STILL WATERS (1997)

Alone / I surrender / I could not love you more / Still waters run deep / My lover's prayer / With my eyes closed / Irresistible force / Closer than close / I will / Obsessions / Miracles happen / Smoke and mirrors.
+ Rings around the moon / Love never dies.


ALONE

I was a midnight rider on a cloud of smoke,
I could make a woman hang on every single stroke,
I was an iron man,
I had a master plan,
but I was alone.

I could hear you breathing with a sigh of the wind,
I remember how your body started trembling.
Oh, what a night it's been
and for the state I'm in
I'm still alone.

And all the wonders made for the Earth,
and all the hearts in all creation,
somehow I always end up alone (always end up alone),
always end up alone.

So I play (sha la),
I'll wait (I'll wait)
'cause you know that love takes time.
We came (sha la) so far (so far),
just the beat of a lonely heart.
And it's mine,
I don't want to be alone.

Well, since I got no message on the answer phone,
and since you're busy every minute, I just stay at home,
I make believe you care,
I feel you everywhere,
but I'm still alone.

I'm on a wheel of fortune with a twist of fate
'cause I know it isn't heaven, is it love or hate.
Am I the subject of the pain.
Am I the stranger in the rain.
I am alone.

And is there glory there to behold,
maybe it's my imagination.
Another story there to be told (oh).

So I play (sha la), I'll wait (your time),
and I pray it's not too late (it isn't too late).
You know we came (sha la) so far (so far),
just the beat of a lonely heart,
and it's mine,
and I don't want to be alone.

And all the wonders made for the Earth,
and all the hearts in all creation,
another story there to be told (oh).

So I play (sha la), I'll wait (I'll wait),
and I pray it's not too late.
We came (sha la) so far (so far),
just the beat of a lonely heart,
and it's mine,
and I don't want to be alone.

Gone, but not out of sight.
I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home.
Face the heat of the night,
the one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone.

Shine and search for the light
and sooner or later you'll be cruising on your ocean
(and I don't want to be alone).
Shine and clean out of sight
I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home
(and I don't want to be alone).
Face the heat of the night,
the one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone
(and I don't want to be alone).
Shine and search for the light
and sooner or later you'll be cruising on your ocean
(and I don't want to be alone).
Shine and clean out of sight
and sooner or later...


I SURRENDER

From the highest tower,
I will call you home.
It's the same old story,
love will find its own (oh).

You come to me, conspiracy of the night.
The heart that you want just happens to be mine.
Thieves in the dark, you ought to be locked in chains
but you wind up on my side, and what will be will be.

That you wear a disguise, the epitome of deceit.
The face of a friend invisible on the street.
If you are battling to be mine, I'm victorious in defeat
and I surrender (I surrender), I surrender.

Anybody want me, anyone know my name.
Do it in a lifetime,
you be dust and the soul survives.
Evens up the score (ah).

From the highest tower,
I will call you home.
It's the same old story,
love will find its own.

And I surrender,
take me for all time.
Love that lasts forever,
and I surrender.

We are elite, prisoners of the night.
We fight to the finish and savour the delights.
It's your body that got me beat, and I'm crumbling at your feet,
I surrender (I surrender), I surrender.

(I surrender)
I will walk through fire to keep you safe and sound (oh no, oh no).
In the final hour, turn my life around (oh no),
and I surrender, take me for all time.

You are the air that I breathe (oh)

I will walk through fire, keep you safe and sound.
In the final hour, turn my life around (oh).
This is my life (life) story (story), I've been lost and found (oh no, oh no).
In the final hour (in the final hour), turn my life around (oh no).

And I surrender (surrender), ah ah ah....
take me for all time.
I surrender, ah
Love as warm as wine
I surrender ah ah....


I COULD NOT LOVE YOU MORE

Now that we're alone.
No more hide and seek.
You are the highest dream to me.
And as you softly sleep
then I can tell you what it means.

Locked in my arms like lovers lie,
I will not let you slip away.
Is this the summer of them all.
Is this my night of nights
that you came to stay.

Here you are, owner of my heart,
just the way that love should be.
And there's something I must say to you,
if you promise to believe
that it's you I'm living for
and I could not love you more.

Seasons may come and seasons go
but these are the truest words I know.
Face to face, eye to eye.
This is the summer of of our lives.
One love that cannot die.

