Tragedy / Too much heaven / Love you inside out / Reaching out / Spirits (having flown ) / Search, find / Stop (think again) / Living together / I'm satisfied / Until.

 
TRAGEDY

Here I lie,
in a lost and lonely part of town,
Held in time,
in a world of tears I slowly drown.
Going home,
I just can't make it all alone.
I really should be holding you, holding you,
loving you loving you.

Tragedy.
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
it's tragedy.
When the morning cries and you don't know why
it's hard to bear.
With no-one to love you
you're going nowhere.

Tragedy.
When you lose control and you got no soul
it's tragedy.
When the morning cries and you don't know why
it's hard to bear.
With no-one beside you
you're going nowhere.

Night and day,
there's a burning down inside of me.
Oh. Burning love,
with a yearning that won't let me be.
Down I go,
and I just can't take it all alone.
I really should be holding you, holding you,
loving you, loving

Tragedy.
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
it's tragedy.
When the morning cries and you don't know why
it's hard to bear.
With no-one to love you
you're going nowhere.

Tragedy.
When you lose control and you got no soul
it's tragedy.
When the morning cries and you don't know why
it's hard to bear.
With no-one beside you
you're going nowhere.

Ah

Tragedy
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
it's tragedy.
When the morning cries and you don't know why
it's hard to bear.
With no-one to love you
you're going nowhere.

Tragedy.
When you lose control and you got no soul
it's tragedy.
When the morning cries and your heart just dies
it's hard to bear.
With no-one beside you
you're going nowhere.

Ah

Tragedy...


TOO MUCH HEAVEN

Nobody gets too much heaven no more.
It's much harder to come by.
I'm waiting in line.

Nobody gets too much love anymore.
It's as high as a mountain
and harder to climb.

Oh, you and me, girl.
got a lot of love in store.
And it flows through you
and it flows through me.
And I love you so much more
than my life.

I can see beyond forever.
Everything we are will never die.
Loving's such a beautiful thing.
Oh, you make my world a summer day.
Are you just a dream to fade away?

Nobody gets too much heaven no more.
It's much harder to come by.
I'm waiting in line.

Nobody gets too much love anymore.
It's as high as a mountain
and harder to climb.

You and me, girl, got a highway to the sky.
We can turn away from the night and day
and the tears you had to cry.

You're my life.
I can see a new tomorrow.
Everything we are will never die.
Loving's such a beautiful thing.
When you are to me the light above,
made for all to see our precious love.

Nobody gets too much heaven no more.
It's much harder to come by.
I'm waiting in line.

Nobody gets too much love anymore.
It's as high as a mountain
and harder to climb.

Oh..

Loving’s such a beautiful thing.
You make my world a summer day.
Are you just a dream to fade away?

Nobody gets too much heaven no more.
It's much harder to come by.
I'm waiting in line.

Nobody gets too much love anymore.
It's as wide as a river
and harder to cross.

Nobody gets too much heaven no more.
It's much harder to come by.
I'm waiting in line.

Nobody gets too much love anymore.
It's as high as a mountain
and harder to climb.

Nobody gets...


LOVE YOU INSIDE OUT

Ah ah ah...

Baby, I can't figure it out
Your kisses taste like honey.
Sweet lies don't gimme no rise.
Oh, oh what you're trying to do?

Living on your cheating and the pain
grows inside me,
it's enough to leave me crying in the rain.
Love you forever but you're driving me insane
and I'm hanging on,
oh.

Oh I'll win, I'll never give in.
Our love has got the power.
Too many lovers in one lifetime
ain't good for you.

You treat me like a vision in the night.
Someone there to stand behind you
when your world ain't working right.

I ain't no vision, I am the man
who loves you inside out,
backwards and forwards with my heart hanging out.
I love no other way.
What am I gonna do
if we lose that fire?

Wrap myself up and take me home again.
Too many heartaches in one lifetime
ain't good for me.
I figure it's the love that keeps you warm.
Let this moment be forever,
we won't ever feel the storm.

I ain't no vision, I am the man
who loves you inside out,
backwards and forwards with my heart hanging out.
I love no other way.
What am I gonna do
if we lose that fire?

Don't try to tell me it's all over.
I can't hear a word, I can't hear a line.
No man could love you more.
And that's what I'm crying for.
You can't change the way I feel inside.

You're the reason for my laughter and my sorrow.
Blow out the candle I will burn again tomorrow.
No man on earth can stand
between my love and I.
And no matter how you hurt me,
I will love you till I die.

I ain't no vision, I am the man
who loves you inside out,
backwards and forwards with my heart hanging out.
I love no other way.
What am I gonna do if we lose that fire?

Love you inside out,
backwards and forwards...


REACHING OUT

Watching every day go by,
living in a foolish game,
Just the way I feel today
living my life without you.

Never hear a single word,
living in a lullaby,
praying every tear I cry,
living my life without you.

And everywhere you go I fly
(I love you with a special feeling).
And, darling, till the day I die
(baby never stop believing).

I'll be reaching out, ooh.
I'll be reaching out, ah, ah....
Reaching out
(there's a woman going through me).
I'll be reaching out
( got a chance to hold you to me ).
Ah..
Everything is lonely and I need you
living my life forever,
forever.

Watching every day go by,
living on the one I love,
what I got is not enough
living my life without you.

And I believe in yesterday
(yesterday was once tomorrow).
With love, with love wide open every way
(baby you're the light I follow).

