- S -
Sailing ships from heaven
And she played the harmonium down by the sea,
Singing, "God save the USA and God save me",
And though God never had, she believed him to be
On his way.

She had lived out in Paris before Paris fell,
Singing, "When will I hear again from Jean-Michel?"
And she prayed for his soul and she hoped he was well
Anyway.

Refrain:
Hold on, for the sailing ships from heaven won't be long.
Play on, till the sailing ships from heaven come along.

And she laughed, "Don't be sad like the boys in the trees;
They're only waiting for the world to freeze."
She said, "When they were young they went down on their knees
For my love."

[Refrain]

And she walked on the beach in the wind and the rain,
Singing, "Why don't you ask me why I feel no pain?
And the reason that keeps me from going insane?
- It's my love."

[2 x Refrain]

Something in the shadows
Thereís something in the shadows, waiting.
I hope I am hallucinating.
I can hear it breathing now, itís crawling around.
There is something watching me again from a crack in the rocks:
Take me home,
Wake me up or turn me off.

Daylight is no consolation,
It feels so dark.

My heart has started palpitating.
I still hear something respirating.
I think I might have seen its eyes, I cannot be shure,
There is something watching me again from a crack in the rocks:
Take me home,
Wake me up or turn me off.
Take me home,
Wake me up or turn me off.

Secret Symphony
(Mike Batt)

Youíre like a secret symphony that was created just for me
Some knowing mind some guiding hand
Must have designed, must have planned it.

Youíre like a garden in a land
Of barren rock and lonely sand,
Where rain can fall
Where grass can grow,
And through it all, I can love you so.

Isnít it strange but itís only a feeling,
Isnít it weird it feels like Iím stealing your soul?
Isnít it wild, this world we know now?
It's gonna be fine wherever we go now

Youíre like a prayer I was scared to say
The one who might have got away
Somebody worth all IĎve had to face
No one on earth could replace you.

Youíre like a secret symphony that was created just for me
Some knowing mind some guiding hand
Must have designed, must have planned it.

Sometimes when Iím dreaming
All the friends I believed in,
I believed in for a while.
They had their flair,
They had their style.
But nobody quite
Got it right;
Nobody knew
Just how it feels to be
Me.

Refrain:
But sometimes when Iím dreaming,
(And I dreamed a lot these days)
I need someone who understands,
Who leads me through the haze
Itís only when Iím dreaming
That I fall in love for real,
But I wake up screaming,
Sometimes when Iím dreaming.

And itís now that I need a friend,
I reach out for the phone,
Nobodyís there, nobodyís home.
Though it may not be right,
To give up the fight,
Iím sailing away,
Now Iím on my own
Alone.

[Refrain]
But sometimes...

But I wake up screaming,
Sometimes when Iím dreaming.

Short back and sides

Well I used to have long hair, right to the floor
The chicks used to love me and come back for more
Then I met a girl with big green eyes
She said "I only love boys with short back and sides"

Get your hair cut boy - uhuhuhu
Oh give me short back and sides
Oh give me short back and sides,
Give me short back and sides
Or my baby won't love me no more

Well I went to the barber's, I sat in a chair,
I said "I love that little doll and so I just don't care"
But when he started snipping there was tears in my eyes
I said "I hope she's gonna like me with my short back and sides"

Got my hair cut, girl - uhuhuhu
Oh short back and sides, short back and sides
Oh give me short back and sides
Or my baby won't love me no more

Looked out the window from the barber's chair
Just as he finished shaving off all my hair
But what should I see but the big green eyes
Of my girlfriend walking with some long-haired guys

She was laughing at me - uhuhuhu
With my short back and sides, short back and sides
I've got short back and sides
Now nobody loves me no more
I've got short back and sides, short back and sides
I've got short back and sides
Now nobody loves me no more


Somewhere in the same hotel
(Katie Melua / Mike Batt)

Somewhere in the same hotel,
Was it in the bar?
I saw you once, but I donít know who you are.
I donít usually obsess, but I confess,
I wish I knew you well.
All I know is, here I am and there you are, somewhere in the same hotel.

Somewhere in the same hotel,
Yesterday we passed again,
And I thought you looked my way.
I donít want for this to be a fantasy,
But as far as I can tell,
Youíre alone just like me, here at night, somewhere in the same hotel.

