Only When I Sleep :

You're only just a dreamboat

Sailing in my head

You swim my secret oceans

Of coral blue and red

Your smell is incense burning

Your touch is silken yet

It reaches through my skin

And moving from within

It clutches at my breast

But it's only when I sleep

See you in my dreams

You got me spinning round and round

Turning upside-down

But I only hear you breathe

Somewhere in my sleep

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside-down

But its only when I sleep

And when I wake from slumber

Your shadow's disappear

Your breath is just a sea mist

Surrounding my body

I'm workin' through the daytime

But when it's time to rest

I'm lying in my bed

Listening to my breath

Falling from the edge

But it's only when I sleep

See you in my dreams

You got me spinning round and round

Turning upside-down

But I only hear you breathe

Somewhere in my sleep

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside-down

But its only when I sleep

It's only when I sleep

(Sharon instrumental)

Up to the sky, Where angels fly

I'll never die, Hawaiian High

In bed I lie, No need to cry

My sleeping cry, Hawaiian High

It's reaching through my skin

Movin' from within

Clutches at my breasts

But it's only when I sleep....

See you in my dreams

You got me spinning round and round

Turning upside-down

But I only hear you breathe

Somewhere in my sleep

Got me spinning round and round

Turning upside-down

But its only when I sleep

Up to the sky, Where angels fly

I'll never die, Hawaiian High

In bed I lie, No need to cry

My sleeping cry, Hawaiian High

 


  

What Can I Do :

I haven't slept at all in days

It's been so long since we've talked

And I have been here many times

I just don't know what I'm doing wrong

What can I do to make you love me

What can I do to make you care

What can I say to make you feel this

What can I do to get you there

There's only so much I can take

And I just got to let go

And who knows I might feel better, yeah

If I don't try and I don't hope

What can I do to make you love me

What can I do to make you care

What can I say to make you feel this

What can I do to get you there

No more waiting, no more, aching

No more fighting, no more, trying...

Maybe there's nothing more to say

And in a funny way I'm calm

Because the power is not mine

I'm just going to let it fly...

What can I do to make you love me

What can I do to make you care

What can I say to make you feel this

What can I do to get you there

What can I do to make you love me

What can I do to make you care

What can I say to make you feel this

What can I do to get you there

And love me...love me....love me..

 


 

Radio :

Its late at night, and Im feeling down...

There are couples standing on the street

Sharing summer kisses and city sounds...

So I step inside, for a glass of wine.

With a full glass and an empty heart,

I search for something

to occupy my mind...

But you are in my head,

swimming forever in my head,

Tangled in my dreams,swimming forever...

So I listen to the radio

(listen to the radio)

All the songs we used to know

(listen to the radio)

So I listen to the radio

(listen to the radio)

Remember where we used to go

Now its morning light,

and it's cold outside,

Caught up in a distant dream I try

And think that you are by my side...

So I leave my bed, and I try to dress,

Wondering why my mind plays tricks

And fools me into thinking you are there

But you're just in my head,

Swimming forever in my head,

Not lying in my bed,

just swimming forever...

So I listen to the radio

(listen to the radio)

All the songs we used to know

(listen to the radio)

So I listen to the radio

(listen to the radio)

Remember where we used to go

I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)

All the songs we used to know

(listen to the radio)

I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)

Remember how we used to go

You are in my head,

swimming forever in my head

Tangled in my dreams, swimming forever

(swimming forever)

Swimming forever...

So I listen to the radio

(listen to the radio)

All the songs we used to know

(listen to the radio)

So I listen to the radio

(listen to the radio)

Remember where we used to go

I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)

All the songs we used to know

(listen to the radio)

I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)

Forgiven Not Forgotten :

All alone, staring on

Watching her life go by

When her days are grey

and her nights are black

Different shades of mundane

And the one-eyed furry toy

that lies upon the bed

has often heard her cry

and heard her whisper out a name

long forgiven, but not forgotten

(Chorus : )

You're forgiven not forgotten

You're forgiven not forgotten

You're forgiven not forgotten

You're not forgotten

A bleeding heart torn apart

Left on an icy grave

And the room where they

once lay, face to face

Nothing could get in their way

but now the memories of the man

are haunting her days

And the craving never fades

She's still dreaming of the man

long forgiven, but not forgotten (Chorus)

Still alone, staring on

Wishing her life goodbye

As she goes searching for the man

long forgiven, but not forgotten (Chorus)

 


At Your Side :

(Soon...)

 

 


Little Wing :

Now she's walking through the clouds

With a circus mind

That's running wild

Butterflies and zebras

And moonbeams and fairytales

All she ever thinks about

is riding with the wind

When I'm sad she comes to me

With a thousand smiles

She gives to me, free

'It's alright, it's alright' she says

Take anything you want from me

Anything

Now she's walking through the clouds

With a circus mind

That's running wild

Butterflies and zebras

And moonbeams and fairytales

All she ever thinks about is riding with the wind

When I'm sad she comes to me

With a thousand smiles

She gives to me free

'It's alright, it's alright' she says

Take anything you want from me

Anything

Fly Little Wing...Yeah, Yeah

Fly Little Wing...

