LOVEPRAYER album:



I Hear You Call


'Though you don't call me anymore
I find myself waiting
Be no more letters from you
So what's wrong anticipating
I wanna tell you so
The way I been changin' my life
But if you come back to me
Let water change to wine

Hit it baby .... ooh!
Hit it baby .... ooh!
It's what they call a miracle
I hear you call my name
I hear you call, I hear you call
I hear you call my name

'Though I can't see you no more
I feel your eyes watchin'
Guess I'll try talking to you
It'll be a one way conversation
I wanna rescue my soul
Beg you please find time
If you could come back to me
Let water change to wine

Hit it baby .... ooh !
Hit it baby .... ooh !
It's what they call a miracle
I hear you call my name
I hear you call, I hear you call
I hear you call my name

I been lookin' around for a sign
I'm so blind you were there all the time
Always be there you once said to me
All that I had to do was to believe !

Hit it baby .... ooh!
Hit it baby .... ooh!
It's what they call a miracle
I hear you call my name
I hear you call, I hear you call
I hear you call my name



How Does It Feel The Morning After?

(Written by Gerald/Lynch - by Millie Jackson)


You've given me things that meant a lot
A love I can't undo
You've given me a home and family
Made me feel secure
But all that you give
There's a question you need to answer
How can you give your love to another
Come home and face me the morning after ?

How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new
(Come on tell me babe)
How does it feel the morning after
I lay here all night long waitin' on you - oh Lord

I know I know I know, you must be dyin' inside
'Cause if you tell me you'd be confessing
So you can't apologise
Ooh it hurts me so, to know that I'm the one to suffer
To know I must be second best
'Cause the best has gone to another baby

How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new
(Come on tell me darling)
How does it feel the morning after
After I lay here all night long waitin' on you boy

Does she make you wanna cry
Did you feel as good inside
Was it heaven - or would you rather be mine
Does she make you wanna cry
Did you feel as good inside
Was it heaven or would you rather be mine (ah)

How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new
(Come on tell me darling)
How does it feel the morning after (ah yeah yeah)
After you've given your love to someone new,
someone who, someone who

(Ooh hoo)
(How does it feel the morning after ?)
(Ooh hoo)
(Ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo)
(Yeah, Come on baby)
(Ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo
(How does it feel the morning after ?)
(Ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo)
(Yeah, come on baby)

You wouldn't do that to me would you
You wouldn't walk out on me (no mmmh)



Good Love


No matter where you go, no matter what you do
Your spirit stays with me and my soul stays with you
I remember the time that your mind couldn't change
You wanted some other, thought our lives wouldn't
stay, stay, stay, stay, stay
But with my own two hands,
I'm standing here beggin' for you
Just to say that your

Good love stays
Your good love stays
Your good love stays with me

And as the night comes again and the curtains are drawn
Your mind begins to wander and my heart begins to fall
I lay down and I pray that this torment it will end
Our lives are all upside down - but-my-sweet-dedication-
will-stay-with-you-darling-forever - I love you I do
and I'm beggin' you please to come home - where your

Good love stays
Your good love stays
Your good love stays with me - just say it
Your good love stays
Your good love stays
Your good love stays with me

I've never been so weak, but I've never been so strong
I'm gonna make you happy, cause it's here with me you belong
I know there's been some bad times,
I know together we'e unbeatable, together we can't lose, no
Just say that your ...

Good love stays ...




Your Love Meant Everything


! STILL TO DO - same as live version !

(Oooh) Maybe it's because my heart is made of glass
That I just can't hide no lies
Oh I guess I've been selfish and stupid and blind
To expect him to love my disguise
(Oh) Lord knows how I've tried to reach some kind of compromise
But I know what it's gotta be (mmmh)

Goodbye ah ah ah, goodbye ah ah ah, your love meant everything
That a love can mean (woo mmh hoo)

I have come here to say that we've both gotta walk away
In directions that won't meet again
At first it will hurt, it will empty our hearts
But the passage of time will be kind
(Oh) Please say you understand it's one woman for one man
Well for me, that's how it's gotta be (woo)

