Lyrics
Tímida [Vulnerable]

Es así
la veo sonreir con ojos distraidos
quieta en una esquina
como si yo no estuviera allí

Creo yo que el juego para dos
los dos el mismo juego
pero no se da
de pronto ya no está
y no me deja ni un adiós

Ella es tímida
se esfuma si la ves
ella es tímida
por eso es como es
yo no soy capaz de lastimar su corazón
ella es tímida
más que tímida

Fíjate
la quiero pero sé
que es dulce
y vulnerable tan frágil como hilos de cristal
no quireo hacerle mal

Conozco sus secretos pero no
la voy a hacer sufrir
porque es tan débil como un pétalo de flor
y su dolor me duele a mí

Ella es tímida
se esfuma si la ves
ella es tímida
por eso es como es
yo no soy capaz de lastimar su corazón
ella es tímida
más que tímida

Yeah! Ella es así

Ella es tímida
se esfuma si la ves
ella es tímida
por eso es como es
yo no soy capaz de lastimar su corazón
ella es tímida
se esfuma si la ves

Ella es tímida
por eso es como es
yo no soy capaz de lastimar su corazón
Ella es tímida
más que tímida

Bringing Me Down To My Knees

Bringing me down to my knees

Been thinking about you
Without even trying
I’ve done it
There’s something about you
I can’t put my finger on it

Monday was fine
and I was on a high
Oh you thrilled me
I should be alright
but Friday I died when you killed me

You’re bringing me down to my knees, oh oh
Love me forever or baby
just let it go, oh oh
I’m begging you please to ease
allow your feelings to show; oh oh
You’re bringing me down to my knees ‘cos I love you so

If your love is strong
I want to be so sure about it
Oh is it all wrong to go on talking about it?

Monday was fine
yea the hours went by like a summer breeze
But way down the line
you might make up your mind
and it’s time to freeze

You’re bringing me down to my knees, oh oh
Love me forever or baby
just let it go, oh oh

I’m begging you please to ease
allow your feelings to show, oh oh
You’re bringing me down to my knees ‘cos I love you so
Oh, you’re bringing me down to my knees ‘cos I love you so

oh oh yeah
bringing me down to my knees
oh oh
love me forever or baby
just let me go, oh oh
I’m begging you please to ease
allow your feelings to show, oh oh
Love me forever or baby
just let it go, oh oh

I’m begging you please to ease
allow your feelings to show
Oh, you’re bringing me down to my knees ‘cos I love you
I love you so
I’m begging you please to ease
allow your feelings to show, oh oh

I’ve been thinking about you
I’ve been thinking about you, oh baby
and I love you
and I love you

Harleys & Indians (Riders In The Sky)

When I go to heaven
Harley Harley heaven
I want to meet a King
like the Panhead 48
I want to meet the Fat One
we can talk for hours
when my time has come, babe
I won’t be running late

Flying high
riders in the sky
na na na na

When I go to heaven
I want to meet the Chiefs
yea, I want to meet all Scouts
I won’t miss my friends
cos I know where they’ll be
we’re all part of the Indian Family

Flying high
riders in the sky
na na na na

It’s alright, baby
I’m OK, honey
I’m only travellin’ thru this state of mine

Hey it’s alright, mama
I’m doin’ fine now, mama
I’m only in a certain state of mind

When I go to heaven
hog hog heaven
I’ll have a drink with Elvis
while Marlon’s on his way
we’re kickin’ and we’re revvin’
we’re dressing up in style
it’s time to take a ride
on that freeway in the sky

Flying high
riders in the sky
na na na na

Come on, come on

Go To Sleep

There’s a shadow on the terrace
a snow dance for the living
there’s heavy weather on the way
I heard it on the news

And life’s a tough principal who won’t reward the losers
your name is on the tea-cup
there’s nothing I can do

But to wish you’d think about me
before you go to sleep
and I wish you the best there is
before you go to sleep

There are tears without the colour
a million seas with water
an ocean full of people where shattered hearts can go

And love’s a golden ripple where answers are so simple
but the explanations are very hard to do

And I wish you’d think about me
before you go to sleep
and I wish you the best there is
before you go to sleep
go to sleep

Spending My Time

What’s the time?
Seems it’s already morning
I see the sky it’s so beautiful and blue
the TV’s on
but the only thing showing is a picture of you

Oh I get up and make myself some coffee
I try to read a bit but the story’s too thin
I thank the Lord above
that you’re not here to see me
in this shape I’m in

Spending my time
watching the days go by
feeling so small I stare at the wall
hoping that you think of me too
I’m spending my time

I try to call
but I don’t know what to tell you
I leave a kiss on your answering machine
Oh help me please
is there someone who can make me
wake up from this dream?

Spending my time
watching the days go by
feeling so small I stare at the wall
hoping that you are missing me too
I’m spending my time

Spending my time
watching the sun go down
I fall asleep to the sound of “Tears of a Clown”
a prayer gone blind
I’m spending my time

My friends keep telling me:
“Hey, life will go on
time will make sure I get over you
this silly game of love –
you play, you win only to lose.”

Spending my time
watching the days go by
feeling so small
I stare at the wall
hoping that you think of me too
I’m spending my time

Spending my time
watching the sun go down
I fall asleep to the sound of “Tears of a Clown”
a prayer gone blind
I’m spending my time

Crush On You

I’m a zombie in the moonlight
I’m sleepin’ when it’s daylight
I really should be alright
but I’m feelin’ kinda uptight
I’m messin’ with a neighbour
who killed my amp and Fender
he looked to sweet and tender
it’s hard to tell his gender
got coffee on the paper
my dog’s an alligator
I want you now and later

I got a crush got a crush on you
got a crush got a crush on you

I’m rentin’ the wrong movie
I’m laughin’ at the wrong guy
I’m drivin’ on the wrong side
my brain is gettin’ cock-eyed
the flag is never chequered
can’t find my F-beat records
God, give a little lovin’
the money’s in the oven
got dead flies in my scotch with ice
my talents always vaporize
I want your bird of paradise

I got a crush got a crush on you
Got a crush got a crush on you

Crush! Crush! We got a good thing goin’ on
Crush! Crush! Such a good thing goin’ on

I’m freezin’ in the summer
I’m sweatin’ in the winter
no middle in the centre
no colours in the printer
no treatment at the pharmacy
no lessons learned from history
no future in the factory
no meaning in the poetry
no changin’ in the weather
no Elvis in the leather
I want you now or never

I got a crush got a crush on you
got a crush got a crush on you

Surrender

She knows I’d do anything she wants me to
the love she finds is deeper then the ocean
she knows I’d do anything she wants me to
a river of dew warmer than the dawning

Surrender – tie the cover to the ground
surrender – tie the cover to the ground
but don’t turn around and walk away again
don’t turn around and walk away again

He knows I’d say anything he wants to hear
bright and clear call the voice of lovers
he knows I’d do anything he wants me to
like ruby rain I wash away the pain

Surrender – tie the cover to the ground
surrender – tie the cover to the ground
but don’t turn around and walk away again
don’t turn me down and walk away again

Seduce Me

Don’t ever say you do
don’t ever say you
want to make me shine
you keep your mystery
don’t ever try
to be my guiding light

mmm…

Don’t ever say you care
don’t follow when I’m here
and everywhere
I’m blinded by your looks
but there’s a scent
of heartache in the air
in the air…

Hey you!
Walk out through that door
and into that dream
where I met you before
oh oh…

