Burning Down
Look where you're going with this my friend
You've been running since the age of ten... Yeah
Looking for the winner
Stealing like a sinner
Little girl you're doing it again

Oh... It's just one more day you keep trying hard
In every way
Better watch out now lady or you won't make
It to the crossroads

Reach out for something
Don't let your spirit fade it's a big black sky
And you're too high
You need a warning
The bells are ringing now

Out there living on the run for a while
In the back of your mind lives the scene
Of the crime
Living a lie we both know you and I
We gotta keep our heads above the water

It's just one more day
We keep trying hard in every way
On the highwire
We won't make it to the crossroads

Reaching for something
Don't let the spirit fade
It's a big black sky
And we're too high
This is a warning

The bells are ringing now

Burning down... Down... Down... Down

Going down

Going down... Down... Down... Down... Down

And we can't get much higher... Oh lord

Here we go again my friends

It's just one more day
And we've been running since the age of men
Looking for the winner
Stealing like a sinner

Oh... Reaching for something new
Don't let your spirit fade
It's a big black sky
And you're too high
This is a warning
The bells are ringing now

Reaching for something
Don't let the spirit fade

Burning down to the ground
The whole wide world
Burning down to the ground
 
 
Where the Winds Blow
Now I'll tell you something baby
You sure know how to keep a good man down
I gave you my heart and soul
Kept you warm when the nights were cold
You say you need some time to think it over
But I can't wait no more
Down that long winding road I'll go
Running fast ain't looking back

Follow a clear blue sky
On all the dreams I'm depending
Until the day that I die
I'll be waiting for sunrise

Where the winds blow
That's where I go
Down the river to the sea
Like a blind man
In a strange land
Will I ever see the day

Will I ever see the day... Woman

I keep on pushing harder
Everyday the song
Remains the same

And I never seem to learn
Bet my heart on love
Now I got memories to burn
Everywhere I go there is a trouble
Always double... Baby
Spend my time drinking too much wine

I can't take it no more

Follow a clear blue sky
On all the dreams you're depending
Until the day that I die
I'll be waiting for sunrise

Where the winds blow
That's where I go
Down the river to the sea
Like a blind man
In a strange land
Will I ever see the day

And I'm on the run...

Where the winds blow...
Where the winds blow
That's where I go
Will I ever see the day
Will I ever see the day

Will I ever see the day

I keep on pushing harder baby

Where the winds blow
That's where I go
Down the river to the sea
Like a blind man
In a strange land
Will I ever see the day
Where the winds blow
That's where I go
Down the river to the sea
Like a blind man
In a foreign land
Will I ever see the day

Will I ever see the day... Oh lord... Woman
 
 
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Staring down at the marked place
From high up above
I ring the bells in my tower cells
I dream of something peaceful and worm
A freak of nature I was born
Lonely wind tell how to begin

I'm higher when I'm dancing in the moonlight
I am bound to walk the night
Diving to a wishing well
Where hopes and dreams can break the spell
A place where I can fly towards the sun... Free
Free me

In the name of love
Break down these walls
I can take no more
Made of flush and blood... Oh dear god
Gotta get out of here

There's darkness in my soul
I wanna learn to live
Live to learn

Looking out over Paris
So many things I could cherish
Smell the green be a part of the scene
Children play their laughing
And I'm just another fairytale
Dreams to ashes to dust

I'm higher when I'm dancing in the moonlight
I am bound to walk the night
Diving to a wishing well
Where hopes and dreams can break the spell
A place where I can fly towards the sun... Free
Free me

In the name of love
Break down these walls
I can take no more
Made of flush and blood... Oh dear god
Gotta get out of here

I've been waiting for so long
I'm trying hard not to loose control

Welcome to Notre Dame my friends
Where the pigeons fly again
I'm a ghost in this town
A king without a crown
I'm a firestorm
Crazy... May be
Get ready to face the dawn

Oh you're the beauty and I am the beast
In this cathedral I hold the feast
And I'm in command
This is my land
I'm crazy may be
And it's all that I know

There's darkness in my soul
And I'm trying hard not to loose control
I've been waiting for so long
 
 
Singers at the World's Dawn
Viking
I'm a viking
And my name is victory
I'm a snow man in a snow land
And I sail the seven seas

I know...
You know...
We know...
We've been marching on for so long
Rising... Fighting
Making love and war

Go for power go for freedom
Who holds the key who can open the door
Go for journey go for reason
Look for the answer
Will we ever know?

