Track Name: I Watch You
I Watch You 1989

I watch you, you watch me
Through the chains of somebody’s dreams
Speeding past, worn out cars go falling fast
It’s a game, it was meant to be
So lay……………. So lay………

I watch you through the fire
Avoiding eyes, they strike me blind
You glance, swords advance there was no chance
In a cellar marking time
So lay…………….
So lay down by me, right next to me
So, So, So lay……………. So lay…………

Through the rushes, down the streams
Through connections we’ve been seen
Come tomorrow, we’ll be torn apart
No age could cure this aching heart

So lay……………. So lay………
So, So, So, So
So lay……………. So lay………
Ooh………………….
Track Name: Start Again
Start Again 1986

Here comes rain feel it all around
Here comes the rain feeding the ground
Hear them say, watch them steal away
Bring new life, bring new life start again

I wanna be something else
I wanna see the real thing
I gotta be, be myself
Toe the line, start again

Here comes rain feeding the ground
Here comes the rain can’t you feel it all around
Here they sway, change their minds, draw the blinds then slip away
Feel the knife carve new life then start again

I wanna be by your side
I wanted to see you all the time
Watch the streams solidify, who’s sanctified now
In our collision we turn to ice

You can’t hide the pain
Can’t you listen, listen to what you’re saying?
Two lonely people washed away like tears in the rain
Others, they get up they start again

Here comes rain, come down from the trees
Here comes the rain, get up off your knees
Here comes rain, the solution for the situation
Here comes the rain, we can start again
Here comes rain agh…………..
Here comes the rain, hear me say
Here comes rain agh…………..
Here comes the rain, you can start again
Track Name: Soap Opera
Soap Opera 1984

No status symbols, hungry politicians
Static erosion taking over me
No scenic routes, hiding in machinery,
No party slogan gonna walk all over me
I turn on my TV and look to my window,
There’s room on the screen it’s there down below

You got me covered, you saw my number
So it’s all worked out, you’ve been taking notes yourself

Snooping in my closet could open many things
I’m not so sure that we can close them all again
I turn to my TV and switch off some people
There’s room on the screen, there’s room down below ooh

Rah rah rah…………………………………..

No sense in hiding, disguising or pretending
Our cards are on the table, table’s in the bin
You got me covered, you got my number
You’re so sure you don’t have to look again
I run to the TV and turn off my window
Look to the screen its happened again
Turn to my TV, and switch off some people
I feel the transmission blow me away ooh……
Away ……………

Rah rah rah…………………………………..
Track Name: Oh John (The Other Side)
Oh John (The Other Side) 1985

Oh John, how could you treat me this way
You said, things would never be quite the same
Today’s just a game we play
Hey hey…. ‘Carte Blanche’ again
You got me walking the beach with your card in my hand
You got me walking the streets, I don’t understand

I could be somebody, I could have starred the role
But you don’t walk back from the other side oh no


John
Are you there John?
Are you here John?

Oh John, where will we be this time?
It seems our luck’s run dry
You know, they’ll never understand
I could have been the killer on the other hand ……
Track Name: Moving To The Beat
Moving To The Beat 1985

Moving to the beat, locking out the doors
Looking like a no-go, talking ‘bout what was
Ain’t got no rhythm, ain’t got no car
Just church on Mondays, you wanna know
You’re gonna know
Aw…. Aw… Aw… Aw…. Aw… Aw…

Encircling the street, they push you to your feet
Eating your front and anything you meet
Don’t need no conference to see what’s going down
Move over, I’ll see you ‘round

When the sun goes down they’ll be standing on the streets with their stereos (stereos)
With their ears to the ground they’ll be taking all the guano of the town
When the sun goes down they won’t give a damn ‘bout no baño