Maybe youíre in the next room?
Or just across the hall?
Maybe somebodyís waiting,
At home for you to call?

Iím yearning in the morning light,
Of the dawning day,
Cos we missed our chance,
And I have to go away.
I donít even know youíre name?
But all the same,
I hope youíre sleeping well,
If youíre still there all alone,
Cos Iím no longer,
Somewhere in the same hotel.

Summertime city
In the cool light of the dawn when the sky wakes and the sun shines on the boulevard,
In the town where I was born I am sitting thinking about you, wondering where you are.
Darling, I got the sun but when it shines I know I need you.

So baby get down (Get down, get down to the Summertime City.)
Come on down to the Summertime City.
Baby get down. (Get down, to the Summertime City.)
Come on down to the Summertime Sound.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on,
Kick off your shoes 'cos Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.

I was lying alone on the beach with the warm sound of the sea moving behind me.
But I knew you were out of reach and it seemed the sun was shining just to remind me.
Baby, without you, you know it might as well be raining.

So baby get down (Get down, get down to the Summertime City.)
Come on down to the Summertime City.
Baby get down. (Get down, to the Summertime City.)
Come on down to the Summertime Sound.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on,
Kick off your shoes 'cos Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.

Baby get down (Get down, get down to the Summertime City.)
Come on down to the Summertime City.
Baby get down. (Get down, to the Summertime City.)
Come on down to the Summertime Sound.
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on,
Kick off your shoes 'cos Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.

Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.
Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.
Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.
Summertime City, ain't got the summertime blues.
 
Scary films

Scary films donít scare me now,
That youíre around.
Since you been around;
Nowadays I never cry,
When the monster kills the guy,
And the psychopathic wife kills the husband with a knife.

Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams,
Of all those horror scenes,
Which crept in uninvited.
Iím in love and Iím so excited,
Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams.

Scary films just make me smile,
When you are here.
When you are here.
In your arms Iím not afraid,
When the aliens invade.
And the vampireís just a joke,
ĎCause I know heís just a bloke.

Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams,
Of all those horror scenes,
Which crept in uninvited.
Iím in love and Iím so excited,
Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams.

Zombies marching through the mist,
Make me think of being kissed.
And I donít care when peoplesí heads,
End up being torn to shreds.

Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams,
Of all those horror scenes,
Which crept in uninvited.
Iím in love and Iím so excited,
Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams.

Thanks for clearing my dreams

Shooting star
(lyrics by Don Black)
?

Shy boy
I'm sittin' in the window of a street cafť,
Watchin' you walking by each day,
It seems that you always wanna look my way
Hey, you can't deny, boy,
You're such a shy boy.

So good looking you seem to be
But you're too tongue-tied to say hi to me,
You could make it happen so easily
Woah, I'll tell you why boy,
'Cos I'm looking for a shy boy

Most guys advertise
By making eyes and telling lies
If you only knew,
You could make your dreams come true
All you gotta do is ask me to

If this was a quiz on a TV show
And the prize was a guy who would love me so
Whatever they ask, the answer I know
Hey, my reply boy
Is gimme a shy boy.

Most guys advertise
By making eyes and telling lies
If you only knew
You could make your dreams come true
All you gotta do is ask me to

Some guys act a bit too sure
And maybe you're thinkin' that less is more
But Honey, you still gotta knock on my door
Hey, just try boy,
And you could be my boy

I'll tell you why boy
I'm looking for a shy boy,
Just try boy, you're such a shy boy

Sinking like a stone

Soldierís
song
The smoke was slowly rising as the light began to fade,
There were fires on the skyline from some distant border raid,
And I was riding out at seventeen to join my first brigade
Many years ago.

And I chanced upon a farmhouse where the woman took me in,
She gave me food and wine; she gave me shelter from the wind.
She delayed me from my regiment, and service of my king
Many years ago.

Refrain
:
And she said: "Soldier, before I lose you to the fight,
Oh my soldier, I'll make a man of you tonight."
She took me over in the fading fire-glow,
On that wild and misty night she was my woman.

And when I rose next morning I was gone before she stirred,
I tore myself away from there and left without a word,
The sound of distant infantry was the only thing I heard
On that morning.

