Hello Hello Hello Hello, hello, hello Can anybody hear me? Can you see the warning signs are burning? There’s a lesson no one’s learning Hello, hello, hello They’re listenin’ on the phone lines Does anybody mind them checkin’ in? All they wanna know is where you’ve been Can you remember where you’ve been? It’s not what you did It’s not what you did It’s what you didn’t do Didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do yet Come on, come on, come on You can’t put out the fire So you just retire to your bed-room And put on your favourite Dylan costume Come on, come on, come on You’re holding up a peace sign But will that be enough to turn the high-tide When there’s a battle ragin’ outside Are you on the inside? It’s not what you did It’s not what you did It’s what you didn’t do Didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do yet It’s not what you did It’s not what you did It’s what you didn’t do Didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do, didn’t do yet We got a lot of anger We got a lot of fear Who will do the fighting when they’re no more volunteers? Will you be the one? The One, Ohhh!!!

One Step Back and Two Steps Forward Nice try, we did it again Started a fire and somebody put out the flame Why, why, it’s always the same You’re out in the sun, then here comes the rain It’s happenin’ again But hey, it’s not too late It’s not too late to start all over again You take one step back and two steps forward Don’t wait, don’t hesitate Life is time and you’ve got the clock that’s tickin’ Stop playin’ stupid game Trying to push you, pushing you outta the way But not today, oh But hey, it’s not too late It’s not too late to start all over again You take one step back and two steps forward But hey, don’t you wait Don’t you wait start all over again You take one step back and two steps forward Time, sometimes disappears You’re paralyzed with fear And you feel like you’re the only one alive No one comes around Your life is broken down And it’s up to you to fix it, here and now But hey, it’s not too late It’s not too late to start all over again You take one step back and two steps forward But hey, don’t you wait Don’t you wait to start all over again You take one step back and two steps forward

You and Me Tonight The curtain falls the lights are shining down on you The speed of sound will blow away your mind Time could ever take away What we’re holding now I can see the twinkling stars in your eyes And both your hands are reaching to the sky This moment is forever And time is standing still Tonight, the feeling’s right We’ll keep it alive Till the morning light Stick with me all night Only you and me, you and me tonight How can a song play on and stay so close to you Hold on tight and never let it go I feel I’ve known you all my life Though we’ve never met before Tonight, all the feeling’s right We’ll keep it alive Till the morning light Stick with me all night Only you and me, you and me tonight Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight You and me tonight Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight The whole world’s turning The night keeps on burning And we’ll keep on dreamin’ out loud, yeah! Tonight, all the feeling’s right We’ll keep it alive Till the morning light Stick with me all night Only you and me, you and me tonight Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight You and me tonight Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight You and me tonight

Love Ain’t A Four Letter Word Money can’t buy it, the price is too high It will cost you every beat of your heart if you try You’re pickin’ up the pieces and ask yourself why How can it be? Love ain’t a four letter word No it’s never meant to be that easy Love ain’t a four letter word Not for you and not for me We all know the feeling, we know what it means Can’t find it in a book, or in a magazine That magical moment, your eyes touchin’ mine Goin’ to a place, somewhere in time And now I see, yeah Love ain’t a four letter word No it’s never meant to be that easy Love ain’t a four letter word Not for you not for me Love ain’t a word To describe this feeling Love ain’t a word La, la, la ahhh! Love ain’t a four letter word Not what you expect it to be, to be To explain what has happened to you and me Love ain’t a four letter Love ain’t a four letter Love ain’t a four letter word No use in tryin’ to explain it, no, no Love ain’t a four letter word Love ain’t a four letter word No use in tryin` to fake it, no, no No it’s more than you are seeing

More than I can be No, I’ll never ask you to read my mind And what you think is wrong for me might just be right So shut up and go, the answer is no Don’t pin no ribbons on me I don’t need your OK or an invitation to your party You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be You want me to change my point of view, but that ain’t me You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be Just leave me alone, I’m keeping it real, real for me All in all the long haul will end up last Riding on a shooting star sounds crazy cool, but ends too fast And then you’re gone, what went wrong in your plastic world Don’t wanna hear the sound of the same old songs you played before You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be You want me to change my point of view, but that’s not me You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be Just leave me alone, I’m keeping it real, real for me Why try to read between the lines They’re just words that you couldn’t find Look in the mirror and see just who you are now Your too far gone, stay outta my song, I’m movin’ on You’re too far gone; you got it all wrong, I’m movin on You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be You want me to change my point of view, but that’s not me You say I’m a fool, to be more than I can be Say I’m a fool Say I’m a fool Say I’m a fool You’re playin’ it cool but we’re as through as through can be

