Joyride

Hello, you fool,
I love you,
C'mon, join the joyride,
Join the joyride.

I hit the road out of nowhere,
I had to jump in my car
And be a rider in a love game
Following the stars,
Don't need no book of wisdom,
I get no money talk at all.

She has a train going downtown,
She's got a club on the moon
And she's telling all her secrets
In a wonderful balloon.
Oh, she's the heart of the fun-fair,
She's got me whistling her private tune.

And it all begins where it ends,
And she's all mine, my magic friend.
She says
Hello, you fool,
I love you,
C'mon, join the joyride,
Join the joyride.

She's a flower, I can paint her,
She's a child of the sun,
We're a part of this together,
Could never turn around and run.
Don't need no fortune teller
To know where my lucky love belongs, oh no.

'Cause it all begins again when it ends,
And we're all magic friends.
She says
Hello, you fool,
I love you,
C'mon, join the joyride,
Join the joyride,
Be a joyrider.

I take you on a skyride,
A feeling like you're spellbound.
The sunshine is a lady
Who rocks you like a baby.

Hotblooded

You know, I'm hotblooded, baby...

Get on up and kick it
All the systems are ready to go.
Well, are you ready or not?
Hey, I gotta know!
Baby, lay down the blues
And let those guitars bleed.
I'm everything you wanted,
I'm all you ever need.

'Cause I'm hotblooded, hotblooded,
I need your lovin',
I need your love so bad.

Flash all the lights,
I'll be a camera tonight.
I'll snap the look on your face
When I'm squeezing you tight.
Yea, sisters o' soul,
We gotta burn this old house down.
Keep on beatin' those drums,
Keep on pumpin' up that sound, yea yea yea yea yea.

I'm hotblooded, hotblooded,
I need your lovin',
I need your love so bad.

I'm hotblooded, hotblooded,
You gotta know it,
I need a shot of love so bad.

I stay up late
Where the night's alive.
No sleep at all
I work nine to five.
It's honey do that
And honey do this:

"Can I call you home?"

"Can I call you home?"

"Can I call?" - you can call me miss...

Fading Like a Flower (Every Time You Leave)

In a time where the sun descends alone,
I ran a long, long way from home
To find a heart that's made of stone.
I will try, I just need a little time
To get your face right out of my mind,
To see the world through different eyes.

Every time I see you
Oh, I try to hide away
But when we meet
It seems I can't let go.
Every time you leave the room
I feel I'm fading like a flower.

Tell me why?
When I scream there's no reply,
When I reach out there's nothing to find,
When I sleep I break down and cry.

Every time I see you
Oh, I try to hide away
But when we meet
It seems I can't let go.
Every time you leave the room
I feel I'm fading like a flower.

Fading like a rose,
Fading like a rose,
Beaten by the storm,
Talking to myself,
Getting washed by the rain,
It's such a cold, cold town.

Knockin' on Every Door

Hey, now honey,
You got to face the floor,
You headed for the heart
But you couldn't find the door,
Could you? Could you?
Well, I'm standing in the sun
But I'm living in the rain,
I got to get a whirlin'
Like a human hurricane
Over you, over you.
Now you're looking like a fox on the run.
And you're faster than a shot from a gun.
I'm pointing at you, oh you.
Talking 'bout you, hey you.

I thought we had love in store -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Babe, I've seen it all before -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Ain't no lovin' you ignore -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Keep, keep knock knockin' on every door -
You keep on knockin' on every door.

Hey, now honey,
Time is all you've spent.
You moved into the bed
But you couldn't pay the rent.
Could you?
In the twinkle of an eye you electrify.
I got to get a shootin'
Like a rocket in the sky,
Bye bye, goodbye.
Now you're burning like you're hot on the scene.
Don't you love to steal a part of my dream?
I'm looking at you, oh you.
Talking 'bout you, yea you.

I thought we had love in store -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Babe, I've seen it all before -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Ain't no sugar you ignore -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Keep, keep knock knockin' on every door -
You keep on knockin' on every door.

I thought we used to have love in store -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Hey babe, don't run around here no more -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Ain't no sugar you ignore -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Keep, keep knock knockin' on every door -
You keep on knockin' on every door.

