LIFE GOES ON


Throw your wishes down the well
Feed your conscience blood and wine
There are secrets I've yet to tell
Kiss the sun and say goodbye

Want it - need it
Turn the pages and read between the lines

With or without you - life goes on
With or without you

You see pictures in black and white


But there are colors inbetween
As the morning turns to night
Will you give me what I need

Begging, pleading
Can you feel the distance in between

With or without you - life goes on
With or without you - oh
Feelin' strong - I will live without you yeah

You can live inside of your ordinary world
You can hide inside of your mind
You can dream of a more extraordinary world
Where you are out of my life

You see pictures in black and white
There's no colors in between
As the darkness turns to light
Will you give me what I need

 

With or without you - life goes on
With or without you oh - feelin' strong
I will live without you yeah - life goes on
With or without you oh - feelin' strong


I will live, live yeah
I will live, live yeah
I will live, live yeah
I will live without you

 
STATE OF MIND

The night comes quicker now
Colors start to fade into dreams again
How many empty hours
Do I have to fill, til I see you again


I still believe in luv
I believe in you, believe in what we started
A long time ago, until you left me broken hearted

And I still see you when I close my eyes
Baby luv's a state of mind
And I believe we belong together
Giving up would be a crime

I see the stars in your eyes
All this time you kept me here
How many sleepless nights do I have to spend til I feel you again
Close to me, close to you
Right back where we started
A long time ago - until you left me broken hearted

And I still see you when I close my eyes
Baby luv's a state of mind
I believe we belong together
And giving up would be a crime

Show me the way to your heart
Where to begin
What are your dreams and who you are
The sky is clear and the thunder is gone
Show me the way

And I still see you when I close my eyes

Baby luv's a state of mind

I believe we belong together

And giving up would be a crime

 
MORE THAN I DO

The road leads you back to where you started
And time won't erase the echos that you're hearin'
and you're wonderin' will it be the same again
I don't know and I don't mind
All your fears and all your dreams are left behind

No one will luv you more
No one will give you more than I
More than I do
No one will treat you better
No one will luv you more than I
More than I do

The more that you give the more it takes
And the light in your eyes shows me all you've been through
And it makes me wanna give you everything
But would you take it from me
You gotta reacquaint your mind with everything inside
Just sit right back and watch it come alive

No one will luv you more

No one will give you more than I

More than I do

No one will treat you better

No one will luv you more than I

More than I do

I don't wanna play these games, we're runnin' out of time
Darlin' it would be a shame to let it all pass by

No one will luv you more

No one will give you more than I

More than I do

No one will treat you better

No one will luv you more than I

More than I do


I wish you luv, I wish you luv
More than I do
I wish you luv, I wish you luv
More than I do

No one will luv you more

No one will give you more than I

More than I do

No one will treat you better

No one will luv you more than I

More than I do

The road leads you back to where you started

 
LAST CHANCE

Since the first day that I saw you
From the moment our eyes met
I put my heart out on the table
But you weren't able to let me in

All the years that I've been dreamin'
For one as sweet as you
And now you're here, the door is open
But I am frozen
Oh baby won't you come in, come in, come in
And break the chains around me

Feels like the last chance to break the spell
(gotta break it) - oh it's living hell
We can make it right together
Forever, just you and me - let it be

Feels like a hundred thousand years
Since I locked my soul away
Well she was beautiful like an angel
And like a devil, she blew me away
And like a situation comedy
Scripted for a fool
I couldn't find a better part for me
I was too blind to see
I was blinded, blinded, blinded
And now it's all too clear

Feels like the last chance to break the spell
(gotta break it) - oh it's living hell
We can make it right together - forever

'Cause it's the last chance to make it right
Gotta make it right
It's the last chance - ooh ooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 
LUV YOU MADLY

I can't change you
I can't change your point of view
But I can luv you madly
I can't save you
I can barely save myself
But I can luv you madly
You're so special
Every time you say my name the past becomes a dream

I've been waiting so long
To have an understanding of the world and it's ways
I'm so close to breaking
All of the rules are changing as time has it's way with me

My heart races
It's like a train out of control, it jumps the tracks again
You forgave me but how do I forgive myself
And get back on the game

