Lyrics

MP3 Clip

It Doesn't Have To Be
You are on one side
And I am on the other
Are we divided?

You are on one side
I am on the other
Are we divided?
Why can't we live together?

There are no rights
This isn't your decision
We need to talk of changing things
But no one wants to listen

It doesn't have to be like that
It doesn't have to be like that
It doesn't have to be like that

A heart on the inside
The same as any other
Are we divided?
Someone always has to suffer

We are broken
There's no one left to change it
Is that the way it has to be?
Why can't we rearrange it?

It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that

Alava mo ja na me me
Limbaniango limbaniago
Zimbabwe ado naga na me me 
Limbaniango limbaniago
Alava mo ja na me me 
Limbaniango limbaniago
Zimbabwe ado naga na me me 
Limbaniango limbaniago

What is the secret
In calling me a brother?
Are we divided?
Always one against the other

We are strong now
Put down the ammunition
For what we know is right
Is gonna breakdown this division

It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that
(One against one)
(One against one)
It doesn't have to be like that

You are one side
And I am on the other
Are we divided?

Hideaway

One day the boy decided
To let them know the way he felt inside
He could not stand to hide it
His mother she broke down and cried

Oh my father
Why don't you talk to me now?
Oh my mother
Do you still cry yourself to sleep?
Are you still proud of your little boy?

Don't be afraid
You don't have to hideaway

The boy he was rejected
By the people that he cared for
It's not what they expected
But he could not keep it secret anymore

Far from home now
Waiting by the telephone
There's a new world
You can make it on your own
Are you still proud of your little boy?

Don't be afraid
You don't have to hideaway, no

Don't be afraid
Love will mend your broken wing
Time will slip away
Learn to be brave

Oh my father
Why don't you talk to me now?
Oh my mother
Do you still cry yourself to sleep?
Are you still proud of your little boy?

Don't be afraid
You don't have to hide away, no

Don't be afraid
Love will mend your broken wing
Time will slip away
Learn to be brave

Don't Dance

Anything you want
Everything you need
Every time you take
What's on offer
You can step on out
You can do without
You don't have to be
Like every other

Don't dance to the rhythm
Do something 'bout it
Don't dance to the rhythm
You can do without it

Always stay in line
Fool you every time
Wonder why it ends up in sorrow
You don't have to go
All you say is no
There's no rhythm that you have to follow

Don't dance to the rhythm
Do something 'bout it
Don't dance to the rhythm
You can do without it

Everywhere you go
Everything you do
Got to make the best
Just that bit better
You can step on out
You can do without
You don't have to be
Like every other

Don't dance to the rhythm
Do something 'bout it
Don't dance to the rhythm
You can do without it


If I Could

Make the world a little better

I don't believe you know
What you're talking 'bout
I don't believe you'd go
And ever find out for yourself
Always got a lot to say
But I'm not listening anyway
I'm not listening anyway

If I could
Make the world a little better
You know I would
Make the world a little better
If I could
Make the world a little better

I don't believe you care
About the consequences
I don't believe you share
In what you know we know is true
Turning keys and locking doors
I won't accept that anymore
Won't accept that anymore

If I could
Make the world a little better
You know I would
Make the world a little better
If I could
Make the world a little better

I don't believe you know
About the hearts you've broken
I don't believe you show
What your intentions really are
Can you hear?
What have you done?
There's not enough for everyone
Not enough for anyone

If I could
Make the world a little better
You know I would
Make the world a little better
If I could
Make the world a little better

If I could
Make the world a little better
You know I would
Make the world a little better
If I could
Make the world a little better

Sexuality
Do it
Anyway you like it
Give it
Everything you got
Shake it
Move your body
Love it
If you like it or not

Sexuality
Sensuality

Come up to my room
Let's not pretend
Too shy about it
Sexuality
Come up to my room
Let's make amends
Can't do without it
Sexuality

Lose it
One step in the right direction
Use it
In every possible way

Sensuality

Come up to my room

Showin'
Let's tell the world about it
Playin'
We got no rules or regulations
Do it

Victim Of Love
I don't wanna look
Like some kind of fool
I don't wanna break
My heart over you
I'm building a wall
Everyday it's getting higher
This time I won't end up
Another victim of love