Goodbye woah ah ah, goodbye oh ah, your love meant everything
That a love can mean (woo)
Goodbye ah ha ah, good bye bye ah ah, your love meant everything
But it's gotta end (ooh)

Goodbye is what I have to say
Save all your lovin' for a rainy day
Be sure you kiss her before you miss me
Don't mourn the passing of a foolish heart (no woa huh huh)

(Organ solo)

The thought of you (woo ooh) walking the road all on your own
Makes me cry boy, cry boy, see I can't believe our love is dyin'
You say 'is that all there is - will we ever get over this ?'
I don't know, but it's gotta be
(Wooh hoo)
(Ah ah ah ah oh, woah woah woah, woo )
(Hmmmh)

(Thankyou)
(It's really good to be back here)
(It's really good)

Lovin' Come My Way


They build me up and then they let me down
People come my way
It give me joy and then it leave me pain
Lovin' come my way
Build me up and it let me down
Build me up and it let me down
Build me up and it break me down - lovin' you this way

Oh lord, please find a way
To take me to his heart and let me stay -
without hurtin' no-one
Oh lord, please find a way
To take me to his arms and let me sway sway
sway to the rhythm
Oh lord please find a way
To take me to your heart and let me stay -
let me find peace there

You know my thinking and you know it's wrong
But I can't help it no - I'm out of control
If it's a sin I'll sin it
If there's a price for my sin I'll pay it
If it's a sin I'll sin it
If there's a price for my sin I'll pay it
It give me joy and then it leave me pain
Lovin' come my way

Build me up and it let me down
Build me up and it let me down
Build me up and it let me down
Let judgement come my way

I said, I say, if it's a sin I'll sin it
If there's a price for my sin I'll pay it
If it's a sin I'll sin it

If there's a price for my sin I'll pay it
It give me joy and then it leave me pain
Lovin' come my way

I said it build me up and it let me down
Build me up and it let me down
Build me up and it let me down
Lovin' come my way



Light And Shade


Sleepy passion lie so close to me
And contemplate the sky
The moonshine
Reflecting in your eyes
Ooh, this is all that I ask for
That these simple pleasures are lastin' forever
Turn out the light, turn out the light, turn out the light
And let's crystallize in time

Sing a song - it's just your soul laughing
Sing a song - it's just your soul crying (can you hear it)

Let this midnight never be gone
No more searchlights;
travelling on
Holding you tight, tight in my armour
Under my wings love, you'll never be warmer
Ah, then the cruel mornin' comes
All my dreams are gone

Sing a song - it's just your soul laughing sing it
Sing a song - it's just your soul crying

So cruel is the day;
The sunshine,
showing up the cracks in my life
Lighting up the hole in my heart
Hey yeah - please turn out the light, turn out the light



May It Be On This Earth


Oh lover come up close to me
Wipe away the tears that fall so naturally
We're all victims of the seeds we sow
Regret is just the final blow
Oh baby, baby, can it be so long ?
I remember when you made me sing out my freedom song

Rock me baby, rock me side to side
You took me up in your arms
And you told me you were mine
God only knows where time can go
You got a story of your own now

Brother, sister under one great sky
Will we ever be without divide
When our time comes we receive no sign
We hear no warning
Do I surrender to you on that day ?
Do I turn away ?

Rock me baby, rock me side to side
You took me up in your arms
And you told me you were mine
God only knows where time can go
You got a story of your own now - story of your own now

I wish, I wish you were beside me one day
May it be on this earth, or may it be in heaven
May it be on this earth, or may it be in the next world
I don't know, I don't know but I really really really
Want you to be there with me baby - by my side
And may it be on this earth, or may it be in heaven ...



