    In My Dreams

    You give me something that I've never had before
    You give me loving that I've never had before
    Yes I love you, love you, love you, love you, love you
    Baby don't you know
    And I'm never never never never never gonna let you go

    You give me feeling that I've never had before
    I once was blind but now you've opened up the door
    Yes I want you, want you, want you, want you
    Darling, baby don't you know
    And I'm never never never never never gonna let you go

    You're always in my dreams
    No matter how it seems
    If I am up or down
    You make me wear a crown of love
    You're always in my dreams
    No matter how it seems
    If I am up or down
    You make me wear a crown of love

    I once was blind but now you've opened up my eyes
    I didn't know that I was lost but now I realize
    That I want you, want you, want you, want you, want you
    Baby don't you know
    And I need you, need you, need you, need you,
    I ain't never gonna let you go

    You're always in my dreams
    No matter how it seems
    Think about you night and day
    I'm never gonna let you get away
    You're always in my dreams
    No matter how it seems
    If I am up or down
    You make me wear the crown of love

    You're always in my dreams
    No matter how it seems
    If I am up or down
    You make me wear a crown of love
    Think about you night and day
    Never gonna let you get away
    You're always in my dreams
    No matter how it seems.

    You give me loving that I've never had before
    You give me loving that I've never had before
    Yes I need you, need you, need you, need you
    Darling I love you so
    And I'm never never never never never gonna let you go

    I'm gonna be with you forever
    I'm gonna be with you forever
    I'm gonna be with you forever
    I'm gonna be with you forever...

    Simple Life

    Like ducks take to the water
    Like a daddy loves his daughter
    Like bricks need sand and mortar
    I saw the need of you
    No smoke without a fire, no love without desire
    No song without a choir
    No me without a you

    It's a simple life
    You've got to learn to let it happen
    It's a simple life
    Don't complicate creation
    It's a simple life
    Your natural situation
    Is a simple life.

    Like Minnie Mouse needs Mickey
    Eisenhower needed Tricky Dickie
    Like Sky Bush pulled a sickie
    I saw the need of you
    No rum without a raisin
    No fleece without a Jason
    No house without a mason
    No me without a you

    It's a simple life
    You've got to learn to let it happen
    It's a simple life
    Don't complicate creation
    It's a simple life
    Your natural situation
    Is a simple life.

    The answer to your question is
    The problem lies between your ears
    If you feel worried down or sad
    Just think of the best day you've ever had
    You've ever had
    You've ever had
    You've ever had.

    It's a simple life
    Like a warm fire in the winter
    It's a simple life
    Like silence from Harold Pinter
    It's a simple life
    Your natural situation
    Is a simple life

    The answer to your question is
    The problem lies between your ears
    If you feel worried down or sad
    Think of the best day you've ever had
    You've ever had

    It's a simple life
    You've got to learn to let it happen
    It's a simple life
    Don't complicate creation
    It's a simple life
    Your natural situation
    Is a simple life.
    Oooo it's a simple life
    Oooo it's a simple life
    Ooo-Oooo it's a simple life
    Ooo-Oooo it's a simple life
    Simple life
    Simple life

    This Moment



    This moment is so precious,
    It’s not like any other song unique
    This moment like no other
    Answers all your questions do not speak
    Let go the fear of unknown situations
    Don’t fret and you’ll get more from life
    Live in the present of spiritual sound
    Where the air simply moves you around

    And this moment is so special
    Given to you by friends who pulled you through
    Let go the tension and feel the attraction
    The magnet of love draws you through
    The doors of deception
    Where your dreams can be fulfilled
    With the promise of loving renewed

    And this moment of so precious
    It’s not like any other song unique
    And this moment like no other
    It answers all your questions do not speak
    The answer was there before you learned to speak
    Look into my eyes
    Look into my eyes.

    Why?

    My baby says, "Daddy is smiling
    What are you thinking right now?"
    I say, "It's just something I thought of
    Of why we are here and how.
    Everybody needs their daddy sometime
    Well I know 'cos I did
    And everybody needs their mama sometime
    I know 'cos I did
    And everybody searches for a true love
    I know 'cos I did
    And everybody goes a little crazy
    Well I know 'cos I did

    We're only human after all
    We're just the slaves that nature calls
    To do the bidding and the task
    It's probably better not to ask
    Why...why...why...why..."

    My baby says, "Tell me a story
    About things that you did as a child
    Were you as good as you want me to be
    Or were you a little bit wild?"
    I said, "Now everybody cheats a little, lies and dies a little
    Well, I know, 'cos I did
    And everybody drinks too much and cries a little
    I know 'cos I did
    Everybody looks for perfection and affection
    Well I know 'cos I did
    And everybody wants to be the center of attention
    I know 'cos I did.

