Better Days


What are you hiding from
You are part of the sum
What has been going on
Your confidence has gone

You have seen better days
You have lived better ways

What are you waiting for
Answers that question more
Unexpected they will come
Are you expecting some

You have seen better days
You have lived better ways

Only time will tell
What will come of you
Only crime could sell
What you’re trying to

Where are you heading to
What plans will you pull through
With trouble in the wings
Will you risk anything

You have seen better days
You have lived better ways


Black day


Celebrate the fact
That we’ve see the back
Of another black day

Black day
Black day

I want to take you in my arms
Forgeting all I couldn’t do today

Black day
Black day


Dangerous


The things you do
Aren’t good for my health
The moves you make
You make for yourself
The means you use
Aren’t meant to confuse
Although they do
They’re the one’s that I would choose

I wouldn’t want it any other way
You wouldn’t let me any way

Dangerous
The way you leave me wanting more
Dangerous
That’s what I want you for
Dangerous
When I am in your arms
Dangerous
Know I won’t come to harm

The lies you tell
Aren’t meant to deceive
They’re not there
For me to believe
I’ve heard
Your vicious words
You know by now
It takes alot to see me hurt

I couldn’t take it any other way
But there’s a price I have to pay


Death's Door


Well I’m knocking on Death’s door
Will I take my rest
Among the blessed?

Mother are you waiting?
Father are you pacing?
I’m coming home

I’m knocking on Death’s door
Will I take my rest
In my sunday best?

Mother are you anxious?
Father are you gracious?
I’m coming home

I’ve been away too long
For so long it was strong
I’ve been away too long
I know that it was wrong
But I’m coming home

Well I’m knocking on Death’s door
Will I take my rest?
Have I passed the test?

Mother are you praying?
Father I’m saying
I’m coming home


Dirt


Ooh, I’ve been dirt
And I don’t care
Ooh, I’ve been dirt
And I don’t care
ĎCause Iím burning inside
I’m just a yearning inside
And I’m the fire o’ life
Ooh, I’ve been hurt
And I don’t care
Ooh, I’ve been hurt
And I don’t care
ĎCause Iím burning inside
I’m just a dreaming this life
And do you feel it?
Said do you feel it when you touch me?
Said do you feel it when you touch me?
There’s a fire Well, itís a fire It was just a burning
Yeah, alright
Ooh! Burning inside
Burning Just a dreaming
Just a dreaming
It was just a dreaming
It was just a dreaming
Play it for me, babe, with love !


Fools


Don’t know the reason why I
Think I’ve been here before
This place seems so familiar
But then I can’t be sure
Here comes that time again when
You’ll walk right out the door
Don’t tell me secrets anymore

And fools don’t run away
You’ll be followed another day
And all the chances that fall your way
Are in the fire on your dying day

So call me now and tell me that you’re home

Can’t see the sense in crying
There’s too many tears to fall
My thoughts are multiplying
So I’ll try to save them all

So call me now and tell me that you’re home

And fools don’t run away


Free


I will never be free
I shall never be released
From the chains that bind me
They torture and blind me
And keep me from peace

Oh, what heartache
Oh, what heartbreak
Following me
Calling to me

I will never be free
I shall never be released
From the chains that bind me
They torture and blind me
And keep me from peace

I will never be free
I will never be laid to rest
Sisters and brothers
I’ll never recover
From this tenderness

See what love breaks
Hear what love sings
Sad melodies
Enticing me

I will never be free
I shall never be released
From the chains that bind me
They torture and blind me
And keep me from peace

I will never be free
I will never be laid to rest
Sisters and brothers
I’ll never recover
From this tenderness


Happiest Girl


Happiest girl I ever knew
Happiest girl I ever knew

Wanted to feel the joy
Flow between our lips
Wanted to feel the joy
Flow between our hips

Happiest girl I ever knew
Why do you smile the smile you do

Happiest girl I ever knew
Happiest girl I ever knew

Wanted to feel the joy
Pass between our eyes
Wanted to feel the joy
Pass between our thighs

And I would have to pinch her
Just to see that she was real
Just to watch the smile fade away
See the pain she’d feel

Happiest girl I ever knew
Happiest girl I ever knew

Wanted to feel her joy
Feel it deep within
Wanted to feel her joy
Penetrate my skin

Happiest girl I ever knew
Why do you smile the smile you do


I Sometimes Wish I Was Dead


New sound all around
You can hear it too
Get it hot, never stop
Just for me and you
Playing on my radio
And saying that you had to go

New day, turn away
Wipe away the tear
New night, feel alright
Knowing that you’re here
Dancing with you all the time
And don’t you think that it’s a crime

Back street, never meet
Never say goodbye
I know where you go
But I don’t know why
You say that it’s from above
And I say “this is modern love?”


