Lyrics By Album: Index

THIS IS WHERE I CAME IN (2001)

This is where I came in / She keeps on coming / Sacred trust / Wedding day / Man in the middle / Déjà vu / Technicolor dreams / Walking on air / Loose talk costs lives / Embrace / The extra mile / Voice in the wilderness. + Just in case / I will be there / Promise the earth.

 
THIS IS WHERE I CAME IN

I've seen the story, I've read it over once or twice.
I said that you say a little bit of bad advice.
I been in trouble, happened to me all my life.
I lie and you lie, and who would get the sharpest knife?

You know I shouldn't be somebody like that,
I'm not the kind of man to throw his hat into the ring and
go down without following through,
the day turns into night,
go down without following through,
the day turns into night.

Ooooh ooooh ooooh
This is just where I came in.

Hope rides on, but I'll go anywhere,
yes, I'll go anywhere with you.
Time has gone, but I'll  go anywhere,
yes I'll go anywhere with you.

This is the danger zone, this is where I came in.
They know not what they do, forgive them of their sins.
They know they cannot take away what you have given me.

Ooooh ooooh ooooh
This is just where I came in.

Fade into colour, and colour into black and white.
Under the bedclothes everything will be alright.
I know that you know nothing ever stays the same.
Said so, I said so, the love will never speak its name.

Never gonna find somebody like you, beauty with a brain and a body too.
I could never make a move on a woman that leads me on.
She's got a little bit of something for everyone.
It's a little too late and the wolf is on the run.

Hope rides on, but I'll go anywhere,
yes, I'll go anywhere with you.
Time has gone, but I'll go anywhere,
yes, I'll go anywhere with you.

I always told myself I would regret this day,
that I would fall apart and watch you walk away,
that you would cry out loud and I would stand aside.

Ooooh ooooh ooooh
This is just where I came in.
Ooooh ooooh ooooh
This is just where I came in.

I can't fly, but I'll go anywhere,
yes, I'll go anywhere with you.
Time goes by, but I'll go anywhere,
yes, I'll go anywhere with you.

This is the danger zone, this is where I came in.
They know not what they do, forgive them of their sins.
They know they cannot take away what you have given me.

Ooooh ooooh ooooh
This is just where I came in.
Ooooh ooooh ooooh
This is just where I came in.
Ooooh ....


SHE KEEPS ON COMING

Front and centre, I don't know how it happened then,
I can't explain it, what she was thinking of and when.
Mother Nature, she put us both together,
and the way she touched me and I ran that red light.

And so I said I love her, she tell me I don't matter.
I try to kiss her, but every dream is shattered.
No early warning, except the morning after.
Look in the mirror like a rabbit in the headlights.

She keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more.
Champagne and roses, breakfast in bed,
wrapped in each other and out of my head.
She keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more.

She ain't no Cleopatra, I ain't no Julius Caesar,
I ain't no Casanova, she ain't no Mona Lisa.
She charm a nation, she send you out to die,
and we were flying when she ran that red light.

I ain't no Valentino, she ain't no Greta Garbo,
no Aphrodite, I'll never be Apollo,
but when we come together there's no one else can follow,
there's no tomorrow when we run that red light.

She keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on knocking at the door..
Drunk on desire, erotic delights,
sooner or later, she´ll kiss you good night.
She keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more.

Midnight, die in the arms of a lover. (Dream time, she's mine, always here, )
Hold tight, I close my eyes and she's gone. (small town, daytime, disappear.)

She keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more.
Drunk on desire, erotic delights,
sooner or later, she´ll kiss you good night
But she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on knocking at the door,
she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more,
she keeps on coming back for more...


SACRED TRUST

I meant to fight it to the finish but you made me forget,
and though it's possible I'm dreaming, don't wake me yet.
You know I love you, I can't see the day for night.
You know I twist around and turn around and then I give in.
You end up in control of me, it's really a sin,
I don't know what you're doing to me but I know it's a crime.

And, baby, I can't last another night,
and every moment is eternity,
and from the depth of my soul can't let another day go by.

I follow my heart right up to the end, as far as the eye can see.
I'm faithful and true and living up to your sacred trust in me.
I'll never give out to somebody else, I know where my arms should be.
I'm faithful and true and making it through your sacred trust in me, your sacred trust in me.