You say that I could show some emotion
That I've been keeping secrets from you
But I can see through all your sweet talk
And all of your affection untrue

I'm gonna find you out
If you scream and I shout
You won't break down my protection

I don't wanna look
Like some kind of fool
I don't wanna break
My heart over you
I'm building a wall
Everyday it's getting higher
This time I won't end up
Another victim of love

I'm gonna lock up what I'm feeling inside
Ain't no way you can break down the door
'Cause this time I've learned my lesson
You can take this declaration of war

Step right back
Put on your coat and your hat
Gonna avoid all complications

I don't wanna look
Like some kind of fool
I don't wanna break
My heart over you
I'm building a wall
Everyday it's getting higher
This time I won't end up
Another victim of love

I don't wanna look
Like some kind of fool
I don't wanna break
My heart over you
I'm building a wall
Everyday it's getting higher
This time I won't end up
Another victim of love

I don't wanna look
Like some kind of fool
I don't wanna break
My heart over you
I'm building a wall
Everyday it's getting higher
This time I won't end up
Another victim of love

I don't wanna look
Like some kind of fool
I don't wanna break
My heart over you
I'm building a wall
Everyday it's getting higher
This time I won't end up
Another victim of love

Leave Me To Bleed

It wasn't me that saw you
Standing by the neon lit door
It wasn't me that saw you
Clinging to somebody I deplore
Baby don't show your face
Don't move in my direction

Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal
Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal

It wasn't me that heard you
Whisper a name I'd never heard before
It wasn't me that heard you
Steal out to meet behind a secret door
I been suspecting
Done my own detecting

Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal
Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal

It wasn't me that saw you
Pick up a letter fallen on the floor
It wasn't me that heard you
Say you couldn't love me anymore
There's no mistaking
I guess I'll just be waiting

Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal
Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal

Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal
Leave me to bleed
Your love, your love can be fatal

Sometimes
It's not the way you lead me
By the hand into the bedroom
It's not the way you throw your clothes
Upon the bathroom floor

Been thinking about you
I just couldn't wait to see
Fling my arms around you
As we fall in ecstasy

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

It's not the way you caress me
Toy with my affection
It's not my sense of emptiness
You fill with your desire

Climb in bed beside me
We can lock the world outside
Touch me satisfy me
Warm your body next to mine

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

Ooh sometimes
The truth is harder than the pain inside, yeah
Ooh sometimes
It's the broken heart that decides

The Circus
Call it new technology
And they use it to burn
And they show no concern
Work for their prosperity
While the big wheels turn
Now it's too late to learn

Don't upset the teacher
Though we know he lied to you
Don't upset the preacher
He's gonna close his eyes for you

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting
In the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream

Father worked in industry
Now the work has moved on
And the factory's gone
See them sell your history
Where once you were strong
And you used to belong

There was once a future
For a working man
There was once a lifetime
For a skillful hand yesterday

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting
In the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream

Don't upset the teacher
Though we know he lied to you
Don't upset the preacher
He's gonna close his eyes for you

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting
In the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream

Tempers fray so easily
In desperate despair is there anyone who cares?
Just another tragedy
Just a personal affair in a room somewhere

There was once a future
For a working man
There was once a lifetime
For a skillful hand yesterday

And it's a shame
That you're so afraid
Just a worker waiting
In the pouring rain
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream
Putting back the pieces
Of a broken dream
Of a broken, of a broken dream

Spiralling/Safety In Numbers
I try hard
To put you out of mind
Every night alone
I'm thinking 'bout you
How can I avoid this
Pain without you?

I won't cry
I won't be sorry no more
I know that this is
Something I'll get over
Maybe I can learn to love another

It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time

Just because 
I lock myself in my room
It doesn't mean that
I'm afraid to talk to
Those people I know
That might have you seen you

No return
I keep reminding myself
I won't look back
Don't regret a single moment
I gonna mend this heart
Inside you've broken

It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time
It's just a matter of time

Show me the way
They say safety in numbers
I lift up my eyes to the sky
And imagine a crowd
Of hearts that surround me
That give the me courage to die
Were you to weep
And lie soft at my feet?
Then you'd wash all
My troubles away
And imagine the host
Of angels around me
That give me the courage to die