Babe you seduce me
you take my heart and use me
my feelings all run wild
when you seduce me all the time

Don’t ever call me up
I never wanna hear your voice again
oh lay your pretty hands on someone else
somebody who don’t know you well
know you well…

Hey you!
Your sweet sweet talk can’t stay
and get back to that dream
let’s both keep it that way
hey hey…

Oh you seduce me
you pull my heart and use me
and I keep running blind
when you seduce me all the time

Mmmm… get back to that dream
let’s both keep it that way
hey hey…
tell me once again…

You seduce me
you take my heart and use me
my feelings all run wild
when you seduce me all the time
when you seduce me all the time
you seduce me all the time
you seduce me…

Habla el corazón [Listen To Your Heart]

En realidad yo dudo tanto de tí
por más que intento no me dejo llevar
pruebo tu amor y me siento fatal
pero yo te quiero
bien o mal

Habla el corazón que no sabe mentir
habla el corazón a todas horas de tí
oigo cosas bonitas y presto atención
habla el corazón y yo escucho su voz

A veces pienso que no hay nada que hacer
que tú y que tenemos poco que ver
pero al final habla el corazón dica que te quiero
óyelo

Habla el corazón que no sabe mentir
habla el corazón a todas horas de tí
oigo cosas bonitas y presto atención
habla el corazón y yo escucho su voz
oigo las voces que hablan de tí
yo no te quiero y ellas dicen que si
soy obediente sé que tienen razón
dejo que hable mi corazón

Habla el corazón que no sabe mentir
habla el corazón a todas horas de tí
oigo cosas bonitas presto atención.
habla el corazón y yo… Oh

Habla el corazón que no sabe mentir
habla el corazón a todas horas de tí
oigo cosas bonitas y presto atención
habla el corazón y yo…
escucho su voz

Make My Head Go Pop

I don’t know much about you
but I’m pretty sure I wanna be with you
I haven’t got a clue what is wrong
what is right
what is left to do
I read a magazine
I watch TV-screen
I dive into a dream only to find me in love with you

I wish you’ll never stop to make my head go pop
You make my head go pop pop p-pop pop pop pop every time you’re around

It’s a pleasant valley Sunday
and everything seems to be beautiful
people go to church
but I’m found contemplating by the swimmingpool
I’m gazing at the sun
I watch him bringing joy to everyone
I feed the ducks with a bun only to find me in
love with you

I wish you’ll never stop to make my head go pop
You make my head go pop pop pop pop pop pop
You make my head go pop pop p-pop pop pop pop ever time
you’re around
press to play and never stop to make my head
go pop
Yea you make my head go pop pop pop pop pop pop
every time you’re around

Make my head go pop pop pop
Make my head go pop pop
Go pop pop
I feed the ducks with a bun only to find me in love with you

Crash! Boom! Bang!

My Papa told me to stay out of trouble
“When you’ve found your man, make sure he’s for real!”

I’ve learned that nothing really lasts forever
I sleep with the scars I wear that won’t heal
they won’t heal

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That’s the call, that’s the game
and the pain stays the same

I’m walking down this empty road to nowhere
I pass by the houses and blocks I once knew

My Mama told me not to mess with sorrow
but I always did, and Lord, I still do
I’m still breaking the rules

I kick it up
I kick it down

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!
that’s my real middle-name
it has always been the same
that’s the call, that’s the game
and the pain stays the same.

I still feel the heat
slowly fallin’ from the sky
and the taste of the kissing
shattered by rain
comin’ tumblin’ from behind
and the wild holy war

I kick it up
I kick it down

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the roses dying on the floor
Crash! Boom! Bang!
that’s the call, that’s the game
and the pain stays the same
that’s my real middle-name
it has always been the same

Oh Yea Oh Yea Oh Yea Uh-huh
been the same, been the same
it has always been the same

Dressed For Success

Tried to make it little by little
tried to make it bit by bit on my own
quit the job
the great believers
another town where I get close to the bone

Whatcha gonna tell your brother?
Oh oh oh
Whatcha gonna tell your father?
I don’t know!
Whatcha gonna tell your mother?
Let me go…

I’m gonna get dressed for success
shaping me up for the big time, baby
get dressed for success
shaping it up for your love
yea yea yea

I’m not afraid
a trembling flower
I’ll feed your heart and blow the dust from your eyes
and in the dark
things happen faster
I love the way you sway your hips next to mine

Whatcha gonna tell your brother?
Oh oh oh
Whatcha gonna tell your father?
I don’t know!
Whatcha gonna tell your mother?
Let me go…

I’m gonna get dressed for success
hitting a spot for the big time, baby
get dressed for success
shaping it up for your love
Look sharp!

Almost Unreal

Babe, come in from the cold
and put that coat to rest
Step inside
take a deep breath
and do what you do best

Yea, kick off them shoes
and leave those city streets
I do believe love came our way
and fate did arrange for us to meet

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me.
The way that you touch
you’ve got the power to heal
You give me that look
it’s almost unreal
it’s almost unreal.

Hey, we can’t stop the rain
let’s find a place by the fire
Sometimes I feel
strange as it seems
you’ve been in my dreams all my life

I love when you do that hocus pocus to me
The way that you touch
you’ve got the power to heal
You give me that look
it’s almost unreal
it’s almost unreal

It’s a crazy world out there
Let’s hope our prayers are in good hands tonight

Wish I Could Fly

Halfway through the night
I wake up in a dream
Echoes in my head
Make every whisper turn into a scream

I dreamed I could fly
Out in the blue
Over this town
Following you
Over the trees
Subways and cars
I’d try to find out
Who you really are

In the middle of the night
Cool sweatin’ in my bed
Got the windows open wide
Thinkin’ about all the things you said

I wish I could fly
Out in the blue
Over this town
Following you
I’d fly over rooftops
The great boulevards
To try to find out
Who you really are
Who you really are

I wish I could fly now
Wish I could fly now
Wish I could fly now

I wish I could fly
Around and around
Over this town
The dirt on the ground
I’d follow your course
Of doors left ajar
To try to find out
Who you really are

To try to find out
Who you really are

Voices

I knew this would happen
and I don’t want to be around
when it gets out
I’ve closed the last picture
and painted the window
inside and out
give me your dreams and I’ll give you my time
together we’ll cross the borderline

Voices – cracking the night
Voices – that cut like a knife
Voices – hear them singing: Ooh ooh

From sparks to the fire
from here to obsession they cover the end
twisting a match
and see the reflections of hunters of men
give me your dreams and I’ll give you my time
until we make it to the borderline

Voices – cracking the night
Voices – that cut like a knife
Voices – hear them singing: Ooh ooh

Sweet Hello, The Sad Goodbye, The

Red like fire was the day I met you
I tell you now there are no regrets
in this room there are many memories
some are good some I try to forget
I thought we were the chosen ones
who were supposed to fly

We’re very much the same you and I
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
still waiting to get hurt time after time
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
when love lies in our hands
we seem to run and hide
and I can’t help but wonder why
the sweet hello the sad goodbye

My heart was like a runaway train babe
I don’t believe I’ve ever felt more alive
in this room I hear voices linger
we never talked about the price
you know you’re not the only one
who knows how to cry

We’re very much the same you and I
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
still waiting to get hurt time after time
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
when love lies in our hands
we run away and hide
and I can’t help but wonder why
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
the sweet hello the sad goodbye