All Across The World


All across the world now
People fight to be heard
Cryin' for attention darlin'
They all want the last last word
Lord, what is the answer
To everybody's prayer
When reason wages war against compassion and despair

Hard times sure worry me
Ain't givin' up no no no, not me
It ain't just money
That makes it hard times - we gotta have some love

We are all so fragile
Everybody's flesh and blood
We're all just children
Broken wings and so much love
Can't you see what we've got
Can't you see we've got a lot
Can't you see the love I loan ya
You can keep it for ever and ever

Hard times sure worry me
Ain't givin' up no no no, not me
It ain't just money
That makes it hard times no
Hard times sure worry me
Ain't givin' up no no no
It ain't just money
That makes it hard times no no no

Well to one man, he's a sinner
To the other he's seen the light
To one man he's a sinnin' man
To the other he's gone and seen the light

I'm warning you, I'm warning you yeah
We've gotta have some solution
Gotta have some real reaction
I'm warning you, I'm calling you all over here
I wanna say something to you
I'm warning you about hard times.

Hard times sure worry me
Ain't givin' up no no no not me
It ain't just money
That makes it hard times
Hard times sure worry me
Ain't givin' up no no no not me
It ain't just money that makes it hard times
And these times sure worry me
Ain't givin' up no no no not me
It ain't just lack of money
That makes these times so hard no no no no.

Hard times
Hard times are times without love
Hard times
Let's make 'em good times
Let's make 'em real good times
Good good times
Good time



I Walk Alone


I walk alone, I walk alone although the coast is long
Around me stretch the waters knowing and unknown
The shimmering sea, the wind's wild song
Where does love go when the life you loved is gone ?
I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone, although my light is blown
A little voice inside me says just carry on
I walk alone only knowing the unknown
All my longing, there's nowhere I belong
But beneath the sea, where my love has been thrown
I wish you peace and joy - a prayer from me

I walk alone, I walk alone although the coast is long
Surrounded by the skies of knowing and unknown
Diffusing the sunshine, the clouds of the storm
Where does love go when the life you loved is gone ?
How can God reclaim the life of one so young ?
How can God destroy a life that's done no wrong ?
I walk alone
I walk alone, I walk alone
There's no holding your hand
Now I'm walking alone, walking alone
And my life will be long
I walk alone, I walk alone
With the beat of the drum
Now I'm walking alone, walking alone
And I'm burning those bridges behind behind behind me
I walk alone, I walk alone
There's no holding your hand
Now I'm walking alone, walking alone
And I'm burning those bridges behind me
We'll kiss again when breath is gone
But now I walk alone


* Extra 2 tracks on CD that are not on the LP :-



Better Take Care


Just take a look around you
Look at all the beauty that you see
And does it make no difference to you
That we are giving it all, we are throwing it all away

Better take care of what you got
Gotta keep holding on for dear life
Better take care of what you got
Gotta keep holding on for dear life

Well who am I to question
Just a solitary soul against the world
Or would it make a difference - maybe.
That we are giving it all, we are throwing it all away.

Better take care of what you got
Gotta keep holding on for dear life
Better take care of what you got
Gotta keep holding on for dear life - good living

Believe, just give it one more chance and life will show you
The science of the leaves that fall around you
And don't abuse the very breath inside of you

My heart - I would give everything
My heart - I would be left with nothing
My heart - I would give everything
My heart - I would be left with nothing
My heart, my heart, my heart Yeah.
My heart, my heart, my heart Yeah.

Better take care, gotta keep it, holding on
Better take care, gotta keep it, gotta keep holding on



Further From The Truth


You smile like a menace
Who's glad to be free
Free of a conscience
Make things so easy
You shouldn't do that
It's crazy to play that
Couldn't be further from the truth

You've banished your angel
He's not coming back
There's a hole where your heart was
It's darker than black
The questions grow bigger
The answers get smaller
Couldn't be further from the truth

You're cryin' in your sleep
And when you wake you'll never know
You say the end justifies the means
You'd even try to sell the world

If God acts in goodness
He'd trample you down
Lying through your teeth
You'd be lying on the ground
You have no compassion
Just one single obsession
Couldn't be further from the truth
Couldn't be further from the truth



A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER album:

Crash Into The Ocean


Everything's coming your way
If you could only see it
You're like a blind girl walking through paradise
You can't see the light for the shadow

You've got to learn to love yourself
See yourself as others do
You've got to learn you're innocent
Of all the crimes you didn't do

When you tumble down the mountain
And you crash into the ocean
Is there going to be a ship to take you home ?

