Getaway

Just stop you know you can't deny 
Just stop you know there's no reply 
I've heard it all don't say that 
Just stop and tell me it's goodbye 

Don't you understand 
What I'm saying 
We never gave ourselves the chance 

You know I gotta getaway 
Run leave you behind 
Oh I'll go slowly 
So sad to leave this time 
The ring you were holding 
Has hit the floor 
And I can't live in this house 
With you no more 

This time I know youll hesitate 
Deep down you hope it's not too late 
You've said it all except goodbye 
I think it's time that you should try 

Don't you understand 
What I'm saying 
We never gave ourselves the chance 

You know I gotta getaway 
Run leave you behind 
Oh I'll go slowly 
So sad to leave this time 
The ring you were holding 
Has hit the floor 
And I can't live in this house 
With you no more 

Because I know 
I still loved you 
And I can't stay another day 

Getaway 
You know I gotta getaway 
Getaway 
You know I gotta getaway 

You know I gotta getaway 
Run leave you behind 
Oh I'll go slowly 
So sad to leave this time 
The ring you were holding 
Has hit the floor 
And I can't live in this house 
With you no more

Can't Resist

You know I cant resist
You know I cant resist

I believe that you told me
A promise lives with lie
That you tease as you hold me
Theres hunger in your eyes

Thats the way that I remember you
When the sun was high
And the nights were cool
It seems that lately I just dream
Of days in the silver sky
That I cant (get?)

You know I cant resist
I never wanna fall asleep
I know you wanna dive in deeper
And I tried and I tried I tried to walk away
Im standing one on this 
Emotion always takes us deep
I only wanna dive in deeper
And I tried and I tried and I tried to walk away

Thats the way I remember
The summer sun was high
To the cold of November
Im still in silver sky

Thats the way that I remember you
When the sun was high
And the nights were cool
It seems that lately I just dream
Of days in the silver sky
That I cant (get?)

You know I cant resist
I never wanna fall asleep
I know you wanna dive in deeper
And I tried and I tried I tried to walk away
Im standing one on this 
Emotion always takes us deep
I only wanna dive in deeper
And I tried and I tried and I tried to walk away

Im falling for your sentimental charms again
Im finding it so hard to break it
But everytime the pleasure turns into pain
Im more inclined to stand to take it

This is the way I remember you
The sun was high
And the night was oh so cool
Its how I remember you

You know I cant resist
I never wanna fall asleep
I know you wanna dive in deeper
And I tried and I tried I tried to walk away
Im standing one on this 
Emotion always takes us deep
I only wanna dive in deeper
And I tried and I tried and I tried to walk away

You know I cant resist
You know I cant resist
You know I cant resist

What About Us

He came home late from his work one day
Said he wanted some time alone
What about you, what about me, what about love
I knew I couldnt take this love heartache
I knew I couldnt stand it alone
What about you, what about me, what about us

Aaah I know Im special inside
And how I gave you all of my life
And here we go

Ive seen it before when I just
When I just needed more
Than your touch
Here we go
Youre not a million miles
Youre not a million miles from me

He came home late from his work one day
Said he wanted some time alone
What about you, what about me, what about love
He came home late and apparantly
He was someone else when he got home
What about you, what about me, what about us

Aaah I know Im special inside
And how I gave you all of my life
And here we go

Ive seen it before when I just
When I just needed more
Than your touch
Here we go
Youre not a million miles
Youre not a million miles from me

And here we go

Ive seen it before when I just
When I just needed more
Than your touch
Here we go
Youre not a million miles
Youre not a million miles from me

Cry

You thought it was easy
To find what you need
If you'd only believe me
You'd find you'd be free

You're always trying to hide
Your secrets and lies
You gotta let me know
Is it goodbye or no?

You said you'd write your name in the skies so do it
You knew you'd never make it that high you blew it all
You had to have it all
Oh instead you wrote your name in the sand you knew it

You could've had the world in your hands you blew it all
You had to have it all

Its not the way you look
Its not the way you smile
Its not the way you stood there even in denial
Its not what you've become
I'm not so sure you'd agree

You're always trying to hide
Your secrets and lies
You gotta let me know
Is it goodbye or no?

You said you'd write your name in the skies so do it
You knew you'd never make it that high you blew it all
You had to have it all
Oh instead you wrote your name in the sand you knew it
You could've had the world in your hands you blew it all
You had to have it all

Save your love
Come on and save your love
Yeh you know that we''ll be fine if we just take our time
And save our love

You said you'd write your name in the skies so do it
You knew you'd never make it that high you blew it all
You had to have it all
Oh instead you wrote your name in the sand you knew it
You could've had the world in your hands you blew it all
You had to have it all
You blew it all
You had to have it all

Sleep

I think that youre the one
When everytime you call me lady
I dont know what it is
That makes me feel like this just lately yeah

Those heavenly calls
You knew I was on my own
Those heavenly calls
We stepped into the unknown

Let me sleep
So I can dream of you
Let me sleep
So I can be with you

Whats a girl to do when shes alone
With you just tell me
And here we are again yeah acting
Like were friends dont held me

Bridge (both)

Those heavenly calls
You knew I was on my own
Those heavenly calls
We stepped into the unknown

Let me sleep
So I can dream of you
Let me sleep
So I can be with you

Hold me close, let me be with you

At least tonight, well be misunderstood

Let me sleep
So I can dream of you
Let me sleep
So I can be with you

Let me sleep
Oh let me sleep
Let me sleep so I can dream of you
Let me sleep so I can be with you
Let me sleep so I can dream of you
Let me sleep so I can be with you
Let me sleep
Let me sleep so I can be with you

Get Down Tonight

Take me down
Pull up beside me, and lay me on the ground
We could lie, come slip inside me
We'll watch her pass us by

No need to take it slow
Now you've been down below
Whats going on I wonder?