Here you are, owner of my soul,
never let you say goodbye.
And there is something I must say to you,
we leave the world outside
and you have come to me at last, we start.

Open up your heart,
let my deepest love inside.
I'm only doing what I have to do.
If you promise to belive
that I could not love you more.

Here you are (you are), owner of my heart,
just the way that love should be.
And there's something I must say to you,
we leave the world outside
and you have come to me at last (at last), we start.

Open up your heart,
let my deepest love inside (ah).
I'm only doing what I have to do.
If you promise to belive
that it's you I'm living for
that it's you I'm living for
and I could not love you more.


STILL WATERS RUN DEEP


Still waters run deep.
Just remember when we lie to each other.

No one wins and losers weep.

Reflection will show
this connection, we can lean on each other,
this is all we need to know.

Now I admit I've been a fool sometimes.
I believe I may be losing you.
It's now or never, we talk before a tear is shed.
Under your spell and over my head.

You took me in your arms and you told me
we don't need to worry, but you,
you never say you're sorry.

Keep this love alive for us, it's all I feel.
How can we survive if we change what is real?

Still waters run deep,
just remember when we lie to each other.
No one wins and losers weep.

Reflection will show
this connection, we can lean on each other,
this is all we need to know.

I see the angel and the devil in your heart.
I confess, either one is my addiction.
And where you're leading me
I don't have the will to fight.
Out of the darkness and into the light.

But living in your arms, I can take it.
Please don't make me shiver.
I know together we deliver.

Let the gods decide
who finds the sweetest thrill.
Who can justify the truth?
God, I love you still.

Still waters run deep.
Just remember when we lie to each other.
No one wins and losers weep (losers weep).

Deception will show
it's a struggle when you're starved for affection (ah),
this is all we need.

Oooh
Don't let him get too close to you.
(you've got a stranger on your mind).
The dream is free.
I know I'm only human ifI cry
(Or maybe we should kiss and say goodbye).

Ah. Girl. I love you still.

Still waters run deep.
Just remember when we lie to each other (ah).
No one wins and losers weep (no one wins).

Deception will show (show)
it's a struggle when you're starved for affection
this is all we need to know.

(Still) Still waters run deep.
Just remember when we lie to each other.
No one wins and losers weep.

Reflection will show
this connection, we can lean on each other,
this is all we need to know.



MY LOVER'S PRAYER

In the history of a life takes a heart,
when the power of love comes together,
there ain't nothing can tear us apart.
And the touch of your hand I can feel
that what we got is stronger than steel.
That's when you hear..
.
..my lover's prayer.
It's my own silent message to you.
Takes me there, my lover's prayer,
and my soul is divided in two.

With my love on the line
I send it all over the world,
out on the air.
'Cause I can't let go
and my heart has a mind of its own.
It's my lover's prayer.

It's the mystery of a place blessed by us,
and the moment of truth is forever,
in the face of incredible odds.
And the look in your eyes tells me why.
Let our words burn a sign in the sky.

My lover's prayer.
It's as easy as talking to you.
All my life, having you there.
In my own private vision come true.

You're heaven on Earth.
You're the fire and all that I'm worth.
And I can be strong.
You hold the key.
Don't say it's over (don't say it's over).
Don't say it's over for me (don't say it's over).

My lover's prayer (my lover's prayer).
It's as easy as talking to you (it's easy, it's easy).
All my life, having you there.
In my own private vision come true.

In my search for your love
I send it all over the world.
It's all I can bare.
And the nights get long
but my heart holds on.
It's no empty words.

My lover's prayer (my lover's prayer).
It's my own silent message to you (message to you, message to).
Takes me there, my lover's prayer (oh).
And my soul is divided in two.
'Cause I can't (can't) let go (oh can't).
And my heart has a mind of its own.
It's my lover's prayer


WITH MY EYES CLOSED

Say you never send me away.
Making me a memory and
telling me to find me a life
change, there's no changing,
what cannot be changed.
And you are witness to a silent conversation.

Nothing but the black of night.
No-one ever takes your place.
Gotta let the pantomime play.
Not to worry, my telepathy.
I bring you into me ,there's be no separation.

And I tell you
I will climb inside your world,
and at ythe dawn of history
I was born to find this girl (ah).