I don't understand how you can hate yourself
When you're so goddamn near perfect
You do a good job to convince yourself
That you're worthless, it's just not worth it

When people say you're beautiful
You dismiss it as cosmetic
When people fall in love with you
You tell them they're pathetic

When you tumble down the mountain
And you crash into the ocean
Is there going to be a ship to take you home ?

Come on now baby baby
You've got to set yourself free
Come on now it's easy easy

When you tumble down the mountain
And you crash into the ocean
Is there going to be a ship to take you home ?



I Don't Want To Hurry


We sow the seed and hope that it will grow
We water it and wait for leaves to show
And roots begin to hug the earth below
You want everything you want it now
You want to see the day before the dawn
You want to hold the babe before it's born

But I ...
I don't want to hurry
I don't want to hurry
This sweet love of mine
No I'll be there tomorrow
And everyday will follow
The sweet love of my life

And given time the seed becomes a tree
It's strong enough to stand the rain and wind
It's big enough to shelter you and me
You want everything you want it now
You want to have the day before the dawn
You want to learn to run before you crawl

But I ...
I don't want to hurry
I don't want to hurry
This sweet love of mine
No I'll be there tomorrow
And everyday will follow
The sweet love of my life

Can't we take our time
Can't we wait and see
I tell it to your heart babe
Just go slow

But I ...
I don't want to hurry
I don't want to hurry
This sweet love of mine
No I'll be there tomorrow
And everyday will follow
The sweet love of my life

We sow the seed and hope that it will grow
We water it and wait for leaves to show
And roots begin to hug the earth below



Only You

Are you waiting for someone
To see you right to pull you through
To make you strong
Are you looking for a friend
To make you happy to make you whole
You've got to do it, you've got to do it on your own

I'm going to tell you something that you don't want to hear now
Ah baby baby baby

Only you can make it happen
Only you can see it through
Only you can make it happen
Only you

Who's going to show you home
When you are lost and afraid
Are you so alone ?
Who's going to be the one
To take control of your life
You've got to do it, you've got to do it on your own

I'm going to tell you something that you don't want to hear now
Ah baby baby baby
Listen to me baby

Only you can make it happen
Only you can see it through
Only you can make it happen
Only you only you

Didn't I warn you right from the start
Didn't I tell you we're all apart
Maybe you think I got it wrong
I'm sorry babe you're on your own

Only you can make it happen
Only you can see it through
Only you can make it happen
Only you only you

You've got to be strong
You're on your own now baby
You've got to celebrate it
You're on your own now baby
Just celebrate it
You've got the power ......



Gotta Give Up

(Written by Morrison/Ralphes/George)


I should have warned you right from the start
I should have told you you'd be captive in my heart
Maybe I didn't make myself too clear
Maybe we were both just a little insincere
Now it's too late we are drowning in each other's arms

Gotta give up gotta give in to my love
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love
Gotta give up the things you have
Make me happy make me glad yeah
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love

We could have stopped it when it began
We could have carried on with what we had
Why do we pretend everything is fine ?
Why am I drinking another glass of wine ?
Is it over now or is it just the very start ?
Is it over angel ?

Gotta give up gotta give in to my love
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love
Gotta give up the things you have
Make me happy make me glad yeah
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love

Now it's too late we are drowning in each other's arms
Now it's too late angel

Gotta give up gotta give in to my love
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love
Gotta give up the things you have
Make me happy make me glad yeah
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love

Give up the life you lead
I'm the only thing you need
Gotta give up gotta give in to my love



Spirit Of The Man


The Sun is setting on this girl
Naked and cold
Waiting for a voice to comfort her
Keep her warm
She sees the light inviting
She just wants to dive right in
She could lose herself forever
She could lose herself forever
She could lose herself in this

But he would never let her down
He can sense her fear of letting go
Never hurt her now, never hurt her now
It's the spirit of a man
It's the touch of a human hand
It's their faith in each other
It's their faith

When they were young and danced 'till dawn
Never did part
Seeing themselves reflected
In each others hearts
She sees the light inviting
She just wants to dive right in
We could lose ourselves together she says
We could lose ourselves forever she says
We could lose ourselves in this
He says "Yes"

