In The Air Tonight

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment, all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

Well, I remember...I remember don't worry
How could I ever forget, it's the first time, it's the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don't fool me
The hurt doesn't show, but the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you or me

(DRUMS)

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord...


This Must Be Love


It must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love
Oh...this must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love

Well I wait in every day, just in case,
You decide to call
And I can hardly wait
'Cos I never thought time could pass so slowly

It must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love
Oh...this must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love

Happiness is something I never thought I'd feel again, but now I know...oh
It's you that I've been looking for
And day by day, more and more
Well, I know what you think (you've heard it before)
Don't tell me I know
But this feeling inside my heart,
You know I'm never letting go
'Cos I think that...

It must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love
Oh...this must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love

Words can only say so much
It's hard to express
The things you do to me
Oh...You're everything I could ever dreamed you would be

This must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love
Oh this must be love, I'm feeling
This must be love...


Behind The Lines

I held the book so tightly in my hands,
I saw your picture, heard you call my name
It was strange, I could not look away
I had to be there, I wanted to go

You gave me no reason
You gave me no warning
But I was with you,
By your side
Give me the strength, so I can help you
And I can be strong now, they don't frighten me

It's written in the book
The sun is hotter than before
But inside it's cold, I wonder why
But if the fire within your heart can beat the storm
Well I believe we can make it right

It's time now
To show our feelings
Looking through you
Your heart's empty
Whatever happened to you, you can't change it,
Nowhere to run to, please, oh please don't let me down

But wait a minute I don't understand
It's getting stronger, hold my hand
Don't want to leave you I don't want to go
But I'm a' losing all control
Can't you see me I'm slipping away
I can only stay if you've the will to keep me here

Oh Lord
It's written in the book
I held the book so tightly in my hands
Saw your picture, heard you call my name
Oh, and even though we never, never touched
I keep waiting for you just the same

Lalalala (repeat and fade away)


The Roof Is Leaking

The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
Kids are crying 'cos the sheets are so cold
I woke this morning found my hands were frozen
I've tried to fix the fire, but you know the damn thing's too old
It's been months now, since we heard from our Mary,
I wonder if she ever made the coast
She and her young man, they both moved out there
But I sure hope they write, just to let us know

And me, I'm getting stronger by the minute
My wife's expecting, but I hope she can wait
'Cos this winter looks like it's gonna be another bad one
But Spring'll soon be here,
Oh...But I hope it's not late

Ma and Pa lived here and theirs before them
They tried their hardest to make it a home
Seems so long now since they passed over
Hope my children'll try to make it their own
The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
The kids are crying, 'cos the sheets are so cold
I woke this morning and my hands were frozen
Oh...I've tried to fix the fire, but you know the damn thing's too old

But me, Oh...I'm getting stronger by the minute
My wife's expecting, but I hope she can wait
'Cos this winter looks like it's gonna be another bad one
But Spring'll soon be here,
Oh...God I hope it's not late

I Missed Again

So you finally came right out and said it girl
What took you so long
It was in your eyes, that look's been there for far too long
I'm waiting in line
Would you say if I was wasting my time

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again...oho
I think about it from time to time
When I'm lonely and on my own
I try to forget and yet, still rush to the telephone
But I'm waiting in line
But would you say if I was wasting my time

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oho
Or did I miss again ohohoho
I think I missed again oho

Well, it feels like something you want so bad
And then you think you've got it, but it's something you already had
And you can feel it all around you, but it's something you just can't touch
Ohoho
And I feel it coming at me
Yes, I can feel it coming at me

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oho
Or did I miss again ohohoho
I think I missed again oho
Seems I'm waiting in line, but would you say if I was wasting my time
Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oho

(repeat and fade)


You Know What I Mean

Just as I thought I'd make it
You walk back into my life
Just like you never left
Just as I'd learned to be lonely
You call up to tell me
You're not sure if you're ready
Oh..But ready or not, you'll take what you've got and leave

Oh...Leave me alone with my heart
Putting the pieces back together again
Just leave, oh...leave me alone with my dreams
I can do without you, know what I mean...

I wish I could write a love song,
To show you the way I feel
Seems you don't like to listen
Oh but like it or not, you take what you've got and leave

Leave me alone with my heart
It's broken in two and I'm not thinking too straight
Just leave, leave me alone with my dreams
You've taken everything else, you know what I mean...


Thunder And Lightning

I never thought I'd ever get tired of playing games
But I've been holding back for too long
Now the time has come to get it right
Now's the time to show them all that they're wrong

'Cos they said thunder and they said lightning
It would never strike twice
Oh but if that's true then, why can't you tell me
How come this feels so nice, Oh it feels alright
I never ever did believe in guiding lights
'Cos what you didn't hold, slipped away
Oh...but there's a feeling deep down in my shoes
'Cos things look like they're going my way

Ohoo...they say thunder and they say lightning
It would never strike twice
Oh but if that's true, why can't you tell me
How come this feels so nice, so nice, oh it feels alright
I never ever did believe in a second chance
You get, just one crack of the whip and that's all
But if you played the game, you got treated right
Oh...but I'm not playing the game, no more

'Cos they say thunder and they say lightning
It would never strike twice
Oh but if that's true, why can't you tell me
How come this feels so nice, oh it feels alright


I'm Not Moving

If you feel it do it
You don't need a reason
For all you know it could be good for you
To show your feelings
Don't just leave them
Do the things you believe in, 'cos it's alright
Don't worry turn around, I will still be here

I'm not moving...no really
You just try and push me out
No, I'm not moving...no really
No, I'm not going anywhere tonight

If you think it, say it
Oh...no-one will stop you
Don't keep quiet, just 'cos you think you ought to
Feel free to shout it loud, speak your mind, spit it out

'Cos I'm not moving...no really
You just try and push me out
No I'm not moving I can sit it out
No really, there's no hurry
So don't worry turn around, I will still be here

If it hurts don't do it
'Cos no-one can take you make you drink
And no-one can tell you what you think
Remember if your spirit starts to sink
Don't worry turn around, I will still be here


If Leaving Me Is Easy

I read all the letters, I read each word that you've sent to me
And though it's past now, and your words start to fade
All the memories I had, still remain

I've kept all the pictures, but I hide my feelings so no-one knows
Oh sure, my friends all come round, but I'm in a crowd on my own
It's 'cos you're gone now, but your heart, still remains
And it'll be here if you come again

You see, I'd heard the rumours, I knew before you let me know
But I didn't believe it, not you
No you would not let me go
Seems I wasn't wrong, but I love, I love you the same
And that's the one thing that you can't take away

...but just remember...

If leaving me is easy
And you know coming back is harder
If leaving me is easy
And you know coming back is harder

If leaving me is easy...


Tomorrow Never Knows

Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream
It is not dying, It is not dying.

Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void
It is shining, oh it is shining.

That you may see the meaning of within
It is beginning, oh it is beginning.

That love is all and love is ev'ryone
It is knowing, oh it is knowing.

And ignorance and hate may mourn the dead
It is believing, oh it is believing.

So play the game, existence to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning.

Of the beginning, of the beginning...

...

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I dreamed of once in a lullaby