Crime 03:22
Crime We’re sittin' on a time bomb In a new atomic age Everybody’s got to have one for a rainy day Talking revolution Do you see the signs? You can buy a ticket into heaven But can you spare a dime? Isn’t it a crime? Isn’t it a crime? We’re runnin’ outta time Runnin’ outta time You say it’s evolution Crawlin’ from the slime You sayin’ the solution’s too confusin’, musta been designed If you gotta million good excuses, better get in line Isn’t it a crime? Isn’t it a crime? We’re runnin’ outta time Runnin’ outta time Isn’t it a crime? Isn’t it a crime? We’re runnin’ outta time Runnin’ outta time We’re born to love We learn to hate We’re born to love We learn to hate Isn’t it a crime? Isn’t it a crime? We’re runnin’ outta time Runnin’ outta time Isn’t it a crime? Isn’t it a crime? We’re runnin’ outta time Runnin’ outta time Do we really mind? Do we really mind?

High as the Moon When your work is done The battle’s never won And if you fall apart Just keep it in your heart Sometimes it’s just o.k. To step out of your day Get as high as the moon And fly from your room And look down on your world And see how small it all can be Who could hurt you now? You’re original, somehow So paint your restless life With colours of the night Nothing’s in your way Step out of your day Get as high as the moon And fly from your room And look down on your world And see how small it all can be Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh, How small it all can be Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh Nothing’s in your way Just step out of your day Get as high as the moon And fly, fly from your room And look down on your world And see how small we all can be Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh Ooooh, ooooh, ooooh How small we all can be How small we all can be High, high as the moon High, high as the moon High, high as the moon

We’ll Get There We’ll get there when we get there And we’ll know when we know We’re crawling down the sidewalks Of this black’n’white old town We’re shadows in the sunshine Ain’t gonna turn the music down And every step we take will keep us Going on and on and on And every move we make will lead us To the place where we belong We’ll get there when we get there And we’ll know when we know We’ll get there when we get there We’ve got a long, long way to go Yeah, life’s a competition On your mark, get ready, go Don’t turn it into fiction, baby This ain’t no one man show, no And every step we take will keep us Going on and on and on And every move we make, the next turn off Maybe the yellow brick road, yeah We’re marching on, can’t stop this song We’ll get there when we get there And we’ll know when we know We’ll get there when we get there We’ve got a long, long way to go We’ve gotta long, long way to go Fasten your seatbelt, here we go Round’n’round’n’round we go Rocking all around the globe Round’n’round’n’round we go Down a never ending road

Down To You 03:55
Down To You Here comes the queen of all the wanna-bes Watch her walk across the room Now she’s dancing with the enemy She’s just a girl who got too old, too fast, too soon Now it all comes down to you It all comes down to you It all comes down to you Life is one big ‘Do I know you? I don’t think we’ve met before' And now you find no one’s in line To buy you drinks no more Now it all comes down to you It all comes down to you Now it all comes down to you It all comes down to you No matter who you do Down to youuuuuuuu Down to youuuuuuuu Down to youuuuuuuu Down to youuuuuuuu Now it all comes down to you It all comes down to you Now it all comes down to you It all comes down to you Now you’ll have to face the truth Down to youuuuuuuu Down to youuuuuuuu Down to youuuuuuuu Down to youuuuuuuu

Wake Up 03:57
Wake Up Time flies I’m riding on its wings again It’s a nice ride, enjoying the view from here Next stop is the top of the world Closer to the sun Am I the only one? Watching you build bridges just to burn ‘em down Wake up No time for dreaming now, dreaming now Wake up The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now I say, it’s time for you pay the bill You say it’s time to take my sleeping pill History’s gonna repeat Knock you off your feet But you keep building bridges just to burn ‘em down Wake up No time for dreaming now, dreaming now Wake up The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now I just don’t know how anyone couldn’t see the dream was a lie Wake up No time for dreaming now, dreaming now Wake up The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now Wake up No time for dreaming now, dreaming now Wake up The walls are fallin’ down, fallin’ down now

I'm Raining 03:52
I’m Raining I wanna steal your smile And put it back on mine Looking through your eyes To a world that seemed so fine I can hear your words Sayin’ everything’s o.k. But I’m forgettin’ to remember To forget my yesterdays Looks like I’m raining I’m raining Oooh We built our love upon the sand And covered it with lies When the tide came rollin’ in It washed away and died I turned around and found myself Shattered in my tears Just me against the world again A voice that no one hears Looks like I’m raining I’m raining I’m raining Raining, down on me They say love is something that money cannot buy If I could say just one thing, I’d paint it in the sky Here we go, chasing sunshine, chasing sunshine, ehh!! Bring back the sunshine Looks like it’s raining It’s raining Raining Looks like it’s raining Down on me Down on me Down on me