But I would never let you down
I can sense your fear of letting go
Never hurt you now, never hurt you now
I would never let you down
I can sense your fear of letting go
Never hurt you now, never hurt you now

It's the spirit of a man
It's the touch of a human hand
It's their faith in each other
It's their faith

It's the spirit of a man
It's a human hand
It's the spirit of a man
It's a human hand
Reaching out for each other

Fly fly fly spirit fly



Keep Me In Mind


It's been a long time coming
But I know it's for the best
Don't say a word now
It wasn't a chance encounter
Every moment has its place
Don't say a word now

Keep me in mind when you are out there
Dancing on your own
Keep me in mind when you are laughing at the world
Keep me in mind when all your family and friends
Don't stop and listen to the one who had it all

No medicine needed
Just a tiny bit of peace
Don't say a word now
While you wrapped your fears around me
Did I drown you in my own
Don't say a word now
Just keep it closed
Don't say a word now

Keep me in mind when you are out there
Dancing on your own
Keep me in mind when you are laughing at the world
Keep me in mind when all your family and friends
Don't stop and listen to the one who had it all

Don't say a word now (just keep it closed)
Don't say a word now (just let it go)
Don't say a word now

Keep me in mind when you are out there
Dancing on your own
Keep me in mind when you are laughing at the world
Keep me in mind when all your family and friends
Don't stop and listen to the one who had it all

You had it all
Keep me in mind



Watching Over Me

(Written by Morrison/Ralphes/Schmieder/Witzel)


I'm looking at your photograph
My future in your eyes
You're younger then than I am now
Your destiny was mine
But now you're gone forever
Though your spirit is alive
Because I love you

I live in you
You live in me
See love don't lose its energy
As long as I can live and dream
Our spirits will collide you see
Although we cannot


Our precious love will last forever
Yes it will

Oh your love pours down like a shining sun
And your voice rings out in the afternoon
I can feel you all around
Don't have to see you to believe

That you'll be watching over me

When I'm in a room of fragrant flowers
I know you have it in your power
To be there standing next to me
Your presence is no mystery
'Cause I believe although you're gone
Your energy lives on and on forever

Oh your love pours down like a shining sun
And your voice rings out in the afternoon
I can feel you all around
Don't have to see you to believe

That you'll be watching over me
The world is yours as well as mine
And always 'til the end of time
Don't have to see you to believe
That you'll be watching over me



Ain't That Just The Way


If we do what is done to us
We're victims all the same
Might be good might be bad
Might be black might be white
Fate picks out a name
The hated will be haters
The loved will keep on loving
The cheated will be cheaters
The blessed will give their blessing

It's just the way
Ain't that just the way
Ain't that just the way

It's the survival of the fittest
Survival of the strong
It's a world where money makes you right
But needing it is wrong
The strong will be acquitted
And the weak are made to pay
For the sins of those oppressing them
But nothing ever changed

It's just the way
Ain't that just the way
Ain't that just the way

So we do as would be done to us
We're all victims all the same
Sometimes we're losers sometimes we win
Fate picks out a name

It's just the way
Ain't that just the way
Ain't that just the way



Open Up The Skies


By the firelight we talk like two little children
Everything is like it used to be
Oh darling when I see in your eyes the love of one
The love that once was fiery like a dream
Doesn't seem to make no difference now
Doesn't seem to make no sense somehow

Oh tell me tell me tell me what should I do
Open up the skies and let me in
And it's so beautiful and it's so wonderful
I feel like stars in the sky
I'm out of space, with your love

And I, I feel that the sun is shining
And the love that we feel is something that is so unique
To you and me
And the love we share is a holy prayer
From a human plane and it's very special indeed
Doesn't seem to make no difference now
Doesn't seem to make no sense somehow

Oh baby baby baby what should I do
Open up the skies and let me in
And it's so beautiful and it's so wonderful
I feel like stars in the sky
I'm out of space

It can snow and freeze for all I care
Because however cold
Inside I'm warm with you