I want her to fly

 


 

No Frontiers :

If life is a river and your heart is a boat

And just like a water baby,

born to float,

And if life is a wild wind...

that blows way on high,

And your heart is Amelia dying to fly,

Heaven knows no frontiers,

and I've seen heaven in your eyes

And if life is a bar room...

...in which we must wait,'round the man...

...with his fingers on the ivory gates,

Where we sing until dawn of our fears...

...and our fates,

And we stack all the dead men...

...in self addressed crates,

In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark,

That somehow this black night,

Feels warmer for the spark,

Warmer for the spark,

To hold us 'til the day,

When fear will lose its grip,

And heaven has its way,

Heaven knows no frontiers,

And I've seen heaven in your eyes

If your life is a rough bed of brambles...

...and nails,

And your spirit's a slave

to man's whips and man's jails,

Where you thirst

and you hunger for justice and right,

And your heart is a pure flame...

...of man's constant night,

In your eyes faint...

...as the singing of a lark,

That somehow this black night,

Feels warmer for the spark,

Warmer for the spark,

To hold us 'til the day

when fear will lose its grip,

And heaven has its way,

And heaven has its way,

When all will harmonise,

And know what's in our hearts,

The dream will realise

Heaven knows no frontiers,

And I've seen heaven in your eyes,

Heaven knows no frontiers,

And I've seen heaven in your eyes

 


Queen of Hollywood :

She drove a long way through the night

From an urban neighborhood

She left her mother in a fight

For a dream misunderstood

And her friends they talk on corners

They could never comprehend

But there was always something different

In the way she held a stare

And the pictures that she painted

Were of glamour and of flair

And her boyfriend though he loved her

Knew he couldn't quite fulfill

He could never meet her there

(Chorus : )

She's never gonna be like the one before,

She read it in her stars

that there's something more

No matter what it takes, no matter how she breaks

She'll be the Queen of Hollywood

And the cynics they will wonder

What's the difference with this dream

And the dreams of countless others

All believing in TV

They see their hand prints in a sidewalk

Flashing cameras on the scene

And a shining limousine

(Chorus)

 She's believing in a dream

It's a loaded fantasy

Now her mother collects cut-outs

And the pictures make her smile

But if she saw behind the curtains

It could only make her cry

She's got hand prints on her body

Sad moonbeams in her eyes

not so innocent a child

 


 

Old Town :

The girl's a fool, she broke the rules,

she hurt him hard

This time he will break down

She's lost his trust and so she must know all is lost

The system has broke down

Romance has broke down

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broken down

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broke down

She plays it hard, she plays it tough

But that's enough, the love is over

She's broke his heart and that is rough

But in the end he'll soon recover

The romance is over

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broken down (yeaheah yeah)

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broke down

(trumpet's solo)

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broken down (yha yha ha)

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broke down

I've been spending my money in the old town

It's not the same honey, with you not around

I've been spending my time in the old town

I sure miss you honey, when you're not around

When you're not around this old town

 

Ola

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broken down (hehehe yeah)

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broke down

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broken down (yha yhaha)

This boy is cracking up

This boy has broke down

 


Lough Erin Shore :

Instrumental

 


So Young :

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

We are taking it easy

Bright and breezy, yeah

And we are living it up

Just fine and dandy, yeah

We are caught in a haze

on these lazy summerdays

Spending all of our nights just

alauging and kissing yeah

And it doesn't really matter

if we don't eat

And it doesn't really matter

if we never sleep

No it doesn't really matter,

really doesn't matter at all

Coz we were young now,

we are so young, so young now

And when tommorow comes,

we'll just do it all again

We are chasing the moon

Just running wild and free

We are following through

Every dream, and every need

And it doesn't really matter

if we don't eat

And it doesn't really matter

if we never sleep

No it doesn't really matter,

really doesn't matter at all

Coz we are so young now,

we are so young, so young now

And when tommorow comes,

we'll just do it all again

Yeah, we are so young now,

we are so young, so young now

And when tommorow comes,

we'll just do it all again

Oh, again, Oh again, yeah,

Oh again, Oh again!

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

So young now, we are,

so so young now

And when tommorow comes,

we'll just do it all again (hands slap)

Yeah we are so young now,

we are so young, so young now

And when tommorow comes,

we'll just do it all again

We are so young!

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah x2

 


Everybody Hurts : From REM

When the day is long and the night,

the night is yours alone,

when you're sure you've had enough

of this life, well hang on.

Don't let yourself go, everybody cries

and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong.

Now it's time to sing along.

When your day is night alone,

(hold on, hold on)

if you feel like letting go, (hold on)

when you think you've had too much

of this life,well hang on.

Everybody hurts.

Take comfort in your friends.

Everybody hurts.

Don't throw your hand. Oh, no.

Don't throw your hand.

If you feel like you're alone,

no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life,

the days and nights are long,

when you think you've had too much

of this life to hang on.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,

everybody cries.

And everybody hurts sometimes.

And everybody hurts sometimes.

So, hold on, hold on.

Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on.

Hold on, hold on.

(repeat & fade)

(Everybody hurts. You are not alone.)
