One of Us
   
   They passed me by, all of those great romances
   You were, I felt, robbing me of my rightful chances
   My picture clear, everything seemed to easy
   And so I dealt you the blow
   One of us had to go
   Now it's different, I want you to know

   One of us is crying
   One of us is lying
   In her lonely bed
   Staring at the ceiling
   Wishing she was somewhere else instead
   One of us is lonely
   One of us is only
   Waiting for a call
   Sorry for herself, feeling stupid feeling small
   Wishing she had never left at all

   I saw myself as a concealed attraction
   I felt you kept me away from the heat and the action
   Just like a child, stubborn and misconceiving
   That's how I started the show
   One of us had to go
   Now I've changed and I want you to know

   One of us is crying
   One of us is lying
   In her lonely bed
   Staring at the ceiling
   Wishing she was somewhere else instead
   One of us is lonely
   One of us is only
   Waiting for a call
   Sorry for herself, feeling stupid feeling small
   Wishing she had never left at all
   Never left at all


Almaz

   She only smiles,
   He only tells her that she's the flowers,
   The wind and spring,
   In all her splendour,
   Sweetly surrendering the love that innocence brings.

   Almaz
   Pure and simple,
   Born in a world where love survives.
   Now men will want her 'cause life don't haunt her,
   Almaz, you lucky, lucky thing.

   Now I watch closely and I watch wholly,
   I can't imagine love so rare,
   She's young and tender,
   But will life bend her?
   I look around,
   Is she everywhere?

   Almaz
   Pure and simple,
   Born in a world where love survives.
   Now men will want her 'cause life don't haunt her,
   Almaz, you lucky, lucky thing.

   He throws her kisses,
   She shares his wishes,
   I'm sure he's keen without a doubt.
   With love so captive,
   So sorely captive,
   I ask if I could play the part.

   Almaz
   Pure and simple,
   Born in a world where love survives.
   Now men will want her 'cause life don't haunt her,
   Almaz, you lucky, lucky thing.

   Almaz, you lucky, lucky thing.
   Almaz, you lucky, lucky thing.


A Question of Lust

   Fragile
   Like a baby in your arms
   Be gentle with me
   I'd never willingly
   Do you harm

   Apologies
   Are all you seem to get from me
   But just like a child
   You make me smile
   When you care for me
   And you know...

   It's a question of lust
   It's a question of trust
   It's a question of not letting
   What we've built up
   Crumble to dust
   It is all of these things and more
   That keep us together

   Independence
   Is still important for us though (we realize)
   It's easy to make
   The stupid mistake
   Of letting go (do you know what I mean)

   My weakness
   You know each and every one
   (It frightens me)
   But I need to drink
   More than you seem to think
   But I'm anyone's
   And you know...

   It's a question of lust
   It's a question of trust
   It's a question of not letting
   What we've built up
   Crumble to dust
   It is all of these things and more
   That keep us together

   Kiss me goodbye
   When I'm on my own
   But you know that I'd
   Rather be home

   It's a question of lust
   It's a question of trust
   It's a question of not letting
   What we've built up
   Crumble to dust
   It is all of these things and more
   That keep us together


Memories Fade

   There's only need
   I love your need
   So much I'm losing me
   I cannot see the reason for the pain
   With hungry joy - I'll be your toy
   Just hoping you will play
   Without the hope my body starts to fail

   Memories fade but the scars still linger
   Goodbye my friend - Will I ever love again
   Memories fade but the scars still linger

   I cannot grow
   I cannot move
   I cannot feel my age
   The vice like grip of tension holds me fast
   Engulfed by you - What can I do
   When history's my cage
   Look forward to a future in the past

   Memories fade but the scars still linger
   Goodbye my friend - Will I ever love again
   Memories fade but the scars still linger

   The more I talk
   The more I say
   The less you seem to hear
   I'm speechless in a most peculiar way
   Your mind is weak - Your need is great
   And nothing is too dear
   For you to use to take the pain away

   Memories fade but the scars still linger
   Goodbye my friend - Will I ever love again
   Memories fade

   No don't pretend you can justify the end
   Memories fade but the scars still linger
   Still linger, still linger


Hello

   I've been alone with you inside my mind
   And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times
   I sometimes see you pass outside my doors

   Hello, is it me you're looking for?
   I can see it in your eyes
   I can see it in your smile
   You're all I've ever wanted, (and) my arms are open wide
   'Cause you know just what to say
   And you know just what to do
   And I want to tell you so much, I love you...