I want you to be there like two fish
Like two dolphins in the sea
Like two hearts
Like, like I'm dreaming of you
Like I'm flying, flying with you
And it's so beautiful (to be here again)
And it's so wonderful (and to breathe again)

What's that lovin' doing under cover
What's that lovin' doing under cover



Inviting My Soul


Don't want to be older than I look
Ain't going to pretend I'm someone I'm not
I'm going to be proud of who I am
See I am 27 years old
I know I've got a long long long way to go

So I try to sing to myself
I'm inviting my soul to sing a song with me
I try to sing to myself
I'm inviting my soul to try try try and sing along with me

Ain't going to seek pleasure without love
Ain't going to be lonesome on my own
I've got to be patient with my life
May be when I'm 37 years old
My heart my heart my heart
Might finally find somebody home

So I try to sing to myself
I'm inviting my soul to sing a song with me
I try to sing to myself
I'm inviting my soul to try try try and sing along with me

Hand in hand from holding myself
I'm taking care I am embracing myself
I walk alone but I encourage my soul
To walk along with me

Try try try to walk along with me



Life Don't Let Me Down


Carefully we tread and carefully we go
We been taught, keep the balance
Hardest lesson ever known
Up and down they go the scales of life
Back and to, light and shadow
Crying laughter side by side
It's just the way we are (mmh I know)
It's just the way it goes (mmh I know)
It's just the way of life (mmh I know)
It's just the ebb and flow (mmh I know)

Don't let me down don't let me down
Don't let me down again
Life don't let me down

Opened up my heart too many times
Disappointment weighs it down
I want to stay in love with someone
Please don't let me down don't even try
Life is one divine confusion
I always seem to change my mind
It's just the way we are (mmh I know)
It's just the way it goes (mmh I know)
It's just the way of life (mmh I know)
It's just the ebb and flow (mmh I know)

Don't let me down don't let me down
Don't let me down again
Life don't let me down

You say don't let me down again
I can't help it sometimes
You say don't let me down again
And I say I can't help it sometimes
The way I feel is always real
But things don't last they always pass
The seasons of the heart must change
The summer breeze the hurricane

Too fast slow down
Don't let me down



Be Together

(Written by Morrison/Ralphes/Schmeider/Witzel)


It ain't natural to live the way we are
So lonely both of us, won't listen to our hearts
What have we got left to lose
I can't see while we live apart
What we're both trying to prove
I believe we got a chance
If you believe it too
Come on now and take my hand
So we can see it through because.

We can't live like this no more
We can't live like this way any more
We can't live like this no more
We can't live like this way any more
If there's one thing we got to do
It's be together now

Alright so you got your friends, and I got mine
It doesn't really matter if they won't see eye to eye
We got our differences I know
I want to take things real fast
You want to take them slow
But I don't want to spend my life
Just waiting for a time
I want you to take my hand
And say what's on your mind because ......

We can't live like this no more
We can't live like this way any more
We can't live like this no more
We can't live like this way any more
If there's one thing we got to do
It's be together now

What's the point in hiding
All these feelings deep inside
We'd have everything if we
Could be together, be together, be together
Be together now
Let's be together now (can't live like this no more)
Be together now (can't live like this)
Let's be together now

How Does It Feel The Morning After (Live)

(Written by Gerald/Lynch - by Millie Jackson)
You've given me things that meant a lot
A love I can't undo
You've given me a home and family
Made me feel secure
But all that you give
There's a question you need to answer
How can you give your love to another
Come home and face me the morning after ?

How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new
(Come on tell me babe)
How does it feel the morning after
I lay here all night long waitin' on you - oh Lord

I know I know I know oh, you must be dyin' inside
'Cause if you tell me you'd be confessing
So you can't apologise
Ooh ooh it hurts me so, to know that I'm the one to suffer
To know I must be second best
'Cause the best has gone to another baby

How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new
(Come on tell me babe)
How does it feel the morning after
I lay here all night long on waitin' on you boy
Alright!