We’re very much the same you and I
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
still waiting to get hurt time after time
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
when love lies in our hands
we run away and hide
and I can’t help but wonder why
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
goodbye

the sweet hello the sad goodbye
the sweet hello the sad goodbye
the sweet hello the sad goodbye

my dream comes true
i don’t mind showing for you
i reveal everything for you
just about anything

Como la lluvia en el cristal [Watercolours In The Rain]

Tantas emociones sin vivir
tanto desarmor
aquí entró nunca el sol

Cuántas ilusines íntimas sin compensaciones
corazón cómo te pones
pasé por la vida sin pisar, sin amar

La gota perdida que se va, que se va, ya no está
como la lluvia en el cristal

Cuántas veces he sufrido soledad
cuántas veces he caído por confesar la verdad
he dado tanto amor mm tanta pasión
como loca por la vida sin control, sin salida
pasé por la vida sin pisar, sin amar

La gota perdida que se va, que se va, ya no está
como la lluvia en el cristal
como la lluvia en el cristal
como la lluvia en el cristal

Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)

I left and wrote this song cos my life looked so shatterd
I thank the Lord I’m still strong like before
I picked myself up from the floor and tried

I tried just a little bit harder oh yea
if someone wants you to bleed
and it feels like your’re dying
don’t make the moves you don’t need
don’t cry just say ba-ba-bye-bye and try try

Try just a little bit harder -you’ll survive
try just a little bit harder -go ahead and try

Mondays and rainy days were in my pocket
I don’t want to send them on to you
bring them to you

Fireworks

I once knew a girl
I can’t remember her name
but I remember her face
cos her sister looked the same

They both left school
but they couldn’t find a job
so they said farewell
and stole a small town car

As they were riding by the beach some summer night
the radio shouted out one of those songs
that might just change your life

– It went like this:


“Checkin’ in checkin’ out
making love I like watching all your fireworks
I like it when I light up those stars in your eyes
just like fireworks in the sky”

– yes it did…

Throwing some poems to the ports and docks
they were sleeping outdoors pushing all their luck.
they sent me a letter full of pills and thrills
then they both got rich and moved to Hollywood Hills

Yea they made lots of money playing folk guitar
cos everywhere the boys went crazy just to hear these words of art:


“Checkin’ in checkin’ out
take it to the sky
making love I like watching all your fireworks
I like it when I light those stars in your eyes
just like fireworks in the sky”

They’re coming to get you
they’re coming to get you now
coming to get you now
watch the sky!

Sleeping Single

Here’s the house
here’s the city and the stream
here’s the father to my dream
here’s the lost and lonely look in your eyes
when you leave
I will break down and cry

Sleeping single
I will wait for you
I’m sleeping single
’til you change your mind
sleeping single
I will wait for you
’til time has gone by

I’ll pay the price
for all the love you poured like rain
“toujours l’amour” over again
but the midnight chills are getting so rough
and the bed is big enough for both of us

Sleeping single
I would die for you
I’m sleeping single
won’t you change your way
sleeping single
I will pray for you to stay
he-hey … he-he-hey…

She Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

We grew up together
we’ve been here forever
barefoot in the summer
cold in stormy wheather
she taught me all there is
magic and love
lots of forgotten words

But now
she doesn’t live here anymore
she’s off and she’s gone
she doesn’t live here anymore
I’m sorry that’s all
there is to it
I’m sorry that’s all

She dressed just like a painter
a female street Picasso
and I I will remember
the heaven in her laughter
and the scent of her sweet perfume
when we made love under an August moon

But now
she doesn’t live here anymore
she’s off and she’s gone
she doesn’t live here anymore
she’s gone since long so long
she doesn’t live here anymore
she took off and left home
she doesn’t live here anymore

I’m sorry that’s all
there is to it
I’m sorry that’s all
that’s all

You Can’t Put Your Arms Around What’s Already Gone

I saw red stayed at home
Placed a big pillow over the phone
In this town where I’m from
I’ve learned two is so much better than one

But you left me alone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Well you hurt to the core
You used to kiss like no one had done before
And your taste turned me on
Now you drive me real crazy just by being born

Cos you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
And you can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Baba b-baba b-baba ba
Baba b-baba b-baba ba

Took the tram ’round the bay
Where everyone tells you to have a nice day
And my pride almost broke
When the tears don’t fit you
you look like a joke

And you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Cryin’ eyes gettin’ worn
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Hey you left (left left left) me alone (left me alone)
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone
Watch you sink like a stone
You can’t put your arms around what’s already gone

Baba b-baba b-baba ba

Cinnamon Street

Growing up on Cinnamon Street
everywhere you look there are lots of people to meet
it’s seven o’clock
the breakfast treat
now the schoolbus is here
hurry up and grab a seat

All the dreams are tiny ones
another week has just begun on Cinnamon Street

There was a girl on Cinnamon Street
the same age as me
we shared the curiosity
I won her heart cos I could play guitar
she promised me heaven at once and later all the stars
but it all remained the same
cos things can never change on Cinnamon Street

I can hear my heartbeat
the very first time we made love
life was a lazy rest in the sun
Later we went dancing
staying up all night long
playing all our favourite songs
Cinnamon songs
Oh oh na na na na na

I say goodbye to Cinnamon Street
springtime is here and the air is so dry and sweet
I walk in a cloud
the smell of cinnamon bread
it’s in my blood since the day I was born ’til I wake up…dead

And the sun is smiling gently
a funny shade of red
Cinnamon Street

I still feel my heartbeat
the very first time we made love
life was a lazy day in the sun
later we went dancing
hanging out all night long
singing all our favourite songs
Cinnamon songs
Oh oh na na na na na

Voice, The

Between the open heart
and the whisper goodbye
there’s a perfect teardrop in your eye
between the lover’s moon
and the trembling sky
there’s a broken dream in your mind

And the voice is carrying
the love you have lost
and the change of heart
in someone you trust
yea the voice is carrying
the love and the scars
hear the lonely voice in the dark

Between the careful touch
and the breakaway kiss
there’s a beauty you can’t resist
Mmm between the fall apart
and the moment of bliss
there must be something more than this

And the voice is carrying
the love you have lost
love you have lost
and the change of heart in someone you trust
yea the voice is carrying
the love and the scars
love and the scars
hear the lonely voice
in the dark
in the dark
hear the lonely voice
hear the lonely voice

And the voice is carrying
the love you have lost
love you have lost
and the change of heart
in someone you trust
yea the voice is carrying
the love and the scars
love and the scars
hear the lonely voice in the dark

Oh yea the voice is carrying
the love you have lost
love you have lost
and the change of heart in someone you trust
Yea the voice is carrying the love and the scars
love and the scars
hear the lonely voice in the dark
in the dark

Lonely voice
lonely voice in the dark
hear the lonely voice
hear the lonely voice in the dark

Myth

You were born with a one-story mind
in a one-story town
with sleepy Mondays all around

but you never slipped, no baby, you held tight
your peppermint teeth flashed in the night
you always made the wrong words sound all right

I love your myth
I love what they say about you, yea
I love all the things
all the things that you do
the talk of the town, the stories about you, yea
cream tangerine, baby I love your myth

I’ve got this urge comin’ on so strong
oh I want to take you home
I’ve got to, I’ve got to take you home

I’m feelin’ like a monkey hangin’ in a tree
I love when you pay attention to me
I want to read your steamy poetry

I love your myth
I love what they say about you, yea
I love every little thing
every little thing that you do
The talk of the town, the stories about you, yea
cream tangerine, baby I love your myth

