LIVING EYES (1981)

Living eyes / He's a liar / Paradise / Don't fall in love with me / Soldiers / I still love you / Wildflower / Nothing could be good / Cryin' everyday / Be who you are


LIVING EYES

Would you believe me if I told you your tomorrow is my yesterday?
But be alive.
I know that we will,
the world keeps on moving but I'm holding still.

In the beginning, I was far away and praying for my destiny,
that would arrive,
the moment you're born,
for we will be here when the miracle comes.

Living eyes,
when under the sun don't cry,
no war in my mind,
the state of my heart.
Living eyes,
when out in the rain will fall,
the day I deny the face of my love.

We are of age, we are in time,
we are forever,
right now when the power is mine.
I leave you heaven and the earth,
I leave you never,
and living to love is the reason we shine.

Well, I been over, I've been under,
I don't own a dream to analyse,
but living eyes,
you know that I do
believe in the soul and the magic of you.

Living eyes,
when under the sun don't cry,
no war in my mind,
the state of my heart.
Living eyes,
when out in the rain will fall,
the day I deny the face of my love.

We are of age, we are in time,
we are forever,
right now when the power is mine.
I leave you heaven and the earth,
I leave you never,
and living to love is the reason we shine.

Living eyes,
when under the sun don't cry..

HE'S A LIAR

I was stood by the light as I looked through your window
with the greatest intention not meaning to see,
I was there in the dark and I saw you together,
you were up in his arms, I was down on my knees.

Get the cards on the table,
no need to pretend,
you've got to be cruel to be kind,
he can sell you his love and you know you will pay, but

he's a liar,
he's a liar, and I should know.
Liar, he's a liar and I should know (aaah).

Well, they told me I fell but I just don't remember,
I was standing face down, they were there at my feet.
There was smoke in the air and the sweet smell of leather,
I was out through the window and down in the street.

Well, I'm cold and I'm hungry but I'm still alive,
and it's not how I want it to be,
there's a hand on my shoulder,
he said I'll survive, but

he's a liar,
he's a liar, and I should know.
He's a liar, and I should know (aaah).

Was it not for the man that was blocking the drive,
was it not for the red limousine,
I'd be millions of miles from the scene of the crime,
and somehow in this madness believe she was mine, but

I'm a liar,
he's a liar, and I should know.
Liar, he's a liar, and I’d know (aaah).
He's a liar...


PARADISE

Lonely people gathering there to be one,
gonna be the last time wasted,
gonna be seen to be gone.
Run a mile for the minute,
gonna mind another day without you in it.

And you,
you promised me paradise,
don't go back on your word,
no, you, you promised me paradise.

All my days of loving you under my skin.
Gonna be a wild, wild world
when nobody wants to give in.
Gonna call me on the hour,
gonna mind if I don't hear it,
I would hate to be you.

You promised me paradise,
don't go back on your word,
no, you, you promised me paradise.

Can you tell me if there's gonna be another reason to cry?
Will I be the last to know?
Unless we make another way of doing what we do,
we don't believe it anymore,
will I be the one to cry?

Problems, problems haunting me,
circle my head.
Gonna be a wild world,
let me hide away under your bed.
Run a mile for the minute,
gonna mind another day without you in it.

And you,
you promised me paradise,
don't go back on your word,
no, you, you promised me paradise,
you promised me paradise.
Ah.. Ah.. Ah... Ah...
You promised me paradise
Ah... ah..


DON'T FALL IN LOVE WITH ME

Don't fall in love with me baby,
it's a love that just won't last,
your eyes are looking out at the future
but you see the past.

You know love was made for a dreamer,
when the dream is out of sight,
well, all you're gonna get in the morning
is a lonely night.
Gonna be a lonely night,
nothing but a lonely night.

Saving it all
for something wild and wonderful,
holding it down,
there's gotta be another horizon.

Keep it inside,
don't throw away your precious love,
'cause if you need to be free you can take it,
not a prison of love that you make it.

Don't fall in love with me baby,
it's a love that just can't last,
your eyes are looking out at the future
but you see the past.