(Guitar/Piano solo)

Does she make you wanna cry
Did you feel as good inside
Was it heaven - or would you rather be mine
Does she make you wanna cry
Did you feel as good inside
Was it heaven or would you rather be mine (ah)

How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new
(Come on tell me darling)
How does it feel the morning after
After you've given your love to someone new,
someone who, someone who

(Ooh hoo)
(How does it feel the morning after ?)
(Ooh hoo ooh)
(Ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh hoo, ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo, yeah
(On my baby)
(Ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo ooh, ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo, yeah
(On my baby)

You wouldn't do that to me would you
You wouldn't walk out on me (no wooh mmmh yeah)

(Thankyou)
(Good Evening)
(We're Bliss)

Ride Me High


Oh~ ah~

Hey~ oo-oo

Flow down where you're feeling
Sexy things you do
Baby, baby, baby
Let me talk to you
I just want to whisper
In your sexy ear
Tell you that I love you
Take away your fear
Destroy your inhibition
And ride it high today
Low down, slow down, keep it low down
In that funky way

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high some more

(organ solo)

The way you move your body
It's a crying shame
I won't tell nobody
If you will do the same
If you live to borrow
There's one thing is for sure
The more you get, the more you got
The more you 'want' some more

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high some more

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high some more

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high ~ some ~ more ~

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high some more

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high some more

High, high, high
How high can you go ?
Ride me high this morning
Ride me high some more

Ride me high some more
Ride me high some more
Ride me high some more
Ride me high
Ride me high
Ride me high
Ride me high
Ride me high
Ride me
Ride me
Ride me
Ride me
Ride me

Wow

Something That Is Gone

(Written by M. Scott)


Something that is gone
Something that is gone-on-on-on
Something that I had just yesterday
But where I must've laid it - I really couldn't say
Something that was right, but now it's wrong
Something - that is gone

Something that I lost
Something that I l-lost-ah
Something that I cradled in my hand
Something rather special
That pertained to all my plans
I'm left here wondering what on earth it was
Something - that I lost

Something that I miss
Something that I miss-iss-ah
I looked all around my room, but it's not here
I cannot sing a song of permanence
So swiftly disappear
Something is the cause - of all of this
Something - that I miss



Sweet Lovin' Child


Mmmh, mmmh, mmmh, mmmh

Take away everything
You've taken the best
You've taken most of me,
So why not take the rest ?
Just like a thief you stole my heart,
The only living precious part of me

Woah Why did I let you treat me so
Never really what went on behind
My sweet little song
Woah woah
Why did I let you
Never really knew what went on
Behind the eyes of your
Sweet lovin' child

Make away with everything
You've made a pretty mess
Make up the bed for me
It's all - that I've got left
You might as well leave me for dead
Just a mistake that you misread
About a little fool - ool
Woah woah

Why did I let you treat me so
Never really knew what went on
Behind my sweet little song
Woah woah
Why did I let you treat me so
Never really knew what went on
Behind the eyes of your
Sweet lovin' child
Sweet lovin' child
Sweet lovin' child
Sweet lovin' child
I'm your sweet lovin' child
Woah ahh
Ooh yeah ah
Ooh yeah ah
Wooh
Yeah Ah ah ah
Woh ah ah ha
Ah ah ah yeah ah
Ooh oh oh oh

(ad lib )...

(whistle tune)

Sweet lovin', sweet lovin' child
Sweet lovin', sweet lovin', sweet lovin' ah yeah


This Time I'm Gone For Good

I should've stayed gone
When I left before~
Oh you do me wrong - when we're together
But I keep ~ coming back for more
But when I leave this town
Oh Lord
Make sure it's understood
This time ~ I'm going for good
But any times I've left you

But I just ~ couldn't stay away ~ no
Oh thank God for the strength ~ that he gave to me
To leave home - and still be strong
'coz when I leave ~ this town
Oh Lord
Make sure it's understood
This time ~ I'm going for good yeah

It's been so warm ~ outside - ah
But for me, but for me
There's been no sunshine ~
Oh it's - so hard ~ for me - to leave you

But I've fi-nal-ly made up my mind
When I leave ~ this town
Oh Lord
Make sure it's understood
This time ~ I'm going for good - yeah

(I just want you to ?
Do you hear what I'm saying?)

