Solsbury Hill
Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
Just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
"Son," he said "Grab your things
I've come to take you home"

To keepin' silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Though my life was in a rut
"Till I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" he said "Grab your things
I've come to take you home"

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things
they've come to take me home"

Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime
Change your heart
Look around you
Change your heart
It will astound you
I need your lovin'
Like the sunshine

Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime

Change your heart
Look around you
Change your heart
Will astound you
I need your lovin'
Like the sunshine

Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime

I need your lovin'
Like the sunshine

Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime

Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime

Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime
Everybody's gotta learn sometime

Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)
You've done it all, you've broken every code
And pulled the rebel to the floor
You've spoilt the game, no matter what you say
For only metal, what a bore

Blue eyes, blue eyes, how come you tell so many lies?

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, running wild

There's nothing left, all gone and run away
Maybe you'll tarry for a while
It's just a test, a game for us to play
Win or lose, it's hard to smile

Resist, resist, it's from yourself you've got to hide

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, running wild

There ain't no more, you've taken everything
From my believe in Mother Earth
Can you ignore my faith in everything
'Cause I know what faith is and what it's worth

Away, away, and don't say maybe you'll try

To Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, running wild

Ooh la la la, ooh la la la aah

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, running wild
Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, running wild

Everyday
Everyday, it's a gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey a-hey hey

Everyday, it's a gettin' faster
Everyone said go ahead and ask her
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey a-hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way, love's a little stronger
Come what May, do you really long for
True love from me?

Everyday, it's a gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey a-hey hey

Everyday seems a little longer
Every way, love's a little stronger
Come what may, do you really long for
True love from me?

Everyday, it's a gettin' closer
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey a-hey hey
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey a-hey hey
Love like yours will surely come my way

When Will I See You Again
When will I see you again?
When will we share precious moments?

Will I have to wait forever?
Will I have to suffer and cry the whole night through?

When will I see you again?
When will our hearts beat together?

Are we in love or just friends?
Is this my beginning or is this the end?

When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?

Are we in love or just friends?
Is this my beginning or is this the end?

When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?

Walking In The Rain
I want him and I need him
And someday, someway, woah oh oh oh
I'll meet him

He'll be kind of shy and real good looking too
And I'll be certain he's my guy
By the things he'll like to do

Like walking in the rain
And wishing on the stars up above
And being so in love

When he's near me I'll kiss him
And when he leaves me woah oh oh oh
I'll miss him

Though sometimes we'll fight
I won't really care, I know it's gonna be all right
'Cause we've got so much to share

Like walking in the rain 
And wishing on the stars up above
And being so in love

Jonny, no he'll never do
Harvey, no, it isn't him, too
They would never, no they'd never, never, ever love

Walking in the rain 
Wishing on the stars up above
Being so in love

Wo-ah
Where can he be?
Wo-ah
I'm still wishing
Wo-ah
Where can he be?
Wo-ah

True Love Ways
Just you know why 
Why you and I 
Will by and by 
Know true love ways 

Sometimes we'll sigh 
Sometimes we'll cry 
And we'll know why 
Just you and I 
Know true love ways 

Throughout the days 
Our true love ways 
Will bring us joys to share 
With those who really care 

Sometimes we'll sigh 
Sometimes we'll cry 
And we'll know why 
Just you and I 
Know true love ways 

Throughout the days 
Our true love ways 
Will bring us joys to share 
With those who really care 

Sometimes we'll sigh 
Sometimes we'll cry 
And we'll know why 
Just you and I 
Know true love ways
And we'll know why 
Just you and I 
Know true love ways

Ebb Tide
First the tide rushes in
Plants a kiss on the shore
Then rolls out to sea
And the sea is very still once more

So I rush to your side
Like the oncoming tide
With one burning thought
Will your arms open wide?

At last we're face to face
And as we kiss through an embrace

I can tell, I can feel
You are love, you are real
Really mine
In the dark, in the rain, in the sun

Like the tide at its ebb
I'm at peace in the web
Of your arms
Woah, woah
Ebb Tide

Can't Help Falling In Love
Wise men say only fools rush in 
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay? Would it be a sin?
If I can't help falling in love with you 

Like a river flows surely to the sea 
Darling so it goes 
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand, take my whole life too 
For I can't help falling in love with you 

Like a river flows surely to the sea 
Darling so it goes 
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand, take my whole life too 
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you


You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'
You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there's no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You're trying hard not to show it baby
But baby, baby I know it

You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, woah

Now there's no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And now you're starting to criticise everything I do
It makes me just feel like crying baby
'Cause baby, something beautiful's dyin'

You lost that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
You've lost that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, woah

Baby, baby, I'd get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do
We had a love, a love, a love you don't find everyday
So don't, don't, don't, don't let it slip away

Baby (baby), baby (baby)
I beg you please (please), please (please)
I need your love (need your love)
I need your love (need your love)
Just bring it on back (bring it on back)
Just bring it on back (bring it on back)

Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone, woah

Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Woah, that lovin' feelin'
Bring back that lovin' feelin'
Now it's gone, gone, gone
And I can't go on, woah

Goodnight
Sleepless nights don't bother me at all
If dawn comes I won't worry
Something deep inside keeps me awake
I wish that you were here right beside me, woah

I recall when I was very young
And could not go to sleep
My father sang me songs to make me tired
But memories don't make it easier

So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream you dream of me
So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream you dream of me

Now I lie awake and it's no fun
Tossing and turning
I'd call you if it weren't so very late
But telephones don't bring you close to me, woah

I recall the times we stayed up late
Wide awake but still dreaming
There was nothing on this earth could make me tired
But memories don't make it easier

So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream, if you dream, you dream of me
So goodnight wherever you are sleeping
And I hope that if you dream, if you dream, you dream of me
And I hope that if you dream you dream of me

Video Killed The Radio Star
I heard you on the wireless back in '52 
Lying awake intent on tuning in on you 
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through 
Oh-a oh 

They took the credit for your second symphony 
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see 
Oh-a oh 
I met your children 
Oh-a oh 
What did you tell them? 

Video killed the radio star 
Video killed the radio star 
Pictures came and broke your heart 
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio 
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago 
And you remember the jingles used to go 
Oh-a oh 
You were the first one 
Oh-a oh 
You were the last one

Video killed the radio star 
Video killed the radio star 
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone to far 
Oh-a-a-a oh
Oh-a-a-a oh

Video killed the radio star 
Video killed the radio star 
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone to far 
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VCR

You are a radio star 
You are a radio star 
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