I’ve got this feeling comin’ on so strong
I have to take you home tonight
I’ve got to take you

You never slip you always hold on tight
you make the wrong moves look all right

baby, I love your myth

I love your myth
I love what they say about you, yea
sweet tangerine, baby I love you

I love your myth
I love what they say about you, yea
I love every little thing
every little thing that you do
the talk of the town, the stories about you, yea
cream tangerine, baby I love your myth

Soy una mujer [Fading Like A Flower]

Puede ser que la tonta sea yo
que sin saberlo algo falló
puede que si… puede que no

El caso es que mi vida va al revés que
que me arrepiento siempre después
cuando no hay nada que hacer

Soy una mujer y a veces me equivoco
porque me fío de mi corazón
soy una mujer y por amor
yo soy capaz de todo
soy así impulsiva y natural
en el fondo persona normal para bien o para mal

Soy una mujer, si, y a veces me equivoco
porque me fío de mi corazón
soy una mujer y por amor yo soy capaz de todo
soy capaz de todo
soy capaz de todo hasta de perder

Soy una mujer si me quieres tener
no juegues con mi amor
Oh… no juegues con mi amor

Soy una mujer si y a veces me equivoco
porque me fío de mi corazón
Soy una mujer
y por amor yo soy capaz de todo

Soy una mujer y a veces me equivoco
porque me fío de mi corazón
soy una mujer
y por amor yo soy capaz de

Soy una mujer y a veces me equivoco
porque me fío de mi corazón
soy una mujer
y por amor yo soy capaz de todo

Fool

I was alone
I told my mouth to shot up
cos I was talking to myself
like I always do when I’m stuck
well, I was crying
you could be crying too
I was screaming throungh the windown
I keep missing you
and the tears came down from the sky
and the rain feel hard on my eyes

Now you know what I look like
I’m feeling like a fool
I lose on my own
I’m going back to school

And I will pray
Hallelujan
you’ll be breaking every rule
and come back to stay
I’m feeling like a fool

I really tried so hard to design my life
there’s a big black void in head
like it’s been cut by a knife
every time your name comes around
this stupidity follows me down

Now you know what I look like
I’m feeling like a fool
I thought I could swim I’m drowning in the pool

And I will pray
Hallelujan
you’ll be breaking every rule
and consider to stay
I’m feeling like a fool

Please come back to stay
I’m feeling like a fool
I’m feeling like a fool in my heart
I’m feeling like a fool

Fingertips

You’re sliding down a dream, o yea
where nights are born in blue, that’s the truth
you’re swimming in a stream, o yea
fish are jumping too, next to you

Suddenly you notice someone’s at the door
you could swear you’ve been through this all before

Then she runs
her fingertips through your hair
your life has just begun
her fingers
they are everywhere
you’re floating light like air
leaving the ground
and she shines on just like the sun

You’re gazing at the sky, o my
the stars are out tonight, shining bright
you’re waving to a cloud, bye-bye
you’re drowning in the smile of his eyes

Suddenly you feel there’s no time for a deal
though a voice tells you it’s for real

And she runs
her fingertips through your hair
and life has just begun
her fingers
they are everywhere
you’re floating light like air
leaving the ground
she-she shines on just like the sun

It’s just a sunny afternoon
somebody’s singing songs of love, child
you love a lazy afternoon once in a while

Paint

I’ve got a hot chilly feeling I don’t understand
I’ve got to run through this minute like a hurricane
I’ve got to tighten my wire from the sense to the soul
I find my back to the wall when it’s time to go
I’ve got to know is that your heartbeat?

Paint…me right
can you feel the heat in me tonight?
Oh I I’m the pearl
paint your love all over my world

I get a love shock/electric from the touch of your hand
I’m getting lost in the riddles of the modern man
I’ve got it up down all around tied to the bone
hey there’s a strange situation on the late nite show
I’ve got to know is that your heartbeat?

Paint…me right
Can you feel the heat in me tonight?
Oh I I’m the pearl
paint your love all over my world
do it right
I can feel the woman in me tonight
Oh I I’m the pearl
paint your love all over my world

Rain, The

I was raised the Northern way
and my father had a Northern name
I did my crying out in the pouring rain
and a season turned into another one
I found a heart bright like the morning sun
he touched my lips so softly with his fingertips

But I kept the rain
falling down on me
all the time
all the time
I kept the rain
falling down on me
all the time
all the time

And some things in life won’t ever change
there’s a smell of a rusty chain
and of love disappearing like an aeroplane

I’ve kept the rain
falling down on me
all the time
all the time
I’ve kept the rain
falling down on me
all the time
all the time

Waiting For The Rain

I’m waiting for the rain
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting for the rain
to clean my soul
I’m waiting for the rain
nothing’s gonna be better
without you

The day you left me
the day you came
I’ll never forget you
feel you in my pain
the time stood still
the time was flying
I wonder why
I’m not dying

I’m waiting for the sun
I’m waiting for a new day
I’m waiting for the night
to close my eyes
I’m waiting for the dark
oh it’s gonna be harder
without you

The way we danced
I’ll always miss
I’ll never forget
the way we kissed
the time stood still
the time was flying
I wonder why
I’m not dying

Na na na na na
Na na na na na

Neverending Love

Chasing your shadow
the senses together
four-leafed and clever
I come from behind.

Chasing your shadow
I wander in circles
you’re 1 in a million
we’re 2 of a kind.

It’s you that I long for
it’s you that I hunger
oh you are the maker
of waves in my mind.

We dance in the moonlight
a run on the wire
drawing a fine line
a neverending love.

The fever turns slowly
into a fire
drawing a fine line
a neverending love.

Chasing your shadow
moon and the water
field and the reaper
star and the sky.

Chasing your shadow
hammer and heartbeat
clay and new concrete
I follow the signs

It’s you that I long for
it’s you that I hunger
and you are the maker
of waves in my mind.

We dance in the moonlight
a run on the wire
drawing a fine line
a neverending love.

The fever turns slowly
into a fire
drawing a fine line
a neverending love.

We dance in the moonlight
a run on the wire
drawing a fine line
a neverending love.

The fever turns slowly
into a fire
drawing a fine line
a neverending love.

Un día sin tí [Spending My Time]

¿Qué hora es?
bienvenida la mañana
tan sola yo y el cielo tan azul
en mi café
en mi radio y en mi tele
siempre estás tú

Para empezar
me levanto de la cama y voy
vistiéndome así como así
gracias a Dios
tú no puedes verme llorando por tí

Un día sin tí
es una eternidad
es un adiós que duele por dos
solo esperar
la soledad
un día sin tí

Busco tu voz
y el teléfono me lleva al puerto gris
de tu contestador
ayúdame
yo no sé cómo pasarme un día sin tí

Un día sin tí
es una eternidad
es un adiós que duele por dos
solo esperar
la soledad
un día sin tí
es una eternidad
es un adiós que duele por dos
es una pena
un día sin tí

No tengo amigos ni otra cosa que hacer
sólo pienso fuertemente en tí
Oh…
Me niego a ser tu amor a cambio de un día sin tí

Un día sin tí
es una eternidad
es un adiós que duele por dos
solo esperar un día sin tí
un día sin tí
sin tí
es una eternidad
es un adiós que duele por dos
es una pena
un día sin tí
un día sin tí
sin tí

Quiero ser como tú [I Don’t Want to Get Hurt]