And in that day I aged ten years and died a thousend deaths,
I learned the feel of frozen steel and fear within my breast,
But the lesson I'll remember till they lay to my rest
Keeps returning.

[Refrain]
"Soldier, before I lose you
...

And when the dice of war were thrown and victory was won,
My drunken young compatriots went out to have their fun,
And there was no single house they did not burn or over-run,
On that evening.

So I rode out to that place again as hard as I could ride,
But I found her by the trail along the lonely mountainside,
In the hands of those brave friends of mine she suffered and she died,
Many years ago.

[Refrain]
"Soldier, before I lose you
...

Straight to DVD
(Mike Batt / Katie Melua)

If they made a movie bout you and me
It would go straight to DVD
Though the musicís good, but the actingís not
There ainít no dialogue and there ainít no plot

If they made a film about me and you
It would never get a good review
You act so smooth in the steamy scenes
But there ainít no fire you donít know what it means

The movie of you and me would go straight to DVD
The story of you and me would go straight to DVD

Would it be a movie bout love or war
We donít even know what weíre fighting for
It was sometimes good and sometimes great
But mostly now itís like a boring date

The movie of you and me would go straight to DVD
The story of you and me would go straight to DVD

Now there are no surprises the temperature rarely rises
Maybe weíre just pretending thereíll be a happy ending

If they made a movie bout you and me
It would go straight to DVD
Though the musicís good but the actingís not
There ainít no dialogue and there ainít no plot

The movie of you and me would go straight to DVD
The story of you and me would go straight to DVD


Sunshine saturday (Seaside Special)
???


Surrender to the sun
I have been outmanoeuvred
And I have been invaded,
I have been overrun and infiltrated,
I have offered strong resistance
But youíve brought me to my knees.
You can lock me in your dungeon,
You can throw away the keys.

Refrain:
Ooh, itís easy, to surrender
When your time has come.
Ooh, donít leave me,
When the night surrenders to the sun.

Oh, we have cried the tears,
We have sustained the bruises.
Ant though I say Ąyou winď,
Nobody loses.
I have tried to turn around
And I have tried to walk away,
But the love that flows between us
Is growing stronger every day.

[2 x Refrain]

Thank you, stars
Some call it faith, some call it love.
Some call it guidance from above.
You are the reason we found ours,
So thank you stars.

Some people think it's far away,
Some know it's with them everyday.
You are the reason we found ours,
So thank you stars.

There are no winds that can blow it away on the air,
When they try to blow it away 's when you know it will always be there.

To some it's the strength to be apart,
To some it's a feeling in the heart.
And when you're out there on your own, it's the way back home.

There are no winds that can blow it away on the air,
When they try to blow it away 's when you know it will always be there.

Some call it faith, some call it love.
Some call it guidance from above.
You are the reason we found ours,
So thank you stars.
Thank you stars,
Thank you stars,
Thank you stars.


The face / The woman in the fairground
Iím loosing track of time
As I make my way
It seems no time at all
Since yesterday.

It must be many hours ago
I remember
I was falling slowly,
And I seemed to be staring at a face,
A face with no emotion.
It filled the sky from east to west
And north to south.
One heavy eye was slowly opening.
One heavy eye was slowly opening.

And just as I noticed that the face seemed familiar,
It smiled; and disappeared.

An
d though I remember everything
I canít remember anything.

I found myself in an old fairground.
Nobody around, just the sound of the wind.

Some bits of paper blowing on the ground
Made me look round,
And there she was
Standing so silently.

She said: ďSo you finally appeared:
I was beginning to presume
You would never come:
Take my hand and Iíll take you to the sunď.

Esa Clase De Locura (The Closest Thing To Crazy)
Como se pueden imponer
Los sueŮos a la realidad
Cůmo puede doler la piel
De placer y de soledad

Cůmo me puedes dar razůn
Y no dejarme ver la luz
Cůmo puedo morirme yo
Cůmo puedes matarme tķ

Refrain:
Es esa clase de locura que me sienta bien
A sentir amor, vuelvo a la niŮez
La misma clase de locura que no tiene fin
Nunca estuve loca, ahora sŪ
Y sť muy bien que la locura para mi
Es sufrir y disfrutar la vida junto a ti...