I've been waiting so long

To have an understanding of the world and it's ways

I'm so close to breaking

All of the rules are changing as time has it's way with me

Nothing I can say will change your mind
Nothing I can do will make it up to you
Nothing I can feel
What more can I say, I was blinded

I can't change you
I can't change your mind
I can't save you no, no, no
I can't save you this time
I can luv you - ooh
I wanna luv you madly - yeah
I need to luv you badly - ooh
I wanna luv you
I wanna luv you baby
I need to luv you baby
I wanna luv you baby I do, I do, I do

I've been waiting so long
To have an understanding of the world and it's ways
I'm so close to breaking
All of the rules are changing as time has it's way
I've been waiting so long

 
GEM

She was handed down like an angel
Bearing gifts of luv i've never seen
Dropped 'em in my lap then stands before me
Waiting so patiently
Gazing down upon me so mysterious
Eyes of topaz and the finest jade
Pulls me in I'm slowly captivated
What was I waiting for

When she's lying there beside me
Mesmerized within her spell
Such a dreamlike fascination as my heart begins to swell

And just in the nick of time
I noticed the gem you are
I hoped but I never thought you'd come

Electric how you shocked me
Woke me up and tuned me into you
Every passing day and night you rock me
A dream come true
All my jagged edges how they shine now
I always a diamond in the rough
Even when you wrap those arms around me
It's never enough - I need all of your luv

When she's lying there beside me
Mesmerized within her spell
Such a dreamlike fascination as my heart begins to swell

And just in the nick of time
I noticed the gem you are
I hoped but I never thought you'd come
You cured me with all your heaven
Bliss the best medicine
Surely you knew it all along
How I longed for your luv

I'm under lock and key now
The keeper of my heart you have become
Protected by the power you possess me
I'm saved by the sun
Baby in my final hour of darkness you cast the light of luv into my eyes
You always said you travel with the moon girl
A star in the night - I realize

And just in the nick of timeI noticed the gem you are

I hoped but I never thought you'd come

You cured me with all your heaven

Bliss the best medicine

Surely you knew it all along

How I longed for your luv

 
YOU ARE THE ONE

Don't take me for granted
I can't carry the weight this time
If I could I don't want to baby
My heart's on the line
I just wanna be close to you
Nobody makes me feel like you do
Can't get you off my mind
There's nowhere to hide

You are the one that will show me
And you are the one who will break the chains
You are the one who will show me
You are the one

I luv you baby
It's never been so easy for me to say
I need you baby, don't go away
Will it always be this easy
If I move to fast will you slip through my hands
You mean the world to me, you are everything

You are the one that will show me
And you are the one who will break the chains
You are the one who will show me
You are the one

You are different from the rest
You give completley and you'll take nothing less
Than the best of me and the rest of me
It's plain to see - we were meant to be

Don't take me for granted
I can't carry the weight this time
You mean the world to me, you are everything

You are the one that will show me
And you are the one who will break the chains
You are the one who will show me
You are the one
You are the one
You are the one
You are

you

 
FADED

Restless and a little bit jaded
Dreams are spinning in circles 'round my mind
And someday I'll learn not to fight it
And my dreams will unravel
And I'll realize them

I don't know how to let myself go
And be guided through the storm
Let the rain pour down on this lonely little town
As long as we're together, I am found

Inside out, upside down, turn me around
Inside out, upside down, turn me around
I'm faded

You can't force it but you can guide it
Then you'll learn how to ride it
Sometimes you're just holding on
I am certain you can make it happen
If we learn how to live together we don't have to walk alone

Inside out, upside down, turn me around

Inside out, upside down, turn me around
I'm faded and I'm running in cirles

I don't know why you can justify the meaning
Keeping it all for your own
I would give anything just to find the meaning
Just to find the way

It's been a long time and I've kept my spirit high
Hoping to find some meaning in these crazy times

Sometimes I feel like we've all lost our minds
Learing to work together we can fly

Inside out, upside down, turn me around

Inside out, upside down, turn me around

Inside out baby
You got me upside down - oh yeah
You got me runnin'

I'm runnin', I'm running around
I'm runnin' I'm runnin'
I'm running around and round and round and round
Aah, aah, aah, aah

