I wanted to be with you alone and talk about the weather
But traditions I can trace against the child in your face
Won't escape my attention
You keep your distance with a system of touch and gentle persuasion
I'm lost in admiration, could I need you this much
Oh, you're wasting my time, you're just, just, just wasting time

Something happens and I'm head over heels
I never find out till I'm head over heels
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah, don't take my heart, don't break my heart
Don't, don't, don't throw it away (Throw it away...Throw it away...)

I made a fire and watching it burn (yeah) Thought of your future
With one foot in the past now just how long will it last
No, no, no, have you no ambitions, oh (What's the matter with...)
My mother and my brothers used to breathing clean air
(Nothing ever changes when you're acting your age)
And dreaming I'm a doctor
(Nothing gets done when you feel like a baby)
It's hard to be man when there's a gun in your hand
(Nothing ever changes when you're acting your age) Oh, I feel so…

Something happens and I'm head over heels
I never find out till I'm head over heels
Something happens and I'm head over heels
Ah, don't take my heart, don't break my heart
Don't, don't, don't throw it away

And this is my four leaf clover
I'm on the line, one open mind, this is my four leaf clover

(La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la)
(La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la)
(La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la)
(La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la la)
(La la la la la, la la la la la) In my mind's eye (la la la la la la)
One little boy, one little man (La la la la la, la la la la la)
Funny how...TIME FLIES!!!
---------------------------------

Chewed the bone down too low
Got fed on tea and sympathy
Blew the sail like the wind
I wish you were my enemy
I was humble for you
What a fool I've been to have
Laid so low for so long

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down

Drew the blade way too slow
Was shackled by your honesty
Made a mess, I guess I have should have known
That life was lust and liberty
Not a chance mutation or the last temptation
Laid so low for so long, so low

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
---------------------------------

You walked into the room, I just had to laugh
The face you wore was cool, you were a photograph
When it's all too late, it's all too late
I did not have the time, I did not have the nerve
To ask you how you feel, is this what you deserve
When it's all too late, it's all too late

Change, you can change…Change, you can change…

And something on your mind became a point of view
I lost your honesty, you lost the life in you
When it's all too late, it's all too late
We walk and talk in time, I walk and talk in two
Where does the end of me become the start of you
When it's all too late, it's all too late

Change, you can change…Change, you can change…

What has happened to the friend that I once knew, has he gone away?
When it's all too late, it's all too late

Change…Change, you can change…Change, you can change…
Change, you can change…Change, you can change…
Change, you can change…Change, you can change…

How can I be sure when your intrusion's my illusion?
How can I be sure when all the time you change my mind?
I ask for more and more, how can I be sure?

When you don't give me love, you give me pale shelter
You don't give me love, you give me cold hands
And I can't operate on this failure
When all I wanna be is completely in command

How can I be sure for all you say you keep me waiting?
How can I be sure when all you do is see me through?
I ask for more and more, how can I be sure

When you don't give me love, you give me pale shelter
You don't give me love, you give me cold hands
And I can't operate on this failure
When all I wanna be is completely in command

I've been here before, there is not why, no need to try
I thought you had it all, I'm calling you, I'm calling you
I ask for more and more (ask for more and more)
How can I be sure (how can I be)

When you don't give me love, you give me pale shelter
You don't give me love, you give me cold hands
And I can't operate on this failure
When all I wanna be is completely in command
(Completely in command)

You don't give me love, you don't give me love
You don't give me love, you don't give me love
You don't give me love, you don't give me love
---------------------------------

High time we made a stand and shook up
The views of the common man
D.j.´s the man we love the most
Could you be, could you be squeaky clean
And smash any hope of democracy?
As the headline says you´re free to choose
There´s an egg on your face and mud on your shoes
One of these days they´re gonna call it the blues

And anything is possible when you´re
Sowing the seeds of love
Anything is possible
Sowing the seeds of love

I spy tears in their eyes
They look to the skies for some kind
Of divine intervention
Food goes to waste!
So nice to eat, so nice to taste
Politician grannie with your high ideals
Have you no idea how the majority feels?
So without love and a promised land
We´re fools to the rules of a government plan
Kick out the style: bring back the jam

Anything is possible when...

Sowing the seeds
The birds and the bees
My girlfriend and me in love
Feel the pain
Talk about it
If you´re a worried man
Then shout about it
Open hearts
Feel about it
Open minds
Think about it
Everyone
Read about it
Everyone
Scream about it!
Everyone
Everyone
Everyone
Read about it
Read about it
Read it in the books in the crannies
And the nooks there are books to read
---------------------------------

You better love loving and you better behave
You better love loving and you better behave
Woman in chains, woman in chains

Calls her man the great white hope
Says she's fine, she'll always cope, ooh
Woman in chains, woman in chains

Well, I feel lying and waiting is a poor man's deal (A poor man's deal)
And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel
(Your eyes of steel)
Well, It's a world gone crazy keeps woman in chains, woh woh woh
Woman in chains, woman in chains

Trades her soul as skin and bones
(You better love loving and you better behave)
Sells the only thing she owns
(You better love loving and you better behave) ooh ooh
Woman in chains (the sun and the moon), woman in chains

Men of stone, men of stone, hey baby, no no no, ooh

Well, I feel deep in your heart there are wounds time can't heal
(The time can't heal)
And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe
Well, you know what I mean
It's a world gone crazy keeps woman in chains

It's under my skin but out of my hands
I'll tear it apart (somebody somewhere is trying)
But I won't understand (to breathe)
I will not accept the greatness of man
It's a world gone crazy keeps woman in chains
Gone crazy keeps woman in chains

So free her, so free her, so free her
So free her, so free her (the sun and the moon)
So free (the wind and the rain) her, so free her
So free her, so free her, so free her, so free her
So free her, so free her (the sun and the moon)
So free (the wind and the rain) her, so free her

Going far, Getting nowhere
Going far, The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
Going far, The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
The way you are

These fingers aren't my fingers
These hands are not my hands
No one sees and no one cares What gets broken
Not for rhyme and not for reason
What gets broken
What gets broken

Going far, Getting nowhere
Going far, The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
Going far, The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
The way you are

And the rhythm of machinery
Slows to a heartbeat
Echoing ghost just laid by
Those who whistle while they work
Out of time and out of season
What gets broken

Going far, Getting nowhere
Going far, The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
Going far, The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
The way you are

Going far, Getting nowhere
The way you are
