Chorus
Go ahead with your dreaminí
For what itís worth
Or youíll be stricken bound
Kickiní Up Dirt
For when itís dark
You never know what the night it may bring

Go ahead with your scheminí
And shop at home
Youíll find treasure
While cookiní up bones
But the knife is sharp
Youíd better watch that you donít cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Go ahead with your dreaminí
For what itís worth
Or youíll be stricken bound
Kickiní Up Dirt
For when itís dark
You never know what the night it may bing

Go ahead with your scheminí
And shop at home
Youíll find treasure
While cookiní up bones
But the knife is sharp
Youíd better watch that you donít cut your hands

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Holy Moses our hearts are screaming
Souls are lifting only dreaming
Weíll be waiting some are praying
For a time when no-oneís cheating

The sunlight rising over the horizon
Just a distant memory the dawn chorus (dawn chorus)
Birds singing, bells ringing
In our hearts 
In our minds

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

And they covered up the sun
Until the birds had flown away
And the fishes in the sea
Had gone to sleep

Waiting For The Day
It was only for a fight
That I asked you to come in
But you brought me tumbliní down
And the walls came caving in
Wonít you help me dry my tears
Help me roll away the years
Then perhaps I will forgive you 
And the hurt will disappear

But in a fit of blind arrogance
You stood up and walked away
If youíd given me half a chance
Iíll be waitiní for the day

For the day that you come back to me
Come on back to me
You come back to me

So forget the long goodbye
You never really tried
Threw the keys down on the table
Youíve got your sense of pride

Then you had to tell the world
Your story must be heard
Slammed the door behind you
Without a single word

But in a fit of blind arrogance
You stood up and walked away

The day that you come back to me
Come on back to me
You come back to me
Come on back to me
You come back to me

No I never had a single word in my head
No I never had a single word

Oh for the day that you come back to me
Come on back to me
You come back to me
Come on back to me

You could be my life long friend
You could be my light of dawn
You could keep me close at hand
You could keep me safe and warm

I will be your fantasy
If you come and stay with me
I will try and give you all
Waiting for the night to fall

You could be the light of day
You could be my life long friend
You could keep me close at hand
Waiting for the day to end

I will be your fantasy
If you come and stay with me
I will try and give you all
Waiting for the night to fall

Joan
Power generation
You live up your life and it feels like fire, woah-oh
Suspended in animation
A trick of the light and it drives you higher, woah-oh

Blind vision blind faith
You really can be sold
If you dare to disagree

Itís just not within the scheme of things
To give up your life so easily
Thatís not the way youíre meant to be
What a waste of time of energy
Itís just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily, easily (Iíll be there)

Psychic celebration
Look up in the stars and see Venus rising
Rapture, fascination
You live for the night and your own desire

Blind vision blind faith
You really canít rely
On what they tell you for effect

Itís just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
Thatís not the way youíre meant to be (I do care)
What a waste of time of energy
Itís just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
Thatís not the way youíre meant to be (Iíll be there)
What a waste of time of energy

Itís just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
Thatís not the way youíre meant to be (I do care)
What a waste of time of energy
Itís just not within the scheme of things (live your life)
To give up your life so easily
Thatís not the way youíre meant to be (Iíll be there)
What a waste of time of energy

Energy, energy
Oh easy easy easy energy

Breath Of Life
Never had a point of view
ĎCause my mind was always someone elseís mid
I never had to tell a lie
ĎCause I left the choices up to them
Donít know why but I did

Oh I want life
Life wants me
To breathe in itís love

Take me I'm yours
Now Iím cominí up for air
Iím gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then Iíll be comin' back for more

I never had to call the tune
ĎCause I always drifted with the tide of the moon
I would go out every night
Lookiní for someone to treat me right
Not a chance, not a hope in this world (world)

Oh I want life
Life wants me
To breathe in itís love

Take me I'm yours
Now Iím cominí up for air
Iím gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then Iíll be comin' back for more

Take me I'm yours
Now Iím cominí up for air
Iím gonna live my time
For the rest of my life
Then Iíll be comin' back for more

Am I Right?
Wanderiní through the back roads
And the rain comes rushiní down
To resolve your love for this man
In his twenties
Am I right? Am I wrong? Or am I just dreaming?

Climbing up the backstairs
Thereís a chill wind in the air
I wrap up from the cold
Pull the blinds in the window
Who was there? Was it you? Or am I just dreaming?

Look at all the lonely people
Walking miles around the town
I can see the old cathedral
But I have to play it down
Boats along the river
Setting up their sails
And life carries on as normal
Although youíre not around

Waiting at the bus stop
Laughing off the rain
Shaking their umbrellas
ĎTill it starts again
Flowers in the water
Floating off downstream
Paper in the gutter
Blowing in the breeze

Am I right? Am I wrong? Or am I just dreaming?

