Boys fo fall in love / In your diary / Robot / Rebecca / Secret agent / Livin' in another world / X-ray eyes / King of fools / Diamonds.

 
BOYS DO FALL IN LOVE

Baby said you had to be a lover,
one way or the other,
nobody wins without once giving in,
so don't cry now, don't cry now.

Love is just a game you played in high school.
Girls know how to be cruel.
Most of the time girls are cruel to be kind.
so don't cry now, don't cry now.

And we try to be cool as we dance in a crowded room,
at the end of the day, making love to a paper moon.

She said boys do fall in love, they make time,
they get love on a Saturday night.
And she said hearts beat as they dance
in the street to a radio, oh.

Boys fall in love.
Baby knows I like to be excited.
No one wants to fight it.
It's getting late so I'll just demonstrate.
Don't cry now, don't cry now.

And we try to be cool as we dance in a crowded room.
At the end of the day, making love to a paper moon.

And she said boys do fall in love, they make love,
they get love on a Saturday night.
And she said hearts beat as they dance
in the street to a radio, oh.

Oh, boys do fall in love, they make time (they make time),
they get love on a Saturday night.
And she said hearts beat as they dance
in the street to a radio.

Oh, boys fall in love.
Boys, boys, oh, boys, boys, boys, oh.
Boys, boys, boys, oh.
Boys, boys, boys, boys.
Boys do fall in love, ...
 


IN YOUR DIARY

Oh girl, I want to stay around.
But you don't want to see.
You say I let you down.
Oh girl, it's such a tragedy.
But you don't want to see.
You say I let you down.

All those crazy long gone summer days we used to play.
All the memories holding me, I wanna be....

in your diary, oh,
in your diary, ooh,
in your diary, whoa,
you didn't mention,
you didn't mention,
you didn't mention my name.

No mercy for the lonely man.
You got to give a damn.
Don't let me stumble in the rain.
I lay it down, it's all in black and white.
It's in the book you write.
And I don't even see my name.
All the years we've travelled
through the heaven and the stars.
All the memories holding me. And now I see...

in your diary, oh,
in your diary, ooh,
in your diary, whoa,
you didn't mention, you didn't mention,
you didn't mention my name.

In your diary, oh,
in your diary, ooh,
in your diary, whoa,
you didn't mention,
you didn't mention my name.

(break)

Oh, in your diary,
oh, in your diary,
now I realize, whoa
you didn't mention,
you didn't mention.

Just one look in your diary
tells me that you were oh so wrong.
You know I played along,
I know I played along.

You didn't mention,
you didn't mention my name.

Just one look in your diary
tells me that you were oh so wrong.
I played along,
you know I played along.

You didn't mention,
you didn't mention my name.

In your diary.....

REBECCA

In my mind I talk about Rebecca, suddenly so fine.
In my mind the visions of Rebecca, suddenly she's mine.
All night, seems she put a spell on me, oh yeah.
All night, gonna be the death of me
I go out and get her.

Rebecca, you're dreaming out loud.
Rebecca, you got your head in the clouds.
You're saving yourself from someone.
Rebecca hanging on tight.
Waiting for Rebecca dancing in the dark.

Satin and lace, she's so fine and mellow,
creature from the stars.
So wrong, running with Rebecca now, oh yeah.
So wrong, gonna be the death of me.
I'll go out and get her.

Rebecca, you're dreaming out loud.
Rebecca, you got your head in the clouds, all right.
You're saving yourself for someone, Rebecca.

Rebecca, you're running away.
Rebecca, you can't face the day, all right,
'cause you only live for the night.

Rebecca, you're always running around.
Ooh, talk about Rebecca's eyes
everything you fantasize.

Well, she drag you down to earth.
She's the devil in disguise.
Break you down to size.

Rebecca, you're dreaming out loud.
Rebecca, you got your head in the clouds, all right.
You only live for the night, Rebecca.

Rebecca, you're dreaming out loud.
Rebecca, you got your head in the clouds, all right.
Saving yourself for someone, Rebecca.


SECRET AGENT

I grabbed my hat and I went walking in the rainy night.
My world turned upside down.
I heard the roaring of the engines of a DC3.
I'm Casablanca bound.

The stewardess was standing staring in a fashion
that could only take my breath away.
The pilot's voice came on the intercom and
told me he was working for the CIA.

Oh...
And he's lost in a dangerous world.

So keep on running, running in the black of night,
secret agent,
Just keep on running, running at the speed of light,
secret agent.

Oh...
Oh...

Ooh. And three days later I was woken by a lady in black.
She took my photograph.
And in the safety of the shadows
threw her cameras down the elevator shaft.

She ran and stumbled in the darkness of the empty streets.
My job had just begun.
And without a warning I was shaken by a blinding light.
Didn't see the gun.

Oh....
And he's lost in a dangerous world, ooh.

So keep on running, running in the black of night,
it's your secret agent.
Just keep on running, running like the speed of light,
it's your secret agent.

Oh...
Oh...

Oh oh secret agent
Oh oh secret agent, agent.

Look out.

So keep on running, running till you get away.
You're a secret agent.

So keep on running, running in the black of night.
You're a secret agent.

So keep on running, running in the black of night .
You're a secret agent

Just keep on running, running like the speed of light.
'Cause you're a secret agent.

Just keep on running, running till the break of day.
'Cause you're a secret agent.