Lo mucho que viví te lo debo a tí
no sé por qué
lo que yo sentí
lo sentí por tí
no sé por qué
en mi vida tuve mil elecciones
pero siempre ser como tú

Quiero ser como tú igual que tú
ni mejor ni peor
igualita que tú
quiero ser como tú igual que tú
necesito cruzar tu mar nadando
hasta donde tú estás

Todo lo que ví
lo aprendí de tí
no sé por qué
lo que puedo recordar
me recuerda a tí
no sé por qué
en mi vida tuve mil elecciones
pero siempre ser como tú

Quiero ser como tú igual que tú
ni mejor ni peor
igualita que tú
quiero ser como tú igual que tú
necesito cruzar tu mar nadando
hasta donde tú estás

Quiero ser como tú igual que tú
ni mejor ni peor
igualita que tú

Spanish lyrics: Luis G. Escolar – Jimmy Fun Music

So Far Away

In the coldest time of year
darkness all around my heart
I was alone but didn’t fear to wander
in the light of the stars
in the bright and silent night
winds would knock and disappear
still I felt the feeling near
like the first time you were ever here

You’re so far away
so far away
you left me
you told me you would stay
you never said goodbye and
I’ll keep asking how
oh come unto me now

I have breathed the morning air
I have heard the four winds blow
I was weary but prepared to follow
down this lonely road
in the room where lovers sleep
winds would knock and disappear.
still I felt the music near
like the first time we were ever here

You’re so far away
so far away
you left me
you told me you would stay
you never said goodbye and
I keep wondering why
I keep on wondering how
oh come unto me now

You’re so far away
so far away
you left me
you told me you would stay
you never said goodbye and
I keep wondering why
I keep on wondering how
oh come inside me now

Run To You

Baby sometimes I feel like dying
driving while I’m closing my eyes
moving in and out of hiding
trying to catch some truth in my life
watching your stars and your moonlight
come tumbling down from the sky
take it now!

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna come to you
I wanna find you
in everything that I do
I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna count on you
I’m gonna follow
baby what else can I do?

Sunday morning my town is sleeping
lying all alone in my bed
there’s not a sound I can’t help but listening
wishing I was somewhere else instead
but sometimes they’re too hard to handle
those voices inside my head
listen now!

I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna come to you
I wanna find you
in everything that I do
I’m gonna run to you
I’m gonna count on you
I’m gonna follow
baby what else can I do?

Take a walk inside my dream
a church a lonely road
all the people come and go and come and go

Do it now!

Dance Away

There’s a hidden meaning in everything she says
every close encounter
every kiss
every caress
even the truth has got that bitter taste of a lie
Well, I can read this lips but I can’t read his mind

I can see him dance away now
Oh oh – oh oh oh

He was one of the kind that seems so hard to find
there’s a change of weather
now he leaves me far behind
that I don’t matter to him came as such a surprise
Well, I can read his lips
I thought I red his eyes

I can see him dance away now
Oh oh – oh oh oh

I can see him dance away now
Oh oh – oh oh oh

I Don’t Want To Get Hurt

In everything I see you appear with me
how come? How come?
and everything I do involves you too
we are like one
in my life there has been so many changes
and I don’t want to be left out in the rain

I don’t want to get hurt
I’ve done my time
all I want from you is to tell the truth
I don’t want to get hurt no more this time
I don’t want to go blind
and find it’s falling apart all the time

In the middle of a dream you are there for me
your face your lips
but there’s no way you can tell
cos I hide it really well, so well
in my life there has been loving and lying
and I don’t another reason to cry

I don’t want to get hurt
I’ve done my time
All I want from you is to tell the truth
I don’t want to get hurt no more this time
I don’t want to go blind
and find I’m falling apart one more time


© Gessle – Jimmy Fun Music

Anyone

Anyone who have a love close to this
knows what I’m saying
anyone who wants a dream to come true
knows how I’m feeling

All I can think of is you and me
doing the things I wanna do
all I imagine is heaven on earth
I know it’s you

Anyone who ever kissed in the rain
knows the whole meaning
anyone who ever stood in the light
needs no explaining

But everything more or less appears so meaningless
blue and cold
walking alone through the afternoon traffic
I miss you so

Anyone who felt like I do
anyone who wasn’t ready to fall
anyone who loved like I do
knows it never really happens at all
it’s over when it’s over
what can I do about it
now that it’s over

Everything more or less is looking so meaningless
and fades to grey
lying awake in an ocean of teardrops
I float away

Anyone who ever felt like I do
anyone who wasn’t ready to fall
anyone who loved like I do
knows it never really happens at all
it’s over when it’s over
what can I do about it
now it’s all over

Call Of The Wild

I know her and every notion I get from her I wear inside me
I know her all of the broken leaves of love she leaves behind
Oh – don’t you hide away from the rain
Oh – can you tell me the name of this game?
I got to get thru to you

Behind the door
another wall
a lonely cry
a call of the wild

A dancing daze
an empty face
a crystal high
a call of the wild

And there is something that sweeps the dark
a lover’s dart
the call of a broken heart

Wrapped in the night
behind these eyes
oh hear the cry
the call of the wild

I know her and in my mind I dream of her
how she aches without me
I know her and every heart is a lonely number when she walks by
Oh – can you read the hurt in my eyes?
Oh – don’t you leave without saying goodbye
I got to get thru to you

Behind the door
another wall
a lonely cry
a call of the wild

A dancing daze
an empty face
a crystal high
a call of the wild
and there is something that sweeps the dark
a lover’s dart
the call of a broken heart

Wrapped in the night
behind these eyes
oh hear the cry
the call of the wild

Directamente a tí [Run To You]

Oye; a veces me siento mal;
es una cuestión personal.
Tengo un corazón para nadie;
nadie se lo quiere quedar.
Pero si lo parto contigo
yo vivo de tu mitad.
Tu mitad.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Para encontrarte;
yo puedo llegar hasta el fin.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Aunque no quieras voy a caer sobre tí.
La ciudad parece tan triste;
todo está: en silencio total.
Deseo que algo pase en mi vida
pero nada pasa de verdad.
Voy a buscar la salida;
me marcho de la ciudad.
Hacia tí.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Para encontrarte;
yo puedo llegar hasta el fin.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Aunque no quieras voy a caer sobre tí.
Un paseo por el sol oir tu voz y
mi vida marcha bien. Mucho mejor.
Directamente a tí.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Aunque no quiras;
ah; ah.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Para encontrarte;
yo puedo llegar hasta el fin.
Voy directamente a tí;
directamente a tí.
Aunque no quieras voy
a caer sobre tí.

Una reina detrás de un rey [Queen Of Rain]

Una puerta más
una llave más y todas me llevan a tí
hace tiempo que tu casa abrí
y no te encontré

Yo sentí el perfume del amor
me enamorado de tí
pero tú no

Hay un día para querer y un día para olvidar
una reina va detrás de un rey

Una casa más
una cama más
y todas me llevan a tí
todas las abrí
y las dormí y nunca te encontré

Yo sentí las alas del amor
me he enamorado de tí y tú no

Hay un día para querer y un día para olvidar
una reina va detrás de un rey

Hay un día para ser y un día para recordar
una reina va detrás de un rey

Yo no sé cuántas cosas olvidaré
pero de tí me acordaré

Hay un día para ser y un día para recordar
una reina va detrás de un rey
una reina va detrás de un rey
una reina va detrás de un rey
Mmmm

My World, My Love, My life

Some days are covered in rain
while other days are made for glory
and you are the summer sun
the only one who knows the story

Do you want to talk about it? – I don’t know
Do you want to say some words? – Oh I can’t let go
I’m talking about my world my love my life
everytime I try to close my eyes
you just enter my mind
and you lay yourself down beside me… oh why?

