Joyride

I hit the road out of nowhere 
I had to jump in my car 
And be a rider in a love game 
Following the stars 
Don't need no book of wisdom 
I get no money talk at all 

She has a train going downtown 
She's got a club on the moon 
And she's telling all her secrets 
In a wonderful balloon 

She's the heart of the funfair 
She's got me whistling her private tune 

And it all begins where it ends 
And she's all mine, my magic friend 

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you 
Come on join the joyride 
Join the joyride 

She's a flower, I can paint her 
She's a child of the sun 
We're a part of this together 
Could never turn around and run 
Don't need no fortune teller 
To know where my lucky love belongs, 
Oh no 

Cause it all begins again when it ends 
And we're all magic friends 

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you 
Come on join the joyride 
Join the joyride 

Be a joyrider 

I take you on a skyride 
A feeling like you're spellbound 
The sunshine is a lady 
Who ROX you like a baby 

She says: Hello, you fool, I love you 
Come on join the joyride 
Join the joyride.

Hotblooded

You know I'm hotblooded, baby...

Get on up and kick it 
all the systems are ready to go.
Well, are you ready or not?
Hey, I gotta know!
Baby, lay down the blues
and let those guitars bleed.
I'm everything you wanted,
I'm all you ever need.

Cos I'm hotblooded, hotblooded, 
I need your lovin',
I need your love so bad.

Flash all the lights, 
I'll be a camera tonight.
I'll snap the look on your face
when I'm squeezing you tight.
Yea, sisters o'soul, 
we gotta burn this old house down.
Keep on beatin' those drums,
keep on pumpin' up that sound, 

yea yea yea yea yea.
Hotblooded, I'm hotblooded, 
I need your lovin',
I need your love so bad.
I'm hotblooded, hotblooded, 
you gotta know it, 
I need a shot of love so bad. 

I stay up late
where the night's alive. 
No sleep at all 
I work nine to five. 
It's honey do that 
and honey do this:
"Can I call you home?"
"Can I call you home?"
"Can I call?" -
you can call me miss...

Hotblooded, I'm hotblooded, 
I need your lovin',
I need your love so bad.

Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)

In a time 
where the sun descends alone, 
I ran a long long way from home
to find a heart that's made of stone. 

I'll try, 
I just need a little time
to get your face right out of my mind, 
to see the world through different eyes.

Every time I see you 
oh I try to hide away 
but when we meet
it seems I can't let go.
Every time you leave the room 
I feel I'm fading like a flower.

Tell me why?
When I scream there's no reply, 
when I reach out 
there's nothing to find, 
when I sleep 
I break down and cry.
Cry,... yeah...

Every time I see you 
oh I try to hide away 
but when we meet
it seems I can't let go.
Every time you leave the room 
I feel I'm fading like a flower.
Fading like a rose, 
fading like a rose, 
beaten by the storm, 
talking to myself, 
getting washed by the rain, 
it's such a cold cold town. 
oh, such a cold town...

Every time I see you 
oh I try to hide away 
but when we meet
it seems I can't let go.
Every time you leave the room 
I feel I'm fading like a flower.
........

Knockin' On Every Door

Hey now honey,
You got to face the floor,
You headed for the heart
But you couldn't find the door,
Could you?
Could you?
Well, I'm standing in the sun
But I'm living in the rain,
I got to get a-whirlin'
Like a human hurricane over you,
Over you.
Now you're looking like a fox on the run.
And you're faster than a shot from a gun.
I'm pointing at you, oh you.
Talking 'bout you, hey you.
I thought we had love in store -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Babe, I've seen it all before -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Ain't no lovin' you ignore -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Keep keep knock knockin' on every door -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Hey now honey,
Time is all you've spent.
You moved into the bed
But you couldn't pay the rent.
Could you?
In the twinkle of an eye you electrify.
I got to get a-shootin' like a rocket in the sky,
Bye bye, goodbye.
Now you're burning like you're hot on the scene.
Don't you love to steal a part of my dream?
I'm looking at you, oh you.
Talking 'bout you, yea you.
I thought we had love in store -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Babe, i've seen it all before -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Ain't no sugar you ignore -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Keep keep knock knockin' on every door.
I thought we used to have love in store -
You keep knock knockin' on every door.
Hey babe, don't run around here no more -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Ain't no sugar you ignore -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
Keep keep knock knockin' on every door -
You keep on knockin' on every door.
You'd better learn your lesson now...

