01 - Never Grow Old :

I had a dream

Strange visit

It was my perfect day

Open my eyes

I realize

This is my perfect day

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Do-do-do-do

Birds in the sky

They look so high

This is my perfect day

I feel the breeze

I feel it is

It is my perfect day

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Hope you never grow old

Forever young

I hope you stay

Forever young

Do-do-do-do


  

02 - Analyse :

Close your eyes

Close your eyes

Breathe the air out there

We are free, we can be wide open

For you open my eyes

To the beauty I see

We will pray, we will stay

Wide open

Don't analyse

Don't analyse

Don't go that way

Don't live that way

That would paralyse your evolution

Don't analyse

Don't analyse

Don't go that way

Don't live that way

That would paralyse your evolution

La la la

This greatest moment

La la la

The strangest day

La la la

The greatest love of them all

La la la

This greatest moment

La la la

The strangest day

La la la

The greatest love of them all

Close your eyes

Close your eyes

Breathe the air out there

Fantasize, fantasize

We are open

For you open my eyes

To the beauty I see

We will pray, we will stay

Together

La la la

This greatest moment

La la la

The strangest day

La la la

The greatest love of them all

La la la

This greatest moment

La la la

The strangest day

La la la

The greatest love of them all

La la la la la la la la

La la la la la la la la


 

03 - Time is Ticking Out :

We'd better think about the things we say

We'd better think about the games we play

The world went round, around and round

We'd better think about the consequences

We'd better think about the global senses

The time went down, the time went down

What about Chernobyl?

What about radiation?

We don't know, we don't know

What about deprivation?

Gluttony, the human nation?

We don't know, we don't know

For me love is all, for me love is all

For me love is all, for me love is all

Time is ticking out

Looks like we screwed up

the ozone layer

I wonder if the politicians care

The time went down, the time went down

What about our children then?

Is there nothing left for them?

We don't know, we don't know

For me love is all, for me love is all

For me love is all, for me love is all

Ahh la la la the oxygen,

ahh la la la the oxygen

For me love is all, for me love is all

For me love is all, for me love is all

Time is ticking out yeah

Time is ticking out


 

04 - Dying Inside :

Terrible thing

It was a terrible thing to see her dying

It was a terribe thing

It was a terrible thing

to see her dying inside

To see her dying

Won't you come out

And play the games we played

Won't you speak out

And say the things you'd say

The lady loved her gold

The lady lost her soul

It was a terrible thing

It was a terrible thing to see her dying

It was a terrible thing

It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside

To see her dying

Do you remember

the things we used to do?

Do you remember

the way it was for you?

The lady loved her gold

The lady lost her soul

It was a terrible thing

It was a terrible thing to see her dying

It was a terrible thing

It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside

To see her die

La...


 

05 - This is the Day :

I never had a friend like you

This is the day

Your skin is white, your eyes are blue

This is the day

But the wind might change

I will still remain

I will always be there for you

A-ha

These thoughts, they circle in my mind

This is the day

The demons I can't leave behind

This is the day

Don't be insecure

I'll be at your door

I will always be there for you

We'll save you

We'll save you

We'll save you

Stay! Stay!

We'll save you

We'll save you

We'll save you

Stay! Stay!

Stay!

Put forth thy grace into my mind

This is the day

Put forth thy grace thou art divine

This is the day

Don't be insecure

I'll be at your door

I will always be there for you

We'll save you

We'll save you

We'll save you

Stay! Stay!

We'll save you

We'll save you

We'll save you

Stay! Stay!

Stay!

But the wind might change

I will still remain

I will still be here

But the wind might change

I will still remain

I will always be there for you

We'll save you

We'll save you

We'll save you

Stay! Stay!

We'll save you

We'll save you

We'll save you

Stay! Stay!

Stay!


 

06 - The Concept :

Come here, my lover

Something's on your mind

Listen to no other

They could be unkind

Hold on to the concept of love, always

Darling

Hold on to the concept of love, always

Take life between us

Live it like we choose

They'll never see us

I will hear you call

Hold on to the concept, always

Darling

Hold on to the concept, always

Night all night all night


 

07 - Wake up and Smell the Coffee :

I, I went to hell

I might as well

Learn by my mistakes

I at twenty-four

Was insecure

Do whatever it takes

Come on and

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter

It's time, smell the coffee, the coffee

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter

This time smell the coffee, the coffee

She's only got one reason to live

This is your life

She's only got one message to give

Give it tonight

She's so gorgeous

I'll do anything

She's so gorgeous

I'll lose everything, everyday

Come on and

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter

It's time, smell the coffee, the coffee

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

Shatter, shatter, shatter, shatter

This time smell the coffee, the coffee

She's only got one reason to live

This is your life

She's only got one message to give

Give it tonight

She's so gorgeous

I'll do anything

She's so gorgeous

I'll lose everything

She's so gorgeous

I'll do anything

She's so gorgeous

I'll lose everything, everyday


 

08 - Pretty Eyes :

Pretty eyes, pretty eyes

Not a cloud in my day

Not a cloud in my way

Angel eyes, no disguise

No pretention is here

No pretention, no fear

Don't leave me calling

Don't leave me falling

Don't leave me calling

Don't leave me falling

Stay awhile, stay awhile

I will tell you my mind

I will tell you my mind

I would give everything

Just to take all your pain

Just to take all your pain

Don't leave me calling

Don't leave me falling

Don't leave me calling

Don't leave me falling


 