   I long to see the sunlight in your hair
   And tell you time and time again how much I care
   Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow

   Hello, I've just got to let you know
   'Cause I wonder where you are
   And I wonder what you do
   Are you somewhere feeling lonely, or is someone loving you?
   Tell me how to win your heart
   For I haven't got a clue
   But let me start by saying, I love you...

   Hello, is it me you're looking for?
   'Cause I wonder where you are
   And I wonder what you do
   Are you somewhere feeling lonely, or is someone loving you?
   Tell me how to win your heart
   For I haven't got a clue
   But let me start by saying... I love you


Save A Prayer

   You saw me standing by the wall, corner of a main street
   And the lights are flashing on your window sill
   All alone ain't much fun, so you're looking for the thrill
   And you know just what it takes and where to go
   
   Don't save a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
   No, don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
   
   Feel the breeze deep on the inside, look you down into the well
   If you can, you'll see the world in all his fire
   Take a chance (like all the dreamers can find another way?)
   You don't have to dream it all, just live a day

   Don't save a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
   No, don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
   Save it 'til the morning after, save it it 'til the morning after

   Pretty looking road, I try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin
   Don't ask me why I'll keep my promise, I'll melt the ice
   And you wanted to dance so I asked you to dance
   But fear is in your soul
   Some people call it a one night stand
   But we can call it paradise

   Don't save a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
   No, don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
   Save it 'til the morning after
   Save it 'til the morning after 
   Save it 'til the morning after 
   Save it 'til the morning after
   Save a prayer 'til the morning after
   Save a prayer 'til the morning after
   Save a prayer 'til the morning after
   Save a prayer 'til the morning after


Forever Young

   Let's dance in style
   Let's dance for a while
   Heave can wait,
   We're only watching the skies
   Hoping for the best
   But expecting the worst

   Are you going to drop the bomb or not????
   Let us die young or let us live forever
   We don't have the power
   But we never say never
   
   Sitting in a sandpit,
   Life is a short trip
   The music's for the sad men
   Can you imagine when this race is won??
   Turn our golden faces into the sun
   Praising our leaders,
   We're getting in tune
   The music's played by the madmen

   Forever young, I want to be forever young
   Do you really want to live forever?
   Forever - And ever
   Forever young, I want to be forever young
   Do you really want to live forever?
   Forever young

   Some are like water
   Some are like the heat
   Some are a melody and some are the beat
   Sooner or later, they all will be gone
   Why don't they stay young?
   It's so hard to get old without cause
   I don't want to perish like a fading horse
   
   Youth's like diamonds in the sun
   And diamonds are forever
   So many adventures couldn't happen today
   So many songs we forgot to play
   So many dreams swinging out of the blue
   We'll let them come true

   Forever young, I want to be forever young
   Do you really want to live forever?
   Forever - And ever
   Forever young, I want to be forever young
   Do you really want to live forever?


Here Comes the Flood

   When the night shows, the signals grow on radios,
   All the strange things they come and go as early warnings,
   Stranded starfish have no place to hide
   Still waiting for the swollen easter tide,
   There's no point in direction, we cannot even choose a side.

   I took the told track the hollow shoulder across the water,
   On the tall cliffs, they were getting older sons and daughters,
   The jaded underworld was riding high,
   Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky,
   And as the nails sunk in the cloud, 
   The rain was warm and soaked the cloud.

   Lord, here comes the flood,
   We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood,
   If again the seas are silent, and any's still alive,
   It'll be those who gave their island to survive
   Drink up dreamers, you're running dry.
   When the flood calls, you have no home, you have no walls

   In the thundercrash,
   A thousand lights within a flash,
   Don't be afraid to cry at what you see,
   The actors gone, there's only you and me,
   And if we break up before the dawn,
   They'll use up what we used to be.

   Lord, here comes the flood,
   We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood,
   If again the seas are silent, and any's still alive,
   It'll be those who gave their island to survive
   Drink up dreamers, you're running dry.
   When the flood calls, you have no home, you have no walls
