ORDINARY LIVES

There'll be one small light all over the world tonight.
The search will go on for the one.
It was love with no name
and we glowed in the sun.

There was one small dream,
incredible highs and lows,
what little we knew living ordinary lives (lives).
Made a dream for you, living ordinary lives (lives).

Ordinary people living ordinary lives.
Ordinary people living ordinary lives.

We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.
We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.

The clock on the wall keeps moving,
time stands still,
no matter how the dice may fall,
someone else always gets to call the number.

Say goodbye cruel world.
No pity no pain tonight.
Whatever the cost all is lost.
If this is love with no name,
then it's all in the stars.

Whether it's wrong (wrong) or right,
there's no one to blame no (no) lies.
What else could we do
living ordinary lives (lives)?
Made a dream for you,
living ordinary lives (lives).

Oh, oh. We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.
We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.
We were ordinary people.

What else could we do,
living ordinary lives (lives)?
Made a dream for you,
living ordinary lives (lives).

Oh, oh. We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.
We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.
We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.
We were ordinary people living ordinary lives.


ONE

I feel my heartbeat
when you run your fingers through my hair, oh yeah.
I can tell you I can feel you by my side
when you're not there, oh yeah.

Just as my life fades to darkness,
you make me see the light.
Show me that my search is over,
I pay the price, I pay the price.

I tell you someday,
baby, you and I should be one, one, oh yeah.
Do it always,
brighter than the eye can see, we hide the sun, oh yeah.

The taste of love is sweeter like honey on the vine,
like the wind that feeds the fire,
two souls become entwined.
Someday,
baby you and I should be one, one.

So I'm standing 'round this corner
tall enough to touch the New York sky, oh yeah.
My love is so blind
I just cannot hear or see the world go by, oh yeah.

Someone can love so completely,
one kiss should break the seal.
Truth can be stranger than fiction,
this love is real,
this love is real.

I tell you someday,
baby, you and I should be one, one.
Do it always,
brighter than the eye can see, we hide the sun, oh yeah.

Ah, we are one, we are one.

I will follow,
count on me, I'll never let you down, oh yeah.
My devotion,
if love is like an ocean, I will surely drown, oh yeah.

You'll be my only possession,
I'll be a slave to you.
We hold the power together,
just me and you,
just me and you.

I tell you someday (someday),
baby, you and I should be one, one, oh yeah.
Do it always (always),
brighter than the eye can see, we hide the sun, oh yeah.

I'll tell you someday (someday),
baby, you and I should be (you and I should be one) one, one.

Ah. Make somebody mine,
I go down on my knees,
you say love can be blind,
it's that hunger you feed.

You know my life is in your hands, (You know we must be strong)
and every breath you take is planned (We go into the night)
and all this love goes on forever. (and so now we are one.)

I'll tell you someday (someday),
baby, you and I should be one, one, oh yeah.
(I tell you) Do it always (always),
baby, you and I should be one (you and I should be), one, oh yeah.

I'll tell you someday (someday),
baby, you and I should be one, one, oh yeah...


BODYGUARD

It hurts me when you cry,
when you feel the love is gone.
Don't give up on us when you got so much to believe in.
And so I beg you please stay yeah.

Danger in the night,
a flame that never dies.
In a world of lonely faces
you need someone to survive,
a love like yours should never live alone.

Let me be your bodyguard, (I can be useful to you)
we can just get excited, s
top before we go too far.
Let me be your bodyguard, (Living in my protection)
we can just get ignited,
lost inside,
it's only you and me.

There's things you shouldn't do.
You lose your self-control.
Should the eyes of a perfect stranger
take you down to a new sensation?
Just turn back to me.

Don't wait till it's gone.
Don't go where you don't belong.
In a world of pain and sorrow
every wish is your command.
A heart like yours should always find a home, oh yeah.

I know the signs and I'm telling you you're living on borrowed time,
but a heart needs love like a flower needs rain,
like I'm making you mine.

Let me be your bodyguard, (I can be useful to you)
we can just get excited,
stop before we go too far.
Let me be your bodyguard. (Living in my protection)
we can just get ignited.

What we had never known all our lives,
I pray it's not too late,
I would die by your side my love,
I'm the life that you save.

In this world of pain and sorrow
every wish is your command,
a heart like yours should never live alone, yeah.

I used to dream of a special one
and now I feel it's coming true,
but I couldn't let go, I'm a jealous guy,
what you're putting me through.

Let me be your bodyguard, (I can be useful to you)
we can just get excited,
stop before we go too far.
Let me be your bodyguard. (Living in my protection)
we can just get ignited,
stop before we go too far...


IT'S MY NEIGHBORHOOD

Don't get too close to me, don't overreact,
you're not the enemy as a matter of fact,
you got your pretty face and you got any name you wore,
gonna stick by you, gonna stumble over what to do.