 
GIRL


Everything changes when you least expect
Time spent with strangers is all you might get
The years seem to pass now you feel no regrets at all

Then there was you girl
I thought I saw you falling for me
Girl, you knocked me out I never saw you coming

Heaven can't wait no more

Tasting the fruits and rewards of it all
You're living so sheltered so safe in these walls
You're intoxicating euphoria calls again

Then there was you girl
I thought I saw you falling for me
Girl, you knocked me out I never saw you coming

Heaven can't wait no more

And anything you want I'll give you it all
Come and take it we're gonna make it
Anything you need I'm here for it all
Come and take it we're gonna make it
Come and take it we're gonna make it

Girl, I thought I saw you falling for me
Girl, you knocked me out I never saw you coming
Girl, so long I've waited anticipated
Girl, you're all I wanted and now I got it
Heaven can't wait no more

 
SOMETHING'S WAITING

I have been waiting, watching the fire burn
I am still looking
I have been listening, waiting for some word from you
Darling won't you

Trust in the notion that wishes come true
Understand it - you're not very far

Taking your time, knowing that something is waiting for you
Making it right

The luv that's inside you will always shine through

You're so understated, you're so damn frustrated
Don't underestimate me
You're so hard to handle
Never surrender, we can find the way

Trust in the notion that wishes come true
Understand it - you're not very far

Taking your time, knowing that something is waiting for you
Making it right

The luv that's inside you will always shine through

(Inside you will always shine through)

Life has a funny way of enlightening
(Life has a funny way of enlightening)
Life has a funny way of enlightening
(Life has a funny funny way)
Face all the things that you're up against
Don't let the dark bring you down
Life has a funny way of enlightening

Taking your time
Knowing that something is waiting for you
Making it right
The luv that's inside you will always shine
Taking your time
Knowing that something is waiting for you
Making it right
The luv that's inside you will always shine
(Inside you will always shine through)
Through you, through you, through you
Ooh ooh ooh, aah aah

 
HIGHWAY SONG

Some ride on the highway, some walk in the shadows
I wanna ride it my way
Such a long way down
I walk through the valley, the alley's
Searching for what I don't know
Well these questions inside of me, they won't go

I wanted to luv you but my back's against the wall
And it doesn't always turn out the way you thought

Street lights light my way and I know all the choices I've made
Carve my way through to a different place
Well baby, what I'd give
One more night, what I'd do

I wanted to luv you but my back's against the wall
And it doesn't always turn out the way you thought
It doesn't matter how many times that you fall
You gotta get back on the highway
You gotta get back on the highway and drive on

Gone, never looks back
Gone, never looks back

Baby these are anxious times
So beware how you use your mind
It is what it is and it is what you make of it
It is what it is and it is what you make of it
It is what it is and it is what you make of it
It is what you make of it

 

I wanted to love you but my back's against the wall
And it doesn't always turn out the way you thought
It doesn't matter how many times that you fall
You gotta get back on the highway
You gotta get back on the highway
You gotta get back on the highway and drive on

 
HOME

I try to fight it but it won't let me go
You try to hide it still it always finds away to show
It's time to live what I've imagined for so long
This girl has got to know


I'll take you with me everywhere I go
No sacrificing what I need to carry on
I move like a gypsy never knowing what's ahead
This road it never ends

My heart is my home, it always seems to know
Yes my heart is my home
I take it with me everywhere I go

Well I've been dreaming through the colors of my mind
I try like everyone to find a way and let it shine
I hear the angels whispering at night
Let luv show the way
Our luv will remain

My heart is my home, it always seems to know

Yes my heart is my home

I take it with me everywhere I go

If you could only see the light shining back at you so bright
Look inside and you will find the way
'Cause you will always be the one that I run to in the end
I'll be here for you to lean on anytime at all
Ooh - anytime at all - ooh

I've been dreaming through the colors of my mind

Heart is my home, it always seems to know
Yes my heart is my home
I'll take you with me everywhere I go
Because my heart is my home

Hear the angels - whispering my name they call me
Hear the angels - whispering my name I hear them
Hear the angels - whispering my name
Let luv show us the way
Luv will show the way
Luv will show the way
