I Want You

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola

I don't need to try and explain:
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might
move so slightly
To the arms and lips and the
face of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you
When I get to you

Ooh, I want you
I don't know if I need you
But, ooh, I'd die to find out
Ooh, I want you
I don't know if I need you
But, ooh, I'd die to find out

I'm the kind of person who
endorses
a deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect
is what I live for
But a look, then a smell of perfume
It's like I'm down on the floor
And I don't know what I'm in for

Conversation has a time and a place
In the interaction of a lover and
a mate,
But the time of talking
using symbols, using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver
who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You'll never know what hit you
When I get to you

Ooh, I want you
I don't know if I need you
But, ooh, I'd die to find out
Ooh, I want you
I don't know if I need you
But, ooh, I'd die to find out

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola

I don't need to try and explain:
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again,
I might move so slightly
To the arms and the lips and
the face of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

Ooh, I want you
I don't know if I need you
But, ooh, I'd die to find out
Ooh, I want you
I don't know if I need you
But, ooh, I'd die to find out
So can we find out?

To The Moon and Back

She's taking her time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smiles
and the look in their eyes
Everyone's got a theory about the bitter one
They're saying, "Mamma never loved her much"
And, "Daddy never keeps in touch
That's why she shies away from
human affection"
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she's waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she'll say to him

I would fly to the moon & back if you'll be...
If you'll be my baby
Got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

She can't remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was colour blind
All her friend they've been tried for treason
And crimes that were never defined
She's saying, "Love is like a barren place,
And reaching out for human faith
Is like a journey I just don't have a map for"
So baby's gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she's hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream

I would fly to the moon & back if you'll be...
If you'll be my baby
Got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

Truly, Madly, Deeply

I'll be your dream I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly, madly, deeply do
I will be strong I will be faithful 'cause I'm counting on

A new beginning
A reason for living
A deeper meaning

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky,
I'll make a wish to send it to heaven
Then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure in the certainty
That we're surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The highest powers
In lonely hours
The tears devour you
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me
Oh can you see it baby?
You don't have to close your eyes
'Cause its standing right here before you
All that you need will surely come

I'll be your dream I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be you hope I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly, madly deeply do

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Tears Of Pearls

And we stare each other down like victims in the grind
Probing all the weakness and hurt still left behind and we cry
The tears of pearls
We do it. Oh we do it.
Is love really the tragedy the way you might describe?
Or would a thousand lovers still leave you cold inside?
Make you cry...
These tears of pearls
All these mixed emotions
We keep locked away like stolen pearls
Stolen pearls devotions we keep locked away from all the world
Your kisses are like pearls, so different and so rare
But anger stole the jewels away and love has left you bare,
Made you cry...
These tears of pearls
Well I could be the tired joker pour my heart to get you in
Sacrifice my happiness just so I could win
Maybe cry...
These tears of pearls
All these mixed emotions
We keep locked away like stolen pearls
Stolen pearls devotions we keep locked away from all the world
We twist and turn where angels burn
Like fallen soldiers we will learn
That once forgotten, twice removed
Love will be the death...
The death of you
All these mixed emotions
We keep locked away like stolen pearls
Stolen pearls devotions we keep locked away from all the world.

Universe

Well I'd like to take you as I find you
Imagine our clothes are on the floor
Feel my caress so soft and gentle
So delicate you cry for more
But you know baby
You know baby does it right
And you know baby does it right
Universe inside of your heart
You gotta let me know so you can be free baby
You wanted it so much, and now that it's over
You don't know what you want
Put time in a capsule
Two minds consensual
Entwined to perfection
If we could...
Cuddle up close
Lay your head on my chest now
Listen my heart beat's coming down
If you get tired you close your eyes now
When you wake up I won't be found
'Cause I know baby I know you're the nervous kind
With so much going on in your mind
Universe inside your heart
You gotta let me know so you can be free baby
You wanted it so much, and now that it's over
You don't know what you want
But let me tell you that, this time,
I'm going to make you mine (I won't let you go)
'Cause I know, this time I'm going to make sure I look out for me
'Cause I know baby
Well you know baby does it right
And you know baby does it right
You will only end up lost in loneliness
And wake up with the words already in your lips
So I'll let you go, baby
So I'll let you go...
Universe inside your heart
You gotta let me know so you can be free baby
You wanted it so much, and now that it's over
You don't know what you want

Carry On Dancing

The moonlight...
Shines down interstellar beams
And the groove tonight Is something more than you've ever seen
The stars and planets taking shape
A stolen kiss has come too late
In the moonlight
Carry on, keep romancing
Carry on, carry on dancing In the moonlight
Carry on, keep romancing
Carry on, carry on dancing
You're never safe 'till you see the dawn
And the clock strikes past midnight
The hope is gone
To move under...
In the moonlight
Carry on, keep romancing
Carry on, carry on dancing
In the moonlight
Carry on, keep romancing
Carry on, carry on dancing
Move. Closer. Passion. Stronger
There's a magic only two can tell In the dark night
Ultra Violet is a wicked spell
The stars and planets taking shape
A stolen kiss has come to late
In the moonlight
Carry on, keep romancing
Carry on, carry on dancing
In the moonlight
Carry on, keep romancing
Carry on, carry on dancing
Moving on...
Moving all night

