Save it for another day, 'Cause the school is and the kids have run away. I would like a place I could call my own. Have a conversation on the telephone. Wake up every day that would be a start. I would not complain with my wounded heart. I was upset you see, almost all the time. You used to be a stranger. Now you are mine. I wouldn't even trust you, I've not got much to give. We're dealing in the limits, and we don't know who with. You may think that I'm out of hand, that I'm naive, I'll understand. On this occasion, it's not true. Look at me, I'm not you. I would like a place I could call my own, have a conversation on the telephone. Wake up every day that would be a start. I would not complain about my wounded heart. I was a short fuse, burning all the time. You were a complete stranger. Now you are mine. I would like a place I could call my own, have a conversation on the telephone. Wake up every day that would be a start. I would not complain about my wounded heart. Just wait till tomorrow. I guess that's what they all say, just before they fall apart. @SONG: World I turn sideways to the sun, keep my thoughts from everyone. It's a jungle, I'm a freak. Hear me talk, but never speak. So I'm stepping out of time, because breaking is a crime. And it may all be too late, but I've no passion for this hate. That's the price of love. (that's the price of love) Can you feel it? (can you feel it?) If we could buy it now, (that's the price of love) how long would it last? (that's the price of love) And when this building is on fire, these flames can't burn any higher. I turn sideways to the sun, and in a moment I am gone. (that's the price of love) That's the price of love. (can you feel it) If we could buy it now, How long would it last? (that's the price of love can you feel it?) If we could buy it now, How long will it last? @SONG: Ruined in a Day Listen, I may be wrong but you'll listen. There's something wrong you could say. Ruined in a day. You could be the lover of jade, forever on your own in the shade. Let's do it anyway. Some people like to deceive you, while others may feel that they need you. While I do the best that I can, keeping my life in my hands. And if you feel, your cradle rocking, then take the wheel, don't let me stop you. (Hang around for awhile), but stop acting like a child. Every step we take is the one, that's gonna undo what you've done. It could take all day. Some people like to deceive you, while others may feel that they need you. But I do the best that I can, I keep my world in my hands. Some people like to deceive you, while others may feel that they need you. But I do the best that I can, keeping my world in my hands. @SONG: Spooky Once in a while I need a friend, so why won't you let me recover? It's just a moment in your life, but sometimes we divide each other. Maybe we could find a time. Eliminate what's on your mind. We'd do everything we could, our presence in the neighbourhood. We could break every rule, anytime we wanted to. Don't be afraid to live this way. Lets defend the things we say. I want to be up in the air. I could be anywhere. Tell me I'm wrong, at least till tomorrow. Set me free and I will follow. Maybe we could find a time. Elevate what's on your mind. Recreate for me and you, a master plan just for two. Elevate what's on your mind. Eliminate what's on your mind. @SONG: Everybody everywhere At the end of the day, there's no food on our plate. So we beg and we steal, for we know love is real. And if we don't take a chance, in a spare sideways glance. These are all the chains I wanted, to justify the things I do. And when we kiss we speak as one, and in a single breath this world is gone. And when we kiss we speak as one. With a single breath this world is gone. It's a crisis I know, at the end of the show. People change but we don't falter, 'cause we know love is real. This is no place to shiver, so get up off the grass. You were once the main attraction, but all that's in the past. How much is free, for me and you? I'm on my knees, I am a fool. But when we kiss we speak as one. With a single breath this world is gone. (this world is gone). How could I fail to give her, when she cried such a lot. People change but we don't falter, 'cause we use what we've got. And when we kiss we speak as one. With a single breath this world is gone. And when we kiss we speak as one. With a single breath this world is gone. (this world is gone) (this world is gone) (this world is gone) @SONG: Young offender Pictures of an image of a person who could not be blamed. You are a colour and you are a number. We need a sanction to see one another. If I keep my distance in the season of the slender how. It's because of the need to live off one another. Go home young offender and stay undercover. We're busy running out of time. (Whatever it takes, I will make it mine) I'll take the future from your hands. (All the things I've ever had, I can make the perfect crime) We're strong, we do our thing, let the world cry, watch the birds sing. Give me the freedom, I need to recover. Words cannot heal, when a line is your lover. Wind howls in my chamber like an angel. (like an angel) You are a colour and you are a number. Go home young offender and stay undercover. @SONG: Liar I haven't time to sympathise, with all this nonsense and your lies. You are the king of nothing, but you shall hold me. You've got your finger on the pulse, and in my pocket, yes of course. I am the voice of treason, but you betrayed me. I used up nearly all my luck. I didn't have to try. But yesterday is gone, and now I need an alibi. If this gets any stranger things are gonna change. 'Cause I can't stand the music, always lying. If that's what it takes I'll do it (I'll do it). I'll keep on right on through it (on through it). So please believe me when I say, I wouldn't give the time of day. Because then I'd be faking, when I could tell the truth. Were you abandoned in your youth? Because if not, you will be soon. I'm growing tired of waiting, for you to say goodbye. @SONG: Chemical Any kind of fool with the will to live. Tries to get it right with the one they're with. But even though I give you special treatment, you can get it high juvenile delinquent. And this is how it feels to be, on the payroll company. Your every scene is in the round, and all the men are falling down. Constantly harrassed and misunderstood. I'm the 'lost and found' of the neighbourhood. And I end up a part of society. So don't get off the ground just be with me. I would brave the rainstorm in my car. Maybe you can leave but you won't get far. It wasn't just a dream it was much too good. Just another day in the hood of hood. And this is how it feels to be, on the payroll company. Your every scene is in the round, and all the men are falling down. And this is how it feels to be, on the payroll company. Your every scene is in the round, we don't need to hang around. @SONG: Times change In a manger like Christ I lay. Yellow fever, yellow hay. Feel the rhythm, sweetest sound. Making, breaking sacred ground. I'd give you a piece of my love for free, but whatever I say you'll never see. Acquire a taste for a different sound. Make a break this side of town. Life will never be the same. In Port-Royal town, I hear it coming. The shaking of the ground, they're stealing in the day. In Port-Royal town, the children are running. Ever strange the lives we lead, so detached from the things we need. Signs of greed in everyone. Instant eviction and the blood on a gun. Just when you think you've found it, spinning world I want to spin around it. What is wrong? This pain won't peel. The fibres of my life won't heal. @SONG: Special It isn't what it used to be. I wake up every night, on the stairs, waiting for the dawn to come. Every drop of wine, you can be my time. Only tomorrow knows. Why do we beg when we can borrow? This time we knew. No more or less, there's nothing left. It was always special, it was like water down the drain. I'm intoxicated, every time I hear your name. I try to remember, but nothing is the same. It wasn't that I didn't try. It's not the kind of thing that you buy. Written in my destiny. Life is but a dream, covered by the sky. Stop saying that you're calling time. Look at your life before you start on mine. I'm not the kind of person that you need. I'm sick of trying. I mean that, it's over. It was always special, it was like water down the drain. I'm intoxicated, every time I hear your name, I try to remember, but nothing is the same. It was always special, it was like water down the drain. Patiently you wait for me. You're so blind. I thought it couldn't be, then changed my mind. Drowning in the endless sea. Line all those lines. The traces of your memory, don't belong with mine.