I'll be reaching out, ooh.
I'll be reaching out, ah.
Reaching out
(there's a woman going through me).
I'll be reaching out
(got a chance to hold you to me)
Everything is lonely and I need you
Living my life forever.

I'll be reaching out.
I'll be reaching out.

Reaching out.
I'll be reaching out.
Living my life forever.

Reaching out.
I'll be reaching out...


SPIRITS HAVING FLOWN

Oh yeah. One, two, three, four.

Ah...

I never fell in love so easily.
Where the four winds blow I carry on.
I'd like to take you where my spirit flies,
through the empty skies.
We go alone.
Never before
having flown

Faster than lightening is this heart of mine.
In the face of time I carry on.
I'd like to take you where my rainbow ends.
Be my lover friend.
We go alone.
Never before
having flown.

I am your hurricane,
your fire in the sun.
How long must I live
in the air?

You are my paradise,
my angel on the run.
How long must I wait?
It's the dawn of the feeling
that starts from the moment you're there.

You'll never know what you have done for me.
You broke all those rules I live upon.
I'd like to take you to my shangri-la,
neither here or far,
away from home.
Never before
having flown.

I am your hurricane,
your fire in the sun.
How long must I live
in the air?

You are my paradise,
my angel on the run.
How long must I wait?
It's the dawn of the feeling
that starts from the moment you're there.

There I'd like to take you where my spirit flies
through the empty skies.
We go alone.
Never before
having flown.


SEARCH FIND

Don't let the day keep moving on
with tears and pride,
they hide the sun.
Look to the road that lies ahead.
I'm turning to the dream we left to die.

Dying alone,
cry for the moment you passed me by.
Baby I don't now how,
I'm only crying now.

Search, find.
No stone unturned, no hell, no fury gonna stop my love and all its glory.
Search, find.
No man, no god, no pain can sever my love for you, God.
We're forever.

Don't lose the will to make it right.
A day is just a brighter night.
And from the flames, a dying love can learn to fly
and rise above and be..

All that we are.
You are the heart of my everything.
Maybe I lose my mind,
I'm not the losing kind.

Search, find.
No stone unturned, no hell, no fury gonna stop my love and all its glory.
Search, find.
No man, no god, no pain can sever my love for you, God.
We're forever.

Search find.
No stone unturned...


STOP, THINK AGAIN

From daybreak to sunset
you are the heart of me,
saying what you don't really mean.

Now I know where you go
and all the plans you made,
playing for a love, not a dream.

All that I want is you now,
and somehow I let you down.
Lost in my pain,
that’s where I lie.

You got to
stop, think again,
before you give it to him.
Stop,
baby, one of us
got to lose.

You gotta stop, think again,
before you lose the heaven.
Stop,
baby one of us gotta try.

Oh, it's a great big world
that we live in.
Pleasure and pain,
that's where I lie.

You got to
stop, think again,
before you give it to him.
Stop,
baby, one of us gotta try.

Midnight you leave me
taking the part of me
that loves you like he loves you,
only more.

Birds cry, my sky falls.
Darkness becomes my life.
He got you.
I got nothing to be living for.

Oh, it's a great big world
that we live in.
Pleasure and pain,
that's where I lie.

You got to
stop, think again
before you give it to him.
Stop,
baby one of us, one of us, one of us.

You got to
stop, think again
before you lose the heaven.
Stop
baby one of us got to try.
Ah


LIVING TOGETHER

Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?
Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?

Why ain't we living together,
living together instead of being alone?
Why ain't we living together,
living together instead of being alone?

I lay my heart on you
and you can show the way.
I give my everlasting love
until my dying day.

Take this lonely soul,
the water or the wine,
a chance to make you mine.
I lay my body on the line.

Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?
Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?

Why ain't we living together,
living together instead of being alone?
Why ain't we living together,
living together instead of being alone?

My life was emptiness
until you came along.
I nearly fell apart,
you took my heart and made me strong.

And I need all of you
to get me through the night.
A chance to see the light.
I lay my body on the line.

Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?
Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?

Why ain't we living together,
living together instead of being alone?
Why ain't we living together,
living together instead of being alone?

Why ain't we living,
living together instead of being so, so far apart?...


I'M SATISFIED

With you,
baby I'm satisfied,
making my love to you.
'Cause you got me hypnotized.

And you came to me alone, girl.
I was a heart that's made of stone, girl,
and you broke it down in pieces.
Ah, and you took me for your own, girl.

I lie beneath your ecstasy.
You can pour it all over me.
I won't break the chains of loving you.
We got everything anybody needs.
And it's here with me.

With you,
baby I'm satisfied,
making my love to you
(making my love, making my love).
'Cause you got me hypnotized.

Before you took me by the hand, girl,
I was a statue in the sand, girl.
I was broken down for reasons,
oh, you could never understand, girl.

I was living on desire.
But that was just the way we were.
Till you make a world of love in you.
We got everything anybody needs.
And it's here with me.

With you,
baby I'm satisfied,
making my love to you.
'Cause you got me hypnotized.

Anytime you wander,
get yourself back to me, girl.
Any cloud you're under,
you got to get yourself free, girl.

Ahh, ahh, baby, with you,
baby I'm satisfied,
making' my love to you.
Cause you got me hypnotized.


UNTIL

You were a lovely child
and your hair was like the morning sun.
And I knew we were in love.
We were alone to dream a dream.
We held our love that held our hearts.

And who are we? Who knew
all there was in life and coming through
and every lonely sad mistake,
every change and interchange we make?
We held our love and that held our hearts.

Until, until, ooh.

Ah...