Love To Hate You
Woah Oh Oh Oh! (x8)

Iím crazy flowing over with ideas
A thousand ways to woo a love so sincere
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine
For every Casanova that appears
My sense of hesitation disappears
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didnít come with any satisfaction guarantee
So Iíll return them to the sender and the note attached will read
How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

Oh, you really still expect me to believe
Every single letter I receive
Sorry you what a shameful situation
Sending shivers up and down my spine
I like to read a murder mystery
I like to know the killer isnít me
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers make me quiver
Feel it sliver up and down my spine

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didnít come with any satisfaction guarantee
So Iíll return them to the sender and the note attached will read
How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didnít come with any satisfaction guarantee
So Iíll return them to the sender and the note attached will read
How I love to hate you
I love to hate you

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didnít come with any satisfaction guarantee
So Iíll return them to the sender and the note attached will read
How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

Turns The Love To Anger

Lest we forget
The speed at which the world is turning
Careering through the space and time
On her fatalistic journey

It scares me half to death
That we tear ourselves apart
A war of love or religion
Close your eyes to the screaming

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession
Turns the love to anger

East calling west
Falling onto stony ground
We are lost in our vision
We are primitive and fearless

We send our message of confusion
Across the great divide
With our eyes full of wonder
Still the world goes spinning by

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession
Turns the love to anger

Love is where the dream should lie
Itís not for us to reason why
Or to ponder over strategy
So come with us and take a ride
Somewhere in the deep blue sky
Before itís too late, itís too late, itís too late

Hope you find it baby what youíre lookiní for
Doesnít really matter if youíre rich or poor
ĎCause youíve had your day
Yes youíve had your day

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession
Turns the love to anger

Now are we pleased?
How are we free?
See how this obsession
Turns the love to anger

Siren Song

Ever faithful I endure
To listen to the sound of the siren song
Ragged whispers of imprisoned sisters
Cutting through real life drawing me near

The colour of the pure in soul
Like water shall fill the cloudless sky

Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
Wrap yourself up in every facet of emotion

Hearts that cry diamond tears
Spirits that walk for a thousand years
Hear them calling
On their darkest morning
Pulling me under my thoughts disappear

The colour of the pure in soul
Like water shall fill the cloudless sky

Try to feel the splendour of it all
Embrace the honesty of nightfall
Try to feel the anguish of it all
Wrap yourself up in every facet of emotion

Can you feel love?
Can you feel joy?
Can you feel pain?

Perfect Stranger

Hell I gave up my time
For for a no good affair
Youíd think Iíd learned by now
To be taken in by a perfect stranger
Would that I had the know how

Well still fool me
For kidding myself
That's the way it should be
Maybe I should grow up
Would I feel confined to the same space?
Or would I feel that I talked myself into a corner

So long, sheís no friend of mine
Sheís false and unkind
Sheís indestructible
No place Iíd rather be than in the ring with her
Weíd go twenty rounds

Well still fool me
For kidding myself
That's the way it should be
Maybe I should grow up
Would I feel confined to the same space?
Or would I feel that I talked myself into a corner

I see the sky move above me
But I just canít take control
What a sweet sensation
Woah-woah-woah!
Ah-ha! Love sweet sweet love

Hell I gave up my time
For for a no good affair
Youíd think Iíd learned by now
To be taken in by a perfect stranger
Would that I had the know how

Well still fool me
For kidding myself
That's the way it should be
Maybe I should grow up
Would I feel confined to the same space?
Or would I feel that I talked myself into a corner

Home
I ainít never going home
Cause Iím having a good time
I ainít never going home
ĎCause my time is come

Iíll wait for the winter
To lie at my door
White stretches out before me
Leads me to the hall

White circles play within my mind
Ices over and freezes life
Time will come, time will come, time will fall
Bringing the world to its feet
Bringing the world to its feet

I ainít never turning back
ĎCause Iíve come this far
and Iím lost within my tracks
I shall follow the North Star

Iíll wait Ďtill the springtime
Is breathing at my door
The wilderness before me
Heeds the lions roar

White circles play within my mind
Ices over and freezes life
Time will come, time will come, time will fall
Bringing the world to its feet
Bringing the world to her hands and her knees

Iíll wait till the winter
Is lying at my door
Time stretches out before me
A stones throw from the door

White circles play within my mind
Ices over and freezes life
Time will come, time will come, time will fall
Bringing the world to its feet
Bringing the world to her hands and her feet

Bringing the world to its feet
