The Road To Hell (Part 2)

Well I'm standing by a river
But the water doesn't flow
It boils with every poison you can think of
And I'm underneath the streetlights
But the light of joy I know
Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
And the perverted fear of violence
Chokes a smile on every face
And common sense is ringing out the bells
This ain't no technological breakdown
Oh no, this is the road to hell

And all the roads jam up with credit
But there's nothing you can do
It's all just bits of paper
Flying away from you
Look out world take a good look
What comes down here
You must learn this lesson fast
And learn it well
This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway
Oh no, this is the road to hell

Fool (If You Think It's Over)

A dying flame, you're free again
Who could love and do that to you
All dressed in black, he won't be coming back
Save your tears, you've got years and years
The pains of seventeens
Unreal, they're only dreams
Save your crying for the day

Fool if you think it's over
Because you said goodbye
Fool if you think it's over - I'll tell you why
New born eyes always cry with pain
At the first look of the morning sun
You're a fool if you think it's over
It's just begun
Miss teenage dream, such a tragic scene
He's knocked your crown and ran away
First wound of pride and how
you've cried and cried
But save your tears you've years and years
Fool if you think it's over...

I'll buy your first good wine
We'll have a real good time
And save your crying for the day
That may not come but anyone

Fool if you think it's over...

Let's Dance

When you sing of the joy only love can bring
Heaven knows it's my heart and my soul
Caught in a world full of tears
So many sad times and fears
So while there's a chance and you're near
Let's dance, Let's dance

There's a world
Far away from the one we see
There's a dream
I will never let go
One thing is certainly true
This moment's for me and you
So while there's not a thing we can do
Let's dance, Let's dance

You Can Go Your Own Way

You can go your own way
You can go your own way
It doesn't matter what the others say
Cause you can go your own way
You can go your own way
You got a ring on your finger
A chain around your heart
Searching for an answer
Looking for your own control
Walk away from the leader
Walk away from the books
Walk away from the TV
Take a long hard look
You can go your own way

You can go your own way
You can go your own way
You can go your own way
You can go your own way
You can go your own way
You can go your own way
It doesn't matter what the others say
Cause you can go your own way
You can go your own way

Julia

Eyes so bright
So big and wide
Make you feel strange
Somewhere deep inside
It's the face of an angel
Soul of the devil may care
I'd love to know
What goes on in there
She needs your love
She needs it every day
But speak of love
See her laugh and run away

Julia, which way will you go
Julia I wanna know
Julia, only the moon and stars
Julia, know just where you are

Julia

See the dance
That needs no alibi
You don't need to dream
When you know you can fly
She needs your love
She needs it every day
But speak of love
See her laugh and run away

Julia, which way will you go
Julia I wanna know
Julia, only the moon and stars
Julia, know just where you are
Julia

Stainsby Girls

Some girls used to kiss and run
And never new what they had done
Some girls always wasted time
They keep you hanging on the line
Some loved horses and always
Stayed at home...
But the Stainsby girls loved
The Rolling Stones
Now some had games
That you had to play
Making rules along the way
Strangle attractions, newly found
Pride and passion, kicked around
Some girls stole your heart
Like most girls do
But a Stainsby girl she could break it in two
And I fell in love
With a Stainsby girl

Deepest waters, Stainsby blue
Running straight, running true
Names and faces, fade away
Memories here to stay
Some girl stole your heart
Like most girls do
But a Stainsby girl she could break it in two
And I fell in love
With a Stainsby girl

Tell Me There's a Heaven

The little girl she said to me
What are those things that I can see
Each night when I come home from school
When mama calls me in for tea
On every night a baby dies
And every night a mama cries
What makes those men do what they do
To make that person black and blue

Grandpa says they're happy now
They sit with God in Paradise
With angels wings and still somehow
It makes me feel
Like ice

Tell me there's a heaven
Tell that it's true
Tell me that there's a reason
Why I'm seeing what I do
Tell me there's a heaven
Where all those people go
Tell me that they're happy now
Papa tell me that it's so

So do I tell her that it's true
That there's a place for me and you
Where hungry children smile and say
We wouldn't have no other way
That every painful crack of bone
Is a step along the way
That every wrong done is a game plan
To that great and joyful day
And I'm looking at the father and son
And I'm looking at the
mother and daughter
And I'm watching them in tears in pain
And I'm watching them suffer
Don't tell that little girl
Tell me

Josephine

There's rain on my window
But I'm thinking of you
Tears on my pillow
But will I come through
Josephine
I send you all my love
And every step I take I take for you
Josephine
Storm on my radar but I can still fly
You are the reason
The blue in my sky
Josephine
A life without reason
I was walking away
In the coldest of winters
Then night becomes day
Josephine
I send you all my love
And every single step I take
I take for you
Josephine

Steel River

I was born and raised, on Steel River
I see it all like it was yesterday
The ships and bridges, they were all delivered
From Sydney Harbour to the 'Cisco bay
And I met my love, down on the Steel River
We served our dreams and
Spent our childhood days
In rainy streets, we'd kiss away the shivers,
And hide in fear from the latest craze...
Dancing to Motown, making love
With a Carol King record playing
And oh how I loved you...
Say goodbye!
Ten thousand bombers hit the Steel River
And many died to keep her running free
And she survived but now she's gone forever
Her burning heart is just a memory,
And I ran away from life on Steel River
Luck or not, I gladly took the break
The odds were low, the chances nearly zero
But a chance it was, that I had to take...
Say goodbye, Steel River
They say its good to see them back again
I know it hurts to see what really happened,
I know one salmon, aint no good to them
They were born and raised to
Serve their steel mother
It was all they taught and all they ever knew,
And they believed they would
Keep their children
Even though, not a single word was true!
Say goodbye, wave goodbye
Steel River