    We're only human after all
    We're just the slaves that nature calls
    To do the bidding and the task
    It's probably better not to ask
    Why...why...why...why...

    Now everybody loses their daddy sometime
    Well, I know 'cos I did
    And everybody loses their mama sometime
    Well, I know 'cos I did
    Everybody gets a little lonely
    Well I know 'cos I did
    And everybody eventually gets bored
    And I know 'cos I did

    We're only human after all
    We're just the slaves that nature calls
    To do the bidding and the task
    It's probably better not to ask
    Why...why...why...why..."

    My baby says, "Daddy is smiling
    What are you thinking right now?"
    I say, "It's just something I thought of
    Of why we are here and how."
    My baby says, "Daddy is smiling
    Oh, what a pleasant surprise."
    I say, "If it wasn't for you girl
    There'd be no point in trying to survive."

    Do It Now

    How many times have you told yourself
    To make that call and hang the consequences
    That you imagine would ensue
    If you apologize

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now

    It's no sacrifice to give
    A little more than you intended
    At the time your sense of self was bruised
    Beyond demanding process

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now

    The inner child in you can grow up
    When memories are finally defeated
    Beat up, rolled up, and thrown out
    Those mixed-up words and pictures of your private movies
    They must be deleted, rephrased, erased, and blown out

    How many times have you told yourself
    She's far too good, I don't deserve it?
    Knowing you're afraid to fail
    Your own idea of love don't deserve it.

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now

    The inner child in you can grow up
    When memories are finally defeated
    Beat up, rolled up, and thrown out
    Those mixed-up words and pictures of your private movies
    They must be deleted, rephrased, erased, and blown out

    How many times have you told yourself
    To make that call and hang the consequences
    That you imagine would ensue
    If you apologize

    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Never leave it till it's too late
    Do it now
    Do it now
    Do it now
    Do it now....

    Imagination Sea

    So the story begins
    As he searched for paradise
    Thinking it was a place
    Instead of a state of mind
    He asked the way from the wise
    As they smiled and they turned away
    Faded into the mist on a perfect summer's day

    When someone big in your life is suddenly whisked away
    All those terrible tears
    Empty and lonely days
    Was it something you said? you wonder
    Then softly pray
    Set me free, let me go, let my spirit live again

    What's my life for?
    Can I make more
    of love than love has made of me?
    Oh, this life seems
    Made of strange dreams
    Adrift on imagination sea

    What's my life for?
    Can I make more
    of love than love has made of me?
    Oh, this life seems
    Made of strange dreams
    Adrift on imagination sea

    One more kiss on the cheek
    And you are a child again
    The unconditional love
    That cures you of every pain
    Finding someone to trust
    With feelings you've found again
    They're buried deep in your heart
    Let your spirit live again

    And what's my life for?
    Can I make more
    of love than love has made of me?
    Oh, this life seems
    Made of strange dreams
    Adrift on imagination sea.

    Little Bird

    Your heart is beating like a little bird
    First you want to stay
    Then you fly away
    You find it hard to put it into words
    And commit your heart
    To a brand-new start
    And you feel the cold

    Your heart is beating like a little drum
    When you come to me
    For some sanctuary
    Escaping from a self-made house of cards
    Trying to have it all
    But your obstacle
    Is your sense of truth

    No, the bird can't sing
    And with a broken wing
    She can't fly
    So love, it dies

    Your appetite for love cannot be satisfied
    Feigning compromise
    You don't realize
    The books and films and poems that state the case
    Leave one thing aside --
    That joy is justified
    If it comes from you

    So your days go by
    And the seasons fly
    Only you can make you better
    No, the bird can't sing
    And with a broken wing
    She can't fly
    So love, it dies.

    So your days go by
    And the seasons fly
    Only you can make you better
    And the bird can't sing,
    With her broken wing
    She can't fly,
    So love, it dies.

    It's Not Hard

    It's not hard to believe
    That the sun will always rise
    That the moon will take its place
    And that the stars will stand in line
    It's not hard to believe
    That the wind will move the trees
    That the wind will bring the rain
    And wealth will bring you to your knees

    We're unsuspecting victims of eternal circumstance
    We're only broken pieces in this crazy game of chance

    It's not hard to imagine
    That the sea will break to shore
    That whatever used to be
    Will be changed forevermore
    It's not hard to remember
    When the times they were so good
    We must always remember
    That after rain there is a flood

    We're unsuspecting victims of eternal circumstance
    We're only broken pieces in this crazy game of chance

    Underneath the surface you have peeled
    When your true existence is revealed
    From the outer skin down to the core
    The "you" you are will be the same forevermore.