Some streets are covered with sweat
there are no regrets just new connections… oh why?
You are the Summer Son and i’m the one who wants affection

Do you want to talk about it? – I don’t know
Do you want to speak some words? – Oh I can’t let go
I’m talking about my world my love my life
everytime I try to close my eyes
you just run through my head
and you lay yourself down, beside me… oh why?

My world my life…

I’m talking about my world my love my life
everytime… I try to close my eyes
you just enter my mind
and you lay yourself down beside me… oh why…
you just run through my head
and you lay yourself down beside me… oh why…

Sleeping In My Car

I’ll tell you what I’ve done
I’ll tell you what I do
been driving all nite
just to get close to you
baby babe – I’m moving so fast
you’d better come on

The moon is alright
the freeway’s heading south
my heart is going Boom!
there’s a strange taste in my mouth
baby babe – I’m moving real fast
so try to hold on
try to hold on!

Sleeping in my car – I will undress you
sleeping in my car – I will caress you
staying in the back seat of my car making up

So come out tonight
I’ll take you for a ride
this steamy ol’ wagon
the radio is getting wild
baby babe – we’re moving so fast
I try to hang on
try to hang on!

Sleeping in my car – I will undress you
sleeping in my car – I will caress you
staying in the back seat of my car making love – oh yea!

Sleeping in my car – I will possess you
sleeping in my car – certainly bless you
laying in the back seat of my car making up

The night is so pretty and so young
the night is so pretty and so young
so very young…

Sleeping in my car – I will undress you
sleeping in my car – I will caress you
staying in the back seat of my car making love to you

Sleeping in my car – I will possess you
sleeping in my car – certainly bless you
laying in the back seat of my car making up

I will undress you
I will undress you

Cry

Living here without you is not an easy way of life
I spend my time without you
I try to make it all worthwhile
standing in a rainfull coming down from the sky

Why should I cry over you?
Why should I cry cry cry over you?

I keep on thinking about you
I’ve got no private pride to hide
I’ve built my world around you
like a call without reply
my love has lost direction
she’s got the sun in her eyes

Why should I cry over you?
Why should I cry cry cry over you?

Hearing your footsteps
loud on my stairs
a walking…
living without you
Feeling the sweet sweet smell of love in the air
I can feel it
living without you
Kissing the face that I see everywhere
but I’m living without you
living without

You know I’m hotblooded baby…

Cos I’m hotblooded

I need your love so bad

Flash all the lights
I’ll be a camera tonight
I’ll snap the look on your face

“can I call you home?”
“can I call you home?”
“can I call?” – you can call me miss…

It Will Take A Long Long Time

Sunny called
I was in the hall
and made a note
I have to paint the kitchen walls
an angel smiled across the room
all in all it was a lazy afternoon

Then I thought about you
I think it was some sweet song that I heard

Got to get goin’ goin’ ahead
it will take a long, long time
got to go ahead and deal with my life
it has taken such a long time this time

Sunny called
I was in the bath
and heard the rain hit the roof and tiles
real hard (hit the roof real hard/hit the roof)
then I ran through my magazines
a few letters poorly hidden in a jar
(hidden in a jar/oh what a jar!)

And I thought about you
it must have been some old pictures I found

Got to get goin’ goin’ ahead
It will take a long, long time, yea yea
got to go ahead and deal with my life
it has taken such a long time this time

Joy Of A Toy

You wake me up in the middle of the night and burn the cover down
You’re on the phone, in the air, like a record try to spin me round
Oh won’t you move away oh honey get away

The joy of a toy – is it all that you came for?
The joy of a toy got the look of a lie
The joy of a toy put the hurt into action
The joy of a toy – you can kiss this love goodbye

How can you win when you don’t know a thing what love is all about?
Don’t want to fight so get out of my sight I won’t surrender now
It’s independence day oh honey get away

The joy of a toy – is it all that you came for?
The joy of a toy got the look of a lie
The joy of a toy put the hurt into action
The joy of a toy – you can kiss this love goodbye

Hello Goodbye

No sé si es amor [It Must Have Been Love]

Es como amor pero no lo sé
sabe a besos mi almohada
madrugada y él no está
solitaria en mi cama
si él me ama por qué se va

Es amor o no es amor
no lo sé

No sé si es amor pero lo parece
con él soy feliz pero vivo sin él
no sé si es amor pero crece y
crece tan dentro de mi que
se ve a flor de piel

Qué curioso!
Siempre juntos
él con nadie
yo con él
Y se me escapa entre los dedos
medio angel, medio cruel

Eso es amor o no es amor
yo no lo sé
no sé si es amor pero lo parece
y me temo que yo estoy loca por él

No sé si es amor
todo pude ser…
es algo cálido
es algo íntimo

No sé si es amor pero lo parece
con él soy feliz pero vivo sin él
no sé si es amor pero crece y crece
tan dentro de mi
que se ve a flor de piel

No sé si es amor pero lo parece y me temo
que yo estoy loca por él

No sé si es amor
Todo puede ser…
Es algo cálido
es algo íntimo

El día del amor [Perfect Day]

Día gris sin ilusión.
dónde va mi corazón
necesito descansar
este no es un día más

Sola, desolada, esperando al sol
anímate que lo malo pasa
así es la ley, esa es la verdad
porque no hay mal que cien años dure
espera con valor el día del amor

qué más da, cómo te va
a veces bien, a veces mal
nada que hacer, solo esperar y sabe Dios lo que vendrá
sola, desolada, esperando al sol
anímate que lo malo pasa.
así es la ley, esa es la verdad
porque no hay mal que cien años dure
espera con valor el día del amor
Oh oh..oh oh..

Sola, desolada, esperando al sol
anímate que lo malo pasa
así es la ley, esa es la verdad
porque no hay mal que cien años dure
espera con valor el día del amor…

It Takes You No Time To Get Here

Why don’t you take the rest of the day off
you do deserve a break
follow that road
it ain’t long
just cross that silver lake
yea pass the pond
the off-white fence
when you see the mailbox to the left
you’ve made it all right
no way to go wrong
all you do is blow that horn

It takes you no time to get here
just drive out of town today
it takes you no time to get here and when
you’ve arrived you might as well stay
you might as well stay

Why don’t you leave your desk for a short while
you do deserve some time
enjoying the other side of life
you forgot to memorize
stay in the sun
reach for the moon
make a little love in the afternoon
you’re doing all right
no way you go wrong
this is the place where you belong

It takes you no time
no time to get here

Vulnerable

Everywhere I look I see her smile
her absent-minded eyes
and she has kept me wondering for so long
how this thing could go wrong

It seems to me that we are both the same
playing the same game
but as darkness falls this true love falls apart
into a riddle of her heart

She’s so vulnerable
like china in my hands
she’s so vulnerable
and I don’t understand
I could never hurt the one I love
she’s all I’ve got
but she’s so vulnerable
oh so vulnerable

Days like these
no one should be alone
no heart should hide away
her touch is gently conquering my mind
there’s nothing words can say

She’s coloured all the secrets of my soul
I’ve whispered all my dreams
but just as nighttime falls
this vision falls apart
into a riddle of her heart yea

She’s so vulnerable
like china in my hands
she’s so vulnerable
and I don’t understand
I could never hurt someone I love
she’s all I’ve got
but she’s so vulnerable
Oh so vulnerable

Don’t hide your eyes…

Chances

Hear my call
here and everwhere
I’ve been walking the streets in despair
one more fire turns a shade of grey
one more tear is lost in the rain.