With their backs to the light they’ll be hanging on the street with their credit cards
Smoking cigarettes and laughing in the faces of the fool
Thinking they are cool in their Volks Wagon vans they are supermen
Dancing on the beach while I take another drink from my stool.
When the sun goes down they’ll be standing on the streets with their stereos
With their ears to the ground they’ll be taking all the guano of the town
When the sun goes down they won’t give a damn about no baño …..I know

Aw…. Aw… Aw… Aw…. Aw… Aw…
Track Name: Girls
Girls 1984

Girls making a film
Making a photograph for you
And you don't need to smile
To look like a queen this time

She coulda been a killer but she don't talk dirty,
She shoulda been a killer oh
She coulda been a killer but the kids got needing

Girls make up our minds
Leading us round the night
Don't need to try so hard
I miss you a thousand times

She coulda been a killer but her friends got talking, shoulda been a killer you know
She coulda been a killer but her mind got working

………………………

Girls live on the phone
Taking a thousand calls (I missed you a thousand times)
And you don't have to smile, to look like a China doll

She coulda been a killer but she don't talk dirty
Shoulda been a killer oh
She coulda been a killer but the kids got needing
She coulda been a killer but her friends got talking shoulda been a killer you know
She coulda been a killer but the mind got working

…………………..

La la la la ……………………………………
Track Name: In A Shell
In A Shell 1983 & 88

Take a ride on a plane or a train or a
drain going down in the ground just to get away
Put the world that you have in a sack on your back
get around outta town ‘fore you go insane
Do your thing everyday
Time stands still for no-one whatever they say

We’re in a shell
I can you feel it breaking
It’s how’d you say
‘Voulez vous’

Take a walk take run in the sun
you’re the one who got it wrong no-one else to blame
What you want you don’t know what you don’t is a role
Work a week, sleep, ’til you’re there again
All you say is ‘it’s a mess’ everyday
You can stay where you stand in a dream

You’re in a shell
Can’t you feel it breaking
Like I say
‘Voulez vous’

Safe in your shell
‘Til the walls start breaking, cracking, falling
It’s how’d you say
‘Voulez vous’
Track Name: I Got A Feeling
I Got A Feeling 1979

I got a feeling, something in my head goes around, around, around
Near sounding perfect they go down, they go down,
they go down
Look at that ceiling, it’s all torn away and wrapped up in a dream
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….

Hans creeping closer, hurry on home lock yourself in your room
Each one is another, never look back ‘cause it’s only for you
Hold, clutch and remember ‘tomorrows the start of a different race’
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….


I got a feeling, something in my head goes around, around, around
Near sounding perfect they go down, they go down,
they go down
Look at that ceiling, it’s all torn away and wrapped up in a dream
All torn away and wrapped up in a dream
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Ah…………… Ah……………….
Track Name: It's Only Love (Parts 1 & 2)
It’s only Love 2016, 1986 & 1989

I’m a friend of a friend
Won’t you let me in and talk just a little bit
I’ve followed you ‘round the World
Waiting for a chance to look into your eyes
Won’t you let me in and talk just a little bit


It’s only love, it’s only
It’s only love and a stranger’s tears

I saw you standing, back at the door
Waiting for a chance to walk across the street,
I picked myself up off the floor

Feel the voice
Hear the fall

You hesitated, picked up the phone
I sensed my chance slip away,
what else could I have done

Feel the force …….. oh no, no
Feel the fall………. Oh

It’s only love, it’s only
It’s only love and a stranger’s tear

It was so cold deep in my hand
Twisting screaming so demanding and you won’t understand

Ah …………….Ah……………Ah………….

He walked into oblivion with nothing in his eyes
Nothing in his eyes
Staring at the sun discarding everything
Throwing things around
There was nothing I could do nothing I could say


It’s only love, it’s only
It’s only love, it’s only, wa-hah
It’s only love, it’s only, love
It’s only love, it’s the strangest feeling

It’s only love, it’s only, Yeah
It’s only love, it’s only, it’s only, ooh ooh ooh
It’s only love, it’s only love, it’s only
