HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART

I can think of younger days
when living for my life
was everything a man could want to do.
I could never see tomorrow,
but I was never told about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?

How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart
and let me live again.

I can still feel the breeze
that rustles through the trees
and misty memories of days gone by.
We could never see tomorrow,
no one said a word about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?

How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart
and let me live again.


ISRAEL

You've had your troubles,
Israel, I've seen them all,
but you put the writing on the wall,
Israel, Israel, yeah.

You know I've seen you fall so many times.
I've cried for you and that's a crime.

Israel, Israel,
let me,
Israel,
where there's sand,
where there’s beautiful sand, yeah.

Israel,
you know you got a kind of feeling
that's just grand.

Take me into your arms,
let me be with you,
Israel, Israel, Israel.

I like the smiles up on your people's faces.
They make you feel warm embraces.
And I want that kind of smile,
that kind of smile.

Israel, you make the whole world think about you.
And if they don't, they'll find a reason
to shout about
Israel, Israel.

You're the only one,
Israel, Israel.

Israel,
tell me all about it.
Tell me all about it.
Israel,
tell me all about it.

Oh Israel, take me into your arms
and make me feel your goodness.
Be with me Israel.
Hey hey hey hey.

Israel
Oh oh oh
Israel
Oh oh oh
Israel
Oh Take me into your arms.
Let me hold hold you to myself.
Oh I want to Israel.

Israel
Oh
Israel
Oh
Israel
Oh take me back into into your arms.
Israel Israel Israel Israel.
Ah
Israel, Israel.
I wanna hear about.


THE GREATEST MAN IN THE WORLD

Before I heard your voice
I never heard a sound like that before.
I wanna hear it more and more.

Take me to heaven.
My love is stronger than the wall.
I'll climb it till I fall
so I can hear you call
your love.

I'd be the greatest man in the world
'cause I can say I got the greatest girl.
I'd be the greatest man in the world
'cause I can say I got the greatest girl.

Before I saw your face
I never saw a dream like that before.
I wanna see it more and more.

Take me to heaven.
My love is stronger than the wall.
I'll climb it till I fall
so I can hear you call
your love.

Be the greatest man in the world
'cause I can say I've got the greatest girl.
Be the greatest man in the world
'cause I can say I got the greatest girl,
the greatest girl.

Be the greatest man in the world.
Oh. Be the greatest man in the world.
Be the greatest man, the greatest man in the world.
The greatest man, be the greatest man in the world.
...


IT'S JUST THE WAY

It's just the way that I feel about tomorrow.
I'll be sad and alone all the time.
It's just the way that you said
you don't love me anymore,
then goodbye.

I can't believe what you're saying.
You don't love me anymore.
Goodbye.

Just the way that I feel about tomorrow.
Knowing you won't be there by my side.
I wish that I could say to you;
well, can't we just be good friends?

Would you leave the door open,
let me walk in again?

That's the way I been thinking 'bout tomorrow.
I only know that friends can't be lovers again.


REMEMBERING

I never really want to be alone.
I had a woman once in my life
but now she's flown.
Every night I keep seeing her face.

I never really broke her heart.
She was a part of me.
But that's the way it was.
Now we live separately.

When will you walk through this door, babe?
When you left I fell to pieces.
But now I feel as good as if I were dead.

I'll keep remembering
all my life,
remembering
when you were my wife.

Remembering
all my life.
And I'm facing a life
that I must go through
remembering.

I first set my eyes on you
one cold February.
You made me go out of my way
to make me feel fine.

Oh, but when will you walk through this door, babe?
When you left I fell to pieces.
Now I feel as good as good as if I were dead.

I'll keep remembering
all my life,
remembering
when you were my wife.

Remembering
all my life.
And I'm facing a life
that I must go through
remembering.


SOMEBODY STOP THE MUSIC

I arise,
try to see my face through my disguise.
And on the balcony
I knew inside of me it will be done.

Somebody stop the music.
Somebody stop the tune.
Somebody crown the clown with the red balloon.

Somebody stop the music.
Somebody stop the tune.
Somebody crown the clown with the red balloon.

I arose,
the truth will out the more I see it grows.
It's not a mystery,
no one was hiding it from me.

Somebody stop the music.
Somebody stop the tune.
Somebody crown the clown with the red balloon.

Somebody stop the music.
Somebody stop the tune.
Somebody crown the clown with the red balloon.

Don't love ya, baby don't love ya.
Don't love ya, baby don't love ya.
Don't love ya, baby don't love ya.
Don't love ya, baby don't love ya.
Don't love ya, baby don't love ya.