I want it, good loving, wanna be your plaything.
I want it, good loving, bring out the beast in me.
I want it, good loving,wanna make your heart sing,
in the shadows we are free, and I walk you through it.

It's my neighborhood,
that's where I belong.
You're in trouble if you
disagree with me.
It's my neighborhood,
that's where I belong,
you find out why.

It's my neighborhood,
that's where I belong.
You're in trouble if you
disagree with me.
It's my neighborhood,
that's where I belong,
you find out why.

So many tell you that you can't win.
It's a battle if you're lonely
or if you're starting over.
Two-fisted and fast on your feet
and you know there's something more
and the city kicks it out of you and..

I want it, good loving, wanna be your plaything.
I want it, good loving, bring out the worst in me.
I want it, good loving, wanna make your heart sing,
in the shadows we are free, and I walk you through it.

It's my neighborhood,
that's where I belong.
You're in trouble if (trouble) you
disagree with me.
It's my neighborhood,
that's where I belong,
you find out why.


TEARS

I started out to be the man behind the scenes
Knowing I was in above my head
For all that I could see I never saw the truth.
Now I'm alone.

Heaven only knows how much I'm missing you,
knowing I had heaven in my hands.

And there will be tears,
tears are mixed with rain.
Keeper of my flame.

Time and tide is on my side,
it stands forever.
There will be nights of love
and, yes, there will be tears.

I will not sleep tonight.
There will be tears tonight.
I will not sleep tonight.
There will be tears.

The silent telephone, the turning of the key.
You're still inside of me, I'm not ashamed.
For all that I can do, I can't forget your face.
I call your name.

Heaven only knows what I've been crying for,
what I'm crying for.
And all I've done to keep this love alive.

Even through my tears,
tears are mixed with rain.
Keeper of my flame.

I will pray you're on my side,
we stand forever.
There will be nights of love
and, yes, there will be tears.

I will not sleep tonight (oh oh).
There will be tears tonight.
I will not sleep tonight (oh).
There will be.

Soon there will be tears
rolling down my world.
Keeper of my flame.

Time and tide is on my side,
it stands forever.
There will be nights of love
And, yes, there will be tears

I will not sleep tonight.
There will be tears tonight
I will not sleep tonight.
There will be tears...


TOKYO NIGHTS

Ooh ooh
You're crossing the water
for eastern delights,
'cause now that you're gone
I feel like a stranger
in New York tonight.

And the rhythm was new to me.
Tokyo nights.
Well, she came in the night,
and she came in the night.

And the vision was true to me.
Tokyo nights.
Well, she came for the moment
and stayed till the end.

Ooh wee ah.
Take me to Tokyo.
Ooh wee ah.
Take me to Tokyo.

I was lonely in western days.
Tokyo nights.
Well, she took me away
by saving life

I was down in the rising sun.
Tokyo nights.
Well, I came for the moment and
stayed till the end.

Ooh wee ah
Take me to Tokyo.
Ooh wee ah.
Take me to Tokyo.


FLESH AND BLOOD

I'm not that someone who's got what you want.
I can do nothing but watch what you do.
You just want someone to kiss you good night,
but lips are never enough to get you through.
You stole my nights and you got your way,
now you got me dying inside, oh baby.

Ebony, don't walk out on me.
Listen to what I say.
Pick up the pieces of my life
into the night of day.

How do you break this heart of steel.
Nobody ever could.
Open the pages of my life.
I'm only flesh and blood.

I'll be your saviour but baby I swear
I'm not living my life over you.
Some satisfaction you get if you dare
but is it ever enough to get you through?
You stole my mind and you watch me fall.
Now you leave the scene of the crime, oh no.

Ebony, don't walk out on me.
I never thought you could.
I'm only what you make of me.
I'm only flesh and blood.
I'm only flesh and blood.

When you're gone,
you'll be leaving behind
a broken man with something to hide.
Oh, lost in the night in a town without pity,
you learn how to cry, you learn how to cry.

Ebony, don't walk out on me.
Listen to what I say (ooh),
Pick up the pieces of my life into the night of day (ooh).
How do you break this heart of steel?
Nobody ever could (ooh).
Open the pages of my life,
I'm only flesh and blood (ooh).

Gone are the days that came and went.
Houses are made of wood (ooh).
Live in a world of sand and stone.
I'm only flesh and blood (ooh).

Ebony, don't walk out on me.
I never thought you could.
I'm only what you make of me.
I'm only flesh and blood.


WISH YOU WERE HERE

Oooooooh
You're living your life
in somebody else's heart.
My love is as strong
as oceans are far apart.

A summer song
keeps playing in my brain,
and I feel you
and I see your face again.
There's no escape,
I lost everything
in losing you.