You take and you break me and do what you please,
I stumble and I tremble and I'm weak at the knees,
the vision that lies before me is not reality.

I tell you I can't wait another night
for every secret that your soul reveals,
and you and I may get to know
that it's real, that it's real.

I follow my heart that leads me to you, and all that my love should be,
and you can be sure I'm doing it for your sacred trust in me.
I'll never give out to somebody else, there's nowhere my heart should be,
I'm faithful and true and living up to your sacred trust in me, your sacred trust in me.

I follow my heart right up to the end as far as the eye can see.
I'm faithful and true and living up to your sacred trust in me.
I'll never give out to somebody else, I know where my arms should be.
I'm faithful and true and making it through your sacred trust in me, your sacred trust.

I follow my heart that leads me to you, and all that my love should be,
and you can be sure I'm doing it for your sacred trust in me.
I'll never give out to somebody else, there's nowhere my heart should be,
I'm faithful and true and living up to your sacred trust in me, your sacred trust.


WEDDING DAY

We both acknowledge what we came here for.
We take each other and walk through the open door.
From the first time that I saw you
to the way you look tonight
I was shaken by your spirit,
I was blinded by your light.

And the world that I used to see is gone without a trace,
replaced by your eyes and the smile upon your face.
And I will not turn away
'cause you might disappear.
I was haunted by your heart
and I felt that you were here.

And funny when the time is right,
when lightning strikes,
you're not alone.
Baby, I will pray for you my whole life through
this day.

We'll be together,
husband and wife,
now and forever,
the rest of our lives.

Well, take me to heaven (ah),
take me tonight (ah).
There is nothing words can say
on this our wedding day.

Oh, now is the hour, now is the sowing of the seed,
I will take tomorrow,
I will lay it at your feet.
And the two of us escape from the sadness of the world,
from the thunder and the darkness,
from the hunger and the hurt.

You know I will remember well the mission bell
that rings your name.
And baby there could never be
a memory like you.

We'll be together (ah),
husband and wife (ah),
now and forever (ah),
lovers for life (oh).

Well, take me to heaven (ah),
take me tonight (ah).
There is nothing words can say
on this our wedding day.

This is my pledge to you.
I will follow through to the end.
And we will find another plane.
We'll be home again.
And tonight I'm going to find true love, true love.

We'll be together,
husband and wife,
now and forever,
lovers for life.

Well, take me to heaven (ah),
take me tonight (ah).
There is nothing words can say
on this our wedding day,
this our wedding day.


MAN IN THE MIDDLE

You've got a plan that could never go wrong.
You took advantage and the damage done.
It all comes back to me, baby.
It all comes back to me.

I played the fool and I went off the track.
And when I think of all it cost,
when the dice was cast,
you know I had to be crazy,
you know I had to be.

I've been telling lies,
and you forgive me but my heart still cries.
And you can understand...

...I'm just the man in the middle
of a complicated plan.
No one to show me the signs.
I'm just a creature of habit
in a complicated world.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide, to hide....

I know I let you down in so many ways.
I know that sorry doesn't tell you
what you need me to say.
But, I would die for you, baby.
Yes, I would die for you.

I've been in disguise.
And you forgive me and our love will rise.
And you can understand....

...I'm just the man in the middle
of a complicated plan.
No one to show me the light.
Ah,yes, I'm weary from battle
but I've just begun to fight.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide.

I'm just the man in the middle
of a complicated plan.
No one to show me the signs.
I'm just a creature of habit
in a complicated world.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide....

I'm just the man in the middle
of a complicated plan
No one to show me the light.
Ah, yes, I'm weary from battle
but I've just begun to fight.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide.

I'm just the man in the middle.
The only man.
The fool of a man in the middle.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide.

I'm just the man.
The only man.
That stupid man.
Nowhere to run to.
Nowhere to hide, to hide, to hide...


DEJA VU

This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.

I'm not a saint but stand accused.
You're with someone who thinks love's the same as being used.
And now suspicious minds may say it's over, over.
Whether I live or die, you are my saviour,
you're my saviour.

It's my deja vu, sweet deja vu,
through the feast or famine I'll be with you.
Sheltering arms reach out to you.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.

