Speak & Spell



New Life


I stand still stepping on the shady streets
And I watch that man to a stranger
You think you only know me when you turn on the light
Now the room is lit with danger

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

Transition to another place
So the time will pass more slowly
Features fuse and your shadow’s red
Like a film I’ve seen now show me

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

Your face is hidden and we’re out of sight
And the road just leads to nowhere
The stranger in the door is the same as before
So the question answer’s nowhere

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

I stand still stepping on the shady streets
And I watch that man to a stranger
Think you only know me when you turn on the light
Now the room is lit, red danger

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life


Puppets


Get the feeling, head is reeling
You think you’re in control but you don’t know me babe
I can move you, I can soothe you
I can take you places in a different way

And I don’t think you understand
What I’m trying to say
I’ll be your operator baby
I’m in control

Watch your action, close reaction
And everything you’re thinking babe inside your head
Conversation, my creation
Nothing that you do you do unless I said

And you don’t know the consequences
Of the things you say
I’ll be your operator baby
I’m in control

All the things you tried to do babe
And all the words we’ve said before
Are only part of what I started baby
And you can’t stop me anymore

Get the feeling, head is reeling
You think you’re in control but you don’t know me babe
I can move you, I can soothe you
I can take you places in a different way

And I don’t think you understand
What I’m trying to say
I’ll be your operator baby
I’m in control


Dreaming Of Me


Light switch, man switch
Film was broken only then
All the night, fused tomorrow
Dancing with a distant friend

Filming and dreaming, I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming, dreaming of me

So we left, understanding
Clean cut, so we’re sounding fast
Talked of saddness, I talked of war
I laughed and climbed the rising calm

Filming and dreaming, I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming, dreaming of me

Quickly, I remember
Fused and saw a face before
Timing reason, understanding
Like association whore

Filming and dreaming, I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming, dreaming of me

Dreaming of me (Oooh, la la la …)
Just dreaming of me
It’s only me
Just me


Boys Say Go


Boys say go!
Boys say go!
Boys say go!
Boys say go!

You don’t understand
This is a demand
And I think that I have to show you

Try to look inside
Take me for a ride
In the day and the night get to know you

Boys meet boys get together
Boys meet boys it’s forever
Don’t say no
Boys say go

I can run away
If you never stay
And the rain and the pain and the sorrow

I’m not very sure
When you close the door
If the end is the same as tomorrow

Boys meet boys get together
Boys meet boys it’s forever
Don’t say no
Boys say go

You don’t understand
This is a demand
And I think that I have to show you

Try to look inside
Take me for a ride
In the day and the night get to know you

Boys meet boys get together
Boys meet boys it’s forever
Don’t say no
Boys say go


No Disco


I saw you in the picture
I saw you play the part
This ain’t nodisco

There’s a thousand watts in you
You take this too far
This ain’t nodisco

Sometimes when I wonder if you’re taking a chance
This ain’t nodisco and you know how to dance

Move me disco, baby don’t you let go
This ain’t nodisco

Part one act one
Everyone pretend
This ain’t nodisco

This is more a story
And we’re reaching the end
This ain’t nodisco

Always makes me happy when you’re taking a chance
This ain’t nodisco and you know how to dance

Move me disco, baby don’t you let go
This ain’t nodisco

I saw you in the picture
I saw you play the part
This ain’t nodisco

There’s a thousand watts in you
You take this too far
This ain’t nodisco

Sometimes when I wonder if you’re taking a chance
This ain’t nodisco and you know how to dance

Move me disco, baby don’t you let go
Move me disco, baby don’t you let go
Move me disco, baby don’t you let go
This ain’t nodisco


What's Your Name


Sometimes watch you walk the street at midnight
Sometimes I can feel you in the air
Looking good knew you would
All the time I understood

Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
You’re so pretty

Everybody seems to look your way now
(Everybody seems to look your way)
Everybody wants to know your name
(Hey, hey, what’s your name)
Feeling bright just tonight
Hear them say you’re out of sight

Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
You’re so pretty

Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
You’re so pretty

All the boys we got to get together
All the boys together we can stand
We can go never know
All the things we need to show

Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
You’re so pretty

Hey you’re such a pretty boy (you’re so pretty)
Hey you’re such a pretty boy (you’re so pretty)
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
You’re so pretty (P-R-E, double-T-Y)

Hey you’re such a pretty boy
Hey you’re such a pretty boy
You’re so pretty


Photographic


A white house, a white room
The program of today
Lights on, switch on
Your eyes are far away

The map represents you
And the tape is your voice
Follow all along you
Till you recognize the choice

I take pictures
Photographic pictures

Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room

I said I’d write a letter
But I never got the time
And looking to the day
I mesmerize the light

The years I spend just thinking
Of a moment we both knew
A second boss looking into
It seems it can’t be true

I take pictures
Photographic pictures

Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room


Tora! Tora! Tora!


They were raining from the sky
Exploding in my heart
Is this a love in disguise
Or just a form of modern art

From the skies you can almost hear their cry
Tora! Tora! Tora!
In the town they were going down
Tora! Tora! Tora!

I had a nightmare only yesterday
You played a skeleton
You took my love then died that day
I played an American

From the skies you can almost hear them cry
Tora! Tora! Tora!
In the town they were going down
Tora! Tora! Tora!

I played an American
I played an American


Any Second Now


She remembered all the shadows and the doubts
The same film

Vivid pictures like a wall that’s standing empty
And the night so still

Such a small affair, a relapse
Someone closing like the nightclub door

Here again and when you speak
I watch you move away
And seem so sure

She is hoping to forget
And the moment almost slips away

When the colours move apart
And I wonder if you want to stay

And I need to change you
Like the words I’m reading
Don’t you understand

This the warning and the message
I remember as you touch my hand


Just Can't Get Enough


When I’m with you baby, I go out of my head
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
All the things you do to me and everything you said
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

We slip and slide as we fall in love
And I just can’t seem to get enough

We walk together, we’re walking down the street
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
Every time I think of you I know we have to meet
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

It’s getting hotter, it’s our burning love
And I just can’t seem to get enough

And when it rains, you’re shining down for me
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough
Just like a rainbow you know you set me free
And I just can’t get enough, I just can’t get enough

You’re like an angel and you give me your love
And I just can’t seem to get enough
