Drunk On Love Lyrics
i was dreaming when i jumped the lights
busy scaling dizzy heights
hummed a somewhat strangely familiar tune
my eyes as wide as open books
and from my ears upon two hooks
a big smile was hanging there like a crescent moon

it sometimes comes as quite a shock
when the gods of love decide to knock
you're in a state of disarray
just when you least expect it--you'll never know a better day

day dreaming fever taking over
no misdemeanour--stone cold sober

the officer who stopped me said: "lucky you didn't wind up dead!"
and he guessed that I was over and above
i hoped he'd only caution me, and i made a plea for clemency
on the grounds that i was only drunk on love

day dreaming fever taking over
no misdemeanour--stone cold sober

it sometimes comes as quite a shock
when the gods of love decide to knock
you're in a state of disarray
just when you least expect it--you'll never know a better day

Third Time Lucky Lyrics
first one--it's a shock
a second helping--not good enough
third time lucky--and you've arrived!
if you have any doubts then try once more...

maybe i was too impressed...
he flattered--i was blushing
he found my _joie de vivre_ so cute and rather touching
himself so upwardly mobile, so cerebral, clever
could i ever live up to his dreams
or would i like to play a part in his scheme?
i don't think so...

i have my plans and brave ambition
knowing no bounds, no inhibitions
'nd i'm aware there's a lesson in every fall
so next time i'll get closer

first one--it's a shock
a second helping--not good enough
third time lucky--and you've arrived!
if you have any doubts then try one more time

later i met a boy whose inner life was his true passion
we did connect in an exploratory fashion
he claimed what tie us to this mortal coil we should sever
could i ever live up to his dreams
or would i like to play a part in his scheme?
oh i fear not...

i have my plans and brave ambition
knowing no bounds, no inhibitions
'nd i'm aware there's a lesson in every fall
so next time i might get it right

Yearning Lyrics
"tender feelings heal with flowers
when your woes and sorrows leave you
overwhelmed
for the state of endless sadness or
uncompleted mourning--
take star of bethlehem,
there's willow if bitter, when helpless--
wild rose,
some sunshine wattle revives all lost hopes"
but for a simple case of longing--
what are we to do when homeless in our
hearts and souls

some of us take daring chances following our
lovers--
the passion we can trust...
others just cannot sit still--
they're driven by the power of mighty
wanderlust
wherever we go, god, we're trying so hard
to make every place feel like home left behind
but despite of all endeavours--nothing
changed,
as ever--we're homeless in our hearts...

but i'm yearning no more
'cause i found my home in you
and now it's where i belong
i gave up the world to be with you

come to me, i'll soothe your yearning...

is this what you've always dreamed of
the aim of our desire is hard to recognize
it often stares you in the face and yet, against
all reason,
takes the longest time to find
you circle the globe, go native, go far...
but it's not a country or a town, not a house...
what's the use of distant travel if only to
discover--you're homeless in your heart

but i'm yearning no more
'cause i found my home in you
and now it's where i belong
i gave up the world to be with you

so come to me, let me soothe your yearning...

An Olive Tree Lyrics
one day, while in the south of france,
my good friend said I should hug an olive tree,
she claimed that dreams come true when you do, but
can a plant be in any way that beneficial to me?

though i'm a famous sceptic, feet on the ground,
this time i wanted this to be true...
now picture this:
a silly polish girl in nice
embracing trees
wishing for you

hug an olive tree!
i take it--things are looking good
still--could be better,
there's always something to improve
and so you should
hug an olive tree
i take it--things are looking good
still--could be better,
there's always something to improve
oh yes we should

so when you're in the south of france
and you've got dreams,
look for some magic gardens with olive trees

though i'm a famous sceptic, feet on the ground,
this time i wanted this to be true...
some olive branch must have heard my desperate heart
'cause i wear the crown (the olive crown,
i wear the olive crown...)
and so do you...

The Sweetest Illusion Lyrics
bread and butter tastes more like it could be _cordon bleu_
mona lisa's smiling like a cheshire cat
even johnny rocker sounds today like nat king cole
every yellow taxi's like a cadillac

and the cup that once appeared half empty
has become a cup that is half full
where there was a space there is now plenty
you're a lucky sign ascending--
no one does for me what you do

love is the sweetest illusion

every innuendo seems to be in semaphore
monday mornings turn into a mardi gras
and a glass of soda taste more like dom perignon
every dead end street's an ocean boulevard

the more i look the more i see
and i don't mind if my senses are deceiving me
the more i touch the more i feel
who cares what is imaginary and what is real
if black is white and red is green
i don't care which way around it is supposed to be
i close my eyes but i can see...

the more i look the more i see
form where i stand my world is looking
good to me
the more i touch the more i feel
don't want to know that is true what's
make believe...

