SYSTEM OF LOVE

Now you don't know what you have done.
You made me what I thought I could never be.
Out of the flames with my hands untied.
No time to grieve for the loss.

Hearts that come together for the first time.
Sparks that fly around the room.
Lets face it I'm dealing with something I don't understand.
But I'll kill you if you stop too soon.

Too tight to fight the system of love.
You get to try what others only dream of.
Right to the body you get what you want.
Just once over my love
I make your knees bend.

It's the fire of faith,
heart of the soul.
I can be your system if you lose control.
I'l plug into you.
I know how to love you, girl, let me try.
Come together we electrify.
System of love, system of love.
Give a little.

Now you don't know what it is since you touched me.
My world has changed.
You're the one that I live and breathe for.
You and me, baby, gone insane.

Loving arms that gotta hold on to someone.
I can see you watching me.
Is that what you want?

State to state,
a matter of time
that you may be slipping but you're too, too, too...

too tight to fight the system of love.
You get to try what others only dream of.
Right to the body you get what you want.
Just once over my love
I'll make your nose bleed.

And it's all for the love,
heart of the light.
I can be your system,
give me just one night.
I'l climb up to you.

I know how to love,
just let me try.
We come together, baby,
we electrify.

And it's all for the love,
heart of the light.
I can be your system,
give me just one night.
I'll climb up to you.

I know how to love you,
just let me try.
We come together, baby,
we electrify.

System of love, system of love.
Give a little....


CHILDHOOD DAYS (extended version)

Gone, gone childhood days.
Gone, gone childhood days.
Gone, gone childhood days.
Gone, gone childhood days.

Gone, gone childhood days.
Gone in so many ways.
In all my children you can see
what old aquaintance means to me.

Dream is mine and here it stays,
all wrapped up in my childhood days.

And it echoes down the mountainside.
People live and people die.
Though I love you for always.
I lost you in my childhood days.

Old dogs and worn out shoes.
Even children sing the blues.
How we must endure it all
to save God's creatures great and small.

All my world is there and then
the voices come to me again.
And they echo down the mountainside.
People live and people die.
I still can see my daddy's face,
oh Lord, this is a lonely place.

Fast train, train too slow.
Maybe you got no place to go.
Let me set your spirit free.
It's crazy but you comfort me.


We share together what we found.
The force of love is all around.
And it echoes down the mountainside.
Little bit of soul we hide.
Find us lost without a trace,
oh Lord, this is a lonely place.

Gone gone childhood days
Gone gone childhood days
Gone gone childhood days
Gone gone childhood days
Gone in so many ways.

In all my children you can see
what old aquaintance means to me.
Dream is mine and here it stays,
all wrapped up in my childhood days.

And it echoes down the mountainside.
People live and people die.
Though I love you for always.
I lost you in my childhood days.


MY ETERNAL LOVE

I gave you something for nothing, my love.
This apparition of living your lie.
I had the power but you stole control, my love.
I need you close to me I can't deny.

It's your night world.
Places I've never known.
All of the wonders lay before me.
I pray this heaven never stops.

It's your night world.
Things are revealed to me.
And all the arms cannot hold you.

I will see your face in the morning sunrise.
Hear your crying every lonely winter long.
I need your body and soul to get me through.
Holding me over you.

Don't tell me that I came one love too late.
No other woman would I place so high above.
I'll take the little that I get in return for
my eternal love.

When you're lonely, do you cry, baby, cry.
What do they give you when the dream is not enough?
This is the hour and the candles are burning,
my eternal love, my eternal love.

I get to watch you when the moon is full.
Time to love you when the others are gone.
Though what I follow may be fictional,
I need to be with you or I may die.


In your night world,
doors that are open wide.
Then I can make my promise to you.

You will hear my voice in the mountain thunder.
Feel me loving you across the universe.
And when the pieces are whole,
there's me and you, you and me eternally.

I may be broken but I try, baby, try.
Whatever gets you are the things that I must do.
I'd like to hit you with a little of my
eternal love for you.