You'd better learn your lesson now...

Spending My Time

What's the time?
Seems it's already morning.
I see the sky,
It's so beautiful and blue.
The TV's on
But the only thing showing
Is a picture of you.

Oh, I get up
And make myself some coffee.
I try to read a bit
But the story's too thin.
I thank the Lord above
That you're not here to see me
In this shape I'm in.

Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you
Think of me too.
I'm spending my time.

I try to call
But I don't know what to tell you.
I leave a kiss
On your answering machine.
Oh, help me please,
Is there someone who can make me
Wake up from this dream?

Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you
Are missing me too.
I'm spending my time.

Watching the sun go down.
I fall asleep
To the sound of "tears of a clown",
A prayer gone blind.
I'm spending my time.

My friends keep telling me:
Hey, life will go on,
Time will make sure I'll get over you.
This silly game of love —
You play, you win only to lose.

Soul Deep

Save a prayer for a sinner and a saint,
My baby's coming back.
Say a prayer, hide, hide away
Yea, baby's coming back.

Hey hey hey, ain't gonna trouble his wandering mind,
Gonna take on the time to find out if my love is

Soul deep - spinning the heart round the wire.
Soul deep - heavenly wave.
Soul deep - heating the heart like the fire,
Soul deep is taking my breath away-ay-ay.

Save a tear till the curtain will fall,
Well, I'm saving them all for you.
Knock on wood, is it understood
That I'm saving it up for you.

Hey hey hey, love is a hustle just a moment behind,
Gonna walk on the line to find out if my love is

Soul deep...
Save a prayer for a sinner and a saint,
My baby's coming back.
Say a prayer, hide, hide away yea
Yea, baby's coming back.

Hey hey hey, ride on the soul train now I'm too close to hide,
Gonna take on the time to find out if my love is
Soul deep...

Watercolours in the Rain

Going through the motions.
Ending up nowhere at all.
Can't see the sun on my wall.
Going through emotions.
Ending up on a frozen morning
With a heart not even broken.

Seems I've been running all my life, all my life.
Seems I've been running all my life, all my life
Like watercolours in the rain.

Find a place to settle down.
Get a job in a city nearby
And watch the trains roll on by.
I'll find the falling star.
I'll fall in love with the eyes of a dreamer
And a dream worth believing.

Seems I've been running all my life, all my life.
Seems I've been running all my life, all my life
Like watercolours in the rain

The Big L.

She's the top, she's got the world on a string.
She makes me boogie, makes me do anything, yea yea. -
Hey now, touch the sky,
You've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
Well, she's a miracle, she's all that I need
Like the water and the air that I breathe, yea yea. -
Hey now, reach the sky,
There's a certain kind of look in your smile.
And I know what love can do.
Yes I know what hearts can do.

The big love is taking the wheel,
The big love goes head over heels,
The big lust, bring it into the small world,
The bigger, the better.
Big love, waiting to catch the big one,
Head over heels, the big one,
Bring it into the small world.

I'm building the big, big love,
I'm building the big, big love.

It's kinda strange, a bit mysterious,
I gotta take it, oh, so, so serious. -
Hey now, touch the sky,
You've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
It used to be so hard, so lonely at night,
Well, she's my baby and I'm feeling alright. -
Hey now, move the sky,
There's a certain kind of look in that smile.
When I'm making love with her.
When I'm making love to her, yea.

It has to be a big thing.
It's bringing me to my knees.
Has to be a big thing, big thing,
Ya know what I'm saying...

(Do You Get) Excited?

When the day gets dark over a thousand streets
And you feel your heart is a living beat.
When you're all alone and you close your eyes,
Naked to the bone the dream comes alive.

Do you get excited when I touch you in the night?
My, oh, my...
Do you get excited when I meet you every night?
You won't let the night pass you by.

When your body's hot, the window's open wide.
This moment's all you got in this race of life.
When you feel the fire is getting close to you,
Hey baby, you know I'm lonely too.

Do you get excited when I touch you in the night?
My, oh, my...
Do you get excited when I meet you every night?
You won't let the night pass you by.

I wanna know.