On The Beach

Between the eyes of love
I call your name
Behind those guarded walls
I used to go
Upon a Summer wind
There's a certain melody
Takes me back to the place
That I know
Down on the beach

The secrets of the Summer
I will keep
The sands of time will blow a mystery
No one but you and I
Underneath that moonlit sky
Take me back to that place I know
On the beach

Forever in my dreams
My heart will be
Hanging on to this sweet memory
A day of strange desire
And a night that burned like fire
Take me back to the place
That I know
On the beach

I Can Hear Your Heartbeat

In the silence of a high street
In the whisper of the night
From the darkness of the empty hours
To the early morning light
From the hustle down on the Main Street
With all its lights so bright
To the trucker on the highway
Pressing through the night

I can hear your heartbeat
I can hear your heartbeat
Girl the sound of you is so sweet to me
And I am sailing on your wind song
I can feel the summer breeze
You've got me walking on my tiptoes
You've got me standing on my knees

From the mills way down in Pittsburgh
To the clubs of gay Paris
No matter where I roam girl
You can always get to me

I can hear your heartbeat
I can hear your heartbeat
The sound of you is so sweet to me

And we got freezing Coca-Cola
And we got anything you want
And I'm moving on that back beat girl
But it's you that sings the song

Because I can hear your heartbeat
I can hear your heartbeat
Girl the sound of you is so sweet to me

All Summer Long

I've got my wheels
And I've got my clean shirt
I got enough to get me where she'll be
Skin is burning
Hearts on fire
Take my own dream
To the sea
All I know is
She well be there
Turn it up
Turn it on
All summer long

Look ahead
There's nothing but blue sky
Kiss the rain
And laugh as it goes by
Learn to smile
While everyone else cries
Sing this song
All summer long
All summer long

I've been waiting
Through the winter
I've been dreaming
Of this day
All I know is
She will be there
Turn it up
Turn it on
Turn it up
Turn it on
All summer long

The Blue Café

My world is miles of endless roads
That leaves a trail of broken dreams
Where have you been
I hear you say?
I'll meet you at the Blue Café
This is wear the one who knows
Meets the one that does not care
The cards of fate
The older shows
To the younger one, who dares to take
The chance of no return

Where have you been?
Where are you going to?
I want to know what is new
I want to go with you
What have you seen?
What do you know that is new?
Where are you going to?
Because I want to go with you

The cost is great, the price is high
Take all you know, and say goodbye
Your innocence, inexperience
Mean nothing now

Because, this is where the one who knows
Meets the one that does not care
Where have you been?
I hear you say
I'll meet you at the Blue Café

Where have you been?
Where are you going to?
I want to know what is new
I want to go with you
What have you seen?
What do you know that is new?
Where are you going to?
Because I want to go with you

So meet me down at the Blue Cafe
So meet me down at the Blue Cafe

Where have you been?
Where are you going to?
I want to know what is new
I want to go with you
What have you seen?
What do you know that is new?
Where are you going to?
I want to go with you

Auberge

On the hard fast train
On the road to gain
Something gets right
Through to your telling bone
Here's a sudden itch
An electric twitch
Sometimes I swear this
body's got a mind of it's own
This is the naked truth
This is the light
There's only one place left to go
Auberge

You meet a silent type
On a windy trail
With a shiny cloak and an
unseen silver dagger
You can talk till you ache
Give yourself one more break
You can tell by the look on his face
That it just doesn't matter
This is the naked truth
This is the light
There's only one place left to go
Auberge

Give me a weekend
Give me a day
Don't like what I'm seeing
Thought I hear what you say
Think with a dagger
And you'll die on your knees
Begging for mercy
Singing please mister please
This is the naked truth
This is the light
There's only one place left to go
Auberge

Driving Home For Christmas

I am driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can't wait to see those faces
I am driving home for Christmas - yea,
Well, I am moving down that line
And it's been so long but I will be there
I sing this song to pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

It's going to take some time,
But I'll get there
Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights on the run
But soon there'll be a freeway...
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you
Though you can't hear me
When I get through and feel you near me

I am driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories

I take a look at the driver next to me
He's just the same...
Just the same

Top to toe in tailbacks
I got red lights on the run
I'm driving home for Christmas
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you
Though you can't hear me
When I get through
and feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories
I take a look at the driver next to me
He's just the same...
He's driving home
Driving home
Driving home for Christmas

Nothing To Fear

I feel your heart in dusty whispers
The wind is cold around you moon
It's getting hard to keep our distance
I know your time is coming soon
Don't point your dream on my horizon
Don't take your rose too far from home
Please don't forget we're not each other
Each soul has black thorns of his own

I see you dancing
Your song is clear
You've got to show me
Got to show me
There's nothing to fear
Nothing to fear

I have my loved ones you have yours
So let us gaze upon the feast
In God's own name let's eat together
In God's own name
please come in peace
See how our children play together
While you and me we stand alone
I know we'll never be each other
If I leave you leave me alone

I see you dancing
Your song is clear
You've got to show me
Got to show me
There's nothing to fear
Nothing to fear

Saudade Part 1 & 2 (Tribute to Ayrton Senna)

Saudade, Saudade,
Saudade, Saudade
Nothing lasts forever
But somethings end too soon
Now those fields of fascination
Are just dull and empty rooms
But oh, that luck what did it show
Close the book,
now we will never know
Saudade, Saudade