Cůmo me puedes lastimar
Y luego darme tanto amor
Es tan fŠcil hacer llorar
Y tan dulce pedir perdůn

Cůmo me obligas a tener
Un corazůn tan infantil
Cůmo puedo seguir de pie?
Y olvidarme de ser feliz

[Refrain]

The house of the clown
Some people think I'm a mad man,
Some people think I'm a clown.
But nobody knows where the joker goes,
In the night when the sun goes down.
So, even if you look like an angel,
I won't let you get too close,

'Cos it's a long, long, long way round,
And there ain't no signs to the house of the clown.
It's a long, long, long way round,
You'll never find your way to the house of the clown.

Well I met her down at the edge of town,
I said, I don't wanna know your name.
You can dance to the sound of the circus ground,
But I ain't gonna play no games.
But she said she just wanted to laugh with me,
But she didn't get a chance to try.

'Cos it's a long, long, long way round,
And there ain't no signs to the house of the clown.
It's a long, long, long way round,
You'll never find your way to the house of the clown.

But she said she just wanted to laugh with me,
She didn't get a chance to try.

'Cos it's a long, long, long way round,
And there ain't no signs to the house of the clown.
It's a long, long, long way round,
You'll never find your way to the house of the clown.

'Cos it's a long, long, long way round,
And there ain't no signs to the house of the clown.
It's a long, long, long way round,
You'll never find your way to the house of the clown.

It's a long, long, long way round,
And there ain't no signs to the house of the clown.
It's a long, long, long way round,
You'll never find your way to the house of the clown.


The Humphrey song

The lion of Kandahar
Refrain:
Avenging angels or devils in disguise,
To each the same applies,
All strangers are Russian spies to the Lion of Kandahar.
All promises and words of love are lies,
There is no compromise,
Seen through the eyes of the Lion of Kandahar.

[Instrumental section]

Resist, delay, deny;
They will not break you now, though still they try.
One day they may understand,
This is the way God planned it.

[Refrain]

Old man, three times my age,
But still you cry like me with tears of rage.
The loving heart learns to hate,
No words can compensate now.

[Refrain] - [Guitar solo] - [Refrain] - [Instrumental section]

The ride to Agadir
We rode in the morning, Casablanca to the west.
On the Atlas Mountain Foothills leading down to Marakesh.
For Mohammed and Marocco we had taken up our guns,
For the ashes of our fathers and the children of our sons.
For the ashes of our fathers and the children of our sons.

In the dry winds of summer we were sharpening the blades.
We were riding to act upon the promise we had made.
With the fist and the dagger, with the rifle and the lance,
We will suffer no intrusion from the infidels of France.
We will suffer no intrusion from the infidels of France.

Refrain:
We could wait no more,
In the burning sands
On the ride to Agadir.
Like the dogs of war,
For the future of this land
On the ride to Agadir.

Though they were waiting, and they were fifty to our ten,
They were easily outnumbered by a smaller force of men.
As the darkness was falling they were soon to realise,
We were going to relieve them of their God-forsaken lives.
We were going to relieve them of their God-forsaken lives.

[Refrain]

Repeat Verse 1

The smile
Here we are again, it's the old clichť.
Surrounded by strangers and Sloan Street Rangers,
At the end of another boring day, in paradise.
Across a crowded room, there are no words that I can say.
So I'm sending you out a signal that we're soon gonna have to slip away.

Refrain:

It's all in the smile, the love I give to you.
I can't conceal the way I feel, it's all in the smile.
It's all in the eyes, the way I look at you,
Nobody knows but you and me, nobody hears, nobody sees.
It's all in the smile.

Out across the square, we make our getaway.
From the rows of Mercedes and the night club ladies,
And we hope that they all enjoy their stay, in paradise.
So here we are again, playing the games that people play.
There's a feeling that flows between us but I don't think I even have to say.

[Refrain]

It's all in the eyes, the way I look at you,
Nobody knows but you and me, nobody hears, nobody sees.
It's all in the smile.

It's all in the eyes,
It's all in the smile.

It's all in the eyes,
It's all in the smile.