And I say that I love you
I say that I need you
baby I leave you a sign of desire
no shadow will haunt you
no heart will desert you
no one will hurt you
no space or no time

Got to got you got to got to take your chances on me
like the river will lead the water to the sea
take on me
take your chances on me
don’t ever let it be
don’t ever let it be

There’s a night when you close your eyes around a dream
that shines like the sun
everyone knows it’s beautiful
tell me why you want to dream it alone

And I say that I love you
I say that I need you
baby I leave you the lines in my palm
No darkness will get you
no heart will desert you
nothing can hurt you or do you any harm

Got to got you got to got to take your chances on me
like the river will lead the water to the sea
take on me
take your chances on me
don’t walk away from me
don’t walk away from me

Knockin’ On Every Door

Hey now honey you got to face the floor
you headed for the heart
but you couldn’t find the door
could you? Could you?
Well I’m standing in the sun
but I’m living in the rain
I got to get a-whirlin’
like a human hurricane over you over you

Now you’re looking like a fox on the run
and you’re faster than a shot from a gun
I’m pointing at you oh you
talking ’bout you hey you

I thought we had love in store
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
babe I’ve seen it all before
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
ain’t no lovin’ you ignore
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
keep keep knock knockin’ on every door
– you keep on knockin’ on every door

Hey now honey time is all you’ve spent
you moved into the bed
but you couldn’t pay the rent
could you?
In the twinkle of an eye you electrify
I got to get a-shootin’ like a rocket in the sky
bye bye goodbye

Now you’re burning like you’re hot on the scene
don’t you love to steal a part of my dream?
I’m looking at you oh you
talking ’bout you yea you

I thought we had love in store
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
babe I’ve seen it all before
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
ain’t no sugar you ignore
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
keep keep knock knockin’ on every door
I thought we used to have love in store
– you keep knock knockin’ on every door
hey babe don’t run around here no more
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
ain’t no sugar you ignore
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
keep keep knock knockin’ on every door
– you keep on knockin’ on every door
you’d better learn your lesson now…

I Was So Lucky

It’s no secret I’ve been waiting
but I didn’t expect this
nothing will remain
nothing stays the same
after you came

It’s no secret I’ve been starving
I never felt anything for years
I sat up all night
just to watch your smile
when you’re sleeping

I was so lucky you came by
and turned a different corner
I could’ve been somewhere else
you could’ve passed by
could’ve passed by

Come on and sail the sea with me
come on let’s go around the world
maybe find a flat
or a canyon house
for the season

I was so lucky you came by
and turned a different corner
it could’ve been someone else
you had in mind
I was so lucky you found me
my rags turned gold and silver
I could’ve been somewhere else
you could’ve passed by
could’ve passed by

What would you make of this, my baby?
The sun through the trees
Is there a better place to be?

I was so lucky you came by
and turned a different corner
it could have been someone else
you had in mind, oh my
I was so lucky you picked me
my trash turned to silver
yea, I could have been somewhere else
you could’ve passed by
could’be passed by

From One Heart To Another

Running running from one heart to another
Running running from one heart to another

Echoes of loneliness
traces from love affairs will never disappear
always come thru

I thought I’d never know the time to see you go
two people turned into one
thinking as one

A hint in the night
a touch of a dream has come to an end
we run from one heart to another again

The rose of our love is witherd and torn
and gone from one heart to another

Sailing away to sea
the ships made of you and me
they pass in the darkest nights
and turn out the lights

And I thought I’d never know the season to see you go
two people twirled into one
being as one

A hint in the night
a touch of a dream has come to an end
we run from one heart to another again

The rose of our love is witherd and torn
and gone from one heart to another

Running running from one heart to another

A hint in the night
a touch of a dream has come to an end
we run from one heart to another again

The rose of our love is witherd and torn
and gone from one heart to another again

A touch of a dream has come to an end
we run from one heart to another again

The rose of our love is witherd and torn
and gone from one heart to another again

Running running from one heart to another
Running running from one heart to another

Cuanto lo siento [I’m Sorry]

Nos vimos los dos
qué sucedió
todo perfecto
todo correcto
un beso tú
un beso yo
dos prometidos desconocidos

Oh! Cuanto lo siento
te quiero

cuanto lo siento
me voy de aquí
cuanto lo siento por tí
por mí

Perdóname debo seguir porque mi vida es una huida
te quiero una vez y nada más
es mi destino
piedra y camino

Oh! Cuanto lo siento
te quiero
si
cuanto lo siento
me voy de aquí
cuanto lo siento por tí
por mí
Oh sí
Yo no quiero pensar prefiero vivir
hay que seguir
seguir
seguir
pide perdón vete de aquí
sigue el camino de tu corazón

Oh! Cuanto lo siento
te quiero
si
cuanto lo siento
me voy de aquí
cuanto lo siento por tí
por mí
cuanto lo siento
te quiero

Cuanto lo siento
me voy de aquí
Cuanto lo siento por tí

por tí
por mí

Cuanto lo siento
por tí
por mí
por tí
por mí

Better Off On Her Own

My girl came home to me
just the other day, acting OK
I was reading alone
in my favourite room, the TV was on
may I be excused
for not telling the truth
‘cos she’s gone, she said
she’s better off on her own

She turned her head
much better off on her own
my girl knocked on the door
to the place I usually refer to as home
I died, shoelace untied
she looked in my eyes, small and surprised
and God closed every gaze
the moon fell into the lake
Boy, she’s gone, a drift
she’s better off on her own

She closed, then she left
much better off on her own

Sitting naked by the windowsill
watching cars upon the hill
am I sleeping?
I was dreaming
for just a moment time stood still
better off on her own
better off on her own
now she’s gone, she said
she’s better of on her own
she turned her head
much better off on her own
she’s gone, she sighed
she’s better of on her own
the tears I cried
much better off on her own
my girl came home to me just the other day

A Thing About You

I pick up the phone
I’m dialing your number
While I pray you’re at home
At home and alone
‘Cuz I can’t function on my own
And I’ll never stop believing…

The reaping is done
You are the one
The radio is on but the sound is all gone
And I wanna walk out in the sun
But lately that’s been very hard to do

I’ve got a thing about you
And I don’t really know what to do
‘Cuz I’ve got a thing about you
Hey you

I pick up the phone
I’m dialing that number
And my heart like a stone
Waits for the tone
Oh I can’t make it on my own
And I’ll never stop believing…

I know what is right and this is so wrong
Alone in my bed, better off on my own
The TV is on but the colors are gone
And lately you’ve been painting my world blue

I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
And I don’t really care what you do
I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
Yeah, you

I’ve got a thing about you
I’ve got a thing about you

Lately you’ve been painting my world blue

I’ve got a thing about you
(I’ve got a thing about you)
And I don’t really know what to do
I’ve got a thing about you
Hoping this story cuts through
(this story cuts through)
Yeah, I’ve got a thing about you
A thing about you

I’ve got a thing about you
I’ve got a thing about you
And I don’t really know what to do

I’ve got a thing about you…

First Girl On The Moon, The

She was the first girl on the moon
She didn’t compromise
When she took off that cold afternoon
Heading for the northern skies.

I told her I could come
That I could come along.