Just keep on running, running till you get away.
'Cause you're a secret agent.
 


LIVING IN ANOTHER WORLD

Living in another world.
Living in another world.

I had a special dream tonight,
I heard an angel call.
I kissed a girl from India,
I saw the China wall.

If men are men and mice are blind,
they'll never see the sun.
And if the sun should go away,
I'll find another one.

Oh what am I (There's no simple answer)
Oh what am I now (Love is just a mystery)
Oh what am I (No one lives forever)
Oh what am I now (You'll go down in history)

Living in another world, whoa, whoa,
living in another world, oh, oh.

I'm gonna change your life tonight,
a secret destiny.
I'm slipping in the twilight zone,
where everything is free.

We got the planes, the factories,
the strength of Hercules.
I'm living like a superstar
upon the silver screen.

Oh what am I (Universal person)
Oh what am I now (Please conserve your energy)
Oh what am I (Cable television)
Oh what am I now (You'll go mad eventually)

Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, oh, oh. Oh oh.

Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, oh oh. Oh oh.

Oh what am I (One suburban complex)
Oh what am I now (Check the Dow Jones index)
Oh what am I (Journey incognito)
Oh what am I now (No one cares about you)

When you're living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, oh oh. Oh oh.
Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, oh oh. Oh oh.
Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
Living in another world, whoa, whoa.
 


X-RAY EYES

I got a story to relate.
I'm sure you sympathize.
There's something quite peculiar
about my baby's eyes.

Well, she can see through any wall,
and through the clothes you wear.
It doesn't matter where you go.
So boy, you best beware.

I wish I was invisible, oh,
then I'd be untouchable, ooh,
having fun with all the girls, oh.
Gonna have to hide her in a movie show, oh.

She's got x-ray eyes, she's got x-rays,
she's got x-ray eyes, oh no,
she's got x-ray eyes, she's got,
she's got x-ray eyes.

She's kind of supernatural,
a human laserbeam,
s magical phenomenon
that penetrates my dreams.

And when I'm sleeping late at night,
dreaming in my bed,
she comes to me with infrared eyes
and sees inside my head.

I wish I was invisible, oh,
then I'd be untouchable, oh,
having fun with all the girls, oh.
Don't let her sit beside you in a movie show, oh.

She's got x-ray eyes, you can't stand,
she's got x-ray eyes, oh no,
she's got x-ray eyes, you know she's got you nude,
she's got x-ray eyes, oh no.

Ah-ee-ah...

I wish I had a time machine, ooh
try another century, ooh.
Now I am a prisoner, oh.
But if I try to run, she'd turn me into stone, oh.

She's got x-ray eyes, she's got x-ray eyes,
she's got x-ray eyes, yeah,
she's got x-ray eyes, oh no,
she's got x-ray eyes, oh no...
 


KING OF FOOLS

Alright, I don't mind,
having fun is my pre-occupation.
I don't mind
giving it all away, oh baby.

Alright, the love you had has gone away
(alright) alright (alright).
Slow down, you'll live to love another day
(alright ) alright (alright).

A-ha king of fools,
don't live by the golden rules.
A-ha king of fools
tonight, tonight.

Alright, love is blind
and people say that love is an illusion.
I don't mind
giving it all away, oh baby.

Alright, the love you had has gone away
(alright) alright (alright).
Slow down, you'll live to love another day
(alright) alright (alright).

Time out for the king of fools.
Step right up for the king of fools

A-ha king of fools,
don't live by the golden rules.
Ah-ha king of fools
tonight, tonight.

A-ha prince of nights,
just lives for the New York lights.
A-ha king of fools
tonight, tonight.

(break)

A-ha king of fools,
don't live by the golden rules.
A-ha king of fools

A-ha prince of nights,
just lives for the New York lights.
A-ha king of fools
tonight, tonight.

Ah-ha king of fools,
don't live by the golden rules.
A-ha king of fools
tonight, tonight.
 


DIAMONDS

Looking for direction,
the mighty Amazon.
Only one ambition,
to find the precious stone.

When I was a boy it was a vision.
Now it all just seems like deja-vu.
Maybe it was all a premonition.
Searching for treasure in the land of Peru, ooh.

Diamonds (diamonds)
up, down, in and out of the Amazon, oh, oh.
Diamonds (diamonds),
he won't stop, the kid goes on and on.

Saw the holy temple,
a man was on his knees.
Sacrificixon ceremony,
the gods they wanna please, oh.

Then the people shouted with emotion.
Try to scale the giant pyramid.
Following the writing on the sandstone.
(Saying the stone was in the room of the dead) oh no no no.

Diamonds (diamonds)
up, down, in and out of the Amazon, oh oh.
Diamonds (diamonds)
he won't stop, the kid goes on and on, oh oh.

Oh burning with fever, I'm dying of hunger.
I'm searching all night, searching all night, all night.

Then I jumped and run into the jungle.
The solid ground gave way beneath my feet.
Fallen inside an icy tomb forever.
(The rock he was after is now out of reach).

Diamonds (diamonds)
up, down, in and out the Amazon.
Diamonds (diamonds)
he won't stop, the kid goes on and on.

Diamonds (diamonds)
up, down, in and out the Amazon.
Diamonds (diamonds)
he won't stop, the kid goes on and on.

Diamonds (diamonds)
up, down, in and out of the Amazon.
Diamonds (diamonds)
he won't stop, the kid goes on and on.