I know you made your day
I know you want to play
Cause I can taste your hunger

Yeah getting down tonight
Lets take it farther 
Lets move on outside
Yeah getting down tonight
I want no other
You know this feels so right

Upside down
We're breathing deeply
Oh god I love that sound
Don't be shy
Lets move together until we're satisfied

No need to take it slow
Now you've been down below
Whats going on I wonder?

I know you made your day
I know you want to play
Cause I can taste your hunger

Yeah getting down tonight
Lets take it farther 
Lets move on outside
Yeah getting down tonight
I want no other
You know this feels so right

Oh don't say that you love me
Don't say that you care
Don't go dreaming of me
Its only an affair
Don't say that you love me (I know I really must confess)
Don't say that you care (it seems the same it seems the same its all the same to me)
Don't go dreaming of me (I know I really must confess)
Its only an affair (I love your game I love your game I love your game and oooh)

I want no other you know this feels so right

Yeah getting down tonight
Lets take it farther 
Lets move on outside
Yeah getting down tonight
I want no other
You know this feels so right

Nevermind

No...
Nevermind...
Cos you're home now
Yeah you're home

Time...
Never hides
We're alone now
Leave it all behind

Wherever I go I know I'll tell you
It's just another place we can go to
So get on board

You gave it all
Don't take it back
Been up all night just talking
The day is dawning
It's early morning

So...
Catch your breath
It's so clear now
Cos you're here now

Wherever I go I know I'll tell you
It's just another place we can go to
So get on board

You gave it all
Don't take it back
Been up all night just talking
The day is dawning
It's early morning

No...
Nevermind...
Cos you're home now
The day is dawning
It's early morning

Bad Weather

Lovers come and lovers go 
Nothing lingers on
Its more fun to take it slow
Then it goes on and on

I need to explain
You can't stand me I've always done it for myself
I do it again
You can't explore me you've been so good for my health

I know we can walk through rain
But I don't want to end up drowned again
Too much dancing in bad weather
Makes it hard to stay together

Tell me where you want to be
Losing who we are
That little place that we both need
It sometimes seems so far

I need to explain
You can't stand me I've always done it for myself
I do it again
You can't explore me you've been so good for my health

I know we can walk through rain
But I don't want to end up drowned again
Too much dancing in bad weather
Makes it hard to stay together

Wait a minute baby
I'll be here for a while
Just wait a minute baby
You know I love your style

I know we can walk through rain
But I don't want to end up drowned again
Too much dancing in bad weather
Makes it hard to stay together

Masterthief

If you want to see my sunrise
Well I don't mind
Your lips so full like life itself
Been in love for a while

You know that I just want to see you
Yeah I have for a time
And its balancing there upon my head
Just like last night on a bottle of wine

Hey you
Do you feel alright?
Hey you 
Come on, come on, come on, come on back to me

You want to spend the night together
Pull your body close
So masterthief embrace my heart
Now you decided to show

Come discover what you can't find
There's no need to think
And it hits you there on the back of you head just like
Last night when you started to drink

Hey you
Do you feel alright?
Hey you 
Come on, come on, come on, come on back to me

Time is all I have to give
You can have it if you choose
Time is all I have to give
You got me under your wing

Hey you
Do you feel alright?
Hey you 
Come on, come on, come on, come on back to me

Time is all I have to give
You can have it if you choose
Time is all I have to give
You got me under your wing

Just Hold On

Funny how I'm on myself with you
Than I ever knew
If I see that its eleven I'll say its seven
to spend more time with you

So here you know what I'm saying
To you this evening
Think it through
You thought I was your best friend
There to your defence
I reach for someone new

Hold on, hold on, hold on to what we have
Yesterday is gone and the night is long
We'll hold on to what we have

Even though I've been with someone else
I'm so happy when I'm with you
And here we are again on some lost weekend
Yeh we are one or two

So here you know what I'm saying
To you this evening
Think it through
You thought I was your best friend
There to your defence
I know that I had you

Hold on, hold on, hold on to what we have
Yesterday is gone and the night is long
We'll hold on to what we have

Nothing leaves your mind but breaks your heart
But we both knew this from the start
I could mend your life, or ease your pain

Hold on, hold on, hold on to what we have
Yesterday is gone and the night is long
We'll hold on to what we have
Hold on, hold on, hold on to what we have
Yesterday is gone and the night is long
We'll hold on to what we have
Hold on to what we have
Hold on, hold on

Red Book

Days they surround you through the day
Words imprison you they say
Maybe there is something you can do
Look around there's no resisting truth

Just breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Yeh breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Just leave it now
And let your mind roam free

Help me get you through the night
Hush and listen to the quiet
Tell me if there's something I can do
Trust in me don't be misunderstood

Just breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Yeh breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Just leave it now
And let your mind roam free

Just breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Yeh breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Just leave it now
And let your mind roam free
Just breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Yeh breathe it out
And find out what you're looking for
Just leave it now
And let your mind roam free

Yeh breathe it out
And lay your mind at ease