When I leave this town
Oh lord



Waited Too Long

(Written by Morrison/Ralphes/Askew)


Don't take it personally no
Well I often go like some crazy butterfly
Don't take it on yourself to judge, or justify me
No - believe me when I say when
what is does inside

Ooh have I waited too long ah ah
Have I - waited too long ah a ha
Tell me - have I waited too long
To see how I love you
How my greedy heart will hunger for you
When you're gone

You say, you say, you say my honest stick ??
You say, you say, you say it will be the ruin of me
I know it's true, I know I'm out of luck
But ooh, to deceive I need to have a stronger man this time baby

Ooh - have I waited too long ah
Have I - waited too long, ah a ha
Tell me - have I - waited too long
To see how I love you yeah
How my greedy heart will hunger for you
When you're gone

I know it's late
I know you're tired
I can see by your eyes
There's no desire
It's easier to criticise me
You've got the whole damn world on your side
I'm sorry - that wasn't necessary

I know how feelings can be estimated
You see how things get over-complicated
My greedy heart will hunger for you
At times you put the very breath back in my body, baby

Ooh - have I - waited too long, ah
Have I - waited too long, oh ah ha
Tell me - have I - waited too long
To say how I love you
Love you, love you
Let it love you baby

Ooh - have I - waited too long, oh ah
Have I waited too long, oh
Have I waited too long, oh
Tell me - have I waited too long
To say how I love you
To love you, love you, love you yeah

I know you're innocent, I know 'm guilty yeah
You can put me in the witness box
Do anything - sentence me

You can open your way
But darling
...
But don't go away
Na na



War Generation

(Written by Morrison/Ralphes/Vera Brittain)

(like Bad by U2)

In the cities and hamlets
Where we were born
Little towns behind the vale of time
I close as nearer marked our calous dawn
With jingles of a military rhyme

But in that song we heard no warning child
We're never visualised in our's so sweet and belign
There would be - a threat and it was
In our adventurous feet were stuck in me

Woo ha, woo ha
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm

So we began, amid the echoes blown
Across our childhood from an early war, an early war oh
Too down, too soon forgotten, to dethrone woah ha
Those dreams of happiness - we felt secure
While in and out of fears outside the door
Watchin' a generation grow to flower
The fate that held our youth
Before its power

Wait till its our
The fate that held our youth
Before its power ah

Wait till its our

ooh ow ow,
ooh ooh ooh hoo ...
ooh ooh ooh hoo ...
ooh ooh ooh hoo ...
ooh ooh ooh hoo ...
(ad lib)

The echo, the echo of your smile
Across my childhood memory



Your Love Meant Everything (Live)


(Oooh) Maybe it's because my heart is made of glass
That I just can't hide no lies
Oh I guess I've been selfish and stupid and blind
To expect him to love my disguise
(Oh) Lord knows how I've tried to reach some kind of compromise
But I know what it's gotta be (mmmh)

Goodbye ah ah ah, goodbye ah ah ah, your love meant everything
That a love can mean (woo mmh hoo)

I have come here to say that we've both gotta walk away
In directions that won't meet again
At first it will hurt, it will empty our hearts
But the passage of time will be kind
(Oh) Please say you understand it's one woman for one man
Well for me, that's how it's gotta be (woo)

Goodbye woah ah ah, goodbye oh ah, your love meant everything
That a love can mean (woo)
Goodbye ah ha ah, good bye bye ah ah, your love meant everything
But it's gotta end (ooh)

Goodbye is what I have to say
Save all your lovin' for a rainy day
Be sure you kiss her before you miss me
Don't mourn the passing of a foolish heart (no woa huh huh)

(Organ solo)

The thought of you (woo ooh) walking the road all on your own
Makes me cry boy, cry boy, see I can't believe our love is dyin'
You say 'is that all there is - will we ever get over this ?'
I don't know, but it's gotta be
(Wooh hoo)
(Ah ah ah ah oh, woah woah woah, woo )
(Hmmmh)

(Thankyou)
(It's really good to be back here)
(It's really good)