Ice Machine


Running through my head secretly
The shouts of the boys in the factory
I ring you on the telephone silently
Like blood, like wine in the darkroom scene

The darkroom scene, darkroom scene

A letter, once composed
Seven years long and as tall as a tree
Reading on the wall
Emissions, efficiency

Efficiency, efficiency

Resurrect, as a feeling, on my window
Of a past reunion

Resurrect as a feeling on my window
Of a past reunion
Vision of a picture like the city
And the air we breathe

The air we breathe, air we breathe

She stood beside me once again
I knew her face
We met before in the street
Recalling all the children dancing at our feet

The dancing feet, dancing feet


In Your Memory


Put up the barriers shut down your senses
Cover up with all of your pretences
See no evil, your eyes are blunted
We are the hunters, we are the hunted

Place it in your memory
Leave it in your past
But don’t forget

Taking a tumble, I’m taking a drop
Sometimes I stumble when my mind’s made up
Reaction levels seem strangely muted
Ordinary acts of fun have been diluted

Place it in your memory
Leave it in your past
But don’t forget


It's Called A Heart


There’s something beating here
Inside my body and it’s called a heart
You know how easy it is
To tear it apart
If I lend it to you
Will you keep it safe
Yes I’ll lend it to you
If you treat it tenderly
There’s something beating here
Inside my body and it’s called a heart

There’s a sun shining in the sky
But that’s not the reason why
I’m feeling warm inside
The answer isn’t classified
It’s my heart
From the moment I started
I tried to be good, I did
Yes I tried my best
And more or less
I spoke from my heart

There’s a lot to be learned
And you learn when you’re heart gets burned

Hearts could never be owned
Hearts only come on loan
If I want it back
I will take it back
I’ll take my heart
But I will try my best
And more or less
I will speak from my heart
Yes I will speak from my heart
Speak from my heart


Martyr


I’ve been a martyr for love
And I will die in the flames
As I draw my last breath
As I’m closing on death
I will call out your name

I’ve been a martyr for love
Nailed up on the cross
While you’re having your fun
As the damage is done
I’m assessing the cost

I knew what I was letting myself in for
I knew that I could never even the score

I’ve been a martyr for love
I need to be by your side
I have knelt at your feet
I have felt your deceit
Couldn’t leave if I tried

I’ve been a martyr for love
Tortured every hour
From the day I was born
I’ve been moved like a pawn
By the greatest of powers

I knew that I would have to suffer in vain
Aware that I would never outgrow the pain

I’ve been a martyr for love…


My Joy


My joy, the air that I breathe
My joy, in God I believe
You move me

My joy, the blood in my veins
My joy, flows in your name
You move me

I’m not a mountain, no
You move me

My joy, heavenly bliss
My joy, the pleasure I miss
You move me

I’m not a mountain, no
You move me


Newborn


Newborn
For the first time
I’m not born again
I have never lived at all
I’ve opened up my eyes
Now I hear the world talking
Opened up my eyes
I’ve just started walking
I’ve just started walking

I’ve got someone who cares for me
Someone who believes in me
I’ve got someone understanding me
Someone crying over me
For all the right reasons
For all the right reasons

Newborn
For the first time
I’m not born again
I have never lived at all
I’ve opened up my eyes
Now I hear the world talking
Opened up my eyes
I’ve just started walking
I’ve just started walking

I’ve got someone seeing grace in me
Someone respecting me
I’ve got someone who’s there for me
Someone saying prayers for me
For all the right reasons
For all the right reasons


Only When I Lose Myself


It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
Then I find myself
I find myself
It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
Then I find myself
I find myself

Something beautiful is happening inside for me
Something sensual, it’s full of fire and mystery
I feel hypnotized, I feel paralized
I have found heaven

There’s a thousand reasons
Why I should not spent my time with you
For every reason not to be here I can think of two
Keep me hanging on
Feeling nothing’s wrong
Inside your heaven

It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
Then I find myself
I find myself
It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
Then I find myself
I find myself

I can feel the emptiness inside me fade and disappear
There’s a feeling of content that now you are here
I feel satisfied
I belong inside
Your velvet heaven