The walls of the world
The sun is only shining like it always does,
But I never noticed it in the sky before.
And you don't need to worry, 'cause I need your love, my friend.
There's a strong kind of feeling when I know you're near,
Nobody alive can take it away from me;
And I feel like I've known you for a thousand years.
Bring it out into the light.

'Cause I think I'm gonna write
It on the walls of the world,
So everyone will know today
The love I hold for you.
I will write it on the walls of the world,
So that the sun won't fade away
The words I say to you,
I love you.

And I know I'm not a loser when I'm on my own,
I could be miles away in another land,
And it keeps me together when I'm far from home,
I won't keep it out of sight:

And I think I'm gonna write
It on the walls of the world,
So everyone will know today
The love I hold for you.
I will write it on the walls of the world,
So that the sun won't fade away
The words I say to you,
I love you.

The winds of change
We can't go on any more with this notion,
Just saving up to buy a ball and chain;
Seems it's all arranged.
You can't buy time and you can't buy emotion,
What have you and I been waiting for?

Refrain:
The winds of change are blowing hard in our direction,
We can't go back and we can't stand still;
The winds of change may try to blow away my affection,
But they never will.

They say in your life there's a tide for the taking,
And if you wait, they say it goes away;
It just flows away.
I know it may be a mistake we are making,
But if we don't try, we'll never know.

[Refrain]

The winners
Helena (A.M. Kaufmann)
When you try to go so high,
Donít look down,
Donít even think of falling,
As it all goes madly by,
You keep on,
Just as you always do.

By ready to risk it all,
Though Iíll never let you fall
If youíre here with me
Just remember

Refrain:
We will be the winners
Whoever may try to divide or come between us
We will be the winners,
Whatever they say as they try to bring us down
Thereís nothing they can do to me and you my friend,
We will be the winners in the end.

James (Joey Tempest)
Thereíll be tears along the way,
Donít look back
In times of pain and darkness
We will never let them say
We gave in;
Theyíll know we gave it all.
Nobody can take away
The feeling we feel today
If you are here with me
Just remember

[2 x Refrain / Helena & James]

We will be the winners in the end.


Too close to heaven
Refrain:
We came too close to heaven,
We strayed too far from the real world.
We came too close, now I can never fall in love again.
And though I tried to forget you,
I know I'll never forget you.
We came too close, we took each other too close to heaven.
Too close to heaven.

Nobody likes losing but why did we lose it all?
Sometimes the higher you fly, the harder you fall.
It's oh so confusing but one thing I'll always know,
We tried so hard and lost each other along the way.
We didn't just let go.

[Refrain]

We saw it so clearly, the view from the very top.
But sometimes, the better the view, the steeper the drop.
We made it so nearly. It seems only yesterday.
I can't explain though life goes on I still think of you.
You'll never fade away.

[Refrain]
[5 times] Too close to heaven.

The aftermath
2 x Refrain:

Caravans,
Oh, my soul is on the run,
Overland, I am flying;
Caravans,
Moving out into the sun,
Oh, I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going.

The bit that I donít get

The bit that I donít get, is how it changed so fast
How it changed from ďwe will always be togetherď
To ďit will never last.ď
The writing on the wall I hadnít seen it yet
When you told me you were tired of it all
Thatís the bit that I donít get.

So call me a fool, I do, but no longer the fool
Beside you and Iím learning from the pain
Wonít be doing that again.

The bit that I donít get, is how it changed so fast
How it changed from ďwe will always be togetherď
To ďit will never last.ď
The writing on the wall I hadnít seen it yet
When you told me you were tired of it all
Thatís the bit that I donít get.

People break up everyday
But I never thought I would wake up to hear you say
ďForeverď now means ďnever!ď

The bit that I donít get, is how it changed so fast
How it changed from ďwe will always be togetherď
To ďit will never last.ď
The writing on the wall I hadnít seen it yet
When you told me you were tired of it all
Thatís the bit that I donít get.

The c
losest thing to crazy

How can I think I'm standing strong,
Yet feel the air beneath my feet?
How can happiness feel so wrong?
How can misery feel so sweet?

How can you let me watch you sleep,
Then break my dreams the way you do?
How can I have got in so deep?
Why did I fall in love with you?

