  • Until We Sleep

    Dance, to the movement of the stars

    Sing till the walls around us ring

    Pray that it never fades away

    Until we sleep

    Feast, go ahead now, take your fill

    Drink, till the room begins to sway

    Play, and your cares will blow away

    Until we sleep

    Into a deep and dreamless sleep our spirits fall

    And what we sow we cannot reap nor keep at all

    Work, though the work will break your back

    Rest, hope to feel your spirits rise

    But the years, have cut you down to size

    Now go to sleep

    Into a deep and dreamless sleep our spirits fall

    And what we sow we cannot reap nor keep at all

    Some of them standing, some were waiting in the line

    As if there was something that they thought they might find

    Taking some strength from the feelings that always were shared

    And in the background, the eyes that just stared

    What was it brought you out here in the dark?

    Was it your only way of making your mark

    Did you get rid of all the voices in your head?

    Do you now miss them and the things that they said?

    On your own admission you raised up the knife

    And you brought it down ending another man's life

    When it was done you just threw down the blade

    While the red blood spread wider like the anger you made

    I don't want this anger that's burning in me

    It's something from which it's so hard to be free

    But none of the tears that we cry in sorrow or rage

    Can make any difference, or turn back the page

    Love On The Air

    Love on the air

    I keep transmitting but reception is hazy

    I don't get an answer

    Keep sending it faster

    Always knew it was crazy

    To put my love on the air.

    No one will hurt me again

    No one will cause me to lie

    No one will control me by pain

    No one will cause me to cry

    I was looking for love

    In wandering eyes

    Like a ship trying to fix on a beacon

    I learned how to sigh

    On the ribbon and wires

    It's a habit that's so hard to weaken

    No one will ever manipulate

    Make me promise to do or die

    No one can make me hesitate

    What can I lose if they try

    I was looking for love

    Like the very first time

    Didn't realise love never left me

    Contradicted - conspired

    I connived and designed

    Nothing on earth could arrest me.

    Reception is hazy

    When you put your love on the air

    Always knew it was crazy

    To put my love on the air

    But I only communicate

    When I put my love on the air

    You don't have to consummate

    Love on the air

    Blue Light

    She's a blue light, yes it cannot be denied

    She will give you back your pride

    She squeezes, she freezes, she does what she pleases

    But she says she thinks of others, all the time

    You must rise to her defense when she's in danger

    Turn around and you're looking at a stranger

    She steals your savings from under your bed

    And leads you into places even angels fear to tread

    She's a blue light

    She's not amused, when you're trying to upstage her

    So you choose to do nothing to enrage her

    'Cause under her mantle you feel safe from the cold

    And you're safe from the danger of ever growing old

    She's a blue light

    Out Of The Blue

    Out of the blue on the wings of a dove

    A messenger comes, with the beating of drums

    It's not a message of love

    Our childern are born, and we keep them

    They must have the right, to live in the light

    To be safe from the storm

    Out of the blue, with wings on his heels

    A messenger comes, bearing regrets

    For the time that he steals

    But steal it he will, my children's and mine

    Against our desires, against all our needs

    Our blood spilled like wine

    Over and over we call . . . no one hears

    And further and further and further we fall

    And though we pray that we soon will awake

    It is clear, that it's no dream at all

    Our lives are at stake

    I cannot believe, nor even pretend

    That the thunder I hear, will just disappear

    And the nightmare will end

    So hold back the fire, because this music is true

    When all's said and done, the ending will come

    From out of the blue

    All Lovers Are Deranged

    It takes a fool to phone a fool

    When both have said it all

    We make the rule, bemoan the rule

    That neither one should call

    But love that was

    Is love that is

    Demands to always be unchanged

    But then all lovers are deranged.

    We walk away with memories

    And clutch them to our hearts

    We're disembodied entities

    We move in fits and starts

    For burning wine


    And takes all caution in its flames

    All lovers are deranged.

    You know that you don't really fall in love

    Unles you're seventeen

    The break of day will make your spirits fly

    But you can't know what it means

    Unless you're seventeen.

    It takes a fight to start a fight

    And differences remain

    We have the right to think we're right

    We're addicts feigning shame

    For love recalled

    Is love reborn

    We're determined to relive the pain

    But then lovers are deranged.

    You Know I'm Right

    You can scream and shout with all your might

    Dig in your heels and hold on tight

    Either you are wrong or I am right

    You speak the lines you've overheard

    The ring of truth in every word

    You know you're right and that's absurd

    We really seem to have a problem here

    But it is you or me

    Whatever I have going through my mind

    You always have to disagree

    It's just a matter of opinions

    It's not a simple fact

    Why don't you try to see the other side

    Don't turn your back

    Now we survey this silent battleground

    Recriminations all around

    And still no compromise is found

    Now we really have a problem

    And it won't just disappear

    And all the friends we thought we could rely on

    Just want to whisper in my ear

    "It's just a matter of opinions

    You know you keep both in sight

    Why should you bother with the other side

    When you know yours is right."

    Cruise you are making me sing

    Now you have taken me under your wing

    Cruise, we both know you're the best

    How can they say you're like all the rest

    Cruise, we're both travelling so far

    Burning out fast like a shooting star

    Cruise I feel sure that your song will be sung

    And will ring in the ears of everyone

    Saving our children, saving our land

    Protecting us from things we can't understand

    Power and Glory, Justice and Right

    I'm sure that you'll help us to see the light

    And the love that you radiate will keep us warm

    And help us to weather the storm

    Cruise, you have taken me in

    And just when I've got you under my skin

    You start ignoring the fears I have felt

    'Cause you know you can always make my poor heart melt

    Please don't take what I'm saying amiss

    Or misunderstand at a time such as this

    Because if such close friends should ever fall out

    What would there be left worth fighting about

    Power and glory, justice and right

    I'm sure that you'll help them to see the light

    Will you save our children, will you save our land

    And protect us from all the things we can't understand?

    Power and glory and justice for all

    Who will we turn to when your hard rain falls?

    Near The End

    And when you fell you're near the end

    Will you just turn it over and start again

    Is there a stirring in your heart

    As the time comes when we will have to part?

    And when you fell you're near the end

    And there's a stranger where once was a friend

    And you are left without a word

    Only the whispers that you've overheard

    Standing in silence, holding my breath

    Disconnected and dry

    And though I'm certain that there's nothing left

    To hold on to, to give or to try

    Some things never change, no don't ever change

    And I'm feeling the cold

    Thinking that we're getting older and wiser

    When we're just getting old

    And when you feel you're near the end

    And what once burned so bright is growing dim?

    And when you see what's been acheived

    Is there a feeling that you've been deceived?