You know hearts were made to be broken
and your love has broken mine,
now all your gonna get in the morning is a lonely night.
Gonna be a lonely night,
nothing but a lonely night,
gonna be a lonely night.

You're gonna be blue, blue.
Gonna be a lonely night,
nothing but a lonely night,
gonna be a lonely night.

Saving it all
for something wild and wonderful,
holding it down,
ooh, there's gotta be another horizon.

Keep it inside,
don't throw away your precious love,
'cause if you need to be free you can take it,
not a prison of love that you make it.

Don't fall in love with me baby,
it's a love that just can't last,
your eyes are looking out at the future
but you see the past.

You know love was made for a dreamer
and your love has broken mine,
now all you're gonna get in the morning is a lonely night.
Gonna be a lonely night,
nothing but a lonely night,
gonna be a lonely night.

You're gonna be blue.
Gonna be a lonely night,
nothing but a lonely night,
gonna be a lonely night.

You're gonna be blue.
Gonna be a lonely night,
nothing but a lonely night,
gonna be a lonely night.


SOLDIERS

I memorise, I walk in line,
carry my sacrifice for the sake of the millions.
All night you be the light on the water,
you be the pride and the sorrow,
shower your love to me there.

Summer died before the rain,
unify every soul together be lonely.
Ride on, follow me to the sunrise,
save me the world that is broken,
nothing but love to be there.

Soldiers, father and son,
we're soldiers, nowhere to run,
we fight or we die,
for what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, mother and child,
we're soldiers, the meek and the mild,
we stand or we fall.

Never mind, dry your eyes,
you'll never be far away,
forever beside me.
Hold out, I will be your tomorrow,
I will walk through the fire,
nothing but love to be there.

Soldiers, father and son,
we're soldiers, nowhere to run,
we fight or we die,
for what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, mother and child,
we're soldiers, the meek and the mild,
we stand or we fall.

I'm a little misunderstood,
living all the daydreams and nightmares
don't do me no good.
I'm a little bit on the moon
but when the word is you love me
no moment is too soon.

All night give me the light on the water,
give me the pride and the sorrow,
shower your love to me there.

Soldiers, father and son,
we're soldiers, nowhere to run,
we fight or we die,
for what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, mother and child,
we're soldiers, the meek and the mild,
we stand or we fall.

Soldiers, father and son,
we're soldiers, nowhere to run,
we fight or we die,
for what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, mother and child,
we're soldiers, the meek and the mild,
we stand or we fall.
For what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, father and son,
we're soldiers, nowhere to run,
we fight or we die,
for what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, mother and child,
we're soldiers, the meek and the mild,
we stand or we fall.
For what are we living for?
Boys never cry.

Soldiers, father and son,
we're soldiers...


I STILL LOVE YOU

Close your eyes, do what you wanna,
baby, how can I wait much longer?
Make it hard to believe it happened to me.

Morning comes too late tomorrow,
all you lose is the dream you borrow,
all you got is a soul that's born to be free.

And cries to the wind,
waiting for you,
my dream will find you someday,
I stand beside my vision of you
and have you loving me.

I still love you, aah.
I still love you, aah.

Though you're my imagination,
you be there when we find salvation,
only then will there be no reason to hide.

Stormy night out in the heaven,
I believe in the true forever,
there's a bright new star when somebody dies.

I cry to the wind,
waiting for you,
sweet love returning someday,
the day you learn love happened to you
you will be here with me.

I still love you, aah (I still love you, I still love you)
I still love you, aah (I love you, I love you)
I'll be waiting for you,
sweet love returning someday,
the day you learn love happened to you
you will be here with me.

I still love you, aah (I still love you, I still love you)
I still love you, aah (I still love you, I still love you)...


WILDFLOWER

Wildflower,
sacrifice everything in a wonderland that you know.
It's crazy that I'm clear out of my mind,
a wonderful place to be.

Wildflower,
sweet as the morning light,
if I blink an eye, will you go?
I'm starting to care much more than I dare,
a wonderful thing to see.
And what do we know?