Refrain:
This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen,
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known,
I was never crazy on my own:
And now I know that there's a link between the two,
Being close to craziness and being close to you.

How can you make me fall apart
Then break my fall with loving lies?
It's so easy to break a heart;
It's so easy to close your eyes.

How can you treat me like a child
Yet like a child I yearn from you?
How can anyone feel so wild?
How can anyone feel so blue?

[Refrain]

The ears of the city
These crowded streets are full of people on htier own.
You are a stranger everywhere you go.
Nobody speaks in case some hidden microphone.
Should find them out.
They never smile,
They look right through you with a silence in their eyes;
And if you try,
To ask a question they will give you
Only one reply:

Refrain:
Donít ask me for a quote,
I cannot speak,
In the street,
Iíd be a fool
For you know when the Ears Of The City are listening to you.
Donít ask me for my time,
I cannot stay
In the street,
Go away,
Donít you know that the Ears Of The City are listening to you.

And then they turn and quickly walk the other way.
They will not wait, donít wanna get involved .
Someone is listening to everything they say
So they donít talk.
Keeping away from conversation is the one way to survive,
And if you just say, you want the time of day
Then answer with the same reply:

[Refrain]

The flame burns on
She is proud, she is bright,
She is loud, she's a dancer in the night,
She is faithful and strong
And I know that the flame burns on...

Refrain:
There is no feeling better than this
There is no way to get higher.
There's a flame burning deep in my soul
And my whole body's on fire,
And the flame burns on...

She is warm, she is sane,
She's a storm, she's a dancer in the rain
But she likes to belong
And she knows that the flame burns on...

[2 x Refrain]

The last thing that we need
Helena (A.M. Kaufmann)
There he was, itís such a silly way to meet;
In the supermarket
On the corner of the street,
Standing there
In that ordinary place
It happened that we first came face to face.

James (Joey Tempest)
I was a thousand miles away,
My thoughts were somewhere else that day,
But there she was
As I wandered slowly by,
In the supermarket
I accidentally caught her eye.

Helena
That was all, a fleeting glance;
No thoughts of real romance.

Helena & John
Still we talked
And we agreed to meet again
John
Though Iíve had enough of women
Helena
And Iíve had enough of men

Helena & John
Both of us concede,
To be lovers is the last thing that we need.

Helena
In any case my opera friends would never understand,
He is the singer in a band.


The night I dreamed I was awake
Strangely, my dream goes, and then I knew you were gone from me,
Called me, your voice spoke, and brought me back to reality.
And as the light began to break, I dreamed that I was wide awake,

Refrain:
Everything was falling down around me, and no-one found me,
And you were gone forever and I thought my heart would break,
The night I dreamed I was awake.

Freely, in darkness, I feel you back in my arms again.
Drifting, through warm sand, or riding out on a midnight train.
And all the time we've been apart, there's just one dream that broke my heart.

[Refrain]

[musical break]

[Refrain]

The night I dreamed I was awake.
And you were gone forever, the night I dreamed I was awake.
The night I dreamed I was awake.
You were gone forever the night I dreamed I was awake.


The view from a hill
Like the view from a hill, I can see you and me,
Like the view from a hill, it's so easy to see.
Here's where we belong, I feel it so strong
And I see it so clear, as I always will,
Like the view from a hill.

Like the bird in the sky, I can see us below.
As it all passes by, I believe that I know.
This feeling of love, seen from above,
Goes on and on, and it always will,
Like the view from a hill.

One day we may want to know:
Where did our short lives go?
How soon will it end?
How strong will it grow?

Like the view from a hill, I can see through the tears,
Like the view from a hill, I can see down the years.
Here's where we belong, I feel it so strong
And I see it so clear as I always will,
Like the view from a hill.

Like the view from a hill, I can see you and me,
Like the view from a hill, it's so easy to see.
Here's where we belong, I feel it so strong
And I see it so clear as I always will,
Like the view from a hill.
Like the view from a hill.
Like the view from a hill.

An Urpney.

No wimps are we,
We're braver than you'd think we would be,
And we're brighter than the average fighter,
That's why we all are Urpneys!

We are the Lord of Nightmare's troops,
Feared and revered by Wuts and Noops!