09 - I Really Hope :

I've been down this road before

Now I'm coming back for more

This is like a déja-vu

I was born to be with you

Into the night we went to sleep

You and I were meant for keeps

Into the night we went to play

You and I

I really hope you'll always be

So in love with me

I really hope we'll always stay

So attached this way

I really hope you'll always be

So in love with me

I really hope we'll always stay

So attached this way

So beware of the pitfall

We don't have to change at all

And our light will not burn out

It's what freedom's all about

Into the night we go to sleep

You and I were meant for keeps

Into the night we go to play

You and I

I really hope you'll always be

So in love with me

I really hope we'll always stay

So attached this way

I really hope you'll always be

So in love with me

I really hope we'll always stay

So attached this way

I really hope you'll always be

So in love with me

I really hope we'll always stay

So attached this way

I really hope you'll always be

So in love with me

I really hope we'll always stay

So attached this way

I really hope that you'll always be here

I really hope that you'll always be near

Take me and like me I'll always be here

I really hope that you'll always be near


 

10 - Every Morning :

My God the years have passed me by

Where was I hiding?

I've been around the world for some time

It's oblivious now

The morning sun is in my eyes

It doesn't hide the lines

It does not bear

The great disguise

Happy birthday baby

Happy birthday

Every morning

Every morning in time

We're doing fine

Every morning

Every morning in time

We're doing fine

I don't remember being young

Was it so much fun?

I don't remember feeling this way

It was not for me

I payed a price

A sacrifice

It was worth it then

My time has come

I now feel young

Begin again

Happy birthday

Every morning

Every morning in time

We're doing fine

Every morning

Every morning in time

We're doing fine


 

11 - Do You Know :

Leaving awhile

Might as well smile

Might as well smile

I will be strong

We'll carry on

And I'll always hold on to my smile

What would you say?

Would you say that it's sad for feeling this way?

What would you do if you were in my shoes?

In my

Do you know what I think?

Do you know what I think about it?

About it

I guess you don't know anything

You don't know anything about it

About it

Do you know what I think?

Do you know what I think about it?

About it

I guess you don't know anything

You don't know anything about it

About it

Dust in my eyes

I realize

That I'm thinking

Of you

I'll take my car

I will go far

I'll be lonely

For you

What would you say?

Would you say that it's sad for feeling this way?

What would you do if you were in my shoes?

In my

Do you know what I think?

Do you know what I think about it?

About it

I guess you don't know anything

You don't know anything about it

About it

Do you know what I think?

Do you know what I think about it?

About it

I guess you don't know anything

You don't know anything about it

About it


 

12 - Carry On :

I didn't understand

the things you're going through

I never understood, I really never knew

Carry on

Carry on

The sun will always shine

Carry on

Carry on

We'll have a glass of wine

Or a cigarette

Take destiny by the hand

And lead it far away

Take it to another land

We will all decay

Carry on

Carry on

The sun will always shine

Carry on

Carry on

We'll have a glass of wine

Or a cigarette


 

13 - Chocolat Brown :

But I tried

And I sighed

You didn't listen to me

I felt that way

Still I try

And I sigh

You wouldn't understand me

I felt that way

But you're so young

And you don't get me now

I feel so guilty

And you are chocolate brown

Chocolate brown

I can't wait

Not too long

I will make it up to you

Chocolate brown

Still I learn

And I learn

There's so much to think about here

So much to lose

But it's just fine

And you don't see it now

Don't make me guilty

Please don't chocolate brown

Chocolate brown

I can't wait

Not too long

I will make it up to you

Chocolate brown

Chocolate brown


 

14 - Salvation (Live in Paris) : Enregistrée en Decembre 1999

To all those people doin' lines,

Don't do it, don't do it.

Inject your soul with liberty,

It's free, it's free.

To all the kids with heroin eyes,

Don't do it, don't do it.

Because it's not not what it seems,

No no it's not not what it seems.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Ah, ah, ah, ah

To all the parents with sleepless nights,

Sleepless nights.

Tie your kids home to their beds,

Clean their heads.

To all the kids with heroin eyes,

Don't do it, don't do it.

Because it's not not what it seems,

No no it's not not what it seems.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Ah, ah, ah, ah


15 - In the Ghetto :

As the snow flies

On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'

A poor little baby child is born

In the ghetto

And his mama cries

'Cause if there's one thing

that she don't need

It's another hungry mouth to feed

In the ghetto

People, don't you understand

The child needs a helping hand

Or he'll grow to be

an angry young man some day

Take a look at you and me,

Are we too blind to see,

Do we simply turn our heads

And look the other way

Well the world turns

And a hungry little boy with a runny nose

Plays in the street as the cold wind blows

 

In the ghetto

And his hunger burns

So he starts to roam the streets at night

and he learns how to steal

And he learns how to fight

In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation

A young man breaks away

He buys a gun, steals a car,

Tries to run, but he don't get far

And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers

'round an angry young man

Face down on the street

with a gun in his hand

In the ghetto

As her young man dies,

On a cold and gray Chicago mornin',

Another little baby child is born

In the ghetto