Did I need to sell my soul
For pleasure like this
Did I have to lose control
To treasure your kiss
Did I need to place my heart
In the palm of your hand
Before I could even start
To understand

It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
Then I find myself
I find myself
It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
That I find my life
I find myself
It’s only when I lose myself in someone else
Then I find myself
I find myself


Route 66


Well if you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that’s the best
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it winds from Chicago to LA
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route 66

Well it goes to St. Louis, down to Missouri
Oklahoma City looks oh, so pretty
You’ll see Amarillo, Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona, don’t forget Wynonna
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino

If you get hip to this kind of trip
I think I’ll take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66


Sea Of Sin


Sea of Sin I’m swimming in and I’m taking a dive
My mind’s in need so my body feeds and it keeps me alive
It gets better and better as it gets wetter and wetter
Sea of Sin know where you’ve been but I don’t care

Sea of Sin through thick and thin for better or worse
My mind’s in need so my body feeds and it quenches my thirst
You look cheaper and cheaper as we sink deeper and deeper
Sea of Sin know where you’ve been ‘cause I’ve been there

Here under God’s sky
His watchful eye
And all of the lies
My consolation prize

Sea of Sin my second skin my home from home
When I’m in doubt my hands reach out and I’m never alone
It gets wetter and wetter as it gets better and better
Sea of Sin know where you’ve been and I’m prepared

Sea of Sin know where you’ve been yes I’m aware
Sea of Sin know where you’ve been ‘cause I’ve been there
Sea of Sin know where you’ve been and I don’t care
Sea of Sin know where you’ve been and I don’t care


Set Me Free (Remotivate Me)


Set me free
Set me free

Remotivate me
Set me burning
After years in deep freeze
My body is yearning
For a new lease of life
And a little spice
Set me free
Remotivate me

Give me a reason
To scream and shout
Give me something
To get excited about
When everything is looking dull
I’m sure it isn’t impossible to
Set me free
Remotivate me

Remotivate me
Set me burning
After years in deep freeze
My body is yearning
For a new lease of life
And a little spice
Set me free
Remotivate me

Don’t think I’m impatient
Because I’m willing to wait
But something must must happen
Before it gets too late
It could be my imagination
But wasn’t there more than this dull sensation
Set me free
Remotivate me


Shake The Disease


I’m not going down on my knees
Begging you to adore me
Can’t you see it’s misery
And torture for me
When I’m misunderstood
Try as hard as you can
I’ve tried as hard as I could
To make you see
How important it is for me

Here is a plea
From my heart to you
Nobody knows me
As well as you do
You know how hard it is for me
To shake the disease
That takes a hold of my tongue
In situations like these

Understand me

Some people have to be
Permanently together
Lovers devoted
To each other forever
Now, I’ve got things to do
And I’ve said before
That I know you have too
When I’m not there
In spirit I’ll be there


Shout


She was silent trying to be
Like the girl who acted on the TV
Always knowing when to say
Wishing for a moment so that they could see

Staring in the night
A picture in my room
And I think that she knew her lines

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We’ve got to get it right
We’ve got to understand

Carefully watching waiting as I
Stood upon the back streets and we start to play
I was screaming louder as the
Curtains fall between us in a twisted way

Staring in the night
A picture in my room
And I think that she knew her lines

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We’ve got to get it right
We’ve got to understand

Placing all the questions in the
Minutes of a game we won so long ago
Dangerous and beautiful the
Radio transmission that I have to know

You could never run
You could never stay
And I think you belong to me

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We’ve got to get it right
We’ve got to understand


Surrender


Laying on your holy bed
By the hallowed door
Feeling like an infidel
Not worthy of your call

Tempted by your innocence
Beckoned to my fate
I won’t face the consequence
I wouldn’t hesitate

I’m a man of flesh and bone
Rapture Rushing through my veins
Passion Flaming In my heart
Heavenly surrender once again (Yeah)

Shackled like an animal
Chained to my desires
Just another sacrifice
To love’s eternal fight

Tame me with your tenderness
And break my brittle heart
Easily and elegantly
Tear my world apart

I’m a man of flesh and bone
Rapture Rushing through my veins
Passion Flaming In my heart
Heavenly surrender once again (Yeah)

We’re living in a world full of illusion
Everything is so unreal
My mind is in a state of confusion
But I can’t deny the way I feel

I’m a man of flesh and bone
Rapture Rushing through my veins (Yeah)
