Shine Lyrics
I can see it in your eyes
What I know in my heart is true
That our love it has faded
like the summer run through
So we'll walk down the shoreline
one last time together
Feel the wind blow our wanderin' hearts like a feather
But who knows what's waiting in the wings of time
Dry your eyes
We gotta go where we can shine

Don't be hiding in sorrow or clinging to the past
With your beauty so precious
and the season so fast
No matter how cold the horizon appear
or how far the first night
when I held you near
You gotta rise from these ashes
like a bird of flame
Step out of the shadow
we've gotta go where we can shine

For all that we struggle
for all we pretend
It don't come down to nothing
except love in the end
And ours is a road
that is strewn with goodbyes
And as it unfolds
as it all unwinds
Remember your soul is the one thing you can't compromise
Take my hand
we're gonna go where we can shine
we're gonna go where we can shine
we're gonna go where we can shine

And look and look
Through the windows of midnight
moonfoam and silver

Late Night Radio Lyrics
Oh Mary Jane
She step on a train
head for the city lights
yearning inside
to swim with the tide
and taste it, alright
bag on her shoulder
breathing the cold
there by the metal tracks
she saw it all shine
and swore in her mind
she'd never go back

And she don't mind the late night
late night radio
she don't mind the late night radio
she don't mind the late night
late night radio
na na

Couldn't have dreamed
the things that she seen
there on the avenue
she stared right into a million eyes
that looked her right through
telling Red Joe
the places she'd go
and wiping the table clean
she got no idea
the demon of fear
or what a broken heart mean

And she don't mind the late night
late night radio
she don't mind the late night radio
she don't mind the late night
late night radio
na na na na na not at all
na na na na na not at all
na na na na na not at all
na na

New York was dark
dirty and stark
burning with yellow wings
everyday come
with fever and hum
who knows what it brings
walking a wall
without a thought
to fall and hit the ground
sweet Mary Jane
with eyes like the rain
alive to the sound

And she don't mind the late night
late night radio
she don't mind the late night radio
she don't mind the late night
late night radio
and she don't mind the late night
late night radio
she don't mind the late night radio
she don't mind the late night
late night radio

Coming Down Lyrics
Tears falling slow
From the bridge
into the river below
in your eyes, i start to see
a starry veil,
the ocean of infinity

Moon and stars above me
Mingle with the blood
inside my vein
Empty arms
that should be
Holding you close
through nights of winter rain

I'm trying to spell
What only the wind can explain
It's colder than ever
Coming Down

I'm drowning in shallows
'Cos it's in so deep
There's neon melting in the rain
I Took too much powder to sleep
'Cos when i hold you naked
When i hear you laugh
I got a sword to stem the rivers
And cut the moon in half

Frozen stars above me
Mingle with the blood
inside my vein
Empty arms that should be
Holding you close
through nights of winter rain
I'm trying to spell
What only the wind can explain
It's colder than ever
Coming Down

We danced wild
Kicked off our shoes
Not a cloud
in the skies to confuse
But now the sky is cold
And the sea is wide
And there's nothing to be done
'cept reflecting the sun
And scratching the mountainside

Frozen stars above me
Mingle with the blood
inside my vein
Empty arms that should be
Holding you close
through nights of winter rain
I'm trying to spell
What only the wind can explain
It's colder than ever
Coming Down

Birds Without Wings Lyrics
Is there something you've forgotten
Did you do all you could do
I know you did but when it all came down
It all came down on you
Yes it all came down on you

Every night when you lay your head down
Your sleepy thoughts are full of rage
Is he running free within your book of dreams
Or does he only fill one page
Does he only fill one page

Chorus:
Where's the man that you used to know
When did he change from clear blue skies to snow
I've been searchin' to find him if I can
Where's the man

Is there a place in you for forgiveness
Or did he cut you to the bone
I watched him fill your life with madness
But did he turn your heart to stone
Did he turn your heart to stone

Chorus
I still can't believe that he's gone
Maybe he's taking the long way around
Trying to stand with both feet on the ground
It's been so long
It's been so long

Chorus
Where's the man, where's the man

The Light Lyrics
You turn out the light
And the dark sucks on
The embers of the fire
My heart smoulders in the night
And these tumbling boulders of desire

Come rollin' out of the shadows at me
Come rollin' out of the shadows at me
Come rollin' out of the shadows at me

Now you say I thought time was
Meant to take away the hurting
As your lonely silhouette
Closes the curtain
We're back on the road destination uncertain
So lets get in this car and drive
And this feeling it feels so strong
So powerful it can't be wrong
Now the whole frosted night is just a song

A song for you
A song for you
A song for you

Now the moon has splashed right all over the street
Like my tears on your thighs so pale
There's just you and me and the streets
And the whole wide world is just a jail

When you're away from me
You're away from me
You're away from me

You turn out the light
And the dark sucks on the embers in the fire
My heart smoulders in the night
And these tumbling boulders of desire