Tiger in the night
You are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night *
You are the one who keeps me strong in this world
You sleep by the silent cooling streams
Down in the darkness of my dreams
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I'd see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

I was the one who looked so hard I could not see.
Now I could never live without the love you give to me.

I lived like a wild and lonely soul,
Lost in a dream beyond control.
You were the one who brought me home down to earth.

For you are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I'd see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

* a little bit alike William Blake's (1757-1827) "The Tiger" ("The Tyger")

Two bare feet

Dancing cat and dancing mouse
Down behind the Hyatt House
You donít need no food to eat
All you need is two bare feet

Clock-house cuckoos drinking wine
Racing through those traffic signs
But walking out on Lazy Street
All you need is two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Crocodiles of sun-soaked kids
In sexy sandals, heaven forbid.
For kisses good enough to eat
all you need is two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

My eyes are open,
My feet are off the ground.
My ears are aching,
My head is full of sounds.

Refrain:
Itís no joke
When youíre floating in the night
That starts at the left and continues to the right;
Begins at the back and continues to the front;
Starts at the bottom and continues to the top;
All I can hear is voices in the dark,
I can get to sleep at night no more.
All I can hear is voices in the dark,
I can get to sleep at night no more.

Canít sleep at all tonight.

Waiting for a wave
I know I make for places that they say I'll never reach,
But sometimes I'm so aimless that I drift back to the beach,
And they are times I float around for days,
Waiting for a wave.

And when the hurricanes begin, out on the sea,
No-one tries to sail into the wind harder than me,
But they are times I float around for days,
Waiting for a wave.

Weather and closedown
The weather report for the night says
It will be stormy.
The man who told me this just left the T.V. screen.
My television receiver is
Sickeningly flickering before me.
I must remember to turn it off before God Save The Queen.

Wendy
Wendy, I set my eyes on you today.
Wendy, and when my friends come out to play.
I won't be there having fun, I'll be here, thinking of you, Wendy.
Ly, ly ly la, Ly, ly ly la,  Ly, ly ly la,

One day a girl I hold in high regard,
My Wendy, is gonna step inside my yard.
'Til that day, I'll be here, on my own, thinking of you, Wendy.
Ly, ly ly la, Ly, ly ly la, Ly, ly ly la.

'Til that day, I'll be here, on my own, thinking of you, Wendy.

Whatever you believe
If I told you today there's a god living on the moon
You wouldn't have to believe a word I say
You would always have the right to think I'm crazy

And if I choose to pray that the pain will be over soon
Nobody else in the world can take away
What I think and what I feel
Noone can sway me

Refrain:
Whatever you believe
Whatever love, whatever planet rules your heart
I won't try to make it fall apart
Whatever makes you strong,
Whatever lines you choose to live your life along
I will never say you're right or wrong
Even if I don't believe whatever you believe

What happens when you're sure that I'm wrong and you know you're right
You think you've found what we've all been searching for
And you want to change the world around to spite me.

What it says on the tin

How can I say it? Where do I begin,
Everything you are is just what it says on the tin.

Words that were honest, spoken from the heart,
Everything you did was just what you said from the start.

You are the angel with whom I would gladly live in sin,
Thanks for being exactly what it says on the tin.
I never doubted, and though I never shouted from the roof,
All about it, Iím with you every day as living proof.

Ainít gonna lose now, such a lot to win,
ĎCos I will always know youíre just what it says on the tin.

Winter song
When the silence wakes you, when your nights are long,
When the world forsakes you please be strong.
Nothing hurts you forever, it will fade away,
And the sky will be blue again, one day.

Refrain:
No matter how cold the winter, no matter how deep the snow,
We will be warm again and the grass will grow.
No matter where life may take us, no matter how hard they try,
They will not break us, you and I.

When it's dark inside you, when your flame is low,
I will be beside you, you will know.
Let it fall all around you, let the cold winds cry,
Let the old winds of yesterday blow by.

Warsaw
They tell me that she's alright in Warsaw,
But I don't believe anything they say.
I remember some crazy nights in Warsaw,
And it only seems like yesterday.
We tried to break away.

Refrain:
In Warsaw, a heart is breaking.
And now there's nothing we can do,
In Warsaw, she will be waiting,
But I can't go back again,
To Warsaw.