First say you love me and then say you leave me
but we never say goodbye.
God, you're an angel
but even an angel must choose.
Someone will hurt you and when you stop running
there's only this love of mine.

Wildflower,
sacrifice everything in a wonderland that you know.
If older is wise,
one look in your eyes.
I'm younger than I should be
and only time
waiting for you to grow.

First say you love me and then say you'll leave me
but we never say goodbye.
God, you're an angel
but only an angel must choose.
Someone will hurt you and when you stop running
there's only this love of mine.

Wildflower,
sacrifice everything in a wonderland that you know.
If older is wise,
one look in your eyes.
I'm younger than I should be
and only time
waiting for you to grow.


NOTHING COULD BE GOOD

Baby, when there's only one embrace,
one is just enough for two.
When do I learn young fingers get burned?
Never, my love.
Aah.

And when everyone has been a friend,
windy day we never knew,
now nothing can stand the way it was planned,
no, baby,
nothing could be good as,
nothing could be good as loving you.

Even though you're far away,
your movie plays in my mind,
your world is what you see,
let it be me.

And I can make you warm at night
but I need to be sure you got love enough to know.
Aah, never, never.

And when every cloud has lost its glow,
raining on my avenue.
When do I hide that nothing inside?
When, baby,
nothing could be good as,
nothing could be good as loving you.

Even though you're far way, your movie plays in my mind,
your world is what you see,
let it be me.

And I can make you warm at night
but I need to be sure you got love enough to know.
Aah, oh, never, never.

And when everyone has gone away,
sing to the almighty if it's what you need to do,
oh, the world is true,
and, baby, nothing could be good as,
nothing could be good as loving you,
as loving you, love, love,
as loving you, love, love...


CRYIN' EVERY DAY

I wasn't born to be alone
that was a lesson I was shown,
to know that love was just a lie,
I ran away to think it over
but it's over and I try to take a stand on what is real,
someone to show me how to feel,
I'm like a shadow in the night,
I'm like a river in an ocean,
I'm a flame without a light.

And now I'm cryin' every day,
and I've been cryin' every day,
and I've been thinking of your love,
I keep turning, I keep turning,
I keep turning, I keep turning.
Well, your love was a cathedral and I came down here to pray
and now I'm cryin' every day.

Can there be any wonder why to be living under?
Love is a revelation only few can share.
I could be a mountain strong but the pain about you
long as I live without you,
I would still be there.
I wanna die, die away,
never love, never cry.

And I've been walking in the rain,
and I've been hanging on a dream,
all the faces and the places that our love has ever been.

Now I'm cryin' every day,
and I've been cryin' every day,
and I've been thinking of your love,
I keep turning, I keep turning,
I keep turning, I keep turning.
Well, your love was a cathedral and I came down here to pray
and now I'm cryin' every day.

Can there be any wonder why to be living under?
Love is a revelation only few can share.
I could be a mountain strong but the pain about you
long as I live without you, I would still be there.
I wanna die, die away,
never love, never cry.

I wasn't born to be a fool but I'm a fool to be around,
I'm a man without a country, I'm a king without a crown,
and then you're throwing me away,
another world, another time,
but if anyone belongs to anybody, you were mine.

And I'm cryin' every day,
you know I've been cryin' every day,
and I keep thinking of your love,
I keep turning, I keep turning,
I keep turning, I keep turning,
well, your love was a cathedral and I came down here to pray,
and now I'm cryin' everyday,
I'm cryin', cryin',
I'm cryin' for your love,
I keep thinking of your love...


BE WHO YOU ARE

Be who you are,
don't ever change.
The world was made to measure for your smile,
so smile.

Those crazy dreams
we threw, we threw away,
I never been alone with you,
I never could.

They say
that love will find a way,
and love will never be set free.
And I won't ever let you be,
you could not understand,
you never will.

Be who you are,
I bless, I bless your name.
And all that summer madness caused the rain.
And we, we.

Oh, oh, oh.
The glory that we made,
my love will grace the halls of time,
a love that never can be mine.
You could not love me then
I love you still.

Be who you are,
seize life and find a way,
and I will be the shadow loving who you are,
be who you are.
We were.