I will be with you when my sweet baby cries.
You let me give you what the dream is worthy of.
This is the hour and the candles are burning,
my eternal love,
my eternal love,
my eternal love.

Don't tell me that I came one love too late.
No other woman would I place so high above.
I'll take the little that I get in return for
my eternal love.

I may be lonely but I'll try, baby, try.
You let me give you what the dream is worthy of.
This is the hour and the candles are burning,
my eternal love.


I will be with you when you cry, baby, cry.
You let me give you what the dream is worthy of.
I'll take the little that...

 

MOONLIGHT MADNESS

It's the midnight hour and I wish you were here.
Somebody following me,
I just can't sleep alone.

I figure it's the way I am,
or a thing that happened to me
somewhere in my childhood.

I'm all that I could ever be in your arms.
It's like I can't imagine life without you.

But all my women cry
and all my heroes die,

or we could try a little
moonlight madness.
We could do the strangest things.
Try a little moonlight madness.
Let someone in your dreams.

Or we could try a little
moonlight madness.
Living on the same old lies.
We should not try to find the meaning.
Let history decide.

Whether it's right or wrong to give you,
what I may give you?
How do we learn to do the things?
We never do.

Let me try a little
moonlight madness
on you.

I cry with a smile and I laugh with a tear.
I struggle but the body won't move.
And the quicksand pulls me down.

I wanna be the man that you think I am.
I follow in the steps of the one
who knows the darkness well.

And you can get me by your side
by talking to me with your eyes.
Not breaking promises.

I'm howling at the moon.
I'm howling,
howling at the moon.

Or we could try a little
moonlight madness.
We could do the strangest things.
Try a little something different.
The mystery remains.

Whether it's right or wrong to love each other.
Yearning in the brain for something new.
Let me try a little
moonlight madness.
Try a little
moonlight madness.
Try a little
moonlight madness
on you.


WHERE TOMORROW IS

She's gone.
I'm a victim of love.
And I reach for her cry.
There's no perception of time.
She's out of my world and I'm alone.

The city sleeps, she comes, she goes.
She loves another one.

And I got no chance, no time.
Ain't nothing stops the rain but the sunshine.
I can see nobody, tell me where my angel goes.
I say the devil knows.

I'm lost.
No sky above me.
No earth below me.
Show me where tomorrow is and teach me to see.
Someone else may cry for me, could be.
Show me where tomorrow is 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is.

Suspicion.
The lies on your lips and your tenderness.
I lie in wait for the gift of her pain.
She'll never be mine and I'm all alone.
And through a stranger, lives can change
and hearts can overcome.

But I need her face, so young.
Ain't nothing stops the fire and it burns on.
Too late now she tells me.
We cannot live this lie.
She came home to say goodbye.

I'm lost.
No sky above me.
No earth below me.
Show me where tomorrow is and teach me to see.
Someone else may cry for me, could be.
Show me where tomorrow is, 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is, 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is.

I must go on.
Whatever the heart must take.
I'll keep my love alive.
And all you got is freedom.
It ain't enough.

'Cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is, 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is, 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is, 'cause I don't know.
Show me where tomorrow is....


CHAIN REACTION

You took a mystery and made me want it.
You got a pedestal and put me on it.
You made me love you out of feeling nothing.
Something that you do.

And I was there and not dancing with anyone.
You took a little, then you took me over.
You set your mark on stealing my heart away.
Crying, trying, anything for you.

I'm in the middle of a chain reaction.
You give me all the after midnight action.
I wanna get you where I can
let you make all that love to me.

I'm on a journey for the inspiration
to anywhere and there ain't no salvation.
I need you to get me nearer to you.
So you can set me free.

We talk about love, love, love.
We talk about love.
We talk about love, love, love.
We talk about love.

You make me tremble when your hand moves lower.
You taste a little then you swallow slower.
Nature has a way of yielding treasure.
Pleasure made for you, oh.

You gotta plan, your future is on the run.
Shine a light for the whole world over.
You never find your love if you hide away.
Crying, dying, all you gotta do is...