Spending My Time

What's the time?
Seems it's already morning.
I see the sky,
It's so beautiful and blue.
The TV's on
But the only thing showing
Is a picture of you.
Oh I get up
And make myself some coffee.
I try to read a bit
But the story's too thin.
I thank the lord above
That you're not here to see me
In this shape I'm in.
Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you think of me too.
I'm spending my time.
I try to call
But I don't know what to tell you.
I leave a kiss
On your answering machine.
Oh help me please,
Is there someone who can make me
Wake up from this dream?
Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you
Are missing me too.
I'm spending my time,
Watching the sun go down.
I fall asleep
To the sound of "tears of a clown,"
A prayer gone blind.
I'm spending my time.
My friends keep telling me:
Hey, life will go on,
Time will make sure
I'll get over you.
This silly game of love -
You play, you win only to lose.

I Remember You

What's the time?
Seems it's already morning.
I see the sky,
It's so beautiful and blue.
The TV's on
But the only thing showing
Is a picture of you.
Oh I get up
And make myself some coffee.
I try to read a bit
But the story's too thin.
I thank the lord above
That you're not here to see me
In this shape I'm in.
Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you think of me too.
I'm spending my time.
I try to call
But I don't know what to tell you.
I leave a kiss
On your answering machine.
Oh help me please,
Is there someone who can make me
Wake up from this dream?
Spending my time,
Watching the days go by.
Feeling so small,
I stare at the wall,
Hoping that you
Are missing me too.
I'm spending my time,
Watching the sun go down.
I fall asleep
To the sound of "tears of a clown,"
A prayer gone blind.
I'm spending my time.
My friends keep telling me:
Hey, life will go on,
Time will make sure
I'll get over you.
This silly game of love -
You play, you win only to lose.

Watercolours In The Rain

Going through the motions.
Ending up nowhere at all.
Can't see the sun on my wall.
Going through emotions.
Ending up on a frozen morning
With a heart not even broken.
Seems I've been running all my life
All my life.
Seems I've been running all my life
All my life
Like watercolours in the rain.
Find a place to settle down.
Get a job
In a city nearby
And watch the trains roll on by.
I'll find the falling star.
I'll fall in love
With the eyes of a dreamer
And a dream worth believing.
Seems I've been running all my life
All my life.
Seems I've been running all my life
All my life
Like watercolours in the rain.

The Big L.

She's the top,
She's got the world on a string.
She makes me boogie,
Makes me do anything yea yea.
Hey now,
Touch the sky,
You've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
Well, she's a miracle,
She's all that I need
Like the water and the air that i breathe yea yea.
Hey now,
Reach the sky,
There's a certain kind of look in your smile.
And I know what love can do.
Yes I know what hearts can do.
The big love
Is taking the wheel,
The big love
Goes head over heels,
The big lust,
Bring it into the small world,
The bigger, the better.
Big love,
Waiting to catch the big one,
Head over heels,
The big one,
Bring it into the small world.
I'm building the big big love,
I'm building the big big love.
It's kinda strange,
A bit mysterious,
I gotta take it oh so so serious.
Hey now,
Touch the sky,
You've got a certain kind of look in your eyes.
It used to be so hard,
So lonely at night,
Well, she's my baby and I'm feeling alright.
Hey now,
Move the sky,
There's a certain kind of look in that smile.
When I'm making love with her.
When I'm making love to her yea.
It has to be a big thing.
It's bringing me to my knees.
Has to be a big thing, big thing,
Ya know what I'm saying...

Soul Deep

Save a prayer for a sinner and a saint,
My baby's coming back.
Say a prayer, hide hide away yea baby's coming back.
Hey hey hey, ain't gonna trouble his wandering mind,

Spinning the heart round a wire.
Soul deep -
A heavenly wave.

Heating the heart like a fire,
Soul deep is taking my breath away-ay-ay.


Save a tear till the curtain will fall,
Well I'm saving them all for you.
Knock on wood,
Is it understood that I'm saving it up for you.

My baby's coming back.
Say a prayer, hide hide away yea yea baby's coming back.
Hey hey hey ride on the soul train now I'm too close to hide,
Gonna take on the time to find out if my love is soul deep... 

(Do You Get) Excited?