Ah I wish you were here,
drying these tears I cry.
They were good times
and I wish you were here
and calling my name,
but you're dealing with a man insane, the cost,
how hopelessly I'm lost,
I tried to throw our love away
and I can't let go.

And so I awake
in somebody else's dream.
(It's not what it seems)
It's only a lie,
I've yet to decide who's real.

The blood red rose will never never die,
it'll burn like a flame
in the dark of the night.
I'm not afraid,
I'd give everything
if you hear me there.

Ahh I wish you were here,
drying these tears I cry.
They were good times,
it's that time of year
for being alone
but you're dealing with a heart of stone,
try to kiss and say goodbye,
try to throw our love away
and that storm will blow.

Ooooh Wish you were here.
Ooooh Wish you were here.

'Cause you're dealing with a heart of stone,
try to kiss and say goodbye,
try to throw our love away
and I can't let go.

They were good times
and I wish you were here,
yes, I wish you were here.


HOUSE OF SHAME

First you say you needed me,
then you give me sympathy.
They say good girls never win.
Something good in giving in.
How do I get through to you?
You must be made of stone.

ust when I was safe and sound.
Love, you built a wall around.
You take a hard line attitude.
Time to send me back to school.
Or take me, take me to your ...

...house of shame,
easy on your body when you got no name.
Hold me like you know me,
I'm a falling star,
catch me if you can,
show me the way inside.

You can knock on any door.
I know what I'm looking for.
Red light, hit and run.
Time to turn the engine on.
Pretty girl lives all alone.
I must be going home.

Hot as hell and cold as ice.
Everything I sacrifice.
I got to pick up on what you do.
I just can't get over you.
You take me, take me to your...
.
..house of shame,
easy on your body when you got no name.
Hold me like you know me,
I'm a falling star,
catch me if you can,
show me the way inside.

Tell me what you really want from life,
loving you, darling,
you got me infatuated,
good love is not for sale,
I nearly gave myself away.

Pretty girl lives all alone,
take me to your, take me to your
house of shame,
easy on your body when you got no name.
Hold me like you know me,
I'm a falling star,
catch me if you can,
show me the way inside.


WILL YOU EVER LET ME

I've come to feel that you're a blessing in disguise,
find a way of making sure.
Is what you show to me the devil in your eyes?
Are you the killer or the cure?

I could be the fire you start
at just the mention of your name.
I rise and I rise up to heaven, my love,
and let you shoot me down in flames.

You don't take me serious,
too insane to see you're just too good to be true,
and I don't sympathise with those
who crawl home to you.

Your head is on the line, you find no other love
and I would go through hell for you.
Tell me, will you ever let me in?
Tell me, will you ever let me in?

Maybe the trick is to be taken by surprise,
And, lady, be wise, beware.
The way to make you make that final sacrifice,
the dream is real for those who dare.

I will redefine your life.
We remember till we die
when love is in motion who needs
more than this,
and soon we know what passion is
all is fair in love and war.

It's what I'm fighting for, but you're just too good
to be true,
and I don't sympathise with those
who crawl home to you.

Your head is on the line, you find no other love
and I would go through hell for you.
Tell me, will you ever let me in?
Tell me, will you ever let me in?

I will be the fire you start
at just the mention of your name.
All is fair in love and war,
you know what I'm fighting for,
love has shot me serious,
right between the eyes,
you're just too good
to be true,
and I don't sympathise with those
who crawl home to you.

Your head is on the line, you find no other love
and I would go through hell for you.
Tell me, will you ever let me in?
Tell me, will you ever let me in?


WING AND A PRAYER

Lovers in ancient times.

Now it begins,
I see it in your eyes.
And I know how you feel,
you long to touch the sky.

The flame of life,
you let it eat your heart out every night,
but you're not alone.

This is your world.
This is your world.

Lovers in ancient times,
caught in the fire,
only the strong survive.

How can we face tonight (tomorrow)?
Live an illusion,
don't let it fade and die.

Something deep inside you,
a wing and a prayer will guide you.
Something deep inside you.

Something deep inside you,
a wing and a prayer will guide you.
Something deep inside you.

Go now, girl, don't look back.
This is your one big chance.
I place my fingers to your lips
and I tell you my love flies with you
on a wing and a prayer,
on a wing and a prayer.

No muscle and bones,
rhythm is the key.
There's everything to play for,
you're everything to me.

The game of life,
win it and your love comes tumbling down.
You'll never be alone.
There we are, there we are.

This is your world.
This is your world.

Lovers in ancient times,
caught in the fire,
only the strong survive.

How can we face tonight (tomorrow)?
Live an illusion,
don't let it fade and die.

Something deep inside you,
a wing and a prayer will guide you.
Something deep inside you...