Church of Your Heart

Can't we leave the world outside
Just for a while? Just for a while?
And spend some time, you and I,
Under this bright glorious sky.
It's been so long since I first saw you,
But I still love that smile in your eyes.

Yes it's true, right from the start,
I believed in the church of your heart.
Yes it's you that made me be part of
And believe in the church of your heart.

Step inside, lay yourself down
Just for a while, rest for a while.
I can hear a thundering sound
Beating inside when you're around.
It's been so long since I first met you,
Since we made love, you know how time flies.

Yes it's true, right from the start,
I believed in the church of your heart.
Yes it's you that made me be part of
And believe in the church of your heart.

In the church of your heart.

Small Talk

It's not the chapters he reads
When you're feeling low down.
It's not the touch of his skin
When you kiss him goodnight.
It's not the money he spends
When you want to buy a daydream
And not that miracle smile
That makes the sky bright.
It's not the way his hands behave
When you've turned out the light.

It's the small, small, small talk
That makes it all happen.
Small, small, small talk
That makes you want to fly,
Yes it does.

It's not the way
He believes in you like a religion.
It's not the thrill that you get
When he's holding you tight.
It's not the way
His eyes persuade you to stay the night.

It's the small, small, small talk
That makes it all happen (just like that).
Small, small, small talk
That makes you feel like flying,
Yes it does.

Information, heart and soul,
A whisper, a word,
Confessions that have to be heard.

Small, small talk, small, small talk.
Come on now, come on now,
Come on - you make it rock so heavenly.
Come on now, come on now,
Come on - you seem to talk so heavenly.
Big words... small talk...

Physical Fascination

Hi! I got to go,
Get aboard attack
A love jet heaven and back.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.
And I got to find a power station with a beat,
I can't take no conversation.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.

Looking for the inspiration.
All succumb to the physical fascination,
All succumb to the physical fascination.

Hi! Shake, shake it up,
This love divine,
You're out of touch, babe,
I'm going out of my mind.
My-my-my-my-my-my-mind.
Talk to me!
Why don't you talk to me?
C'mon and use your body language
And have yourself a good time.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.

And radiate your sweet temptation.
All succumb to the physical fascination,
All surrender to the physical fascination.

Yea yea yea yea.

Things Will Never Be the Same

Lay it down,
Pull my heart to the ground.
Time's getting cold,
Now the leaves all turn hard and blue.
And I know when I gaze to the sun,
No place to hide
I got nowhere to run from you,
Away from you.

Hold me now, girl,
I don't know when,
When we will ever meet again.
That was then, baby,
This is now,
I try to get over you.

Losing you...
Things will never be the same.
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
Things would never be...

In your hand, babe,
I don't understand,
You've got the eyes of a child
But you hurt like a man always do,
Always do.

Touch me now, girl,
I don't know when,
When we will ever meet again.
That was then, baby,
This is now,
Time won't get over you.

Losing you...
Things will never be the same.
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
Things would never be the same.

Perfect Day

Breathe some faith into my chest.
Lay me down, I need the rest.
Ever since the sky turned grey
I've waited for the perfect day.

Hey now -
It seems you've always touched me like the sun.
There's no escape for the broken-hearted,
There's no return once you've lost your way.
I say a prayer now
Our love's departed
That you'll come back to stay
And bring the perfect day.

Blinded by a crazy light
I fell into the darkest night.
Those magic ties, the two of us,
I couldn't see it turn to dust.

Hey now -
It seems you've always reached me like the sun.
There's no escape for the broken-hearted,
There's no return once you've lost your way.
I say a prayer now
Your love's departed
That you'll come back to stay.
Bring back the perfect day.

I Remember You

Are you ready? Go!

I hear your footsteps like you're walking.
I hear your voice like you're talking to me.
And I can reach every moment, every caress
Like I'm living a dream.
Down to the bone, go little darling.

Oh, I remember you,
Feels like it was yesterday.
I remember you,
You've got me running back again.

You shared my secrets and my laughter.
I fell in love with the light in your eyes
And I believed that summer would go on and on
For the rest of my life.
Down to the bone, go little darling.

Hey, I remember you,
Feels like it was yesterday.
I remember you,
You've got me running back again.

You've got me running.
I say: na na na na na na na na na na.