When the day gets dark
Over a thousand streets
And you feel your heart is a living beat.
When you're all alone
And you close your eyes,
Naked to the bone
The dream comes alive.
Do you get excited
When I touch you in the night?
My oh my...
Do you get excited
When I meet you every night?
You won't let the night pass you by.
When your body's hot,
The window's open wide.
This moment's all you got in this race of life.
When you feel the fire is getting close to you,
Hey baby,
You know I'm lonely too.
Do you get excited
When I touch you in the night?
My oh my...
Do you get excited
When I meet you every night?
You won't let the night pass you by.
I wanna know.

Church Of Your Heart

Can't we leave the world outside
Just for a while?
Just for a while?
And spend some time,
You and I,
Under this bright glorious sky.
It's been so long
Since I first saw you,
But I still love that smile in your eyes.
Yes it's true,
Right from the start,
I believed in the church of your heart.
Yes it's you
That made me be part of and believe in
The church of your heart.
Step inside,
Lay yourself down just for a while,
Rest for a while.
I can hear a thundering sound beating inside
When you are around.
It's been so long
Since I first met you,
Since we made love,
You know how time flies.
Yes it's true,
Right from the start,
I believed in the church of your heart.
Yes it's you
That made me be part of and believe in
The church of your heart.
In the church of your heart.

Small Talk

It's not the chapters he reads
When you're feeling low down.
It's not the touch of his skin
When you kiss him goodnight.
It's not the money he spends
When you want to buy a daydream
And not that miracle smile
That makes the sky bright.
It's not the way his hands behave
When you've turned out the light.
It's the small small small talk
That makes it all happen.
Small small small talk
That makes you want to fly,
Yes it does.
It's not the way he believes
In you like a religion.
It's not the thrill that you get
When he's holding you tight.
It's not the way his eyes persuade you
To stay the night.
It's the small small small talk
That makes it all happen (just like that).
Small small small talk
That makes you feel like flying,
Yes it does.
Information, heart and soul, a whisper, a word,
Confessions
That have to be heard.
Small small talk, small small talk.
Come on now, come on now, come on -
You make it rock so heavenly.
Come on now, come on now, come on -
You seem to talk so heavenly.
Big words... small talk...

Physical Fascination

Hey, I got to go,
Get aboard attack a love jet
Heaven and back.
My- my-my-my-my-my-my.
And I got to find
A power station with a beat,
I can't take no conversation.
My-my-my-my-my-my-my.
Looking for the inspiration.
All succumb to the physical fascination,
All succumb to the physical fascination.
Hi! Shake
Shake it up,
This love divine,
You're out of touch, babe,
I'm going out of my mind.
My-my- my-my-my-my-mind.
Talk to me!
Why don't you talk to me?
C'mon and use your body language
And have yourself a good time.
My-my- my-my-my-my-my.
And radiate your sweet temptation.
All succumb to the physical fascination,
All surrender to the physical fascination.
Yea yea yea yea.

Things Will Never Be The Same

Lay it down,
Pull my heart to the ground.
Time's getting cold,
Now the leaves all turn hard and blue.
And I know
When I gaze to the sun,
No place to hide
I got nowhere to run from you,
Away from you.
Hold me now
Girl, I don't know when,
When we will ever meet again.
That was then,
Baby, this is now,
I try to get over you.
Losing you...
Things will never be the same.
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
Things would never be...
In your hand,
Babe, I don't understand,
You've got the eyes of a child
But you hurt like a man always do,
Always do.
Touch me now
Girl, I don't know when,
When we will
Ever meet again.
That was then,
Baby, this is now,
Time won't get over you.
Losing you...
Things will never be the same.
Can you hear me call your name?
If we changed it back again
Things would never be the same.

Perfect Day

Breathe some faith into my chest.
Lay me down,
I need the rest.
Ever since the sky turned grey
I've waited for the perfect day.
Hey now -
It seems you've always
Touched me like the sun.
There's no escape for the broken-hearted,
There's no return once you've lost your way.
I say a prayer now
Our love's departed
That you'll come back to stay
And bring the perfect day.
Blinded by a crazy light
I fell into the darkest night.
Those magic ties, the two of us,
I couldn't see it turn to dust.
Hey now -
It seems you've always
Reached me like the sun.
There's no escape for the broken-hearted,
There's no return once you've lost your way.
I say a prayer now
Your love's departed
That you'll come back to stay.
Bring back the perfect day.
