, moonlight save me Moonlight save me, moonlight save me Unearthly fear, it grips my skin Unearthly sound, the hunt begins I hear excited cries But dare not look from where I'm hiding The multi-coloured humans ride Soon they will find me where I hide The brown and white tormentors Begin to howl and then I'm running Moonlight save me I cut across the trail I left five miles before One chance to throw them off my scent but I'm not sure An elder told me it had worked sometime before My heart is beating like a drum I make the ridge, but can't go on I turn to face my death But nothing comes to stop me breathing Down in the clearing now I see They're searching all around for me Confusion everywhere But I am safe up here, I've won, I've won, I've won, I've won, I've won (Kelly Groucutt)
Just don't look, no matter what they say Don't let her get to you, make her go away But you're only human And the best laid plans of men go astray So all your good sense Goes out the door When you see that girl walk across the floor Too late you've seen her You've had a glimpse of paradise CHORUS You never want to have to choose Is it love or money now Even if you win you lose Is it love or money now I'll close my eyes, I don't want to see you Just go ahead say what you will And I'll agree I don't want illusions Don't want confusions anymore CHORUS Is it love or money, I said love or money That can make your dreams come true I know it sounds so funny But it's always love or money That makes you do the crazy things that you do CHORUS (Eric Troyer, Phil Bates)
Blue violin Play for me your saddest melody Violin Play for me your saddest melody (Kelly Groucutt, Mik Kaminski)
Long hair, flashing eyes The kind of hips that make you fantasize A slow smile, just meant to tease One look and you'll be weak at the knees They got my head in a whirl 'Cos I can't get enough of those whiskey girls They got the world at their fingertips With just a look and lick of the lips They understand the rhythm of the night I'm in a daze, I don't know wrong from right They got my head in a whirl 'Cos I can't get enough of those whiskey girls CHORUS Hypnotised - by the whiskey girls Compromised - out of this world Lord above, could this be love Ain't no doubt about it I'm crazy about the whiskey girls Whiskey girls are out on the town They'll break your heart, they'll bring you down Whiskey girls are out of control For just one touch you'd sell your soul The moon is high I'm getting out of the line Whishful thinking with a one track mind I'm having flashes, oh can't you see they're walking through my private fantasy Wearing only a necklace of pearls Those slow walking, long-legged whiskey girls CHORUS TWICE (Bev Bevan, Phil Bates)
[Instrumental] (Louis Clark)
Lipstick traces on an unmade bed We drank all night and got devils in our head She said some things that should have stayed unsaid Emotions overflowing Now I don't know what to believe Sitting here in the cold light of the day She felt anger, I felt pain I walked out into the pouring rain Packed my bags and took the midnight train Didn't care where it was going On my way, running like a thief Hard to leave, but harder to stay There's no wrong, there's no right But sometimes she breaks all the rules And lying here alone tonight Can't believe love can be so cruel Wish I'd believed her 'Cos now I need her Sometimes the truth just hurts too much She goes straight to the heart With a truth that always finds me She goes straight to the heart And pulls tight the ties that bind me She can be so cold, and it tears me apart When she twists the knife It goes straight to the heart Sometimes love is an endless fight It's never simple, never black and white Just like ships passing in the night Who knows where they're going No forgiveness, no reprieve Both sailing their separate ways Light of day, dead of night I'm searching for what I can't find Try and try as I might I can't get her out of my mind Wish I'd believed her 'Cos now I need her I guess we all must love and learn She goes straight to heart With a truth that always finds me She goes straight to the heart And pulls tight the ties that bind me She can be cold, and it tears me apart When she twists the knife It goes straight to the heart (Kelly Groucutt, Bev Bevan, Phil Bates)
Stepping out of the shadows I'm blinded by the light there'll be no more wasted days No more sleepless nights Stepping out of your shadow I finally see the light No more mister nice guy I'm ready for the fight Weight off my shoulders No more tears to cry The chains are broken now I see through your disguise CHORUS 1 I'm so glad you're gone So glad you said goodbye I'm so glad you're gone So glad you said goodbye Do you really think I'd just lay down and die No infatuation I don't believe your lies I can see clearly now The truth behind your eyes Weight off my shoulders No more tears to cry The chains are broken I see through your disguise CHORUS 2 I'm so glad you're gone So glad you said goodbye I'm so glad you're gone So glad you said goodbye No more angry words, no chance for you to lie Did you really think I'd just lay down and die Passion fades away Love can turn to hate And all the words I want to say Are left in the hands of fate CHORUS 2 (Bev Bevan, Eric Troyer, Phil Bates)