And I can see you with my eyes closed.
I can feel you when you're near me.
Just the knowing that you
hear me, could be,
you could measure my love.

I can touch you with my hands tied (words of love).
It don't take no extra feeling (you won't believe).
Let your imagination, just run (take a hand).
You can measure my love.

And they tell you
they can stop those tears you cry.
And we can ride that storm together,
and all the love that lasts forever,
and forever and forever.

Cling to the vine and the vine never breaks.
It's a message from a ship to shore.
For the soul and the sacrifice,
pain.
There's no fury like a woman scorned.
We could be victims of a lethal combination.
I
t's the hour.
It's the sword that hides the stone.
And one of us holds the power
there to forge our hearts together,
here forever and forever.

And I can feel you with my eyes closed (words of love).
I can feel you when you're near me (where you are).
Just the knowing that you hear me, could be, (I'll survive),
you could measure my love.

I can touch you with my hands tied (words of love).
It don't take no extra feeling (you won't believe).
Let your imagination, just run (I'll survive).
You can measure my love (my love)...


IRRESISTIBLE FORCE

In the name of love and life
turn your face to the lonely night,
but you're not alone
when she calls you home.

And this your world is on the edge,
as good as lost but you know the way
through this faceless town
and she pulls me down.

I know the place and the time (of our lives)
so long ago,
and all through the years (never dies)
all things must pass.

Irresistible force meets an immovable object and
human animal madness and blood starts to flow.
Invisible fingers and indescribable pleasure.
I get to find my personal god.
I get to find my personal god.

God of love, god of gold,
ring of fire in the days of old,
it's what I'm living for
and love's the only law.

So answer mayday SOS.
Search me north south east or west.
It's all I miss, just the one last kiss.

This is goodbye to the days (of our lives),
my fair-weather friend.
I feel your sorrow and tears (they are mine),
I share to the end.

Irresistible force meets an immovable object and
human animal magic, how far can you go?
The rolling of thunder and you decide what you're after.

I get to find my personal god.
I get to find my personal god.

I surrender, all or nothing.
You must spread your wings and fly.

I know the place and the time (of our lives),
my fair-weather friend.
I feel your sorrow and tears (they are mine),
I share to the end.

When an irresistible force meets an immovable object and
human animal madness and blood starts to flow,
there's bound to be a heartbreak,
you make it the hard way.

I surrender, all or nothing
You must spread your wings and fly.


CLOSER THAN CLOSE

She'll read your mind, she's smart as a whip.
She'll suck you dry, but look at how much I drip.
At the point of ecstasy I write a symphony
of poetry in motion, and leaving me there to die.

I tell myself let no one take her place.
To confide in someone and look at how much I paid.
I want you next to me, call it telepathy.
We drifted into vision and look how much we see.
Aaah..

I just want to get closer than close to you.
I know that one way or the other
any test of my faith will do.

And lovers fall for lovers friends'.
We make each other cry,
living in each others lives
and trying to make the fantasy come true.

But I just want to get closer than close to you.
Baby, I just want to get closer than close to you.

Your soul is naked, it tells you what it wants.
I read your letter and look at how close I've come.
There's more for us to see in this philosophy.
We both end up in heaven and look at how close we'd be.
Aaah...
I
just want to get closer than close to you.
I know that one way or the other
any test of my faith will do.

I give my heart for you to break.
I give my final breath.
When nothing lasts forever see
what we can turn eternity into.

And I just want to get closer than close to you
at the moment you discover
what the best of my love can do.

And lovers fall for lovers friends'.
We make each other cry,
living in each others lives
and trying to make the fantasy come true.

I just want to get closer than close to you.
Baby, I just want to get closer than close to you....


I WILL

Is this your voice I heard
speaking my name?
I hang on every word,
each letter that I write,
every day, every night,
but I just can't live and learn (ooh).

Talking to myself and believing I could live without you.
Living on the lies and believing that love would stay.
Listen to me please and I'm begging on my knees before you,
but you don't show the way,
no, you don't show the way.

He may change your world and someday he may break your heart,
and you deserve no better.
If you love him I will step aside.
I offer this to you.
So leave me as I love you still.
And if he don't keep you warm,
you know I will,
you know (ooh).