Come rollin'
Come rollin'
Come rollin'
Come rollin'
Come rollin' out of the shadows at me
Come rollin' out of the shadows at me

You turn out the light

Everytime Lyrics
Well I don't show off, don't criticize
I'm just livin' by my own feelings
And I won't give in, won't compromise
'Cause I just only have a steadfast heart of gold

I don't know why, I can't leave though it might be tough
But I ain't out of control, just livin' by my word
Don't ask me why, I don't need a reason
I've got my way, my own way

It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
Long as the voice inside drives me to run and fight
It doesn't matter who is wrong or who is right

Well I don't look back, I don't need to
Time won't wait and I got so much to do

Where do I stop, now it's all a blur and so unclear
Well I don't know but I can't be wrong

It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
Long as the voice inside drives me to run and fight
Place all your bets on what you think is right

Guitar Solo

It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
Long as the voice inside drives me to run and fight
It doesn't matter who is wrong or who is right

A Century Ends Lyrics
Cast your eyes into the distance
Try to focus on it all
Find a spirit of resistance
Instead of pride before the fall
Forge some opposition
From disparate strands
It ain't the prettiest position
As a century ends

Unstable situation
Faces made of wax
Streams of melting glass
Sheets of butchered facts
The roar of the machine
Hooded hearts and jewelled hands
And anger spilling out like gasoline
As a century ends

Everything I seen, everything that I heard,
Ain't even the tip of the iceberg
Fire down memory lane
So pass me my rose tinted glasses again

Through a fog of contradiction
Out to the lake of tears
See society admiring its own reflection
Chase a light that shines and disappears
Careful what you say 'cos reality offends
Just sit back and let your soul decay
As a century ends

And its easy to get weary
As you fight to get it done
'gainst a popular theory
That it's over 'fore it's even begun
Strain the limit of compassion
Tend a wound that never mends
And honesty still out of fashion
As a century ends

Lullaby Lyrics
Its a sad old world thats turning
Tonight as I slide through the streams
Moonlight and memory burning
And in my hand your broken dreams

My watery eyes
I sing for you this lullaby
Let the shadow fall from your window
Let the morning light fill your head
Stand up and let the wild wind blow
Right into your soul
Till the night is dead.

All these useless emotions churning round
As I search these bare walls for a clue
And all the time the truth is flashing in my mind
That when a heart gets broken, ain't nothing you can do

My watery eyes
I sing for you this lullaby
Let the shadow fall from your window
Let the morning light fill your head
Stand up and let the wild wind blow
Right into your soul
Till the night is dead.

And I'm packing my belongings
I'll be gone before the noon arrives
Cos I know theres no use pretending
Hey but soon it'll all be alright

Let the shadow fall from your window
Let the morning light fill your head
Stand up and let the wild wind blow
Right into your soul
Till the night is dead.
See the dawn break gold and the night is dead

Hear The Bells!

Faster, Sooner, Now Lyrics
Oh, it's a windy and sunny day
And I can hear the faint sound of distant waves
The past weeks have been going by so fast
It's all the same, the bright sky and shining sun
I have a feeling it's gonna be a fun day

Oh, it's a windy and sunny day
The many summers and many great games
Guess it's another trouble-free day
Our playground's so huge, we don't know where it ends
Feels energetic and groovy
Everything's cool, it's excellent

Everyday's a new beginning, yeah! - We don't know who we're gonna meet today
The more I want, the less that I can get - Keep walking for a new tomorrow
But I guess that I'm so happy now gonna set my heart free
Now I've got nothing to worry me, Come on!
Let's just get up go, go, go, go!

Hey big guy, hey little guy
Can you tell me who came first
Sorry, but I don't know
We are simply natural
Okay, all you have to do is sit up, look left, right, up, and down

Hey big guy, hey little guy
Can you tell me what's inside
Sorry, but I don’t know
We are simply natural
We present you with a gift – Welcome to our paradise

Piano Solo

Guitar Solo

What’d you think about the incident? – You always take me for granted
I am asking you as a first step – You answer first cause I asked you first
You and I are friends for all of time, tell me how you feel
But you know I can’t resist that smile on your face
Happy happy, Muy Amable!

Hey big guy, hey little guy
Can you tell me who came first
Sorry, but I don't know
We are simply natural
Okay, all you have to do is sit up, look left, right, up, and down

Hey big guy, hey little guy
Can you tell me what's inside
Sorry, but I don’t know
We are simply natural
We present you with a gift – Welcome to our special paradise
Where it all comes down to just one little thing, love

Wisdom Lyrics

Time no good
Wisdom no good
Patience no good
To me anymore

Now night has fallen on the stair
Some things you do you can never repair
Seems I'm always pretending
Things aren't there when they are

And the leaves are nearly off the trees
And the traffic's thick past yellow windows
And I'm lost inside the frozen headlights
Thinking of you
Time no good
Wisdom no good
Patience no good
To me anymore
And the trees are looking like bones
And the afternoon's filled with storm and rain
I'm staring out of this metal train
Thinking of you