We knew at the start that it wouldn't be easy,
But we didn't think it would be so bad.
She gave up her heart and soul just to please me,
And I gave her everything I had.
Everything I had.

When you taught me how to dance
performed by Katie Melua
music by Nigel Westlake and Mike Batt / lyrics by Mike Batt and Richard Maltby Jr.

When you taught me how to dance
Years ago, with misty eyes
Every step and silent glance
Every move, a sweet surprise
Someone must have taught you well
To beguile and to entrance
For that night you cast your spell
And you taught me how to dance

Like reflections in a lake
I recall what went before
As I give, I'll learn to take
And will be alone no more
Other lights may light my way
I may even find romance
But I won't forget that night
When you taught me how to dance

Cold winds blow
But on those hills you'll find me
And I know
You're walking right behind me

When you taught me how to dance
Years ago, with misty eyes
Every step and silent glance
Every move, a sweet surprise
Someone must have taught you well
To beguile and to entrance
For that night you cast your spell
And you taught me how to dance

Where does the ocean go?
(Katie Melua / Mike & Luke Batt)

Through a cloudy haze on the sun lit sea
We waved them away from the southern key
17 hands but the one in charge
Was one fine man from the bio sauvage

Mon cher, senior keep cíest Caesar
I try not to show him the tear in my eye
I send my love Iíll wait for you
Farewell sweet boy from the one by you

(Chorus)
Where does the ocean go?
Should I let it take me?
Any second they may wake me
Does anybody know?
Where does the ocean go?

I knew back then as I always known
That say this pray is traitorís law
But the ship went down off the coast of Spain
I read the letter, felt his pain

(Chorus)

Some days I walk on the harbor side
And I watch the sea and the rising tide
And I see him there like a sand mirage
My last man in the moon du sauvage

(Chorus)

Does anybody know?
Where does the ocean go?

Who was the fool?
Why did this desolation pick on me tonight?
Why does this friendly room
Seem like a tomb without you?
You were my inspiration, you were my guiding light
You were the one I knew would see me through...

Refrain:
Who was the fool who said that only women bleed?
'Cause I am the fool who knows it isn't true;
Who was the fool who said that love is all you need?
I've got love but it's no good to me 'cause it's love for you.

In my imagination I still see you here,
And in this empty place I see your face beside me.
You're my hallucination, soon to disappear,
Only the pain I feel is there for real...

[Refrain]

[Instrumental solo]

[Refrain]

Why do I feel so good?
So here am I, travelling still,
To I donít know where.
Out on my own, travelling still,
Spinning in the air.

And if itís true that I am only a figment of someoneís imagination,
Why do I feel so good tonight?
Why do I feel so good tonight?
Why do I feel anything at all?

And if itís true that I am only a figment of someoneís imagination,
Why do I feel so good tonight?
Why do I feel so good tonight?
Why do I feel anything at all?

Wonít give in
Donít know what is happening to me
But I do not give up easily.
I can take it on the chin,
Wonít give in.

You can really rock and roll me
(Mike Batt)

Well there were cats in the alley and the juke box was playing my tune
And when I looked out the window there were hound dogs barking at the moon
Creep into my jungle well you know what I mean
Come and get me if you want me

Refrain:
Oooo my baby you can rockíníroll me
My baby you can really rockíníroll me
(repeat)

I was the sister of the sun like a fox on the run in the morning
You were a shadow in the night and you really didnít give me any warning
Evil creeping baby you can take it from me
I can really rockíníroll you

[Refrain]

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

[Refrain]
 
You would have been a rock n' roller
Refrain:
You would have been a rock'n'roller.
You would have been a rock'n'roller.
And I think I would've loved you baby,
If you had been a rock'n'roller.

Some people like Vivaldi with their lemonade,
But me I'm into everything from Beethoven to Slade,
If you were living with your long-haired wig,
You'd really pack the rainbow every time you did a gig.
Every time you did a gig.

[Refrain]

You were born too early to be one of my pals,
But I whistle all your symphonies in airport terminals.
You took a dive when you had no friends,
But you would have made a fortune baby after you were dead.
Baby after you were dead.

[3 x Refrain]