    It's not hard to believe
    That the sun will always rise
    That the moon will take its place
    And that the stars will stand in line
    It's not hard to believe
    That the wind will move the trees
    That the wind will bring the rain
    And wealth will bring you to your knees.

    We're unsuspecting victims of eternal circumstance
    We're only broken pieces in this crazy game of chance.

    Be Yourself

    Don't repeat all the same mistakes
    That's what experience is for
    All that energy going to waste
    On something you should ignore
    And go for those pastures new
    And try to find someone who
    Will share all those dreams with you
    And just try to smile if you do

    So let your conscience be your guide
    You can run but you can't hide
    Live with who you are inside
    Just be yourself

    Reconsider your instincts
    When you feel somebody's been bad
    Your reality's not the same
    The world is all that they have
    Don't fight but just walk away
    Let ignorance have its day
    It's sad when they have their way
    They really have nothing to say

    Well let your conscience be your guide
    If it feels wrong let it ride
    Then eventually you'll decide
    To be yourself

    Fashion determines nothing
    Only the fact will save
    Following all the leaders
    When you should know just how to behave

    Let your conscience be your guide
    You can run but you can't hide
    Live with who you are inside
    Be yourself.

    The Sun

    Once bitten, two times shy
    Afraid of lovin' 'cos it made you cry
    Standing still at the crossroads of love
    Make a move, darlin', heavens above
    You can't wait too long whilst live passes you by
    Clouds always come in a bright blue sky
    Whilst all around you all the people that you see
    Are showing you, showing you how good it could be

    Well, it's a long time coming
    When it does, grab it fast
    Don't you worry 'bout how long it's gonna last
    A flower wouldn't bloom if it wasn't for the rain
    And if it rains
    The sun is always gonna come out again
    The sun is always gonna come out again

    "Never again," was your constant refrain
    In your experience, love always equals pain
    And when a candidate came into view
    You were prepared to write out an IOU
    The road to success has many many signs
    Fear shuts your eyes and always makes you blind
    Open up your heart and take this message you get from me
    Tear off your chains
    Once more you'll be free

    Well, it's a long time coming
    When it does, grab it fast
    Don't you worry 'bout how long it's gonna last
    A flower wouldn't bloom if it wasn't for the rain
    And if it rains
    The sun is always gonna come out again
    The sun is always gonna come out again

    Once bitten, two times shy
    Afraid of lovin' 'cos it made you cry
    Standing still at the crossroads of love
    Make a move, darlin', heavens above
    You can't wait too long whilst live passes you by
    Clouds always come in a bright blue sky
    Whilst all around you all the people that you see
    Are showing you, showing you how good it could be.
    How good it could be

    Well, it's a long time coming
    When it does, grab it fast
    Don't you worry 'bout how long it's gonna last
    A flower wouldn't bloom if it wasn't for the rain
    And if it rains
    The sun is always gonna come out again
    The sun is always gonna come out again
    The sun is always gonna come out again.

    The Affair

    You saw me coming
    You saw me coming
    You saw me coming and you didn't step aside
    You saw right through me
    Reached out and touched me
    And in one touch my inhibitions stepped aside

    That's the way
    That's the way
    That's the way the affair begins
    That's the day
    That's the day
    That's the day that the devil grins

    A little later
    The information
    That made you think that she was free you find was wrong
    But now it's too late
    You are a hostage
    And now you want her even though you know it's wrong

    That's the way
    You're a fool in the play
    And the affair goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on....
    That's the way
    Every day
    That the devil grows more strong

    Now there is silence
    No text or message
    Your mind plays tricks and you lose your self-esteem
    You close the curtains
    And put the light out
    The only time she's there is in your restless dreams

    That's the way
    That's the way
    And the affair is done
    That's the day
    That's the day
    That the devil moves on.

    Greensleeves

    Alas why have you done me wrong
    To cut me off by leaving me
    For I've been loving you so long
    What can you gain by bleeding me?

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves

    I'll do whatever you demand
    Devote myself to pleasing you
    I'd give my all to understand
    What you desire, I'd gladly do.

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves

    The days are long, the nighttimes too
    I've lost the thing that I most need
    This aching heart, it beats for you
    As hopes and dreams they do recede

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves

    I bid you, darling, sad farewell
    May all your dreams be realized
    And whosoever weds you, well,
    He'll be in heaven before he dies

    Greensleeves was my delight
    Greensleeves was my heart of gold
    Greensleeves was my heart of joy
    And who but my lady Greensleeves.
