Sunday Bloody Sunday (4:38) :

Yes...

I can't believe the news today

Oh, I can't close my eyes

And make it go away

How long...

How long must we sing this song?

How long? How long...

'cause tonight...we can be as one

Tonight...

Broken bottles under children's feet

Bodies strewn across the dead end street

But I won't heed the battle call

It puts my back up

Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun

There's many lost, but tell me who has won

The trench is dug within our hearts

And mothers, children, brothers, sisters

Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long...

How long must we sing this song?

How long? How long...

'cause tonight...we can be as one

Tonight...tonight...

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes

Wipe your tears away

Oh, wipe your tears away

Oh, wipe your tears away

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it's true we are immune

When fact is fiction and TV reality

And today the millions cry

We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun

To claim the victory Jesus won

On...

Sunday Bloody Sunday

Sunday Bloody Sunday...

 


  

Seconds (3:24) :

Takes a second to say goodbye

Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh

It takes a second to say goodbye

Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh, say bye bye...

Where you going to now...

Lightning flashes across the sky

East to west, do or die

Like a thief in the night

See the world by candlelight.

Fall, rise and...Fall, rise and...

In an apartment on Time Square

You can assemble them anywhere

Held to ransom, hell to pay

A revolution everyday

USSR, GDR, London, New York, Peking

It's the puppets, It's the puppets

Who pull the strings

Fall, rise and...Fall, rise and...

Say goodbye, say goodbye

Say goodbye, say goodbye

Say goodbye

It takes a second to say goodbye

Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh

Push the button and pull the plug

Say goodbye, oh, oh, oh

Fall, rise and...Fall, rise and...

And they're doing the atomic bomb

Do they know where the dance comes from

Yes they're doing the atomic bomb

They want you to sing along

Say goodbye, say goodbye

Say goodbye

Say goodbye.

 


 

New Year's Day (5:38) :

Yeah...

All is quiet on New Year's Day

A world in white gets underway

I want to be with you

Be with you night and day

Nothing changes on New Year's Day

On New Year's Day

I will be with you again

I will be with you again

Under a blood red sky

A crowd has gathered in black and white

Arms entwined, the chosen few

The newspapers says, says

Say it's true it's true...

And we can break through

Though torn in two

We can be one

I...I will begin again

I...I will begin again

Oh...

Maybe the time is right

Oh...maybe tonight...

I will be with you again

I will be with you again

And so we're told this is the golden age

And gold is the reason for the wars we wage

Though I want to be with you

Be with you night and day

Nothing changes

On New Year's Day

On New Year's Day

 


 

Like a Song (4:48) :

Like a song I have to sing

I sing it for you

Like the words I have to bring

I bring it for you

And in leather, lace, and chains

We stake our claim

Revolution once again

No I won't...

I won't wear it on my sleeve

I can see through this expression

And you know I don't believe

Too young to be told

Exactly who are you

Tonight

Tomorrow's

Too late

And we love to wear a badge, a uniform

And we love to fly a flag

But I won't...let others live in hell

As we divide against each other

And we fight amongst ourselves

Too set in our ways to try to rearrange

Too right to be wrong, in this rebel song

Let the bells ring out

Let the bells ring out

Is there nothing left

Is there, is there nothing

Is there nothing left

Is honesty what you want

A generation without name, ripped and torn

Nothing to lose, nothing to gain

Nothing at all

And if you can't help yourself

Well take a look around you

When others need your time

You say it's time to go...it's your time

Angry words won't stop the fight

Two wrongs won't make it right

A new heart is what I need

Oh God, make it bleed

Is there nothing left...

 


 

Drowning Man (4:12) :

Take my hand

You know I'll be there

If you can

I'll cross the sky for your love

For I have promised

Oh, to be with you tonight

And for the time that will come

Take my hand

You know I'll be there

If you can

I'll cross the sky for your love

And I understand

These winds and tides

This change of times

Won't drag you away

Hold on, and hold on tightly

Hold on, and don't let go

Of my love

The storms will pass (the storm will pass)

It won't be long now (it won't be long now)

His love will last

His love will last...forever

Take my hand

You know I'll be there

If you can

I'll cross the sky for your love

Give you what I hold dear

Hold on, hold on tightly

Hold on, hold on tightly

Rise up, rise up

With wings like eagles

You run, you run

You run and not grow weary

(take my hand, take my hand)

Hold on, and hold on tightly

Hold on, hold on tightly

To this love...last forever

To this love...last forever

Take my hand

Take my hand...