The silent nights I cry your name.
You're with someone who says
they can get you through your pain.
These golden years keep on returning.
It's hurting.
Precious and few.
You're my saviour, you're my saviour.

It's my deja vu, sweet deja vu,
through the feast or famine I'll be with you.
Sheltering arms reach out to you.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.

La la la.....
And cherish what they've lost
when often it's too late.

It's my deja vu (memories of you),
sweet deja vu (keep coming through),
through the feast or famine
I'll be with you (all that is true).
Sheltering arms reach out to you.
Oh baby.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.
This is my dedication.


TECHNICOLOR DREAMS

Now, I've been accused of going Hollywood
chasing some cinematic schemes
but I'll give you Panavision pictures
if you give me technicolor dreams.

I never thought in terms of growing old.
Nothing is ever as it seems.
But I'll give you Panavision pictures
'cause you give me technicolor dreams.

Up there, walking on air,
I'd like to show you how
I loved you way back then
as much as I need you now.

Some people like to send the world away,
some sunlight on some silver beams,
and I'll give you Panavision pictures
'cause you give me technicolor dreams.

Oh wow, look at us now
all of our dreams fulfill.
I would implore you still
from under your windowsill.

Sometimes, I'd like to send the world away,
some sunlight on some silver beams,
so I'll give you Panavision pictures
'cause you give me technicolor dreams.
technicolor dreams.

I'll give you Panavision pictures
'cause you give me technicolor dreams.

Go far, follow your star.
I'll help you climb that hill.
I would adore you still
from under your windowsill.

Sometimes, I'd like to send the world away,
some sunlight on some silver beams,
so I'll give you Panavision pictures
'cause you give me technicolor dreams.
technicolor dreams.


WALKING ON AIR

I've been around the world.
You'll never know just how long I've been praying
to get you into my life.

It won't be long before you understand.
Even our love becomes a master plan, and so I..

...I think I'm walking on air.
So much in love I can't tell what I'm saying.
There'll be no running away.

You and I won't be apart again.
I know in my heart that we can start again.

Wait for the summer
when love's in the air.
You won't be sorry.
You answered my prayer.

I see the games that you play.
And I don't care what the people are saying.
No other love can compare.

Just to hold you in my arms again
I feel like walking on air.
And just to dream you'll be there keeps me going.
And all those days go by.

We will never be apart again,
knowing our love will never die.

Wait for the summer
when love's in the air.
We'll be together this time of the year.

We will never be apart again,
knowing our love will never die.

Here comes the summer
with love in the air (love in the air).
You won't be sorry
you answered my prayer (answered my prayer).

Here comes the summer
and everyone's here (everyone's here).
We will be sailing
through year after year (year after year).

You know I'm walking on air.
I know I'm walking on air.
You know I'm walking on air.


LOOSE TALK COSTS LIVES

Loose talk costs lives.
People like to play.
We're basically the same.
We never lie.
Loose talk costs lives.

Don't look at me as if you don't remember me at all.
There was laughter, there was pain,
but I won't make the same mistakes I made.
You are too beautiful to me.
I hide my tears inside the rain.

Am I the soul you cast your spell upon?
I had control and now it's gone.
Or are you someone who controls my heart and mind?
And I will never say a word.
And I will never say goodbye.

Loose talk (loose talk) costs lives (costs lives).
People like to play.
We're basically the same.
We never lie.
Loose talk (loose talk) costs lives (costs lives).

I can see that someone hung a sign around your heart.
And it reads "Do not return".
And there is so much trouble I could cause.
Someone as beautiful as you.
You can feel my candle burn.

And I still recall some starry night.
We had it all, we held on tight.
I promised I would come to you and catch you if you fall.
And they will never know about us.
For just one moment you were mine.

Loose talk (loose talk) costs lives (costs lives).
People like to play.
We're basically the same.
We never lie.
Loose talk (loose talk) costs lives (costs lives).

For just one moment, just one moment, you were mine.

People like to play.
We're basically the same.

Loose talk (loose talk) costs lives.


EMBRACE

I don't know what you want, I don't hear what you said.
Truth behind the lies.
'Cause I can't see what's in your head.
And spread your wings and fly, out in a brave new world.
Let this be my prayer, to keep you safe when I'm not there.