Violet

If there's a way that you could be everything you want to be,
Would you complain that it came to easy?
Just like the games with you and me
A resolution hard to see,
But that's O.K. 'cause I don't see things that are plain to see
I've got a dream to take you over
Exploding like a supernova
I'm going to crash into your world
And that's no lie
You want to give ecstasy delivered with certainty
But you're afraid that the pleasure won't be needed
In a way, we're the same two people looking out to sea
For a wave that would carry all our fantasies
If there's a way to infiltrate you
Sway your mind and complicate you
I'm going to crash into your world
And that's no lie
Let your body move into the doorway
To the disco inside your head (Violet)
Wear a colour that you want to cling to
The colour inside your head (Violet)
Contemplate jealousy intermixed with urgency
A million things take a damned good shot at you and me
If there's a way to infiltrate you
Sway your mind and complicate you
I'm going to crash into your world
And that's no lie
Let your body move into the doorway
To the disco inside your head (Violet)
Wear a colour that you want to cling to
The colour inside your head (Violet)
I'm gonna take you
I'll do my best to break you
I'm gonna take you higher
And that's no lie
Common sense is a game many people don't like to play
But give it in and the moment takes you either way
I've got a dream to take you over
Exploding like a supernova
I'm going to crash into your world
And that's no lie
Let your body move into the doorway
To the disco inside your head (Violet)
Wear a colour that you want to cling to
The colour inside your head (Violet)
If there's a way that you could be everything you want to be,
Would you complain that it came too easy?
In a way, we're the same two people looking out to see
For a wave that would carry all our fate

Break Me Shake Me

I never thought I'd change my opinion again
But you moved me in a way that I've never known
You moved me in a way that I've never known
But straight away you just moved into position again
You abused me in a way that I've never known
You abused me in a way that I've never known
So break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
So your the kind that deals with the games in the mind
Well you confuse me in a way that I've never known
You confuse me in a way that I've never known
So break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
She says, "I can help you, but what do you say?"
But it's not for free baby, you'll have to pay
You just keep me contemplating, that your soul is slowly fading
God don't you know that I live with a ton of regret?
'Cause I move you in a way that you've never known
But then I accused you in a way that you've never known
But you hurt me in a way that I've never known...
Break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Just break me shake me hate me take me over
When the madness stops then you will be alone
Listen, baby
You'll be, you'll be alone
Break me shake me hate me take me make me
Fake me break me shake me hate me take me
Break me

A Thousand Words

We stumble in a tangled web, decaying friendships almost dead
And hide behind a mask of lies
We twist and turn and we avoid, all hope of salvage now devoid
I see the truth inside your eyes
So take all this noise into your brain and send it back again
I'll bear the cost, shed my skin, call you up and then...
I'll say the words out loud
You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reasons why I don't need you anymore
Time manipulates your heart, preconception torn apart
Begin to doubt my state of mind
But I won't go down on what I said
I won't retract convictions read I may perplex, but I'm not blind
So take all this noise into your brain and send it back again
I'll bear the cost, shed my skin, call you up and then...
I'll say the words out loud
You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reasons why I don't need you anymore
Manipulation. Fabrication. Conversation. Annihilation
I'll say a thousand words or more
Damnation. Frustration. Elevation. Procreation
I'll say a thousand word or more
You could resurrect a thousand words to deceive me more and more
A thousand words will give the reasons why I don't need you anymore.

Promises

Well don't you know I need a little indulgence?
Listen to the hunter becoming hunted
Every day there's a million advances
Don't be too forceful you'll ruin your chances
Well don't you know that time is a broken glass
That splinters against to wall?
But the picture is coming back now baby,
And I want to take it all.
Don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and time to be a thief
'Cause if you're makin all these promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up alone
So let you body move a little bit closer
Silent like the sound proceeding a cyclone
Don't you know that powerful thinking
Can be a force you don't want to relinquish?
Well don't you know that,
They say that hanging on will justify the wait?
But patience and elated wisdom don't share a common phrase
Don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and time to be a thief
'Cause if you're makin all these promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up alone
Well, I'm only hanging on for what goes down
I'm floating high and my feet don't touch the ground
I'd take advantage but I can't see through the charade
So don't you, don't go make it harder than hell
'Cause when it comes down to the making
You better be damned sure you can take it
Hey baby
Well don't go making all these promises you know you cannot keep
There's a time to play a king and time to be a thief
'Cause if you're makin all these promises you know you cannot keep
You know time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up alone
Time will be the thief and your fallen king will end up...
A fool, a fool, a lonely sorry fool
Oh baby, 'cause I told you baby

Santa Monica

In Santa Monica, in the wintertime, the lazy streets so undemanding
I walk into the crowd
In Santa Monica, you get your coffee from the coolest places on the promenade
Where people dress just so
Beauty so unavoidable, everywhere you turn it's there.
I sit and wonder what am I doing here?
But on the telephone line I am anyone, I am anything I want to be.
I could be a super model or Norman Mailer
And you wouldn't know the difference
Or would you?
In Santa Monica, all the people got modern names like Jake or Mandy
And modern bodies too
In Santa Monica, on the boulevard, you'll have to dodge those in-line skaters
Or they'll knock you down
I never felt so lonely
Never felt so out of place
I never wanted something more than this
But on the telephone line I am anyone,
I am anything I want to be
I could be a super model or Norman Mailer
And you wouldn't know the difference
On the telephone line I am any height,
I am any age I want to be
I could be a caped crusader, or space invader
And you wouldn't know the difference
Or would you?