 


 

The Refugee (3:40) :

Woah, woah...

She's the refugee.

I see your face

I see you staring back at me

Woah, woah...

She's the refugee

Her mama say one day she's gonna

Live in America

In the morning

She is waiting

Waiting for the ship to sail

Sail away

Woah, woah...

Her papa go to war

He gonna fight

But he don't know what for

Woah, woah...

Her papa go to war

Her mama say one day he's gonna

Come back from far away

Help me

How can you help me

In the evening

She is waiting

Waiting for her man to come

And take her by her hand

And take her to this promise land

Woah, woah...

She's a pretty face

But at the wrong time

In the wrong place

Woah, woah...

She's a pretty face

Her mama say one day she's gonna

Live in America

Yeah, America

Woah, woah...

She's a refugee

She's coming back, she's coming

Keep you company

Woah, woah...

She's a refugee

Her mama say one day she's gonna

Live in America

 


 

Two Hearts Beat as One (4:01) :

I don't know

I don't know which side I'm on

I don't know my right from left

Or my right from wrong

Say I'm a fool

You say I'm nothing

But if I'm a fool for you

Oh, that's something

Two hearts beat as one

Two hearts beat as one

Two hearts...

I can't stop the dance

Honey, this is my last chance

I said, can't stop the dance

Maybe this is my last chance

Two hearts beat as one

Two hearts beat as one

Two hearts...

They beat on black, beat on white

Beat on everything don't get it right

Beat on you, beat on me, beat on love

I don't know

How to say what's got to be said

I don't know if it's black or white

There's others see it red

I don't get the answers right

I leave that to you

Is this love out of fashion

Or is it the time of year

Are these words distraction

To the words you want to hear

Two hearts beat as one

Two hearts beat as one

I try to spit it out

I try to explain

The way I feel

Oh, yeah

Two hearts

I can't stop the dance

Maybe this is my last chance

I said I can't stop the dance

Maybe this is my last chance

I said don't stop the dance

Maybe this is my last chance

I said I can't stop the dance

Maybe this is our last chance

I said don't stop the dance

Maybe this is our last chance

 


 

Red Light (4:09) :

I talk to you

You walk away

You're still on the down beat

You say you don't want my help

But you can't escape

If your running from yourself

I give you my love

I give you my love

Give you my love

Still you walk away

It's your own late show

As you jump to the street below

But where can you go

To leave yourself behind

Alone in the spotlight

Of this, your own tragedy

I give you my love, love, love

Love, love, love, love, love, love...

In the heart in the heart

In the heart of the city

Heart in the heart in

The heart of the city

Oh, love...

I pour my love out for you

And I'll bring you through

See your not alone

I give you my love, give you my love

Give you my love, give you my love

Give you my love, give you my love

Give you my love, give you my love

Give you my love, love, love

Love, love, love, love, love...

 


 

Surrender (6:01) :

Oh, the city's alight

With lovers and lies

Bright blue eyes

Oh, the city is bright

It's brighter than day tonight

Surrender, Surrender

Surrender, Surrender

Sadie said she couldn't work out

What it was all about

And so she let go

Now Sadie's on the street

And the people she meets you know

She tried to be a good girl and a good wife

Raise a good family

Lead a good life

It's not good enough

She got herself up on the 48th floor

Gotta find out

Find out what she's living for

Surrender, Surrender

Surrender, Surrender

Tonight...

Oh, the city's afire

A passionate flame

It knows me by name

Oh, the city's desire

To take me for more and more

It's in the street, getting under my feet

It's in the air, it's everywhere

My love for you

It's in the things I do and say

If I wanna live I gotta

Die to myself someday

Papa sing my sing my sing my song

Papa sing my sing my sing my song...

 


40 (2:35) :

I waited patiently for the Lord

He inclined and heard my cry

He brought me up out of the pit

Out of the miry clay

I will sing, sing a new song

I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song?

How long to sing this song?

How long...how long...how long...

How long...to sing this song

He set my feet upon a rock

And made my footsteps firm

Many will see

Many will see and fear

I will sing, sing a new song

I will sing, sing a new song

I will sing, sing a new song

I will sing, sing a new song

How long to sing this song?

How long to sing this song?

How long...how long...how long...

How long...to sing this song