Can we love and live apart?
I don't know, no, I don't know.
How can we divide the heart?
I don't know, no, I don't know.

And when the night falls, and when the sky falls,
I long for your embrace.
And in the cold night, under the street light,
I long for your embrace.

Living separate lives, I have faith in you, away from you (I have faith).
Like a lonely child, I will hang on every word.
Embrace.

Through the mists of time, lovers can be friends.
The power of the human heart.
The secrets in the souls of men.
All my blessings in disguise.
I don't know, no, I don't know.
Reunited we will rise.
I don't know, no, I don't know.

And when the night falls, and when the sky falls,
I long for your embrace.
And in the cold night, under the street light,
I long for your embrace.

Living separate lives, I have faith in you, away from you (I have faith).
Like a lonely child, I will hang on every word.

And when the night falls, and when the sky falls,
I long for your embrace.
Another daybreak, another heartache,
I long for your embrace.

Living separate lives,
away from you.
Embrace, embrace.
The lonely, lonely life.
Lonely days and nights (away from you).
We can live our life
(embrace, embrace)
with our separate lives.
Embrace, embrace.
The lonely, lonely lives.
Lonely days and nights.
I will never send away.
Embrace, embrace.
The lonely, lonely lives.
Embrace the child inside
the lonely, lonely lives.


THE EXTRA MILE

I want to go where no one's gone before.
And my faith will find the way.
And I'm not afraid.
Now I am here with all that is true.
So many times.
You lived with my strength and my pain.
You are my friend.

I'm ready to walk that line,
ready to fight, for
I'm not alone in the night,
you're always in sight and it's so right.
For once in your life, let your soul shine through
and know I will go
that extra mile for you.

In all the years you suffer for your love.
And my tears will fade away.
Heaven above.
Now I can steer my ship to the shore.
Borne on the wind.
All's fair in love and in war.
Steady and sure.

I'm ready to walk that line,
ready to fight, I'll
weather the storm in the night.
You're always around and it's so right.
For once in your life let your soul shine through
and know I will go
that extra mile for you.

Ready to walk that line,
ready to fight, I'll
weather the storm in the night
You're always in sight and it's so right.
For once in your life let your soul shine through
and know I will go
that extra mile for you.


VOICE IN THE WILDERNESS

It's another woman.
Hey, it could be me, it could be anyone.
Yeah, she got the energy to blind the sun.
And she make me glow.
She sparkle and I see the light.
I miss her every moment she is out of sight.
She's a necessity.
My baby keeps rolling me.

Watch her glide.
This girl is bonafide.
She's got what causes chaos.

She's got the power that I can't explain.
Blowing through each other like a hurricane.
Look at me, I'm twenty-seven stories high.
There may be somebody else and...

I don't want to live like that.
No, I don't want to live like that.
Don't want to live like that.
No, I don't want to live like that, live like that.
Just another voice in the wilderness.

Stick with me forever.
Cross my heart and hope to die.
You should give me everything and so will I.
And the world will know.
I say I will not lie.
You know more lovers than one for some become a necessity.
My baby keeps rolling me.

Live on stage.
Exposing my jealous rage.
Life can be complicated.

I give you something you can talk about.
Love is like a prison and you can't get out.
These things are hard to find.
You say the world is flat but...

I don't want to live like that.
No, I don't want to live like that.
Don't want to live like that.
No, I don't want to live like that, live like that.
Just another voice in the wilderness.

Walking through the fire.
Running like a river 'til the race is won.
I'm risking everything to be someone.
I will stick by you.
We know but we will not fail.
Lifting of the spirit and the flesh prevails.
And the fight is on.
This love, it keeps rolling on.

Watch me fly
into the clear blue sky.
This is the age of wonder.
I am the one.

I don't want to live like that.
No, I don't want to live like that.
I don't want to live like that, live like that.
Just another voice in the wilderness.


JUST IN CASE

Well, it seems every night and day, I get to lose.
And I always held the faith inside
that love would find a way.
And I always reached for more than the others ever saw.
I was always the first to follow my foolish prayer.
And the feeling that I have is more than any soul could bear.
Hold me when I wake.
Then I can be sure of who I am.
I'm half the man I should be, when you're gone.