So this is who you are,
and the rest of my life I dedicate to you.
And I know that love can't wait.
There's a moon and a sun
and a dream that sees me through (ooh).

A little bit of change and a little bit of my desire.
I was shaking all over and I didn't know what to say.
I'm the man in the middle and the middle man catches fire.
But baby, go away.
Oh baby, go, baby, go away.

He became your hero somehow, I become your clown.
And you deserve no better.
If you love him, I will step aside.
I offer this to you.
So leave me as I love you still.
And if he don't take your heart, if he don't take your heart,
you know I will.

It ain't wise, it ain't smart,
you say there's no doubt about it.
If you decide you got somebody else.
(when I want you to myself).

I can't stop, I can't look,
I can't say no more about it,
but my love will go on
just as long as the river flows.

Suddenly someone is crying.
Who knows what tomorrow brings. So...

He may change your world and someday he may break your heart
and you deserve no better.
If you love him I will step aside.
I offer this to you.
So leave me as I love you still (love you still).
And if he don't take your heart, if he don't take your heart,
you know I will (ooh)

It ain't wise, it ain't smart.
You say there's no doubt about it.
If you decide you got somebody else.
(when I want you to myself).

I can't stop, I can't look,
I can't say no more about it
but my love will go on
just as long as the river flows.

It ain't wise, it ain't smart.
You say there's no doubt about it
if you decide you got somebody else
(when I want you to myself)...


OBSESSIONS

It happened in the middle of the night,
when I thought I had control.
Didn't want to be the one to fight,
didn't want to lose my soul.

I was up for something more.
Never thought I'd get it started.
Paralyzed, polarized, hung on every word.

I'm in love with the child inside.
I don't have a right to follow you
or have a license to get closer.

A love that won't be denied.
For you are something like I've never seen.
I'm a man whose heart is crying.

Just another one of my obsessions.
You don't want to be a special toy.
I never be the one to hurt you.
Like every other girl and boy.

Just another little indiscretion.
Another game that you want to try.
You can never be unfaithful
if you gotta love somebody.

Ooh ooh...

Want to make your mountains high.
Want to take your valley low.
There's a moral to my story.
Let me in and close the door
until the morning light.
What I'd give to live inside you.
Make me wait,
we separate but only to return.

Whisper and I'll be there.
I don't want you to beg me to stop.
I just want to drown in your desire.

Love is for those who dare.
All the cream is rising to the top.
And it's the love you save from dying.

Ah
Just another one of my obsessions.
Something I could never find.
It's the kind of love that makes your heart
feel obsessed with mine.

Any battle for the one possession.
Another game that you want to try.
You can never be unfaithful
if you gotta love somebody.

Oooh...

Just another one of my obsessions.
You don't want to be a special toy.
I never be the one to hurt you.
Like every other girl and boy.
Just another little indiscretion.
Another game that you want to try.
You can never be unfaithful
if you gotta love somebody.

Oooh...

Just another one of my obsessions...


MIRACLES HAPPEN

Miracles happen,
you know miracles happen.
Miracles happen,
you know miracles happen.

If we just try
we can put it back together, you and I.
And all the bad is blown away.
I never said goodbye.

Is the writing on the wall
that makes you see.
And it's the saviour of my soul.
And what I say that must be heard
with love in every word.

Close your eyes, don't let go,
don't get lost in the falling snow.
Always out of place alone,
with someone you're not sure of.

Broken wings don't arrive.
It's a storm but you still survive.
It's gonna take a miracle.

So I go around believing you.
I say good night, stay forever and
nobody knows how much
I pray for you at night.
And miracles happen,
You know miracles happen.

And yesterday
there was nothing in my life worth living for.
You were there and I was born,
the very strength to carry on
a miracle has come.

Hold on tight, call my name,
don't get caught in the midnight rain.
Part of me believes in you,
you're someone I'm not sure of.

Don't look down, I'll be there,
like the wind in the cold night air.
I can see a miracle.

And through it all we rise and fall,
tear it apart and stay forever.
And I know where heaven is
and somewhere in between
miracles happen,
you know miracles happen.

Red, blue, black and white.
True light shine on anyone.
Two hearts make it right.
And all that love can change.

Close my eyes, don't let go.
I'll be lost in the falling snow.
Always out of place alone,
with someone I'm not sure of.