Yeah, today I saw the sun, the sun.


TRAFALGAR

I rolled into the smoke
and there I lost my hope.
I need someone to know me
and to show me.

The square peg fits the hole.
Why haven't I been told?
I need someone to know me
and to show me.

Trafalgar,
Trafalgar,
Trafalgar,
please don't let me down.

Ten hundred people roam
through the place I call my home.
I need someone to know me
and to show me.

Sitting cross-legged on my own
and yet I'm not alone.
Don't need no one to show me.
No one owns me.

Trafalgar,
Trafalgar,
Trafalgar.

Trafalgar,
Trafalgar,
Trafalgar,
please don't let me down.

Trafalgar,
Trafalgar,
Trafalgar.


DON'T WANT TO LIVE INSIDE MYSELF

I am the searcher of my fortunes.
I've got my right hand on the wheel.
We've got to dig the buried treasures.
I know exactly how I feel.

Don't want to live inside myself.
I'm much better off alone.
But then you must believe in
the falling rain.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.

I went walking through a graveyard
where the darkness is my friend.
I heard all about the beginning.
I wanna see just where it ends.

Don't want to live inside myself.
I'm much better off alone.
But then you must believe in
the falling rain.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.

I have fed the jaded tiger.
And every tiger knows my name.
But just as long, as long as I can see my face
I can tell myself my name.

Don't want to live inside myself.
I'm much better off alone.
But then you must believe in
the falling rain.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
Don’t wanna live inside myself.
...


WHEN DO I

Tell me if dreams do come true.
If so then I know that I'm losing you.
And you know the address where we live.
But I swear there'll be no turning back to you.
I won't forgive.

When do I and when do I
know if there's an answer why?
I wonder if I know where I fit in.

How do I and how do I
stop myself from gonna cry?
I wonder if I know where I fit in.

Tell me if dreams do come true.
If so then I know that I'm losing you.
And you know the address where we live.
But I swear there'll be no turning back to you.
I won't forgive.

When do I and when do I
know if there's an answer why?
I wonder if I know where I fit in.

And how do I and how do I
stop myself from gonna cry?
I wonder if I know where I fit in.

And when do I and when do I,
when do I
when do I
know if I fit in?


DEAREST

I hear you calling me 'dearest' too.
My dearest,
I'm nearest than I've ever been before
to have you calling me 'dearest' once more.

My dearest, this picture,
my own memory,
wishing this picture be reality.

Where do I go from here?
The lord took you away.
And if you could see me today.
I will remember you.
I will remember you.

My dearest, sincerest,
there's no one but you and
here in my heart
you're my dearest too.

Where do I go from here?
The lord took you away.
And if you could see me today,
I will remember you.
I will remember you.

My dearest, sincerest,
there's no one but you and
here in my heart
you're my dearest too.


LION IN WINTER

Lion in my winter.
I'm a lion with no crown.

You wanna make me big man,
a star on a screen,
some kind of James Brown,
or something in between.

But when I look for money
you smother me in charms.
I can't live on glory
when you’re bending both my arms.

I, I was a lion in winter.
And, man, I had friends
for miles around.
I was a lion in my winter.
What good's a lion, lord,
without a crown.

You're living in a cave, man,
upon your marble throne.
You think you own the heavens,
but you've got to be alone.

You know, you know I prayed for sunshine,
a woman with my name.
I don't want to live, man,
you gave away the game.

I, I was a lion in winter.
And, man, I had friends
for miles around.
I was a lion in my winter.
What good's a lion, lord,
without a crown.

I was a lion in my winter.
What good's a lion, lord,
without a crown.
...

WALKING BACK TO WATERLOO

I wish there was another year, another time
when people sang and poems rhymed.
My name could be Napoleon.
A thousand ships.
A windy sail, so huge and high,
it's tall enough to touch the sky.
It's beautiful but hard to find.
But I just wasn't born in time.

Walking back to Waterloo again.
Where do I begin?
In the brand new street,
you can get a good seat at the end.

I can dream
of growing trees and things that live
and grass that's green
in meadows that have never been.
But I still place my trust in the Queen.

What is life
when a man is pressured
based on wrong or right?
And I don't know what it means.
There must be more we haven't seen.

Walking back to Waterloo again.
Where do I begin?
In the brand new street,
you can get a good seat at the end.

Walking back to Waterloo again.
Where do I begin?
In the brand new street,
you can get a good seat at the end

Walking back to Waterloo again.
Where do I begin?
In the brand new street,
you can get a good seat at the end.