Perfect Mother Lyrics
she's gonna be a perfect mother,
perfect mother
in her mind there's no doubt
though no one could show her how to be
a perfect mother, perfect mother
people say--she's too young
should a child have a child?

hers is gonna be a perfect baby
raised according to the old prescription:
cuddle it daily and smother with kisses
'cause there's nothing more important
just make sure that she never misses

a perfect mother, perfect mother
people say--she's too young
no one could ever show her how

babies grow, then they tend to leave us
that's how it's always been and always will be
deep down inside you never stop wishing
for the hope to be certain that your
boy or girl
will be forever needing you

hers is gonna be a perfect baby
raised according to the old prescription:
cuddle it daily and smother with kisses
'cause there's nothing more important...
who knows better--
all her life she missed her

More Fire Than Flame Lyrics
you're the one that i ran to
you had no rival
you were my bible--more fire than flame
all the loving you gave me
that one-off feeling
left while we were sleeping
then down came rain

we're praying come back love
come back, all's forgiven
come back love
we still burn more fire than flame

you're the stop that i came to
the good time station
with no regulation and no masquerade
all you have aroused in me is my suspicion
by your own admission--your eyes have strayed

you have been good for me
i never said it
you deserve more credit
i still need you

so won't you come back love
come back, all's forgiven
come back love
we keep burning more fire than flame

Simple Pleasures Lyrics
you don't have to be so strong
don't move mountains for me
don't slay a dragon
every time you run back here
you are more than a knight in shining armour
who would need a prince...
anyway i don't believe in fairy tales
let's leave them for the dreamers
there is something much more real i'm after--

simple pleasures--bliss i finally found
in ordinary home-made treasures
on familiar ground
when i'm with you--the time's so precious
hours flying past
we've got to take some long-term measures
so simple joy is here to last

don't go yet...
i'll be missing your smile,
your gentle voice, so soothing...
very night and day i will long for the warmth
of your embrace
so who would need a prince
anyway i don't believe in fairy tales
let's leave them for the dreamers
there is something much more real i'm after--

simple pleasures...

My Cruel Ways Lyrics
i closed my eyes--a blind and cold-hearted fool,
last night i lost my mind and came so close to losing you
so close to losing you
misread your smile, misunderstood your tears,
ignored the pleading voice and every sigh
even your words of love i would not listen

it's a lesson i'll never forget
no communication gave rise to fear
tell me--who's to blame

what i really meant to tell you--i panicked,
'cause i would die if something happened to you
i'd die if something would...

but i'm so spoilt by your patience and devotion
that only now i recognize some of my cruel ways
some of my cruel ways
maybe it's good, maybe it was meant to be
there was no other way you could get through
now it's my turn to get through to you baby...

it's a lesson i'll never forget
no communication gave rise to fear
tell me--who's to blame
what i really meant to tell you--i need you
and i would die if something happened to you
i'd die if something would...
what i really meant to tell you--i love you
and i would die if something happened to you
i'd die if something would...

what i tried to tell you baby, what i tried to tell you darling
could not live without you honey, would not live without you, no...
if only you were with me baby, if only you were with me darling
'cause i've been waiting for you honey, i've been waiting for you...

i closed my eyes--a blind and cold-hearted fool,
last night i lost my mind and came so close to losing you,
so close to losing you...
so close to losing you...

The Prayer Of A Happy Housewife Lyrics
when i look around it makes me wonder
am i worthy of the most amazing life that i've
been given
did not care before but i'm older
i see things in a different light
my grateful thoughts i raise to heaven

thank you for letting me dream and hope
thank you for this man who's always been true
and i do know that i'm lucky to be this strong

'cause some of us our weak
if they only knew
oh if they knew...

when i walk the streets it makes me wonder
am i deserving of the most amazing home
that i've been given
all the cardboard boxes are much colder
and when i watch our children grow
my grateful thoughts i raise to heaven

guide me and help me to carry on
i don't have to ask 'cause you've always seen
me through
i am eternally thankful for what i have
and if anything goes wrong
then i still have you
i still have you