She was the first girl on the moon
I think I was her only friend
She brought her raygun an old harpoon
Just in case of accidents.

I told her I could come
That I could come along
But she didn’t let me come along
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye.

She was the first girl on the moon
Standing tall flag in hand
She looked around humming a tune
The strangest song known to man.

I told her I could come
That I could come along
But she never let me come along
Wave goodbye
Wave goodbye.

Dangerous

You pack your bag
you take control
you’re moving into my heart and into my soul

Get out of my way!
get out of my sight!
I won’t be walking on thin ice
to get through the night

Hey, where’s your work?
what’s your game?
I know your business but I don’t know your name…

Hold on tight
you know she a little bit dangerous
she’s got what it takes to make ends meet
the eyes of a lover that hit like heat
you know she’s a little bit dangerous

You turn around
so hot and dry
you’re hiding under a halo
your mouth is alive
get out of my way!
get out of my sight!
I’m not attracted to go deeper tonight

Hey, what’s your word?
what’s your game?
I know your business but I don’t know your name…

Hold on tight
you know she a little bit dangerous
she’s got what it takes to make ends meet
the eyes of a lover that hit like heat
you know she’s a little bit dangerous
she’s armed and extremely dangerous…

I Remember You

Are you ready? go!

I hear your footsteps like you’re walking
I hear your voice like you’re talking to me
and I can reach every moment
every caress like i’m living a dream
down to the bone
go little darling

Oh I remember you
feels like it was yesterday
I remember you
you’ve got me running back again
you shared my secrets and my laughter
I fell in love with the light in your eyes
and I believed that summer would go on and on
for the rest of my life
down to the bone
go little darling

hey I remember you
feels like it was yesterday
I remember you
you’ve got me running back again
you’ve got me running
I say: na na na na na na na na na na

Stars

You keep on walkin’ on the other side
other side other side
you keep on walkin’ on the other side
other side other side

Wherever you go I’m going with you
shouldn’t you know I’m bound to follow
whatever you say whatever you do
I give you a clue I’m gonna follow

And the stars will show
where the waters flow
where the gardens grow
that’s where I’ll meet you

Why don’t you let me let me come along
na na na na na na
why don’t you open make me come along
na na na na na na

Wherever you go I’m going for you
oh I was truly born to follow
like fire and wood and paper and glue
only a few were born to follow

And the stars will show
where the waters flow
where the gardens grow
that’s where I’ll meet you
and the sun will glow
melting all the snow
knowing all I know
that’s where I’ll meet you

Stars will show
where the waters flow
where the gardens grow
that’s where I’ll meet you
and the sun will glow
melting all the snow
knowing all I know
that’s where I’ll meet you

And the stars will show
every breeze will blow
knowing all I know
that’s where I’ll meet you

Like Lovers Do

Take the line between us and hold it close to you
I want us to get together like lovers do
Let me kiss away your troubles the cold and lonely nights
just take this heart I’m giving and love is on the rise

Like lovers do – want to hold you through the night
Like lovers do – and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do – oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion

It feels just like forever since I made love to you
September days of scarlet April morning dew
So take the love between us and hold it close to you
I want us to get together like lovers do

Like lovers do – want to hold you through the night
Like lovers do – and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do – oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion
Like lovers do – want to hold you through the night
Like lovers do – and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do – oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion
Like lovers do – want to hold you through the night
Like lovers do – and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do – oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion
Like lovers do – want to hold you through the night
Like lovers do – and when I look into your eyes
Like lovers do – oh I’m drowning in an ocean of emotion

Alguien [Anyone]

Alguien para descubrir el amor
para quererse
alguien para compartir el dolor
y perdonarse
toda la vida buscándote
lejos de mi y eras tu
esa persona que sabe querer
y eres tu…
alguien para dar un beso total
y abandonarse
alguien para dar un salto mortal
y no morirse
quien iba decirmelo
tu eres el único, tu amor
mi corazón desde el cielo al suelo
buscándote…

Alguien para conocer la vida
alguien para conservar el calor
alguien para creer en todo
alguien para disfrutar del amor

Después más que nada
estar feliz contigo
mi buen amigo…

Siempre buscándote
ahora sintiéndote
aquí en mi
para los dos un amor
sin testigos
gracias a ti

Alguien para conocer la vida
alguien para conservar el calor
alguien para creer en todo
alguien para disfrutar del amor
después más que nada
estar feliz contigo oh
mi buen amigo, amigo

Alguien para conocer la vida
alguien para conservar el calor
alguien para creer en todo
alguien para disfrutar del amor
después más que nada
estar feliz contigo oh
mi buen amigo, tu eres ese alguien

Happy Together

When she walked up, he walked down
just like the seasons went round and round
she was in love, he wasn’t sure
she wrote some letters he tried to ignore

They could have been so happy together
they could have been so lucky in love
sing la di da
so happy together
they could have run the earth, the sky, the sun

She carried his ring since she left school
he knew she was precious, the prettiest jewel
she wanted a baby, but he wasn’t sure
he couldn’t make up his mind anymore

They could have been so happy together
they could have been so lucky in love
sing la di da
so happy together
they could have run the earth, the stars, the sun

I couldn’t ever hurt no one
if you feel shattered I’m sorry for what I’ve done
we could have been so happy together
we could have been so lucky in love
sing la di da
so happy together
we could have run the earth, the sky, the sun
Yea, we could have been so happy together
we could have been so lucky in love
sing la di da
so happy together

We could have run the universe
could have run the universe
could have run the universe for fun
so happy together
so happy together
so happy together

Centre Of The Heart, The

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited
a little in pain? Tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?

You wear them so well those innocent eyes
You’re puttin’ on a wonderful disguise
I want you so bad. I’m pushing my luck
It feels like being hit by a truck
This is no place special. Don’t know why I came
If someone has a minute won’t you explain

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited
a little in pain? Tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?

na nana nana na
na nana nana na

Being with you; dealing with fire
Oh won’t you come around (come out)
come out (today) and play
(I want you so bad)
Answer my calls
Let’s spend the night within these walls
This is no place special.
Nothing for the saying (Nothing for the saying)
If someone’s got minute; do please explain

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited
a little in vain? Tell me
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?

na nana nana na
na nana nana na

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited
a little in vain? Tell me. Tell me. Tell me. Tell me
What am I gonna do when I get a little excited
a little in vain? Tell me

What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?

na nana nana na
na nana nana na

What am I gonna to do

What am I gonna do when I get a little excited
a little in vain?

The centre of my heart
Yeah yeah yeah

What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?
What am I gonna do now?
What am I gonna say when I find the centre of my heart
is a suburb to the brain?

Every Day

Every day I see him coming
every day he walks on by
life used to be so plain and simple
before he came into my life

Every night I keep on dreaming
every night I take him home
we always go to bed together
I always wake up all alone

Oh it’s strange, so strange
what he’s doing to me
Oh it’s strange so strange
did this ever happen to you
the way it has happened to me
the way it just happened to me

Every day outside my window
always minutes close to eight
I wish he stayed a little longer
but his bus is never late

Every night we’re dancing slowly
I play the music he adores
like Sinatra then we’re talking
all important things for sure

Oh it’s strange so strange
what he’s doing to me
Oh it’s strange so strange
did this ever happen to you
the way it has happened to me

Oh it’s strange so strange
what he’s doing to me
Oh so strange real strange
did this ever happen to you
the way it has happened to me
the way it just happened to me