And you're telling me this is love,
but just in case, keep my heart in a secret place,
safe under lock and key, 'til I know it's only me.
One of us got to be the one that's true.
One for the other and the love comes through.
Right here or out in space.
Give my heart to you, babe, but just in case.
Yeah, just in case.

Tell the world that I've come to claim your tomorrows.
Let the universal word go out a million miles away.
And let history show.
On the wind the seed is sown.
We are living in a time where the tears fall where they might,
but we hear each other much more than those who see.
We are not alone.
Love is there for everyone who needs
and for anyone who cries.
I will always have you here with me.
Oh.

And you're telling me this is love,
but just in case, keep my heart in a secret place,
safe under lock and key, til I know it's only me.
One of us has got to be the one that's true.
One for the other and the love comes through.
Yours, mine, and face to face,
give my heart to you,
but just in case.
Yeah, just in case.

Ah, oh baby, ah, oh, oh baby, ah.

And you're telling me this is love,
but just in case, keep my heart in a secret place,
safe under lock and key, til I know it's only me.
One of us has got to be the one that's true.
One for the other and the love comes through.
Yours, mine, and face to face.


I WILL BE THERE

This is the life you saved laid out before you.
Everything that I think I have been and what I am now.
Nothing can change the way I feel about you.
Better we go on our separate ways.
Nothing is left but the endless days.
Nothing to cry but your name.

Don't you look back, don't say a word.
I will be lonely for you, I will be standing for you.
Don't you despair.
I will be there for you.
Farewell to you, goodbye for me.
I will be waiting for you, I will be lonely for you.
Don't you despair.
I will be there for you.
Oh, oh.
I will be there.
Oh, oh.
I will be there.

Maybe this time next year we'll be together.
You can wipe away all of the tears, bring truth to the lies.
There was a silent dream, we made a promise,
we'd be there for each other forever.
Borne like a ship on the ocean's roar.
Beating a path to your open door.
Nothing will keep me away.

Don't you look back, don't say a word.
I will be lonely for you, I will be standing for you.
Don't you despair.
I will be there for you.
Each night I pray to God above
you will be waiting for me, you will be lonely for me.
Don't you despair.
I will be there for you.
Oh, oh.
I will be there.
Oh, oh.
I will be there.
Oh, oh.
I will be there.
Oh, oh.
I will be there.
Oh, oh.
I will be


PROMISE THE EARTH

It's not worth one night on earth,
baby I know, baby I know.
I won't know whose lips you're kissing,
baby I know.
You don't know what you have done,
baby I know, baby don't go.
You don't know what you are missing,
baby, and so...

there's not a sacrifice too strong
I've been alone for far too long.
I'd be a fool to fail, I follow you.
You must believe.

Promise the earth.
Give her the ocean.
A kiss on the wind goes straight to the heart.
Promise the earth
with tears of emotion
if fate is a force that tears you apart.

Please believe me, I would sell my soul for you.
It's not too late.
And we can turn back the time.

Baby I know
I lay down with you in dreams.
Baby I know, baby don't go.
I was driven by this vision,
baby, and so...

if I could testify to you
then I could prove my aim is true,
if I am guilty or I'm innocent,
you must believe.

Promise the earth.
Give her the ocean .
A kiss on the wind, goes straight to the heart (baby believe).
Promise the earth
with tears of emotion
if fate is a force that tears you apart.

You know I'm only human, so what am I supposed to say.
(Of) course I'm gonna miss you and curse the day you went away.
What I would surrender, if I could make you turn around.
The world we've got together, forever is on solid ground.

Oooh, baby don't go.
Baby don't go.
Baby don't go.
Baby.
You're part of every dream
before the dawn.
You must believe.

Promise the earth.
Give her the ocean.
A kiss on the wind, goes straight to the heart (make her believe).
Promise the earth
with tears of emotion
if fate is a force that tears you apart.

Baby believe.
Promise the earth.
Give her the ocean.
A kiss on the wind, goes straight to the heart.
Promise the earth
with tears of emotion
if fate is a force that tears you apart.

Baby believe.
Promise the earth.
Promise the earth.
Promise the earth.
Promise the earth.
You better believe.