Don't look down, I'll be there
like the wind in the cold night air.
I can see a miracle.

And through it all we rise and fall.
We tear it apart and stay forever.
And I know where heaven is
and somewhere in between
miracles happen.

Hold on tight, call my name,
don't get caught in the midnight rain.
Part of me believes in you,
you're someone I'm not sure of.

Don't look down, I'll be there,
like the wind in the cold night air.
I can see a miracle.

Close my eyes, don't let go.
I'll be lost in the falling snow...


SMOKE AND MIRRORS

When I was a boy
all the books I read
I followed like a blind man
to heed the words my father said.

Those golden summers faded into night,
words become a dream,
the echoes of my childhood
and where the path is winding.

May God bless you,
keep you safe from all harm.
Oh, may I stand by you always.
Time and motion.
Hands touch,
lips find a way to heaven on high.

Watch the children play,
the child becomes a man,
and all the tangled webs we weave,
you swear it as we live and breath.
We stay together, death until you part.
Winner takes the prize.
The future's at your finger tips,
right before your eyes.

No more sorrow (smoke and mirrors).
No more nights with no end. (I really learned a lot)
I see my tomorrows (smoke and mirrors)
.
And nothing from nothing.
And ashes to ashes, they say.
All the more that you reach out
the more that it runs away.

Smoke and mirrors.
Smoke and mirrors.

(No more goodbyes.)
That's all I ever got, smoke and mirrors.
(No lies, you find your way there,)
She show me what she's got, smoke and mirrors.
(heaven on high.)

May God bless you,
keep you safe from all harm.
Oh, may I stand by you always.

Time and motion . (smoke and mirrors)
Hands touch, (that's all I ever got)
lips find a way to heaven on high (smoke and mirrors).

No more sorrows
(I really learned a lot, smoke and mirrors)
No more nights with no end.
(She show me what she's got, smoke and mirrors)
I rise or I fall.

No more goodbyes.
(She really makes me hot, smoke and mirrors)
No lies, you find a way there,
heaven on high.


RINGS AROUND THE MOON

If you're lonely in the black of night,
if you call me, I'll be there.
I was falling, you helped me get it right,
and I thank you, yes, I thank you.

And I pray for the sign,
and it won't be too late.

If you just come down
I can look you in the eye,
I can tell you that I love you,
and my love will never die.
And it's time that you know
just how far I mean to go.

We fly rings around the moon (repeat)

Come tomorrow when the candle burns,
and I wake up by your side.
All my sorrow, you made it disappear,
and I thank you, yes, I thank you.

And I lay down my life,
and I won't be alone.

If you just take time
and be sure of who you are.
We can take it up to heaven,
we can walk amongst the stars.
And I know if you stay
I will never turn away.

We fly rings around the moon (repeat)

And I lay down my life,
and it won't be too late.
If you just take time
and be sure of who you are.
We can take it up to heaven,
we can walk amongst the stars.
And I know if you stay
I will never turn away.

We fly rings around the moon (repeat)


LOVE NEVER DIES

You say you saw the dark side, baby, I know
it gets you through the night.
And love is like a red rose, baby, an so
it's coming around again.
If we can take the same direction,
we'll find the road that never ends.

Love never dies,
it goes on forever.
Love never dies,
love never dies,
love goes on forever.

This is the love we've been talking about.
You led her in till she couldn't get out.
You made the little girl cry.
No sad stories to deny.

I go through the holy war for you, baby, you know,
so you ain't got a prayer.
I'll answer if you call for me, baby, I'm yours,
to God above I swear.

I only wanna live in the shadow you make,
the soul never lies.
Love never dies,
it goes on forever.
Love never dies,
love never dies,
love goes on forever.

You better run to the heart of the flame.
She don't change like the sun and the rain,
'cause she don't understand why.
You made the little girl cry.

Love never dies,
it goes on forever,
Love never dies,
love never dies,
love goes on forever.

This is the love we've been talking about.
You led her in till she couldn't get out.
You made the little girl cry.
No sad stories to deny.

You better run to the heart of the flame.
She don't change like the sun and the rain.
'Cause she don't understand why.
You made the little girl cry.

This is the love we've been talking about.
You led her in till she couldn't get out...