...Get in the middle of a chain reaction.
You get a medal when you're lost in action.
I wanna get your love all ready for the sweet sensation.
Instant radiation.

You let me hold you for the first explosion.
We get a picture of our love in motion.
My arms will cover, my lips will smother you.
With no more left to say.

We talk about love, love, love.
We talk about love.

You let me hold you for the first explosion.
My arms will cover you.

All you gotta do is get in the middle of a chain reaction.
You get a medal when you're lost in action.
Don't pass me by.
I wanna get your love all ready for the chain reaction ...


COVER YOU

You could read her lips well as I was able.
She was into taking you where you ain't been .
I was looking in at the stroke of twelve.
She came in the back door.
You could see her climb the stairs.
And the two of us, we wait, we wait.

I'll cover you, girl I cover you.
Cover you with...

Cover you with kisses.
Shower you with love.
Twist you up and turn you 'round.
All night, all night.

Cover you with kisses.
Taste you with my tongue.
Live on itchy fingers.
All night long, all night.

You could see her legs underneath the table.
You could see the burn was on when she moved on you.
I think I went insane.
When the flesh is weak
the more that we discover.
If we only trust just the two of us.
You play me, you play me.

I'll cover you, girl I cover you.
Cover you with ....

Cover you with kisses.
Taste you with my tongue.
Live on itchy fingers.
All night long, all night.

Born to make love she was.
To get up you go down.
It's easy.

Cover you with kisses.
Shower you with love.
Twist you up and turn you 'round.
All night, all night.

Cover you with kisses.
Taste you with my tongue.
Live on itchy fingers.
All night long, all night.


NOT IN LOVE AT ALL

I passed the stage of sympathy.
No longer living on the pain.
Oh baby.

Though I learned my lesson well,
you got me with your magic spell.
I'm back in love again.

I let you go for what you are.
Should never be restrained.
I simply set you free.

You found me lost without you, girl.
And the love you say was missing,
a love that brightens up the night.

You'll never be short of the reasons.
You can rely on all you need.
Never be lost inside each other.

And you know by the second time you fall,
you were not in love at all.

Not in love at all,
like the precious love that grows.

You made my life on earth like I was
never born before you.
I got the wings of love
to rise above the storm.

But we were not in love.
Sad to say we're not in love.
Not in love at all.

How did you get to be a mine of information?
I'll be the one that puts you wise.
You know it's not just that I want to dry
any little tear you cry.
I'm in love with you, baby.

We'll never see all of the seasons.
You can be my eternity.
Never be lost.
To cry myself to sleep in sorrow.

We're not in love at all
like the precious love that grows.

And you and I will be
a story with no happy ending.
Oh baby, this I vow.
The greatest love you will recall,
that we were not in love.
Sad to say we're not in love.
Not in love at all.

Then, why do I cry
(we are not in love at all.)
if we are not in love at all?
(we are n(Not, Not in love at all.)ot in love at all.)

I just don't sleep at night.
(We are ot in love at all.)...

 

LETTING GO

A child
that hides behind a chair,
almost afraid to grow
without you there.
Whisper words that make you see
what you've come to mean to me.

A voice
that rises from the heart,
the hunger that seizes me
and tears my soul apart.
And serving only to renew
how I came to feel for you.

Through your love I'd seen
forever.
We became as one.
I never saw you turn away.
My love was blind.

You call me when your storm is over.
Crying over love that I can give you.
When the night is the colder.
Holding on to me.

'Cause it's so hard letting go.
And it's so hard not to cry.
With your face that lies,
you memorize
the reason why.

And when the  love is gone
then one of us will know
it's so hard letting go.

Foolish that I still believe
that love should never die.
It makes me cry to witness
where the story ends.

All the lovers in the world will
echo all the words that I will leave you,
When the night is lonely
only goes to show...

...that it's so hard letting go.
And it's so hard not to cry.
And I kneel for yesterday,
when you were mine.

And when the love is gone,
then one of us will know
it's so hard letting go.