Like the singers at worlds dawn
We keep singing that same old song
From the east to the west
There's a sion there's a quest... Yeah
For the singers at the world's end

This is mine... This is yours... This is theirs
This is ours... This is cold... This is warm
This is life... And life is for all

Warhead
I'm a warhead
And I could be the end of the world

Like the singers at worlds dawn
We keep singing that song
From the east to the west
There's a sion there's a quest... Yeah
For the singers at the world's end
From the mountains to the sea
We'll be dancing you and me
Go for power go for reason go for freedom
Look for the answer
Will we ever know
Like the singers at worlds dawn
 
 
Mother Love
It was a night in July
Stormy weather for you and I
Caught in the rain
And there was no one to blame
We went separate ways
But I can still see your face
In every crowd
And baby it drives me wild

Never saw the sunshine
Till you turned your lovelight on
I never saw the moon so full before
Till that night you held me tight

Across the ballroom floor
I could see you dancing slow... Baby
You angel you
Now you're the perfect lover... Wife and mother
And I still know your name
Yes I know your game
Yes I know your ways... Woman

Mother of love
I'm under your spell
Driving too fast into the rain
Looking for something
To rescue me
I've been waiting my whole life
Guess I'll always be a restless heart... Baby

Stairing out of the window
Precious time where did you go... Where did you go
All the years passing by
And I can still hear your sigh... Baby

I never ever saw the sunshine
Till you turned your lovelight on
I never saw the moon so full before
Till that night you held me tight

Yes a night in July
Stormy weather for you and I
Caught in the rain
And there was no one to blame
We went separate ways
But I can still see your face
In every crowd
And baby it drives me wild

Mother of love
I'm under your spell
Driving too fast into the rain
Looking for something
To rescue me
I've been waiting my whole life
Guess I'll always be a restless heart

People talk but they just don't know
What it's like to be alone
There's a man out there
Ain't got no home
Hoping Jesus will find him
Wherever he goes
The dark clouds no they won't disappear
The light is gone
Now it's dark everywhere baby...

...People tell him keep the faith
Your heart will tell you
They got no reason to tell him a lie
They don't care if he lives or if he dies
Fire burning in me
Guess we're too blind to see

Mother of love
I'm under your spell
Driving too fast into the rain
Looking for something
To rescue me
I've been waiting my whole life
Guess I'll always be a restless heart
 
 
Center Avenue
In the city of eight million people
Loneliness just couldn't be shared
There I was again in the house of lost regrets
With burned out hypocrates
The incrawd said
They'd be hip till they were dead
They're wore that coolness of theirs with pride
And dignity
Yeah yeah...

If you wanna hear some truth
I'll sit down and talk to you
Down on center avenue
I'll show you that the blues
Just ain't something you loose
Down on center avenue

Sharp dressed opinionated people
Dedicated followers of fashion
With their pointed heads
Buying all the reasons they needed
To live in their storybook downtown dead ends
With fundamental liberties
That wear in majority of one
They were swimming down the drain of freedom
If you ask me I just barely give them a 10% status
In the cool parade but no one ever asked me
So I woke up every morning took a good look around
And when I thought thinks might be okay
I realizad this small town crowd
With little dreams were buying all the time they needed
To find reasons to be yeah...
So listen know look me up sometimes
And bring along some wine

If you wanna hear some truth
I'll sit down and talk to you
Down on center avenue
I'll show you that the blues
Just ain't something you loose
Down on center avenue

And there was nothing that could be done
No... Oh... Oh... Oh.... Oh... Oh...

In the city of eight million people
Loneliness just couldn't be shared
There I was again in the house of lost regrets
With burned out hypocrates
The incrawd always said
They'd be hip till they were dead
They're wore that coolness of theirs with pride
And dignity
So the whole fucking world could see
Sharp dressed opinionated people
Dedicated followers of fashion
With their pointed heads
Buying all the reasons

If you wanna hear some truth
I'll sit down and talk to you
Down on center avenue
I'll show you that the blues
Just ain't something you loose
Down on center avenue
Down on center avenue
Down on center avenue
I'll show you that the blues
Just ain't something you loose
Down on center avenue
 
 
Can't Let Go
Gipsy queen where have you been
The most beautiful thing I have ever seen
It's driving me out of my mind
The thought of you makes me go blind
We met and I can't forget
I'm out of control but I won't let it show
Light as a feather
Wanna fly forever

I have seen so many faces
There has been so many places
So many chases

A fortuneteller told me once
It's what's inside that counts
And not the things I thought I needed... Angel
I call you on the phone from somewhere
Wish that I could be there always in my heart and soul
You're the one I'm dreaming of

I can't let go
You're so far away from me
I must fulfill my destiny
Can't let go
You know it's hard to face the music
And baby it's just something I must do... Yeah
Something I gotta do... Lord
Roll the dice pay the prize
Baby you know I just can't let go
Over and over
The scenes are replayed
These memories just won't fade
Diamonds and pearls couldn't buy you girl
You're a joyride not of this world
You make a special magic
You have it all
Somehow we'll find a way
And I pray every day

A fortuneteller told me once
It's what's inside that counts
And not the things I thought I needed... Angel
I call you on the phone from somewhere
Wish that I could be there always in my heart and soul
You're the one I'm dreaming of
I can't let go
You're so far away from me
I must fulfill my destiny
Can't let go
You know it's hard to face the music
And baby it's just something I must do... Yeah
Something I gotta do... Lord
Roll the dice pay the prize
Baby you know I just can't let go

Light as a feather wanna fly forever
You're so faraway from me... It's my destiny.