And the trees are looking like bones
And the afternoon's filled with storm and rain
And I’m tangled up in memory's thorns
No way through
Time no good
Wisdom no good
Patience no good
To me anymore

Trees like bones, yellow windows
Memories, thorns, oh and you

Time no good
Wisdom no good
Patience no good
To me anymore

Falling Free Lyrics
All of my senses overthrown
By the might of your skin
And the lamplight
On your cheek bone
Drawing me further in
No sentence I can speak
For the wonder so unique
Breaking like a wave
upon the shore
Mercy me, I'm falling free
Since you opened the door

See how the sky is
Made of sapphire
The colours flowing
Through our hands
The moon is fire in your hair
A million miles beyond
What science understands
Smell that mountain heather
I don't remember ever
Feeling like this before
Mercy me, I'm falling free
Since you opened the door.

If every windowpane
Should shatter
If every wall should fall apart
Well it might hurt a bit,
But would it matter?
With this jewel in my heart.

No need to nail it to the ground
No need to smother it with sense
Just listen to the rhythm of
Your heart that pounds
And trust it all to chance
Cos we're standing face to face
With the angel of grace
Don't it just taste so pure?
Mercy me, I'm falling free
Since you opened the door.

Sell, Sell, Sell Lyrics
I beg to differ
To break the chain
To draw a line right through tomorrow
And cancel every claim
I've seen reflections
Beneath my skin
And drums beating for battle
In the eyes of children

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no color
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above and sell, sell, sell

Oh violent flowers
You fill the screen
Betray your mother
And change your name
So tall and fickle
And blind as snow
Running headfirst for oblivion
Cause you got nowhere else to go

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no color
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above and sell, sell, sell

In chill of winter
In dead of night
Each so familiar with the hunger
That they got no appetite
They talk of loving
I hear her say
That as fast as I can give it
He's taking it away

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no color
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above and sell, sell, sell

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no color
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above and sell, sell, sell

A weeping willow
The desert wind
So many learn to swallow
So few to understand
This deepest longing
This cup of faith
Where to put them in a world
Where no innocence is safe

Debauchery Lyrics
Drunken ferry boat woman
Swayin' on your sea
If I turn on the gasfire
By the rain rattled window
Won't you sail over to me

The hail storm tumbles
The rail line rumbles
You move in the porch with me
On an overcast day
The pale winter city
An afternoon's debauchery

Your blouse your skirt
I'll undo them so gentle
With beautiful care
I'm a lonely man
With five bottles of wine
I'd like you to share

And the hail storm tumbles
The rail line rumbles
You move through the doors with me
On an overcast day
The pale winter city
An afternoon's debauchery

Orange street light
Afternoon becomes night
You drink your wine from a mug
There's cats at the backdoor
The snow is two inches
You roll down your tights on the rug

The hail storm tumbles
The rail line rumbles
You lie on the floor with me
Come closer my love
I'm badly in need
Of an afternoon's debauchery

Flesh Lyrics
As the bell must strike the hour
As the west must stab the sun
So our hearts
Must heed the flow
Of deeper tides that run
Far beyond the bare indifference
That prosperity esteems
Where the spirit
Raves and dances
Through our very veins

At winters edge you found me
By the fields of wild gold
My hands still filled with ashes
From fires long cold
You pulled me from the wreckage
of bitterness and blame
Flung open the page
And put some flesh on
The bones of my dreams

On the streets
The blossom snowing
And the drum is beating slow
And I hear you speak so clear
Well I’m slicing through the fear
Setting all the beacons
Blazing, baby oh!
It's staring out plainer than ever
Brighter than all the fools
Gold that gleams
It's simply now or never
Putting flesh on the bones
Of my dreams

Putting flesh on the bones
Of my dreams
Putting flesh on the bones
Of my dreams

And they can plunder
The cave of sorrows
They can strip the gallery bare
Try to build a fence
Around the visions
In our heads, choke every spark
In a cloak of despair
But we got something
They can't stifle
With their price tags
And picture frames
Got a flower for every rifle
Putting flesh on the bones of my dreams

Hold On To Nothing Lyrics
Hold on to nothing,
Hold on to coldest steel,
Chill you down inside
and you see just what is real.

Paste it up and tear it down
moving along the rushing road...
17 fahrenheit, feel the winter grow.

(chorus) x 3
There's nowhere to write it...
There's nowhere to write it...
There's nowhere to write it...
There's nowhere to write it down.
(last time)There's nowhere to write it down, write it down.

Step down the alley
walking against the stony crowd
You're trying no to listen (oh)
But they shout so loud.

Chew you up and spit you out
Crush you between its finger and its thumb
This world and all its anger,
whoa, there's always more to come.

(chorus) x 3
There's nowhere to write it...
There's nowhere to write it...
There's nowhere to write it...
There's nowhere to write it down.
(last time)There's nowhere to write it down, write it down.
